June 21, 2013

OMICS Publishing Group is an open access publication that publishes various scientific articles in more than 200 open access journals.  OMICS Group publishes scientific journals and those are published through various categories such as Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and Management etc.

herbal-medicinesHerbal Medicines, which are made from plants, are used to treat various diseases and maintain good health. Now-a-days, most of the people prefer herbal medicines to cure their diseases. The herbal medicines healing are the oldest and are still most commonly used system of medicine in the world today.

There are many different “types” of herbal medicines that spring from different societies all over the globe. All these have the use of medicinal plants in typical, but they differ in the vegetation they use, the way they prepare and use drugs made from these plants, and the philosophy of their therapy techniques. Different societies may also use the same plants but differ in how they are used, or the aspect they use.

Can Herbs fight with Asthma?

Asthma is a breathing disorder recognized by constriction and inflammation of the air passages. Symptoms of asthma include coughing, difficulty in breathing and/or chest hardness. Bronchial asthma may be activated by substances (mold, pollen, dust); popular illness; cold air; exercise; or emotional stress.

Ayurveda categorizes the causes of asthma into three in accordance with the causes – Diet relevant aspects, work relevant aspects and other factors such as:

Dietary treatment

  • Taking in plenty of boiled water
  • Avoid over eating and fried foods
  • Avoid foods such as rice, curds and sugar
  • Avoid fruits such as banana, watermelon

Alternative Treatments

Asthma patients may reduce their need for chemical treatment prescriptions and inhalers through their way of life, nutritional changes and natural supplements.

  • Avoid exposure to cigarettes, outdoor and indoor pollution, and common allergens such as dust.
  • Avoid food preservatives and unhealthy foods. The diet should emphasize whole, organic foods as much as possible. Focus on reducing refined carbohydrate food like sugar and heavily prepared starches; hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils (which intervene with fatty acid metabolism); artificial foods preservatives, flavorings, sweeteners and fried foods.

Blood Clots in brain Prevention

June 20, 2013

OMICS Publishing Group is known for covering the latest updates and information pertaining to the scientific world. OMICS Group is an open access publisher with the concept of facilitating authors, scientists to place their work in the website.

blood-clotBlood clotting in brain, which causes stroke that is caused by an artery to the brain leads to its obstruction. The most common form of heart attack happens, when a blood clot blocks the coronary artery that provides heart muscle. There are four types of strokes, in that two are not related to clotting and the other two are related to blood vessel or artery.

The Flaws of Mainstream Therapies:

The most effective means of blood clot control is through avoidance. For patients who are at high-risk, mainstream prophylaxis against thrombosis and its problems often contains highly effective anti-clotting medicines. These require cautious tracking and undesirable dietary restrictions.

Conventional medicines used to avoid blood clotting, such as warfarin, increase the potential for serious blood loss as well as the chance of death rate from traumatic accidents. Moreover, warfarin may lead to long-term side effects, such as increased chance of atherosclerosis and osteoporosis.

Blood clot in brain is mainly caused due to

Platelets: Small pieces of larger tissues known as megakaryocytes, platelets flow through the blood vessels and carry important ingredients such as necessary proteins and other cellular signaling molecules. A platelet has a life expectancy of about 7–10 days.

Red Blood Cells: The common type of blood cell, red blood cells transport oxygen from the respiratory system and deliver it to all the cells of the body.

White Blood Cells: The cells of the immune system, white blood cells originate in the bone marrow as stem cells that differentiate into various types of immune cells.

Fibrin: A web-like proteinaceous gel, fibrin holds other elements of the clog together.

Reverse Osmosis and Removal of Minerals in Drinking Water

June 18, 2013

OMICS Publishing Group holds the distinction of publishing peer-reviewed, world-class scientific literature at free of cost without any need to subscribe to our journals. OMICS Group provides online free access to its journals and all the articles are highly qualitative and are peer-reviewed.

Reverse Osmosis, defined as the water treatment method traditionally known for removing salt from seawater, is also used to purify the water by forcing the organic water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane or filter. The membrane layer blocks contaminants and the impurities are subsequently expelled from the environment. The result is unpolluted drinking water.

Working of Reverse Osmosis:

reverse osmosisThe Reverse Osmosis membrane has a tight pore structure (less than 0.0001 micron or 500,000 times less than the size of a human hair) that effectively eliminates up to 99% of all contaminants and impurities such as total dissolved solids, substances, malware and bacteria from the water. Anti-microbial filters used in Reverse Osmosis also help to remove unwanted odors, colors and tastes from the water. Reverse Osmosis filtering system technology is so effective that it is used by most of the leading water bottling plants.

Benefits:

  • Pure, the water that is clean and ice cubes
  • Removal of unnecessary odors or tastes
  • More robust tasting drinks that are mixed with reverse osmosis are to be treated with the water (coffee, tea, etc.)
  • Needs minimal maintenance
  • While not practical for cleaning public drinking water, an in-home reverse osmosis system can be affordable when compared to other home purification methods

PureLux – A Unique Approach to Reverse Osmosis:

A typical Reverse Osmosis filtration includes a sediment or chlorine eliminating pre-filter, a semi-permeable membrane, a storage container and a triggered carbon as well as post-filter. However, these home purification systems only tend to operate at 5-20% of performance, significance for every ten gallons of the water handled, only one gallon of pure water is obtained. Also, the holding container used in many of the standard units can become a breeding for bacteria and other impurities after the purification process.

Inherited Metabolic Disorders

June 15, 2013

metabolic disordersInherited metabolic disorders are genetic circumstances that result in metabolism problems. Most people with inherited metabolic circumstances have a faulty gene that results in an enzyme deficiency. There are thousand varieties of genetic metabolic disorders; accordingly their symptoms, therapies and prognosis differ commonly.

Metabolism:

Metabolism represents all the substance reactions going on in the body to use energy. A few significant illustrations of metabolism include:

  • Breaking down the carbohydrate food, necessary protein and fats in food to release energy.
  • Transforming excess nitrogen into waste materials excreted in urine.
  • Breaking down or transforming substances into other ingredients and moving them inside tissues.

Metabolism is an organized but disorder substance that set up range. Raw components, half-finished products and waste materials are constantly being used, produced, transferred and excreted. The “workers” on the assembly line are enzymes and other necessary proteins that make chemical reactions may happen.

Causes of Inherited Metabolic Disorders:

In most metabolic conditions, only a single enzyme is either created or not by one’s body at all, or is produced in a type that doesn’t work. The losing enzyme is like an absentee worker on the assembly line. Based on that enzyme’s job, it indicates deficiency, harmful substances may develop up, or an important product may not be created.

The rule or strategy to generate an enzyme is usually included on a couple of genetics. Most people with inherited metabolic conditions acquire two defective copies of the gene  one from each parent. Both parents are “carriers” of the bad gene, significance they carry one defective copy and one regular copy.

Types of Inherited Metabolic Disorders:

Hundreds of metabolic conditions have been recognized, and new ones continue to be found. Some of the more typical and essential inherited metabolic conditions include:

1) Lysosomal storage disorders: Lysosomes are areas within tissues that break down waste materials of metabolism. Various enzyme inadequacies within lysosomes can result in accumulation of harmful ingredients, causing metabolic conditions including:

  • Hurler problem (abnormal bone framework and developing delay)
  • Niemann-Pick disease (babies develop liver organ enlargement and nerve damage)

Rhabdomyolysis

June 13, 2013

RhabdomyolysisRhabdomyolysis is a serious problem caused due to an immediate or oblique muscular damage. It results from breakdown of muscular tissues and release of their material into the bloodstream. This can cause many problems such as kidney (renal) failing. This happens when the kidney system cannot remove the waste and concentrated urine. In unusual situations, rhabdomyolysis can even cause loss of life. However, an immediate treatment often delivers a good result.

There are three different kinds of muscular in an individual body:

  • Smooth muscle,
  • Skeletal muscle, and
  • Heart muscle

Rhabdomyolysis Causes:

There are many causes of rhabdomyolysis. The most typical causes include:

  • The use of liquor or unlawful medication such as cocaine or amphetamines.
  • Excessive muscular stress, especially in someone who is an inexperienced sportsman. This can happen in elite athletes too, however. And it can be more risky if there is more muscular to break down.
  • Crush damage such as from an auto incident, drop or building collapse.
  • Long-lasting muscular pressure such as that due to relaxing subconscious on a hard area during sickness or while under the impact of liquor or medication.
  • The use of drugs such as corticosteroids or statins, especially when given in high doses.

Rhabdomyolysis Signs and Symptoms:

The following are common symptoms of rhabdomyolysis:

  • Painful, swollen, bruised or soft areas of the body
  • Muscular weak point or trouble in moving hands or legs
  • Common emotions of illness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • High temperature or lack of consciousness
  • Dark-colored urine; decreased or no urine output

Early complications of rhabdomyolysis include very high levels of potassium in the blood. This can cause an irregular pulse rate or heart attack. About one in four also develop issues with the liver organ. Later, rhabdomyolysis can also lead to renal failing. This occurs in about 15% of sufferers. A condition called compartment syndrome may also occur either early or later. This serious compression of nerve fibres, veins, and muscles can cause injury and issues with blood circulation.

Anencephaly

June 12, 2013

Anencephaly is a condition present at initial stages, that impacts the growth of the brain and the skull bone fragments that encompass the head. Anencephaly results in only minimal growth of the brain. Often, the brain does not have a part or the entire cerebrum (the area of the brain that is accountable for thinking point of view, listening to, touch, and movement). There is no bone protecting over the back of the head and there may also be missing bone fragments around the front and sides of the head.

Causes of Anencephaly:

AnencephalyAnencephaly is a kind of neural tube defect. Neural tube defects happen in about one of 1,000 child birth in the US each year.

During maternity, the human brain and spine begin as a smooth plate of tissues, which rolls into a tube, known as the neural tube. If all or a part of the neural tube is not able to close, leaving an opening, this is known as an open neural tube defect, or ONTD. This initiation may be left revealed (80 % of the time), or protected with bone or skin (20 % of the time).

Anencephaly and spina bifida are the most typical ONTDs, while encephaloceles (where there is a protrusion of the brain or it covers through the skull) are much more uncommon.

Symptoms of Anencephaly:

  • Lack of bones protecting over the back of the head
  • Missing bone fragments around the front and sides of the head
  • Folding of the ears
  • Cleft palate
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Some primary responses, but without the cerebrum, there can be no awareness and the child cannot survive.

Treatment for new born babies suffering with Anencephaly:

Until now, there is no treatment or standard therapy for anencephaly. If treatment exists, it would be very helpful. Because experiencing the loss of a child can be very distressing. Grief counseling services are available to help you deal with the loss of your child.

Blood Clots in Brain

June 11, 2013

blood clot in brainA blood clot in the brain can cause an Ischemic stroke, a stroke that is caused by an artery to the brain becoming obstructed and a part of the brain of oxygen and nutrients being starving. A clot in the brain can also cause an increase of cellular waste and co2, because the brain will not be able to clear this waste properly. This can cause the cells around the obstacle to die, and the nerves in this part of the brain stop working, which can cause damage throughout the body. If you suppose that you have a blood clot in the brain, immediate treatment is necessary to avoid a deadly condition.

Causes of Blood Clots in Brain:

  • Head injuries or trauma to the mind, head and neck can cause these clots to form in the brain. Blood clotting in the brain are caused when swelling occurs between the skull and the mind. The body will form a clot to stop the swelling, which will put pressure on the surrounding mind tissue. Trauma to the head can also cause blood clots formed outside of the mind to break, become loose and lodged in the mind, which can cause an ischemic stroke.
  • Traveling clots from other areas of the body to a blood vessel results in blockage of mind, that can lead to an embolic stroke or cerebral embolism. These travelling clots are more likely to cause damage to other areas of the body before they reach the mind.
  • Narrowing or hardening of the arteries, commonly known as atherosclerosis can increase somebody’s weakness to develop a clot in the brain. Solidified arteries are at risk of tearing as they push blood vessels, which can cause a clot to form in the broken area, so that blood vessels do not flow into the body. These clots can stop blood circulation to the simplified artery, causing damage to the surrounding cells.
  • Swelling of a superficial vein can also cause an increased risk of blood clotting. If a vein is damaged due to a high trauma injury, it can become infected. An infection in the vein can also cause this type of inflammation which will reduce the blood circulation to the surrounding parts of the body.
