Patient discussion about performance

Q. Need help for my son, 7 years.I am worried that his academic performance shouldn’t get affected. Need help for my son, 7 years. He doesn’t take his food in time. He likes milk a lot; say 3-4 glasses, especially in chocolate milk forms. He enjoys good health but he is thin and suffers from constipation. I am worried that his academic performance shouldn’t get affected.

A. Milk is good for kids. But consumption of abnormal volume could cause constipation. Consumption of more milk reduces the water intake which in turn paves the way for constipation. He needs to have balanced diet containing fats and carbohydrates to ensure weight gain. Make sure that he takes more of fruits and vegetables in his diet. Juice will provide with other nutrients like minerals as well give the required water content, which would reduce the constipation. Try this and if there be problem, consult your physician.

Q. Can yoga be performed with some other illness such as back pain? My low back pain has made me near lazy and stressful. It happed while lifting a heavy luggage when in emergency. I had to lift 3 extra large boxes for loading in to a container lorry. This has made some stretch in my back, which still pains and I fear getting it worse. It hurts me so badly that I am not able to even exercise. For long I have been thinking of doing yoga. Yoga gives peace of mind as well as mental strength. But can yoga be performed with some other illness such as back pain?

A. A) Before trying yoga you must consult with your doctor. Mild low back pain can be healed with simple medications. It is quite natural to get back pain if you lift abnormal weight suddenly. If you regularly lift weights, then it will not hurt you. As far as yoga is concerned, it is very good for mind and body and is definitely liked with mental
happiness. Get trained under a qualified trainer. You can start with yoga once you recover fully from the low back pain.
