I am suffering from fever and cough and my weight is very low so I feel very weak and my height is also very low.
My son age 8 years old have very lean and unhealthy looks, He is not interested in eating food more, avoid drinking milks tooo. Much worried abt his health concern. please recommend some gud supplements for him.
My daughter is 9 months, we had vaccination on 16th Jan and after that from 19th Jan she was having fever, as climate change doctor prescribed her "Calpol Drops" but as the fever continued doctor advised to give her Antibiotic "Flemiclav" but as the fever increased to 103° - 104° F, we got her blood test and got her admitted as got a LUMP on left cervical area. We did sonography and the report says *"MULTIPLE ENLARGE MATTED lymph nodes IN THE LEFT UPPER cervical REGION"* (IN THE REGION OF SWELLING). We are very scared by this, as doctors is asking for TB to Cancer in family history and to get Biopsy test done. My concern is my baby is only 9 months old, should I go for biopsy? And biopsy will be painful to her after the anesthesia, when she is conscious. Request you to reply, I will be highly obliged.
Is it OK for a baby of 16 months to travel to native place. Will the change of water and air create any heath issues. Traveling from Mumbai to bangalore.
Your mother has often yelled at you for playing video games for long hours but obviously you haven’t paid heed to it. Such is the obsession with video games that they don’t let you rest unless you have championed all the levels in the virtual interface. Here is the source of all problems. Studies have revealed that video games have a direct relation to neurological disorders. As a result, many health experts across the world consider video game as a kind of health abuse.
People who play action-oriented video games are at higher risks. The more you indulge in these kinds of games, the more they are going to affect the hippocampus section of your brain. It is that part of the brain which is considered to be the centre of your nervous system, memory, and emotion. This has a detrimental effect on your overall brain health.
Let us see some of the signs which may indicate the onset of certain complications arising from an over indulgence in these games.
1. You spend hours on the computer or related gaming devices and devote lesser hours for your family and friends.
2. You get agitated when someone stops you midway through the game
3. You become socially isolated and show signs of occasional mood swings
4. You are unable to keep a track of time once you start playing
5. You repeatedly neglect your studies, resulting in a dip in performance at school
Why does this happen?
All of the above signs indicate that sooner or later you might develop neurological problems. When you spend an excessive number of hours on playing and navigating through the games, the ‘hippocampus’ portion of your brain shows signs of decreased gray matter. As a result, the volume of the hippocampus shrinks, causing severe nerve related disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression, and overall general stress.
One of the biggest reasons behind this is a lack of self-control. Most of the video games will encourage you to steal cars, run away after a theft and kill your enemies. Moreover, if you succeed, you are rewarded. This naturally unleashes a blatant urge for the gratification of all these awkward desires in your real life too. Hence, once you are encountered with the reality, you tend to show violent behavior.
