Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy eggs nuts fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines or supplements. They will not work in isolation. You have to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal.

Hello I am a student I am preparing for competition exams. But past some days I am feeling tired want to sleep all day laziness. What should I do so that I could maintain my routine in harmony way.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

You can feel weak due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you do .

I am facing a problem of hair fall. Please help to avoid such problem. And suggest me what can I do for healthy hair.
Commonly dandruff or any other infection and lack of hair nourishment are the main causes for hair fall. This requires both local application for dandruff or any other infection and local massage with oil to increase circulation and internal consumption of herbal preparations as nutrients for hair growth

Hello ULCERATIVE COLITIS (UC) is a disease in which the lining of the large intestine (colon) becomes inflamed. This inflammation leads to the formation of raw sores, or ulcers, causing pain and bloody diarrhoea. UC usually begins gradually with bloody diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, cramps or pain in the belly, and growing urgency to move the bowels. Depending on which area of the colon is affected, the stool may be normal or hard and dry. Homoeopathic medicines Merc Sol, Merc Cor, Sulphur and Phosphorus are a few of the important ones used in treating ulcerative colitis.Selection of homoeopathic remedy is based on totality of symptoms of individual patient. So please send your symptom details for the right prescription.Thanks.

Hello, You need at least 25 kgs weight gain. Eat non oily nutritious, meals with atleast 2 servings of curd everyday. Add some low fat cottage cheese, soya chunks to your food preparation. Include flaxseeds, nuts and, oilseeds. Dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruits, might help. 7 hours, of sleep in the night is essential. Weight bearing exercises might also help.

Following tips will help you to prevent further hair loss: 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Hi, your mom's fatigue could be a result of the medications that she is currently on, to reduce bp. It could also be because of some other issues that needs to be evaluated. I would advise you to have her checked up by her medicine specialist/ cardiologist as appropriate. Simultaneously, she will have to check her dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other greesy/ oily & fatty foods. Ensure that she streamlines her lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. If she is working, she would require to streamline her occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps. Post your consultation with your doc, you may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a natural treatment plan that suits your mother in particular and gives her a sustainable relief.

Sorbitol is basically a sweeter, one form of sugar. It is also present in many other preparation and mostly it is not a primary ingredient to help you relax. Also reaching out side for stress removal is a short term strategy which does not help in a long run. There are other, more effective ways to learn to manage your stress. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. I also offer 3 to 6 months program where we need on a weekly basis to work towards your goal achievement. In case of need you may contact me. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

This feeling is temporary only. But the consequences of any bad decisions you take now will be permanent. Reconsider your decision. Get help from a psychiatrist immediately. You may be feeling that treatment will not work for you - that is also a symptom of depression. It is called hopelessness. But with good and effective treatment you can recover from depression and lead a fulfilling life.
