Failing Libido- What You Need to Do

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Your fantasies might have taken a backseat for the time- being or might have remained silenced for more than a while. The other processes of your usual life go on perfectly except for a few changes that you either consider as minute or you attribute them to any cause other than lowered libido. Failing libido can create hurdles in a man as well as a woman's life and thus should be treated at the earliest possible. Even if you don't care much about an impaired sex life; failing libido can bring about considerable changes in your overall health that can prove to be harmful in the long run.

The common causes of decreased libido can be listed as below:-

Terminal illnesses like cancer, diabetes and neurological disorders can hamper your sex drive.
Acute exhaustion from performing at work, tending to a family or to a new born can rid you of all energy.
An instance of sexual abuse in the past can result in lowered libido.
A lousy lifestyle where you either smoke or drink regularly can prevent you from experiencing sexual desires.
Irregular sleep patterns can be a contributing factor as well.
In males testosterone levels may sharply drop due to aging. However, in females estrogen levels may drop after surgeries pertaining to the vaginal tract, after menopause or after childbirth and subsequent breast- feeding. 
Ways to deal with your failing libido:-

Take bupropion to help your case- dopamine and norepinephrine are two basic hormones particularly necessary for a good sex drive. The consumption of bupropion is capable of inducing the secretion of these two hormones.
Try eating a mediterranean diet- a mediterranean diet is perhaps the most reliable solution for a majority of diseases that plague men and women of modern times. This diet is known to treat failing libido in elderly people as well. A mediterranean diet requires you to eat lots of vegetables and olive oil, while protein should be consumed in limited portions.
Meditate on a daily basis- meditation concentrates your complete energy on the well- being of your mind and body. It helps you to be conscious and aware of the sensations you feel or may feel. When continued over a long stretch of time, it can restore your interest in sexual activities.
Make significant efforts to change your lifestyle- if you have an erratic lifestyle, sexual dysfunction is almost inevitable. You need to follow a routine to prohibit your libido from failing you.

What diet is recommended for high uric acid? Please advice.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist
Ask Free Question
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

When you masterbate then semen comes out. Sperms are in the semen and you cannot see. If you masterbate not very early the semen production will good. Pimples are most likely for two reasons. 1. Unclean face and hairs. Clean your face at night and shampoo hairs approximately twice a week. 2. You may be having constipation. Eat fresh vegetables and fresh fruits daity and less of fast food. Good habits always pays good dividends. Masterbation is done because you do not have a partner. After doing it one get a feeling of guilt -" why I did this" but this bring little negative feeling in mind. Excess of this is bad certainly if you are not taking appropiate diet. Now this is hurting you. You have to get away by changing your mind set. For this firstly think positive. Then stay busy and use your extra energy into more constructive way. Get up early in morning and go for one hour of jogging or brisk walking. Start eating healthy food like fresh fruits and fresh vegetables. No fast food and fats. In the day stay busy with work / studies evening go for games. All these will lead you to positive health and your negative thoughts will go away. In medicines also we give multivitamis but they are artificial ones. So if you follow this you will be in better health and will enjoy sexual life.

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern, In my experience there are happy couples who have sex every day, have sex once a week or once a month. It's not a matter of quantity but quality. More important than the frequency of sex is how satisfied couples are with their sex lives. Less sex doesn't automatically equate to less love, happiness and fulfilment, especially for couples who have been together for a long time. For them companionship, trust and mutual reliability are often more important than lots of steamy sex. Please note that. For women, sex is usually an emotional act as well as a physical act. The deeper the emotional connection, the better the sex will be for her and the deeper her desire for her lover will become. Share your feelings with your woman and express how you feel about her freely. For her, what goes on outside the bedroom is an important factor of what will occur in the bedroom. Women's bodies are fun to explore. Experiment and try things as she allows. She'll thank you later. Although this seems like a lot to remember, it will be worth it for you. Your pleasure is directly connected to how she feels. And trust me, if you’re not giving it to her how she likes it, she’s not going to want to give it to you at all.

Fruits when eaten as a whole are alkaline, however any processing like pulping or juicing it up will definately make it acidic as it will be processed outside the body. Also fibres and certain vitamins are robbed from it on processing. Adding water will dilute the nutrients further. So best to have whole fruits.

6 Food Combinations That Can Be Harmful

MD , MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Hogging on what comes to your platter affects your body like nothing else. All foods have different characteristics and what a lot of people don?t know is that some foods cannot be paired with each other. Foods are either acidic or basic. And if both the types are combined, it will make a sludge in your system which will rot inside for hours or days. The harm it causes is invisible, but irreversible.

Here are some hazardous combinations you must avoid.

1) Proteins and carbohydrates or starch - Proteins esp. Red meats should never be eaten with starch or carbohydrates, while it is okay to have white meat with carbohydrates. Mixing proteins and starch in a single meal slows the digestion process.

2) Fruits with other foods - Most fruits do not mix well with vegetables, carbohydrates, other fruits or fats and therefore must be eaten either on an empty stomach or separately from other foods. Sub-acid fruits like apple, apricot, kiwi, grapes, lichee, mango, papaya, peach, pear, plum etc. Have an approximate digestion time of 30-40 minutes. Acid fruits like blackberry, sour grapes, cranberries, cherries, lime, orange, pineapple etc. Have an approx digestion time of 20-30 minutes.

3) Milk and other foods - Milk does not go well with any of the other food types. If it is combined with anything, it slows the process of digestion.

4) Aerated drinks and other foods - Carbonated drinks or their diet counterparts, both are equally harmful, esp. When consumed with your regular meal. Plus, the added baggage of sugar that goes in this can be harmful for our system in the long run.

5) Desserts right after meals - Sweets are tempting right after a meal but it is advisable to space them out and wait for an hour or two before you enjoy the dessert. This is because sweets don't gel well with other food groups.

6) Alcohol and Dinner ? Alcohol slows the digestion process of food esp. Indian food which is usually greasy. If you cannot avoid it, stick to a glass of wine maybe, preferably red wine. And to take care, you can drink a cup of green tea before and after drinking the wine. The green tea will cleanse your system of the toxins.
