I’m 22 and have been go­ing to the gym for some time now. But re­cently while ex­er­cis­ing, I’ve no­ticed a sig­nif­i­cant rise in body tem­per­a­ture ac­com­pa­nied by heavy per­spi­ra­tion. This is fol­lowed by nau­sea, dizzi­ness and some weak­ness. Please ad­vice.

Ajit Singh Maiya, Mum­bai

My ad­vice would be to keep a gap of at least four to five hours be­tween your meal and gym time. Stay hy­drated. Drink­ing lemon water reg­u­larly will also help you main­tain body tem­per­a­ture.

I read an ar­ti­cle on a re­puted health web­site that sug­gested that stand­ing for two hours can help one lose weight. Is this true? Ra­jal Ra­jput, Ahmed­abad Read­ing up on health up­dates is a very good habit, but I rec­om­mend that do not be­lieve ev­ery­thing you read. Yes, stand­ing is a good ex­er­cise, but it hardly helps you lose weight as op­posed to other ex­er­cises.

My mother’s friend is a kinder­garten teacher who runs af­ter tod­dlers all day. She has been com­plain­ing about se­vere back and knee pain. Could you please sug­gest some ex­er­cises that can ease or pre­vent pain?

Priya Singh, Delhi

I sug­gest she do bhu­jan­gasana for the back. For the knees, she should do back­ward-for­ward stretch­ing plus ap­ply oil on the knee area and mas­sage it, and also per­form pawan­muk­tasana.
