Lybrate | Dr. Mohit Nagpal speaks on IMPORTANCE OF TREATING ACNE EARLY
Do you have cure for Bipolar depression , I mean alternate day no mood to do any work and feel lazy whole day while other day full energy .
Hi I am dietician Shikha Singh from Sherawat Diet Clinic. We are in this since 11 years and have treated different people with different requirements with different medical issues and now a days you can see child obesity.
Hamare child obesity ke cases kaafi aa rahe hai aaj kal. Jaise ki aajkal dekhoge, especially Jo 6 to 7 years or you can say ten to 15 years k baccho me obesity ke chances increase hore hai or uska reason kya hai. Kuch reason hote hai we are The main reason you can say because wo Kehte Hai Na saree cheez Hamare ghar se shuruaat hoti hai.
Aapko kya cheez chahiye basically, child obesity ko cure karne ke liye jo baccho ka roll hai, ek tarah se parents ka usse bada role hai. Kyuki bache ko nahi pata Hota ki usse kya khana hai kya include kya karna hai Apni diet me because wo taste ko prefer Karte Hain. Unke is mind Ko hum change kar sakte hain being a parent. Toh hume un ko kya offer karna chahiye. Starting se hi habit aisi banae jaise ki wo Apne weight ko control kar sake. Uske liye aapko kuch points daily routine mein baccho ke saath bhi follow karna padega ,plus aapko apne schedule me be change karna padega because wo kehte hai na agar aap khud change ni hoge to aap ke bachche Kaise change Honge?
Toh jaise ki sabse Pehle bacche literally love eating junk food jaise- burger, Pizza. But ye unko khilao because Ek bachcha Jab develop ho raha hai usse Sare cheezo ki requirement hoti hai. But right time par right things include karo. Phir aap un ko Samjhane ki koshish karo ki thik hai hum aapko Burger pizza denge but wo hum aapko Saturday Sunday par denge. Weekday par aap apna study par concentrate karo plus healthy food start karo.
Second thing, ki ek hum sab Ki Aadat hoti hai ki fridge mein hum chocolates rakhte hain, ice creams rakhte Hain. Agar woh cheez hai aap ke fridge me Nahi Hogi toh definitely Baccha jaise hi feel hungry. To wo Jaise fridge Open Karta Hai or wo sb bache ki dikhai nahi deti hai. To definitely ye sab automatically Hamari life se cut off hone shuru ho jayegi. To yahan par you have to be more careful ki kya aap store kar rahe ho apne fridge mein, apne ghar mein, apne kitchen mein. Try to stuck with the healthy food Jaise aap diet namkeens rakh sakte ho, apne baccho ke liye diet chocolates Rakh sakte ho ya phir energy bars hai, Bajai chocolate ice cream ke.
Ek Hota Hai ke baccho ko taste they really love taste. Toh kuch cheez unko Pasand aane hoti hai to prefer Karo ke aap Bahar na laake aap ghar par banao.Jaise ki;
- Pasta agar bache ko pasand hai to aap ghar pe whole wheat pasta bana sakte ho.
- Maggi agar pasand hai to aap log aate ki Maggi Khila sakte ho.
- Sandwiches pasand hai to aap Maida ki jagah whole wheat bread
Atta bread aaj kal market Mein Kafi aa rahi hai to aap unko use kar sakte ho. Toh aap Apne Bache Ki favourite dishes ko uske taste ke hisab se ghar par aap banao so that usse bachcha bhi concious hoga aur aapko bhi achcha lagega, kyunki Hamara bachcha healthy food Kha Raha Hai.
Second thing is, chalo ek Hota Hai ke bache school mein kuch workout nahi kar raha hai Kisi sports mein nahi hai to koshish karke uski jo hobbies hai usko dekho. Agar bacche ko thoda sa dance pasand hai to kam se kam hafte me do ya teen din unko dance classes me daalo, swimming Mai Dalo ya phir Karate Judo. Whatever interest ke hisab se bache ko aap kuch activities add on kar sakte ho. Jisse ki aap ka daily routine mein bachcha workout bhi kar raha hai Plus uska diet bhi thik ho raha hai.
Toh yeh kuch choti choti cheez hai jisse hum bache ke sath Hame being a parents have to be keep in mind. To ye cheez aap apne schedule main include karoge Toh bacche ka automatically unka lifestyle healthy Rahega. Ye thi kuch cheeze.

An Ayurvedic Approach to Seasonal Allergies
Our immune system is a complex and wonderful system. When in balance, it does a seamless job of identifying and eliminating potential threats to our health, such as toxins, bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells. However, sometimes our immune system responds too vigorously to a substance in the environment that is usually harmless, such as pollen, animal dander, or mold. As the body acts to eradicate the perceived threat, we can experience the uncomfortable symptoms of an allergy reaction, including a runny nose, nasal congestion, coughing, and itchy, watery eyes. In addition, an exaggerated immune response can lead to symptoms in the lungs (asthma) and skin (hives, eczema). Allergies affect a large percentage of the population at one time or another and can significantly limit activity. Although the body can mount allergic responses to many things, including food, medicines, and other foreign material, in this article we will discuss the common phenomenon of environmental or seasonal allergies.
The Underlying Causes of Allergies
You may wonder why one person can spend an afternoon walking through blossoming fields without any symptoms, while someone else can't step out the front door without experiencing severe allergic symptoms. Heredity is one of the major distinguishing factors. As scientific research has found, your risk of developing allergies increases by approximately 30% if one of your parents is allergic. If both of your parents have allergies, your risk is greater than 60%.
From an Ayurvedic perspective, in addition to inherited tendencies, several other key factors determine whether a person experiences an allergic reaction and how severe that reaction will be. These include the strength of the individual's digestive fire, or inner resilience (known as agni), the quantity of allergen that enters the body, and a person's current state of balance/imbalance in the doshas. Fortunately, there are techniques to strengthen our agni, avoid allergen exposure, and improve our state of doshic balance. By addressing all of these factors, we can help prevent allergies as well as keep them under control.
Ayurveda considers a strong agni, or digestive fire, one of the most important factors for our health. When our agni is strong, we can take in energy and information from our environment, extract whatever is beneficial to us, and eliminate everything we don't need. In addition, when agni is burning brightly, our body won't mount an aggressive response to foreign material such as pollen, but will instead remove it in a healthy, beneficial way. In other words, our body is more resilient to the changes in the environment.
One way to keep our agni strong is to develop a regular meditation practice. When we calm the mind and body, we are less likely to respond to foreign 'invaders' aggressively. We increase our ability to take in nourishment from our environment, as opposed to seeing them as threats. Other mindfulness practices, such as yoga and conscious breathing also strengthen agni.
One breathing technique that is useful for strengthening agni is ujjayi, or ocean's breath. Ujjayi (pronounced oo-jai) is an ancient yogic breathing technique that helps calm the mind and body. Ujjayi has a balancing influence on the entire cardiorespiratory system and releases feelings of irritation and frustration.
Here is how to perform ujjayi breath:
Take an inhalation that is slightly deeper than normal. With your mouth closed, exhale through your nose while constricting your throat muscles. If you are doing this correctly, you should sound like Darth Vader from Star Wars.
You can also get the hang of this practice by practicing exhaling the sound haaaaah with your mouth open. Now make a similar sound with your mouth closed, feeling the outflow of air through your nasal passages. Once you have mastered this on the outflow, use the same method for the inflow breath, gently constricting your throat as you inhale.
Another important way to strengthen agni is to eliminate ama, which is a Sanskrit word for toxicity. Ama includes both physical and emotional toxicity that accumulates in our physiology and can interfere with our natural healing. One herb that is helpful in treating allergies by cleansing ama is triphala. The recommended dosage is 500-1000mg, taken at bedtime.
Reducing the Quantity of Allergens That Enter the Body
Another step to controlling and preventing allergy symptoms is to be mindful of how much of the aggravating allergen is in our environment and making conscious choices to eliminate them as much as possible. According to Ayurveda, we are in constant dynamic exchange with our external environment. When we put ourselves in an environment where we have high levels of exposure to an allergen, it becomes difficult to control symptoms, despite our best efforts.
While it is sometimes difficult to completely avoid an allergen, you can protect yourself from direct contact with it by using a few Ayurvedic healing practices. One effective practice for prevention and treatment of allergy symptoms is using a neti pot to perform a gentle saline rinse. A neti pot is a small container with a spout that is placed in your nostril as you tip your head sideways, allowing warm salt water to flow in one nostril and out the other. By performing this saline rinse once or twice daily, you can flush out any foreign material that has come into your body through the nasal passages.
After using the neti pot, it is very helpful to follow up with an Ayurvedic technique known as nasya, which consists of applying a few drops of oil to the nasal passages. The oil forms a protective layer on the nasal tissues and prevents allergens from directly attaching themselves to nasal membranes.
Balancing the Doshas
A person's primary dosha, or mind-body constitution, can often predict which allergy symptoms will manifest, so it's important to understand your dosha type as well as your current imbalances.
In addition to understanding our primary dosha and individual tendencies, it is important to understand that each of us has all of the doshas within us and can therefore experience imbalances in of any of the doshas. Different types of allergy symptoms represent imbalances in different doshas. By recognizing this, we can more specifically guide the treatments.
Kapha Allergy Symptoms
In Ayurveda, the typical allergy symptoms in the spring season - congestion, runny nose, watery eyes, and sneezing - are described as an accumulation of the Kapha dosha, which is made up of earth and water elements. This leads to the feeling of 'heaviness' and excessive mucus in the head and sinuses. Other symptoms are sluggishness and feeling tired. For the classic Kapha-type allergy symptoms, there are several simple and effective therapies that will relieve acute symptoms.
As mentioned above, the neti pot is a useful tool in treating allergies. In addition to the benefits of removing allergens, from a doshic perspective, it is especially effective in decreasing Kapha in the head and sinuses. The use of nasya oil with invigorating scents, such as eucalyptus, camphor or juniper, can act as a natural decongestant, thus reducing the symptoms of heaviness.
Other treatments that help relieve acute Kapha allergy symptoms include the use of pungent and bitter (astringent) herbs and spices to reduce Kapha, including ginger, cayenne, pepper, basil, cumin, cardamom, sage, turmeric, and cinnamon. An easy remedy is drinking hot honey water, or ginger lemon tea. A classical Ayurvedic herbal treatment to reduce Kapha is trikatu, which can be taken daily. In addition, treatment should be geared toward lightening the body in other ways, such as daily exercise and use of a dry sauna.
Pitta Allergy Symptoms
When allergy symptoms occur in the summertime, the underlying source is often an out-of-balance Pitta dosha. Pitta is governed by the elements of water and fire, and in the summer, excess heat can produce inflammation in the respiratory tract or skin. These symptoms are usually rash, headache, burning or red eyes, and inflammation in the sinuses and airway (sinusitis, bronchitis).
To pacify Pitta and the resulting allergy symptoms, Ayurveda recommends ingesting cooling herbs, such as coriander and cilantro. In addition, herbs such as shatavari, guduchi, amalaki, and neem may be helpful. Ingestion of clarified butter, or ghee, as well as aloe, can calm the inflammatory reaction that is typical of Pitta imbalance. From a biochemical perspective, these herbs contain healthy anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that support our immune system.
Vata Allergy Symptoms
When Vata is out of balance, the allergic symptoms include headache, wheezing, sneezing, and generalized muscle aches. These may be seen more typically in the fall as the air becomes cold and dry. This is due to the accumulation of the lighter elements of space and air in the mind-body physiology. Other manifestations of this Vata imbalance include dry cough, restlessness, and dry eyes.
To balance the excess space and air elements, it is important to stay hydrated and drink warm liquids, such ginger tea with honey. To bring Vata back into balance, use calming herbs such as ashwagandha, which is also an immune modulator that calms the immune system's response to allergens. Another useful tool in calming Vata is performing a self-massage, or abhyhanga.The most nourishing and warming oil for balancing Vata is sesame.
When our agni is restored, we avoid aggravating allergens and ama (toxicity) by making conscious choices, and we maintain balance of our internal energies, or doshas, we are less likely to experience ill health, such as allergies. Instead of seeing our environment as a threat, we can begin to calm the excitability of the immune system and, instead, experience our connection to the external world as nourishing. Ayurveda provides us with the tools to experience this connection and move closer to our natural state of health and balance.
