Hi, yes, a whey protein powder post workout is a good idea to aid muscle repair and recovery. However, do ensure that your baseline diet is good too and that you're having wholesome, nutritious meals. Hope this helps.

Torn Meniscus - 3 Ways It Can Be Treated

Torn Meniscus - 3 Ways It Can Be Treated

Meniscus refers to the soft ligament in your knee joint, which cushions your bones and protects it from wear and tear. It is vital for the fulfilment of regular activities and the health of your bones. Thus, a damage to the meniscus can be extremely painful. Meniscuses are exposed to injuries and shocks in case of rigorous activities and this is a fairly common syndrome faced by athletes and sports persons. It can cause a substantial amount of hurt and generally impairs movement to a large extent. It potentially gets worse as the inflammation sets in and the swelling grows. The risk of a meniscus tear increases with age. The treatment for a torn meniscus depends upon the degree of tear. While minor tears repair on their own, for graver injuries, the following therapies may prove effective.

Symptoms of a torn meniscus
1. You might be able to experience a popping sensation in your knee joint
2. Stiffness and swelling
3. You will experience pain, especially while you are trying to twist your knee
4. You might not be able to straighten your knee completely

The treatment for a torn meniscus depends upon the degree of tear. While minor tears repair on their own, for graver injuries, the following therapies may prove effective:
1. Light exercises: For slightly serious meniscus tears, there are certain knee exercises which are recommended to abort any further damage as well as to repair the wound. Limiting the activities which might exert pressure on the knees, getting adequate rest, using ice packs and wearing neoprene sleeves always aid in recovery.
2. Anti-inflammatory medications: Often, meniscus tears are cured with the help of anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen. They not only reduce pain but also enable the mending of the injured tissue. However, one needs to be aware of a few side effects which often become natural repercussions of such drugs. Possibility of ulcers and bleeding get increased by leaps and bounds on the intake of such drugs.
3. Surgery: For all other forms of meniscus tears, if healing is not obtained through non-surgical methods, the only option available is that of surgery. Such a situation arises when the pain becomes unbearable and the meniscus tear does not respond favorably to superficial treatments. These surgeries are less complicated than replacement surgeries. They usually do not involve any life threatening hazard and cautious and efficiently conducted surgeries release all pains and handicaps.

I have phimosis and can't retract my foreskin normally. I don't want to get circumcised. I want to retain my foreskin. Is there any surgery that can widen and retain my foreskin.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. Take care.

I have a problem of night fall from 4 one time in every week. Please tell me what should I do to stop the night fall?

Homeopath, Pune
Hello Lybrate User, Nightfall is also known as a nocturnal emission, it is a spontaneous orgasm during sleep that is involuntary ejaculation for a male. Here are tips to get rid from nightfall - * Relax - make sure you get enough sleep and exercise. Pick up new hobbies to fill your free time with activities and feel relax. * Sleep on your back and wear loose clothes that may reduce the risk of accidental stimulation while you're sleep. * Avoid spicy foods and stimulants. * Avoid overtly sexual stimuli, such as, avoid pornography, sexual programming. * Try a warm bath with essential oils. * Curd - daily consumption of 1 bowl curd and 1 tbsp curd before going to bed, it helps to reduce nightfall occurrence and helps to peaceful sleep. * Raw gralic - 2- 3 cloves of garlic and cut into small pieces and take with water daily, before going to bed. * Eat foods rich in Vitamins C, E and B12. * Pomegranate fruit is considered very effective in treatment of nightfall.            For homeopathic medicine consult me on Lybrate privately.

Whenever I swallow my spit, I feel like something is stuck in my throat and it kind of pinches also. What might be the issue?

General Physician, Trivandrum
You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Hi sir Every day early morning I am eating garlic peaches. It is good for health?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
A natural antibiotic Garlic has been called a natural antibiotic (though it’s not a substitute for them, when they are necessary to fight serious infections). It fights against bacteria and viruses associated with colds and flu. It may also be helpful in alleviating candida yeast conditions. There are many home remedies involving garlic, for various ailments including toothaches, coughs, earache, warts, congestion, and skin infections. Detoxification Garlic triggers the liver to release toxins from the body, while at the same time protecting the liver from harm. Garlic is great for clearing out and maintaining healthy lungs and stomach. Cardiovascular health Garlic improves heart health in many ways. It thins the blood to diminish and protect against clots, allows iron to flow better through the body and opens up vessels. It protects the vessel walls as well. Studies have shown that it may help lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels. In addition, it protects against free radicals and acts as an anti-inflammatory for the heart, in addition to helping to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Reducing inflammation Chemical compounds in garlic are thought to assist in reducing inflammation associated with various forms of arthritis.

I am suffering from psoriasis last 25 years. Suggest me medicine for this disease.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Diploma in Dermatology
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Hello, s you are suffering from psoriasis. Psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. Psoriasis is a manageable disease, generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients. Red meat, alcohol n stress should be avoided in psoriasis. Eat a healthy diet, green vegetables, be stress free, exercise daily.

Local application of coconut oil or mustard oil or some soothing and calming lotion may provide relief in itching. Neem is one among the best blood purifier and detoxifier known to ayurveda. It enhances immune system and neem oil is an antiseptic in itself. Leaf extracts are used in antiseptics and can be effectively used in treating skin diseases. It destroys fungus and bacteria and is best for almost all kinds of skin diseases including redness of skin and itching.

There is no absolutely safe period. In a regular 28 days cycle day 1-10 and day 18-28 are relatively safe days but safe period method is very unreliable and has a high failure rate.
