Corona and mental health




Corona outbreak has definitely caught the whole world off guard. Who would have ever thought that in life we would experience quarantine, isolations, lock downs and vacant roads and offices days. 
Corona epidemic has put the whole world to a standstill. And this situation is accompanied by a severe mental imbalance cases from all over the globe. 
Fear of present and future,
Health of own or family, fear of deaths, fear of staying alone,
Fear of severe financial losses,apprehensions and anxiety about life, all this has surfaced. 
Changes in sleep or eating patterns
Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
Worsening of chronic health problems like high BP or sugar. 
Worsening of mental health condition
Increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs are more to list. 
Difficulty in concentrating, irritability, aggression, crying, Difficulty in taking decisions are few to mention.

Reactions-
Everyone reacts differently to such difficult situations in life. Some just let it go and some ponder very seriously about present and future.

Ways to cope up with stress-
Just accept.... Acceptance Is not only important but the call of the day... Accept that this time will be over soon, accept that life will start again and however hard the situation seems we will make new ways. 
Meditation and yoga- stress and anxiety are superbly controlled by meditation and yoga... Make some time for these daily. 
Spend time with your family.
Eat healthy.
Make time for activities you have always loved but never got time to do. Sing, dance, paint, blog, write, read. Just do it... 
Help with daily chorus of house and children with studies. 
Take medicines regularly for your chronic ailments.
Amidst many negatives, a pollution free environment, clear star studded sky, clean roads and parks are few positives too.
 
Homeopathy works wonderfully in all mental imbalances. Contact Ayushmaan homeopathy for more information and assistance.

LOW BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPOTENSION)




Low blood pressure, the most avoided medical condition I find in my daily practice, and i say avoided because i find people ,so used to and accustomed to it, that they adjust and accept it in daily life without doing anything about it. 
Hypotension or low blood pressure is a state of condition in which the force with with the heart pumps blood to the walls of arteries reduces.
The normal blood pressure is 120/80 mmHg but in hypotension it is well below 90/60mmhg.
Causes-
Reduced blood volume- Due to haemorrhage, loss of blood or vital fluids, decreased fluids intake as in starvation or fasts.
Anemia and nutritional deficiencies.
Hormonal changes.
Some heart problems like arrythmias, valvular diseases etc
Pregnancy.
Over and misuse of medicines.
Allergies.
Prolonged bed rest.

Signs/Symptoms-
Dizziness/lightheadedness.
Fainting (in very low blood pressure)
Chest pain.
Nausea.
Shortness of breath.
Stiff neck.                                            
Upper back pain.
Inability to focus.                                                        
Loss of vision, Fatigue/dullness, loss of consciosness (severe cases)
Shock (emergency situation needing urgent medical attention) in case of weak pulse, rapid heartbeat,confusion and rapid shallow breathing.

Treatment-
Yoga (Boat pose, fish pose, chair pose, surya namaskar, camel cat pose, triangle pose etc) are highly helpful but with consultation of a yoga teacher only.
A morning dose of caffeine(coffee) is found useful. Consult your doctor before making it a habit.
Add electrolytes to diet. Add salt to daily diet as it has sodium that will help improve blood pressure.
Avoid alcoholic beverages.
Drink plenty of water.
Crossing legs while sitting seems to help in many cases.
Eat small and frequent meals.
AVOID SUDDEN CHANGE IN POSITION OF SITTING OR STANDING .
Avoid lifting heavy weights.
Do not stand up at one place for long.
Slightly raise the head rest of your bed.
Regular exercise.

Diet-
Limit use of carbohydrates like rice, pasta, bread and potatoes.
Eat small portions over small intervals of time over the day.
Fruits like pineapple, papaya, apples, nuts, green leafy vegetables like spinach, whole grains .
BASIL - TULSI, a wonder food, Basil extract made from 10-15 leaves in water to be drunk every day.
SALT- To immediately control the situation, a glass water with a spoon of salt.
Eggs, Soups, Olives, Beans and citrus fruits.
BAEL SHARBAT , AAM PANNA, LEMONADE, NARIYAL PANI , special friends of SUMMERS.

HOMEOPATHY IN LOW BLOOD PRESSURE-
Homeopathy works wonders in cases of low blood pressure by imrpoving the vital power and immunity of the patient and also treating the underlying physical causes of low BP. 
Lycopodium, Gloninum, Natrum mur, Gelsemium, Viscum Album, China, Ferrum metallicum , Baryta mur are few drugs that do wonders in my clinical practice. Proper case taking, individualisation and constituitional approach has always worked for me in treating patients.Never do self medication. WE ARE JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY.

Constipation




Dietary fibres and constipation in kids or adults

Dietary fibres or roughage is that portion of food which is not broken down completely by human digestive enzymes. It consists of starch,cellulose etc.
 They have high water holding capacity and viscosity therefore if we take less fibre diet, we are prone to constipation..
Constipation in kids is a major problem we face at our clinic. Mothers are usually very worried because their kids are prone to constipation and thereby nutritional deficiencies. We train mothers at Ayushmaan homeopathy to make their kids diet rich in fibre and also tasty and attractive to kids. 
Include the following in daily diets of your kids and see the magical difference...
Oatmeal- make it attractive by adding berries, walnuts, almonds and maple syrup.
Apples- 1 apple gives your kid 3.6 gm fibres
Popcorns- usually kids favourite...make it healthier by adding peanut butter.
Whole grain bread with peanut butter- we call this a FIBRE BOOST BREAKFAST...
Beans , lentils like rajma, chickpeas, yellow daal, green daal are all rich in fibres.
Nuts are an all time favourite.
Guava and banana are a tremendous source of fibres. Have these daily.
