Heart Palpitations

Heart Palpitations I’m 23, and after three visits to A&E in one month, with frightening palpitations and fainting fits, I’ve been diagnosed with mild mitral valve proplapse. Apparently I fit the standard profile: young, naturally thin, with hyperextendable elbows! I’ve been prescribed Cardicor and told to retum to work. My symptoms – dizziness, feeling heavy and weak, insomnia, pressure behind the eyes, palpitations and ectopic heartbeat – have not eased. So I’m anxious and work is difficult. Can you suggest any altemative measures?


Haemorrhoid My six-year old son has a haemorrhoid, which is only visible after he goes to the loo. Because our GP could not see it, nothing has been done. My son doesn't complain of pain or itchiness but I’m worried that it might get worse and don't understand why he has this problem. He eats lots of fruit and vegetables and drinks plenty of fluids. Please can you advise me?

Hamster Cheeks

Hamster Cheeks Can you tell me why, although I'm not at all over night, I have puffy fat in my jowls -hamster cheeks! This problem started after I had part of one ovary removed. I've heard that it might be to do with the ovaries not functioning. Would a facial muscle-toning machine help? Short of liposuction, what can I do? I’ve started taking the herb agnus castus but haven't noticed any improvement yet.

Heavy Periods

Heavy Periods For the past four months, my teenage daughter has experienced heavy, painful periods that seem to occur every 15 days or so. We consulted her GP, who has suggested that we put her on the pill for six months to stabilise the situation. We are not happy about this course of action. What is your advice?

Hay Fever I dread the spring because I get such terrible hay fever. What do you suggest I do to prevent and/or treat it?

Hair Fall

Hair Fall Over the past two years, my 19-year-old daughter has lost 50 per cent of her hair. A year ago I took her to see a trichologist who suggested that the pressure of exams was causing stress-related hair loss. She gave us hair treatments, none of which has worked. My daughter is now happily settled at university, but her hair looks worse. Is there anything you can suggest? I read that stress leads to increased levels of testosterone, which can cause hair loss.

Hair Loss
