1) Save electricity, save money

Ÿ Switch off when not in use.

Plugged in chargers waste power, so switch off if not charging!Computer in sleep mode draw power, so shut it down at night

Ÿ Replace incandescent bulbs with LED Bulbs.They are 80% cheaper to run and healthier than CFL bulbs.

Ÿ Use star rated appliances..Air conditioner, washing machine, refrigerator. They save power in the long run.

Ÿ

Ÿ Don't use the dryer , just hang clothes to dry.

Ÿ Keep refrigerator in shaded part of room , that way less power is used to cool.

Ÿ

Ÿ Use microwave for reheating rather than conventional ovens, definitely less electricity consumption with microwave usage.

Ÿ Stop opening the oven to check repeatedly, it causes heat to be lost.

Ÿ

Ÿ Decide what you want out of the fridge..don't keep it open, while you think!

Ÿ Use cold water for washing clothes in washing machine.Upto 40$ per year may be saved in your power bills by this little change.

Ÿ Use fully loaded washing machine and dishwashers before running them.

2) Save water

Water is a finite resource of ghis world.Use it with care.

Ÿ Close the tap when brushing your teeth, and other chores.Dont keep it running

Ÿ Use a low flow shower head.You can also try using the bucket and mug Method!

Ÿ Use a low flow flush .You may save upto 160,000litre water per year

Ÿ Fix the drip.Wastage of water upto 192 gallons per year may be avoided, by stopping the dripping tap.

Ÿ Collect water used to wash fruits, vegetables, pulses etc, and use it to water your plants.

3)Use green indoor plants to purify indoor air.

Indoor plants like peace lily and Areca palms remove formaldehyde and benzene fumes from indoor air.

4) Reuse, Recycle, up cycle your stuff at home.The less you discard the less stuff ends up in the landfill.

5) Make large furniture buying decisions strictly from, eco friendly sustainable furniture sources.Furniture's are expensive .Buy after planning

So this decision should be taken with much care

Bamboo furniture's are eco friendly ,as bamboo is a fast growing sustainable grass and not wood.Reclaimed wood, Stainless steel furniture's are green choices which are not too expensive.

You can shop from Craig list , eBay and refurbish your finds.Just take care if it's painted furniture, the paint may contain leas, so proper care needs to be taken while repainting.

6) Save petrol

Ÿ Use a carpool

Ÿ Regularly servicing the car will ensure less fuel wastage

Ÿ Empty the trunk, it increase fuel efficiency.

7) When out shopping carry your own reusable shopping bag.

That way you avoid buying the plastic or paper bag the the store may be giving or Selling!

8) Save paper

Ÿ Pay tax online and ask for an ex receipt.

Ÿ Pay tour bills online.

Ÿ But your train and plain tickets online.

Ÿ Buy your movie tickets online.

Ÿ Buy ebooks, used books

Ÿ Stop buying newspaper and read the news online.

Ÿ Print on both sides of the paper.

Ÿ Use cloth napkins instead of paper ones.

9) Take the stairs and not the elevator. Good for your health and the health of the environment.

10)Buy local, as far as possible. The lower the charge of transportation , the more money you save and less is your carbon footprint.

We spend the major portion of a 24 hour timespan at home.The healthier the home environment the better it is for your health..

Here I am seeing many posts by my beloved colleagues referring to surgery for some minute problems which I want to draw there as well as my patients attention that apart from surgery there is another pathy in our medical science which has a great power to heal and cure without scissors i.e. homoeopathy.
Homoeopathy can cure some problems without going to surgery like
1. Fibradenoma
2. Ganglion, cyst
3. Benign tumours
4. Piles and haemorrhages
5. Sexual problems
6. Hormonal issues
7. Menstrual problems
8. Skin problems
9. Renal stones (upto a certain limit)
10. Gastric problems
Moreover now a days homoeopathy is used widely in our country and abroad like france, uk, germany etc for getting a palliation and controlling the cancer without highly side effective medications.
So try homoeopathy once before taking the ultimate decision about your body.
Health is wealth so preserve it not ruin it.

No, no chance of pregnancy, this bleeding is due to side effect of I pill. You should not use I pill frequently it may cause severe hormonal imbalance in your body. In long term. So try to use other precautions.

Each siphene cycle success rate is less than 10%.If other confounding factors present success rate is less further.So keep your fingers crossed and go for back to back 4-6 siphene cycles with follicular study each month under a fertility consultant .

The day your periods start is your day 1, so count 10 days ahead, from there roughly for 7days you can plan relation for atleast alternate days. This is based on the fact that you ovulate (egg release) around 14th day, so two days prior or after will give you results for pregnancy.

Dear Lybrate user. If the intercourse is just before your partners period date, and if the period actually came the next day, even if you ejaculate within her vagina, it will not cause pregnancy. Take care.

Hello, if you have started on the birth control again since last month then you are not pregnant for sure and should actually wait in all 7 days to allow the withdrawal bleed to occur. As you are already experiencing symptoms so you should be patient and wait for menses to return naturally.

Dear as she is nearing to menopause, after ruling out contraindications, she can take combine oral contraceptive pill, or only progesterone pill or progesterone intrauterine device. One regular check up with full examination, blood pressure, liver function tests, lipid profile, blood sugar, hb. Paps smear test are the tests required. Sometimes d and c is helpful both to rule out uterine pathology and also reduces bleeding along with this you can give her tranexamic acid, iron calcium multi vitamines, and vit d. Try this for 2-3 months and see the response, if she is responds, you can avoid surgery.

Kiwi has countless health benefits

Like any other gooseberry, Kiwi is a rich source of vitamin C?it has twice the amount of vitamin C content than in oranges. Being an excellent antioxidant, vitamin C cleans the body of free radicals, boosts immunity and helps maintain bone health and teeth. It also boosts immunity, prevents wheezing, asthma and improves lung function. Vitamin C also helps increase the absorption of iron, making it beneficial in anaemia.
Kiwis are also abundant in vitamin E, another antioxidant. In fact, kiwi is the richest low-fat source of vitamin E. This adds a many points in the favour of the fruit because most good food sources of vitamin E like avocados are high in fats. Because of the high vitamin E content, kiwi helps in improving skin conditions and fertility.
Kiwi contains plenty of chlorophyll and lutein, potent antioxidants, which help repair DNA and prevent degeneration of body cells. The lutein along with the vitamin C helps prevent cataract and age-related macular degeneration.
Kiwi beats even banana when it comes to high-potassium, low-sodium content, which helps prevent cardiac arrhythmias [irregularity in the rhythm of heartbeats] and control blood pressure.
Kiwifruit is low in fat and calories, making it ideal for people on weight- loss regimes.
Kiwi has a low glycemic index and copious amounts of magnesium and hence can be had by diabetics.
Kiwi is abundant in dietary fibre, magnesium, folate and omega-3. Because of the folate and omega-3, it is excellent for brain development in children. The folate content also helps reduce hyperhomocysteinemia [a risk factor for coronary artery disease]. The fibre present in kiwis apart from lowering cholesterol also helps in relieving constipation.
It also has small amounts of vitamin A and B, calcium, phosphorus and zinc.
Kiwifruit can reduce the risk of platelet aggregation and helps in the reduction of plasma triglycerides, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.
