I am 28 years old female. I am getting much hair on my mustache, on above lips, underarms and on uterus. Is this is due to low proteins/ vitamins in my body. And also I had heard that due to thyroid also much hair growth will be there. Is it true?

Too much hair on a female's body is called hirsuitism and it is mainly due to hormonal imbalance in the body. Polycystic ovarian syndrom which leads to hormonal imbalance is quite common in females. I would advise you to follow a strict healthy diet and exercise daily for 40-45 minutes. Also, on a safer side please get your thyroid checked.

Your number 150 and 250 are high. It should be 100/200. It means you are not regulating your diet properly. Added to that you have BP too. You should be extra careful now. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

Don't feel ashamed. Testosterone requirement depends on actual deficiency status and your hormone level. Sometimes, no drugs are needed. All the best.

She is a heart patient. Please tell me healthy diet for her. She is of the age 70.
If you have one or more forms of heart disease now there are many things you can do, in addition to using medication that's likely been recommended for you, to improve your health. Either way, be sure to eat well (choosing food from a variety of groups, high in fiber and low in saturated fat andcholesterol) and get plenty of exercise. Exercise does not have to be strenuous—a regular habit of brisk walkingmost days of the week for 30 to 60 minutes, and ideally, once a day, is all you need to do to reduce your risk of heart problems.

BP should be under control throughout the day and night. We need to probably add another tablet in addition to existing drugs. See a local doctor.

Is it good to masturbate? I masturbate daily twice. how many times a week is good to masturbate?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Is it good to masturbate? I masturbate daily twice. how many times a week is good to masturbate?
Mastrubate 15 days once is good but daily one or 2 times its harmfull to the body. How much is too much masturbation (and sex for that matter)? that depends but it's suggested men keep their ejaculation frequency down to 2-3 times a week. However, sexual activity can be experienced more often if men learn how to orgasm without ejaculation. Doing so can actually store bioenergy into your system and make your penis firmer, your erections last longer, and your ejaculate volume bigger. Over masturbation participants experience problems with concentration and memory. This is a dangerous side effect of over masturbation and signals that the brain is being over drained of acetylcholine. Over masturbation drains motor neurons and neuromuscular endings of acetylcholine, which is eventually replaced. Over masturbation can lead to absent mindedness, memory loss, lack of concentration, and eye floaters. To fight these symptoms, the chemical levels in your body needs to be balanced. For treatment and any queries ask privately.

For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.
