You should take ayurveda medicine because ayurveda cures. If you don't want to take any medicine then you should put 2 drop of pure cow ghee (indian) 2 times a day. After 1 month your complain will cure about 70-80%

Migraine - 5 Best Ayurvedic Ways To Treat It!

Migraine - 5 Best Ayurvedic Ways To Treat It!

Migraine is a severe headache affecting 1 or more in 10 people, and is basically caused by excessive stimulation of blood vessels. Indigestion, anger, stress, intake of salty and spicy food, excessive exposure to sunlight, skipping meals, tension headaches and alcohol are some common causes of this intolerable headache. Ayurveda has numerous effective remedies for migraine. Here are a few solutions to help you fight this problem.

  1. Shirolepa and shiro dhara are popularly used ayurveda treatments on all types of migraine patients. Shirolepa is the application of effective herbal pastes containing camphor, sandalwood, jatamansi and many more on the affected area. Shiro dhara is the process of pouring stream of thin to thick liquids over the scalp for a specified amount of time. These remedies are very commonly used and are known for their successful healing properties.
  2. Ayurveda presents to you a number of ancient herbs that guarantee you 100 percent relief from migraine. These may include bala, kumari, mallika, amalaki, sariva, yastimadhu, hareetaki and many more. These, when blended and mixed in appropriate quantities, give amazing results.
  3. Apart from these ayurveda treatments, a number of ayurveda medicines are also available. Godnati bhasma, Chandrakala rasa, Kamadugha rasa (mouktika yukta), Bhoonimbadi khada , Shirashooladi vajra rasa, Pathyadi khada are used in the treatment of various types of migraines.
  4. If due to some reason you are unable to access these ayurveda treatments and want immediate relief from the severe headaches, then don’t worry. There are a number of ayurveda home remedies that give you excellent results in a very short period of time. You can use an ice pack and rub it on your temples to reduce pain. Tinospora cordifolia, commonly known as giloy, can be taken with raw honey for instant relief.
  5. You can drop a few drops of paste of saffron and ghee into each of your nostrils and inhale deeply. This can give you amazing results and can reduce your intolerable pain. Applying sandalwood on forehead or a paste of black pepper, rice with bringaraaja juice on your forehead will do wonders to your migraine pain.

Thus, try to avoid things that trigger your pain including alcohol, caffeine, onions, beans, nuts, hunger, stress, pressure and many others, and follow these remedies to help you get rid of your headache that gets worse with time. Try not to skip meals and keep your body hydrated as much as you can. It is advisable to take the medicines and treatments under the guidance of an Ayurveda physician

Science suggests that marijuana has anti-carcinogenic elements n it's cure to more than 20 life threatening diseases like Alzheimer n depression etc. Why is it still illegal? What actually makes it illegal? Does it cause more harm than a cigarette or alcohol? Please substantiate. Thank you.

Science suggests that marijuana has anti-carcinogenic elements n it's cure to more than 20 life threatening diseases ...
There are no proven benefits of marijuana over cancer. It use as a treatment for depression or alzheimer's is questionable just for the reason of risk benefit ratios. It's illegal to use marijuana sine it is a psychoactive substance prone for dependence and association with other drugs and antisocial activities. Also marijuana or cannabis may precipitate psychosis with long term use. Hence it's use for any indication is simply a leap in the dark, unless we have evidence based studies for active ingredients of the substance.

Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

No, there is no connection between vaccines and autism.

Autism is a condition that affects the brain and makes communicating and interacting with other people more difficult. The cause (s) of autism — also known as autism spectrum disorder (asd) or pervasive developmental disorder (pdd) — is unknown. However, genetics, differences in brain anatomy, and toxic substances in the environment are thought to contribute to children developing the condition.

So how did the idea that vaccines play a role get started? Much of the blame lies with a study published in 1998 that suggested that the mmr (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine, or infection with the naturally occurring measles virus itself, might cause autism. Since then, numerous scientific studies have shown that there is no link between vaccines — or any of their ingredients — and autism. And the research used in that study was found to be false, the doctor who wrote it lost his medical license, and the medical journal that published it retracted the paper (this means that they believe it never should have been published).

Even with the overwhelming evidence that vaccines are safe and effective, some parents still decide not to have their children vaccinated or to delay vaccinations. But this is extremely risky because vaccine-preventable diseases like measles are still very much around. So if an unvaccinated child gets one of these preventable diseases, other people around that child could get very sick.

Sometimes, kids can have a reaction to a vaccine like a mild fever or rash. But it's clear that the risk of serious reactions to the mmr and other recommended vaccines is small compared with the health risks associated with the often-serious diseases they prevent.

If you have concerns about any vaccine recommended for your child, talk to your doctor. Ask about the benefits and risks of each vaccine and why they're so important for safeguarding your child's health.

Hi Doctor, I am suffering from insomnia. I am working as a scientist in one of the reputed company and staying alone far from my family. I can not sleep more than 3-4 h per day. I am taking diazepam/Clonazepam lowest dose on need basis. Initially it helped me and I can get sleep when I used to take it. Now, After taking sedatives also, I am not able to sleep. Because of that I am not able to do my day work efficiently. I have consulted one psychiatrist who gave me anti depressant (X). When I take it, I feel very calm. I got the 7 kg weight gain because of that and I stopped the treatment. After stopping the medicine, situation has been worsened more. I can not even express suddenly what happen to me which is completely uncontrollable. One small thought provokes 10 thoughts and 10 thoughts provoke 100 big thoughts. The tragedy of this is I can not share it to any one. I tried once, but no one is believing and taking me seriously. After some time I am able to realize that, it is not impacting any body other than me. Its my loss, I know that truth also, but I can not control my thoughts. It is my kind request to help or suggest me something as soon as possible to get out of it.

Epilepsy Symptoms, Treatment And Cause - मिरगी के लक्षण, इलाज और कारण

Epilepsy Symptoms, Treatment And Cause - मिरगी के लक्षण, इलाज और कारण

मिर्गी उन बिमारियों में से है जिनका पहचान काफी पहले ही हो चुकी थी. आज हम मिर्गी के लक्षण, कारण और उपचार को लेकर बात करेंगे. विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार मिर्गी की बीमारी तंत्रिका तंत्र में विकार आने के कारण होती है. तंत्रिका तंत्र का सीधा सम्बन्ध मस्तिष्क से है. जब मस्तिष्क में विकार आता है तो इसकी वजह से तंत्रिका तंत्र प्रभावित होता है. फिर मिर्गी का अटैक आता है और पीड़ित का शरीर अकड़ जाता है.
इस बीमारी को लेकर पहले समाज में कई तरह की भ्रांतियां प्रचलित थीं. हलांकि अब भी कई लोग इसे भुत-प्रेत से जोड़कर देखते हैं. कई बार तो मिर्गी के मरीज को पागल की तरह भी ट्रीट किया जाता है. यहाँ ये बताना आवश्यक है कि मिर्गी भी बस एक बीमारी के सिवा कुछ नहीं है. इस लिए इसके मरीजों को तुरंत किसी चिकित्सक के पास ले जाना चाहिए. हम मिर्गी के के विभिन्न पहलुओं पर प्रकाश डाल रहे हैं.

मिर्गी होने का क्या कारण है?
शरीर के सभी अंगों की संवेदनशीलता मस्तिष्क द्वारा तंत्रिका तंत्र को दिए गए निर्देश के अनुसार ही काम करती है. मस्तिष्क में स्थित न्यूरॉन्स ही तंत्रिका तंत्र को सिग्नल देते हैं. लेकिन जब इस प्रक्रिया में बाधा पहुंचती है यानी कि न्यूरॉन्स तंत्रिका तंत्र को सही निर्देश नहीं दे पाते हैं तब मरीज को मिर्गी का दौरा पड़ता है. इसमें शरीर का अंग विशेष कुछ देर के लिए निष्क्रिय हो जाता है. इसके कुछ संभावित कारण निम्लिखित हैं-

1. न्यूरोलॉजिकल प्रॉब्लम्स जैसे कि अल्जाईमर.
2. अनुवांशिक कारण यानि आपके खानदान में किसी को रहा हो या हो.
3. ब्रेन ट्यूमर
4. जन्म से ही मस्तिष्क में ऑक्सीजन का आवागमन पूर्ण रूप से बंद होने पर.
5. मस्तिष्क ज्वर और इन्सेफेलाइटिस के के संक्रमण से.
6. ब्रेन स्ट्रोक के कारण ब्लड वेसल्स को नुकसान पहुँचने से.
7. कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड की विषाक्तता से.
8. अत्यधिक मात्रा में ड्रग लेना.

क्या हैं मिर्गी के लक्षण?
जाहिर है हर बिमारी के कुछ न कुछ लक्षण होते हैं जिसके आधार पर हम इसकी पहचान करते हैं. ठीक उसी तरह मिर्गी के भी कुछ प्रारंभिक लक्षण हैं. इन लक्षणों के नजर आते ही आपको डॉक्टर के पास जाना चाहिए. हलांकि जब मिर्गी के दौरे पड़ते हैं तो एकदम स्पष्ट हो जाता है.
1. मरीज का पूर्ण रूप से बेहोश हो जाना या आंशिक रूप से मूर्छित हो जाना.
2. अपना जीभ खुद से काटना या असंयमित हो जाना.
3. सर और आँख की पुतलियों का लगातार घूमना.
4. हाथ पैर और चेहरे की मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव उत्पन्न होना.
5. मूर्छा से उठने के बाद मरीज का उलझन में होना 
6. पेट में गड़बड़ी होना.
7. चिकित्सकीय पहचान: एक्सपर्ट्स का कहना है कि इन सब लक्षणों के बावजूद मरीज का मेडिकल करने के बाद ही उसके रोग का निर्धारण किया जाता है. डॉक्टर मरीज़ के पल्स रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को चेक करते हैं. फिर इसके बाद न्यूरोलॉजिकल साइन का भी परिक्षण करते हैं. इसके साथ ही इस रोग का पता ई.ई.जी, सी.टी.स्कैन या एम.आर.आई और पेट के द्वारा लगाते हैं.

क्या है इसका उपचार और कैसे करें रोकथाम?
उपचार

मिर्गी एक बेहद संवेदनशील बिमारी है. इसके उपचार के लिए सबसे महत्वपूर्ण उपाय बताया जाता है कि जब भी मिर्गी का दौरा आए उस समय सीजर को नियंत्रित करना. इसे नियंत्रित करने के लिए एन्टी एपिलेप्टिक ड्रग थेरपी और कुछ सर्जरी होती है. हलांकि डॉक्टर्स का ये भी कहना है कि जिन लोगों पर दवाई का असर नहीं होता है उन्हें सर्जरी करने की सलाह दी जाती है. मिर्गी के मरीजों को ज्यादा वसा वाले खाने से दूर ही रहना चाहिए. खाने में ज्यादा से ज्यादा कार्बोहाइड्रेट वाले खाद्य पदार्थों का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए. इससे सीजर की आवृत्ति में कमी आती है.

रोकथाम के उपाय
आपको जानकर हैरानी हो सकती है कि अभी भी मिर्गी के कारणों का ठीक से पता नहीं लगाया जा सका है. हलांकि शिशुओं के जन्म के दौरान जेनेटिक स्क्रीनिंग की सहायता से माँ को बच्चे में इसके होने का पता लगाया जा सकता है. इससे बचने के लिए आप इस बात का ध्यान रखें की आपके सर में चोट न लगे. इसके अलावा आप ये उपाय कर सकते हैं-

1. जितना हो सके तनाव से दूर रहें.
2. खाने में संतुलित आहार लें.
3. डॉक्टर द्वारा दी गई दवा का सही तरीके से सेवन करते रहें.
4. नियमित रूप से चिकित्सक से सलाह लेते रहें.
5. पर्याप्त नींद लेना भी अत्यंत जरुरी है.
