Don't skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast won't help you lose weight. Eat regular meals. Eating at regular times during the day helps burn calories at a faster rate. Eat plenty of fruit and veg. Get more active. Drink plenty of water. Eat high-fibre foods. Read food labels. Use a smaller plate.

What is Pneumonia?

What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Bacterial pneumonia is the most common type in adults. Pneumonia causes inflammation in the air sacs in your lungs, which are called alveoli. The alveoli fill with fluid or pus, making it difficult to breathe.

Causes of Pneumonia:

Micro organisms including bacteria, virus, and fungi can cause pneumonia. The common bacteria for pneumonia include streptococcus pneumonia, Hemophilus influenza, and klebsiella pneumonia. Influenza virus causes pneumonia of viral origin, and adenovirus and rhinovirus pneumonia from fungi affect immuno-compromised patients. Fungi such as candida albicans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Apergillus fumigates, are the fungi that are involved in causing pneumonia. Cigarette smokingasthmaCOPDliver disease, and a weak immune system are risk factors for pneumonia.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of pneumonia include a productive coughchest pain on taking deep breaths or while coughing, difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath, fever, and chills. The phlegm may be rust-colored, blood stained, purulent, yellowish or greenish. Other attending symptoms are nauseavomiting, and fatigue.

Diagnosis:

  • A blood test- This test can confirm an infection, but it may not be able to identify what’s causing it.
  • A sputum test- This test can provide a sample from your lungs that may identify the cause of the infection.
  • Pulse oximetry- An oxygen sensor placed on one of your fingers can indicate whether your lungs are moving enough oxygen through your bloodstream.
  • A urine test- This test can identify the bacteria Streptococcus pneumonia and Legionella pneumophila.
  • A CT scan- This test provides a clearer and more detailed picture of your lungs.
  • A fluid sample- If your doctor suspects there is fluid in the pleural space of your chest, they may take fluid using a needle placed between your ribs. This test can help identify the cause of your infection.
  • A bronchoscopy- This test looks into the airways in your lungs. It does this using a camera on the end of a flexible tube that’s gently guided down your throat and into your lungs. Your doctor may do this test if your initial symptoms are severe, or if you’re hospitalized and your body is not responding well to antibiotics.

Role of homeopathy:

homeopathic treatment for pneumonia. It works well when chest pain accompanies pneumonia. The pain is stitching in nature. Chest pains get worse on coughing and deep breathing. While coughing, the patient needs to hold the chest because of the intense pain. Expectoration of rust or brick colored sputa is another characteristic feature. Along with these symptoms, there is difficulty in breathing, and there may be fever accompanied by chills.
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that the treatment focuses on the patient as a person as well as his pathological condition. The medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution and so on.
Homeopathy provides natural constitutional remedies for treating this condition from the roots and not just working on the symptom but repairs the derangement which is causing this. It offers excellent treatment which is effective, harmless, and without any side effects. It is also recommended in the most obstinate cases.

Today homeopathic remedies are the best nonsurgical solution for all.

What is urticaria(Hives)?

What is urticaria(Hives)?

What is Urticaria(Hives)?

Hives are a red, raised, itchy skin rash that is sometimes triggered by an allergen. An allergen is something that produces an allergic reaction.
It is also known as urticaria, welts, weals, or nettle rash.

When an allergic reaction occurs, the body releases a protein called histamine. When histamine is released, the tiny blood vessels known as capillaries leak fluid. The fluid accumulates in the skin and causes a rash.
Hives affect around 20 percent of people at some time in their life.
It is not contagious.

Types:

There are two types of hives - short-lived (acute) and long-term (chronic). Neither is typically life-threatening, though any swelling in the throat or any other symptom that restricts breathing requires immediate emergency care.

Causes:

Urticaria occurs when the body reacts to an allergen and releases histamine and other chemicals from under the surface of the skin.

The histamine and chemicals cause inflammation and fluid to accumulate under the skin, causing wheals.

Examples of known triggers include:

  • Medications, including some antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and ACE inhibitors, used for high blood pressure
  • Foods, such nuts, shellfish, food additives, eggs, strawberries, and wheat products
  • Infections, including influenza, the common cold, glandular fever, and hepatitis B
  • bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections and strep throat
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Extreme temperatures or changes in temperature
  • High body temperature
  • Pet dander from dogs, cats, horses, and so on
  • Dust mites
  • Cockroaches and cockroach waste
  • Latex
  • Pollen
  • Some plants, including nettles, poison ivy, and poison oak
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Some chemicals
  • chronic illness, such as thyroid disease or lupus
  • Sunlight exposure
  • Water on the skin
  • Scratching
  • Exercise

In over half of all cases, people never find the exact cause.

Chronic urticaria may start as an autoimmune response, but why it happens is unclear.

Symptoms:

Symptoms can last anywhere from minutes to months - or even years.

While they resemble bug bites, hives (also known as urticaria) are different in several ways:

Hives can appear on any area of the body; they may change shape, move around, disappear and reappear over short periods of time.
The bumps - red or skin-colored “wheals” with clear edges - usually appear suddenly and go away just as quickly.
Pressing the center of a red hive makes it turn white - a process called “blanching.”

Diagonsis:

A single episode of hives does not usually call for extensive testing. If a food allergy is suspected, consider keeping track of what you eat. This will help you discover whether there is a link between what you’re eating and when you break out with hives.

Chronic hives should be evaluated by an allergist, who will ask about your and your family’s medical history, substances to which you are exposed at home and at work, exposure to pets or other animals and any medications you’ve taken recently. If you have been keeping a food diary, show it to your allergist.

Your allergist may want to conduct skin tests, blood tests and urine tests to identify the cause of your hives. If a specific food is the suspected trigger, your allergist may do a skin-prick test or a blood test to confirm the diagnosis; once the trigger is identified, you’ll likely be advised to avoid that food and products made from it. In rare instances, the allergist may recommend an oral food challenge - a carefully monitored test in which you’ll eat a measured amount of the suspected trigger to see if hives develop. If a medication is suspected as the trigger, your allergist can conduct similar tests, and a cautious drug challenge - similar to an oral food challenge, but with medications - may also be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Because of the possibility of anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction, these challenge tests should be done only under strict medical supervision, with emergency medication and equipment at hand.

In cases where vasculitis may be the cause, your allergist may conduct a skin biopsy and send it to a dermatopathologist to examine under a microscope.

How to Avoid Dying Prematurely!

How to Avoid Dying Prematurely!

Stop smoking- Smoking tobacco is one of the most harmful things you can do on a regular basis. It's well established that smoking damages nearly every organ of the body and causes many diseases, including all sorts of cardiovascular related problems, which contribute significantly to premature death. Smoking is estimated to increase the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke due to atherosclerosis by up to 4x compared to non-smokers. Cigarettes contain a variety of toxic compounds that damage blood vessels and poison tissues.

  • Smoking is also the leading cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease of the lungs and lung cancer.
  • Use nicotine patches or gum to help wean yourself off cigarettes.
  • Try following the mnemonic START to help you get quit:
    • S= Set a quit Date.
    • T= Tell family and friends that you plan to quit.
    • A= Anticipate and plan ahead for hard times.
    • R= Remove tobacco products from. the home, car, work, etc.
    • T= Talk to your doctor about smoking cessation.

Control your blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is often referred to as the "silent killer" because it doesn't often cause noticeable symptoms until it's too late. High blood pressure puts strain on the heart and damages the insides of arteries over time, which promotes atherosclerosis or clogged arteries. It also promotes stroke and kidney disease. Blood pressure can be reduced with medication, although some people experience significant side effects from it. Natural ways of reducing blood pressure include losing weight if you are overweight, eating a healthy diet based on lots of fresh produce, cutting back on salt (sodium) consumption, daily exercise and controlling your stress via meditation, deep breathing techniques, yoga and/or tai chi.

  • Hypertension is defined as having blood pressure greater than 140/90 mm Hg on a regular basis.
  • The DASH diet is often recommended for hypertension and it emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, lean fish, and low-fat dairy foods.
  • Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control hypertension, but limit your sodium intake to less than 1,500 mg daily.

Maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Although eating fat, even saturated fat, is healthy in moderation — after all, fatty acids are needed to make all cell membranes in the body — too much "bad fat" is damaging to cardiovascular health. Although saturated fat (the kind found in animal products) is often touted as unhealthy, the kind that really causes problems is trans fat, which is an artificially made hydrogenated vegetable oil found in most fried foods, margarine, cookies and chips. Trans fats raise the "bad" LDL cholesterol and lower the "good" HDL cholesterol in your blood, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

  • Normal total cholesterol levels in the blood should be less than 200 mg/dL.
  • LDL cholesterol should be less than 100 mg/dL, whereas HDL levels should be above 60 mg/dL for optimal protection against cardiovascular disease.
  • The healthiest fats are often considered to be monounsaturated and polyunsaturated plant-based fats. Foods rich in polyunsaturated fat include safflower, sesame and sunflower seeds, corn oil and soybeans; whereas great sources of monounsaturated fat include avocados, canola, olive and peanut oils.


Be more physically active. Another important factor in reducing your risk of dying prematurely from cardiovascular disease is getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight. Obesity puts lots of strain on the heart and blood vessels, which leads to dysfunction eventually. Only 30 minutes of mild-to-moderate cardiovascular exercise each day on a regular basis is linked to better health and longevity, as it can reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels, as well as trigger gradual weight loss. Start with walking around your neighborhood, if weather permits, then transition to more difficult terrain, tread mills and/or cycling.

  • Avoid vigorous exercise to start with, or if you have a known heart condition. Vigorous exercise (such as marathon running) temporarily increases blood pressure and strain on the heart, which may trigger a heart attack.
  • Thirty minutes of daily exercise is good for your health and an hour is even better, but much beyond that amount isn't proven to be significantly more beneficial.
  • Recommendations for exercise include the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition. These recommendation include doing 150 minutes (2 ½ hours) of moderate intensity exercise every week. Types of moderate intensity exercise include ballroom dancing, biking slowly, gardening, using your manual wheelchair, walking, and water aerobics. More vigorous activities are biking up hills, basketball, swimming laps, and running.

Sexual Disorders - 7 Aphrodisiacs That Can Help!

Ayurveda is a field where the medicinal properties of the various herbs used have been proven scientifically, over the years. This ancient life science also brings in a knowledge base that can help in treating a variety of ailments. Sexual dysfunction is one such ailment which can leave a person with a less than stellar sex life. The various phases of sexual activity from stimulation to excitement and gratification can suffer due to such ailments which can prevent any or all phases from occurring in the first place. The disorders can affect the ejaculation, potency, orgasm and arousal as well.

There are a variety of herbs that act as aphrodisiacs in ayurveda that can help in treating sexual disorders in males and females, as follows.

1. Nutmeg: nutmeg powder and extract can be used by men who are suffering from sexual dysfunction. It can also increase the potency and the libido of the male patients who ingest it. This herb can also be used by women who are experiencing lack of libido and stimulation. Many women in Africa have used this herb since ancient times to build better sexual health.

2. Date palm pollen: the pollen from date palms can help in increasing the sperm count of the male patient who has a low sperm count. This aphrodisiac also improves male fertility.
