Know your mouthwashes.

Know your mouthwashes.
Know your mouthwashes.
Here are few myths and common queries that our patients ask us regarding mouthwashes:

1. All mouthwashes are equal:
Mouthwashes can be classified as cosmetic and therapeutic. Rinsing with cosmetic mouthwash will loosen bits of food from your teeth, lessen bacteria in mouth, temporarily reduce bad breath and leave a refreshing taste in your mouth. These products can't make a greater claim than that. Therapeutic mouthwashes contains active ingredients like chlorhexidine, fluorides, cetylperidinium etc, which have proven active against fighting plaque and bacteria (s) in mouth for longer duration.

2. Mouthwash is harmless:
Many mouthwashes contains high amount of alcohol which may cause dry mouth and ironically in turn causing bad breath. Alcohol free mouthwashes are also available. Active ingredients like chlorhexidine causes temproary altered taste in mouth and is not recommended to be used for longer duration.

3. Mouthwash cures bad breath:
Mouthwashes temporarily curtains bad breath. Causes of bad breath are variable and should be accessed before unjustified use of mouthwashes.

4. Mouthwash can replace brushing:
Mouthwash acts as an add-on, not replacement for brushing and flossing. Use of mouthwash in conjunction with brushing and flossing will improve overall personal oral hygiene.

5. A little swish will do:
Generally we swish mouthwash in a few seconds because of its bitter taste or lack of knowledge. Mouthwash should be diluted as per the instructions given by the manufacturer and should be swished vigorously for 30 seconds.

Personality Disorder

Dependent Personality Disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

  • being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can’t take care of themselves
  • investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people
  • displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior
  • avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support
  • experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment
  • finding it hard to be alone
  • putting the needs of others before their own
  • tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment
  • being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end – and forming new relationships as soon as possible
  • being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others
  • rarely taking the initiative
  • avoiding personal responsibility
  • avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning
  • being over-sensitivity to criticism
  • feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail
  • having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.
  • The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style – which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern – such as feeling overwhelmed – so that they can’t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn’t form a dependency – and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

Hypnotherapy In Fear and Phobias

Hypnotherapy In Fear and Phobias

Jumping at the sight of a cockroach is normal, but some people won't even step into the room if they see one. Such people are said to suffer from a phobia of cockroaches. A phobia can be defined as the irrational fear of an object or situation, though it may not pose any real danger. A phobia often develops during childhood and gets aggravated as the person gets older.

Hypnotherapy has proven to be an effective form of treatment for phobias and fear. Hypnosis identifies the root cause or event that is the underlying cause of the phobia. A Hypnotherapist then attempts to change the person's reaction to the phobia trigger.

Some common phobias Hypnotherapists deal with are:

  • Fear of heights
  • Claustrophobia
  • Fear of insects and small animals
  • Fear of flying
  • Fear of technology

To do this a Hypnotherapist must ensure that the mind of the person is in a calm and relax state. This is because the root cause of a phobia is often a repressed memory. Thus, it can be accessed only when a person is in a state of heightened relaxation or trance. In this state, the mind is very receptive to suggestions. Once the memory has been addressed, it can be brought back to the conscious awareness. Addressing this conscious memory allows the therapist to make the patient feel less threatened by this trigger. The patient can then begin to form new thoughts and responses to the object or situation. This process is also known as Hypnotic regression.

A person normally needs 3-4 sessions of Hypnotherapy to be rid of a phobia. However, the number of sessions required varies from person to person and it may take additional sessions to cure a chronic phobia.

No. of sessions required depends on a number of factors such as:

  • How long the person has had the said phobia
  • His personality
  • How severely his life is affected by the phobia
  • How determined he is to free himself of the phobia

When you decide to work with a Hypnotherapist to get rid of your phobias, it is essential that you make the right choice in terms of the Hypnotherapist. You should ensure that you are being treated by a licensed professional Hypnotherapist. Also, make sure that you can trust the person and are comfortable in his or her presence. Take your time finding someone who you can open yourself up to and get started on conquering your fears.

Dear Patient, The only time a woman can conceive is during the ‘fertile window’ of the menstrual cycle. This window will vary depending on the individual’s cycle, however timing intercourse in the 6 days leading up to and including ovulation is the window with highest chance of conception. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your partners menstrual cycle is 28 days, then the day of ovulation would be around day 14. In that day the most fertile day for intercourse would be 12, 13 and 14 th day. The better way to plan is to use a ovulation kit which is available OTC. She can start using it after 8th day of the menses and then check every morning for ovulation.

Hello- Its normal to to leak out semen after sex. Some flows out due to gravity, some stays in your vagina, and some migrates up into your uterus in an attempt to fertilize your eggs, if present. Don't worry, there's plenty for all and you still get pregnant. However you must perform a semen analysis for your husband, it might be possible that there is some thing wrong in your husband's sperm.

Menses can be missed by hormonal changes or stress also. To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Dear Lybrate user, discharge of milk with or without pregnancy is known as galactorrhoea, But galactorrhea simply describes a condition in which a woman's breast secretes milk or a milky nipple discharge even though she is not breastfeeding. Galactorrhea is not a disease and has many possible causes. These include: Pituitary gland lesion Certain medications, including some hormones and psychotropic drugs Some herbs, such as anise and fennel Hypothyroidism Illegal drugs, etc etc, whatever the reason may be, the treatment of this can be done though Homeopathic medicine which are carefully selected for you and your constitution, we need a proper case taking for the same so feel free to consult online or in person, so that we can help you more.

Dieting to lose weight during pregnancy is not recommended, because you may not receive enough nourishment for you and your baby, and it may increase your risk for premature delivery. Meal plan during pregnancy: carbohydrate inadequate carbohydrate intake can result in low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) for women taking insulin and in ketone production for women who have gestational diabetes. Excessive carbohydrate intake can result in elevated blood sugar levels. Make sure your meal plan contains: complex carbohydrate, especially foods high in fiber, such as oatmeal, brown rice, bran cereal, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, and beans. Fresh fruits. Milk. Fresh or frozen vegetables. Limit these carbohydrate foods in your diet: refined sugar and foods with a high content of refined sugars (sweets) refined starches, such as highly processed breakfast cereals, instant potatoes, instant rice, or instant noodles fruit juice protein if your kidney function is impaired, your protein allowance may be lowered. Fat monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fats, rather than saturated fats, should continue to be the primary source of fat in your diet. Fiber get enough fiber each day. Fiber can help stabilize your blood sugar levels and relieve constipation, which is common during pregnancy. Most people get far more sodium than they need. Talk to your doctor about how much sodium you should eat. Vitamins and minerals take a prenatal vitamin with folic acid and iron to meet your body's increased need for these micronutrients. Folic acid is needed for the production of blood cells. And iron is needed for red blood cells to deliver oxygen throughout the body. Folic acid has also been proved to reduce the risk of fetal neural tube defects. You may need to take a vitamin b12 supplement, which is important for the production of red blood cells, and a vitamin d supplement if you are a strict vegetarian (vegan). Vitamin b12 can only be obtained from animal sources in the diet. Other vitamins and minerals, such as the b vitamins and calcium, are important during pregnancy for producing energy and preserving your body's calcium stores. Very large doses (megadoses) of vitamins, especially vitamins a and d, are not recommended during pregnancy. Vitamins and minerals should only be taken under your doctor's supervision. Artificial sweeteners saccharin (sweet'n low, sugar twin), aspartame (equal, nutrasweet), acesulfame k (sunett), sucralose (splenda), and neotame are safe to eat when you are pregnant. Avoid using aspartame (equal or nutrasweet) if you have phenylketonuria (pku). Caffeine avoid caffeine. Alcohol do not drink alcohol. No amount of alcohol has been proved to be safe for a developing baby (fetus).

My wife is in her 6th month of pregnancy. She is suffering from thyroid from last 3 years. Her thyroid normally remains under control where prior to pregnancy she was taking'thyronorm 100' while it is increased to'thyronorm 137' since initial days of pregnancy. In 2nd month the plicenta (i don't know the actual term) moved to the lower side of the stomach but now everything is as normal as it can be. Still I request to know what all precautions we should take to have a healthy pregnancy and normal delivery. Regards.

Avoid intercourse as placenta is lowered down. Ask her to report any bleeding. Diet and adequate rest. Continue drugs. Ask to note kicking of the baby.
