Healthy Eating Tip

Healthy Eating Tip
Choose whole foods: as often as possible, whether food shopping or dining out, keep whole foods over processed foods as your main choice. For example, buy fresh chicken breast over the frozen breaded cutlets. At a restaurant, order steamed broccoli instead of the creamed spinach.

Hello, an endometrial biopsy may be required to rule out any endometrial cancer in her case as she has been loosing weight and I am not sure if she has been bleeding heavy as well and may be anaemic as well.

Hair fall has many reasons. Lack of proper sleep, diet, stress etc can lead to hair loss. As leucorrhoea and menstrual irregularities are there, hormonal imbalance could be there. Take good sleep. Drink plenty of water. Eat food which is rich in proteins and vitamins. Do exercise and pranayama regularly. See for 1 month. Then, consult back.

Wait and repeat the test again after a week if you won't get menses. If you are not getting pregnant then go for detailed investigation like INFERTILITY PROFILE & USG PELVIS to rule out cause of infertility.

7 Foods You Should Eat to Boost Your Energy Levels

7 Foods You Should Eat to Boost Your Energy Levels

There are times when you feel extremely fatigued and tired. This could be because of the type of foods that you are consuming on a regular basis. Certain foods, when consumed tend to spike up your blood sugar level and make you feel sleepy and sloppy.

There are certain foods which you can have to boost your energy levels:

1. Vinegar: You can add vinegar to your food and salads to prevent your blood sugar levels from spiking. Vinegar is said to have properties that prevent excessive starch absorption in the body; it also keeps your metabolic rate elevated. Mix vinegar with a glass of water and have it after meals to prevent fatigue.

2. Fruits: Fruits can provide instant energy if you are feeling lethargic. Usually in the afternoon, eating a fruit such as an apple or a watermelon will provide an instant burst of energy. Make sure you keep your portion sizes under control; else too much sugar can mess with your system.

3. Nuts: Nuts are very healthy foods to snack upon as they contain heart healthy fats and Omega-3 acids. Nuts also contain proteins that are good for your muscles and fat loss goals. Being rich in fiber, they also promote satiety.

4. Dark chocolate: You can include small portions of dark chocolate for your dessert cravings after lunch as it contains “theobromine” which helps in boosting your mood and energy levels.

5. Whole grains: Include whole grains in your diet; avoid eating refined products such as white rice and refined flour. Refined carbohydrates can spike your blood sugar levels and lead to feeling of fatigue. Eating whole grains also provides a steady supply of energy to the body.

6. Cardamom: Add these spices to your dishes and tea as they are known to stimulate blood flow and increase energy levels in the body. It is known to expand the blood vessels in the body to increase blood flow.

7. Asparagus: Asparagus contains important vitamins that allow efficient conversion of sugar into energy. It also contains plenty of fibers that promote satiety. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

I think you have not done a pregnancy test. You cannot conform a pregnancy unless you have skipped a period. If her periods last were on 9 th march, it is still 4 th april. I think she just got her periods.

Which medicine is advisable to prevent physical stress during traveling at 16th week of pregnancy.
No medicine but broken journey is the best medicine in such conditions. I mean, split the total duration of the travelling time into so many that the person can easily tolerate with sufficient rest.

What causes cramps during menstruation? What can I do about my painful periods? Please help.
Causes of cramps- infection, endometriosis, some tumours, physiological (that subsides after pregnancy), abnormalities in hormones and in blood vessels. What you can do- consult gynecologist to reach the diagnosis and treat the specific cause. At your age, most often the cramp subsides in time, after short term treatment.
