As per my symptoms, doctors diagnosed me with IBS. Earlier I was having frequent motion, after 1 year sometime I have to face constipation problem and then tight and bloody stool. One of my friend suggested me for endoscopy. Should I go for endoscopy? Or even without that is it curable? I have taken medicines from allopathy, homeopathy and ayurveda but didn't get any great relief.

I want to get rid from the phlegm in my chest & lungs. Some times I feel that I am unable to breath due to this. The problem is most at early morning hrs at 3-5 am. I also snore heavily. Even I feel that the diameter of my wind pipe is decreased. I can hear the sound of my breathing even in very noisy environment. Yes I smoke daily, but that is limited to 1 or 2 cigarettes a day. I usually avoid oily & fast food. Recently I have started pranayaam & I also take a long tablet everyday. What should I do to be cured at the earliest?

Dear lybrate-user You need to do as I say & you will start feeling better- 1) Practice Steam inhalation 1-2 times a day. 2) Wear socks & gloves as precautionary measures. 3) Avoid late night shifts & take adequate 8 hr sleep. 4)Luke Warm saline water (Halka garm namak-paani) gargles twice daily. 5) Herbal tea in evening (with Tulsi leaves) 7) Drink 3-4 litres of water/day. 6) For difficulty in breathing, you need to take bronchodilators which will help you in easy breathing & antiallergic medicines. You need to take private consultation for this as medical stores won't provide them without priscription. 8) we will also work on how you can quit your smoking. Be in touch ,we will see what need to be done. Taking complete antiallergic course would help you to get releif from this problem.

My brother want to reduce weight He is having Bp 100, 150 And no other medical problem only uric acid is 6.11 My question is can he follow a normal diet plan? Will it have adverse effect on his body He is planning to follow GM 7 day plan in which he will start with fruits, vegetable etc.

Hye. The GM diet is a crash diet which will affect your uric acid levels, blood pressure and whatever you will lose will be water and muscle, the fat weight will be as it is. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice,  half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Weigh yourself weekly and record your weight. Adjust your diet and physical activity according to the progress you’re making.

Yes, viral fever can lead to cough for 1 month also. This is called post viral cough. It will subside with normal cough syrups but in some cases you need nebulisation with bronchodilators and inhaled steroids.

Dear patient, I had studied about your history and problems you are facing which making you depress and stressful. Due to use of previous cheap powders the hormones level in your sister is misbalanced and it should be corrected at a right time before it gets worse. You do not need to consume arimidex and all these stuff. It is of no use and side effects too. You can consult me back for your complete treatment of hormonal misbalance completely and boosting your physical and sexual health too with proper guidance and special natural medicines.

Dear user. The cut you experienced while having sexual intercourse must have happened due to dryness of the vagina and lack of proper lubrication. This could happen also general dryness. Don't worry. Apply coconut oil next time. Take care.
