Take greens and fruits as per your doctor’s advice or your family elder’s advice.
Take food at correct time.
Evening also take your dinner very early like <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:time Minute="30" Hour="18">6.30 pm</st1:time>
Take lots of ‘betal leaves’ and put ‘thambulam’ This will help you to avoid indigestion and constipation.
Take limited water.
Take head bath as per your custom. Usually alternative day. And put ‘sambarani’ with a pinch of turmeric powder and 2 garlic skin. This will prevent you by getting cold after taking head bath.
Take 'Sutta applam' or 'Thalir vadam'
Avoid taking ‘Thur dal’ for atleast one year or till you are feeding to your child.
Avoid taking too hot or too cold items.
Avoid red chilly or green chilly use black pepper instead of them.
Avoid fried items.
Asusual if you can please add more details in this thread. You are most welcomeBow

Fry 1 table spoon of the manathakkali vethal in 1 teaspoon of ghee, in low flame till they bulge.
Crush and mix the fried vethal with 1/2 cup cooked rice (Hot)and a little salt.
This manathakkali vethal saadam is really yummy, and a good relief from the regular heavy food.
You can also have the fried vethal as a side dish for thayir saadam(curd rice).
Note: In this way you can eat fried vepampoo and fried salted sundikai also.
Fry them in ghee before serve them. Crush them and add salt then mix with rice.

Sukku thipili Marandhu
Ingredients: (kan alavu)
Dry fry and grind them.
Dissolve jaggery in water and add the syrup to the above mixture.
Now, add ginger juice and when the mixture got solidifies, add sufficient ghee or sesame oil.

So, I am not sure abt the qty.
