Studying at a stretch for 7 hours or more is ought to fatigue your mental ability. Try to break your study time in 2 to 3 parts with proper intervals of about 1 hour between them. Trying to whip a fatigued horse cannot give any more speed.

Ayurveda helps in cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy refers to a group of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle co-ordination. 

Symptoms:
Lack of muscle co-ordination when performing voluntary movements (ataxia)
Stiff or tight muscles and exaggerated reflexes (spasticity)
Walking with one foot or leg dragging
Walking on the toes, a crouched gait, or a'scissored' gait
Muscle tone that is either too stiff or too floppy

Causes:
Cerebral palsy is usually due to brain damage in the first few months or years of life, brain infections such as bacterial meningitis or viral encephalitis, or head injury.

Ayurveda treatment for cerebral palsy:

Ayurveda has shown very good results in patients of cerebral palsy. Though cerebral palsy may not be fully cured, ayurvedic treatment can definitely help to reduce disability and improve the functioning of the affected individual to a great extent. The ayurvedic treatment of cerebral palsy focuses on treating the presenting symptoms and attempting to reverse the brain damage.

Medicines which help in improving the functional capacity of the brain and may also help in regeneration of damaged brain cells are:

Brahmi (bacopa monnieri)
Mandukaparni (centella asiatica)
Shankhpushpi (convolvulus pluricaulis)
Jyotishmati (celastrus paniculatus)
Kushmand (benincasa hispida)
Ustukhuddus (lavandula stoechas)
Yashtimadhu (glycyrrhiza glabra)
Ashwagandha (withania somnifera)
Shatavari (asparagus racemosus)
Guduchi (tinospora cordifolia)
Vacha (acorus calamus)
Haritaki (terminalia chebula)
Abhrak bhasma
Suvarna bhasma
Suvarna prashan

Some of these medicines are also useful in preventing or reducing convulsions.

Medicines which helps in the formation of the muscles and tissues are:

Guduchi (tinospora cordifolia)
Amalaki (emblica officinalis)
Musta (cyperus rotundus)
Panch tikta ghrita
Panch tikta ghrita guggul
Brahmi ghrita
Pancha gavya ghrita

Medicines are used to improve nerve conduction and muscular co-ordination are:

Kaishor guggul
Yograj guggul
Vata gajankush ras
Mahavatvidhwans ras
Tapyadi loh ras
Vishtinduk vati

Panchkarma therapy:

Panchakarma therapies which are useful in this condition are:

Abhyangam: massage of the entire body with medicated oils like mahanarayan oil, maha-mash-oil and maha-saindhav-oil are very useful.
Pinda sweda
Shirobasti
Shirodhara
Basti

Yoga:

Yogic postures useful in cerebral palsy are as follows:

Dandasana
Trikonasana
Bharadvajasana
Tadasana
Uttanasana
Balasana
Supta padangusthasana
Adho mukha svanasana

All these therapies and medicines show miraculous effect on the patients suffering from cerebral palsy.

(p. S: as every human being is different according to ayurveda, all have different cures. So, kindly consult us or an ayurveda doctor before taking any herbal treatments.)

I am diabetic for the past 18+ years. What is the fasting sugar level allowed for me?

MBBS, MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Hello. Welcome to lybrate. Ideally your fasting blood sugar should be less then 126 mg/dl. The treatment is based on the blood sugar levels, your age, weight and associated complications of diabetes, if any. There are two ways of diabetes management: 1. Life style changes - includes diabetic diet, daily exercise, cholesterol and weight management. 2. Drug therapy - if blood sugars are so high that they can't be well controlled on dietary measures, the medicines are required. Medicines are again decided based on the blood sugar levels you should not play with these drugs as this can be harmful. Get them prescribed by a doctor only. They would start you with an assumed dosage and will modify your medicines based on your blood sugar values. I would advise you to get following investigations done: 1. Hba1c 2. Fasting lipid profile 3. Serum creatinine 4. Urine for micro albumin. 5. Ecg. Based on the reports you would be started on the treatment. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

To keep body healthy what should I do? What is symptoms of flu? And what is reason behind it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
To keep body healthy what should I do? What is symptoms of flu? And what is reason behind it?
To be healthy, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you do. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms: fever* or feeling feverish/chills. Cough. Sore throat. Runny or stuffy nose. Muscle or body aches. Headaches. Fatigue (tiredness) try to avoid close contact with sick people. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
