The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Because this is an oral habit, there will be a tendency to over-eat to satiate the oral need. This will in turn increase your body weight, though I don't know that that will be desirable for long.

It's good to replace white rice by brown rice if you want weight loss .avoiding food after 6 pm doesn't make sense you can take light dinner and protein foods till night and high fiber foods as well.In fact you need to take small and frequent meals at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs for weight loss.

Cholesterol: Good and Bad of It

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Cholesterol: Good and Bad of It

Over the last few decades, the word cholesterol has assumed a different connotation. It has come to be known as a silent killer that spells doom for health. However, what we need to realize is that a certain amount of cholesterol is essential for the proper functioning of the body. The liver produces about 85% of the cholesterol that is required by the body normally. The ever changing food habits have introduced a lot of processed foods that are loaded with saturated fats. Along with this, reduced physical activity has led to accumulation of cholesterol in the blood.

The types of cholesterol are based on the density and we have 2 types of density that is Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is more dangerous than HDL, called as bad and good cholesterol respectively. In addition, the triglycerides and lipoprotein are also critical indicators of overall cholesterol levels. Depending on a person's age, height and weight, normal levels are derived for each of these four.

Because of their density of the cholesterol molecules, as they are circulating in the blood stream, they tend to get sluggish and settle down along the walls of the blood vessels, referred to as plaque. This plaque attracts more and more cholesterol from the blood and the layer gets gradually thicker. This reduces the thickness of the blood vessels and in severe cases even completely blocks blood flow to important organs like the brain and heart, leading to severe conditions like stroke and heart attack respectively.

However, it is not always that all cholesterol is bad. It is one of the essential things for the proper body functions with the main functions listed below:

  1. Each cell in the body requires it to form the cell membrane, the protective layer around the cells
  2. Synthesis of vitamin D is done with the help of cholesterol, which is very essential for skin health
  3. It also helps in hormone formation. In addition to steroids, other hormones like testosterone, estrogen, cortisol require cholesterol as a main ingredient
  4. Formation of neurotransmitters and overall nerve function requires cholesterol. This ensures optimal neurological functioning.

So, as noted above, there are, both good and bad aspects to cholesterol. It is not all that dangerous a thing that it is made out to be. The trick is to maintain a good level of cholesterol so that the body's requirements are met, and at the same time, the harmful effects are kept at bay. Some important parameters to manage, include the percentage of bad cholesterol in the blood and the ratio of triglycerides to HDL in the blood. These are considered fair indicators of heart health and if need be, lifestyle changes and/or medications can be undertaken to manage overall health and reduce risk of heart disease and stroke.

Appendicitis - How To Treat It?

Appendicitis - How To Treat It?

Even Roald Dahl faked having appendicitis in his famous book, but, what exactly is appendicitis? Wouldn’t it be a little interesting, to say the least, to find out what causes it and what treatment a person can expect to undergo in the case of getting it?

Quite simply, appendicitis is the name of the condition when the appendix swells up. Under normal circumstances, it is about three and a half inches in length. The ironic part about this is the fact that though appendicitis may cause tremendous pain and warrants surgery, no doctor is really aware of the reason why the appendix exists, in the first place! As a matter of fact, it is fully possible to live without an appendix and many people have not experienced any health problems after having their appendix removed.

While the appendix does not serve any properly defined function, this really does not mean that appendicitis is something that is not all that serious. In fact, if there is an explosion of the appendix, a person can die without very strong levels of medication in a time bound manner!

So, what is the cause behind this scary prospect? Simply said, when the appendix gets blocked, the result is appendicitis. What blocks it? Well, it could be cancer, a foreign body or even stool! That being said, it is to be kept in mind that this is not the only reason as to why appendicitis exists. If there is an infection in the body, in response to it, the appendix may end up getting inflamed.

With the exception of a very small minority of cases in which very strong antibiotics are made use of in order to treat appendicitis, a surgery to remove the appendix is usually a given case scenario when a person has appendicitis. As a matter of fact, it is treated as an emergency and the doctors go ahead and start the treatment as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of the rupture of the appendix.

It usually takes about two or three weeks before a person can get back to normal activities though some gentle movement can be undertaken within about twelve hours since the end of the operation. There are two types of surgery. If a laparoscopic surgery is being performed, the recovery is relatively straightforward but if an open surgery is performed, the recovery can take more time and would require a greater amount of care.

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

My mother was treated for bilateral pulmonary embolism and during post discharge regular intake of warfarin for 6 months suggested. She is diabetic and also bedridden due to minor compression fracture in backbone as well as two minor cracks on pelvic bone. Due to warfarin intake blood in urine observed followed by urine infection further requiring intensive care on hospitalization. Is there any proven substitute for warfarin either in ayurveda or else homeopathy?

Your mother has multiple problems. 1. Pulmonary embolism, for which she needs to take anticoagulants. There are substitute drugs available (if she is having problems with warfarin). These drugs are either in injectable form (low molecular weight heparin injections) or tablets (newer anticoagulants). The safety profile of these drugs is better than warfarin and the do not need strict monitering like warfarin does. 2. Backbone compression and pelvic bone cracks could be due to osteoporosis (weak bones, sply in females after menopause). Osteoporosis in itself needs treatment (calcium, vit D and specific drugs). So discuss with your doctor in detail about osteoporosis, and secondary prevention of thrombosis (blood clotting and embolism).

Exercise at least 45 minutes a day helps to develop muscles. Outdoor games and physical activities help to build muscles and regulate appetite. A walk before meals can be done to feel hunger. Take balanced nutritious foods. Do not miss any meal. Avoid junk food. Avoid carbonated beverages. Take iron rich food like pulses, millets, vegetables, milk, milk products, etc. Fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, vegetables provide high quality protein and calories and are also rich in iron. Home based foods are best. Salads are preferable as they are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibers. Easily digestible fats like cream, butter, oils will help to increase the weight. Two feeds incorporating soups, juices or sweets in between meals improve the nutritive value of diet. Porridge, cutlets, desserts, potato chips, milk, malt, badam kheer are rich source of energy and protein. Sufficient water should be taken.
