Think Twice Before You Drink Water From A Plastic Bottle - It Can Harm You Much!

M.B.B.S., M.D.
General Physician, Delhi
Think Twice Before You Drink Water From A Plastic Bottle - It Can Harm You Much!

We store water in all sorts of plastic bottles, jugs or containers. It can be low grade or high grade, but plastic is plastic! This is a very harmful daily practice as plastic containers carry lot of chemicals and bacteria. 

Let's see the harmful effects of drinking water in plastic bottles:

1. Harmful Substances: Apart from harmful chemicals in plastic, water when get stored in plastic bottles also produces harmful substances like fluoride, arsenic and aluminium which can be poison for human body. So, drinking water from plastic bottles would mean drinking slow poison that will slowly and steadily deteriorate your health.

2. Dioxin Production: Plastic does melt in hot environment. And we, often store water in plastic bottles while driving and so many times leave it in the car where it is in the direct exposure of sun. Such heating releases a toxin called Dioxin which when consumed can accelerate breast cancer.

3. BPA Generation: Biphenyl A is an estrogen-mimicking chemical which can lead to lot of health problems like diabetes, obesity, fertility problems, behavioural problems and early puberty in girls. It's better not to store and drink water from a plastic bottle.

4. Liver Cancer and Reduced Sperm Count: Because of presence of a chemical called phthalates in plastic, drinking water from plastic bottles can also lead to liver cancer and reduction in sperm count.

5. Vitamin-Based Bottled Water: Nowadays, we get water mostly in plastic bottles and to increase its health content, manufacturers make it vitamin-enriched to attract buyers. But this is even more harmful as it carries health-harming additives like food dyes and high fructose corn syrup.

6. Impact on immune system: Our immune system is immensely affected when we drink water in plastic bottles. The chemicals from plastic bottles are ingested and tend to  disturb our body's immune system.

I hope the above reasons are enough for you to think carefully before you drink water from a plastic bottle the next time. If you need more convincing or would like to understand the effects better, feel free to ask me your query.

Also, if you found this helpful, please Share this with people you love and care for.

Hello lybrate-user- pain during menses is due to improper tone of uterus muscles. Use Dashmoolaristha 2 tsp twice daily for 10 days before menses. This single medicine will cure all of your menstrual problems(do not use the medicine more than ten days as the body will become habitual to it and will not respond quickly)

Aloe vera aloe vera pulp or juice may also help getting frequent menstrual cycles. Following this tip on regular basis can help you get you positive results for sure. Aloe vera regulates the hormones responsible for menstruation and helps in getting regular menstrual flow. Just pluck some aloe vera leaves from your garden and extract the gel from it. Mix the gel with 1 tbsp of honey. Consume this daily before having a breakfast. Continue this for at least three months for best results. Avoid this home remedy during your periods.

Sexologist,
Sometimes due to hormone injections periods may be delayed. Are wife's periods regular? have you done any tests? if not you need to do wife's blood sugar fasting level, tsh, prolactin, hb, tc, dc levels, ultrasound of pelvis, husband's semen analysis. If all these are normal then hsg x-ray to see the tubes. Without reports no advice is proper. If you have reports upload at private question.

Garbhpat Ke Gharelu Nuskhe in Hindi - गर्भपात के घरेलू नुस्खे

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Garbhpat Ke Gharelu Nuskhe in Hindi - गर्भपात के घरेलू नुस्खे

सचमुच माँ बनने का एहसास बहुत ख़ास होता है. जिसकी ख़ुशी के आगे दुनिया की हर ख़ुशी फीकी लगती है .. लेकिन आप प्रेग्नेंट तब हो जाएँ जब आप माँ बनने के लिए तैयार ही ना हो यानि बिना फॅमिली प्लानिंग के. तब आपके दिल दिमाग में ख़ुशी, उत्साह के बजाय घबराहट, बेचैनी और डर हावी हो जाता है. 

गर्भपात करने के कई वजहें हो सकती हैं. कई बार ऐसा होता है कि संभोग के दौरान  प्रेमी प्रेमिका या पति पत्नी गर्भ निरोधक तरीकों का प्रयोग करना भूल जाते हैं, जिससे गर्भ ठहर जाता है. कई बार पति के चाहते हुए भी पत्नी बच्चा पैदा नहीं करना चाहती क्यूंकि  वह अपने शरीर को मेन्टेन रखना चाहती हैं, कई बार महिला की शारीरिक स्थिति माँ बनने योग्य नहीं होती. तो गर्भपात कराने के इस तरह के कई कारण हो सकते है. .और इस बात से हम कतई इंकार नहीं कर सकते की सेक्सुअल लाइफ मां बनने से ज्यादा एंजोयमेंट के लिए अहम होती है. इसलिए जिंदगी में अनचाहे प्रेगनेंसी जैसे आश्चर्य मिलने पर मानसिक स्थिति नाजुक स्तर पर पहुँच  जाती है और खासकर तब जब ये बात अपनों से शेयर भी न की जा सके. शादी-सुदा या धनी महिलाएं तो अस्पतालों में जाकर एबॉर्शन करवा लेती हैं पर गरीब या  कुंवारी लड़कियों के लिए जिन्हें इस बात को सबसे छिपाना भी होता है, उनके लिए ये बात मुसीबतसी का विषय बन जाती है. पर अब नहीं, क्योंकी  अब हम हैं न आपके साथ . जो आपको बताएँगे इस तरह की प्रॉब्लम से छुटकारा पाने के आसान घरेलु उपचार. 

गर्भपात से मतलब होता है माँ के गर्भवती होने के 24 हफ्ते के अंदर ही गर्भ में भ्रूण का  नष्ट होना. इसके 2 स्तर होते है. 

  1. प्रारंभिक गर्भपात : अगर गर्भपात माँ के गर्भवती होने के 12 हफ़्तों के भीतर हो तो उसे प्रारंभिक गर्भपात कहते है.  
  2. उत्तरवर्ती गर्भपात : यदि एबॉर्शन  13 से 24 हफ़्तों के बीच होता है तो उसे उत्तरवर्ती गर्भपात कहा जाता है.

तो अब हम जानेंगे गर्भपात करने में मदद करने वाली उन चीजों के बारे में जो हमारे घर में मौजूद होती हैं.

1. विटामिन सी 
यूँ तो विटामिन सी किसी भी इंसान के लिए काफी अहम होता है, क्योंकि यह विटामिन आपके शरीर की इम्युनिटी सिस्टम को मजबूत करता है. लकिन कई लोग नैचुरली एबॉर्शन करने के लिए बहुत ज्यादा विटामिन सी का इस्तेमाल करने की सलाह दी जाती है.  ऐसा माना जाता है कि बहुत ज्यादा क्वांटिटी में विटामिन सी का सेवन करने से खुद ब खुद गर्भपात हो जाता है. अगर आप विटामिन सी वाले फल और खासकर आवंला का सेवन प्रचूर मात्रा में करें तो गर्भपात होने की पूरी संभावना है.

2. पुदीना 
 पुदीने का तेल या पुदीने की चाय को प्रतिदिन 3 से 4 बार लेने से माहिला खुद को थका हुआ और चिडचिडापन महसूस करती है, साथ ही इससे इन्हें पसीना भी बहुत आता है. और ये सभी कारक स्त्री के गर्भपात को बढ़ावा देते है.

3. वर्कआउट 
गर्भ गिराने की कोशिश में आपको जरूरी नहीं की बस खाना ही पड़े. जी हाँ आप खूब जमकर उछल-कूद और एक्सरसाइज करें ये भी आपको गर्भ गिराने में मदद करेंगे.

4. पपीता और अनानास 
 गर्भपात के लिए पपीते के बारे में आप सभी ने सुना होगा. क्योकि हर गर्भवती स्त्री को ये सलाह दी जाती है कि वो पपीते से दूर रहे वर्ना उन्हें गर्भ से जुडी समस्या हो सकती है, पर आपको तो एबॉर्शन करवाना है तो आप जितना हो सके पपीता और अनानास खायें. और इसका एक फायदा यह भी है कि इससे पीरियड्स भी जल्दी आते है. इन दोनों में पाया जाने वाला रसायन जिसे पपेन कहा जाता है वह गर्भपात को बढ़ावा देता है. 

5. ग्रीन टी 
ग्रीन टी या हरी चाय से शरीर को कई फायदे होते हैं, जैसे कि वजन कम करना, शरीर को चुस्त रखना, हृदय को स्वस्थ रखना आदि. लेकिन अगर इसका ज्यादा सेवन कर लिए जाये तो ये शरीर के लिए समस्या भी उत्पन्न कर सकता है. खासतौर पर गर्भवती स्त्रियों के लिए. इसीलिए इसके पैकेट पर भी लिखा होता है कि गर्भवती स्त्री इसका सेवन न करें. पर आपको तो करना है एबॉर्शन तो आप करें इसका भरपूर इस्तेमाल .

ब्लड प्रेशर बढाएं 
अगर आपका ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़  जाता है तो पीरियड के दौरान आपको ज्यादा खून आता है . इसी तरह ये भी आपके गर्भपात के लिए फायदेमंद होता है. इसलिए आप ऐसी चीजें खाएं जो आपके ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ा दें और आप अपनी समस्या से छुटकारा पा जाएं .  

इन नुस्खों को तो आप बेशक अपनाएं पर नीचे बताई कुछ बातों पर खास गौर फरमाएं .

  1. जितना हो सके सेक्स के दौरान गर्भनिरोधक का इस्तेमाल और बार-बार गर्भपात करने से बचें . अन्यथा आपका स्वास्थ्य और भविष्य में माँ बनने की चाहत दोनों खतरे में पड़ सकते हैं.
  2. पुरुष साथी हर बार कंडोम का इस्तेमाल करें जिससे महिला साथी गर्भपात जैसी तकलीफों से बची रहें. 
  3. आपका शरीर स्वस्थ ना हो तो इन उपायों को अजमाने के साथ ही डॉक्टर की भी सलाह लें. 
  4. ध्यान दें की घरेलू गर्भपात का तरीका तभी तक काम करता है, जब गर्भ 1 या 2 महीने का हो वरना डॉक्टर से जरुर संपर्क करें.

How would life threatening sexual transmitted diseases happen? I'm 25, working, but have had multiple sexual partners (although all of them were protected sex). Am I prone to STD? How often do I need to get myself checked? What are the most obvious symptoms? I am very worried, please help!

Yup. There is risk of contracting hiv, hepatitis b, syphilis, genital tract infections like chlamydia, gonorrhea. Although risk is less in protected intercourse. Get hiv, hbsag checked now and after 6 months once to cover the window period. If you have excess white discharge, take antibiotics for that.

If you in regular relationship and do not want kids then better you resume some gud contraceptive method having low failure rates. Pill 72 is not a means of contraception it is a interceptor which is used as a back up if any contraceptive method fails.
