All About Meningitis

All About Meningitis

Arguably one of the most fatal diseases that threaten human life, Meningitis has been the cause of a lot of recent deaths. Essentially Meningitis is triggered off by the anomalous inflammation of the protective membranes called meninges in the brain and spinal cord. Spurred by some sort of a bacterial or viral attack, this condition emanates from an infection of the fluids in the cranial chamber. Often such conditions are also stimulated by some external injury, cancerous development or even certain kinds of reaction from a given drug or the other. 

Depending on the precise cause of the disease, Meningitis may be categorized as Bacterial Meningitis, Viral Meningitis or Fungal Meningitis. Other forms of Meningitis include parasitic Meningitis, Amebic Meningitis and Non-Infectious Meningitis. Meningitis could potentially be contagious. Through lengthy and proximal contact like coughing or kissing, if saliva or spit gets exchanged, Meningitis causing germs may spread from one person to the other.

Bacterial Meningitis
Streptococcus pneumoniae and Neisseria Meningitidis are the two of the most rampant Meningitis causing bacteria. They have the potential of causing irreversible damage to several vital organs. However, with substantive progress in medical science, effective and suitable medication has been made available to the larger populace. But, immediate attention is imperative in this case.

Viral Meningitis
Viral Meningitis is relatively milder than the other forms of meningitis. Enteroviruses, arboviruses and herpes virus are some of the most common sources of this kind of Meningitis. People with strong immunity are usually able to overcome this without much ado. Vaccines are available widely in the markets to cure viral meningitis.

Fungal Meningitis
Fungal Meningitis are caused primarily from external influences. Inhaling fungal spores from the environment is one of the most prominent factors that lead to Meningitis. People suffering from fatal diseases like cancer, diabetes or HIV are more susceptible to fungal Meningitis. While these are a few of the primary forms of meningitis, other triggers to this disease occur due to various environmental interventions. These are consequent upon interactions with various disease causing allergens. Cure to meningitis is available in the form of surgery or sustained medication.

Calculating your fertile / infertile (safe) period is simple. Follow the steps given below find the last period start date find out shortest and longest period cycles by observing your period cycles for atleast 6 months illustrative example of calculating fertile period shortest cycle=27 days longest cycle=28 days subtract 18 days from the shortest cycle 27-18=9 days subtract 10 days from the longest cycle 28-10=18 days the 9th day to 18 th day from your last period is the unsafe period the rest is the safe period.

Sweet Potatoes & Their Benefits
According to a study led by a university of vienna professor Dr. Berharhard ludvik, published in the journal of diabetes care, t2dm patients who ate sweet potatoes saw a significant reduction in blood sugar levels and overall improvement in glucose control.
As sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and have a low glycemic index, hence are a good source food in diabetics. Cooking methods preferred are by roasting with skin intact or sauteing in oil, as fats also delay carbohydrate absorption. Boiled or mashed sweet potatoes are not recommended as the digestion is faster.
Sweet potatoes are also good post work out snacking option. Sweet potatoes with skin are a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. The carbohydrates are are a great source to replenish your glycogen stores after an intense bout of exercise.

You have irregular periods. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs. Keep your weight normal as compared to your height. This will definitely help you in your periods.

M planning for my baby. I want to have twins child is there any process from which I can have twins.
No dear there is no such way for having twins as such, but IVF treated can sometimes have multiple pregnancies. So can just try if want that way. But of course pregnancy itself is a joy,(single or twin ).Take care.

so which homeopathy medicine would you suggest? Also wanna know that can I do massage to uplift the saggy cheek in a upward motion and massage acupressure points to uplift my saggy side of cheek? Will this help? And which face exercise you would suggest me to do? Please help.

Eat healthy food and do yoga. Pranayama can also be beneficial. Visit a doctor for general checkup and do some tests like CBC, blood sugar levels, thyroid tests etc. Revert after the reports. You can start Homeopathy if required after a detailed case history (personal history ).

Possibility though slim, but cannot be ruled out, so we suggest you wait patiently for your next periods, and only if you miss your due date you will have to do a urine pregnancy test to confirm for pregnancy.

To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.
