Fill up on fish, lean meats, poultry, eggs, rice, beans and milk. How they better your beard: B vitamins help your body synthesize the protein you eat so it can be used to build new skin cells and hair. Getting enough B vitamins, says White, also helps reduce stress and prevent hair loss.

Your bmi is 35. 6. You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. If you don' t loose weight soon you will develop diabetes also and need bariatric surgery. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website or send me a personal question.

Omega 3 Supplement and Cholesterol

BSc Home Science, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Omega 3 Supplement and Cholesterol
Omega 3 has tremendous benefits on the heart health. It works as anti - inflammatory. Several studies show that fish oil reduces triglyceride levels. Walnuts, rich in alpha linolenic acid or ala, can convert to omega-3s in the body thus lower total cholesterol and triglycerides in people with high cholesterol levels.

If you're taking a statin drug to lower your cholesterol, fish oil provides added heart benefits. A large japanese study showed 19% fewer heart-related events (like heart attack) in adults taking a fish oil supplement plus a statin drug, compared with those taking only a statin.

Dandruff is a generalised term but under this heading there are many other disorders. It can be psoriasis, dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, pityriasis amentecia etc. It is important to condition the scalp. Oiling is important to reduce dry scales. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week with normal mild shampoo.

I am 20 years old and my tongue has always have red spot that's reason I can not eat chili.please suggest me something for this?

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
Hello, Kindly follow advises given below 1.Gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water 2.You can also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located 3.To prevent infection, rinse your mouth 4.Honey helps retain moisture and prevent dehydration. It also helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth Dab a little honey onto the mouth ulcer or mix in a little turmeric to make a paste that can be applied on the affected area. 5. Tulsi: Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster 6.Dry coconut, coconut oil and coconut water are three products of the coconut tree that are very useful in treating mouth ulcers. Drinking tender coconut water helps to cool the body. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain 7. you could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Consult Physician for further management as you are having these problem for long

All cold ,cough & fever cases are not swine flu cases. There are number of influenza and other viruses which mimic swine flu. From the history you gave you might be suffering with enteric / malarial /other bacterial infections, that is why doctor refused to test for H1N1.If the doctor (not a quack ) is a qualified & experienced you need not worry.
