Ayurveda and Cirrhosis of Liver

Ayurveda and Cirrhosis of Liver

Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine, which originated in India. Liver cirrhosis is one of the many irreversible diseases which Ayurveda can treat completely. There are a number of Ayurvedic remedies which can stop the disease from progressing to its irreversible stage. Here are some of the most common Ayurvedic medicines which have been proven to slow down the progression of liver cirrhosis:

  1. Bhringraj: According to Ayurvedic doctors, Bhringraj is one of the best natural cures to liver cirrhosis. A teaspoon of bhringaraj juice mixed with honey is considered the best way to administer this herbal remedy.
  2. Katuki: Katuki is a better choice when the liver cirrhosis has occurred to someone elderly. Usually, the root of the herb is used in its powdered form. According to Ayurveda, Katuki should be taken three times a day with the powder dissolved in honey. Katuki makes the liver a lot better by making it reactivate the tissue and produce bile. Reducing constipation is another benefit which this provides.
  3. Arogyavardhini Vati: Arogyavardhini Vati is a compound of Katuki and copper. It is worth note that copper is also very useful in treating liver cirrhosis. The best way to administer this treatment is to give it in tablet form three times a day. The usual strength of the tablet should be 250 mg. The dose is often increased to four tablets a day if the condition is more serious than the doctors had thought it to be.
  4. Papaya seeds: Papaya seeds are another excellent Ayurvedic remedy for liver cirrhosis and especially alcoholic liver cirrhosis. They are also easy to be consumed as they can be taken either raw or in the form of a juice. One tablespoon of the juice of papaya seeds along with ten drops of fresh lime juice can really help improve your condition in just a month.

Finally, it should also be kept in mind that Ayurveda has a whole host of other medicines which can treat liver cirrhosis and these include triphala, trivala, vasaka and kakamachi.

Can have anal intercourse? If so, suggest any lubrication, Pl also mention age preference.

One can have anal sex. But should use a good amount of lubricant. Because anal linings are very thin and there are chances of tears because of friction. Can use vaseline or liqid paraffin or any other cold cream.

Pod stands for pouch of douglas, you know in olden times organs and spaces in human body were named after person discovering them, douglas was the one to note there was some space around uterus which is empty and pouch like, because the uterus has to grow many times when it's carrying a baby. If not pregnant this space can be infected with pus due to unsterile instruments during deliveries, abortion etc. It's also called pid, pelvic inflammatory disease, common quack calls it sujan, and makes simple treatment complicated. With invent of ultrasound done to rule out or to confirm the disease, there are good oral antibiotics available and there is no need to give injections of antibiotics to earn money, to bother the woman to cone daily to doctor.

My girlfriend is urging me to have sex with her (she trusts me very much and I love her so much too). But she is only 15 years old. And I'm 20 years old. Now if I refuse to have sex with her, she will certainly get hurt and also she will think I'm gay. So finally I've decided to do the same with her in safe mode. Now my question is will it harmful for her as she is too young? And if not I want to know the safest way of not getting pregnant.

Super Fact of the Day: You can hold a person's hands to beat stress!

General Physician, Hyderabad
Super Fact of the Day: You can hold a person's hands to beat stress!

If you're loved one or friend is stressed out, reduce his stress by holding that person's hands. Research has found that holding hands can significantly reduce a person's stress levels as it lowers cortisol (stress hormone) production, and increases the production of oxytocin, the love hormone.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

Is there any sideffect to sucking vagina as my girlfriend friend force me to do every time when we do sex.

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
1.pussy sucking may be harmful for you in two regards. one that if its not in hygenic condition then it may harm you with infection. the second one is due to the fact that licking is super exciting for any female up there , it may reduce the pleasure and sensation while having sex. its like when we don't touch a place in our body, it is more sensitive and if used again and again , the sensitivity decreases. for this reason it might be harmful for you in future that you may not be able to bring her to orgasm/or same leve of satisfaction with orgasm without your tongue so take due care for that , once in a while it can be considered good but not always. 2) by washing its actually a benefit, and no harm accrues to either her or you...!!!

Usually the ovulation occurs on the 12 th to 14 days of first day of menstruation. So the try should be maximum from the 10th to the 18 th day from the first day of menstruation... for further advise consult as there are many other factors to consuder. Like there is 1 degree of rise in temperature from usual on the day of ovulation so that you can track it.

Hi, there is no chance of pregnancy if sex is done day before the menstruation, as per your words no entry of sprm seen during the intercourse. So no chance about the pregnancy need not to take pills. It is due to stress which invites hormonal dis balance. Wait it will occur very soon soon after you become normal. Ok.

Do You Bite Your Nails? – Here’s How to Keep it in Check
Nail Biting – How to Keep it in Check

Nail biting or onychophagia is mostly subconscious habit triggered by stress, boredom, anxiety or depression. Nail biters acquire this bad habit in their childhood in majority of cases.

While it may seem like a fairly harmless habit, in actuality it is NOT! Nail biting habit may cause finger and nail infections, dental problems, mouth infections and also ugly appearance to your fingers and hands. Hence it becomes necessary to keep this bad habit in check. Try following ways if you wish to give up the habit.

1. Identify the causes/ triggers and fix them
As mentioned, anxiety, depression and stress can trigger nail biting. Fix these causes by practicing meditation, yoga regularly. If required and prescribed by qualified doctor, take medicines to resolve the issues.

2. Engage yourself in joyful activities
As boredom is another cause of nail biting, engage yourself in some light activities like reading good books, music, planting or anything you like.

3. Be determined
Be strongly determined to give up the habit. Keep telling yourself to stop this bad habit. Try to be aware the times when you put fingers in mouth to bite nails and stop then and there from doing so.

4. Nail strengthener
Stronger and well shaped nails will make you less tempted to nail biting.

5. Let your friends and family know
Informing your friends and family about your determination to kick the habit will help you with their watchful eyes as you might be biting nails even unconsciously.

6. Try fake nails/ gloves
Fake nails will not only enhance beauty of your nails but also will aid you to give up nail biting. If you do not wish to use fake nails, use gloves for few days to keep the habit in check.

7. Manicure
Manicure beautifies your nails giving them a bright and attractive look. Thus it helps psychologically to kick the habit as you are less likely to spoil your beautiful nails.
