Take sanjeevani ras vati twice a day with warm water. Take pranacharya jwar nigraha capsule and punarnavadi mandoor 1-1 twice a day with warm water. Avoid salt as more as possible. Drink luke warm water. Wipe your body with clean towel.

I have lipoma and I have about 100's on full body how can I get rid of them completely as some of them are cosmetically disturbing and some are painful as they are near veins.

Surgical excision is the treatment of choice. But it can not be performed on 100s of lipoma. Some fat dissolving injections have been tried but not very successful. So remove only those which are cosmetically disfiguring.

My mother was having spondylitis on her spine since 2009 and it was cured by 2012 after taking the medicines. But again in 2015 she felt the pain and we took her to the orthopaedic. But this time she did not recover. And after spending few month being suggested by the orthopaedic we took her to the neurologist. .and he ran few tests including MRI Scan .and said that there is some minor issues. And prescribed two drugs named steriocort and Oslol tr 40. Which she took for 37 days. But on 38th day she started to feel very weak. Her appetite was very less. vomited 3 times. Always felt drowsy. .urination got hampered .could not pass stool. And felt very uneasy. And eventually on 44th day situation got worse and we eventually admitted her in a hospital under a neuro surgeon. And her situation got worse as she could not walk now properly. Then the concerned doctor asked to stop the medicine immediately and asked for few more tests. But on next to next day he said there is no neurological problems and referred to a general physician. .then we got one founding that her sodium level was 114 when we took her first time to the neurologist 46 days back. And the doctor also said that haemoglobin level is very low I. E.8.6, and platelet count was very less at 66000. Then the doctor also said that she is having cough in her chest. And she started her treatment. .and we found that patient was recovering. After admission she was not talking. Always kept her eyes closed. But on 2nd day we saw that she was opening her eyes. And also started communication with others. And she started taking normal foods. But on 3rd day we found her totally different. .as if she is having some mental disorder. .her hands were moving in some wayward directions. Speech was not in order. Keeping her eyes always closed. Could not walk. Taking food was also stopped. Seeing that we consulted with the concerned doctor and she said that she is OK. .and there is no problem as such. This is not a very sounding problem. After taking to home she could get better. But today is the second day. Her situation is getting worsening. .As psychiatric patient. Please suggest what to do? As we are confused.

Some males never have wet dreams, or have only one or two their whole lives. The old theory was that sperm built up in the male and if it did not come out in masturbation or other sexual activity it would have to come out in some other way: namely wet dreams. According to that theory someone who was masturbating or having other regular sexual outlets would not have a buildup of semen and wet dreams would not occur. But the new evidence is that it is not so clear-cut as all that. Evidently the body can and does reabsorb unused sperm and the occurrence of wet dreams is not so closely related to the absence of other sexual outlets as was once thought. Some males stop having wet dreams about the time they start masturbating. Others only have wet dreams during times in their lives when they are very sexually active. Still others have frequent wet dreams no matter what they do, while yet others never or almost never have them. Will you have more wet dreams if you stop masturbating or have fewer if you do masturbate? maybe. Maybe not. A think that really shoots down the old sperm-build-up theory is that it is now recognized that some women have sexual dreams leading to orgasm. This doesn't tell us a lot about the function of sexual dreams, but it does indicate that getting rid of excess sperm is not the rlght answer. There is no need to have sex or masturbate to ejaculation for health reasons. The body can happily cope with unused sperm, with no impact on fertility or sex drive.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, this occurs due to disturbed blood circulation. An imbalance of blood (more) coming down to the part and blood (less) returning back from there. You must do contrast bath, two times a day. Take two buckets full of hot and cold (ice in it) water. Put both the feet (up to calves) first in hot for one minute (move the toes and ankles actively) and then in cold for one minute (move the parts actively). To be done for about 15-20 minutes. After few minutes when hot water becomes cold. Add boiling water to make it hot again and add ice to the other bucket (more the difference in temp. Better is the result). After it is done. Massage the affected side from the foot down. Above (proximal) to the calf with mustard (or any oil) for 5 minutes. Wipe them and apply elastic bandages support 4" x 2 from toes to the calf. The elastic support is to be worn whole day and should be taken out only at night. Keep two pillows under the leg at night. Keep on doing the exercises (seek advice of a physio. Avoid keeping the foot hanging. If unavoidable. Keep on moving the toes actively up and down while sitting. The problem should settle in 4-6 weeks. Always wear the elastic support from waking to sleeping time and never allow the swelling to occur even for few minutes. Because the fluid causing the swelling makes home in the tissues of the affected part (foot and ankle. We have to get that home obliterated and collapsed by observing the advised discipline. Else it finds it's way again and the swelling persists for longer time. Take care. You can revert back to me after 10-15 days with the result of the advised ordeal. To be done religiously. Take care.

I am 39 year old male. I snore very loud while sleeping by open mouth. What should I do? please advice.

Snoring occurs due to resistance to the airway that may be due to local factors like enalarged tonsil, adenoids, fatty neck, bulky tongue. Now a days many modalities are available to find out the underlying cause and treatment of snoring like laser, coblation etc. So consult an ent specialist for this. Do steam inhalation and use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 for 2 weeks. U will feel better.

no treatments can cure the hep a, b, or c except interferon therapy which has very low success rate, many side effects and limited applicability. Lft test is prescribed to check liver function to be sure body is healing. Dont drink alcohol as it is very harmful to liver. Dont take prescription or over-the-counter drugs without consulting doctor. Viral count can be reduced using antiviral drugs like tenofovir or lamivudine based upon the condition and history of the patient also get tested for other types of hepatitis. Get vaccinated for the type of hepatitis that you havent been exposed to or you may get multiple hepatitis which finally leads to liver cancer. Untreated hepatitis finally may lead to cirrhosis or cancer of liver hence immediate treatment of hepatitis is recommended do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello Akshay. As per your history it appears that you are having a deviated nasal septum as a cause of persistent nasal obstruction. Since you are also having allergic rhinitis , coexisting sinus pathology and other nasal conditions should be ruled out (and treated ,) by clinical history , examination and appropriate radiological examination , before going for surgery. Constant mouth breathing leads to dryness of the throat and also predisposes an individual to recurrent throat infections.

Do let me know which diet (veg/non veg) you prefer? a therapeutic diet in itself can solve many of your problems. Dietary therapy prescribed by a registered dietitian is needed. You need to provide daily food intake example. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed. Eat a balanced diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to I strongly accommodate the patient's own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. I can also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals and help heal many of your lifestyle diseases. Check my health tips on lybrate to see more details on healthy diet for your problems. After assessing your personal challenges to weight management, one can recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts
