Hi, My weight is 60 kg and height is 153 cm. I had c-section two months ago. How much should I reduce? I breast feed my baby. Suggest some ideas to reduce weight.

Hello, As i can see you have not put on much in your pregnancy, but do take care that you don't put on weight during lactating period. It is a common notion that you need to eat for two, specially from the mothers, so i would like to suggest you take in 500 calories more, which you will get from eating 2 more chapatis, 1 catorie more of rice and from 1 serving of vegetables and 2 serving of fruits. Also you will take into consideration the ghee and oil and all the sweets. Have small meals rather that three large meals and also have lote of water. Since you have had a C-section, dont jump in strenious exercises without consultation with your Gyneac. Do come for consultation for details diet chart

Cook a handful of rice in a half a lit of water in an open pan. When rice is ready don’t throw the residue water drink reason this water when it remains that much hot that u can consume. Drink it on adding 1 tsp of sugar. This relieves your leucorrhoea that within a week. This is one of the most common home remedies for leucorrhoea..take pranacharya leucorest syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day...and pranacharya leucona capsule 1-1 twice a day

Stay healthy in monsoon season

Stay healthy in monsoon season
Stay healthy in monsoon season

Never eat if you are not feeling hungry (exceptions in case of health/mind concerns), this is a solid cardinal mantra in monsoons. Doing so results in indigestion problems and illness. So, here are some specific guidelines regarding what to eat and what not to eat during rains.

Nutritional tips in monsoon:

The damp and filthy conditions in monsoon plays a host for many disease causing germs, which cause some serious health attacks like dengue, malaria, conjunctivitis, typhoid, viral fever, pneumonia, gastro intestinal disturbances, diarrhea and dysentery. If your immune system is weak you are supposed to catch these diseases instantly. To maintain healthy diet and protect you from such ill causes during the rainy season these countermeasures have to be taken.

-eat fruits as they help you restore energy. Apples, mangoes, pomegranates, and pears are best suggestible.
-avoid watermelon and muskmelons and also goosing on too many mangoes may cause pimples.
-have medium to low salt food and avoid heavy salty food as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
-eating watery foods like lassi, watermelon, rice, muskmelon creates swelling in the body. So, better opt for foods which are drying in nature like corn, gram flour, chick pea etc.
-foods such as brown rice, oats, and barley are the best foods one could have in this monsoon.
-body's immunity can be increased by adding a dash of garlic to the soups, sir fries and curries you intake. Opt for yogurt, curd and almonds in your diet instead of milk.
-drink only boiled and purified water to protect yourself from harmful germs and drinking plenty of water keeps your body hydrated.
-vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes, cluster beans, ladies finger, kidney beans, pigeon pea, and sprouted grains must be avoided.
-eat steamed salads instead of raw vegetables as they contain active bacteria and virus that cause bacterial and viral infections.
-have fresh radish juice to fight cold and cough. To reduce mucous formations add pipli and rock salt to warm water. This reduces the natural monsoon ailments. Better eat seasonal fruits as non- seasonal fruits get infested with worms during the monsoons. Pomegranates, lychees, apples, bananas are among the recommended.
-avoid eating fried items, pre-cut fruits and juices from road side vendors and stick to high quality and hygiene.
-always wash vegetables well and keep them clean especially if they are taken raw.

Have a safe & joyful monsoon

I have daughter of 18 months. My tsh level was high in pregnancy. And advised thyroxine sodium 75 mcg, but I did not take medicine after delivery. And not repeated test after delivery. Is it important to check thyroid level now.

normally after delivery there is no need to take thyroxine tablets because the levels of thyroid comes back to normal state & it can pass on to baby through milk of mother. get tested for total thyroid profile & if TSH is on borderline & thyroid is low, do not take thyroxine because low thyroid on borderline gets corrected by modifications in lifestyle- eating right, exercise & low stress.

I am having irregular period. Infact now its second month over. Please suggest a solution I am 39 years old.
Irregular cycles are common during your age because of decline in estrogen hormone. It may become scanty and can come every 2-3 months also. If you have never been screened with pap test or ultrasound is not done, then it is an opportunity for you to get it tested now.

Hello iron supplements are available in the drug stores, which can be taken as per choice and requirement. Your other problem appears to be due to some infection. Take plenty of water and liquids. Also get your investigations done for urine and vaginal discharge.

She never had periods from 2-3 months

BHMS
Homeopath,
She never had periods from 2-3 months
Hello, Kindly explain me - does she has much bleeding during the menses? Since how long she has been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition does she has? Is she having active sexual life? Got the pregnancy test or any other investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to this type of irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your delayed menses – Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.
Yes, most of the over weight women faces irregular menses. The reason being, more weight causes increased secretion of s. Testosterone in the body which causes irregular menses. Losing a considerable amount of weight can cause the period to become scanty, heavy, shorter or longer than normal. It may also cause a woman to suffer from an imbalance in hormones, which can directly cause the irregularity. This is a normal color change. It happens when the blood is older and not being expelled from the body quickly.

Massage breast from below upwards and from side inwards using some coconut oil. Exercising the muscles beneath your breasts will make them appear more rounded, it can be done by push-ups done daily for few times increasing gradually. Wearing a well fitting bra may help
