Answered by Sumiya Sulthana

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is way back to our ancient times we are in diet emphasis on eating a primarily plant-based diet like fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, and nuts replacing butter with Olive oil using herbs and spices instead of salt. A vegetarian-based, fish and poultry food diet are typically found if you look food pyramid. It has a great impact overall with weight reduction, heart-healthy diet as well to manage HTN (hypertension) and cholesterol.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
