9 Positive Effects Of Coconut Water On The Health

The goodness of water is known to all and sundry. Another fluid to watch out for is the coconut water. Coconut water will leave you with a mouth open awe with its health benefits. From small kids to pregnant women to elderly people, everyone can drink coconut water (unless asked to avoid on doctor recommendation) without any tension. The sweet, nut-like taste of coconut water is indeed very refreshing and soothing, a great respite in the scorching summers.

Positive effects of coconut water on the health

  1. A low-calorie drink: Coconut water is an ideal and healthy substitute for processed fruit juice, aerated drinks, and beverages. Some of the amazing health benefits of coconut water include;
  2. Improves Digestion: Coconut water is an excellent source of phosphatase, diastase, folic acid, and other enzymes that aids in the digestion of food.
  3. A person with dehydration (an outcome of dysentery, diarrhea or cholera) can benefit immensely from coconut water. The coconut water works by restoring the lost electrolyte and plasma balance in the body.
  4. Keeps skin aging at bay: Cytokines and lauric acid are known to have anti-aging properties. They maintain the pH balance of the skin. Coconut water is a rich source of lauric acid and cytokines. As expected, coconut water helps to restore the natural glow of the skin. Coconut water greatly nourishes and protects the skin from rashes and skin infections.
  5. Drink coconut water, forget depression forever: Riboflavin, pathogenic acid, and thiamine are the triple healing vitamins that help to lower depression and stress in a person. With these important vitamins present, coconut water will lift your mood and spirits effortlessly.
  6. Weight management: Being a low- calorie drink, coconut water is a healthy option for people who are on a diet and want to lose few extra kilos.
  7. Healthy bones the natural way: An excellent source of calcium, coconut water will keep your bones strong and healthy.
  8. Kidney stones a thing of the past: A natural way to deal with the problem of kidney stones is indeed a great news. Potassium is present in abundance in coconut water. Thus, it not only helps in dissolving the kidney stones, but also ensures that there is no recurrence of the condition (kidney stones).
  9. A healthy blood pressure: Coconut water comes as a much-needed blessing for people with high blood pressure. The minerals (Potassium and Magnesium) along with Vitamin C ensure that the blood pressure is within healthy limits.

The magnesium present in coconut water comes as a savior for people with migraines.

  • A rich source of potassium implies coconut water helps to lower the instances of muscle cramps.
  • Having long, healthy, and lustrous hair is no longer a dream, all thanks to the coconut water. It hydrates the scalp, thus providing the necessary nourishment to the hair.
  • Being low in sugar and calories, coconut water is an excellent remedy for diabetic patients.

Hairfall - How Ayurveda Helps To Manage It?

Hairfall - How Ayurveda Helps To Manage It?

Seeing multiple strands of your hair leave your scalp with shampoo, on the floor while combing or on clothes later on is terrible. It gives a feeling of going bald if such a situation continues unabated, and that feeling is disturbing.

Hair fall has become a major problem for many nowadays. Often lack of proper care and knowledge about hair care products causes damage to hair and eventually hair fall. According to Ayurveda, hair fall is associated with body type that varies from person to person and also the stability of mind-body structure. Hair is considered as a byproduct of bone formation, as stated by Ayurveda. The tissues which are responsible for the development of bones are also responsible for hair growth.

Here are some ways through which Ayurveda addresses the problem of hair fall:

1. Dietary modifications: It is important to identify the lifestyle habits that cause hair fall problems. Consumption of excessive alcohol, meat, coffee, tea and smoking are some of these habits. Hair fall can also be aggravated by indulging in intake of too much greasy, spicy, oily, sour, fried and acidic foods.

Here are some ways suggested by Ayurveda to beat hair fall:

  • Hair growth can be stimulated by drinking fresh juices of pomegranate, carrot, spinach and kokam.
  • Sesame seeds promote hair growth as they are rich in magnesium and calcium.
  • Cow's Ghee is a trusted remedy to resolve all scalp problems.
  • Green vegetables and fruits are rich in fiber and hence help in preventing hair fall.
  • To make the roots of hair strong, foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin B-complex, sulphur and zinc must be consumed, which are found in whole grains, soybeans, buttermilk, nuts and milk.

2. Ayurvedic herbs and medicated oil: bhringaraja, brahmi, amla, neem, ritha and ashwagandha are some ayurvedic herbs rich in essential nutrients that help in reducing stress and promoting hair growth. Different types of oils including coconut oil, brahmi oil, amla oil or mustard oil are useful in hair fall.

3. Yoga and meditation: Inverted asanas help in stimulating the blood flow to the head. Additionally, practicing deep breathing exercises to control anxiety, stress and keep the mind balanced is also advisable.

Hepatitis C - Homeopathic Remedies For Treating It!

Hepatitis C - Homeopathic Remedies For Treating It!

The liver plays a significant role in the body’s various metabolic processes. Infection with hepatitis C virus causes inflammation of the liver, known popularly as Hepatitis C. It is a relatively new discovery (late 1980s), but there are a significant number of cases identified. The challenge in identifying this disease is that the patient does not manifest with any symptoms and can be carrying the virus for years with no signs or symptoms. This makes diagnosis very difficult and in most cases, it is discovered when diagnosing for some other disease. It is transmitted via blood – through use of drug needles, tattoo needles, or sexual when the virus is present in the vaginal fluid.

Homeopathic Treatment For Hepatitis C -

Cosntitutional treatement is the key!!

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat Hepatitis C infection but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for Hepatitis C treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

Homeopathy offers remedy for hepatitis C by detoxifying and neutralizing viral cells, improving immunity, and stimulating production of healthy cells. The following compounds are useful in this.

  1. Chelidonium Majus: Prepared from the flowers of Celandine, it acts on the hepatobiliary system and restores overall liver function. The patient’s presenting symptoms include jaundice with pain, bloated abdomen, significant lethargy, weakness, reduced appetite, nausea and vomiting.

  2. China Officinalis: This is useful in patients who are down with intermittent fevers, headaches, gallstones, dyspepsia and hemorrhages. The patient could also have debility, trembling, ringing in the ears, flatulence in the abdomen, gassy feeling and vomiting of bile.

  3. Bryonia Alba: This is prepared from the plant known as wild hops after potentization. It works on multiple systems including the digestive, hepatobiliary, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems. This is useful in patients who suffer from dyspepsia, migraine, bronchitis, joint pains, back pain, menstrual issues, and respiratory tract infections. The patient could also experience a burning sensation and soreness in the abdomen, which is extremely tender to the touch, along with nausea and vomiting. The symptoms are aggravated during summer months and with heat.

  4. Kali Carbonicum: The active ingredient acts of multiple bodily systems including kidneys, liver, digestive, blood, bones, lungs, etc. It is widely used in liver dysfunctions like nephrotic syndrome, cirrhosis, and hepatitis C. The patient may have liver atrophy, cirrhosis, heaviness in the abdomen or jaundice. He or she could be restless, excitable and nervous. Extreme weakness and reaction to changes in light, sound, touch and odors are some other symptoms. The pain could be relieved by rubbing.

Other medicines like Lycopodium, Belladonna, Nux Vomica, and Aconite are also useful. However, as with all homeopathy medicines, self-medication is not advisable. The doctor will check for all accompanying symptoms and your overall health status and then determine what would work for you.

First you have to meet a Hematologist to find out the cause of low platelet count. Both Deplatt and Aspirin are antiplatelets .He needs further blood work up to ascertain the cause and accordingly he can b given antiplatelets. Alternate day aspirin will not be the answer.

I think you are being treated for bipolar depression. At the outset let me inform you that is a very difficult situation to rely on medication alone. You need to combine intense counseling to learn coping skills and techniques to handle the complications of life that is anyway challenging even for the ordinary person. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Ayurvedic Treatment Of Tuberculosis - क्षय रोग का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

क्षय रोग जिसे टीबी के नाम से भी जानते हैं, इसकी बिमारी ट्यूबरकल बेसिलाई नामक जीवाणु के द्वारा उत्पन्न होता है. इस बिमारी के प्रमुख लक्षणों में खाँसी का तीन हफ़्तों से ज़्यादा रहना, थूक का रंग परिवर्तित हो जाना या उसमें रक्त की आभा नजर आना, बुखार, थकान, सीने में दर्द, भूख में कमी, साँस लेते समय या खाँसते समय दर्द महसूस करना आदि शामिल हैं. टीबी  एक संक्रामक रोग है. यानी ये तपेदिक रोगी के खाँसने या छींकने से इसके जीवाणु हवा में फैल जाते हैं और उसको स्वस्थ व्यक्ति श्वसन के जरिए ग्रहण कर लेता है. हलांकि जो व्यक्ति अत्यधिक मात्रा में ध्रूमपान या शराब का सेवन करते हैं, उन्हें इसके होने की संभावना ज्यादा रहती है. यदि आपको इसके लक्षण नजर आएं तो तुरन्त जाँच केंद्र में जाकर अपने थूक की जाँच करवायें और डब्ल्यू.एच.ओ. द्वारा प्रमाणित डॉट्स के अंतगर्त अपना उचित उपचार करवायें. ताकि पूरी तरह से ठीक हो सकें ध्यान रहे कि टी.बी. का उपचार आधा करके नहीं छोड़ना चाहिए. आइए अब हम आपको क्षय रोग के कुछ आयुर्वेदिक उपचारों के बारे में बताएं.
लहसुन में मौजूद एलीसिन नामक तत्व टीबी के जीवाणुओं के विकास को बाधित करता है. क्षय रोग के उपचार में लहसुन का उपयोग करने के लिए आप एक कप दूध में 4 कप पानी मिलाकर इसमें 5 लहसुन की कली पीसकर मिलाएं और इसे चौथाई भाग शेष रहने तक उबालें. अब इसे उतारकर ठंडा होने पर दिन में तीन बार लें.
प्याज का रस और हिंग
क्षय रोग के मरीजों को नियमित रूप से सुबह और शाम को खाली पेट आधा कप प्याज के रस में एक चुटकी हींग मिलाकर एक सप्ताह तक पीना चाहिए. इससे आपको एक सप्ताह के बाद फर्क दिखना शुरू हो जाएगा.
क्षय रोग में आप सभी घरों में आसानी से मौजूद शहद का इस्तेमाल भी अपनी परेशानी को कम करने के लिए कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए 200 ग्राम शहद, 200 ग्राम मिश्री और 100 ग्राम गाय के घी को मिलाकर तीनों को 6-6 ग्राम दिन में कई बार चाटें. और बेहतरी के लिए ऊपर से गाय या बकरी का दूध भी पिलायें.
पीपल वृक्ष की राख
पीपल वृक्ष के छाल की राख का उपयोग भी टीबी के मरीज कर सकते हैं. इसके लिए 10 ग्राम से 20 ग्राम तक पीपल वृक्ष के राख बकरी को बकरी के गर्म दूध में मिला कर नियमित रूप से सेवन करें. इसमें आवश्यकतानुसार मिश्री या शहद भी मिला सकते हैं.
पत्थर के कोयले की सफ़ेद राख
टीबी के मरीज पत्थर के कोयले की सफ़ेद राख के आधा ग्राम को मक्खन मलाई अथवा दूध के साथ नियमित रूप से सुबह शाम खाएं तो लाभ मिलता है. फेफड़ों से खून आने वाले मरीजों के लिए ये बेहद प्रभावी है.
रुदंती वृक्ष की छाल
रुदंती नामक वृक्ष के फल से निर्मित चूर्ण से लगभग सभी प्रकार के असाध्य क्षय रोगी आसानी से ठीक हो सकते हैं. इसके लिए कुछ आयुर्वेदिक फार्मेसियां रुदंती के छाल से कैप्सूल भी बनाती हैं. इससे रोगियों को स्वास्थ्य लाभ मिलने का दावा किया जाता है.
केला के ऊर्जा देने की क्षमता से लगभग सभी परिचित हैं. केला में मौजूद पोषक तत्व हमारे शरीर के प्रतिरक्षातन्त्र को मजबूती प्रदान करते हैं. इसके लिए आप एक पका केला को मसलकर इसमें एक कप नारियल का पानी मिलाकर इसमें आधा कप दही और एक चम्मच शहद मिलाकर इसे दिन में दो बार लें.
सहजन की फली
सहजन के फली को सब्जी के रूप में आपने भी इस्तेमाल किया ही होगा. आपको बता दें कि इसमें जीवाणु नाशक और सूजन रोधी तत्व मौजूद होते हैं. इसके यही गुण टीबी के जीवाणु से लड़ने में हमारी मदद करते हैं. इसके लिए आप मुट्ठी भर सहजन के पत्ते को एक गिलास पानी में उबालकर इसमें नमक, काली मिर्च और नींबू का रस मिलाएं.  अब नियमित रूप से सुबह खाली पेट इसका सेवन करें. इसके अलावा आप सहजन की फलियों को उबालकर सेवन करके अपने फेफड़ों को जीवाणु मुक्त कर सकते हैं.
अपने अपने सूजन नाशक एवं जीवाणु रोधी गुणों के लिए आंवला मशहूर है. इसमें मौजूद पोषक तत्त्व शरीर की प्रक्रियाओं को ठीक ढंग से चलाने में मददगार हैं. इसके लिए आप 4-5 आंवले का बीज निकालकर इसका जूस बनाएं और इसका प्रतिदिन सुबह खाली पेट लें. यह टीबी रोगियों के के लिए अमृत के समान है. आप चाहें तो आंवला चूर्ण भी ले सकते हैं.
आक की कली
क्षय रोग के मरीजों को आक की कली खाने की सलाह भी दी जाती है. इसके लिए पहले दिन तो आपको ईसकी एक कली को निगल जाना है. फिर दुसरे दिन दो कली और तीसरे दिन तीन इसी तरह क्रमशः 15 दिन तक लेने से काफी लाभ मिलेगा.

Sex Addiction Symptoms - How Can They Be Dealt With?

Psychiatrist, Delhi  •  27 years experience
Sex Addiction Symptoms - How Can They Be Dealt With?

Are you confused about whether you are a sex addict or not? Well, loving to have sex and being a sex addict are two completely different things and if you want to know the difference then you must look out for the signs of sex addiction.

Signs of Sex Addiction

  1. One of the common signs of sex addiction is the urge to masturbate at most times. And it means literally at all times. If you find yourself doing it before going out to work, after lunch or even before sleep, then you might be a sex addict.
  2. If you feel a constant crisis in your life, this could also be a symbol of being a sex addict. If you are constantly changing your sex partners and still find yourself in a crisis, then something is really not ok.
  3. Thirdly, if you care only about yourself when it comes to sex, it is another sign that you are a sex addict. You might be a caring person in other cases, but when it comes to sex, you tend to become selfish and start exploiting others.
  4. If you are having sex without the consent of your partner and do not think about the consequences attached with it, it is a sign that you are a sex addict.

How Can You Deal With Sex Addiction?
Sex addiction might seem impossible to deal with but there are ways which can help you out.

  1. The first step towards dealing with sex addiction is that you should know the difference between healthy and unhealthy sex. You should be able to differentiate between the both.
  2. Avoid the places that can trigger your addiction towards sex. You are the only person who will know your triggers. If it is a bar or a pub, then avoid going to those places, instead go on a dinner with your loved ones.
  3. Try engaging in activities that interest you as this can help you get over the urge to have sex. These will also help you stay active and be more productive.
  4. Cutting ties with contacts that help you fulfill your sexual desires can be a great way to manage sex addiction.

Always remember that your loved ones are always there for you. Confide in a close friend regarding your addiction and he or she will help you out. Sex addiction is not hard to overcome if you have the willpower to do so.
If the above-mentioned tips do not help, seek assistance from a professional.
