Do you know that there are certain substances, which may cause respiratory and skin problems? Substances while at work may lead to the development of allergies when breathed in. Allergies may also occur when the substances are exposed to the skin directly. These substances are known as skin and respiratory sensitizers and are capable of causing damage to the nose, skin, throat and lungs. If you are affected in any way, further exposure to sensitizers may lead to allergic symptoms.
Effects of skin and respiratory sensitizers
The effects on the respiratory system may be experienced in the form of symptoms, such as runny or itchy eyes and nose, which is typical of hay fever. More symptoms may follow which include wheezing, breathlessness, coughing and chest tightness. The symptoms in case of skin include itchy, red, dry and cracked skin with irritation. Severe symptoms like bleeding might follow and the symptoms may spread to the different parts of the body.
When do the symptoms occur?
The symptoms show up on being exposed to the substance. In most cases, sensitization occurs within a few months. The symptoms may be experienced even twelve years after the exposure. The symptoms are more severe during evening and night. There are chances of the symptoms improving during weekends and holidays. Once established, respiratory attacks may occur, triggered by exposure to tobacco smoke, cold water and exercise. Attack on skin commonly occur when exposed to chemicals present in the cleaning products.
Substances causing sensitization
The substances, which cause skin sensitization include isocyanates, wood dust, flour and grain dust, solder flux, glues and resins, laboratory animals glutaraldehyde and chemicals used in hairdressing.
Legal obligations associated with skin and respiratory sensitisers
There are certain legal duties, which an employer should undertake for protecting employees. These include protecting workers and public from risks which are associated with skin and respiratory sensitizers. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Heath Regulations lay out the legal requirements in order to protect workers. In order to comply with it, an employer has to assess the risk of health which may arise from activities at work. The employer also needs to decide the precautions which should be taken to prevent or control any risk. It is also to be ensured that control measures are utilised and maintained well. The workers’ exposure to harmful fumes and substances should be monitored constantly. The workers should also be informed, instructed and trained about the risks associated with their work.
According to homeopathy, when a patient suffers from cold, his body will develop skin complaints at times. It’s a way to get rid of internal affection in respiratory system. People usually misunderstand such cold, as another skin disease. However, neither the cold nor the skin complaint will get cured. The patient will be declining day by day. Similarly, if there are skin diseases, when suppressed, affect internal organs. Skin disease is not a health hazard unless it becomes septic. If you experience any symptoms associated with skin and respiratory sensitizers, it is important for you to visit a homeopath. This would enable timely diagnosis and treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
Do you love to eat up the whole fruit? Or, is it the freshly crushed juice that appeals to you more. Both as you know are healthy options. However, is there really a difference between the nutritional value of the two, if it involves the same fruit?
The answer is a big 'Yes'.
While freshly squeezed fruit juice is a healthy addition to your daily diet, it cannot replace eating whole fruits (or vegetables). In the choice between juicing and eating whole fruits, though juicing has its advantages, the latter offers more nutrition. Here's why.
Advantage: Juicing is convenient
The convenience of gulping down a glass of juice versus eating a whole fruit is one of the biggest advantages of juicing. However, this counts as a convenience only if you aren't making the juice and cleaning the juicer yourself. When you have to make your own juice, it probably would be easier to simply cut and eat the fruit.
Advantage: Juicing makes it easier for the body to absorb nutrients
Juicing is said to make absorbing nutrients easier for people with digestive diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases. This is because the process of juicing removes fibers thus giving the digestive system less work to do. Another advantage is eating a whole fruit fills you up more than drinking a glass of juice. This allows you to take in higher amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes etc. However, this theory has not been proved.
Disadvantage: Juicing removes fiber
Though the removal of fiber makes it easier for the body to digest fruit juice, this loss of fiber is actually a disadvantage for people with a healthy digestive system. Since the digestive system does not have to work on digesting fibers in juice, the body uses fewer calories in the process. Lesser calories burnt imply lesser weight loss. Since juices are digested faster than whole fruits, hunger is satisfied for shorter periods of time leading to an increased appetite.
Disadvantage: Juicing removes flavonoids
Along with a loss of fiber, flavonoids found in the skin and fruit pulp are also lost in the process of juicing. Flavonoids have been linked to longevity and are best known for their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent a number of cardiovascular diseases. In citrus fruits, the whole fruit is said to have five times the flavonoids as a glass of juice made from them.
To fuse the convenience of juice and the healthiness as whole fruit, use a blender instead of a juicer. This way, you don't lose any fruit pulp and can enjoy a tasty glass of juice. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.
Boiling water is considered to be one of the best methods of removing impurities present and making it fit for consumption. We all believe in boiling water before consuming it in any form, whether it is for drinking or to make a cup of tea, soup or any other hot beverage. But have you ever thought about the leftover boiled water? What do you do with it? Do you just throw it away or can you re-boil it and use it for making tea or soups?
Experts are now warning about the dangers of re-boiling water. Here’s why you should try and avoid using re-boiled water. As with all liquids when you keep boiling it the liquid gets more concentrated. Therefore re-boiling the same amount of water can make it more concentrated or increase the amount of dissolved salts in it. The harmful effects of re-boiling water are listed below:
- Nitrates: Nitrate salts dissolved in water are usually not harmful but over boiling or re-boiling the same amount of water can cause the nitrates to become a toxin, nitrosamine which is known to cause diseases such as cancer, leukaemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Arsenic: Re-boiling water can increase the amount of dissolved arsenic in the water. Arsenic in small amounts in water is not harmful and in increased amounts can cause conditions such as cancer, infertility, heart attacks and mental disorder. Prolonged consumption of water with the high amount of arsenic can cause damage to the circulatory system and skin damage.
- Fluoride: The consumption of increased amounts of fluoride dissolved in water can increase your risk of bone disorders such as fractures, tenderness, and pain. In children below 8 years of age excess fluoride can cause damage to teeth and tooth enamel.
- Calcium: Calcium is good for our teeth and bones but re-boiling water increases the dissolved amount of calcium which can cause kidney stones and gall stones.
- Change in water chemistry: Boiling water will get rid or reduce the amount of dissolved gases and volatile compounds in it. This would not only affect the taste but could also increase the concentration of unwanted chemicals and impurities in the water.
Due to the above listed harmful effects of re-boiled water, it is recommended that re-boiled water should not be used to make formula for babies. Studies have also shown that using re-boiled water to make a cup of tea can affect its taste. This is because the amount of oxygen dissolved in the water reduces when you boil it. Filling your vessel or kettle with just the right amount of water as required will not only be beneficial for your health in the long run but would help in preventing and conserving this precious resource. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Hello, my name is Dr Prashant Das from Dr Monga’s Health World and today in our series, ‘Hello Doctor’, we will be talking about Ayurveda and many other things related to Ayurveda. And, I’ll be interacting with Dr Jyoti of Dr Monga Clinic.
Dr Jyoti- Hello, Good morning, I’m Dr Jyoti, so we can start with the questions?
Dr Prashant Das- Thank you, Dr Jyoti. So my first question to you is what exactly is Ayurveda?
Dr Jyoti- Okay, so, everybody has listened the term ‘ayurveda’. So Ayurveda if we split into two words, it’s ‘ayur’ and ‘veda’. ‘Ayur’ means life and ‘veda’ means science. So when we enter the college, the first sloka that we learn or we are taught is ‘Hita hitam sukham dukham ayus tasya hitahitam mana ch tachha yatrokatam Ayurveda sa uchyate’. Iska matlab hai, hitkar ahitkar sukhkar dukhkar ayu hai, aur iske ahit aur hit ke baare mein jo humein gyaan deta hai, usse ayurveda kahan jata hai. So I think you would be able to understand that it is the science in which we learn how to lead a healthy life and how we can get rid of the diseases.
Dr Prashant Das- And my next question to you is why Ayurveda is not the first or primary option for a common man? When he is facing some problem and he goes to a doctor, why Ayurveda is not his first choice?
Dr Jyoti- It’s very unfortunate actually. Ayurveda having its origins from India, people don’t believe that it is their own pathy, they don’t trust it. There are a lot of causes, lot of reasons why this is emerging as it. People are not trusting ayurveda as they are trusting the other pathies. So, first of all, is the ayurvedic doctors, you know they themselves do not have the confidence that they can treat people with ayurveda. They actually practice modern pathy, they do not know that there is hardly anything which they cannot treat with ayurveda. Secondly, you know, is the quacks. Quackery is a very very very big issue, you know. Aap jab jaate hai raste pe tab bahut saare aapko tent lagaye huye nazar aate hai, jispe aap dekhte hai, ‘ayurveda dwara ilaj kijiye’, ek jhole wala baba betha hota hai aur unhone 10-15 jars mein jo hai who aapke ayurvedic oshadhiya rakhi hui hai. Toh, people think that shayad yahi ayurveda hai, sorry, it is not ayurveda. And one very important thing, people think that drinking amla juice every day, drinking aloe vera, going vegetarian, and practising yoga is ayurveda. It is a part of ayurveda, but it is not complete ayurveda. People actually don’t know what wonders this pathy can do.
Dr Prashant Das- Okay, so that leads me to the next question. We have been hearing about Dr Monga Clinic and we have a punch line also, that we practice ‘ethical ayurveda’. What is the difference between a normal ayurveda practice and an ethical Ayurveda practice?
Dr Jyoti- You know, Mr Prashant, at Dr Monga’s Health World, our main motive is to develop faith in our ayurvedic pathy, means our ayurvedic medicine. We are doing our level best so we can make people understand that Ayurveda can do wonders, you know. But when we enter the college, we are taught, sabse pehle aapko kya karna chahiye? Hetu, ‘hetu’ means karan ko dhundiye. So until and unless you have a detailed word with your patient ki why you are having this problem, what is the diet, what is the lifestyle because there are so many so many things that are adding to the present condition of the patient. Thik hai, there are physiological diseases also, but they are getting worsened by your diet and lifestyle. So here at Dr Monga Clinic, we tell the patients to follow a healthy diet and lifestyle, to make changes in the diet and lifestyle, so that they can have the ultimate good health.
Dr Prashant Das- A related question to the answer that you have just given, I would like to ask you how can a patient when he comes to an ayurvedic doctor and he gets prescribed for his disease or an illness, how can he derive the maximum benefits from the goodness of ayurveda?
Dr Jyoti-Very good question, actually. Actually, the best thing that a patient can get after having an ayurvedic treatment is that first of all, he or she should follow the do’s and don’t’s very properly. Finally, when a person comes to an ayurvedic doctor, woh sab jagah ghumke aata hai. The stage is at such a chronic point that you cannot expect wonders. It will take its time. So, first of all, they need to be patient, they need to follow the do’s and don’t’s properly so that they can achieve the best out of the ayurvedic treatment.
Thank you so much doctor and this brings to the first conclusion of the first episode of ‘Hello Doctor’, we’ll see you again, until then, take care and have a healthy life.
Thank you so much.

Pigmentation of the skin is a medical term to refer to the phenomenon of colouring. Our skin is made up of cells that produce a pigment known as melanin. The colour of the skin largely depends upon the production of melanin. If more melanin is produced, the skin looks darker and vice-versa. When the melanin producing cells are damaged due to long exposure to sunlight, pregnancy or any other disease, pigmentation of the skin takes place. When the skin gets darker, it is called hyperpigmentation and when the discolouration of the skin takes place or white patches are formed on the skin, it is called hypopigmentation.
Skin pigmentation can be tackled by certain home based remedies. Here are some of these remedies:
- Milk and honey face pack: Milk is known to contain lactic acid. A mixture of milk and honey peels off the affected part of the skin. This makes the hyper-pigmented skin lighter in colour.
- Vegetable juices: Some vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber and potato are effective in getting rid of the skin pigments. Cut slices of these vegetables and rub them over the affected parts. The juices from these vegetables lighten the pigmented part.
- Avocado magic: It is advisable to peel off an avocado and apply its juice with honey over the affected area.
- Add Vitamin E to your diet: Include foods rich in vitamin E in your meals. It helps in restoring the pigmented skin back to its normal form.
- Face Mask: There are several face masks available that can work wonder in curing pigmentation of the skin. You can use face packs containing oatmeal, honey, sandalwood, turmeric powder, raw milk, and orange powder.
- Sun screen: It is important to guard your skin from the ultraviolet rays. UV rays lead to pigmentation of the skin. So, apply a sunscreen lotion or cream before stepping out of your home.
- Take up some exercise: A key to a healthy skin is a good lifestyle. One must exercise regularly to maintain proper blood circulation throughout the body. Proper flow of blood keeps the skin healthy and free from pigmentation.
- Avoid consumption of alcohol and cigarettes: The consumption of alcohol and cigarettes leads to generation of toxins in our blood stream. This is harmful for our skin.
- Cocoa butter: It has nourishing and de-tanning effects on the skin. Use a cream that contains cocoa butter extracts on daily basis.
- Oil massage: Certain oils like olive and almond are good for treating damaged skin.
Below given are some of the common products used in medical treatment of hyperpigmentation:
- IPL (Photofacial) - Treatment with intense pulsed light, or a Photofacial, is frequently recommended by doctors to treat hyperpigmentation.
- Chemical peel - A TCA peel or deeper phenol peel are also used to treat hyperpigmentation.
- Laser Peel - A variety of laser resurfacing treatments may be performed to reduce hyperpigmentation. CO2 lasers and fractional lasers are popular choices for skin resurfacing.
- Topical skin lightening products - Products containing skin lightening ingredients, such as hydroquinone, retinoids, kojic acid, and Vitamin C are often used to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Medical treatment is combined with procedures to get faster results.
