After examining you your doctor may make a proper plan. Besides rigorous diet and exercise program should complement your medication.

5 Homeopathic Medicines to Increase Immunity

5 Homeopathic Medicines to Increase Immunity

The immune system within your body is what protects you from all the attacks of various microbes from the world outside. However, the immune system itself can face problems and can defend the body only so much. Thus it is wise to add some homeopathic medicines and help the immune system fight the possible intruders better.Let's have a look at some of them:

  1. Gelsemium:This medication is extracted from the vine Gelsemium sempervirens, and is known as a very effective remedy when you have flu like symptoms with the cold such as, exhaustion, body ache and fever.
  2. Arsenicum album:A very well known remedy for food poisoning as well as other digestive disorders, Arsenicum album can be very effective in treating a wide variety of stomach related illnesses caused by the reaction to foreign microbes.
  3. Oscillococcinum:This medication contains trace amounts of duck liver and heart and is known to be a good immune booster. Effective in the cases of cold and flu like symptoms, oscillococcinum can effectively treat fever with flu and other symptoms, although it may take a bit of time for it start acting. It is thus best to consult with your homeopathic doctor before starting a course.
  4. Allium cepa:If you have flu like symptoms with teary eyes and nasal congestion, Allium cepa is a very good remedy. You have to take a few doses before the symptoms start subsiding. One dose contains three to five pellets and you might have to take about two to three doses daily for a couple of days for the symptoms to subside.
  5. Combination medications:There are multiple medical combinations, which can help you boost your immunity as well. Consult your Homeopathic doctor to get the best combination for your specific condition. Some of these combinations are:
  • Calcarea Carbonica 30-1 dose, Phosphorus - 1 dose,Lycopodium 30-1 dose: This combination is very effective in treating sensitive colds where fever may or may not exist but causes extreme nasal blockages.
  • Lycopodium 30, Sabadilla 30: This combination is very effective when the cold and nasal blockages are due to pollen sensitivity and occur during the pollinating season. This can be used in a regular dosage to not only stop the symptoms but to also stop the allergy from happening in the first place.

Now a days my patience are getting loose and loose I do much hand practices. How can I control my daily sex.
Dried Dates And Nuts Dried dates offer good strength to the body and have the ability to increase sexual drive in humans. ? Mix a handful of dried date, pistachio nuts, almonds and quince seeds in equal proportions and then pound them into fine powder. ? Mix this powder in a glass of milk and consume it daily to see effective results. Practice through masturbation. If you are unable to perform well in the bedroom, then you should consider masturbating for practice. You are not all alone in this venture. Many people do it. So, do not be embarrassed to try it out. The way you masturbate could also have effects on how you perform in the bedroom. Therefore, do not rush the process.The way to do it successfully is to make it last, just like you would do when you are not alone in the bedroom. Pay attention to your partner?s needs and desires. When you pay special attention to the needs and the desires of your partner, you can make your sexual experience a pleasurable one. This can also help you slow down your performance in the bedroom. When you talk about this with your partner beforehand, you can easily avoid any awkwardness when you wish to slow down during a heated moment. You can also alternate the pace in order to take a break, so that it can help you focus on enhancing your sexual experience. Get some medical help. If you have an erectile dysfunction or some other problems such as Peyronie?s disease, then you might need to get some medical help.Do not hesitate to ask your doctor for help related to your performance in the bedroom. It is however never a bad decision to do some exercises in order to enhance your sexual performance with your partner apart from seeking medical help. ? Red hot chilli peppers ?Naturally hot and spicy, this food is known to boost both the libido of a person, as well as their sexual performance. ? Eggs ?Eggs can help balance the hormone levels of a person and improve the sexual performance of a person by decreasing their stress levels. Ayurvedic medicines ? Safed musli (small fennel/nigella seed) ? Shudh shilajit (asphaltum) For further assistance concern me privately.

Hello I am 19 years old boy. and suffering from addiction of masturbation Pls help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Hello
I am 19 years old boy. 
and suffering from addiction of masturbation
Pls help me.
Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage for whatever reasons it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Excessive of anything is bad same applies with masterbation. 2 things happen when one masterbate excessively 1. Premature ejaculation you can correlate when you started mastrrbation what was time and check current timing. You will find time to ejaculate might hv reduced significantly. Some people even ejaculate while rubbing in bed 2. Second problem is weak erection. Over a period you will feel lesser or weaker erections. One may feel shrinking penis due to this. If your erection and timing is still good then do not worry. Otherwise with guidance and ayurvedic medicines it can be cured.

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.
