Your delayed periods are not due to pregnancy, since you had sex 10 to 11 months ago. You cannot be pregnant due to that sexual activity now. Irregular Periods can be due to Hormonal Imbalances, Thyroid disorder, Stress, weight gain, nutritional deficiency etc. Remedies: -Boil 1 teaspoon saffron in ½ cup water. Let it reduce to become 1 tablespoon. Divide this decoction into three portions and take with equal quantities of water, thrice daily for 15 days. -Make a powder of Black til, saunf, methi seeds and consume it with jaggery (gur) regularly for 1month or until your periods come. Yogasanas- Bhujangasana, Sarvangasana, Ardh-Chakrasan.

Health Benefits Of Chyawanprash

1. Useful in preventing infections during seasonal changes:

When winter sets in or monsoon starts, the weather undergoes drastic changes, bringing new bacteria, germs and living organisms into the air. Some people fall prey to infections and fevers during these months. Taking chyawanprash helps your body in fighting such fungal and bacterial infections.

2. Enhances the digestive system:

If you have a weak digestive system, taking chyawanprash regularly may help you enhance it. It helps streamline bowel movements and digestion of foods. The cinnamon and amla in this formulation have carminative properties, and they help prevent flatulence. It also helps prevent constipation, a condition affecting a major part of human population.

The herbs present in this ancient formulation can help people suffering from long term and chronic respiratory ailments. It actually aids lung functioning to an extent.

4. Helps keep skin radiant and healthy:

Contrary to what many people think, applying beauty products externally on the skin is not enough to look youthful and attractive. What you take in also reflects on your skin. Chyawanprash contains a number of herbs including amla that has vitamin c in good amounts. Those herbs, when taken internally, help skin stay healthy and radiant. So, in a way, eating chyawanprash helps you thwart signs of aging to an extent. The saffron present in this elixir may aid in improving your complexion.

5. Aids in purifying blood:

People who lead a hectic life, get less sleep or gorge on junk foods frequently get excess toxins in their body. These toxins, when stored in the body, lead to the onset of several complications and ailments. They also hamper with natural blood purification process in your body. Eating chyawanprash helps in purifying the blood and eliminates those excess toxic elements from the body.

Apart from adults, kids can also better focus on their studies and concentrate on various activities by eating this ayurvedic elixir.

9. Offers energy for daily chores:

Owing to workload, incessant multitasking and tension, a lot of people feel a lack of energy in doing things, including daily chores. Chyawanprash contains plenty of herbal extracts that provide your body with enough energy to sail through the daily chores without feeling fatigued or worn out.

10. Aids weight loss:

Initially as vagina is tight so first time penile penetration is painful but it can be greatly reduced by good lubrication using ky jelly and proper sexual position IE missionary position with a pillow under hood of female partner. Do not worry about the pain as once penetration is complete then pain subsides, you have to co-operate with your husband for this.

Stop curd, cold water, spicy food, dairy products in your routine. Stop eating after 8 pm at night. Get an USg done for any cyst and to rule out PCOS. Kindly dotn panic. this regime will solve all of your problems and will manage your thyroid profile as well as your BP. Stay in touch. continue the regime for 45 days. good luck.

When to have green tea in morning before breakfast or after and what should be the time gap.
Green tea is over hyped supplement to work on entire body , to cleanse the blood vessels and to work as antioxidant to make blood pure against impurities taken along with other foods. Take it in the morning if you wish , like a cup of morning tea , or take it with breakfast as you like it. There are no rules as to how to consume green tea. By the way a recent report has shown abnormal levels of flouride in green tea. Therefore Do Not Overindulge.

I am 30 weeks pregnant and two days ago I had gas problem. My doc prescribed pantop and duvadilan. It helped with gas but then I started feeling pain in my naval area. My doc said I had umbilical hernia. It's quite painful in my case but she says it cannot be cured as I am pregnant. Also she examined me internally and says baby has come down a little bit and prescribed rest for two weeks. I have following queries 1. I am doing very less physical activity and mostly lying on bed with pillow under my feet. Can this help in umbilical hernia. 2. I am bothered by the pain at night and cannot sleep properly. Also I am quite afraid of this hernia and how it might impact my baby. Can it be cured on its own. What all shall I avoid or do in order to cure it. 3. My doc says that the pains that I had was not because of gas and should have felt like labour pains. I am not sure how to distinguish the hernia pain and labour pain. Also please let me know how common is hernia during pregnancy? Am I the only one having it or is it a common problem?

Hernia does occur during pregnancy if there has been underlying weakness pre exhisting. Fotlr its treatment is to wait and watch only till delivery. Watch over for size of swelling at umbilicus if any. Umblical hernia pain is usually not very severe. The pain you are having may be labour pains. An examination by surgeon will help in confirmation of these issues.

Hi, My wife is 32 weeks pregnant and recently she did test for fasting and non fasting sugar. Her fasting sugar is 88 mg/dl and non fasting after taking 75 gm of glucose 2 hrs before the sample collection is 143 mg/dl. We are concerned whether this number is too high? Will this affect the baby? Should she take some medicine or control diet and do exercise? Doctor has given her tablet but I don't want her to take any tablets. Doctor has prescribed her glyciphage 500. So we want to know whether through diet control and exercise she should try to maintain it, is this okay or she should take the tablet. Her weight current weight is 69 kg and baby's weight is 1367 g. She is approx. 5 feet tall.

I am a 23 yo women, I contracted a yeast infection after having unprotected sex (I have only one partner, my doctor prescribed some creams which gave me temporary relief but the infection comes back once the medication is over. I want to know which blood tests should I take so that I can rule out an STI.

BHMS, DEMS

Most vaginal yeast infections are caused by the organism Candida albicans. Yeast infections are very common and affect up to 75% of women at some point in their lifetime. The main symptom of a vaginal yeast infection is itching, but burning, discharge, andpain with urination or intercourse can also occur. The imbalance that allows the overgrowth of yeast to happen can be due to: antibiotics (they lower the amount of lactobacillus, or good bacteria, in the vagina) pregnancy uncontrolled diabetes weak immune system poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle stress lack of sleep. *Frequent symptoms include: itching burning large or small amounts of vaginal discharge, often whitish gray and thick (although there are also times the discharge can be watery) pain during sex soreness rash. Homeopathic medicine will give you best result to rid your problem completely. Consult me.

5 Great Tips For Getting Rid of Winter Phlegm

5 Great Tips For Getting Rid of Winter Phlegm

5 great tips for getting rid of winter phlegm

We all hate having snotty noses, sore throats, and winter bugs that inevitably get into our systems, as the weather turns colder, but have you ever considered that there might be easy ways to clear up all the phlegm that’s obstructing your airways and making life uncomfortable? worry no more – here are five solutions for you to get rid of any offending mucus build-up in your airways as soon as possible:

&nbsp;

1. Spice up your diet

&nbsp;

Adding spices to your diet doesn’t only boost your immune system – it also helps your body with clearing out all the nasty stuff, not least any congestion in your nasal passages in your lungs. Add small amounts of garlic, oregano, turmeric, onions, and ginger, to your regular diet. Seeing as christmas is just around the corner, you can also try spicing some apple sauce with cloves, nutmeg or cinnamon.

All the foods i’ve just mentioned contain strong antibacterial properties, which help keep the winter bugs well away. If you have children, you might want to consider temporarily cutting out dairy from their diet and giving them multivitamins or immune boosters for a few days until the phlegm clears up.

2. Sleep well

&nbsp;

Note that a blocked nose is always much worse at night-time, making it difficult to breathe and causing you to snore. Consider a saline spray and/or nose aspirators in order to keep your airways clear of phlegm. Another soothing way of clearing your airways is to inhale steam from a bowl of boiling water. You could even add a warm bath at the end of the day to your routine if you find that you’re consistently congested.

&nbsp;

3. Get loads of fresh air

&nbsp;

The colder air of the winter months tends to make all of us spend a lot more time indoors, but the reality is that for the sake of our health, we still need to ensure we get enough fresh air. Regardless of how cold it is outside, you’ll be fine if you wrap up in suitably warm clothing. In fact, taking a brisk walk is one of the best ways of drying out mucus and phlegm.

Fresh air opens up your lungs and increases blood flow, and this means that any bugs lurking in your system can be flushed out much more quickly than if you were to spend nine hours a day indoors.

4. Keep your bowels moving!

&nbsp;

Many people don’t actually realize this, but constipation can hinder your immune function, thus leaving you more susceptible to illness. The usual cause of a sluggish digestive system is food stagnating in the intestines, which in turn can lead to toxic build-up, poor elimination and increased mucus formation.

These symptoms can be alleviated by drinking more water and eating foods which contain plenty of natural fiber, such as seasonal greens and fresh fruit.

&nbsp;

&nbsp;

5. Make your own phlegm-busting cordial

&nbsp;

Here's how:

1.&nbsp;Place a few sprigs of thyme in a teapot.

2.&nbsp;Add a pint of boiling water.

3.&nbsp;Throw in a few sticks of cinnamon bark and several slices of freshly-chopped ginger.

4.&nbsp;Leave to infuse for about 10-15 minutes.

5.&nbsp;Once the water has cooled, strain and mix with a jar of good-quality honey.

6.&nbsp;Add roughly half a bag of brown sugar.

7.&nbsp;Heat the mixture in a saucepan until it begins to thicken.

8.&nbsp;Leave the resulting syrup to cool and store in the refrigerator.

Take a teaspoon of this syrup every morning, or add it to warm water infused with lemon juice for a delicious bedtime drink.
