Stress & Sex Life - Any Relation?

Stress & Sex Life - Any Relation?

Ejaculation can be considered premature if it happens within 1 minute of penetration or if you are unable to control your ejaculation. There are several reasons that can contribute to premature ejaculation like performance anxiety, excessive excitement, relationship issues and hypersensitivity of the skin. To treat premature ejaculation, it is important to determine the cause and stress that can be a potent reason that is preventing you from 'lasting' long. Premature ejaculation can be life long or acquired.

The effects of stress on the mind:

Stress can create havoc in your life and it is closely related to sexual dysfunctions. It is caused not only by rigorous emotional turmoil, daily factors like work or school can also lead to continuous stress, which may pile up to have a profound effect on your mind and body. Stress tends to alter the brain chemistry by triggering hormones like Cortisol, Norepinephrine, Serotonin and many others that signal the nervous system and endocrine to put the body in a state of anxiety which leads to weakening of the ejaculation reflex arc.

The effects of stress on the body:

Increased level of stress causes the heart rate to drop and the body is stimulated to produce excess blood sugar, adrenalin and chemicals. If your stress is caused due to work, your body will respond to it by diverting blood towards the important organs like hands and legs and your concentration might also improve under stress. However, stress can diminish your ability to enjoy sex, heighten your sensitivity to stimulation and pain and increase impotence.

How stress causes premature ejaculation?

Stimulation of the sympathetic nerves and hormonal imbalance caused by stress create an urge to ejaculate. Generally, this urge is enhanced by mental and sensory stimulation till orgasm is reached. One is likely to engage in sex with an amplified urge to ejaculate because the nerves have already been exhausted which leads to an early climax. Men with premature ejaculation has shown significant impact on self esteem and self confidence and many people confirm high levels of anxiety connected to sexual or intimate situations with a partner.

In a recent-published survey investigating the female partner's perception of premature ejaculation and impact on relationship break ups, relationship quality and sexual satisfaction among females, many of them confirmed that premature ejaculation was the main reason for break ups.

Hormonal disturbances in Thyroid, Prolactine, Erectile dysfunction, Penile anomalies, Prostate disease, Lower urinary tract infection can also cause premature ejaculation.
 Reducing stress is an important step to cure premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation can be treated with medications, counseling, diet and exercises.

Kidney Stone Treatment in Hindi

गुर्दे की पथरी, या नेफ्रोलिथियासिस एक कठिन, क्रिस्टलीय खनिज पदार्थ है जो गुर्दे या मूत्र पथ मे होती है। गुर्दा की पथरी आम तौर पर गुर्दे में होती है और मूत्र प्रवाह के साथ शरीर से बाहर निकलती है। एक छोटा पत्थर, किसी भी लक्षण के बिना पार हो सकता है। लेकिन अगर पत्थर 5 मिलीमीटर से अधिक हो जाता है, तो यह मूत्रमार्ग मे रुकावट पैदा कर सकता है, जिसके परिणामस्वरूप पीठ के निचले हिस्से या पेट में गंभीर दर्द हो सकता है। 
विभिन्न पदार्थों से बने, चार प्रकार के गुर्दा पत्थर होते हैं - कैल्शियम, यूरिक एसिड, स्ट्रुविइट, सिस्टिन हैं। विभिन्न कारक इन पत्थरों के विकास के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकते हैं। आनुवांशिकी और पर्यावरणीय कारकों के संयोजन के कारण अधिकांश पत्थियां बनती हैं। जोखिम कारक में मूत्र में कैल्शियम का उच्च स्तर, मोटापा, कुछ खाद्य पदार्थ, कुछ दवाएं, कैल्शियम की खुराक, अतिपरजीविता, गाउट और पर्याप्त तरल पदार्थ न मिलना शामिल हैं।
 

गुर्दे की पथरी के लक्षण
पत्थर के आकार के आधार पर, मूत्र पथ के माध्यम से पत्थर का आंदोलन, अचानक गंभीर दर्द दे सकता है। पीठ के निचले हिस्से, पेट, और पक्ष अक्सर दर्द और ऐंठन की जगह होते हैं। गुर्दा की पथरी के अन्य लक्षणों में मूत्र में रक्त (लाल, गुलाबी, या भूरे रंग के मूत्र), उल्टी, मतली, बदबूदार पेशाब, ठंड लगना, बुखार, पेशाब करने की अक्सर आवश्यकता, छोटी मात्रा में पेशाब करना शामिल हैं। 
गुर्दे की पथरी का निदान
गुर्दा की पथरी के निदान के लिए एक पूरा स्वास्थ्य इतिहास मूल्यांकन और एक शारीरिक परीक्षा की आवश्यकता है। अन्य परीक्षणों में शामिल हैं:
- कैल्शियम, फास्फोरस, यूरिक एसिड, और इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स के लिए रक्त परीक्षण
- क्रिस्टल, बैक्टीरिया, रक्त, और सफेद कोशिकाओं की जांच करने के लिए यूरीनालिसिस।
- पेट एक्सरे
- अंतःशिरा पियलोग्राम
- पेट का सी-टी स्कैन
गुर्दे की पथरी के लिए उपचार
पत्थर के प्रकार और कारण के आधार पर, गुर्दे की पथरी के लिए उपचार भिन्न होता है। 
 

छोटे पत्थरों के लिए:
छोटे गुर्दा की पत्थरों में से अधिकांश को आक्रामक उपचार की आवश्यकता नहीं होगी। आप इस तरह से एक छोटे से पत्थर पारित करने में सक्षम हो सकते हैं:
- एक दिन में छह से आठ गिलास पानी पीने से
- एक छोटा पत्थर पास होने से कुछ परेशानी हो सकती है, इसलिए हल्के दर्द को दूर करने के लिए, आपका डॉक्टर दर्द निवारक जैसे कि इबुप्रोफेन की सिफारिश कर सकता है।
- आपका डॉक्टर आपको एक अल्फा अवरोधक भी लिख सकता है, जो कि आपके मूत्रवाहिनी में मांसपेशियों को आराम देता है, जिससे कि आप गुर्दा की पथरी को और अधिक तेज़ी से और कम दर्द के साथ पारित करते हैं।
 

बड़े पत्थरों के लिए:
गुर्दे की पथरी जो बहुत बड़ी है, उन्हें अधिक व्यापक उपचार की आवश्यकता हो सकती है।
1. औषधि-प्रयोग:
दर्द से राहत पाने में मादक दवाओं की आवश्यकता हो सकती है। संक्रमण की उपस्थिति होने पर एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं के साथ इलाज की आवश्यकता है। अन्य दवाओं में शामिल हैं:
- यूरिक एसिड पत्थरों के लिए एलोप्यूरिनॉल
- मूत्रल
- सोडियम बाइकार्बोनेट या सोडियम साइट्रेट
- फास्फोरस समाधान
2. अश्मरीभंजक:
एक्स्ट्राकोर्पोरियल शॉक वेव लिथोट्रिपी बड़े पत्थरों को तोड़ने के लिए ध्वनि तरंगों का उपयोग करता है। यह प्रक्रिया थोड़ी दर्दनाक हो सकती है और हल्के संज्ञाहरण की आवश्यकता हो सकती है। 
3. टनल सर्जरी (पर्कूटनियस नैफ्रोलीथोटोमी):
पत्थरों को आपकी पीठ में एक छोटी सी चीरा के माध्यम से हटा दिया जाता है और ये तब आवश्यक हो सकता है जब:
- पत्थर बाधा और संक्रमण का कारण बनता है या गुर्दों को नुकसान पहुंचाता है
- पास करने के लिए पत्थर बहुत बड़ा हो गया है
- दर्द को नियंत्रित नहीं किया जा सकता
4. यूरेटेरोस्कोपी:
जब एक पत्थर मूत्रवाहिनी या मूत्राशय में फंस जाता है, तो आपका डॉक्टर एक उपकरण का उपयोग कर सकता है जिसे यूरेरोस्कोप कहा जाता है। संलग्न कैमरे के साथ एक छोटा तार मूत्रमार्ग में डाला जाता है, और मूत्राशय में जाता है। एक छोटा पिंजरा पत्थर पकड़ने और इसे हटाने के लिए प्रयोग किया जाता है।

  • Blood tests – These include a whole array of blood investigation ranging from CBC , Urine routine microscopy, RBS, TSH, PROLACTIN, VDRL, HIV, HBSAG, HCV, AMH. And any other test depending on the history of the couple.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound- A complete ultrasound of the uterus an adenexa is done to diagnose any anatomical disorder.
  • Specific tests – In cases of recurrent implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss or if required other tests are also advised.
  • Diagnostic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy – For many, this test is an important part of a fertility evaluation .Laparoscopy takes place under general anaesthesia with small incisions made at or just below the navel and the pubic hairline. A laparoscope (a small-diameter telescope) is passed through the incision, which enables one to view the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and pelvic cavity for abnormalities. We can check that the tubes are open (tubal patency) by injecting dye through the uterus and observing it spill or not through the ends of the fallopian tubes.

Hysteroscopy uses another small-diameter telescope called a hysteroscope. This enables to assess the uterine cavity for abnormalities such as polyps, adhesions or fibroids.

What is Premature Ejaculation?

What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature (early) ejaculation—also referred to as rapid ejaculation; also called as early discharge. Premature Ejaculation Treatment in Delhi (PE) is the most common type of sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40 years and seen across all age groups. In elderly men (60 years) erectile dysfunction is more common. A study conducted by the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that this condition is almost equally prevalent in sexually active men of all age groups. If a man experiences uncontrollable ejaculation (discharge of semen from your penis) either before or shortly after sexual penetration (usually within 1-2 minutes of penetration), he may be suffering from PE. The Mayo clinic at the United States defines PE as a condition in which a man “always or nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration."

7 Myths About Homeopathy!

BHMS
Homeopath,
7 Myths About Homeopathy!

Homeopathy is a field of medicine that uses natural resources to make a difference in the long-term and on a sustainable basis. Presently, it is used by over 200 million people. On the basis of this philosophy, a homeopath provides remedies which can suit best to the physical and psychological conditions of a patient. Homeopathic remedies are certainly not very high in dosage. Its main purpose is to recognize and discard the cause behind the condition.

Following are the 7 myths about homeopathy:

  1. Training: It is a major myth that homeopaths do not really undergo proper medical training. The truth is that all these doctors have to go through a four year long process of training via courses offered at accredited colleges and universities. Further, the course also includes modules on pathology, anatomy and other fields like materia medica and homeopathic philosophy. By the time the training is over, the doctor is like any other doctor in any other field. Further, with constant research and practice, the doctor can become even more of an expert within ten years.
  2. Remedies are prescribed by doctors with no formal training: Many people believe that homeopathic remedies are prescribed simply on the basis of the visible symptoms and no diagnosis is done. However, the fact is that these remedies are prescribed by qualified medical professionals graduated from homeopathy medical colleges. They diagnose your medical condition before prescribing you any remedy.
  3. Unscientific medicines: These medicines are usually termed as unscientific by cynics. The truth is that the metals and minerals contained in the medicines are tested and put under trial before they are released for consumption. The values are recorded on periodic tables. The substances also include ingredients like plants and snake's venom. Each medicine's symptoms and accidental allergies are recorded and put forth with a perspective on human nature. The books on homeopathy are written and recorded on the basis of the symptoms and allergic reactions. Also, many people believe that the medicines are simply water as they are diluted solutions. These medicines are diluted with a method called succussion, which makes a dose potent with the help of vigorous shaking. While higher potency drugs are given to those suffering from an emotional state of belief regarding an ailment, lower potency medication is prescribed for those suffering from severe cases.
  4. Strict dietary restriction is to be followed at the time of homeopathic treatment: Many people believe that they have to control on their eating habits while undergoing homeopathic treatment. Fact is that for some patients, ingredients like garlic, onion, alcohol, coffee, tobacco etc. are to be avoided during the tenure of treatment. This is simply because these ingredients interfere with the homeopathic treatment.
  5. Homeopathy can cure any disorder: Some people have a strong belief that homeopathic remedies can cure any disorder or any medical condition. Fact is that this remedy is completely ineffective in cases where there is ultimate need of manual intervention where medicinal action is not suggestive eg: fractures, appendicitis, large tumors, etc. 
  6. No proof of efficiency: While it is a well known fact that homeopathy efficacy cannot be tested by standardised methods, due to the personalisation of the medication for each individual, it is also true that the efficacy has been proven with 180 controlled tests in the past 24 years and 118 random tests in the same time frame. It is important to know your facts before you decide to go with a certain field of medicine. With homeopathy, there will be a lot of focus on the human mind as well as the ailment for an inside out approach.
  7. Homeopathic remedies are not scientific: Many people consider homeopathic remedies to be unscientific. However, the basis behind homeopathy is pharmacological and clinical data. Vast studies and researches have been conducted on homeopathic remedies and treatment.

Brown Rice Vs Plain Rice - Which One Should You Be Eating?

Over the years, a sizeable number of people have expressed their affinity for brown rice as the healthier alternative to plain rice. Doctors are growingly recommending brown rice to all those keen on losing kilos or keeping type 2 diabetes in arrest. Brown rice essentially undergoes less of processing compared to white rice, hence it retains all the essential nutrients. Brown rice contains the side hull and bran, consequently, it helps in replenishing the crucial body nutrients like proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium. The growing popularity of brown rice not only stems from its nutritive values but also from the myriad healthy diet options that revolve around it. Unlike white rice, brown rice does not require artificial fortifications like synthetic vitamins in order to conform to the required standards of FDA. Brown rice enables you to enjoy the health benefits without compromising on the taste of rice. Brown rice is advantageous to not just the fitness fanatics, but is also the preferred meal for those with specialized dietary preferences like vegans. Some of the obverse rationale for brown rice may be listed as follows.

1. Controls insulin spikes
Brown rice has extremely low glycemic rating because of which the blood sugar levels in our body can be adequately controlled. While plain rice enhances the risk of developing diabetes, brown rice goes a long way in nullifying the glucose fluctuations in our body.

2. High in fiber
Brown rice is one of the most important sources of essential body fibers. It helps in preventing colon cancer by supplying the necessary fibers and it also detoxifies the colon walls by eliminating the cancer causing substances from the body.

3. Promotes weight loss
Brown rice regulates the bowel movements and thereby stimulates better metabolism. It is also considered to be one of the most wholesome dietary supplements because it remains a whole grain, unlike plain rice. Therefore, it is one of the most opted for food items for those wishing to lose the extra kilos.

4. Rich in salts and naturally occurring oils
Brown rice is rich in body salts like selenium and manganese which nourish your nervous and reproductive systems, thereby reducing the occurrence of diseases like cancer, arthritis and other cardiovascular syndromes.

5. Ideal as baby food
Given that brown rice is replete in necessary body fibers and health boosting nutrients, it is ideal for baby food because it promotes fast growth in babies and also averts any nutrition deficiency diseases. It also protects the baby from any synthetic vitamins that emerge from the consumption of white rice.

5 Reasons Why You Might Miss Periods

5 Reasons Why You Might Miss Periods

The amount of emotional upheaval that periods or no periods (for that matter) can cause is something that every woman is aware of. It is normal to miss your period for different reasons occasionally, but is a concern if this absence persists over long period of time. Although most people are quick to consider pregnancy while dealing with various reasons for missed periods, there are a number of other possibilities as well. They also should be considered in order to take effective precautions and seek proper medical care: 

1. Weight:

Body weight is responsible for affecting hypothalamus and this may, in turn upset menstrual cycle. BMI level under 18-19 may result in menstrual irregularities since enough estrogen is not created. This is also why underweight women, who suffer from bulimia or anorexia, tend to miss their periods frequently. On the other hand, overweight women may stop ovulating due to increase in the production of estrogen and have infrequent periods. Therefore, it is essential that the body weight is regulated. 

2. Stress:

Any type of physical or emotional stress is bound to affect your menstrual cycle. This is because, the production of stress hormones in the body increases. Their elevated levels may impair functioning of the reproductive system. Under stressful situations, the body employs its amino acids to assist neurotransmitters to produce stress hormones over sex hormones. As a consequence, the chances of missing your periods increase. 

3. Excessive Physical Exercise:

While regular workout is advisable for battling a sedentary lifestyle, overdoing it might cause your body to produce less estrogen and delay your periods. Women, who are into athletics and gymnastics, are more likely to suffer from amenorrhoea. In fact, other aspects of over-exercising, like sleeping less, fasting, and infections also contribute to such irregularities. 

4. Breast Feeding:

Prolactin is the hormone that aids in milk production and may also repress ovulation for a while. Many breastfeeding moms may not get their periods for a month or more as a result. But this doesn't do away with your chances of getting pregnant. 

5. Food Allergies:

Celiac disease or untreated gluten allergy can directly affect hormone production. They are directly related to your gut health and your adrenal glands. That’s why; they can influence sex hormone production.

How To Prevent Vaginal Dryness?

GAMS-AYURVEDA, MD-TCM
Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Prevent Vaginal Dryness?

When we see a happy couple, we think how lucky they are to have everything going great for them. However, a lot of women are embarrassed to talk about any issues they face in the bedroom. One such problem many women deal with is vaginal dryness.

If a woman takes a moment to think about how pleasurable a natural act like sex really is, it would be fair to say that the thought of something such as vaginal dryness making intercourse any less pleasurable will almost surely cause her to shudder. The good thing is that this issue is preventable.

Why does it happen?

In order to understand to a sufficient degree how vaginal dryness can be avoided or is to be treated, a person should first understand how it is caused. Many changes take place in a woman’s body when a woman goes through menopause, and vaginal dryness could be one of the changes that occurs, along with the periods of a woman becoming quite irregular before stopping entirely. This is due to a lower amount of oestrogen being produced.

However, while it is common for a lot of women who are going through menopause to experience vaginal dryness, it is by no means true that other women, across age groups, do not experience this condition. The other causes can vary and can include complex medical conditions or even lack of enough foreplay before the commencement of sex.

Treatment Options-

When a woman is treated for vaginal dryness, it is quite common for her health practitioner to provide a prescription for vaginal oestrogen ring. This can have an effective life span of anywhere between a month to three months and also serves to provide support to the pelvic floor for a woman who does not have much muscle strength in the region.

Apart from the ring, a woman can also ask her doctor about the viability of using of a vaginal ointment instead. This cream may feel a bit messy, but at the same time, apart from the initial one to two weeks of using it on a daily basis, a woman may need to apply it only once a week or maybe three times a week over the course of the treatment, as suggested by the doctor.

A tablet form of medication can also be suggested.

A woman, apart from treatments, should talk to the doctor about using of lubricants when having sexual intercourse as until the treatment has a significant effect, she is likely to need them.

Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

Cardiologist, Bhopal
Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

The heart is a muscular organ that helps to pump blood through the circulatory system by periodic contractions and relaxations. The heart is one of the most important organs of the body so much so that a single cardiac arrest or a heart attack can lead to fatal consequences. Even so, a heart attack is one of the most leading causes of death in the country. But there are some earlier symptoms that could alert you ahead of time. The following are signs of an unhealthy heart:

1. Sexual problems - Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most predictable reasons for cardiovascular conditions. Today, patients who are diagnosed with ED are also considered as cardiovascular patients. This is because the heart is supposedly not able to pump enough blood to the genital area. In case of women, reduced blood flow can hamper arousal and delay orgasms.

2. Snoring and sleep apneaIf one snores loudly enough to prevent their partner's from sleeping or resort to using earplugs, one may be at a risk of having a weak heart. Restricted breathing during sleep is connected with a host of cardiovascular diseases. Sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops for a brief span of time, is linked with higher cardiovascular risks.

3. Swollen, sore and bleeding gumsSwollen and bleeding gums are not only symptoms of dental conditions but also of cardiovascular difficulties. Medical experts believe poor circulation of blood arises due to underlying heart conditions. Recent studies are focusing on bacteria that are believed to cause gum disease as well as plaque inside the arteries of the heart.

4. Heart Arrhythmia - Irregular heartbeat or heart arrhythmia is a common sign of a weak heart. It is characterized by both fast and slow beating of the heart. Restricted blood flow to the heart strains the electrical signals that maintain the normal beating of the heart. This is one of the common causes of coronary artery diseases.

5. Chest painOne of the most apparent signs of coronary artery diseases is chest pain. The cause of the sharp, clutching pain in your chest can be build-up of plaque in the arteries, which could lead to fatal consequences.

I am 24 and my beard turning white day by day and increasing. But I dnt have single white hair on my head. What to do...
Greying of hair is a normal aging process which starts around 30 years of age. The hairs which have already turned white cannot be turned back to black. But you can delay the process of greying of hair by some lifestyle modifications. Take adequate sleep and drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Few multivitamin tablets can also be prescribed for the same. There is also one lotion which is supposed to work. You can contact me with photos for detailed​ prescription.

Hi, It's possible to loose weight with diet. But weight loss is a combination of 70% diet and 30% exercise. I can understand time must be a big issue, but at least some basic exercises at home can be started. For weight loss, keep all the meals on time, Take at least 5-6 meals everyday. Focus more on fresh fruits, salads, whole grains, protein rich sources like eggs, dals, sprouts.
