Got blood in stool with out pain, what's the cause n suggest any medicine. If necessary.

MBBS, MD, CCEBDM(diabetology), CCMTD(thyroid dissorders)
General Physician,
If the colour of blood is bright red, then the cause is local. Most common is upper anal canal injury like piles and fissure. If the colour has turned black then upper gastro intestinal tract problem is there. For piles and fissure if not inflamed then stool softeners like isabgul just, or laxative/purgative like gudlax with high fibre diet will suffice. For other conditions a detailed checkup is needed. Thank you.

3 Ways To Supplement Your Natural Penis Enlargement Program To Maximize Your Gains

If you have done any research on penis enlargement at all before stumbling upon this article, you already know that the only safe and proven way to make permanent gains in your penis size is by using natural enlargement methods that involve just your hands. If you didn't know that already, you can either take my word for it or start reading testimonials from thousands of men around the world, all of whom tried every enlargement method under the sun, from pills to pumps to creepy gadgets, gaining nothing but humiliation and frustration until they discovered natural penis enlargement.

Bottom line, it works, and it can work for you, too, if you get on a natural penis enlargement program and stick with it. And if you're like me, you don't just want to achieve normal gains in a normal amount of time. You want to gain as much size as possible in the shortest time possible. So here are three ways you can supplement your natural enlargement program for faster, more significant size gains.

Follow a Paleo diet. Paleo is short for Paleolithic, an era in our Earth's history when the only way to survive was to be a hunter-gatherer, and a good one. Many of the diseases that are so common nowadays were unheard of then, such as heart disease, diabetes, and most cancers. This was because the food they ate -- almost exclusively meats, green vegetables, fresh fruits, and nuts -- contained none of the toxins, carcinogens, and phyto-estrogens that we now shovel into our mouths, and thus into our bodies, with impunity. The more natural diet our ancestors followed helped optimize hormone levels and engender an ideal body composition.

That's great, you're thinking, but how does this relate to penis enlargement? Simple. Many of the simple sugars and processed foods we eat today work to lower testosterone and increase estrogen in our bodies. This results in a lowered sex drive and reduced sexual performance. It also causes the frequency as well as the intensity of nocturnal erections to decrease dramatically.

Just like our muscles repair and rebuild from our gym workouts mostly when we sleep, that is when we make gains in penis size from our enlargement workouts. And it is those nocturnal erections that help expand the tissue chambers after we work them out and make them longer and thicker. You want to have these erections, and you want to have a lot of them. That is why it is crucial to stick to a diet that promotes optimal penis health.

Take up High Intensity Interval Training. If you're like I was for years, your gym workouts are probably pretty vanilla, and your routine probably sounds something like this: Chest and triceps on Monday. Back and biceps on Tuesday. Legs Wednesday, shoulders Thursday, and for cardio, jump on the stairclimber for about 25 minutes after each workout.

While this is better than sitting on the couch eating Doritos after work, there is a workout methodology that is better for your whole body -- including that one part you're trying to grow.

It's called high intensity interval training. It involves shorter but much more intense workouts. Instead of resting for several minutes between sets, in a HIIT workout, you're always moving. You may do 10 reps on the bench press, then during the following two minutes when you otherwise might be sitting on the bench checking your Facebook, you jump rope for a minute then do a minute of burpees, before returning to the bench.

This type of training not only ups testosterone, but it improves circulation and blood flow, helping your erections become bigger and more powerful.

Try Edging. Edging is a pretty simple concept. You do it when you masturbate. Instead of bringing yourself all the way to climax, you hang on the "edge" for as long as you can. This is when your penis is most engorged with blood, and staying in this state for as long as you can will help expand and build the tissue chambers that you work out with your natural routine. If "blue balls" are a problem, go ahead and allow yourself to ejaculate -- but not until you've "edged" for at least 20 minutes.

Orgasm - How Can You Delay Yours?

Orgasm - How Can You Delay Yours?

As Indian society is becoming more and liberal, men and women, young and old want to know about the best methods through which they can enhance their sexual pleasure. Most of these are related to delaying an orgasm.  There are five proven methods to accomplish it, but first we need to understand a bit more about orgasm. 

How long does it take to orgasm?

The length varies for men and women, with women orgasming much later than men because men are biologically designed to help perpetuate the human species, with women acting as reproductive machines. However, societal changes have made people prefer sex as a means of enjoyment and not just reproduction. In general, it takes women 14 minutes to orgasm, and men 3.

5 Ways to delay an orgasm

  1. Relax during sex. An excited man is more likely to climax sooner. Men must remember that the ability to relax becomes stronger with age.
  2. Do not masturbate as much because, while it trains men what to expect in terms of sexual pleasure, it also causes them to climax earlier. Excessive masturbation sensitizes the penis making it less effective at control and more likely to climax and ejaculate earlier.
  3. Eat healthy because it dramatically improves a man’s sex life. This means avoiding fatty foods, caffeine, and prescription and illegal drugs as much as possible. It also means regular exercise and regular consumption of a lot of leafy green vegetables and fruits.
  4. Use natural ejaculation control techniques to control and lengthen time to orgasm.
  5. Take copious amounts of safe and natural herbal supplements to replenish the chemicals, hormones, and nutrients necessary to optimize sexual performance and delay time to orgasm. These supplements also support penile health and size. These supplements strengthen the body’s nerve system which controls penile stimulation and delays time to orgasm.

By following the five techniques mentioned above, it is possible for even men who have the most trouble satisfying their women in bed, and who are the worst sexual performers to have a great sex life. Since a great sex life improves overall emotional relationships, this means that the men will have better quality lives, and will be happier in the long-run. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

As the germs reach the lungs, this organ becomes infected and inflamed with a buildup of fluid. It can lead to breathing problems which can make inhibit the entrance of oxygen in the bloodstream. This prevents the cells in the body in performing their normal functions and infections cannot be flushed out of the body.

What are the common signs and symptoms of pneumonia?

It may also include unconsciousness, lethargy, convulsions and also feeding problems in infants. There is a type of pneumonia that does not show any major sign but which may interfere with daily functions is referred to as walking pneumonia.

How can pneumonia in children be prevented?
Having healthy habits and practising good hygiene is the best way to avoid pneumonia. Children must be encouraged to clean the hands frequently, coughing or sneezing into the elbow or sleeves instead of palms and to avoid interaction with people who are affected by any infection and flu. As a parent, you should provide proper nutrition to help your child have strong immunity and make sure that they get sufficient rest to ward off infection. You should not smoke in front of your kids as passive smoking is dangerous and help them stay away from pollutants.

You should ensure that your child is immunized as per prescribed schedule. Also, you should know about the warning signs of pneumonia and other ailments of the lungs which include fast breathing, frequent coughing, and difficulty in breathing to detect pneumonia in its early stages. And take them to visit the doctor as soon as you observe the signs. When it comes to an infant, you should breastfeed him/her as mother’s milk contains all the vital nutrients, hormones, antioxidants and antibodies that your child requires to ward off infections including pneumonia.
