My 13 years old daughter suddenly got 7 or 8 white hair. What should I do for her.

My 13 years old daughter suddenly got 7 or 8 white hair. What should I do for her.
Today even children are not out of bounds of stress and hence graying of hair starts as early as in a ten year old. But to prevent graying of hair you have to know about it a little. Hence read on to know more. Every hair follicle has melanocytes, which are hair pigmentation producing cells. When a hair strand grows out of a hair follicle, melanocytes inject melanin into the strand that makes the hair colored. Usually with age, the melanocytes slowly stop producing the melanin, thus making the hair strands turn first gray and then white. But due to some reasons like some kinds of illness or stress or lack of proper nutrition, the melanocytes might stop producing enough melanin before time. This is what causes Premature Graying of hair. The kind of illnesses that might cause premature graying of hair includes hyperthyroidism, hormonal imbalances, hypothyroidism, pernicious anemia and so on. It can also be caused by excessive damage to the hair that happens from the effect of using chemical dyes frequently, keeping the scalp unclean and effect of some high dosage drugs. Since the reasons of premature graying of hair are varied, it is suggested that for treatment you consult a good Trichologist first before trying anything for yourself. For one thing using dyes that contain ammonia to color your hair would be a mistake that would further aggravate the problem. But unfortunately that is what most people do. While there are many reasons that cause early graying of hair. Major Causes for Premature Graying of Hair are: 1. Pollution 2. Lack of proper Nutrition 3. Hyperthyroidism 4. Hormonal Imbalances 5. Hypothyroidism 6. Pernicious Anemia 7. Usage of Chemical Dyes 8. Keeping Scalp Unclean 9. Consumption of some High Dosage Drugs If you too are facing the problem of #premature #graying of #hair, make sure you consult a good Trichologist to find out the reason behind the problem. Once the reason is clear it would be much easier to find a solution too. If the only option you have is to color your #hair, make sure you use a color that contains no #ammonia. Hence using something natural like the henna would be a good idea. And if you are fortunate to still have a mane of hair that has not started to gray yet, make sure you take proper care of it.

Who Is At Risk Of Osteoporosis?

BHMS, MPH(Public Health), CNCC
Homeopath, Pathanamthitta

Osteoporosis is a condition which usually results due to a decrease in bone density. In this condition, the bones become weak and brittle. Fractures are a common result of osteoporosis. Usually, symptoms or signs do not show up until the condition progresses to its advanced stages.

Since osteoporosis is usually irreversible and incurable, preventing the fractures is considered to be extremely important.

Who is at risk of osteoporosis?
All men and women have some risk of developing'thinning' of the bones (osteoporosis) as they become older, particularly over the age of 60. As mentioned above, women are more at risk than men. The following situations may also lead to excessive bone loss and so increase your risk of developing osteoporosis. If you:

Are a woman who had the menopause before 45 years of agehave already had a bone fracture after a minor fall or bumphave a strong family history of osteoporosis. Have a body mass index (bmi) of 19 or less (that is, you are very underweight) have irregular periodshave taken, or are taking, a steroid medicine (such as prednisolone) for three months or moreare a smokerhave an alcohol intake of more than four units per daylack calcium and/or vitamin d (due to a poor diet and/or little exposure to sunlight. Are mostly inactive

Ways to treat osteporosis

Osteoporosis in women can be treated using hormone replacement therapy (hrt). The therapy makes use of either a combination of progestin and oestrogen or simply, oestrogen. However, it is possible that certain combinations have side-effects that might give rise to other medical conditions. Therefore, proper consultation with an orthopedist is an essential pre-requisite so that the condition of osteoporosis as well the side effects may be addressed before proceeding with hormone replacement therapy.

There are a number of medications that can be used which have long-term effects on osteoporosis. However, the schedule for intake of these medicines should be followed diligently. Failing to adhere to the schedule could lead to serious complications. For example, the intake of risedronate medications (prevent bone loss) should be scheduled once every month, failing which can cause ulcers in the food pipe. Raloxifene has effects which are similar to oestrogen but does not exhibit any serious side effects. Teriparatide can be used to treat osteoporosis in people who have a high risk of suffering from bone fractures.

Don't rely entirely on medication as the only treatment for your osteoporosis. These practices also are important:

Exercise. Weight-bearing physical activity and exercises that improve balance and posture can strengthen bones and reduce the chance of a fracture. The more active and fit you are as you age, the less likely you are to fall and break a bone. Good nutrition. Eat a healthy diet and make certain that you're getting enough calcium and vitamin d. Being underweight or losing a lot of weight unintentionally is associated with poorer bone health and a higher risk of fracture — even if you're taking a bisphosphonate. Quit smoking. Smoking cigarettes speed up bone loss. Limit alcohol. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Immune System Is The Body s Defense Mechanism

Immune System Is The Body s Defense Mechanism

Ever wondered why some people fall ill more often than others? part of the reason is a poor immune system. The immune system is the body’s defense mechanism against all types of infections. There are a number of ways to strengthen one’s immune system. Here are 10 tips that could help:

  • Eat probiotics: Contrary to popular belief, not all bacteria are bad. 80% of the immune system is in the gut. Keeping gut bacteria healthy can help boost the immune system. An easy way to do this is to have probiotics regularly. This could be in the form of probiotic supplements or probiotic food like curd.
  • Eat enough: Many people cut back on the food being eaten in an effort to lose weight. While a low calorific intake can help you lose weight, this is not good weight loss. Not eating enough can reduce your energy levels and keep antibodies from reaching all the parts of the body.
  • Sleep well: 8-10 hours of sleep every night is essential for a good immune system. This helps the body rejuvenate itself and improves the immune system’s ability to fight against infections.
  • Drink some soup: Stock or broth made from animal bones can act as great sources of glutamine. This amino acid powers the immune system. Glutamine is also available in the form of supplemental tablets and powders.
  • Get some sun: Exposing the body to sun light is the easiest way to replenish vitamin d levels. Another way to get your daily amount of vitamin d is through cod liver oil capsules.
  • Drink plenty of water: Water not only helps hydrate the body, it also flushes toxins form the body. Ideally, one should drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.
  • Quit sugar: Sugar increases the calorific intake but provides no nourishment. For this reason, these calories are also known as empty calories. Quitting sugar can help improve your overall health and boost the immune system.
  • Quit alcohol: Like sugar, alcohol does not provide any nourishment to the body. Instead, it impairs the immune system’s ability to function and increases the risk of infections. Hence, it is best to quit alcohol.
  • Use herbs and spices: Herbs and spices in your kitchen not only add flavour to your food but can also help strengthen the immune system. The most important herbs for the immune system include garlic, ginger, pepper and onions.
  • Exercise: Lastly, exercise regularly. Exercise has many benefits including weight management, improved blood circulation and better immunity. If you do not have the time for an extensive workout, try incorporating exercise into your daily routine. For example, take the stairs instead of the elevator.

The first line of treatment is usually weight loss through a combination of a healthy diet and exercise. Losing weight addresses the conditions that contribute to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Ideally, a loss of 10 percent of body weight is desirable, but improvement in risk factors can become apparent if you lose even three to five percent of your starting weight. Weight-loss surgery is also an option for those who need to lose a great deal of weight.

The Rh factor, also called the Rhesus factor, is a protein found on the surface of red blood cells. People with Rh-positive blood, about 85 percent of the U.S. Population, have this protein; those with Rh-negative blood do not. If both you and your partner both have Rh-negative blood, there's no need to worry because you'll have an Rh-negative baby. But if you are Rh negative and your partner is Rh positive, your baby could be either positive or negative. A potentially dangerous condition, called Rh Disease, can result when the mother is Rh negative and the baby is Rh positive. Similar to an autoimmune condition, Rh disease occurs when the Rh-negative mother's body detects Rh factor in the baby's blood and develops antibodies to protect itself. (The body sees the Rh factor as an infection.) The antibodies cross the placenta to fight the Rh-positive cells in the baby's body. As the antibodies destroy the red blood cells, the baby becomes anemic, which can lead to complications like jaundice, heart failure, organ enlargement and possibly death. The risk of Rh disease during a first pregnancy is low, but it becomes a problem during future pregnancies with other Rh-positive babies. That's because the risk of an attack increases any time your blood mixes with your baby's blood. This can happen during an amniocentesisor a C-section, but also during delivery as the baby exits the body and the placenta is delivered. New research reviewed by Paula Grantham, RN, BSN, and published by the University of Rochester Medical Center suggests that a Rh-negative woman may not always have trouble during her first pregnancy, but she can build a sensitization for subsequent pregnancies. This means that while you may actually carry and deliver a Rhesus-positive baby full term without your body attacking it, your system might become "triggered" so that future pregnancies will likely require treatment in order to prevent your body from attacking the baby. However, treating a woman with Rh immunoglobulin, or RhoGAM, during her first pregnancy can prevent her body from developing antibodies that could affect her future pregnancies. Because doctors generally don't test the blood type of the baby before birth, Rh-negative moms will require treatment regardless of whether the child is positive or negative. Treatment involves an injection of RhoGAM, which prevents your blood from developing antibodies, around week 27 of your first pregnancy and another injection after the baby is delivered. Some doctors will administer the post-delivery RhoGAM injection only if the baby tests Rh positive, and other doctors give the injection even if the baby tests negative.
