Follow a Healthy Diet Always - For a Healthy Life

A healthy diet is one which will improve not just your physical health, but your mental health as well. It is essentially concerned with healthy nutrients and essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. A healthy diet can be obtained by consuming the correct proportion of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods.

The following section focuses upon how to have healthy and controlled diet in and out of home for yourself and your family!
1. Tips for your family

  • Have the food as slowly as possible.
  • Have small quantities of food at one time.

2. At home

  • Eat on small plates to control having extra quantities of food.
  • While doing the monthly shopping of groceries, buy the food in small containers to make yourself aware of how much you are consuming.
  • Try to have meat, poultry and seafood with herbs and spices instead of sauces or gravies.

3. Outside home

  • While having food at restaurant, have lighter version of the food. Foods rich in gravies and spices can adversely affect your health.
  • Experience mindfully the experience of tasting the delicious food. This is good both for your physical as well as mental health.
  • Avoid having desserts immediately after food if possible.
  • Try to have healthier foods like fresh fruits, sorbets, whole grains and other lighter versions of your choice of foods. Carefully notice the amount of food you are consuming no matter whatever you eat!
  • Try to start your meal with broth-based soup or green salad. Order a healthier version of the food first and foremost in order to avoid being influenced by the choices of others who are having the meal with you.

4. Tips solely focused on and for your family

  • Be a role model for your child by showing how to have smaller and required portions of the food, especially those with high calories.
  • Teach them by offering healthy foods and letting them to choose the amount they want to eat.
  • Encourage them to have plain water when thirsty. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

If you dint have a sexual contact and you are sure that you are not pregnant then you should wait rather than panicking. Your peridos would come eventually. There is no reason to take any pill because all of the pills have their side effects.

My girlfriend experienced some yellow fluid from her vagina in afternoon and then she saw some blood around 2 drops from vagina in the evening. We had sex a day prior but I had condom on. It was the 1st time we had sex and I did not insert in her completely.

It may be probably because of some injury or infection, that is very common after 1st sex. Ask her to observe and if it persists, take her to doctor for check up.

There is a possibility you may be suffering from a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome. Please do a few blood tests- testosterone, fsh, lh, prolactin, tft, cbc and a pelvic usg to find out. Please read my health post on pcos. You might find it useful.

Hi My wife period is not properly lest two year .she is period come only one day .small Quantity.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
Hi
My wife period is not properly lest two year .she is period come only one day .small Quantity.
As the periods come on proper time but the amount of menstrual flow is very low and do not last for 2-3 days. It means that your hormones that control the the periods (menstruation) have normal cycle but the amount of hormones are less than normal that's why the flow is scanty. *for normal & adequate menstrual flow get up early in the morning and take a fast walk for atleast 15 -20 minutes. If you can run, then run atleast for 3-5 minutes. * practice bhujangasana (cobra postion) & pawanmuktasana everyday only under the guidance of yoga expert. * check out your thyroid profile & in case of abnormal reports get the proper treatment of it. * monitor your weight & if you are overweight then do more physical activities & change lifestyle to reduce the weight so that the peroids get normal. * eat more green leafy vegetables & avoid fast foods having high refined starch & fat. * you can take dashmoolarisht for your scanty periods only under the supervision of ayurvedic doctor. It can make your hormones level normal and make your periods regular.

When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?

When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?
No, Day 1 to day 7 and day 21 to rest of the cycle are known to be “safe days” or your “safe period”. The method is perfect only for women whose menstrual cycles are regular, i.e. 25 to 32 days cycles. This method is not completely reliable.

Its been 4 years since your last pregnancy which unfortunately had ended in a miscarriage. The medicines given to you must have resulted in ovulation, and the doctors must have adviced you to have sexual relations in the ovulatory period. But if this has not resulted in a pregnancy over 6 cycles, it means there is a need to evaluate your fallopian tube patency. Patency of the fallopian tubes is done by many methods: 1. Hsg - hysterosalpingography, which is an x ray taken when a dye is injected in your uterus 2. Sonosalpingography, where saline introduced in uterine cavity is seen on sonography to assess fallopian tubal patency 3. Hysterolaparoscopy. Here hysteroscopy will evaluate uterus and its lining, and laparoscopy will be used to assess the peritoneum, ovaries, fallopian tubal patency etc tubal patency will need to be established before taking up iui. So it is prudent to go for any of the tests mentioned above for tubal patency. If you want to go for ivf, tubal status need not be checked because in ivf we bypass the function of the tube i. E intratubal fertilisation (as this is made to happen -" invitro")

You should get regular menses on your due date. Or else you do urine pregnancy test and confirm it after 8 days again and ther=n only be sure of not being pregnant.

She can go in for an abortion if she wants to for that she should consult a gynaecologist and get it done properly rather than trying with medication etc.

The combination of discontinued intercourse and safe periods are probably used frequently. If the couple only has intercourse at those times when there is no egg, the woman cannot become pregnant. Ovulation normally happens 14 days before the next menstruation begins.

If you are pregnant, and you have checked your urine report about pregnancy from a reputed lab, then such occurence of bleeding is a sign of abortion. If you have just" felt" to be pregnant, or have done just a" home kit urine pregnancy test" then better go to a gynecologist and get examined. The gynec will try to asess 1) whether this is a" menstrual bleeding" which came after taking medicines for menses, and a false pregnancy test 2) or it is an abortion. You may be asked to go for a sonography to confirm presence of pregnancy and any retained products of pregnancy (as in incomplete abortion) blackish bleeding shows it could be a missed abortion which is trying to evacuate. Only a snography can help assess the status of the pregnancy or the absence of it.
