Safed Daag Treatment In Hindi - सफेद दाग में परहेज

Safed Daag Treatment In Hindi - सफेद दाग में परहेज

सफ़ेद दाग त्वचा की समस्या है जिसमें आपके त्वचा पर किसी भी जगह सफेद धब्बे उभरने लगते हैं. इसे ल्यूकोर्डमा या विटिलाइगो के नाम से भी जाना जाता है. इसमें शरीर के विभिन्न भागों की त्वचा पर सफेद दाग बनने लग जाते हैं. यह इसलिए होता है क्योंकि त्वचा में वर्णक (रंग) बनाने वाली कोशिकाएं नष्ट हो जाती हैं, इन कोशिकाओं को मेलेनोसाइट्स कहा जाता है. सफेद दाग रोग श्लेष्मा झिल्ली (मुंह और नाक के अंदर के ऊतक) और आंखों को भी प्रभावित करते हैं. सफेद दाग के संकेत और लक्षण में त्वचा का रंग खराब हो जाना, या सफेद हो जाना, शरीर के किसी भी भाग की त्वचा पर दाग पड़ जाना. ये सफेद दाग शरीर में सिर्फ एक भाग पर भी हो सकते हैं या कई भागों में अलग-अलग फैल सकते हैं. इसके ठोस कारण के बारे में अभी तक पता नहीं चल पाया, हालांकि कुछ विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि यह स्व: प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली की एक स्थिति होती है. उनके अनुसार सफेद दाग तब होते हैं, जब शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली गलती से त्वचा की कुछ कोशिकाओं को नष्ट कर देती है.
क्या है सफेद दाग का उपचार
सफेद दाग रोग में अनुवांशिकी घटक होते हैं, जो एक परीवार में एक व्यक्ति से दूसरों में भी फैल सकते हैं. सफेद दाग कई बार अन्य चिकित्सा स्थितियों से भी जुड़े होते हैं, जिसमें थायरॉयड रोग भी शामिल हैं. इस बात को निर्धारित नहीं किया जा सकता कि ये सफेद दाग एक ही जगह पर रहेंगे या अन्य भागों में भी फैल जाएंगे. सफेद दाग कोई दर्दनाक बीमारी या रोग नहीं है, और ना ही इसमें स्वास्थ्य से जुड़े कोई अन्य दुष्प्रभाव हैं. हालांकि, इसमें भावनात्मक और मनोवैज्ञानिकी परिणाम हो सकते हैं. कई चिकित्सा उपचार इसकी कठोरता को कम तो कर सकते हैं मगर इसका इलाज करना काफी कठिन है. सफेद दागों पर रोकथाम पाने के लिए कोई तरीका नहीं मिल पाया है. ऐसा कोई घरेलू नुस्खा भी नहीं है जिससे इसका उपचार या रोकथाम की जा सके, लेकिन प्रभावित त्वचा पर सन स्क्रीन का प्रयोग या डाई आदि का प्रयोग करके दिखावट में सुधार किया जा सकता है. 
भारत में सफेद दाग रोग की स्थिति
डर्मेटोलॉजिकल के प्रसार के मामले 9.25 प्रतिशत और विटिलाइगो के प्रसार के मामले 9.98 प्रतिशत थे. इनमें से स्थिर प्रकार के विटिलाइगो के मामले 65.21 प्रतिशत आंके गए और जिन लोगों के निचले होठ के नीचे दाग (म्यूकोसल विटिलाइगो) थे उनकी संख्या 75 प्रतिशत थी. शरीर के निचले भागों में सफेद दाग का होना विटिलाइगो की शुरूआत का सबसे सामान्य संकेत होता है. विटिलाइगो से ग्रसित लोगों में ज्याादतर लोग 40 साल की उम्र से पहले इस बीमारी से ग्रसित हो चुके जाते, और इनकी आधी संख्या के करीब लोग 20 साल की उम्र से पहले विटिलाइगो का शिकार बन जाते हैं.
सफेद दाग में परहेज़
सफ़ेद दाग की समस्या उत्पन होने पर या जब आपको पता चल जाता है कि आपको ये समस्या है तब आप कुछ सावधानियां बरतकर इसके प्रभाव को काफी हद तक कम कर सकते हैं. इसमें आपको कुछ फलों का परहेज करना लाभकारी साबित होता है. इन फलों में संतरा, करौंदा, सीताफल, अमरूद, सूखा आलूबुखारा, काजू, तरबूज, खरबूज आदि. इन फलों से परहेज करके आप सफेद दाग को फैलने से रोकने में कुछ हद तक कामयाब हो सकते हैं.
इन सब्जियों का हबी करें परहेज
सफेद दाग में फलों के साथ-साथ कुछ सब्जियां का भी आपको इस्तेमाल कम या नहीं करना चाहिए. इन सब्जियों में बैंगन, लाल सोराल, अजमोद, पपीता, नींबू, टमाटर आदि. ऐसा करने से आप इसके प्रभाव को फैलने से रोक सकेंगे.
इसके अलावा आप इमली, लहसुन और दूध उप्तपाद जैसे: दूध दही या छेना छाछ गैर-शाकाहारी खाद्य पदार्थ जैसे: मछली लाल मीट बीफ (गांय का मांस) अन्य खाद्य पदार्थ जैसे: जंक फूड चॉकलेट कॉफी सोढ़ा बाइ कार्ब कार्बोनेटिड पेय पदार्थ चिकनी, तीखी और मसालेदार चीजें जैसे, अचार आदि से भी परहेज करें ताकि सफेद दाग की समस्या से प्रभावी ढंग से निपट सकें.

Viral Warts and Its Solution With Homeopathy

Viral Warts and Its Solution With Homeopathy

A wart (also known as verruca) is generally a small, rough tumor, typically on hands and feet but often other locations, that can resemble a solid blister.

Warts are a type of infection caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. There are more than 100 types of HPV viruses. Warts can grow on all parts of body. They can grow on skin, on the inside of mouth, on genitals and on rectal area. Common types of HPV tend to cause warts on the skin (such as the hands and fingers), while other HPV types tend to cause warts on the genitals and rectal area. Some people are more naturally resistant to the HPV viruses and don’t seem to get warts as easily as other people.

Warts come in all shapes and sizes. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and can happen to any individual, irrespective of age or sex. They can grow on external skin, genitalia and even on the rectal area. Viral warts are contagious when one comes into contact with the skin of infected person. Sometimes they disappear on their own in a few months and at other times, they can last for years. Usually harmless in nature, warts become a cause of concern due to their unsightly appearance. 

Common Homeopathic Remedies: 

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The homeopathic remedies for warts given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition.

Homeopathy is a medicinal repository when we talk about treating viral warts. Medication is selected after a careful examination of the patient and considering his/her medical history. Here are some of the most advisable homeopathic medicines that are usually prescribed for viral warts. 

  1. Thuja Occidentalis: Thuja is one of the most commonly prescribed homeopathic medicines for various kinds of warts. Especially if no other remedy is clearly prescribed, Thuja can be considered. 
  2. Antimonium Crudum (Ant-c): This remedy works best for hard and smooth warts which appear in groups. These kinds of warts are often found on soles and hands. 
  3. Calcarea Carbonica (Cal C.): Useful for treating warts that appear on the neck, this homeopathic remedy treats warts that are round, hard and appear solitarily. 
  4. Causticum (Caust.): This remedy treats old, large warts that usually appear on the face (nose), under the fingernails or even on the fingertips. Such warts are hard, painful and bleed easily. 
  5. Dulcamara (Dulc.): Flat looking warts appearing on the face and hands call for this remedy. These warts are brown to blackish in colour and get worse in cold or damp weather. 
  6. Graphites (Graph.): This remedy works for warts that are periungual or corn-like in appearance. They appear on palms or soles of the feet and have a yellowish tinge. This medicine also works for patients of eczema

Different individuals respond differently to homeopathic treatments. It is important to take a holistic approach to the case in point and start treatment accordingly. We have treated more than 1200 such cases with Homeopathic treatment, so that dermatologists refers patients to us. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Does Drinking Water Help In Improving Skin Health?

Does Drinking Water Help In Improving Skin Health?

Approximately 60% of the human body consists of water. It is one of the most important components that help in the process of digestion, blood circulation, mineral absorption and even excretion, ensuring smooth functioning of your system. A mere drop in the water content of your body can lead to dehydration, which can affect your body in more than one ways. Dehydration can also take a toll on your skin leaving it dry and lifeless. In order to ensure the health of your skin, it is highly recommended to keep your system hydrated.

How drinking water affects the skin?

  1. Keeps skin soft:  Skin is made up of 3 layers namely, epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. When the water content of the outermost layer of the epidermis is insufficient, your skin tends to lose elasticity and feel rough.  Intake of adequate water hydrates the skin cells and makes them function properly, making your skin soft and supple.
  2. Moisturizes dry skin and lessens the appearance of wrinkles:  Insufficient intake of water makes your skin appear dry and flaky; such a skin is more prone to wrinkling. When you drink sufficient water your skin cells hydrate from within. Hydrated skin is resilient in nature and therefore, it has less chance of suffering from premature wrinkling.
  3. Improves skin tone: Water is known for its abilities to flush out toxins from your system and for maintaining the proper functioning of your kidneys.  Sufficient intake of water ensures that harmful toxins and impurities are regularly flushed out of your system, thereby, adding a healthy glow to your skin. 
  4. Makes your skin appear younger:  It is advised to drink minimum 8 glasses of water a day to keep your body hydrated. The condition of your health can be analyzed from the condition of your skin, as a body that is hydrated well, makes your skin appear healthy too.
  5. Get rid of dark circles:  The problem of dark circles arise over the years due to the damage of the capillaries under the eyes. The skin around the eyes is thinner than facial skin, which hinders the smooth flow of fluid through them. Plenty intake of water on a regular basis can reduce the appearance of dark circles dramatically, making your skin appear healthy.

Black spots on the face may be of- birth mark, chloasma, tanning of skin in sun, due to deficiency of nutrients, marks of pimples etc. Eat healthy diet and consume one fruit daily for glowing skin. Drink plenty of water. Apply raw milk on face before bathing. Use masoor dal face pack once in a week.
