RAMADHAN FOOD & HEALTH_____________________________________________________________
[♦] Lemons: Digestive Health During Ramadhan — Lemons are so beneficial. They aid the digestive process by stimulating the release of gastric juices. Lemons also improve liver function and encourage bowel regularity.
However, Check with your doctor before making changes to your current food regime. And do not use lemon juice if you have advanced kidney disease or adrenal stress.As always, this is not meant as medical advice.

[♦] Question: Does a nosebleed break the fast?
[♦] Answer: A nosebleed does not break the fast, because it is not by the choice of the person who has it. —–Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen @ FatwaIslam
[♦] Question: What is the ruling on a fasting person using an inhaler for breathing problems, and does it break the fast?
[♦] Answer: This spray is vaporised and does not reach the stomach, so in that case, we say that there is no objection to using it when you are fasting, and it will not cause you to break your fast, because as we have said, none of its particles enter the stomach. Since it is something that is defused and vaporised, and it disappears, then none of it reaches the stomach, therefore it is permissible for you to use it when you are fasting and the fast is not invalidated by it. —– Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen @ FatwaIslam
[♦] Question: What is the ruling on a blood test for a fasting person, does it break the fast?
[♦] Answer: The fasting person does not invalidate his fast due to the removal of blood for the purpose of a blood test, because the doctor needs to take blood from the sick person in order to do tests on it, so this does not break the fast. It is only a small amount of blood which does not affect the body in the same way cupping does, so it does not break the fast. The fundamental principle is that the fast remains valid, and we cannot make it invalid without some legal evidence, and there is no evidence that a fasting person breaks his fast by such a small amount of blood.
But as for taking a lot of blood from a fasting person for the purpose of giving a transfusion to another person who is in need of it for example, if a large quantity of blood was taken which has the same effect on his body as cupping, then his fast will be broken thereby.
Based upon this, if the fast in an obligatory one, then it is not permissible for a person to donate this large amount of blood to anyone, unless this person to whom blood is donated is in danger and it is not possible for him to wait until after sunset. This would be if the doctors have determined that the blood of this fasting person will benefit him and remove the harm from the patient. In these circumstances, there is no objection to him donating his blood, breaking his fast, and eating and drinking, so that his strength will return to him. He must also make up for the day in which he broke his fast. And Allaah knows best. —–
