Hi hair needs diet rich in proteins as the strands of hair are made up of protein, beside dietary factors other factors like stress, sleep deprivation, medical illness, pollution and some medication are known to cause hairfall. Use of hair styling products, hair gels containing harsh chemicals also contribute to hair fall. Frequent t change of shampoo also causes hair to fall. Pollution rainwaters, exposure to sun makes hair dry and lustreless. Regular oiling and washing cleans the scalp n maintains healthy hair. To prevent hairfall start using arnica hair oil as it helps in checking the hair fall. Start consuming diet rich in proteins and antioxidants, have plenty of water and fruits. You can also apply coconut water at the roots of your hair it will give strength to the hair. For homoeopathic treatment consult at homoeo healing centre.

Brush twice a day advice is for school kids.

With age, eating habits also change and so brushing twice a day is not enough.

Oral habits change with age. Flossing by the patient & cleaning by the dentist is essential after 15 years of age.

People with habits like smoking, tobacco chewing, Paan, Alcoholism, systemic diseases like diabetes, blood pressure, heart problems etc. Need special care & attention as gum problems can cause & aggravate heart conditions.

Hello doc. I'm a 15 years old school going girl. And I've been having nightmares constantly for a week, to say. It's kinda awkward to tell. It's like I'm used to them now but sometimes they're so dreadful that I feel like screaming aloud in my bed (In midnight, it's so not okay you see). Last night I saw someone die before my eyes. And the scene is still lingering through my mind. Some of the dreams include being chased in a graveyard, ghosts roaming around in my house, and then this. A death and the spirits. I'm scared to death. I can't sleep. I don't want to sleep. But that's not possible of course. So please help me out on this. I don't wanna have those nightmares again. It's making me sick. Mentally sick. I want to go to a psychiatrist but I can't. For my parents think psychiatrists treat only a mentally retarded person.:(Please help me out. It's the only beam of hope I see.

HI lybrate-user, Bad dreams can be very unpleasant. Apart from being an uncomfortable experience, they can also interrupt sleep. Nightmares can have many causes, but the main causes are stress and trauma. Thankfully there are some steps you can take to stop these nightmares from occurring, allowing peaceful and restful sleep to return. Follow these methods to avoid having these nightmares in the first place. Don't dwell on your nightmares. Even though they may be truly terrifying and stick with you, try your best not to worry about them. Allowing them to cause your more stress and fear will only increase the likelihood of more nightmares in the future. Try to focus on positive life events instead of fear and worry. Thinking of a safe space or a loved one will help keep your mind in a positive space. Think of how much better your sleep is becoming now that you are improving it. Don't take your worries to bed with you. As much as possible, leave any fears or concerns behind you as you lay down to sleep. Dwelling on these negative things as you fall asleep will only increase the likelihood of having a bad dream. As you fall asleep, focus your mind on the rhythm of your breath. Gently and naturally, follow your inhalations and exhalations with your mind. If your mind wanders, refocus on your breath. Focusing on your breath will allow your thoughts to pass by without disturbing your sense of calm. Try not to dwell on any thoughts as you fall asleep. Let your thoughts pass by without focusing on them or making judgements about them Practice visualizing a safe space. If you feel too stressed or find yourself focusing on negativity, try imagining a safe space. By visualizing a safe space, you can find relief from the source of your anxiety for a time, allowing you to return relaxed and refocused. Find a real, physical space that you can get comfortable in. Start to imagine your safe space. Your safe space can be any place at all, real or imagined, that makes your feel secure and relaxed. Use all of your senses in your imagining of your safe space. See, hear, smell, feel, and maybe even taste your secure and safe space. Be aware of your body and any tension you are carrying. Release and relax that tension as you enjoy your safe space. Be in your space for for at least five to ten minutes. When you feel relaxed, slowly return by opening your eyes and calmly sitting for another minute. Use imagery rehearsal therapy. If your nightmares have repetitive elements or happen frequently, you can use imagery rehearsal therapy to rewrite your bad dreams. Follow these steps to take control of your nightmare: If you have a recurring nightmare, write it down in detail. Make any changes you want with your nightmare or write an entirely new dream that you want to have. For example, if you encounter a monster in your nightmare, try changing it into a kitten. Before bed, and throughout the day, imagine your new dream with the changes you made. Visualize the new narrative and remind yourself that this is how the dream is now. Be confident that this new dream is the one you will experience instead of the old nightmare. There are a multitude of additional potential causes. Examine the following possible causes of your nightmares to see if any of them are applicable to your situation: A new drug prescribed by your healthcare provider. Certain medications could cause nightmares as a side effect. Interactions with existing prescriptions and any new medications could also be responsible. Ask your doctor about any new prescriptions and if they may be responsible for your nightmares. Drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol consumption can cause nightmares by interrupting deeper levels of sleep, when dreams often occur. Reduce alcohol consumption to improve sleep quality and reduce the frequency of nightmares caused by heavy alcohol usage. Eating just before going to bed. When you eat before bed, your metabolism increases, keeping you awake and preventing you from having deep, restful sleep. Avoid any snacks before bed to sleep better and lower the chances of having a nightmare. Illness with a fever. Being ill, especially with a fever, can interrupt sleep patterns and cause nightmares. After you recover from the fever or illness, your nightmares should reduce in frequency. If they do not, talk with your doctor and look for another possible cause together. Stopping certain prescriptions. Ending your usage of a prescription, with a doctor's order, can be responsible for nightmares. If you are experiencing nightmares after ending a prescription, ask your doctor if this may be responsible and what to expect as you end the medication. Your nightmares may have common elements or will be exact repeats of previous nightmares. If you have the same nightmare consistently there may be unique causes behind this type of nightmare. The two main causes repeating nightmares are: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 71% to 96% of those with PTSD have been found to have may have nightmares. PTSD is caused by a terrifying event, either witnessed or undergone directly. Severe anxiety or depression. Suffering from either severe anxiety or depression can cause repetitive nightmares. Work with your doctor, therapist, or counselor to help reduce your anxiety or depression, which will in turn help to stop your nightmares. Improve your sleep. Take actions to make the quality of your sleep improve. Poor sleeping habits can make nightmares more likely to occur. Take some of the following steps to help get a good nights rest: Get regular exercise. Exercise helps you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Limit caffeine and alcohol. Both can reduce the quality of your sleep. Make time for activities that you enjoy. Practice meditation or relaxation techniques. Have a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday Make your bedroom a place for sleep only. Don't do any other activities in your bedroom that would be counted as “waking” activities. By mentally establishing that your bed is a place for sleep and rest alone, you will be able to fall asleep more quickly and more deeply. Avoid any activities, even simple ones such as reading or watching TV, while in your bed. Only go to bed when tired and ready for sleep. See, You are not alone. Nightmares are extremely common, affecting eighty to ninety percent of people at some point in their lives. Most often, a counselor or psychologist will help you to overcome your nightmares and you can consult me for same. All the best Hope it helped.

Apply an ice pack to the painful area of your head. Try placing it on your forehead, temples, or the back of your neck. Take a warm bath or shower; take a nap; or take a walk. Ask someone to rub your neck and back, or treat yourself to a massage. Apply gentle, steady rotating pressure to the painful area of your head with your index finger and/or thumb. Maintain pressure for seven to 15 seconds, then release. Repeat as needed. Rest, sit, or lie quietly in a low-lit room. Close your eyes and try to release the tension in your back, neck, and shoulders. Get your blood pressure checked and revert.

Hello, constant high sugar, i. E hba1c above 6 means that you don't have good control over your blood sugar levels. This is definitely a good reason for burning in the feet. Try reducing your blood sugar and the burning will reduce gradually.

Your bmi is 27.1 which should be below 25. You r likely to be suffering from pcod. Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal bmi of 18-25. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant in future. You can take metformin to reduce weight. Also diet and jogging or brisk walk for 4-5 km daily will help. Diet should comprise of more protein (chicken, fish, pulses) low carbohydrate (rice) and low fat or oil and more vegetables.

If the pain is only during working and not there otherwise then maybe its just because of weakness in muscles. If your x ray and other investigations are normal then you should srart exercising your back. Specially the core muscles.

Yes. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Are Bananas Fattening or Weight Loss Friendly?

Are Bananas Fattening or Weight Loss Friendly?

Are Bananas Fattening or Weight Loss Friendly?

People who want to improve their health are often advised to eat more fruits and vegetables. However, some people worry that high-sugar fruits like bananas can be fattening.

This article explores whether bananas will make you gain or lose weight.

Nutrition Facts of Bananas

Bananas are high in many nutrients and provide many health benefits

They contain lots of fiber, carbs and some essential vitamins and minerals.

A medium-sized banana contains

  • Potassium: 12% of the RDI.
  • Vitamin B6: 20% of the RDI.
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 8% of the RDI.
  • Copper: 5% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 15% of the RDI.
  • Fiber: 3.1 grams.

This is coming with around 105 cal, 90% of which come from carbs. Most of the carbs in ripe bananas are sugars - sucrose, glucose, and fructose.

On the other hand, bananas are low in both fat and protein.

Bananas also contain a number of beneficial plant compounds and antioxidants, including dopamine and catechin.

Bananas Are High in Fiber, But Low in Calories

Calorie for calorie, bananas contain a lot of fiber. One medium banana provides around 12% of your recommended daily intake, with just 105 calories.

Fiber is important for maintaining regular bowel habits and plays a vital role in digestive health. An adequate fiber intake is also linked to reduced body weight.This effect is thought to occur because fiber makes you feel full for longer, which may help you eat fewer calories over the long term.

The Greener the Banana, the Higher the Resistant Starch

The type of carbs in a banana depends on how ripe it is.

Unripe, green bananas are high in starch and resistant starch, while ripe, yellow bananas contain mostly sugars. Resistant starches are long chains of glucose (starch) that are resistant to digestion. They act like soluble fiber in the body and have lots of potential health benefits. This includes weight loss and reduced blood sugar levels. Resistant starch can also slow down the absorption of sugar from foods. This keeps your blood sugar levels stable and helps you feel full. Furthermore, resistant starch may also increase fat burning.

Bananas Have a Low Glycemic Index, But it Depends on Ripeness

The glycemic index (GI) measures how much foods raise blood sugar levels. If a food scores lower than 55, it's considered to have a low GI. 56-69 is medium, while a score above 70 is high. Foods that contain a lot of simple sugars are quickly absorbed and have a high GI value since they cause a greater rise in blood sugar levels. Eating a lot of high-GI foods has been linked to weight gain and an increased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Foods with more slowly absorbed carbs have a lower GI and keep your blood sugar levels stable. Since bananas are 90% carbs, they're sometimes considered to be a high-sugar fruit that could spike your blood sugar. However, the GI score of bananas is 42-62, depending on ripeness. This makes them low to medium on the glycemic index.

Ripe bananas have a higher GI than greener bananas. The sugar content increases as the banana matures, which in turn affects your blood sugar levels. That said, overall bananas seem to release their sugars slowly.

Low-GI foods like bananas may also help you feel full and keep blood sugar levels stable.This may lead to weight loss over time.

Fattening or Weight Loss Friendly?

Bananas are healthy and nutritious, there is no doubt about that. They are also high in fiber, but low in calories.

Most bananas have a low to medium glycemic index, and should not cause big spikes in blood sugar levels compared to other high-carb foods.

Although there are no studies that directly examine the effects of bananas on weight, they do have several properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food.

If you are trying to lose weight, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating bananas as a part of a balanced, real food based diet.
