Know Essentials To Keep Your Life Moving!

Know Essentials To Keep Your Life Moving!

Living a healthy life is actually not at all complicated, unlike deciding which car or smartphone to buy where there are hundreds of options.  To live a healthy life you only have to focus on four things – sleep, exercise, diet and social connection. And unlike car models or phone models that keep changing with time, these tenets don’t. 

Let’s look at them in detail –

1. Nutrition or diet

Food is the fuel for your body. It is needed to keep the body alive and functional. Now imagine a car that has a petrol engine. What if one day you decided to pour diesel into its fuel tank instead of petrol. The car will start and move but it will stutter and eventually, its engine will breakdown. 

It’s the same with the body. The body is engineered by nature to digest certain food, and you can even observe this through the indications that the body sends out- for example, the hangover after consuming too many drinks. Most of our diets have turned unhealthy in recent times, this is why we are also witnessing a spurt in lifestyle-related problems like obesity and diabetes

What you can do?

Know your nutritional requirements and try to meet them. Eat all food items that promote energy and vitality in the body without draining your energy. These two things will suffice when it comes to a healthy diet.

2. Sleep

Good sleep is one of the cornerstones of a healthy life. If your sleep is inadequate, then the moment you wake up a feeling of grogginess will take over. It could also make your mood bitter and drain energy during the day.

Sleep helps the body rebuild tissues and recover from the physical wear and tear of your daily routine. Thus if you aren’t sleeping enough, your body won’t be at its peak and vulnerable to break downs. 

What you can do?

One of the things to improve your sleep is to eat your dinner at least 2-3 hours before you sleep. Also showering before sleep can also help. You need to set your phone aside before you hit the sack as the blue light emitted from a smartphone can mess around with your body’s natural sleep cycle.

3. Exercise

Exercise is critical to a healthy life, which not many people realize. It helps you manage your weight and stay in shape. Not just that, exercising on a regular basis also can reduce the risk of age-related degenerative ailments like dementia and alzheimer's. 

At the end of an exercise session, you feel happy and content because it causes the body to release endorphins in your brain. Endorphins are also known as the feel-good hormone, which induces happiness in you.

What you can do?

A simple thing you can do is to walk as much as you can. For example – get off the bus a little farther away from the bus stop and walk the rest of the way. You can also take the stairs instead of the elevator or the escalator. If you can give dedicated time to exercise then you should at least aim for 30 minutes of exercise every day. You can take your pick from running, weight lifting, yoga, Pilates and many more. 

4. Social connection

By social connection, we don’t mean social media. In fact, it has been observed that social media has made us more disconnected from the world. People hardly have the time to spend with their families and friends anymore. 

A lot of people these days complain of loneliness and depression – lack of social connection is one of the causes. Doctors have also observed that a person with strong social connections also tends to have a strong immune system, low anxiety and longer life span.

What you can do?

While at social gatherings, avoid using your phone unless necessary. Interact with strangers around you – this will also reduce the fear of public speaking. Go out with your friends and family more often.

You can live a healthy and happy life if you adhere to these guidelines and follow them diligently.

How Much Sleep Do Children Need?

How Much Sleep Do Children Need?

Sleep is an essential part of a child's growth and development journey. Sleep helps the child develop both physically and mentally. Thus it is important for every child to develop good sleeping habits. The amount of sleep a child requires varies from child to child and according to their age.

Here's a broad guideline for how much sleep your child should be getting depending on their age.

Less than a year

The confusion between day and night ends when the baby is about 4 months old. This is when you will notice regular sleep patterns emerging. By the time they are 6 months old, most infants have a regular sleep and wake cycle. At this age, your baby needs at least 15 hours of sleep a day. The goal here is to establish healthy sleeping habits.

1-3 year old

After their first birthday, toddlers tend to reduce their number of daytime naps. But they still require 11-14 hours of sleep a day. Let your child take a 1-3 hour afternoon nap and put them to bed early so that they can get a full night's sleep.

3-6 year old

Naps gradually become shorter as the child grows up. These pre-schoolers need 10-13 hours of sleep a day. At this age, it is a good idea to encourage your child to fall asleep on their own. They should no longer need an adult to put them to sleep. They should also learn to fall back asleep on their own if they wake up in the middle of the night.

 7-12 year old

A pre-teen needs 10-11 hours of sleep a day but the average sleep they get is about 9 hours. The challenge at this age is to not allow bedtime to get very late. Once they start going to school, children have a fixed time to wake up. Thus, a late bedtime will give them inadequate sleep.

12-18 year old

Teenagers require 8-9 hours of sleep a day. In no way should they get less than 7 hours of sleep. It is a good idea to keep the television and computer out of their bedroom. Also, avoid letting them have caffeinated drinks before sleeping.

Poor or inadequate sleep can lead to a number of health complications as well as mental disorders such as ADHD and cognitive problems. Thus it is important for your child to not only follow a regular sleep schedule but also to have restful sleep.

Diabetes - How Can It Damage Your Eye?

 Diabetes - How Can It Damage Your Eye?

Diabetes is the condition where the blood glucose levels in your body tend to be quite high and can have an adverse effect on many of the organs in your body. The eyes are no exception and can be quite adversely affected by diabetes as well. Let's look at the various problems you could face if you have diabetes.

1. Blurry vision: Diabetes can cause the lens in the eye to swell and this will affect the way you see. Because of the increased lens size, the eyes have difficulty in focusing on objects resulting in blurry vision. You will have to get your blood sugar levels back to normal and only then the vision will begin to correct itself. This will, however, take time to happen.

2. Cataract: Blurry vision for an extended period of time which progressively gets worse can be a symptom of cataract. Although cataracts can develop even in non-diabetic persons, they tend to accelerate and happen earlier in adults who have diabetes. Cataracts are usually fixed with surgery where the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.

3. Diabetic retinopathy: Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinal Detachment are one of the leading causes of blindness in adults who suffer from diabetes. The retina is a very important part of the eye which allows us to see the images by capturing light and then sending them to the brain via optic nerve. With diabetic retinopathy, the smaller blood vessels in your retina may get damaged and thus end up causing damage to your vision. This can be of three types:

a. Proliferative Retinopathy: In this condition very small blood vessels grow from the surface of the retina. The retina is the film at the back of your eye, and the tiny blood vessels are capillaries. These growing blood vessels are very delicate and bleed easily.

If you have had diabetes for years, your retina may develop this condition. As the retina is damaged by diabetes, the diseased retina releases special growth chemicals. These chemicals make tiny blood vessels grow: these are called 'new blood vessels'.

b. Background Retinopathy: Background or nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) is the earliest stage of diabetic retinopathy. With this condition, damaged blood vessels in the retina begin to leak extra fluid and small amounts of blood into the eye

c. Maculopathy: The macula is the central area of your retina. It is responsible for all your sharp vision, such as used for watching TV or reading. It can become damaged in diabetes, with leaks developing (oedema).

4. Glaucoma: This is a condition where fluids build up inside the eye and it results in increase in pressure within it. This may damage the blood vessels within the eye and cause vision changes. Problems within the eye may not be detected until you experience vision loss. Some of the symptoms of glaucoma may include:

1. Blurry vision

2. Watering from Eyes

3. Difficulty in vision

4. Pain in the eyes

5. Lights appear to have halos

6. Headaches

Treatments

Blurry vision also tends to go away slowly once the level of blood glucose is controlled either via medicines or by diet changes. However, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy may require a range of medicines to ease the pressure on the eye or to discharge fluid build-up. If none of these works, then relevant surgery may be required to resolve the problems.

I am in therapy for historic situational anxiety. I went to doctor for medication to help ease a bad season i'm in with the anxiety. Having anxiety with depression, but the anxiety is and has been the main problem from which everything stems. Doc prescribed wellbutrin and buspirone. Started wellbutrin this morning and feel a substantial increase in anxiety. Nervous to continue taking it if it's going to make the problem im trying to fix worse. Is wellbutrin usually prescribed for anxiety? Should I give it a little longer? Should I just take the buspirone as needed to keep the anxiety manageable?

Wellbutrin can cause anxiety in some people. So you should check with your doctor who may decide to change this medication for another. Anxiety and depression oftentimes go together. And you are right the anxiety may be increasing or even causing the depression. You need to check on your prenatal history and early childhood for influencing factors. You must combine medication with therapy. This is extremely important for your anxiety and depression. Life is full of problems as a norm. Any attempts to escape will never help: you must learn to face these problems every day with good success. The counselor will help you in this regard. I also strongly believe that every crisis offers an opportunity for change, if you seek it and grab the opportunity. Please meet with a counselor and work on your emotions, particularly fear and anger. Exercise is very important but you have to build on it developmentally. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hair Transplant - Understanding The Difference!

Hair Transplant - Understanding The Difference!

If hair fall is a problem that’s troubling you more with each passing day, then you should take it seriously before going bald. Needless to say, that your decreasing strands results in decreasing confidence and you spend your time horrified by the thought about what you should do to help the condition. Of all the methods that promise to bring back your lost tresses, the hair transplant surgery is the most effective one. It will not only cover up the bald patches but aid in restoring a young and self-confident appearance.

Choosing the best option:
Patients who feel like undergoing the process of hair transplantation treatment come across the two common terms FUE and FUT while doing their research. The problem is that in most cases it becomes difficult to decide which one should one go for. When you are in this kind of dilemma, the best way to get the best advice is to consult a cosmetic surgeon who can determine the most suitable treatment option based on your clinical history, personal preferences and budget.

Understanding the difference:
There are two ways in which a cosmetic surgeon can remove the hair follicles from the donor areas of the scalp one is follicular unit transplantation, and the other is follicular unit extraction and are known as FUT and FUE respectively.

FUT – Follicular Unit Transplantation
In the follicular unit transplantation or FUT method, a thin strip of hair is removed from the region of the scalp with a relatively high rate of hair growth. Then the hair follicle is harvested from the strip by a professional surgeon before they are individually transplanted to the areas with lesser hair growth.

FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction
On the other hand, in the case of follicular unit extraction or FUE, each single hair graft is removed from the donor area one by one with the aid of a punch tool. In this process, the hair follicle is removed randomly which results in unnoticeable changes in the donor areas. No matter whether you choose the FUT or FUE method, the process of transplanting the grafts remains the same.
FUE is highly recommended than FUT because it is a comparatively safer process that doesn’t require many professionals to carry out the task. Another reason is that many patients complain that FUT is not quite comfortable and there have also been instances of swelling and pain in the areas where the tissue was removed. Although this could be controlled and managed with the medication and other associated medical aid, one should talk to his doctor regarding which method should be chosen.

The primary difference between the hair transplant process and any other hair loss treatment is the permanence of the results. When you opt for this treatment, you will not only be able to flaunt your hair, but they will be so natural that no one would understand that you have undergone a hair transplantation process. Hence, with the modern treatments available, hair fall management has become more promising than ever.

Hair Loss - Know Reasons Behind It!

Hair Loss - Know Reasons Behind It!

Wake up to find too many strands of hair on your pillow can be a nightmare for anyone. Losing an average of 50 strands of hair a day is a normal part of the hair cycle. However, losing more hair than that could be a problem. Hair fall can be caused by a number of reasons including old age, hormonal imbalances, stress etc. Hair fall can be treated in most cases as long as the trigger has first been identified. This can be done with the help of lab tests. Some of the common reasons for hair fall are:

  1. Hereditary hair loss or androgenetic alopecia: Inheriting this gene from either parent can cause hair loss but the risk of hair loss is much higher if you have inherited the gene from both parents. This type of hair loss is marked by thinning that begins in the forehead region and gradually spreads across the scalp. Examining the pattern of hair loss is the first step to determining whether your hair loss is caused by genetic reasons. A biopsy of the scalp may also be required.
  2. Thyroid irregularities: The underproduction or overproduction of hormones by the thyroid gland can affect the rate at which the body metabolises oxygen and energy for the growth of skin cells, nails and hair leading to hair loss and other problems. In the case of hypothyroidism, hair loss is likely to be accompanied by weight gain, constipation, tiredness and depression. On the other hand, hair loss that is accompanied by drastic weight loss, nervousness, diarrhoea and weakened muscles is likely to be caused by hyperthyroidism. Between the two, hypothyroidism is more commonly responsible for hair loss. A simple blood test that measures the levels of thyroid stimulating hormones in your body can be used to determine whether your hair loss is caused by thyroid irregularities.
  3. Anaemia: A deficiency of iron in the body can result in inadequate red blood cells to transport oxygen through the body. This lack of oxygen translates to a lack of nutrients for hair growth and can result in brittle hair and hair fall. A deficiency of iron in the body can be tested with a blood test.
  4. Telogen effluvium: Hair fall that is experienced 2 to 3 months after a stressful event is likely to have been caused by telogen effluvium. This is a phenomenon that causes hair to move faster than normal from the growing phase to the resting and shedding phase. There are no specific tests that can be used to determine this phenomenon.
