अश्वगंधा के फायदे और नुकसान - Ashwagandha Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

अश्वगंधा के फायदे और नुकसान - Ashwagandha Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

अश्वगंधा एक सदाबहार झाड़ी है जो भारत, मध्य पूर्व और अफ्रीका के कुछ हिस्सों में पाई जाती है। इसकी जड़ें और नारंगी-लाल फल का प्रयोग सैकड़ों वर्षों से औषधीय प्रयोजनों के लिए किया गया है। इस जड़ी बूटी को भारतीय जीन्सेंग या विंटर चेरी भी कहा जाता है। अश्वगंधा का अर्थ 'घोड़े की गंध' है, जो इसकी जड़ों की विशिष्ट गंध को दर्शाता है। 
अश्वगंधा एक अनुकूलन है और तनाव से लड़ने में मदद करता है। अश्वगंधा को अक्सर पुनर्योजक के रूप में प्रयोग किया जाता है। यह एक शामक, अनुत्तेजक, मूत्रवर्धक और शारीरिक ऊर्जा और धीरज बढ़ाने के लिए भी इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। भारत में, मस्तिष्क संबंधी विकारों जैसे कि स्मृति हानि के इलाज के लिए अक्सर बुजुर्ग मरीजों को अश्वगंधा का विवरण दिया जाता है। 

अश्वगंधा के फायदे
आधुनिक अध्ययनों से पता चला है कि अश्वगंधा कई उपयोगों के लिए फायदेमंद हो सकता है, जैसे:
1. थायराइड के लिए:
अश्वगंधा जैसे अनुकूली औषधि के बारे में सबसे अविश्वसनीय पहलुओं में से एक यह है कि यह लोगों को हाइपो और हाइपर थाइरोइड दोनों मुद्दों के साथ मदद कर सकता है। यह हाशिमोटोस से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए थाइरोइड की मंदगति का समर्थन करता है, और अतिरक्त थायरॉयड या ग्रेव्स रोग वाले लोगों के स्वास्थ्य में भी सुधार करता है। इसके अलावा यह बहुत से मुक्त कणों की सफाई का प्रचार करके लिपिड पेरोक्सीडेशन को कम कर देता है जिससे सेलुलर क्षति होती है।
2. अधिवृक्क कायाकल्प के लिए:
अश्वगंधा अधिवृक्क कार्य को समर्थन देने में भी प्रभावी है जिससे आपको अधिवृक्क थकान और पुरानी तनाव पर काबू पाने में मदद मिलती है। यदि आपका एड्रनल समाप्त हो जाता है तो वह आपके अन्य हार्मोन को भी बाधित कर सकता है, जिसमें प्रोजेस्टेरोन शामिल है, जो बांझपन पैदा कर सकता है और डी.एच.ई.ए कम हो सकता है - जिससे उम्र बढ़ने की प्रक्रिया तेज हो जाती है। 
मेडिकल अध्ययन से पता चला है कि अश्वगंधा कोर्टिसोल के स्तर में सुधार, इंसुलिन की संवेदनशीलता में सुधार और स्वाभाविक रूप से हार्मोन को संतुलित करता है। 
3. मस्तिष्क के लिए:
हाल ही में किए गए अनुसंधान ने सिद्ध किया है कि अश्वगंधा केवल तनाव से राहत में मदद नहीं करता है, बल्कि यह मस्तिष्क को अवसाद से बचाता है और अल्जाइमर, अवसाद और चिंता के लक्षणों में सुधार करता है। मस्तिष्क के उपचार में अश्वगंधा के प्रभावशाली होने के मुख्य कारणों में से एक यह है कि इसके शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सिडेंट उम्र बढ़ने की प्रक्रिया में वृद्धि लाने वेल मुक्त कणों को नष्ट कर देते हैं।
4. मनोदशा सुधारता है:
चिंता और अवसाद दोनों के उपचार में अश्वगंधा प्रभावी है। अश्वगंधा का प्रमुख लाभ यह है कि बिना-अवसाद और विरोधी-चिंता वाली दवाओं की तुलना में इसे लेकर कोई प्रतिकूल प्रतिक्रिया नहीं होती है, जो भयानक साइड इफेक्ट भी कर सकते हैं।
5. कैंसर के लिए:
कुछ अध्ययनों में यह पाया गया कि अश्वगंधा में शक्तिशाली विरोधी ट्यूमर प्रभाव है। यह भी पाया गया है की इसका रस कैंसर कोशिकाओं के प्रसार को रोकता है - विशेष रूप से स्तन, फेफड़े, पेट, और पेट के कैंसर कोशिकाएँ। ऐसा माना जाता है कि मुख्य रूप से इसकी प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टिंग और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट क्षमता कैंसर कोशिकाओं के विकास को रोकने में मदद करती करती। मौजूदा कैंसर के इलाज में कीमोथेरेपी के अतिरिक्त अश्वगंधा एक बहुत उपयोगी हो सकता है। इसका रस कीमोथेरेपी के दौरान प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली पे दबाव पड़ने से रोकता है। 
अश्वगंधा, कीमोथेरेपी से जुड़ी सबसे बड़ी चिंताओं में से एक- शरीर में सफेद रक्त कोशिकाओं की संख्या में कमी, का सामना करने में सक्षम है।
6. सहनशक्ति और धीरज बढ़ाए:
मस्तिष्क पर इसके सकारात्मक शांतिदायक लेकिन उत्साहजनक प्रभाव और तनाव पैदा करने वाले हार्मोन को कम करने की क्षमता के कारण अश्वगंधा एकाग्रता, प्रेरणा, और सहनशक्ति में सुधार कर सकता है। इसके निचोड़ से ऊर्जा स्तर स्थिर रखने के अलावा मांसपेशियों और जोड़ों में शारीरिक दर्द को कम करने में भी मदद मिलती है।

अश्वगंधा के दुष्प्रभाव
अश्वगंधा के स्वास्थ्य लाभ अनन्त हैं, लेकिन अगर अतिरिक्त या लंबे समय तक उपयोग किया जाता है तो आपके शरीर को नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। 
1. इसे थायरॉयड दवाओं के साथ लेने से अतिरिक्त थायरॉयड हार्मोन पैदा हो सकता है, जो रोगी के लिए समस्या पैदा कर सकता है।
2. गर्भधारण के दौरान अश्वगंधा का उपयोग गर्भपात का कारण बन सकता है। यह भ्रूण को भी नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है इसलिए, गर्भवती या स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाओं को अश्वगंधा लेने से बचना चाहिए।
3. अश्वगंधा का उपयोग करने पर, पेट में जलन सबसे आम साइड इफेक्ट है। तो, यदि आपके पेट मे अल्सर हैं तो इसका उपयोग ना करें।
4. अतिरिक्त खपत पर यह नींद और उनींदापन का कारण हो सकता है।

Practising safe days for sex is highly reliable and has high failure rate as sperms can live upto 7 days. If she was in menses then she can not get pregnant, but for the safer side you should give her ipill asap as menses must have been very less by the time you had sex.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

What is the diet to be followed by a pregnant woman in the first three months of pregnancy.

Homeopath, Faridabad
What is the diet to be followed by a pregnant woman in the first three months of pregnancy.
Hello. If you don’t have any medical condition and if your diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure you have a healthy diet now. You need more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. You need a few more calories during your pregnancy as well. Getting your diet right for pregnancy is more about what you eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Eat a variety of foods from these different food groups each day: Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). They contain calcium. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Avoid Papaya. Meat, fish and poultry: these provide concentrated proteins. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Carry your own water when out of the house, or buy bottled water from a reputed brand. Avoid packaged juices as they have a very high sugar content. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fat. **********Consult nutritionist also****

Health Tips for Gymming

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Health Tips for Gymming

Proper diet and nutrition is very important specially when you are working out. Without proper diet you will not gain muscles and all your exercise will ends in cramps and lean body.

I am giving you a schedule which if followed can be very benificial for new gym goers.whcih are as follows:

Breakfast

7:30 a.m.

1 cup plain cooked oatmeal, 4 large whole eggs, large sliced banana, 1-3 g of HMB (Beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate -- is a naturally produced substance in humans that is used as dietary supplement and as an ingredient in some medical food products)

Mid morning Snack

10:00 a.m.

3-4 slices turkey breast, 2-3 slices whole bread, mustard, lettuce, 2 low fat cheese, A fruit

Lunch

1:00 p.m.

2 cups pasta, 1 cup broccoli, 6 oz. lean ground beef

Midday Snack

3:00 p.m.

2 slices whole wheat bread, ½ avocado, ½ can albacore tuna

Pre- workout

5:00 p.m.

2 slices whole wheat bread, 20 g protein shake (whey or whey/casein) with 3-5 g creatine,  1-3 g HMB, 3-5 g creatine

Post- workout

5:30 p.m.

20-40 g of protein shake(whey or whey/casein) with 3-5 g of creatine, 32 oz. sports drink, 1-3 g HMB, 3-5 g creatine

Dinner

7:30 p.m.

8 oz. chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli, baked sweet potato(large)

Bedtime

10:30 p.m.

1 cup low fat cottage cheese, 2-3 tbsp. peanut butter, 1-3 g HMB

Also note the following -- In case you are not gymming, cut out the calories mentioned here as you probably will never burn them off.

  • Drink a full glass each of water after waking up in the morning, about 15 minutes before each meal, and before and after workouts. DO NOT drink water DURING meals. Try to drink more than 1.5 litres of water every day.
  • Break up your meals into five or more mini meals. For those wanting to shed some pounds, limit each meal to 300 calories for women and 400 calories for men. Breakfast within 30 min after waking up. Plan your meals in such a way that your routine life is not compromised, you stay fresh and energetic throughout the day and you don’t rush for fast food.
  • The key is to increase the intake of protein and complex carbohydrates without increasing fat. Forget the pastries, cakes, burgers, pizza and fries. For an intense workout with weights, try a high protein diet. Whey powder, meat, chicken, eggs, skimmed toned milk, cheese, yogurt, soy milk are rich in protein. These help build muscle mass. Starch rich foods like bread, rice, chapattis, parathas etc. are best before exercise. Post workout, it is best to stick to fruit juices, smoothies and other simple sugar containing food like fruits, bananas etc. All carbohydrates are converted to glucose in the body before any energy can be derived from them. Save your body some effort by eliminating this tiresome process after a grueling gym routine.
  • Write down in your diary any new tips you learnt, any new exercises that you tried and whatever resolutions you want to make for your fitness routine. Track what you eat and the amount of calories it is likely to contain. Put it on paper. This will help you to burn off what you took in.

I think this will help you all..

It is not good to use medicine for small reasons. It leads to some other problems. It has a chance to effect to side effects. Better to change the friend circle. Or make a very good friend with another one. Spend most of the time with remaining friends they are not related to him. Develop a very good new friends. Talk some of them. Who may have a positive opinion on you. Express your all internal feelings and problems with family members and close friends. Do not be alone. Develop a very good busy schedule. Visit remaining friends homes or relatives homes etc. Visit temples, parks or very new places. If it is possible better to change the place. Spend most of the time in happy mood. Better to remove his memories in your books. Do not think his name and others. Give suggestions that I am always well and I have no problems. Feel always confident and comfortable manner. Be sociable and be happy. Ok all the best.

Avoid over use of the chlorhexidine mouthwash.
Use only by advice of the dentist. Over use alter the microbial flora of mouth. This result in black spot on tongue.

MBBS; M.S.
Gynaecologist, Sri Ganganagar
Risk of bleeding is more specially after 28 weeks. So keep precautions. Don't do heavy work, avoid sex, remain always in touch with your gyno. Go to Hospital even after slight bleeding. Get scan as and whenever required. Have full faith on your gyno. Choose a gyno with good hospital setup with 24 hrs availability etc. And having blood transfusion ,operating facilities. Better to keep 1- 2 units of blood donated in blood bank and keep the donor card your blood group and other investigation report in hands. If you remain aware you will face no problem and your pregnancy will remain safe and uneventful.

Hello. Me and my gf wants to have sex bt her vagina is so tight as she is still virgin so I'm not able to put my penis inside her pussy so give Me some advice how to make her hole loose and we can enjoy. Thanks

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Vagina too tight The vagina itself is never too small to accommodate a penis – remember that its walls are stretchy enough to allow a full-sized baby to pass along it. But it can seem too small for sex if the muscles at its entrance go into a spasm when your partner tries to insert his penis. This is a fairly rare condition called vaginismus. Some women with vaginismus can insert a tampon without any problem, but others find that trying to insert anything – a tampon, a finger or a penis – makes the muscles contract. Women with vaginismus often avoid having cervical smears, because they think it will be painful or impossible. Very occasionally, the penis cannot be inserted because the hymen (which is the membrane at the entrance to the vagina) is unusually tough, but this is very rare indeed. How the woman feels. Vaginismus is a very distressing condition. It is very painful if your partner attempts to push his way in, and you may feel wary that he may do this. You may also have feelings of anger, guilt and inadequacy, and fear that your partner may leave you. Some women withdraw from all physical contact – even holding hands – in case it leads to sex. How the partner feels. Partners are usually confused and worried. Your partner will hate the idea of causing you any pain. He may think that his sexual technique is at fault. What causes vaginismus? It is really a deep-rooted phobia of penetration, and perhaps of pregnancy or childbirth. The reason is different for each woman: it can result from some unresolved sexual conflict, from sexual abuse or from a belief that sexual activity is undesirable. You may have had a painful vaginal condition that has left you with a conditioned fear of sex. Vaginismus should not be confused with frigidity; women with vaginismus are often sexually responsive, but can not tolerate penetration. Treatment. Vaginismus can be helped. Relate, the counselling organization, reports that of 3693 women seen over a 2-year period, 80% improved with therapy. Psychosexual counselling. The therapy is not at all frightening. You will be taught how to relax your vaginal muscles and eventually to insert a small tampon. In due course you will learn to insert larger tampons. If you have a partner, the therapist will start by telling you not to attempt sex. Instead, you will be encouraged to resume non-genital physical contact in very small steps, such as holding hands, sitting close together or putting an arm round each other. Quite late in the programme, you and your partner will be shown how you can insert his penis yourself, as if it were a tampon; he lies on his back and is not allowed to move at this stage. Only at the very end of the therapy programme will you be encouraged to have proper sex.

Infertility - Understanding the Reasons Behind it!

Female infertility is not really a rare condition, it happens to one out of six couples. Infertility is a condition in which a woman is unable to conceive despite efforts. There can be a number of causes for female infertility, including problems with ovulation, uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. Age can also be a contributing factor to infertility. Following are the reasons that might be responsible for female infertility

  1. Ovulatory problems
    • Cysts in the ovaries
    • Hormonal imbalance
    • Excessive alcohol or drug usage
    • Eating disorders like bulimia or anorexia
    • Excessive weight
    • Enormous stress and pressure
    • Thyroid gland issues
    • Very brief menstrual cycles
  2. Damage of organs of reproductive system
  3. Pelvic inflammatory disease
  4. Scar tissues or adhesions of some sort
  5. Presence of polyps in the uterus
  6. A previous serious infection in the fallopian tubes or uterus
  7. Chronic medical illness relating to the reproductive system
  8. A previous ectopic pregnancy
  9. A birth defect in the uterus or fallopian tube
  10. The DES syndrome where in the infertility can occur to the offspring due to the medication DES is given to a mother in order to prevent miscarriage or premature of the child.
  11. Abnormal presence of cervical mucus can make it more difficult for sperms to reach the egg.

Treatment
Now that the part about the causes has been discussed, it is essential to discuss the treatment. Are there really ways to reverse infertility in women to make them fertile? Well, in some chronic cases it is not possible; however, some are treatable by the following methods:

  • In the case of hormone imbalance or endometriosis or short menstrual cycles, hormones are taken to treat the problems.
  • Medications can be taken to stimulate ovulations.
  • Fertility enhancing supplements can be used.
  • In case of infection in any of the reproductive parts, antibiotics can be taken to remove them
  • In order to remove blockage or scar tissues from the uterus, fallopian tube or pelvic area, minor surgeries can be performed.

Prevention
Yes, there are some tips for prevention of infertility

  • Taking all the steps required to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Avoid intake of illicit drugs
  • Having regular checkups with the gynaecologist
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Exercising regularly
  • Having a healthy sexual relationship

This article is a short walkthrough on female infertility and answers most of the commonly asked questions. In case you have further questions, you can always consult a medical practitioner near you.
