According to ayurved the doshas are vitiated and lodged in the sites of Apana vata, namely Shroni (hip), Basti (bladder, Uru (thighs), Garbhashaya (uterus), Yoni (vagina) etc. Due to imbalanced doshas, body cannot withstand the vital strength and hence it is lost through vaginal route. Ayurvedic Home remedies for white discharge: 1. The inflorescence of Banana is taken (raw) and crushed well. 10- 15 ml of this juice is mixed with honey, sugar candy and taken. This is followed for 10- 15 days. Early morning if taken in empty stomach, instant benefit can be observed. 2. One cup of rice washed (red rice) water is taken and 5- 10 g each of jaggary and cumin seeds are added to this and cooked for 5- 10 minutes. This is taken during noon time .This helps to relieve the debility caused due to Pradara. 3. 5-6 seed marrow (pulp of the seed) of amalaki (amla) fruits are collected and crushed well. This is added to buttermilk and taken twice a day for 14-21 days.

Health Tips For Women

Follow a heart-healthy diet

There's an easy recipe if your goal is to keep away problems like heart disease and strokes.

Eat more fruits and veggies. Choose whole grains. Try brown rice instead of white. Switch to whole wheat pasta. Choose lean proteins like poultry, fish, beans, and legumes. Cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, and saturated fat.

When eating healthy, flexibility often works best, says joyce meng, md, assistant professor at the pat and jim calhoun cardiology center at uconn health. If you like to follow a strict diet plan, go for it. If not, it's ok" find what works for you"

Tricia montgomery, 52, the founder of k9 fit club, knows first-hand how the right diet and lifestyle can help. For her, choosing healthy foods and planning small, frequent meals works well" I don't deny myself anything" she says" I still have dessert -- key lime pie, yum! -- and I love frozen gummy bears, but moderation is key"

Women's health tips for heart, mind, and body

Looking for the path toward a healthier you? it's not hard to find. The journey begins with some simple tweaks to your lifestyle. The right diet, exercise, and stress-relief plan all play a big role.

Exercise every day

The more active you are, the better, meng says. Exercise boosts your heart health, builds muscle and bone strength, and wards off health problems.

Aim for 2 and a half hours of moderate activity, like brisk walking or dancing, every week. If you're ok with vigorous exercise, stick to 1 hour and 15 minutes a week of things like running or playing tennis. Add a couple of days of strength training, too.

If you're busy, try short bursts of activity throughout the day. Walk often. A good target is 10, 000 steps a day. Take the stairs. Park your car far away from your destination.

Montgomery exercises every day, often with her dog. By adding lunges, squats, and stairs to a walk, she turns it into a power workout" I also am a huge pilates fan" she says.

Lose weight

When you shed pounds you'll lower your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.

Aim for a slow, steady drop. Try to lose 1-2 pounds a week by being active and eating better.
It doesn't have to be an hour of intense exercise every day" meng says" any little bit helps"

As you improve, dial up the time and how hard you work out. If you want to lose a lot of weight, try for 300 minutes of exercise a week.

"Eating a healthy diet will go a long way" meng says. Start by cutting sugar, which she says is often hiding in plain sight -- in store-bought items like salad dressing, packaged bread, and nuts. Try to avoid soda and sugar-laced coffee drinks, too.

Cut down your stress

It can take a toll on your health. You probably can't avoid it altogether, but you can find ways to ease the impact. Don't take on too much. Try to set limits with yourself and others. It's ok to say no.

To relieve stress, try:

Deep breathing, meditation, yoga, exercise, healthy eating, talking to a friend, family member, or professional counselor.

Hi, 3yrs gap between two pregnancies is adequate. Longer duration than this leads to sibbling problems. Thus, try at the earliest.

Sir, I got married three years before. We are doing sex with condom protection. When I insert my penis inside vagina, she does not feel anything like that she is complaining. Without condom how we can do sex to give pleasure?

First of all please understand safe unsafe period. First day of mentrual cycle is called day 1st. From ist day to 7 th day safe for intercourse. 8th day to 20 th day is unsafe. And 21 st day start of mc is again safe. So during safe period you can do intercourse without condom. During unsafe period use condom. Now I think you will enjoy more during sex.

Nutritious diet

I would recommend everyone to take all meals on time. Do not skip any meals. Skipping meals is not good, not healthy as well as it does not help you to reduce weight. First thing in the morning start your day with fruits and curry leaves. Take your last meal till 8p. M. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Meat - Red vs White Facts Check

Meat - Red vs White Facts Check

Meat forms an essential part of the daily diet of many people. But it often gets difficult to choose between white meat (chicken or fish) and red meat (beef or pork or mutton) due to the numerous health benefits offered by both. Moreover, both kinds of meat have some health risks as well, which should be kept in mind while consuming either of them.

Read on to find how each type of meat may affect your health, and, which will be more beneficial for your body.

Fat content

People who are more conscious about their weight often tend to choose white meat over red meat because of its lower fat content. For example, fat content in chicken is only about 11%, whereas pork contains about 45% fat. Moreover, the saturated fat content of red meat is about 2.64 times that of white meat.

Protein content

100 gm of chicken breast has about 29.80 gm of protein, whereas the same amount of lamb and pork contain 22.51 gm and 27.55 gm protein respectively. In this case, consumption of white meat will prove to be beneficial as your body can absorb only 74% of the protein in red meat and 80% of the protein in white meat.

Other nutrient content

Red meat is rich in niacin, vitamin b12, riboflavin and thiamine, iron and minerals like zinc and phosphorus. While vitamin b12 aids proper nerve health and ensures that the red blood cells function properly, zinc is responsible for strengthening your immune system.

White meat contains fewer nutrients in comparison to red meat. However, fish contains high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which help in improving lipid profiles and prevent cardiovascular diseases.

Health risks

Consumption of both types of meat has been long associated with increased risk of different diseases. The presence of myoglobin, a type of protein in red meat, is responsible for increasing the risk of certain types of cancer. Also, red meat has been often linked with increased chances of hypertension and heart diseases.

These days, feeding antibiotics to chicken for enlarging their size has become a common practise. So, consumption of this type of meat increases the amount of drug-resistant bacteria in your body and reduces the effect of useful drugs too.

White meat and red meat both have their own health benefits and risks, so including small amounts of both in your diet will prove to be beneficial for your body. Determine the amount of each type of meat you will consume depending on your body's specific requirements.

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

Dear lybrate-user. It is nearly impossible to get pregnant during periods. So relax. However there is nothing 100% in medical science. From next time please use protection like male or female condoms. Intercourse during menses increase your risk of having infections. Please keep that in mind too regards.

I feel sorry for the reports that USG is showing no heart beat. The associated spotting also indicates that this pregnancy may not grow further and you may need to evacuate it. However, a repeat USG after 5-7 more days later may finally give you the verdict whether to wait or get it removed.

I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries about 6 months ago, when my periods became irregular with sudden weight gain. I failed to see a doctor until now. My college doctor prescribed me Diane 35 and Metformin for six months. I want to lose weight as that will relieve the irregular periods. However, I am very skeptical about taking Diane 35, as I have heard about the side effects. And I have never taken a pill before. Can I skip the pills and just take Metformin, while exercising and losing weight? My height is 5'5 and a sudden weight gain of 77 kgs,

It is advisable to make a patient bleed regularly, the diane 35 has been given to regularise your cycles, some of the contraindications to OCPs are 1. Thrombotic tendencies in an individual. 2. Migrain with aura. 3. History of breast cancer in self or family. 4. Smoking a large number of cigarettes per day. My advise would be to keep taking diane 35.

It could be because of either fungal infection or trichomonal infection. You can take FAS 3 kit one dose and apply candid v vaginal tablets at night for a week.

You can take some home remedies like make turmeric and ghee tablet small in pan and take two to three days before menses twice daily you can also drink jeerakashaya on the day of menses it will not cause you amy side effect but will relieve the pain you have to drink from the day bleeding starts, make it at home.
