It is a well known fact that a healthy and satisfying sex life is very important for a healthy relationship. It is very important to take proper care of the health maintenance. Sexual disorders are disturbances in the sexual response like premature ejaculation, impotence, low sperm count, male orgasmic dysfunction and also diminished sexual desire. Homeopathy is actually the great resource to giveenough support removing these problems form the root level. At first it is very important to find out the appropriate symptoms. Then remove that specific reason. Homeopathic remedies help to increase enough blood supply to the specific organ and make the nerve strong. Identifying the main reason if one can apply the specific homeopathic remedy he can easily regain the lost vigor. In homeopathy there are enough remedies to solve any kind of male problems and improve sexual stability along with intercourse time. Some people suffer from micro penis problem. Remember that the size or length of the male organ is not same to all. It may vary from person to person. That is not the problem. If all the functions of male organ work normally then The average size of penis is 5.54 inches (14.07 cm) length and 3.11 inches (7.9 cm) girth are enough to perform a successful sexual intercourse. When the length of the erect organ is below 4.5 or 5 inches then we call it micro penis. Some reasons are responsible for this problem such hormone, masturbation habit from childhood, infection in the prostate gland etc are very common reasons. Homeopathic remedies are very helpful to increase the size or length of the male organ and make it strong. Homeopath can give good solution of that problem using proper homeopathic remedies consult for homoeopathic treatment.

For how many hours a normal man should sleep. If he is sleeping more or less. What to be done to take it in normal range?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Dear , the sleep requirement varies from individual to individual, for an average adult it should be 7.5-8 hrs but many people sleep for a shorter duration and are fresh and energetic. Along with the duration of the sleep, the quality of sleep is also very important. Snoring, sleep apnea, some medications, alcohol, diabetes, stress etc disturb the sleep quality. Once these disorders are addressed normal sleep pattern will emerge. Best of luck.

I will not get sleeping well and night shift job. Please help me out what are the measures to have a good sleep.
Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine - try to get at least 6 to 7 hours of uninteruppted sleep at night time Go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every Night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background 'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

If not much loss of Shukra, you may get yourself examined for common lab tests such as sugar, ESR, Hb and send BP reading.

Why I remain always hot in day and night. I can not stop my sexual need. How can I control.

Why I remain always hot in day and night. I can not stop my sexual need. How can I control.
How to Control Your Sex Drive: Some boys and men might wish to control their sex drive so that they can focus on studies and less worldly pursuits. Other individuals find their overactive sex drive is out of sync with their partner's sex drive or if they have no partner, a high sex drive might only result in frustration. You can control your libido with some simple lifestyle changes. A high sex drive is not necessarily a bad impulse, if you can find a way to make it work in your life. 1.Talk to your doctor about your sex drive. An unusually high sex drive, also known as hypersexuality or nymphomania, might be the sign of a serious medical condition, such as bipolar disorder or adrenal cancer. If your doctor suspects you have a sex addiction, she might refer you to a psychologist or therapist for treatment. Medications are also available to reduce your libido. 2.Consider your reasons for wanting to lower your sex drive. If you want to control your libido for religious reasons, talk to your spiritual adviser for assistance. Don't be embarrassed because he has likely dealt with the issue before. If you are in a relationship, talk frankly with your partner about mutual desire or sexual expectations. 3.Avoid sexual stimulation. Do not view pornography or read explicit books. Pay attention to your thoughts to see whether there are specific objects, settings or people that evoke a sexual response in you, and avoid them as much as possible. 4.Engage your body in sports, exercise or yoga. Keep your body busy and active so that you don't feel physically frustrated from not having sex. 5.Do not masturbate. If you find yourself becoming aroused, think of nonsexual images, and try to engage yourself in some other activity until the feeling passes. 6.Pursue nonsexual relationships with people. Consider traveling or taking up a new hobby together to bond with your partner in different ways. Join clubs or volunteer. You can still have satisfying relationships without having sex. 7.Abstain from alcohol or drugs, especially if you feel they lower your inhibitions and cause you do something you might regret later.
