Please clarify the nature of heart disease, investigations done to conclude that it is heart disease & medicines given. Home remedy for sleep is a warm glass of milk with a spoon of honey added to it taken an hour before sleep, music therapy, avoiding violent tv debates /serials and to read soothing books.

When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

Only 1 sent should work like a shock treatment so that blockages are removed from rest of body including heart and brain. Give him minimum fats, no transfats, some good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items are available in the market. Simple walks as exercise. People do vouch for apple cider vinegar and lemon juice plus a spoon of honey added to it -it does remove the blockages, so does pomegranate, no harm or side effects.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

I am suffering from depression from last 10 years. Now a days I feel slow pain around my heart what should I do?
Depression always follows with anxiety and obsession. Happens because depressed people tend to sit idle for long time. Idle mind is devil's workshop. Sitting idle manifests obsession. Anxiety creates acidity. Acidity and obsession together creates many weird symptoms across body. I suggest one or two counseling sessions with psychotherapy techniques to cure your disorders.

Betacap TR contains Propranolol which is a non-selective beta blocker hence it does have some side effects in organs other than target organs. Side effects like increased heart rate, disturbances in blood pressure, fatigue, and dizziness can be seen with short term dosage but on long term consumption alopecia (hair loss) and abnormal vision can occur. Also since Propranolol can cross the blood brain barrier it can cause some neurological side effects like Insomnia, hallucinations, vivid dreams and nightmares. Stop this medicine and start homoepathic treatment which is safe and effective without side effects.

Dear lybrate-user, persistently high blood pressure in this range can be harmful to various organs of the body and must be controlled. However considering your age, one must find and treat, treatable causes of high bp. If none found, more powerful medicines to be given along with life style modification.
