Monsoon Season Health Tips To Avoid Getting Sick!

 Monsoon Season Health Tips To Avoid Getting Sick!

The monsoon may be a season of joy, but it has also got equal woes. The monsoon brings a lot of health problems along with the rain and clouds. Monsoon is characterized by thriving of numerous germs and bacteria. The increased humidity causes many disorders in the digestive system. Keeping yourself away from rainwater is not the only way to ensure good health during the monsoon season. 

Here are several tips to stay healthy during the monsoon-

1. Skip having outside food

Avoid street food strictly during the monsoon. Street food like pani poori, bhel poori, pakoras and other chaats may look tempting, but they may contain harmful bacteria, which might affect your digestive system. Furthermore, avoid raw food. All these foods may cause food poisoning.

2. Include vegetables in your diet

You should eat a variety of green and coloured vegetables, which are nutrient rich and keep you fit during the monsoon. Wash all vegetables properly before cooking.

3. Take a shower after getting wet

If you get wet in the rain, you must follow it up with a shower immediately. This washes off any infection that might have passed on from the rainwater. To avoid fever and cold, do not enter an air-conditioned room with wet clothes or hair.

4. Try to avoid fish

During the monsoon, you should avoid consuming fish and prawns as much as possible, as they may cause infections. Monsoon is the breeding season for fish, and the infection might upset your digestion. 
So, only eat fresh fish.

5. Always stay hydrated

During the monsoon, you must drink a lot of water and keep your system clean. You can drink boiled water to get rid of germs. Infected water may cause stomach disorders. Try having different sorts of herbal tea or green tea. Avoid coffee as it dehydrates your body.

6. Keep your house clean

Your house should be kept clean and pest-free during the monsoon. Check for any water clogging or leakage. Replace any rusted or broken drainpipes as they act as a breeding ground for germs and pests which cause malaria and dengue. Prevent any kind of water logging to keep mosquitoes away.

7. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise is vital to keep yourself healthy, especially in monsoon. Since, going out in the rain is impossible, work out at home. Practice yoga and free hand exercises.

Monsoon is the season of various diseases caused by germs and bacteria, which breed during this season. Take all the required precautions to keep yourself healthy during the monsoon.

Nicotine Addiction - Causes & Symptoms Of It!

Nicotine Addiction - Causes & Symptoms Of It!

Nicotine addiction or tobacco addiction refers to an acute dependence upon tobacco products primarily due to the presence of the nicotine drug. In other words, nicotine addiction refers to an inability to stop using tobacco products despite the knowledge and awareness that it is harmful to you. While nicotine only induces addiction, it is the presence of other substances in tobacco which makes it damaging and injurious to health.

Nicotine has the tendency to produce effects in the brain, both physical as well as mind-altering, that give temporary satisfaction. This is precisely why people get hooked into the habit of tobacco consumption, which eventually leads to addiction. Unfortunately, stopping tobacco use immediately can also lead to several withdrawal symptoms, like agitation and restlessness.


The main reason why tobacco is so addictive is due to the fact that nicotine releases neurotransmitters such as dopamine in the reward centre of the brain, which in turn improves your mood and gives you temporary pleasure.

Causes of nicotine addiction can either be physical or behavioural, for instance, situations or feelings, which make you crave for tobacco. These include:

  1. Specific times during the day, say after every meal or during breaks at work
  2. While defecating
  3. While drinking alcohol
  4. Stressful or depressive situations
  5. At the sight or smell of a burning cigarette
  6. Peer pressure
  7. While driving


Symptoms of nicotine addiction include:

  1. You are unable to quit smoking despite frequent attempts.
  2. You experience withdrawal symptoms after attempting to quit.
  3. You continue to smoke despite the awareness that it is injurious to your health.
  4. You forego social as well as recreational activities because of your need to smoke.

Habits That Lead To Weight Gain!

Habits That Lead To Weight Gain!

Obesity is rapidly evolving as a public health issue for our country and as educated people, we are responsible for contributing to the ever-increasing problem. So what is there that leads to weight gain despite our all effort? The simplest answer is ignorance! Most of the person who are trying hard to curb the weight gain does not succeed in doing so due to inadequate and poor gathered information. Remaining hungry is not the solution for weight loss and we need to inculcate good habits in ourselves smartly to sustain it for long time, else you will loose kilos in few months and regain much more than that. This cycle would continue until we understand the basic of healthy eating.

So the important aspect is to make consistent and slow changes in our lifestyle to sustain ideal weight.

There are a few bad habits to watch for:

  • Fizzy drinks: Most of the fizzy drinks are full of calories and they go down easy the throat. But before we realize we make our system take in loads of calories. Try to restrict your soft drinks and prefer other beverages like lemon juice and coconut water, both of which can be refreshing with minimal calories.
  • TV watching: Eating while watching TV is something which is a very prominent cause of gaining fat. Usually while on screen we tend to forget how much we have taken in and most of the time we realize this when a packet full of chips becomes empty!!
  • Lack of sleep: It has been shown that due to lack of sleep our hormone cycle gets disturbed and the cortisol levels change, leading to weight gain. Second, if we remain awake for a long time we tend to eat more, thereby gaining extra calories.
  • Shopping when hungry: Research has shown that when we buy our grocery when we are hungry, you tend to buy things which are easy to grab and are high in calorie dense. Hence always have healthy food before you go shopping.
  • Desserts: Eating something after the main course often leads to high-calorie food intake like ice cream, sweets. So instead of these, try to take simple desserts like lemon water, or something non-caloric. Best is to avoid it completely.
  • Time of meal: Most of the time we try to postpone or skip our meal, ultimately this leads to severe hunger, making us eat whatever we can grab immediately. Most of the time this is high caloric fast food. Always plan your meals and carry healthy food items with you like fruits, sandwiches.
  • Fat-free/sugar-free food: Fat-free or sugar-free foods are not calorie free food items. We should always look for the portion size and amount of calorie we are going to have.
  • Lack of exercise: Not taking time out for your regular exercise makes you gain weight and also makes you lazy.
  • Going out to eat: Frequent outings leads to an increase in the consumption of food high in calorie, sugar and salt, leading to weight gain. Restrict your outings to not more than once or twice a month.
  • Dehydration: Drink lots of water, so that you keep on flushing out harmful toxins.

So to avoid being obese eat healthy and exercise regularly.

Hello, thanks for the query. Erectile dysfunction (ed), is one of the most common complications of diabetes. It occurs due to the damage to microvasculature supplying the penile muscles. If blood glucose levels are not in good control (fasting < 100 mg or closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 170 mg & hba1c% < 6.8%), then ed is seen quite often. There is no mention of your blood glucose control at all. It is necessary to look at overall treatment, including above details, diet pattern, the extent of daily exercise, weight & height. The tablet mentioned (by you) may be tried. There is no proven clinical evidence. There are other drugs called pde - iv inhibitors which can be beneficial. Thanks.

4 Ways To Control Dandruff

Who would have thought that a little dry scalp could make a multitude of people feel terrible about their lives! Dandruff is not only upsetting because of the physical constraints it brings along, but also because it is a compelling cause of mental setback. Peers and relatives judge you silently; they might choose to avoid your company. Some might even console you that you are making the issue more embarrassing.

A wide mass of people will suggest you with tips and ideas to tackle the situation; in most cases a majority of these tips arise from popular assumptions. The best suited option for you is to consult an expert dermatologist and to maintain the health of your hair through natural home remedies alongside.

Ways to curb dandruff:

This protein rich ingredient provides strength and nourishment to one's hair while curing flaky skin. It is also rich in amino acids. Lecithin, an emollient, can prove to be effective in strengthening the hair roots and preventing them from falling off due to dandruff and subsequent itchiness.

2. Use egg white in combination with lemon juice: Lemon juice has a high concentration of citric acid. When used in combination with egg whites, it can treat a dry and itchy scalp. This concoction is also acclaimed for its smoothing effect on rough and brittle hair.

3. Listerine is a multifaceted product: You knew it could only act within the realm of your mouth and you were very wrong. Listerine has more to itself than a person can think of. Listerine is meant to fight fungal and bacterial infections and it therefore, can be used on a person's scalp. One part of this liquid should be mixed with two parts of plain water and then poured into a spray bottle. This mixture should be applied on your head to make you experience the difference.

4. Neem leaves could be your ready solution: Neem leaves are held in high regard for their antifungal properties. Apply neem paste on your scalp to get rid of dandruff. One may even boil a fistful of these leaves in water and wash his or her hair with the lukewarm liquid after a head bath.

Hi Sir, Could you please tell me the cost of cbt and any good hospital for cbt over 2 or 3 years.

Hi Sir, Could you please tell me the cost of cbt and any good hospital for cbt over 2 or 3 years.
Hello and welcome to Lybrate. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. Cbt is a evidence based therapeutic procedure. Each cbt session should cost from rs. 500 to rs. 1000. Cbt is done by psychologists not in every hospitals. The duration depends on the intensity of the psychological disorder. Cbt can also be done online, through video or audio consultation. I suggest telephonic counseling and online cbt for you. You can contact me for further advice and treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user, there are various types of problems in which hair loss and thinning can happen. Losing about 50-80 strands per day is normal and it is a part of hair cycles, under normal healthy circumstances these hair grow back. Any loss above 100 per day is a cause of concern. Commonest reasons for hair loss are anemia, post any illness like malaria, typhoid, jaundice etc, chemical treatments of hair like straightening, perming and coloring, thyroid, hormonal imbalance, pcos and occasionally nutritional deficiency. Hair requires mainly protein and iron apart from certain minerals. So focus on having dal, milk, eggs, dry fruits like almonds, walnuts, raisins, fruits like apples oranges, sweet lemon, jaggery, dates apart from these you can have green tea, soya and pumpkin seeds where there is thinning of hair shaft. Take an online consultation through Lybrate to get you condition assessed and to treat the same medically.

Television Actor Ram Kapoor's Shocking Weight Loss Transformation!

Television Actor Ram Kapoor's Shocking Weight Loss Transformation!

Actor Ram Kapoor recently took the internet by storm, after he posted recent pictures of his extreme weight loss transformation. His journey from ‘fat to fit’ has left his fans stunned, and inspired many to strive towards a healthier lifestyle. 

Reportedly, the Bade Achhe Lagte Ho actor, who previously weighed 130 Kgs, turned to intermittent fasting and intense workouts to shed the extra kilos. The 45-year old actor revealed that it took him 2 years to achieve his goal. 

The method he employed was intermittent fasting with regular workouts. Let’s take a look at his diet and exercise regime.

Workout Regime -

To start with, the actor directly hits the gym every morning on an empty stomach and does heavy weight training. At night, just before going to bed, he makes sure he engages in some intense cardio workout to sweat it out. 

Fitness experts suggest that a combination of cardiovascular exercise and weight training work best for weight loss. While cardio exercises like running, jogging, and cycling helps burn calories, heavy weight training helps build muscles and gives you a fitter, toned look. 

Diet Plan -

The actor stuck to intermittent fasting to go from fat to fit. For those, who are not familiar with the term, Intermittent Fasting is a diet plan, which cycles between periods of eating and fasting over a defined period. It does not specify the kinds of food one should eat, but rather when one should eat. The 16/8 intermittent fasting method involves eating during an 8-hour window and fasting for the remaining 16 hours over a period of 24 hours. 

Regardless of the time of consuming food, it is advised that you consume light snacks and small meals several times, spaced evenly throughout the day. Try to balance each meal with a variety of nutritious foods, which includes vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Remember, you are not allowed to eat anything solid during the fasting period. However, one can drink beverages like coffee, tea and water during the period. Nevertheless, keep a check on the calories you intake. 

Pros and Cons of Intermittent Fasting -

Intermittent fasting has gained immense popularity owing to its long-term benefits on health. Here are some advantages of the diet plan –

  • Promotes weight loss – restricting calorie intake to a few hours help burn calories throughout the day, boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss

  • Improved blood glucose control – intermittent fasting lowers levels of fasting insulin by up to 31% and reduces blood glucose by 3-6%, potentially lowering your risk of diabetes

  • Enhanced longevity – this type of diet has been associated with extended longevity

Despite the many health benefits, intermittent fasting does come with a few drawbacks, including the following –

  • Limiting food intake to only 8 hours may lead some people to consume more than usual during non-fasting periods in an attempt to make up for the hours spent fasting, eventually leading to digestive problems and weight gain

  • If you are just getting started with intermittent fasting, it may take a toll on your health, causing symptoms like weakness, fatigue, and increased hunger

Therefore, consider both the pros and cons of intermittent fasting before you start off with your weight loss journey.

Precautions to Take in Intermittent Fasting -

16/8 intermittent fasting can improve your health when paired with an active, healthy lifestyle and nutritious foods. It should not be viewed as a substitute for a well-rounded, balanced diet. Here are a few precautionary measures to take while turning to this type of diet pattern –

  • Shorten your fasting periods

  • Eat in small quantities on days when you are fasting

  • Stay hydrated

  • Meditate or go for short walks

  • Do not break your fast with a huge meal

  • Include enough protein in your diet

  • Consume plenty of whole foods on days when you are not fasting

These tips will help you get going as you turn to intermittent fasting. In case you feel unwell, stop fasting at once and consult a doctor.

Intermittent fasting is easy to follow and sustainable and flexible in the long term. Although this type of diet is considered usually safe for most adults, you should discuss the diet plan with your doctor before trying it, especially if you have a history of an underlying medical condition.
