I am taking the following Ayurvedic tablets as suggested by Ayurved Doctor for the past Five years. 1 tab of 'Cardimap' for BP and 1 tab of 'Sumenta' for stress. I am perfectly alright. I am aged 58 and maintaining normal BP. (i.e 120 -80). Shall I still continue the same? Is there any side effects.

While these are ayurveda medicines, hence no side effects. But it is not advisable to take any medicine for such a long period. Try controlling stress and BP with shirodhara, meditation etc. Check your diet. See if you are taking any salty, spicy or sour food items. Avoid those. Start having good quality cow ghee in diet. It would be helpful in both these conditions. In Sep/ october, try undergoing virechan karma at a panchakarma centre near you. It would be great for you.

I am 20 years old nd hve my cholesterol 252 is it normal for mee nd if it is not how can I reduce it.

B.A.M.S
Ayurveda,
I am 20 years old nd hve my cholesterol 252 is it normal for mee nd if it is not how can I reduce it.
No its not normal. Your overall cholesterol level is 252. Please check lipid profile. So you can know whether triglycerides is above the normal or ldl. To reduce cholesterol levels, you need to involve in both medications and yoga. When dealing with medications, considering your age I suggest traditional nature healing method -ayurveda nd naturopathy. Hearing your cholesterol levels of 252 at this age, exercise must be done daily for 30 minutes. You need to burn up atleast 800 cal of energy with intake of 1500 cal intake. So if your intake is more then burning up should be done wisely. Follow a regular diet too. All the best.

What is the symptoms of heart related problems? What is the first treatment at home.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
What is the symptoms of heart related problems? What is the first treatment at home.
You can save time during a cardiac emergency by planning ahead. Here are some ways to prepare for a heart attack and possibly increase your chances of survival. 1. Know the warning signs Not everyone who has a heart attack experiences the same symptoms, and some people have no symptoms at all. There are, however, some common ones you should know: Chest discomfort (pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain) Pain radiating to the arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach Shortness of breath Other symptoms, for example, sweating, nausea, vomiting or lightheadedness 2. Know what to do If you experience symptoms of a heart attack: Call 911 immediately. Because emergency personnel can begin treatment before you reach the hospital, transport to the hospital in an ambulance is the best way to receive prompt care. If calling 911 is not possible, have someone drive you to the hospital. Do not drive yourself to the hospital unless you have absolutely no other alternative. While waiting for help to arrive, chew a regular-dose aspirin to help prevent blood clots. Take with a glass of water. If you have been prescribed nitroglycerin tablets or spray for angina, take one to three doses to see whether symptoms are relieved. Lie down, breathe deeply and slowly, and try to stay calm. 3. Develop an action plan If you are at high risk for a heart attack, consider some of the following suggestions: Think what you would do if you had a heart attack in various situations, such as at home or while driving. Decide who would take care of any dependents. Make sure these backup people are willing to help out in an emergency. Write down a list of medications you are currently taking, medications you are allergic to, your doctors' phone numbers (both during and after office hours) and contact information for a friend or relative. Keep copies of this information in several places, such as at home, at work, in your car and in your wallet or purse. Give instructions to your family and friends. Tell them the warning signs of a heart attack and what to do if you experience these signs. Encourage them to take a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) class so that they can provide assistance if your breathing or heart stops before the ambulance arrives. Keep a bottle of aspirin in your home, car, office and toiletry bag. Always have your cell phone with you in case you need to call for help.

Flax seeds can be roasted and eaten about 1 spoonful after meals. Alternately you can make dry powder, mix some spices for taste and eat it with chapati as chutney. You can add powder to your sandwiches, curries, vegetable preparation etc as well. Daily consumption about 2 or 3 teaspoonfuls.

My cholesterol levels are alway below the normal level. Is it harmful? What food can be taken to improve the same?

My cholesterol levels are alway below the normal level. Is it harmful? What food can be taken to improve the same?
It's nice to maintain cholesterol levels below normal and they are not harmful, if you have less HDL then try to eat cod liver oil to boost it up as it should be higher.

I am 24 years old male. I am feeling light headed, and when I stand once my head got no sense over on my body. And I feel drowsy, and I can't go to crowdy places, if I went to crowdy places, I can't breathe properly, and I get too much sweat on my chest and on my body. I feel dying. Like in movie theatres and public places etc. And my heart beat also raised once. What should I do for this?

The best way is to visit nearest hospital and get yourself checked by ent surgeon for any vestibular problem and a cardiologist for any htn etc. There is possibility of cds also to be excluded by orthopaedician. If you go any vaidya, you may be treated for vatavyadhi. All these symptoms are covered under vatavyadhi.

IMPORTANT NUTRIENTS DURING WRIGHT LOSS: Potassium (Lower Blood Pressure): You can get it from milk, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, avocados, and legumes. It’s good for your blood pressure. Your muscles and nerves need it, too. Magnesium (Prevent Disease): Good source of magnesium, as are beans, peas, whole grains, and nuts (especially almonds). Put some or all of these foods on your plate, and you could do a lot for your health. Vitamin A (Healthy Eyes): Get this nutrient from orange and yellow plant foods, like sweet potatoes, carrots, and winter squash. It's also in spinach and broccoli. Vitamin A supports good vision, a healthy immune system, and tissue growth. Vitamin D (Strong Heart and Mind): Your bones, muscles, and nerve fibers all need D. The vitamin also helps keep your immune system in its prime. Your body can make vitamin D when you get enough sunshine, best to get it such as salmon, mackerel, and mushrooms exposed to ultraviolet light. There are small amounts in liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Milk, some brands of orange juice, and many cereals are fortified with it, too. Calcium (Strong Bones, Teeth, and muscle): There’s more to this mineral than healthy teeth and bones. It’s also key for your muscles, including your heart. It might even help you avoid getting high blood pressure. Dairy is an excellent source. Other foods that have it include canned salmon, kale, and broccoli. Remember, you need enough vitamin D for your body to absorb calcium. Vitamin C (Boost Immunity): This vitamin, found in many fruits and vegetables, has other benefits, too. It boosts the growth of bone and tissue. As an antioxidant, it might also help protect your cells from damage. Fiber: Get loads of benefits with fiber from whole grains, beans, and produce. A high fiber diet can help lower your cholesterol and keeps you regular. Plus, it might lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. And additional fiber is great if you want to lose a few pounds. It fills you up, so you eat less.

A spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday does boost the good cholesterol, this is heart friendly. No oils, no junk food either but lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take curds and boiled eggs plus proteins supplements.

Have faith in your doctor. Dextrocardia is just a congenital anomaly and not a heart disease but if pacemaker is fitted then there must be some reason.

Both are dangerous and life threatening. Reasons and factors leading to both are same. In stroke the blood vessels carrying blood to brain get blocked and in heart attack the blood vessels carrying blood to heart are blocked. Since factors are same, so is the prevention of the diseases.

hi sonam if I were your treating family doctor I would evaluate you first .. most commonly FOR on and off chest pain heart attack can be ruled out first. nextly it should move only gastritis . for that ask him to take tab.razo-d for two weeks twice a day before food. x ray obviously will be normal. it has nothing to do with your chest pain. . drink plenty of water of atleast 5 to 6 litres of water per day which is compulsory. hope I answered your question.don't hesitate to ask me any quiries if you have any . have a good day.
