-it will take long time to overcome your vit d deficiency as it affects your whole body joints and muscles go weak. To increase or maintain body strength do exercises. - you can consult physiotherapist for full body assesment.- whats reason for swelling, you had not mentioned inyour question, you can do contrast bath- apply hand towel dipped on hot water and do squuez it before applying on affected area .after it cools down immediately apply another hand towel dipped in cold water having ice. Repeat this for 10 min for 2- 3 times daily. This will decrease your swelling. - if still your pain remains same fix appoinmtment with physio, they will apply ultrasound to affected area.

Dear Lybrateuser, - At your age your chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habit - avoid spicy, fried & junk foods, restrict intake of tea/ coffee to 1-2 cups per day, also avoid alcohol & tobacco if you take - do not skip meals, have meals on time, chew your food well, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, do not lye down for about an hour after meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - have 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion - do regular exercise, play games, also do yoga, deep breathing & meditation for 10-15 min daily morning - take syrup Gelucil, 2 teaspoonful three times a day half an hour after meals.

If artificial sweeteners contain much more sugar, how come that doctors are recommending them to diabetic patients?

If artificial sweeteners contain much more sugar, how come that doctors are recommending them to diabetic patients?
No sensible doctors do that ;as artificial sweeteners increases insulin resistance it might worsen your glycemic control too. So regular use never endorsed. There is immense data on this. And a recent study published in nature on sweeteners whether caloric or noncaloric should not routinely be taken .it also alters gut microbiome (gud bacteria replaced with bad ones)

Solution comprising some more things to do its not more in number just three or four. You need to improve your diet, need to do daily mild exercise & yoga, need to take ayurvedic remedies.

And seee to ayurvedic doctor for for medicines you will recover maximum around two months.

5 Ways to Make Your Lovemaking Session More Fun

Sex is an act that is supposed to leave you satisfied and happy, but sometimes that’s not the case. This can be due pain or discomfort, stress or low confidence levels. However, by adopting a few simple ways you can enjoy a healthier and a much more satisfying love-making session.

1. Talk between the sheets: This is very important. Your partner wouldn’t know what you’re in the mood of until and unless you tell them. Nobody can read minds. Know each other erogenous zones to know what turns your partner on. When your partner does something you like, or does something you don’t like, you should let them know in order to derive maximum pleasure during sex.

2. Make use of the correct lubricant: This is applicable for women: just as wetness is a part of sex, so is dryness no matter if you’re in the mood or not. Women hardly ever get the 20 minutes of foreplay they need to be properly lubricated before sex. Sometimes factors like childbirth, breastfeeding or menopause can aggravate this situation. So in such cases it is best to use a liquid lubricant that doesn’t cause allergy to you and your partner, and can make sex a smooth and pleasurable activity. Avoid baby oil or body lotions if you’re using a latex condom.

3. Check with your doctor for itching/ burning sensations: If you’re suffering from itching or burning sensations in your privates, then chances are you might be suffering from an infection. If it causes problem in your sex life, then a doctor should be immediately consulted. Sometimes it may just be an allergy to latex or a lubricant. In such cases try switching to a different type of condom and/or lubricant.

4. Explore different things together: A shift in position or a new sex activity can make sex highly enjoyable and exciting, adding that zing that was missing in your sex life. Indulge in role playing, sex toys or even light bondage if you like to spice things up in the bed. Also, keep shifting left, right, up and down in the same sex position to heighten pleasure.

5. Get enough sleep: Getting your fix of 8 hours of sleep is very important for a healthy love making session. Lack of sleep can leave you tired and not in the mood of any sort of sexual activity. It can even lower libido in men and in extreme cases it can lead to sexual dysfunction as well. So rest well to enjoy your private time with your partner.

How To Avoid Heartburn/Acidity/GERD?

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
How To Avoid Heartburn/Acidity/GERD?

Heartburn results from a backup of acid-containing stomach contents into your food-pipe.

Here are tips for prevention:

Eat smaller meals

  Too much food at one time expands your stomach and puts pressure on a band of muscle that helps keep food and acid from backing up into your food pipe (oesophagus).

Avoid alcohol, fatty foods, chocolate, spearmint and peppermint

  These foods can relax your lower oesophageal sphincter and promote upward flow of stomach contents.

Don’t eat before sleeping

  Wait two to three hours after eating before lying down. This allows enough time for the stomach to empty and increased stomach acid to taper off.

Stop smoking

  The nicotine from cigarettes can relax your lower oesophageal sphincter, allowing acid to flow back into your oesophagus.

Lose excess weight

  Lose excess weight if you’re overweight. This will help reduce the pressure your abdomen puts on your stomach when you’re lying down.

Wear loose clothes

  A tight belt or waistband can put pressure on your stomach and push acid into your oesophagus, causing discomfort.

Elevate the head of your bed

  Raise the head of your bed four to six inches. This helps keep stomach acid in your stomach, where it belongs.

All About Artificial Sweeteners

All About Artificial Sweeteners

If you like your food sweet, but worry about calories at the same time, chances are you are leaning towards artificial sweeteners to solve your dilemma. The market is flooded with artificial sweeteners, so how do you choose one? And what are their pros and cons?

Besides weight control, artificial sweeteners are also used by people suffering from diabetes. But there is a debate as to how safe artificial sweeteners are, for normal people and diabetics alike.

You get multiple choices from aspartame to sucralose, present in stores. However, it is better to be educated about their benefits and disadvantages.

The pros and cons of most popular sweeteners are as follows:

1. Saccharin: This sugar substitute has been in the market for the longest.
Pros:
a) It has zero calories
b) It does not elevate the levels of blood sugar
c) 200-700 times sweeter than normal sugar
Cons:
a) It is a possible carcinogen (substances that cause cancer)
b) There is also the danger of saccharin acting as an allergen (substances that cause allergy)

2. Aspartame: It is the most commonly used sugar substitute. Almost all the food items that boast of being sugar-free have aspartame in them.
Pros:
a) 160-220 times sweeter than common sugar
b) A small amount goes a long way, so calorie intake is lesser
Cons:
a) Headaches, depression and cancer have been linked to aspartame use
b) Increased hunger

3. Sucralose: This sugar substitute is derived from sugar itself. It is gradually becoming the most popularly used sweetener as it is found in almost all cooked or baked foods.
Pros:
a) It is heat resistant, so it is used liberally in cooking and baking
b) It has very few calories
Cons:
a) Weight gain is still possible
b) It has chlorine in it, which is a carcinogen

4. Neotame: This is a new invention and is chemically related to aspartame.
Pros:
a) 7000 -13000 times sweeter than common sugar with zero calories
b) Apparently, it is safe for consumption for teens, children and even for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
Cons:
a) There isn't enough research done on Neotame, therefore very little is known about it
b) Since its chemical composition is closer to aspartame, there is much controversy about "neotame" affecting people the same way as aspartame
