Do We Really Need Health Supplements?

It is important for you to have a healthy and balanced body in order to perform your daily activities well. People often think health supplements are efficient alternatives to a healthy diet and regular physical exercise while most of the doctors and nutritionists believe that there is no need for any health supplement if you take in right quantity and quality of food and engage in regular exercise. While health supplements are not alternatives to a healthy lifestyle, they are somewhat necessary for everyday health in the hectic lifestyles of today.

Nowadays, stress (learn more about for Controlling Everyday STRESS) is a constant companion and the foods that we consume are often not of proper quality. You may think that you are taking foods full of nutrients but pesticides and chemicals used farming diminish the nutrient content from the crops. This creates a necessity for taking health supplements for the proper nourishment of body.People with certain medical conditions also need supplements. Supplements fill the gap in your diet.

Beneficial health supplements:

  1. Pregnant women and breastfeeding (leanr more about the Benefits of Breastfeeding) women need iron supplements. Folic acid can be supplemented in your diet in order to reduce the chances of birth defects.
  2. You can take in vitamin D supplements if they don't get enough sunlight every day. Adults, especially after the age of 40 need vitamin D and calcium supplements to maintain bone health.
  3. Adults above the age of 40 are also advised to take vitamin B-12 supplements. 

Supplements have some side effects depending upon your health condition. If you take some supplements along with some other medicines or before surgeries, they can lead to serious complications. Research has concluded that some vitamin and minerals supplements particularly iron supplements, increase the risk of death. So it is necessary to have a proper examination of the body before you take health supplements. The risk factors include: 

  1. Taking vitamin B6 regularly in excess of 100 mg may lead to damage of your nerves
  2. Taking 400 international units of vitamin E on a regular basis increases the health risk and may even lead to premature death
  3. Taking multivitamins does not supplement poor eating habits.

I am just worried that I have problems with my health. They were saying that menstrual cramps is quite normal, but I've just noticed that most of them can still handle the pain and function well. But with me, it was really painful to the point that I really can't stand, walk, and function well. It feels like my uterus is killing me. I always depend on painkillers and sometimes they are not working with me. I don't want to depend on medicines anymore. It was just really hard, is this still normal?

Hello- Menstrual pain are not normal. You can check on your elders at home for this as two decades earlier only few % of females were suffering from the issue and presently few % is exempted from this agony. The reason behind is improper diet and schedule done specially near the time of menses. Pain during menses is due to improper tone of uterus muscles. Use Dashmoolaristha 2 tsp twice daily for 10 days before menses. This single medicine will cure all of your menstrual problems (do not use the medicine more than ten days as the body will become habitual to it and will not respond quickly)

You should keep your weight in control by regular exercise and diet control. If possible get a sonography. Start minimum 45 min of walk daily. Reduce sweets, fried, oily food. Take whole grains and include proteins like pulses, curd, soya in your meals.

Hello Dear ,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems.

Lower abdomen is the place where the uterus lies. and due to pregnancy there is extra blood flow and the uterus becomes heavier. Due to this the ligaments which hold the uterus are under strain and patients feel ache in back and tummy. Apart from this there could be many reasons for pain right from acidity constipation gaseous entrapment ovarian cyst ureteric stone etc So only a examination and sonography can rule out why you have pain. Generally by 7 weeks the embryo's heart beats are visible on sonography

Hi. Avoid drink out sided water and more cold water. Burning sensation cause by itching by infected water or foods or dust area. Drink warm water after meals. Do gargle with warm water. Avoid high acidic foods. High acidic foods also create burning sensation. Then take few alkline foods to control acidity. Milk is best option for it.

Thanks for the query. Irregular periods can be due to hormonal disbalance or even stress. Before going for complete hormonal analysis you can go for a whole abdomen sonography to rule out ovarian cyst. Review with reports to start with homoeopathic treatment.
