PCOD It is also referred to as Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD. Another name for the disorder is Stein-Leventhal syndrome. This name comes from the two American gynaecologists Irvin F Stein and Michael L Leventhal, who first described this condition way back in 1935. PCOS means a particular set of symptoms that occur when there is a hormonal imbalance in a woman. This set of symptoms include late or no periods, heavy bleeding during periods, growth of facial hair, acne, weight gain, pain in the pelvic region and difficulty in conception or getting pregnant. When it comes to alternative systems or complementary treatments for PCOS, Homeopathy offers the best alternative. This is because Homeopathy focuses on treating and curing the root cause of the problem. The Homeopathic philosophy of disease is not based on the external causes of diseases. Homeopathy believes that the human body has been perfectly enabled by nature to keep itself disease free. It is only when the immunity or its own internal vitality is deranged that the body becomes incapable of keeping itself disease free. Therefore Homeopathy tries to restore the balance of that vitality. Once the vitality regains its original balance, it is able to nurse itself back to health without any external aid. That is why homeopathic medicines are given in very minute doses.

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Damage

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Damage

Regardless of whether the cause is a tumor, trauma, stroke or any other illness, any injury which inflicts damage on your brain cells is considered to be a brain damage. 

There are two types of brain damage, both of which interfere with the standard functioning of the brain. 
They are:

  1. Acquired brain injury (ABI): Either resulting from a tumor or a neurological illness, for instance a stroke, this type of brain injury originates from the cellular level and is commonly linked with brain pressure.
  2. Traumatic brain injury (TBI): It results from any damage imparted to the skull usually from an external and physical force like a blow to the head or a head accident, which in turn damages the brain.

How severe the brain damage is depends largely on the type of brain injury. Mild brain injuries are temporary, causing headaches, memory lapses, nausea and confusion. On the other hand, severe brain injuries cause cognitive, physical and behavioral impairments which are often life-changing and permanent.

Causes:
Acquired brain injuries may be caused by:

  1. Poisoning
  2. Being exposed to toxic substances
  3. Choking, strangulation or drowning
  4. Heart attacks
  5. Infections
  6. Stroke
  7. Tumors
  8. Neurological illnesses
  9. Aneurysms
  10. Illegal drug abuse

Traumatic brain injuries are usually caused by:

  1. Car accidents
  2. Sports injuries
  3. Physical violence
  4. Head blows
  5. Falls and other mishaps

Symptoms:
Whether acquired or traumatic, symptoms of brain damage can be classified under four major groups:

1.  Cognitive symptoms generally include

  • Having a hard time processing information or expressing thoughts
  • Difficulty in understanding others or abstract concepts
  • Indecisiveness
  • Memory loss
  • Short attention spans

2.  Physical symptoms generally include

  • Excessive physical fatigue
  • Extreme mental fatigue
  • Persistent and frequent migraines or headaches
  • Paralysis
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Sleep disorders
  • Light sensitivity
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Slurred speech

3.  Perceptual symptoms generally include

  • Spatial disorientation
  • Smell and taste disorders
  • Heightened pain sensitivity
  • Changes in hearing, seeing, or touch sensations
  • Unable to perceive time
  • Balance problems

4.  Emotional or behavioral symptoms generally include

  • Decreased stress tolerance
  • Heightened or flattened reactions or emotions
  • Aggressiveness
  • Sluggishness
  • Impatience and irritability
  • Self-denial

Vaginal Itching

Vaginal itching is an uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptom that is often caused by irritating substances, treatable and preventable infections, or menopause. In rare cases, itching may occur due to stress or can be a sign of vulvar cancer. Your gynecologist can determine the cause of your itching through an examination and testing. He or she will then be able to recommend appropriate treatments for this uncomfortable symptom.

Through good hygiene and a healthy diet, you can avoid most causes of vaginal itching.

Home Care for Vaginal Itching

To prevent vaginal irritation and infection, there are several steps you can take at home.

Avoid using feminine hygiene products, as these can cause irritation.

Avoid scented soaps, lotions, and bubble baths.

When exercising or swimming, change out of wet or damp clothing immediately afterward.

Wear cotton underwear, which is breathable and will keep you dry.

Eat yogurt with live cultures to reduce the chance of getting yeast infections.

If you are diabetic, take steps to control your blood sugar.

How to Stop Biting Nails

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
How to Stop Biting Nails

1. Always keep your nails neat and trimmed. Long nails tend to get in the way and tempt you to bite them.
2. Use mint chewing gums or flavoured candies as a distraction. They keep your mouth busy and distracts the mind away from your nails.
3. Apply a few drops of neem oil on your fingers and let them dry. The bitter taste of neem oil will stop involuntary nail biting to an extent.
4. Keep a stress ball handy. Use it to distract yourself whenever you feel like biting your nails.
5. Even if this practice cannot be followed throughout the day, make sure to use gloves or adhesive bandages whenever possible. The fact that you will not be able to bite your nails will register in your mind and kill the habit slowly.
6. If you are okay with it, use nail polish to style your fingernails. This encourages you to grow nails as well.
7. Stress is a major factor that induces nail-biting in certain people. You will notice that you do not bite nails much when your mind is fresh and relaxed.

I am 6 months pregnant with low lying placenta. Do I have to take complete bed rest? If yes, then what complications I will face if I will not take rest?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

I am 6 months pregnant with low lying placenta. Do I have to take complete bed rest? If yes, then what complications ...
Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix. Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment. You can't do anything to change the position of your placenta. But you can do a lot to stay healthy and well. Eat plenty of nutritious foods, particularly those that are rich in iron, such as red meat, pulses and green leafy vegetables. This will reduce your chances of becoming anaemic. If your iron levels are low, your doctor or midwife may recommend that you take iron supplements. If you’re in hospital, keep your circulation going to help prevent blood clots. Try to move around, drink plenty of water, and use compression stockings if your midwife offers them to you. If you have placenta praevia and are waiting to see if your placenta moves up, it's bound to be a worrying time for you. Rest assured you will have the most experienced doctors available to care for you and your baby. In the meantime, learn what's involved in a caesarean section.

Hello pain during periods is called dysmenorrhea. Soo many girls gets this problem it's due to contraction of uterus. Let her take methi or fenugrik powder early morning during her periods. Once get checked up her thyroid profile. In hypothyroidism its common. And rule out anaemia.

Hello Doctor. I am 24 year old, when am sex with my boyfriend then I have in situation very painful feelings I got in every sex time then whats problem and solution.

Madam, this is happening because of stiffness of vagina. The good news is that this condition is easily treatable with ayurvedic tablets that can be taken orally. These tablets nourish walls of vagina and increase their elasticity so that there is no pain and intercourse is more enjoyable. Moreover, these tablets don't have any side effects. Just let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards Dr. Omkar shahapurkar

Dear user. AIDS do not spread through saliva. But it could spread through body fluids like blood. Do not take risk. Please use condoms even when you have oral sex. Take care.

I used to press my gf one breast every time I spend with her, my frnd said that pressing single breast will make one breast big and another one small, is it myth or fact? Please suggest.

MBBS, B.Sc. in Psychology

No only breast feeding on one side can cause small Breast on feeding side and larger on non feeding side. But prolonged pressing for longer time (over months) can cause the pressing breast bigger than other.
