It is not worth bothering about diet vs. Exercise at 18 when you are still gaining height. Go slow. Be more focussed on diet and exercise compared to medicines and special diets. Take toned milk and curds and boiled egg if you eat as a protein and as a filler so as not to suffer from hunger pangs for at least 4 hours. Same rule applies to a katori of nuts plus roasted dry chick peas or chane or maize seads. Drink lots of water and ors. Fresh juice of a lemon plus a spoon of honey in a glass of warm water- take it everyday on an empty stomach, it does reduce fats and other impurities in blood. Walikng is a simple exercise, so is swimming. But yoga and meditation done along with all of above is a healthy combo. Your weight at 5.1 should be 55 on upper limit & you need to reduce only 5 kgs, which can be difficult compared to reduction of more weight. Aggressive approach at this age is not advised. Eating right along with simple exercise should become a lifelong habit. Good luck and do write back after a month when you will be lighter by 5 kgs.

Child Development - Positive Parenting Tips!

Child Development - Positive Parenting Tips!

As a parent, we all love our children deeply. And most of us will agree that these days parenting is very demanding and exhausting instead of pleasurable and joyous process. What has changed? It is not that children are any different. The difference is in the environment around them with stronger social influences; and this also affects the way we parent. In today's more democratic and egalitarian world; 'Do as I say and not as I do' style of parenting does not work. But, 'I will do as I see you doing' phrase from kids define our parent child relationship.

With change in social environment and influence, our strategies for correcting their behaviour and impart discipline has to undergo adaptation! When there are so many confusing and conflicting signals reach to our kids from their environment, whether we like it or not, we are still their role models. How positive parenting style will help? The core principle of positive parenting is to accept your child as an individual. We are in a democratic society and family is a small yet important part of society. Democracy does not mean allowing disrespectful and irresponsible behaviour; rather to effectively help kids change their behaviour and create harmonious and cooperative relationship with them. It also means that we as a parent need to learn to think, act and react in a different way.

Through, positive parenting, you will learn respectful disciplining methods, which would work better than demanding compliance. Through these principles and tips you will get your child to listen without screaming, nagging, reminding or evoking rebellious behaviour. More importantly this is all about building stronger relationship bond with your children and nurture them through early childhood to teen age years as they become independent, responsible, capable, kind, happy and successful young adults.

Tips to get you started:

  1. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, including children.
  2. When your kid misbehaves instead of shouting or hitting, control your anger and respond in a calm and respectful way. Calmer but firmer tone and lower voice, yet not giving into their repeated demand, is much more effective as a discipline tool compare to nagging.
  3. Understandable that you have a lot on your plate, such as work, managing and keeping the home in order, managing meals and other outside responsibilities, kids sports or extracurricular activities, family obligations and so on. It is easy to get lost in all these 'have to do' activities. Parenting shouldn't be just one more task to deal with. Reconnecting with your parenting goals and aspirations periodically will help take the stress out of it and add fun into it. Spend some time daily (10 minutes will do as well!) to just listen and enjoy your child (without correcting them or giving them suggestion to improve!).
  4. Let your love for them be the driving force. Shift your internal conversations from 'have to' to 'want to'. As you do enormous things for your child each day, think how you are supporting their ambitions. How you are helping them become independent and strong. How you are nurturing qualities like compassion and deep listening by extending yourself.
  5. Give promises and keep them. As your children grow they need much more than your words to trust and rely on you. Keeping your promises, letting them know if you need to change the plan, taking their opinion in appropriate matter will go a long way.
  6. Seek to understand and do not impose yourself on your child. Especially when they are in their teenage, as a parent you have lot of worries, you are afraid of them making mistakes and of course you want to protect them from vices. Listening to them while keeping your focus on genuinely understanding them is the only way to go, when they know you understand them and they can trust you, the street between both of you turns two way street! They will be open to your wisdom and suggestion when they are at the cross road.
  7. Last but not the least, 'be a role model'. Don't preach. If they see you disrespecting others, they will not respect you. If they see you hooked on your smart phone; that is their license to keep theirs in front of their eyes 24/7. If you are hooked in front of the TV till late night and haven't picked up a book in last 6 months. Advice about reading is going to fall on dumb ears. In short, be the change you want to see in your children.
  8. Have family nights at least once in a week, play cards, board games or go for a walk together. Talk and listen. Just be there and listen without judgement and criticism, without thinking about how to correct them. Just enjoy each other's company and see how they are changing their opinion about you. Positive parenting doesn't mean you will never have problems in your family. You will? if you are alive and growing family. Positive parenting style will open up the avenues to keep communication alive; it will open your children to your influence. Isn't it something that we all wish for!! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

If your weight is normal, you just need to maintain same weight by jogging or brisk walk daily for 4-5km. If you have excessive hair and irregular menses, you should start taking krimson-35 tablets for 3-6 monts. New hair growth can be stopped with krimson-35 tablets and it will also regularize your menses. Irregular menses may reappear after the course of krimson-35, but you have to learn to live with it. If your menses does not come in 3 months, you can take tablet deviry 2 times a day for 5 days to get your menses.

Cupping therapy in psoriasis?

Cupping therapy is an effective treatment for many diseases. This case puts some light on the effectiveness of cupping therapy to treat psoriasis. This case demonstrates the efficacy of cupping therapy in treating psoriasis. However, more research and trials are needed to fully elucidate the effectiveness of this therapy for all types of psoriasis with varying degrees of severity.

My LMP is Jan-27, 2016 and my periods has been skipped. I checked with the home urine test and also HCG test. Both came to be positive. Hence consulted with the gynic. She had taken a scen and told me the growth seems to be only 35 days but as per the LMP it is 45 days. After 10 days she had asked to take another scan to check with the baby growth. And I had irregular periods for the last 3 months. My question is, should I have to take the scan for the baby growth? Also will there be any difference in the growth due to irregular periods. In this case should we have to consider the LMP or the scanned growth size? Please help and advice.

Congrats for positive pregnancy test in urine and blood, but your worry is ultrasound report that is just 10 days late! your cycle is irregular but I ask you can any woman tell about the time of conception (except wives whose husbands visit them on particular days, being away on job) may be it was conception that occurred on later half of cycle. Be sure about getting a positive report which may not match the chart of lmp. Bot you will make up later. You must have known about women delivering at 36 weeks or beyond 40 weeks. This is the reason, doctors presume both babies as mature and do not require any special care in nursery unit of hospital.

Low Sperm Count - Know The Mistakes You Commit!

Low Sperm Count - Know The Mistakes You Commit!

There are a few very common things that a man consumes or does every day without even realizing, that they have a tendency to reduce his fertility. These causes start from drinking and could end with something as harmless as caffeine.

Let's see which habits can cause reduction in sperm count thereby reducing fertility of a man.

  1. Eating processed meat harms sperm quality.
  2. Excessive usage of laptop can also lead to reduction in sperm count because of the heat that a laptop releases.
  3. Hormonal imbalance also causes low sperm production.
  4. If a man is underweight or overweight, this could also lead to less production of sperm. So, a man should watch his weight before thinking of extending his family.
  5. Exposure to too much heat for a prolonged time leads to reduction in sperm count.
  6. Regular smoking also leads to reduction in sperm count.
  7. Excessive stress also causes reduction in sperm count.
  8. Regular and continuous exposure to chemicals like xylene, painting material and metal like lead also leads to low sperm count.
  9. Chemicals present in sunscreen lotion can harm a man's sperm count so one should be alert while using a sunscreen lotion.
  10. Sex toys also cause infertility in men because of presence of phthalates in  them.
  11. Regular intake of canned food can also contribute in low sperm count.
  12. Regular drinking habits reduce testosterone levels thereby reducing the quality and production of sperm.
  13. Excessive intake of canned food leads to intake of bisphenol A which lowers down the quality of the sperm.
  14. Excess intake of caffeine also leads to reduction in sperm count.
  15. Lack of exercise and laziness also reduces sperm count to a great extent.

Some of the above mentioned things can be unavoidable, but point here is that taking everything in moderate quantity doesn't do any harm but problem occurs when the intake is excessive, regular and beyond limit. So, it's better to reduce the quantity and regular use of such things than letting it affect your sperm count. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Health Benefits Of Apple

Health Benefits Of Apple

1. Get whiter, healthier teeth

An apple won't replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.

2. Curb all sorts of cancers

Scientists from the American Association for Cancer Research, among others, agree that the consumption of flavonol-rich apples could help reduce your risk of developing pancreatic cancer by up to 23 percent. Researchers at Cornell University have identified several compounds 'triterpenoids'in apple peel that have potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Their earlier research found that extracts from whole apples can reduce the number and size of mammary tumours in rats. Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute in the U.S. has recommended a high fibre intake to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

3.Decrease your risk of diabetes

Women who eat at least one apple a day are 28 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who don't eat apples. Apples are loaded with soluble fibre, the key to blunting blood sugar swings.

4.Reduce cholesterol

The soluble fibre found in apple binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.

5.Control your weight

Many health problems are associated with being overweight, among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. To manage your weight and improve your overall health, doctors recommend a diet rich in fibre. Foods high in fibre will fill you up without costing you too many calories.

At times sex does cause uterine contractions and thus may induce some bleeding or spotting. But vaginal tear can also cause this spotting. A detailed gynec check up is the only way one can diagnose these and other conditions. So meet a local gynec and get examined internally.

Breastfeeding, suppresses menstruation at least for a while. For some mothers, there may be an absence of menstruation for weeks, months, and even years while still breastfeeding. Some mothers will even need to completely wean before they see their first period. Others, once their babies begin taking supplemental foods or sleeping longer periods at night, will see the first period. Once menstruation returns it may continue to be irregular during lactation. It's not uncommon to have a shorter or longer than normal period while breastfeeding. It's also not abnormal to skip a period or see the first period return and then find that months pass before the next one. When the first period returns depends upon several factors: 1. how frequently the baby is nursing, 2. how often the baby is supplemented with bottles, 3. how long the baby is sleeping at night, 4. whether or not solids have been introduced, and 5. the mother's own individual body chemistry and the way it responds to hormonal influences associated with breastfeeding. 6. Any time the stimulation to the breast is decreased, especially at night, menstruation is likely to return soon after.
