I am Dr. Prabha Acharya from Global Homeopathy practicing since last 25 years majorly dealing with hormonal disturbances, today I should talk to you about the role of Homeopathy in PCOS that is a Polycystic ovarian syndrome.

A patient named Dipa came to me in a very very frustrated and disturbed state of mind and said “doctor I am gaining weight for no reason see my skin, I just don't want to look in the mirror” to which I said “Dipa this is not your story alone, many females are suffering from PCOS but you need not worry because Homeopathy has a complete cure to it.”

In today's fast paced life adds stress at different levels which are the major causes of PCOS. Be it broken relationship or anger or disappointment or career problems or financial responsibilities all at times add to anxiety, due to this there has been a rise in the number of cases of PCOS.In the past 5 years, hormonal imbalance is triggered by stress which causes irregular menses, acne, pigmentation around mouth and underarms, excess of facial hair growth and undue hair loss, even causing obesity and infertility at times. I know the above symptoms look scary but trust me there are a cure and a complete return journey.There are a number of such PCOS cases in girls and women who have not been able to conceive, I tell every mother who accompanies her daughter that don't worry you will surely get to be a good mum.

Health Tips To Avoid Falling Sick This Monsoons

After the scorching summer, rains,unarguably, is a pleasant experience. However, these pleasing moments might be spoiled by non desirable health problems like cough, cold, diarrhea, etc. Therefore,taking precautions during rainy season is important to stay healthy and happy throughout the monsoons.  

Tips to stay healthy this monsoon:

  • Take your umbrella/ rain coat while moving out of the house so that you may protect yourself from the sudden rain fall and avoid getting drenched.
  • In rainy season roads tend to be slippery. So make sure you wear weather appropriate shoes.
  • Never touch our face directly with your hand as the flu virus commonly enters our body through the eyes, nose and mouth. Always use a clean napkin/ towel to clean the face.
  • Drink plenty of water and stay well hydrated.  It is better to drink the boiled water as this will kill all germs and bacteria that have formed in water.
  • Eat a healthy diet containing lot of fresh fruits and seasonal vegetables so that your body has a good store of all protective nutrients like vitamin A, C, E,and B-complex and other antioxidants and minerals. Soaking the greens in salt water for about 5-7 minutes can help remove insects. And always wash vegetables before cooking & also wash fruits well with clean water before consuming it.
  • Drink a bowl of hot vegetable soup or a cup of freshly brewed green tea as the temperature will give warmth and the ingredients will boast your immunity.
  • Consume bitter vegetables like bitter gourd, and bitter herbs like neem, turmeric powder and methi seeds help in preventing skin infections during monsoons.
  • Drink lots of water as water helps in flushing out the toxins from our body. But make sure that the water is pure and clean to drink. Carry a water bottle when going out.
  • Add a dash of garlic to the soups, sir fries and curries you intake as it will help you to increase your immunity during monsoon.
  • Exercise daily. If it’s wet out, then exercise inside your house like spot jogging,yoga, etc. 
  • Sleep well. As lack of sleep will negatively affect your body’s abilities to fight the diseases that assault it.
  • Use mosquito nets and repellents.        
  • Dry your feet when they get wet. Avoid colds and coughs by keeping your body moderately hot and dry.
  • Don’t go in air conditioned rooms with wet hair, wet clothes.
  • Avoid eating street food to avoid airborne and waterborne diseases and bacteria. Prefer to eat fresh, home-cooked food.
  • Avoid walking in the rain that makes you prone to a host of viral diseases and fungal infections.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol as it will weaken your immunity.
  • Limit the salt intake in your diet and avoid all salty and processed food during monsoon as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
  • Remember to take bath every time you get wet in the rain or after coming back to home as taking a bath helps in normalizing our body temperature.
  • Wash your hands, feet and face every time you go outside and before consuming any food as it will minimize the chances of getting infected.
  • Keep antiseptic liquids handy and use for washing off mud or dirt that usually gets splashed around.
  • Keep a check to see there is no stagnant water in your house and surroundings especially water coolers and empty flower pots in the garden to avoid mosquito breeding.
  • If you are suffering from asthma or diabetes, avoid staying anywhere with wet walls. It promotes the growth of fungus and can be especially harmful.
  • Drink warm herbal teas, especially those with antibacterial properties such as holy basil leaves, ginger, etc.

Summer Hair Care

Summer, though really a great time to be outdoors, is also a time to be extra caring towards your hair. Like sun damages your skin, it also damages your hair as well. 

Excessive exposure to the sun can cause weak, dry, brittle hair and also more susceptible to split ends. Sweat and dust contributed by summers increase hair problems like dandruff, split ends, frizziness and increased hair fall, etc. 

Tips to keep your hair healthy and shiny in summers:

  • Drink plenty of water. Your hair and your skin will benefit immensely from the amount of water and extra fluids that you have. So opt for cooling liquids that will help you keep your hair healthy and hydrated.
  • Eat a healthy diet for good health of your hair. Include omega-3 (fish, walnut, flax seeds, olive oil etc),iron (e.g dark green vegetables like spinach), Vitamin C (e.g citrus fruits like kiwi, orange, alma etc), proteins (e.g lean chicken, fish,egg, curd,skimmed milk, sprouts etc), zinc (e.g nuts) , vitamin A (e.g carrots) in diet.
  • It is essential you cover your hair with a hat or a scarf during summers. This protects it from the harmful UV rays and it also helps in retaining moisture.
  • Tight hairstyles can be damaging because they tend to pull and tear hair, especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat. Hence put your hair up in loose, comfortable styles.
  • Use a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush.
  • Use a mild shampoo and always dilute the shampoo with an equal quantity of water and then apply to the slap.
  • Hair scalp sweats more during summer and it may lead to dandruff. This might make you feel like you have a dirty scalp, making you want to wash your hair every day. But washing hair daily will strip your hair of its natural oils. Therefore, wash your hair on every 2 days or alternate days and not on every day.
  • Splint ends forming is higher in summer hence trim your hair.
  • Oil your hair twice a week as it is a good way to get healthy and shiny hair.
  • Exercise daily. Yoga or simple exercise like walking will helps in maintaining good health and proper blood circulation which will result in better hair.
  • If you’re the type of person who loves swimming in summers then you should wet your hair before you enter the pool. This way it will absorb lesser chlorine.
  • Avoid excessive dry heat, such as that from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons.
  • Don’t dry your hair with blow dryer.      
  • Avoid any sort of hair treatments. Keep straightening, curling or any other treatments for later.
  • Avoid eating refined flours, fried, sugary, and processed and junk food.

Beat the Heat This Summer

Beat the Heat This Summer

Summer has finally arrived! During school, summer was probably the most-awaited season, since it coincided with the start of the long vacation. 

Though summer is the season of outdoor fun, barbecues, and sunshine, it can also be the season of sunburns and stifling heat. 

Tips for protecting yourself from the extreme summer heat:

  • Hydrate your body. During the hot summer months, heat and sweat can leave your body dehydrated. A lack of water is harmful to your body and can also make you crave food when you’re not actually hungry. It is incredibly important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Wear loose, full-sleeved cotton and light color clothes to protect the body from the sun and to aid evaporation of sweat.
  • Use a hat/ Cap to protect your head from the sun you go out.
  • Wear sunglasses. They prevent harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from scorching your corneas and protect your eyes for many more summers to come.
  • Apply sunscreen daily every 3 hourly. Nothing knocks good days off a summer calendar like nasty sunburn. Use enough sunscreen to cover all exposed areas.
  • Just like sunscreen protects the rest of your skin, a lip balm with SPF protection blocks out the sun and keeps in moisture for your lips.
  • During the heat try to rest often in shady areas.
  • Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Alter your pattern of outdoor exercise to take advantage of cooler times (early morning or late evening). If you can't change the time of your workout, scale it down by doing fewer minutes, walking instead or running, or decreasing your level of exertion.
  • Remember to rehydrate after daily exercise.
  • If you live in an area with dry weather, try putting a little moisture in the air by soaking a towel and hanging it in front of an open window. Open all the windows on the same floor to start a draft that will carry moisture in and cool you.
  • Drink lots of liquids like coconut water, lime water,buttermilk etc to replace the fluids you lose from sweating. Do not wait until you feel like you need a drink.
  • Wear loose-fitting cotton clothing,preferably of a light color.
  • You can cover your head with scarfs, stoles or dupattas. This is also a good option but make sure that the scarf or stole is of a light material like cotton. This will prevent the heat from directly reaching your head. It will also protect you from the hot loo.
  • Stay indoors in air conditioning as much as possible. If no air conditioning then Use a fan.
  • Take a cool shower or bath.
  • Keep tissues and wet wipes with you all the time so as to wipe out the sweat at regular intervals.
  • Instead of hot foods, try lighter summer fare including frequent small meals or snacks containing cold fruit or low fat dairy products like yogurts.
  • Include salads in your diet. Consuming leafy lettuce and summer greens, cucumbers, in salads are delicious ways to stay cool.
  • Include fruits & vegetables like watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew-melon as well as citrus fruits like oranges, cucumber, radishes, lettuce and leafy greens such as spinach and arugula, and fresh herbs such as mint, etc.
  • Avoid heavy, oily, and spicy foods as much as you can because these foods take a longer time to digest.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Avoid eating fried,processed, and sugary and junk food.
