Today’s lifestyle and food habits have led to obesity becoming a widespread problem across the globe. Obesity means being overweight which invites a host of other disorders that increase morbidity and mortality rates and reduces the quality of life. Obesity can cause a person to feel less confident and be less healthy as it aggravates issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid disorders, arthritis, muscle pain, fatigue and loss of flexibility.

Why is physiotherapy a safe technique for slimming and achieving the optimum body weight?
There are a lot of ways by which one can undergo weight loss. But it is important to note that many of these include intake of harmful medicines and crash dieting to bring about rapid weight loss which may not be sustained and can even cause irreversible damage to the body. Physiotherapy involves exercising and burning the excess fat accumulated in specific body parts to tone the body and make it look slimmer and healthier. As this method does not involve taking medicines to curb hunger or reduce enzyme production, it does not harm the body.

How can physiotherapy be used in slimming?
There are several ways in which physiotherapy helps in slimming and shedding the extra kilos-

  1. Physiotherapy is based on the premise that exercise and movement are the key to weight management.
  2. Physiotherapy recognises the barriers to activity and movement of a person and then deals with these problems first to lead to effective weight loss.
  3. It also aims to manage associated problems like arthritis, back pain and stiffness through exercise to increase the movement of an individual which will automatically lead to greater physical activity which will help in maintaining weight loss.
  4. Physiotherapists prescribe appropriate physical activity to tone muscles, increase muscle strength, burn calories and increase endurance based on the physical state and requirement of an individual.
  5. In a lot of persons, obesity is more a mental state than physical. Physiotherapy is the most appropriate in such cases as the physiotherapist considers individual requirements and then prescribes the most appropriate movement and exercise for slimming and weight loss.

Become The Biggest Losers : Slimming Down Through Bariatric Surgery

Become The Biggest Losers : Slimming Down Through Bariatric Surgery

The biggest losers: Slimming down through surgery

It's a common myth in the eyes of the public that obesity is a sign of mental weakness and that it can be controlled by diet and exercise. There are many other factors that can come into play, such as genetic factors, psycho-social and socio-economic factors.

Certain physiological mechanisms in our body are designed to defend against weight loss and conserve energy. Thus, losing weight is challenging and maintaining weight loss after dietary and exercise intervention even more so.

When you try to lose weight, your body defends itself against dipping too far below a certain weight or "set point

This regulation becomes abnormal in obese people. Even if this set point is abnormally high, the body defends itself.

Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, can reset that set point

Research shows that bariatric surgery is more effective for long-term weight loss compared with dietary modifications or exercise.

Trials have also shown it to improve or resolve conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and fertility.

Most patients who are overweight and make exercise and dietary modifications tend to have a high rate of failure and relapse. Surgery not only restricts food intake, but also changes gut hormones that promote satiety; suppresses hunger and increases metabolism.

This is why metabolic complications like diabetes and hypertension improve immediately after surgery, even before the patient has lost significant weight.

That is not to say that those who are overweight should give up on exercise or dieting altogether.

Two common types of bariatric surgery are vertical sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve, which involves removing a portion of the stomach; and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, a more complex procedure where a small pouch is created from the stomach. The operation creates a connection from the stomach to the small intestine, bypassing portions of the digestive tract.

Ayurvedic Slimming Tea - How They Help in Weight Loss?

Ayurveda is a field of medical science that has its rules steeped in the ancient knowledge that emanated from India. This is a well-known field of medicine, which is now practiced throughout the globe. With the help of Ayurveda, we can actually get to the root cause of any disease and ailment so as to remove the very cause from the body rather than merely giving symptomatic relief, which may not be permanent in nature. Due to this fact, Ayurveda also relies on lifestyle and diet restrictions, which go hand in hand with its Yogic postures, herbal medicines, massages and other such measures. Weight management is one such field which has many cures in Ayurveda.

The ingestion of slimming teas is one such measure for weight loss. Read on to know more.

  1. Choice of tea: First of all, it is important to know the types of tea and the choices you have when it comes to choosing the right one for your weight loss journey. While green tea, white tea and the rare oolong tea are known as the most effective weight loss tea varieties, there are others like black tea as well as decaf and herbal tea that may be suited for those who only want to lose a moderate amount of weight. Further, these can also help people who want to maintain a steady weight and remain fit. However, one must remember that sweet and diet teas can lead to long-term repercussions, if taken in excessive quantities. So, one must choose the kind of slimming tea based on the kind of weight loss that needs to be achieved.
  2. Daily habit: Now that you have chosen the kind of slimming tea that you need, you must be aware that the body goes through its own cycles of extracting antioxidants from the tea as well as the nutrients, even as it throws out the toxins in an effective manner. Therefore, one must cultivate tea drinking as a regular and daily habit with at least two cups daily cup so that the cycle is put into place for the slimming properties to kick in. You can also substitute your coffee and regular tea with this kind of tea, eventually. You will have to develop a taste for it, in order to enjoy it.
  3. No additives: It is absolutely not allowed to add any kind of additives like sugar or honey or even milk to one’s slimming tea as this will take the slimming properties to the background. Adding anything to the tea also leads to many health complications in the long run. Having plain tea will aid in the regulation of one’s awry metabolism so that in due course of time, weight loss may be achieved. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Know The Best Method Of Contraception

There are a number of contraceptives available but which method of birth control suits you depends on your sexual life, preferences and your lifestyle as a whole. Professional medical help should be sought in order to understand what method of contraception sis ideal for you.

Here is a list of 4 types of contraceptives for birth control:

1. Barrier methods - Barrier methods are designed to prevent the sperm from entering the uterus. They constitute-

  • Diaphragms: It is a shallow and flexible cup that is made of either latex or soft rubber. It is inserted into the vagina before the sexual intercourse where it prevents the sperm from entering the uterus.
  • Cervical caps: It is a thin cup of silicone whose function is same as the diaphragm, only it is smaller in size, so less noticeable and more rigid as well.
  • Contraceptive sponges: These are soft foam sponges that are filled with spermicide and are disposable. They are also inserted into the vagina before sexual intercourse in order to prevent pregnancy by killing the sperm cells or preventing them from entering the vagina.
  • Spermicides: These are chemicals that can kill the sperm and hence assist in birth control.

Other methods include male condoms and female condoms.

2. Hormonal methods - Hormonal methods use hormones in order to either stop or regulate ovulation so as to prevent pregnancy. There are various methods through which hormones can be injected into the body. Some of them are-

  • Contraceptive patch: It is a thin patch made of plastic that sticks to the skin and is responsible for releasing hormones into the bloodstream through the skin.
  • Vaginal rings: A thin, flexible ring that is inserted into the vagina where it stays for 3 weeks and is removed after that, only to be re-inserted in the 5th week.
  • Implantable rods: They are inserted under the skin of the upper arm of women where they release progestin.

Other methods include contraceptive pills and progestin-only pills.

3. Intrauterine methods of contraception - The intrauterine device is a small device, T-shaped that is inserted into the uterus in order to prevent pregnancy. The good thing about intrauterine devices is that they can remain functioning for many years at a stretch. IUDs are two types-

  • Hormonal IUD(Intrauterine Device)
  • Copper IUD

4. Sterilization - Sterilization is the most reliable contraceptive for birth control as it is permanent. It either prevents the release of sperm or the fertilization of the egg. Sterilization methods can either be surgical or non-surgical. Some of the sterilization techniques are-

  • Tubal ligation: It is the surgical technique used in females.
  • Vasectomy: It is the surgical technique of male contraception.

Other methods include sterilization implants:

5. Condoms - If you use condoms perfectly every single time you have sex, they're 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. The best way to make condoms work as well as possible is to use them correctly every single time you have vaginal, oral, and anal sex. That means wearing it the whole time, from start to finish. Make sure the condom is rolled on your penis the right way before there's any skin-to-skin genital contact. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Keyhole Method of Breast Reduction

American Board of Plastic Surgery, , American Board Of General Surgery, MS - Dermatology, M.B.B.S
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi
Keyhole Method of Breast Reduction

Women who have abnormally large breasts usually tend to develop them during adolescence or during pregnancy. Large breasts can cause physiological problems apart from being unsightly. Some of the problems commonly reported by women include back and neck problems. Let's explore one of the most common methods of breast reduction known as the keyhole method. 

What is the method of Breast Reduction? 

A "Lolli-Pop" or anchor shaped incision is made and extra breast tissue and skin are removed. The tissues are than brought together and stitched. 

The extent of the incision: 

The length and breadth of the incision can vary from case to case. However, the following areas usually tend to have scarring: 

  1. The area around the nipple known as the areola: A round circular incision is made around the areola to open up this section of the breast.
  2. Downwards from the areola to underside of the breast: This is where the keyhole shape comes into prominence as this is an extension of the incision to open up the breast. 
  3. The area on the underside of the breast along a horizontal curve: This may vary in extent from patient to patient depending upon how much tissue needs to be removed and thus may be larger or smaller. 

The Advantages of "Lilli-Pop" or Vertical Scar Only" method of Breast Reduction: 

There are many valid reasons why this method is the most prescribed and most popular form of breast reduction. Let's look at some of the reasons below. 

  1. The most minimally invasive method: Conventional breast reduction may employ techniques, which open up the breast, which is a longer and more complicated form of surgery, and this method being the least invasive has its own advantages. 
  2. Lesser Scars: With other forms of Breast Reduction, the scars along the incision lines may be much larger. With the vertical scar method, much of the scarring is hidden away due the shape of the incision as well as the size being smaller. 
  3. Quicker Healing: Most forms of keyhole surgery use liposculpture or the extraction of fat rather than full excision of tissues and thus it generally translates to quicker healing. Even in cases where excision is performed, healing still tends to be quicker with this method as the incisions tend to be smaller.
