A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. Eat more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables like carrot, cucumber, sprouts, and switching your cereal breakfast to bran. Water is the best drink, so increase water consumption. Take 2-3 litres per day And avoid caffeine. Taking fibrous diet will reduce the incidence and severity of constipation. Include ¼ Papaya in your diet daily. Drink warm milk at night continue to do yoga take early morning luke warm water with honey and lemon homeopathic treatment should be started if above changes in diet plan doesn't gives relief. For more advice, and homeopathic treatment, consult me.

Incredible Pineapple Benefits

Incredible Pineapple Benefits

Health benefits of pineapple

1. An anti-inflammatory agent

Pineapple hails from the bromeliaceae family, after which one of its most important health promoting compounds, the enzyme bromelain, was named. The complex mixture of its substances can act as a pain reliever, blood thinner and anti-coagulant, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent. Long story in short, it is nature's aspirin.

2. Cure for constipation

This miraculous fruit aids in the natural digestion process. The high quantity of fiber helps in the formation of stool and its quick movement though the tract, while the enzyme bromelain is known to help in the breakdown of protein. Pineapple juice, in particular, serves as a great laxative that cures constipation.

3. Helps in burning fat

even though it contains sugar (extremely beneficial for growing kids), the amount is not so overwhelming. Plus, the amount of fat is negligible as well, making it a go-to-snack for the ones trying to shed kilos. The soluble fiber content contributes to a delayed digestive process, which helps to control hunger pangs and indirectly accounts for a boost in metabolism and calorie burn" says bangalore-based nutritionist. Dr. Anju sood.

4.Good for the eyes

Pineapple is a rich source of vitamin c, anti-oxidants and minerals like manganese and potassium. It helps fight against cell damage and reduces the risk of macular degeneration, an eye disease that affects older people. It is also a good source of beta carotene, essential for eye health.

5. Regulates blood pressure and hypertension

Medical studies have established that a cup of pineapple contains (low amount) 1 mg of sodium and (high amount) 195 mg of potassium, which is vital for bringing down the blood pressure to a state of normalcy. Potassium is an essential mineral which helps in regulating blood pressure in the body.

6. Counters infertility

If you are a woman struggling to conceive, pineapple can help. The presence of a considerable amount of folic acid makes this possible.

7. Vitamin powerhouse

Pineapples pack a tremendous nutritional punch, containing vitamins a, c, e, and k, minerals like potassium and calcium, electrolytes and phyto-nutrients like carotene. They are a rich source of anti-oxidants, which fight against free radicals in the body, preventing cell damage. These anti-oxidants can protect you from diseases like atherosclerosis, heart diseases, arthritis and various cancers. Vitamin a and vitamin c are a boon for the skin as well" we usually recommend two servings of any fruit a day, and pineapple can certainly be one of them on a daily basis. 100 gm of the fruit is sufficient, provided it is consumed during the first half of the day" adds Dr. Sood

Greetings, Im suffering from severe constipation from the last 4 months. I have used all sugar alcohols like sorbitol, xylitol, lactitol monohydrate, milk of magnesia but nothing works. I'm taking 30-35 grams of fiber and 2-3 liters of water bit only thing I get is bloating and uncomfort. The only thing that works is dulcolax or bisacotydl tablets but it's habit forming so I don't take it regularly but have to take it in 2-3 days interval to clean my intestine. I feel frustrated. Please I would appreciate some help and as a side note I have diabetes so I would like some sugar free recommendation. Tablets rather than syrup is highly appreciated or any other tips that will work. Thank you doc in advance. Have a good day.

Whole Milk Vs Fat Free Milk - Which is Better?

Whole Milk Vs Fat Free Milk - Which is Better?

Recent developments have shown that fat might not be as harmful as people originally thought it was. Fats can prove to be beneficial too. It is capable of providing the feeling of fullness as well as helps in absorbing vitamins that are fat-soluble. A recent publication of a review in the European Journal of Nutrition regarding the existing research on milk fat came to conclusion that were quite surprising. People who consume full fat or whole milk are on equal terms with people who consumed fat free milk, as far as development of type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease is concerned. However, as far as weight loss is concerned, whole i.e. full fat milk should be preferred over fat-free milk.

Various surveys have reported that a majority of the people who consume whole milk exhibit less weight gain, lower body weights as well as low risks of obesity. The argument that excess calories are beneficial for the waistline is a topic that is prevalent even today. According to some researchers as far as weight gain is concerned, all calories are not equal. Additionally, if the focus is solely on the number of calories per serving, then a huge factor leading to obesity is ignored.

This factor is called fullness. Dr. Mario Kratz, author of the aforementioned review and a designated nutrition scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, states that the removal of fatty acids from skimmed milk results in a delayed feeling of fullness as well as staying full. He also states that the fatty acids in milk affect hormone regulation and gene expression. In simpler words, these acids might crank up the amount of energy burned by the body as well as limit the storage of fat in the body.

All these findings help in showing that consumption of whole milk is more preferable to low fat, as far as the risk of obesity is concerned. However, it does not mean that people should engage in consuming only whole milk and 'use butter in all the recipes'. However, as far as the comparison between skim i.e. fat free milk and whole milk is concerned, the available research argues and suggests that full-fat milk is the way to go. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you do not have diabetes and still want to avoid sugar as part of keeping free from extra sugar, it is better to avoid even the sugar free tabs. Those are not really safe. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to prevent diabetes one has to adapt a modified lifestyle. Which means maintain near normal weight, exercise daily for 1 hour or more, take restricted diet giving exact calories based on ideal body weight. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing products, high fat milk products and highly processed products. Sugarless tablet alone are not much of help.
