All About Calcium Carbide

Under PFA Section 44AA, the use of calcium carbide for artificial ripening of mangoes, apple, plum, banana is prohibited and can attract both imprisonment and fine.
Calcium carbide powder is usually kept wrapped in paper between the fruits (unripe mangoes) in a basket or box.
Once the basket of mango is closed from the top, calcium carbide absorbs moisture and produces acetylene gas, which accelerates the ripening process of fruits.
The health hazards are related to the gastrointestinal tract, kidney, heart, liver and brain and in long run cancer.
Calcium carbide 1kg is available for Rs. 25/? and is sufficient to ripen 10 tons of fruit.
How do we know that the fruit has been artificially ripened with calcium carbide?
It will be less tasty.
The aroma will be different
It is uniform in color.
The color of the mango changes from green to dark yellow.
It will have a shorter shelf life.
It will be overtly soft.
There may be black patches on the mango skin.
There may be multi color patches on the skin of the mango (Red, yellow, green patches)
How should artificially ripened fruits be handled?
Never eat off?season fruits, especially before time
Rinse all fruits in running tap water for few minutes before use.

Better plan pregnancy in a better way rather than abortions. As it can lead to weaknesses. Think about it again. Less than 7 weeks, it can be terminated with medicines but you need medical supervision.

Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

 

Miscarriage refers to a pregnancy that has ended prematurely, within 20 weeks. Research shows that around 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies end in miscarriages. Chemical pregnancies cause 50-75% of all miscarriages. The condition happens when a pregnancy is lost not long after implantation, bringing about bleeding that happens around the time of her normal period. The woman may not understand that she has conceived when she encounters a chemical pregnancy.

The normal period where miscarriages are expected to occur is during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. While pregnancy can be an overwhelming and exciting experience, it is beneficial that the woman keeps herself informed about the possibilities of miscarriages.

Some types of miscarriage are:

  • Threatened Miscarriage
  • Inevitable or Incomplete Miscarriage
  • Complete Miscarriage
  • Missed Miscarriage
  • Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Blighted Ovum
  • Ectopic Pregnancy
  • Molar Pregnancy

Symptoms:
In case of any of the following signs, the doctor should be consulted immediately,

  • Mild to Severe Pain
  • White-Pink Mucus
  • Weight Loss
  • True Contractions
  • Sudden Decrease in Signs of pregnancy
  • Tissue made of clot-like material passing from the vagina
  • Bright red or Brown bleeding with or without cramps
  • Investigations

Ultrasound:

  • The majority of women will require a transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) and 98% of complete miscarriages can be diagnosed in this way.
  • If a transvaginal ultrasound scan is unacceptable to the woman, then a transabdominal ultrasound scan should be offered and the woman should be made aware of the limitations of this method of scanning.
  • If there is no visible heartbeat then a second scan should be performed. This is either done at a minimum of 7 or 14 days, depending up the measurements of the crown-rump length or the mean gestational sac.
  • Be aware that a woman with a pregnancy of unknown location may have an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Serum hCG
  • Serum hCG tests can help to exclude an ectopic pregnancy in women with a complete miscarriage (or pregnancy of unknown location), determined by ultrasound.
  • Serial tests are required but results should complement clinical assessment and not replace it. Two tests are taken as close as possible to 48 hours apart:
  • >63% increase suggests ongoing pregnancy.
  • >50% decrease suggests pregnancy is unlikely to continue.
  • A woman with results between these parameters should be reviewed in the EPAU withing 24 hours.
  • Slow doubling times are associated with miscarriage and declining values have high sensitivity of 93-97% in diagnosing a complete miscarriage[1].
  • Rare causes of a raised hCG should also be borne in mind, including gestational trophoblastic disease or cranial germ cell tumour, which must be considered.

Progesterone

One meta-analysis has shown that a single low progesterone measurement for women in early pregnancy, presenting with bleeding or pain and inconclusive ultrasound assessments, can rule out a viable pregnancy. However, a very low serum progesterone can be seen in normal viable pregnancies, so progesterone should not be used as the definitive diagnostic test without other evidence.

Management

  • Admission to hospital can be avoided in 40% of women with threatened or actual early pregnancy loss.
  • Following a miscarriage, all women should have access to support, follow-up and formal counselling when necessary.
  • Anti-D rhesus prophylaxis (250 IU) should be offered to all rhesus-negative women who have a surgical procedure to manage a miscarriage.
  • However, anti-D rhesus prophylaxis does not have to be given to those women who:
  • Receive solely medical management for an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
  • Have a threatened miscarriage.
  • Have a complete miscarriage.
  • Have a pregnancy of unknown location.
  • Women need evidence-based information to guide their decisions, as well as access to support and counselling; leaflets, web addresses and helpline numbers for support organisations should be offered to all women experiencing miscarriage.
  • There is no evidence to support a couple delaying attempts to conceive following a miscarriage.

Treatment:

The main purpose of treatment is to prevent haemorrhage and infection. It is common that the body expels all the fetal fluid during the earlier stages of the pregnancy. In case it doesn t, a procedure known as D&C (Dilution & Curettage) is performed to remove the fluid and prevent infection.

Since most miscarriages occur due to chromosomal abnormalities, nothing significant can be done to prevent them.

Tips to be taken to ensure a healthy conception are:

  • Regular Exercise
  • Stress Management
  • Daily consumption of folic acid
  • Not smoking

Honey Nutrition Facts

 

It includes vitamins, trace enzymes, amino acids, and minerals like calcium, iron, sodium chlorine, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium. Doctors advise taking Honey.​

Some benefits of Honey 

  • Because of its bend toward the acidic PH level (3.2 to 4.5), it helps reduce bacteria growth and the antioxidant properties help it wipe out some free radicals.
  • Because of its high carbohydrate load, honey is a wonderful source of unprocessed sugar energy.
  • Honey also helps the brain absorb calcium, which helps with memory as well.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) gives credence to honey as a demulcent, which helps alleviate a cough due to the honey acting as a protective film over the throat.

My wife got positive in her pregnancy test before completing 1 months of marriage. Is it possible. If it is possible. Then how can she break the pregnancy. Because we don't want baby now. So please suggest me which medicine should be used to break pregnancy without any side effect.

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Ludhiana
Hi , yes it's possible for your wife to get pregnant before completion of 1 month of marriage if your marriage date coincide with your wife's fertile phase. I'll not advise you to abort your first pregnancy until unless you have a strong reason. Still if you don't want to continue this pregnancy, you can try abortion pill kit but under medical supervision.

How to remove early ectopic pregnancy without surgery? I mean is there any medicine for ectopic pregnancy?

How to remove early ectopic pregnancy without surgery? I mean is there any medicine for ectopic pregnancy?
At any stage of development, surgical removal of an ectopic growth and/or the fallopian tube section where it has implanted is the fastest treatment for ectopic pregnancy. Surgery may be your only treatment option if you have internal bleeding. When possible, surgery is done through a small incision using laparoscopy.

Gharelu Nuskhe For Face in Hindi - चेहरे के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Gharelu Nuskhe For Face in Hindi - चेहरे के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे

आज मैं कैसी लग रही हूं?.. ये हर रोज पूछा जाने वाला सवाल है। कभी दूसरों से तो कभी खुद से, क्योंकि दुनिया में ऐसा कोई नहीं.. जो सुन्दर ना दिखना चाहता हो। बेदाग़ निखरी त्वचा का हर कोई दीवाना होता है। 
पर मुश्किल ये है कि चेहरा कितना भी खूबसूरत क्यों  ना हो। उसपर एक छोटा सा भी मुहांसा हो जाए तो पूरे चेहरे की सुंदरता को तार-तार कर देता है। ख़ासकर टीनएज में हम में से ज्यादातर लोगों को इस तकलीफ़ से जूझना पड़ता है।

कारण  
हार्मोनल चेंजेस, ऑयली स्किन, किसी चीज से एलर्जी, ज्यादा तेलहनयुक्त भोजन, पेट की बीमारियां। कास्मेटिक्स, पर्याप्त पानी न पीने की आदत, और धूल-मिट्टी गन्दगी के संपर्क में आने जैसी कई वजहों से अक्सर कील मुहांसे हो जाते हैं, इनसे बचने के लिए हमें अपनानी पड़ती हैं कुछ सावधानियां और कुछ घरेलु उपाय।.. 

1. मुंहासों को न फोडें 
जब भी आपको मुंहासे आएं, उनसे झुंझलाकर या छुटकारा पाने के लिए उसे फोड़ें नहीं। क्योंकि जब आप इसे फोड़ते हैं। तो इसका सीरम निकलकर पूरे चेहरे पर फैल जाता है, जिससे पूरे चेहरे पर मुंहासे हो जाते हैं।
2. तौलिये से न रगड़ें 
मुहांसों को कभी तौलिया से ना रगड़ें। क्योंकि ऐसा करने से आप अनजाने में एक जगह के मुंहासे को पूरे चेहरे पर फैलने का मौका दे देते हैं। इसलिए बेहतर होगा कि चेहरे पर आये मुहांसों के साथ इस तरह की छेड़छाड़ ना करें।
3. भाप 
मुहांसे होने पर स्किन के उस हिस्से को भाप देने से स्किन के पोर्स खुल जाते हैं। इससे स्किन के सेल्स को सांस लेने में आसानी होती है। त्वचा की सारी गन्दगी और एक्स्ट्रा ऑइल। जो कील मुंहासे बनकर चेहरे पर जमा होते हैं। वो ख़त्म हो जाते हैं। भाप लेने से त्वचा के दूसरे इन्फेक्शन भी ख़त्म हो जाते हैं। भाप लेने के लिए आप स्टीमर या किसी बड़े बर्तन में पानी उबालें। पानी उबलने पर अपने चेहरे को बर्तन की ओर झुकाएं। ताकि भाप चेहरे पर आए। इसके बाद चेहरे को गुनगुने पानी से धोकर तेल मुफ्त मॉइस्चराइजर लगाएं। ये नुस्खा कुछ दिन रेगुलर आजमाएं,और कील मुहांसों से हमेशा के लिए छुटकारा पा जाएं।
4. कपूर और नारियल तेल  
कपूर तो हम सभी के घरों में होता है। कपूर के औषधीय गुणों से भी हम सभी वाकिफ़ हैं। यह  पूजा पाठ आरती में तो हमेशा इस्तेमाल किया ही जाता है। साथ ही शरीर के जल जाने पर। हर तरह की स्किन रिलेटेड प्रॉब्लम से निपटने में भी अहम् रोल अदा करता है। तो कपूर हमारे मुंहासों के लिए भी कुछ कम कारगर नहीं।
जब भी आपको मुंहासे परेशान करें। आप बस थोड़ा सा कपूर नारियल के तेल में मिला लें। इस पेस्ट को अपने मुहांसों पर लगाएं। और 10 मिनट बाद धो लें। थोड़े ही दिनों में आप अपने चेहरे को मुंहासो से मुक्त पाएंगे।
5. पुदीना और हल्दी 
आमतौर पर सभी जानते हैं कि पुदीने से चटनी बनाई जाती है। जलजीरा बनाने में इस्तेमाल होता है।लेकिन पुदीने में कई तरह के औषधीय गुणों के साथ-साथ आपके चेहरे का सौन्दर्य निखारने की विशेषता भी होती है। इसमें मौजूद मेंथोल त्वचा को स्वस्थ बनाता है और कील मुंहासों को दूर भगाता है।  और हल्दी के गुणों से तो आप वाकिफ हैं ही, सो थोड़ा सा पुदीना पीसकर उसमें एक चुटकी हल्दी मिलाएं। और रोज रात चेहरे पर लगाकर 30 मिनट बाद चेहरा धो लें। इससे आपके चेहरे से मुंहासे अलविदा कहकर चले जाएंगे।
6. चन्दन पाउडर 
चंदन का पाउडर मुंहासे भगाने में बहुत कारगर इलाज है। यह न सिर्फ आपके चेहरे को फ्रेश रखता  है। बल्कि मुंहासों को दुबारा लौटने से भी रोकता है। अगर आपके चेहरे पर मुंहासे हैं। तो चंदन पाउडर, हल्दी  और कपूर को मिला कर एक पेस्टट तैयार करें। इसे मुंहासों पर लगाएं। और 2-3 घंटों के बाद चेहरे को ठंडे पानी से धो लें। इसे रेगुलर इस्तेमाल करके आप हमेशा के लिए मुहांसों से छुटकारा पा सकते हैं।
7. काली मिर्च और गुलाब जल 
काली मिर्च खाने का स्वाद तो बढ़ाती ही है। मुंहासों को ख़त्म करने में भी काली मिर्च जादुई असर रखती है। जब भी आपको मुंहासे परेशान करें तो बस आप काली मिर्च की मदद लें। काली मिर्च के कुछ दाने गुलाब जल में पीसकर रात को चेहरे पर लगाएं। सुबह चेहरे को गर्म पानी से धो लें। इससे आपके मुंहासे तो सूख ही जाएंगे। साथ ही चेहरे की झुर्रियां भी ख़त्म हो जाएंगी। और आपका चेहरा चमकने लगेगा।
8. बेकिंग सोडा और शहद 
वैसे तो बेकिंग सोडा हम खाने – पीने में इस्तेमाल करते हैं। पर ये मुंहासों की अचूक और चमत्कारी दवा है। कील मुंहासों से निजात पाने के लिए एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा में एक चम्मच शहद मिलाएं और थोड़ा गरम पानी डालकर इसका पेस्ट बना लें। अब इस पेस्ट को क्रीम की तरह चेहरे पर लगा लें। दस मिनट तक इसे लगा रहने दें। उसके बाद चेहरा ठन्डे पानी से धो लें। कुछ ही दिनों में आपका चेहरा चमकता हुआ बेदाग़ दिखने लगेगा।

A-around 15% of pregnancies gets miscarried, that is nature's rule. You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

It is very important to understand that lumps in breast are not always serious especially when they occur at younger age group. However it is equally important to undergo clinical evaluation and usg of the breast to understand the nature of the lump. If possible please upload your usg breast report to decide further course of action.
