Slower Heartbeat - How It Can Make You Feel?

Having bradycardia implies that your heart beats very slowly. For the vast majority, a heart beats from sixty to hundred pulses a minute while very few are viewed as ordinary. In case your heart beats under sixty times each minute, it is slower than usual. A moderate heart rate can be ordinary and solid. On the other hand it could be an indication of an issue with the heart's electrical framework.

For a few people, moderate heart rate does not create any issues. It can be an indication of being exceptionally fit. Sound youthful grown-ups and sports persons frequently have heart rates of fewer than sixty beats a minute. In other individuals, bradycardia is an indication of an issue with the heart's electrical framework. It implies that the heart's regular pacemaker isn't working right or that the electrical pathways of the heart are disturbed.

A moderate heart rate may make you:

  1. Feel blurry eyed or woozy.
  2. Feel short of breath and feel that it’s harder to work out.
  3. Feel tired.
  4. Have neck pain or an inclination that your heart is beating or rippling (palpitations).
  5. Feel bewildered or experience difficulty concentrating.
  6. Black out, if a moderate heart rate causes a drop in pulse.

A few people do not have side effects, or their indications are mild to the point that they think they are quite recently part of getting more seasoned. You can discover how quick your heart is beating by checking your heart rate. In case your pulse is moderate or uneven, talk to a specialist.

How bradycardia is dealt with depends on what is causing it. Treatment likewise relies on symptoms. Given below are some of the symptoms:

  1. In case harm to the heart's electrical framework causes your heart to pulsate too quickly, you will presumably need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a gadget put under your skin that revises the moderate heart rate. Some people might have a kind of bradycardia that requires a pacemaker.
  2. In case another medical issue, for example, hypothyroidism or an electrolyte irregularity, is bringing about a moderate heart rate, treating that issue may cure the bradycardia.
  3. In case a medicine is making your heart to pulsate too gradually, your specialist may change the dosage or recommend an alternate drug. In case you can't quit taking that medicine, you may require a pacemaker.

Bradycardia is frequently the aftereffect of another heart condition, so finding a way to carry on with a heart-solid way of life will enhance your general health. This may include:

  1. Showing at least a bit of restraint and dedication to a good diet routine that includes a considerable amount of organic products, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and low-fat or nonfat dairy foods.
  2. Being gradually on most, if not all, days of the week. Your specialist can let you know what type of exercise is okay for you.
  3. Getting more fit in case you have to, and maintaining a solid weight.
  4. Not smoking.
  5. Overseeing other medical issues, for example, hypertension or elevated cholesterol.

Hair Loss - How Homeopathy Can Treat It?

Hair growth is a natural process that can also take place with assisted treatments. There are quite a few solutions and treatments available. Quite a lot of these are fads while some can be genuine. Homeopathy is an option which is effective for regrowth of hair and curing baldness. This is often the last stop of treatment for people who have failed at restoring their previous state of hair. These are a few well known remedies that homeopathy prescribes for baldness.

  1. Silicea: It is very commonly used and is processed from sandstones and human tissues. It strengthens the hair and reduces dryness by giving essential nourishment to the hair follicles. It is a very good growth enhancer.
  2. Kalium Carbonicum: It is made from compounds which the Egyptians used in glass preparation and is another effective homeopathic medicine. It stops the thinning of hair and reduces its brittleness as well. This in turn increases hair growth.
  3. Lycopodium: Premature baldness shows a dramatically marked response on the use of this miracle homeopathic drug. Women suffering from post-partum hair loss also benefit a lot from using Lycopodium. It is formed from the distillation of evergreen plant spores, such as club moss.
  4. Natrum Muriaticum: Table salt (sodium chloride) is used to prepare this homeopathic medicine. Natrum Muriaticum is especially beneficial when dry crusts form on the scalp and dandruff is the primary reason for hair loss. It even helps when hair fall is triggered by menstrual problems or any skin disorder. This homeopathic remedy is also effective in treating hormonal imbalance related hair loss. Emotional and sensitive people are generally prescribed this drug by their homeopath.
  5. Phosphorous: Another tried and tested hair growth enhancer is phosphorous. People who have baldness in patches and lose hair in clumps are benefitted by this homeopathic medicine. People who suffer from minor scalp ailments or those who lose hair due to excess dandruff are also prescribed this drug by their homeopath.
  6. Kalium Sulphuricum: Hair loss due to flaky dandruff is treated with Kalium Sulphuricum and it is available in tablet and liquid form. It contains some amounts of sulphur and hence shouldn’t be over used. It is generally prescribed for twice a day application. Generally it isn’t recommended in excess and its use should be stopped after two weeks.
  7. Arnica is also an excellent remedy apart from Jaborandi and berberis vulgaris. Hairloss due to genetic heredity is not a disease. Only alopecia due to scalp infection, diseases, and lack of nutrition.
  8. Jaborandi: A good hair restorer which also blackens whitening hair in youngsters.

Please go head with gynaecologist. Don't ignore the pain in private part. Probably due to infection. Gynaecologist is the correct person for your problems. Drink more pure water. Micturation (pissing) is one of the natural body defense mechanism for veginal infection. Don't hold urging. Take more water and make out put more. Personal hygienic is very important. Cleaning with warm water and antibiotic solution may help.

Hi lybrate-user! HIV spreads only through sex or blood transfusion and not through drinking or eating, but still if you have doubt just wait for a week or so and take a blood test. Before that confirm if your friend has HIV or not. Precaution is better than cure. Moreover alcohol itself will kill the virus if the blood drop fell in the alcohol. To rule out your doubt you can take a test in a week or so. Better confirm with your friend if he has taken all the blood tests etc. Indirectly just to clear your doubt. Take care. Be relaxed.

Sexual Health - Male

Sexual Health - Male

Here's something men may not be willing to tell their women: Sometimes a man gets a sore penis and, for a while at least, may not feel in the mood for sex. That's not to say that the mood will necessarily last for a long time, or that he may not find himself eager to jump into bed with his partner despite his sore penis. Even when they know there may be some pain, many men will happily give in to the lure of sex - even if the soreness makes them regret it later. But since his long-term penis health affects his partner as much as it does him, women need to know a little about the sore penis.

It's a societal thing

The fact is, men can often have a sore penis - much more often than one might think. And it's the kind of thing they're more willing to talk about with other guys than with women. (Although, to be fair, much of the time that they tell their buds they have a sore penis, it's really just a way of bragging about the incredible sex they had last night.)

Still, many men feel that society pressures them to present an uber-macho façade where matters of the penis are concerned, especially with the women they take to bed. They feel an expectation that they can perform at the drop of a hat - and that they're supposed to want to perform 24/7. But even the horniest of men are still only human and can fall prey to any number of soreness-inducing situations, such as:

- Overdoing it. Probably the most common reason a guy complains of a sore penis is because he's been having too much sex (either with a partner or with his hand - or both). Remember that penis skin is very sensitive and filled with nerve endings - hence, the incredible pleasure a guy gets from sex. Too much activity can simply overwork the poor little fellow - a situation which a little rest usually can cure.

- Aggressive action. Sometimes, though, the problem isn't too much penile activity - it's too rough penile activity. Especially if it's activity in which there is insufficient lubrication. So a guy who thrusts at too furious a pace, or whose penis is stroked at a lightning-fast pace by a hand devoid of lubrication, is going to find himself with a raw, painful penis.

- Allergy. Sometimes the soreness comes not from activity on that sensitive penis skin but from an allergic reaction - to chemicals in soap, fragrances in the detergent that cleans his underwear, etc. It causes a rash or other reaction which in some cases makes the manhood a little too tender to touch.

- A crotch punch. Getting hit in the groin with a baseball or other hard object can cause soreness that may last for days. Understandably.

Be gentle

So if a guy does complain about a sore penis, it helps if his partner is understanding. And she should know that he is likely going to want to get back into action earlier than he probably should - in which case, his partner can help by going slowly and helping him to ease back into things rather than jumping in at full throttle.

Women whose men complain of a sore penis should also encourage them to daily apply a first class penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Keeping the penis healthy means it will recover from whatever causes the soreness more quickly. The best crèmes can also help reduce the soreness. For example, one with both a high-end emollient (like Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) can "double team" affected penis skin, re-moisturize, and help alleviate soreness. By the same token, if aggressively rough handling has de-sensitized the penis, a crème with a neuroprotective ingredient like L carnitine can help restore minor loss of sensation.

Your problem of early discharge is known as Premature Ejaculation. Premature Ejaculation is the most common sexual problem experienced by man. There are certain techniques, which can help you to stay longer. Kegel exercise is one of the very popular and effective techniques to control premature ejaculation. These are the exercises of pubococcygeus muscles (PC) muscles. A man can do these exercises anytime and anywhere and no one will even know about it. To identify the muscles of your pelvic floor stop your flow of urine next time you go to urinal. Contract the muscles tightly holding for 10 seconds i.e. stop urinating in between. Do this thrice a day repeating 10 times. The PC muscles control the urine and semen and firmness of your organ during erection, so keeping them strong will increase ejaculatory control. Even while masturbating or doing intercourse you can practice stop and start i.e. rub for few thrust then stop for a minute and start rubbing again. Just relax on this; it should go away with some time.
