If you often feel tired, exhausted, fatigued, stressed or suffer from aches and pains or other chronic ailments, we have the ultimate solution. If you seek a deep level of luxurious pampering, relaxation and revitalization to carry your body, mind and spirit to another plane then Panchakarma is for you!

With much love and care Arogyam Ayurveda designed this therapy package to eliminate the internal causes of diseases and release the burden on your whole being. Large quantities of toxic bi-products are formed in the body as a result of numerous factors, including the body’s continuous metabolic processes, wrong body habits, wrong food habits, incompatible combination of food items, suppression of body urges, emotional imbalances, etc..

If your elimination system is functioning well most of these toxins are eliminated naturally. However, if it’s mal-functioning damaging toxins are deposited in various parts of the body. This toxic load results in the impairment of the Doshas, Dhatus (tissues), etc.. Consequently, normal functioning of the body systems are also impaired and we feel the many symptoms of toxicity and general ill health.

Hello lybrate-user, you wrote that your penis is 4.5 inch in erectile position, which is normal in size, and you should not bother for that and be anxiety free, regarding early ejaculation, it is always early due to first excitation and can be prolonged in successive attempts of intercourse, which you can notice in 2nd and 3rd attempt of your intercourse. I advice do not take any medicine for increasing the size of penis or prolongation time of ejaculation, these are natural and normal processes improves automatically. For this you can take high protein diet regularly, so you will feel much improvement in your problems. So you should be tension free and take care of yourself. Good luck.

Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

As per the data given by you you are 87 kg and at 6 feet height, this is ok, but it is in excess: height 183 cm [6 ft 0 inch (es)] weight87 kg [191.8 lb] your body mass index (bmi) is 25.97 your ideal weight range based on your bmi is between 61.95 kg and 83.39 kg even if you take an average of this, it will be 71kg, so by this you will realise that you are overweight. And when anyone is having excess weight, it is due to body fat. Breast tissue is basically just body fat accumulation. In a lady there are glands in the breast which are there for milk production. As a mammal we have breasts but he functional milk production tissue is absent in the male. So do not worry. What you have is excess fat and thats accumulated usually in tummy, buttocks and thighs and around chest. If you go for exercises, where in you have weight loss and muscle development, then you will burn out the fat and chisel your body into the shape you want. So go for weight loss workout and let it be a combination of weight training and cardiovascular exercises so that you gain both weight (fat) loss and a good form and physique to look better. Estrogens are usually not present in large quantities in men. And they do not cause breast development in men! small amounts of estrogen that are present in male body play a role in sexual drive and hence is necessary. So there is no need to worry about" getting rid of all estrogen" in your body.

Ideally Masturbation should not be more than 2-3 times a week for any adult. It will keep you sexually active. Too much of everything is bad as always. Along with this schedule of masturbation you need proper diet which should consist of fresh fruits , fresh vegetables and one hour of jogging early morning every day. This will keep you fit for future activity also. Relaxxxx....

Treatment can include simple excision, endoscopic removal, or liposuction and it depends on the size, number and location of lipomas. Simple excision is usually done for superficial lipomas and is done under anesthesia by giving and excision and removing the contents of the lipoma. Then these contents are sent for histopathological examination. Liposuction has more recurrence rate but in surgical incisional removal, since it is removed completely, including the capsule, the recurrence rate is less.
