What should I do to decrease my size of stomach?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
The word fat in itself is very alarming. Body fat or weight is the topic of concern for most people today. Due to the lack of physical activities these day s people tend to gain weight at a faster rate. Long working hours, which involves sitting in front of computers, have lead to the increase in belly size pot belly or beer belly are just few names with which it is known. Abdominal crunches lay down flat on the floor bend the knees with feet on the floor place your hands by the side of your ears take a deep breath crunch up lifting the head and chest a bit. The aim is to try and touch the knees with the forehead. But do not try to do it in the first attempt. Give your body some time? now move down gradually, exhaling the air. Descending movement must be slower than the crunch up movement. Repeat the steps 5 to 10 times some tips? squeeze a lemon in a cup of warm water. Drink this water as soon as you get up in the morning. Drink lots of water throughout the day, keep yourself well hydrated? drink green tea in the morning. It has antioxidants that help the body to burn fat and detoxify. Eliminate all juice (except natural pomegranate juice) and soft drinks from your diet. Drink only 1 cup of coffee a day? avoid junk food at all cost? start exercising. Do ? hour to 45 minutes of cardio, preferably walking on an incline every day. Do light weight training for upper body three times a week? snack on a small amount of almonds (5 at a time) throughout the day (4 times a day maximum). Any queries inform me.

Hello, take berberis vulgaris q, 15 drops with water thrice daily. Take cholesterinum 3x, 2 tabs twice daily. Home remedies:- 1. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar stops the liver from making cholesterol that is responsible for forming the most common type of gallstones. It also plays a key role in dissolving gallstones and alleviating pain. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Drink it whenever you have a gallstone attack. This will significantly ease the pain within 15 minutes. You can add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this regularly for weeks can dissolve gallstones and prevent pain. 2. Pears can also provide relief from gallstone pain and other symptoms. The compound pectin present in pears helps soften cholesterol-filled gallstones, which in turn get flushed out of your body easily. Mix half a glass of pear juice with half a glass of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of honey. Drink this juice three times a day for two weeks. Peel and de-seed some pears. Cut the pears in small pieces and cook them in water for about 20 minutes. Eat a bowl of the warm cooked pears twice daily for two weeks. All of the following are healthy foods for your gallbladder, as well as the rest of your body:- fresh fruits and vegetables whole grains (whole-wheat bread, brown rice, oats, bran cereal) lean meat, poultry, and fish low-fat dairy products.

I am 31 years old from Bangalore and suffering from pain and burning sensation after urination. There are no other symptoms or problems. It all started mildly on 25th Jun. Pain or burning sensation was sporadic and mostly I suffered at the early mornings. Then it used to be normal most of the times the whole day. I did all known home remedies like drinking more water, barley water, lot of butter milk etc… But the occasional pain or burning sensation was prolonging. So I consulted a general physician on 27th Jun and based on my explanation, he assumed it as UTI and prescribed me – Citralka syrup, Delbi-O tablet, Nicip-Plus tablet. I started consuming these for 2 days, but all of the sudden it got worsen and started to pain and burn almost continuously. It used to be severe, right after urinating and used to slightly reduce then. To mention, just before the pain got worsen, I travelled from Bangalore to Chennai in train. It was a horrible experience where I urinated more than 10 times that night and hardly slept for some 20 minutes. Then in Chennai, I consulted another doctor on 29th Jun (he is a general physician cum diabetologist). He diagnosed my urine sample (for Sugar, Albumin and Deposits) and the results are – Sugar and Albumin – Not detected Microscopic – Few Epithelial Cells are found. He informed me that the antibiotic prescribed by the previous doctor was not working and then prescribed me – Baloforce 100 mg, Urispas, Citralka, Amikacin 2 ml injection. With consumption of these for 3 days, the pain and burning sensation have gradually reduced. But still I have occasional pain/burning sensation, particularly during early mornings. In short, it all went back to my initial stage. Please note that the doctor asked me to continue the medicines for next 10 days. Lastly I reported to him on 1st Jul and still consuming the medicines. I am back to Bangalore now (4th Jul) and still I feel a bit uncomfortable but the pain and burning sensation are bearable. Please advise me should I consult an urologist at this point or shall continue the medicines and observe for improvement? Should I complete the full course? He asked me to take till 11th Jul – Is it needed? It is more than a week of time. Whether Urinary Tract Infection used to prolong so long? Please help me.

Hello, 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body. Thanks.

Chickengunya can be diagnosed clinically, its doctors prerogative to go for investigations. These are normal features of disease, it takes 7-10 days on its own to settle down and presents with joint pains, fever, throat infections or gastric disturbances, may be burning in urine. Just have lots of liquids like water, juices, coconut water or as advised by your doctor.

Dear lybrate-user, it will be worthwhile looking at your hormone and vit profile, these should include ft3, ft4, tsh, vit b12, 25oh vit d, estradiol, progesterone, total and free testo, dhea, cortisol. There is a specific protocol for blood draw which you will need to follow. Remember even if the reports are within normal biological range you may still need to optimze the same. If you need thyroid supplementation, the hairfall is more likely to respond to t3 supplementation rather than t4. I always prefer bioidentical hormones for hotmone supplementation.
