Effects of Smoking on Body

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Effects of Smoking on Body
  1. Heart: smoking is the biggest risk factor for all heart diseases. It accelerates the process of fat deposition in the inner walls of arteries (atherosclerosis). It increases blood pressure and heart rate. Not only these, smoking increases tendency for the blood to clot. It reduces the capacity of a person to exercise.
  2. Lungs: smoking destroys small hairs present in upper parts of airways. In normal persons these hairs protect lungs from germs, dust and other harmful particles. When this natural cleaning system is damaged germs, dust, smoke and other harmful chemicals enter lungs causing infection, cough and lung cancer. The air sacs of lungs (alveoli) get permanently damaged causing difficulty in breathing.
  3. Digestive system: smoking causes heart burn, delays healing of peptic ulcers, increases risk of crohn’s disease and formation of gall stones. It affects liver and increases chances of stomach cancer.
  4. Legs: smoking affects blood vessels of legs causing chronic pain in legs. This may further progress to cause gangrene of toes or feet.
  5. Eyes: the sensitive blood vessels of eye are easily damaged by smoking. This causes blood shot appearance of eyes and itching. In heavy smokers it may lead to degeneration and loss of eyesight. Smokers are at an increased risk of cataracts.
  6. Skin: due to smoking the skin is deprived of oxygen and it loses its texture. An average smoker looks 5 years older than his healthy non smoking counterparts. The skin loses its healthy glow and takes on a yellowish-gray cast. The more cigarettes smoked, the worse skin will look. Wrinkles start appearing very quickly as smoking affects elastic tissues of skin.
  7. Bones: it accelerates the process of osteoporosis
  8. Cancer: smoking causes cancer of lungs, larynx, oral cavity, pharynx, oesophagus and bladder. Tobacco smoke contains more than 60 substances which cause cancer. 87% lung cancer death occurs due to smoking.
  9. Reproductive system: smoking reduces fertility in both men and women.
  10. In women: smoking imbalances estrogen hormone in women. It causes dryness of vagina and reduces blood flow to genital organs. Women who smoke can get diseases of fallopian tubes and their egg production is affected. Smoking can cause abortion. It accelerates aging process and can cause early menopause.
  11. The growth of baby retards when mother smokes in pregnancy. It affects the brain development of baby and reduces iq. This happens even when mother is a passive smoker. The chances of miscarriage, premature birth and fetal death increase.
  12. In men: smoking impairs erections and can become a reason for erectile dysfunction. It also reduces sperm count and impairs sperm motility. But these are reversed after stopping smoking.

Hence quit smoking. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Your present scenario was brought on by the seperation. That is quite normal with everyone. Don't worry. Just do your normal work and don; t try to justify yourself for the break up. Learn to blame yourself. Slowly you will regain your normal thoughts. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Dear Dr, I am 73 years young but getting older due to depression caused by my son 30 yrs but drug addict since 7 years and till now i have spent most of my savings in his rehab expenditure , Now i think i should expell him from my responsibility , but am afraid once he is out of rehab he may become a criminal , THis is the cause of my constant worry and my family( Wife ) depression. Please help me with practical solution

You will need to stick by your son because he has a disease of horrible consequences. Something went wrong somewhere in his life and while it is easy to blame him, he needs all your help and support. There is a good rehabilitation center in Bangalore who will keep him for however long it takes to cure him. The financial expenditure is very reasonable. This is the best under the circumstances. It is true that he could resort to crime, and worse still he may cause you grievous harm, if he is not fully cured. He obviously does not have his own resources, so he needs your support. If you are agreeable, kindly contact me for the center details.

I am a very heavy smoker and lover and drinker so kindly help me to come out from this.`

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Three years ago you were in late adolescence and obviously that it the last time some unresolved childhood issue will surface looking for a resolution. I feel that you need to go for counseling and explore what that issue is: I suspect from your description that it has to do with some rejection. The loss of affect may have to do with a defense against dealing with feelings. Kindly explore this with the counselor and you will find a lot of relief.

The main problem is fear and the stress it causes. Dreaming during the day is sometimes an escape from facing the reality. If the fear is too much you will need to meet with a counselor and deal with the fear. Once you calm down you can study better and will remember what you studied also well. One way to reduce stress in an emergency is to puff up your cheek with air pressure and hold it for about ten counts. The back pressure it creates presses the back of your throat where the vagus nerve is present. Because of this pressure it will immediately slow down your heart rate and calm you down since the vagus nerve is directly connected to the heart. If the stress comes back then repeat it until it gives up. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

My relative is suffering from wiered issue. She is washing her hand every time. She don't want to touch wall also. She is feeling that this is dirty. Is there any possiblity to recover from this issue?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is called ocd or obsessive-compulsive disorder. The obsession is a repeated thought pattern that is not productive and it leads to a repeated action behavior that is compulsive and also non-productive. The person will usually believe that if the behavior is repeated a certain number of times, the problem will disappear. In some people it can be quite crippling. So if it has not reached serious proportions take her to meet with a counselor to resolve the same. The ocd is founded on fear, and the compulsive behavior is magically believed to resolve the same. The counselor will help her identify the fear and help her deal with it in healthy and normal ways. She must be cooperative and very communicative for any success. The therapy may be for long-term and so she has to be patient and never drop out thinking that she is done with it. Let the counselor decide that with her. You must also involve her parents in all this. If the counselor thinks it is serious enough that medication is required, that person will send her to a psychiatrist. Whatever happens do not discontinue the therapy until she feels completely out of this problem. Her particular problem is a fear of infection: the fetish is about cleanliness and germs, which is in fact all over the place and cannot be completely eradicated except in very sterile surroundings. Our immune system can quite easily handle it but if she is stressed by the fear, she can in fact become infected due to lowered immunity, and will not know it or accept it anyway.

You are programming yourself to get disturbed by fearing something that can easily be checked medically. Go and see a doctor and confirm for yourself whether you are having a heart problem. It is true, however, that you can give yourself a heart problem by mere suggestion and belief that you have one. Your stress may be causing all the gastric problem too. A gastric problem can sometimes feel like a heart attack. Apart from that you must keep yourself physically fit by regular aerobic exercise, get adequate rest, eat healthily, and be emotionally stable. If you need any help for this you should meet with a cousnelor and get the support and understanding that will go a long way to alliviate your problems, once and for all.

Hi sir, I m very depressed for quite a long time. Due to marriage issues, it is affecting my overall health n m jobless right now, it seems from everywhere I m kind of trapped, don't know what to do where to go . What should i do for coping up with this low time and depressed? Thanks plz

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
That can be very tough if you are feeling trapped everywhere, Out of job is another issues that you mentioned. Job brings financial security and self respect along with satisfaction. Marriage also helps in feeling secure and desire of love and companionship gets taken care of. Bringing up children is yet another aspect which can be very satisfying for some people. Yet if you are not getting these expectations met, then it can be very disappointing and depressing for some people. I would suggest to you strongly that you approach a counsellor first who will also refer you to a psychiatrist if necessary, and if there is clinical depression, then you take meds from the psychiatrist.
