गले के Infection के लिए घरेलू उपचार

BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
गले के Infection के लिए घरेलू उपचार
1. नमक वाले पानी से कुल्ला (Salt Water Gurgle)

नमक के पानी की एंटीसेप्टिक गुण गले के Infection को कम कर सकते हैं। गर्म पानी का एक गिलास ले लो और फिर आधा चम्मच नमक डाल देना। अब, नमक के पानी के उपयोग से दिन में कई बार कुल्ला करे. कृपया ध्यान रखना की आपको पानी निगलना नहीं हैं। कुल्ला (gargling) खत्म करके आपको पानी बाहर थूकना हे. हालत में सुधार करने के लिए आप एक दिन में इस विधि में कम से कम चार बार उपयोग कर सकते हैं।

2. शहद (Honey )

शहद का जीवाणुरोधी गुण गले में खराश से आप को ठीक कर सकता हैं। यह काफी सरल है। बस गुनगुने पानी की एक कप के साथ शहद का एक या दो बड़े चम्मच मिलाएं और इसे एक दिन में कई बार पीते रहे. अगर आपको गले में खराश के साथ अच्छा महसूस नहीं हो रहा तो सोने के लिए जाने से पहले बस 1 चमच शहद ले सकते हैं।

3. नींबू (Lemon )

हा, नींबू भी गले में खराश से आप को छुटकारा दिला सकता है। आपको सिर्फ नींबू की स्लाइस , नमक और काली मिर्च की जरूरत है। नींबू के स्लाइस पर नमक और काली मिर्च छिड़के और फिर धीरे धीरे नींबू चाटना हे।
आप गर्म पानी के साथ से नींबू के रस के मिश्रण से भी कुल्ला कर सकते हैं। अगर आप चाहते हैं तो आप शहद की कुछ बूँदें भी मिला सकते हैं। नींबू, गर्म पानी और शहद के मिश्रण आपको मदद कर सकते हैं गले में खराश से छुटकारा पाने के लिए।

लहसुन खाना पकाने के लिए ही नहीं है! यह भी गले में खराश को कम करने के लिए इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। लहसुन के जीवाणुरोधी और एंटीसेप्टिक गुण आपके गले में खराश से छुटकारा पाने के लिए मदद कर सकते हैं। आपको ताजा लहसुन को टुकड़ों में कटौती करना है। यह बेहतर होगा अगर आप अपने दांतों का उपयोग कर लहसुन को टुकड़ो में विभाजित करे। यह गले में खराश के लिए जिम्मेदार जो रासायनिक तत्व allicin हे उसे मार डालेगा। आप लहसुन के तेल का भी उपयोग कर सकते हैं। बस लहसुन के तेल की कुछ बुँदे ¼ कप पानी के साथ ले लो। नियमित रूप से गले पर इसका प्रयोग करें।
कच्चे और पकाया लहसुन का सेवन करें। अगर आपको लहसुन का स्वाद अच्छा नहीं लगता तो लहसुन गोलिया भी ले सकते हे।

5. दालचीनी (Cinnamon)

दालचीनी आपके गले में खराश को कम करने में मददगार है। दालचीनी पाउडर की एक चुटकी, काली मिर्च की एक चुटकी और थोड़ा सा पानी ले लो। एक साथ तीनको मिक्स करके थोड़ी देर के लिए उबाल लें। इसमें एक चम्मच शहद की डाले। उबला हुआ मिश्रण ले लो और इसे धीरे धीरे पीते हैं। कम से कम एक सप्ताह के लिए इस उपाय को जारी रखें।

कुछ ताजा तुलसी लीजिये। उनमे से तुलसी के रस निकालके इसके साथ आधा चम्मच शहद मिलाएं और खाली पेट पर इसे पीते हैं। तुलसी शहद का रस लेने के बाद तुरंत पानी नहीं पीना हे। इस संयोजन नाक बह रही रोकने के लिए और खाँसी के लिए बहुत प्रभावी है। यह ठंड संक्रमण (Cold Infection) की वजह से गले हुई खराश को भी अच्छा कर देता हे.

8. खाद्य पदार्थों में परहेज

PCOS is a very common problem. The exact nature of the medicines given will depend on your blood test results. However in order to regularise your periods you need to start taking regular hormonal pills at least for the next 6 months. Please read my health tip on PCO. You may find it useful

Hi, I had intercourse wid my partner during my mensturation and took an ipill. Its been 2 days I have fever, severe headache, body pain. Is it because of the pill?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Possibly no. You need not have the ipill. May be you are having a viral fever. However, my advice is, never have intercourse during menstruation. Chance of developing endometriosis, a most pitiable condition in an woman's life, is more. It is not a healthy practice.

Early signs of pregnancy

For women who have a regular monthly menstrual cycle, the earliest and most reliable sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Women who are pregnant sometimes have a very light period, losing only a little blood.

Some of the other early pregnancy signs and symptoms are listed below. Every woman is different and not all women will notice all of these symptoms. 

Feeling sick during pregnancy

You may feel sick and nauseous, and/or vomit. This is commonly known as morning sickness, but it can happen at any time of the day or night. 

Around half of all pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting, and around 3 in 10 women experience nausea without vomiting. For most women who have morning sickness, the symptoms start around six weeks after their last period.

If you're being sick all the time and can't keep anything down, contact your Doctor. The pregnancy condition hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a serious condition that causes severe vomiting and needs treatment.


Feeling tired is common in pregnancy

It's common to feel tired, or even exhausted, during pregnancy, especially during the first 12 weeks or so. Hormonal changes taking place in your body at this time can make you feel tired, nauseous, emotional and upset.



Sore breasts in early pregnancy

Your breasts may become larger and feel tender, just as they might do before your period. They may also tingle. The veins may be more visible, and the nipples may darken and stand out.

Peeing more often suggests pregnancy

You may feel the need to pee (urinate) more often than usual, including during the night.

Other signs of pregnancy that you may notice are:

constipation an increased vaginal discharge without any soreness or irritation

Strange tastes, smells and cravings

During early pregnancy, you may find that your senses are heightened and that some foods or drinks you previously enjoyed become repellent. You might notice:

a strange taste in your mouth, which many women describe as metallicthat you crave new foodsthat you lose interest in certain foods or drinks that you previously enjoyed – such as tea, coffee or fatty food that you lose interest in tobacco that you have a more sensitive sense of smell than usual – for example, to the smell of food or cooking

If your pregnancy test is negative

A positive test result is almost certainly correct. A negative result is less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think that you may be pregnant, wait a week and try again, or see a Doctor.

4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted
4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted

There are several myths and misconceptions surrounding alcohol consumption. But at the heart of all such myths is the fact that alcohol consumption and its processing depends on various factors such as age, size and gender, among others. Here are some myths on alcohol consumption that do not hold true in reality.

Myth 1: Soft liquor doesn’t get you drunk

A common misconception centres on soft liquor and its alcoholic effects. Don’t assume that drinking of soft liquors like wine or beer means less alcohol content in your blood, which means lesser chances of you getting drunk. The factor that influences your intoxication levels depends not on the type of drinks you consume but on their quantity. So, whether it’s hard liquor (like gin and vodka) or soft liquor, you could still get intoxicated.

Do
It is best to set yourself limits so as to allow your body to process the alcohol.

Don’t
Drive if you have had too much of soft liquor.

Myth 2: Having food before drinking stops the absorption of alcohol

One of the most common myths around drinking alcohol is that eating food prior to drinking stops the body from absorbing the alcohol you consume. Well, this is not true. Food can only aid in delaying the effects of alcohol from setting in. Irrespective of your size, your body’s liver is capable of only handling one drink every hour. That’s why overindulging will only bring about an increase in alcohol concentration in your blood.

Do
To stave off the effects of intoxication and enjoy your glass of alcohol, try to have protein-rich foods before downing your drinks.

Don’t
Have more than one drink every hour.

Myth 3: It’s safe to drink and be on medications

False. Having alcohol while on medication can only lead to unwanted results. This is because interaction between the properties of the medicines and the alcohol brings about an increase in the drink’s alcoholic effect. Certain drugs (like cold medicine or pain killers) are known to significantly increase the intoxication effect of alcohol.

Do
Consult your doctor before consuming any kind of alcohol, in case of being on long-term medications.

Don’t
Drink when you’re on painkillers or cold medicine.

Myth 4: You can drive after an hour of having alcohol

The truth is that alcohol concentration in your body is significantly higher after 1 hour of having your drink. This is because your body begins to process the alcohol at that hour. So, driving after an hour of having alcohol is not safe.

Do
Get a cab for the ride back to your place.

Don’t
Drive if you’ve had your drink an hour ago.

Borderline Personality Disorder - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pondicherry
Borderline Personality Disorder - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

Borderline Personality Disorder is purely a personality disorder caused due to multiple factors. An individual suffering from BPD maintains unstable relationships with other people, shows inappropriate emotional reactions and possesses suicidal or self-harm tendencies. Individuals suffering from BPD may find it difficult to stay alone. They fear abandonment and loneliness. Yet they have a tendency of showing mood swings, sudden emotional outburst or anger and hostility. This prevents them from having a long lasting relationship in life.

It usually starts affecting the individual's life from early adulthood. It, however, seems to improve with age. The individuals also have distorted self-image. He or she is unclear about what they want from life or what they are in reality. Even minor incidents can trigger intense reactions in people with BPD.

Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder:

The signs of suffering from BPD are listed below:

  1. Intense and frantic effort to avoid abandonment or loneliness
  2. Unstable relationships with people and changing the attitude towards them drastically. It can change from being in immense love with each other to intense hatred.
  3. Developing paranoid thoughts and having dissociative feelings-The individual often lacks the feeling of self and suffers from identity crisis.
  4. Suicidal feelings and attempts
  5. Tendency to cause self harm or destruction by drug abuse, driving irresponsibly or be having unprotected sex
  6. Reflecting intense depression
  7. Chronic boredom
  8. Sudden anger and hostility

Causes for Borderline Personality Disorder: Borderline Personality Disorder can be caused due to multiple reasons. Usually it has been found by researchers that it occurs to individuals who have had a disturbed childhood. Complex and unpleasant happenings in the childhood may leave a deep impact on the individual's personality, which comes back as a disorder in his or her early adulthood. From mental, physical to sexual abuse in the childhood can lead to this condition in adults.

Besides, researchers have discovered recently that this illness has hereditary links. Some genes may be responsible for BPD. Improper functioning of the brain is also another factor. Especially, the portion of brain that controls emotions might not be functioning properly in co-ordination with other parts of it.

Treatment:  The treatment of BPD involves three steps- psychotherapy, medications and support from peer and family. Dialectical Behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy are used in treating the individual. There are no specific medicines to cure identity crisis, boredom and loneliness. However, other symptoms like mood swings, depression and anxiety can be treated with anti-depressants and mood stabilizers. Antipsychotic drugs are also helpful to a certain extent. In extreme cases, hospitalization may be needed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Research has suggested a relationship may exist between diet and the growth of uterine fibroids. Eating foods with a high dietary glycemic index (gi) and gl like polished white rice, white bread, french fries etc is thought to potentially promote tumor growth diet and thus may encourage uterine fibroid growth. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
