Hello. Firstly avoid being empty stomach for long hours as this will eventually lead to over eating at meal times. To tackle this multiple smaller meals (5) during the day will keep your glucose level maintained and solve hunger pangs and over eating. A basic home workout is advised since hitting the gym may seem impossible for you given your profession. Jump rope exercise and few aerobic exercise starting with 10 minute workout daily (with a day off) may help you.

Psoriasis And Homeopathy

Psoriasis And Homeopathy

The cause for this irksome skin disease that presents as thick red silvery scaled patches on the skin is still being researched. The sad part is that as yet,there is no one single treatment, and mostly all of them give only  temporary relief.

DOES HOMEOPATHY REALLY WORK FOR PSORIASIS?
.CERTAINLY YES.

BUT HOW? WAIT.We will come to the answer of this question.Before that, first lets get to know more about this disease itself so that we can explain you how the treatments work.

Symptoms:

Location:

Anywhere in the body, most commonly legs, arms , knees, elbows, trunk, scalp

Underarm region, below breasts, buttocks,genitals

Look: dicoloured, silvery scaly lesions that vary in size from minute papules covering a large area

Dry, do not get infected

Some studies have shown that people with psoriasis -- especially severe psoriasis -- may be more likely to develop other conditions like:

 

  • Diabetes. Researchers aren't sure what the connection between psoriasis and diabetes is. However, other health conditions also linked to psoriasis -- high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity -- also put someone at risk for diabetes.
  • Heart disease. Medical experts say the inflammation caused by psoriasis could be related to the artery damage that leads to atherosclerosis (clogged blood vessels) and other heart problems.
  • Cancer. Some treatments for psoriasis, including PUVA light therapy and certain medications, can raise the risk of specific cancers.
  • Someone with psoriasis also has a greater chance of having depression, obesity, and high blood pressure.

Causes:

Abnormal growth of the skin that results in red, patchy appearance.Immune system cud be responsible for this because it causes a wrong trigger resulting in abnormal growth.Normal skin cells take 28-30 days to mature and fall off the surface.Psoriatic skin cells however take only 4-5 days to mature and move to the surface of the skin where they pile off instead of falling off.

 

  • There is a genetic element also, this disease runs in families of 30% of patients.
  • External factors/agg factors:infections, stress, climatic conditions like colds.
  • Injuries to skin involving burns, cuts , rashes.
  • Medications like beta blockers, lithium, antimalarial drugs, nsaid’s like brufen

Treatment:

  •  Most of the present day meds only attempt to treat the symptoms, and not the disease.
  • Psoriasis is due to hyperactive immune system. The dual function of the intestinal wall of absorption and barrier to unwanted antigens or chemicals is compromised that results in leakage of toxins into the system. The immune system then gets activated to produce antibodies and t cells leading to inflammation.
  • This process also puts added burden on liver and kidneys. The resulting hyperactive immune system leads to a build up of cells on the skin causing the itchy psoriatic symptoms.
  • The present medicines can work a bit but are harmful in the long run. The medicines should target correcting the intestinal leak that occurs and the rest will take care of itself.

Patients with psoriasis can take the following steps to try to prevent these other health problems.

  • Go for annual checkups and get regular tests as recommended. These exams can catch problems early on when they're easier to treat.

  • Know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers. If they are high, find out what to do to lower 

  • them. Treating high blood pressure and cholesterol can help keep his heart and arteries healthy.

  • Take a healthy approach to life -- including not drinking too much alcohol, not smoking, getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. A healthy lifestyle can help lower his risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

  • Ask the doctor about  cancer risks and what symptoms to watch for.

  • Ease stress. Because having psoriasis is stressful, it seems unfair that stress can trigger a flare-up. Finding ways to avoid or relieve stress part is an important part of your treatment plan.

    You need to make time every day to relax, even if it's just a half-hour of listening to soothing music. Try these healthy approaches, too:

  • Relaxation exercises, such as guided imagery or breathing exercises

  • Meditation

  • Yoga or tai chi

  • Daily exercise

 

Remember, the disease isn't who you are.There is much more to you than the fact that you have psoriasis.You should try to focus on your strengths and talents to help build your self-esteem.

 

  • While psoriasis flare-ups are often unpredictable, certain things can trigger symptoms. Managing your triggers can lead to fewer flare-ups and milder flare-ups when they do happen.
  • You should avoid using alcohol or herbal remedies to help deal with stress. Drinking alcohol may seem relaxing, but it can lead to health problems.
  • If the stress in your life feels overwhelming, talking to a therapist or trained counselor can make it easier to get through difficult times.
  • Warm up. Cold weather is hard on most people's skin, leaving it itchy, dry, and cracked. That's true for people with psoriasis, too. To keep itching and tenderness in check, you should use moisturizers more often during winter months and apply a thick coating to psoriasis patches. After bathing, pat -- don't rub -- skin dry. Apply moisturizer while skin is still damp.
  • Watch what you eat. Although many people say diet affects their psoriasis, no research has shown a connection. Some experts, however, think it's possible people may have specific food triggers. The best advice is to eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, and limited fats and sugars. If you notice that your  symptoms flare when you eat a specific food, stop eating it for a while and watch what happens to your psoriasis. At the next appointment, you should tell this to your doctor.

Diet control:

 Satvik diet  is recommended.What is meant by this?To clarify,

One is advised not to have tea, coffee, aerated drinks etc, and restrict dairy foods.Sprouted n boiled vegetables are preferred.

Compress:

  • Thick n green outer leaves of cabbage as a compress
  • Drinking buttermilk in large quantities n application of curd/buttermilk to affected area
  • Certain oils such as olive oil and oil of avocado (kulu naspati) on affected parts and oil extracted from outer shells of cashewnuts
  • Use of mud packs

 

Baths:

  • Avoid soap
  • Application of sea water externally once a day

Homeopathy treatment

  • Effective in nearly 75%of cases.
  • The approach is to strike at the root cause n create a condition such that the skin becomes healthy n the excessive exfoliation is not allowed to take place.
  • A very minute evaluation is made of the facts that includes family history,trigering factors, itching, emotional aspects,location and seriousness of the complaint.
  • One advantage of homeopathic medicines is that they are safe and not detrimental to the body on prolonged use whereas steroids used in allopathy are definitely not advisable in the long run.
  • However as the disease is difficult to tackle, people often get fed up and leave midway.Patients who have taken homeopathy  are required  caution that the journey is tedious and long, but persistence is the keyword and cure may take upto 2-3 yrs and more. Also, the disease has it own course of exarcebations and remissions so one has be aware and cautious of the above points and accordingly do the lifestyle measures and medications.

Conclusions:

  • If we look at the treatment options available various allopathic  formulations used till date offer only symptomatic treatment.Even the latest medicines seems to offer relief for months than offer a complete cure.
  • Regular exercise, balanced diet, walk in the sun are very beneficial.While the goal of complete cure may not be achieved or possible, however , a treatment that offers buildup of a better immunity with time is really advisable and hence the popularity of homeopathy which hence eradicates the troublesome symptoms and the suffering and rewards the patient with a better life.
  •  Psoriasis can be managed with the right treatment and good self-care, and now add homeopathy to it!

Premature ejaculation happens shortly before or after penetration, although there is no precise "time limit" that defines it. Depending on different places and cultures it mostly means lasting less than two minutes. In order to deal with the problem, it's crucial to understand the causes of premature ejaculation. These causes can include excessive excitement, fear of performance problems and other forms of anxiety. It can also include physical causes such as acute hypersensitivity of the nervous system.

How To Know More Your Wrist Pain? It Might Be A Carpel Tunnel Syndrome!

How To Know More Your Wrist Pain? It Might Be A Carpel Tunnel Syndrome!

Any condition that results in numbness and tingling in the hand and arm caused by a pinched median nerve in the wrist leads to carpel tunnel syndrome. Irritation of the median nerve in this manner causes tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers.
Symptoms: people mainly experience hand numbness, sensation of pins and needles in hand, hand pain at night, hand weakness/clumsiness (loss of gripping power) or wrist weakness. 

Special test: 
1. Phalen sign- tingling in the median nerve distribution is induced by full flexion (or full extension for reverse phalen) of the wrists for up to 60 seconds (this test has 80% specificity). 
2. The carpal compression test- this test involves applying firm pressure directly over the carpal tunnel, usually with the thumbs, for up to 30 seconds to reproduce symptoms (this test has specificity of 96%).
All special tests are performed by the physical therapist. 

Diagnosis: carpel tunnel syndrome is suspectedly based on symptoms, supported by physical examination signs, and confirmed by nerve conduction testing.

Treatment: mild symptoms usually can be treated with home care.
1. Stop activities that cause numbness and pain. Rest your wrist longer between activities.
2. Ice your wrist for 10 to 15 minutes 1 or 2 times a day along with physiotherapy treatment. 
3. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) to relieve pain and reduce swelling.
4. Wear a wrist splint at night. This takes pressure off your median nerve.
The sooner you start treatment, the better your chances of stopping symptoms and preventing long-term damage to the nerve.

Deflating an Erect Penis: Sex Mood Killers to Avoid

Deflating an Erect Penis: Sex Mood Killers to Avoid

It's an all-too-common scenario: A guy and his date are moving steadily toward what promises to be a robust and entertaining bout of sex. Things are going beautifully and the moment of penetration is close at hand when suddenly something unexpected happens - and the mood is ruined. Sometimes the effect is only temporary; other times, a guy might as well zip up and go home, as that erect penis is done for the night. Yes, sometimes there may be a penis health issue at play here, but more likely this has been at attack of the mood killers instead.

Mood killers

Sexual mood killers come in a wide range. They can be visual, verbal, aural, olfactory (i.e., involving a scent), physical, mental - just about anything that jars the mood of what had been a very sexy situation.

And, of course, certain mood killers for one person may mean nothing to another - or could even be mood enhancers to someone else, especially where fetishes are concerned. However, there are some experiences that are often mood killers for the majority of the population; here are a few that fall in that category.

- Babying the manhood. Not a news flash: Men can be very sensitive about their penises. The vast majority of men want their members to be described in the most effusive manner possible; it's practically impossible to go too far in assigning manly, powerful attributes to a guy's favorite body part. But treating the member like a baby and describing it as "cute" or "adorable" or (God forbid) "little" can turn a massively erect penis into a softie in no time.

- Suggesting a sex toy. Sex toys can be a great addition to a couple's repertoire - but they shouldn't be suggested when an erect penis is all primed and ready for action. Discuss the idea in advance instead; otherwise, that erect penis is liable to think that a lady doesn't find him up to the job at hand and may decide to sulk about that fact.

- Laughing inexplicably. Hey, sex is fun and there's no shame in having a good time. But sometimes a partner may laugh at an inopportune moment (such as when an erect penis is first revealed) and then refuse to say why. Not conducive to a good sexual adventure.

- Going too heavy on perfume. It's wonderful when a woman wants to smell inviting - but just as men can go too far on the cologne, some women take perfume to the wrong level.

- Playing the wrong music. Musical taste varies widely, and one person's erotic playlist may be another's techno nightmare. Until musical tastes are known, silence may be a better option.

- Comparing. It's natural to compare one lover to another - but doing it to their face during the act itself is probably not a good idea. Even if a woman finds this new man to be a superior lover, it may be wise to keep that news to herself until after the event. Otherwise, a guy may start feeling self-conscious and start wondering "Am I still ahead of him? Am I still doing it right?"

Mood killers can create an erect penis fail, so avoiding them is important. Also important for men: keeping that penis healthy through the regular use of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). For really prime results, be sure that the selected crème includes a wide range of vitamins, including A, B5, C, D and E. In addition, find a crème that lists L-arginine among its ingredients. This amino acid helps produce nitric oxide, which in turn helps penile blood vessels open up to receive increased blood flow.

Amenorrhea

Amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual bleeding. The most common cause of amenorrhea is pregnancy. Other causes of amenorrhea include problems with the reproductive organs or with the glands that help regulate hormone levels.
For a woman to have regular menstrual cycles, her hypothalamus, pituitary gland, ovaries, and uterus should all be functioning normally. The hypothalamus stimulates the pituitary gland to release follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh). Fsh and lh cause the ovaries to produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen and progesterone are responsible for the cyclical changes in the endometrium (uterine lining), including menstruation. In addition, a woman’s genital tract should be free of any abnormalities to allow the passage of menstrual blood.
Amenorrhea is of two types.

  • Primary amenorrhea. Primary amenorrhea is typically the result of a genetic or anatomic condition in young females that never develop menstrual periods (by age 16) and is not pregnant.
  • Secondary amenorrhea. Pregnancy is an obvious cause of amenorrhea and is the most common reason for secondary amenorrhea. Further causes are varied and may include conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland.

Causes.

  • Stress.
  • Over exercise.
  • Excessive weight gain or weight loss.
  • Cycle suppression with systemic hormonal contraceptive pills.
  • Chronic diseases like tuberculosis etc.
  • Pituitary causes.
  • Hypothalamic causes.
  • Ovarian causes.
  • Breast feeding.
  • Thyroid gland disorders.

Symptoms.

  • No bleeding.
  • Headache.
  • Increased hair growth.
  • Vaginal dryness.
  • Hot flushes.
  • Night sweats.
  • Anxiety.
  • Weight gain or weight loss.

Management.

  • Avoid stress.
  • Women should eat proper balanced diet.
  • Do moderate exercise to maintain body weight.

Diet in.

Good nutrition (balanced diet with adequate consumption of fats, proteins and minerals) can usually alleviate the problem.

Our homeopathic remedies are best in this case.
