Doctor I am a chain smoker and I wanna know foods which will help my lungs to counter smoke effect. As I am trying to quit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is no foods specific to helping you counter the tobacco smoke effect on your lungs. You may however take the following measures to improving your lungs and as well as quitting smoking: When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well may be a little less. Your desire to smoke less is most welcome but it is not enough. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Stop eating rice avoid exposure to cold. Cold air can increase mucus secretion in hyperresponsive persons. Can go for spirometry to r/o asthma.

I had anal fissure, it used to pain during excretion but I had been using pilex creme on prescription from doctor. It's probably has been fixed. But now I've got a lot of itching in and around the anus, more in the perineal raphe area. It's also red. It becomes difficult to bend sometimes. What is it? Can you please suggest some home remedies or precautions. I don't wanna undergo anymore surgeries. I had pilonidal sinus surgery in May this year.

MS
General Surgeon, Panipat
As you have mentioned that you got surgery for pilonidal sinus this shows that you have more hair then normal. I simply suggest you to keep cleanliness of area by washing with soap and water and apply some moisturiser or home remedies coconut oil. Another suggestion is to keep your stool soft by taking three full meals which has lot of veg. Fruits and plenty of water and if needed add stool softener to it. i hope you will improve.

Hi Sir, I am suffering from MDR tb in my lung since 4 year please advice can I come to you for treatment I am taking allopathy medicine at this time.

MBBS, DNB (Respiratory Diseases)
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user, MDR treatment is possible and with proper medication it can be cured. It is a 2 year long battle but if you are ready to fight, you can win. I am too far away from your place but I will advice you that if you can't get good treatment locally then approach doctors in New Delhi. The government TB program is robust now, you can approach them. I wish you all the luck in your battle against TB.

Out of the two nose holes, one of the holes always stays closed and the other open. The blocked side keeps changing. I have no idea of what it is. After using one spray of otrivin it gets completely open for around 10 hours.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you asked about your problems related to sinusitis for two years and want to go for operation. For your kind information I would like to suggest you it will go without operations and many of my patients got rid of it without operation. It is three months regular treatment course and you will get rid of it. But you have to come first time for your pulse diagnosis with me at my noida clinic. I will provide all procedures and technical support to do at your home for complete cure.

I am suffering from tonsils and they pain really bad, my age is 19 and I'm drinking warm water but it can't help. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infection. Tonsillitis is common, especially in children. The condition can occur occasionally or recur frequently. Under normal circumstances, as viruses and bacteria enter the body through the nose and mouth, they are filtered in the tonsils. Within the tonsils, white blood cells of the immune system destroy the viruses or bacteria by producing inflammation which also lead to fever. The infection may also be present in the throat and surrounding areas, causing inflammation of the pharynx. Medication: With the help of homoeopathic medication, the surgery can be avoided! Take Schwabe’s Alpha-Tons/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Warm salt water gargle is recommended. Cover your throat with a stole.
