Tips For A Healthy Immune System!

Tips For A Healthy Immune System!

The immune system is what gets you going. It protects an individual from various harmful pathogenic and microscopic (bacteria, virus, fungi) organisms. The immunity can be of two types- Innate and Acquired (Adaptive). The Innate immunity is the one that is present in a person from birth. The Adaptive immunity, on the other hand, is the immunity that a person develops over their lifetime. While some people are born with a strong immune system, others have to work towards developing one. The following tips and lifestyle practices can go a long way to give your immune system a much-needed boost:

A dietary immunological boost: Your immunity may be directly related to the food you need. Some foods are like a tonic for your immune system. Fruits and vegetables can do your immune system a world of good. Citrus fruits (orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerines), Berries (particularly blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries), kiwi, and papaya are powerful immune boosters. The vegetables such carrots, broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes, onion, red bell peppers are extremely healthy, especially for your immune system. Garlic (Allium sativum), Turmeric (Curcuma longa), and Ginger (Zingiber officinale) are known for their medical values. These three spices can bring about a significant improvement in people with a weak immune system. Almonds, yogurt, mushrooms (shiitake), and flaxseeds can also work wonders for your immune system.

All work and no sleep: A sound sleep and proper rest can work miracles, especially for your immune system. Stress, anxiety, and fatigue are known to have a negative effect on the health. More than often, they trigger a hormonal imbalance that can wreak havoc, weakening the immune system. No matter how busy you are, never compromise on your sleep. Follow a healthy sleep cycle. An early to bed and early to rise is what should be your motto. Make sure that you sleep for 6-8 hours daily.

Reduce the stress: Exercise and physical activities can contribute significantly to building your immune system. Meditation is a not only a good stress buster but also a great immune booster, increasing the body's resistance to various bacterial and viral diseases and infections. The health benefits of exercise require no special mention. Like meditation, it also helps to increase the immunity by lowering the level of stress hormones in the body. Spending quality time with your family or loved ones, staying cheerful and positive can also help to reduce the stress to a great extent. In the case of professional stress, you can take short breaks or go on vacations to rejuvenate yourself. The lower the stress, the stronger is the immunity.

Lifestyle habits: The unhealthy lifestyle habits such as drinking and smoking (often unlimited) can spell doom for the immune system and are best left avoided if you want to enjoy a healthy immune system.
Also, drinking green tea regularly will go a long way in improving your immune system. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

3 Ways You Can Treat Ectopic Pregnancy!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Infertility (IVF Specialist)
Gynaecologist, Aurangabad
3 Ways You Can Treat Ectopic Pregnancy!

An ectopic pregnancy takes place in the case when the completely fertilized egg attaches itself to a place instead of the inner side of the uterus. Ectopic pregnancy is also called tubal pregnancy because in most cases, it takes place in the Fallopian tube. Usually, the Fallopian tubes are not responsible for holding an embryo which keeps on growing. Hence, the egg has no scope to develop in the Fallopian tube. This problem must be treated as soon as possible to avoid further complications.

Here are several ways of treating ectopic pregnancy.

  1. Expectant management: In case you are not experiencing any symptoms of pregnancy or the pregnancy cannot be found, close observation is required. This is known as expectant management. You should conduct regular blood tests and follow them up in order to detect, whether the hCG level in your blood is ascending or descending. You are likely to have vaginal bleeding. Use pads and towels instead of tampons. Pain in your tummy is also indicated.
  2. Proper medication: In case ectopic pregnancy is detected at an early stage and constant monitoring is not suitable for you, a medicine by the name of methotrexate can be used for treatment. The medicine stops this pregnancy from developing. It is usually injected into your buttocks. Regular blood tests must be carried out to know how the treatment is taking shape on your condition. Trusted contraception measures should be taken for three months following the treatment as methotrexate is very harmful for an infant in case you become pregnant. Keep away from alcohol, as the combination of methotrexate with alcohol is harmful to the liver.
  3. Surgical means: The most common mode of surgery for removing ectopic pregnancy during an early stage is laparoscopy or keyhole surgery. While a laparoscopy is carried out, you will be in a state of anesthesia. A narrow tube or the laparoscope is inserted through surgical cuts in the tummy. The Fallopian tube which had the ectopic pregnancy is totally removed in case the other Fallopian tube is functioning well. Else the pregnancy has to be somehow removed without cutting off the Fallopian tube. Removal of the Fallopian tube is the best remedy for treating ectopic pregnancy and getting pregnant again is also possible. It takes a normal woman almost six weeks to recover after the surgery. Laparotomy is another kind of surgery carried out to repair a ruptured Fallopian tube.

It is sad to see our elders suffer.However,in your grand-mother's case let me assure you that simple measures may be able to manage the problem. In all probability,your grand mother seem to be having'Asymtomatic Bacteriuria' which does not require any antimicrobials unless some other problems are there coexisting. Ensure excellent blood sugar control,good hygiene of body & private parts, avoid/treat constipation.

Chemical Peels: Conditions They Treat - A Warning!

Chemical Peels: Conditions They Treat - A Warning!

A chemical peel is a form of skin treatment where an acid solution is used for the removal of damaged outer layers of the skin. Alpha hydroxyl acids and trichloroacetic acids are used in chemical peels. Phenol is also applied to the skin. Chemical peels aid in improving the skin’s appearance. The chemical acid solution makes the skin peel off. The new skin is much smoother and is less wrinkled.

Chemical peels are of several types:

  1. Superficial peels: In this type, alpha hydroxyl acid is used to penetrate the outer layer of the skin and exfoliates it gently. Superficial peels are used for improving the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin.
  2. Medium peels: In medium peels, trichloroacetic acid is used for penetrating into the middle layers of the skin to remove damaged cells. Improvement in age spots, lines and wrinkles can be done using medium peels. Rough skin is smoothened.
  3. Deep peels: In the case of deep peels, trichloroacetic acid or phenol is used for penetrating the middle layers of the skin to remove damaged cells. Skin appearance is improved drastically.

Conditions treated with chemical peels
Chemical peels are used for the treatment of certain conditions. They can be used to treat the following conditions:

  1. Reduction in fine lines which occur under the eyes or around the mouth.
  2. Treatment of wrinkles which are caused due to sun damage or old age. This is done using chemical peels.
  3. Chemical peels help in improving the appearance of mild scars on the skin surface.
  4. Several types of acne are cured by chemical peels.
  5. Chemical peels help in reducing age spots, freckles and dark patches known as melasma, which occur because of pregnancy or because of taking birth control pills.
  6. The overall look and feel of the skin are improved after using chemical peels.

After a chemical peel treatment is done, the skin becomes extra sensitive to the sun. Hence, it is recommended to use a sunscreen lotion, which also protects against UVA and UVB light rays.

Are chemical peels safe?
Chemical peels are very effective and provide perfect rejuvenation to the skin. However, as far as safety is concerned, you should know that chemical peels have some side effects.

  • They may result in a temporary or permanent change in the skin color, especially in women who take birth control pills.
  • Scarring can occur and cold sores can get reactivated.

Chemical peels involve the use of chemicals or acid to improve the appearance and condition of the skin. This procedure is an effective one and satisfactory results are obtained.

Pain during periods is very common nowadays due to unhealthy lifestyles. For this you need to change your lifestyle. 1) Avoid eating junk & spicy food. 2) Have black tea with ginger & 1 tsf cow ghee 3) make ladoo of urad daal fried in sesame oil & mixed with jaggery. Have 1 daily for 3 months 4) Eat two tbsps of flax seeds during your period 5) drink a lot of water & fresh juices 6) Go for matra vasti at a panchakarma centre 7) Half a teaspoon of powder of sesame seeds taken with hot water twice daily acts excellently in reducing spasmodic pain 8) Using heating pads or hot water bags around the area relaxes the stiff muscles and reduces pain by bringing oxygen in the area. Pain killers do have side effects on liver and kidneys.

3 Ways To Treat Vaginal Dryness

3 Ways To Treat Vaginal Dryness

Are you experiencing reduced libido along with intense dryness in your genitals? Loss of libido is a tough thing to cope with in women. In spite of having a great sex life, your vaginal area can become nonresponsive because of several reasons. You might not even know what is happening and the reasons which are causing the condition. These conditions are common in the menopause stage in women.

Reasons for decreased libido and vaginal dryness:

1. Several changes occur in a woman’s body during the menopause stage. The sex hormones, which include estrogen and progesterone start decreasing. This may lower your libido, cause vaginal dryness and affect your sex life to a great extent.

2. Testosterone is the sex hormone which turns you on or gets you into the mood for having sex. When the production of this hormone is insufficient, the urge for having sex gets affected and reaching an orgasm gets even harder.

3. The decrease in estrogen production causes several physical changes in a woman. The blood circulation to your sexual organs gets reduced, making you less sensitive to any kind of sexual stimulation. It also leads to vaginal dryness. The walls of the vagina also become thin due to which penetration may get painful.

Remedies for decreased libido:

1. You should start practicing breathing exercises and do meditation for at least thirty minutes every day. This will enable you to eliminate stress, which is a primary trigger for decreased libido.

2. For balancing the estrogen levels, you should consume phytoestrogenic tea and supplements. Some important herbs which you should take include black cohosh, red clover and dong quai.

3. You should also consume aphrodisiac food items. Garlic is such a food item, which contains allicin and increases the blood flow to the vagina. Dark chocolate can also be taken.

Remedies for vaginal dryness:

Several conventional vaginal lubricants may lead to irritation, infection and dryness of the vagina.

1. You should always use a natural lubricant, which is not associated with side effects and works effectively. Natural lubricants such as tea tree oil, coconut oil and vitamin E based oils provide effective vaginal lubrication. They also moisturize and repair the vagina.

2. You must keep fit and active. Regular cardio or yoga sessions will help with enhanced blood flow to your sexual organs, making you feel wet.

3. You should drink plenty of water and always stay hydrated in order to prevent dryness in the vagina.

Most importantly, it is a good idea to continue having sex. If you shy away and do not make any effort, the problem of decrease in libido will continue. Therefore, sex is the best way of encouraging your body. Proper communication with your partner is also necessary. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.
