Aren't you becoming a 'net patient'?

Aren't you becoming a 'net patient'?

Many people now go to the Internet for treatment according to their symptoms and go to the hospital for treatment. They believe more in what they find on the Internet than in consulting a doctor.

In the report, a doctor said, "Some people have been saying that I have cancer. Even doctors don't use the word cancer until they are convinced. '

Today, everyone uses the Internet to learn about the effects and uses of any medicine. No matter what field of the profession they are in, they do not consider themselves inferior to doctors.

The doctor said, "Once my sick relative called and angrily asked, 'Why did you prescribe this medicine?' He worked at the World Bank. He said that it is written on the internet as an anti-depressant drug. I'm not depressed. I reminded her that this medicine is not only anti-depressant but also has other benefits. But, you can't know everything about it by reading on the internet. '

If you search the internet for 'symptoms of brain tumor', it can cause symptoms like headache, vomiting, fainting, and insomnia. Some of the symptoms are similar to other diseases. Similarly, if you search for headaches, you will find many articles, what are the diseases related to headaches. This makes the patient more confused.

A psychiatrist says, ‘If a person searches Google according to his symptoms, he will find another disease that matches his symptoms. Symptoms of common to serious diseases are given on the internet. People are afraid that their symptoms will be associated with a serious illness. '

It increases the negative emotions in their minds. Some patients find information on the Internet about the medication they are taking and read about its side effects. Also, spend money on unnecessary tests. On the one hand, they are mentally harassed and on the other hand, seeking treatment is a waste of time and money.

There is a scene in the Hindi film Three Idiots after watching the video. This kind of practice is not complete in itself. Now, after watching the video, some people adopt the treatment method, which does not give good results.

Doctors say it is objectionable to have surgery after watching the video. Even physicians who have participated in many surgeries are very careful and cautious before performing the operation. Because this is not a normal job.

The sensitivity of any information given on the internet should be taken into consideration while following it in practical life.

Now the question arises, is it wrong to seek treatment for the disease on the internet? Shouldn't such a thing be done?

It is not advisable to seek any treatment or medicine according to the information available on the internet. Because physicians have studied the subject for many years. Information is acquired. Are experienced. So doctors are more reliable than the Internet.

According to doctors, those who seek treatment on the Internet are called 'Net Patients' or 'Google Doctors'.

You don't have to rely on the internet. However, you should not rely on the internet for sensitive issues. Even if you can get general information, you should not make the mistake of taking medicine and treatment based on it. Also, it is not appropriate to resort to the internet to find the disease according to your symptoms. This can lead to unnecessary stress.

Let's use the kitchen as a hospital and the food as medicine

Let's use the kitchen as a hospital and the food as medicine

Covid 19 weakens the human body's ability to fight disease. Covid-19 not only weakens the immune system but also promotes global food insecurity. Food experts say. "Unhealthy eating has led to an increase in malnutrition and an increase in the number of food-related illnesses," he said. The need to invest has increased.

The famous Greek physician Hippocrates described the food as follows: "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." Are paying attention to what is beneficial for.

Research has confirmed which countries were most affected by the Kovid-19 epidemic and their eating habits also affected the spread of the disease, sparking further debate about food. Even farmers can produce easily. With this in mind, we need to focus on crop production and marketing and reset our food system. Adequate attention needs to be paid to these two things, food and nutrition.

Science has confirmed that more nutritious and quality food has medicinal properties that help protect human health from disease. The Kovid-19 epidemic is causing our food system to fail. We need to work in different ways to strengthen the failed food system. We must now reconsider farming and launch a campaign to plant nutritious crops. The first step is to introduce such foods and establish them in the minds of everyone.

This is even more relevant in the case of Nepal. A food-dependent country like ours should be able to manage a vibrant food system in its own country that will improve the health of the people, help increase disease resistance and prevent the country from falling prey to food dependence. This is a great opportunity for Covid-19 to create this kind of strategy. In our country, there are ample possibilities to produce healthy food with medicinal properties quickly and cheaply. Due to our eating habits, these crops were being overshadowed and their production was declining. The state did not pay attention to research and development and we became more and more dependent on food.

It is important to cultivate the food crops that can be produced following the geographical environment of Nepal by identifying them well. Uva, Barley, Kodo, Fapar, Chino Caguno, Junello are the crops that are highly nutritious and have health benefits. These crops are ideal for small and medium-scale farmers.

There is a close relationship between our bodies and food. We need to pay more attention to this and work together to formulate effective policies to address the issue of food. Policies to promote multi-sectoral coordination among agriculture, health, and food stakeholders to promote healthy food. The mindset of the builders needs to change. We know that good food is the key to a long and healthy life. Multinational organizations such as the European Union and the World Health Organization must work to make good food a social responsibility.

According to the United Nations, about 6 million people, or eight percent of the world's population, were malnourished in 2019. If this trend continues, this number may increase to more than eight million in the coming years. Guterres, chief executive of the World Health Organization, said. Countries must develop programs that standardize food and nutrition services, implement conservation programs for those working in the sector, prioritize food supply chains, and strengthen the social security of young children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, the elderly, and other at-risk groups. He has advocated for the transformation of the food system for a more inclusive and sustainable world.

The kitchen is like a home hospital. Food prepared in the kitchen determines our health. We need to promote good food. What we are eating now is hurting us.
