What Is Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

An attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is also known as ADHD, generally attacks children, teenagers and can even be found in adults. People affected by ADHD usually act without perception and show traits of hyperactivity.  Furthermore, people suffering from this mental disorder have trouble focusing.

What Is Cancer

Cancer is essentially when there is an abnormal growth of cells in any part of the body. Typically, the body forms new cells to replace the ones that die. When new cells start growing even if you don’t really need them and the old cells don’t die, the extra cells may form a mass known as a tumour (leukaemia is an exception, as in this case cancer prohibits the normal functioning due to the abnormal division of cells in the bloodstream.

These tumours are classified as benign or malignant. Benign tumours are those that remain in one spot and do not grow. These tumours are not cancerous, whereas malignant ones are cancerous. The cells from malignant tumours spread via the lymphatic or blood systems and attack the neighbouring healthy tissues. These cancerous cells may also break away and spread to other parts of the body.

There are over 100 kinds of cancers and cancer can affect any part of the body. Most of the cancers are named after the part of the body where they originate. For instance, if it starts from the lung, it is known as lung cancer, etc. and when cancer spreads from one part of the body to another, it is known as metastasis.

There are broadly 5 groups of cancers:

  • Carcinomas: They occur in cells that cover the external and internal parts of the body such as colon, breast and lung cancer.
  • Sarcomas: These are caused in the cells located in the cartilage, bone, connective tissue, muscle, fat and other supportive tissues.
  • Lymphomas: These cancers usually begin in the immune system tissues and lymph nodes.
  • Adenomas: These are cancers that originate in the pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal gland and other glandular tissues.
  • Leukaemia:  These cancers begin in the bone marrow and accrue in the bloodstream. 

What Is Depression

  • It refers to the state of low mood or dislikes towards an activity that can affect an individual’s behaviour, thoughts, feelings and overall health. There is a feeling of severe dejection despondency. The degree of depression and the type of depression varies from a person to person. It is very important to seek professional help to get rid of depression. 

What Is Eye Health

Having healthy eyes with good vision and without having any symptoms or pain is extremely important to your overall health and wellbeing. Many eye problems are benign such as dry eyes, redness or mild irritation in the eyes, near-sightedness etc.; however, other conditions such as macular degeneration and glaucoma are more serious and can lead to loss of vision and even blindness.

Some of the common eye diseases and problems are:

  • Dry eyes
  • Eye allergies, redness or irritation in the eyes
  • Tiredness of eyes, pain around the eyes
  • Refractive errors (near-sightedness or myopia, farsightedness or hyperopia, astigmatism (blurry vision), presbyopia (inability to focus on close objects))
  • Retinal diseases (retinal tear or retinal detachment), cataract
  • Optical neuritis (optic nerve inflammation)
  • Glaucoma, macular degeneration
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Eye problems due to diabetes (diabetic macular edema and diabetic retinopathy)

What Is Fatty liver

The 2nd largest organ in your body is the liver, whose function is to process all the things we eat and drink and eliminate the harmful substances. The normal functioning of the liver gets interrupted if there is too much of fat in the liver.

The presence of some fat in the liver is quite normal. However, if the fat comprises around 5-10% of the weight of the liver, then you may be suffering from fatty liver disease, which is also known as hepatic steatosis. The condition of fatty liver is reversible and with lifestyle changes, it can be resolved.

There are essentially 2 kinds of fatty liver disease – ALD or alcoholic liver disease and NAFLD or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease can also occur when you are pregnant.

NAFLD occurs when the liver has problems in processing the fats, which causes the fat to build-up in the liver. This occurs when the percentage of fat in the liver is more than 10%. The early stage of ALD is alcoholic fatty liver and this because of the damage caused to the liver due to heavy drinking. Avoiding alcohol for a period of around 6 weeks can cause the fats in the liver to disappear. However, continuing the drinking can lead to liver cirrhosis. 

What Is Asthma

  • Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the airways in the lungs. Asthma can either be allergic (most common) or non-allergic.
  • Allergic asthma is due to an allergic response known as a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction. People with asthma’s airways are hypersensitive to certain triggers. The allergic reaction causes narrowing of the small airways and leads to "air trapping" (known as an obstructive airway disease)
  • There are different types of asthma- childhood onset asthma (usually before the age of 5), adult-onset asthma, exercise-induced asthma and aspirin induced asthma. Some asthma is known as seasonal asthma and occurs only at certain times of the year, usually with the changing of seasons such as during autumn or spring.
  • Asthma is diagnosed with lung function tests. A spirometer or a PEFM (Peak Expiratory Flow Meter) is used in conjunction with a bronchodilator. The meter is used to assess your lung function before and after inhaling a fast-acting bronchodilator. A diagnosis of asthma is made when there is an improvement in lung function of more than 20% (PEFM) or more than 12%(when using a spirometer) after the bronchodilator is inhaled.
  • Asthma is diagnosed when a patient has suggestive symptoms and a positive bronchodilator test.

What Is Immunity building

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

What Is Anaemia

  • In Anaemia, lesser oxygen is carried around the body by red blood cells. Anemia can be of different types.

What Is Common cold

The common cold is simply referred to as cold as well. The common cold is a contagious disease caused by viruses. It occurs in the upper part of the respiratory tract which affects mainly the nose. The body parts that may get affected by common cold are voice box, sinus, and throat. Symptoms and signs of the common cold may start to appear within two days after the exposure to the virus.The common cold is accompanied by a headache, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, coughing and sometimes fever as well. Generally, it might take a week to 10 days in the recovery. Some of the symptoms can stay even for three weeks. When the symptoms of common cold worsen, it can turn into Pneumonia.

The force of around 200 viruses is involved for causing the common cold. A virus known as rhinovirus is the most prevalent cause of common cold. Common cold vaccines are not yet available. The antidote of the common cold is also not yet made but relieve to the patients can be provided by treating the symptoms.

In humans, the common cold is one of the most reoccurring infectious diseases. Averagely, an adult may suffer from cold from a couple of times to four times in a year. Cold occurs mainly in winters. 

What Is Diarrhoea

  • Diarrhoea is an increased frequency of bowel movements (stools) and also increased looseness of the motion. Diarrhoea can be due to higher fluid secretion into the intestine, minimal fluid absorption by the intestines or swift passage of stool from the intestine.
  • Acute Diarrhoea stays for 4 to 5 days but the chronic Diarrhoea can last up to 4 weeks. Recurrent and severe Diarrhoea can be a sign of an intestinal disease. 

What Is Infertility

Infertility is a medical condition where a woman is unable to conceive or get pregnant despite one year or longer of unprotected sex. Women or men or both of the partners can be having infertility. If a woman is having infertility disorder then it is termed as female infertility and if men are having infertility disorder then it is termed as male infertility.

Types of infertility

Infertility is divided into two parts:

  • Primary fertility: Primary infertility refers to those who have never been able to get pregnant or conceive a child at least after 1 year of regular unprotected sex
  • Secondary fertility: Secondary infertility refers to those couples who are now unable to conceive after conceiving once.

Exposure to Toxins:

Mothers who smoke or drink alcohol and other toxic substances during pregnancy can affect the development of their unborn child as well. Such substances have been found to develop hyperactivity in children from an early age.

Brain Injury

Brain injuries can lead to poor functioning of the motor activity in people.
 

What Are The Causes Of Cancer

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

What Are The Causes Of Immunity building

Causes of reduced immunity can either be intrinsic/ hereditary or acquired.

Intrinsic or primary immunodeficiencies are inborn genetic errors. There are more than hundred different types and forms of primary immunodeficiency syndromes described. These include immunodeficiency syndromes such as selective IgA deficiency, DiGeorge syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.

Secondary or acquired immunodeficiency states can be due to diseases or conditions such as:

Systemic disorders:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Malnutrition or being underweight
  • Auto-immune disorders

Medications or substances:

  • Long-term corticosteroid use
  • Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) used in auto-immune diseases like inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis. Chemotherapy or radiation.

Physiological states:

  • Pregnancy is a normal physiological state of lowered immunity.
  • Ageing is also a natural process that causes lowered immunity.

What Are The Causes Of Anaemia

  • Deficiency of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin B 12, sickle cell anemia (a genetic blood disorder) or kidney disease can be amongst few causes of anemia.
  • The type of food you eat also affects the absorption of iron and folic acid.

What Are The Causes Of Common cold

  • The common cold is the infection causes in the upper-respiratory tract. It is caused by the attack of the viruses. It is a myth that not wearing enough cloth in winters or cold weather causes the cold. Some of the ways one can catch infections are as follows:

  • Close contact with an infected person.
  • Using the personal belongings of a person suffering from the common cold like the towel, clothes, etc.
  • A mild infection may be caused in adults by three types of viruses responsible foe cold. However, in old people, children, and individuals with a weak immune system it can cause serious lower respiratory tract problem. Also, patients with heart and lung diseases, asthmatic patients, and premature babies are at a higher risk of getting the complications like pneumonia and bronchitis. 

What Are The Causes Of Diarrhoea

  • The main cause is the virus that infects gut. However various other causes are an allergy to a food, alcohol, diabetes, diabetes to the intestines, medications, Laxatives, radiation therapy, running, surgery, cancers, troublesome nutrition absorption.

  • Reduce or eliminate your consumption of sugar and sugary foods and beverages like sports drinks, soft drinks, etc. as sugar boosts the insulin and suppresses the immune system and also feeds the cancer cells.
  • Reduce or eliminate processed meats that are smoked, cured salted or preserved like sausages, hot dogs, bacon, lunch meats, etc. as they increase the risk of cancer. 
  • Avoid creamy dressings, sauces and dips as they are high in calories and can cause weight gain.
  • Avoid red meat as these meats increase the risk of cancer.
  • Avoid genetically modified (GMO) foods as they will worsen the effects of cancer.
  • Avoid soybean oil or corn oil as these can suppress the immune system further, especially if the oils are hydrogenated. 
  • Avoid drinking alcohol as it can cause liver, oesophageal and breast cancer.

What Are The Worst Foods For Depression

Food that can contribute to depression are;

  • Refined Sugar causes a hike in the glucose levels that disturbs the mood, drains energy and causes sleep disturbances
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Processed foods
  • Hydrogenated oils
  • Food with high sodium content can affect the neurological system and thus enhance depression
  • Alcohol is a Central Nervous System Depressant
  • Caffeine causes sleeplessness, agitation, nervousness, depression and anxiety.    

What Are The Worst Foods For Eye Health

  • Sugar and sugary foods are linked to poor eyesight, especially if you suffer from diabetes, it can lead to eye problems due to insulin response affecting metabolism. 
  • Avoid saturated and trans fats as these cause inflammations in the body and result in poor eyesight. Avoid cakes, cookies, crackers and other baked products, fried foods like chips, French fries, etc.
  • Avoid sweetened beverages as they contain added sugars like fructose corn syrup that cause poor eye health.

  • Pickles
  • Eggs (for children, as some children are allergic to eggs)
  • Peanuts
  • Excessive salt in food
  • Oily, fatty foods

What Are The Worst Foods For Immunity building

  • Sugar and refined carbohydrates. High glycemic index carbohydrates and sugar wreak havoc on your body's immune system, by causing insulin spikes and blood sugar surges, increasing inflammation and lowering immunity.
  • Processed foods especially high in colourants, preservatives and chemicals all increase inflammation and lower immunity.
  • Foods high in saturated fatty acids.
  • Excessive alcohol intake reduces white blood cells in the immune system after long term use.

What Are The Worst Foods For Anaemia

  • Junk food.
  • Coffee, tea, red wine as these inhibit the absorption of iron.

  • Desserts

What Are The Worst Foods For Common cold

Some of the foods to cut down to curb common cold and its symptoms are as follows:

  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages: Immunity of one’s body gets weakened by alcohol, also body experiences dehydration. Such conditions make one even more vulnerable to common cold. So, one should not consume alcohol, especially in a hefty amount to prevent the common cold. Some of the beverages to avoid are beer, wine, tequila, vodka, and whiskey.
  • Dairy Products: The Dairy product should be cut down during the common cold, as consuming dairy items may worsen the mucus formation. Excessive mucus causes the common cold to irritate even more. Some of the dairy products that one should avoid completely are milkshakes, cold coffee, milk ice creams, butter, cheese, yoghurt, cream, pudding, and other milk desserts.
  • Packed Juices: When one is suffering from the common cold he/she must stay away from packed fruit juices as they consist of high amount of added sugar. Sugar decreases the efficiency of WBC to fight against infections. The Vitamin C benefits from the packed juice are cancelled by excessive sugar present in them.

Food to be consumed for preventing and treating common cold are as follows: 

  • Hydrating fluids: Dried out nasal passage and throat can encourage the growth and survival of flu and cold germs. Hence, it is important to consume lots of fluid all the time to maintain the moisture of mucous membrane. The moist mucous membrane can trap the germs easily and does not let them enter the respiratory system. Then these viruses can be blown out or can be ingested in the digestive system. These viruses get killed by the acids in the stomach; hence do not let one fall sick. Keep oneself well-hydrated not just prevent the common cold but also, pacify the symptoms. When one suffering from strep throat, he/she can mix a little honey in warm water to get some relief.  Some of the fluids one can consume are fresh fruit juices (especially rich in vitamin C, water, and decaffeinated tea.)  One’s goal should be the consumption of 8-10 glasses of fluid or water.

Chicken soup consumption may increase the body temperature, which is favourable for the viruses; hence chicken soup eliminates the viruses from the body. Also, hot chicken soup melts down the mucus and eases the symptoms of common cold. Try homemade chicken soup as it is better than packed ones. Chicken soup has elements that may boost up one’s immunity, which rather helps them to fight with cold causing viruses.
  • Garlic: Garlic has an element known as allicin, which has antimicrobial properties. Hence, it helps to safeguard the body from fungi, viruses, and bacteria. One can chew a raw clove after every few hours, or it can be added to other food items like chicken soup.
  • Vitamin C rich foods: The most common element found in citrus fruits is vitamin C. It acts as an antioxidant, which may decrease the symptoms of common cold up to 23%. According to a study 1-8 grams of vitamin C is sufficient to work on the symptoms of common cold. This particular quantity of vitamin C can be obtained from certain vegetables like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli and red bell-peppers, Brussel sprouts, and citrus fruits.
  • Ginger: Ginger not only relieves the itchiness of the throat; it also helps to kill the cause of the infection A chemical known as sesquiterpenes is present in ginger. This compound particularly attacks the rhinoviruses, which is one of the major causes of a common cold. 
  • Honey: Honey is known for its miraculous benefits for various health issues. The common cold is also one of the problems that can be treated by the consumption of honey. Honey is packed with a lot of antioxidants and also has antimicrobial properties, which make it a perfect element to fight common cold causing viruses. It forms a coating on one’s throat helping to soothe the symptom of a sore throat as well as it has healing properties that contribute to healing the sore throat.
