Hi doctor. around 6 years back on the occasion of holi I took 2 glasses of bhaang mixed with milk it was my first time afterwards I started feeling strange and suffered a lot that day. I dont know what happened but after that day my life totally changed, I started feeling hot inside the body and all my energy got lost after that incident I now sweat heavily even if walk a bit or do some casual work at home whereas everybody is ok around me but I sweat a lot and my lips are always dry before that day I was full of energy and stamina I used to be always busy doing something or the other but now I don't feel like doing anything please let me know if there is any test to be conducted to point out the cause. I consulted many doctors but they always give me multivitamins and nothing else.

Hello, thanks for the query. Bhang (known as cannabis in medical science terms) is known to cause panic attacks, states like psychosis, depression (which is quite matching your description here) in young people (18-24 years age) so now you need to stay away from any kind of addiction to get better. Also, to give you right medications to improve your health, please tell me following; how is your mood, sleep, appetite? are you able to enjoy outing with friends, movies etc? are you able to concentrate on your work/studies? kindly provide this information so that I can reach a definite conclusion & help you get relief. Good luck.

What is the best way to protect ourself from dengue? Please help me.
There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors.  -When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

Masturbation helps in producing an imaginary sex image in both male and female. 5. Masturbation reduces the rate of a male or female horny feelings. 6.

Masturbation preserves a virgin guy (based on what some people believes). 10. Masturbation cools an aroused body. 11.

Masturbation makes the penis or dick to get weak when been used in the body of a woman. 3. Masturbation makes a penis develop too many veins thereby making it unattractive. 4.

Masturbation makes a man moan, suffer and starve for real sex during the period of masturbating. 7. It reduces the period of ejaculation in men. 8. Masturbation weakens the womb in females thereby not enabling the womb to carry a child which leads to abortion (miscarriages most of the time). 9. It sometimes causes infertility in women. 10. It causes cancer in women. 11. Masturbation can make a woman lose her virginity. 12. It can cause sperm disability which leads to abnormal children (in fewer cases).

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. If you have localized neck pain with no other symptoms like radiating upper limb pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your neck while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of neck region and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Why Having 5 Small Meals a Day Is the Best Thing You Can Do for Your Health

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, B.Pharma
Dietitian/Nutritionist
Ask Free Question
Health is wealth! This age old adage holds true even today. The usual practice of 3 meals a day needs some tinkering and 5 small meals a day seems like a good way forward. Go to any dietician or any nutritionist and they will vouch for its benefits. So, let us now take a look at the many advantages that come up with this multiple meal plan:

Alter the food schedule and instil a sense of discipline:
It helps in altering your food schedule. When you spread your meals throughout the day, it allows you to try different dishes without over consuming any one dish. With more opportunities to eat healthy, you can develop proper diet charts and follow it properly across the entire day. Moreover, it teaches you discipline to keep a check on your diet.

Keeps a check on binge eating and overeating
Five meals a day plan can help you control your weight. Intake of small meals prevents binge eating. You don't need to consume in large quantity at once if there are more meals to look forward to throughout the duration of the day. Smaller meals, condition you in such a way that you do not indulge in overeating even if you are outside.

Something in every meal
Since you're opting for five meals a day, you will indulge in different types of food items throughout the day right from vegetables, fruits, cereals, eggs, milk-shakes and much more. This will not only keep your palette satisfied, but will also make sure that you get all the right amount of nutrients as nothing healthy will be left out.

Goes hand in hand with all the diet charts and plans
Eating healthy and in small portion ensures that you are on course for your diet plan. Five meals a day will give you a chance to screen your nourishment intake and manage it more viably. It also helps in keeping your appetite under check. It maintains a healthy balance between healthy eating and satiating your hunger.

Disregard the three-feast model; it has now become obsolete. Your busy schedule requests that you take a more dynamic approach to your nourishment. Five meals a day is just the right way to ensure that you have your share of proper nutrients every day.

Get rid of suntan: 6 effective home remedies

Sun tan is a common issue this time of the year. A severe sun tan not only robs the skin of its natural glow, but also makes it itchy, lifeless and unhealthy. Here are six simple remedies you can easily follow to remove your tan and get your glowing skin back:

1. Turmeric face pack
Turmeric is commonly known as the best home medication and it indeed has several beneficial effects. Mix a spoonful of turmeric in a bowl of milk and apply the mixture to your face. Keep for 15 minutes and remove.

2. Lemon juice
Cut a lemon and rub the sliced portion on the tanned areas of the body. Wash off after keeping for 5-10 minutes and follow this procedure on a daily basis.

3. Honey and papaya face pack
Honey helps keep the skin soft and supple whereas papaya contains enzymes that enable whitening of skin and effective exfoliation. Blend the mixture of papaya and honey and apply on your face for at least half an hour to experience effective tan removal.

4. Sandalwood paste
Sandalwood has the capability to soothe the skin and rejuvenate it to return its natural glow. Sandalwood paste should be applied right before bedtime on a daily basis to help reduce the effect of sun tan.

5. Yogurt
Yogurt is the best natural anti-tanning agent. Applying it on the tanned areas of your skin not only cools it off but also helps retain the natural complexion of the skin.

6. Aloe vera gel
Whether you extract it directly from the plant or use a product containing aloe vera, it greatly helps in moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated. Regular use of aloe vera gel can remove your tan in a short span of time.

for temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Also, deep breathing techniques help your body relax, which may ease pain. Tension and tightness seep from muscles as they receive a quiet message to relax. For further queries consult me privately.
