Testis Problems in hindi - क्या होती है टेस्टिस की समस्या?

इस धरती पर ईश्वर ने इंसान बनाए और उन्हें शक्ति दे दी कि वह खुद प्रजनन द्वारा अपनी जनसंख्या बढ़ाए। पुरुष और महिला दोनों के पास अपनी अपनी प्रजनन प्रणाली यानी अपना अपना रिप्रोडक्टिव सिस्टम है। और जब यह दोनों मिलते हैं तो जन्म होता है शिशु का। तो दोस्तों आज हम बात करेंगे पुरुषों के प्रजनन प्रणाली के एक सबसे अहम हिस्से के बारे में। जिसे हम अंडकोष यानी टेस्टिकल्स नाम से जानते हैं।

अंडकोष यानी टेस्टिस पुरुषों में पायी जाने वाली एक थैली है। ओवल आकार के 2 अंडकोष एक थैली के अंदर मौजूद होते हैं। अंडकोष लाखों छोटे-छोटे शुक्राणु कोशिकाएं यानी स्पर्म्स पैदा करते हैं और उन्हें सुरक्षित रखते हैं। इसके अलावा ये टेस्टोस्टेरॉन हार्मोन भी बनाते हैं, एक ऐसा हार्मोन जिसके कारण पुरुष शुक्राणु पैदा करते हैं। साथ ही टेस्टोस्टेरॉन मांसपेशियों और बालों के लिए जरूरी होता है। इसे मर्दाना हार्मोन भी कहते हैं। कई कारणों से टेस्टिस में दर्द होता है पर वह जानने से पहले हम यह जानेंगे कि टेस्टिकल दर्द क्या है।

क्या है टेस्टिकुलर दर्द

टेस्टिकुलर दर्द एक ऐसा दर्द है जो पुरुषों को एक या दोनों अंडकोष में होता है। इस दर्द की पैदावार कभी-कभार खुद टेस्टिकल्स से होती है, या कभी यह दर्द दूसरी स्थिति में भी उत्पन हो जाता है। जहाँ आपके अंडकोष की थैली में किसी प्रकार का तकलीफ होना या पेट में कोई तकलीफ होना, आपके टेस्टिकल्स के दर्द का कारण बन सकता हैं। टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द एक्यूट यानी काम समय के लिए या क्रोनिक यानी लंबे समय के लिए हो सकता है। वैसे तो कई सारे कारण होते हैं। टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द होने के पर यह जानना जरूरी है कि कुछ कारण ऐसे भी है  जिनके होने पर तुरंत इलाज करवाना जरूरी है। नहीं तो आपका अंडकोष हमेशा के लिए खराब हो सकता है। आइये जानते हैं किन कारणों से टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द हो सकता है।

1. चोट लगना
अंडकोष बहुत अधिक संवेदनशील होता है, और आसानी से उनको नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। यदि इसपर हल्का सा भी दबाव पड़ता है तो इसमें दर्द हो सकता है। पुरानी चोट भी इसका दर्द बाद में उभार सकती है।

2. इंगुइनल हर्निया
इसे ग्रोइन हर्निया के नाम से भी जाना जाता है। इसमें छोटी आंत का कुछ भाग आपके अंडकोष में आकर दर्द और सूजन पैदा करता है। यह हर्निया अक्सर भारी सामान उठाने के कारण होता है। जिम करते समय सही लंगोट पहने भारी वजन उठाते हैं बिना वह अक्सर हर्निया का शिकार हो जाते हैं।

3. तोरसिओं
इस स्थिति में आपकी स्पेर्मटिक कोर्ड मुड जाती है। जिसके कारण टेस्टिकल्स की ओर जाने वाला रक्त प्रवाह बाधित हो जाता है। यह बहुत तेज दर्द का कारण बनता है। समय रहते इसका इलाज न हो तो अंडकोष हमेशा के लिए खराब भी हो सकता है।

4. अधिवृषण यानी एपीडिड्यमिटिस की समस्या
अधिवृषण एक नली जैसी होती है जो की आपके दोनों टेस्टिकल्स के पीछे की ओर स्थित होती है। इसमें अधिवृषण में जलन होने लगती है और सूजन भी आने लगती है। एपीडिड्यमिस में जलन होने के कई कारण हो सकते हैं जैसे चोट लगना, बैक्टीरिया द्वारा संक्रमण, सेक्स द्वारा फैलने वाला संक्रमण जिसे हम STD के नाम से जानते है। एपीडिड्यमिटिस ज्यादातर 18 से 36 वर्ष के पुरुषों में ज्यादा पाया जाता है।

5. ओरचीटिस
इस रोग में आपके टेस्टिकल्स में जलन होने लगती है, जो की बैक्टीरियल या वायरल संक्रमण के कारण होता है। यह जलन एक या दोनों अंडकोष में होती है और इसमें अंडकोष में सूजन और दर्द रहने लगता है। और यह ज्यादातर 45 या उससे बड़ी उम्र के पुरषों में अधिक देखने को मिलता है।

6. अन्य बीमारियां
पुरुष के अंडकोष में दर्द के लिए कई अन्य बीमारियां भी जिम्मेदार होती हैं। डाययबिटिक नेफ्रोपैथी के कारण अंडकोष की नसें क्षतिग्रस्त हो सकती हैं, यह भी दर्द का प्रमुख कारण बनता है। इसके अलावा क्लैमीडिया जैसे यौन संचारित रोग भी अंडकोष में दर्द के लिए जिम्मेदार होते हैं।

दर्द में राहत के उपाय 

1. आराम करें 
अंडकोष में दर्द और सुजन से ग्रसित लोगों को डॉक्टर की सलाह पर बेड रेस्ट जरूर करें और कोई ऐसा काम न करें जिससे आपके अंडकोष पर दबाव पड़े।

2. बर्फ का इस्तेमाल
दर्द होने पर बर्फ काफी कारगर इलाज है। बर्फ का टुकड़ा रुमाल या तौलिए में लपेटकर दर्द वाली जगह पर हर दो घंटे में थोड़ी-थोड़ी देर के लिए लगाने से आराम मिलता है। 

3. सही माप की लंगोट
हमेशा सही माप का अंडरवियर या लंगोट का इस्तेमाल करें। इससे अंडकोष को प्रयाप्त सहारा मिलता है और दर्द में राहत मिलती है।

4. वजन न उठाएं
यदि आपके अंडकोष में दर्द है तो ध्यान रखें कि कभी भी भारी भरकम बोझ न उठाएं और यदि जरुरी हो तो अपने घर वालों की मदद लें। इससे अंडकोष पर दबाव नहीं पड़ेगा और आराम मिलेगा।

5. चोट से बचना
चोट लगना एक बड़ा कारण है अंडकोष में दर्द या सूजन आने का। चोट कई प्रकार से लग सकती है। खेलों में चोट से बचने के लिए गार्ड या कप का इस्तेमाल करें और सपोर्टर जरुर पहनें।

6. सही समय पर इलाज
एपीडिड्यमिटिस, पथरी, और संक्रमण की स्तिथि में अपने डॉक्टर से जरुरी दर्द निवारक दवा और एंटीबायोटिक्स नियमित रूप से लें। इससे दर्द को कम करने में मदद मिलेगी।

7. सही आहार लें 
कम कोलेस्ट्रॉल वाला खाना खाइए और ज्यादा से ज्यादा पानी पिएं इससे दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।

8. प्रोटेक्टिव सेक्स
STD एक बड़ा कारण है अंडकोष की बीमारी का। इसलिए हमेशा सुरखित यौन संबंध बनाएं।

9. आयुर्वेद का सहारा
आयुर्वेद एक बहुत कारगर जरिया है। किसी भी प्रकार की परेशानियों का समाधान पाने के लिए। आयुर्वेद के अनुसार हल्दी का लेप अंडकोष के बढ़ने यानि सूजन को कम करने में आपकी मदद कर सकता है। अदरक के रस में शहद मिलाकर पीने से लाभ मिलता है। इसी प्रकार टमाटर, सेंधा नमक और अदरक का सलाद के रूप में सेवन करने से भी फायदा होता है।

5 Tips On Managing Running Injuries!

5 Tips On Managing Running Injuries!

Running is a sport that many people indulge in, on a daily basis. For many professional athletes, running is also a part of their job. While it may be an extremely fulfilling experience in sheer physical terms, it also has varied implications in the long run as far as the health of your bones, joints and muscles go. Also, runners are constantly at the risk of getting injured, which can lead to many complications. Read on to know how you can protect the same with these five tips to avoid injuries.

  1. Warming Up and Stretching: Many injuries can happen when you do not stretch before you indulge in a strenuous activity like running. Warming up should be done with the help of a quick brisk walk that should happen a few minutes before you start running. Also, when you are stretching, you should not hold your breath and do it slowly without rushing yourself. Avoid stretching your muscles when they are cold. The stretching exercises should happen after the warm up.
  2. Strengthening Exercises: It is important to indulge in good amount of exercises that will strengthen your quads, calves and feet so that your muscles are strong enough to support your weight while you run without putting undue pressure on the joints, which can succumb to injuries and fractures.Strengthening exercises are given to hamstring muscles as well.
  3. Weight: Managing your weight is one of the most important parts of the regimen for a runner. If you are taking up running professionally or if you are doing it as exercise, you must ensure that your weight is at a normal level as per your ideal BMI so that you do not end up putting pressure on your knees. A good diet and plenty of exercise will help in maintaining a good weight.
  4. Footwear: Your shoes are one of the most important aspects when you are running. You must choose shoes that have a good cushion or gel inside. Be sure to select shoes that are designed for runners specifically, so that the shoes take on the shape of your feet and give you good balance and motion even as the friction with the ground happens. The correct footwear will support the running motion and keep injuries at bay.
  5. Stride Length and Impact: It is imperative to practice the correct stride length and impact when your feet hit the ground as this is where injuries most commonly happen. You will need to ensure that you get professional help from a trainer so that you can gauge and accordingly practice your stride length in keeping with your frame so that the impact is minimal on the rest of the body and its joints. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

Binge drinking is a problem that has been noticed nowadays in many teenagers and youngsters. Whether it is at an event or a party, drinking high doses of alcohol in one sitting is known as binge drinking.

Binge Drinking in Women Is Different from Men

Binge drinking for men is the consumption of more than five alcoholic beverages in one sitting. But the case is different for women. For women binge drinking is defined as a woman consuming more than four alcoholic beverages in a single sitting. Also, it has been found in a survey that almost 75% of the binge drinkers are college students. Among these, the ratio of men is much higher than women.

What Leads to Binge Drinking?

  1. Lack of control: One of the most common reasons is, of course, the lack of control. When such a person comes in contact with alcohol, they tend to over drink because they have no control over their drinking.
  2. The weekend fun: Secondly, another reason is seen in the case of youngsters between the age of 18 years to 35 years. These are youngsters who have a tendency of meeting friends and going out on weekends after the week’s toil. They know that after this weekend they will be able to enjoy their favorite bottle only in the next weekend. Hence, they binge drink.

Results of Binge Drinking

It becomes difficult to check how much alcohol will affect a person, because it depends on various factors, such as height, weight, age and also at times, alcohol tolerance of the person. But of course, there are some common results of binge drinking. Some of such results are:

  • Unintended and unprotected sex leading to pregnancy or even STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) in some cases 
  • Accidents that may lead to severe injuries and even death at times
  • Physical or mental assault of others that the person may regret later on.

When Is Help Required?

When the person has a habit of driving after drinking, neglecting family and doing harm to others as well, help is surely needed. Here, short 4-5 sessions with a therapist may help. A regular drinking habit is no doubt a reason to worry. But binge drinking is another reason that can lead to bigger problems and hence, needs to be examined closely too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Cherry Hemangioma: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
Cherry Hemangioma: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Cherry Angiomas are benign skin growths comprised of abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They are also alternatively known as Campbell de Morgan spots or senile angiomas. Cherry Angiomas are a rather common skin disorder.

The Cherry Angioma appears bright red, oval or circular in shape and are small in size. They can either be smooth, and close to the skin's surface, or they can be marginally raised. They mostly appear on the arms, shoulders and torso. If the Angioma is agitated (scratched, cut open or rubbed), it might result in intense bleeding in some cases.

Causes:
The exact cause of Cherry Angiomas is unknown. Genetic predispositions are usually believed to be a major cause. Other than that, pregnancy, climate and chemical exposure have also been said to cause Cherry Angiomas.
An obvious link, however, has been established between age and the appearance of Cherry Angiomas. Usually, people over 30 develop Cherry Angiomas, which only seem to augment in number and size with age.

Symptoms:
There are no other specific symptoms of Cherry Angiomas, except for the benign growths on the skin. The skin growths are usually characterised by:

  • Vivid, cherry-red colour
  • Small sizes
  • Smooth growths which are close to the skin's surface, or are raised

Treatment:
Cherry angiomas usually does not need any treatment, but if you want, you can remove them for cosmetic reasons. You can also remove the Cherry Angiomas if they appear in places on your body where they can get easily irritated (such as, on the hands), and cause bleeding.

Some methods of removing Cherry Angiomas include:

  1. Electro-cauterization: In this method, the angioma is burned off by an electric current that is passed through a tiny probe.
  2. Cryosurgery: In this procedure, the angioma is frozen with liquid nitrogen; the angioma is destroyed by the severe cold. This is a relatively easy and quick procedure.
  3. Laser surgery: In this procedure, pulsed dye laser is used to remove the angioma. The pulsed dye laser (PDL) is an undiluted yellow laser that is hot enough to damage the growth.
  4. Shave excision: In this procedure, the angioma is removed from the surface of the skin by a sharp razor. Shave excision is a substitute to invasive surgery that would require an incision to remove the growth and then sutures (stitches) to close the laceration. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Female Masturbation - 2 Psychological Benefits

Female Masturbation - 2 Psychological Benefits

Masturbation is a wonderful way to explore your physicality which is healthy as well as beneficial. According to research, women who masturbate regularly are likely to enjoy better sex lives with their partners and are more self confident in nature. Women who indulge in masturbation enjoy a wealth of physical as well as mental health benefits. Following are the benefits that you should be aware of:

Physical benefits of female masturbation:

  1. Prevention of infections: Female masturbation is very important as it prevents cervical infections and also relieves you from infections in the urinary tract. Recent studies suggest that masturbation helps relieve you from pain caused by urinary tract infections. It lubricates the vagina and eliminates harmful bacteria from the cervix. 
  2. Better cardiovascular health: Masturbating promotes improvement in cardiovascular health and also effectively lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It has been observed that women who masturbate regularly are less vulnerable to coronary heart disease and overall have a better immune system. 
  3. Prevents insomnia: Masturbation can be a natural way to prevent insomnia as there is a subsequent release of hormones and stress involved. During masturbation the hormone called Dopamine increases as the process reaches climax. After orgasm, the hormones called oxytocin are released along with endorphins which consequently help you to sleep better.

Psychological or mental benefits of masturbation

  1. Improves mood and busts stress: Masturbation helps you get rid of depressed feelings and in turn positively affects your sexual life with your partner. It improves your mood and is considered an effective stress buster without any associated side effects.
  2. Helps you accept yourself: Accepting your sexuality is very important as it makes you aware of your body and makes you comfortable with it. It strengthens your love for yourself and increases your confidence. Paying attention to your sexual desires and fulfilling them yourselves is pleasurable as well as healthy. Masturbation can help you know your physical needs and relieve stress associated to your personal and professional life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Are You Obese? Know Your Type!

Are You Obese? Know Your Type!

An excess amount of fat present in the human body can lead to a chronic condition called obesity. If the amount of fat, which is used to perform multiple functions in the human body, is found in excess (more than 25% in males and 30% in females), it leads to obesity. Besides being a cosmetic concern, obesity is a chronic disease that can lead to other serious ailments such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, gallstones and other similar illnesses. It has a higher rate of relapse rate and is difficult to treat.

Causes

  1. Consumption of more calories than the person burns through various activities throughout the day is the primary cause. Overeating, especially in diets having a majority of fats, is a major cause of obesity.
  2. Obesity can be a result of certain medical conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome (a disorder that develops due to an increased exposure to immense amounts of “cortisol” over an extended period of time), Prader-Willi Syndrome (a birth disorder), hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), polycystic ovary syndrome (enlarged ovaries characterized by tiny cysts on the outside) and other diseases.
  3. Hormonal disorders and genetics may also contribute to obesity. It is observed that the likelihood of being obese increases if the parents are obese. Hormones that facilitate fat regulation in the body are affected by genetics.
  4. Lifestyle choices such as inactive, sedentary lifestyle and consuming an excess amount of fast foods such as high calorie beverages.
  5. Psychological factors do have a role to play in people being obese. Many people overeat as a response to emotions such as stress, sadness, boredom or anger.

Symptoms
A person is generally considered to be obese if his/her BMI (Body Mass Index) is above 30.
1. A person whose BMI is in the range of 30 to 35 is classified under “Type I obese”.
2. A person in the BMI range of 35 to 39 falls under the category of “Type II obesity”.
3. If the BMI of a person is above 40, he/she is considered to be extremely obese.

BMI is usually a reliable method to find out if a person is obese, but in certain instances such as that of a professional bodybuilder, BMI could prove to be inaccurate. Without treatment, obesity can lead to serious health conditions such as:
1. Gallstones
2. Osteoarthritis
3. Sleep Apnea
4. Heart Disease
5. Stroke
6. Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (characterized by the inability to breathe long or deep enough)
7. Reproductive problems. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Fetal Ultrasound!

Fetal Ultrasound

What is fetal ultrasound?

Fetal ultrasound is a test used during pregnancy. It creates an image of the baby in the mother's womb (uterus). It’s a safe way to check the health of an unborn baby. During a fetal ultrasound, the baby’s heart, head, and spine are evaluated, along with other parts of the baby. The test may be done either on the mother’s abdomen (transabdominal) or in the vagina (transvaginal).

There are several types of fetal ultrasound:

  • Standard ultrasound. The test uses sound waves to create two-dimensional images on a computer screen.
  • Doppler ultrasound. This test shows the movement of blood through the umbilical cord, in the baby’s heart, or between the baby and the placenta.
  • 3-D ultrasound. This test shows a lifelike image of an unborn baby.

Ultrasound uses an electronic wand called a transducer to send and receive sound waves. No radiation is used during the procedure. The transducer is moved over the abdomen, and sound waves move through the skin, muscle, bone, and fluids at different speeds. The sound waves bounce off the baby like an echo and return to the transducer. The transducer converts the sound waves into an electronic image on a computer screen.

Why might I need fetal ultrasound?

Fetal ultrasound is a routine part of prenatal care in the U.S. This is because it’s a low risk procedure that gives important information. A routine prenatal ultrasound can check for defects or other problems in the fetus. The following can be examined:

  • Abdomen and stomach
  • Arms, legs, and other body parts
  • Back of the neck
  • Head and brain
  • Heart chambers and valves
  • Kidneys
  • Placenta placement
  • Spine
  • Umbilical cord
  • Urinary bladder

A fetal ultrasound can also show:

  • If a woman is pregnant with multiple babies
  • The gestational age of a baby
  • Where to place the needle during removal of amniotic fluid (amniocentesis)
  • Whether a feus is growing properly

Your healthcare provider may have other reasons to request a fetal ultrasound.

What are the risks of fetal ultrasound?

All procedures have some risks. The risks of this procedure include:

  • Mild discomfort from the transducer on the abdomen or in the vagina
  • Reaction to a latex covering for the transducer, if you have a latex allergy

In some cases, an ultrasound may appear to show a problem that is not there called false-positive. The test can also miss a problem that is there called false-negative. In some cases, additional testing may be needed after a fetal ultrasound.

Fetal ultrasound is sometimes offered in nonmedical settings. This is done as a way to give keepsake images or videos for parents. In these cases, it’s possible for untrained staff to misread the images and give parents incorrect information. Make sure to have fetal ultrasound done by trained medical staff. Talk with your healthcare provider if you have questions.

Your risks may vary depending on your general health and other factors. Ask your healthcare provider which risks apply most to you. Discuss any concerns you may have.

What to Expect During STD Screening?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
What to Expect During STD Screening?

From time to time, it's a good idea for a man to undergo an STD screening. This is true if a man is enjoying the company of more than one sexual partner, if he isn't sure that his partner is monogamous (or if he is not), or if he's thinking about unprotected sex with a steady partner for the first time. Men should consider STD screening an integral part of penis care, not something that can be overlooked or put off!

What happens during an STD screening?

For many men, the thought of a strange messing around with their junk is the stuff of nightmares - even if that inspection happens in a medical setting. Here's what a guy can expect:

1. A ton of questions. A guy will be asked a multitude of questions, and some of them might seem to be asking for 'too much information.' A doctor will need to know about a man's sexual history, how many partners he has had recently (or ever), what kind of sexual activity he engages in and any health issues that might have arisen during those encounters. The doctor will ask blunt questions and expect frank answers. This is not the time to be coy!

2. A physical examination. A guy can expect to have his equipment explored a bit by the physician. This will include a visual examination for any lesions, irritations, bumps, bruises, sores and the like. It will also include a physical examination in which the doctor will touch the penis and surrounding area. The goal is to find any lumps or bumps that can't be seen, only felt.

3. Swabs and urine tests. During an STD screening, the doctor might want to take samples for examination by a laboratory. In order to do this, swabbing is typically used. This means using an instrument that looks very much like a Q-tip, passing it over and around any questionable areas to pick up a variety of cells from that area, and then sending those cells to the lab for examination. A man might also be used to provide a urine sample.

4. Blood testing. Blood tests are extremely helpful in STD screening, as they pick up infections that might be latent in the body - meaning that there are no outward signs of it at the moment. Herpes is a good example of this. A man who is having an active outbreak shows signs of the problem, but during the times between outbreaks, it can be impossible to tell a man has herpes simply by looking at him. A blood test, however, can reveal the truth.

5. More invasive examinations. A man who is dealing with a particular issue might undergo more invasive testing. For instance, a guy who engages in regular anal play and complains of bleeding or pain in that area might be examined there to figure out what the problem might be. However, rest assured that the doctor will be gentle and try to cause as little embarrassment as possible. Doctors have seen it all, so nothing a guy says will shock them or make them view him differently.

Staying healthy

A man who is worried about STDs should take special care to prevent the problem by using condoms whenever he has sex with a new partner, ensuring he is in a monogamous relationship before going without protection, and getting STD screening on a regular basis, regardless of his relationship status.

When it comes to penis health, a man can also make great strides toward better penis care with a good penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Though no crème can prevent a sexually transmitted disease, the regular application of a crème indicates good penis hygiene; and that means a man will be faster to catch the first signs of an STD if he does contract one. A guy should look for a luxurious combination of Shea butter and vitamin E, as well as other nutrients and vitamins, to ensure his penis skin stays in tip-top shape.

Gall Bladder!

Gall Bladder:

Gall Bladder is a small sac which is pear shaped and is present just underneath the Liver. It is connected to the Liver through a small duct called the bile duct, the gall bladder stores the bile which is secreted by the liver and sends it to the intestines to aid in the digestion of fats.

When there are excess toxins in the liver there is concentration in the bile and this gets stored up in the bile thus leading to various kinds of gall bladder problems, such as- gall stones, infection and inflammation

Symptoms are as follows:

  • Pain – mild to severe pain in the right side of the abdomen which usually increases with deep inspiration and expiration, Nausea, Vomitings, Loose bowels or constipation, Excess Gas, Fainting, fever and so on.
  • In my practice I’ve found that people with obesity and high LDL cholesterol levels tend to have increased risk of gall stone or gall bladder problems, people who are obese also tend to have gall stones.
  • Now - a - days owing to the food and lifestyle habits almost every other person has small stones in the gall bladder which may not be quite a problem now but later may pose a threat if they increase in size
  • Solution:  to avoid these problems of gall bladder we don’t need heavy medications and procedures unless until the problem is very severe, as there is a saying “ a stitch in time saves nine” you can save your gall bladder when your body gives you the signals that it is not able to take more toxins for this you need to avoid certain foods which I list below and follow a good detoxification of liver every fortnight:

Foods to avoid-

High fatty fried foods, sugary foods, Alcohol, coffee and chocolate, many people love creamy foods which lead to obesity and thus gall bladder problems avoid those creams,

Foods to take-

Beans, lentils, beetroots, celery, apples, carrots, any green veggies, these will help your liver detoxify easily

If you’re already having a gall bladder problem, you need to immediately make changes in your diet and lifestyle habits or get ready to get the gall bladder removed which might make it more difficult to digest fats and you will gain even more weight.

Homoeopathic remedies such as Taraxacum and Cardus Marinus help in solving the gall bladder problems but you need to consult a homoeopathic physician before taking these medications for proper medical guidance.

Conclusion:

Avoid these above-mentioned foods and most of all stress try to be good yourself and love your body don’t force it to have more than what it can bear.
