Tips on Work /Life Balance:

In theory this formula sounds good: “One third of your time should be spent taking care of business. Then spend one third taking care of the inner and the physical you. And one third for family, friends, community, and the world at large.” That would be desirable if we lived in an ideal world.

The answer is: Simply do your best! The key is to learn to be present in whatever third you're living in. So when you're working, work. And when you’re loving, love. And when you're eating, eat.

The secret is this: Listen to your body, pay attention to the signals it gives off.
When you listen to your body, you will know when it’s functioning at optimal levels. Your body will tell you when you've had enough sleep or when you've had enough food.

It’s about living more mindfully. It’s about being aware of where you are, in excess or in deficiency, and taking the steps needed to restore balance and achieve that natural state of equilibrium. Your body will thank you.

My wife is 5 months pregnant. Is it safe for her nd baby to travel 200 kms by car . Any precautions to be taken.
Yes. As long as you have a healthy pregnancy, it's fine to carry on driving while pregnant. However, in the last few months, your growing bump may make it more difficult to get in and out of the car. It may even start to get in the way of the steering wheel. As a result, you may prefer to stop driving towards the very end of your pregnancy. It's also worth noting that the tiredness and nausea you may be feeling in the first trimester can make it hard to concentrate. Be sure to take regular breaks, and only drive when you're feeling alert and well-rested. There's no reason not to travel by car when you're pregnant, but you may need plenty of toilet stops on a longer journey! As above, stretch your legs when you can and take plenty of breaks. If sitting in the car gives you back pain, try putting a cushion, foam wedge or rolled-up jumper in the small of your back. Adopt a few safety precautions for your peace of mind. Make sure you always have your mobile handy and, as you near your due date, take your pregnancy documents with you on long trips.

If it's beyond tolerance, may take pain killer sometimes but we do not recommend it as a routine. Its not the solution. You may take raktavardhak and aarta shuddhi herbs for about 4 weeks. After seeing response we may advise next phase. If you agree we may advise the same.

My girl friend got some muscle pieces from vagina with blood. We consult some doctor she said it is abortion. Now the muscle pieces coming out has been stopped. But bleeding is happening daily. Is their any problem in future foe her? It is happening from 15 days muscle pieces have been stopped before a week.

Dear Lybrate user, Considering your condition as abortion (which it most likely is) continuation of bleeding means that there is likelihood that a small chunk of tissue may still be in the uterus. That can be known after doing the ultrasound of lower abdomen.

4 ways to overcome the feeling of body dissatisfaction

Dissatisfaction about your own body is very common. Negative self image may affect one’s self esteem and lead to depression and generally make you worry or be conscious all the time.

Here are few tips to overcome the feeling of body dissatisfaction.

1. First of all, let’s understand one basic fact - NoBODY is perfect! quite literally.
It is important to be realistic about your body and to remember that a perfect body is neither essential for your happiness nor does it have much relevance to your fitness.

2. Exercise regularly to stay fit and to boost your mood. Do the workouts which you enjoy doing.

3. Don’t compare yourself with others as they might have perfect body but might not be as fit or happy as you feel.

4. Accept that you are what you are and it is absolutely OK to be just the way you are. Instead it is advisable to focus on your abilities and work on to improve your skills. Prove your strengths which build your body confidence.

Most of the side effects when using this early abortion option are caused by the second medication, misoprostol. Side-effects may include heavy bleeding, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and heavy cramping. Vaginal bleeding with medical abortion could be extremely heavy. Mifepristone blocks the hormone progesterone needed to maintain the pregnancy. Because this hormone is blocked, the uterine lining begins to shed, the cervix begins to soften and bleeding may occur. With the later addition of the second medication, misoprostol, the uterus contracts and the pregnancy is usually expelled within 6 to 8 hours. Aftercare a follow-up exam is scheduled for two weeks later to make sure the process is complete. If you have not yet miscarried, we will perform a aspiration abortion. A very small percentage (5%) of women do not pass the pregnancy tissue and need a suction procedure to complete the process.

Side-effects may include heavy bleeding, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and heavy cramping. Risks vaginal bleeding with medical abortion could be extremely heavy. In rare situations it could require a aspiration abortion and very rarely, a blood transfusion. You will be given our 24-hour hotline number to call if you have any problems.

Sub-clinical hypothyroidism can sometimes cause infertility and miscarriages and is, thus, usually treated in women of childbearing age that desire to become pregnant. In addition, both men and women with untreated thyroid disease often have decreased sexual desire (libido). This points to the need for improved dose adjustments for pregnant women with thyroid conditions. According to the study, “Poor control of hyperthyroidism during pregnancy is also associated with increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth, hypertension in pregnancy, preterm births, and maternal heart failure.” How is hyperthyroidism treated during pregnancy? During pregnancy, mild hyperthyroidism, in which TSH is low but free T4 is normal, does not require treatment. More severe hyperthyroidism is treated with antithyroid medications, which act by interfering with thyroid hormone production. Radioactive iodine treatment is not an option for pregnant women because it can damage the fetal thyroid gland. Rarely, surgery to remove all or part of the thyroid gland is considered for women who cannot tolerate antithyroid medications. Antithyroid medications cross the placenta in small amounts and can decrease fetal thyroid hormone production, so the lowest possible dose should be used to avoid hypothyroidism in the baby. Antithyroid medications can cause side effects in some people, including allergic reactions such as rashes and itching a decrease in the number of white blood cells in the body, which can lower a person’s resistance to infection liver failure, in rare cases

I want to know that in my folds of vagina always there is a white deposition, is it normal or does this white thing need to be removed and if yes then how and also I had a recent urine test and there was no urine infection.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Hello lybrate-user, the white deposition in the folds of the female genetalia is quite normal. It should be removed regularly. If it is not removed then it can provide a gud medium of infection mostly fungal. So I wud suggest you to remove it regularly. Method of removing it is if its not sticky then you can remove it with plain water while taking a bath. Kindly do not use any hard soap or scrub as it might lead to abrasions.

Food for liver detox -lemons
Food for liver detox -lemons. Lemons are a natural cleansing food and essentially one of the best to" get things going" in all areas of your body. Lemons provide a wealth of antioxidants, primarily vitamin c, and they help your liver produce more enzymes which give you more energy and help with digestion. Lemons are also a natural replacement for salt in the diet since they're high in electrolytes that support your body but that don't dehydrate your cells like sodium does.

Urinary Stones - Urolithiasis

M.Ch - Urology, MS, MBBS
Urologist, Dehradun
Urinary Stones - Urolithiasis
The development of urinary stones is most commonly related to:
Decreased urine volume
Increased excretion of stone-forming components
Inadequate urine drainage, which may lead to stasis
Decrease in urinary citrate levels leading to deposition of calcium
Deficiency of vitamins a or c - these conditions can also lead to the" hyper triad: hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcaemia, and hyperuricosuria.

Treatment
When a stone causes no symptoms, watchful waiting is a valid option. For symptomatic stones, pain control is usually the first measure, using medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or opioids. More severe cases may require surgical intervention. For example, some stones can be shattered into smaller fragments using extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Some cases require moreinvasive forms of surgery. Examples of these are cystoscopic procedures such as laser lithotripsy or percutaneous techniques such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Sometimes, a tube (ureteral stent) may be placed in the ureter to bypass the obstruction and alleviate the symptoms, as well as to prevent ureteral stricture after ureteroscopic stone removal.

Prevention
Recurrence of renal stones is common and therefore patients who have had a renal stone should be advised to adapt and adopt several lifestyle measures which will help to prevent or delay recurrence:
Increase fluid intake to maintain urine output at 2-3 litres per day.
Reduce salt intake.
Reduce the amount of meat and animal protein eaten.
Reduce oxalate intake (foods rich in oxalate include chocolate, rhubarb, nuts) and urate-rich foods (eg, offal and certain fish).
Drink regular cranberry juice: increases citrate excretion and reduces oxalate and phosphate excretion.
Maintain calcium intake at normal levels (lowering intake increases excretion of calcium oxalate).
Depending on the composition of the stone, medication to prevent further stone formation is sometimes given - eg, thiazide diuretics (for calcium stones), allopurinol (for uric acid stones) and calcium citrate (for oxalate stones).
