Hi doctor. I'm 73 kgs. Want to loose weight. Taking protein shakes. Is it good or not. Feeling sleepy after lunch. Some times sleeping for 1 hr. Is banana helps to loose weight or not. Thanks.

Hi. Divide your meals into 5-6 meals a day (have small and frequent meals ). Replacing meals with protein shakes may help you reduce your daily calories, can help you to lose weight. But eventually you will need to start eating food again, which may cause excess weight to return if you don't choose wisely. And if you rely too heavily on protein shakes to replace regular meals, you'll miss out on the nutritional benefits of whole foods. Make lean meats and egg whites a source for your protein intake. Add colours in your diet such as fruits vegetables. Choose whole grains instead of refined. Sleeping immediately after a meal is not good. Bananas helps you to loose weight but make sure you eat fully ripened yellow bananas only.

What you are having are symptoms of early pregnancy. Till 3.5 - 4 months, some patients experience symptoms like headache giddiness altered taste in mouth retrosternal burning mild breast pain burning in upper part of tummy (above umbilicus) mild pain occasionally on lower tummy frequent passage of urine gaseous distension of tummy infrequent motions weakness feeling of having no energy in body, limbs feel tired feel sleepy all the time feel listless, not interested in any work, nausea vomiting feel like body has fever, but temperature on measurement is normal feel as if you are in convalescent eprios all these symptoms are normal, and are due to the body's response to the hormones released for pregnancy growth. The major symptom is due to hyperacidity, which causes most of the symptoms. This can be tackled with dietary alterations: from getting up to sleeping at night, eat every 2-3 hourly eat dry food stuffs (puffed rice, biscuits, chapati sabji, papad, peanuts, sprouted beans, khakhara, dhokla, idli, dosa, candy, chikki, sweetmeats from mithaiwala, namkeen items.) eat just a small wati full every 2-3 hours try to eat food stuff thats dry. So that it does not come out in vomits eat food stuff at normal temperature, as hot foods have strong aromas eat foods with different tastes to prevent boredom eat food stuff that is ready made, so the energy drained in making it avoided even if you vomit after every food intake, keep on eating, as food neutralizes the acid produced in the stomach avoid foods with excess chilli, spices, masala and oil avoid eating street food esp panipuri, samosas, puris etc even if a patient vomits she always retains a good part of the eaten food in her tummy. So frequent eating will fulfill her daily requirements if you have gone to a gynec for a check up she would have prescribed you some anti emetic tablets, take these anti-emetics meant for pregnant women if plain anti-emetics are not working, you can add to them, some over the counter medicines to tackle acidity like syrups and tablets to reduce acidity as acidity is main cause of vomiting frequent eating will also keep glucose levels high, and help in making you feel better avoid- powders which are put in water to make" energy drinks" like glucon-c, d etc which are finally chemicals. While all kinds of fruits can be consumed in pregnancy, except papaya, pineapple, it is best is to take fruits which are rich in water (watermelon, oranges, sweet lime) keep yourself occupied by involving yourself in activities like reading, listening to music, learning some art like knittting, sewing etc.

I have hair loss & hair fall problem, how I can get re-again hair, can you help me?
Hair growth is now a days a top most priority for everyone. Be it of any age group people, everyone wants to have a good volume of hair. Fruits are always been considered as a good source of vitamins and fibre. They help by making scalp and hair roots grow strong. This ensures a proper blood circulation in the scalp that in turn helps in hair growth! Below are few fruits name which are not only beneficial to our health but are also good for hair growth. Gooseberry / Amala: • Adding amla paste or oil in our hair packs conditions the hair to a great extent preventing them from split ends. Dried amla paste helps in opening of the pores helping the scalp to produce natural oils which not only encourages hair re-growth gives extra shine to the hairs. Coconut: Coconut is useful in many ways for our hair and skin. The fats found in coconut, give moisture in hair and condition our hair. Coconut oil is widely used for good hair and scalp massage as it gives relations and also opens up the pores. Even many people use coconut water to wash their hairs. Pomegranates: • Drinking pomegranate juice helps in strengthening hair follicles. Hair loss can be also prevented by using pomegranate extract. Pomegranate seed oil is used in many spas for hair massage. It stimulates hair growth making hair stronger, thick and healthy. • One of the other important benefits of pomogranates is that it helps in combating other hair loss problems such as dandruff, itching etc. Citrus fruits like oranges, lemon: • One of the essential components for hair growth is Vitamin C. Having vitamin C deficiency can make our hairs weak, lustreless, and prone to breakage. It helps in preventing premature greying of the hairs. • Juices of vitamin C-containing fruits help in controlling dandruff. We know how dried peel paste is useful for our skin but very few of us know that dries peel paste can be used in our hair pack too. It cleanses the scalp and works as an excellent conditioner giving the hairs volume and shine. • Some fruits like passion fruit, guava, black currants, bread fruit and kiwi help in promoting hair thickness as well as growth. Bananas: • Bananas contain potassium, so when banana paste is applied to the hairs it softens the hair. Banana paste is used in many hair packs for hair growth, give shine and manageability. • Bananas contain natural oils that help in soften hairs and protect the natural elasticity of the hairs by preventing split ends and breakage. Strawberries: • Strawberry is a good source of important minerals such as copper, manganese and magnesium. These minerals produce complexes that can inhibit fungal growth on the scalp. Strawberry also protects the scalp cell membranes from other problems which generally grow when we come in contact with water. Apple : • Paste of the leaves and skin of green apple works wonders to cure dandruff. This paste can be used as a shampoo too. • Applying green apple juice is also a simple home-made remedy for strengthening the locks, enhancing hair growth and preventing hair loss. • Apple also balances the hair and scalp pH, treating dandruff and hair loss problems. Avocado: • Avocado contain lots of vital nutrients including important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B, C, E, K and iron, copper, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus which is very useful in keeping our skin and hair hydrated. Avocado oil adds shine and lustre to hair as well as prevents hair loss and promoting hair growth. • Simple avocado paste when applied in hair conditions the hair too. Papaya: • Papaya is rich in nutrients which help preventing baldness, and boosts hair-growth giving strengthen to the hairs. Papaya works greatly also for treating and controlling dandruff. Papaya leaf extracts when used as a conditioner on dull, unruly and lifeless hair, it results into thick, strong, shiny and healthy hair.

6 Most Common Habits That Are Actually Killing You!

6 Most Common Habits That Are Actually Killing You!

As an adult, you would be easily able to identify bad habits that may cause health issues. But what about the habits those appear to be innocent on the surface? Did you know that they can lead you to the grave early? It is not always possible to keep up with all that’s good for health particularly when the medical advice tends to alter. So, here is a list of some bad habits that are characteristics of modern life.

  1. Eating at the desk: You will be stunned to know that your work station comprises of a greater number of germs when compared to the toilet seat! This makes it the worst choice for dining. Besides these germs and bacteria, spending the time of eating at the working desk can lengthen the time during which you are physically inactive.
  2. Cleaning your teeth with toothpick: Many of us have the habit of removing food particles from the teeth with the help of toothpicks. But toothpicks may damage the teeth while making you susceptible to gum problems and other dental ailments.
  3. Cleaning your ears too much: Cleaning the ears rapidly and randomly can tear off the delicate ear drums and could even prove fatal if you do it wrong. Hence it is good to stay away from excessive cleaning of the ears.
  4. Plucking the hair in the nose: The habit of plucking those tiny, unwanted short hairs in the nose may be bad for you. When you pluck the hair of the nose, you also disrupt and tear away the skin around the hair. This lets the bacteria to find the way to your body which could pave the way for a host of health challenges.
  5. Watching television for long hours: Studies have reported that watching television for a long time can actually kill you. Your habit of watching back-to-back episodes of any television series can be detrimental to your health. This would increase your risk of dying from a blood clot in the lungs. This means if you watch television for about 5 hours of video every day can increase your risk of dying about 5 years earlier.
  6. Eating while watching TV: Another bad habit is snacking while watching tv since nutritionists say that watching television while eating can pose a serious risk to your health. This is also because people tend to munch on high-calorie foods while watching tv and it has numerous unwanted side effects. This would cause an excessive weight gain as people tend to get distracted while viewing television without being aware of what they have eaten.

Be careful about such habits and get rid of them as early as possible to lead a happy and healthy life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Dislocated Knee Cap - How It Can Be Prevented?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Dislocated Knee Cap - How It Can Be Prevented?

Patella dislocation is mostly found among women and people associated with the high impact sport. It refers to a condition where the kneecap gets completely displaced from its normal location. Lateral dislocation is more common that involves the damage of ligaments and muscles. An immediate response to a patellar injury should be to cut down inflammation, stop engaging the patellofemoral joint and to relieve pain. One of the best ways to do it is to follow the RICE mechanism- rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Once this is done, one should seek urgent medical attention.

Symptoms of patellar dislocation:

  1. Immediate swelling of the knee area
  2. Extreme tenderness around the area of the knee cap
  3. Instability while bearing weight
  4. Acute pain near the knee cap area
  5. Quadriceps muscle weakness
  6. Redness to the affected area and instant fever as a result of the pain
  7. Warm feeling of the affected area

Immediate Treatment

If patella remains dislocated, consult to doctor immediately. To put the kneecap back in place, doctor may give you pain medication to relax his or her knee muscles, and then gently apply pressure to move the kneecap back into place. This process is called a "reduction."

Nonsurgical Treatment

  • Immobilization. You may wear a brace for 4 to 6 weeks. This stabilizes the knee while it heals.

  • Weightbearing. Because putting weight on the knee may cause pain and slow the healing process, you may require crutches for the first week or two after the injury.

  • Physical therapy. Once the knee has started to heal, you doctor will require physical therapy to help you to regain normal motion. Specific exercises will strengthen the thigh muscles holding the knee joint in place. Your commitment to the exercise program is important for a successful recovery. Typically, patient return to activity 3 to 6 weeks after the injury.

Because a dislocation often damages knee tissue, the patella often remains looser, or more unstable, than it was before the injury. As a result, the patella may dislocate again. Recurrences also are common if the dislocation was caused by an irregularity in the knee structure. Ongoing exercises, such as cycling, can strengthen quadriceps muscles in the thigh and prevent future patellar dislocations.

Surgical Treatment

If your patella dislocates multiple times, or continues to be unstable despite therapy and bracing, surgery may be recommended to correct the problem. The type of surgery will depend on the cause of the unstable kneecap. Surgical treatments often involve reconstructing the ligaments that hold the patella in place.

Rehabilitation:
Post-surgical knee rehabilitation is a key step to a full recovery from patellar dislocation. The process of rehabilitation not only rebuilds the muscles but negate the chances of future dislocation. It also focuses on strength, endurance, power and full motion of the knee. The balance and agility of the limb are also focused upon.

How to prevent patellar dislocation?
Since the risk of recurrence of a patella dislocation is 50 percent, prevention procedures should be at the top of the list.

  1. Refraining from high impact sports.
  2. Wearing a knee cap
  3. Continuing the daily exercise recommended by the physiotherapist to ensure non recurrence of the patella dislocation. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

My scalp has become red at the centre and there is lot of hairfall ehat should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
My scalp has become red at the centre and there is lot of hairfall ehat should I do?
Hi. If your scalp is red, better show to a dermatologist and the diagnosis can be something else! It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.
