My wife is pregnant,baby conceived in jan 2016. She's having pain in her breast what should we do.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
My wife is pregnant,baby conceived in jan 2016. She's having pain in her breast what should we do.
Breast pain after delivery can be due to many possibilities like 1. The letdown reflex the letdown reflex, also called the milk ejection reflex, is set off by the hormone oxytocin. It stimulates the muscle cells in your breasts to squeeze out milk. Oxytocin is released whenever your baby feeds in the first few days after she's born. Later on, just thinking about feeding your baby can trigger this hormone release. You may even find that your breasts leak when this happens. Different women feel the letdown reflex in different ways. You may feel: (a) slight tingling, or pins and needles (b) immense pressure and slight pain, ache or discomfort (c) nothing at al as time goes by, and as you get used to breastfeeding, you'll probably become less and less aware of this. 2. Producing too much milksome mums who produce lots of milk have painful twinges deep in their breasts during feeds. This painful letdown reflex usually fades in the first three months of breastfeeding. If your baby latches on well each time she feeds, your milk supply should quickly settle down to match her needs. 3. Engorgement in the first few days after your baby is born, your breasts flood with milk, and more blood flows to your breasts, making the tissues swell. This may lead to your breasts becoming engorged and feeling hot and painful. The milk-producing cells in your breasts become swollen, making letdown difficult. Your breasts may also look red and shiny. This is perfectly normal. It's your body's way of making sure your new baby has plenty of milk. Once your baby starts feeding regularly, and latching on well, your breasts will regulate the amount of milk that's produced, and the discomfort should pass. If it doesn't, see your midwife, health visitor, or a breastfeeding specialist as soon as possible. 4. Mastitis if an area of your breast becomes inflamed, this can mean you have a painful condition called mastitis. It happens when excess milk is forced out of a duct and into your breast tissue. Your breast will be red and tender, and you will feel feverish. You can keep breastfeeding your baby, but see your doctor straight away for treatment. What to do 1. If your breasts are engorged, your baby may not be able to suckle fully. You may need to start with gentle hand expressing or a breast pump until your baby is able to draw your breast comfortably into her mouth. Try using warm, damp flannels on your breasts before a feed to help the milk to flow. After feeding or expressing you could use cold damp flannels, cold gel packs or cold, green or white cabbage leaves on your breasts. Cabbage leaves may reduce the swelling, though there isn't much firm evidence for this. A strong letdown from over-full breasts can also make feeding difficult. If your baby comes off your breast spluttering from too much milk, try this technique: 2. Put your baby to your breast, as usual. 3. When you feel your milk let down, gently break the suction and catch the initial spurt in a towel. 4. Let your baby latch on again when the flow slows down a bit. The more often your baby latches on well, the more quickly your supply will settle down and you will become more comfortable. If your breast pain does not go away within a few days, then meet your gynecologist to find for other causes like mastitis.

May I know the reasons for the cause of ovarian cyst and could you please tell me the precautions to be taken?

MBBS

A follicle develops in each lady every month in the ovary. It ruptures in the middle of the cycle and releases egg. If by any reason it fails to rupture it becomes cyst. It might rupture on its own in the next cycle. If not some medicines are required. Lead a healthy active life,

Since you have pcod and tight introitus, so it may take time to conceive naturally, you can undergo cervical dilatation for to correct introitus. Also start doing regular exercise for pcod and take regular nutritious diet including fruits, green vegetables, and low fat dairy products, it will increase your chances of conceiving.

Hello lybrate-user. Your doctor has given you the appropriate medicine .this will balance the hormone level in your body and thus will regularise your periods. Taking I pill this much frequently can cause hormonal imbalance in your body .so please avoid taking this pill regularly. You can switch to these medicines which your doctor has given you for contraception. Moreover you can use other methods of contraception also like IUCD etc.

I am having heavy bleeding on my periods. In this case will I become pregnant?

MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If your periods are regular then heavy bleeding during periods alone should not be a problem. However get a sonography to rule out any pelvic pathology.

संतुलित भोजन
स्वस्थ शरीर के लिए संतुलित भोजन आवश्यक है जो हमें ऊर्जा प्रदान करे और वृद्धि में सहायक हो तथा बिमारिओं से बचाये.
हमारे भोजन की पूर्ण ऊर्जा की मात्रा निम्नलिखित स्रोतों से आती है;
कार्बोहायड्रेट ५५-६० %
वसा ३० %
प्रोटीन १०-१५ %
कार्बोहायड्रेट
कार्बोहायड्रेट कार्बन,हाइड्रोजन और ऑक्सीजन से मिलकर बनते है.तथा हमें ऊर्जा प्रदान करते है.ये दो प्रकार के होते हैं- सरल और काम्प्लेक्स(गरिष्ठ).सरल आसानी से पांच जाते हैं और गरिष्ठ धीरे धीरे पचते है तथा ताकत और स्टैमिना देते हैं. हमारी रोजाना की मात्रा में से लगभग ५५ % ऊर्जा काम्प्लेक्स कार्बोहायड्रेट जैसे साबुत अनाज, आलू और अन्य सब्जियों से मिलने चाहिए.जिससे अन्य पोषक तत्त्व भी भोजन से प्राप्त हो सके.जैसे गेहूं के आते से बनी ब्रेड में मिनरल जैसे कैल्शियम आयरन ,विटामिन और रेशा अधिक मात्र में मिलेगा २ ब्रेड से लगभग १३० कैलोरी मिलती है जो एक सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक की कैलोरी के बराबर होती है जबकि इससे हमें अन्य कोई पोषक तत्त्व नहीं मिलते है.
चीनी एक सरल परिष्कृत (रिफाइंड) कार्बोहायड्रेट है जो मात्र ऊर्जा ही प्रदान करती है तथा प्रोसेस्ड फूड्स जैसे केक, चॉकलेट, बिस्किट्स आदि में पाई जाती है.

So young boy, is the diagnosis of asthma made by your doctor or you are just guessing yourself that you have asthma? if it is a clinical diagnosis made by a doctor, then the doctor might have also discussed with you the way to get rid of asthma. Asthma is a disease of lungs in which there is no short method of getting it cured. There are chances of getting it cured only when it can be kept under a good control for long time (may be years), so the goal in asthma should be to keep it under control and not curing it within a short time (which is usually not possible)

Flax Seeds (Alsi) - 6 Health Benefits You Never Knew!

Flax Seeds (Alsi) - 6 Health Benefits You Never Knew!

Flax seeds are one of the world’s oldest super foods. They can improve your skin and hair health, keep your heart healthy, fight cancer, lower cholesterol and help you lose weight. Yet, they hardly look impressive. Small and brown with no smell, nobody can guess that they are such reservoirs of nutrients invaluable for our health and well-being.

Nutrient profile

  1. Flax seeds are the richest sources of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the world!
  2. They are the number one source of lignans in our diets.
  3. They are also storehouses of minerals like manganese, magnesium as well as fibre, protein and vitamin B1.

Health benefits of flax seeds

  1. Heart healthy: Omega-3 essential fatty acids are known as 'good' fats that have been shown to have a number of heart healthy effects. Flax seeds can naturally reduce cholesterol levels. This happens because the high fibre content in flax traps cholesterol in the digestive tract so it doesn’t get absorbed. They also prevent hardening of arteries due to deposition of plaque and treat heart arrhythmias.
  2. Super digestive aids: Fibre in flax seeds helps delay the passage of food through the GI tract. This increases nutrient absorption in the small intestine. Fibre also supports colon detoxification, fat loss and reduces sugar cravings.
  3. Natural hormones: Lignans are very important plant hormones as well as antioxidants. The lignans in flax have estrogenic properties. After menopause, estrogen levels in women drop to abysmal levels. Use of flax seeds can shore–up estrogen levels and provide protection for bones, heart and other organs. These provide benefits like anti-ageing, hormone balancing and health of body cells. Studies also show that flax can reduce hot flashes experienced during menopause by half. Lignans are also known for their anti-viral and antibacterial properties,
  4. Flaxseeds are Gluten-free: Most grains we consume are gluten rich like wheat. Flax, on the other hand, is low in gluten. This means that flax is anti- inflammatory and reduces inflammation in any part of our bodies. People suffering from celiac disease and auto-immune diseases can thus include flax in their diet without a problem.
  5. Most Magnesium-rich food in the world: Magnesium helps in keeping our muscles healthy and its deficiency is the biggest reason for sore muscles, fatigue and cramps.
  6. Cancer fighter extraordinaire: In animal studies, the plant Omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed, called ALA, has been shown to inhibit tumour incidence and growth. Flax seeds is also very effective against breast cancer. 

Flaxseed is by no means a magic bullet against every disease known to man, but it comes close to being one. If you are thinking of reaping its benefits, use flax seeds as much possible and add them in your curries, soups, smoothies or just roast and eat to experience the flax miracle.

Homeopathy in Pregnancy

DHB
Homeopath, Sagar
Homeopathy in Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a major physiological process in a woman's body that increases the level of stress on both your body and immune system. Homeopathy is the most ideal form of medication that enables you to deal with the symptoms and complications of pregnancy. Homeopathic treatment has proven to be effective in treating severe ailments, including morning sickness, headaches, digestive ailments, muscle aches and other discomforts which are common in pregnancy. The usage of Homeopathic medicines during pregnancy is completely safe as it uses small amounts of active ingredients that enhance the natural abilities of your body to heal and cause general improvement.

When compared to the other conventional drugs, Homeopathy has no side effects and is non-addictive, hence safe.

Here are the common homeopathy medications which are used in pregnancy:

  1. Aconite: This remedy calms extreme anxiety which is common in pregnancy
  2. Arnica: This remedy heals the soft tissue damage and reduces swelling and bruising caused during the birth. 
  3. Bellis Perennis: This remedy is used when Arnica does not alleviate discomfort and it is considered to work effectively for sores and bruises, easing pelvic pain or abdominal tissue damage.
  4. Caulophyllum: This remedy helps to tone up and strengthen the uterus and prepares the cervix for the birth. It is also used to induce contractions during child birth.
  5. Cimicifuga: It is similar in action to Caulophyllum with a slight difference of producing coordinated contractions while alleviating the anxiety at the same time.
  6. Gelsemium: Works excellently well for dysfunctional labor with failure to progress. This also helps calm anxiety that is felt while anticipating the birth. 
  7. Hypericum: This remedy soothes nerve pains which are usually common after a caesarian section or perineal tears and episiotomy. 
  8. Kali Carbonicum: It eases the pain of contractions that is mainly felt in the back, especially in case of posterior positioned babies. 
  9. Nux Vomica: Eases the contractions which are mainly felt in the back, extending to the buttocks and thighs.
  10. Staphysagria: This enhances the healing process of incisions or lacerated injury. It alleviates mood swings, feelings of anger, resentment, disappointment which are generally felt by the mother post birth.

Homeopathy is a safer during and after child birth, but no medication should be taken without consulting your doctor.
