Please do a USG of lower abdomen first. Sugar mixed with water and lemon juice will help in exfoliating your face and offer natural bleach to your face. The lemon juice used will help in lightening the color of your facial hair. These three ingredients combine to help effectively remove hair on your face as well as other parts of the body. It is advisable not to use these ingredients on sensitive parts. Ingredients: •2 tablespoons of sugar •10 tablespoons of water •2 teaspoons of lemon juice •One small bowl Method: •Mix sugar and water in the small bowl. •Once the sugar solution is ready, add lemon juice into the bowl and mix well. •Now apply this sugar and lemon mixture on your face in the direction of hair growth on the face. •Allow this mixture to rest on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. •Wash it off with water after 20 minutes, by rubbing the mixture gently with your hands. •Repeat this process two to three times a week to see a reduction in facial hair.

Gm sir on 15 th may my sis got baby n 17 may she died suddenly I thing while feeding milk she slept n not got up now my sister in big trauma n I just want to know now she is getting breast pain due to not feeding what medicine or treatment she can do.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I am very sorry to hear that. Pray that the God give your sister strength to overcome the shock. Yes there are medicine, but you can't get it over the counter, as well as, you should not try without a doctor's supervision. Please consult the gynaecologist who took your sister's care during her antenatal period. She needs counselling and this medicine. Go as soon as possible, otherwise she may develop more breast engorgement and might develop breast abscess. Till medicine is started let her express milk manually. This is just for your knowledge, total 14 days treatment with cabergoline is the drug of choice. It is given 3.5 mg daily for 3 days then 2.5 mg twice daily for 11 days more. (total 14 days). But remember, you must not start the medicine without advice of her doctor because she might have developed psychosis by now, due to shock, and also she need to be examined before starting this medicine.

Allergies - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat Them?

Allergies - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat Them?

One of the most revered modes of healing, Ayurveda is entrusted with various beneficial properties that cures a wide range of ailments. Quintessential and indigenous methods of probing into the medicinal virtues of various herbs and other natural condiments, Ayurveda is attributed with remedial qualities for a number of ailments and all this without ushering any side effect whatsoever. 

One of the most frequent use of Ayurveda is found in healing allergies. Ayurveda over the centuries has emerged as a trusted recourse to take while combating an allergy. One needs to dig out the best therapies that Ayurveda has to offer in order to get rid of the stubborn annoyances that most allergies posit.

Inherent allergies
Certain people are born with lesser or nil tolerance towards certain specific particles in their immediate surroundings. On account of certain genetic predisposition, some are prone to react adversely to a few allergens. In the Ayurveda vocabulary, such a condition is designed to be caused by unstable influences. These influences may be in the form of environmental elements like dust and pollens or certain specific kinds of food items. 

While the most obvious solution might be to avoid the source of such allergies, in case where the interaction with the given set of allergens is unavoidable, Ayurveda offers viable solutions. Depending on whether the reaction is mild or chronic, Ayurveda prescribes specific cure Some of the mild symptoms in these cases are sneezing, coughing, conspicuous marks, rashes, watering of nose and eyes among others. For such allergies, one of the most effective Ayurvedic  remedies would be a mixture of beetroot, carrot and cucumber juice. Regular intake builds immunity and resistance power and thus, reduces the effect of such allergic reactions.

Acquired allergies
Unlike the natural allergies, certain allergies develop as the individual ages. These may be seasonal or procured sensitivities and these usually manifest certain stronger reactions. Most of the time, such allergies, known as amanita in Ayurveda terms, are associated with indigestion and imbalance in the digestive juices or dysfunction of the digestive organs. To deal with such anomalies, detoxing the body is essential. The first step to cure would be to detox the body of the allergy causing toxins. 

An easy and natural remedy would blending honey and lemon in lukewarm water and drinking it regularly for a prolonged period of time. This also has additional advantages for the skin and the overall organ system. Alma based drinks or tablets could also prove beneficial to abate such acquired allergies.

Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- white discharge/leucorrhoea is known as shweta pradar in ayurveda and the major cause of it is mal nourishment of the body. As you are underweight you have to take proper care of your diet and your sleep to avoid discharge. 1) avoid spicy diet and increase dairy products in your meals. 2) take a sound sleep of at least 9-10 hour a day. 3) use shesham tree leave bark powder and use it 1/2 tsp twice. 4) wash your vagina with alum (fitkari) water daily.

Hypothyroidism is a very common problem these days. Periods get disturbed due to hypothyroidism. But I advise you not to take allopathic medicines for periods as these r hormones and will create serious side effects which may create problems in pregnancy also. There is a wonderful ayurvedic treatment if hypothyroidism. U can msg me on my consult for more discussion and also send me the lab report.
