Apply aloevera gel on your face. Wash your face with moisture base face wash and cold water. Drink plenty of water and fruits. Test Your TSH levels and LFT levels and get back to me after that.

Hi looks like you have problem in your breasts. First of all for breast sonography that is ultrasound and also go for blood test for serum prolactin, don't worry it is curable, even if there is a growth in the breast it will be harmless like a fibroadenoma.

It takes about 8 weeks for internal stitches to heal, means the wound must be deep, even if stitched from outside but the needle along with thread passes through deeper areas. Heat therapy will help you become normal quicker.

Hi I am pregnant now 29th week, in my vagina milk white thick liquid is discharge, is it safe.
Mucoid discharge increases in pregnancy. If it is not associated with any vaginal itching or bad smell or different colour like green or yellow it is usually physiological. However if in doubt please see your obstetrician.

Hi, you need to see a infertility consultant at your place. Get yourself and husband examined and get done with all tests. So that some conclusion will come out and plan of action will be chalked out. Don't worry you are just 21. All the best!

I want to get pregnant I am taking fol g1 and lipogest I want to know how it works.
taking folic acid is good before planning pregnancy, as it helps in the formation of nervous system of the baby. but folic acid won't increase fertility. if you have tried for 1 year without a good news it is time to see a doctor

Cow Urine Therapy for Thyroid

Cow Urine Therapy for Thyroid

Cow Urine Therapy has been in practice for many health problems in India for centuries. In India, cow is a symbol of spirituality and cow urine is not only used in devotional practices, but also comes packed with a bunch of health benefits.

'Kamadhenu' is worshipped for thousands of years as the Goddess who fulfils desire. In Ayurveda, cow is considered as the mother of all entities as the products obtained from cow are beneficial to all mankind in many ways. The milk, urine, curd, ghee and dung obtained from cow are beneficial in different ways as food supplement and medicine. Cow urine or Gomutra destroys the poisonous effects of residues and makes body disease free. The medicinal usage of Panchgavya, especially cow urine is practiced in Ayurveda which is classified as complementary and alternative medicine.

The two Indian epics, Shushruta samhita and Charaka samhita, have described that the consumption of cow urine produces body warmth. In modern medical science, it has been well established that the thyroid hormones are responsible for producing body warmth. The oral administration of cow urine has thyroid stimulating effect and therapeutic value of urinary iodine present in the cow urine is immense. Cow urine or Gomutra contains iodine, which is easily absorbable from the gastrointestinal tract. The mean urinary iodine levels in dairy cows may vary from 79.2 to 94.8 micrograms of iodine per litre of urine depending upon their physiological conditions. Iodine is an essential element to produce thyroid hormones such as triiodothyronine and thyroxine. These are catabolic hormones that generate heat and cause body warmth. It has been proven that the cow urine contains iodine in required level for normal functioning of thyroid gland.

Urinary iodine concentration in cow urine varies depending upon its biological status and it could stimulate the patient's thyroid gland activity on oral administration of iodine. Thyroxine stimulates more oxygen utilization and heat production by many different cells of the body.

During iodine deficiency, the pituitary gland secretes enhanced amounts of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), which causes compensatory adjustment. This leads in the production of more extensive secretory epithelium which in turn will result in enlargement of the thyroid gland and loss of colloid material in the thyroid follicles. In this scenario, exogenous supplementation of iodine brings back the normal thyroid status.

The administration of cow urine, which contain good levels of iodine, can keep the thyroid gland activity on a better footing. We now have the support of scientific validation for the experience of warming up of the human body after consumption of cow urine or Gomutra.

20 days late on period, should I be worried. Negative home pregnancy test, 23 years old, married.
If your urine pregnancy test is negative you can confirm your pregnancy by ultrasonography. But you should not worry because delayed periods are also caused by many other reasons like anaemia ,anxiety, pcod etc. U can msg me on my consult for more details.

Hi lybrate-user. Light brown discharge should not be the reason to be tense. But since you have 8 weeks pregnancy better to go for sonography for wellbeing of the child inside. Get it done and it its normal nothing to worry.

Is he also interested to have a baby. The semen he gives you, flows out immediately or later. No harm. Anal sex is bad. Don`t entertain. If he has a lack of interest in sex or lack of erection at sex contact a sexologist.

Diet in pregnancy

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Diet in pregnancy
A pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.

Dengue fever – prevention, treatment and homeopathic medicines

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Dengue fever – prevention, treatment and homeopathic medicines
What is Dengue Fever?

Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease caused by any one of four closely related dengue viruses (DENV-1, -2, -3, and -4). Infection with one serotype of DENV provides immunity to that serotype for life, but provides no long-term immunity to other serotypes. Thus, a person can be infected as many as four times, once with each serotype.

Dengue viruses are transmitted from person to person by Aedes mosquitoes (most often Aedes aegypti) in the domestic environment.= What are the symptoms of Dengue Fever?

Classic dengue fever, or “break bone fever,” is characterized by acute onset of high fever 3–14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito.

Symptoms include

frontal headache,
retro-orbital pain,
myalgias,
arthralgias,
hemorrhagic manifestations,
rash, and
low white blood cell count

The patient also may complain of anorexia and nausea.

Acute symptoms, when present, usually last about 1 week, but weakness, malaise, and anorexia may persist for several weeks.

Some patients with dengue fever go on to develop dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), a severe and sometimes fatal form of the disease.

= Diagnosis of Dengue Fever

The diagnosis of dengue is usually made clinically.

The classic picture is high fever with no localising source of infection, a petechial rash with thrombocytopenia and relative leukopenia – low platelet and white blood cell count.

= Laboratory Diagnosis of dengue infection

One can get DENGUE FEVER ANTIBODY, IgM & IgG. This is a costly test. From Dr Lal Path Lab, it is costing nearly Rs. 1200.

= Aim of treatment of dengue fever:

• Relieving symptoms of pain.
• Controlling fever.
• Telling patients to avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory medications because they may increase the risk for hemorrhage.
• Reminding patients to drink more fluids, especially when they have a high fever.

= How to Treat Dengue Fever

• Drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest.
• Antipyretics to control temperature. Children with dengue are at risk for febrile seizures during the febrile phase of illness.
• Avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory medications because they increase the risk of hemorrhage. People generally take Brufen or Combiflam tablets in such fever conditions, these are to be avoided.
• Get platelet counts.

= Prevention of Dengue Fever

– There is no tested and approved vaccine for the dengue.
– Primary prevention of dengue is mosquito control.

= Dengue fever and Homeopathy medicines

In Homoeopathy, we have more than 20 medicines which can be taken based on different symptoms of fever in different stages. I would suggest you to please consult your homeopathic physician or homeopathic consultant for appropriate selection of the homeopathic drug for dengue fever.
