Slipped Disc - A Bird's Eye View!

You are likely to be aware that Slipped disc is a scenario where the disc, meant to cushion adjoining vertebras, slips from its original position and bulges out to press a nerve root resulting in pain. It can happen due to an injury or weakness. The condition is also known as Prolapsed or Herniated disc. Read on to know more about this condition.

Symptoms
All slipped discs don’t cause symptoms. Many individuals did not know they have slipped a disc until they met their physician. That is a reason why proper diagnosis is required before initiating any curative method, as it's related to the spine. Lower back pain may result from accidental injuries such as a sprain or strain. There are no other serious reasons to cause Slipped disc.

Risk Factors
Factors that increase the risk of a slipped disc are:

  1. Professions involving the lifting of heavy item frequently
  2. Professions involving continuously sitting for a long time like driving
  3. Sportspersons involved in weightlifting or similar activities.
  4. Obese Patients
  5. Aging

Diagnosis
The first step of diagnosis involves enquiring about the complete medical history and physical exam to check nerve function and muscle strength. For this purpose, leg- raising test is conducted wherein you may be asked to raise the leg to observe the pain sensation. Your doctor would also check for an increase in pain while applying pressure on a nerve, sometimes with the help of a specialized tool. Other diagnostic tools that may be utilized are:

  1. Nerve conduction test
  2. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  3. Computerized tomography (CT) scan &
  4. X-rays

Treatment
Nonsurgical treatments are the preferred course of action. You will be prescribed pain relievers, which helps in reducing the pain associated with a herniated disk. Also, the use of heat or cold, compressing methods, which have been found to cure similar cases are advised. It is also recommended to avoid bed rest, as it prevents any chances of putting the disc back in normal position.

Chiropractors are also one of the preferred choices of consults because exercises and physical therapy, with gentle stretching provide relief from pressure on the nerve root. These are some essentials to be performed one by one or together in combination for bringing the spinal column back to its normal shape. This is what physicians do with a more accuracy to treat patients suffering from the slipped disc without surgery.

But it is essential to follow your physician instructions and go about the therapy thoroughly else the condition can worsen and surgical reinstallation of the spine would be the only course of action. Ultimately, the bottom line is not to be anxious about the protruded disc and to keep going about your normal tasks as usual under the supervision of your physician to get cured.

In today’s day in between surgical n conservative measures there is another treatment modality Called Interventional Pain n spine treatment n this has excellent potential for chronic non healing discogenic back pains or leg pains. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Valentine's Day for Love Birds

Valentine's Day for Love Birds

Valentine's Day Can Mean a Happy Penis

Valentine's Day is almost here, and men in relationships need to make sure they don't blow the most romantic day of the year - one practically guaranteed to result in a happy penis for men with partners. (That's not to say that men without partners won't have a happy penis on February 14, of course. After all, there are many ways to make a penis joyful.) Guys will want to be sure they pay extra attention to penis health, of course. But there are other things to consider to make Valentine's Day a special day (and night).

Romance

While romance and sex often go hand in hand, they also can be independent of each other. Many men think about Valentine's day primarily as a way to make a happy penis even happier, with the romantic aspect of the day of secondary importance. But many women feel just the opposite. While they are anxious to enjoy their partner sexually, their primary goal may be to really explore the romantic aspects of their relationship. Hopefully, a man will know his Valentine's Day partner well enough to know just what level of importance she places on romance - and will act accordingly.

It pays for guys to keep romance uppermost in their minds. Whether it's candy and flowers, a nice candlelit dinner for two, or ice skating on a moonlit lake, a man needs to build romance into his Valentine's Day activities.

But remember: while partners appreciate a man doing something special for Valentine's Day, it's even more important to be verbally and physically affectionate. A beautiful gift is great, but it's even better when it's accompanied by a man gently stroking his partner's hair and talking about the qualities she has that make her special.

Sex

Clearly, sex is a pleasurable experience at any time, but it often is even more so on Valentine's Day. There are any number of things a man can do to make sex more special on this particular occasion. Among these things are:

- Petal the bed. Sure, it's almost a cliché - but it works every time. Strew red rose petals all across the bed and enjoy a whole new experience.

- Use special sheets. A hint of satin can feel delicious on bare skin. Whoever is on bottom will relish the shimmery feel.

- Add candles. Candles add a sensuous, soft glow to the proceedings; if they also have a pleasant aroma, so much the better.

- Musicalize the mood. What makes her blood pump? Does she get twitching when Ravel's "Bolero" kicks in? Or does she melt to sexy soul music? Putting together a well-thought-out tunestack can pay off in bed on this big night.

- Make the foreplay last. On Valentine's Day, there's no need to rush. Plan the evening so the bedtime experience can last as long as desired. And make sure that plenty of that time is devoted to careful, loving, sensual foreplay.

- Communicate. Moaning is good, but don't forget to use words as well; let her know what feels good, how luscious she is and how lucky you are to be with her.

Valentine's Day is a joyous day for a happy penis, but it clearly is going to be even happier if it is in prime health. Men can keep their members healthier by regularly applying a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crème will include two amino acids, L-arginine and L-carnitine. L-arginine helps to create nitric oxide, which in turn helps to keep penile blood vessels open and receptive to increased blood flow. And L-carnitine is blessed with neuroprotective properties which help it prevent peripheral nerve damage and loss of sensitivity due to rough handling.

• Heat half a cup of water in a boiling pot. Add one teaspoon turmeric powder, and one teaspoon black pepper. You may also add cinnamon sticks. Boil this for about two to three minutes. Add one tablespoon of honey. Drink this daily until the condition improves.
• Alternatively, make an herbal tea by adding one teaspoon of turmeric powder and one teaspoon of carom seeds to a cup of water, and boil it until water reduces to one-half cup. Add some honey and drink this herbal solution two to three times a day.
• Another way to use turmeric is to roast turmeric root and grind it into a smooth powder. Mix it with water and honey, and drink it twice a day.

Panchkarma Treatment
BEST TIME FOR PANCHKARMA

Are you feeling stressed out and anxious? Do you have trouble getting a good night's sleep? Are you struggling with pain, a chronic condition, or a difficult diagnosis?

If physical and emotional roadblocks are preventing you from fully enjoying your life, it's time to experience Perfect Health.

People come to Panchakarma for a variety of reasons, but with a shared desire to increase health, vitality and energy. To experience a calm mind and balanced nervous system and to have an inner sense of well being, that feeling of being truly comfortable in our own body.

Panchakarma is appropriate for almost everyone except young children and those of advanced years. There are specific contradictions for Panchakarma. We are very careful at Living Ayurveda to insure that Panchakarma is an appropriate treatment for you and your present level of health.

Some people are basically healthy, yet have a specific health concern. It may be as simple as the need to pause and renew due to a hectic life. It may be the desire to insure that a genetic family health trait is kept in check so as not to develop. Perhaps there have been issues and challenges around pregnancy. Panchakarma is an opportunity to unwind and release long held toxins, worries and memories. It is a time for you to create optimal good health in all areas. A time to reflect on life and determine if the life you are living is truly good for you, and if it is not, a time to change your direction to one more positive.

Others come to Panchakarma as the result of chronic disease and seek to stop the downward spiral of health. Addressing chronic or vague health issues or those difficult to diagnosis is one of Ayurveda’s strong suites. At some point people recognize that there are consequences to a lifetime of choices that are cumulatively creating a negative impact to their health. Poor diet, over exertion, smoking, drugs, alcohol and unhealthy relationships take a toll on our health. Panchakarma is a powerful yet kind and gentle way to remove these toxic accumulations and to begin to regain your health, your prosperity and your life.

Our physical, mental and emotional environments have changed dramatically in the past 70 years, more change has occurred on the planet in this time than the total change in all of time before. The introduction of new synthetic chemicals and electromagnetic influences from the impressive array of communication technologies are only two examples of recently invented outside influences. These outside influences combined with the pace at which we live, and the not so positive lifestyle choices we sometimes make, have created an unprecedented burden on the body. The human body is an amazing, evolving organism, but it simply does not have the capacity to adequately adapt to maintain health in the face of these radical environmental changes.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, both very conservative health agencies, report that 85% of all diseases are the result of environmental exposure. More than 86,000 new chemical compounds are been created since Word War II. Less than 1% have been tested for impact to human safety. These chemical assaults are in our food, water and air. They are in our clothes, our homes and workplace.

It is mind boggling to realize that the very first television broadcast originated from Nazi Germany only 70 years ago. Today we are bombarded continuously with multiple forms of electromagnetic communication signals; cell phones, radio, microwaves and more.

It is hard to believe, given the pace that we now live, but the concept of “being on time” did not exist 80 years ago prior to the industrial revolution and modern manufacturing coming into being. We are pushed everyday to make every minute count. Consultants charge for the services by the minute, we pay for parking by the minute, and even our news is “up to the minute”. It is little wonder that we collapse into bed at night.

And there is the impact of our personal choices. The small choices that we make everyday in regards to diet, nutrition, exercise and even relationships, make a big impact on determining our level of health and disease. As a society we are living longer, yet very few of us reach our senior years disease free. There are a number of diseases and disease processes with non-specific causes; cancer, chronic fatigue, arthritis, osteoporosis, essential tremor, various auto-immune diseases and the list continues to grow. What is the value in living longer if to only suffer poor health? And to be a burden? These small choices we make everyday are similar to a snowball rolling down hill picking up “flakes” of poor health.

Education is a central component of care at Living Ayurveda. By being actively involved with every aspect of your care, we are able to spend more time with you, learn more about you, your life, and how you live. We can then provide education that is in alignment with your life and your constitution, to help you make better day-to-day choices. You begin to understand how you can exchange foods, activities and ways of thinking that do not match who you are for ones that truly support you and begin to stop the formation of this toxic snowball.

The good news, Panchakarma is as effective today as it was 5000 years ago. Panchakarma can counter these many challenges and be an invaluable aid in keeping us strong, vital and healthy. Panchakarma offers a systemic treatment that cleans and balances every cell in our bodies. Given the proper nutrition and removal of blockages and toxins, the human body will right itself and steer a course to good health.

Why Should I Undergo Pancha-karma Treatment?



Stress, environmental pollutants and poor lifestyle choices create a toxic load on the body that—if left in the tissues and bloodstream—results in poor health.

Panchakarma reverses this degenerative process quickly and its effects are often profound and long-lasting. Panchkarma uses a combination of massage, herbal saunas, special foods and nutritional directives, mild fasting and colon therapies to rid the body of accumulated toxins.

Your personal Panchkarma program begins with a thorough exam by an Ayurvedic Physician, which enables the doctor to recommend a program tailored to your individual health. As your Panchkarma treatments progresses, you will be given a special diet combined with certain herbs and essential oils to use at home. These will help stimulate your liver and digestive organs, helping them to purge toxins.

What Can I Expect?



The Panchakarma cleansing process affects the whole person. Thus, during the program, you may notice changes on mental, physical and emotional levels. Many of our patients experience a “healing crisis.” This is a normal part of the healing process, and may be seen as a beneficial step toward optimal health.

The Healing Crises



A healing crisis occurs when a large quantity of toxins that have been locked in our tissues for years are released into the system for elimination. As these toxins are expelled, you may experience insomnia, heaviness, aching or general discomfort and flu-like symptoms. You may also develop a feverish feeling, which is simply your body’s way of burning up toxic waste. You may notice some emotional mood swings or experience intense feelings. Do not be alarmed—this is both a natural and necessary part of tissue cleansing. Make time to visit with your Ayurvedic Physician or facilitator on a daily basis while undergoing Panchkarma treatments and they will help to walk you through the process.

Completing the PANCHKARMA Cycle



To complete your Panchkarma treatment, you will do a mild fast and special liver purge followed by a specialized rejuvenation program. You will be amazed at your increased energy level and renewed vitality. Periodic Panchkarma treatments, in addition to your individual dietary and exercise routines, will help to prevent disease and maintain optimal health.

Oligospermia: Is There A Treatment For It?

Oligospermia: Is There A Treatment For It?

It is important that we treat our body with care and ensure that we eat healthy and right, in order to support our body to function right. When the semen that spews upon ejaculation does not have the appropriate amount of sperm in it, this signifies a condition called Low Sperm Count. This is also called Oligospermia, while a complete lack of sperm in the fluid or semen is called Azoospermia. If a male has less than 15 million sperms in each millilitre of semen, then he is considered as a patient suffering from low sperm count. 

This also makes a person infertile and lessens the chances of fertilising a partner's egg. The symptoms may include problems in gaining and retaining an erection, premature ejaculation, pain and discomfort, a lump in the penis, and inability to conceive a child. This may be caused due to infection, ejaculation problems, tumours, hormonal imbalances and Varicocele. The way to treat this condition is as follows:

- Surgery: A patient with a low sperm count may be asked to go through surgery which will help in correcting a Varicocele in a surgical manner. For this, any vasectomies that the patient may have gone through will have to be reversed. Also, the doctor can resort to sperm retrieval methods in order to scoop the sperm directly from the testicles and epididymis. This is usually done in cases where there is no sperm in the semen that the patient ejaculates.

- Infection Treatment: With the help of antiviral medication and oral antibiotics, any infection in this part of the body can be treated and cured so that normal sperm production can take place. While this method can cure the infection in the reproductive tract of the patient, there is no guarantee of increasing fertility with this process.

- Hormone Treatment: The doctor can aim at treating any hormonal imbalances by using hormone replacement therapy as well as medication. This can help in treating cases of infertility as well by tweaking the way the body produces and uses hormones.

- Counselling: A patient may have to undergo counselling and associated medication to help in overcoming problems like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.

- Assisted Reproductive Technology: ART or Assisted Reproductive Technology usually involves surgical extraction of sperms from donors which can be inserted in the genital reproductive tract of the female partner so that conception via methods like In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) can be possible.

Increasing the frequency of sexual intercourse and avoiding excessive use of additives like lubricants can also help in increasing the sperm count. One must also follow a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise even as a proper routine is followed. Also, smoking and excessive drinking must be avoided. One must also time sexual activity with the ovulation cycles of the partner.
