OSTEOARTHRITIS OF KNEE
OSTEOARTHRITIS OF KNEE

Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body. It is like wear and tear which develops over many years. It is common in people over 50 years of age, particularly in women. Both knees need not be affected at the same time.
The cartilage gradually roughens and becomes thin exposing the underlying bone. The wear is more common on the inner side of the knee.
Osteoarthritis of the knee joint produces:
• Bone wear leading to asymmetric shape and movements
• Weak ligaments, and
• Changes to articular cartilage and tears of the menisci.
Risk factors :
1. Sportsmen who played contact sports.
2. Previous injury to the knee.
3. Obese people with Body Mass Index>30
4. Occupations involving prolonged squatting or kneeling, carrying heavy weights regularly, repetitive strain to knees.
5. Crystal Deposits such as uric acid in the joint is a chemical risk factor and may damage the joint fast.

Symptoms: Develops slowly over several years.
*In the beginning there may be some discomfort after a long walk or exertion. *Later stages: Stiffness after rest / sitting for some time and early in the mornings.
*Swelling of the joint
*Clicks or grinding noises from joint
*As the condition progresses, pain can interfere with simple daily activities and can disturb sleep.
* Muscles may become weak and thin. *Patient may also develop bow legs or knock knees.
Treatment Options:
Treatment depends up on the stage of the OA. It cannot be cured at once but one should not consider this as a disease. We can slow down the progression of the disease and to make life more comfortable:
• Knee Supports/Braces – Some splints provide pain relief with external support but can be uncomfortable to wear
• Assistive Devices – Such as cane or walker can be used to help in walking
• Medications – To control pain and to nourish cartilage (dietary supplements).
• Topical Creams/gels - Topical creams provide an alternative to oral medications.

• Heat and Cold Treatments - Local application of heat or cold can help with relief from pain and inflammation after exercise.
• Weight Loss - Weight loss can have a significant effect on slowing the disease progression.
• Exercise Program - A specific exercise program can help to maintain healthy cartilage and range of motion of the joint. In addition, keeping the attaching muscles and tendons conditioned and strong will aid in the joint's stability. If exercising is difficult, hydrotherapy may be useful to reduce the stress on the joints.
• Viscosupplementation - A ‘joint lubricant’ can be administered as an injection. This substance helps to lubricate and nourish the knee joint and can decrease the amount of inflammation.
• Arthroscopy – This procedure takes care of locking symptoms.
• Knee Replacement Surgery- Has proven it’s place and is hugely successful all over the world in relieving the symptoms from advanced osteoarthritic knees.


Exercise Program:
1. Heel slides: sit or lie on your back and gradually bend your knee by sliding the heel on the mattress.

2. Static quadriceps exercises: Sit with your legs straight and keep a rolled towel under your knee. Press the knee against the towel while tightening the thigh muscles. Hold this for count of 5 to 10.

3. Hamstring strengthening exercises: Sit with your legs straight and keep a rolled towel under your heel. Press the heel against the towel while pressing the knee to the ground. Hold this for count of 5 to 10.

4. Hamstring stretching exercises: Sit on a chair with your back straight. Lift the foot up by pulling it towards you and straighten the knee. Hold this for count of 5 to 10.

NOTE: Each exercise should be repeated atleast 10- 20 times and should be done within your pain limits.

improvement in medical education system.
To

Honorable Minister Sibal,Shri Kapil,

Ministry of HRD ,

India.


Respected Sir,

I am an Adolescent health counselor.

I am the mother of 2 school children –one in 10th and other in 7th.

It’s a welcoming option of abolishing 10th std board exam which is boldly announced in India for the first time.
Our education system needs reforms since the population is high and the potential of our Indian students are also high.
Our Indian brain capacity, working quality, ability to cope with other people and educational quality makes us to enter any country and survive.
Our kids of this time are put under great pressure for the population eligible for examination entry is enormous and the need to win the race is great.

The parents are also struggling hard to keep their children in the race and make them a winner.

The engineering education system is well updated and the number of seats increased as per the population need. The children find it easy to enter the engineering colleges since its more in numbers.

I am writing this letter to share with you the need for improvement in medical education system.

If we see the Daily papers there are at least 2 advertisements by centers inviting for “Study MBBS in Russia, China, “

The charges are not less than 4 lakhs per year. I find there are many parents who send their children getting loan from bank and with great difficulty by lending money from private lenders pledging their life.

The population of India is going high and we need more doctors proportionally.

The medical seats are like brides who can be threatened and tortured for dowry in the marriage market.

1. Why nothing is done all these years to change this selection system?
2. Are our politicians unaware of these malpractices going on in our educational system?
3. Why the numbers of medical seats are not increased over years according to the population hike and the eligible student’s number?
4. Why the government is keeping its eyes closed to the hijacking of our students to different countries with the attraction of good degrees like MBBS, MD etc.
5. The master degree candidate is paying in lackhs to obtain the seat in India while the foreign countries give MD as a starting degree for comparatively lesser money for which our students are attracted. The qualification is ignored for the sake of money value.
6. Why not our country opens more scope for medical education so that we will have more doctors to take care of our growing India?
7. Open more colleges and make more seats available and the parents are willing to pay the expenses for the education of their children instead of sending them to far off countries .They pay more money to see their children to be educated scholars and why not we have them here in our mother land. Let they spend the money here in India and earn a degree working with our people and develop expertise with our disease pattern instead of coming from foreign countries learning that countries needs.
8. The money spent on these students is made worthy when we have them as Indian doctors trained in India. We don’t want our children to come back as foreigners to our India without knowing our disease pattern.
9. Let the politicians, middle man and college administration staffs leave the good children of India to learn what they want with free will and ambition so that the future India becomes a learned country and not bribed by the greedy intruders.
10. Money is nice when earned but not by selling the worthiness of our precious India.
11. Let us all work to improve the quality of India!



Thank you for the constructive 100 days projects taken by the new independent government.

Congratulations!

Hypnotherapy in sexual dysfunction
Hypnotherapy in sexual dysfunction

This is how you have
hypnotherapy !
1. You are totally aware of your surroundings; remember everything and you are the one performing the therapy.

2. You are not put under sleep or sedation.

3. You are guided to enter your subconscious mind and work for your mind health.

4. You are guided to visualize the issue and directed to find the origin of the issue in your past.

5. You are given different techniques to heal the memory /thought forms which make you behave in this particular pattern with sexual dysfunction etc…

6. You are instructed to analyse the problem or behaviour of yours from its origin and guided to reframe /restructure the behaviour and memory in that subconscious mind state to a constructive positive and productive habit.

7. Self assertion is done after healing the weak organ of sexuality in the energy level, mind and positive attitude implanted in the subconscious mind for complete cure. This is to work as the framework on which the mind works to health in future.

8. Healing is done to related issues identified by your own mind at that moment and you are brought back to the normal conscious level.

9. Walk with light heart and happy mind to face the new world with confidence and joy.

10.This will reduce the treatment time and medicine intake.
For many clients one session is enough to get the healing process to begin. But we recommend 1 to 4 sessions for an issue for complete care.
Details of other treatment methods avialable in our centre

Grief/guilt/stress therapy with Hypnotherapy
Grief therapy with Hypnotherapy
Support for Grieving and Bereavement
Losing someone or something you love is very painful. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness will never let up. While these feelings can be frightening and overwhelming, they are normal reactions to loss. Accepting them as part of the grieving process and allowing yourself to feel what you feel is necessary for healing.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve — but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain. You can get through it! Grief that is expressed and experienced has a potential for healing that eventually can strengthen and enrich life.
What is grief?
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one – and this type of loss does often cause the most intense grief. But any loss can cause grief, including:
A relationship breakup –love failure
Death of a loved one
Survivors of suicide and their friends
A miscarriage
Loss of health
Losing a job
Loss of financial stability
Death of a pet
Loss of a cherished dream
A loved one’s serious illness
Loss of a friendship
Loss of safety after a trauma
The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief. However, even subtle losses can lead to grief. For example, you might experience grief after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home, or retiring from a career you loved.
When to seek professional hypnotherapy help for grief?
Feel like life isn’t worth living
Wish you had died with your loved one
Blame yourself for the loss or for failing to prevent it
Feel numb and disconnected from others for more than a few weeks
Are having difficulty trusting others since your loss
Are unable to perform your normal daily activities
Hypnotherapy sessions help you in loss/death of a loved one
1.You are totally aware of your surroundings; remember everything and you are the one performing the therapy.
2.You are not put under sleep or sedation.
3.You are guided to enter your subconscious mind and work for your mind health
4.You are guided to visualize the grief oriented subject (person lost) and communicate about the grief and pain of separation.
5.You are guided to request for energy transfer between both and ask for forgiveness and forgive wherever applicable.
6.Give him/her a healing from white light and help him/her enter white light which is the abode he/she have to reach after death.
7.Feel that you are no longer feeling the intense suffering but are happy and contented that you have done justice- what is needed for the departed soul.
8.You are relieved that you have sent him/her in to white light safely and calmly with heart filled love and care.
9.You are sure to feel positive that he/she is safe in his/her journey and evolution since you communicated with him/her and gave him/her the best path possible on earth.
10.This gives the foolproof method of giving a send off to the diseased loved one among many of the rituals on earth. This is the one you are doing with full conscious and subconscious participation.
11.Return to conscious world with satisfaction and assertion that you are going to live the life and evolution of yourself with the blessing and guidance of the loved one departed from earth with light heart.
12.Talk for years about the feeling you felt when you met your loved one and of the interactions you shared during the hypnotherapy with satisfied feeling and not with grief.
13.Share with your friend and family the benefit of mind oriented haling by hypnotherapy and ask them to experience one for themselves.

Spirit release Therapy
http://doctorgomatthi.page.tl/Spirit-release-Therapy.htm
Earthbound spirits, negative thought forms, dark energies and, upon occasion, demonic energies can attach themselves to humans at times when they are vulnerable or suffering from trauma or negative emotions.


At the end of a life that has ended with shock, confusion or unresolved issues, be they positive: not wanting to leave a loved one or negative: a desire to get revenge, the soul energy of a person does not travel into the light. As a result they can be stuck on the earth plane and, at a loss for where else to go, will be attracted to a person displaying similar energy.

The emotions and feelings connected with a sudden, traumatic death can become the force which attaches a spirit to the earth plane. Anger, fear, jealousy, resentment, guilt, distress, even strong ties of love, can interfere with the universal transition into the Light. If a person dies by drug overdose, the newly deceased spirit may attach to someone who uses drugs or alcohol in order to maintain the sensations of the habit.


Sometimes at death a spirit or soul is confused or simply out of fear does not return to where it belongs. We have a choice even at the moment of our death. We're free to return home to the Light or remain on earth and rove around. If we are a victim of murder, we may also have a choice to attach ourself to the person who took our life and cause them trouble in their life.


Many spirits remain on the earth plane because of a lack of awareness of their own death.

Confusion, distrust and disbelief concerning religion and spirituality can prevent the spirit from moving into the Light.

A person subjected to this experience may just report hearing voices yet have no other psychotic symptom or behaviour. A newly formed attachment may be evidenced by the sudden onset of drug or alcohol usage, unusual and inappropriate expression and behaviour patterns, or noticeable personality changes following surgery, accident, emotional upset, suicide of a family member, even moving into a new home.

As the result of an attachment, or possession, physical appetites for food, sex, alcohol, and drugs can increase greatly. Personal attitudes and beliefs can suddenly change, as can personal tastes. The voice and even facial features and appearance can alter dramatically. An earthbound spirit retains the psychic energy pattern of its own thinking, and can transmit to it`s victim any mental abnormality or emotional disturbance, as well as any symptom of physical illness.


This condition can be extremely confusing and frightening for a person, and for friends and family. Attachment to any given person may be completely unplanned, even accidental. An attachment can be benevolent in nature, self serving to fulfil a personal need of the spirit, harmful in intention, or completely neutral. It can occur simply because of physical proximity to a dying person at the time of the death. The connection may be established by the purposeful choice of either the spirit or the living human, because of a strong emotional bond between them.


A person can be vulnerable and open to attachment due to any mental or physical symptom or condition, strong emotion, repressed negative feeling, conscious or unconscious want or need. This vulnerability can act like a magnet to attract a foreign entity with the same or similar emotion, condition, need or feeling. Severe stress may cause susceptibility to the influence of an intrusive spirit. Alteration of the consciousness with the use of alcohol or drugs, especially mind drugs, opens the unconscious mind to invasion by discarnate beings.
The same can be true for the use of anaesthetic drugs for surgery.

Spirit release therapy uses hypnosis to open up a safe communication with any energies that do not belong with a person and a therapeutic discussion ensues, allowing the energy to be gently returned to the light. Even dark energies contain light and these too can be dealt with with compassion and love.

Spirit Releasement is a therapy, not a rite. Unlike exorcism, it comes from a position of compassion, not confrontation. It aims both to free the client and to assist the attached spirit to continue its evolutionary journey.

Past Life Therapy is often usefully combined with Spirit Releasement Therapy.

CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE
Often called C-difficile, or C- diff, is a type of bacteria that causes symptoms that can range from diarrhea to life threatening inflammation of the colon.Since the commonest cause of this diarrhea is long term use of antibiotics , it is also called antibiotic diarrhea. In recent years C-diff has become more frequent, more severe and difficult to treat.Your risk is greatest if you are taking or have recently taken antibiotics. The risk is higher if you take multiple antibiotics for a prolonged period. Seen more in older age group, recently hospitalized for an extended period. C-diff infections are seen more in nursing home or longterm care facilities. It is found more among patients with weakened immunity and those who have some underlying medical illnesses. Patients who have had some abdominal surgeries or have colon disease such as inflammatory bowel disease , colorectal cancer or previous C-diff infection are also at risk.The antibiotic that most often leads to C-diff infection include fluroquinolones, cephalosporins, clindamycin and penicillins. These drugs can destroy some of the normal, helpful bacterias in your colon. Once established it produces toxins that attacks the lining of the intestine. The toxin destroys cells and produces plaques of inflammatory cells and decaying cell debris inside the colon. Some new strains of C-diff has emerged that are resistant to certain medications and are deadly.
Stool tests like enzyme immune assay and tissue cultures are used to detect this infection.Flexible sigmoidoscopy is sometimes used to confirm the diagnosis. CT scan may be ordered if there is a concern about possible complications like pseudomembranous colitis. Bowel perforation and toxic megacolon are also some of the complication of C-diff.Severe diarrhea may cause dehydration and in some cases kidney function may deteriorate. If not treated promptly this can be fatal.Most common symptoms are, watery diarrhea 10-15 times a day, abdominal cramping, fever, pus or blood in the stool, nausea, dehydration, loss of appetite and weight loss.The first step in treating C-diff is to stop taking the antibiotic that triggered the infection. In an ironic twist, the standard treatment for C-diff is another antibiotic. Usually metronidazole , for mild to moderate and vancomycin, for severe symptoms are the drug of choice. Probiotics are given in conjunction with the antibiotics to restore intestinal flora.For people with severe pain, organ failure or inflammation of the colon , surgery to remove the diseased portion of the colon may be the only option.

What are we? Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
What are we? Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar

In general:
We the political leaders usually represent the unsatisfied instincts (fear, insecurity, needs).

We the economic leaders represent the unsatisfied ambition for money!

We the leaders in the field of art represent the unsatisfied passions and feelings such as suffering, pains and the urge of romance!

We the social leaders represent unsatisfied urge for egalitarian reforms.

We the academic leaders represent the unsatisfied intellectual pursuits!

But true leaders are those who represent the innate unsatisfied urge of Self realization. True religion, true spiritualism, true nonviolence, true secularism, and true progress are present only in an exalted state of such true leaders.
We preach and hype the words; “religion”, “spiritualism”, “nonviolence”, “secularism”, “progress” etc; and practice varying degrees of violence in physical, instinctual, emotional and intellectual behavior; and in economic, industrial, educational, agricultural such other policies, plans, programs and their implementation.

It is high time we follow the true leaders (whom we are neglecting, humiliating or exploiting for petty gains), by virtue of whom India is, was, and will continue to be a true world leader! All such true leaders advocate the practice and globalization of NAMASMARAN (JAP, JAAP, JIKRA, SUMIRAN, SIMARAN i.e. remembrance of God or reorientation to true Self)!
