20 DAYS TOWARDS HAPPINESS AND HEALTH: DAY 14

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on July 6, 2012 at 8:00 am

14. GET A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP

 

Fact: The “natural alarm clock” which enables some people to wake up more or less when they want to is caused by a burst of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropin. Researchers say this reflects an unconscious anticipation of the stress of waking up.

It is hard to believe, but over 50% of people suffer from sleep disorders of some kind. Sleep constitutes at least 1/3 of our life. That 1/3rd of time spent in sleep creates a lot of neurophysiological reactions in the body. If we do not sleep well, our cortisol hormone which is also the stress hormone, rises rapidly. This in turn leads to weight gain and multiple other health and mental issues. Poor sleep creates imbalance in our neurotransmitters (dopamine and serotonin) in brain leading to mood disorders, anxiety and depression.

A few ways to improve sleep are

a. Sleep on time: Stop watching late night TV shows and movies for few days and get to bed at a decent time.

b. Sleep at least 7-8 hours: We all need to balance out life if we want a healthy mind and body. It is not the money that makes us wealthy, it’s our mind, body, thoughts and actions which make us rich.

c. Read a book or listen to calming music before going to bed.

d. Drink a glass of warm milk.

e. Take a shower if you like. That would be icing on the cake.

f. Change your bed sheets: A lot of times we do not change the bed sheets periodically, i.e., at least once a week, which leads to build up of certain allergens and bacteria which may cause skin irritation, sinus congestion, etc which lead to poor sleep.

g. Put your cell phone to silent mode: You do not need to get disturbed by the beeping of your phone every time you get an email which are usually useless emails telling you about some promotional deals or stuff like that.

h. If you snore, get early morning headaches or feel tired and sleepy during the day, then you would need to be evaluated for Sleep Apnea which is a very common problem especially in overweight people and smokers.

‘Doctors do not Sign Up for Sainthood’

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on June 7, 2012 at 8:00 am

Each society in this world has many ‘Bad Fish’ which make it all dirty looking. We just blame the whole water to be dirty instead of getting rid of the bad fish. ‘Doctors don’t sign up for sainthood.’ But the general public seems to knows better about doctors. When people make derogatory comments on the medical profession and healthcare, they only highlight the presence of unacceptably high numbers among them some who deserve such criticism.

To err is human and problems exists in all professions. But since medicine concerns a person’s health, drawbacks and failures of doctors are over-projected. Doctors may be hindered by: hospital owners who make heavy investments and encourage them to ensure maximum revenue; inefficient staff in laboratories and radiological centers; pharmacies which dispense incorrect, spurious or stale medicines; pathological and radiological centers which corrupt them with lures of incentives for referring patients to them; and the failure of patients or their attendants to follow their advice.

While we should take note of all these points before passing a judgment on doctors, we have a right to expect them to abide by the solemn oath they take before they enter the medical profession.

Corruption and malpractice are common in all professions. I don’t understand why a particular profession should come under the scanner. I agree though that present-day doctors do not have the same degree of dedication as old-timers. When education becomes a business to make money, we cannot expect to have true saints.

When doctors get attached to money, the noble quality of their work suffers. So does the effect of their medicine and treatment. History has seen a number of doctors who worked purely to alleviate the sufferings of the sick, not to accumulate wealth. They were concerned about our health rather than their wealth.

We should have a social responsibility to get together to fight the wrong-doings wherever it may be. Sometimes you have to play part of a doctor to cure these social diseases. But do not blame all doctors to be making money by corrupting the system. Most of them just want to help you and make a living as everybody else.

Doctor’s Story: Not much Glory

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on June 3, 2012 at 9:35 am

Sleepless Nights,Big Bright lights,
I made books and blood my friends,
Had to know all the current trends.
I cried a lot,I suffered a lot,
Throughout the journey, I did not leave the plot.
Serving is my mission,Care is my vision.
Even with the pain, medicine is my passion.
I stayed far from my family, did not get all the love,
I touched the disease many times without the glove.
I may seem to be making money,
But do not forget that I have to leave my honey.
I get up early and sleep very late,
Just to make sure that I change your fate.
I hold your hands when you need,
Forgetting at times that I need to feed.
I love what I do,
But still fear the ‘Sue’.
I am the one,
On the run.
Never Tired,
Always Hired.
When I get calls
For somebody who falls
I get up to make you stand
Always greet you by shaking hands,
I may fly wavy like a helicopter,
Believe it or not, I am your Doctor.

DOCTORS GO THROUGH A LOT TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER.
SO, APPRECIATE THEIR WORK !
