Hello, ideally you should have had menses by 7-10 th july and if you have not got them as yet then you must get a serum beta hcgtest to rule out pregnancy as urine pregnancy test can show false negative results before 8 days post missed periods.

Beat the Summer Heat - Easy Homeopathic Remedies for It!

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Beat the Summer Heat - Easy Homeopathic Remedies for It!

The heat in summers can be dangerous. The heated summers bring along the medical conditions that need attention while enjoying sun-filled fun. It’s time to stock your cabinet with your summer arsenal. This year consider doing it with homeopathic preparations. They are safe, non-toxic with relatively simple guidelines for first aid use and equally effective for children and elders alike. The underlying principle of homeopathy involves taking a substance that can cause symptoms similar to those that a person is experiencing in illness.

The homeopathic remedies work rapidly to relieve pain, speed healing, and prevent infection. In addition, homeopathic treatments are safe, gentle, non-toxic, pleasant tasting and without side effects. In hot weather our body’s store of vital fluids and salts decreases as we sweat, taking with them nutrients we need to function healthily. This can lead to common problems such as dehydration and exhaustion, or even heat stroke which can sometimes be fatal.

Some of the symptoms include:

  1. Excessive sweating
  2. Cold and clammy skin
  3. Quickened pulse and breathing
  4. Headache
  5. Dizziness
  6. Nausea
  7. Muscle cramps and stomach pain

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic and a safe way to help the body to replenish its store of the cell salts and nutrients it needs in warmer periods and help to relieve cramps, aches and fatigue. Some of the most common homeopathic medicines are:

  1. Calendula: This is an all-purpose medicine for many kinds of skin damage that many of us face during the summer season. When the skin gets damaged due to wounds, infection, prolonged sun exposure and even excessive pollution and dirt, one can try using calendula. 
  2. Arnica: All that running around on the beach can easily give you sore muscles, while the heat can sap up your energy and leave you fatigued. In such cases, Arnica is the perfect homeopathic answer to your maladies. This medicine can be used for topical application if bought in its cream or gel form. 
  3. Belladonna: Sun strokes, dehydration and over-exposure to the sun, in general, can give you a host of problems and conditions including heat headaches. In order to treat such conditions, one can use Belladonna, which is a homeopathic medicine used for sun-stroke related ailments and symptoms.
  4. Rhus Toxicodendron: This medicine is also known as Rhus Tox. It is made from poison ivy extracts and is an effective drug when it comes to dealing with itchy rashes. These rashes may be caused because of exposure to oak, sumac and even poison ivy.
  5. Ledum: Ledum or Ledum Palustre is one of the best homeopathic drugs when it comes to treating insect bites during summers.
  6. Euphrasia Officinalis: This medicine is most commonly used for eye related problems that may come about due to sun exposure or excessive sweating and other heat related factors. 

How to stay safe in sun

  • It is always advised to drink plenty of water or drinks during summers, to cool down your body and to remain hydrated. 
  • If you are suffering from tiredness, headaches or any other conditions which may be aggravated in the warmer months, consult a specialised homeopath who will look at your diet, mood, sleep and lifestyle prescribe a suitable homeopathic remedy for you to take.

Hello, take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly till the menses lasts. Visit a gynaecologist to get yourself examined to come to conclusion. And for rest of days, take five phos.

सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ
इस बात से हम सभी वाकिफ हैं कि सुबह एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में नींबू का रस और शहद मिलाकर पीना स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य के लिए अच्‍छा होता है। शहद को गर्म पानी के साथ लेने से वजन कम होता है। और इसके नियमित सेवन से सेहत से जुड़ी कई समस्याओं से हमेशा के लिए निजात मिल सकती है।


पाचन सुधारे
अच्छे पाचन के लिए सुबह गर्म पानी में शहद और नींबू मिलाकर पीना चाहिए। यह पेट को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह लीवर में रस के उत्‍पादन को बढ़ाता है जिससे पाचन में मदद मिलती है। नींबू में मौजूद एसिड आपके पाचन तंत्र में मदद करता है और अवांछित विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा शहद एक एंटीबैक्‍टीरियल के रूप में कार्य करता है और आपके शरीर में मौजूद किसी भी तरह के संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता है।


कब्‍ज दूर करें
यह मिश्रण कब्‍ज के लिए तत्‍काल उपाय है। यह आंत को प्रोत्‍साहित कर मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा यह आंत्र म्‍यूकस में बढ़ावा देता है, पेट को हाइड्रेट करता है और सूखे मल को पानी में भिगो देता है। इन सब की एक साथ मौजूदगी से मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है


लसीका प्रणाली की सफाई में मददगार
लसीका प्रणाली में पानी और आवश्यक तरल पदार्थ की कमी हो जाती है जिससे आपको सुस्त और थका हुआ महसूस होना, कब्ज, सोने में परेशानी, उच्च या निम्न रक्तचाप, तनाव और मानसिक स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य पर असर पड़ता है। सुबह-सुबह इस मिश्रण को पीने से लसीका प्रणाली को हाइड्रेट होने में मदद मिलती है जिससे न केवल सभी उपरोक्त लक्षणों बल्कि प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली में सुधार होता है


मौखिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार
एसिडिक प्रकृति का नींबू, शहद और गुनगुने पानी के साथ सांसों की बदबू को तुरंत दूर करने में मददगार होता है। नींबू अपनी लार ग्रंथियों को सक्रिय और आक्रामक बैक्टीरिया को मार कर मुंह शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है। सांस में बदबू का कारण जीभ पर सफेद परत का गठन (मुख्य रूप से खाद्य और बैक्टीरिया से मिलकर) भी है, यह रस इस परत को प्रभावी ढंग से हटाकर सांस की बदबू से प्राकृतिक रूप से छुटकारा दिलाता है

मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में कार्य
शहद में बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटी-बैक्‍टीरियल के गुण होते हैं। इसमें कई प्रकार के संक्रमण को दूर करने की क्षमता होती है। नींबू और पानी के साथ यह मिश्रित – एक उत्कृष्ट मूत्रल (आपके शरीर से पानी बाहर निकलवाने वाला एजेंट) के रूप में कार्य करता है। यह आपके मूत्र मार्ग को साफ करने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है। यूटीआई (यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फेक्शन) से पीड़‍ित महिलाओं के लिए यह रस एक वरदान की तरह है क्‍योंकि यह संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता हे।


एनर्जी लेवल बढ़ाये
शहद और गर्म पानी से शरीर में एनर्जी में भी वृद्धि होती है। शरीर में ज्यादा एनर्जी उत्पन्न होने से शरीर का मेटाबॉलिज्म और कार्यप्रणाली में भी वृद्धि होती है। शहद शरीर के अंगों को ठीक से काम करने के लिए प्रेरित करता है। सुबह में गर्म पानी नींबू के साथ लेने से आप दिन भर ऊर्जावान बने रह सकते हैं


वजन घटाने में मददगार
शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी लेने से भूख कम लगती है। शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी में बड़ी मात्रा में फाइबर मौजूद होता है, जो भूख की इच्छा और शूगर लेवल को कम करके पर्याप्त एनर्जी प्रदान करता है। इस‍ तरह से नियमित रूप से सुबह इसका सेवन करने से दिन भर में आपके द्वारा लिए गए भोजन की मात्रा कम हो जाएगी। अपने दिन की शुरुआत गुनगुने पानी के साथ शहद और नींबू के साथ करने से आपका वजन काफी हद तक कम हो जाएगा।


त्‍वचा के लिए लाभकारी
त्‍वचा के लिए नींबू के लाभ अनगिनत है लेकिन इसके अलावा इसमें मौजूद क्‍लीजिंग तत्‍व रक्त को शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है, नई रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन में मदद करता है। पानी और शहद का मिश्रण आपकी त्वचा के लिए एक अनूठा दृढ, जीवाणुरोधी और कोलेजन बढ़ाने वाले गुण होते है। इसलिए अगर आप स्वाभाविक रूप से चमकदार त्वचा चाहती हैं तो यह पेय आपके लिए बहुत लाभकारी साबित होगा


पोषक तत्वों और विटामिन से भरपूर
शहद और नींबू के गर्म पानी में कई जरूरी एंटी-आक्सीडेंट, विटामिन और पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं, इसके अलावा इसमें एंटी इफ्लेमेंटरी गुण भी मौजूद होते है। इसलिए इसके सेवन से शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली मजबूत होती है। साथ ही यह वजन कम करने में सहायक होती हैं


रोग प्रतिरोधी क्षमता में मजबूती
शहद का सेवन शरीर के लिए काफी फायदेमंद है इसीलिए डॉक्टर हमेशा इसके सेवन की सलाह देते हैं। शहद के साथ नींबू और गुनगुने पानी के नियमित सेवन शरीर की प्रतिरोधी क्षमता बढ़ती है। शहद और नींबू में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स और कई पोषक तत्व शरीर को मौसम बदलने के साथ होने वाले संक्रमणों से दूर रखने में मदद रखता हैं

If you r suffering from pcod with excessive hair then only you need to be on diane-35. If you r using these medicines to get regular menses, then it is of no use as it will be same story after completion of the course. If you r taking it for the purpose of only birth control or contraception then definitely you need to switch to yasmin.

Hi, I am 28 years old. When pressed over my breast it pains but after the periods is over the tenderness is less. But now I found my left nipple inverted a little but when touched it gets averted. Do I need to worry and visit a gynae?

MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Ludhiana
Cyclic pain in breast is symptom of fibroadenosis (benign breast disease, normally this does not needs treatment but if it interferes with your daily routine or sever pain patient may need treatment. Avoid salt, fried food and caffeine during pre-menstrual period. Nipple retraction which averts on touching, it is not worrisome. I suggest you to go for ultrasound of both breasts. Breast examination is the domain of surgeon, not a gynecologist.
