Celiac Disease-Sign and symptoms-Clinical Presentation-Treatment-Sprue

Celiac disease is a disease of the digestive system. what is affected by the celiac disease? our intestine has villi. villi are finger-like projections in the inner surface of the small intestine. Villi have further microscopic finger-like projections called microvilli. These villi and microvilli greatly increase the surface area of the small intestine and these are responsible for absorption of nutrients. In celiac disease, these villi are affected and get damaged. and the person shows the sign and symptoms of diarrhoea abdominal pain etc (explained later) Why These Villi are affected? Celiac disease is a disease of malabsorption ( nutrients are not absorbed properly ) and autoimmune response to gluten. Gluten is a substance found in wheat rye and barley. when a person with celiac disease eats such food. the immune system of the body reacts with gluten and try to destroy it but in this process the microvilli also destroy, and this results in malabsorption and symptoms li

Reiki - The Spiritual Healing - Dr Moiz Hussain

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy"  flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

Nutrient Rich Canned Milk Cause obesity in babies\children. Research.

A UK study reveals that those children who are given canned and formula milk from 5 to 8 year of age are at high risk of developing obesity.   Researchers added that These children not only get the extra weight but they also become prone to hypertension, Diabetes and heart problems in their later lives. A careful estimation by scientists reveals that children on formula milk diet gain 22 - 38 per cent more weight than the children who take the normal natural diet. So Choice is yours 1. Formula milk 2. Natural milk/diet. In view of the above information, it is clear that obesity may occur in children as well. Formula milk and unnatural diet is the major culprit behind this issue. Therefore, children should be made to eat a natural diet instead of artificial formula milk.

Thyroid Diseases - Brief Understandable Introduction.

Thyroid diseases are common nowadays. These are not rare diseases anymore. What is Thyroid? Thyroid is a gland situated bellow the Adam's apple. It releases hormones called T3 (tri-iodothyronine) and T4 (tetra-iodothyronine or thyroxine) . Function of T3 and T4: (briefly described) T3 and T4 are metabolism enhancers, they increase the basal metabolism  rate, heat production, heart rate, sweating and their normal levels are necessary to maintain a balance of catabolism (breakdown process in order to release energy) and anabolism (production of new molecules, proteins or other substances) of tissues. In normal persons the blood level of T3 and T4 is under  the control of TSH ( thyroid stimulating hormone, released by brain  pituitary). S o if T3 or T4 concentration increases in blood TSH decreases and thyroid decreases their production. but sometimes this control is lost due to disease in the thyroid or disease in pituitary (brain origin) and these condition results in

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - COPD - Brief explaination

COPD is a respiratory disorder. in which a patient feels difficulty in breathing, exhaustion, and apprehension. As the name suggests, in this disease there is an obstruction in the air pathway. Possible Reasons for obstruction.: 1. dirt, 2, pollution 3, smoking 4. allergy 5. Repetitive respiratory  infections most common causative agents are dust, pollution and smoking Brief Mechanism: the harmful chemicals in smoking, dust etc enter the lungs and destroy the air sacs so there will be less surface area available for gaseous exchange and it will lead to quick exhaustion. moreover, the dirt and chemicals will cause increase mucous production in the airway which causes obstruction or narrowing of air pathway. it will again cause difficulty in breathing.

Prefer Healthy Diet - Red onion helps prevent heart, cancer diseases

Researchers at the Chinese University in Hong Kong found that red onion helps remove bad cholesterol from the body which is responsible for heart attacks and strokes. It also retains the body's good cholesterol that in turn helps protect against heart disease, For their study, the scientists fed crushed-up  red onions to hamsters who had all been put on a high-cholesterol diet. They found that after eight weeks, levels of bad cholesterol, or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), had dropped by an average of 20 per cent. Onions have long been known to have many health benefits including preventing cancer, heart disease and common coughs and colds. It has been found that some parts of the world where onion consumption is high have even been shown to have much lower cancer rates. Onions have been used in salad formation in Asian countries since long ago. 

Sleeping in light may cause obesity - Research

Sleeping with lights on could lead to significant weight gain, suggests new research. This weight gain may be attributed to the disruption of the normal light-dark cycle that regulates meal time. Scientists at  Ohio State University conducted experiments with three groups of mice. One group was subjected to 16 hours of standard light and 8 hours of darkness. The second group was exposed to 16 hours of  standard light and 8 hours of dim light  And the third group was immersed in standard light for  24 hours a day. When these mice were allowed to eat all they wanted for eight weeks, all of them gained weight, but the group that experienced 8 hours of darkness gained the least. The reason for the difference turned out to be the timing of the feedings. While all mice consumed similar amounts of food and had the same amount of exercise, those that were exposed to darkness ate less during the day—a period reserved for sleep for these nocturnal animals. The scientists subsequently conf

Body Building Requires Positive Nitrogen Balance, Protein Diet, Supplements and Vitamins

Bodybuilding is a well-known game and followed by youth worldwide. It is not simple to get toned and well-developed muscles. It is important that you are doing enough workout and getting enough proteins and vitamins to build the extra amount of muscles required for lifting heavy weights. Positive Nitrogen Balance The nitrogen balance must be positive in order to build muscles. Muscles are made up of proteins. Proteins are made up of amino acids. Amino acids release nitrogen when they are metabolized. this released nitrogen is converted to urea by the liver and excreted in urine. If there is less nitrogen in urine than the amount of nitrogen ingested it means there is positive nitrogen balance and the amino acids taken in the diet are used in building muscles. so achievement of Positive nitrogen balance is necessary for bodybuilding. it can be achieved by 1. heavier workout 2. Taking protein rich diet and supplements 3. taking adequate amount of vitamins ( because vit
