Older people ‘should exercise to build muscle even into their 80s’

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Older people ‘should exercise to build muscle even into their 80s’

Older people should exercise to build their muscles even into their eighties, according to a review which suggests it will help them with everyday tasks.

Climbing the stairs, housework, walking and even washing was made easier if elderly people worked out 2 or 3 times a week, said Chiung–ju Liu of the Department of Occupational Therapy at Indiana University.

People lose muscle as they age, which can make daily chores more difficult. Working out by using small weights or elastic bands can help to rebuild these muscles.

By "walking well", however, you power yourself around all day using muscles in your bottom, midriff and the backs of your thighs. This brings dramatic, sustainable results.

In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men (1 mg/dL=59.48 µmol/L), and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L) As you are normal the swelling can be due to sprain or detailed check up is needed.

You seem to be having cervicogenic headache. The cause of headache is some disease process affecting the neck (cervical spine). It can be due. 1. Intervertebral disc prolapse in cervical spine. 2. Neck muscle strain. 3. Occipital neuralgia: entrapment of nerves at back of head. Follow these tips to get relief; 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen round the clock for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply warm water bag on neck if you find it soothing. 3. Do neck stretching exercises after pain is relieved. 4. Maintain good posture during work or reading to relieve neck strain. Avoid reading or computer work with neck bent. Keep text books at eye level. If problem is persistent you need to consult again.

If the medications are taken under the observation of the doctor who is vigilant and takes into consideration all the health details and family history then there is no harm. Certain tests and investigations needs to be done which your doctor will advise to rule out any problem. At the same time you can also try Homeopathy which is safe in the long run and does not cause any side effects. Its tries to correct the ailment in a holistic manner and stimulates natural healing. You can contact me for a detailed consultation. Till then you should focus on a very healthy lifestyle with 1 hour of yoga and pranayam.

I am 57 year old and under went bypass surgery ten years back. I am fit and fine but I am suffering from gas trouble. After meal or before meal I feel heavy in my stomach and and feel suffocation. Though I can breath easily but feel uneasy. Please advice.

Are you walking or exercising? are your bowels clear? if your stomach feels heavy before meals, why then are you eating? you are overloading your system - don' t eat if you are already feeling heavy. In any case start having several small meals, and miss out if you are not hungry. There is no reason to stuff yourself just because it is habit or convention. Remember at 57 your system has slowed down and you have to alter your eating habit to match this. Contact for homeopathic support.

Hello testosterone is a male sex hormone that affects more than just sex drive. The hormone is also responsible for bone and muscle health, sperm production, and hair growth. You can lose testosterone as you age, as well as from chronic illnesses. 1. Vitamin d is a nutrient that helps the body absorb calcium. It's important for the health of bones, the immune system, and many other body functions. It's also linked to longer life and testosterone production. 2. Tuna =is rich in vitamin d. It's also a heart-healthy, protein-rich food that's low in calories. Whether you choose canned or fresh, eating this fish can be a natural way of boosting testosterone. 3. Oysters=zinc is an essential nutrient during puberty, and its effects can keep male hormones in check throughout adulthood. Men who have low t benefit from taking zinc if they also have zinc deficiencies. Oysters are high sources of the mineral zinc, which may help low t. 4. The mineral zinc is important for testosterone production, and supplementing your diet for as little as six weeks has been shown to cause a marked improvement in testosterone among men with low levels. 5. Low fat milk 6. Serving of crab or lobster may do your testosterone levels some good. 7. White, kidney, and black beans are all considered sources ofvitamin d and zinc. 8. Lose weight 9. Limit your sugar from diet= testosterone levels decrease after you eat sugar, which is likely because the sugar leads to a high insulin level, another factor leading to low testosterone. 10. Boost your intake of branch chain amino acids (bcaa) from foods like whey protein. Constitutional homeopathic medicine will give best result. If you want better result consult privately.
