Rabies is still a deadly disease in developing and under-developed countries, where the health facilities and living standards are low. People normally do not get their farm animals or pets or themselves vaccinated until exposed.
Carrier animals can be your pet cat or dog, animals on-farm, or wild animal. If you are an explorer, traveler, or camper who is keen on nature and wild animals, you are at high risk of encountering wild boars, beavers, and bats.
The viral disease is often confused with the common cold as the early symptoms of Rabies are somewhat similar to it. As the disease progresses and the symptoms get severe. Rabies is often characterized by the symptom of hydrophobia, fear of water.
Nearly about 56k people die every year, due to Rabies, with more than 95%being affected in Africa and Asia.
Out of these global deaths, 40% of the mortality rate is among children under 15 years.
Let us take a moment and appreciate the work of the greatest scientist of all times, Alexander Fleming, who saved us from a horrid viral disease, Rabies. Initially, on exposure to rabies infection, the person was vaccinated for more than 20 injections but with the advancement in clinical researches and healthcare, the dosage has reduced to 14 Immunoglobins injections.
A wise man once uttered a beautiful sentence
“Prevention is better than cure.”
We all know, no person can resist cute pets especially cats and dogs from keeping them at home. You can neither stop them from interacting with other wild animals nor restrict them at home. So, it is recommended that always get your pet and farm animals vaccinated to avoid any casualty or complications.
The vaccines of Rabies Virus for human beings are also available at Ahmeys Clinic. Our experts are always available for vaccination
Stools should be loosely formed, rather than hard. Constipation is characterized by hard fecal matter. With no definitive cause, constipation can even occur if people suppress the urge to defecate. It is generally a condition where a person is unable to pass out fecal material with ease. It has multiple causes ranging from poor diet and hydration to an unhealthy lifestyle. This may occur due to abnormal peristalsis and dysbiosis. Stress also exerts an effect on Gut which may either leads to diarrhea or constipation.
CONSTIPATION AND ITS CONNECTION WITH OTHER DISEASES

Being a broad term, IBS or Irritable bowel syndrome does not provide a clear picture of the disorder. The syndrome is a portrayal of contradictory symptoms including abdominal pain, anxiety, nausea, depression, bloating and flatulence, diarrhea, or constipation. Since, there are no definite symptoms and causes of IBS, it is generally diagnosed by abnormal bowel control and movement. Normally, Our autonomic nervous system controls our bowel movement that gets slightly disturbed in IBS.
Abnormality in gut motility leads to the accumulation of food, waste, and toxins inside the gut leading to gastrointestinal symptoms. It is better to check yourself checked by your GP as the symptoms might be similar to any serious illness like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative Colitis. Diet and lifestyles are the main cause of IBS as depicted in researches. There is no specific test for the diagnosis of IBS but a complete history of the patient’s lifestyle and dietary habits is what gives the idea to the GP about the bowel disease.

Unfortunately, large number of world population is affected by Acne, a skin ailment categorized by clogged pores and pimples. The disease is not only restricted to the face but affects your upper and shoulders as well. Symptoms include whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and blemishes at the affected areas.
We all know that every individual is born with different skin type, oily, dry or combination of both. Acne mostly affects the oily skin as it is an excellent medium for the bacteria to grow. The oil clogs the pores and bacteria residing in the clogged pores prompting an immune system that result in the formation of pimples containing pus.
The common misconception among the people is that it mainly affects the teenagers. People of all age group suffer from this skin condition but the prevalence is high among teenagers. One of the major culprits for acne outbreak is Hormonal disturbance. When the hormones are disturbed, they increase the secretion of Oil thereby blocking hair follicles to form painful zits which sometimes becomes inflammed due to the presence of bacteria.

Fertilization marks the initiation of pregnancy, a period of 9 months when a mother carries a baby inside her womb till the baby is fully developed and ready to be delivered to face the challenges of the world.The gestational period is a critical phase when your body and your baby needs complete nourishment.Nutrition during pregnancy is not only vital for the mother but also the developing baby.During the three trimester, The body is undergoing different physiological changes which requires a proper nutritional care to cope up. Your body may suffer mild Edema, low blood pressure or abnormal levels of nutrients in your blood.
Working as a nutritionist in a hospital, I have received many pregnant women with the complaint of PICA.
You might have heard pregnant women craving for Sand and Cement, this is called PICA. PICA is an umbrella term used for such cravings which includes Geo-phagia (eating sand or cement), Pago-phagia (consumption of ice), and amylo-phagia (starch). This normally occurs when a body is incredibly low on calcium and Iron.
Moreover, there is a need to create awareness regarding the importance of folic acid in Pregnancy. Seeing mothers delivering a baby with birth defects breaks my heart. One of the commonest birth defect observed is Neural Tube Defect.Folic acid, a micronutrient required for cell division, DNA synthesis, and neural tube formation.The deficiency of Folic acid or folate can lead to life-threatening and lifetime defects such as spina bifida and Anencephaly, genetic defects in which the neural tube fails to close properly and develop into the mature brain and spinal cord eventually.
HEALTHY FOOD IS A KEY TO HEALTHY PREGNANCY
The food guide below will lead you to the path of healthy and comfortable pregnancy.
- Adopt the principle of “ variety, balance, and moderation”
It is recommended to eat all food items from all the food groups. There are majorly 5-6 food groups including milk, vegetables, fruits, fats, bread and cereals, and meat. Bread and cereals are a good source of Carbohydrates and fibers. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy while the fibers will help you relieve gestational constipation and reduces the risk of Hemorrhoids.
Protein from the meat will help in the tissue development of the fetus and mother, as the healthy mother would give birth to a healthy baby. 20% of your energy should be from protein-rich foods.
- Proper Intake of calories is necessary.
Have you ever heard people telling a pregnant mother, “You now have to eat for two bodies”?
Yes! This statement has some real science in it.
The period of gestation is about 38-42 weeks (9 months). Your body doesn’t need extra calories other than your daily required calories in the first trimester but the energy requirement increases with time.
|0-3rd Month||1st trimester||No extra calories required|
|4th -6th Month||2nd trimester||360 additional calories|
|7th -9th month||3rd trimester||410 additional calories|
For instance, your daily caloric requirement is 1500 calories and it’s your 2nd trimester so you would have to take 1500+450 calories.
- Proper intake of Vitamins and minerals
Since the body is undergoing different physiological changes during pregnancy, the deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals occurs. Iron deficiency is one of the most prevalent complaints of pregnant mothers. The vitamins and minerals are not only beneficial for mothers but adequate intake is necessary for fetal growth and development as well. The deficiency of certain micronutrients can cause serious complications.
- Control Blood Pressure and Blood Glucose level.
Most of the time, the pregnant mother faces the issue of increased blood pressure and blood glucose level (Gestational hypertension and gestational diabetes.)
Eating a balanced diet with a low glycemic index and glycemic load and consume salt according to the daily requirement which should not exceed more than 2300mg can save you from the risk of Gestational diseases. These gestational diseases are temporary but if not properly monitored can lead to lifetime chronic diseases.
