If being vegetarian helps in controlling the cholesterol. Benefits in uplifting the mood, keeps your heart good then why every gym person is suggested to take chicken and fish. Why doctors advise to a patient who is weak to start taking near soup, eggs and also to ear chicken. I am asking this question because I just read an article on encouraging people to ear only vegetarian food. No body builder, athlete, boxer, actors can survive without non vegetarian food. So much do, in West you hardly see vegetarian people. It is strange to see the quiz where they emphasized to being vegetarian.Please tell.

Hi, being vegetarian doesn't means you are sparing yourself from nutrients! there are so many people in this earth who are purely vegetarian but still are in good shape and health both! they also do have strong immunity and stamina. Except one vitamin - vitamin b12 which is found in animal products or non-vegetarian food, each and every nutrient can be obtained from a vegan diet! the motto should be having a healthy, nutritious and a balanced diet throughout the day which contains all the nutrients in a right proportion. Remember one thing - without a vegan diet which is rich in vitamins and minerals (micro-nutrients), our digestive system wouldn't be able to absorb all the major nutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrate) from the non-vegetarian diet and it would be useless to take non-veg. Food alone. All the green vegetables, fruits and salads are rich in anti-oxidants which protects us from any infections or diseases, helps in delaying aging signs, maintains glow natural and even prevents cancer as per the study!

Hi there. Mostly according to your symptoms it looks like muscular pain. But chest pain which increases on taking deep breath or on coughing and sneezing warrants a chest x ray as symptoms suggest pleuritic chest pain (pain due to lung conditions) to rule out any lung conditions. But it is certainly not due to heart problem. Please upload your xray if needed and may be I cud help you with that. If severe please see a physician. Take care.

At 16 you should be taught at school about heart health. I am happy to teach you-share with as many people as you can. No burgers or street food as they are loaded with bad fats which block the blood vessels of heart/ brain causing heart attack/ stroke Some good fats are a must , depends on age but 1 spoon of pure ghee/ butter and lots more for growing up kids. high protein diet with simple proteins like milk , curd , eggs & non veg if a person eats some nuts about a katori of peanuts /almonds/ cashews/ wallnuts etc assorted or alone. nuts give good fats & proteins too. simple exercise like walking suits everyone no stress but only result oriented healthy stress which gets us good marks or fruitful results in the job well done no smoking or exposure to pollution. eat healthy, exercise moderately and remain positive.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Hi one of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. Put 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep.

If one is on statin 5 mg and total cholesterol is under 200 and ldl under 100, does one really need to worry too much about one's diet. For example does one have to have zero fat milk instead of toned milk which everyone else in the house is having? This is with at least one hour of exercise daily.

For the already cholesterol crystals deposited in the blood vessels it takes two years to break them and hence two years should be vigorously treated including diet exercise and medicine.

Dear lybrate user, to reduce stress in your life, start some exercise, meditation or pick up any hobby. Try to understand the source of this stress, analyse it and find the best options to get rid of this. Stress might cause overeating, so please learn" stress management techniques" to lose weight, concentrate on food having lesser calories and more of proteins and nutrients. Have plenty of water. Go for regular exercise, yoga, cycling, jogging whatever you like. To have perfect relations with your wife, understand what she needs from you. Encourage her to express her feelings and needs and you also express your feelings and needs to her. Open communication, individual freedom of choice, faith, care and love make a healthy married relationship. Also, please understand that if you want to have an" ideal" life, which will have less stress, no sadness and excellent relationships, then you are sure to be disappointed. Every other person in this world would like to have this. But this is not possible. We all will have some stress in life, we cannot be always happy, there will be sad moments in our life. Our relationships also will never be perfect, because each person in this world is unique and hence it is difficult to get along with other people. Because of all this, it is important to have" rational expectations" from life and even from people around us. If you try to be a perfectionist, you might not be satisfied in life. Take care.

High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
