Alcohol - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

Alcohol - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

Alcohol can it affect your intimacy level with your partner, yes! But with this you might be wondering how can that be possible when you actually sustain yourself for long, maybe longer than you should be. It is probably the “whiskey penis”. Alcohol may give you a sense of elation at one point of time, but it is essentially a nervous depressant. The over consumption of alcohol mainly has a reduced effect on sensitivity for both men and women.

How alcohol affects sex life in men: The effect of alcohol on the sex life of men is immense. In most cases, chronic and acute cases of alcohol consumption have shown to reduce the production of testosterone in men. Since testosterone is the hormone that results in the increase in libido in men, the effects of alcohol really reduce the performance in men. It has shown to reduce pleasurability and it can also reduce the intensity of orgasms. Sometimes, it can cause difficulty in ejaculation or delayed ejaculation.

How alcohol affects sex life in women: Alcohol can have a very mixed effect on women in general. While it can increase sexual arousal and desire, it can also result in low sensitivity. Women have a higher percentage of fat as compared to water in their bodies, this means that alcohol has a more profound effect on their bodies as compared to that in men. Their bodies also take longer to process and eliminate the alcohol. While some women report a heightened sense of sexual arousal and an increase in the duration of the orgasm, a large number of women also complain of lesser lubrication.

Alcohol also has a psychological effect; that is the loss of inhibition that may help in developing carnal instincts when intoxicated. This psychological effect may have a more profound effect than the physiological effects as a result of which women might claim that alcohol does indeed help in better sex. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Radish Leaves (Mooli Ke Patte) Benefits in Hindi - मूली के पत्ते के फायदे

वैज्ञानिक नाम रफानस सैटाईवस वाली मुली, स्वाद में तीखी या मीठी और कई रसों से युक्त होती है. इसे कच्चा या पकाकर खाया जा सकता है. कच्चा खाने के लिए इसे सलाद के रूप में इस्तेमाल करते हैं. वहीँ पका कर खाने के लिए इसका सब्जी या पराठा बना लेते हैं. मुली को अचार के रूप में भी खाते हैं. मुली विभिन्न आकार और रंग (सफ़ेद, लाल, बैंगनी या काला) की होती है. मुली में पत्तियां, फुल और बीज होते हैं. तो आइए नजर डालते हैं मुली के पत्तों के फायदों पर.

1. ह्रदय रोगों में
इसमें मौजूद एन्थेसाइनिन नामक तत्व दिल के मरीजों के लिए भी फायदेमंद होता है. ऐसा कई शोधों के परिणामों में देखा गया है कि एन्थेसाइनिन नामक तत्व ह्रदय संबंधी तमाम विकारों में सकारात्मक भूमिका निभाता है. आपको बता दें कि एन्थेसाइनिन में कैंसर रोधी गुण भी देखा गया है. हलांकि अभी इस दिशा में काफी शोध किए जाने बाकी हैं. ये जरुर है कि एन्थेसाइनिन ने तमाम शोधकर्ताओं को अपनी तरफ आकर्षित किया है.
2. पेट के लिए
मुली के हरे-हरे पत्तों में विटामिन ए, बी और सी के साथ ही क्लोरिन, फास्फोरस, सोडियम, आयरन, मैग्नीशियम और भी बहुत सारे पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं. अपने इन तत्वों के कारण मुली के पत्ते पेट के तमाम विकारों में फायदेमंद साबित होते हैं. कब्ज आदि पेट की तमाम बीमारियाँ इसे खाने से दूर होती हैं. पेट के साफ़ रहने से आप अनावश्यक बीमारियों से भी बच जाते हैं. यहाँ ये भी बताना ठीक रहेगा कि मुली पित्त को प्रोत्साहित करती है. 
3. ताजगी के लिए खाएं मुली के पत्ते
इसके पत्तों को आप सब्जी या पराठा के रूप में इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. आप चाहें तो इसे कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं. इसे खाने से शरीर के प्रतिरोधक क्षमता में वृद्धि होती है. जिससे की आप बिमारियों से बेहतर तरीके से लड़ सकते हैं. इसके साथ ही ये आपको थकान महसूस नहीं होने देता है और आप तरोताजा रहते हैं. इससे आप हाइड्रेटेड भी रहते हैं.
4. बवासीर में
मुली और इसके पत्तों के तमाम फायदों में से एक ये भी है कि इससे बवासीर की समस्या भी काफी हद तक कम हो सकती है. इसके लिए आपको रोजाना इसकी सब्जी या कच्चा खाना होता है. आप चाहें तो मुली के ताजा पत्तों को पीसकर गुदाद्वार पर लगा सकते हैं. इससे भी बवासीर में राहत मिलती है.
5. निम्न रक्तचाप के मरीजों के लिए
मुली के पत्तों में सोडियम की प्रचुरता होती है. जिससे कि इसे खाने पर हमारे शरीर में नमक की कमी नहीं होती है. निम्न रक्तचाप के मरीजों के लिए ये बेहद फायदेमंद साबित होता है. इसके लिए आप मुली के पत्तों को खाएं. हलांकि इसके लिए किसी विशेषज्ञ की सलाह अवश्य लें. क्योंकि ऐसे बीमारियों में थोड़ी सी भी  चुकी काफी घातक हो सकती है.
6. पीलिया रोग में
मुली के पत्ते फाइबर से भी भरपूर होते हैं. फाइबर हमारे शरीर के लिए बेहद महत्वपूर्ण तत्व है. मुली के पत्तों के रस को पानी और मिश्री के साथ मिलाकर पिने से पीलिया रोग में राहत मिलती है. इसका एक अतिरिक्त फायदा भी है, इससे बालों का झड़ना कम होता है. मुली के पत्त्तों से बालों को मजबूती भी मिलती है.
7. अन्य फायदे
मुली के पत्तों के तमाम अतिरिक्त फायदे भी बताए जाते हैं. जैसे कि इसे आँखों के लिए भी बढ़िया माना जाता है. मुली के पत्ते खाने से पेशाब भी साफ़ आता है. मुली के पत्तों का साग बनाकर, अचार के रूप में, सब्जी के रूप में या पराठा बनाकर खा सकते हैं. इसे कच्चा भी खाने में कोई नुकसान नहीं है. तो क्या सोच रहे हैं जाइए और बाजार से मुली लाकर खाइए और स्वस्थ रहिए.

Hello- Absence of uterus can prevent pregnancy but it can not prevent STD. You are at great risk of getting STD, as your partner has multiple sex partners. Use a proper protection, or it can affect your life very badly.

Hello lybrate-user eif means echogenic intracardiac focus it is a small bright spot seen in baby's heart on usg. It represents deposition of calcium in cardiac muscles. It is found 3-4%normal pregnancies. It has no impact on heart functions. Often resolves by 3rd trimester. Sometimes there is an association between eif and chromosomal abnormality as downs syndrome. If baby has normal chromosome there would be no associated problem to be concerned so sometimes doctor may suggest you for an amniocentesis that is done at15-20 weeks of pregnancy. If an isolated eif, chances are strongly in favour of normal pregnancy outcome. So don't worry be positive. Best of luck.

Hi, Fever may be simple/ self-limiting viral infection, or it may a symptom some serious illness like typhoid/ malaria/ Dengue/ TB or many more like that. It is decided by symptoms provided by you, and a battery of investigations. Therefore, follow the advice and consult doctor with detail symptoms. 1. Wear light and cotton cloths, it helps in cooling of body. 2. Take Tablet Paracetamol 500 mg (as and when required; after food) for fever (more than 99 F) for 3 days. Maximum 3 tablets with gap of 8 hours can be taken in a day. 3. If fever persists, do cold sponging (with cold water even ice water if needed) to lower down temperature. 4. Drink plenty of fluids. 5. Take adequate rest and proper sleep. Going to work, working out may just make you feel worse as the extra action adds stress to your body. Inadequate sleep decreases immunity of body, which causes worsening of illness. 6. Take proper diet preferably homemade like dalia, khichdi, rice, dahl, chapatti, vegetable soups or steamed veggies. 7. If fever is more than 5-7 days, Get done investigations CBC (Hb, TLC, DLC, Platelets, ESR only), Widal for typhoid/ RDT or PBF for Malaria/ and Sputum AFB if you have cough or chest pain from nearby Laboratory. Consult again if symptoms persist or worsen. ***Get Well Soon*** “Cold sponging is the best treatment if fever is uncontrolled.”

Fight Obesity to Prevent Yourself Against Diabetes!

Cosmetic Physician, Mumbai
Fight Obesity to Prevent Yourself Against Diabetes!

Obesity is a disorder which is characterized by accumulation of fat in the body resulting in various health problems. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that occurs when the sugar in the blood does not get efficiently utilized by the body. This is due to the inability of the body to produce enough insulin to metabolize the sugar. 

Diabetes is classified into two types, Type 1 diabetes wherein the body is unable to produce enough insulin and Type 2 wherein the body develops a resistance to insulin. Diabetes is known to cause diseases such as blindness and kidney problems. The risks of suffering from a stroke and other cardiovascular problems go up significantly if you have been diagnosed with diabetes. 

Weight plays a big role in the development of Type 2 diabetes and so weight loss is recommended. Other factors such as stress, age, pregnancy and medications also contribute to this disorder. Usually, a majority of the people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are found to be overweight. Being obese makes it difficult for the body to utilize insulin effectively in order to metabolize blood sugar.

As obesity is closely linked with diabetes, it becomes essential to focus on weight loss as a preventive measure against diabetes. 

  1. Try to exercise on a regular basis. Add cardiovascular exercises to your regimen such as running and swimming as they are very effective in burning fat from your body thus reducing the weight/fat. 
  2. Lifting weights also promotes fat loss by boosting your Resting Metabolic Rate or Basal Metabolic Rate (the body’s rate of burning off calories while you are at rest). 
  3. Follow a well- balanced diet that focuses on low carbohydrate and high protein based meals. 

Apart from these lifestyle changes, focus can be brought on the following techniques also as effective means to shed off the excess fat:

  1. Ultrasonic liposuction: This technique involves using high energy sound waves to eliminate fat from your body. It is a non-invasive procedure that inflicts no trauma on the adjoining tissues in the body and thus providing better weight / inch loss.. 
  2. Mesotherapy: It is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting medications into fat tissues. These medications target the adipose cells in the body and destroy them. This is a permanent procedure that is very effective in removing stubborn fat from the body and helping further in weight loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic physician.
