How Can You Regain Your Hearing With Hearing Aids?

How Can You Regain Your Hearing With Hearing Aids?

Loss or impairment of hearing can happen due to a variety of causes and may be temporary or permanent in nature, depending on the type and severity of the condition. One of the most common causes of hearing impairment is age. The degeneration of one's vital organs and senses becomes a reality for many people as the advancement of age happens, and the delicate insides of the ears are no different. Noise pollution, injury to the ear drum or any other part of the ear, as well as the movement of particles inside are only a few of the many reasons for loss of hearing. One of the many ways of dealing with long term hearing impairment is by using a hearing aid.

Read on to know how you can regain your hearing with hearing aids:

  1. Long Forgotten Sound: A hearing aid will help you reacquaint yourself with long forgotten and subtle sounds that you may not have been able to hear for a long time. Many times, this kind of impairment also makes us forget to notice the fact that we do not hear so many normal sounds in our everyday lives - sounds that we probably did not notice even earlier. This may include the whirring of a fan, the whoosh of the air, the pitter patter of pets' feet and so much more. A hearing aid will help in bringing about an adjustment to these sounds that you will actually end up discovering again.
  2. Technicalities: The hearing aid basically works by letting your hearing and ears readjust to the various volumes, intensity and vibrations that one feels when different sounds reach the ears. This helps in hearing better.
  3. Amplification: A hearing aid is basically an electroacoustic device that fits in neatly behind your ear where it is tucked away from plain sight. This device helps in amplifying sounds so that you can catch them and hear them more clearly.
  4. Modulation: The ENT specialist will usually prescribe a certain kind of hearing aid based on your individual condition in terms of volume, size, power and circulation. These factors help in modulating the sounds in a certain way so that they reach the nerve pathways from the inner ear and travel to the brain in a proper and effective way. This is usually done in a customised way to cater to the specific type and cause of your hearing loss.

Using a hearing aid is a matter of retraining your hearing rather than restoring it completely. These aids will be helpful in regaining a better sense of hearing within the condition you are going through, rather than reversing the condition completely.

झाइयों का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज - Jhaiyon Ka Ayurvedik Ilaaj!

झाइयों का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज - Jhaiyon Ka Ayurvedik Ilaaj!

कई त्वचा संक्रमणों में से एक है रंजकता या झाइयां जिसके कारण चेहरे का रंग असामान्य हो जाता है. त्वचा के द्वारा निर्मित मेलेनिन त्वचा को रंग देता है. मेलेनिन का कम उत्पादन कुछ क्षेत्रों में हाइपोपिगमेंटेशन का कारण बनता है जो त्वचा को सफेद धब्बों की ओर ले जाता है या जिसके कारण त्वचा पर हल्के रंग के पैच बन जाते हैं. मेलेनिन का उच्च उत्पादन हाइपरपिगमेंटेशन का कारण बनता है जो परिणामस्वरूप त्वचा पर गहरे या भूरे रंग के धब्बों को उत्पन्न करता है या जिसकी वजह से त्वचा पर गहरे रंग के पैच बन जाते हैं. आइए चेहरे से झाइयाँ को हटाने के आयुर्वेदिक इलाज को इस लेख के माध्यम से जानें.

1. संतरे का छिलका

संतरे के छिलकों को सूरज के सामने सूखने के लिए रख दें. तब तक रखें जब तक ये डिहाइड्रेटेड न हो जाएँ. जब एक बार सूख जाएँ फिर छिलकों को मिक्सर में डालकर एक पाउडर तैयार कर लें. पाउडर में अन्य बची सामग्रियों को भी डाल दें. अब इस मिश्रण को अच्छे से चलाने के बाद प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. इस मिश्रण को त्वचा पर 20 मिनट के लिए ऐसे लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. हफ्ते में तीन से चार बार इस प्रक्रिया को दोहराएं.

2. एवोकाडो

एवोकाडो को तब तक मैश करें जब तक इसकी गुठली बनना कम न हो जाये. अब मैश एवोकाडो को त्वचा पर लगाएं और इसे फिर आधे घंटे के लिए ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. एक महीने के लिए इस पेस्ट को पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर लगाएं. एवोकाडो में विटामिन सी और ओलिक एसिड होता है जो झाइयों के लिए एक बेहतरीन उपाय है.

3. हल्दी पाउडर और नींबू

एक कटोरे में दोनों सामग्री को मिला लें और एक मुलायम पेस्ट तैयार कर लें. अब अपनी त्वचा को सबसे पहले साफ़ कर लें और फिर इस मिश्रण को अपनी त्वचा पर लगाएं. 15 मिनट तक इस मिश्रण को लगे रहने दें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. इस मिश्रण को रात को सोने से पहले पूरे दिन में एक बार ज़रूर लगाएं. हल्दी को आमतौर पर सभी के घरों में इस्तेमाल किया जाता है.

4. सेब का सिरका

सबसे पहले सेब के सिरके को पानी में मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण को अपने प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. इस मिश्रण को पांच मिनट के लिए ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. जब तक आपको नतीजा न दिख जाये तब तक इसका इस्तेमाल पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर करें. सेब के सिरके में मौजूद एस्ट्रिजेंट गुण त्वचा के प्राकृतिक रंग को बनाये रखने में मदद करते हैं.

5. उपचार करें खीरा से

एक कटोरे में सबसे पहले सारी सामग्री को मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण को अपनी त्वचा पर लगाएं. अब मिश्रण को दस मिनट के लिए त्वचा पर ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से साफ़ कर लें. रोज़ाना इस मिश्रण को पूरे दिन में दो बार लगाएं. खीरा त्वचा को फिर से निखारने के लिए जाना जाता है.

6. चंदन की लकड़ी

सभी सामग्रियों को एक साथ मिला लें और एक मुलायम पेस्ट तैयार कर लें. अब इस पेस्ट को अपने प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. पेस्ट को लगाने के बाद इसे आधे घंटे के लिए ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. अब इस पेस्ट को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. इस पेस्ट को पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर लगाएं. चंदन एक बेहद प्रभावी ब्लड प्यूरीफायर है जो झाइयों का इलाज करने में मदद करता है. ये सामग्री आमतौर पर सनस्क्रीन में इस्तेमाल की जाती है. चंदन सूरज की किरणों से बचाने में बेहद लाभदायक सामग्री है.

7. कच्चे आलू

सबसे पहले आलू को धो लें और उसे फिर आधे आधे हिस्से में काट लें. अब कटे हिस्से के ऊपर पानी की कुछ मात्रा डालें. फिर आधे आलू को प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर सब तरफ से लगाएं. अब दस मिनट तक इसे ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें और फिर प्रभावित क्षेत्र को गुनगुने पानी से साफ़ कर लें. पूरे दिन में तीन से चार बार एक महीने के लिए इस प्रक्रिया को करते रहें. आलू को चेहरे पर रगड़ने से झाइयां, काले धब्बे जैसे निशान कम होते नज़र आएंगे.

8. कच्चे आलू

सबसे पहले आलू को धो लें और उसे फिर आधे आधे हिस्से में काट लें. अब कटे हिस्से के ऊपर पानी की कुछ मात्रा डालें. फिर आधे आलू को प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर सब तरफ से लगाएं. अब दस मिनट तक इसे ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें और फिर प्रभावित क्षेत्र को गुनगुने पानी से साफ़ कर लें. पूरे दिन में तीन से चार बार एक महीने के लिए इस प्रक्रिया को करते रहें. आलू को चेहरे पर रगड़ने से झाइयां, काले धब्बे जैसे निशान कम होते नज़र आएंगे.

9. उपाय है दही

एक चम्मच फूल फैट दही लें. अब दही को अपने प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. फिर 20 मिनट के लिए इसे ऐसे ही लगा हुआ छोड़ दें. अब त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. दही को हफ्ते में दो बार ज़रूर लगाएं. दही में लैक्टिक एसिड होता है जो त्वचा को एक्सफोलिएट करने में मदद करता है और मेलानोसाईट को धीरे धीरे कम करता है. ये झाइयों के दौरान खराब होने वाली त्वचा को भी ठीक करता हैं.

10. टमाटर

एक कटोरे में ये सभी सामग्रियों को एक साथ मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण को अपने प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. जब तक ये मिश्रण सूख न जाये तब तक इसे बीस मिनट तक लगाकर रखें. फिर अपनी त्वचा को गुनगुने पानी से धो लें. इस पेस्ट को पूरे दिन में एक बार ज़रूर लगाएं. टमाटर में प्राकृतिक ब्लीचिंग उत्पाद होता है और टमाटर से बना फेस मास्क त्वचा को फिरसे निखारने में मदद करता है.

What You Need To Know About Brain Injury?

MD - Brain Injury Medicine, MD - Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, MD - Internal Medicine
PMR (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation) Specialist, Chennai


  • Traumatic Brain Injury - Happens due to trauma 
  • Anoxic/Hypoxic brain injury - Happens due to decreased blood or oxygen supply to the brain. 
  • Ischemic or hemorrhagic cerebrovascular accident (commonly referred to as stroke) - Happens due to clots occluding the blood vessels in the brain or due to bleeding of blood vessels in the brain  
  • Brain tumors and metastasis (spreading of cancer) to the brain 
  • Vascular malformations of the brain such as Arteriovenous malformation, aneurysm etc - 
  • Brain infections
  • Autoimmune conditions such as  Multiple Sclerosis and auto-immune encephalitis - 
  • Toxic/metabolic causes such as post transplantation, sepsis, liver failure and kidney failure
  • Basically any injury or illness that affects your brain function for a prolonged period of time causing temporary or permanant damage 


Usually individuals affected by these conditions can have a number of symptoms directly related to the brain injury such as

  • One-sided or both sided weakness and numbness of the arms and legs
  • Pain and tightness of the arms and legs
  • Difficulty with speech
  • Impaired consciousness (i.e. impaired arousal)
  • Cognitive impairment such as memory problems, slow thinking skills, problems with attention
  • Changes in their behavior such as aggression
  • Changes in their mood such as depression and anxiety
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Bladder and bowel incontinence
  • Visual problem
  • Hearing problem


There are medical complications that can be noted a few weeks or months after a brain injury. Some common ones include

  • Pneumonia
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Deep vein thrombosis – blood clot in the veins of your arms and legs
  • Pulmonary embolus – blood clot in your lungs
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Heterotopic ossification – a condition which causes stiffness of your joints
  • Seizures
  • Post-stroke shoulder pain – shoulder pain in the weak arm
  • Spasticity – tightness of the muscles of the affected arm and leg
  • Paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity – a condition which causes fluctuations in your blood pressure, heart rate, and also causes abnormal stiffness of the arms and legs
  • Headache
  • Hydrocephalus – a condition where fluid builds up in your brain


A comprehensive, interdisciplinary team approach (i.e. care being provided by various disciplines in a coordinated fashion) with   Physician (Physiatrist), Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist,  Speech and Language Therapist, Neuropsychologist,  Nutritionist and a  Nurse can help reduce your symptoms directly related to the injury as well as prevent and treat common medical complications post brain injury. Not all patients will require all services and usually, a combination of these services is required for an individual patient. 


Patients can be evaluated by the Physician first to determine the nature and severity of the medical condition then come up with a treatment plan that best suits them. Depending on the patient’s symptoms and medical complications (listed above), the treatment plan will include recommending therapy services, prescribing medications and performing injections. Medications are commonly  prescribed for medical complications as well as to reduce symptoms directly related to brain injury such as arm and leg weakness, muscle tightness, speech impairment, mood and behavior issues, cognitive impairment and impaired arousal. The physician  performs injections such as tendon injections, joint injections for joint or muscle pain as well as Botulinum toxin (commonly referred as Botox injections) and nerve block injections to help relieve muscle and tendon tightness.


A Physiotherapist will  focus on various physical exercises to improve weakness in the arms and legs, improve their walking and balance and to reduce muscle tightness. They might use physical modalities to reduce pain and inflammation, muscle and tendon tightness and prevent muscle atrophy. They can also fit you with an orthosis to reduce muscle tightness as well as improve your walking and arm function.


An Occupational Therapist will focus on various physical activities required for daily living for patients with severe physical and/or cognitive impairment and also teach cognitive exercises thereby compensating the cognitive deficits.  Visual Training exercises are provided to individuals with visual impairment due to the neurological problem. The final phase of treatment involves patient training for successful community integration (education, employment etc).


A Speech Language Pathologist (commonly referred to as a Speech and Language Therapist), will evaluate the patient’s speech, communication and swallowing skills.  The treatment plan is broken down after an initial evaluation. The program will vary depending on the extent of the injury, the stage of recovery, and the individual’s particular areas of difficulty. Specific retraining and compensatory exercises are taught to improve the above skills. However, the major focus is on helping the individual gain back his/her quality of life.


A Neuropsychologist evaluates  patients  with depression and anxiety, that is commonly seen after any major  life-changing illness or injury and guides them through the process of rehabilitation  thereby improving their quality of life through motivation and counseling.  Performing an in-depth cognitive assessment and planning cognitive re-training exercises and compensatory strategies is also a major treatment aspect of a Neuropsychologist.


Malnutrition or undernourishment is a common problem in this population. For optimal recovery,  a Nutritionist recommends an appropriate intake of nutrition.


A Rehabilitation Nurse  trains patients with central nervous system injury to manage their bowel and bladder independently.  Performing and training wound care management for patients with pressure ulcers are also handled by a Rehabilitation Nurse.


Depending on the severity and chronicity (time duration since injury/illness) of the injury/illness, your recovery time may differ. Complete neurological recovery is often possible if the injury is mild to moderate. In the case of a moderate to severe injury, a complete neurological recovery may not be possible and therefore the goal will be to help you be as independent as possible and integrate you into the community despite your physical and/or cognitive limitation. If the injury is too severe, then the goal would be to improve your quality of life by helping you be as independent as possible with your day to day living, decrease pain and prevent complications.

Total knee Replacement - Some Myths and Facts!

Total knee Replacement - Some Myths and Facts!

Total knee replacement is arguably one of the most successful of Orthopaedic surgeries. The success has been documented at various scientific platforms and Journals.

 However there are still many myths in the mind of the lay person who is suffering from this crippling problem and prevents them from getting treated for the same.

  1. Myth :  Everyone suffers from Knee arthritis, I should learn to live with it.

Fact:  If the Knee pain due to arthritis is so much that is affects activities of daily life, and you find yourself refusing to participate in routine  social activities, Knee replacement could be the best option to bring back the lost zeal in your life.

  1. Myth: I am too young for this surgery

Fact :  Joint Replacement is no longer  just dependent on the age. Recent advances in materials and design have vastly extended the boundaries for joint replacement.

  1. Myth: I am too overweight for this surgery

Fact :  Surgery is not dependent on the weight,  but on the overall medical condition of the person. In fact after the surgery, the ease of movement means losing weight may become easier.

  1. Myth: I should try to postpone the surgery as much as possible.

Fact :  Severity of Knee arthritis can sometimes be so crippling  that even small daily activities like going for a walk in the garden , shopping at the market or in the mall can become unbearable. This causes a great loss in the quality of life for that person. Pulling on in such circumstances is not only physically more challenging but may cause emotional issues and depression. In such circumstances joint replacement can be a life changing surgery

Myths And Facts About Piles!

Myths And Facts About Piles!

Hemorrhoids, popularly called ‘piles’, refers to the swollen, inflamed tissue that accumulates in the anal canal. These tissues consist of muscles, elastic fibers, support tissues and blood vessels.

As piles is a disease with conspicuous symptoms (bloody stools, anal rashes and reddening), and extremely common (more than 75% of the population will suffer once in their lifetime), there are numerous myths surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. If you want to separate your facts from the chaff, this article will help you to do just that.

1) Myth: The probability of getting piles increases with age.

Fact: This isn’t necessarily the case. Piles is caused due to strain and pressure applied on the area of the anus. This strain can come from a variety of sources, including diseases (diarrhea), physiological conditions (constipation) and unrelated processes (pregnancy).

2) Myth: Eating hot, spicy things like green chili will increase your chances of piles or exacerbate its symptoms.

Fact: Piles occurs due to strain on the anus, more specifically on the blood vessels near that area. This happens due to the body’s blood pressure (BP) being unusually high, and not due to digestion/diet specialties.

3) Myth: Your diet has absolutely nothing to do with your piles risk.

Fact: Piles has many factors that are either directly causal or increase the risk of it substantially in a person. Among them, constipation is an ever-present entity. Therefore, a diet rich in food that fights constipation is beneficial in combating/reducing risk for piles. Such a diet comprises high fiber (skins of fruits etc.) content, high levels of hydration and low calorie/fat intake.

4) Myth: You are more likely to have piles if you are exposed to the cold.

Fact: There is no scientific evidence to support this claim, even though it has gained popularity with time. To the contrary, application of cold materials on the surface can help relieve pain and irritation related to piles. You can apply cold compresses on the surface of the buttocks to relieve itch, pain and burning sensations from the piles rashes.

5) Myth: You should not work out when you have been diagnosed with piles.

Fact: This claim is also an unfounded one, and you definitely shouldn’t freak out if you’re a fitness freak. There are only some variants of exercise that can exacerbate your piles – like if you’re lifting too-heavy weights, twisting your body, or are holding your breath while lifting weights. Apart from that, exercise also helps reduce the risk of piles by help you lose weight and facilitating smooth bowel movement.

6) Myth: Piles is a recurrent disease. Recurrence of piles is known to happen but now good painless treatment options are available.

Piles or hemorrhoids are the formation of dense tissue in the anal canal, which causes obvious and painful symptoms. However, you should not lose your sleep over piles – it is treatable and easily diagnosable.
