Increasing penis length, girth and enhancing overall appearance is quite possible. This is because the male organ consists of muscles and no bones. As you can develop your biceps, muscles can also be developed present in penis. However, for this, you need to nourish the male organ from both the sides; internally and also externally. There are many homoepathic medicine available. The muscles present in penis are very flexible and strong when they become straight and erected. They are otherwise flaccid in resting position. For this, you should do exercises advised and homoepathic medicines to nourish the entire structure. You can consult me by clicking on consult option for homoeopathic treatment or you can buy package of penis enlargement offered by me which includes medicine and consultation..

Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -drink plenty of fluids (veg/tomato soups, dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food (like sprouts/milk).

Why 6 Hours of Sleep is the Same as No Sleep

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Why 6 Hours of Sleep is the Same as No Sleep

Your body is in constant motion and at night, it needs rest to rejuvenate and get itself all prepped for the next day. Getting adequate rest will improve your skin’s health and keep you youthful. The level of testosterone, insulin secretion, cell division and performance in athletics all get managed by a good night’s sound sleep. Besides these, your motor skills and cognition improve as well.

Some people say that six hours of sleep is enough for them to function well. But this is merely a myth. Those who sleep for six hours are not even aware how tired they are in fact. Thus, anything less than eight hours is not good for your body. You need the adequate sleep for your body to get rejuvenated for action the following day. Less sleep and you might end up feeling sluggish the entire day, with absolutely no energy reserves left.

Sleep deprivation can lead to:
1. Fatigue, absence of motivation and increased lethargy
2. Irritation and mood swings
3. Lack of creativity and rational thought to solve problems
4. Inability to deal with stress
5. Loss of immunity which leads to frequent infections and colds
6. Memory and concentration problems
7. Sudden weight gain
8. Insufficient motor skills that lead to accidents
9. Decision making difficulties
10. Risk of diabetes, heart conditions and other medical problems

Then there are two hormones that govern your appetite, ghrelin and leptin. The hormone “ghrelin” controls the appetite and “leptin” signals the brain when you are full. When you sleep lesser than eight hours, the level of “ghrelin” goes up and “leptin” levels come down. This makes you eat more and you don’t even realize when you are full. This way, you just end up gaining a lot of weight.

Fatigue ends up severely affecting your motor and cognitive skills. You feel disoriented and edgy. Here are some things you can do to sleep better:
1. Stick to regular sleep schedules
2. Avoid looking at computer and other electronic video screens for a long time at night; because the glare disrupts your sleep schedules.
3. Keep your room dark and quite for a cosy sleep

Hello Lybrate user, itching on whole body with red rashes is probably due to urticaria or skin allergy. Avoid certain food (like peanuts, brinjal etc) which triggers itching. 3+ amorphous urates crystals in urine test may indicate acidic urine and possibility of kidney or bladder stone. (sonograph is needed to rule out diagnosis) sometime, moderate to low amorphous urates is also found in urine test of healthy person as it forms mostly due to refrigeration of urine sample. Drink plenty of water, 8-9 glass per day to remove toxins from body and maintain hydration.(hydrotherapy also helpful to flush out bladder stone, if any?) try homeopathy for skin complaint. It’s a safe, natural and highly effective for skin complaints and allergies. It is a holistic way of treatment. In chronic cases, homeopathic medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient, like medical history, causes, routine, temperament etc.; such well selected medicine gives complete cure without any side effects. Message back for proper consultation.

Dear, there is no treatment in any kind of medical system to increase penis size. Only 2-3 inches of penis length is sufficient to satisfy your spouse / partner. Sexual performance is based not on size but on foreplay, knowing your partner needs, making your partner feel desirable and maintaining interest in sexual activity. Please do not use any kind of supplements or oils. Yes but width can be easily treated & increase by following measures: 1). Proper counselling 2). Exercises / techniques 3). Ayurvedic medicines it can be treated in 4-6 weeks with an experience in this area.

How many times can a boy masturbate in a week is masturbation injurious to health.

PhD Human Genetics
Sexologist,
How many times can a boy masturbate in a week is masturbation injurious to health.
Masturbation is not injurious to general health, sexuality or infertility. There is no rule that this many times is good and this many times is bad. You may masturbate as and when your body and mind express the desire/need for sexual relief. Just follow it. Just as you dont drink water when are not thirsty, you also dont masturbate when you do not have desire or interest.
