Cervicitis is the most common gynecological disorder found among women irrespective of the age factor.

Any woman who has one sexual encounter and has experienced abdominal pain or any unusual vaginal discharge could be affected by it. 

Cervicitis Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Cervicitis does not yield to self-diagnosis because its symptoms can lead to confusion about other ailments such as vaginitis. 

If cervicitis is not treated it can lead to problems in conceiving or delivering a healthy baby. 

Cervicitis can be easily diagnosed by your Gynaecologist with a variety of drugs and procedures.

What is Cervicitis?

It is the inflammation of the cervix- the lower part of the uterus that extends about an inch into the vaginal canal. 

Usually, cervicitis results due to infection although it could also be caused by an injury or irritation that could be the result of chemicals in contraceptives or forgotten tampon.

Cervicitis Symptoms

The first symptom of cervicitis could be a vaginal discharge that becomes more pronounced after your menstrual cycle. 

Other symptoms include bleeding, itching, or irritation of any of the external genitals, pain during intercourse, a burning sensation during urination, or lower back pain. 

If it is mild, then you might not notice any symptoms at all. In a serious form, it could cause a profuse, discharge with an unpleasant odor along with intense vaginal itchiness or abdominal pain. If this infection gets into your system then it may cause fever and nausea.

If it lasts for a long time then it could even lead to pregnancy because this abnormal mucus production interferes with the ability of the sperm to enter the cervical canal, but this infection could also spread to the uterus or fallopian tube leading to the ovaries. 

It is important to visit your Gynaecologist when you experience pain or unusual discharge because many times, cervicitis can be confused with signs of other disorders. 

The problem could be an infection of the vulva, uterus, fallopian tubes or urinary tract or could also be a sign of another cervical condition called cervical erosion. 

Cervical Erosion of the cervix is caused when the cervical surface layer is partially or completely missing. 

It is the result of the body’s normal defense system or whenever there is some injury, infection, irritation or when white blood cells are mobilized, the blood circulation within the area increases.

Cervicitis Treatment 

If untreated then it could also lead to risks such as miscarriage, premature delivery, infection of her newborn during delivery also leading to pneumonia or severe eye infection, or even blindness. 

Antibiotics successfully treat cervicitis in most cases. For some  Cervicitis, your Doctor may suggest laser therapy or surgery.

Some Alternative Natural Care like Ayurveda and Chinese herbal medicines are used in many places too for the treatment of Cervicitis. One of the Natural probiotics is Yogurt, which seems to be very popular in Asian Countries as a medicinal food to treat Cervicitis.

The cervix which is of pale pink and smooth becomes red and swollen. Your Gynaecologist may recommend you a biopsy if the cervix seems to be abnormal or colposcopy, another diagnostic technique.

We wish all a Happy Mother's Day  

Being parents is a hard enough job without having good relaxing sleep. It's called sleep deprivation.  

Most parents find that they have to survive on less sleep. 

The glorious day when the baby sleeps right through the night can never come too soon. 

Babies who nap through the day and then cry at night wreak havoc with their parents' sleeping patterns. 

Strategies to try to cope with babies and sleeping habits.

  • If you are able to, it's a good idea to sleep when the baby does. 
  • Unplug the phone, put a do not disturb sign on the door, and snooze along with junior.
  • At nighttime, a warm bath can help to make the baby sleepy, so time bath time just before putting the baby down.
  • Babies and sleeping routines are important, so bedtime needs to be about the same time every night, but don't be a slave to it.

  • Sometimes, the baby wakes up crying for no apparent reason. They are dry, just been fed and you can't think what could be wrong. 
  • At other times, the reason may be that they are teething or have colic. 
  • If you have exhausted all possibilities, they may be satisfied with a hug. 
  • Unfortunately, babies and sleeping don't always go together.
  • Babies need a quiet environment and not be cold or too warm. There are things that may calm them if they are anxious, such as singing Rythemic relaxing music. 
  •  As a last resort in solving the babies sleeping problems, some parents take the baby out to get open air. 
  •  The baby falls asleep and then is carried gingerly to bed.
  •  Some babies will not fall asleep in their cot at any time and parents have to wait for them to nod off wherever they happen to be and then carry them to bed.

Teething and illnesses make the problem worse. 

  • Make sure that you have something from the doctor to rub on to sore gums when those teeth start to push through. 
  • Colic often interrupts babies and sleeping through. There are medicines to give for this too.
  • If you are despairing parents with a wakeful child, just remember that it won't always be like this. 
  • With Time passes it's worth watching your baby Smile & Cry.

Trying to conceive is a difficult process for many people. The reason is that there are many factors involved in conception. You cannot tell if you or your partner is infertile unless you visit a doctor. There are a number of medical tests that your doctor can perform to detect infertility. 

Avoid Infertility by understanding the cause

As Per WHO "Infertility may be caused by a number of different factors, in either the male or female reproductive systems. However, it is sometimes not possible to explain the causes of infertility." (Source: https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/infertility)

Doctors Methods to Detect Infertility

There are also methods and products that the doctor can prescribe to help in conceiving a child. 

One procedure a doctor can perform is to test the cervical mucus. Cervical mucus plays an essential role in conception, as it enables the sperm to make it all the way to the egg. 

The sperm are unable to do this if there is little or no cervical mucus present. 

Another factor involving cervical mucus is that it could be too acidic.

It is necessary for the mucus to be alkaline. If it is acidic, it will kill the sperm before they reach the egg.

When a doctor checks the cervical mucus, he/she will look at whether it is clear or curdled. 

If it is curdled, there is little to no chance of conception. If the mucus is clear and somewhat sticky, the chances of conception are good.

Before you start to think about the possibility that you or your partner might be infertile, make sure that you have been having unprotected (natural method) sex over a number of months, or up to a year.

Conception can take a long time, even for couples who have no troubles with infertility. 

Often, a couple may have unprotected sex for 8 or 10 months before conception takes place. 

Once you have given yourselves this waiting period, if conception still has not occurred, visit your doctor for what steps you should take next. 

Try not to worry - focus on the many tests and procedures available to help you and your partner become parents of a beautiful baby.

Our body’s internal system needs a PH of just above 7.0; our immunologic, enzymatic and repair mechanisms all function at their best in this alkaline range.

If our body becomes over acidic, i.e. under a PH of 7, you may start to experience a combination of these symptoms; 

  • Low energy, fatigue
  • Nasal congestion
  • Hives
  • Muscle Pain
  • Weak nails, dry skin, dry hair
  • Frequent colds, flu, and infection
  • Headaches

If you have these symptoms and eat foods that create acid in the body, you may need to balance it with an alkaline diet.

What foods cause acid in the body?

There is a whole list of foods that cause the body to be over-acidic: dairy and dairy substitutes, animal meat, most grains, chickpeas, condiments, aspartame, prunes, chocolate, peanuts, alcohol, and quite a few other types of foods. 

To balance your PH, the remedy is simple and logical; eat more alkaline-causing foods.

To name but a few of these foods, there is; watermelon, lime, mango, most vegetables, vegetable juices, almonds, sprouts, avocados, and green tea. 

When you’re body becomes more alkaline, the changes that will take place are truly amazing! It will seem magical, but it’s all perfectly normal. You will feel how we all have the right to feel, we just don’t know it. 

Benefits include:

  1. Rapid weight loss
  2. Increased energy
  3. The need for less sleep
  4. Improved skin and hair condition
  5. Better mental attitude

Fortunately, it is not hard to slowly alkaline your body. 

Take it one day at a time, add more and more green food to your diet, reduce the number of cups of coffee you have every day and you’ll soon reap the benefits.

Vitamins and minerals can be absorbed by the body in a number of ways. They first enter our bodies through the food we eat. Secondly, we can take vitamin supplements to increase the number of pertinent vitamins and minerals. There are different methods of taking medication and one of the most common methods is absorbing it in its liquid form. Do the advantages of liquid vitamins far outweigh their disadvantages - if there are any? Read on and find out.

Vitamins importance n liquid form

Better or Easier Absorption for Kids

Although liquid vitamins may taste worse than vitamins in flavored, chewable tablet forms, they are however easier to absorb. There are numerous cases in which children have problems with choking, breathing, and swallowing simply because of their inability to absorb medication or vitamins in this form.

This is the same problem as well for adults who have lost their ability to control their jaws or are unable to digest anything that is not in liquid form.

Liquid Vitamins are More Effective

Because of its form, liquid vitamins can be assimilated immediately into the bloodstream for a more systemic administration of the vitamin and its average absorption rate is approximately 90 to 98%. It is also three to five times more concentrated than vitamin pills and this lead to higher bio-activity and greater therapeutic benefits.

The Link between Antioxidants and Liquid Vitamins

Have you ever wondered whether or not liquid vitamins contained oxidants as well? Vitamins E, C, and A are examples of antioxidants and they are commonly found in vitamin supplements but what about liquid vitamins?

And the answer is an absolute YES. Liquid vitamins must in fact contain such antioxidants or they'll prove to be ineffective compared to other vitamins. Remember that the most important of all antioxidants - Vitamins A, C and E - are not internally produced by the body so they must be a regular fixture in our diet. Antioxidants are our main defense against the effects of damaging oxidation reactions. Antioxidants are our best weapons against suffering from any form of cancer. Without it, we are basically weaker and less healthy. 

Liquid Vitamins versus Digestive Acids

One reason why people refuse to acknowledge the benefits of liquid vitamins is because of the supposed destruction by digestive acids of any vitamin or mineral that it does not recognize as part of the process of digestion. The opposite is, in fact true. Our digestive system actually prefers or is able to better absorb liquid vitamins and minerals rather than those made in pill or capsule form.

A vitamin pill or tablet has to be digested completely before it can benefit the human body. It must be broken down into absorbable nutrients or only up to thirty percent of it will be absorbed by the human body. Liquid vitamins however provide a better and easier solution for the digestive system. Because it does not depend in any way on mechanical digestion, an estimated 90% of it can be absorbed directly by the body.

It's vital to remember that digestion does not mainly function to destroy vitamins and minerals but rather to transform them into substances it can use to improve the general constitution of the body.

Liquid Vitamins: Toxic or Not?

Another problem posed is the number of colloidal minerals found in liquid vitamins. Are they harmful or not?

In truth, even plants and fruits contain a trace of such minerals in them. Apples, for instance, contain 3-5 mg of aluminum as it's one of the most abundant elements that can be found in the surface of the Earth. But do you hear anyone telling you that apples are dangerous to your health? On the contrary, what we are more likely to hear is that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

And so it must be with liquid vitamins as well. Containing a slight amount of colloidal mineral doesn't mean it's bad for our health right away. Colloidal minerals are above all else, naturally occurring elements and can not, therefore, be avoided.

You Have a Choice

At the end of the day, however, it's still up to you whether or not you wish to take vitamin supplements in liquid or solid form. What really matters is what you prefer and which will ultimately work better for you.

 


Would you like to be a fitness woman? Or are you a fitness woman but would like to be effectively Active in Daily Life?

Here are 7 great tips on how to become an effective fitness woman:

1. Get a program that will best suit you. Every woman is different and according to the scenario, you have to select the fitness program. Always consult a qualified trainer to make sure that the fitness program will not hurt you. 

tips to be a fitness woman

2. Set daily or Weekly Targets that you can really achieve:  Make sure that the body you prefer in a period of time is achievable and realistic. The program should also be practical and will not give you false hopes. It is important to be aware of the blocks you encounter in your daily life. This will help you know what program is satisfactory. And once a program has been reached, then you can set goals and timelines that are realistic.

3. Exercises should work on the parts of your body where muscles are. The reason mainly is, that when you develop muscles, you burn more calories and then you lessen the fats in your body. Multi-joint exercises and weight lifting are recommended. Learn what exercises work on certain parts of your body. Multi-joint exercises are also said to be effective but time-saving.

4. Be systematic on working on your muscles. Your muscles should be working harder over time. Repeating the same sets of exercises and the same weight without getting your muscles to work harder will not give satisfactory results. You can record your daily results and make the progression based on your previous data. A daily log will also motivate you since you are able to track how far you have gone. It builds confidence since there is written proof of something that was successfully accomplished.

5. Perform a set of exercises in 10 repetitions. Every number that was accomplished is called a repetition. Try to make every repetition with less momentum as much as possible. The lesser the momentum, the harder your muscles work. And the harder they work, the bigger they become. To check if there is much momentum when lifting, see if the arm is floating. If the arm does float, then there is much momentum.

6. Be flexible and perform a variety of exercises.  Every exercise program should have a variety. You can change your exercises, goals and sets every month to keep you motivated and on the go. Doing this will help you prevent being bored and losing energy physically and mentally.

7. Be Motivated! The best way to keep the energy levels of trainees is to allow a healthy competition and allow them to have a sense of control. Having control is having a sense of ownership where everybody gets a part in implementing a program. To do this you also need to be consistent in demonstrating your skills. 

Not all programs work for all types of people. There is no workout that is best for everyone. But you learn from experienced people. Learn to acknowledge blocks and demonstrate self-discipline, keep yourself motivated and work harder everyday and add variety. Doing these things, you will discover that a lot of programs will work for you.
