There is no any medicine to decrease height. People of your age dream of long height nd u wants the reverse.You must be proud of your height nd one day you will be.Make your height your biggest asset and move forward in life.It is a Gods gift to you. I will recommend you to take a Homoeopathic tonic along with ALFAMALT ( SBL) drink 2 spoons twicedaily for 2 months nd report. One thing more that u r the first case in my 20 yrs experience who wants to decrease height.

Hello lybrate-user. Take a proper night sleep of 8 hours daily. Watch tv from at least a distance of 3m. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables juices and antioxidants daily. Do exercise or yoga for at least half an hour. Avoid stress. Apart from all these, there are 2 creams for these dark circles that give very good results. You need to apply one of these creams in day and one at night for 2 months continuously to get the best results.

Most women see this symptom. It is actually a good sign. It shows you are a healthy individual. There are many hormonal changes and fluctuations that take place before mentruation, eg. Stomach cramps, backache, irritation, mood swings, acne, breast pain etc. There is nothing that can be done about it. Just make sure you do not end up scratching it. You can put white toothpaste overnight if the pimple is painful.

What are the reasons for low bone density? and also what we should do to get rid of this problem?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Low bone density has many causes: it is common in females after menopause because of hormonal changes, in both sexes bone density decreases with increasing age because bone degradation is more as compared to formation. It is also secondary to many diseases like diabetes, thyroid disorders and many more smokers have low density, so there are various reasons for it. Medically it is advisable to keep yourself physically fit, so regular exercises and walks is important as it leads to good bone turnover and keeps bones healthy, adequate calcium and vitamin d in body is important for bone metabolism. Also diets rich in calcium like milk and milk products, fresh fruits and vegetables etc should be taken. Specific management depends upon your bone density score and identification of underlying cause. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Hello sir to decrease weight you need to focus on healthy eating habits and some workout like walking or stretching for 20-30 mins 5 days a week. Have small and regular meals like 3 main meals and 2-3 side meals. Include foods like green tea, lemon water, salad vegetables like onion, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, kakri, fruits like watermelon, melon, apple. Avoid sweets, fried foods and carbonated beverages. Thank you.

Dear , you are sleeping for 7 hours and that itself is an indication that you are not mentally stressed. You could be physically stressed and that is a good sign. You should not confuse between physical and mental stress. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Banana as superfood.

You could call the fruit kela (banana) nature’s convenience food. They are widely available, inexpensive, and found in their own natural packaging. You don’t need to wash them, and you can eat them on the go and at any time of day. From a baby’s first weaning food to a snack that seniors with chewing difficulties can easily manage, banana can be enjoyed throughout your life.

Banana vary in size. According to the US Department of Agriculture, one medium banana will give you just over 100 kcal and 3 grams of fibre (around 10 per cent of your daily fibre needs). They’re rich in potassium (13 per cent of your daily needs), which helps to maintain healthy blood pressure. Banana also provide vitamin C and are naturally free from fat, cholesterol and sodium.

Three things to do with Banana:
•Bake them: Simply slit open the skin with a knife and pierce the banana with sliced almonds. Bake until soft and the colour has brightened a little. Serve with low fat yogurt. Katcha kela, or plantain, is used like root vegetables in savoury dishes. You can bake them too – they take longer to bake, but can be enjoyed with a sprinkle of chili powder and lemon juice.
•Freeze them: Freeze slices of banana and use them as fruity ice cubes, a snack to replace sweets, or whizzed up in a blender with milk and strawberries for a refreshing smoothie.
•Spice them: Heat mustard seeds and cumin seeds in a pan with a little oil; add thick slices of banana and sauté with haldi and chili (add a little water to prevent it from sticking). Top this with freshly chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with chapatti. A tasty sweet and spicy dish!
