Hi lybrate-user better consult with proper symptoms. And just feeling bad is not sufficient to prescribe anything. You may test for CBC MP. Then consult with results.

Why are testis located outside the abdomen/body? What is their function? How does penis become erect and flaccid?

Why are testis located outside the abdomen/body? What is their function? How does penis become erect and flaccid?
Testis require 2degree less than the body temperature to function properly and hence they hang down in the scotum And there main function is to produce sperms for fertility And when ever there is sexual excitement there is sudden flow of blood to penis and it causes erection

Gut Health - 10 Best Foods For It!

Gut Health - 10 Best Foods For It!

There are a number of good bacteria that can help us and the more number of good gut bacteria we keep in our body, the better our digestion gets. Due to this, there is lesser chance that a specific food will trigger a harmful anti-inflammatory response.

  1. Prebiotic power food: A food that is prebiotic, contains ingredients like fiber that the intestine bacteria feast upon, creating byproducts that are fermented and hence, beneficial for the health. The most powerful prebiotic nourishments are almonds, asparagus, bananas, cereal, garlic, greens (particularly dandelion), kiwi, mushrooms, oats and onions.
  2. Probiotic power food: Rather than being cooked or eaten crisp, probiotic-rich food items are made in a moderate cooker or in a way that the microbes get a chance to ferment naturally. These food items provide fiber to our gut bacteria. Some of them include curd, kimchi, carrots, green beans, beet root, pickles and Greek olives, fermented soybeans and cultured dairy items.
  3. Kefir: Kefir, a fermented and somewhat carbonated dairy drink, can add to enhanced metabolic well-being by delivering good bacteria and furthermore helping in the inclusion of vitamins B12 and K.
  4. Whole oranges: Our gut bacteria ferment the solvent fiber found in oranges and one of the side effects is an unsaturated fat called butyrate. Butyrate is the favored fuel hotspot for the cells that line our GI tract and therefore energizes a healthy digestive system.
  5. Sourdough bread: This somewhat harsh, chewy bread is made with a lactic corrosive starter that contains parts of lactobacillus, a type of microscopic organisms that includes good bacteria in this bakery item. Sourdough might be the most healthy bread choice.
  6. Lentils: Lentils can add to our gut’s well-being in a couple of ways. Lentils contain solvent fiber and are additionally a source of prebiotics that feed our current valuable gut bacteria.
  7. Dark chocolate: The microorganisms inside our GI tract can productively ferment chocolate. These byproducts have been found to be beneficial both, for the well-being of the gut as well as a sound heart. Search for dark chocolate with no less than 70% cacao content.
  8. Pickles: Fermenting a cucumber into a pickle increases the benefits, loading the crunchy veggie with probiotics. However, not all pickles offer good bacteria. Search for those made with saline solution (salt and water) as opposed to vinegar.
  9. Sauerkraut: Another fermented sustenance is called sauerkraut. It is also known as fermented cabbage and acts as a vehicle to take healthy probiotic bacteria to the GI tract. Make sure to search for newly made sauerkraut (it will be in the refrigerated area) and not the canned ones.
  10. Butter: Butter is a source of butyrate in our diets that occurs naturally. Dishes that contain butyrate may likewise enhance intestinal boundary function and enhance general gut health. Search for butter from grass-fed cows.

Hi Doctor, I had protected sex with online gay frnd on 28th Oct 10. 30 pm. But after sex found rashes on the body and I'm scared about it. During sex I used condoms for penetration and did anal sex, however we had oral sex also, the gay frnd gave me oral sex. So my concern is whether I will be infected by HIV. I'm having sleepless nights and wanted to get PEP TREATMENT.

Dear friend, it is always better if you also tell about medicines taken or effort made. Wash your face with luke warm water 3_5 times daily. Don't use any soap or face wash. Increase your water intake. Avoid oily and spicy food as possible. Don't cut or erode the pimples, it will leave scars. Tell your progress after fifteen days to guide further.

No, all creams are not claiming the truth. Prior to starting any treatment this realisation is very necessary that we cannot make a stark change in complexion. But certain medicines would definitely help in improving complexion, make skin even toned and glowing. For the same you may follow these suggestions apply a sunscreen in morning with good uvb and uva protection like shadowz, ultraguard, ansolar etc use melawash face wash daily two times in a day. Apply it over face for four to five minutes then wash off apply a skin lightening cream like lumacip plus in night. Only a small amount had to be applied over face and do not rub the cream. Usually with in one to month desirable response is seen. I would also suggest you to take few sessions of skin lightening peels every two or three weeks. Usually four or five sessions are good enough.

How to Tackle Binge Eating

How to Tackle Binge Eating

To begin with, what is binge eating? Binge eating is a tenacious temptation in your brain that rears its head every time you are bored or overwhelmed. This temptation literally overpowers all other thought processes to make you reach out for food that you know you do not need. And then, guilt, disgust, frustration and heavy dieting starts! Sounds familiar? Well, you may just be a victim of binge eating. So what can you do about it? Plenty! Here's our list.

  • Emotional Hunger: Learn how to listen to your body. This is a way of bringing your mind and body in alignment by being aware and mindful. As soon as you feel a hunger pang, stop and think: is it emotional hunger or is it actually your snack or meal time? Once you learn to distinguish between the two, it is a matter of making a habit out of distracting yourself from emotional hunger by taking up a hobby or a pleasant activity that will also make your brain work in a different direction.
  • Focus on your Food: Usually, binge eating happens around unhealthy food that will give your taste buds a temporary kick. This kind of food is generally fatty, fried or sweet. So next time, focus on what you are eating. If you are eating a healthy, regular meal, then focus on the fact that you are doing something positive. This greatly defeats the cause of binge eating as you will chase the positive feeling rather than looking for temporary gratification which leads to more permanent guilt later.
  • Regular Meals: Eating your meals regularly at fixed times also dulls the temptation to binge. Regular meal times also set your biological clock and hunger ticking at the right times. If you avoid eating at meal times, then your mental hunger can get mixed up with a need for instant energy that your body requires due to a missed meal. This will make you reach out for unhealthy food in unhealthy portions.
  • Maintain a Food Diary: Keeping a food diary of everything you ate during the week and then going through it later will give you a lot of perspective on what you are doing wrong and how you can avoid the same.

Distancing yourself from wrong food and portions, and digging deeper into the emotions that trigger chronic binge eating may be answer you are looking for!

you are having tachycardia may be due to nervousness, stress,strain, and anxiety neurosis.. as you have checked up your heart and lung xray normal.your blood pressure is within nor!mal limits but you are having bradycardia means low pulce rate may be fight from beginning which some people have it or it could be by medicine like beta blocker for hypertension where the pulse rate low.smoking causes deposit of nicotine in the lung alveoli. which is very vital for respiratory system. so don't smoke it will be alright.
