Ginger can help reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, thus providing relief from a headache. Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. Another option is to apply a paste of one teaspoon of dry ginger powder, also called sonth, and two tablespoons of water on the forehead for a few minutes. For further queries get back to me.

Chest pain can arise from the Gut, Muscle, Joint, Bone, Lungs ,Mineral, Vitamin deficiency's ,Stress etc 1) Detailed history including dietary & lifestyle needed in addition to medical, family ,occupational ,environmental history 2) Comprehensive lab testing needed .Do tests for inflammation, mineral deficiency and doing lab tests confined to the heart alone will never solve your chest pain and they do not address the whole patient .That is why your results are normal but you are not normal-still having symptoms. 3) Get detailed dietary and lifestyle habits advice based on the basis of detailed history and lab testing only. Master health checkups or Full body check up done in in hospitals and high tech labs are incomplete .They do tests what they want and not what you need .Both are different and the results are different. That is why your lab results may be normal but you are still abnormal and continuing doctor shopping. I Do not blindly believe your doctors .They may have vested interests also and never educate you about your disease If Your cardiac test results are all normal but you are still having symptoms that clearly indicates your Dr. Has not addressed your diet and lifestyle, has done incomplete lab testing and not given you the right dietary and lifestyle advice Do not blindly believe your doctors .They may have vested interests also and never educate you about your disease Always take second opinion otherwise you may be misguided by your Dr. to do expensive testing like Angiogram, angioplasty,without any real indication. Send a feedback with your name and contact number& take a consult for proper and complete history taking, Get the right tests done & get the right dietary and lifestyle advice. Identify the root cause and get rid of your chest pain which needs a consultation. Get educated and never medicated. Treat the root cause and never the symptoms alone .Take consult and fix your chestpain and palpitation.

Diabetes - 10 Steps To Prevent It!

Diabetes - 10 Steps To Prevent It!

With sedentary lifestyle, refined and processed food habits, obesity and diabetes is the new age epidemic. India, in fact, is being termed as the diabetes capital of the world given the huge rise in the number of cases over the last couple of decades.

There are well established risk factors for diabetes and if these can be managed, then the chance of delaying onset, controlling progress and containing complications are highly possible. Read on to know how simple things can be effective in preventing and managing diabetes.

  1. Weight control: Obesity is the most important risk factor for developing diabetes. A person with normal BMI is 20 to 40 times less likely to develop diabetes than an overweight person. Losing about 10% of the excess weight can help prevent diabetes by more than 50%. Check with your doctor what should be the ideal recommended weight for you and draw up a routine (diet, exercise, etc.) that will help you achieve and stay around that weight range.

  2. Exercise: All methods of exercise help in moving the muscles, which is drastically reduced given our sedentary lifestyle. Moving the muscle (as much and as often as possible) ensures they absorb more glucose and reduce the stress on insulin production. Something as simple as brisk walking for 30 minutes is good enough to reduce the chances of developing diabetes by 50%.

  3. Don’t be a couch potato: If watching television is your favourite pastime, it is time to change it. This puts people at risk of developing obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Also, watching television is usually associated with overeating, further adding to the risk of diabetes.

  4. Fibrous foods: Eating fibrous fruits and vegetables as compared to refined and fried foods helps prevent diabetes.

  5. Whole grains vs processed foods: When you have to choose between a pizza and a bowl of brown rice, go for the latter.

  6. Good fats vs bad fats: Polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds and help control diabetes. Trans fats present in margarine and baked foods are best avoided.

  7. Non-vegetarian foods: If you have a choice, pick fish and poultry versus red meat (processed or otherwise). The fish is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and helps control inflammation.

  8. Leave the whites: Get off white rice, white refined sugar and white flours. Include brown rice, brown or demerara sugar and wheat flour instead.

  9. Smoking: Quit smoking and you will note how beneficial it is in preventing diabetes.

  10. Alcohol: Moderate amount helps in effective functioning of the insulin.

If you have a family history or have risk factors, follow the above to prevent diabetes. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Asthma - Top Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Homeopath, Jaipur
Asthma - Top Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disorder. In asthma, the airways of the lungs get inflamed. Due to this inflammation, there is swelling inside the airways. This also causes excess production of mucous. The combined effect of swelling and mucus production is that the passage of air gets obstructed. This makes breathing difficult. A whistling sound or wheezing is often heard in such patients. Often the patient gets cough due to this obstruction of the airways. This cough is a reflex of the body to get rid of the excess mucous in the airways. A sense of tightness or heaviness is felt in the chest. One cannot expand the chest fully while inhaling. This is a medical condition characterized by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea.

Signs And Symptoms

  • Recurrent episode of paroxysmal dyspnoea (difficulty in breathing).
  • The breathing is laboured, with a wheezing sound, mainly on expiration.
  • Asthma attacks often occur in the early hours of morning (when there is no immediate precipitating cause). During the attack patients often prefers to sit then lie down.

Homeopathy for Asthma-

When it comes to the treatment of Asthma, Homeopathy is much better at treating asthma. It is in stark contrast to allopathy, where inhalers and steroids are used to suppress inflammation. Homeopathic medicines do not aim at just reducing inflammation. They also intend to cure the basic cause of the recurrent inflammation. This way, not only the symptoms of asthma are treated but the incidence of asthmatic attacks is completely eliminated. With a couple of months of Homeopathic treatment, you will be able to live a disease-free and medicine-free life. It is worthwhile to mention here that all Homeopathic remedies are natural and do not contain any chemicals. That is why these purely natural homeopathic remedies do not have any side effects at all. Here is a list of the top homeopathic medicines for asthma, along with the symptoms when they are used-

  1. Ipecac: Ipecac is used in treating asthma, where the patient experiences symptoms like heaviness and tension around the chest area. Sudden wheezing, suffocation is experienced followed by other symptoms like motions, vomiting and gagging. Cough remains constant, and the chest gets filled up with phlegm. Cold and perspiration is also likely to be experienced. A patient may feel as if a lump is present in the chest. Increased salivation is also indicated.

  2. Arsenicum: Arsenicum is an efficient homeopathic medicine, which treats asthma attacks, which take place after midnight. The patient is anxious, restless, and cannot sleep because of the fear of being suffocated. In such cases, the patient dozes off a bit, and wakes up with great burning sensation and sore feeling in the chest. Arsenicum is prescribed during chronic stages of asthma, usually in elderly people.

  3. Nux Vomica: Nux Vomica is used when asthma attacks occur due to gastric disorders and during simple spasmodic asthmas. People who consume an excess of caffeine or alcohol are more likely to experience such attacks. A constricting feeling in the lower chest region may be experienced. These attacks commonly occur during the morning.

  4. Kali Bichromicum: This homeopathic medicine is used is asthmatic patients where the asthma attacks occur because of potashes. The attacks generally occur between three to four a.m. in the morning. The patient gets compelled to rise from sleep and sit up in order to breathe. A stringy yellow mucus may be produced, and the patient feels a lack of air in his chest.

  5. Natrum Sulphuricum: This is another effective medicine for treating asthma. The symptoms of asthma treated with this medicine get worse in damp weather. Most asthma attacks occur with a rattling sensation being felt in the chest. Bowel movement may become loose after this type of asthma attack. Alcohol and aerated drinks make the symptoms even worse. Such attacks are common in the morning with the production of a green mucus.

Homeopathy has no side effects and treats the underlying cause of asthma. You should consult a homeopathic practitioner before starting homeopathic treatment for asthma. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Lybrate-user, since you are having hypothyroidism, that could be the cause foe excess bleeding. If hypothyroidism is well controlled tsh should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, otherwise many of the symptoms reappear. So please check tsh level and comeback with the result, if level is higher, then thyroxine dose will have to be increased. Further pain during menstruation can be controlled by taking certain painkillers and anti spasmodic drugs. Thanks.

Causes and treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Namaskar mitron! Main Dr. Shirish Malde Mumbai se sexology mein specialize karta hu aur aaj jo hum ye video ke dwara jo jaankari lenge ye humari jo sabsi badi samasya hoti hai, erectile dysfunction, ya isse impotence bhi kaha jata hai, iske baare mein hum jaankari lenge. Aap dekh rahe hai ki erectile dysfunction ye ek kaafi hadh tak ek samasya hai jo young age se lekar bade umar tak kisi bhi wyakti ko bhi ho sakta hai. Waise ling mein kadakpan aur uthaan aana, ling mein erection aana, ye wyakti ke marzi ke hisaab se nahi hota hai. Jaise hum apni marzi se paseena nahi nikaal paate, ye paristithi ke upar nibhar karta hai, waise hi ling mein uthaan aana ye bhi paristithi ke upar aur wyakti ke utejna ke upar nibhar karta hai.

Jab kisi wyakti ko ling mein uthaan lane mein ya lambe samay tak tikane mein takleef hoti hai wo asamarth hota hai, tab isse erectile dysfunction ya impotence kaha jata hai. Normally iski do wajah hoti hi; psychogenic yaani maansik kaarano se aur dusra hota hai physical yaani shaaririk shamta ke abhav se ye samasya nirmaan ho sakti hai. Toh hum short mein dekhege ye samasya kaise nirmaan hoti hai. Jaise hum kahege psychological problem toh kuch wyaktiyon ko lack of knowledge yaani sahi jaankari nahi hoti hai ya unhe fail hone ka darr bana rehta hai, kabhi kabhi couple mein communication thik nahi hone ke wajah se ya relationship disturb hone se bhi ling mein uthaan aane mein takleef hoti hai. Kayi baar wyakti bore hai ya stress hai, kabhi usko adequate rest nahi milta hai ya depression hai ya anxiety hai, aisi samasyaon se bhi usko jis waqt wo chahta hai us waqt uske ling mein uthaan nahi laa paata hai. Isko psychogenic problem kehte hai.

Aur ab dekhoge ke kuch organic problems hote hai, physical problem jaise diabetes, aur hypertension, ye bahut hi common rog hai jisse ling mein tanaav lane mein difficulty hoti hai us wyakti ko. Kuch medicines bhi hai jaise diabetic aur hypertension ki medicines hai jiske side effects ke chalet bhi ling mein tanaav aana mushkil ho jata hai. Toh ye hua kaaran ke wajah se, ab aap dekhoge ki impotence ya erectile dysfunction ke tests kya hai. Aksar ache doctor detail history lete hai aur ussi se unhe pata chal sakta hai ki ye samasya kis wajah se hai lekin kuch cases mein jaha diagnosis ke liye test ki zarurat hoti hai tab ye tests behadd zaruri hoti hai. Sabse pehli test hoti hai Intracavernosal Injection Vasoactive Drugs yaani penile Doppler test bhi keh sakte hai isse. Isme wyakti ki ling ki jo raktovayiniya hai uski rakht paribhraman kitna ho raha hai ye check kiya jaata hai. Ye test mein chota sa injection ling mein diya jaata hai aura aage chal ke aap dekhoge ke sonography se ye graph dikhta hai jisse blood flow ka velocity check kiya jaata hai.

Aur ek test hai Penile Angiography yaani agar rakhtvayiniya mein koi samasya nirmaan hume nazar aati hai toh angiography ke zariye wo block kaha par hai wo exactly hum pata kar sakte hai. Aur ek test isme use hoti hai wo hai NPT Scan Monitor yaani Nocturnal Penile Tumescence Test, isme wyakti ki puri raat mein aane wali erection machine dwara record ki jaati hai aur dusre din ye graph nikaala jaata hai. Normal wyakti ka graph aisa hota hai jaha pe wo teen se chaar episode erection ke usko aate hai aur ye aise wyakti ka graph hai jaha koi bhi erection nahi aaya hai raat ko. Toh isse unke bloof flow mein samasya hai ya nahi ye usse pata chal sakta hai. Abhi treatment ka jaha tak sawaal hai, aap dekh rahe hai ke treatment mein sabse ahem bhumika hoti hai counseling or sex education ki, jaise maine bataya tha ki kuch log darr se ya sahi jaankari na hone ke aabhav se peedit hote hai, unke liye ye bahut zaruri hoti hai. Kuch conditions mein oral drug dena zaruri hota hai yaani medicines ki zarurat hoti hai aur kayi case mein jaha medicine kaam nahi karti hai waha self-injections jo humne dekhe the wo de sakte hai, vacuum erection device bhi isme useful ho sakta hai aur last mein surgery ke dwara bhi ye problem solve ki jaa sakti hai.

Surgery mein Penile Prosthosis yaani penile implantation hota hai. Ab ek ke baad ek hum dekhege ke kuch medicines hai jo Sildenafil, Vardenafil, Tadalafil, ye wyakti ko erection lane mein kaafi helpful hote hai. Ye Intracavernosal Injection jaha wyakti khud hi apne aap ko injection de sakta hai mein aur 2-5 minute mein acha erection haasil kar leta hai. Next hai ye vacuum pump ke zariye bhi ling mein erection paaya jaa sakta hai aur last mein ye penile prosthesis jo silicone rods hote hai jo ling mein bithaye jaate hai jiske zariye wyakti ling mein tightness paa sakta hai. Toh aap ne ye dekha is video mein ki ling mein tightness lane ki jo samasya hai ye kaafi aam, young age se lekar old age tak sabhi vyaktiyon ko ye samasya kabhi na kabhi life mein ho sakti hai. Lekin agar sahi jaankari ho aur yogya maarg darshan mile toh is samasya se aap humesha ka chutkaara paa sakte hai aur puri tarah se ye treat kar sakte hai.

Iski aur adhik jaankari ke liye aap mujhe contact kar sakte hai lybrate.com ke zariye. Dhanyawaad.
