Free weeklong ENT Consultancy camp for seasonal ENT symptoms

The arrival of winter means colder weather, greenery and inevitably seasonal allergies. The fluctuation of temperatures during the transition of winter season means the overlap of colds and allergies. Fluctuation in temperature makes people more prone to the risk of allergy, cold and respiratory ailments, which, if not treated on time can cause severe respiratory diseases. While some of the symptoms of allergies and colds are similar, these are two very different health conditions. Knowing the difference can help you obtain the right treatment so you’ll be on your way to feeling better sooner rather than later. Any allergy or cold symptoms that don’t get better with treatment should be looked at by your doctor to rule out any possible infections.

As part of their social responsibility, Department of ENT-Orange City Hospital & Research Institute will be conducting a free weeklong consultancy camp for patients with complaints of Sneezing over and over again, especially after you wake up in the morning with running nose and tickle in throat or coughing caused by postnasal drip or even watery itchy eyes and itchy ears, nose, and throat.

Dr. Naziya Khan, ENT Specialist-OCHRI will provide her expertise in a week long Free Camp in OCHRI ENT division. The camp is scheduled from 28th November 2016 to 3rd December 2016 between 12-3pm in OCHRI OPD.

On this occasion Dr. Naziya Khan informed that “Typically, since colds and allergies share similar symptoms and treatments. It is hard to spot the difference. Unlike allergies, the common cold is caused by a virus; while allergy symptoms are a result of immune system responses to allergens like pollen, dust, or even pet dander.” While cold and allergy symptoms may overlap, they should be treated accordingly based on your diagnosis. Untreated allergies can lead to chronic illness. She further added.

Dr.Deepak Dongre, Smt.Priya Sashi, Smt.Kumari Shaji & Shri.Anil Dhakate are working hard for the success of this novel social undertaking. For appointments and registration one may contact OCHRI OPD Receptionist in 0712-6634899 during working hours.

OCHRI organizes Yagna during NAMAN 2016


Naman- The annual Pooja & Yagna ritual done to pray for good health of all was recently conducted to commemorate 20th Foundation Day celebrations of Orange City Hospital & Research Institute with Shri.Udaybhaskar Nair as Yajman. Dr.Usha Nair, Dr.Darshan Rewanwar and Shri.Simha Chalam led team of Naman Organizing committee. Sri Vardarajan Iyer assisted by Sri Jayaganesh Iyer conducted the Yagna rituals.

On this occasion Shri.Udaybhaskar Nair stated that Havan has a purifying effect on both the devotee who performs this ritual as well as one’s environment. Through the chanting of mantras and offerings into the fire, one’s chakras are re-energised, creating a revitalised and rejuvenating effect for both the body and mind.

Dr.Usha Nair mentioned that the agnihotra (sacred fire) has been a very important part of all Vedic ceremonies since the beginning of time. The act of putting ghee, fire-wood, food and samagree into a specially lit fire represents the sacrifice of valuable material resources essential for human survival and contentment such as food and fuel.

Dr.Anup Marar added that the composition of samagree was scientifically formulated by sages in pre-historic India to confer disinfectant and sterilising properties to the vapours produced by the fire. Effectively, it is an ancient – and organic – method of purification of the environment by fumigation. The heated air produced by the fire spreads to all places in the home or building where it is performed and so purifies the air by destroying germs as well as producing a pleasant fragrance.

Dr.Darshan Rewanwar conveyed that light from the flame of the fire is a symbol of knowledge replacing ignorance (darkness). Enlightenment of the mind is enhanced by the act of chanting mantras whilst the fire is fed.

Prominently present on this spiritual event were Dr.Bindu Menon, Dr.Madhuri Likhitkar, Shri.Roy Thomas, Shri.Simha Chalam, Smt.Priya Sasi, Shri.Dayaram Nimbarte, Shri.Ramesh Pande, Smt.Durga Joshi, Shri.Naresh Tiwari, Shri.Pravin Kelkar, Shri.Avinash Ganar and Shri.Ravindra Dhande.
