Natural Ways to Combat Lifestyle Diseases Like Diabetes and Hypertension

The lifestyle we lead plays an important role. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to overcome many diseases as it helps in bringing the blood pressure to normal and in turn reduce the risks of diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. Factors like smoking, diet, stress and sedentary lifestyle can lead to hypertension and diabetes. Hypertension is known as silent killer as it is symptomless.

There are various traditional medicines known to lower the blood pressure. Also, there are certain herbs that help in controlling blood pressure and preventing other diseases.

Some of these herbs are:

  1. Basil: This herb has a strong aroma and can be used in the preparation of many foods. It also helps in lowering the blood pressure, though for a brief time. Adding freshly chopped or torn basil to soups, salads, pastas and casseroles not only enhance the taste but are also beneficial for health.
  2. Cinnamon: This herb requires some effort to add in the diet, but is helpful in maintain the blood pressure. Diabetic people should have cinnamon everyday in some or the other way. Cinnamon can be included by sprinkling over cereals, oats, coffee, stews and curries.
  3. Cardamom: Cardamom if consumed daily can be helpful in bringing down blood pressure and in turn controlling hypertension and diabetes. Cardamom is very popular in South Asia, the seeds can be powdered and used in stews, soups or baking. It not only has an enhanced flavor but is also packed with numerous health benefits.
  4. Flaxseed: This is very rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are believed to lower the blood pressure and also protect the body against atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. They are known for reducing cholesterol levels, and improving glucose tolerance thus acting as antioxidant. Flaxseeds can be added in smoothies and soups or baked goods.
  5. Garlic: Garlic often synonymous with bad breath and pungent seasoning has immense health benefits. It dilates and relaxes the blood vessels allowing the blood to flow freely and in turn reduces the blood pressure. 
  6. Ginger: Adding ginger to the diet helps to control the blood pressure. It relaxes the blood vessels and improves the circulation of the blood. Ginger can be used in sweets, savories and beverages and is very common in Asian food.
  7. Celery Seed: This is a diuretic and in China it is used to treat hypertension. This can be used to flavor stews, soups, savory dishes and casseroles. Both the seeds and the plant have various benefits and uses of their own.
  8. Hawthorn: This herb is used to treat high blood pressure in China. Decoctions of the herb have health benefits such as reduction of blood pressure, controlling hypertension and blood circulation.

Shortness of Breath Treatment - साँसों की कमी और उपचार

Shortness of Breath Treatment - साँसों की कमी और उपचार

साँसों की कमी की बिमारी को हाइपोजेमिया या हाइपोक्सिया कहते हैं. इसमें हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन की खतरनाक रूप से कमी हो जाती है. जाहिर है बिना ऑक्सीजन के हमारा ज़िंदा रहना नामुमकिन है. बिना ऑक्सीजन  के हमारे शरीर को कोई भी अंग अपना काम नहीं कर पाएगा. ऑक्सीजन हमारे लिए प्राण वायु है. यानी ये है तो हम हैं ये नहीं तो हम नहीं. हमारे शरीर के सभी कामों के लिए प्रत्यक्ष या अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से ऑक्सीजन जिम्मेदार है. हमारे शरीर के उतकों और कोशिकाओं में ऑक्सीजन रक्त के माष्यम से पहुंचता है. रक्त में मौजूद आयरन से क्रिया करके हिमोग्लोबिन सभी जरूरतमंद अंगों तक पहुंचता है. हमारे शरीर में ये प्रक्रिया लगातार चलती रहती है. जब हम सो रहे होते हैं तब भी ये प्रक्रिया चलती ही रहती है. लेकिन जब किसी कारणवश ऑक्सीजन का स्तर नीचे आ जाता है तब इसे हाइपोजेमिया या हाइपोक्सिया कहा जाता है. इसका मुख्य लक्षण है साँस लेने में तकलीफ होना.

कैसी होती है हाइपोजेमिया की जांच?
हाइपोजेमिया की जांच डॉक्टर आपके शरीर में नजर आने वाले लक्षणों के आधार पर करता है. ऑक्सीजन के स्तर रक्त की जाँच करने के लिए आपके किसी भी आर्टरी से रक्त का नमूना लिया जाता है और फिर उसमें ऑक्सीजन के स्तर की जाँच की जाती है. इसके अलावा, ऑक्सीमीटर के द्वारा भी, शरीर में ऑक्सीजन के स्तर की जाँच की जा सकती है. ये बहुत आसान प्रक्रिया है जिसमें एक छोटी सी क्लिप को आपकी ऊँगली पर लगाकर रक्त में ऑक्सीजन की मात्रा को छोटी सी स्क्रीन पर दिखाया जाता है.

हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन का सामान्य स्तर?
हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन का सामान्य स्तर 95 से 100 तक होता है. लेकिन जब ये 90% से नीचे जाने लगता है तो इसे ऑक्सीजन का कम स्तर माना जाता है. ऑक्सीजन के स्तर को बना कर रखने का एक तरीका यह भी है कि अस्थमा जैसी बीमारी को नियंत्रण में रखा जाए. इस बीमारी के कारण, बहुत से हो सकते हैं, जिनमें से फेंफड़ों के रोग जैसे अस्थमा, न्यूमोनिया यानी (सी.ओ.पी.डी) की सभी बीमारियां शामिल हैं. इसके अलावा शरीर में ऑक्सीजन की कमी का सबसे प्रमुख कारण आयरन की कमी होता है. इस बीमारी के लक्षण, साँसों में तकलीफ, हृदय गति बढ़ जाना, साँसे तेज हो जाना, त्वचा का रंग नीला हो जाना, अकारण ही पसीना निकलना, मानसिक भ्रम हो जाना के रूप में सामने आते हैं.

हाइपोजेमिया के कारण
आमतौर पर तो ये किसी को भी हो सकता है लेकिन बीमारीग्रस्त इंसान को होने की संभावना ज्यादा रहती है. ये उन लोगों में ज्यादा हो सकता है जिन्हें साँसों से संबंधित अन्य परेशानी जैसे अस्थमा, निमोनिया आदि बीमारियां होती हैं. इसका कारण हमारे शरीर में होने वाली आयरन की कमी है.

हाइपोजेमिया के लक्षण

  • हृदय गति बढ़ जाना.
  • त्वचा का नीला पड़ना.
  • सीने में दर्द होना.
  • सांस लेने में तकलीफ होना.
  • साँसे तेज हो जाना.
  • बिना शारीरिक मेहनत के पसीना आना.
  • त्वचा की नमी खोना.
  •  मानसिक भ्रम.

कैसे बचा जा सकता है हाइपोजेमिया से
जैसा कि आमतौर पर कुछ सावधानियां बरतकर हम किसी भी बिमारी की संभावना को कुछ हद तक कम कर सकते हैं. ठीक उसी तरह हाइपोजेमिया से से बचने के लिए भी कुछ प्राथमिक उपाय कर सकते हैं. हलांकि इस तरह की गंभीर बीमारियों को बेहतर इलाज के द्वारा ही ठीक किया जा सकता है. फिर भी निम्लिखित सावधानियां बरतकर हम इसकी संभावना को जरुर कम कर सकते हैं.

  • रोजाना पांच से दस मिनट एक्सरसाइज जरूर करें.
  • आयरन से भरपूर भोजन करें.
  • कमरा बंद ना रखें, सबुह के समय खिड़कियां जरूर खोलें.
  • पानी पर्याप्त मात्रा में पीयें, रोज 8 से 10 गिलास पानी पीयें.
  • अपने घर में पेड़-पौधे जरूर लगायें जिससे हरियाली बनी रहे.

नोट :- यदि आपको इस तरह की कोई समस्या होती है तो प्राथमिक तौर पर आप इन्हें आजमा सकते हैं लेकिन चिकित्सकीय परामर्श आवश्यक है.

You need to see a physician for increased fatty acid cholesterol levels. Regarding your varicose veins, avoid standing for long and also please get a venous Doppler scan and see a vascular surgeon. Your Doppler report and clinical findings will decide whether you will require an intervention or not.

1. I am taking amloz at for blood pressure. Can I take any other medicine (cheaper) inlieu of this medicine. Please advice. 2. I am a case of obesity (approx 125 kgs) can you suggest some weight loss medicines.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Tonicard (homeo) for weight loss; 1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result you will feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Consult me in private for detailed treatment.

Hypertension: Causes, Risk Factors and Treatment

General Physician, Mumbai
Hypertension: Causes, Risk Factors and Treatment

Hypertension or high blood pressure can be defined as a condition wherein the thrust of the blood against the walls of the arteries is excessively high, thereby increasing chances of health hazards. The amount of blood that is pumped by the heart and the resistance put up by the arteries usually determine one’s blood pressure count. For instance, if the heart pumps excess amount of blood while the arteries shrink, the blood pressure can soar high. High blood pressure or hypertension may give rise to symptoms such as nosebleeds, short breaths or headaches.

Causes:
There are two types of hypertension, one is primary and the other is secondary. For essential or primary hypertension, there is no significant reason and the condition slowly develops over years. The secondary one appears all of a sudden as a result of a repressed condition such as thyroid or kidney problems, defective blood vessels and certain medications such as pain-killers, cold relievers, pills for birth control and others.

Other factors responsible for hypertension are:

  1. Age: The risks increase over the years
  2. Family history
  3. Being obese or overweight
  4. Being physically inactive
  5. Consuming too much of sodium or salt in your diet
  6. Little intake of potassium and Vitamin D in meals
  7. Being subject to high level of stress
  8. Chronic medical disorders such as diabetes
  9. Alcohol or drug abuse

Treatments:

Medications:

  • Thiazide diuretics can be administered. These help to flush out excess water and sodium from the body in order to reduce excessive volume of blood thrusting against the arteries.
  • Beta blockers: They ease the workload of the heart by opening up the blood vessels.
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors help inhibit the production of chemicals narrowing the blood vessels
  • Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) are used to obstruct and curb the action of the chemicals contracting the blood vessels
  • Calcium channel blockers help to loosen the blood vessel muscles
  • Renin inhibitors can delay the production of an enzyme called ‘renin’ by the kidneys that increase one’s blood pressure

Lifestyle Changes:

  • One should follow a well-balanced diet that comprises of less salt.
  • There is no substitute to regular exercises. Exercising regularly helps one maintain a balanced body weight that further reduces the chances of this condition.
  • Abstaining from smoking and limiting alcohol intake helps provide that holistic cover to all the treatment modes mentioned above. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I'm 22 years old. I recently had shortness of breath and palpitations. I went to the doctor and he told my bp was normal and prescribed me rabeprazole twice a day. I took it once and feel a bit better now. Is my treatment going right? And I'm taking minocycline for acne. Can I take it along with rabeprazole?
