DR GARETH: Dr Casey's Complementary medicine.

QI'M in my 80s and my eyes are starting to fail a bit. Is there anything to help care for them?

AIF you haven't already, you should see any eye specialist. But you can also try the antioxidant supplement Selenium-ACE. Take one tablet daily with your main meal. Also, have a small glass of carrot juice in the morning.

QMY husband needs lumbar surgery. Is there anything he could try beforehand to help his chances of success?

ASMOKING and obesity can increase the risks of surgery so aim to reduce both. Taking homoeopathic arnica 30c before and after the operation can aid healing and minimise bruising. Try a dose of two tablets every hour two days beforehand and as quickly as possible afterwards until he's well on the mend. It can be used in conjunction with any conventional medication.

QMY 16-year-old daughter has decided to become a vegan. I'm not against the idea but I'm concerned about her calcium levels. How can I ensure she gets all the essential nutrients she needs?

ASHE will be fine as long as she eats and drinks cow's milk substitutes, such as soya or goat's milk, and eats plenty of fresh leafy dark green vegetables such as spinach. Look how strong it made Popeye! I'd also recommend a Vitamin B-100 Complex tablet. Give her one a day with her main meal and Urticalcin to provide her with calcium. Give her three tablets dissolved slowly under the tongue before swallowing. You can buy both products in most health stores. QWHAT will ease the pain of fibromyalgia?

A A NEW type of holistic treatment has been reported to significantly improve the quality of life of fibromyalgia sufferers. It combines a diet rich in alkaline foods and the use of specific homoeopathic remedies, namely arnica, bryonia or Rhus Tox depending upon the symptoms. Contact your local homoeopathic practitioner/health store for details. QI'M 55 and sometimes I can't think straight and often forget people's names. It's embarrassing and worrying. I'm on no medication and am otherwise healthy.

AWE all experience lapses in memory but when it occurs on a frequent basis, alarm bells start ringing. Try a three-month course of Gingko Phytosome, taking one capsule twice daily with meals. Even if you experience a slight improvement, continue long term for maximum benefit. Gingko Phytosome can be ordered on 01292 317670
