Before starting out for a walk, relax and take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air which will move them into their most efficient position. After you exhale, maintain the chest in this position with shoulders down and slightly back throughout the walk.

Body Detoxification

Detoxification is a process in which a person makes lifestyle changes to clear body of toxins. These lifestyle changes involve abstaining from harmful things. Some changes are temporary, such as following a cleansing diet, others are permanent.

Toxins are substance that can be poisonous or cause negative health effects, it can be metals, chemicals, pollutants, artificial food ingredients, pesticides, and poisons.

The Body and Detoxification

  • The excretory system in the body plays the largest role in detoxification. The main organs involved in excretion are the skin, liver, lungs, large intestine, and kidneys.:
  • The liver filters and excretes waste, hormones, drugs, and other foreign substances.
  • The lungs help remove carbon dioxide.
  • The large intestine converts waste into stool that is expelled from the body through defecation.
  • The kidneys filter the blood and help remove waste from the body through urination.
  • The entire body relies on this system to live a healthy life.
  • Your body is detoxifying itself all the time, around the clock, 24x7

Ways To Detox Your Body:

Right Foods
Take green vegetables and fruits over fast food and other processed foods. Avoid pesticide contaminated foods

Exercise & Meditation

  • Exercise and meditation help maintain a healthy body. Exercising helps body to sweat, and this helps release toxins through your skin.
  • Meditation helps to keep your mind clear and reduces stress.

Diet

  • Few foods stuffs that aids in detoxification like garlic, lemon, broccoli sprouts, mung beans, and raw vegetables.
  • Raw diet – like uncooked fruits and vegetables along with raw nuts, seeds, and sprouts.
  • Juices – made from fresh fruits and vegetables.

Breathe Clean Air

  • Breathing clean air reduces your exposure to toxins especially over your home and work areas.
  • Proper ventilation at home and work placePlanting.Planting house plants which act as natural air purifier.

As u already had menses so u r not pregnant and u dont need any investigations. U did the right thing by using i-pill. If u r likely to have repeated intercourse, it is better to use oral contraceptive pill instead of i-pill. E.G. E.G. Triquilar or ovral-L to be started on D2 of menstrual cycle and continue for 21 days. Then repeat the same thing once she gets menses

5 Easy Ways To Give Yourself a Relaxing Massage

5 Easy Ways To Give Yourself a Relaxing Massage
5 Easy ways to give yourself a relaxing massage

Getting a relaxing massage can do wonders to your overall well-being and health. Whether you want to reduce stress or simply obtain respite from aches and pains, these DIY massage techniques can help you out.

1. Massage your feet with a tennis or rubber ball
To massage your feet after a hard day’s work, all you need is a small rubber ball or a tennis ball. Place the ball of your choosing under your foot and move it backwards and forwards using gentle pressure. Repeat as needed.

2. Reduce muscle stiffness with a neck massage
If you are one of those people who sit in front of a computer all day long, you can try this massage to help loosen up the muscles of your back and neck.
Begin by dropping your shoulders, making sure they are not in a hunched position. The next step is to slowly bring your chin close to your chest and stretch your neck as much as possible. Follow this step with a pressure point application on the point where your shoulders and neck meet by using only two fingertips. Release the position once you feel your muscle is relaxing.

Lastly, in a very slow and gentle manner, roll your shoulders forward and backward. Repeat as many a time as you deem necessary.

3. Opt for a head/scalp massage to rejuvenate yourself
This massage is perfect for your head or scalp and you can do it anytime, anywhere. To give yourself this relaxing massage, you need to use the heels of your palms. Place them near your temples and follow this up by giving a gentle push to the scalp in an upward manner. Hold the pose for a few seconds before releasing. Finally, repeat the motion across the entire scalp or head section.

4. Treat your headache with a face massage
When you feel like you may be coming down with a headache, this massage can help in providing you with instant relief. Using only the tips of your fingers, draw small circles along your cheekbones, hairline, eyebrows and jaws. Follow this up with a gentle rubbing of your earlobes and ears by only using your fingertips.

5. Give the muscles of your back a rest with a back massage
To relieve your lower back from the stiffness that usually arises from sitting too long, this easy to do massage is all you need. According to your preference, you can either place a tennis ball between your back and a straight hard surface (wall) or simply place it on the floor and lie on it. While putting pressure on the ball, move it around your lower back so as to release any kind of muscle stiffness you may be feeling. Do this only for a few minutes and do not overdo it as that could worsen the pain.

Whether it’s your head, knees, feet or shoulders, there’s always an easy and relaxing massage that you can give yourself to de-stress and relax.

Painful Intercourse - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Painful Intercourse - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Homeopathic medicines work with minute doses of natural elements. They work at the root level to get rid of problems that cause pain during intercourse. These include vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction and others. These medications have no harmful symptoms or side effects, but they have to be prescribed by a homeopath only. They can be given to women of all age groups. Homeopathic prescriptions are best in treating cases of agonizing sex and bleeding after intercourse from vaginal dryness.

Here are a few effective homeopathic treatments that can help get rid of pain during intercourse:

  1. Sepia and lycopodium: It is the top homeopathic medicine for vaginal dryness. Sepia and lycopodium are evaluated as the best cures. Sepia is suggested where vaginal dryness occurs along with itching. Pain from vaginal dryness during intercourse also calls for the use of sepia.
  2. Bellis perennis: This medicine helps cure the wounded sensation in the vagina, if intercourse is obstructed due to pain and spasms.
  3. Cactus grandiflora: This is used when the vagina shuts close during the act of intercourse. Intercourse might be simpler just before periods.
  4. Coffea: This may be used when, if the vulva and vagina are oversensitive and you feel heat as well as itchiness.
  5. Cuprum: This medicine is prescribed for cramping in the vagina and the legs, during intercourse.
  6. Ferrum: When your vagina feels dry and aches, this medicine may be prescribed.
  7. Gelsemium: This medicine is used to treat any tension preceding intercourse. These symptoms usually show an inclination towards vaginismus.
  8. Lycopodium: Dry, smoldering vaginal pain during and after intercourse may be treated with this medicine. The patient may have varicose veins in the vulva.
  9. Platina: It is consumed during solid sexual desire. It becomes hard to have sex as the vulva is to a great degree oversensitive. Intercourse is difficult and causes wounded sensation.
  10. Rhus tox: Soreness during and after intercourse, regularly joined by physical fretfulness may be treated with this medicine.
  11. Staphisagria: It is a good solution for pain after loss of virginity or in occurrences of assault or rape.
  12. Thuja: This is ideally taken when the vagina is oversensitive, making intercourse painful and troublesome. Pains include smoldering, soreness and a feeling of being wounded. It may be useful where there is a medical history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as well.
  13. Argentum nitricum and sepia: These are the best homeopathic medications for vaginal dryness causing bleeding after intercourse. There are numerous homeopathic solutions for vaginal dryness catering to bleeding during intercourse. The most well known among these are argentum nitricum and sepia. Argentum nitricum is the most reasonable among homeopathic pharmaceuticals for vaginal dryness in situations where sex is painful and bleeding takes after intercourse.

Note: All these medicines are indicative, which one should not take without consulting a homeopathic consultant.

Delaying or preponing the menses will never make you pregnant and even if you get pregnant like this after taking progesterone tablets, it can harm the fetus. Also these medicines do not change the ovulation date, when pregnancy occur, it only delay or prepone menses.

I would want to examine you physically once to come to an diagnosis. Based on orally reported symptoms we cannot assess the problem so it's important that you see a good lady sexologist and get an physical examination done as soon as you can and please relax everything can be treated. So do not take additional stress.
