How to increase metabolism. please suggest?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath,
1. EAT ENOUGH: You need to cut calories to lose weight. But going too low delivers a double whammy to your metabolism. When you eat less than you need for basic biological function (about 1,200 calories for most women), your body throws the brakes on your metabolism. It also begins to break down precious, calorie-burning muscle tissue for energy, says Dan Benardot. "Eat just enough so you're not hungry?a 150-calorie snack midmorning and midafternoon between three meals (about 430 calories each) will keep your metabolism humming." 2. REV UP IN THE MORNING: Eating breakfast jump-starts metabolism and keeps energy high all day. It's no accident that women who skip this meal are 4 1/2 times as likely to be obese. If nothing else, grab a yogurt. Or try oatmeal made with fat-free milk and topped with nuts for an essential protein boost. (For more breakfast ideas, see Power Breakfasts For Energy.) 3. DRINK COFFEE OR TEA: Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant, so your daily java jolts can rev your metabolism 5 to 8%?about 98 to 174 calories a day. A cup of brewed tea can raise your metabolism by 12%, according to one Japanese study. Researchers believe the antioxidant catechins in tea provide the boost. 4. FIGHT FAT WITH FIBER: Research shows that some fiber can rev your fat burn by as much as 30%. Studies find that women who eat the most fiber in foods gain the least weight over time. Aim for about 25 g a day?the amount in about three servings each of fruits and vegetables. (Which foods are packed with fiber? Find out with our Fiber Finder.) 5. BUY THE BIG BOTTLE: German researchers found that drinking 6 cups of cold water a day (that's 48 ounces) can raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily?enough to shed 5 pounds in a year. The increase may come from the work it takes to heat the water to body temperature. 6. EAT MORE ORGANIC FOOD: Canadian researchers report that dieters with the most organochlorines (pollutants from pesticides, which are stored in fat cells) experience a greater than normal dip in metabolism as they lose weight, perhaps because the toxins interfere with the energy-burning process. Other research hints that pesticides can trigger weight gain. Always choose organic when buying peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, lettuce, imported grapes, and pears; non-organic versions tend to have the highest levels of pesticides. 7. ALWAYS INCLUDE PROTEIN: Your body needs protein to maintain lean muscle. Add a serving, like 3 ounces of lean meat, 2 tablespoons of nuts, or 8 ounces of low-fat yogurt, to every meal and snack. Research shows protein can up postmeal calorie burn by as much as 35%. 8. EAT IRON-RICH FOODS: It's essential for carrying the oxygen your muscles need to burn fat, says Tammy Lakatos, RD, cocreator of the diet. Until menopause, women lose iron each month through menstruation. Unless you restock your stores, you run the risk of low energy and a sagging metabolism. Shellfish, lean meats, beans, fortified cereals, and spinach are excellent sources. 9. GET MORE VITAMIN D: This vitamin is essential for preserving metabolism-revving muscle tissue. Unfortunately, researchers estimate that a measly 4% of Americans over age 50 take in enough vitamin D through their diet. Get 90% of your recommended daily value (400 IU) in a 3.5-ounce serving of salmon. Other good sources: tuna, shrimp, tofu, fortified milk and cereal, and eggs. 10. SKIP THE SECOND COCKTAIL: When you have a drink, you burn less fat, and more slowly than usual, because the alcohol is used as fuel instead. Knocking back the equivalent of about two martinis can reduce your body's fat-burning ability by up to 73%. 11. DRINK MILK: "There's some evidence that calcium deficiency, which is common in many women, may slow metabolism," says Lakatos. Research shows that consuming calcium through dairy foods such as fat-free milk and low-fat yogurt may also reduce fat absorption from other foods.

Last 35 years my wife suffering from Asthma, she takes Asthalin inhaler every day. still at time she has to be admitted to hospital.Is there any treatment , so that attack will be reduced.

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine

Sir You are taking inappropriate treatment. Bronchodilator without steroid should not be taken other than as on needed basis. It increases asthma related death risk. Plz revert back with detailed history including known allergies, history of frequent cold, day night variations in breathlessness. Best wishes

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.
