Ringworm Treatment In Hindi - दाद का इलाज

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Ringworm Treatment In Hindi -  दाद का इलाज

दाद, जिसे डर्माटोफायोटासिस या टिनिअ के रूप में भी जाना जाता है, त्वचा का एक कवक संक्रमण है। "दाद" एक मिथ्या नाम है, क्योंकि संक्रमण एक कवक के कारण होता है, कीड़ा द्वारा नहीं। संक्रमण शुरू में त्वचा के प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लाल पैच के साथ प्रस्तुत होता है और बाद में शरीर के अन्य भागों में फैलता है। यह संक्रमण खोपड़ी, पैर, ऊसन्धि, दाढ़ी या अन्य क्षेत्रों की त्वचा को प्रभावित कर सकता है। 
दाद प्रभावित शरीर के हिस्से के आधार पर अलग-अलग नाम से जाना जाता है। कुछ प्रकार के दाद के संक्रमण में टिनिया कैपिटिस (स्कैल्प), टिनिया कॉर्पोरिस (शरीर), टिनिआ क्रूरिस (जॉक खुजली), टिनिया पेडीस (एथलीट फुट/  पैरों का दाद) शामिल हैं। ट्राइकोफिटन, माइक्रोसोरम, और एपिडर्मोफटन कवक के प्रकार हैं जो दाद पैदा कर सकते है। 

दाद के लिए उपाय

चाहे जहां भी संक्रमण हो, आप छुटकारा पाने के लिए कुछ प्राकृतिक उपचार का उपयोग कर सकते हैं। 

1. लहसुन:
लहसुन में एजोन्ने, एक प्राकृतिक एंटिफंगल एजेंट है। अध्ययनों से पता चलता है कि इस फंगल संक्रमण को चंगा करने के लिए एजोन्ने महान है। लहसुन का एक फांक छीलकर, उसे पतली स्लाइस में काट लें। प्रभावित क्षेत्र पर यह पतली स्लाइस रखें और उसके चारों ओर एक पट्टी लपेटें। रात भर के लिए इसे छोड़ दें। वैकल्पिक रूप से, आप प्रभावित क्षेत्र पर लहसुन पेस्ट भी लागू कर, इसे रात भर छोड़ सकते हैं। 

2. नारियल का तेल:
नारियल तेल बाल और खोपड़ी से संबंधित समस्याओं के लिए एक अच्छी तरह से जाना जाता उपाय है। इसका इस्तेमाल दाद का इलाज करने के लिए भी किया जा सकता है। यह तेल न सिर्फ़ खुजली वाली त्वचा से राहत प्रदान करता है बल्कि क्षेत्र को चिकना और नरम भी बना देता है। बस प्रभावित क्षेत्र पर नारियल तेल लगाएँ और रात भर के लिये छोड़ दें। 

3. हल्दी:
हल्दी न केवल एक प्राकृतिक एंटीबायोटिक है, बल्कि इसके कई स्वास्थ्य लाभ भी हैं। यह शक्तिशाली मसाला कई बैक्टीरिया और कवक संक्रमणों के उपचार में प्रभावी है। दाद का इलाज करने के लिए, पानी और हल्दी मिला कर एक गाढ़ा पेस्ट बनाएँ, और एक रूई की गेंद का उपयोग कर प्रभावित क्षेत्र पर इसे लागू करें। प्रभावी परिणाम पाने के लिए आपको रोज यह 2-3 बार दोहराने की जरूरत है।

4. एलोवेरा:
एलोवेरा एक लोकप्रिय आयुर्वेदिक दवा है, जिसका उपयोग बीमारियों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला के लिए किया जाता है। यह एंटिफंगल और जीवाणुरोधी है और धूप की कालिमा, दाद, चकत्ते, कटौती आदि के इलाज में मदद कर सकता है। इसके अलावा, यह त्वचा की पुनः पूर्ति करने के लिए कई पोषक तत्व और खनिज प्रदान करता है। प्रभावित इलाके पर सीधे एलोवेरा जेल को लागू करें और रात भर के लिए इसे छोड़ दें। फिर सुबह इसे धो लें। 

5. सेब का सिरका:
सेब का सिरका भी जीवाणुरोधी और एंटिफंगल गुणों के लिए जाना जाता है। सर्वोत्तम परिणाम के लिए, संक्रमित क्षेत्र पर एक रूई की गेंद के साथ सेब का सिरका लागू करें। इसे एक दिन में कम से कम 5 बार दोहराएं।

6. सिरका और नमक:
सिरका और नमक का उपयोग करके गाढ़ा पेस्ट बनायें। संक्रमित क्षेत्र पर इस मिश्रण को लागू करें। इसे 5-10 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें और फिर इसे धो लें।

7. चाय के पेड़ का तेल:
चाय के पेड़ के तेल में एंटिफंगल और एंटीसेप्टिक एजेंट होते हैं जो विभिन्न प्रकार के त्वचा रोगों का इलाज कर सकते हैं। इसका उपयोग मुँहासे, जीवाण्विक संक्रमण, मुँह के छाले, सोरायसिस, कीट के काटने आदि के इलाज के लिए लंबे समय से किया गया है। संक्रमित क्षेत्र पर एक रूई की गेंद के साथ चाय के पेड़ का तेल लागू करें। इसे हर दिन तीन बार दोहराएं।

8. सरसों के बीज:
30 मिनट के लिए पानी में सरसों के बीज भिगोएँ और उन्हें मोटी पेस्ट बनाने के लिए पीस लें। संक्रमित क्षेत्र पर इस पेस्ट को लागू करें।

Blocked Arteries: Know The Reasons Behind It

Blocked Arteries: Know The Reasons Behind It

Blockage in heart is a common term used for narrowing of coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are vessels (which supply blood and thus oxygen and food) to continuously working heart muscles. Heart muscles which are not tired working from the birth till death, however, cannot sustain long without blood supply.

A reduction in blood supply gives rise to ischemia of heart muscles commonly manifested as chest discomfort or angina. A sudden complete shutdown of blood supply leads to heart attack leading to permanent damage to heart (if blood flow not reestablished promptly).

But what causes these arteries to block? Deposition of LDL cholesterol (low density cholesterol) in inner surface of coronary arteries is the primary reason of these blockages. LDL a normal component of blood (upto certain limit) starts depositing in arteries as early as 10 years of age!

Deposition of billions of LDL molecules over several years on inner surface of arteries gives rise to visible narrowings of these arteries. Flow ahead of these narrowings are reduced in proportion to the narrowing. At a level of 70 % narrowing the flow is reduced to give ischemia (and angina) during exercise. Gradually increasing degree of narrowing reduces the exercise needed for ischemia and angina; a narrowing of more than 90 % can give symptoms at rest. A sudden clot formation at any of these stages can block the blood flow suddenly giving rise to a heart attack. 

If LDL is a normal component of blood, why it is deposited in the arteries at first place? 

LDL above a certain limit  LDL-C ≤2.0 mmol/L in blood starts depositing in the arteries. Normal LDL value Diabetes, Hypertension, smoking, less exercise and genetics makes it more sticky thus making narrowing faster. This is why these risk elements need to be properly attended for prevention from heart disease. For treatment medicines are important for to halt the progression of narrowing of the arteries; There are surgical options like angioplasty (method of fast resolution of blockage;) and bypass surgery ( method of creating a whole new blood supply for the affected part of the heart) available. But Madhavbaug has developed a treatment that will effectively treat your blockage with the help of Ayurvedic Panchkarma sittings and lifestyle modifications. Kindly visit your nearest Madhavbaug Clinic for expert medical advice. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

Both these are said to help diabetic patients however it is best to take medicines alongside. Because there is no conclusive proof as to how much these remedies can reduce your sugar levels. If you find your sugar levels dropping, you can reduce medicines.

Hi lybrate-user, start your day with a fresh juicy fruit. Good on stomach. Breakfast should be wholesome. Eat every 2 hours. Main meal options are roti-sabzi-dahi, rice-dal-sabzi, khichdi-dahi, etc. Workout 150 minutes a week, that's like thrice a week. Even though food is free in office, stay off junk that comes out of the packaged products including chips, sodas and juices. Stay hydrated. All the best and keep progressing on your fitness journey! hope this helps.
