Doctor told Me if you continue to drink you have less chance to survive if you will follow healthy life style then it could be you will survive for 10 or more years as per my current liver status. I have family wife and two kids 9 and 3 years I want to live for my family. But alcohol withdrawal symptoms making me helpless. Although I did not drink for 4 months. I feel heavy forehead burning eyes dizziness can not tolerate light. Live in as room where no light being switched on. Can not go outside in the day when I face light I feel heavy eyes dizziness like I am losing control over my mind. It feels as my brain is covered when I see around me it looks like darkness and I feel I would be faint Its been six months since I have not gone outside for long I keep my eyes close most of times it realize me that I am safe and wouldn't be faint. I feel sad helpless always think about health and blame that I did not do good for previous life that's why I am losing it. Fear of dying fell I can not breath hospital comes in to my mind where I would be saved When I got frustrated due to my unwillingness I think drink till unconscious and do suicide But whenever I go outside my three year son says papa where are you going then I stop myself and try to regain the energy to keep me fit. I just need your advice these symptoms are related to liver problem or depression or alcoholic withdrawal symptoms.
It is important to have a healthy diet and proper nutrition for women while pregnant in order to keep themselves and their unborn baby healthy. Prenatal nutrition focuses upon the nutrition of the mother before and during pregnancy. It affects the birth weight and development of the infants. The foods that pregnant women need during their pregnancy for themselves and their child’s health are as follows
- They should have oranges and its juice as much as possible. It is rich in Vitamin C and folic acid. It also contains potassium which lowers one’s blood pressure, which might be one of the key concerns during pregnancy. Foods containing folic acid should be taken right before conception and in the early weeks of pregnancy to avoid the birth defects of the baby in its brain and spinal cord. Other sources of folic acid include green leafy vegetables, beans, peanuts, asparagus, peas and other enriched grain products.
- Having yogurt helps pregnant women. It contains protein and more calcium than milk. It also serves to reduce the risk of having yeast infections.
- Broccoli is also a good source of calcium (for healthy bone) and is rich in vitamin C, foliate and Vitamin B6.
- Beans and lentils are rich in iron (for healthy blood) and proteins are highly needed for the health of both the pregnant woman and her off-spring.
- Figs, whether fresh or dried up, contains more fiber than other vegetables along with plenty of potassium, calcium and iron.
- A healthy diet plan for a pregnant for the well-being of both herself and her unborn baby per day is as follows-
- 6 to 11 servings of grains.
- 3 to 5 servings of diet rich in vegetables.
- 2 to 4 servings of diet with fruits.
- 4 to 6 servings of diet containing milk.
- 3 to 4 servings of meat and foods containing proteins.
- 6 to 8 glasses of water, fruit juice and milk.
- Limiting the consumption of fatty foods and sweets.

A person, in order to be a successful sportsman or sportswoman needs to take a good care of his or her diet plans on a daily basis. They need more energy, proteins, vitamins, calories, minerals, carbohydrates and fats than other people, who are not involved in sports. Also, the requirement of energy varies in different sportsperson.
On an average, a sportsman below 30 years of age needs 3000 Kilo calories of food whereas those beyond 30 years need 2800-3000 Kilo calories of food daily.
The different requirements in the diets of a sportsman are explained as follows:
- Carbohydrates: It is found in whole grains and fruits. Also the diet should comprise of foods rich in fiber.
- Proteins: Proteins are the building blocks of the body which is why a sportsperson need it the most. It builds their immunity and increases the ability of the body to handle physical stress and strain. It is found in chicken, fish egg whites, milk, yoghurts, beans etc.
- Fats: They are required for the proper lubrication of the bones. They also help in the absorption and transportation of fat soluble vitamins. Have foods with saturated fats like nuts, olive oil, fatty fish, low fat milk and low fat dairy products.
- Vitamins & Minerals: Adequate amount of vitamins maintain the health and integrity of the cell bodies in the body. It also fights against the stress by destroying few unnecessary substances in the body and increasing antioxidants.
- Hydration: Proper hydration of the body is essential for a sportsperson in addition to other necessary nutrient requirements since it increases the functionality of the person. This is because proteins might result in constipation in the body the effect of which is nullified by the supply of adequate amount of water.
- Fiber: Apart from these, foods rich in fiber are also required since presence of adequate amount fiber in the body helps in having regular bowel movement in a person.

But since last 10 months I started having pain in my stomach as well on my back sometimes (not severe or regular) and my bad that I still continued the intake of excessive alcohol. Last week I had tooth ache due to which I had 7-8 very strong pain killers in total in 3 days with the regular drinking. Since last three days I am having ammonia taste in my mouth. Also I have back kidney pain on the both sides. I have stopped drinking and have decided to discontinue it completely. Can my body cure itself?(I want to avoid going to doctor as my family would know about it) What are the foods I need to eat and not to eat? I am already having lots of water. Can you please provide me healthy food guide for this so that my body recovers quickly. How long it would take to recover this of it's own? If the situation worsen I would definitely go for lab testes and Doctor. But as of now I hope my body can recover by itself. Please suggest.
