Hi , you must get your tooth checked by dentist. In pregnancy, due to effect of hormones, gum becomes soft & spongy so becomes more prone to infections which ultimately leads to tooth damage. So regular brushing, flossing & dental check up is must. Strict no to home remedies. Inform your dentist about pregnancy so he can advise you" pregnancy safe" treatment.

Khus Khus - Health Benefits You Never Knew!

Khus Khus - Health Benefits You Never Knew!

There are many condiments used for flavouring in Indian cooking. We also have many ingredients that can bring us health benefits. Khus khus or poppy seeds are one of the staple Indian condiments that we use in pulses, curries and other vegetable preparations. This condiment is also known for its varied health benefits that many of us may not be aware of.

Read on to know more about the health benefits of poppy seeds.

  1. Constipation: Poppy seeds are known to drive away and prevent constipation. This condiment can also remove gas. These seeds keep your stomach feeling full for a much longer time. It can be added to your food so that you can avoid constipation and other problems like gas and indigestion. This is due to the fact that poppy seeds carry plenty of dietary fibres.
  2. Sleep problems: Khus khus is also a well known ingredient that can be taken with warm milk and sugar to help in curing sleep disorders like insomnia. This ingredient helps in inducing sleep and is known to be an excellent way in which one can cure sleeplessness. The milk with poppy seeds must be ingested at least an hour before you sleep.
  3. Respiratory problems: If you have been suffering from asthma and other respiratory issues for a very long time, then this might just be the cure for you. One can have poppy seeds as this ingredient acts like a decongestant of sorts and helps in keeping the airways and the throat tract clear. It reduces the amount of cough that one may be having, which helps in better management of the respiratory problem being faced.
  4. Radical attacks: Any radical attacks like a sudden spike in one’s cholesterol and blood pressure as well as cardiac arrest can also be prevented with the help of poppy seeds along with a good diet and exercise routine. Poppy seeds are a well-known source of antioxidants and one can have plenty of this in order to avoid coming down with any sudden and serious health issues.
  5. Kidney stones: With the help of poppy seeds and its antioxidants as well as dietary fibers, it is possible to routinely flush out all those toxins that can otherwise accumulate in your body. These toxins usually give rise to conditions like kidney stones and other related issues. Ingesting poppy seeds on a regular basis can go a long way in avoiding such issues.
  6. Pain killer: Whatever kind of pain we may be suffering from, and for whatever reason or condition, chewing on poppy seeds can actually help in giving substantial pain relief. It can relieve you of tooth aches as well as muscular and neurological pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Healthy Voice / Vocal Hygiene

Masters
Speech Therapist, Delhi
Healthy Voice / Vocal Hygiene

1. Increase fluid intake 4-8 ounces of water per day.
2. Avoid excessive throat clearing - try sipping water instead.
3. Get plenty of sleep. Fatigue can cause voice to sound hoarse.
4. Use plenty of breath support.
5. Do not speak in sentences that are too long. This causes you to vocalize with inadequate breath support at the end of your air stream.
6. Minimize caffeine, alcohol, menthol throat lozenges and dairy intake. These can dry out the vocal cords and/ or create thick mucous.
7. Avoid smoking. 
8. Avoid raising your voice above others in a loud environment, it can cause straining and vocal abuse.

I got fibroadenoma in both my breast kindly suggest any medicine for curable I do not want to have surgery already I had 3 years before surgery but I got again now is there any permanent solution pls suggest.

Fibro adenoma breast is a benign condition. If it is fibroadenoma, nothing needs to be done. Transformation from fibroadenoma to cancer is rare; regression or resolution is frequent, supporting conservative approaches to follow-up and management. Follow-up every 6 months is recommended with you doctor/surgeon. Thanks.

Hi! Doctor After delivery how much time can I use 1. Birth control pills or injection or loop which is suitable for me or plz zip explain side effects also R

Doctor of Medicine, F.C.P.S.(Mid. & Gynae)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
You can start using pills or lUCD after three months after delivery if there has been no problem during or after delivery. Birth control pills have to be taken regularly without fail. The low-dose pills have hardly any side effects such as break-through bleeding, mild headache, mild weight gain which usually disappear with time. Failure of contraception may occur. With IUCD and injections there may be spotting or bleeding, painful periods and excessive bleeding during menses. The IUCD may fall off. The side effects may become less as time passes. Regular check-ups to see that IUCD is in place are necessary. But overall side-effects are tolerable and benefits far outweigh the side-effects.

Hello lybrate-user as you asked about your problems related to your vaginitis, I would like to advise you to follow regular wash with warm saline water twice daily. You may use coconut oil over it and sprinkle haldi powders on effected areas twice daily. It will improve your skin patches.

It is important whether pregnancy test was positive before taking the tablets. If that was positive, a sonography should be done. If test was not done, you were most likely not pregnant at that time. You will then require tests for irregular periods.

I am 21 year old women, my breast became tight when in am imagine my sex experience please suggest me what should I do.
It is a natural phenomenon in the sexual response cycle. When sexually excited, the breasts become engorged, become firm and may develop slight rash like appearance. These are natural happenings. Nothing to worry.
