This problem often present in young children’s and adults, its management is very simple but the anxiety of parents complicates the problem.CHILD

So it is important to understand that this nasal bleeding or epistaxis in medical terms presents in serious manner but it does not have serious cause. The only time it is serious when the blood loss is too much results the child goes into shock but this is rare case, bleeding stops in couple of minutes.

To understand the cause we should need to understand the anatomical formation of nose .front part of the nose called little area is home to several small blood arteries running close to surface. This area covered by moist and delicate skin. In children’s this area is very sensitive and delicate, arteries start to bleed with mild damage whether it is due to blow or expansion because of heat.



In children, bleeding happens more in summer than in winters. In summers because of increase temperature inner skin lining of nose becomes dry. The delicate nasal skin cracks and starts bleeding.

Trauma to the nose either by blunt object or a blow cause nasal bleeding but commonly it happens due to rubbing, scratching and picking the nose.

Deviate nasal septum from midline is another reason for bleeding, it causes deviated airflow results in drying the one sided skin and cracked, increasing the risk of bleeding.

Cold, upper respiratory tract infections, allergies causes inflammation of inner skin of nose increases the risk of bleeding.

Blowing of nose to clean is another reason of nasal bleeding.



  1. Do not pick the nose.
  2. Gently blow the nose to clean.
  3. Sneeze with the mouth open.
  4. Avoid hot and spicy foods.
  5. Apply ice packs to slow down the blood flow.
  6. When its bleeding , makes the child to sit in upright position so that his/her head is above the heart level . make the child to lean forward slightly and breathe through mouth so that he does not swallow blood .PINCH
  7. Pinch the front part of nose for few minutes, release it to see if bleeding continues. If bleeding continues then pinch for another five minutes to ten minutes. Take medical advice if it continuous BLEED.
  8. Increase intake of vitamin k rich fruits and food products like blueberries, figs, pears, cucumber, eggs.

                       TIPS TO PREVENT NECK PAIN


People  working in offices normally complain of pain in the neck and upper neck region. This occur due to the tendency to move the head and the neck forwards followed by the rounding up of the shoulders and thereby putting extra pressure on the neck and the upper back muscles.

Slumping while sitting exerts a weight of approximately 16 kg on the neck while the head actually weighs 5 kg. this extra weight means muscles of the neck and the back have to work much harder , thereby tiring quickly.

Neck pain can be manifested as headache , pain in the upper back area or the whole arm. Headache originating in the neck causes restriction in neck movements.

Following tips can help in avoiding neck pain –


1.  While concentrating on the computer screen , reading material should always be about 15 – 30 degrees below from the head position or at the eye level contact to avoid sustained bending of the head/neck.

To confirm close your eyes first and then open slowly. If the gaze is at the centre of the computer screen, then the level is Perfect , otherwise this needs to be raised or lowered suitably.

The keyboard and mouse should be operated with relaxed shoulders and bent elbows. The keyboard should be kept close to the Lap . If no keyboard table is available , then it is better to have the keyboard on the knees so that your arms and shoulders are not raised to put strain on the upper back muscles.

2. While typing , writing and reading etc it is advisable to keeps the arms vertical with the elbow behind the plane of the chest , and not projected forwad. Arm –rest of the chair helps in taking off the load from shoulder and the neck.

3.  When we sit behind a table, the chair height should  be such that the forearms rest comfortably on  the table without hunching the shoulders up and down. People wearing eye glasses while reading should place the head in an erect balanced position by adjusting the frame of the eye- glasses on the nose in such a way that neck bending is avoided.

4. Near sightedness should be corrected since it causes the head forward posture which leads to neck pain. Eye glasses with adequate focal length should be used so that a person can see clearly with the head in balanced position.

5. An Awkward  posture used for a long time at office or on a computer  tends to develop a round shoulder posture . Correction requires a gentle movement of the head backwards to bring the ears in line with the shoulders. People with a long supple neck should strengthen there neck muscles as they are more prone to developing pain in the neck than those with a short stocky neck because of great leverage and demand placed on the  muscles.

Swinging the head around at full range of  motion –  head rolling- should be avoided as this can cause pain , dizziness and vertigo. Side bending neck exercise – by bringing the ear to the shoulder first on one side and then other side – helps in improve flexibility of the neck. 

6. Holding your head with hands while doing sit-ups can cause neck pain. Alternatively one should place the hands either across the chest or on the temple to avoid neck strain.

7. Excessive neck extension while sleeping can be corrected by using a small , soft pillow that supports the normal cervical curve . Individuals who prefer side sleeping should tuck the side pillow between the shoulder  and the chin and not under the shoulder to avoid pain neck muscles


8. Neck pain can occur while reading when the bed lamp is placed on one side of the bed. The reading light should fall directly on the book  .  While typing from copy , it is important  to place the copy at eye level and as near as possible to the centre of the line vision. Placing a copy at the sides involves neck rotation and can cause  stiffness/pain of neck.

9. A tight shirt collar and clinching the necktie too tightly can cause neck pain. While selecting a shirt a finger should fit comfortably inside the collar not only when looking straight but also looking at the sides.


10. While talking on the telephone for a prolonged period of time , one should change one’s hand to hold the receiver . Use of a headset is recommended in such cases.

11. Peoples suffering from vertigo and dizziness should avoid hyperextension of the neck while sleeping , sitting in a Beauty Parlour or at Dentist’s chair.

Acidity is related to heartburn and gas formation in stomach. In acidity, acid reflux or Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), or more commonly known as ‘Urdhvag Amalpitta’ in Ayurveda, there is a movement of gastric juices ( acid in nature) from the stomach into the lower part of esophagus.

Ayurveda considerds it to be caused by the aggarvation of Pitta dosha. When Kapha is associated with this aggarvated Pitta, the Acid starts climbing the oesophagus. This is exactly the hyperacidity for most of us and is translated widely as- Heartburn, Acid  Reflux, Acid Brash etc.

Causes of Hyperacidity

Excess production of acids in stomach is termed as the hyperacidity. There are varieties of reasons which cause excess acid production. The most important among these are:

  • Excessive use of the oily and spicy foods
  • Anxiety, depression and anger
  • Irregular eating habits.
  • Consumption of Maida products in large quantity.
  • To use leafy vegetables in excess.
  • Sleeping just after taking meal.
  • Drinking of excessive water
  •  To not to sleep in night, long working hours.
  • Excessive intake of the caffeine and nicotine products.
  • Constipation
  • Carbonated drinks
  • Foods which are rich in fats, such as chocolates cause acidity or acid reflux diseases.
  • Excessive intake of alcohol, smoking, keeping stomach empty for long time, skipping breakfast causes  acidity.
  • Other causes of acidity or  heartburn are Pregnancy, Aging, Obesity, and bad eating habit, like eating  junk foods.

Common Symptoms of Hyperacidity

Pain in upper abdomen immediately following a large or spicy meal

  • Nausea, vomiting, and loss of desire to eat which may persist for 1-2 days
  • Heartburn or sour belching
  • A sense of abdominal distension or  ‘bloating’
  • Flatulence (burping, belching)
  • Blood vomitting or blood in stool may occer in severe cases
  • If gastritis persists there may be eventual development of anemia

Diet recommendation for hyperacidity:

What to eat and how much to eat is an important factor in controlling acidity. The following tips should be followed:

  • The diet should consist of milk  with sugar, and a little old rice.
  • Other recommended substances are:  barley, wheat, rice (at least one year old), cucumber, bitter gourd, green banana, pumpkin, pomegranate, and cow’s milk.
  • Eat dinner two to three hours before sleeping time as it keeps you healthy.
  • Fibers are necessary in the diet as they help in the digestion.
  • Take the balanced diet, don’t  shift to the totally bland spice-less foods.
  • Eat small meals more often as it  helps in digestion.

Avoid  following things in diet –

Foods that are rich in oils and fats. These foods are difficult to digest, so they may make the stomach release more acids.


  • Eating fried, fatty, junk foods,  and Excessive Chocolates.
  • Eating Red meat. eat only occasionally, if at all.
  • Too much intake of Tea  and Coffee may cause hyperacidity. This is also true for  other addictions such as Smoking and Alcohol Consuming sour foods as they      already have acidic contents.

  • Food must be fresh and prefer food  grown locally, or at least seasonally.
  • Food should be prepared with a caring and loving attitude.
  • Food must be eaten with attention  and awareness. Our sense of taste ignites the digestive fire before food ever reaches the stomach.
  • Being distracted with books, driving, computers, and phones during a meal negates any hope of a  balanced digestive process.
  • Eating is best done during Pitta  period, between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M.; this is when the enzymes are the strongest and digestion will be the most effective. Eating at other times  will eventually compromise the body’s ability to digest and assimilate    nutrition and give energy over a long period.

                                            BENEFITS OF SELECTING PROPER SHOES


The small appendage at the end of our body that we call the foot is actually more important than we realize,this is the foundation on which we stand. Our feet bear the whole body weight and stabilize the body as we run, twist or dance.

Even the simple act of walking may be huge strain. Many of us do not know that we walk about one lakh miles in a lifetime and all the weight is borne by our feet. So we must know that wearing a proper pair of shoes is the kindest thing we can do for our feet.

Lets’s start with shoe wear selection


Certain foot problems have now been clearly identified to be unique to societies wearing “fashionable” or incorrect shoes as “barefoot” societies DO NOT suffer from these problems.

1. We must realize that shoe size is important, and may vary among different brands. The standard sizing systems for shoes is based on averages and no size will be absolutely accurate for you. Additionally, minute changes in sizes may be seen with different types of leather or synthetic material also. So never select shoes by size marked inside. Instead, try them on and see how you feel, especially while standing.

2. All of us have one foot slightly larger than the other. When you measure your feet, measure them both by trying on both shoes.Please understand that with unequal foot size, you must comfortably fit the larger foot, even if the second shoe feels too large on the other foot. An innersole or heel pad can be added to the larger shoe to tighten the fit, but a tight shoe will be a problem you can not correct.

         Since our feet expand sideways when we stand and walk, try on shoes during standing and walking for proper size. There should be about 1 cm width between your longest toe and the end of your shoe, and always try on shoes with socks.  

 3. Another important  point is to go shoe shopping in the evening, during the day our feet swell due to activities and gravity, and if the shoes fit in the evening, they will never feel too tight. After choosing the right shoes make sure that you walk with the shoes on for at least 5 minutes before purchasing them.

4. Make sure that the ball of your foot fits comfortably in the widest part of the shoe. Also there should be some comfortable “wiggle” room for your toes. Your heel should fit comfortably into the shoe, with little or no should not purchase shoes that feel too tight, expecting them to “stretch” to fit. Although there will be some moulding with the passage of time,most materials, including leather, do not stretch enough to make a difference, and you may end up with uncomfortable shoes.


5. In children size of shoes is double important, not only should you leave some room for growth when you buy them, you should also ensure that they are somewhat loosely fitted in the first place. Although somewhat cumbersome, shoes with laces, which allow adjustments, are perhaps the best for children during their growth years.Never buy your child a shoe that looks good, looks are only for parents.


High heels  and a tight toe box significantly contribute to forefoot deformities, which once established, can be corrected by Surgery. If women must wear high heels they should not be more than 2 inches high. If the wearing of these cannot be avoided, try not to stand in them for too long.

Patients with heel pain, knee arthritis and back problems are definitely benefited by soft insoles or air cells in shoes.Some shoes shaped like foot have been designed with separate compartments for different toes, but these are at experimental stages and are focused on athletes only.

Motivation – the heart of self improvement

Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income. Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for ourselves to save our face from the next embarrassments. It may be a bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book that will help us get up and get just the right amount of motivation we need in order to improve ourselves.

With the countless negativities the world brings about, how do we keep motivated? Try on the tips prepared from A to Z…

  • A – Achieve your dreams. Avoid  negative people, things and places. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
  • B – Believe in your self, and in what you can do.
  • C – Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand  life, you should feel the sun from both sides.
  • D – Don’t give up and don’t give  in. Thomas Edison failed once, twice, more than thrice before he came up  with his invention and perfected the incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel.
  • E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried.  Learn as if you’ll live forever. Motivation takes place when people are happy.
  • F – Family and Friends – are life’s  greatest ‘F’ treasures. Don’t loose sight of them.
  • G – Give more than what is enough.  Where does motivation and self improvement take place at work? At home? At school? When you exert extra effort in doing things.
  • H – Hang on to your dreams. They may dangle in there for a moment, but    these little stars will be your driving force.


  • I – Ignore those who try to destroy you. Don’t let other people to get the best of you. Stay out of toxic people – the kind of friends who hates to hear about your success.
  • J – Just be yourself. The key to  success is to be yourself. And the key to failure is to try to please  everyone.
  • K – keep trying no matter how hard  life may seem. When a person is motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life  finally clearing out, paving the way to self improvement.
  • thCAX82H70
  • L – Learn to love your self. Now  isn’t that easy?
  • M – Make things happen. Motivation  is when your dreams are put into work clothes.
  • N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game.
  • O – Open your eyes. People should  learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways – how they want things to be, and how they should be.
  • P – Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes.
  • Q – Quitters never win. And winners  never quit. So, choose your fate – are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?
  • R – Ready yourself. Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us  to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark.
  • S – Stop procrastinating.
  • thCA9DKSGY



  • T – Take control of your life. Discipline or self control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement.
  • U – Understand others. If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second.
  • V – Visualize it. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land.
  • W – Want it more than anything. Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self improvement.
  • X – X Factor is what will make you  different from the others. When you are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on.
  • Y – You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend it once.
  • Z – Zero in on your dreams and go  for it!!!
