Dietary Fats - Essential for Health

Not all fats are bad for you. Dietary fat is the important key to have good health. All you need to do is eat the right amount.

How Fat Functions:
Fat is a macronutrient that provides calories and energy to the body. Primary function is that it's an energy reserve stored in adipose tissues. If you work out, your body first uses carbohydrates and then fat.
Good Dietary fat can be obtained from butter, ghee and oils. Other sources are unprocessed nuts and seeds, for example, almonds, pistachios and walnuts. Other amazing natural sources of fat are olives, avocados and coconuts.

Essence of Dietary Fat:

  • Fats are an excellent source of energy.
  • Fats containing coconut oil help in weight loss. Good fats can increase the process of fat burning and reduce unhealthy cravings, preventing unhealthy fat storage.
  • If you are underweight, good fats are helpful to gain weight.
  • Fats maintain the body temperature.
  • Fats save your excess protein that may be used as fuel.
  • Fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E and K) are absorbed in the body with the help of healthy fats.

Remember that Vitamin A is very important for vision:

  • Interestingly, fats are considered as lubricant, preventing dryness and dehydration.
  • Healthy fats protect the body from experiencing inflammation, improving immunity.
  • Cell membranes as well as hormones need healthy fats. Fat is required for the overall metabolism of insulin, regulating healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Caprylic acid in fat acts as antiviral substance, while lauric acid has anti-bacterial effects.
  • If you want to lower your cholesterol level, opt for foods with palmitic and stearic acid.
  • Butyric acid may help in the reduction of risk of cancer.
  • Certain fats such as ghee or castor oil give lubrication to the colon. This supports digestion and the elimination process.
  • Oils have a property to act as a carrier of medicine and also carry herbs effectively to the preferred organ or any tissue.
  • Pregnant women should have fats as these are a brilliant source of food helping in the development of the child's brain.
  • Healthy fats indorse stamina and elasticity. This act interestingly for those who work out or even for those who work for long shifts in their jobs demanding physical work.
  • Good fats boost cognition, memory as well as happiness. These help in the improvement of mental functions and your learning abilities.

Therefore, a balanced amount of fat is equally important for your body as that of other elements. Hence, eat right and stay healthy.

Is performing cunnilingus (eating vagina) is hygienic and healthy? Is it ok to perform cunnilingus with my partner?

Hello- Vagina harbors numerous harmful bacteria such as HPV (Human Papilomma Virus), it is responsible for uterine cancer in most females. Some incidence of throat cancer has also been reported in which this virus OPV (Oral Pappiloma Virus) cased throat cancer in males, the main reason found behind this was cunnilingus (eating vagina). So if you value your life thn I recommend you not to involve in such practices.

Green tea and its health benefits:

POST GRADS IN DIETETICS AND APPLIED NUTRITION, B.SC (H) IN FOOD AND NUTRITION
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Secunderabad
Green tea and its health benefits:
Green tea is a product made from the camellia sinensis plant. It can be prepared as a beverage, which can have some health effects. Or an extract can be made from the leaves to use as medicine. It is also used for weight loss and to treat stomach disorders, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, bone loss (osteoporosis), and solid tumor cancers.
The useful parts of green tea are the leaf bud, leaf, and stem. Green tea is not fermented and is produced by steaming fresh leaves at high temperatures. During this process, it is able to maintain important molecules called polyphenols, which seem to be responsible for many of the benefits of green tea such as anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects.
In general, green tea contains a relatively small amount of caffeine (approximately 20-45 milligrams per 8 oz cup), compared with black tea which contains about 50 milligrams and coffee with 95 milligrams per cup.
Green tea is considered one of the healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amount of antioxidants of any tea.
Some people use green tea to prevent various cancers, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, gastric cancer, lung cancer, solid tumor cancers and skin cancer related to exposure to sunlight. Instead of drinking green tea, some people apply green tea bags to their skin to soothe sunburn and prevent skin cancer due to sun exposure. Green tea bags are also used to decrease puffiness under the eyes, as a compress for tired eyes or headache, and to stop gums from bleeding after a tooth is pulled.

Footwear with heels and their biomechanical impact on heel pain

Bachelor in Physiotherapy, Msc Advanced Sports Therapy and Rehab Science (UK), honorary Doctorate
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Footwear with heels and their biomechanical impact on heel pain
Introduction

Women loves high heels, but if they continue wearing them all time chances of significant foot pain and associated problems either can occur directly or exacerbated by wearing heels. (Morin, n.d.).

Any time person wears footwear that disturbs or realigns the natural counter of the foot they are bound to cause foot pain the experts says. While, if you add a bit of inches (high heels) in to this calculations then the pain can soon escalate to damage says Stuart Mogul expert in podiatry. Due to this, there exists the change in the body segmental alignment. For instance wearing high heels will restrict the natural movement of the foot and in addition to the restriction there is increased loading of weight on that area hence the person is not just crushing the toes, but adding exaggerated body weight on them says the Sports Scientist (Biomechanics) Vasanth Kumar from Chennai who is also a performance coach.

Consequences of wearing footwear with heel

Researchers have found that people wearing high heels (2 Inches or more) have tighter calves. About 13% short on the calf muscle fibres on an average was found in the calf muscle scans among the people with frequent heel wearers in comparison with the people who avoided wearing heels. A study by Journal of Experimental Biology found that high heels led to stiffer calf (Achilles) tendons.

A study by Professor Marco Narici, (Manchester Metropolitan University) that involved 11 volunteers from 80 group of women who wore 5cms (2 Inches) of heel for over a period of two years had issues and struggled while walking on flat foot (Bare Foot). An MRI Scan of these volunteers showed no significant difference in length of the calf muscles in comparison with the group of women who wore flat shoes. While, an Ultra Sound scan showed shorter calf among the women who wore heels. In addition, the women who wore heels were asked to lie on their front on the couch and the researchers noticed the angle of the heel were greater due to the shortened calf. Above all these, the tendons were much thicker and stiffer among the women wearing heels than those who wore flat footwear that causes discomfort while walking on flat feet since the tendon cannot stretch sufficiently.

Prevention

Sammy Margo, chartered physiotherapist from London says not to wear heels or flat shoes all the time but to wear variety of heel heights that can keep the muscle in right length (Anon., 2010). Secondly, the researchers and scientists have found out that performing some regular stretching activities can minimise the issue of calf muscle tightening.

Stretching Exercises

Stand on tiptoes on a step, and using a handrail for balance to lower their heels as far as they can and hold the position for 10 – 15 seconds.
Strengthening the Tibialis anterior (Shin Muscle) muscle can be of a help (Toe Raise) for a count of 8 – 10 Repetitions 2 -3 sets a day says the Sports Scientist.

Tips

Select footwear with low heels – an inch and a half or lesser while a wider heel base can be of more help; a slightly thicker heel will spread the load more evenly. Narrow, stiletto-type heels provide little support and three inch or higher heels may shorten (Tighten) the Achilles tendon.

Softer insoles can reduce the impact on the knees.

Selecting right size footwear is more essential. Wearing shoes that allow your body to move naturally during walking will allow your feet, legs, hips and back to stretch.

Stretch your muscles as many times as possible during the day and while during rest.

Difference in Radiographs between High Heels and Normal Footwear

Conclusion

Do not let your sense of style cripple your ability to stand or step pain-free. “Your feet are, quite literally, your base of support. If your feet aren’t happy, nothing above them will be,” says Dr. Nevins. “Take a closer look at your shoe selection and take small steps now to prevent big foot problems later.” (Nevins, 2015). In addition to all these the above exercises as a regular routine will keep the muscles in the right length and can be used as the preventive factor.

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

Pregnancy is negative and this is confirmed. Consult doctor to have medicine for artificial menstruation. If the problem persists in next month, you have to have some basic tests done.

Depo-Provera injection is quiet ok for most women with 99% success rate and a single dose provides contraception for 12-14 weeks.. But it’s not recommended for those who have unexplained vaginal bleeding,Liver disease,Breast cancer and Blood clots .But continuous usage of this injection may have few side effects also like Irregular menstrual periods, or no periods at all,Headaches ,Nervousness,Depression, Dizziness,, Changes in appetite,Weight gain,Unwanted facial and body hair,Hair loss and Loss of bone mineral density.Change in the menstrual cycle is the most common side effect. You may have irregular bleeding or spotting. After a year of use, about 50% of women will stop getting their periods. Their periods usually return when they no longer get the shots.Long-term use of Depo-Provera may lead to loss of bone mineral density, which makes osteoporosis more likely. This risk is greater if you've taken the shot for longer than 2 years, especially if osteoporosis runs in your family, you drink a lot, you smoke, or you have other risk factors for the condition. But most importantly You can become pregnant as soon as 3 to 4 months after your last shot. But it takes some women up to a year or 2 to conceive after they stop using this type of birth control. This time frame seems unrelated to how long you used the shot. Taking regular pill is a good option than this injection but again some women complain of weight gain with pills also.So the best contraceptive is CONDOMS and a knowledge of safe periods in which you can have relations without a condom without fear of pregnancy and women health will remain intact.Consult me

This is only fluid (seminal, semen) that remained in vaginal cavity. Sperms are in millions in the semen and to get pregnant only one sperm is efficient.

Lower back pain during early pregnancy, which was not there needs further evaluation asap. Feeling tight and does not like to eat are the symptoms are very common in pregnancy and usually suggests good pregnancy. This occurs because of hormone secreted by pregnancy and will disappear in a month time. As of now she needs ultrasound to find out any possible cause of backache, if the same backache was not there before pregnancy.

It depends on whether little semen went inside or not. This method is called coitus interruptus which has high failure rate. Everything in life has side effects but to get effects one needs to accept side effects so both are to be weighed properly. Failure of method can lead to pregnancy isthat acceptable side effect?
