Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Be it burgers, bagels, muffins, sandwiches or simple toasts, bread has made headway into the diets of a huge portion of the populace. Although a staple diet for many since time immemorial, the consumption of bread has increased extensively in the recent past. But, which type of bread should we intake to incur the best health impacts is a question that bothers many. The general assumption is that the wholegrain variety is the best alternative. However, the barrage of marketing tactics makes it impossible to distinguish the best variety from the others. 

There are a whole lot of myths surrounding the best variety of bread and you must choose wisely before settling for one particular type. It is expedient to look beyond the overt appearance or the name of the bread, one needs to be wary of the ingredient before taking a call.

Mostly, white bread is made out of refined flour which is often striped off essential nutrients and fibers. To worsen the situation, white bread is often bleached with certain chemicals to enhance its appearance.
Certain assumptions deem brown bread as the healthier option. Unfortunately, it isn't true always. More often than not, brown bread is simply white bread with artificial coloring added to it or is caramelized. They essentially add no surplus nutritional value.

Similarly, multigrain bread can often mislead the consumers about its health impacts. Unlike whole wheat bread, multigrain breads are usually chemically treated with softened grains. This does not effectively recover the lost nutrients of the bread.

Whole wheat bread has more pronounced health benefits. It contains more wheat germ and fibers in comparison to the more processed varieties of bread. Having evaded the toxic additives, it has relatively healthier effects on our blood sugar levels.

As you realize that the bread that you eat does not necessarily affect your health favorably, wisdom lies in seeking out the least harmful variety. In that context, rye bread or spelt bread contains greater amount of minerals. Besides, bread made from barley, oats and millets have greater mineral content than the commercially hybridized varieties and promote better health.

Allergies in general & Homeopathy:

Allergy is the term we can use for anything which reacts adversely causing various types of symptoms which are not common. The things which cause allergy are called as Allergens. Those may be in the form of Food[milk, chocolates, sea food, cold items like ice creams, citrus. Like lemonades,ghee made, few nuts, shells,Fish?etc], Season,Environment, weather,Animals/Fur,ticks n mites,Metals,Chemicals, Drugs,Dust, Pollution,Soaps, Detergents, Fragrances, Perfumes, Pollen etc?.

All these may not be causative factor for one person who is already a sufferer.It varies from person to person.The people who are allergic to certain things in any form may not be allergic to other things,& the Allergens which create any problem in one may not show any effect on the other.It all depends purely on individual sensitivity, Immunity levels.In few, Genetic, hereditary factors also plays important role.

Basically, when a person becomes allergic to certain thing, there will be production of antibodies into the body as a general defense mechanism.But then the reaction b/w the allergens & antibodies will cause increased release of Histamine product which results in causing various symptoms. Like sneezings, watery discharge from Nose,Redness of Eyes, irritation, Itching of Nose n eyes.These all called as Rhinitis. But when skin becomes the sufferer like form developing Rash,[Urticaria]Redness, small eruptions, any discoloration etc, with itching, burning, irritation like, then it comes under Dermatitis[may be contact dermatitis].

Majority of allergies start from childhood, as then their immunity levels will be comparatively less.{But it does not mean that adults wont get? it all depends on Immunity, susceptibility of the individuals, which will be resulted by their Life style, any other health problems,stress factors etc].

If care was taken in initial stages, then in majority of cases, there will be no more further progress or c/o.S
First we have to observe the causative factors from which we are getting the c/o.If it can be avoidable, better to avoid; if cant, then,its ideal to go for T/t.
As prevention is better than Cure,Keep children distant from Pets,Fur toys, maintaining good hygiene, avoiding unnecessary medication for small small c/o also,application of different creams,Giving nutritious food,[food containing Vit C, B, A] physical exercises, {for infants? breast feeding for minimum 6-9 months will rise up their immunity levels] all will help them to be free from allergies. Practising the Pranayama, [breathing exercises] will give tremendous results in relieving the rhinitis c/o.
If allergies are neglected in initial condition, then they may progress into Sinusitis, Asthma, Eczema, anaphylactic shock etc.
Frequent usage of antihistamines gradually will decrease the effect of medicine & increase the resistance power of the allergens.Moreover, by the use of antihistamine, patient will feel more drowsy, dull,irritable, even more anxious also some times. If once the action of antihistamine diminished, then there will be no other choice except taking steroids, which will show many more side effects on long run of usage.
In Homeopathy, As Cure always based on the selection of symptoms, analysis of a person, there will not be any side effects.
Drugs like Arsenic album, Nux.Vomica, Calcarea carb, Tuberculinum, Carcinosin, Phosphorus, Rhus.Tox, Bell,Apis, Bromium, Lyssin, Hepar sulph, Nitric acid, Gelsemium,Silicea,Pulsatilla.Etc will help in giving Cure from various allergies.

Note:But always the drug & potency should be under guidance of Expert only.

Hello. White patches/ dots on your skin are a common type of depigmented skin lesion associated with an infection, allergy, or autoimmune disorder. One common cause of white spots, or hypopigmentation, is a fungal infection of the skin known as tinea versicolor (associated with other symptoms, such as itching or dryness on or around the white patches). This fungal infection is not contagious and can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications. The white spots and patches can also be because of deficiency of vitamin d (for which 15-20 minutes of exposure to early morning sunlight without sunscreen is needed, 3-4times a week). Or else they could be idiopathic (i. E, without any cause). Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder which can be treated with homoeopathic medicines, but chances of relapses are also there. Please tell me other symptoms like about sensation on the area, since how long do you have this patch, any family history of white patch, etc. Meantime, you can start with homoeopathic medicines - cina 1m/ one dose daily at night and ars. Sulph. Flavum. 200/ twice daily for 20 days (it is safe). Apply a good brand's sunscreen with spf 40 on the skin (specially on the white patches/ spots) 20-30 minutes before going out under the sunscreen and reapply it after 3-4 hrs. Again.

Actually I have so many marks on my face tell me a good medicine to remove this scars.
A quick and easy solution can be found in your kitchen or your nearest grocery store — lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 1. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 2. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above.

itchy scalp might be due to dandruff or any skin infection/skin disease. plz consult once in detail for this complaint , till follow these things. A person loses about 50 to 100 hairs on an average every day. Some people lose much more than that, leading to thinning of hair. This lowers the self esteem and perceived attractiveness of the person. Fortunately, hair loss can be arrested and the earlier it is done, better is the outcome. If hair loss is in excess, then there is a chance to become bald, which can lower down your confidence, but no need to worry as hair transplantation is a permanent solution for baldness. Coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. 1. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 2. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 3. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 4. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Unhealthy hair habits can cause hair loss. Common culprits for thinning of hair are: 1)Brushing vigorously:- Brushing your hair aggressively puts a lot of pressure on the hair fiber, causing the cuticle to flake and fall away. Combing wet hair is not advisable as it can cause excessive pulling and breakage. 2)Tight ponytails and braids:- Tying your hair in tight ponytails and braids can lead to thinner hair as these techniques cause hair traction. Due to traction large amount of hair gets damaged and may fall out. Sometimes the damages caused by hair traction are permanent. 3) Unbalanced diet:- Well balanced and nourished diet promotes healthy hair. Protein repairs, strengthens and boosts cell growth. Iron and zinc aids in the growth of follicles. Eggs provide supplement to the hair as they are rich in protein and B vitamins which are necessary for growth. Plz follow above mentioned things as much as possible. Take these primary medicines to reduce dandruff and hairfall. 1)Lakshadi guggulu 500 mg twice day 2)Gandhak Rasayan vati500 mg twice day 3) bhrungraj vati 500mg twice day. Take medicines for 30 days, and stop use of market shampoo and conditioner. Instead use shikekai powder+ trifala powder for washing of hairs.(it gives very elegant result as compared to products you are using ). It will reude your hairfall and hairs will be thick, black and silky. Hope this answers your query. Feel free to consult privately for further information and treatment guidelines. Thank you.

I have problem of hair failing and constipation since one month. Please advice me what should I do?
Hairfall - start taking black til (seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. Avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items, too much of salt in food shud be avoided. Start avle ka murabba daily. Also have a high protien rich diet e. G. Pulses, dry fruits, black gram, ground nut etc, white of egg (if you eat egg). Also oil your hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shamppoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with shirodhara with herbal oil and nasyam therapy for atleast 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes. Home remedy for chronic constipation n flatulence- bel's pulp (bilva, aegle marmelos)- 100 gm sonf - 100 gm isabgol - 100 gm cardamom (small) - 100 gm mix all well with sugar (300 gm)- store this granulated powder well. Consume 10 gm in morning before breakfast with lukewarm water. Repeat 10 gm at night after meals with lukewarm water. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that you may consult me privately over lybrate. Please update with your valuable feedback.

Acne and pimple problem from 3 years. My age is 18 years now. Please tell me any treatment about this disease.

Acne and pimple problem from 3 years. My age is 18 years now. Please tell me any treatment about this disease.
Do let me know if you also have blackheads with pimples? and what current medications and remedies you already tried to treat acne? acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e or any self prescribed preparations on scars or pimples. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
