Health Tip

Herniated disks or bone spurs in the vertebrae of the neck may become the reason behind severe neck pain. They sometimes take too much space and compress the nerves branching out from the spinal cord.

This means either her diet is wrong or she is not receiving proper treatment kindly mention ongoing treatment in detail and revert. Slip disc is difficult to treat but you should use lumbosacral belt and proper posture is really important in your case. Avoid massages by inexperienced people.

Uterine Prolapse - Can Decrease in the Estrogen Level Lead to it?

Uterine Prolapse - Can Decrease in the Estrogen Level Lead to it?

The womb or the uterus is a muscular structure that is fixed in its place by the ligaments and the pelvic muscles. If these ligaments or muscles become weak or stretch, they no longer will be capable of holding the uterus, resulting in a prolapse. Uterine prolapse happens when the uterine slips or sags from its usual position into the birth canal or vagina. The main indications of uterine prolapse are recurrent bladder infections, constipation, a tug at the pelvic area, the cervix or uterus protruding out of the vagina, problems during sexual intercourse, increased discharge and vaginal bleeding.

What causes it?
1. Age is the most important reason for this condition to manifest itself.
2. A dip in the estrogen level as this hormone keeps the pelvic muscles strong.
3. Damage to the pelvic tissues and muscles due to pregnancy or during childbirth can also contribute to this condition.
4. A woman who has undergone multiple vaginal births is at an increased risk of this condition.
5. Any physical activity that exerts pressure on the pelvic muscles can also result in this disorder.
6. Chronic constipation and obesity, over time, can lead to this disorder.

How it can be treated?
1. Nonsurgical methods:

  • Shedding the extra kilos helps reduce stress from the pelvic structures. This helps to avert this disorder.
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects throughout the course of the treatment.
  • Pelvic floor exercises or Kegel exercises help build up the vaginal muscles.
  • Estrogen replacement therapy or Hormone Replacement Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of this disease.
  • Wearing a pessary (an instrument that is placed into the vagina and fits under the cervix) helps to push up and stabilize the cervix and the uterus.

2. Surgical treatments:

  • Uterine suspension- In this case, the surgeon inserts the uterus back into its former position by reattaching the pelvic ligaments by the use of surgical techniques.
  • Hysterectomy- Here, the surgeon removes either the whole or just a part of the womb.

However, such procedures should not be opted by women who plan on getting pregnant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Health Benefits Of Barley

Health Benefits Of Barley

Did you know barley water is good for kidney stones?
Barley (jau), a member of grass family, is a cereal that has been cultivated for over 13, 000 years. Packed with carbohydrates (78%), fat (1%), protein (10%) and water (10%), barley is a rich source of essential nutrients, dietary fiber, vitamins such as niacin, manganese, phosphorus and vitamin B6.

With several health benefits to its name, barley water is termed as the elixir to good health. It has been found to be beneficial in reducing chances of heart disease, soothing bowels, reducing blood cholesterol levels, improving blood sugar regulation in the body and acts as nutritive broth for fever, cold and cough. Additionally, studies support that barley water has also been found to play an integral role in maintaining renal health.

What is a renal stone?
A renal stone is a solid stony piece consisting of crystal forming substances in the urinary tract. They are usually formed when the urine is abundant in substances such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid and lack substances that inhibit their accumulation. While small kidney stones can pass through the urinary system without any symptoms, a stone larger than 5 mm can result in blockages in the urinary tract causing severe pain in the back and lower abdomen.

What causes renal stones?
- A family history for stones, lack of adequate water in the body, high BMI, excessive intake of diets rich in protein, sodium and sugar have been found to be some of the common causes for stone formation.

Try protein foods & supplements
- Medical conditions such as hyperthyroidism, inflammatory bowel syndrome and renal tubular acidosis have also been found to alter the digestion of calcium.

How does barley water aid the dissolution of renal stones?
Studies show that regular use of barley water can dissolve and eliminate existing kidney stones and prevent the occurrence of stones and other kidney problems. Use of diuretics either natural or synthetic can help speed up the expulsion of the stone.

Diuretic in nature, barley water helps to flush toxins from the kidneys by creating bladder pressure and increasing the frequency of urination.

- It helps maintain the PH levels in the body, making it alkaline, preventing various urinary tract issues, including kidney stones.

- The vitamin B6 and magnesium in barley helps break down the masses of toxic calcium oxalate (primary cause for stones) in the kidney.

Dietary fiber in barley reduces the amount of calcium that is excreted by the body through urine, restoring renal health and cleansing the kidneys.

Ways to prepare barley water:
- Boil 1 litre of water with a tablespoon of barley pearls and boil on a low flame for about 30 minutes or until the water has reduced to half.
- Strain and cool this mix and drink it through the day.
- Add lemon juice or honey to make the mix tasty

Regular use of barley water ensures that the renal system is hydrated, healthy and free of depositions such as renal stones. So, go ahead and add this elixir to your diet to ensure a healthy renal system and a healthier you. Eat healthy, stay healthy!

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

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.

Causes, Types And Treatment Of Bone Fracture!

Causes, Types And Treatment Of Bone Fracture!

Broken bone is commonly known as bone fracture a d it occurs when an exorbitant amount of force is applied causing the bone to split or shatter. While some minor fractures lead to cracks and crannies, others may lead to complete breakage of the bones. Despite being hard, bones are formed in such a way that they can absorb pressure to only a certain extent, beyond which they break. Statistically, the incidence of broken bones are most common in children and in old age people.

Causes of Bone Fracture
Bone fracture can be caused due to a number of reasons; both intentional and accidental. Some of them include:
1. Accidents and injuries: Sports injuries, being hit by a car and tripping and falling are some of the typical episodes.
2. Old age: Diseases such as osteoporosis and brittle bone disease are common in aged people. As bones tend to become more fragile among the aged, they are at a greater chance of bone fractures.

Type of bone fractures

Primarily bone fractures are of four types, based on the way the bone splits. They are:

  1. Complete fracture: This type of fracture refers to a complete breakage of the bone wherein the fracture may occur at various parts of the bone.
  2. Incomplete fracture: In this type of fracture, the bone partially breaks instead of splitting entirely.
  3. Compound fractures: This is a type of a fracture wherein the bone breaks past the skin. It is also known as an open fracture.
  4. Simple fracture: In this type of a fracture, the bone breaks without causing an open wound on the skin.

Treatment of bone fractures
In case of a broken bone, the immediate course of action would be to reach for the first aid box. This can be done to stabilize the bone prior to hospitalization. Icing the injury, elevating the injured area to prevent further swelling and covering the wound with bandages are common measures. In many cases, people also make household splints (made of newspapers) to keep the bone stabilized. Hospitalization and especially surgery, can be also opted for in case of severe fractures. Consult a doctor for more details.

Types and Diagnosis of Uterine Fibroids

Types and Diagnosis of Uterine Fibroids

Noncancerous growths of the muscle tissue surrounding the uterus are known as uterine fibroids. This is a common disease which about 70 to 80% of women contract by the time they are 50 years of age. The uterine fibroids can sometimes be very big and cause heavy periods as well as severe abdominal pain while at other times, uterine fibroids give no signs or symptoms whatsoever and go away on their own. This is why it is crucial to know what type of uterine fibroids you have and how to diagnose them. Here are the types of uterine fibroids and how to diagnose them;

Types
There are three main types of uterine fibroids. They are;

1. Intramural fibroids
The most common type of uterine fibroids are intramural fibroids. They typically appear in the endometrium and may grow larger which results in your womb getting stretched.

2. Subserosal fibroids
Subserosal fibroids are called so because they form on the serosa. The serosa is the outside of your uterus. Sometimes, Subserosal fibroids may grow so large that your uterus appears bigger on one side.

3. Pedunculated fibroids
Pedunculated fibroids tumors are basically Subserosal fibroids with a stem. A base which supports the tumor is called the stem.

Diagnosis
There are a number of tests done to diagnose uterine fibroids. They are;

1. Pelvic exam
A pelvic exam is a thorough inspection of a woman pelvic area. The organs which are in the pelvic area include the cervix, ovaries, uterus and vagina. Normally, this and the next test in this article are enough to diagnose uterine fibroids.

2. Medical history
The history of your periods as well as the other symptoms you have will often be enough to diagnose the uterine fibroids. If your medical history is not enough, then you might need to undergo a pelvic exam.

3. Pelvic ultrasound
An ultrasound is when high-intensity sound waves are used to produce images of the pelvic area. This is only done when a pelvic exam and your medical history are not enough to diagnose uterine fibroids. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
