Hello lybrate user- insomnia occurs due to improper food intake, improper schedule, any tragedy or loss in the family or society etc. I am here by mentioning some brilliant ayurvedic medicines which will help you without any side effects- a) ashwagandharistha 2 tsp twice daily. B) brahmi hair oil daily use. C) brahmi hair oil also used as nasal drops twice daily. D) massage your foot sole daily with cows ghee before going to bed.

There is nothing to worry about smarak---------------masturbation may be done at intervals of 35 days or more than 35 days to prevent any adverse effects on the body although doing it once or twice a week is bearable. ------just control a little bit more and you are almost there--------------this is still a debate whether masturbation causes pimples or not but in your case as you do masturbate to a tolerable limit, I do not think that your pimples problem is due to masturbation and it is just due to hormonal changes--------mostly right testes is bigger than left testicle and intermittent pain in testicle is a normal phenemenon unless you experience some really acute pain nd swelling and can be related to your masturbation habit------------so just try a little bit more in controlling this habit and myself being a homoeopath will surely help in this direction if you find difficulty---try for another month and again consult if problem------------

I wanna know the diet plan of a diabetic person. If still there is no anti diabetic medicine in the market?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
I wanna know the diet plan of a diabetic person. If still there is no anti diabetic medicine in the market?
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
