Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

A Quick Guide to Geriatric Nutrition

Special nutritional needs are often required in special circumstances. Unlike adults from 20 to 60, children and elderly people have specific needs as their physical requirements are different. Just like pregnant women need tailor-made diets for their specific needs, children and elderly people also require appropriate diets without too much variation.

The requirement for geriatric or elderly nutrition

As the body ages, certain functions within are slowed down and thus, the processes are not able to completely recuperate and replenish what was lost. Certain functions are affected more than others and hence, need specific nutrients to regenerate.

Tips for Geriatric Nutrition

Let's take a look at some of the specific diet requirements as well as certain items, which should be avoided.

1. Consumption of calcium rich foods - Bones are a part of the human body that tend to suffer a lot of wear and tear and they start showing signs of weakening after 60. It is thus, important to replenish calcium in the body to help the bones get their building blocks. Some examples of calcium-rich foods are almonds and green leafy vegetables like kale. Dairy products are also good as long as the fat content within them is low.

2. Keeping the body hydrated - Although physical activity reduces with age, dehydration can still occur within senior people and thus, it is important that they remain hydrated. Simply drinking water may not be enough and juices or other water-rich foods such as watermelons should be used to supplement for hydration.

3. Lessening sodium within the body - The presence of excess sodium in the body can cause blood pressure to shoot up and result in high blood pressure, which may then further result in more ailments like strokes. It is pertinent that foods rich in sodium such a red meats be lessened or cut out of the diet altogether.

4. Lessening sugar consumption or any other foods that may exacerbate diabetes - Another factor to consider is the consumption of sugar and sugar-filled products. Not just for diabetics, but elderly people have a tendency to develop high blood sugar and hence, it is prudent to reduce sugar intake.

Allergies and infections many a times present similar pictures. Cetrizine only reduces itching. It's not a cure for allergies. Evion is a general vitamin e for skin tonic. It has no direct connection with allergies. Allergies happen when your body responds to foreign substances in a different way and try to destroy them. There is no apparent reason for this hypersensitivity. Ayurveda offers treatment to change the body's such abnormal reaction. In allopathy, there is no cure.

This is the one thing you should not do before sex

This is the one thing you should not do before sex

This is the one thing you should NOT do before sex

Follow this tip for better sexual health and an even better orgasm

Do you have the habit if peeing before or after sex?

A Recent study has shown that urinating before sex makes it more likely that you will catch a urinary tract infection.

That it was a common misconception that one should pee before having sex, as opposed to keeping it in and releasing it only after the deed.

It is much safer and better for your health to pee after sex. It is actually mandatory that you do this. So the best thing you can do for your sexual health is to hold you pee until when you are done as having sex after peeing is the number one cause of post-coital urinary tract infections, also known as honeymoon cystitis.

'Bacteria have tiny pilli that act as Velcro hooks, which allow them to attach themselves to the urethral lining,' says the doctor, adding that holding on helps clear a possible infection by helping dislodge it.

Finally, he also mentioned that this mostly applies to females rather than males, as opposed to the usual thinking.

Most women have actually reported that holding their pee before sex has led to even deeper orgasm.

Hello, if a woman who wants to have baby and has diabetes then she needs to control the blood sugar levels very strictly between 90 to 120 mg through out the pregnancy, which can be done only on insulin injection. Plus during pregnancy no other drug is to be given. As regards delaying the pregnancy the choice is entirely yours. If a man is diabetic and woman is normal then there is no problem.

We are not able to have intercourse due to immense pain experienced by my wife. Is it normal. Can my wife conceive without penetration?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Failing to do Foreplay can ruin mood or leave you unsatisfied. Sex without foreplay means you’re not taking your needs into consideration, because foreplay is much more important to women than to men. Foreplay is a set of emotionally and physically intimate acts between couple meant to create sexual arousal and desire for sexual activity. Vagina secretes natural lubricating solution which is secreted by bartholin's gland. Foreplay also helps in secreting natural lubricant which will improve sex life. Pregnancy can not occur if there is no penetration. Sufficient amount of semen needs to be deposited in the vagina to get pregnant.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are already 72. You are doing well with masturbation too. But your worries about sex is too much. Reduce the worries. Take interest in spiritual life. Sex is not everything. Please understand, take care.
