I am 62 year old male. My height is 5ft 9 inches and weight is 104 kgs. I know I am obese. I am a vegetarian. Can you please suggest me a proper dietary regimen to reduce my weight, which has resulted in meniscus of my right knee.

You need to plan your meals well. Eat smaller meals at frequent intervals. Have an early dinner if possible. Avoid outside, junk foods. Exercise whenever you get the opportunity or at least 3 times a week. Exercise can be anything that interests you. Maybe swimming weight training etc. Whatever is allowed. This will ensure at least initial weight loss. Lastly. Be commited. Any thing that you do and then leave is not the right thing. Diet is something you don' t go on or off. It' s what you take for life to nourish your body. So stick to a sensible eating plan and exercise routine that you can maintain. Not some diet that is in fashion. Get commited for life not for a month or a week.

Hi Is there any remedy or exercise to gain only facial mass not body mass. My younger sister wants to gain mass in face only. Her body is already overweight but facial mass is a concern. Please advise.

Hi lybrate-user, Whatever we consume ,is absorbed in blood and utilize by our whole body thus we will see difference in facial mass only after gaining 3-4 kg body weight. To gain only facial mass, regular facial massage (of 20 minute, just prior going to bed) with freshly cut Aloe vera gel (according to skin type ,you can add drops of lemon juice or badam oil) will help. As it is very rich in antioxidant and carries very good hydrating capacity. It will leave your skin soft, chubby with even tone. You will see the results in a week only.

What is Dermabrasion?

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
What is Dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.

  • Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles. It's also sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses. Dermaplaning is also commonly used to treat deep acne scars.
  • Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. They can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar removal/revision or chemical peel.

Think Twice Before You Drink Water From A Plastic Bottle - It Can Harm You Much!

Think Twice Before You Drink Water From A Plastic Bottle - It Can Harm You Much!

We store water in all sorts of plastic bottles, jugs or containers. It can be low grade or high grade, but plastic is plastic! This is a very harmful daily practice as plastic containers carry lot of chemicals and bacteria. 

Let's see the harmful effects of drinking water in plastic bottles:

1. Harmful Substances: Apart from harmful chemicals in plastic, water when get stored in plastic bottles also produces harmful substances like fluoride, arsenic and aluminium which can be poison for human body. So, drinking water from plastic bottles would mean drinking slow poison that will slowly and steadily deteriorate your health.

2. Dioxin Production: Plastic does melt in hot environment. And we, often store water in plastic bottles while driving and so many times leave it in the car where it is in the direct exposure of sun. Such heating releases a toxin called Dioxin which when consumed can accelerate breast cancer.

3. BPA Generation: Biphenyl A is an estrogen-mimicking chemical which can lead to lot of health problems like diabetes, obesity, fertility problems, behavioural problems and early puberty in girls. It's better not to store and drink water from a plastic bottle.

4. Liver Cancer and Reduced Sperm Count: Because of presence of a chemical called phthalates in plastic, drinking water from plastic bottles can also lead to liver cancer and reduction in sperm count.

5. Vitamin-Based Bottled Water: Nowadays, we get water mostly in plastic bottles and to increase its health content, manufacturers make it vitamin-enriched to attract buyers. But this is even more harmful as it carries health-harming additives like food dyes and high fructose corn syrup.

6. Impact on immune system: Our immune system is immensely affected when we drink water in plastic bottles. The chemicals from plastic bottles are ingested and tend to  disturb our body's immune system.

I hope the above reasons are enough for you to think carefully before you drink water from a plastic bottle the next time. If you need more convincing or would like to understand the effects better, feel free to ask me your query.

Also, if you found this helpful, please Share this with people you love and care for.

Chirata (Swertia Chirata) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - चिरायता के फायदे और नुकसान

संस्कृत में किराततिक्त या भूनिम्ब के नाम से उल्लिखित चिरायता का वैज्ञानिक नाम स्वीर्टिया चिरेटा है. यह पूरे भारत में पाया जाता है लेकिन इसके बारे में सबसे पहले यूरोप में 1839 में पता चला था. स्वाद में बेहद कड़वा लगाने वाले चिरायता का औषधीय उपयोग तवचा की समस्याओं, बुखार, सूजन आदि में किया जाता है. 2-3 फूट की ऊंचाई और चौड़ी पत्तियों वाली चिरायता का फल सफ़ेद रंग का होता है. चिरायता में सूखापन, गर्म, कड़वापन और तीखापन का गुण मौजूद होने के कारण इसका उपयोग कफ, पित्त और वात में संतुलनल बनाने के लिए भी किया जाता है. आइए चिरायता से होने वाले फायदे और नुकसान पर विस्तार से नजर डालें.

1. वजन कम करने में
वजन कम करना आज एक प्रमुख समस्या बन गया है. कई तरह की दवाएं आज बाजार में उपलब्ध हैं. लेकिन यदि अप चाहें तो चिरायता के प्रयोग से अपना वजन आसानी से कम कर सकते हैं. चिरायता में मौजूद मेथेनॉल आपका उपापचय बढ़ाकर आपका वजन कम करता है.
2. प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र की मजबूती में
जाहिर है किसी भी रोग को ठीक करने या उसे न होने के लिए हमारे प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र का भलीभांति काम करना जरुरी है. चिरायता आपके शरीर के प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र को मजबूती देने का काम करता है. इसके अलावा ये हमारे शरीर से तमाम विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने का काम भी करता है.
3. रक्तशोधक के रूप में
चिरायता स्वाद में कड़वा होता है. इसलिए ये भी करेला या नीम जो कि स्वाद में कड़वा होता है, की तरह ही एक रक्त शोधक के रूप में काम करता है. इसके साथ ही ये एनीमिया से भी आपको बचाता है.
4. लीवर की समस्याओं में
चिरायता हमें लीवर की विभिन्न समस्याओं से लड़ने में भी मदद करती है. फैटी लीवर, सिरोसिस और कई अन्य लीवर से संबंधित बीमारियों को चिरायता लीवर की कोशिकाओं को रिचार्ज करके दूर करता है. चिरायता को एक अच्छा लीवर डिटॉक्सीफायर माना जाता है और ये लीवर की कोशिकाओं के काम-काज को उत्तेजित करती है.
5. कब्ज में
कब्ज पेट से जुड़ी हुई बीमारी है. चिरायता इसके इलाज के लिए एक बहुत अच्छा विकल्प है. इसके लिए चिरायता के पौधे से बना काढ़ा तब तक पीना चाहिए जब तक की कब्ज ठीक न हो जाए.
6. त्वचा रोगों में
चिरायता का अर्क त्वचा से संबंधित कई रोगों से आपकी रक्षा करता है. त्वचा पर चकते निकलना या सूजन में भी चिरायता का पेस्ट बनाकर लेप लगाने से ये आराम पहुंचाता है. इसके अलावा ये घावों और पिम्पल्स को भी ठीक करता है.
7. सोरायसीस में
सोरायसिस के उपचार में भी चिरायता की सक्रीय भूमिका होती है. इसके लिए 4-4 ग्राम कुटकी और चिरायता एक कांच के बर्तन में 125 ग्राम पानी डालकर रख दें फिर अगली सुबह उस पानी को निथार कर पिएं और 3-4 घंटे तक कुछ न खाएं. लगातार दो सप्ताह ऐसा करने से आपको सोरायसिस में राहत मिलती है.
8. शुगर को नियंत्रित करने में
रक्त शर्करा को नियंत्रित करने की चिरायता के क्षमता का उपयोग हम शुगर के उपचार में कर सकते हैं. इसका कड़वा स्वाद रक्त शर्करा के कई दोषों को दूर करने में हमारी मदद करता है. चिरायता अग्नाशयी कोशिकाओं में इन्सुलिन के उत्पादन को प्रोत्साहित करके रक्त शर्करा को कम करता है.
9. गठिया में
गठिया एक ऐसी बिमारी है जिसमें जोड़ों में दर्द और कभी-कभी सूजन भी हो जाती है. चिरायता में सूजन को कम करने की क्षमता होती है जिसके कारण ये गठिया से भी हमें बचाता है. इसके अलावा इसमें दर्द, सूजन और लालिमा के उपचार में भी इसका प्रयोग किया जा सकता है.
10. आंत के लिए
जाहिर है आंत हमारे शरीर के प्रमुख अंगों में से है. इसमें आई खारबी के कारण कई तरह के विकार हो सकते हैं. आंत की कई बीमारियाँ तो इसमें होने वाले कीड़ों से भी होती है. चिरायता में पाया जाने वाला एंथेल्मिनेटिक गुण हमारे आंत में मौजूद कीड़ों को ख़त्म करता है.
11. बुखार में
चिरायता का लाभ हमें बुखार जैसी कॉमन बीमारियों में भी नजर आता है. खासकरके मलेरिया बुहार में इसका बहुत लाभ मिलता है. बुजुर्गों के लिए तो चिरायता एक वरदान जैसा है क्योंकि इससे आप बहुत प्रभावशाली लेकिन कड़वी टॉनिक के रूप में इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं.
12. ब्लोटिंग में
चिरायता के कई उपयोगी गुणों में से एक ये भी है कि ये हमारे पेट में अम्ल उत्पादन को रोकती है. इसके अलावा ये आँतों की सुजन ठीक करके पेट को मजबूती भी देती है. इसकी सहायता से आप दस्त, गैस, ब्लोटिंग आदि समस्याओं से निपट सकते हैं.
13. कैंसर में
कैंसर जैसी बेहद गंभीर बीमारियों से भी चिरायता हमें लड़ने में मदद करता है. जाहिर है कैंसर एक लगभग लाइलाज बिमारी के रूप में आज हमारे बीच मौजूद है. चिरायता का लाभ हमें लीवर कैंसर में मिल सकता है.

चिरायता के नुकसान

  • गर्भवती महिलाएं और स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाएं इसका इस्तेमाल चिकत्सकीय परामर्श के बाद ही करें.
  • इसकी कड़वाहट से कुछ लोगों को उल्टी भी होने की संभावना रहती है.
  • मधुमेह के मरीज इसके इस्तेमाल में सावधानी बरतें

Nerve and Brachial Plexus Injury

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi

Hello, everyone. I am Dr Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant cosmetic surgeon at Sir Gangaram Hospital, New Delhi.

Today I am going to discuss the nerve and brachial plexus injury.

What is nerve Injury?

In our body, from the brain to all other parts there is a network of nerves which sends the signal and tell us what to do. So if there is any injury in the network of filaments called nerves, then it is called as nerve injury.

What is Brachial Plexus?

A brachial plexus is a group of nerves which helps our hands to function. It starts from the spinal cord through the shoulder to the arm and to the hand. If there is any particular part which damages the neck that is called as Brachial plexus injury.

How long should I wait before being evaluated by my physician after the injury?

Whenever this nerve injury happens, these are the closed injuries. You will not see anything on the surface but you may have paralysed or weakness of a particular part. So as soon as the weakness, there is some numbness or there is paralysis of any part of the body. You should immediately contact your plastic surgeon.

Can a Brachial plexus injury be treated?

If you would have asked this question 20 years ago, then I would have said NO. But now, it is possible to treat them and with very good results.

What will happen if I do not take any treatment?

See what happens is, all the muscles in the body are innervated. If there is any injury in the nerves then it will cause weakness and ultimately paralysis of these muscles. Now, these muscles become paralyse then all these joints become stiff. S it is like a machinery if the current is not going then ultimately you will end up with that particular part of body useless.

How long does it take to after the nerve surgery for the function to return?

This is a very good question. Most patients do not realize. Basically, it is a scientific fact that whenever we have an injury to a nerve. Let us say suppose there is an injury to this level, then the part which is distilled to this becomes degenerated. When we repair, when we do the surgery, it gradually moves. It moves with the speed of 1mm per day after a latent period of 1 month. So approximately 2.5 cm (1 inch) per month. So it takes few months to function. Immediately after the surgery, you cannot expect the movement of the hand. It takes some time and it is scientifically calculated that how it comes.

 

If you have any queries related to nerve issues, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Hello Doctor, My name is Sachin, I am 40 years old, I want to know how I can be fit, what I should do in my daily routine time on a daily basis.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye, Thanks for the query. To stay fit and healthy you need to eat as per what your body needs. Try to avoid long gaps in between meals. Do not fast for long hours. This will help avoid binging in the next meal. If you want to adopt a healthy diet includes a variety of foods from the major food groups: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein including beans and other legumes, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats. Include foods you can find in your local grocery store  — rather than specialty non local foods. Local and seasonal foods always give us the right nutrients. Do consider your health risks if you have any when choosing foods. Stay away from calorie-laden, fatty and salty convenience and highly processed and junk foods.  Experiment with quick and healthy cooking techniques, such as baking, grilling and sauteing. Learn important food safety tips. Avoid unwanted stress. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Sleep well and drink plenty of water.

When you are trying to gain weight, you should eat food the rich in vitamins and minerals. 1. Healthy food includes meat, egg, milk, fruit vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Cashews, almonds, dates, walnuts, dry grapes, apricots, peaches are some of the dried fruits and nuts that can be added to breakfast, salads, cereal and desserts. Sesame seeds, ground nuts, and peanuts also contain fats in them and can help in adding that extra pounds you desire. 2. Sometimes loss of appetite may also cause weight loss. So you should take following remedies improving weight a]triphala kadha 4tsp before lunch and dinner b]amala juice 4 tsp + sugar 2 tsp+ honey 2 tsp empty stomach in the morning umami flavor increases satiety and enhances appetite. Due to improving hunger and digestion whatever you will eat more and even you eat more it will digest properly and your weight will increase naturally without any supplement.

Are long Distance Athletes like marathon & 10,000 meter professional athletes in India prone to getting diabetes since the running done is the most. There is no such gym workout that is done by such kind of athletes. Unlike a Sprint runner who does only 100m, 200m or long jump or hurdles, a long distance is mostly running or a 3000 steplechase. Also, diabetes is on the insulin level in the body. I'm a middle distance runner. Hence, i'm asking this question.

In a word, YES. Long distance runners can also develop diabetes, though the chances are much lesser than those in non-athletes. Diabetes doesn't mean the person has low Insulin alone. It means both that the person's body isn't producing enough Insulin for his/her requirements (known as Insulin deficiency) AND also that the Insulin that is produced is NOT able to exert its influence efficiently (a phenomenon known as Insulin Resistance). Thus, diabetes means both Insulin deficiency PLUS Insulin resistance and also a host of other metabolic derangements. I don't want to bore you any further...

You are very sensitive and over thinking of weight. In this stage you need psychological counselling. Your mind may think unnecessary manner. Mind control and proper mind setting is needed in this stage. With the help of psychologist it is possible. So please consult psychologist. Do not use any type of medicine. It will give side effects. So, please know the facts about you. Be friendly and be happy. Best wishes.

Gaining weight is as difficult as losing it, if you are naturally thin. Skinny people complain that they can't put on any weight. If you want to build up weight, don't just eat high-calorie junk foods and rely on unnecessary supplements. Choose foods that are energy-dense and nutrient-dense whenever possible. Following are some tips to follow to increase your weight. You will take some time to gain the weight you need, but be patient.------------------ 1. If you have a rapid metabolism, then you must increase your daily intake of healthy foods (increase your intake of carbohydrates) to compensate for the rate at which you burn energy. Eat six smaller meals a day you should also eat more energy dense foods like healthy oils, dry fruits, seeds, nuts, pulses, etc. Along with some starchy foods like potatoes, cereals, bread, pasta, rice, etc.-------------- 2. Consume more calories than you burn. Choose healthy calorie-dense food to add calories. Drink healthy beverages to add calories. Mangoes are rich in calories and carbohydrates, include them in your diet.------------ 3. Eat healthy food frequently, 5-6 times a day - 3 larger meals and 3 smaller meals alternately. Separate them by at least 3 hours so you can digest each meal fully. Don't go without food for 5-6 hours after having a major meal. For example, if you wish to consume 3000 calories a day, you may eat 3 larger meals of about 650 calories and 3 smaller meals of about 450 calories.------------ 4. Have a balanced diet.--------- 5. Exercise regularly for putting on weight. Some thin people think that exercise is not good for them. This is not true, it keeps the metabolism high. Remember that eating alone is not sufficient. You don't want to gain fat but lean mass, so exercise is important. Resistance training exercises will help to increase your muscle mass, which in turn will increase metabolism. Learn to distinguish between weight gaining exercises and weight loss exercises. Note that if you do not get enough amino acids during exercise, the existing muscle may break down. Amino acids come from protein foods so you should eat such foods after exercise. Keep in mind that excessive exercise without putting back the energy you have used will not help you to put on weight.-------------

Fall In LOVE to Stay Young And HEALTHY

Fall In LOVE to Stay Young And HEALTHY

Your health is affected by a number of physical, mental and emotional conditions. Falling in love is one of these factors. Being in love with someone does not only put a smile on your face, it can also boost your immunity and lower stress levels. Love can make you feel stronger both mentally and physically. Here are a few reasons why love is beneficial to your health.

You may have a longer life: love helps fight stress and hence helps reduce the harmful effects of stress. Stress is a direct trigger for many fatal conditions such as heart attack and strokes and thus, being in love reduces your risk of such diseases. Studies have also shown that when in love, a person takes more care of themselves and hence has a lower risk of having an accident, violence etc. Thus, being in love can give you a longer lifespan and can reduce chances of an early death.
You may have a lower risk of lifestyle diseases: along with boosting your immunity love can also improve your lifestyle. Instead of microwaving a tv dinner, a person in love is likely to eat a healthier meal with their partner and be more conscious of their diet. Being in love also makes you want to look good thus, encourages exercising. By following a healthy diet and exercising regularly, you can reduce your chances of suffering from lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Living with a person you love can also lower your alcohol and nicotine consumption and hence protect you from their ill effects.
It protects you from depression: companionship and love are good for a person’s mental health. Love can help stabilise emotions and keep you from depression. By living with someone a person does not have the chance to withdraw into themselves and can always rely on having someone to talk to. By sharing your thoughts and emotions with another person, difficult situations can become easier to handle and hence cause less stress and depression.
It can help you look younger: as mentioned earlier, being in love can make you take better care of yourself. It is often said that a person in love ’glows’. In a nutshell, being in love makes you happy and this releases happy hormones that aid in the removal of toxins and prevent premature ageing. When you’re in love, you may also notice your hair looking healthier and shinier.
