Many of us today have jobs which require extended periods of sitting

MD - Pharmacology, ECFMG certified , MBBS
General Physician, Navi Mumbai
Many of us today have jobs which require extended periods of sitting. Is it good for us? Definitely not.

Research has shown that sitting for prolonged durations has many dangerous effects on our body in the long term.

1) On your back -
The problem: sitting for long hours can cause muscle aches and pains. It can also lead to abnormal bending of your spine which may make one more prone to have long term back pain.
The solution: keep your back straight and maintain proper posture.

2) On your weight -
The problem: according to a recent research, people who say they watch television frequently are 40 per cent less likely to exercise than non-tv watchers.
The solution: get up and get moving.

3) On your brain
The problem: researchers recently found that prolonged session of watching tv before going to bed makes it harder to fall asleep, reduces sleep, and makes one groggy the next day, even after clocking eight hours of sleep. The reason is that the blue light which the television emits, inhibits the release of melatonin, a hormone that helps you go to sleep.
The solution: limit your tv viewing to two hours after work.

4) On your lungs
The problem: among the many health hazards it causes, sitting for long hours can also shrink your lung capacity by a third, so you get less oxygen, which causes a decrease in mental focus the second you sit on the couch.
The solution: sit on a chair with a pillow behind your lower back. It is a position that helps open your lungs.

5) On your heart
The problem: An international study found out that on an average, every single hour of television watching after 25 reduces life expectancy by close to 22 minutes.
The solution: researchers have discovered little mortality risk for people who watch less than an hour a day. Pick a show that's a real brain numbing deal, so you're more likely to need time between episodes.

खांसी के लिए घरेलू उपचार

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
खांसी से बचाव के लिए घरेलू उपचार

• गाय के दूध का 15-20 ग्राम घी और काली मिर्च को एक कटोरी में लेकर हल्की आंच में गरम कीजिए। जब काली मिर्च गरम हो जाए तो उसे थोडा सा ठंडा करके लगभग 20 ग्राम पीसी मिश्री मिला दीजिए। उसके बाद काली मिर्च निकालकर खा लीजिए। इस खुराक को दो-तीन दिन तक लेने से खांसी बंद हो जाएगी।
• तुलसी के पत्ते 5 काली मिर्च, 5 नग काला मनुक्का, 5 ग्राम चोकर (गेहूं के आटे का छान), 6 ग्राम मुलहठी, 3 ग्राम बनफशा के फूल लेकर 200 ग्राम पानी में उबाल लीजिए। जब पानी आधा हो जाए तो उसे ठंडा करके छान लीजिए। फिर गर्म करें और बताशे डालकर रात को सोते समय गरम-गरम पी लीजिए। इस खुराक को 3-4 दिन तक लेने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• खांसी होने पर सेंधा नमक की डली को आग पर अच्छे से गरम कर लीजिए। जब नमक की डली गर्म होकर लाल हो जाए तो तुरंत आधा कप पानी में डालकर निकाल लीजिए। सोने से पहले इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में काफी आराम मिलता है।
• एक ग्राम सेंधा नमक और 125 ग्राम पानी को आधा होने तक उबालिये। सुबह-शाम इस पानी को पीने से खांसी में आराम मिलता है।
• खांसी आने पर सोंठ को दूध में डालकर उबाल लीजिए। शाम को सोते वक्त इस दूध को पी लीजिए। ऐसा करने से कुछ दिनों में खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• शहद, किशमिश और मुनक्के को मिलाकर खाने से खांसी ठीक हो जाती है।
• त्रिफला में बराबर मात्रा में शहद मिलाकर पीने से खांसी में फायदा होता है।
• तुलसी, कालीमिर्च और अदरक की चाय पीने से भी खांसी समाप्त होती है।
• हींग, त्रिफला, मुलेठी और मिश्री को नींबू के रस में मिलाकर चाटने से भी खांसी में फायदा मिलता है।

सूखी खांसी कुछ ज्यादा ही तकलीफदेह होती है। सूखी खांसी में कफ नहीं आता सिर्फ खांसी आती है जो परेशान करती है। खांसी अगर ज्यादा दिन तक आए तो उसे नजरअंदाज नहीं करना चाहिए। दो हफ्ते से ज्यांदा खांसी आने पर चिकित्सक से संपर्क अवश्य करना चाहिए।

General Physician,
Yawning is a normal response by the body to drowsiness or fatigue. Yawning may also be triggered by observing someone else yawning. ... This can occur when you are tired, weary or drowsy. Some medications, such as those used to treat depression, anxiety or allergies, can cause excessive yawning.

My daughter is 8 years old. She has suffering cough problem and disturb to take air in morning 3 am. Dust, hot temp, cold, is problem. A minor sound is release from chest when she take air. More cough is deposited inside the chest. Not disease food properly. Discontinue stool.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
As per your description, she probably has bronchila asthma. Try to avoid exposure to dust/smoke etc. Do not use deo, perfume or anti mosquito spray or coil in the bedroom. Give her steam whenever she has cough. Ensure that you give her influenza vaccine, this is very beneficial in such cases. She also might require long term inhalers, for which you have to consult your paediatrician.

Is there a genetic factor to strokes? What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

PHD, MD
Ayurveda, Udupi
There is no such direct relation bet genetics and stroke but risk factors of stroke like blood pressure and diabetics is of genetic tendency. Familial asthma can be controlled with preventive measures like changing diet and medicine but total cure is difficult. Continuous intake of herbal medicines like swamala (dootapapeshvar, chawanaprasham is reducing the severity and frequency of attacks and also well respond to simple medicines of ayurveda or other medicnes during attack.

I have 101 temperature from last tree days and my tonsils are too much infected. I did gargle with disprin many time sometimes I feel better but my temperature is as it is. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infection. Tonsillitis is common, especially in children. The condition can occur occasionally or recur frequently. Under normal circumstances, as viruses and bacteria enter the body through the nose and mouth, they are filtered in the tonsils. Within the tonsils, white blood cells of the immune system destroy the viruses or bacteria by producing inflammation which also lead to fever. The infection may also be present in the throat and surrounding areas, causing inflammation of the pharynx. Medication: With the help of homoeopathic medication, the surgery can be avoided! Take Schwabe’s Alpha-Tons/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Warm salt water gargle is recommended. Cover your throat with a stole.

You do not mention whether you are on medication or also into counseling simultaneously. If not you should get their help and they will explain your problems. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you.

I am 15 year old male boy I am suffering from asthma from birth how to cure due to tablets I have become fat what is the cure.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. You will need to undergo a detailed examination and pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of asthma based on which treatemnt can be started. Asthma is chronic and a common problem causing symptoms. Unfortunately it can not be cured but can definitely be controlled so that you can lead a symptom free life. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

I am having cough since last 2 week what are the precaution that I have to take and what test should I go for?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
You should get yourself checked up for the cause of cough. There are multiple reasons for cough occurring for 2 weeks, but its always good to know the reason. The precautions you may take is you may use a mask or handkerchief over face and nose when you cough specially in public, so that your infection does not spread to others. You may take steam inhalations to relief cough a bit, avoid taking cold water and going in cold air as they may increase your coughing.
