Home remedies for sinusitis

Sinus can be very annoying at times, so do not let it take the better of you. Here are some of the natural ways that might help you:

Fenugreek seeds: one of the most effective ways to deal with sinusitis is to drink tea made with fenugreek seeds. It shortens the period of fever and helps your body to perspire. Boil 2 tablespoon of the seeds. Drink it 3-4 times daily and as the condition improves the quantity should be reduced accordingly.

Cumin seeds: another measure is to inhale the steam of cumin seeds tied in a piece of cloth and put it in boiling water. Or an alternative is to take grounded cumin seeds with honey which also helps in relieving the sinus.

Vitamin A rich sources: mango, papaya, egg yoke, pumpkin, leafy vegetables that are rich in vitamin A helps in the treatment and prevention of sinusitis. Vitamin C also proves helpful in the treatment to some extent.

Intake of onion and garlic: increase your intake of onion and garlic. This helps in the movement of the mucus making it less sticky. Black pepper also helps in treating respiratory infections. Vegetable Juice: to a large extent vegetable juice such as carrot juice, beet and spinach juice etc. are beneficial in the treatment.

Australian researchers have discovered a novel and complex visual circuit that turns ON and OFF in a

dragonfly’s brain when processing information about simple dark objects. This finding could help improve

vision system for robots, as it can help solve engineering applications in target detection and tracking.

‘Walking’ sharks, also known as bamboo sharks or longtail carpet sharks, belong to the shark order Orectolobiformes. Rather than swim, they ‘walk’ by wriggling their bodies and pushing with their pectoral and pelvic fins. The newly discovered species, called Hemiscyllium halmahera, reaches 70cm in length.

The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate inthe world. It’s so small that it can hold on to your finger. This cute little primate hugs and grips on to your finger so tight that it pulls your heart strings and you wish you could take it home with you. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They

are also known by the names ‘pocket monkey’ and ‘tinylion’.

Ovarian cancer:

Ovarian cancer is a cancerous growth arising from the ovary. Symptoms are frequently very subtle early on and may include: bloating, pelvic pain, difficulty eating and frequent urination, and are easily confused with other illnesses. Most (more than 90%) ovarian cancers are classified as "epithelial" and are believed to arise from the surface (epithelium) of the ovary. However, some evidence suggests that the fallopian tube could also be the source of some ovarian cancers. Since the ovaries and tubes are closely related to each other, it is thought that these fallopian cancer cells can mimic ovarian cancer. Other types may arise from the egg cells (germ cell tumor) or supporting cells. Ovarian cancers are included in the category gynecologic cancer.

Signs and symptoms:

Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer are frequently absent early on and when they exist they may be subtle. In most cases, the symptoms persist for several months before being recognized and diagnosed. Most typical symptoms include:

bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain, difficulty eating, and possibly urinary symptoms. If these symptoms recently started and occur more than 12 times per month the diagnosis should be considered. Other findings include an abdominal mass, back pain, constipation, tiredness and a range of other non-specific symptoms, as well as more specific symptoms such as abnormal vaginal bleeding or involuntary weight loss.[6] There can be a build-up of fluid (ascites) in the abdominal cavity. Ovarian cancer is associated with age, family history of ovarian cancer (9.8-fold higher risk), anaemia (2.3-fold higher), abdominal pain (sevenfold higher), abdominal distension (23-fold higher), rectal bleeding (twofold higher), postmenopausal bleeding (6.6-fold higher), appetite loss (5.2-fold higher), and weight loss (twofold higher).

Cause:

In most cases, the exact cause of ovarian cancer remains unknown. The risk of developing ovarian cancer appears to be affected by several factors:

Older women who have never given birth, and those who have a first or second degree relative with the disease, have an increased risk.

Hereditary forms of ovarian cancer can be caused by mutations in specific genes (most notably BRCA1 and BRCA2, but also in genes for hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer). Infertile women and those with a condition called endometriosis,and those who use postmenopausal estrogen replacement therapy are at increased risk.

Prevention:

Tubal ligation appears to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer in women who carry the BRCA1 (but not BRCA2) gene. The use of birth control pills decreases the risk of ovarian cancer by about half a percentage point (or about in half in those who are on them for more than 10 years).

Management:

Treatment usually involves chemotherapy and surgery, and sometimes radiotherapy.

Surgery:

Surgical treatment may be sufficient for malignant tumors that are well-differentiated and confined to the ovary. Addition of chemotherapy may be required for more aggressive tumors that are confined to the ovary. For patients with advanced disease a combination of surgical reduction with a combination chemotherapy regimen is standard. Borderline tumors, even following spread outside of the ovary, are managed well with surgery, and chemotherapy is not seen as useful. Surgery is the preferred treatment and is frequently necessary to obtain a tissue specimen for differential diagnosis via its histology. Surgery performed by a specialist in gynecologic oncology usually results in an improved result. Improved survival is attributed to more accurate staging of the disease and a higher rate of aggressive surgical excision of tumor in the abdomen by gynecologic oncologists as opposed to general gynecologists and general surgeons. The type of surgery depends upon how widespread the cancer is when diagnosed (the cancer stage), as well as the presumed type and grade of cancer. The surgeon may remove one (unilateral oophorectomy) or both ovaries (bilateral oophorectomy), the fallopian tubes (salpingectomy), and the uterus (hysterectomy). For some very early tumors (stage 1, low grade or low-risk disease), only the involved ovary and fallopian tube will be removed (called a "unilateral salpingo- oophorectomy," USO), especially in young females who wish to preserve their fertility. In advanced malignancy, where complete resection is not feasible, as much tumor as possible is removed (debulking surgery). In cases where this type of surgery is successful (i.e. < 1 cm in diameter of tumor is left behind ["optimal debulking"]), the prognosis is improved compared to patients where large tumor masses (> 1 cm in diameter) are left behind. Minimally invasive surgical techniques may facilitate the safe removal of very large (greater than 10 cm) tumors with fewer complications of surgery.

Chemotherapy:

Chemotherapy has been a general standard of care for ovarian cancer for decades, although with highly variable protocols. Chemotherapy is used after surgery to treat any residual disease, if appropriate. This depends on the histology of the tumor; some kinds of tumor (particularly teratoma) are not sensitive to chemotherapy. In some cases, there may be reason to perform chemotherapy first, followed by surgery.

Intraperitoneal chemotherapy:

For patients with stage IIIC epithelial ovarian adenocarcinomas who have undergone successful optimal debulking, a recent clinical trial demonstrated that median survival time is significantly longer for patient receiving intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy. Patients in this clinical trial reported less compliance with IP chemotherapy and fewer than half of the patients received all six cycles of IP chemotherapy. Despite this high "drop-out" rate, the group as a whole (including the patients that didn't complete IP chemotherapy treatment) survived longer on average than patients who received intravenous chemotherapy alone. Some specialists believe the toxicities and other complications of IP chemotherapy will be unnecessary with improved IV chemotherapy drugs currently being developed. Although IP chemotherapy has been recommended as a standard of care for the first-line treatment of ovarian cancer, the basis for this recommendation has been challenged, and it has not yet become standard treatment for stage III or IV ovarian cancer.

Radiation therapy:

Radiation therapy is not effective for advanced stages because when vital organs are in the radiation field, a high dose cannot be safely delivered. Radiation therapy is then commonly avoided in such stages as the vital organs may not be able to withstand the problems associated with these ovarian cancer treatments.

The main causes of liver damage are

  • 1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.

  • 2. Not urinating in the morning.

  • 3. Too much eating.

  • 4. Skipping breakfast.

  • 5. Consuming too much medication.

  • 6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

  • 7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which

includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if

the body is very fit.

  • 8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.

Fried veggies should be finished inone sitting, do not store. We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'
