Running Vs Walking - Which Is Better?

CCEBDM, PG Diploma In Clinical cardiology, MBBS

Running Vs Walking - Which Is Better?

Walking is a low intense cardio exercise that is suitable for all age groups. For people with bone problems and back pain, walking is the perfect exercise. It is less stressful on the body and has similar benefits to running or jogging.

So if you are looking for reasons to jump on the bandwagon of walking as an exercise, here are a few:

  1. Good for the Heart: Running puts some amount of stress on your heart muscles, but does not seem to reduce the chances of premature death; whereas walking at a brisk pace puts less stress on the heart and considerably reduces the risk of premature death. Running may also cause inflammation in the muscles of the heart and increases free radicals in the body.
  2. Increases immunity: Walking has a beneficial effect on the immune system of the body vis-a-vis running. Running may induce conditions in the body which allow various bacterial infections like cold. You end up falling sick more often, if you run.
  3. Helps in weight loss: Walking is a steady state exercise resulting in moderate level of heart rate. Moderate heart rate sustained for 45-60 minutes is advised to lose fat. Running tends to raise the heart rate to drastic levels which cannot be sustained for long, thus leading to reduced fat loss.
  4. Stress on the joints: Running is a vigorous activity that places a lot of stress on the knee joints and the lower back. If you have conditions such as osteoarthritis and lower back pain, then running is a strict no for you. It is recommended to walk at a brisk pace for an hour every day for maximum benefits.
  5. Walking can be done anywhere: You can take a walk inside your office premises or even walk back to your home after work due to the light nature of the exercise. Running or jogging may require proper gear and may not be suitable for all places. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

The cooking oils that make you healthy - and those that don't

The cooking oils that make you healthy - and those that don't

All food sources that we think of as "fats" are made up of fatty acids. These fatty acids have specific chemical shapes that affect both how the fat performs in cooking (or baking) and how the fat affects your health. These chemical shapes generally are classified as saturated, polyunsaturated or mono-unsaturated. All fats contain all three types but are classified by the type of fatty acid that makes up most of the fat. For example, since butter consists mostly of "saturated" fatty acids, it’s considered a "saturated fat."

Saturated Fats
Examples: butter, lard, shortening
How to spot them: They’re solid at room temperature.
Health notes: A diet high in saturated fat has been linked with elevated cholesterol levels and increased risk for heart disease, so it’s best to limit use of them.

Monounsaturated Fat
Examples: olive oil, rice bran oil, peanut oil
How to spot them: They’re liquid at room temperature but become semi-solid (or cloudy) in the refrigerator.
Health notes: When substituted for saturated fats, monounsaturated fats can help to improve blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing risk for heart disease.

Polyunsaturated Fats
Examples: canola oil, sunflower oil, walnut oil
How to spot them: They’re always liquid—even if you put them in the fridge.
Health notes: When used in place of saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats can help to improve blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing risk for heart disease. "Omega-6" and "omega-3" are other terms used to describe specific types of polyunsaturated oils. Although both omega-6 and omega-3 fats are essential for good health, omega-3s also have additional heart-health and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Cooking
When you’re cooking at a high heat, you want to use oils that are stable and don’t oxidise or go rancid easily. Saturated fats and monounsaturated fats are pretty resistant to heating, but oils that are high in polyunsaturated fats should be avoided for cooking.

BEST OILS FOR COOKING AS WELL AS HEALTH
1. Olive oil
2. Rice bran oil
3. Canola oil

Complete Infertility Investigation - Why is It Important?

Complete Infertility Investigation - Why is It Important?

While some couples conceive with ease, conceiving a child can be extremely difficult for others. In cases where a woman is not able to get pregnant despite having regular intercourse in tune with her biological cycle, infertility tests may be suggested to investigate the reason behind this. In most cases, these tests are suggested if a year has gone by without intercourse resulting in a pregnancy. Women may also be said to be infertile, if they cannot carry a foetus to full term.

Infertility can affect both men and women and can be triggered by a number of different reasons. In some cases, it is treatable while in others, alternative ways of having a family may need to be discussed. Hence, it is very important to understand the different types and triggers for infertility and to undergo complete infertility investigations. Some of the common types of infertility investigations are as given below.

  1. Blood tests: A blood test of both partners is used to assess the general health of the couple and to identify any health factors that may be impeding fertility.
  2. Tests for women: 
    1. Hysterosalpingogram: This is an X ray that can identify if a blockage or any other issue in the fallopian tubes are the cause for infertility.
    2. Pelvic ultrasound: This is used to have a look at the anatomy of the female reproductive system and to check for fibroids.
    3. Laparoscopy / hysteroscopy: This is used to get a clearer picture of the ovaries, uterus and other parts of the reproductive system.
    4. Tracking cycle: Ovulation and the thickness of the uterus lining may also affect infertility, This can be diagnosed by tracking and assessing the menstrual cycle.
  3. Tests for men
    1. Semen analysis:This test is used to get an idea of sperm concentration, motility and the appearance of sperm in a man’s semen. In some cases, the semen may not include any sperm cells. In such cases, a follow up investigation may be required to assess if sperm cells are being created in the testicles. This is known as testicular sperm aspiration or a testicular biopsy.
    2. Sperm DNA: The DNA in sperm also plays an important role in fertility. This test is used to assess the sperm DNA integrity and to see how it may affect embryo development and chances of an on-going pregnancy.

Infertility treatment depends on the cause identified by the above tests and hence it is important for both partners to undergo complete testing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Almost 100% protection can be achieved with condoms if it fits well and is used from beginning to end. It does not have any side effects on either partner. Moreover it also protects against infections which might affect fertility in the future.

शतावरी के उपयोग, फायदे व नुकसान - Shatavari Uses, Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

शतावरी एक वसंत ऋतु का सब्जी है जो कि लिली (लिलीसेए) परिवार के अंतर्गत आता है। प्राचीन काल  में, शतावरी  एक  कामोद्दीपक  के  रूप  में  प्रसिद्ध  था। सदियों पहले, मूत्र प्रवाह बढ़कर गुर्दे को साफ करने और गुर्दे की पथरी को रोकने के लिए इस जड़ी-बूटी का इस्तेमाल रोमनों और यूनानियों द्वारा किया जाता था। तथा एशिया में, शतावरी का उपयोग तंत्रिका संबंधित समस्याओं, खांसी और दस्त के इलाज के लिए किया जाता था। शतावरी एक स्वस्थ पोषक तत्व समृद्ध वनस्पति है जिसमें वसा और कोलेस्ट्रॉल सामग्री नहीं होती है। इसमें बहुत कम कैलोरी और सोडियम हैं। इसमें विटामिन ए, सी, ई, के, बी 6, फोलेट, लोहा, तांबे, कैल्शियम, प्रोटीन, और फाइबर जैसे विटामिन और खनिजों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला है। 
 

शतावरी के लाभ:
शतावरी  के  डंठल  आमतौर  पर  एक  सब्जी  के  रूप  में  खाए  जाते हैं। इसकी जड़ें, बीज और अर्क का उपयोग विभिन्न बीमारियों के लिए किया जाता है। शतावरी कई लाभ प्रदान करता है जैसे कि:
1. वजन घटाने के लिए: शतावरी  में केवल  वसा  और  कैलोरी  कम  नहीं  है,  बल्कि  इसमें  बहुत  से  घुलनशील  और  अघुलनशील  फाइबर  शामिल  हैं, यही कारण है कि यह  वजन  कम  करने  का एक  अच्छा  विकल्प  है।
2. मूत्र और गुर्दे के लिए: शतावरी  एक  प्राकृतिक  मूत्रवर्धक  के  रूप  में  कार्य  करता  है। यह अतिरिक्त नमक और तरल पदार्थ को शरीर से निकालने में मदद करता  है। इसलिए यह विशेष रूप से एडिमा और उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए अच्छा है।
3. दिल का स्वास्थ्य: शतावरी  में  उत्कृष्ट  विरोधी  भड़काऊ  प्रभाव  और  उच्च  स्तर  एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  हैं,   दोनों  हृदय  रोग  के  जोखिम  को  कम  करने  में  मदद  कर  सकते  हैं।
4. उम्र के बढ़ने को रोकने के लिए: एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  ग्लूटाथियोन   उम्र  बढ़ने  की  प्रक्रिया  को  धीमा  करता है। और फोलेट, संज्ञानात्मक गिरावट को रोकने के लिए बी 12 के साथ काम करता है।
5. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए: यह  चेहरे  की  सफाई  के लिए इस्तेमाल  किया  जा  सकता  है। यह त्वचा की समस्याओं जैसे कि घावों और मुँहासे को रोकने और उपचार करने मे मदद करता है। एंटीऑक्सिडेंट ग्लूटाथियोन त्वचा को सूरज की क्षति और प्रदूषण से बचाने में मदद करता है।
6. गर्भावस्था के दौरान: इसमें मौजूद फोलेट  महिलाओं   के लिए  गर्भावस्था   के  शुरुआती  चरणों  के  दौरान  आवश्यक  है। फोलेट भ्रूणों में तंत्रिका-ट्यूब दोषों के जोखिम को कम कर सकता है।
7. कैंसर को रोकने के लिए: शतावरी में उपस्थित सल्फोराफेन कैंसर को रोकने में मदद करता है। शतावरी में बड़ी मात्रा में एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और एंटी-इन्फ्लमाटरीज भी हैं, जो कि कैंसर के जोखिम को कम करने में सहायक हैं।
8. हैंगओवर का इलाज: शतावरी में मौजूद खनिजों और अमीनो एसिड हॉगओवर को कम करने में मदद कर सकते हैं और अल्कोहल में विषाक्त पदार्थों से जिगर की कोशिकाओं को सुरक्षित कर सकते हैं।

इसके अलावा, शतावरी निम्न स्थितियों के उपचार में भी मदद कर सकता है - गठिया या जोड़ों के दर्द, तंत्रिका के दर्द या न्यूरिटिस, अपच तंत्रिका विकार, महिला हार्मोनल असंतुलन, कब्ज, गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर, जिगर संबंधी विकार, कम कामेच्छा, अवसाद, मौसा, उच्च कोलेस्ट्रॉल, एचआईवी संक्रमण, एकाधिक काठिन्य, क्रोनिक थकान सिंड्रोम, उच्च बीपी आदि।
शतावरी के दुष्प्रभाव 
इस जड़ी-बूटि का कोई बड़ा साइड इफेक्ट नहीं है, यहां तक कि बड़ी औषधीय मात्रा में लेने पर भी। हालांकि, बदबूदार मूत्र देने के अलावा त्वचा पर सीधे लगाने पर यह छोटे एलर्जी प्रतिक्रियाओं का नेतृत्व कर सकती है। यह फुफ्फुसीय या फेफड़े से संबंधित एलर्जी संबंधी प्रतिक्रियाओं का कारण बन सकता है जैसे नाक, अस्थमा, खाँसी, गले की समस्या आदि। 
जिन लोगों को प्याज, लहसुन और अन्य संबंधित सब्जियों से एलर्जी है उन्हें शतावरी से बचना चाहिए क्योंकि यह लीलासी परिवार का हिस्सा है।
