FAQs about health problems

I have pimple scars on my face. How can I remove these?

it’s natural to have pimples at your age. Pimples is scientifically called Acne vulgaris .It affects many teenagers. Its prevalence is similar in both sexes but the peak age of severity in females is 16-17 years and in males 17-19 years. Pimples clear by the age of 23-25 years in 90 % of patients but 5 % of women and 1% of men still need treatment in their 30 or even 40 years of age.

Before we discuss anything, we must know how the pimples are occurred.
Our skins contain sebaceous glands through which sebum (oily substance) is discharged regularly .The junction where the hair follicle and sebaceous glands meet and make a common path called the Pilosebaceous duct.

Due to the blockage of pores present in our skin by dirt, the sebum gets obstructed causing the accumulation and growth of a type of bacteria in the duct making chemical reaction and inflaming them. During pimples, sebum secretion is increased, but this alone need not cause it. There are many factors to occur pimples like hormonal cause, inheritance, drugs (like steroid, oral contraceptives etc.), facial make –up etc.

Pimples are mainly occurred on the face, shoulders, upper and back of chest which are either blackheads or whiteheads.

Complications may form cyst, abscess etc.
- Squeezing, rubbing of the pimples heads may cause scars on the face. So never do such activities.
- Avoid keeping hands on face/ cheeks.
- Avoid the use of face wash as it may cause to occur/increase but regular washing with neem soap and water is essential.
- Avoid the causative factors including awakening late night, anxiety, stress, suppressing natural urges, taking too much hot, spicy, oily food etc.
- To use personal towel keeping dry and clean.
- Get light steam on alternate days to open the pores.
- Keep your bowel movement clear and take more leafy vegetables, fruits etc.

In order to remove the pimple scars it must be confirmed how deep and old the scar is. If they are light, they can be removed simply by applying the paste of Nutmeg and milk. Or you can use “No marks” ointment (available in the market) as it contains the good herbal compositions that works on the pimple scars.

I can not concentrate on my study. I also have low memory power. How can improve my memory power?
memory power in human beings varies with the individuals. Its low or high intensity is already fixed with the birth of a child. It depends upon the genetic factors and also how the mother has got the nutritional care/ Balanced diet during her pregnancy period. It’s also proved that all the children of the same mother have different memory power.
But still there are some later causative factors like head injury in an accident, shocking, chronic illness, psychosis, Alzheimer’s disease, long term use of aluminium cooking vessels etc help to decrease the memory power.
Nothing is impossible in this world.
- The easiest way to maintain your memory power is to take 2 Almonds/ Madhise Badaam (wet overnight and peel off the skin next morning) with a glass of milk daily.
-  Sufficient intake of Protienous diet, ghee also help to nourish the brain.
-  Habit of writing a diary daily is also another way. Or you can recall the whole day activities step by step like a movie before you sleep in the bed. Keep on this habit daily and feel the changes within a month.

In the context of concentration, as you are in Sweet Sixteen now, obviously/naturally it is difficult to concentrate in anything/ studies (if it is happened just now). But you are not supposed to spoil your future/ career by blaming or distracting your mind. In order to increase your concentration, you should divide your time in extracurricular activities, hobby giving more priority to your studies. You must increase your will power to achieve your goal that which can be reached only through educations.
So dear, hope u understand what I mean. In order to make yourself fit physically and mentally you can join Yoga centre. By regular practice of Yoga and Pranayam you will be able to manage / maintain yourself.

How can I increase my weight?
the easiest way to measure the ideal body weight proportionally to the height is to subtract 100 (fixed numerical) by body height in centimeters.
Suppose if your height is 5’6’’ or 165 cm (apprx.) that means your ideal body weight must be 65 Kg (165 – 100 = 65 Kg).
But according to you, u are just 50 Kg by weight, that means you have to increase your weight by 15 Kg.
Most of the people in the world are conscious/ worried about their body weight which is quite natural as it helps to enhance good physique. Over and under weight both are troublesome to our physical appearance. It is also true that overweight ness bring no. of diseases.

-  Deficient ingestion or intake of food (as in starvation, malnutrition –due to worm infestation also, worry, lack of sleep etc).
-   Poor assimilation or digestion of food, malabsorption of the end products of digestion.
-     Defective metabolism or disease states (both contagious like Pulmonary/lung T.B etc, non contagious like Diabetes, Cancer etc) etc.
These all are also the main causative factors for weight loss.
So you must have to find out the main cause of your underweight ness . After going the thorough clinical examination and ruling out the pathological conditions you must pay attention to your Balanced /caloric diet .Regular intake of milk, ghee, sprouted – grams, wheat, fruits, vegetables etc will help to increase your body weight.

Taking medicine is not only the solution. If you are free from above causes you may gain your weight & immunity power. You must have to change your food habit, life style. Once you go your thorough medical checkup & make sure that there are no such obstacles.
Taking cooked/ uncooked sprouts (germinated) especially of gram & moong, wheat items, fruits, milk daily as well as living stress free life etc help you lot.

I am unmarried man. I have regular sexual relationship with my girlfriend for a year. But she always complains of unsatisfaction. For 6 months now, I have erectile dysfunction. I visited an Ayurveda doctor and took medicines 'Vigorex' and Tentex Forte for 20 days. But my problem was not solved, so I went to a sex specialist. He suggested me to take Vit-E. But not any improve in my problem. Can you help me to solve this problem?

there could be many causative factors for erectile dysfunction which is either physical or mental causes. Due to some Somatic/Physical illness, injury/ trauma or effect of drugs the problem may come across.
Diabetes, kidney or liver disease, injury to reproductive organs or their nerves may lead to the dysfunction. The drugs taken against hypertension, allergy and psychic disease might have shown the side effects for it.
Likewise stress, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, fear ness, monotonous pattern in the sexual activities, emotional imbalance etc may also cause the erectile dysfunction.

You have written that there is a regular sexual relationship with your girlfriend for a year, she has always (i.e from the beginning) been complaining of unsatisfaction and you have been felt the dysfunction only from last 6 months onwards. That means due to the regular complaint you might have got lost the confidence and developed the problem. You’ve also said that you are unmarried. Due to our social culture, in the context of prohibition of sex before marriage, it may cause and create such problems of psychogenic part.
So, hope you understand what I mean. You are at the age of making /built up your career, keeping more concentration to your studies. If not possible you can marry your beloved girlfriend to whom you have shared your love and life.

I am 19 years girl. Doctor says me that I have low blood pressure. I sometimes feel dizziness, hiccup. I have also pain during menstruation period. Are they related eachother? Plz suggest me.

You are 19 years old!  So you need to know about the normal pressure and Low blood pressure.
Low pressure (Hypotension) is blood pressure that is so low that it is causing symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney; the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.

In fact, some individuals may have a blood pressure of 90/50 and have no signs or symptoms of low blood pressure,

You must know pressure is too low; there is inadequate blood flow to the heart, brain, and other vital organs.
. Most normal blood pressures fall in the range of 90/60 mm Hg to 130/80 mm Hg, but a significant change, even as little as 20 mm Hg, can cause problems for some people.

Dehydration, heart problems, changes in the heart rhythm fainting shock are the common cause of low pressure. You have not mentioned how you recorded you BP Do not worry in your age; use plenty of fluid every day. If problem persist consult to physician

There is no relation to menstruation problems and low BP. But if you get heavy bleeding your blood pressure falls down. Other wise pain can not cause low pressure in your age,   Mensturation is a normal physiological process Pain can vary and it depends on individual physical condition how much pain will you experience during periods. Menstruation pains should decrease as you get older.  There are a lot of individual variations, some in some girls the pain may be lower and in others the pain doesn’t have to decrease.
Physical activity, taking warm baths during mensturation or warming up your lower abdomen or back may help ease the menstrual pain.
Always remember! Although most of the girls experience pain during periods, the pain should last for a few days only.

My problem is when I start to cough, it does not stop. I went to doctor. But they could not find anything. It is the matter of 2 months age. I took antibiotics at that time. I am still taking kuff tab and other cough medicines. My breath stops and abdomen sounds when I cough. I am depressed of this disease. Suggest me.

Ans: First I would like to ask following question before giving answer!
Are you coughing dry?
Are you wheezing when you breathe in?
Are you having raise in temperature sometime?
Are you losing weight without trying?
Are you coughing up blood?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions consult to physician soon. 
If you answered "no" to all of these questions, one of the causes may be causing your cough. Dust Smoke pollen, mold, and freshly cut grass pets and certain plants cleaning agents and room deodorizers and chemical fumes

Bhojo, honey juice of Ginzer( zingiber officinalis) with honey and  water with  Tulsi is beneficial for dry cough. Kadiradiwati Mayurpuccha Bhasma,Talisadi Churna Asuro plant( Adatoda vesica) preparation are beneficial for chronic cough. But do not forget this ayurvedic drugs are not the over the counter medicine. Before having this, consult to ayurvedic doctor
