Nose Job - 5 Myths Decoded!

Nose Job - 5 Myths Decoded!

With nose job or rhinoplasty turning out to be an increasingly popular surgical procedure these days in India, potential patients are presented to a great deal of data, some real, some skeptical, and some downright false.

Here are 5 of the top myths busted.

1.  The surgery is a fairly simple procedure
Nose job is one of the most complex and challenging operations in plastic surgery. Not only must the nose be in symmetry with the face, but also every segment of the nose must be directly proportionate with all of the others.

2.  Your nose can resemble any superstar's nose of your picking
A prospective nose job patient ought to have practical desires. Every individual's face and visage is different. John Abraham's nose would not look great on each man, nor is it achievable. Similarly, Kareena Kapoor’s nose would not suit every woman, however becoming it is on her. In Rhinoplasty overexpectation and unrealistic expectation is  always a cause of dissatisfaction. It is impossible to have a nose like Katrina or Sharukh Khan.

3. The anaesthesia used in the surgery is dangerous
Rhinoplasty is mostly carried out under general anaesthesia, which makes you unconscious during the whole experience. However, the anaesthesia used is completely safe. In fact, for minor procedures, a nose job can even be performed under local anaesthesia. Most patients who have undergone this surgery are healthy, and risks of long-term complications are exceptionally rare.

4. A second surgery is almost always required to get it right
While a revision surgery can be a reality when going through a nose job (as high as 10-15% in a few studies), it ideally should be a one-time operation only. Technically, the newly constructed nose is one that’s designed for life. That aside, because of the complexities of the operation and the variability in each person’s anatomy, skin, and healing, on certain occasions a revision surgery becomes necessary. When it occasionally occurs, usually it’s for something relatively minor such as a small residual bump.

5. A nose job is so expensive that only the very wealthy can afford it
Surprisingly, minor yet high-quality rhinoplasty procedures can start at as low as even INR 20,000 in India, which is not as expensive compared to several other kinds of plastic/cosmetic surgery procedures.

Caution: Avoid silicone implants for a nose job as they not good and have long term complications as extrusion and displacement.

Iron Benefits, Sources and Side Effects in Hindi - आयरन के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

Iron Benefits, Sources and Side Effects in Hindi - आयरन के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

हमारे शरीर में पाए जाने वाले कई महत्वूर्ण खनिजों में आयरन भी एक है. दरअसल आयरन ही वो खनिज है जिसकी सहायता से रक्त में मौजूद हिमोग्लोबिन ऑक्सीजन को हमारे शरीर में संचारित करता है. आप कह सकते हैं कि यह हमारे शरीर के रक्त में हीमोग्लोबिन का सबसे महत्वपूर्ण घटक है. हमारे सम्पूर्ण शरीर में ये ऑक्सीजन पहुँचाने का काम करता है. आयरन एक ऐसा खनिज पदार्थ है जिसकी हमारे शरीर में पर्याप्त मात्रा में मौजूदगी हमारे शरीर को उर्जा से भर देती है. आइए आयरन के स्त्रोत, इसके फायदे और नुकसान के बारें में जानें.

  1. आयरन के स्त्रोत: आयरन के मौजूदगी का हमारे स्वास्थ्य पर सीधा प्रभाव पड़ता है. यानी हमारे सम्पूर्ण स्वास्थ के लिए आयरन एक महत्वपूर्ण घटक है. आयरन की कमी को पूरा करने के लिए हमारे पास कई स्त्रोत हैं. कई ऐसे फल और सजियाँ है जिनकी सहयाता से हम आयरन की कमी को पूरा कर सकते हैं. जैसे कि हरी पत्तेदार सब्ज़ियाँ, मेथी और सरसों का साग, आटा, हरी बीन्स, पालक, ब्रोकली, शलजम, शकरकंद, बादाम, किशमिश, चुकंदर, काबुली चना, राजमा, सोयाबीन, खजूर, तरबूज, सेब, अंगूर, अनार, बादाम, सूखे मेवे, मसूर की दाल, अंडा, मछली आदि. इसके अलावा अंकुरित दाल का सेवन हमारे शरीर में खून की मात्रा बढ़ाने के लिए बहुत ही अच्छा विकल्प माना जाता है.
  2. आयरन से होने वाले फायदे: हमारे प्राण वायु ऑक्सीजन को पुरे शरीर में पहुंचाने का काम आयरन का ही है. इसलिए आयरन के कारण ही हम ऑक्सीजन का उपयोग कर पाते हैं. लेकिन कई बार ऐसी स्थिति आती है जब हमारे शरीर में आयरन की कमी से कई समस्याएं उत्पन्न होने लगती हैं. इसे एनीमिया के नाम से जानते हैं इस रोग को रोकने के लिए आयरन हमारे रक्त में हीमोग्लोबिन का निर्माण करता है इसके अलावा आयरन हमारी मांसपेशियों में ऑक्सीजन का उपयोग तथा उसे शरीर में सहेज कर रखने में भी मदद महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. इसके साथ ही आयरन बच्चों के विकास तथा गर्भवती महिला और गर्भ में पल रहे नवजात शिशु के संपूर्ण विकास में भी काफी उपयोगी है.
     

आयरन के नुकसान
जाहिर है किसी भी चीज का की अधिकता नुकसानदेह साबित होती है. ठीक इसी तरह से आयरन की भी अत्यधिक मात्रा भी हमारे शरीर में नुकसान पहुंचाती है. यदि हमारे शरीर में आयरन की मात्रा आवश्यकता से अधिक हो जाए निम्नलिखित नुकसान होंगे:-

  • शरीर में खून की कमी से लिवर डैमेज का खतरा उत्पन्न होता है.
  • ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस जैसी समस्याएं भी उत्पन्न हो सकती हैं.
  • खून की कमी के कारण कैंसर होने के जोखिम में भी वृद्धि होती है.
  • जब शरीर में खून की कमी होती है तो आंखों के सामने अंधेरा छाने लगता है.
  • इसमें आपको अत्यधिक कमजोरी व थकावट भी महसूस होता है.
  • खून की कमी के कारण शरीर का रंग पीला पड़ने लगता है.
  • बहुत हद तक संभव है कि आपके जीभ में सूजन की परेशानी उत्पन्न हो.
  • जब शरीर में खून की कमी होती है तो आपका दिल का तेजी से धड़कने लगता है.
  • हाथों पैरों में दर्द होना भी शरीर में खून की कमी को ही दर्शाता है.
  • सांस लेने में दिक्कत होना भी खून की कमी के कारण उत्पन्न होने वाली समस्याओं में से एक है.
  • भूख का ना लगना भी खून की कमी से ही उत्पन्न होता है.
  • खून की कमी के कारण आप जल्दी जल्दी बीमार होने लगते हैं.
  • इस दौरान आपको आवश्यकता से अधिक ठण्ड महसूस हो सकता है.
  • आपके शरीर में खून की कमी के कारण आपको सिर में दर्द की शिकायत भी हो सकती है.
  • खून की कमी के कारण बाल झड़ने की समस्या भी उत्पन्न होने की सम्भावना रहती है.
  • इस दौरान भूख न लगने की समस्या भी देखी जाती है.

I have PCOS and doctor prescribe me yamini drospirenone ethinyl estradiol and I take it from last 1 month. My last period finished on 19 and I had unprotected sex on 21 but sperm was not ejected into me. Is it chances of getting pregnant. Should I take unwanted 72 and is it safe for me.

If you have been taking Yamini regularly for 1 month, you will not get pregnant. The birth control pill becomes effective after 7 days of continued use. Also ,there are no follicles which can be fertilized 2 days after the period ends - this is an infertile time of your menstrual cycle. You do not need to take the Unwanted 72 - you will not get pregnant. I hope that helps.

Acupressure - What All Diseases It Can Cure?

Acupressure - What All Diseases It Can Cure?

Numerous clinical researches have been conducted in the field of acupuncture and they have found that acupressure is extremely effective in treating some diseases. It is very good for treating the diseases of muscles, joints and bones which are collectively known by the name of the musculo-skeletal system. Regardless of whether you are suffering from a chronic pain or a pain arising from a sudden injury, acupressure can immensely help in alleviating the symptoms.

  1. Treatment of osteoarthritis: This is the most common variant of arthritis and can be caused as a result of continuous tearing down of the system. It normally occurs in older people and can also affect the lower back along the spine, hips, knees, shoulders and elbows. The pain caused due to arthritis normally fluctuates and acupressure can help in relieving it.
  2. A quick relief to sprains: Sprains or sudden injuries normally respond well to acupressure. This kind of pain usually lasts for a week or so, and acupuncture can work effectively once a clear health evaluation has been made. For instance, if you are exposed to a sudden injury on your shoulders, the pain arising out of it can last for months and even years together. But acupressure can prevent the pain from turning chronic and offers an instant relief to soothe it.
  3. Helping the rheumatic pains: A great deal of experiments and research works have been conducted for finding the effects of acupuncture for calming the pain arising from rheumatism. If you are on the acute, early and inflammatory stage of rheumatism, then you will need a treatment so that the ailment traverses to its residual stage which can be substantially treated through acupressure. It also helps in treating various types of chronic pains and as a result, many experts suggest this treatment.
  4. Different types of headaches: Headaches can be caused due to a number of factors ranging from migraines to dental problems, from sinusitis to stress and from neck arthritis to head injuries. Migraine deserves a special mention here as it is triggered by a variety of factors like light, heat, noise and some kinds of foods. It leads to a throbbing pain that is often accompanied by vomiting and nausea, visual flashes and patterns before the eyes. Acupressure is a viable solution to these issues and it can help to a great degree if you take acupressure treatment on a regular basis.

All of these troubles can be treated with acupressure, but it is recommended to speak with a doctor before you opt for the treatment in order to evaluate your clinical history and physical condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Infertility?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Infertility?

Not everyone can conceive a baby easily. The inability to conceive a baby despite having intercourse during the fertile window in a woman’s menstrual cycle for over a year is termed as infertility. Infertility does not affect only the physical health of a woman, but also her mental and emotional well-being as well as the couple’s social health.

In some cases, infertility can be treated with Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, a couple needs to be both physically and mentally strong and healthy. Ayurveda believes that a lack of nutrition in the shukra dhatu or the person’s reproductive tissue is the cause of infertility. This can be triggered by indigestion, anxiety, depression, insomnia and the presence of toxins in the body. Some of the ways Ayurveda can be used to treat infertility are as follows:

  1. Eat cool foods: Spicy food can affect the quality of shukra dhatu and lower the quality and quantity of both sperm and ovum. This is because shukra dhatu requires a cool environment to promote fertility. Hence, eat food that is easy to digest and which has a cooling effect on the body. Men can benefit from foods like asparagus, dates and almonds, while foods like quinoa and pineapples can help a woman conceive easily.
  2. Shirodhara therapy: Shirodhara involves the movement of liquid over the forehead in a rhythmic manner at specific points. This stimulates the hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands and aids in the secretion of hormones including follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). When it comes to women, FSH stimulates the ovarian follicles into releasing an egg without which it would be impossible to conceive a child.
  3. Fight stressOne of the effects of stress is reduced libido. Prolonged exposure to stress is often a major factor that contributes to infertility. When it comes to women, stress makes a woman ovulate less regularly. In men, stress can affect the sperm production and affect testosterone levels. To fight stress, try deep breathing exercises like alom vilom or keep a little time aside each morning for a walk or light exercise.
  4. LodhraThis herb is very beneficial in treating women with infertility. It stimulates FSH and luteinising hormones (LH) and lowers the risk of a miscarriage. It also increases chances of conception. Lodhra should be taken twice a day along with honey and milk.
  5. Lifestyle changes: Ayurveda is not only about herbal medicines but also following the right lifestyle. Bad habits like smoking, drug usage and alcohol not only affect a person’s overall health but also interfere with fertility. Hence, when trying to conceive a child, quit these bad habits and try following a healthier lifestyle that involves following a routine, eating right and exercising regularly.
