Borderline Personality Disorder - Causes And Symptoms

Borderline Personality Disorder - Causes And Symptoms

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental illness. A patient suffering from BPD maintains unstable relationships with other people, shows inappropriate emotional reactions and possesses suicidal or self-harm tendencies. It is purely a personality disorder caused due to multiple factors. Patients suffering from BPD may find it difficult to stay alone. They fear abandonment and loneliness. Yet they have a tendency of showing mood swings, sudden emotional outburst or anger and hostility. This prevents them from having a long lasting relationship in life.

It usually starts affecting the patient's life from early adulthood. It however seems to improve with age. The patient also has distorted self-image. He or she is unclear about what they want from life or what they are in reality. Even minor incidents can trigger intense reactions in people with BPD.

Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder:

The signs of suffering from BPD are listed below:

  1. Intense and frantic effort to avoid abandonment or loneliness
  2. Unstable relationships with people and changing the attitude towards them drastically. It can change from being in immense love with each other to intense hatred.
  3. Developing paranoid thoughts and having dissociative feelings-The patient often lacks the feeling of self and suffers from identity crisis.
  4. Suicidal feelings and attempts
  5. Tendency to cause self harm or destruction by drug abuse, driving irresponsibly or be having unprotected sex
  6. Reflecting intense depression
  7. Chronic boredom
  8. Sudden anger and hostility

Causes for Borderline Personality Disorder: Borderline Personality Disorder can be caused due to multiple reasons. Usually it has been found by researchers that it occurs to patients who have had a disturbed childhood. Complex and unpleasant happenings in the childhood may leave a deep impact on the patient's personality, which comes back as a disorder in his or her early adulthood. From mental, physical to sexual abuse in the childhood can lead to this condition in adults.

Besides, researchers have discovered recently that this illness has hereditary links. Some genes may be responsible for BPD. Improper functioning of the brain is also another factor. Especially, the portion of brain that controls emotions might not be functioning properly in co-ordination with other parts of it.

Diagnosis: There is no particular clinical test that can diagnose BPD. It can be diagnosed by a series of interactive session with the patient by a psychiatrist.

Treatment:  The treatment of BPD involves three steps- psychotherapy, medications and support from peer and family. Dialectical Behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy are used in treating the patient. There are no specific medicines to cure identity crisis, boredom and loneliness. However, other symptoms like mood swings, depression and anxiety can be treated with anti-depressants and mood stabilizers. Antipsychotic drugs are also helpful to a certain extent. In extreme cases, hospitalization may be needed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

4 Effects Of Being Out Of Shape On Sexual Life

4 Effects Of Being Out Of Shape On Sexual Life

It is very important to take care of your physical well-being as it may have a direct relationship with your sexual performance. Having unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits can put you out of shape sexually, emotionally and physically.

Here's how being out of form can affect your sex life:

  • It can affect your confidence levels - Problems with your body weight can seriously affect your confidence levels, and consequently your sex life. Being confident of yourself and what you do is vital for having great sex. Issues with your confidence and a negative perception of yourself can make you feel inadequate, thereby causing problems in your sex life.
  • It can suck out all your energy - In order for you to enjoy or have longer sex sessions, you need to be at your fittest levels. Being overweight or not in shape can prevent you from enjoying the sexual activity or sustaining the session as you would be all out of energy.
  • It can affect your thoughts - Getting caught up in thoughts about your weight or what is going on in the mind of your partner can have a serious impact on your sexual performance. In fact, your weight can hamper the healthy thoughts that may form during these moments that you share with your partner. Ideally, your thoughts should be focused on the act so that you're able to fully enjoy the activity.
  • It can affect what you experience - Your weight issues can hamper your ability to have quality sex and cause you to have short sessions. The quality of what you experience with your partner can get affected if you lack confidence and don't focus on what is happening in front of you. More importantly, one shouldn't mistake quality sex as the number of sex positions known or the duration of the activity. Quality sex takes place only when both the partners enjoy the act and derive maximum pleasure and satisfaction out of it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Healthy Foods - How They Can Keep Your Heart Health In Check?

Healthy Foods - How They Can Keep Your Heart Health In Check?

Cholesterol is generally regarded as something bad for the health. As a part of diet, everyone tries to avoid anything that has cholesterol in it. What needs to be understood is that not all cholesterol is bad. There is also good cholesterol, which is actually very essential for body functions. This is required for the production of essential hormones. Inadequate amounts of good cholesterol can lead to problems ranging from simple hormonal imbalances to severe issues like infertility.

The following are some food items, which contain sufficient amounts of good cholesterol and should find a place in your plate. They are essential for various body functions including hormone formation.

  1. Avocado oil: Most oil is considered bad, but avocado oil contains about 70% of good cholesterol and should be used for its heart-healthy benefits. Being a great antioxidant, it protects the heart by reducing inflammation and by improving blood pressure. Eating whole avocado is also beneficial for the heart and the body as a whole.

  2. Buckwheat: This whole grain is rich in many vitamins, quite a few minerals, and is a good provider of dietary fiber. It is also gluten-free and is rich in antioxidants, making it extremely cardio-friendly.

  3. Soy: Too much saturated fat in the diet cannot be digested and the liver converts these and stores it, which adds to obesity. Soy which is a good replacement for animal fat and even dairy products can help improve cholesterol levels and prevent fat accumulation.

  4. Salmon: This is one of the most heart-friendly food items, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and good cholesterol. It lowers triglyceride levels and provides a good amount of protein for the body.

  5. Spinach: The cholesterol which settles against the blood vessels is washed off by consuming spinach – in regular quantities at regular intervals. It is also the richest source of lutein, which is known as guardian against aging diseases including hypertension.

  6. Go the nutty way: While most would consider nuts as rich in oils, truth is they are loaded with good cholesterol. Therefore, whether it is almonds or pecans, ground nuts or walnuts, nuts are great for the heart. They are also rich in minerals including calcium, copper, magnesium, and potassium and contain various vitamins. So about a teaspoon of chopped nuts should be on your plate on any given day.

  7. Dark chocolate: Again, like nuts, most of us tend to avoid chocolate, but these restrictions are only for the white ones with sugar. The dark one is extremely healthy for the heart with loaded antioxidants, which prevents clogging of arteries. It is also rich in flavonoids, which are useful in controlling blood pressure and other heart diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Diabetes Diet Chart in hindi - मधुमेह आहार चार्ट

भारत में डायबिटीज के मरीजों की संख्या हर रोज बढ़ रही हैं। लगभग हर 5 भारतियों में से 2 भारतीय को डायबिटीज की समस्या हैं। देखा जाए तो डायबिटीज खुद कोई भयानक बीमारी नही है बल्कि यह आपने बाद धीरे धीरे विभिन्न बीमारियों को न्योता देकर शरीर के अलग अलग अंगों नुकसान पहुंचाती है। जैसे हम आसानी से देख सकते हैं कि शुगर के रोगी को आंखों व किडनी के रोग, सुन्नपन आना जैसी समस्याएं हो सकती हैं।

डायबिटीज को कण्ट्रोल करने के लिए जितना महत्त्व दवा और व्यायाम का है उतना ही महत्व आहार या डाइट का हैं। माना जाता है कि डायबिटीज के मरीज नॉर्मल रुटीन लाइफ नहीं जी सकते इसलिए उन्हें एकदम स्ट्रिक्ट डाइट लेना चाहिए।  
इन्सुलिन हार्मोन के स्राव में कमी से डायबिटीज रोग होता है। डायबिटीज आनुवांशिक या उम्र बढ़ने पर या मोटाप, स्ट्रेस जैसी कई वजह हो सकती है। डायबिटीज ऐसा रोग है जिसमें व्यक्ति को काफी परहेज से रहना होता है। मधमेह रोगी अगर अपनी दिनचर्या का पालन नहीं करते हैं तो इसके बढ़ने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। इसलिए डाइट चार्ट फॉलो करने जरूरी हो जाता है। 

डाइट चार्ट
शुगर एक बार होने के बाद जीवनभर रहता है। इसे कंट्रोल करने के लिए नियमित दिनचर्या और पोषण युक्त आहार की जरूरत होती है। शुगर होने का कारण असंयमित खानपान, मानसिक तनाव, मोटापा, व्यायाम की कमी आदि है। जिसके कारण दिन-प्रतिदिन इसके मरीजों की संख्या बढ़ रही है। ब्लड शुगर के मरीजों के लिए सबसे ज्यादा जरूरी है संतुलित और नियमित भोजन। योग्य डाइट चार्ट अपनाकर डायबिटीज के मरीज न सिर्फ अपनी शुगर नियंत्रण में रख सकते है बल्कि उनकी दवा और इन्सुलिन का डोज़ भी कम हो सकता हैं।
डायबिटिक को अपने आहार में कुल कैलोरी का 40 प्रतिशत कार्बोहाइड्रेटयुक्त पदार्थों से, 40 प्रतिशत वसायुक्त पदार्थों से व 20 प्रतिशत प्रोटीनयुक्त पदार्थों से लेना चाहिए। यदि शुगर मरीज का वजन ज्यादा है तो उसे कुल कैलोरी का 60 प्रतिशत कार्बोहाइड्रेट से, 20 प्रतिशत फैट से व 20 प्रतिशत प्रोटीन से लेना चाहिए।

आइए हम जानते हैं डायबिटीज के रोगी आइडियल डाइट चार्ट किस प्रकार होनी चाहिए और साथ ही कुछ खास हिदायतें किसी पर्टिकुलर स्थिति पर डायबिटीज को कंट्रोल करने के निर्देश।

  • सुबह 6 बजे - एक ग्लास पानी में आधा चम्मच मेथी पावडर डालकर पीजिए।
  • सुबह 7 बजे - एक कप शुगर फ्री चाय, साथ में 1-2  हलके शक्कर वाली बिस्कुट ले सकते हैं।
  • नाश्ता / ब्रेकफास्ट - साथ आधी कटोरी अंकुरित अनाज और एक गिलास बिना क्रीम वाला दूध।
  • सुबह 10 बजे के बाद - एक छोटा फल या फिर नींबू पानी।
  • दोपहर 1 बजे यानी लंच - मिक्स आटे की 2 रोटी, एक कटोरी चावल, एक कटोरी दाल, एक कटोरी दही, आधी कटोरी सोया या पनीर की सब्जी, आधी कटोरी हरी सब्जी और साथ में एक प्लेट सलाद।
  • शाम 4 बजे - बिना शक्कर या शुगर फ्री के साथ एक कप चाय और बिना चीनी वाला बिस्किट
  • या टोस्ट या 1 सेब।
  • शाम 6 बजे - एक कप सूप पिएँ
  • डिनर - दो रोटियां, एक कटोरी चावल (ब्राउन राइस हफ्ते में 2 बार) और एक कटोरी दाल, आधी कटोरी हरी सब्जी और एक प्लेट सलाद।
  • बिना क्रीम और चीनी के एक गिलास दूध पिएँ। ऐसा करने से अचानक रात में शुगर कम होने का खतरा नहीं होता। 
  • एक खास हिदायत मधुमेह के मरीजों को उपवास करने से बचना चाहिए। इसके अलावा भोजन के बीच लंबा गैप भी नही करना चाहिए और रात के डिनर में हल्का भोजन करना चाहिए। इसके अलावा नियमित रूप से योगा और व्यायाम करने से भी ब्लड शुगर नियंत्रित रहता है। 
  • रोजाना इस डाइट चार्ट को फॉलो करने के साथ ही बताई गई कुछ एक चीजें और इस्तेमाल करें।
  • दरारा पिसा हुआ मैथीदाना एक या आधा चम्मच खाना खाने के 15-20 मिनट पहले लेने से शुगर कंट्रोल में रहती है और इससे और भी कई अंगों को फायदा होता है।
  •  रोटी के आटे को बिना चोकर निकाले यूज़ में लाएं हर चाहें तो इसकी गुणवत्ता बढ़ाने के लिए इसमें सोयाबीन मिला लें।
  • घी और तेल का दिनभर में कम से कम इस्तेमाल करें। 
  • सभी सब्जियों को कम से कम तेल का प्रयोग करके नॉनस्टिक कुकवेयर में पकाएं। हरी पत्तेदार सब्जियां ज्यादा से ज्यादा खाएं।
  • शुगर रोगी को खाने से लगभग 1 घंटा पहले अच्छी स्पीड पैदल चलना चाहिए और साथ ही व्यायाम और योगा भी करें। सही समय पर इंसुलिन व दवाइयां लेते रहें। नियमित रूप से चिकित्सक के पास जांच कराएं।
  • इसके साथ शुगर के मरीज को प्रोटीन अच्छी मात्रा में व उच्च गुणवत्ता वाला लेना चाहिए। इसके लिए दूध, दही, पनीर, अंडा, मछली, सोयाबीन आदि का सेवन ज्यादा करना चाहिए। इंसुलिन ले रहे डायबिटिक व्यक्ति एवं गोलियां ले रहे डायबिटिक व्यक्ति को खाना सही समय पर लेना चाहिए। ऐसा न करने पर हायपोग्लाइसीमिया हो सकता है। इसके कारण कमजोरी, अत्यधिक भूख लगना, पसीना आना, नजर से धुंधला या डबल दिखना, हृदयगति तेज होना, झटके आना एवं गंभीर स्थिति होने पर कोमा में जाने जैसी विपत्ति का भी सामना करना पड़ सकता है। 
  • डायबिटिक व्यक्ति को हमेशा अपने साथ कोई मीठी चीज जैसे ग्लूकोज, शक्कर, चॉकलेट, मीठे बिस्किट रखना चाहिए। यदि हायपोग्लाइसीमिया के लक्षण दिखें तो तुरंत इनका सेवन करना चाहिए। एक सामान्य डायबिटिक व्यक्ति को ध्यान रखना चाहिए कि वे थोड़ी-थोड़ी देर में कुछ खाते रहें। दो या ढाई घंटे में कुछ खाएं। एक समय पर बहुत सारा खाना न खाएं।
  • डायबिटीज के मरीज हमेशा डबल टोन्ड दूध का प्रयोग करें। कम कैलोरीयुक्त खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन करें जैसे - छिलके वाला भुना चना, परमल, अंकुरित अनाज, सूप, सलाद आदि का ज्यादा सेवन करें। दही और छाछ का सेवन करने से ग्लूकोज का स्तर कम होता है और डायबिटीज नियंत्रण में रहता है।

Tuberculosis in hindi - क्षय रोग क्या होता है

Tuberculosis in hindi - क्षय रोग क्या होता है

ट्यूबरक्लोसिस जिसे टीबी या क्षय रोग के नाम से जानते हैं, एक खतरनाक बीमारी है। ये एक ऐसी बीमारी है जिसकी पहचान आसानी से नहीं हो पाती इसलिए इसके लक्षणों पर ध्यान देना बेहद जरूरी है। दुनिया में छह-सात करोड़ लोग इस बीमारी से ग्रस्त हैं और प्रत्येक वर्ष 25 से 30 लाख लोगों की इससे मौत हो जाती है। देश में हर तीन मनट में दो मरीज क्षयरोग के कारण दम तोड़ देते हैं। हर दिन चालीस हजार लोगों को इसका संक्रमण हो जाता है। 

ये बीमारी दरअसल माइकोबैक्टीरियम ट्यूबरक्लोसिस से फैलती है जो हमारे फेफड़ों को नुकसान पहुंचाता है। ये बीमारी फेफड़ों से रक्त प्रवाह के साथ शरीर के अन्य भागों में भी फैल सकता है, जैसे हड्डी, हड्डियों के जोड़, लिम्फ ग्रंथियां, आंत, मूत्र व प्रजनन तंत्र के अंग, त्वचा और मस्तिष्क के ऊपर की झिल्ली आदि। येजीवाणु दूषित पानी या मिट्टी में पाए जाते हैं। ये हवा के जरिए एक इंसान से दूसरे में फैलती है। टी.बी. के बैक्टीरिया सांस से शरीर में प्रवेश करते हैं। किसी रोगी के खांसने, छींकने, बात करने या थूकने के समय बलगम व थूक की बहुत ही छोटी-छोटी बूंदें हवा में फैल जाती हैं, जिनमें मौजूद बैक्टीरिया कई घंटों तक हवा में रहते हैं और दूसरे के शरीर में पहुंचकर रोग पैदा करते हैं।

लक्षण

  • टीबी आनुवांशिक नहीं बल्किे एक संक्रामक रोग है। इसकी चपेट में आने वाला व्यक्तिा धीरे-धीरे कमजोर होता चला जाता है। सबसे कॉमन फेफड़ों की टीबी ही है लेकिन यह ब्रेन, यूटरस, मुंह, लिवर, किडनी, गला, हड्डी आदि शरीर के किसी भी हिस्से में हो सकती है। 
  • टीबी का सबसे आम लक्षण है, दो हफ्ते से ज्यादा खांसी होना और तेज बुखार आना।  
  • खांसी बलगम के साथ आती है और कभी-कभार साथ में खून भी आ सकता है। इसके अलावा भूख कम लगना, लगातार वजन कम होना, शाम या रात के वक्त बुखार आना, सर्दी में भी पसीना आना, सांस उखड़ना या सांस लेते हुए सीने में दर्द होना वगैरह लक्षण हो सकते हैं और कई बार इसके लक्षण साइलेंट भी होते हैं। टीबी के लक्षण पहचान में आते ही तुरंत डॉक्टर की सलाह लें और जांचें करवाएं। इस बात का जरूर ध्यान रखें कि टीबी की दवाओं का कोर्स होता है उसे पूरा करें। बीच में दवा छोड़ना नुकसानदायक हो सकता है।

टीबी के कई लक्षण कैंसर और ब्रॉन्काइटिस के लक्षणों से भी मेल खाते हैं। तीनों बीमारियों में फर्क बतानेवाले प्रमुख लक्षण हैं:

  • कैंसर में मुंह से ज्यादा खून आता है। वजन कम हो जाता है लेकिन बुखार ज्यादातर देखने को नहीं मिालता।
  • ब्रॉन्काइटिस में सांस लेने में दिक्कत होती है और सांस लेते वक्त सीटी जैसी आवाज आती है।
  • टीबी में सांस की दिक्कत नहीं होती, खांसी आती है और बुखार आता है।

रोग की वजह

अच्छा खान-पान न करने वालों को टीबी ज्यादा होती है क्योंकि कमजोर इम्यूनिटी से उनका शरीर बैक्टीरिया का वार नहीं झेल पाता। जब कम जगह में ज्यादा लोग रहते हैं तब इन्फेक्शन तेजी से फैलता है। अंधेरी और सीलन भरी जगहों पर भी टीबी का इन्फैक्शन फैलता है क्योंकि टीबी का बैक्टीरिया अंधेरे में पनपता है। यह किसी को भी हो सकता है क्योंकि यह एक से दूसरे में संक्रमण से फैलता है। स्मोकिंग करने वालों को भी टीबी का खतरा ज्यादा होता है। डायबीटीज के मरीजों, स्टेरॉयड लेने वालों और एचआईवी मरीज भी टीबी की चपेट में जल्दी आते हैं। 

टीबी से राहत के लिए कुछ घरेलू उपाय

  • 200 ग्राम शहद, 200 ग्राम मिश्री, 100 ग्राम गाय का घी, तीनों को मिला लें। रोगी को 6-6 ग्राम दवा दिन में कई बार चटाएं। साथ में गाय या बकरी का दूध पिलाएं ।
  • रोज़ सुबह और शाम को जब पेट खाली हो, आधा कप प्याज का रस एक चुटकी हींग डाल कर पिएं।
  • केला इम्यूनिटी मजबूत करता है। एक पका कला लें। मसलकर  इसमें एक कप नारियल पानी, आधा कप दही और एक चम्मच शहद मिलाएं। इसे दिन में दो बार लें।
  • ताजा संतरे के रस में थोड़ा सा नमक और शहद मिलाकर रोजाना सुबह शाम पीएं। संतरा इम्यूनिटी मजबूत करता है साथ ही फेफड़े से कफ साफ करने में मदद करता है।
  • टीबी के उपचार के लिए शरीफा भी बेहद फायदेमंद है। शरीफे का गूदा निकालकर इसे खाना चाहिए।
  • अखरोट टीबी के मरीजों को ताकत देता है, उनकी इम्यूनिटी बढ़ाता है और जल्दी ठीक होने में भी मदद करता है।

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy is a brain triggered disorder that can result in the affected person having seizures or convulsions of the body. Such convulsions last about a few minutes and the person undergoing epileptic seizure might be unaware of what’s happening to him/her during those brief moments. They may recover and appear disoriented for a few minutes more.

Epilepsy can’t be cured but is treated through medicines called anticonvulsant drugs.

  1. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder brought about due to unusual electrical activity in the brain
  2. The person having the disorder can have episodes of seizures where there can be sudden involuntary movements of the person’s whole body and shaking of the arms and legs lasting a few minutes
  3. The condition can occur to anybody irrespective of age but children seem to suffer more from the condition following a head injury or emotional trauma
  4. Electroencephalogram or EEG is the best way for the doctor to understand the exact nature of the disorder and this will help in the treatment.
  5. Treatment through drugs is the most popular way of keeping the convulsions under check
  6. Medically, if the patient goes without seizures for a few years under regular medication then there is every possibility the person may not suffer further convulsions
  7. Apart from medication, dietary regulations have also been adopted by many physicians to treat the condition. Low carb and high protein items are advised as a way to reduce/stop the epileptic seizures
  8. In some cases, the doctor might decide to conduct a surgery to remove the aberrant part of the brain to treat the individual for epilepsy
  9. People with epilepsy have to take a lot of precautions in their daily routines to avoid getting seriously injured if they were to suffer a sudden attack of seizures
  10. Driving and swimming are to be avoided by them
  11. People standing around can help reduce the suffering by turning the person over to one side and offering a support to the head. Care can also be taken to remove any object that can cause injury to the person while having the convulsions.
  12. Some doctors study the pattern of the seizures occurring and help in regulating them in such a manner that the person gets the convulsions only in the nights while asleep
  13. This can limit the damage done to the person and can also help the person in going about normal routines
  14. Parents must inform the school authorities if their children suffers from epilepsy so that they can provide first aid to such students immediately if episodes occur in school

Epilepsy is a brain-related disorder that can cause the person to go through involuntary shaking of the body and the limbs. It is usually treated with drugs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

Penis Health Sex Tips for Busy Lovers!

Penis Health Sex Tips for Busy Lovers!

Text the boss. Answer emails. Pick up the kids. Buy groceries. Pay bills. People today are busier than they've ever been - arguably, too busy. Certainly when couples find themselves too busy for sex, something has to give. Assuming a guy has maintained proper penis care and the issue is availability rather than ability, men (and their partners) may find these tips valuable as a way of helping busy lovers make time for sex - and by extension, better penis health.

1. Start the day right

Most guys assume this means getting in a quick one before work - and, hey, there's nothing wrong with that. But most busy couples feel a little too time-pressed for that. Instead, couples need to make some time just to be together. An ideal way is to set the alarm for, say, five minutes earlier than usual. When the alarm goes off, just wrap arms around each other and cuddle up for a few minutes. A little nuzzling and kissing is good, but it's more about just being together.

2. Get clean together

After a few days of cuddling in the mornings, set the alarm 10 minutes earlier every so often and take a shower together as well. Again, this doesn't have to include actual sex - although it's fine if it does. But it's more about being naked together, running hands along each other's bodies. Sure, it may mean that someone - especially the guy - may get aroused and feel a little frustrated if there's no time to act on that arousal. But it may also make a couple more committed to setting aside time when they can fulfill each other.

3. Keep it up during the day

Even if there's been no time to plan for sex, keep reminding the partner of how much they matter. Playful (or suggestive) little texts, an email with a link to something that interests them, a quick phone call - all this can help keep both parties feeling connected and anxious to share themselves more fully.

4. Schedule it

Sure, making an appointment for sex seems not-so-sexy. But not having sex at all is the ultimate not-so-sexy. The most basic of tips for busy people is to make an unbreakable date and time and keep to it. It may mean getting the kids out of the house, skipping the gym, letting the boys have their night out on their own, turning the cell phone off - some kind of sacrifice needs to be made. But it is worth it.

5. Enjoy it

This may seem unnecessary, but a surprising number of busy lovers put so much pressure on actually getting to have sex that they don't enjoy it when they do. Make the evening relaxed and fun. Don't worry about whether there will be an orgasm - or even necessarily if there will be penetration. Let the night be about getting back in touch with someone important and exploring their physical and emotional self. Go in without expectations and enjoy whatever comes along in whatever form.

Another of the more popular sex tips for men, busy or not: Be sure your penis is in good health. Regular application of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is perfect for this. When choosing a crème, see if its ingredients include a powerful antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid. Good antioxidants pack a punch that debilitates free radicals, knocking them out before they can create the oxidative stress that makes penis skin look aged and unhealthy. The crème should also include pantothenic acid, aka vitamin B5. Pantothenic acid is crucial for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy penile tissue.

Please advise for avoiding overexcitability during sexual act with partner. Even the touch of partner at organ during act leads to early discharge within seconds. This happens even when condom is used. Also there is no problem with erection. It is rapid and satisfactory. Please advise after analysis. Start and squeeze techniques have failed.

All medicines have side effects masturbation once a day is quite normal and harmless Try this it will help u. Pls note most of the times premature ejaculation (PE) occurs due to speed. We tend to go fast and in the process the sperm comes out sooner that required. Maintain a low speed and keep on taking deep breathes (when you penetrate) and stop for 30 seconds if you feel like ejaculating. U can practise this process while you masturbate, to gain confidence & remember that you need to enjoy the process and keep taking slow deep breathes. I would also suggest you to engage in some form of relaxation or yoga, to relieve your anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is another cause of PE. Engaging more in oral sex, without touching each others' genitals also helps in setting up the relaxation mode. Then you can go for penetration without much anxiety. For erectile dysfunction you can try getting stimulation from years partner, like proper liking or other forms of hand and oral stimulation in case you want a one to one talk with me, pls contact Lybrate for booking an appointment.

Penis Health Diet: Optimal Food Choices!

Penis Health Diet: Optimal Food Choices!

Guys into maintaining the fitness of their body understand the important role diet plays in staying healthy. The right food choices can make a huge difference in overall health; indeed, these same food choices can be instrumental in improving penis health as well. But what are some foods men should consider consuming if maintaining proper penis health is their goal? The following list includes some helpful choices.

1. Bananas

It's not just because of their phallic shape that bananas are recommended for improving penis health. Most fruits are a good choice for men, but the banana has several things going for it. First, it is a good source of potassium, which is great for heart health and blood circulation, both of which are helpful in erectile function. (Remember, the spongy tissue in the penis soaks up the blood to become erect. Better blood circulation aids this process, and the heart has to be in good shape to keep pumping that blood around.) Potassium also helps reduce sodium levels in the blood. Second, the banana contains tyrosine, an amino acid that helps produce the neurotransmitters that increase sex drive. People also get dietary fiber from bananas, and that can help lower cholesterol, keeping a guy in better shape for sexual shenanigans.

2. Cashews

Cashew nuts make a great snack, something to keep a guy going when he needs a little pick me up. They also are a good source of zinc, and the penis likes that. Zinc helps to block the enzyme responsible for breaking testosterone down into estrogen - thereby helping to keep testosterone levels higher, which can have an impact on sexual performance.

3. Blueberries

They're sometimes called Nature's Viagra, and while that may be carrying things a little far, there is a reason blueberries are associated with sexual performance. Blueberries are rich in flavonoids, which help those penile blood vessels relax and stay ready for an influx of blood. As with bananas, blueberries contain good fiber content, helping to eliminate "bad" cholesterol which can lead to blockages.

4. Tomatoes

The secret ingredient in tomatoes is lycopene, a phytochemical that is another strong player in the increased blood flow sweepstakes. In addition to being an aid in erectile issues, tomatoes help keep the prostate healthy, further benefiting a man's sexual life.

5. Brussels sprouts

While Brussels sprouts historically have a reputation as "good for you but bad to taste," their recent prominence in the foodie culture has made them more palatable. Whether they suit a man's taste or not, they can still be quite helpful. These vegetables contain indole-3-carbinol, a compound helpful in boosting sex drive. Like zinc, it lowers estrogen levels, thus keeping testosterone at a higher level.

6. Pomegranates

A man gets benefits from consuming either the fruit itself or its juice. Antioxidant-rich, it's also high in fiber and potassium, making it a good bet for helping with penile blood flow issues. Some researchers believe it can be beneficial in keeping the genitals properly sensitized.

7. Shitake mushrooms

This little guy can pack a punch. It has high levels of zinc, the benefits of which have been discussed previously. It's also filled with vitamin D; the absence of enough vitamin D can lower sex drive. And it's a source for choline, which helps stimulate one of the neurotransmitters that get things revved up for a guy.

These food choices can help maintain penis health, especially if a guy also regularly uses a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). If the crème contains alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant, it can add a boost to the antioxidants in the foods listed above. The crème should also contain L-arginine, which can further aid in keeping open those penile blood vessels so that the organ can be ready and receptive for increased blood flow at appropriate times.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose values given are abnormally high. He needs urgent treatment that too with Insulin injection. Tablets (oral anti-diabetics) are not going to be beneficial. First he has to be started on Insulin for at least 3 months along with an oral drug, once a desired control is achieved, he can be shifted on to only oral drugs later. So if you are keen on getting treatment initiated online, can come in a private conversation with following details: HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and details of medications that he may be taking. Either get treatment from me or consult a local doctor preferably a diabetologist. Do not delay. As uncontrolled diabetes can cause very severe long term complications affecting a multiple organs in the body. Thanks.

It will not cause any side effects on your sexual life, until you are not using Steroids. Rather it will increase your erection and stamina. As exercise will boost your testosterone level Good luck.

When Penis Bumps Are a Sign of Staph Infection!

When Penis Bumps Are a Sign of Staph Infection!

Doing a self-check for potential penis issues is always a good idea. Often in the process of inspecting himself, a man will discover he has some penis bumps which weren't there previously. They may be due to a rash or to some other rather simple penis health issue. But in some cases, penis bumps might be a clue that a staph infection is present, and that is something that requires a doctor's attention.

Staph infection

It's kind of a funny name, so just what is a staph infection? To start with, the "staph" part is short for staphylococcus aureus, a kind of bacteria. If the bacteria gets into the skin (usually through a cut or scrape), it can cause an infection.

If it occurs in the groin, it may present as a rash or swelling; it may also present as penis bumps or bumps on the balls, often resembling little pimples. In some cases, the bumps start as ingrown pubic hairs.

Staph can be annoying, but if it gets under the skin and into the bloodstream, it can become dangerous. In some cases, a simple staph infection spreads and becomes a urinary tract infection, pneumonia, meningitis or sepsis. The presence of infection can be especially dangerous if the form of bacteria is that known as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus. This bacteria is much harder to kill and can cause severe damage or even death. Fortunately, MRSA is much rarer than regular staph infections.

When the staph infection gets underneath the penis skin, it can sometimes cause extensive swelling (and not the kind a man expects when the penis is in a sexual state of excitement).

Treatment

Antibiotics (most often penicillin) are typically used to treat a case of staph infection. However, cases involving MRSA may prove much more difficult to treat with this option. In some cases, it may be necessary to surgically remove infected areas, although this is a rare course of action.

Prevention

As noted, bacteria cause staph infection, so the most important way to prevent this condition is to pay close attention to basic hygiene. Washing regularly is essential, as is wearing clean clothing (especially underwear and pants, where staph infection of the penis is concerned). In the summer, when men tend to sweat more, it may be a good idea to "air out" the penis regularly, perhaps by sleeping unclothed.

Direct contact with an infected area can also cause the bacteria to spread, so it's wise to avoid skin-to-skin contact with a partner's infection. Also, be advised that the bacteria can be spread through other means, such as using the towel or razor of an infected person, wearing an infected person's clothing, etc.

Keep an eye out for penis bumps or ingrown hairs, especially if they are accompanied by abnormal swelling. For men who manscape, take care to avoid cuts, which provide a direct pathway for bacteria to get into the skin.

Again, a guy who suspects a staph infection in his penis should see a doctor right away. Dead tissue can develop relatively quickly if the infection is left untreated.

Penis bumps are not always the result of a staph infection, of course, and may simply indicate dry or damaged penis skin. Regular application of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can keep that skin healthier or more resistant to damage. Be sure to select a crème that includes vitamin A among its ingredients. Also known as retinol, vitamin A is a natural antibacterial agent, so it can help fight many types of bacteria that cause skin irritation. The crème should also include Shea butter and vitamin E, a potent combination of moisturizers that can repair dry penis skin and provide a moisture lock to keep the skin better hydrated.

FATTY LIVER- A Growing Burden!

FATTY LIVER- A Growing Burden!

Liver is not only the largest organ of the body but also one of the most vital. It filters blood, detoxifies chemicals, metabolizes drugs, secretes bile and also makes proteins necessary for blood clotting. Fatty Liver has become one of the most common causes of liver disease worldwide and has been recognized as a major health burden.

What is fatty liver?

Fatty liver or steatosis is the term that describes the buildup of fat in the liver. While it’s normal to have some fat in liver, more than 5 to 10 percent of liver weight is fat in case of fatty liver.

Risk Factors:

The prevalence of fatty liver has grown proportionally with the rise in obesity, sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle, improper dietary pattern, and metabolic syndrome. Subjects with significantly higher value of body mass index, waist circumference, percent body fat, total cholesterol and above normal blood pressure have more chances of having a fatty liver.

Treatment:

Currently, there is no drug therapy that can be formulated for treating fatty liver. A combination of dietary modifications and increased physical activity remains the mainstay of fatty liver management.

Diet to be followed:

People with fatty liver are encouraged to eat a variety of foods, choose from several food groups, and include predominantly whole grains and their products in the diet. Consuming high quality protein like eggs, lean meat like fish and chicken will help regenerate the liver cells. For the vegans complementary proteins like low fat dairy products, beans, legumes and pulses would enrich their diet. A daily serving of fresh fruits and vegetables is recommended. Unsaturated vegetable oil like safflower, sunflower or olive for cooking can be used.  Plenty of water needs to be taken everyday which would help flush the liver of toxins. Combination of vitamin D, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids show promise for the treatment of fatty liver.

What to avoid:

  • Alcohol
  • Fried foods
  • Saturated and trans fats like butter, cheese and red meat
  • High fructose and high glycemic index foods like soda, potatoes, white bread etc

Fatty liver is reversible if proper adequate steps are taken and a healthy liver goes a long way in enhancing the quality and longevity of life of an individual.

Hello- Excessive masturbation over a long period of time damages penile tissues and vessels in many ways. The motion of masturbation is usually more aggressive than that of the wet physical contact of sexual intercourse. The excessive rubbing and subsequent abrasions from over masturbation can result in detriment condition, known as Peyronie's Disease (Curvature of Penis), if continued on a regular basis. Fortunately, many potent herbs in the Herbal Remedy For Penile Fibrotic Tissue Damage & Curvature contain natural growth factors and phyto-molecules that are known to stimulate penile tissue repair and the rejuvenation process. During recovery, it is necessary to reduce the frequency of sexual activities, including masturbation, to ensure that all of the nutrients from the herbs are fully utilized for healing.

Normally there has to be gap in the disk then only it will act as a cushion. If the space is reduced then there is a problem. He needs rest, physiotherapy and exercises. If the pain radiates to the leg then he needs Mri scan.
