Getting Enough Calcium On A Dairy Free Diet!

Getting Enough Calcium On A Dairy Free Diet!

A dairy-free diet has many implications. While it is considered as a healthy option by many, it also means that you are cutting off your supply of calcium and even some amount of protein. Calcium, as we all know, is the life-giving force for the bones and joints, so it is important to include it in our daily diet. How can you get your dose of calcium without dairy products?

Here's a quick list! 

  • Beans: Get your fill of calcium with the protein and calcium-rich chickpea. Other brown, black and white beans also have plenty of natural calcium sealed in each bean, which can be ingested on a daily basis. Legumes or smaller beans can also be used for your daily calcium fix. You can cook the legumes like an Indian dal and have it with a serving of rice, or make a yummy hummus with plenty of chickpeas and a touch of garlic. Toss beans soaked overnight in a salad bowl to enjoy calcium for lunch too!
  • Fish: Salmon and sardines are known to be excellent and healthy sources of lean protein as well as Omega 3 fatty acids, which keeps the heart healthy above all else. But did you also know that fish contains plenty of natural calcium which can help your bones and joints too? So stock up on fish and enjoy as often as you can. Plus, salmon and sardines also give you a good dose of Vitamin D.
  • Dry Fruits: Dry fruits like figs and almonds are packed with calcium among various other nutrients and minerals which makes it ideal for a snack as well. Munch on these to get a constant dose of calcium even when you are on the go, or busy at work.
  • Greens vegetables: If you thought green vegetables were only a good source of iron and magnesium, you may have to think again. Greens like bok choy (Chinese white cabbage) are filled with essential nutrients including a good amount of calcium, Vitamin A and C. Kale, turnip greens, seaweed and black-eyed peas also make it to the list of calcium-rich greens. 
  • Citrus Fruits: Get plenty of calcium by starting your day with a glass of orange juice, blended to perfection with carrots as well. Use lemons in your salad and eat all the citrus fruits you can get your hands on. These are all excellent sources of calcium. 
  • Sesame Seeds: These seeds are rich in calcium and can also keep cancer at bay when taken regularly.
  • Foxnuts (Makhane): Foxnuts are rich in protein and calcium. Roasted foxnuts are a great snack also.

Pack your diet with all the food groups for a balanced diet that will lead to a healthy lifestyle.

Dandruff - 5 Myths Busted!

Dandruff - 5 Myths Busted!

Dandruff is one of the most common chronic hair conditions. It is characterized by a white, flaky substance on the scalp. Dandruff is not a serious condition and neither is it contagious. However, people still want it gone so that their hair looks better.

Following are the misleading conceptions about Dandruff :

Myth 1: Dandruff results from bad hygiene? Fact: While regular shampooing can help keep dandruff under control, this condition does not stem from a lack of hygiene as even the most diligent hair washers can find themselves suffering from it. This is because dandruff is caused by various components, which include a characteristic overproduction of hair oil or an excess of parasitic microorganisms that live normally on our scalps.

Myth 2: Dandruff only occurs on the scalp? Fact: It's true that your scalp is the most widely recognised spot to experience dandruff, yet it's by all account is not the only possibility. A few individuals additionally observe that areas such as the eyebrows, ears, and around the nose are inclined to flaking too.

Myth 3: All flakes in your hair is dandruff? Fact: Sometimes flakes are only a consequence of dry skin on your scalp. While the difference between dryness and dandruff might be unclear to the common individual, medical experts do make a distinction between the two. If your flakes are relatively small and white, chances are you are dealing with a dry scalp - dandruff flakes tend to be larger and yellowish in colour.

Myth 4: Dandruff is contagious? Fact: Dandruff is not something that you can catch from someone else. The fungal bacteria that can lead to the appearance of dandruff are present on everybody?s scalp, which means all our scalps are naturally predisposed to the condition.

Myth 5: Dandruff can cause hair fall? Fact: Hair fall is at some point connected with dandruff and an irritated scalp; however, these conditions are not mutually exclusive. Hair fall is not brought about by dandruff, but rather might be prompted by the incessant need to scratch a bothersome scalp. When we scratch our heads, the activity causes breakage in the hair. The root cause of hair fall includes anxiety, diet and the overall health of your scalp.

Reasons Why Healthy Mental State Is Important!

Reasons Why Healthy Mental State Is Important!

The first question when you greet somebody is 'How are you?' and this often refers to our state of well-being. While most answers would be great, awesome or good, we usually think of how we are doing physically. Some of us may talk about physical conditions (say things like feverish, have a cold, etc.), not many would think of talking about mental health conditions. However, mental health is very important for overall well-being.

Can you think of someone who is severely depressed or anxious all the time and have good physical health? Chances are very bleak, and if you consider the overall health as a mix of mental and physical balance, this is not possible. Read on to understand how important mental health is and why you should start paying more attention to it. 

  1. Improved physical health: If someone is in a stressed state, it is obvious that they would not be able to do the activities they enjoy. Being affected mentally also leads to reduced immunity and sleep disturbances, making the person prone to infections and other disorders. Stress is one of the main risk factors for chronic medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes. However, if a person’s mental health is taken care off then their physical health responds quite apt.
  2. Improved prognosis: Most often, doctors focus on treating the physical aspects of a person’s health. However, with the recent emphasis on mental health, more and more doctors are looking at wholesome measures to improve a person’s health. Results show that when a person’s mental health is also addressed, the physical ailments respond very well.
  3. Improved productivity: People with unattended mental health disorders often resort to absence from work and/or school, can have financial instability, be homeless and can fall repeatedly. Being mentally healthy provides the overall changed perspective of life and therefore improves productivity.
  4. Improved personal relationships: Children of people affected with mental illness are prone to neglect, abuse, rejection, and behavioural issues. There is also social isolation, which may lead to adulthood, and these children may also have emotional health problems. Others in the close circle including spouses, siblings, parents, close friends and colleagues would be clearly affected by a person who is mentally unhealthy. Whereas a healthy mind responds positively in most situation. 
  5. Social effects: These people are highly prone to social crimes like rape, murder, theft, violence, etc. They may not be able to afford their treatment and/or resort to these crimes to assert themselves.
  6. Improved quality of life: Life expectancy is higher in people who are mentally healthy. Even with mild symptoms of anxiety and depression, this is reduced, and the chances of a happier, healthier life are reduced.

Whatever the effect, mental health needs to be addressed as equally as we do physical problems, using medications, counselling, or lifestyle changes.

Hi, If you are taking krimson regularly, no need for emergency pill. But if you have missed few doses then efficacy of krimson will reduce. As you have taken ipill 72 then hormonal imbalance can occur if no preg. But if you are overdue for more than 1 week, get preg test done and can contact me if any problem occurs.

Fish oil for dialysis patients

Fish oil for dialysis patients

A study in Kidney International 2013 has shown that kidney patients on dialysis with the highest levels of n–3 fatty acids have impressively low odds of sudden cardiac death, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal President Heart Care Foundation of India and Dr Ramesh Hotchandani President IMA New Delhi Branch. 

Dialysis patients have dramatically low survival rates, between 35 and 45% at 5 years. Heart disease is responsible for 43% of deaths in this setting, and sudden cardiac death has now emerged as the leading single cause of mortality, accounting for approximately 25% of deaths. 

Sudden death is defined as an unexpected ‘natural’ death within a very short time period in a person without any prior condition that would appear fatal. 

Eighty percent of sudden deaths may be due to ventricular fibrillation. 

A variety of kidney– and dialysis–specific factors favor the occurrence of this complication, including left ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, volume overload, myocardial fibrosis, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, QT dispersion, QT–prolonging medication, sympathetic overactivity/autonomic nerve dysfunction and electrolyte and volume shifts during hemodialysis sessions. 

Successful preventive strategies applied in the general population, such as the use of β–blockers, angiotensin–converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, statins and implantable cardioverter–defibrillators do not appear to offer benefit in dialysis patients.

Long–chain n–3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids commonly found in marine and plant oils. They have beneficial effects on major cardiovascular outcomes, including sudden death, due to antiatherogenic, anti–inflammatory, antithrombotic, antihypertensive and triglyceride–lowering effects. 

Three major n–3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are found in fatty fish (salmon, bluefish, mackerel, arctic char, sardines, and swordfish), and alpha–linolenic acid (ALA), found in specific vegetable oils (soybean, rapeseed, and flaxseed), walnuts, and some green vegetables (brussels sprouts, kale, spinach and salad greens). 

The new recommendation is that dialysis patients should be supplemented with n–3 fatty acids.

About HCFI: The only National Not for profit NGO, on whose mega community health education events, Govt. of India has released two National commemorative stamps and one cancellation stamp, and who has conducted one to one training on" Hands only CPR" of 59455 people since 1st November 2012. 

The CPR 10 Mantra is – "within 10 minutes of death, earlier the better; at least for the next 10 minutes, longer the better; compress the centre of the chest of the dead person continuously and effectively with a speed of 10×10 i.e. 100 per minute."

Brow Lifts - Know Everything About It!

Brow Lifts - Know Everything About It!

A Brow Lift, also called a Forehead Lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that corrects flaws in the skin above the eyes. It flattens the lines and wrinkles on the skin, tightens sagging skin that appears with advancing age and restores youthful skin. More and more people are undergoing the treatment every year with a high rate of success. 

Features that can be corrected with Brow Lifts 

  1. Sagging and horizontal eyebrows that create an expression of exhaustion 
  2. Deep horizontal folds on the skin of the forehead 
  3. Excess fatty skin that droops over the eyelids 
  4. Frown lines between the eyebrows 

Types of brow lift and the respective procedures 

  1. Traditional or Coronal Brow Lift: The patient is put under general anesthesia and an incision is made on the forehead, just below the hair line to hide the scar. The excess skin is removed and the necessary skin tissues are lifted and tightened for a smooth appearance. Finally, the incision is stitched up. 
  2. Endoscopic Brow Lift: This surgery is also done under general anesthesia but many tiny incisions are made on the scalp. An endoscope is put in through the incisions so that the area of surgery is seen on a computer screen. Other surgical instruments are used to lift the skin tissue of the forehead, re position the eyebrows and remove all the extra skin and muscle tissue. Then, the incisions are closed with stitches. Temporal 
  3. Incision Brow Lift: This procedure is done with eyelid surgery. It requires larger incisions than those of endoscopic brow lift and these cuts are made just above the temples. Then the tissues above the eyebrows are re-positioned. The extra tissues between the eyebrows are also removed to flatten the frown lines. 

Post-surgical care and recovery 
You have to stop smoking and taking anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medication for a few weeks before and after the surgery. Using a cold compress is recommended in case of post-surgical pain. Your head needs to be kept elevated when lying down for a few days. You should have gauze and clean towels in case there are minor bleeds. There may also be slight swelling and bruising on the non-operated areas of the face. The pain and itching sensations experienced during recovery are milder in case of traditional brow lift than in case of endoscopic brow lift.
