Hi lybrate-user, here is the answer to all your questions: 1. We determine a woman?s level of fertility based on her medical history, age, basal antral follicle count, day 3 follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) level. Collectively these factors give us a complete picture of a woman?s reproductive health; however, AMH testing is the most recent ovarian reserve test and generally considered to be the most reliable. AMH levels are measured by a simple blood test. Because AMH tests measure the protein as it secretes in to ovaries, it is not affected by estrogen and other hormones, and can therefore be tested at any point in the menstrual cycle and even in patients on birth control pills levels. Healthy women under 38 years old typically have AMH levels of 2.0 - 7.0 ng/ml. 2. There are alternative medicine options you can try to improve your ovarian reserve: / Yoga / Acupuncture / DHEA, 25 mg thrice a day. / Vit D3 (Calcipherol), 60000 IU, once a week for 10 weeks 3. Yes, your sperm count is normal. 4. Improving sperm motility through diet can be easy if you exactly know which food are rich of the following important nutrients: / Zinc: Eat foods rich in zinc like seafood, organic liver and lean cuts of red meat, plus nuts and grains. Zinc is a potent antioxidant mineral that aids in sperm quality and motility and is a very important asset in the production of testosterone. / Selenium - Eat foods rich in selenium like organic eggs, brewer's yeast, brazil nuts, garlic and seafood. Selenium is essential in sperm formation and development. Scientific studies have shown how high selenium in the diet is directly related to improved sperm motility because selenium is an mineral antioxidant that is naturally present in the spermatic fluids to protect sperm. It concentrates in the testicles and is lost through seminal fluid through ejaculation. / L-Carnitine - Eat foods rich in L-carnitine like lean cuts of meat, dairy products, artichokes, beet greens, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, and garlic. L-carnitine is present in seminal fluid and is directly related to sperm count and motility. / Maca - Eat Maca root as a supplement. Maca supports healthy hormonal levels and increases male fertility and sex performance. / Coenzyme Q10 (Ubuquinone) - Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant important in mitochondrial performance and found in seminal fluid and seminal plasma. CoQ10 has been found to improve sperm count and motility on asthenozoospermia. / N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) - NAC reduces oxidative stress caused by free radicals preventing the damaging effects on sperm health. NAC treatment is so effective in improving sperm motility because it increases serum antioxidant capacity and decreased oxidative stress. 5. Here are a few non medicinal ways for ED: / Eat Lots of Carbs: To have a massive erection for a long time, your body needs good amount of nutrients. Loading your body with carbohydrates is one of the best ways to have sex multiple times with your partner. Thus, choose foods which are rich in carbohydrates like pasta and bread. / Zinc is also essential: Consumption of foods rich in zinc will help to produce testosterone, seminal fluid and sperm, which is vital to have a strong and long erection. The best zinc sources are seafood, peas and beans. / Avoid fatty foods: If you want to make your partner go insane, then stay off fatty meals before sex. Fatty foods and excess fat consumption will lower the testosterone level in the body, which will further decrease your libido, and make erection and ejaculation difficult to occur. / Start with foreplay: Most men fail to understand the importance of foreplay. Spending sufficient amount of time with foreplay helps to warm your little shooter before intercourse. Thus, always spend some time in foreplay before thinking about penetration. / Do some exercise: Men who are active tend to have better sex life, because it helps to increase your sex drive, sexual potency, reduces stress and enhances testosterone production in the body. To have a better erection, you can also try penis workout like the famous kegel exercise. / Avoid tight undergarments: If you love tight outfits, then throw them away for the love of good sex life. Wearing tight underwear or tight garments can reduce the blood flow towards the penile tissues, which can hamper your erection. Thus, choose loose or airy undergarments always. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Does onion paste helps in recovery of hair? Bcoz I am suffering from hair loss and both side on the head almost gone .does it worth to use it? If yes then how to use it?

Does onion paste helps in recovery of hair? Bcoz I am suffering from hair loss and both side on the head almost gone ...
The hair shaft is made of a hard protein called keratin and is made in three layers. This protein is actually dead, so the hair that you see is not a living structure. If onion can penetrate the layers of hair, which I suspect they don't, it might help with the issue of hairloss. I would recommend you to visit your local homeopath.

Drink plenty of water. Your kidneys need it to move waste through your system. Get plenty of antioxidants. Fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants can help protect your cells from the damage heavy metals can cause. Vitamin C and E are especially powerful antioxidants for protecting against the oxidative damage from heavy metals. Get enough fiber. Fiber helps move food through your system, reducing the risk that you?ll absorb the heavy metals. Get enough glutathione. It?s an antioxidant that helps protect against heavy metal toxicity. A 2004 study showed that it glutathione (GSH) protected the liver when exposed to things like mercury and chromium. Good sources of this nutrient include fresh (not cooked) fruits and vegetables, particularly asparagus, broccoli, avocados, squash, and spinach. You can also try supplements of N-Acetyl Cystein (NAC) and alpha lipoic acid.

Peyronie's Disease - How It Can Be Treated Naturally?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine & Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Peyronie's Disease - How It Can Be Treated Naturally?

Peyronie’s disease is a disorder that occurs due to the development of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis, which usually causes injury to the penis. Men who have a penis which is severely bent are considered to have Peyronie’s disease. The men suffering from Peyronie’s disease may also experience painful erection which in turn may affect the sexual health and performance.

What causes Peyronie’s disease?
The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease is still unknown; however, it is believed that it may be a result of repetitive injury to the penis. People with family history of Peyronie’s disease are at a higher risk for developing the same. Aging is also believed to contribute to the development of the disease.

Symptoms of Peyronie’s disease
The symptoms of the Peyronie’s disease may appear gradually or suddenly and the main symptoms include the following:

  1. Erectile dysfunction
  2. Scar tissue
  3. Pain in the penis
  4. Shortening of the penis

The penile pain is felt by men without or with an erection. It takes about 1 to 2 years for the pain to reduce during erections, but the curvature remains. In very rare cases, the pain associated with the Peyronie’s disease and curvature improve without any treatment.

Effective natural herbal treatments for Peyronie’s disease

Castor oil: Apply castor oil on the penis, particularly on the scar tissue and the plaque spots. The oil liquefies and softens the hard tissues and works effectively for the sufferers. The remedy takes about 12 weeks for the improvement and to completely straighten the penis. The result may vary from individual to individual. Also, it may take between 2-3 weeks until you see a difference in the appearance of the penis. Ensure you buy castor oil from a good brand and massage a small amount of the oil on the affected area. Then put a cotton bandage on it. Apply the oil every night at bedtime for best results.

Acetyl-L-carnitine: One can use carnitine supplements as they are very effective and safe for treating Peyronie’s disease. You can purchase Acetyl-L-carnitine from health food stores. This has proven to be more effective than the counterparts available in the market. The dosage for the supplement is provided on the bottle. 

Gotu Kola: Use herbs like Gotu Kola as they help decrease the problems related to the formation of fibrous tissue below the skin. The herb is useful in the treatment of the curvature of the penis. It is made available in the form of an ointment, capsule, and tincture. Some of the common side-effects associated with the consumption of gotu kola include headache, dizziness, upset stomach, and nausea. This herb in some cases can also interact with certain diabetes and cholesterol-lowering medications. Therefore, it is always advised to consult a specialist before using gotu kola for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease.

The prevalence of Peyronie’s disease occurs in men over the age of 55.It is always better to see the doctor if the curvature of the penis stops you from having sex and causes a lot of pain. For a holistic treatment of your problem, consult here.

Top 10 Foods To Prevent Dementia and Alzheimer s

Here are 10 foods you should add into your diet that can help improve your mind:

1. Leafy greens. Some ideas: kale, spinach, collard and mustard greens. These foods are high in folate and b9, which improve cognition and reduce depression.

2. Cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, brussels sprouts and kale contain folate and have cartenoids that lower homo-cysteine (an amino acid linked with cognitive impairment).

3. Beans and legumes. These foods contain more folate, iron, magensium and potassium that can help with general body function and neuron firing. They also contain choline, a b vitamin that boosts acetylcholine (a neuro transmitter critical for brain function).

4. Whole grains. Good bets include quinoa, kammut and gluten-free oats (not bread and cereal)

5. Berries and cherries. These fruits contain anthocyanin that protects the brain from further damage caused by free radicals. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and contain antioxidants and lots of vitamin c and e.

6. Pumpkin, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots and beets. These vegetables, if not overcooked, contain vitamin a, folate and iron that help with cognition.

7. Omega 3s. People whose diets contain daily omega 3s have been shown to have 26% less risk of having brain lesions that cause dementia compared with those who do not. These fatty acids help the brain to stay in top shape. You can get your omega fatty acids from fish, flax seeds, olive oil (not safflower) or by taking a good quality omega 3 supplement.

8. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and pecans. All of these nuts contain omega-3s and omega-6s, vitamin e, folate, vitamin b6 and magnesium.

9. Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. These seeds contain zinc, choline and vitamin e.

10. Cinnamon, sage, tumeric and cumin. Theses spices can all help to break up brain plaque and reduce inflammation of the brain which can cause memory issues.

Do you know that kidney stones can be effectively treated using homeopathy?

Do you know that kidney stones can be effectively treated using homeopathy?

The kidney is a vital organ that regulates the levels of fluids, minerals, salts, and other such substances in our body and when this balance gets disrupted, it results in the formation of Kidney stones. This problem is medically known as Nephrolithiasis and can cause pain when the stone moves about the urinary tract.

Types of Kidney Stones
There are several types of kidney stones and knowing the same can help in determining the cause and offer a valuable insight into how to get rid of them. The common variants of kidney stones are:

  1. Calcium stones- This is the most common type of kidney stones which are usually found in the form of calcium oxalate. It is a natural substance available in foods and also produced daily by the liver. Certain fruits, nuts, vegetables, and chocolate have high oxalate content. High doses of vitamin D, metabolic disorders, and intestinal bypass surgery can increase the concentration in the urine.
  2. Struvite stones- This type of kidney stones form in response to infection, and they can grow fast and become large in size within a short span of time with few or no symptoms.
  3. Cysteine stones- When a person has a hereditary disorder causing the kidneys to give out too much of amino acids or cystinuria, then cysteine stones start forming.
  4. Uric acid stones- When a person does not drink enough amount of water or lose too much fluid or eat a high amount of protein on a regular basis then he or she may have uric acid stones.

Causes and Risk Factors
Kidney stones tend to have no definite or a particular cause even though numerous risk factors can surge the risks. Kidney stones are formed when the urine contains an excessive amount of crystal-forming substances including uric acid, oxalate, and calcium. Also, when urine lacks the crucial substances which may prevent the crystals from sticking together, the formation of kidney stones can occur.

A person with a family history of this problem is likely to have kidney stones. Other risk factors include dehydration, certain diets, obesity, digestive diseases, surgeries, and other medical conditions such as renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, and hyperparathyroidism.

Lifestyle changes recommended to improve the situation
Lifestyle changes can indeed dramatically reduce the occurrence of kidney stones.

  1. Drinking more fluids can reduce the recurrence of stones by 40% and risk is reduced by 80%. Also, the urinary system is healthy and is flushed out of toxic chemicals.
  2. Follow a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
  3. Reduce salt, sugar, and animal protein.
  4. Limit the consumption of foods with high oxalate content. If you have calcium oxalate stones restrict foods rich in oxalates like beets, okra, spinach, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate, black pepper and soy products.

How Homoeopathy is beneficial to break down Kidney stones? 

Although Kidney stones are considered a case of surgery, but with Homoeopathic medicines we can break down and dissolve Kidney stones and help to pass the dissolved stone without surgical intervention. Not only does Homoeopathy treat Kidney stones, it also has shown remarkable results in treating the recurrent tendency towards formation of kidney stones. Homoeopathic medicines beneficial to treat kidney stones are: Lycopodium, Berberis.vulgaris, Sarsaparilla, Cantharis and Hydrangea to name a few.

Air Pollution: Its Effects on Health And Role of Homeopathy in Air Pollution Related Diseases

Air is the Most Essential Thing

Air is a mechanical mixture of gases, and the most essential thing for an organism to survive. It normally contains Nitrogen (78%), Oxygen (21%), Carbon dioxide and other gases in proportion. In addition to these gases, air also contains water vapour, traces of ammonia and suspended matter such as dust, bacteria, spores, and vegetable debris, etc.

Apart from supplying the life-giving oxygen, air and atmospheric conditions serve several functions.  The human body is cooled by the air contact; special senses of hearing and smell function through air-transmitted stimuli; disease agents are conveyed by air.

The term “air pollution” denotes the presence of substances (e.g. gases, mixtures of gases and particulate matter) in the ambient surroundings, generated by the activities that interfere with the human health, safety or comfort, and is injurious to organisms, and other environmental media. It also results in chemicals entering the food chain, drinking water and thereby, adding substantial disease burden and affecting the quality of life.  The problem of air pollution was first recognized about 500 years ago when the burning of coal in cities was increasing, and since then it is increasing at an alarming rate all over the globe.

During foggy weather, when little wind is present the smoke generated from pollution is mixed with fog and form “SMOG”

The smog is making it difficult for people to see and breathe. 

 

Types

  1. Personal air exposure: refers to exposure to dust, fumes and gases to which an individual is exposed directly or indirectly, eg. Smoking.
  2. Occupational air exposure: exposure to harmful concentration of aerosols, vapors, and gases in working environment.
  3. Community air exposure:  This is most serious, complex, consists of varieties of assortment of pollution sources, meteorological factors, and wide variety of adverse social, economic, and health effects.

 

Air Pollutants

Till date more than 100 substances have been identified which pollute the air. These vary from place to place depending upon the specific complex of contaminant source. Following are few examples of primary and secondary air pollutants:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Sulphur dioxide
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Particulate matter
  • Lead
  • Benzen
  • Ozone
  • PAN (peroxy acetyl nitrate)
  • Photochemical smog
  • Aerosols and mists: Sulphuric acid  (H2SO4), Nitric acid (HNO3)

Indoor Air Pollution

  • Indoor air pollution is one of the four most critical global environmental problems.
  • It exposes more people worldwide to important air pollutants than pollution in outdoor air.
  • Rural people in developing countries may receive as much as two-thirds of the global exposure to particulates.
  • Women and children suffer the greatest exposure.

Sources of Indoor Pollution

  • Indoor air pollution contributes to acute respiratory infections in young children, chronic lung disease, and cancer in adults, and may induce adverse pregnancy outcomes.
  • Non-smoking women exposed to indoor coal smoke have a risk of lung cancer similar to that of men who smoke lightly.

Effects on Health

Air pollution has short term and long term effects. The direct effects are reflected in airway system and then spread to multi-systems. It ranges from:

  • Upper and lower respiratory tract infections (acute and chronic)
  • Acute and recurrent bronchitis
  • Acute respiratory distress
  • Asthmatic attacks
  • Aggravation of pre-existing respiratory and heart disease.
  • Lung cancer

The short term and long term exposure is also linked with short life expectancy and reduced quality of life.

Effects of specific pollutants

General Management

Glutathione Skin Whitening: Does It Really Work?

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Glutathione Skin Whitening: Does It Really Work?

Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants in our body. This is gaining traction in terms of skin whitening treatment and achieve the desired pigmentation. With very less to no side-effect, Glutathione skin whitening is by far the most chosen whitening treatment. It is tropically administered through whitening pill or Glutathione cream.

The skin whitening efficacy:

There has been a widespread debate about the effectiveness of skin whitening treatment through glutathione. As per a study conducted by the NCBI, it was found that a period of 4 weeks of Glutathione treatment among a small number of participants exhibited positive results. There are a couple of ways in which Glutathione pills helps to whiten the skin. Glutathione ties up with Tyrosinase and blocks the pathway of the enzyme to produce melanin. The latter is the pigment that is responsible for skin color in the body. The second way in which Glutathione helps in skin whitening is by halting the activation of Tyrosinase. It does so by cutting down the free radicals in the body. It is the free radicals that produce tyrosinase in the first place. The latter in turn is responsible for an increased melanin count in the body.

Skin health and Glutathione:

There are many Glutathione pills out there. It is important to choose the right one for effective results. A Glutathione supplement containing compounds such as Liposomal Glutathione, acetyl glutathione, and L- glutathione etc. can not only enhance the complexion of the skin but improves skin health and quality.

Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant present in every cell of the human body. It helps in removing toxic, heavy metal, free radicals in the body. If not for this compound, the body cell cannot detoxify properly and there is a high likelihood of cell damage. Apart from this Glutathione supplement can effectively minimize the age spots and remove the signs of aging. It is equally beneficial in removing wrinkles, dark spots and other spot marks present in the body.

What to expect from this form of skin treatment?

Although this form of skin white treatment works without a shadow of a doubt. It is wise not to expect dramatic results overnight. The supplement or the cream takes a while to show the result. Since it binds with the internal hormone, the changes might take a while to show the results. After a couple of months, one can expect healthier and fairer skin. The body will also be free from harmful and chemical toxins. It is advised that a skin specialist or a medical professional is consulted before starting the pills or cream. If a person is undergoing skin medication, it might have to be stopped for a while.
