How To Increase Water Intake In Winter

Don't feel like drinking water often in winter because it isn't warm enough? in winter, we do not sweat hence we do not feel thirsty like in summer, so automatically our water intake decreases. Water is important in keeping the body functioning properly, as well as flushing out toxins from the body.

Insufficient water intake may lead to:

Digestive problems like constipation.
Dry, itchy skin, acne: water keeps skin healthy, soft moisturized during the dry months of winter
Nosebleeds
Repeated urinary tract infections
Sneezing with dry cough
Sinus pressure
Headaches


How much water should you take in winter

Men: 8-10 glasses/day
Women: 6-8 glasses/day
Lactating women: 8-12 glasses/day
Exercising men: 10-14 glasses/day
Exercising women: 8-12 glasses/day
Water requirements vary from person to person, depending on activity of the person.

How to increase water intake in winter?
Take clear soup before each meal. It will provide nutrition & increase water intake of body.

Take herbal tea, it will increase taste buds indirectly water intake of body.

Natural fruit juices are another way to add to your daily water intake.

Drink one glass of water every two hours, strictly.

महिलाओं और पुरूषो में बांझपन या अनुवंसिक्ता

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Allahabad
महिलाओं और पुरूषो में बांझपन या अनुवंसिक्ता

महिलाओं और पुरूषो में बांझपन या अनुवंसिक्ता

बांझपन या अनुवंसिक्ता क्या है?

एक वर्ष तक प्रयास करते रहने के बाद अगर गर्भधारण नहीं होता तो उसे बन्ध्यता या अनुर्वरता कहते हैं।

बांझपन, प्रजनन प्रणाली की एक बीमारी है जिसके कारण किसी महिला के गर्भधारण में विकृति आ जाती है। गर्भधारण एक जटिल प्रक्रिया है जो कई बातों पर निर्भर करती है- पुरुष द्वारा स्वस्थ शुक्राणु तथा महिला द्वारा स्वस्थ अंडों का उत्पादन,

  अबाधित गर्भ नलिकाएं ताकि शुक्राणु बिना किसी रुकावट के अंडों तक पहुंच सके, मिलने के बाद अंडों को निषेचित करने की शुक्राणु की क्षमता, निषेचित अंडे की महिला के गर्भाशय में स्थापित होने की क्षमता तथा गर्भाशय की स्थिति।
अंत में गर्भ के पूरी अवधि तक जारी रखने के लिए गर्भाशय का स्वस्थ होना और भ्रूण के विकास के लिए महिला के हारमोन का अनुकूल होना जरूरी है। इनमें से किसी एक में विकृति आने का परिणाम बांझपन हो सकता है।

बांझपन क्यों होता है ?

पुरुषों में प्रजनन क्षमता में कमी का सबसे सामान्य कारण शुक्राणु का कम या नहीं होना है। कभी-कभी शुक्राणु का गड़बड़ होना या अंडों तक पहुंचने से पहले ही उसका मर जाना भी एक कारण होता है। महिलाओं में बांझपन का सबसे सामान्य कारण मासिक-चक्र में गड़बड़ी है। इसके अलावा गर्भ-नलिकाओं का बंद होना, गर्भाशय में विकृति या जननांग में गड़बड़ी के कारण भी अक्सर गर्भपात हो सकता है।

क्या अनुर्वरता केवल औरतों के कारण होती है?

नहीं, यह केवल औरत के कारण नहीं होती। केवल एक तिहाई सन्दर्भों में अनुर्वरता औरत के कारण होती है। दूसरे एक तिहाई में पुरूष के कारण होती है। शेष एक तिहाई में औरत और मर्द के मिले जुले कारणों से या अज्ञात कारणों से होती है।
   
पुरूषों में अनुर्वरता के क्या कारण होते हैं?

पुरूषों में अनुर्वरता के कारण हैं 

(1) शुक्राणु बनने की समस्य - बहुत कम शुक्राणू या बिलकुल नहीं। 

(2) अण्डे तक पहुंच कर उसे उर्वर बनाने में शुक्राणु की असमर्थता - शुक्राणु की असामान्य आकृति या बनावट उसे सही ढंग से आगे बढ़ पाने में रोकती है। 


(3) कई बार पुरूषों में जन्मजात ऐसी समस्या होती है जो कि उनके शुक्राणुओं को प्रभावित करती है। 

(4) अन्य सन्दर्भों में किसी बीमारी या चोट के परिणाम स्वरूप समस्या शुरू हो जाती है।

पुरूष में अनुर्वरता का खतरा किन चीज़ों से बढ़ जाता है?

पुरूष के सम्पूर्ण स्वास्थ्य एवं जीवन शैली का प्रभाव शुक्राणुओं की संख्या और गुणवत्ता पर प्रभाव पड़ता है। जिन चीज़ों से शुक्राणुओं की संख्या और गुणवत्ता घटती है उस में शामिल हैं। 

  • मदिरा एवं ड्रग्स 
  • वातावरण का विषैलापन जैसे कीटनाशक दवाएं
  • सिगरेट पीना 
  • मम्पस का इतिहास 
  • विशिष्ट दवाँ। 
  • कैंसर के कारण रेडिएशन।


औरतों में अनुर्वरता के क्या कारण होते हैं?

औरतों में अनुर्वरता के कारण हैं -

(1) अण्डा देने में कठिनाई 
(2) बन्द अण्डवाही ट्यूबें 
(3) गर्भाशय की स्थिति की समस्या 
(4) युटरीन फाइवरॉयड कहलाने वाले गर्भाशय के लम्पस।

किन चीज़ों से महिला में अनुर्वरकता का खतरा बढ़ जाता है?

बच्चें को जन्म देने में बहुत सी चीजें प्रभाव डाल सकती हैं। इनमें शामिल हैं -

(1) बढ़ती उम्र
(2) दबाव
(3) पोषण की कमी
(4) अधिक वजन या कम वजन
(5) धूम्रपान
(6) मदिरा
(7) यौन संक्रमिक रोग
(8) हॉरमोन्स में बदलाव लाने वाली स्वास्थ्य सम्बन्धी समस्याएं।

Hello, I'm 24 years women unmarried. My problem is when I watch sex movies I get pain in my vagina and when I stop watching or think about it pain goes away. And my vaginal hole is too small, im scared whether I can have sex or not. Do I have any problem? Will this effect my marriage life?

Hi, when a female gets sexually aroused, the general characteristics of the excitement phase, which can last from a few minutes to several hours, include the following: muscle tension increases. Heart rate quickens and breathing is accelerated. Skin may become flushed. Nipples become hardened or erect. Blood flow to the genitals increases, resulting in swelling of the woman's clitoris and labia minora (inner lips). Vaginal lubrication begins. The woman's breasts become fuller and the vaginal walls begin to swell. So, collection of all these symptoms are normal which you experience when there is sexual excitement which is normal. The vagina gets lubricated and allows penis to go inside vagina easily, so don't worry it wouldn't affect your married life.

Brown Sugar Vs. Plain Sugar: Which One Is Healthier?

Brown Sugar Vs. Plain Sugar: Which One Is Healthier?

They say, not everything sweet necessarily leaves a sweet taste. True to that, sugar, whether brown or white, is often considered detrimental to health. Not only does it trigger glucose imbalance in the body, it also heightens the potential of cardiovascular diseases. However, if a comparison is drawn between white and brown sugar, the latter is assumed to be healthier. Brown sugar is essentially granulated sugar with molasses, so it contains greater amount of minerals and consequently is recommended over white sugar. Molasses, being a more natural constituent, reaps more health benefits in comparison to white sugar.

The usual process of manufacturing sugar involves extracting the juice from sugar cane, which then is centrifuged to form finer granules. Unlike white sugar, it goes into further processing; brown sugar is blended with molasses. This enhances the natural constituency of the sugar and makes it more refined. Brown sugar has certain explicit advantages. Often, white sugar includes synthetic flavors which may cause further damage to your health. As against this, brown sugar is slightly more beneficial.

Brown sugar comes with few other discrete advantages. A large number of weight watchers vouch for it. Compared to white sugar, brown sugar supplies a fairly reduced amount of calories. Moreover, brown sugar is surfeit in minerals. It provides one with a decent quantum of calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. With regard to taste, brown sugar has a quainter taste than white sugar. Brown sugar, on account of the greater proportion of molasses content, usually is less saccharine than white sugar.

While the minimal processing that goes into making brown sugar enhances its nutritive value, it really isn't a healthy alternative to plain sugar. True, it retains more health enzymes than plain sugar, but it does not really benefit your body. Many perceive that the hype around the health benefits of brown sugar is a marketing strategy and gimmicky stance to increase its market values.

Mifepristone single tablet is taken orally with water and 4 tablets of misoprostol r inserted in the vagina by a doctor after 48 hrs to be most effective. Misoprost can be put sublingually or taken orally also but efficacy is less. Bleeding will start after misoprostol insertion. This can be done only till 7 weeks in india. 7 weeks to be calculated form the first day of last menses. If done after 7 weeks chance of failure is very high. You will not get these medicines without doctor prescription.

I have two daughters and want a son now, but am unwilling to adopt sex determination or abortion. Please advise.

MBBS, DGO, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)

Sex determination is illegal in india according to pcpndt act. Also abortion purely on the basis of sex selection is not permissible. Save girl child. Say no to sex determination. There are lot many people who may guarantee you sex selection through various means but its all a myth. All of female eggs are x. And male eggs are x and y. When xx its a girl and when xy its a boy. So its matter of pure luck and chance. No one is at fault.
