I can't take deep breath when I want. Deep coming with my yawn or after 1-minute with taking breath. What's the reason. This all happen when once exercise and continues after I exercise also.

General Physician,
When you exercise the body needs more oxygen and hence the long breath comes. You have to just relax.

Hi, well, the cause behind all your issues seems to be sinusitis that needs to be tackled in the first place. Sinusitis basically stems from a faulty diet/ lifestyle which you shall require streamlining going forward. Given that your pain is increasingly intolerable and condition worsening with new issues surfacing, I would advise you first to consult an ent specialist and start medical treatment as advised. Simultaneously, however, following are a few things you need to take care of on a day to day basis - (a) avoid cold, hot, spicy drinks & foods (b) restrict tea, coffee, carbonated beverages et al. (c) avoid pollution, smoke, dusty areas (d) avoid direct blast of hot/ cold air. (e) follow regular lifestyle with adequate room for relaxation/ de-stressing (f) have a balanced diet, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily and ensure that the episodes of acidity/ indigestion are kept to a minimum (g) consume fruits/ vegetables rich in vit a & c. (h) amongst vegetables, onion, garlic, bitter gourd, carrot, beetroot, spinach et al help in this condition. Amla helps improve immunity and protects against infections. (i) do luke warm saline gargling at least thrice daily. (j) inhale plain steam/ medicated vapors (herbal). (k) saline nasal spray 2 to 3 times daily helps clear the nasal passage & drain the mucous/ sinus out. (l) yogasanas & pranayams like anulom vilom help in this condition (s) hope this helps. You may still connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a naturopathic treatment plan that suits you in particular and gives you a long lasting relief from your chronic issues.

My mother is suffering from asthma. What precaution she should take in this monsoon season?

do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

If steroids are given orally for long periods of time than only it will cause bone shrinkage but if given through nebulisation than it won't have any side effects

When climate changes what phenomenon happened to the asthmatic patient please explain in details.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
When climate changes what phenomenon happened to the asthmatic patient please explain in details.
Wind and rain. Rainfall can increase and stir up mold spores, and wind can blow around pollen and mold. Heat. In the summer months, increased ozone from smog, exhaust fumes, and pollutants tend to be higher and can trigger asthma symptoms. Lightning. Thunderstorms, which can generate ozone, are now thought of as an asthma trigger. Air pressure fluctuations. “Barometric pressure triggers sinus episodes, and sinusitis is a common trigger for asthma symptoms.

I have constant sneezing problem. And, this happened after I moved from NCR to bangalore. This is happening from last 2 years. Whenever I sleep (either night or, afternoon), I sneeze for around 20 times. Around 2-3 days back, I noticed that my nose is bent from inside. KIndly suggest a proper remedy. Thanks

If the nasal septum is bent too much get it surgically corrected. Meanwhile take the treatment of allergic rhinitis. I.e cetrigine tablet at night and azelastine fluticasone nasal spray. Hopefully you will be relieved. Best wishes

With allergies, you can reduce flare-ups by identifying the allergens that affect you and avoiding exposure to them. Common allergens include trees, pollen, dust mites, animal fur, mold, and insects. Allergy shots are helpful as well and can reduce your sensitivity to allergens. Talk to your doctor about what plan is right for you.
