I have PCOD and suffering from hair fall, I read somewhere that applying onion juice daily on hair is effective. Do I need to wash my hair everyday with shampoo to rinse off the juice? Because it said apply daily for best result. I'm afraid of it as daily shampooing is bad for hair. Can you suggest any other ways for the regrowth of my hair?

Pcod is a common cause of androgenic alopecia which is also called as female pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts refeeding from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. This may also be accompanied by severe dandruff. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is a lotion and tablets. There is no other alternative. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects on the hair roots. Along with this, you can also consider platelet rich plasma therapy for faster results. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting. I can give guidance and then you can continue treatment on your own.

May I know the reasons for the cause of ovarian cyst and could you please tell me the precautions to be taken?

MBBS
Sexologist, Jaipur
A follicle develops in each lady every month in the ovary. It ruptures in the middle of the cycle and releases egg. If by any reason it fails to rupture it becomes cyst. It might rupture on its own in the next cycle. If not some medicines are required. Lead a healthy active life,

5 White Poisons That We Eat Unknowingly

5 White Poisons That We Eat Unknowingly

We might be surprised to know that unknowingly we are consuming 5 white poisons in our daily meal. Forget getting nutrients from these items, we end up troubling our health by consuming these food items which are not at all good for our health and increase risk of developing diseases like cancer, hypertension, bone health issues and diabetes.

    Pasteurized cow milk: the process of pasteurization keeps the milk good for a longer period, but harms its nutritive value. It removes enzymes, vitamin a, b 12 and c from the milk. The process also transfers hormones and antibiotics into the milk. Pasteurization destroys beneficial bacteria found in raw cow milk. It kills the natural enzymes and destroys all its phosphatase, which is essential for calcium absorption. Calcium works with vitamin d, which is vital to the growth and health of children as well as improving immune system. Considering all these facts, we should avoid consuming pasteurized cow milk.
    White or refined rice: the process of refining rice leads to the removal of the outer layer and germ from it. The rice is left with endosperm, only. This layer contains starch in a huge quantity, which can increase your blood sugar or glucose levels to a great extent.
    Refined sugar: sugar contains a lot of calories, with no essential nutrients & because of that it is considered as part of ‘empty’ calories. It can have harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes, overweight/obesity, liver diseases. Before sugar enters the bloodstream from the digestive tract, it is broken down into two simple sugars: glucose and fructose. For people who are inactive, large amounts of fructose from added sugars get turned into fat in the liver. Because of the harmful effects of sugar on the function of insulin, it leads to type ii diabetes. Recommended intake: worldwide, it is recommended that men can have 9 teaspoons of sugar per day and women can have 6 teaspoons of sugar per day. However, considering the tendency of Indians towards sugar intolerance and diabetes, it is recommended not to go beyond 5 teaspoons of added sugar per day which includes sugar available in cookies, fruit juices etc.
    Refined salt: salt makes your body hold on to water. If you eat too much salt, the extra water stored in your body increases your blood pressure. More salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure will be. In India 1 in 3 adult are affected by high bp and majority of them are not aware of it. Therefore, it is recommended to follow low-salt diet. Normal table salt contains iodine, which is needed for a healthy body. But refining of salt removes iodine from the salt. Fluorides are added during the process of refining which is bad when consumed in excess. Recommended intake: aim to consume less than 1500 mg of sodium per day and definitely it should not go beyond 2300 mg per day. 1500 mg sodium is equivalent to 0.75 teaspoon of salt per day.
    White flour (maida): known as ‘white poison’, white flour is becoming necessity for all of us but it impacts our health drastically. Use of maida & its products usage is increasing rapidly in our day-to-day life. Sometimes, we are consuming it in form of bread at our home and sometimes, in the market/food joints in form of fast foods. During processing of maida from wheat, endosperm of the wheat is removed from the germ (wheat germ) and the bran (wheat bran), which is very crucial for digestion. As all necessary nutrients are lost during processing of maida, foods made from it utilize nutrients from the body for absorption. As a result, our body gets depleted of vitamins and minerals.

We are new Dad and Mom and our child is 4 weeks old. My wife could not get enough milk through breast feeding. Which fruit/food will help to get milk and keep her strong?

Both of you need to be confident. Enjoy, you are blessed with a bundle of joy. Don't worry about milk secretion, it will be always enough. If she is passing seven eight times clear watery urine and gaining weight about 500 to 700 gms per month then she is getting enough feeding. For first couple of weeks child may lose some weight. The food she enjoys most is fine for her. Happy and confident mother will serve the best interest of the child. Remember cry doesn't necessarily mean child is hungry, most of the times it means child wants your attention. Talk to her like a friend.

My wife is pregnant for 2 months and she has fever so what precaution should take?
If fever is there more than 100 degree then take paracetamol tablet or do sponging. As high grade is dangerous for the baby. If fever remains for more than 3 days then get blood test, urine examination done.

I am going to have sex first time with my girlfriend how to make it less painful please tell me?

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
For sex to have less pain, you must do lot of foreplay. Your erection will happen even after touching her or seeing her boobs and curves but she will need time for her vagina to get secretions and getting wet to allow your organ to enter peacefully and firmly. Only her arousal to full extent will make this less painful. It is your duty to suck and press her so much that she would demand your dick with wide legs. Then this is less painful, enjoying and relaxing act with many once mores√√√

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Not necessarily. This is true that there is higher risk of such problem in subsequent pregnancy. 1Folic acid supplementation in perinatal period prevent to a great extent such open neural defects with or without hydrocephalus. 2 alpha fetoprotein estimation by aminocentesis in first trimester preferably at 8 weeks of gestation help in diagnosis of similar problem.

That is correct. The menstrual abnormalities need to be controlled with thyroxine supplementation. Once your tsh levels are back to normal you can try to conceive.

Hi, the semen will liquefy after some time say 15 -30 minutes after ejaculation. It is normal and it is required for conceiving. This will make the sperm more motile and will help in ascent of the sperm towards tubes which is necessary for conception.
