Headaches occur due to one of these reasons: 1) colds or sinusitis 2) stress or lack of sleep 3) migraine (one-sided headaches) 4) hangover after taking alcohol 5) fasting 6) dental problem 7) ear infections 8) dehydration what to do if you have a headache: 1) hydrate yourself by drinking 6-8 glass water 2) sleep in a dark room. Wear comfortable cotton clothes and just relax. 3) cold compress to forehead relieves headache by reducing inflammation and constricting blood vessels. 4) practise muscle relaxation technique by doing deep breathing while lying down with your eyes gently closed. 5) if you have sinus headache, take steam inhalation to relieve your headache. 6) avoid caffeine as initially it will relieve your headache, but slowly it will increase the headache.

I am 25 years old Male. This is a personal question about related to my private part (penis). I have been masturbating for quite some years and never had an intercourse. My size of the penis is quite large and sometimes it becomes loose and the sperm counts are less compared to a normal person. Please suggest if I can live a healthy sex life? If there is anything could do to get my penis stiff (hard) with more sperm counts? Also, it's slightly bent towards the right side and does not get straight. Let me know if that won't be any problem? If this something not serious. Please suggest. Thanks!

You have long penis are still worried ??? Anyway just remember that , if your desires are good the erection too will be good. Bending can be there as this is muscular organ, & does not have have bone into it. It makes no difference. Relaxxxx. . I believe you are wearing underwear round the clock. It is not right. This could be one reason for fall of sperm counts. DO NOT WEAR UNDERWEAR AT NIGHT AND ON HOLIDAYS. Take bath with cold water and your trousers should be loose to wear around hip and scrotum area. Also whenever you go to have sperm check then prior to it, at least 3-4 days of absence from sex or masturbation is mandatory. About good diet - Fresh fruits and Fresh Vegetables with one hour of brisk walk in morning is mandatory. Do these and slowly sperm count to some extend may be better.

If you are fit and do not get over-excited, your intercourse can last long enough. With regular exercise you will build endurance and therefore your stamina will last long too.

RISK FACTORS OF DEMENTIA

RISK FACTORS OF DEMENTIA

RISK FACTORS OF DEMENTIA

Risk factors
Dementia usually affects older people. While it is possible to develop dementia early in life, the chances of doing so increase dramatically with age. One in 50 people between the ages of 65 and 70 have a form of dementia, compared to one in five people over the age of 80.
Mind your head There is no fail-safe way to prevent dementia, no magic medicines or vitamins that do this, but there is now good evidence that a healthy lifestyle and diet could reduce your risk. 
Causes of Alzheimer’s diseaseIt is unlikely that there is a single cause of Alzheimer's disease. Researchers believe that many factors, including age, genetic background and lifestyle, work together and lead to the onset of the disease. Information sheet Am I at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease? Information sheet Aluminium and Alzheimer's disease.
Causes of vascular dementia Many factors can affect whether a person develops vascular disease or vascular dementia, including lifestyle, diet, and drinking and smoking habits. Some types of vascular disease are hereditary. People with high blood pressure, a high level of fats in their blood or diabetes are at an increased risk of developing vascular disease.
Learning disabilities and dementia The prevalence of dementia in people with other forms of learning disability is also higher than in the general population. People with Down’s syndrome are at particular risk of developing dementia.Information sheet Learning disabilities and dementia

I masturbate 4 to 5 times. Should I have problem in future. I can't able to control my self while masturbating.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I masturbate 4 to 5 times. Should I have problem in future. I can't able to control my self while masturbating.
Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly.

Lifestyle choices in controlling blood pressure

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
• Try lifestyle management for up to 6 months. It can alone control the high blood pressure if initial BP is <160/100 mmHg.

• Lifestyle interventions have effects similar to single drug therapy.

• Combinations of two (or more) lifestyle modifications can achieve even better results.

• Maintain normal body weight. A reduction of 5–20 mmHg of BP can be achieved for every 10 kg weight loss.

• Consume a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy products with a reduced content of saturated and total fat. It can reduce a blood pressure of 8–14 mmHg.

• Reduce dietary sodium intake to no more than 100 mmol per day (2.4 g sodium or 6 g sodium chloride). It can alone reduce blood pressure by 2–8 mmHg.

• Do regular aerobic physical activity such as brisk walking (at least 30 min per day, most days of the week). It can alone reduce blood pressure by 4–9 mmHg.

• Limit consumption of alcohol to no more than 2 drinks (1 oz or 30 mL ethanol; e.g., 24 oz beer, 10 oz wine, or 3 oz 80–proof whiskey) per day in most men and to no more than 1 drink per day in women and lighter weight persons. It can alone reduce blood pressure by 2–4 mmHg.

Dear lybrate user, you may be suffering from a clinical condition called phimosis. The most conventional method to get rid of it is surgery. However, if you are unwilling to undergo surgery then you can try the following process at home. 1) buy any local anaesthetic gel (e. G. Lidocaine, lignocaine, xylocaine) from allopathic retail shop. 2) apply a little amount of that anaesthetic gel at the lower part of the prepuce of penis where the foreskin remains attached. 3) after application of the gel, retract the foreskin backwards as far as you can. Due to the anaesthetic property of the gel you will be able to retract the foreskin backwards to some extent more than you can do in normal condition. 4) release the foreskin when you feel pain 5) again repeat the same process. Do it continuously for at least 30 minutes in a day. Within a month you will feel that your foreskin has become loose.
