How will the Covid end?

    - The latest report says that 57% of people living in the Mumbai slums are affected.More than 50% of people affected are youngsters below the age of 40. There is a spike in the total number of people affected each day. All these trends only goes on to show that Covid is nowhere close to going away. It only shows that it is spreading by the day. In such a scenario, let me give you my perspective about how I think the Covid is going to end. World over, very few countries have been able to control the virus with lockdown…

    Covid 19: Palpable Fear!

    - Palpable fear is a term most of us would have read, and heard, but never experienced; we are all experiencing it now in the air. As all of you are aware, more and more cases are being reported, the numbers going up by the hour, causing more and more fear and panic! No one is looking at the fact that India has a very low death rate compared to the world, and that is due to our fantastic immunity. Our immunity is good enough to take care of 98% of the Covid affected people.It is only the 2 % that…

    What to do if you think you have covid?

    - Hello, I'm Dr Manoj Kuriakose, & I'm back. But this time, I'm back with some good news for you. The good news is that 80% of the people who are affected by corona are asymptomatic or with very mild symptoms. This means that you might get corona, but you may not even realise that you've got it & it will just go away. Symptomatic or severe cases are about 15% and they come with symptoms of cold, cough, fever, body pains and may be some loss of smell, taste and breathlessness.  Here, let me warn you about breathlessness. There are…

    Opinion: Covid Testing

    - As a practicing doctor and someone who is dealing and counselling a lot of covid positive cases, I have a few observations. According to the WHO report, COVID-19 data suggests that 80% of infections are mild or asymptomatic, 15% are severe infections requiring oxygen and 5% are critical infections, requiring ventilation. I must agree, that I am only treating the 80% who are mild or asymptomatic and very few who are in the 15%. My question is, do we focus on the 80-95% of the people who will anyways recover without medication or on the 5% whose life is at…

    Village vapsi

    - We dont trust the air we breathe anymore We have been declared as the 4th country in the world with the maximum Covid cases, and we are still climbing. This to me looks like a race to the top, which we are fully capable of reaching. Yes, fear is all around; we have taken for granted the very air we breathed around us all our lives which now unfortunately cannot be trusted anymore. We are covering our faces with masks, using sanitisers, and not going out, primarily because there could be Covid infection in the air. What do we do…

    COVID 19: Fear Not!

    - Fear is surely creeping into all of us. We stand as the 5th country with the highest number of Covid cases in the world, and we are climbing that ladder. It is natural for fear to grip us at such times, but as long as we don’t let it turn into panic, we are safe. The fact is, though we are climbing steadily in terms of the number of positive cases, the people dying of Covid are only 3%, which means, about 3 out of 100 succumb to the disease; these 3% are people above the age of 65 and,…

    Message on COVID-19 from Dr.Manoj

    - Hello! Hope you are all keeping safe. The Covid is exploding . Our country stood in the 9th position, in terms of the highest number of cases. Within 24 hours, it has jumped to the 7th position. That's the rapid speed at which the Covid is spreading. What we need to keep in mind is that an advanced country like the USA, with comparatively much less population than India, could not control it, and they've had over more than one lakh deaths. As a culture in India, we never believed in social distancing, despite the threat of the Corona, don’t…

    Connect!

    - I had a close friend who came home to see me , he continued to wear his mask as he spoke. After a few minutes I became very uncomfortable and I  just couldn't continue my conversation with him something was missing .I just could not connect with my long time very dear friend.Then I requested him to take off his mask and then I felt normal conversing with him.. I CONNECTED WITH HIM. Those who have been coming to me for treatment for the last 30 years can relate to what I mean because all my life my interaction with…

    Covid Resolutions!

    - So has enough time passed in lockdown for us to make some resolutions, would you agree? Let’s ask ourselves a few questions to understand where we stand today, or how our thought process has changed. For yourself -Were you joyful before, or after lockdown has started? If your answer is “before” then may God help you get back to the precovid at the earliest! -If you are joyful now, then what has this changed in you, have you given it a thought? -Is it your work from home? -Is it the time spent with family? -Is it the limited financial…

    Alcohol – Hic! The right way to consume it!

    - We drink alcohol for the high it gives us and the inhibitions it takes away, making us feel happy and free. Most of us believe that the more we drink, the high we get is still more, isn’t it? In this process, we end up competing and drinking to fill our stomachs, feeling sick & hung over the next morning. You need to understand how alcohol travels in your body. When you drink alcohol, it begins to get absorbed into our bloodstream, from our mouth, then the stomach and mostly from the intestines. Once it enters the bloodstream, it goes…

    Overcome lockdown Uncertainty!

    - It is the uncertainty, that's making the lockdown so tough for most of us to handle. Even a borderline intelligent person will calm down if he knows when the lockdown will stop but the uncertainty surrounding it will make even the most intelligent and evolved person go crazy. Unfortunately, not even the best intelligence agencies in the world know when this will end. Everyone, including the world leaders and the most powerful people on this earth, are only hoping and praying that this will end soon. Uncertainty is bound to be around till the end of this whole drama. How…

    Note from Dr.Manoj

    - With these untimely rains in Hyderabad, and a fickle weather, there are more chances that you may end up with a cold, cough, and a fever, which is more likely to be viral. Right now every cold cough and fever will be screened more for covid than a viral fever. If you have been a responsible citizen, been following social distancing, and you do not have a history of travel, or been in touch with anyone who has travelled in the past 21 days, the chances are, that it is a simple viral. All you need to do is take…

    Redefining Emergency Medicine

    - Can you imagine the lakhs that all the pharmacies, the labs, the hospitals are losing during this lockdown? Do you realise that the loss is because you haven't been going for your regular check-ups to the hospitals, you haven't been going for your regular investigations to the laboratory, or may be some of you haven't been buying the regular medicines as there are no new prescriptions being written; there are no investigations being written, there are no admissions that are happening. How is it possible that a hospital which would usually perform roughly about a hundred ultrasounds a day, around…

    My take on the 9 minutes

    - In my 30 years of practice as a Doctor, I have seen that whenever I treat a patient, it was always my ‘INTENT’ to heal that has helped the patient the most. I have always transferred healing energy into all my patients with my most sincere intent to help. I have also transferred energies through my Homeopathic medication and have always seen the best results! Have you ever experienced the good vibrations or energy when you visit a holy place like a temple, mosque, church, or a gurudwara. What you feel is the positive energy around that place because each…

    Let me sow some seeds in your brain during this lockdown

    - Have we ruined the health of our children by preconditioning them?The moment our child begins to understand, we begin to condition the child’s mind about what is right and what is wrong to be healthy, don’t we?Do not go to anyone with cold, cough, or a fever ,you will get it!Do not drink tap water, you will get a stomach upset!Do not eat ice cream, you will get throat pain!Do not eat chocolate, you will cough!Do not get wet in the rain, you will get a fever!Do not eat so and so food, its not good for you!Don’t stay hungry,…

    Survival of the Fittest

    - Yes, it is heading right there. The way the virus is spreading, it surely looks like it is going to affect a lot of people. My question to you is, so what? Statistics have proven that it is fatal only to the old and to those who have an underlying health condition. They have a reason to be worried. Why are the 90% of the rest of the population freaking out? Thousands of them got it and they have recovered. Why don’t you look at those statistics too. What you should be doing is SHIELDING the old and the sick.…

    Protect Yourself with a Protective Shield around You

    - I am sure you are doing your best to keep the corona virus away. Is there anything more you can do about it? If you can please do it from this moment. Once you do your best and secure your surroundings, you begin to feel safe, and you give out positive energy around you. Then, you get a whatsapp forward about how many more people are effected, how many have died, how the virus is spreading like wild fire, how the most advanced nation also could not do anything, how it has began to spread through air,mosquitoes,etc etc. Have you…

    Corona: life after 21 days lockdown

    - Our generation would have never experienced unknown fear like this! It’s straight out of a Robin Cook novel or a blockbuster movie! Fear that has affected EVERYONE. Fear that has affected all of humanity not discriminating the rich, poor, the Christians, the Hindus, the Sikhs or the Muslims. There is a slump in the economy, there is a global shut down, the global economy will crash and the rich will definitely suffer. There will be better distribution of wealth in this world . The poor will suffer too, as they don’t know where their next meal will come from.The rich…

    Accepting Ageing

    - When we are younger, in school and the clothes that our parents pick out for us, we just can’t wait to grow up. We can’t wait to go to college in fancy clothes, having fun with friends and making money. But, when we finally get there and continue moving ahead following the linear motion of time, we suddenly want to pause - we think we are inching closer to the grave. In that spirit, here’s a fun fact - Did you know that life expectancy in India, as of 2019, is 69 years of age? It means, an average Indian…

    ‘My child has no appetite!’- Every Mother’s woe!

    - In my previous write up I have mentioned how the size of the stomach is the size of the fist, and the importance of eating a fistful. Please go and read that if you haven’t before you begin this one - "Food: How much to eat & What to eat!" “Doctor, my son has absolutely no appetite.I spend hours trying to feed him.The only way he eats, is by engaging him with some toy or tv, or even taking him out for a drive!” Please read the about sentence again,does it resonate somewhere? First of all you are forcing the…

    Sleep:Redefining the Concept of Sleeping!

    - “Yawn! Oh I just didn’t sleep well!“ How many mornings do you say this to yourself and your family? Most of the things you plan to do that day, the first thought that comes to the mind is that you didn’t sleep well the previous night, so should you continue the planned task today or tomorrow.?If you analyse the whole scenario, your body is not complaining, but its your mind that is complaining! Sleep does two things to your body; it gives rest to the physical body, and it shuts down all the thoughts in your brain and rests it…

    Corona virus – Preventive

    -   Homeopathic immune boosters which are available at the clinic will improve your immunity, these are more than enough as a preventive . But the biggest threat here is the FEAR factor. When humans face a threat, first the body freezes, then it decides to 'fight or flight'. The freeze zone is the moment our brain is deciding, and it's at this weakest moment our immunity is compromised, and we catch infections! No point in spreading forwards which are causing more panic and fear.Dont let your body freeze in fear. Just be confident about your immune system which has protected…

    Fear Factor: The Fear of Corona Virus!

    - Every day in India alone 3000 people die due to lack of food, 3000 people die of air pollution, 3000 people die of smoking, 500 people die of alcohol ,400 people die due to road accidents….…the list is endless. Are we panic-stricken because of these numbers? Perhaps no. Then, why is it that the corona-virus is causing so much hue and cry? It spreads like crazy through cough, sneeze, touch, shaking hands, the only thing that can be done is prevention. The symptoms of catching the corona virus are like any viral fever — cold, cough, fever, body pains, headaches…
