I and my wife ate food licked by a dog by accidentally. Do we need to get vaccination? Over the internet I read : "The rabies virus is present in the saliva of an infected animal and is usually transmitted by a bite. Rabies may also be transmitted if infectious material (such as saliva) of the infected animal enters a wound or mucous membrane such as the eyes, nose or mouth. Here it says that it may also get transmitted by infectious material (such as saliva), enters wound, eyes, nose or mouth, that's why I am a bit worried here.

Is there anybody who is happy with their body? Definitely not! Almost everyone wants weight loss. While some want to reduce their overall weight, others are concerned about their thighs, arms, buttocks, and/or belly and get fat loss in these areas. The last couple of decades have seen a drastic change in the lifestyle of people. With more processed and refined items finding their way into each of our meals and physical activity drastically declining, the new epidemic is obesity. No germs causing it, but our foods.
Extensive research is being done to identify newer methods to manage obesity. The complicating issue is also that once lost, the chance of fat re-accumulation always exists. One such new technique is the ultrasonic lipolysis. This technique involves the use of ultrasound waves to kill the fat cells (lipo - fat, lysis - kill). This is a noninvasive method wherein localized fat deposits are reduced, thereby helping in fat loss especially in areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arm, and buttocks and resulting in further weight loss. This is an advanced technique available to patients who want to achieve weight loss and body contouring too.
How it Works?
The fat that is consumed through foods is digested but then accumulates under the skin. The accumulated fat is seen as fat globules or bubbles. These bubbles are difficult to break, but attract
more fat bubble formation and therefore fat accumulation continues over a period of time. After a detailed case history and examination, a customized programme is drawn that could be of 3 to 5 sessions spread over a period of one to two weeks.
During each session, heat waves of different wavelengths are applied to the area of fat deposition through fiber-optic lasers which start the process of fat loss. The sound energy gets converted into
mechanical energy which helps in bursting of the fat molecules. By a process known as emulsification, the larger fat cells are broken into smaller ones, almost to a liquid form, thereby reducing fat deposits.
Benefits of this include:
- Improves body contour
- Reduces body circumference
- Muscle toning and firming
- Localized body shaping
Earlier, liposuction was used, which would remove the fat leaving sagging skin behind. New research has shown that a combination of lipolysis and liposuction can produce the best results for fat loss. There is no sagging of the skin in these patients and as an added advantage, there is also skin firming indirectly when Lipolysis is done.
Studies have shown that obesity is linked to increased morbidity with higher incidence of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and paralysis. It is therefore, extremely essential that both women and men do all that is possible for weight loss and fight obesity.
Tips for a successful liver cleanse
Keep liver-friendly snacks on hand, ready to eat. You might have carrot sticks, fresh apple slices or a similar snack. The main thing is to have your snacks at hand, so that you'll be less likely to cheat on your diet by eating something you shouldn't.
Drink plenty of water. Besides helping to flush the toxins from your liver, it also makes you feel full so that it is easier to diet.
Eat a diet high in fiber. This acts as a scrubber for your digestive system, which is healthy; as well as increases your feeling of fullness.
There are those who swear by a juicing liver cleanse and others who vow that a low fat diet with plenty of olive oil will help heal your fatty liver. Ultimately, this decision will be up to you.
That being said, extreme diets such as all juice are extremely hard to maintain and stick to long enough to be effective. So, you may want to go with a less dramatic but more easily accomplished diet.
Here are some daily menu suggestions if you have fatty liver disease:
Breakfast stick with skim milk, whole grain toast with a bit of non-hydrogenated margarine, oats or oat cereal and fresh citrus juices. You can also have fresh fruit such as a banana or grapefruit. Plain yogurt with granola and berries is also a great choice. Have a cup of coffee some latest research suggests this has a beneficial effect on the liver.
Lunch you'll want to go with whole grain breads and white meats (chicken or turkey) for sandwiches. Avoid cheese or heavily marbled meats such as corned beef. Vary it, so that if you had toast for breakfast, don't have a sandwich for lunch. Home-made vegetable soup or a clear consomm is also good. You can have tossed salads, but use vinegar-based dressings simple balsamic vinegar is best, as there is no added sugar. Dessert can be a nice piece of fresh fruit. Drink water with a twist of lemon juice.
Snacks salt-free nuts, carrot sticks, celery with natural peanut butter, fresh fruit, quality dark chocolate, graham crackers.
Dinner dinner can be a larger meal, but don't go overboard. Stick with low fat meats or fish. If you bake chicken, don't leave the skin on. Ditto for fish. Almost any veggies are fine, as long as they're steamed, baked or roasted and not fried. A dinner roll is okay, but use whole wheat or whole grain. A potato as a side dish is fine a few days a week. Drink water or skim milk with your meal. Dessert might be a fresh piece of fruit, sugar free jello and fat free whipped topping.
Leave off the rich meat sauces or gravies. Don't eat cakes and cookies made with refined flours and sugar. Eat more foods that are good for cleansing the liver.
You can vary your diet from day to day so you can be more comfortable sticking with it for weeks or months without eating the same foods over and over again. The idea is eating both in moderation and in smaller serving sizes to help you lose weight and not overtax your liver.
Remember these tips when on your liver diet:
Choose foods low in fat
Eat meals low in salt
Eat more fruit and vegetables
Avoid fast food
Avoid processed foods, soft drinks, and snacks high in sugar or salt.
