cells (2)

Stem cell therapy for heart diseases has gained momentum in India, in recent years. Stem cell therapy in Delhi has also been in news with several research and studies going on in this field. Stem cells which are considered the “force of nature” play a vital role in wound healing, organ growth and repair as well as rejuvenating the entire being. Stem cells which are the ‘basic cells’ of our bodies are the foundation cells for every organ, tissue and cells of the body. The first stem cells originate within the developing embryo. Stem cells from the bone marrow can develop into cardiac muscles as well as liver, nerve, fat and skin tissue.

For any ailment afflicting the heart, heart transplantation is seen as the final word. But with the growing success of stem cell treatment in india, there is another option available to heart patients. Ensuring quality life for heart patients from the first stage of medication until the final stage of treatment is the main intention of stem cell therapy. In stem cell therapy for heart diseases, stem cells are collected after filtering bone marrow which is then injected to the heart. Research is going on to find out whether the stem cells injected are transformed into heart cells or blood cells. But the treatment has been found to be a big success. Stem cell therapy in Delhi is being undertaken besides, Mumbai and Tamil Nadu.

Stem cell therapy in Delhi has reached new heights. For the first time in the country, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi has used stem cell therapy on 85 patients suffering from Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) and met with reasonable success. Dr. Sandeep Seth, Associate Professor at the Department of Cardiology, AIIMS, said that half of the 85 patients responded well to the treatment and their quality of life has definitely improved. He further added, “The findings are now being published in the coming issues of Journal of American College of Cardiology”.

10824454692?profile=originalDelhi based Cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Naresh Trehan also aired similar views. He said,” We have treated a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy last year with stem cells. Now after a year, the patient can walk for six minutes just like a normal person. We are hopeful that our efforts will prove fruitful”. Dr. Trehan further said that recent studies and surveys show that people in India are more prone to heart diseases compared to people residing in other countries. He also said that India is fast becoming a centre of heart diseases but added that they could be reversed by taking proper care of health.

Since heart transplant is not an easy surgery as it requires a donor, efforts are being made to treat the patient of dilated cardiomyopathy with stem cells. The stem cells are taken from the bone marrow and through retrograde profusion technique are infused into the arteries of the heart.

17 facts and myths about great skin


By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. "Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin," says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Contrary to some claims, exercise doesn't detoxify the skin. The job of neutralizing toxins belongs mostly to the  liver. "But by increasing blood flow, a bout of exercise helps flush cellular debris out of the system," Marmur tells WebMD. "You can think of it as cleansing your skin from the inside."

Exercise has also been shown to ease stress. "And by decreasing stress, some conditions that can be exacerbated by stress can show some improvement," says Brian B. Adams, MD, associate professor and director of the Sports Dermatology Clinic at the University of Cincinnati. Conditions that can improve when stress is reduced include acne and  eczema. Although researchers are still investigating the link between stress and skin, studies show that the sebaceous glands, which produce oil in the skin, are influenced by stress hormones.


I thought of starting this blog post after the following experience. Like how a suggestion from a friend helped me, I wish that this blog post including the comments would be of value to people. Most of the following isn't related to improving facial skin quality (do see the comments below for skin related updates):

I started going to gym in my apartment complex. During evening, I went to salon in my apartment complex. The owner is my friend. I asked about (glycerin + gulab jal + lemon) mix to apply on face for several pimples that have come on my face. He said I should try it. He also said to drink Safi. I said that I'm looking for a new gym since not working out regularly in recent weeks has probably also brought several pimples. He said that why don't I go to the one in my apartment complex. I said that I'll check it out which I did and they've serviced the equipment only a week ago. It's fine and moreover it saves my time a lot which I can use for dance class that I've wanted to join for a long while. Also, I've always wanted to go to gym twice in a day with cardio in morning and weight training in evening which I can try to do now much better.
After checking out the gym, I went to the salon and asked my friend to come along with me to workout on which the person said that the society doesn't allow them for which I felt very upset. I said I would try to speak with society management on which the person said that it has already been discussed. I wish this person can exercise regularly. I'm very thankful to this person for the suggestion. I also keep giving this person my suggestions on marketing and other things. I wish that we can be of value to each other for the long term.

I also spoke to a yoga teacher who had held a class for ladies in the community center. He's trying to setup a power yoga class for males and which I'm looking forward to if the batch can be made.
