Diet in Pregnancy

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Diet in Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman's life when there is an added focus to take care of yourself and your unborn child. The adage 'you are what you eat' takes on a whole new meaning during this period as it becomes the soon to be mother's responsibility to pack in extra nutrition to nourish her growing bump. Doctors often add in a dose of vitamins to ensure that the both mother and child are well nourished. But beyond that, the food choices you make will maintain a healthy weight gain for you and your baby and eventually even help when you want to shed the extra weight after your child is born.

Here are some tips to have a perfect diet during your pregnancy

  1. Load up on the good stuff: Even if you've always been eating healthy, it is time to crank things up a notch and include more proteins, vitamins, minerals especially folic acid and iron and some extra calories for energy and increase it as you progress in your pregnancy. But eating to get more nutrients doesn't have to mean eating more in general. If you are already at a healthy weight, then you don't need extra calories in the first trimester. In the second trimester, you need about 340 extra calories a day and about 450 extra calories a day in the third trimester. The numbers will change if you are underweight or overweight.
  2. Say no to some: During pregnancy, give a skip to food items like raw seafood and undercooked meat and poultry. This could lead to potentially dangerous infections. Other foods to steer clear from include unpasteurized milk and soft cheese. All of these are possible sources of bacteria that can be harmful to an unborn child. It is always good to give your fruits and veggies a good extra wash, as always. Try to avoid the known culprits like popular local fruits that may be laden with artificial ripeners. Also avoid food with excess oil or preservatives. You will also have to say a complete no to alcohol or smoking during this period. While most sites suggest that you also ditch your caffeine fix, you can best keep it less than 200 mg or 12 ounces in a day. Stick to decaffeinated tea and sodas when possible. Some other foods that have to be avoided during pregnancy are packaged food, cold drinks, preserved food items as they contain preservatives, which are harmful. Also, chinese food should be avoided as it contains monosodium glutamate, which is again harmful due to teratogenic chemical.
  3. Diet a big no: Another big no during pregnancy is dieting or controlling the intake of food to lose weight. Pregnancy is the time you actually, for once, get to legally gain weight and be happy about. Don't mess up your natural system with forced diets.
  4. Keep the food coming: Pregnancy is the time for food craving at all odd hours and the time to give into them without an ounce of guilt! If you are dealing with nausea and food aversion, try to stick to small meals throughout the day. Replace the chips with carrot sticks and the pizza slice with soup. If that sweet tooth starts acting up, give it a frozen fruit dessert or shake.

It is water retention before delayed periods as you are sure about pregnancy test being negative. Take less salt and fats as these retain water, take less packed foods as salt is a preservative and retains water in body. Drink more water to flush out toxins from the system by urinating more, drink green tea, lemon water as these are natural substances to counter sodium in salt. Take more potassium through amla-raw & citrus fruits like oranges & kinoo & lemons-no side effects of this home remedy. Do write back. Do not put load on legs by walking more, use all the 4 limbs -2 arms & 2 legs.

Jamalgota Ke Fayde Aur Nuksan In Hindi - जमालगोटा के फायदे और नुकसान

वानस्पतिक नाम क्रोटन टिग्लियम वाली, जमालगोटा के फायदों और नुकसान दोनों ही ज्यादा हैं. उत्तर-पूर्व और दक्षिण भारतीय राज्यों में पाया जाने वाला जमालगोटा के पेड़ की ऊंचाई 15-20 फीट होती है. इसके फुल के अन्दर लाल-भूरे रंग का जो तेल जैसा पदार्थ होता है उसका औषधीय महत्व काफी ज्यादा है. जमालगोटा की तासीर गर्म होती है इससे शरीर में पित्त बढ़ता है और काफ पतला होता है. आइए जमालगोटा के लाभ और हानि को विस्तारपूर्वक समझें.

1. आंत के लिए
शरीर के महत्वपूर्ण अंगों में से एक आंत में कई बार कीड़े हो जाते हैं. आंत के इन कीड़ों को भगाने के लिए 20 मिलीग्राम जमालगोटा के बीज को पानी के साथ लेने से आंत के कीड़े ख़त्म होते हैं.
2. कब्ज में
कब्ज से पीड़ित मरीज को यदि सावधानीपूर्वक जमालगोटा दिया जाए तो उसे काफी आराम मिलता है. इसके लिए आपको जमालगोटा के बीज का पाउडर 20-40 मिलीग्राम नियमित रूप से देना होता है. इससे गंभीर कब्ज का इलाज भी संभव है.
3. बालों के लिए
जमालगोटा का प्रयोग बालों की समस्याओं को दूर करने के लिए भी किया जाता है. इसके शुद्ध बीजों का पेस्ट बनाकर सर में लगाने से गंजापन में सुधार होता है. यानी बालों का झड़ना रोकने में जमालगोटा काफी उपयोगी है.
4. पीलिया में
जमालगोटा की जड़ों के बाहरी छाल को गुड़ के साथ लेने से ऐसा माना जाता है कि इससे पित्त का स्त्राव बढ़ता है. इसे सफ़ेद मल को कम करने और पीलिया के उपचार में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है.
5. जोड़ों के दर्द में
जोड़ों का दर्द जिसे गठिया भी कहते हैं, इसके इलाज के लिए भी जमालगोटा का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. जमालगोटा के बीजों से निकला तेल सूजन, फेफड़े के रोगों, गठिया और क्रोनिक ब्रोंकाइटीस आदि पर लागने से राहत मिलती है.
6. सांप काटने पर
सांप काटने के इलाज के रूप में भी जमालगोटा का उपयोग किया जाता है. इसके बीज के पेस्ट में नींबू का रस मिलाकर दिया जात्ता है. इसके अलावा एक उपाय और है कि जमालगोटा के 100 मिलीग्राम पाउडर में काली मिर्च को पीसकर मिलकर इसे पानी के साथ पिने से उल्टी होकर जहर निकल जाता है.
7. स्तंभन में
जमालगोटा से होने वाले विभिन्न लाभों में से एक स्तंभन दोष में इससे होने वाला लाभ भी है. जमालगोटा के बीज का पेस्ट बनाकर पनील क्षेत्र में लगाने से स्तंभन दोष में राहत मिलता है.

10. बवासीर में
जमालगोटा के जड़ों का पाउडर और छाछ के पेस्ट का उपयोग बाहरी बवासीर के ऊपर करने से बवासीर सिकुड़कर सूखने लगता है. इससे सुजन में कमी आती है और मरीज राहत महसूस करता है.
11. जमालगोटा के अन्य फायदे
कफ रोगों के फायदेमंद जमालगोटा का लाभ पाचन और अवशोषण को सही करने में भी देखा गया है. इसके अलावा ये हमारा खून भी साफ़ करता है. आपको बता दें की पित्त के असंतुलित होने पर स्वाद में कड़वा लगने वाले पदार्थों का सेवन नहीं करना चाहिए.

Guide To Post Delivery Workout

M.R.C.O.G. (LONDON) Gold Medalist, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology , MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Guide To Post Delivery Workout

Exercise after pregnancy can make a woman feel at her best. It can help her to lose extra pounds specifically when it is combined with reduced intake of calories. It will also boost her level of energy and relieve stress along with strengthening and toning abdominal muscles. Exercising regularly will also set a positive example for your baby so that he or she can imbibe the same and include it in their regime from an early childhood.

Workout and Breast-feeding: Are they related?

Exercise is not deemed to have any negative effects on either breast milk composition or volume. It also doesn’t affect the growth and development of a nursing baby. Though some researchers report that high-intensity weight loss training may cause accumulation of lactic acid in the breast milk causing a sour taste, but such instances are very rare and don’t happen with regular free hand to moderate exercise.

If you are willing to indulge in vigorous exercise during the first few months of feeding your baby, you can feed him or her before exercising or pumping the milk before workout and feed it afterwards. Alternatively, you can take a shower after the workout and express a few drops of milk before feeding your baby.

When is the right time to start a workout?

If you had experienced an uncomplicated normal delivery, it is particularly safe to start exercising after a few days of giving birth or as soon as your body feels ready. If you had a complicated birth, or a C-section or an extensive vaginal repair, you should seek advice from a gynaecologist about the ideal time to start a workout program.

Activities that you may start with:

Every pregnancy and delivery are different, so check with your doctor before engaging in any workout program after giving birth. If you experience any heavy bleeding, excessive soreness, headaches, or other unusual symptoms during or right after exercising, stop immediately and call your doctor for advice. Here are some moves that will help you get your body ready for regular exercise.

  1. Walking: It may not sound like much of a workout, but walking is one of the simplest ways to ease into a fitness routine after giving birth.
  2. Deep Belly Breathing With Abdominal Contraction: This exercise is so easy you can do it an hour after giving birth. It helps relax muscles, and it starts the process of strengthening and toning your abs and belly.
  3. Head Lifts, Shoulder Lifts, and Curl-Ups: These three movements help strengthen back muscles. They also tone the tummy and abs and burn calories.
  4. Kegels: This classic exercise will help you tone bladder muscles and help reduce risks of incontinence associated with childbirth. The more kegels you do, and the longer you hold them, the better control you will have over those leaks caused by sneezing, laughing, or picking up your baby. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

All About Esophagectomy

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Delhi
All About Esophagectomy

The surgical procedure to remove the oesophagus (the tube between your stomach and mouth), partially or completely, and reconstruct it by using a section of the large intestine or stomach is called esophagectomy.

Esophagectomy is commonly used to treat oesophageal cancer.


Early-stage oesophageal cancer is frequently treated with an esophagectomy. Other than that, esophagectomy is also performed to treat oesophageal dysplasia (a condition in which cells in the oesophageal lining are precancerous or likely to develop cancer if not promptly treated).

Esophagectomy is commonly performed when cancer has spread to the stomach, lymph nodes or associated organs.

Some other conditions which require esophagectomy include:

  1. Oesophageal trauma.

  2. Swallowing of cell-damaging, or caustic agents such as lye.

  3. Problematic stomach disorders that make the passage of food to the stomach difficult.

  4. A previously performed esophagectomy was unsuccessful.


There are three ways a surgeon may perform an esophagectomy, which include:

  • Transthoracic Esophagectomy (TTE)

In this type of procedure, the incision is made on the chest. A TTE is mostly used to treat the following conditions:

    • Cancer present only in two-thirds of the oesophagus

    • Barrett’s oesophagus (Abnormal cell transformation in the lower oesophagus)

    • Damage to the oesophagus by swallowing a caustic agent

    • Reflux esophagitis (stomach acids return to the oesophagus) complications

  • Transhiatal Esophagectomy (THE)

In THE, the incision is made from the end of the breastbone to the bellybutton. THE is performed for the following conditions:

    • To remove the cancerous oesophagus

    • To tighten or narrow the oesophagus in order to make swallowing easier

    • To fix issues in the nervous system

    • To repair frequent gastroesophageal reflux

    • Correct a hole in the oesophagus caused by any caustic agent

  • En Bloc Esophagectomy

In this procedure, the oesophagus, part of the stomach and all the lymph nodes in the abdomen and chest are removed. The incisions are made in the abdomen, chest and neck; the stomach will be reshaped and brought up to the chest to put back the oesophagus.

Potentially curable tumours are treated by en bloc esophagectomy.


Recovery time of esophagectomy is three weeks approximately. You are allowed to go back to your regular diet after a month. You might find that you are eating smaller portions as you stomach size is reduced. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Treat Menopausal Symptoms With Homeopathy

Treat Menopausal Symptoms With Homeopathy

Menopause is never an easy time in a woman’s life. Between all the hormonal changes and everything else, things can get more than a little tough to deal with. In fact, doctors prescribe medicines which are full of chemicals and are not of much help. So, why not try homeopathy?

When a woman is going through menopause, the symptoms expected can vary, but generally include depression which is coupled with mood swings along with some anxiety and weight gain. In addition to these symptoms, there may be a loss of libido, and this can really drive a wedge in the intimacy of the woman’s relationship with her partner. Now, all these symptoms may affect a woman, but at the same time it does not necessarily mean that a woman’s life is affected to a large extent on account of menopause.

When it comes to solutions then certainly, homeopathy has for the symptoms of menopause, it is to be noted that they are free from any untoward side effects. If a woman going through menopause is suffering from depression, the homeopathic medicine ignatia is most likely to be recommended. Not only is depression reduced but the swings or the volatility in the mood of a woman is also brought under control to a large extent. However, it is best to consult a specialized homeopath regarding this.

Due to bodily changes which occur around this time, many women who are menopausal end up going through a period of weight gain. Gaining excess weight may cause loss of self-image and low self-confidence. Graphites are the answer homeopathy has to address an issue such as this one.

Sepia is a medicine which can help in battling the irritability a woman may be prone to during the menopause period. The effects of this all natural medicine are pretty great! Another medicine which is known as a result of its super beneficial impact is calcarea carb. This is of great use when a menopausal woman has osteoporosis as well. It must be kept in mind that menopause can lead to other conditions as well.

Health Benefits Of Soybean Oil

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Health Benefits Of Soybean Oil

Cholesterol control: As mentioned above, the good balance of fatty acids contained in soybean oil means that the body can get the important and necessary fatty acids in their diet, including those which regulate cholesterol levels. Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce dangerous cholesterol levels and counteract the negative types. Furthermore, the other fatty acids like stearic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acid are also found in balanced quantities. The fatty acid composition of soybean oil, as well as the powerful plant sterols, such as β-sitosterol can actually cause a reduction in cholesterol storage in the gut by 10-15% – not what you normally expect to hear from a “fatty” acid! Basically, soybean oil can seriously decrease you chance of atherosclerosis and other heart conditions, such as heart attacks and strokes.

Cognitive impact: Alzheimer’s disease is a terrible affliction that affects millions of people around the world. It results in the cognitive deterioration of a person’s brain as neural connection fail and die, thereby making everything from remembering the past to performing simple tasks a challenge. However, soybean oil has an impressively high level of vitamin k, which has been consistently connected with improving the symptoms of alzheimer’s, and even reversing the effects in some cases. The vitamin k acts as an antioxidant against free radicals, keeping them from damaging the neural cells.

Bone health: Another important function of vitamin k is its osteotrophic potential, which means that it can stimulate the regrowth or increased healing of bone. While this is often associated with calcium, vitamin k, of which soybeans has a lot, can also stimulate bone development in a very positive way, so make sure to switch to soybean oil if you want to prevent certain conditions like osteoporosis, which is often a natural result of the aging process.

Eye and skin health: Omega-3 fatty acids, which make up 7% of the total fatty acid content in soybean oil, are integral to protecting the cardiovascular system in the role of scraping our “bad” cholesterol, but it also protects cell membranes. This includes the very fragile and dangerous areas of the skin and eyes, both of which are common entrance points for bacteria and other foreign materials. These omega-3s also promote healthier vision by acting as antioxidants and neutralizing free radicals that can cause macular degeneration and cataracts.

Antioxidant potential: The high vitamin e content in soybean oil also acts as a powerful antioxidant while similarly protecting the skin from the damage of fre radicals. Vitamin e is directly associated with improving the appearance of blemishes, reducing acne scarring, protecting the skin against sunburn, and stimulating the regrowth of new skin cells to promote healing. Vitamin e is also associated with general antioxidant activity in the rest of the body, which boosts the immune system and helps to eliminate free radicals that cause certain conditions like cancer, premature aging, cognitive disorders and heart diseases.

A final word of caution: Remember, it may be a healthier form of vegetable oil, but it is still somewhat high in omega-6 fatty acids. Although this is “essential”, it is still a problem if it is not evenly balanced with more foods with omega-3 fatty acid content. There are still calories involved if you are worried about obesity. Furthermore, soybeans are closely related to peanuts, so with the increasing numbers of peanut allergies around the world, be careful about anyone with peanut allergies before cooking with soybean oil. Besides that, enjoy and happy cooking!
