Please enlist/name the foods and activities that can trigger a migraine attack. Also please tell if there is any treatment for chronic migraines. I am suffering from migraine for about 17 years.

Peanuts, soya, walnuts, deep fried food, reused oil, mustard oil, sour and spicy food, fermented food are some of the common triggers for migraine. Sun exposure, looking at bright light, irregular food habits are some of the activities that cause migraine yes ayurveda has treatment for chronic migraine. We initially reduce the frequency and the intensity of attacks and then finally cure it. This requires co operation from your side too in terms of following the prescribed diet and lifestyle modifications internal medications will be prescribed in addition to a therapy called nasya - where a few drops of medicated oil is instilled through the nostrils.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder triggered by indigestion and stressful conditions. There is always a confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Every patient has 3 choices: 1.Allopathy - gives quick results but is not very safe for long term use. 2.Homeopathy- is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.e old patches show some recovery but new white patches continue to come even while using the medication. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quick repigmentation. We have integrated external Allopathic applications with internal Ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. For detailed queries like: 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can send pictures of the affected area. After reviewing the case individually, will guide you about the best possible treatment and time frame.

Gastric Problems - Symptoms And Treatment

Gastric Problems - Symptoms And Treatment

Also known as flatulence, gastric problems do not really mean any kind of disease. Rather, these occur as a result of some underlying condition or some distress affecting the digestive system. Gastric problems generally take their toll on the health of the person by showing their effects either as stomach pain or by making the person lose his appetite. These gastric problems generally come along with some of the serious health conditions like diarrhoea or problems like indigestion. It is now easy to treat flatulence by using the remedies that are readily available in households. 

Forms of gastric problem
Gastric problems do not generally occur alone and they usually come along with other conditions like digestive distress, diarrhoea or even cramps. Commonly this condition can be seen in three forms in a person. One is burping, the second form is belching and the third is flatulence. Each has their own magnitude of impact on the person. All three causes annoying effects to the person and can be taken care of with the help of some home remedies. The gastric problem can be of two types. One is the acute gastritis and the other is chronic gastritis. The first problem can be cleared off within few days time and the second problem needs some extra care and treatment. 

Symptoms of gastric problem
Some cases of gastric problem can be minor and can be taken care of easily. These problems can be resolved in a matter of one or two days. Other forms of flatulence can be severe and can cause other weaknesses in the body. Doctors say that gastric problems can be identified with the help of few easily comprehensible symptoms. 

Some of the common symptoms of the gastric problems are

  • Constant pain in the abdominal region
  • Indigestion
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Repeated vomiting and nausea
  • Increased pressure and pain in the chest area
  • Persistent headache
  • Sudden dizziness during work

Solution for the problem
There are some common home remedies for gastric worries which include: 

  • A little cinnamon powder can be mixed with a glass of warm milk and can be taken along with honey.
  • 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar must be mixed with a glass of warm water and cooled to the room temperature and drunk.
  • Equal amounts of fennel, ginger and cardamom must be ground together and a pinch of hing must be added to it and mixed with a cup of water. It must be taken twice a day.
  • 1 spoon each of carom seeds and black salt must be added to buttermilk and the solution has to be drunk. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist and ask a free question.

Kyunki Aaj ki date Mein girls ki ek aisi problem hai Jiska koi ilaaj nahi hai. This is PCOS. Polycystic ovarian syndrome aisi problem hai jo aaj ki date mein bahut hi common hoti ja rahi hai Kyunki stress Hai logo ki life mein, Lifestyle Aisa Ho Gaya Hai Ki jo hormonal imbalance Leke Aate Hamari body mein jo PCOS ko cause Karte Hai. PCOS ka right treatment homoeopathy mein hai Jis Mein Hum claim Karte Hai Hamare Paas records hai ki jo hum complete cure before and after Aise Bimaari Jiske modern medicine bolti hai ki Jiska koi cure nahi hai homoeopathy me cure ho rahi hai aisi problem.

PCOS sirf cyst ovary main usse PCS nahi bola jata hai sister ke sath sath Aur Bhi Jab 5-6 symptoms Aate Hain jaise ki facial hair, weight gain, acne, delayed menses, ye sare Jab Ek saath hota hai Tab isse PCOS bola jata hai. Aur ye symptoms Ko Jab Hum thik karte hain toh hame dekhna padta hai ki kya uska Karan hai kya motional troubles ki wajah se hai kya Woh physical troubles ke wajah se hai in saari cheezo ko rule out karne ke baad Jab unka homeopathic medicine select Hota Hai hundred percent cure Lekar Aata Hai. Conventionally iska Ek hi treatment hai hormone replacement therapy HRT Jisko aajkal contraceptive pills Diya jata hai and externally prepared hormone Diya jata hai Chahe wo artificially ho ya Kisi animal Se Nikal Gaya Ho woh Body Me Diya Jata Hai Jis Ke nuksan Hai.

1) ye artificial hai

2) Usse kya hoga ki jo Body Aap Ki Thodi Si Bhi hormone bana rahi Hogi maan lijiye hormonal imbalance hai kuch hormone kam ban ra hai, kuch jyada ban raha hai jo aap externally Hormone dalenge Body mein usse aapka internal jo thoda bhi hormone ban raha tha nahi Banega aur aap us medicines ke addict hojaenge.

Homeopathy is time par aap sath mein lete hain ya sirf homeopathy lete Hain tab bhi iska hundred percent ilaaj ho sakta hai. Homeopathy main aapko advice Karunga ki because natural hai number one. Number 2 uska koi Side Effects nahi aa hai. Yahi kaaran Hai Jiski wajah se Ye number one medicine hai aur aapki family mein kisi ko bhi PCOD hota hai girl child ko hota hai ya wife ko hota hai aap zaroor consult Kijiye homeopathy doctor ko aapke paas ka doctor hai ya aap mere ko bhi consult kar sakte hain aur aaj kal ek tabboo hai ki female problem hone ki wajah se gynecologist hi dekh sakte hain. Aisa bilkul mat socho. Aap Kisi bhi homoeopathy doctor Chahe Woh male ya female ho aap discuss Kijiye, khulke discuss kijiye, family ke sath jaiye aur discus kijiye, Kaise aapko help Karta Hai, jaroor help Karega. Wind off karne ke liye main bolunga ki aap apna Lifestyle acha Kare, aap apni life mein yoga, exercise or meditation add Kare Jise physically aapka sehatmand Ho Aur Hormonal imbalance kam ho aur dusri is homeopathy ko fayda hota hai ki homoeopathy aapko completely cure kar sakti hai.

App mere se be consult kar sakte online lybrate ke through aur aap directly Bhi Apne homoeopathy ke paas Ja sakte hain.

If HIV test is negative you need not worry about Jaundice. Jaundice needs to be treated separately. Jaundice can be very effectively treated by homeopathy.

Know Everything About Male Menopause

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Know Everything About Male Menopause

Male menopause also called ‘andropause’ is characterized by changes in the male hormone 'testosterone’ due to age. Other names that are used to describe similar symptoms are ‘androgen deficiency’, ‘testosterone deficiency’ and ‘late-onset of hypogonadism’.

What Is Male Menopause?

Because men do not go through a well-defined period referred to as menopause, some doctors refer to this problem as androgen (testosterone) decline in the aging male -- or what some people call low testosterone. Men do experience a decline in the production of the male hormone testosterone with aging, but this also occurs with conditions such as diabetes (read more about diabetes problem). Testosterone is a hormone which is produced in the testes and it plays an important role in a man’s body; from regulating sex drive, increasing energy levels in the body, maintaining muscle mass to bringing about changes during puberty. Male menopause differs from female menopause in a few aspects and not all men are affected by it. However, this condition doesn’t cause impotence.

Symptoms:

Along with the decline in testosterone, some men experience symptoms that include:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Weakness
  3. Depression
  4. Sexual problems

Symptoms: 

The symptoms of male menopause are low energy levels, fatigue, depression and an inability to focus on anything. You will lose muscle tone coupled with an increase in body fat; the muscles in the body also tend to become weak. Some other symptoms are decreased bone density and breast development. 

Causes:

There are no specific causes as such, but aging is known to play a major role in male menopause. Certain lifestyle factors such as depression, stress and anxiety can cause some symptoms of male menopause to show up such as erectile dysfunction. Not eating a balanced diet and not following a proper exercise regimen and drinking or smoking excessively can trigger symptoms of male menopause.

Treatment:

Once the diagnosis is done, the doctor will chart out a treatment course. The common treatment for male menopause is to make certain changes in your lifestyle – eating a well-balanced diet, getting optimal sleep and exercising regularly. Making these types of changes has been proven to dramatically improve the health of men affected by male menopause.

Another option is hormone replacement therapy, wherein synthetic or artificial testosterone is administered to the body. It is similar to performance e    nhancers in terms of its side effects. So it is advised to consult your doctor and take a well-founded decision on whether to go ahead with the hormone replacement therapy.

Ayurvedic Management of Male Menopause:

  1. Manage your emotions through yoga and meditation.
  2. Attend couple’s counselling and talk your doctor about your issues. Educate yourself and your family about the condition.
  3. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
  4. Maintain your weight by doing regular exercise and diet.
  5. Do regular body oil massage with Ksheerabala taila, Sesame oil or Mahanarayana taila.
  6. You can undergo Ayurvedic treatments like Shirodhara, Rasayana and Vajikarana chikitsa to rejuvenate your body and enhance your sexual health.

Ayurvedic medicines like Ashwagandha, Kapikachhu, Shilajit, Gokshura, Musli, Amalaki, Punarnava, Chandraprabha vati, etc. are very beneficial.

I'm having a problem of foreskin on my penis so please tell me the solution of it my age is 21.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I'm having a problem of foreskin on my penis so please tell me the solution of it my age is 21.
What is the exact problem with your foreskin ..Most probably if I guess it could be that your foreskin is attached to the head of penis and you have a problem to retract it.The problem is called Phimosis.The solution is Stretching exercises, when erect just pull it back as far as it will go and hold for 5 mins. Do this a few times daily.. in the shower helps, and you should see results within days/weeks. Could also try, if its possible to pull back a bit, pull it back, grab the glans( top cap of penis) with two fingers and roll the foreskin up over the two fingers as far as it will go (when the ring of skin turns white). hold it there for 5 mins. Lubricant helps with this!. . It's fairly common, and this should help. Also try rubbing vitamin E around the top and inside the foreskin, which may help elasticate it. If it's more serious, you may need a preputialplasty (alternative to circumcision but with no loss of looks, senstivity or anything, and is less painful with a fast recovery rate. With a preputialplasty:they make a small incision vertically then horizontally in your foreskin, and stitch it up to have more space for your glans to appear without a total circumcision. But with exercise for 5 minutes daily it will be ok.

Dear Lybrate user. Yes. Sugar cane juice is helpful. Honey and garlic, together, do have much positive effect on sexual performance. Garlic and honey are aphrodisiacs. Honey contains boron, which may regulate hormone levels, and nitric oxide, which is released in the blood during arousal. Garlic bulb is incredibly high in allicin, a compound that increases blood flow in a serious way, yielding increased sexual stamina and wild energy. Both of them, taken together after food, morning and evening can provide you much sexual benefits. Bananas are Good for your heart and for your blood flow, and therefore bananas are recommended food for penis enlargement and increased sexual stamina. It contains many vitamins and minerals suitable for penis enlargement and sexual stamina. Take care.
