Neuroplasticity - 7 Things You Must Know About it!

Neuroplasticity - 7 Things You Must Know About it!

The neurones in the brain are constantly reorganising their connections both functionally and physically according to the environment, your thinking and behaviour. This ability is known as neuroplasticity. Through neuroplasticity the nerve cells of brain can compensate for injury to some parts of the brain and enable a person to recover from stroke, birth abnormalities. It is also beneficial in treating autism, ADD, learning disabilities and helps manage obsessive compulsive disorders.

Here are seven things you should know about neuroplasticity.

  1. Change depends on the attentiveness of the brain: Neuroplasticity changes can only happen if the brain is alert and active. When the brain is active it releases neurochemicals that are necessary for the neurone connections to change. If a person is distracted to inattentive, these changes cannot happen.
  2. The more the effort; the bigger the change: Neuroplasticity changes depend on how motivated the person is to change or learn new tasks. For this reason, when it comes to using neuroplasticity for physiotherapy, it is essential to first deal with any depression or anxiety issues the patient might be having before attempting to rehabilitate them.
  3. It helps strengthen neural connections: Repetition of actions is one of the key elements of neuroplasticity in physiotherapy. Through this, the strength of neurone connections is strengthened to include sensory information, movement and cognitive patterns.
  4. It improves cell to cell connections: This is crucial to a patient’s rehabilitation as it increases reliability and makes a person more independent. In turn, this makes behaviour patterns more reliable.
  5. It helps predict actions: A task can usually be broken down into a series of smaller tasks. For example, feeding oneself can be broken down into steps that begin with lifting a spoon and filling it with food to finally putting the spoon into your mouth. Hence, along with completing an action, the brain must also know what to do next. Neuroplasticity helps improve this associative flow and allows the brain to predict the next step.
  6. Changes can be temporary or permanent: Initial changes due to neuroplasticity are temporary ad only if the brain determines the experience to be desired is this change made permanent. This is why when treating mobility issues, patients are not always able to repeat tasks in the same way.
  7. Memory guides the learning: When making new neural connections through neuroplasticity, the brain is taught to discard unsuccessful attempts and only remember the experience of the successful attempts. From here, adjustments are made to improve the connection. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurosurgeon.

8 Common Migraine Triggers You Must Stay Away From

8 Common Migraine Triggers You Must Stay Away From
8 Common migraine triggers you need to know about

A neurological disease that occurs mostly on one side of the head, migraine is a severe headache that is characterised by a variety of symptoms, ranging from nausea and disturbed vision to sensitivity to light. Since the triggers of a migraine are many, it can be difficult to identify the exact cause of your pulsating headache.

Here are some of the common stimulants associated with migraine:

1. Fasting: Not taking proper meals, insufficient liquid intake and fasting can be a major trigger towards headaches and migraine. It could be associated to lowered blood glucose levels. Skipping meals or fasting must be completely avoided.

2. Sleep: Sleep can also be a trigger factor as well as a preventive factor for migraines. You can suffer from a migraine attack if you sleep too little or too much. Migraine caused by sleep problems usually arises when the brain’s serotonin (a compound that constricts blood vessels) production experiences a fluctuation, and there is a reduction of dopamine (a neurotransmitter that helps in the transmission of signals) levels. While the former neurotransmitter is necessary for regulating your sleep cycle, the latter is vital for helping you to focus. Several studies reveal that developing good sleep habits can bring about a reduction in the intensity as well as number of migraine attacks.

3. Stress: Another common migraine trigger is stress. Emotions like sadness, worry, shock and anxiety can cause migraine attacks as they bring about the release of migraine causing brain chemicals. At the same time, it is also commonly reported that a migraine may occur right after a stressful period, usually during the weekends, and is therefore called a weekend headache.

4. Food: Several studies show that migraines triggered by food occur in 10% of the world population. Many of the food items that cause a migraine attack contain a substance called tyramine or phenylethylamine. This substance can cause the nerve cells of your brain to release a chemical called norepinephrine. The increased quantity of the two (tyramine and norepinephrine) can lead to migraine attacks. These amino acids are present in aged cheese, chocolates, citrus fruits, nuts and soy foods.

5. Caffeine: Too much caffeine consumption can cause you to have a migraine attack. Ideally, you shouldn’t have more than 2 cups of caffeinated drinks (like coffee, tea and cola) a day to prevent yourself from experiencing migraine headaches.

6. Computer screens/ Sunlight: Sitting in front of your computer screen for a long time can trigger a migraine attack. It happens as muscle tension builds up around your head, neck and shoulder areas.To prevent the problem from occurring, you need to take regular breaks, use good lighting, and anti-glare screens.

7. Alcohol: Certain alcohols like red wine, beer, vermouth, and sherry contain substances such as tyramine, phenylethylamine, histamine, sulphites, and flavonoid phenols, all of which have been known to trigger migraine attacks. Red wine is considered to be the worst trigger, and you should avoid it if you suffer from migraine.

8. Exercise: Like sleep, even exercise has been reported to cause as well as prevent migraines. Exercising in a moderate and regular manner is known to prevent the onset of migraine.By doing so, you end up stimulating the release of the body’s natural painkillers, while improving your overall health. On the other hand, by exercising vigorously and without prior planning, your body’s demand for oxygen increases significantly, triggering an attack.

Migraine headaches can cause throbbing in one particular area that can vary in intensity. Nausea and sensitivity to light and sound are also common symptoms. Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

Alzheimer's disease in hindi - जाने क्या होता है अलजाइमर रोग?

Alzheimer's disease in hindi - जाने क्या होता है अलजाइमर रोग?

आप अपना चश्मा रखकर भूल सकते हैं, किसी का नाम भूल सकते हैं लेकिन अगर कहीं जाकर आप ये भूल जाएं कि आप यहां क्यों आए हैं, तो सचेत हो जाएं। खासकर अगर आपकी उम्र 50 से कम है तो ये खतरे की घंटी है। अल्जाइमर ज्यादातर 65 वर्ष की उम्र के आसपास होने वाली दिमाग से जुड़ी बीमारी है। ये एक न्यूरोलॉजिकल समस्या है जिसमें दिमाग की कोशिकाएं नष्ट होने से यादाश्त जाने लगती है। ये बीमारी शुरुआत में हल्के-फुल्के भूलने की आदत से शुरू होती है लेकिन धीरे-धीरे खतरनाक होती जाती है। अलजाइमर के मरीज के लिए शुरुआती दौर में तुरंत घटी घटनाओं को भी याद करना मुश्किल हो जाता है। साथ ही पुरानी यादें भी धीरे-धीरे खत्म हो जाती हैं। अलजाइमर की आखिरी स्टेज डिमेंशिया काफी खतरनाक होती है।

ये हैं शुरुआती लक्षण
अलजाइमर में यादाश्त कमजोर होने के साथ-साथ कुछ और भी लक्षण दिखाई देने लगते हैं जैसे- पहले लोगों के नाम भूल जाना, अपने विचारों को व्यक्त करने में कठिनाई, निर्देशों का पालन करने में दिक्कत, किसी बात को समझने में भी परेशानी होती है। बार-बार एक ही बात पूंछना, अपना सामान बार-बार खो देना, बहुत परिचित रास्ते में भी खो जाना वगैरह जैसे कुछ लक्षण शुरुआत में दिखाई दे सकते हैं। दो तिहाई लोगों में मनोवैज्ञानिक समस्याएं भी देखी जा सकती हैं। जैसे बात-बात पर चिड़चिड़ाना, गुस्सा करना और तनाव वगैरह। 
जैसे-जैसे रोगी अलजाइमर की मिडिल स्टेज पर पहुंचता है और आगे की स्टेज पर जाता है तो उसे कई तरह के भ्रम होने लगते हैं। रोगी कुछ ऐसी चीज दिखाई देने की बात कह सकता है जो उसके आसपास है ही नहीं, या उसे ऐसा लग सकता है कि उसे किसी ने छुआ है, कुछ सुनाई देना और किसी चीज की खुशबू आना वगैरह।

आखिर क्यों होता है अलजाइमर
अभी तक अल्जाइमर रोग की सही वजह पता नहीं हैं लेकि न कुछ रिसर्चेस के मुताबिक, अल्जाइमर रोग शायद आनुवंशिक असर, लाइफ स्टाइल और दिमाग को प्रभावित करने वाले आसपास के फैक्टर की वजह से होता है।

रिस्क फैक्टर
कुछ विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि उम्र के साथ हमारे मस्तिष्क की कुछ कोशिकाएं नष्ट हो जाती हैं या संदेश पहुंचने में गड़बड़ी होने लगती है। अगर आपके परिवार में किसी को ये बीमारी है तो आपको ये रोग होने की संभावन बढ़ जाती है। इसके अलावा डायबिटीज, हृदय रोग, मोटापा और सिर में चोट के इतिहास वाले लोगों में ये बीमारी होने का खतरा ज्यादा रहता है। हालांकिी इस बीमारी में उम्र सबसे बड़ा रिस्क फैक्टर है। ये बीमारी ज्यादातर 60 की उम्र पार कर चुके लोगों को होती है। कम उम्र में भी आप अलजाइमर के शिकार हो सकते हैं। 80 साल की उम्र तक पहुंचते-पहुंचते छह में से एक व्यक्तिा में ये बीमारी देखी जा सकती है। 

जांच
अलजाइमर का पता शुरुआती दिनों में चल जाए तो बेहतर रहता है। अगर अलजाइमर का शक हो तो स्पेशलिस्ट डॉक्टर से मिलें। वह मरीज से बातचीत करके अंदाजा लगा सकता है। इसके बाद मरीज को सीटी स्कैन, एमआरआई और पीईटी जैसे टेस्ट करवाने पड़ सकते हैं। 

बचाव
अलजाइमर को एक लाइलाज बीमारी माना जाता है। अगर आप रिस्क फैक्टर में आते हैं तो बचाव के लिए यहां दिए उपाय किए जा सकते हैं।

1. अपने वज़न का नियंत्रण, पौष्टिक भोजन लें, अच्छी मात्रा में ताज़े फल और सब्जी खाएं।
2. नियमित व्यायाम करें।
3. मानसिक रूप से सक्रिय रहें, कुछ नया सीखें और नए शौक विकसित करें।
4. उचित कदम लेकर हृदय रोग की संभावना कम करें।
5. मेल-जोल बढ़ाएं, दोस्त बनाएं और खुश रहें।
6. मैडीटेरेनियन आहार (मछली, जैतून का तेल, प्रचुर मात्र में सब्जियां) लेने से अलजाइमर के लक्षणों को कंट्रोल किया जा सकता है।
7. हल्दी में मिलने वाले करक्यूमिन को नैनोतकनीक से नैनो-पार्टिकल में एनकैप्सूलेट कर अल्जाइमर का प्रभावी इलाज में मददगार हो सकते हैं।
8. 40 की आयु पार कर जाने के बाद अपने भोजन में बादाम, टमाटर, मछली आदि को नियमित रूप से शामिल करना चाहिए। 

करें योग
योग एक ऐसा माध्यम है जिसे निरंतर करने से इस बीमारी का हल निकाला जा सकता है। एक्सपर्टों का कहना है कि इस बीमारी को शुरुआत में पता लगते ही व्यायाम करना शुरू कर देना चाहिए। इतना ही नहीं निरंतर योग करने से याद्दाश्त भी बढ़ती है। इसलिए अलजाइमर के पीड़ितों को रोजाना 20 से 25 मिनट योगा करना चाहिए।

I have a migraine pain over 3 years. I m taking some medicine as prescribed by doctor, but it not much helpful. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.

Treatment for thalassemia major often involves regular blood transfusions and folate supplements. If you receive blood transfusions, you should not take iron supplements. Doing so can cause a high amount of iron to build up in the body, which can be harmful. Persons who receive a lot of blood transfusions need a treatment called chelation therapy. This is done to remove excess iron from the body. A bone marrow transplant may help treat the disease in some patients, especially children.

I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.

Do You Think You are Suffering from Brain Tumor? 10 Signs You Must Take Seriously

Do You Think You are Suffering from Brain Tumor? 10 Signs You Must Take Seriously

A Brain Tumour can be defined as an abnormal growth of the tissues in the brain, which can disrupt the proper brain functions. Generally, the cells in the human body die and are replaced by new cells, while in the case of a tumour, the old cells do not die and form an accumulation and continues to grow to form a mass as more and more cells are added to it.

Symptoms of Brain Tumour:

  1. Headache: Having headache on regular basis, without any history of having such frequent headaches in past, which becomes worse because of other pressure related activities, such as sneezing, coughing, exercising might be a possible symptom of brain tumour and issues related to such sudden and frequent headaches should be taken up with the doctor without any further delay.
  2. Seizures: Seizures (fits) are amongst the most common symptoms of brain tumour, which might be limited to a particular body part or the whole body. Seizures might even continue after the treatment of brain tumour because of the left scar tissues in the brain.
  3. Numbness in arms/legs: Numbness in any body part, especially arms and legs should also be get evaluated timely, so that, if the possible reason behind them is a brain tumour, then the same could be treated well on time.
  4. Balancing problems: Poor coordination and balancing problems also arise as the most prominent symptom for the brain tumour and hence such small changes must be evaluated and the person suffering should be taken to a doctor immediately to get treated without any delay.
  5. Memory problems: Lack of concentration, poor memory and short term memory loss are few of the possible symptoms that indicate the presence of tumour.
  6. Nausea or vomiting: Nausea or vomiting might be the symptoms of many other possible health issues, but a headache supported by nausea and/or vomiting is one of the many symptoms of a brain tumour and hence should not be ignored.
  7. Facial paralysis: The inability to keep the facial activities under control also indicates the presence of a possible brain tumour and the same should also be diagnosed as soon as one experiences it.
  8. Change in vision: A person suffering from brain tumour might also experience changes in the vision, dizziness, blurry vision, among other sight related issues.
  9. Change in speech: The inability to speak properly and changes in the speech of a person may also indicate a possible presence of a tumour.
  10. Hearing problems: Sudden occurrence of hearing problems and other hearing related disorders might have the brain tumour as a possible reason.

Diagnosing a brain tumour may include one or more of many tests, including CT scan, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Angiogram and biopsy. One should never ignore the symptoms of the brain tumour and should get himself/herself checked since the brain tumours might result into permanent damages to the brain; hence such issues should never be ignored. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.
