चिरकारी और आवर्तक ठंड के लिए, अजवाइन के तले हुए बीज 1-2 ग्राम की खुराक में 15-20 दिन के लिए लेने की सलाह दी जाती है। गुनगुने पानी के साथ अजवाइन के बीज चबाना खांसी के लिए भी एक अच्छा इलाज है।
2. अम्लता के लिए: अजवाइन के बीज में एंटी- हाइपरएसिडिटी गुण होते हैं। अम्लता के रोगी सुबह- सुबह या भोजन के बाद गुनगुने पानी और नमक के साथ अजवाइन का उपभोग कर सकते हैं। 10-15 दिन लिए जाने पर, यह अच्छे परिणाम दिखाते हैं।
3. अस्थमा के लिए:  गर्म पानी के साथ अजवाइन के बीज का उपभोग करने से शरीर को ठंड से तुरंत राहत मिलती है और खांसी और बलगम का निष्कासन होता है। यह ब्रोन्काइटिस और अस्थमा के उपचार के लिए भी उपयोगी है। अस्थमा से पीड़ित व्यक्ति अजवाइन और गुड़ का पेस्ट, 1 बड़ा चमचा दिन में दो बार ले सकता है।
4. पेट के दर्द के लिए: अजवाइन और छोटी मात्रा में नमक , गर्म पानी के साथ पीने पर अपच और पेट के दर्द के लिए काफी फायदेमंद है।

Sexual desire is a state of mental tuning, which sometimes gets switched off due to mental or physical stress, poor sleep and also due to harmonal changes, suggest you don't get overworked or tired ,and also take some folic acid, iron vitamin and calcium supplements, also use some lubricants to overcome your vaginal dryness.

4 Tips For The Right Geriatric Nutrition

4 Tips For The Right Geriatric Nutrition

Special nutritional needs are often required in special circumstances. Unlike adults from 20 to 60, children and elderly people have specific needs as their physical requirements are different. Just like pregnant women need tailor-made diets for their specific needs, children and elderly people also require appropriate diets without too much variation.
The requirement for geriatric or elderly nutrition:
As the body ages, certain functions within are slowed down and thus, the processes are not able to completely recuperate and replenish what was lost. Certain functions are affected more than others and hence, need specific nutrients to regenerate.
Tips for Geriatric Nutrition:
Let's take a look at some of the specific diet requirements as well as certain items, which should be avoided.
1. Consumption of calcium rich foods - Bones are a part of the human body that tend to suffer a lot of wear and tear and they start showing signs of weakening after 60. It is thus, important to replenish calcium in the body to help the bones get their building blocks. Some examples of calcium-rich foods are almonds and green leafy vegetables like kale. Dairy products are also good as long as the fat content within them is low.
2. Keeping the body hydrated - Although physical activity reduces with age, dehydration can still occur within senior people and thus, it is important that they remain hydrated. Simply drinking water may not be enough and juices or other water-rich foods such as watermelons should be used to supplement for hydration.
3. Lessening sodium within the body - The presence of excess sodium in the body can cause blood pressure to shoot up and result in high blood pressure, which may then further result in more ailments like strokes. It is pertinent that foods rich in sodium such a red meats be lessened or cut out of the diet altogether.
4. Lessening sugar consumption or any other foods that may exacerbate diabetes - Another factor to consider is the consumption of sugar and sugar-filled products. Not just for diabetics, but elderly people have a tendency to develop high blood sugar and hence, it is prudent to reduce sugar intake.

Fungal Infection

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Fungal Infection

Onychomycosis, also called tinea unguium, is a fungal infection that affects either the fingernails or toenails. Fungal infections normally develop over time, so any immediate difference in the way your nail looks or feels may be too subtle to notice at first.

Why Does It Develop?

A fungal nail infection occurs from the overgrowth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments, so this type of environment can cause them to naturally overpopulate. The same fungi that cause jock itch, athlete’s foot, and ringworm can cause nail infections.

Fungi that are already present in or on your body can cause nail infections. If you have come in contact with someone else who has a fungal infection, it may have spread to you.Fungal infections affect toenails more commonly than fingernails because your toes are usually confined to your shoes, where they’re in a warm, moist environment.

If you get a manicure or pedicure at a nail salon, be sure to ask how the staff disinfects their tools and how often they do it. Tools, such as emery boards and nail clippers, can spread fungal infections from person-to-person if they’re not sanitized.For all skin,hair and nail ailments visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.

Remember "after morning pill" It is available at medical shops, it's legally certified Pass on the message to all your friends It should be taken the morning after unprotected sex. Infact I advise all women to keep two such pills in their hand bags in the heat of sexual excitement we often forget about protection Condom gives less pleasure Spermicide cream is very good and I strongly advise this protection Now that it is 15 days, wait for your next period and if it does not come straight away go to a gynaecologist and wash the uterus It's the most definite way.

Tips To Get Over Tough Times

Tips To Get Over Tough Times

Tips to get over tough times 

Tough times are a part of our life, sometimes we are unable to handle it leading to us becoming slaves to a lot of negativity. There are a few things you can try to  help tide over it.

* Firstly stop being in denial – accept the situation stop getting angry and bargaining for something better, accept and tell yourself “i want to face this ”and “i will do my best to deal with this”.

* What next? - calm down, think through and try to figure out what to do next? Start working on a solution for the issue rather than just focusing on the issue.

 * Solution may not come to you immediately but at least start working towards it one step at a time. 

* To find solutions we should put ourselves in a third person perspective. Finding solutions is a lot easier this way. Remember that every problem has a solution.

* Get help - do not shove away family, friends or any loved ones who are trying to help you. Seeking help does not make you weak. Try and discuss the issue with them to get an outsiders perspective. Since they are not a part of the problem they will be able to have 360 view of the issue and they may be able to help you better.

* Positivity is important - it may seem like a difficult task but try to focus on the positive things happening in your life. Try to surround yourself with positive people, and people who see the good in you.
* Don’t give up – never give way for negativity to seep into your life. Stop yourself from focusing on negative thoughts and emotions.

Drugs/ alcohol - never look at drugs, alcohol, smoking or abuse of any kind as a solution for your problem, it only gives you a perception that things are fine, but the truth is, it only increases your problem.

* No blame game - do not blame yourself or others for the problem. Blaming will not solve your situation.

* Stay healthy- do not neglect your health. You need to be there for yourself too.

Finally remember this too shall pass.

Due to over weight you have hormonal imbalance causing period and breast problems. You have to lose weight by avoiding junk food. If your period cycle is less than 35 days interval then it is normal, even if dates change but if is more than 35 days interval, then to detect the cause you need to do some blood tests and ultrasound of pelvis. Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help and restrict salt and water intake during pains.

MSc-Psychology, MHSc-Reproductive and Sexual Medicine, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Contraceptive pills are to be taken daily one at bed time. The pack contains 21 tablets. Start from the fifth day of menses one tablet a day for 21 days,stop for a week,start a new pack from 29 th day.Continue like this any number of months. She has to take one tablet daily whether she had sex or not ,only one tablet in a day even if had sex more times. Probably she is taking a tablet on the day of sex only. That may be the reason of irregular bleeding.
