Faq General Health

The smelly belly button is regular, but If you have a combination of foul smell and discharge,
it could be a sign of:
A fungal infection/ yeast infection/ bacterial infection/ bruise around or within the belly button.
In most cases, it’s simply sweat & dirt that gets accumulated.
Clean the belly button for 2-3 days; if there is still liquid oozing, visit a doctor.
Handle the area very carefully. First, we have to loosen the dirt/ grime.
Take hot water and add salt to it, dip a soft muslin cloth in it,
wipe the belly button with this and take it a bit deep to soften the area, and the dirt will come out quickly.
Do not push too much, do it in 1-3 days regularly until it stops smelling. After cleaning that, apply a little bit of coconut oil and leave it will further soften the dirt.
Increased hormones during pregnancy can cause higher cholesterol levels and delayed gallbladder emptying, leading to the formation of gallstones.
If these gall stones developed during the pregnancy,
there is a cure for that.
There are chances they get dissolve with medicine
deep fried stuff and heavy greasy food, diet.
During pregnancy hormones increased which
cause, higher cholesterol levels and delayed
gallbladder emptying,
which can lead to formation of gallstones.

This medicine only works on cholesterol-enriched
noncalcified gallstones and very small-sized stones
( less than 20mm)

It is available at big pharmacies (like Connaught Place in Delhi)
It’s a simple phenomenon; in nature, birds & animals stop eating just before sunset (5-6 PM) and start eating after sunrise (6-7 AM). This is most ideal for humans too.
While we sleep each night, we are in a state of fasting for several hours.
Intermittent fasting prolongs that fasting period either when we wake up in the morning or before we go to bed.
For example, when intermittent fasting, you may have your first meal at 10 AM and your last meal at 6-7 PM,
fasting again until 9-10 AM the next day.
It is doable; you can drink herbal tea or infused water/ green tea, etc.
Many people find it simplest, most sustainable, and easiest to stick, but we have to respect Bioindividuality as it can be different for individuals and their health conditions.
In my opinion, women should be careful with intermittent fasting.
As it can create an imbalance in hormones and thyroid levels.
There are cases where women’s menstrual period stopped when they started doing IF and went back to normal when they resumed their previous eating pattern.
Please be careful and follow your heart and find the balance in your life.

Humans are unable to digest lectins, so they travel through guts unchanged.

It can cause inflammation, GI problems, leaky gut, joint pain, etc.

Most of these lectin-containing foods are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and have numerous benefits so we can not ignore them.

In general dark colored potatoes were healthier. This applies to all the fruits as the pigment promotes good health. Try to eat organic food in veggies is as much as possible with the skin as the skin has a lot a benefits and is higher in fiber. Along with this skin is  food for the gut bacteria

All are important, you can eat good quality food or start supplements for them.

You are changing the food because you must be facing a severe health problem.

If your current food is not giving you good health, in that cause no harm in trying the new lifestyle Give it a fair chance for 21 days and see the results, then decide accordingly.

With age and lifestyle, adulteration in the food industry, we have to change our food choices.

When you were young, you must be playing football/basketball, but now you are sitting while day in front of your laptop.

We are not the same, so our diet can not be the same

Collagen is a protein.

It provides structure to our body like bones, skin, tendons, & ligaments. As we age, our body produces less & lower-quality collagen.

Due to this, our skin becomes less firm & supple.

Cartilage also weakens with age.

We need these 4 nutrients to help produce collagen. Vitamin C, proline, glycine, copper & high-quality protein (which give amino acids to the body). citrus fruits, bell peppers, and strawberries, cabbage, asparagus, and mushrooms, sesame seeds, cocoa powder, cashews, and lentils, aloe vera, chia seeds, flax seeds all are important for collagen.

STOP eating refined sugar & refined carbs.

Sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself. Avoid too much sun exposure. If you are facing an Arthritis condition, you need to start collagen supplement as it helps otherwise well.

Please DM me your whole Day’s diet schedule.

What do you eat throughout the day? What are the supplements& medication you are already taking for recovery and energy?

Once I know I will suggest accordingly. Take care.

Warm oil body massage with lavender oil can be very relaxing for you. If possible, take a massage twice a week.

STOP refined sugar completely.

SWITCH to whole & natural sugar substitute like soaked dates/raisins/figs/gooseberries/fruits. When you eat whole with full fiber, it will give you a more satiated feeling.

Roasted organic corns, steamed beetroot, steamed and roasted sweet potatoes, roasted coconut flacks. Nuts (up to 10 per day) and seeds(1-3tbs) will be an amazing sugar substitute.

Add chia seeds to water. Drinking this water keeps you satisfied and full; you do not crave sugar.


Make healthy balls with cacao powder, soaked date, soaked nut, & coconut butter. Keep them handy, and when craving sugar/ chocolate, eat them.

Supplement 1-Magnesium citrate 250mg after breakfast a month regulates glucose and insulin levels. Mg deficiency will cause intense sugar cravings, especially for chocolate.

2-Zinc picolinate (up to 30mg)for a month or as required helps the body metabolize insulin & glucose; deficiency can cause sugar cravings. 3- Check the omega-3 and complex also.

supplementation, for now, is important.
Give them D3 (1000 iu) for 1 month then you may increase to 2000iu in next month if need to. Always

Never supplements with BOLUS DOSES( 5 or 10/40,000 iu or more) as it depletes MAGNESIUM LEVELS.
Magnesium is required for Vitamin D conversion, whether it's from supplements or the sun. As it a
person is low in Magnesium, it shuts down the vitamin D synthesis.
They need 150-200mg of magnesium every day, either from food or supplements. AVOCADO,

Your question is not very clear to me but

Infused/flavored Water- sip whole day / whenever you wish to.
Vegetable Juice.

Iron deficiency can come from a
1-poor diet
2- blood loss.
3- your body is not absorbing iron from food. (malabsorption in the diet)
Vitamin C deficiency can be a cause of low iron absorption.
Eat 1tsp  awla powder/ 2capsules of awla power on an empty stomach.
Add some vitamin C substitute in every meal.
 I recommend starting with 1000mcg/daily of B-12  (always on a full stomach as B12 requires strong stomach acid to prepare for absorption in the intestines).
Start vitamin A supplement capsule/ drops eat it with the food.
You can have 1.5 mg (1,500 µg) every day.
Beta carotene significantly increases the absorption of iron
Eat a balanced diet with fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, tofu, organic soy, lentils, beans, etc. If you do not have any digestive issues, you will quickly absorb the iron,
Eat dark leafy greens (e.g., kale, spinach, turnip greens)
1- steamed beetroot or drink the beauty drink ( get the recipes from my page)

Eat one pomegranate every day.

Clean your mouth first with a SOFT brush and use herbal toothpaste.
Followed by cleaning between your teeth daily with an interdental cleaner (like floss/thin brush).

Mix them in a small container and dip the interdental brush in it and push it gently in between the teeth where you feel food particles/ fiber/ seeds stuck.
*Cleaning in between the teeth every day will SAVE LOTS OF TROUBLES
like toothache, cavities, swollen gums, etc.
*It will help remove a sticky film called plaque.
*Add water to the same mixture and use it as a mouth freshener.
