Warm milk boiled with ginger and haldi including ghee and nuts every day at breakfast and before going to bed. Avoid oily or junk food. Sour products e. G. Pickles etc, sweet. Follow regular some ayurveda medicines as bellow. 1- arogyavardhini vati. 1 tab chandra prabha vati. 1 tab rajah prawartini vati. 1 tab laxamana loh. 2tabs twice daily with warm water after meals. 2- laxamanarist. 15 ml dashmularist. 15 ml with water after meals.

Most common cause is diminished hormone in peri-menopausal age. Best is to consult a gynaecologist. Easy to treat by that instead of developing stress.

Yes, she might have high bp in 2nd pregnancy and this can complicate the health of her baby and herself. But remember, we treat many such patients successfully in day to day practice. So, she must consult gynecologist before planning pregnancy to have some check up, stop telma 40 and replace it with safer drugs (as telma can affect baby badly). She may need some other drugs and also constant monitoring throughout pregnancy. So, pregnancy must be well planned.

Many times we advise to patients,relatives, and friends to have a routine of daily exercise.Light moderate and severe exercise are advised according to age group,general health,heart disease,BP,Diabetes etc.

Light exercise means walking at least 30 mt for 5 days a week.This should be brisk according to capacity and person should sweat.

Moderate exercise is running ,jogging cycling,jumping ,swimming etc this should be again for 30 mt minimum and a good amount of sweating should be there.

Heavy exercise is weight lifting,running fast,jumping from good height etc.Heavy sweating is there.

Morning walk is a light exercise and the zist for everyone.It tone up your body and increase your resistance.

Make a routine of morning walk and 1 game of your liking can save you from many problems.
