Are using senaitizer harmful or not?
And Which one is good for kids or  adult. please reply me.
Good or not , no comments with dust and pollution around. Wipe your hands with sanitizer of any variety but there are germs in environment affecting the health workers more than patients and attendants in clinics and hospitals. Wash hands with any soap with foam & make it a habit. Keep environment clean through other means also.

You are anemic and treatment is not iron but vitamin b12 & folic acid. Macro means large +cytic means cell = macrocytic means red blood cells are large but are normochromic (normal in color - heam color is red, given by iron to blood forming cells called rbcs) macroovalocytes means abnormal large blood cells rbcs which are not routinely present. Take b 12 & folic acid + high protein diet + vitamin c in food to correct anemia. Get tested again after 2 months.

Hello, Irregular period is usually defined as any type of bleeding that's abnormal when compared to your last few menstrual cycles. It can include everything from a late period to early bleeding, and scant bleeding to extremely heaving bleeding. For many women, this can even mean an absent period (amenorrhea) or two periods in one month (metrorrhagia). It's actually a way of your body telling you something is not right and probably your hormones (especially estrogen and progesterone) are imbalanced. Although, in most cases, they are not dangerous, but it is important to figure out what is causing the irregularity (which may require a trip to the doctor). Some common reasons for irregular periods: STRESS: Stress is the most common cause of irregular periods. Cortisol, the stress hormone, has a direct impact on how much estrogen and progesterone, two sex hormones, gets produced by the body. POOR DIET: Unhealthy eating and being overweight or underweight can cause irregular periods. In order for a woman to maintain a regular cycle, her body fat percentage needs to be at least 17-22 percent. EXCESSIVE EXERCISE: Excessive exercising (or even lack of it) and drastic weight changes can decrease the body fat, being underweight can offset your hormone levels, thus contributing to irregular periods. BIRTH CONTROL PILLS: When some women stop taking the pill, their periods may take one to three months to return to normal. And this can also reveal an underlying hormonal problem that was masked by taking the birth control pills. PCOS: Polycystic ovary syndrome causes cysts to form on the ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation. In fact, PCOS is far more complicated than a missed period. Talk to your doctor about this condition. THYROID: Thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, can cause widespread symptoms like changes in estrogen and cortisol hormones and missed periods. OTHER REASONS: Some other reasons include perimenopause, menopause, pregnancy, certain medications you might be taking due to other health issues, and breastfeeding. Some home remedies you can try to treat irregular period problem: REDUCE STRESS: Breathe away stress by doing yoga and breathing exercises and meditation in the morning. Also, do kapalbhati and anulom-vilom pranayama for 15 mins each. CHASTE BERRY: The best known hormone balancing herb for women, Chaste berry helps to regulate the female gynecological system. It works by normalizing the secretions of the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which then appropriately signal to balance the endocrine system. Note – This herb is not recommended if you are taking any fertility drug. It should not be consumed during pregnancy. SHATAVARI: Shatavari is also known to restore the balance of hormones in women. Mix it with equal amount of Ashwagandha and take 1 teaspoon with warm milk at night daily. OTHER HERBS: Some other herbs you can try to regain healthy menstruation: Holy basil (Tulsi), Black cohosh, licorice (Mulethi) root, turmeric, and Evening primerose oil. (If you are on medications, always consult your doctor first). DIETARY CHANGES: Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice. Add ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, green (unripe) papaya, sesame seeds (with Jaggery), Apple Cider Vinegar and wheat grass to your diet. Also eat other seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most women return to healthy menstruation cycle following these remedies. However, if you don’t benefit from the above, you should see your gynaecologist immediately.

Hi. After 4th month of my first delivery for the first time I suffered from sever lower abdominal pain and body pain during periods. Can you suggest any pain killer for it.

DGO, MBBS

Post delivery when the menstrual cycles start, the cycles can be anovulatory in the beginning which can make the cycles long, heavy and sometimes painful. If the cycles continue to be the same way, consult a gynaecologist and get yourself treated.

We have to see how low the placenta is. In most cases, low lying placenta needs cesarean but that too with caution as it needs blood transfusion during cesar for risk of bleeding

You need to get a Urine RE and C/S and Complete blood count done as there is a possibility of infection. Also ideally you need to get a Gynaecological examination done to exclude any vaginal infection or abcess.

If pain does not decrease the cyst can be removed by Key hole surgery. If there is pain relief then reassess after 3 months.

Hi I have all symptoms of yeast infection. It causes itching in the vagina and sometimes causes pain or burning when I urinate or have sex. I also have a thick, clumpy, white discharge that has no odor and looks a little like cottage cheese from last 4-5 days. I had only white discharge like water from my vagina earlier for many years. Should I be worried? Nand what should I do plz?

DGO
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Your symptoms are suggestive of candidiasis as your discharge is cheesy odourless and you have itching burning soreness in vaginal area .You need oral antifungal as well as vaginal antifungal for local action. Since in the past too you have been having watery discharge it would be good for you getting a vaginal swab done as well.

How Yoga and Naturopathy helps manage Lifestyle diseases?

Vedic Namaskar. Mai Dr. Suresh Gujjar. Naturopathy and Yog Department, Vedic Gram. Mai aaj aap ko bata raha hun aaj ki bhaag daud wali zindagi mein jo rogo se hum garshit ho rahe hai un rogo se bachaw k liye Yog aur Naturopathy ka kya mehetwa hai. Yog aur Naturopathy k dwara hum uss lifestyle jo humari kharab ho chuki hai, jo jewan chariya hum bekar kar chuke hai un sab se bahar aane k liye, un bimariyo se bahar aane k liye Yog aur Naturopathy aap ka kaise help karta hai. Sabse pehle aaj subah uthne se leke shaam ko sone tak hazaro aise kaam rehte hai jinka sharirik aur mansik dabaw humare upar rehta hai.

Aaj 3 saal se lekar k 100 saal ka jo baccha ho yuwa ho ya wridh ho sabhi tanaw wali zindagi jee rahe hai. 5 saal ka baccha hua nahi ki usko bag leke school jana hai, shaam ko tution karna hai fir video game ya TV se uski puri lifestyle, fir raat ko late se khaana, late se sona hai, subah late uthna hai yehi aaj lifestyle humari ho gayi hai. Air pollution, jaise hi hum bahar nikalte hai puri pollution hi pollution nazar aati hai, in sab se jo rog ho rahe hai, sabse zyada diabetes, madhumeye k rogi bohot hi zyada aaj aap k samne dikhai dete hai. High blood pressure, mansik tanaw, pet ki samasyayein jo fast food k karan ho rahi hai, in sab mein naturopathy kya kam karta hai, yog kya kam karta hai, kaise un chiz ko, un bimariyo ko hum dur kar sakte hai.

To Naturopathy kya karta hai, Naturopathy ka matlab hai prakritik. Humara sharir jo hai unhi 5 tathwo se bani hai jinse prakriti bani hai- aakash, wayu, aagni, jal aur prithvi. Ye 5 mahabhut. Inhi panch mahabhuto se humara sharir bana hai. Prakriti swayam mein ek chikitsak hai, agar hum prakriti k sath chalte hai to bade se bade asadhya rog ko bhi hum prakritik chikitsa k dwara, yog k dwara thik kar sakte hai. Lekin aaj hum allopathy chikitsa k taraf, fasat result mile islye hum injection, tablets inhi pe zyada wishwas karte hai. Lekin ye sab kya karte hai, humari bimari ko thik karne k bajai inhe daba rahi hai, aur jo bimari dabti hai, koi bhi chiz ho, agar dharti k niche bhi koi chiz dabti hai koi hulchal hoti hai to wo jwalamukhi k roop mein bahar nikalta hai. Aise hi humare sharir k andar jo toxins ikkatthe ho jaate hai to wo kisi na kisi rog k roop mein, kisi badi bimari k roop mein, shuruwat mein phode phunsi ityadi k roop mein bahar nikalne lagte hai ya kabz ya ulti waman in chizo k dara bahar nikalne lagte hai. Aur agar kaafi lamba procedure ho jaata hai to cancer, asthma aisi chize bhi dheere dheere ban jaati hai. To in chizo ko hum prakritik chikitsa k sath kaise thik kar sakte hai.

Wayu chikitsa mein upwas chikitsa jo Naturopathy mein bataya gaya hai, upwas ek bohot hi acchi ousadhi hai jaise ki pashuye bimar hone pe apna khaana aur peena chor dete hai waise hi agar insaan bimar hone pe upwas chikitsa ka sahara le leta hai to bagair kisi problem k aapne bimari ko thik kar sakta hai. Aise hi hum jal chikitsa mein aate hai, jal k visesh prayog hai. Aaj hum jaldi jaldi khaade hoke paani peete hai, bootle se paani pete hai, bhagte huye paani pete hai, eksath adhik paani pete hai. Prakritik roop se bhi kaha gaya hai k upar waale ne humein 32 daant diye hai, jo khaana khaate hai jaldi nahi khaa pa rahe hai, fast food kha rahe hai. 32 daant ka matlab hai k pratyek grass ko aap ek ek bar chabao to wo bilkul liquid form mein aa jayega aur kaha gaya hai k paani ko khaane k tarah piyo aur khaane ko paani k tarah to aap k pet ki koi bhi problem nahi hogi. Agar aap ki lifestyle sahi hai, raat ko sahi time pe soote hai to na hi aap o sharirik aur mansik wikar honge na hi tanaw wysat honge.

Isme agar hum yog ka bhi sahara lete hai, to yog jiske baare main aaj kal bohot hi jankari ho gayi hai lekin aaj bhi logo ko yog k andar jo hai vo ab bhi logo ko nahi pata. Yog ka matlab sharir ko todna phodna yehi lagta hai. Lekin yog to ek bohot hi baada samundar hai uska ek chota sa hissa yoga hai. Humne sharir ko moda to hum yoga karte hai. Yog ka matlab hai aap apne aap ko sharirik, mansik aur adhyatmik roop se swasth rakhne ki jo kriya karte hai use yog kehte hai. Aap ne ek do aasan kar liye aur yog ho gaya nahi ye galat hai. Yog ka matlab wahi hai k aap aatma ko parmatma se milaye.

Lekin aaj hum sanskarik yug mein rahte hai jaha aatma o parmatma se milane ka matlab aap apne aap ko swasth kaise rakh paate hai. Sharirik, mansik aur adhyatmik level pe aap apna balance kaise bana k rakh paate hai, isilye yog k andar visesh aasana, aasana k andar hum pranayam, dhyaan, in 3 chizo ko bhi agar hum apnaate hai to hum bohot chizo se mukt ho sakte hai, bohot se wikar dur kar sakte hai. Agar hum sharir k andar bina koi dawai liye bhi, bohot se aisi chize hai jaise nariyog, humare naari k surya aur chandan, aap bohot se bimaari ko surya aur chandan chalakar bhi thik kar sakte hai.

Iski agar aap ko adhik jankaari chahiye to aap Vedic Gram me aa kar humse sampark kar sakte hai ya Librate pe humse sampark kar sakte hai.

Please note you can repeat your husband's semen analysis from another lab also, if that report also says azoospermia, then you have to go for surgical extraction of sperms (TESA/ PESA. Regarding Pcod it is sometimes genetic also, so do not worry. With Pcos there is anovulation or delayed anovulation so we need to give medicines for ovulation. Have you done your hormonal tests like Serum prolactin, Serum TSH and Serum Fasting Insulin Levels.

You will definitely get pregnant. Pcod is not an uncurable disease. As soon as your periods become regular, your chances of pregnancy are increased.
