Benefits of Dogs and Children Growing Up Together!


1. Constant Companionship

Although childhood isn't always easy, having a pet provides constant companionship through the ups and downs. Dogs can be a great source of comfort for kids — even when they're coming to grips with difficult life lessons. Whenever kids feel sad, angry, or afraid, they can always turn to their pet. Petting and cuddling dogs has also been shown to relieve stress and help people relax.

2. A More Active Lifestyle

Caring for a dog also encourages a more active lifestyle. In fact, a recent study showed that kids with dogs exercise eleven minutes a day more than their non-dog owning peers. That might not sound like a lot, but over a week or month, it really adds up. Many dogs require daily walks or runs and plenty of play time. Those adorable puppy eyes they give you are sure to motivate you — even when you're not feeling up to it.

3. Learning Responsibility

Having a pet is a great way to teach responsibility to kids. Making sure that the family dog has food and water gives children a first glimpse of accountability and obligation. Children also learn empathy and compassion by caring for their pet, while developing a higher level of self-esteem by taking care of their pet-owning responsibilities.

4. Health Is Wealth

Recent studies have found that babies raised in close contact with a pet get sick less often in their first year of life, meaning fewer visits to the doctor's office. Exposure to pet dander and the microbes that pets carry into the home from the outdoors is suggested to improve babies' developing immune systems. Research has also found that children who grow up with dogs experience a reduced risk of allergies.

5. Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of dogs in early childhood is simply that they make children happy! Interaction with animals has been proven to raise levels of serotonin and dopamine, which are the chemical building blocks of positive feelings. All science aside, playing and interacting with dogs is just plain fun — and it's bound to brighten any kid's day.

Bachon ki Khansi ka ilaj

बहुत आम पर हालत बिगाड़ देने वाली आम बीमारियों में से एक है खांसी। खांसी अगर गम्भीर रूप में हो जाए तो हेल्दी हेल्दी व्यक्ति भी थक हार कर सुस्त पड़ जाता है। शरीर का हर हिस्सा दर्द महसूस करने लगता है क्योंकि खांसते समय इसका असर केवल गले पर ही नही बल्कि सीना पेट हाथ पैर सब पर इफ़ेक्ट पड़ता है। बड़े तो फिर भी अपनी तकलीफ बयान कर भी लेते हैं और उसका इलाज भी कर लेते हैं पर सोचने की बात है कि बच्चों को खांसी होने पर उनका क्या हाल होता होगा। क्योंकि ना वो बता पाते हैं ना खुदसे अपनी मदद कर सकते हैं। इसलिए जरूरी है कि हमें पूरी जानकारी हो बच्चों को होने वाली खांसी की वजह और उसके इलाज के लिए घरेलू नुस्खों के बारे में।

दरसलश्लेम यानी म्यूकसको बाहर निकालने की कोशिश में या फिर गले और वायु मार्ग में सूजन होनेकी वजह से शिशु खांसता है।खांसी की वजह बहुत सी होती हैं, मगर आमतौर पर यह सर्दी-जुकाम या फ्लू का लक्षण होता है। ऐसे में हम अक्सर दवाओं का सहारा लेते हैं पर आपको यह बात पता होनी चाहिए कि सर्दी, जुकाम, खांसी जैसी बीमारियों में दवा देने की बजाय होम रेमेडीज अपनानी चाहिए। क्योंकि इन बीमारियों का नेचुरल तरीके से इलाज करना जितना बेहतर होता है उतना ही अंग्रेजी दवाओं से इलाज करना नेगेटिव साइड इफ़ेक्ट से भरपूर। तो आइए आज हम जानेंगे शिशुओं को होने वाली खांसी कारण और इससे राहत दिलाने वाले कुछ घरेलू नुस्खे।

खांसी के कारण

1. सर्दी-जुकाम
अगर आपके शिशु को सर्दी-जुकाम की वजह से खांसी हो रही हो, तो उसे साथ में बंद नाक, बहती नाक, गले में खारिश, आंखों में पानी और बुखार जैसे लक्षण भी हो सकते हैं। जुकाम की वजह से बनने वाले अतिरिक्त श्लेम को निकालने के लिए आपका शिशु खांसता है।

2. फ्लू
फ्लू के लक्षण सर्दी-जुकाम की तरह ही लग सकते हैं। अगर, आपके शिशु को फ्लू हो, तो उसे बुखार, नाक बहना और कई बार दस्त (डायरिया) या उल्टी भी हो सकती है। मगर फ्लू की वजह से होने वाली खांसी, जुकाम वाली खांसी से अलग होगी। यह बलगम वाली खांसी की बजाय सूखी खांसी होगी। इसका मतलब यह है कि आपका शिशु खांसी के साथ काफी कम बलगम निकाल रहा होगा।

3. क्रूप
अगर शिशु को क्रूप हो, तो उसे वायु मार्ग में सूजने होने की वजह से खांसी होगी। शिशुओं का वायु मार्ग काफी संकरा होता है और आपसे काफी छोटा होता है। इसलिए इनमें सूजन होने पर शिशु के लिए सांस लेना मुश्किल हो जाता है। छह माह और तीन साल के बीच के बच्चों को क्रूप होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। क्रूप खांसी मे भौंकने जैसी आवाज निकलती है। जो कि अक्सर रात में शुरु होती है।

4. काली खांसी 
काली खांसी या कुक्कर खांसी एक बैक्टिरियल इंफेक्शनहै। यह काफी संक्रामक होती है। काली खांसी में बहुत ज्यादा और खुश्क खांसी होती है। इसमें बहुत सारा श्लेम निकलता है और खांसते समय सांस लेते हुए उच्च स्वर या ध्वनि निकलती है।

5. दमा
शिशु को दमा की वजह से भी खांसी हो सकती है। अस्थमा से ग्रस्त शिशु की सांस लेते व छोड़ते समय श्वास फूलती है। उनकी छाती भी कस जाती है और सांस की कमी होने लगती है।

6. तपेदिक 
लगातार रहने वाली खांसी टी.बी. का लक्षण हो सकता है। टी.बी. की खांसी दो सप्ताह से ज्यादा जारी रहती है। टी.बी. से ग्रस्त शिशु की खांसी में खून आ सकता है, उसे सांस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है और भूख लगना कम हो सकती है। शिशु को बुखार भी हो सकता है।

बच्चों की खांसी के उपचार के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे 

1. गर्म तरल चीजें पिलाएं
बच्चे को ठंडे की बजाय गर्म पानी और बाकी चीज भी गर्म तासीर वाली ही पिलाएं जिससे गले की सूजन को आराम मिलेगा।

2. वाष्पित्र या वेपोरब का इस्तेमाल करें
वेपोरब २ साल के बच्चे को भी खॉँसी में तेजी से राहत देता है। इस जादुई रगड़ में मेन्थॉल, कपूर और नीलगिरी जैसी सामग्री हैंबच्चे को आराम दिलाती है।

3. सिर ऊंचा कर के सुलाएं
बलगम नाक से गले में टपक सकता है, जिसके परिणाम में गंभीर खाँसी हो सकती है। शरीर की ऐसी मुद्रा बहाव को प्रेरित कर सकती है। इसलिए बच्चे को उंचे स्थान पर सिर रखकर सोने से बहाव न होने में मदद होगी।

4. हल्दी की मदद लें
गर्म दूध के साथ आधी चम्मच हल्दी पाउडर मिलाए और बेहतर राहत पाने के इस मिश्रण को गरम ही पिलाएं। या फिरगर्म पानीमें एक चुटकी हल्दी पाउडर और नमक मिलाकर बच्चे से गरारा करवाने की कोशिश करें।

5. शहद अपनाएं
रात के समय सूखी खांसी से राहत के लिए बच्चे को सुलाने के पहलेउसे गर्म दूध में मिलाकर पिलाएं।

6. अदरक
एक कप पानी में अदरक के टुकड़ों को ड़ाल कर इस मिश्रण को आधि मात्रा होने तक उबालकर छान के इसमे एक चम्मच शहद डालकर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

7. तुलसी
तुलसी के पत्तों का रस निकाल कर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

8. अंगूर का जादू
अंगूर प्राकृतिक कफोत्सारक हैं और वे आपके फेफड़ों से कफ निकाल देते हैं। इन फलों के रस में शहद मिलाए और इस रसको बच्चे सोने से पहले थोड़ा सा पिलाएं।

9. एलोवेरा
बड़ों की खांसी हो या बच्चे की खांसी एलोवेरा का रस और शहद के मिश्रण काफी असरदार नुस्खा है।

What is the ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is a special high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that helps to control seizures in some people with epilepsy. It is prescribed by a physician and carefully monitored by a dietitian. It is stricter than the modified Atkins diet, requiring careful measurements of calories, fluids, and proteins.
The name ketogenic means that it produces ketones in the body (keto = ketone, genic = producing). Ketones are formed when the body uses fat for its source of energy.
Usually the body uses carbohydrates (such as sugar, bread, pasta) for its fuel, but because the ketogenic diet is very low in carbohydrates, fats become the primary fuel instead.
Ketones are not dangerous. They can be detected in the urine, blood, and breath. Ketones are one of the more likely mechanisms of action of the diet; with higher ketone levels often leading to improved seizure control. However, there are many other theories for why the diet will work.

Attention Deficit Disorders

CHILD PSYCHIATRY: Attention Deficit Disorders

Attention deficit disorder is characterized by the main features of distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. It occurs in both children and adults, and interferes with the person's ability to function normally in their day-to-day activities, such as work, school, and at home. While we do not yet fully understand the causes behind these problems, there are many readily available and effective treatments for attention deficit problems.
Diagnosing this disorder can be difficult since it is common for many people to have some of the symptoms of this disorder to some degree, such as difficulty paying attention or being easily distracted. Also, some of the symptoms of ADHD can manifest as anxiety or depression. Therefore, prevalence rates for this disorder are difficult to precisely pin down. However, according to recent epidemiological statistics, approximately 4 percent of the population has ADHD. About one-half to two-thirds of children who are diagnosed will continue to have some difficulties with ADHD during their adulthood.

The diagnosis of ADHD or ADD cannot be done online. This informational resource can help you better understand these problems and give you more confidence when contacting a mental health professional for appropriate treatment.

It is normal for children to be easily distracted at various stages throughout their development for short periods of time. Most children grow out of such stages naturally on their own. Do not become alarmed if you find that you or your child may match many of the symptoms listed -- this is likely one of the most overly diagnosed mental health problems today.

In order for ADHD or ADD to be diagnosed properly, it is important that the problems to be noted happen in multiple settings, that they have been consistently observed for 6 months or longer, and that many such symptoms of lack of attention, impulsivity, or hyperactivity are easily apparent.

We have developed the information here to act as a comprehensive guide to help you better understand the symptoms, causes, and treatments for attention deficit problems, whether you're an adult or a child. We've developed this resource to help you discover more information about these problems on your own.
manifest themselves in a manner and degree that is inconsistent with the child's current developmental level. That is, the child's behavior is significantly more inattentive or hyperactive than that of his or her peers of a similar age.

Attention deficit disorder (with or without hyperactivity) is known by a cluster of co-occurring behavioral symptoms. Check to see if any of these symptoms sound familiar to you.
ADHD or ADD is characterized by a majority of the following symptoms being present in either category (inattention or hyperactivity). These symptoms need to manifest themselves in a manner and degree that is inconsistent with the child's current developmental level. That is, the child's behavior is significantly more inattentive or hyperactive than that of his or her peers of a similar age.

Symptoms of Inattention:
§ often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in schoolwork, work, or other activities
§ often has difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play activities
§ often does not seem to listen when spoken to directly
§ often does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace (not due to oppositional behavior or failure to understand instructions)
§ often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
§ often avoids, dislikes, or is reluctant to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort (such as schoolwork or homework)
§ often loses things necessary for tasks or activities (e.g., toys, school assignments, pencils, books, or tools)
§ is often easily distracted by extraneous stimuli
§ is often forgetful in daily activities
Symptoms of Hyperactivity:
§ often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat
§ often leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected
§ often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate (in adolescents or adults, may be limited to subjective feelings of restlessness)
§ often has difficulty playing or engaging in leisure activities quietly
§ is often "on the go" or often acts as if "driven by a motor"
§ often talks excessively
Symptoms of Impulsivity:
§ often blurts out answers before questions have been completed
§ often has difficulty awaiting turn
§ often interrupts or intrudes on others (e.g., butts into conversations or games)
Symptoms must have persisted for at least 6 months. Some of these symptoms need to have been present as a child, at 7 years old or younger. The symptoms also must exist in at least two separate settings (for example, at school and at home). The symptoms should be creating significant impairment in social, academic or occupational functioning or relationships.
There are three variations in which this disorder is diagnosed.
§ Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Combined Type: when both criteria for A1 and A2 are met for the past 6 months.
§ Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Predominantly Inattentive Type: when criterion A1 is met but Criterion A2 is not met for the past 6 months.
§ Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type: when criterion A2 is met but criterion A1 is not met for the past 6 months.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

General Physician, Mumbai
Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly.
