Tips for controlling acidity- *Diet –Avoid fried, spicy and sour foods. *Maintain food timings-neither stomach should be empty nor heavy, frequent small helpings may be ok.. *Prefer – whole grains, milk, curd, greens, fruits and such items which suit you. *Have timely and adequate sleep. *.Drinking lots of water is good .*Be relaxed and avoid tension *.Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps digestion and nutrients reaching the body *Increased blood circulation, in turn, takes away toxins from the system making you more active agile and fit.

The cholesterol levels are deranged. As first line, you need to attempt diet change and exercise, if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions, he may require treatment. Daily 40 mins of brisk walking for exercise. Quit smoking and drinking (if he does). Ask for a detailed dietary consult from a dietician. Get his blood sugar and TSH tested. Follow up with a General physician or cardiologist after 6 weeks with lipid profile report.

I am suffering from high BP so how I control it?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am suffering from high BP so how I control it?
Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Plenty of fluids orally. I suggest brisk walking for 40 mins, 5 days a week. Remain stress free as much as possible. Take your medicines regularly. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Egg Yolk and Cholesterol - Is There Really a Link?

Egg Yolk and Cholesterol - Is There Really a Link?
Egg yolk and cholesterol - is there a link?

Although egg is considered one of the most nutritious foods, people with high cholesterol avoid its consumption as they believe that eggs may increase cholesterol and risk heart diseases.

Is there a link between egg yolk and cholesterol?

Egg yolk is rich in dietary cholesterol. One large egg contains 185 milligrams of cholesterol. People with normal cholesterol levels require about 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol and people with high cholesterol need 200 milligrams of dietary cholesterol from food.

Dietary cholesterol has the minimum impact on blood cholesterol as compared to saturated and trans fats which contain bad cholesterol. Hence dietary cholesterol present in egg yolk has minimal or no effects on increasing your cholesterol levels.

First of all you have to remove the all fear from your mind, be optimistic and see positive aspect in each issue. Avoid loneliness, be with family and friends. Chant some mantra of your liking like aum, aum namo shivay or aum namo bhagvate vasudevay namah or gayatri mantra regularly when ever gets time, reading of ramraksha or selected chapters of durgasptashati or hanuman chalisa. Proper sleep, exercise like morning walk, yoga and regular simple veg diet is useful, once in a week fasting or consuming only fruits 1- sarsvatarishta 15 ml + ashvagandharista 10 ml twice daily with water after food 2-daily scalp massage with almond oil before sleep 3- brahmivati 250 mg 2 tablets twice

Dear lybrateuser, -The solution to your problem is that you stop drinking altogether, stop drinking at the point where your problem starts as this is a adverse reaction to the alcohol intake, it can become serious like dizziness, headache & collapse, so better would be to avoid intake.

There are different causes of chest pain. Cardiac chest pain or angina is squeezing type of heaviness which appears on working hard and goes away on resting. Gastritis is burning type of pain related to meals. There are other causes of chest pain like muscular pain also. It is best if you get yourself evaluated properly by a cardiologist. Some tests like treadmill test can help differentiate cardiac chest pain from noncardiac chest pain.

Dear lybrate-user, persistently high blood pressure in this range can be harmful to various organs of the body and must be controlled. However considering your age, one must find and treat, treatable causes of high bp. If none found, more powerful medicines to be given along with life style modification.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.
