You can follow some tips in daily routine. 1. After every meal, drink 1 cup boiling water with spoon sip by sip. After half an hour you have taken meal do this daily. 2. Try to avoid eating heavy food after 7 pm. As it takes time to digest heavy food. 3. Drink 1 glass water half an hour before meal. 4. Try to do some exercise. Yoga and meditation are very good in losing weight and maintaining it also. Yoga asanas you can do - manduk asana - sarwang asana - setubal asana - pawan mukht asana pranayama -anulom vilom -deep breathing - kapal bhati other exercises -crunches -cycling -leg rotation

My eyes dark circles are not getting light. I tried every way possible like cucumber, lemon juice etc. What should I do?

My eyes dark circles are not getting light.
I tried every way possible like cucumber, lemon juice etc.
What should I do?
Hi. Dark circles can be temporary (means happens after any recent or chronic diseases or underlying medical condition, insufficient sleep, nutritional deificiency, working long hrs. on computer, lack of rest, stress/ tension, etc.) which can be improved by fixing the underlying cause or the problem or can be inherited from your parent's genes which can't be treated or cured! Management: Eat healthy and on time. Avoid junk. Drink plenty of water (as dehydration can cause dull or patchy skin). Sleep well. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer. Reduce your stress/ tension through yoga, meditation or any other exercises (it not only improves your blood circulation, but also reduces the production of stress hormones by the body as well as increases happy hormones in the body). Use sunglasses regularly and not to forget to apply a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen liberally, 20-30 minutes before stepping out in the sun and apply the same again after 3-4 hours if you have exposure to sunlight for long hours. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Cina 1M/ one dose daily at night for 10 days. Schwabe's Alfalafa Tonic/ 1 tsp thrice a day daily for 20 days and revert me back about the condition. Apply Bakson's Under Eye Cream twice daily (in morning and at night) and Medicynth's Whitch Hazel cream and Bakson's Under Eye cream twice - in morning and at night daily. Revert back to me after (You will have to keep doing something to maintain them if it's hereditary).

Lower Body Lift - Facts You Never Heard of!

M Ch. Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Lower Body Lift - Facts You Never Heard of!

A Lower Body Lift is also called a belt lipectomy, is an increasingly popular type of surgery. The aim of this surgery is to eliminate or improve excessive or sagging of thigh and buttock skin from the area. This surgery is mostly opted to enhance the physical appearance and is becoming increasingly popular these days.

Causes to undergo Lower Body Lift:

  1. A Lower body lift may be undergone when, due to extreme weight loss or advanced age, the skin in the buttocks, thighs and abdomen becomes loose and appears to be sagging 
  2. Apart from loosening the skin, weight loss can also make the buttocks & thighs and abdomen look deformed or de-shaped. In that case, a Lower Body Lift helps the patient correct the area.

Lower body lift are most likely to be successful when

  1. The layers of fat beneath the skin of the patient are relatively thin. 
  2. The patient does not smoke, as smoking slows down the healing process and also increases the risk of post surgery complications. 
  3. The patient's weight does not fluctuate a lot. He or she must have stable weight for at least a year before the surgery. 
  4. The overall health of the patient is good, and he or she does not suffer from chronic medical conditions.

How is the surgery performed? 

  1. Depending on the body type and other condition of the patient, the doctors make a circumferential incision at the waist or slightly below that area. 
  2. After that, the excess fat or skin is removed from the soft tissue that is present there. Following this, the skin is closed up in layers and tightened.

Things to keep in mind before the surgery:

  1. It may take a few months to recover fully, post surgery
  2. Weight gain or loss in the future may affect the results of the surgery

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi. I m facing problem with a dandruff and I m getting pimples on my face. What is the solution to control hair fall?
Coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. For further queries get back to me.

Do not depend only on medications. You should now make up your mind to lead a very healthy lifestyle. Eat only healthy food. Do not take antibiotics (which is given only in case of infection) with out the prescription of a doctor. Start with brisk walk for 10-20. Increase the duration to 30 mins. Include Yoga as it can heal you naturally. Learn pranayam and meditation which can relax your mind and provide relief to your anxieties. Have patience and follow the discipline. You can also add Homeopathy later if any complaints do remain. You can contact me online for consultation.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Keep your skin moisturized at all times. Use creams/lotions with olive oil or shea butter. Psoriasis can be kept under control but requires treatment for some time.
