Home Remedies For Bad Breath in Hindi

क्या आप सांसों की बदबू से पीड़ित हैं? बुरा सांस, जिसे हलिटोसिस भी कहा जाता है, शर्मनाक है और आपके आत्मविश्वास के स्तर को गिरा सकता है। बुरा सांस का मुख्य कारण वे जीवाणु हैं जो आपकी जीभ के पीछे या दांतों के बीच बढ़ते हैं। हालांकि, खराब श्वास के कई अन्य कारण होते हैं जैसे कि दाँत कैविटी, मसूढ़े की बीमारी, खराब मौखिक स्वच्छता, लेपित जीभ, धूम्रपान, शुष्क मुंह आदि। पीड़ादायक गला या साइनसाइटिस जैसे संक्रमण, या आंत्र विकार, जैसे कि हृद्दाह, अल्सर, और लैक्टोज असहिष्णुता, भी बुरा सांस पैदा कर सकता है।
कई लोगों के लिए, टकसाल टॉफ़ी या गम का एक टुकड़ा चबाना, एक तीव्र उपाय है, क्योंकि यह समस्या को छुपा देता है। लेकिन बुरा सांस को नियंत्रित करने के लिए अच्छा मौखिक स्वास्थ्य बनाए रखना आवश्यक है। 
 

सांसों की दुर्गन्ध के इलाज के घरेलू नुस्खे
खराब सांस के लिए घरेलू उपचार समय के साथ आपके मौखिक स्वच्छता में बड़ा अंतर कर सकते हैं। खराब सांस के लिए कुछ घरेलू उपाय यहां दिए गए हैं:
1. सौंफ:
सौंफ़ एक उत्कृष्ट मुंह के फ्रेशनर के रूप में कार्य करता है और खराब सांस को नियंत्रित करने में मदद करता है। इसमें रोगाणुरोधी गुण भी होते हैं जो मुंह में बैक्टीरिया से लड़ते हैं। अपने श्वास को ताज़ा करने और लार के उत्पादन को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए धीरे-धीरे सौंफ चबाएँ। आप सौंफ की चाय भी पी सकते हैं।
2. दालचीनी:
दालचीनी में सीनामिक एल्डिहाइड होता है, एक आवश्यक तेल जो न केवल बुरा सांस को कवर करता है बल्कि आपके मुंह में बैक्टीरिया की मात्रा भी कम करता है। एक कप पानी में दालचीनी पाउडर के एक चम्मच को उबाल लें। समाधान को दबाएं और इसे अपने सांस को ताज़ा करने के लिए मुंह के कुल्ला के रूप में उपयोग करें। 
3. मेथी:
मेथी की चाय बेहद प्रभावी होती है जब श्वसन संक्रमण के कारण बुरा सांस होता है। 
4. लौंग:
बस अपने मुंह में कुछ लौंग को दबाएं और उन्हें अपने सांस को ताज़ा करने के लिए अच्छी तरह चबाएं। लौंग में जीवाणुरोधी गुण होते हैं जो खराब सांस से छुटकारा पाने में बहुत सहायक होते हैं। आप लौंग वाली चाय भी पी सकते हैं।
5. अजमोद:
अजमोद न केवल पाचन आसान बनाता है, बल्कि यह मुंह से दुर्गंध के लिए एक अच्छा घरेलु उपचार भी है। अजमोद में क्लोरोफिल होता है जो कि खराब सांस को बेअसर करने में मदद कर सकता है। ताजी पत्तियों को सीधे चबाएं या उन्हें अपने भोजन पर एक गार्निश के रूप में जोड़ें। 
6. नींबू का रस:
नींबू में अम्लीय सामग्री आपके मुंह में बैक्टीरिया का विकास रोकती है। बस एक कप पानी में नींबू के रस का एक बड़ा चमचा मिलाएं और इसके साथ कुल्ला करें। आप इसमे थोड़ा सा नमक जोड़ कर भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं। 
वैकल्पिक रूप से, आप पेस्ट बनाने के लिए 1 चम्मच नींबू का रस और 1-2 बड़े चम्मच सादा दही मिश्रण कर सकते हैं। अपने दांतों पर मिश्रण को लागू करें, इसे लगभग 5 मिनट तक छोड़ दें और फिर कुल्ला करें।
7. सेब का सिरका:
पीएच संतुलन प्रभाव के कारण, सेब का सिरका खराब सांस के लिए एक अद्भुत उपाय है। सेब के सिरके के 1-2 बड़े चम्मच और ठंडे पानी का गिलास मिलाएं, और इसे एक माउथवॉश के रूप में प्रयोग करें। 
आप एक गिलास पानी में कच्चे सेब के सिरके का एक बड़ा चमचा मिलाकर अपने भोजन खाने से पहले भी पी सकते हैं।
8. बेकिंग सोडा:
बेकिंग सोडा एक प्राकृतिक एंटैसिड है। यह मुंह में पीएच स्तर को संतुलित करता है और जीवाणुओं से लड़ता है। एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा और आधा चम्मच नींबू का रस मिलाएं, और अपने दांतों पर इस पेस्ट को रगड़ें। इसे एक मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें और फिर अपने मुंह को स्वच्छ पानी से धो लें।
9. चाय के पेड़ का तेल:
चाय के पेड़ के तेल में एंटीसेप्टिक गुण हैं और आपके मुंह के लिए एक शक्तिशाली निस्संक्रामक के रूप में कार्य करता है। गुनगुने पानी के एक गिलास में एक या दो बूंद चाय के पेड़ का तेल जोड़ें और इससे कुल्ला कर लें।

What is Premature Ejaculation?

What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature (early) ejaculation—also referred to as rapid ejaculation; also called as early discharge. Premature Ejaculation Treatment in Delhi (PE) is the most common type of sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40 years and seen across all age groups. In elderly men (60 years) erectile dysfunction is more common. A study conducted by the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that this condition is almost equally prevalent in sexually active men of all age groups. If a man experiences uncontrollable ejaculation (discharge of semen from your penis) either before or shortly after sexual penetration (usually within 1-2 minutes of penetration), he may be suffering from PE. The Mayo clinic at the United States defines PE as a condition in which a man “always or nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration."

I.m feeling weakness. And I am suffering from nightfall even when I am nt having any sex related thoughts.
To Control Night Fall: Night fall or wet dreams is a very common occurrence among men, especially among adolescents. This condition is characterized by involuntary ejaculation during sleep in the night or in the early hours of the morning. The problem of night fall can be very frustrating for young men because most of the times they don’t understand the reason for it and also because it is a very embarrassing thing to discuss with not only their parents but also with their peers. The frequency of these nocturnal emissions varies from person to person, most men only experience this condition in their adolescent years but few may suffer from it all their lives. So as you can see this condition is very common and nothing really to worry about except in very few cases where it is very frequent spread over a long period of time. Studies have shown that using testosterone based drugs can increase nocturnal emissions, so try avoiding these if you suffer from nightfall. Here are a few more things that you can try to limit it. 1. Should start jogging or brisk walking for at least 30 minutes every day. 2. Should avoid consumption of any liquid for at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 3. Should go for urination just before going to bed. 4. Should avoid watching porn or erotic chats etc. 5. Start listening to soothing music which gives peace of mind and gives soothing effects like the meditation gives. 6. Should start reading good books at the time to keep the brain relaxed for a sound sleep. 7. If night fall happens then they should not worry about this, because if you keep on thinking about nightfall or have the fear of night fall at the time of sleeping then there more chances to have it reoccur. 8. Should avoid constipation because an upset digestive system also sometimes causes this condition. 9. If the person is having the habit of taking milk at night then they should take milk in the evening instead of at night. 10. Kegel exercise also helps control Night Fall. 11. Do yoga and meditation. Remember to talk to your doctor or a qualified professional like a doctor before you start or stop your medications and never self-medicate. There is nothing to be embarrassed about if you suffer from this problem as it is a normal physiological phenomenon.

Hello- Its not a proper approach towards ED. Ed can be effectively cured with the help of medications. Venous leakage occurs due to improper functionality of valves of the vein, which allows the back flow of blood thus making an erection weak and unsustainable. There are many effective herbs in ayurveda (Gota k. Maca etc.) which can improve the venous functionality and thus restore its normal functioning. I recommend you to go for ayurvedic treatment. I assure you can have a normal and a healthy erection with few weeks of medications and can see the changes in your Doppler reports too after the course. Good luck.

These pills could have their own side-effects. U may however try the following for better performance- I would firstly suggest you to check whether you get anxious when you are engaged in any kind of sexual act. If yes, then you need to engage in some form of relaxation or yoga, to relieve years symptoms. Secondly, engaging more in oral sex, without touching each others' genitals also helps in setting up the relaxation mode.

First of all make it very clear that night fall is normal. It may happens occasionally. But if it happens more often and disturb your life, it can be brought under control effectivly with the help of medicines. It doesn't affect or decrease sperms or semen at all. No homemade remedies or food or oil or self made medicines (claimed by so called doctors) can stop it. No protein is lost from the body with semen or sperms through night fall. If you have occasional night fall it's fine nothing to worry. If frequency is more, you can contact privately for planning of treatment.

Brown Rice Vs Plain Rice - Which One Should You Be Eating?

Over the years, a sizeable number of people have expressed their affinity for brown rice as the healthier alternative to plain rice. Doctors are growingly recommending brown rice to all those keen on losing kilos or keeping type 2 diabetes in arrest. Brown rice essentially undergoes less of processing compared to white rice, hence it retains all the essential nutrients. Brown rice contains the side hull and bran, consequently, it helps in replenishing the crucial body nutrients like proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium. The growing popularity of brown rice not only stems from its nutritive values but also from the myriad healthy diet options that revolve around it. Unlike white rice, brown rice does not require artificial fortifications like synthetic vitamins in order to conform to the required standards of FDA. Brown rice enables you to enjoy the health benefits without compromising on the taste of rice. Brown rice is advantageous to not just the fitness fanatics, but is also the preferred meal for those with specialized dietary preferences like vegans. Some of the obverse rationale for brown rice may be listed as follows.

1. Controls insulin spikes
Brown rice has extremely low glycemic rating because of which the blood sugar levels in our body can be adequately controlled. While plain rice enhances the risk of developing diabetes, brown rice goes a long way in nullifying the glucose fluctuations in our body.

2. High in fiber
Brown rice is one of the most important sources of essential body fibers. It helps in preventing colon cancer by supplying the necessary fibers and it also detoxifies the colon walls by eliminating the cancer causing substances from the body.

3. Promotes weight loss
Brown rice regulates the bowel movements and thereby stimulates better metabolism. It is also considered to be one of the most wholesome dietary supplements because it remains a whole grain, unlike plain rice. Therefore, it is one of the most opted for food items for those wishing to lose the extra kilos.

4. Rich in salts and naturally occurring oils
Brown rice is rich in body salts like selenium and manganese which nourish your nervous and reproductive systems, thereby reducing the occurrence of diseases like cancer, arthritis and other cardiovascular syndromes.

5. Ideal as baby food
Given that brown rice is replete in necessary body fibers and health boosting nutrients, it is ideal for baby food because it promotes fast growth in babies and also averts any nutrition deficiency diseases. It also protects the baby from any synthetic vitamins that emerge from the consumption of white rice.

Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

The heart is a muscular organ that helps to pump blood through the circulatory system by periodic contractions and relaxations. The heart is one of the most important organs of the body so much so that a single cardiac arrest or a heart attack can lead to fatal consequences. Even so, a heart attack is one of the most leading causes of death in the country. But there are some earlier symptoms that could alert you ahead of time. The following are signs of an unhealthy heart:

1. Sexual problems - Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most predictable reasons for cardiovascular conditions. Today, patients who are diagnosed with ED are also considered as cardiovascular patients. This is because the heart is supposedly not able to pump enough blood to the genital area. In case of women, reduced blood flow can hamper arousal and delay orgasms.

2. Snoring and sleep apneaIf one snores loudly enough to prevent their partner's from sleeping or resort to using earplugs, one may be at a risk of having a weak heart. Restricted breathing during sleep is connected with a host of cardiovascular diseases. Sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops for a brief span of time, is linked with higher cardiovascular risks.

3. Swollen, sore and bleeding gumsSwollen and bleeding gums are not only symptoms of dental conditions but also of cardiovascular difficulties. Medical experts believe poor circulation of blood arises due to underlying heart conditions. Recent studies are focusing on bacteria that are believed to cause gum disease as well as plaque inside the arteries of the heart.

4. Heart Arrhythmia - Irregular heartbeat or heart arrhythmia is a common sign of a weak heart. It is characterized by both fast and slow beating of the heart. Restricted blood flow to the heart strains the electrical signals that maintain the normal beating of the heart. This is one of the common causes of coronary artery diseases.

5. Chest painOne of the most apparent signs of coronary artery diseases is chest pain. The cause of the sharp, clutching pain in your chest can be build-up of plaque in the arteries, which could lead to fatal consequences.

Yes seems you have PE. Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

I am 36 years old I am suffering from chicken pox since last three days, what potency of verolinium I have to take.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
I am 36 years old I am suffering from chicken pox since last three days, what potency of verolinium I have to take.
Chickenpox is caused by the Varicella Zoster Virus, which is from the family of herpes viruses. The same virus causes Herpes Zoster in adults. It spreads through the respiratory tract which includes mucous membranes of the mouth and the nose. It is an airborne disease and spreads through tiny droplets in the air. These droplets containing the virus come from cough or sneeze of an infected person. It can also spread through contact with the blisters of an infected person. A person can spread the virus even before he himself has developed the full fledged infection. This can happen for a day or two prior to developing the rash. The contagious period remains well through the time when the person has rash till the time all the blisters have formed crusts. There is a prodromal period of about 14-16 days from the infection to the appearance of the symptoms. This means that if someone is infected today, he or she will start getting the symptoms around two weeks after the exposure. One is at a higher risk of getting chickenpox if one has never had it before and also if one has not been vaccinated against it. The most important thing to take care is that one should try to avoid all contact with any infected person. The virus spreads through air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Therefore it is important that one should not be too close to any person who is infected. Any person who is infected should be isolated to the maximum extent possible so that others do not come into contact. Coming into direct contact with the blisters should be strictly avoided. Using or touching clothes or towels of an infected person needs to be completely avoided. The contagious period starts a day or two before a person starts showing the symptoms of the disease and lasts till the eruptions turn into scabs. There are many homeopathic remedies which can help in the treatment of chickenpox. As mentioned earlier, this is a viral infection and allopathic medicines are hardly able to treat this. Homeopathic medicines are very effective in the treatment of chickenpox just like they are effective in the treatment of other viral infections. Homeopathic remedies like Antim Crudum, Dulcamara, Rhus Tox and Merc Sol are very effective in the treatment of Chickenpox. Another little known fact is that Homeopathic medicines are also good prophylactics. This means that they can help prevent you from contracting chickenpox. Oranges and other citrus fruits are excellent for the immune system. It is advisable to have one glass of orange juice daily. One important point to remember is that you should stay away from additives in juices. Natural fruit and vegetable juices are good for you at this time. Fresh vegetables and raw fruits are recommended as well. Herbal teas such as cinnamon, basil and chamomile are good too. Other foods that will help are carrots, cashew nuts, tofu, walnut, egg, ginger, garlic, beetroot, and blueberry and so on. It is also advisable to consume raw organic fruits and vegetables. Foods which contain a lot of water are recommended as well since the body can easily digest such foods and process the nutrients in them. Cucumber, tomatoes, spinach watermelon, kiwi, sprouts, and so on fall into this category of water rich foods. Foods To Avoid Chicken pox food to avoid includes dairy products, meats, bread or any other kind of heavy food that is difficult for the body to process. Stay away from processed and junk foods as well. They have little or no nutritional value to offer the body. Red meat and fried foods or other similarly prepared foods should also be avoided when following a diet to cure chicken pox. An unhealthy diet with will not help the person’s immune system to produce antibodies to fight the infection.

Liver Cirrhosis - What You Must Know About It?

Liver Cirrhosis - What You Must Know About It?

The term cirrhosis refers to liver scarring due to various diseases and conditions such as chronic alcoholism and hepatitis. Each time the liver gets injured, it tries to repair itself, resulting in the formation of the scar tissue. With the progression of cirrhosis, a number of tissues generate making the task of liver difficult. Since the liver is an important organ of the body due to its functionalities such as detoxification and nutrient generation, reduced function of liver poses a serious threat to the body.

Symptoms of liver cirrhosis:
Unfortunately, cirrhosis doesn’t portray any conspicuous symptoms that can be easily identified until the scarring has reached a level of threat. Some of the common signs and symptoms of this disease include fatigue, nausea, itchy skin, drowsiness, enlarged breasts, testicular atrophy, fluid in the abdomen, bleeding from the mouth, leg swelling, redness in palms etc.

Causes of liver cirrhosis:
There could be an array of reasons for the occurrence of liver cirrhosis. The major causes include an accumulation of fat in the liver, chronic alcoholism and chronic hepatitis. Some of the other reasons include cystic fibrosis, bile duct deformation, Wilson’s disease, hemochromatosis, schistosomiasis, continuous consumption of medicines such as methotrexate, a disease involving glycogen storage and Aalagille syndrome.

Complications involved in liver Cirrhosis:

  1. High blood pressureCirrhosis results in slow blood movement through the passage of the liver resulting in an increased pressure on the vein that is responsible for carrying blood from the intestine to the liver. This increases the blood pressure in the body.
  2. Swelling of abdomen and legs: Portal hypertension can result in accumulation of fluid in the leg and the abdomen due to the liver’s inability to producing an important protein known as the albumin.
  3. Spleen enlargement: Portal hypertension is responsible for changing the shape of the spleen. Decreased count of WBC and the platelets indicate towards portal hypertension and cirrhosis.
  4. Bleeding: Portal hypertension doesn’t let the blood flow in its normal path. It directs the blood to flow through smaller veins. The veins, in turn, swell and burst to cause a massive amount of bleeding.

Apart from these some of the other complications involve jaundice, liver cancer, infections, bone diseases and liver failure.

Diagnosis:
Liver cirrhosis doesn’t get detected easily. It is often diagnosed with a routine blood test. Some of the lab tests that can help to identify cirrhosis include blood work to check organ function of liver and kidney. Your doctor might suggest other tests such as MRI scan, CT scan or liver biopsy.

Treatment:
Treatment for the underlying cause of liver cirrhosis is done to keep the disease under control. A doctor might treat you for weight loss, alcohol dependency, complications related to hepatitis, portal hypertension and hepatic encephalopathy. For advanced cases where the liver stops functioning, a doctor might suggest a patient go for a liver transplant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

Headache is not the single sign. Nausea Vomiting along with few other common symptoms like intolerance to light sound and smell will be present in case of migraine. Best of luck.
