From the past 5 days I am suffering from nose bleeding. What are the symptoms of that?

BHMS

The easiest way to stop a nosebleed is the time-honored pinch cure. Pinching the nose sends pressure to the bleeding point in the nasal septum, which helps stop the flow of blood immediately. 1. Sit up straight with your head tilted slightly forward. 2. Using your thumb and index finger, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bony bridge. 3. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, breathe through your mouth. 4. Release the pressure gently and sit quietly for 5 minutes. 5. Repeat as necessary until the bleeding stops. Note: do not lay flat, tilt your head back or put your head between your legs. Also, do not blow your nose. Also take arnica 30 - twice daily for next 3 days.

Acid reflux is a lifestyle disease. To cure it you have to modify your lifestyle otherwise you will get temporary relief when on medicine but basically it will not cure or even may worsen. You have to stop spicy fried sour junk food completely. You have to stop smoking, alcohol and tobacco chewing if you do. You can not take onion garlic mint clove cinnamon cardamom also. Avoid all food with spicy and sour gravy. Take small frequent meals instead of large heavy meals. Don't lie down for about 3 hours after meals. Stop h2o2 gargles. Consult gastroenterologist once if any investigation advised get it done.

I have problem with snoring in night, I did not found any solution for this. So how can I stop snoring in night?

Ask Free Question
Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.
