Try Kegel exercises This is a great way of strengthening your pelvic muscles and gain strength for sex. It is like going to the gym, but for sex. Let me tell you how to do Kegel exercises. You have to practice it first. When you urinate, try to stop the flow of urine without your hands, just by contracting your muscles. The muscles you contract then are the pelvic muscles that are used during sex. Do not do this while urinating again, you can do this while you are sitting or standing, while working or doing other things. Once you know how to contract them try doing this a few times every day and this will strengthen them. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day. You should see results in a few week.

For many people struggling with addiction, the biggest and toughest step toward recovery is the very first one: deciding to make a change. It’s normal to feel conflicted about giving up your drug of choice, even when you realize it’s causing problems in your life. Change is never easy—and committing to sobriety involves changing many things, including: • the way you deal with stress • who you allow in your life • what you do in your free time • how you think about yourself You may wonder if you’re really ready for all that change or if you have what it takes to quit. It’s okay if you’re torn. Recovering from addiction is a long process, one that requires time, commitment, motivation, and support. As you contemplate your situation, the following tips can help you make the decision. Thinking about change • Keep track of your drug use, including when and how much you use. This will give you a better sense of the role the addiction is playing in your life. • List the pros and cons of quitting, as well as the costs and benefits of continuing your drug abuse. • Consider the things that are important to you, such as your partner, your kids, your career, or your health. How does your drug use affect those things? • Talk it over with someone you trust. Ask the person how he or she feels about your drug use. • Ask yourself if there’s anything preventing you from changing. What are some things that could help you make the change? Preparing for change: 5 key steps to addiction recovery 1. Remind yourself of the reasons you want to change. 2. Think about your past attempts at quitting, if any. What worked? What didn’t? 3. Set specific, measurable goals, such as a quit date or limits on your drug use. 4. Remove reminders of your addiction from your home and workplace. 5. Tell friends and family that you’re quitting and ask for their support. Once you’ve made the decision to challenge your drug addiction, it’s time to explore your treatment choices. As you consider the options, keep the following in mind: • There’s no magic bullet or single treatment that works for everyone. When considering a program, remember that everyone’s needs are different. Drug addiction treatment should be customized to your unique problems and situation. It’s important that you find a program that feels right. • Treatment should address more than just your drug abuse. Addiction affects your whole life, including relationships, career, health, and psychological well-being. Treatment success depends on developing a new way of living and addressing the reasons why you turned to drugs in the first place. It may have been because of an inability to manage stress, in which case you’ll need to find healthy ways to handle stressful situations. • Commitment and follow-through are key. Drug addiction treatment is not a quick and easy process. In general, the longer and more intense the drug use, the longer and more intense the treatment you’ll need. But regardless of the treatment program’s length in weeks or months, long-term follow-up care is crucial to recovery. • There are many places to turn for help. Not everybody requires medically supervised detox or an extended stint in rehab. The level of care you need depends on your age, drug use history, and other medical or psychiatric conditions • As you seek help for drug addiction, it’s also important to get treatment for any other medical or psychological issues you’re experiencing. Your best chance of recovery is through integrated treatment for both the substance abuse problem and the mental health problem. This means getting combined mental health and addiction treatment Don’t try to go it alone. Whatever treatment approach you choose, having a solid support system is essential. The more positive influences you have in your life, the better your chances for recovery. Recovering from drug addiction isn’t easy, but with people you can turn to for encouragement, guidance, and a listening ear, it’s a little less tough. • Lean on close friends and family – Having the support of friends and family members is an invaluable asset in recovery. If you’re reluctant to turn to your loved ones because you’ve let them down before, consider going to couples counseling or family therapy. • Build a sober social network – If your previous social life revolved around drugs, you may need to make some new connections. It’s important to have sober friends who will support your recovery. Try taking a class, joining a church or a civic group, volunteering, or attending events in your community. • Consider moving in to a sober living home – Sober living homes provide a safe, supportive place to live while you’re recovering from drug addiction. They are a good option if you don’t have a stable home or a drug-free living environment to go to. • Make meetings a priority – Join a recovery support group and attend meetings regularly. Spending time with people who understand exactly what you’re going through can be very healing. You can also benefit from the shared experiences of the group members and learn what others have done to stay sober. Even once you’ve recovered from drug addiction, you’ll still have to face the problems that led to your drug problems in the first place. Did you start using drugs to numb painful emotions, calm yourself down after an argument, unwind after a bad day, or forget about your problems? After you become sober, the negative feelings that you used to dampen with drugs will resurface. For treatment to be successful, and to remain sober in the long term, you’ll need to resolve these underlying issues as well. Conditions such as stress, loneliness, frustration, anger, shame, anxiety, and hopelessness will remain in your life even when you’re no longer using drugs to cover them up. But you will be in a healthier position to finally address them and seek the help you need. Drug abuse often stems from misguided attempts to manage stress. Many people turn to alcohol or recreational drugs to unwind and relax after a stressful day, or to cover up painful memories and emotions that cause us to feel stressed and out of balance. But there are healthier ways to keep your stress level in check, including exercising, meditating, using sensory strategies to relax, practicing simple breathing exercises, and challenging self-defeating thoughts. You may feel like doing drugs is the only way to handle unpleasant feelings, but it’s not. You can learn to get through difficulties without falling back on your addiction. Different quick stress relief strategies work better for some people than others. The key is to find the one that works best for you, and helps you calm down when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed. When you’re confident in your ability to quickly de-stress, facing strong feelings isn’t as intimidating or overwhelming. • Exercise releases endorphins, relieves stress, and promotes emotional well-being. Try running in place, jumping rope, or walking around the block. • Step outside and savor the warm sun and fresh air. Enjoy a beautiful view or landscape. • Yoga and meditation are excellent ways to bust stress and find balance. • Play with your dog or cat, enjoying the relaxing touch of your pet’s fur. • Put on some calming music. • Light a scented candle. • Breathe in the scent of fresh flowers or coffee beans, or savor a scent that reminds you of a favorite vacation, such as sunscreen or a seashell. • Close your eyes and picture a peaceful place, such as a sandy beach. Or think of a fond memory, such as your child’s first steps or time spent with friends. • Make yourself a steaming cup of tea. • Look at favorite family photos. • Give yourself a neck or shoulder massage. • Soak in a hot bath or shower. While getting sober from drugs is an important first step, it’s only the beginning of the recovery process. Once sober, the brain needs time to recover and rebuild connections that have changed while addicted. During this time, drug cravings can be intense. You can support your continued sobriety by making a conscious effort to avoid people, places, and situations that trigger the urge to use: • Make a break from old drug buddies. Don’t make the mistake of hanging out with old friends who are still doing drugs. Surround yourself with people who support your sobriety, not those who tempt you to slip back into old, destructive habits. • Avoid bars and clubs, even if you don’t have a problem with alcohol. Drinking lowers inhibitions and impairs judgment, which can easily lead to relapse. Drugs are often readily available and the temptation to use can be overpowering. Also avoid any other environments and situations that you associate with drug use. • Be up front about your history of drug use when seeking medical treatment. If you need a medical or dental procedure done, be up front about your history and find a provider who will work with you in either prescribing alternatives or the absolute minimum medication necessary. You should never feel ashamed or humiliated about previous drug use or be denied medication for pain; if that happens, find another provider. • Use caution with prescription drugs. Stay away from prescription drugs with the potential for abuse or use only when necessary and with extreme caution. Drugs with a high abuse potential include painkillers, sleeping pills, and anti-anxiety medication. Sometimes craving cannot be avoided, and it is necessary to find a way to cope: • Get involved in some distracting activity. Reading, a hobby, going to a movie, exercising (jogging, biking) are good examples of distracting activities. Once you get interested in something else, you’ll find the urges go away. Another effective response to a drug craving is eating (but be careful what you eat, as eating junk will only add stress and inches to your waistline). • Talk it through. Talk to friends or family members about craving when it occurs. Talking about cravings and urges can be very helpful in pinpointing the source of the craving. Also, talking about craving often helps to discharge and relieve the feeling and will help restore honesty in your relationship. Craving is nothing to feel bad about. • Urge surf. Many people try to cope with their urges by gritting their teeth and toughing it out. But some are just too strong to ignore. When this happens, it can be useful to stay with the urge until it passes. This technique is called urge surfing. Imagine yourself as a surfer who will ride the wave of your drug craving, staying on top of it until it crests, breaks, and turns into less powerful, foamy surf. • Challenge and change your thoughts. When experiencing a craving, many people have a tendency to remember only the positive effects of the drug and forget the negative consequences. Therefore, you may find it helpful to remind yourself that you really won’t feel better if you use and that you stand to lose a lot. Sometimes it is helpful to have these benefits and consequences listed on a small card that you keep with you. You can support your drug treatment and protect yourself from relapse by having activities and interests that provide meaning to your life. It’s important to be involved in things that you enjoy and make you feel needed. When your life is filled with rewarding activities and a sense of purpose, your addiction will lose its appeal. • Pick up a new hobby. Do things that challenge your creativity and spark your imagination—something you’ve always wanted to try. • Adopt a pet. Yes, pets are a responsibility, but caring for an animal makes you feel loved and needed. Pets can also get you out of the house for exercise. • Get involved in your community. Replace your addiction with drug-free groups and activities. Volunteer, become active in your church or faith community, or join a local club or neighborhood group. • Set meaningful goals. Having goals to work toward and something to look forward to can be powerful antidotes to drug addiction. It doesn’t matter what the goals are—whether they involve your career, your personal life, or your health—just that they are important to you. • Look after your health. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, and healthy eating habits help you keep your energy levels up and your stress levels down. When you feel good, drugs are much less of a temptation. The more you can do to stay healthy, the easier it will be to stay sober. Relapse is a common part of the recovery process from drug addiction. While relapse is understandably frustrating and discouraging, it can also be an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and correct your treatment course. Various “triggers” can put people at risk of relapsing into old patterns of substance use. Causes of relapse can differ for each person. Some common ones include: • negative emotional states (such as anger, sadness, trauma or stress) • physical discomfort (such as withdrawal symptoms or physical pain) • positive emotional states (wanting to feel even better) • testing personal control (“I can have just one drink”) • strong temptations or urges (cravings to use) • conflict with others (such as an argument with a spouse or partner) • social pressures to use (situations where it seems as though everyone else is drinking or using other drugs) • good times with others (such as having fun with friends or family) A lot of determination,courage and sacrifice is required from your side.Rest I will help you with some very effective homoeopathic medicines with which you will come out of your habit.

MYTH. ABOUT DIABETES?

Myth 1: I am overweight. I will eventually develop type 2 diabetes
There are many different causes of diabetes and being overweight doesn?t mean you will get the condition but it does tip the scale. The reason obesity is linked to diabetes is because it increases insulin resistance (which means greater amount of insulin is required to regulate blood glucose levels). This makes the pancreas work overtime to produce insulin. This is what causes diabetes. However, there are cases where thin people have uncontrolled diabetes and obese people have no diabetes whatsoever.
Myth 3: I can?t eat sweets or chocolate because I have diabetes
No food is absolutely forbidden as long as attention to portion control and advance meal planning is done. A piece of sweet or chocolate won?t cause any problem but it?s necessary to keep a check on how much of it you consume.
Myth 4: Fruits contain carbohydrates, so I should avoid including them in my diet
Any food that contains carbohydrate will raise blood sugar levels but the only proper way to see how high your blood sugar levels will rise is the glycaemic index (GI). The lower the GI value, the lower will be the rise in blood sugar level and the better it will be for your health. Most fruits have a low GI value. They are also excellent sources of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre, and are relatively low in calories. Also beware of fruit juices, especially the packaged ones because they?re very high in calories and sugar.
Myth 5: I should eat special diabetic foods if I have diabetes
There is no such thing as a diabetic diet. A healthy diet is one where you get 40-60% calories from carbs, 20% from proteins and 30% or less from fat. And the same is applicable if you have diabetes. Diet for diabetics should include a good amount complex carbs, vegetables and fruits. It should be low in processed foods, fat, salt and added sugar. It?s better to have five small meals a day instead of three large ones and make sure they?re well-spaced out.
Myth 6: I shouldn?t exercise if I have diabetes
On the contrary, exercise is an important part of diabetes treatment. Regular exercise, especially aerobic (walking, jogging, etc.) helps control your weight, gives you more energy and is good for your overall health. It also helps to control blood sugar elevation by increasing the body?s sensitivity to insulin.

My husband age 59, known case of congenital heart disease, coarctation of aorta operated 20 years back, now have asthma, now facing problem of pulmonary hypertension any new researches in this cases.

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Pulmonary hypertension occurs, when the pressure of lungs increase. Shortness of breath with exertion is the main symptom. This happens because the right ventricle can't force enough blood through the lungs to furnish enough oxygen. Chest pain often occurs. Fainting or loss of consciousness happens when the brain doesn't get enough oxygen. If you exert yourself, the need for oxygen may cause you to faint. Symptoms may become worse over time. How is it diagnosed? at your physical exam your doctor will ask you to describe your symptoms and other things about your health, especially what medications and drugs you have been taking. The symptoms already listed, especially when present in a young woman, make pph one possibility. If your doctor suspects pph, you will have an electrocardiogram, a procedure that records the electrical activity of your heart. Your electrocardiogram may show thickening of the muscle of the right ventricle. A chest x- ray may show evidence of decreased blood flow in the lungs. An echocardiogram, a test that uses ultrasound waves to create a picture of the heart, shows thickening of the right ventricle when pph is a cause of symptoms. The ultrasound waves can also make a reasonable measurement of the blood pressure in the arteries in the lungs. Sometimes a heart catheterization is needed to measure the pressure in the blood vessels in the lungs directly. Your health care provider will also need to test for other causes of high blood pressure in the lungs, such as blood clots in the lungs, diseases of the lung tissue, and liver diseases. How is it treated? pph used to be untreatable and always fatal, but current treatments seem to prolong survival. Blood thinners (anticoagulants) are usually used to prevent small blood clots that might further block blood flow through the lungs. The response to treatment varies from person to person. Some people benefit from the use of drugs called calcium antagonists. These drugs improve symptoms but aren't a cure. They expand (dilate) blood vessels in the lungs and improve blood flow. Prostacyclin, a normally occurring body hormone, may be given through a vein with the help of a special pump. Prostacyclin and a combination mixture of air and nitric oxide both may improve symptoms temporarily. In unusual cases people may be offered a heart-lung transplant.
