Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost. ***If you do not get results with this treatment then please revert me i will suggest you to go through some tests.*** Thanks.

Hello, my personal recommendation would be to go for a day shift as soon as possible. There are several studies done on disruption in'circadian rhythm' or in other term" internal body clock. Your circadian clock influences your metabolism, immune system, memory, learning and creativity, weight gain/loss, cardiac and diabetes risk, cancer risk etc. As far as diet is concerned during your shift timings, you can eat: 1. An evening snack at around 6 pm 2. Light dinner at 9 pm. (e. G. Mix vegetable dalia or oats khichadi) 3. Fruit at 12 am 4. And may be a glass of milk (add a pinch of nutmeg and turmeric) with 1 medium banana 30-45 minutes before you go to bed. This way you will not be starved for more than 8 hours after your last meal. You can eat your first meal as soon as you wake up at 11 am. Start your day with lemon and honey water. This helps to alkalise and detox the body.

Hello, As i can see you have not put on much in your pregnancy, but do take care that you don't put on weight during lactating period. It is a common notion that you need to eat for two, specially from the mothers, so i would like to suggest you take in 500 calories more, which you will get from eating 2 more chapatis, 1 catorie more of rice and from 1 serving of vegetables and 2 serving of fruits. Also you will take into consideration the ghee and oil and all the sweets. Have small meals rather that three large meals and also have lote of water. Since you have had a C-section, dont jump in strenious exercises without consultation with your Gyneac. Do come for consultation for details diet chart

This is common for long term players and stopped playing due to injuries. To loose weight meal replacements are good in your case as you have no option for physical activities. Once your ankle is set right then you can start with balanced diet. For a detailed counseling and treatment. Consult me. Stay healthy stay fit.☺

Hello, There is no need to worry as few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Hello, It's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! Remember, there's no magic bullet for weight loss. The key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume. Choose a variety of healthy foods — such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein — and include physical activity in your daily routine. Go through the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: Management: 1: Drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: Enjoy your favorite foods. 4: Have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: Do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous). Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. Preferably brisk walking, swimming, cycling, skipping. 6: Eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: Eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: Choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: Cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: Don't skip meals. When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: Eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: Give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. 13: Go for a health walk. Gear up yourself daily for a health walk which not only shed off your extra calorie, but also reduces the stress levels. 14: Take small frequent breaks for a quick walk in between as sitting for long hours together encourages the accumulation of fat in the body! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 3 months. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. (Slow and steady weight loss is good. As we all know when you lose weight fast, it seems to jump right back on, where as when you lose weight steadily over time because of changes to your diet and balancing your hormones out it tends to stay off.) All the best!

Homeopathic Remedies for Weight Gain

Homeopathic Remedies for Weight Gain

Most people are highly bothered about being overweight, but nobody is bothered about underweight risks. The real fact is that both overweight and underweight conditions are extreme kinds of health conditions, and both are very much risky and can create innumerable health complications.

Being underweight is not only common among kids, but sometimes adults also become the victims of the same. Therefore, if you want to get complete freedom from the risks that are associated with being underweight, then you have to rely on homeopathic treatment.

Some of the homeopathic medicines for weight gain are:
If you think that only healthy eating is the only solution to improve your weight, then you are wrong. Rather you have to choose an option that can remove the trouble directly from within. In this case, you can discuss with your homeopathic doctor for possible medicines and ways which not only help you in increasing your weight, but your overall health condition can also be improved to a great extent.

  1. Ignatia: Different kinds of eating disorders, especially bulimia and anorexia causing underweight troubles can be completely eliminated by this specific drug from the homeopathy world. Fear of increased weight can be removed, and you can lead a healthy lifestyle with the usage of this remedy in a consistent manner. On the other hand, emotional health can also be effectively stimulated so that you can think positive all the time. Excessive appetite suppression can be eliminated by Ignatia, and this is the reason it is now getting the highest recommendation for gaining of weight.
  2. Lycopodium: Both adolescents and children who are suffering from underweight troubles for a long time are often recommended to use this homeopathic medicine for getting speedy results. Digestive health can be improved, and food habits can be corrected so that you can have sufficient food amounts, which are required for maintaining your health condition.
  3. Alfalfa tonic: This homeopathic tonic has got innumerable benefits and this is why doctors are prescribing the same to underweight patients. Weight can be gained and appetite can be improved. Patients having balmia, nervous indigestion and malnutrition can be efficiently treated by means of this tonic, but in this case the tonic needs to be taken on a regular basis.
  4. Sepia: Normal appetite can be easily restored by this medicine and thus you can have a balanced weight. Sometimes, hormonal imbalance causes appetite loss and this kind of unhealthy condition can be regulated by this medicine.
