Its been 4 months of my marriage. Previously before marriage I was so active, bold and powerful n now I do not know what is happening to me. I am always absent minded. I forget things n get into slow motion. Like m becoming slow. Not really active with whatever I do. Specially in the kitchen. My mind stops working sometimes. I dont know where I just get lost in my mind. I also feel sleepy. I just get numb, m suddenly if anyone does that work which I was doing. I feel embarrassed. and the family has started calling me as a sluggy fish. What should I do. M losing my confidence and temper too.

Sounds like you could suffering from an anger slow down. If you know what you are angry with especially after the marriage, you could direct a lot of therapy towards handling the problem. We normally get angry, when we want something and we know we are not going to get it or when we are provoked. You could talk to a counselor and see if you both can identify the reason for this anger and as you deal with it a lot of your daydreaming and spacing out will disappear. If this anger is turned inwards, as you would want to do because you think there is no solution to it you could also precipitate depression. Sometimes, the counselor could help you identify the origins of the anger if it that emotion, and make it easier for you. You may get your husband into confidence too.

I'm not a morning person. But if I put off working out until the end of the day, I won't do it. How can I get my workout in?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye, Waking up early in the morning can be tough for most of us. It takes quite a lot of effort to force our bodies out of bed. In such a case it becomes necessary to give ourselves a boost to revitalise our energy levels and kick start the day. Here are a few natural ways to energise yourself in the morning. Get a good stretch when you wake up Take a few minutes to stretch as soon as you wake up. Breathe deeply and stretch every muscle in your body, starting from your toes. This will allow your mind and body to adjust to being awake before you get out of bed. Don’t skip on breakfast We’re often forced to skip morning breakfast because of our hectic schedules but the body needs to revitalise its energy levels. After fasting all through those night hours, your body needs the nutrients to function properly. Skipping breakfast is probably why you feel tired and dull in the morning. If breakfast is going to be delayed start your day with a fruit or nuts. Try aromatherapy Aromatherapy has a number of benefits. You can begin your day by sniffing on some lavender or vanilla to waken up your senses and to keep your mind alert. You can also light a fragrant aggarbatti. Do some deep breathing exercises Practicing this regularly will help energise you in the morning. Get some sun Some seasons it is too hot and some seasons it is too cold to spend time soaking in the sun. But it is essential that you expose yourself to the sun regularly. A 10 minute walk in the morning sunshine will re-energise you naturally. Lastly, it is okay to workout in the evenings as well. The aim is to keep consistency and pay attention to pre and post workout meals.

Babies' Development and the Role of Food

Babies' Development and the Role of Food

It is often stated by doctors that a child's brain and body develop through good nutrition, and this starts even before they have been conceived. If you are planning a baby, then it is a must to tune your body for infant nutrition, as healthy growth of the brain in a child begins much before conception. For example, folic acid intake should be started 14 weeks before conception. Folic acid is considered to be helpful in the early functioning of the brain.

By the time a baby is born, already three quarters of the cells of the brain are formed and the quarter which is left is formed by the first birthday. As soon as children reach 3 years, they have a brain which is as big as an adult's, and when children are growing, the neurons of the brain grow and develop with them. Thus a poor diet can hamper the growth of children, and also affect their ability to process information and learn. This becomes worse if the iron levels in the body dip below the required levels.

Iodine shortage also leads to irreversible motor and cognitive developments in the child. Similarly, DHA which is considered to be an essential fatty acid in the child development, if compromised, can lead to learning problems. It is known that DHA is the key component for the intensive production of the synapse which is important in the initial years of life for development and learning. Other nutrients like zinc, folic acid and choline all play a role in the initial functioning of the brain.

Feeding a variety of food to the baby is important as they help in the development, but certain foods are a must. These are:

  • Breast milk: As per dieticians, a baby can only digest breast milk or formula milk in the initial months. Babies should be breastfed for the first six months as it has the basic nutrients required by a baby, and also gives protection against allergies, digestive diseases and infections. Breast milk also has iron which is crucial for the development of the baby.
  • Iron rich cereals: Babies can be fed solid food by 4-6 months. If a baby can sit without support and shows tongue thrust reflex, then he or she is ready for solids. Starting solids with the introduction of cereals or rice cereals is good, as they can be easily digested. It can also be diluted with the breast milk or formula. As these cereals are rich in iron, they are good for the development of the baby. A diet deficient in iron leads to delayed talking and walking of a child.
  • Fruit and vegetable: A good time to introduce vegetables and fruits is when the baby is 6-7 months. These foods are loaded with minerals and vitamins which provide different textures and tastes to the baby. Carrots mashed and strained, along with beans, apples, bananas, peaches and peas and pears can be given to the baby. These can be boiled or pureed or mashed for the baby for easy consumption.
  • Pureed Food: These foods are generally the meats which can be given from 8-9 months. Meats like lamb, chicken and liver contain iron. The iron of the meats is easily absorbed, as compared to the iron in plants. For the maximum absorption of the iron in the meat, it should be served with vitamin C, some fruits, cantaloupe or broccoli. It is believed that vitamin C boosts the absorption of iron.

Though there are a number of environmental and genetic factors which effect the development of a child, food is one of the most important factors. Thus, it should be kept in mind that good food leads to a happy, healthy and a well developing baby. Start from the beginning and focus on the right portions to ensure the health of your baby.

Cervical spondylosis Diet & Lifestyle Advice Increase intake of oily foods that are easily digested, sweet things, purified butter, vegetable soups, milk and almonds. Avoid rice, refined flour, kidney beans, and other foods that cause flatulence. Avoid physical and mental exertion. Get a good night’s sleep. Have regular, gentle body massage with lukewarm sesame oil. Dhanurasan and Ujjai Pranayam are highly recommended for cervical pains. Home Remedies Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. This helps cleansing ama (toxins) and balancing vata. Peel two cloves of garlic and crush it. Add this to a glass of milk. Boil it on a mild flame till one-fourth glass remains. Filter and make two equal parts. Drink one part in the morning and the other in the evening. Warm mustard oil or sesame oil (1 teaspoon) with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of ajwain (carom) seeds until it roasts to a reddish brown colour. Ensure that it does not get burned. Massage this oil on your affected areas. After that do hot fomentation with salt potli (bag). If you want more better treatment consult me.
