Mid year health review 2014



Mid-Year review on your health

We are at midyear 2014. Before starting of this year, each one of us had our own resolutions to maintain, achieve and to realize dreams by end of this year. Its great to have a resolutions list already prepared before start of the year to see oneself a head being healthy and wealthy too.

Assuming, most of us had such a checklist(as I call ,here) prepared and this list as some percentage of “health” part included.

If you are the one who had not yet prepared or not yet seen realizing your check-list. This below information will certainly gives a heads up to see these points are realized.

“Better late than never”


  • Please visit nearby diagnostic centre to have basic health checkup, upon which you will have a clarity how you can have a check on your cholesterol levels, intake of water, Blood cells count and Urine infections, if any.


  • Have you paid your health insurance premium? If not please pay before due date.  Even your employer provides one, it is always suggestible to have one separate (this can be handy, if you are out-of job for a while or if u wish to take a break from your work for a year long.)


  • If you have kids or senior citizens, make sure you are attentive for any ill-health symptoms they show up especially during rainy and winter months.


  • Always keep Phone (Mobile numbers) of family doctor (if you don't have one, any doctor near your residence), Pharmacist and multi-specialty hospital.


  • You have joined in a gym with a curiosity to cut down calories or build muscles, are you still continuing? If not, still you have six months ahead to see what you have dreamt off before joining gym.


  • Make sure you have first-aid kit at your home. If you have one, check essential items are in full stock. If you do not have one yet, please get it as soon as possible.


If you have points to increase this list, please comment below.

Wishing you all to be always healthy and wealthy.


Thank You.

Family Physician- How to choose one for better health



The famous saying, “Health is Wealth” will never need an explanation. Unfortunately most of us will realize the importance of health when we fall ill, rather it should be otherwise i,e following footsteps of prevention is better than cure.

Mostly major diseases are prevented when found in early stages. For e,g Cancer, when diagnosed at early stages, one can be cured completely.

This article gives you a clear insight about family physician, a.k.a family doctor, who is determined to serve us and can cure from major ailments when approached in time. 

Helping Hand:

Whether you are a part of joint or nuclear family. Having family physician is must.
When we(any of family members) fall ill we rush to hospitals or clinics which are near our residence or offices. Once we are healthy, we rarely think of doctors, hospitals or clinics. Keeping a check on these things may not be helpful in our professional career, they are certainly will be a helping hand for our family.Sometimes, visiting corporate hospitals will prove costly even for a small treatment kind or diagnosis. Its not a fault with you or with hospitals. It’s the corporate hospitals DNA which makes you to spend good amount of money for any treatment,whether its a minor or major one.

Choose one family physician, with good academic and work credentials, and make sure you and your family visit firstly, for any health issues.

Keeping informed him about your family health history, is must. This will help him to provide better treatment and can alarm you from major health issues which can be faced in mere future.


Money Less(wisely) Spent : The consultation charges of family physician are lesser, when compared with corporate hospitals. It is advisable to choose your family physician for any day care treatments.
Its fact, that your health insurance comes into action only when the insurer is hospitalized for minimum of 24 hours. Health insurance should be used for critical diseases diagnosis only, for rest visit family physician clinics. These are also called retail health clinics.

Pre and Post medical care:
Say for e.g if a family member has undergone operational treatment from a hospital, after being referred by your family physician. The post-operational treatment will be carried out from residence itself. This is the time where family physician will be more helpful. He guides, motivates and suggests to improve faster from ill-health. He acts as a Psychological support besides your family members support for a patient.


Say for eg. A person has met with an accident and he has undergone with major and critical surgery. Just experience how much trauma he and his family members would have gone through. Thanks to doctors effort, the patient is out of danger and he will be all set to lead normal life say,after four to six months of bed rest. Once patient resides at home, this creates a tough time for family members to carry out post medical treatment. Right, from keeping patient body fresh to feeding him proper food and giving him medicines on time. At this point , having family physician can help you to come out of this tough time. He can appoint a family nurse who can take care of keeping patient body fresh,and feeding food on time. Family doctor can also appoint family phsiotherapits, who can help patient to carry out his trainings suchas, walking with out support of chair or stick, as suggested by consultant doctor(s).



Health Records:

Keeping a list of family physicians prescriptions is must for every one. These prescriptions will be helpful in framing your own family health history. As like, corporate hospitals ,family physicians often will keep any computer based records.Its our responsibility to take care of these. Make sure, for every visit to your family physician you will carry prescription file/record. Although one may not face same health issues, all time. Keeping a record history will keep you check, on your health as whole. This will help you in framing a better healthy life.



Self Treatment Vs. Family Physician Treatment:

Say a big “NO” for any self treatment, may be its smaller one and can be cured with your knowledge. Fewer times, a look like smaller diseases,when not cured with proper diagnosis will turn to be costly in future when this should be fixed with high end technology equipments.

A Tip to carry your own treatment analysis is,  Keep a record of medical prescriptions written by your family physician. On top or backside of prescription do write for what disease the medicines are given for and also re-write the medicines name (as, doctors handwritten prescriptions are tougher to read and understand). With this activity you and your family members are kept well-informed about the diseases and its treatment.
Make sure you keep a word with your family physician in re-ordering the suggested medicines through earlier prescriptions.

Wishing every one, to have one good family physician and a healthy, wealthy life.

Take Poo to the Loo- Video Song by UNICEF India


UNICEF’s campaign Take Poo to the Loo has brought out the fight against open defecation – onto the streets and online; to industry, government bodies, academia and citizen groups, by roping in the strongest voices in the nation – the Youth. And this youth army now has a rousing mantra – India’s First Poo Song titled “Poo Party”. 

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO :-)



Composed by famous Indo-Jazz music composer, songwriter and producer Shrikanth Sriram (a Dewarist’s  artist who holds stunning compositions like the theme for the movie Life of Pi to his credit ), the song captures the brazenness and audacity of the Poo Man that irks and annoys his listeners. One feels a strong urge to put him in his rightful place by flushing him down the toilet. 

Speaking about the inspiration behind the music, Shri says “Ah Shit! The smell that brings me home very quickly with a thud! I would rather have the smell of Pav Baji bring me home. Anyone trying to do anything about public defecation needs to be supported fully. And the best I can do is to write some music to help.”

Composed  to shake-up and make one take action, the funky and animated song uses  ‘toilet sounds’ to show that if left to grow at its current pace, the disgusting reality of open defecation might multiply to a level where it starts invading your personal space. It might become a truth you wake up to every morning - bombarding your life during the day, and becoming a constant nightmare.  

“With this first poo song in the history of India, we have pushed the boundaries. Never before has open defecation been so visible through new media. This song demonstrates that you can talk about a very serious issue and challenge a deep rooted social norm in an accessible, fun way, and using everyday words common to young people,” states Caroline den Dulk, Chief Advocacy and Communication, UNICEF India.

Door Step Treatment for HIV Patients



Click Here for Watch Video



More than 930,000 women and 145,446 children include more than 2 million people in India who are living with HIV. In the western Indian state of Maharashtra, 126,000 women and 28,982 children are affected by the virus.


Women and children living with HIV like Sharda (name withheld) have to travel 30 km on average to reach the SION hospital in Mumbai for treatment. Travelling to the hospital from Nashik, is a monthly ordeal for Sharda and her daughter and she often misses four to five days of work in a month due to opportunistic infections and visits to the health centre. 


And every time, she visits Mumbai, she spends between 500 and 600 rupees ($9-11 dollars) on transportation. Money, she could have spent in buying food for her daughter. And in cases of emergency, the lives of the patients, especially children, are at risk.

In partnership with the Government of India, UNICEF with the support from MAC, is rolling out the pilot telemedicine project for children in Maharashtra. The initiative will ensure quality services are made available to families such as Sharda and her daughter at their nearest health centre.
