No diet or home remedies can increase the size of the Penis. Only in certain conditions size of the Penis can be improved with the help of medicines. For making a correct diagnosis, proper evaluation is must. Then only effective medicines can be planned. If needed you can contact privately.

I have headache daily. In the night I am ok. But when I getup there is headache. please tell me why.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

Hello doctor, Actually my sister who is 17 have almost severe anemia having haemoglobin-6 mg/dl, and she also have kidney stones. I want to know what she have eat I order to recover soon and which doesn't exaggerate her stone pain.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have severe anemia and need IV injection of iron sorbitol in hospital and take iron capsules drink a lot of water for stones .the diet suggestions seem to depend on the specific type of stone that you have formed in the past (calcium and/or oxalate containing kidney stones, for example.) Definitely consult your doctor for diet recommendations but the following are possible suggestions to consider with him/her: If you had a calcium-containing kidney stone, eat less salt and salty food and try not to get more than the recommended daily amount for calcium or excessive amounts of vitamin D. If you had an oxalate-containing kidney stone, limit food that has a lot of oxalate (no need to eliminate them, just eat/drink less. This includes: Chocolate Dark green veggies (i.e. Spinach, Swiss chard, greens) Mixed nuts and peanuts Tahini and sesame seeds Beets Rhubarb Miso Chocolate soy milk Sweet potatoes Lemons to the rescue Lemon juice is thought to be helpful mainly because it contributes extraordinary amounts of citrate and citrate may help in two ways. It makes the urine less acidic (discouraging stone development) and it can bind with calcium in the urine, potentially reducing the amount of calcium available to form calcium oxalate stones.

10 Best Ways to Use Olive Oil for Consipation

10 Best Ways to Use Olive Oil for Consipation

Constipation is a very common gastrointestinal problem, which everyone experiences it at some point in life. In this condition, the suffering person either has a very difficult bowel movement or it happens less than the normal. If a person has less than three times bowel movements in a week, then he/she is suffering from constipation. In such a condition, the bowel movement becomes extremely difficult as well as painful.

 

Constipation mainly occurs due to any change in the diet, less intake of fluid, due to some medication, excessive intake of iron and calcium, lack of exercise, etc. Also, during pregnancy most of the women face this issue of constipation more or less.

 

Constipation is not a life threatening condition but it makes your life extremely difficult as well as painful. Unclear bowel movement makes you feel uneasy and uncomfortable throughout the day. There are many otc drugs that you can try to get rid of constipation but you cannot rule out their side effects completely. So in such a case, olive oil can give you much relief from the pain and suffering of constipation.

 

How does olive oil help treat constipation?

Before trying olive oil for constipation, we should be clear about how olive oil can help treat constipation properly. Let’s find out!

 

Helps to release more bile, our natural laxative: The consumption of olive oil helps the gallbladder to release more bile, which helps to digest the fat in the food properly. Apart from that the bile also maintains the moisture of the stool, so you will not face any difficulty and pain during bowel movement. It also irritates the gut mucosa, which stimulates the stool movement.

 

Reduces dilation in the intestine: The consumption of olive oil prevents the swelling, irritation and bloating of the intestine. This process, in turn, relaxes the intestine and allows the stool to pass smoothly.

 

Softens the stool: The use of olive oil coats the fecal matter and gets soaked into it, which softens the stool and makes it easy for your body to pass it smoothly.

 

Stimulates the digestive system: The use of olive oil stimulates the digestive system, which in turn digests the food properly. Proper digestion of foods means you will have a smooth and regular bowel movement.

 

Maintains the overall health of the digestive track: Olive oil is a rich source of vitamin e and k, antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids which all together help to keep the digestive track healthy. A healthy digestive track helps to keep constipation at bay.

 

Best methods to use olive oil for constipation:

 

1. Olive oil

This is one of the easiest ways of using olive oil to treat constipation. Following this olive oil home remedy will definitely help you to get rid of the constipation issue effectively.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 to 2 tbsp

 

Process:

Consume 1 to 2 tsp of olive oil in the morning on an empty stomach. Do not drink water for 1 hour after taking the olive oil. Follow this home remedy till you cure this constipation issue completely. You can also give your constipated child 1 tsp of olive oil in the morning before any food to alleviate the issue of constipation.

 

2. Olive oil and lemon juice

The high acidic content of lemon juice stimulates the digestive system. So the consumption of lemon juice helps the things to move from the digestive track smoothly. And when lemon juice gets combined with olive oil, it really works well to get rid of the constipation issue properly.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 tbsplemon juice – 1 tsp

 

Process:

Take 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil in a cup and add1 tsp of lemon juice to it. Mix both the ingredients well and then drink it.

Following this method regularly will help to treat constipation successfully.

 

3. Olive oil and orange juice

Orange juice is known as a good laxative. Its consumption creates a coating around the colon wall which promotes smoother bowel movement. Apart from that it is a rich source of fibre, which makes it a useful fruit that can help treat constipation effectively.

5. Olive oil and banana

Banana is a rich source of dietary fibre and potassium, which are beneficial for the digestive system. The consumption of banana helps the digestive system work smoothly. Potassium plays an important role to smoothen the function of the muscles in the digestive track. The insoluble fibres in banana help the food to move freely through the digestive track.

7. Olive oil and coffee

Coffee contains a good amount of caffeine, which acts as a diuretic. Its consumption improves the digestive process and stimulates the colon by triggering the contraction of the colon. In this way, caffeine speeds up the movement of fluids in the digestive track. Apart from that the warm temperature of coffee also softens the hardened feces to move smoothly.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 tbsphot coffee – 1 cup

10. Olive oil with vegetables

Note: To prepare the olive oil remedies for constipation, ensure to buy extra virgin, organic and cold pressed olive oil as this olive oil contains most of the vitamins and antioxidants.

 

Tips to follow

It is well said that prevention is better than cure. Constipation is such a condition which just makes life difficult. So you need to follow certain things in your daily life so that you can prevent this issue from occurring once again.

 

Refrain from eating foods that cause constipation or makes the condition worse. Do not eat food that contains more fats, such as cheese, red meat, white bread, hard boiled eggs, etc. Also, decrease the consumption of food with refined sugar, such as candies and cookies. Do not eat processed food. Do some mild exercises or yoga everyday to keep you active. This will promote a healthy bowel movement. Avoid taking stress as it is considered as one of the causes of constipation. Schedule your everyday bowel movement. This process will trigger your body to have a bowel movement at a particular time of the day. Drink a lot of water to keep yourself hydrated. Most of the times insufficient water consumption causes constipation. Drink minimum 8 glasses of water per day. You can also take fluid in the form of fruit or vegetable juices. Stop consuming alcohol if you are suffering from constipation as it may worsen the condition. Include fruits and vegetables that are rich in fibre in your daily diet. Like fibre-rich food, vitamin-c rich fruits also help to treat mild to severe constipation issues. So include fruits that are rich in vitamin c like orange, guava, orange, grapes, papaya, and apple in your daily diet to keep constipation at bay. You can cook your food in olive oil, add it to your marinades, and use it in your salads to get the maximum benefits of olive oil for constipation.

 

Olive oil can cure mild to moderate constipation. So use these olive oil remedies to treat constipation for sure. But after using all these olive remedies if you do not get any benefit, then consult a physician to know the underlying causes of it to get better medication.

"Lavleen I can't wake up without having a cup of tea...chai ka cup mil jaye to I feel good." Common words I hear everyday.

Tea is only a stimulant and gives that kick to keep you going. But what you are actually doing by having tea on empty stomach every time is suppressing your appetite and then because you don't feel like eating much your body gets nutrient deficient and you feel very tired by the end of the day. Not to mention the other harms it can do to your body including Acidity, Indigestion and Kidney damage.

Start your day with fruit and end with a warm cup of turmeric milk. Gradually embed green tea in your routine and replace normal tea. Walk daily. Do it for a week and feel the difference.

First thing you should do is to get rid off anxiety and stress as those are main offenders in many. You can try any of the following methods. You can do squeeze and stop technique. You can stimulate your partner to maximum before getting yourself stimulated. You can deviate your thought to something nonsexual when you about to near ejaculation. You can put on a condom or condom with anesthetic which will decrease the excessive stimulation on penis and there by prevent premature ejaculation.Hope this may help you.

How to increase time during sex. I want to over come pre ejaculation issue. Please assist.

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Sexual stamina involves lasting long during sexual intercourse and maintaining an erection for as long as possible. However, many men can get and maintain an erection yet they leave their women feeling very dissatisfied in bed. Sexual stamina is not limited to the performance of your penis. Deep, transformational sex is a whole body experience and therefore requires your whole body to be fit and ready. Don’t neglect your diet. Loading up your body with stimulants and depressants on a daily basis (in the form of caffeine, sugar, alcohol, or cigarettes) has far-reaching negative effects on your health and libido. Cut back on the coffee. Treatment - homoepathic treatment is recommended for men whose sexual performance is chronically low or those who are suffering from sexual dysfunction.

Your sense of smell can be restored. Maybe it's lost due to sinusitis or inflammation in the nasal passages. Get an xray of sinuses for diagnosis and treatment.

Homeopath, Agra
Dear patient, you are suffering from premature ejaculation this problem can make you and your partner unsatisfied during sexual intercourse. It is necessary to have appropriate time to delay ejaculation to satisfy a women completely. Proper erection is also important for your performance on bed. This actually causes from weakness in muscles and nerves of penis and just thinning of semen, so it's coming out fast. Due to your past history of smoking and alchol also made your problem more serious.
