My daughter is 14 years old but her height is not increasing she is 4.5 feet and all my family members are above 6 feet. What to do?

Calculate your projected height. Working in inches or centimeters, you can try to predict your height based on the height of your parents. o Add up your mom and dad's heights (in inches or cm). o Add 5 inches (13 cm) if you're a boy; subtract 5 inches (13 cm) if you're a girl. o Divide by 2. o The answer is your predicted height, give or take 4 inches (10 cm). Note that this isn't an absolute calculation, but it should be pretty close. Eat right. Ensuring that you're getting all the vitamins and minerals your body requires will help you grow to your full height. Take a supplement targeted at your age group with breakfast each morning, and try to incorporate certain foods into your diet. Here are some specific suggestions: ? Make sure to take in an abundance of carbohydrates and calories for that is where the body gains its energy to grow. ? Get plenty of calcium (found in dairy products and green vegetables). Calcium promotes bone growth, and can help prevent osteoporosis. ? Taking 500 mg of niacin has shown to significantly increase growth hormone levels only when taken on an empty stomach. ? Get sufficient vitamin D (which can be obtained through eating fish, alfalfa, or mushrooms, or spending enough time in the sun). Vitamin D promotes bone and muscle growth in children[, and a deficiency has been shown to stunt growth and cause weight gain in teenage girls. If you don't like fish, consider a purified fish oil supplement (purifying removes mercury). ? Take in lots of protein (from meat, eggs, tofu or legumes). Proteins provide an essential building block your body needs in order to grow. At least one (preferably two) of your meals each day should include a high quality protein. ? Up your zinc intake (oysters, chocolate, peanuts, eggs, peas, asparagus and supplements). A zinc deficiency can cause stunted growth in children . The best way to make sure you meet your body's daily need is by taking a vitamin or supplement that includes zinc. ? Eat on a regular schedule. You should be eating 3 meals a day, with small snacks between breakfast and lunch, and lunch and dinner. Try to schedule these events at roughly the same time each day. Exercise your body. Sadly, if your growth plates have closed as due to your age, exercising will not affect your growth rate.[11] But if you enjoy swimming, biking, running, or yoga, among other sports, and you haven't stopped growing, exercise combined with the right diet and proper sleep should help you grow. ? Doing stretches has some beneficial effects. There are tons of "grow taller" exercises on the Internet, which claim to help you grow. As mentioned above, after your growth plates have closed, you will not grow taller. Therefore, there's no scientific evidence to suggest you can grow taller through stretching. Stretching may improve your posture.for further assistance you can concern me privately.

My son is aged 12 years but he is very slim and short in comparison to his age group friends. He also throw out a lot of saliva from mouth while sleeping. Suggest some homeopathic treatment.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Dribbling saliva frommouth is called drooling and Medically it is termed as sialorrhea (excessive saliva production) which is generally seen in infants while teething and sometimes in children with muscular problems and behavorial and neurological conditions like cerebral palsy. There are different glands that contribute to the production of saliva. And the amount of saliva your body produces while you’re asleep is quite less than while you’re awake. Normally You don’t drool when you’re awake because you swallow up the saliva. But when you’re sleeping you’re relaxed and so are your facial muscles. Hence, whatever saliva the glands produce gets accumulated in your mouth, which then leaks out of the mouth because you don’t swallow it. If you drool while sleeping, you must have noticed that saliva leaks out mostly when you sleep on your sides and rarely when you sleep on your back. That’s because, when you sleep on your back, saliva settles at the back of your throat and eventually drains down. There are certain problems that could be associated with drooling and these are----------- 1. Allergies: Allergic rhinitis and certain food allergies cause over-production of saliva resulting in drooling. 2. Acidity --- Acid reflux episodes cause the gastric acid to stimulate the esophagus, as a result the esophagosalivary reflex gets excited leading to excessive saliva production. 3. Sinus infection: Upper respiratory tract infections are usually associated with breathing and swallowing problems, which cause drooling due to accumulation of saliva. Also, when your nasal passage is blocked due to flu, you tend breathe with your mouth, which causes the excess saliva to flow out while sleeping. 4. Tonsillitis: Tonsillitis is the inflammation of glands called tonsils present at the back of your throat. Due to inflammation and swelling the passage becomes narrow, thereby obstructing the drainage of accumulated saliva down the throat. 5. Sleep terrors: Drooling is a known symptom seen in people suffering from sleep terrors. Sleep terrors can be manifested in adults as a result of psychopathological reason. They often occur when a person in under severe emotional stress or may be triggered by certain drugs like sedatives, alcohol or even sleep deprivation. Sometimes, drooling is also seen in people suffering from other sleep-related disorders like sleep walking (somnambulism) and somniloquy (sleep talking). 6. Drugs and chemicals: If you’re on certain medications or if you’re taking drugs then drooling may be an everyday thing for you. Some antidepressants and medications like morphine, pilocarpine (treats dry mouth) cause increased saliva production. Although treatment can be done according to any underlying problem but if it is due to excessive salivary glandss secretions the start taking this medicine for 15 day and consult thereafter. MERC sol 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drop direct on tongue today night and after this forget about this medicine for 15 days. PL 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Ask homoeopathic pharmacist to prepare this medicine 2 drahm in 30 number globules and start taking this medicine 4 tabss 3 time daily for 15 days.

By the time your child turns an year old, you should stop bottle feeding and breastfeeding him. Make him habitual of drinking whole milk from a "sippy-cup".

Hello. Don't worry, babies usually get greenish stools during dentition as they put things into their mouth. Give your baby homoeopathic medicine - Chamomilla 30/ thrice a day for 1 week. Get back to me.

The Most Common Allergies in Kids And How to Avoid Them

Childhood is indisputably, one of the best phases of life. But often this phase is disrupted by illnesses and difficulties. Before they hit the age  mark of one year, they are prone to develop allergies and become susceptible to various diseases as their immune system is still building up.  For the first time parents, it is important that you are aware of the different kinds of allergies that could harm your child.

Through this blog, you’ll be in a position to understand and treat the prevent allergies which happen to kids. Now, let’s take a quick look at these allergies.

Signs of an allergy in kids

Some symptoms of a common allergy in kids are:

  • Rashes, redness or hives
  • Difficulty in breathing, wheezing
  • Upset stomach – constipation or diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Sneezing, coughing, and a runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Swelling of the lips, face or any certain part of the body
  • Ear pain, or ear infection

A child may have one or more of these symptoms in varying levels. It is always good to keep an eye on your child’s health as these symptoms tend to shoot from mild to severe in a short span of time.

Types of Common Allergies in kids

Although these allergies occur commonly, you need to ensure that your child doesn’t develop any of them. There’s a chance that these symptoms could get worse and without proper treatment and care, they may cause extreme discomfort.

Some of the common allergies in kids are:

  • Food Allergy

Food allergies could occur when children consume a particular food for the first time. Common allergens are peanuts, eggs, milk, dairy products and gluten. A milk allergy (lactose intolerance) can come up during the latter years of the child’s life when he begins to consume milk. On the contrary, peanut, gluten and other such allergies can surface after 6 months of age when solid foods are introduced.

Current recommendations suggest food items like peanuts and other nuts should be introduced early in the first year of life.

 

2. Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)

Although the symptoms are similar to a common cold, allergic rhinitis is one of the most common allergies in kids. It causes a runny nose, sneezing, coughing and sometimes it escalates to severe levels causing a  blocked nose, wheezing and other related breathing difficulties. A child with allergic rhinitis may also develop pain in the ear, which may eventually lead to infection. This can be caused by pollen, parthenium or other allergens in the air.

3. Asthma

It is a condition in which there is a restriction in the flow of air due to the inflammation, narrowing and swelling of the air passages. The body begins to produce extra mucus which makes it difficult to breathe normally. It may be triggered by similar allergens which causes rhinitis. It leads to wheezing, difficulty in breathing, coughing and shortness of breath.

4. Sinusitis

It is a condition in which the cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed. It could get triggered by a cold or some allergens present in the air. One way to know the onset of the sinus is through signs like headache, facial pain, nasal congestion and a runny nose.

5. Bee-sting allergy

A bee sting is never gentle, but if somebody is allergic to the bee venom or bee sting, things could get worse. It may cause swelling of the stung area, severe redness and itching. It may cause swollen air passages leading to difficulty in breathing and dizziness.

6. Eczema

Eczema is a form of dermatitis, which is one of the common allergies in kids. It is a skin condition which is marked by an itchy and an inflamed patch of skin. It appears around the elbow or behind the knees of young kids and teens. Scratching the affected areas can lead to redness of the skin.

How to Avoid Common Allergies in Kids

We believe that prevention is better than cure. So here are a bunch of ways to prevent your child from developing any kind of allergies:

  • Steam inhalation after a warm bath can help in clearing up any nasal or chest congestion. It also helps in killing the bacteria as it is difficult for them to thrive in warm temperatures.
  • Keeping the baby hydrated definitely helps in keeping the allergies at bay. Keep a water bottle or sipper handy because it works as an easy reminder.
  • When the weather is hot, keeping the baby in a cool environment can help in keeping them away from pollen and other common airborne allergens.
  • With itchy and scratchy eyes, a cold compress is the best remedy to bring a soothing relief instantly.
  • Using some warm compress over the face can help in relieving sinus pain and sinus blockages. Using steam inhalation is also helpful in dealing with sinus.

5 ways to prevent your baby from falling ill this winter

Winter comes and brings with itself cold and flu viruses- extremely bad news for babies. What makes it worse is that these viruses are contagious, and they spread fast as they are airborne. In such cases pulling your baby away from a sneezing or coughing or sniffling person is not enough. Neither is covering him up in layers of warm clothes. But you can take certain steps to prevent your baby from falling ill.

1. Wash your and your baby’s hands regularly: Washing your and your baby’s hands regularly is the easiest thing you can do to fend off cold and flu germs. It is essential for you to wash your hands after changing diapers, wiping a runny nose and before preparing your baby’s food. As for your baby, washing his before eating or after he comes back from an outing is an absolute must.

2. Vaccinating your baby: You can further prevent your baby from falling ill during the winter season by making sure all his vaccinations are up to date. Getting him an annual flu shot once he becomes 6 months old is necessary, as it protects your child from catching the flu virus.

3. Boost your baby’s immunity the natural way: You can breastfeed your baby regularly to boost his immunity. The American Academy of Paediatrics strongly advises breastfeeding our baby till he is one year old as it is the best way to provide complete nutrition and enhance the immunity of your baby. Breast milk contains minerals, vitamins and proteins that generate antibodies and help in fighting illnesses.

4. Take your baby out in the sun: Even if it’s outside, taking your baby out in the winter sun can do wonders for his immunity. Vitamin D of the sunlight is a very important part of the body’s immune response. Plus, the fresh air and sunlight can help kill all the germs you may have gathered while being cooped up inside. Just be sure to cover your baby well before taking him out.

5. Make sure your baby gets enough sleep: Inadequate sleep can nearly double the chances of your baby falling ill. Harley Robert, professor of paediatrics at the University of Colorado says that lack of sleep is directly related to the health of your immune system. So make sure your baby gets enough sleep, and be sure to put him to bed earlier if he has been around someone who’s sick.
If you follow these measures, then you can greatly reduce the chances of your baby falling ill this winter.
