Effects of Smoking on Body

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Effects of Smoking on Body
  1. Heart: smoking is the biggest risk factor for all heart diseases. It accelerates the process of fat deposition in the inner walls of arteries (atherosclerosis). It increases blood pressure and heart rate. Not only these, smoking increases tendency for the blood to clot. It reduces the capacity of a person to exercise.
  2. Lungs: smoking destroys small hairs present in upper parts of airways. In normal persons these hairs protect lungs from germs, dust and other harmful particles. When this natural cleaning system is damaged germs, dust, smoke and other harmful chemicals enter lungs causing infection, cough and lung cancer. The air sacs of lungs (alveoli) get permanently damaged causing difficulty in breathing.
  3. Digestive system: smoking causes heart burn, delays healing of peptic ulcers, increases risk of crohn’s disease and formation of gall stones. It affects liver and increases chances of stomach cancer.
  4. Legs: smoking affects blood vessels of legs causing chronic pain in legs. This may further progress to cause gangrene of toes or feet.
  5. Eyes: the sensitive blood vessels of eye are easily damaged by smoking. This causes blood shot appearance of eyes and itching. In heavy smokers it may lead to degeneration and loss of eyesight. Smokers are at an increased risk of cataracts.
  6. Skin: due to smoking the skin is deprived of oxygen and it loses its texture. An average smoker looks 5 years older than his healthy non smoking counterparts. The skin loses its healthy glow and takes on a yellowish-gray cast. The more cigarettes smoked, the worse skin will look. Wrinkles start appearing very quickly as smoking affects elastic tissues of skin.
  7. Bones: it accelerates the process of osteoporosis
  8. Cancer: smoking causes cancer of lungs, larynx, oral cavity, pharynx, oesophagus and bladder. Tobacco smoke contains more than 60 substances which cause cancer. 87% lung cancer death occurs due to smoking.
  9. Reproductive system: smoking reduces fertility in both men and women.
  10. In women: smoking imbalances estrogen hormone in women. It causes dryness of vagina and reduces blood flow to genital organs. Women who smoke can get diseases of fallopian tubes and their egg production is affected. Smoking can cause abortion. It accelerates aging process and can cause early menopause.
  11. The growth of baby retards when mother smokes in pregnancy. It affects the brain development of baby and reduces iq. This happens even when mother is a passive smoker. The chances of miscarriage, premature birth and fetal death increase.
  12. In men: smoking impairs erections and can become a reason for erectile dysfunction. It also reduces sperm count and impairs sperm motility. But these are reversed after stopping smoking.

Hence quit smoking. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Take one dose of aconite 200, you will be fine gradually. Go out with friends and do not let your mind think of negative result. People come out of accidents and worst things also.

My Son is 2.5 years old. He is fine as regards to health. He has a very good intellectual capabilities, he can remember the names of all my family members, can easily recite the stories that I tell him and can also talk in a fluent manner. He also can also identify the pictures in his study book. But as and when he is growing old he is getting scared of even the things that he used to enjoy earlier like riding a swing, or he gets too much scared of the balloon or crackers. He use to hang his breath when he was less than 1.5 years, but now he has no such problem. I just want to know how I tackle this problem, I create stories where he enjoys blowing of balloons or riding swings or blowing crackers. He enjoys them. But he is still too scared of things. Me and my also use to be scared of things when we were kids. So just need idea how to tackle this.

Dear lybrate-user. Children are social creatures. They always associate things with something else which gives them scare. Here, he is afraid of sound may be because he associated the sound with some other painful or worrying experience. You have to remove that association. Stories will not help. Tip- blow a balloon or cracker and immediately offer something which the child likes. Repeat the exercise many times. Now the child will associate the noise with something pleasurable and he will not be scared. You can experiment with other things also in the same way. But before that I advise you to speak to me, regarding the swings, the child is scared because of the balance problem created by the eustachian tube. It will take time, but the child will get used to it. Don't worry. Take care.

I suffered 5 years from depression. I am getting relief from it now. I was alone and I had no idea that I am in depression. I recently came to know that I was in depression. I was lost and had no interest in anything. Somehow I regained my inner strength and happiness. But even today I don't have my self esteem and full potential as I was earlier. Please give me some suggestion.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Hello. Having mood swings and inability to control emotions can be a feature of underlying mood disorder. If such swings are worrying you and affecting your life adversely, you must consult a psychiatrist for complete evaluation and treatment. Till then, you can try deep breathing exercises or meditation. Regular exercise also boosts the mood naturally. Avoid excess of caffeine. Have plenty of water and eat a balanced diet. Take care!
