Hello Doctor, Thanks for your reply. My illness is that I don't feel good, feel kind of weird. I fell a little dizzy. My doctor did couple blood tests. And couldn't figure out what the problem was. I went to see a Chinese Medicine Doctor. She said my problem is mal-nutrition. She might be right. Ever since I had the teeth implants, my diet was bad, I couldn't chew real well, And I lost 25 lbs since. I'll try to eat more. Do you agree with her? Let me know what you think. Thanks. Regards,XXXX

Brief Answer: Reduced nutrition can be a reason... Detailed Answer: Dear XXXX, Feeling "Not good", weird and dizzy can occur due to multiple reasons. If you haven't been eating well for long time, it may be a reason. But there are other conditions which could be causing you the troubles. I hope your doctors have excluded all other reasons. If they have, then perhaps improving your nutrition, practicing a healthy lifestyle and good sleep will help you improve from this illness. At this point of time, with only unwell, weird and dizzy as the history I am unable to list other differential causes which your doctor needs to look at. Therefore I sincerely hope your doctor is right. Add a better diet, include protein and vitamin supplements, practice exercise, yoga and other form of meditation and make sure you sleep well. Hope this helps. Regards

Hello Doctor, Thanks for your response. My family doctor didn't know what my problem was. So, I went to a Chinese Medicine Doctor. She is the one told me about my nutrition. I think I'll try that first. I'll keep you posted. If you don't mind. Regards,XXXX
