Apart from these, it is also used to treat early onset of puberty. It is administered through injection into a muscle or under the skin.

Hello- Taking synthetic testosterone shots and oral supplement apart from cost is also not safe, as it results in testicular shrinkage in almost 50 % cases. Its better to go herbal. Ayurvedic aphrodisiac herbs and some simple lifestyle and dietary changes can help boost your testosterone level naturally. Herbs like Malaysian ginseng (Eurycoma longifolia), and Puncturevine (Tribulus terrestris) are known to boost testosterone naturally and also to maintain its healthy level life long by correcting its production capacity in the body.

Hi lybrate-user. Yes you can feel some dizziness post delivery, primarily because of depletion of nutrients from your body. But to just take it as an absolute answer would be an over simplification. Dizziness or chakkar or vertigo can also occur because of vestibular (inner ear) disorder or cervical spondylosis. You need to go visit an ent specialist to clinch the diagnosis.

Medication regime which you are talking about is more likely indicative of treatment of psychotic depression having some mixed features. So in this medication needs to be continued long term. May be few years. All a psychiatrist can say is if you stop medication abruptly then subsequent episode is going to be more rapid and severe.

Few tips to Lose Weight

A very good evening to all of you. I’m Dr. Hardik Thakker, an M.D physician from Mumbai. Today I would be speaking on Five tips for losing weight.

So as you all know there is a trend for people who are overweight these days, and they want to lose weight. This can be for varied occasions, like for going for parties, or getting ready for their marriages, or just to achieve their health goals.

  • So the first and the foremost health tip would be once you get up in the morning one can have a glass of water with one lemon. This is one of the best ways to boost your metabolism, because as we know, lemon is a booster, it boosts your daily basic metabolic rate and helps you to lose more calories. This is to be taken in the morning on an empty stomach.
  • The second health tip would be to avoid any foods which are rich in sugars or pastries or sweets, and to prefer to have more of complex carbohydrates in every day diet.
  • The third health tip would be to have at least a jog or a cardio workout every day for thirty minutes. This is again to help you lose the calories and boost your metabolism. It’s only when you lose the calories that your fat depots go down.
  • The fourth tip would be to have enough of sleep because good sleep is very important for the body to rest, and to do justice to whatever workout you have done.
  • And the fifth tip is to have a weight training schedule at least five times in a week. This is to build muscles, so once you have more muscle tissue it is having a higher metabolic rate and it helps you to lose fast.

For more details on weight loss options and medication that can help you to achieve your goals, you can please get back to me on my website that is, and you can access my profile from there. Thank you very much.
