Best Foods To Eat During Chemotherapy!

Best Foods To Eat During Chemotherapy!

11 Best foods to eat during chemotherapy:

These healing foods may help minimize chemo side effects. 

1. Carrots give chemo a boost

Carrots are a chemotherapy superfood. Certain plant compounds, which are also found in parsley, can make chemo more effective by stopping a mechanism in the body that can sometimes interfere with cancer treatment, according to a recent study by the new zealand institute for plant and food research. Researchers hope these foods “could be used to complement conventional treatments to potentially deliver better results for patients. 


2. Gravy combats dry mouth

If your dry mouth—a common side effect of chemo—makes swallowing difficult, try moistening your food by covering it with sauces, gravies, or even low fat milk. Liquefying foods in a blender will also help your meal go down a little easier.


3. Rice and bananas for diarrhea


Bland foods like rice, bananas, cooked apples, and dry toast will help bind your stool if you have diarrhea from chemotherapy. Avoid fatty foods, raw fruits, and whole grain products, which can make diarrhea worse. You can also try these home remedies for diarrhea.


4. Whole grains battle constipation


On the other hand, if you are constipated, drinking plenty of fluids and eating foods high in insoluble fiber, such as whole grain breads or cereals, dried fruits, and dried beans or peas, will aid your digestive system. The national cancer institute (nci) recommends drinking eight to 12 cups of liquid a day for those undergoing cancer treatment. Here are other sneaky ways you might be making yourself dehydrated.

5. Small meals help with appetite loss


Loss of appetite is a common side effect of chemotherapy, but instead of forcing yourself to eat three big meals, eat five or six smaller meals throughout the day to stay properly nourished and energized. Adding protein supplements and higher-calorie foods to your diet will help you sustain a healthy weight. However, always consult your doctor to personalize your diet according to your condition, diagnosis, and needs.

6. Ginger candy eases nausea


Chemo often leaves you with a queasy stomach, but ginger candy and lemon drops work like a charm. Suck on them before eating, or sip on some flat ginger ale or cola during your meal. This will help ease your dizziness and settle your stomach. These are more natural remedies for an upset stomach.


7. Custard for mouth sores


Mouth sores can make it painful to eat even the softest of foods. If treatment has left your mouth in pain, try pureed foods that are easy to swallow, such as custards, rice, eggs, porridge, and soups. The blander the better, since salt or spices can make sores even more painful. Avoid sharp or crunchy foods like crackers, chips, and raw vegetables, as well as spicy foods like hot sauces, curry dishes, salsa, and chili peppers, which also irritate sores.

8. Orange juice prevents dry mouth


Ward off dry mouth before it takes hold by filling your diet with plenty of sweet and tart foods. According to the nci, drinking liquids like lemonade and orange juice will help you produce more saliva because their tartness stimulates your saliva glands. However, do not eat or drink these foods if your treatment has left you with a sore mouth or throat, as they will make your symptoms worse. These are other fruit juices that are healthier than you thought.

9. Onion and garlic boost your immune system

Grilled, cooked, or raw, onions and garlic are highly recommended as cancer fighters, as their high levels of antioxidants have been shown to stimulate the immune system’s natural defenses against cancer. In fact, cornell researchers found that strong-flavored onions could even inhibit the growth of some cancer cells. Here are more foods with cancer-fighting abilities.

10. Lean protein maintains energy and muscle

The nci recommends eating more protein when undergoing chemotherapy to give you energy and keep your muscles strong when treatment is draining. Opt for lean proteins like eggs, fish, tofu, and chicken. Many people with cancer find that red meat takes on an unpleasant metallic taste.

11. Selenium-rich foods fight cancer

Brazil nuts, seafood, oats, and brown rice are all great sources of selenium, a cancer-fighting mineral. A study published in the journal of biological chemistry found that selenium compounds boost the immune system, allowing it to fight certain cancers like leukemia and melanoma. However, avoid eating shellfish and raw fish.

Bleaching: Extra-White Teeth

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Bleaching: Extra-White Teeth

Everybody wants that perfect smile showing off pearly white teeth, but not many have it. There is a constant try to improve the smile by making the teeth whiter and brighter. Teeth can be discolored intrinsically or extrinsically. They acquire different shades and sometimes even different colors like brown and black, making them stand out as extremely odd. Teeth change color either due to intrinsic or extrinsic reasons. Intrinsic is when minerals like fluoride get incorporated into the tooth, giving it white irregular spots. Aging also causes intrinsic staining, turning them to a pale yellow shade. This is more difficult to remove than the extrinsic coloring. Also, teeth change color due to extrinsic causes like food substances, smoking, medications, tobacco usage, poor oral hygiene, etc.

The introduction of tooth bleaching came as boon to those who were unhappy with their teeth color. Whitening can also be done in the dentist's office or at home by the patients themselves. Though over-the-counter bleaching agents are available, it is always advised to consult a dentist and then choose the appropriate material. The time of each application and the duration of the entire treatment are best decided by the dentist. The product provided by the dentist would be stronger and will produce quicker results than the ones available in the market.

At Home Bleaching: The dentist will take impressions of upper the lower jaws and fabricate customized trays. The right material is then chosen, which is applied on these trays and left in place for the desired amount of time. This needs to be repeated for a time decided by the dentist depending on how much whitening is desired. The desired color is usually achieved in about 4 weeks' time.

In-House Bleaching: This will require multiple visits to the dentist, usually about 1 to 3, of about 30 to 90 minutes each. The gums are first protected and then the bleaching agent is applied. It could require laser for activation in some cases. If the desired color is not achieved, it could be followed by a couple of applications at home. In some cases, there could be minor complications including gum irritation and increased tooth sensitivity. This is caused by the hydrogen peroxide, which is the standard component in all bleaching agents. The whitening process can be repeated at desired intervals to add that extra sparkle. Once the trays are fabricated, the bleaching agent can be used multiple times.

Teeth Whitening: Why You Should Talk to Your Dentist:

  1. Tooth bleaching can make teeth temporarily sensitive or be uncomfortable for people who already have sensitive teeth. When used incorrectly, home kits can also lead to burned and even temporarily bleached gums.
  2. Tooth whitening works best for people with yellow teeth and is less effective for people with brown teeth. If your teeth are gray or purple, tooth bleaching probably won't work at all.
  3. To be sure of tooth whitening is worth your time and money, talk to your dentist before you use an over-the-counter tooth whitening kit.

If you are not happy with the color of your teeth, talk to your dentist about what is the best method to change their color. The results could leave you surprised with a white, bright smile.

Hi lybrate-user. Usually in first trimester traveling is not safe. Second if you are not sure about pregnancy then do a home urine pregnancy test to confirm. If it is positive then Consult immediately to a gynecologist for USG abdomen to find out that everything is normal. Especially to diagnose ectopic pregnancy early. Never postpone Consultation in any case.

Durva (Doob) Grass Benefits in Hindi - दूब घास के फायदे

वैज्ञानिक नाम साइनोडान डेक्टीलान वाली दूब घास के फायदों को देखते हुए ही इसे आयुर्वेद में महाऔषधि कहा गया है. जाहिर है हमारे धार्मिक मान्यताओं और पूजा-पाठ में भी इसका उपयोग प्राचीन काल से होता आ रहा है. दूब घास को दूर्वा के नाम से भी जाना जाता है. यदि इसमें पाए जाने वाले तत्वों की बात करें तो इसमें फाइबर, प्रोटीन, फास्फोरस, पोटेशियम और कैल्शियम प्रचुरता से पाया जाता है. आइए अब बात इससे होने वाले फायदों की करते हैं.

1. दिल को स्वस्थ रखने में
आपको ये जानकार हैरानी होगी कि दूब घास का नियमित सेवन हमारे रक्त में कोलेस्ट्राल का स्तर घटाने के साथ-साथ दिल के क्रियाकलापों में भी सुधार करती है. इस तरह से दूब हमारे दिल का ख्याल भी रखती है.
2. पाचन और उल्टी में सहायक

3. शुगर में
दूब घास के फायदे आपको शुगर में भी लाभान्वित करते हैं. कई शोधों में इसके ग्लाईसेमिक क्षमता को सही पाया गया है. दूब घास का अर्क शुगर के मरीजों पर हाइपोग्लिसिमिक प्रभाव छोड़ता है.
4. तरोताजा रखने में
दूब घास को नींद न आने की बीमारी और थकान में एक प्राकृतिक उपाय के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. इसका नियमित सेवन तंत्रिका तंत्र को मबुत बनाता है आपके शरीर में सक्रियता बनाए रखता है.
5. एनीमिया में
किसी भी प्रकार के रक्त स्त्राव जैसे कि पीरियड्स के दौरान, चोट, या नाक से निकलने वाले अत्यधिक रक्त स्त्राव में ये बेहद प्रभावी है. ये लाल रक्तकोशिकाओं में वृद्धि करके हिमोग्लोबिन का स्तर भी बढ़ाता है जिससे कि एनीमिया जैसे बिमारियों में फायदा पहुँचता है.
6. प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ाने में
आपके स्वास्थ्य के हमेशा बेहतर रखने की जिम्मेदारी प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र पर होती है. दूब घास में प्रोटीन भी भरपूर होता है इसलिए इससे इम्यूनोमॉड्यूलेटरी गतिविधि को अनुकूलित करने में मदद मिलती है. इसके अलावा ये एंटीवायरल और एंटी-माइक्रोबियल गतिविधि से भी युक्त होती है. जिससे कि ये रोगों से ज्यादा मजबूती से लड़ पाती है.

त्वचा संबंधी विकारों में भी दूब घास के फायदे मददगार साबित होते हैं. ऐसा इसमें पाए जाने वाले एंटीसेप्टिक और एंटी-इन्फ्लेमेटरी एजेंट होने के कारण होता है. इससे ये खुजली, एक्जीमा, स्किन रशेज और अन्य कई समस्याओं के इलाज में उपयोगी है. हल्दी पाउडर के साथ इसे मिलाकर पेस्ट बनाएं और इसे तवचा पर लगायें.
11. मिर्गी के उपचार में

During baby's organ formation (first 4 months) one should make every effort to prevent toxins and chemicals from entering mothers body. The food she eats, the water she drinks and the air she breathes should be as clean as possible. Better to use mosquito net at night and mesh on windows to avoid mosquitoes. Keep the surroundings dry to prevent mosquito breeding. Rooms well lit from sunshine will also drive away mosquitoes. If it's hot, use a ceiling fan.

I had sex in second day of my periods without any protection. And my menses period is of 28 days. Is there any chance to conceive pregnancy?

By and large there is hardly any chance of pregnancy if you had sex on the 2nd day of periods unless your menses become suddenly irregular, which is rare. I would like to suggest that it would be better if you and your partner learn about quality sexuality relationship including normal physiology of sex organs. This will definitely improve quality of your life and this you can do with an expert sexologist. Think about it, all the best.

There is if the girls cycles are short, say 21 days. It is always sensible to get a urine pregnancy test done if she misses her period next month.
