Tips On How To Stay Healthy If You Work Night Shifts!

Night shift workers are more likely to suffer from insomnia, fatigue, accidents, ulcers, and even certain types of cancer than those who work during the day. People also frequently gain weight when they work the night shift. Although it’s clearly not ideal, many people have no choice but to work nights. So, here are some tips on how to keep shift work from sabotaging your nutrition or your health.

5 nutrition tips for shift workers:

  • Eat more protein, fewer carbs during your shift. 
  • Avoid sugar and sweetened beverages.
  • Don’t use food as entertainment. 
  • Stock up on healthy foods. 
  • Have healthy foods readily available both at home and at work. 
  • Preparation is key. 
  • Stop unhealthy snacking. 
  • Stick to a schedule. 
  • Cut down the caffeine. 
  • Exercise when you can.

The benefits to your health and well-being will be well worth the extra time and effort.

No, 2nd delivery can be normal unless there was anatomical reason in the pelvic bone which does not seem to be the case. Reason for operation this time was mouth of uterus not opening + less amniotic. The doctor will have to monitor her all through 1st stage of labor from starting labor pains till delivery to avoid risk of stitches getting broken (very rare these days) or distrss to baby. But it will take up to 12 hours like for 1st normal delivery. Do give a gap of at least 1 year for 2nd child. More is the gap, more are chances of a normal delivery. Average rate of operative delivery is only 10% but with previous operative delivery the chances are reduced to 50%, still it is worth giving a try.

You are only 20 years old and should not be very desperate. Need to see a fertility specialist who will give you the plan. In the mean time you should be on a low carb and high protein diet and walk for 30-40 min everyday.

Tips for Weight loss in Busy Life

Hello, everybody, I am Dr Puneet Nayak, CMD Prettislim Clinic. Today I will be talking about how to remain fit and healthy in today’s busy life. All of us want to remain fit and healthy, but we always complain we are short of time. I believe that more than shortness of time. It is the lack of motivation or the lack of action which makes us to not achieve our fitness goals. So first thing is that focus, that orientation, that yes, fitness is important, like other aspects of life like career, family life, social life, entertainment, fitness is also something important which needs to be given time, effort, energy and focus. Once you develop this orientation, then the next step will automatically come in. Next step is, finding good professionals. Like every other field of this world, fitness is a specialized field. You need good professionals or good centres where you can have specialized professionals like dieticians, physicians, fitness trainers, yoga trainers to help you achieve your fitness goals.

At Prettislim, we are eleven year old clinic with a team of 50 doctors, 25 dieticians, 20 counsellors and 6 physicians in our team. We help you achieve your fitness and slimming goals, through the use of human involvement as well as the use of latest technology, as well as the use of technology to give you reminders and support you during the program. So after finding a good professional place and centre, it is also very important to take charge of your fitness, because until you take charge then your goals will not be achieved. And it is also important to know that fitness is not an all-or-none phenomenon, it is not that either you have a big pot belly, or you have a six pack. You can always be somewhere in the middle.

So if you’re better than what you were yesterday, a week back, or a month back, you are in the right direction. So keep up the momentum. If you make unreasonable goals, then you’re bound to fail, and which will reduce your motivation and you will go haywire. So if you are better than what you were yesterday, a week back, or a month back, keep your bag packed and move ahead. You are in the right direction. Also, it is very important to keep a variety of fitness regimen. Sometimes you’re doing walking, jogging, treadmill, sometimes some games, this will keep you pep up, you will not get bored, otherwise, if you get bored you drop, everything and become lethargic. Keep a variety.

Also, it is important that use some good fitness nutritional supplements, like protein, fibre, calcium, vitamin, as they are very important to help you achieve your fitness goals. So be regular, don’t hesitate, it is going to help you. Apart from this, it’s also very important that sometimes it might happen that you may lose focus and you may go haywire. But don’t worry. Find a good occasion to remotivate yourself. It can be your birthday, a new year, a friend’s marriage, or it can be even your upcoming holiday. Use it as a motivation tool, and get your ball rolling again. In no time, you will be able to achieve your fitness goals again. Also, be attentive towards your fitness regimen. Read more, listen more, watch more about your fitness, because fitness is an ever-changing field.

Like in Prettislim we introduced four-in-one technology 4 years back. Where we use four technologies in one treatment of 60 minutes to help you lose your unwanted body fat. So you only need 60 minutes a week, which can definitely fit into your busy schedule. Over and above, you get dietician support through slimming tips as well as SMS, Whatsapp, and e-mail.

So what are you waiting for? If you don’t have time, still you can become fit and healthy by just giving 60 minutes a week. I am sure the tools which I have suggested you in my video would help you to achieve your fitness goals even if you’re busy. For more information, you can always connect me through Lybrate.com, or know more about us at www.prettislim.com.

Thank you very much.

Hi. .I had an surgical abortion on 25th of July. My bleeding hvnt been stopped. On 1st of Sept. .I had a checkup with d doctor n she said. She doesn't find any reason 4 bleeding. It may b because of breastfeeding my child which is of 1 and half yr. and she recommended DEVIRY 10 mg tablet to continue 4 20 30 days. But there is no control over d periods by dis tablet .I'm really worried. .wt shall I do.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Deviry is progesterone hormone and is passed on to baby through milk. stay away from this tablet but be prepared for bleeding on rebound for few days. take no medicine except vitamin D and Calcium & vitamin C to strengthen the blood vessels. Get an OPD procedure of MR( menstrual regulation done under local anesthesia) it is a bit more than check up,takes 2 minutes but is curative . eat high protein diet. avoid post delivery diet like dates, jeera,ajwain,heeng,til.. Do not exert. abstinence to avoid infection.

Harmful Effects of Irregular Periods on Your Health!

Harmful Effects of Irregular Periods on Your Health!

The menstrual cycle is a natural part of a woman’s life. Most of the times, it has been seen that women have periods that have a standard or perfect timing. However, some women may have extremely unpredictable or irregular periods. There are numerous reasons that can cause these irregular periods. In such cases, there are some that are more serious than the others.

At the point when a woman stops getting her period, it is called amenorrhea. It is a strong sign that something is not right. Primary amenorrhea is the point at which a teenager never got her period in the first place during adolescence. Secondary amenorrhea on the other hand, is when a woman has had her period in the past, yet stops getting her monthly period for at least three months.

Irregular periods, missed periods, or exceptionally painful and serious PMS (post menstrual syndrome) symptoms are an indication that the levels of one or more hormones are either missing or are too high. Whether it is a basic health condition, constant stress levels, a bad eating routine, an excess of exercise or less body weight, frequently missed periods is not something that should be ignored, especially when you are sure that you are not pregnant.

  1. In case your irregular periods are consistent, you need to be assessed for PCOS. PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome influences up to 10 percent of the women who are in their conceiving age. Apart from causing infertility, PCOS can expand the danger of diabetes and many heart diseases.
  2. You need to likewise be screened for thyroid problems and other diseases and conditions that might be connected to irregular periods. For example, an overactive or an underactive thyroid can aggravate ovulation, which may cause a lot of hormone imbalance in your body.
  3. An irregular cycle can also make it more difficult to get pregnant naturally, particularly in case you are not ovulating each month. Your specialist can run tests to check whether you are ovulating. Women with sporadic periods who are attempting to have a child are at times prescribed fertility medications to improve ovulation.
  4. Women with irregular menstrual cycles may have a double danger of ovarian cancer as compared to the women who have standard month-to-month period cycles.
  5. Untimely ovarian failure (otherwise called untimely menopause) is the point at which a woman’s ovaries quit working before she turns 40, making her stop ovulating.
  6. Irregular periods can result in a thick coating of the uterus, which can be a hazard for creating uterine cancer.
  7. Irregular periods that are very heavy can result in issues like a low blood count, weakness or anemia.

Hence, if you feel your periods might not be regular and are causing you a lot of problems along with being untimely, you need to consult a gynaecologist immediately.

Garbhpat Ke Gharelu Nuskhe in Hindi - गर्भपात के घरेलू नुस्खे

सचमुच माँ बनने का एहसास बहुत ख़ास होता है. जिसकी ख़ुशी के आगे दुनिया की हर ख़ुशी फीकी लगती है .. लेकिन आप प्रेग्नेंट तब हो जाएँ जब आप माँ बनने के लिए तैयार ही ना हो यानि बिना फॅमिली प्लानिंग के. तब आपके दिल दिमाग में ख़ुशी, उत्साह के बजाय घबराहट, बेचैनी और डर हावी हो जाता है. 

गर्भपात करने के कई वजहें हो सकती हैं. कई बार ऐसा होता है कि संभोग के दौरान  प्रेमी प्रेमिका या पति पत्नी गर्भ निरोधक तरीकों का प्रयोग करना भूल जाते हैं, जिससे गर्भ ठहर जाता है. कई बार पति के चाहते हुए भी पत्नी बच्चा पैदा नहीं करना चाहती क्यूंकि  वह अपने शरीर को मेन्टेन रखना चाहती हैं, कई बार महिला की शारीरिक स्थिति माँ बनने योग्य नहीं होती. तो गर्भपात कराने के इस तरह के कई कारण हो सकते है. .और इस बात से हम कतई इंकार नहीं कर सकते की सेक्सुअल लाइफ मां बनने से ज्यादा एंजोयमेंट के लिए अहम होती है. इसलिए जिंदगी में अनचाहे प्रेगनेंसी जैसे आश्चर्य मिलने पर मानसिक स्थिति नाजुक स्तर पर पहुँच  जाती है और खासकर तब जब ये बात अपनों से शेयर भी न की जा सके. शादी-सुदा या धनी महिलाएं तो अस्पतालों में जाकर एबॉर्शन करवा लेती हैं पर गरीब या  कुंवारी लड़कियों के लिए जिन्हें इस बात को सबसे छिपाना भी होता है, उनके लिए ये बात मुसीबतसी का विषय बन जाती है. पर अब नहीं, क्योंकी  अब हम हैं न आपके साथ . जो आपको बताएँगे इस तरह की प्रॉब्लम से छुटकारा पाने के आसान घरेलु उपचार. 

गर्भपात से मतलब होता है माँ के गर्भवती होने के 24 हफ्ते के अंदर ही गर्भ में भ्रूण का  नष्ट होना. इसके 2 स्तर होते है. 

  1. प्रारंभिक गर्भपात : अगर गर्भपात माँ के गर्भवती होने के 12 हफ़्तों के भीतर हो तो उसे प्रारंभिक गर्भपात कहते है.  
  2. उत्तरवर्ती गर्भपात : यदि एबॉर्शन  13 से 24 हफ़्तों के बीच होता है तो उसे उत्तरवर्ती गर्भपात कहा जाता है.

तो अब हम जानेंगे गर्भपात करने में मदद करने वाली उन चीजों के बारे में जो हमारे घर में मौजूद होती हैं.

1. विटामिन सी 
यूँ तो विटामिन सी किसी भी इंसान के लिए काफी अहम होता है, क्योंकि यह विटामिन आपके शरीर की इम्युनिटी सिस्टम को मजबूत करता है. लकिन कई लोग नैचुरली एबॉर्शन करने के लिए बहुत ज्यादा विटामिन सी का इस्तेमाल करने की सलाह दी जाती है.  ऐसा माना जाता है कि बहुत ज्यादा क्वांटिटी में विटामिन सी का सेवन करने से खुद ब खुद गर्भपात हो जाता है. अगर आप विटामिन सी वाले फल और खासकर आवंला का सेवन प्रचूर मात्रा में करें तो गर्भपात होने की पूरी संभावना है.

2. पुदीना 
 पुदीने का तेल या पुदीने की चाय को प्रतिदिन 3 से 4 बार लेने से माहिला खुद को थका हुआ और चिडचिडापन महसूस करती है, साथ ही इससे इन्हें पसीना भी बहुत आता है. और ये सभी कारक स्त्री के गर्भपात को बढ़ावा देते है.

3. वर्कआउट 
गर्भ गिराने की कोशिश में आपको जरूरी नहीं की बस खाना ही पड़े. जी हाँ आप खूब जमकर उछल-कूद और एक्सरसाइज करें ये भी आपको गर्भ गिराने में मदद करेंगे.

4. पपीता और अनानास 
 गर्भपात के लिए पपीते के बारे में आप सभी ने सुना होगा. क्योकि हर गर्भवती स्त्री को ये सलाह दी जाती है कि वो पपीते से दूर रहे वर्ना उन्हें गर्भ से जुडी समस्या हो सकती है, पर आपको तो एबॉर्शन करवाना है तो आप जितना हो सके पपीता और अनानास खायें. और इसका एक फायदा यह भी है कि इससे पीरियड्स भी जल्दी आते है. इन दोनों में पाया जाने वाला रसायन जिसे पपेन कहा जाता है वह गर्भपात को बढ़ावा देता है. 

5. ग्रीन टी 
ग्रीन टी या हरी चाय से शरीर को कई फायदे होते हैं, जैसे कि वजन कम करना, शरीर को चुस्त रखना, हृदय को स्वस्थ रखना आदि. लेकिन अगर इसका ज्यादा सेवन कर लिए जाये तो ये शरीर के लिए समस्या भी उत्पन्न कर सकता है. खासतौर पर गर्भवती स्त्रियों के लिए. इसीलिए इसके पैकेट पर भी लिखा होता है कि गर्भवती स्त्री इसका सेवन न करें. पर आपको तो करना है एबॉर्शन तो आप करें इसका भरपूर इस्तेमाल .

ब्लड प्रेशर बढाएं 
अगर आपका ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़  जाता है तो पीरियड के दौरान आपको ज्यादा खून आता है . इसी तरह ये भी आपके गर्भपात के लिए फायदेमंद होता है. इसलिए आप ऐसी चीजें खाएं जो आपके ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ा दें और आप अपनी समस्या से छुटकारा पा जाएं .  

इन नुस्खों को तो आप बेशक अपनाएं पर नीचे बताई कुछ बातों पर खास गौर फरमाएं .

  1. जितना हो सके सेक्स के दौरान गर्भनिरोधक का इस्तेमाल और बार-बार गर्भपात करने से बचें . अन्यथा आपका स्वास्थ्य और भविष्य में माँ बनने की चाहत दोनों खतरे में पड़ सकते हैं.
  2. पुरुष साथी हर बार कंडोम का इस्तेमाल करें जिससे महिला साथी गर्भपात जैसी तकलीफों से बची रहें. 
  3. आपका शरीर स्वस्थ ना हो तो इन उपायों को अजमाने के साथ ही डॉक्टर की भी सलाह लें. 
  4. ध्यान दें की घरेलू गर्भपात का तरीका तभी तक काम करता है, जब गर्भ 1 या 2 महीने का हो वरना डॉक्टर से जरुर संपर्क करें.

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle i.e. On day of ovulation. That means when you say you tried for 5 months actually in practical terms there were only 5 tries. This is short time given to nature. However how long more to wait depends on your age, younger you are more you can wait. Normally 12-24 months is range. Though body does not work like calculator, having sexual relationship around 12 to 18 days may be alternate days would give better results. If very eager then you as couple can meet Gynecologist to start non-invasive reports. However it is important to have some reports and some vaccinations before planning pregnancy. If same is not done meet Gynecologist for same.

8 Simple Tips to Keep Your Eyes Cool and Protected During the Summers

8 Simple Tips to Keep Your Eyes Cool and Protected During the Summers

During summer you try to take special care about the overall health of your body, particularly, your eyes. Eyes are one of the most important organs of the body, and the scorching summer heat can cause serious eye problems like conjunctivitis, infections, red eye, migraines etc., which is why it's important to take proper care of eyes during the summer season.

Here are some tips to keep your eyes cool and protected during the summer:

  • Wearing sunglasses is very important when you are outdoors as it protects your eyes from the harmful UVA and UVB light. This will help in avoiding migraines and even serious conditions like cataract.
  • Avoid midday sunshine. Stay indoors as much as possible during the middle of the day to avoid the sunshine then when the effect of the sun and ultraviolet radiation exposure are at their peak.
  • When you plan to go for a swim, make sure you wear your swimming goggles. Otherwise you might catch conjunctivitis.
  • You should not splash water into the eyes directly unless any foreign particles such as dust enter your eyes. This might damage the tear film of the eye, which protects your eyes.
  • You need to maintain proper hygiene by washing your hands and face properly as soon as you reach home so that dust or grime does not enter the eyes as their entry can result in allergies and infections.
  • You can keep a slice of cucumber on each of your eyes to relax and cool them down.
  • 6 to 8 hours of sleep are a must as they help in revitalizing your eyes.
  • Adding green vegetables, carrots, nuts, liver and fruits to your diet would be very beneficial for the health of your eyes.
