It may not be a problem at all. Most of the time it is natural. It should be examined a doctor to exclude any pathological cause.

What is Healthy Diet???

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Very often in my schedule, a question similar to this one comes up- What food is good for my teeth?? Can I eat chocolates, Ice-creams, Cakes etc without damaging my teeth?? What makes a healthy food??

So let us discuss these questions one by one in the coming posts, starting from the question- 'What is healthy food?'

We are what we eat. Thus having a healthy diet will render us healthy. Healthy food is one that includes the following major food groups in your everyday meal:

- Fruits and Vegetables;
- Bread and Cereals;
- Milk and Dairy Products;
- Meat, Fish, and Eggs.

There should be adequate amount and proportion of all these food groups in our diet. Our diet should include nutrients adequately met for maintaining health, vitality and general well being and also makes provision for a short duration of leanness.

Food pyramid gives us a pictorial representation of food groups that should be included in Balanced Diet or Healthy Diet. This new food pyramid also includes exercises to emphasize its importance.

So now make sure you include all food groups in proper proportions and enjoy a new yourself from healthy food habits.

Only thing as pregnancy advances there is more weight and pressure, which sometimes aggravates fissure, so take a comprehensive line of treatment to reduce your pain, bleeding etc and avoid spicy food and Indian toilets.

Hello. Don't scratch the skin as it will damage your cells and tissues of the skin. Apply Olive oil mixed with vitamin E (break the Evion capsule, take the contents into the oil) and apply gently in circular motion on the skin. Oral intake of vitamin E - Evion capsule/ 1 cap. once daily for 3months only would also help you. All the best!!

Swine Flu in Pregnancy

Swine Flu in Pregnancy

What is Swine Flu?


It is a respiratory(associated with breathing) disease caused by a virus. This virus is similar to the influenza virus responsible for causing the common cold.

The scientific name of the virus is H1N1 type A influenza virus.This strain was earlier known to infect pigs(swine family), thus the name swine flu.It is a new strain of the virus, previously unknown in humans, hence, there is no known immunity in humans against this virus.

What are the symptoms:

There are three main symptoms :

Fever,
cough,
shortness of breath.
and a combination of one or many of these:

Headache, aching muscles, running nose, sneezing, chills, tiredness, loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea.

It is usually a mild disease for most people. Symptoms appear quickly and last for almost for one week to ten days.

How do I know if I am at higher risk?

Certain categories of people seem to be at higher risk for complications from swine flu. These are:

Asians, especially people living in poorly ventilated colonies.
People having associated ailments like - asthma, diabetes, paralysis, previous strokes, spinal problems, and jaundice.
Extremes of body weight;very thin built or obese people.
Smokers
Teenage mothers, women in their second and third trimesters are at higher risk.
How can swine flu harm my baby?

For the majority of pregnant women, swine flu does not cause any serious damage to the mother or the baby.

Fever in the first three months may increase the risk of neural tube and birth defects.
Fever during labor may cause neonatal convulsions, encephalopathy, cerebral palsy and fetal death.
Pregnant women should always take fever seriously and contact their doctor when the temperature goes more than 100 degrees.

How does swine flu affect me during my pregnancy?

Active infection by swine flu virus may cause miscarriages, preterm delivery, and adverse delivery outcomes.
There is a higher risk of hospitalization/ ICU admission during pregnancy.
Chest infections/ Secondary bacterial infections are common resulting in pneumonia or even brain infections.
What can I do to protect myself?

Protection can be at three levels:

1) Taking general precautions- which is most useful for prevention.

2) Use of vaccines.

3) use of drugs

Use of face masks will not prevent swine flu. Focus instead on hygiene and clean surroundings.

It is safe to consume well cooked pork and pork products.

Pregnancy after 30 is of course risky but many women are becoming pregnant and delivering baby successfully. So, stop worrying and consult gynecologist for preconceptional care- to check up her health and correct if any abnormality is found.

The Homeopathic Approach To Treat PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)!

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
The Homeopathic Approach To Treat PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)!

Hormonal imbalance and the associated health complications can throw your life completely off balance. Women, in particular, bear most of the brunt. One such menace that ladies dread the most is the PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Of late PCOS has been on a mercurial rise. As the name suggests, PCOS or PCOD (PolyCystic Ovarian Disorder) is a condition characterized by the formation of cysts in the ovary. In females suffering from PCOS, the ovary produces increased levels of Androgen hormone (generally produced in small amounts).

Though the exact trigger for PCOS may vary from individual to individual, the factors that are often responsible for PCOS include:

  1. Elevated levels of insulin in the body
  2. PCOS may be related to hereditary. Women who have instances of PCOS in the family (either mother or siblings) are at a greater risk of suffering from the condition.
  3. Inflammation (low grade) can also trigger PCOS in females.

Symptoms:
Females with PCOS may show one or more of the following symptoms

  1. Menstrual problems (irregular periods, suppressed, heavy or scanty periods).
  2. Hirsutism.
  3. Mood swings, depression, stress, and anxiety.
  4. Acne, skin discoloration (skin pigmentation).
  5. Fatty liver (in some cases).
  6. Hair problems (hair fall, thinning).
  7. A woman may find it difficult to conceive.

PCOS may affect a female and exhibit the symptoms during menarche (the first menstrual cycle). In some, the symptoms, however, appear at a later stage.

Role of homeopathy in treating PCOS

Allopathic medications and surgery have often been used to treat PCOS. Though there may be temporary relief, chances of a relapse are always there, not to forget the side-effects of these treatments. The treatments, more than often, leave a big hole in the pocket.

Homeopathy comes as a breath of fresh air, a much-needed solution for many women.

Homeopathic treatment has helped many women deal with PCOS and its associated symptoms better. Being natural, it has negligible side-effects (or no side-effects at all). Though a little time-consuming, the homeopathic treatment not only identifies but also helps in successfully eliminating the underlying factor responsible for the ailment. Thus, in most cases (including PCOS), homeopathic treatment provides a permanent solution to the problem, and that too, for only a small pinch in the pocket.

Few homeopathic medicines that play a pivotal role in treating PCOS and its associated symptoms include:

  1. Pulsatilla: PCOS can wreak havoc in your menstrual cycle. In many women, the period is not only late and scanty but short and suppressed as well. Pulsatilla is an excellent homeopathic medicine for such menstrual problems. In addition to dissolving the ovarian cysts, Pulsatilla also helps in regularizing the menstrual cycle.
  2. Conium: Women with acne and infertility issues benefit from Conium.
  3. Calcarea Carb: Conditions like PCOS associated obesity, depression, and fear are best dealt with the homeopathic medicine, Calcarea Carb.
  4. Apis Mellifica: The medicine is used to treat suppressed menses with pain in the right side of the ovary.
  5. Thuja and Sepia are two powerful homeopathic medicines that have produced fruitful results in women suffering from hirsutism. Suppressed and scanty periods can also be treated with Sepia and Thuja respectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

Dear lybrate-user, Several factors are considered before proceeding with normal delivery. If only baby weight is the issue here, According to your height, a trial of labour may be given. However, This is my personal opinion. The examining doctor who has assessed you is the best person to decide the final mode of delivery. Also, for induction of artificial pain, we do it at 7 days past your due date, if you have not gone into spontaneous labour by then. Please trust your treating obstetrician as they know all facets of your condition. Wish you a safe and healthy pregnancy! ☺

Yes it is normal as it happens with changing hormones in your body. The sinking feeling is because of hypotension which occurs in pregnancy to felicitate more blood flow towards uterus for foetal growth. You increase uptake of fresh fruits and juices and take lots of liquid it will compensate hypovolemia n hypotension. No need to take any medicine for it. Enjoy your pregnancy.
