Patient discussion about grow

Q. I am worried about my growing weight.Can someone give more information? Obesity is killing me every day. My eating habits have become irregular due to my night shift work. I have gained four kgs in a month. Weight gain makes me stressed. I am worried about my growing weight. I am not able to be active for the day due to obesity. I have tried with gym but in vain as I develop muscular cramps and tiredness and have low energy the next day at work. I have heard of Acai berry diet and its benefit associated with weight loss. Can someone give more information?

A. Acai berry helps in reducing the weight by increasing your metabolism. This increased metabolism uses your body fat to continue the process of metabolism. Thus any extra fat of your body will be used due to this heightened metabolism. Thereby reducing your fat and resulting in weight loss. You must take this with your normal diet. It also helps in elimination of toxic substances from your body as it has antioxidants. It’s been said that it slows down your aging process as well. So go ahead and enjoy the dual benefits of Acai Berry Diet.

Q. Why are so many kids being diagnosed with ADHD? Where was that disease when I was growing up? Why are so many parents taking their kids to get medicine for this so called ADHD? I am not saying it does not exist, but I do not believe it does to the extent that some people have made it out to be. Is that an excuse for parents who don't like to discipline their kids?

A. While I do not agree with medicating children with disorders, I do believe that ADHD is in fact a disorder and lots of kids do have it. My daughter is autistic and when we are in public and she starts to act up I'm sure there are people blaming my parenting because they don't know the whole story. It is unfair to judge children and the parents so quick without any prior knowledge of their situation. And to think of what the parents are going through having a child with an uncontrollable disorder. Instead of being one of the parents bugged by these situations, I think you should be grateful your child is not that way and offer a helping hand instead of a judging eye.

Q. can I grow taller after the age of 20? Now I am 28 yrs old and 4.5 height, can I grow taller after the age of 20?

A. Yes you can, at any age, add an inch or two of height by simply improving your posture.

• Stretching Exercises: - This exercise will help you to improve your posture. You'll be surprised to see that how much of "Height" is hidden behind your slouched back.

• Second, you can create a "Taller" effect by following some smart fashion techniques. You can easily add another inch or two of "illusionary height" by improving your dress coordination. For ex: If you are short wear vertical striped shirt.
