Turmeric (Haldi) - 4 Reasons Why It Is An Important Herb!

Turmeric (Haldi) - 4 Reasons Why It Is An Important Herb!

Turmeric is widely used in cooking spicy dishes all over the world. But there are several pieces of research, which prove the efficacy of turmeric or haldi in warding off ailments like dementia and reduce the risk of cancer to a great extent. Turmeric has the highest usage in countries like India and Sri Lanka followed by other parts of the planet.

As per the results of the World Alzheimer’s Report, it is found that only about 3.6 percent of South Asians aged above 60 suffer from dementia which is quite lower than 6.4 percent of people in Australia as well as 7.2 percent of people in Western Europe. In similar lines, the World Health Organisation says that the rate of cancer patients is lower in India in stark comparison to the higher rates of more developed countries. If an individual is looking for the benefits of turmeric, he would come across several reasons to add more turmeric to foods on a daily basis.

  1. Reduces the risk of cardiac problems: Curcumin present in turmeric can have a positive effect on people suffering from high cholesterol. Animal studies opine that it can considerably lower down cholesterol levels as well as prevent building up off LDL or bad cholesterol. Thus, it is a viable means of preventing plaque build-up which in turn may block the arteries and lead to strokes and cardiac arrests.
  2. Fights inflammatory diseases: The anti-inflammatory qualities of turmeric can work as a potential anti-inflammatory medication without causing any unwanted side effects. It is also helpful in treating minor nicks and cuts and it can be administered with warm milk to heal any kind of inflammatory disease inside the body. There has been a study which showed turmeric to be useful in treating pain and disability stemming from osteoarthritis. Turmeric is also found helpful in combatting seasonal flu and viral infections.
  3. Helps in digestion and supports weight loss: Turmeric stimulates the gall bladder which in turn produces bile. As bile helps in digestion of fat, health experts are of opinion that turmeric improves overall digestion and may also aid in controlling weight. It is useful in treating bloating and excessive gas formation caused by improper digestion.
  4. Helps in maintaining blood sugar levels: Turmeric plays a crucial role in improving glucose control as well as controlling activities of insulin. It has the potential to bring about a drop in blood sugar levels. So, an individual with high blood sugar should add optimum amounts of turmeric in diet along with diabetes medication to help in reducing the blood sugar levels. But it is important to monitor the sugar levels continually to avoid conditions like hypoglycemia which is characterised by sugar levels dropping lower than required.

In addition to all these, there is a clear indication that turmeric helps in cancer prevention, reducing breast cancer, skin, and pancreatic problems along with multiple myelomas and juvenile leukemia.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If 1 hour glucose (after OGTT 75 g) is 164 mg then it is not considered as Gestational diabetes. If it crosses 180 mg, then only GDM is diagnosed. It is better to take a healthy diet. Do not take sweets, but consume good deal of healthy foods and fruits. Thank.

Causes of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

For pregnancy to occur, every part of the complex human reproduction process has to take place just right. The steps in this process are as follows:

• One of the two ovaries releases a mature egg.

• The egg is picked up by the fallopian tube.

• Sperm swim up the cervix, through the uterus and into the fallopian tube to reach the egg for fertilization.

• The fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus.
• The fertilized egg implants and grows in the uterus.

Garlic for Sexual Health and  Stamina

Garlic can do wonders to your libido. Garlic has always been seen as a miracle herb that heals body organs. It normalizes the blood flow especially towards the penis. Many ancient civilizations have used garlic to increase and heal the sexuality. I have personally tried garlic and can vouch for its powers. It is not only good for vitality and little jhony it is also great for your general health.

How to Use:

You can eat three to four garlic cloves daily for a if you are having difficulty getting an erection. You can cut that down to three times a week after a month. that is if you start feeling better down there. you can also use grated garlic in your meat to get the desired result but raw garlic cloves work much better. Your breath will be awful but I am sure your partner won’t complain after your performance in bed.

Increasing the effectiveness:

In order to increase the effectiveness of the treatment you should cut down on the trans-fat. This will not only help you get in better shape but also will help your boom, boom to go zoom zoom.

Isabgol Health Benefits

Isabgol health benefits

Here are some health benefits that this super food has to offer.
 
Relives constipation

The hygroscopic nature of the soluble fiber in isabgol helps in absorbing moisture and swelling up to form soft stools. The insoluble fiber in isabgol helps by providing enough roughage to the wastes and takes it towards the intestine. Together they make the elimination of the waste easy and painless.

How to consume – in case of constipation, isabgol is mostly consumed with warm milk. Milk is high in residue and thus together with isabgol acts as a wonderful remedy to relieve constipation effectively.
If you have severe constipation, add 2 tsp isabgol in a bowl with 1/ tsp sugar, and add warm milk to it, it will thicken and become sticky, you need to intake this at bedtime. In cases where constipation is not very severe or where stools are passed regularly but are hard, mix 1 tsp isabgol in warm milk.

Helps in diarrhoea

Yes it is hard to believe that isabgol can help in both extreme conditions of digestive system. This effect is due to the soluble fiber in isabgol. The soluble fiber absorbs the water in intestine and swells up to bind the loose stools.

How to consume – add 2 tsp isabgol to 3 tsp curd, mix well and eat it twice a day after eating food. The probiotics in the curd helps in healing and recovering from stomach infections.

 
Helps in weight loss

Fighting hunger is a big challenge while on a weight loss diet. Isabgol helps in reaching satiety. It makes you feel full. And also helps in cleaning the gut. While on weight loss, the body seems to be producing a lot of waste products due to the fat burning process. The sudden increase in intake of raw foods may be a little heavy on digestion and may cause constipation and flatulence. It is important to clear this waste from the body to remain healthy and feel fit. Taking isabgol every day will help in weight loss.

How to consume – isabgol can be consumed with a glass of warm water and lemon early in the morning or just before your main meals. This will help you reaching satiety (the feeling of fullness) early, and naturally reduce your food intake.

Boosts digestion

If you suffer from indigestion on a regular basis and are experiencing on and off episodes of constipation and diarrhoea, isabgol is your magic wand. Isabgol helps in regularizing the bowel movement and increasing the peristalsis of waste (movement of food towards intestine).

How to consume – you can have 1 tsp of isabgol with a glass of buttermilk after your lunch. In severe cases you can have this after lunch and dinner too.

Controls cholesterol levels in blood

The soluble fiber in isabgol helps in reducing cholesterol from blood. It forms a gel with the excess cholesterol and fat in the gut and eliminates it with the wastes in the body. Not only does isabgol eliminate the excess fat, but it also helps by reducing the absorption of fat by the intestinal walls.

How to consume – isabgol can be consumed either in the morning or at night based on other problems. You can have it in any of the above mentioned ways.

Helps in diabetes

The insoluble fibre in isabgol helps in diabetes by managing hunger pangs. The soluble fiber in isabgol makes a gel with food inside the stomach and hence delays the digestion and absorption of food. This helps in keeping the sugar levels in blood near normal and does help against sugar level hikes in the blood.

How to consume – to maintain the blood sugar level, you can have 1/2 tsp – 1 tsp isabgol mixed with warm milk in a bowl. (please avoid adding sugar).

How to consume – isabgol can be consumed with a glass of warm milk or warm water at bedtime.
 

Helps in acidity

Isabgol is a known home remedy for hyper acidity. Isabgol forms a gel with the content of stomach and protects the stomach lining by controlling the secretion of stomach acids and digestive juices.

How to consume – one can consume isabgol during an acidity episode with a cup of luke warm milk. If the acidity occurs regularly, one can continue to take this mix after meals for up to a week. The acidity episodes will surely reduce.
 

Isabgol is a boon to those who suffer with stomach problems, it has so many health benefits that isabgol suits to be called as a magical fiber.

Do Homeopathic Remedies Have Side-Effects?

Do Homeopathic Remedies Have Side-Effects?

In an age where contemporary and conventional medicine seems to cure an ailment only to cause significant side effects, it is only to be expected that people wish to take a look at alternative medicine. One of the primary forms of alternative medicine happens to be homeopathy. That being said, people do have concerns as to whether homeopathy has any side effects, as well.

The truth of the matter is that homeopathic medicine does have side effects. It is only to be expected to see side effects when any medicine, at all, is consumed in an amount which is greater than what it is to be consumed in. The good part when it comes to homeopathic medicine is the fact that the side effects are not close to as bad as those of allopathic and other medicines.

The only signs of an overdose and its accompanying side effects in terms of homeopathy is likely to be that the person will show effects of a high amount of energy. All this means is that the medicine has had its intended impact and has gone beyond that. Once the homeopathic medicine stops, all the symptoms are very likely to disappear without a permanent trace. Is this not better than conventional medicines whose side effects can lead to more medication being required in order to sort out the adverse side effects?

In a few of the many cases of treating patients by the way of homeopathic medicine, it is found that when the course of medicine is begun, the situation does get a bit worse prior to it getting better. This is known professionally by the term ‘homeopathic aggravation’ and is nothing to worry about, by any measure.

Most forms of homeopathic medicine feature a very high level of dilution of the actual medicine, so the risks are minimal. That being said, there are a few medicines which can have side effects if they are consumed in larger than prescribed doses. Arnica, which is a popular medicine, is one. It can cause some stomach irritation. However, as long as it is consumed in the right quantity, there is no need to worry about this. Isn’t that quite a relief?

The high degree of customization when it comes to homeopathic treatment is also good as what this does is that it reducing the risk of side effects. This is because, after all, a side effect is generally caused by the lack of suitability of an element in the medicine to the person who is under treatment. Because homeopathic treatment is customised, the scope of this is limited, which is quite a good thing! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Pain in abdomen could be because of acidity and indigestion if your ultrasound scan is normal. You can boil saunf in water and drink that water. Consult privately for homeopathic medicine.

First lot of people don't differentiate between nutraceuticals and Medicines. Nutraceuticals are nutritional supplements. Second whether someone needs medicines or not is decided by doctor considering advantages as well as disadvantages so instead of you deciding leave to doctor advising-treating you in whom you have trust. Healthy diet and fruits are important but only that is not enough and you every pregnant woman needs nutritional supplements in addition to some vaccinations and reports so meet Gynecologist.

How To Focus On Fruits

M.B.B.S,C.C.A,D.C.A,AASECT,FPA,AAD,M.I.M.S
General Physician,
How To Focus On Fruits

How to focus on fruits in our day to day life?

Eating fruit provides health benefits. People who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy eating style are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Fruits provide nutrients vital for health, such as potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin c, and folate. Focus on whole fruits—fresh, canned, frozen, or dried—instead of juice. The sugar naturally found in fruit does not count as added sugar.

Keep visible reminders:
Keep a bowl of whole fruit on the table, counter, or in the refrigerator.

Experiment with flavor:
Buy fresh fruits in season when they may be less expensive and at their peak flavor. Use fruits to sweeten a recipe instead of adding sugar.

Think about variety:
Buy fruits that are dried, frozen, and canned (in water or 100% juice) as well as fresh, so that you always have a supply on hand.

Don’t forget the fiber:
Make most of your choices whole or cut-up fruit, rather than juice, for the benefits that dietary fiber provides.

Include fruit at breakfast:
At breakfast, top your cereal with bananas, peaches, or strawberries; add blueberries to pancakes; drink 100% orange or grapefruit juice. Or, try a fruit mixed with fat-free or low-fat yogurt.

Try fruit at lunch
At lunch, pack a tangerine, banana, or grapes to eat or choose fruits from a salad bar. Individual containers of fruits like peaches or applesauce are easy to carry and convenient for lunch.

Enjoy fruit at dinner, too
At dinner, add crushed pineapple to coleslaw or include orange sections, dried cranberries, or grapes in a tossed salad. Try fruit salsa on top of fish

Snack on fruits
Fruits make great snacks. Try dried fruits mixed with nuts or whole fruits like apples. They are easy to carry and store well.

Be a good role model
Set a good example for children by eating fruit every day with meals or as snacks.

Keep fruits safe
Rinse fruits before preparing or eating them. Under clean, running water, rub fruits briskly to remove dirt and surface microorganisms. After rinsing, dry with a clean towel.
