Hi, yes if a person is lean, do regular exercise still chances of high cholesterol deposit still exist as genes play major role in every thing, if fat metabolism is not good due to defective gene then, it can definitely lead to cholesterol deposit. Other factor such as smoking, drinking also encourage high cholesterol levels.

Dear hyperlipedemia is your condtion and in ihomoeopathic perspective it is due to more stress than the food which also plays a short role. So do some yoga or pranayam to reduce stress. Right homoeopathic medicine after assessing the cause of this condition will bring a permanent cure.

Blood pressure is a fluctuating problem. It can change from time to time and with age. Multiple factors have a role in this. Some can be modified, others can just be managed through medications. Factors that can be modified are exercise levels and food we eat. Exercise daily for 40-45 mins, avoid caffeine, smoking and salt rich food like chips, pickles, papad, chutneys etc if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions BP is still high, you will need to take medications too, and these medications can be required for lifetime and doses may vary from time to time, so you should remain in follow up of a cardiologist.

Hi. Sometimes over treating hypertension can lead to low blood pressure and generalised weaknesses. Just check her blood pressure twice daily and give medicine only if systolic bp is more than 130 mmhg.

This certainly needs a look by your family doctor. This mostly is flu. Try first plain crocin tablets for 1-2 days. If there is no relief then see a doctor.

* Exercise - Do 30 - 45 minutes a day of moderate cardio. It will help s to lose weight and boosts your HDL levels. * Diet - eat more fibers, eat healthy fats i.e. Nuts, olive oil, avocado all have fats that won't increase your LDL, limit cholesterol intake, i.e. Reduce high saturated fat foods like cheese, whole milk. Choose fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low fat or nonfat dairy products, eat low salt diet. * Quit smoking, limit alcohol and caffeine consumption. * Do practice relaxation and breathing exercises. * Garlic - it helps to reduce high cholesterol. In the morning take a small piece of garlic and crush it and take with glass of water. The garlic contains allicin which helps to lower high blood pressure and prevents blood clotting. * Drink 8 - 10 glasses of water, per day.

A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying. Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes, and the problem goes away, perhaps when a stressful situation ends. But if you've had recurrent, unexpected panic attacks and spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder. Panic attack can come in agoraphobia, when there is fear of places where there is no exit, in crowds, locked places, travelling far from home….etc. Although panic attacks themselves aren't life-threatening, they can be frightening and significantly affect your quality of life. But treatment can be very effective. Consult a Psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best for you.
