Hi I have problem with motion bleed. But it's comes some time only. What I have to do for it. With only food control.
Please note that you are having piles. The first home treatment for piles that is highly recommended is ice. Ice will help constrict the blood vessels, reduce swelling and give you immediate pain relief. â¢Apply an icepack or a partially melted piece of ice wrapped in a cloth directly on the affected area for about 10 minutes. Do this several times a day until the hemorrhoid goes away. â¢You can even use a small pack of frozen vegetables such as peas or corn. Wrap the pack in a tea towel and then apply it on the hemorrhoid. Do this for 20 minutes at a time, three times a day. Take Nux vom 30 â twice daily for next 10 days and report back for further treatment.

I am having hernia I am taking homeopathy medicines is it ok or I have to go for surgery I do not have pain till now and when I sleep it goes inside no bulging can I continue homeopathy I am 63 yrs old male.

If your hernia is small and isnt bothering you, I may recommend a watch-and-wait approach. Enlarging or painful hernias usually require surgery to relieve discomfort and prevent serious complications. In any case if you are overweight then reducing weight will help in preventing recurrence of hernia

Hypothyroidism is the main reason why the weight is increasing. If tsh levels are brought to normal, preferably between 3 to 4 milli units/ ml, then efforts to reduce weight will be fruitful. So firdt thing is to control hypothyroidism, bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units/ml, take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, (47 kgs), daily exercise of at least 1 hour is needed.

Thanks for contacting with your health concern 1. It is completely safe to take thyroxine during pregnancy and it poses no danger to the developing baby [you will be closely monitored] 2. TSH is the best way to tell whether you are getting enough thyroid hormone or not, during the first half of pregnancy it is measured every 4 weeks and in the second half, at least once.

I am a 26 year married lady. I have a son with 5 years. Since my pregnancy I have hyperthyroidism also I takes thyronorm tablets correctly. Currently I take 75 mcg tablet, today I found my TSH level it's 0.14. Is I take same dosage again or is it change?
MBBS, MD, DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
You must go for thyroid checkup once again, and if it is reduced, then reduces the dosage and if it is raised, then consult us. We will taper your dosage and start homeopathic treatment, which is mild and effective. Do revert with the reports. For more queries, contact us.

Firstly, start doing surya namaskar in morning and start eating triphla chooran (natural medicine) in morning empty stomach with luke warm water. Start a fruit dieting every alternative day, means you have to eat fruits every alternative days & normal fruit every other alternative days. Avoid late night dinners and try to eat nothing after sunset. Sit in vajrasana after every meal you eat for 10 minutes. Walk atleast 30 min in morning.
