Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Masturbation if not overdone is totally normal and will cause no side effects. It will improve energy levels by reducing stress, also increase body immunity. Nothing to worry. Also eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do regular exercise to stay fit.
