Do you see yourself get angry often? Well, the good news is that anger is a normal emotion like any other emotion. But mismanaged anger can be very detrimental to your health, relationships, decision making and clear thinking capacity. Anger is a secondary emotion, hiding many primary emotions like fear, embarrassment, hurt, rejection, irritation. Try to identify your primary feeling and use that to explain yourself rather than expressing your anger and see your relationships blooming and health improving. Have a great day!

Hello Doc, I am 24 years old working women with height 164 cm (5'4"). Over the course of time I have gained weight and now its stable between 61-62 kg. Although I have google a lot about diets and weight loss food tips, but I would love to hear from a dietician that is there any blood group specific diet that one should follow to reduce weight and fat. I am a bit reluctant to go and spend money on diet charts prepared by dietician because I cannot afford that much because I am average earning person. So I am asking for a response from your side if there is something called diet and diet tips and any blood group specific diet to reduce weight and fat, I would love to hear that.

There is no blood group specific diet .You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. to burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. as half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

Dear lybrate-user you have to get evaluated by ent surgeon and audiologist for complete examination of your hearing problem. The surgical treatment depends on the type and extent of damage to the hearing mechanism. If possible you can go for cochlear implant after evaluation which may give good results.

Having Serious Conversations:
When you start arguing during the bedtime, your mind will be full of thoughts, mostly negative ones. You will get irritated and agitated. A research has shown that fighting with someone at bedtime will preserve the negative emotions until you wake up.

Looks like you have oesophagitis, gastric ulcer or acid peptic dyspepsia, I would advise healthy life style, regularity of food, avoid spicy fried food intake. Avoid medicines causing acidity, tobacco, alcohol. If above medications taken for 4 - 6 weeks continuously does not help. You may require investigations like upper gi endoscopy, ultrasound abdomen etc. See a consulting gastoenterologist.

This is noway related to viagra as such, air coming out of ear is due to ear perforation, this needs to be addressed, get audiometry done for ear to rule out how much damage has done already, and this need surgical correction if needed.

Hello ma'am, as you've hearing difficulty it required get to done your audiometry from audiologist. For hearing difficulty there r many causes any history related to noise exposure, if you r hearing very loud music for respective hrs, any otologic history such as discharge from ear, pain medical history. Frequent cold & cough problem as a precaution point of view 1st you've to mentioned in detail what you suggest it caused of but in general avoid to remain your ear wet, don't pour any oil or water in it. Keep ear dry, used ear protection device if surrounded environment is noisy, don't try to remove your wax by own don't used earbud so frequently bcoz most of people unaware how much they've to insert it & then result is damage of that. So if you feel that hearing difficulty due to wax accumulation then concern & remove from ent.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you may do pranayam daily, especially anulom vilom but yes slowly and don't blow air forcefully. It will be beneficial for ear. You should go for regular checkup to an e. N. T. You may also take mullein drops available at homoeopathic store, 2 drops in each ear twice daily (2nd time before sleeping).

Hearing - 7 Tips to Safeguard it!

Hearing - 7 Tips to Safeguard it!

Your hearing is one of the most important function your body carries out and sometimes you realize that you are losing your sense of hearing, when it is too late to get it back. There are two main reasons for this. One of the reason is age and the other is when the inner ear's hair cells break down and do not pick up sound well.

Here are 7 ways to safeguard your hearing:

  1. Try to avoid loud places: It is not advisable to go to places where you have to shout to be heard, such as in a street, a concert or a construction site.
  2. Buy low noise rating equipment: The equipments in your house will make sound that you hear the most. Try to avoid these equipments by buying appliances with a low noise rating.
  3. Wear hearing protection at loud places: However, it is true that it is not always possible to avoid loud noises. This is when you need to get hearing protection. Earplugs and earmuffs are two of the best ways to make sure that even when you are in a loud place, your hearing does not get affected. Earplugs and earmuffs generally reduce sound by 15 to 30 decibels, which may be crucial to make sure that later in your life, you do not lose your hearing.
  4. Avoid smoke: Smoking raises your chance of hearing loss. Second hand smoke does the same thing. Therefore, try to avoid, both smoking and secondhand smoking. 
  5. Remove earwax properly: Earwax cannot be removed properly using a cotton swab. Instead, you should use an irrigation kit. Remember this as otherwise; the earwax could muffle your hearing.
  6. Avoid medications which reduce hearing: Certain medications increase hearing loss. Therefore, double check with your doctor to make sure your medicines will not make you lose your hearing.
  7. Get your hearing tested: Finally, get your hearing tested as identifying the problem early on can help stop worsen the situation.
