Eye Test - How Vital Is It?

 Eye Test - How Vital Is It?

While an eye exam should be conducted for anybody at least every six months, many people do not believe it to be so important. However, there are benefits to having a comprehensive eye exam. But, what exactly are these benefits? Read below to know the benefits - 

1. Eye check-ups are indicative
To start with, when one goes for an eye exam, problems relating not just to the eyes can be discovered. As a matter of fact, an ophthalmologist or an eye specialist is quite often the first person to detect problems with the entire body. These problems include diabetes and hypertension. It can be said that a person who has healthy eyes is more likely than not to be in the pink of health! When a person has a health issue detected early by an eye doctor, it can result in easier treatment - more comfortable on the person as well as on the pocket! After all, why go through the pain of more expense before getting it addressed?

2. Catch your ailments early
It can be said that eye exams are very important for children as having bad eyesight which goes uncorrected can have some really serious consequences. The strain on the child’s eyes due to school work like staring at the board with weak eyes can cause very bad headaches and the situation gets worse. Children usually do not have a proper idea of what normal vision is like so they are more likely to not notice a decrease in the quality of vision. This really does increase the need for eye exams for them.

3. Eye exams are different from vision tests
Many people are of the opinion that getting their eyes checked is the same as having an eye exam. However, it is to be noted that this is not the same. A person who does not have advanced medical qualifications when it comes to the eyes usually conducts a vision test. This could be a nurse or an optometrist. They actually do not dig much further beneath the surface, so they miss out the critical bits!

4. Eye alignment matters
The truth is that only an eye doctor knows what exactly to look for when an eye exam is conducted. So what exactly does an eye doctor look for? Apart from early signs of glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, the eye doctor would look for strabismus. This refers to the alignment of the eyes. When the eyes are not properly aligned, depth perception suffers and this can cause serious damage, especially if a person drives.

Apart from these, the doctor would also look at how well one’s eyes work together and whether there are any age-related diseases.

Know The Benefits Of Slowing Down In Ever Changing Circumstances!

 Know The Benefits Of Slowing Down In Ever Changing Circumstances!

The pressing urge to do loads in a short time span, to plan life in a day, to see dreams unfurl into reality at the slightest of efforts inundates millions across the world. It is neither about the goals one set before oneself nor about rational expectations arising from the awareness of one's capabilities. The problem runs deeper. Happiness and health are two elemental factors discerning the quality of your life. Happiness is directly proportional to your personal health. Neglecting one will affect the other. The best way to cope in the given situation is to take a detour from the overriding rat race. While others are in a hurry, you must slow down and care to nurture your mind and body.

Take a look at the benefits of slowing down:-

1. It will give you ample time to interact - Moving out of your comfort zone in order to exchange ideas with colleagues or friends plays an eminent role in shaping your personality. Interaction provides a person with food for thought. Therefore slowing down a little will encourage a free flow of countless ideas.

2. It will encourage you to pursue a hobby - Hobbies keep you alive. You should take out time to pursue an interest. This is a tried and tested way of rekindling happiness in one's life.

3. It will make you attentive towards others - A fast life shelters you within its clutches. You fail to take note of the changes in and around you. Going slow will let you take care of your loved ones.

4. It will enable you to see your inimitability - Once you slow down, you'll find time to introspect and retrospect as well. A person can come to realize how unique he or she is in this vast scope of things.

5. It will improve your sex life - Dopamine is the chief chemical that regulates a person's sexual desires. Increased levels of stress can hamper the production of dopamine-making you negligent about sex. Taking an easy pace can add zest to your sex life.

6. It will keep your heart healthy - Being overly hyper about delay subjects you to the risk of heart diseases. You should never be frantic about plans; this can lead to high blood pressure or can even cause severe harm to your heart health.

Scaling & Polishing - How Can It Enhance Our Teeth?

Scaling & Polishing - How Can It Enhance Our Teeth?

What is scaling?
Over time, even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque (sticky, soft, bacteria-infected layer) and tartar (calcium) deposits build up on your teeth. Scaling removes the tartar and plaque with specialised equipment. Scaling effectively cleans up your teeth by using ultrasound to loosen the tartar and then using tools to scrape it off from the surface of the tooth.

What is polishing?
Polishing is done to remove excess plaque and remove stains. Scaling is always followed by polishing. Polishing also smoothes and shines the teeth to prevent plaque from building up again. It is either done by foam or fluoride gel treatment to reduce the possibility of tooth decay and sensitivity.

Why are they done?
Scaling and polishing are not only done for cosmetic reasons; they are also done for overall oral health. Excessive plaque and tartar buildup will eventually lead to the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive and multiply. The ultimate purpose of polishing and scaling is to clean the surface of the teeth so that the bacteria cannot attach to them and cause serious oral problems (such as gum disease). Also, scaling and polishing offer far better cleaning of your teeth than everyday brushing and flossing.

However, scaling and polishing is not a curative treatment. If your teeth have been damaged by cavities or other oral diseases, you need medical attention.

In fact, professionally, this treatment is called prophylactic treatment; and the word ‘prophylactic’ comes from prophylaxis, which is Greek for ‘to prevent disease’. Thus scaling and polishing is more of a preventive measure than a cure.

Do they hurt?
This process is essentially painless. Most of the people who undergo this treatment usually have the following experiences:

  1. Tickling sensation
  2. Coolness from the water used to clean the mouth
  3. Pressure during the scraping process (The dentist uses specialised tools to “scrape” the tartar deposits off the tooth’s surface).

My mother is 75 years and has been diagnosed with polycystic kidneys. Yesterday the doctor prescribed her nicardia xl 30 (@ 2 times/ day) to replace some others. This is to control her blood pressure. Grateful for your advise. Thanks manish.

Nicardia xl is one of the good drugs for bp control. She is already on 3 bp medications. Bp control has a very important role in delaying the progress of the kidney disease. The only issue is nicardia xl is usually prescribed once a day dosage and needs careful bp monitoring if high doses are given.

So the thing is this goon has extorted huge amount of money from my father and mentally, financially and emotionally has disturbed our family a lot. Has given death threats to our family thrice in the past 2 years. To make peace, my father gave him the property. In this time, I was so depressed and stressed out and impulsive as always, I went to facebook and created a fake id and abused this goon and told his relatives in direct message that this goon paid someone to rape his sister's cousin. I know that sounds way to immature but I just did it in impulsivity and have anger issues a lot. The thing is this goon just went to cyber crime and reported me and launched first information report. Now the thing since I have sent to his relatives about his actions, they have reported to 2-3 cities about me that I have done this. So do you think me being a borderline personality, clinically depressed, impulsive, insomniac, self gaming a lot from last 5 years can help me in anything over such a small criminal activity. Btw indian constitution proves this thing crime. Me attempting suicide thrice and since I self harm a lot, can I just show my prescription from a psychiatrist that am mentally very disturbed and a borderline and that why I just did it in impulsivity. Can you suggest me what to do, please? Does showing prescription of my mental illness of me being clinically depressed, insomniac and a borderline personality, have attempted suicide twice and I self harm a lot will help anything in this case? P.s we have done everything but police can do nothing about him since we do not have any proof but he has my proof of chat because facebook sent the ip address of my location.

You have so many problems yourself and you have now created one more. Anyway the intention was good but you should have been more discrete. You could use your mental ill-health as some justification and get away with it. So keep all documents, reports, prescriptions and papers handy to present as proof.

Scabies - Know Signs Of Them

Infestation on the skin caused by a tiny insect called Sarcoptes scabiei, which live on the skin up to 2 months, is called Scabies. Reproduction occurs on the surface of the skin and later they tunnel into the skin and lay eggs. This forms an extremely irritated, pimple-like rash structure on the skin.

Despite the fact that scabies can be troublesome, the infestation can usually be dealt with successfully. Treatment commonly comprises of drugs that eliminate the scabies parasites and their eggs. Since scabies is so infectious, specialists usually prescribe treatment for a whole gathering of individuals who come in successive contact with people having scabies.


 Typical symptoms such as rashes and intense itching, appear up to 6 weeks since the initial exposure. Infected sores, which may require additional treatment, are formed due to continuous scratching. Common sites for occurrence in babies are head, neck, face and hands while in adults, it occurs on the wrist, elbow, waist, penis, armpits, etc. The rash comprises of small blisters or pimple-like knocks which are the tunnel tracks of the mite apparent on the skin.

A more severe form of the condition, called crusted scabies may be developed in some people. This condition which is highly contagious is marked by thick crusts containing thousands of eggs and mites which developed on the skin. It usually occurs in people with weak immune systems. The mites are capable of overpowering the immune system and multiplying at a higher rate.


Typical treatment includes disposing of the infestation with medicine balms, creams, and moisturizers. It is advisable to apply the cream all over the body and at night, when the mites are active.
Amid the main week of treatment, it might appear as though the symptoms are worsening. Nonetheless, after the initial week, you'll see less tingling and you should have recovered by the fourth week of treatment.

Precautions should be taken to prevent re-infestation as the mites are capable of living up to 72 hours after being abolished from the body. All clothing must be washed with hot water (122F). This should be followed by drying of the items at a high temperature for half an hour. Finally, the dried items should be vacuumed.

My hair is getting white in age of 16-17 plzz help me out, tell me some home remedies.
Hi Lybrate user, Premature greying of hair may be due to several reasons - lack of nutrients, stress, faulty lifestyle, overuse of chemical based cosmetics are few reasons for this. avoid pickles, spices, oily, greasy food items, too much of Salt in food should be avoided. Start avle ka murabba daily. Also have a high protein rich diet e.g. Pulses, Dry fruits, Black gram, Ground nut etc, white of egg (if u eat egg). also oil your hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shampoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as Ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with Shirodhara with herbal oil and Nasyam therapy for at least 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that u may consult me privately over Lybrate. Consult privately for better guidance & medicines

My question is, can xanax cause such seizures and what should I do now apart from the medications? Thanks!

Symptoms associated with drug-induced seizures are similar to those of non–drug-related seizures. The majority of seizures induced by drugs present as generalized tonic-clonic seizures. While certain drugs are used to control seizures, others can induce seizures in patients without a preexisting seizure disorder. You may need to discuss your complete medical history in detailed to conclude the actual reason of your problem. You can connect over a video or audio call as per your convenience.

Oily Skin - Know The Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Oily Skin - Know The Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Homeopathy is a branch of traditional medicine that aims to cure diseases and disorders by focusing on causal factors. Homeopathic treatment comes to your aid for all your big and small problems alike. If you are part of the league that suffers from oily skin, homeopathy will be your answer. In most cases, oily skin doesn't lead to severe health issues, but it does cause inconvenience. It makes you feel sticky and smudgy, leading to a loss of confidence.

Homeopathic cures to keep oil on the skin at bay

Natrum Mur: A good homeopath will administer this medicine only after having inquired a litany of things about your constitution. A homeopathic preparation varies from person to person depending upon the constitution of their body.   If you have oily skin, you are prone to pore - clogging, acne, pimples and pockmarks. Natrum Mur efficiently deals with these problems. It helps in removing excess oil from the pores, making your skin glow at the same time. Prescription of this medicine is based on symptoms like inability to cope with difficulties, nervousness, intolerance to heat exposure, and an agitated disposition.

Psorinum: Your greasy skin often casts a shadow on your natural complexion. Oily skin makes you look exhausted at all times of the day. You can benefit from Psorinum as it deals with the overactive

sebaceous glands, cleans the pores of your skin, treats pimples and also fights dark patches. People who sweat profusely and suffer from body odor problems or people susceptible to cold are usually advised to take this medicine.

Silicea and Kali Bromatum: Excess oil secretion often leads to the development of pus containing acne or pimples. These pimples, when diminish, may leave permanent or long lasting marks on your face. Scars and marks further result in pigmentation. Such problems can take a huge toll on your psychological health, leading you to be overly concerned about the way you look or losing interest in self appearance. In this regard, Silicea and Kali Bromatum can work wonders for your oily skin and its resultant effects.

Berberis Aquifolium: No amount of make up can mar the appeal of clear skin. If you have oily skin, you are likely to face dullness. Since dirt easily settles on a greasy skin, it can make you look darker than usual. Berberis Aquifolium is an unparalleled medication in homeopathy that treats the above conditions without any side effects.
