Treatment Of Pain In The Testicles - अंडकोष में दर्द का उपचार

अंडकोष पुरुषों में पायी जाने वाली एक थैली जैसी ग्रंथि है. इस थैली जैसी ग्रंथि के अंदर दो अंडकोष होते हैं. अंडकोष लाखों छोटे-छोटे शुक्राणु कोशिकाएं पैदा करते हैं और उन्हें सुरक्षित रखते हैं. इसके अलावा ये टेस्टोस्टेरॉन हार्मोन भी बनाते हैं, एक ऐसा हार्मोन जिसके कारण लड़के शुक्राणु पैदा करते हैं. साथ ही टेस्‍टोस्‍टेरॉन मांसपेशियों और बालों के लिए जरूरी होता है. इसे मर्दाना हार्मोन भी कहते हैं. लेकिन कई कारणों से टेस्टिस में दर्द होता है परंतु उसका उपचार भी संभव है. अंडकोष बहुत अधिक संवेदनशील होता है और आसानी से उनको नुकसान पहुंच सकता है. यदि इसपर हल्‍का सा भी दबाव हो पड़े तो इसमें दर्द हो सकता है. इसके अलावा कुछ बीमारियों जैसे - टेस्टिकुलर टॉर्सन और एसटीआई के कारण भी अंडकोष में दर्द हो सकता है. पुरानी चोट के कारण भी इसका दर्द बाद में उभर सकता है. आइए निम्लिखित लेख के माध्यम से अंडकोष में होने वाले दर्द के उपचार के बारे में जानें.
अंडकोष में दर्द के अन्‍य कारण
पुरुष के अंडकोष में दर्द के अंडकोष से संबंधित बीमारियों के लिए कई अन्‍य बीमारियां भी जिम्‍मेदार हैं. डाययबिटिक नेफ्रोपैथी के कारण अंडकोष की नसें क्षतिग्रस्‍त हो सकती हैं, यह भी दर्द का प्रमुख कारण है. इसके अलावा क्‍लैमीडिया जैसे यौन संचारित रोग भी अंडकोष में दर्द के लिए जिम्‍मेदार होते हैं. हाइड्रोशील के कारण भी अंडकोषों में दर्द होता है. यदि किसी व्‍यक्ति के टेस्टिकल्‍स में पहले से मरोड़ की समस्‍या हुई हो और उसने इसका उपचार कराया है तो टेस्टिकल्‍स के आसपास के कुछ ऊतक उपचार के दौरान खत्‍म हो जाते हैं और इसकी वजह से बाद में व्‍यक्ति को दर्द होता है. टेस्टिकुलर कैंसर के उपचार के बाद भी यह समस्‍या बाद में हो सकती है. कुछ अन्‍य बीमारियों के कारण भी टेस्टिकल्‍स में दर्द हो सकता है. किड्नी में स्‍टोन इसमें प्रमुख है, स्‍टोन होने पर पेशाब करने में परेशानी होती है और पेशाब के दौरान अंडकोष में दर्द होता है.
कैंसर के कारण
वृषण कैंसर की वजह से भी अंडकोष में दर्द होता है. वृषण कैंसर के उपचार के लिए यदि आपने रेडियेशन थेरेपी करवाया है तो इसके कारण बाद में भी अंडकोष में दर्द होता है. क्‍योंकि रेडियेशन से टेस्टिस के आसपास के अन्‍य ऊतक भी क्षतिग्रस्‍त होते हैं.
अंडकोष में सूजन
यदि व्‍यक्ति के अंडकोष में सूजन हो जाये तो उसके कारण भी दर्द हो सकता है. वैरिकोसील ऐसी स्थिति है जिसमें अंडकोष के अंदर की नसें बड़ी हो जाती हैं जिसके कारण अंडकोष बड़ा हो जाता है और दर्द होता है.
टेस्टिस में दर्द का उपचार
टेस्टिस के दर्द को कम करने के लिए आप सपोर्टर का सहारा ले सकते हैं, सपोर्टर का प्रयोग ज्‍यादातर एथलीट करते हैं. सपोर्टर आपके अंडकोष को आरामदायक स्थिति में रखता है जिसके कारण दर्द नहीं होता. सपोर्टर अंडकोष को बढ़ने से भी रोकता है.
बर्फ से सेकें
यदि अंडकोष में दर्द हो रहा हो तो बर्फ के टुकड़े से इसकी सिंकाई कीजिए, इससे आपको आराम मिलेगा. बर्फ के टुकड़े से अंडकोष की सिंकाई 10-15 मिनट तक करने से दर्द कम हो जाता है. यह एक प्रकार का अस्‍थायी उपचार है जिसमें तुरंत आराम मिलता है.
गरम पानी से स्‍नान
टेस्टिकल्‍स के दर्द को कम करने के लिए गरम पानी से स्‍नान कीजिए. इसके अलावा बॉथ टब में पानी गरम करके आप थोड़ी देर तक बॉथ टब में रहने से भी दर्द कम हो जाता है. हल्‍के गरम पानी से सिंकाई भी कर सकते हैं.
यौन बीमारियों से बचाव
टेस्टिक्‍स में दर्द के लिए यौन संचारित बीमारियां भी जिम्‍मेदार हैं. यदि इनसे बचा जाये तो इसके कारण टेस्टिस में होने वाले दर्द से बचाव संभव है. इसलिए यौन संबंध बनाते वक्‍त ध्‍यान रखें और कंडोम का इस्‍तेमाल करें.

Homeopathic Remedies For Clear And Glowing Skin

Homeopathic Remedies for Clear and Glowing Skin
The skin can lose its glow and get dull and discoloured. Sun exposure, Chloasma, freckles and scars due to acne are just a few reasons. Although not a life-threatening issue, people with dull and darkened facial skin usually consider it a life-altering one, leading to feelings of inadequacy and decreased self-confidence. This, in most cases, leads to the haphazard use of cosmetics and medicated ointments. However, only temporary results are usually found and in some cases, the injudicious use of such products may even aggravate the condition.
This brings us to the scope of Homeopathic treatment in such cases. We can confidently say that homeopathic remedies for clear and glowing skin are totally free from any side effects and are extremely effective in treating this problem. The medicines used are all natural and, thus, free from any harmful components. Their selection is based upon the individual constitution of the patient, and success is attained by employing the constitutional remedy internally. No external application is applied or recommended.
As the condition has arisen due to a disturbance in the internal balance of the body and not due to any external factor, the medicine too must work from inside to clear the skin. This result is gained through homeopathic remedies which raise the inner vitality of the person and throw out any noxious agent in the body which may be the cause behind dull and discoloured skin. The result—fair, clear and glowing skin is regained.

Multi Grain or Brown - Which Is The Right Bread For You?

Multi Grain or Brown - Which Is The Right Bread For You?

Be it burgers, bagels, muffins, sandwiches or simple toasts, bread has made headway into the diets of a huge portion of the populace. Although a staple diet for many since time immemorial, the consumption of bread has increased extensively in the recent past. But, which type of bread should we intake to incur the best health impacts is a question that bothers many. The general assumption is that the wholegrain variety is the best alternative. However, the barrage of marketing tactics makes it impossible to distinguish the best variety from the others. 

There are a whole lot of myths surrounding the best variety of bread and you must choose wisely before settling for one particular type. It is expedient to look beyond the overt appearance or the name of the bread, one needs to be wary of the ingredient before taking a call.

Mostly, white bread is made out of refined flour which is often striped off essential nutrients and fibers. To worsen the situation, white bread is often bleached with certain chemicals to enhance its appearance.
Certain assumptions deem brown bread as the healthier option. Unfortunately, it isn't true always. More often than not, brown bread is simply white bread with artificial coloring added to it or is caramelized. They essentially add no surplus nutritional value.

Similarly, multigrain bread can often mislead the consumers about its health impacts. Unlike whole wheat bread, multigrain breads are usually chemically treated with softened grains. This does not effectively recover the lost nutrients of the bread.

Whole wheat bread has more pronounced health benefits. It contains more wheat germ and fibers in comparison to the more processed varieties of bread. Having evaded the toxic additives, it has relatively healthier effects on our blood sugar levels.

As you realize that the bread that you eat does not necessarily affect your health favorably, wisdom lies in seeking out the least harmful variety. In that context, rye bread or spelt bread contains greater amount of minerals. Besides, bread made from barley, oats and millets have greater mineral content than the commercially hybridized varieties and promote better health.

Dandruff v/s. Dry Scalp -Know The Difference!

The skin on your scalp renews its cells like every other skin cell on your body. They restore every twenty-four days by forming new types skin cells underneath the old cells to reveal the new ones eventually. Dry skin and dandruff are caused due to many reasons, however, are different than each other. Here are a few signs and causes that separate the two:

Dandruff
Dandruff is not caused by dryness but instead an excessive amount of oil. In a few people, the yeast begins to feast upon the excessive oil and dead skin cells on the scalp, making the skin cells shed off and form flakes on the head. Here are a few reasons why dandruff is caused:

  1. Excessive intake of sugar, fat, starch
  2. Improper nourishment
  3. Heredity problems
  4. Allergies or sensitive skin
  5. Lack of rest
  6. Emotional anxiety
  7. Hormonal changes
  8. Poor well-being

Dry scalp

Dry scalp is caused because of loss of oil and moisture from the skin and can be caused because of certain shampoos, cleansers, climate, water, or even your eating routine. Signs and side effects include itching and tingling and little white flakes that fall off excessively.

Here are a few ways in which you can fight dry skin:

  1. Dry scalp can be dealt with by using normal cures, for example, apple cider vinegar since help in normalizing the pH on your scalp and remove the flakes and residue left behind by shampoos, conditioners, and other hair items.
  2. You can likewise do a light scalp message using regular oils, for example, additional virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, and so on.
  3. Yogurt and honey can help the hair recover by hydrating them and adding dampness to your scalp to fight the dry scalp.

Here are a few ways in which you can treat dandruff on your scalp:
Wash your hair consistently with a delicate shampoo to decrease the amount of oil on your scalp. qIn case that your dandruff is more serious or a normal shampoo doesn't work, try an anti-dandruff shampoo. Most dandruff shampoos contain solutions like Pyrithione zinc and Selenium sulfide that kill the fungus on your scalp or evacuates flaky skin.

  • Pyrithione zinc: It contains antifungal properties that kill the bacterial growth on your scalp that causes the flakes to appear.
  • Selenium sulfide: This helps in diminishing the signs of dandruff growth and keep an excessive number of skin cells from being killed along with it. In case you have coloured hair, ask your specialist before using the dandruff shampoo containing selenium sulfide. It can change the shade of your colour.

Scalp Peeling - What Are The 3 Different Types Of It?

Eczema of the scalp, which results in itching, flaking, or crusting of the scalp, is called scalp peeling or is commonly referred to as “dandruff”. This condition causes increased shedding of normal scalp skin cells. Dandruff may also be caused by a fungal infection, other than just dehydration of the scalp.

The causes of an extremely dry scalp, thereby causing dandruff or even bigger flakes falling from the head onto shoulders and clothes, may be due to scalp psoriasis, eczema, poor nutrition, generalized dehydration, exposure to too much direct heat, and using too much of shampoo.

The three types of dandruff that need to be treated are those resulting from fungal growth, dry scalp and the one resulting from product build-up.

  1. Fungal growth: This kind of dandruff is a chronic condition, caused by increased oil content on the scalp or an off-balance pH of the scalp. It may also be due to poor cleansing habits, or even an allergic reaction to the hair products one uses. Try switching shampoos, conditioners, or styling products to sulfate-free formulas to cure this condition.
  2. Dry scalp: Sometimes, the skin of the scalp is literally so parched and dry that it is flaky and falls away like snakeskin. People with this kind of dandruff usually have drier hair and notice a tightness in their scalp. To treat dry-scalp dandruff, it is wise to indulge one’s hair with moisturizing and hydrating shampoos, cut down on or space out harsh chemical treatments like relaxers, permanents, or dyes, and take in more moisture from the inside - drink at least 8 eight-ounce glasses of water a day, and your skin (including your scalp) will show you results that you want. Eliminating sulfates from your shampoos or other hair care products will also help with dry scalp, since these ingredients help strip away natural oils. Brushing hair or massaging the scalp - either with bare fingertips or a few drops of oil - is another great treatment, since massage helps stimulate circulation and bring blood, nutrients, and oxygen to the scalp and hair.
  3. Product buildup: The most common type of dandruff is due to product buildup. This is what happens when people with otherwise healthy manes and scalps use too many styling products, such as layering gels, hair serum, hairspray, wrap lotions, scalp oils, heat-protecting serum, and so on. Dandruff caused by product buildup usually looks more like small clumps or balls of dirt. It may have a brownish color, since all those products attract and trap plenty of dirt and sweat. Product-buildup dandruff also tends to appear sporadically, only when hair is in need of a wash, whereas other types of dandruff show up more quickly and regularly.

To treat this kind of dandruff, one should wash hair more often or simply aim for using minimum chemical-rich hair products.

Cervical Cancer Screening - When Is The Right Time?

Cervical cancer refers to the type of cancer that spreads through abnormal cells, which may be found in the lining of the cervix. This affects the lower part or the womb of the body. This may also be medically known as the uterine cervix. This kind of cancer is considered one of the most preventable ones. There are various kinds of screening tests that can help in early detection so that the symptoms become clear and the problem can be treated before the cancer spreads or malignancy sets in.

Read on to know more about the various screening measures that can help in treating and preventing the same.

  1. Pap smear test: This is one of the most recommended and easiest tests conducted for cervical cancer screening. The pap smear test is recommended for all women who have been through child birth. In this form of screening, the doctor usually takes a sample from the cervix of the patient. This will be then be put through a lab test to find any kind of anomalies in the cells of the cervix. This test is also strongly recommended on an annual basis for women who are going through menopause, as this is the time when the cells undergo maximum changes.
  2. HPV test: The HPV test can be conducted along with the pap smear test so as to find out if the HIV virus is active as well.
  3. Pelvic exam: In order to conduct screening for cervical cancer, the doctor may also ask the patient for a pelvic exam. In this test, the doctor checks the various areas like the uterus, the cervix and ovaries so as to ensure that there are no anomalies and irregular changes in these areas or organs of the body. This exam can help the doctor in finding any changes that may point at the risk of developing cervical cancer.
  4. Reading the test results: The doctor will usually take a look at the test results before making a clear diagnosis and recommending a course of medication or other kinds of treatment so as to prevent the spread or onset of cancer. For cases where this type of cancer has already progressed to a great degree, the doctor will usually recommend chemotherapy as well as radiation and sometimes, even surgery.

When should you get a screening test done?
Once you are above 21 years of age or have had a baby, it is imperative to get a screening test done at least annually. It is also important to get this done once a year if you are going through menopause. The doctors may ask you not to go through a test, if your previous three tests have been clear.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome - Are You Aware Of These Facts?

If you are experiencing difficulty in breathing or rapid breathing, shortness of breath and low blood pressure, you might have been affected with acute respiratory distress syndrome or ARDS. This is a fatal lung condition in which the supply of oxygen to the lungs and into the blood gets prevented. The symptoms of this syndrome develop within two days of the illness.

Here are 10 important facts about ARDS you should know about:

  1. Because of the low level of oxygen in the blood, the organs of the body may not function properly. The kidneys and brain require constant oxygen-rich blood supply and there are chances of organ failure due to ARDS.

  2. Commonly, people who get ARDS are already in hospital for some other health problem. People who are not hospitalised may get ARDS because of conditions such as pneumonia.

  3. In ARDS, the tiny blood vessels of the lungs leak more fluid than usual into the air sacs of the lungs. This happens because of infections, injuries or some other condition. The lungs cannot get filled up with air and sufficient oxygen is prevented from getting pumped into the bloodstream.

  4. Several factors also lead to ARDS. These include sepsis, severe bleeding due to any injury on the head or chest, breathing in harmful smoke, or inhaling vomited content of the stomach from the mouth.

  5. People who are prone to ARDS have some condition that may injure their lungs directly or indirectly.

  6. The initial symptoms of ARDS include a feeling of not getting sufficient air in the lungs, low oxygen levels in the blood and rapid breathing. The diagnosis of ARDS depends on your medical history and the results from several tests and physical examinations.

  7. The treatment of ARDS is undertaken by oxygen therapy, medicines and fluids. A patient with ARDS is likely to develop some other health condition while in the hospital, such as lung scarring, blood clots, infections and pneumothorax.

  8. Many people recover from ARDS completely while others keep on facing certain health problems, such as shortness of breath, muscle weakness, depression and fatigue. Problems related to memory and clear thinking are also indicated.

  9. By improving your quality of life, you can recover from ARDS. You need the support and encouragement of your family and friends. You must avoid smoking and keep away from any kind of lung irritant.

  10. The treatment for ARDS has showed progress in the recent years. Hence, more people are recovering from this condition. New treatment procedures are being researched on.

Magnesium Deficiency - Signs That Your Body Is Giving You!

Magnesium Deficiency - Signs That Your Body Is Giving You!

We all know about magnesium as a mineral, but what most individuals do not know is the fact that it is a very important mineral for our bodily health. Magnesium is involved with more or less 300 complex metabolic processes in our body, thus earning the title of ‘master mineral’.

Here is a list of reasons why magnesium holds an important place in our body.

It is responsible for transportation of calcium across cell membranes. As such, it helps calcium get into the bone matter. Like we all know, magnesium is anti-inflammatory. It helps in waiving conditions mentioned below:

  1. Arthritis
  2. Alzheimer’s disease
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Respiratory issues
  5. Diabetes

So magnesium deficiency can definitely cause numerous problems in the human body. This element works in our body at a cellular level. It is important to have a check up done with the doctor to ensure the magnesium level, however, a simple a blood test cannot determine the presence or absence of it.

Here are a few signs that might suggest that an individual is suffering from magnesium deficiency.

  1. A lot of calcium deficiency which means brittle bones
  2. Very poor heart health
  3. A lot of unnecessary weakness
  4. Very frequent muscle cramps at unusual situations
  5. Tremors, nausea and unnecessary anxiety
  6. High blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
  7. Difficulty in swallowing the food
  8. Poor memory
  9. Lots and lots of useless confusion

Although individuals with magnesium deficiency suffer from these symptoms, it is not necessary that any individual suffering from such symptoms might have magnesium deficiency. So, the only way to improve magnesium amount in the body is by changing your diet and including magnesium rich foods or my supplementing your food with magnesium-based food products.

Magnesium overdose is close to impossible and so many would not check their magnesium intake. However, consuming too much of anything can never be a good idea. Excessive magnesium intake might end up causing the following issues:

  • Irregular heartbeats in individuals
  • Slow breathing
  • Diarrhoea

This excess amount of magnesium in the body might be due to the fact that not all supplements can be easily absorbed by the body. So it is a better idea to eat inexpensive food to keep the magnesium levels at par with the bodily requirements.

Here is a list of items that can relieve the deficiency symptoms of low magnesium.

  1. Seeds of pumpkin
  2. Seeds of sun flower
  3. Soya bean
  4. Black beans
  5. Sesame seeds
  6. Almond
  7. Spinach and many more
