लहसुन के सेवन के स्वास्थ्य लाभ

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad

कई बार हम ध्यान नहीं देते कि हमारे घर में ही मौजूद कोई चीज़ हमारे लिए कितनी फायदेमंद साबित हो सकती है। ऐसी ही एक चीज़ किचन में पाए जाने वाला लहसुन है। लहसुन में कई सारे औषधीय गुण होते हैं। लहसुन को खाना तब ज़्यादा लाभकारी होता है जब आप उसे खाली पेट कच्चा खाते हैं। आइये जानें इसके सभी स्वास्थ्य लाभों के बारे में।

1. इंफेक्शन से बचाए 

लहसुनलहसुन का सेवन करने से शरीर में टी-सेल्स, फैगोसाइट्स, लिंफोसाइट्स आदि प्रतिरोधी तत्व बढ़ते हैं। ये सभी तत्व शरीर की इम्यूनिटी को बढ़ाते हैं। इससे किसी भी प्रकार का इंफेक्शन शरीर को तुरंत नहीं होता।

2. ब्लड प्रेशर कंट्रोल में रखे

 लहसुन खाने से हाइपरटेंशन की समस्या में आराम मिलता है। यह न सिर्फ रक्त के प्रवाह को नियमित करता है बल्कि यह दिल से संबंधित समस्याओं को भी दूर करता है तथा लीवर और मूत्राशय को भी सुचारू रूप से काम करने में सहायक होता है

3. पिंप्लस का उपचार 

लहसुनलहसुन में एंटी बैक्टिरियल तत्व पाए जाते हैं। इसीलिए पिंपल्स की समस्या हो तो इसका इस्तेमाल करने से काफी फायदा होता है। पिंपल पर लहसुन की स्लाइस लेकर हल्के से रब करें, बहुत जल्द पिंपल ठीक हो जाएगा।

दांत के दर्द में आरामजी हां, लहसुन के सेवन से दांतों के दर्द में भी काफी आराम मिलता है। इसके लिए लहसुन को लौंग के साथ पीसकर दांतों के दर्द वाले हिस्से पर लगाएं, दर्द से तुरंत राहत मिलेगी|

4. दांत के दर्द में आराम

जी हां, लहसुन के सेवन से दांतों के दर्द में भी काफी आराम मिलता है। इसके लिए लहसुन को लौंग के साथ पीसकर दांतों के दर्द वाले हिस्से पर लगाएं, दर्द से तुरंत राहत मिलेगी।

5. भूख बढ़ाए

लहसुन पाचन प्रक्रिया को तेज़ करता है और इसी वजह से भूख भी बढ़ाता है। जब भी आपको घबराहट होती है तो पेट में एसिड बनने लगता है। लहसुन इस एसिड को बनने से रोकता है।

6. ब्लड क्लॉटिंग न होने दे

लहसुन उन लोगों के लिए भी बहुत फायदेमंद हैं जिनका खून अधिक गाढ़ा होता है, और इस वजह से ब्लड क्लॉटिंग की समस्या हो जाती है। लहसुन खून पतला करता है और रक्त प्रवाह सुचारू करता है और इस तरह से ब्लड क्लॉटिंग को रोकता है।

7. श्वसन तंत्र मज़बूत बनाए

लहसुन श्वसन तंत्र के लिए बहुत फायदेमंद होता है। इससे जुड़ी स्वास्थ्य समस्याओं जैसे ट्यूबरक्लोसिस, अस्थमा, निमोनिया, ज़ुकाम, ब्रोंकाइटिस, पुरानी सर्दी, फेफड़ों में जमाव और कफ़ आदि रोकथाम तथा उपचार में बहुत प्रभावशाली होता है।

8. डायरिया दूर करने में मदद करे

पेट से संबंधित समस्याओं जैसे डायरिया आदि के उपचार में भी लहसुन प्रभावकारी होता है। लहसुन तंत्रिकाओं से संबंधित बीमारियों के उपचार में काफी प्रभावकारी होता है, लेकिन सिर्फ तभी जब इसे खाली पेट खाया जाए।

Health Benefits of Green Tea

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad

Promotes Heart Health

Potentially due to its ability to lower blood cholesterol, green tea has been shown to aid the body in its ability to burn off harmful forms of fat, preventing them from laying stagnant in the blood stream. Large-scale studies done on green tea have associated it with long-term heart disease prevention. A Japanese trial found that drinking at least four cups of green tea daily could lower the severity of heart disease in men. 

Antioxidants

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants. These free-radical fighting substances increase the body’s ability to ward off disease and slow down the degenerative processes of aging. Green tea contains antioxidants called catechins and polyphenols, forms of antioxidants known to stop the response associated with damaged DNA, high cholesterol, and even cancer. These antioxidants act as dilators on our blood vessels, improving their elasticity and reducing the chance of clogging. What is more, green tea undergoes very little processing, allowing the natural antioxidants to remain intact and concentrated.

 Weight-Loss Aid and Metabolism Booster

Green tea extract has been shown to be effective in both the prevention and reduction of weight gain. One study found that green tea’s fat oxidation properties aided participants in weight loss over a period of three months. A Japanese study found that participants using green tea extracts were most easily able to lose weight, lower blood pressure levels and get rid of harmful LDL cholesterol. Clinical studies suggest that green tea’s polyphenols create a fat-burning effect in the body, as well as increase metabolism. But, and this is a big but, some research has shown that green tea extract may offer too much of a good thing to the point it can negatively affect liver health. Although we can’t talk about the benefits of green tea without mentioning green tea extract and weight loss, we also can’t mention that without the caveat against green tea extract.

Supports Digestion

Green tea is a well-known digestive stimulant. It reduces intestinal gas and may even offer support for digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, the two types of IBD.

Encourages Normal Blood Sugar

Green tea has been used in traditional medicine to keep blood sugar levels stabilized. This may be due to the fact that it regulates glucose in the body.

Support for Arthritis

Studies show that green tea counteracts the response typically associated with diseases like arthritis. It does this by slowing the inflammation response as well as the breakdown of cartilage in arthritic individuals.

Boosts the Immune System

Green tea may act as an overall immune booster. Chemicals in green tea have been used to promote good health in so many ways. Some studies on laboratory animals even show promising evidence that green tea can slow the aging process and even keep us alive longer!

Fistula For Dialysis!

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Vascular Surgery, F.V.E.S
Vascular Surgeon, Bangalore
Fistula For Dialysis!

An arteriovenous fistula or AV fistula is a connection between the artery and vein made by a vascular surgeon at the time of hemodialysis. Hemodialysis is a treatment for kidney failure that involves a machine called dialyzer to filter the blood and remove the toxins. In order to gain a safe and easy access to the blood system during hemodialysis, the AV fistula is essential.

An AV fistula is placed in the upper arm and it causes extra pressure and extra blood to flow into the vein, thereby making it stronger and larger.

Benefits of AV Fistula

  1. Lower complication rates
  2. Less prone to injection or blood clotting
  3. Enables greater blood flow
  4. Relatively less expensive to maintain with a longer lifespan

Types of Fistula for Dialysis
All AV fistulas are created from the native blood vessels of the body, without any synthetic materials. The surgical process is quick and simple and requires a maturation time, in order to enable an increase and thickening of vessel walls.

  1. Radial Cephalic Fistula – This access involves a connection of the radial artery and cephalic vein. It is the hardest to create and has a lower blood flow than the other types. Typically the first choice for hemodialysis access, the radial cephalic fistula at the wrist is recommended.
  2. Brachial Cephalic Fistula – It is the easiest fistula that can be created by connecting the upper arm cephalic vein to the brachial artery. This access allows for a higher blood flow since the blood vessels in this part of the body are relatively larger. Also, it is easier to cannulate or introduce a tube into the vein, with a larger possible selection of cannulation sites.
  3. Brachial Basilic Fistula – This access is more complex to create and typically considered when multiple access procedures have failed previously. It requires the vein to be elevated and transposed in order to enable easy access. A mobilized vein from a deep location is connected to a superficial tunnel.

How does the AV Fistula Work?
Before surgery is done to insert the fistula, the surgeon may perform a vessel mapping test to analyze blood vessels and determine the best blood vessels to use. Once the surgery is performed, the fistula needs 2 to 3 months to mature and accustomed to the body before it can be used for hemodialysis.

At the start of the dialysis, the patient or healthcare provider inserts two needles into the access. One needle referred to as the arterial needle carries the blood from the body to the dialyzer machine. The dialyzer performs the kidney’s function to filter out the toxins and then it returns the filtered blood through another tube. The other venous needle carries the filtered blood back to the body.

Know More About Vaginal Rashes!

Although vaginal rashes can be identified with non infectious conditions, for example, hypersensitive responses and contact dermatitis, many are because of sexually transmitted diseases. The zone around the vagina might be blushed with sores or blisters or it might hold its typical shading yet have bumps. Different side effects, for example, discharge, burning sensation during urination, pain or tingling, may likewise happen.

Not all sexually transmitted diseases cause vaginal rashes; the ones that most regularly do are syphilis, genital herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV). Genital herpes normally causes groups of excruciating red blisters that might be irritated. Syphilis might be connected with a lone, painless, red sore on the vulva that might be followed by a rash on the hands and feet. Genital warts may develop as an after effect of HPV disease.

What is it caused by?

It can happen as a result of rubbing against the skin, like from uncomfortable underwear or rough sanitary napkins. These are not harmful and non-contagious. It can be caused by some non-specific bacteria called bacterial vaginitis. It can be due to protozoan infection, trichomonas vaginalis. Doctor can diagnose after examination and certain tests, the cause of itiching. Also, some of them are usually minor and get cured with home remedies.

  1. Contact Dermatitis: This can be caused when you come in contact with a substance that can cause irritation or an allergy. This is called contact dermatitis. It can be very itchy, but it is not serious very often.

  2. Pubic lice: These are caused by tiny parasites, such as insects that survive by sucking on blood from humans.

  3. Candidiasis (yeast infections): This can cause rashes in the moist folds of the vaginal skin.

  4. ScabiesIt is a skin condition, which can get very itchy and is caused due to little mites digging into your skin.

  5. PsoriasisThese are characterised by little red or wine red coloured bumps with silvery scaly skin on top of that. It is commonly found on the knees, elbow or scalp, but it can occur on any part of the body.

Peripheral Arterial Disease- A Serious Threat To Life Worth Being Concerned About!

Peripheral Arterial Disease- A Serious Threat To Life Worth Being Concerned About!

Peripheral arterial disease or commonly known as PAD is a common cardiovascular disease. Despite having the power to cause painful symptoms and severe health risks, it is overlooked by many. This particular arterial disease may lead to life-threatening consequences if left untreated for long. Read on to know more about the condition.

What is PAD?
PAD refers to the situation where in the peripheral arteries to the arms, head, stomach, and legs become narrow. Often referred to as the peripheral vascular disease, here, the arteries start to grow narrower due to the slow but constant buildup of fatty deposits on the artery walls. Though it can affect all the arteries in a person’s body, except those that supply blood to the heart, in the majority of cases, it affects the arteries in the leg.

What are the threats it poses?
PAD is indeed a life-threatening disease, as the blockages, it creates in the peripheral arteries prevent normal blood circulation to the different organs, legs, and brain. And when the blood flow is restricted, or the vital organs of the body fail to receive necessary blood flow, then the legs, brain and all the vital organs suffer severe damage. And when PAD continues to harm the blood flow for a long time, then it leads to tissue infection or tissue death, which is known as gangrene.

Additional health issues it causes
PAD also creates various other health concerns, such as atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease of fatty materials’ build up. In the case of atherosclerosis, the entire blood circulatory system gets damaged, including the arteries leading to the heart. The risk of blood clot build ups and vascular inflammation are also common additional threats posed by the fatty deposits.

Probable symptoms
Depending on the part of the body that is affected, the PAD symptoms vary from one to another. However, painful cramping in the muscles of one’s legs is the most common symptom of this condition. The pain, originating in the legs often goes up to the muscles in the thighs or hips too. Except this, weakness or numbness in the legs, ulcers or open sores on the feet or legs, skin color changing into bluish or pale are some of the other symptoms of PAD.

Possible treatments
The peripheral arterial disease can be diagnosed easily, painlessly and straightforwardly under proper medical attention. Both prescribed medications and a lifestyle change are considered to be the best treatment for controlling PAD. Including a healthy diet and adopting a healthy lifestyle have often been successful in preventing PAD in its early stage.

The moment any signs or symptoms of PAD is noticed one should not be late in seeking immediate medical attention.

Gastrointestinal Bleeding - How It Can Be Treated?

Gastrointestinal Bleeding - How It Can Be Treated?

Gastrointestinal bleeding, as the name suggests, is characterized by bleeding in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and its accessory organs (esophagus, stomach, colon, small intestine, rectum, and anus). The bleeding also referred to as gastrointestinal hemorrhage, is not a disease in itself. However, it may be an indication of a disease, injury or infection in the digestive tract of a person. The bleeding in the GI tract may be mild to chronic (often fatal), depending on the severity of the condition that triggers the bleeding.

What causes the gastrointestinal bleeding?
As stated, the gastrointestinal bleeding may be indicative of some digestive tract disorder. Some of the common conditions that may trigger the bleeding include

  • Tumors that are malignant in nature.
  • Hemorrhoids (a painful condition where veins around the anus, as well as the lower part of the rectum, swell up)
  • Peptic ulcers.
  • Diverticulosis (formation of diverticula or pouches in the walls of the large intestine).
  • Inflammatory bowel disorder.
  • Colon polyps (a small mass of cells that develop on the inner lining of the large intestine or colon).
  • There may be problems in the blood vessels (in the digestive tract).
  • Anal fissures.
  • Esophageal varices (the veins of the stomach or esophagus swell up due to a liver disorder, such as cirrhosis).
  • Angiodysplasia (it is a minute vascular malformation that takes place in the gut).
  • There may be an inflammation of the gastrointestinal lining.

Symptoms:
The appearance of blood in the stool and vomit is one of the characteristic symptoms of the gastrointestinal bleeding. Other symptoms indicative of a bleeding include

  • Weakness and fatigue.
  • The stool appears black and tarry.
  • A person may complain of uneasiness and shortness of breath.
  • The skin appears pale. In some cases, prolonged bleeding that goes unattended may result in anemia.
  • Abdominal pain.
  • The stool may also appear maroon or bright red (often in the case of bleeding from the lower gastrointestinal part).

Consult a doctor at the earliest if the symptoms persist for more than a week.Timely medical assistance can help to minimize the extent of the damage.

Diagnosis and treatment:
Gastrointestinal bleeding in the colon or the stomach is easy to diagnose. However, the diagnosis of the bleeding that occurs in the small intestine may be tricky and often requires the use of advanced and sophisticated equipment. The diagnosis is often done by

  • Physical examination.
  • Liver function tests.
  • Complete blood count.
  • Endoscopy, colonoscopy, and sigmoidoscopy.

Treatment:

  • Endoscopic injections (often diluted epinephrine) at the bleeding site provides great relief.
  • To close or clamp off a bleeding blood vessel, doctors may use Endoscopic clips.
  • Endoscopic intravariceal cyanoacrylate injection is used to treat varices in the stomach effectively.
  • There are medications available to treat GI bleeding triggered by ulcers.
  • In the case of an acute bleeding, a person may need surgery (Laparoscopy).

Kidney Health - 6 Amazing Ways You Can Maintain It!

Kidney Health - 6 Amazing Ways You Can Maintain It!

Kidney is a crucial detoxifying organ that performs a lot of functions including, absorption of minerals, filtration of blood and production of hormones and urine. It also helps your body to maintain a healthy PH level. Since kidney failure can prove to be fatal, it is essential to keep it healthy, to ensure smooth function of your system.

The following are the tips to ensure the health of your kidneys:

  1. Adequate intake of water: It is advised to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water daily, to help your kidneys function properly.  Adequate intake of water ensures that your body is able to flush out the harmful toxins at regular intervals.  However, in case if you are already suffering from kidney disease, this point is not applicable.
  2. Control your blood pressure and blood sugar level:  Diabetes is one of the major causes of kidney failure. It is recommended to control your blood sugar level on a regular basis to ensure healthy functioning of your kidney. People who have high level of blood sugar and blood pressure are more susceptible to suffer from kidney disorders.
  3. Quit tobacco: Accumulations of toxins in your body tend to have a harmful impact on not only your kidneys but also on your overall health. It is strictly recommended to quit smoking and using other forms of tobacco to protect your kidneys from damage. 
  4. Reduce weight:  Obesity and the problem of excessive body fat are harmful for your body in more than ways than one. Being overweight makes you more susceptible to develop kidney cancer. Therefore, it is advisable to lose a few kilos to ensure the proper functioning of your kidneys.
  5. Avoid intake of analgesics without prescription:  Most analgesics have the tendency to be harsh on your kidneys.  Ingestion of analgesics increases your risk of developing kidney cancer. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen are some of the analgesics, which are known to affect your kidneys in the long term. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid taking them without consulting a doctor.
  6. Include healthy food in your diet:  If you increase the intake of green vegetables in your diet, it will help your body to accelerate the process of detoxification.  Fruits and vegetables including watermelon, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, apples, cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, garlic and onions provide considerable aid in removing the toxins out of your system. However, in case if you are already suffering from kidney disease, this point is not applicable.

If the phimosis is very tight, don't attempt stretching and dilatation. See a good doctor and get his opinion Circumcision is done to get rid of phimosis. It's a minor procedure done under local anesthesia. Will require a 2-4 hrs of hospital stay and one day rest at home. Charges would vary according to the doctor you choose. Average it should be 10k to 15k.

Masturbation addiction is, simply put, the compulsive need to masturbate. The need becomes so overwhelming that the addict does not have the power to keep from masturbating. This overpowering desire is at the base of most forms of sexual addiction. The need to view pornography is usually a precursor to masturbation. Involving with prostitutes and illicit sexual activity is the next stage to it. It should be stopped as it has done lots of damage to you mentally/physically. It ruins once sexual health and even further lead them to impotency. Opt for my ayurvedic medicines (with counselling given on phone) that will help you stop this addiction. Proper medication will be given to control the urge of sexual desires and to recover the loss/damage given to the body Including penis curve and also penis enlargement. Conslt me privatly for further guidance. Do not worry Tc.

I have a problem of semen leakage due to which I fell sometime very much weakness. Should I take himalaya confido.
Excessive nightfall or semen leakage is harmful for health, because it weakens the nerves which connect the reproductive organs to the brain. In fact, the efficient connectivity with the reproductive system to the brain is very much necessary for successful functioning of the reproductive system. This needs a proper Unani treatment that will help you thicken your semen  and will limit no. Of nightfall. If not treated at right time can cause lots of problem in married life. Consult me privately will guide you further. Tc.
