Hello sir before one week I found a worm in my stool than after that I took a zentel tablet. Is one tablet sufficient...
Yes, its usually sufficient. Follow the following tips:- · Pay attention to your health and food intake. · To increase your appetite, have a glass of lime water or 1 cardamom (elaichi) before your meal. · Have minimum 4 meals in a day. · Drink 1 glass of milk twice a day. · Try to enjoy your meals and gradually increase the quantity you eat every time. · A balance diet should have all essential nutrients in it. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should include combination of Both Carbohydrates and Proteins for e.g. Oats with Milk or Poha/ Upma with a glass of milk. If you do not like milk have 1-2 egg whites in the morning along with your breakfast. · You need to focus on your protein intake: Increase your protein intake e.g. Milk, dairy products- cheese, paneer, lentils (dals), nuts (soya, peanuts, dry fruits ), pulses e.g. Rajma, chole, kidney beans etc. Sprouts. If you are a non-vegetarian, then you can have proteins by also eating eggs, chicken, fish. Make sure you are including at least 2 serving of any of these in your daily meal. · Lunch and dinner again should be a combination of Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats which could have dal, roti, sabji/chicken, salad. · Please do have minimum 4 almonds or a small bowl of peanuts every day. · Please ensure that you drink at least 3 litres of water every day.

Hi, semen leakage is a kind of sexual disorder found in males. The problem of semen leakage arises from the habit of over masturbation. Over masturbation causes sperms to ooze or leak out of the shaft, without any erection. Semen leakage is a sign of sexual exhaustion. Semen leakage is caused due to weakening of parasympathetic nerve. It is very essential to sustain the erection and keep the ejaculation valve tight to overcome this problem of seminal leakage. One of the important step for overcoming the problem of seminal leakage is to get rid of or to effectively reduce masturbation habit and ejaculation frequency. Intake of more proteins in the form of soyabean products must be increased. It is also important to reduce the amount of caffeine in the diet. Consumption of nutty foods like sunflower seeds, peanuts, sea food, vegetables, aswagandha, shilajit and shatavari to enhance. Ok.

Through ultrasound in October it was detected that I have a fatty liver, immediately after that I had stopped non veg, alcohol, smoking and tried to maintain a healthy diet at home. I was also taking liv52 tabs. In October I had got my blood tests done for liver function all the tests had come normal within the desired range. After all these changes and alterations, I got my tests done again, now my sgot is very high which was normal in October, sgpt is very high which was normal in October, Alkaline phosphatase is also very high which was normal in October. This clearly proves that leaving non veg, alcohol, smoking, take appropriate medications and having a healthy diet with regular exercise has clearly worked out in the reverse direction. How did this happen?

Fatty liver is a common condition of the liver due to modern life-style, food, and drink habits. Collection of fats in liver cells is called fatty liver. This condition is also called steatosis hepatis or steatorrhoeic hepatosis. Fatty liver by itself though abnormal, is a relatively harmless condition. Liver is the largest organ in the human body. It plays a vital role in keeping the biochemical balance intact. Why fatty liver occurs, is unknown. A fatty diet or overeating by itself never results in a fatty liver. The fat may come from increased absorption from the intestines or from elsewhere in the body. But, putting it generally, the liver loses its capacity to eliminate fats deposited within it. Yet, 70% of persons suffering from NASH are found to be obese. Homeopathy addresses the underlying causes behind fatty liver, improves liver functions and reduces the symptoms as well as modifies the disease process. Fatty liver is partly reversible condition if treated in the early stages. In later stages, it can help to improve the liver functions. Well chosen homeopathic medicines can help control and reduce Fatty liver disease. Homeopathy is recommended for cases of Fatty Liver. A homeopathic constitutional treatment will give you best results naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services

Hello, Gaining weight continuously can be due to a lot of reasons. Suggestion is to get checked for any underlying medical condition. -Exercise daily for an hour (Can be at home or simple exercises like running, jogging, brisk walking, on the spot marching, squats, etc) -Include protein in your diet (taking protein rich foods post workout helps in muscle building) -Increase fiber in your diet (Will help you stay full) -Include fruits and vegetables in your diet (2-3 serving) -Water intake of atleast 3L per day -Add healthy fat like nuts to your diet. -Avoid/Exclude fried, sugary and junk food -Eat a balanced and healthy diet -Do not skip breakfast as 40% of days energy is from breakfast NOTE: The above mentioned practices can change according to a specific medical condition.

Fatty liver is due to fat deposition in liver cells. Liver enzyme are also raised which is indicative of liver derangement. You should reduce your weight and restrict fatty diet. Exercise daily atlas 30 mt will show you the results. Only medicine will not going to help.
