Dyspepsia - 7 Ways To Help You Manage It!

Dyspepsia - 7 Ways To Help You Manage It!

Dyspepsia is a disorder of the stomach that is characterized by pain in the upper part of the stomach. It is not a single disorder but a collection of symptoms such as nausea, burping and bloating. It results when the acid of the stomach comes in contact with the mucosa of the digestive tract.

These acids cause a breakdown of the mucosa leading to inflammation and irritation which leads to indigestion. It may also result from eating disorders or certain medications.

Symptoms
The symptoms of this disorder tend to occur mostly after consuming food and drink. In some cases, the symptoms tend to go away after eating or drinking. The symptoms of dyspepsia are -
1. You may feel bloated on a regular basis
2. You may experience discomfort in your stomach
3. Loss of appetite
4. You may experience constant burping
5. You may feel nauseous
6. Symptoms of heartburn
7. You may also experience chest pain and breathing difficulties
8. You may be affected by jaundice


Causes
The various causes of dyspepsia are -
1. Irritable bowel syndrome which hampers the movement of food through the intestines
2. If you are unable to properly digest dairy products
3. Gastroesophageal reflux disease that results in reflux of the acids of the stomach
4. Any inflammation of the gall bladder
5. Various medicines such as aspirin, steroids and antibiotics may lead to dyspepsia
6. If you suffer from depression or anxiety then it may lead to dyspepsia
7. Excess consumption of chocolate, coffee and alcohol

Dyspepsia may be controlled by modifying your lifestyle. Some of the changes that you may make are -
1. Don't sleep immediately after eating, wait for at least two hours before you go to bed
2. Avoid spicy foods as they tend to aggravate symptoms of dyspepsia
3. Space out your meals, eat multiple smaller meals instead of few large ones
4. Restrict smoking and alcohol consumption
5. Lose weight as being overweight may lead to dyspepsia
6. Avoid wearing tight clothes 
7. Exercise on a regular basis to keep your body healthy and maintain optimal weight levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.

Health Benefits of White Fruits & Vegetables

Health Benefits of White Fruits & Vegetables
We always fear about white poisons. But, not every whites are poison. Here are some properties of 6 power packed white fruits and vegetables that we eat regularly.

1. Pears - The fruit contains antioxidants like vitamin c along with copper. It is known to be a hypoallergenic food. They have a good amount of pectin which is a fiber that is soluble in water and the content in pears is even higher than it is in apples. Pears are said to help in losing weight, reducing hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, etc.
2. Potatoes - They help steady the blood pressure and are full of vitamin b6, potassium and iron.
3. Ginger - It is known to relieve heartburn and kills colon & ovarian cancer cells. Ginger can be used in fresh, dried, powdered, juiced forms or in the oil. Commonly used to cure stomach problems, it also helps when you have a loss of appetite.
4. Onions - They have chromium which helps control blood sugar. Onions are also known to have an effect on sleep and mood. They have vitamin c which builds and maintains collagen that provides structure to hair and skin.
5. Apples - Quercetin in apples makes them anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory agents. You get whiter, healthier teeth by biting and chewing an apple. Drinking apple juice is believed to keep alzheimer's away, a study has shown.
6. Bananas - Tryptophan in bananas help regulate mood, stay relaxed and feel happy. Bananas are also good for hair, skin and stomach. Also, for digestion and libido.

When it is ok to start relationship with husband After having a long labour with tear in uterus body and vaginal cut.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user. I understand. You could understand that there is a deep tear inside your uterus and you had a vaginal cut. These wounds needs to be healed before you can have sexual intercourse with your husband. Usually, because you are nursing your child, it takes around two months for these wounds to completely heal. I suggest you have have sexual intercourse after 3 months of delivery. but only after having consent from your gynecologist. Take care.

I would suggest have intercourse mid-cycle which is from 10 days after your wife's periods starts for another 8-9 days to help getting pregnant.(This is useful provided your wife has regular 28-30 days cycle) Also start taking Folic acid supplements if not already started. If after another 3-4 months of trying your wife still fails to conceive then it is important to get her fallopian tubes checked and your semen analysis done.

Healthy Food in Hindi - जानिए स्वस्थ आहार के फायदे?

एक स्वस्थ आहार का पालन करना मुश्किल लग सकता है, लेकिन यह एक स्वस्थ जीवन बिताने के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है। शारीरिक गतिविधि के साथ पौष्टिक और अच्छी तरह से संतुलित भोजन अच्छे स्वास्थ्य की नींव है। स्वस्थ भोजन में उच्च गुणवत्ता वाली प्रोटीन, कार्बोहाइड्रेट, हृदय- स्वस्थ वसा, विटामिन, खनिज और पानी शामिल होते हैं। एक स्वस्थ भोजन न केवल अच्छे स्वास्थ्य को बनाए रखने में मदद कर सकता है, बल्कि वजन बनाए रखने, थकान को कम करने, रोगों से दूर रहने और लंबे समय तक जीवित रहने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा, आपके खाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थों में पोषक तत्व आपके दैनिक जीवन की गतिविधियों का समर्थन करते हैं, अपने कोशिकाओं को पर्यावरणीय क्षति से बचाते हैं, और किसी भी सेलुलर नुकसान की मरम्मत करते हैं।

Awesome Benefits Of Matcha Green Tea (An Upcoming Sensation)

Awesome Benefits Of Matcha Green Tea (An Upcoming Sensation)

What is matcha green tea?

Matcha green tea is a premium green tea from japan. Since hundreds of years the zen used matcha green tea to help in meditation as it helps in calming the mind. Matcha is shade harvested, steamed, air dried, destemmed and hand pounded green tea. There are no artificial colours or preservatives added. It is sugar free and gluten free thus can be consumed by most of the people around the world. Stone grinding retains matcha’s peculiar taste.

Benefits of matcha green tea powder –

Benefits of matcha green tea are more prevalent than general green tea. Matcha tea is powdered and mixed with water unlike other green teas which are just dipped in water and removed. Consuming powdered leaves helps in more availability of the antioxidants present. Hence matcha green tea benefits more than the general green tea.

Matcha is an antioxidant storehouse:

It contains 137 times more poly phenol than regular green tea. Epigallocatechin gallate (egcg) is the major poly phenol present. Egcg is believed to burn the fat stores in the body for energy. It also increases the body’s immunity towards the diseases. Studies show high antioxidant levels in matcha helps in fighting cancer. Ecgc also detoxifies the body and removes all the unwanted waste materials from the system. This improves the skin texture and health. Read – sources of antioxidants 

Matcha is a mind relaxant:

The amino acid l- theanine present in matcha relaxes the brain activity. It helps in sharpening the alertness and concentrating ability of an individual. This was mainly why the zen used matcha for meditation. L theanine also helps in enhancing the mood. L theanine along with chlorophyll imparts distinct taste and creamy texture to the product.

Matcha helps in weight loss:

Benefits of flax seeds on weight loss:

Matcha increases the body’s thermogenesis by 20 -25 % than normal. Increased thermogenesis raises the body’s metabolism. This burns the body fat and reduces the weight. Stone pounding of matcha green tea retains the fiber in the tea. High fiber content as we all know is beneficial in weight loss.

Matcha reduces blood cholesterol:

A study in american journal of clinical nutrition, says that matcha helps in reducing the ldl cholesterol and lowers blood pressure. The high antioxidant property also plays a vital role in enhancing heart functioning. Read – how to reduce triglycerides 

Matcha controls blood sugar:

Benefits of bitter gourd on diabetes:

The high fibre content maintains the blood sugar levels. The chromium present in the tea aids the insulin activity in the body. Matcha tea is sugar free and hence allows diabetics to consume it without worrying about the increased sugar.

How to select the best quality matcha green tea?

Now that you know about the benefits of matcha green tea powder on health, you would want to buy this immediately. Each and every individual has a different taste. Some prefer a neutral light taste, some prefer sweet or some prefer strong taste in green tea. Selecting matcha becomes very easy if we know our taste buds. The light colour green tea is more on sweeter side whereas the darker ones taste more astringent and strong.

Your selection of matcha green tea will also depend upon how you want to take it. Different recipes require different types of matcha green tea. Kitchens and cafes use the lighter green tea. Baking requires the stronger matcha green tea, as it is more stable in high temperatures. With baking, the taste of matcha green tea powder becomes very subtle. So, use a stronger green tea for baked products like cakes, muffins, cupcakes, macarons etc.

Where can I buy matcha green tea in india?

This questions seems to be breaking all google search records lately. Well, you can buy matcha green tea online on amazon. Unlike other green teas, matcha is actually been used in baking cakes and macarons. Matcha is also used in making smoothies and latte. If you like the cold pressed juices, you can also order your “lights “from raw pressery.

Where and how can I use matcha green tea?

You can use matcha green tea powder in various sweet and savoury preparations. Matcha compliments and enhances the taste of lattes, macaroni, smoothies, cakes, icing, milkshakes or soups.

Did you know? 

Traditionally japan uses matcha as usucha or koicha tea. Usucha is a thin consistency tea made of second best quality of matcha green tea. We just have to sift the tea powder in a bowl, add hot water and whisk till tea becomes frothy.

Whereas, koichais thick consistency liquid. It is made by adding half the amount of water to double the amount of highest quality powder. Generally, cafes serve koicha tea.
