You can consult a dietician for this.Few suggestions are take a balanced diet of cereals (esp dalia, bajra), green leafy vegetables (esp methi, mustard leaves), dals ; legumes (masoor. black channa, soybean), fruits, milk products, eggs fish and meat. Do take almonds, cashew, walnuts, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, dates, raisins, cumin seeds, methi seeds, ajwain, dried ginger, gaund, jaggery etc. You should also take ample fluids in the form of lukewarm water, zeera water, ajwain water, soups, buttermilk, milk etc. You may also read a blog for this on our website, link is given I hope this helps.
