Seeds for health

Neha Bhatia tells us about healthy seeds. Seeds are tiny but power packed foods stuff. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Each seed has its own benefit. You can add them in food, salads, trail mixes, or just garnish desserts with it. You must have noticed, these days lot of processed foods have seeds added to them for example multigrain bread, chikki, chivdas etc to add on the nutritional and fiber value of these foods. Let’s talk about the health benefits of some seeds

1. Sunflower seeds:

It is rich in vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant. It prevents the heart and skin from damage by free radicals thereby preventing heart attacks and strokes
It is a great source of magnesium which reduces asthma and blood pressure and also acts as a muscle relaxant.

Filled with folate which is responsible for synthesis of DNA and RNA. If taken by pregnant women, it can prevent neural tube defects in the baby.
They have anti inflammatory properties and reduce the pain in arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Excellent source of selenium- a powerful antioxidant which prevents the risk ofcancers like breast, stomach, prostrate etc in humans.

2. Flaxseeds:

Very high in fiber which helps prevent constipation and acts as a natural laxative.
Rich in omega 3 fatty acids hence a valuable source for vegetarians. It helps to reduce blood pressure and many other inflammatory problems in the body.
Rich in lignans and omega 3 fatty acids which reduce cholesterol and prevent heart problems by unclogging arteries.
Due to its high fiber, it helps to control blood sugar levels and keep diabetes under check. 2 tbsp of flaxseeds/ day in powdered form is great and can be added to soups, salads, veggies, buttermilk, curd etc.
It had an ability to regulate estrogen in the body and hence prevents breast cancers in women and pre menstrual syndrome (PMS).
It may also prevent prostate cancer and prostate enlargement in men.
Additionally it helps in improving the quality of nails, skin and hair.

3. Pumpkin seeds:

It is rich in tryptophan which can reduce depression.
Rich in iron hence prevents anemia and improves energy
Due to its high content of magnesium, it improves concentration and brain function in children.
It improves prostate health in men.
Manganese in pumpkin seeds help antioxidants work better hence reduce chances of infectious diseases.

The recommended dose of viagra for you is 50 mg taken as needed about one hour before sexual activity. It may be taken between 30 minutes and four hours prior to sexual activity. Depending on effect and tolerability, the dose may be increased to a maximum dose of 100 mg daily or reduced to 25 mg daily. It should not be used more than once daily. Viagra is a good company medicine.

If in 2 consecutive ultrasound reports done 1 week apart, the baby is not growing and baby's heart beat has not been appreciated, then you will have to undergo abortion. The best is that you follow your doctor who knows your case very well.

During pregnancy ppbs and fasting is of no value. Glucose challenge test is done during pregnancy with 50 or 75 gms of glucose. This test is done to diagnose diabetes (gestational) in pregnancy. Better if you do gct done as the tests which you already did, has no meaning in pregnancy. If gct value comes above 140 then you have to do gtt i. E. Glucose tolerence test to start any kind of treatment.

Health benefits of Honey in dietetics and community nutrittion management

Health benefits of Honey
Nature's energy booster
The benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar. So, to experience these health benefits of honey, here are a few tips for you:
1. Next time before you go for a workout, take a spoon of honey to enable you to go for the extra mile.

2. If you are feeling low and lethargic in the morning, instead of reaching out for a can of carbonated energy drink, try honey. Spread it on hot toast or replace the sugar in your tea with it for a refreshing surge of energy.

Health benefits of honey image3. If your kids are finding hard to cope with the physical strain from the buzzing activities at school, prepare them a honey drink, some sandwiches with honey, butter and ham to make sure they have enough energy to sustain through the day. And for optimal sleep and recovery cycle at night, give your child a spoonful of honey before sleep on a daily basis.
Immunity system builder
Amongst the many health benefits of honey, what is most impressive to me is that honey can be a powerful immune system booster. It's antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve digestive system and help you stay healthy and fight disease. Start every brand new day with this cleansing tonic if you want to see this health benefit of honey: before breakfast, mix a spoonful of honey and lemon juice from half a lemon into a cup of warm water and drink it.
Honey is anti-cancer!
Can honey help fight cancer? what many people don't think enough of or have overlooked is - honey possesses carcinogen-preventing and anti-tumour properties! there are now more and more studies pointing to the potential role of honey in the prevention and the progression of tumor and cancer. More in: can honey fight cancer? and honey is anti-cancer

Folic acid If you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. The best time to get pregnant You?re most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it?s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there?s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it?s released. For treatment consult privately.

Tongue Ulcer Treatment in Hindi - जीभ के छाले का इलाज

जीभ पर होने वाले छाले को काफी हद तक माउथ अल्सर का ही एक रूप मान सकते हैं. इसमें भी उसी तरह के छाले होते हैं. वैसी ही जलन और परेशानियों का सामना करना पड़ता है. इसके लक्षण भी आसानी से नजर आ जाते हैं इसलिए उपचार में आसानी होती है. मसालेदार या तीखा भोजन करने पर मुंह में तेज जलन होने लगती है. इसके अलावा जीभ पर फोड़े हो जाते हैं. ऐसे में इसके उपचार में लापरवाही न बरतें. आइए इन छालों के प्रकार और उपचार के बारे में विस्तृत जानकारी प्राप्त करते हैं. जीभ पर होने वाले छाले के कुछ उपचार हम आपको बता देते हैं जिससे आप राहत महसूस करेंगे.

तीन प्रकार का होता है जीभ के छाले

1. गंभीर छाले
जैसा कि नाम से ही स्पष्ट है कि आमतौर से होने वाले छाले से आकार में बड़ा होता  है. आपको बता दें कि ये गंभीर छाले 10 में से 1 व्यक्ति को ही होता है. लेकिन जब आपको पता चले कि आपको गंभीर छाले है तो तुरंत किसी अच्छे डॉक्टर से संपर्क करना चाहिए.
2. सामान्य छाले
छाले से पीड़ित होने वाले ज्यादातर लोग सामान्य छाले से ही प्रभावित होते हैं. इसके नाम से भी स्पष्ट है कि ये आकर में ज्यादा बड़ा नहीं होता है और लगभग 10 दिन में ठीक भी हो जाता है.
3. हेरपेटीफॉर्म छाले
हेरपेटीफॉर्म छाले का दूसरा नाम पिनप्वाइंट छाले भी है. ये लगभग 3 मिमी आकार का होता है. आमतौर पर 10 से 40 वर्ष के आयुवर्ग के बीच होने वाले इस छाले से मात्र 10 प्रतिशत लोग ही प्रभावित हैं. ये बच्चों और बूढों में न के बराबर ही होता है.

ये हैं जीभ के छालों के मुख्य लक्षण
1. जीभ पर छाले होने से खाते और पीते समय बहुत ज्यादा दर्द होता है.
2. व्यवहार में चिडचिड़ापन आने लगता है. 
3. आपको हमेशा लगेगा कि आप थके हुए हैं. 
4. मुंह के घाव में लालपन नजर आने लगता है.

कैसे करें उपचार
1. जीभ के छाले से पीड़ित मरीजों को को खाने में विटामिन-सी का प्रयोग करना चाहिए. इसके लिए आप दो-तीन गिलास संतरे का जूस प्रतिदिन पिएं. आप टमाटर से भी विटामिन सी प्राप्त कर सकते हैं.
2. जितना हो सके ज्यादा मसालेदार और तले-भुने खाद्य पदार्थों से परहेज करें.
3. इसमें आपको ज्यादा से ज्यादा मात्रा में फलों का सेवन करना चाहिए और खूब पानी पीना चाहिए.
4. जितना हो सके हरी सब्जियों का भरपूर सेवन करने से लाभ मिलता है.
5. यदि आप खाना खाते समय खाने में कच्चे प्याज का इस्तेमाल करें तो और बेहतर होगा.
6. जीभ के छाले के पीड़ितों को दूध से बने खाद्य पदार्थों जैसे कि दही, बटर मिल्क और पनीर आदि इतेमाल में लाना चाहिए.
7. मांसाहारी भोजन अम्लीय स्वभाव का होता है इसलिए मुंह के छाले पीड़ितों को इसके इस्तेमाल से बचना चाहिए.
8. जीभ की सिकाई करने के लिए आपको दिन में दो से तीन बार तक गरारा करना चाहिए.
9. सबके घरों में आसानी से उपलब्ध तुलसी के कुछ पत्ते चबाने से भी राहत मिलती है.
11. ऐसे पदार्थ जिन्हें खाने से मुंह में जलन होने या दांतों में फंसने की संभावना हो, उसे खाने से बचना चाहिए. जैस आपको छाले के ठीक होने तक मदिरा तथा चॉकलेट से दूर रहना चाहिए.
12. छाले में जलन कम करने के लिए ग्लिसरीन में हल्दी का पाउडर मिलाकर उससे छाले वाली जगह पर धीरे-धीरे मालिश करें. इसके करीब 15-20  मिनट बाद इसे साफ कर लें.
13. एक उपाय ये भी है कि एक कप पानी में एक चम्मच धनिया पाउडर मिलाकर उबाले. इसके बाद जब पानी ठंडा हो जाए तो उससे दिन में दो से तीन बार गरारे करने से भी राहत मिलती है.
14. पानी की कुछ बूंदों में एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा के साथ मिलाएं और उसे छाले वाली जगह पर दो-तीन बार लगायें और 15 मिनट बाद उसे अच्छे से साफ कर लें.
15. खाना खाने के बाद हर्बल चाय पिने से भी जीभ के छाले में आराम मिलता है.

Brief description on infertility and its treatment

I am Dr. Radhika gynecologist and infertility specialist from Institute of Women's Health and Fertility. Infertility almost in about 10-15% of couples trying for pregnancy are facing problem with conception. This is almost a rising trend that nowadays almost 1 in 6-7 couples have problem in conception.

When we call it infertility? Infertility is nothing but when a couple is trying to conceive without any protection or without any means of protection for almost 1 year of unprotected intercourse we call it infertility. Let me just explain how an infertile couple is taken through an infertile clinic? During the first visit the couple is analysed and they are taken in detail history as what is the cause to infertility? What is the duration of infertility? What is the duration of married life? What is the age of the couple that is the age of the female partner and the male partner? Had there been any pregnancy in the past? Is there any miscarriage in the past? Once the examination and history is taken we go for work up of the patient. That is we see for the ovarian function to ensure that ovary is functioning well that is to ensure that ovulation is going fine. We also look for the tubal factors. Tubal factor analysis is done by a test called salpingogram or hysterosalpingogram. If there is a problem in hysterosalpingogram that is tubes are looking blocked then we analyze with the further test called further the surgical assessment; like laparoscopy.

Once the tubes are cleared we also analyze how the uterus is with the hysterosalpingogram? As I already told you male factor is analysed by Semen analysis after an abstinence of 2 to 5 days. Once all these are ruled out we get to analyze or we get to reach to a conclusion as what may be the probable cause of these infertile couple? There may be few factors like peritoneal factors like an endometriosis. We have the endometrium of the inner layer of the uterus growing elsewhere outside the uterus. That is the inner layer of the uterus or endometrium grow in the ovaries or may grow in the pouch of Douglas. That is behind the uterus or may grow near the tubes. These all cause an addition or attachment of the uterus to the tubes. And they impair the easy pick up of the ovum or the egg from the end of the tube to the ovum end that is the inner end of the tube. When there is no egg pick up there is no pregnancy. Some most of the time in which simple infertility treatments and simple infertility counselling how they have to go about natural conception and when they have to try when the egg is being released? With all these thing itself 70% of the couples would conceive. And only in about 10 to 15% will go to the next step like IUI or further steps like test tube baby procedures. IUI is intrauterine insemination where sperm sample is collected in the laboratory. It is washed off the impurities and the good motile sperms are injected into the uterus through a thin canella or a catheter. This sperms have to travel a very short distance from the uterine cavity into the tube when egg is already picked up and stay. So this distance to be travelled is very short thereby increasing the chance of pregnancy. IUI is of major benefit in minimal or mild male factor infertility.

Once we have seen the other factors are also ruled out and ensure that everything is fine then we counsel the couple for IVF or test tube baby procedure. IVF is in vitro fertilization. What we do in this one is give injections or give continuous injections to the lady which will cause superovulation. Once the eggs attain a mature size we collect all of them through a thin needle into the test tube washed off the impurities and then incubated. The same time the sperm is collected in the laboratory. The egg under sperm is inseminated together and embryos are grown in the laboratory. Once these embryos are grown they are pushed back or transferred back to the womb using a thin capita that is the embryo transfer catheter. After 48 to 72 hours usually or even after 5 days sometimes.

But, in few men or in few couples the problem is the severe male factor infertility. That is we find only few sperms or in the ejaculate we find only few sperms or sometimes not even a few sperms in the ejaculate. In that condition we can surgically aspirate the sperm from the testicular tissue and see if it is already there. Once we get a good sperm from the testicular tissue we inject that good sperm tissue in the cytoplasm of the egg so that we have maximum chance of fertilization. This particular process is called ICSI or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. So this increases the chance of fertilization and this further increases the chances of pregnancy also. That's it about infertility over you.

Thank you And if you have any issues regarding infertility or regarding counselling about how conception occurs are how to go about trial for pregnancy you can visit us.
