Immune system boosters

Immune system boosters
Want to fight off that illness that’s spreading around the office or your child’s school? Aside from practicing good hygiene, boosting your immune system is a great way to start.

With some exceptions, it’s best to get your vitamins and minerals from your food rather than in pill form. Here are some tips for getting the top vitamins your immune system needs to perform.

a. Vitamin C : You probably know about vitamin C’s connection to the immune system, but did you know you can get it from much more than just citrus fruits? Leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale, bell peppers, brussels sprouts, strawberries and papaya are also excellent sources. In fact, vitamin C is in so many foods that most people may not need to take supplements unless a doctor advises it.

b. Vitamin E: Like vitamin C, vitamin E can be a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection. Almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds are all high in vitamin E. So are spinach and broccoli if you prefer to increase your intake through meals rather than snacks.

c. Vitaamin B6 : This important vitamin — part of nearly 200 biochemical reactions in your body — is critical in how your immune system functions. Foods high in vitamin B6 include bananas, lean chicken breast, cold-water fish such as tuna, baked potatoes and chickpeas.

d. Vitamin A : For vitamin A, go colorful. Foods that are high in colorful compounds called carotenoids — carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, cantaloupe and squash — are all great options. The body turns these carotenoids into vitamin A, and they have an antioxidant effect to help strengthen the immune system against infection.

e. Vitamin D : As mentioned above, it’s best to get most of your vitamins from food, but vitamin D may be the exception to that rule. You can increase your intake through foods such as fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines) and fortified foods such as milk, orange juice and cereals. Many people have a hard time absorbing vitamin D from food, so if you have a vitamin D deficiency, talk to your doctor about supplements.

f. Folic acid : Folate is the natural form, and folic acid is the synthetic form, often added to foods because of its health benefits. To get more folate, add more beans and peas to your plate on a regular basis, as well as leafy green vegetables. You can also get folic acid in fortified foods (check the label) such as enriched breads, pastas, rice and other 100 percent whole-grain products.

g. Iron : helps your body carry oxygen to cells, comes in different forms. Your body can more easily absorb “heme iron,” which is abundant in lean poultry such as chicken and turkey, plus seafood. But never fear, vegetarians: You can get other forms of iron in beans, broccoli and kale.

h. Selenium seems to have a powerful effect on the immune system, including the potential to slow the body’s over-active responses to certain aggressive forms of cancer. You can find it in garlic, broccoli, sardines, tuna, brazil nuts and barley, among other foods.

i. Zinc : You can find zinc in oysters, crab, lean meats and poultry, baked beans (skip the kind with added sugar), yogurt and chickpeas. Zinc appears to help slow down the immune response and control inflammation in your body.

For disease specific diets you can consult me personally also.

Hello lybrate-user, As you mentioned you are suffering from Fibroadenoma of the breast. It happens due to hormonal changes at your age and it is very common. It need not to remove as it is completely innocuous. As in your case, it is painful, you can get it removed. The procedure itself will be minor and can be done under local anesthesia. There has been the role of evening primrose oil, which is available in chemist shops in capsule form, and to be started at 1gm 4 times a day with Vitamin E capsules. These remedies can be tried, but in your case, surgical removal would be rather simple and curative option. Good luck.

Pregnancy me ladies ko normal kya savdhaniya rakhni chahiye  
Day to day schedule me.
Healthy nutritious diet- please read my post on dietary advice in pregnancy. Adequate rest say for two hours at noon and 8 hours at night. Carry on day to day light housework if you are otherwise well. Continue with regular checks ups with your obstetrician and take iron and calcium supplements as advised.

She is suffering from severe dysmenorrhoea, which is not relieved by medications. You should get her ultrasound done asap and get examined by gynecologist. She may be suffering from either fibroid or endometriosis or ovarian cyst or even fibroids, which may need surgery for treatment. Ultrasound can diagnose all these conditions.

Occasional nipple discharge among non-pregnant women is common; it’s either normal or due to a minor condition. Most pathological conditions that cause nipple discharge are not serious and are easily treated.

When a baby is formed in the uterus, NOTHING can be done to it. By the data given by you, perhaps a sonography has revealed that of the 2 arteries and veins in the umbilical cord, only 1 artery is seen. While most of the times such a anomaly is NOT harmful, there are times when it may be associated with kidney and other anomalies, so se which scan is done for you. If anomaly scan is NOT done do it followed by quadruple marker test and this will give a good information about presence of any anomalies.

I am having irregular periods from 5-6 months. What is the reason? Can you please help me out?
Hello- Irregular periods occur due to hormonal imbalance and slow body metabolism. If you are over weight thn the fat metabolism is hampering the blood metabolism in your body and thus creating a type of deficiency which can manifest as irregular menses. -Exercise daily, and reduce fat specially from your belly. -Consume cows ghee.(Its the only natural fat which promotes normal menses due to its rich Omega-3 and other vital components) -Keep you bowel clean. Gaseous distension sometimes obstruct the menstrual; blood flow. -Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. -Drink plenty of water to detoxify your body.

Hi Gurdeep chances of getting pregnant will depend upon age, antral follicular count, Fallopian tube status and hormonal profile. Please get your husband semen analysis too. As per cause we treat it situation . Even you try in fertile period chances of getting pregnant would be low in presence of one of these factors.

How to get rid of fibroids in uterus. Is there permanent cure? Is there any future problems during pregnancy?
There is no medicinal permanent cure. Of course if you get them surgically removed, you have permanent solution. Regarding future problems during pregnancy, it depends on the size and site of the fibroid. Better consult a gynaecologist and ask all queries please.

Hello- Good hygiene can help alleviate symptoms of intercourse pain. Avoid scented bath products, such as body washes and shower gels, as they can irritate your genital area and deplete your natural lubrication. A combination of Dong quai, American ginseng, saw palmetto, wild yam, black cohosh, and yohimbe relieves involuntary vaginal reflex and alleviates intercourse pain. Aloe Vera is helpful for infections and is known for its healing effects. It can be applied topically to relieve itching, taken internally, or used in a douche.

When it comes to the treatment of leucorrhea, one has to take into account the exact cause of the problem. The treatment of the problem varies according to the cause. Whatever the cause of leucorrhea or white flow, homeopathy is very much capable of treating the problem. In cases where leucorrhea occurs due to infection, homeopathic medicines not only cure leucorrhea but the infection too. Once the infection is cured, the excessive discharge is also cured. Even in cases where the cause is physiological only, the homeopathic treatment of leucorrhea are equally effective.
