Five simple lifestyle changes to prevent Varicose vein

Varicose vein is a condition where veins become enlarged, swollen, bulge and tortuous. This condition often occurs when veins of leg and feet are not functioning properly. This condition is very common in woman and the related factors are menopause, prolonged standing, obesity, pregnancy, aging etc.

Primary symptoms are enlarged veins with or without pain, heaviness and achiness over the enlarged veins. At this stage we can improve blood circulation and muscle tone through various self measures.

In some cases there will be swelling, discoloration, itching and bleeding vein. Later ulcers develop near to the ankle region, known as venous ulcers. At this stage pain aggravates after sitting or standing for a long time.

If the patient has no discomfort or pain treatment might not be necessary. It is important to get medical attention when the patient has discoloration, pain and venous ulcers.

Life style changes

1. Avoid constant standing or sitting for a long time. Try to elevate your leg with a footstool and avoid crossing legs when sitting. Try to elevate your legs 2-3 times a day, at least for 20 minutes.

2. Do physical activities like cycling in the air, peddling you feet, stretching the ankles etc. to get your legs moving and improve blood circulation. Yoga can also help tone your muscles and improve strength.

3. Use compression stockings on legs. Compression stockings can help veins to function properly by creating a gentle pressure up the leg. This pressure keeps blood from pooling and decreases swelling and pain in the legs.

4. Tight clothing like Skinny pants should be avoided and wear looser fitting clothes to improve blood circulation. You should avoid wearing too tight belts, tight shoes or high heels for a long time.

5. Consume foods rich in fibers, vitamins, antioxidants as they help reduce the pressure on your vein. Take more peas, beans, whole grains, oats etc. Try to lose weight as obesity puts excess pressure on the veins of the legs.

Dengue fever is the common viral disease caused by dengue viruses (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4) which is carried and spread by Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. This disease cannot be spread directly from person to person. NS1 antigen test is the rapid diagnostic test for the early detection of dengue virus infection.

Dengue fever symptoms appear 3-14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito and include sudden onset of fever along with head ache, pain behind the eyes, body aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and body rashes.

These symptoms usually last for 4-7 days and most people recover within a week. In some cases the disease develops into severe form, called dengue haemorragic fever.
It is a rare complication characterized by high fever, low blood platelet level, enlargement of liver, low blood pressure and bleeding from the nose and gums. So if you have dengue haemorragic fever symptoms, immediately seek medical attention as this form of dengue is fatal.

7 Effective ways to prevent Dengue fever

1. Avoid visiting areas prone to mosquitoes. Mosquitoes like Aedes aegypti breed in stagnant water so it is important to remove artificial containers containing water near your home. Clean the empty pots, flower vases, coconut shells etc.
2. Protect yourself from mosquito bites by sleeping under mosquito bed net and wearing long sleeved shirts and long pants. Use a mosquito repellent like Neem oil on your skin when you go out.
3. If you think you may have dengue see your healthcare provider immediately. It is important to seek medical attention before adopting any herbal or natural home remedies.
4. Patient should take complete bed rest.
5. Avoid curd, red meat, heavy, spicy and other food items that are not easy for digestion. Take fruits like pomegranate, passion fruit, kismis, grapes, papaya etc.
6. Drink more amount of luke warm water in order to avoid dehydration. Take Tulsi ginger tea to strengthen the immunity.
7. Take dengue preventive herbs like Neem, Guduci, Sunti etc. Intake Papaya leaf juice and Neem leaf juice can prevent platelet destruction.

Concept of Snana in Ayurveda

Bathing improves agni (digestive power), provides health, longevity, and enhances sexual drive, energy and strength. It removes kandu (itching), mala, shram (fatique), sweda (sweat), lethargy, trishna (thirst), daha (burning sensation) and ill feeling.

• Ayurveda suggests that having hot water head bath is bad for eyes and hairs.
• Cold water / Luke warm water is always better to use.
• Pouring warm water below the neck while bathing gives strength to the body.
• Bathing in extremely cold water especially in cold seasons vitiates kapha and vata, likewise bathing in too hot water in hot season vitiates pitta and raktha.

Contraindications According to Ayurveda bath is contraindicated in persons of facial palsy, inflammatory eye diseases, diseases of oral cavity, karnaroga, diarrhea, abdominal distension, rhinorrhoea / running nose, indigestion and just after intake of food.

Is it Harmful to take a bath right after eating food ?

According to Ayurveda agni, the fire element is responsible for digestion. When we eat fire elements get activated and there will be increased blood circulation. One should not take bath in next two hours after having food. Why because when we take a shower body temperature goes down. Blood circulation gets diverted towards the skin and extremities to maintain temperature. Bathing after having a meal leads to indigestion, nausea, and abdominal discomfort.

Acidity is one of the most common problems in today’s lifestyle due to increased stress and imbalanced diet. In new onset it is easily curable, however it causes serious health problems if becomes chronic. The Ayurvedic term for it is Amlapitta where the sourness quality of Pitta dosha gets increased causing acidic sourness. The symptoms may range from simple heartburn to serious vomiting. The severity of symptoms varies according to chronicity of the problem.

Causative factors leading to Acidity are prolonged intake of stale food items, hot, spicy, pungent food, white flour, half cooked or improperly cooked food, milk products especially cheese, milk sweets, sour buttermilk, heavy to digest & oily or deep fried food, liquor, sour food items, citrus fruits & their juices, black gram, over eating, fasting or long gap between meals, heavy dinner, sleeping immediately after meals and suppressing the urge to vomit. These causes disrupt the proper functioning of Agni (Digestive fire) and increases the doshas mainly Pitta dosha. Even after the onset of the problem, if the person does not control his diet habits, the liquid and sour property of Pitta dosha further increases causing digestive juice to become abnormally sour leading to fermentation of food. Aggravated Pitta dosha along with Vata & Kapha dosha produces various symptoms. In the initial stages of acidity, one experiences slight pain in abdomen during digestion of food, burning sensation in chest and sour belching. If one ignores these symptoms, the disease further progresses leading to various other features like headache, nausea, sour belching with vomiting, pain in the chest, heaviness of the abdomen, weakness of the body, burning sensation in throat, stomach and chest.

With due restrictions in diet and lifestyle along with intake of suitable herbs, Acidity can be maintained or controlled.

Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease characterized by decreased bone mass and density leading to an increased risk of fracture. Mainly there are 2 types of osteoporosis based on the causative factors – Primary and secondary. Primary osteoporosis is of 2 types postmenopausal osteoporosis attributed to decrease in estrogen production after menopause and senile osteoporosis, which occurs after the age of 70 in both men and women. Secondary osteoporosis occurs at any age in men & women as a result of improper diet & lifestyle, prolonged use of medications like glucocorticoids that are likely to induce osteoporosis, predisposing diseases, etc.

There are so many causes for osteoporosis, some of which are listed below.

• As age advances there is denegation of all the tissues including bone tissue hence greater chance of osteoporosis. Especially in female, after menopause or hysterectomy there is estrogen deficiency leading to rapid reduction in bone mineral density.

• Heredity factors – Those who have a family history of osteoporosis have an increased risk.

• Prakriti as a predisposing factor – Among different Prakriti people, a person dominated by Vata prakriti will have risk factor associated with development of osteoporosis as Vata is directly related to bone tissue. As we age, there is natural increase of Vata in our body irrespective of our Prakriti and hence a Vata dominant person is more susceptible to osteoporosis.

• Diet & habits – Excess intake of alcohol, Vitamin D deficiency, and unhealthy diet habits especially a diet low in calcium or other essential minerals and increased sodium. Also many soft drinks contain phosphoric acid, which may increase risk of osteoporosis. Physical inactivity and large volume of endurance training also affects the bones adversely leading to decreased bone density & increased risk of osteoporosis.
