Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 53 years old and have been gaining weight steadily even though I eat fairly small portions and am very healthy. I run 2 to 3 times a week and drink plenty of water. I do not have any health problems, however, I do not sleep very well. According to my doctor, my thyroid function is normal. What would you recommend?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), they are completely perfect, no need to worry. Change your exercise at some days interval, as the body is habitat to the same exercise so you have to challenge your body strength by changing exercise. Yoga is good for weight loss and even for mental calmness. There are many asanas to perform for good sleep and to lose weight. Along with the above lifestyle changes, you can start Phytolacca berry two tablets in the morning, noon, and night. Passiflora mother tincture 10 drops in half a cup of water in the morning and night. To decide on further medication and the duration of treatment, I need to follow up and details. Have a good day.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
