Why Amino Acids Matter for Penis Health?

When it comes to keeping a healthy penis, few things are as easy - but also as important - as applying a good penis health crème every day. But what is it, exactly, that makes these crèmes so important? When it comes to penis care and keeping penis skin smooth and supple, there are a number of ingredients that matter, including vitamin E and Shea butter. But other ingredients work not only on the skin itself, but underneath the skin as well, imparting a wealth of benefits. Among these ingredients are powerful amino acids.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which in turn are the building blocks of the body itself. Amino acids serve numerous functions, including assisting the body in the most basic and important functions, such as preserving nerve endings and enhancing circulation.

Here are two of the most common amino acids for a healthy penis, and why they matter so much:

- L-arginine. When in the body, L-arginine is an integral part of the process of creating nitric oxide. This natural enzyme is responsible for many things, including balancing the nervous system and enhancing cardiac function. It does this by allowing the blood vessels to dilate more easily, which then allows for more and better blood flow throughout the body. This is also true in the smallest vessels, such as those that run through the penis. In fact, L-arginine is vitally important when it comes to erectile function, as good cardiovascular health can make a significant difference in the frequency and quality of a man's erections.

- L-carnitine. This vital amino acid is well-known among body builders, as it provides lots of benefits that lead to better muscle mass and function. L-carnitine is necessary for boosting testosterone levels, improving fertility and helping to oxygenate the entire body. Obviously, all these things matter to a man who is concerned about keeping a healthy penis. Testosterone levels play a role in a man's desire, which in turn can mean that he stays more sexually active. A boost in fertility is excellent for those men who want to eventually get a partner pregnant. And the oxygenation of the body includes those smaller blood vessels, such as those that fill the penis. Besides that, the extra oxygen is important when it comes to the nerve endings in the penis, as they need plenty of oxygenated blood flowing through the penis in order to work in tip-top shape.

It's clear that these two amino acids matter for penis care, as they help protect the penis from nerve damage, improve sensation, provide for better blood flow, boost testosterone and more. But they are also important for overall health; remember, cardiovascular disease is quite common these days, especially among the population in America. Any little bit helps, and amino acids like L-arginine and L-carnitine are proven to directly fight vascular issues through the rich oxygen in the blood and the relaxing of the blood vessels, thus allowing that oxygen to reach more cells.

Are soya chunks gud for bodybuilding? As it contains 54g of protein per 100g with all essential amino acids.
yes it's good to have soya chunks but it's not a complete protein as it is deficient in some amino acids so include other protein rich foods like all milk and milk products, eggs, pulses, sprouts, nuts etc.

DIARRHOEA in infants

Infants Topic Diarrhoea

 

When if one frequently passes watery stool that have no lumps in them look out for other symptoms of diarrhoea. These can include vomiting, fever, and sometimes blood or mucus in your baby's stool


 

Newborns pass stool freq, so you may worry that your baby has diarrhoea when in fact one pass stool that are normal for her age.

Also, how often your baby does a stool will depend on whether she's being breast or formula-fed.


 

Here are more signs of normal motion:

  1. The stool of breastfed newborn babies is usually yellowish and on the soft or liquid side. Your baby may fill nappy up to five times daily.

  2. Sometimes a breastfed baby will pass motion during or immediately after each breastfeeding session. This happens because as her stomach fills up, the milk stimulates her entire intestinal tract, prompting a bowel movement.


 

Within a month, most breastfed babies do one or two poos a day.


Causes of diarrhoea?

The most common cause of diarrhoea is a virus called rotavirus

Rotavirus causes an infection of the gut called gastroenteritis. The infection damages the inner lining of your baby's intestine, allowing fluid to leak and food to pass through without any nutrients being absorbed. In some cases, rotavirus can lead to a serious bowel infection and dehydration.


 

A vaccine against rotavirus will be offered as part of your baby's routine immunisations when she is eight weeks and again when she is 12 weeks.


 

Diarrhoea can also be caused by:

  1. Allergies (find out more about milk allergy and intolerance and food allergies)

  2. Antibiotics

  3. Food poisoning

  4. Enzyme deficiencies, although these are rare


 

How should care during baby's diarrhoea?

  1. Make sure that your baby drinks plenty of fluids to help ease her symptoms and prevent dehydration.

  2. If your baby is taking breast or formula feeds best than

  3. You can try your baby with sips of oral rehydration solution (ors) a few times an hour.

  4. An ors helps to replace the fluids and salts your baby loses because of the diarrhoea. Keep giving water and usual breastfeeds

  5. Don’t give her fruit juices, glucose drinks and fizzy drinks. Unabsorbed sugar draws water into the intestine and can make diarrhoea worse

  6. Don’t give your baby anti-diarrhoeal medicine. It must not be given to children under 12 years old, as it could cause serious side-effects

  7. To prevent your baby passing on her diarrhoea to other children, keep her away from childcare or nursery until at least 48 hours after her last diaeroohea


 

Breastfed babies less likely to get diarrhoea?

Yes. Certain elements in breastmilk can inhibit the growth of the germs that cause diarrhoea


 

Should stop giving solid foods in diaerrohea?

  1. No. If your child is six months or older, unless she is vomiting frequently, you can still give her solids.

  2. You could try foods such as bananas, rice, apple puree, and dry toast if your baby has recently started solids.

  3. For an older toddler you could try small amounts of chicken and starchy foods, such as mashed potatoes and pasta.

  4. But don't worry doesn't want to eat. It's more important that drinks to avoid dehydration


 

When should call the doctor?

Diarrhoea can be worrying if it lasts for more than a few hours, but it will usually clear up on its own. If your child has loose, watery stools for more than a couple of days, call your doctor


 

The biggest concern with diarrhoea is fluid loss, so don't delay in showing your pedatiaric if your baby shows these signs:

  1. Dry skin or lips

  2. Listlessness

  3. Tearless crying

  4. A sunken fontanelle

  5. Discoloured hands and feet

  6. Strong yellow motion

  7. Fewer wet nappies than usual


 

Shows the following secondary symptoms:

  1. Vomiting which lasts more than 24 hours

  2. Fever that lasts longer than 24 hours

  3. Refusal to drink

  4. Blood in motion

  5. A swollen tummy


 

How to decrease baby’s discomfort?

Cuddle and comfort as much as possible, and keep her dry. Use care and tenderness when changing nappies since it's easy for a baby's bottom to become sore with diarrhoea. Use a barrier cream to prevent irritation if the diarrhoea lasts more than a day.


 

How prevent baby from getting diarrhoea again?

Proper hygiene can help reduce the chance of diarrhoea, because the germs that cause it can be easily passed from hand to mouth. So wash your hands thoroughly with soap after handling soiled nappies or using the toilet.

Infant Colic And Treating With Homeopathy

Infant Colic And Treating With Homeopathy

Infantile colic and often indicated homeopathic remedies. It’s also referred as crying baby syndrome.

For anyone with a baby suffering from this problem, it’s a reality that causes significant distress to the infant as well as parents, carers and siblings. A specific cause is as yet unknown and the symptoms involve excessive crying for more than three hours per day for more than three days per week in an infant who is otherwise (clinically) well and thriving. The infant may also have abdominal distension, flatus, borborygmus, a flushed face, clenched fists, may draw their knees up or arch their back, as if in pain. Colic may develop in the early weeks of life, peaking at around 2-8 weeks of age and ceasing by around 12 to 16 weeks but may, in rarer cases, persist for up to 12 months.

The symptoms may occur at any time but more typically arise in the late afternoon or evening. While fewer than 5% of colicky infants are found to have an organic disease, it’s important to differentiate colic from other causes of excessive crying such as constipation, infantile migraine, dairy, soy or some other form of allergy (where these may be associated with an aggravation of symptoms), gastro-oesophageal reflux (which may itself be secondary to dairy or soy allergy), or lactose overload / malabsorption (indicated by frothy watery diarrhoea with perianal excoriation). Other causes of persistent crying may include early teething, urinary tract infection, otitis media or raised intracranial pressure. 
There are a number of symptoms that, when combined with excessive crying, indicate the need for timely medical attention- these include a change in bowel habits, an abnormal temperature, persistent abdominal distenstion, an increase in crying frequency or lethargy.

Very few medications, from allopathic medicine have consistently been found to be effective for colic, but found to have serious side effects. In mothers who are breastfeeding, a maternal hypoallergenic diet, avoiding dairy products, eggs, wheat, or nuts, may improve matters. The rapid acting and low-risk features of homeopathic medicines can make them ideal for use with infants suffering from colic, and following are some of the most frequently prescribed.

Colocynthis: This is one of the most commonly used first-aid medicines for colic. Characteristically, the colic will cause the child to bring the knees up to the chest. Child will be irritable easily angered. There may be co-existing gastro-intestinal bloating, green spluttery diarrhoea, vomiting and a coated tongue. 

Chamomilla: Chamomilla is also a common prescription here. The child in this case usually hot, thirsty, has red cheeks and wants to be carried, cries inconsolably and may angrily reject things that are offered. In colic the appearance is typically one of vomiting, an arched back, restlessness, anger, and the infant is often teething at the same time. The stools may be green and smell of rotten eggs and there may be great abdominal distension with small quantities of flatus being passed. 


Nux vomica: Nux is often associated with nervousness, irritability, anger, as well as hypersensitivity to noise and light. In this instance, colic may arise 1 to 2 hours after feeding, and may be accompanied by retching or vomiting, constipation, flatulent distension of the abdomen, hunger, coating at the back of the tongue, or a stuffy nose. 

Mag phos: The mag phos infant may appear restless, weak and lethargic. There may be muscular spasms or twitching, teething, thirst for cold drinks, belching, constipation, bloating and flatulent colic that causes the child to bend double. 

Dioscorea: In this instance the infant will normally appear to be in severe pain and will exhibit borborygmi. They may be thirstless and have a coated tongue, yellowish diarrhoea and will often belch offensive gas. They will commonly arch their back and may have a history of digestive weakness. 

Pulsatilla: The pulsatilla child is usually sensitive, gentle, weepy and thirstless, despite still wanting the comfort of the breast or bottle, and wants to be held or rocked. They’re frequently seen sleeping with their hands above their heads. Attacks of colic may be aggravated by emotional stress. 

Bryonia alba: Indicated when symptoms develop slowly, irritability, an abdomen sensitive to touch, dry mucous membranes, a yellowish or brown coated tongue, constipation or the passing of large, dry stools, lethargy and a thirst for large amounts of liquid. Food or drink may be vomited soon after consuming it and the infant usually dislikes being carried or raised.

Carbo vegetabilis: Carbo veg is a common prescription for colic pains associated with bloating, offensive belching, and offensive flatulence. The child may appear weak or listless with a puffy face, the rate of respiration is often increased, the tongue may be coated white or yellowish and the skin may feel cold and have a bluish hue. 

Ignatia: This is often indicated where the mother has unresolved grief. The infant in this case may exhibit hyper-acuity of the senses, may be easily excited, apprehensive, moody, rigid and nervous. 

Lycopodium: The lycopodium infant may appear to be thin, weak, anxious, sensitive and apprehensive. Symptoms are worse in the late afternoon or early evening, and better from motion and after midnight.

Lastly, potency and dosage and medicine depends on age of the baby symptomatology and few other factors. It should be taken only as prescribed by homeopathic practitioner only.
