Dear Mike,

I have been undergoing chemotherapy and am handling it pretty well, except I am always tired. I heard you speak one time on the radio about how certain foods and supplements can help with fatigue. Can you tell me more about it and make some suggestions for me?

Dear Mike,

  My back and joints are constantly hurting. I have been diagnosed with a mild case of arthritis, but the docs don't know what to do about my back and the pain is pretty bad. Although nothing seems out of place, my back seems to hurt every day, even when I haven't lifted anything. The doc recommended aspirin, but I don't like the way it treats my stomach, so my wife suggested I write you about natural methods to help. Have any suggestions?

NutritionDear Mike,

  A friend told me I should take Milk thistle for my liver, which I have damaged with alcohol and medications. I am not sure why I should take it, and even what it is supposed to do. What do you think?

Dear Mike,

I recently visited a nutritional consultant that gave me a mail-in test after suspecting I had an "underactive" thyroid. The lab called me to inform me I had a low "TSH". I don't know what that means and what to do about it. The lab technician said I would probably have to be on medication. Is that right?

I realize there are no magic bullets for acne and skin are, but I was wondering if you had any nutritional suggestions for acne problems?
