Homeopathy has an effective and promising treatment in pre mature ejaculation. Homeopathic treatment increases the emision and ejaculation time of semen during sexual act. Here are the best ways on how to quit masturbation. Remove all the sources that trigger the urge to perform the act of masturbation such as block the websites which allows access to pornographic content. Some toys which trigger the body sexually to perform masturbation must be removed. Try to avoid staying up until late night. Avoid taking hot showers which may also trigger the urge to perform masturbation. Getting socially active is one of the important factors for controlling and quitting masturbation, as living alone promotes the activity of masturbation especially if a person is heartbroken with his relationship. Getting in a social group fills up the leisure time so that the person can optimally control such thoughts. One of the most important things is to try not to touch the intimate part of the body. To ensure this, spend more time in good company and not alone. If any other friend is also experiencing the issues, then it is always a good idea to quit the relationship or friendship. Masturbation also results due to excessive body stress or tension. Exercising regularly helps in relieving the body stress and tension. It is recommended to increase or double the exercise when a person feels depressed or stressed. Try to make the body to adapt abstinence. Initially try not to perform masturbation for a day, then gradually moves to days then weeks. A homoepath can help in finding if there are some underlying causes that entice you to perform masturbation so regularly. If there is some cause then appropriate treatment can be sought. If you would like to consultme you can click on consult option for homoepathic treatment.

Dear, the most common causes of weakness are * anemia * metabolic disorder (diabetes, hypothyroidism) * breathing problems (asthma, sinusitis) *digestion problems (diarrhea, gestric ulcers) * cervical spondylosis first check out your haemoglobin (hb), if your hb is low, then eat a lot of green vehetables and iron rich foods like apple, guava, sapotas (cheeku, beet root and oranges. Takeiron suppliments for increase in hb. If your hb level is normal then your all parts of body get adequate level of oxygen. 2. Take deep breaths atleast for 10-15 minutes twice a day. 3. Check out the blood sugar fasting in every 6 months. If blood sugar level, then take proper medicines for high sugar level. 4. In thyroid disorder, there is a feeling of weakness and tiredness. Check out your thyroid profile, if you feel tired even after the proper deit and medicines and take treatment. 5. In the morning, do medication regulary, do pranayam atleast for 5 -10 minute. It will make your hormones level normal.

One of the common doubt my diabetic people ask me about drinking whole milk or low fat milk

One of the common doubt my diabetic people ask me about drinking whole milk or low fat milk... let me clear the doubt in scientific way..

In fact, there are good reasons to believe that whole milk, full-fat yogurt, cream, and high-fat cheeses may be better for you than their low-fat alternatives.

Reason #1:  Saturated fat is not harmful to your health

Reason #2:  Low-fat and non-fat dairy products are higher in casein

Casein is a very sticky protein in milk that is quite difficult for humans to digest.  Milk proteins are designed to nourish baby cows, who are outfitted with a special enzyme (rennet) that can break apart casein. Humans do not make rennet, which is one of the reasons why dairy products can cause constipation and other digestive problems.

Reason #3:  Low-fat and non-fat dairy products are higher in whey

Whey proteins raise blood insulin levels just as much as pure sugar does.  Even though lactose, the sugar that naturally occurs in milk, has a low “glycemic index” and therefore does not raise blood sugar very much, whey proteins trigger big insulin spikes in body and destabilize blood sugar and hormone levels, lead to carbohydrate cravings, fatigue, mood swings, and obesity.

Reason 4:  High-fat dairy products contain less protein

This means that people who have dairy protein sensitivities may tolerate them better.  People who have trouble with dairy foods are almost always reacting either to milk carbohydrate (lactose intolerance) or milk proteins (dairy allergy and sensitivity), not to dairy fat. This is why many dairy-sensitive individuals are able to eat butter and heavy cream, which are extremely low in protein.

Reason #5:  High-fat dairy products taste better

They improve the flavor, digestibility, and absorption of foods and are more satisfying, therefore you may find yourself naturally eating less.

Bottom line:  The lower the fat content, the higher the protein content

People who consume the most high-fat dairy products, have a 23-percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who have one serving or less but there was no association between intake of low-fat dairy products and lowered type 2 diabetes risk.

Keep in mind that, you choose unsweetened varieties, since sugar and other refined carbohydrates raise insulin levels and disturbs blood sugar levels.
And MODERATION is the key for all the food .

Thank you for reading and i Hope it has helped you.

56% Have Poor Vitamin Status After 10 Years Gluten-Free

A 2002 study in the of Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics looked at the vitamin status of 30 adults with Celiac Disease showing ?biopsy-proven remission,? after following a gluten-free diet for 8-12 years. They found that 56% had poor vitamin status, suggesting that proper nutrient uptake is not occurring. The authors concluded that:
?It is generally assumed that coeliac patients adhering to a strict gluten-free diet for years will consume a diet that is nutritionally adequate. This is supported by the demonstration of a normal bone mineral density up to 10 years of dietary treatment. Our results may indicate otherwise. We found signs indicative of a poor vitamin status in 56% of treated adult coeliac patients.?
Even after following the conventional Celiac prescription for 10 years, 56% still showed signs of poor nutrient uptake ? meaning their digestive system still isn?t working like it?s designed to.
That means after 10 years of being gluten-free, HALF of all Celiacs are likely starving for the critical nutrients required for health and longevity. It?s no wonder we have a 77X increased risk for lymphoma.
The Gluten-Free Diet Doesn?t Fix Leaky Gut
Earlier in this series, we discovered that gliadin initiates leaky gut by increasing the zonulin protein in people with Celiac Disease. And later, we learned that fixing leaky gut is absolutely essential to reversing the damage from Celiac Disease?
But the gluten-free diet doesn?t fix leaky gut?
As it turns out, when Celiac Disease patients follow a strict gluten-free diet, their zonulin levels do fall (which is good). But research shows that they still have elevated levels of zonulin compared to non-Celiacs. And when the zonulin levels are still high? the Tight Junctions can?t restore normal function and the leaky gut remains.
Chris Masterjohn found the same thing reviewing a study by researcher Allessio Fasano.
Remarkably, they found that celiacs produce 30 times as much zonulin as non-celiacs, even though the non-celiacs were not eating gluten-free diets while the celiacs had been off gluten for over two years!

Asparagus Roots The white musli or dried roots of asparagus are known to be an aphrodisiac and will help in getting rid of erectile dysfunction easily. ? Add 15 grams of dried roots of asparagus to a cup of milk. ? Boil this milk and consume it when it is lukewarm. ? Repeat this process twice a day to see satisfactory results. A healthy lifestyle that keeps a person active with proper food and adequate exercise help in improving one?s sex power. Diet plays a big role in one?s sex life. Healthier the person better is the sex life. Sex life reflects the lifestyle one leads. Do pranayama(in yoga) everyday for excellent sexual stamina. Aphrodite was the goddess who prepared the potions for her lovers and hence the stimulating elixirs are named after this beautiful goddess. The aphrodisiacs are Sun, fresh and healthy atmosphere. You must take adequate rest so that your body can perform the work better. The Sun kills bacteria of the environment and the fresh air can enhance your mood. You must also keep away from depressive environment if you want to enjoy sexual pleasures. Affection for the person will give you boosting energy and you also must take vitamins for improvement in the energy level. Vitamin B is indispensable for taking off fatigue and adding zest to your life. ? Avocados ? Not only are avocados known as fruits that increase the brain levels, but they are now being touted as love drugs. ? Celery ?Eating celeries may be the last thing you would think of to boost the libido, but research goes to show that it increases the pheromone levels in the sweat of a person and makes the males more attractive to the females. Ayurvedic medicenes ? Ashwagandha (withania somnifera) ? Kaunch beej (cowhage) ? Ras sindoor (red sulphide of mercury) For further assistance you can concern me privately.

There is nothing like'operations of testosterone due to vein dilusis' I presume you mean'varicocele' it appears to be due to stress / anxiety, so relax and do exercise. However to exclude other cause you need to do some blood tests like sugar and hormones. Stop smoking if you smoke. Check bp. If you are taking any medicine or nutritional supplement on regular basis then it may be due to side effect of that.
