It's cause of concern that your insulin is not acting to neutralize the sugar while you are taking good medicines prescribed by your experience doctor. This is non response of drugs. It's not fault in treatment by your doctor. I would suggest the support of ayurveda medicine as support to your current medicine. Both won't counteract with each other. Observing the response of this integrative approach, further directions would be decided. If you agree, I would mention the first phase of safe, side effect less, easy to take and economic medicines which will prevent complications also.

I left smoking 15 days ago. Now I am suffering from Constipation and acidity. I am not able to understand if this is because of smoking or not if it is due to smoking. Please help me how to get rid of these problems.

Avoid smoking. The nicotine in the tobacco affects the opening and closing of the food pipe allowing back flow of the normal stomach acid into the food pipe. Eat small meals. Instead of 3 big meals, have 5 small meals every 3-4 hours. Eat slowly. Don’t sleep on a full stomach. Try to have an early dinner. Make sure there is a gap of 3 hours between your last meal and bed time. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Avoid certain known foods which cause acidity like, coffee, tea, colas, and citrus fruits, oily and spicy food. If your weight is high – losing a few kilos will reduce acidity too. Keep a gap of 2 hours between exercise and meals. Drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Try meditation and yoga to minimise daily stress.

Several things can be done to prevent cold: -always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. -cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. -get plenty of rest/sleep. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -drink plenty of fluids (veg/tomato soups, dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food (like sprouts/milk). Avoid fatty foods or drinks with caffeine -treatment: a cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

Im looking lean and I'm getting marriage in 3 months. Can I go to gym nd workout? It will affect sexual life? My age 28.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Im looking lean and I'm getting marriage in 3 months. Can I go to gym nd workout? It will affect sexual life? My age 28.
By your height and weight, you seem to be healthy and if you feel the need, you can do the GYM exercises too, under supervision of a certified gym trainer or a doctor. Going to Gym helps improve muscle tone skin complexion muscle strength it relieves joint pains and also improves overall circulation. When a man has erection, it is because of the good blood flow which goes to his penis. A gym going man has a good circulation due to his work out and this can help his erections to be better. BUT do not fall prey to people who will try and ask you to take protein powders or injections of testosterone to improve your body FAST....... There is no shortcut to success, and the body which grown on these also falls flat when the exercise is stopped. Also injections to build body can harm the body's production of testosterone and this may make the person from having NO erection or poor erection.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Your pain may be due to muscular or bony problem -avoid straining, bending, lifting weights -when doing exercise do warm up for 5-10 min like walking, jogging, also if lifting weights then warm up then gradually increase the weight after a week -applypainkiller gel three times a day -take an over the counter pain killer tablet if pain is more -it is not because of cancer -eat well, keep hydrated, drink 8-10 glasses of water to keep well hydrated.

It depends on your capacity to produce shukra by nutrients and'vrushya' herbs. More you waste'rasa' intake should be more to recoup shukra otherwise you will deteriorate. It's your personal choice and family atmosphere giving you right to masturbate anywhere in your home. In some countries, they say, people are masturbating besides sea beaches because public acceptance is there.

What are the symptoms of asthma? How can we prevent that and what are the precautions should be taken?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of asthma? How can we prevent that and what are the precautions should be taken?
Dear Lybrate User, Asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for TC, DC, ESR & IgE. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via Lybrate. In the mean-time you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GRINDELIA ROBUSTA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Hi lybrate-user, its ok do not worry about it, its curable. Its called premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation, or ejaculating before you or your partner wanted you to, is a common problem that strikes most men at some point in their lives. Several factors can influence when ejaculation occurs, but it can be controlled with some forethought or, in extreme cases, medical intervention. Try edging. Edging, or orgasm control, is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal while delaying ejaculation. It takes practice, but it gets easier over time. Here are two methods recommended by the national institutes of health to stop premature ejaculation: stop-and-start method: have intercourse as usual until you feel yourself coming uncomfortably close to orgasm. Immediately and abruptly cease all stimulation for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Squeeze method: have intercourse as usual until you feel like orgasm is seconds away. Abruptly stop other stimulation and gently squeeze your thumb and forefinger around the part of the penis where the glans meets the shaft (or your partner could do this). After squeezing for a few seconds, pause all stimulation for another 30 seconds before resuming intercourse. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Try this, this a good method to begin with. Do not lose hope consult me for therapy.
