Masturbation bad effects 1.       Masturbation makes you weak, it drains protein and calcium content in the body 2.       Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3.       Masturbation is one of the main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4.       Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time. Controlling it is a very big menace. 5.       Masturbation creates drowsiness; you will be sleeping most of the time after ejaculation of your sperm. You will experience a damn tired. 6.       Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7.       Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one feeling bad on his own. 8.       Getting red hot while masturbating will give a bad name in that environment and it is an indecent activity. 9.       Masturbation cannot be done simply, it needs to see, touch, indulge or, at last to think of a sexual practice/ sex organ of the opposite sex. This is more harmful that the image in your memory that you see could not be erased easily. This will lead you to a noxious problem that you cannot see any girl/ lady/ women without a single thought i. E. Sex. 10.   Masturbation creates an urge to do indefinitely; it doesn’t see the place, people and culture. It makes you digging worse sexual problems if chance knocks the door. 11.   Masturbation leads you to illegal contacts because the urge increases day by day and finally will lead to the search of a source for sexual pleasure. 12.   Masturbation is the main reason for speedy sperm release during sexual intercourse. It will create dissatisfaction to you and to your wife. 13.   Over masturbation reduces your sperm count. Couples who desire to get pregnant should not masturbate. 14.   SThe seminal fluid that gets released on masturbation contains proteins that are needed for many metabolic activities and cell formations. Proteins are the building blocks of our body; ejaculation often will create you to be lean and distracts your metabolism of muscle building. 15.   Ethically masturbation is wrong; you think of X/Y and do sex of your own. This hinders your values and respect for others. You may be are good in all other regards but will end up in a great problem if not concerned to stop this habit. 16.   Masturbation wastes your time and makes you useless. 17.   The pleasure of masturbation never lasts for a long time. 18.   Masturbation creates more problems as you lose your memory and thought-provoking ability. 19.   Masturbation is not the end of your desire; you may be fooled by your own practice. It will never give you a solution or a satisfaction but seems that it gives. 20.   It is not needed in any way to your sexual life that it has to be practiced without fail. 21.   Guys who masturbate will lose interest in sex with their wife very soon. They can’t feel pleasurable for a long time. 22.   Masturbation induces homosexuals in schools, colleges and hostels. Many times the latter creates sexually transmitted diseases like VD, syphilis, AIDS etc. Prevention of masturbation 1. Never touch the intimate parts of your body except during normal toilet processes. Avoid being alone as much as possible. Find good company and stay in this good company. 2. If you are associated with other persons having this same problem, you must break off their friendship. 3. When you bathe, do not admire yourself in a mirror. 4. When in bed, if that is where you have your problem for the most part, dress yourself for the night so securely that you cannot easily touch your vital parts, and so that it would be difficult and time consuming for you to remove those clothes. 5. If the temptation seems overpowering while you are in bed, get out of bed and go into the kitchen and fix yourself a snack, even if it is in the middle of the night, and even if you are not hungry, and despite your fears of gaining weight. 6. Never read pornographic material. 7. Put wholesome thoughts into your mind at all times. Read good books. 8. Pray. But when you pray, don't pray about this problem, for that will tend to keep it in your mind more than ever. Pray for faith, pray for understanding of the Scriptures, pray for the Missionaries, the General Authorities, your friends, your families, but keep the problem out of your mind by not mentioning it ever -- not in conversation with others, not in your prayers. Keep it out of your mind! A Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure from this problem.

Hi, Doc. So I have chickenpox since like 13 days now. (the pox appeared the 3d day, I thought it was a normal fever for the first two days). I wonder how long will it more take to overcome it. The blisters have turned black a week or so ago, they are not scabbing off though. I am talking Paracetamol every 4 hours to help with the temperature. I can't even eat anything due to sore throat and that there are poxes inside the throat too. I guess what I want to know is, what can I do recover as fast as possible, and how much more time will it take? Thank you.

Sir I am 22 year old guy in night times I am unable to sleep well feeling breathless Ness so please give me suggestions.
Hello, breathless in night time is due to irregular food habits ang improper digestion. Follow these ayurvedic tips - a) eat light diet at night and that too as early as possible (around 7 pm) b) avoid liquid intake like milk and excess water before going to bed or after the meals at night time c) rule out any anayomical defect like deviated nasal septum and adenoids (if obstruction is acute d) use kankasava 2 tsp twice a day after meals with equal water. E) practice breathing techniches (pranayam).

Hi, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back and neck pains. If you have localized back & neck pain with no other symptoms like radiating upper limb pain or leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back and neck while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and neck region and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

DM U need to take medicine properly do routine daily test & weekly lab test also basic routine check up of other body parts maintain diet exercise but its not good to suppress psoriasis Homoeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a part total of body. Homoeopathy is very effective in managing all the symptoms of Diabeties and psoriasis furthermore plays a vital role in preventing relapse of the condition. Homoeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of physical, emotional, and genetic make up that individualizes a person. This constitutional approach framing mind and body works at the root-level. Moreover homoeopathy recognizes importance of root cause such as genetic and inherited factors as a root of any ailment of the body. The homoeopathy medicines prescribed on such strongly plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes which can manage to normal level of sugar in urine And blood. Diabetes cannot be cure completely but can effectively controlled with homeopathic medicines. People with diabetes can lead a healthy life if their blood sugar level is under control. The decrease in life span of a diabetic is restored to normal by maintaining good blood glucose control (90 – 120 mg/dl Fasting and with less than 180 mg/dl as PP (2 Hrs. After taking meals). Timely-administered homoeopathy medicines not only assist in maintaining levels of sugar, protein and fat metabolism, but also helps in preventing further progress and hence complications of the disease. The precipitating factors of diabetes like BP, Obesity ,nephropathy ,retinopathy, Diabetic suppresing skin disesase etc. Can be helped by homoeopathic medication. The complications of Diabetes also can be controled tremendously with homoeopathy. If homoeopathic treatment is choosen earlier far less number of case would go to the stage of Amputation etc. Even the cases of Non Healing Diabetic Ulcers have been cured with homoeopathy IMP please READ below Psoriasis usually grows worse with suppressing steroid drugs. So never use steroid drugs. The entire outburst may reflect inwards to involve every part of the body when suppressed. Usually, everyone knows diabetes can affect every part of the body except hair, teeth and nails. But psoriasis can affect these too. In the case of nail being affected, it may end up in loss of nails. If treatment is followed with patience, then psoriasis will remain only a skin disorder and make life with the disease better. The anxiety of the sufferer also makes his/her health deteriorate further. Anxiety, stress will make psoriasis worse. Be happy so you can live better without complications. In neglected or maltreatment cases, psoriasis can involve joints, liver, kidneys, bones, etc. Sometimes the raw skin surface, which peels off, attracts infection with scratching, which may lead to painful blisters. Other than disease complications, drug diseases or complications on using steroids also occur in many cases with ulcer, cirrhosis, kidney failures, neutropaenia, neoplasia, etc. Many patients try out drugs even without the doctor’s advice. Avoid suppress disease.

If a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you.

Please follow the below recommendation for your condition: diet, exercise, and behavioral modification should be included in all obesity management approaches for body mass index (bmi) of 25 kg/m 2 or higher. Other tools, such as pharmacotherapy for bmi of 27 kg/m 2 or higher with comorbidity or bmi over 30 kg/m2 and bariatric surgery for bmi of 35 kg/m2 with comorbidity or bmi over 40 kg/m 2, should be used as adjuncts to behavioral modification to reduce food intake and increase physical activity when this is possible. Do treadmill for at least 30-45 min daily. Many obese people are advised to follow a juice diet or the juice fast for a period of a week or so, so that they can shed the excess extra pounds faster. Health and nutrition experts advise people to consume fresh fruit or vegetable juice for obesity.
