यूरिन इनफैक्शन को यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इनफैक्शन (यूटीआई) भी कहते हैं। ज्यादातर ये समस्या महिलाओं में पाई जाती है। ये समस्या वयस्कों की अपेक्षा बच्चों में ज्यादा देखी जाती है। वहीं अगर ये समस्या बच्चों को हो जाए तो ज्यादा गंभीर होती है। बच्चों में ये समस्या बिस्तर गीला करने की वजह से हो जाती है। अपने जीवनकाल में चालीस फीसदी महिलाओं और बारह फीसदी पुरुषों में ये समस्या देखी जा सकती है। गर्भवती महिलाओं में ये संक्रमण काफी सामान्य होता है। जब एक महिला बच्चे को जन्म देती है तो उसके प्रेग्नेंसी हॉर्मोन का विकास शरीर के अंदर होता है, और इसके फलस्वरूप उसके यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट में भी काफी परिवर्तन होते हैं। जैसे ही किसी महिला का गर्भाशय बढ़ता है, यह ब्लैडर पर अतिरिक्त दबाव डालने लगता है। इससे ब्लैडर से पूरी तरह मूत्र का निकलना संभव नहीं हो पाता है। जो मूत्र ब्लैडर के अंदर बच जाता है, उससे संक्रमण की प्रबल संभावना रहती है। । अगर आप इस इन्फेक्शन को शुरूआती चरणों में नहीं रोक पाती तो इससे किडनी में भी इन्फेक्शन की संभावना बढ़ जाती है।
ऐसे पहचानें यूरिन इनफैक्शन- यहां दिए गए कुछ लक्षणों से आप पहचान कर सकते हैं कि कहीं आप भी यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन के शिकार तो नहीं हो गए...
- पेशाब करते वक्त जलन या दर्द होना
- बार-बार पेशाब लगना
- खुजली होना
- बदबूदार पेशाब होना
- पेशाब का कलर बदलना
- पीठ के नीचे हिस्से में दर्द
यूरिन इनफैक्शन के कारण- यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन का सबसे बड़ा कारण कॉमन टायलेट का इस्तेमाल करना है। इसके अलावा पेशाब रोकना और पेशाब के बाद सफाई न रखने से भी इन्फैक्शन हो जाता है। बेहतर होगा कि टॉयलेट हमेशा साफ सुधरा रखें, पेशाब रोके नहीं और और पब्लिक कमोड का जितना हो सके कम इस्तेमाल करें। इसके अलावा अंडरगार्मेंट्स और प्राइवेट पाट्र्स की सफाई का भी ध्यान रखें। कभी-कभी सेक्स की वजह से भी बैक्टीरिया महिलाओं के मूत्रमार्ग में पहुंच जाते हैं।
यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन बैक्टीरिया से होता है। डॉक्टर इस बीमारी में एंटीबायोटिक देते हैं जिससे बैक्टीरिया में प्रतिरोधक क्षमता आ जाती है जिससे दवाएं बेअसर होने लगती हैं। यहां दिए गए ये घरेलू उपाय अपनाकर इस समस्या का निदान किया जा सकता है।
अपनाएं ये घरेलू उपाय
ज्यादा से ज्यादा तरल पदार्थों का सेवन करें- पूरे दिन में ज्यादा से ज्यादा तरल पदार्थ लेने से आपके सिस्टम से बैक्टीरिया बाहर होते हैं। तांबे के बर्तन में रातभर पानी रखकर पिएं। तांबे में कीटाणुनाशक गुण होते हैं। ये आपके शरीर से बैक्टीरिया दूर करता है।
अनानास में बेहतरीन एंटी बायोटिक गुण होते हैं, जो कि यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट का इन्फेक्शन दूर करने में काफी प्रभावी होते हैं। अनानास में ब्रोमेलेन नाम का एंजाइम होता है, जो कि यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट के इन्फेक्शन को आसानी से दूर कर देता है। आप या तो नाश्ते में, या फिर दोपहर के खाने के बाद अनानास का फल के रूप में सेवन कर सकती हैं। आप इसे ग्राइंडर में डालकर इसका रस निकालकर पी सकती हैं।
2. बेकिंग सोडा- बेकिंग सोडा शरीर में एसिड और बेस को संतुलित रखता है। यूरिन इन्फैक्शन के लक्षण दिखें तो एक गिलास पानी या दूध में आधा चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा मिलाकर दो बार पिएं।
3.प्याज- प्याज शरीर से टॉक्सिन बाहर करता है। यूरिन इन्फैक्शन होने पर प्याज का सेवन दोनों टाइम सलाद के रूप में करें।
4. छाछ- छाछ शरीर से बैक्टीरिया बाहर निकालने के साथ यूरिन इन्फैक्शन के दौरान होने वाली जलन को भी दूर करता है।
5. करौंदे का जूस- यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन में करौंदे के जूस को अचूक उपाय माना जाता है। आपको करौंदा पसंद हो तो उसे कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं। इसका जूस निकालकर इसमें सेब का जूस मिलाकर पीने से इनफैक्शन में काफी राहत मिलती है।
6. हरी इलायची- यूरिनरी इन्फैक्शन के दौरान मूत्रमार्ग पर बेहद जलन होती है। इसके उपचार के लिए ठंडे दूध के साथ इलायची का पाउडर लें। इसके अलावा कच्ची इलायची भी खाने के बाद खा सकते हैं।
7. ब्लूबेरी- ब्लूबेरी में बैक्टीरिया को पूरी तरह नष्ट करने के गुण होते हैं। हाल में ही हुए एक शोध के अनुसार ब्लूबेरी का रस गर्भवती महिलाओं में यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट का इन्फेक्शन रोकने में मदद करता है। आप सुबह के नाश्ते में भी इस फल का रस के रूप में सेवन कर सकती हैं।
8. सिट्रस फ्रूट या खट्टे फल खाएं- सिट्रस फ्रूट जैसे, नींबू, संतरा, आंवला और मौसमी जैसे फलों में मौजूद साइट्रिक एसिड यूरिन में इनफैक्शन क्रिएट करने वाले बैक्टीरिया को नष्ट करता है।

Apple cider vinegar is a kitchen ingredient with a multitude of uses, from home remedy to DIY fruit fly trap. It is made from apple cider that is fermented with yeast and bacteria.
While emerging research suggests that apple cider vinegar (also known as ACV) may offer certain benefits, it’s touted as a solution for everything from pimples to a sore throat. Some remedies might help, but others can be harmful if used incorrectly.
Here are the top uses and benefits of apple cider vinegar:
1. Help Control Blood Sugar and Prevent Diabetes
Acetic acid, the main component of all types of vinegar, appears to block enzymes that help you digest starch, resulting in a smaller blood sugar response after starchy meals such as pasta or bread. A study published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism in 2010, for instance, found that adding vinegar to a high-starch meal helps to decrease fluctuations in blood sugar after the meal.
Although you can add a splash of apple cider vinegar in salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, and sauces, be sure to consult your doctor if you’re considering using it in larger amounts for diabetes. There haven’t been the clinical trials needed to confirm that it’s effective and you could be putting yourself at risk if you delay or avoid treatment.
If you take diabetes medication, vinegar could cause unwanted effects, like low blood sugar or potassium.
Also, you shouldn’t use apple cider vinegar if you have gastroparesis, as it can further slow gastric emptying.
2. Aid in Weight Loss
If you’re trying to lose weight, apple cider vinegar is sometimes said to help. While preliminary research suggests that vinegar may increase fat oxidation, a study found that the effect appears to be very modest (one to two pounds total weight loss in 12 weeks).
People tend to consume greater than normal amounts of apple cider vinegar when using it for weight loss, with some even taking it in tablet form. There’s a risk that pills can injure the gastrointestinal tract. According to one report, for instance, a woman had an ACV tablet lodged in her throat for 30 minutes and developed pain and tenderness in the throat area and difficulty swallowing that lasted for six months.
3. Get Rid of Dandruff
For pesky dandruff, some people find that lightly spritzing an apple cider vinegar and water solution onto the scalp (and leaving it for 15 minutes before rinsing) helps with persistent flakes, itchiness, and irritation. It’s typically used once or twice a week.
Vinegar’s acetic acid may alter the scalp’s pH, making it harder for yeast (one of the main contributors to dandruff) to grow.
Just don’t get apple cider vinegar in your eyes or ears. Use eye protection if needed, and use it in very small amounts. If you have color-treated hair, consult your color technician as it may alter your color.
4. Stop Itchy Bug Bites and Stings
If you have mosquito bites, poison ivy, or jellyfish stings, a weak apple cider vinegar solution dabbed onto bites and stings may help.
5. Freshen Hair in Between Washings
If you’re between hair washings or are active, spritzing some apple cider vinegar solution on your roots may help control the oil. Experts recommend adding five drops of apple cider vinegar to five ounces of water in a spray bottle and spritzing your roots several times, one or two times a week.
Be careful not to get it on your face, eyes, or ears. If your hair is color-treated, it’s a good idea to consult your colorist before using it.
Although apple cider vinegar is sometimes recommended as a hair rinse to remove shampoo build-up and clarify dull hair, the solution has to very dilute because it is harder to prevent it from getting in your face, eyes, and delicate skin area when washing it out at home.
6. Relieve Minor Sunburns
While the more common recommendation for a mild sunburn is a cool water compress or bath, aloe gel, or moisturizer, some people swear by apple cider vinegar. It can be added to a cool bath or mixed with cool water and lightly spritzed on affected areas (avoiding the face) to relieve pain and discomfort.
Apple cider vinegar shouldn’t be applied at full strength or in strong concentrations to the skin, as the acidity can further injure skin. It also shouldn’t be used for more serious burns, so be sure to consult your health care provider for help in determining the severity of your sunburn.
7. Clear Acne and Pimples
Apple cider vinegar may help to dry out pimples when a solution is dabbed onto pimples. It should be diluted before applying it to the face as it can cause skin injury or chemical burns if it’s not dilute enough.
Although apple cider vinegar is suggested as a skin toner, it isn’t recommended because the acetic acid concentration in ACV varies widely.
8. Soothe a Sore Throat
A time-honored throat elixir, apple cider vinegar drinks and gargles are said to alleviate the pain of a sore throat. Although there are many different recipes and protocols, a basic drink recipe calls for a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, a teaspoon of honey, and a small pinch of cayenne pepper stirred in a cup of warm water.
Although some proponents claim that apple cider vinegar has germ-fighting properties and capsaicin in hot peppers alleviates pain, there hasn’t been any research on apple cider vinegar’s ability to fight sore throats.
Some sources recommend a stronger solution or even taking apple cider vinegar by the spoonful, however the acidity may cause mouth and throat irritation or chemical burns.
While most sore throats are minor, if you have other symptoms or are concerned, you should contact your health care provider.
9. Ease Heartburn and Indigestion
Apple cider vinegar is said to ease some types of heartburn, acid reflux, and digestive conditions like constipation or diarrhea. For heartburn, apple cider vinegar is thought to work because it is acidic, and too little stomach acid is believed to cause heartburn in some people.
Still, the more widely used heartburn diet involves reducing acidic foods, so it's a good idea to speak with your health care provider before trying it.
While some sources recommend taking it by the spoonful, apple cider vinegar's acidity may result in mouth, throat, or esophageal irritation or burns. A more moderate guideline would be to have an amount you would normally eat in a meal (typically one teaspoon or less) diluted in one cup of water or taken in food.
10. Cure Hiccups
To stop hiccups, proponents suggest eating one teaspoon of sugar with several drops of apple cider vinegar added to the sugar. The sugar’s grainy texture and the vinegar’s sour taste may trigger nerves in the throat and mouth responsible for controlling the hiccup reflex.
If hiccups are a regular occurrence for you, be sure to see your doctor. You don’t want to regularly rely on added sugar in your diet to get rid of hiccups. Also, hiccups can be a sign of an underlying condition, like GERD or a hiatal hernia.
11. Get Rid of Fruit Flies
Apple cider vinegar is made from fermented apple cider, and fruit flies are attracted to the smell of ripe, fermented food. To trap fruit flies, put some apple cider vinegar in a small, shallow dish, add a drop of dish soap, and set it out on the counter near your fruit bowl, garbage can, or sink. The fruit flies will fly to the vinegar and the dish soap breaks the surface tension, trapping them.
Be sure to label the dish and keep the solution out of the reach or children or pets.
12. Stamp Out Foot Odor
To help keep smelly feet under control, try using apple cider vinegar, which proponents claim may help to balance the skin’s pH and fight the bacteria that causes foot odor. Typically, a bit of apple cider vinegar is mixed into water. Baby wipes, cotton balls or pads, small towels, or cotton rags can be dipped into the solution, wrung out, and used to wipe the bottom of the feet. Wipes can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container.
Although a vinegar scent will be noticeable, it should dissipate when the vinegar solution is dried. Avoid wearing shoes made from materials that could be damaged by the acidity (like leather).
13. Swap Out Your Deodorant
An apple cider vinegar solution may help to neutralize odor-causing armpit bacteria. Typically, cotton pads, towelettes, or cotton rags are lightly spritzed with a very weak solution and swiped in the armpits. Any vinegar smell should dissipate as it dries.
It's a good idea to test it in a smaller area first and to avoid using it if you're wearing delicate fibers, like silk.
14. Clean Countertops and Other Home Surfaces
Although an apple cider vinegar solution is sometimes suggested for cleaning kitchen and bathroom countertops, mirrors, windows, toilets, and showers, white distilled vinegar is the more popular choice and is less expensive.
If you’re using any type of vinegar solution at home, don’t mix it with commercial cleaners as it can produce harmful chemicals when combined. Also, vinegar shouldn’t be used on certain surfaces, like marble, wood, or some types of grout. If you’re not sure of whether it’s safe to use, consult the manufacturer (or avoid using it altogether).
Types of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is available filtered or unfiltered. Filtered apple cider is a clear light brown color. Unfiltered and unpasteurized ACV (such as Bragg's apple cider vinegar) has a dark, cloudy sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Known as "mother of vinegar" or simply "the mother," this sediment consists mainly of acetic acid bacteria.
Apple cider vinegar is also available in tablet form. A 2005 study, however, compared eight brands of apple cider vinegar supplements and found that the ingredients didn't correspond to the ingredients listed on the label. What's more, chemical analysis of the samples led researchers to question whether any of the products were actually apple cider vinegar or simply acetic acid.
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Although most suggested uses involve diluting apple cider vinegar before applying it to body, the safety of different vinegar-to-water ratios isn't known. A 1:10 ratio has been suggested when applying it directly to skin, however, it should be weaker (or avoided entirely) on weak or delicate skin.
Although a teaspoon to a tablespoon mixed into 8 ounces of water is often suggested as a reasonable amount for internal use, the safety of various doses isn’t known.
You can try to use it highly diluted, but the amount of acetic acid in commercial apple cider vinegar varies (unlike white vinegar, which is 5 percent acetic acid) making it impossible to be sure of the true strength.
Side Effects and Safety
- Apple cider vinegar is a popular household ingredient, which may lead you to believe that it's completely safe. While there may be no cause for alarm if you are generally healthy, there are some potential effects to be aware of, particularly if the concentration is too strong or is in contact with your body for too long.
- Apple cider vinegar, for instance, may cause chemical burns. There have been case reports of chemical burns after apple cider vinegar was used for warts and a skin condition known as molluscum contagiosum.
- Although apple cider vinegar is widely touted as a home remedy to whiten teeth or freshen breath, exposing your teeth to the acidity may erode tooth enamel and lead to cavities.
- When taken internally, ACV may result in decreased potassium levels, hypoglycemia, throat irritation, and allergic reactions. It is an acid (a pH less than 7 is an acid, and many apple cider vinegars have a pH of 2 to 3) and can cause burns and injury to the digestive tract (including the throat, esophagus, and stomach), especially when taken undiluted or in large amounts.
- A case report linked excessive apple cider vinegar consumption with low blood potassium levels (hypokalemia) and low bone mineral density.
- Apple cider vinegar may interact with certain medications, including laxatives, diuretics, blood thinners, and heart disease and diabetes medications.
- If you’re considering using apple cider vinegar for any health purpose, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider to see if it’s right for you, rather than self-treating and avoiding or delaying standard treatment. People with certain conditions (such as ulcers, hiatal hernia, Barrett’s esophagus, or low potassium) may need to avoid apple cider vinegar entirely.
- Apple cider vinegar shouldn’t be used as a nasal spray, sinus wash, or in a neti pot, and it shouldn’t be added to eye drops. Vinegar won't help in the treatment of lice.
A Word From Verywell
- A splash of apple cider vinegar can brighten many dishes (not just salads) and add wonderful flavor to your cooking.
- There are many anecdotal uses and some preliminary evidence suggesting that it may help certain conditions. While you might find that you benefit from its properties, large-scale clinical trials are needed before it can be recommended as a treatment.
- If you’re still considering trying it, be sure to speak with your health care provider first and remember to only use it in small, highly diluted amounts.

Marriages in our country usually last a lifetimeand and require effort from both parties involved to make them work. Often, marriages end because of boredom, as the partners begin to believe that the spark is gone. But there are many ways couples can perk up their marriage.
While it is true that many people are short on precious time in today’s day and age, what is also true is that a marriage is well worth some prioritisation.
Leaving dirty dishes in the sink for a little while longer does make good sense, if it means that the time is well-used to bond with one’s significant other. Leisure time spent between couples is crucial for the success of a marriage. Many couples do not make it a habit of listening to each other and this really does work to their detriment. Paying close attention to what the other one says and providing a response may not need a lot of effort but the dividends are rich in the form of the partner feeling good.
Intimacy is a valued feeling of being wanted and it has a big part to play in the success of a marriage. Over the long term, many couples do not make the required effort and the overall quality of their bond is reduced, as a result. While reinitiating contact may be as simple as holding the other’s hand, many people do not do this as they feel their partner should be the one to do so. Intimacy does not only equate to sexual intimacy, but can even simply be looking into one’s partners eyes with love.
Laughter is said to be the best medicine, and this happens to be true in the case of a marriage, as well. It has been found that couples who laugh about their past experiences are happier and get along a lot more amicably than those who do not. Recalling together where the couple first met and started seeing each other also has a positive impact as it makes both partners feel valued and thankful about what they have.
Below, are tips that don’t require much—if any—money, time or even hard work!
Engage in a new activity with your partner. Doing novel activities with your partner enables you to re-experience the original emotional state at the beginning of your marriage. In other words, trying something new sparks excitement, producing passion. You can do anything from deep-sea fishing to salsa dancing to hiking a mountain to eating at a different restaurant.
Add the element of mystery or surprise. Both mystery and surprise also mimic the emotional state of a new romance. But it doesn’t mean whisking your wife away to the Mediterranean or surprising your husband with expensive dinners. Here, little gestures also go a long way. Examples include, surprising your wife at work and whisking her away for lunch, or sending a greeting card in the mail.
Do something that kicks up your adrenaline and arousal. Young marriages start out with an adrenaline rush. Your heart races, you get giddy, you’re alert, awake and excited. Arousal-generating activities can include exercising, going on a vigorous hike, and even watching a scary movie. So it’s almost like fooling your brain that the arousal produced to this scary movie (or any other arousing activity) is really due to your marriage, and this helps to perk up the passion.
Take a mini-vacation — just the two of you. Get out of the house for at least one night and two days, somewhere that interests both of you and creates new memories together. You don’t have to go far from home or spend a lot of money. The key is to spend quality time together away from home. Studies show that for women, in particular, getting away is important. They feel more passionate when they’re away from the pressures of their lives. At home, women have a tough time compartmentalizing things. They’re thinking about the laundry, lunch, paying the bills, cleaning the house, and checking things off their mental to-do list.
Touch more often. Touch produces arousal, comfort and support both physiologically and psychologically, and it doesn’t have to be much of a touch. Holding hands on a walk, making sure you give a hug or kiss or embrace daily reminds you that you’re physiologically bonded. When reigniting your relationship, the key is to shake things up consistently. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist. Good luck!
