Infertility is a medical condition which is characterised by problems in successful conception, even after prolonged and frequent unprotected sex amongst a couple. Infertility may occur due to problems with either the male, the female partner and in many cases both of them. This condition can cause much strife in a relationship not just within the individuals but also be a cause for social embarrassment. The causes of infertility could be-
Testicular injury or deformed testis,
Irregular menstrual periods,
Problems with erections,
Uterus is ill-shaped,
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome,
Scanty sperm count,
Blockage of the fallopian tube.
Ayurveda and Infertility-
According to Ayurvedic scriptures, infertility occurs when there is a deficiency of nutrients in the Shukra Dhatu of an individual. This might occur as a result of indigestion and excessive toxic content in the human body. This could be caused due to excessive consumption of spicy foods or if they have chronic stress or anxiety. The Ayurvedic remedies boost the nutrition of the Shukra Dhatu in order to boost fertility. The most potent Ayurvedic herbs which can cure infertility are as follows:
A prescribed consumption of the powder of dried banyan bark along with sugar might help to cure infertility.
The inclusion of cumin and turmeric powder in regulated dosages in your daily food might also help to facilitate fertility.
A consumption of the root of the herb Ashwagandha for 3 times a day has also been shown to be beneficial.
A daily consumption of the powder of Vanari Kalpa in warm milk might help in curing any problems related to the ejaculation of semen.
Consuming a mixture of the powder of Vrushya vati in warm milk, it might help to increase the sperm count.
The consumption of Ayurvedic preparation of phalasarpi (a mixture of the herbs Kustha, manjistha, Triphala, tagara, haldi etc.) might help to deal with the problems of infertility in women.
Yoga also has many effective asanas or poses which help boost both male and female fertility and thus may help in correcting infertility caused due to physical factors such as injuries or deformities.
I have delivered a baby through c section last month. How many days exactly should o wait before I can join gym to workout or start exercises.
Diwali is a time when people gorge on sweets and put on weight which in turn affects their health. To make this Diwali a healthy one, replace the ghee-laden deserts and sweets with a healthier alternative like fruits and low calorie sweets. You can also have some dry fruits like almonds, raisins or dates for desert, eat home-made sweets like kheer, shrikhand, etc. It is also important to snack wisely during this time as most people end up overeating. So, eat wisely and remember, just because it is a festival, there is no need to ditch your diet.
With delicious foods all around, its obvious that we are tempted. But keeping ourselves hydrated is one of the best and effective tip to prevent after-festival health problems. A simple way to achieve this is to frequently sip water and be hydrated. In addition to cleansing waste materials from the body, staying hydrated also helps satiate your hunger pangs.
Stay away from artificial sweets:
It is advised to stay away from artificial sweeteners that contain aspartame as they are reported to cause brain tumour or cancer. In addition to this, using chemical preservatives in sweets also puts you at a higher risk of kidney or liver damage, asthma and cancer. So this Diwali, opt for sweets that are made from sugar or other healthy alternatives like jaggery and live a healthy life.
Take care of your health:
People suffering from diabetes need to be extra cautious during Diwali as they are surrounded with plenty of sweets. Apart from restricting their consumption of sweets, these people are advised to keep a check on sugar and starch intake. Also, the bursting sound and smoke liberated from crackers might cause health issues in old people and those suffering from lung problems.
Drink in moderation:
Although Diwali signifies celebration and enjoyment, it is better if you limit your alcohol intake. Excess alcohol not only causes dehydration, gives you a hangover and makes you look tired, but it also increases the risk of accidents on the auspicious day. It’s best to avoid alcohol during Diwali and instead opt for some fresh fruit juices and soups.
Keep a first aid kit handy:
With crackers and fireworks everywhere, there are chances that someone might experience health issues. Hence, it is recommended that people keep a first aid kit that includes inhalers, eye drops and creams to treat burns are very handy during this time as they may help prevent major complications in case of an eventuality.
Wear earplugs or masks:
The bustling sound of crackers might damage ear drums in some people and also cause increased heart rate in old people and those with cardiac problems. To avoid such health issues, people are recommended to wear earplugs as exposure to loud sounds during this festival is unavoidable. Also, people who have lung problems like COPD or asthma might suffer from breathlessness due to the smoke. Such patients are advised to use masks especially while going out.
Other safety tips:
Apart from the above listed health tips for a safe Diwali, other precautions include not wearing clothes made from nylon or terrycot (as they are inflammable). Sweets especially those made from perishable items like milk or khoya should be avoided as they tend to cause food poisoning if had later than its expiry date.
Follow these simple tips and celebrate this diwali with fun and frolic.

Polycystic ovary disease or PCOD is a kind of hormonal disorder in which a woman produces a surplus of male hormones like testosterone.
High levels of male hormones produce symptoms like irregular ovulation or no ovulation at all. In simple words, women with PCOD or PCOS don’t release a mature egg from their ovaries every month resulting in infertility. PCOD affects one in 10 women worldwide.
Women suffering from PCOD suffer from symptoms like heavy vaginal bleeding. This is because, as they don’t ovulate and produce the hormone Progesterone like normal women do and have normal periods, the lining of their uteri becomes thick leading to heavy bleeding and sometimes uterine cancer.
The other common symptoms of PCOS are:
- Weight gain
- Oily skin
- Heart problems
- Irregular periods
- Mood swings and depression
There is a propensity for developing diabetes as well in PCOS affected, as a number of women with PCOD are resistant to the action of the hormone insulin used for sugar metabolism. This means that it takes larger than normal amounts of insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Though fairly common, PCOD has no surefire cure in mainstream allopathic medicine but Ayurveda can help alleviate PCOD symptoms in a big way.
PCOD - How Ayurveda Can Help?
- In Ayurveda, PCOD is caused due to an imbalance of any of the two doshas - Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water). Aggravated Pitta causes contamination of the dhatus or tissues like blood and plasma. This causes a buildup of toxins or ama in the body.
- In PCOS patients, these toxins get accumulated in the channels of the mind, leading to an imbalance of hormones secreted by the pituitary gland. This results in an imbalance of female hormones and causes the formation of ovarian cysts which is nothing but a collection of fluids within the ovary, anovulatory periods or periods with no ovulation etc.
Ayurvedic herbal remedies for PCOD
Ayurveda works on these problems:
-Correcting hormonal imbalance
- Reducing high cholesterol levels
-Treatment for insulin resistance
Herbs like Ashoka (saraca asoca), Dashamoola are amongst a group of herbs which are used to prepare Sukumara Kashaya like Ashwagandha, Eranda, Shatavari etc for correcting hormonal imbalance.
Other drugs for curing PCOS are-
1. Shatavari or Asparagus racemosus
This helps mainly in promoting normal development of ovarian follicles. It also regulates periods and aids in revitalizing the female reproductive system. Shatavari also helps in controlling high levels of insulin due to PCOS, due to its phytoestrogen or natural plant based estrogen levels.
Guduchi is a powerful anti- inflammatory herb. We know that chronic inflammation in body tissues is the root cause for insulin imbalance and ovarian cysts in women. This herb helps in revitalizing body tissues and lowering insulin resistance.
3. Shatapushpa or fennel
Fennel seeds are used as a supplement as the phytoestrogens in them bring down inflammation and control insulin resistance.
Triphala is rich in vitamin C- a powerful natural antioxidant that helps in reducing inflammation by reducing free radicals. Hence this remedy is excellent for cleansing and detoxifying systems and is therefore best taken prior to taking any other Ayurvedic medicines to improve outcome.
5. Aloe Vera- Kumari (Aloe barbadensis)
Aloe Vera is yet another Ayurvedic herb that is extremely beneficial in treating PCOS as it helps in regularizing menstrual cycles and promote normal menstruation. It also normalizes hormonal imbalance. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is an endocrine disorder in women, in which the female hormones, progesterone and estrogen, are imbalanced. This imbalance leads to the formation of cysts (benign masses) in the ovaries. PCOS tends to affect your heart functions, fertility, menstrual cycle and appearance.
There are certain symptoms, which can be indicative of PCOS; these symptoms tend to begin as a woman's menstrual cycle starts. In certain cases, however, PCOS may also affect a woman in her mid age. PCOS can also cause excessive hair growth in unwanted places like above the upper lip,chin,arms and chest like a male.
The symptoms are:
- Increase in the production of male hormone, leads to development of male characteristics
- The size of the breasts may reduce
- The tone and the texture of the voice may change and become similar to a man's voice
- Hair may start to fall
- You may suffer from acne and pimple breakouts on your face
- It can lead to sudden weight gain
- It may affect a woman's fertility
- It may lead to pain in the pelvis
Other symptoms: Apart from these symptoms, a woman may also experience other health complications such as high levels of bad cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Causes: The causes of PCOS are not well known, however, the likely causes are genetics and hormonal complications. If someone in the family has PCOS, then the risk of being affected by PCOS rises significantly. The other likely cause is the overproduction of the male hormone androgen in the female body. Although androgen is a male hormone, the female body also produces it in trace amounts. However, in some cases, when it is overproduced, it might impair the ovulation process.
Diagnosis and Treatment: Once the condition is diagnosed, there are certain treatments, which are recommended for the patient. The condition in itself does not have a cure, but the symptoms can only be controlled. Medications to control the androgen levels in the female body may be administered if you have androgen hormone complication. A balanced diet and an exercise regimen can be chalked out to control body weight and regulate blood sugar levels. If PCOS leads to ovulation problems, then medications to facilitate ovulation may be advised. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
डायबिटीज ऐसी बीमारी है, जो महिला-पुरुष,बच्चे, बूढ़े, जवान। किसी को भी हो सकती है। शुगर उस चयापचय बीमारी को कहा जाता है, जिसमें व्यक्ति के खून में शुगर (रक्त शर्करा) की मात्रा जरुरत से ज्यादा हो जाती है। ऐसा इसलिए होता है क्यों कि या तो व्यक्ति से शरीर में इन्सुलिन का उत्पादन प्रयाप्त मात्रा में नहीं हो रहा हो या वह व्यक्ति के शरीर की कोशिकाएं से सही व्यवहार नहीं कर रही हो।
जब तक शुगर की बीमारी की असली वजह नहीं जान लेते तब तक यह रोग कभी भी ठीक नहीं होगा। जब शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रोल की बढ़त होती है। तो वो हमारी कोशिकाओं में जाकर उनके चारो ओर चिपक जाता है। और हमारे रक्त में विद्यमान इन्सुलिन हमारी कोशिकाओं तक सही तरीके नही पहुँच पाता। इसके लिए हमें इन्सुलिन के टिके लगवाने पडते हैं। कहने का ये मतलब है कि सुगर का सम्बन्ध कोलेस्ट्रोल से होता है ना की शुगर (चीनी) से।
एलोपैथी में तो कह दिया गया है कि उनके पास इससे होने वाली परेशानियों से बचने के उपाय तो हैं। पर इसे जड़ से ख़त्म करने की कोई दवा नहीं है। कुछ अन्य चिकित्सा पद्धतियों में ज़रूर इसे जड़ से ख़त्म कर देने का दावा किया जाता है। अब किसके दावों में कितनी वास्तविकता है इसमें ना पड़ते हुए हम जानेंगे ऐसे घरेलू नुखों के बारे में जो आपकी शुगर को ख़त्म भले ना कर सकें, पर राहत जरूर दे सकते हैं। ख़ास बात ये है कि ये सभी चीजें हर जगह बहुत आसानी से मिल जाती हैं। बल्कि कुछ तो आपके किचन में मौजूद भी होंगी।तो आये जानते हैं कुछ ख़ास उपचार जिनसे शुगर पर लगेगी लगाम।
करेले का खास गुण ये है कि इससे पंक्रियज को इन्सुलिन रिलीज़ करने में मदद मिलती है। और ये ब्लड ग्लूकोज के लेलव को कम करता है। रोजाना सुबह दो-तीन करेले लेकर उनका बीज निकाल दें और फिर उनका जूस निकालें। इस जूस में थोड़ा सा पानी मिलाकर खाली पेट पी जाएं। ये नुस्खा दो महीने आजमाकर देखें। फ़ायदा आपको महसूस होने लगेगा।
भिन्डी में भी ब्लड ग्लूकोज लेवल को कम करने का खास गुण होता है। थोड़ी सी भिन्डी लेकर उसके दोनों सिरे काट दें। फिर फोर्क की मदद से उनमें कई जगह छेद कर दें। अब इन्हें एक गिलास पानी में डुबोकर रात भर के लिए रख दें। सुबह ये पानी खाली पेट पी जाएं। कुछ ही हफ़्तों में आप अपने शुगर लेवल को डाउन होता पाएंगे।
एलोवेरा की खासियत है कि ये फास्टिंग ब्लड ग्लूकोज को कम करने में अहम रोल अदा करके Type 2 Diabetes के मरीजों को काफी राहत देता है। एलोवेरा तेज पत्ते और हल्दी को साथ लेने से ब्लड शुगर कण्ट्रोल करने में ख़ास मदद मिलती है। इसे लेने का तरीका बड़ा आसान है। आधा चम्मच पिसा तेज पत्ता, आधा चम्मच पिसी हल्दी, एक बड़े चम्मच एलोवेरा के साथ दोपहर और रात के खाने से पहले लें।
4. कड़ी पत्ता
अपने खान-पान में कड़ी पत्ता इस्तेमाल करते ही है। बस रोजाना सुबह खाली पेट इसकी 8-10 ताजी पत्तियां चबा जाया करें। इससे शुगर में तो आराम मिलता ही है हाई कोलेस्ट्रोल लेवल को कम करने और मोटापा पर काबू रकने में भी मदद मिलेगी।
आपने ये तो सुना ही होगा कि आंवला विटमिन सी से भरपूर होता है। और शरीर को ताकत देता है। पर शायद आप ये नहीं जानते कि आवंला पेनक्रियाज को सही फंक्शन करने में भी मदद करता है।
दो-तीन आंवले लेकर उनका बीज निकालें। इन आंवलों को अच्छी तरह घिसकर पेस्ट लीजिए।अब पेस्ट को कपड़े में रखकर अच्छी तरह निचोड़िए। जो रस निकले उसमें एक कप पानी मिलाकर सुबह खाली पेट पी जाएं। दो महीने रोजाना सुबह इसे पीने से ही आपको फर्क दिखने लगेगा।
अमरूद में भरपूर फाइबर और विटमिन सी होता है। ये शुगर को रोकने में बहुत कारगर है। शुगर के मरीज इसका छिलका उतारकर खाएं। पर दिन भर में दो-तीन अमरूद से ज्याना ना खाएं।
7. आम के पत्ते
आम के पत्तों में ब्लड में इन्सुलिन लेवल को संयमित करने का गुण होता है इसलिए आम के 10-15 मुलायम पत्ते रात को एक गिलास पानी में भिगो दें। सुबह इस पानी को खाली पेट पी जाएं। अगर आपको रोज-रोज ये सब करना न जमें तो बहुत से आम के पत्ते लेकर उन्हें छांव में सुखा लें। उसके बाद उन्हें पीसकर किसी बोतल या डिब्बे में रख लें। ये पाउडर रोजाना सुबह शाम आधा-आधा खाकर पानी पी लें।
8. लो फैट
लो फैट दही और स्किम्ड/डबल टोंड दूध ही लें।
9. ग्रीन टी पीना अच्छा है
चाय के साथ हाई फाइबर बिस्किट या फीके बिस्किट ही लें और अगर ब्लडप्रेशर है तो नमकीन बिस्किट भी खा सकते हैं।
10. थोडा थोडा खाएं
दिन भर में 4-5 बार फल और सब्जियां खाएं लेकिन एक ही बार में सब कुछ खाने की बजाय बार-बार थोड़ा-थोड़ा करके खाएं।
फल अपनाएं यह एनी चीजों के साथ शुगर में भी फायदेमंद होते हैं। लेकिन ध्यान रहे सभी नही फलों में चेरी, स्ट्रॉबेरी, सेब, संतरा, अनार, पपीता,मोसंबी आदि खाएं।
