Anger is one letter away from Danger

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Anger is one letter away from Danger
How to control anger? Although the senses require a certain amount of satisfaction, unless regulated they become like wild horses, forcing one to obey their whims. Craving the objects of their satisfaction, the senses take control of the mind and intelligence, leading to frustration and anger when their impossible demands go unmet.From this anger, delusion arises, and from delusion, bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, human intelligence is lost, leaving one in a hell of irrational behavior. As fever is a symptom of some disease in the body, anger is a symptom of ongoing material hankerings. Just as treating fever alone will not cure the disease, treating anger without understanding it to be a symptom of lust will not extinguish the unwanted behavior. To conquer anger, we must first ask how we shall conquer lust

Lord Buddha said that retaining anger is like ‘holding a live coal intending to throw it at someone else.
How can we deal with anger? Thomas Jef­ferson suggests, “When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, count hundred.” Con­sciously delaying action is useful in checking angry outbursts.

Humorous but works : When you are angry , pay a handsome amount to a good cause. In this way you would never get angry

When things go wrong, it is natural to feel angry. Yet just because it is natural doesn’t make it desirable. Of course, neither is it desirable to be passive amidst injustices; we need to be assertive and do what we can to set the situation right. But our response should alleviate the problem, not aggravate it.

And anger almost always aggravates the problem. When we become angry, we frequently lose control of ourselves. Or more precisely anger takes control of us using a provocative situation as a front.

And then anger makes us do things that we would never do normally. Things that may break others’ hearts. Things that may become lifelong wounds in our relationships. Things that we may regret for years.

In addition to all these long-term fallouts, anger extracts a heavy cost in the short-term too. After giving us a fleeting feeling of control and power, anger abandons us, embarrassingly and distressingly ensnared in a predicament worse than the original problem.

In fact, anger sometimes does worse than worsening the existing problem. Anger may create an entirely new problem – a problem that is bigger than the original problem. The original problem may might have been an unpleasant situation, but our angry response that starts off as a justified expression of displeasure (“I can’t tolerate such uncleanliness”) soon transmogrifies into a heart-breaking character attack (“You are a lousy fool, a shameless rogue, a wretched curse in my life”).

No wonder the Bhagavad-Gita (16.21) cautions that anger is one of the gates to hell – it propels us into hellish situations even in this world. Therefore the next verse (16.22) urges us to meticulously avoid the insidious influence of anger and thereby become free to act in our enlightened best interests.

The man who has escaped these three gates of hell, O son of Kunti, performs acts conducive to self-realization and thus gradually attains the supreme destination.

It is difficult to say whether it is complete or not. But if you had bleed for 7 days and than stopped than it is more likely complete. You should have to wait for next period. If it comes normally than it is complete and if bleeding stars and continue to bleed than there is more chance of incomplete abortion. It should be explained to you by doctor who prescribe you tablets and take consent. Just have to wait for next cycle. Don't do urine pregnancy test because it is going to be positive for 1 or 2 months. Before that you can do Sonography to confirm that is there anything there or not.

I am 28 years and having pcod. I am irregular with periods with a gap of 50-60 days. This month I didnt get periods after 75 days. What shall I do?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Researchers have also linked insulin to pcos because many women with this condition also have too much insulin in their bodies. High levels of insulin cause the ovaries to produce more male hormones. Women with pcos have also been found to have low-grade inflammation, contributing to insulin resistance. The exact cause of pcos, however, is still unknown. Yet, genetics is considered an important factor as pcos seems to run in families. Spearmint tea can also help deal with pcos due to its anti-androgenic properties. A study published in the journal phytotherapy research found that drinking spearmint tea can help reduce hirsutism, or excess body hair, by reducing free and total testosterone levels and increasing luteinizing hormone (lh) and follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) levels. 1. Boil one cup of water in a pan. 2. Add one teaspoon of dried spearmint leaves. 3. Let it simmer for five to 10 minutes. 4. Strain and drink this tea twice daily for a few weeks. Ayurvedic medicines r m2 tone syrup and ashokarishta for 3 months.

Hello. I am 19 years old female suffering from pcos. My doctor gave me diving 10 for 7 days and asked me to wait for 15 days so that my periods will come but they didn't. My pcos was recently discovered and I have no other symptom than missed period for 2 months. Wht could be the possible reason they didbt come even after taking med? Also now he has started me on krimson 35 but I feel very nauseous after taking it and feel like vomiting. Does krimson 35 have any long term side effects? Do women with pcos have no have of pregnancy?

Pcos is not a disease but a body pattern developed because of deranged lifestyle. You are not ovulating that is why you are not having periods. There is no point taking krimson 35 because you will have regular periods till you r on the tabs but once you stop the tab then periods would return back to the same condition. Ideally your treatment is necessary once you get married. Please keep a track on your weight, if weight increases so will the problem be.

Ginger (Adrak) - 6 Reasons Why You Must Eat It!

Ginger (Adrak) - 6 Reasons Why You Must Eat It!

In the realm of Ayurvedic medicine, ginger is considered as a wonder root. Its medicinal purposes are many and it never fails to heal some of the most common to the more serious diseases. Ginger can be consumed raw, with other foods, or in a paste form. It is regularly used in most of the dishes that you consume on a daily basis because of its medicinal values. Here are some of the most important values that ginger has, due to which it is considered to be one of the most cherished remedy in Ayurveda.

  1. Anti-histamine properties: Often people get allergies to dust, pollens, dirt, and other impurities in the air. These allergies can be prolonged and the person suffers a lot. When you experience a bout of allergy, it is best to consume ginger in any form. Its anti -histamine properties help in reducing the allergic reaction and relieve the patient of the sufferings.
  2. Stimulates digestion: Ginger is a regular herb used in every meal - mostly in the form of paste and at times as chopped pieces. This is because it aids the release of bile juices from the gall bladder, which in turn promotes smooth digestion.
  3. Cancer: According to the researches carried out at Michigan University, it has been concluded that ginger powder has the ability to kill many cancer-causing cells. It is specially recommended to be consumed by medical practitioners if you suffer from lung, prostate, ovarian, and breast cancer.
  4. Morning sickness: At times, you experience morning sickness with a heavy head and a bout of nausea. This mostly occurs when you are pregnant. In such circumstances, consuming ginger provides the necessary vitamin B6 to your body. This helps you to stabilise your condition in the morning and reduce weakness, laziness, and nausea.
  5. Inflammation: Ginger root has anti-inflammatory properties, which help in reducing inflammation of any kind in the body. This means that whenever you have any kind of inflammation, you are asked to consume ginger so that the swelling and pain subsides to a considerable amount.
  6. Menstrual cramps: Cramps are very common in women during their menstruation. To reduce the pain and cramps, ginger tea is often given to them. It is said that consuming ginger regularly during periods helps in reducing the pain and cramps that are associated with it.

In a gist, these are some of the essential qualities of ginger. These are the reasons as to why ginger is often consumed daily and seen as a home remedy as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I have a Paragard IUD. My husband and I are sexually active of course. We never use protection because of the IUD and he's also never "preventative" during intercourse. I have been bleeding since a week or two before the 16th of April and ended sometime between the 1st and the 8th of June. I have been nauseous on occasions, dizzy, I have an increased appetite, frequent urination, slightly enlarged breasts, and have spotted once or twice a but haven't anymore. Could I be pregnant? I know, I have the paragard it's "close to impossible" but it's not. I know thousands of women who have become pregnant with paragard. My husband and I also had an incident the 16th of June where his penis was "ripped/stabbed" causing an ER visit. I believe it may have moved maybe due to a pregnancy. I just feel "off" two pregnancy tests have shown negative but i'm not convinced. Could anyone give me any answers or advice as far as should I see my gyno? Its $80 for every visit so I don't want to go unless I necessarily HAVE to.

Hello, if the pregnancy tests have been done 10 days post your menstrual due date then the results are conclusive and you arrant pregnant but with a history that your husband was ripped post intercourse that there may be a chance that paraguard may have been pushed out of uterus or the thread is left too long to cause local cervical abrasions which are possibly bleeding. So you would need an evaluation both per speculum and ultrasonological.

Hormonal changes in women increase senitivity and may also lead to the occurance of gingivitis.

My wife is in her 10th week of pregnancy. We had got tested thyroid 1 month back and result was T3: 1.28 T4: 7.98 TSH: 5.62 Based on Doctor prescription, she was having 100 mcg thyronorm medicine. Again we got it tested 2 days back and TSH is down to 0.60 which I assume good. But still doctor asked to continue with 100 mcg thyronorm for one months. I am little confused why to still continue medicine.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. During pregnancy it is recommended that TSh should be maintained in the following fashion: 1st trimester- 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester 0.2 to 3 mU/L & 3rd trimester - 0.3 to 3 m U/L. So the present level of 0.6 mU/L is well within the required range. This is because she is on thyroxine tablets. If that drug is discontinued, then TSH will go up causing serious problems with growing fetus. So she has to continue taking that till she has delivery. Later it might imrove and then treatment may be looked at the situation then. Thanks.

Normally no chance of pregnancy, avoid unwanted 72, but in future think before you have sexual relations. Also learn basics of sexuality with sexologist if you really value your marital/sexual life.
