I am suffering from leukorrhea more often and I have back pain also is it related to my diet?

I am suffering from leukorrhea more often and I have back pain also is it related to my diet?
Hello lybrate user, - back pain is common in leucorrhea - leucorrhea might bcz of diet impairment or harmon related. - you need to correct it asap. - prepare decoction out of ajwain and ginger add a pinch of turmeric and honey to it and have it before food twice daily - avoid heavy foods in the night. - make sure you are getting register cycles - excess of sleep/ day sleep will trigger this problem. - for now take pushyanuga churna with warm water twice daily after food. - leuco-r cap 2-0-2 after food. Report after 15days. Thank you.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help in Curing it?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Chitiradurga
Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help in Curing it?

Muscular dystrophy is a rare disorder which results in the atrophy or degeneration of muscles. This happens as the proteins required by the body to build and maintain muscles are not produced within the body in a normal manner. Muscular dystrophy mostly affects boys and develops in early adolescence although it can affect people much younger or much later in life. Ayurveda has some great treatments which can allay the symptoms and provide relief to patients afflicted with this disease.

Treatment for Muscle dystrophy in Ayurveda
With a degenerative disease like Muscle dystrophy, simple medication won’t be able to cure or relieve symptoms. Even with conventional medicines muscle dystrophy can’t be cured, but the symptoms can be reduced. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to correcting the problems which include oral medications, food as well as exercises in the form of yoga.

Herbs

Herbs are a great way to put certain minerals within the body, which can help lessen the pain and symptoms. Some of the herbs which have been known to be effective in reducing pain and also helping with movement and day to day activities may include:

  1. Triphala
  2. Mansrohini
  3. Nirgundi
  4. Guduchi
  5. Ashwagandha and many others

However, there are no medications in readymade proportions which are specifically designed and prescribed according to the diagnosis of the patient. It also needs to be complemented with a proper diet also known as Mamsagni Rasayana.

Diet or Mamsagni Rasayana

This is a very tailored diet and supplement approach to create and put the required nutrients which will slow down the decay of muscles within the body and will also help build new muscle to slow down decay. These will include extracts from herbs which will be made into chemicals and then used to make dietary supplements.

Yoga and specialized physiotherapy exercises

Yogic postures combined with certain walking and standing postures performed over time can also help reduce the symptoms and lessen the rate of decay. Some of the exercises that are helpful for various activities are:

  1. Standing and movements: Padahastasana, Tad asana, Trikonasana, Vakrasana
  2. Sitting: Paschimottanasa, Vakrasana, Shashankasana
  3. To help with breathing: Ardha Shalabhasana, Pranayama, Bhramri Pranayama

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

What is the cure for carpel tunnel syndrome and tendon release pain on the hand and wrist respectively.

COMT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Surat
We have carpal tunnel in our wrist joint through which median nerve is passed. Whenever there is pressure on median nerve that is passing through this tunnel, it started paining. Due to which you may feel pain (over thumb index and middle finger), numbness, burning sensation, swelling, weaknes, unable to work or do task etc. These are the common complain we have seen in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. There are n number of causes - nerve compression, hormonal disorder commonly in post menapausal females, injury to the hand etc being a physio I would like to recommend you to take proper treatment as we have several modalities which will cure you from this pain like ultrasonic therapy, tens etc. Along with it we have some joint mobilisation techniques, soft tissue manipulation, neural stretch etc to completely cure the pain. However at home I would advice you to take some precautions and treatment to give you some relief: 1. Avoid flexion, extenstion of wrist joint frequently. 2. Hand should be straight while sleeping, use night splint if required. 3. While working make sure your hand and wrist posture should be correct. 4. Avoid any repetative movements like in washing clothes, prolonged writing etc if required take breaks in between. 5. Perform regular exercises to prevent further injury. 6. Take precautions from winter as in winter our hands become cold which may exaggerate your pain. 7. Use soft stuffs while doing tasks like use soft foam while washing utensils, use soft ball pen while prolong writing, while opening cuboard do not put high pressure do it gently and softly while holding the keys etc. There are many other precautions that need to be taken care as per your need. Home remedies: 1. Use of hot and cold pack alternatively. Apply with the ration of 3: 2 which means 3 min ice then 2 min heat. Ice has very good results in relieving pain than heat so combination of both gives you complete relax. As ice reduces pain and heat stimulates blood flow around the affected area. Twice or thrice a day. 2. Once done with hot cold packs relax your wrist for 3-4 seconds. If sever pain is there then avoid doing any exercise. Once pain reduces or minimal you can go for flexibilty exercises of wrist joint. A) rotate your wrist up down side to side in all direction slowly. B) stretch your finger of affected hand using your another hand. Keep a stretch hold for 5 sec and then relax. Perform 15 times. C) stretch your thumb using your unaffected hand. D) a soft smiley rubber ball can also be used. Squeeze it and then release. E) to strengthen you can use some weight in your hand and perform wrist moments up down or side ways. This should be done when there is no pain or very minimal pain at later stage. The above treatment will give pain relief and discomfort. If possible please contact any physio who will study your daily routine, symptoms, degree of pain etc and accordingly will give you the best treatment plan. Along with it give you our pain relieving modalities. Good luck and get well soon.

Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Back stretching- lie flat, pull one of the knee forward to chest, hold for 3 seconds, then bring the other knee forward to the chest and again hold for 3 seconds. Then pull both knees towards the chest and hold for 3 seconds. Repeat 10 times each exercise twice a day.
