Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Hi, There are two types of insomnia: primary insomnia and secondary insomnia. Primary insomnia: Primary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems that are not directly associated with any other health condition or problem. Secondary insomnia: Secondary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems because of something else, such as a health condition (like asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heartburn); pain; medication they are taking; or a substance they are using (like alcohol). Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Management: Here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: Keep your bedroom cool and dark Put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime Stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends Stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals Skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos./ once daily at night for 1 month. For concentration: Take homoeopathic medicine - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Take 6-9 hrs. Of sound sleep at same time daily. -Make a clear plan that meets your needs beforehand. Take 5 or 10 minutes break in between, and use this time to check email, and then close your inbox and move on to your most important task. When making a plan be sure to allocate enough time for entertainment, studies and sleep. -Choose a place of your choice for concentration. School libraries, study lounges and private rooms are the best. Above all, the place that you choose should not be distracting. Try to stay away from other people if you want to concentrate on your work. -Develop a controlled and balanced diet. Overeating creates a huge load of digestion and can make you feel uncomfortable and sleepy. Eating light and healthy meals can help you maximize your ability to concentrate. -The ability to concentrate depends a lot upon our physical well-being. If we are tired, unhealthy and afflicted by numerous minor ailments, concentration will be more difficult. Of course, concentration is still possible, but it is just more difficult. -Continuous work in the same place can drive anyone crazy. Taking constant breaks can solve the problem. This will make you active and more interested in your topic. -Know that practice makes perfect. Concentration is an activity like any other. Clearly the more we practice, the better our concentration will become. -Do work at a desk, not your bed. -Blood is the main vehicle of oxygen in our bodies. But blood gets pooled in the lower half of our bodies as a result of gravity, and doesn't push as much oxygen to the brain, where it helps improve concentration. In order to help oxygenate the brain, get up and take a walk every so often to get the blood pumping. Hypercholesterolemia: High blood cholesterol is treated with lifestyle changes and medicines. There are few risk factors: Cigarette smoking High blood pressure (140/90 mmHg or higher), or you’re on medicine to treat high blood pressure Low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (less than 40 mg/dL) Family history of early heart disease (heart disease in father or brother before age 55; heart disease in mother or sister before age 65) Age (men 45 years or older; women 55 years or older) Food to be avoided: -Saturated fat which is found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods. -You also should try to limit the amount of sodium (salt) that you eat. -Try to limit drinks with alcohol. Too much alcohol will raise your blood pressure and triglyceride level. Food to be taken: -Whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal and oat bran -Fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, pears, and prunes -Legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chick peas, black-eyed peas, and lima beans -A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can increase important cholesterol-lowering compounds in your diet. -A healthy diet also includes some types of fish, such as salmon, tuna (canned or fresh), and mackerel. These fish are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids may help protect the heart from blood clots and inflammation and reduce the risk of heart attack. Try to have about two fish meals every week. If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can help lower LDL cholesterol. Routine physical activity can lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and raise your HDL cholesterol level. Medication: Homoeopathic medicine - Cholesterinum 30/ thrice daily for 4 weeks.

If you examined your self with cardiac expert n after doing your ecg many times if ecg reports are coming normal. First rule out that your heart is working normal or not by doing 2 d echo & tmt. If they are both normal then we can say you r suffering from acid peptic disorder. If pain relieves by taking omeprazole like acidity reducing drugs then we can confirm it. And problem can b solved by herbal preparation. So do all above n consult.

5 Indian foods that lower cholesterol

Unani Specialist, Delhi
5 Indian foods that lower cholesterol
5 Indian foods that lower cholesterol

When we are diagnosed with high cholesterol levels, we straight away start popping pills. Having high cholesterol levels does not mean we are ill, it means that we are not eating right.

By changing our dietary habits and staying away from processed and fat rich food, we can keep our cholesterol levels in check. Here are some indian foods that help in lowering the cholesterol levels:

Methi

Methi seeds are rich in a compound called saponins that reduce cholesterol absorption from food. They also help in lowering the production of cholesterol in the body

How to use:

Roast methi seeds till they turn brown. Make a powder from the roasted seeds. And add one spoon of powder to a glass of to warm water and have it daily

Garlic

Garlic, contains allicin which helps lower total cholesterol, bad cholesterol and triglycerides. It also prevents fat deposition within blood vessels.

How to use:

Crush 2- 3 garlic cloves and add them to a glass of water. Take it empty stomach every morning.

Onion

Onions are rich sources of antioxidants. They also help reduce bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol levels in the body.

How to use

Add sliced onion to your daily salads regularly

Walnuts

Walnuts are rich sources of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids and help in reducing cholesterol levels. They also help in keeping blood vessels healthy

How to use

Take a handful of walnuts (40g) daily. You can add them to breakfast cereals, fruit salads or take them as a snack. Make sure the walnuts are not salted or sugar coated.

Flax seeds

Flax seeds also called linseed or alsi are packed with omega 3 fatty acids. They are rich in fiber that binds to cholesterol and decreases its absorption from foods. Flax seeds also help in increasing good cholesterol levels.

How to use:

Grind the seeds into a fine powder. Add one teaspoon of this powder to water and have it first thing in the morning daily. You can also sprinkle a spoonful of flax seeds to breakfast cereals, chutnies or salads.

I am 35 age but severely getting BP. Is there any suggestion ?

Alternative Medicine,
I am 35 age but severely getting BP. Is there any suggestion ?
Hi , its not unusual for people of your age to get bp. The reasons could be either many or none at all. Sometimes, its simply essential (idiopathic) hypertension with no known cause. On the other hand, mostly, it is because of lifestyle issues and also can be attributed to stress at work. I would advise you first to consult a medicine specialist / a cardiologist at the earliest. He/ she may appropriately advise further diagnostics to understand the underlying cause, if any, and may also require referring you to other specialists including a nephrologist consultation. Simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other greesy/ oily & fatty foods. Ensure that you streamline your lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. See how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps. You may please connect with me in private, for a discussion, should you require still. All the best. Sincerely,
