A friend of mine was healthy and problem free. He had an argument with someone very close to his heart and he is possessive about. My friend is very sensitive about that person and the person means a lot to him. Now after the argument my friend started sweating, had vomiting and passed 2-3 stools. I am really worried about him since distance does not permit me to go and see him. Is it some sign of cardiac arrest or something?

As details of age and medical background are not available, it is difficult to make an assumption. However to be on the safer side, get an ECG done. It will reduce your fears once it turns out to be normal. It is likely that the sweating, vomiting and passing of stools was an acute reaction to the stressful situation. Look for any other signs of infection (fever, loose motions, abdominal pain, etc) and consult a physician if required. If all of the above is normal, consider approaching a psychiatrist or counselor who will be able to help your friend cope with such situations.

Dear Lybrateuser, -To shape up your chest & build muscles you have to do aerobic exercises like jogging, swimming for 30-40 min, do moderate weight lifting at least two times a week, do push ups, pull ups on alternate days -include protein rich foods in your diet like eggs, milk & milk products like cheese, paneer, yogurt, butter milk, soyabeans & soya products, non-veg like seafood, chicken, legumes, peas, nuts like almonds, walnuts, pistachios, peanuts -combine carbohydrates with the above mentioned proteins, also can have a protein snack in between meals like yogurt, chicken sandwich, sprouts, nuts.

4 Ways to Maintain Your Cardiovascular Health

4 Ways to Maintain Your Cardiovascular Health

Following a healthy lifestyle that is armed with a well-regulated diet is the most important aspect of combating your cardio-vascular disease. If you think that it is going to be very difficult to achieve, then you will be happy to know that the reality is quite the opposite. You can achieve your goals by following short and simple steps that would help you to reap long-term benefits for protecting your cardio-vascular health.

  1. Try to use the calories consumed: It is very important to know how many calories you are consuming in a span of 24 hours. The calorie and nutritional information given on the food levels are normally based on the 2000 calorie diet. But it is crucial to know that your individual calorie requirement is dependent on numerous factors, including your age, gender as well as level of physical activities. When you are aiming to restrict your weight gain, it is recommended not to eat more than you can use up in a day along with increasing the intensity and amount of physical activity so that it matches the amount of physical activity. You must try to incorporate either 75 minutes of hard training or 150 minutes of moderate exercise in a span of seven days in order to boost healthy weight loss.
  2. Consume a wide array of nutritious items from all food groups: Though you may believe that you are eating a sufficient amount of foods, your body may not be receiving an optimum amount of nutrients it needs for proper functioning. Foods that are considered rich in nutrients must contain sufficient amounts of protein, minerals, whole grains and other variants of nutrients with low calorie content. These foods not only aid in reduction of weight but also trigger lowering of blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  3. Eat right: You must aim to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet besides whole grains, dairy products with low fat contents, legumes and nuts. It is important to stay away from red meat, trans fat, artificially sweetened beverages and sodium. Experts also suggest consuming less of food that has poor nutrient content in order to protect your heart.
  4. Avoid smoking and alcohol: Simply exercising and eating a healthy diet is important, but you should not eliminate the adverse effects of smoking and alcohol consumption, which not only cast an impact on the health of your heart but also cause a variety of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. The medications and remedial measures vary greatly among individuals and thus, it is crucial to speak with a doctor for receiving personalized treatments. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Excess of antidepressant drugs does have side effects. So avoid it as much as you can, take it when necessary. You need to be social and be thankful to the almighty that you are alive and you are the one who have been blessed with life among millions of sperm. Be social, go to park daily, talk to people, enjoy every moment of your life with your wife. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for all your health related issues.

Body and mind work together. When you are having increased heartbeats and feeling anxious you need to understand what is going on in your mind. You will have to analyse your thoughts and the feelings behind these thoughts. May be you are underconfident about your abilities or may be you are scared of somehting. Presently you are not realising what is happening to you. This needs to be explored. Talk to a counsellor, who will help you to understand your mind games and will help you to get rid of this anxiety.

The 6 Things that Make You Prone to Heart Diseases the Most

6 Things that make you prone to heart diseases the most

Every year almost 2 lakh people opt for heart surgeries in India; and as of 2015 there were about 30 million people in the country suffered from heart diseases. There are several factors that increase the threat of heart diseases, among which some can be controlled and some can't. On one hand, where factors like being a man, old age, being a woman in the post-menopausal phase of life, and a family history of heart diseases are beyond your control; other risks can be minimized by making some lifestyle changes. 

Although natural processes like ageing, which narrow down your arteries and weaken the heart muscles increase the risk of heart diseases here are 7 factors, which dramatically increase your chances of getting heart diseases, while you are still young.

1. Genetic Factors: 
If someone in your family is already suffering or has suffered from a heart disease, especially at a young age, it increases your probability of getting a cardiovascular disease.

2. High Levels of Cholesterol in the Blood:
Chances of formation of plaque on the inner walls of the arteries increase with increasing levels of bad (LDL) cholesterol in the blood. This may be a major cause of the heart disease, atherosclerosis, which happens due to accumulation of fatty substances inside the arteries. 

3. Smoking:
Smoking causes constriction of your blood vessels and may damage their inner lining due to the effect of nicotine on them. This can put you at high risk of developing atherosclerosis. Moreover, studies suggest that people who smoke are twice as prone to heart attacks in comparison to non-smokers.

4. Hypertension:
If your blood pressure level is usually above normal, it can give rise to thickened arteries, which, in turn, can reduce the passage for the flow of blood through the vessels. This damages your heart health to a large extent and makes you prone to heart diseases.

5. Diabetes:
Uncontrolled diabetes increases your chances of getting a heart attack, especially because diabetes almost goes hand in hand with diabetes and obesity, which are risk factors of heart diseases.

6. Stress:
If you fail to keep your levels of stress and anger in check, they may have a damaging effect on your arteries. This can make way for strokes and heart attacks in the future.

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation.

I am suffering from chronic pain and chest pain I didn't use any tablets for this tell any other process to cure.
Certainly chest pain is not something to ignore. But you should know that it has many possible causes. In fact, as much as a quarter of the U.S. Population experiences chest pain that is not related to the heart. Chest pain may also be caused by problems in your lungs, esophagus, muscles, ribs, or nerves, for example. Some of these conditions are serious and life threatening. Others are not. If you have unexplained chest pain, the only way to confirm its cause is to have a doctor evaluate you. You may feel chest pain anywhere from your neck to your upper abdomen. Depending on its cause, chest pain may be: Sharp Dull Burning Aching Stabbing A tight, squeezing, or crushing sensation Visit your doctor.
