ASTHMA – MIDNIGHT MALADY?

Asthma, that dreaded disease is said to be on the rise, perhaps due to increased air pollution.While an attack of asthma can occur at any time, sufferers feel that symptoms are much worse at night.

Based on these reports, doctors at the University of Texas have set up a “night owl” research team which specializes in investigating nocturnal asthma.Their findings confirm what the patients have been saying all long – the body’s airways become narrower at night, making breathing difficult. Levels of hormones and body chemicals change considerably during the night and more asthma related deaths occur than during the day.

The researchers are now taking a new look at treatments for this ailment, and evolving modified drugs for night time  use.

If your asthma symptoms are different at night or if your day time medication doesn’t work for you in late hours, do mention it to your doctor.

MYTH

FAIRNESS CREAMS TURN DARK SKINS FAIR

 

The only change so far wrought by these creams has been in the bank accounts of their manufacturers. To date, says dermatologist Rekha Sheth, medical science has found no way to turn dark skins fair.The color of your skin is determined by the pigment producing cells called melanocytes present in the upper layer of the skin. In the dark skinned persons, the production rate of melanocytes is higher and their number may be marginally more, than in the fairer skinned. This is genetically determined; but factors like uv radiation from the sun, hormonal imbalances, skin disordered, prolonged illness, certain medications and some perfume based cosmetics can increase the production of the melanocytes causing hyper pigmentation. Such hyper pigmentation can be reduced by a hydroquinone based medication prescribed by a skin specialist and used under strict medical supervision. Hydroquinone stabilizes the production of melanin i.e brings it down to normal levels, but it cannot bring melanin production to below normal levels, and that is why it cannot make your skin lighter than its genetically determined color.

So called fairness creams also use hydroquinone. But hydroquinone used on normal skins, far from turning them fair, can even cause adverse reactions, ranging from allergic reactions dryness, itching, burning, peeling and redness to leucoderma(milky white patches resulting from the destruction of melanocytes.) With prolonged, indiscriminate use, these patches could even appear on parts of the body where the cream is not being used.

While there is no cure for dark skins, there is prevention. Dark skins tan more easily than do fair skins, and keeping out of the sun is the most important step you can take to keep down melanin production.

But the bottom line of course is that the glow that comes from a healthy skin can put the milkiest-white complexion in the shade.

And two more bonus points : The higher rate of melanin production in the dark skins provides increased protection from the sun’s uv rays which means slower skin aging and much lower risk of skin cancer.

JUST EXHAUST-ED

                                        HEALTH FLASH

Heart patients who exercise outdoors and deep-bretahe polluted city air are likely to do themselves harm, say researchers at the University of North Carolina. To study effects of polluted air on heart activity, 41 heart patients were first asked to work out for an hour on a busy city street where air was polluted with car exhaust fumes etc.The they worked out on stationary bikes in clean indoor air.

On day two of the experiment, they spent an hour in clean air and then did their bike exercise.

Comparing data, researchers found that dirty air increased the bikers arrhythmia that is, irregular heart beats – significantly.More arrhythmia means increased risk of heart attack.

Heart patients or not, everone should try to exercise in clean air. If you can find some!

BEHAVIOUR

We do not what we ought;

what we ought not, we do;

And lean upon the thought

That chance will bring us through;

But our own acts, for good or ill,

Are mightier powers.

Conduct is three-fourths of our life and

its largest concern.

Do not do unto others as you would they

should do unto you.

Their tastes may not be the same.

If all the good people were clever,

And all clever people were good.

The world would be nicer than ever,

we thought that it possibly could.

But somehow, it’s seldom or never.

The two his off as they should;

The good are so harsh to the clever,

The clever so rude to the good!

You know dear what makes you special !!

You are the most beautiful flower in the garden of my life. You understand when i am too busy.And you know that what i mean about BUSY word.:) You bring sunshine into my life.You have always able to make me laugh and help me unwind.I can speak my heart out to you.You know how to emotionally blackmail me but you never succeed in that part..You point out when i look like an idiot.Going out with you never needs a reason or an occasion.We just go on and on till our shoes get disheveled.

I can freely discuss the topics which i cannot discuss with any one else. You are a true reflection of me. You have more faith in me than i do in myself.You never need a clarification because you know that my clarification will be nowhere related to the question you have asked for. You know how to give surprises and i love your handmade gifts than any valuable item in this world.I can be very comfortable with you.

You and I are the only elements that will ever hold together.

You are my nazil… No one can take your position in my heart you have made a cozy place in my heart. Thank you everything dear…

                                                                                                  Yours lovingly,

                                                                                                        chinky…

MOTHER’S ETERNAL LOVE

mother

 

What is Motherhood? Besides a mother no one can describe it. For the first time when she comes to know that she is going to have a child , at that moment she resolute to be the best mother in this world.It is then Love embarks and day by day it thrives. That love is completely immaculate and pristine. She is afraid that her chafe may trouble her little one inside and try to avoid even a minute stress.

As days pass by the little one inside grows eventually nourishing on the food  she provides and the day comes when she feels little one inside her. She rejoice that moment, tears roll down her cheeks. That is when she feels her motherhood. That is an anomalous feel.

Finally the day comes. ‘The Day of Parturition’. It is almost like a day of resurrection for her. The pain she suffers to let her child enter this  world is incomparable to any other pain. She bears the pain all alone, strives hard and delivers her baby. A life comes into an existence.

She holds the child and embrace. Her eyes filled with tears. And that petty thing you find in her eyes is “ETERNAL LOVE”.

A child is Mother’s Insignia…..
