Best food to boost mind and mood !!



An enormous number of us, from time to time, end up to be sensitive, crabby, or basically sluggish and depleted. This could have a ton to do with your dietary model and ordinary dietary examples. 

Maybe the best factor for a perpetual trickiness could be a drop in glucose, or glucose. Eating little meals during that time instead of tremendous dinners could be of extraordinary help to keep your mind and personality impeccable. 

Regardless, on the flip-side eating on concentrated sweets isn't always an amazing response for keep your spirits high. 

Like most addictive drugs, concentrated sweets start a spike in the perspective because of their high sugar levels that are trailed by a manner annihilating drop that makes you have to scan for your next fix. These kind of sustenance's can leave an individual tired,depleted and much of the time upset

Know everything about ASTHMA in Children

Under special posts of Children Health care, you will notice series of posts related to critical treatments.

Today, lets discuss about Asthma.
HealthcampIndia.Blogspot.com
                               Pic: Renown health
Asthma is a long-term (chronic) lung disease that causes your child's airways to become sensitive to certain things (triggers). 

Several things happen to the airways when a child is exposed to triggers:


  • The lining around the airways swell.
  • The muscles around the airways tighten.The airways make more thick mucus than normal.
  • All of these things will cause the airways to narrow. 
  • This makes it difficult for air to go in and out of your child’s lungs and causes the symptoms of asthma.
Causes

The exact cause of asthma is not known. Researchers think it is partially passed down through families. But it can also be caused by many other things such as the environment, infections, and chemicals.

Risk Factors

A child is more likely to get asthma if he or she:

  • Is age 5 to 17 years old
  • Has family members with asthma
  • Has allergies
  • Is around tobacco smoke
  • Is around air pollution
  • Has another health problem such as sinus problems and being overweight
Symptoms

Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each child. Children with asthma have times when they have few, if any symptoms. They also have times when symptoms flare up. Symptoms may include:

  1. Cough that is either constant or comes and goes
  2. Wheezing or whistling sound that is heard while your child is breathing
  3. Trouble breathing or shortness of breath while your child is active
  4. Chest tightness
  5. Tiredness
  6. Cough at night
  7. Noisy breathing
  8. The symptoms of asthma can be like other health conditions. Make sure your child sees his or her healthcare provider for a diagnosis.

Diagnosis

To diagnose asthma, your child’s healthcare provider may recommend these tests:

Spirometry. A spirometer is a device used to check lung function. It can be done in young children, including infants. 

Peak flow monitoring. A peak flow meter is used to measure the amount of air a child can blow out of the lungs. This measurement is very important in checking how well your child’s asthma is being controlled.

Chest X-rays. This diagnostic test uses invisible energy beams to make images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film.

Allergy tests. Allergy tests can show if your child has allergies that may be causing or worsening asthma.

Treatment

Treatment will depend on your child’s symptoms, age, and general health. It will also depend on how severe the condition is.

  • Your child’s healthcare provider may refer you to a pulmonologist. 
  • This is a doctor with special training to treat lung conditions. 
  • Your child may also be referred to an asthma and allergy specialist. 
  • Your child’s treatment is based on how severe his or her symptoms are and how easily they are controlled. 
  • Treatment includes finding triggers and ways to avoid them. It will also include medicines.

Know everything about ASTHMA in Children

Asthma medicines include:

Bronchodilators. These medicines are used to help open the narrowed airways. They may relieve coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing.

Anti-inflammatory medicines. These medicines help decrease the inflammation in the airways.

Anti-leukotrienes. These medicines help decrease the narrowing of the airways. These are usually given by mouth.

Immunotherapy. This can be used for severe asthma attacks in children ages 12 and older.

Complications

Asthma that is not well controlled may cause:

  1. Severe asthma attacks
  2. Lasting damage to the airways
  3. Increased time in the hospital or the emergency department
  4. Missed school or other activities
  5. Prevention
  6. Asthma can’t be completely prevented. 

There are steps you can take to reduce the chance of your child developing asthma. They include:

  • Avoiding secondhand smoke
  • Avoiding air pollution
In most children, asthma flare-ups can be prevented by:

  • Avoiding known triggers
  • Carefully managing symptoms
  • Taking medicines as instructed
  • Living with
  • You can help manage your child’s asthma by:

  • Finding out your child’s triggers and keeping him or her away from them.
  • Giving your child medicine as directed to prevent symptoms.
  • Creating and keeping an Asthma Action Plan.
  • Closely watching asthma signs and symptoms to know when they are getting worse.
  • Knowing what to do when asthma gets worse.
  • Work with your child’s healthcare provider to find the best way to take care of your child’s asthma. There are guidelines for children from newborn to age 4, ages 5 to 11, and ages 12 and older.

The more information a person with asthma has, the better the asthma can be controlled.

When to Call a Healthcare Provider???

Call your child’s healthcare provider if your child’s symptoms are not well-controlled. 

For example, your child is waking at night with symptoms or is having trouble with daily activities.

Call your child’s healthcare provider or get medical help right away if your child has severe 
symptoms. 

These severe symptoms can include trouble:

Breathing
Sleeping
Walking
Talking

Key Points:

  • Asthma is a long-term (chronic) lung disease that causes the airways to swell and make more mucus, and the muscles around the airways to tighten.

  • Asthma symptoms include trouble breathing, wheezing, chest tightness, and coughing.

  • Staying away from those things that cause asthma symptoms (triggers) is an important part of asthma treatment.

  • Medicines are used to prevent and control symptoms during flare-ups.

  • Asthma can cause serious complications if it is not well-controlled.

2. Before your visit, write down questions you want answered.

3. At the visit, write down the name of a new diagnosis, and any new medicines, treatments, or tests.

Family Physician- How to choose one for better health



The famous saying, “Health is Wealth” will never need an explanation. Unfortunately most of us will realize the importance of health when we fall ill, rather it should be otherwise i,e following footsteps of prevention is better than cure.

Mostly major diseases are prevented when found in early stages. For e,g Cancer, when diagnosed at early stages, one can be cured completely.

This article gives you a clear insight about family physician, a.k.a family doctor, who is determined to serve us and can cure from major ailments when approached in time. 

Helping Hand:

Whether you are a part of joint or nuclear family. Having family physician is must.
When we(any of family members) fall ill we rush to hospitals or clinics which are near our residence or offices. Once we are healthy, we rarely think of doctors, hospitals or clinics. Keeping a check on these things may not be helpful in our professional career, they are certainly will be a helping hand for our family.Sometimes, visiting corporate hospitals will prove costly even for a small treatment kind or diagnosis. Its not a fault with you or with hospitals. It’s the corporate hospitals DNA which makes you to spend good amount of money for any treatment,whether its a minor or major one.

Choose one family physician, with good academic and work credentials, and make sure you and your family visit firstly, for any health issues.

Keeping informed him about your family health history, is must. This will help him to provide better treatment and can alarm you from major health issues which can be faced in mere future.


Money Less(wisely) Spent : The consultation charges of family physician are lesser, when compared with corporate hospitals. It is advisable to choose your family physician for any day care treatments.
Its fact, that your health insurance comes into action only when the insurer is hospitalized for minimum of 24 hours. Health insurance should be used for critical diseases diagnosis only, for rest visit family physician clinics. These are also called retail health clinics.

Pre and Post medical care:
Say for e.g if a family member has undergone operational treatment from a hospital, after being referred by your family physician. The post-operational treatment will be carried out from residence itself. This is the time where family physician will be more helpful. He guides, motivates and suggests to improve faster from ill-health. He acts as a Psychological support besides your family members support for a patient.


Say for eg. A person has met with an accident and he has undergone with major and critical surgery. Just experience how much trauma he and his family members would have gone through. Thanks to doctors effort, the patient is out of danger and he will be all set to lead normal life say,after four to six months of bed rest. Once patient resides at home, this creates a tough time for family members to carry out post medical treatment. Right, from keeping patient body fresh to feeding him proper food and giving him medicines on time. At this point , having family physician can help you to come out of this tough time. He can appoint a family nurse who can take care of keeping patient body fresh,and feeding food on time. Family doctor can also appoint family phsiotherapits, who can help patient to carry out his trainings suchas, walking with out support of chair or stick, as suggested by consultant doctor(s).



Health Records:

Keeping a list of family physicians prescriptions is must for every one. These prescriptions will be helpful in framing your own family health history. As like, corporate hospitals ,family physicians often will keep any computer based records.Its our responsibility to take care of these. Make sure, for every visit to your family physician you will carry prescription file/record. Although one may not face same health issues, all time. Keeping a record history will keep you check, on your health as whole. This will help you in framing a better healthy life.



Self Treatment Vs. Family Physician Treatment:

Say a big “NO” for any self treatment, may be its smaller one and can be cured with your knowledge. Fewer times, a look like smaller diseases,when not cured with proper diagnosis will turn to be costly in future when this should be fixed with high end technology equipments.

A Tip to carry your own treatment analysis is,  Keep a record of medical prescriptions written by your family physician. On top or backside of prescription do write for what disease the medicines are given for and also re-write the medicines name (as, doctors handwritten prescriptions are tougher to read and understand). With this activity you and your family members are kept well-informed about the diseases and its treatment.
Make sure you keep a word with your family physician in re-ordering the suggested medicines through earlier prescriptions.

Wishing every one, to have one good family physician and a healthy, wealthy life.

Take Poo to the Loo- Video Song by UNICEF India


UNICEF’s campaign Take Poo to the Loo has brought out the fight against open defecation – onto the streets and online; to industry, government bodies, academia and citizen groups, by roping in the strongest voices in the nation – the Youth. And this youth army now has a rousing mantra – India’s First Poo Song titled “Poo Party”. 

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO :-)



Composed by famous Indo-Jazz music composer, songwriter and producer Shrikanth Sriram (a Dewarist’s  artist who holds stunning compositions like the theme for the movie Life of Pi to his credit ), the song captures the brazenness and audacity of the Poo Man that irks and annoys his listeners. One feels a strong urge to put him in his rightful place by flushing him down the toilet. 

Speaking about the inspiration behind the music, Shri says “Ah Shit! The smell that brings me home very quickly with a thud! I would rather have the smell of Pav Baji bring me home. Anyone trying to do anything about public defecation needs to be supported fully. And the best I can do is to write some music to help.”

Composed  to shake-up and make one take action, the funky and animated song uses  ‘toilet sounds’ to show that if left to grow at its current pace, the disgusting reality of open defecation might multiply to a level where it starts invading your personal space. It might become a truth you wake up to every morning - bombarding your life during the day, and becoming a constant nightmare.  

“With this first poo song in the history of India, we have pushed the boundaries. Never before has open defecation been so visible through new media. This song demonstrates that you can talk about a very serious issue and challenge a deep rooted social norm in an accessible, fun way, and using everyday words common to young people,” states Caroline den Dulk, Chief Advocacy and Communication, UNICEF India.
