Daily Exercise lowers risk of Alzheimer's

It has been proven that older adults who burn calories in moderate physical activities like jogging swimming gardening and dancing are likely to have lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease

Exercise-associated calorie burn can increase the level of grey matter volume in key brain areas which are responsible for memory enabling the active adults to protect their brain from cognitive decline

Some peoples disturb in a fits problems why are coming this problem. May be genes problem and please tell me about this problem.

Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain sometimes signal abnormally causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior, or sometimes convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. Genes do play a role

Tips to Find and Avoid Your Migraine Triggers

DHMS (Diploma In Homeopathic Medicine & Surgery)
Homeopath, Dhanbad

With migraine, one of the best things you can do is learn your personal triggers that bring on the pain. Red wine, caffeine withdrawal, stress, and skipped meals are among the common culprits.

The first step is to track your migraine symptoms in a diary. Note what you were doing before and when your headache came on. What were you eating? how much sleep did you get the night before? did anything stressful or important happen that day? these are key clues.


 Steps to avoid your triggers

Watch what you eat and drink. If you get a headache, write down the foods and drinks you had before it started. If you see a pattern over time, stay away from that item.

Eat regularly. Don't skip meals.

Curb the caffeine. Too much, in any food or drink, can cause migraines. But cutting back suddenly may also cause them. So try to slowly ease off caffeine if it seems to be one of your headache triggers.

Be careful with exercise. Everyone needs regular physical activity. It's a key part of being healthy. But it can trigger headaches for some people. If you're one of them, you can still work out. Ask your doctor what would help.

Get regular shut-eye. If your sleep habits get thrown off, or if you're very tired, that can make a migraine more likely.

Downsize your stress. There are many ways to do it. You could exercise, meditate, pray, spend time with people you love, and do things you enjoy. If you can change some of the things that make you tense, set up a plan for that. Counseling and stress management classes are great to try, too. You can also look into biofeedback, where you learn how to influence certain things (like your heart rate and breathing) to calm down stress.

Keep up your energy. Eat on a regular schedule, and don't let yourself get dehydrated.

What to look for in foods

These things are migraine triggers for some people:

Foods that have tyramine in them, such as aged cheeses (like blue cheese or parmesan), soy, smoked fish, and chianti wine

Alcohol, especially red wine

  • Caffeine, which is in coffee, chocolate, tea, colas, and other sodas
  • Foods made with nitrates, such as pepperoni, hot dogs, and lunchmeats
  • Bread and other baked goods
  • Dried fruits
  • Potato chips
  • Pizza, peanuts, and chicken livers

You need to immediately take her to the hospital. This seems more probable that it may be of neurological origin. Get immediate medical care.

I'm 18 years old female my name is simian soni nd I have a problem of numbness, left side of my body is totally numb before I wake up in the morning I want to know that which type of symptoms or problem is that?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. See, if you have numbness in one half of the body, it is important to clinically examine you and focus has to be on cervical spine and brain region. Since this is a slightly sensitive issue, I will advise you to get in touch of a neurophysician and get a detailed evaluation done for yourself. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
