Facts Of Human Brain

MBBS,CCA,DCA,AASECT,FPA,AAD,F.H.R.SM.I.M.S
General Physician, Bangalore
Facts Of Human Brain

The human brain is the most complex and least understood part of the human anatomy. There may be a lot we don’t know, but here are a few interesting facts that we’ve got covered.

Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? it’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

The brain operates on the same amount of power as 10-watt light bulb. The cartoon image of a light bulb over your head when a great thought occurs isn’t too far off the mark. Your brain generates as much energy as a small light bulb even when you’re sleeping.

The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the encyclopedia britannica. Or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a definitive amount, but the storage capacity of the brain in electronic terms is thought to be between 3 or even 1, 000 terabytes. The national archives of britain, containing over 900 years of history, only takes up 70 terabytes, making your brain’s memory power pretty darn impressive.

Your brain uses 20% of the oxygen that enters your bloodstream. The brain only makes up about 2% of our body mass, yet consumes more oxygen than any other organ in the body, making it extremely susceptible to damage related to oxygen deprivation. So breathe deep to keep your brain happy and swimming in oxygenated cells.

The brain is much more active at night than during the day. Logically, you would think that all the moving around, complicated calculations and tasks and general interaction we do on a daily basis during our working hours would take a lot more brain power than, say, lying in bed. Turns out, the opposite is true. When you turn off your brain turns on. Scientists don’t yet know why this is but you can thank the hard work of your brain while you sleep for all those pleasant dreams.

Scientists say the higher your i. q. The more you dream. While this may be true, don’t take it as a sign you’re mentally lacking if you can’t recall your dreams. Most of us don’t remember many of our dreams and the average length of most dreams is only 2-3 seconds–barely long enough to register.

Neurons continue to grow throughout human life. For years scientists and doctors thought that brain and neural tissue couldn’t grow or regenerate. While it doesn’t act in the same manner as tissues in many other parts of the body, neurons can and do grow throughout your life, adding a whole new dimension to the study of the brain and the illnesses that affect it.

Information travels at different speeds within different types of neurons. Not all neurons are the same. There are a few different types within the body and transmission along these different kinds can be as slow as 0.5 meters/sec or as fast as 120 meters/sec.

The brain itself cannot feel pain. While the brain might be the pain center when you cut your finger or burn yourself, the brain itself does not have pain receptors and cannot feel pain. That doesn’t mean your head can’t hurt. The brain is surrounded by loads of tissues, nerves and blood vessels that are plenty receptive to pain and can give you a pounding headache.

80% of the brain is water. Your brain isn’t the firm, gray mass you’ve seen on tv. Living brain tissue is a squishy, pink and jelly-like organ thanks to the loads of blood and high water content of the tissue. So the next time you’re feeling dehydrated get a drink to keep your brain hydrated.

Cerebral Ischaemia And Cerebral Congestion - Homoeopathic Treatment For It!

Cerebral Ischaemia And Cerebral Congestion - Homoeopathic Treatment For It!

Cerebral ischaemia or brain ischemia is a medical condition that restricts the flow of blood to the brain, resulting in an unmet metabolic demand. This leads to limited oxygen supply in the brain, which could result in death of brain tissues, cerebral infarction or an ischemic stroke. Thus, a cardiorespiratory arrest, a stroke, and irreversible brain damage are few possible consequences of cerebral ischaemia.

People with compressed blood vessels, low blood pressure, congenital heart defects or sickle cell anaemia have a high risk of developing cerebral ischaemia, since compressed blood vessels or very low pressure can lead to restricted blood flow. Also, sickle-shaped cells have a greater tendency to clot, causing obstructed blood flow.

Patients with cerebral ischaemia experience a host of symptoms, such as weakness in the body, problems in coordination and movement, vision and speech impairment and unconsciousness.

Cerebral congestion, on the other hand, refers to excessive quantity of blood in the brain vessels, causing pressure on the cerebral substance. Cerebral congestion is of two types. It is termed as active when there is too much arterial blood flow and passive when there is undue quantity of venous blood in the veins of the brain. Both conditions cause symptoms, such as severe headache, insomnia, irritability and unconsciousness. The patient gets little sleep and is disturbed, often followed by dreams. When awake, the patient’s mental activity in the brain is very high.

Homeopathy is now a well-established school of medicine backed with years of research and practice. Gone are the days when homeopathy was considered no more than an extension of herbal home remedies. Homeopathic laboratories around the world produce large number of medicines covering almost all ailments. The benefits of homeopathic treatment are now well established due to its holistic approach and minimal side effects. Homeopathy is undoubtedly a ray of hope for patients with cerebral ischaemia and cerebral congestion, as it delivers a comprehensive treatment plan designed to target the signs and symptoms of the disease and address its non-occurrence.

The medications deal with mild to severe symptoms, including inflammation of the brain, headache, vomiting, insomnia, stroke/convulsions and seizures. The stramonium drug, for example, deals with seizures. Belladonna is an effective remedy for sharp shooting headaches, a common symptom of cerebral congestion. Ferrum is believed to be a valuable remedy for brain ischaemia. Few drugs deal with the symptoms of both ischaemia and congestion—nux is a suitable drug for the treatment of ischaemia as well as for passive cerebral congestion. Similarly, phosphorus can be used to treat brain ischaemia and congestion. Zincum metallicum is a highly recommended drug for chronic cases of ischaemia.

The treatment is comprehensive and long term and shows substantive results. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 42 years old. My disk slip in L4-L5. Now I can't walk more than 100 metres. It is in grade 1 condition .What shall I do know?

Back Pain:This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side.•Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise.

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

गर्भाशय महिलाओं का एक विशिष्ट अंग है जिसमें कई तरह की नियमित प्रक्रियाएं चलती रहती हैं. यदि ठीक से इसकी देखभाल या रखरखाव नहीं किया जाए तो इसके बेहद गंभीर परिणाम हो सकते हैं. इसलिए ये आवश्यक है कि इस विषय में बात किया जाए और जागरूकता फैलाया जाए. यदि हमें गर्भाशय के सफाई के प्रति जागरूक होना है तो पहले हमें ये जानना होगा कि गर्भाशय क्या है? और कैसे काम करता है?
 

क्या है गर्भाशय?
गर्भाशय स्त्री जननांग है. यह 7.5 सेमी लम्बी, 5 सेमी चौड़ी तथा इसकी दीवार 2.5 सेमी मोटी होती है. इसका वजन लगभग 35 ग्राम तथा इसकी आकृति नाशपाती के आकार के जैसी होती है. जिसका चौड़ा भाग ऊपर फंडस तथा पतला भाग नीचे इस्थमस कहलाता है. महिलाओं में यह मूत्र की थैली और मलाशय के बीच में होती है तथा गर्भाशय का झुकाव आगे की ओर होने पर उसे एन्टीवर्टेड कहते है अथवा पीछे की तरफ होने पर रीट्रोवर्टेड कहते है. गर्भाशय के झुकाव से बच्चे के जन्म पर कोई प्रभाव नहीं पड़ता है. गर्भाशय का ऊपरी चौड़ा भाग बाडी तथा निचला भाग तंग भाग गर्दन या इस्थमस कहलाता है. इस्थमस नीचे योनि में जाकर खुलता है. इस क्षेत्र को औस कहते है. यह 1.5 से 2.5 सेमी बड़ा तथा ठोस मांसपेशियों से बना होता है. गर्भावस्था के विकास गर्भाशय का आकार बढ़कर स्त्री की पसलियों तक पहुंच जाता है. साथ ही गर्भाशय की दीवारे पतली हो जाती है.
 

कैसे होती है गरर्भाशय कि सफाई?
डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज (डी एंड सी) एक सर्जिकल प्रक्रिया है जिसमें गर्भाशय ग्रीवा (गर्भाशय का निचला, संकीर्ण हिस्सा) को डाएलेट (फैलाते) करते हैं ताकि गर्भाशय की परत को क्युरेट के द्वारा क्यूरेटेज (खुरच कर निकालना) किया जा सके जिससे असामान्य ऊतकों को निकाला जा सके. प्रत्येक मासिक चक्र के साथ, एंडोमेट्रियम जो गर्भाशय की लाइनिंग है, भ्रूण का पोषण करने के लिए तैयार होती है. एस्ट्रोजन और प्रोजेस्टेरोन के बढ़ते स्तर इसकी इस लाइनिंग को मोटाई देने में मदद करते हैं. यदि निषेचित अंडे का आरोपण नहीं होता है, तो एंडोमेट्रियम लाइनिंग टूट जाती है. यह लाइनिंग योनि और गर्भाशय ग्रीवा से रक्त और म्यूकस के साथ मिलकर, मासिक की ब्लीडिंग के साथ निकाल दी जाती है. पोलिप, बॉडी सेल्स की असामान्य ग्रोथ को कहते हैं. जब पोलिप गर्भाशय की भीतरी दीवार से जुड़ा होता है तो, यह गर्भाशय के पॉलीव्स / यूट्रिन पोलिप या एंडोमेट्रियल पोलिप कहलाता है. यह गर्भाशय की कैविटी में लटकता है.
 

पोलिप कैसे हटाते हैं?
गर्भाशय के अस्तर में कोशिकाओं के अधिक बढ़ जाने पर यह पोलिप बनते हैं. यूट्रिन पोलिप का आकार एक तिल के दाने से छोटा से लाकर गोल्फ बॉल जितना बड़ा हो सकता है. पोलिप एक बड़े आधार या पतले तने से गर्भाशय की दीवार से जुड़े रहते हैं. बड़े पोलिप को हटाने के लिए बहुत बार डीएनसी के लिए कहा जाता है. कई बार गर्भाशय से एबनार्मल ब्लीडिंग होने लगती है. ऐसा गर्भाशय के अंदर पोलिप होने से, लाइनिंग बढ़ जाने, पूरी तरह से गर्भपात नहीं होने या डिलीवरी के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई नहीं होने से हो सकता है. स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ को दिखाने पर वे पेल्विक की जांच के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई या डी एंड सी के लिए कह सकती हैं. डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज को सफाई के लिए, गर्भपात के लिए, पीरियड के असामान्य होने पर, या पूरे गर्भपात नहीं होने पर किया जाता है.
 

डी एंड सी इस प्रक्रिया के लिए:

  • आपको अस्पताल द्वारा दिया गया कपड़ा पहनने को दिया जायेगा. आपको मूत्राशय को खाली करने का निर्देश दिया जाएगा. आपको ऑपरेटिंग टेबल पर पोजीशन किया जाएगा. आपके बांह या हाथ में एक अंतःशिरा (IV) लाइन शुरू हो सकती है. एक मूत्र कैथेटर डाला जा सकता है. योनि की दीवारों को फैलाने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को देखने के लिए अपनी योनि में एक स्पेकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट डाला जाएगा.
  • सर्विक्स को एंटीसेप्टिक से साफ़ किया जाएगा. एनेस्थीसिया दिया जाएगा. टेनाकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट से गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को स्थिर रखने के लिए किया जा सकता है. गर्भाशय की लंबाई निर्धारित करने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा के अंदर यूटेरिन साउंड डाला जा सकता है. सर्विक्स को पतली रोड्स से फैलया जाएगा.
  • क्यूरेट से गर्भाशय साफ़ किया जाएगा. प्रक्रिया के बाद कुछ दिनों तक ब्लीडिंग होना सामान्य है. डी एंड सी के बाद कुछ दिनों तक आपको ऐंठन का अनुभव हो सकता है. आपको निर्देश दिया जा सकता है कि डी एंड सी के दो से तीन सप्ताह बाद तक, आप डूश, टैम्पोन का इस्तेमाल न करें, सेक्स नहीं करें और योनि में कुछ न डालें, या जब तक ब्लीडिंग नहीं रुक जाए. 1-2 सप्ताह बाद तक क्रेम्पिंग हो सकती है. अगला पीरियड जल्दी या देर से आ सकता है. ऐंठन या पीड़ा के लिए एक दर्द निवारक के रूप में अपने चिकित्सक द्वारा सिफारिश की दवा ही लें. एस्पिरिन या कुछ अन्य दर्द नाशक दवाओं से रक्तस्राव की संभावना बढ़ सकती है.

No issues. Low cholesterol has no problems. But yes you can decrease the dose of the statins by half and recheck the lipid profile after 3 months. Long term statins treatment also has side effects. Also you need to understand about cholesterol Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck Check out - Simplified health explanation videos on my YouTube channel And Do not forget to Subscribe for upcoming videos.

Ultrasound - How it is Beneficial over Other Imaging Techniques?

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Ultrasound - How it is Beneficial over Other Imaging Techniques?

Ultra sound is commonly known as sonography. It is a process of reproducing ultrasound images of soft tissues of a particular body part and other organs on the computer screen with the help of the echoes of the sound waves produced by the transducer, a high-frequency generating instrument.
Ultra sound is commonly used during the different stages of pregnancy to denote the foetal health, date of delivery, birth defects etc. However, in recent times, the ultra sound has also been associated with the diagnosis of other body parts such as the eyes, heart, gall bladder, liver, ovary, uterus, kidney, uterus, testicles, and ovaries. Ultra sound has also been useful in conducting biopsies for suspecting cancer patients, although not all of the cancers are detected by this imaging process. 3D & 4D ultrasound imaging are useful for looking at a particular body portion with much more precision and in slow motion respectively.

The advantages of ultra sound are:
1. The process of ultrasound imaging is a painless and a fast one. It does not require any insertion of needles or similar objects to denote the problems of the concerned body part.
2. The process is more convenient as compared to other similar imaging processes like MRI, mammogram and x-rays as they can capture images of the soft tissues, blood flow & cysts more clearly than the other processes.
3. The process is free of any harmful effects as there are no chances of exposure to radiation as compared to similar processes such as CT scans or X-rays. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Fibroids In The Uterus - How Myomectomy Can Cure It?

MBBS, DGO, FICOG, Master of Population Studies (MPS)
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Fibroids In The Uterus - How Myomectomy Can Cure It?

Fibroids are non-cancerous growth that develop in the uterus in varying sizes. Fibroids do not usually show symptoms, but if they are large they may cause severe pain in the abdomen, heavy menstrual bleeding, bloating, infertility or complications during pregnancy. Several factors may lead to the formation of fibroids, including hormones, family history, and pregnancy.

What is myomectomy?

Myomectomy is the surgical procedure which is used for removing fibroids from the uterus. It is a safe method that allows women to become pregnant in future. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue therapy, performed before myomectomy helps in lowering the estrogen level and also controls anemia by stopping uterine bleeding. The different surgical methods for myomectomy include:

  • Hysteroscopy, involving the insertion of a lighted viewing instrument into the uterus
  • Laparoscopy, involving the insertion of a lighted viewing instrument and one or more incisions in the abdomen
  • Laparotomy, involving a larger incision made in the abdomen

Why is the surgery performed?

Myomectomy treats fibroids while preserving the uterus. It is a viable option for those who have:

  • Anemia which cannot be controlled with medicines
  • Pain which cannot be tackled with medicines
  • A fibroid that can cause infertility or increases the risk of miscarriages

How well does it work?

  • Pregnancy: myomectomy is the only treatment for treating fibroids that improve your chances of having a baby. The method is effective for treating submucosal fibroid. A cesarean section is required for delivery after performing a myomectomy.
  • Recurrence: recurrence of fibroids after myomectomy is really low. It is possible in rare cases, depending on what the original fibroid problem was. Large and numerous fibroids have a greater risk of recurrence. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My wife aged 28, diagnosed with breast cancer with stage 3B. Initially, they have given 5 neo-adjuvant chemotherapy followed with modified radical mastectomy with LD flap reconstruction on 9th of this month. Surgeon, told that everything is fine and there was no treatment for 1 month but our doctor told there is large gap after surgery and started 6 chemo cycle yesterday and told as the wound is wet the disease will come back. He also told that as the gap is large he cannot give radiation therapy. Again today he told he can start radiation after 2 weeks. I am unable to understand her situation.

Do not worry Your wife has been given Neoadjuvant 5 chemotherapy cycles and than surgery done Subsequent chemotherapy can only be given when wound healing is complete. As chemotherapy will prevent healing and infection sets in. So delay of one month was unavoidable if I understand correctly. Now 6th cycle has been given and radiotherapy will be given after 3 weeks of completion of last chemotherapy. This is followed everywhere in the world.

Breast Cancer - Know The Signs & Symptoms!

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Gurgaon
Breast Cancer - Know The Signs & Symptoms!

The cancer which forms in the cells of the breasts is breast cancer. It is one of the most common forms of cancer to affect women after skin cancer. Support for breast cancer awareness and proper funding for research on the issue has ensured that proper awareness is created for getting it diagnosed properly and then carry out the treatment in an appropriate manner. Fortunately, due to the fact that people all around have become aware of how cancer occurs, what are symptoms which they should be aware of and then for the doctors, what should be the ideal way for exact diagnosis, so that they can treat patients and help them recover, survival rates have increased dramatically and thus number of deaths associated with it is on the decline.

Types of breast cancer
There are different types of Breast Cancer, some are more common than others. Some of the most common types are detailed below:

  1. Invasive ductal carcinoma: This type of breast cancer starts in a duct of the breast and grows into the tissue surrounding it. It is one of the most common forms of breast cancer. Around 80% of invasive breast cancers are invasive ductal carcinoma.
  2. Invasive lobular carcinoma: Invasive lobular carcinoma begins in the milk producing glands of the breast and spreads all around with time.

Now let’s take a look at some of the less common types of breast cancer:

  1. Mucinous carcinoma: The mucus producing cancer cells generally give rise to mucinous carcinoma.
  2. Inflammatory breast cancer: When a woman suffers from inflammatory breast cancer, the skin of the breast would appear red and she would feel warm. The changes occur because the cancer cells block the lymph vessels.
  3. Paget’s disease of the nipple: This type of cancer begins in the ducts of the breast, getting spread to the nipple and the region surrounding the nipple. Women affected by this type of cancer can easily notice crusting and reddish tinge around the nipple.

Signs & symptoms of breast cancer
After having looked at the different types of breast cancer, let us now come to the main topic of discussion, the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

  1. The different signs and symptoms of breast cancer are discussed below:
  2. A change in size or shape of the breast
  3. A lump or if an area feels thicker in comparison to the rest of the breast, then it’s a clear indication of cancer.
  4. A woman could feel that there is chance of breast cancer, if the texture of the skin changes.
  5. There will be a reddish tinge or rash on the skin or the area around the nipple, to suggest that breast cancer is a possibility.
  6. If you realize that liquid is oozing out from the nipple, even without getting it squeezed, then that is also a clear symptom for cancer.
  7. If you feel that area either in the armpit or around the collarbone, is swollen, it’s a signal for breast cancer.
