Panic Attack - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Panic Attack - Ways It Can Be Treated!

A panic attack is something which can hit a person like a sack of bricks and can really affect him or her. While a lot of people around the world do happen to suffer as a result of panic attacks, not many of them know what they could do to make it end soon and to get back to normal. So, wouldn’t it be a pretty good idea to learn a little about what can be done to control a panic attack?

Symptoms
One of the most common signs of a panic attack is a hike in the rate of intake of air and an increase in the pulse rate of the person at the same time. In addition to this, the person’s palms get sweaty and clammy. A lot of people who experience panic attacks also feel the need to either vomit or defecate when they have one, neither of which can be said to be a pleasant feeling. Dizziness and a feeling of numbness are also quite common symptoms indicating a panic attack.

Causes
The reason why a person usually has a panic attack in the first place is because he or she feels that the degree of control possessed over a certain situation is not to the level that would seem to be comfortable. What is interesting when it comes to panic attacks is the fact that the more a person panics in a specific situation, the more the panic attacks are going to occur in that sort of situation or ones that are similar. For example, if a person is worried prior to a race and runs away from it instead of running the race itself, it registers in the mind as something worth being scared about. Facing up to the fear has great value. Apart from the anxiety factor, certain medicines and physical ailments also sometimes result in panic attacks.

Tips to end a panic attack
1. Hyperventilation is common and a deep breath goes a long way.
2. An alternative to hyperventilation would be to hold one’s breath. The duration for which this should be done is about 10 to 15 seconds. Doing this just a few times greatly helps in returning to normal.
3. A person doesn’t really think when in the middle of a panic attack. Making the effort to do any mental exercise such as backward counting in sets of 3 from 100 helps.

Sun Stroke Symptoms and Treatment in Hindi - लू लगने के लक्षण, उपचार

Sun Stroke Symptoms and Treatment in Hindi - लू लगने के लक्षण, उपचार

गर्मियों में लू लगने की समस्या आम है. अंग्रेजी में इसे हीट स्ट्रोक और सनस्ट्रोक के नाम से जाना जाता है. जब तापमान चरम पर होता है और गर्म हवा के झोंके चलते हैं तब लू लग सकती है. इसमें हमारे शरीर के द्रव सूखने जाते हैं जिससे पानी और नमक की कमी हो जाती है और लू लगने का खतरा उत्पन्न हो जाता है. लू लगने पर शरीर में गर्मी, खुश्की और थकावट महसूस होने लगती है. लू लगने के कारण कई और मामूली बीमारियां जैसे कि हीट एडेमा (शरीर का सूजना), हीट रैश, हीट क्रैम्प्स (शरीर में अकड़न) और हीट साइनकॉप (बेहोशी) आदि भी हो सकती हैं. चिकित्सकिय भाषा में शरीर के तापमान को 105 डिग्री फारेनहाइट से अधिक रहने पर और शरीर के सेंट्रल नर्वस सिस्टम में जटिलताओं के पेश आने पर लू लगना कहते हैं.

लू लगना के लक्षण
* लू लगने पर शरीर में गर्मी, खुश्की, सिरदर्द, कमजोरी, शरीर टूटना, बार-बार मुंह सूखना, उलटी, चक्कर, सांस लेने में तकलीफ, दस्त और कई बार निढाल या बेहोशी जैसे लक्षण नजर आते हैं. ध्यान रहे कि लू लगने पर पसीना नहीं आता है.
* लू लगने पर आँखों में जलन भी होती है.
* लू लगने के कारण अचानक बेहोशी व अंततः रोगी की मौत तक हो सकती है.
* इसमें निम्न रक्तचाप और लिवर-किडनी में सोडियम पोटैशियम का संतुलन बिगड़ जाता है. इसलिए बेहोशी भी आ सकती है. इसके अलावा ब्रेन या हार्ट स्ट्रोक की स्थिति भी बन सकती है.
* इस दौरान शरीर का तापमान एकदम से बढ़ जाता है. अक्सर बुखार बहुत ज्यादा मसलन 105 या 106 डिग्री फॉरनहाइट तक पहुंच जाता है.
* हाथ और पैरों के तलुओं में जलन-सी होती रहती है

सामान्य उपचार

लू लगने वाले व्यक्ति को आसानी से कुछ सामान्य उपचार के जरिए भी बचाया जा सकता है. कुछ छोटे-मोटे आसन उपायों पर नजर डालिए-
* जब भी बाहर गर्मी चरम पर हो तो कम से कम बाहर निकलकर लू से बचा जा सकता है. लेकिन यदि बाहर जाना आवश्यक हो तो अधिक से अधिक पानी पीकर निकलें. ध्यान रहे कि खाली पेट न निकलें.
* पीड़ित व्यक्ति को सबसे पहले छांव में लायें. फिर उसके लिए हवा का इंतजाम करें. गर्मी के कारण शरीर का तापमान हुई वृद्धि, छाया में लाने से तापमान सामान्य आना शुरु हो जाता है.
* उसव्यक्ति को नमक शक्कर और पानी का घोल मुँह से पिलायें, उसके कपड़े निकालकर सिर्फ अंदरूनी वस्त्र रखें. बेहतरी के लिए शरीर पर हल्का सा गर्म पानी भी छिड़क सकते हैं.
* आप चाहें तो गीली चादर में लपेटकर भी तापमान को कम करने का प्रयास कर सकते हैं.
* हाथ पैर की मालिश करें जिससे रक्त संचरण प्रभावित होता है.
* संभव हो तो बर्फ के टुकड़े कपड़े में लपेटकर गर्दन, बगलों और जांघों पर रखे. इससे गर्मी जल्दी निकलती है.
* धूप में घर से बाहर निकलें तो छतरी का इस्तेमाल करें. नंगे बदन और नंगे पैर धूप में ना खड़े हों.
* तरल पदार्थों के रूप में आप नींबू पानी, आम पना, छाछ, लस्सी, नारियल पानी, बेल या नींबू का शर्बत, खस का शर्बत जैसे तरल पदार्थों का उपयोग करते रहें.
* ढीले और सूती कपड़े पहनना ज्यादा उचित होता है.
* अचानक से गर्मी से एकदम ठंडे कमरे में ना जाएं.
* जितना ज्यादा हो सके हरी सब्जियों का सेवन करें. खीरा, ककड़ी, लौकी, तौरी आदि का भरपूर सेवन करें.
* यदि आपके पास सुविधा हो तो ठंडे वातानुकूलित कमरे में रहें.
* इमली के गूदे को हाथ पैरों पर मलें.
* शरीर का तापमान तेज होने पर सिर पर ठंडी पट्टी रखें.
* घर से बाहर निकलते समय जेब में कटा प्याज रखें.

STDs In Women - How Common Are They?

STDs In Women - How Common Are They?

Although sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are capable of affecting both genders, the impact on men and women is different. In women, this problem can cause long-term issues such as infertility. Although most STDs can be readily treated as soon as the symptoms surface, some cases might not throw up any symptom.

Some of the curable STDs that can affect women are discussed below:

  1. Gonorrhoea: This STD is caused by bacteria living in mucous membranes of the vagina, urethra, mouth, rectum and eyes and is capable of spreading through contact. The symptoms in women include excessive discharge from the vagina, abdominal cramps, pain in the pelvic region and bleeding from the vagina after sex.

  2. Chlamydia: The STD is a result of a bacterial infection of ‘Chlamydia trachomatis’. Symptoms in females include burning sensation during urination, unusual vaginal discharge and bleeding between periods. Without treatment, the infection might spread to the urinary tract which could potentially cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) which is capable of causing problems in pregnancy and even infertility.

  3. Genital Herpes: Genital herpes is generally caused by the herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). The virus is commonly known to be the chief cause of cold sores. Symptoms may appear soon after infection and usually are severe. This includes blisters which turn into raw and painful sores that scab and heal over time. This might be accompanied by swollen lymph nodes and fever.

  4. Chancroid: This infection is a STD caused by the bacterium ‘Haemophilus Ducreyi’. It occurs most commonly in the vulva (the female external genital organ that includes the clitoris, labia as well as the opening of the vagina). The condition starts out as a tender bump that appears during the incubation period after intercourse. The incubation period generally ranges between 3-10 days. The bump turns into an ulcer i.e. an open sore, due to the death of the cells. This is usually painful.

  5. Syphilis: It is caused by the bacterium ‘Treponema pallidum’ and the disease mainly occurs if you have sexual intercourse without any protection, that too with multiple sexual partners. The other mode of infection is blood transfusion. Symptoms of Syphilis include appearance of ulcers around the genitals or the oral region known as a chancre, severe rashes around the hand or feet coupled with other symptoms of mild fever, headache, throat pain and immense fatigue.

Homeopathic Treatment For Gluten Intolerance!

Homeopathic Treatment For Gluten Intolerance!

Gluten allergy refers to the abnormal reaction of the immunity system that is caused as a result of the protein content in the wheat grain. Wheat is normally composed of the two main protein variants called glutenins and gliadins, combining together to form gluten. This gluten induces particular immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated responses and leads to various symptoms of wheat allergy. Regardless of what your gluten intolerance reactions are, they can be easily treated with proper homoeopathic treatments and medications.

Gluten intolerance can lead to atopic dermatitis and in most cases, urticarial and asthma. In some rare instances, it leads to exercise induced anaphylaxis. It is important to note here that the gluten intolerance should never be confused with celiac disease, which can be explained as sensitivity to gluten in wheat and various other grains. People who are suffering from celiac disease must try to avoid rye, barley and oats. Wheat comprises of four allergens namely, albumin, gladian, globulin and wheat gluten.

What should you not eat?
If you are suffering from gluten intolerance, then you must stay away from breads, crackers and cookies as well as other baked foods along with certain beverages such as beer, ale and malted milk. It is advised to stay away from ice cream, batter fried items, burgers and other items containing meat loaf and follow a restrictive diet altogether. There are various other sources of gluten, and you must speak with your doctor to find out which food items are restricted for your health condition and what are the possible homoeopathic treatments for alleviating gluten allergy?

How can homoeopathy help in treating gluten intolerance?
Homoeopathy is regarded as a popular system of medicine where the selection of medicines is done by assessing the individual health condition and medical history of the patient. As far as therapeutic medication is taken into consideration, there is a wide array of medications available for treating wheat allergy, and you must consult a doctor before administering any medication. The best part of the homoeopathic treatment is that it doesn’t cause any side effects, and you will be able to get rid of your problem of gluten intolerance entirely with homoeopathic medications.

Homeopathy is normally termed to be organic and natural treatment, which has been going on for a very long time and is gaining popularity across the globe today. However, it is very important for you to understand how the treatment works and what are the restrictions imposed for helping in the eradication of the gluten intolerance. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How To Prevent Premature Ejaculation ?

MS Ayurved, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine & Surgery (BAMS)

How To Prevent Premature Ejaculation ?

An estimated 30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation (PE) at some point in their life, which can cause significant distress.

Ejaculation can be considered premature when it occurs 30 seconds to 4 minutes into sex, depending on different cultures, countries and experts. However, it seems that most tend to agree that any sexual intercourse lasting less than 2 minutes can be considered premature ejaculation.

Behavioural techniques can help you delay orgasm. These include the start-and-stop method and the squeeze technique.

What Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is ejaculation that happens too soon for a man and his partner to enjoy sex. There are two types of premature ejaculation: lifelong (or primary) and acquired (or secondary).

Lifelong PE starts early on, usually when you are a teenager experiencing first sexual contact. It is harder to treat and often has deeper psychological causes. Bad habits may also contribute (such as masturbating to ejaculate as fast as possible in order to avoid getting caught).

Acquired PE happens later in life and is usually triggered by either psychological (stress or relationship issues) or physical causes

How Can I Delay Ejaculation?

There are a wide range of "home-made" remedies for premature ejaculation like frequent sex, masturbating a couple of hours before sex, or having sex with the woman on top.

Thicker condoms: a thicker wall can decrease the sensitivity of the penis

Behavioural strategies: "start-stop" and "squeeze techniques" often prove effective, but do not provide a long-term solution.

It can take a few months for you to overcome PE with these techniques and many men have to keep using them on a permanent basis.

On average, 50% to 95% of men using sexual techniques manage to overcome PE eventually. There is a risk of relapse if there are significant changes in your sexual life (e.g. new partner, stressful event), especially if you feel anxious. In general, the sooner in life you learn to master these techniques the better.

Men who are over-sensitive, rather than being excessively anxious, might not benefit from these behavioural methods because they suffer from a different cause of premature ejaculation.

For these patients, medications that reduce your sensitivity (for example, EMLA a cream, or Priligy an oral tablet) are recommended. are a better solution and eventually improve control over ejaculation. Whilst they can be taken as long-term solutions for premature ejaculation, they don't fix the underlying causes of PE.

What Is The "Start-Stop" Technique?

This is by far the most simple technique and can be done alone or with a partner.

The technique involves stimulating the penis and stopping just before you feel you are about to ejaculate. Stop the stimulation for 30-60 seconds and start again once you feel that you have regained control. Repeat this process 4-5 times, stopping and “resting” every time you feel that you are about to have an orgasm. Finally, let the ejaculation occur, so that you can identify the “point of no-return”.

Many couples and partners complain, however, about the inconvenience of this “game” and find it frustrating. Try to incorporate it smoothly into sex and take advantage of the pauses to focus on sources of pleasure other than the penis.

What Is The "Squeeze" Technique?

The "squeeze" technique works by squeezing the penis in the area between the shaft and the glans (for about 30 seconds), just before you are about to ejaculate. This stops the ejaculation, but may affect your erection, at least until you are stimulated again. You should then repeat this process 4-5 times until you decide not to delay orgasm anymore.

To be effective, this method has to be used for several months and it requires great perseverance from the man and his partner.

The idea behind the "squeeze" technique is that, after a while, you are able to recognize the “point of no return” and may be able to delay future ejaculations. This technique may be frustrating though as it can disrupt sexual activity.

What Are The Other Options?

The "start-stop" and "squeeze" technique prove more effective when combined with these techniques:

  • Think about something else: something distracting, boring or annoying
  • Take a deep breath before ejaculation: this can delay orgasm by slowing
  • Masturbate first : Masturbate to orgasm an hour or two before intercourse; this can help delay ejaculation during sex. 
  • Hold off on penetration : Avoid penetration for the first 15 minutes of lovemaking. Focus on other sexual play to take the pressure off 
  • Do Kegels : Kegel exercises strengthen the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle, which contracts during orgasm; a well-toned muscle means better control. (To locate the muscle: When you urinate, tense up and interrupt the flow; what you’re clenching is the PC muscle.) Do several sets of Kegels every day.  

Talk to your doctor: PE is a very treatable condition, Since premature ejaculation can have psychological origins, talking to a sexual therapist can be an excellent approach. Remember guys, there is nothing wrong with talking about our sexual health - in fact, we should do more of it! Feel free to Contact me.

Male Sexual Disorders can be broadly categorised as Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, Loss of Libido, Impotency, Less and Unhealthy Sperms. Delayed Ejaculation etc, have various causes behind it. It may be caused due to chronic diseases like diabetes, liver dysfunction, alcoholism, drug abuse, smoking, unhealthy lifestyle, excessive masturbation etc. Sometimes people go for testosterone supplements to boost their impotency but it does not show much benefit if we compare to ayurvedic treatment.

Whereas, Female Sexual Disorders such as Leucorrhoea, Dryness of vagina, Pain during sex, Absent orgasm, Low libido/Low sex desire can be caused due to hormonal imbalances, tiredness, chronic diseases, menopause, pregnancy, ageing and depression. As females are much sensitive towards sexual disorders it is highly recommended to take preventive measures and must be on regular checkups with medication.

Insect Bites - Know The Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Insect Bites - Know The Best Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Insect bites and stings ( bee, wasp, fire ant, mosquitoes, snakes ) can be painfully annoying. The stings are often accompanied by redness, swelling, pain and inflammation. Some of the stings and bites, if not treated timely, can prove to be fatal. The goodness of homeopathy is known to all.

There are excellent homeopathic medicines available for insect stings and bites:

  1. Formica Rufa: Stings from fire ants can be an awful experience. There is blistering and the affected area appears reddish. The sting results in an excruciating stinging pain. There is uncontrollable itching at the affected site. However, the sting does not result in much swelling. Formica Rufa is an effective homeopathic medicine to treat such stings.
  2. Apis Mellifica: Sometimes, insect bites or stings result in immediate swelling and inflammation at the site of the sting. The unbearable stinging pain is followed by itching. There is a burning sensation and the affected area appears red and hot. In extreme cases, there is considerable swelling of the throat and the mouth (the mucous membrane swells). Apis Mellifica is a powerful medicine providing immense relief. Since the sting site feels hot, a cold compression can be a good option.
  3. Staphysagria: Do not lose sleep over mosquitoes and mosquito bites. Staphysagria is an excellent homeopathic option to deal with mosquito bites. The medicine serves dual purpose. It can be effectively used before (Prophylactic) as well as after the bite. Caladium Seguinum can also be used to treat mosquito and fly bites. 
  4. Ledum and Lachesis: Ledum is the best homeopathic remedy against poisonous animal bites. When it comes to snake bites, nothing can be more helpful than Ledum. The area affected by the bite turns slightly bluish. The area feels cold and there is a pricking pain and inflammation. Sepsis from animal bite can also be prevented by Ledum.

Lachesis is equally helpful against snake bites and other poisonous insect bites. This medicine is recommended in case the injury site appears bluish purple. There may be a haemorrhage, with the blood appearing few shades darker (almost black in some cases).

Though Ledum and Lachesis provide great relief, getting medical assistance is still very important:

  1. At times, an insect sting can leave a person traumatised. There may be a stinging pain with swelling and tingling. Aconitum Napellus is the best option to treat and deal with such situations.
  2. Urtica Urens is helpful against allergic reactions resulting from insect bites and some foodstuffs (shellfish).
  3. Histaminum is useful against insect bites and hay fever.
  4. Cantharis provides relief from stings and bites resulting in inflammation and redness.

Most of the Homeopathic medicines provide almost instant relief from insect bites and stings. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Ulcerative Colitis - What You Need To Know?

Ulcerative Colitis - What You Need To Know?

Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the lining of the intestine and the rectum. It is located just above the anus. Patients suffering from ulcerative colitis tend to have small ulcers in their rectum and the colon. These eventually flare up leading to diarrhea, bloody stools, anemia and abdominal pain. The inflammation starts from the rectum and eventually, spreads to the colon. Ulcerative Colitis tends to flare up and remit in an alternate phase. The remission can last from few weeks to few years.

Methods adopted to diagnose Ulcerative Colitis-
Ulcerative Colitis is very similar to an inflammatory bowel disease known as Crohn’s disease. The only differentiating factor is the fact that, ulcerative colitis affects the colon whereas, Crohn’s disease affects the digestive system and the small intestine. A doctor might prescribe certain tests such as the colonoscopy, blood tests, CT scan, pill camera, stool sample tests etc.

Why is surgery necessary to treat Ulcerative Colitis?
An estimated 40 percent of all Ulcerative Colitis patients need to undergo surgery to recover completely. The reason surgery becomes necessary to treat ulcerative colitis are the following:

  1. Drug therapy and medication become ineffective.
  2. Without undergoing surgery, the condition might increase the risk of developing cancer.
  3. The colon has the risk of getting ruptured if surgery is not performed on time.
  4. There could be excessive bleeding.
  5. Toxic megacolon might set in.

Types of surgery available to treat Ulcerative Colitis
A procedure where the entire colon is removed is known as the colectomy. In case both the colons are removed, the procedure is termed as proctocolectomy. In this procedure, an external pouch needed to be attached to the stoma that collects the stools. There is another method known as pouch surgery.

Pelvic pouch or ileal pouch is also termed as IPAA. This procedure doesn’t involve permanent stoma. In this procedure, both the colon and the rectum are eradicated from the body. The small intestine is then used to form a J-shaped pouch, that serves as the new rectum. The pouch is then connected to the anus. The whole procedure is done via two surgeries.

What are the surgical complications of this procedure?

  1. There could be an excessive bowel movement.
  2. There are instances where an inflammation of the pouch is observed. This condition is known as pouchitis.
  3. There could be a situation of intestinal blockage from adhesion due to surgery.
  4. There could be pouch failure that can happen inside within 5 few years. This is observed in 4 out of 100 patients who are treated. In this case, the patient should go for a permanent ileectomy.

Vertebroplasty - How It Can Help Manage Pain?

Vertebroplasty - How It Can Help Manage Pain?

Vertebroplasty means shaping the backbone i.e. vertebra for backbone and plasty is related to shape. This is an outpatient procedure done to treat compression fractures of the spinal cord. The backbone is made up of multiple small bones which are stacked one on top of the other with a filling material in between that is known as vertebrae. The stack of bones are held in place by the soft, elastic vertebral material.

Vertebroplasty & similar procedure called kyphoplasty is a non-surgical procedure where collapsed vertebrae is brought back to shape by injecting medical bone cement under fluroscopy / image intensifier in OT, thereby relieving pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves with special canula directed to the core of vertebral body. Indicated in osteoporotic vertebrae, spinal fracture, metastatic tumour or primary tumour of spine. This technique has replaced major surgery done earlier to reshape & fix vertabrae.

Technique: Bone cement, in a semisolid state, is injected into the weakened or fractured bone space. Once this solidifies, it provides additional support to the spine, enabling normal movement. It also helps in reducing the pain significantly and improves the overall mobility.

Procedure:

In what takes about an hour, the following steps are done. Earlier, a few decades ago, this would be an open surgical procedure. However, with advance technology, now it is done using a small incision

  • Local anesthesia is given in the area that needs to be operated
  • A biopsy needle is inserted into the fractured space with the help of an X-ray
  • The acrylic bone cement is injected into the bone space with a needle to fill up the space, once it solidifies, it stabilizes the vertebral space
  • The needle is removed and the incision is covered with a bandage
  • Usually the patient is sent home in an hour’s time unless the overall condition is really bad
  • There could be some soreness at the site where injection is given, but one can notice a significant reduction in pain from the day of the procedure
  • There is also improvement in mobility while doing daily chores
  • The pain relief can last up to 3 years after the procedure
  • Returning back to normal activities takes about 3 to 4 days after the procedure

When to use this procedure?

Vertebroplasty is usually done in case of non-radicular pain that is intractable. In most cases, they do not respond to traditional therapies including physiotherapy, pain medications and even surgery. The pain could be due to:

Benefits of using vertebroplasty for managing pain 

  1. Minimally invasive
  2. Effective way to get relief
  3. Improves mobility
  4. Cost-effective
  5. Reduces need for long-term use of painkillers
  6. Stabilizes the spine and prevents further collapse

Your symptom of morning headache or heaviness of the head is of concern as there are a number of possible diagnoses. These include brain tumour, migraine, a tension type of headache, obstructive sleep apnoea and caffeine withdrawal. Vestibular problems A heavy head feeling can be a result of a vestibular disorder. The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that control balance and eye movements. Symptoms of a vestibular disorder include: tinnitus, or ringing in the ear hearing loss vertigo, or feeling like the room is spinning stumbling when walking headaches Sinus infection A sinus infection, also called sinusitis, occurs when the nasal cavities become inflamed. Sinusitis is usually caused by a virus, and may be part of a cold. Sinus infections can also be caused by bacteria or rarely a fungal infection of the sinuses. A sinus infection can cause facial pressure and pain, as well as nasal congestion and headaches. These symptoms are sometimes also described as heavy-headedness. Knowing the symptoms of sinusitis can help you better to treat it. Treatment depends on the underlying condition. You should tell your doctor about any other symptoms you’re experiencing along with head heaviness. Your doctor will take a medical history and perform a physical exam. They may also do some blood tests to check for other conditions, like anemia or a thyroid disorder. Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may refer you to a neurologist to look for brain abnormalities or an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor to check for inner ear problems. HOMOEOPATHY CAN HELP.
