PCOD stands for polycystic ovarian disease and it is a disorder associated with women of middle age or younger. There is a sense that the condition is being reported increasingly in the past few years. The appearance of multiple cysts on ovaries which leads to the menstrual cycle being disturbed, more or less describes this gynaecological disorder. The immediate fallout of PCOD is that it can result in infertility and that causes more anxiety among married women. Unfortunately, such anxiety can worsen their chances of conceiving. They must subject themselves to proper diagnosis and treatment.
Symptoms and Diagnosis
A typical PCOD patient may suffer from an enlarged ovary and therefore it produces excess of androgen and estrogenic hormones. Experienced gynaecologists usually understand the condition through interaction with the patient and after listening to the medical history, particularly relating to their menstrual cycle. The incidence of the condition in obese women is more frequent and the excess levels of androgen etc. as described above will also leave a few symptoms. Blood tests or pelvic exam is conducted by the doctor to confirm the phrase of PCOD.
Treatment for PCOD
Under Ayurveda, the PCOD condition is seen as an imbalance in the rasa and rakta dhatus. The multiple layers of cysts are also explained as the accumulation of impurities and toxins in the system. The predominant underlying cause and therefore the treatment under Ayurveda relates to the food consumed and lifestyle adopted by the affected women.
From the food intake perspective, the advice is to switch to low-fat milk and drink only boiled milk.The PCOD affected women should consume fruits, preferably the lighter varieties which can be easily digested and have less sugar content, such as apples, oranges, etc. Besides these a kind of vegan diet with an abundance of green vegetables and whole grains is also recommended.
Advised Lifestyle Changes
Ayurveda also combines instructions on certain simple changes being brought about in the normal lifestyle of PCOD patients, which can be applicable to others also. One is to avoid stress and reduce the levels of anxiety. While remaining active, excessive physical strain must be completely avoided. Women diagnosed with PCOD must strictly refrain from consuming alcohol and smoking and drug intake should also be fully avoided. These can have a direct impact on the menstrual cycle.
Whenever a women diagnosed with PCOD has been found to have excess body weight, the doctor may put them through a simultaneous weight loss programme, without harming the physical condition of the woman in any manner. Once the PCOD condition is treated and the ovary is restored to its original form, the woman can pursue a separate line of treatment for ovulation and pregnancy where such intentions exist.
Ayurvedic Panchkarma therapy including Abhyangam, Shiridhara and Basti Chikitsa is very effective. Ayurvedic medicine to restore hormonal imbalances is better substitute. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Green tea is not always good; it has some side effects also. You shouldn't take it if you have any symptom listed below.
* it causes dryness in body resulting dry skin and agitated mind (in overdose)
* it hampers spermatogenesis resulting low semen count (so patients already suffering from low count should avoid)
* study also reveals that it hampers absorption of iron in blood.
* patients suffering from irregular heartbeats should not consume it ever.
* patients suffering from low calcium level or conditions like osteoporosis must avoid it.
* one more thing I would like to bring in your notice regarding this is as demand of green tea is increasing day by day many companies are just giving you some other resembling leaves on the name of green tea that may harm more.
What is masturbation?Masturbation is the stimulation of the sexual organs usually by a person himself, to obtain an orgasm. Though masturbation can be done by partners on one another, the term is more commonly used when sexual satisfaction is provided by self. Most people use their hands to masturbate, but instruments like vibrators and dildoes may also be used. These imitate the movements of the hand and provide sexual pleasure.
Masturbation is a way of releasing pent up sexual energy. Most people start masturbating at the time of puberty. With changes in an individual's hormonal profile during puberty, there is a surge of sexual energy which can be released with the help of masturbation. Masturbation is reported more in males than in females. More than a physiological difference in libido, this may be due to sociological taboos on females. Females also tend to discontinue or reduce masturbation when they form sexual relationships.
Is masturbation harmful?
Is masturbation harmful?This is the biggest myth surrounding masturbation. If indulged in moderation, masturbation, on the contrary, is a healthy practice that releases sexual energy. According to certain religious practices and beliefs, masturbation is harmful since it results in the loss of a man's "seeds" and makes him weak. Masturbation in women has largely been ignored in the religious texts. Other myths surrounding the act are that it reduces virility by making the semen less thick thereby reducing the chances of a man to bear children. This is totally untrue. Masturbation does not cause any loss of strength or virility in a person.
What are the other myths surrounding masturbation?
What are the other myths surrounding masturbation?
Only males masturbate – this is not true. Females masturbate as much as males do. However, they tend to report it less than males due to the social stigma attached to it. Also it has been observed that females tend to reduce or discontinue masturbation once they get into meaningful sexual relationships.
Masturbation is unhealthy – masturbation per se does not cause any health hazards. It is not an unhealthy habit. However, it may be mentally unhealthy if it assumes obsessive proportions and the individual is unable to think of anything else. It may also have physical repercussions if the instrument used to masturbate is dirty or infected.
Only adolescents masturbate – though the practice usually begins during adolescence, almost all adults practise it at some time or the other.
Masturbation does not provide as much satisfaction as sexual intercourse – sometimes masturbation is more satisfying than the sex act. This is because, during masturbation, an individual is in control of his own movements and can maximize the pleasure according to his or her needs. During sexual intercourse, the degree of satisfaction may, to some extent, lie with the partner.
People masturbate only if they have unfulfilling sexual relationships – people also masturbate for self satisfaction, even when they have fully satisfying sexual relationships.
Can one stop masturbating?
Can one stop masturbating?One can stop masturbating if one wants to. Just as one can live without indulging in sex, one can also stop masturbating with some will power. However, since the activity has nothing to be ashamed of and most people do it, there is no scientific reason to discontinue it. If one still wishes to discontinue, then the sexual energy may need to be channelised into alternative physical activities.
