There are many common diseases that cause human death. Everyone may be inflicted with any disease anytime. But there are some very common diseases that we can handle easily and stay protected. According to the International Classification of Diseases which identifies health trends and statistics worldwide, and contains around 55 000 unique codes for injuries, diseases and causes of death. This great work is done by World Health Organisation. A person can ward off over 12 diseases just keeping hands clean. Consumption of enough water can desist from many diseases and if the water is rich in Vitamin C it can protect you from allergy or fever a variety of skin diseases including gastric. Milk can help your skin and bone and gastrone system.
A common disease which frequently inflicts in human body is allergy. Allergy occurs when a person reacts to substances in the environment that are harmless to most people. These substances are known as allergens and are found in dust mites, pets, pollen, insects, ticks, moulds, foods and some medications.
When a person who is allergic to a particular allergen comes into contact with it, an allergic reaction occurs. When the allergen (such as pollen) enters the body, it triggers an antibody response.
The antibodies attach themselves to mast cells. When the pollen comes into contact with the antibodies, the mast cells respond by releasing histamine.
When the release of histamine is due to an allergen, the resulting inflammation (redness and swelling) is irritating and uncomfortable.
Similar reactions can occur to some chemicals and food additives. However if they do not involve the immune system, they are known as adverse reactions, not allergy.
Most allergic reactions are mild to moderate, and do not cause major problems.
However, a small number of people may experience a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis, which requires immediate life saving medication.
Allergens which may cause anaphylaxis include foods, insects and medications. Here are some food suggestions which can help in such allergic conditions.
No food is a proven cure. But fruits and vegetables are good for your whole body. They’re full of nutrients that can keep you healthy. They may also protect from seasonal allergies. These include 1. Onions, peppers, berries, and parsley all have quercetin. Elson Haas, MD, who practices integrative medicine, says quercetin is a natural plant chemical.
According to Haas, this chemical may reduce “histamine reactions.” Histamines are part of the allergic response. 2. Kiwi is a fuzzy fruit rich in vitamin C. It can also cut down on histamines. You can get Vitamin C from lots of foods, including oranges and other citrus fruit. 3. Pineapple has an enzyme called bromelain.
According to Lawrence Rosen, MD, bromelain can reduce irritation in allergic diseases such as asthma. 4. Tuna, salmon, and mackerel have Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 can help reduce inflammation. Go for two servings of fish every week. A study from Japan found that women who ate more fish had lower levels of hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis. 5. Kefir is a yogurt drink that contains probiotics.
These are good-for-you bacteria that live in your gut. Rosen says they may help prevent and even treat seasonal allergies. You can get probiotics in fermented foods. Look for yogurts that say “live active cultures” on the label. Sauerkraut and kimchi are also good sources. 6. Local Honey. The research is mixed on whether local honey helps you head off allergies. “If you take small doses of the honey early in the season,” Rosen says, “you may develop a tolerance toward pollen in your area.” One study found that people who ate birch pollen honey had fewer symptoms of birch pollen allergy than those who ate regular honey. It’s not a sure thing, but see if it works for you. Now let’s talk about some common pharmaceutical drugs and their ingredients.
The Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is the part of any drug that produces its effects. Some drugs, such as combination therapies, have multiple active ingredients to treat different symptoms or act in different ways.
Some food provides those elements which are used as the base of some drugs.
Food and drugs are complimentary themselves. Paracetamol (Acetaminophen):- The painkilling properties of paracetamol were discovered by accident when a similar molecule (acetanilide) was added to a patient’s prescription about 100 years ago.
But since acetanilide is toxic in moderate doses, chemists modified its structure to try and find a compound that was less harmful but which still retained the analgesic properties. One of these compounds is N-acetyl-para-aminophenol, which is also known as acetaminophen in the US and paracetamol (from para-acetyl-amino-phenol) in the UK. When mixed with codeine it goes by the trade name Tylenol.
Acetanilide Paracetamol Aniline: In fact, in the body, the original compound, acetanilide is partially converted into a mixture of paracetamol and aniline. The paracetamol provides the painkilling properties, but the aniline is toxic. Paracetamol has a very similar structure to aspirin, and because of this they are recognised by the same enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for the biosynthesis of prostoglandins, which are involved in the dilation of blood vessels that causes the pain experienced in a headache. Reduction of the amount of prostoglandin, therefore, helps prevent headaches and other pain.
How it’s made Paracetamol is one of the most common drugs used in the world, and is manufactured in huge quantities. The starting material for the commercial manufacture of paracetamol is phenol, which is nitrated to give a mixture of the ortho and para-nitrotoluene. The o-isomer is removed by steam distillation, and the p-nitro group reduced to a p-amino group. This is then acetylated to give paracetamol. Normally paracetamol is taken as painkiller in any type of fever.
Though it contains phenol as its primary constituent, that doesn’t mean that all phenol containing food should be eaten during fever. So what should we eat during fever? Well the answer is here.
Nutritionists say that one should drink lots of water when affected with fever. The reason being, viruses and bacteria augment better in dehydrated units and the white blood-fluid units present in our body-fluid function better and the toxins are removed more effortlessly when the body is hydrated properly. Consume raw fruits and vegetables which can be peeled.
To sustain the functioning of the immune scheme in fever, one should reduce or stop caffeine intake.
During fever one should decline any kind of sugar intake like, soda, any kind of undiluted fruit juice, honey, natural and perfected sugars. The cause behind this is the activity of the killing white blood-fluid cells get slower in sugar nourishment.
Choose to consume food that are cooked, rather than the raw ones. The food should include those with entire seeds, cooked with steam vegetables, soup and diluted fruit juice. The reason is that, raw food are difficult to digest in contrary to cooked food.
Freshly lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice extract diluted with half cup water and no sugar or ice should be included in the diet while one is suffering from high temperature. When suffering from fever, try to give more of fluids like fruit or vegetable juice extracts, iced fruit bars, herbal teas, broths and gelatin. If the fever is accompanied with diarrhea, then include more of semi-solid or soft nourishment like khichuri (hotchpotch), vegetables soups, supple simmered eggs, cooked with steam vegetables, yogurt, and porridge.
Another food that could be relieved on when in fever is rice porridge with ginger and vegetable broth. This food is very simple to digest and has healing properties. Foods like turkey, pullet, fish, oatmeal and bananas support the well-being of the organs by generating pollution fighting white blood cells.
Probiotics rich food should be included in the diet as these food are said to be effective in reducing high temperature, hack and length of antibiotic.
Omeprazole: Another frequently used drug is omeprazole. Omeprazole oral capsule is a prescription drug that’s only available in a generic form. It doesn’t have a brand-name version. Omeprazole is also available as an oral suspension and comes as an Over-The-Counter (OTC) medication. Omeprazole belongs to a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions. Omeprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach produces. It does this by blocking a system in the cells of your stomach called the proton pump. The proton pump works in the final step of acid production. When the proton pump is blocked, your stomach makes less acid. This can help decrease your symptoms. Omeprazole is used to treat conditions caused by too much acid production in the stomach, such as: -Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) erosive esophagitis (acid-related damage to the esophagus, the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach) -Gastric (stomach) ulcers or duodenal ulcers (duodenal ulcers occur in the first part of your small intestine, which is connected to your stomach) -Zollinger-Ellison syndrome stomach infections caused by Helicobacter pyloribacteria. -This drug may be used as part of a combination therapy. This means you may need to take it with other medications. Omeprazole and esomeprazole are proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and potent inhibitor of gastric acidity which are widely used in the therapy of gastroesophageal reflux and peptic ulcer disease. Omeprazole and esomeprazole therapy are both associated with a low rate of transient and asymptomatic serum aminotransferase elevations and are rare causes of clinically apparent liver injury.
Foods which can help in gastric problem are given below. Herbalists may recommend different types of herbs in the treatment of GERD. For examples: chamomile ginger root marshmallow root, slippery elm etc. At this time, there’s little clinical research to back up the effectiveness of these herbs in treating GERD. Researchers don’t recommend using traditional Chinese medicine to treat GERD.
Current studies on herbal medications are poor and not well-controlled. Always check with your doctor before you take herbal supplements. Even natural herbs can cause unintended side effects.
Baking soda: As an antacid, baking soda can help temporarily neutralize stomach acid and provide relief. For adults and teenagers, dissolve 1/2 teaspoon in a 4-ounce glass of water. There are some foods that may help manage your gastritis and lessen the symptoms. These include: Highly fibrous foods such as apples, oatmeal, broccoli, carrots, and beans.
Low-fat foods such as fish, chicken, and turkey breast, foods with low acidity, or are more alkaline, like vegetables drinks that are not carbonated drinks without caffeine and probiotics such as kombucha, yogurt, kimchi, and sauerkraut. Some studies and trusted sources show that probiotics may help with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). H. pylori is bacteria that causes an infection in the digestive system which can lead to gastritis or stomach ulcers.
Foods that are high in fat may worsen inflammation in the lining of the stomach. Some other foods to avoid because they can irritate the stomach are, alcohol coffee acidic foods like tomatoes and some fruits fruit juice fatty foods fried foods carbonated drinks spicy foods allergenic or symptomatic foods. Foods are always helpful to keep our body healthy and free from hunger.
But we need to know which food should take in which time.
Thus we can reduce our dependence on drugs as minimum as possible.
