Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.

Heavy Heart Palpitation after having food. Even Small meals trigger the said effect. What is Happening.
Heart palpitations are a feeling that your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering. You may notice heart palpitations in your chest, throat, or neck. Heart palpitations can be bothersome or frightening. They usually aren't serious or harmful, though, and often go away on their own. Most of the time, they're related to stress and anxiety or to consumption of stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. Palpitations also often occur during pregnancy. In rare cases, palpitations can be a sign of a more serious heart condition. Therefore, if you have heart palpitations, make arrangements to see your doctor. And seek immediate medical attention if along with palpitations, you experience shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or fainting. A thorough physical examination and Medical History of your problem is required to rule out for any underlying cause. If an underlying cause is found, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate palpitations. If your palpitations are not related to an underlying cause, lifestyle changes, including stress management and the avoidance of common triggers, can help prevent them. Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you . ACONITE NAP 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 5-10 minutes during increased heart beat .Take it till your heart beat is normal.

Dear lybrate user few ectopic beats are not dangerous if there is no heart disease. It may give gives a feeling. In presence of structural or coronary disease than it needs to be seen. These are benign and if not paid attention will not cause any disability.

Cholesterol is a type of fat. It has both good and bad effects on the body. Your body uses cholesterol to make hormones and to build and maintain nerve cells. However, when your body has too much cholesterol, deposits of fat in the blood called plaque form inside blood vessel walls. The blood vessel walls thicken and the vessels become narrower (a condition called atherosclerosis). This change in the blood vessels reduces blood flow through the blood vessels, possibly leading to heart attacks or strokes. Most of the cholesterol in your blood is made by your liver from the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins you eat. You also get cholesterol by eating animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy products. How is cholesterol measured? When you get your cholesterol checked, your health care provider will give you a number for your total cholesterol level. You can use the chart below to see if your total cholesterol is high.   Total Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) less than 200 good 200 to 239 borderline high 240 or above high When your cholesterol is measured and found to be high, your health care provider may also check the amount of LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins) in your blood. LDL and HDL carry cholesterol through your blood. LDLs carry a lot of cholesterol, leave behind fatty deposits on your artery walls, and contribute to heart disease. HDLs do the opposite. They clean the artery walls and remove extra cholesterol from the body, thus lowering the risk of heart disease. LDL is called "bad" cholesterol. (You can think of "L" for "lousy" cholesterol.) HDL is called "good" cholesterol (think of "H" for "healthy" cholesterol). It is good to have low levels of LDL and high levels of HDL. The recommended levels of LDL are shown in the following chart:   Recommended LDL Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) Less than 160 For most people Less than 130 If you have an increased risk of heart disease Less than 100 If you have heart disease, diabetes, peripheral artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, or symptomatic carotid artery disease For HDL, a level below 40 mg/dL is too low. The recommended HDL level is 45 mg/dL or higher. How can I control my cholesterol level? Cholesterol levels can usually be controlled by eating right, exercising, and not smoking. Follow these diet guidelines to help control your cholesterol: Reduce the amount of cholesterol in your diet. The American Heart Association recommends eating no more than 250 to 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Eat less fat. Fats should contribute no more than 30% of your daily calories. Only 10% of the fat you eat should be saturated fat. Some kinds of fats are better than others. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are better than saturated fats. Monounsaturated fats are found in olive oil, canola oil, and avocados. Polyunsaturated fats are found in fish and some vegetable oils. Saturated fat raises your blood cholesterol because it makes it hard for the body to clear the cholesterol away. Saturated fat is found in different amounts in almost all foods. Butter, some oils, meat, and poultry fat contain a lot of saturated fat. Adjust the amount of calories you eat and exercise regularly to maintain a lean body weight. To control the amount of fat and cholesterol you eat: Check food labels for fat and cholesterol content. Limit the amount of butter and margarine you eat.Use sunflower, safflower, soybean, canola, corn, or olive oil rather than tropical oils such as palm or coconut. Use salad dressings and margarine made with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.Use egg whites or egg substitutes rather than whole eggs. Replace whole-milk dairy products with nonfat or low-fat milk, cheese, spreads, and yogurt. Eat skinless chicken, turkey, fish, and meatless entrees more often than red meat.Choose lean cuts of meat and trim off all visible fat. Keep portion sizes moderate. Avoid fatty desserts such as ice cream, cream-filled cakes, and cheesecakes. Choose fresh fruits, nonfat frozen yogurt, Popsicles, etc. Reduce the amount of fried foods, vending machine food, and fast food you eat. Limit the amount of nuts you eat, especially nuts high in saturated fat. Examples of nuts that are especially high in saturated fat are cashews, pistachios, and Brazil and macadamia nuts. Eat fruits and vegetables (especially fresh fruits and leafy vegetables), beans, and whole grains daily. The fiber in these foods helps lower cholesterol. Look for low-fat or nonfat varieties of the foods you like to eat, or look for substitutes. Exercise goes hand-in-hand with a healthy diet for controlling cholesterol. Exercise helps because it: Keeps your weight down. Decreases your total cholesterol level. Decreases your LDL (bad cholesterol).Increases your HDL (good cholesterol). A good exercise program includes aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is any activity that keeps your heart rate up (such as swimming, jogging, walking, and bicycling). You should get 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least every other day. If you haven't been exercising, ask your health care provider for an exercise prescription and start your new exercise program slowly. If you smoke, quit. Smoking increases your risk of heart disease because it lowers HDL levels. High cholesterol may run in families. Know your family history and discuss it with your health care provider. In summary, to control your cholesterol level: Eat healthy. Get regular exercise. Don't smoke. Check your cholesterol yearly. For low Vit D, take Vit D Supplements, once a week, and spend atleast 20 min in sunlight.

To soften rough hair, use fenugreek seeds. Powder the seeds and add water to make a thick paste. For visible results, apply regularly on the scalp for a month at least. You can also apply warm oil with lime and egg on the scalp. Wrap head in a warm towel. Leave until it cools and wash thoroughly. Repeat twice a week to soften hair.

Hi sir this is kumar I tested for hiv at 13 months by tridot test the result is negative but frequent throat infection.
That can be due to seasonal variations, viral infection, not due to HIV. Just consult your practitioner, but do not ask him/her any HIV related question, else they will be misguided and put you in vicious circle.
