What are the causes of facial nerve problem and bell's palsy and what is the solution cure from these?

Physiotherapist, Surat
Facial and bell's paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. There can be many reasons for it. It can be due to any infection in nerve, any head injury, tumor, stroke, high bp leading to hemorrhage, any auto immune diease, the most common is ear infection or inflammation directly affecting your facial nerve as it passes through your ear. In physio we have very good treatment plan include: muscle stimulator - stimulate / strength the weak muscles those are paralysed. Facial soft tissue manipulation, facial exercises, pnf, etc so in general I would advice you to go for some treatment if possible visit some neurophysio who will guide you your treatment plan according to your problem. Please follow: 1. Facial exercises like eyebrow raising, drawing, wrinkling, deep breath from nose, smiling, ballon filling, jaw moments etc 2. Using your fingers massage the entire area of massage with applying any cream or talcum. Guidance required from physio. 3. If not that weak then you can apply hot pack also for 10 mins. Precautions: 1. Take eye care. Wash properly. 2. Use goggles when moving out from home. 3. Take mouth care. 4. While drinking or eating take care. 5. Guidance from neurophysio for life styl modifications. 6. If speech disturbed take opinion from speech therapist. Please consult me if you do not understand any point. Get well soon. Take care.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I do not understand why you have restricted movements still if you have done proper rehabilitation protocol after you dislocation episode, anyways we will require a fresh mri of your shoulder to understand whats wrong. Also you should not be having persistent swelling of your ankles, is there any history of previous injury because you are saying that it is due to lax ligaments. Anyways we will actually need stress x rays of your involved ankle to see whats the kind of instability it is causing? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear,Masturbation is a very common behavior among men and women. Having a sexual pleasure or orgasm without a partner of opposite sex is called ?Solosex? or ?Auto erotic sexual behavior. When a person feels this kind of solo orgasm in awakened state, then its called ?Masturbation. Masturbation habit slowly kills the physical, mental and sexual health because masturbation is an unnatural and abnormal activity. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Home Remedy- 1-Onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. 2-Take about 5-10 gm root powder of Ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Treatment- apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better.

Homeopath, Faridabad
First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- take gelesemium 200, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. In case of high uncontrollable fever, don't panic you should do cold sponging to lower down the temperature. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

I feel depressed on my bed with my wife during sex so how can I increase my sex power.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, There are two different categories that show up when one have low sexual energy complain. There may be difficulty in achieving the feeling of arousal. One may get aroused for a short period and so they fail in maintaining this aroused state of mind. This is the second condition and this also creates trouble for some. Moderate exercise can help in increasing sex energy to a great extent. Simple push-ups or 30 minutes of regularly walking or jogging can work wonders in building sex power. Sex and exercise both make a person sweat, increase blood circulation, diminish stress and burn calories. They make one feel better and confident. Exercise helps in making sex more enjoyable and satisfying. The exercises of the legs, backs and chest enhance the release of testosterones in men and women. It also increases the flexibility in one’s body in order to accommodate in different positions. Men need cardio exercises in order to have a sustained erection… Oysters, almonds, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, and walnuts are best sources of zinc. Nuts and seeds are also rich sources of arginine, an amino acid which is essentially required for healthy erections and sperm production. Fruits like apples, apricots, blueberries, cherries, papayas etc. Play a vital role in keeping the body sexually healthy. Fresh and leafy green vegetables like asparagus, carrots, cucumber, and spinach are the best source for most vitamins and minerals. Dates – Eat 5 – 7 dates everyday for a week to see surprising sexual stamina. Aswagandha – It is a gift for Indians. Consume Aswagandha lehyam (paste) 10 grams for instant sexual stamina. You can find the result in few hours. You can find aswagandha in the nearest ayurvedic shop. Chocolates – There are antioxidants in chocolates. These are good for the body as it increases the excitement. The chemical called phenylethalmine is there in these foods and enhances the sexual drive of the people. Pumpkin seeds – These are rich in zinc and this is good for boosting the sperms of men. This again improves the deficiency of testosterone in some men. The seeds are full of vitamins that give energy to the libido of any human being. Fishes – The sea water fishes are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and these helps in improving the libido. This enhances the sexual stamina and the sexual urge for men and women. Eating of fish can diminish depression and give new hope and bright mood. The brain function is also improved with the omega 3 fatty acids and hence is good for all over improvement of sexual urge. Some such fishes are – trout, Tuna, Sardines, Herring, Anchovies, Mackerel and Wild Salmon. Onions – These are vegetables with aphrodisiac properties to help the libido. If you think you have low libido, you can take this by crushing them and frying them in butter. You must add honey with the golden onions and eat them in empty stomach for improving the sexual drive. Oysters – Oysters have been used since a long time as a love drug. Casanova and Cleopatra had one thing in common. They had a love for oysters. Oysters have been known to have been used by the Italian romancer to seduce women. In fact, research has proven that oysters are a good love drug. Oysters improve the levels of dopamine in the body and they are said to boost the libido levels both in men as well as in women. Oysters are rich in zinc, which is essential for the production of healthy sperms. Watermelon –Some experts have touted watermelon as the latest love drug. Since it contains citrulline amino acids, it helps relax the very blood vessels that enhance the sex drive in a person. If you want to get your partner in the mood, then prepare a watermelon sorbet and share it with him. Asparagus –Not only does asparagus have a suggestive shape, but it is also rich in a Vitamin B known as folate! This fosters the production of histamine, which is important for a healthy sex drive both in men as well as in women. If you want, you can even grow your own asparagus or buy it fresh from the Farmer’s Market. Avocados ­ – Not only are avocados known as fruits that increase the brain levels, but they are now being touted as love drugs. Celery –Eating celeries may be the last thing you would think of to boost the libido, but research goes to show that it increases the pheromone levels in the sweat of a person and makes the males more attractive to the females. Figs – Legend has it that figs were a hot favourite with Queen Cleopatra. The ancient Greeks also thought it improves the fertility levels of a person. Banana –This fruit that is rich in potassium can help boost your libido and your sexual performance. Red hot chilli peppers –Naturally hot and spicy, this food is known to boost both the libido of a person, as well as their sexual performance. Eggs –Eggs can help balance the hormone levels of a person and improve the sexual performance of a person by decreasing their stress levels. A healthy lifestyle that keeps a person active with proper food and adequate exercise help in improving one’s sex power. Diet plays a big role in one’s sex life. Healthier the person better is the sex life. Sex life reflects the lifestyle one leads. Do pranayama (in yoga) everyday for excellent sexual stamina. Consult a psychologist to help you out better.

I am 27 years old I frequently get hyper acidity attack, back ache, neck pain and head ache. Please help.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Here are tips to prevent Acidity/GERD. -Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension. -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Stress may increase stomach acids -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up -Do daily walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe.. -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief. -For severe cases,tablet Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.
