7 Tips To Help You Keep Healthy While Travelling

7 Tips To Help You Keep Healthy While Travelling

1. Pack it in advance

At the moment, food is still allowed in all forms of transportation (plane, bus, train, boat) so use it to your advantage by packing easy to-go meals and snacks to keep in your carry on. If you are traveling through the airport, all foods must be wrapped, packed, or contained. Also, the no liquid over 3.5 ounces rule applies here so leave dressings, sauces, or creamy substances at home if they are greater than said amount.

Here are 7 healthy travel snack examples:

1) Dried fruit and nut mix – Mix your favorite combo and throw them into the perfectly portioned snack bags. Some of my favorites are pistachios (shelled) and dried cranberries or raisins and almonds. For a lower calorie, crunchier option, add a high fiber cereal (6gm of fiber, 8gm of sugar) 2) nut butter sandwich – choose your favorite and slap it between 2 slices of 100% whole wheat or whole grain bread. I love justin’s nut butter travel packs as an option too.

3) Fruit – Make it easy by throwing a portable fruit in your bag. Apples and bananas are great go-tos for this.

4) Turkey sandwich – Try a low-sodium turkey breast (nitrate/nitrite-free is also a great choice) on 100% whole wheat or whole grain bread with your favorite mustard. Hint: adding mustard in between turkey slices will prevent soggy bread.

5) Veggies slices – If you don’t have the time to cut them, buy them pre-cut and throw them into a sandwich bag. Here’s an article on the best healthy snacks for the office that can also make a great travel snacks.

6) A health food bar – Choose ones that are made from whole and minimally processed ingredients and at least 8 grams of protein. Also, watch the sugar in these bars. Try to aim for less than 12 grams of sugar per bar. Some of my favorites include kindbar protein plus, think thin, nugo bar, oskri bar, clif mojo, the good bar, luna, luna protein, and simply bar.

7) Protein powders – These are great if you have a re-usable water bottle. Throw powder in with water or skim milk and you’ve got a great treat. Tera’s whey and vega offer great to-go packs!

If you are traveling by car, bring a cooler. This will expand your options tremendously!

2. Buy it on your way:

If you weren’t able to pack in advance, which is ideal, you can make the right choice when purchasing food at the airport, train station, gas station, or bus station. A few items that are available at most terminals and stations are:

Turkey or chicken sandwich
Nonfat or lowfat yogurt and fruit
Nuts mixed in nonfat or lowfat yogurt
Salads (with dressing on the side)
Trail mixes (without added sugary candies and chocolate)
Water (don’t go for sugar beverages, just don’t!)

3. Look around

Most of us rush to the station or terminal to sit and wait. Instead of going to the first vendor, use that time to look around at your options (and get some exercise). There has been a huge trend toward offering healthier options in almost all travel areas including airport terminals, bus stations, rest stops, and train stations. I know it isn’t perfect everywhere, but if you pack what you can, you can make it work!

4. Call ahead

If you are on a flight that will be serving meals, call the airline ahead of time. Most airlines will accommodate your health needs by offering meals that are lowfat, vegetarian, gluten-free, low sodium, etc. Or, opt out of airplane food all together by packing your own meal.

5. Stay mindful

Who wants indigestion, an upset stomach, or low energy when traveling? eating unhealthy foods while traveling may be easy, but it won’t make traveling fun. Keep this in mind when perusing your options.

6. Stay hydrated

It is important to stay hydrated while traveling, which is especially important on long flights. We feel most comfortable when humidity is around 50% – meaning the air is 50% saturated with water. Air in an airline cabin can fall to as low as 1% on long flights.

Dehydration can lead to headaches, muscle cramps, fatigue, and reduced concentration. Water and herbal teas are great ways to keep you going. If you are prone to upset stomachs or nausea, bring along a few herbal tea bags such as ginger or chamomile.

7. Smart restaurant choices

These can make or break a diet. Think about the same things you would if you were home:

Take a look at the menu online or ahead of time, if available.
Choose meat and fish items that are steamed, broiled, baked, grilled, poached or roasted.
Choose vegetables that have been steamed over sautéed or fried.
Ask for dressing accompaniments on the side such as dressing, sour cream, cheese, and mayonnaise.
Limit alcohol – I would suggest not doing this while you are in travel, especially if you are driving. If you have other modes and must partake, go for a glass of wine; lite beer; or a small a liquor with club soda, water, or on the rocks.

Hi, Your episiotomy sutures have opened up due to excess pressure pplied on that area. Sutured wounds takes about 3-6 months to resolve completely and gain back the original strength. Hence one should be very careful after surgery. Do not squat on the floor, do not use Indian toilets, avoid sex for at least 3 months and see that you do not suffer from constipation, as a result of which the pressure increases on the sutured area and the sutures may give up.

Health Benefits of Vegetables

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Health Benefits of Vegetables

People who eat fruit and #vegetables as part of their daily diet have a reduced risk of many chronic diseases. Usda's my plate encourages making half your plate fruits and vegetables.

Vegetables are an important part of healthy eating and provide a source of many #nutrients, including potassium, fiber, folate (folic acid) and vitamins a, e and c. Options like #broccoli, spinach, #tomatoes and #garlic provide additional benefits, making them a superfood!

Potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Dietary fiber from vegetables helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease.

Folate (folic acid) helps the body form healthy red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who may become pregnant and those in the first trimester of pregnancy need adequate folate to reduce the risk of neural tube defects and spina bifida during fetal development.

Hello sir, me and my friend did masturbation (deep fingering) on 4th april, as far as we remember we didn't touched pre-come or sperms while fingering. Her periods were due on 27 of april but didn't come. After a week and 2 weeks delay of period we did home urine pregnancy test but all result were negative. The very next day 15 day after period delay she had bleeding like normal periods but bleeding lasted for 1 day only. Now we are very tensed is she pregnant? she is still having back pain like periods only. Please give guidance to us.

Dont worry, the emotions and feelings play a role in body mechanism. There are things that get deeply rooted in the subconcious after doing things that are not socially acceptable, and this shows itself in physical aspect, just like the reflection in a mirror. We have a very good medicine which will make her periods normal again because period for one day only isn't good for health. It should be for at least from 2 to 5 days. You can consult me in private for the medicine.

This is very common during menses and called as premenstrual syndrome or pms. This occurs because of hormonal changes and mostly temporary. If this is persistent over the period of menses then it can be cured with 3 months course of medicines.

I had spotting after 2 months of conception. I consulted my gynaecologist and she has given me naturogest 200mg tablet to eat morning and night. After taking that tablet , exactly after 2 hours I am feeling dizzy. I don't have the spotting now. Should I continue this tablet ?

Hello Dear,Constipation is a condition in which a person experiences hard, dry, small in size, and difficulty in elimination of stool, it is also defined as having a bowel movement fewer than three times per week. Ayurveda says it is mainly caused by aggravation of Vata (air) though it can sometimes be caused by aggravation of pitta and kapha which leads to a low gastric fire (jathraagni).

Unwanted pill is to be used only in case of emergency situation and not as a routine. It has 5% failure rate and for 5 times chances of getting pregnant has gone up now to 25%. You should use oc pills like novelon as you r having regular intercourse which is 99.2% effective. As you took the pill 5 times, menses may get delayed this time.

Mind Your Posture

Physiotherapist,
Mind Your Posture

Did you know that your head weighs around 04 or 05 kg? all supported by some pretty small bones in your neck! a quick look at biomechanic of the body shows that when you are slouched over a phone at 45 degree angle. Its equivalent to placing 22kg of stress on the neck! this often translates into headache and pain down the back. Consider your posture!

Dill (Sowa) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - सोआ के फायदे और नुकसान

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Dill (Sowa) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - सोआ के फायदे और नुकसान

सोआ जिसका वैज्ञानिक नाम एनाथुम ग्रोवोलेंस है, का उपयोग प्राचीन काल से ही किया जाता रहा है. सोआ के विभिन्न रूपों (जैसे बीज, पत्तियां, जड़ें आदि) के फायदों का उपयोग मुख्य रूप से गठिया आदि बीमारियों में किया जाता है. सोआ के औषधीय फायदों के उपयोग का उल्लेख हमारे प्राचीन ग्रंथों में भी मिलता है. सोआ की सतह चिकनी होती है. इस पर पीले रंग के फुल और अंडाकार फल होता है. सोआ के पौधे एशिया अफ्रीका और अन्य उष्णकटिबंधीय देशों में उगाए जाते हैं. आइए अब सुबह के फायदे और नुकसान को विस्तार से समझने की कोशिश करते हैं.

1. नींद में उपयोगी
कई लोगों को नींद ना आने की बीमारी होती है. इसमें भी सुबह काफी सहायक हो साबित होता है. एक कप पानी में दो चम्मच सुबह को डाल कर पानी को उबालने से बने काढ़े को छानकर रोजाना इसका इस्तेमाल करने से नींद न आने की समस्या दूर होती है.
2. गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए
सोआ, गर्भवती महिलाओं और स्तनपान कराने वाली माताओं के लिए भी कई तरीके से फायदेमंद साबित होता है. स्तनपान के दौरान यह दूध की मात्रा बढ़ाने के साथ साथ शुरुआती ओवयूलेशन को भी रोकने में सहायक होता है.
3. पाचन में मददगार
पाचन तंत्र के सुधार के लिए भी सोआ का उपयोग किया जाता है. पाचन तंत्र की खराबी की वजह से कब्ज आदि भी हो जाता है. इसके अलावा ये एसिडिटी, हिचकी, दस्त और कोलिक आदि में भी काफी राहत पहुंचाता है.
4. फोड़े फुंसी के उपचार में
छोटे-मोटे फोड़े फुंसी होना आम बात है. जब भी आपको फोड़ा फुंसी हो तो ताजी सोआ की पत्तियों से बना पेस्ट प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर लगाएं. आप सुबह का उपयोग हल्दी पाउडर के साथ करेंगे तो इससे अल्सर में भी फायदा होता है. सुबह के बीज को तिल के साथ मिलाकर जोड़ों पर भी लगा सकते हैं.
5. हड्डियों के विकास में
हड्डियों में भी कई तरह की समस्याओं को दूर करने के लिए सुबह का उपयोग किया जाता है. क्योंकि सोआ, कैल्शियम से भरपूर होता है. इसलिए सोआ ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस में आपकी मदद कर सकता है. घायल व्यक्ति भी अपनी हड्डियों पर सुबह के इस्तेमाल से लाभ प्राप्त कर सकता है.
6. उच्च रक्त चाप में
उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित मरीजों को सोआ और मेथी के बीजों की एक समान मात्रा का मिश्रण बनाकर इसके पाउडर का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए. सोआ और मेथी के बीजों से बने पाउडर को दिन में दो बार दो चम्मच एक गिलास पानी के साथ लेने से उच्च रक्तचाप में लाभ मिलता है.
7. कैंसर के उपचार में
सोआ में पाए जाने वाले तत्व फ्लेवोनॉयड और मोनोटेर्पेनेस, आपको कैंसर से लड़ने में भी आपकी मदद करते हैं. इसके अलावा सोआ में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट भी होते हैं जो की फ्री रेडिकल्स से लड़ने का काम करते हैं. इस प्रकार सुबह में पाए जाने वाले पदार्थों में से कई कैसर रोधी भी होते हैं.
8. शुगर के उपचार में
शुगर के मरीजों के लिए भी सोआ के फायदे महत्वपूर्ण साबित होते हैं. क्योंकि सोआ में इंसुलिन के स्तर को प्रभावित करने की क्षमता होती है. कई शोधों में यह भी देखा गया है कि सोआ रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को भी घटाता है. विशेष रुप से टाइप वन वाले शुगर पीड़ित सुबह से काफी राहत पा सकते हैं.
9. पीरियड्स के दौरान
पीरियड्स के दौरान महिलाओं को कई तरह की परेशानियों का सामना करना पड़ता है. सोआ की सहायता से पीरियड्स के दौरान शरीर में ऐंठन आदि समस्याओं को दूर करता है. इस दौरान ज्यादा रक्तस्त्राव होने पर भी ये सहायक होता है.
10. प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र की मजबूती के लिए
प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र से संबंधित कई तरह की समस्याओं से निपटने में भी सोआ की भूमिका देखि गई है. सोआ, अतिसंवेदनशीलता, सक्रियता, घबराहट आदि के उपचार में भी बहुत महत्वपूर्ण साबित होता है. यह हिचकी को शांत करने और एलर्जी में भी इस्तेमाल किया जाता है.

सोआ के नुकसान
1. मात्रा में सुबह के सेवन से कितनी वृद्धि हो सकती है इसलिए इसे उचित मात्रा में इस्तेमाल करें.
2. तो आप इसे अन्य हल्के और पत्तेदार सब्जियों के साथ मिलाकर उपयोग में ला सकते हैं.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your sister. Well, given the radiological findings, its advisable to consult a breast specialist for correlation first. He/ she is likely to recommend further diagnostics including an FNAC/ biopsy as would deem appropriate before deciding on the way forward. For the time being, she may apply a little bit of hot/ cold treatment that may help alleviate her pain. Keep diet and lifestyle streamlined, and stay well hydrated. You can connect with the diagnostics for further integrated traction (alternative medicine) as would be contextually required in her case. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

It’s pretty common to start obsessing after just a month or two of trying to conceive without success. If there’s a physiological reason you’re not conceiving you can start exploring your options, and if the tests come back normal you can relax, but since its been 4 years of married life, Fertility starts to decline at this point, and by discovering any problems early you can avoid wasting time. So would suggest you to think of IUI or IVF.
