Asthma is serious and should be discussed with your doctor. But there are also home remedies you can try to reduce the severity and frequency of your attacks, and to help manage your symptoms when they happen

An asthma attack can occur when an irritant?usually a common substance like smoke, cold or dry air, pollen, mold, or dust mites?meets a set of temperamental lungs. Hormonal fluctuations, stress, and anger can also trigger an attack. Sometimes there?s no apparent cause. Your difficulty in breathing occurs because the bronchi, the tubes that allow oxygen into your lungs, go into spasms. Accompanying them may be coughing and tightness in the chest. The spasms trigger the release of histamine and other chemicals that cause inflammation and the production of airway-clogging mucus.
For severe asthma attacks?the kind of tightness, wheezing, and shortness of breath that can be really frightening?most people do just what the doctor recommends. Often, that means quick action with an inhaler containing a drug such as albuterol. If that?s what you use, and it works, don?t give it up. And always have your doctor?s telephone number near at hand in case of severe attacks. But for non-emergencies, you?ll want to figure out ways to help yourself breathe easy.
Breathe easier right now
? When an asthma attack comes on, stay calm. Panic can make your symptoms worse. Help yourself along with this visualization trick: Close your eyes. As you inhale, see your lungs expand and fill with white light, and feel your breathing become easier. Repeat this exercise twice more, then open your eyes.
? In a pinch, have a strong cup of coffee or two 355-mL cans of caffeinated cola. Caffeine is chemically related to theophylline, a standard medication for asthma. It helps open airways.
Natural remedies for asthma
? Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have been using the herb ginkgo to treat asthma for centuries. If you want to try it, take 60 to 250 milligrams of standardized ginkgo extract once a day. One recent study suggests that this herb interferes with a protein in the blood that contributes to airway spasms.
? Magnesium may make you feel better. Much research suggests that magnesium relaxes the smooth muscles of the upper respiratory tract. The recommended dose is 600 milligrams a day.
Help asthma by fighting inflammation
? Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel, work much like a class of asthma drugs called leukotriene inhibitors. These drugs stop the actions of body compounds that cause inflammation in the airways. Take six 1,000-milligram capsules a day in divided doses.
? Evening primrose oil is rich in an essential fatty acid called GLA, which is converted by the body into anti-inflammatory substances. Take two 500-milligram capsules three times a day. Take them with meals to avoid stomach upset.
? Bioflavonoids, the compounds that give fruits and vegetables their Technicolor hues, have powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties. One of the best-known bioflavonoids, quercetin, inhibits the release of histamine. Take 500 milligrams of quercetin three times a day, 20 minutes before meals.
? Turmeric, that yellow cooking spice used to flavor Indian curry dishes, is a first-rate anti-inflammatory. The compounds it contains inhibit the release of COX-2 prostaglandins, hormone-like substances involved in inflammation. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of warm milk and drink this up to three times a day. Turmeric capsules and tinctures are also available.
Keep a record
? In a date book, make a note of everything you eat for a month. Also record your asthma symptoms. While food allergies are rarely associated with asthma, occasionally there is a connection. Check your diary against your symptoms to see if anything you?re eating increases the frequency or severity of your attacks.
? If you take asthma medication, get a peak-flow meter, available at drugstores.

For the past 14 days my stool is coming out black / reddish type. It has a red appearance. But it is not like the colour of blood. I believe it is not blood stool. But it is black and something reddish. Only the first part of the stool is coming out black. I mean the first hard part of the stool is black but not the entire stool. First 4 inches of the hard stool is black but later the entire stool is yellow the normal type. I had been suffering Irritable Bowel Syndrome since 3 years. I have to potty twice in the morning. Sometimes thrice. I drink 3 glass water in 8 am then go to potty. It takes 45 min. Then breakfast 9 am and within 2 min again I go to potty. I also suffers frequent urination 16 times a day since age 15. I drink 3-3.5 lit water daily. I am 26. My whole abdomen is paining since 100 days. In ultrasound a 4.9 mm right kidney stone found. I can not tolerate the pain. Since 100 days all day long I was sitting on a chair because of pain. I can not lean forward or bend, can not work, can not sit on the floor, can not walk a small distance because it increases my pain. If I lie on the bed then the pain decreases. I consulted 4 doctors but they all think I have anxiety nothing else. But my pain speak itself that I am in deep trouble. My future will be spoiled if every doctor take my pain for granted. They do so because all my reports BP, RBS, thyroid, x-ray, are ok. My urine has no infection. But a little mucus in my stool. It is of different in shape i.e. Hard, jelly and sometimes liquid. If I die, what do they care? It does not matter to them if I live or not.

Hi. It seems to b a problem of IBS. Any black stools are due to blood only. I think your IBS is accompanied by peptic ulcer disease also. You need few investigations, medications and precautions. - avoid stress and anxiety, sleep properly - eat food on proper time and avoid heavy meals at lunch and dinner - eat food with high fibre content - avoid alcohol, tobacco, smoking etc -avoid spicy and outside food you may require a endoscopy, colonoscopy and some blood tests. For medications and investigations you can consult online. Thanks.

I have vertigo since 2014. Since that year after that first attack, I had another attack in July but after 3 days it was gone. Last August 9 I had another vertigo attack and for 2-3 days I couldn't move. After that I felt better. I am able to move around but I feel not normal as before. Actually the vertigo didn't really leave me. I have moves that will just let me feel turning around. I also can't sleep lying down flat in bed. What should I do. I want to totally be cured and let this vertigo totally leave me.

Which Cooking Oil Should You Be Using?

MSc.PhD Nutrition & Diete, Jr. Research Fellowship for PhD, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition - Dept. of Post Graduate Studies
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Which Cooking Oil Should You Be Using?

While cooking, one ingredient you cannot be without is oil. This is an essential ingredient in all types of cooking and no matter how little you put, a significant amount will still get into your body. Thus, it is of prime importance that you choose your cooking oil carefully. There are options, which are healthier than others and it is advisable to lean more on these options compared to the normal ones available in the market.
Considerations before choosing healthy cooking oils

It is important to not get into the marketing hype of various brands, which claim to be healthy cooking oils. Basic ingredients, no matter how refined, will still dictate how healthy the oil is. Some facts to consider are:

  • You would want oils which are stable at high temperatures and don't oxidize easily. If oils oxidize easily, they form free radicals, which are harmful for your health.
  • Unhealthy oils, even at lower temperatures will form polyunsaturated fats and thus, look for oils which have less of it.

Healthy alternatives:
Here are some healthy alternatives to the commonly found vegetable oils which are high in polyunsaturated fats.

  1. Olive oil: One of the staples and heroes of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil has long been the favorite of healthy cooking champions. It is good for the heart as it lowers LDL and encourages the growth of good cholesterol or HDL. It is also very low in polyunsaturated fats. You should try to go for extra virgin olive oil, although other variations are still better than normal vegetable oils.
  2. Palm oil: Also low in polyunsaturated fats, palm oil is rich in vitamin E and many other nutrients which make it a very healthy alternative to the normal vegetable oils you would usually buy from the market.
  3. Coconut oil: This variety of oil tends to have the least amount of polyunsaturated fats and is being touted as the healthiest alternative to normal cooking oils. Coconut oil contains a lot of lauric acid which helps to improve cholesterol levels within the body and is also know to have antibacterial properties.
  4. Avocado oil: Another healthy alternative, it may be a little difficult to find in the shelves as it is still uncommon. Again, this oil is also very low in unsaturated fats and is thus, similar to olive oil. You can use this oil for cooking or serve it cold as garnishing for dishes as well.

Indian market offers variety in oils and one can choose from sesame, ricebran, sunflower, safflower, canola , coconut and pure ghee too. Changing or rotating oils is healthy as it gives the body different essential fatty acids which it needs; for example we need a healthy blend of mono -unsaturates (50%) polyunsaturates ((30%) and saturated fatty acids(20%). However, you should consult your physician as to, which oil will be best for you.
