Hi lybrate user, you can use contraceptive pills or condom. But pills will be better option. As condom has high failure rate as compared to pill

Chewing Your Food Properly - Why it is Important?

Chewing Your Food Properly - Why it is Important?

You probably do not think much about chewing while eating your food. Chewing is indeed important for your health. Well, this simple behaviour of chewing your food properly helps in proper digestion, absorption of essential nutrients and keeps several diseases at bay. When you chew your food properly, your body gives out digestive enzymes which break the large particles into smaller ones. Smaller particles are easy for you to digest.

If your food is not properly digested you can suffer from many digestive issues like bloating, stomach pain, indigestion, headache, constipation and also exhaustion. The number of times you are actually supposed to chew your food depends on the type of food you are eating. Softer food items break down easily and are also easy to digest. You should at least chew these food products 5-10 times before swallowing. Dense food takes time to break down and hence is difficult to digest. You should chew them about 30 times before swallowing. You can also take the package for Eating Right.

The benefits of chewing your food properly

  1. Easy digestion and exposure to saliva: Chewing your food for a longer time helps your food to come into direct contact with your saliva. The saliva helps to lubricate your food, as a result the food goes down easily through the oesophagus. Digestive enzymes present in your saliva also make the process of digestion easier.
  2. Chewing is good for your teeth: Chewing can be a good workout for your gums. It keeps your teeth bones stronger. The saliva released clears any food particles stuck inside your mouth, there is less plaque build-up and it also prevents tooth decay.
  3. Chewing helps to keep weight under check: To chew food properly you must eat consciously and when you slow down, you are instantly eating less. This simple process prevents you from overeating and helps you to avoid any excess weight gain.
  4. Chewing helps to prevent any kind of bacterial growth: Your food most of the time contains bacteria and saliva helps in killing some of them. So if you are eating longer and slower, it gets time to kill the bacteria which might affect your digestive process.
  5. Chewing gives you time to taste and enjoy your food: Properly chewing every morsel of your food lets you taste and enjoy the food you are eating which helps you in staying fit and healthy.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician and ask a free question.

I have a 2.5"thyroid. For last one year I am getting excessively heavy periods with clots and too much pain. In one report two months ago, chronic cervicitis was revealed. I also got urine infection frequently especially post condition.In urine test calcium oxalate was found in little amount. But when I got clinically checked in safdarjung, doctor said my cervix is healthy. I have been advised hysteroscopy and DNC to get rid of this problem. But I don't want hysteroscopy. But heavy periods and pain is troubling me a lot. Please suggest some medicine.

Homeopath, Secunderabad
It can be due to harmonal imbalance. May be premenopausal symptoms. You can use homeopathy as it is safe and brings in overall balance in the body. It requires a detailed case history I begin homeopathy .You can get in touch with me for a private consultation for further details. In the meanwhile adapt a healthy life style which includes eating a wholesome diet, eat fruits and vegetables regularly. Exercise 1 hour daily (30 mins of yoga would bring harmony in the mind and body!) and sleep for minimum 6-8 hrs daily.

Dear Dr. I am 28 year old women I have 2 child. Im pregnant from 36 days I used pregnancy kit and result is positive. I don't want child at this time. Please suggest a medicine for safe abortion.

Dear lybrate-user, As you are pregnant by just 5 weeks, you can safely get pregnancy termination using tablets. However before that, it is mandatory to get a scan done to confirm the age of the pregnancy and ensure that the pregnancy is in the womb (Uterus) and not outside the womb (ectopic pregnancy). Post scan you can get the necessary medicines. If you want to avoid pregnancy in the future, you can opt for long term contraceptive options like Copper T or permanent contraception like tubectomy. Hope this helps. Good luck. #HopeHealthHappiness.

Tip for Healthy Teeth
For healthier teeth, flossing daily in a sawing motion is highly recommended. Take the floss to the point where the teeth meet the gums.

Hi Lyberate user. Its unlikely that you are pregnant if there has been no intercourse after feb incident. Once you have a period after a an episode of intercourse its unlikely to be pregnant. However if you have been sexually active after that its possible that you might be pregnant. Please do a home pregnancy test and confirm.

There are many reasons of not having periods. Pregnancy test is negative. So, rest assured. Consult gynecologist to take drugs for artificial mens and at the same time, start treatment for not having mens by diagnosing the cause.

coffee is worst for diabetics
coffee is worst for diabetics:

Blended coffees

Blended coffees that are laced with syrup, sugar, whipped cream, and other toppings can have as many calories and fat grams as a milkshake, making them a poor choice for those with diabetes. A 16-ounce frappuccino at starbucks, for instance, can contain 500 calories, 98 grams of carbs, and 9 grams of fat. You may consider a treat such as this" just coffee" but the blended versions can send blood glucose soaring.

Have this instead: ask for the smaller, 12-oz light or non-fat versions, which range from 60 to 200 calories, making it a much lower-calorie, lower-sugar substitute" the lighter version won't drive blood sugars sky high, especially if you take a walk afterward" ideally, black coffee is best.
