I am doing weight training. Is creatine supplement safe? If so which one I should take.
Yes, It's safe if you take it properly and follow the guidelines on the supplement jar. Optimum Nutrition is a good brand to take. Also drink a lot of water as creatine promotes water retention in your cells. try to aim for 5-6 litres per day.

I want to gain weight .I'm 21 now .but my weight is below 50. What should I do to gain weight.

I want to gain weight .I'm 21 now .but my weight is below 50. What should I do to gain weight.
Hye, Thanks for the query. Weight is not dependent on age. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1. Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2. Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3. Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day. 4. Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5. Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, milk shakes etc. 6. Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milk or fruit juice with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7. Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) 8. Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9. Be patient with yourself.

Feeling weak is a symptom of thyroid as the metabolism is very disturbed. Besides the medicine she is taking, its important that she takes a healthy diet and try to lose weight if she is over weight. Walk should be a part of daily routine and lifestyle change should be targeted on.

Whether Radio Frequency Therapy can get rid of pain of knee in Osteoarthritis. Is it better than Injection (lubrication)

Whether Radio Frequency Therapy can get rid of pain of knee in Osteoarthritis. Is it better than Injection (lubrication)
In my opinion radio frequency should be reserved for old patients who are not fit for surgery. It works by ablating the nerves which although will give pain relief, has a potential of aggravating the arthritic process (neuropathic joint). Lubricant injection, on the other hand is a safer option.

Increase your caloric intakes by about 500 to 1000 Calories per day. Extra 500 Calories/day will help you gain up to one pound in one week. Eat frequently – Eat your three main meal (breakfast, lunch Dinner) spaced about 5 hours apart. In addition eat two to three snacks a day in between meals. Snacks should be of high calorie such as milk shakes, yogurt, high carbohydrate food- banana. Eat more complex carbohydrates like whole-grain breads, pasta and Brown Rice etc. Never skip your breakfast. Include one eggs and fruit juice to your breakfast. Eat bigger than normal portions for your regular meals. Eat food with higher calories, Moderate fats, Higher Protein, Higher Fiber, Higher nutrition. Choose high-quality protein sources such as eggs, meat, fish, milk, seeds, protein supplements etc. Your body needs 0.8gm/body-weight (kg)/day of protein to build new muscle. Since most of the calories for weight gain come from carbohydrates and fats, do not replace them with protein. Eat starchy vegetables (Potatoes, Peas, Cauliflower, Pumpkin, Sweet potatoes). Consume nuts, calorie dense ripe fruits like Banana, dried fruits like dates as snack between meals. Eat the right kinds of fats. Avoid Transfats. Add healthy unsaturated fats in moderation such as olive and canola oil, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados to your diet. Do not drink water before meals. After meals, wait about 10 minutes before drinking water. Beverages can help you gain a weight too. If it is possible, drink shakes, milk, juice, etc. Instead of tea, coffee and diet sodas. Avoid alcoholic beverages. Its High calorie with minimum nutrition. Do 30 minutes of resistance training. Weight training helps to convert the extra calories into muscle, hence add some extra pounds to your body. Do some compound movements like body-weight squat, push-ups, row or deadlift. Aim to lift a heavy enough weight that you’re fatiguing within the 8-12 rep range, completing a total of 2-4 sets for each exercise. Do NOT engage in aerobic exercises (Running Stationary Bicycling). Aerobic exercise help you lose body fat (weight loss). You may lose more weight than gain weight. Keep track. If possible, keep a food journal to track your weight gain progress. Keep a record of your daily calorie consumption. Weigh yourself at the end of each week to see your development. Keep doing this each week until you start seeing a noticeable progress.

Hello, The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on these points which helps in right way without harming your body if you don’t have any medical condition. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day.Protein shakes will help you to gain muscle mass, particularly if you're working out. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. This is where protein shakes and bars really come in handy. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 1month.

Chamomile possesses antispasmodic properties and is also a great remedy for digestion related problems such as gas, dyspepsia and indigestion. It stimulates appetite which, in turn, enables one to put on weight by eating more. Drink chamomile tea on a regular basis for quick results. Peppermint tea also works wonders.

Hi. Masturbation can't be the causative factor for acne or oily skin as such. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Use Bakson's Apricot scrub at least once a week.
