Psyllium Husk (Isabgol) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - ईसबगोल के फायदे और नुकसान

लगभग तीन फुट ऊँचाई वाला पौधा इसबगोल का उपयोग आज की तारीख में लागातार बढ़ता जा रहा है. इसका मुख्य कारण है आज ज्यादातर लोगों को हाजमे की शिकायत है. और पाचन तंत्र की समस्याओं का इससे बेहतर समाधान किया जा सकता है. यदि हम इसबगोल में पाए जाने वाले तत्वों की बात करें तो इसबगोल के बीजों के उपर सफेद भूसी पायी जाती है. इस भूसी में ही प्रचुर मात्रा में म्युसिलेज पाया जाता है. इसके अतिरिक्त इसमें जाईलोज, एरेविनोज रैमन्नोज और गैलेक्टोज आदि भी पाए जाते हैं. वैसे तो इसका कोई साइड इफेक्ट नहीं होता है लेकिन फिर भी इस्तेमाल में सावधानी न बरतने से इसबगोल के कुछ नुकसान हो सकते हैं.

ईसबगोल के सेवन से लाभ
1. जिन लोगों को जोड़ों के दर्द, कब्ज व पाचनतंत्र आदि की शिकायत है उनलोगों को अपनी परेशानियों से निजात पाने के लिए रात के खाने के बाद एक गिलास गर्म दूध के साथ एक चम्मच ईसबगोल की भूसी मिलाकर लेने से निश्चित रूप से लाभ होगा. 
2. यदि आपको दस्त के दौरान रक्तस्राव हो रहा है या लंबे समय से कब्ज से ग्रसित हैं तो ऐसे में आप आधा कप पानी के साथ इसबगोल की भूसी लेने से आराम मिलेगा.
3. आँतों में होने वाली रुकावट और संक्रमण के शिकार लोगों को 20 मिलिलीटर की मात्रा में एक गिलास पानी में मिला लें और इसका एक चम्मच ईसबगोल के बीज साथ में सेवन करें. ऐसा करने से आपको अपनी समस्या से छुटकारा मिलेगा.
4. तमाम लाभकारी गुणों से युक्त इसबगोल इसके अलावा आपको शरीर में पानी की कमी, मोटापा व डायबिटीज आदि में भी आपको भरपूर फायदा देता है. इन रोगों में इसबगोल के इस्तेमाल से आप छुटकारा पा सकते हैं. 
5. मोटापे की समस्या से ग्रसित लोग भी इसबगोल के उपयोग से वजन घटा सकते हैं. इसके लिए आपको दिन में 3 बार खाने से आधा घंटा पहले लेना इसबगोल का सेवन करना चाहिए.
6. यदि आप दमा से पीड़ित हैं तो इसमें भी इसबगोल आपको फायदा पहुंचता है. इसके लिए बस आपको सुबह-शाम दो-दो चम्मच ईसबगोल की भूसी गर्म पानी के साथ लेते रहना होगा. ऐसा करने से आपकी यह शिकायत दूर हो जाएगी.

इसबगोल के नुकसान भी हैं
1. इसबगोल का नुकसान इसकी अधिक मात्रा है. इसबगोल का अधिक मात्रा में सेवन आपको भूख न लगने का कारण बन सकता है. इसलिए इसकी अधिक मात्रा में सेवन करने से बचें.
2. कैप्स्यूल या बारीक पिसा हुआ पाउडर के रूप में इसबगोल का सेवन आपको परेशानी में डाल सकता है. इसलिए इसबगोल के इन रूपों के इस्तेमाल से जितना हो सके बचने का प्रयास करें.
3. इसबगोल का उपयोग कम पानी या अन्य तरल पदार्थों के साथ सेवन छाती में दर्द, सांस लेने में परेशानी, उल्टी या फिर कुछ निगलने में समस्या आदि परेशानियों में हमें फंसा कर उलझा सकता है.
4. इसबगोल 2 साल या इससे कम उम्र के बच्चे को तो बिलकुल ही न दें. इससे ज्यादा उम्र वाले बच्चों को बहुत कम मात्रा में दे सकते हैं. बच्चों को जब भी इसबगोल देना हो तो इसमें या तो किसी विशेषज्ञ से सलाह लें या फिर बहुत कम मात्रा में इस्तेमाल करें. हलांकि डॉक्टर से सलाह लेना ज्यादा उचित रहेगा.
5. हलांकि इसबगोल से एलर्जी की समस्या नहीं के बराबर होती है. लेकिन फिर भी किसी-किसी को खुजली, चहरे पर सुजन या त्वचा पर चकते आदि लक्षण दिखाई पड़ सकते हैं. यदि आपको साइलियम से एलर्जी है तो इसबगोल का सेवन भूलकर भी न करें.
6. इसबगोल का नुकसान गर्भवती महिलाओं को तो और ज्यादा होता है. इसलिए गर्भावस्था के दौरान इसबगोल से उन्हें दूर ही रखना चाहिए. गर्भवती महिलाएं ऐसा करके इसके दुष्प्रभाव से बच सकती हैं.

Sunflower (Surajmukhi) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - सूरजमुखी के फायदे और नुकसान

आज हर जनरल स्टोर और फ़ूड स्टोर्स पर सूरजमुखी अपने फायदेमंद गुणों के साथ आसानी से बीज या तेल के रूप में उपलब्ध है. इसका हम अपने दैनिक जीवन में धड़ल्ले से इस्तेमाल भी करते हैं. लेकिन क्या आप जानते हैं कि हमारे सर से लेकर पाँव तक के लिए सूरजमुखी फायदेमंद है? तो आइए सूरजमुखी के फायदे और नुकसान को समझते हैं.

इन रोगों में फायदेमंद है सूरजमुखी
1. अस्थमा और कैंसर से बचाता है : सूरजमुखी के बीज में विटामिन ई, सेलियम और कॉपर भरपूर मात्रा में होने के कारण इसमें एंटीऑक्सीडेंट गुण पाया जाता है. तमाम शोधों से ये पता चला है कि ये पेट, प्रोस्ट्रेट और ब्रेस्ट कैंसर से हमारी रक्षा करता है. यही नहीं इसके प्रयोग से अस्थमा जैसी बीमारियों के लिए भी सूरजमुखी फायदेमंद है.
2. पेट को दुरुस्त रखता है : इसमें पाए जाने वाले तमाम तत्वों में एक फाइबर भी है. इसमें प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाने वाला फाइबर आपके कब्ज की समस्या को दूर करके आपके पेट को भी दुरुस्त रखता है.
3. जोड़ों के दर्द में राहत : इसका तेल जोड़ों के दर्द की बिमारी यानी गठिया में भी आपको भरपूर लाभ पहुंचाता है. तो इस बिमारी से पीड़ित व्यक्ति इसका उपयोग करके आराम महसूस कर सकता है.

शरीर के विभिन्न अवयवों की देखभाल
1. दिमाग को दुरुस्त रखता है : सूरजमुखी के तमाम फायदों में से एक ये भी है कि इसमें पाया जाने वाला मैग्नीशियम आपके दिमाग की नसों को शांत करके तनाव और माइग्रेन से आपको बचाता है.
2. दिल का भी रखे खयाल : इसके बीज विटामिन सी से भरपूर होने के कारण आपके दिल का भी भरपूर खयाल रखते हैं. इसके साथ ही इसमें पाया जाने वाला विटामिन ई कोलेस्ट्रॉल को खून की धमनियों में जमने से रोकता है. जिससे कि दिल के दौरे या स्ट्रोक का खतरा कम होता है.
3. त्वचा में लाए निखार : इसके तेल में मौजूद फैटी एसिड त्वचा को जीवाणुओं से बचाकर इसे एक्ने होने से रोकता है. इससे त्वचा की नमी बनी रहती है और त्वचा निखरता है. कुछ शोधों से ये भी पता चला है कि एक्जिमा और डर्मेटाइटिस की बीमारी में भी सूरजमुखी तेल लाभदायक है.
4. हड्डियों को मजबूत बनाता है : इसमें प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाने वाला मैग्नीशियम हमारे शरीर की हड्डियों को मजबूती और लचीलापन प्रदान करता है.
5. बालों का करे विकास : इसके बीजों में जिंक तत्व की अधिकता होती है. जिंक आपके बालों को तो बढ़ाता है लेकिन इसकी अधिकता से बाल झड़ने भी लगते हैं इसलिए इसका इस्तेमाल सावधानी से करें. इसमें पाया जाने वाला विटामिन ई आपके सर में ब्लड सर्कुलेशन करके बालों के विकास में मदद करता है.

शरीर के मेंटेनेंस में भी फायदेमंद है सूरजमुखी
1. शरीर का मेंटेनेंस करता है : इसके तेल में पाया जाने वाला प्रोटीन शरीर के निर्माण, मरम्मत, हार्मोन और एंजाइमों के उत्पादन में भी मदद करती है.
2. कोलेस्ट्रॉल कम करता है : इइसके बीज में मोनो और पोलीसैच्युरेटेड फैट्स भी पाए जाते हैं. इन्हें अच्छा फैट माना जाता है और इनकी खासियत ये है कि ये यह खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल को घटाते हैं.

सूरजमुखी के नुकसान भी हैं
1. यदि आप जरूरत से ज्यादा सूरजमुखी का इस्तेमाल करेंगे तो इसमें मौजूद सेलेनियम और फास्फोरस आपको नुकसान पहुंचा सकते हैं. इसके अलावा वजन और कोलेस्ट्राल बढ़ाने के साथ-साथ आपको पेट में गैस व दर्द की भी शिकायत हो सकती है.
2. बाजार में मिलने वाले सूरजमुखी के बीज को लेकर विशेष रूप से सावधान रहना चाहिए. क्योंकि बाजार में मिलने वाले सूरजमुखी के बीज कई बारे काफी पुराने मिल जाते हैं जिससे नुकसान की ज्यादा संभवनाएं बनती हैं.
3. कुछ लोगों को सूरजमुखी परिवार के पौधों से एलर्जी हो सकती है. इसलिए उन्हें सावधान रहना चाहिए.

My weight is increase day by day. I'm scare my self while I stand in front of mirror.

Homeopath, Chennai
My weight is increase day by day. I'm scare my self while I stand in front of mirror.
Diet and lack of exercise are the two most important factors that contribute to obesity. While the modern day diet is becoming more and more full of fats, sweets and empty calories, it is becoming devoid of nutritious vitamins and minerals. The fibre content is also decreasing. One tends to stack up on junk food in an effort to take a quick bite while on the go. At the same time, physical activity is on the decline. One has increased access to vehicles and the need to walk or cycle is almost not present. Even for commuting short distances, one uses cars or two wheelers. All these things are readily contributing to this epidemic of obesity. When it comes to getting rid of the excess fat, one needs to work conscientiously and consistently on both the counts mentioned above. One’s diet has to be altered so as to include more and more natural fruits and vegetables. Processed food and junk food should be cut down to the minimum. A daily exercise regimen needs to be adopted. Exercising for 30-40 minutes for a minimum of 5 days a week is necessary. Homeopathy helps by regulating the metabolic system of the individual. There are more than 100 medicines listed in the Homeopathic literature for obesity. It is a tough job selecting the right medicine for a particular patient. One needs to take into account a lot of things before selecting the right course of treatment. These things relate to other symptoms or conditions that may be present or the person may be suffering from. A lot of importance is given to the reason, if any can be found that stimulated weight gain. This reason could be a particular illness or an event or some psychological setback in life. The general reaction of the person to extremes of temperature, his or heating habits also need to be taken into account. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Hello Doctor, What all tests should I conduct for my Father aged 60 Diabetic to avoid the tiredness and Weaknesses.
H...
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Tiredness, weakness are symptoms suggesting that his diabetes is not well controlled. First thing is to achieve strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. If this is achieved, his general health will definitely improve. Only other to be seen is his hemoglobin to see if he has anemia. Thanks.

How Dangerous Is Betel Nut?

What is betel nut?

Highlights

  1. Betel nut is the seed of a type of palm tree.
  2. It has a long history of being  the being chewed for its mood-enhancing effects in many parts of Asia and the  Pacific.
  3. Modern research shows many health risks associated with its use, including oral cancer, an incurable jaw disorder, and reproductive issues.

A deep red or purple smile is a common sight in many parts of Asia and the Pacific.

 But what’s behind it?This red residue is the telltale sign of the betel nut, which is chewed by millions of people across the globe. In its most basic form, betel nut is a seed of the Areca catechu, a type of palm tree. It’s commonly chewed after being ground up or sliced and wrapped in leaves of the Piper betel vine that have been coated with lime. This is known as a betel quid. Tobacco or flavorful spices may also be added.

History of a habit

Betel nut has a long history in South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Basin. In Guam and other Pacific islands, its use can be traced back as far as 2,000 years. A habit passed down through generations, chewing betel nut is a time-honored custom for 10–20 percent of the world’s population. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 600 million people use some form of betel nut. It is one of the most popular psychoactive substances in the world, in fourth place after nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine. But while betel nut is an important cultural and social tradition in many countries, growing evidence points to serious health effects from regular use.

Oral cancer and other dangers

 A study  reports that betel nut users are at a higher risk for oral submucous fibrosis. This incurable condition can cause stiffness in the mouth and eventually the loss of jaw movement. Regular chewing of betel nut can also cause gum irritation and tooth decay. Teeth may become permanently stained deep red or even black.Betel nut may interact with other drugs or herbal supplements. It could cause toxic reactions in the body or reduce the effects of medications. 

Medical conditions associated with betel nut use with tobacco:

  • oral submucous fibrosis
  •  oral cancer
  •  addiction
  •  reproductive issues, including low birth weight in newborns

10 Health Benefits Of Epsom Salt

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
10 Health Benefits Of Epsom Salt

1. Eases stress

  • Epsom salt can help you calm down when you are feeling stressed. Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases adrenaline levels.
  • Magnesium plays an important role in the release and uptake of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical in the brain. This creates a feeling of well-being and relaxation while also reducing anxiety, irritability, insomnia and abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Add 1 cup of epsom salt to warm bath water.
  • Soak in it for 20 minutes to feel more relaxed and sleep better.
  • Take an epsom salt bath about 3 times a week to enjoy a stress-free life.

2. Aids detoxification

  • Epsom salt can assist in eliminating toxins from the body. The magnesium in epsom salt is required for detoxifying cells. It also helps detox the body of environmental contaminants that can potentially cause ill health.
  • To enjoy a relaxing detox bath, stir in 1 to 2 cups of epson salt in a bathtub filled with warm water and soak in it for 10 to 15 minutes, 2 or 3 times a week.

3. Relieves muscle cramps

  • Epsom salt can help treat muscle cramps and relieve sore muscles after workouts. Magnesium effectively eases pain and reduces inflammation. This in turn promotes muscle relaxation and healing.
  • Make a thick paste of epsom salt and hot water. Apply it on the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes to get soothing comfort.
  • Another option is to soak your body in a tub of warm water with 1 cup of epsom salt for at least 20 minutes.
  • Your muscle cramps will likely heal after one application or bath. If needed, repeat the process the next day.

4. Eases aches & pains

  • Epsom salt can help alleviate symptoms like pain, swelling and inflammation. Magnesium helps regulate the ph levels in the body.
  • This in turn reduces stiffness, inflammation and pain associated with any form of arthritis, including gout. It helps in bone mineralization as well. Plus, epsom salt promotes nerve functionality and soothes nerve pain.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of epsom salt to hot water.
  • Soak the aching body parts in it for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Do this up to 3 times each week.

5. Adds volume to hair

  • Epsom salt is also healthy for your hair. It can add body to your hair, remove excess oil from your scalp and keep your scalp healthy. Plus, it can remove the buildup of hair products on the scalp that cause problems like thinning hair, hair loss and oily hair. Also, the minerals in epsom salt help repair and strengthen damaged hair.
  • To make a volumizing hair mask, mix equal parts of a warm deep conditioner and epsom salt. Apply it on your slightly damp hair. Leave it in for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cold water. Use this hair treatment once a week only.
  • If you have oily hair, add a little bit of epsom salt to your shampoo and wash your hair as usual. Do it 2 times a week only.

6. Exfoliates skin

  • For healthy and smooth skin, it is essential to exfoliate properly once or twice week. This helps get rid of dead skin cells and remove oil from skin pores that can cause itchiness, pimples, blackheads and other common skin problems.
  • You can simply rub a handful of epsom salt over damp skin to remove dead skin cells, then rinse it off with warm water.
  • Another option is to mix a handful of epsom salt with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and rub it all over your wet skin to exfoliate. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Use either of these treatments on a weekly basis to make your skin healthy, smooth and soft.

7. Treats sunburn

  • Epsom salt is very soothing for sunburned skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties alleviate mild sunburn irritation like itchiness and pain. It can even help maintain an even skin tone.
  • To treat sunburned hands and legs, mix 2 tablespoons of epsom salt in 1 cup of water and store it in a spray bottle. Spray it on the affected area. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then take a bath. Do this several times a week to notice improvement.
  • Another option is to fill a bathtub with lukewarm water and mix in 1 cup of epsom salt, stirring thoroughly so the salt crystals dissolve properly. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil and soak in the water for 20 minutes.

8. Alleviates foot problems

  • Be it athlete’s foot, foot odor, dry foot, pain or any other foot problems, epsom salt can be used to treat these issues. Also, its natural exfoliating properties will help soften rough and callused skin on your feet.
  • To get rid of foot odor or relieve symptoms of athlete’s foot, add ½ cup of epsom salt to a foot tub filled with warm water. Soak your feet in it for 10 minutes once daily until the problem is resolved.
  • To treat toenail fungus, soak the affected toes in hot water mixed with a handful of epsom salt 3 times a day until you get rid of the problem.

9. Improves heart health

  • Epsom salt also improves heart health. The magnesium helps maintain a normal heart rhythm and healthy arteries. When the arteries are healthy, there is less risk of blood clots, plaque buildup and damage to arterial walls.
  • Also, epsom salt improves blood circulation, which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease and strokes.
  • Enjoy an epsom salt bath 3 times a week to improve your cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of heart attack.

10. Improves digestion

  • Epsom salt assists in the elimination of harmful toxins and waste products from the body and the digestive system. It also works as a laxative to soften stools, making them easier to pass, and can be used to treat constipation.
  • Dissolve 1 or 2 teaspoons of epsom salt in 1 cup of warm water and drink it on an empty stomach once a day. When taken internally, epsom salt can cause some side effects, including gastrointestinal irritation, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Consult your doctor before taking epsom salt. Do not take it longer than 1 week.
  • Also, soaking in an epsom salt bath helps reduce water retention and tummy bloating.

Health Benefits of Onion

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
Health Benefits of Onion
  • Prevents DiabetesA single serving of onions contains 27% of your biotin DRI. Biotin has many positive impacts on your health, one of which is combating symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes. Early research suggests that a combination of biotin and chromium might help regulate blood sugar and even decrease insulin resistance.
  • Healthy Skin: Biotin is also important in maintaining healthy skin. It is used to treat brittle nails, prevent hair loss (although research is still ongoing as to its effectiveness in this regard) and maintain skin health.
  • Improved Immunity: Onions contain both vitamin C and photochemical that increases the effectiveness of vitamin C in your body. What does that mean? A healthier, more effective immune system, that’s what.
  • Prevents CancerQuercetin is more than just a funny looking word. It’s also a plant flavonoid (another funny word that means plant pigment) that possesses potent antioxidants, which fight against cancer-causing free radicals. Free radicals are chemical compounds that damage cell membranes and cause cell death. Onions are rich in quercetin and thus are a powerful weapon in the war against cancer.
  • Relieves StressQuercetin doesn’t stop there. It also helps protect your body against stress. When you are stressed out your body produces cortical. While cortisol is totally normal, too much of it can damage muscle tissue and cause protein breakdown in the body. That’s where quercetin-rich onions come in. During times of prolonged stress, quercetin suppresses enzyme required for cortisol release. Next time you have a stressful deadline to meet at work, bring along a few raw onions to snack on!
  • Lowers Cholesterol: Raw onion also promotes production of HDL which is the good cholesterol that you need to stay healthy.
  • Anti-Inflammatory: Onions have anti-inflammatory properties help those who suffer from joint pain and arthritis. But the benefits of betalain is not limited to those with swollen joints; all disease is rooted in chronic inflammation, and, therefore, everyone should seek out foods with anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Lowers Blood Pressure: The sulfur in onions acts as a natural blood thinner and it prevents blood platelets from collecting. This is good for lowering blood pressure and preventing risk of heart attack or stroke, because you are more susceptible if blood platelets clog up. And remember quercetin? Of course you do. Well it also helps prevent plaque buildup in arteries which is also good for preventing heart attack and stroke.
  • Digestion: Onions are high in fiber, which is good for maintaining a healthy and regular digestive system. Fiber prevents digestive pain and breaks down food can keep it moving.

Bone Density: Onions bolster bone density for older women. One study found that menopausal women who incorporated onions into their diet had a 20% lower risk of health disease.

Sir/Ma'am, I have already been asked the timing for drinking Green tea. Some doctor says 30 minutes before any meal, and some doctor says 2 hours before any meal.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Sir/Ma'am, I have already been asked the timing for drinking Green tea. Some doctor says 30 minutes before any meal, ...
hi dear empty stomach it may lead to acidity and gastric symptoms The tannins present in the green tea increase the stomach acid which may cause stomach ache, nauseous feeling, or cause constipation. Thus, green tea is not consumed on an empty stomach.. Green tea is mostly safe for adults when consumed in moderation. Green tea extract is also considered to be generally safe for most people when taken orally or while being applied topically on the skin for a short period of time. However, drinking too much green tea, more than 3 cups a day is considered to be unsafe You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance
