Hai. You should have been careful. Disturbing the first pregnancy has very frequently resulted in long term inability to concieve in future. So think many times before going ahead with aborting your first precious child.

अश्वगंधा के फायदे और नुकसान - Ashwagandha Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

अश्वगंधा के फायदे और नुकसान - Ashwagandha Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

अश्वगंधा एक सदाबहार झाड़ी है जो भारत, मध्य पूर्व और अफ्रीका के कुछ हिस्सों में पाई जाती है। इसकी जड़ें और नारंगी-लाल फल का प्रयोग सैकड़ों वर्षों से औषधीय प्रयोजनों के लिए किया गया है। इस जड़ी बूटी को भारतीय जीन्सेंग या विंटर चेरी भी कहा जाता है। अश्वगंधा का अर्थ 'घोड़े की गंध' है, जो इसकी जड़ों की विशिष्ट गंध को दर्शाता है। 
अश्वगंधा एक अनुकूलन है और तनाव से लड़ने में मदद करता है। अश्वगंधा को अक्सर पुनर्योजक के रूप में प्रयोग किया जाता है। यह एक शामक, अनुत्तेजक, मूत्रवर्धक और शारीरिक ऊर्जा और धीरज बढ़ाने के लिए भी इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। भारत में, मस्तिष्क संबंधी विकारों जैसे कि स्मृति हानि के इलाज के लिए अक्सर बुजुर्ग मरीजों को अश्वगंधा का विवरण दिया जाता है। 

अश्वगंधा के फायदे
आधुनिक अध्ययनों से पता चला है कि अश्वगंधा कई उपयोगों के लिए फायदेमंद हो सकता है, जैसे:
1. थायराइड के लिए:
अश्वगंधा जैसे अनुकूली औषधि के बारे में सबसे अविश्वसनीय पहलुओं में से एक यह है कि यह लोगों को हाइपो और हाइपर थाइरोइड दोनों मुद्दों के साथ मदद कर सकता है। यह हाशिमोटोस से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए थाइरोइड की मंदगति का समर्थन करता है, और अतिरक्त थायरॉयड या ग्रेव्स रोग वाले लोगों के स्वास्थ्य में भी सुधार करता है। इसके अलावा यह बहुत से मुक्त कणों की सफाई का प्रचार करके लिपिड पेरोक्सीडेशन को कम कर देता है जिससे सेलुलर क्षति होती है।
2. अधिवृक्क कायाकल्प के लिए:
अश्वगंधा अधिवृक्क कार्य को समर्थन देने में भी प्रभावी है जिससे आपको अधिवृक्क थकान और पुरानी तनाव पर काबू पाने में मदद मिलती है। यदि आपका एड्रनल समाप्त हो जाता है तो वह आपके अन्य हार्मोन को भी बाधित कर सकता है, जिसमें प्रोजेस्टेरोन शामिल है, जो बांझपन पैदा कर सकता है और डी.एच.ई.ए कम हो सकता है - जिससे उम्र बढ़ने की प्रक्रिया तेज हो जाती है। 
मेडिकल अध्ययन से पता चला है कि अश्वगंधा कोर्टिसोल के स्तर में सुधार, इंसुलिन की संवेदनशीलता में सुधार और स्वाभाविक रूप से हार्मोन को संतुलित करता है। 
3. मस्तिष्क के लिए:
हाल ही में किए गए अनुसंधान ने सिद्ध किया है कि अश्वगंधा केवल तनाव से राहत में मदद नहीं करता है, बल्कि यह मस्तिष्क को अवसाद से बचाता है और अल्जाइमर, अवसाद और चिंता के लक्षणों में सुधार करता है। मस्तिष्क के उपचार में अश्वगंधा के प्रभावशाली होने के मुख्य कारणों में से एक यह है कि इसके शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सिडेंट उम्र बढ़ने की प्रक्रिया में वृद्धि लाने वेल मुक्त कणों को नष्ट कर देते हैं।
4. मनोदशा सुधारता है:
चिंता और अवसाद दोनों के उपचार में अश्वगंधा प्रभावी है। अश्वगंधा का प्रमुख लाभ यह है कि बिना-अवसाद और विरोधी-चिंता वाली दवाओं की तुलना में इसे लेकर कोई प्रतिकूल प्रतिक्रिया नहीं होती है, जो भयानक साइड इफेक्ट भी कर सकते हैं।
5. कैंसर के लिए:
कुछ अध्ययनों में यह पाया गया कि अश्वगंधा में शक्तिशाली विरोधी ट्यूमर प्रभाव है। यह भी पाया गया है की इसका रस कैंसर कोशिकाओं के प्रसार को रोकता है - विशेष रूप से स्तन, फेफड़े, पेट, और पेट के कैंसर कोशिकाएँ। ऐसा माना जाता है कि मुख्य रूप से इसकी प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टिंग और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट क्षमता कैंसर कोशिकाओं के विकास को रोकने में मदद करती करती। मौजूदा कैंसर के इलाज में कीमोथेरेपी के अतिरिक्त अश्वगंधा एक बहुत उपयोगी हो सकता है। इसका रस कीमोथेरेपी के दौरान प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली पे दबाव पड़ने से रोकता है। 
अश्वगंधा, कीमोथेरेपी से जुड़ी सबसे बड़ी चिंताओं में से एक- शरीर में सफेद रक्त कोशिकाओं की संख्या में कमी, का सामना करने में सक्षम है।
6. सहनशक्ति और धीरज बढ़ाए:
मस्तिष्क पर इसके सकारात्मक शांतिदायक लेकिन उत्साहजनक प्रभाव और तनाव पैदा करने वाले हार्मोन को कम करने की क्षमता के कारण अश्वगंधा एकाग्रता, प्रेरणा, और सहनशक्ति में सुधार कर सकता है। इसके निचोड़ से ऊर्जा स्तर स्थिर रखने के अलावा मांसपेशियों और जोड़ों में शारीरिक दर्द को कम करने में भी मदद मिलती है।

अश्वगंधा के दुष्प्रभाव
अश्वगंधा के स्वास्थ्य लाभ अनन्त हैं, लेकिन अगर अतिरिक्त या लंबे समय तक उपयोग किया जाता है तो आपके शरीर को नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। 
1. इसे थायरॉयड दवाओं के साथ लेने से अतिरिक्त थायरॉयड हार्मोन पैदा हो सकता है, जो रोगी के लिए समस्या पैदा कर सकता है।
2. गर्भधारण के दौरान अश्वगंधा का उपयोग गर्भपात का कारण बन सकता है। यह भ्रूण को भी नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है इसलिए, गर्भवती या स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाओं को अश्वगंधा लेने से बचना चाहिए।
3. अश्वगंधा का उपयोग करने पर, पेट में जलन सबसे आम साइड इफेक्ट है। तो, यदि आपके पेट मे अल्सर हैं तो इसका उपयोग ना करें।
4. अतिरिक्त खपत पर यह नींद और उनींदापन का कारण हो सकता है।

Symptoms of Neck Cancer in Hindi - गले के कैंसर के लक्षण

Symptoms of Neck Cancer in Hindi - गले के कैंसर के लक्षण

कैंसर एक प्रकार की बीमारी है जिसमें शरीर में असामान्य कोशिकाएं अनियंत्रित रूप से गुणा और विभाजित करती हैं। गले का कैंसर, कैंसर के उन ट्यूमर को संदर्भित करता है, जो आपके गले (कंठनली), वॉइस बॉक्स (गलकोष) या टॉन्सिल में विकसित होते हैं। इन असामान्य कोशिकाएं ट्यूमर नामक घातक वृद्धि के रूप में पेश करती हैं। गले का कैंसर अक्सर उन कोशिकाओं में शुरू होता है, जो कि आपके गले के भीतर अस्तर बनाते हैं। गले का कैंसर उपास्थि (एपिग्लॉटिस) को भी प्रभावित कर सकता है, जो आपके वाइंडपिप के लिए ढक्कन के रूप में कार्य करता है।

गले के कैंसर के प्रकार
गले के कैंसर के कई प्रकार होते हैं। ये दो प्राथमिक प्रकार के गले के कैंसर हैं:

1. स्क्वैमस सेल कार्सिनोमा:
गले के अस्तर वाले फ्लैट कोशिकाओं के गले के कैंसर।

2. एडेनोकार्सिनोमा (ग्रंथिकर्कटता):
ग्रंथियों की कोशिकाओं को प्रभावित करने वाले गले के कैंसर का एक असामान्य प्रकार है। 
इसके अलावा, गले के कैंसर को दो अतिरिक्त प्रकारों में विभाजित किया जा सकता है।

1. ग्रसनी कैंसर:
ग्रसनी कैंसर, जो गर्दन और गले में विकसित होता है। 

  1. नासोफैरनेक्स कैंसर (गले का ऊपरी भाग)
  2. ऑरोफरीनक्स कैंसर (गले के मध्य भाग)
  3. हाइपोफरीन्क्स कैंसर (गले के नीचे का हिस्सा)

2. स्वरयंत्र कैंसर:
यह गले या वॉइस बॉक्स को प्रभावित करता है।

गले के कैंसर के लक्षण
गले के कैंसर के लक्षण भिन्न हो सकते हैं। अपने शुरुआती चरणों में गले के कैंसर का पता लगाना मुश्किल हो सकता है। गले के कैंसर के आम लक्षणों में शामिल हैं:

  1. गले में खराश
  2. कान का दर्द
  3. घरघराहट
  4. लगातार खांसी या खून वाली खांसीl:
  5. गर्दन में सूजन लिम्फ नोड्स
  6. स्वर बैठना
  7. आवाज़ में बदलाव
  8. निगलने में परेशानी

गले के कैंसर के कारण
कुछ जीवनशैली आदतों से गले के कैंसर के विकास का खतरा बढ़ जाता है, जिनमें शामिल हैं:

  1. धूम्रपान
  2. अत्यधिक शराब की खपत
  3. विटामिन ए की कमी
  4. एस्बेस्टोस के संपर्क में
  5. खराब दंत स्वच्छता

गले का कैंसर कुछ प्रकार के मानव पेपिलोमावायरस संक्रमण (एच.पी.वी) के साथ भी जुड़ा हुआ है।

गले के कैंसर का निदान
व्यक्ति के व्यक्तिगत इतिहास (विशेष रूप से संभावित खतरे कारकों की मौजूदगी) और शारीरिक परीक्षा आपके चिकित्सक को गले के कैंसर पर विचार करने के लिए काफी जानकारी प्रदान करते हैं। आपका डॉक्टर आपकी जांच करेगा और आपके सामान्य स्वास्थ्य, धूम्रपान और पीने की आदतों और यौन इतिहास के बारे में पूछेगा। एन्डोस्कोपी नामक एक प्रक्रिया के दौरान आपके गले को करीब से देखने के लिए आपका डॉक्टर एक विशेष प्रकाशित स्कोप (एन्डोस्कोप) का उपयोग कर सकता है। 
यदि इस परीक्षण में असामान्यताओं का पता चलता है, तो आपका डॉक्टर आपके गले से एक ऊतक का नमूना ले सकता है (जिसे बायोप्सी कहा जाता है) और कैंसर के नमूने का परीक्षण करता है। ट्यूमर कैंसर है या नहीं, यह सुनिश्चित करने के लिए बायोप्सी एकमात्र तरीका है। बायोप्सी का प्रकार, ट्यूमर के संदिग्ध प्रकार पर निर्भर करता है।

1. पारंपरिक बायोप्सी: आपका डॉक्टर चीरा लगा कर, ऊतक का नमूना निकालता है, इस प्रकार की बायोप्सी को सामान्य संज्ञाहरण के तहत ऑपरेटिंग कमरे में किया जाता है। इस प्रकार की बायोप्सी को सामान्य संज्ञाहरण के साथ ऑपरेटिंग कमरे में किया जाता है।
2. फाइन नीडल एस्पीरेशन (एफ.एन.ए): आपका डॉक्टर नमूना कोशिकाओं को निकालने के लिए सीधे एक ट्यूमर में एक पतली सुई को सम्मिलित करता है।
3. एंडोस्कोपिक बायोप्सी: आपके डॉक्टर आपके मुँह, नाक या एक चीरा लगा कर, एक पतली, लंबी ट्यूब सम्मिलित करते हैं और एन्डोस्कोप का उपयोग करके एक ऊतक का नमूना निकालते हैं।

गले के कैंसर के स्टेज

एक बार गले के कैंसर का निदान किया जाता है, तो अगला कदम कैंसर की हद या स्टेज निर्धारित करना है। गले के कैंसर के स्टेज को जानने से उचित उपचार विकल्प निर्धारित करने में मदद मिलती है.
चरण 0: ट्यूमर ने आपके गले से परे ऊतक पर आक्रमण नहीं किया है।
चरण 1: ट्यूमर 7 सेंटीमीटर से कम है और आपके गले तक सीमित है।
चरण 2: ट्यूमर 7 सेंटीमीटर से थोड़ा बड़ा है, लेकिन अभी भी आपके गले तक सीमित है।
चरण 3: ट्यूमर बड़े होकर पास के ऊतकों और अंगों में फैल गया है।
स्टेज 4: ट्यूमर आपके लिंफ नोड या दूर के अंगों में फैल गया है।

Abdominal Crunches: ? Lay down flat on the floor. ? Bend the knees with feet on the floor. ? Place your hands by the side of your ears. ? Take a deep breath. ? Crunch up lifting the head and chest a bit. The aim is to try and touch the knees with the forehead. But do not try to do it in the first attempt. Give your body some time. ? Now move down gradually, exhaling the air. Descending movement must be slower than the crunch up movement. Repeat the steps 5 to 10 times

Diabetes: The Disease With a Sweet Name but Bitter Consequences

Diabetes: The Disease With a Sweet Name but Bitter Consequences

Diabetes, frequently alluded to by specialists as diabetes mellitus, it depicts a gathering of metabolic illnesses in which the individual has high level of glucose in the blood (blood sugar), either in light of the fact that the production of insulin is insufficient, or on the grounds that the cells of the body don't react appropriately to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will commonly encounter polyuria (continuous pee), they will turn out to be progressively parched (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).

1. It's the start of the holiday season, which implies heaps of candies, cookies, cakes, and different treats wherever you go. And, numerous individuals with sort 2 diabetes accept that their finding implies they should starve their sweet tooth and say no to these seasonal treats. Yet, is that truly the case?

Joyfully, say experts, the answer is no watchful way to deal with planning your diabetes diet and it implies you don't need to kiss desserts farewell. Yet, to have the capacity to appreciate that pumpkin pie or bit of cake without blame while holding your blood sugar levels in line, you have to know:

  • What you are eating
  • How much you are eating
  • Carbohydrate, sugar, and calorie substance of all that you devour

Impacts: After you eat or drink, your body separates the sugars in your blood and transforms it into glucose. The glucose goes through your bloodstream and gives your body vitality. To fulfill this, your pancreas needs to deliver a hormone called insulin. In a man with (diabetes mellitus), the pancreas either delivers too little insulin or none by any means, or the insulin can't be utilized viably. This permits blood glucose levels to rise while whatever is left of your cells are denied of greatly required vitality. This can prompt a wide assortment of issues influencing about all aspects of your body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate-user, If the condom has not broken and if your vagina has not got in bare contact with your boy friends penis, there is no likelyhood of pregnancy. Taking an I pill will ensure double protection. So donot panic. If you are in regular sexual relationship, suggest using oral contraceptive pills for protection. Hope this helps. Good luck:):)

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

Maida (White Flour) - Is It Really Good for Our Health?

Maida (White Flour) - Is It Really Good for Our Health?

We must have always heard that maida (white flour) and products made from it are very harmful for our health. However, use of maida its products usage is increasing rapidly in our day-to-day life. Sometimes, we are consuming it in form of bread at our home and sometimes, in the market/food joints in form of fast foods.

Known as white poison, white flour is becoming necessity for all of us but it impacts our health drastically. It is very important to understand why it is bad and how much it can harm us so that we can improve our eating habits.

What is missing in maida (white flour: during processing of maida from wheat, endosperm of the wheat is removed from the germ (wheat germ) and the bran (wheat bran), which is very crucial for digestion. As all necessary nutrients are lost during processing of maida, foods made from it utilize nutrients from the body for absorption. As a result, our body gets depleted of vitamins and minerals. Few manufacturers attract customers by labeling their products as enriched flour, which is nothing, but adding 3-4 vitamins at the cost of 10 lost vitamins during processing.

White flour is tasty but not healthy: though foods made from maida like pizza, burger, donuts, bread, samosas, noodles, momos, panipuri, pastas etc are very tempting and tasty however, at the same time, consequences can not be ignored.

White flour regulates glucose/sugar in your body: whenever you consume foods that are made from maida, it releases sugar into your bloodstream quickly. Because of high glycemic index (gi) of maida, it spikes up your sugar levels. To match up with the sugar spike, pancreas has to over work to release insulin in sufficient quantity. If maida consumption is once in a while then pancreas can manage it however, in case of frequent consumption, insulin production will reduce gradually, finally making you diabetic.

As glucose loiters into your blood, it gets attached to proteins, which is called glycation which cause inflammation in the body and leads to many diseases like arthritis, cataract, heart diseases and the list goes on.

Eating maida also raises bad cholesterol (ldl) resulting many health issues like weight gain, high blood pressure, mood swings. Too much consumption of white flour its products leads to weight gain and you will soon progress toward obesity. Also, it keeps you feel hungry and makes you crave for sweets.

White flour is acidic: acidity is another problem. During refining process, all nutrients are removed and it becomes acidic in nature. As per research, diet high in acidic foods (e.g. Pizza, pasta, burger other white flour products) forces the body to pull calcium from bones to keep the things even, which affects bone density. Over-acidity is one of the major causes of chronic inflammation, and a major cause of arthritis and other chronic illnesses.

White flour creates digestive issues: white flour has been called the & glue of the gut. In today's world, so much food is made from white flour: breakfast food, snacks, pasta, bread, cereal and the list just continues. And it all turns to glue in the intestines. It is without fiber, it congests the system, slows down digestion creating a sluggish metabolism, and can often be the cause of weight gain, stress, headaches and migraines.

Follow these alternatives: for better health in longer run, you should completely avoid consuming white flour foods made from it. Instead, you can use some alternatives like for samosa, use wheat flour. For naan, mix one portion of millets (like jowar bajra) flour with wheat flour. Opt bread, noodles, pasta and macaroni made of wheat flour, which are easily available in food stores.

If the lump is red and tender it is most likely breast abscess. Abscess needs to be immediately drained. If they r occurring again and again, means you need to get sugar tested.
