Friends, we are going through difficult times and everybody is feeling unhappy because life and time have become so difficult and fast that a person is forced to think.
A person is thinking but his body is suffering, because of tension based lifestyle, the total story is changed. All the time person is engrossed in something or other and at times he doesn’t know even, whether he is coming or going. All this is putting pressure on the person, with the result he starts going to the specialists for his ailments and what he gets is palliative treatment. For his ailments, as long as he takes it, it’s ok, the moment it is stopped the ailments come back again and if he continues with the drugs, the ailments take a different turn meaning thereby one ailment give rise to another ailment with the result the chain continues without any respite. That means there is no cure at all because the origin i.e. thinking is not changed at all or has not been cured and so ailment continues in some form or other and ultimately gets out of hands.
In times now a person is surrounded by basically three factors
Friends, tension is a very small word but has a deep meaning. If a child is not doing well, the parents have tension, if a husband is not doing well wife has a tension, if a husband and wife are quarreling then the child has a tension.
These days what is happening in society is also a cause of worry. It is not only atmospheric pollution which definitely is a cause for physical ailments but it also results in mental confusion and tension because when the body is not well, the mind is distracted. Apart from this, under the guise of modernization and modern thinking the society is getting perverted which is mental pollution.
With modern gadgets in life, which are meant for simplifying it, the life has become more complex and in the rat race of the competition the person again gets stuck with the result the part of the body which is the weakest gets affected first and that is the beginning of the illness. It can be either heart, liver, pancreas, joints or anything.
It is just the thought process which is causing all this and to cure all this with mental symptoms is by Homoeopathy only, where the treatment is that of a person, not of specific part of the body which is the basic principle of homeopathy, which is safest amongst all pathies of the treatment.
Myth 1: Homeopathy is unproven science.
Fact: Homoeopathy (sometimes also spelled homeopathy) is based on experimental pharmacological and clinical data. Over the years, homeopathic medicines have been extensively studied for their efficacy in a variety of indications. Clinical studies have been conducted in India as well as other countries. In fact, the term 'Allopathy' was coined by the founder of homeopathy whom the allopaths regard as the founder of experimental pharmacology.
Myth 2: Homoeopathic medicines are only sugar pills which act more as placebos and have no medicinal value as such.
Fact: Yes, the white sugar pills, as such do not have any medicinal value. But these act as vehicles or carriers for the medicines, which are alcohol based. Otherwise, the medicine can be taken directly or dissolved in water. Homeopathic medicines have been scientifically studied the world over and found to be effective in a wide range of diseases. Thus they are not placebos.
Myth 3: Homoeopathy is slow acting and cannot be used in acute cases of diarrhea, fever, cough, cold, etc.
Fact: Homoeopathy is fast acting in acute cases and can be effectively used in treating infections, fever, cold etc. Unfortunately, people tend to go to a homeopath only when the acute problem becomes chronic. Naturally, these cases take longer to treat. Also, most people take recourse in homeopathy in cases of arthritis, allergic asthma or skin conditions etc., which take a longer time to treat with any other system of medicines.
Myth 4: Homoeopathy is a 'magic remedy' that can treat any disorder.
Fact: Homoeopathy, like any other field of medicine, has its limitations. For example, it cannot treat cases where surgery is unavoidable, dental cases, etc.
Myth 5: Homoeopathic doctors are quacks who do not have formal training in the field of medicine.
Fact: Qualified doctors practice Homoeopathy, in most parts of the world. In India, there are over 180 medical colleges, which offer degree and post-graduate studies in Homoeopathy. At present, there are over 2, 00,000 trained homeopaths in the country.
Myth 6: One has to follow strict dietary restrictions while on homeopathic treatment.
Fact: Some patients are asked to abstain from onions, garlic, coffee, tea, alcohol etc. as these substances interfere with the action of certain homeopathic medicines. But then, restricting alcohol and tobacco is also safe and healthy.
Myth 7: Homoeopathy is only useful in chronic cases.
Fact: Very often it is - where everything else has failed! But the true reason for this perception is because people turn to homeopathy so late when everything else has failed! After years of allopathic treatment often an illness becomes chronic. The treatment will now naturally take longer than in case of using homeopathy right from the beginning.
Myth 8: Homoeopathy cannot be used in diabetic patients.
Fact: It can! The minute amount of sugar globuli (the little round pills) taken daily does not matter. Sugar intake in the daily diet is significantly higher than that taken by a few globuli. In very severe cases, the dilution may be taken as drops in water or over lactose.
Myth 9: The homeopath gives the same white pills for all types of illness. How can they be really effective?
Fact: Depending on the illness, homeopaths medicate with different medicines. The sugar pills serve only as a vehicle for transfer of the medicine. The selected medicine, out of a range of more than 1200 different dilutions, is targeted to the individual problems.
Myth 10: Are there really no side effects of homeopathic medicine?
Fact: Generally there are no side effects of homeopathic medicine if prescribed in potencies of 3CH and above. However, some tinctures and triturates in very low potencies like 1x, 2x have some side effects of minor nature.
Sunflower seeds are actually considered good for health because of its nutritional value.
Benefits Sunflower seeds are rich in the B complex vitamins, which are essential for a healthy nervous system, and are a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, protein and vitamin E. They also contain trace minerals, zinc, manganese, copper, chromium and carotene as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids - types of 'good' fat that may help to protect the arteries. Try them High in protein and low in carbohydrates, sunflower seeds make the ideal pick-me-up tasty snack.
Sunflower Seeds: Health Benefits
Sunflowers seeds have been ranked at the top of the nuts and seeds list for their high content of phytosterols or cholesterol-lowering compounds. These seeds are loaded with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are good fats that lower bad cholesterol. Besides, they are rich in fiber that contributes to lowering cholesterol in some people.
Due to their high content of dietary fiber, raw seeds of sunflower can aid in digesting food and even cure constipation.
Sunflower seeds have a high content of vitamin E, selenium, and copper that have antioxidant properties. As per research, these antioxidants prevent cellular damage that often leads to cancer. These nutrients prevent cancer by reducing and suppressing cellular damage from oxidants and protecting tissue from oxidant-free radical damage. Sunflower seeds can reduce the risk of certain types of cancer due to their high phytosterol content. They also contain a compound called lignans, which also protects against certain types of cancer. These naturally occurring compounds can inhibit the growth of cancer cells, thus preventing colon, prostate and breast cancer.
Vitamin E in sunflower seeds is the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant. This vitamin travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage fat-containing structures and molecules like cell membranes, brain cells, and cholesterol. Thus, vitamin E exhibits significant anti-inflammatory effects, resulting in the reduction of diseases caused by free radicals and inflammation such as asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Controls High Blood Pressure
Sunflower seeds are a rich source of vitamin E. This vitamin helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays and give a glowing skin.
Prevents Hair Loss
Sunflower seeds also contain vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) which is not only crucial for the absorption of zinc but also has some hair loss preventing properties. These properties can be attributed to the ability of vitamin B6 to boost oxygen supply to the scalp. They are also the best dietary sources of copper which are involved in melanin formation. This pigment is responsible for imparting color to your hair.

- Add them to Bread
- Sprinkle them on Baked Goods, soup, salad, burger, noodles
- Add them to Vegetables

There are 5 different dimensions or zones which can help people become aware of their communication. The five zones are:
- Sensations: This zone includes a sense of touch, smell, sound, sight and taste. Intuitive sensations come from a person’s internal world. Nonverbal information can provide useful feedback about our effectiveness in communicating with others whereas verbal words can confirm or disconfirm them.
- Thoughts: This zone looks at meaning one makes out of one’s interactions. We mostly see the world not how it is but how we are and filtering it through our belief system. Our interpretations help us understand the world, but can lead to incorrect conclusions so it is important to be open about other person’s thoughts and ideas.
- Feelings: This zone is about our emotional reactions to what we experience. Our feelings are predictable and rational. Awareness and understanding of one’s feelings and others are required for one’s own identity. Feelings can be positive, negative and mixed. Whether to express them or not is another important aspect in relationships.
- Wants: This zone is about our intentions. Our wants are based on what we need and expect. They reflect our core values and help us organize and motivate action. Three types of wants are to be, to do and to have.
- Actions: This zone is about our behavior. Action often speaks louder than words so therefore, we need to pay attention to it when we communicate. So, to increase our awareness of our own behavior, it is essential to ask others for feedback or to take the perspective of an outside observer.
If we are trouble or confusing situation, these dimensions can be used to understand and deal the situation. These zones provide brainstorm insights and options to solve problems quickly and efficiently. Whenever nonverbal and verbal inputs indicate that something is wrong in the relationship then start with any dimensions of communication that comes into your conscious and one by one later focus on all 5 zones and proceed around the model to resolve the problem.
There are many kinds of conditions and symptoms that require different kinds of surgery for treatment as well as diagnostic management. One such procedure is called a laparoscopy or the laparoscopic surgery. This is a surgical diagnostic management procedure that is known to be a low risk process with minimal invasion and suitable for various types of ailments.
Read on to know everything about laparoscopic surgeries:
- Definition: A laparoscopic surgery is one where small incisions are made and an instrument called a laparoscope is used in order to take a look at the organs in the abdominal region. This tool is a long tube shaped one that comes with its own high intensity light and a high resolution camera that can easily move along the walls of the organs while the camera sends back imagery that will be displayed on a video screen in front of the doctor. This avoids the need for an open surgery and helps the doctors in getting samples for a biopsy on an outpatient basis.
- Need for Laparoscopy: This procedure is performed when the patient complains of persistent pain that is also sharp and shooting, in the abdomen region and surrounding areas like the pelvic cavity. This non-invasive method helps in diagnosis where other imaging methods like an ultrasound and CT or MRI scans would have failed to give a conclusive reason for the pain and suffering of the patient. When these tests do not supply enough reason for proper diagnosis, then the doctors usually resort to this kind of procedure.
- The Organs it can be used for: The laparoscopic surgery can be used for many organs including the appendix as well as the gall bladder, the pelvic region and the reproductive organs, the small and large intestines, the spleen, the stomach, the liver and the pancreas.
- What all can it Detect: The laparoscopic surgery can help in detecting a number of issues including any abnormal growth or mass that may be a tumour. It can also point at the presence of any disease in the liver, as well as the proper functioning of certain treatments. Also, it can show the amount of fluid that may or may not be present in the abdominal cavity and the extent of cancer's progression in the body.
- Risks: There are a few side effects or risks of this method including fever, chills, swelling, bleeding or redness of the site where the incision was made for the surgery, and shortness of breath. All these symptoms must be reported to the doctor immediately as they may point at the presence of an infection. Also, there is a risk of organ damage in this procedure.
The adrenal glands are present above the kidneys (hence the name) and produces an important hormone known as cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for regulating multiple body functions, including controlling the blood pressure, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, and anti-inflammatory response, and stress management.
- Emotionally stressed situations
- Athletic training
- Panic disorders
Causes: Cushing’s syndrome is a group of symptoms that manifest when there is too much cortisol in the body. It is more common in women than men, in the age group of 25 to 40. Some of the common causes for Cushing’s syndrome are listed below:
- Consuming too much of prednisone (and other steroids) or for prolonged periods can cause Cushing’s syndrome. These are strong anti-inflammatory medications and are used in asthma, arthritis, lupus, transplants, etc., to control the body’s inflammation reaction. It is therefore advisable to use topical steroids than oral steroids or injections as their effects are more noticeable and severe.
- Adrenal gland tumours can cause excessive production of cortisol.
- Pituitary gland tumours or adenomas also can also cause excessive production of cortisol, leading to Cushing’s syndrome.
The first type is known as exogenous Cushing’s disease and the others are known as endogenous Cushing’s disease.
Signs and symptoms: Cushing’s disease produces characteristic features which are referred to as the Cushingoid appearance. These features include the following:
- A rounded, plump face with a pinkish hue
- A moon face, with fat deposits on the face
- A buffalo hump with fat deposits between the shoulders
- Stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, and arms
- Weak muscles, especially in the hips and shoulder
- Significant weight gain
- Skin that gets thin and bruises easily
- Extreme tiredness
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- Thin arms and legs
- Delayed healing of cuts and injuries
- Increased facial hair in women
- Menstrual disorders
- Reduced libido, infertility, and erectile dysfunction in men
- Emotional issues like depression, anxiety, irritability
- Increased thirst and urination
- Bone loss, and eventually fractures
- Affected bone growth in the developing years
- Increased susceptibility to infections
Treatment: This would depend on the cause. If you are on long-term steroids, the dose would need to be adjusted. This should always be done under medical supervision, as it requires constant adjustment. Underlying tumours (pituitary or adrenal) need to be diagnosed and treated. There are other hormones too which come into the picture and need to be monitored.
Your diet will play a very important role in how fast the body recovers from a kidney transplantation surgery. Apart from the medication you take, a healthy, wholesome diet helps with healing, strength and overall health. While the individual diet plans will vary depending on the person, below are common foods you should prefer and avoid to protect your well-earned kidney:
- Avoid raw and unprocessed food: The anti-rejection medication that you take after the surgery lowers your immunity levels and this means that your chances of infections might be higher during this period. This is why it is important to prevent eating raw meat, eggs, unprocessed milk etc. You should also prevent eating out because of the risk of getting infected.
- Choose fresh fruits, vegetables, and greens: Fruits, vegetables, and greens are good sources of nutrition, fibre, and minerals. These can be consumed heartily and you can aim at eating 4-5 portion sizes of these every day. Fresh juices are also great to hydrate your body and heal the tissues.
- Avoid simple sugars: Few medications might result in increased blood sugar levels and this puts extra pressure on your body. You can prevent an abnormal increase in blood sugar levels by preventing over-consumption of carbohydrates and simple sugars. These include rice, pasta, noodles, ice creams, chocolates, molasses and all types of junk/fast food.
- Choose protein-rich food: Proteins play a great role in healing damaged tissues and strengthening your body. However, too much of proteins can be harmful too. You can, therefore, avoid protein supplements and try getting it from natural sources like lean meat, eggs, soya, and pulses.
- Stay away from canned/precooked food: Canned/ instant food is always rich in unsaturated fat, sodium, and sugars all three of which are unhealthy for your body. Your doctor might recommend you to limit your sodium intake to prevent water retention in the body. Even when you decide to eat a bowl of soup, skip canned versions and make your own at home.
- Cut down on alcohol: You might need to skip alcohol completely for the first few months after the surgery. After that, talk to your doctor, get recommended levels and do not cross that. Have a couple of days that are alcohol-free in a week. You should remember that alcohol is very high in calories and sugar.
- Limit fried food: Excess oil is also bad for your body, especially after a major surgery like this. Choose steamed, air fried and grilled options anytime you can.
If your doctor has prescribed a calorie plan for every day, make sure you stick to it. Fill up your diet chart with healthy, home-cooked meals. Keep checking your weight, sugar levels and blood pressure regularly and pick food that is healthy for your body and mind.
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) includes methods that can help induce pregnancy where it cannot be achieved naturally. In other words, it is an infertility treatment for couples trying to have a baby.
Who are eligible for the ART treatment?
Assisted Reproductive Technology is useful for-
- Women who cannot conceive without assistance
- Women who cannot sustain a pregnancy without treatment
There are several types of methods available, which target a specific problem and help in achieving pregnancy by undoing it.
• Ovulation Induction - Pregnancy can happen only if there are no glitches in the menstrual cycle. Many women ovulate irregularly, while some others do not ovulate at all. In such cases, doctors prescribe hormonal therapy. A tablet or injection introduces a substance that triggers the secretion of follicle-stimulating hormones in the body. When the follicles develop, another hormone is administered which help in releasing an egg from the follicle. If the couple times their intercourse with the release of the egg, the woman can conceive.
• Artificial Insemination - Sometimes a woman cannot conceive because of mechanical difficulties in intercourse. This may arise due to structural problems of the penis or if the man is unable to get an erection. Through artificial insemination, the doctor injects the sperm into the woman’s uterus through her cervix during or right before ovulation. Artificial Insemination can be performed in conjugation with ovulation induction if a woman is unable to ovulate.
• In Vitro Fertilization - This process is chiefly used on women whose fallopian tubes are blocked. A woman is administered hormones that stimulate the release of several eggs. The woman’s eggs and the semen from her partner or a donor are collected. The sperm fertilizes the eggs, and of the several embryos produced, only one is placed in the uterus and the others are frozen in case the pregnancy fails.
Infertility is no longer a cause of distress. With Assisted Reproductive technology, anyone can have a child today. Before you opt for the procedure, have a detailed conversation with your gynaecologist. Weigh out the various advantages and risk factors associated with the ART process. You can completely rely on ART since it does not involve many complications.
