What a better way to engage your toddler than with these super fun at home toddler activities! Read our go-to checklist for enjoyable activities that your toddler would thank you for!

 

Using All Senses

  • At this stage your toddler explores the environment around him/her through their senses. For example: their sense of sound, smell, taste, touch, and sight are a way to understand their surroundings while interacting with others. 
  • So, sensory activities can help your toddler develop good fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination along the way.
  • One special at home sensory activity would be to put some pasta or beans in a larger container with measuring cups or scoops. Your toddler can then scoop the pasta and fill it in another small container. Check out these super fun sensory activities

 

Reading Activities

  • Another engaging at home toddler activity is reading! Reading boosts creativity, enriches reasoning and vocabulary skills.
  • Not to mention that reading activities are essential to help your toddler connect sounds to words – a key skill in developing literacy foundation.
  • Also, reading books and stories that include special rhyme and repetition are a great example. Let your toddler take the lead and set their imagination free!

 

Pump Up The Heart!

  • According to the Dubai Health Authority, toddlers need around 180 minutes per day of active physical activity.
  • Physical activity, even if done at home, can reduce stress and build up strong muscles and bones.
  • Whether doing yoga moves, or dancing to a song, the opportunities are endless! Check out these 15 indoor activities! 

 

At home toddler activities can be fun and engaging. Remember to experiment with different activities and observe which ones your toddler likes!

An elderly woman smiles at her caregiver

At Manzil Health, our senior caregivers provide outstanding senior care to you or to your loved ones. No matter how gracefully one has aged – the natural, cognitive and physical abilities start to decline. Your health begins to deteriorate as you mature, and at such times you need help.

While it may be hard for you to accept assistance, rest assured that there is no shame in reaching out. An extra pair of hands could keep a check on your health. 

If you or an elderly family member requires medical help, call us on 800 626 945 or contact us here. Our team of qualified caregivers and nurses will provide the utmost medical care you need!

 Senior Caregiver Types 

  • Those who give authorized medical assistance and drugs
  • Those who only help with non-medical related stuff , for example: doing the laundry, dish washing, preparing meals, administering medicines, and assisting in physical exercise

These senior caregivers can come to your home, spend a couple of hours and make sure everything is taken care of before they leave. Moreover, you can even opt for caregivers that stay with you at your place, and have the needed assistance available at all times. 

Certified, in-home caregivers are trustworthy and reliable. You need not worry about anything except communicating all your requirements to them. 

What Falls Under Medical Senior Care?

If you are confused about whether a senior caregiver is what you need, find out below what a medically trained caregiver can do for you and how it makes your life easier.

Daily activity advisory chart

A senior caregiver will draw up daily charts listing down the levels of activity and exercise that you need to stay in the best shape. As a result, the caregiver will have a history of your physical health and advise you accordingly.

Medication management

Only a certified nurse or practitioner can administer specific dosages intravenously. In that case, our senior caregivers will stay on top of your medical conditions and adjust your treatment/ medication accordingly. 

Pain management

You might be prone to chronic joint pains and back pains that come with age. So, with careful medications and necessary exercises, you can manage and control the pain. Moreover, the pain won’t interfere with the quality of life. 

Physiotherapy

Senior caregivers can help you with the needed physiotherapy. As a result, this will prevent stiff joints and muscles. Also, it’s recommended not to do this alone to prevent injuries.

Catheter Management

If you have a catheter attached, it is very important to keep it clean all the time. Especially if it is an indwelling one, so draining, washing, and changing the urine bags is an essential task.

Wound Care

If there are external and internal wounds from an injury, fall, or post-surgery, the nurse or practitioner will keep an eye on it and monitor its healing.

Nurses, caregivers, and practitioners at Manzil Health are highly qualified and trained to perform these duties. If you need any assistance, call us on 800 626 945 or reach out to us!

Baby after birth

Postnatal care (PNC) is an essential form of care for a mother and child following childbirth. Although not all moms, families, and babies face complications after delivery, having a proper postnatal care protocol is still vital for every family post-delivery. It is provided to a new mother and her infant to ensure that their recovery does not deviate from the expected course of recuperation.

The postnatal period is typically the first six weeks of life after a baby is born; however, it can be extended if need be. If a mother and infant contract complications after the standard postnatal period is over, they remain entitled to individualized care.

Every mother and her child must receive standardized patient care for at least 6-8 weeks after the child’s birth. In case of improper or poor-quality care, new mothers and their babies can develop disabilities or even lose their lives. In Africa, each year, 125,000 women and 870,000 newborns die due to poor postnatal care.

Postnatal care programs are specifically designed to monitor a mother’s recovery and her child’s growth in the first few weeks after birth. Ideally, PNC should be provided for 28 days or more, but if in a region that’s not possible, then the mother-child duo must be looked after carefully for at least the first week after childbirth.

The first seven days following childbirth (also known as the early neonatal period) are the toughest for a mother and her infant. The risk of death and post-delivery complications are the highest in this period. With that said, a mother and child can develop health issues even after the early neonatal period.

Why do Mothers and Babies require Postnatal Care (PNC)?

The first and foremost objective of providing PNC is to avoid maternal or neonatal death at all costs. Since the first few weeks, after childbirth, are considered a high-risk period for both a mother and her neonate, doctors and medical professionals focus all their attention toward keeping them alive.

A woman can lose a lot of blood during or post-delivery due to internal bleeding or hemorrhage. If the uterus tears or site where the placenta was attached to the uterus rips during labor, a mother loses a significant amount of blood that can be fatal in some cases. And if hemorrhage occurs in the mother’s body while her child is still in the womb, the baby will not get nutrients and ultimately die. Hence, it is imperative that a mother and her neonate are saved from any such deadly complications with effective PNC.

Another reason why mothers and newborns require PNC is to stay healthy and recover without getting an infection or life-long condition. Since a mother’s body goes through multiple internal changes to get to its pre-pregnancy stage after childbirth, it must be given plenty of patient care to ensure that no complications occur. For the baby, the first breath outside of the uterus can be dangerous as the child’s body has to adjust to the outside world. If a baby is not given proper PNC, it can suffocate or contract an infection as its immune system is quite weak after the birth.

Preferably, a mother and her newborn should be tended to in a hospital. However, in most cases, families take their loved ones home in fear of exposure to germs. Regardless of the place, a mother’s and her child’s recovery must be religiously followed under medical supervision to avoid death or other dire complications.

Sick man with IV

Ventilators are the line between life and death for patients. It is the thread that binds a patient to the world, long enough for their respiratory tracts to heal enough and enable them to breathe on their own. Luckily, now we have the luxury of providing the ventilation at home, where the sick and elderly who desperately need the machine can make use of it without being confined to a hospital. Many places, like Manzil Health, can provide you with the service at home, so you and your family members can spend these trying times in happy company and a familiar environment. 

There are countless diseases out there that could seriously damage your lungs and other respiratory organs, making the most basic task of ‘breathing’ a chore for many. Trouble breathing could also be a side effect of other diseases that indirectly affect your breathing capability. Insufficient intake could worsen the disease, reduce the body’s capacity to fight the disease and lead to an unnecessary and easily preventable death.

Sometimes, unfortunately, ventilators are used to keep very sick people alive, when their bodies have stopped working on their own. Life support like that can allow the families and friends to say their final goodbyes to the person and make necessary arrangements before the ventilator is taken off. 

Till a few years ago, a person on the ventilator can only be limited to the hospital. Because the machine is so important to keep them alive, the person can’t move or do much else. Which is sad, because it is proven that sick patients fare better and heal quicker when they are in a comfortable environment like their homes, surrounded by family to cheer them. Likewise, many people would like to spend their last remaining days at the comforts of their home, with their beloved families. The positive news is that now it can happen!

Benefits of Ventilation at Home

  • It increases community and family integration, which can prove to be very helpful in keeping the spirit of the sick up and let them heal quicker. 
  • Increases social interactions that enhance your loved one’s quality of life, and boost willpower and motivation to fight to get better and for their life
  • The patient faces reduced exposure to infections that are hospital-borne. These include MRSA/MDRO, which can be more deadly for deadly and vulnerable children.
  • For children, when they live with their parents and family, it greatly enhances their development and improves the quality of their relationships with family and friends. Cooped up in a hospital room is no way for a child to live.

If you or one of your family members need a ventilator, but do not want to become encaged in a hospital room, let us bring the ventilator at your home. Manzil’s Ventilation at Home Program has experienced doctors and nurses that can take care of the sick while ventilating from home. The program is made available to people of all ages, from children to the elderly, and everybody stands to benefit from it. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, our team will gladly assist you. Contact us now!

Palliative care is individualized care that’s provided to a person suffering from a life-threatening disease. It is employed to ensure a better quality of life for the patient. Since fatal conditions don’t have a cure, people suffering from such disorders are given specialized care to ease their symptoms and reduce pain.

 Living with a terminal disease can be harrowing for not just the individual suffering from it but also for their family. Although palliative care primarily targeted towards the patient, it also works to provide relief to the patient’s family.

Palliative care includes a wide variety of therapies and treatments that work on a patient’s mental, physical, and emotional maladies brought by a deadly illness. Palliative care is provided by a trained team of medical experts that work under the supervision of the patient’s doctor. Also, it doesn’t focus on prognosis; instead, it caters to a patient’s needs. Here is what palliative care seeks to achieve.

Improved Quality of Life

Life with a fatal disease is one that’s quality has been compromised. By employing palliative care, healthcare professionals seek to ease a patient’s symptoms and reduce stress. Some of the most common illnesses for which palliative care is provided are cancer, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and many more.

Better Response to Treatment

Since palliative care teams work closely with a patient’s doctor, they make sure that the treatment plan devised for the patient is well-suited with the patient’s needs. That is, palliative teams immediately inform doctors to change any medication or radiation therapy if the patient’s body doesn’t respond to it well. This allows doctors to come up with a treatment plan that works with the patient’s internal systems and not against them. As a result, the body generates a better response to the treatment.

Prepare the Family

 If someone in a family is suffering from a terminal illness, the relatives have a hard time dealing with it. Family members don’t only have to help their loved one get through life with a disease, but they also have to prepare themselves for the death of the patient. All of that can be a lot for a family, which is why palliative care professionals look after the family as well as the patient.

Palliative care teams don’t just take away some of the burdens of looking after a sick family member, but they also help the family prepare for the patient’s death. They remind the family that there are getting close to losing their beloved member so they should be ready for it at all times. Furthermore, they provide counseling to help families grieve and accept reality.

The Takeaway

If you have a family member who is suffering from a debilitating fatal disease, then you must seek palliative care for them and yourself. Asking for help doesn’t make you selfish or insensitive. Looking after a sick family member can be a lot for anyone, seeking a little help to do that is justified.

Remember that palliative care teams are professionals and hence, are better equipped to take care of your unwell family member than you are. So, don’t delay and look for PNC programs today.

Make sure there is enough space in your house for a physiotherapy session

If you are considering physiotherapy at home, it serves multiple purposes. In many cases, it is the only way to fix certain problems such as body aches and pain, to increase the range of motion and the flexibility of the body, to correct posture, and improve strength. It is often recommended by doctors after spine surgeries, muscle spasms, and to treat nerve inflammation and arthritis.

When done at home, rather than at a clinic, you have the added advantage of being completely relaxed during your therapy sessions. Manzil Health provides licensed nurses and physiotherapists that will guide you on your journey to better recovery and healing. Keep reading to know more how you can benefit from your physiotherapy.

Contact us now to know more about this service!

Wear Appropriate Clothing

One of the reasons physiotherapy at home is so convenient is that you get to be perfectly comfortable and relaxed. Even so, you must wear appropriate clothing for the therapy session.

Typically, any pair of shorts with a tank top would do. Your body needs to be relaxed, and you will need to stretch it, so make sure you can do so in whatever you choose to wear.

Decide On a Good Spot

Before your therapist shows up for your session, make sure that you find a spot in your house, away from all distractions and quiet, so that you have no disturbances throughout the session.

The space that you choose should have sufficient light and should be large enough for your therapist to adjust her table and any equipment she may have brought in.

Think About Your Goals Prior To The Session

Before beginning your at-home physiotherapy session, you may want to take some time to figure out why you opted for physiotherapy in the first place. 

Perhaps your doctor has prescribed it to you, because of some problem with your body posture or because you suffer from knee pain.

Perhaps you want to start lifting weights again, and your doctor has told you that you cannot do so until your pain lessens, owing to the therapy.

Think about the problem you may have, and how it may be affecting your daily life, or limiting your daily activities. 

Once you are done with this self-evaluation, make sure that you bring your therapist on board with it, so that the therapist knows precisely which areas to focus on. 

Make Sure You Do Your Homework

Even after your therapy session, in order to help you recover more quickly, your therapist will most likely recommend that you do some exercises at home regularly.

So do take out the time to do them!

Physiotherapy at home has its advantages in that you find yourself in a far more relaxed environment. Remember, you will have to work with your therapist if you want to recover faster.

Make sure there is enough space in your house for a physiotherapy session

If you live by yourself, or if your partner has to go to work, you may have to become self-sufficient in order to take care of yourself after major surgery. We can also help! Our specialized Manzil Health clinicians can offer daily visits or extended holistic plan of care covering all the aspects of taking care of your wound so you can heal and be at your best! Contact us for more details.

Keep in mind these tips on how to care for yourself after surgery to get you started on your road to recovery.

Observe and Take Care Of Your Incision Site

  • Your incision site is the part of your body that was operated on during surgery. If you see a yellowish-orange liquid coming out of the incision site, you do not need to worry as this is normal and to be expected. 
  • It is also normal to expect some redness around the bruise, and you do not need to worry because of this.
  • If, however, you feel as though the pain isn’t subsiding for a week after the surgery, or if the pain is getting worse, or even if there’s a strange odor or pus coming out of the incision site, it’s possible that you may have an infection. In such a situation, you should contact your doctor.
  • Also, when you care for yourself after surgery you must change the dressing on the incision site as many times a week as your doctor has recommended. It is also important that you keep your incision site as clean as you possibly can. If your incision site starts to bleed, you will have to change the bandage.  If the bleeding is excessive, though, it’s possible that the stitch may have torn, and just in case, you should contact your doctor.
  • If your doctor permits, you can even try showering, but if not, you can take a wet sponge to clean your incision site from time to time, before reapplying the bandage. Make sure that the incision area does not remain moist, though, at least for the first few weeks after surgery.

Care For Yourself After Surgery And Your Body

  • Regardless of the type of surgery, it will take at least a few days before you can become mobile again.
  • Caring for yourself after surgery,  if you live alone, is more important than ever. Take extra precautions to care for yourself. For example, make sure that you don’t have to climb any stairs for the first few weeks, at least.
  • If you live in a two-story home, you should most probably move to the downstairs section and stay there for your entire recovery period. It’s likely that you’ll be taking very strong pain medicines in the period after your surgery, and your body is likely to be imbalanced and not too steady, so moving around too much is not recommended at all.

Surgery isn’t an enjoyable experience for anyone. But it is essential that you relax as much as possible and take care of yourself after surgery so that your wound heals properly and you can recover. 

Using these tips, you can care for yourself after surgery and, in no time at all, get back on your own two feet!

Empathy, compassion, and respect are important qualities in any home aid

Nowadays, there is a trend of moving away from nursing homes and more toward at-home senior care services. As our parents and grandparents age, they require an increased amount of our time and assistance. Unfortunately, our busy lives prevent many of us from being able to dedicate too much time to our elderly.

As such, people tend to leave their elderly in nursing homes where they can be properly and professionally looked after by nurses and medical staff. 

Here are some things to keep in mind when hiring such a service.

The Right Attitude

Anyone you hire to take care of your elderly must exhibit signs of professionalism, empathy, compassion, and, most importantly, respect.

Respect for the elderly can be very rarely found in modern societies. Remember, your parent or grandparent deserves only the best. And you need to hire an at-home senior care service that treats them well, tending to their every need, without ever being disrespectful.

It’s easy to sometimes lose patience with the elderly, which is why empathy is also such an essential trait for any at home senior care service you decide to hire.

Whoever you hire must be kind-hearted and compassionate in order to patiently deal with your elderly parent or grandparent’s every need.

Experience

The more experienced your at-home senior aide is, the better they can take care of your elderly parent or grandparent. In fact, any at home senior care service you hire should be as skilled in dealing with the elderly as any professional nursing home would be.

There are a number of services that are absolutely essential for a senior care service to offer. This includes grooming, feeding, medical aid, helping them with their daily chores, helping them dress up, etc.

Professionalism

This is yet another very important quality required of any at-home senior aide. Professionalism is important for apparent reasons. 

Someone who is responsible for taking care of your elderly loved one needs to show up every day, and at the appropriate time so that you can leave for work in the knowledge that your parent or grandparent is in good hands and is being well cared for. 

The aide must also refrain from using their cell phone when at work or socially interacting with their friends. They should be there with the elderly at all times, in case they need help with something.

 

At-home senior care services can be far more practical and useful than nursing homes, but before you hire one, make sure they meet these above criteria.

Call us at 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit our website for more information.

An appointment journal

Patients often hear medical professionals talk about levels of care, but not many know much about those levels. Healthcare is divided into four levels; primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary. Doctors use these different categories to distinguish between the complexities of medical cases and the level of care they require.

 As a patient, knowing about the different forms of care protocols can help in understanding the severity of one’s condition or the lack thereof. Simply put, if you end up in a hospital and the doctor tells you, you require a particular level of care, you can ascertain the seriousness of your condition by it.

If you get primary care, then it means what you have is not too dangerous and can be treated with generalized care. However, if you get any other level of patient care, then it could indicate the presence of a more severe ailment. Hence, one must learn about the four levels of healthcare to better understand the workings of the world of medicine.

Primary Care

Primary care is a generalized form of care in which, typically, a person is examined for a medical issue by a general physician or practitioner. Since the degree of impairment in a case that requires primary care is not too high, patients in need of medical attention are tended to by general doctors.

 A person getting their blood drawn by a nurse

Primary care professionals involve GPs, dentists, pediatricians, nurses, and OB/GYNs. Some of these medical experts specialize in taking care of specific groups of people, but their main focus is to enhance a person’s overall health and reduce the chances of hospitalization.

Primary care is the most basic form of medical attention, and it has shown to benefit the healthcare system considerably by reducing ER visits and long-term hospital admissions.

Secondary Care

The second level of healthcare is secondary care. When a doctor refers a patient to a specialist, the patient enters the next stage of patient care. In this stage, a person is tended to by an expert in the area that’s making them sick. Secondary care specialists focus on particular systems and parts of the body. For instance, a cardiologist is an expert on medical issues related to the human heart. Similarly, a gastroenterologist specializes in treating ailments related to the gut or gastrointestinal system of the body.

Tertiary Care

Tertiary care comes after a person is hospitalized, and they require a higher level of care that goes beyond a specific body part or system. Once a patient is hospitalized, their bodily functions are monitored via medical equipment round the clock.

Tertiary care requires an advanced level of medical expertise and high-tech machines.

Quaternary Care

The last form of healthcare is quaternary, and it is an extension of tertiary care. Quaternary care is not offered at every hospital as it requires highly-advanced equipment and procedures. It’s not a usual form of patient care as it is only employed when traditional treatments fail to ease a patient’s symptoms. It might include drug trials and experimental medical treatments.

Most people only come across primary and secondary medical professionals throughout their lives. However, in case of a severe injury or accident, a person may be given tertiary care.

Diabetes is the leading cause of multiple fatal diseases and accounts for approximately 3.8 million deaths annually. However, all these grim effects of diabetes come by if a person doesn’t manage their condition effectively. Manzil Health licensed nurses provide an outstanding at home diabetes care and management to help your loved ones on their road to recovery.

Most people consider living with diabetes debilitating, but with proper care and a few lifestyle changes, one can lead a wholesome life even with the complicated medical condition.Aside from religiously following the standard insulin treatment for diabetes, a person with diabetes must also make some healthy lifestyle changes to manage their condition more efficiently. 

Here are the top nine tips for an effective diabetes care and management.

Don’t Miss your Meds

A person with diabetes must never skip their daily dose of insulin or whichever medicine they have been prescribed to ensure controlled blood sugar levels. Make sure you unfailingly follow your diabetes treatment plan as advised by your doctor.

Give up Smoking

Smoking is injurious to the health of even the healthiest individuals let alone a person with diabetes. If you have diabetes, quit smoking to save yourself from any future complications from the chronic condition.

Keep your Cholesterol levels and Blood Pressure under Control

 High cholesterol and blood pressure can damage the blood vessels in a person’s body. And that risk of vessel damage, due to cholesterol and BP, is increased if a person has diabetes. Hence, keep your cholesterol and blood pressure in check.

If you don’t manage your lipids and BP then, combined with diabetes, they can lead to a heart attack or even a stroke.

Manage your stress

High levels of stress can worsen symptoms of diabetes in a person. Make sure you keep your stress at bay. Also, include exercise in your daily routine so that your mind releases endorphins in copious amounts and subsequently, keeps your mood elevated.

Drink Alcohol Reasonably

Alcohol consumption directly impacts the sugar level in a person’s bloodstream, depending on how much is consumed. If you drink alcohol, make sure to do so in controlled quantities to avoid any complications later.  

Eat Healthily

Eliminating highly processed foods from your diet, if you have diabetes, is essential to prevent complications. Make sure you have lots of whole foods and avoid sugary items as much as you can.

Eating healthy controls the cholesterol levels in the bloodstream and consequently keeps the heart-healthy.

Visit your Eye Doctor Frequently

Look after your eye health by visiting your ophthalmologist regularly. Diabetes increases the risk of eye infections and other optical conditions. Hence, make sure your eyes are functioning correctly by getting them checked periodically.

Keep up with your Vaccines

Diabetes can increase the chances of numerous illnesses. Therefore, follow your vaccine plan to the dot and be at the top of your overall health.

Look after your Teeth

Another effective way for diabetes care and management is to look after your teeth! Just like your eyes, diabetes can damage the teeth as well. Thus, you must regularly brush your teeth and floss them every night. And if you notice unusual bleeding or swelling in your gums then visit your dentist right away.

 

The Outlook

Diabetes is undoubtedly a scary disease that keeps patients on edge at all times. But with medication and healthy lifestyle choices, people with diabetes can enjoy their lives to the fullest.

It is important that you take your child for routine doctor visits

Taking care of your child’s health needs is crucial for his/her healthy growth! Babies are entirely weak and vulnerable when they are born. As a parent, it’s your responsibility to make sure that your baby is well cared for so that they grow up to be healthy and strong adults.

If you’re a new mother on the road for a post-delivery recovery, then Manzil Health Mother & Baby at-home service is just for you! We are dedicated to support you along the way and take the utmost care of your precious newborn. Call us now on 800 626 945 or click here to know more details.

Here are some ways you can take care of the healthcare needs of your child, whether they are newborns or at a young stage. 

Don’t Skip On Breastfeeding

It is common nowadays to feed packaged milk to even a young baby. Breastfeeding remains to be as important today as it was in the olden times.

In fact, breastfeeding is the first thing that you should focus on when your child is born. Breastfeeding is important because it provides your child with all the necessary nutrients in the right amounts.

It makes sure that your child is protected from all sorts of infections and even major diseases such as cancer, and that they grow up to be healthy and strong.

Healthy Eating is Key

Being a parent can be pretty challenging at times, especially when it comes to making sure your child remains healthy and strong. Take care of your child’s health needs should involve a healthy balanced diet. This diet combines all of the food groups, and helps your child avoid all unhealthy snacking.

There are so many packaged goods available in stores that can be absolutely detrimental to the health of your child. From an early age, you need to make sure that your child consumes a balanced diet – which can have positive long-term effects on their growth.

Eating healthy will ensure that your child won’t get sick all that often because their body will be fit.

Encourage an Active Lifestyle

Taking care of your child’s health needs should involve a healthy active lifestyle! While children are usually packed with energy and love playing outdoor games, recent advancements in technology have converted even the most energetic children into couch potatoes.

In fact, being lazy makes children physically unfit. As a result, their bodies become vulnerable to all sorts of illnesses. An active lifestyle can help prevent most major health issues.

Routine Doctor Visits

Make it a habit to take your child to the doctor for a checkup once every 3-4 weeks, especially when they are still young. With younger children, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. If there is something wrong, the doctor can prescribe medicines so that your child feels better right away.

If our child tells you that they don’t feel too great, don’t ask any more questions and take them to the doctor right away.

Remember, the younger your children are, the more likely it is that they get sick. So, these effective tips can help you take good care of their health care needs.

Taking out a little time for exercise is good for your mental and physical health

With the COVID-19 pandemic on the rise and the number of cases increasing rapidly each day, it’s essential to take measures every day to care for your mental health.

Here are 4 things you can do to care for your mental health to navigate this crisis smoothly.

Get Enough Sleep

  • Getting enough sleep is important as it helps stop you from overthinking. The right amount of sleep also helps your body stay as healthy as it can.
  • Remember, a healthy body can ward off illnesses far more easily than one that is weak. If you get enough rest, your immune system will be stronger, and you will be far more resistant to illnesses.
  • Knowing that your body is better equipped to fight off illnesses is likely to give you peace of mind.Getting enough sleep, especially during the current pandemic, will also help you better maintain a routine so that you can sleep early, wake up early, and make your days more productive

Get Some Sunlight

  • In times such as these, with the pandemic rising globally, people often spend their days in bed, lying down aimlessly. This sort of routine can be detrimental for both your mental and physical body. Not getting any sunlight will only serve to make you feel more depressed and will most likely harm your body because of a lack of Vitamin D. 
  • Once every day, make sure that you step outside in the sunlight, perhaps for an evening walk. Make a habit of this, and you will see marked improvements in your mental state of being.

Exercise Regularly

  • To care for your mental health, try to maintain a regular exercise routine. This one doesn’t require much explanation. Sadly, becoming a couch potato isn’t going to do your mental or physical health any favors.If nothing else, you can do stretches on your balcony daily, at the start of your day, or in the evening.
  • Exercise is obviously great for keeping your body active, but it also stimulates your mind. Exercise improves the circulation of blood throughout your body and to your brain. As a result, you are less likely to feel anxious or depressed.

Maintain Familiar Routines For Children

  • If you’re a parent, the WHO recommends maintaining familiar routines with your children.
  • Help them focus with their online learning, and express their creativity with engaging play time and educational activities. Organize screen time in a way that doesn’t compromise their play time outdoors or reading books… 

Think Positive

  • Easier said than done, right? While that may be true, our mind is far more powerful than we give it credit for. Let’s say you are starting to feel ill. You may have this fear that you will catch the illness, and you can’t stop thinking that you and your loved ones are going to die.
  • Take a breather. Know that it’s okay to be afraid. Everyone is. Meditate regularly and take deep breaths. Tell yourself that everything is going to be okay. 
  • And little by little, you will feel better. Remember, in times of illness, take it one day at a time and make survival your only goal. Everything else should be secondary.

Take care and remember that your health – mental or physical – is paramount!

Woman suffering from postpartum depression

Postpartum depression is different from the regular baby blues. Identifying and treating postpartum depression is crucial, so the mother can return to a normal and healthy lifestyle, and be there for the child that needs her.

At Manzil Health, we realize how serious postpartum depression can be. For this reason, we have a full support system for new moms who don’t know what they are dealing with. There is no shame in admitting these feelings and asking for help. Our trained nurses can stay with you, counsel you, and take care of your baby while you are unable to. Reach out; we are here to help! 

Call us at 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit  our website for more information.

Postpartum depression can happen for a number of reasons, but once there, it can interfere in the life of the new mother severely. Common sentiments of a woman going through PPD are :

  • extreme sadness for no apparent reason
  • insecurity about her post-pregnancy body
  • anxiety and fear about the child’s future
  • constant guilt about not being ‘good enough’ for her child, or being a bad mother

While none of these things may be true, it is very real inside her head, and she needs help even if she appears normal on the outside. If you identify some of the symptoms in yourself, reach out and confide in someone. Discuss it with your gynecologist, who might send you to a therapist. If a woman who has given birth around you is acting weird, talk to her.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Postpartum Depression

Baby Blues Not Ending

If your baby blues haven’t ended by two months, maybe you should take someone onboard. Normal baby blues do not last this long. If you have not felt the intensity of feelings such as fear or sadness, weaken with time, talk to your clinicians.

Trouble Sleeping

If you are having trouble sleeping, despite being exhausted, or if you feel exhausted and lethargic ALL the time, there is definite cause to worry. A drastic change in sleeping patterns is a classic sign of depression.

Neglecting Mommy Duties

Postpartum depression  might not feel like you have the energy to do these things, or your mind just cannot focus on what needs to be done.

This is when things start getting serious. If you start ignoring your baby’s needs and are not feeding them on time, or changing them properly, suspect that something is wrong. 

Thoughts of Self-Harm

If you have suicidal thoughts or thoughts of harming yourself or the baby, your postpartum depression has progressed a lot, and you are a risk to yourself and a baby. You need help and it’s ok to ask for it. Share how you feel with someone you trust and let them help you!

A mother and child look at each other with their noses touching

The first year of your baby’s life is perhaps the most beautiful and precious to you. However, it’s an equally important time in your baby’s life. Charting your baby’s growth can be a delightful experience for new parents.

As much as you are enjoying watching your baby’s next move, you’re constantly scared that time is moving too fast. So, you savor every second to spend with your child, record his first laugh, and yelp when they say ‘mama.’ 

Throughout the growth process, your baby is:

  • learning something new
  • developing different senses every day
  • getting to know the world from a limited perspective, and getting to memorize your faces
  • the brain and senses are still developing and growing

What a child is exposed to in these early years reflect in their personality as they grow up. It’s exciting to watch your baby grow, and observe the fascinating development. Here’s a detailed checklist for charting your baby’s growth develops throughout the first six months.

Charting Your Baby’s Growth

1st month: Your baby starts to communicate in his own way by making sounds, mumbling, gurgling, and experimenting with his /her own tongue, hands, and feet. 

2nd month: Your baby stays awake for longer stretches of time, and smiles a lot, perhaps even laughs. Their bowels are getting bigger too, so you don’t have to be on nappy duty constantly.

3rd month: Your baby can turn around on his stomach now, and recognize the direction of sounds. He/she is also going to be laughing out loud by this time and will reach out to you to pick him up.

4th Month: Your baby can now keep her head propped up by himself. He/she can reach out and grab objects and can bear the weight of his body on his/her legs, play with their toes and possibly even utter their first words.

5th month: At this stage of charting your baby’s growth, your baby can now recognize sounds, shapes, and colors. He/she can understand object permanence now and is delighted by a game of peekaboo. You can also start feeding him/her semi-solid foods by now.

6th Month: Your baby’s vision and hearing are completely developed by now. He/she can even sit unsupported and might be about to sprout hisher first tooth!

If you need any help supporting your child or need someone to help out with any chores around the house, Manzil Health has trained nannies, mother coaches, and nurses to help you through this beautiful yet exhausting time of your baby’s birth.

Call us at 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit  our website for more information.

Good nutrition and plenty of rest can get you through the first few weeks after delivery

While giving birth is often depicted as being one of the most beautiful marvels of life, the reality isn’t all that pretty. In fact, many women forget to take care of themselves properly after giving birth. So, as a result their physical and mental health suffers.

At Manzil Healthcare Services, we understand how difficult it can be to care for a newborn baby while you’re still recovering. We provide all sorts of child-care services at home so that you and your baby remain in optimal health. Our services include:

  • bathing
  • feeding
  • bathing
  • diaper changing
  • putting your baby to sleep

So, while you rest, we take care of your baby! Call us at 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit  our website for more information.

Here are some ways you can take care of yourself after giving birth:

Get Enough Rest

As a new mother, you’ll soon realize that your baby’s resting needs are drastically different to your own. Typically, a newborn will wake up every three hours and will need to be fed, loved, and their diaper will have to be changed. 

If this is your first baby, you are probably going to feel as though you’re in over your head. No matter the time of day, you will always feel tired because you won’t be getting enough rest.

Most young mothers are stubborn when it comes to letting anyone else take care of their baby. They keep telling themselves they can do everything, and in this process, they end up tiring themselves both mentally and physically.

Remember, you aren’t doing anyone any favors by exhausting yourself, especially not your baby. Your baby needs you to be well and healthy so you can take care of them. So what you really need to do is let go a little.

Let someone else take upon the responsibility of caring for, feeding and changing your baby, just until you’re back on your own two feet. Young mothers often become possessive when it comes to their babies, but you need to think about the long-term. 

The more you rest now, the better you will be able to care for your baby a few weeks or months down the line. So, as much as you can, avoid entertaining any guests who come to visit. Make it clear what your priorities are. 

Get Proper Nutrition

Another essential way to take care of yourself after giving birth is to get the proper nutrition for optimal recovery.

Throughout your pregnancy, your body goes through a number of changes, physical and hormonal.

Getting proper nutrition is very important for breastfeeding. You need to strengthen yourself before you can do that.

So remember to eat a balanced diet, rich in vitamins and nutrients to keep you going through the first few weeks after delivery.

This will ensure that you can care for your baby properly!

Clear Vitamin infusion IV bags

Vitamin Infusion IV Therapy is a great way for people to get the necessary vitamins and minerals that their bodies need but have no way of getting. Hardly any of us eat a balanced diet that we are supposed to, so our bodies don’t receive the essential nutrients that it needs.

We try to make up for it by trying to eat fruits and vegetables, but they can hardly make up for deficiencies in nutrients levels in our bodies. So we pop multivitamins. But do you know the multivitamins you take by mouth travel through your digestive tract, and only 50% of it ends up getting absorbed into your bloodstream?

In 1970, scientists came up with a better way to give our bodies the much-needed vitamins and minerals. They started directly infusing a liquid mix of vitamins and minerals into the veins, which allowed bodies to take up 90% of the vitamins and minerals.  Vitamin Infusion IV Therapy, was a treatment that promised a multitude of benefits to a lot of people who can’t get any otherwise. Let’s look at the benefits of vitamin infusion IV therapy.

Benefits of Vitamin IV Therapy

  • muscle recovery
  • mental clarity
  • increased immunity
  • increased energy
  • improved sleep
  • hydration
  • enhanced mood
  • enhanced sexual drive
  • clearer skin
  • decreased stress and anxiety

For the treatment to work, you need to do  multiple sessions. It goes without saying, just one session won’t give magical results. But you will start feeling a difference as soon as you go home after a therapy session.

Not only will you feel that your body is lighter, but you will also feel healthier and fulfilled. For better results, consult with your clinicians to see how many sessions you need. 

Vitamin infusion IV therapy is administered by Board Certified Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Physicians, and should be done according to their advice and guidance 

Who Should Take Vitamin Infusion IV Therapy

Healthy People 

Healthy people with no diet restriction may benefit from the Vitamin Infusion therapy. It provides an alternate way of getting necessary vitamins and minerals.

People with Restricted Diets

They may benefit a lot from vitamin infusion therapy either by their physician’s or their own or choice. For example: diabetic people and many other ill individuals are advised to eat only certain foods in certain amounts. So, this doesn’t allow them to take in the necessary quantity of vitamins and minerals.

Then there are people who choose to restrict their diets themselves, such as vegetarians and vegans. These people can make up for the nutrients they are missing out on through vitamin IV therapy.

People with Sicknesses 

For people with sickness, they absorb nutrients less efficiently than healthy people. So, Vitamin Infusion therapy can be a blessing. The blood can easily absorb the essential nutrients which make people with sickness at a lower risk of developing vitamin deficiencies.

However, healthy young people can also opt for Vitamin Infusion therapy if they wish to.If you want to try it out too, consult Manzil Healthcare Services and see what they say! The benefits of vitamin infusion IV therapy speak for themselves.

Mother carrying her child

While breastfeeding is completely natural, a lot of new mothers still stress about it. We added some helpful breastfeeding tips for new mothers to guide on this wonderful journey!

Manzil Healthcare Services is also here to help!  We want to make your time after delivery as comfortable as possible, so we provide services such as nannies and nurses to care for both the mother and baby. Being a mother doesn’t have to be hard. All you need is a little bit of help!

Call us at 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit our website for more information.

Learn To Tell When Your Baby Is Hungry

As a mother, you will have to learn signs that your baby is hungry. This may take a while, but eventually, you’ll know every time that your baby wants milk.

  • You must remain perceptive of certain cues, however. For example, your baby sticking their tongue out, or turning their head around repeatedly, or opening and shutting their mouth are all signs that they are hungry.
  • If you see your baby doing any of these things, offer your breast to them immediately. Your baby will most likely be glad that you understand them and that you are giving them what they want.

By instantly recognizing when your baby is hungry, and by satisfying their hunger, your bond with your baby will also most likely get stronger.

Be Comfortable While Breastfeeding

Another essential breastfeeding tip for new mothers is to be comfortable while breastfeeding.

Although it will be an altogether new sensation and experience for you, so it’s okay if you aren’t entirely comfortable, to begin with. There are things you can do to make your experience more comfortable, though.

  • make sure that you choose a comfortable place to sit and that you are sitting in a relaxed position.
  • If your position is uncomfortable, it’s probable that your body will only start hurting after a while. If you’re uncomfortable, your baby will most likely catch on to this. For example, if you are constantly squirming in your seat, your baby will also be disturbed and will not be able to drink properly. 

The best thing you can do for your baby is to just relax for now and know that with time, you’ll get the hang of it!

A medical practitioner administers IV Vitamin therapy

Once a trend catches on, it spreads like wildfire. Such is also the case with IV vitamin infusion therapy. If you’re thinking of opting for a safe vitamin infusion therapy, then Manzil Health got you covered! Our licensed experts will provide

Today, many people flock to clinics to get the therapy done, not fully understanding what it is or how it will benefit them. A celebrity or two posts about getting regular infusions, and off you go.

Diving into anything without proper prior knowledge isn’t advised. While treatment or therapy might be good to someone else, it just might not be for you. Though IV vitamin infusion therapy is essentially harmless, other treatments, if followed blindly, could end up affecting your health adversely.

If you have also been inclined towards getting IV vitamin infusion therapy done since you found out that Adele does it, we encourage you to read up on it first, and then consult with your clinicians about it. If he/she expresses encouragement, knowing your medical history, then you must definitely try out this miracle treatment that celebrities can’t stop fanning over. 

Even if, despite your clinician’s go-ahead, you’re concerned about the risks involved in IV Vitamin therapy, then let us put your mind at ease.

IV Vitamin Infusion Therapy – Worth the Risk?

Let’s break down what a safe vitamin infusion therapy entails. This therapy involves a lite”mocktail of vitamins’ that include:

  • vitamins A , E, B -12 , C, D and many moret
  • these vitamins transferred directly into your veins so that it doesn’t lose most of its nutrients
  • a safe vitamin infusion therapy is especially crucial and helpful for people who have limited diets
  • people with compromised bodies that cannot absorb the vitamins and minerals as effectively can also benefit 

Of course, not everybody’s body needs all of the vitamins in those amounts. Is that dangerous? Do too many vitamins and minerals in the body pose a threat to our health? The answer is mostly negative therapy. If your clinician gives you the go-ahead, Manzil Health will be happy to serve some vitamin mocktail to you!

A mother and her baby

There’s no better feeling than bringing your little bundle of joy home and introducing them to your friends and family. But as everybody oohs and aahs over the little baby, only you know how much work caring for a newborn baby entails. They don’t weigh much, and they apparently don’t do much besides eating and pooping. What’s more, they can exhaust you like nothing else can.

If you’re a new mother, you might often be overwhelmed by how constantly you need to be there for the baby. While experienced mommies will be brimming with advice on how to best care for your baby, it might be a struggle in the beginning to do even the most basic things, such as putting on a diaper or making your baby burp. 

Here are some tips and pieces of advice for all the new mommies out there. We assure you, you will get the hang of it soon enough, so hang in there. For the time being, care for your baby, bond with them, and ask for help when you need it!

Feeding

This is one of the main parts of caring for a newborn baby, and it is entirely up to the mother whether she wants to breastfeed or to put her baby on formula. Consult with a pediatrician and take their advice on what is best for you and the baby. Some women can’t breastfeed due to medical reasons, while others might choose not to for other reasons. Formula milk is safe and is strictly regulated by the FDA to ensure that it has all the necessary nutrients, so your baby will be fine with either. 

Try not to fix a feeding schedule so soon. Feed your baby on demand – whether it’s six times a day or eight. Newborn babies generally consume 12-16 oz. of milk a day. If you choose to breastfeed, learn how to make your baby deep-latch so they can suckle better, and if you go for formula, make sure to go by the instructions and always prepare a fresh batch for feeding. 

Bathing

Bathing a newborn baby can seem scary! Your baby had their first bath immediately after the delivery, but now that you are home and on your own, how do you go about it? For babies whose umbilical cord is still there, you should only sponge bath. Wet a sponge, and scrub your baby down gently. When the baby is a few weeks older, purchase an infant sink or tub to bathe your child. Clinicians don’t recommend bath chairs as they can tip over.

Needless to say, you need to stay super alert during your baby’s bath. You can’t leave them alone for even a second; you know the dangers involved. Make sure that the water temperature is right and that you have a towel at the ready to dry the baby.

Changing a Diaper

This has to be a new parent’s worst part of the day. Babies go through 8-10 diapers a day, so make sure you have a stock of clean new diapers in the house at all times. Also, keep cotton balls, washcloths, and wipes to clean the baby down there before you put a clean diaper on. Purchase a nappy cream too to prevent diaper rashes. Babies can be uncomfortable and cranky during a diaper change, so the best thing to do is keep them distracted. Sing to them while doing the deed or keep a toy visible to them to calm them down. 

 

Being a new mommy and caring for a newborn baby, especially without any help, can be draining, both physically and mentally. Thus, at Manzil Health, we have trained and experienced nannies, babysitters, and mother-coaching specialists who can come over and help you with the baby chores, as well as teach you some tips and tricks to go about it. If you feel like you can’t do it alone, call us, and we’ll be there to help you out!

Multivitamins against a yellow background

Vitamins and minerals are two groups of nutrients that have been stressed upon extensively by nutritionists. A deficiency in major minerals and vitamins can even lead to several sicknesses, weakness, and a compromised immune system. So, fighting vitamin deficiencies with proper supplements or safe vitamin infusion therapy will put your health on the right track.

Our primary source of vitamins and minerals are, of course, food. Vitamins and minerals are food groups and are just as important as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. They help strengthen our bones, enhance our skin, and build up our immune system.

But why do we have vitamin deficiencies? There could be two reasons.

  • First, our recklessness and absolute disregard for healthy eating. We tend to get addicted to fast food and hardly get any healthy nutrient intake at all.
  • Secondly, even when we do occasionally pick up an apple or avocado, it contains very trace amounts of the vitamins and minerals we need. Though even such little amounts are enough for our bodies, when the food travels through the digestive system, it loses about 50% of its nutritional value. So, there isn’t much to be absorbed by the blood. 

However, we have two ways to make for our vitamin deficiency.

Multivitamins and Supplements

  • This is the mainstream way. Multivitamins are vitamin tablets that you can take orally so you can expand on your body’s reserve of the vitamin. Though it travels through the digestive system too, each tablet has enough to go into the blood.
  • Widely available and consumed through clinician’s recommendations.
  • They are in the form of capsules, dis solvable powder, or liquid syrups. Their popularity is also because of their convenience, availability, and low cost.

IV Vitamin Infusion Therapy

  • Another somewhat newer form of administering necessarya vitamins to a body is an IV vitamin infusion therapy.  IV drip is used to inject a mixture of different vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream.
  • This can either be done at a hospital or at your place, but can only be administered by a medical practitioner.
  • Gained a lot of popularity because it claims to be far more beneficial than oral consumption of vitamins as it enables about 90% of it to reach the blood. Because of the surge in demand, many clinics and hospitals are now offering these therapies.

Whether you opt for multivitamins or IV vitamin therapy, what matters is that you keep your body well supplemented with necessary minerals and vitamins to stay healthy and strong.

If you do want to try out IV vitamin therapy, Manzil Health has many experienced clinicians who can administer the mocktail of vitamins to you!

Woman hugging her baby

Having a baby might be extremely exciting, and you might be overwhelmed with love and affection for the little one, and it is a reason for celebration.

Many new moms experience baby blues for the first few weeks, as their bodies recover, and as their minds get comfortable with all the changes in life. But if the blues are persistent, intense, and prolonged, it is a red light! Postpartum depression is not something to be embarrassed about, and its symptoms can be managed.

With all the newfound emotions and the strong motherly love you feel, there are a lot of responsibilities coming your way too. Your life might be flipping completely, but not in a bad way. While being a mom isn’t easy, it is also very fulfilling and wholesome.

Fear and anxiety about this new phase of your life are normal. Your body still hasn’t recovered from the pregnancy. Your hormones are a mess, and your feelings are all over the place. Even in such happy times, it is normal to feel a bit sad. 

Understanding Postpartum Depression

Lack of awareness about postpartum awareness can be dangerous for the baby and the mother. Many new moms have difficulty coping up with all the added stress and responsibility and pass it off as just a phase. But postpartum depression is a serious infliction that needs to be identified, diagnosed, and treated to ensure the happiness and health of the mother and the baby.

Postpartum depression is a deep depression that sets in soon after a baby’s birth. While it can happen anytime during the first year of giving birth, most moms fall victim to it just 3 weeks after. The depression can be severe and can leave the mom unable to provide the level of care that such a young baby requires. Feelings of sadness, insecurity, and guilt are very common in postpartum moms.

What Causes Postpartum Depression?

There can be multiple causes of postpartum depression, and all of these are legitimate. Giving birth and the period surrounding it are a very emotional experience, and there are so many factors involved.

Hormones: The first and most major reason is hormones. Your body adjusted to accommodate the baby, but now that the baby is out, the hormone levels suddenly drop. This leads to severe mood changes and depression. This is exactly what you previously experienced as pre-menstrual syndrome, only that PMS has far fewer hormones involved.

Lack of Support: New moms already have a lot of stress about their new roles and responsibilities towards a small human being that completely depends on them. But doing everything on your own can become too exhausting, both physically and mentally. Women whose partners and families don’t help out with baby duties often find themselves more vulnerable to falling into depression.

Family History: A family history of depression may also leave you more susceptible to postpartum depression. The baby and the resulting changes that occur in your life may be bigger triggers to you than someone who did not already have a history of depression.

Postpartum depression is normal, understandable, and treatable. If you feel like you might be suffering from it, please open up to loved ones around you. You don’t have to do it all alone. Manzil Health is here for you, too; hire our professional nurses to offer psycho-social support and help you with baby chores, so you don’t feel overwhelmed and have someone to talk to. Reach out; you can do this!

Infusion therapy is often prescribed for those with heart failure

While any one symptom of heart failure shouldn’t be enough to alarm you, having multiple symptoms at once is a cause of concern and requires urgent medical attention.

Here are some symptoms of congestive heart failure that you need to look out for.

1. Shortness of Breath/ Breathlessness

If you find it difficult to breathe or feel as if there is not enough air for you to breathe, you may be suffering from shortness of breath, which is one of the main symptoms of congestive heart failure.

You may experience breathlessness at any time of the day, sometimes even while resting, or right after you wake up.

While breathlessness is sometimes also a symptom of anxiety, if you experience breathlessness for an extended period of time, you should contact a medical professional right away.

2. Feeling Tired/Fatigued All the Time

If you feel tired regularly, even while engaging in the most common everyday tasks, such as doing the laundry, buying groceries, etc., you should get yourself checked immediately.

3. Coughing

Coughing that’s accompanied by pink or white mucus is another sign of congestive heart failure to look out for.

4. Feeling Nauseous

While nausea is a common everyday feeling, if you feel nauseous very often and for very long at a stretch, it can be useful to get checked by a professional. This is especially true if you are also experiencing some of the other symptoms of heart failure.

5. Fast Heart Rate

Excessive palpitations, especially while you are resting, is one of the main symptoms of congestive heart failure.

A fast heart rate combined with difficulty breathing is especially concerning and should be checked by a medical professional urgently.

6. Feeling Confused

If you feel confused very often, where your thoughts appear jumbled, and you feel disoriented, you should get checked up. Sometimes, you may even face memory impairment, where your memories become detached, and you can’t seem to remember even recent events.

 

These were some congestive heart failure symptoms you need to look out for. At Manzil Healthcare Services, we understand that one of the best remedies for congestive heart failure is infusion therapy. We want to make infusion therapy as easy and as convenient for you as we possibly can, which is why we offer at-home infusion therapy so that you heal in an environment surrounded by your loved ones.

Our range of infusion therapies includes hydration therapy, antibiotic therapy, and pain management.

So if you suspect that you are suffering from congestive heart failure, contact us on 800 626 945 or whatsapp us at 00971565489691 or visit our website for more information.

It’s okay to ask someone to help you with your baby, even if you are the mother

If you’ve only recently given birth, you are most likely overwhelmed by all the new feelings, responsibilities, and of course, your newly-discovered maternal instinct!

However, remember to be kind to yourself and embrace this journey every step of the way.

Here are some of new mother tips that will help you along the way:

Take Care Of Yourself First

We get it. You just became a mom, and you’re super excited! You want to do all the things you’ve always read mothers should do.

You want to care for your baby, hold your baby all day and night, and fulfill all your ‘motherly’ responsibilities. Remember, though, that before you can properly take care of your baby, you need to make sure you are in good shape.

Whether you had a normal delivery or gave birth through C-section, your body will still be in a lot of pain. It will be sore and vulnerable, and you may have to take extra care of it the first few weeks after giving birth, at least.

  • make sure you get enough rest
  • eat proper, nutritious meals so that you are able to stay energetic even while your body is still weak
  • while it can be tempting to run towards your crying baby all times of the day, remember to sometimes just sit back and let others help you
  • it won’t make you less of a mother if you hire a nurse or nanny to help you with the baby for the first few weeks after giving birth. If anything, letting someone help you while you focus on taking care of yourself and regaining your strength will only allow you to care better for our baby in due time.

Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself

IV vitamin bags

Health fads come and go, but one that started off as a fad actually ended up staying was IV Vitamin Therapy!

Many celebrities get regular IV vitamin therapy sessions. Touted to be of great benefit for internal health, clearing up the skin, improve the clarity of mind, and many other benefits.

But is it as effective as it is marketed to be? Let’s find out.

What is IV Vitamin Therapy?

  • developed and administered by John Meyers in 1970
  • comprises of a mixture of vitamins that are infused into an individual’s body directly intravenously
  • this led to the treatment being referred to as Myer’s Cocktail casually
  • it completely bypassed the digestive tract compared, and 90% of vitamins are absorbed into the bloodstream
  • when you take multivitamin orally, however, they go through your stomach, and only 50% of the vitamins actually get absorbed into your bloodstream 

What benefits are associated with IV Vitamin Therapy?

  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced mood
  • Mental clarity
  • Improved sleep
  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Increased immunity
  • Muscle recovery
  • Hydration

These benefits cannot be garnered through foods because most natural foods do not have sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals.

This is especially true for people with restricted diets and vegetarians, as there some vitamins that are only present in meat.

Of course, you won’t magically start seeing benefits as soon as you get one session. It is a cumulative process, where the results show up after multiple sessions.

Many give up because of the lack of immediate results, but you have to understand that it takes time with processes like these.

During an IV Vitamin Therapy

  • you are receiving a mixture of liquid vitamins directly into their veins
  • treatments are offered at home, and at clinics, and take hardly an hour
  • after the treatment, your body will absorb most of the vitamins and expel the excessive amount
  • the nutrients that reach your cells help to fortify them and make them stronger against fighting off illnesses
  • when the body is well-supplied with vitamins and minerals, it will also exhibit itself in the way a person’s skin glows, and spike up energy levels to make muscles stronger

Do you want to try out IV Vitamin therapy too? Consult Manzil Healthcare Services and see whether the therapy can benefit you.

A basket of fresh fruit and juices

Growing up, we’ve all heard that vitamins are good for us – at least, that’s what our parents and our textbooks told us. Vitamins for our health are very important because they are considered one of the essential nutrients. 

But today, we wonder, how exactly are vitamins helpful to us? What function do they perform in our bodies? What is the importance of consuming vitamins?

Vitamins – What do They Do For Us?

Though there are many vitamins and minerals and they are all equally important for our health, here, we discuss some of the most basic ones.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is also called retinoid or carotenes. You can get your fill of these vitamins from potatoes, carrots, fish, mangoes, butter, cheese, beef, and milk. Most people are not deficient in Vitamin A as there is an ample amount of it in foods that we consume daily. Vitamin A is essential for good vision, and keeping skin and tissues healthy (which is why it is also used in anti-aging creams). It also assists in bone growth and development.

Vitamin B

Many vitamins fall under Vitamin B. It is a broad category, including vitamin B2, B6, B12, B9, and many more. While the general job of vitamin B is to help convert food into energy, each different type of vitamin B has a set of other jobs to perform as well.

Vitamin C

Ascorbic acid is perhaps the most well-known vitamin to us. Present in oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, spinach, grapefruit, and a variety of other fruits, vitamin C is crucial in strengthening our immune system against diseases. Sufficient levels of vitamin C can also help you fight off cataracts and reduces the risk of many types of cancers, including those of the breast, mouth, and stomach.

Vitamin D

Calciferol is famed because the body can make this with enough sunlight. Unluckily, though, our lifestyles don’t allow us to stay out in the sun enough for our bodies to make enough. This is why this is one vitamin that most people are deficient in.

Vitamin D is essential for healthy teeth and bones, and also to regulate the levels of calcium, so supplements are often necessary.

Vitamin E

Alpha-tocopherol is the official name of vitamin E, and this vitamin is found naturally in vegetables, vegetable oils, leafy greens, and nuts. Research suggests that sufficient levels of vitamin E help fight off Alzheimer’s in old age. Vitamin E also acts as an anti-oxidizing agent, neutralizing harmful cells in the body.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is also known as phylloquinone, menadione, and is found in a lot of foods, including cabbage, eggs, liver, sprouts, and other green vegetables. Vitamin K is responsible for regulating proteins and calcium that enable blood clotting.

If you are deficient in all or most of these vitamins, you can get an IV vitamin infusion therapy on a clinician’s recommendation, where a mixture of all vitamins will be injected into your bloodstream through an IV drip at Manzil Health.

Diabetes can pose numerous health risks. However, diabetes complications can be treated with the right treatment and lifestyle changes. 

Diabetes Complications

Eye complications

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that arises out of complications due to diabetes, which can potentially lead to vision loss and even blindness if left undetected or untreated. Therefore, it is crucial that individuals with diabetes get their eyes regularly tested for early-stage detection of retinopathy. This enables monitoring and treatment to take place, which can help in preserving vision from excessive deterioration. Depending on whether an individual has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, different modalities of eye examinations are recommended:

  • Type 1 diabetes: It is recommended that individuals with Type 1 diabetes undergo regular eye exams starting five years after diagnosis, and these exams can be conducted by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Eye exams are usually not mandatorily required before 10 years of age, however, individuals who have glasses or contacts or experience difficulties with their vision might need to be examined at an age sooner than 10 if required.
  • Type 2 diabetes: For individuals with Type 2 diabetes, it is recommended that they take an eye exam upon diagnosis itself. This exam can be administered by an optometrist/ophthalmologist. Having an eye exam may reveal such complications and help your treating physician to determine if any treatment is needed.

It is usually recommended that based on the results of the initial eye exam, the individual undergoes an eye examination every one to two years after the first one.

One of the most significant ways to keep your eyes healthy as an individual with diabetes is to keep one’s blood pressure below 130/80 mmHg (in adults). Blood pressure can be kept within a healthy range by making certain healthy lifestyle changes like reducing salt intake, exercising, and eating more fruits and vegetables.

Kidney complications

The kidneys play a very important role in the body by filtering the blood, getting rid of toxic waste products in the body and removing excess salt and water as well. Diabetic nephropathy is a condition that affects the functioning of the kidneys of an individual with diabetes and if left undetected or untreated, it can lead to chronic kidney disease and kidney failure, subsequently.

Therefore, regular screenings for kidney function are essential in diabetic patients. One prominent sign of kidney dysfunction is protein in the urine, which normally does not leak out if the kidneys are working well, and so, your health care practitioner can order a urine test to measure the level of protein in the urine.

The recommendations for individuals with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes include:

  • It is advised that individuals with Type 1 diabetes begin testing for kidney function about five years after diagnosis.
  • In individuals with Type 2 diabetes, it is recommended that testing for kidney function can begin upon diagnosis.

Managing your lipid and blood sugar levels, as well as one’s blood pressure can help in reducing one’s risk of developing and managing diabetes complications.

Owing to the rapid advancements in health, medicine, and technology, managing diabetes complications has become more efficient for a better quality of life.

The cornerstone to the management of any disease is awareness, and education about the various complications that can arise out of diabetes is imperative to the management of the disease.

These complications can include the following:

Cardiovascular Complications

Studies have shown that individuals with diabetes are more predisposed to cardiovascular disease as compared to individuals without diabetes, which leads to a higher risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke. 

It has been demonstrated that management of one’s blood sugar levels plays an integral role in reducing this risk factor, for individuals suffering from both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Also, to prevent further damage to the eyes, kidneys, and nerves as well.

A few ways to reduce manage this complication can include:

Management of cholesterol levels

  • It is often observed that individuals with diabetes usually need to take medications to lower these elevated levels, especially if risk factors for cardiovascular disease (being over 40 years of age, high blood pressure, family history, or obesity, among others) exist.
  • Please consult your local healthcare provider for more indications about the required medications as per your individual health assessment.

Keep blood pressure within healthy ranges

  • key to reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease
  • Making dietary changes, such as reducing salt and alcohol intake, consuming more fiber, fruits and vegetables and engaging in regular exercise help in maintaining one’s blood pressure levels.

Quit smoking

  • Studies have shown that cigarette smoking can double a person’s risk of developing coronary heart disease
  • Has the power to cut the risk of developing coronary heart disease in half after just one year of quitting.
  • Medications that can aid quitting smoking include lozenges, nasal spray, and skin patches. Behavioral changes that can aid quitting include in-person support as well as skills training.

Foot Complications

Another way to manage diabetes complication is to take care of your foot complications.

Diabetes can decrease blood flow to the feet and the nerves, which can cause nerve damage to the nerves that carry sensation, a condition called diabetic neuropathy.

Losing sensation in the feet can lead to further complications such as foot ulcers.

In order to prevent such complications from arising or worsening, engaging in regular checks of one’s feet as a diabetic individual is of key importance:

Self-checks

  • It is crucial to engage in regular self-checks of one’s feet, and this can be done by careful examination of all parts of the feet including broken skin, blisters, any areas of increased tenderness or warmth, and ulcers.
  • A mirror can be used for this purpose and it can be made part of one’s daily grooming and dressing routine.

Clinical examinations

  • During routine medical visits, the practitioner can also check for any signs of changes to the feet such as thin skin, skin breaks, cold feet or symptoms of an athlete’s foot.
  • In individuals with Type 1 diabetes, it is recommended that annual foot exams begin 5 years after diagnosis.
  • In individuals with Type 2 diabetes, it is advised that these annual foot exams begin at the time of diagnosis.

We at Manzil recognize the importance of effective diabetes management through innovative technological solutions. Read more about TypeCare! A cutting edge product with real-time monitoring of blood sugar levels via a digital interface.

Medical professional giving a finger sugar test

Confused about the excess information about diabetes? In this blog, we will break down everything related to its types, symptoms and prevention.

Diabetes is a disorder that occurs when blood glucose (sugar) levels in the body remain high for an extended amount of time.

Glucose is an essential source of energy for the body and comes from the food we eat. Insulin, produced by the pancreas, helps metabolize glucose to be used as a form of energy to be used by the cells.

However, when this glucose is not metabolized well due to lack of insulin or when the cells of the body stop responding to insulin, it leads to diabetes.

How Will I know If I have Diabetes?

These are some common signs and symptoms to look out for:

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urge to urinate
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Increased weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Sores that do not heal for prolonged periods of time
  • Blurred vision
  • Tingling sensations/ numbness in hands and feet

Types of Diabetes

Type 1 

  • autoimmune disease
  • caused when the body does not produce insulin
  • most commonly observed in children and young adults, as well as in individuals with a family history of Type 1 diabetes

Type 2 

  • occurs when the body’s cells stop using insulin 
  • can be developed at any age, and is usually observed in individuals who are middle aged and above
  • individuals at risk :
  1. Having high blood pressure
  2. Being overweight or obese
  3. Being age 45 and above
  4. Sedentary lifestyle
  5. Having a family history of diabetes
  6. Having a history of heart disease or stroke
  7. Having depression
  8. Having Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  9. Smoking

Gestational Diabetes

  • occurs only during pregnancy and usually goes away after the baby is born. However, having gestational diabetes increases one’s chances of developing diabetes later on in life.

Prevention

Get moving!

  • Research has demonstrated that maintaining an active lifestyle (exercising for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week) is key to preventing lifestyle diseases like diabetes, since exercise helps in lowering insulin levels in the blood.

Follow a healthy eating plan

  • An eating plan low in refined carbohydrates and sugary foods
  • studies have shown that individuals who consume the highest levels of fast-digesting carbohydrates are at a 40% higher risk of developing diabetes, since the body breaks down foods high in refined carbs into small sugar molecules.

Cut down on sugary drinks and substitute them with water

  • Studies have shown that drinks such as sodas and juices contribute to an increased risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, therefore it is advised to substitute such drinks with water instead. In fact, water has shown to improve insulin response and better blood sugar control.

Reduce weight (if obese or overweight)

  • Excessive weight around the midsection contributes towards insulin resistance and inflammation in the body, which increases the risk of developing diabetes. Therefore, reducing a small amount of weight also helps reduce the risk factor for diabetes.

As the magnitude of diabetes and its related problems is increasing worldwide, the importance of offering innovative solutions for diabetes management has also immensely increased.

It is often that the healing continues after patients leave the hospitals.  In fact, many of the patients stay much longer than expected or necessary as they want to avoid not-so-comfortable after surgery or hospitalization. Whereas the challenge is to get people out of hospitals as quickly as possible and make sure they don’t need to go back for same reasons.

According to Dr. Sarper, going forward hospitals would focus their services to mainly highly specialized care like cardiovascular surgery, intensive care and specialized surgery. There are various services that could move to home including primary care. And most importantly ICU beds can be freed for more critical cases by having stable patients care at home.

The home healthcare services make it possible for patients to be on ventilators and receive medical Infusions like IV antibiotics in the comfort of their homes, with their family around. Day care chemotherapy in hospitals has shifted to administering   some form of chemotherapies at the patient’s homes.

Besides, the cases of medical errors in hospitals are critical problem in healthcare delivery, leaving a sense of discomfort and fear among patients and caretakers. And not to mention, the cost of health care has been increasing due to the growing incidence of NCDs, technological advancements and limited availability of specialized care. All these factors are collectively leading more and more patients to look for medical facilities with their homes and to complement their needs we have many home healthcare focused medial facilities like Manzil Healthcare Services.

Manzil Healthcare Services is a technology driven home healthcare and disease management company that provides skilled home healthcare using tele monitoring and wellness platforms. Manzil Healthcare is in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Ras Al Khaimah, with a team of professionals, offering a broad range of dedicated healthcare services.

The healthcare industry in the region is undergoing a massive transformation in terms of technology and advanced medical procedures. But what has really been a significant change in the industry is the growth and demand for home healthcare services. There are more and more people who seek home healthcare services for various reasons. The most noteworthy reason being that patients are now getting the same level of care and quality nursing at home as they would receive in any reputed hospitals or medical centers.

If you were to ask any patient – whether they want to spend the extra time in the hospital, we know the answer would be “not if they must”. Today people prefer to receive medical treatment in the comfort of their homes. Of all the reasons, here are the most commons ones: the emotional comfort of getting quality treatment in a familiar and positive environment, expensive emergency room and inpatient hospital care and, fear of medical errors and hospital-acquired infections. They want the comfort of their own surroundings, and advancing technology is allowing them to take the advantage of safer care at the home.

Healthcare futurist Dr. Sarper Tanli, Group CEO Manzil Healthcare services, elaborates how technology advancements in healthcare are making it possible to continue the treatment of most of the patient’s at home while only acute and complex cases are being treated at the hospitals. He says that the hospital-like care and services will be in the comfort of homes in the future.

According to Dr. Sarper, the technology and expertise in skilled homecare are making home healthcare work. Use of technology is no longer restricted or confined to hospitals. Laboratory and diagnostic tests like blood tests and urine tests and many more can now be taken in the comfort of our homes. Medical equipment that is needed for the patients that can be placed at home are easily available. Today’s technology provides more accuracy and this leads to better treatment with minimal or negligible errors.

 

This shift in health care trend and the change in the behavior, both from the patient and medical providers, is mainly driven by the evolution of technology. It is remarkable that home healthcare services can also be tailored to chronic conditions such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes etc. Thanks to the advanced technological inventions, it is possible to manage the high-risk patients by providing daily remote monitoring and timely intervention as the patient’s condition warrants.

Breastfeeding provides babies and young infants with all the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. Whether it is a new mother or a seasoned parent, breastfeeding often comes with its fair share of concerns, one of which is “is there a risk of developing breast cancer while breastfeeding?”

It is possible to develop breast cancer while breastfeeding a baby, but it is a rare possibility. It is reported that only 3% of women develop breast cancer while they are breastfeeding. The months of pregnancy and breastfeeding decrease the number of menstrual cycles that a woman has in her lifetime, thus reducing her life time exposure to the hormone oestrogen, which can promote breast cancer cell growth. So this reduction is thought to REDUCE the risk of developing breast cancer.

It is quite normal for breastfeeding women to feel lumps in their breast and are rarely as a result of breast cancer. Some of the most common conditions other than breast cancer that can cause a lump in the breast while breastfeeding are –

  1. Mastitis – An infection of the breast tissue caused by bacteria or a blocked milk duct
  2. Abscess – A rare but dangerous complication of untreated mastitis.
  3. Fibroadenomas – These are noncancerous tumors that can develop in the breast.
  4. Cysts – Known as galactoceles, these small lumps contain milk and often disappear once lactation is complete.

With mastitis or an abscess there is localized pain and redness and the woman feels unwell with fever.

Although the appearance of lumps during breastfeeding is common and not a big concern, women should immediately consult their doctor if a breast lump does not go away, continues to grow, is fixed and hard to the touch or causes dimpled skin.

Early detection of breast cancer increases the chances for successful treatment and it can also lead to less aggressive treatments and improved outcomes. A mammogram or an ultrasound provides images of the lump and help your doctor determine if the mass looks suspicious. This may also be followed with a biopsy, which involves removing a small sample from the lump to test for cancer.

If a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer while lactating, in most cases, the doctor will recommend she stops breastfeeding because many breast cancer treatments can affect a woman’s milk supply or negatively impact the baby. The doctor will help to determine which treatment is best for an individual with breast cancer, as this can vary from person to person.

The doctor will also help patients decide which treatments are best as per the pregnancy stage and condition. The possible treatments include:

Surgery: Surgery may be necessary to remove a lump or cancerous growth. In some cases, this can involve a mastectomy (removal of the breast) or a double mastectomy (removal of both breasts). The extent of the surgery will determine whether or not the individual can continue breastfeeding.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses strong medications to destroy cancer cells within the body. Women who are having chemotherapy will need to stop breastfeeding.

Radiation: Some women undergoing radiation treatment may be able to continue breastfeeding, depending on the specific type of therapy. A doctor will be able to explain the risks to allow the individual to make an informed decision.

The diagnosis of breast cancer is devastating and particularly stressful for lactating mother and her breastfeeding infant. She requires the highest level of support and attention – both emotional and physical, ideally from a trained caretaker or nurse who can extend the best of care and support for both mother and the child.

Manzil Healthcare Services, the leading provider of medical services at home in the UAE, offers professional home care services, focusing on providing mothers the essential care required during the period that they need it the most. Manzil Healthcare is the first stand-alone home health organization that is accredited by Joint Commission International.

Manzil Health Team in Wear It Pink Day

Manzil Healthcare Services observed “Wear it Pink Day” on Thursday the 18th of October 2018 across all in centers in the GCC as part of its effort to raise awareness about Breast Cancer and to stress the importance of prevention through early detection.

The employees of Manzil Healthcare across all its centers showed up to work on 18th October in Pink attire to pledge their support for the breast cancer awareness campaign. They also participated in various programs including Breast Cancer Awareness talk and Breast Self-examination. All the centers of Manzil Healthcare Services were decorated in pink and a signature campaign was also organized where people could take a pledge to fight Breast Cancer.

Speaking about the campaign, Dr. Sarper Tanli, Group CEO of Manzil Healthcare said: “This small gesture from Manzil Helathcare to Wear Pink is aimed at tackling a serious problem of Breast Cancer that women around the world are at high risk. We are committed to raising awareness in the honour of all the survivors and we are dedicated to educate and encourage women that early detection of Breast Cancer can save lives.

In addition to observing the global “Wear it Pink” Campaign, Manzil Healthcare also launched the #EachOneScreenOne campaign encouraging every woman to get a screening for Breast Cancer and also get one more woman along for the screening. The campaign also included the screening of other chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cardiac diseases as a step towards preventive care.

Dr. Sarper Tanli further added: “Early detection is the best protection against breast cancer and we want to emphasize this through our #EachOneScreenOne campaign. We wanted every woman to get screened for Breast Cancer and encourage at least one other women from family or friends to get screened. Because screening helps detect potential hazards where there are no signs or symptoms of the disease and also helps reduce any possible risk of breast cancer.”

Breast Cancer is an appalling disease that continues to grip millions of women around the world. In a global effort to raise awareness about the disease and importance of early detection, October is observed as Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a worldwide annual campaign to highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, education, and research.
