I have a headache and also a high blood pressure so suggest me a best advice to clear this problems.
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.

Stress - A Silent Initiator Of Piles!

Stress - A Silent Initiator Of Piles!

Stress affects the entire body functioning and leaves a negative effect in its wake. If you are prone to piles (hereditary) and are stressed out, watch out as it can only accelerate the occurrence of piles or haemorrhoids. It is a bunch of blood vessels in and around the anal region. These can get irritated due to constipation and excessive strain during bowel movement. The result is pain and bleeding. These could be internal or external, depending on whether it is protruding to the internal or external environment.

If you are wondering about the correlation between the two, read on:

  1. Some of the bowel disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and peptic ulcer are related to stress
  2. Stress leads to more consumption of junk and feel good foods, which all lead to constipation and haemorrhoids. The extra pressure during training directly leads to pressure on the anal region and haemorrhoid formation
  3. Stress prevents people from exercising and promotes prolonged sitting, which again leads to haemorrhoids
  4. Stress also leads to increased blood pressure, which can aggravate piles
  5. It has been observed that the severity of piles is more when the person is stressed than in normal period
  6. Alcohol again is consumed more during stress, and this can lead to dehydration, which in turn worsens piles

Causes:

  1. Chronic constipation
  2. Smokers
  3. Genetic reasons
  4. Stress

Though they are initially painless, as they progress, they can lead to pain and bleeding.

Management:

Haemorrhoids can be managed through a multi-pronged approach. In genetically prone people, prevention through a fiber-rich diet is very useful and people who have developed it, treatment is required. Two techniques are widely used for treating piles.

  1. Kshar Sutra: This is an ancient Ayurvedic technique, wherein a linen thread is used to ligate the irritated and bleeding vessels to stop further bleeding. The linen thread is coated with herbs which have medicinal values (coagulating properties, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial). This is left in place for a while to ensure the piles is cured. It is a minimally invasive procedure but should only be done by experts. It might require multiple sessions too, in people who have severe haemorrhoids and/or recurrence.
  2. Infrared rays: With light rays being used for multiple medicinal uses, clotting and ligating blood vessels is one of them. In piles, a beam of infrared rays of a specific wavelength are directed at haemorrhoid. This coagulates the blood vessels, and as there is no further blood supply to haemorrhoid, further growth is arrested. There is a scar tissue left behind which ensures further bleeding does not happen. This is done only for internal hemorrhoid, and each hemorrhoid is treated separately.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Piles:

Often Nagakesara is recommended by Ayurvedic doctors, especially when this is associated with bleeding. One teaspoon-full powder of Nagakesara is given to the patients three times a day. Haritaki is a useful herb for both dry and bleeding piles. One teaspoon full powder of Haritaki is given to the patients two to three times a day.

Ayurvedic drug Abhayarishta is a widely recommended medicine for this condition. 30 ml of Abhayarishta is given to the patient twice daily after food with an equal amount of water. Kasiaditaila can be used externally, which helps in shrinking piles and cures itching in the anal region. It helps in relieving pain and checks bleeding.

Diet:

Avoid any fast food and spicy items. Take foods which are rich in fiber. Barley, wheat, old rice, goat’s milk, brinjal, etc. are recommended food for the patient. Take sufficient water. Little warm water is sometimes recommended.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Mr. lybrate-user, we have to rule out basic cause of fever, dolo 650 are you taking? It's OK for fever, U can take 6-7 hourly or as fever goes up. Steam inhalation is most important for cold. For further treatment I will need more information about your suffering. U can consult online via Lybrate audio video or text. Thank you.

Is it normal to bleed for 2 days for a virgin (who never masturbate) after getting aroused? She had her periods 15 days back and they are always regular since they started. Or it may be possible that she was wearing tight jeans for 2 days that caused some injury? Or as she suffered from cold so took medications, turmeric, ginger etc so it was menstruation due to heat in body.

It is because of hormonal changes or stress or weight gain or illness. As this has happened for the first time there is no need to worry. This is temporary and no treatment required.

for masterbation: You must understand that excess of everything is bad. Same is true with masturbition. Control masturbition. Dont do more than a once in a week otherwise it may cause some weakness. You may take cap. Shilajit & tab. Chandraprabha bhati. One tab. Each morning & evening & also take dhatu paushtik churan one spoon morning & evening. All 3 with hot milk for 3-4 months.
