Dear Lybrate user, First of all, you can't take immediately ayurvedic medicines instead of allopathic medicine. But first start to take ayurvedic medicines and follow the diet chart regarding your blood pressure and then slowly decrease the dose of allopathic medicine and gradually you can come in ayurvedic medicines. Slowly. Slowly. But one thing ayurvedic medicines are very safe. There is no side effects. So it will good for your health. For more details, diet chart and medicine consult me.

Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.

Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.
Heart palpitations are a feeling that your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering. You may notice heart palpitations in your chest, throat, or neck. Heart palpitations can be bothersome or frightening. They usually aren't serious or harmful, though, and often go away on their own. Most of the time, they're related to stress and anxiety or to consumption of stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. Palpitations also often occur during pregnancy. In rare cases, palpitations can be a sign of a more serious heart condition. Therefore, if you have heart palpitations, make arrangements to see your doctor. And seek immediate medical attention if along with palpitations, you experience shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or fainting. A thorough physical examination and Medical History of your problem is required to rule out for any underlying cause. If an underlying cause is found, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate palpitations. If your palpitations are not related to an underlying cause, lifestyle changes, including stress management and the avoidance of common triggers, can help prevent them. Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you . ACONITE NAP 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 5-10 minutes during increased heart beat .Take it till your heart beat is normal.

Kindly take chandraprabha vati tabs, 2 tabs, twice a day with warm water, after meals (chew the tabs for best results). Take warm water and liquid diet like daliya, khichdi, moong daal soup in your routine. Cut down sugar, salt in your diet. Make sure you take sleep 7 to 8 hrs at night regularly. Go for a steady walk at least for 20 -25 mins daily in the morning. Do anuloma and viloma for 10 -15 mins as routine. Eat slowly, avoid sleeping day time. Continue the regime for 1 month. Check our bp every third day and keep it as record. This regime will solve all your problems. Stay in touch, good luck.

It is normal for BP to fluctuate. At time HTN during pregnancy resolves post pregnancy. You can try staying off medications for a 5-7 days and then get your BP rechecked. If it is normal no need for BP medication. Also stay in follow up of a cardiologist for BP management. For palpitations you can get a ECG done when you feel fast heart rate or a 24 HR holter and consult a cardiologist.

I can imagine how difficult life has been for you. I hope you are under medical care. Along with medicines, it will be very helpful for you to be under psychotherapy. The therapist will help you to understand why you are finding it difficult to trust other people and what is your perception about self and others. With a few modifications in behaviour and thinking patterns you would be able to cope up better.

5 Things You Would Experience After Menopause

Gynaecologist, Delhi
5 Things You Would Experience After Menopause

Menopause is the loss of a woman's natural ability to conceive as she approaches the age of 50. The levels of the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone begin to drop disrupting the ovulation and menstruation cycles. There are also associated symptoms of menopause, such as weigh gain, low sex drive and hot flashes. You can also take the package for Living Healthy - Woman.

Here are 5 other problems you may experience after menopause:

  1. Increased level of cholesterol: The human body comprises two types of cholesterol primarily: High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL). The former is known as "good cholesterol". Estrogen helps to keep your HDL high and LDL low. After menopause, the levels of LDL or "bad cholesterol" naturally go up even if HDL levels remain unaltered. Regular physical exercise can prevent the rise in the levels of LDL.
  2. Dry skin: Estrogen is responsible for controlling the production of oil in your body. As estrogen levels fall, the oil secretion falls too. This leads to dry and scaly skin, especially skin of the face and arms. You can use moisturizers and creams to prevent flaking of the skin.
  3. Hair fall: This is also a result of dry skin. The skin of the scalp dries up and cannot provide nourishment to the hair. This causes hair fall. The variability in the levels of the hormones also causes deficiency of certain proteins that are essential for the nails and hair. Use mild herbal shampoos to deal with the problem. Chemical treatment procedures often do more harm than good.
  4. Unsocial tendencies: The irregularities in the production of the female hormones have an impact on your emotional and social behavior. You may want to spend more and more time by yourself instead of socializing with friends and relatives. These are not symptoms of depression or any other psychological condition. It is simply an emotional transference period.
  5. Drowsiness: While insomnia is one of the most symptoms of menopause, the situation somewhat reverses after some time. Menopause causes changes in the body weight, hormone cycles and metabolism. All of these, in turn, affect your energy levels. You feel extremely sleepy during the day, especially in the afternoon. However, sleeping during the day can cause sleeping problems at night. So, do not take a nap for more than half an hour during the day.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Cholesterol levels are deranged. You need to start with lifestyle measures. Change your diet (consult a dietician for detailed diet chart) and start exercising, begin gradually and increase to 45 mins of daily brisk walking or yoga. Stop smoking and quit drinking. Repeat lipid profile 6 weeks after these precautions. If they are still high, you will need medications.

I have a problem of hair fall and chest pain suddenly so I want to know what is the actual problem.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I have a problem of hair fall and chest pain suddenly so I want to know what is the actual problem.
Chest pain and due to sprain or other noncardiac causes and regarding hair fall. In general, you lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day, but the loss is not visible as new hair grow in their place. However, if you lose more than a 100 strands in a day and more than 200 strands on the day you shampoo, you may be suffering from what is known as excessive hair fall. Certain factors or reasons may cause you to lose hair at an alarming rate, which are, 1. Thyroid problems Your thyroid is responsible for your body’s overall functioning. The hormones (primarily T4 and T3), which it produces help in regulating metabolic activities. Problems with your thyroid gland can cause your hormone levels to rise or fall to unhealthy levels, which can result in hair fall. You can improve the functioning of your thyroid gland through a diet rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, protein and Vitamins A, B and C. 2. Scalp infections-Infections of the scalp can also be one of the factors that may cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate. Of the different scalp infections, the ringworm scalp infection is the most common. Although this fungal infection can occur in any part of your body, when it develops on your scalp, you end up losing clumps of hair. Alongside the use of anti-fungal medications, even anti-fungal shampoos and creams can provide you with respite from the problem. 3. Poor diet, Gorging on unhealthy foods or going on a crash diet can result in the lack of essential nutrients in your body, which are required to maintain healthy hair. Furthermore, since hair is made of protein, having a balanced diet consisting of proteins and vitamin- rich foods is a must. 4. Stress gives rise to certain conditions such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (hair loss caused post-pregnancy or surgery) and trichotillomania (an impulsive need to pull your hair out), which can cause you to lose significant amount of hair. To avert a hair loss crisis caused by stress, make it a point to do some simple stress-reducing exercises, such as meditation or breathing exercises. 5. Using hair styling products like hair colours and straighteners can cause you to experience hair fall problems. Your hair not only becomes dull and dry due to their use, but also becomes weak and brittle, leading to a gradual loss of hair. Regular oiling and use of homemade hair masks are some of the ways you can try to counter the negative effects of these hair styling products. 6. The drugs that are used in the treatment of cancer not only destroy the fast-growing cancer cells, but also the healthy blood cells in your body. For this reason, consuming foods that possess cancer-fighting properties (like oatmeal, tomato, almonds, garlic etc) is a sure-shot way of fighting the disease as well as averting any side-effects that may arise because of the treatment. 7. Alopecia areata. Lastly, hair fall can also be caused by alopecia areata, which is a kind of hair loss that takes place when your body’s immune system erroneously attacks your hair follicles, and prevents growth of new hair. 8. Genetics. The origin of your severe hair fall or baldness can be traced back to your ancestors. So, your genes can be a factor behind your hair fall problem. If this is the cause, your body then becomes unable to produce new hair. Apart from the changes that you can make in your lifestyle to address the causes of your hair fall, there are also techniques out there that you can employ to permanently treat your problem, such as platelet rich plasma, mesotherapy, stem cell therapy, ozone activated platelet rich plasma & hair transplant.
