I am having hemorrhoids for past 1yr and I'm using smuths ointment. But the problem is that is not healing properly. When I eat chicken or paratha the blood starts to come from my rectum. What will I do.

Avoid straining. Eat plenty of fibers along with non veg you take. Constipation increases straining forces which cause bleeding. Fibers in diet like spinach and other leafy vegetables, carrots, cucumber, fruits like oranges and sweet lemon make the stools softer and less need for apllying force while passing motion. Local ointments are used if fissure is present and causes pain.

Alcohol Athletes: Can it affect fitness Performance?

Alcohol Athletes: Can it affect fitness Performance?

A lot of people believe in hitting the gym during the day and then a bar at night. One feels there's no harm in drinking a little amount of alcohol now and then. Don't drink and drive isn't only for behind the wheels, it's also on the field (and the gym).

First, let's give you a list of how alcohol can affect your body, and then we can get down to details! keep in mind these effects are within 48 hours of alcohol consumption, that too just after 2-3 standard drinks.

Decrease strength
Impair hand-eye coordination
Increase fatigue (by impacting liver function)
Mineral and vitamin depletion
Disturbed sleep
Impact cellular repair (since protein is affected negatively)
Dehydration thus affecting the kidneys
Loss of endurance
Unwanted weight gain

Do you really need me to go on alcohol isn't something that recommended for most people; for athlete's it just makes matters worse. While you're training or competing, it's best to stay away from alcohol! though, the best solution is to give it up completely to live a healthy lifestyle. Now let's get down to some technical details of how it impacts your organs (just so you don't think I'm talking in air.)

So first things first. Alcohol cannot be stored as energy. This means all the alcohol in your body is converted into fat hence the term beer belly.
    
Alcohol's effect on the liver can cause a problem in the production of oxygen which then interferes with the production of atp ie a direct source of energy for the muscles.
    
Sadly drinking alcohol before your workout hinders the circulation of glucose which is essential for energy. It has also been scientifically proven that alcohol diminishes protein synthesis which in turn stops muscle growth by preventing the repair of damaged muscles.
    
Another thing alcohol does is increase the urge to urinate which leads to loss of electrolytes. No no, I'm not done yet. I've got so much more fun facts related to alcohol.

Since alcohol is a toxin it disrupts the normal cell function.
    
Alcohol also inhibits the absorption of essential minerals like zinc, folic acid, vitamin b12 etc which are needed for metabolism and new cell growth (muscle cell included). 
    
The consumption of alcohol provides only empty calories which in turn displace valuable nutrients. That's just a loss of essentials and an increase of fat!
    
Do note, heavy drinking for a night can negatively affect the brain and bodily activities for 3 whole days whereas 2 nights of consecutive heavy drinking leave an impact for 5 days! evidently dehydration, fatigue, and headaches  commonly known as hangovers really don't mix well with the physical demands of our body.
    
Alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle which in turn leads a reduction in the ability to learn and retain new information. This could range from new skills to studying games or even applying strategies in a game.
    
Excessive alcohol can prevent the secretion of human growth hormone which is essential for muscle growth as well as recovery. For an athlete, that's bad. Bad
    

It's always better to prioritize a good day's workout over a night of heavy drinking. At least the workout leaves you worn out and exhausted craving for more! alcohol just leaves you with a bad hangover which leads to false swears of never drinking again.

Eat clean, drink healthy and stay fit!

Acid problem occurs in my body.
There is no short cut to have a healthy body. First of all check your blood parameters like cbc. Esr. Tsh. Lft. Hiv.(elisa) fasting blood sugar. Stool routine and chest x-ray (pa) etc. Avoid eating spicy food. Eat at regular intervals. Stop smoking or chewing tobacco if you have such habits and don't consume too many cups of tea / coffee etc. Regular aerobic and exercises with light weight will build up your stamina and muscles. It will be a while before you start seeing the positive changes in you. You can take some standard antacid gel like aludrpx. Gelusil 3 tsp thrice daily. Once the reports are ready. Contact me through lybrate for private consultation. I shall be able to advice you further.

Consult a surgeon for gall bladder stone and visit a cardiologist for hypertension. Weight gain will happen however target BMI should be less than 25. Loss of libido is unlikely to be due to any of these conditions.

Want Solution For IBS

B.A.M.S, Diploma in Nutrition and Health Education (DNHE, PG Diploma in Hospital Managment
Ayurveda, Delhi
Want Solution For IBS

Doctor, whenever I eat my meals, i’m getting the urge to defecate, whenever I finish breakfast, I get the urge, my stools are never solid etc.”- these kinds of patient’s presentations are quite common in ibs. This is a chronic, not easy to treat and frustration inducing disease.

Common symptoms of IBS-

  • Abdominal pain and discomfort.
  • Abdominal contraction increases after eating.
  • Abdominal cramps with bloating.
  • Feeling of unclear bowel.
  • Chronic diarrhea, constipation or a combination of both.
  • Flatulence.

Ayurveda explains ibs as grahani signs and symptoms are based on dosha dominance i.e. Vataj, pittaj, kaphaj grahani.

Line of treatment in ibs-

The medicines should have following qualities: deepana – carminative property, pachana – digestive, sangrahi – intestinal restorative, which increases absorption capacity of intestines laghu – lightness in the body

Home remedies for grahani (ibs)-

1. Flaxseed

Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber required for the swift and comprehensive passage of waste products. Plus, flaxseed is a good supplier of omega-3 essential fatty acids that are known to support the immune and digestive systems. Both constipation and diarrhea can be treated with flaxseed.

Add one teaspoon of flaxseed to one cup of boiling water. Steep for five to 10 minutes and then drink this herbal tea before going to bed. Drink daily to keep your stomach clean and free from gas.

2. Peppermint

Peppermint contains menthol oil, which has an antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of the digestive tract. This helps relieve bloating, gas pain and intestinal spasms. Plus, peppermint can help food pass through the stomach easily.

Add two or three drops of peppermint oil to one-fourth cup of warm water. Drink it twice a day. Continue until there is improvement in your condition.

Note: If taken in excess amounts, peppermint may cause nausea, heart problems and nervous system disorders.

3. Fennel seeds

Fennel seeds can relieve the intestinal spasms and bloating commonly associated with ibs. Plus, fennel seeds play a key role in eliminating fats from the digestive system, thus inhibiting the over-production of mucus in the intestine that contributes to ibs.

You can take one-half teaspoon of dry roasted fennel seeds powder twice daily with warm water.

4. Ginger

Ginger can reduce gas and bloating, hence it is often recommended for treating ibs. Also, ginger can reduce inflammation in the intestines and relax the intestinal muscles.

Grate a small piece of ginger and add one teaspoon of honey to it. Eat this mixture before having your lunch and dinner to get rid of diarrhea as well as improve your digestive process.

Note: Those suffering from high blood pressure should not use ginger remedies

5. Carrot

Carrots are a good source of pectin that can help prevent ibs symptoms as well as treat diarrhea and constipation.

Blend soft, cooked carrots in a blender with a little water to make puree. Add a little salt and eat one-half cup of carrot puree several times a day.

Note: Avoid eating raw carrots if it causes stomach pain.

Recommended diet and lifestyle in grahani (ibs)-

  • Regular intake of buttermilk
  • Fibrous diet
  • Cumin seeds
  • Pomegranate
  • Warm water
  • Easy-to-digest foods
  • Moderate exercise
  • Proper sleep

Lifestyle adjustments such as – fixed timt table of meals, sleeping and waking up at regular intervals, moderate exercise, yoga, stress management techniques are very useful.

Mental aspects to ibs-

Usually ibs is related with mental aspects. A patient with ibs usually suffers from anxiety or depression. In such a case, along with efforts to restore digestive health with the above said remedies, treatment to depression /anxiety should also be given. Hence treatments like shirodhara treatment (pouring medicated liquid over forehead in a stream), regular pranayama, meditation is very useful.

Some ayurvedic medicines useful in ibs-

Ayurvedic preparations like takrarishta, sanjivani vati, shankh vati, kutaj parpati, grahani kapat ras, pachamrut parpati, belagyl, kutajarishta etc. Are useful in grahani. You must consult your doctor before taking any medications.
