Dear lybrate user, its always good to start on your fitness program. Every step matters. Its never too late. Aim should be to do intensive cardio/aerobic exercises for at least an hour every day. Regular mat based yoga is too slow/light to give any significant weight loss benefits. Better to go to gym and do your own exercises. Or join zumba or aerobic classes. If you are going to gym you can follow following routine. #a. 5 minutes light warm up with side jumps and stretches. #b. 10 minutes treadmill with speeds from 6-8 kmph #c. 10 mins abs and stretches. #d. 10 mins cycling with speeds from 25-32 kmph. #e 5 mins. Light weights and dumbells #6.10 mins treadmill #7.10 mins stretches and abs crunches. Stay fit. Stay healthy. Stay happy.

Pediatrician,
What type of food should be given to my baby of 6 month how and how  much.
You must give freshly prepared, home available, semisolids like rice ganji, kichri etc. You must gradually introduce one after the other as the baby gets accustomed. Mashed vegetables and fruits also are introduced as the baby starts accepting.

All About Mastitis

MD-Gynaecologist & Obstetrician , MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
All About Mastitis

Mastitis is primarily an infection that occurs inside or on women's breasts within the first three months after pregnancy. Sometimes the infection can also affect non pregnant women where it is referred to as periductal mastitis.

What are the causes and symptoms of Mastitis?
The most common reason behind such an occurrence is malfunctioning mammary ducts in pregnant women. Milk stasis or blocked milk ducts happen due to irregular feeding sessions, the baby's difficulty in sucking or not being able to attach optimally to the breast for feeding. The other plausible reason is bacterial infection that has somehow entered the ducts through a crack in the nipple area. Blocked milk ducts carry a lot of stagnant milk that provides the most suitable breeding ground for bacterial cultures. Steps must be taken so as not to pass on this bacterium to the baby who depends on breast milk almost entirely for nutrition.

1. It often manifests itself in the form of redness, swelling, pain, fever and exhaustion, resulting from inflammation of the breast tissues and mammary glands.
2. There is also a palpable warmth and tenderness of the breasts, accompanied by a general feeling of malaise.
3. Other common symptoms include lumpy formations, wedges, burning sensation especially during breast feeding.
4. Nipple discharge, body aches and relatively higher body temperatures might also occur in association.

You must consult with your doctor immediately after the appearance of similar symptoms; promptness is advisable when you are pregnant.

What problems does Mastitis cause?
1. Most commonly affecting nursing and recent mothers, Mastitis poses a pertinent problem in breastfeeding as it causes dysfunctional lactation.
2. Mastitis is therefore also as precarious for the new born baby who is left without its primary diet.
3. Doctors often recommend such mothers to continue breast feeding in spite of the disease, after prescribing some antibiotics which usually work in suppressing the infection after a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks.
4. The affected mothers usually feel too tired to take care of their child while suffering from this kind of infection.

Preventive measures
1. Avoid wearing tight clothes or undergarments.
2. Regularize breastfeeding schedules; do not stop before 6 months.
3. Encourage your baby to feed especially when you experience of build-up of milk.

Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

How scared are you of root canals? what if we tell you. You no longer need to be?
Root canals are easily one of the most dreaded treatments in the world. I have seen patients compare the anxiety they feel before a root canal to things like open heart surgery and labour. The last thing you want to hear on a dental chair is the diagnosis that you need a root canal. The horror stories surrounding this dental treatment range from gruesome to excruciating.

This article is an attempt to dispel the mystery and pain associated with root canals and show you how far we have come from the horrors to the sophistication of the latest technology.

From painful to pleasing

What are root canals really?
In its simplest sense a root canal is a deep filling done by cleaning the infection from the third and innermost layer of the tooth which is made up of nerves and blood vessels.

Our tooth is made up of 3 layers the first 2 are hard and confined layers called enamel and dentin when decay affects these it is very slow to spread and easy to remove and fill within one short session.

The third layer may take 1-3 sessions to clean as the infection may have spread or collected in the supporting tooth structures.

Why are root canals considered painful?

The 3rd layer of our tooth is a nerve chamber containing soft nerves and blood vessels in communication with the rest of our body.

This is the place that communicates pain to our brain and this is why when decay or bacteria hit this soft deeper layer we experience sharp shooting pain.

Top 3 reasons why root canals used to be painful


    Improper or inadequate anesthesia to numb the inflamed nerve
    Mechanical instrumentation to manually pull out the nerve which we now dissolve and clean with automated machines
    Lack of the right medications to use within the tooth.


What happens to root canal infections if left untreated?
If this pain is suppressed with medication and not treated it can lead to an infection spreading within the bone which may later lead to a swelling with pus etc.

If this infection is left within it can eat into the supporting bone and eventually infect or affect the adjacent teeth as well.

I always suggest to give exclusive breast milk up to 6 months of age. Breast suckling is it self a good means to increase milk production in addition to good nourishing diet to mother.

My Kids Don't Like Milk.- common dialogue by the mothers
Drinking milk isn?t the only way to enjoy its benefits. For example, try making soup and oatmeal or other hot cereals with milk instead of water. Pour milk over cold cereal for breakfast or a snack. Incorporate milk into a fruit smoothie or milkshake. Chocolate milk and cocoa made with milk are also ways to increase the milk in your child?s diet.
Sources of calcium also might include an ounce or two of cheese a cup of calcium-enriched orange juice, or a small carton of yogurt. Your kids can also get calcium from dark green, leafy vegetables like kale or foods such as broccoli, almonds, tortillas, or tofu made with calcium.

You don't feel any change because heaviness of breast is very gradual process. Milk will surely come if you desire it. So no anxiety apply to breast as possible after delivery. Thanks.

Tk care your feedback is solicited.
