Men need to increase their sexual stamina with the help of healthy diet, regular and simple workout sessions, cutting down on the intake of alcohol, drug and cigarettes. The necessities of increasing the sexual stamina in men are as follows:Stretch groin muscle – You might find many people struggling with muscle pain in the morning after having passionate sex at night. It your can carry on with the exercise of stretching your groin on a regular basis; it might help reduce pain due to sexual position. With this you will easily have an increase in your sexual stamina and go ahead with forthcoming sexual epic. Staying mentally focused – If you want to do something with your own desire, no one will ever change your mind. If you are mentally focused about having sex with your partner, it is good not to let your positive repercussion play in your mind. It is the time to avoid all types of worries and take all types of precaution when you are with your partner in the bed.

Nosebleed - Strange Reasons That Can Lead To It!

Nosebleed - Strange Reasons That Can Lead To It!

Nosebleed is a condition wherein blood vessels burst in the nasal lining. Nosebleeds are fairly common and it is rarely a serious condition.

  1. Anterior nosebleed: It is caused by the eruption of a blood vessel at the tip of the nose. Anterior nosebleeds are generally easy to control by yourself or by a doctor.
  2. Posterior nosebleed: It is a rare type of nosebleed. Posterior nosebleed mostly occurs in older people. It occurs when an artery bursts behind the nose, which causes the blood to flow down the throat. Posterior nosebleeds are, thus, dangerous, and they need immediate medical attention.

Causes:

  1. There are numerous causes of nosebleeds. The most common cause of nosebleeds is dry air. Dry climates dehydrate the nasal membranes (internal nasal tissues). This dryness leads to crusting which can cause irritation or itching.
  2. Also, if you pick or scratch your nose too much, it can start to bleed.
  3. Decongestants for allergies, sinus infection or cold and antihistamines can make the nasal membranes dry and cause nosebleeds as well.

Some other causes of nosebleeds include:

  1. Some sort of foreign object stuck in the nasal cavity
  2. Allergic reactions
  3. Repeated sneezing
  4. Nose injuries (For example, car accidents, a punch to the face, etc.)
  5. Chemical irritants
  6. Cold air
  7. Respiratory infection
  8. Consuming high doses of aspirin-high dosage thins the blood down, thus triggering nosebleeds

There are other rarer causes as well, such as:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Bleeding disorder
  3. Blood clotting problems
  4. Cancer

Treatment: A nosebleed can easily be treated at home. While in a sitting position, close your nostril by squeezing the soft part of your nose. Hold your nose for ten minutes, then lean slightly forward. Inhale and exhale slowly using your mouth.

Never lie down when you are trying to stop a nosebleed, as you will end up swallowing the blood which can upset your stomach. Remove your hand from your nose after 10 minutes and check if the bleeding has stopped. If it has not, repeat the steps all over again.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What Causes Balance Disorder? Is Migraine a Cause?

What Causes Balance Disorder? Is Migraine a Cause?

Balance disorders are a combination of physiological factors that can make you feel unsteady or dizzy. While sitting, standing or lying down, you may feel as if you are floating, moving, or spinning and you may feel dizzy and dazed for the time being. This disorder can intervene in your daily activities of life, and can even lead to falls and accidents, which may cause you to end up with fractures and other types of injuries.

What causes balance disorder?

A combination and coordination of many body systems such as muscles, bones, vision, the balancing organ within the ear, heart and nerves help maintain normal balance. Dysfunction of these systems can lead you to encounter balance problems. Balance disorders can be caused by many types of conditions.

Some of the causes of the disorder are:

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): This occurs due to dislodged or displaced calcium crystals in the inner ear, which help you maintain balance. It is the most commonly found cause of vertigo. A spinning sensation while turning in bed is a common sign.

  1. Migraines: Migraines are a general cause of dizziness. Sensitivity to motion can also be caused by migraines. It can also lead to motion sickness, which is dizziness experienced when traveling in boats, cars or airplanes.
  2. Head injury: A severe concussion can also cause vertigo.
  3. Ramsay Hunt syndrome: Commonly known as zoster otitis, this condition affects the nerves close to the ears. It can be attributed to hearing loss, vertigo and pain in the ear.
  4. Vestibular problems and nerve damage: Damaged nerves in the legs can cause difficulty in movement and locomotion. Abnormalities and dysfunctions in the inner ear can lead to a sensation of dizziness and a heavy head.

How do you know if you have balance disorder?

Some of the characteristic symptoms of this condition include:

- Blurred vision
- Nausea and vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Blood pressure
- Fatigue
- Depression and anxiety
- Psychological disorientation
- Fluctuations in blood pressure and heart rate

How to Increase Your Libido with Homeopathy?

How to Increase Your Libido with Homeopathy?

It is not uncommon to hear complaints of reduced desire to engage in sex. This can happen with both partners, male and female. The underlying causes can be very many; from just age catching up to some underlying health condition. But within the age groups where normal sexual activity is essential for a healthy family environment, investigation has to be done to address the issue and ensure the partners enjoy each other’s company the ideal way. This condition of the desire for sex is termed 'libido' and homeopathy has the solution to increase it in a healthy way.

The First Aim will be to Tackle any Underlying Disorder
As mentioned, there are a number of related and unrelated issues the man or woman could be facing. The homeopathic practitioner will obviously hear you out on the different symptoms and after due diagnosis arrive at the underlying cause/causes for the lack of sexual desire. Some of the most frequently reported conditions include diabetes, obesity, hypo or hype thyroid and so on. There is the need to address this disorder first. Depending on how serious the condition is, the solutions for these can be found within homeopathy itself.

A Lot of Counselling Also Goes into it
There are cases where the presence of these physical conditions may not be the only reason behind the man and the woman or both. People have the tendency to read somewhere or listen to others and jump to conclusions that they cannot have a successful physical relationship. This can lead to avoidable situations such as erectile dysfunction or the female having a mental block and not being able to participate wholeheartedly in the act. These shortcomings are removed through proper counselling and maybe multiple sessions with the couple to slowly bring them out of their mental reservations and have healthy sex at suggested intervals.

Some Suggestions for Increasing Libido
Not stopping at just removing the obstacles to this lack of desire, homeopathy is capable of improving and increasing libido. This is generally done by prescribing some medications. These are tested compositions and have been in use for centuries and the practitioners are aware of the efficacy of the treatment.

Apart from any medication, the doctor may also offer some sound advice on lifestyle changes the patient has to bring about. These include avoidable habits such as consumption of alcohol. Excessive drinking brings down libido and either stopping it completely or moderating the frequency and quantum will help. Similarly, smoking is to be strictly avoided, even on other general health considerations. The doctor may also offer other suggestions on the food habits, maintaining a better physique and so on.

Once the person follows the doctor’s advice and continues to do so, there will be a distinct change in the sexual desire and unfettered enjoyment in the act itself.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
