The parents are also interviewed in order to find out about the strengths and the weaknesses of your child.

I don't have sex that frequently, but whatever times I have had it in the past, I have never gone through this situation. Since the last time I have had sex, my foreskin has stretched a lot, and it has happened in such a way that the area below the glans has kind of swelled up. Am not really sure if its swelling, as it does not pain. It is like when you tie a thread around your finger really tightly, and the area in front of the finger becomes pale, colorless and kind of buffed up; in the same way the around glans has kind of swelled up. I'm not really sure if this is normal after sex, as the foreskin hasn't stretched this much before.

Hello- You are suffering from Phimosis (tight foreskin). An acute case of phimosis may create problems for the person when he would want to pass urine or to perform sex, as this action may either be restricted or become troublesome. This is when phimosis becomes a medical emergency. It has been linked with an increased risk of infection, loss of sexual stimulation of the penis and even penis cancer. Traditionally medicine offers conservative treatment of phimosis. It is worth noting that in recent years, medicine has made great progress in this field. So, if you looking for a permanent solution for your tight foreskin, yes it is possible with Ayurveda. Surgery (circumcision) can be avoided.

We shouldn't neglect Vitamin D deficiency,Why?



We all live with the preconceived notion that India, being a tropical country will never face vitamin D deficiencies. But if you just take a look around you, you'll find that most of your friends are suffering from ailments like calcium deficiencies, bone problems, back aches, etc. Here we discuss why Indians should not ignore vitamin D deficiencies. 

 

India is located between 8.4 and 37.6 degrees N latitude, with a majority of us living in regions that receive ample sunlight throughout the year. Historically, we have obtained most of our vitamin D through adequate sun exposure. However, the modern Indian spends a considerable amount of time indoors. Many of us have a preference for traditional clothing, which covers a major portion of our body. Others factors that come into play are the rising pollution levels and darker skin pigmentation. All of these factors add up to the fact that we Indians face a growing trend of reduced sun exposure. As we are all aware, inadequate sun exposure results in reduced vitamin D synthesis and ultimately, poor vitamin D status, if not compensated by dietary intake.

 

Surprisingly, dietary vitamin D intake is significantly low in India, mainly due to low consumption of vitamin D-rich foods coupled with an absence of fortification and low use of food supplements. As a result, India has a poor vitamin D status overall.

 

Experts say that vitamin D deficiency is pandemic, yet it is the most under-diagnosed and under-treated nutritional deficiency in the world. India is no different, with a prevalence of 70 to 100 percent. Published literature specific to India confirms the need to fortify food staples with vitamin D, stimulate public health policies for vitamin D supplementation and outline dietary guidelines tailored to the Indian diet.

 

Poor vitamin D levels result in increased incidences of bone disorders including osteoporosis, osteomalacia in adults,  rickets and other bone deformities in children. Without joint efforts, there may be a dramatic increase in the number of bone disorders, and other serious diseases may lie ahead.

 

One need not be surprised that the world's second most populous country, with a population of over 1.2 billion has around 500 million vegetarians. Vegetarianism is very much a mainstream way of life, with 42 percent of Indian households eschewing meat, fish and eggs.

 

Vegetarianism is a popular practice in India and it originates from ethical and religious factors; this practice of abstaining from the consumption of animals is often out of support for animal rights. Vegetarianism partially came about due to economic reasons, too, since animal foods were comparatively expensive. As per reliable sources, foods that provide vitamin D include fatty fish like tuna, mackerel, and salmon, cod liver oil and percomorph liver oil, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks. A majority of the above mentioned foods are not a part of the regular diets of many non-vegetarians in India.


It is now proven that without a highly determined national effort to screen for vitamin D status to implement policies or guidelines for vitamin D fortification and supplementation and to re-assess recommended dietary intake guidelines, there will be a dramatic increase in the number of bone disorders and other diseases across the nation.
