5 Super Brain Drinks that Boost Your Memory

When it comes to the brain, simple yet easy to make juices can make a lot of difference. These juices not only improve your memory, but are of great help to the cognitive functions as well. While green tea is a known component of increased brain function, there are other drinks too, which can charge your brain over the long term if consumed daily:

  1. Beet juice: Apart from being a nutritional powerhouse, beet juice is a great source of nitric acid. The latter helps with blood flow in the body. A smooth blood flow, on the other hand, helps the brain in functioning properly. A study has found that people who consume beet juice have an increased circulation in the white matter resulting from an increased brain activity. This juice is sweet in taste and can be consumed every alternate day.
  2. Berry Smoothies: Acai is a fruit which has a South African origin and hits the top of the list when it comes to brain assisting food. It increases the flow of the blood and dilates the blood vessels. However, this is extremely expensive. Berries also have a similar effect on the brain, but they are less powerful in nature. What can be done is to mix a little ingredient of Acai in frozen berries juice and drink the same every day. Frozen berries retain the freshness and the nutritional benefits. This drink will improvise your brain and increase blood flow in the body.
  3. Pomegranate juice: Pomegranate is a great antioxidant and it very aptly limits the free radicals from damaging the brain cells. Antioxidants are also credited with increased blood flow and protection of the heart. A healthy cardiovascular system is synonymous to an increased brain function. What is surprising is the fact that Pomegranate has more antioxidant content compared to red wine and green tea. Pomegranate juice can be consumed daily during the morning or afternoon.
  4. Carrot juice: Carrot is known for its healthy components that are beneficial for the eyes. Recent studies have revealed that they are great for the brain too. Like other colored vegetables, they are a great source of antioxidant and have a high content of beta-carotene. Carrot juice can reduce the inflammation of the brain cells and improve memory. Carrot juice is not at all bitter and the same can be consumed every alternate day after your meal.
  5. Cocoa: A Harvard study revealed that two cups of cocoa on a daily basis greatly helps a person in improving memory. Cocoa contains flavanols that keep the blood pressure normal and relaxes the blood vessel linings. Cocoa is also known to be a great antioxidant agent that limits the free radical to affect the brain cells. Cocoa should not be overloaded with sugar and should be consumed hot before starting your day.

Knee Pain: Causes and Tips to Manage Knee Pain

The knee is the largest joint of the body and is made up of upper and lower bones that are separated by two discs known as menisci. While minor knee pain may be experienced by many people, it should be handled with medical intervention when it becomes a serious and debilitating problem. Sudden injury or injury due to overuse as well as myriad conditions that affect the joints and muscles can bring about knee pain. Underlying conditions like osteoporosis or arthritis, which affect the bones and joints, can also cause knee pain. The symptoms include painful swelling and stiffness as well as severe discomfort.

Let us learn more about the causes of knee pain and the ways in which it can be managed:

  • Injury: Exercise and sports injuries are one of the most common causes that can be the start of acute knee pain, as well as chronic condition. These kinds of injuries can affect the ligaments and cartilage which leads to severe pain. The pain can even affect the way one functions in one's daily life. Knee ligament injuries can also cause this kind of pain. These ligaments are bands of tissues that connect the thigh bone with the lower leg bones. Sprains and tears in the ACL or PCL are common in sports injuries, and may even require surgery in many cases. Knee Cartilage Tears can also take place in the hard yet flexible cartilage of the knee which can affect the meniscus around the knee. This condition may also require surgery.
  • Arthritis: This condition can affect the knees specifically and is one of the most common types of arthritis. This is a chronic condition which gets progressively worse over time and may even require surgery. Stiffness and inflammation are common symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is also a degenerative auto-immune disease that can affect the knees and cause knee pain. Furthermore, post traumatic arthritis can also be experienced after an injury. Osteoarthritis is another common condition that leads to knee pain. It basically occurs due to wear and tear of the knees over a prolonged period and is usually experienced by patients over the age of 50.
  • Managing Knee Pain: While pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed for most cases, along with the surgery in long run, it is also possible to manage knee pain with the help of better lifestyle choices like regular knee and muscle strengthening exercises as well as REST - rest, ice, compression and elevation. These methods can help in relieving inflammation and pain. But very severe cases will require medical intervention, so it is imperative to get in touch with your doctor if the condition does not improve. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

4 winning ways to strengthen lower abdominal muscles and prevent back pain

Abdominal muscles play a very important role in supporting our spine from front. There is a muscle called transverse abdominal muscle which is different from the six pack muscles. This lower abdominal muscle can be strengthened in simple ways.

1. Active sitting
When watching tv or waiting for appointments, at bus stops, train station etc do these simple exercises. Sit up straight. Now draw your belly button in towards your chest but do not hold your breath. Count till five and relax. Repeat this 10 to 15 times.

2. Static abdominal exercise
When laying down flat draw your tummy muscles in and feel the arch in your back flatten. Do not hold breath. Just count till five and relax. Repeat 10-15 times.

3. Cycle in air
When laying down flat (on bed or yoga mat) lift both your legs up in air (your legs should be at 90 degrees. Now try to cycle in air for 10 rounds. Relax and repeat 5 times.

4. Cat and camel pose
Get on your hands and knees. Draw in your tummy muscles and hunch your back without holding your breath. (camel pose) hold five seconds.
Relax and get a curve in low back (cat pose). Wait for five seconds. Repeat this cat and camel pose 10-15 times.

Please check with your doctor if you can try these exercises safely.

With swallowing semen no one can get pregnant and to get pregnant, sufficient quantity of semen should be deposited in the vagina. Menses can get delayed because of hormonal changes. You r 100% not pregnant and wait for another 1 month for getting menses.

Dengue Fever

Dengue Fever

हर साल दुनिया में लगभग 10 करोड़ लोग डेंगू / Dengue Fever के शिकार होते है। भारत में भी हर साल कई लोगो की Dengue Fever के कारण मृत्यु हो जाती है। हमें रोज समाचार पत्रों में या News channel पर Dengue Fever का आतंक देखने को मिलता है। समय की जरुरत है की इस बीमारी के बारे में लोगो में अधिक से अधिक जागरूकता फैलाई जाए। इस लेख द्वारा मेरी कोशिश है की, आपको Dengue Fever सम्बन्धी अधिक से अधिक जानकारी प्राप्त हो।

Dengue Fever के बारे में संक्षिप्त जानकारी निचे दी गयी है :
Dengue Fever क्या है ?

Dengue Fever यह एक viral बीमारी है जो की Dengue virus के 4 प्रकारों में से किसी एक प्रकार के Dengue virus से होता है। जब कोई रोगी Dengue Fever से ठीक हो जाता है, तब उस मरीज को उस एक प्रकार के Dengue virus से लम्बे समय के लिए प्रतिरोध / immunity मिल जाती है परन्तु अन्य 3 प्रकार के Dengue virus से Dengue Fever दोबारा हो सकता है। दूसरी बार होने वाला Dengue Fever काफी गंभीर हो सकता है जिसे Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever कहते है।

Dengue Fever कैसे होता है ?

Dengue Fever हवा, पानी, साथ खाने से या छूने से नहीं फैलता है। Dengue Fever संक्रमित स्त्री / मादा जाती के Aedes aegypti नामक मच्छर के काटने से होता है। अगर किसी व्यक्ति को Dengue Fever है और उस व्यक्ति को यह मच्छर काट कर उसका खून पिता है तो उस मच्छर में Dengue virus युक्त खून चला जाता है। जब यह संक्रमित मच्छर किसी स्वस्थ व्यक्ति को काट लेता है तो Dengue virus उस स्वस्थ व्यक्ति में चला जाता है।

Aedes aegypti मच्छर की कुछ खास विशेषताए निचे दी गयी है :

यह दिन में ज्यादा सक्रिय होते है.
इन मच्छर के शरीर पर चीते जैसी धारिया होती है.
ज्यादा ऊपर तक नहीं उड़ पाते है.
ठन्डे और छाव वाले जगहों पर रहना ज्यादा पसंद करते है.
पर्दों के पीछे या अँधेरे वाली जगह पर रहते है.
घर के अन्दर रखे हुए शांत पानी में प्रजनन / breeding करते है.
अपने प्रजनन क्षेत्र के 200 meter की दुरी के अन्दर ही उड़ते है.
गटर या रस्ते पर जमा खराब पानी में कम प्रजनन करते है.
पानी सुख जाने के बाद भी इनके अंडे 12 महीनो तक जीवित रह सकते है.
Dengue Fever के लक्षण क्या है ?

संक्रमित मच्छर के काटने के 3 से 14 दिनों बाद Dengue Fever के लक्षण दिखने शुरू होते है। Dengue Fever के लक्षण निचे दिए गए है :
तेज ठंडी लगकर बुखार आना
सरदर्द
आँखों में दर्द
बदनदर्द / जोड़ो में दर्द
भूक कम लगना
जी मचलाना, उलटी
दस्त लगना
चमड़ी के निचे लाल चट्टे आना
Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever की गंभीर स्तिथि में आँख, नाक में से खून भी निकल सकता है
Dengue Fever का इलाज क्या है ?

Dengue Fever का रोकथाम / Prevention ही इसका सबसे अच्छा और बेहतर ईलाज है.
Dengue Fever की कोई विशेष दवा या vaccine नहीं है.
एक viral रोग होने के कारण इसकी दवा निर्माण करना बेहद कठिन कार्य है.
Dengue Fever के इलाज / चिकित्सा में लाक्षणिक चिकित्सा / symptomatic treatment की जाती है.
Dengue Fever की कोई दवा नहीं है पर इस रोग से शरीर पर होने वाले side-effects से बचने के लिए रोगी को डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार आराम करना चाहिए और समय पर दवा लेना चाहिए।
रोगी को पर्याप्त मात्रा में आहार और पानी लेना चाहिए। बुखार के लिए डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार paracetamol लेना चाहिए।
बुखार या सरदर्द के लिए Aspirin / Brufen का उपयोग न करे.
डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार नियमित Platelet count की जाँच करना चाहिए।
हमारी रोगप्रतिकार शक्ति Dengue Fever से लड़ने में सक्षम होती है, इसलिए हमें हमेशा योग्य संतुलित आहार और व्यायाम द्वारा रोग प्रतिकार शक्ति को बढाने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए।
Dengue Fever के बचाव के उपाय क्या है ?

जैसे की मैंने पहले भी लिखा है, Dengue Fever का रोकथाम / Prevention ही इसका सबसे बेहतर ईलाज है।
Dengue Fever के बचाव के उपाय निचे दिए गए है :
घर के अन्दर और आस-पास पानी जमा न होने दे। कोई भी बर्तन में खुले में पानी न जमने दे.
बर्तन को खाली कर रखे या उसे उलटा कर कर रख दे.
अगर आप किसी बर्तन, ड्रम या बाल्टी में पानी जमा कर रखते है तो उसे ढक कर रखे.
अगर किसी चीज में हमेशा पानी जमा कर रखते है तो पहले उसे साबुन और पानी से अच्छे से धो लेना चाहिए, जिससे मच्छर के अंडे को हटाया जा सके.
घर में कीटनाशक का छिडकाव करे.
कूलर का काम न होने पर उसमे जमा पानी निकालकर सुखा कर दे। जरुरत होने पर कूलर का पानी रोज नियमित बदलते रहे.
किसी भी खुली जगह में जैसे की गड्डो में, गमले में या कचरे में पानी जमा न होने दे। अगर पानी जमा है तो उसमे मिटटी डाल दे.
खिड़की और दरवाजे में जाली लगाकर रखे। शाम होने से पहले दरवाजे बंद कर दे.
ऐसे कपडे पहने जो पुरे शरीर को ढक सके.
रात को सोते वक्त मच्छरदानी लगाकर सोए.
अन्य मच्छर विरोधी उपकरणों का इस्तेमाल करे जैसे की electric mosquito bat, repellent cream, sprays etc.
अगर बच्चे खुले में खेलने जाते है तो उने शरीर पर mosquito repellent cream लगाए और पुर शरीर ढके ऐसे कपडे पहनाए।
अपने आस-पास के लोगो को भी मच्छर को फैलने से रोकने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करे.
अपने आस-पास में अगर कोई Dengue Fever या Malaria के मरीज का पता चलता है तो इसकी जानकारी स्वास्थय विभाग एवं नगर निगम को दे, जिससे तुरंत मच्छर विरोधी उपाय योजना की जा सके.
Dengue Fever के ज्यादातर मरीजो की मृत्यु platelet या खून के अभाव में होती है। मेरी आप सभी से request है की जरुरत के समय रक्तदान / Blood Donation करने से बिलकुल न घबराए और साल में कम से कम दो बार Blood Donation जरुर करे.
कई लोग Dengue Fever में Platelet Count बढाने के लिए पपीते के पत्ते का रस पिने के सलाह देते है। पपीते के पत्ते का रस पिने के बाद कई मरीजो में platelet count में सुधार होते हुए देखा गया है। इसका कोई ठोस पुरावा नहीं है और न कोई research हुआ है.
