Tulsi - a **miracle** plant

Tulsi is regarded as an 'elixir of life' and believed to promote longevity. It is considered to be an adaptogen, balancing different processes in the body.

A. Benefits-:

1. It is considered as a tonic to retain youth and avoid aging. Vitamin c, vitamin a, phytonutrients and the essential oils in tulsi are excellent antioxidants and protect the body from nearly all the damages caused by the free radicals.

2. It is anti-carcinogenic and it found to be effective in healing nearly all types of cancer and tumors.

3. It reduces total cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Thus, it is useful for heart disease patients.

5. It can protect from radiation poisoning and also heals up damages caused by radiations. It acts as a vaccine against pox if consumed regularly.

6. It is used as a mouth wash. It is very good for maintaining dental health, counteracting bad breath and for massaging the gums. It is also useful in pyorrhea.

7. It also cures ulcer in the mouth. It is also known to help inhibit the growth of oral cancer caused by chewing tobacco etc.
8. It is an excellent antibiotic, germicidal, fungicidal and disinfectant and very efficiently protects our body from nearly all sorts of bacterial, viral and fungal infections.

9. Consumption of tulsi leaves decoction helps prevent and heal fever.

10. It has a hypoglycemic effect, so it reduces blood glucose levels. Thus, it is useful for diabetics.

11. It helps in building up stamina, hence used to prepare herbal tea.

12. Its regular consumption can protect eyes from all the damages done by the free radicals, such as cataract, macular degeneration, glaucoma, vision defects, opthalmia etc. Due to its high antioxidant properties.

13. Recent studies on tulsi proved to be a useful medication for people living with human immunodeficiency virus (hiv), and acquired immune deficiency virus (aids).

14. Tulsi, being a detoxifier and mild diuretic in nature, can help reduce uric acid level (main culprit as far as kidney stones are concerned) concentration in the blood as well as helps cleaning of the kidneys through urination.

15. Tulsi oil application on the body keeps mosquitoes and other insects away.

How can I control masturbate .weekly 4 times I will .and I will get mood anytime.
You are doing excessive masturbation. You want to control it. I advice you to take vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily to detoxify body. Do meditation for mental strength to increase your focus and willpower to quit masturbation. Always remember, thinking about sex is anti sex and harmful for your future married life. You can do masturbation two times a week, more than this is harmful. Do masturbation when there is need for it, don't make it your addiction.

Male Sex Toys Are Fun But Require Appropriate Caution!

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Male Sex Toys Are Fun But Require Appropriate Caution!

Sex is certainly one of the most enjoyable activities available to humankind, and it's no surprise that many people add to that enjoyment through the use of sex toys. Both men and women can use sex toys to add a new level to either their partner sex or their masturbatory experiences. But whatever the use, men need to take appropriate caution when using sex toys in order to make sure there is no damage to their penis health.

Male sex toys

While there is a wide range of sex toys for men, the majority of them fall into a few basic categories: cock rings, vibrators, anal devices/prostate massagers and imitation vaginas. Any one of these can increase one's sexual sensations when used safely.

However, there are potential drawbacks that men should be aware of so they can exercise appropriate caution when utilizing one of these devices.

Cock rings

One of the most popular sex toys for men, cock rings are typically a metal or plastic ring or leather strap that fits very snugly around the base of the penis (or around the base of the penis and balls). They are intentionally tight, as the tightness "incarcerates" the penis, with the goal of trapping blood and creating or maintaining a very firm and stiff erection. While some men use these as treatment for erectile dysfunction, many simply use them for the pleasurable sensations associated with them.

Many men use DIY cock rings, simply wrapping a string around the penis and tying it tightly.

When using a cock ring, men should be sure it does not fit TOO tightly. If it causes pain or discomfort, it shouldn't be worn. It's also essential that a ring be worn for only a limited amount of time; most manufacturers suggest 30 minutes. Use of a ring for too long a period of time can lead to penile strangulation, a medical issue which can be quite serious and require a doctor's attention.

Vibrators

Many cock rings have vibrating functions built into them, but many men also make use of a phallic- or other-shaped handheld vibrator to provide extra stimulation to the penis. While this is most frequently used during masturbation, it can also be employed by a partner during couples sex to great effect.

When using a vibrator on the penis, it is important that a man doesn't use it for too long a period of time (or at too intense a setting) on any one section of the penis. The pulses of a vibrator tend to be gentle when compared to the roughness of some masturbation sessions, but if used too aggressively it can lead to a raw or sore penis.

Anal devices

More and more men are feeling free to explore their anus and prostate and how these positively affect their sexual experiences. This is a positive development; however, caution is needed to ensure that a man doesn't get too rough during his explorations. Soreness in this area can negatively impede penile action.

Imitation vaginas

One of the most popular masturbation toys, most of these devices are safe if used according to instructions. The most common issues to watch out for are using without sufficient lubrication and simply overuse.

Used with a modicum of caution, male sex toys enrich a guy's sex life. Since most of the side effects from improper use involve rawness and soreness, regularly applying a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically tested and proven mild and safe for skin) is an important step. Penis skin that has been handled too roughly responds well to a crème that contains both a high end emollient (shea butter is an excellent one) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). That rough handling may also damage sensitive penile nerve endings, leading to a loss of sensation; a crème which includes neuroprotective acetyl L carnitine should help to restore loss of sensitivity due to rough handling.

My mom is suffering from diabetes from last 5 years. Her age is 44. She don't like to consume drug, she do not follow...
Mr. Lybrate-user, if she has confirmed diabetes then there is no way of controlling that without any drugs either oral or insulin injections. Looking at her height and weight she has a bmi of 30.07 kgs/m2, suggesting she has grade 1 obesity. This itself can upset her blood glucose levels. If she brings her weight down to 60 kg, then her sugar levels can come down considerably, still medications are required. If refuses to take medicines, then long term serious side effects of diabetes will affect her early. Uncontrolled high blood sugar causes damage to eyes - retina leading to blindness, damage to kidney causing kidney failure, damage to small and large blood vessels and nerves leading to ulcers on foot and loss of limbs, affects blood supply to heart causing heart attacks, so it her choice whether she wants to live a normal healthy life by taking proper medicines or invite all problems mentioned above. You may talk to her. Thanks for the question.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Don't get confused. Sperm colour, quantity and thickness changes according to physical condition and sexual intercourse / masturbation timing and related mental and physical conditions. Therefore, don't think too much about the thickness or quantity of sperm. If you want to know the quality of sperm, get your sperm checked for that. For Healthy Sperm, Eat More Vitamins.(Deficiencies in vitamin A have been linked to sluggish sperm and lowered fertility) Minerals.(Inadequate levels of zinc can cause lowered sperm counts), Fatty acids, Folic acid, Lycopen, and Drink a lot of Water. Include sprouts in your daily diet to improve sperm count and quality. Take care.
