Hello, I’m Dr Smita Vats and I’m a practising gynaecologist in Gurgaon from over a decade now. Today, we will be talking about the prevention of fractures and bone health protection in women.
Women form the axis of the basic framework of the society and they are the basic pillars of strength of the healthcare network of the family and the society. Yet they tend to neglect their own health in their daily responsibilities of workplace, and the household duties. It is important to know and understand that bone health is to critical to the day to day quality of life as well as the overall health of the individual. There are certain basic differences between the bone metabolism of men and women and it is important to understand those so that you can take proper care of your bones. This is because after puberty the rate of bone deposition and bone strengthening is faster in men as compared to women and the peak bone mass attained at the age of 25 years is more in men as compared to women. Thereafter, the bone’s mass stays constant in men whereas in women, the additional challenges of pregnancy and breast feeding put an added demand of calcium. If proper calcium supplement does not happen during pregnancy and breast feeding, then the extra demands of calcium of the baby are met through the calcium of the body of the mother and that leads to weakening of the bones, ligaments, and joints, later on in life. Moreover, after the age of fifty, after menopause, the rate of bone resorption and development of osteoporosis in women is much faster as compared to men. So all these factors along with certain lifestyle factors which include physical activity, dietary factors, and the other lifestyle modifications like smoking, alcohol intake etc. does hamper the bone health of an individual and should be looked after.
That brings us to the question as to how to look after the bone health of a woman properly?
First and foremost is the dietary and nutritional factor. Calcium and Vitamin D are the most important nutrients which are responsible for the proper bone strength of the body. Calcium intake, at least one thousand to twelve hundred milligrams per day is recommended. It can be achieved through dietary elements like milk and milk products – yogurt, cheese, curd etc. Apart from egg, meat, mutton, chicken, and other vegetarian products like wheat, raggi, soya bean and fruits and vegetables like black grapes, cauliflower, cabbage, beetroot, pistachio, almonds, all are great sources of calcium. It is important to remember that if the dietary factors do not meet eh regular demands of the body for calcium then one should be taking calcium supplements as prescribed by the doctor, especially during pregnancy and breast feeding women should not neglect the intake of calcium during those times. Apart from calcium, the other important aspect is the Vitamin D intake. The daily requirement of Vitamin D is about two hundred to four hundred international units in a day. The main source of Vitamin D is sunlight and as a result, in the urban population when people are not moving around too much in the sun or whenever they go out they are fully covered or using sunscreen. There is a high incidence of Vitamin D deficiency in this population. Apart from this, people who live in higher altitudes, have a dark skin colour, or are obese also have a risk of Vitamin D deficiency. Hence, such people should be taking Vitamin D supplements as subscribed by the doctor and especially vegetarians because the only dietary source of Vitamin D is through cog liver oil, fish, liver so that leaves very few options for the normal vegetarian population to attain Vitamin D through dietary intake.
Then the other aspect which is very important is the physical activity and regular physical exercise. At least half an hour to forty-five minutes of regular physical exercise is a must. To improve blood circulation and bone health and muscle health in the body. This is also important to improve the overall tone and balance of the body so as to prevent falls and fractures and the risks of injury which may hamper the quality of life in her later age groups. Apart from this, smoking, intake of alcohol etc. can also accelerate bone resorption and also deteriorates your bone health. Hence, it is important to look after all these factors.

गठिया रोग को आमवात, संधिवात आदि नामों से भी जाना जाता है। इस रोग में सबसे पहले शरीर में निर्बलता और भारीपन के लक्षण दिखाई देते हैं। इस रोग के होने पर हाथ के बीच की उंगलियों में दर्द होता है। अगर इसका इलाज नही किया जाता तो हाथ की दूसरी उंगलियों में भी सूजन व दर्द होने लगता है। गठिया रोग होने पर शरीर की हडि्डयों में दर्द होता है, जिसके कारण रात को रोगी सो भी नहीं पाता है।
तेज मसालों से बना भोजन (फास्ट फूड), गर्म भोजन, ठंडी चीजों का अधिक सेवन करने से पेट में गैस पैदा होती है जिसके कारण यह रोग उत्पन्न होता है। जब भोजन आमाशय में जाकर अधपचा रह जाता है तो भोजन का अपरिपक्व रस जिसे `आम´ कहते हैं वो त्रिक (रीढ की हड्डी का निचला हिस्सा) की हडि्डयों में जाकर वायु के साथ दर्द उत्पन्न करता है। इसी रोग को गठिया का रोग कहते हैं। चिकित्सकों के अनुसार- यह रोग भोजन के ठीक से पचने से पहले पुन: भोजन कर लेने से, प्रकृति-विरूद्ध पदार्थों को खाने से, अधिक शीतल और वसायुक्त खाद्य-पदार्थों का सेवन करने से उत्पन्न होता है।
गठिया का रोग दांत गन्दे रहना, भय, अशान्ति, शोक, चिन्ता, अनिच्छा का काम, पानी में भीगना, ठंड लगना, आतशक, सूजाक, अधिक स्त्री सहवास (संभोग), ठंडी रूखी चीजें खाना, रात को अधिक जागना, मल-मूत्र के वेग को रोकना, चोट लगना, अधिक खून बहना, अधिक श्रम, मोटापा आदि कारणों से होता है। यह रोग खून की कमी, शारीरिक कमजोरी तथा बुढ़ापे में हड्डियों की चिकनाई कम होने के कारण भी उत्पन्न होता है। इस रोग में दर्द या तो बाएं या दाएं घुटने में अथवा दोनों घुटनों में होता है। रोगी को बैठने के बाद खड़े होने में तकलीफ होती है और रात के समय रोग बढ़ जाता है। सर्दी तथा वर्षा के मौसम में यह रोग दर्द के साथ रोगी को व्याकुल कर देता है एवं चलने-फिरने, उठने-बैठने में तकलीफ पैदा करता है। रोगी के घुटने कड़े हो जाते हैं और उनमें कभी-कभी सूजन भी हो जाती है।
भोजन का अच्छा न लगना, अधिक आलस आना, बुखार से शरीर के विभिन्न अंगों में सूजन, कमर और घुटनों में तेज दर्द जिसके कारण रोगी रात को सो नही पाता है आदि गठिया रोग में होने वाले लक्षण है। इसके अलावा इस रोग में रोगी के हाथ-पांव की अंगुलियों में सूजन होती है जिससे अंगुलियां सीधी नही होती है, शरीर के दूसरे भागों में सूजन व दर्द रहता है। इस रोग के होने पर जोड़ो व मांसपेशियों में दर्द रहता है।
भोजन तथा परहेज :
एक वर्ष पुराने चावल, जंगली पशु-पक्षियों के मांस का सूप, एरण्डी का तेल, पुरानी शराब, लहसुन, करेला, परवल, बैंगन, सहजना, लस्सी, गोमूत्र, गर्म पानी, अदरक, कड़वे एवं भूख बढ़ाने वाले पदार्थ, साबूदाना, तथा बिना चुपड़ी रोटी का सेवन करना गठिया रोग में लाभकारी है। इस रोग में फलों का सेवन और सुबह नंगे पैर घास पर टहलना रोगी के लिए लाभकारी होता है। गठिया रोग में रात को सोते समय एक गिलास दूध में जरा-सी हल्दी डालकर पीने से लाभ मिलता है।
उड़द की पिट्ठी की कचौडी तथा बड़ी मछली, दूध, दही, पानी, गर्म (मसालेदार) भोजन, रात को अधिक देर तक जागना, मल-मूत्र के वेग को रोकना आदि गठिया रोग में हानिकारक है। मूली, केला, अमरूद, कटहल, चावल, लस्सी एवं गुड़ आदि का प्रयोग भी इस रोग में हानिकारक है। इस रोग में रोगी को भूख से एक रोटी कम खानी चाहिए और ठंडी वस्तुओं का सेवन कम करने चाहिए। रोगी को शरीर को अधिक थकाने वाले कार्य नहीं करने चाहिए तथा खाने के बाद बैठकर पढ़ने-लिखने का कार्य भी अधिक नहीं करना चाहिए।

What is betel nut?
- Betel nut is the seed of a type of palm tree.
- It has a long history of being the being chewed for its mood-enhancing effects in many parts of Asia and the Pacific.
- Modern research shows many health risks associated with its use, including oral cancer, an incurable jaw disorder, and reproductive issues.
A deep red or purple smile is a common sight in many parts of Asia and the Pacific.
But what’s behind it?This red residue is the telltale sign of the betel nut, which is chewed by millions of people across the globe. In its most basic form, betel nut is a seed of the Areca catechu, a type of palm tree. It’s commonly chewed after being ground up or sliced and wrapped in leaves of the Piper betel vine that have been coated with lime. This is known as a betel quid. Tobacco or flavorful spices may also be added.
History of a habit
Betel nut has a long history in South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Basin. In Guam and other Pacific islands, its use can be traced back as far as 2,000 years. A habit passed down through generations, chewing betel nut is a time-honored custom for 10–20 percent of the world’s population. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 600 million people use some form of betel nut. It is one of the most popular psychoactive substances in the world, in fourth place after nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine. But while betel nut is an important cultural and social tradition in many countries, growing evidence points to serious health effects from regular use.
Oral cancer and other dangers
A study reports that betel nut users are at a higher risk for oral submucous fibrosis. This incurable condition can cause stiffness in the mouth and eventually the loss of jaw movement. Regular chewing of betel nut can also cause gum irritation and tooth decay. Teeth may become permanently stained deep red or even black.Betel nut may interact with other drugs or herbal supplements. It could cause toxic reactions in the body or reduce the effects of medications.
Medical conditions associated with betel nut use with tobacco:
- oral submucous fibrosis
- oral cancer
- reproductive issues, including low birth weight in newborns

Love and physical intimacy is an important part of one’s daily life. It is a ritual that most of us include in our daily lives. Physical intimacy is the connection that two people form between each other and it is something that keeps that connection going. In many cases, people encounter some sexual problems that can cause an impediment to the sexual journey of the couple together, and as individuals. One of the problems include sexual weakness which can leave a person with a feeling of fatigue and not ready for sexual intercourse. Ayurveda, with its ancient science proposes many ways in which one can explore one’s sexuality and get relief from the problem of sexual weakness.
Vatsayana's Kamasutra is one of the way. Its various sexual positions can help in exploring the sexual and sensual bond between the couple and during that journey a number of problems are repaired. Read on to know more.
History: Mallanaga Vatsayana was a holy sage, who lived in the strictly spiritual sense of the word. He worshipped the divine in both forms that is the female and male. He wrote the Kamasutra in the early 5th Century and it has become a tome of love making with ancient practices that can help couples to connect and heal simultaneously.
Following are some of the positions defined in the Kamasutra, to overcome sexual problems.
Sitting Positions: One of the main positions in this science of love making is the sitting position, which can actually soothe tired muscles of the area so that sexual weakness can be cured. This also gives power and comfort. In this position, it is mostly the woman who astride the man.
Karuma Position: This intimate position is a very sensuous one where the partners face each other. This position helps in fixing the problem of extreme sexual fatigue or weakness, as it allows the couple to bond with each other while touching each other with various parts of the body, which makes for prolonged foreplay. Since this position requires people to control their rhythm and position, it makes for a relaxed environment where sexual weakness can be prevented and repaired.
Dolita Position: This is a position that helps the couples to swing in gentle motion even as they are being physically intimate. It helps in building togetherness as the couples need to sit face to face with each other. The heels are usually locked around each other in this position, which gives ample support to the bodies. This helps in treating sexual weakness as well, as the body is not strained to an overwhelming degree.
Samdamsha Position: With this position, the man gets to sit back in a chair or on a bench, while the woman takes control. In this position, the couple gets to relax and enjoy each other without sexual weakness.
All the above mentioned positions will not only help you getting over the problem of sexual weakness, but also give you an intimate and fulfilling experience.
Further, the exotic fragrances also work wonders when it comes to enhancing the sexual drive and performance. These fragrances work like magic in stimulating the pituitary gland responsible for hormone production. These exotic fragrances help in keeping the pituitary gland in an active state. Some of these scents include lavender, jasmine and patchouli. Lavender is known to increase blood flow to genitals and improve female sensitivity. This enhances sexual experience for both man and woman. Jasmine works wonders for men and women both. It lifts the mood and has been used to fight frigidity, impotence and premature ejaculation for ages.
Aromatherapy is also a century old practices that people are turning to for better sexual and relaxing experience. Cinnamon, sandalwood, lavender, patchouli, coriander, jasmine and cardamom are some of the best aromatherapy oils that help in enhancing sexual experience for men.
If you are looking for natural ways to rev up your sexual libido, Vatsayana Kamasutra has it all. If you wish to enlarge your lingam, you should rub it with the hair of certain insects living in trees. After massaging young lingam with oils for ten nights, you will be required to rub with the hair of insects like before. After following this process, a swelling will gradually be produced in your lingam. This swelling usually lasts for life and is called ‘Suka’.
As mentioned in Vatsayana Kamasutra, the lingam can also be enlarged by massaging it with oil boiled on a medium flame along with the seeds of pomegranate and cucumber, the juices of valuka plant, hasti - charma plant and egg-plant. These remedies also produce a long lasting effect.
Please Tell me what is do and not do in the pregnancy's first 3 month and which diet is taken in these months.
