Due to the presence of alveoli, which are balloon-like structures in the organ, your lungs do not sink but float on water.

I started to go gym. Need to know maximum time period I can walk on treadmill to avoid any bad medical condition now or in future.. Does 40 min daily walk on average speed of 4 cn harm my knees or something else?

Gud quation lybrate-user ji. See gym can have some adverse effect if you do not follow it properly. Wht I think you do not need to walk daily. 20 mins walk ulternate day at a speed of 5 to 6 km/ hr wil not harm your knees. And help your heart. You wil not get diabetes or bp. Bt see that you do not use inclination mode. If you want to use inclination you can reduce the speed to 4 to 5 km/ hr and duration 10 min. On other days you can do cycling for 20 mins.

After sexual intercourse it is bad to give a girl anti pregnant tablets after every intercourse.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
I-pill or anti pregnant tablets are to be taken in emergency situations like condom failure and sex once in a while. To have full protection oc pills like novelon is to be taken. If she already had pills many times, it acts only for a month or so and does not have any impact on the future.

DOES RICE CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
DOES RICE CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?
Rice carbs are bad; rice is not good for diabetics; rice has fat and causes weight gain- these are sadly some of the myths that most people believe.
There are a few things that you must first know about rice.
Rice contains negligible fat.
Rice is easy on the gut, eases bowel movement and rids you of bloating.
Rice has starch, about 10%, but understand that starch is a source of energy for the body and energy is essential for the body.
Rice keeps your skin fresh.
Rice, when eaten with dal/sabzi/meat/dahi, etc reduces the sugar increasing property of the meal and that is good for diabetics.
It has essential amino acids, which when consumed with dal or dahi, for example, completes the amino acid profile. Thus for a vegetarian even rice with dal or dahi can become a complete protein food.
Rice is carbohydrates so most people are told to avoid it in dinner. No food should be viewed in isolation considering a single nutrient from it. Rice has essential nutrients and carbs are essential for our body and have a calming effect, therefore great as a dinner option.
Rice has fat burning properties.
Eat the rice that is, hand pounded or single polished and which is pale whitish and you don't need to opt for brown rice.
So, let go off your fear or guilt of eating rice or for that matter any food that you have grown up eating. Eat it as much as your body needs, in the right amount and your body will never let it go wrong. Eating rice should make you feel happy. Is that not what eating food should give you- happiness.

Satvinder, This is not time to think weight loss - but focus on eating healthy, nutritious, home cooked, well balanced food... Don't let your relatives stuff you with sweet foods. Don't be afraid of ghee. Walk, brisk walk, jog or yoga regularly. Be happy - that is the key. Forgive people around you and think every day is new day towards health and happiness of you and your growing baby. best wishes... P. S. Take your vitamins!

Diabetes in Pregnant women

Diabetes in Pregnant women

The incidence of gestational diabetes is on the rise. At present 10 to 17 percent of pregnant women are developing diabetes during pregnancy. The chances of this are more if the woman is obese or if she had gestational diabetes in her previous pregnancy or a big baby earlier or if there is a family history mother father or siblings of diabetes.

This can be prevented to a great extent if a woman has a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly and maintaining body weight before and during pregnancy will minimise the risks of having diabetes in pregnancy.

I have been suffering for 1 week side breast pain near arm pit while sleeping my age is 25 years old.

I have been suffering for 1 week side breast pain near arm pit while sleeping my age is 25 years old.
Hello- If the breast pain is associated with your menses then it is normal and is due to hormonal changes during menses. However a pain lasting for more thn two weeks might be due to an underlying breast lump and should be ruled out by going to a nearby gynecologist. Don't risk it, better be on the safe side.

If you have hormonal imbalance which means its the major cause of infertility. Please follow the instructions of your gynecologist when you are going for Assisted reproductive technology (ART).It is reproductive technology used primarily for infertility treatments, and is also known as fertility treatment. The success of IUI depends on the cause of the couple's infertility. If inseminations are performed monthly with fresh or frozen sperm, success rates can be as high as 20% per cycle depending on whether fertility medications are used, the age of the female partner, and the infertility diagnosis, as well as on other factors that could affect the success of the cycle.

Homeopathy and Nasal Polyps

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathy and Nasal Polyps

A nasal polyp is a growth within the nasal cavity, which may cause problems with your health. Smaller polyps don't tend to create any problem, but larger ones can cause breathing difficulty, sneezing problems, losing the sense of smell and a dampening of taste as well. Conventional medicine usually prescribes surgery, but homeopathy has effective cures to reduce the polyp and lessen the symptoms over time.

Cures for nasal polyps in Homeopathy:

1. Phosphorus: This medication is especially effective if you have nasal polyps that bleed. This is effective with people who have a tall and slender build and tend to develop a thirst for cold water as the polyp grows within them. The polyps may bleed regularly and also block the nostrils in such a way that they get a circular motion when breathing. 

2. Lemna Minor: This medicine is very effective when there is an intense level of nasal blockage and you are experiencing anosmia or a loss of the sense of smell. These kind of nasal polyps tend to worsen during the wet season and can even cause a thick white discharge from the nose which has a foul smell.

3. Calcarea Carbonica: Useful in the cases of people who are overweight, some homeopathic doctors tend to prescribe this medication in cases where a person may be quickly affected by seasonal changes, such as hot to cold or cold to hot weather. Other symptoms where this medication is applicable are:

  • Frequent sneezing
  • Profuse sweating during the night
  • Sore nose
  • Small amounts of white discharge
  • Nostrils are mostly dry

4. Conium Maculatum: This medication is very effective if you have a dry nose, which seems to get sudden discharges irregularly. Instead of a loss of smell, you may develop a more acute sense of smell. If the patient is suffering from frequent sneezes and complains of nasal blocks in the morning, conium can be an effective remedy

5. Sanguinaria Canadensis: This medicine is know be a great remedy primarily for polyps, which are right sided or occur within the right nostril of the nose. Some of the symptoms where Sanguinaria Canadensis is very effective are:

  1. Profuse amounts of nasal discharge
  2. Frequent sneezing
  3. Swollen nasal membrane
  4. Right sided headache along with right sided blockage of nostrils

She is suffering from vaginal infection. She should insert clingen pessary every night for 3 days and take fas-3 kit. This kit should also be given to you and use condoms for 7 days. Kit is self explanatory as when to take is written on the back of kit and it is a single day course.

Irregular periods can be caused due to menstrual cycle disorders. They are very common and can be easily treated with medications. Every month the brain, ovaries & uterus follow a sequence of events to prepare the body for pregnancy. There are four major hormones which are at play here, the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), progesterone and estrogen. Menstrual cycle disorders occur from conditions that affect the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, ovaries, uterus, cervix, or vagina. You should also look out for other signs such as pregnancy, family history of irregular periods, Acne issues, hair on face or chest, gained weight recently, hot flashes, night sweats, frequent headaches, stress or taking any herbal medications. You should urgently see a doctor if you have been having irregular periods for more than three menstrual periods (either consecutively or over the course of a year). In physical exam, we will thoroughly check your reproductive organs and breast. Commonest test done are hemoglobin, iron studies, hormonal assays and ultrasound abdomen. Treatment is given depending upon the cause which can be found out after thorough examination by a Homoeopath, so visit your nearest Homoeopath today.

First you have to make your system clean so that good foods help you and not become a waste. Deworming - 3 tabs of nemocid together + 200 mg metrogyl twice daily after food for 3 days. Eat simple proteins like eggs, milks, curds, pulses, nuts etc. Take natural form of vitamin c like oranges, lemon juice, amla and other fruits, every grain is allowed including rice but wheat is better as it is wholesome. Good fats like nuts and butter, avoid bad fats, take lots of vitamins in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables, do exercises like stretching, walking, cycling, depending upon your stamina.
