we live in an era of sexual liberalisation with far reaching consequences. stis are a rising concern, with long term consequences. hiv is just the tip of iceberg.

the high risk factors are those with

-        multiple sex partners

-        early initiation of sexual activity

-        poor knowledge of contraception

-        hesitation in using barrier method by male partners

-        low socio-economic status with poor access to health care services, including pap tests

-        prostitutes, prison inmates,  drug addicts, those attending sti clinics

-        smoking, low immunity status like hiv, use of birth control pills for > 5 years, being younger than 17 at the time of first delivery, multiparity i.e having 3 or more children.

even the first wife dying of a cervical cancer placed the second wife at high risk.

yet despite the familiarity with the disease, it continues to flourish especially in developing countries. most of those who suffered rarely made to the hospital in time. educated women, even doctors hardly turned up for their pap smear in time. may be it was a feminine trait, being indifferent to their own health.

“this epidemic is one result of a sexually saturated culture and the myth perpetuated by academe, medicine and pharmaceutical companies that latex, contraception and  vaccines can make all sexual behavior risk free.” 

even among prime-time network television shows, there is only 1 portrayal of protective behavior or comment regarding stis for every 25 instances of sexual behavior shown.

sadly one-quarter of adolescents and young adults in high-risk age groups for stis did not have health care coverage.

only 11 percent of teenagers surveyed reported getting most of their information regarding stis from their parents or other family members.

knowledge and awareness of stis among the public is poor; almost two-thirds of women,18-60 years of age surveyed knew nothing or very little about stis other than aids.

young women and female adolescents are more susceptible to stis compared to their male counterparts because of their biological characteristics. during puberty and young adulthood, specific cells (columnar epithelium) are especially sensitive to invasion by certain sexually transmitted organisms are more exposed.

women and female adolescents may also find it more difficult than men to implement protective behaviors, partly because of the power imbalance between men and women

the only way to curb the rising epidemic was by :

  • inculcating responsible behaviour

sounds like a cliché but if you don’t take a detailed sexual history of your partner on your date, you don’t know him well enough to have sex.

and ‘safe sex’ is sex with your faithful spouse!  

  • encourage use of contraception ( barrier method )

§  enforcing pap smear in sexually active women ( 21-65 years) at least every 3 year( even in those previously vaccinated with hpv vaccine), or combining it with hpv testing every 5 years ( >30 years of age).

“screen-and-treat” and “screen, diagnose and treat” are both valuable approaches

 

  • promoting cervical cancer vaccine; may be a government initiative making the vaccine cost effective, mandatory or even free to all adolescent girls.
  • health education
  • tracing contact/ partner & treatment  for stis , wherever possiblecancer cervix is the leading cancer in indian women and the second most common worldwide. the precancerous changes start early, usually in the twenties, once the women is sexually active and if undetected and untreated  may turn into a full blown cancer by the time the woman is in her 50s.

    Heart Blockage Treatment with Simple Kitchen Ingredients

    Heart disease gets a lot of headlines and with good cause. It is the leading cause of death across the world, responsible for as much as 31% of all global deaths, according to the World Health Organization. Heart blockages, which can develop for a variety of reasons are the main cause of most heart attacks and strokes. Fortunately, if detected early, diet and lifestyle modifications can help counter the risk of serious heart disease, possibly helping prevent heart blockages. Ayurveda has long recognized heart disease as one of the primary threats that can be managed through diet and lifestyle modifications.

    While not every ailment is preventable, an Ayurvedic approach may help improve overall heart health, significantly lowering your risk of heart blockages.

    Causes of Heart Blockage

    There are numerous factors that can raise the risk of blockage formation, including heredity factors, but the most significant are dietary. Faulty diets are widely regarded as the biggest contributor to heart disease, as they can exacerbate various conditions or parameters that set the stage for heart blockages and other heart diseases. Poor dietary choices put you at risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

    Keeping the role of diet in mind, the main causes of heart blockages would include:

    • High intake of sugar and salt
    • High intake of foods containing trans fats and saturated fats
    • Nutritional deficiencies resulting from high intake of processed foods and inadequate intake of whole foods

    Other risk factors that should be considered include the lack of physical activity, high stress levels, age, family history, and smoking.

    The Best Ingredients for Heart Blockage Management

    While your overall diet and lifestyle have the biggest influence on heart blockage formation and the progression of heart disease, simply making sure to include certain ingredients can help. Here are some ingredients that work effectively to lower the risk of blockage formation, reducing any need for heart blockage surgery. 

    1. Cardamom

    Native to India, Nepal, and Bhutan, cardamom is a common folk spice used to improve blood circulation and offer relief from cardiovascular problems. Perhaps one of this herb’s most prominent features is its outstanding ability to reduce high blood pressure, a common cause of heart disease that is closely linked to heart blockages.

    2. Garlic

    One of the most valued herbs in Ayurveda, used to treat a variety of health conditions, garlic is also recommended for heart blockages. Ayurvedic physicians regard it as an effective aid to lower ama levels in the body and cleansing for the arteries. Today, most dietitians also recommend the addition of garlic to any diet for heart blockage treatment.

    Garlic has gained widespread acceptance as a heart blockage remedy that can lower the risk of heart disease because of extensive research conducted over the last few decades. According to one of the many studies, consuming garlic supplements results in significant reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of blockage formation. “We conclude that garlic supplementation has the potential for cardiovascular protection,” the researchers wrote.
