I am old case of Abdominal TB. Duly treated with ERH for 7 months, till May 2014. Reviewed by the Gastroentrologist in November 2014. But now I have similar kind of cough with reduced appetite. USG - Abdomen of November 2014 was normal. ESR and TSH levels are high for last two years. Not on any medication, now. Kindly advise.

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine

Thanks for your query. Raised TSH means you have hypothyroidism. Go for full thyroid profile. Get a chest X ray done to have an idea for lung TB and get sputum for AFB. IF it is negative then an antibiotic course will help you. Best wishes

Types And Treatment Of Tonsillitis!

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of the throat.

  2. Acute tonsillitis: This is a form of acute infection which usually doesn't recur but may set once or so. 

A virus or bacteria that causes common cold may result in tonsillitis. The most common cause of this disorder is the strep bacteria. School going children are especially vulnerable to this disorder because they are most prone to various infections.

  • Swallowing difficulties 
  • Sore throat 
  • Bad breath 
  • Fever and chills 
  • A headache, ear ache, and stomach ache 
  • May experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw 
  • Swollen tonsils with possible redness 
  • Change in voice when tonsil such enlarged - hot potato voice.
  • Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics in acute cases and in some resistant chronic cases, operation tonsillectomy is indicated . Surgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature and recurrence is more than 3 times per year or a child fails to thrive . 

This operation is very simple now a days with new technologies.

Bronchitis - Ways Ayurveda Can Help You Treat It!

Bronchitis - Ways Ayurveda Can Help You Treat It!

Ayurveda is effective because it treats the root of the problem in order to treat it. According to this ancient system of medicine, bronchitis, which is infection of the windpipe, is known as ‘kasa roga’. According to Ayurveda, bronchitis happens primarily due to impaired digestion. This is the reason why Ayurveda treats bronchitis through drugs that have the ability to treat both the lungs and the digestive system. Chronic bronchitis is also caused due to airborne allergens like cigarette smoke and pollution.

The main symptom of bronchitis is chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes or the windpipes that carry air to the lungs. This infection causes profuse secretion of phlegm. Other notable symptoms are chest pain, chronic cough, fever, poor digestion and loss of appetite, and shortness of breath. Children, senior citizens and those with an impaired immune system are extremely prone to bronchitis. If left untreated for long, bronchitis can manifest as tuberculosis. Another disease bronchitis can mutate into is bronchial asthma.

Ayurvedic treatment

  1. Haldi or turmeric, commonly used Ayurvedic spices in the world, is the most common home remedy for bronchitis. One can take a teaspoonful of haldi mixed in a glass of milk in the night for relief. Haldi is more effective if taken on an empty stomach.
  2. The juice of vasa is also an excellent remedy for bronchitis. One can take it twice or thrice daily.
  3. Ginger juice and honey mixed in a cup of warm water is also good for easy expectoration of phlegm.
  4. One can also mix equal quantities of dried ginger, black pepper and long pepper with honey and take a teaspoonful thrice every day.
  5. Tulsi or holy basil is a great cure for bronchitis. Water boiled with tulsi leaves brings instant relief to a sore throat. One can use this water for gargling too.
  6. In case of a congested throat ‘khadiradi vati’ gives effective relief, due to catechu that helps relieve congestion.

Ayurvedic medicines
Shringyadi churna, kaphaketu, kaphachintamani, sitopaladi churna, pravala pisthi, rasa sindur, talisadi churna, haridra khand and vasarishta are a few effective Ayurvedic medicines for bronchitis.

What else?

  1. Protection from cold is key. Cold water and winds should be avoided. Use warm water for bathing, wear warm clothes and avoid excess humidity, dust and allergic pollen. Heavy physical exercises should also be avoided.
  2. Stay away from cold foods like curd and sour substances, fruits like bananas and guavas, and from alcohol and tobacco.
  3. Also, one should eat foods that are easy to digest. Lots of leafy vegetables will give one the vitamins and mineral required to fight bronchitis.
  4. One can also opt for Ayurvedic therapies like Vamana and Virechana to treat bronchitis. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Bronchitis for such a long time are usually allergic bronchitis or asthma. You should take inhaler medicine if you have these diseases. Oral medicine (steroid) usually given by quack for treating any and every disease cause weight gain also as their side effects, so such type of drugs should be avoided or taken only after advice of a qualified allopathic medicine doctor.
