Benefits of Honey - शहद के फायदे

पिछले 2500 वर्षों से, सारी दुनिया में अनगिनत संस्कृतियों द्वारा शहद का उपयोग किया गया है। 16 वीं शताब्दी में, चीनी व्यापक रूप से उपलब्ध होने से पहले शहद प्राकृतिक स्वीटनर के रूप में मूल्यवान रहा है। इसकी जल्द से जल्द ज्ञात उपयोग औषधीय नुस्खे के रूप में सुमेरियन मिट्टी के गोलियों में पाया जाता है, जो लगभग 4000 वर्ष पुराना हो सकता है। प्राचीन मिस्र में, इसका उपयोग त्वचा और आंखों की बीमारियों के प्रबंधन में किया गया था, और साथ ही घावों और जलने पर एक प्राकृतिक पट्टी के रूप में लागू किया जाता था।
शहद वास्तव में एक उल्लेखनीय पदार्थ है। 1 चम्मच शहद (21 ग्राम) में 64 कैलोरी और 17 ग्राम चीनी शामिल है, जिनमें फ्रुक्टोज, ग्लूकोज, माल्टोस और सुक्रोज शामिल हैं। इसमें लगभग कोई फाइबर, वसा या प्रोटीन नहीं होता है। इसमें विटामिन, ट्रेस एंजाइम, एमिनो एसिड और कैल्शियम, लोहा, सोडियम क्लोरीन, मैग्नीशियम, फॉस्फेट और पोटेशियम जैसे खनिजों शामिल हैं। 

शहद के लाभ
1. एलर्जी से लड़ने के लिए: 
शहद के विरोधी भड़काऊ गुणों के कारण, यह एलर्जी के लक्षणों को कम करने में मदद कर सकता है। रोजाना थोड़ा सा शहद लेने से, आपका शरीर एलर्जी के लिए एक प्राकृतिक प्रतिरक्षा बना लेगा। 
2. ऊर्जा के लिए: इसकी उच्च कार्बोहाइड्रेट भार के कारण, शहद अप्रसारित चीनी ऊर्जा का एक अद्भुत स्रोत है। यह एक लंबा व्यायाम आहार शुरू करने का एक शानदार तरीका है। 
3. मेमोरी बूस्टर के रूप में: शहद में बहुत सारे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट हैं, जो आपके मस्तिष्क के स्वस्थ को बनाए रखने में मदद कर सकते हैं। हनी मस्तिष्क को कैल्शियम अवशोषित करने में भी मदद करती है, जो मेमोरी को बेहतर बनाने में मदद करता है। प्रत्येक दिन एक कप चाय में एक चम्मच घोलना मानसिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार के लिए एक आसान और ताज़गी भरा तरीका है।
4. खांसी के लिए: शहद एक पुराने जमाने का खाँसी उपाय है जो कि स्वास्थ्य लाभ के साथ भरा है। शहद गले को लेप देता है और तंत्रिका अंत को सुखदायक करके शांत करता है जो गले की रक्षा करते हैं। यहाँ तक कि, विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (डब्लू.एच.ओ) ने शहद को शांतिदायक के रूप में सूचीबद्ध किया है। एक ऐसा पदार्थ जो एक सुरक्षात्मक फिल्म बनाने के द्वारा आपके मुंह या गले को जलन से मुक्त करता है।
5. अनिद्रा के लिए: बहुत से लोगों को नींद आने या सोए रहने में समस्या होती है, जिससे अत्यधिक थकान और तनाव हो सकता है। शहद में मौजूद सरोरोटीन और एमिनो एसिड इस प्रक्रिया में मदद करते हैं।
6. रूसी के लिए: जब आप खोपड़ी के लिए शहद और पानी का एक पतला मेल लागू कर कुछ घंटों तक छोड़ देते हैं, तो आपकी खोपड़ी का स्वास्थ बहुत ताज़ी से भदेगा। यह बालों के झड़ने को रोकने में भी मदद करता है। 
7. खरोंच और जलन के लिए: इसकी प्राकृतिक एंटीबायोटिक प्रकृति के कारण, शहद घावों और जलने को शांत करने और उपचार करने में सहायता कर सकता है। शहद को बस लागू करें और यह मेथिसिलिन प्रतिरोधी स्ट्रैफिलोकोकस ऑरियस (एम.आर.एस.ए) जैसे कुछ गंभीर बैक्टीरिया से घाव को मुक्त करने में मदद करेगा।
8. हर्पीस के लिए: शहद हर्पीस के लक्षणों के साथ मदद कर सकता है. अगर घावों पर लगाया जाता है, तो यह उनसे द्रव दूर खींचता है। इसके अलावा, चूंकि शहद में उच्च चीनी मूल्य होता है, इसलिए यह सूक्ष्मजीव विकास न्यूनतम रहता है।
9. एक मॉइस्चराइजर के रूप में: चूंकि शहद नमी को काफी अच्छी तरह से बरकरार रखता है, इसलिए आप शैंपू, कंडीशनर और मॉइस्चराइजर्स के अद्भुत परिणामों के लिए, शहद के साथ मिला सकते हैं। 
10. प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बढ़ावा देता है: एंटी-बैक्टीरियल और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट गुणों के कारण, शहद की नियमित खपत आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को एक अद्भुत बढ़ावा दे सकती है। 
11. मुँहासे के लिए: इसमें हुमएसीटंट शामिल हैं जो आपकी त्वचा को मॉइस्चराइज़ करते हैं और आपके मुँहासे पैदा करने वाले बैक्टीरिया को मारने की क्षमता रखता हैं।
12. सेक्स ड्राइव बढ़ाता है: शहद एक प्राकृतिक कामोद्दीपक है और नियमित रूप से खपत आपके लीबीदो को बढ़ावा दे सकती है। शहद पुरुषों में शुक्राणुओं की संख्या और महिलाओं में प्रजनन क्षमता बढ़ाने के लिए भी जाना जाता है।
शहद, चीनी के लिए सिर्फ एक अच्छा विकल्प ही नहीं, बल्कि आपके जीवन में पोषण और फिटनेस जोड़ने का एक अच्छा तरीका है।

Hello, a pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.

In last month of pregnancy better to confirm with obstetrician examining her whether intercourse is allowed. If allowed no problem if semen goes in. Better to use condoms.

Firstly, at 6 wks pregnancy position of baby doesn't matter. You ars having spotting and pain also, these are signs of threatened abortion but as baby's heartbeat is normal, take medicines as prescribed to you by your doctor, take rest also, there are good chances that you will be ok.

Would yoga help with gerd? also, can gerd have any effect on the menstrual cycle? mine have been unusually light the last couple of times (i've also checked for pregnancy though i've never had unprotected sex - it was negative). I have extremely random joint pains that aren't static - often in the limbs but no specific side. I feel difficulty in swallowing (mucus in throat). I also have dizziness post-prandial, which I find very strange. I'd appreciate an easy diet plan for keeping gerd in check because I am in a high-pressure job and I suspect the health issues are stressing me out making it a horrible feedback loop. Please help!

Health Benefits & Weight Loss With Drinking Green Juice

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Health Benefits & Weight Loss With Drinking Green Juice
Green juice can be quite tasty, and if you heed a few parameters, you may experience health benefits such as more energy, improved immunity and weight loss. The key is making sure you control the calories -- in addition to consuming your juice at the right time.

Energy-
The natural sugars in green juices are a source of energy.
Green juices are made with fruits and vegetables filled with antioxidants, phytochemicals, minerals and vitamins -- sometimes as much as a day's worth of vegetables in one serving. When vegetables are juiced, the natural sugars in the vegetable are separated from the pulp, which is where the fiber is located. You may feel a" pump" of energy once those natural sugars get into your bloodstream and your glucose levels are raised.

Weight loss -
Adding fruit contributes sugar and more calories in addition to more nutrients.
Adding fruit to juices varies the flavor, but it comes with a price -- extra calories. If you are doing a juice fast and drinking green juices is your only source of nutrition, you can still enjoy weight-loss benefits while getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. The key is evenly spreading out your intake over an entire day since your body uses energy throughout the day, versus one or two servings full of calories. Packing an entire day's worth of calories into a few servings can be a recipe for weight gain and muscle damage if the body needs energy at a time when its glycogen stores are depleted.

Immunity-
Cruciferous vegetables boost immunity as well as provide minerals and nutrients. Green juices usually start with fresh vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli or others as your base.

Timing is everything -
Athletes know how to use their carbs wisely, and you can, too.
Since juicing vegetables removes the fiber and makes the sugar more readily available, you'll need to use that sugar wisely. Consume carbs within 30 minutes of training to restore the glucose you've used during your workout. This keeps the muscles from using protein as an energy source. Using the sugar in the green juice to replace glycogen stores that were depleted while working out means the sugar isn't stored in the body as excess glucose, which may be stored as fat if you take in more glucose than the body needs or has the capacity to store.

Considerations -
Consider blending versus juicing as a means of getting fiber in your green juice.
If you're incorporating green juices into your diet as a means of improving your overall health, blending -- or pureeing -- your vegetables into a smoothie with the help of low-sugar liquids, such as water, juice or milk, may be better options for you. With blending and pureeing, the fiber stays intact. This way, you'll still receive the benefits of feeling fuller longer, which can keep you from consuming more calories in addition to those contained in your green juice.

I took I pill after unprotected sex. Now I'm getting to much hunger like for every 3 hour. If I don't eat. I get headache is it side effect of I pill? Or I am getting pregnant?

Hello- Levonorgestrel, the main active ingredient of I pill is known to increase hunger and appetite, so yes it is a side effect of I pill.

What they do: 

A clinicalstudy by gandhi medical colege, hyderabad, published in the indian journal of pharmacogy shows that fenugreek seed have lipid-lowering efect on people with high blood cholesterol. Those with high lipid levels risk cardiovascular disease including deadly strokes and heart attacks. The study found that cholesterol levels were lowered in patients given 25 grams of powdered fenugreel seed twice before meals.

 Research from the central food technological research tnstitute (cftri), mysore, report that garlic and onion increased the activity of two key enzymes involved in cholesterol metabolism.

 Another study conducted by tagore medical college garlic consumption helped heart patients. In their three year study of 432 heart patients, only half of them were given garlic. Those not eating garlic saw no real cardiovascular changes. But the garlic eaters experienced a significant drop in blood pressure, blood cholesterol and mortality rates.

They also experienced less angina, the chest pain heart patient often feel.

 Deodorized garlic tables seem to work as wellas the raw herb in reducting cholesterol.

Who should take it?

Unless you’re allergic to it (very rare), you almost can’t go wrong by adding garlic to your diet. If you dislike the taste, garlic capsules will provede most of the health benefits without the flavour or odor.

4. Turmeric

The spice is made by grinding the roots of the perennial herb curcuma longa. The boiled dried and powdered underground stem of the plant is used as a flavouring and colouring agent and as a stimulant.

The herb has a mild protective effect against colds and flu; in those who get sick, it appears to limit the duration and severity of symptoms. A study by jamia hamdard university, new delhi, reveals that curcumin, found in turmeric, has antiinflammatory and antispasmodic properties and is useful in the treatment of arthritis.

Who should take it? 

This staple herb works for almost everyone and is effective if taken even as you feel a cold or flu coming on. According to the study, the most interesting feature of curcumin is the lack of gastrointestinal effectsdespite is being an anti-inflammatory agent.

 Try this time-testes recipe from Dr. Vivek nangia, head of respiratory disease, fortis hospital, new delhi: add a teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of milk and boil for a few minitues, drink the hot brew twice a day. “the herb’s antioxidant and anti-infective properties help build your immunity against colds.’

 “boil tulsi leaves in water and drink the decoction to ease a sore throat. This water is also good for gargling” adds mathai.

Tulsi capsules are available in the market. Dr. Mathai, who practises ayurveda, says that capsules manufatured by reputed companies may be taken as a substitute for the fresh herb.
