How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

In the olden days, we had food scarcity and too much physical work. So obesity and lifestyle diseases were less among people. In those times people used to eat heavily when more food was available and eat less when no food was available. 

Then came the agricultural revolution era and a smart public distribution system. Food become abundant. It became impossible to change our centuries' old habit and we started eating more.

Then came industrial, it developments and opening up of markets. It created the following things:

Less physical work. Too much mental strain. Odd working hours. Availability of cheap tasty junk foods.

All these started leading to lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension and diabetes. 

Then came the medical era (the current period), when the incidences of the above said diseases started growing out of proportions. Nowadays we have started realizing that 

We are over eating. We are eating junk calories, food with high fat and salt content. We are leading a sedentary lifestyle.

We have started seeing our parents, relatives, friends getting these diseases, and we have come to know that there is no escape, since they too lead a similar lifestyle. This is the awareness era. Now availability of resources like internet and health magazines are changing people's mind to lead a healthy and fit life.

How to lead a healthy lifestyle and avoid lifestyle diseases?

Stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to once a week (two drinks only, it is better if avoid alcohol. Control your existing illnesses like diabetes and hypertension by dedicated dieting and regular consultation with your physician.
Physical activity: 40 minutes a day, minimum 5 days a week. Stop junk foods completely, reduce sugar, salt and oil consumption.
Sleep well (5-8 hours). Everybody has a different biological clock. A refreshing night's sleep varies from person to person. For some 5 hours is enough, for some they need 8 hours. Find out which person you are and start sleeping for the correct time.

Dear Tripti, I can understand. Missed or late periods happen for many reasons other than pregnancy. Common causes can range from hormonal imbalances to serious medical conditions. There are also two times in a woman's life when it's totally normal for her period to be irregular: when it first begins, and when menopause starts. Your reasons could be the fibroid or the chicken pox. Nothing to worry. Take care.

3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), T.T.C.M Yoga
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

Your stomach is lined with a mucosal membrane known as the mucosa and due to a variety of factors, it may become inflamed. This inflammation may cause a lot of problems and complications which are grouped under gastritis.
Symptoms of gastritis

  1. Upper abdominal pain
  2. Hiccups
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Nausea
  5. Heartburn
  6. Constipation
  7. Reduction of appetite
  8. Blood in the stool amongst the others

Gastritis can be quite debilitating and limiting for the people affected by it.

The Ayurveda approach
Ayurveda is a holistic form of medicine which takes into account many factors rather than just the physical disposition and symptoms that strives to cure the patients of the illness in a well-rounded manner. To this effect, Ayurveda helps you treat this problem with multiple angles of attack such as herbal medications and special cleansing therapies among many others. Let’s take a look at some of the methods usually employed in various combinations among the patients.

  1. Changes in diet: Consuming any diet which has a lot of spicy and rich foods over prolonged periods may result in gastritis and other problems. If you already have gastritis, then certain other types of food also need to be excluded such as tea, coffee, sour foods, chilies and buffalo milk among others. These food groups are excluded as they may increase the acidity of the stomach which may cause an escalation of the problems. Some of the foods that may help with gastritis are grapes, pumpkins, bitter gourd, pomegranate, melons and cucumber, etc.
  2. Natural remedies: Some natural remedies that can be very effective in dealing with the symptoms of gastritis are mentioned below
    • Ajwain and rock salt have been an age old remedy in treating multiple gastrointestinal disorders and can be effective in this case as well.
    • Lemon juice is also very effective in treating symptoms or gastritis and also reducing inflammation.
    • Take amla, ginger, and licorice either in a raw form or as a dried option or mixed with other things such as milk or honey. These help in regulating and reducing the acidity within the stomach.
  3. Ayurvedic medications: There are many specialized Ayurvedic medications which can be used to treat gastritis such as:
    • Amalaki choorna
    • Avipattikara choorna
    • Sootashekhara rasa
    • Sukumara Ghrita
    • Dhatri Lauha

However, you should consult a specialist Ayurveda doctor as they can prescribe the correct medications for you after studying your specific symptoms.

Vaginal Infection Treatment in hindi - योनि में संक्रमण का इलाज

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Vaginal Infection Treatment in hindi - योनि में संक्रमण का इलाज

राह चलते कोई महिला अपने गुप्तांगो की तरफ अगर हाथ फिराए तो इस सिचुएशन पर उसे खुद और देखने वालों दोनों को ही ऑकवर्ड फील होने लगता है। और अगर ऐसा ना भी महसूस हो तो भी जरा सोचिए कि आप कहीं किसी काम में लगे हैं मॉर्केट, मीटिंग, ऑफिस, परिवार के साथ, डेट पर कहीं भी और बीच-बीच में आपके गुप्तांगो में भयानक इचिंग हो रही है। आप कहीं भी चैंन से बैठ नही पाते। इचिंग की वजह से जलन और झुंझलाहट दोनों अपनी हद्द पर कर चुके होते हैं। और समय के साथ कोई उपचार न करने पर ये तकलीफ बढ़ती ही जाएगी। इसी तकलीफ को हम वजाइनल इंफेक्शन यानि योनि संक्रमण के नाम से जानते हैं। और यह संक्रमण कभी भी किसी को भी हो सकता है। 

योनि संक्रमण कोई गंभीर बीमारी नहीं है लेकिन यह महिलाओं को काफी परेशान अवश्य करता है। इस्ट औऱ फंगस हमारे वेजिना में स्वाभाविक रूप से मौजूद होता हैं, लेकिन जब इनकी असामान्य रूप से संख्या में वृद्धि होने लगती है तो यह वेजिना में संक्रमण के कारण बनते हैंइस फंगस का नाम कैन्डिडा अल्बाईकंस होता है जो योनि में संक्रमण उत्पन्न कर सकता है। एक स्वस्थ योनि में बैक्टीरिया ज़्यादा होते हैं और खमीर की कोशिकाएं कम और यह बैक्टीरिया जिसे लैक्टोबैसिलस एसिडोफिलस कहते हैं खमीर की मात्रा को कम करता है। कभी कभी एंटीबायोटिक्स लेने से भी इन जीवाणुओं में वृद्धि होती है और संक्रमण की प्रक्रिया शुरू हो जाती है। अन्य कारण जिनसे ये संक्रमण फैलता है वे हैं गर्भावस्था के दौरान एस्ट्रोजन का स्तर, हॉर्मोन बदलने की पद्दति, डायबिटीज या एड्स।

योनि संक्रमण के लक्षण 

  • योनि में खुजली या सूजन
  • पेशाब या सेक्स केरने के दौरान दर्द और जलन होना 

एक सर्वे के मुताबिक लगभग 90% महिलाएं योनि संक्रमण की समस्या से जूझती हैं। जिसके लिए हमारी लाइफस्टाइल, खाना-पान, पहनावा और लापरवाही जिम्मेदार हैं। ऐसा नहीं की ये तकलीफ जानलेवा है या पर जिसे हो जाए उसका पूरा समय हर्रास्मेंट वाली फीलिंग से गुजरना पड़ता है। अब समस्या है तो जरूरी है इससे राहत पाने के या इससे बचने के नुस्खे अपनाए जाए तो चलिए आज हम जानते हैं योनि संक्रमण से बचने के कुछ अचूक नुस्खे। 

1. रेगुलर पेड चेंज करें
सैनिटरी नैपकिन या टैम्पोन को ज्यादा देर तक लगाए रखने से आपकी वेजिना में नमी होने लगती हैं। जिसके कारण आपको संक्रमण की समस्या हो सकती हैं। इसलिए पीरियड्स के दौरान हर 4-5 घण्टे के भीतर ही सैनिटरी नैपकिन या टैम्पोन को बदलती रहें।

2. सुगंधित वजाइनल प्रोडक्ट्स यूज़ करने से बचें
सुगंधित सैनिटरी नैपकिन और टैम्पोन का इस्तेमाल करना तुरन्त बंद कर दें। क्योकि इनकी खुशबू से वजाइना में जीवाणुओं का एक असंतुलन बन सकता है और इसी से वेजिना में संक्रमण का खतरा बनने लगता है। और इसी कारण डॉक्टर भी खुशबूदार सैनिटरी नैपकिन या टैम्पोन का यूज करने से रोकते हैं।

3. रोजना खाएं दही
दही एक ऐसा आहार है जो स्वस्थ बैक्टीरिया से भरा हुआ होता है और इस कारण यह आपके वजाइना को संक्रमण से भी सुरक्षित रखता है। अच्छे बैक्टीरिया वेजिना मे होने वाले संक्रमण को रोकने में मदद करते है तो अच्छा होगा की आप प्रतिदिन एक कप दही का जरुर खाएं इससे स्वास्थ भी अच्छा बना रहेगा और योनि में भी किसी भी तरह की समस्या नही होगी।

4. गर्म पानी से ना नहाएं
वजाइना में इन्फेक्शन की समस्या ज्यादा नम और गर्म स्थिति में भी होती हैं। अगर आपकी वेजिना के क्षेत्र में गर्मी बनी रहेगी तो आपको संक्रमण की समस्या हो सकती है। अगर आप चाहती है कि आपको इस तरह की समस्या ना हो तो ठंडे पानी से ही स्नान करें, तथा अगर आप गर्म पानी का इस्तेमाल करती भी है तो उसके बाद हमेशा ढीले कपड़े ही पहने।

5. तनाव मुक्त रहें
किसी भी बीमारी या संक्रमण के बढने की सबसे अहम वजह है तनाव में रहना। इसलिए तनाव से बचने की कोशिश करें।शरीर को पूरा आराम नहीं मिलता है, तो शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली कमजोर हो जाती है, जिसके कारण आपका स्वास्थ खराब हो जाता हैं। इसलिए अपने शरीर को आराम दें रोजाना कम से कम 7-8 घंटे की नींद जरूर लें।

6. जरूरत से ज्यादा न करें वजाइना की सफाई
वैसे तो संक्रमण को रोकने के लिए वजाइना को क्लीन और हेल्दी रखना बहुत जरुरी होता है। पर वजाइना को रफ़ साबुन से न साफ करें। क्योकि वजाइना काफी सेंसिटिव होता है इसलिए अपने वजाइना ले सॉफ्टनेस क्व अनुसार ही सॉफ्ट साबुन या इसके लिए स्पेसिफिक एंटी बैक्टीरिया लिक्विड वाश का इस्तेमाल करें। 

7. एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं से परहेज करें
अक्सर लोग बैक्टीरिया को खत्म करन के लिए एंटीबायोटिक्स का यूज़ करते हैं। पर एंटीबायोटिक्स का ज्यादा इस्तेमाल शरीर में मौजूद अच्छे बैक्टीरिया खत्म को खत्म कर देता हैं। इसलिए जितना हो सके उतना एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं के सेवन से कम इस्तेमाल करें। हमेशा डॉक्टर की सलाह लेकर ही यूज़ करें।

8. कॉटन पैंटी ही पहनें 
सूती पैंटी की यह खासियत होती हैं कि यह वजाइना में होने वाली नमी को ऑब्जर्व कर लेता है इतना ही नहीं इससे वजाइनल एरिया तक पर्याप्त मात्रा में हवा भी पहुंचती हैं। जबकि लाइक्रा या नायलॉन की अंडरवियर को पहनने से पसीना आता है और किण्व का प्रजनन होने लगता है जिससे वजाइना में संक्रमण होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। इसलिए हमेशा सूती पैंटी ही पहनें। और हो सके तो अपने सभी कपड़े कॉटन ही रखें इससे आप तो कंफेर्टबले रहेंगे ही साथ ही वजाइनल इंफेक्शन से भी बचे रहेंगे।

9. हेल्दी डाइट लें

  • जब हमारे शरीर में जरूरी पोषक तत्वों की कमी होती है तो हमारा शरीर कीटाणुओं और एंटीबॉडी से हमारी रक्षा करने में सक्षम नहीं हो पाता हैं। इसलिए डाइट में पोषक तत्वों को शामिल करें। 
  • इंस्टेंट आराम पाने के लिए कपूर और नारियल तेल लगाए आराम मिलेगा।
  • पर ध्यान रहे की अगर इन नुस्खों को अपनाने के बाद भी आराम नहीं मिले तो डॉक्टर से सम्पर्क करें।

What Is Skin Pigmentation? Ways to Get Rid of It

MD, D.V.D, MBBS
Dermatologist, Mumbai
What Is Skin Pigmentation? Ways to Get Rid of It

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Avocado magic: It is advisable to peel off an avocado and apply its juice with honey over the affected area.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Cocoa butter: It has nourishing and de-tanning effects on the skin. Use a cream that contains cocoa butter extracts on daily basis.
  10. 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:

  1. IPL (Photofacial) - Treatment with intense pulsed light, or a Photofacial, is frequently recommended by doctors to treat hyperpigmentation.
  2. Chemical peel - A TCA peel or deeper phenol peel are also used to treat hyperpigmentation.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

How Often Should You Eat In A Day?

PG Dip Diet, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Kolkata
How Often Should You Eat In A Day?

How many meals should you really have in a day?

With the advancement in nutritional science, researchers have realised that lesser gap between meals means lesser-stored fat which in turn also helps to control blood sugar, boost metabolism and aids in weight management. After three hours of a meal our blood sugar starts falling and after four hours the digestion is complete. After 5 hours we are ready to gobble up whatever comes in our way as the body is looking for a way to refuel. This may lead to consuming high-calorie food.

Eating at regular intervals can save you from binging, keep your blood sugar level stable and help you stay energised. Also, digestion itself is work for the body and the activity leads to burning calories. However, one needs to be careful and not consume very high-calorie meals as that would increase the risk of chronic diseases.

Since everybody is different, there cannot be a set number of meals prescribed for everyone. It depends on when a person feels hungry and how that person would like to deal with it. But you need to understand your body's need for replenishment and provide the nourishment it requires. Hence, according to your body's requirement you should have small meals at short intervals which could range from six to eight in a day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Dear user. In olden days it was almost 6 months. But in present medical advanced conditions, you can have penetrative sex after around 4 months of delivery. You should consider your wife's condition. On delivery she had a large wound inside her uterus and it takes time to heal. Give rest to her and give support. Take care.

8 Do’s and Don’ts of Meditation for Beginners

8 Do’s and don’ts of meditation for beginners

While meditation can improve your overall well being considerably, it can take some time for you to master this art, especially if you're a beginner. Follow these simple do’s and don’ts, even if you’re a novice, you can be well on your way to finding inner peace, happiness, focus and the holistic health benefits that come with the daily practice of this art (and science).

The Don’ts of Meditation

1. Don’t do it with too many expectations
It can do more harm than good if you go into meditation with a baggage of expectations. You need to go into it with an open mind, while letting go of all your hopes, goals and expectations. Most importantly, to experience inner peace and stillness, you have to persevere, even if the results do not match your expectations.

2. Don’t worry about interruptions
Meditation is all about letting go and learning to go with the flow. So, don’t get flustered if you experience interruptions and have to get back to your meditative mindset several times.

3. Don’t look upon meditation as a quick-fix for your problems
Considered to be an effective treatment for stress and worries, meditation should not be taken up with the thinking that your problems would be resolved in no time. The effects of meditation may not show up for months to come. Patience is the key when it comes to meditation.

The Do’s of Meditation

4. Do meditate in a quiet spot
Whether you’re doing it alone, at home or in a group, it is always good to meditate in a place where you will not be distracted by your surroundings. Your meditation can break even at the slightest noise, so pick the quietest spot possible.


5. Do meditate in a group
For a beginner, meditating alone can be difficult and discouraging. You require a great deal of mental effort and determination to just sit still and not do anything. So, it’s good to go at it with the help of others who have been practicing it for sometime as their struggles and experiences may teach you a lot.

6. Do take the help of technology to improve your meditation
Apart from books, even technological tools like podcasts and apps can aid in improving your meditation knowledge and skills. While podcasts on meditation can be downloaded and viewed anytime, anywhere; apps can be used to time your meditation or even to divert any calls or messages that you may receive while you’re meditating, thus, preventing any form of distraction.

7. Do experiment and vary your practice
In order to stave off boredom that might arise from pursuing just one kind of meditation style, you could vary your practice with a myriad of meditation styles, ranging from a body targeted meditation to a breath focused one.

8. Always opt for the sitting position
It’s extremely important to get your body to differentiate between sleep and meditation. The body of a beginner can easily mistake meditation for sleep. For this reason, it is best to be always in a seated position when meditating. You could use blankets or pillows to increase your comfort level.

You should do a pregnancy test. Take the urine pregnancy test or do a more conclusive serum beta hcg test to be sure you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant, kindly get an ultrasound done to rule out any tubal pregnancy.
