Prevent Heart attack or Stroke

Heart attack and Stroke are the top two major cardiovascular diseases (CVD) responsible for the most number of deaths worldwide. World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that every year approximately 17 million people die of cardiovascular diseases particularly heart attack and stroke.

The good news is that 80% of premature heart attacks and strokes are preventable. Some of the effective ways to prevent heart attack and strokes are described here in brief :

1. Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet is crucial for healthy heart and circulation system. For healthy diet, eat five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily (400 – 500 grams daily). Eat foods containing fibers like beans, lentils, peas, oat, lean meat, etc. Avoid salt and salty foods, use less than 1 teaspoon (5 gram) of salt per day. Alcohol should also be used in moderation. Avoid foods containing bad cholesterol (saturated fat, trans fat) like butter, ghee, palm oil coconut oil, egg yolk, poultry skin, chocolate, fatty red meat, etc. Alternative to these foods are foods containing unsaturated fat like sunflower oil, safflower oil, soybean oil, peanuts, cashew, walnut, almonds, etc.

2. Take regular physical activity: At least 30 minutes of regular physical activity every day helps to maintain cardiovascular fitness; at least 60 minutes on most days of the week helps to maintain healthy weight.

3. Avoid tobacco use: Tobacco in every form is very harmful to health - cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or chewable tobacco. Exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke is also dangerous. The risk of heart attack and stroke starts to drop immediately after a person stops using tobacco products, and can drop by as much as 50% after 1 year.

4. Control your blood pressure: High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but is one of the biggest causes of sudden stroke or heart attack. Have your blood pressure checked and know your numbers. If it is high, you will need to change your lifestyle to incorporate a healthy diet with less salt intake and increase physical activity, and may need medications to control your blood pressure.

5. Control your blood lipids: Raised blood cholesterol and abnormal blood lipids increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Blood cholesterol needs to be controlled through a healthy diet and, if necessary, by appropriate medications.

6. Control your blood sugar: Raised blood glucose (diabetes) increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. If you have diabetes it is very important to control your blood pressure and blood sugar to minimize the risk. Blood sugar needs to be controlled through a healthy diet, staying active, maintaining healthy weight and, if necessary, by appropriate medications.

Autism cure in Homeopathy

Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication and by restricted and repetitive behavior. People with autism may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most other people. Signs of autism begin during early childhood and typically last throughout a person’s life.

Globally, autism affects about 1 in every 59 children and it is about 4 times more common among boys than among girls.

There is no medical test, like a blood test, to diagnose the disorders. Doctors look at the child’s behavior and development to make a diagnosis. Autism can sometimes be detected at 18 months or younger. By the age of 2 years, a very reliable diagnosis can be made by an experienced doctor.

Autism symptoms related to Social interaction :The child does not respond to name by 12 months of age, avoids eye-contact, prefers to play alone, does not share interests with others, has flat or inappropriate facial expressions, does not understand personal space boundaries, avoids or resists physical contact, is not comforted by others during distyuress, has trouble understanding other people’s feelings

Autism symptoms related to Communication : The child does not talk, say only one word at a time, is not able to put words into real sentences, has delayed speech and language skills, repeats words or phrases over and over (echolalia), gives unrelated answers to questions, uses few or no gestures (e.g., does not wave goodbye), talks in a flat, robot-like, or sing-song voice, does not understand jokes, sarcasm, or teasing

Autism symptoms related to Behavior : The child is very active, acts without thinking, has short attention span, has high aggression, causes self injury, shows unusual eating and sleeping habits, shows unusual mood or emotional reactions, lacks fear or has more fear than expected, plays with toys the same way every time, is very organized, gets upset by minor changes, has obsessive interests, follows certain routines, shows unusual reactions to the way things sound, smell, taste, look, or feel

Homeopathy tyureatment for Autism : Homeopathy can tyureat autism. There are about 20 commonly homeopathic medicines indicated for autism. The exact medicine, its combination, its potency and repetition can be determined by analyzing the patient case history – child’s behaviors, social skills, communication, detailed study of the family history, etc.

Some of the medications that could be used to tyureat autism are:

Carcinosin - This is very helpful in children affected by autism who are talented, but are obsessive, compulsive, stubborn and also have sleep related issues. These children may also have addictive disorders.

Agaricus - This medication is very good for children who may be mentally and physically awkward and show symptoms like indifference, muttering, talking, shouting or singing but not answering to direct calls or questions. Agaricus is very effective for children who suffer from involuntary jerking when they are awake.

Cuprum Metallicum - This works wonders when the child is being very obsessive, angry and is inflexible, tense and is very aggressive towards their parents. Some of these children may even exhibit malicious behaviors and are usually averse to touch or being approached.

Androctonus - A child or a patient who tends to swing wildly from a stable good mood to a destructive mode can be calmed down or evened out by Androctonus. These children also exhibit behaviors of suspiciousness and quickness to act on their compulsion.

Helleborus - This is a very effective medication when the child is slow and under active and seems to be depressed most of the time. Some of these children may also have muscular weakness and helleborus is very effective in tyureating them.

These are only a few examples of medicines used for curing Autism. However, you should not take these medicines own your own, you must consult a homeopathic doctor who can prepare the right medications for the patient.

Should diabetic person drink alcohol?

Here we provide you a few facts about alcohol and information on how people with diabetes may be affected by its use.

1. Nutrients in alcohol : Most of us know that calories come from the three main nutrients (called macronutrients) in the food that we eat : carbohydrate (carb), protein, and fat. Carbohydrate and protein contain 4 calories per gram, while fat contains 9 calories per gram. These nutrients are also called essential nutrients because we must take them in from food and they serve vital roles in the body.

Alcohol is not carbohydrate, protein, or fat. So where does alcohol fall into the mix? Alcohol isn’t an essential nutrient but it does contain calories — 7 calories per gram, to be exact. If you’re watching your weight, you need to keep an eye on how much alcohol you drink. Additionally, alcohol contains little, if any, vitamins and minerals, unlike carbohydrate, protein, and fat foods.

2. Alcohol and Liver : In our body alcohol is metabolized, or processed, by the liver. If you drink alcohol, your body kicks into gear to metabolize it because, unlike carbohydrate, protein, and fat, the body has no way to store alcohol. Once the alcohol hits your stomach, about 20% of it is absorbed into the bloodstyuream, and the rest enters your intestines where it’s digested. A small amount is excreted through the urine, sweat, skin, and your breath. The liver is a key organ for alcohol metabolism; liver detoxifies alcohol through a process called oxidation.

3. Alcohol and blood sugar level : Alcohol can affect your blood sugar levels. Why does this happen? It goes back to the liver: The liver sees alcohol as a “poison,” and its task is to eliminate it. The liver is a remarkable organ, but it’s not a great multi-tasker. If it’s busy dealing with alcohol, it’s not able to focus too well on blood sugar levels, and as a result, low blood sugar can occur. Sometimes, drinking alcohol can lead to high blood sugar, especially if a person drinks a lot and/or if they drink alcoholic beverages that contain a lot of carbohydrate, such as some beers, dessert wines, and cocktails.

4. Drinking quantity : When it comes to alcohol, moderation is the key. Moderation means drinking no more than two drinks per day if you’re male, and no more than one drink per day if you’re female. A “drink” refers to 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor, such as vodka or rum. And, to be on the safe side, if you have any diabetes complications such as neuropathy or kidney disease, or if you take medications, talk with your doctor about whether it’s safe for you to drink alcohol.

5. Sleep quality : Alcohol can affect your sleep quality. Though a glass of wine may leave you feeling sleepy, the quality of your sleep is negatively impacted by alcohol. Alcohol interferes with REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is a restorative type of sleep. As a result, you can end up feeling groggy and unable to concentrate the next day. Drinking alcohol can also trigger sleep apnea, as it can suppress normal breathing.

6. Other negative effects of alcohol : Alcohol can impact more than just your blood sugar level. It can raise blood pressure and blood fat (triglyceride) levels; it can also trigger your appetite, causing you to eat more and gain weight! Of course, alcohol can impair your judgment and lead to safety issues, especially if you’re driving. Alcohol can also take a toll on the liver, leading initially to inflammation and eventually, cirrhosis, which can be fatal. Women need to be careful about how much alcohol they consume, too, because two or more alcoholic beverages per day can increase the risk of invasive breast cancer by 41%.

So, should you drink alcohol or not? Most people with diabetes can safely drink moderate amount of alcohol, but since every individual’s health condition is different, it’s really best to discuss it over with your doctor to accurately find out whether you should drink alcohol and if so, what’s the safe quantity.
