Chewing Gum Is Marvellous for Your Brain

Chewing Gum Is Marvellous for Your Brain

Though we may think of chewing gum as something that is a recent thing for mankind, it is not so. Chewing gum or bark or chicle has been around for centuries now. Even the ancient civilizations like Aztec talk about chewing gums. With a lot of curiosity, studies were conducted to see what other effects chewing gums have.

As early as in 1939, Leta Hollingsworth did some detailed studies and came up with linkages between chewing gum and cognitive functions.

Over the subsequent years, though more detailed understanding of the chewing process and neural pathway is established, more correlation has been established. It has been shown to have benefits on memory, alertness, anxiety, improved learning and memory and hunger management.

What sort of a gum are you chewing, that also decides the effect it has. The texture, the flavor, and the density are some of the parameters that needs to be considered. The most common explanation is that chewing gum improves blood flow to the brain and therefore has these beneficial effects.

Chewing a gum induces what is known as mastication induced arousal. Mastication or chewing in layman terms, of the gum induces production of certain chemicals in the brain and also gives a form of physical exercise that promotes blood flow and thereby, improves performance. What is also interesting is that studies showed improved performance if gum is chewed before the test, but had no significant result if chewed during the test.

Chewing gum is also shown to reduce cortisol levels and that explains why anxiety is better managed by people who constantly chew gum. In addition, for people with depression too, this simple, easily available gum may be the best method of treatment. It has been shown to stimulate the ventral part of the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for causing depression.

In the workplace, it is not uncommon to see chew gums in the midst of meetings to improve their focus. Studies have actually shown a relation between chewing gum and improved focus, productivity, efficiency, and improved professionalism. When a survey was conducted at the end of the day, gum chewers reported higher levels of happiness being at the job and reduced fatigue and stress.

As a next level of confirmation, studies have been done where EEG and MRI scans have been done to establish the relationship between chewing gum and improved brain function. This needs some more corroboration, which will happen in the coming years, but the benefits of chewing a gum are for sure. Further, in order to prevent yourself from various ailments it is advisable to get your complete body check up done.

Till how many months the side effect of ipill last?
Specially on the period cycle.
Irregular periods are common after taking i-pill. You did the right thing by taking the i-pill. Irregular period may continue for a month or so but it resolves spontaneously after that without any treatment.

Are her cycles regular or not? when she is planning to concieve she should not eat papaya and pineapple. You should have intercourse between 10 to 20 th day of cycle on alternate days. If she is not able to concieve for 6 mths. Both of you should meet a gynaecologist.

Hello, How much bleeding is there during the menses? Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me) or else visit a good gynaecologist for further guidance. Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to Menstrual problem/ irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back..take care.

It could be implantation bleeding of pregnancy or even start of menses. If your menses does not come by 7 days then you should get urine pregnancy test done.

I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend on 12/5, 3 hours after which she took i-pill. Infact, she also took another i-pill the next day. She had her last period on 1/5 and till now, she hasn't got her periods till now. Is she pregnant or are her periods delayed but to i-pill overdose?

Hi overdose of I pill will definitely cause hormonal disturbances but you must rule out pregnancy first. If test is negative, wait for another 15 days for periods to come spontaneously and if it doesn't happen, report back. Take care in future, I pill is only for emergency, not to be taken casually.

I don't think there is any problem here. If you have regular period for 3 to 4 days and change 2 to 4 pads with sufficient wetness, its fine. Relax and enjoy your life

In pcos this kind of harmonal flutuation is common, can not say its good or bad but you need medication to normalise your harmonal secretion, by taking these medicines your cycles may become normal but not ovulation. So please see your thyroid level and hb%, after that take panchakarma to normalize harmonal secretion naturally.

Hi, diet and exercise combination is the only way too lose weight the healthy way. Eat food that is high in nutrition and low in calories. Opt out for exercises that you can do at home. Pick up a cd of exercises or see them on line and follow them while your baby catches up with her/ his sleep. All the best.

No if your thyroid is controlled. Soon after birth bab's tsh has to be checked. Keep in personal touch for regular advice.

You must more careful before such dicision was not good. Now forget and feel good about your marriage. I hope this experience will not repeat in your personnel life. Be honest and loveful to husband and enjoy your life. The role of fore play is very important to prevent pain and bleeding. Go ahead nothing to worry.
