Recently I notice that on my forehead there is a link type formation. On pressing or combing I do don't feel any type of pain. Some days it is cytes. On showing a local physician, he says it can be removed after a operation. Can you please suggest actually what is this lump emerged and is slowing blugeing? remedy please.

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello lybrate-user, your question is not very clear but what I gather from it is that you are having a lump on your forehead which is diagnosed by the local doctor as" cyst" cyst is totally operable and you can get rid of it in a matter of half an hour. It is a minor operation and won't even require a longer duration of admission. If it is causing a lot of pain or discomfort, you can get operated.

What foods increase vitamin D? The doc says that I have weak bones. I am a vegetarian.

What foods increase vitamin D? The doc says that I have weak bones. I am a vegetarian.
Foods with a higher amount of vitamin D include fish, liver, and egg yolk. Excellent sources of vitamin D are foods and beverages that have vitamin D added to them. Cow milk always has added vitamin D. Orange juice, margarine, and soy beverage usually have it added.

How Badly Sleeping Postures Can Affect Your Spine and Ways to Undo It

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, Ozone Therapy
Orthopedist, Ghaziabad
How Badly Sleeping Postures Can Affect Your Spine and Ways to Undo It

Sleep is a natural part of the daily biological functions and we spend some time of the 24 hours sleeping.

Sleep cycles are different for different persons and while 5 to 6 hours of sleep may be enough for some people, others may need up to 8 hours of sleep to feel refreshed. How you sleep is as important as the duration. This is one area which is often neglected by people.

Why sleeping positions are important?

Sleeping positions are very important as you stay in a single position for hours at a time every day, and if these habits are bad, they can contribute to spinal problems. Thus, many of the spinal problems can also be alleviated by sleeping correctly.

Some of the bad sleeping positions that may adversely affect your spine are as follows.

  • On your stomach - This position is in overall a bad position as it curls up the spine, especially where the neck meets the spine and can cause spinal deformities over a long period of time. Certain adjustments to this position can lessen the effects, but it is important to try to change habits and sleep in a better position.
  • The fetal position - Although this is one of the more natural positions and most babies are crouched up in this form in the mother's womb; as a sleeping position, it has its disadvantages as well. The lower spine is especially put under a lot of stress when someone curls up in this position.
  • On your side - Although this is safer compared to the other two, sleeping on your sides straight would cause blood circulation issues and also put a lot of stress on the relevant organs, depending on the side you were sleeping on.

In all of the cases, slight adjustments to these positions will lessen the stress on the spine and also help you sleep better.

Some of the adjustments that you can make are:

1. Sleep with a pillow between your knees to align your hips and cause less strain on the spine.
2. If you don't have sleep apnea, put a pillow under your knees to raise them while lying on you back.
3. If you sleep on your back, try to consciously change your position to sleep on the side.
4. Try and actively change your posture throughout the day to ensure good sleeping position at night.

Do we really required cooked food for survival with the same vigour and enthu like all. I. E can we lead normal life eating uncooked food?

Do we really required cooked food for survival with the same vigour and enthu like all. I. E can we lead normal life ...
Dear sir, one needs to have a balance of cooked and raw foods for survival. Only raw food will not make up all your nutrient requirements, because some of them can be made available only after cooking. But raw food is also very important. That is why we stress on salads and fruits also for a healthy body. Some foods without cooking also may lead to certain infections of the stomach and may also cause too mush of bloating. And indigestion. So a wise balance needs to, be maintained.
