Vaginal Hygiene {Women Stuff}

 Republished on 14th September, 2016

This is one topic I have been thinking for long to write but was too shy to write 😀 Whether you are married or not, you need to take care of your hygiene. Anyways, lets get on with it.

Hairlessness

Pubic hair is actually a protection for the sensitive area but unfortunately, it also increases the unhygienic conditions. So, its best to get rid of it. Shaving is one of the easiest, painless and safest ways to get rid of the hair.

Brazilian wax is a good alternative if you have the courage to bear the pain. Avoid hair removal creams as they are very harsh on the skin and can cause itching or any other infection.

Make sure its dry

After a bath, when you don the undergarments, make sure that the area is entirely dry. Also, whenever you use the wash room, you can take care that to let the area be dry and undergarments do not get wet. Panty liners are a good choice if you have the issue of discharge.

5 daily tasks which Stress you without your realizing them {Five Series}

Republished on 12th September, 2016

Like all working couples, we often get very minimal quality time with each other so we took a weekend off from everything including our house and spent the time in a cozy resort. But, still, it was not the least refreshing for us. That made me think what is wrong with me?

And, then, there was a dawning realization, may be the short vacation we took was really not well-planned which stressed me out! Yes, it was an adhoc event which just happened and I was really happy it happened but I would have been more happy if everything went according to me.

Yes, I know its making me sound like a control freak and probably I am one but this is just an example of what can be wrong with even a simple thing of taking a holiday from our regular life. So, stress can really creep up on to our lives in ways we can NOT imagine. It has really become a part of us now a days.

Technology

This makes me soooo happy to say this out loud, “Guys, lose your phone sometimes,let the laptop crash, get sometime for yourself”. And, of course, sad at the same instant because I can not do that whenever I want. No, not because I have a blog to run but because I can not stay away from the blog.

Knee Problems – How you are Damaging your Knees?

vitamin deficiency, chronic fatigue, healthy living, knee problems

Old age is equivalent to knee problems most of the times. Mostly, it is the female population who suffer from the issue because of the excess physical strain which they undergo in their lives. Pregnancy contributes a lot to how a female ages and what problems she might suffer in the late 50’s.

In fact, it is even possible for teenagers of 15 to have conditions like arthritis which might develop into rheumatoid arthritis in the later stage of life. Not having regular physical exercise is one of the starting points of knee troubles. Let us discuss how you can take care of your knees with some basic lifestyle changes.

How are you causing your knee problems?

1. Not Controlling Your Weight

Being overweight is a bad thing not only for your heart but for your knees as well. Make sure that you do not put on unnecessary weight. Using stairs is a good exercise to lose weight and keep your knees in good condition.

But, if you suffer from knee pain, are overweight, are middle-aged (age wears off the knee tissues and puts more strain on them), exercising can be painful. In such a case, walking on plain surfaces, using treadmills or stationary bikes are great exercises. Taking care of your diet is a better way to control weight.

How does Dental Hygiene reflect your overall Health?

dental hygiene

Often the most understated practices in our health is dental hygiene. Neither we make regular trips to a dentist’s chair nor we like being told how to brush our teeth although it is well documented that oral health has a link to our overall health.

Pregnant ladies are recommended to schedule regular dental appointments to make sure they do not suffer from any gum problems. Gingivitis can grow acute during pregnancy. Other gum problems can lead to preterm or low birth weight infants. Not only gum problems affect pregnant ladies but it can make other health conditions worse.

Dental Hygiene and Relation to Other Diseases

Bad dental hygiene makes it harder to control Blood Sugar levels

Gum inflammation and periodontal disease can make it difficult to control the blood sugar levels and make you prone to diabetes. On the other hand, diabetic people must be careful with their oral health as they are more prone to periodontal diseases.

Bad dental hygiene means more infections and inflammations

There is a link between gum disease and development of rheumatoid arthritis. Gum diseases can also lead to lung infections, especially pneumonia.

Bad dental hygiene leads to Heart Risks

The bacteria which causes gum inflammation can travel to the arteries of the heart through the blood stream. It can cause hardening of the arteries by depositing plaque on the walls leading to thickening of the walls and reduced blood flow which in turn may cause heart stroke.

The best critical illness insurance in India

vitamin deficiency, chronic fatigue, healthy living

Let’s understand which are the most common critical illnesses in India?

  • Heart Attack
  • Kidney Failure which may lead to an Organ Transplant or dialysis
  • Paralysis
  • Various types of cancer
  • Burn injuries

If we consider the cost of managing these illnesses, it seems beyond the reach of a common man. Costs of regular dialysis can range between Rs.50 thousand-2 lakhs depending upon the city and the severity of the condition.

If the condition requires a kidney transplant, costs range between Rs.4-7 lakhs. A heart bypass surgery, medically known as CABG(Coronory Artery Bypass Grafting) costs anywhere between Rs.1.3 lakhs to 3 lakhs depending upon the kind of hospital and the city in which you are getting it done.

The above are actually only hospitalization costs. What about the impact of being unable to work due to the recovery process? Is that even considered? The answer is ‘no’! That is not covered by mediclaim. Recovery from a critical illness may take around 2 months or so to actually be fit enough to take the stress of hectic work, travel, etc. If you’ve undergone a kidney transplant, it may take you even longer around 2 to 6 months to recover. If you are the breadwinner for the family, you you may end up exhausting all your lifetime savings in order to make ends meet.
