It is a part of scalp bone and if only the temporal bone is removed due to some pathology than we should again join it with a new tissue and there is a risk of seizures

You need to improve the tone of the muscles in a rhythmical manner. If you do that with proper diet restriction nothing will happen to you. Body pain is there after gym activity due to tiredness and you need to consume good protein and iron diet in your body which will help you to break the fatigue and body pain. You have to reduce the weight by walking minimum 3-4 kms per day. Slowly reduce the weight and slowly avoid adding salt in the diet which will help you to prevent water retention in the body. Excess salt in general leads to water in the body which might be the reason for you legs to pain as the leg will automatically become oedematous.

I am a vegetarian. I live in bangalore where people eat a lot of fish. They tell me that fish is good for the bones and the heart. I hate the foul smell of fish even after it is cooked and hence I cannot relish it. In the absence of fish, can I take around 6 capsules of SevenSeas cod-liver oil every day to strengthen my bones? Can egg also compensate? Kindly enlighten me.

many dont eat fish and are healthy, fish is not a must for healthy life. Eating fish is an individual's preference. Cod liver oil is good. Egg is also good. Eat what you like in a balanced manner. All the best.

Hand Pain This might be due to lack of blood circulation in the hands and we suggest to do contrast bath therapy ie. Immersing in cold/hot water in the interval of 3-5 minutes which will help you reduce the pain.

Bone Loss In Runners - Is It A Myth Or Fact?

Bone Loss In Runners - Is It A Myth Or Fact?

Thinking of running a marathon! Are you willing to risk your bones for it? You surely know that running decreases the risks of various disorders such as diabetes, obesity and heart diseases. Initially, certain theories were propounded which claimed that running increased one’s bone density. This has been proven otherwise, as recent research has shown that people who run for long distances actually suffer from reduced bone density as compared to somebody who doesn’t run as much.

  • A study was conducted that included women from different running categories. There were both recreational runners and elite runners included in the study. The average runner in the group ran at least 8-9 hours per week. Their eating habits were also evaluated to see whether it had any possible effect on bone loss.
  • The research concluded on the fact that women who logged most miles had lower bone density. A more specific calculation showed that logging every 10 km was interlinked with a 1%-2% dip in the bone density levels. Women who were more muscular were obviously less affected as compared to women who had less muscle mass.
  • While training, insufficient consumption of food can lead to a slow metabolism. An energy deficit is created wherein nutritional deficiencies crop up, resulting in bone density loss. Running for long periods is also equivalent to overtraining; so when a woman over trains, there is a dip in her estrogen levels. Any drop in a woman’s estrogen levels leads to loss of bone density.

Fact or Myth
Long distance running can lead to bone loss up to an extent, but this is again dependent on other factors such as hormones, food and strength training. If you have a well-balanced diet along with a proper strength training program, then long distance running will not cause much harm. Practice resistance training to strengthen your bones and muscles so that you don’t suffer from bone density loss while running.

I have dent in my skull. Right side. Also whole right side of my body feels week. Be it hand, leg, eye. I read something about Gorham disease, it's about dent in skull. It could be because of depression. I can't understand my condition and it's difficult to lead a normal life.

Dear, You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psychotherapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psychotherapy through mobile. Take care.
