5 surprising benefits of walking

5 surprising benefits of walking

1. It counteracts the effects of weight-promoting genes. Harvard medical researchers looked at 32 obesity-promoting genes in over 12,000 people to determine how much these genes actually contribute to body weight. They then discovered that, among the study participants who walked briskly for about an hour a day, the effects of those genes were cut in half.

2. It helps tame a sweet tooth. 15-minute walk can curb cravings for chocolate and even reduce the amount of chocolate you eat in stressful situations. And the latest research confirms that walking can reduce cravings and intake of a variety of sugary snacks.
Walking for 2.5 hours a week — that’s just 21 minutes a day — can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%. In addition, this do-anywhere, no-equipment-required activity has also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and keep you mentally sharp.

3. It reduces the risk of developing breast cancer. Researchers already know that any kind of physical activity blunts the risk of breast cancer. But an American Cancer Society study that zeroed in on walking found that women who walked seven or more hours a week had a 14% lower risk of breast cancer than those who walked three hours or fewer per week. And walking provided this protection even for the women with breast cancer risk factors, such as being overweight or using supplemental hormones.

4. It eases joint pain. Several studies have found that walking reduces arthritis-related pain, and that walking five to six miles a week can even prevent arthritis from forming in the first place. Walking protects the joints — especially the knees and hips, which are most susceptible to osteoarthritis — by lubricating them and strengthening the muscles that support them.

5. It boosts immune function. Walking can help protect you during cold and flu season. A study of over 1,000 men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less. And if they did get sick, it was for a shorter duration, and their symptoms were milder.

Its not advisable to travel in first three months of pregnancy. But if at all you must, try to remain lying on your back and avoid sitting and jerky roads. Plane journey if short is fine if unavoidable.

Hi v. R. Having heavy bleeding at 53 years of age is not a good sign. It indicated a hormonal disturbance or some growth. Please do not ignore this and get her evaluated properly by a gynaecologist in your area. Avoid using any hormonal preparations to delay the periods without medical supervision. All the best.

On which day of menstrual cycle I can have intercourse with my husband without causing pregnancy.

On which day of menstrual cycle I can have intercourse with my husband without causing pregnancy.
Pregnancy can happen only on day of ovulation but that is not like mathematics. However in a woman with regular cycles of 28 days it happens on 14 th day so it is ok to have pregnancy for first 10 days and after 17 th day. This method of family planning is called safe period which is unsafe. Someone with irregular cycles almost impossible to calculate but can meet gyanecologist with history to get it calculated.

How to Deal with Runner's Knee

How to Deal with Runner's Knee

Runner's knee is a painful condition that is usually encountered by athletes who indulge in varied exercises like running, jumping, walking, biking and more, on a regular or professional basis. The kneecap is a region that gets affected with aches and pain when a person is suffering from Runner's knee. This condition can occur due to a fall or constant bending of the knee, which can lead to misalignment of the knee joints and knee cap. Also, weak muscles and lack of balance during physical activities can add to the risk of contracting this condition.

Here's how you can deal with it.

- Give it Rest: Literally! Suffering from Runner's knee could also mean that your body is trying to ask you to slow down. Wear and tear from excessive levels of physical activity can lead to Runner's knee, and in such cases, the best way to come back to peak physical form is to take some rest so that the knee is free of activity and consequent pain until it is ready to take on exercise again.

- The Only Way is 'Up': When you are suffering from pain in the region behind and around the knee cap due to Runner's knee, the best way to alleviate the pain is to place your knee in an elevated position. Get yourself some comfortable cushions and pile a few of them up before placing your knee on top. This position will give support even as blood circulation increases and inflammation, if any, decreases.

- Anti-inflammation Medication: See your doctor for chronic Runner's knee and find out if you are suffering from inflammation which may require the help of medication. This medication can bring down and gradually eliminate the inflammation or swelling, to give you relief from the pain. Remember to check for side effects before you take these medicines, though.

- Strengthening Exercises: A sure shot way of dealing with chronic pain is to do some muscle strengthening exercises as prescribed by your orthopaedic specialist or a physiotherapist. Doing these exercises will give your muscles the strength to support your knees in a better way while you indulge in athletic activities. Remember to substantiate these exercises with a calcium and protein rich diet as well.

- Cold Compress: In case you have had a fall or suffered an injury which has led to Runner's knee, you can make use of a cold compress or an ice pack to relieve the pain for some time. Ice is a well-known treatment for acute and sudden pain.

Runner's knee is a condition that needs care, rest, and medication if it is persistent. If these methods do not help, you should see a doctor for scans and tests.

Ovashield ds is to be taken from 3rd day. It is for ovulation induction. Rest of the medicine is for better outcome. Your age is already 34 then better go for ivf as iui has failed.

Dear Sperm count is very low, still do not worry. Sperm count is variable, so do not go by single reading. Sperm formation requires about 3 months so repeat the count after 3 moths. Along with this do not wear tight underwear donot pour hot water on testis eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy food eat almonds andwalnuts sleep well minimum for 6 hours do some physical activity every day, get your wife examined to find out she is not having any problem. Tell me her last period date. How is her menstrual cycle? iui will help for low count.

Pain during sexual intercourse is called dyspareunia and has many potential causes. Ovarian cysts are one potential cause. Symptoms of an ovarian cyst include nausea, vomiting, bloating, painful bowel movements, and pain during sex. In rare cases, an ovarian cyst can cause serious problems, so it’s best to get medical help. Consult me privately for more details I will guide you further.
