Importance Of Healthy Oils In Daily Diet!

You must have heard a dozen times that consuming too much oil or oily food is bad for your health – but not always. Not when you use the right kind of oil in the right amounts. Then it can do wonders for your health.

What are healthy oils?

At 9 calories per gram, oils are the most efficient energy foods you can consume. They help your nervous system send signals to the brain and build healthy cell membranes. Besides, oils help the intestine absorb essential vitamins such as Vitamin K, E, D, and A, and store them in your body fat. They lubricate your skin, protect the organs, and help in the regulation of the hormones.

Benefits of Different Types of Healthy Oils

Two types of unsaturated fats are found in healthy cooking oils – polyunsaturated and monosaturated fats. Consuming foods rich in either of these fats is beneficial for your health – it can improve your cardiac health and help control your blood glucose.

Here are some of the most healthful oils you can include in your daily diet

Coconut Oil
Particularly rich in lauric acid, coconut oil is known to improve cholesterol levels and kill bacteria and other pathogens. The fats found in coconut oil help boost metabolism and keep you full for longer as compared to other fats. Two tablespoons of coconut oil per day are just enough to extract its health benefits.

Olive Oil
Olive oil, particularly Extra Virgin olive oil, has heart-healthy benefits – it increases the levels of ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and reduces that of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol in your bloodstream.

Canola Oil
Canola oil consists of both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which make it the healthiest cooking oil. With 7% saturated fat, canola oil helps bring down cholesterol levels. Since it is a rich source of vitamins K and E, moderate use of canola oil can reduce or prevent skin problems, such as spots and blemishes, wrinkles, fine lines, acne and signs of ageing. You can use canola oil in several ways - dressing on salads, or as cooking oil for stir-frying and sautéing.

Fish Oil
Fish oil, derived from the tissues of oily fishes, are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are known to improve hypertriglyceridemia and reduce inflammation in the body. The best source of fish oil is vitamin D3-rich cod liver oil. Fish oil contains a high concentration of polyunsaturated fats, which is why it should never be used for cooking. However, a tablespoon of the same can be consumed daily as a supplement, as recommended by a physician.

Rice Bran Oil
With a balanced amount of saturated, monosaturated, and polyunsaturated fats, rice bran oil makes for heart-healthy oil. The right amount of oryzanol antioxidant in rice bran oil helps keep your cholesterol levels under control. Moreover, vitamin E complex and other micronutrients contained in it can help combat free radicals and the effects of ageing.

Thus, using a moderate amount of this oil in your daily meal can benefit you in ways more than one.
Even if you choose healthy oil, make sure you are using it in moderation to avoid excess calorie intake. You should measure the serving size of each type before adding them to your recipe in order to keep a check on how much oil you are consuming. Preferably, you should consume oils that are rich in unsaturated fats rather than those high in saturated fats.

Viral Fever - How To Handle It?

Viral fever refers to a wide range of conditions caused by viral infections of the body. These infections lead to an elevation of body temperature, along with a variety of other symptoms such as headaches, body aches, chills and skin rashes. Viral fever can affect people of all age groups and may even be highly contagious if it is not contained and treated.

What causes viral fever?

Viral fever is caused by the infestation of viruses that spread through various avenues. These viruses enter the body and multiply at a specific site, leading to an infection that manifests itself as the symptoms of fever. This fever may be chronic or acute, depending on the nature of the infection and can easily spread from one person to another.

Some of the ways in which viral fever spreads are as follows:

  1. Aerial transmission (coughing and sneezing).

  2. Sexual transmission.

  3. Consumption of contaminated food and water.

  4. Contact with contaminated surfaces.

  5. Contact with infected animals.

The symptoms of viral fever begin to show after an incubation period during which the virus multiplies within the body. The nature and duration of the illness varies from case to case. The most common symptoms of viral fever that accompany high body temperatures include the following:

How is viral fever treated?

A case of viral fever can be quite easily treated if there is an absence of complications. For this, the illness simply needs to be diagnosed early. The use of antibiotics and steroids for treatment is advised against unless the infections have escalated beyond a certain extent. Some of the ways to treat viral fever are:

  • Prescription of antiviral medication

  • Adequate bed rest

  • Ample fluid intake

  • Administration of nasal decongestants

In most cases, the illness gets treated within the span of a few days. However, if the symptoms persist any longer, it is advisable to consult a specialist to check for underlying problems or complications.Treatments and Causes

Corneal Problems - Know Types Of It!

 Corneal Problems - Know Types Of It!

The cornea is the transparent layer of the eye that acts as a protective shield. The cornea, in combination with the sclera, protects the eyes from various harmful microorganisms and particulate matter, including the harmful UV radiations (to some extent). The cornea is made up of three important layers, the Endothelium, Stroma, and the Epithelium.

  1. Endothelium: The inner layer of the cornea, the endothelium helps to maintain a clear vision by removing the excess fluid absorbed by the stroma. The mitochondria-rich single celled layer functions more like a pump.
  2. Stroma: The middle corneal layer is extremely thick (~90% of the total corneal thickness) and composed mainly of proteins and fluids. Like the endothelium, the stroma, too, plays a pivotal role in the normal eye vision.
  3. Epithelium: Being the outermost layer, the epithelium functions as a defensive shield, protecting the eyes from harmful germs, bacteria and any matter that can harm the eye. Most importantly, the epithelium absorbs the essential nutrients and oxygen (present in the tears). The cornea, thus, plays a pivotal role in the normal vision of the eye. However, an injury or an infection can interfere with the corneal functioning, affecting a person's vision as well as giving rise to other complications (the eyes may appear itchy, watery and red. There may also be light sensitivity).

Some of the common cornea problems include

  1. Keratitis: Injury or microbial (bacteria, virus or fungi) infiltration of the cornea can trigger this condition resulting in corneal infection and inflammation. Some of the symptoms characteristic of keratitis include extreme light sensitivity, blurred vision. The inflammation can also result in redness, pain (moderate to severe) and watery eyes. Antifungal, antiviral or steroidal eye drops may provide relief from the associated symptoms.
  2. Shingles (Herpes Zoster): This condition mainly affects people who have suffered from chickenpox. In some cases, the virus though inactive may still be present in the body (in the nerves). However, at a later period, certain factors may trigger its activation. Once active, the virus can affect different parts of the body, including the cornea. Shingles can cause corneal soreness and inflammation. Old people and those with a weak immunity are more likely to suffer from shingles. People with shingles may benefit from the administration of steroidal (tropical) and antiviral eye drops.
  3. Ocular Herpes: This is a viral infection triggered by Herpes Simplex Virus I (HSV I) or Herpes Simplex Virus II (HSV II) resulting in herpes of the cornea. The condition gives rise to corneal inflammation and sores. Here too, the patient can get some relief by using antiviral or steroidal eye drops.
  4. Keratoconus: This is a degenerative disorder of the cornea that results in thinning of the cornea. The condition can also alter the corneal shape, resulting in swelling, pain, and loss of vision (partial to complete, particularly the night vision).
  5. Fuchs' Dystrophy: This is a corneal dystrophy whereby the corneal endothelial cells break down at a slower rate than usual. As a result, the stroma may be waterlogged resulting in swelling and blurred vision.

You have not described the thought that is causing all this distress. You must meet with a counselor and get some help with handling fear. Because you are not handling fear properly, you are tending to have anxiety and obsess about it to this extent. The counselor will help you deal with all your emotions and primarily help you express your feelings. You can also do some left brain exercises like: shutting your left nostril and breathing as much as possible; sleeping on your left ear only at night; doing calisthenic exercises along with counting and doing math problems on math worksheets, which you can download from google. In counseling you could identify where exactly did you stop expressing your fear and what kind of fear was induced sometime earlier in your life. When you deal with that much of your problem will have disappeared.

Interstitial Lung Disease - Know More!

Interstitial lung disease is an umbrella term that includes a number of conditions that causes scarring of the tissues of the lungs. This scarring can hamper your breathing and therefore cause less oxygen to be present in your blood.

When you are exposed to hazardous materials like asbestos for long periods, you can get interstitial lung disease. Even autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis can result in this condition. 

Once the tissues of your lungs are scarred, chances are that it can’t be reversed. While medications can slow the progress of the but you won’t be able to regain the full functionality of your lungs. In such cases, you can consider a lung transplant.

What are the signs?

You will difficulty in breathing – it may be aggravated when you exert yourself or you may experience shortness of breath during rest periods. A dry cough is another sign of this condition.

What causes it?

Interstitial lung disorders occur when you’ve had an injury in your lungs that set off an abnormal healing process. With the healing not happening in a normal way, the tissues around your air sacs tend to thicken and get scarred. The does not allow oxygen to get into your blood.

There are certain triggers for this condition – 

  1. If you are exposed to certain pollutants or toxins like silica dust, bird dropping and grain dust for long periods.

  2. Medications like chemotherapy drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs and heart medications.

  3. If you have the following medical disorders – scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease, dermatomyositis, Sjogren's syndrome and sarcoidosis.

What is the treatment? 

First, a doctor will carry out diagnostic tests to identify the cause of the problem. The following tests are usually performed –

  • Blood tests to detect autoimmune responses to pollutants

  • Imaging tests like CT scan and echocardiogram

  • Tests like oximetry and spirometry to determine your lung’s capacity

  • Surgical biopsy and bronchoscopy to analyse your lung tissue

Once the diagnosis is done, the doctor can suggest any one of them or a combination of the following methods –

1. Medications 

Corticosteroids are used to suppress the immune system. GERD can also damage your lungs, so you may be given medicines to reduce stomach acid if you have an excess of it.

2. Oxygen therapy

Oxygen therapy can help you with breathing and help you sleep better. But it won't stop damage to the lung tissues.

3. Pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation can help you perform your daily tasks without any hitch. It includes exercise, breathing techniques, eating healthy and emotional support.


If nothing else works, then the doctor may recommend a lung transplant. 

Moreover, there are certain lifestyle remedies that you can adopt –

  • Avoid smoking as it can aggravate your condition.

  • Eat a healthy and nutritious diet.

  • Take vaccines for respiratory infections like the flu and pneumonia.

The best way to deal with this disorder is to not have it at all. But with proper treatment, your symptoms can be reduced.

Ahaglow face wash has glycolic acid in it. So there is chance that, on repeated use it may cause dryness and appearance of a whitish patch. If skin appears to be dry. Apply ample moisturizer, preferrably one with only liquid parrafin or white soft paraffin. Avoid using ahaglow and soap over the face. For a more detailed review, please send pics of the area and or consult. Hope this helps.
