Hi I will prescribe some flower remedy which is available in all homoeopathy shops. Mix 7 drops chicory + 7 drops heather + 7 drops willow + 7 drops holly. Mix these with 50 ml water and consume in the morning once in a day. I advice you to request her to take part in family affairs in a polite way. If the problem persists consult me online. Ok do not worry she will be allright.

Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media(CSOM)- Know The Causes And Symptoms

Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media(CSOM)- Know The Causes And Symptoms

A group of inflammatory diseases in the middle ear is termed as otitis media. When this problem persists more than a period of three months, it is known as chronic suppurative otitis media which can be described as a chronic inflammation of the mastoid cavity and middle ear. It is characterized by discharge from the ear. This happens because the tympanic membrane becomes perforated.

The phenomenon can be categorized into two, safe and unsafe CSOM and they are determined on the basis of whether or not cholesteatoma, which is an abnormal growth of skin in the middle ear, is present. The safe CSOM can be further subdivided into inactive and active depending on whether an infection is present or not. And the unsafe CSOM involves cholesteatoma which is non-malignant but can cause a destructive lesion on the base of the skull.

What are the causes of CSOM?
CSOM or chronic suppurative otitis media is mostly seen in people with chronic mastoiditis as a result of bacterial infection. It may stem from erosion of middle ear walls and the mastoid cavity which, in turn, can cause exposure of the jugular bulb, facial nerve, lateral sinus and temporal lobe dura.

What are the signs and symptoms of chronic suppurative otitis media?
Chronic suppurative otitis media presents itself with leakage from the affected ear. It also includes the possible history of traumatic perforation along with insertion of grommets and otorrhea which may or may not include otalgia or fever. Other symptoms of the disease include vertigo, otalgia, and fever. Your doctor would be able to rule out intracranial or intratemporal complication which is essential for the treatment of the disease. Some people also suffer from hearing loss in the affected ear, and you should ask your doctor regarding the impact of the problem on work and daily living.

On the other hand, the signs of the disease may include oedematousness of the external auditory canal which is not generally tender. Granulation tissue is also seen in the median canal or the ear space in the middle ear.

When there is postauricular swelling or facial paralysis or vertigo or mastoiditis, it is imperative to arrange for urgent assessment or evaluation with a team of ENT experts. The patient must keep the affected ear clean and dry as far as practicable. The instances of life-threatening complications from the disease have been reduced to a great extent with the introduction of sulfonamides and penicillin. According to the medical principles, the primary aim of managing the disease includes eradicating the infection and closure of tympanic perforation. With the help of proper treatment, your doctor would be able to reduce the intensity of hearing loss and a constant threat of microbial infection in the middle portion of the ear. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

How To Manage Diabetes

How To Manage Diabetes

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): Fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: Not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: Heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good, cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: Blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: Vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: Complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: Cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: People who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them. Even among the healthiest eaters, the ones who also eat nuts boast the best health record. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult

Most likely it's a yeast infection. You can use Candid V3 vaginal pessary for 3 nights and Candid cream to apply outside twice daily for the itch.

I'm a 31 years female and my weight is 100 kg trying to conceive for past 5 years but no luck through 6 IUI Cycle. So, before going in for IVF I want to reduce my weight. One of the doctor suggested weight loss surgery but I don't want to have surgery for rapid weight loss. I'm deficient in Vitamin D3 and B12 and occasional low B.P. Recently detected with PCOD/S. Don't have diabetes or hypertension. But no luck with weight loss even after consuming less calories. My Breakfast consists of a bowl of poha or upma or 4 idly or dosa. Lunch mainly consists of 1chapati or please and spicy or chicken (but chicken is occasionally like once a week). Dinner depends upon my mood otherwise I skip it, if I have its same as lunch. We mostly go clubbing 2 to 3 times a week where we have food mainly consists of kebab and Chinese rice or chicken biryani. I do exercise a little for an hour but mainly 2 to 4 a week. Want solutions for weight loss and PCOD/S, so that I can conceive.
