What are the symptoms of dengue fever and is there any preemptive medicine for dengue fever.

What are the symptoms of dengue fever and is there any preemptive medicine for dengue fever.
Dengue Fever is Caused due to the bite of an infected female aedes aegypti mosquito, the disease can be fatal if Dengue Hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome developed Once bitten it takes about 3-10 days for the symptoms to appear. The most common symptoms are – 1.High fever 2.Severe Headache 3.Pain behind the eyes 4.Nausea and vomiting 5.Swollen lymph node 6.Muscle and Joint Pain 7.Exhaustion 8.Skin rash Following tips for Prevention of Dengue fever : 1. Turn over empty pails and buckets, so that they do not collect excess water. If the container that contains water cannot be emptied, remember to cover it well when not in use. 2: Remember to clean out empty flower pots and not to over water potted plants. It is advised to not have any stagnant water around as it acts as breeding ground for the mosquitoes. 3: Apply mosquito repellents on all exposed areas, during the day as well as at night on a regular basis to prevent dengue. 4: Make sure your window and door screens do not have any holes. If so, block those areas properly to eliminate mosquitoes. 5: If someone at home is ill with dengue, try to not let the mosquitoes bite them or others in the house. 6: sleep under a mosquito net (especially small children as they sleep during the day and hence, the chance of mosquito bite is high during this time). 7: If you use a cooler remember to empty out and clean the water tray regularly, even when not in use. 8: Always cover your dustbin when not in use. 9: A natural method to keep mosquitoes at bay is to plant Tulsi near your window. The plant has properties that do not allow mosquitoes to breed. 10: Using camphor as a repellent also works wonders. Light camphor in a room and close all the doors and windows. Leave it this way for about fifteen to twenty minutes to have a mosquito free environment

Mr Barun Kumar, Please tell me are you on any anti diabetic drugs, if yes what are those and their dosage? The ayurvedic product mentioned is supposed to be for helping liver activity. It has no relation to diabetes control or insulin activity. If you no liver related issues then you may stop that. But it is important to take proper medications for controlling blood sugar.

Manyatimes the semen has got some or the other kind of infection in it. Though, many doctors claim it to be a harmless practice (to engulf semen) but I personally get many patients with throat problems and who complain about this consistent hoarseness inside the throat afterwards. You can avoid doing it in future. Take a pinch of kalonji daily morning and evening post meals. It will take sometime to get relief. Be patient.

1. There is absolutely no harmful effect. There are only myths about it. One can do it whenever he/ she wants. 2. But remember, anything in excess is not useful. If you are addicted to it, it can divert your attention and may cause loss of concentration in studies, works and family life.

Patient who is smoking, consuming oily stuffs is more prone for acidity and gaseous dyspepsia (tobaco dyspepsia), such acidic refluxes and gas formation is more at bed time when patient is recumbent. For absurd dreams ,probably your father may have been suffering from mild insomnia, he lacks deep sleep (slumber phase) ,mostly restless sleep (REM or rapid eye movement phase) is accompanied with vivid dreams which may be pleasant or unpleasant. Sometimes shallow respiration (sleep apnoea) is also heralded with restless sleep and nightmares, this may have to do with various heart problems also. To have proper deep sleep, check with qualified doctor, avoid smoking, reduce intake of any stimulants .eat light specially dinner 2 hours before getting into bed. Certain informations such as addictions, concurrent illness, snoring, drug history, occupational involvement etc will guide your doctor to better solution. Good luck.

What are the precautions need be taken while suffering with disease like jaundice and what are the symptoms?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, jaundice, also known as icterus, is a yellowish pigmentation of the skin, the conjunctival membranes over the sclerae (whites of the eyes), and other mucous membranes caused by high blood bilirubin levels. This hyperbilirubinemia subsequently causes increased levels of bilirubin in the extracellular fluid. Jaundice is often seen in liver disease such as hepatitis or liver cancer. It may also indicate leptospirosis or obstruction of the biliary tract, for example by gallstones or pancreatic cancer, or less commonly be congenital in origin (e. G. Biliary atresia). Yellow discoloration of the skin, especially on the palms and the soles, but not of the sclera and mucous membranes diet during jaundice: -consume boiled water only. -most important is not to take oily and spicy food. -take rest as much as one can and drink water at least 3 liter a day. -eat abundance of green leafy vegetables and juice. -maintain hygiene. -avoid junk food, pickles, food from outside, sugary food, non-veg sp. Red meat, eggs, fried & oily food, rich food, milk & milk product, dry fruits, tea & coffee, smoke, alcohol, cold drinks, canned food, medication: take homoeopathic medicine - chelidonium q/3 times a day for 4 weeks. Revert. Home remedies for jaundice: drink more and more lime juice. This is one of the best home remedies for jaundice. Mash one ripe banana and eat it twice a day along with some honey. This is one of the best home remedies for jaundice. Drink a mixture of lemon juice and sugarcane juice. This is one of the best home remedies for jaundice. Increase the intake of minerals such as iron and calcium in your diet. This is one of the best home remedies for jaundice. Carrot juice is also beneficial for people suffering from jaundice. Beetroot juice when taken with squeezed lemon also helps to cure jaundice in a short period of time.

Vitamin K - Facts You Never Knew About It!

Diploma in Diet,Health & Nutritions
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Vitamin K - Facts You Never Knew About It!

Vitamins are essential micronutrients which the body requires, though in small amounts, for optimal health. These chemicals play a crucial role in keeping our body healthy and disease free.One such vitamin is vitamin K, which is essential for optimal blood clotting process, and also has multiple other benefits. More details about the functions, benefits and sources are listed below.

Functions/Benefits:

  1. Vitamin K is actually a group of vitamins and has K1, K2, and K3. The functions and benefits accordingly will depend on the actual chemical being referred to.
  2. These are fat soluble vitamins and therefore absorption is better when something fatty is eaten along with it
  3. Vitamin K1 or phyloquilline reaches the liver and is essential for blood clotting. Reduced levels of vitamin K can lead to uncontrolled bleeding, but this is very rare in adults. Newborns can have this problem, and therefore, it is common to give them a one shot of vitamin K injection.
  4. Vitamin K2 is produced by gut bacteria and reaches blood vessel walls and bones. It prevents hardening and calcification of arteries, which is the main cause of heart disease.
  5. It helps in improving calcium and other mineral concentration in the bones and makes the matrix strong. It can be used in osteoporosis to reverse and control bone loss. It can also be used to heal fractured bones.
  6. It slows the growth of cancer cells and can be used to stabilise cancer. It has been shown to improve multiple forms including hepatocellular, prostate, colon, and oral cancer.
  7. It is beneficial in controlling Alzheimer’s disease and improves memory loss in ageing people
  8. It improves insulin action and therefore prolongs onset of type 2 diabetes
  9. It has been shown to have antioxidant properties (as most other vitamins) and also helps in reducing toxin buildup
  10. It is good for skin health and can help control bruising and dermatitis

Sources:
Vitamin K is found naturally in many foods and the daily dose required for an adult is about 120 to 150 mcg/day. Therefore supplementation is usually not required.
Leafy green vegetables including spinach, okra, cabbage, beans broccoli, and asparagus

  1. Fermented foods like yoghurt
  2. Soybean in all forms including medium cooked as well and Japanese diet uses boiled, fermented soybean called natto, which contains tremendous amount of vitamin K
  3. Nuts, such as cashews, almonds, walnuts, are a good source
  4. Strawberries, grapes, prunes, and apples 
  5. Seafood such as salmon and shrimp contain good amount to control heart attack and stroke.
  6. Meat (duck, beef, chicken, and lamb)

Supplements are to be avoided, especially in pregnant and/or nursing mothers and people with a history of stroke, heart disease, heart attack and blood clotting problems.
