Loving relationships are known to improve more than just your mood, it improve your looks and your health. Researchers believe that it might just be the best medicine for most people, as it helps keep your heart healthy, beat cancer and recover faster, boosts athletic performance and leads to spiritual and emotional growth.
Mentioned below are a few of the ways, in which love may lead to a healthy heart and life:
- Better Heart Health: Research has shown that women in healthy and loving marriages are less prone to contracting cardiovascular diseases, in contrary to those in stressful marriages. It has also been discovered that love reduces the likelihood of chest pains and suffering from angina despite having high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes in men.
- Lengthens Your Life: The National Longitudinal Mortality Study studied a million subjects and concluded that couples in a loving marriage tend to live longer and have lowered risk of getting heart attacks, pneumonia, cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. Their chances of committing suicide are also reduced by almost half.
- Faster Cancer Recovery: After extensive research, University of Iowa proved that patients of ovarian cancer, who were in loving relationships, had stronger WBCs i.e. White Blood Cells that kill cancerous cells, as compared to those in unhealthy relationships. They also concluded that patients in love recover quickly or completely eliminate cancer.
- Lowers Blood Pressure: Studies show that when couples are together, their blood pressure is significantly lowered. This research even proved that spending time with loving and supportive friends results in lower systolic numbers.
- Keeps You Slim: Being in love is a much healthier and better option than juice cleanse, when it comes to losing that extra weight. People in loving relationships produce more adrenaline i.e. an appetite suppressant and are more likely to hit the gym and make healthier lifestyle choices to look their best. Apart from that, sex is one of the best ways to lose calories and reduce your weight.

During the process of milling, the paddy is dehusked and the outer layers of the brown rice (bran) and germ are stripped off approximately to an extent of 7-10% leaving behind mainly the starchy inner portion. Generally fully polished rice (white rice) is preferred for its superior appearance, taste, flavor, aroma and textural characteristics. The rice what is being currently served on our plates is the dietary fibre depleted white rice either parboiled or non-parboiled (hence called refined grain) which is highly starchy in nature.
During ancient period, hand pounded rice (not a 100% brown rice) was consumed and today due to the advancements in milling technology (to reduce the loss due to breakage of grains in the traditional handpounding process), the hand pounding practice has vanished and is replaced by modern rice milling machinery which delivers higher yield of polished rice (either raw or parboiled). In the traditional manual practice of hand pounding, the paddy was pounded using a pounder in a stone mortar, which was then winnowed to remove the husk and minimal amounts of bran to yield hand pounded rice and thus minimal degree of polishing. This rice is also nutritionally superior compared to fully polished rice that is being currently consumed. However, brown rice contains the highest nutrients compared to both hand pounded and white rice.
A study has shown a strong association between refined grain (polished rice or white rice) consumption and the metabolic syndrome (clustering of metabolic abnormalities including glucose intolerance, central obesity, dyslipidemia and hypertension), and diabetes risk in urban adult south indian population. The study also reported that almost half of the (50%) of the daily calories in our population were derived from refined grains predominantly polished white rice (on an average the intake was around 250 g of polished rice (uncooked) per day).
Many studies from the western countries have shown risk reduction of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes with consumption of whole grains such as brown rice. However, such a study had not been possible in india due to difficulty in obtaining genuine brown rice in the market. Of late brown rice is gaining importance due to increased awareness on the health benefits of wholegrain consumption and lots of products with labels of ?brown rice?, ?hand pounded rice? are being marketed widely. The nutrition and ingredient labels are often overlooked by the consumers. There are lots of rice samples with brown color being marketed under the label claims of ?brown rice?. All the rice that appears brown in color need not be a genuine ?brown rice?. Nutritionally, brown rice is a healthier option to white rice, as it contains higher levels of dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals and other health beneficial phytonutrients. Polishing decreases these health beneficial nutrients, and increases the rate (speed) of digestion and hence quickly raises the blood glucose (so a high glycemic index food). A study from our centre has indicated that with progressive polishing of brown rice, the dietary fibre content decreased and the available carbohydrate (the carbohydrates which are available for metabolism) content increased. With polishing, the decrease in the levels of proteins, fat, minerals, ?-oryzanol, polyphenols and vitamin e was also observed. Thus the process of polishing not only decreases the dietary fibre content but also the other health beneficial nutrients of rice. Such a polished rice choice being a high gi food and when consumed as a staple (consumed in all meals and in greater quantity) could further increase the glycemic load (gl) of the diets which are known to increase the insulin demand and elicit higher glycemic and insulinemic responses triggering the risk for type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Recently, a market survey was conducted in the different parts of chennai in shops, kiosks and super markets regarding the availability of brown rice. Rice samples with label claims of ?brown rice?, ?hand pounded rice? were collected and examined. To our surprise some retailers were selling parboiled polished red rice (kerala rice) [picture 1] as brown rice. It is important for the consumers to know the characteristics of brown rice to make a judicious choice in the market.
Brown rice appears brown, glossy and smooth with intact bran and the germ . In contrast the polished white rice is whiter and is devoid of the bran and germ.
The department of foods, nutrition and dietetics research at madras diabetes research foundation, chennai prepared brown rice (0% polish), minimally polished rice (2.3% polish) and white rice (9.7% polish) from parboiled bpt (baptla variety) paddy and their gi was tested. Brown rice showed the least gi compared to the other two rice samples. Moreover brown rice based traditional south indian preparations (idli, dosa, upma, sambhar rice etc,) exhibited a lower gi compared to the corresponding white rice based preparations. In addition, our studies with 24 hr glucose monitoring system have also shown significant improvement in the 24 h glucose response of brown rice compared to minimally polished and white rice based diet in overweight adults.
Further, evaluation of the commonly consumed indian rice varieties namely; sonamassuri, surtikolam and ponni for gi revealed all of these to be high gi category rice. Hence it is prudent to replace white rice with brown rice and also to lay down stringent food regulations for the label claims for marketing of brown rice in the country. Awareness of the morphological features of brown rice and the health benefits of brown rice will be helpful in popularization of brown rice among the rice eating population of india.

Happy thoughts, happy minds. Read Hindu metroplus fortnightly thursday
Obesity is a state of mind body illness. As with all chronic medical conditions, effective management based on partnership between a highly motivated patient and a committed team of health proffesionals is the key to dealing with it. Obesity needs a strong mental wellness and behavioural control. This is about a 50-year-old sluggish lady suffering from weight gain, disturbed sleep and choking during sleep. To compound matters, her history of binge calorific eating caused rapid gain resulting in body mass index of 32. Obesity is pan endemic and responsible for all cardio respiratory, sleep and psychological disturbances. We create a positive mindset by cognitive behavioural therapy, a mental wellness by stimulus control techniques and non food rewards. Stimulus control involves changing the mindset towards food stimulus by positive thought insertion. Every thought has a stimulus, stimulus brings a perceptive change in mind and perception brings behavioural changes. Behavioural changes bring actions. Action involves sinful eating. We change the thought and we call it happy thoughts and happy mind. Normally it involves 12 sessions over a period of six weeks. Structured programme involves self monitoring of caloric intake and physical activity, goal setting, stimulus control, non food rewards and relapse prevention. Follow this structured protocol 1. Two glasses of water in the morning. 2. 30 minutes of brisk walking. 3. Ten minutes of breathing exercises. 4. Specific stretches using stretch bands. 5. Fifty abdominal crunches. 6. Rest and relaxation through the Corpus pose. 7. A cup of green tea. 8. Two atta roti, low carbohydrate high protein chapatti. The atta should have chana, millets, kuttu, bran, maize, fenugreek seeds. Green vegetable cooked in one tea spoon full oil (canola or olive oil) and one small bowl of homemade paneer. 9. Mid morning smoothie with tomato, amla, orange, gourd, guava, lemon, mint and ginger without water 10. One bowl bhuna chana pre lunch 11. Two diet fibre chapattis/ one bowl of parboiled rice, one small bowl of boiled mixed legumes, one small bowl yogurt and mint chutney 12. Evening, roasted snacks with green tea 13.15 minutes of chaotic breathing 14. Pre-dinner: vegetable soup 15. Dinner with baked beans/ fish/ lean meat/ soya chap with yogurt 16. Listen music and do OM chanting 17. Follow right pre-sleep habits 18. Sleep well. This lady lost ten kilograms in five months and became very alert and active in the day. Her sleep disordered breathing got corrected and in fact she lost 14 kgs with her motivation and self discipline.
