Menopause-how to take care

Menopause-how to take care

I would like to address one of your possible issues Called pms. At the monthly attack of the mother nature, women undergo a terrible combination of physical, psychological and emotional disturbances with varying severity. Though it is nothing to worry about, it highly upsets the environment for a few days.

1. Intense irritability and mood swings
2. Sadness and crying bouts
3. Poor concentration
4. Sleep disorders
5. Physiological changes including breast tenderness, headaches, digestive problems, bloating and weakness.
6. Stress, anxiety and low self esteem

These are some changes that you experience during those days. Have
You wondered about their causes?

# hormonal changes
# changes in the brain chemicals
# stress
# poor nutrition and dietary habits
# alcohol or caffeine consumption
# a family history of depression

The home remedies I am going to mention are suggested by different women who had experience fighting their pms symptoms.

1. Exercise. There is no question of what exercise and for how long. You can do any moderate exercise that you are comfortable with for at least 30 minutes. Some women also enjoy rigorous physical activity for 15 minutes. Cuddling up in bed is not recommended unless advised by the doctor.

2. A healthy diet with whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Low vitamins and nutrients can aggravate pms.

3. Sugary foods, excess salt, refined foods and caffeine should be controlled.

4. Some women find relief by eating foods rich in magnesium, Vitamin b6 and vitamin E.

5. If you have digestive problems, don't go hungry. Eat small, Frequent meals.

6. See if milk can make you feel better.

7. Omega 3 acids may improve your irritability and mood swings.

8. Try pineapples. Who knows, manganese in pineapples, brown rice Or raspberries may work better.

9. Sleep well for at least 8 hours at night.

10. Cultivate a habit of going out with family, friends or engage in creative habits, go to a spa, do yoga or just about anything
That would take the stress out. Ask privately if you need further information.

I will be doing follicular study to help me know the exact time I ovulate from day 9th of my cycle. My question is it best to have relation on the day of rupture or one day prior to it to increase the highest chance of pregnancy. My gums suggested to have relation only on day of rupture thats really bothering me. Because having relation every alternate days I have heard lowers the sperm count which are already exhausted ny the time of ovulation. please help. Thanks in advance.

My question is it...
First thing lybrate-user relationship should be there from 2-3 days prior to ovulation and 2-3 days after it. Maximum times on the day of ovulation increase the chance. Second thing alternate day or daily intercourse or many times on the day of ovulation supplies the good sperm count, there is no question of decrese quality. Try this way for Atleast 3cycles.

Excessive production of prostaglandins is one of the major causes for most signs and symptoms of dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea is almost wholly due to this and may be due to a tight cervix, the mouth of the uterus. Such cases improve totally after a normal child birth due to stretching of the uterine musculature. Secondary dysmenorrhea, however, needs proper investigating into in order to know the causative pathology. The underlying pathology needs to be treated to control painful menses. Pain-killers can only offer temporary relief. The common causes of secondary dysmenorrhea are pelvic infections, congestive or inflammatory conditions within the pelvis like endometriosis, uterine tumors such as polyps or fibroids, and the presence of a foreign body such as an intrauterine contraceptive device [IUCD]. Homeopathy has a promising role to play in cases of dysmenorrhea. The medicines are known to reduce the severity of the pain as well as to treat the cause, whenever possible. Every patient with dysmenorrhea may present with a different set of individual symptoms, which are carefully noted while deciding the homeopathic line of treatment. Homeopathic treatment is strongly suggested. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

The reasons for your amenorrhea is pcos. Since your lh and FSH ratio is high, you are not ovulating and hence the amenorrhea.

Cholesterol - Understanding Its Function In The Body!

Cholesterol - Understanding Its Function In The Body!

Cholesterol is a fatty substance made by the liver and distributed throughout the body. It plays an essential role and is an important ingredient in the various hormones. Most of the cholesterol is made by the liver, and only about 25% is received from the foods that are consumed.

Types:

Based on the density of the cholesterol molecules,

  • High density lipoprotein (HDL) which is the good cholesterol
  • Low density lipoprotein (LDL) which is the one to be worried about
  • Very low density lipoproteins (VLD) which is very bad for health

How it evolves:

Almost all the body systems are affected when there are increased amounts of cholesterol in circulation. The evolution is outlined below.

  • Cholesterol circulates in the body normally, and because of its density, it moves sluggishly compared to the other components in the blood.
  • Gradually, they settle down along the walls of the blood vessels. This is known as atherosclerosis or plaque formation.
  • Over a period of time, this settled plaque accumulates more cholesterol molecules from circulation and continues to grow in size and volume.
  • With time, minerals are also attracted and therefore there is hardening of this mass. What also happens is these are along the blood vessels and therefore it becomes narrow, limiting the blood supply.
  • When the target organs are vital ones like the brain, kidney, heart, etc., their functioning is affected.
  • There could be reduced blood flow to the brain leading to stroke. There could be paralysis on one or both sides depending on which side and part of the brain is affected
  • Reduced blood flow to the heart can cause heart attack. They present with severe chest and jaw pain, profuse sweating, and nausea. If left untreated, this can lead to death.

Causes of increased cholesterol: High cholesterol levels can be detected by simple blood tests, which can also identify the type of cholesterol that is increased.

  • Modified dietary patterns with increased amounts of saturated fat and sugars
  • With obesity on the rise, more and more sugar is converted into fat, thereby increasing the cholesterol levels
  • A sedentary lifestyle which has a combination of increased sugar and trans fat consumption with reduced physical activity leads to accumulation of cholesterol
  • Stress increases cholesterol as it induces poor eating habits
  • Genetic predisposition is another reason for a person to develop high levels of cholesterol. Like obesity, high cholesterol also runs in families.

Treatment: Reducing weight, dietary monitoring, and medications is the way to go. This requires extreme commitment and determination from the individual, as it is not just about reducing it once but to maintain that optimal level going forward.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
