Your feelings of being discriminated are reflective of Indian mindset which is heavily biased for a male child. This bias is also root cause of female foeticide and a skewed male to female ratio. The bias is based on beliefs that sons are assets and daughters are liabilities which is completely incorrect in present times when girls study more, earn like boys in any profession and can be independent. I suggest you ignore such behavior of your parents, esp mother. You focus on your study/career/ life goals as you would like them to be. With all your energy, try to be as independent, educated and confident about yourself as possible in your circumstances and have a network of friends, guides, colleagues who are strong and well meaning citizens of 21st century India. Don't feel vulnerable physically, emotionally or economically. Take charge of your own life and don't let old and wrong thinking of your mother dampen your spirits. Best wishes.

Masturbation cause weak memory that I am not able to learn for long period of time.

Masturbation cause weak memory that I am not able to learn for long period of time.
MAsturbation does not affect memory, it is a false belief. There should be other reasons for memory loss. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

Dear Lybrate User, Many couples think that they are poles apart. Husband and wife come from a different family/cultural/social/financial/educational backgrounds and each of them has a firm set of values and beliefs. Each one believes that only his/her values and beliefs are right/true and the other person is wrong, hence the conflict starts. In the initial period of marriage, each partner is trying to make the other partner happy and while doing so they compromise a lot on their own needs. At this stage in the relationship, there are no "personal boundaries" - everything belongs to both of them and both try to adjust a lot. But, as the time goes by, the "personal boundaries" start snapping back and this is the stage in the relationship, where the conflict starts. In a marital relationship, it is important to understand the needs and feelings of one's spouse. Giving each other, appropriate personal space and respecting other partner's views is also essential. Effective communication is vital for any relationship. It is possible that due to hormonal changes your wife might be experiencing some mood swings, but it need not cause so much disturbance in your family life. You may seek Professional help if you are in distress. Please consult a Marriage Counsellor. Take care.

Hi, seems you are having four issues. Nightfall, excessive masturbation, obesity and premature ejaculation. Lets focus on masturbation. Hi, Contrary to general belief ,Masturbation is almost certainly ok for your sex life. The fact is that most males masturbate. Masturbation isn't only about sex, it's a routine way of relieving stress, clearing your head before work, or going to sleep. But off course too much of anything can be bad. It leads to anxiety and loss of control over body mechanics. Though it may be ok thrice in a week, too much of it affects the senses and sensibility of an individual. Suggestions for you to reduce frequency of masturbation: 1. Read good books, newspaper 2. Spend time with family members 3. Daily walk 30 minutes 4. Avoid porn 5. Avoid spending times with not so good friends and alone. A video consultation with us is recommended for all your issues.

Popular Health Tips

Phimosis And Circumcision

Phimosis And Circumcision
  • Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin (aka prepuce) is tight and cannot be pulled back (retracted).  This resuts in poor hygiene and repeated infections of the forskin and the glans penis (a condition known as balanoposthitis).  Phimosis may also result in repeated trauma to the foreskin leading to cuts on the foreskin which sometimes may bleed.  Phimosis may also lead to pain during intercourse or difficulty in intercourse.  
  • The treatment for phimosis is circumcision which involves removal of the foreskin surgically.  The traditional technique involves cutting the foreskin with a surgical blade or scissors.  Recent techniques include laser circumcision and stitchless circumcision.  These recent techniques although more expensive than the traditional ones, provide better cosmesis and lesser pain.  
  • Other indications for circumcision include religious beliefs such as in Muslim population, recurrent infection and cosmesis.  
  • Apart from circumcision, another procedure known as a frenuloplasty / preputioplasty can also be used for selected cases of a tight foreskin.  These procedures have the advantage of preserving the foreskin which might be desirable for some individuals.

Autism - What Diet Should Be Followed?

Autism - What Diet Should Be Followed?

Autism is a condition that afflicts many children around the globe and continues well into adulthood, with far-ranging and lifelong repercussions. While there is no permanent cure for this debilitating condition, one can turn to a number of treatments and management methods in order to take care of the symptoms and suppress the onset of the same. Let us find out more about the causes of the condition as well as the diagnosis, diet and homeopathic treatment for the same.

Causes

This is a neurological disease that children are usually born with. It may arise due to genetic or environmental factors. This is a complex ailment that has a bearing on the social and communication skills of the child and it affects his/her development as the child grows into an adult. Intake of drugs and other kinds of harmful medications during pregnancy are the most notable causes of this disease, while a faulty carrier gene could also bring on this condition in many cases. Exposure to many kinds of chemicals may also lead to the onset of this condition.

Diagnosis

While there are no lab tests that can determine the presence of this condition, doctors usually conduct the diagnosis on the basis of the symptoms, including constant tantrums, repetition of words as well as slurring, and over sensitivity towards pain. Further, a clinical evaluation based on the milestones touched by the child in the development process will also be studied carefully in order to make the right diagnosis. Screening tests can help determine the presence of this condition.

Diet

There is a large body of medical practitioners who hold the belief that the diet of a patient can have a large bearing on how he or she reacts to autism and its symptoms. As per many medical studies, it is known that these patients are not able to digest gluten and casein very well, which is why they should eliminate the same from their diet. Therefore, the patients must stick to gluten-free food like rice, vegetables, corn, soy and even fruits. Further, they should even try to avoid casein-rich food like dairy.

Homeopathic Treatment

These medicines should always be prescribed by a doctor. There are about 20 different types of medicines available to treat and manage the symptoms, especially if they arise due to genetic reasons. These may be prescribed for a period of six months to one year at a time, depending on the severity of the symptoms. The Houston Homeopathy Method has been known to give relief to over hundreds of children suffering from this ailment. Constitutional homeopathy can also be used in such cases so as to bring some respite from the symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Signs Of A Heart Attack!

Signs Of A Heart Attack!

Heart attacks often show some visible signs for concern. While many may not face the chest-clutching moment, there are other symptoms that are hard to miss. In fact, some heart attack symptoms are not even related to the chest. People suffering from cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure or above the age of 60 should especially be more careful about these symptoms. Here is a list of few alarming signs and symptoms of a heart attack:

  1. Discomfort in the chest: This is the most visible and common signs of a heart attack. A blocked artery can lead to a heart attack with symptoms such as tightness, pressure and intense pain in the chest. The discomfort typically last for a minute or longer. It must be kept in mind that a heart attack is entirely possible without feeling any pain whatsoever.
  2. Heartburn, nausea, stomach pain and indigestion: Many people reportedly face these symptoms before a heart attack. It is more likely for a woman to face these symptoms compared to a man. These conditions can happen in isolation as well. But a combination of these symptoms to a person suffering from blood pressure, high cholesterol should be taken seriously.
  3. The pain slowly shifts to the arm: This is another classic example of a heart attack. A symptom that starts from the left side of the body and radiates down. Even a constant and dull pain in the arm has resulted in heart attacks for many patients.
  4. Feeling of light-headedness: A sudden feeling of lightheadedness along with an acute chest pain is a very good sign of a heart attack. This symptom necessarily indicates that the blood pressure of the person has suddenly decreased and the heart is not able to pump enough blood.
  5. Jaw or throat pain: Jaw or throat pain by itself is nowhere related to the heart. Going by common beliefs, it can arise from sinus, muscular issue or simply a cold. Medical science states otherwise. If an ongoing chest pain spreads towards jaw or throat, it can well be an ensuing heart attack. Seeking immediate medical attention is necessary in such cases.
  6. Snoring: Loud snoring that sounds like choking or grasping can be a sign of sleep apnea. This is a condition when an individual stop breathing for few seconds making the heart pump more blood. If the condition persists, a doctor might suggest doing a sleep pattern analysis using a CPAP machine to identify if there is any possible threat of a heart attack.
  7. A persistent cough: A long lasting cough that produces pink mucus can be a very visible sign of a heart failure. This is the condition when the heart can’t keep pace with the demands of the body. This should be immediately reported to a doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

7 Foods You Should Never Reheat!

7 Foods You Should Never Reheat!

There is no denying the fact that most foods taste the best when served hot. Most of us consider it a healthy practice to reheat the food before eating. But what if we tell you that you have been getting the facts all wrong? Certain foods when reheated can do more harm than good. Mentioned below are some of the foods that should never be reheated.

  1. Mushrooms: Mushrooms can enhance the taste of any food dish. We often keep some of the preparations aside to be savored the next day, an unknown mistake that can cost you dearly. Mushrooms are a rich source of protein. On reheating, the proteins tend to deteriorate, causing stomach upset and digestive problems. Using reheated mushroom repeatedly can even result in cardiac problems.
  2. Chicken: Having chicken in this list can be quite a heartbreak. Many people use the cooked chicken for 2-3 days. Again, chicken is also an excellent source of protein, reheating which can result in health complications such as digestive problems. If you want to stay healthy, avoid reheating the cooked chicken.
  3. Celery and spinach: Spinach and celery are both commonly used in soups. Nobody wants to have their soup cold. Spinach and celery are rich in nitrates. So when we reheat the soup to make it more palatable, the nitrates present in the ingredients get converted to nitrites. Nitrite is carcinogenic and can be extremely toxic to the body. For the same reason, do not reheat any food dish containing turnips, beet, and carrots.
  4. Eggs: Seldom will you find a person who does not like eggs. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, boiled, scrambled or in a curry, you can never get bored of eating eggs. Like chicken meat and mushrooms, eggs are an excellent source of proteins, reason enough to include them in your diet. However, reheating egg preparations destroy all the associated health benefits as the protein in the egg deteriorates resulting in digestive problems. The best idea would be to prepare the dish and have it immediately.
  5. Rice: Almost everyone reheats the rice before eating with the belief that having cold rice can cause health problems, This is a misconception that will do you no good. Rice cooked should be eaten immediately. It is believed that uncooked rice contains bacterial spores that often causes food poisoning. When you keep the cooked rice unrefrigerated at room temperature, these spores undergo rapid multiplication. Reheating will do the spores no harm. If you want to store cooked rice, always refrigerate it.
  6. Potatoes:  Storing the cooked potatoes at room temperature can act as a catalyst enhancing the growth of Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium responsible for botulism (a type of food poisoning that can result in flaccid paralysis of muscles).
  7. Oil: Certain oils such as those of walnut, avocado, grape seeds, and hazelnut can become smelly with an unpleasant taste when reheated (as these oils have a low smoke point). If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Traffic Jams - Did You Know They Can Make You Prone To Cancer?

Traffic Jams - Did You Know They Can Make You Prone To Cancer?

The most dreadful part of going to work and coming back home is getting stuck in a traffic jam. Whether you’re driving yourself or being driven home, a traffic jam can sap your spirits and make you feel tired even though you’re not really exerting yourself. According to a recent study, these traffic jams not only increase your stress level, but also make your body susceptible to cancer.

Yes! They can be a major reason behind your ill health

  1. Bumper to bumper traffic that moves at snail pace can be very stressful, especially if you have to get somewhere at a particular time. The irritation of not being able to move at your desired pace adds on to the million other things going on in your mind. The body reacts to stress by increasing blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Long-term stress can lead to digestive problems, fertility issues ad a weakened immune system, which makes the body vulnerable to other diseases and infections. Stress can also lead to the development of behavior like smoking, drinking and overeating which can increase a person’s risk of cancer.
  2. Pollution levels are highest at traffic signals and at traffic jams. This is because, at a busy intersection, cars go through various stages such as accelerating, braking and idling in a restricted space. Each of these actions are accompanied with emission of toxic gases and fine particles of matter which concentrate in an area and take longer to disperse. Contrary to popular belief, people in cars can be more affected by these pollutants than pedestrians. This is especially true in case where people have their windows up and fans on as the fans suck in the polluted air leading to a buildup of toxic gases inside the car. When these gases and particulate matter is inhaled, they get stuck in the nose and throat and are absorbed into the bloodstream. Long-term exposure to this can have serious negative effects on the body leading to higher risk of cancer. To avoid this, ensure that the AC setting of your car or fan is set to only circulate air inside the car without drawing in polluted air from outside.

Also, try and find ways to avoid traffic jams. If your office allows, maybe you could try changing your timing a little. Experiment with routes. Often the inner roads have more twists and turns but much less traffic. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
