What is Healthy Diet???

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Very often in my schedule, a question similar to this one comes up- What food is good for my teeth?? Can I eat chocolates, Ice-creams, Cakes etc without damaging my teeth?? What makes a healthy food??

So let us discuss these questions one by one in the coming posts, starting from the question- 'What is healthy food?'

We are what we eat. Thus having a healthy diet will render us healthy. Healthy food is one that includes the following major food groups in your everyday meal:

- Fruits and Vegetables;
- Bread and Cereals;
- Milk and Dairy Products;
- Meat, Fish, and Eggs.

There should be adequate amount and proportion of all these food groups in our diet. Our diet should include nutrients adequately met for maintaining health, vitality and general well being and also makes provision for a short duration of leanness.

Food pyramid gives us a pictorial representation of food groups that should be included in Balanced Diet or Healthy Diet. This new food pyramid also includes exercises to emphasize its importance.

So now make sure you include all food groups in proper proportions and enjoy a new yourself from healthy food habits.

Hi. I've been suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for the last 11 months and. I was diagnosed about this an year back and I've been put on fluoxetine (Prodep or Prozac). But I'm not feeling that great on the medication and I've put on nearly 7-8 of weight and I don't feeling like doing on the medication. I came across Ayurvedic herbs like Ashwagandha and Brahmi for OCD. I wanted to know about dosage of Brahmi and Ashwagandha for OCD and as well as if they're affective as the current medication. Kindly help.

MBBS, DPM

Dear lybrate-user, You should address your question to an Ayurveda doctor. Otherwise because of the word 'OCD' it comes to me, a psychiatrist. Our way of OCD management is to prescribe Fluoxetine kind of medication at higher dose for many months, may be years. These medicines do not cause weight gain. Check out other causes of weight gain in your case. We may add a psychotherapy to it, if necessary. I may take you up for cognitive therapy at your thinking level, with ERP (exposure and response prevention). I have no knowledge about Brahmi and Ashwagandha.

High Blood Pressure: Does It Lead To Diabetes?

MBBS, MD, FAIIDR
Diabetologist, Vadodara
High Blood Pressure: Does It Lead To Diabetes?

What is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition caused when the force of the blood against the arterial walls exceeds drastically than what it normally is. A blood pressure reading exceeding 140/90 over a prolonged period of time is considered to be ‘high blood pressure’ or diagnosed as ‘hypertension’.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is characterized by extremely high levels of blood glucose (blood sugar) in the body, either due to the insufficient secretion of insulin by the pancreas or reduced sensitivity of the body to insulin. This makes your body unable to break down the sugars. At first glance, these two conditions seem completely unrelated, but, according to certain studies, the two conditions do have similar outcomes and could be inter-dependent.

The Connect-

According to the American Diabetes Association, the combination of hypertension and type 2 diabetes is particularly lethal and can significantly raise a person's risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Having type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure also increases your chances of developing other diabetes-related diseases, such as kidney disease, and retinopathy (eye blood vessels), which may cause blindness. There is substantial overlap between diabetes and hypertension, reflecting substantial overlap in their etiology and disease mechanisms. Genetic structure, Obesity, inflammation, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance are thought to be the common pathways. A prospective cohort study in the United States reported that type 2 diabetes mellitus was almost 2.5 times as likely to develop in subjects with hypertension as in subjects with normal blood pressure.

In the Hong Kong Cardiovascular Risk Factor Prevalence Study, only 42% of people with diabetes had normal blood pressure and only 56% of people with hypertension had normal glucose tolerance. There are many minor lifestyle changes that can lower your blood pressure and blood sugar. A brisk walk for 30 to 40 minutes every day, or any aerobic activity can make your heart healthier. In addition to lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, physical activity can strengthen the heart muscle and may reduce arterial stiffness. You may need minor modifications in your diet like, cutting out sugar salt, high-fat meats etc. You can take several servings of vegetables, low-fat dairy products, leans meats and fish or meat substitutes, fruits, whole (not processed) foods, whole-grain pastas, breads, and brown rice etc. While some people can improve their type 2 diabetes and hypertension with lifestyle changes, most require medication.

Depending on their overall health, some people may need more than one medication to reduce their risk. Consult your doctor to choose best possible medicines for your diabetes and / or blood pressure control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Hi Sumesh, your premature graying may be due to Vitamin / mineral deficiency or genetic but certainly not because of masturbation. Masturbation does not cause you any harm. Take nutritious food and stop worrying (Worry is another cause of graying). You may use some good ayurvedic hair oils to reduce graying.
