One can gain weight but results would not be favorable at all. These things may lead to low metabolism, weak digestion system, apart from that high blood pressure, high sugar and other heart related issues may occur. So this is not at all a good way to gain weight According to Ayurveda following are the foods which are very helpful in weight gain: • Figs (Anjeer) • Raisin (Kishmish) • Ashwagandha powder • Shtaravi powder • Dates (Khajoor) • banana • mango • Clarified buttor (Ghee) • Milk • Honey • For weight gain100% safe and natural medicenes available in our purna cosmetic laser skin and slimming centre in 1 month 4-5 kg increases without any side effects for medicenes consult privetly and trail pack for 1month ..and only 3month course

The best natural medicine for thyroid is coriander. Start drinking 10 grams coriander in 150 ml water and drink after boiling it for 15 minutes in morning empty stomach for 3 months regular. Make sure that you are walking 90 minutes every day. Drink four litres water every day but make sure not to drink water after your meals. Give a gap of 90 minutes.

Hello lybrate-user, fever for four days calls for a blood test. It is better that you undergo a blood test for malaria, typhoid and dengue as you are having fever for four days.

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

This started in feb 2011 since I was having inferiority complex towards my short hight. Sometimes I felt like socially abused due to this. i developed social anxiety due to this .things related to hight or to improve it keeps running on my mind and I was unable to come out this. Latter I diagnosed as a case of OCD. Finally in july 2011 I admitted to the hospital due to depression and diagnosed as a case of bipolar disorder (taken carbamazepine 800 mg for 3 years) then stopped by my Dr. After 6 month I again relapsed and now taking lithium 800 mg daily and stable .my problem other than depression is a kind of ocd. Due to my short height I developed sever social anxiety. I keep on checking my height to others and to give me assurance I think of some person who are of my height and looks better. When I pass to a person of my height I compare it with mind in my mind only. Latter on images of those people keep running on my mind. Those images of short people and thought related to my height bothered me a lot when I told this to doctors they told that it will go away with the time. Latter on situation improved and these thought and images gone away completely. I started living a normal life like others. Now these thoughts and images still comes but after many months and only for a week or two and then goes off automatically. This time after so many months (almost a year) it came back and bothering me lot. Now these image and thoughts keeps running on my mind so frequently that it interrupts daily routine .unable to focus on things like tv and all. I do not want to those images to irritate me. Now from few days I am having problem with my sleep. It gets interrupted and I feel like frightened, anxious and wake up with little racing heartbeat. By the time I have started lorazepam 2 mg at night. How to stop these racing thoughts. Is there any medicine or therapy can help me? Can I live a secure life? Will it be passed to my son?

Dear lybrate-user you seem to be running a commentary of questions. First of all, let me reassure you that it is not at all compulsory that your son would have your illness. Psychiatric disorders have a hereditary role but the risk if calculated as compared to general population (I mean the ones that do not have any diagnosed psychiatric disorder) is greater. As far as your complaints are concerned being a case of bipolar your treating psychiatrist must have informed you about the nature of illness. It is characterised by relapses. The time duration between episodes may vary. Whenever a relapse occurs it is quite possible that you may have varied symptoms, even OC symptoms. So consult your treating psychiatrist for appropriate changes in your medications so that OC symptoms are dealt with. Also you may go fir behaviour therapy under a trained therapist or psychologist.

I have hair loss problem for last few months. What to do?
Hi. It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month.

Hye. Thank you for your query. There are many ways to lose a lot of weight fast. However, most of them will make you hungry and unsatisfied. If you don’t have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on these plans quickly plus all you lose is unhealthy muscle mass and the fats are still around hence causing gain after loss. Eating sensibly and as per your body's nutrient needs will reduce your appetite significantly, Make you lose weight healthily without hunger and improve your metabolic health at the same time. Here are some tips to help you lose weight. Eat a high-protein breakfast. Eating a high-protein breakfast has been shown to reduce cravings and calorie intake throughout the day. Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. These are the most fattening things you can put into your body, and avoiding them can help you lose weight. Drink water a half hour before meals. Drinking water a half hour before meals increased weight loss by suppressing appetite and avoiding overeating. Choose seasonal foods. Eat smaller but more frequent meals. Eat soluble fiber. Eat fruits and vegetables. Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods. Base most of your diet on whole foods. They are healthier, more filling and much less likely to cause overeating. Eat your food slowly. Fast eaters gain more weight over time. Eating slowly makes you feel more full and boosts weight-reducing hormones. Use smaller plates. Studies show that people automatically eat less when they use smaller plates. Get a good night’s sleep, every night. Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain, so taking care of your sleep is important. It is best to do some sort of resistance training. If that is not an option, cardio workouts work too. Workout at least 4 times a week to see good fat loss.

6 Reasons to Have Chocolate Guilt-free!

Are you among those people who love chocolates but are overcome by guilt even after having a small bar? (Basically 99% of the human population over the age of 12!) Here's some SWEET news for you! Studies show that not only can you bite into a lusciously rich-brown bar guilt-free but also delight in the knowledge that this food fit for the gods is doing your body a world of good. Sounds unbelievable? Read on...

1. Chocolate Reduces risk of diabetes by 31%
A detailed analysis of 7 studies published in 2011 reveals that dark chocolate can lessen the threat of type 2 diabetes by as much as 31%! This is due to enhanced insulin sensitivity and improved regulation of glucose triggered by chocolate consumption.

2. Chocolate Decreases risk of strokes by 20%
These sweet delights contain flavonoids, which are antioxidants with lots of health benefits. Swedish research reveals that consumption of 45 grams of chocolate per week helps in decreasing stroke risk among women by as much as 20 %.

3. 40 cups of cocoa a week enhance your blood flow
A recent survey by Harvard Medical School among Panama’s Kuna people reveals that less than 10 percent of their population suffer from heart diseases, diabetes or cancer due to the inclusion of up to 40 cups of cocoa into their weekly diet. Fascinating isn’t it? Dr. Norman, the lead researcher opines that the nitric oxide present in cocoa dilates vessels and enhances flow of blood through your body. Could there be a better way to stay healthy?

4. Chocolate boosts your working memory speed by 30%
Recently, the University of Nottingham conducted a brain-imaging study on healthy women. This showed that flavanol-rich cocoa improved the flow of blood into the brain for 2 to 3 hours. What’s more, it’s beneficial for older people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s. Plus chocolate enhances your scores on a working memory speed test by 30%.

5. Chocolate lowers risk of calcified plaque in the arteries by 32%
A recent study proved that consumption of chocolates for 2 or more times per week lowers risk of calcified plaque in the arteries by 32%. So basically, chocolate loves your heart as much your heart loves chocolate.

6. About 45 grams of chocolates keep exhaustion at bay
According to research conducted on chronic fatigue syndrome patients, an eight-week long consumption of 1.6 ounces (45 gm) of chocolate each day helps in keeping you active. The fact behind this is that chocolates help in enhancing your neurotransmitters, which in turn help in controlling sleep and mood.

So, now you might want to pamper yourself with this sinful delight. But do remember to take the path of moderation. Excess of anything… you can finish this line yourself. But do so while indulging in some good ol' Cadbury.
