4 Tips To Keep Your Bones Healthy!

Did you know that in addition to your diet, exercise is one of the best ways to make sure that you never lie on a hospital bed with a surgeon treating you for a bone disorder? Medical expertise has constantly pointed out to the fact that regular exercise makes your bones less likely to suffer from wear and tear during old age.

As you exercise, your muscles become stronger, your bone density increases and your balance improves. Of course, it goes without saying that you need to follow certain precautions before you exercise to avoid certain injuries.

Before starting any exercise program, make sure that you prepare your body for exercise. A brief warm up helps you to get your muscles ready for exercise. It also makes sure that your chances of injury are drastically reduced.

Here are some tips to keep your bones healthy:

  1. Weight lifting: Weight lifting is a type of exercise that, if done correctly, will be extremely beneficial for your bones. You can opt for simple bodyweight exercises such as pushups and squats, which build muscle as well as strength. Avoid using very heavy weights as it causes back-related problems such as slipped disk.

  2. Yoga: Yoga is another method of exercise which is very beneficial for bones and joints. The premise of yoga is static strength building wherein you hold a pose or an exercise for a certain period of time; this helps in strengthening your muscles. Along with your muscles, your bones also become stronger as you get fitter. Yoga is repetitive stress which is good for flexibility and hence keeps your joints supple and muscles in good shape. There are certain asanas which are weight bearing and anti-gravity postures can strengthen your bones. 

  3. Swimming: Swimming again is a good aerobic exercise and is good for back and over all fitness but doesn't strengthen bone per se. It is a way to keep you healthy. Swimming is a cardiovascular exercise, which is also known for its calorie burning capabilities. It is also very effective is incinerating fat and keeping your skeletal system healthy. Whereas walking and jogging and running certainly build your bones as they are weight bearing exercises.

  4. Pilates: Pilates is a new form of exercise that has been gaining a lot of steam lately. It does not require much equipment, as you can get started with just a mat. It is very effective in working your spine and the hips, thus keeping your lower back strong. A weak lower back increases the chances of bone disorders drastically.

How Unani Medicines Can Help In Preventing Diseases?

It is very vital to prevent the onset of disease, before it can turn your life upside down. One of the most popular forms of alternative medicine, Unani stresses on the importance of prevention of diseases. Here are the six essential prerequisites that have been laid down by the Unani system for promotion of good health and overall well-being:

  1. Air: Good and clean air is vital in order to maintain good health. Today, many people are affected with several diseases due to excessive levels of pollution in our environment. A famous Arab physician named Avicenna once stated that a change in environment relieves the patients of many diseases. Unani medicine emphasizes the need for open and airy houses with a proper system of ventilation to keep diseases at bay.
  2. Food and drinks: You are what you eat and drink. So, make healthy choices in your diet to stay disease-free. The Unani system recommends intake of freshly prepared food, free from putrefaction. It specializes in prescribing diets according to the health condition of the individual.
  3. Bodily movement and repose: Physical movement and staying active is also very important to maintain good health. Unani medicine continuously stresses on the importance of exercise that helps the growth of muscles, increases blood supply, and maintains proper functioning of the excretory system.
  4. Psychic movement and repose: The Unani system has extensively documented the impact of psychological factors on our well-being. Happiness, sorrow, anger and stress play a key role in the treatment and prevention of disease. In fact, there is a separate branch of psychological treatment in Unani medicine that helps to deal with it.
  5. Sleep and wakefulness: Sleep provides rest, both physically and mentally. Lack of it can cause fatigue, digestive disturbances and mental weakness. A normal sleep time and active time of wakefulness are advocated for good health.
  6. Evacuation and retention: The waste products of the body must be properly excreted and all the essential nutrients should be retained in the blood flow. Without proper functioning of the excretory system, toxins build up in the body, leading to sickness and disease.

These essential prerequisites, referred to as Asbab-e-Sitta Zarooriya, are given utmost importance in Unani medicine. This system employs these basic principles in their therapy, which constitutes of the following:

  • Diet therapy – Regulation of quantity or quality of food
  • Regimental therapy – Takes care of evacuation of waste material from the body using various means
  • Pharmacotherapy – Use of natural drugs and combinations in their formulations with minimal side effects

Thalassaemia : How To Understand It?

Thalassaemia : How To Understand It?

Thalassaemia, which is commonly referred to as thal, is a disorder of the blood which is inherited from the previous generation. This condition triggers the production of abnormal red blood cells in the body which in turn paves the way for chronic anaemia. Red blood cells play an indispensable role in carrying oxygen all through the body and hence any abnormality in this regard can result in thalassemia, the symptoms of which include, weakness all over the body, fatigue, faint and shortness of breath.

Understanding the type of thalassemia:
Thalassaemia is often thought to be an iron deficiency disease (anaemia), but can be differentiated with the aid of certain blood tests. This disease is a lifelong condition which requires efficient management. The type of thalassemia an individual is suffering from can be attributed to the number of faulty genes the person has inherited.

The two variants of thalassaemia are beta and alpha. In the case of alpha thalassemia, having one faulty gene would lead to no health problems while two faulty genes can cause mild anaemia. If there are three mutated genes, it will cause Haemoglobin H disease, and regular blood transfusions may be required. But an unborn child with four mutated genes will not be viable enough to survive the pregnancy.

The beta thalassaemia also comes in various forms. The beta thalassaemia major needs lifelong transfusion of blood and it is the most common form of thalassaemia across the world. The beta thalassemia intermedia do not have to depend on blood transfusion.

Any kind of Microcytic Anemia has to be evaluated properly with an iron profile, peripheral smear and a Hemoglobin electrophoresis, if we have evidence of hemolysis in peripheral smear.



Treating thalassaemia:
The treatment option for mild thalassaemia is entirely dependent on the type of the disease and how intense it is. When the disease is on a mild and minor level, then there may not be need of any comprehensive treatment. But at times, blood transfusions become necessary especially after undergoing surgery or when the thalassaemia causes complications.

People who are affected by severe levels of beta thalassaemia will require transfusion of blood from time to time. The treatment also causes an overload of iron and thus, it is important to remove the surplus iron content. There are several oral medications available for this, and the healthcare provider can recommend suitable medications.

Managing moderate to severe thalassaemia:
Some of the most general methods of managing and treating thalassaemia include:

  1. Frequent blood transfusions: When the thalassaemia gets too severe, it becomes necessary to opt for blood transfusion after every few weeks. The blood transfusion can cause iron build up with the passage of time. This, in turn, can affect the heart and lungs along with other crucial organs. Therefore, it is important to take medicines that can eliminate the extra iron.
  2. Stem cell transplant: Also referred to as the bone marrow transplant, the stem cell transplant can be the best bet. It is recommended for kids who are born with severe thalassaemia. This treatment option can mitigate the need of a lifelong transfusion of blood and intake of drugs for controlling the iron overload.

Thallasemia generally occurs in pockets like in Haryana, Punjab, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, etc. The concerned state units of these states need to take guidance from doctors for definite treatment which is bone marrow transplant.

Erectile Dysfunction And Sex Weakness!

Erectile dysfunction (ed) occurs when the man is unable to achieve or maintain his erection of penis to meet his or his partner's sexual satisfaction. 
The problem is often faced by newly married men. Fortunately with experience, most of them are able to overcome this problem. Again it is increasingly common with increased age. 

So, what are the causes. In some male, it is psychological, caused by anxiety, depression, stress, marital disharmony etc. Use of alcohol and smoking will aggravate the problem. Psychological causes can happen at any age but more common at younger age. But in some cases, it is associated with serious diseases, especially at old age. It has been seen that in apparently healthy male ed is the first sign of heart disease. So, if you have ed, make sure that i's not caused by your heart problem. Again diabetes is another important cause. Excessive weight gain will also cause hormonal imbalance and thus problems in erection. Some hormone may also cause ed like thyroid, prolactin and even testosterone (male sex hormone). If you have chronic diseases like liver or kidney disease, it may also lead to ed. Diseases of nerves and spines should also be kept in mind. Sometimes, infections or tumour in private parts (prostate, testis etc) will also add to ed. Other diseases of penis like abnormalities in blood vessels can also be responsible, especially in young guys. Apart from these, some surgeries in abdomen and some drugs (like drugs to lower blood pressure, antidepressants, hormonal drugs etc) will also cause ed.

Now, what you can do? if you want to suffer silently, you will land up in other problems like problem in sexual life, problem in family relationships, depression and even inability to make your partner pregnant. But do all men with ed have to go to doctor? initially, the men should try life style modifications like avoiding smoking and alcohol; avoiding stress and anxiety; making good understanding with partner and also reducing weight. The partner should also have sympathetic attitude to the husband who is having ed.

But if still the issue is not resolved you have to consult doctor. It's not a mater of hesitation or embarrassment, as you may think. Rather it is needed to ensure that you are healthy. So, your doctor will talk to you, will check you and try to find out if any cause is there or not (like heart disease, diabetes, hormones etc). He may order some basic tests to ensure that everything is alright. After that he will advise you the treatment. If the cause is found, treatment of the cause (like diabetes) may cure ed. Even if no cause is found, ed can be treated by various ways.

But should you try the drugs shown in television or newspaper? remember, drugs used in ed have important side effects and we advise drugs only when it is absolutely necessary. In most cases simple measures like stress reduction, exercise help. Sex counseling of both the partners helps a lot. And if still ed persists, we advise drugs. There are variety of drugs, all are having own advantages and disadvantages. Particularly sildenafil group of drugs can affect heart and retina. So, we always practice caution before prescribing such drugs. And when patients are advised such drugs we advise to inform us when he feels eye problems, chest pain, fainting or even painful persistent erection of penis (" priapism").

There are other drugs that can be applied directly over penis. Testosterone group of drugs are prescribed only in selective cases as they have serious side effects and even they can reduce the size of your testes. In some cases where drugs cannot be given or drugs fail, we advise penile implants or artiificial pump to maintain erection. Finally in very few cases, where blood vessels of penis is blocked, we can cure it by some operations. 

So, if you feel ed, don't get depressed. At the same time don't feel embarrassed to take medical help. Today's embarrassment may harm you in future. So, get cured and enjoy your personal life.

Five Causes of Weak Erections and How to Take Back Control

At some point in a man's life, he may find it difficult to summon or maintain an erection. Like the Boogie Man and Jeepers Creepers, this thought can sit in the dark recesses of a man's mind causing worry and anxiety. Once it happens, a thousand warning lights go off. However, take a breath and relax. For many men, this happens on occasion and is not a cause for serious concern. For men who have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection 25% of the time or more, it may be a warning flag that there's a medical condition which needs attention. Here are a few common causes of weak erections or a desensitized penis.

1) Stress and Anxiety - If a man finds himself worrying about work, money, family, or any other host of distractors, it can take a toll on the penis and make it difficult to perform. Fear of not pleasing a partner can also make the penis shirk from standing at attention. The best course of action to get an erection back is to find a way to relieve stress and anxiety be that talking to someone, meditation, boxing, or any way to let off steam and worry.

2) Obesity - A little too much around the middle can cause a restriction in blood flow to the penis, resulting in weak or non-existent erections. While a little blue pill is an immediate fix, healthier lifestyle choices such as a balanced diet and regular movement will help trim the body and reinvigorate penile blood flow resulting is strong erections.

3) Penile Neuropathy due to Illness - Neuropathy is a condition that arises from damaged nerves which can then lead to weak erections. Several factors can cause penile neuropathy such as poor blood circulation, weight, and other vascular issues. Diseases and medical issues which include a potentially penis-altering effect include but are not limited to:

- Heart Disease

- Diabetes

- Multiple Sclerosis

- Parkinson's Disease

- Peyronie's Disease

- Liver Disease

- Kidney Disease

- Treatment for Prostate Issues and Disease

4) Antidepressants - It's an unfortunate fact that some medications used to treat depression would rob a man of his ability to produce an erection. There was a famous Sex in the City episode which actually highlighted this phenomenon. A man who doesn't want to make the choice between sex and mental wellness should contact his prescribing doctor for a consultation and to weigh his options.

5) Drug or Alcohol Addiction - When it's more than just a case of whiskey dick, there may be an issue. Abusing drug and alcohols can have a negative impact on the mysterious penis and his inner workings. First and foremost, seek help for the abuse. After a period of detox, erections may return to normal. If not, see a physician for help.

Tips for Strengthening Weak Erections

There's no weight machine in the gym to help strengthen an erection, but there are other things a man can do to reinvigorate a droopy member. Some things are simple, no-brainers such as get plenty of rest, drink less or no alcohol, quit smoking, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and find ways to reduce stress in a positive way. It's also vitally important to keep sexual communication open with a partner and fully disclose issues and feelings so they can be dealt with and growth (of the emotional and penile kind) can occur.

A regimented hygiene habit also keeps the penis strong. Cleanse the penis gently and thoroughly with gentle cleansers and warm water. After clean and dry, apply a specially formulated penis health creme (most experts recommend Man 1 Man Oil) post-shower. Daily use of a creme like this results in a smooth and strong penis. Be sure to find a crème that includes penis strengthening ingredients such as L-Arginine which helps increase blood flow and helps to create and maintain firm erections. L-Carnitine is another ingredient which will help prevent nerve damage. Wrap them up in a natural base like Shea butter and there's a recipe for a reinvigorating and moisturizing daily treat for the penis.

 

Top 7 Possible Causes Of Weight Gain In Women!

Top 7 Possible Causes Of Weight Gain In Women!

The problem of obesity or weight gain is increasing by leaps and bounds among the people of almost all the age groups. This rising health issue is not only a reason for a bad figure and body shape but is also a major cause of in-numerous diseases. Especially, women are being affected by sudden weight gain in stomach and thighs because of several reasons. It is surprising to know that these reasons are not special or unknown but related to their daily life and living style.

Let’s explore the top 7 possible causes of weight in women:

Compromising on sleep

Maintaining a balance between work and family demands for compromises and the biggest sacrifice which women make here is proper sleep. Getting ready for work, making lunch, daily household chores, getting kids ready for school, everything leads to a lot of tiredness. To eradicate it, you need sufficient hours of rest. Studies have proved that lack of sleep increases the levels of Ghretin- a hunger hormone which leads to overeating and this results into excessive weight gain in a short period of time. Sleep is as important as a good diet to stop gaining extra calories. So, if you are also not taking a deep sleep, start it right away!

Depression

Depression and obesity are intertwined, symptoms of both the problems affect each other. If you have put on a lot of weight it can lead you to depression and vice versa. So, which one came first, no one exactly knows. When depression sets in, it affects your weight severely, the appetite control centre of the brain loses its power to decide how much to eat. This illness is most common among the women as they are stressed and sometimes get tensed very quickly. This issue if not treated at early stages can later give birth to serious diseases like diabetes, heart problems, thyroid and many more. You need to address this, before it takes a serious turn!

Menopause

At the age between 45 to 55 menstruation ceases in women and this is known as Menopause. But what it generally brings in is obesity. Studies show that about 35% of women aged between 50 to 55 are obese. The fat at the waistline increases after menopause and this is the major reason of weight gain. The lower levels of estrogens makes them eat more and remain physically inactive, all these processes ultimately increase the fat storage hence making them overweight. This problem is to be considered seriously before you are affected by any fatal disease.

Thyroid

Many more women than men suffer from thyroid and weight gain. This is because they undergo a lot of stress that finally affects their thyroid function. Mostly in this case the problems occur within the thyroid gland and appear later with a large imbalance in hormones. Thyroid, weight gain and menopause are therefore interrelated issues. If not cured at the earliest, it can be detrimental.

PCOD/PCOS(Polycystic Ovarian Disease/Syndrome)

Polycystic ovarian disease or Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition in which a female’s hormones are imbalanced. This disease has affected 5% to 10 % of women between the age group of 12 to 45 causing, irregular menstrual periods or even difficulty to conceive. If not treated on time it can lead to high insulin levels, obesity and ultimately heart diseases. The weight gained due to PCOD is difficult to lose. Hence it should be cured before this condition becomes disastrous.

Pregnancy

This happens most of the time that women put on weight when they are expecting. Moms to be need to take care in this condition otherwise excessive weight gain can lead to many serious issues during their delivery. Bring obese at the time of pregnancy will not expose you to some extremely fatal diseases but can affect your baby too. Obesity increases the risk to miscarriage, birth defects, premature birth, stillbirth and a lot more.

Finishing Remaining Food

Yes, this is the biggest and the most common cause of obesity, especially in women. With the fear of wasting their own cooked food, most of the women try to finish whatever is left over, hence giving obesity an easy way to devour them completely. Excessive unnecessary eating leads to the collection of fats and calories in the body. Not just this, the in between hunger pangs and food cravings also makes them eat more than needed, paving way for extra carbs.

These are the 7 leading causes of weight gain and obesity that portray how risky and harmful this problem has become, especially among women. If you fall under any of these categories, don’t wait till the situation becomes beyond control.
