Breastfeeding - 5 Benefits of It!

Breastfeeding - 5 Benefits of It!

A mother’s milk is said to be the most nutritious food for a new born baby. It contains the perfect balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals needed for your baby and changes to keep up with your baby’s growing needs. However, the benefits of breastfeeding extend way beyond nutritional value. Breastfeeding is beneficial for both you and your baby. Ideally, a baby should be breastfed for at least the first six months.

Here are 5 major benefits of breastfeeding.

  1. Stronger immunity: Mother’s milk is rich in antibodies and a number of unique compounds that help the newborn child’s body fight bacterial and viral infections. No other form of baby food is as rich in these antibodies. Babies who have been breastfed have a lower risk of suffering from ailments such as ear infection, stomach upsets and respiratory problems. The first milk expressed by a woman’s breasts after giving birth is known as colostrums. This milk coats the baby’s digestive system and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
  2. Fewer allergies: Breast milk is easier to digest than formula or cow’s milk. This protects the gastrointestinal passages from inflammation and prevents undigested food from triggering allergic reactions. Being breastfed can also reduce the number of allergies a child may suffer from in their later years.
  3. Healthy body weight: Breastfeeding makes a child less likely to suffer from obesity in their later childhood and adult years. This is because breast milk contains less insulin and more hormones as compared to formula. This helps regulate fat absorption. On an average, babied fed on formula put on weight quickly and are more likely to overeat in their later years.
  4. Stronger bones: Breastfeeding is beneficial for both the child and the mother. When a woman is breastfeeding her child, her body’s ability to absorb calcium increases. This helps increase bone density, especially as pregnancy can make bones weak.
  5. Builds a strong mother-child bond: After 9 months of carrying a child to term, giving birth may lead to post partum depression and a mother may feel the connection between her and the child severed. Breastfeeding helps nurture this connection and provides emotional relief to both the mother and child. For the mother, this experience releases hormones that reduce stress and relax the body. For the baby, close physical contact is very important and this process provides the perfect opportunity to do so. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Even A Caregiver Needs To Be Taken Care Of - Ensuring Mommy's Health On Mother's Day!

Even A Caregiver Needs To Be Taken Care Of - Ensuring Mommy's Health On Mother's Day!

Mothers are nature’s original, and finest, caregivers. From parents to spouse to children to in-laws to extended family to yes, sometimes even neighbors, mothers come factory-fitted with caretaking skills that make sure everyone has well looked after. Which makes Mother’s Day the perfect opportunity to turn all that loving attention back to where it belongs, moms. Here are some ideas to ensure that mothers are taken care of, not just on the 13th of May i.e. the day we celebrate as Mother’s Day this year but all year long.

  1. A health check-up: Mothers, especially those past 35, are prone to health issues like anemia i.e shortage of hemoglobin in the blood, which can cause weakness, osteoporosis which is the deficiency of calcium & vitamin D, that can cause brittle bones, weight gain, breast cancer and mood swings., etc. An annual check-up package comprising routine examinations and visits to the doctor is a great way to keep a watchful eye on their well-being.
  2. Regular exercise: While most mothers get a certain amount of ‘workout’ naturally as they go about their daily chores, that’s usually not enough. Family members must, therefore, ensure that mothers don’t skip their daily dose of exercise. This can be anything from a morning or evening walk to yoga to a gym regimen.
  3. A helping hand: While a mother will never confess it, even she needs a break. After all, she works tirelessly all day and has a right to feel exhausted once in a while. It is the responsibility of family members to take responsibility for the homework of a mother’s list. Apart from refreshing her, this will allow her the opportunity to explore hobbies, spend quality time with the family and catch up with friends.
  4. A patient ear: Perhaps what a mother needs the most is a friend or a confidant. An emotional support for the highs and lows they go through every day. While daughters are best suited for this role, anyone close to a mother can make an effort to be supportive and understanding. Respecting her opinions and choices, hearty conversations and a patient ear can make a mother smile with joy, and glow with happiness.

Mothers are heaven’s gift to us. This Mother’s Day, let’s gift her something in return. One that says “Thank you for taking care of me”. Let’s take care of mom’s health. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Daily brisk walk for 60 minutes can reduce blood glucose by atleast 20mg/dl. It also reduces blood pressure by 10/6 mm of mercury. It has an excellent mood elevating effect, keeps depression away, and also helpful in reducing blood cholesterol levels. It also keeps arthritis away. Walk can be done anytime of the day as per one's convenience. Hence keep walking, motivate others to walk. Try to walk atleast 10, 000 steps a day. Use a pedometer in your smart phone to keep a track. Its free!

As such no serious reason is seen but due to frequent urination chances of infection or? calculi may be there. Drink plenty of water and coconut water and sugar cane juice, avoid spicy food for few days. May take two tablet of chandraprabhavati or tablet bangashil two times in a day with coconut water for ten days and report.

STDs: Myths and Facts

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
STDs: Myths and Facts

Though sexually transmitted diseases affect a number of people, it is considered a taboo subject and not often talked about. This has given rise to a lot of misinformation and myths about it. Let's clear up a few of these myths.

Myth: Herpes Virus can be transmitted through a toilet seat.
Using the same toilet as a person infected with herpes will not increase your risk of contracting the virus. Herpes spreads only through direct skin-to-skin contact. However, it is a good idea not to share personal care items like towels, soaps etc with a person suffering from an STD.

Myth: STDs are transmitted only through vaginal sex. 
If you are in direct contact with any kind of body fluid of the person suffering from an STD, you can get infected too. STDs can be transmitted through any form of intercourse including oral, vaginal and anal sex. Thus, always use a condom for any kind of sexual act.

Myth: Baby oil can be used to lubricate a condom
In some situations, you may need to lubricate a condom before use. Oil-based lubricants like baby oil, Vaseline and hand creams should never be used to lubricate a condom. This is because they can break down latex and allow STDs to pass through. Instead use water soluble lubricants like contraceptive jellies. You could also use saliva. 

Myth: You can't get an STD if you've had sex only once

STDs like Chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis have a very high infection rate. Having unprotected sex once is more than enough to get infected with the virus. 

Myth: Two condoms are better than one
Condoms are not designed to be layered and used. Using two condoms instead of one may result in the condoms breaking due to the frictions between them. A condom must also be never reused. It should be put on as soon as there is n erection to protect against early ejaculation.

Myth: You can catch an STD only once
Some STDs like HIV and herpes are infections that last a lifetime. Others can be treated with antibiotics and antivirals. However, once you have recovered from an STD you are at the same risk of catching it again as you were the first time. When it comes to STDs like Chlamydia, a second attack can be worse than the first time and cause lasting damage to your reproductive organs. 

The only way to protect yourself from STDs is to abstain from unprotected sex. Always use a condom for any kind of intercourse. Homeopathy play very important role in improving patients immunity and help fight infection through body's defense mechanisms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Ovashield ds is to be taken from 3rd day. It is for ovulation induction. Rest of the medicine is for better outcome. Your age is already 34 then better go for ivf as iui has failed.
