Potassium Benefits, Sources , Side Effects In Hindi - पोटेशियम के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

हमारे शरीर के लिए कई खनिज पदार्थों की आवश्यकता होती है. पोटेशियम इन्हीं खनिजों में से एक है. ये एक ऐसा खनिज है जो मानव शरीर के लिए बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है. पोटेशियम हमारे हृदय, गुर्दे तथा अन्य अंगो के सामान्य रूप से काम करने के लिए बहुत ही जरूरी खनिज है. पोटेशियम हमारे ऊतकों, कोशिकाओं, नसों और मांसपेशियों के विकास लिए आवश्यक है. पोटेशियम हमारे शरीर में पोषक तत्वों को कोशिकाओं के अन्दर और बेकार के तत्वों को कोशिकाओं से बाहर ले जाने में सहायता करता है. पोटेशियम हमारे रक्तचाप को सामान्य बनाये रखने और सोडियम के हानिकारक प्रभावों को कम करने में भी मदद करता है. पोटेशियम पाचन सामान्य बनाये रखने और मांसपेशियों के सही काम करने में मदद करता है. इसके अलावा भी पोटेशियम हमारे शरीर में कई महत्वपूर्ण काम करता है. आइए पोटेशियम के स्त्रोत, इससे होने वाले फायदे और पोटेशियम के नुकसान को जानें ताकि इससे जुड़ी सभी महत्वपूर्ण बातों की आपके पास जानकारी हो. इससे आप पहले से सचेत रहेंगे.

पोटेशियम के स्रोत
अन्य खनिज की तरह पोटेशियम भी हमारे शरीर के लिए बहुत आवश्यक तत्वों में से एक है जब भी इसकी कमी हमारे शरीर में होती है, हम रोगों के चपेट में आने लगते हैं. हम इस की कमी आसानी से अपने खान पान की मदद से शरीर में पूरी कर सकते हैं. पोटेशियम के प्राकृतिक और अच्छे स्रोत केले, ऐवाकेडो, बादाम और मूँगफली, संतरा और अंगूर, हरी पत्तेदार सब्जियां, जड़ वाली सब्जियां, गाजर और आलू , शकरकंद, चुकंदर का साग, खजूर, दही, टमाटर, दूध हैं.

पोटेशियम से होने वाले नुकसान
पोटेशियम हमारे शरीर में जितना जरुरी है इसकी अधिकता उतनी ही नुकसानदेह है. अधिकता से नुकसान जिस तरह पोटेशियम हमारे शरीर के लिए बहुत लाभदायक है उसी तरह इस की अधिक मात्रा हमारे शरीर के लिए हानिकरक भी है. इसलिए जरुरी है कि इसके बारे में भी जाना जाए ताकि आगे चलाकर कोई अनावश्यक परेशानी न आए. पोटेशियम की अत्‍यधिक मात्रा हमारे शरीर में स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य संबंधी कई परेशानियों को जन्म दे सकती है. इस की अत्‍यधिक मात्रा से किडनी कमजोर और डैमेज हो सकती है. अत्‍यधिक पोटेशियम को मूत्र के जरिए सही तरीके से हटाया नहीं जा सकता है. इससे लिंग संबंधी परेशानी हो सकती है. पोटेशियम की कमी हमारे शरीर में अनेकों समस्याओं को जन्म देती है. पोटेशियम ह्रदय, दिमाग और मांसपेशियों के काम करने में मदद करता है. इस की कमी से शरीर में हाइपोकैलीमिया होने का खतरा हो जाता है. मांसपेशियों में जकड़न, हृदय से जुड़ी बीमारियां, थकान, तनाव, कब्ज, चक्कर और बेहोशी, बाल झड़ना, बार-बार बाथरूम जाना, पाचन संबंधी समस्याएं, हाई ब्लड प्रेशर, हडि्डयों में दर्द - ये सब शरीर में पोटेशियम की कमी के लक्षण हैं.

Hi, my mother is 54 yo when she had undergone hysterectomy along with bilateral oophorectomy. She had not done estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) after the surgery and it's been one year when she had that surgery. As I have read in many articles it is mentioned that one needs to go for ERT/HT otherwise cardiovascular disease CAD and osteoporosis risk increases. I would like to know if it's recommended to go for ERT and if not can any dietary changes be considered instead. Please help, thanks in advance.

Flatulent colic in the abdomen is likely, and small quantities of stools are passed at every attempt.
  4. PhosphorusPhosphorus is another effective homeopathic medicine, which is prepared from inorganic phosphorous. After undertaking potentization, this drug is used for treating several conditions, which include IBS.

Heart Attack And Cardiac Arrest - Know The Difference!

Heart Attack And Cardiac Arrest - Know The Difference!

A heart attack and Cardiac Arrest may sound like terms that have the same medical meaning. They are not. While a heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, a cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops to beat. You might want to know the causes behind the conditions and the symptoms and signs that one may experience. Read on to know about them.

What is a heart attack and what is a cardiac arrest?
When the flow of blood towards the heart gets blocked, a heart attack occurs. This may be due to a clot in the arteries or plaque buildup on the walls of the arteries. A sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the affected individual's heart malfunctions as well as it stops to beat all of a sudden.

Thus, it is evident that heart attack is actually a circulation problem whereas cardiac arrest is an electrical problem. During a heart attack, blood rich in oxygen is not allowed to reach a particular part of the heart because of a blocked artery. If quick treatment is not done for reopening the blocked artery, then that specific section of the heart which receives nourishment from that artery tends to die.

In cardiac arrest, as the heart stops beating unexpectedly, so organs like brain, lungs, etc. also stop receiving blood. It results in a sudden fall in blood pressure as well as the circulatory system tends to collapse. Usually, the affected individual loses consciousness because the flow of blood to the brain decreases. Death might follow if emergency treatment is not carried out immediately.

Quite like the conditions are different, the symptoms are also different. Here are some of the most common symptoms of both heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest. It will assist you in understanding that both these health issues are different.

Symptoms of a heart attack:
Pressure or pain in abdomen or chest, trouble breathing, sweating, dizziness, chest tightening feeling, pain that spreads to arm or jaw, losing unconsciousness, heart palpitation, etc. are some of the basic signs. According to studies, nearly one-thirds of the heart attack patients do not undergo chest pain during heart attacks.

Particularly women experience atypical symptoms other than the ones that are mentioned above. Few of them include gastric pain, vomiting, nausea, breathing problem without any chest pain, getting unconscious, etc.

Symptoms of Cardiac Arrest:
Collapse, dizziness, trouble in breathing, chest pain, blue discoloration of face, etc. are the most common sudden cardiac arrest's signs. A huge number of people who experience cardiac arrest do not experience any symptoms at all.

Though both heart attack and cardiac arrest are linked to each other some way or the other, yet they are different. However, both the conditions need immediate medical assistance, an absence of which may prove fatal.

7 Steps Can Help You Break Your Bad Habit!

Psychologist, Mumbai
7 Steps Can Help You Break Your Bad Habit!

A bad habit could range from smoking or drinking to knuckle breaking or nail biting. A bad habit is one that causes or is likely to cause you or the others in your life, harm. Here are eight steps that can help you break your bad habit:

  1. Try to understand your habit: The most important thing to break a bad habit is to know it first. In case that some habit is hurting you then you certainly need to let go of it. You initially need to set your mind about bringing an end to that habit. It is also important to understand how this habit of yours is hurting you or the ones around you.
  2. Change your thinking: Even when we get to know we have some unfortunate habit, more often than not we are not prepared to separate it since we have practised that habit since a long time and it is by all accounts intense to break that one. We have to change our reasoning about the habit and take a look at it in negative viewpoints since a thing having negative perspectives will be simpler to quit.
  3. Begin small: In case that you have a negative behaviour pattern since quite a while then go slow to break it down in light of the fact that a bad habit is hard to separate at once. Try not to attempt to do everything at once since you would not have the capacity to do as such.
  4. Make tiny improvements: Try not to make extreme improvements to your habit since it is your habit and it will some way or another takes its time to break. Rather make little improvements with the goal that it will not aggravate you and soon you will encounter a noteworthy change in your behaviour and afterwards you will separate the habit totally on a more lasting basis.
  5. Change your environment: A few habits are built because of the environment we live in. The steady surrounding makes us construct that habit in a manner that it gets stronger day by day. So in case that you understand that some negative behaviour patterns have overtaken your life and are not going down, attempt to change your surroundings.
  6. Keep a check: Simply going ahead to bring an end to any habit will not give you appropriate results. Keeping a survey helps you in checking on how much of your bad habit you have defeated and how far you are from breaking it completely.
  7. Reward yourself: Offer yourself a reward each time you see that you have stopped behaving in a certain way, or practising a certain habit. This goes a long way in motivating the individual to strive towards that end goal of breaking the habit completely.
