Take control of your Cholestrol

B.H.M.S ( Mumbai) (Silver Medalist), Certificate In Gyn and Obstetric
Homeopath, Noida
Take control of your Cholestrol
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that's found in the fats in your blood. While your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells, having high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.
Cholesterol is carried through your blood, attached to proteins. This combination of proteins and cholesterol is called a lipoprotein. There are different types of Lipoprotein in your blood:
• Low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL, or "bad," cholesterol transports cholesterol particles throughout your body. LDL cholesterol builds up in the walls of your arteries, making them hard and narrow causing Atherosclerosis..
• Very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). This type of lipoprotein contains the most triglycerides, a type of fat, attached to the proteins in your blood. VLDL cholesterol makes LDL cholesterol larger in size, causing your blood vessels to narrow
• High-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL, or "good," cholesterol picks up excess cholesterol and takes it back to your liver from where it is excreted.
How to know if you are at risk of High Cholestrol:
• Obesity. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater puts you at risk of high cholesterol.
• Large waist circumference. Your risk increases if you are a man with a waist circumference of at least 40 inches (102 centimeters) or a woman with a waist circumference of at least 35 inches (89 centimeters).
• Poor diet. Foods that are high in cholesterol, such as red meat, egg yolk, full-fat dairy products, trans fats, found in some commercially baked cookies, will increase your total cholesterol.
• Lack of exercise. Exercise helps boost your body's HDL "good" cholesterol while lowering your LDL "bad" cholesterol. Not getting enough exercise puts you at risk of high cholesterol.
• Diabetes. High blood sugar contributes to higher LDL cholesterol and lower HDL cholesterol. High blood sugar also damages the lining of your arteries.
• Smoking: Smoking damages the walls of your arteries and also decreases your good cholesterol.
Prevention:
1) Diet: Top foods to lower your cholesterol and protect your heart are:
a) Oats: Oats contain soluble fibre which decreases your LDL (Bad cholesterol)
b) Fatty Fish: Fish has no effect on LDL but eating fatty fish can be heart healthy because of its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce your blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots ,thus preventing Heart attacks.
c) Flaxseed
d) Walnuts, almonds and other tree nuts can improve blood cholesterol. Rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids, walnuts also help keep blood vessels healthy.
e) Cook in Monounsaturated fat — found in olive, peanut and canola oils .
f) Eat whole grain breads and whole fruits to add fibre to your diet.
2) Exercise: Brisk walk for 30-60 minutes daily.
3) Reduce your weight.
4) Limit your alcohol intake.
5) Quit smoking.
6) Follow a Mediterranean diet which is Heart healthy.

You must be away from oily, spicy, fast food and fried foods. Increase water intake and regular exercise. Eating fruits and vegetable is also help to reduce cholesterol. Increase amla and lahasun in diet may be better solution of your problem.

There is no chance of you getting a heart attack just like that. If you lead a healthy lifestyle, there can be no dangers. I recommend that you eat healthy, sleep well, exercise regularly and be emotionally balanced all the time. You may also read the book, "Reversing the Heart Disease" by Dr. Dean Ornish and follow his guidelines you will be just fine.

Home Exercises for Stroke Patients

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Home Exercises for Stroke Patients

EXERCISES TO IMPROVE THE PATIENT’S GAIT   

Full dorsiflexion of ankle and toes is essential for normal walking and for heel-toe strike.Moving patient backwards, normal dorsiflexion of sound right foot.Weight bearing and balance reactions facilitated on affected side.Standing with legs crossed for weight bearing of affected leg and balance reactions.

Stepping backwards with affected leg, getting heel to ground, balancing and weight transfer to affected leg.Walking with arms held backwards in extension.

This helps towards extension of hip before making a step with sound leg.Working for dorsiflexion of the affected foot while patient steps forward with sound leg.Moving a small trolley backwards and forward with affected leg.

EXERCISES THE PATIENT SHOULD DO AT HOME

Before the patient leaves hospital, a relative should be well instructed and trained with regard to his general management as well as being able to help him with his exercises.

The following exercises can eventually be done by the patient without the help of the therapist, and should be done at home as often as possible during the day to supplement treatment.The patient clasps his hands and interlocks his fingers, with the thumb of the affected hand over that of the sound one, to ensure as much abduction of the thumb as possible. His wrist should be in semi supination and extended. Pronation of the affected forearm must be avoided.In sitting or standing, he moves his hands above his head. 

The elbows must beat the same level and the affected arm should not pull forward at the shoulder.This is followed by putting his clasped hands behind his head and then raising them again. 

Next he puts his clasped hands on his chest, making sure that the affected arm does not pull backwards or drop down. From having his hands on his chest, he extends his arms forward so that his hands touch a wall or a mirror on the wall. The affected arm tends always to be lower than the sound one because of depression of the shoulder, and this should be counteracted. 

If he finds this difficult he should lift his arms up again above his head and bend his trunk sideways towards the sound side in order to release the downward pull of the side flexors of the affected side of his trunk and shoulder girdle. Then he should again move his extended arms forward against a wall and he will now find that it is easier to hold the affected arm up at the same level as the sound one.

Exercises with clasped hands to improve extension of wrist and fingers can be done by the patient turning his clasped hands so that the palms face forwards, the back of his hands against his chest. He then extends his arms above his head, back to his chest, and forward against a mirror or wall. Shoulders and elbows should be level. 

With his hands now flat against the wall, he slides them up and down and sideways towards the sounds side, the latter to help the forward movement of his affected shoulder. While standing, he can also place his hands down on a table and support himself on them. 

Keeping his hands on the table, he walks backwards to obtain a good stretch of his trunk with his shoulders forward and he then walks forward again, still supported on his hands. When he can do this with his hands clasped, he can practice standing in front of a wall with his open hands placed flat against it. When doing this in treatment, the therapist should help him to abduct his thumb and spread his extended fingers. 

Then he bends and extends his elbows, his hands remaining extended against the wall.When he is able to keep his affected hand his affected hand against the wall,he can turn his sound side away from it, the affected hand remaining on the wall, the elbow extended and the arm in horizontal abduction, in this way actively inhibiting flexor spasticity. 

There are infinite variations of the above techniques which the therapist can invent and which will make treatment for the patient more interesting.Elevation of arms with clasped hands prior to placing hands on head.

With raised arms, patient turns clasped hands so that the palms face upwards and forward. The same movement with arms forward.Walking backwards while keeping palms on table, either with hands clasped or palms down.Standing with arms raised and hands against the wall with palms flat.

I am suffering from high cholesterol. I can not balance when waking? Please advise
Get a neurologist evaluation. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue / start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food
