Dear Lybrate User, *Drink warm water. *Avoid more spicy, maida related, dry, junk foods. *While suffering from gas and indigestion due to spicy or fatty food, having fennel seeds can help cure your problem. The oil contained in fennel seeds reduces nausea and controls flatulence. Dry, roast and grind fennel seeds to make a powder. Take half teaspoon of this powder twice a day along with water.

Benefits Of Black Sesame Seeds

Benefits of black sesame seeds
1. Anti-ageing properties: the chinese believe that the nutrients in black sesame seeds can help in postponing or reversing, certain age-related side effects. As per a study done by harvard university in 2010, black sesame seeds are rich in vitamin b and iron, and most people who have a vitamin b or iron deficiency show symptoms like hair turning gray, hearing loss and memory loss, all of which are the indicators of ageing.

2. Decreases the risk of cancer:
According to Dr. Ronald dephino, principal investigator, m. D. Anderson cancer centre, houston, the sesamin found in sesame seeds is found to protect the liver against the damage caused by free radicals in the body. Also, the seeds are rich in fiber, lignans (cell reinforcements) and phytosterol (phytochemicals), which can protect you against the development of colon cancer.

3. Relief for constipation and indigestion:
Dr. Amol ghosh from n. R. S. Hospial in kolkata, says, the black sesame seed can help in curing constipation due to the high fiber content and unsaturated fatty acid content. The oil found in the seed can lubricate your intestines, while the fiber in the seed helps in smooth bowel movements. These seeds also help in clearing up worms in your intestinal tract and improve the digestion process. grinding the seeds or soaking them overnight can help make the seeds more digestible.

4. Stabilizes your blood pressure: 
Black sesame seeds are rich in magnesium that helps prevent hypertension. Polyunsaturated fats and the compound sesamin present in sesame oil are known to keep blood pressure levels in check.

5. For healthier bones: 
According to Dr. Gargi sharma, nutritionist at aayna clinic in delhi, osteoporosis is a condition of fragile bones with an increased susceptibility to fracture. Bone mass tends to decrease after the age of 35, and bone loss occurs more rapidly in women after menopause. Black sesame seeds are abundant in calcium and zinc that your bones strong.

Hi. I m 28 years old male. From last sept I have kidney stones and take homoeopathic medicine name berberis made In germany. I have 5 stones now 3 stones are out throw urine. But now a day blood is in my urine why it will happen and also very pain in left side back.any advice.?

Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin d, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet irrespective of the size of the kidney stones, they can cause severe pain. Other symptoms include a desire to urinate frequently, painful urination, nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating. Pomegranate both the seeds and juice of pomegranates have astringent properties that can help in the treatment of kidney stones? try to eat one whole pomegranate or drink one glass of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice daily. You can mix pomegranate in a fruit salad also. Another option is to grind one tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into a fine paste. Eat this paste along with a cup of horse gram soup once daily. This remedy will help dissolve the stones. Being high in fiber, kidney beans can be effective in the treatment of any kind of kidney or bladder problem, including kidney stones? remove the beans from inside the pods, then put the beans in hot water. Simmer the water on low flame for hours until the beans become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Strain the liquid again. Drink it several times throughout the day to relieve kidney stone pain. This liquid should not be kept for more than 24 hours, as it will lose its therapeutic properties? you can also eat kidney beans in soup or salad. To conclude, you can try any of these natural remedies for treating kidney stones ayurvedic medicines are neeri syrup and calcury syrup and vrikkdoshhar vati for more queries inform me.

My friend did Oral sex with a guy, she met him on dating site. When she was blowing his penis, she realized that he was presuming a bit and also she realized that she had a mouth ulcer. Now she is scared of HIV. She is not sure if that guy has AIDS and she is afraid of transmission of virus through her mouth ulcer. It's depressing. Please help her.

Hello there. It's good that you have described of your freinds problem in detail. Ask your friend to have cool relaxed mind as hiv doesn't spread with oral fluids or saliva. The route of spread is only through semen if there was contact during the oral sex or if there was contact with blood. This is all possible only if the guy she met is been diagnosed with hiv. If you want to have a peace of mind then contact the person with whom intimacy was maintened and have him checked. And yes next time please keep in mind that protective measures go a long way I hope I clarified your doubts if not please buzz me goodluck and god bless

Keep a close observation on what you eat, avoid junk, avoid late night dinner, start doing surya namaskar, drink lots of water in a day to flush your fat through urine but make sure you are not drinking water with your meals, drink water after 90 minutes.

I have recently started getting pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds as well. The pain remains till first half of the day and subsides by night. The pain is just inside the anus opening and due to which its impossible at times to sit continuously and have to walk to ease out the pain. It feels like as if there is some wound which has come up inside and gets aggravated in morning after passing stools.

What could be the reason for hair loss?
You could find a million products out there stating “We could help you stop your hair loss”. Chances are, You tried a few too. Ever thought what type of hair loss you are trying to treat? Do you even know what’s the reason for your hair loss?

Question is, ‘How a disease can be treated without diagnosing it?’ First what you need to do is identify the reason for your hair loss; hair care products can give you a 1000 reasons to use their product, but they still cannot diagnose the reason for hair loss in each & every individual.

Pattern hair loss(baldness)
The most common cause of hair loss among men is hereditary hair thinning brought about by the effect of hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This type of hair loss affects women as well leading to thinning of hair over the front part of the head .

Nutritional deficiencies – Proper nutrition is very essential for hair growth, so deficiency of proteins, iron, biotin, minerals etc lead to hair loss, hair breakage as well as reduced hair growth.

Acute illnesses – Severe illnesses like infection(viral fever, jaundice, typhoid) blood loss, trauma etc can affect your hair growth cycle. The hair fall may not be evident soon and appear 2-3 months after the illness. This can lead to alarming rates of hair fall producing severe anxiety to the affected.This is called Acute Telogen effluvium. Usually self limiting, but at times the hair loss will persist and continue for several years(chronic Telogen Effluvium).

Medication – Some of the medicines when taken for certain period can bring about excess hair fall. Especially the ones used for treating hypertension, depression, cancer chemotherapy, retinoids etc. Once you complete your medication period or stop using these meds, hair loss gets reversible and your hairs start growing again.

Internal problems – Hair loss can be a reflection of diseases affecting the internal organs like thyroid, liver, kidney etc. Diabetes and various anemias can also lead to hair loss.

Severe mental stress – Acute mental stress following death of a close relative, divorce, financial loss etc can also affect hair growth cycle which usually starts with in 2-3 months of incident.
Scalp diseases- Hair fall can also be associated with diseases affecting the scalp. Fungal and bacterial infections, dandruff, alopecia areata, lichen planus etc. can produce either patchy or diffuse areas of hair loss.

The best way to deal with hair loss is seeking the help of a dermatologist who can diagnose the exact reason for your hair fall. If you keep on wasting money on oils, shampoos or other so called products, your loss will be irreversible, both financially and psychologically.
