Know What Your Lunch Should Include!

Packing a healthy lunch, whether for work or for school, is always a good option if you want to stay fit and healthy. Working for long hours can take a toll on your health. You should eat food items which are low in fats and high in nutrition; try and eat more veggies and fruits. Eating your lunch outside everyday can result in an upset stomach whereas home-made food items are both tasty and healthier.

Here are some food items which you should definitely consider for a healthy you.

  1. Sandwiches: Cheese and tomato sandwiches are a great source of protein; especially cottage cheese, as it is an awesome low-fat source of protein. Tomato is good for your skin and also prevents cancer. You can also consider a healthier version by swapping mayonnaise with avocado as it is full of healthy monosaturated fats.
  2. Salads: Salad, especially green salad, is one of the healthiest food items you can pack for lunch. It is simple to make and is a great appetizer as well. You can also add flavour to your salads by adding lots of fruits and vegetables that you like to eat.
  3. Eggplant Pizza: Instead of having the greasy one, you can make your own vegetarian pizza including your favourite vegetables. You can also opt for whole wheat pita-pocket rather than the heavy pizza dough. And diced eggplant acts as a rich source of fibre and potassium.
  4. Chicken Wraps: These are one of the best if you are in a rush and want to eat something spicy and healthy. Chicken is also a rich source of protein; you can add some ketchup to lend some extra flavour to your wraps. You can also include frozen corns, lettuce leaves and peas if you want.
  5. Fruits: If you want to maintain a healthy diet, you should surely include fruits in your lunch. It decreases the appetite for the actual meal. The fructose present in the fruits gives an energy boost and the fibre creates a feeling of fullness. Since most fruits are high on dietary fibres, they help to keep your weight in control.

What Happens To Your Skin As You Age?

What Happens To Your Skin As You Age?

The skin is one of the most delicate, yet at times, the most ignored part of the body. Human skin consists of three layers, namely, Epidermis, Dermis and Hypodermis.

The epidermis is the outermost layer of the body and provides protection to the skin. The amount of Melanin in the epidermis is responsible for the variation of skin colour.
The second layer, Dermis protects the body from stress and strains and also nourishes the epidermis.
The deepest layer, Hypodermis also known as subcutaneous tissue, conserves energy. It is made up of cells with the purpose of storing fat, to be utilized by the body.

A person's skin keeps on changing throughout human life. It becomes thinner with the age, because of the ever-changing hormonal production. With increasing age your skin also begins to age, losing its glow and becoming drier leading to larger pores, breakouts, wrinkles, dark circles, sagginess, patches, etc.

Following changes occur in the skin at different age groups:

  1. Infants: The skin of newborns is very delicate, often red/pinkish or purple in colour. The skin of babies keeps on developing with each passing day. Their skin is thinner and sensitive. Also, the newborn skin is more prone to infections and allergies, which is why it is always advisable to use hand-sanitizers before even touching a baby since a small infection might lead to a bigger issue for newborns. Premature babies generally have transparent skin vis-a-vis skin of full-term babies, who are born with fully developed thicker skin.
  2. Toddlers: The skin of toddlers as compared to infants is more developed and bright, and it keeps on changing as your toddler grows.
  3. Adolescents: The skin of adolescents is tougher and undergoes a major change because of the various hormonal changes that happen during this phase of the human body. To name a few, adolescents will experience an increase in sebum production, arm sweating, pubic hair growth, pimples, acne, etc.
  4. Adulthood: Oil production, breakouts, larger skin pores are a few of the skin changes that start as the body also starts to age. The skin might experience acne and dryness in this stage.
  5. Maturity: Exposure to sun, less intake of water, thinning of the epidermis and lack of proper skin care leads to various skin-related changes. These include skin pigmentation, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, paler skin, dryness, expression lines, thinner and drier skin.
  6. Old-age: During this phase of age, the human skin dries, becomes looser, veins become to be more visible, the appearance of age spots, sagging of skin, patchy skin are issues that humans are exposed to face.

Any skin related issue should be taken up and discussed with the Dermatologist/Skin Specialist to find the best cure to the problem.

Coffee - How Much Should You Drink?

Coffee is the boost up drink for many people. It brings freshness and stimulant to the day. Various studies show that coffee drinkers have a useful lifespan; it results in better concentration and productivity. Drinking coffee has many health benefits. But too much of anything is harmful to health. Too much caffeine can affect your health and disturb your bowel system.

Coffee is safe for adults. But if you are a heavy coffee drinker and your daily quota pass 6 cups a day, then you can be of risk to caffeinism. The prominent symptoms are anxiety and agitation. The caffeine in the coffee disturbs your sleep pattern and leads to insomnia and nervousness. Drinking too much coffee does not only lead to short term health issues, but also leads to an upset stomach and nausea. Caffeine intake, in the long run, may result in depression, high blood sugar levels, early menopause, and many more. It is essential that you keep a check on your coffee intake and does not make it an addiction.

How Many Cups of Coffee is Too Much?

The quantity of coffee in a day depends upon some factors that include the portion of caffeine in the coffee you are using and the amount of coffee in the cup. Generally speaking, the intake of caffeine in coffee is a matter of concern. If you are using a small cup of your home, the homemade coffee contains only 50mg of caffeine. The doctors suggest that on an average of 250 grams of cups of coffee has 100mg of caffeine. And a healthy young adult can have 400 mg of caffeine daily.

Does Too Much Caffeine Cause Heart Problems?

Coffee is known to boost your taste, mood, and metabolism. But only when taken in adequate quantity. Some studies show that high coffee intake has heart issues, like coronary heart disease. Drinking 2 cups of coffee daily is good for health and metabolism, but if you are drinking more than 6 cups a day, you need to leave the habit soon. Caffeine affects the nervous system in the body. It leads to high blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure can increase the chance of heart attack and stroke in person. It also tends to increase your heart rate and elevated blood sugar levels.

How Much Caffeine Will Kill You?

Consuming caffeine in the long run with higher quantity can lead to heart failure and break down of the nervous system. Coffee does not directly affect your heart or nervous system, but the caffeine in the coffee does. Doctors suggest that drinking 2 cups of coffee daily is acceptable and better for health.

All psychotropic drugs have side-effects: mild with some and severe with others. There are medicines to treat the side-effects too. But now the choice is whether the main problem is more serious than the side-effects. In that case, you will need to take the medication anyway. You can minimize the effects by being on therapy too and doing regular exercise, sleep well, deal with your feelings, eating a healthy diet, and living a stress-free life.

Are you stressed?Take adequate sleep. Sleep deprivation can cause dark patches. Use some sunblock with spf (at least 50) every time you go out in sun. U can do the following 1. Tomatoes--mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with one and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently apply this mixture on your dark areas and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse it off well with cool water. 2. Cucumber- vcut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill it for about 30 minutes. Place the slices on the dark areas for about 10 minutes. Wash the area thoroughly with water. 3. Raw potatoes -- grate a couple of chilled potatoes to extract the juice. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it on your affected area. Make sure the juice covers the area entirely. Allow the juice to sit for about 15 minutes and rinse well with cool water 4. Rose water -- soak cotton eye pads in rose water for a few minutes. Place the soaked pads on your dark patches. Leave them on for about 15 minutes. 5. Regularly undergo meditation and perform some exercise. U need proper constitutional med to get permanent relief. Ask for consultation so that I can help you better.

Hello kya green coffee capsual weight lost ke liye piya ja sakta hain? Or iske koi side effect ho sakte hain?
Hi, it doesn't have any side effect. However, prefer foods that are fresh and can be prepared like green tea/coffee instead of taking them in a capsule form.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details, in which there is no mention of how is your blood glucose controlled. Sometimes if blood glucose is not wll controlled, there is a chance of loosing weight and developing signs of general weakness. The medicine mentioned (cyproheptadine) is actually an antihistamine. Appetite stumlation is a side-effect of that drug. It is not supposed to be taken for that at all. Plus it will produce fair amount of drowsiness. Thanks.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency - Everything About It You Must Know!

Chronic Venous Insufficiency - Everything About It You Must Know!

Chronic Venous Insufficiency is an abnormal condition of the leg veins. It occurs when either the walls or the one-way valves of the veins cannot work effectively. This
makes it difficult for the veins to send the impure blood from the legs to the heart. This results in impure flowing backward and collecting at places in the veins. It can
cause swelling, pain, and changes in skin and over time may lead to ulcers in legs.

Causes of Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Veins return impure blood from all parts of the body to the heart. In the case of legs, the impure blood has to flow upwards to the heart. The natural coordination between contractions of feet and calf muscles with every step helps to push the blood upward. The veins have one-way valves to ensure that impure blood does not flow back up into the veins.

● If the valves in the veins somehow get damaged or weakened, the impure blood starts backing up. This results in Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
● Blood clots in the deep veins can also precipitate this disease. Blood clotting in the deep veins of the legs is a disease which is known as Deep Vein Thrombosis. Nearly 30% of people with Deep Vein Thrombosis develop this disease.
● Vascular malformations and Pelvic tumors may impair the natural coordination of muscles and lead to failure of leg valves in holding the weight of impure blood. This may lead to swelling of legs and Chronic Venous Insufficiency. Damaged or weakened valves may result from aging, extended standing or sitting, reduced mobility or a combination of all. If either the valves or the walls of veins become so weak that the veins cannot ensure normal blood flow, it leads to higher blood pressure in the veins for extended periods of time leading to Chronic Venous Insufficiency.

Who Is At Risk?
CVI occurs frequently in people aged over 50 years, and it affects women more than men.

CVI is a gradual development. The earlier it is diagnosed, the better are the chances of recovery. Complexities of treatment increase with the disease progression. This is why early recognition of the symptoms can be a game changer. Waiting for the problem to go away would aggravate the problem. Early intervention would ensure a rapid recovery. This is why one needs to have a fair idea of the symptoms. The symptoms include:
● Swelling in ankles and lower legs, mostly after sitting or standing for extended periods.
● Tiredness or pain in the legs
Varicose veins
● Changes in the appearance of the skin of legs
Itching or flaking skin on the legs
● Ulcers in legs

Chronic Venous Insufficiency demands a combination of treatments to bring the situation under control. With the help of compression stockings, regular movement, and exercise, one can help the leg veins to push the blood up. If there are ulcers, the doctor may also recommend antibiotics to prevent infections. For blood clots, the doctor may also prescribe blood thinners. However, if the situation does not come under control despite these measures, the doctor may go for surgery that includes vein repair, vein transplant, vein bypass, vein ligation, etc. 

Take Away-
There are many treatments available for Chronic Venous Insufficiency. However, it is
always advisable to consult a doctor before opting for any treatment.
