Management of Bronchial Asthma
I’m Dr. M. C. Gupta, practicing at Jeevan Jyoti Hospital, Faridabad for the last forty years in pulmonary medicine. Today, I will talk regarding bronchial Asthma. Asthma is prevalent in about 5-10 percent population. Symptoms of asthma are cough, breathlessness, chest, tightness and wheeze. It can occur at any age from an infant to old person. On examination, one may find bronchitis on chest.  

Prevention of asthma is by avoiding pollution, dust, smoke, stress and sudden change of temperature.

The treatment of asthma is, if it is mild and infrequent then, only SABAs that is Short-Acting Beta-Agonists can be taken off and on as and when required. If someone is having persistent asthma then along with inhaled corticosteroids one need LABAs that is Long-Acting Beta-Agonist which is to be continued till the symptoms are controlled. After the symptoms are controlled, one can be put on controller medicine that is inhaled corticosteroids and which should be taken in the minimum possible dose to prevent any side effects of the inhaled steroids. The side effects of inhaled steroids are very less as compared to oral steroids. The treatment may continue lifelong or the patient may go into reminiscence.

If you want to consult me regarding asthma, you can consult me via Lybrate.

Allergies in general & Homeopathy:

Allergy is the term we can use for anything which reacts adversely causing various types of symptoms which are not common. The things which cause allergy are called as Allergens. Those may be in the form of Food[milk, chocolates, sea food, cold items like ice creams, citrus. Like lemonades,ghee made, few nuts, shells,Fish?etc], Season,Environment, weather,Animals/Fur,ticks n mites,Metals,Chemicals, Drugs,Dust, Pollution,Soaps, Detergents, Fragrances, Perfumes, Pollen etc?.

All these may not be causative factor for one person who is already a sufferer.It varies from person to person.The people who are allergic to certain things in any form may not be allergic to other things,& the Allergens which create any problem in one may not show any effect on the other.It all depends purely on individual sensitivity, Immunity levels.In few, Genetic, hereditary factors also plays important role.

Basically, when a person becomes allergic to certain thing, there will be production of antibodies into the body as a general defense mechanism.But then the reaction b/w the allergens & antibodies will cause increased release of Histamine product which results in causing various symptoms. Like sneezings, watery discharge from Nose,Redness of Eyes, irritation, Itching of Nose n eyes.These all called as Rhinitis. But when skin becomes the sufferer like form developing Rash,[Urticaria]Redness, small eruptions, any discoloration etc, with itching, burning, irritation like, then it comes under Dermatitis[may be contact dermatitis].

Majority of allergies start from childhood, as then their immunity levels will be comparatively less.{But it does not mean that adults wont get? it all depends on Immunity, susceptibility of the individuals, which will be resulted by their Life style, any other health problems,stress factors etc].

If care was taken in initial stages, then in majority of cases, there will be no more further progress or c/o.S
First we have to observe the causative factors from which we are getting the c/o.If it can be avoidable, better to avoid; if cant, then,its ideal to go for T/t.
As prevention is better than Cure,Keep children distant from Pets,Fur toys, maintaining good hygiene, avoiding unnecessary medication for small small c/o also,application of different creams,Giving nutritious food,[food containing Vit C, B, A] physical exercises, {for infants? breast feeding for minimum 6-9 months will rise up their immunity levels] all will help them to be free from allergies. Practising the Pranayama, [breathing exercises] will give tremendous results in relieving the rhinitis c/o.
If allergies are neglected in initial condition, then they may progress into Sinusitis, Asthma, Eczema, anaphylactic shock etc.
Frequent usage of antihistamines gradually will decrease the effect of medicine & increase the resistance power of the allergens.Moreover, by the use of antihistamine, patient will feel more drowsy, dull,irritable, even more anxious also some times. If once the action of antihistamine diminished, then there will be no other choice except taking steroids, which will show many more side effects on long run of usage.
In Homeopathy, As Cure always based on the selection of symptoms, analysis of a person, there will not be any side effects.
Drugs like Arsenic album, Nux.Vomica, Calcarea carb, Tuberculinum, Carcinosin, Phosphorus, Rhus.Tox, Bell,Apis, Bromium, Lyssin, Hepar sulph, Nitric acid, Gelsemium,Silicea,Pulsatilla.Etc will help in giving Cure from various allergies.

Note:But always the drug & potency should be under guidance of Expert only.

I am nasal trouble when I walking on the dust path. Please tell me how I can get out from here.

Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis  will develop Asthma if not treated. But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust. Active treatment  of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve  quality of life.

If a dog is rabid it will die within 10 days. So if your pet Is immunized no need for full course of injections. Just watch your dog for 10 days.

A good healthy diet is fundamental to good health and a strong immune system. A majority of your diet should be made up of unprocessed, natural foods such as fresh fruits, vegies, legumes, wholegrains, nuts and seeds. Having a well-balanced diet will supply you with all the essential nutrients your body needs for a healthy immune system such as zinc, vitamin a and c, selenium and iron.

Drug Rashes - How To Manage Them?

Drug Rashes - How To Manage Them?

Drug rashes are generally defined as the reaction of the body to certain kinds of diseases. Different drugs result in different kinds of diseases which sometimes are as dangerous as being life-threatening. There are different types of drug rashes. They can manifest in different forms. Common ones are:

  1. Blisters and swelling: Many drugs result in acute blisters and swelling in different parts of the body. This condition, if unchecked, may aggravate, leading to dangerous consequences.
  2. Prolonged high fever: Continuous rise in fever is often diagnosed as a serious consequence of certain drugs.
  3. Abnormal redness of the skin: Few medicines often result in sudden reddening of the skin. This condition continues till the drug is discontinued.
  4. Rash and itching: This is considered as one of the most common side-effects of medicines. Often medicines result in continuous itching and rashes on the skin that also causes swelling, if unchecked.
  5. Swelling of tissues: Tissues often swell up as a result of consumption of certain medicines. Consequently, the concerned person experiences problems in breathing and often a drastic fall in blood pressure.

However, there are ways that one can adopt in order to combat drug rashes.

  1. Identify and discontinue the drug: One of the most essential ways of combating drug rashes is to identify the drug and immediately discontinue its consumption.
  2. Avoid using chemicals: One way of easy recuperation is to avoid using chemicals, soaps on the affected areas. If continued to use, they aggravate the already caused damage. On the other hand, Calamine can be used for treating drugs.
  3. Wear loose-fitting clothes: Wearing tight clothes that sticks to the body further damages the skin. Instead, one should try to wear loose-fitted clothes that allow the skin to heal.
  4. Apply cool compresses: Taking cool showers or applying cool compresses over the affected areas significantly help to recuperate fast. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Allergic Rhinitis

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
ENT Specialist, Solapur

Allergic Rhinitis:

  • Allergic rhinitis is commonly known as hay fever.
  • Common symptoms include sneezing, stuffy nose, watery eyes, and a sore, scratchy throat.
  • Possible triggers include grass, pollen, dust mites, cockroaches, cigarette smoke, and perfume.

An allergen is a normally harmless substance that causes an allergic reaction. 
Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is an allergic response to specific allergens. Pollen is the most common allergen.

1) recurrent sneezing 

2) running nose

3) blocked nose

4) itching in nose

5) recurrent coughing

6) pricky or sore throat 

7) itching in eyes

8) watery eyes

9) under eye circles

10) frequent headaches

11) fatigue

When your body comes into contact with an allergen, it releases histamine, which is a natural chemical that defends your body from the allergen. 

This chemical causes allergic rhinitis and its symptoms, including a runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.

In addition to pollen, other common causes include:

1) grass

2) dust

3) animal dander, cat 

4) saliva

5) mold

Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System String

BHMS
Homeopath, Bahadurgarh
Healthy Habits That Keep Your Immune System String

Over time, we have caused tremendous harm to our immune system. Day in and day out, we have potentially risked our lives by being so casual with our health choices. But still, is it possible to leverage some of this burden and thus make our immune system stronger? What if we incorporate some healthy habits into our daily regime? What if we improvise on our diet? Take certain additional vitamin supplements perhaps? Make other lifestyle changes in the hope of achieving a near-perfect immune system?


What exactly is the immune system?
The immune system in layman language can be considered as a protective cover of the human health system. We are surrounded by millions of pathogens (disease causing germs) that have the ability to enter into the body and cause damage to it. Here comes in the importance of the immune system, the body's natural shield against these pathogens.

How can you boost your immunity?
You definitely cannot evade all the pathogens and get a top-notch, impeccable immune system, but you can at least try and listen to what your body has to say, and take steps accordingly.
The first and foremost protective measure can be to follow certain general good-health guidelines:
Do not smoke. There can be no compromise on this issue. Smoking or consuming tobacco in any form brings about a host of health complications; the most pronounced of them all is probably cancer. Smoking, in more ways than one, can spell real trouble for your immune system. So better cut down on your puffs or gear up to face the various medical banes of smoking.
Eat a diet which is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low in saturated fat. Some examples may include citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables such as spinach or lettuce, yoghurt, almonds, lean meat. Sipping on green tea thrice a day is a wise choice in this regard. These measures not only strengthen the immune system but also enhance the immune system.
Drink plenty of water. Water keeps the body hydrated, the ultimate prerequisite for a strong immune system. It helps to flush out all the toxins and ensures that the cells get the optimum levels of oxygen. Drinking a glass of lukewarm water mixed with honey and lemon on an empty stomach after getting up in the morning can prove to be one of the best health choices that you can make for your body.
If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. Excessive alcohol consumption causes dehydration and it can deprive your body of the valuable immunity boosting nutrients. It also impairs the body's ability to fight off germs and infections.
Get adequate sleep. One reason behind stressing on the need to get adequate sleep is because it's so closely linked to the immune system. While you sleep, the body secretes certain hormones and substances which help better fight infections and diseases. This makes these hormones so vital and indispensable at the same time. So now you know what wonders can those 8 hours of sleep do to you.
Exercise regularly. If you're looking for a safe and smart way to boost your immunity, regular exercise is the answer to it. But we are not talking about being an ardent, hard-core gym-junkie; rather exercising in moderate amounts would suffice. Cardiovascular exercises such as walking or swimming, performed 30-45 minutes a day, can prove to be very beneficial.

Following foods may help minimize your asthma symptoms:--------------------- 1. Coffee. Have a cup of java, but go for the caffeinated variety--- studies suggest that caffeine can help open bronchial tubes for up to 4 hours, which is good because they become constricted when you have asthma. ----------------------- 2. Oranges--a study found that people with asthma wheezed less when they ate vitamin c-rich fruits, such as oranges. Not only does vitamin c (ascorbic acid) have anti-inflammatory properties, it also may boost your overall health. -------------- 3. Nuts. The vitamin e in nuts may help open your airways and reduce inflammation. Research has found that vitamin e has antioxidant properties, which help combat cell-damaging molecules known as free radicals.------------------ 4. Carrots. Carrots as well as other red, orange, and yellow fruits and veggies, contains beta carotene, which may decrease the asthma symptoms exercise causes. Your body converts beta carotene to vitamin a, which is an essential nutrient. Beta carotene also has antioxidant properties that can help ward off cell damage----------------------------- 5. Onions. Onions are loaded with tiny crystals known as flavonoids, which help fight inflammation from asthma by strengthening your capillary walls. They also can protect the lining of your lungs and bronchial tubes from damage caused by pollution. In addition to onions, apples, blueberries, and prickly pears -- all of which provide tasty ways to add flavonoids to your asthma diet------------------------ 6. Tuna. You want tuna in your diet because it contains omega-3 fatty acids and selenium. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown in some studies to reduce inflammation. Studies also show that people with asthma may lack selenium, and that adding more to their diets may help ward off asthma attacks------------------------------------- 7. Yogurt. Look specifically for yogurt that contains probiotics -- beneficial bacteria that has been shown to reduce inflammation. Non proven evidencesuggests that probiotics seem to reduce allergic reactions, and, for some people, asthma is triggered by allergies----------------- 8. Leafy greens. Spinach and other leafy greens are a good source of magnesium and folate. Research indicates people with asthma may be low in magnesium. Likewise, an increasing amount of evidence shows that adequate folate can suppress allergic reactions and may lessen the severity. 9. Apples. Full of vitamins and phytochemicals that may improve your overall lung capacity. In a study, people who ate at least five apples a week had better lung function than those who ate this fruit less frequently. However one must eat the the peel, too. That's where most of the health-helping flavonoids, such as quercetin, catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidins, reside. Dietary changes and asthma. While you're eating better, remember to avoid any foods or ingredients known to trigger your asthma. For example, some people find that the sulfites in dried fruit sets theirs off. Also, if you're getting nutrients from supplements, talk to your doctor because some may interfere with your asthma medications.
