Hot & Spicy Food - Know The Good & Bad!

Hot & Spicy Food - Know The Good & Bad!

Hot and spicy foods can numb your senses, quite literally! In every nook and corner, you will find people salivating over hot and spicy foods. For long, people were of the belief that such foods only harm your system, inviting unwanted health complications and disorders. Most parents try their best to keep their children away from such foods. But every cloud has a silver lining. Hot and spicy foods are not only about the cons.

Unfortunately, not many people are aware of the health benefits of hot and spicy foods. This article is an attempt to aware the readers of both the pros and cons of hot and spicy foods.
Health benefits associated with hot and spicy foods:

Hot and spicy foods, when consumed in moderation can work wonders for your system. Chillies, peppers, spices, the main ingredients which spice up a dish have many health benefits.

  1. Endorphins are your feel-good hormones. Together with serotonin, the hormones help to keep stress, anxiety, and depression at bay. They are great mood enhancers. Chilli peppers tend to elevate the levels of both these hormones in the body, helping you to fight stress better. Capsaicin, an important active component of chilli peppers has many advantages.
    • It plays a pivotal role in lowering the flu symptoms.
    • It has anti-carcinogenic properties.
    • It comes as a relief for people suffering from stomach ulcers. Capsaicin effectively gets rid of the bacteria H.pylori, which causes stomach ulcer (in most cases).
    • It also helps in lowering and maintaining the blood cholesterol level.
    • If you have been struggling to lose weight, then capsaicin is what the doctors have just advised. It acts as a catalyst, accelerating the metabolism, thus enabling the body in rapid burning down of calories.
  2. In general, having spices in your diet elevates the HCl secretion in the stomach, thereby improving the overall digestion process.
  3. Research suggest spicy foods can bring about a remarkable improvement in the circulation process.
  4. Spicy foods may be a blessing for your heart. As per research, spicy foods go a long way in lowering the cases of strokes or heart attacks.

An excess of anything is bad. With merits come the demerits.

  1. Heartburn is common in people who eat very hot and spicy foods.
  2. Very spicy foods can cause stomach problems, including a stomach upset, stomach pain, and in extreme cases, even diarrhea.
  3. If you are a night owl by force (sleep does not come easily to you), spicy foods will only worsen the situation. Having hot and spicy foods for dinner, or just before retiring to bed is sure to doom your sleep.
  4. Extremely spicy foods can cause inflammation of the lining of the stomach, resulting in Gastritis.
  5. People who love eating very spicy foods are more likely to suffer from acid reflux problems. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Doctor Is biting nipple and boobs does cause any harm to women ,help me in this regards.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- Yes it can. Biting nipples or boobs can make a injury or wound small enough to be seen through naked eyes but will infect soon and can be the cause of sore and swollen nipple with discharge. It can also cause fever during the infection. Recurrent infections can lead to permanent damage. However you can lick or kiss them during foreplay.

I got married 2 years ago. Intercourse not happened because of a small vagina and fear in her mind. After physical examination by a doctor she is suggested to undergo hymenotomy. After hearing this she don't want to go for it. Again we tried. Now it is a bit better by using tazzle 10 mg for me and KY JELLY for her. But penis not crossing the hymen. And we are not getting enough interest to start even. How to overcome this problem? Any medicine to be taken to get interest? And any medicine to break the hymen?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Dear Lybrate user, Proper answer to your query can be given only after examination. It is rare for hymen to be tough. Mostly, it is psychological barrier which is responsible. One doctor has already examined. If the hymen is actually tough, Hymenotomy is the answer. Medicines will not help. You can obtain second opinion if you are doubtful. The surgery is a simple one done under anesthesia. Since the act has not been successful so far, gradually the interest wanes off.

Allergens: Pollen

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health

Allergens: Pollen

Allergens: Pollen

  • Pollen Allergies: What You Need to Know
  • Dandelion blowing in the breeze
  • Pollen is the most common cause of allergic rhinitis.
  • Pollen is microscopic in size.
  • Pollen from trees, grasses and weeds is easily windblown and known to cause allergies.

What is pollen?

Pollen refers to the tiny egg-shaped male cells of flowering plants, including trees, grasses and weeds. Pollen is microscopic in size. It is the most common cause of seasonal allergic rhinitis, sometimes known as hay fever.

Which plants produce pollen that cause allergic reactions?

 

  • Plants that have powdery granules of pollen that are easily blown by the wind include:
  • Trees, such as oak, western red cedar, elm, birch, ash, hickory, poplar, sycamore, maple, cypress, walnut, catalpa, olive and pecan
  • Grasses, such as Timothy, Johnson, Bermuda, orchard, sweet vernal, red top and some blue grasses
  • Weeds, such as ragweed, sagebrush, pigweed, tumbleweed, Russian thistle and cockle weed
  • Most flowering plants, such as roses, have heavier, waxy pollens that are not as easily windblown.

When is pollen season?

Each plant has a pollen season. It usually starts in the spring but may begin as early as January in the southern areas of the United States. The season usually lasts until November.

Man sneezing

About 45 million Americans suffer from environmental allergies. Dr. Sandra Lin, a Johns Hopkins otolaryngologist (ENT) and allergy expert, answers some of the most commonly asked questions about treating environmental allergies.

Can allergic rhinitis in pollen season be prevented?

  • To lessen the effects of allergic rhinitis during pollen season, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology suggests the following:
  • Keep windows closed at night and use air conditioning, which cleans, cools and dries the air.
  • Minimize outdoor activities early in the morning (between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m.) when pollen is most prevalent.
  • Keep car windows closed when traveling.
  • Take a vacation to an area where pollen is not as prevalent, such as the ocean.
  • Take the medications prescribed by your doctor.
  • Don't spend much time outdoors when the pollen count is high.
  • Don't rake leaves during pollen season.
  • If you are allergic to grass, wear a mask or have someone else mow the lawn.
  • Don't hang bedding or clothing outside to dry.

The biggest secret to getting pregnant quickly is knowing when is ovulation period(release an egg from your ovary)..she ovulate only once each menstrual cycle, and there are just a few days during that time when it's possible to conceive. Knowing when you ovulate means that you and your partner can time intercourse to have the best chance of getting pregnant that cycle.consult for further help and treatment without side effects

All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements
According to Ayurveda Science , All the non living and living things are made up of five great elements i.e. Space, Air, Fire, Water, & Earth.
All these five great elements are present in living organism in the form of three biological humours called Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
Vata is a Combination of Air & Space. Pitta is combined with Fire And, Kapha is a Combination of Water & Earth.

In Ayurveda Vata(वात) Pitta(पित्त) & Kapha(कफ) are termed as Tridosha(त्रिदोष).

Tridosha are the forces which govern the body's all physical and psychological activities. If all these dosha are in balanced state, an individual is said to be healthy But due to any reason if any of these dosha gets vitiated or imbalanced, one gets suffered from Disease.

while dealing any patient, an Ayuvedic physician try to make his diagnosis by analysing the levels of Vata, Pitta, & Kapha in the body.
Bringing Back the imbalanced Dosha status in to Balanced Status is the main goal to be achieved by Providing proper diet lifestyle and Ayuvedic Home remedies or Herbal combinations.
