Hello, yellow teeth or stains and bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly. For whiter teeth you can go for bleaching or whitening.

I am 35 years old and facing psoriasis for last 6 months on my skull, lower leg, front stomach and upper arm.
Hey lybrate-user, as you are 35 years old and facing psoriasis problem on your skull, lower leg, front stomach and upper arm, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients. For more info you can contact clinic. At present more than 4000 patients suffering from psoriasis are under my treatment and we are getting very good results.

Hi firstly get a flexible laryngoscopy done to look for the condition of your voice box. Depending on that doctor would be able to tell you why your voice has become feeble. No medications will help for this problem. And if you had accident that might have injured tissues in the neck will take sone time for it to heal. Do consult a speech therapist after the ent consultation. Take care.

Most useful home remedies for reducing headaches and migraine pain involves making changes to your diet. Certain foods have been shown to affect the frequency and severity of headaches and migraine pain, including dairy; chocolate; peanut butter; certain fruits, such as avocado, banana, and citrus; onions; meats with nitrates, foods containing monosodium glutamate (msg); foods containing tyramine, an amino acid found in red wine; and foods that are fermented or pickled. Keep track of these trigger foods and your reaction to them with a food diary.

It's not abnormal to suffer with loss of libido but it doesn't mean that you are deprived of sex fire ever. With a bit of increase in apter'vrushya' diet and'vrushya' herbs, you may regain libido. Some technical aspects such as extension of foreplay and delayed'intromission' are added advantage. Proper herbal medicines are very effective but some prerequisites like'agnisamyata' are required'vrushya' means capable of increasing quantity and quality of semen and'agnisamyata' means balancing the digestive fire. A whole portion of ayurveda is dedicated to'vajikaran' means'sex like horse' or for that matter sexual health. Pl do not take any advertised items. Meet any experienced ayurveda doctor near you or consult lybrate ayurveda doctor.

Fresh fruits are always better They rich source of water, fibres, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates etc necessary for metabolism Dry fruits are rich source of fatty acids, fibres, minerals and some vitamins. So many vitamins are lost during the process of drying. Fresh fruits are easily digestible, To increase physical strength, one have to do regular exercises,should take home made fresh food containing less spices and oil, salads and fruits before lunch, and some dry fruits at evening along with dinner or separately with milk Dry fruits alone won't work.

We shouldn't neglect Vitamin D deficiency,Why?



We all live with the preconceived notion that India, being a tropical country will never face vitamin D deficiencies. But if you just take a look around you, you'll find that most of your friends are suffering from ailments like calcium deficiencies, bone problems, back aches, etc. Here we discuss why Indians should not ignore vitamin D deficiencies. 

 

India is located between 8.4 and 37.6 degrees N latitude, with a majority of us living in regions that receive ample sunlight throughout the year. Historically, we have obtained most of our vitamin D through adequate sun exposure. However, the modern Indian spends a considerable amount of time indoors. Many of us have a preference for traditional clothing, which covers a major portion of our body. Others factors that come into play are the rising pollution levels and darker skin pigmentation. All of these factors add up to the fact that we Indians face a growing trend of reduced sun exposure. As we are all aware, inadequate sun exposure results in reduced vitamin D synthesis and ultimately, poor vitamin D status, if not compensated by dietary intake.

 

Surprisingly, dietary vitamin D intake is significantly low in India, mainly due to low consumption of vitamin D-rich foods coupled with an absence of fortification and low use of food supplements. As a result, India has a poor vitamin D status overall.

 

Experts say that vitamin D deficiency is pandemic, yet it is the most under-diagnosed and under-treated nutritional deficiency in the world. India is no different, with a prevalence of 70 to 100 percent. Published literature specific to India confirms the need to fortify food staples with vitamin D, stimulate public health policies for vitamin D supplementation and outline dietary guidelines tailored to the Indian diet.

 

Poor vitamin D levels result in increased incidences of bone disorders including osteoporosis, osteomalacia in adults,  rickets and other bone deformities in children. Without joint efforts, there may be a dramatic increase in the number of bone disorders, and other serious diseases may lie ahead.

 

One need not be surprised that the world's second most populous country, with a population of over 1.2 billion has around 500 million vegetarians. Vegetarianism is very much a mainstream way of life, with 42 percent of Indian households eschewing meat, fish and eggs.

 

Vegetarianism is a popular practice in India and it originates from ethical and religious factors; this practice of abstaining from the consumption of animals is often out of support for animal rights. Vegetarianism partially came about due to economic reasons, too, since animal foods were comparatively expensive. As per reliable sources, foods that provide vitamin D include fatty fish like tuna, mackerel, and salmon, cod liver oil and percomorph liver oil, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks. A majority of the above mentioned foods are not a part of the regular diets of many non-vegetarians in India.


It is now proven that without a highly determined national effort to screen for vitamin D status to implement policies or guidelines for vitamin D fortification and supplementation and to re-assess recommended dietary intake guidelines, there will be a dramatic increase in the number of bone disorders and other diseases across the nation.

Treating Cold & Cough With Homeopathy

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Common cold and cough is one of the most common viral illnesses that have no specific treatment. Allopathic medicines provide palliative cure to just treat the symptoms, there is no definite antiviral for it. There is also popular belief having cold once or twice a year is a good way to cleanse the body.

Here is the homeopathic treatment for it:

1. Influenzinum - It is a homeopathic remedy for flu. The medicine, which is diluted and potentized, strengthens the immune system to fight against flu viruses. It does not suppress the symptoms but makes your immune system strong to not allow foreign viruses affect your health.

2. Aconitum or aconite: Used in the early stages of a cold that was sudden in onset and severe. There could be associated nasal discharge, fever and chills, chest congestion, itchy throat, and a traumatic experience. The person may also feel thirsty, anxious, and agitated.

3. Allium cepa: Severe burning and watery eyes, nasal irritation, copious amounts of discharge, hoarseness, and headache. The runny nose improves in open air, but worsens when being indoors.

4. Aconite - This homeopathic medicine is recommended when the most preliminary signs of common cold appear, such as getting thirsty frequently and being overly-anxious.

5. Belladonna - Belladonna is for more severe signs of cold, such as high fever and persistence of a throbbing headache.

6. Natrum mur - This medicine is effective for a runny nose, with initially clear snot thickening after a period of 24-48 hours.

7. Pulsatilla: yellow or greenish mucous, nasal congestion, mouth breathing are some symptoms where this is used. It is very commonly used in newborn babies, if the discharge colour is green or yellow. Associated symptoms include moodiness, easy crying, craving for attention, easily hurt and sensitive. Homeopathy does'cure' the cough and cold in patients, in the true sense of the word. That provides palliative care and holistic treatment of the condition too.
