C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping…… Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Hi Doctor! I am 28 and recent report shows I don't have PCODs, irregular periods or no periods for long time have been a part of my life till now, but recent report shows I don't have PCODs and still I don't get periods. Is is dangerous - even worse than having PCODs and no periods? I am married since last year but we stay in different cities so my sex life is not that much. Is not having PCODs related to sex life, is this betterment because of this?

Its good if you don't have pcod, you need to be happy. It is very good everything will settle down once you settle in relationships with husband. Meanwhile for irregular periods just directly consult a sexologist and understand your body's sexual physiology. Avoid taking menses and pregnancy on head and stop worrying. Improve your sexual life and bonding with guidance from an expert. Relax and act as I said. Go for solutions.

I am suffering from neck pain & shoulder pain from last 5-4 day, can you suggest what to do, I am 39 year old male?
Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

What are the advantage and disadvantage of chewing basil (Tulsi) leaves before breakfast?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
What are the advantage and disadvantage of chewing basil (Tulsi) leaves before breakfast?
The health benefits of holy basil, also known as tulsi, include oral care, relief from respiratory disorders, as well as treatment of fever, asthma, lung disorders, heart diseases and stress. 1.Makes the blood thin: Eating more tulasi will make your blood thin. This will be one of the great problem. This cannot be taken with anti clotting medicine. The symptom is while getting injured the blood flows more and the skin gets bluish. 2. Hypoglycaemia: This is one kind of problem where the level of glucose gets reduce. Most of the people to reduce the glucose on their body eats glucose. If diabetes and hypoglycaemia patient along with medicine eats tulasi than the glucose level decreases more and this can be a problematic. The symptoms are dizziness, feels hungry, weakness etc. 3. Effects reproduction: The excess of tulasi will affect the reproduction on male. This has been tested on rabbit giving 2 gram tulasi each day where the spermatozoa number is seen to be decreased. 4. Effect on pregnant women: Women who is pregnant shouldn’t eat tulasi, this will affect her as well as her child. The cervix gets contract which brings the problem during delivery and later the menstruation problem will occur and other infection might too occurs. The symptoms are bleeding, back pain etc. 5. Drug interaction: Some of the medicine that we eat gets altered due to this tulasi. Medicine is eaten for treatment and if there is any blockade and the reaction is nil than that will be more problematic.

Well it's no possible to get pregnant so fast and in such a fashion, however it takes just one sperm to get a lady pregnant. So please do not experiment your semen. You must practice safe sex so that it does not impact you and the other person. All the best to you.

Is it lemon tea good for health or not? If good then please tell me about benefits.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Is it lemon tea good for health or not? If good then please tell me about benefits.
10 benefits of drinking lemon tea first thing every morning 1. Hydration - This is I feel the most important benefit – Our body is literally on a fast while we sleep and is in a mild state of dehydration when we wake, lemon water can re-hydrate your body within minutes of drinking it which is why it is so good first thing. Lemon tea – warm water and lemon juice helps to replace fluids that are continually lost by our body, being dehydrated causes rapid aging and deterioration of the body, we feel exhausted, stressed, cant think straight, constipated – the list goes on. We are 70-75% water, it is essential to keep those body fluids up. When we are properly hydrated we are full of energy and feel vibrant. 2. Digestive Aid - Lemon juice doesn’t actually flush the body as you may read, but it helps the liver and kidneys to do their cleaning job, it helps produce the acids we need for good digestion. The acids in lemons are of a similar composition to our saliva and the hydrochloric acid of digestive juices – the body’s natural digestive acids. Lemons are also high in minerals and vitamins which help shift toxins in the digestive tract. Lemons turn alkaline when digested by the body and so help to relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, acid reflux and bloating. The citric acid in lemons help to produce enzymes, which aids healthy digestion and stimulates the liver. The American Cancer Society says warm lemon water helps cancer sufferers to stimulate bowel movements. 3. Lemon is a Natural Diuretic - A natural diuretic, therefore helping the body to release toxins – helps detoxification and keeps the bloating away. 4. Clears Skin - With all that flushing and hydrating we are obviously going to improve the look of our skin and we all know vitamin C is fab for our skin right? Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein which aids in the growth of new cells and blood vessels to give skin its firmness and strength. Vitamin C also helps create scar tissue and ligaments, it helps our skin repair itself. The vitamin C contained in the lemon rejuvenates the skin from within our body and gives us a vibrant glow! 5. Immune Builder - One of the easiest, cheapest and most effective ways to boost the immune system – high in antioxidants and vitamin C, drinking lemon juice or lemon tea regularly helps to fight of disease and illness. Lemons are also high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function and control blood pressure. Lemons are anti -inflammatory – inflammation can cause many health problems. People with Asthma and other respiratory symptoms would all benefit hugely from drinking lemon tea/water. 6. Balances pH Levels - Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body bringing it back to a balanced state, when we are over acidic we are vulnerable to disease – no disease can survive in an alkaline body. Drinking lemon water regularly can help to remove high acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints – one of the primary causes of pain and inflammation. 7. Freshens Breath - Lemons can help clear bacteria in the mouth assisting with the health of our teeth as well as keeping our breath nice and fresh. The acid in the lemons can erode the enamel on the teeth though, so be sure to rinse with fresh after after your lemon drink. 8. Promotes Healing - If our immune system is strong we obviously heal more quickly and the vitamin C found in abundance in lemons, helps to heal wounds quickly and basically takes care of all the tissue in the body including bones and cartilages. Vitamin C also helps us recovery from stress and anxiety. 9. Lifts our Mood - Just the smell of a lemon can clear our mind and so lift our mood, back in my aromatherapy days, we were encouraged to use lemon essential oil and have it near us while studying to help us stay clear and focused as well as happy! 10. Aids in Weight Loss - Last but definitely not least, lemons help us hugely with keeping our blood more alkaline and people with healthy alkaline levels tend to lose weight more easily and faster than those who are high acid, the body is very sluggish and slow when in acid state and so it would be very difficult to lose weight, for us to lose weight we need our system to work well and eliminate properly, lemon is helpful in this way too. So get that lemon tea going and lose those extra pounds! Of course just lemon tea alone will not bring all these benefits, but an overall healthy diet, lots of water and lemon tea in the mornings will bring huge health benefits.

I'm suffering from ringworm on my both upper thigh .what should I do to deal with this.

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Mumbai
You may be suffering from ringworm or tinea cruris which is fungal infection of the inner thighs and buttocks area. It can be treated by taking four to six weeks of anti fungal treatment which includes tablets along with creams. Do not use soap over that area. Mistreatment with over the counter Steroid containing creams like fourderm, panderm, quadriderm, hh zole, candid b etc lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Please call me or contact me using online consult option with photos for detailed prescription. Do not delay treatment as it may spread further on your body and also to other people living in the household.
