Natural Ways To Help You Manage Sleep!

Natural Ways To Help You Manage Sleep!

If you suffer from sleeplessness or disrupted sleep at night, you should consider undertaking Ayurvedic measures to deal with the problem. The principle of Ayurveda states that proper sleep is a very important part of maintaining a good health, and any compromise with it could lead to complications. There are several Ayurvedic principles that you can adopt in order to improve your sleep. They are as follows:

Maintain a disciplined sleep schedule

  • It is important for you to be disciplined regarding your sleep.
  • Your mind remains dull and slow from 6 pm to 10pm. This is an ideal time for sleeping.
  • You should sleep early, which will enable you to sleep well throughout the night, and wake up early the next morning.

Mindful eating

  • Try having dinner by 7 pm. Your digestive system cools down as the sun begins to set.
  • Having an early meal allows proper digestion, which is important for positive sleep.
  • While eating any meal, you should not concentrate on any other thing except for food.

Oil massage

  • Oil massage therapy, especially a massage on your feet with herbal oils, is an effective Ayurvedic remedy to improve sleep.
  • There are several nerve endings in your feet, which are nourished during such an oil massage.
  • Massaging relieves stress, improves your blood circulation, makes you calm and relaxed, and lets you sleep at length.

Pranayama

  • This is another important Ayurvedic way of improving your sleep.
  • You need to practice several rounds of Nadi Shodhana Pranayama on a regular basis, which involves alternate nostril breathing.
  • This method helps in calming down your nervous system, soothes your mind, and thus results in a deeper and better sleep.

Practice self-compassion

  • Ayurvedic principles state that your wellness and health depend on a proper balance between your mind, body, and soul.
  • While some people make us feel positive, other people drain us emotionally, leaving us cranky and annoyed.
  • You should be mindful over whom and about what you interact with before going to sleep. Always try to stay in a positive environment away from any negative factors.
  • Abstain from engrossing on social media activity, watching television, or browsing on your cell phone two hours before going to bed.

It is also necessary for you to work out on a regular basis and keep physically fit and healthy. A healthy body ensures a healthy mind, which in turn, is important for improved sleep. Avoid having coffee or any form of stimulant after 3 pm in the afternoon.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user' Tingling sensation in head could be due to multiple reasons e.g. Low BP, vertigo, hypoglycemia, etc. We need to order some blood investigations and then discuss your problem in detail. Kindly consult me in private. Thank you.

Feeling pain in anus rectum while going for stool and its irritating what inhave to do. It seems like piles.

Feeling pain in anus rectum while going for stool and its irritating what inhave to do. It seems like piles.
Swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. Other factors that increase the risk for getting hemorrhoids include constipation, diarrhea, lifting heavy objects, poor posture, prolonged sitting, pregnancy, eating a diet low in fibre, anal intercourse, and being overweight. Liver damage and some food allergies can also add stress to the rectal veins. People who consistently eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to get hemorrhoids, while those people who prefer a diet high in processed foods are at higher risk. A low-fiber diet or inadequate fluid intake can cause constipation, which can contribute to hemorrhoids in two ways: it promotes straining on the toilet People do not consider homeopathy medicine for piles at its early stages and this is one of the reason why they end up under a surgeon's knife.

Take full 7-8 hrs of sleep everyday and go to bed by 10 pm. Wake up early and do regular yoga or exercise for at least 1 hr so that your muscles get tonned up. Your age is less so chances of any pathology are minimum.

You have to do a TFT test and inform me the results .Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition in which man has trouble in keeping or getting an erection. It is a common male sexual dysfunction. It becomes more common as you get older but it is not a part of aging. MECHANISM OF ERECTION An erection starts in the brain. Physical and mental stimulation is required for an erection to begin. This stimulation causes nerves in the brain to send chemical messages to nerves which are present in the penis which results in the free flow of blood into the penis. This leads to high pressure in the penis which in turn traps the blood within both corpora cavernosa and then the penis expand. This causes the penis to sustain an erection. When the inflow of blood is stopped, then it opens outflow channels and then penis becomes soft. Then an erection is said to be reversed. CAUSES OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION Erection is a complex process which involves hormones, brain, emotions, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. Problem with any one of these can lead to erectile dysfunction. Sometimes stress and mental health can also lead to erectile dysfunction. Combination of Physical and Psychological issues can lead to erectile dysfunction. Some medicines like antidepressants can also cause this and if you are taking any medication you have to discuss with your treating doctor to change or stop medicine if possible PHYSICAL CAUSES OF ED •Heart disease, high blood pressure, High cholesterol. •Parkinson's disease, obesity, alcoholism, atherosclerosis. •Use of tobacco, surgeries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord. •Treatments for prostate cancer. PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES OF ED: Depression, anxiety, stress and other mental health conditions are some of the psychological issues which causes erectile dysfunction. SYMPTOMS OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION •Trouble in getting erection •Difficulty in keeping erection •Reduced sexual desire To Prevent ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION By decreasing the chances of developing several diseases like diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, chances of developing erectile dysfunction can be decreased to some extent. By eating healthy diet, erectile dysfunction can be managed. By doing Exercise daily and by avoiding smoking, risk for developing erectile dysfunction can be decreased. If you do not have any diseases it is only your mind that is preventing your erection. So you need to be calm and stop worrying about it and keep on doing normally.

Generally calcium supplements donor cause kidney stones. But as a diabetic your kidney function needs to be monitored ie renal function tests. Uti is common in diabetics and has nothing to do with calcium supplements. To prevent stones and uti, you need to increase your fluid intake and avoid food items which hv seeds like guavas, pomegranates,ladyfinger, brinjal.

Limit the amount of white bread, sugar, meat, junk food and milk products (cheese, milk, butter, cream.) and increasing fresh fruits, veggies, water and fiber (beans, oats,) also yogurt really helps due to the probiotics. Maybe you could do a food diary for a period, eliminate a couple of items at a time and build up until you have added enough other of good items to make the stools loose. Oatmeal helps out tremendously. Figure out the diet and once you've added enough good things, slowly pull back on the laxatives and pay attention as you go. This could be a food allergy, do some research, usually its lactose (dairy), nuts, sugar, food coloring, preservatives. Try to avoid boxed and processed foods which have more preservatives, calories, fat, high carb. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication, consult me in private.
