Effects Of Skipping Breakfast!

Effects Of Skipping Breakfast!

Many of us tend to hurriedly rush to our workplace without having our important meal of the day. Yes, you got it right, the king of meals breakfast.

The meaning of breakfast is to end the overnight fasting. The body tries to repair and regenerate our cells and tissues when we are asleep.
After the process, the body tends to accumulate various by products that essentially​ needs to be thrown off the body. When you skip or delay your break fast, the toxins tends to build up in the body. Secondly, when there is no food source to provide energy, body tends to use the stored nutrients in the body very slowly and the body function slows down. 

Later, when you have your brunch with loads of foods at a time, the body tends to accumulate it hoping to use it in times of crisis. This habit when followed over a long period of time tends to slow down the body's ability to maintain blood sugars as well as healthy weight.

So, dear all my friends do have a healthy, nutritious breakfast everyday to maintain your sugars as well as weight.
Just don't read but make it a everyday practice from today.

4 Ayurvedic Ways To Treat Autoimmune Disorders!

4 Ayurvedic Ways To Treat Autoimmune Disorders!

When the immune system of the body reacts against the tissues of its own body, it is called an autoimmune disorder. To put it more dramatically, the body becomes its own enemy. The immune system of your body keeps fighting disease causing germs and bacteria, but in rare cases, the immune system might malfunction and fight its own body causing different disorders. These disorders may be caused due to genetic issues or due to mutations. According to ayurveda, autoimmune disorders are a result of constant unhealthy lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda works at the root cause of the disease where it starts treating the malfunctioning immune system.

Here is how ayurveda treats autoimmune disorders:

  1. Toxin removal: Ayurveda starts working on removing the toxins from the body. According to ayurveda, toxins or ama in the body interfere with the proper functioning of the immune system, which often leads to autoimmune diseases. Usually shunthi, haritaki, pippali, maricha, hingu and saindhav lavan are used to detoxify the body.
  2. Metabolism correction: Not only will ayurveda detoxify the body, but it will also correct the metabolism which gets messed up when afflicted with an autoimmune disorder. Neem, guggulu, guduchi, vasa, patola patra and ghrita are used to correct the metabolism.
  3. Increase in ojus production: Ojus is the component which helps in the nourishment of the immune system. It is generally received from the food you eat. Due to dysfunctional immune system causing the impairment of metabolism, production of ojas decreases to almost nil. Hence ayurveda increases its production. Guduchi, haridra, manjishtha, amalaki, nirgundi, yashtimadhu and pippali are used to increase ojha production.
  4. Immune system correction: Lastly, ayurveda works at correcting the immune system. If the immune system is not corrected, then the above treatment procedure will just be useless. Ghrita, haritaki, bahera, amalaki, ela and dadim are used generally to calm the immune system and rejuvenate it. They help correct the immune system for normal functioning.

Autoimmune disorders may not be easily treated, but that doesn't mean you cannot expect it to cure or witness a miracle. You just need some faith and confidence alongside proper treatment and you are ready to roll. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Vaginal Discharge: What’s Abnormal?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS

Vaginal Discharge: What’s Abnormal?
Vaginal Discharge: What’s Abnormal?
Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, as can odor and hue (its color can range from clear to a milky white-ish), depending on the time in your menstrual cycle. For example, there will be more discharge if you are ovulating, breastfeeding, or are sexually aroused. The smell may be different if you are pregnant or you haven't been diligent about your personal hygiene.
None of those changes is cause for alarm.
Any sudden change to your discharge may indicate a vaginal infection. You should be aware of how your discharge naturally varies throughout your cycle and what isn't normal, but obvious warning signs of infection are:

• a change in colour or consistency
• a sudden bad smell
• an unusually large amount of discharge
• another symptom alongside the discharge, such as itching outside your vagina or pain in your pelvis or tummy
• unexpected bleeding from the vagina

What causes abnormal discharge?
Any change in the vagina's balance of normal bacteria can affect the smell, color, or discharge texture. These are a few of the things that can upset that balance:
Infectious causes
• Bacterial vaginosis, a bacterial infection more common in pregnant women or women who have multiple sexual partners
• Chlamydia or gonorrhea (STDs), sexually transmitted infections
• Pelvic infection after surgery
• Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
• Trichomoniasis, a parasitic infection typically contracted and caused by having unprotected sex
• Vaginitis, irritation in or around the vagina
• Yeast infections
Other causes
• Antibiotic or steroid use
• Birth control pills
• Diabetes
• Douches, scented soaps or lotions, bubble bath
• Vaginal atrophy, the thinning and drying out of the vaginal walls during menopause
• Cervical cancer

How you are treated will depend on what’s causing the problem
Here are some tips for preventing vaginal infections that can lead to abnormal discharge:
• Keep the vagina clean by washing regularly with a gentle, mild soap and warm water. One can use vaginal wash available in market.
• Never use scented soaps and feminine products or douche. Also avoid feminine sprays and bubble baths.
• Wear cotton underpants, and avoid overly tight clothing.
• After going to the bathroom, always wipe from front to back to prevent bacteria from getting into the vagina and causing an infection.
• Avoid vaginal douching unless recommended by doctor.

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.

Does vagina becomes tight when do not do sex for 1. Year but before this I do sex once in a month for 1 year.

MD Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
Yes. Vagina is an elastic tube. If you do not use it, it will become tight. But you need to understand that sometimes the painfull intercourse might be due to lack of lubrication, in which case using the right lubricant will ease the intercourse. You also need to relax as sometimes resumption of sex after a long gap can give rise to vaginismus, which is psychological in cause leading to a spasm of vaginal muscles.

Earache: Is It an Ear Infection?

MS - ENT, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Earache: Is It an Ear Infection?

Ear infection is a disorder which can either be viral or bacterial, affecting one’s middle ear the most. This disorder is painful as fluid accumulates in the ear leading to inflammation. Infections of the ear can either be chronic or acute in nature, the damage is more prominent in case of chronic infections. Acute ear infections can be painful but they usually fade away in a few days’ time.

Symptoms
In case of an ear infection, you will experience pain in the ear. A pressure may develop in the ear accompanied by drainage of pus from the ears. Some severe cases might also lead to loss of hearing, be it temporary or permanent. The symptoms of ear infection may develop and affect both the ears. Fever during ear infections is another common auxiliary condition.

Causes
Ear infections tend to occur when the Eustachian tubes in the ear get blocked as a result of fluid accumulation in the ear. The Eustachian tubes can get blocked due to the following reasons –

  1. Being affected by allergies
  2. Conditions such as cold can lead to ear infection
  3. Problems in the sinuses
  4. Excessive smoking
  5. Infected adenoid glands

In addition to the causes, there are certain risk factors which can make one prone to ear infections, some of them being:

  1. Narrow Eustachian tubes in children increase the risks of ear infections
  2. Changes in climate and altitude
  3. Second hand exposure to cigarette smoke

Treatment
For mild symptoms, simple home remedies will suffice. A warm compress on the affected area can reduce the pain. Taking pain relieving medications such as ibuprofen can also help in reducing pain. For moderate symptoms, antibiotics may be required to treat the bacterial infection.
If other treatments do not work, then surgery may be required. Usually tubes are inserted in the ear to drain the accumulated fluid. If it involves the adenoid glands, then surgical removal of the adenoid glands may be required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.

Hi Manas. Tetanus shot is given only in second trimester onwards. It is never recommended to be taken in 1st trimester, that too between 4-8 weeks as the organogenesis or baby's organs are forming at this time.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there is no chance of pregnancy. Take care.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
We are couple. We had sex every night. But not get pregnant from last six month. Any suggestion?
Its good that you are having sex daily. At sex, the man generally ejaculates at all times, and thus provide sperms for the pregnancy. But the same is not the case with ovum formation for pregnancy to occur sperm and ovum must meet. But the ovulation happens" independent" of sex and it can happen or may not happen in a monthly cycle. So even if you are having regular cycles and also regular sex, the ovum may not be produced, and this could be a cause due to which pregnancy has not happened till now. Usually most couples conceive in 1 year of unprotected sexual relations. Some get pregnant in few attempts but some may take time. So continue your efforts and if pregnant the lady partner's periods may be missed. This is a sign of pregnancy. If you wish to enhance your efforts at baby making, - have sex regularly. - stay healthy - eat nourishing food stuffs - exercise regularly - avoid tobacco and alcohol - after sex, the lady partner must lie in bed for a good 1-2 hours, preferably with a pillow below her buttocks to keep the semen in the vagina and allow the entry of sperms into the uterus. - avoid getting up from bed just after sex, as it will make the semen trail off from the vagina. - avoid contact of vagina with water, while cleaning up after sex, as water is spermicidal - if you are using any oils, or jelly for lubrication, these can kill the sperms too, so avoid using them.

Am married before 4 months. Trying to conceive. Am having pcos too. Difficult to conceive. Am overweight too. How to reduce my body weight? in ayurveda?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Only one equation I know to shed off your extra kilograms is exercise to burn calories and reduce intake of calorie i. E. Food. Pcos was non-existent during ayurveda time. You must see a gynaecologist to assess your status. Your treatment is reduction of weight, some medicine to regulate your cycle for few months, correction of androgenic problem if that is there in your body. Please don't waste time if you are kin to have a baby. Preethi now I see you have written your sex as male?

What is the perfect age for a girl to go for sex, also if sex is done during her periods what will happen, any risk of pregnancy.

Diploma in Gastroenterology, Diploma in Dermatology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
The time that a girl can have sex is often up to her. But legally in india. It should be after 18 years. However, at 18 your body hasn't fully developed yet. You're still going through puberty and even your brain is still developing. A lot of teenagers really want to have sex, but they're not fully aware of the risk factors. I don't just mean pregnancy and std prevention; I mean emotional preparation. Many regret having sex too early or with someone they don't fully care about. I know of one girl who went through severe depression after losing her virginity. I don't say this to scare you off from sex. Just be aware that sex results in various different physical and emotional consequences, both good and bad. And early sex, multiple sexual partners (polygamous) are the causes of cervical cancer according to study. And second question is. Sex during menstruation. Is not hygienic. And no risk of pregnancy. As during that period no ovulation occurs. Ovulatory period is 11th day to 18th day of menstrual cycle which is considered as danger period. As chances of pregnancy is more. Finally you can have sex. During periods. But not hygienic.
