Advantages Of Homeopathy!

DM & S
Homeopath, Akola
Advantages Of Homeopathy!

Homeopathy is a holistic and a natural approach towards quick healing of an ailing individual. An estimate suggests that about 30% of the Indian population relies solely on the homeopathic treatment for their medical complications. People have witnessed incredible results with Homeopathy. The best part of Homeopathy is that there are no side effects associated with it, making it a much safer form of treatment. The fact that Homeopathy is both cost efficient and holistic or permanent in its cure, is one of the key benefits of this treatment. 

Let us discuss some of the benefits of Homeopathy in detail:

  1. No side-effects: Homeopathic medicines are very safe to consume as they are formulated using natural ingredients. Homeopathic pills are known to boost our immune systems and do not hamper digestion process. They do not cause allergies and suits almost everyone including children, adults and even pregnant and senior patients. National medicine agencies assure the safety and quality of homeopathy medicines as per the requirements of European Union Legislation and European Pharmacopoeia standards. Furthermore, homeopathy medication is completely free from chemicals and synthetic materials.
  2. Effective and Permanent cure: Acute or Chronic - homeopathy works like a miracle in both the cases. It treats a disease from its root and thus follows a more holistic or permanent approach to healing a person with least chances of reoccurrence of the disease. Most effective for allergic disorders and seasonal illnesses, homeopathy works wonders for bacterial or viral infections.
  3. Inexpensive and cost effective: When compared to conventional drugs, these medicines are much less expensive. Homeopathy medicines are also sustainable as they can be stored for prolonged periods and reused, if required.
  4. Long term gain: Studies have shown that homeopathic treatment ensures long term relief, eventually leading to complete cure. It is best known to boost our immune systems and strengthen the body's defense mechanisms alongside curing our diseases. There are least chances of reoccurrence of the disease, with this medication. 
  5. Gentle way of treatment and easy to administer: One of the vital reasons behind prescribing homeopathic medicine over conventional drugs is its gentle nature. The doses are in the form of sweet globules and thus are consumable by people of all age groups. Those who do not want to consume the sweetened globules have provision for liquids, powders or dissolvable tablets. The best part is that there are no injections! It boasts of non-invasive therapy and avoids surgery. It can be very well incorporated along with other therapies and medication.

Further, the medications of homeopathy are non-addictive in nature unlike some of the chemical antibiotics. Studies have shown that with appropriate medical treatment, homeopathy can reverse even the most chronic disorders with its gentle approach.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How To Protect Your Spine While Lifting Weights?

Clinical Cardiology, MD - Consultant Physician
Cardiologist, Surat
How To Protect Your Spine While Lifting Weights?

The human spine is endowed with tremendous strength and flexibility, but it is also prone to severe injuries. Due to the presence of a vast network of nerves in the spinal cord, particularly in the lower region, injuries can become gravely complicated with a large scope for permanent damage. Heavy lifting, sudden movements and twisting can lead to spinal injuries and must be avoided while working out in the gym.

There are simple precautions that you can take to protect your spine from accidents and injuries while doing heavy lifts in the gym. Not only will these precautions ensure that your spine is protected from any harm, but they also yield a range of health benefits in the long run.

Following are a few precautions that can be taken from spinal protection:

  1. Check the object before lifting: It is important that you check the weight of the object before performing the lift. Test it out by pushing it with your hands or your feet very lightly to see how heavy it is and determine whether or not you should be lifting it.
  2. Perform a warm up exercise: This is one of the most essential factors for preventing exercise-related injuries. Pace around and stretch all your muscles before you start lifting. This will keep your muscles from suddenly stiffening or locking while you do the lift.
  3. Ensure that the weight is well balanced: Unbalanced weights greatly increase the risk of injury. You should always make sure that the weight you are lifting is evenly balanced on all sides and that the packing is proper so that it does not move around when you lift or have pieces falling off it.
  4. Maintain proper posture: One of the most important aspects of lifting in the right manner is to maintain proper body posture. You must always avoid arching your back or reaching out while you lift as that will surely lead to injury.
  5. Move slowly: Sudden jerks and movements are sure to lead to injury when lifting weights in the gym. Slow and smooth movements are recommended as they keep you from straining your muscles. There is no need to rush through your workout. Always avoid twisting while performing a lift.
  6. Create enough space: There has to be enough room all around you while you are lifting. This will ensure your safety while you are working out.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, This is common and if the pain is more then you need to rule out endometriosis and adenomyosis which are common causes of dysmenorrhoea in women. This is often treated with antispasmodics and NSAIDS.

Kegel Exercise

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Kegel Exercise

The muscle you are working during kegels is called the pc muscle (pubococcygeus), and it's the same muscle you use when you control the flow of urine. Think about when you go pee then someone knocks on the door and you stop the stream of pee that muscle that you contract to stop the flow of urine is the pc muscle. Try flexing it right now.

This is also the muscle you use to hold in a fart. If you haven't found it yet, pretend you are holding in a poop  that's the muscle. When you do these, try not to flex other muscles, like your stomach or thighs. It's okay if you're squeezing your butt hole (that's part of the pc muscle), but don't squeeze your butt cheeks.
Variation

A kegel exercise routine will consist of contracting this muscle several times, at different lengths, and resting between reps. Try holding the muscle for 1 second. Try 3 seconds. Try 8 seconds. When you are new to this it is difficult and normal if you can only hold for a second or two. You will get better with time!

A workout routine will involve a few sets of these. For example, squeeze for 5 seconds, rest for 5 seconds, and do that 10 times. Now wait a minute and repeat the whole thing again. Some people prefer a static routine of 2 sets of 10 reps at 5 second holds, others come up with varying sets.

Also try doing these in different positions. Try standing up, sitting down, crouched, and in the fetal position. Try legs apart and legs closed. Some positions may be easier for kegeling than others.

Tips:
Remember to breathe holding your breathe during these will make it more difficult you may get turned on while doing these. That's fine, just go with it! you're only doing 2 things tensing or relaxing those pee-stopping muscles. It's best to do on an empty bladder, so if you have to pee, go to the bathroom before. As with any exercise, the more you stick with it, the better you become. Don't give up if you don't see results in a day you'll see results within a week!

गुदागत रोगो में क्षार सूत्र चिकित्सा

गुदागत रोगो में क्षार सूत्र चिकित्सा


क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा क्या है? तथा विभिन्न प्रकार के गुदागत रोगो की चिकित्सा में क्षार सूत्र चिकित्सा क्यों उपयोगी सिद्ध हो रही हैं? 

  • क्षार-सूत्र विभिन्न प्रकार की आयुर्वेद औषधियो से निर्मित medicated thread होता हैं यह एक प्राचीन आयुर्वेद चिकित्सा प्रक्रिया हैं जिसे स्व. Dr. P. J. Deshpande (1964 b. H. U.) नें एक नवीन रूप में विभिन्न प्रकार की शोध प्रक्रियाओं के द्वारा विकसित किया तथा भगन्दर आदि गुदागत रोगो की चिकित्सा में इसकी उपयोगिता को सिद्ध किया
  • क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि एक लघु आपरेशन (minor surgery) हैं जिसमें रोगी को बाद में कुछ घंटो के लिये भर्ती रखा जाता है तथा दूसरे दिन से अपने कार्यो को सुचारु रूप से शुरू कर सकता है यदि किसी रोगी को बेहोशी या स्पाइनल एनेस्थेसिया (under anesthetic) दिया जाता है तो 24 घंटे भर्ती रखना आवश्यक होता है
  • क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि एक ऐसी प्रक्रिया है जिसमें इस विधि से सही हुए रोगो के दोबारा (recurrence) होने की संभावना बहुत कम हैं
  • इस दौरान लगभग 8000 गुदागत opd रोगियो का परीक्षण-जांच-निदान-चिकित्सा की तथा लगभग 300 रोगियो का क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि द्वारा आपरेशन किया है
  • इस दौरान मैंने गुरू जी के सानिध्य में जाना कि इस विधि का परिणाम 98.5 प्रतिशत सफल हैं
  • इस दौरान मैंने 200 multiple opening fistula in ano रोगियो पर अध्ययन किया तथा इनमें से 21 रोगियो पर thesis तैयार किया जो पहले 2-3 बार सर्जरी करवा चुके थें लेकिन फिर भी वापस fistula in ano. Recurrence हो गया था और उनमें अच्छे परिणाम प्राप्त किये और उस तकनीक का नाम - bypass kshar-sutra aplication in high anal/anorectal fistula in ano. रखा

अन्य विधियो की तुलना में क्षार सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि द्वारा ईलाज के फायदे:-
1. आयुर्वेद क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा अन्य ईलाज व आपरेशन की तुलना में एक सरल प्रक्रिया है, जिसमें बिना चीरा -फाडी के औषधि युक्त धागे से धीरे धीरे कटिंग होती हैं तथा साथ ही साथ जख्म भी भरता जाता हैं
2. इस विधि से सही हुए रोगो के दोबारा होने की संभावना बहुत कम है
3. High type fistula, multiple fistula in ano में सर्जरी में गुदा की वल्लियां कटने का खतरा रहता है जिससे रोगी का लैट्रिन पर कंट्रोल समाप्त होने का खतरा रहता हैं जबकि क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि में फिस्टूला tract धीरे-धीरे एक नियन्त्रित गति से कटता हैं
4. बनारस हिन्दू विश्वविद्यालय, aiims, icmr, Dr. P. J. Deshpande तथा मेरे गुरूवर के द्वारा किये गये शोध कार्यो तथा क्लीनिकल ट्रायल्स से यह सिद्ध हो चुका है कि क्षार-सूत्र चिकित्सा विधि गुदागत रोगो के ईलाज में सर्जरी से अधिक प्रभावी और स्थायी ईलाज हैं!

Weight reduction
According to ayurveda, continuous indulgence in high fat food, fried items, etc, along with sedentary life-style leads to excess accumulation of body fat which gets deposited in the numerous body channels. This condition is associated with irregular appetite, hypertension, diabetes and many other metabolic-disorders. Special traditional approaches are included in this with the purpose to cut down this excess fat, to correct the irregular metabolism and to clear the body channels. Deep dry massage with herbal powders and pastes, synchronized massage with specific oils, steam bath, etc, mobilize the accumulated fat, where as, specially designed diet programs prevent its further accumulation. Along with these, appropriate panchakarma therapies are also advised by the physicians based on the requirements of the individuals.

Today is 11. Wait till 14 th which is your date. You're having gastritis, reason for loose motion and it's not due to pregnancy. No medicines for it, only home remedies like ors type of liquids and diluted toned milk and curds get blood test for beta hcg hormone which is positive only when the woman is pregnant or wait until 14 th plus date for urine test for pregnancy which may be positive blood test is more definite.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What are the medicines I must consume planning for pregnancy. Have read we must take folic acids. Can you suggest a g...
Yu have to take iron and folic acid and multivitamins also. You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

One pound equals 3,500 calories. If you cut 500 a day from your diet, you'll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day. •Find resources to help you keep track of your food choices and nutritional values, and that can offer additional support when you need it.
