Dear Eva Joanna
It may be due to general weakness. Try the following for 1 month and see the results.
1. Soak 8 to 10 Almonds and 2 to 3 Walnuts in water and leave it over night. Remove the skin of Almonds and Walnuts. Eat them every morning on empty stomach.
2. Also soak 15 to 20 Raisins in water for whole night. Eat those raisins every morning and drink that water also.
3. Take 1 Carrot, 1 Beetroot and 2 Oranges. Have a fresh glass of juice every day in the morning and evening. You can also include Carrots, Beetroots and Oranges in your daily diet.
4. I also suggest you to go for some yoga or exercise classes. It will improve the blood circulation in your body and will make your organs healthy.
