Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Sex tips for men with thick penises: Lubricate: It is very important for your lady to lubricate enough. Dryness can make it really painful to penetrate inside her. So, make sure you penetrate inside her only if she is lubricating enough. Use a lube if required: If your woman is not lubricating, you must use a lube to prevent dryness and ease the intercourse. Sex positions: Focus on the sex position as it matters a lot! You should not try few sex positions immediately. Once your woman gets used to your penis thickness and size, try sex positions that are deeper and spacious. Prefer classic sex positions like missionary till then. Even woman on top is preferable as the woman controls the depth and speed as per her comfort levels. Spread your legs: Spread your legs apart to allow deeper penetration, and also give enough space to make it less painful for the woman. If you join your legs and enter inside her, it will be really painful for the woman. Women can avoid pain by joining her legs closer. More foreplay: Women take time to get excited. So, indulge in foreplay to increase the sex drive. Women most particularly love foreplay and this can really turn them on! So for better sex and lubrication, have a proper foreplay before sex.

How to solve a my sugar problem but it's normal stage now any one instructions with me.
Hi, Blood sugar or type-2 diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life!

Dear lybrate-user, Lithium carbonate is a simple salt. It does not irritate the stomach too much if you got used to it, say after 1-2 weeks. You can even take it afternoon and night. After few months of getting used to the drug, you can take all 600 mg at night itself so that you will not forget. During the day you tend to postpone taking the tablet and may forget also. So take it in such a way that you will not forget. Only when you go for blood test to know the serum lithium level, you should take the tablet 12 hours before going to the lab.

All About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Delhi
All About Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in your pelvic area. These muscles support the organs in your pelvis like a sling. The organs in this area include the bladder, uterus (women), prostate (men), and rectum (the area at the end of the large intestine where your body stores solid waste). By contracting and relaxing these muscles, you control your bowel and bladder movements.

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?

When you are unable to control the muscles in your pelvic floor to have a bowel movement, it is called pelvic floor dysfunction. People with pelvic floor dysfunction contract these muscles rather than relax them. Because of this, they cannot have a bowel movement, or they have an incomplete one.

It is important to be aware of the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction as there is no comprehensive list of causes. However, it can be said that traumatic injuries to the pelvic area seems to have a rather higher preponderance among the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, which is also known as PFD. While giving birth to a child is an experience that is life changing, the potential downside is that it can be one of the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction in women!

Other symptoms include feeling the need to urinate often and then finding the process to be quite painful. Constipation which occurs in spite of a diet which contains enough roughage is a sign, as well, that it is about time that a person should schedule an appointment with the doctor.

Medication is a possible solution and is usually in the form of a muscle relaxant of a low intensity. However, it is great for a person who has the misfortune of having pelvic floor dysfunction to know that there are solutions which are completely bereft of the need of any form of medication!

Cure Pelvic Floor Dysfunction-

Reducing the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction can be quite simple, really. Warm baths and some exercises suggested on a subjective basis are quite common. This is a process called biofeedback.

Biofeedback aims to retrain the pelvic floor so that there is far better functioning. The success of this method is well known to a specialist, it has vastly improved the pelvic floor dysfunction conditions of more than 75% of the patients significantly!

The method works by observing the workings of the pelvic floor and then providing feedback regarding its coordination as it expands and contracts. Some of the many things which make this method truly great are that it is non-invasive and non-medical. As a matter of fact, taking into due account its success rate, people should really give it a shot before they try medication or surgery.

Surgery-

Surgery is said to be effective in the case of rectocele. Nevertheless, this is the last resort as it is always better to sort out such problems sans having to resort to surgery. Multidisciplinary approaches which involve fields such as psychology are good options. Pelvic floor dysfunction is something that is a pain to have, but it really need not be! If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

You may be having gastritis. When a person feels hungry, hcl acid is produced in the stomach to help digestion. If the food is not taken at that time, the acid damages the mucosal layer of the stomach and causes lot of discomfort in the body. Therefore one should eat at regular intervals. Do not consume spicy food. Eat in small quantities frequently (every 2hrs once) and take some antacid 15mins before eating which helps to neutralise the acid produced in the stomach.
