Dear lybrate user, *include whole grains in the diet, such as wheat bread/pasta and brown rice. *cheese and yogurt prepared with skimmed (nonfat) milk may be taken. *use garlic, onion, bitter gourd, spinach, raw banana, and black plum. *make a flour mixture of 1 part barley, 1 part black chickpeas, and 4 parts whole-wheat flour and use this to form pancakes and bread. *start doing some light exercise, such as brisk walking. Build up to a brisk walk of 30-40 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. *avoid sleeping in the daytime *take 1 teaspoon of indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.
