I have been told that I am putting on weight as my BMR is low. I have a sedentary job. Is there some medicine I can take so as to increase my BMR? Is it true that deficiency of Vitamin-D can lead to weight gain?

General Physician, Hyderabad
You go for brisk morning walk for 45 minutes daily, as your job is sedentary. This is the remedy for most of the medical conditions.This will automatically increase your BMR Sedentary job +high fatty diet+lack of exercise+hypothyroid may lead to obesity. Vitamin-d deficiency do not lead to over weight.

How is Paleo Diet Good and Bad For You

How is Paleo Diet Good and Bad For You

Paleo diet is one of those diets which have been gaining widespread popularity in the recent times. It has been touted by its supporters as the natural diet for human beings and also the diet that our ancestors used to consume. There is a lot of debate on its efficacy and it has its own set of advantages and disadvantages alike.

What exactly is a paleo diet?

The Paleo diet gets its name from the Paleolithic period of human civilization, thousands of years ago, where the availability and choices of food were varied and limited according to seasons. Most foods included lean meat, fruits, nuts, vegetables and were very different from the fast food, high sugar and saturated fat-based diet that humans are having now. This diet aims to go back to the basics to correct nutritional deficiencies as well as to try out to correct excesses of the modern diet.

Advantages of Paleo diet

  • Huge decrease in consumption of processed sugar
  • Normalization of blood pressure levels
  • Decreases in the level of bad cholesterol in the blood
  • Balance of protein intake due to limited and lean meat consumption
  • Increase in the consumption of vegetables and natural foods with less processed chemicals
  • Optimization of insulin within the body

Disadvantages of Paleo diet

  • Far too restrictive - Many believe that although it is a good diet, it loses out on the balance and becomes too restrictive with certain food groups being cut out completely, which may cause imbalances.
  • Excess of protein - Although Paleo diet cuts down on unhealthy fats, some of its ingredients may cause the consumption of too much protein which may not be good for health either.
  • Lacks of carbohydrates - Some believe that Paleo diet lacks carbohydrates and may not be a good source of energy. When working throughout the day, carbs provide energy but a low carb diet may cause energy-related problems.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Asthma!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Diploma in Naturopathy & Yoga - NDDY
Ayurveda, Ahmedabad
Ayurvedic Treatment For Asthma!

Asthma is a common disease, characterized by the inflammation of the airways. These airways are responsible for the passage of air and therefore their inflammation causes shortness of breath and extreme discomfort. Though different branches of medicines have tried in their own ways to deal with this problem, Ayurveda with its emphasis on natural remedies has emerged as a clear favorite. According to Ayurveda, it is the stomach that is the source of all chronic diseases. The science believes that as impurities accumulate in our system, diseases like asthma come to the fore.

The different ways by which Ayurveda treats asthma are:

  1. Maintaining a proper diet: Since stomach is identified as the source of most diseases, any attempt to treat them should begin from the stomach itself. Ayurveda believes that those foods, which are easy to digest, inevitably helps in relieving you from the bouts of asthma. The concept that operates behind this is that easily digestible food provides nutrients, which are further absorbed by the tissues. This helps in rebuilding the strong strength as well as keeps the stomach in a sound condition.
  2. Herbal oil massage: A daily massage with herbal oil has always proved to have an extremely soothing and a calming effect on your system. Ideally the massage should be performed before taking a bath as it increases the blood circulation and pacify the nervous system.
  3. Exercise: Ayurveda is perhaps the only branch of medicine that gives equal priority to medications as well as exercises. It is believed that stretching and those exercises that facilitate flexibility can markedly reduce bouts of asthma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

I have diabetes and sugar is very high from last couple of days. I also get hypoglycemia at times. What to do?
No details about actual blood sugar levels and medications being taken. High sugar at the same times Hypoglycemia meaning low sugar state suggests the management and treatment is not satisfactory. You should get your present blood sugar levels on Fasting, 1 1/2 hours after morning principal meal and before dinner. Show it to a Physician or a Diabetologist who is treating you. Always follow the instructions with discipline regarding Diet, timing, quantity, exercise and medications. You should approach the doctor frequently for follow up and sugar lvel monitoring. Physician will make necessary changes depending on situation.

Is castor oil good for hairs and skin and for reducing fat? Does it have any adverse affect on health?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Is castor oil good for hairs and skin and for reducing fat? Does it have any adverse affect on health?
Dear lybrateuser, -Castor oil is good for skin as it helps in prevention of sagging skin as it acts as a lubricant, as it prevents dry skin & helps to tighten loose skin, in combination with toning exercises & a well balanced diet & water intake, you can massage castor oil directly into the skin daily, adding lemon juice may also enhance its effects -heat the oil & allow it to cool for sometime, massage the warm oil in the scalp for healthy , shining hair -it has a strong laxative effect so an overdose can lead to dehydration, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, nausea when taken internally.

What is arthritis ? What is Rheumatology? Who are Rheumatologists ?

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine
Rheumatologist, Mumbai

Rheumatology is a field of medicine which deals with 'Auto-immune' diseases.

'Auto-immune' means diseases in which a part of your immune system, which usually protects you, gets automatically hyper activated and starts damaging your own organs.

All organs can be affected with rheumatic diseases - Joints (most common), spine, skin, muscle, eye, lungs, kidney, blood etc.

Because joints are most commonly involved, Rheumatologists are also called Joint / Arthritis.Specialists/ Immunologists. They are detectives who can detect more than 50 types of arthritis.

Rheumatic diseases can be very serious. They can affect children and young people also.

Timely treatment is necessary to prevent joint damage and even at times save lives.

(Rheumatologists are not orthosurgeons, they are physicians)

According to the traditional medical science, sex or masturbation may be done at intervals of 35 days or more than 35 days to prevent any adverse effects on the body. During these activities, many important minerals, hormones, and fluids responsible for the following are rapidly lost. [1] Masculinty ----------> masculine behaviour, body hair, body shine [2] Growth of the body ----------> increase in height and weight [3] Strength of the body ----------> density, stamina, and resistance to diseases Why you should give up this habit """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""... You are making your body dry, loose, weak, and impotent just for pleasure. You eat. You masturbate. It is like "a tank getting filled through one pipe and getting empty through another pipe".....! All the three-----masturbation, nocturnal emissions, and sex-----are very harmful to health. A man's semen is his masculinity, energy, and life. Each time semen is wasted, his masculinity, energy, and life decrease. This is simple Mathematics.....! Myself is a homoeopath and so consult me for proper management of how to control this habit and to overcome the harmful effect ot this menace.

Hello, having diabetes mellitus need not affect using of hair dye. Some persons may have allergy to a hair dye, if that happens then one has to stop. Allergy can cause a lot of different symptoms. So if you are allergic to it do not use.
