India Traditions - Scientific Reasoning Behind Them!

MBBS
General Physician, Malappuram
India Traditions - Scientific Reasoning Behind Them!

Indian traditions are more like the first lessons which are taught by the elders of the house. These traditions are often followed without any doubts and questions. These traditions are not just followed for the sake of religious rituals but have deep rooted scientific reasons associated with the same.

Some of the interpretations of these rituals are as follows:

  1. Namaste: When we greet someone or meet someone for the first time we join both our hands in for Namaste. This is done out of sheer respect for the person. Doing Namaste activates the acupuncture points of the fingertips and helps us to remember the person.
  2. Ushapan: This is the practice of drinking water from a copper utensil. This helps in absorbing the extra heat of the body thereby maintaining the body temperature. The water should be kept overnight in the copper pot before drinking it. It is believed that drinking water from a copper pot helps in bowel movement, cleaning of the stomach and creating digestive juices.
  3. Sukhasan: When ones sits on the floor with crossed leg is referred to as sukhasan. When having food in this position then a person has to bend and eat as they might have to move up and down while eating. When this happens the stomach is pushed while bending and the back is straight before taking the next bite. This movement leads to muscular movements thereby helping to produce digestive juices and aids in swallowing as well.
  4. Vamakukshi and shatapawali: Vamakukshi is referred to as the afternoon nap post lunch. Sleeping on the left side helps in the digestion of the food. Though prolonged sleeps can make a person lazy, a quick 10 minutes nap is recommended as it allows a person to be fresh.  Shatapwali means taking 100 steps, to be more appropriate it is the walk after dinner. This helps in the digestion of food as the gas created after consuming food is moved and the pressure in the chest is reduced. The above terms literally explain the famous praise, "After lunch sleep a while, after dinner walk a mile."
  5. Ear piercing: Though ear piercings are looked at as a fashion ornament, but as per the Hindu traditions these help in decision making, thinking abilities and intellectual development and also to some extent an acupressure point. It is ideal to get a baby's ear pierced by the 12th day of her birth, as it is believed that getting ears pierced early leads to acquiring the quality of minimal speech.
  6. Touching feet of elders: This is known as one of the best exercises as it aids in blood circulation, helps in stretching and pushing the organs, improves excretion and digestion and strengthens the physique. It is also believed to transfer an aura and positive energy from the person whose feet are being touched. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Laxative that can be safe during pregnancy-

Isabgol is the best natural laxative which can be used safely in pregnancy. During the pregnancy, hormone progesteron is responsible for constipation which causes relaxation of all smooth muscles of body including intestine. So the movement of food along the intestine slows down that allows the water in the food to be absorbed almost totally from the intestine, so that the end product reach the rectum is less bulky, hard and difficult to expel.

Isabgol is a bulk forming laxative so more water should be consumed with it.

If you are overweight you need to reduce weight ; this is most important. Also get a hormonal assay and USG done to see if you have polycystic ovaries. Actual treatment will depend on these results. Usually a low dose hormonal pill is given to help regularise your periods.

Remember two facts 1) Travelling does not cause any problem 2) Sudden problem can occur to anyone in her bed or during travelling. So only difference is if you are at home you can reach to doctor faster and if sudden problem occurs during travelling it takes time for you to reach doctor. So just be positive and travel. But you need treatment as per reports so meet Obstetrician-Gynecologist.

You should have your ultrasonography done. During 1st 3 months of pregnancy, ultrasonography once is needed. Usually mild pain in abdomen is normal in 1st 3 months of pregnancy. But ultrasonography will reveal if any problem.

I am a virgin. Even my partner is a virgin. We plan to have sex. I prefer to use a condom and to be double sure also prefer my partner to have ipill. Please suggest would this create a problem in her periods? Hope having pill is a good option. Please suggest?

Psychiatrist, Chennai
Don't make her take pill unnecessarily without gyne advise, as it can have adverse effect. You can use double thin condoms to be doubly sure. All the best

Core Symptoms Of Autism!

Core Symptoms Of Autism!

The severity of symptoms varies greatly, but all people with autism have some core symptoms in the areas of:

Social interactions and relationships. Symptoms may include:

  1. Significant problems developing nonverbal communication skills, such as eye-to-eye gazing, facial expressions, and body posture.
  2. Failure to establish friendships with children the same age.
  3. Lack of interest in sharing enjoyment, interests, or achievements with other people.
  4. Lack of empathy. People with autism may have difficulty understanding another person's feelings, such as pain or sorrow.

Verbal and nonverbal communication. Symptoms may include:

  1. Delay in, or lack of, learning to talk. As many as 40% of people with autism never speak. 1
  2. Problems taking steps to start a conversation. Also, people with autism have difficulties continuing a conversation after it has begun.
  3. Stereotyped and repetitive use of language. People with autism often repeat over and over a phrase they have heard previously (echolalia).
  4. Difficulty understanding their listener's perspective. For example, a person with autism may not understand that someone is using humor. They may interpret the communication word for word and fail to catch the implied meaning.

Limited interests in activities or play. Symptoms may include:

  1. An unusual focus on pieces. Younger children with autism often focus on parts of toys, such as the wheels on a car, rather than playing with the entire toy.
  2. Preoccupation with certain topics. For example, older children and adults may be fascinated by video games, trading cards, or license plates.
  3. A need for sameness and routines. For example, a child with autism may always need to eat bread before salad and insist on driving the same route every day to school.
  4. Stereotyped behaviors. These may include body rocking and hand flapping.
