Masturbation or Sex, which is Better?

Sexologist, Delhi
Masturbation or Sex, which is Better?

The act of pleasuring oneself is one topic, which has always been questioned by the society at large, but in reality it offers a number of benefits. Masturbation refers to the act of inducing sexual arousal and deriving pleasure from it by stimulating the genitals. This may be done using your own hands, sex toys, fingers or grouping together the effect of these. Mutual masturbation among partners is also a fairly common phenomenon. There are varied opinions on the topic, whether actual sexual penetration gives more pleasure or masturbation. Read on to find out what effect each has on your body and which one is more preferred by most people.

  1. Health benefits: Studies reveal that engaging in sexual intercourse is associated with a lot of health benefits like controlling your blood pressure level, keeping the prostrate and heart healthy for men, acting as a pain reliever etc. Masturbating may not affect your health in the way sex does, but it certainly has a different set of benefits, which includes preventing cancer, boosting immunity, reducing risks of premature ejaculation etc. 
  2. Associated risks: Sexual intercourse often comes with various risks like STDs, if your partner is infected or chance of an unwanted conception, if unsafe sex is practised. Masturbation has comparatively lower health risks than sex, though it is not entirely free from drawbacks. You can get skin irritations and in rare cases, even penile fractures due to excessive masturbation. 
  3. Effect on relationship: The quality and frequency of the sexual intercourse you have with your partner has a direct effect on your relationship. However, masturbation mostly does not involve your partner's participation and so doesn't visibly have a reflection on your relationship. 
  4. Role in knowing your sexual preferences: In case of both men and women, masturbation helps people to identify their sexual preferences and things which give them greater pleasure. This usually leads to a more satisfying sex life and is considered to be easier than figuring out what pleases you while having sex. 

Even after considering the above points, which one (either sex or masturbation) gives you more pleasure, completely depends on your personal preferences. If you wish to discuss about any specific sexual problem, you can consult a specilized sexologist and ask a free question.

लहसुन के औषधीय गुण :

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
लहसुन के औषधीय गुण :

आयुर्वेद ग्रंथ 'भावप्रकाश' कहता है कि 'लहसुन वृष्य स्निग्ध, ऊष्णवीर्य, पाचक,सारक,रस विपाक में कटु तथा मधुर रस युक्त, तीक्ष्ण भग्नसंधानक (टूटी हड्डी जोड़ने वाला), पित्त एवं रक्तवर्धक, शरीर में बल, मेधाशक्ति तथा आँखों के लिए हितकर रसायन है। यह हृदय रोग, जीर्ण रोग (ज्वरादि), कटिशूल, मल एवं वातादिक की विबंधता, अरुचि, काम, क्रोध, अर्श, कुष्ठ, वायु, श्वांस की तकलीफ तथा कफ नष्टकारी है।

मेहनतकश किसान-मजदूर तो लहसुन की चटनी, रोटी खाकर स्वस्थ और कर्मठ बने रहते हैं। यह कैंसर से लड़ने में खास उपयोगी है क्योंकि यह खाने -पीने की चीजों या प्रदूषण से शरीर में बनने वाले नाइट्रोसेमाइन के असर को कम करता है। हृदय रोग समेत कई अन्य रोगों में भी यह सुरक्षा कवच बन सकता है। इसे पूरे शरीर के लिए एक शक्तिशाली टॉनिक बताया गया है। पिछले महीने एनालिटिकल बायोकेमिस्ट्री पत्रिका में छपी रिपोर्ट में कहा गया कि नाइट्रोसेमाइन का संबंध कैंसर से होता है। ज्यादातर सब्जियों, डब्बाबंद आहार और उद्योग से निकलने वाले कचरे में नाइट्रेट की मात्रा होती है। करीब 20 प्रतिशत नाइट्रेट शरीर में जाकर नाइट्रोसेमाइन में बदल जाता है। इस अध्ययन में शामिल लोगों को, एक हफ्ते तब बिना नाइट्रेट और लहसुन वाला भोजन दिया गया। इसके बाद उन्हें सोडियम नाइट्रेट की खुराक इस प्रकार दी गई जिससे वह टॉक्सिक में न बदले। इसके बावजूद, पेशाब की जांच में, इसके टॉक्सिक में बदलने की प्रक्रिया का पता लगा। इसके बाद स्टडी में शामिल लोगों के एक ग्रुप का इलाज लहसुन के डोज से किया गया। उन्हें एक, तीन या पांच ग्राम ताजा लहसुन या तीन ग्राम लहसुन का रस दिया गया। दूसरे ग्रुप को 500 मिली ग्राम एस्कॉर्बिक एसिड या विटामिन-सी दिया गया। दोनों समूहों को सात दिन तक ये खुराक दी गई और हर दूसरे दिन उनके पेशाब के नमूने लिए गए। जांच से स्पष्ट हुआ कि लहसुन का सेवन करने वालों में नाइट्रोसेमाइन की मात्रा कम थी। 'एनल्स ऑफ इंटरनल मेडिसिन' और 'जर्नल ऑफ न्यूट्रीशन' के अध्ययन का भी निष्कर्ष है कि लहसुन सेवन से कोलेस्ट्रॉल में 10 फीसदी तक की गिरावट हो सकती है और हर हफ्ते सप्ताह लहसुन के पाँच दाने खाने से कैंसर का खतरा 30 से 40 फीसदी कम हो जाता है। वस्तुतः,षडरस अर्थात् भोजन के 6 रसों में, "अम्ल रस" को छोड़,शेष पाँच रस लहसुन में सदैव विद्यमान रहते हैं। आज षडरस आहार दुर्लभ हो चला है। लहसुन उसकी पूर्ति के लिए बहुत सस्ता, सुलभ विकल्प है। इसीलिए,लहसुन को गरीबों का 'मकरध्वज' कहा जाता है क्योंकि इसके लगातार प्रयोग से मनुष्य का स्वास्थ्य उत्तम रहता है।

औषधीय गुणः
मलेरिया के रोगी को भोजन से पहले तिल के तेल में भुना लहसुन खिलाना चाहिए। लहसुन का तेल सवेरे निराहार पानी के साथ लेने से, कितनी ही पुरानी खाँसी हो, फायदा होता है। बिच्छू के काटे स्थान पर डंक साफकर लहसुन और अमचूर पीसकर लगाने से जहर उतर जाता है। डंक ग्रस्त भाग पर पिसी चटनी भी लगाएँ। इन्फ्लूएंजा में लहसुन का रस पानी में मिलाकर चार-चार घंटे बाद दें। इसके सेवन से रक्त में थक्का बनने की प्रवृत्ति बहुत कम हो जाती है, जिससे हार्ट अटैक का खतरा कम हो जाता है। लहसुन की गंध से मच्छर भी दूर भागते हैं।यह उच्च रक्तचाप में भी काफी लाभदायक माना गया है। जी मचलने पर लहसुन की कलियाँ चबाना या लहसुनादि वटी चूसना फायदेमंद होता है। रोगाणुनाशक क्षमता होने के कारण लहसुन के एक भाग रस में तीन भाग पानी मिलाकर इसका इस्तेमाल घाव धोने के लिए किया जाता है। कुनकुने पानी में लहसुन का रस मिलाकर गरारे करने से गले की खरास दूर हो जाती है। लहसुन में पर्याप्त मात्रा में लौह तत्व होता है जो कि रक्त निर्माण में सहायक होता है। विटामिन-सी युक्त होने के कारण यह स्कर्वी रोग से भी बचाता है। लहसुन का रस 25 ग्राम की मात्रा में प्रातः निराहार ही त्रिफला के साथ कुछ दिन लगातार लेने से मधुमेह के रोगियों को लाभ होता है। यह कब्जहारी है। इसका इस्तेमाल जोड़ों के दर्द या गठिया में भी होता है तथा यह सूजन का भी नाश करती है। लहसुन के रस की पाँच-पाँच बूंदें सुबह-शाम लेने से काली खाँसी दूर हो जाती है। कान में दर्द होने पर, लहसुन और अदरक को बराबर की मात्रा में कूटकर कुनकुना करके कान में लेने से आराम मिलता है। 10 ग्राम लहसुन का रस मट्ठे में मिलाकर तीन बार लेने से पेचिश का शमन हो जाता है। लहसुन के सेवन से ट्यूमर को 50 से 70 फीसदी तक कम किया जा सकता है। गर्भवती महिलाओं को लहसुन का सेवन नियमित तौर पर करना चाहिए। गर्भवती महिला को अगर उच्च रक्तचाप की शिकायत हो तो, उसे पूरी गर्भावस्था के दौरान किसी न किसी रूप में लहसुन का सेवन करना चाहिए। यह रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित रख कर शिशु को नुकसान से बचाता है। उससे भावी शिशु का वजन भी बढ़ता है और समय पूर्व प्रसव का खतरा भी कम होता है।

लहसुन की तासीर काफी गर्म और खुश्क होने के कारण इसे उचित अनुपात में ही लेना चाहिए। खासकर गर्मी के मौसम में पित्त प्रधान प्रकृति वालों को इसका संतुलित इस्तेमाल ही करना चाहिए। कच्चा लहसुन बहुत तीक्ष्ण होता है इसीलिए इसका ज्यादा उपभोग करने से पाचन क्रिया गड़बड़ा सकती है। कुछ लोगों को लहसुन से एलर्जी भी होती है। ऐसी एलर्जी का लक्षण यह होता है कि कहीं-कहीं त्वचा लाल हो जाती है और सिरदर्द होता है। बुखार भी हो सकता है। सर्जरी से पहले लहसुन का इस्तेमाल नहीं करना चाहिए। एड्स के रोगी अगर लहसुन का सेवन करते हैं तो उन्हें साइड-इफेक्ट हो सकता है। अगर लहसुन का कुछ दुष्प्रभाव महसूस हो तो मरीज को गोंद कतीरा, धनिया, बादाम-रोगन, नींबू, पुदीना देते रहने से उसका दुष्प्रभाव दूर हो जाता है। घी में भून कर लेने से भी इसका कुप्रभाव दूर हो जाता है। सूखा लहसुन छीलकर ही इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए।

Managing Obesity With Ayurveda

Obesity is the state of being overweight. When excess fat accumulates in different parts of the body, it can lead to such a condition. Simply put, when the intake of calories exceeds the amount of calories burned, the extra calories get stored in the body in the form of fat. As per a recent study published in the British medical journal, the Lancet, there were 20 million obese women in India in 2014 as compared to 9.8 million obese men.

Causes of obesity: Accumulated fat leads to excessive weight gain which may occur due to a coalition of many factors such as a sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical exercise or improper eating habits. Although a host of involuntary causes such as genetics, hormonal and environmental factors can also lead to such. Recent studies have even concluded that endocrine disorders and medications comprising of psychotic drugs, estrogens, insulin and other such are also likely to lead to obesity.

Symptoms of obesity: Apparent symptoms of obesity include excess body fat, occasional shortness of breath, unwarranted sweating with a foul odor and persistent fatigue. These conditions also lead to further complications like diabetes, infertility and hypertension to name a few.

How to manage obesity with Ayurveda?

In Ayurvedic terms, obesity is called Medarog, which is caused when the Kapha is triggered. A dense, sticky, wet, heavy humor which manages all structure and lubrication in both the mind and the body is known as Kapha. Kapha provides nourishment to the various tissues of the body through several micro channels but when aggravated it leads to the production of toxins which are dense and heavy and subsequently block these micro channels. These toxins heap up in the micro channels and cause a drastic increase in the production of fat tissues, consequently causing an increase in weight. By abolishing foods that aggravate the Kapha from one's diet, people may treat obesity.

The next step would include cleansing the fat tissues using different herbs. Avoiding oily, fried and processed food is highly advisable. Avoiding foods rich in carbohydrates such as potato and polished rice also helps. Increased consumption of greens and fruits helps restore stability and when coupled with exercise, it can be a relatively quick fix to overcome obesity.

I got married last Nov. We had intercourse on 22 mar and after that she missed her period. As I am not financially sound now, we don't want child know. Kindly suggest me the kind of abortion she could go with. As she is at father s place, she will be coming to my place after one month. After then only we will be able to go for any procedure. Kindly help regarding this.

Abortion with tablets is possible only till 7wk of pregnancy. Since your wife is going to come back only after 1month, that time only surgical procedure is safe.

It is very less likely that you will conceive as you had inter course in the the relatively safe period and had an emergency contraceptive pill later. I-pills have side effects like irregular menstrual bleeds and abdominal pains and should not be used frequently. At present you should wait for your scheduled period to start. If it is missed then you should do a urine pregnancy test. If it's positive then it is possible that you are pregnant, if it's negative you may not worry and just wait for the periods to begin.

If one tube is patent, then you should try simple drugs and if fails, IUI and then IVF. But other testing of you and your partners should be done. So, consult your doctors as soon as possible.

What is the side effects using antibiotics ( Ciprofloaxcin and Norfloaxcin) on initial pregnancy stage.(Fusing time)

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Recent studies have shown that the use of fluoroquinolones (Ciprofloxacin and Norfloxacin) during early pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk of any major malformations. There were no clinically significant musculoskeletal dysfunctions in children exposed to fluoroquinolones in utero. However, chances of abortion are increased.
