Nutrition and Dental Health

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Nutrition and Dental Health

Almost everything you eat and drink has an impact on your oral health, especially your teeth. This impact is not just due to the food's nutritional value, but also because parts of the mouth come in direct contact with the food that is taken. For example, if the teeth come in contact with a compound that has a pH value lower than 5.5, the enamel of teeth can get softened.

The following is a list of the foods, which are good for your teeth:

  1. Dairy products: Milk and most other dairy products are rich in calcium and protein. The cells called osteoblasts absorb calcium and create the protein tissues, which are the building blocks of the skeleton. An added advantage of these foods is that they are low in sugar content, which is beneficial for the teeth.
  2. Water: Fluoridated water is extremely good for bone and dental health. Minerals like chlorine, calcium, phosphorus and fluorine can prevent damage caused by acidic foods.
  3. Dry fruits: Most nuts are protein rich. The processes of biting and chewing also stimulate the salivary glands and saliva helps to clean the mouth and maintain oral health.
  4. Meat: Meat is also high in protein content and so it helps to protect the teeth and replenish the dissolved enamel. Fish and eggs are similarly helpful.

Here is a list of things that you should consume in regulated quantities to maintain dental health:

  1. Citrus fruits: Fruits like lemons, oranges, grapes etc contain citric acid. Acidic foods erode the tooth enamel and so these kinds of fruits should be included in your daily diet in small portions.
  2. Carbonated drinks: Most soft drinks and beverages contain large quantities of sugar. The sugar can be used by the dental plaque (mass of bacteria growing on the inside on the mouth) to produce acids and over time, which gives rise to a thick yellow layer on the teeth, damaging them.
  3. Candied sugar: Foods that are sticky can remain stuck in between the teeth for a very long time and cause decay of the enamel and harm the gums.

Aloe Vera - 7 Super Amazing Health Benefits!

Aloe Vera - 7 Super Amazing Health Benefits!

Aloe vera is one of the most popular medicinal plants that have been in use for thousands of years. It is particularly famous for the treatment of skin injuries although it offers a host of health benefits. This short stemmed shiny plant stores moisture in its leaves and is widely used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries. The gel within the aloe vera stem contains bioactive compounds found in plants such as vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids.

Some of the notable health benefits of Aloe Vera include the following,

  1. It contains antibacterial and antioxidant properties: Aloe Vera is known to contain the most beneficial antioxidants called as polyphenols. These polyphenols, as well as other similar compounds found on aloe vera, can prevent the growth of bacterial infections in human beings.
  2. Helps in healing cuts and burns: Aloe Vera can also be used as a topical medicine by applying the gel on the skin. It has been used since ancient times for the treatment of sores, cuts and burns which also includes sunburns. Aloe Vera is the first FDA approved ointment that got the status of an effective over-the-counter medication in the year 1959. It can, therefore, be used in first and even second degree burns.
  3. Prevents dental plaque: Tooth decay, as well as gum diseases, affect almost all individuals over the world. One of the best ways to steer clear of the oral infections is to prevent plaque buildup which is the bacterial biofilms on the teeth. The aloe vera mouthwash is as effective as chlorhexidine solutions in reducing the problems of dental plaque by killing the harmful yeast called Candida albicans and bacterium named Streptococcus mutans.
  4. Aids in the treatment of canker sores: Most people have experienced mouth ulcers or canker sores at least once in their lifetime. It mostly affects the area underneath the lip or inside the mouth and can be very painful at times. Several studies show that aloe vera gel helps in accelerating the healing process of canker sores.
  5. Reduces constipation: The latex of aloe vera has been found beneficial in the treatment of constipation. The latex is the sticky yellow residue underneath the leaf skin and contains aloin and barbaloin which offers effective latex effect.
  6. Prevent formation of wrinkles: Topical aloe vera gel assists in slowing down the ageing process with regular usage. Using aloe vera gel regularly helps in boosting the production of collagen and improves skin elasticity within three months of regular usage.
  7. Lowers down blood sugar levels: There was a time when aloe vera was used as a conventional remedy for diabetes. Aloe vera helps in enhancing insulin sensitivity as well as managing blood sugar levels. It has been used in numerous animals and humans affected with type 2 diabetes and the results are impressive enough to regard it as an alternative treatment option.

Along with these benefits, aloe vera juice is regarded as a sustainable way of weight management which has made it a well-favoured choice of overweight people all over the world.

I have specialised medicine prepared for fat loss. It works by converting extra fat to glucose and ensures complete consumption of glucose thereby giving you proper fat loss and natural shape correction. With this medicine, you can lose up to 5 kg per month. If you are interested in this treatment, kindly let me know Detailed mechanism of action This medicine locates extra fat, transports it to liver. This step gives you inches loss or figure correction. In the next step, the fat is converted to glucose, at this step, your apetite is reduced as your requirements of glucose are fulfilled out of extra fat. This way, dieting becomes very easy. In the next step glucose is utilised in cells as this medicine transports glucose and oxygen inside cell wall where with the help of mitochondria, the glucose is converted to Water and carbon dioxide. The water evaporates through sweat or urine and carbon dioxide is expelled through respiration. This is how fat vanishes and we get weight loss and shape correction.

Diet Chart For Weight Loss in hindi - वजन घटाने के लिए आहार चार्ट

Diet Chart For Weight Loss in hindi -  वजन घटाने के लिए आहार चार्ट

मोटापा किसी के लिए भी परेशानी और शर्मिंदगी का सबब बन जाता है। थुलथुल ढीला, भारी भरकम शरीर किसी के लिए भी अभिशाप है । यह पूरी पर्सनालिटी की रौनक को खत्म कर देता है । ज्यादा मोटापा सिर्फ सुंदरता ही कम नहीं करता बल्कि शरीर को बीमारियों का घर बना देता है। एक अच्छी पर्सनैलिटी की पहचान स्वस्थ शरीर से होती है। बिज़ी लाइफस्टाइल के चलते, आजकल सभी अपनी फिटनेस का ख़ास ख़्याल नहीं रख पाते। पर आप अपने काम में तभी परफेक्ट हो पाएंगे, जब आपका स्वास्थ्य अच्छा और आप फिट होंगे ।ऐसे में लोग वजन  कम करने के लिए घंटो जिम में पसीना बहाते हैं, भूखे रहते हैं, दवाइयां भी लेते हैं कई बार जबकि मोटापा कम करने के लिए सिर्फ ये सब तरीके ही सही नही है बल्कि जल्दी एक्स्ट्रा पेट घटाने के लिए जरूरी है कि आप सही डाइट चार्ट फॉलो करें ।

डाइट चार्ट में इस बात का ख्याल रखा गया है कि आपको जरूरी विटामिन्स और मिनरल्स मिलते रहें। वैसे जरूरी नहीं कि हर शख्स पर यह पूरी तरह से लागू होगा मगर हां आप इसमें थोड़ा फेरबदल कर अपना सकती हैं।
एक खास बात आपको ये ध्यान रखनी होगी कि जब आप वजन घटाना शुरू करती हैं तो सबसे पहली कोशिश कुछ हद तक कामयाब हो जाती है। शुरू में आमतौर पर सभी लोगों का वजन दो चार किलो कम हो जाता है, मगर बाद में फैट कम नहीं होता। इसलिए हर बार आपको अपना डाइट चार्ट पहले के मुकाबले ज्यादा हार्ड बनाना होता है। वजन घटाने के लिए इस डाइट चार्ट को आप आजमाकर देखें फर्क जरूर पड़ेगा।

वैसे तो हर व्यक्ति की शारीरिक संरचना और उसके द्वारा की जाने वाली मेहनत के हिसाब से खान-पान की आवश्यकता अलग-अलग होती है। इसके लिए बेहतर होगा बीएमआर निकाला जाए जो यह बताएगा कि शरीर को कम से कम कितनी कैलोरी की आवश्यकता है।
शरीर का वजन कम करने के लिए कम कैलोरी लेनी चाहिए और इसके लिए बैलेंस्ड डाइट चार्ट बनाया जाना जरूरी होता है। दिमाग सुचारू रूप से कम करे और शरीर थके नहीं, इन बातों को ध्यान में रखते हुए 1200 से 1800 कैलोरी की आवश्यकता होती है। इतनी कैलोरी ऊर्जा के रूप में शरीर में बेहतर ढंग से संचरित हो जाती है जो कि फैट के रूप में नहीं जमती।

  

  • तीन मुख्य भोजन, जैसे नाश्ता, दोपहर का खाना और रात का खाना 300 से 350 कैलोरी का रखें।
  • बाकी बचे 300 कैलोरी में स्नेक्स तथा अन्य चीजों को रखें।
  • बेवरेज के तौर पर ग्रीन टी अपनाएं। ग्रीन टी वजन कम करने में सहायक है।
  • जो भी खाना खाएं, सभी गेहूं से बना हो या ब्राउन चावल हो। मैदा या सफेद चावल न खाएं।

डाइट चार्ट
आपको नाश्ते, दोपहर के भोजन और रात के खाने को ऐसे डिवाइड करें।

  • सुबह उठते ही – पानी पिएं, हो सके तो कम से कम दो गिलास और ज्यादा से ज्यादा एक लीटर। पानी हल्का गुनगुना होगा तो अच्छी बात है वरना जैसा आपको ठीक लगे।
  • अगर कर सकती हैं तो कुंज्जल करें। यह एक यौगिग क्रिया है जिसे वमन धौती भी कहा जाता है। इसमें तकरीबन दो लीटर हल्का गर्म पानी पीकर उल्टी की जाती है। अगर बीपी की प्रॉबलम नहीं है तो पानी में हल्का नमक भी मिला लें। यह वैसे तो बहुत आसान है मगर बेहतर होगा शुरू में आप किसी जानकार के सामने यह करें उसके बाद आप खुद कर सकती हैं।
  • नाश्ता – ओट्स बनायें मगर ये इंस्टेंट ओट्स न हों। सादे ओट्स का पैकेट लाएं और उसमें प्याज, लहसुन, दालचीनी, जरा सी मंगरैल उर्फ कलौंजी डालें, बाकी नमक वगैरा तो डालना ही है। इसमें मौसम के हिसाब से सब्जियां डाल सकती हैं। हो सके तो ब्रोकली जरूर डालें या कॉर्नफ्लेक्स और डबल टोंड दूध या अगर आप नॉन वेजिटेरियन हैं तो तीन या चार उबले अंडे का सफेद हिस्सा। चाहें तो बिना चीनी वाली नींबू की शिकंजी। शिकंजी पहले पियें बाद में अंडे खाएं या कभी कभी आप नाश्ते में दही के साथ उबला आलू भी ले सकती हैं। इसमें हरा धनिया भी डाल लिया करें।
  • ब्रंच – पांच से दस बादाम, साथ में कॉफी या ग्रीन टी या अदरक, तुलसी, दालचीनी, इलाइची वगैरा की चाय बस इसमें चीनी की बजाए शुगर फ्री हो।
  • लंच – एक कटोरी ब्राउन राइस, सलाद, दाल, मल्टी ग्रेन आंटे की एक या दो रोटी।
  • शाम की चाय-शाय – कोई वेज सूप या भुने चने के साथ चाय या कॉफी या ग्रीन टी। चाहें तो स्प्राउट भी ले सकती हैं।
  • रात का खाना – एक कटोरा वेज सूप, एक कटोरा सलाद, या एक बड़ा कटोरा पपीता या एक कटोरा भरकर सब्जियां इसमें लहसुन, प्याज जरूर हो या नॉन वेजेटेरियन हैं तो तीन एग व्हाइट या 150 ग्राम चिकन ब्रेस्ट, या दो लेग पीस।

जरूरी नहीं है कि आप इन्हीं चीजों का सेवन करें। जरूरी ये है कि आप कैलोरी की सही मात्रा लें।  इसके साथ ही तरल पदार्थों का अधिक सेवन और व्यायाम को भी अपनी दिनचर्या में शामिल करना होगा।

Hi, by improving your digestive system, you can increase your weight. 1. You must focus on getting the maximum nutrition out of the food that you are eating and digest that. To improve your digestive powers, you can take chitrakadi vati after meal and ashwagandha churna with water twice a day. 2. You can also have milk and milk products eg butter, ghee, etc along with banana shake.

Trying to gain weight from many years but couldn't able to gain it.
Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3 months. Revert.

For faster buildup of muscle you are required to take pure an simplest form of animal sourced protein as plants supplements do not get absorbed readily. You have two simple and cheap options 1.8-10 to 15-18 raw eggs lighly stirred in a jug be consumed after each session of mild to heavy work out according to your body size and increase it to latter number. Try getting desi eggs and don't take this regimen beyond 3 months. 2. Whey diet plan: take 1-2 liters of natural whey in 4parts a day and increase the quantity to 3 liters a day maximum. These plans must be accompanied with balanced diet in normal manner as well.

10 Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth :

Dentist, Pune
10 Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth :

  10 Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth :

“Be true to your teeth, they won’t be false to you.”

  1. Brushing :
  • Brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Night brushing is very important, because during sleep our mouth is at rest so there are more chances of accumulation of bacteria which cause further cavities and leads to disturbance in the oral cavity.
  •  Follow a proper brushing technique.

    2. Use a good fluoridated toothpaste with a right toothbrush. Toothpaste should have 1000ppm of fluoride and toothbrush should have a small and narrow head with soft bristles.

    3. Flossing :

  • Flossing helps to remove food stuck in between your teeth.
  • It can be done daily or 2-3 times a week.
  • Waxed dental flosses available in market are of Oral B, Colgate.

    4. Interdental Brush:

  • If the spaces between the teeth are wide, you can use an interdental brush.                                                                                                  

    5. Oral Irrigation:

  • Now-a-days, a new dental aid is added which helps to clean the teeth, interdental areas, inside the gums and below the crowns more easily.
  • It is also known as dental “Water flosser” or “Oral irrigator” available in brands like waterpik, panasonic etc. 

    6.  Drink plenty of water and rinse after every meal.  

    7. Clean your tongue surface daily.

    8. Pit and Fissure Sealants:

  • The grinding teeth in a person mouth erupt at 12-16 years of age. They have deep grooves and pits in which food gets stuck. A Sealant is applied to these teeth which makes the grooves shallow and prevents food and bacteria from getting into the teeth and causing decay

    9 .Whitening - Home Remedies :

  • Add a pinch of baking soda in drinking water and rinse twice a day.
  •  Consume strawberries once a day or crushed strawberries applied to teeth helps as teeth whitener.

    10.Visit your dentist every 6 months and get your scaling (cleaning) and polishing  done.

Weight gain is very much dependent on genetics. Results will not show so fast. Also you cannot give time limits to your body. Also it's possible you are not eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, sprouts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines or supplements. They will not work in isolation. You have to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal.

Hello, It's normal to lose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash. For glowing face and weight gain: Start taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face!! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter.
