In what proportions should I mix the honey and lemon? After how many hours can I have my breakfast?

In what proportions should I mix the honey and lemon? After how many hours can I have my breakfast?
Hi lybrate-user honey and lemon" mix one teaspoon of fresh honey with the juice of half a lime/lemon in a glass of lukewarm water first thing in the morning. It is very beneficial on an empty stomach. Take several times a day at regular intervals. Anything in the excess harms your body. If anyone really wants to go for this treatment, keep it up for at least a couple of months. However, please note that drinking water with lemon (or any particular food) alone (and nothing else) will not cause one to lose weight. It will help, but it is part of a bigger picture including our entire diet and exercise. A holistic approach involving diet and exercise is always necessary for healthy weight loss.

It means that the baby is vertical in the womb with its head in the lower part of the uterus. Cephalic presentation is the commonest position and is good for natural childbirth.

Benefits and Risks of Giving Birth in Water

Benefits and Risks of Giving Birth in Water

Water birth, as revolutionary as it might sound, is not a bad idea. Common in the European countries like Australia and New Zealand, many birth centres in the United States have also started installing water birth tubs. It is the process of giving birth in a warm water tub, which is said to ease the process. The logic behind this goes that since the baby stays in the mother's womb for nine months in a water sac, therefore, birthing in a similar environment is better for the baby and less complex. Many obstetricians believe that this also prevents any kind of foetal complications. 

There are both benefits and risk of water birth. They are as follows:

Benefits of water birth: 
Water labour and water birth has the following advantages for the mother and the baby.

For the mother:

  1. The warm water provides mobility and comfort to the mother. The mother is also at a spontaneous position in water to change her location and deliver the baby.
  2. Pressure on the abdomen is decreased. Buoyancy helps in the efficient contraction of the uterine walls and it improves blood circulation, which again gives better supply of oxygen to the uterine muscles. The baby is provided with sufficient amount of oxygen while the mother endures lesser pain.
  3. Birthing in water helps in conservation of energy on part of the mother. The immersion helps to reduce collision with gravity and gives support to the mother's weight. This energy produced helps in coping with the uterine muscle contractions.
  4. The process of labour becomes more productive as it gives relaxation to the mother. While the mother calms down in the water, her hormones start working better and in turn the process is accelerated. The water also helps in soothing the pelvic muscles.
  5. The immersion helps in lowering the level of blood pressure and in reducing anxiety.
  6. Stress is hugely reduced as the mother is at ease and this helps in producing endorphins that serve as pain inhibitors.

For the baby:

  1. The baby gets a similar environment as the amniotic sac which helps in the birthing process gets added support.
  2. The stress of birth is greatly reduced.

Risks of water birth:

  1. There remains a risk of water embolism that is when the water enters into the mother's bloodstream.
  2. If the mother has herpes, this practice should not be followed as herpes spreads in water faster.
  3. This should be avoided in case of excessive bleeding and any kind of maternal infection.

How To Tackle PCOS Naturally

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Pune
How To Tackle PCOS Naturally

Women with pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome), are researched to be at a greater risk for heart diseases, obesity, diabetes and infertility.

A few dietary guidelines to combat pcos 

Try to select lower glycemic index foods such as whole grains (jowar, bajra, whole wheat, green vegetables, etc) as they will cause a slower rise in blood sugar levels. For example, oat flakes or wheat daliah (10 gm fiber/1/2 cup) has a lower glycemic index than cornflakes (1 gm fiber/1/2 cup. Simply put, add fiber in your diet by selecting wheat breads over white breads, wheat rotis over rice or maida naans, fresh fruits over fruit juices.

Do cut down your carbohydrate levels so low that you induce ketosis. Try to space the carbohydrates evenly through the day and eat small and frequent meals rather than 3 large meals.

Restrict intake of those carbohydrates that trigger more hunger or cravings (i. E. Refined sugar, sweets, candies or chocolates which triggers craving for some people). Choose dates or honey to meet your sugar cravings.

Suggested vitamin/ mineral supplements: taking calcium 1000 mg - 1500 mg (take two - three 500 mg pills a day as prescribed but be sure to space them out as you can only absorb 500 mg at a time). You may also add a multivitamin with minerals like folic acid, especially so, if you are trying to get pregnant.

Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day as a high fiber carbohydrate intake can cause dehydration.

For heart health, limit foods high in saturated and trans-fats (i. E, whole milk and products, butter, red meat, fried foods, rich desserts, etc.). Select mainly monounsaturated fats (i. E. Olive oil, canola oil, nuts) and omega 3 fats -fatty fish (such as bangda, rohu, sardines, and surmai), flaxseed, and nuts as these fats are heart friendly. Exercise on a regular basis to lose weight and improve insulin response.

Dear lybrate-user. It depends when did she have the last miscarriage and the cause. Also how her present pregnancy is is whether there are any complications or not.

How to remove Bally fat? I don't know why the desire of sex is below normal level.
Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal bmi of 18-25. You can take metformin to reduce weight. For reducing your weight or belly fat you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil. If you reduce weight it will definitely increase your desire to have sex.

Suggest a effective cream for  which gives instant relief from stomach pain and which is safe during pregnancy.
It is called as round ligament pain. It occurs because herr ligaments gets stretched by growing uterus, and with brisk movement or getting up it produces pain. If pain is severe one can take tab. Crocin or parcetamol for pain relief. In the meantime it is better to have per vaginal examination by a gynecologist to check whether you are not going in labor.
