Five Food Items For A Healthier Brain!

While many of us may associate healthy food with a healthy body, it is also true that healthy food can support a healthy brain. As we start to grow old, there is something known as oxidative damage which can lead to memory impairment and general brain decline. A healthy brain is one where the brain function is at an appropriate level and the ageing process has been pushed back in terms of stellar memory and information processing. According to Ayurveda and other arms of medical science, there are a number of super food items that can help in this process. Here is a list of five food items that can lead to a healthier brain.

  1. Brahmi: This is one of the most commonly used Ayurvedic herbs. It can be used for many ailments and it is also prescribed as a brain tonic for stronger memory. Besides making the memory clear and sharp, this ingredient can improve the brain’s grasping power and the mental capacity of the brain. It is also an excellent anti-anxiety agent, as per Ayurvedic science.
  2. Ginkgo Biloba: This herb promotes better blood circulation in the brain, which helps in improving the overall brain function. It is also a memory enhancer. This herb is used by Ayurvedic doctors for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and Amnesia. It is a good medicine that can repair the damaged cells of the brain.
  3. Ashwagandha: This is also known as an Ayurvedic wonder herb. This herb contains many beneficial properties for the brain and the rest of the body. When it comes to the brain and its functioning, Ashwagandha is ideal for patients who are suffering from severe stress. Besides being a stress reliever, this herb can also be used to keep the brain in a calm state for better performance. It helps in improving the functioning of the brain and its complex nerves. This herb is also a good memory enhancer.
  4. Gotu Kola: Gotu Kola is a well-known Ayurvedic herb that can be used for protecting the nerves from damage. It protects the brain cells as well. Also, it enhances the capacity of the brain and leads to improved performance thanks to the many vital elements that it carries.
  5. Mulethi: This is a stress relieving herb used by Ayurvedic doctors. It improves the blood circulation in the nervous system, which gives rise to better brain function. This is a very good herb for children and students, as it is a memory booster which helps them in retaining and retrieving information. It is also a stress relieving medicine that can be used to keep the brain calm and cool even in the most challenging situation.

Adding the above discussed products to your daily diet can help you achieve your fitness goals in terms of body and brain.

 Salt - How To Intake The Optimum Amount Of It?

What are salt and sodium?

Salt is made of sodium (40% by weight) and chloride (60% by weight). Sodium is a crucial electrolyte in the body. Sodium is an essential nutrient necessary for the maintenance of plasma volume and blood pressure, acid-base balance, transmission of nerve impulses and normal cell function.

Different types of salt?

  • Table salt or common salt
  • Sea salt
  • Himalayan rock salt (sendha namak and black salt)

The primary advantages of various types of salts other than common salt are having trace minerals (in very small amounts) and lack of processing and additives.

How to intake salt normally?

WHO recommends that adults consume less than 5 g (just under a teaspoon) of salt per day. This goes around 2300mg of sodium per day. But, most Indian people consume too much salt - on average 9-12 grams per day.

What are the health hazards of high salt intake?

How high intake of sodium cause kidney disease?

High salt intake is associated with kidney disease by these mechanisms: Causing hypertension, vascular injury and proteinuria.

Food containing high salts?

Fast food, preserved and packaged food items like:

  • Pickles
  • Anchovies
  • Soups
  • Bread products
  • Prawns
  • Salted and dry-roasted nuts
  • Salt fish
  • Smoked meat and fish
  • Soy sauce
  • Stock cubes

Conditions where low salt is beneficial.

Hypertension, Heart Failure, Kidney disease, Nephrotic syndrome, Kidney stones and Patient on diuretics or ACEi or ARB.

How to reduce sodium (salt) intake?

  • Not adding salt during the preparation of food
  • Not having a salt shaker on the table
  • Limiting the consumption of salty snacks
  • Choosing products with lower sodium content
  • Removing salt from recipes whenever possible
  • Using salt substitutes wisely
  • Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy
  • Using onions, garlic, herbs, spices, citrus juices and vinegar in place of some or all of the salt to add flavour
  • Draining and rinsing canned beans (like chickpeas, kidney beans, etc.) and vegetables
  • Combining lower-sodium versions of food with regular versions. This will not differ much in taste. This works especially well for broths, soups and tomato-based pasta sauces.
  • Cooking pasta, rice and hot cereal without salt
  • Cooking by grilling, braising, roasting, searing and sautéing to bring out natural flavours. This will reduce the need to add salt.
  • Incorporating foods with potassium like sweet potatoes, potatoes, greens and tomatoes

Why Are Children More Susceptible To Pollution?

Why Are Children More Susceptible To Pollution?

The term pollution means the introduction of harmful and unwanted contaminants into our environment. Due to the borderless nature of our atmosphere and oceans, contamination at a small level can have a huge impact that to in places which are nearby and one of the best examples of this is crop stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana which is a major contributor to Delhi smog. Pollution is a slow poison and is deleterious to the life of all beings, including plants, animals, and humans. With the rise in the pollution levels, no one can escape the harmful effects of the same on health. Though pollution poses a great threat to everyone, it is the children who are most affected, let us read on to know the reasons

Why are children more susceptible to pollution?

  • The lung function, immune system, and metabolic systems in children are not fully developed and functional which makes it difficult for the body to fight these pollutants.
  • Children breathe in more air per kilogram of their body weight than adults, so they take in more pollutants per breath.
  • Children are not only more active but also have a faster breathing rate than that of adults. This means that they take in more environmental toxins and at a much faster rate.

Understanding the effects of pollution on children’s health

  • Exposure of pregnant women to polluted air is strongly associated with premature birth, low birth weight, and intrauterine growth retardation. Low birth weight babies and premature infants are more prone to developmental delays and other disorders.
  • Exposure to certain pollutants like carbon monoxide and ozone are linked with septal and valvular defects in the heart of a child.
  • There is a strong association between particulate pollution and symptoms like wheezing and bronchitis in both adults and children. This is the main reason why there is an increased prevalence of Asthma in children in urban areas. Research has shown that a high level of pollutants in air cause deficits in lung function growth.
  • The immune system which protects the body from infections and germs is not fully developed in children. Pollutants are known to cause suppression of immunity in small children making them more prone to infections.
  • Children need sufficient Vitamin D for strong and healthy bones. Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin and is synthesized in the body on exposure to UVB rays of the sun. Increased particulate components in the air reduce the amount of UVB radiation reaching the ground level. More than 60% of children are Vitamin D deficient and require supplements orally.
  • The exhaust of gasoline and diesel is known to emit carcinogens which are thought to play a role in the development of leukemia (blood cancer) in children.
  • The nervous system is a target for many environmental pollutants. Exposure to these pollutants can lead to neurological deficits and delays in development. Some of these effects are irreversible and long-lasting.

Unfortunately, with urbanization and increased population, the levels of particulate pollutants in the air are increasing at an alarming rate. The problem of pollution needs to be addressed immediately, until then it is best to keep the children indoor and take necessary precautions and keep children safe from exposure to the pollutants.

Yes. Your thyroid report is within normal limits. So it should be okay to continue the currently running dose. Provided you don't have any other health issues. But remember it's always best to use medication under your consultant guidance.

I am having schizophrenia. I am taking sizopin 25. It is good to have or not. My age is 29. And I am taking this tablet every night.

You need to have this medication. I am also of the opinion that you will need counseling alongside the medication to help you cope with the nuances of the disease. You need to exercise regularly, be active, put yourself into a tight schedule of interesting and productive activities, attend to work, take some family responsibilities at home, and do some regular chores like marketing, cleaning, gardening, etc. Socializing is very important and you must make a willful effort to concentrate when people are talking. A professional will guide you through all this.

Dengue - Know The Ways To Prevent It!

Dengue - Know The Ways To Prevent It!

The monsoons cool the air down and perfume the air but also provide the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes. A mosquito bite is universally abhorred. A sting that turns into dengue is even more disliked. Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease that causes high fever, rashes and pain in joints and muscles. Since there is no vaccine that can completely eradicate dengue, it becomes important to take preventive measures to reduce mosquitoes and keep the disease at bay.

Here are a few tips that can reduce your risk of being bitten by mosquitoes: 

  1. Do not allow water to accumulate: Mosquitoes breed in standing water. To prevent this do not allow rainwater to collect in pots or stagnate in your garden. Ensure that your water tanks are kept covered always. Keep buckets turned over when not in use. Coolers are generally ineffective in the monsoons so empty them out and keep the trays dry. It is also a good idea to empty and dry swimming pools and ornamental fountains during the monsoons.
  2. Use mosquito repellant: Dengue mosquitoes typically bite a person during the day. Hence, make it a habit to put on a mosquito repellant along with your sunscreen every time you step out. Mosquito repellants should be used on all the exposed areas of your skin including your ears. Using a mosquito net around your bed at night is the best way to ensure safety against mosquitoes. You could also attach mosquito repellant patches on your infant's clothes.
  3. Do not allow mosquitoes indoors: Install mesh shutters on your doors and windows. This will allow air in but will keep mosquitoes out. Take a close look at your doors and windows for holes through which mosquitoes could come in. Also, look at their joints and edges to ensure that there are no gaps. Burning camphor and lavender or tea tree aromatics can also help keep mosquitoes away.
  4. Grow mosquito repellant plants: Citronella and tulsi are two plants that are well known for their mosquito repelling properties. Grow these plants near your window and the entrance of your house to naturally repel mosquitoes.
  5. Avoid outdoor activities at dawn and dusk: Sunrise and sunset are when mosquitoes are most active. Hence avoid being outdoors at this time. If you must be out, wear protective clothes that minimize the amount of skin exposed. Wearing light colors instead of dark colors can also help as mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors.

I have a question regarding my skin, every time when I scratch my body or in some cases when I put pressure on my body .it leaves marks and it looks very deadly .dark red, thick marks everywhere near that area. Mostly it happens with a urge of itching and as soon as I start itching it leaves marks. I feel little warm where ever those marks appear and I get it because of fiction I suppose .but the thing is these marks appear and disappear very rapidly like in 5 minutes I get those marks and same time for disappearing. My question is why these deadly looking marks/rashes appear because it doesn't look normal and secondly why it itches so much .in summer I thought it's happening because of sweat but it's still happening in winter. It isn't painful but I don't want anyone to get scared to even touch me (yeah it happened when on of my friend holds my hand very tightly and she said she is afraid to touch me)

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi  •  37 yrs exp
How To Choose A Good Diet Doctor For Weight Loss Plans?

For losing weight fast, it is necessary to have a diet plan – and a good diet doctor should make the diet chart. Here are some of the tips that can be followed while choosing a good diet doctor.

  • Necessary educational qualifications

The person should have all the academic qualifications that are required to become a diet doctor. You should not consult an unregistered doctor, as improper medication may create a negative impact on the body.

  • Compassion

A diet doctor has to be compassionate. Many patients struggle emotionally for years due to weight issues. Some of them have serious health problems. Therefore, it is important that the doctor listen to all the difficulties of the patient carefully and empathize with it.

  • Organizational skills

A dietician should be organized. He/she should keep a record of the patient’s medical history, allergies, previous diet plans, etc.

  • Mathematical skills

They have to check calorie counts, percentage of fats regularly so they should have knowledge of numbers.

  • Communicative skills

A dietician should be friendly by nature. He/she should have the ability to communicate everything clearly to the patients.

  • Patience

A patient may find it difficult to eat the same food every day. Some of them get allergic to many food items. Some of them may not follow the instructions properly. Therefore, it may happen that the doctor has to change the diet plan frequently. The doctor should have the patience to deal with these situations.

  • Availability

A good diet doctor is the one who always responds to the patients. You should make an appointment with a doctor who will be available for you if any emergency occurs.

  • Healthy lifestyle

A diet doctor should have good health so that patients are inspired by it.

  • A proper diet plan

To lose weight effectively, it is very important to have a proper diet plan. A balanced diet is one that contains an adequate amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fat. However, not every person can follow the same diet chart. It is the responsibility of the dietician to prepare a plan according to the height, weight, and age of the person. He/she also has to keep a track of the past health issues of the patients. Therefore, one should go to a diet doctor who is knowledgeable and experienced.

If you follow these advises, then you can easily get a good diet doctor.
