Am sweating too much even if in normal hot condition, but I can adjust with too much cold climate.

Dear lybrate-user! too much sweating is common, as your body naturally maintaining the thermoregulation. The too much sweating- your body getting cool automatically. You no need to panic about it. 1. Avoid too much in sun 2. Take two times bath regularly 3. Take more water fruits like watermelon, grapes, musambi and lemon 4. Take more butter milk 5. Avoid too much fatty and spicy food thank you

Why You Can Get a Slipped Disc Problem?

Why You Can Get a Slipped Disc Problem?

Are you prone to slipped disc problem? + the ideal way to treat it

A slipped disc, also known as a prolapsed disc or herniated disc, is the term given to the phenomenon that occurs when a cartilaginous disc found between the vertebrae in the spine becomes slightly displaced or protrudes, thereby pressing on the nerves in the adjacent areas and causing back pain.
This happens when the soft inner part of the disc, known as nucleus pulposus, bulges out through a weakness in the exterior part of the disc. A prolapsed disc usually occurs in the lower region of the spine and can be of varying sizes. There might even be the development of inflammation around the disc in some cases.

Who is likely to get affected?
Most cases of herniated disc occur in patients between the ages of 30 and 50. The number of men affected is twice as many as the number of women.
Although the root cause of this problem is not yet known, there are a number of factors that may trigger it. These factors include working at a job that requires a lot of lifting, an occupation that involves remaining in a seated position for a long time, weight-bearing sports, obesity, smoking habits and increasing age.

Effective ways of treating the problem
The different methods that are commonly used to treat the problem are:

  • Medications - There are many different kinds of medicines that are effective in providing relief. These include painkillers, muscles relaxants, anti-inflammatory pills, etc.
  • Spinal injections - A number of spinal injections are used to treat slipped discs. The injection is done at the opening where the inflamed nerve roots are found and reduces pain, swelling and irritation in the area.
  • Radiofrequency ablation - This procedure makes use of an electrical current produced by radio waves to reduced pain and sensitivity in the affected area.
  • Ozone discectomy - As opposed to the surgical removal of the prolapsed disc, this new process makes use of an ozone-oxygen mixture that is injected into the spine to treat the problem. Many international studies have proved its superiority to traditional methods and surgeries.

Those affected by this problem are advised to keep exercising and continuing with their everyday activities as best as possible.

*Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. The problem can be treated by homeopathy and without adverse effects. Take Nux vomica 200 ---once daily in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.

For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy for pimples can also help a lot. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems reply back for private consultation.

Hi lybrate-user. Corns require surgical excision if painful. This should be followed by swithching to comfortable footwear with adequqte padding. Also ,the condition needs to be differentiated from plantar warts which also require specific treatment with lasers or topical mesications. The above prescribed medicines are just symptomatic and would not cure the corns and calluses. All the best.

The stomach needs to be refuelled every 90 minutes. Veggie or fruit salad, or oats or whole wheat biscuits are some of the good sources. After your breakfast time, there is a time gap of 3 hrs. Due to this, you feel weak and dizzy; thus, brain does not function properly.

The best ayurvedic treatment for acidity is Sy. Bhunimbadi kwath 15 ml thrice a day after food and avipattikar churan 3 gm in between meals thrice a day. Do this for 1 month and contact me with results. You could also have licorice tea for better comfort. Avoid spices, salt, chilly, tea, coffee and alcohol.
