Get basic tests for heart done-ecg, echo, stress tests and blood for sugar, lipids do not let others to affect you to the extent that you develop stress pain, chest pain etc. Develop self confidence and remain aloof and focused on your job at hand rather than being in a crowd and getting fears of a heart disease. Do get back here with reports. You are 19 years old teenager and hopefully the reports will be normal and take away the doubts but lots of good habits of healthy eating and exercise, studies, jobs later and a purposeful life etc you have to inculcate now to stay with you for life.

At 16 you should be taught at school about heart health. I am happy to teach you-share with as many people as you can. No burgers or street food as they are loaded with bad fats which block the blood vessels of heart/ brain causing heart attack/ stroke Some good fats are a must , depends on age but 1 spoon of pure ghee/ butter and lots more for growing up kids. high protein diet with simple proteins like milk , curd , eggs & non veg if a person eats some nuts about a katori of peanuts /almonds/ cashews/ wallnuts etc assorted or alone. nuts give good fats & proteins too. simple exercise like walking suits everyone no stress but only result oriented healthy stress which gets us good marks or fruitful results in the job well done no smoking or exposure to pollution. eat healthy, exercise moderately and remain positive.

My wife is 30 year old.Her cholesterol is high. total cholesterol - 249 ldl - 168 trig - 242 vldl - 50 and so on what treatment should be taken for that?

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Cholesterol is a fat or lubricant of your body and it is essential for life and why it is increased in you is the question as per homoeopathic approach here. And there is also a fear of getting heart attack in this very young age of yours Rahim. Homoeopathic approach here is different from routine. As you study from school days that every diseae from cold to cancer is caused by altered immunity and your alterd immunity is determined by your genetic make up which has to be studied on consultation and a correct homoeopathic remedy is reached which will cure your cholesterol and the fear of heart attack too which arises from excessive anxiety.

I am suffering from dry cough and my chest is also paining from last two days. What should I do for these?
Hello. Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Alpha-Coff and Glyzyrrhiza Glabra 1x - both thrice a day daily for 4 days. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap a warm stole or muffler around neck). -Avoid excessive or rough use of your voice/ shouting. -Gargle with warm water and salt 3 times a day and take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. Home Remedies for Cough: -Stir some into some hot tea for comforting cough relief. You can also eat a spoonful of honey before bed to help calm coughs. -Warm saltwater gargles help moisturize your throat, which can quiet coughs. -Drink peppermint tea to help relieve coughs. -Brew a eucalyptus tea by steeping a few fresh or dried eucalyptus leaves in hot water for 15 minutes. Drink this tea up to 3 times a day to help soothe a sore throat and calm coughs. -Make a hot ginger tea to help soothe a chronic cough. -Turmeric is a traditional cough remedy that many people have found effective for coughs. Try mixing half a teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of warm milk. You can also try turmeric powder and a teaspoon of honey for dry cough.
