Whatever tablets you using first consult to doctor about that. Because different types of medicines have there own side effect. Must consult to doctor for unwanted contraceptive pills.

Healthy Gut OR Host for Parasite

Healthy Gut OR Host for Parasite

Healthy Gut OR Host for Parasite

Intestinal parasites-Tape warm, ring warm, thread worm, Whip worm........You would have heard about them.

We all are living in an environment full of toxins and Parasites. Toxins makes our immunity weak, let the parasite get entered into our blood and get settled in our gut. And now whatever good we are having is not nourishing us, but firstly to our tiny unwanted guest.

The signs of a parasite can often appear unrelated and unexplained. It is typically seen, parasites causes more constipation in patients than diarrhoea, but some parasites are capable of changing the fluid balance in your gut and causes diarrhoea. Trouble sleeping, skin irritations, mood changes, and muscle pain can all be caused by the toxins that parasites release into the bloodstream. These toxins often cause anxiety, which can manifest itself in different ways. For instance, waking up in the middle of the night or grinding your teeth in your sleep are signs that your body is experiencing anxiety while you rest. When these toxins interact with your neurotransmitters or blood cells, they can cause mood swings or skin irritation, Rashes or Itchiness.

Few others signs are:

 

You can get infected by:

- Walking barefoot in the garden, playground or any infected soil; for example, hookworm larvae burrow through the skin of bare feet.

- Ingesting worm eggs through eating fruits, vegetables, grains, fish and meat contaminated with roundworm or whip worm.

- Washing fruits and vegetables with contaminated water.

- Transfer of the parasitic worms from pets to owner.

- Coming in contact with the soil that has been contaminated with human faeces from an infected person.

- Not washing hands with soap and water after defecating. Open air defecation also increases the risk of worm infestation.

 

Worm infestation affects normal growth in children and can cause malnutrition in adults too. Thus, it is recommended to de-worm babies in every six months after they turn one. De-worming medication kills adult worms but not the eggs + new infection form above mentioned sources makes repetition of the dose in every six months vital, even in adults too.

 

In Ayurveda, there are natural remedies for de- worming. That are safe and effective:

  • Ajwain (carom seeds): Ajwain seeds taken with jaggery dissolved in cold water early in the morning expels worms during defecation.
  • Castor Oil : Take 1 spoon Castor oil and eat 10 gm Sugar on an empty stomach. One of the best remedy for all intestinal parasite. (It can raise the frequency of defecation) 
  • Bael (Bengal quince, wood apple): The fruit kills the worm within the body which is then expelled with stools.
  • Palasha (flame of the forest): Effective in treating roundworms. Take the seeds with buttermilk twice daily.
  • Tulsi (sweet basil): Seeds of Tulsi in water or even chewing the leaves on an empty stomach is an effective remedy for all parasitic worms, including tapeworm.

So protect yourself and your loved ones from intestinal parasites. Keep your gut Happy and yourself Healthy.

Hello It is important to know what pills you have taken and in what sequence. Usually pain starts within 3 -4 hours followed by bleeding. Pills for medical abortion if not taken the right way may not be effective. You can wait till tomorrow morning but if the bleeding does not start pls get in touch with gynaecologist.

Hello- it is not advisable to conceive pregnancy before three years of previous one. >this is due to the reason that the fertile organs (uterus) and the body vitality is so much reduced after the delivery that it can lead to complication if conceived earlier. It will not only effect the health of the mother but also the health of new born. >so wait for another two year to plan your pregnancy.

Hello, follow these home remedies to your periods regularly. 1. Tomato is also very helpful in curing this ailment. All you need to do is consume two to three glasses of tomato juice on daily basis. This will prove to be very effective for blood circulation. This is one of the most effective home remedies for absence of menstruation. 2.Aloe vera helps treat menstrual irregularities naturally by regulating your hormones. Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf. Mix in one teaspoon of honey. Consume it daily before having your breakfast. Follow this remedy for about three months. Please do not use this remedy during your periods.

Regarding continuing or not, the decision is made after knowing last menses date. If its corresponding to the fetal 6 weeks age, then just wait and repeat the ultrasound after 7-10 days. This repeat ultrasound must show fetal growth, pole and fetal heart. If its seen its a good pregnancy so continue. If the repeat scan is not showing pole or heart rate or if present ultrasound is showing lesser growth than required then seek consultation from expert gynecologist.
