Medicine is for life but you can use pomegranade juice/ apple cider vinegar / honey and fresh lemon juice everyday -all of the above or any 1 or 2, because some studies have claimed the benefits about reducing blockages / not making fresh blockages and these are harmless home remedies.

Sir/ madam, I am 25 years old and I am having pigeon chest means like a deep and chest is full front side in top, I consult a family doctor and they are telling it is not a problem, please give me a suggestion for this? And it is not a problem for further? And also I am suffering breathing problems in night time coming sounds while sleeping. Please provide me solution for this.

General Physician, Ahmednagar
pigeon chest, is a deformity of the chest characterized by a protrusion of the sternum and ribs. the chest wall is rigidly held in an outward position. Thus, respirations are inefficient. deformities can have a significant psychologic impact. Some people, especially those with milder cases, live happily with pectus carinatum. For others, though, the shape of the chest can damage their self-image and confidence. bodybuilding techniques may be useful for balancing visual impact. Most commonly, pectus carinatum develops in 11-to-14-year-old pubertal males undergoing a growth spurt. the use of a customized chest-wall brace that applies direct pressure on the protruding area of the chest produces excellent outcomes.. This device is easily hidden under clothing and must be worn from 14 to 24 hours a day.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.
