Stop Following These 8 Health Rules

MD - Internal Medicine, CCMD(Diabetology), PG Course in Diabetology
Diabetologist, Dehradun
Stop Following These 8 Health Rules
Most of us are health conscious and know health related do’s and don’ts like the back of our palms. However, there are certain 'health facts' that are over hyped and do not hold true for everybody.

Here debunking 8 popular health myths-

1) Watch your portions: This rule is the source of major eating disorders. The moment we curb or restrict the food we're eating, we also stop agreeing with our hunger levels. We ignore the body’s demand. Instead of controlling your portion size, try asking 'Am I full? Am I still hungry?'

2) Exercise all the time: Exercise is certainly good. It helps in relieving the stress. However, vigorous exercise when you have cold or are feeling unwell may have a damaging effect. Always try to ask yourself, "Am I feeling better after doing exercise?" If the answer is "yes", keep at it. If you feel otherwise take a break.

3) Minimise your caffeine intake: Although excess of coffee can be bad, it is not really a nutritional criminal. Small doses of caffeine stimulate mental, memory and physical faculties. Regular coffee consumption may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease as well as some cancers. The coffee bean is also a rich source of antioxidants.

4) Drink lots and lots of water: Excessive water intake has a medical name, 'polydipsia', and it can be dangerous. Anywhere above 4 litres a day, (unless you are an athele) can disturb body’s electrolyte balance, especially potassium. The kidneys can also get damaged if they are filtering excessive amounts of fluid.

5) Stay away from alcohol: There is no denying the health and social perils of excess alcohol. However, moderated drinking has been its benefits. It increases HDL levels i.e. the good cholesterol, as well as decreases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and gall bladder disease. Particularly appreciable is red wine for it is a fine antioxidant.

6) Skip carbs to stay slim: Fad diets can be of temporary help. Carbohydrates or carbs are important for the body’s overall wear and tear. Carbs must not be completely shunned for they give energy.

7) Eat low-calorie to be healthy: When you buy food stuffs that’s labeled 'Low Cal' you're in fact buying junk. Our bodies need the entire food that we're eating in order to digest it and to retain its nutrients properly. If we can't stomach the real product, why not make our own, healthier version, and leave out all of the added sugars and heavy creams?

8) Avoid fat: When we substitute the real deal with toxic fillers in order to create a "fat-free" product, our body isn't getting the nutrition or satiation it's craving, so we keep eating. Don't skimp out or cheat yourself on healthy fats: Go for it!

10 IMMUNITY BOOSTING FOODS

10 IMMUNITY BOOSTING FOODS


“Cold and Flu” season is right around the corner, and it seems that everywhere you go you run into someone sneezing! How can you boost your immunity so you can stay healthy this Winter? Getting sick is not only uncomfortable, but it also impacts your productivities, your energy level and even your relationship (Have you ever got snappy because you have a sore throat or a headache?) Luckily, there are some easy ways to strengthen your immune system by adding some common yet nutritious foods to your diet. They have high immunity boosting nutrients (e.g. vitamins A, B, and C, zinc), anti-viral and/or antibacterial properties:

1.Yogurt (ideally plain yogurt as added sugar can suppress immunity) – probiotics help strengthen immune system.

2.Pumpkin seeds – high in zinc and omega-3, both essential for a healthy immune system.

3.Cold water fish – good source of protein and omega-3.

4.Fresh fruits and vegetables, especially carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, tomatoes – they are rich in beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A.

5.Ground seeds, lentils, beans and whole grains – good source of B vitamins and protein.

6.Ginger – has anti-viral properties.

7.Garlic – has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

8.Honey (raw) –has anti-viral properties.

9.Green tea –has anti-viral properties.

10.Mushrooms (maitake, reishi, shiitake) – elevate flu-fighting agents.

Bonus tips: avoid sugar and alcohol, both of which can weaken your immune system.

Hello doctors Is suryanamskar is helpful in infertility. Is doing suryanamskar safe during period?

Hello doctors Is suryanamskar is helpful in infertility. Is doing suryanamskar safe during period?
Basically surya namaskar gets all the muscles of your body tuned to some activity and if done in wee hours of morning facing the sun,the entire system gets rejuvenated with positive energy and vigour.During periods it's safe as there are no lower abs muscles involved as such,yes you might get into some discomfort owing to bleeding and padding,so even if you skip it for those 3 to 4 days it doesn't interrupts your excercing schedule.

Since My wife has menstrual problem all times and back pain in mensuration. Please advise.
Hi, is she only having backache during menses? Is she also having some other medical conditions? Is she using any method of contraception like multiload? Any past history of injury on back? For the time being, start with homoeopathic medicine - Arnica 200 and Mag. Phos. 6x - both after every 2 hrly during menses. Revert me back with the details.

I want make pregnant to my wife but four month I spent with her and positive result did not come pls tell what I do.
U need to have regular sex in order to get pregnant i. E. 3-4 times a week and you need to wait for full one year before you seek medical help in this matter. You can follow calender method to find out when you can get pregnant. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.
