घबराहट का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज - Ghabrahat Ka Ayurvedic Ilaj!

घबराहट एक ऐसी समस्या है जिसपर यदि ध्यान नहीं दिया गया तो काफी मुश्किल हो सकती है. लेकिन इसके लिए कुछ असं से उपाय अपनाकर हम काफी राहत महसूस कर सकते हैं. आज व्‍यस्‍त जीवनशैली और आगे बढ़ने की होड़ के कारण लोगों में एंग्जायटी की समस्या तेजी से बढ़ रही है. आइए घबराहट से निपटने के तरीकों के बारे में जानें.

घबराहट के लिए घरेलू उपचार
घबराहट यानि एंग्जायटी एक प्रकार का मानसिक विकार है. इसे मेडिकल भाषा में एंग्जायटी डिस्‍ऑर्डर को नर्वस सिस्टम पर अधिक प्रेशर पड़ना भी कहते हैं. एंग्जायटी से ग्रसित रोगियों की संख्‍या दिन प्रति दिन इजाफा हो रही है, यदि सही समय पर इसका इलाज नहीं होता है तो यह धीरे-धीरे गंभीर रूप ले सकता है. हालांकि, एंग्जायटी अटैक को कंट्रोल करने के लिए दवाईयां, साइकोथैरेपी आदि कई प्रकार के उपचार मौजूद हैं. यहाँ पर ध्यान देने योग्य बात यह है की दवाओं पर निर्भरता एक नशे की लत का रूप ले सकती है. इसलिए इसके उपचार के लिए घरेलु उपाय सबसे बेहतर विकल्प सिद्ध हो सकता है. आइए मन को शांत करने के ऐसे ही कुछ सुरक्षित और प्राकृतिक विकल्‍पों के बारे में जानते हैं.

1. कैमोमाइल चाय
कैमोमाइल चाय में औषधिय और रोगनाशक गुण होते है जिसके कारण इसका उपयोग दवा के रूप में बहुत पहले से किया जा रहा है. इसके एंटी-इफ्लेमेंटरी और शांत रहने वाले गुण एंग्जायटी को काफी हद्द तक कंट्रोल करने में मदद करता हैं और नर्वस सिस्टम को शांत रखने में सहायक होते हैं. इसके अलावा कैमोमाइल में निहित कुछ तत्त्व वैलियम जैसे मादक पदार्थों के तरह मस्तिष्‍क को रिसेप्टर्स करने के लिए बाध्य करती है. कैमोमाइल की चाय बनाने के लिए एक कप पानी में सूखे कैमोमाइल के दो चम्‍मच मिलाकर अच्‍छे से उबाल लें. फिर इसमें शहद की एक चम्‍मच मिला लें. इस गर्म चाय को दिन में तीन बार लें. यह मस्तिष्‍क को शांत रखने के साथ आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को भी बढ़ावा देती है.

2. नींबू बाम
इस जड़ी बूटी का उपयोग स्ट्रेस और एंग्जायटी को कम करने और अनिद्रा को दूर करने के लिए लंबे समय से किया जा रहा है. नींबू बाम आपको चाय, कैप्‍सूल या अन्‍य शांत जड़ी बूटियों के साथ मिक्स कर के मिल सकती है. नींबू बाम से बनी चाय आराम तंत्रिका तंत्र को उत्तेजित करती है.

3. ओमेगा-3 फैटी एसिड
ओमेगा-3 फैटी एसिड घबराहट के लक्षणों को कम करने और शरीर में स्ट्रेस केमिकल के स्‍तर जैसे एड्रेनालाईन और कोर्टिसोल को कम कर मूड को अच्‍छा करने में मदद करता है. फैटी फिश जैसे ट्यूना और सालमन, अखरोट और अलसी के बीज में ओमेगा-3 फैटी एसिड प्रचुर मात्रा में होता है. एक स्टडी के अनुसार, जो लोग फिश ऑयल सप्‍लीमेंट का इस्तेमाल करते है उनके खाने और सोने की आदतों, कोर्टिसोल का स्तर और मानसिक स्‍तर के द्वारा मापने पर घबराहट कम देखने को मिली.

4. जिंको बिलोबा
इस जड़ी-बूटी का सेवन मेमोरी डिसऑर्डर और ऐसी समस्‍याओं के लिए किया जाता है जो मस्तिष्‍क में रक्‍त के प्रवाह को कम कर देती है जैसे मेमोरी लॉस, फोकस की कमी और मूड बदलना. यह जड़ी बूटी पूरी तरह से सुरक्षित है और लंबे समय से इसका उपयोग किया जा रहा है.

5. लैवेंडर
यह लोकप्रिय जड़ी-बूटी अपने शांत प्रभाव के कारण लोकप्रिय है. कई स्टडी के अनुसार यह सिद्ध हुआ है की इसकी खुशबू हृदय गति और ब्लड प्रेशर को कम करने में सहायक होती है और यह भावनात्‍मक एंटी-इंफ्लेमेंटरी के रूप में सहायक है. इसके इस्तेमाल करने से एंग्जायटी कम महसूस होती है जब लैवेंडर के तेल का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. एक और जर्मन अध्‍ययन के अनुसार, विशेष रूप से तैयार लैवेंडर टेबलेट जनरल एंग्जायटी डिसऑर्डर जीएडी) से पीड़ि‍त लोगों में चिंता के लक्षणों को प्रभावी ढंग से कम करने में मदद करती है.

6. कावा
साउथ पैसिफिक एरिया में मिलने वाला औषधीय पौधा कावा बेचैनी से परेशान लोगों के लिए बहुत कारगर सिद्ध हुआ है. इस पौधे का प्रभाव दिमाग और केंद्रीय तंत्रिका तंत्र के अन्य अंगो पर काम करता है. कावा की जड़ का इस्‍तेमाल एंग्जायटी, स्ट्रेस, डिप्रेशन, सिरदर्द, बेचैनी, अनिद्रा और भावनाओं को शांत करने के लिए किया जाता है. अध्ययनों से पता चलता है कि यह घबराहट के लिए एक आशाजनक विकल्प होता है.

7. एल-थिएनाइन या ग्रीन टी
ग्रीन टी एंटीऑक्‍सीडेंट गुणों और स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य लाभों के कारण लोकप्रिय है. एल-थिएनाइन ग्रीन टी में एक एमिनो एसिड है. एल-थिएनाइन हृदय गति और ब्लड प्रेशर को नियंत्रण करने में सहायक है और एंग्जायटी को कम करने में भी आपकी मदद करता है. एक अध्‍ययन के अनुसार, 200 मिलीग्राम एल-थिएनाइन लेने से परीक्षण के दौरान चिंता की आंशका वाले विषय में छात्रों ने बहुत ही शांत और अधिक ध्‍यान केंद्रित कर परीक्षण दिया.

Bladder Prolapse - Know Signs Of It!

Urologist, Hyderabad
Bladder Prolapse - Know Signs Of It!

Bladder prolapse is a condition wherein a woman’s vaginal wall ceases to adequately support the urinary bladder. The front wall of the vagina gives support to the bladder under normal circumstances but when this wall weakens, it allows the bladder to droop and become prolapsed. This can lead to a wide range of medical problems such as urinary difficulties, stress incontinence (leakage of urine while coughing or sneezing), pain and discomfort, etc.

Prolapsed bladders are generally associated with menopause. Also known as cystoceles or fallen bladders, they are categorized into four different types depending on the extent to which the bladder has prolapsed.
Grade 1: This is the mild stage wherein a small portion of the bladder droops into the vagina.
Grade 2: This is the moderate stage in which the bladder droops far enough to reach the opening of the vagina.
Grade 3: This is when the condition becomes severe and the bladder protrudes from the body through the opening of the vagina.
Grade 4: This occurs when the bladder has completely prolapsed. The entire bladder protrudes outside the vagina and is normally associated with other forms of pelvic organ prolapse such as uterine prolapse (the sagging of the uterus from its normal spot) and rectocele (prolapse of the wall between the vagina and the rectum).

What are the causes of prolapsed bladders?

Following are the factors that lead to the condition of prolapsed bladders:

  1. Menopause: The vaginal walls are known to become weak upon the onset of menopause. This occurs because the body inhibits the production of oestrogen, the hormone that renders strength to the muscles of the vagina. As a result, the bladder is no longer supported by the vagina.
  2. Childbirth: The process of childbirth puts a tremendous amount of stress on the vagina and often leads to deterioration of the muscles of the vaginal wall. This in turn leads to the condition of prolapsed bladder.
  3. Straining: Anything that puts strain on the walls of the vagina can lead to this condition. This includes lifting heavy objects, chronic constipation, obesity, excessive coughing and sneezing or any other factor that damages the pelvic floor.

What are the symptoms of a prolapsed bladder?

Symptoms of a prolapsed bladder vary from case to case, depending on the category and extent of the condition. Some of the most commonly experienced symptoms of the condition are as follows:

Tissue sticking out of the vagina (that may be tender and/or bleeding)

  1. Frequent urge to urinate
  2. Urinary incontinence (unwanted leakage of urine)
  3. Pain during urination
  4. Pain during sex
  5. Frequent urinary tract and bladder infections
  6. Pain in the vagina, pelvis, lower abdomen or lower back
  7. Incomplete urination

Kidney Stones - When To Opt For Surgery?

Kidneys stones are a common condition. They are quite different from Gallstones which are formed in the Gall bladder. Gall stones are from bile concentration in the gall bladder. "Silent" Gallstones which are detected on an ultrasound done for another cause, can be left alone.

However, silent kidney stones should never be left alone. These can silently grow to a large size and cause kidney failure without the patient ever experiencing pain. Every patient of stone needs to be evaluated by blood tests, ultrasound and possibly CT-scan. Small stones 5 mm or less may pass out naturally, but should be monitored on Ultrasound to confirm clearance. Larger stones are cleared by a variety of Endoscopic Operations like Ureterorenorenoscopy, PCNL or ESWL. These need 1-2 days hospitalisation and have quick recovery. The stone removed should be analysed for contents so that appropriate preventive measure in diet and medicines can be started as soon as possible.

5 Homeopathic Remedies To Treat Deep Chest Cough!

Come winter or even a slight change of season, and it is easy to catch a cold. With cold, it is quite normal and natural to develop a deep chest cough. However, it is to be noted that chest cough develops due to different reasons. Some are due to chest infections, while others are dry cough. Thus, for these different variations of cough, different homeopathic treatments are administered. Here is a list of some of the common types of treatments for curing deep chest cough-

  1. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is administered to those who have a sore throat, constant irritation in the eyes and fever. When fever is accompanied with cough and cold, it is important to treat all three symptoms, lest it might usher in a more serious disease. Homeopathy is often described as a holistic form of treatment. Through the medicines, the personality of the patient can be determined. For instance, Pulsatilla is administered on those who are soft, gentle, mild and timid and who have a fear of being abandoned and thus cling on to people.

  2. Nux Vomica: Those experiencing high levels of stress and falling prey to cough and cold with a sore throat and sharp pain while swallowing should try a dose of Nux Vomica. This is used to cure cough and cold, which block the nose, especially at night, making it troublesome for the individual to breathe. This might also cause blockage in the ear and sharp pains while trying to swallow food.

  3. Phosphorus: At times, one experiences an extreme bout of cough that is triggered through dry throat and coarse fever. This violent cough can be nerve wrecking at times and a relaxing remedy is preferred by the patient as soon as possible to soothe the irritation.

  4. Bryonia: This is the best medicine to treat dry cough that can be a symptom of a slowly approaching influenza. Such coughs occurs when an individual takes a high intake of cold drinks or due to sudden weather changes. The cough is followed by fever and dryness of the throat. It might also itch to a certain extent.

  5. Natrum Mur: It is the best treatment for a dry cough, which often causes a tingling sensation in the throat. This sensation creates irritation and often leads to sleepless nights for the patient. There is also presence of whitish mucus in such types of cough.

These are some of the most common types of homeopathic treatments for treating deep chest cough. Each cough is different in nature and origin, and hence should be treated differently as per the individual symptoms.

Malocclusion And Oral Health - Know More About It!

Malocclusion refers to the general arrangement of teeth and the manner in which the lower and upper sets of teeth fit. In optimal conditions, the upper set of teeth should fit slightly over the lower set of teeth. Malocclusion is a condition wherein the teeth are improperly aligned. Often, malocclusion tends to be a hereditary condition. The symptoms that indicate the occurrence of malocclusion include:

  1. Abnormal teeth alignment.

  2. Irregular facial appearance.

  3. Discomfort or difficulty during chewing or biting.

  4. Mouth breathing (breathing using the mouth instead of the nose).

Malocclusion and Oral Health-

  1. Malocclusion, also known as bad bite, is capable of affecting your overall oral health. This is because crowded and crooked teeth tend to hinder the proper cleaning of the mouth. This leads to tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss.

  2. Malocclusion has a negative impact on the maintenance of oral health. Studies showed individuals without malocclusion were able to maintain a better oral hygiene in comparison to those with the condition.

  3. The improper alignment of teeth makes it rather difficult for the brush to reach in certain parts of the teeth thereby failing to remove bacteria and germs from particular areas for an extended period of time. This results in bad breath.

  4. It also makes flossing difficult and it creates hindrance in the way of maintaining proper oral hygiene.

  5. The improper adjustment of teeth leads to gum decay owing to the faulty cleaning. It promotes the growth of harmful bacteria that leads to weakening of tooth and gums.

  6. Owing to the misalignment of teeth, chewing becomes difficult. This often goes to hamper and mar the way one speaks as well. Malocclusion also results in wearing off of the tooth enamel. This the teeth to appear yellow due to the inability of the brush to reach every place.

Addiction -How Can Acupuncture Help In Getting Rid Of It?

Addiction -How Can Acupuncture Help In Getting Rid Of It?

Recently the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) published a journal claiming that addiction is a complex disease rather than a voluntary condition. The journal also mentioned that for decades, the approach towards recovery from addiction has been mismanaged.

Addiction is treated as a disease now. Pharmaceutical approach and therapy have been quite popular since the last few decades, but is there a better alternative to treating addiction and helping in recovery?

Alternative treatments for curing addiction have been in works since quite a while. Acupuncture is one such approach that has been found to be very effective when it comes to treating people with addiction and helping them to recover.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves stimulating different sections of the body in order to manipulate the body to harness energy and healing powers. This method includes insertion of long sterilized needles in certain parts of the body. An Acupuncture specialist carefully does it in a painless way. During an acupuncture session, the practitioner may also use other methods like Cupping and Massage.

The main ideology behind Acupuncture is balancing the QI energy that flows through human bodies. To harness and balance this energy, Acupuncture requires stimulation in different sections of the body, like the Cardiovascular system, Endocrine system, Nervous system and Immune system.

How does Acupuncture help in Addiction?

To understand Acupuncture’s role in addiction, it is first important to understand what addiction does to a human body.

Addiction causes a major damage to the Endocrine system; it disrupts the balance of the hormones that are responsible for happiness and wellbeing of a person. This disruption of balance leads the person to go haywire and drop into a pitfall of bad decisions.

Acupuncture helps in restoration of that balance in the body. Multiple studies have shown that Acupuncture helps in restoring the Endocrine system, especially the Dopamine hormone (hormone responsible for happiness).

This involves inserting sterilized needles in the specific spots in the body, which are responsible for Dopamine release. After the Dopamine levels in the body have been elevated, the person suffering from addiction deals better with the withdrawal symptoms.

Is Acupuncture Effective with Addiction?

Acupuncture is used as a treatment for Smoking Cessation. A group of smokers were gathered for a survey. This people in this group were trying different methods like medicines, Nicotine patches and e-cigarettes. The results weren’t very effective at first Then, Acupuncture became a part of this treatment. The survey found out that people who used Acupuncture along with these treatments showed better results than people who only used conventional methods.

Though acupuncture has proven to be very effective when combined with other treatments, it is important to remember that it isn’t a cure for Addiction by itself. Consulting an experienced Acupuncture practitioner who deals with addiction can help a person effectively get out of addiction.

How Can You Have A Painless Normal Delivery?

How Can You Have A Painless Normal Delivery?

One of the most severe forms of pain is the pain that a woman experiences during the process of childbirth. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most severe, it is believed to be 8 to 10. In the earlier days, a number of women would die during childbirth and survival was considered as a second lease of life. This belief has however, changed with the advancements in medical science. The delivery has now become an almost painless procedure.

How it works: The pelvis and the lower limbs receive nerve supply through the nerves coming out of the spinal cord. A strong anesthetic is injected into the lower back to numb the pelvis and down below. This ensures that the mother is comfortable and awake during the whole procedure and is able to see the child being delivered but has reduced pain in the lower half of the body.

What are its benefits?

  1. The mother has a painless delivery and is conscious and able to see the process of delivery.
  2. Significant relief from the painful experience of childbirth. The pain induces secretion of stress hormones in the mother, which adversely affects both the mother and the child.
  3. Blood pressure is better controlled using this procedure.
  4. Additional instruments can be used during the delivery if required without the need for additional anesthesia.
  5. If required, the procedure can be converted to a cesarean section too, by adding an epidural catheter.
  6. The duration of childbirth has been significantly decreased.
  7. Suitable for patients who have preeclampsia and heart disease

It has some disadvantages too

There are minor complications, including:

  1. This can develop after the painless delivery and the onset and intensity vary from one individual to another
  2. Post-procedure headache
  3. Pain at the site of injection
  4. Difficulty during urination
  5. The normal pushing effect by the woman is reduced due to the numbness and so vacuum may be used or delivery may have to be converted to a cesarean one.
  6. In rare cases, there could also be a sudden drop in the blood pressure

Certain indications

In the following cases, the doctor would advise the mother to go for a painless delivery

  1. Medical conditions like preeclampsia, high BP, or other heart conditions
  2. Subsequent births after having had a cesarean section (VBAC – vaginal birth after cesarean)
  3. People who have previously had prolonged or complicated labor, a painless delivery is easy on both the mother and the child

When it should be best avoided

In some cases, like the ones listed below, the painless delivery should be avoided

  1. Women with bleeding disorders.
  2. Women who are on blood thinners like aspirin, heparin, etc.
  3. Women who have had prior low back surgeries
  4. Women with neurological conditions

A detailed discussion with your gynecologist is the best way to identify, if this would work for you.
