Dear, follow methods by which you can gain your desired height. 1. Follow these exercises regularly and you get the goal of height gain: * first stand straight bare foot on floor, then raise your arms upwards then raise your heels of foot with breathing in, try to stand on heels for 10-12 seconds and slowlylower down your heels back on the floor and breath outthe air. Repeat this exercise 5-8 times in morning. *sit on the floor, stretch you legs together so that both foot touch each other. Now raise your arms upwards together with back straight, now move your hands towardstoes of feet and touch them. Your forehead touching your knees. Slowly revert back the arms and move back arms in normal position. Repeat this exercise 2-4 times daily. 2. Take 200 gm of cheese and 2-3 eggs regularly. It will definitely give boost to your bone growth. 3. Sit in sun rays for atleast 8-10 minutes in morning of evenings when the sun rays are not so strong. It will help you by getting adequate quantity of vitamin-d. 4. The growth and height iscontrolled by growth hormone whichis secreted by pituitary gland situated in the brain. So take meditation and have a stressfree lifestyle. Take 6-8 hours of sleep daily. Meditation makes your pituitatry gland healthy and working properly.

Worm Infections - Signs You Are Suffering!

MBBS,MD(PGI,Chandigarh)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Worm Infections - Signs You Are Suffering!

Every parent takes that extra precaution to ensure that their child is protected. From giving only boiled and/or bottled water to multiple rounds of washing fruits and vegetables, everything is done. Despite these, when the child begins to complain of stomach ache, there is fear of a worm infection.

Types
While there are many worm infections, the four most common ones that affect children are threadworms, hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms (named after their shapes).

Causes
Worm infections are a reality, and a child can get a worm infection by one of the following routes.

  1. By eating unclean/undercooked/infected food: There could be eggs of these worms on vegetables and fruits, and if not washed thoroughly, chances of infection are high. Also, if seafood such as fish are infected with these, improper cooking of these can lead to infections.
  2. Walking barefoot on infected soil: This is the most common way to get worm infections, when children walk barefoot in damp soil.
  3. Drinking contaminated water: Some worms breed in water bodies like lakes and puddles. Playing in these areas or eating with hands contaminated in these areas can lead to infection.
  4. Contact with infected person: Either through unclean hands or fingernails contact of an infected person, the worm infection can reach the child.

Whatever the source, once these worms enter the body, they multiply and continue to grow in the child.

Symptoms
While an upset stomach is the most common symptom, the child also could be irritable. Other symptoms that are commonly seen in children are as below.

  1. Refusal to eat, both due the stomach pain and the loss of appetite
  2. Weight loss, due to reduced food intake. Additionally, the worms consume a large portion of the consumed food, reducing what is available for the child
  3. Anemia, which is especially true with hookworms
  4. Nausea
  5. Bloody stools
  6. Dehydration
  7. Itching around the anus, from where the worms could have entered the body
  8. Skin rashes or urticarial
  9. Sleep disturbances, due to the above symptoms
  10. Frequent urination
  11. Susceptibility to infections, as anemia sets in and immunity is affected
  12. Worm testing

Stool testing including cotton swab testing and sticky tape testing are done to confirm the presence of worms.

Treatment
The good news is that treating worm infections is quite easy and simple. A course of anti-parasitic or anti-worm medicine is often used to get rid of the worms and takes about a week to clear.

Prevention

  1. Deworming is done quite commonly, though it is preferably done under medical supervision.
  2. Hygiene practices with respect to cleaning hands, toys, potty practices, bathing, bedding, clean drinking water, etc., can go a long way in prevention of worms.

Hello. Sir mere back me problem ho rahi h. Or dard v ho raha h. Please kuch upaye bataye.
Hi Thanks for your query and welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from Fortis hospital, New Delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - To maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - If pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - Physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - Adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - Ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - Analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - Avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

Hi One of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take sarpgandha vati 1-1 tab twice a day. Take pranacharya no tens capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid spicy food. Junk food. Fermented food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early in the morning.

Most important symptom is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it.

split hairs have to be trimmed off. It's very evident that you have a nutritional deficiency which gives you such dull, dry, dead, rough hair with split ends. Wash hair twice a week with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo to remove dust, dirt, grime. Avoid dyes on hair since ppd in it can give you a reaction and make you sensitive. Frequent henna vil dry out hair. Oil massage scalp prior to bath and wash it off. Have milk and milk products like curd, cheese, butter, ghee, butter milk. All this vil definitely help improve the texture of your hair.
