4 Ways To Keep Your Circulatory System Healthy

4 Ways To Keep Your Circulatory System Healthy

1. Engage in physical activity

Exercise of 30 minutes or more, most days of the week is advised to improve the health of your heart and circulatory system. Physical activity can help manage your weight and reduce your risk of developing other conditions that make your circulatory system work harder, like high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Exercise is even effective when broken down into shorter sessions.

2. Quit smoking and tobacco use

Smoking and using tobacco products significantly increases your risk for heart disease. Damage to your heart and circulatory system by the chemical compounds in tobacco can cause atherosclerosis, which may lead to heart attack. Once you quit smoking, your risk of heart disease significantly decreases over the next year, according to the mayoclinic website. Regardless of how long you have smoked or used other tobacco products, you will notice the benefits of quitting as soon as you do.

3. Eat high quality foods

Your food intake can significantly improve the health of your circulatory system and heart. Diets containing five to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products are most beneficial to the circulatory system. Avoiding processed foods, foods that are high in saturated and trans fats, and excessive alcohol consumption can also improve your circulatory system health.

 
4. Maintain a healthy weight

Managing a healthy weight plays a major role in the health of your circulatory system. Being overweight can increase risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol, all of which put you at increased risk for heart attack and other circulation problems. By just losing 10 percent of your body weight, you can significantly increase the odds of not developing these chronic diseases.

There are many treatments available for early ejaculation none of which will give you a lasting cure until you learn how to be in charge of this anxiety. Therefore the 3 best premature ejaculation “cures” need to focus on controlling the communication between your brain and your body. I am giving you 3 Steps to correct yourself first. The first cure for PE is correcting your focus. If you are over stimulating your brain with thoughts of sexual fantasies, how great it’s going to feel when you’re inside that hot, moist vagina and you’re constantly thinking about your penis… I can guarantee you are going to lose control and ejaculate early. This may be within seconds or minutes of entering her vagina. Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are actually the same problem, but at opposite ends of the arousal scale. Many men bounce from one end of the arousal scale to the other without it ever feeling “safe” – which makes for stressful sexual experiences for all involved. The second best cure is controlling performance anxiety. Being constantly anxious about the workings of your penis equates to leaving your mind in your penis – and if your mind is in your penis, once more you will overstimulate your brain and ejaculate early. The real problem here is that anxiety is constantly being triggered because your brain doesn’t have a plan to follow, a complete sexual strategy to control your arousal levels during foreplay and intercourse. You won’t be able to solve your anxiety problem without understanding the order of how your sexual programs need to work. Being able to control the sexual and emotional programs in your BRAIN are paramount to overcoming your anxiety as well as your premature ejaculation problems. The third best premature cure is taking control of the sexual act. This can only be achieved with a complete sexual strategy which encompasses the whole of the sexual act. Sex isn’t just about putting your penis in and hoping for the best – that’s a recipe for a big mess to clean up, both inside and outside the bedroom! The reason why so many men struggle to overcome their premature problem is because they don’t have a complete plan. For instance, Kegel exercises are great for strengthening the penis muscle, but contracted at the wrong time will actually cause early ejaculation. Sexual fantasies which are currently making you lose control when used in the right way become an amazing tool for solving sexual problems. Performance anxiety is only there because you are uncertain of how to proceed – of how to take control during the sexual act. With the right strategies in place you can eliminate anxiety, gain confidence in your ability to fulfil both yourself and your partner emotionally as well as sexually AND you will be able to choose the timing of when you ejaculate. In summary, the 3 best premature ejaculation cures are based around the knowledge of how to synchronise your mind and your penis enabling you to stay in control of when you ejaculate so sex can become enjoyable instead of stressful.

Try hCG test once more. If it comes negative this time, then it will be confirmed that she is not pregnant. Take Ashoka Q 10 drops in one glass water daily for 1 week. It will be alright. Still if you have any queries, please let me know. Take care. :)

First of all, get this test repeated from a different laboratory of good reputation. It may be that this test report may have varied result. Secondly, if your report is this high then your medicine dose need to be adjusted as soon as possible. In this regard, I would further advice to get tested asap and follow up on Lybrate.

Gestational Hypothyroidism

Advanced Infertility, MIS TRAINING, FICMCH, PGDS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Gestational Hypothyroidism

During pregnancy, it is not uncommon for women to contract thyroid diseases like gestational hyperthyroidism and gestational hypothyroidism. The main problem, however, is that the symptoms of gestational hypothyroidism are very much similar to those, which can be observed during a normal pregnancy. The difficulty in differentiating between the two is the sole reason why many pregnant women are caught unawares, eventually resulting in further complications after the first trimester.

If gestational thyroid diseases are left untreated, you and your baby may experience a ton of problems such as preeclampsia, low birth weight, miscarriage and premature birth amongst others. Needless to say, if you already have a history of pre-existing hypothyroidism, then you will most certainly need more medical attention than is required.

Symptoms:
Symptoms of gestational hypothyroidism, like high fatigue and excessive weight gain, are hardly distinguishable from those associated with a normal pregnancy. Other symptoms can also include:

  1. Severe constipation
  2. Goiter
  3. Muscle cramps
  4. Trouble sleeping
  5. Hair loss
  6. Dry skin
  7. Difficulty in concentration
  8. Memory problems
  9.  Anxiety
  10. Intolerance to cold temperatures

Causes:
There may be a variety of causes that are responsible for the development of gestational hypothyroidism but the most common cause is usually an autoimmune disease known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which stimulates the body's immune system to attack thyroid gland cells, leading to a deficiency in the number of active thyroid cells and enzymes, and ultimately resulting in a shortage of the thyroid hormone.

Treatment:
Treatment for gestational hypothyroidism is normally uncomplicated, and follows just two simple steps:

  1. Proper diagnosis, via the use of a synthetic hormone called levothyroxine, which is very much similar to the hormone T4 produced by the thyroid.
  2. Continuous monitoring of thyroid function tests held every four to six weeks during pregnancy.

If you donot have any problem in contact then no need to worry about tightness. For pcod thing get follicular study done. This will indicate whether ovulation is occurring or not. If there is no ovulation then get hormone test done.

6 Early Morning Tricks to Kick-start Your Metabolism

6 Tricks to activate metabolism in the morning 

Boosting your body's metabolism is largely related to burning calories and reducing weight. Try these effective methods esp. if you are overweight, if you are already lean, never over-do anything, be it exercise, eating or drinking. 

6 ways that can help you improve your metabolism. 

  1. Workout: Working out can be the easiest and best way of boosting your metabolism. Do walking, running and cycling. Sweating will tell you how much you have worked out and if you continue it for few months, the results will be favorable.
  2. Eat fresh fruits and salads: Don't starve yourself by not eating food properly. Avoid fatty and fried food but have as much fresh fruits and salad as you can. This will not make you put on weight. Keep taking fruits and salads at short intervals because these have an ability to get digested early as compared to fatty food.
  3. Take plenty of water: For increasing your metabolism, kick start your day with at least 3-4 glasses of water. It will help all your other efforts of reducing weight in sync. It will keep your body hydrated.
  4. Drink lemon in warm water and green tea: Waking up early can actually boost your metabolism; you can see the results after following this habit. Along with this, metabolism will get a boost if you get up half or one hour early. Leave the habit of taking normal tea, instead start taking green tea, it will not only be healthy but since it's an antioxidant, it will take care of your immune system as well.
  5. Lift weights: Lifting weights can give you instant results. Within a month of lifting weight you will experience boost in your metabolism. But this must be done under trainer's guidance.
  6. Eat boiled eggs and never skip breakfast: Having boiled eggs in the morning will fulfill your protein intake. Also, it will keep your stomach full for a longer time. On a way to boosting your metabolism, it's recommended not to skip breakfast at any cost.
