Diet For Summer Stroke / Effects

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi

Recommended Diet for Heat Stroke

Unani physicians claim that a diet for heat stroke can help prevent the problem to some extent, because dietary recommendations for a heat stroke patient could be quite useful. Undermentioned list is of some of the adjustments one can make in his diet, after a heat stroke.

  • It is essential to include fresh fruits, vegetables and juices in the regular diet to avoid heat related illnesses, especially heat Strokes because dehydration is an important cause behind the incidence of heat Strokes. Water content is high in these items and that’s why they help to keep the body well hydrated.
  • Oranges, pineapples, watermelons, grapefruits, lemons, cantaloupes and similar fruits are very useful in this condition.
  • Drinking plenty of water is also necessary, especially before going out in the sun. It is highly recommended to drink an additional amount of fluids, like fresh juice or an energy drink as it could replenish the levels of water in your body.
  • A part from that onions, mint, cucumber and yogurt should be positively included in the diet to prevent Heat Strokes. Not only due to its cooling effect, but these can also be great for the overall health.
  • It has been observed that low blood sugar can trigger the symptoms of heat Strokes. Add healthy sources of protein to your diet, which mainly include nuts, beans, pulses and olive oil. This will increase blood sugar levels, thereby preventing heat strokes.
  • Up to some extent, peppermint tea and raspberry tea are found to be highly effective in providing relief from these symptoms.

Restricted Diet for Heat Stroke

  • Excessive consumption of salt adversely affects the functioning of normal sweat production, as salt is rich in sodium, and excess sodium could hamper the regular production of sweat in the body which in turn increases the risk of developing this heat illness.
  • Consumption of alcoholic beverages should also be minimized because alcohol is known to increase heat in the body. In addition to this, caffeinated beverages induce frequent urination and cause unnecessary loss of water.

Healthy Diet Chart For Cholesterol Patients In Hindi - कोलेस्ट्रॉल रोगियों के लिए स्वस्थ आहार चार्ट

Healthy Diet Chart For Cholesterol Patients In Hindi - कोलेस्ट्रॉल रोगियों के लिए स्वस्थ आहार चार्ट

शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रॉल को स्वयं देख नहीं सकते, सिर्फ अनुभव कर सकते हैं. जब इसकी मात्रा अधिक हो जाती है तो हृदयाघात और दिल से संबंधित अन्य रोगों की संभावना बढ़ जाती है. आम तौर पर पुरुषों के लिए ४५ वर्ष और महिलाओं के लिए ५५ वर्ष की आयु के बाद हृदय से जुड़े रोगों की संभावना अधिक होती है. लेकिन ऐसा भी नहीं है कि अपने शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रॉल की मात्रा को संतुलित न कर सकते हों. इसके लिए अपनी जीवन शैली में थोड़ा बदलाव करना होता है. यदि वजन अधिक है तो इसमें कमी लाने का प्रयास करना चाहिये. भोजन में कम कोलेस्ट्रॉल मात्रा वाले व्यंजन चुनें. तैयार भोजन और फास्ट फूड से बचें. तली हुई चीजें, अधिक मात्रा में चॉकलेट न खाएं. भोजन में रेशायुक्त सामग्री को शामिल करें. यह कोलेस्ट्रॉल को संतुलित बनाए रखने में सहायक होते हैं.
हरी और काली चाय कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को घटाने में कारगर है. जो लोग ज्यादा चाय पीते हैं उनमें कोलेस्ट्रॉल भी कम होता है और स्वास्थ्य संबंधी अन्य समस्याएँ भी कम होती हैं. हरी और काली चाय में जो प्राकृतिक रूप से कुछ रसायनों का मिश्रण होता है, उनसे कोलेस्ट्रॉल काफ़ी कम हो जाता है. प्रोसाइन्डिंस नामक रसायन जो स्वास्थ्यवर्धक होता है, यह डार्क चॉकलेट में भी पाया जाता है. यह रक्तवाहिका प्रकार्यों को बेहतर करते हैं, आर्टरी-क्लॉगिंग एलडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल का लेवल कम करते हैं और हार्ट के लिए हेल्दी एचडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल का लेवल बढ़ाते हैं.
1. फाइबर युक्त नाश्ता
इसमें दलिया, साबुत अनाज, रेशेदार फल आदि का सेवन करें. ऐसे अनाज खरीदते समय उसके डब्बे पर देख लें, 5 ग्राम या इससे ज्यादा मात्रा में फाइबर मौजूद होना चाहिए. जई ब्रान या राइस ब्रान ज्यादा प्रभावी होता है. इसका इस्तेमाल से आप अपना कोलेस्ट्राल नियंत्रित कर सकते हैं.
2. साबुत अनाज
जिन लोगों को कोलेस्ट्राल से सम्बंधित समस्या है उन्हें साबुत अनाज खाने को प्राथमिकता देनी चाहिए. इन लोगों को साबुत अनाज से बने ब्रेड, पास्ता, क्रैकर्स और सफ़ेद चावल के बदले ब्राउन राइस का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए.
3. बिन्स
सप्ताह में कम से कम 3 दिन आपको बिन्स खाना चाहिए. सम्भव हो तो आपको बिन्स का सूप पीना चाहिए. इसके अलावा बिन्स की सहयाता से बने तमाम डिशेज का भी सेवन कर सकते हैं. इससे स्वाद में भी अंतर आता रहेगा और आपका सेहत भी बना रहेगा.
4. प्रोटीन युक्त सोया
कोलेस्ट्राल के अनियमित होने पर प्रोटीन युक्त फलियों का सेवन काफी राहत देने वाला होता है. यदि आप प्रोटीन युक्त फलियों का सेवन करें तो ये ज्यादा प्रभावी होता है. इसके अलावा आप सोया मिल्क आदि भी ले सकते हैं.
5. फल और सब्जियां
इस दौरान आपको फल और सब्जियों का सेवन खूब करना चाहिए. इसके लिए आपको अपने दैनिक आहार में इसे शामिल कर लेना चाहिए. नाश्ते, दोपहर का भोजन और रात्री भोजन के दौरान कभी साबुत फल तो सलाद के रूप में खाते रहना चाहिए.
6. साबुत फल खाएं
यदि आप भी कोलेस्ट्राल की समस्या से दो-चार हो रहे हैं तो आपको भी साबुत फल खाने पर विशेष ध्यान देना चाहिए. कहने का तात्पर्य यह है कि कई लोग फल खाने के बदले जूस पी लेते हैं जो कि ज्यादा लाभदायक नहीं होता है.
7. लहसुन का सेवन
अनियमित कोलेस्ट्राल के मरीजों को लहसुन का सेवन करना चाहिए. लहसुन का सेवन उनके लिए फायदेमंद रहता है. इसके लिए आप चाहें तो कच्चा या पक्का दोनों तरह के लहसुन का इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. ये आपके लीवर को कम कोलेस्ट्राल का उत्पादन करने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करता है.
8. ये भी खाएं
इस दौरान और भी कई ऐसे खाद्य पदार्थ है जिसका सेवन करने से मदद मिलती है. इसमें कच्चा प्याज, जैतून का तेल, बादाम और अखरोट का सेवन शामिल है. साल्मोन, ओलिव ऑइल, अखरोट और बादाम तो उच्च वसा युक्त होते हैं और आपके कोलेस्ट्राल को सुधारते हैं.
9. विटामिन सी और ई
इस दैरान आपको उन खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन करना चाहिए जो प्राकृतिक एंटीऑक्सिडेंट से युक्त होते हैं. इसके लिए विटामिन सी और ई का सेवन महत्वपूर्ण है. इनके लिए आप स्ट्रॉबेरी, संतरा,पपीता, ब्रोकली का सेवन विटामिन सी के लिए और सूर्यमुखी के बीज, मुन्गाफलियाँ, बादाम, अखरोट, मूंगफली और सोयाबिंस का सेवन विटामिन ई के लिए करें.

Might be spondylitis, acidity or anxiety. However you may get a TMT test for cardiac workup. Adopt healthy diet and exercise and avoid all forms of tobacco. This will help you regardless of whether you have disease presently or not. Regards.

Stroke - How Physiotherapy Can Help With It?

Stroke - How Physiotherapy Can Help With It?

Stroke is a medical condition in which the flow of blood towards the brain is poor and causes the death of certain cells. There are two common types of stroke: 

1. Ischemic- due to lack of blood flow
2. Hemorrhagic- due to bleeding

Signs and symptoms of stroke 

  • Problems with movement
  • Inability to feel  on one side of the body
  • Problems understanding or in speech
  • Vertigo
  • Loss of vision
  • Difficulty in carrying out everyday activities

Role of Physiotherapy for Patients with Stroke

  • The main focus of physiotherapy is to help you use your arms and legs to regain as much strength and movement as possible.
  • If you have one-sided paralysis, correct positioning is important to prevent spasm or injury.
  • It helps you to sit up as this will help you avoid blood clots in your legs, improve your breathing and help you recover quickly.
  • If you are unable to move, you may be given chest physiotherapy to keep your lungs free of infection.

What does a Physiotherapist do?

  • A physiotherapist advises you on how you should be positioned when lying or sitting, and how often you need to be moved.
  • Motivates you to be actively involved in your physiotherapy sessions to help you relearn normal patterns of movement
  • Decides when you should begin to start walking and what equipment is needed to move or support you
  • Provides therapy to strengthen your limbs and teach you how to move again as independently as possible
  • Takes care of the fact that no complications should arise and you have a smooth recovery.

Treatment Techniques:

  • Strength Training: It is evident that strength training can improve upper-limb strength and function without increasing tone or pain in individuals with stroke.
  • Gaming: Goal orientated computer gaming has proven to significantly reduce upper limb impairment in stroke survivors.
  • Virtual Reality: Virtual reality training has been shown to be effective in restoring upper limb motor impairments and motor-related functional abilities.
  • Mirror Therapy: Mirror therapy has been shown to have a beneficial effect on motor control and function compared to conventional therapy.
  • Robot-Assisted Therapy: It has been shown to have a beneficial effect on motor recovery and function.

In the upper extremity with severe impairment and/or poor prognosis for recovery, Chedoke McMaster Stroke Assessment (CMSA) of Arm and Hand < Stage 4) treatment should focus on maintaining a comfortable, pain-free, mobile arm and hand. Engage in repetitive and intense use of novel tasks that challenge the stroke survivor to acquire necessary motor skills to use the involved upper limb during functional tasks and activities. Engage in motor-learning training including the use of imagery.

7 Foods That Can Lower Your Cholesterol Level!

7 Foods That Can Lower Your Cholesterol Level!

Cholesterol is generally regarded as something bad for the health. As a part of diet, everyone tries to avoid anything that has cholesterol in it. What needs to be understood is that not all cholesterol is bad. There is also good cholesterol, which is actually very essential for body functions. This is required for the production of essential hormones. Inadequate amounts of good cholesterol can lead to problems ranging from simple hormonal imbalances to severe issues like infertility.

The following are some food items, which contain sufficient amounts of good cholesterol and should find a place in your plate. They are essential for various body functions including hormone formation.

  1. Avocado oil: Most oil is considered bad, but avocado oil contains about 70% of good cholesterol and should be used for its heart-healthy benefits. Being a great antioxidant, it protects the heart by reducing inflammation and by improving blood pressure. Eating whole avocado is also beneficial for the heart and the body as a whole.

  2. Buckwheat: This whole grain is rich in many vitamins, quite a few minerals, and is a good provider of dietary fiber. It is also gluten-free and is rich in antioxidants, making it extremely cardio-friendly.

  3. Soy: Too much saturated fat in the diet cannot be digested and the liver converts these and stores it, which adds to obesity. Soy which is a good replacement for animal fat and even dairy products can help improve cholesterol levels and prevent fat accumulation.

  4. Salmon: This is one of the most heart-friendly food items, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and good cholesterol. It lowers triglyceride levels and provides a good amount of protein for the body.

  5. Spinach: The cholesterol which settles against the blood vessels is washed off by consuming spinach – in regular quantities at regular intervals. It is also the richest source of lutein, which is known as guardian against aging diseases including hypertension.

  6. Go the nutty way: While most would consider nuts as rich in oils, truth is they are loaded with good cholesterol. Therefore, whether it is almonds or pecans, ground nuts or walnuts, nuts are great for the heart. They are also rich in minerals including calcium, copper, magnesium, and potassium and contain various vitamins. So about a teaspoon of chopped nuts should be on your plate on any given day.

  7. Dark chocolate: Again, like nuts, most of us tend to avoid chocolate, but these restrictions are only for the white ones with sugar. The dark one is extremely healthy for the heart with loaded antioxidants, which prevents clogging of arteries. It is also rich in flavonoids, which are useful in controlling blood pressure and other heart diseases.
