There are good homoeopathic medicines for varicose problem. I will tell some simple tips as an accessory management. 1. Reduce your weight if you are obese. 2. Avoid standing continuously for more than 20 mins. 3. Keep your legs raised while sitting. 4. Avoid taking heavy weights and loads. 5. Keep your legs above two pillows while laying in bed. 6. Use creepe bandaging. Homoeopathic medicine like pulsatilla hamamelis, calc flour, magnifiera etc can completely make the valves of veins open and make the blood flow normal. If you not taken varicose veins as a major thing at the initial stage it can lead into varicose ulcers, or any heart disease in the future.

You are a little young for hypertension. Maybe, there is a cause which could be corrected. You need further tests: Color doppler imaging of renal arteries. Check for Aortic Co- arct. Check endocrine diseases. See a, Endocrinologist. Show him my opinion.

Her triglyceride level is high and the cholesterol level is also in just higher range. What medicine is required?

Her triglyceride level is high and the cholesterol level is also in just higher range. What medicine is required?
High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I take bp medicines and have borderline sugar. I work a lot on computers. I wear specs with power 1.75. Sometimes vision gets hazy and I can only see outlines. After taking rest for about 1 hr, it becomes normal. What do I do?

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine, diploma clinical cardiology
Cardiologist, Jaipur
I think you need to take adequate rest in between atleast for 15 minutes after a hour of continuous work. Don't do continuous work on computer. Get your bp and sugars checked timely. Be regular at your family doctors office and take treatment as per his advice. Lastly 3 things for healthy living 1. Positive thinking 2. Healthy eating 3. Daily walking. Thanks

Dear lybrateuser, - Your chest pain is due to muscular or bony problem - do not bend, lift weight, exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation on affected area - apply pain relief gel three times a day lightly on the painful area - take pain relief tablet three times a day after meals - if not much relief then consult a doctor as you may require an x- ray to be done.

Itching around stitches has nothing to do with stitches which are 1 year old. Look for other causes and also at other places also. Apply powder clotrimazole (absorb, mycoderm-c) liberally on affected area, no ointments during summers, problem if infective will spread to other areas due to sweat + ointment. Powder will seal the area. Do write back after a week, if relief, otherwise seek opinion of a skin doctor.

At age 28, when I randomly went for a health check up. I was bit surprised and shocked. My BP was on a higher side. 160+ / 84+ Doctor advised me for a detailed investigation/diagnosis of it frm a specialty hospital. My question here is what are the reason to have such BP at dis age ? I don't have any major health issues till now. What do I need to control this from now on ? What diet should I follow and does over masturbation (5-6 times a week) cause this BP to b always on higher side? Please advise.

Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol

BHMS
Homeopath, Kolkata
Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol: Cholesterol is a wax like chemical which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:

  1. Heart disease
  2. Stroke
  3. Atherosclerosis
  4. peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol: This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the bloodstream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

For Women  - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
For Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides:
Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body, but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are:

  • Lack of physical activity
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Excesses in alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Bad diet and others

Thus the good cholesterol vs bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in lifestyle and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad.

I got heart attack on 25th dec. doctors did angography and then angioplasty, they put two stents now on 20th april. I again did angogram as i was unable to walk. It shows there is blockage inside both the stents. Is there a solution for this in ayurveda?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bundi
Opening of blockage inside stents by ayurveda has not been reported anywhere so its not advisable to comment. However blockage inside vessels has been tried in ayurveda and long term treatment has often been heard with success. For details your reports and recent history needed to be known.

I have high LDL cholesterol and know if you can suggest any homeopathic medicine.

BHMS
Homeopath, Bangalore
Increased cholesterol has to be addressed constitutionally. Take cholestrinum 6x 2 pills morning; It is better to meet a homeopathic doctor and take constitutional treatment. Take one teaspoon of flax seeds daily.
