Hi, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, which is also called menorrhagia, can occur to any menstruating woman. It can also cause serious health problem such as iron-deficiency anemia. In order to stop heavy menstrual bleeding naturally, you can try different types of home remedies and making changes to your diet. Home remedies: -cinnamon, which you may use in cooking or baking, is also a well-known spice that may provide relief from heavy bleeding. Incorporate more cinnamon into your diet or take it alone to help calm the uterus and prevent heavy bleeding. Try mixing one cup of hot water with three teaspoon of powdered cinnamon and take it every thirty minutes during your menstrual cycle. -wash 2 cups of raspberry leaves and bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Strain and enjoy one cup up to three times a day. -placing an ice pack on your abdomen may reduce bleeding (no more than 20 minutes). It may also alleviate pain and swelling. -choose healthy and nutrient dense foods such as proteins including nuts, iron rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, and dairy products like yogurt or cheese for calcium. Green beans contain high fiber and are enriched with vitamin b, which prevents abdominal cramps. Choose breads and grains that are fortified with iron, vitamin b, fiber and protein. Eat vegetables such as broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, and spinach to help you get iron, calcium, and vitamin c. Eat fruits such as oranges and strawberries for vitamin c. Prunes and dried apricots are a good source of iron. Medication: take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly during the menses. And for rest of the days, take five phos. And alfaalfa tonic. Take them thrice daily for 4 weeks and revert me back. Even after taking these medication, if there is no relief in the sufferings, need to get an ultrasound (pelvis) done.

Spinach Benefits Side Effects in Hindi - पालक के फायदे व नुकसान

Spinach Benefits Side Effects in Hindi - पालक के फायदे व नुकसान

पालक एक पत्तेदार सब्जी है, जो कि अमरांथेशीय परिवार का हिस्सा है और स्थानीय रूप से मध्य और दक्षिण-पूर्व एशिया में पाया जाता है। पालक प्राचीन फारस में पैदा हुआ था और अरब व्यापारियों द्वारा भारत में लाया गया था। वास्तव में, हेमॉरेज से उबरने के लिए फ्रांसीसी सैनिकों की आवश्यकता को पूरा करने के लिए प्रथम विश्व युद्ध में इसका इस्तेमाल किया गया था।
यह फोलेट, नियासिन, विटामिन ए, विटामिन बी 6, विटामिन सी जैसे विटामिन का अच्छा स्रोत है। हमारे शरीर में विभिन्न प्रतिक्रियाओं में उपयोग किया जाने वेल, थाइमिन और राइबोफ्लेविन सहित अन्य महत्वपूर्ण तत्व भी पालक में पाए जाते हैं। पालक बीटा कैरोटीन, ल्यूटिन, एक्सटेंनी, और क्लोरोफिलिन जैसे पिगमेंट्स में भी समृद्ध है।
 

पालक के लाभ
पालक के विभिन्न स्वास्थ्य लाभों में निम्न शामिल हैं:
1. दृष्टि के लिए: 
पालक बीटा कैरोटीन, ल्यूतियन और एक्सटेंनी का एक समृद्ध स्रोत है, जो सभी दृष्टि के लिए फायदेमंद होते हैं। बीटा कैरोटीन लोगों को विटामिन ए की कमी, खुजली वाली आँखें, आंखों के अल्सर और सूखी आंखों को रोकने में मदद कर सकता है।
2. उम्र से संबंधित आख की मैक्यूला का व्यपजनन (ए.एम.डी): ए।एम।डी या रेटिनिटिस पिगमेंटोसा अंधापन पैदा करने के लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। पालक की खपत के कारण दो महत्वपूर्ण रंजकों को पुनः प्राप्त हो सकता है - ल्यूटेन और एक्सैन्ने और प्रभावी रूप से एएमडी को रोका जा सकता है। पालक एंटीऑक्सिडेंट्स में भी समृद्ध है जो मुक्त कणों के हानिकारक प्रभावों को कम करता है।
3. न्यूरोलॉजिकल (स्नायविक) लाभ: पोटेशियम, फोलेट और विभिन्न एंटीऑक्सिडेंट जैसे पालक के कई घटक न्यूरोलॉजिकल बेनिफिट प्रदान करने के लिए जाने जाते हैं। मस्तिष्क की स्वास्थ्य के लिए पोटेशियम भी आवश्यक है क्योंकि इससे मस्तिष्क में रक्त के प्रवाह को बढ़ाने में मदद मिलती है। यह उच्च अनुभूति, एकाग्रता और तंत्रिका गतिविधि से भी संबंधित है।
4. मांसपेशियों में ताकत के लिए: पालक में, कारक सी C0-Q10, जो एक एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है, मांसपेशियों को मजबूत करने में विशेष भूमिका निभाता है, खासकर हृदय की मांसपेशियाँ। 
5. रक्तचाप को बनाए रखने के लिए: पालक में मौजूद पोटेशियम और सोडियम रक्तचाप को बनाए रखने में सहायता करता है। पालक में उपस्थित फोलेट उच्च रक्तचाप की कमी के लिए योगदान देता है और उचित रक्त प्रवाह बनाए रखते हुए रक्त वाहिकाओं को आराम देता है। 
6. अस्थि खनिजकरण: पालक वाइटमिन के का एक अच्छा स्रोत है, जो हड्डी मैट्रिक्स में कैल्शियम को बनाए रखने में कार्य करता है, जिससे हड्डी खनिज होता है। 
इसमें मौजूद अन्य खनिज मैंगनीज, तांबा, मैग्नीशियम, जस्ता और फास्फोरस भी मजबूत हड्डियों के निर्माण और ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस जैसे रोगों को रोकने में मदद करते हैं।
7. गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर को रोकने के लिए: पालक में पेट के श्लेष्म झिल्ली की रक्षा करने की क्षमता होती है, जिससे गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर होने की रोकथाम होती है। इसके अलावा, पालक में पाए जाने वाले ग्लाइकोसिलेक्लिपिड्स पाचन तंत्र की परत की ताकत को बढ़ा सकते हैं, जिससे शरीर के उस हिस्से में किसी भी अवांछित सूजन को रोकने में मदद मिलती है।
8. एथ्रोस्केलेरोसिस (धमनीकलाकाठिन्य) को रोकता है: एथ्रोस्क्लेरोसिस धमनियों के अकड़ने के कारण होता है। पालक में पाए जाने वाले ल्यूटन से एथीरोस्क्लेरोसिस, दिल के दौरे और स्ट्रोक की घटना को कम करने में मदद मिलती है।
9. भ्रूण विकास: भ्रूण के तंत्रिका तंत्र के समुचित विकास के लिए पालक में पाए जाने वाले फोलेट आवश्यक हैं। जबकि पालक में पाए जाने वाले विटामिन ए फेफड़ों के विकास में मदद करता है।
10. सूजन को कम करने के लिए: पालक पूरे शरीर में सूजन को कम करने के लिए सबसे शक्तिशाली सब्जियों में से एक है। यह गठिया और गाउट जैसे रोगों के खिलाफ लड़ाई में भी मदद करता है।
11. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए: पालक में मौजूद विभिन्न फ़यटोनुट्रिएंट्स और पिगमेंट यूवी किरणों सहित सूरज की हानिकारक किरणों से त्वचा को बचाने के लिए सिद्ध है।
 

पालक के दुष्प्रभाव
इस संयंत्र का अत्यधिक सेवन हमारे लिए खतरनाक हो सकता है क्योंकि इसके कुछ संभावित दुष्प्रभाव भी हैं जैसे कि:
1. खनिज अवशोषण में कमी: इसमें ऑक्सालिक एसिड की उच्च मात्रा होती है, जो कि कैल्शियम, मैग्नीशियम, जस्ता आदि जैसे कई आवश्यक खनिज यौगिकों के साथ बाँध करने के लिए जाना जाता है। अतिरिक्त पालक खाने से, हमारे शरीर को अवशोषित करने के लिए इन तत्वों की पर्याप्त मात्रा नहीं मिलती। यह हमारे सिस्टम की सामान्य कार्यक्षमता में बाधा ला सकती है और खनिज की कमी से संबंधित विभिन्न बीमारियों को जन्म देती है।
2. पेट की समस्या: पालक की अतिरिक्त खपत पेट के विकार जैसे पेट की कमी, पेट में सूजन, ऐंठन और यहां तक कि कब्ज भी पैदा हो सकती है। सबसे खराब स्थिति में, आपको हल्के या मध्यम दस्त का अनुभव हो सकता है।
3. पथरी: पालक में प्यूरीन होते हैं जो कि विभिन्न स्वास्थ्य समस्याओं का कारण बना सकते हैं। जब हमारे शरीर में अतिरिक्त मात्रा में डाले जाते हैं, तो वे यूरिक एसिड में परिवर्तित हो जाते हैं जो हमारे गुर्दे के स्वास्थ्य के लिए बेहद खराब है। 
4. एलर्जी: सब्जी में हिस्टामाइन होता है, जिसके कारण कुछ छोटे छद्म एलर्जी प्रभाव पड़ सकते हैं।

Want to lose weight


अगर आप अपने वजन को ले कर काफी सचेत रहती हैं, तो आप को एक बार भोजन में दलिया जरुर ट्राई करना चाहिये। इससे पहले कि हम आपको यह समझाएं कि दलिया किस तरह से वजन को नियंत्रित करती है, उससे पहले हम यह जान लें कि दलिया क्‍या चीज है। दलिया को अंग्रेजी में ब्रोकन वीट भी कहते हैं, जो कि गेंहू को दरदरी पीस कर बनाई जाती है। दलिया में उच्‍च मात्रा में फाइबर, प्राटीन और विटामिन बी पाया जाता है। कुछ लोग वजन कम करने के लिये ओट्स आदि भी खाते हैं। लेकिल उसे खाने से तुरंत ही भूंख लग जाती है। मगर दलिया खाने से आपका पेट लंबे समय तब भरा रहेगा और आपको 2 घंटों तक भूंख भी नहीं लगेगी। मोटापा कम करने के ये कीजिये यह नाश्‍ता आप दलिया को या तो मसाले और सब्‍जियों के साथ पका सकती हैं या फिर उसमें दूध डाल कर मिक्‍स कर सकती हैं। तो चलिये जानते हैं दलिया खा कर कैसे होता है वजन कम?

लो कैलोरी

दलिया में बहुत ही थोड़ी सी कैलोरी पाई जाती है। अगर आप दलिया खाती हैं तो आपको ढेर सारे फाइबर के साथ पोषण भी मिलेगा और आपका वजन भी नहीं बढेगा।

उच्‍च फाइबर

खाने में अगर बहुत सारा फाइबर होता है तो पाचन सही होता है। फाइबर ना तो शक्‍कर में बदलता है और इसलिये यह वेट लॉस में मदद करता है।

आराम से हजम होती है

आप सोंचती होंगी कि जो खाना तुरंत हजम हो जाता है वह शरीर का मोटापा बिल्‍कुल नहीं बढाता? मगर ऐसा नहीं होता, जल्‍दी से हजम हो जाने वाले आहार तुरंत-तुरंत भूंख पैदा कर शरीर में शक्‍कर स्‍टोर करते हैं। ऐसे में दलिया देर से पचने वाला आहार है, जिसे खाने के बाद तुरंत भूंख नहीं लगती।

उच्‍च प्रोटीन युक्‍त

दलिया में उच्‍च प्रोटीन की मात्रा होती है। इसमें मीट की तरह प्रोटीन के साथ वसा नहीं होती। यह सेफ, फैट फ्री है, जिसे आपके भोजन में जरुर शामिल होना चाहिये।

पेट भरने वाला

इसमें उच्‍च मात्रा में रेशा होने के नाते, इसे खाते ही पूरा पेट भर जाता है। इसे खाने के बाद आपको 2 घंटों तक भूख नहीं लगेगी।

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Itchy Scalp

Simple Home Remedies to get rid of itchy scalp

Dry itchy scalp can be a nuisance, especially when you get that itchy feeling in the presence of someone or when white flakes become visible in your hair or on your shoulders. Caused by various reasons such as dandruff, dryness of the scalp, poor care of the hair, viral or fungal infections, poor diet, sebaceous cysts or even stress, itchy scalp can be a big embarrassment. However, you can get rid of this itchy scalp with these simple remedies:

1. Lemon

Lemon has antiseptic properties and proves highly effective in treating itchiness especially the one caused by dandruff.

- Apply lemon juice directly on the scalp for 5-7 minutes and then rinse

- Use diluted lemon juice if you do not have dandruff

- Or you can add yogurt to the lemon juice before applying. Use a mild shampoo to rinse after that.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar can work wonderfully for itchy scalp since it helps to get rid of the fungus and virus that may be the reason for itchiness. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance that also balances the scalp’s pH balance helping to relieve dryness and itching.

- In a spray bottle, take equal amounts of water and vinegar and use it to spray directly on your slightly wet scalp or apply with the help of cotton balls

- Shampoo your hair after some time

3. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel is a good moisturizer and can help you to get rid of itching and dryness of the scalp.

- Rub the gel with your fingers directly on the scalp

- After 10-15 minutes, use a mild shampoo to rinse your hair and scalp

4. Onion Juice with Banana and Honey

Onion juice is a powerful remedy for itching. Honey too works incredibly to get rid of itchiness.

- Add some onion juice along with a mashed ripe banana to 2 tablespoons of honey and mix thoroughly

- Apply on the scalp and let it rest for 20 minutes

- Shampoo your hair afterwards to get rid of the white flakes and itchiness

5. Essential Oils

Essential oils like Eucalyptus, Lavender and Neem also work well for relieving itching of the scalp.

- Mix equal portions of the 3 together and apply on the scalp

- Wash after an hour to get a relaxing feel apart from relief from itching and dryness.

Hello, the most common cause of vulval pruritus is fungal infection. You need to get a swab culture to confirm the diagnosis.

Mam, if husband has bp and sugar, this is not going to disturb wife's pregnancy. If she is healthy. But because these diseases have genetic connection it may carry to child. There are many more factors can cause bp and sugar. So please don't worry about this. 38 years is not unsafe to carry pregnancy, a monitoring may be required.

There are times in a life of a woman when she misses her menses. You may avoid taking too much non-vegetarian food. Take fresh fruits like papaya, grapes, anjeer etc. You may take vegetables like carrot, radish, coriander. You can take aloevera and jaggery too. Take proper sleep and manage your stress level.

Hello usually ovulation does not start after 2 days only. Means if period is over on 20th may & 18th may is around 28 day of cycle. So usually ovulation occurs from 12 to 20 days only. So there is no chance of pregnancy. Just an hormonal imbalance may have cause this. Just take black sesame 3-4 times a day for periods regular. No need to worry do consult thanks.

Common Reasons for Menstrual Disorder

Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Common Reasons for Menstrual Disorder

Menstrual disorders are caused by a variety of factors and affect every woman in a different manner. In most cases, it manifests itself in the form of fluctuations in menstrual flow and irregularity in the monthly cycle. Certain disorders are not too severe and can be easily alleviated.

Some of the most common reasons of menstrual disorders are as follows:

1. Anatomic problems: One fourth menstrual disorders are caused by problems of the anatomy. These include various gynecological issues like the presence of uterine fibroids and polyps, reduced uterine contractile strength, adenomyosis (intrusion of uterine tissue into the muscular wall of the uterus), a uterus with an excessively large surface area, and endometrial cancer.

2. Medications and supplements: There is a wide range of medications and nutritional or hormonal supplements which often cause menstrual disorders in women and lead to fluctuations in the menstrual cycle. These include medicines such as aspirin, ibuprofen, estrogen pills, vitamin E supplements etc.

3. Hormonal imbalance: Fluctuating hormone levels in the body have a direct impact on the menstrual cycle. These fluctuations can be caused by dysfunction in the pituitary gland, thyroid gland or adrenal gland. It can also be a result of malfunction in either or both ovaries and the secretion of hormones originating there.

4. Clotting irregularities: Abnormality in clotting is a cause of heavy menstrual bleeding in women. It leads to exceeding blood loss from minor cuts and gashes and makes one easily prone to bruising. This may also include medical conditions such as thrombocytopenia (platelet dysfunction) and Von Willebrand disease.

5. Miscellaneous factors: These are comparatively rare and require a greater degree of medical attention. It includes conditions such as cervical cancer, ovarian tumors, liver and kidney diseases, uterine infections, extreme psychological stress, obesity, etc. Incidents such as miscarriages and unsuspected pregnancies are also known to cause abnormal menstrual bleeding.

Adult Orthodontics

Adult Orthodontics

Adult orthodontics---An insight
A few decades ago, orthodontic treatment was not frequently undertaken for adult patients but the number of adult patients nowadays receiving orthodontic treatment is increasing day by day. Most of the adults (18-40 years) who have not received orthodontic treatment as children or young adults due to financial restrictions or lack of awareness, now want to seek orthodontic treatment as they have become financially independent and are more aware of their looks. Their main goal is to correct their malocclusion, their smile, appearance & their quality of life.


 Adult orthodontics demand additional skills to bring out the best possible outcome in most of the cases as most adults in both the younger & older groups fairly understand what they want as outcome of the treatment. Although buccal fixed metallic braces are efficient treatment systems, these motivated adult patients have some concerns about the appearance of conventional orthodontic braces. The demand for an invisible orthodontic treatment comes from adults who are concerned about the reaction of others to obvious orthodontic treatment either due to peer pressure, demands of their working atmosphere other constrains. Nowadays, there are 3 main options for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment:

  • Ceramic braces: These are brackets made of tooth colored material placed on the outer side of teeth. They do mask the metallic smile of course, but these are not totally invisible.
  • Lingual orthodontics: These braces are placed on the inner side of teeth, so these are not visible at all but patient need more adjustment time in them due to the close proximity of tongue. These are more technically difficult for the orthodontist to use efficiently orthodontists do need to have special training to master this technique with a long steep learning curve.
  • Clear aligners: These are transparent appliances which are snapped over teeth for treatment. These appliances are efficient effective for non-extraction treatment with mild to moderate malocclusions but still have a long way to go before they can be successfully used to treat difficult malocclusion cases. Further developments in technique technology may overcome these limitations.
  • Summarizing, it can be said that treatment options are numerous. Depending upon the patient’s expectations as well as the financial aspect complications of the case, your orthodontist will suggest you the treatment mode best suited for you. However, its absolutely necessary that patient realizes that the skill competence of a trained certified orthodontist is the most important factor in the success of the treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, you should check for egg reserve first. If it's low then you may have to go for IVF. It will be better if you share images of ultrasound and laparocsopy so that I can guide you further.
