Does Daxid 50 mg (two tablets daily) have a role to play in curing sleep apnea? Or is it only to treat depression?

Does Daxid 50 mg (two tablets daily) have a role to play in curing sleep apnea? Or is it only to treat depression?
Daxid is sertraline which is an antidepressant which increases the serotonin uptake in neurons of brain. It is usually prescribed for depression or anxiety symptoms primarily. Now in sleep apnea it can be prescribed for the secondary mood symptoms of the disorder but if it is prescribed only for sleep apnea symptoms then it's not a rational prescription.

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

As a neurologist, I can tell no food can cure alzheimers. It can be managed and progession can be slowed with medicines.

Hello, please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure your food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. Its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, also add b complex for feets.

I am 18ys old female. Since 3 years I am suffering from getting numbs quickly, if I spend on 1 posture. Is there any neurological problem.

No. It is due to keeping the body in one posture for a long time cuts off blood supply to the area you feel numbed. Keep movin the posture at times.

If your migraines are accompanied by pain in the back of the neck and top of the head, you should have your neck muscles and cervical spine evaluated. Normal pain killers will not work.

As per complaints she should be given medicine regularly. When she becomes under control she should be treated for stress which is the main reason for her. Mind management at no meditation clinic mind management is available which is simple easy less time taking **which is not available anywhere After mind management mind gets free out of stress insecurity in professional /family life rather happiness goes on increasing. Also effects on body r treated with powerful techniques like craniosacral balancing n quantum touch which work on whole body & brain activation/ pacification Wishing you a healthy life.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of sex/love/future/marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you ? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you can't do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help you.

Sir I am a 33 yrs old male, suffering from right sided hemiplegia from the past 20 yrs. I have undergone herbal, allopathic, ayurvedic and homeopathic treatments but nothing has helped me till now. Due to this problem I cannot even walk straight, during walking I have a tendency to fall on right side, my whole right side has become stiff. Currently I am under homeopathic treatment by a classical homeopath, my ct scan reports shows a pinched nerve behind the right ear, due to which I experience noise in my right ear during swallowing. I also suffer from phobia, and panic attacks. Homeopathic drugs has given me a momentary relief in my anxiety. I also experience loss of energy. Please help me.

The news is unfortunately not encouraging: hemiplegia is not curable but it can be treated and some improvement of functions and some relief of discomfort may be pursued. You need to definitely go for physiotherapy, regularly. There are exercises to improve some functions over a period of time. In early childhood, it was possible to train the brain to use alternate neural pathways called neuroplasticity that could have been explored. Now that is not possible due to your age. An occupational therapist will also help you become a functional person so that you could do something in life. I suggest you explore swimming with an assistant because any movement that coordinates the left and right movement will open up some possibilities. Regarding the phobia and panic attacks, though not directly connected to hemiplegia, they may be a result of the frustration and other factors that have indirectly influenced you emotionally. You could explore these with a counselor and clear the fear-related reactions you have. But you must persevere and I hope you are receiving a lot of support from the family, without which life can become very difficult. Faith and hope must be cultivated and through discussion with a professional some role can be identified for you. You do have a purpose in this life, in this very condition to contribute, even successfully. Keep the search going. I like your spirit and this will not go unrewarded, if you persevere.

10 Easy Tips For Staying Healthy In Winter

10 Easy Tips For Staying Healthy In Winter

1. Boost immunity

It’s important to take care of our health throughout the year but during the winter months it becomes even more essential. Eating well, getting enough sleep and staying active are all important during winter to help keep you and your family healthy and to support your immune systems. Supplements containing herbs and nutrients such as echinacea, garlic, vitamin c, and zinc will help to support healthy immune function.

 

2. Keep moving

While it’s a little harder to find the motivation to exercise when it is cold outside, remember that keeping active during winter is essential to support our health and wellbeing. Moving your exercise indoors during winter will help to keep you warm as well as fit and healthy. Be sure to spend time warming up before you start your exercise as it can take a little longer for your joints to loosen up in the cold weather.

 

3. Eating well

As winter sets in it can be tempting to start eating more of those warm comfort foods that are often high in fat, salt and sugar. Instead, find comfort in foods such as warming and nourishing soups and stews full of flavour and healthy vegetables. Be sure your diet includes winter fruit and vegetables packed with vitamins and minerals such as sweet potato, green leafy vegetables, beetroot, kiwi fruit, mandarins, bananas, garlic and ginger.

 

4. Weight management

Ditching the exercise as well as the salads during winter can often lead to weight gain. While it may only be a small weight gain, it begins to add up as you get more and more winters under your belt! although it’s tempting to hide behind those bulky winter clothes, by sticking to your healthy diet and exercise routine all year round, you’ll be much healthier in the long run and won’t dread the next swimming season with the kids!

 

5. Sleeping well

Proper sleep (eight hours for an adult) can help keep the body's immune system healthy and fight off colds. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes as these substances can affect the quality of your sleep. Regular, moderate exercise, relaxation techniques and establishing a regular sleep routine may help to promote improved sleep.

 

6. Skin health

The cold weather can affect our skin and contribute to conditions such as dry, itchy skin, chill blains and eczema. This may be due to the reduced humidity, drinking less water than you would during summer or possibly due to reduced circulation which may decrease the flow of blood and nutrients to the skin. Using moisturisers daily may help to keep the skin moist and supple whilst supplements containing vitamin e or garlic help assist blood circulation. If any of your family suffers psoriasis or eczema, try taking fish oils. These provide omega-3 which can help manage these itchy skin conditions. And don’t forget the sunscreen, it is important to remember we can still get sunburnt when the weather is cold!

 

7. Keeping bugs at bay

Although we can do a lot to support our health and immunity during winter it is not always possible to avoid catching a cold or flu. The viruses that cause colds are spread by sneezing, coughing and hand contact. Wash or sanitise your hands regularly and avoid close contact with someone who has a cold. Keep household surfaces clean as well as kids’ toys when someone in the family has a cold. If you are ill, be sure to drink plenty of fluids, including water, hot tea and soup. Avoid alcohol and caffeine and get plenty of sleep. Supplements such as vitamin c, zinc and echinacea may help relieve the symptoms and reduce the duration of a cold.

 

8. Stress and healthy mood

While stress is a part of everyday life, and some stress helps us to meet challenging situations, excessive amounts of stress may be linked to negative effects across a range of areas. Stress can lower the resistance to nasty bugs by depressing the immune system. Importantly, stress increases your need for dietary magnesium which is important for muscle and nerve function. Many of the b vitamins e. G. B1, b5, b6 and b12 are also needed for a healthy nervous system. The herb st john's wort may help to relieve nervousness, irritability and help support emotional balance. It may also be beneficial to help promote healthy mood balance but speak to your doctor or healthcare practitioner before starting a supplement like this.

 

9. Circulation

During winter our hands and feet can often feel cold. Our hands and feet are at the extremities of our bodies which means they are the furthest from the heart which is pumping blood around our body to help keep us warm. Vitamin e and the herb ginkgo help to support peripheral blood circulation, thereby alleviating cold hands and feet. Keep moving with gentle exercise to help improve circulation to the extremities of the body and don’t forget your socks and gloves! if you can’t seem to keep your hands warm (and it’s not bothering you excessively) take solace in the old saying “cold hands, warm heart”!

 

10. Stay hydrated

Don’t forget to keep drinking water! as the weather cools down and our thirst decreases it is easy to forget to drink enough water. You still need to aim for about two litres/day of water during winter as it is essential for our body to function. If you struggle with plain water (like we do sometimes) try herbal tea. There are so many flavours available now that you’re sure to find some you enjoy.

You must have a balanced high protein diet. Increase fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Protein sources like egg whites and soya. However if weakness persists get your thytoid, blood sugar & vitamin d levels tested and review.
