So, would you like the good news first or the bad news?

…The good news is people are now consuming more water than soda! Yay!!
Now the bad news, the bottled water that you think is “awesome”, may not be safe and awesome. Just purifying the water from water supply at home may be a far cheaper and safer option…

Hotflashes! O! Those night sweats!!

Posted by on 6:37 pm in Tip of the week | Comments Off on Hotflashes! O! Those night sweats!!

Menopause is no fun. While taking care of so many of you all out there suffering from those miserable hot flashes, I started looking for some solution to track them. There are tons of ways to track fertility and periods but nothing to objectively track MENOPAUSE. I came across this wonderful app. I encourage all those women suffering from the miseries of menopause to track and record their symptoms.

This will also help your doctor and you yourself to track response to natural or medical hormone replacement as well. Here’s the link. I am also placing the link on the Useful links page.

Menopause tracker

Stay cool and tuned for more…

Dr. Gupta talks about the good, the bad and the ugly about Tampons. How safe are tampons? How scary or not scary are they?

 

Q: What are the most common ingredients in Tampon?

Most brand name widely available tampons contain, rayon, cotton and a polyester coating for the absorbent core.

The strings may be polyester or cotton and the applicator may be plastic or cardboard.

They may contain also fragrances and/ or odor neutralizers.

Q: Are the tampon ingredients harmful?

The cotton fibers need to be bleached before manufacturing, for which purpose, chlorine may be used. There is a doubt but no clear evidence that the bleaching with chlorine may cause release of a toxin called dioxin, which if absorbed into blood stream may cause cellular damage. Unfortunately, there are no clear, in vivo ( human) studies to show the amount of absorption of dioxin or polypropylene from the … Read More »

Birth Control Questions answered…

I missed my pill….

Which Birth Control should I use?

 

  • What should I do if I miss a pill?– If you miss one pill, double up the next day. If you miss two pills, double up for the next two days. If you miss three pills, throw the pack away and use condoms; start a new pack on your next cycle.

PELVIC FLOOR THERAPY FOR INCONTINENCE

 

What is biofeedback or pelvic floor therapy for urine incontinence?

 

Biofeedback takes information about something happening in the body and presents it in a way that you can see or hear and understand. Getting on a scale to check your weight or having your blood pressure taken are very simple examples of biofeedback, which can be used to measure any body response such as heart rate or muscle contraction and relaxation.

In biofeedback, the measurement can be displayed on a computer screen or heard as a tone and used to learn about a subtle body function.

 

Who needs Bio-feedback therapy?

  1. Urine leakage while coughing, sneezing, running or any other physical exertion.
  2. Pelvic muscle weakness after child birth.

  4. Menopause related muscle weakness and lack of bladder control.
  5. Early stage bladder or
