Dear lybrate-user, it is not worth to waste time on the girl who does not value you, it is better that you do not have to waste your precious time and youthful energy on her. Use your time wisely, remember that your life is too precious to waste on a person who is dishonest towards you. You deserve a better person. In the material world the boy says to the girl, “I love you,” and the girl says to the boy, “I love you,” but that as soon As there is some disruption in their sense gratification, there is quarrel, Separation. Lust is based on selfishness and as soon as the girl or boy finds selfish pleasures not satisfied, then the person selfishly becomes affectionate towards another person. She does not deserve you. You should feel happy that you did not waste your time on her. Do not become victim of her selfishness. Although one may profess true love, inwardly one’s real desire is to enjoy his own senses. We love someone as long as he or she satisfies our senses, and when such sensual pleasure dwindles, the so-called love dwindles with it. Thus the love affair ends in separation. What we speak of as “love” in the material world is actually lust, or a desire to serve oneself. It has no permanent basis; today I love one girl, tomorrow another, according to my changing fancy. Indeed, although a boy and girl may change sexual partners as often as dogs and cats do, in our modern idiom we refer to their sexual intercourse as “lovemaking,” as through the gross friction of two hot bodies could generate love. We speak of love so easily, but really in this material world there is no love—it is all lust. The difference between love and lust is like the difference between gold and iron. Both gold and iron are metals, but otherwise they are not at all alike.

He has to undergo physiotherapy and get his bp and sugars checked regularly. Diet should be balanced with more protiens and less fat specially foods containing oil, butter and sugars. Depending on the type of stroke, he may require blood thinners.

5 Facts to Know About Your Cholesterol

How is your Cholesterol these days? Not sure?

Don’t worry because you are not alone. Most people don’t have any idea about their risk for heart disease.

What’s even more threatening?
Cholesterol can start to clog your arteries as early as your twenties in this generation. And this is a potential threat to major heart disease. It’s better we start paying an extra attention to our cholesterol.

I'm fatty how to control my fat. And I'm also high pressure patient. Doctor please help me.?
Dear Lybrate User, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to decrease body weight in a very short time. Do not fall prey for such advertisement because the excess weight would not be shredded until each & every underlying cause of being overweight is diagnosed & treated. The basic role behind the process of accumulation of fat in human body is played by Metabolism. Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. Accumulation of fat indicates that a considerable amount of the calories which you are taking daily is not used up by the body & is stored as fat. In order to lose the excess fat you need to increase your rate of metabolism. Once your rate of metabolism or BMR is increased your body will use up the excess calories stored as fat in your body. First of all you need to rule out the possibility of the presence of any hormonal disturbance that may be affecting your metabolism. Just conduct a total Thyroid profile test of all your blood (also Serum Testosterone level in case of males). If the reports are within normal limits then you should proceed further to increase your metabolism. If you find any abnormalities in the report you should immediately consult a doctor.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case.

My dad has a bicuspid aortic valve and was advised to undergo surgery because his aorta was enlarged. I have looked up symptoms of bicuspid aortic valve and they fit me too. I don't want to send my family into panic by getting it checked at a hospital. Is this a genetic problem that I could have inherited? Also if you assume I do have the problem what measures can I take now (I'm 22) to prevent such a risk of surgery later in life (like diet and stuff maybe)?

Bicuspid valve will not cause symptoms. It is usually a minor variation of valve design. There is 5% chance of inheritance, but there is no need to go for a echo test, unless you are very curious. Even if you have it, it doesn't matter much, as long as the valve is opening and closing normally. Best wishes.
