Every Man and Women dream of having long, cascading tresses but only a few have it.
Everyone dreams and wishes to have glossy locks of hair like the ones those pretty actresses and models flaunt but the only thing that stops women from getting that kind of beautiful hair is hair fall.
Hair loss takes the weight, thickness, smoothness and luster, out of your hair. It is the major stress causing stuff in every woman’s life.
But don’t worry because today I am going to give you some fantastic tips to reduce hair loss and regain your beautiful hair.
First of all, eat well, ‘well’ in the sense eat a complete meal with proteins, vitamins and all. Your hair needs nourishment just like your body, oil is not enough; you have to make sure that your hair is getting all the nutrition it needs to grow.
Cover your hair with a scarf or a hat when you go out. Pollution will destroy the smoothness and luster of your hair.
Nothing will fix your hair like a hot oil massage. Massage helps to increase blood circulation and the better the circulation, the better nourishment for your hair, which will, in turn, lead to the prevention of hair fall.
The main reason for hair loss is stress; if you are stressed and have a lot on your mind, then the main reason for hair fall is stress and tension. Meditate or de-stress by doing something you like or pursuing your hobby.
The oil your hair regularly so that it gets proper care and nourishment. Oil helps to reduce hair fall and make your hair look silky.
Keep your hair tied. I know all of us to love to keep our hair open but keeping your hair tied is the best way to prevent hair loss.
Apply amla to your hair. Amla is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants which are very good for your hair. Take a few pieces of dried amla and grind it. Mix the powder with coconut oil, boil it, and apply the oil to your hair daily to see instant results.
Hence, these are some of the tips, which you ought to follow to have beautiful hair and prevent hair loss.
What is Radiation Therapy?
These are high energy Xrays used to kill cancer cells. These powerful rays attack the DNA (the chemical inside the cell which contains the genetic information). After the attack, the damaged cells attempt to repair the damage, if the repair is successful, the cell lives, however, if the repair is not successful, the cell dies.
There are mainly two types of radiation therapy - teletherapy and brachytherapy.
Teletherapy - when the radiation is delivered from a distance usually 80-100cm. Brachytherapy - when the radiation is delivered from near the target area. Both have their advantages and disadvantages and they are the weapons which are used depending upon the type of enemy.
The basic objective of radiation therapy or for that matter any treatment is maximum tumor kill and minimum side effects. With advances in technologies, now it is feasible to achieve maximum tumor kill (>95%) and keep side effects to a minimum. It is the latter that dictates the cost of treatment.
How is Radiation Therapy delivered?
Usually, it is a 5-6 weeks course, where the treatment is delivered 5 days/week on an outpatient basis. Each session is of 15-20 minutes.
Commons myths revolving around radiation therapy
- Radiation is painful - Scientific Fact - It is a painless procedure, similar to getting a CT scan done. One has to lie down on a couch for 15-20 minutes and rest is taken care of by the machine. The most important requirement is lying still and comfortably so that radiation is delivered accurately to the site desired.
- After taking radiation, I will become radioactive and pass on to people near me - Scientific Fact - Radiation does not pass from one person to another. Giving radiation is like splashing water, those nearby will be exposed to radiation at the time of splash, however, radiation does not spread from one person to another. Due to advances now unnecessary exposure is kept to a minimum and there are monitoring devices which record radiation exposure. However, your family members are safe.
- Radiation causes cancer - Scientific Fact - Yes, radiation causes cancer, since radiation causes damage to the DNA (called a mutation), however, the risk of developing cancer is slightly higher than normal individuals and the benefit attained through radiation outweighs this risk manifold. Also, it takes usually 10 years for radiation-induced cancer to develop, hence a greater concern while giving radiation to children.
- After complete removal, no need for radiation - Scientific Fact - Whether cancer will return or not depends upon multiple factors - extent of surgery (whether completely removed), type of cancer (some cancers are inherently notorious for aggressive behavior), extent of cancer (the ones which have spread are more likely to return even after complete removal). In all the cases where there is a likelihood of return, radiation is necessary for minimizing the chances of return. There are multiple research studies which have validated this.
Cost of radiation therapy-
Depends upon the technique used. Ranges from 50000 to 2 lakhs for the entire radiation therapy. The effect of radiation is the same, be it a 50000 treatment or a 2 lakh treatment, however it is the probability of side effects that vary, with latest advances better sparing of normal organs is possible. However, there are multiple charitable schemes available some governmental and some private schemes which render these expensive treatments affordable. Speak to your doctor for such schemes.
Sweet and juicy, mangos sure know how to satisfy your taste buds. But you may be avoiding this delicious fruit because you heard that it was high in carbohydrates. Well, compared to other fruits, that's true – mangos are higher in carbs, but not by much and certainly not enough to make you want to avoid the tropical fruit altogether.
A Look at the Carbs One cup of fresh-cut mango has 25 grams of carbohydrates. By comparison, the same serving of sliced peaches has 15 grams and chopped apples 17 grams. If you’re counting carbs for a low-carb diet or watching carbs to manage your blood sugar, the difference may make you think twice. But if you’re following a 2,000-calorie diet, each of these fruits, including the mango, meets less than 10 percent of your daily value for carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are your body’s primary source of energy and should provide most of your calories, especially when from healthy sources like mangos. Sugar Content Like all fruit, most of the carbohydrates in mangos comes from its sugar content. One cup of cut mango has 22 grams of sugar, while the same serving of both the peaches and the apples have only 13 grams. While your body uses the sugar in mangos the same way it uses table sugar, mangos also come with vitamins A and C, potassium, folate and fiber. Table sugar offers none of these nutritional benefits. Fiber Content In addition to sugar, some of the carbs in mangos comes from its fiber content. One cup of cut mango has 3 grams of fiber, which is the same amount in a cup of chopped apples, but more than in a cup of sliced peaches, which has 2 grams of fiber. Depending on your age and gender, you need between 21 to 38 grams of fiber a day. One cup of sweet juicy mango provides 8 to 14 percent of your daily needs.
The fiber in foods like mangos slows down digestion to allow for a gradual release of sugar and aids in hunger control. The fiber in mangos may also help keep you regular.
Serving Suggestions- Mangos taste great all by themselves, but you can use them to add sweetness to plain yogurt or unsweetened cereal so you don’t have to add extra sugar. The slightly tart tropical fruit also pairs well with mixed greens and is delicious made into a salsa with diced red onions to use on grilled chicken or fish. You can also add mangos to your smoothie or use them as fruit in your favorite muffin recipe.
All of us want to have smooth, flawless, soft, spotless, fair, skin and today I am going to give you some fantastic tips to take good care of your skin.
70% of our body is made up of skin and hence it is necessary for you to take proper care of your skin.
Your skin needs nourishment and it comes from food, so eat skin friendly foodstuff like yoghurt, green tea, kiwi, dark chocolate (I am not kidding, it is true), berries, salmon, almonds, carrots, tomato, etc.
You are what you eat and you look what you eat, so if you eat unwanted food, junk food, then you will tend to look fat and you will have a lot of pimples as pimples are a sign of eating wrong, oily and unhealthy food.
If you want to take good and proper care of your skin, then first you ought to find out your skin type. There are four skin types’ namely normal skin, oily skin, dry skin and combination skin.
If your skin looks lifeless, then you have dry skin. Dry skin lacks hydration and moisture; to help your skin look lively and beautiful, apply moisturizer daily at night.
If you sweat a lot, your skin looks greasy, you have a lot of pimples and there are patches on your pillow, then you have oily skin. Most of the people with oily skin tend to have blackheads, pimples, acne, etc.
As the skin is oily, dust tends to settle on it; hence, you have to wash your face frequently.
When your skin looks neither dry nor oily, then you have normal skin. One with a normal skin doesn’t face many problems, but then too use a moisturizer and a scrub daily.
Combination skin means you have a combination of both, oily skin and dry skin. Some patches of your skin may look dry and some may look oily.
If you have combination skin then you have to tend to each area carefully. It is better to consult a dermatologist if you have frequent outbreaks of acne on the oily part of your skin.
Hence, you need to take care of your skin according to its type. If don’t then it will only cause more damage to your skin.
No matter what the skin type, apply sunscreen before you go out in the sun, wash your face frequently and use a moisturizer and a face wash daily.
Activated charcoal is the byproduct of burning a carbon source like wood or (better yet) coconut shells. The substance is “activated” by high temperatures, removing all the oxygen and changing its chemical structure to create much smaller particles with more surface area.
Activated charcoal is known for its ability to bind to certain poisons, heavy metals, and other toxins and flush them from your body, making it a wonder substance for acute and general detoxification.
Here are some ways activated charcoal can be used in day-to-day life:-
Whitens teeth- It helps to whiten the teeth by changing the pH balance in the mouth and also prevent cavities, bad breath and gum disease. This activated charcoal use is cost-effective and an all-natural solution for a bright smile. For best results, brush your teeth with activated charcoal powder 2–3 times per week.
Helps to prevent hangovers- When activated charcoal is taken at the same time as alcohol, it can significantly reduce blood alcohol concentration.
Water filtration- It helps in the removal of fluoride which is very important for oral health, proper immune system functioning and healthy kidneys and liver.
Digestive Cleanse- It helps to promote a healthy digestive tract by removing toxins that cause allergic reactions and poor immune system function. Eat only organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meat and wild fish. Take 10 grams activated charcoal, 90 minutes prior to each meal, for two days.
Anti-aging- It has the potential to be a natural approach to healthy aging. With the reduced toxic load, the body experiences less of the oxidative damage that drives the aging process. This supports better cognitive function. Take two capsules per day after exposure to non-organic foods, heavy meals or after contact with other toxins.
Reduces high cholesterol- Studies around the world shows that it helps in reducing the bad cholesterol and increasing the good cholesterol. It also prevents abnormal hardening (sclerosis) in the heart and coronary blood vessels.
Those who have experienced it would vouch for the fact that a toothache is one of the worst pains. There could be times when the attack happens out of nowhere and you are crying for relief.
The tooth has 2 parts - the visible part called the crown and the invisible part called the root which is embedded in the jaw bone and covered by the gums.
Both the crown and the root have 3 layers from inside out. The crown has enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the mineralized part of the tooth, dentin has fine sensory dentinal tubules, and the pulp receives nerve and blood supply to the tooth through a small orifice at the end of the tooth called the apex. On the root surface, instead of enamel, there is a softer substance called cementum. The dentin and the pulp continue through the tooth but are thinner in the root portion of the tooth.
The mouth has the largest amount of bacteria in the body. These act on the food deposits on the tooth and produce acid which leads to the breakdown of the enamel. The only symptom when enamel breakdown happens is food lodgment, and it continues till treatment ensues. Once the breakdown reaches the dentin, sensitivity sets in, and most people go for treatment then. If not, the next layer is the pulp, when there is severe pain. This acute pulpitis causes pain in spurts and can be unbearable.
On the root surface, if there is periodontal disease and the gum line goes down, then cementum gets worn off (far more easily than enamel) and decay reaches the dentin and pulp (again faster than in the crown).
- Dental examination, clinical testing, and x-rays would be diagnostic. Tapping the tooth would reproduce the same pain and that is indicative of acute pulpitis
- Antibiotics and painkillers would be given to control the pain
- Once the infection subsides, root canal therapy is initiated. Using the decayed portion to gain access to the root, thin instruments called reamers and files are used to clean out the pulp space completely. They are then shaped to accommodate an inert substance called gutta percha which ensures infection does not seep into the tooth again.
- With RCT, the tooth is weakened, and therefore a crown needs to be placed. This could either be a ceramic crown or a full metal crown based on economic and esthetic reasons.
The best way to avoid this is regular visits to a dentist so that decay is identified in the early stages and treated with the minimal cost and maximum natural tooth preservation.
Stress can take a toll on your health in more ways than one and your sexual health is greatly and adversely impacted by stress. Stress can take a toll on the emotional relationship you share with your partner and also your own physical health, thus resulting in hampered sex life.
Stress and Our Libido:
By now, we know that hormones affect our bodies in numerous ways from childhood to adolescence, pregnancy, menopause and beyond. Cortisol is one of the hormones produced by stress, and you might have heard of it if you’ve ever seen those late night diet pill commercials with the image of the pixelated woman gaining weight in her abdomen. Our bodies need this hormone, but in small doses for short bursts of time. If elevated levels of Cortisol are being produced for a prolonged period of time, they suppress our sex hormones. The lower quantity of sex hormones equals lower libido.
Impact of Stress on Sex-
- Stress takes a toll on libido.
- Low levels of libido imply lesser secretion of sex hormones, thus, affecting your sex life.
- Stress can interfere with your fertility, ovulation and sperm count.
- Stress can cause a shift in the hormones. In women, the change in hormones manifests in the form of an irregular ovulatory cycle.
- Loss of intimacy.
- Being under stress constantly can lead to anger, emotional outbursts, depression and loss of intimacy with your partner; thus affecting your sexual relations.
- Stress also affects your body image negatively, thus leading to unpleasant and bad sex.
Ayurvedic medicines help to overcome the stress-related conditions without any side effects. Some herbs proved to be helpful in relieving stress & increasing libido like Ashwagandha,
safed musali, Shatavari, Manaskalp capsule, Ozaup capsule. These are beneficial in all stress-related sexual problems. Other tips are:
- Communicate your feelings: Many-a-times, communicating and sharing your feelings, desires and anxiety with your partner might be all that you need to rejuvenate your sex life.
- Regular exercise and proper sleep: 20-30 minutes of body work out or a session of yoga every day helps you to de-stress. A proper eight-hour sleep cycle will also go a long way in de-stressing you.
- Supplements to boost your libido and energy: Taking multivitamins, minerals, zinc and other supplements helps to boost your energy levels and libido, thus allowing you to enjoy your sex life to the fullest.
- Set the mood correctly: Set the right mood before your intimate sessions; with some soothing music, aromatic fragrance and dim lights. This can and will enhance your sex life by promoting relaxation, happiness and overall emotional well being.
