It seems as if walking is one of the latest fitness trends – it's reported to lower your blood pressure, cholesterol, and risk of diabetes, in addition to resulting in fewer injuries than running. And the faster you do it, the more benefits you'll reap. To get your natural pace up to fitness walking levels, you'll need the right posture, the willingness to train, and 30 minutes to an hour four days a week. Are you ready?
Keep the right posture- As you walk, your chin should be up, your eyes gazing directly in front of you, your back straight, chest raised, and shoulders relaxed. It may help if you pretend you're walking in a straight line to keep your body in the correct position.
- It'll be easier to be conscious of your body if you take a minute to warm up beforehand – and it'll help prevent injury. Cool down, too, for the same reasons.
Use your arms. Your arms should be at your sides, bent at just under 90 degrees. Cup your hands gently – don't clench them – and swing them front to back, not side to side. They should be going out in front of you, not crossing.
- Using your arms will fuel your workout, too, helping you burn more calories. With more muscle groups being used, you'll get more out of your workout.
Take smaller strides. It's a common misconception that taking longer strides helps you walk faster, and on the surface, it makes sense. However, it actually slows you down. How fast can your feet touch the ground if you're taking huge strides? Not very. Take shorter, smaller, quicker steps, and you'll actually get to where you're going faster.
- Don't compromise your form to do so. You'll probably have the urge to elongate your steps (it's natural and how you likely normally walk) but resist. Keep good posture, use your arms, and your feet with fly underneath you.
Push off with your toes. You want to roll through from heel to toe when your foot hits the ground. Start with the back of your foot, and move forward, as if you're wiping gum off the bottom of your shoe. Pushing off with your toes also engages your leg and butt muscles, giving you a better workout.
- The natural spring of your calf muscles will propel your body forward, keeping your momentum. This landing is natural and how your foot craves to hit the ground – deviate from it and you risk injury.
Tighten your abs and butt. As you walk, flatten your back and tilt your pelvis (your hips) ever so slightly forward. Keeping everything tight and being conscious of your muscles gives you a more full-bodied workout and gets your entire body into gear for faster walking.
Don't think of it as "power walking." When most of us think of "power walking," we imagine people with their arms swinging about, taking wide, almost ridiculous-looking steps. That should not be what your aim is. You want to glide on the ground, not stomp carelessly all over it.
- Some professionals are beginning to coin the phrase "fitness walking." And it makes sense – a brisk walk can burn just as many calories as a run, and it's much less damaging for your muscles
Air pollution spike in Delhi post-Diwali is now every year story not being controlled by civic agencies. These days, air pollution ranges from very poor to severe category. In recent studies, it was found that not only particulate matter 2.5 and 10 mcg but chemicals and gases from air pollution also contribute to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Air pollution in present scenario looks inevitable but some precautionary measures at people's level can reduce its ill effects.
One should avoid outdoor activities in morning and evening hours (particularly respiratory patients). Try to use a properly fitted face mask when to go outside. Avoid visiting heavy traffic areas. Keep house windows and doors closed. The air purifier is only useful in closed space with the air conditioner on.
A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that's most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. A lipoma, which feels doughy and usually isn't tender, moves readily with slight finger pressure. Lipomas are usually detected in middle age. Some people have more than one lipoma. A lipoma isn't cancer and usually is harmless
The cause of lipomas is unknown. Lipomas tend to run in families, so genetic factors likely play a role in their development.
Symptoms--lipomas can occur anywhere in the body. Lipomas are:
- Situated just under your skin. They commonly occur in the neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, arms, and thighs.
- Soft and doughy to the touch. They also move easily with slight finger pressure.
- Generally small. Lipomas are typically less than 2 inches (5 centimeters) in diameter, but they can grow.
- Sometimes painful. Lipomas can be painful if they grow and press on nearby nerves or if they contain many blood vessels.
- Less frequently, some lipomas can be deeper and larger than typical lipomas.
Several factors may increase your risk of developing a lipoma, including:
Being between 40 and 60 years old. Although lipomas can occur at any age, they're most common in this age group.
Genetics. Lipomas tend to run in families.
Homeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is being practiced all over the world. Its strength lies in its evident effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through the promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels. When lipoma is concerned there are many effective medicines are available in homeopathy, but the selection depends upon the individuality of the patient, considering the mental and physical symptoms.
- Calcarea carb 200— Calcarea carb is one of the top remedies for lipoma. Calcarea carb persons are fatty and flabby and they have a tendency to excessively sweating on the head. They are sensitive to cold air. Calcarea carb persons have a special craving for boiled eggs and indigestible things like lime and chalk. In some cases, long-standing constipation and acidity may be associated with lipoma.
- Sulphur 200- Sulphur is an excellent constitutional drug for the treatment of lipoma. Sulphur patients experience extreme hot sensations in the body. The heat may be more marked in the palms, soles, and head. The skin looks dirty and it is dry. There is a history of skin complaints. Sulphur persons have marked aversion to bathing. They have a craving for sweets.
- Belladonna 200- Belladonna is best for lipoma when it is painful. The pain may worsen when touching the lump.
- Thuja occidentalis 200- Thuja got a great power of dissolving fatty accumulations. Thuja is prescribed when the person with lipoma has high cholesterol levels.
- Baryta carb. 200- Baryta carb is another effective remedy for lipoma. Baryta carb is suitable for persons who are backward mentally and physically. They are dwarfish and take cold easily. They are very sensitive to cold, very offensive foot sweat, very weak and weary, must sit or lie down or lean on something.
- Lapis albus 3x- Lapis albus is best for lipoma when it has a certain elasticity and pliability about them rather than stony hardness.
- Calcarea flour 30— Calcarea flour is prescribed when it is stony hardness in nature.
If a survey is done for the most common male sexual problem, the outcome would be erectile dysfunction. Commonly referred to as ED, it is a major problem for the male but it can be treated in simple ways.
By definition, ED is the repeated inability of a male to achieve and/or maintain an erection for a healthy and satisfying sexual relationship. The key word here is “repeated” as a quicker erection or softer erection is very common in many men, which could be a one-off instance and caused by transient factors like stress or lack of sleep. When this happens repeatedly, then it needs attention.
Symtoms: Erectile dysfunction is when:
- Erection is too soft, not allowing for sufficient penetration and prolonged intercourse
- Erection duration is very short
- There is difficulty in arousal
Risk factors: ED has been noted to be commonly seen in people, who have following behaviours:
- Advanced age (>60 years)
- Excessive alcohol abuse
- Sedentary lifestyle with no exercise
- History of diabetes
- History of groin surgical procedures for prostate, bladder, etc.
Causes: ED has both physiological and psychological reasons.
- Most common psychological reasons are strained relationships, performance anxiety, and other life stressors.
- Physical causes include reduced hormone levels and other chronic medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension.
Diagnosis: While ED is easy to diagnose medically, the truth is that not many would be forthcoming for a diagnosis. Given that this issue could be a jolt to the “manhood,” it is often not brought out in the open for discussion. Once that is done, the following steps can help in diagnosis.
- Medical history and specifically sexual history
- Check for genital abnormalities
- Blood testosterone levels
- Other vitals including blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol levels to identify overall health
- Sexual counseling involving the couple. Once they open up and get comfortable, the problem vanishes. Performance anxiety which is a major cause is taken care of, and ED is no longer an issue. Aligning the couple’s expectations also is very essential.
- Hormone supplements, both locally applied and taken into the system, help to a great extent
- Lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, moderating alcohol abuse, healthy eating habits, and moving away from sedentary lifestyle helps treat ED
- Medicines like Viagra are very useful for occasional cases of erectile dysfunction
As a last resort, there are advanced options like pumps, vacuum devices, implants, and surgical options, and implants. These are often not required, as in most cases, sexual counseling and hormone therapy help in managing ED. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Epithelial Ovarian Cancer is a condition in which malignant tumor emerges from the tissue lining in the outer surface of the ovary. Epithelial tumors are usually benign, but this form of malignancy has been found to be the most common type of ovarian cancer. Moreover, it cannot be diagnosed until in its advanced stage. Medical research shows that factors such as multiple pregnancies, delayed childbirth and early menarche seem to raise the risk of ovarian cancer, while dietary and environmental factors also play a significant role in it.
1. A majority of the patients have been observed to have extensive intra-abdominal growth.
2. They may experience discomfort or swelling of the abdominal region.
3. The feeling of being bloated, lack of appetite, unnatural weight alteration, dyspepsia, malaise, and urinary problems are frequently reported symptoms.
4. Patients also experience constipation and other gastrointestinal problems.
The first step towards treatment of ovarian cancer is to diagnose the condition. A thorough pelvic examination (consisting of an examination of the vagina, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix) will help to pin point any abnormality of the ovary. If the doctor notes nodularity, firmness or lack of tenderness during the examination, these can be taken as symptoms of malignancy of epithelial ovarian tumors. Ultrasound examination of the abdominal region will also help to locate abnormality in the tissues on the outer surface of the ovary. The next logical step towards treatment is getting a biopsy. During this procedure potentially malignant cells are removed and then diagnosed by a pathologist to conclude if the cells are cancerous or not. The process of removal is known as laparotomy.
Apart from a handful of stage one patients, most women with epithelial ovarian cancer receive chemotherapy. The standard treatment for this type of ovarian cancer is the surgical elimination of tumor. This includes total abdominal hysterectomy, a surgery in which the uterus and cervix is removed through an incision in the abdomen. Post surgical treatment consists of taxane-platinum chemotherapy. Patients with minimal residual cancer undergo external radiation therapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (radioactive liquid is channelled into the abdomen with the help of a catheter).
A lot of research has been done in this field and a variety of clinical trials are available for a patient, if he/she wishes to be a part of it. Leading methods are immunotherapy and targeted therapy are also available. Immunotherapy uses the immune system of the patient to battle cancer. Bodily substances or substances created in the lab are used to restore and boost the body’s natural defence mechanisms against cancer. Targeted therapy, on the other hand, uses substances to identify the cancer and attack the malignant cells without jeopardizing non-cancerous cells.
