Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I was smoking more than 3 years but I was scared and stopped smoking for couple of days. Daily morning during wake up I feel like breathless it is because I left smoking suddenly or some other problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The breathlessness is just a reaction and the outcome of some wild imagination. You have done very well to quit smoking and it is good that you did not have any symptoms but quit because you did not like it. It only means that you are proactive. Just keep up with the decision and if you find it very difficult meet with a counselor for a few sessions and that will help maintain your resolve.

I am 23 and I am having cough problem since 2 year. I think I got some allergy. I have done all tests and all went good, nothing bad comes out. But still my cough is persisting. When I take medicine it went away for sometime but after a month or so it started again and again. Currently I am taking allegra on a daily basis. Please suggest someting to me. Thanks.

DNB (Respiratory diseases), MBBS
Allergist/Immunologist, Nagpur
Seems to be allergic. 2 tests you would'nt have done are 1. Xray paranasal sinus 2. Spirometry. Have it done and upload the report. Probably you have nasal allergy with post nasal dripping of nose secretions over throat or asthma.

Please take bryonia 200 - once daily for next 3-4 days. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

खांसी के लिए घरेलू उपचार

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

खांसी से बचाव के लिए घरेलू उपचार

• गाय के दूध का 15-20 ग्राम घी और काली मिर्च को एक कटोरी में लेकर हल्की आंच में गरम कीजिए। जब काली मिर्च गरम हो जाए तो उसे थोडा सा ठंडा करके लगभग 20 ग्राम पीसी मिश्री मिला दीजिए। उसके बाद काली मिर्च निकालकर खा लीजिए। इस खुराक को दो-तीन दिन तक लेने से खांसी बंद हो जाएगी।
• तुलसी के पत्ते 5 काली मिर्च, 5 नग काला मनुक्का, 5 ग्राम चोकर (गेहूं के आटे का छान), 6 ग्राम मुलहठी, 3 ग्राम बनफशा के फूल लेकर 200 ग्राम पानी में उबाल लीजिए। जब पानी आधा हो जाए तो उसे ठंडा करके छान लीजिए। फिर गर्म करें और बताशे डालकर रात को सोते समय गरम-गरम पी लीजिए। इस खुराक को 3-4 दिन तक लेने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• खांसी होने पर सेंधा नमक की डली को आग पर अच्छे से गरम कर लीजिए। जब नमक की डली गर्म होकर लाल हो जाए तो तुरंत आधा कप पानी में डालकर निकाल लीजिए। सोने से पहले इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में काफी आराम मिलता है।
• एक ग्राम सेंधा नमक और 125 ग्राम पानी को आधा होने तक उबालिये। सुबह-शाम इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में आराम मिलता है।
• खांसी आने पर सोंठ को दूध में डालकर उबाल लीजिए। शाम को सोते वक्त इस दूध को पी लीजिए। ऐसा करने से कुछ दिनों में खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• शहद, किशमिश और मुनक्के को मिलाकर खाने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• त्रिफला में बराबर मात्रा में शहद मिलाकर पीने से खांसी में फायदा होता है।
• तुलसी, कालीमिर्च और अदरक की चाय पीने से भी खांसी समाप्त होती है।
• हींग, त्रिफला, मुलेठी और मिश्री को नींबू के रस में मिलाकर चाटने से भी खांसी में फायदा मिलता है।

सूखी खांसी कुछ ज्यादा ही तकलीफदेह होती है। सूखी खांसी में कफ नहीं आता सिर्फ खांसी आती है जो परेशान करती है। खांसी अगर ज्यादा दिन तक आए तो उसे नजरअंदाज नहीं करना चाहिए। दो हफ्ते से ज्यांदा खांसी आने पर चिकित्सक से संपर्क अवश्य करना चाहिए।

Shortness of breath sometimes, and it improves when pressure is applied on the middle back or upper back and shoulder blades. Why?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
There might be some kind of obstruction in the upper thoracic region and also may be due to oesophagitis which can be ruled out after clinical examination.

Hi, delay further ascent until symptoms improve. Let him rest and stay warm. Give oxygen, if available. Keep the person warm and have him or her rest. Give plenty of liquids. If symptoms continue, do not travel any higher and consider descending to a lower altitude. You can give your cousin homoeopathic medicine - coca 6x/ after every 2 hourly.

50% of children get out of asthma when they reach 15 years of age. Can be allergic with genetic predisposition. Use asthma controller medication by inhalation with spacer.

Great to hear the good effects of homeopathy on her. Please carry on with homeopathy. Only homeopathy can tackle allergy issue because it works upon the immunity of the person. I had great experience with such patients who are not allergic any more to various things after the prescription of homeopathic medicines.

Recently I consulted doctor for mair loss problem and done some tests and found that I have hypothyroid and I am taking thyroxine 50 mg daily from one week.

Cold and breathing problem is not related to thyroid. That is mostly due to the weather conditions. Your hairfall will stop if your thyroid levels become normal with medications. But for hair regrowth you need to put more efforts. Use herbal oils for scalp massage, three times a week. Use a mild shampoo for hair wash. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to promote hair regrowth. Amla/gooseberry is a excellent hair tone. You can have amla candies or amla juice everyday.

Hi, The following are some of the natural remedies for cold and cough: - Add a pinch of turmeric and 1/4 tsf of black pepper powder to hot milk and drink it twice a day. - Mix 1 tsf of honey to 1 tsf of basil leaf juice; take it twice a day. - Prepare a decoction by boiling one glass of water containing 1 tsf of coriander powder, 1 tsf of pepper powder and 1/2 tsf of ginger powder; reduce it to quarter glass and take it three times a day. - Apply turmeric paste on the forehead. - Do steam inhalation twice a day by adding 1-2 drops of eucalyptus oil to hot water. - Keep 1 grain of crystal salt and 2-3 black pepper in a beetle leaf, roll it and chew it. This relieves cough. Amla is rich in vit. C and vit. C is good for cold. But if you get throat irritation when amla juice is consumed. Avoid it.
