Hi Any viral infection, IgG positive means old infection, and that you are immune right now. IgM means new infection and risk to baby. SO, do not worry. Scans will anyways be done to check baby growth, and other things.

Palliative Care for Cancer Patients

MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Bargarh
Palliative Care for Cancer Patients

With terminal illnesses like cancer, the disease is not the only thing that requires treatment. In addition to controlling the severity and spread of the main disease, the effect it has on the other body systems including emotional, social, psychological problems and also physical issues like pain and inflammation. Though the disease has reached an advanced stage and cannot be cured, the patient can be made to be pain-free and at peace to the extent possible.

The goal of palliative care is not to cure - in fact, palliative care is in place for diseases like cancer from the time it is diagnosed and treatment is begun but becomes the major component of treatment once the cancer is identified to be in terminal stages. Therapeutic care aimed at curing the cancer is gradually reduced and palliative care assumes a bigger role. This is also called as symptomatic care, supportive care, or comfort care.

Aspects of palliative care: Once the disease is identified to be in terminal stages, then the following become considerations:

  1. Stay at home or hospital
  2. Withdraw chemotherapy and radiation?
  3. Withdraw feeding tube
  4. Spiritual discussions
  5. Reduce anxiety
  6. Good quality time with the family
  7. Reduce pain and suffering

As is evident, there is a huge component of social/emotional/spiritual management in addition to reducing pain and suffering:

  • Physical: Pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, loss of appetite are some symptoms that need to be managed. In addition to pain killers, small exercises can be included to make them feel better, even if it is just getting a breath of fresh air.
  • Social: Depression (learn the ways to handle depression), anxiety, uncertainty, fear are all looming large and they are not sure how to manage these feelings. Talking to a counselor or some close family member or friend can be a big relief - the burden is off their chest.
  • Legal: There could be issues related to property, insurance, property that also need to be discussed. External help can be sought if required to provide financial counselling and legal advice.
  • Spiritual: Looking into the spiritual needs and understanding the deeper meaning of life, restoring faith are some things that also can help them feel better. "Why did this happen to me?" is a question most people keep asking and while there is no answer, some solace can be provided through talks.

It is to be noted that palliative care is not just for the patient. The caretakers (family and close friends) are equally in need of some support. So, once the patient is identified to be in terminal stages, all effort is made so the final leg of the journey is peaceful and as painless as possible.

Respected Dr, we have 5 months' baby boy ,,,my wife has problem of low breastfeeding, she's providing powder prescribed as Child specialist,then shall we start boiled milk of cow...for his feeding?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology

Most parents believe that the breast milk is insuffiecient. Take weight of the child on a digital weighing machine prior to feeding and immediately after feed. This will convince you that child has got enough milk. . However if the milk is truly less, you can start undiluted, unsweetened boiled cow's milk with katori and spoon.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes - Know The Right Treatment!

Blocked Fallopian Tubes - Know The Right Treatment!

Motherhood is a gift and though every woman understands this, only those who are infertile, really yearn for it. There are several reasons why some women aren’t able to conceive a baby naturally. One of the most common reasons is a blocked fallopian tube, in fact; almost 20% of female infertility cases are due to this cause. The good news, however, is that it is treatable.

Fallopian tubes are essentially two pipe like tubes surrounding the uterus that act as a transport mechanism between the sperm and the fertilised egg. If there is an obstruction in any of the tubes, the sperm won’t be able to reach the egg and hence forming an embryo will effectively be impossible.

There are several reasons why fallopian tubes may be blocked:

  1. Infection: Some of the most frequent cases that doctors witness on day to day basis is of blocked fallopian tubes that are caused due to an infection in the area. These could range from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.
  2. Pelvic inflammatory disease: This is an infection of the uterus (womb), ovaries and fallopian tubes, causing tissues to stick together, forming obstructions in your tubes. Severe cases may lead to pus filled abscesses developing in the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
  3. Endometriosis: A condition where parts of your uterus lining grow in other areas besides the uterus, such as fallopian tubes or ovaries.
  4. Hydrosalpinx: Formation of fluid inside the fallopian tubes is also known as distal tubal occlusion in medical terms. It can be treated through a surgical procedure called salpingectomy. Scar tissue, adhesions and damaged tube ends that may be caused through previous injury or surgery.

Treatment options
If you’re diagnosed with obstruction of fallopian tubes, don’t lose heart. Ask your gynaecologist to recommend the right treatment protocol, that will help you to conceive soon. They will conduct a laparoscopy, which is a surgical procedure to look inside your pelvic area and at your fallopian tubes to suggest the necessary course of action. Some of the options may include the following:

  1. IVF: In vitro fertilisation is one of the most common procedures to help you conceive. It is a non-invasive technique which is safe and effective.
  2. Tubal surgery: Depending on the position and extent of the fallopian tube blockage, tubal procedures can be done using microsurgical techniques, wherein the blocked or infected portion of the tube is removed and the two healthy ends of the tube are then joined.
  3. Medication: In cases of infection, over-the-counter medication or hormones may be given to the patient.

Though being a mother is a wonderful feeling, do not consider yourself unfortunate if you can’t conceive. Think of it as an opportunity presented to you, to adopt a child and to make his or her life complete. Motherhood can come in all forms, so be ready to embrace it in any way.

Bhang Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi - भांग के फायदे और नुकसान

भांग हमारे देश में नशे के लिए काफी चर्चा में रहता है. हमारे यहां रंगों का त्योहार कहे जाने वाले होली में तो भांग का काफी उपयोग किया जाता है. उस समय भांग का उपयोग ठंडाई से लेकर बर्फी पीड़ा आदि में भी किया जाता है. यही है. इसका उपयोग हम अभी तक नशे के रूप में करते रहे हैं. लेकिन हम आपको यहां भांग के कुछ औषधीय गुणों को भी बताना बताएंगे दरअसल भांग में कन्नाबिनोइड नाम का एक तत्व पाया जाता है. यह तत्व कफ और पित्त जैसी समस्या का नाश करता है. इसके अलावा भांग पाचन शक्ति, नींद ना आने की समस्या, गले की घरघराहट आदि समस्याओं से भी निपटने में हमारी मदद करता है. तो आइए भांग के ऐसे ही कई और फायदे एवं नुकसान को जानें.

1. दमा के लिए
दमा जैसी समस्याओं से निजात पाने के लिए भी भांग का उपयोग किया जा सकता है. इसके लिए आपको भांग की लिखी हुई 125 मिलीग्राम पत्तियों के साथ 2 ग्राम 2 मिलीग्राम काली मिर्च और 2 ग्राम मिश्री मिलाकर खाने से फायदा होता है. आप चाहें तो भवन को जलाकर उसके धुंए को भी सकते हैं. इससे भी दमोह की समस्या में राहत महसूस होता है. एक तरीका यह भी हो सकता है. कि भांग के पत्तों को घी में भूनकर इसमें काली मिर्च और मिश्री मिलाकर पीस लें और उनका रोजाना सेवन करें.
2. कैंसर के उपचार में
कैंसर एक बहुत ही खतरनाक बीमारी है. लेकिन इसमें भी भांग की भूमिका इसे खत्म करने में लिखी जाती है. भांग, एचआईवी एड्स की दवाओं के निर्माण में भी काफी उपयोगी साबित होता है. क्योंकि लैब में भांग के उपयोग से कैंसर की कोशिकाओं को नष्ट करने में सफलता पाया गया है.
3. पेचिश के उपचार में
पेचिश के मरीजों को 125 मिलीग्राम भांग के चूर्ण को सोफ्ट के छह बूंद रस के साथ दिन में दो बार लेना चाहिए या भांग के 100 मिलीग्राम चूर्ण के साथ 50 मिलीग्राम पोस्ता दाने का चूर्ण मिलाकर सुबह-शाम लेने से दस्त के साथ-साथ उनकी भी समस्या खत्म होती है. यदि आप चाहें तो सीख विभाग के 125 मिलीग्राम चूर्ण शहद के साथ दिन में दो बार सेवन कर सकते हैं. इससे भी राहत मिलती है.
4. मोतियाबिंद के उपचार में
मोतियाबिंद की समस्या को दूर करने के लिए भी हम भांग का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. आपको बता दें कि हमारे संदेश ऑफ टेक्नोलॉजी ऑप्टिक नर्व के माध्यम से ही दिमाग़ तक पहुंचते हैं. ग्लूकोमा इसी नरम को नुकसान पहुंचा देता है. जिससे हमें मोती अमन की समस्या होती है. एक शोध में यह पाया गया है. कि भांग का सेवन गोलू को मोतियाबिंद के लक्षणों में कमल आता है.
5. मस्तिष्क के लिए
ब्रिटेन के एक विश्वविद्यालय के शोध में यह पाया गया है. कि भांग को हम मस्तिष्क की समस्याओं से निपटने में भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. दरअसल इस शोध के अनुसार भांग स्ट्रोक की समस्या में मस्तिष्क को नुकसान से बचाने का काम करती है. भांग का सेवन स्ट्रोक के असर को दिमाग के कुछ हिस्सों में समेट कर इसका प्रभाव कम करता है.
6. सर दर्द में भांग के फायदे
यदि आप भी अक्सर सरदर्द की समस्या से पीड़ित रहते हैं तो भांग आपके लिए उपयोगी साबित हो सकता है. 25 ग्राम पिसे हुए भांग को दूध या पानी के साथ सुबह शाम लेने से सरदर्द में राहत मिलती है और नींद की समस्या भी दूर होती है. 
7. सर्दी-बुखार में में
भांग के पिसे हुए पत्तों में गुड़ मिलाकर इसकी छोटी-छोटी गोलियां बना लें. जब भी सर्दी-बुखार हो तो आप इसमें से 1-2 गोलियां को सुबह शाम खाएं. इससे राहत मिलेगी.
8. गठिया में
जोड़ों का दर्द जिसे आम तौर पर गठिया के नाम से जानते हैं, इसमें भी भांग उपयोगी होता है. इसके लिए आपको भांग के बीज के तेल का मालिश करना होता है.
9. कान के लिए
सर्वाधिक महत्वपूर्ण अंगों में से एक है. कई बार हमें कान की परेशानियों से दो चार होना पड़ता है. इससे निपटने के लिए भांग के रस की 8 से 10 जून में कान में डालें ऐसा करने से कान के कीड़े मर जाते हैं. और कान दर्द से छुटकारा मिलता है. भांग के पत्तियों को अच्छी तरह से पीसकर सरसों के तेल में स्थित है. और इसे छानकर इस तेल को कान में डालने से भी कान के दर्द से छुटकारा मिलता है.

भांग के नुकसान

  • भांग के अधिक मात्रा में सेवन करने से शरीर में कमजोरी आती है.
  • बच्चों को भांग का सेवन करने से बचना चाहिए भांग का लगातार उपयोग करने से हम इसके आदी हो जाते हैं.
  • गर्भवती महिलाएं इसका प्रयोग बिल्कुल न करें.
  • धान की अधिक मात्रा नशे भांग की अधिक मात्रा शरीर में नशा भी चलाता है.
  • भांग का अत्यधिक सेवन पुरुष को नपुंसक चरित्रहीन और विचार ही बना सकता है. इसलिए सावधानी से इसका उपयोग करें
