There is no treatment remains with homeopathy once tonsils are enlarged, so you might need to go for surgery for the same, as surgeries are less complicated.

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

COUGH HYEGIENE.

When one cough or sneeze,one tend to expel out respiratory waste which can be droplets( larger 5 microne) or airborne droplets( less than 5 microne)
Droplet can travel 3-6 ft and airborn droplet upto 10 ft.
Droplet infection occure in inflenza/swine flu, so person at a distance of 3 ft can get infection.
Droplet airborn infection occures in TB and a persone even at distance of 10ft can get infection.
Cover your mouth and nose while cuoghing/sneezing to avoid spread of infection.
Keep your window AC in out door circulation mode to redude cross infection.
In split AC there is no provision of out side aircirculation and chances of cross infection increases.
Use cough hygiene to prevend spread of infection.

Just by positive tb igra, do not confirm tb dis. It confirm tb infection only. If no other investigation is positive and having symptoms of tb, then doctors do start tb treatment with warning to patient that it is a therapeutic trial only.

I am 22yr old female and have cough for last 3yrs. What should I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

How long, any diurnal variation. If only in the morning and limited to throat clearing, then can be considered normal. If associated with running nose/sneezing then can be due to allergy. Avoid cold, dust, smoke, pollution.

Foods That Help You Maintain Healthy Heart

Foods That Help You Maintain Healthy Heart

Here is a list of foods that keeps your heart healthy:

Salmon: omega-3 fatty acids are very important for your heart to function optimally. Fishes such as salmon and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which lower the risk of heart diseases such as arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) and atherosclerosis (accumulation of plaque in the arterial walls).

Oats: like oats and milk for breakfast? congratulations! you are in luck; oatmeal has soluble fibers which help in lowering bad cholesterol levels. Just make sure that there is no added sugar in your oatmeal, as it will defeat the entire purpose.

Blueberries: blueberries are rich in antioxidants that reduce the risks of heart attack and also decrease your blood pressure. So go ahead! toss some blueberries in your oatmeal to get your daily dose of antioxidants which are such pre-requisites for supreme health.

Dark chocolate: this will probably bring a smile to your lips. Dark chocolates contain polyphenols, a type of flavonoid, which is very good for your heart. Dark chocolate is known to reduce the risks of strokes and heart attacks. Watch the portion size as no matter what its benefits are, dark chocolates are still rich in calories.

Citrus fruits: citrus fruits such as lemons and indian gooseberry are rich in compounds that lower cholesterol levels in the body. Tip start your day with a lemon juice and warm water. This betters your metabolism and also keeps your heart in fine shape.

Soy: lo behold vegetarians! (and non-vegetarians as well). Soy is a protein rich food that is so good for your heart. It also contains heart-healthy fats and fibers that help bring down and normalize cholesterol levels.

Tomatoes: tomatoes are rich in an antioxidant called lycopene, which is very effective in getting rid of bad cholesterol. It thus helps in keeping your arteries healthy and reduces the risks of heart attacks.

Nuts: nuts such as almonds and walnuts are rich in vitamin e which helps in lowering bad cholesterol in the body. Avoid nuts that come with added salt.
