Nutrition - How Important It Is In Treating Different Diseases?

Nutrition - How Important It Is In Treating Different Diseases?

Health is much more than the absence of disease. It is a positive quality, emphasizing intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Optimum nutrition, providing all nutrients in both kind and in right amount, is the cornerstone of good health and the cutting edge of prevention. The foods we eat, and the nutrients they should provide, are the most important continuing environmental factors influencing our growth, development, functional abilities, and health. How we structure our lifestyles, with proper nutrition, health habit discipline, and exercise programming, have a great influence on our personal health, and help us reduce our current medical care expenditures.

A balanced diet containing required amount of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and required fats can help your body keep diseases at bay. Here are the major findings -

  1. Cardiovascular Diseases: Cardiovascular diseases, the major killers worldwide, are to a great extent due to unbalanced diets and physical inactivity. The increasing pollution and unhealthy eating habits, put you at a risk of developing heart diseases and strokes. By consuming less trans-fats, saturated fats, salt and alcohol, you can stabilize your blood pressure which causes heart attacks. Add more of green leafy vegetables and lean protein to your meals to make them healthy and nutritious.
  2. Osteoporosis: A person with a deficiency of calcium suffers from osteoporosis which makes your bones brittle and prone to cracking and breakage. However, by adding more dairy products which are rich in calcium, you will be able to keep this condition at bay. By eating foods rich in Vitamin D such as fatty fishes, cheese, mushrooms and tofu, you can ensure strong bones which aren’t prone to breakage. 
  3. Diabetes: Because the insulin production is low in diabetic patients, they are already advised to avoid sugary foods. However, a diabetic patient can add certain food items to the diet which can help him/her lead a healthy life. Foods such as Neem juice, pulses, high fibre vegetables, fruits, milk and whole grains can help a person with Type 2 diabetes live a healthier life.
  4. Constipation: To prevent constipation it is important to include foods in your diet that are high in fibre. Wholegrain cereals, wholemeal bread, fruit, dried fruit, dried peas, beans and lentils are excellent sources of fibre. Fibre and water work well together so make sure you consume enough fluids throughout the day to help prevent and alleviate constipation.
  5. Acidity: Eating too much animal protein causes sulfuric acid to build up in the blood as amino acids are broken down. Eat plant foods to neutralize an acidic pH. Vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and beans or fruits such as raisins, bananas and apples are appropriate choices for neutralizing body pH.
  6. Renal Disease: A renal failure diet controls the amount of protein and phosphorus in your diet. You may also have to limit calcium, sodium, and potassium. A renal failure diet can help decrease the amount of waste made by your body, which can help your kidneys work better. It may also help to delay total renal failure. Your diet may change over time as your health condition changes. 

Physical inactivity is already a major global health risk and is prevalent in the modern world, particularly among the urban poor in crowded mega-cities. Healthy diets and physical activity are key to good nutrition and necessary for a long and healthy life. Eating nutrient dense foods and balancing energy intake with the necessary physical activity to maintain a healthy weight is essential at all stages of life. Unbalanced consumption of foods high in energy (sugar, starch and/or fat) and low in essential nutrients contributes to energy excess, overweight and obesity. The amount of the energy consumed in relation to physical activity and the quality of food are key determinants of nutrition-related chronic disease.

However, this is just a basic concept of nutrition in aforementioned diseases. It is always recommended to consult an expert nutritionist or dietician to know the right diet for your disease. It will be according to your health, height, weight and the severity of the disease. Every individual's nutrition requirement is different. The nutritionist will recommend a diet plan that will help you maintain the level of severity of the disease you are suffering from.

7 foods that lower blood sugar

#1 spinach 
Leafy greens are high in fiber and nutrients like magnesium and vitamin a. These nutrients can help to lower blood sugar blood pressure.

#2 garlic
Garlic has potential to help manage blood sugar. Reports show garlic intake can lower fasting blood glucose. Garlic doesn't have a gi ranking since it doesn't have carbohydrates and won’t increase blood sugar levels. Add more garlic into your meals and replace butter or salad dressing with garlic spread (just roasted garlic with a little olive oil and a touch of sea salt). 

#3 apple cider vinegar
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar reduces certain enzymes in the stomach which can improve insulin sensitivity after meals.Drink 1-2 tsp of apple cider vinegar in 1 glass of water before you eat your main meals, to help reduce a spike in blood sugar level.

#4 chia seeds

Chia seeds are beneficial and high in fiber and healthy fats, omega-3s, calcium, and antioxidants. They also help to lower ldl cholesterol and triglycerides.Chia seeds have a gi of 1 and are a great addition to recipes. It can be assed to your oatmeals, smoothies or shakes.

#5 blueberries and blackberries
Blackberries and blueberries won’t raise your blood sugar levels as much as other fruits. These berries are high in fiber and have the highest concentrations of anthocyanins which inhibit certain digestive enzymes to slow down digestion. Hence prevent spikes in blood sugar after eating starch-rich meals.Satisfy your sweet tooth by making a healthy desert using blueberry, peach and chia seed soaked in milk

#6 almonds and other nuts
Almonds can help regulate and reduce rises in blood sugar after meals and prevent diabetes. People who consume almonds per day have lower levels of fasting glucose and insulin. The gi score for almonds is estimated to be 0.

Ghee In Your Daily Diet - Did You Know It Has More Benefits Than You Can Think Of?

Favorite of most Indian households, ghee is indeed a superfood. Apart from being widely used in Indian cooking, it has also been used as a remedy for cough and cold. Sadly, due to the misconceptions that surround the use of ghee, it is often underutilized. While some are worried that it may make them put on weight, others feel that it is bad for their heart. Little do they know that these misconceptions are not true, and ghee actually has limitless health benefits.

Let us read on to know more about the benefits that ghee has to offer:

  1. Packed with nutrients: Many-a-times, people love the taste of ghee but have strike it off from the diet owing to popular belief that ghee is unhealthy and fattening. However, the opposite of it is actually true and the short-chain fatty acids found in ghee offer several health benefits and keep your gut healthy. Ghee obtained from grass-fed butter consists of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K. Fats present in ghee are free of oxidized cholesterol, trans-fats and hydrogenated oils, thus, the fat present in pure ghee is healthy.
  2. Great for immunity and bone strengthening: Including ghee in your daily breakfast not only boosts your physical and mental strength, but also ensures that your body stays fit and gains the potential to fight against several illnesses. Being a rich source of fat soluble vitamins, ghee supports in the growth and development of bones. It is also known to strengthen your muscles and tendons.
  3. Lowers cholesterol: It is considered as an excellent option for people with high cholesterol levels. Since ghee contains Vitamin K2, it prevents plaque formation in the arteries, which in turn prevents the blockag that may obstruct blood flow and lead to complication. It also increases the level of good cholesterol and lowers the level of bad cholesterol in the blood.
  4. Promotes weight lossAn excellent source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), is known to boost the metabolism which in turn promotes weight loss. It also improves digestion, makes you feel full and increases the oxidation of fat; all of which help in reducing weight.

How to differentiate if the ghee is pure or not?

Ghee is stocked in every Indian household, but the thought of whether it is pure or not often crosses our minds. Adulterated ghee may contain vegetable oils and other greasy elements which are bad for your heart and health. So, here are some methods that can help you check the purity of your ghee at home.

  1. Pure ghee normally melts at body temperature. You can check it by putting a spoon of ghee on your palm, if it melts then it is pure, if not, it is best to get rid of it.
  2. Pure ghee melts within seconds and turns brown when heated. If the ghee takes longer to melt and appears light yellow in color, it is impure.


It has been established that ghee is indeed good for your health, but only if it is pure. The simple tests mentioned above can help you determine whether the ghee is pure or not. So, eat safe and stay healthy!

Are You Extremely Thin? What Type Of Diet Must You Follow?

Are You Extremely Thin? What Type Of Diet Must You Follow?

According to physiologists, human bodies are of three types: endomorph, mesomorph and ectomorph. Endomorphs are round and fat; they find it difficult to lose weight. Mesomorphs are neither too fat nor too thin; they can lose the weight they gain very easily. Ectomorphs are usually thin and tall; they can eat whatever they want without gaining much weight.

If you are an ectomorph and you wish to gain weight, the bad news is that it will be difficult for you. Your metabolic rate is too high and your muscle growth is comparatively lower. If you want to gain muscles, you need a comprehensive workout routine and the right diet. Along with the right training, you need to remember to eat from the three major food groups: carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

I. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrate is the main energy source for your body and you need 50-60 per cent of it in your daily intake. The foods you can include in your diet are as follows:

  1. Fruits
  2. Oatmeal
  3. Potatoes
  4. Yam
  5. Pasta
  6. Whole grain cereal
  7. Quinoa
  8. Vegetables

II. Proteins: Protein is the most important macronutrient (food you need in huge amounts in your diet). Protein plays an important part in repairing your body and building muscles. You need 1.5 grams of protein intake as per your bodyweight. Proteins you can eat include:

  1. Lean meat (Such as turkey or chicken)
  2. Fish (Such as halibut, tilapia, cod, etc.)
  3. Seafood (Such as crabs, prawns or lobsters)
  4. Eggs
  5. Skim milk
  6. Whey protein
  7. Cottage cheese

III. Fats: The correct fat intake will raise your testosterone levels (this hormone is responsible for muscle growth), protect the joints in your body, provide extra energy and improve your mood. You can add fat to your diet by consuming the following foods:

  1. Nuts
  2. Organic nut butter (Such as peanut butter or almond butter)
  3. Fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, trout, tuna, mackerel and herring
  4. Healthy oils (Such as olive oil, fish oil or flaxseed oil)
  5. Avocado

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have a desk job and last two year . How my weight  increase from 75 to 80 in few day.
Less physical activity can lead to weight gain. Try not to sit at one place for more time. Catch up a walk in between. Here are a few ways where you can get most of the walking done- *Climbing stairs instead of choosing the elevator *Using walk-n-talk method while on calls *Parking the car/vehicle 10 minutes away from the destination and walking up the remaining distance *If you travel by public transport, get down 2 stops prior and walk up. Take care of your meals. Look for Healthy meal options. You can connect with me for customized diet plans.
