It is very much curable. She should eat small meals frequently. Never skip breakfast. Have early dinner. Dinner being lightest. Avoid deep fried and spicy. Avoid antibiotics and heavy medicines. Drink plenty of fluids. Have a cup of milk preferably cold twice a day. And most important trigger is stress so she should do yoga and pranayam to take care of it. Do a course in homeopathy as results are excellent and cure is permanent.

Dear lybrateuser, - You can consume milk as it contains protein, carbs & calcium but preferably take low fat milk which has 1-2 % fat as full fat milk has more saturated fats & hence more calories which can increase your weight & cholesterol level in blood.

I always suffer from gas bloating problem. It worsens when I take oily foods. My appetite also not good.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Gurgaon
I always suffer from gas bloating problem. It worsens when I take oily foods. My appetite also not good.
It may be due to slow peristalsis, Food allergies or minimal Intestinal obstruction due to some infection/infestation/Inflammation, You may send me more information about your problem for better diagnosis Until then you can take Homeopathic Treatment. If you have Faith in Homeopathy, You can use following Homeopathic Medicines: (1) Kalmegh Q (2) Chelidonium Q Avoid fat fried food, take small meals at short intervals, preferably early breakfast and light dinner. Performing Kapalbhati Pranayama and Bhastrika Pranayama with Neoli-Kriya in mornings after passing stools will certainly help you until it is cured.

How can I detect dengue and what are the precautions of it and Treatment of it ?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
How can I detect dengue and what are the precautions of it and Treatment of it ?
The principal symptoms of dengue are: -high fever and at least two of the following: -severe headache -severe eye pain (behind eyes) -joint pain -muscle and/or bone pain -rash -mild bleeding manifestation (nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: -severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting -red spots or patches on the skin -bleeding from nose or gums -vomiting blood -black, tarry stools -drowsiness or irritability -pale, cold, or clammy skin -difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors. -When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

Please try thisgive pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

When you get the flu, a sudden high fever is totally normal, and it can get as high as 104° F and last for three to four days. The best thing you can do is to rest and drink plenty of fluids, since a fever can cause you to become dehydrated. Don't attempt to cool off your skin with cold packs since they'll just make you shiver, which will end up raising your body temperature. Homoeopathic medicines will give him a quick and permanent relief, you have to give his detailed symptoms to find correct remedy for him.

Im 18 years of age. The size of my penis when get erected is about 12-13 cm in length and small in circumference also. Will my penis size increase in terms of length and circumference both? At what age penis size grow faster? What is the age when penis stop growing? What is the impact of penis size on sex life.

The average size of the erect/aroused penis ranges from 3.2 inches to 6.5 inches, but even lower sizes don't make a difference to the ability to have sex, please one's partner or have children. The aroused female vagina only extends between 3 to 4 inches, and even here, the most sensitive parts are towards the outside. Girth is a little more important, but most important is how you use it. So please focus on the person you are with and make sure your partner enjoys the experience - there is really nothing more important than that in sex. Anyone who tells you that size is important doesn't really know what he is talking about. The only way to increase penis size or girth (thickness) is through surgery, but this is painful and risky. None of the medicines marketed to increase penis size work and they are a waste of money.

Lybrate user any medication taken out of limit is going to harm your body. When you say I don't hv much time left. Is means that you hv lost hope. Start with some light physical activity. Do deep breathing excersise as it will b helpful for both your lungs and brain. Be positive in life. Choose healthy food.
