Hello I suppose you're sure it's not urine? In order to find out, you could collect some, and ask a nurse to test it for you. Many women do leak a little 'pee' during sex – but this is much commoner among those who have had children The odds are that this liquid is: either normal vaginal 'love juices' provoked by sexual excitement. Or, the mysterious sex fluid which a small proportion of women squirt out at orgasm. Either way, I don't think you've got anything to worry about. But if you'd like further reassurance, why not go and get yourself checked out by a doctor who is experienced in sexual matters – for instance, at a genitourinary medicine (GUM) or Family Planning Clinic. Christine adds: One last thought. I'm not actually sure if this liquid only appears when you're very sexually excited, as you don't say. If it's not dependent on arousal, then it's just possible that it's bath water! Some women do find that after a bath, they sometimes leak from the vagina. You can check this more easily if you use some kind of fragrance in the water. Best wishes.

Bach Flower Remedies - How They Can Help?

Bach Flower Remedies - How They Can Help?

We all realize that a person's well being is a mix of physical and emotional health. It is never possible that a person suffering from major anxiety, depression, attention disorder, sleep disorders, stress, or mental trauma can have a perfectly normal physical health.  The Bach Flower remedies are one of the well-proven methods of healing one's emotional imbalances, helping mankind achieve happiness and joy.
Dr. Edward Bach discovered the benefits that flowering trees and plants can have on healing one's emotional problems.  These became extremely popular in the 1930s and help a person to positively deal with negative emotions and behavior patterns. The overall result is an improved well-being, both emotionally and physically, leading to overall happiness.

How it works: Dr. Bach discovered 38 flowers, each of them contributing in some way to the emotional well-being of a person. Each flower improves emotional negativity in some way. These 38 include some of the common ones like pine, mustard, oak, and walnut to rare ones like larch, rock rose, etc. Each flower is associated with an emotion. For instance, pine is associated with guilt, mustard with deep gloom for no reason, elm with overwhelmed feeling due to loaded responsibilities, etc.
Bach flower remedies, or BFRs as they are called, are solutions containing brandy and water.  Dr. Bach believed that dew found on the flower petals had preserved the healing properties of the plant and can be used to heal.  While the water contains extreme dilutions of this dew material, the brandy acts as a preservative.

There is a Bach questionnaire that needs to be answered.  This will help identify the right flower remedies needed for a particular person.  In a vast majority of cases, it would be a combination of 6 to 7 remedies that are combined to make a personalized combination.  Over a period of time, the negative emotions will be replaced with positive ones.  The safety and popularity of this remedy is so wide that children, elderly people, pregnant women, and even pets and plants have benefited from this.

How do you make your customized therapy?  Take an empty 30 mL bottle that has a dropper in the lid, which you can get at the local pharmacy store. To this, add two drops of each selected remedy. Alternately, you could also use 4 drops of the formula that is available pre-mixed, which works in most cases.  To this bottle with drops of the flower remedies, add plain, mineral water.  Take 4 drops of this at least 4 times every day.

This is an extremely popular and well-proven method of healing, with the Bach foundation continuing to propagate the teachings and remedy of Dr. Bach. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Bariatric Surgery - Aftercare Tips You Must Follow!

If you have taken the big decision to go ahead with bariatric surgery, one thing you need to prepare for well in advance is the additional effort that is required after the surgery to ensure it is a success. The results will be evident only after a few months post the surgery. This period requires your constant attention.

Listed below are some after-care measures that are essential for the success of a bariatric surgery.

  1. Hospital stay: Most patients are advised hospital stay for four days, during which the hospital staff will ensure the sleeve is working fine. No food is allowed for 48 hours. Diet is gradually advanced from water to clear liquids, about 50 ml to 100 ml and then to 150 ml.
  2. Wound care: Depending on whether a laparoscopic or open surgery was done, the number and location of incisions will vary. However, the wound should be maintained clean and it should be ensured that there is no infection of the site. Wound care should be done by the nursing staff if required. Suture removal, if required, should be done as per doctor’s advice.
  3. Pain management: Finish the course of antibiotics and pain killers to ensure infection is completely gone. Pain would continue, if the infection is not completely controlled.
  4. Diet: The first two weeks would be a completely liquid diet. The next two weeks will consist of a pureed diet. After these four weeks, solid foods will be introduced.

Foods to avoid after a bariatric surgery include anything with a higher protein content and anything that has too much oil as the stomach’s ability to digest these is reduced. Refrain from:

  1. Carbonated beverages
  2. Hard meat
  3. Nuts and seeds
  4. Fried foods

Food items to include post bariatric surgery include those which are easy on the stomach, including:

  1. Liquids such as soups, broth, juice and milk
  2. Pureed cooked vegetables and eggs
  3. Soft mashed food including meat and vegetables

Adherence to this will reduce complications. While eating, the patient should also remember to chew nicely, eat and drink slowly, increase water intake throughout the day, and avoid fats and sugar. It is advisable to eat three proper meals a day and avoid snacking during the day.

Remember that the need for bariatric surgery arose in the first place due to uncontrolled eating of oily food. After undergoing a bariatric surgery, diet pattern is definitely going to move to a healthier side with reduced fat and sugars. It is not an easy shift, but definitely required, if the surgery is to be a success. Imagine the new you and you will be able to do it! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Know About Acidity

Acidity is related to Heartburn and Gas formation in stomach. In acidity, acid reflux or Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), or more commonly known as 'Urdhvag Amalpitta' in ayurveda, there is a movement of gastric juices ( acid in nature) from the stomach into the lower part of esophagus. Ayurveda considers it to be caused by the aggravation of Pitta dosha. When Kapha is associated with this aggravated Pitta, the Acid starts climbing the oesophagus. This is exactly the hyperacidity for most of us and is translated widely as- Heartburn, Acid Reflux, Acid Brash etc.
