Feels weak loss of energy and stressed when work for long hrs. No interest in sex.

MD Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
Feels weak loss of energy and stressed when work for long hrs. No interest in sex.
We often blame low libido to stress. Yes it is a very common cause, but in this mode of thinking, we might be missing some organic biological medical cause of what is now termed as erectile dysfunction. You need to undergo a series of blood tests and physical evaluation to rule out any definate cause of your'weakness" please shed your inhibitions and go to a urologist or a sexologist (qualified) and I am sure your days (and nights!) will be better.

The True Cause Of Pain: How The Spine Is Connected To Internal Organs

Spine problems often cause pain in the most random body parts. Then you start treating other diseases, but, of course, there is no effect.

This is why it is highly important to pay attention to the spine.

If you feel back pain, you can tell which part of the spine is affected by noticing anomalies, thus pointing problems related to a certain organ.

This infographic will help you learn how organs are skillfully linked the spine:

70% of headache occur from the spine.

Tinnitus, difficulty when swallowing, vision problems – all this can be a consequence of intervertebral disc dysfunction.

If you feel tingling or pain in your hands, check your spine in the neck area.

Problems with chest part of the spine can cause pain in the area of the heart, stomach and intestines.

Problems with the lumbar spine can be manifested as pain in the hips, thighs, reducing sensitivity in the legs, as well as walking.

Accordingly, treatment and strengthening the spine can help you get rid of the problems with other organs.

Pregnancy test 6 days before missed is negative. It means I am not pregnant. Planning for 2nd pregnancy after 3 yrs.

Pregnancy test 6 days before missed is negative. It means I am not pregnant. Planning for 2nd pregnancy after 3 yrs.
Pregnancy tests are designed to tell if your urine or blood contains a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is produced right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman's uterus. This usually happens -- but not always -- about six days after fertilization. We begin our pregnancy calculations from the first day of your last period, as most healthcare practitioners do. So by the time you miss your period and test positive on a pregnancy test, you're probably four or five weeks pregnant.

My periods are coming once in two months. please advise me something so that it should come in regular interval of time?
If your menses are irregular then 1st do the usg (abdomen-pelvis) to rule out pcod or any physiacal abnormality. To normalise the menses first you have to go through the basti or appropriate shodhan therapy as per your prikriti, for that visit your nearest ayurvedic doctor. Until then take tab. Chandraprabha vati 2 tabs tqice a day before food. Liq. Dashmoolarishta 3 tsf with same amount of water, before food. Medicines should be taken 15 minutes before food.

Five Telling Signs that Your Body Needs a Detox
Five telling signs that your body needs a detox

Over time, in our day-to-day lives, we keep dumping external factors like stress, pollution, etc. Inside our bodies. After it goes beyond your limits, there comes a time when the body needs to be cleansed, for it to function smoothly. Our body and our mind both go through a lot, for which detox is required from time to time. So, how does one know that the body needs detox? the body lets you know, and this is how:

1. Depression: you mood starts failing you and you feel stressed all the time. Depression seems to be looming over your head. You start eating wrong and eating more. Detox will not help cure clinical depression, however a mind detox helps rejuvenate the mind and allow positivity to flow in. A short vacation or even a staycation helps a lot. And if you have very less time, just take an afternoon off and spend it doing what you love the most.

2. Constipation: this is the sign that your stomach needs cleansing. You've been eating a lot of trash and the foods going inside you are not supporting proper digestion. A good cleanse with clean your colon completely, along with the digestive tract. This will help you digest better.

3. Laziness: if you are feeling fatigued and drained of energy even after a good night's sleep, and/or throughout the day, there is not much cup after cup of coffee can do. In fact, caffeine only makes the situation worse. In such a situation, it is advised that you go for a body and mind detox to get rid of all the toxins in the body.

4. Losing focus: we all lose focus at times. But if this is becoming a constant feature and the mental fog is just not lifting, this is your body telling you how desperately it needs a detox. Listen to your body and free yourself from the toxins.

5. Weight gain: unexplained weight gain and then inability to lose weight is a big concern, especially the inability part. This is an indication that you need to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. Cleanse your mind and body, and then start on your path of losing weight.

Why You Should Be Stacking Up on Protein

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition -, Diploma in Dietitics , Health & Nutrition

Why You Should Be Stacking Up on Protein

Proteins are extremely important for your health. Protein is present in every cell of your body, it generally makes up your hair and nails along with keratin. Your body needs various supplements to stay healthy, such as fats and carbohydrates. These are called macronutrients (you need to consume it in huge amounts to stay hale and hearty).

Where can you find protein?

  1. It is present in milk, fish, eggs and meat.
  2. If you happen to be a vegan you can consume soy, beans, legumes and nut butter.
  3. Protein bars, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, anchovies, peanut butter, tofu, wheat germ, quinoa and edamame also contain a high amount of protein.

Why should you consume protein?

  1. It can reduce the risk of diabetes by producing natural insulin and progesterone protein.
  2. The substance called hemoglobin carries oxygen to your blood cells. So without hemoglobin oxygen would not be supplied to your muscles.
  3. If you have a heat shock, proteins can help reduce the stress and rebuild your cells.
  4. If you have lack of protein in your diet, it will be difficult for you to move and can also result in paralysis.
  5. Since protein is present in your hair and nails, it also helps to make your skin taut and look younger since structural protein includes collagen. There are a lot of products available in the market like collagen creams; since collagen contains protein it is not possible that creams containing proteins applied on the skin can make your skin better. It is highly necessary to consume protein such that your blood flow contains proteins. This will make your skin seem youthful.
  6. After a surgery, it is important that you stack up on protein, because protein helps to close your wounds and make them heal faster.
  7. Protein shakes are also very useful when you want to attain a healthier physique after hitting the gym. During a workout, your body goes through a lot of micro-tears (wear and tear caused in your muscle due to contraction of your muscle). So taking protein shakes after a heavy workout helps your muscle tissues to be healed completely.

You should do a pregnancy test. Take the urine pregnancy test or do a more conclusive serum beta hcg test to be sure you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant, kindly get an ultrasound done to rule out any tubal pregnancy.

You have probably got anaemic due to prolonged periods. Talk to your gynaecologist to find out why you are bleeding for two months. Could be a hormonal disbalance. Also get your haemoglobin test and start iron tablets.
