Dear Nawal, It is really sad to see your father dementing. Please let me know the type of dementia CMC or RINPAS diagnosed him. He is too young to get Alzheimer's type of dementia. If we investigate 10 persons, only one of them will have a treatable cause. Unfortunately it looks your father did not have a treatable cause. So we may not be able to bring him back to his original self. But there are few cholinesterase inhibitor kind of drugs available. They at least stop further deterioration of dementia. The care takers need counselling to prevent burn out. Few day care and in house care help them to preserve whatever brain function that are not lost. Please don't spend much money and time in taking him to place to place. Instead spend that money for the care taker or rehabilitation places.

What are the side effects of drinking lemon and honey with warm water in the morning?
There is no side effect of drinking lemon and honey with warm water in early morning. Infact there are several benefit if taken in correct way. Take one full glass filled with warm water, add half lemon into it and one teaspoon of honey and stir it well and drink. If taken in correct proportion then it has several benefits let me share some of them: 1) weight loss - many researches has been done to rule out that drinking warm water, lemon and honey helps to reduce weight loss. 2) relieves from constipation by stimulating digestive system. 3) better digestion. You must have seen many people taken lemon water after taking heavy food in night. It is because lemon helps to digest the food. On the other hand if taken daily early morning, it makes your liver, digestive system strong. Honey also work as an antibacterial so keeps your immune system strong. 4) improves dehydration by cleaning the lymphatic system. Mostly lack of water cause you several illness so lemon honey in warm water flushes all toxins from the body and keeps you healthy. 5) act as a diuretic so helps in cleaning urinary tract. 6) maintain oral hygiene. 7) keeps your skin glow and boost your immunity. There are many other benefits of it. So do not worry and continue with drinking lemon and honey with warm water early morning. There is no medically proven negative effect of it, if taken in correct form. So continue with it. Its a very good habit. Be healthy and fit. Best wishes.

If you really want to get rid of this problem and enjoy, you have only one option- avoid shame, get medical check up done so that we can exactly detect the cause and treat the cause. Otherwise you can try hundred medicines, but none will work if you don't know the exact cause.

3 Benefits Of Kegel Exercises

BHMS, MD - Acupuncture
Sexologist, Faridabad
3 Benefits Of Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises are simple contraction-and-relaxation exercises that make the pelvic muscles stronger. The pelvis area holds a person's genitalia, which contains a series of muscles and tissues that work in coordination and combination to perform sexual and bowel functions. A set of weak pelvic muscles would lead to issues such as the inability to control bladder and bowel functions.

Finding the right muscles can be troubling. An easy way to locate these muscles would be to place a clean finger inside the vagina and tighten the vaginal muscles around it. Another way would be to stop urinating mid-flow. This is because the pelvic muscles, which pertain to sex, help to control this action too. Once a woman finds the right muscles, all she has to do is to contract and relax them periodically.

Kegel exercises are highly beneficial for sexual functions in a number of ways. Some of the benefits include:

  • Kegel exercises help to control stress incontinence, which is a condition that causes spontaneous discharge of urine when abdominal pressure increases suddenly. This means a person would leak urine when he/she laughs, coughs, jogs, sneeze or lifts anything weighty.
  • Kegel exercises also help to prevent urge incontinence, which has been described as a sudden and strong urge to urinate. In a healthy bladder, the muscles remain relaxed as the bladder progressively fills up. As the bladder finally fills up, a person gets the urge to urinate. In case one has urge incontinence, the bladder might feel full even if it is not. Kegel exercises help to strengthen these muscles and recover control.
  • Kegel exercises can be particularly helpful after childbirth. This is so because pelvic muscles stretch and weaken during childbirth, which can cause problems such as urinary incontinence and can also cause the muscles to sag. In these cases, Kegel exercises are helpful. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Improper beard growth, development of male breasts and inability to sustain erection for a long time. Zinc supplements or any other supplements I shud go for?

Hello, All the symptoms are denoting towards drastic hormonal changes in your body. Testosterone is the male sex hormone which is responsible for beard growth, and hard erection. When estrogen (female sex hormone) interfere with testosterone metabolism in the body it suppress its function and can result in male breasts (gynaecomastia). Zinc won't solve your issue, you need a proper prescribed treatment. Fortunately the situation can be reversed and you can live a normal healthy life.
