Hi sir. My son has 6 year old but still he is doing toilet in bed. Pls. Suggest what we do.

Pediatrician, Mumbai
Toilet meaning urine or stool? if urine then you can get a urine routine done to rule out infection. If reports normal then you can wait for some few months before starting therapy. If stool the you need to consult a pediatrician.

Speech Sound Disorders in Children!

Speech Sound Disorders in Children!

As young children learn language skills, it's normal for them to have some difficulty saying words correctly. That's part of the learning process. Their speech skills develop over time. They master certain sounds and words at each age. By age 8, most children have learned how to master all word sounds.

But some children have speech sound disorders. This means they have trouble saying certain sounds and words past the expected age. This can make it hard to understand what a child is trying to say. Speech sound disorders include articulation disorder and phonological process disorder. Articulation disorder is a problem with making certain sounds, such as" sh" phonological process disorder is a pattern of sound mistakes, such as not pronouncing certain letters.

About articulation disorder

  • Articulation disorder is the inability to form the certain word sounds correctly past a certain age. Word sounds may be dropped, added, distorted, or swapped. Keep in mind that some sound changes may be part of an accent, and are not speech errors. Signs of an articulation disorder can include:
  • Leaving off sounds from words (example: saying" coo" instead of" school")
  • Adding sounds to words (example: saying" puhlay" instead of" play")
  • Distorting sounds in words (example: saying" thith" instead of" this")
  • Swapping sounds in words (example: saying" wadio" instead of" radio")

About phonological process disorder

  • Phonological process disorder is a regular pattern of certain word speech mistakes. The mistakes may be common in young children learning speech skills, but when they persist past a certain age, it may be a disorder. Signs of a phonological process disorder can include:
  • Saying only one syllable in a word (example" bay" instead of" baby")
  • Simplifying a word by repeating two syllables (example" baba" instead of" bottle")
  • Leaving out a consonant sound (example" at" or" ba" instead of" bat")
  • Changing certain consonant sounds (example" tat" instead of" cat")

Causes of speech sound disorders

  • Often, there is no known cause for a speech sound disorder. But some speech sound errors may be caused by:
  • Injury to the brain
  • Intellectual or developmental disability
  • Problems with hearing or hearing loss, such as a history of ear infections
  • Physical abnormalities that affect speech, including cleft palate or cleft lip
  • Disorders affecting the nerves involved in speech

Diagnosing speech sound disorders

First, your child's hearing should be checked. This is to make sure that he or she isn't simply hearing words and sounds incorrectly.

If hearing loss is ruled out, you may want to contact a speech-language pathologist. This is a speech expert who evaluates and treats children who are having problems with speech-language and communication. 

By watching and listening to a child speak, the speech-language pathologist can determine whether the issues are part of normal growth and development or are a speech sound disorder. The pathologist will evaluate your child's speech and language skills, keeping in mind accents and dialect. Speech-language pathologists can also assess if a physical problem in the mouth is affecting your child's ability to speak.

Treating speech sound disorder

  • The pathologist can then recommend a therapy plan to help your child overcome his or her disorder. Speech-language pathologists work with children to help them:
  • Recognize and correct sounds that they are making wrong
  • Learn how to correctly form their problem sound
  • Practice saying certain words and making certain sounds
  • The pathologist can also give you activities and strategies to help your child practice at home.
  • If your child has a physical defect in the mouth, the pathologist can also refer your child to an ear, nose, throat doctor or orthodontist if needed.

A positive outlook

Early recognition and diagnosis of speech sound disorders can help children overcome speech problems. They can learn how to communicate well and comfortably.

Ayurvedic Treatment Of Tuberculosis - क्षय रोग का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

क्षय रोग जिसे टीबी के नाम से भी जानते हैं, इसकी बिमारी ट्यूबरकल बेसिलाई नामक जीवाणु के द्वारा उत्पन्न होता है. इस बिमारी के प्रमुख लक्षणों में खाँसी का तीन हफ़्तों से ज़्यादा रहना, थूक का रंग परिवर्तित हो जाना या उसमें रक्त की आभा नजर आना, बुखार, थकान, सीने में दर्द, भूख में कमी, साँस लेते समय या खाँसते समय दर्द महसूस करना आदि शामिल हैं. टीबी  एक संक्रामक रोग है. यानी ये तपेदिक रोगी के खाँसने या छींकने से इसके जीवाणु हवा में फैल जाते हैं और उसको स्वस्थ व्यक्ति श्वसन के जरिए ग्रहण कर लेता है. हलांकि जो व्यक्ति अत्यधिक मात्रा में ध्रूमपान या शराब का सेवन करते हैं, उन्हें इसके होने की संभावना ज्यादा रहती है. यदि आपको इसके लक्षण नजर आएं तो तुरन्त जाँच केंद्र में जाकर अपने थूक की जाँच करवायें और डब्ल्यू.एच.ओ. द्वारा प्रमाणित डॉट्स के अंतगर्त अपना उचित उपचार करवायें. ताकि पूरी तरह से ठीक हो सकें ध्यान रहे कि टी.बी. का उपचार आधा करके नहीं छोड़ना चाहिए. आइए अब हम आपको क्षय रोग के कुछ आयुर्वेदिक उपचारों के बारे में बताएं.
लहसुन में मौजूद एलीसिन नामक तत्व टीबी के जीवाणुओं के विकास को बाधित करता है. क्षय रोग के उपचार में लहसुन का उपयोग करने के लिए आप एक कप दूध में 4 कप पानी मिलाकर इसमें 5 लहसुन की कली पीसकर मिलाएं और इसे चौथाई भाग शेष रहने तक उबालें. अब इसे उतारकर ठंडा होने पर दिन में तीन बार लें.
प्याज का रस और हिंग
क्षय रोग के मरीजों को नियमित रूप से सुबह और शाम को खाली पेट आधा कप प्याज के रस में एक चुटकी हींग मिलाकर एक सप्ताह तक पीना चाहिए. इससे आपको एक सप्ताह के बाद फर्क दिखना शुरू हो जाएगा.
क्षय रोग में आप सभी घरों में आसानी से मौजूद शहद का इस्तेमाल भी अपनी परेशानी को कम करने के लिए कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए 200 ग्राम शहद, 200 ग्राम मिश्री और 100 ग्राम गाय के घी को मिलाकर तीनों को 6-6 ग्राम दिन में कई बार चाटें. और बेहतरी के लिए ऊपर से गाय या बकरी का दूध भी पिलायें.
पीपल वृक्ष की राख
पीपल वृक्ष के छाल की राख का उपयोग भी टीबी के मरीज कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए 10 ग्राम से 20 ग्राम तक पीपल वृक्ष के राख बकरी को बकरी के गर्म दूध में मिला कर नियमित रूप से सेवन करें. इसमें आवश्यकतानुसार मिश्री या शहद भी मिला सकते हैं.
पत्थर के कोयले की सफ़ेद राख
टीबी के मरीज पत्थर के कोयले की सफ़ेद राख के आधा ग्राम को मक्खन मलाई अथवा दूध के साथ नियमित रूप से सुबह शाम खाएं तो लाभ मिलता है. फेफड़ों से खून आने वाले मरीजों के लिए ये बेहद प्रभावी है.
रुदंती वृक्ष की छाल
रुदंती नामक वृक्ष के फल से निर्मित चूर्ण से लगभग सभी प्रकार के असाध्य क्षय रोगी आसानी से ठीक हो सकते हैं. इसके लिए कुछ आयुर्वेदिक फार्मेसियां रुदंती के छाल से कैप्सूल भी बनाती हैं. इससे रोगियों को स्वास्थ्य लाभ मिलने का दावा किया जाता है.
केला के ऊर्जा देने की क्षमता से लगभग सभी परिचित हैं. केला में मौजूद पोषक तत्व हमारे शरीर के प्रतिरक्षातन्त्र को मजबूती प्रदान करते हैं. इसके लिए आप एक पका केला को मसलकर इसमें एक कप नारियल का पानी मिलाकर इसमें आधा कप दही और एक चम्मच शहद मिलाकर इसे दिन में दो बार लें.
सहजन की फली
सहजन के फली को सब्जी के रूप में आपने भी इस्तेमाल किया ही होगा. आपको बता दें कि इसमें जीवाणु नाशक और सूजन रोधी तत्व मौजूद होते हैं. इसके यही गुण टीबी के जीवाणु से लड़ने में हमारी मदद करते हैं. इसके लिए आप मुट्ठी भर सहजन के पत्ते को एक गिलास पानी में उबालकर इसमें नमक, काली मिर्च और नींबू का रस मिलाएं.  अब नियमित रूप से सुबह खाली पेट इसका सेवन करें. इसके अलावा आप सहजन की फलियों को उबालकर सेवन करके अपने फेफड़ों को जीवाणु मुक्त कर सकते हैं.
अपने अपने सूजन नाशक एवं जीवाणु रोधी गुणों के लिए आंवला मशहूर है. इसमें मौजूद पोषक तत्त्व शरीर की प्रक्रियाओं को ठीक ढंग से चलाने में मददगार हैं. इसके लिए आप 4-5 आंवले का बीज निकालकर इसका जूस बनाएं और इसका प्रतिदिन सुबह खाली पेट लें. यह टीबी रोगियों के के लिए अमृत के समान है. आप चाहें तो आंवला चूर्ण भी ले सकते हैं.
आक की कली
क्षय रोग के मरीजों को आक की कली खाने की सलाह भी दी जाती है. इसके लिए पहले दिन तो आपको ईसकी एक कली को निगल जाना है. फिर दुसरे दिन दो कली और तीसरे दिन तीन इसी तरह क्रमशः 15 दिन तक लेने से काफी लाभ मिलेगा.

Mam.In the childrens of 4-9 years of age, they have irritable intenstines. Any mild alteration in food, environment ,their intenstines start to contracts. Which leads to pain around umbilicus. It is mostly not serious though & gradually abate by 9 years of age. You ask your baby to point with the finger where is the pain? If it is around umbilicus ,you may relax a bit. When multiple episodes of this type of pain occurs in a single year or episodes are disturbing the normal daily activities of the child, we usually do the battery of investigations which usually causes serious pain abdomen.In 95% of cases these tests comes out to be normal. U have already done everything except SICKLING TEST. Bottom line is you don't have to worry much. Just keep changing the foods ,environment, keep engaging your child in different games it will reduce these episodes in a significant manner. A few more medicines you may require to abate it. That can I advice you when you text me.

Do you have Asthma ?

MD Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi

Asthma is a very common condition that is quite often 'miss' diagnosed. Asthma presents as breathlessness, it is also called as wheezing, due to the typical sound that is often present. The lungs help us breathe in the air , there is a phase where the air goes in called inspiration and when the air comes out its called expiration. Asthma typically occurs when the air pipes or tubes through which the air goes in and comes out gets narrowed. When this happens , there is increased resistance to the air flow and this resistance causes the wheeze or sounds that are associated with the condition.

Some people are more prone to Asthma than others , those with a general tendency of allergies tend to be more at risk for developing asthma. Since the narrowing of the air pipes reduces the air flow, there also is a change in the gas exchange which happens in the lungs, when the gas exchange is suboptimal the body feels the need for more air and this is characterized as breathlessness. Sometimes a person might also have a cough along with the wheezing and this can be misdiagnosed as a respiratory infection when there is none, unless there is a clear-cut evidence of infection that too of bacterial origin Antibiotics won't be useful. ( because a large number of viral infections can also be there).

Many people when they have a cough and breathlessness walk into a drug store and buy an antibiotic or cough syrup and self-medicate. This can be very harmful, developing antibiotic resistance means the next time there is an infection the less likely the antibiotics are likely to work and secondly some medicines can themselves increase the risk of asthma or wheeze.

The treatment of Asthma is very simple, there are very good inhalers that help the tightness or narrowing of the air pipes to be relieved in a matter of seconds, so if you think you have asthma consult someone who can diagnose it correctly and help you live more productively.
