No More Motion Sickness When You Travel Next! #HomeRemedy
Natural Ways To Avoid Motion Sickness

It’s onset of festive season and also a heavy travelling time in India. Very often many people feel unwell while travelling. This problem is called Motion Sickness. Many of us, irrespective of age, feel sick while on road trips. This does extend to other modes of transports as well. Some common symptoms of motion sickness are fatigue, nausea, pale skin, headache, vomiting, increased salivation, sweating and dizziness. They usually occur when the motion begins and stop with the motion. Some ways to combat motion sickness with natural remedies are:

1. Ginger: Ginger is well known for its effectiveness in motion sickness. Ginger's primary active chemical component is Gingerol has been scientifically proven to be a valuable anti-motion sickness agent.
You can have ginger in tea, or as juice mixed with lemon juice, or just swallowing half a teaspoon of freshly chopped ginger with or without honey, before you travel. Ginger 500mg capsules are available in the market that also can be taken. It has antiemetic properties which reduce motion sickness and also aids digestion which in turn helps avoid nausea. Ginger is safe for even pregnant women and children.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar - It is helpful in many health conditions, motion sickness being one of them. It has alkaline and pH balancing effect on our bodies, this helping cure motion sickness. In a cup of lukewarm water, add a tablespoon of honey and two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Drink this about half an hour before you are due to travel and give it some time to settle. If already suffering from motion sickness, then rinse your mouth with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed in half a cup of water.

3. Peppermint - Drinking peppermint tea before travelling is an effective way to combat motion sickness. You can also keep peppermint candy with you and suck on to it slowly when you start feeling uneasy. Alternatively, drop a few drops of peppermint oil on your handkerchief and smell it whenever you don't feel good.

Pelvic muscles r equally strong if you had caesarian section. So you don't have to worry. Still if you feel that pelvic muscles r weak then go for keigel's exercise to strengthen your pelvic muscles.

Hi, my wife is 22 years old. She feels breast mouse in the time between her ovulation and period. The inner tumor like things are grown in this time and after period, they are gradually gone. What should we do?

Homeopath, Ludhiana
It is common for young people to feel lumpiness in the breast during your ovulation period, especially right before your period. If it is due to normal hormonal changes that are going on inyour body during the menstrual cycle, an it goes away itself after menses starts.So relax.

Panchkarma Therapies - How They Benefit You?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian field of medicine that has been in existence since time immemorial. Many people swear by its efficacy and it is also a proper field of study for people who want to practice this form of medicine as doctors. Ayurveda makes use of a variety of herbs and lifestyle changes including diet, rest and massages in order to create a healthier body. Ayurveda combines Yogic postures with these herbs to create various kinds of treatment for varied conditions.

Panchakarma therapy is one of the kinds of Ayurvedic treatments that can greatly benefit the human body in many ways. This is basically made up of five therapies, which aim at removing the toxins from the body of the patient. One must take a proper consultation with a doctor in order to practice this therapy. Read on to know more about this form of treatment and its various benefits.

  1. Five therapies: As mentioned above, this therapy is made up of five therapies including Vamana, Raktamokshana, Nasya, Basti and Virechana. These therapies aim at freeing the body of the toxins that may accumulate and give rise to a variety of conditions and diseases in various organs of the body.
  2. Oils and diet: This therapy is carried out with the help of various medicated oils that help in eliminating the different toxins in one’s body. As per the tenets of Ayurveda, one also has to follow a specific diet and a systematic routine along with this therapy so that the Kapha toxins are removed from the body.
  3. Ailments and conditions: There are many kinds of conditions and ailments that can be cured and managed with the help of this therapy. Asthma and cervical spondylitis are some of the conditions. Here, the painful symptoms and attacks can be kept at a minimum because these have to do with the Kapha dosha, which is effectively treated when the Kapha toxins are flushed out of the body following this therapy. This treatment helps in cleansing the body with the help of the various oils and the five therapies that are used here.
  4. Aging process: The Panchakarma therapy helps in preventing the aging process and the signs of aging by replenishing the cells and the energy in the body. This helps in keeping the bones, skin and hair healthy as well, since the patient goes through regular bouts of massage in order to get the treatment.
  5. Stress: This treatment eliminates stress as it brings about a more calm state of mind. It does so by strengthening the body through the removal of immunity breaking toxins, which puts the hormones back in balance.

Benefits of Panchakarma Treatment:

The results of Panchakarma are very powerful and effective. Some of the benefits include:

  1. The doshas – vata, pitta and kapha, will return to their original places and function normally. Mind calms down, and intellect and concentration becomes sharp.
  2. It helps to attain a clear and glowing complexion.
  3. It helps to reverse the negative effects of daily living.
  4. It restores the natural state of health and wellness by bringing balance in the system and improving bodily function.
  5. A person undergoing Panchakarma attains longevity, intellect and freedom from diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Is bed rest necessary after ivf pregnancy? Is light work like cooking. Allowed. I conceived by ivf in aug 16. But gone through pre term delivery in 5th month. I did job. So please suggest me for next attempt. What are the precautions?

Obstetrician, Pune
Bed rest along with mental peace is of utmost importance in pregnancy. In your next pregnancy you may need cervical stitch as a prophylactic measure. Your obstetrician will explain you the appropriate time to put the cervical stitch and procedure of cervical stitch and will guide you regarding the same. I will suggest you to take a leave from your job once you become pregnant. You should avoid strenuous work and long and tiring journey once you become pregnant. No sexual intercourse once you become pregnant.

How double marker, triple marker test results are calculated? If age risk mentioned in the report is 1: 326 and the risk of the patient who is undergoing these tests during pregnancy is, say, 1: 500, this figure of 500 is calculated purely on the basis of patient's blood or on the bases of both, patient's blood as well as her age?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
More important is to know test result shows less chance compared to population at same age. However also important to understand that this gives only statistical chance not definite answer about whether this child is affected or not affected.

If she use lubic gel Then any problem with her pregnancy? And In lubic gel vagina can I intercourse normally?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
There are a variety of reasons why some women may require lubricants. These are usually jelly like substances that create some amount of moisture in the vagina so that there is an easy passage of the penis during intercourse. There are many women who suffer from vaginal dryness. This may happen due to stress, performance pressure with a new partner, or due to hormonal changes and menopause as well. Also, this may be a side effect of other kinds of conditions and medication. Further, conditions like vaginismus where the vagina goes into involuntary spasms and blocks the entry of a penis, may also require the use of a lubricant so that the male sexual organ can enter more easily. One will need to go to a doctor before choosing the lubricant so that tests and a proper diagnosis can take place. Also, the doctor will be able to prescribe the right kind of lubricant. However, one can also choose from an array of over the counter lubricants.

I have baldness I treated in several hospitals both ayurvedic and allopathic. But no results I'm not interested in hair fixing. I don't have any allergic reaction to medicines. I m not taking any medicines for any kind of disease. Menstruation is regular. I had undergone investigations like in hb, thyroid functions etc. Can you help me out from this problem.

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Just as your overall health will benefit from eating a balanced diet, so too should the health of your hair. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so don’t put foods in your body that speed up hair loss. You may be experiencing a thinning on top already, but you can counteract this (or at least slow it down) by eating from every food group daily -- concentrating on foods that are rich in protein, iron, silica, and zinc.
