My cousin has stomach pain & fever from last 1 month. We consult some doctors in our area but the problem is not solved. Doctor says that it is because of his liver problem. Can you please suggest some vaccination for this problem. He is 6 years old.

Meet a pediatrician. Pain in abdomen might be due to simple gastritis, worms in GIT etc etc. Better to show to a pediatrician. If needed he may get a sonography done to rule out any major problem. If Temperature is >100 then consider it as fever. Doctor might advice for blood investigations if needed. Do not try to avoid a doctor. Meet one as soon as possible.

There are certain reason for keeping hand in mouth. Usually bottle fed and/ or hungry baby develop this habit. This is age is for weaning. Start semi solids beside breast feeding and top milk (not in bottle). It may solve problem.

This may be otitis media, need not worry, avoid head bath, instill ear drops like candid / otogesic ear drops 2 drops each ear 3 times daily. If child is having fever I suggest you to start a course of antibiotic after consulting a paediatrician in person.

Yes it is safe above 2 month age. Only precaution is to avoid effects of high cabin pressure. You can eliminate that effect by giving" artificial nipple -soother" and or breast feed the baby during take off. Have a nice journey.

My son is 13 months 6 days old what kind of lunch I can give him.now I only give boil dal rice potato carrot beans chicken fish and egg.any other kind lunch please suggest

A 13 month old can eat almost everything that you cook in the house. Make food without chillis and amchur and offer a variety. Give small morsels without forcing. Let him enjoy the tastes and texture variations. You will soon know what he loves or rejects.

My son is 7 years old, on back side of his left leg, there is a light white line from hip to foot. Please suggests reason and remedy for the same, is this due to some deficiency ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Not due to any deficiency. It can be birth mark, post inflammatory scar if he had any abrasion there or fungal infection which however will not be like a line as you said. If you can send a photo to me I han guide you better. It is safe to apply imidil ointment twice daily for few weeks and if ungal it will disappear. You can remain in touch with me privately as your personal doctor.

A 21 day old baby can cry due to many reasons. Babies cry when they are hungry, cold, too warm, or have abdominal gas. Some babies also cry without reason. I would implore you to give only breastmilk to your baby because no other food is required by your baby right now.

Night cough after1am may be a sign of asthma. Cough soon after going to bed may be a sign of post nasal drip. As you have not mentioned the time of onset of cough difficult to tell exactly.

टाइफाइड का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

टाइफाइड का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

आयुर्वेद में तमाम रोगों का इलाज उपलब्ध है. आयुर्वेद से इलाज का एक अतिरिक्त फायदा ये है कि इससे सफल इलाज होकर सेहत तो ठीक होता ही है साथ में कई और आवाश्यक तत्व हमें मिल जाते हैं. थायराइड को अपनाना बहुत ही आसान और तरीके बहुत सरल हैं. थायराइड के इलाज के भी कई तरीके आयुर्वेद और घरेलु उपचारों में बताया गया है. इन तरीकों के कई फायदे हैं. सबसे बड़ा फायदा है कि ये आसानी से उपलब्ध है और इसका कोई साइड इफेक्ट भी नहीं है. तो आइए जानें कि थायराइड के उपचार के लिए कौन-कौन से आयुर्वेदिक तरीके उपलब्ध हैं-

  • मुलेठी: थायराइड में थकान का अनुभव जल्दी ही होने लगता है. इस थकान को दूर करने में मुलेठी बहुत कारगर है. इसमें थायराइड ग्रंथि को संतुलित करने वाला और थकान को उर्जा में बदलने वाला तत्व पाया जाता है. और इस प्रकार मुलेठी से थायराइड में आपको लाभ मिलता है.
  • जूस: थायराइड के मरीजों को कुछ फलों जैसे कि संतरा, अंगूर का रस, नारियल पानी, चुकंदर, अन्नानास, गाजर, सेब, पत्तागोभी आदि का जूस लगातार कुछ दिनों तक देने से उन्हें आराम मिलता है. यदि आप इन फलों को कच्चा खाना चाहें तो कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं.
  • साबुत धनिया: थायराइड के बीमारी में साबुत धनिया भी बहुत काम आता है. इसके लिए एक ग्लास पानी में दो चम्मच साबुत धनिया रात में भिगोकर रख दें. सुबह इसे मसलकर तब तक उबालें जब तक कि पानी एक चौथाई न रह जाए. इसके बाद थोड़ा ठंडा होने पर इसे खाली पेट पी लें. और फिर पानी में नमक डालकर गरारे करें. लगातार इस उपचार को करने से थायराइड से निजत मिल सकता है.
  • साबुत अनाज: बुत अनाज से बने खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन भी आपको थायराइड से दूर रखने में आपकी मदद करता है. क्योंकि साबुत अनाज में फाइबर, विटामिन्स और प्रोटीन आदि प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. ये सभी मिलकर थायराइड को बढ़ने से रोकते हैं.
  • आटा: यराइड में राहत के लिए आटा भी काम आता है. इसके लिए 5 किलो आटे के साथ 1 किलो बाजरे का आटा और एक किलो जौ का आटा मिलाकर इससे बनी रोटियां खाने से आपको काफी हद तक थायराइड से निपटने में मदद मिलेगी.
  • गो-मूत्र: सुबह उठकर फ्रेश होने के बाद साफ़ कपड़े से गोमूत्र को छान लें. फिर इसे सुबह खली पेट लें. इसे लेने के डेढ़ घंटे तक आपको कुछ नहीं लेना है. इस दौरान ये ध्यान रखें कि आपको फास्ट फ़ूड और तैलीय भोजन से दूर रहना है. आप पायेंगे कि इससे भी थायराइड ठीक हो रहा है.
  • अदरक: सभी घरों में प्रयोग किया जाने वाला अदरक में मौजूद गुण आपको थायराइड से लड़ने में मदद करते हैं. अदरक में मैग्नीशियम और पोटैशियम ही वो तत्व हैं जो थायराइड से आपको मुक्ति दिलाते हैं. इसके आलावा अदरक में एंटी-इन्फ्लेमेटरी गुण भी होता है जो कि थायराइड का प्रभाव कम करके उसे फंक्शनल बनाता है.

कुछ अन्य जड़ी-बूटी:
काला अखरोट, बाकोपा, निम्बी बाम, अश्वगंधा, इचिंसिया, मुलेठी, अदरक, गेहूं का ज्वारा आदि सभी जड़ी-बूटी थायराइड के उपचार में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं. लेकिन इनके उपयोग से पहले आपको किसी आयुर्वेद के डॉक्टर से संपर्क कर लेना चाहिए.

For people suffering from respiratory allergies and infections, steam inhalation should be followed as a routine. Even when you are well, taking steam for 5-10 min twice a week will ward off many potential episodes of illness.

Shape improve with time when baby starts sitting more than lying down. Also, you must give vitamin d3 drops daily to baby as important apart from routine care.
