It's crucial to take care of your eyes as well as your skin as summer approaches. Due to their sensitivity, eyes can develop a number of disorders from prolonged exposure to the sun, dust, and pollution. Numerous eye issues, including corneal burns, retinal damage, chemical conjunctivitis, and corneal infections, are known to be brought on by hot weather, excessive UV exposure, and chlorinated water.
According to Dr. Vandana Jain, Regional Head - of Clinical Services, Dr. Agarwals Eye Hospital, Vashi, Mumbai, "Summer is the time when we enjoy the outdoors, but we often forget to take care of our eyes. Summers can be very challenging for our eyes, as excessive exposure to UV rays can cause cornea burns, retinal damage, and other eye problems. Also, spending too much time in air-conditioned environments can cause eye dryness, while chlorinated water in pools can lead to chemical conjunctivitis and corneal infections.
Moreover, the swinging temperature during summer can cause viral and allergic conjunctivitis, leading to eye discomfort and irritation. Therefore, it's essential to take necessary precautions to protect your eyes from these potential threats during the summer.
Dr. Jain suggests the following eye care tips to protect your eyes during summer:
Wear Larger Sunglasses with 100 percent UV Protection: Invest in sunglasses that provide full protection against harmful UV rays. Wraparound frames are the best as they give protection even from the sides.
Use Wide Brimmed Hat: In addition to sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat will give you additional protection from the sun.
Stay Hydrated: Drink at least two liters of water to prevent your skin and eyes from getting dehydrated.
Apply Sunscreen Carefully: While applying sunscreen, ensure that it does not get into your eyes as it can cause discomfort.
Avoid Mid-Day Sun: The sun is at its strongest between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and it's best to stay indoors during these hours. If you must go out, don't forget to wear sunglasses and a hat.
Protect Your Eyes in the Pool: Chlorinated water can irritate your eyes. Wear swimming goggles every time you jump into the pool and wash your eyes with fresh clean water after swimming.
Use Lubricating Eye Drops: The increased use of air conditioning can cause dryness in your eyes. Use preservative-free eye drops to give comfort to your eyes.
Wear Protective Eye Gear: During outdoor activities, always wear protective eye gear to prevent eye injuries from flying debris.
Dr. Vandana adds, "These simple eye care tips will help you enjoy summers without any eye problems. Remember, prevention is better than cure, therefore, scheduling regular eye check-ups to detect and treat eye problems early is very important. Also, people should avoid smoking, as it can increase the risk of various eye problems, including cataracts and macular degeneration. So, this summer, protect your eyes and enjoy the outdoors with caution. (Agency)

लंदन। भारतीय मूल की एक महिला के नेतृत्व में किए गए एक शोध के अनुसार, जिन महिलाओं को घरेलू दुर्व्यवहार का सामना करना पड़ा है, उनमें अस्थमा सहित एटोपिक बीमारियों के विकसित होने का खतरा अधिक हो सकता है। जर्नल ऑफ एलर्जी एंड क्लिनिकल इम्यूनोलॉजी में प्रकाशित स्टडी के मुताबिक, रोगी रिकॉर्ड के विश्लेषण में पाया गया कि महिलाओं का एक बड़ा प्रतिशत वो था जिनको एटोपिक रोग थे और जिनका इतिहास घरेलू दुर्व्यवहार और हिंसा का रहा है।
ब्रिटेन के बमिर्ंघम विश्वविद्यालय के डॉ जोहत सिंह चंदन ने कहा, हमारे नतीजे बताते हैं कि घरेलू हिंसा और दुर्व्यवहार की पीड़ित महिलाओं में एटोपिक बीमारियों के विकास का जोखिम 52 प्रतिशत बढ़ जाता है।
उन्होंने कहा, घरेलू हिंसा और दुर्व्यवहार एक वैश्विक मुद्दा है जो महिलाओं को प्रभावित करता है। हम घरेलू हिंसा के स्वास्थ्य प्रभावों के बारे में अपनी समझ को और गहरा करना चाहते हैं, इसलिए साक्ष्य-आधारित सार्वजनिक स्वास्थ्य नीतियों को न केवल घरेलू हिंसा को संबोधित करने के लिए विकसित किया जा सकता है, बल्कि एटोपिक रोगों पर भी ध्यान दिया जा सकता है।
शोधकर्ताओं की टीम ने यूके में एक अध्ययन किया, एक चिकित्सक के साथ वयस्क महिलाओं (18 वर्ष और उससे अधिक आयु) के साथ हुई घरेलू हिंसा को देखा और उनकी तुलना 18 वर्ष से अधिक उम्र की दूसरी महिलाओं से की जिनके साथ ये हिंसा नहीं हुई थी।
जिन महिलाओं में एटोपिक रोग पहले से थे उनको अध्ययन से बाहर रखा गया।
कुल 13,852 महिलाओं की घरेलू हिंसा के संपर्क में आने के रूप में पहचान की गई और बिना हिंसा की शिकार 49,036 महिलाओं से उनका मिलान किया गया।
स्टडी के मुताबिक, 13,852 महिलाओं में से 967 में एटोपिक रोग पाया गया, जबकि दूसरे समूह में यह संख्या 2,607/49,036 थी। (एजेंसी)

It is common knowledge that the scorching summer heat is bad for your skin and hair. It is essential to protect it at all costs. Long-term exposure to the harsh sunlight of summer can cause weathering and oxidative damage to the scalp. This leads to hair that is dry, brittle, and stiff.
While covering your head with a cap or scarf is a must when outdoors. Mihir Gadani, Co-founder, of OZiva, shares ten ways to successfully protect your hair from the burning summer heat.
Do not apply too many cosmetic or colouring dyes to your hair during summer. It has been seen that coloured hair can undergo considerable changes during summer. Therefore, it is best to avoid excess chemical and chemical treatments during this time of the year. Even if you want to colour your hair during summer, it is recommended that you use organic compositions and do it for at least a couple of months before the mercury levels go off the charts.
Is hair becoming too dry due to the sun? The ideal way to secure your hair from the heat of the sun is by wearing a cap or scarf. If you don't want to wear a scarf, ensure that you at least use a leave-in conditioner with SPF. If your profession comprises working outdoors, use hair products that pack enough SPF. You can also select a special hair mask or sunscreen product that is customised for your hair type. However, once you reach home make sure you wash your hair with water. Go for a rinse-out conditioner that can rejuvenate your hair by reinstating its original moisture and life. You should always choose a conditioner that compliments your hair texture and hair type.
Excessive use of shampoo is detrimental to your hair. Do not apply shampoo every day as it will do more harm than good by drying up your scalp and weakening the hair. If you sweat more profusely in the scalp region and have hair that gets easily greasy, you should opt for a mild shampoo. Remember to apply the shampoo only on the scalp and not the hair or it will become dry.
Who doesn't love going for an afternoon swim to cool the body during summer? But did you know that your hair can get easily damaged due to the concentrated levels of chlorine in the water and UV radiation from the sun? The best thing that you can do is make sure you apply a leave-in conditioner before and put on a swimming cap, post-swimming use a nice shampoo to reduce the damage done to the hair from the chlorinated water.
Go easy on the blow dryer as it emits excess heat that can harm your hair during summer. If need be, wash your hair half an hour earlier than usual so that it has sufficient time to dry in the air. Steer clear of styling irons and curlers and allow your hair to be in its natural state.
It is often the tips of your hair that sustain the highest damage during summertime heat. It is common for people to witness a lot of split ends and dry tips during this period. Therefore, this is the best time to go for that new haircut. In case you do not want to cut your hair short, you can settle for a small trim that will take care of the ends and reinvigorate your hair.
Co-washing or conditioner washing is a must during the summer months. As your hair gets dirtier during summer due to the copious amounts of sweat and dirt, regular hair cleansing is imperative. During this period, merely shampooing your hair does not suffice. Make sure you wash your hair with a good quality replenishing conditioner. After wetting your hair, apply for two minutes and then rinse with soft water for the best result.
If you suffer from oily hair, then regular co-washing is bound to make your hair greasy. Shifting to dry shampoos is a good option in such cases. You can also apply a little sprinkling of baby talc on your scalp and hair and then comb it out. This has to be one of the simplest yet most effective hair care tips for summertime.
While practising all the above tips, make sure you follow this advice to the letter. Drink lots of fluids. The significance of keeping yourself well-hydrated during peak summer months cannot be stressed enough. Drinking sufficient water is key to good hair and skin health. You should also eat a lot of fresh seasonal fruits and green vegetables as they not only hydrate the skin but are also loaded with a number of essential vitamins and minerals. Along with maintaining a good and clean diet, you can also add plant-based biotin supplements to your routine as it supports healthy, nourished hair, skin, and nails.
One thing to swear by when it comes to haircare and skincare is to invest in clean and plant-based products that will protect your hair and skin irrespective of the season. Whatever the reason for hair damage is, add products that are vegan and free of harmful chemicals like sulphates, parabens, dyes and artificial fragrances, in your daily hair care routine to get maximum results.
Follow the aforementioned tips diligently and you will have very little to complain about when it comes to hair health. While these recommendations operate mostly on the external level, make sure that you power yourself internally as well by drinking lots of water and eating natural and organic foods that can keep you cool during the heat.

Pregnancy is a life-changing experience for women, as they prepare to bring a new life into the world. It is a time of great joy and anticipation, but it can also be a time of stress and anxiety.
Mental health issues are common during pregnancy, and it is essential to take care of your mental health to ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Mental health issues during pregnancy can take many forms, including depression, anxiety, and stress. These issues can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, relationship problems, financial stress, and physical discomfort. Whatever the cause, it is important to address mental health issues during pregnancy to ensure the best possible outcome for both the mother and the baby.
According to Shivangi Sagar, Counselling Psychologist and Co-Founder of HopeQure, a platform for counselling and therapy consultations, mood swings are normal during pregnancy but if you feel nervous or down all the time, it could be a sign of something deeper. She says, "Stress over being pregnant, changes in your body during the pregnancy, and everyday worries can take a toll. Depression and anxiety are the two most common and prevalent disorders faced during pregnancy. The prevalence ranges from 8 to 30 per cent all over the world."
"Antenatal depression i.e., depression before the birth of the child is a strong predictor of postnatal depression. Depression is sadness or feeling down or irritable for weeks or months at a time. Someone may have depression before getting pregnant. But it also can start during pregnancy for a number of reasons -- for example, if a woman isn't happy about being pregnant or is dealing with a lot of stress at work or stress at home. Whereas, anxiety is a feeling of worry or fear over things that might happen. If you worry a lot anyway, many things can stress you out during pregnancy. You might worry that you won't be a good parent or that you can't afford to raise a baby," says Shivangi.
"Perinatal and antenatal mental issues have been associated with many poor outcomes, including maternal, child, and family unit challenges. Infants and young children of depressed mothers are more likely to have a difficult temperament, as well as cognitive and emotional delays. Among mothers who have a history of depression and decide to stop taking their antidepressants during the perinatal period, the majority suffer from relapsing symptoms. If depression continues postpartum, there is an increased risk of poor mother-infant attachment, delayed cognitive and linguistic skills in the infant, impaired emotional development, and risk for behavioural problems in later life."
While there is a probability of adverse mental health concerns in mothers during pregnancy, it is of chief importance that these symptoms can be managed.
Here are seven ways Counselling Psychologist Shivangi suggests you protect your mental health while pregnant:
Seek Prenatal Care: Regular prenatal care is critical to identify mental health issues early on and providing support and resources to address them. Prenatal care can also ensure that both the mother and the baby are healthy throughout the pregnancy. Prenatal yoga is a powerful tool for managing depression. It can assist in elevating the mood during pregnancy and provide strength to the body, especially the pelvic floor, hip, and abdominal core muscles. It gives the mother a healthier pregnancy and research has confirmed that a healthy mother is more likely to have or give birth to a healthy baby.
Increase Awareness: It is important to take notice that you are facing mental health issues. It can be helpful to talk to a professional and help you deal with your specific issues.
Practice Positive Self-Talk: Sometimes writing a few positive affirmations and reading them aloud can help in uplifting the mind. It is significant that pregnant women should focus their attention on positive things.
Communicate Openly: Talking about what is causing you stress with your partner, family, friends or a professional can help you understand your stressors and how you can manage them. It will also help your loved ones support you during this period. Having a strong support system during pregnancy can provide valuable emotional support and connection. Joining a support group for pregnant women can also provide a valuable source of support.
Prioritise Self-Care: Taking care of oneself during pregnancy is essential to reduce stress and promote positive mental health. This can include getting enough rest, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in regular physical activity. Taking time for oneself to relax and engage in activities can also help reduce stress.
Breathing Exercises: You can try breathing exercises and help you calm yourself in times of stress and anxiety. You can also try mindfulness and meditation techniques to regulate your emotions.
Seek Professional Help: If you are experiencing severe or persistent mental health issues during pregnancy, it's essential to seek professional help. This can include therapy, medication, or a combination of both. Healthcare providers can help identify the best treatment options for individual needs. (N. Lothungbeni Humtsoe)

भारत की एससीओ अध्यक्षता में आयुष मंत्रालय के तत्वावधान में हाल में गुवाहाटी में राष्ट्रीय आरोग्य शिखर सम्मेलन के साथ-साथ बी2बी सम्मेलन तथा एक्सपो का आयोजन किया गया। इस आयोजन से पारंपरिक चिकित्सा को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए 25 एससीओ देश सफलतापूर्वक एक साथ आए, ताकि वह आर्थिक विकास, पर्यावरण संरक्षण में योगदान दे सकें तथा एससीओ देशों के बीच स्वास्थ्य सुरक्षा के लक्ष्य को प्राप्त कर सकें।
इस कार्यक्रम में म्यांमार के स्वास्थ्य मंत्री महामहिम डॉ. थेट खिंग विन, मालदीव के स्वास्थ्य उपमंत्री महामहिम सफिया मोहम्मद सईद तथा आयुष राज्य मंत्री डॉ. मुंजपारा महेंद्रभाई सक्रिय रहें। वर्चुअल मोड़ में तकनीकी सत्रों में चीन, रूस और पाकिस्तान की भागीदारी सराहनीय रही। सम्मेलन तथा एक्सपो सह शिखर सम्मेलन का उद्घाटन केंद्रीय आयुष तथा पत्तन,पोत परिवहन और जलमार्ग मंत्रालय मंत्री सर्बानंद सोनोवाल ने किया।
भारत को 2017 में एससीओ की पूर्ण सदस्यता मिली। 17 सितंबर 2022 को उज्बेकिस्तान के समरकंद में वर्ष 2023 के लिए एससीओ राष्ट्राध्यक्ष परिषद की अध्यक्षता ग्रहण करने के बाद प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेन्द्र मोदी ने कहा था कि भारत पारंपरिक चिकित्सा पर नए एससीओ विशेषज्ञ कार्य समूह के लिए पहल करेगा। इसी के अनुरूप, आयुष मंत्रालय ने भारत की एससीओ अध्यक्षता के दौरान पारंपरिक चिकित्सा पर अनेक पहल की हैं। इनमें पारंपरिक चिकित्सा के विशेषज्ञों तथा चिकित्सकों के वर्चुअल सम्मेलन का आयोजन, जिसमें पारंपरिक चिकित्सा पर प्रारूप विनियमों को विशेषज्ञ स्तर पर स्वीकृत किया गया तथा आगे अन्य संबंधित देश प्रशासनिक प्रक्रियाओं के अधीन होंगे और अंतत: राष्ट्राध्यक्षों के शिखर सम्मेलन में अपनाया जाएगा। इस कारण गुवाहाटी एससीओ बी2बी सम्मेलन तथा एक्सपो का महत्व बढ़ गया है और यह सफलतापूर्वक गति पकड़ सकता है।
एससीओ बी2बी सम्मेलन से अलग आयुष मंत्रालय ने आयुर्वेद तथा पारंपरिक चिकित्सा के क्षेत्र में सहयोग पर म्यांमार के साथ द्विपक्षीय बैठक भी की। इसके लिए आयुष मंत्रालय और म्यांमार के स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय के बीच 29 अगस्त 2016 को समझौता ज्ञापन पर हस्ताक्षर किए गए थे। यह समझौता ज्ञापन स्वत: 28 अगस्त, 2026 तक बढ़ गया है और मान्य है। भारतीय पक्ष का नेतृत्व पत्तन, पोत परिवहन और जलमार्ग मंत्रालय मंत्री श्री सर्बानंद सोनोवाल ने किया। म्यांमार का नेतृत्व वहां के स्वास्थ्य मंत्री महामहिम डॉ. थेट खिंग विन ने किया।
इस सम्मेलन में कुल 214 प्रतिभागियों ने भाग लिया। इनमें से 83 प्रतिनिधि 16 एससीओ देशों के अंतर्राष्ट्रीय प्रतिनिधि थे और 131 भारतीय प्रतिनिधि थे। कार्यक्रम के दौरान कुल 30 प्रस्तुतियां दी गईं, जिनमें से 19 एससीओ देशों की थीं। भारत ने 11 प्रस्तुतियां दी, जिनमें आयुष मंत्रालय तथा उद्योग जगत की प्रस्तुतियां शामिल थीं। सम्मेलन के दौरान कुल 11 सत्र आयोजित किए गए। विभिन्न चर्चाओं/प्रस्तुतियों, व्यापार गतिविधियों तथा राष्ट्रीय आरोग्य सम्मेलन/एक्सपो के साथ-साथ चलने से सभी प्रतिनिधियों की सक्रिय भागीदारी महत्वपूर्ण उपलब्धि थी।
उद्योगों, शैक्षणिक संस्थानों तथा आयुष सेवा प्रदाताओं सहित 56 प्रदर्शकों ने गुवाहाटी में बी2बी एक्सपो में अपने उत्पादों, संस्थानों तथा अवसंरचनाओं का प्रदर्शन किया, जबकि 11 देशों के 60 खरीदारों ने गहरी दिलचस्पी दिखाई। सम्मेलन तथा एक्सपो के दौरान क्रेताओं और विक्रेताओं के बीच 125 से अधिक वन-टू-वन बैठकें हुईं। आयुर्वेद शिक्षा, पारंपरिक चिकित्सा उत्पादों तथा आयुर्वेद और योग को मेडिकल वैल्यू ट्रेवल प्रदान करने के लिए अवसंरचना विकास के क्षेत्र में 13 एससीओ देशों द्वारा व्यापार हित की रुचि व्यक्त की गई। बी2बी बैठक में ताजिकिस्तान, आर्मेनिया, उज्बेकिस्तान, मंगोलिया, कजाकिस्तान, बहरीन, म्यांमार, श्रीलंका तथा भारत के प्रतिभागी थे।
