There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 17 years so your number will not increase much now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

In previous some days acne produce on my face .I am keep cleaning my face regularly but I don't no why it appeared?
1)By perusal of about 200 health related questions, asked by young people it is revealed that there are three major concerns for them. Namely a) Getting rid of Pimples b) Getting rid of Obesity c) Search of fuller and muscular body. 2)Most questioners seek treatment of Pimples in some creams, or lotions. They are informed that pimples are caused by oily skin and closed pores. So reduced oil on skin and opening pores will cure them. 3)But how erroneous is this approach is demonstrated by failure of the treatment based upon the above theory. The funny part is when nothing can prevent the recurrence the blame is placed upon hormonal imbalance for which there is no definite cure. 4)What is forgotten is that the skin is also a part of the body and therefore if skin is afflicted in any way, it must be a manifestation of the problem of the entire body and not just skin. 5)Once this principle is accepted the emphasis is shifted to whole body and not to just the skin. 6)And then the line of treatment becomes logical and also successful. 7)Almost all cases of pimples are taken care of by the health tips of this month’s News Letter. By adopting this line of treatment, not only the pimples will go, general health will also improve. HEALTH TIPS: Line of treatment for pimples: 1)Start with washing the face 5-6 times a day. 2)Take an enema for first 6 six days. 3)Eat only fruits for these six days. Still better course will be to sustain on plain water for 2-3 days and then start on fruit diet. 4)Apply steam on the face once every day for first six days and then twice a week. The method for applying steam is as follows: 5)Take a vessel (Topia or Pateela or Bhagona) of about 2 kg capacity. Fill it half by water and put it to full boil. When water starts to boil cover the vessel and put it on a table. The patient sits on a chair and covers his head, shoulders, upper back and the vessel by a thick multi folded bed cover. It should be large enough to not to let the steam escape from sides. Open the vessel cover a little at a time, keeping the face close to the vessel. Inhale steam through mouth and exhale through nose. Continue opening the vessel a little more at a time till it is completely open and the flow of steam stops. Wash the face with cold water. 6)Come back to regular food but completely avoid spicy, fried foods. Eat lots of salads (not less than 200 gms with every meal) and fruits. Avoid fried foods, sugar and maida. 7)If you continue this way not only the pimples will go, the general health will also improve. The patients will experience reduced bouts of cold and cough. Sinus congestion will also be removed. 8)The obesity matter is already discussed many times in the past. The search for fuller muscular body will be taken up later. CAUTION: 1)Dengue and rains have become synonymous in India. It stops only when the winter sets in. 2)The Municipal Authorities and Government health departments try to stop it by killing of mosquitoes and by distributing vaccines etc. 3)Whatever they do neither the reach can be wide enough nor the effectiveness is assured. 4)More over many people believe that the whole exercise is just futile. In recent years many virus are stopped but all of them are replaced by new ones, which are more potent and more dangerous. 5)This vicious circle is continuing unabated. 6)In fact all efforts should be towards improved hygiene and improvement of immunity levels. 7)When will the governments understand it and take proper steps, no one knows, but as an individual, everyone can do a lot to achieve better immunity levels. 8)Do not take antibiotics without proper advice. Once started do not quit them without completing the course. 9)Follow the advice from this NL for Navaratry routine, twice every year. It will surely improve immunity levels. 10)Rains call for Chai Pakoras. Please avoid them. These are doing no good to anyone. Eat light and exercise regularly. MONTH’S RECEPIE: Water melon juice: Prepare watermelon juice in a juicer which does not separate the pulp but converts it into semi liquid so that it can be taken as a part of juice. Cut some watermelon in small pieces of less than half inch. Mix with juice. Have some mint leaves, duly washed and cut. Pour the juice in glasses and garnish with mint leaves. Serve chilled. This delicious juice is a mine full of antioxidants, nutrients and fiber. If desired, one can also add some lemon juice and salt.

Hello Biotin is a B complex vitamin .Biotin is essential to our health to help metabolize amino and fatty acid in our body, so we can efficiently use it for energy. Poor nutrition is one of the causes of biotin deficiency, and the earliest sign of biotin deficiency is hair breakage, hair loss, brittle nails, and dry skin.Biotin is a dietary supplement and not a wonder medicine that can miraculously give you healthy and shiny hair.  Biotin may help with hair growth, but you also have to take care of your hair. Adopting a regular hair regimen, avoiding harsh chemicals and heat treatments FDA recommends 35 mcg of Biotin for 19 years and older, which is fulfilled through normal diet.

Fight Cellulite, The Right Way!

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition (Delhi University)
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Panipat
Cellulite is something that affects women leading to accumulation of fat. But there are ways to manage it right!

We have often heard women complaining of skin like an orange peel, dimpled skin, all these are just synonyms of the word cellulite. Mostly women are affected by cellulite and this can happen at any stage after puberty starts settling in.

So what exactly is cellulite? Is it the same as fat or different from it?

Cellulite is a kind of fat tissue in the sub-cutaneous layer of the skin. When our body system works effectively, all the waste material and toxins are removed, as a result of which we get smooth curves, if the waste material gets trapped in the skin, the connective tissue become rigid, thereby giving a dimpled effect.

Mostly women are prone to cellulite which tends to get stored in the hips, thighs, stomach, lower back etc.

5 ways to fight cellulite the right way!

1. Healthy and balanced diet can help reduce cellulite, to reduce cellulite we will have to detoxify our body, during detoxification cut out caffeine, do not eat extra salt or fat, drink lot of water. Eat things like soya, blueberries and nuts. Ensure that there is a sufficient intake of nutrients like vitamin c, b complex and essential fatty acids. Onions are good for reducing cellulite. Onions acts as like a natural diuretic and will release the excess water from the skin cells. Reduce alcohol, fried foods, spices and smoking.
2. Cellulite can be mobilised with the right exercise. Exercising improves blood circulation and helps in getting rid of the toxins from our body effectively. Special exercises like walking, cycling, climbing stairs & yoga help improve muscles in the thighs. Muscles will stretch the skin and smoothen the dimples appearance.
3. Right breathing exercises also help to remove toxins from the body. Proper breathing is a must for better oxygenation of blood, which in turn makes the lungs work more efficiently to throw the waste out.
4. A good anti cellulite massage is also helpful to some extent. Massaging the areas that have cellulite will increase circulation and break the fat up. Use of aromatherapy oils like sage and juniper help in cellulite reduction.
5. Special body wraps with ingredients like green tea, warm ground coffee and seaweed are very helpful in treating cellulite. Various anti cellulite oils are available which can be used.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal (hormonal) problems, metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia. Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision. It's a safe and near scarless procedure. Consult a plastic surgeon for that.
