सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ
इस बात से हम सभी वाकिफ हैं कि सुबह एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में नींबू का रस और शहद मिलाकर पीना स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य के लिए अच्‍छा होता है। शहद को गर्म पानी के साथ लेने से वजन कम होता है। और इसके नियमित सेवन से सेहत से जुड़ी कई समस्याओं से हमेशा के लिए निजात मिल सकती है।


पाचन सुधारे
अच्छे पाचन के लिए सुबह गर्म पानी में शहद और नींबू मिलाकर पीना चाहिए। यह पेट को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह लीवर में रस के उत्‍पादन को बढ़ाता है जिससे पाचन में मदद मिलती है। नींबू में मौजूद एसिड आपके पाचन तंत्र में मदद करता है और अवांछित विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा शहद एक एंटीबैक्‍टीरियल के रूप में कार्य करता है और आपके शरीर में मौजूद किसी भी तरह के संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता है।


कब्‍ज दूर करें
यह मिश्रण कब्‍ज के लिए तत्‍काल उपाय है। यह आंत को प्रोत्‍साहित कर मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा यह आंत्र म्‍यूकस में बढ़ावा देता है, पेट को हाइड्रेट करता है और सूखे मल को पानी में भिगो देता है। इन सब की एक साथ मौजूदगी से मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है


लसीका प्रणाली की सफाई में मददगार
लसीका प्रणाली में पानी और आवश्यक तरल पदार्थ की कमी हो जाती है जिससे आपको सुस्त और थका हुआ महसूस होना, कब्ज, सोने में परेशानी, उच्च या निम्न रक्तचाप, तनाव और मानसिक स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य पर असर पड़ता है। सुबह-सुबह इस मिश्रण को पीने से लसीका प्रणाली को हाइड्रेट होने में मदद मिलती है जिससे न केवल सभी उपरोक्त लक्षणों बल्कि प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली में सुधार होता है


मौखिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार
एसिडिक प्रकृति का नींबू, शहद और गुनगुने पानी के साथ सांसों की बदबू को तुरंत दूर करने में मददगार होता है। नींबू अपनी लार ग्रंथियों को सक्रिय और आक्रामक बैक्टीरिया को मार कर मुंह शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है। सांस में बदबू का कारण जीभ पर सफेद परत का गठन (मुख्य रूप से खाद्य और बैक्टीरिया से मिलकर) भी है, यह रस इस परत को प्रभावी ढंग से हटाकर सांस की बदबू से प्राकृतिक रूप से छुटकारा दिलाता है

मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में कार्य
शहद में बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटी-बैक्‍टीरियल के गुण होते हैं। इसमें कई प्रकार के संक्रमण को दूर करने की क्षमता होती है। नींबू और पानी के साथ यह मिश्रित – एक उत्कृष्ट मूत्रल (आपके शरीर से पानी बाहर निकलवाने वाला एजेंट) के रूप में कार्य करता है। यह आपके मूत्र मार्ग को साफ करने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है। यूटीआई (यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फेक्शन) से पीड़‍ित महिलाओं के लिए यह रस एक वरदान की तरह है क्‍योंकि यह संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता हे।


एनर्जी लेवल बढ़ाये
शहद और गर्म पानी से शरीर में एनर्जी में भी वृद्धि होती है। शरीर में ज्यादा एनर्जी उत्पन्न होने से शरीर का मेटाबॉलिज्म और कार्यप्रणाली में भी वृद्धि होती है। शहद शरीर के अंगों को ठीक से काम करने के लिए प्रेरित करता है। सुबह में गर्म पानी नींबू के साथ लेने से आप दिन भर ऊर्जावान बने रह सकते हैं


वजन घटाने में मददगार
शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी लेने से भूख कम लगती है। शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी में बड़ी मात्रा में फाइबर मौजूद होता है, जो भूख की इच्छा और शूगर लेवल को कम करके पर्याप्त एनर्जी प्रदान करता है। इस‍ तरह से नियमित रूप से सुबह इसका सेवन करने से दिन भर में आपके द्वारा लिए गए भोजन की मात्रा कम हो जाएगी। अपने दिन की शुरुआत गुनगुने पानी के साथ शहद और नींबू के साथ करने से आपका वजन काफी हद तक कम हो जाएगा।


त्‍वचा के लिए लाभकारी
त्‍वचा के लिए नींबू के लाभ अनगिनत है लेकिन इसके अलावा इसमें मौजूद क्‍लीजिंग तत्‍व रक्त को शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है, नई रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन में मदद करता है। पानी और शहद का मिश्रण आपकी त्वचा के लिए एक अनूठा दृढ, जीवाणुरोधी और कोलेजन बढ़ाने वाले गुण होते है। इसलिए अगर आप स्वाभाविक रूप से चमकदार त्वचा चाहती हैं तो यह पेय आपके लिए बहुत लाभकारी साबित होगा


पोषक तत्वों और विटामिन से भरपूर
शहद और नींबू के गर्म पानी में कई जरूरी एंटी-आक्सीडेंट, विटामिन और पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं, इसके अलावा इसमें एंटी इफ्लेमेंटरी गुण भी मौजूद होते है। इसलिए इसके सेवन से शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली मजबूत होती है। साथ ही यह वजन कम करने में सहायक होती हैं


रोग प्रतिरोधी क्षमता में मजबूती
शहद का सेवन शरीर के लिए काफी फायदेमंद है इसीलिए डॉक्टर हमेशा इसके सेवन की सलाह देते हैं। शहद के साथ नींबू और गुनगुने पानी के नियमित सेवन शरीर की प्रतिरोधी क्षमता बढ़ती है। शहद और नींबू में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स और कई पोषक तत्व शरीर को मौसम बदलने के साथ होने वाले संक्रमणों से दूर रखने में मदद रखता हैं

Hello doctor. I am 20 years old and weigh approximately 73 kgs. I want to reduce my weight to 50 KGS. please could you help me with a diet chart. And suggest me whether taking medicines for weight loss is harmful to the normal working of the body.

Yes taking medicines for weight loss are harmful and so are some of the diet supplements. At 20 your target should be to reduce weight @5 kg per month. You will see sudden loss in first month, may be less in next month, don't get discouraged, after 3rd moth weight loss will be rapid and stable. Do join a gym and take help from a qualified instructor, eat everything healthy but no charts, because being conscious of weight loss will not help you, make it a habit to eat a list of items and to avoid other list of not to eat. Cut down on fats to bare minimum but do take healthy fats like a spoon of honey added to lemon juice and warm water, every morning on empty stomach plus eat a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take one meal of daal roti chawal but no in between beinging. Do weigh yourself only once a week and don't be obsessed with body.

11 Proven Health Benefits of Quinoa

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
11 Proven Health Benefits of Quinoa

Quinoa is considered to be one of the world's healthiest foods. It is gluten free and high in protein. It is among the few plants which contain all 9 essential amino acids. Quinoa is also rich in fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin E, vitamin B and other beneficial antioxidants.

Here are 11 health benefits of quinoa:

  1. Quinoa comes in red, white and black colors. It is an edible seed and becoming very trendy among the people who are health conscious. It is loaded with the richness of many important nutrients.
  2. There are many trace nutrients present which are very healthy for the body. These include flavonoids which are basically the plant antioxidants which have beneficial effects on the health. Quercetin and Kaempferol are flavonoids and are found in large amounts in quinoa. Both these molecules have anti viral, anti inflammatory, anti cancer and anti depressants effects.
  3. Very high in fiber, much higher than most grains: It is high in fiber, but boiled quinoa has less fiber in it as it is absorbed by the water. It has almost 17-27 grams of fiber per cup.
  4. Gluten-free and perfect for people with gluten intolerance: A gluten free diet is considered to be healthy as long as the starches are not refined as this causes a problem. If gluten foods with refined sugars are consumed they are equal to consuming junk food. Quinoa is a natural gluten free product and is used in gluten free recipes. This increases the nutrient value and the antioxidants of the gluten diet.
  5. Amino acids make up the protein. Some of these amino acids are known as essential as we need to get them through diet. Many plant foods are deficient in some essential amino acids like lysine. But quinoa is an exception, as it contains all the nine amino acids.
  6. The glycemic index is usually done to measure the blood sugar levels. On eating foods high in glycemic index, it can stimulate the hunger and leads to obesity. The glycemic index of quinoa is 53 which is low.
  7. Certain nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc and (for women) irons go missing from the diet. Quinoa is very high in all these minerals, especially magnesium.
  8. Quinoa can lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels thus improving metabolic health.
  9. Quinoa appears to be very high in antioxidants, which are increased even further after the seeds are sprouted.
  10. Helps in losing weight as quinoa is high in fiber, protein and has a low glycemic index.
  11. Quinoa is very easy to include in diet.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons To Drop That Hand Sanitizer You Carry Everywhere!

Although hand sanitizers offer you the convenience to clean your hands sans soap and water, and help in killing germs, these convenient health tools also come with their share of negatives.

Here's why you should drop that bottle of hand sanitizer, every time you can avoid and go conventional with soap and water:

1. Creation of Superbugs and Destruction of Cells
Although the ingredient triclosans prevent the development of bacteria, it does more harm than good. Studies show that it aids creation of superbugs (different types of bacteria that are resistant to certain forms of antibiotics). Furthermore, according to a 2014 study, triclosans have also been found to spur the development of breast cancer cells, not to mention the destruction of brain cells, according to research conducted by the university of california.

2. Causes Disruption in Hormones
Excessive use of hand sanitizers has also been found to bring about abnormal hormonal problems. Studies reveal that the triclosan ingredient can alter the way hormones function in the body, enabling bacteria to be able to adapt and become more resistant to antibiotics.

3. Development of Life-Threatening Health Problems
Another ingredient in hand sanitizers that play a role in preventing the growth of bacteria is parabens. This ingredient has been found to be a potent contributing factor in many health problems such as cancer, skin irritation, endocrine problems, to name a few.

4. Causes Skin Damage in The Long Run
As an active ingredient in hand sanitizers, alcohol can have an adverse effect on your health. It breaks down the protective outermost layer of skin, rendering it easy for toxins like parabens or bpa (bisphenol a) that is found in plastics to penetrate your skin easily.

5. Makes You Resistant to Antibiotics
Using hand sanitizers can make you resistant to antibiotics, thereby lowering your resistance to diseases. They may affect your body's immunity by killing off good bacteria that are responsible for keeping you safe from disease-causing bad bacteria. A study conducted in 2011 found that health care workers who used hand sanitizers more than soap and water are 6 times more likely to fall prey to outbreaks of norovirus (a highly infectious virus that causes viral gastroenteritis)
