Add the crushed almonds 5. Add a pinch of ginger powder 6. Add a pinch of cardamom powder 7. Add a pinch of saffron 8. Mix well 9. Drink this every morning Causes: • Anxiety • Incorrect diet • Unhealthy lifestyle This is very helpful.

I am 39 year old male. I snore very loud while sleeping by open mouth. What should I do? please advice.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Snoring occurs due to resistance to the airway that may be due to local factors like enalarged tonsil, adenoids, fatty neck, bulky tongue. Now a days many modalities are available to find out the underlying cause and treatment of snoring like laser, coblation etc. So consult an ent specialist for this. Do steam inhalation and use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 for 2 weeks. U will feel better.

The problem that you have described can be fungal infection.It requires both external and internal treatment. If you suspect you have the infection, see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. It is better to be sure if it is candida or something else .Try to keep your skin dry. Do not apply any creams, oils or moisturizers to relieve the itch as it will further aggravate the complaint.

Hi I masturbate daily will it cause any weakness and will I be able to be father one day.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Hi I masturbate daily will it cause any weakness and will I be able to be father one day.
No it will not cause any weakness or ability to have child. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

I am a 56 years old male, I get headaches quite often, mostly in the early morning hours, due to which I cannot sleep properly, it lasts for quite a while, taking paracetamol does not really help, I have done an MRI scan, but it is all clear, and does not show any problem or the cause of the headaches. It does lead to migraine sometimes. Taking a Paracetamol 500 mg and 65 mg Caffeine helps. I tried but cannot get this type of tablet in most pharmacies. Is there any solution for this pain please, your answers will be very much appreciated Thanks Dennis.

Homeopathic philosophy does not favour the use of temporary painkillers or short cuts for the treatment of migraine or for that matter any disease. Homeopathy tries to go deep down into the cause of the problem and completely eradicate the tendency of a patient to have these migraine headaches now and then. That is why it takes some time for the medicines to show results. They do not have a short term or temporary effect like the allopathic painkillers. On the contrary, homeopathic medicines have long term effects and work to completely cure the migraine problem. After a couple of months of homeopathic treatment for migraine headaches, patients are pleasantly surprised to experience a completely pain free or headache free life. This is the beauty of Homeopathy.  You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

These medicines are claimed to be effective in the advertisement. So its your choice to use it or not. You can experiment with then but take precautions (like doing some tests like Liver profile test and other basic tests to ensure nothing wrong happens). The other alternative is to have patience and adapt a healthy lifestyle. Exercise (including Yoga) the right diet and hydration, and proper rest can be the best way to bring back fitness and health without any side effects. Even though it takes efforts and strong will but the benefits are multifold and keeps you healthy with a strong immunity. You can also safely try Homeopathy which is a holistic medicine and stimulates the metabolism and necessary corrections naturally without any side effects.

I am 30 years old married woman .I have sinus for the last 15 yrs. 2 years back undergone surgery for removal of folip. Now for the last two months it has become severe. I am not able to breath through the nose. Pl advice whether there is any medication to reduce that or what can i do ?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Of all the possible holistic or alternative treatments available, Chronic Sinusitis stands the best chance of being cured by Homeopathy. This has been my personal first hand experience as a homeopathic doctor as well as the experience of hundreds of patients of sinusitis who got cured by Homeopathy. The Homeopathic treatment of sinusitis is far superior as it does not resort to any strong medicines or antibiotics. The homeopathic medicine for sinusitis is mild and has the additional benefit that it does not cause any side effect at all. In fact, it strengthens the immunity of the patient and helps in fighting other infections also. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Dear Lybrate user. Sperm Count. 40 million to 300 million is the normal range for the number of sperm per milliliter. Counts below 10 million are considered poor; counts of 20 million or more may be fine if motility and morphology are normal. Take care.

Hi, My father has open heart surgery 11 years back (in 2005). He is fine, recently a week back he noticed some blood from his nose. This has happened only once. Do I need to worry, which doctor to consult?

The reason could be very trivial like drying of nasal secretions or finger nail trauma or more serious if it is secondary to clotting mechanism derangement if he is taking clot busters for his heart problems. Check his pt and ptt.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In diabetes due to peripheral neuropathy, burning sensation, tingling and numbness can occur in hands and legs & feet. This happens even when diabetes is well controlled. In a well controlled diabetes fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% < 6.8. I am not sure about your levels as nothing is mentioned. Further alcohol also has detrimental effects on nerves. It is also necessary to know your liver function test results, which will give an idea about liver's condition. So please come back with all the details plus your current treatment with drugs and dosage. Thanks.
