The best ways to avoid getting an STD are to abstain from any sexual contact and be in a monogamous, long-term relationship with an uninfected partner. To reduce the odds of getting STDs:
Ask your partner if he or she has an STD.
Ask partners to be tested before sexual activity.
Use condoms.
Avoid sexual activity if your partner has signs of an STD.
Be aware of symptoms and get regular checkups with your health care provider.

Hello, medicine for abortion cannot be taken without meeting a doctor. The doctor will assess the duration of pregnancy and if it is safe to abort with medicine. Also for similar reason I ask you not to purchase it from chemist without doctor's prescription since wrong taking of medicine can cause complication.

Menopause: Expert Beauty Tips To Keep You Looking Young!

Every woman endure menopause, by the time she reaches middle age. It comes with a lot of complications, and skin changes are also not spared. It is vital to know how to fight the skin changes of menopause to take right actions at the right time.

Changes Experienced

Major problems faced are hormonal changes and their declines. Ultimately, ovarian activity slows down decreasing in B-Estradiol levels. This leads to hot flashes or warmth feel under the skin, especially on face and profuse sweating. The overall experience leads to decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone, leading to skin changes.

  1. Oily Skin: Testosterone production is prominent that stimulates sebaceous glands to secrete thicker sebum making skin appear oily.
  2. Facial Hair: Some women show development of facial hair, especially on chin.
  3. Sagging Skin and Wrinkles: Decrease in estrogen leads to fat redistribution. This results in skin sagging on face, neck, hands and arms.
  4. Elastosis: Lower estrogen levels lead to decrease in collagen and elastin in the skin dermis. UV rays destroy collagen resulting in elastosis.
  5. Thinning Epidermis: This leads to trans-epidermal water loss and dry skin.
  6. Hyperpigmentation / Age Spots: Melanin production is tampered.

How to Fight Against It

Here are some tips on how to fight the skin changes of menopause.

  1. With age, skin becomes dry. Right cleanser with a creamy formula is a solution for dry skin. Use heavier cream to moisten your skin. Avoid hot, long showers.
  2. Skin protection from sunlight is a must. Choose a sunscreen that is from a broad-spectrum SPF30 or higher and use it regularly.
  3. Due to hormonal changes, wrinkles appear, and hence you need to apply moisturizer on face, jawline and neck regularly. Use skin-care products meant to act against fine lines and sagging.
  4. Face, hands and chest usually get affected with age spots. Use sunscreen every day. Those who are already affected with spots, use exfoliating products. These products help to shed dead skin cells. Toners may also help.
  5. Apply moisturiser on hands too and wear gloves while doing household or yard work.
  6. Eat foods with antioxidants such as brightly-coloured fruits and vegetables.
  7. Soy, which is rich in isoflavones, acts like estrogen in the body.
  8. Stress tends to make skin drier. Yoga, meditation, etc. helps to relax.
  9. Do exercise regularly to tone your muscles.
  10. Sleep well: Beauty sleep is most essential to regenerate your cells. Sleep prevents dark circles under eyes. Around 8 to 9 hours of sleep is recommended.

Now you know how to fight the skin changes of menopause. Follow the tips and then age will be just a number.

5 Great Ways to Improve Communication!

5 Great Ways to Improve Communication!

Communicating with people is second nature to all of us. But are we doing it effectively? In today’s world, it is impossible not be in constant contact with everyone around us. We have our phones, iPads, tablets and other devices to keep in touch with everyone.

But what happens when we are required to speak to someone face to face? Do we listen to what they have to say or do we simply put our point across regardless of whether the other person has heard us or not? If we want other people to hear what we have to say and understand them effectively we must learn effective strategies.

Here are a few tips for effective communication:

1. Have a plan:

Have a clear plan in mind before you start to express your position or your ideas. Think of all the things you wish to say and write them down. When you have a clear idea of what it is you are going to say, it makes putting your point across much easier.

2. Be conscious of both your verbal and nonverbal actions:

You should  be careful about what you say as well as how you say it. Your tone and volume lets the listener know the overall direction of the conversation. If you are happy, look happy and keep the tone light. If you are angry, you will look angry and keep the tone and volume in tune.

*It is important to note that even if you are angry, yelling will not solve the issue as effectively as a well thought out argument.

3. Wait for the person to finish a thought before interrupting with questions:

Communication is a two-way street. You have to listen as well as talk. Listen to what the other person is saying before jumping to put your point across. You should show the other person the same courtesy that they showed while listening to you.

4. If you’re not sure of the message they are trying to send, ask questions:

It’s okay to ask questions once the other person has finished talking. This way not only do they feel like you are interested in what they are saying they will also know that you were listening to what they had to say.

5. Paraphrase what you heard, so the sender knows you understood the message:

Once the sender has finished speaking, paraphrase what they have said so that you both are on the same page. This way both of you will understand what has been communicated and what needed to be understood from the message.

All About Panchakarma Therapy

All About Panchakarma Therapy

The popularity of Ayurveda as an alternative form of medicine has been on the rise for sometime as it is effective, holistic and without side effects. One of the forms of ayurvedic treatment which has been practiced for ages and has resurged in popularity over the past few decades is the Panchakarma Therapy. Let's take a look at this form of alternative healing.

What exactly is Panchakarma Therapy: Panchakarma therapy, which literally translates into five therapies, is the primary form of detoxification and purification of the body in Ayurveda. The functions of Panchakarma are to remove stress and toxins which may cause illnesses as well as the re-balancing of energies or the doshas that govern all of the biological functions within the body.

Individual parts of the Therapy:

  1. Vamana: This is a medicated and controlled form of regurgitation or vomiting which is used to loosen the toxins within the body and then flushing them out of the system and to balance Kapha doshas. It is also used to clear the respiratory tract. It is extremely beneficial in case the patient has Chronic Allergies, Hyperacidity, congestion, Bronchial Asthma, obesity among other disorders.
  2. Basti or the irrigation of the colon: Although this treatment is used as a rejuvenating treatment, the main purpose of basti is to flush out the toxins with the body through the use of an enema and to clear the colon of toxins. This is often considered the mother of all Panchakarma treatments as it clears out toxins from all three doshas, namely Kapha, Pitta and Vata.
  3. Virechana or purgation of the toxins through the gastrointestinal tract: This therapy is meant to purge the entire toxins from the body via the gastrointestinal tract. Its primary targets are to detoxify the liver and the gallbladder. If you suffer from Asthma, Digestive disorders, Constipation, hyperacidity, headaches, chronic fever or diabetes, this treatment can be of immense help.
  4. Nose cleaning or Nasya: The main aim of this treatment is to clean the toxins of the head and neck area. This is achieved by administering of special medicated oils through the nose and then cleaning the Kapha toxins that have accumulated over time.
  5. Raktamokshana: This is a rare procedure but performed in extreme cases and involves blood letting in a very controlled manner and minute quantities to detoxify the body.

Importance of the Panchakarma Diet: This is one of the most important parts of the Panchakarma Therapy as none of the treatments mentioned above will be effective if you don't follow this proper diet. Treatments can be individual or a combination of multiple parts mentioned above and has been known to be very effective in curing a variety of disorders if followed properly with the diet.

lybrate-user, I have gone through the list of complaints made by you. However, there is no mention about actual blood glucose levels & HbA1c%. Unless those details are checked, there is no way of coming to a conclusion why all these symptoms are occurring. Hence, please get a diabetic profile done (fasting, PP & HbA1c%, urea, creatinine). Report the same. Then I will be able to guide. Please understand if one has confirmed diabetes, then without appropriate treatment blood glucose can not be controlled and because of that all the above reported symptoms can occur.

Untwist Your Body!

A common phrase “the backbone of the company or family,” is used to indicate the integral role a particular person plays within the context. As this saying implies, the actual human backbone is central to everything your body does and experiences.

  • The spine has two major functions. It serves to keep the body balanced and upright, and it works to protect the central nervous system. When the spinal column is in its proper alignment, the entire body is in balance.
  • Unfortunately, many outside factors can cause misalignments, or subluxations, to appear in the spine. Injuries, accidents, tension, and overworking muscles can all lead to subluxations. You will notice some of the resulting side effects like: Neck pain, low back pain, headaches, insomnia, joint pain, and chronic fatigue are just some of the many ways in which your body may be telling you that you have a vertebra out of alignment. 
  • Regular spinal alignment correction is a natural and drug-free pathway to wellness that encompasses your entire body.
  •  Advanced biomechanical spinal correction techniques that are totally different to osteopathy and chiropractic or physiotherapy, help in practically untwisting your body and release tight and stuck structures. It utilizes specific mobilization or manipulation in some cases.
  • With this unique technique, we not only treat the segmental painful area, tissue causing symptoms, but also balance the entire pelvic base, spine, TMJ and balance the upper and lower extremities.
  • Untwist your body for a healthy and painfree tomorrow!

How to Increase Blood Platelets With Home Remedies - खून में प्लेटलेट्स बढ़ाने के घरेलू उपाय

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

How to Increase Blood Platelets With Home Remedies - खून में प्लेटलेट्स बढ़ाने के घरेलू उपाय

प्लेटलेट्स हमारे शरीर संरचना का एक बेहद जरूरी हिस्सा हैं। ये हमारे रुधिर का थक्का जमाने में मददगार होती हैं, जिससे शरीर से खून का नुकसान ज्यादा नहीं हो पाता। सामान्य व्यक्तिी के शरीर में 1.5 लाख से 4.5 लाख प्रतिे माइक्रोलीटर प्लेटलट्स होती हैं। रोजाना हमारे शरीर में प्लेटलेट्स बनती और नष्ट होती रहती हैं। प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या अगर 1.5 लाख से कम हो जाए तो इस स्थि ति् को थ्रॉम्बोसाइटोपेनिया कहते हैं। अगर प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या 20 हजार से कम हो जाए तो व्यक्तिी की जान को खतरा हो सकता है। इस स्थितिी में रोगी को प्लेटलेट्स चढ़ानी पड़ती हैं।

इन वजहों से घट सकती हैं प्लेटलेट्स 
प्लेटलेट्स सामान्यता वायरल बीमारियों में घट जाती हैं। बारिश के मौसम में होने वाली बीमारियां जैसे डेंगू और मलेरिया में प्लेटलेट्स कम हो जाती हैं। वहीं प्लेटलेट्स कम होने की कुछ बेहद गंभीर वजहें जैसे ल्यूकेमिया, एनीमिया, कैंसर, लिवर या किडनी की बीमारी वगैरह भी हो सकती हैं। इसके साथ विटामिन बी 12 की कमी, खून में संक्रमण या ऑटो इम्यून बीमारी भी प्लेटलेट्स कम होने की वजह हैं।

ऐसे पहचानें प्लेटलेट्स की कमी 
प्लेटलेट्स का मुख्य काम शरीर में खून का थक्का जमाना है। खून में प्लेटलेट्स कम हो जाने पर रोगी में अंदरूनी या बाह्य रक्तस्त्राव होने लगता है। चोट लगने या घाव हो जाने पर खून बहना बंद न होना, नाक या मसूड़ों से खून आना, थकान, सुस्ती, पेशाब में खून आना, त्वचा में खून के चकत्ते पड़ना आदि प्लेटलेट्स कम होने के लक्षण हैं। 

प्लेटलेट्स कम होने की आशंका हो तो डॉक्टर से तुरंत सलाह लेकर ब्लड टेस्ट करवाएं। इसके अलावा ये घरेलू उपाय भी प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या बढ़ाने में मददगार साबित हो सकते हैं।

1. पपीता- 
पपीते का फल और इसकी पत्तिलयां दोनों ही प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या में कुछ ही दिनों में इजाफा कर सकती हैं। कुछ शोधों में भी ये बात सामने आई है किा पपीते की ताजी, हरी पत्तियों को पीसकर पीने से डेंगू से पीड़िदत मरीजों की प्लेटलेट्स में इजाफा हुआ है। पपीते को दो तरह से उपयोग में ला सकते हैं।
- कच्चा  पपीता खाएं या फिर पपीते का जूस बनाकर उसमें थोड़ा सा नींबू का रस मिलाकर रोजाना पिएं।
- पपीते की ताजी पत्तियां तोड़कर पहले उन्हें अच्छी तरह धों लें। फिर उसका रस निकाल लें। इस जूस को रोजाना दो से तीन बार पिएं। ये जूस कड़वा लग सकता है। इसलिरए एक बार में दो चम्मच जूस पिएं। 

2. चुकंदर-  
प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या बढ़ाने में चुकंदर भी काफी अच्छा उपाय माना जाता है। प्राकृतिक एंटीऑक्सीडेंट और हेमोस्टैटिक गुणों से भरपूर होने के कारण, चुकंदर प्लेटलेट काउंट को कुछ ही दिनों बढ़ा देता है। अगर दो से तीन चम्मच चुकंदर के रस को एक गिलास गाजर के रस में मिलाकर पिया जाए तो आपको इसका असर तुरंत दिखाई देगा। चुकंदर में आयरन भी मौजूद होता है, साथ ही एंटीऑक्सीडेंट शरीर के लिसए काफी फायदेमंद होते हैं। ये शरीर की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता भी बढ़ाता है।

3. पालक- 
खून में प्लेटलेट्स की कमी पालक के सेवन से भी पूरी की जा सकती है। पालक विटामिन के का एक अच्छा स्रोत होता है। ब्लड क्लॉटिंाग में विटामिन ‘के’ काफी अहम है। शरीर में प्रचुर मात्रा में विटामिन  ‘के’ पहुंचने से अधिक रक्तस्त्राव के खतरे को कम किया जा सकता है। पालक के इस्तेमाल से पहले इसको धोना जरूरी है। दो कप पानी में 4 से 5 ताजा पालक के पत्तों को डालकर कुछ मिनट तक उबालें। इसे ठंडा होने के लिए रख दें। ठंडा होने पर इसमें आधी मात्रा में टमाटर का रस मिलाकर पिएं। पालक को आप सलाद, सूप और स्मूदी के रूप में भी ले सकते हैं। पालक पनीर इसे ग्रहण करने का सबसे स्वादिनष्ट तरीका है।

4. व्हीटग्रास- 
व्हीटग्रास भी प्लेटलेट काउंट बढ़ाने में मदद करती है। व्हीटग्रास का जूस निकालकर इसमें नींबू मिलाकर आधा कप रोजाना पिएं। ये जूस प्लेटलेट्स ही नहीं बल्किल हीमोग्लोबिन, आरबीसी और डब्लूबीसी बढ़ाने में भी उपयोगी है।

5. एलोविरा का जूस- 
एलोविरा का जूस बहुत बढ़िउया रक्तशोधक है। इसके सेवन से खून के कई तरह के संक्रमण दूर होते हैं, जिससे प्लेटलेट्स की संख्या भी बढ़ती है।

6. कद्दू- 
कद्दू में प्रचुर मात्रा में विटामिन ए और के होता है। ये कोशिकाओं में प्रोटीन का निर्माण करता है, साथ ही इसे खाने से प्लेटलेट्स भी बढ़ती हैं।

7. पानी और नींबू पानी- 
सादा पानी भी आपके शरीर में प्लेटलेट्स निर्माण की प्रक्रिया को उत्तेजित करता है। इसके अलावा विटामिन सी युक्त पदार्थ जैसे- नींबू, मौसमी, आंवला और अमरूद वगैरह प्लेटलेट्स की कमी पूरी करने में काफी सहायक होते हैं।
