I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello , yes this is true certain foods can help in improving Alzheimer's disease.To reduce Alzheimer's risk, focus on healthy fats. Get plenty of omega-3 fats. Evidence suggests that the DHA found in omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia by reducing beta-amyloid plaques. Food sources include cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, and sardines.Here are few foods you should add into your diet that can help improve your mind:- Green leafy vegetables, Cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli, cauliflower,Beans and legumes.Whole grains, Berries and cherries,Pumpkin, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots and beets.Omega 3s. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and pecans,Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.Cinnamon, sage, tumeric and cumin.

You mean to say that one blood vessel is blocked (not nerve blocked?) that was the reason for heart attack recently? may be your doctor will suggest angioplasty which is different from open heart surgery. Recovery is good provided patients take care of health by eating right food, doing moderate exercises, keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Good luck.

Hi, most causes of sleeplessness are due to wrong habits and the good news is that it is very very easy to cure them 1. You have to first have a natural circadian rhythm a. Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time every day. B. And wake at the same time 2. Food a. Do not take coffee or tea after 6 pm b. Milk can be taken 3. Light a. Cover the windows and doors with curtains and avoid light b. Avoid watching tv lying in bed c. Avoid mobile phones / tablets 4. Exercise a. Walk for 45 minutes after dinner b. Take a bath after that hope you found the answer helpful. Try the above simple techniques for two weeks and let me know how much you have improved

INSOMNIA / SLEEPLESS-NESS , Getting the peace back!

Psychologist, Gurgaon
INSOMNIA / SLEEPLESS-NESS , Getting the peace back!

She is looking at the clock repeatedly, feeling more and more frustrated as the time passes as how it is getting late and her effort to sleep is going in vain.

Effort? can anyone put an effort for something which is a self programmed function of the body -mind complex?

Does one put an effort to breathe, make the heart beat or digest food?

Try doing this at home. Try putting a conscious effort to digest your food, be aware of it entering the food pipe and the stomach and then liver metabolizing it. You will end up with indigestion!

Effort is interfering instead with something which is automatic!

So your struggle to sleep is the biggest reason why you are unable to sleep!

Do not try to sleep

One should have courage to wait for the body to tune itself back during a temporary phase of insomnia due to some stressful/emotionally challenging situation.

One's continued stressful approach in life or excessive seeking for stimulation all the time may have finally resulted in the overworked nervous system being so stressed that it now has difficulty in tuning itself off.

There are people who have not slept at all in their entire lives, but there daily activities are not hampered at all, so

Get rid of these conditioning that shortage of sleep will have an ill effect on the body, though difficult, if you let go of this you will be happily surprised to know that this conditioning or belief was creating most of the bodily symptoms!

Chronic insomnia which has developed after a traumatic emotional experience may need a help from a professional like counselor or a hypnotherapist.

Sedatives decrease the brain activity by depressing the c. N. S, making one lethargic /drowsy with reduced mental efficiency and host of other side effects.

The induced sleep is more of non rem type (rem is supposed to be a deeper and moe refreshing phase)
Drug resistance develops soon and the dose gradually increases and so does the dependance and its withdrawal symptoms. And finally one must realize that they are not the cure
So it is better to take them as as a one-off thing, at times of acute distress or urgent need to sleep.

Some other tips which are of secondary help.

1. Do not keep a clock/watch with you in your bed room.
2. Avoid heavy dinner or supper, keep your digestion in check.
3. Do not immediately go to sleep after dinner.
4. Avoid caffeine based drinks esp coffee or if you must have it, take it before evening.
5. Try putting off gadgets like mobiles, t. V, games, magazines etc.

Lastly in a nutshell, do not get overworked if there is reduced or delayed sleep, that will act as a stressor which will prevents sleep, have the courage so as to not to sleep at all. Do not anticipate tomorrows after-effects. Surrender to the intelligence of your body, it will take care of it.

DM - Neurology

It is a kind of tremor disorder. Is there any other family member or blood relative having these kind of symptoms. You should check for thyroid function. A video of your hand shaking along with other detail information is required to give a full diagnosis. After that medications can be prescribed you to reduce your tremor.

Hot packs are very effective as they dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, delivering needed nutrients and oxygen to cells in the area being heated, aiding the removal of cell waste and promoting healing.

If used judiciously and cautiously it may be useful remedy, but as a routine one should not apply hot packs. Constant exposure to heat after many years is known to produce damage to tissue, skin ulcer and cancer (for example" kangri cancer").

World Autism Day; How To Recognize It Early

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi

The Indian government only recognized autism in 2001. Till the 1980s, there were reports that the disorder didn't exist in India. Experts worldwide have estimated that 2-6 children out of every 1000 have autism. In India, currently, 10 million people are suffering.
Autism is a complex developmental disability which starts presenting itself in the first 3 years of a child's life. It is a result of a neurological disorder which affects the normal brain functions of a child, thus eventually affecting their communication (verbal as well as non-verbal) and social skills.

Keep in mind that different children behave differently due to autism; no two children will ever have the exact symptoms. Some may experience mild symptoms while others may experience severe ones.

Social skills: an autistic child will interact in a very different way. If the symptoms in the child are mild, then such people are socially clumsy and awkward, may pass comments which seem offensive to others and may or may not be out of sync with other people of their age group. For those suffering from severe symptoms, they show absolutely no interest in people whatsoever.
Autistic children also find it extremely hard to understand the feelings and emotions of others.
Touch: children with autism have shown dislike to physical contact like being touched, cuddled, hugged etc. However, this is not true for everybody. Many will sometimes hug a parent or a friend, and enjoy that moment of contact greatly.

For children with autism, their social and communicative skills lag behind while their cognitive skills develop quickly enough. Similarly, their language skills might develop rapidly while their motor skills lag behind. For example, they may not be very good at sports, but their vocabulary would be the largest in their age group.

ANTIM CRUD 30, 5 pills ,thrice a day for 2 days. Limit intake of alcohol (if take) fats, a diet rich in meat and seafood, which can be high in purines that are more likely to increase uric acid level in the body. Alcohol, especially beer, can also bring on an attack of gout. Rest the affected joint until the attack eases and for 24 hours after the attack. Elevate painful joints. Use ice to reduce swelling. Keep yourself hydrated. Keep weight within range. As your height is 188 cm, your weight should be in between 85 to 90 kg. T All are temporary and preventive treatment for permanent cure we need a detail history and few investigations Homeopathic treatment is safe and effective with no side effects. If you want to know more or any medical treatment for GOUT, contact me again.
