How to reduce my fat quickly and get a healthy body as fast as possible and to prevent cholesterol?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
You are looking for too many things but you are not giving time to your body. You can't put time limits on your body. There are no short cuts. It took time to gain this weight so give a decent time for body to be able to lose it too. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

Dear Lybrate User, *Increase use of garlic, lemon, parsley, Indian gooseberry (amla), watermelon, grapefruit, skim milk and cottage cheese. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure; brisk walking, jogging, swimming and athletics are good options. Laughter is the best medicine, as it relieves stress and anxiety, which are the main causes of high blood pressure in today’s lifestyle.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Homeopathy Treatment For Cardiological Disorders

Homeopathy is a method of treatment, which is based on the fact that symptoms of a certain disease, if induced in small quantities, may help cure the same disease in a sick person. Cardiological disorders are complications of the heart; they can range from various disorders, such as heart attack or irregular heartbeats.

Homeopathic remedies are based on naturally occurring substances and are given to the patients in a diluted form. These remedies trigger the symptoms in small quantities and heal the body.

The various homeopathic treatments for cardiological disorders are:

  1. Latrodectus: This treatment is used to treat symptoms of precordial pain in the body.
  2. Aurum metallicum: Aurum metallicum is used in treating symptoms of weakness in the muscles of the heart.
  3. Aconitum:This treatment is used when a person is having a heart attack.
  4. Spigelia: Spigelia is used in the treatment of irregular heartbeats which may cause sharp pain in the chest.
  5. Cactus grandiflorus: This treatment is used in treating angina pectoris, which is characterized by symptoms of pain caused by decreased blood flow to the heart.
  6. Crataegus oxyacantha: This homeopathic treatment is used in treating coronary insufficiency in people. This disorder cause problems in heartbeat.
  7. Digitalis: This homeopathic treatment is used in treating cardiac muscle failure. This disorder causes palpitation, tightness in the heart muscles and a suffocating sensation.
  8. Kalmia latifolia: This treatment is effective in treating cardiac hypertrophy, which causes the heart muscle to thicken, resulting in size reduction of the ventricles. This treatment is very effective in treating cardiac hypertrophy that results after rheumatism.
  9. Glonoinum: This homeopathic treatment is prescribed to treat symptoms of plaque buildup in the artery, which cause hypertension.

I am having a minor chest pain on my right side since few days. I smoke. ANd just after smoking I get an instant cough for once or twice and sometimes I feel a bit weak and lazy. What can be done to overcome this problem sir or madam whomever addressed.

M.Ch. CVTS
Cardiologist, Ahmedabad
Occasional pain on right side not relayed to exertion is probably non cardiac origin. Smoking at this young age can reduce your life span considerably. You are exposing yourself to the risk of heart attack, lung cancer, copd and many more diseases. All though your current medical problem might not be serious at present smoking can land you in serious trouble 10-20 years down the line.

Avoid pollution and second hand smoke, breathe fresh oxygen through fresh green plants, inhale steam to clear nasal passages, take a spoon of honey with juice of fresh lemon in warm water on empty stomach every day morning on empty stomach -this will boost your immunity to fight disease and give moisture to dry nasal tact.

High cholesterol levels can be easily controlled by controlled diet. Avoid junk and fast foods (like, burger, pizza, samosa, chowmin, maggi, etc.), Oily and fatty foods (like, Poori, Kachouri, Maida, Chawal, Ghee, dalda, etc.) and also take less sugar. Along with avoiding it, do physical exercises and brisk walking atleast 20 min daily in morning and drink Lauki and karele ka juise. Do this regular for 2 months and then go for cholesterol checkup, you will feel major difference.

Cardiologist, Secunderabad
Dear sir, high blood pressure has longterm health consequences. What is important is that your blood pressure remains in control by whichever means. Its not necessary to take medicine if your blood pressure is controlled by diet, exercise, yoga etc. But if not you should continue taking medicine along with lifestyle measures.

The condition is called intermittent claudication due to obstruction of major vessel. First of all surgical intervention will be needed to relieve the block. Long term medication (blood thinning agent like warfarin) may be needed thereafter. I would be better able to help you out if you give me detail history with the reports. Regards.
