It would be done under proper anaesthesia so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. Post operatively you need to have cold things like ice cream for better hemostasis and healing.

There are many different types of heart rhythm disturbance and the treatment depends on the type of rhythm disturbance. A ecg and sometimes 24 hr holter monitoring may be required to exactly derive the type of rhythm disturbance. So if you can enlighten me more about the symptoms and can send the ecg, I can help you with the further plan and treatment. Also I reassure you that in most cases a simple medication should take care of the problem.

The common cause for allergy is housdustmite a common allergen in carpets, bedding, blanket, cobwebs. Road dust, pollens from trees, fungi on the dropped leaves, cosmetics and perfumes. Fish, prawn, shrimp are also rich in allergen. Any or many among the above may trigger. Cllosely observe and avoid them if you can. Vacuum your house, beds, curtains, blanket. Avoid woollen thick blankets which house the mite. Use instead the thermal blankets or allergen proof bedclothes which cost about rs 5000/-. Clean your ac equipment with vacuum. Avoid cold substances creams cakes cool drinks chocolate etc. Cool water and juices ok. Nothing straight from refrigerator shelves. Treat well. And prevent well. No shortcuts for it.

Perfect treatment of Asthma allergy.

Asthma, a condition often labeled as incurable and chronic can be cured if treated with Homeopathic medicines. Cases of recent origin and those affecting children have shown encouraging curative results and chronic, advanced cases experience noticeable reduction in the intensity and reoccurrence of the attacks.
If you are heavily dependant on bronchodilators or inhalers Homeopathic treatment will help you fight the precipitating factors (allergen), thereby making you less dependant on those medications.
Conditions such as poor resistance to climatic changes, recurrent colds / sinusitis and atopic dermatitis (skin affection) can be effectively cured during the course of the treatment.

How do we achieve this?


A holistic or a constitutional approach in which a remedy capable of influencing the following factors is prescribed:


Person’s family history (genetic predisposition)
Personal health history (sensitivity to allergens)
Body type (obesity and immune status)
Present status of all physical symptoms (intensity & frequency of the asthma attacks)
Any emotional aggravating factor



This individualistic approach helps in overall improvement of the condition and relieves any other condition associated with asthma.

Follow an ?early-to-bed, early-to-rise? routine. Add a little dried ginger powder to your milk, and fresh ginger to your meals. Try to get some fresh air and sunshine each day. Exercise boosts the immune system but do it in moderation.� Don?ts Avoid smoking. Smoking�always makes asthma worse. Avoid strenuous exercise Avoid sleeping during day time. Avoid exposure to rain, humidity, dust and pollens. Avoid consuming bananas, citrus fruits, ice-cream, cold drinks and fried foods. If you are allergic to specific food, better to avoid it. Last but not least, Take ayurvedic tablets to enhance immunity and cure asthma.

You should get yourself checked up for the cause of cough. There are multiple reasons for cough occurring for 2 weeks, but its always good to know the reason. The precautions you may take is you may use a mask or handkerchief over face and nose when you cough specially in public, so that your infection does not spread to others. You may take steam inhalations to relief cough a bit, avoid taking cold water and going in cold air as they may increase your coughing.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily
