Seasonal Change and Allergies That Accompany It!

MBBS
General Physician, Malappuram
Seasonal Change and Allergies That Accompany It!

The impact of weather and the natural world on human health is multifarious. The science that pertains to atmospheric effects on the body is known as biometeorology and experts in this field have conducted various tests and studies to determine the nature of the relationship between changes in weather patterns and the health of human beings.

Some of the ways in which seasonal and atmospheric changes in weather affect human health are as follows:
 

  1. Migraines and HeadachesPeople who are susceptible to frequent attacks of headaches and migraines are easily affected by changes in weather. Falling atmospheric pressure, spikes in temperature and increase in humidity can lead to these conditions.
  2. Asthma attacks: Fluctuations in weather patterns are known to cause asthma attacks in those who suffer from respiratory conditions. This happens especially in the case of thunderstorms or sudden temperature drops.
  3. Stiffening of joints: The onset of cold and damp weather conditions are known to cause joint stiffness. Those who suffer from chronic joint pain and arthritis suffer the most when the weather turns for the worse.
  4. Allergies: Many people blame the occurrence of allergy related symptoms to the presence of pollen in the air during spring. But in certain cases, anomalies in atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity can lead to the onset of allergies and related symptoms such as incessant coughing, sneezing and nasal congestion.
  5. Cardiovascular disorders: Low temperatures create a lot of risks for those who suffer from heart conditions and other cardiovascular disorders. Cold weather impairs functioning of the arteries by constricting them and can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Harsh winters and cold waves are problematic for heart patients as their thermoregulatory systems are poorly equipped to deal with the drop in mercury levels.
  6. Skin diseases: The skin is the first line of defense against external factors like changes in the temperature. Hot and humid weather can cause skin rashes and eczema, leading to itchiness and irritation. On the other hand, cold and windy climes are known to make the skin rough and dehydrated. Hence, temperature fluctuations adversely affect skin health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Genophobia - 3 Associated Causes

MBBS
Sexologist, Panchkula
Genophobia - 3 Associated Causes

Genophobia or coitophobia is the irrational psychological fear of intercourse. It is a type of a phobia and people suffering from it fill all or most of the criteria of specific phobia according to the ICD (The International Statistical Classification of Diseases). Genophobic people may be terrified of sexual intercourse or all acts involving sex. It is different from erotophobia in the sense erotophobia is the irrational fear of sexuality and not the act in itself.

Causes:

  1. The causes of genophobia may be attributed to different experiences and origins according to different psychological perspectives. According to the psychoanalytic perspective, genophobia may be caused by the rigid or extremely religious upbringing, which affected the development of ego, making the individual fear all acts that are sexual because it causes moral anxiety and a severe clash of the superego (ethical portion of one's personality)and i'd (primitive component of one's personality).
  2. According to the learning perspective, genophobia may develop due to an unpleasant sexual experience such as rape or molestation. Rape Trauma Syndrome leads the survivor to relive the trauma several times and develop apprehension. They may begin to fear sex eventually by relating it to the unpleasant experience, eventually leading to genophobia. It may also be caused if the individual observes sexual acts that are traumatizing in nature, in media or otherwise.
  3. It may also result from severe performance anxiety, especially for those who lack sexual experience and have abstained from sex for a prolonged period of time. There is also a chance that other phobias, such as the fear of diseases, especially STDs, may lead to a fear of sexual acts. Some people might relate sexual intercourse with acquiring diseases, thus leading to the development of genophobia.

Symptoms: Symptoms of genophobia include the fear of sexual intercourse and all acts within, breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, feeling sick and fear of losing control. All these symptoms take place in the context of sexual acts.

Treatment: Genophobia is treated like all other phobias. Therapeutic technique such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (a conversation centric therapy that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs can affect one's actions) is widely used in the treatment of genophobia along with medications. The therapeutic technique varies from patient to patient. For instance, the therapeutic technique used for a rape survivor would be completely different from that which is used for an individual with a fear of STDs. With proper treatment, genophobia is curable, eventually allowing the individual to have a particularly healthy sex life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Dear user. Abortions can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

If you are in a setup where continuous fetal heart monitoring during labor is available, you may try a normal delivery. A single/double loop of cord around neck is not an absolute indication for caesarean section. However, an operative delivery may be required if there's non reassuring fetal heart rate during pains/ any other maternal morbidity.

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi - तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi -  तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

नशा एक ऐसी बीमारी है जो हमें और हमारे अपनों को जीवन भर रुलाने की वजह बन सकती है। समाज का हर तबक़ा, हर उम्र के लोग नशे की चपेट में आते जा रहे हैं। आज बच्चे, बूढ़े, महिलाएं, पुरुष सभी नशे की लत घिरे हुए हैं और यह स्थिति दिन ब दिन भयावह रूप लेती जा रही है।
यूनिवर्सिटी ऑफ सिडनी के रिसर्चर्स का कहना है कि तम्बाकू का सेवन धूम्रपान के रूप में करने से आपके गले की नली जहा से आप सांस लेते है उसमें ऐसा नुकसान पहुँचा सकता है कि धूम्रपान छोड़ने के बाद भी वह नुकसान की भरपाई नही की जा सकती, इसलिए स्मोकर्स अगर खुद को यह दिलासा देते हैं कि वह आज तो सिगरेट पी रहे है पर कल छोड़ देंगे, तो वह खुद को ही नुक्सान पहुंचा रहे होते हैं। एक आंकड़े के अनुसार, साल 2020 तक मौत के तीन मुख्य कारणों में से एक स्मोकिंग द्वारा होने वाले रोग बन जाएंगे।

कई कारणों से लोग तम्बाकू का सेवन करना शुरू करते है। कभी स्ट्रेस कम करने के लिए तो कभी गुस्से में, कभी टाइम पास करने और अक्सर शौक समझकर तम्बाकू का सेवन करते हैं, पर अंदाजा नहीं लगा सकते कि आप जिस तरह से तम्बाकू को सहजता से खा रहे हैं उसका उतना ही दयनीय परिणाम भी होता है। खैनी, सिगरेट, बीड़ी, गुटखा वगैरा तम्बाकू को जिस भी रूप में लिया जाए इसके नुकसान निश्चित हैं। तम्बाकू का नशा कोई एक समस्या ना होकर कई समस्याओं की जड़ है और यह शारीरिक और मानसिक रूप से नुकसान तो करता ही है साथ ही मौत को जल्दी बुला देता है।
उन सभी लोग का जो तम्बाकू का सेवन करते है यह जानना जरूरी है कि तम्बाकू से बनने वाले अलग अलग नशेड़ी चिजों का कितना घातक असर आपके शरीर पर अलग-अलग तरह से पड़ता है। तो चलिए आज हम आपको बताएंगे तम्बाकू से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में।

1. सिगरेट
हो सकता है सिगरेट का एक कश लगाकर आप दिन भर कामकाज के तनाव को भले ही कुछ पल भूल जाएं पर धूम्रपान की आपकी आदत शरीर के कई हिस्सों के लिए खतरे की घंटी है। इसमें मौजूद बेनजीन, टार, फोर्मलडीहाइड, आर्सेनिक, निकोटिन जैसे तत्व शरीर के लिए कई रोगों का आमंत्रण हो सकते हैं।
कई शोधों में यह प्रमाणित हो चुका है कि धूम्रपान से फेफड़ों का कैंसर, गले का कैंसर, मुंह, किडनी, ब्लैडर, पैंक्रियाज और पेट में कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक होता है। इसके अलावा अधिक धूम्रपान करने वालों को दिल के रोगों और स्ट्रोक का खतरा अधिक होता है। कार्बन और निकोटिन का मिश्रण शरीर में हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ाता है। सिगरेट में पाया जाने वाला टार फेफड़ों के कैंसर की बड़ी वजह है। धुएं से निकलने वाली कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड गैस मांसपेशियों, दिमाग और कोशिकाओं में पहुंचने वाली ऑक्सीजन को रोकती है जिससे हृदय, फेफड़ों और मस्तिष्क के काम करने में दिक्कत हो सकती है। गर्भावस्था में धूम्रपान या पैसिव स्मोकिंग (धूम्रपान करने वालों की संगत) गर्भपात, समय से पहले डिलिवरी, बच्चे का कम वजन आदि का कारण हो सकता है।

2. तम्बाकू, खैनी, गुटखा
जर्दा, सुर्ती और पान मसाले के नाम पर तंबाकू खाना अगर आपकी आदत का हिस्सा हो चुका है तो आपकी इस आदत को बदलने की कुछ बेहद जरूरी वजहें हो सकती हैं। तंबाकू में 28 किस्म के कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं जिनसे कैंसर हो सकता है। 
तंबाकू से ल्यूकोप्लाकिया का रिस्क अधिक रहता है जिसमें दांत और मसूड़े तेजी से सड़ते हैं। मुंह के कैंसर का यह बहुत बड़ा कारण है। गले का कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। तंबाकू में मौजूद निकोटिन हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा देता है जिससे दिल के रोगों की आशंका अधिक रहती है। भोजन करने की इच्छा खत्म कर देता है।

3. हुक्का
आज हुक्का न सिर्फ गांवों तक सीमित है बल्कि तमाम पब, होटलों और रेस्तरां में हुक्के (तंबाकू युक्त हुक्के) का चलन बढ़ा है। अगर आप इसे सिगरेट के विकल्प के रूप में देखते हैं तो सेहत पर इसका प्रभाव जानना जरूरी है।
हुक्का में सिगरेट की तरह ही टार, कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड, हेवी मेटल्स और कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व हैं जो कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ाते हैं। इससे मुंह का कैंसर, दिल के रोग और फेफड़ों के कैंसर की आशंका सबसे अधिक होती है। सिगरेट की तरह ही हुक्के का निकोटिन भी हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ाता है। गर्भावस्था के दौरान हुक्का पीने या हुक्का पीने वालों के दौरान मौजूद रहने से गर्भवती महिलाओं के गर्भ को नुकसान हो सकता है। हुक्का के पाइप से कई प्रकार के संक्रमणों का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। 

4. सिगार
हालांकि सिगार का प्रचलन हमारे यहां अपेक्षाकृत कम है पर कुछ लोग सिगार को सिगरेट की अपेक्षा बेहतर विकल्प मानते हैं। अगर आप भी ऐसा सोचते हैं तो जान लें कि तंबाकू का सेवन हर रूप में सेहत के लिए नुकसानदायक ही है। 
सिगार में मौजूद निकोटिन भले ही फेफड़ों में कम जाए लेकिन यह मुंह को सीधा प्रभावित करता है जिससे मुंह और गले के कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। इसमें बहुत अधिक मात्रा में कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं। शोधों की मानें तो सिगार में 60 से भी अधिक कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व पाए जाते हैं। दिल के रोगों का खतरा इससे अधिक होता है। इसके सेवन से धमनियों के ब्लॉकेज और दिल के दौरे का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। कम समय में ही दांत गिरने लगते हैं।

जैसा कि आपने जाना कि तंबाकू का सेवन किसी भी हाल में खतरनाक है इसलिए अगर चाह हो जिंदगी और अपनों से तो तम्बाकू से किनारा कर लें। वरना तम्बाकू आपकी जिंदगी को किनारे लगा देगा।

I started smoking a few months back and it continued for about 2 months. Now my flatmate is accusing me of giving her PCO (polycystic ovarian syndrome?). I think 2 months is very less time considering I smoked in my room and that too a max of 4-5 cigarettes a day. Is there any truth to what she is saying?

Smoking is always injurious to health. Active smoker it affects more than passive smoker. About your query, I do not think so, pcod is due to bodily hormonal disturbance. It dosent occur suddenly. It is a gradual process in which person get irregular and delayed menses, weight gain etc. Family history of thyroid is also an important factor.

Hi I'm systemic sclerosis patient now I'm pregnant my LMP is 30 December 2016. Is it complications please suggest me ...
Women with systemic sclerosis can safely have healthy pregnancies. Those with early diffuse scleroderma should wait until their disease stabilizes before becoming pregnant to decrease the risk of renal crisis. High-risk pregnancy management should be standard for all scleroderma pregnancies because of the high frequency of premature births.

Most Common Sexual Problems In Men And Women And Their Treatment

Making love brings an intimacy between the couple that connects them in all ways, not just physical. Couples who do not have a great love life usually do not have a very fulfilling relationship. Though not openly admitted to, sexual problems are very common. Given the private nature of the issue, not many frankly talk about it though. However, sexual problems are quite common and can be attributed to a combination of physical and emotional reasons.

Sexual problems can be threatening to the health of the relationship and can break relationships too. Read on to know some of the most common sexual problems in men and women and simple but sure ways to deal with them.

Common Sexual Problems in Men

  1. Impotence: This is defined as the inability to attain and/or sustain an erection long enough for a satisfying intercourse. Quite a common problem, it can be due to relationship issues, hormonal problems, or performance anxiety. A frank talk with the partner and if required a counseling session can help identify the cause, and the problem seems to disappear.

  2. Loss of Libido: This is a loss of arousal or reduced sex drive. This again has a strong physical and psychological component to it. Hypertension, diabetes, stress, hormonal issues, performance anxiety, and relationship issues are some of the reasons for loss of drive.

  3. Ejaculation Disorders: Premature ejaculation is the early release of sperm. Retrograde ejaculation is when the sperms are released in the reverse direction back into the bladder. Delayed ejaculation is where there is delayed the release of sperms. There is often an underlying physical reason for this, which if corrected, helps in correcting the issue.

Treatment: For most sexual problems, acknowledging is the first step towards effective treatment. There are medications and hormonal supplements which are quite effective. Sex education, frank communication with the partner, and if required counselling is quite effective. Other therapies include hormone replacements, vacuum devices and penile implants.

Common Sexual Problems In Women:

  1. Decreased Libido: Reduced sexual drive is more common in women than men. This could be due to hormonal issues (menopausal), strained relationships, vaginal and gynecologic infections, pelvic pain, painful sex, uterine disorders, etc.

  2. Dyspareunia: Painful sexual intercourse is very common in females, and as much as 75% of women have experienced this during their sex life. Very commonly caused by vaginal dryness, vaginal infections, uterine disorders, UTIs and menopause. This again contributes to reduced libido. Lubricants, topical antibiotics and hormonal supplements can be used in addition to treating the underlying condition.

Treatment: For most sexual problems, as noted already, acknowledging and admitting is the first step. Treatment involves addressing underlying physical issues like hormonal imbalance, antibiotics, topical lubricants, etc. Counselling and involving the partner are most effective. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
