To lose weight, you have to maintain an input-output ratio. Whatever food you eat contains the input calories which gives you the output calories in the form of energy. If your input calories is too much, you are likely to put on weight. The best way to lose weight is to exercise or spend the additional calories accumulated in your body in the form of fat. The other most important thing is to eat wisely. Try to cut down the excessive calories you are eating and make sure whatever you eat is healthy. Some tips to lose weight - 1. Have more fruits and vegetables than junk food and juices. 2. Avoid sugar as much as you can 3. Exercise 3-4 times a week. 4. Have an early dinner, preferably before 8 p. M. 5. Do not starve yourself. Eat small meals 5 times a day. 6. Have barley soup in dinner and avoid rice at night. 7. Drink lots of water daily.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

See a gastroenterologist, you need investigations, like Ultrasound upper G I Endoscopy. You need to go on a diet of 2000 Kcal per day and increase your exercise. Stop all sugar intake (use Sugar free, equals, splenda) to sweeten your tea/coffee, eat only two cahppati / slices of bread with each meal, or one bowl of rice. Fill your tummy with fruits like Papaya, apple and guava, or salads like cucumber, lettuce. You can eat any amount of vegetables cooked in small amounts of oil. Take the white of two boiled eggs evry day and white meat like fist / chicken, also cooked in very small amount of oil. Please maintain a diary for your daily intake and go for a run / walk for 45 min every day. Please also get your thyroid profile checked at any good lab.

Sir /Madam I am suffering for left side chest pain for last one year please give me any suggestions.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Sir /Madam I am suffering for left side chest pain for last one year please give me any suggestions.
Chest pain in a young patient like yourself could be musculoskeletal or gastric in best case scenario or cardiac in worst case. So some practical steps to eliminate possibilities begins with knowing whether this pain is associated with breathless, sweating or palpitations (increased heart rate) and especially increases on high state of activity whether physical or emotional. If this is the case then possibility of cardiac related event becomes very important and you need further work up without delay. However if your chest pain is movement related or enhanced with shoulder girdle movement along with local pain on pressing the chest wall then in that case musculoskeletal pain is first possibility to consider. Also, if this chest pain is central and is associated with meals or indigestion or constipation then keep acidity on high alert and start taking anti acidity medicines to counter this gastric problem. Localisation in case of chest pain is a wrong methodology. By localisation I mean the attribution of pain to a organ in chest. Chest pains are very treacherous types and merely localisation to left side does not mean that it is serious problem. Hope this helps.
