! am 50 years old. I am using BP tablets lose-H since 10 years. Actually I do morning walk and yoga. And I don't have BP in fact. May stop using BP tablets. Or at least, may shift to Ayurveda/home/Unani as alternative medicine for the same issue. Recently, I was impressed with Ayurveda treatment for some other issue. Please give suggestion.

Yes. BP will change during intercourse. If you are back to normal afterwards. Not to worry. Put your heart and mind in the process and partner. Don't waste thought on BP.

GARLIC AND CHOLESTEROL A NEW FINDING

Some preliminary studies suggested that garlic might lower blood cholesterol levels slightly. But one study on the safety and effectiveness of three garlic preparations (fresh garlic, dried powdered garlic tablets, and aged garlic extract tablets) found no effect on cholesterol levels.

Recently, Nov. 28th I was treated for heart attack and 2 stents inserted. Dr. advised that another block is there and it is very thin and thin stent to be placed and urged me to do at the earliest. After first angioplasty I started doing some walking exercise and other works. I am retired aged 60 years. Since already spent a large amount for angioplasty and another angio which cost high can be done a little later. Is it ok to do since I don't have any problem like pain etc. I heard there is an hospital - Puttaburthi Sai Baba hospital in Bangalore where it would cheap. I am living in Chennai. Pls advise.

Narayna Hriday hospital by Dr. Devi Shetty is also around Bangalore. Confirm. 3rd stent may not be needed as collaterals blood vessels take over the task of blocked vessels of the heart , since you do not have any symptoms. My suggestion to everyone is , if there are more than 2 blocks , a by pass surgery is better tolerated than multiple stents. Take care.

I am 46 years old male. My weight is 91 kgs and my height is 5ft 11 inches. Over the past 16 years I have suffered from hyperacidity (heartburn) and sleep apnea (snoring). But somebody suggested me to have antacid pills like pantocid. I started taking them since 2004 until 5-6 years back when I limited them to 1-2 tabs a week because of my knee problem. In due course I took to a habbit of 4-5 sachets of rajnigandha sadha paan masaala per day as a stimulant to stay alert during the day. And lately replaced (about 1.5 yrs now) it with sweety pan supaari (15-20 sachets a day). Though having supaari has brought tremendous relief to acidity (now I only take pantocid a tab a week) and also snoring but ever since made urinate quite often during the night. Whenever I try to sleep (even during the day) I get a full bladder feeling frequently and get a disturbed or no sleep (virtually) because of it. I have got my blood sugar checked 2-3 times but they were normal. Sometimes I sweat during the sleep for initial hours. I have a low heamoglobin count 8-10 (varying depending upon the efforts to grow them back). I also have the high tri-glycerides level but my good-bad cholestrol ratio is under control. I try to have omega3 capsules (amway) 2 times a week to counter the cholestrol. I am a regular weekend (fri-sun) alcohol drinker (90 to 150 mls during the drinking day). Currently worried about my sleepless nights due to irritating urine bouts. I got a ultrsound done in feb 14 to check if I have any enlarged prostate but it came out to be -ve with all vital organs working fine. Please suggest what to do.

Sinus problem should be evaluated by nasal endoscopy and ct scan of sinus. This will give us idea about extent and severity of problem. So that we will come to know that you will improve with medicines or you need surgery and if surgery than what kind of surgery. By that time you try to avoid dust smokes perfumes and pollutants. Take steam inhalation.

Hello, without examination we can not diagnose it as heart attack. chest pain may be because of heart problems , lung problems, gastrointestinal problems, anxiety or panic attack. So please mention few more symptoms associated with it so that i can diagnose the cause and suggest you the medication accordingly. And check your BP and ECG test done.

You can get your general physician's opinion as to any abnormalities in your heart functioning. Once he/she declares that you are normal, you should stop checking your heart beat or pulse rate etc. Every now and then. It seems to me that you have developed this behaviour as a habit. It can be unlearned by not doing or thinking about it. Regular practice of pranayama and meditation has soothing effects on hear rates and associated anxieties.

I can imagine how difficult life has been for you. I hope you are under medical care. Along with medicines, it will be very helpful for you to be under psychotherapy. The therapist will help you to understand why you are finding it difficult to trust other people and what is your perception about self and others. With a few modifications in behaviour and thinking patterns you would be able to cope up better.
