Physiotherapist,
Before starting out for a walk, relax and take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air which will move them into their most efficient position. After you exhale, maintain the chest in this position with shoulders down and slightly back throughout the walk.

You want to avoid pregnancy. Do sex 5 days before start of bleeding and 5 days after end of bleeding. The chances are very less during this period.

My periods is not coming.

BHMS
Homeopath,
My periods is not coming.
Hello, Is this happening for the first time? Are you married/ sexually active (if yes, get your pregnancy test done after 1 week of expected date of menses)? What tis the normal menstrual cycle in your case? Apart from pregnancy, nutritional deficiencies and excessive stress/ tension can also lead to missed menses. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month.

Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. So it is completely safe to sex during pregnancy. But during first trimester sometimes there is risk of miscarriage because of intercourse and excessive body movement so try to avoid sex during first trimester.

SAFE WATER DRINKING- FACTS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

1. Lead in drinking water is absorbed more completely than lead in food

2. It account for more than 50 percent of the lead that is ingested by children

3. Municipal water supplies are controlled and regulated to prevent contamination at the source

4. However, once the water reaches the home, it is rarely regulated, tested, or treated.

5. EPA action level for lead in water is 15 parts per billion (ppb).

6. Most lead-contamination of household water is caused by copper plumbing that is joined with lead solder

7. Lead pipes may contribute to lead-contamination, but lead plumbing usually is old enough to have its inner surface coated with mineral deposits, which prevent leaching of lead into the water supply.

8. Other potential sources for lead contamination include storage cisterns, sources of water that are outside the municipal water districts, and aging water coolers and water heaters, particularly in areas where the water has a relatively low pH

9. Acidity and elevated temperature increase the ability of the water to leach lead from the solder or pipes, as does standing in the pipes for extended periods of time (eg, overnight).

10. The ability of home water filters or purifiers to remove lead depends upon the type of filter. Ion-exchange, reverse-osmosis filters, and distillation are effective in removing lead, but the most commonly available home filters (glass fiber and carbon) usually include packaging material that specifies that they do not efficiently remove heavy metals.Water to be used for cooking or drinking should come from the cold tap because hot water is more able to leach lead from the pipes. In addition, the water should be run for some time before it is collected; this flushes the water that has a higher lead content (caused by standing in the pipes) down the drain

Did your boyfriend ejected inside your vagina? if yes, firstly get your pregnancy tested? if he did not ejected inn. Then no chance of pregnancy at all. Secondly for your lack of energy and above listed problem follow this natural remedy: there are 2 kinds of tulsi leaves we come across. One is" ram tulsi" (which is lighter in shade) and the other one is" shyam tulsi" (which is darker in shade) you have to consume 10-15 leaves of" shyam tulsi" which means the leaves with darker shade. Take 10 to 15 leaves of shyam tulsi and grind it into a paste. Boil this paste in 200 ml of water until the water comes down to the level of 100 ml. Consume this water swallowing (never chew tulsi) the leave remains daily in 3 installments without break. I guarantee you that you will feel better instantly and will get a permanent cure in some days. Besides natural remedies doesn't even have any side effects along with them. Besides keep yourself warm and away from cold/heat.

Proper positioning for breastfeeding

Proper positioning for breastfeeding
It is very important to position your baby well while breastfeeding. Not only would it ensure that the baby gets sufficient milk for the efforts he/she makes in suckling, it would ensure that you do not suffer from pain and sore/cracked nipples, and that your baby wouldn't get frustrated and refuse to breastfeed.

Why Having a Hobby is Good For You?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Why Having a Hobby is Good For You?

Pursuing a hobby can help you to ward off diseases while keeping your mind and body fresh and active. What's more, hobbies come with several health benefits too, ranging from lowering of blood pressure and control over cortisol production ( a hormone that causes stress) to improvements in your weight and BMI.

4 Amazing health benefits that you can derive from pursuing your favourite hobbies are:

1. Strengthening of your immune system - 
Hobbies that augment your activity levels like basketball, golf or bike riding are extremely beneficial for improving your immune system, thereby enhancing the overall quality of your life. A strong immune system is essential as it makes you less prone to chronic diseases like diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.

2. Improving your memory - Another health benefit of having hobbies is that they bring about an improvement in your memory and aid in enhancing your problem-solving abilities. A research conducted by the University of Texas on the impact that hobby has on the brain reveals the fact that the picking up of a new hobby can prevent memory loss. Here's how - the challenge to learn a new skill causes you to focus all of your mental abilities on the task at hand, leading to a sharpening of your memory, while preventing memory loss. By helping you to maintain an active brain, the act of picking up a new hobby, therefore, brings about a delay of cognitive aging by a few years.

3. Cutting down on stress - By indulging in a hobby like cooking, baking or gardening, you get an effective outlet to release all your stress. Being a non-work activity, your mind gets another area of focus, one which you can enjoy. Furthermore, when you put your whole mind to it, your stress and worries seem to wither away.

Moreover, such hobbies that require you to physically exert yourself, albeit in a limited manner, also bring down your stress levels as they produce chemical changes in your body.

4. Improving sleep - Having a hobby also has a positive impact on sleep. The pursuit of active hobbies in the earlier part of the day can lead you to have a very restful sleep. Likewise, engaging in the intellectual activity of reading before going to bed can help you to sleep better.

Apart from giving you tremendous enjoyment, a hobby can also bring many health benefits. So, pursue your hobbies actively despite the busy lifestyle you follow.
