Dear Lybrateuser, -Your problem could be due to sedentary habit or muscular or bony problem -if you exercise vigourously, then take rest for few days, start exercising slowly warm up for 5-10 min, also lift weights gradually by increasing after a week or ten days, cool down after exercise -check your bp before exercising, if not much relief then consult a doctor.

You probably have gerd, an esophageal disorder. You need to eat less, avoid spicy food, tea coffee and alcohol and eat at regular time. See a good doctor to get medicines. They certainly will help you.

Hi, I did my Health Checkup. My CRP is 8.3 mg/L, HOMOCYSTEINE is 48.36µmol/L, TRIGLYCERIDES is 320 mg/dl, VLDL CHOLESTEROL is 64.06 mg/dl, NON-HDL CHOLESTEROL is 167.72 mg/dl. Hence my cholesterol levels are high. My 25-OH VITAMIN D is 6.51 ng/ml, hence vitamin D level are low. Can you suggest me a good vegetarian diet which will help me reduce cholesterol and increase vitamin-d in my body.

General Physician,
Alternative Therapies Lower BP
A group of experts has reviewed all the existing studies and concluded that indeed there are alternative treatments for lowering blood pressure, with aerobic exercise leading the pack as far as strong evidence goes.
Other alternative treatments ? namely isometric handgrip and dynamic resistance exercises and guided breathing ?? also got high grades when it came to reducing high blood pressure in some patients, according to a scientific statement from the American Heart Association published online in the journal Hypertension.
"The evidence is not as strong for transcendental meditation and acupuncture, but they may help as well," said co?senior author Sanjay Rajagopalan, MD, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Ohio State University School of Medicine in Columbus.
For the report, an expert panel headed by the University of Michigan?s Robert D. Brook, MD, reviewed 1,000 studies published from 2006 to 2011. They divided the studies into three major classes of alternative treatments: behavioral therapies, noninvasive procedures and devices, and exercise. The panel did not review dietary and herbal treatments. Based on the level of evidence, they gave each an "A," "B," or "C" recommendation ?? with "A" being the highest ?? for implementation into clinical practice.
The panel found:
Exercise?based regimens did the best overall, with dynamic aerobic exercises getting an "A" class of recommendation, with a level of evidence of I, the highest possible.
Dynamic resistance exercises got a "B" and isometric handgrip exercises got a "C" grade, with levels of evidence of IIA and IIB, respectively.
Still, 4 weeks of isometric hand grip exercises resulted in some of the most impressive improvements in several studies ?? a 10% drop in systolic and diastolic BP. However, isometric exercise should be avoided among people with severely uncontrolled hypertension (180/110 mm Hg or higher).
In Noninvasive procedures or devices, device?guided breathing got a "B" with a level of evidence of II. Device?guided slow breathing proved most effective in lowering blood pressure when performed for 15?minute sessions three to four times a week.
Acupuncture also got a "B," but its level of evidence was III, meaning no benefit.
Among behavioral techniques, transcendental meditation and biofeedback both received "B" grades, with IIBs for levels of evidence. Yoga got a C, with level of evidence of III, or no benefit, as did other meditation techniques.
The alternative approaches that work reduce systolic blood pressure by only 2 to 10 mm Hg; whereas standard doses of a blood pressure?lowering drug reduce systolic blood pressure by about 10 to 15 mm Hg.
Alternative approaches are best for patients with blood pressure levels over 120/80 mm Hg who can?t tolerate or don?t respond well to standard medications.

Please encourage your mother to consume cool (not cold) sweetish buttermilk and alkaline foods like Kohala (ash gourde), cucumber, cold milk. She should not eat spicy or chilie and oil rich foods. She can take immunity enhancing tonics like Reimmugen Colostrum capsules that will help her ulcers to heal and also help deal with allergy discomforts. Regards.

General Physician, Delhi
May I know your height sir to evaluate your bmi so that I can understand that if you're obese or not. If prolomet alone is not helpful to you as your bp is high you should use other medications also to prevent further and organ damage I suggest you should undergo urine albumin a lipid profile and fundus or retinal changes. Mind you they will be very helpful if you will not take proper medications your problem will persist.

Hii doctor my dad aged 59 is having bloating problem on right of the chest from almost 2 years. Last year we went to gastro neurologist he did colonoscopy nd sigmoidoscopy he concluded saying that he had gas trouble everything is fine. After then again he used to get bloating rarely, from past week he is getting bloating along with spasm or cramp (muscle contraction) on right side of chest for sometime and only having relief when having soda I don't know the exact term for that muscle contraction but he don't have any pain but only contraction sensation from last week this is the second time to get these contractions is it life threatening or any indication of cardiac arrest. Or is it because of seasonal change (winter in India) or due to gas please clarify.

Since his problem was confined to upper abdomen and chest, he should have undergone gastroscopy rather than colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy which deal with the bowels and lower abdomen. He must be suffering from gastritis and esophagitis-inflammation of stomach and lower part of esophagus as a result of acidity (acid peptic disease). It is also advisable to get a sonography of abdomen done to rule out gall stones which can causes similar symptoms. As for heart problem, get his ECG done as it is possible any other problem may be co-existing and has to be ruled out.

Increased cholesterol has to be addressed constitutionally. Take cholestrinum 6x 2 pills morning; It is better to meet a homeopathic doctor and take constitutional treatment. Take one teaspoon of flax seeds daily.

No it need not be typical heart attack means myocardial infarction. But since you have this precordial pain of chest bit is better to consult a medical specialist to exclude any abnormalities in the functioning of heart including blood pressure and blood sugar level.
