My mother is suffering from Payeria problem since 1 year. She used to take the extracts of Guava Leaf for this problem. But then also she is not getting any relief. She is also suffering from Thyroid problems and having low blood pressure. She is taking thyronorm 50mg and Folvite Tablets 5mg. Please guide me how to prevent from these. She is 45 years old. Hoping for your kind and immediate response.

Mr. Lybrate-user, pyorrhea is invariably due to unhealthy food habits, not taking enough care to clean the mouth, lack of vitamin c and infection due to injury to gums etc. Proper brushing and regular massaging the gums and use of astringent gels helps in controlling bleeding in gums. Plus regular vitamin c supplement should be used. Use mouth wash regularly to control oral infection. Better to consult a near by dental surgeon.

Madam you are under the care of a good experienced doctor. Your thhyroid hormone levels are with in normal limit. Your sugar levels (fasting is a bit high, are also good. You have not mentioned the hba1c%. But looking at your height and weight you are having grade 2 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be 51 kgs, which means you are having 39 kgs extra. For this you need to look at reducing the weight by at least 5 to 8% in next six to eight months. One can reduce about 1/2 kg per week by reducing daily intake by 500 calories, plus doing regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day. In fact your dietary intake has to be based on your ideal body weight and not on your current weight.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism And its Homeopathic Remedies!

Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in your body. Hypothyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland of your body is unable to produce the thyroid hormones like T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Hypothyroidism can occur due to the inflammation of the thyroid gland or as a result of previous thyroid treatments, where a major portion of the thyroid producing cells has been removed. Hypothyroidism is more common in women. But, it can develop in any person irrespective of age or sex.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are as follows:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Increased feeling of cold
  3. Dryness of skin
  4. Constipation
  5. Depression
  6. Obesity
  7. Increased blood cholesterol level
  8. Your muscles may be become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
  9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, but it may vary from person to person. Hypothyroidism is a very common problem and homeopathy offers a very safe, painless and effective treatment for hypothyroidism.

The following are few of the homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism:

  1. Calcarea carbonica: This medicine is advised to people suffering from obesity and increased sensitiveness to cold temperature.
  2. Sepia officinalis: This medicine is suggested to people suffering from irregular menstrual cycle and increased sensitivity to cold.
  3. Nux vomica: Nux vomica is prescribed when the patient shows symptom of depression.
  4. Lycopodium clavatum: This medicine is given to people having gastric troubles or encountering excessive hair fall.

Along with these, there are various other medicines such as Iodium, thyroidinum, spongia, lycopus and lapis albus. But it is highly recommended for you to visit a homeopathic physician to receive correct advice before taking any medication by yourself.

Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ulhasnagar
Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

You can overcome your diabetes by gaining some knowledge about what to eat and what not.

1)Completely stop consumption of sugary foods, artificial sweetness, canned juices and any other sweet preparation.

2)Start substituting your wheat flour with bajra/jowar flour/whole wheat flour to reduce your glucose intake.

3)Include a plate raw veggies before your meal to increase your fibre content as it helps to lower down your sugar levels.

4)Substitute your meals with red or brown rice instead of white rice to increase fiber.

5)Flaxseeds (not to roast) are an excellent source of fibre n omega 3 fatty acids n are known to reduce your glucose levels naturally.

6)Cinnamon tea is one of best remedies to reduce your insulin dosage as it contains chromium pincolate which diverts the glucose from the food we get to the muscle cells n must be taken after dinner.

7)Drinking of kokam water before meals (soaked in water for two hours)
Helps to bring down your sugar levels and is a natural cure for diabetes.

8)Fruits that have high glycemic index are not recommended like mango, chikkoo, custard apple etc

9)Lastly exercise for at least 50mins a day is a key to achieve good health.

For a more detailed diet chart and how to plan your menus for issues like diabetes, thyroid, anemia, obesity, gastritis, pregnancy, gastric ulcers consult privately.

Consult doctor always for medicines. Do not take medicines by self. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.

Hi when one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, to achieve good control tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units /l. If that is achieved then most symptoms are in control and weight reduction is also possible. As regards the other tablets particularly lpuineme, fdson they are really not essential, given as vitamin supplement. D3 is some times needed. But most important for you is to achieve strict control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

lybrate-user, When glucose level goes too low (hypoglycemia), then there is counter regulatory mechanism activated in the body. This leads to release of a hormone Glucagon from alpha cells in the pancreas. That hormone causes breakdown of glycogen in the liver, producing glucose, which in turn increases blood glucose. Body can not tolerate low glucose state for long time. Hence, this counter regulatory mechanism is activated. Thanks.

You are suffering from vidagdhajeerna. The best treatment is langhana. Be exclusively on diet of boiled & salted moong for 5 days. Nothing else. Have mix of saunf/ jeera & ajwain after every meal. Drink water boiled with dhaniya seeds. Revert & consult privately after 5 days for further guidance.

I am 41 years old. Kindly tell me is obemac is safe to use. Or it has some side effects? I am a hyper thyroid patient. please suggest soon.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Obemac is a fat burner. But, most fat burners in my experience have majorly not worked. Most people take it as a “trial and error” product meaning that they only find out that most often it's not really effective after trying it. Keep in mind that obemac is not recommended for people with cardiac problems. Most people claim to have experience little or no difference at all after using a fat burner. Like any fat burner there are chances of side effects. Give your body a chance to lose weight by natural and healthy ways. That's more lasting.

My advice for your wife is t. Pantocid 40 once daily before breakfast. You can report me the response after 10 days. I am taking it for granted that you must have already tested for conditions that may mimic acidity at this age, if not consult local doctor or myself. Coming to your status, 80-120 is too big a range to recomnend anything. Do dietary restriction with limited fat and sweets and regular exercise. After 3 month, test fasting, 2 hour post meal blood glucose and hba1c. If it comes in diabetic range, you'll require therapy. At this moment you don't need any medicine. Regards.

Homeopathy - Can it Help Treat Infertility in Women?

Homeopathy - Can it Help Treat Infertility in Women?

For a married couple, having a child is the next step to completing the family picture. However, for various reasons, some attributed to the male and some to the female, this picture remains incomplete.
Talking to a doctor is one of the best starting points. There could be deep-rooted causes for this issue, and homeopathy aims in treating the root cause and not just infertility. A good homeopath will ask you numerous questions to find out associated symptoms, family history, etc., and then arrive at a remedy that would work best for you. This is a highly customised therapy and so self-medication based on a friend or family member’s recommendation is best avoided.

Infertility in females is often caused by the following reasons:

  1. Irregular menstruation
  2. Hormonal imbalance
  3. Advancing age
  4. Emotional stress
  5. Obesity
  6. Excessive smoking
  7. Alcohol consumption
  8. Sexually transmitted diseases (Chlamydia, gonorrhoea)
  9. Structural abnormalities in the pelvic area including fibroids, pelvic adhesions, blocked fallopian tubes, etc.
  10. Endometriosis
  11. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  12. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  13. Thyroid disorders
  14. Diabetes

With more and more women coming out in the open to discuss, researchers have started working towards identifying the problem and working towards the treatment. The success rate of homeopathy in treating infertility is also on the rise. As with any medical condition, homeopathy treats not just the problem or symptom at hand, but the person holistically. Read on to know some of the common homeopathic remedies, but make sure you have a detailed discussion with doctor to identify what would work best for you. Self-medication is best avoided.

  1. In women with reduced sexual drive, Agnus and Sepia are widely used. The vaginal is extremely dry which could be painful during sex. There is also a bearing down sensation of the uterus in these women.
  2. In women with reduced menstruation, Pulsatilla and Sepia are widely used. The periods are never on the expected date, and when they occur, the flow is quite scanty and suppressed. Pulsatilla is also used when ovarian cysts are present. Sepia is useful in women that are prone to miscarriages.
  3. In women with excessive menstruation, Calcarea and Aletris are widely used. The periods happen before time, is too long with profuse bleeding. This excessive bleeding also causes anaemia, weakness, and fatigue. These women might also have frequent abortions.
  4. In women who have experienced a miscarriage in their third month earlier, with uterine and ovarian inflammation, Sabina is used.
  5. In women who are not able to retain sperms, Natrum carb is useful. There could be an offensive smelling vaginal discharge which is also very irritating and itching.

These are just some of the common remedies, but there are more, and each patient would require different therapy based on associated symptoms.

uric acid is produced when the body breaks down a chemical called purine. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. Medication also is needed to manage pain and to lower levels of uric acid. Purpose a little history selected seafood. Avoid the following types of seafood, which are higher in purines than others: anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, haddock, mackerel and tuna. Alcohol. The metabolism of alcohol in your body is thought to increase uric acid production, and alcohol contributes to dehydration. Beer is associated with an increased risk of gout and recurring attacks, as are distilled liquors to some extent. The effect of wine is not as well-understood. If you drink alcohol, talk to your doctor about what is appropriate for you. Vitamin c. Vitamin c may help lower uric acid levels. Talk to your doctor about whether a 500-milligram vitamin c supplement fits into your diet and medication plan. Coffee. Some research suggests that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of gout, particularly with regular caffeinated coffee. Drinking coffee may not be appropriate for other medical conditions. Talk to your doctor about how much coffee is right for you. Cherries. There is some evidence that eating cherries is associated with a reduced risk of gout attacks. A sample menu here's a look at what you might eat during a typical day on a gout diet: breakfast whole-grain, unsweetened cereal with skim or low-fat milk 1 cup fresh strawberries coffee water lunch roasted chicken breast slices (2 ounces) on a whole-grain roll with mustard mixed green salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing skim or low-fat milk water afternoon snack 1 cup fresh cherries water dinner roasted salmon (3-4 ounces) roasted or steamed green beans 1/2 cup whole-grain pasta with olive oil and lemon pepper water low-fat yogurt 1 cup fresh melon caffeine-free beverage, such as herbal tea.
