I hve pimple from two ir three days. Probably its due to hot weather and humidity of kolkata, please suggest some remedy, is it advantageous to apply ice cubes?

Ayurveda, Ambala
These are the methods to treat fastly pimples: • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

Unable to Lose Weight - 8 Tips Just To Help You!

Unable to Lose Weight - 8 Tips Just To Help You!

Many of my clients when first consults with me, they ask this question' despite trying so many strategies, why I am not losing weight?  When I ask them about their efforts, they share:

  • I did the gm diet for a month
  • I took herbal life shake for three months
  • I went on fruits and liquid diet
  • I do gym every day!

Ok, wait! Any sensible approach? This is usually my reaction to that.

So did I do anything wrong? They often ask me suspiciously.

Of course, by following above methods you are hampering your metabolism and pushing yourself to many essential nutrient deficiencies. Every second day I get cases of low iron, vitamin B12, calcium, low muscle mass and a high percentage of fat.

Do we have any way to lose weight and not feel tired and dull whole day?

Yes, there is. By eating a healthy, balanced diet and eating a variety of food is the only way to get long lasting weight loss result. By eating right, you can improve your metabolism and nourish your body so that you don't fall for a metabolic disorder like diabetes, thyroid, PCOD, heart diseases etc. I have helped hundreds of clients every month to give them a long lasting healthy weight loss.

Few tips to get you started on your weight loss journey:

  1. Have filling breakfast which consists of cereal (complex carbohydrate), a protein source (egg/ beans/ milk and milk product) and vitamin and mineral source (fruit/ vegetables).
  2. Have in between snacking of fruits and nuts.
  3. Have plenty of seasonal fruits and vegetables.
  4. Have good fats e. G. Almonds/ walnuts/ flax seeds/ avocado/ pumpkin seeds/ coconut etc.
  5. Drink plenty of water and avoid empty calories (soft drinks).
  6. Avoid bakery products.
  7. Eat variety in terms of cereal, pulses, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
  8. Include any form of physical activity for 45 mins per day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

I am in a problem of teeth. When I eat cold drinks I feel pain on my teeth so what can I do.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (Sensodyne Tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser

I am 26 year old and have pcod syndrome and now in my recently abdomen scan its level is 6-8 cc and my doctor sugest me to stop dronis 30 medicine for 3 months to record menses cycle I want to know is pcod curable at this level and is it fine with 6-8 cc and for hiw much more I need to take this treatment as I take dronis for 1 year and now stopped this mnth please help me as my parents are looking for marriage.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
For pcod there have to be at least 12 small cysts in an ovary, size less than 5-7 mm each. If the number of cysts are lesser, then you strictly do not have pcod. Stopping dronis may allow normal hormonal changes and normal cycle to resume. Watch for 3 months. Look up the ideal weight as per your height and age and try to maintain that. If thyroid and prolactin levels are normal and if your mother, aunts or sisters have not had this problem, you should come out of it.

Sir my brother doing gym he take a gainer supplements to gain weight so sir the supplements effect her future life Sir supplements side effect human body The supplements that he would be take is (serious mass neulife company)

Ayurveda, Narnaul
Eggs contain a good amount of fat, calories, and protein which are popular ingredients for weight gain. Consuming egg whites everyday can give you strong muscles and essential protein and energy. For better results, eat more of the egg white than the yolk, as the former increases your cholesterol level.  Alternatively, you can also eat egg-white omelettes or scrambled egg whites daily in breakfast. Note – Do not eat raw eggs; they may cause serious health problems.

I am suffering from stomach pain and lower abdomen just below right chest and farting iz getting very irritable. I am suffering this gastric problem from last 1 and half years. Bloating starts as soon as I have my food. Please help me docs. Please I also have loose stools after my food. Help please.

General Physician, Pune
Since you are suffering from 1 year or more, the case needs proper handling 1. You have farting and pain in chest. Bloating is a typical sign of hyperacidity. 2. Are there long gaps in your food intake? Please eat regularly. When we feel hungry, stomach is ready to secrete acid. If we keep it empty, it will start eating itself. 3. Please do tests for H Pylori. There are blood tests, breath tests, etc. You need not go for endoscopy directly. 4. Infections in intestine, like amoebic colitis, worms, bacterial infections can also present as acidity. 5. Irritable bowel syndrome, a stress related. Please contact a physician and spend some time with him/her in detailed history. Please do the tests and complete the treatment.

Sir my weight is 89 kgs how to reduce the weight in an integrated manner please suggest food and exercise tips to reduce weight.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Nutrition Certification,Registered Dietitian
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
You can lose weight easily if you are patient and determined to shed those extra kilos. You just have to alter your daily routine, watch what you eat and be physically active. This requires you to be on your weight loss commitment for quiet long. For a start please follow: 1. Cut down the excess carbs. If you want to lose weight you should start by avoiding sugar and starch (like bread). A low carb diet reduces your hunger and makes it easier to eat less. And it might even increase your fat burning at rest. 2. Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals will not make you lose weight faster. That strategy backfires because your body thinks food is in short supply, so it slows your metabolism in order to conserve energy. Over time, the result is that when you do eat — even if you consume the same foods as always — your body will be slower to use the calories as fuel, thus creating a backlog of unwanted pounds. 3. Stay hydrated. You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again. That's because drinking 64 ounces of water daily is one of the easiest ways to speed up weight loss. Your body needs water in order to efficiently metabolize stored fat. When you shortchange your supply, you're likely to slow down that process, meaning it's more difficult for you to burn calories. An easy eight glasses a day (at least!) will keep your system running smoothly. 4. Start exercising. Strength training builds lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories — at work or at rest — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more lean muscle you have, the faster you'll slim down. How do you start strength training? Try some push-ups or a few squats or lunges. Use your free weights to perform simple biceps curls or triceps pulls right in your home or office. Do these exercises three to four times per week, and you'll soon see a rapid improvement in your physique. 5. Go for an evening walk. An evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. What that means for you: Those dinner calories have less of a chance to take up permanent residence on your hips. 6. Take adequate rest. You should also make an effort to get enough good sleep, preferably every night. Strive to wake up refreshed of your own accord, independently of the alarm clock. If you’re the kind of person who always gets brutally woken up by the alarm ringing, you might never be giving your body adequate rest. 7. Supplement vitamins and minerals. Nutrient-dense, good food is certainly the foundation of weight loss. But an adequate amount of vitamin D can be difficult to ingest via food. In the case of a lack of sun (such as during the darker months of autumn and winter), it’s wise to supplement for multiple health reasons – and perhaps even for your weight.

My daughter (now 20 years old) has stubborn fat which will not go by dieting or normal exercise. She is in college and has lot of work and cannot spend a lot of time for rigorous exercise. Are there any REALISTIC treatments for this to remove the initial stubborn fat and then later she can maintain by lifestyle changes.

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition

Dear Lybrate User... Your daughter can definitely be fitter with lesser weight. It needs some time and proper guidance. 1. There is no such thing as 'stubborn fat'. Body fat is just fat. 2. Extra fat is a deposit which has accumulated due to imbalance in food and activity. 3. In our households we keep force-feeding / over-feeding our children to make them look 'chubby' .....but one fine day when they grow up... we realise they are overweight and we look for instant solutions to quickly remove that fat. 4. You need to alter the way food is cooked and served at home. 5. Oils - Cut down all fried and oily food.. Per person per day oil limit is 4 teaspoons. This includes any type of oil/ghee total. 5A. Cut down all puris, parathas, pakodas, papads etc which consume too much oil. 6. Sugar - per person per day 4 teaspoons only. 7. These have to be strictly measured on a daily basis and then you will realise how much excess oil/sugar is being consumed. 8. Focus on creating fruit salads, veg salads, sprout salads. These should be available at all times. Increase consumption of all types of fruits. 9. Don't keep any mixture / namkeen / chocolates / biscuits / cakes in the house. 10. Eat simple meals, avoid ordering from outside / eating out 11. Just guide your daughter to follow these guidelines even at college because the college kids consume a lot of junk food, chips, colas, chocolates... which accumulates as fat in the body. 12. She has to find time for at least 30 minutes everyday for exercise / walk / yoga or gym. If a young person does not work out for at least 30 minutes, they would face health problems later. Such things must become lifelong habits. 13. It is good that you are trying to help out your daughter... For this the food habits and exercise habits of the entire household members have to change. 14. Nature has the best answers for health. 15. Keep striving. Never give up

Dentist, Ahmedabad
You have gum problem in between your teeth . This can be rectify by scaling and gum massages regularly and if gap is more than use proxa-bruse to clean that area to solve the problem, Now if blank space is due to damage of teeth than have to consult dentist to correct the problem

I am 34 years old male. My arms are very thin, which I don't like. If I take proper rich diet it mainly results in belly fat but my arms remain thin. Could you kindly advise.

Hi to increase weight you should improve your digestive system. By digesting your indigested food with the help of remedy and medicines will ultimately increase your appetite and digestive system. Take chitrakadi vati after meal. Take ashwagandha churna with water twice a day. Take banana milk shake. Drink lots of milk and eat lots of milk products. Like butter. Ghee.

Hello. I am a 33 year old male living in Denmark since 10 years. I am originally from India. Recently on my trip to India, I was sleeping on hard mattresses, as is the case usually with beds in India. And for some reason it has probably not gone very well with my back. In Denmark we sleep on very soft mattresses. And my back has usually been pretty good and have had no complaints around it. Even though I have knee problem due to my history in sports. But this time around, the pain has been very consistent. The problem is that when I sit on my bed, in a fairly nice posture, with back straight, and leaning back on a pillow or something, my middle back starts feeling sore and irritates me, and then I have to sit with out any support for a while to relieve the tension. Even when bending sometimes, I can feel the tightness in lower and middle back, can feel its sore. It's been a month and now I am back in Denmark since a week, but still don't see any changes. In general what do you think is the problem and could it be linked to the mattresses? On a side note, an MRI of my lower spine was normal, with a slight slight disc bulge, without any significant nerve compression, according to the radiologist. So I am assuming the structure and things are good, but maybe it's just a passing thing. But still need to do something so it does not get worse, and hopefully to get it back to normal sooner. Kindly suggest. Thank you

hi, You have a slight disc bulge, but you did not mention the exact area. Depending on your history given i can suggest you complete body rest in proper position whenever pain starts. Don't carry heavy objects. Use hip bandage during prolonged sitting and travelling. Make sure to get proper bowel evacuation. You can manage the discomfort and further increase of the condition through traditional ayurveda therapy along with some internal medication. I can suggest you accordingly if you revert back in private consultation.
