Picture-Perfect Skin - How To Attain It?

Picture-Perfect Skin - How To Attain It?

The radiant, glowing skin that stares at us from the billboards and hoardings may be extremely artificial, but it definitely absorbs in us a desire to achieve better skin. This is not restricted to just young girls, but also adults refusing to accept the changes that age brings with it. Many want to look younger far younger than their ages.

While there is no trick that will do the magic, there are definitely some things to follow which can help you achieve a picture-perfect skin:

  1. Laser resurfacing: The top layers of the skin need to make way for the fresh layers, which grow from below. This keeps the skin fresh and young in appearance. However, when there is too much of old skin at the top, it ends up appearing dull and lifeless. Laser resurfacing uses a beam of laser where the top layers are removed and the underlying layers are stimulated, so fresh skin is produced. This will need to be repeated at regular intervals.
  2. Chemical peels: Though the concept remains the same as above, chemicals are used to remove the top layers instead of a laser. This could, for instance, include salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc. The mild acids induce as well as irritate the skin. They are, however, naturally present in the skin and therefore preferred sometimes.
  3. Botox: This prevents ageing by relaxing the facial nerve endings. When the brain does not receive a signal from the skin, it continues to remain as is (minus the ageing). This is a huge trend and many people swear by this. This is especially useful in women who want to curtail the ageing effects including crow’s feet, and fine lines at the nose and forehead. These need to be repeated at regular intervals.
  4. Vampire facelift: The platelet-rich plasma, an elixir extracted from your own blood studded with millions of growth factors when injected into your skin, gives younger looking lifted and radiant skin with less wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of ageing.
  5. Spider vein treatment: If you have spider veins or small veins on your face that are thought to be unsightly, this could be the answer.

In addition to all the above procedures, the following tips never go out of trend and always provide great results:

  1. Keep the skin clean – never go to sleep with makeup on
  2. Regularly exfoliate the skin
  3. Use sunscreen adequately to minimize damage from the sun.
  4. Adequately moisturize the skin to avoid dryness
  5. Use natural products like turmeric, milk cream, lime, honey, fruit packs
  6. Eat fresh vegetables and fruits
  7. Avoid oily, junk, processed foods
  8. Exercise well
  9. Ensure a good night’s sleep

Sleep Disorders - How To Handle Them In Children?

Sleep Disorders - How To Handle Them In Children?

Sleep problems, which can be defined as a sleeping pattern where the parents are unsatisfied, are one of the leading concerns of parents. Children should get a minimum of nine hours of sleep so that their health and brain development can occur. Sleep problems can affect not only their health but also their social and school life. Any interruption or abnormality in a child's sleeping patterns should be examined by a doctor and parents should make necessary efforts for knowing the actual causes of sleep interruption of their kids.

What are the causes of sleep disorders in children?

  1. Injuries and accidents
  2. Behavioural troubles
  3. Overeating
  4. Slow-reaction times
  5. Performance problems
  6. Mood problems
  7. Learning, concentration and memory troubles

Commonest signs of sleep troubles in kids:

  1. Difficulty in falling asleep
  2. The occurrence of unusual events at the time of sleeping like nightmares or sleep-walking
  3. Snoring and breathing pauses
  4. Difficulty in staying awake in daylight
  5. Daytime performances can be adversely affected

Best methods for dealing with sleep disorders in children:

  1. Regular bed-timing should be sincerely maintained at night.
  2. Relaxing routine for bedtime needs to be followed, including story-book reading, getting a warm bath and others.
  3. Noise in the house, especially at night, should be minimized so that unwanted disturbances can be eliminated.
  4. If the room temperature is pretty comfortable, then your kids can sleep peacefully.
  5. Giving caffeine in excess quantity, especially before sleeping, should be reduced otherwise the kids will not sleep well.
  6. Meals should not be provided just before bedtime; rather they should be taken a few hours before sleeping.
  7. If your kids are so very addicted to different electronic gadgets or devices like telephones, televisions, computers and others, then they might face sleeping troubles. Thus, it is your duty to keep your kids away from this kind of addiction.
  8. If your kids are too very tired, then do not keep them awake forcibly; rather you should make them sleep immediately so that they can get a relaxed sleep at night.

If you think that sleep disorder has become a serious issue with your kids as well, then nothing can be a better option than consulting any health physician. They can best analyse the underlying cause of this issue with your kids.

Excessive Sleepiness - Is It A Psychiatric Disorder?

Excessive Sleepiness - Is It A Psychiatric Disorder?

Hyper somnolence or hypersomnia is a condition that leads to constant daytime fatigue and drowsiness as well as prolonged night time sleeps. In this condition, the patient will usually go through repeated bouts of sleep, which he or she will not be able to resist without proper treatment and intervention. This condition makes patients take naps throughout the day even after a long and unhindered sleep throughout the night. Patterns of excessive drowsiness will begin to set in at the most inopportune times including meal times and even in the middle of a conversation. While there is no scientifically or medically proven cause for the onset of this ailment, it is known to affect adolescents more than adults. Read on to know more about the symptoms and treatment of this condition.

Symptoms: The patients suffering from this condition will experience a variety of other symptoms in addition to the constant state of drowsiness. These symptoms include anxiety, which may even go to a severe level if it is not treated properly and on time. Also, the patient may experience restlessness and a sense of increased irritation even in the most normal, everyday situations due to a perceived lack of sleep and constant state of drowsiness. Loss of appetite and hallucinations may also begin to plague patients who suffer from this condition on a chronic and prolonged basis without proper treatment. Slow thinking and slow speech are other symptoms that will start to set in with time as well.

Social Situations: In many social and personal situations, the patient may begin to lose basic functionality because of the constant urge to sleep. The patient’s interactions on a social platform may begin to deteriorate due to the lack of coherent thinking and speaking as well as the sense of irritability and restlessness displayed.

Medication: In most cases, it is best to go about this condition by treating the symptoms with medication prescribed by a doctor. The doctor may prescribe stimulant medication that will help in keeping the system awake for longer periods at a time. The doctor will also stress on the time of the day when these must be ingested so that nighttime sleep is not affected in any way. These medicines include amphetamines, which are usually prescribed for patients suffering from ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This medicine is usually given in controlled doses so as to keep the patient alert for longer periods of time. Other medicines include clonidine, antidepressants, bromocriptine, monoamine oxidase inhibitors and levodopa.

Therapy: Behavioural therapy is also known to make a marked difference in such cases, which helps in regulating and normalizing sleep patterns.

I am currently taking thyrox 50 mcg for past 2 months. And I just got checked for tsh level of 6.06. Also taking medicine for sinus and asthma ventidox dl and fluticasone nasal spray. Should I increase my dose of thyroid?

Hhello, thanks for the query. When one is on adequate dosage of levothyroxine, tsh is maintained arounf 3 to 4 mu/l, at which most of the symptoms are in check. Since tsh is 6.06 mu/l, it is showing that there is a need to increase the dosage. Hence, increase the dosage by 12.5 mcg to 62.5 mcg per day and then check tsh after 6 weeks to see if the desired level is achieved. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

Your temperature is well within the normal range. I however suggest that you go for counseling too and learn some skills to handle anxiety, which is a fear based reaction. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: the former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality development course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Holes In The Heart - How To Resolve It?

Holes In The Heart - How To Resolve It?

Many children are born with Atrial Septal Defect, a condition which is popularly known as holes in the heart. It is a major concern for most parents, but, thankfully it can be treated very easily. None of the parents want their child to undergo hospitalization and the resulting pain that treatments might incur. However, the good news is all kinds of heart holes do not need to be closed by surgery at all. Many a time the holes are filled over time naturally and the child only needs to be under medical observation that’s all.

Catheter Procedure
In case a surgery needs to be performed, given the hole(s) in your child’s heart is medium to large sized, the surgeon makes sure that the procedure is painless. One of the commonest surgeries is one that involves the use of a catheter. Here, a catheter is attached to an umbrella-shaped device (a disk) and the apparatus is inserted through the groin region. The device is designed to reach your child’s heart and attach a disk to the hole, thereby filling it. When the process reaches completion the catheter is taken out of the body. The good thing about this surgery is that by six months natural tissues grow over the surgical site and re-operation is not required.

Open Heart Surgery
Another type of surgery that is performed to treat Atrial Septal Defect is open heart surgery. This is only carried out only when the condition is serious. In this surgery too, the child is given medications that allow him/her to sleep throughout the procedure. Using a bypass machine the surgeons opens the heart and while the surgery is on, this machine imitates the pumping of the heart. The surgeon then uses a patch like a device to seal off the hole(s). Post surgery the child is discharged from the hospital within a week. There will be some guidelines that the concerned doctor might acquaint you with pertaining to the post-treatment care of the child. He/she might prepare a diet chart for your child.

Ventricular Septal Defect
Ventricular Septal Defect is a condition where a hole develops around the wall which separates the lower chambers of the heart. In most cases, the hole closes in on its own. If the hole is medium or large sized, surgery will be performed. With surgery, your child would go back to leading a normal life. It is just that you need to take special care of his/her diet. The doctor might recommend foods that are high in calories. Make sure you follow the doctor’s advice properly and watch your child going back to bounding and playing like other children in no time.

Hair Fall - How Homeopathy Can Reduce It?

Loss of hair from the scalp, one of the most common problems plaguing the world today, can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, disorders and environmental factors. There are a number of homeopathic treatments that are used to treat hair loss. These treatments focus on the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. 

Hair loss can be classified as -

1. Telogen effluvium: This is a disorder of the hair growth cycle where the telogen phase (where the hair falls out) becomes dominant. 

2. Alopecia aorta: This is an autoimmune disorder where the immune cells of the body destroy the hair. Hair loss tends to occur in patches.

3. Androgenic alopecia: This type of disorder is caused by hormonal and genetic factors resulting in a receding hairline. 

The various homeopathic treatments for hair loss are -

1. Silica
Silica is used to treat a number of diseases in homeopathy. Besides being an effective remedy for hair loss, it is also treating symptoms of vitiligo, nail problems and eczema.

2. Phosphorus

3. Kaliumcarbonicum
This treatment is used for brittle and thinning hair as it enhances hair growth. It is usually recommended for people with various forms of alopecia.

4. Lycopodium
This treatment is prescribed for people who suffer from premature balding. It is also recommended for pregnant women if they suffer from hair loss.

5. Natrummuriaticum
This homeopathic remedy is made from sodium chloride and used to treat hair problems resulting from skin complications. It is also recommended for women who face hair loss from menstrual problems. It treats dandruff and hair disorders due to hormonal imbalances.
