I am 45 years old. I m suffering from sleep apnea for last two years. I also have DNS in my nose and snoring problems too. Kindly advise me what to do.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

INSOMNIA / SLEEPLESS-NESS , Getting the peace back!

INSOMNIA / SLEEPLESS-NESS , Getting the peace back!

She is looking at the clock repeatedly, feeling more and more frustrated as the time passes as how it is getting late and her effort to sleep is going in vain.

Effort? can anyone put an effort for something which is a self programmed function of the body -mind complex?

Does one put an effort to breathe, make the heart beat or digest food?

Try doing this at home. Try putting a conscious effort to digest your food, be aware of it entering the food pipe and the stomach and then liver metabolizing it. You will end up with indigestion!

Effort is interfering instead with something which is automatic!

So your struggle to sleep is the biggest reason why you are unable to sleep!

Do not try to sleep

One should have courage to wait for the body to tune itself back during a temporary phase of insomnia due to some stressful/emotionally challenging situation.

One's continued stressful approach in life or excessive seeking for stimulation all the time may have finally resulted in the overworked nervous system being so stressed that it now has difficulty in tuning itself off.

There are people who have not slept at all in their entire lives, but there daily activities are not hampered at all, so

Get rid of these conditioning that shortage of sleep will have an ill effect on the body, though difficult, if you let go of this you will be happily surprised to know that this conditioning or belief was creating most of the bodily symptoms!

Chronic insomnia which has developed after a traumatic emotional experience may need a help from a professional like counselor or a hypnotherapist.

Sedatives decrease the brain activity by depressing the c. N. S, making one lethargic /drowsy with reduced mental efficiency and host of other side effects.

The induced sleep is more of non rem type (rem is supposed to be a deeper and moe refreshing phase)
Drug resistance develops soon and the dose gradually increases and so does the dependance and its withdrawal symptoms. And finally one must realize that they are not the cure
So it is better to take them as as a one-off thing, at times of acute distress or urgent need to sleep.

Some other tips which are of secondary help.

1. Do not keep a clock/watch with you in your bed room.
2. Avoid heavy dinner or supper, keep your digestion in check.
3. Do not immediately go to sleep after dinner.
4. Avoid caffeine based drinks esp coffee or if you must have it, take it before evening.
5. Try putting off gadgets like mobiles, t. V, games, magazines etc.

Lastly in a nutshell, do not get overworked if there is reduced or delayed sleep, that will act as a stressor which will prevents sleep, have the courage so as to not to sleep at all. Do not anticipate tomorrows after-effects. Surrender to the intelligence of your body, it will take care of it.

I am a medical student my friend asked me about his problem that he has been masturbation since seven years from the past three months while masturbation he is having some pain in his right leg and sometimes hand he has a fear that he will get nervous weakness and paralysis. Can you help me to treat him.

MBBS
General Physician,
Mastrubation can not lead to paralysis. Due to excessive mastrubation and excessive stroking may give you slight pain in penis, testies. Give him simple analgesics and anxiolytics with some multivitamins.

My mother is surrounded by the disease of clotting in brain, now she feels heavy ness in head what should we do?
Physiotherapy is the solution. Because once clotting occurs it takes time to heal up. Area supplied by the vessel will become necrose and leads to anxiety symptom. Kindly consult neurologist and and give good psychotherapy to mother through the doctor.

Which medicine should I Take? I have bells palsy. My left side eye is closing automatically and left side mouth bending towards left automatically.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
Facial and bell's paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. There can be many reasons for it. It can be due to any infection in nerve, any head injury, tumor, stroke, high bp leading to hemorrhage, any auto immune diease, the most common is ear infection or inflammation directly affecting your facial nerve as it passes through your ear. In physio we have very good treatment plan include: muscle stimulator - stimulate / strength the weak muscles those are paralysed. Facial soft tissue manipulation, facial exercises, pnf, etc so in general I would advice you to go for some treatment if possible visit some neurophysio who will guide you your treatment plan according to your problem. Please follow: 1. Facial exercises like eyebrow raising, drawing, wrinkling, deep breath from nose, smiling, ballon filling, jaw moments etc 2. Using your fingers massage the entire area of massage with applying any cream or talcum. Guidance required from physio. 3. If not that weak then you can apply hot pack also for 10 mins. Precautions: 1. Take eye care. Wash properly. 2. Use goggles when moving out from home. 3. Take mouth care. 4. While drinking or eating take care. 5. Guidance from neurophysio for life styl modifications. 6. If speech disturbed take opinion from speech therapist. Please consult me if you do not understand any point. Get well soon. Take care.

My father is paralysed and he is using leofin 10 for longer time but we don't see any improvement is there any alternative medicine for this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
If your father already taking medicine for paralysis prescribed by any other physician. Discuss him about your father's situation in follow-up. Paralysis is a chronic conditions which take long time to treat completely. So, wait for some time. Give healthy diet to your father. Advice him do exercise which are helpful for recovery of paralysis.

What is difference paralysis & stroke. What is remedy. How to prevent. Can yoga supply sufficient blood to Brain. Why smoking also affects. Does india have stem cell treatment & Can it reverse a stroke.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
There are two types of stroke. Ischemic stroke is similar to a heart attack, except it occurs in the blood vessels of the brain. Clots can form in the brain's blood vessels, in blood vessels leading to the brain, or even in blood vessels elsewhere in the body and then travel to the brain. These clots block blood flow to the brain's cells. Ischemic stroke can also occur when too much plaque (fatty deposits and cholesterol) clogs the brain's blood vessels. About 80% of all strokes are ischemic. Hemorrhagic strokes occur when a blood vessel in the brain breaks or ruptures. The result is blood seeping into the brain tissue, causing damage to brain cells. The most common causes of hemorrhagic stroke are high blood pressure and brain aneurysms. An aneurysm is a weakness or thinness in the blood vessel wall. Paralysis is a loss of muscle function in part of your body. It can be temporary or permanent. The most common causes are stroke, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis. Stem cell therapy is still in research stage
