Hello , masturbation does not effect body building, but if it is in excess this may cause these harms to your body :- 1. Masturbation makes you weak, it spends more energy and burns your calorie 2. Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3.Masturbation is a main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4. Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time. Controlling it is a very big menace. 5. Masturbation creates drowsiness; you will be sleeping most of the time after ejaculation of your sperm. You will experience a damn tired. 6.Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7. Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one to feel bad on his own.

Causes and treatment for Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Hello friends, main Dr.(major) Vipin Kakar. I am an ENT surgeon. Aaj main aapko kuch aise tips batauga hearing loss ke baare mein, bachho aur bado mein jo aapke bahut kaam aa sakte hai aur aap uspe amal karke uska faida utha sakte hai. Aajkal hearing loss navjaat shishu, jo ek din ka paida hua bachha, usme bhi pata chal jata hai ke hearing loss hai ya nahi hai. Ab hum hearing loss ki kyun baat kar rahe hai?  Kyunki hearing loss ek bahut hi common janam jaat problem hai jo ki 1 lakh mein se 250-400 bachho mein paayi jaati hai.

Agar hum thyroid ki problem ko socho toh wo 1 lakh mein se sirf 40 bachho mein hai, jab ke hearing loss 250-400 bachho mein hai. Toh videsho mein toh koi bhi discharge nahi ho sakta hospital se bina hearing ki jaach karaye. Toh ab hum 1 din ke bachhe ka hearing test karke ye pata laga lete hai ki usko aage treatment ki zarurat hai ya nahi. Ab hume ye jaanna hai ki hum kyun itna jaldi pata lagana chahte hai? Agar treatment hoga utna hi bachhe ko faida hoga. Jo janam se suntan aur bolta nahi hai, wo bachhe ka agar ilaaj der mein karayege toh results bilkul aadhe ho jayege. Aaj ki date mein hearing loss ka ilaaj sambhav hai. Ab hearing loss alag alag cheezon se hota hai toh aap agar apne kisi bachhe mein aapko lagta hai ki hearing loss hai ya wo theek tarah se aawazo pe response nahi de raha hai toh aap kripya karke apne ENT surgeon ke paas jayiye. Hearing loss ki treatment ke liye jis tarah ki bimaari hogi jis wajah se hearing loss hoga use treat kiya jaa sakta hai.

In case, agar usko hearing loss 90% se zada hai jisme hum koi dawai se nahi thik kar sakte toh unke liye aajkal humlog Cochlear implant bhi kar rahe hai. Cochlear implant ke liye ek surgery hai jisme do tarah ki machine lagti hai, ek sir ke andar jo surgery se lagayi jaati hai aur ek machine bahar lagti hai. Bahar wali machine aawaz ko catch karti hai aur andar wali machine ko bhejti hai. Toh kuch saal, therapy ke baad bachha ekdum normal bolne lag jaata hai. Main aapko Cochlear implant ka ek demonstration dena chahta hu. Jo machine andar lagti hai wo toh surgery madhyam se andar lag jayegi lifelong, dusri machine jo bahar lagti hai wo ye ek coin ke jitni hoti hai. Ye coin taqreeban itna bada hota hai aur ye sir mein baalon mein chup jaata hai. Bas itna hi aur ye aawaz catch karke andar wale implant ko bhejta hai aur therapy ke baad aapka bachha, agar aapne timely ilaaj karwaya hai toh woe k normal school mein jaane laayak ho jaata hai.

Kuch bachhe toh itna acha karte hai ke aap pata nahi laga sakte ki unka implant bhi hua hai ya nahi. Lekin har case mein implant nahi ho sakta hai. Kuch hearing loss simple kaan ki machine se bhi thik ho jaate hai aur kuch jinme kaano mein paani bhar jata hai. Toh paani nikaalne se bachha normal sunne lag jata hai. Ab main aapko kuch aisi cheezein videos mein dikhana chaahuga jisse aap dekh kar aapko vishwaas bhi ho jayega ki bachha implant ke baad ek normal school mein jaane laayak ho jata hai aur aapko ye pata lagana bahut hi mushkil hai ke kis bachhe ko implant hua hai aur kaunsa bachha normal hai.
(Another person in a video) Swar clinic mein ek choti si class thi ya conference tha usme bataya gaya ke Bilateral implantation bahar hone shuru ho gaye hai aur agar aap chaahe toh aap apne bachhe ka….aap aayiye, aap suniye ke kya kaha jaa raha hai aur aap decide kijiye. Toh humne wo class attend ki, then and there after the conference, we decided that we will go for this Bilateral Implantation. Aur Bilateral implant 2 saal baad hua, first implant and the second implant, mtlb 4 saal aur 6.5 saal uski age thi jab ye implant hua.

(The kid who got the implant) I thank cochlear implant company and Swar clinic, it is because of the innovation of Cochlear Implant Company and efforts of Swar clinic that I can hear and speak like other children. I am very happy that I am studying in a regular school and talk to my friends comfortably. I am thankful to Dr. Vipin uncle and Dr. Suneeta aunty for their efforts and making me what I am today. I would like to add that I have two implants, with two implants I have no problem in school and I have no fears also. I request all parents to go for Bilateral implant for their children. Thank you.

(Dr. Vipin Kakar in the video again) ab in cheezon ke baad agar aapko apne bachhe mein ya parivaar mein agar aapko koi sunne se related queries hai toh aap Lybrate ke through aap mujhe contact kar sakte hai.
