Chicken pox is a viral infection from varicella zoster virus. Airborne spread. Symptoms like body pain, headache, fever, malaise, sore throat along with rosy hue blebs distributed in the body. Sometimes fever the temperature may shoot up to 104 degree. Usually fever subsides as pleomorphism of eruption stops. Best diet is rice water (Kanji) steamed foods which are oil less and easily digestible one. Better avoid all cold foods, even yogurt, buttermilk, bananas, grapes. Etc which may enhance sore throat. Take plenty of warm water and adequate bed rest is inevitable. Watery blebs gets dried up after 3-4 days with brown scabs, some may took time to dry. Do not scratch to make it infected. @ weeks may need to fall the scabs. Homoeopathic medicines are safe and gets speedy recovery for viral diseases. All associated symptoms vanishes on correct medication.

Food itself is Medicine

Food itself is Medicine

Whenever we discuss about diseases, we have to discuss about food. Old generation india had a food culture, now we lost everything.
After we born in uterus, we started to eat from what our mother eats, after we die, we eaten by worms, fishes tress. If you didn't respect your annam (food, it will change the behaviour of cells and soon we become ill. Bcz cells generated from annam.

3 things never do with your food.

1. Never refuse food
2. Never avoid food
3. Once you say" no" then never eat the food.

  • If somebody invite us for a lunch, we says no. If you already had food, then tell them" I had just now, we will definitely have some other time.
  • If somebody invited and you didn't eat anything or you r hungry, still says" no"
  • It's a irrespect of that annam, which your cells made.
  • Don't ready the food on table before you sit. You should wait for food, food should not wait you.
  • Same like, leave the table only after taken the food from table not before.
  • Eat the food with only full satisfaction.(thrupthi)
  • Always respect and thankful to who farm the food, cook the food, serve the food. Never irrespect them.
  • Ayurveda says, we not only eat food through our mouth, but with our nose, eyes, etc. Thats why acharya's says never showcase or demo food. You are eating that food with your eyes and nose.

This things are more than enough to prevent you from diseases and being healthy. If you do not, then no matter what medicines you take, you will not cured anyway!

Dear lybrate user. According to ayurveda this problem is due to dushit rakta dosha. And treatment is, at first stop formation of dushit rakta and purify the rakta by using ayurveda medicines. So at first you have to follow some basic things so that formation of dushit rakta can be avoided. 1) take food two times in a day only 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals 3) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast and fermented foods 4) avoid late night sleeping habits 5) do yogasan and pranayam regularly. A) take 60 ml of aamla juice and 10 ml of honey along with 60 ml of lukewarm water early in the morning on empty stomach. B) take 30 ml of trifala juice along with 30 ml of water after meals. C) take 30 ml of aloe vera juice along with 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for thirty days, you will get good result, reply me for further suggestions. Thanks.

Fibromyalgia - Best Ways To Manage It!

Fibromyalgia - Best Ways To Manage It!

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition marked by constant flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, insomnia and joint pains. However, the disease has no visible symptoms. There are also no known causes for the disease. While some believe stress to be a trigger for fibromyalgia, other theories suggest that physical and emotional factors such as a prior illness lead to the onset of this disease. This leads to fibromyalgia patients being often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Almost 80% of fibromyalgia patients are women. While the disease is not lethal, it can make daily life difficult.

The criteria for fibromyalgia were established only in the late 1900s. In addition, the symptoms of this disease present themselves differently in each patient. This makes diagnosis very difficult.

  • Constant pain all over the body is the most common symptom of fibromyalgia.
  • You may also feel constantly tired, and unable to get a restful sleep.
  • Some fibromyalgia patients also suffer from depression or anxiety and an irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Fibromyalgia patients may also feel hyper sensitive to cold or heat, and feel numbness in fingers and toes.

Fibromyalgia has no known cure, and like arthritis, treatment for this disease addresses its symptoms. Most treatment programs include a combination of drugs, physical therapy, and behavioral techniques.

Pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medication and antidepressants are the two types of drugs administered to fibromyalgia patients. However, these should not be counted on as a long-term solution, as the side effects of these medicines can cause additional problems. Therapeutic massages and chiropractic manipulations can also help ease the pain. Along with this, it is also important to rest and relax. This helps reduce stress which often triggers fibromyalgia symptoms.

To get a better night's sleep, try going to bed and getting up at the same time every day. A warm glass of milk or chamomile tea just before bedtime can also help induce sleep. As far as possible, avoid taking sleeping tablets, as the body can soon become dependent on these.

Though you may constantly feel tired, increasing the day to day activity levels can have a positive effect on your health. Consider adding low-intensity activities such as walking, cycling, yoga or dancing to your daily routine. Complement these with a well-balanced, nutritious diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables. If you or a loved one has fibromyalgia, bad days may not be prevented. But with treatment, they can be controlled. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

It seems probably you spend a long time on your computer and you have developed computer vision syndrome. Go to a clinic for eye check up. You are using /not using glasses, in either case, get your refraction done. May be the number might have changed. If your vision is normal, you have to go for orthoptic checkups which may be probable cause for asthenopic symptoms.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Recurrent fever with high leucocyte counts at interval of every one month may be due to frequent infection. In this age 6-8 infections in a year is common as the immune system is not fully developed. But if infection is severe enough to cause hospital admission or prolong illness proper evaluation should be done. I would be better able to answer if history is provided in detail. Regards.

5 Foods to eat if you suffer from Piles

5 Foods to eat if you suffer from Piles

Piles, commonly known as hemorrhoid is a condition that leads to pain, discomfort and irritation while passing stool. It is caused due to inflammation of the veins in the lower rectum area. Piles is of two types: internal and external, one can suffer from both simultaneously. The damage in the lower rectum area is a result of aging, chronic constipation, pregnancy, diarrhea and consuming processed food on a daily basis. Piles also lead to bleeding not just while passing the stool but anytime. It is recommended to monitor one's diet and construct a plan that helps to diminish the problem. Here are certain types of foods which can help you deal with Piles better.

  1. Whole grains - People suffering from piles are recommended to include a lot of healthy whole grains into their diet like bran cereal, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta. These fiber rich foods soften the stool and help reduce the pain.
  2. Leafy green vegetables - Green vegetables are packed with antioxidants and nutrients that help with digestion. Strengthening the digestive system is important while treating piles. Broccoli, sprouts, carrots, brussels, cabbage, tomato, asparagus, cauliflower, onions, cucumber are some of the vegetables that one should consume while battling piles.
  3. Fruits - Fruits are high in nutrients, fiber, minerals and vitamins that help to regulate the bowel movement. Fruits that can be eaten with their skin on like apples, prunes, raisins, grapes, berries are full of fiber and are very beneficial. The ones that have to be eaten without the skin are good too, for example, papaya, banana, oranges.
  4. Beans - Beans are high in fiber content and should be included in regular meals of a piles patient. Kidney, black, lima, navy beans, black-eyed peas, legumes are some good options.
  5. Water - Although it is not a food, water is an important ingredient when it comes to treating piles. It is advisable to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily which helps with the smooth functioning of the bowel movement.

I'm suffering from pimples on face how can I reduce pimples and black marks. On my face.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I'm suffering from pimples on face how can I reduce pimples and black marks. On my face.
Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. In order to stop the formation of pimples the aforesaid four causes should be terminated. Now the bitter truth is neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.

Sometimes I really feel down and cant get the motivations n to get up and do something. Then when I'm pushed, I react violently and aggressively. But other times, when I'm not under pressure, life is smooth! What should I do with these episodes?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Your aggression in hiding emotions like fear, embarrassment, sadness etc which men can't express in our society openly. In some societies it is acceptable to express aggression rather than weakness. This becomes very pressurising for men especially because our menfolk get implied messages to be strong at all times. You need to realise your limitations too as everyone has limitations including men. Yet, there will be times that you will face challenges which will be beyond your capacities. How can you remain calm, peaceful and in charge of your temper is an art by itself. 1. Learning to say "no" is a big art. Do this assertively and without getting angry. Know and accept your limitations. Share it with others. Help them in a way that is possible for you without stressing yourself. 2. Preempt and prepare yourself for upcoming demands. Knowing the pulse of your family and boss can help you feeling prepared for demands on you. 3. Sharpening your skills of planning, organising, time management. These will help you to feel more in control of yourself and your time. 4. Take out time for yourself. When you are busy taking care of others needs, you need to take care of your own body and mind. Relax, relax, relax.Do what you like in this time. Pamper yourself.You deserve it. Also remember that showing aggression and violence is an anti social behaviour. It separates people emotionally even though they live with you. Learn to respect yourself and them too. A counsellor will be able to help you learn skills of effective communication so that you don't feel too pressurised.
