Hii. I'm very disturb to take my health. How can I healthy. Plss suggest. And during exam time we always slept very soon so I didn't prepare my course how can I wakeup a lot of time of midnight.
Being a Nutritionist i always guide my patients that the most important thing is that if you are starting a lifestyle modification it needs to be continued for a the lifetime so that you can lead a healthy life in future. You need to always keep in mind that whatever you are doing is gonna be helpful for you in the later stages. So any change in terms of the diet or complete modification in the lifestyle needs to be constant and permanent in your schedule so that body starts responding in a positive way towards your health.
I drink once a week, usually high end scotch and upto quarter of a 750 ml bottle. My age is 31. No issues as such, no hangover. Should I take any herbal medicine or tonic or capsules just to ensure my drinking habits don't impact my lever or any other system of body. What kind of foods would be advisable to improve lever and digestive system?
How to avoid dehydration?
As summer is approaching here are some of the signs, symptoms and tips to combat dehydration.
Dehydration is when your body is losing more fluids than it is taking in.
#prevent it by drinking lots of water daily!
- By the time you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
- Water contains no calories and is great for your health in other ways. The amount of water you need is dependent on body weight.
- You lose water in many different ways: urine, sweat, feces, and even breathing! even if you are sleeping, water is being consumed by your body's functions.
#dress for the weather to make sure that you're not sweating more than you need to. If it's a hot, humid day, wear lighter clothes.
#water load when needed. If you're going to participate in a sport or a strenuous activity, then drink up before hand ("water loading"). Then drink at regular intervals (around 20 minutes or so) during the activity.
# keep an eye open for symptoms. The most common signs of dehydration are-
- Cracked lips
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Dry, sticky mouth
- Nausea or vomiting
- Producing less urine or darker urine
- Stomach or leg cramping
- Feeling hot (body temperature 99-102 degrees farenheit)
#take breaks when you show signs of dehydration. If you experience any of the symptoms above, then rest for a while in a cool area and drink plenty of water. Remove clothing that constricts blood flow, or air circulation. If you are feeling nauseous, or have already vomited, begin with sips of water, and keep sipping. Fruits are great source to replace lost electrolytes. Give nothing by mouth to an unconscious, or barely conscious person.
#use wet towels or a water mist on the skin to aid in cooling.
#avoid any intentional dehydration, like sterneous exercises to loose weight quickly.
#dehydration can often occur with a stomach problems. One loses lots of fluids through vomiting and diarrhea.
#look out for diabetes-related dehydration. Diabetes is another illness that can dehydrate you. An overabundance of sugar (a "diabetic coma") will increase urination as your body attempts to decrease the glucose in your blood. If you urinate frequently, see your doctor, who can tell quickly if diabetes is present.
#heat stroke as an emergency. It is a severe change in mental status or unconsciousness, or body temperature above 102 degrees farenheit, is a medical emergency! immediately cool the person off using whatever methods are available: shade, wet towels, fans, or a cool water bath (below the neck). And consult your doctor immediately.
- Avoid dark, constricting, or airflow restricting clothing. Avoid covering your skin with anything which prevents sweating.
- If you find it hard to drink that amount of plain water, you can try squeezing fresh lemon, lime or orange slices into water.
- Avoid alcoholic drinks: beer, wine, wine coolers, and liquor. That cold beer may taste good after exercise, but the alcohol in it serves as a diuretic, taking water out of you faster than you can replace it.
- Have fruits like watermelon, and tomatoes that add to the water level in your body.
- Drink more water on windier days, because the wind blows water away from your body. Ever notice your breath on a cold day? that mist of fog you see is the water you are losing through exhalation.
- Avoid colas, coffee and black teas; they contain caffeine and tannic acid that serves as a diuretic, drawing water out of the bloodstream.
- A good indicator of whether or not you are taking in enough fluids is your urine. Your urine should be clear enough to easily read through.
- Limit your amount of salt intake everyday. Those salty fries may look good. But they will dehydrate your body faster. If your going to eat something salty, make sure to have some water on hand! or just drink more water!
- If your body becomes 2 percent dehydrated or more, you can become lethargic, mentally slow, and cranky. But drinking an appropriate amount of fluids not only hydrates your body and helps you beat the heat, but also cleanses your system and flushes out toxins, transports nutrients, lubricates joints, aids your digestive system.
Stay hydrated and keep safe this summer.
