10 Reasons To Give Mushroom Coffee A Try

10 Reasons To Give Mushroom Coffee A Try

10 reasons to give mushroom coffee a try

1. Mushroom coffee is less acidic
Most coffee contains natural acids, which may cause heartburn and stomach upset. For those who suffer but don’t want to give up drinking their morning cup of java, switching to a low-acid coffee like mushroom coffee is a great alternative. But even those who don’t suffer from those problems can benefit, as better health often begins by helping the body become more alkaline. The acid-alkaline balance is important since many functions in the body occur only at a certain level of acidity or alkalinity. Many enzymes and chemical reactions in the body work best at a particular ph.

If you want to boost your energy naturally and even slow down the aging process, an alkaline diet is the way to go. That’s because a more acidic diet tends to take a toll on our bones and muscles the older we get. As reported by natural news, an analysis by the national institutes of health explained, “as we age, there is a loss of muscle mass, which may predispose to falls and fractures. A three-year study looking at a diet rich in potassium, such as fruits and vegetables, as well as a reduced acid load, resulted in the preservation of muscle mass in older men and women.”

2. You can enjoy your coffee in the afternoon without concern about staying awake all night

Because there is only a minimal amount of caffeine in mushroom coffee, you can enjoy a cup in the afternoon or evening without having to worry about being kept awake all night. In fact, drinking mushroom coffee is likely to encourage an even better night’s rest. It’s even been used to treat insomnia, rather than contributing to it. A study by scientists at china’s peking university in china published in february 2012 in the journal of ethnopharmacology found that ganoderma lucidum (reishi) extract induced sleep in rats that moved around freely in the test environment.

Drinking mushroom coffee can also help alleviate chronic fatigue disease, a condition that makes one feel exhausted nearly all the time.

3. Boost your immune system

On its own, coffee is loaded with antioxidants, but a mushroom coffee adds even more, providing a super-boost to your immune system. Reishi’s well-known effects for strengthening the immune system have been proven in a number of scientific studies, including a randomized, double-blind study published in the january 2009 issue of phytotherapy research. The researchers found significant improvements in the immune cell counts of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. They noted that ganoderma lucidum improved immune function, improving patients’ ability to fight off cancer, as well as any secondary infections that could compromise their treatment and their health.

4. Lower cholesterol

Mushroom coffee may even help lower overall cholesterol, thereby, improving cardiovascular health. By signaling the liver to kick in production, the swiss nestle research center found that the herb was a “renowned medicinal species” and “inhibited cholesterol synthesis” in a 2005 study.

5. Promoting weight loss

Drinking mushroom coffee may help promote weight loss in a number of ways. In addition to being part of an alkaline diet, which naturally helps one to shed pounds, it further assists by increasing the body’s metabolism. According to the memorial sloan-kettering cancer center, ganoderma, in particular, contains active properties that can increase your metabolic rate after consumption. A higher metabolism means that your body uses more energy to digest food more efficiently, and as that energy is fuelled by breaking down fat deposits and calories in your body, it can lead to weight loss.

6. Healthier cardiovascular system

In addition to improving the health of your cardiovascular system by lowering cholesterol, mushroom coffee supports cardiovascular health by promoting blood flow while lowering oxygen consumption to the heart, as plaque can cause an early death by blocking and clogging artery walls.

7. Liver protection

Studies have found that patients with hepatitis b have improved significantly within just a month after taking reishi, one of the primary mushrooms used in mushroom coffee. After patients with elevated liver enzymes and bilirubin took the mushroom for three months, all of their values were within a healthy range, revealing that mushroom coffee may serve as a very effective liver protectant.

8. Say goodbye to urinary tract infections
Normally caused by bacteria, urinary tract infections come with very uncomfortable symptoms like cramps in the lower abdomen, painful and frequent urination, and fever. The university of maryland medical center reports that taking 150 to 300 milligrams of reishi extract two to three times per day may relieve urinary tract infections, a much welcome bit of news for those that suffer from them frequently.

9. Lowering the risk of parkinson’s disease
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder that makes it difficult to walk, balance and coordinate the body, an incurable condition that no one would wish on their worst enemy, but research has found that drinking mushroom coffee, may help to fight this disease. A study published. It may also protect against other degenerative disorders, like alzheimer’s disease.

10. Anti-inflammatory properties

Speaking of anti-inflammatory properties, laboratory tests have shown that bioactive compounds derived from reishi and other mushrooms offer powerful anti-inflammatory properties, as well as anti-tumor, anti-aging and immuno-modulatory properties. Several reishi-derived substances are also antibacterial and antiviral, exerting direct inhibitory actions against human herpes viruses, the influenza virus, and even hiv.

What this means is that, in addition to protecting against parkinson’s, maintaining a proper level of inflammation through diet and lifestyle, including consuming anti-inflammatory foods and beverages like mushroom coffee, means a lower risk of developing other diseases too. 

Inflammation plays a very large part in the body’s health. When the immune system overreaches and starts attacking healthy body tissues, an overabundance of inflammation results, causing conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, irritable bowel, and more. Even for diseases that aren’t autoimmune, it tends to play a part, as the body is forced to continuously heal tissues in a given area.

Benefits Of Cow Urine in hindi -  गौ-मूत्र के लाभ

गौमूत्र का भारतीयों के लिए प्राचीन समय से ही बहुत महत्वपूर्ण रहा है। भारत के हिन्दू सभ्यता में गाय की पूजा की जाती है और माना जाता है कि गाय में 36 करोड़ देवी देवताओं का निवास होता है। गाय के दूध के फायदों के बारे में तो आपने सुना भी होगा और जानते भी होंगे लेकिन क्या आप गौमूत्र से होने वाले स्वास्थ्य लाभ के बारे में जानते हैं ? नहीं।। तो कोई बात नहीं, अब जान जाइए की  होते हैं गौमूत्र से लाभ कितने लाभ।

वैसे तो गाय के गोबर और मूत्र को उसके शरीर का वेस्ट मटेरियल कहा जाता है, लेकिन यह हमें कई तरह की बीमारियों से बचा सकता है। गौमूत्र से हमें कई तरह के फायदे मिलते हैं और न केवल आपका स्वास्थ्य ठीक रहता है बल्कि ये आपको कई बीमारियों जैसे डायबिटीज, हार्ट की परेशानी, कैंसर जैसी खतरनाक बीमारियों से बचने में सहायक साबित हो सकता है। गौमूत्र से आप अपने आप को फिट रख सकते हैं। और यह खून साफ करने में भी मदद करता है। इसके अलावा ये हमारे शरीर और दिमाग के लिए बहुत फायदेमंद होता है, और कई तरह के चर्म रोग से बचने में भी सहायक साबित होता है।
आयुर्वेद के अलावा मॉडर्न मेडिकल साइंस में भी गौमूत्र पर की गई रिसर्च ने भी इसके हेल्थ बेनिफिट्स को साबित किया है। हालिया रिसर्च में गौमूत्र को कई सीरियस और जनरल बीमारियों के लिए फायदेमंद बताया गया है। आयुर्वेद में गौमूत्र का प्रयोग कई बीमारियों के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है। वैसे तो गौमूत्र अपने आप में एक दवा की तरह है। मगर इसमें कुछ और जड़ी बूटियां मिलाकर दी जाएं तो इसका असर कई गुना बढ़ जाता है। गोमूत्र में कार्बोलिक एसिड, यूरिया, फास्फेट, यूरिक एसिड, पोटैशियम और सोडियम होता है । जब गाय का दूध देने वाला महिना होता है, तब उसके मूत्र में लेक्टोजन रहता है, जो ह्दय और मस्तिष्क के विकारों के लिए फायदेमंद होता है।

एक खास बात गोमूत्र हमेशा स्वस्थ देशी गाय का ही लिया जाना चाहिए और गोमूत्र को हमेशा निश्चित तापमान पर रखा जाना चाहिए न अधिक गर्म और न अधिक ठंडा। गोमूत्र का कितना सेवन करना चाहिए यह मौसम पर निर्भर है। इसकी प्रकृति कुछ गर्म होती है इसीलिए गर्मियों में इसकी मात्रा कम लेनी चाहिए। चलिए अब जानते है गौमूत्र से होने वाले कुछ खास फायदों की जिसके सेवन से आप एक सेहतमंद जीवन व्यतीत कर सकते हैं।

गौमूत्र के फायदे

गौमूत्र में कैसर को रोकने वाली ‘करक्यूमिन‘ पायी जाती है।कैंसर की चिकित्सा में रेडियो एक्टिव एलिमेन्ट प्रयोग में लाए जाते है। गौमूत्र में विद्यमान सोडियम, पोटेशियम, मैग्नेशियम, फास्फोरस, सल्फर आदि में से कुछ लवण विघटित होकर रेडियो एलिमेन्ट की तरह कार्य करने लगते है और कैंसर की अनियन्त्रित वृद्धि पर तुरन्त नियंत्रण करते है। कैंसर कोशिकाओं को नष्ट करते है। अर्क आँपरेशन के बाद बची कैंसर कोशिकाओं को भी नष्ट करता है। यानी गौमूत्र में कैसर बीमारी को दूर करने की शक्ति समाहित है। कैंसर के मरीज के लिए काली रंग की गाय का गौमूत्र लेना चाहिए, और ध्यान रखना चाहिए गाय गर्भवती ना हो, इसके लिए बेस्ट है गाय की बछड़ी या बछड़े का गौ मूत्र लिया जाए।
2. स्किन प्रॉब्लम
कई बार शरीर पर सफेद दाग या कुष्ठ हो जाता है। ऐसी स्थिति में, बावची/बाकुची को गोमूत्र में मिलाकर पीस लें और इसे सफेद दागों पर रात्रि के समय लगाएं और सुबह इसे गौमूत्र से ही धोएं। ऐसा प्रतिदिन करने से कुछ दिनों में दाग बिल्कुल ठीक हो जाएँगे। अगर शरीर में अत्यधिक खुजली होती हो तो जीरा में गौमूत्र मिलाकर इसके लेप को शरीर पर लगाना चाहिए। इससे भी खाज-खुजली दूर होती है। गौमूत्र अन्य त्वचा की बीमारियों जैसे एक्जिमा, सोरायसिस आदि में भी फायदेमंद है। 
3. वज़न कम करने में सहायक

APHRODISIAC FOODS FOR WOMEN

Diploma in Paediatrics, MBBS
Sexologist, Dehradun

Natural Aphrodisiacs for Your Female Libido

Aphrodisiacs are defined as foods, drinks or drugs that stimulate sexual desire. These six natural aphrodisiacs have been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda practices. Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India that focuses on making the right choices for your body and mind. Try these Ayurvedic recommendations in your daily regimen to bring the heat back!

Cacao 

Raw cacao nibs are a tasty super food with many benefits, including aphrodisiac properties. Cacao contains anandamide, which is known as the bliss molecule. It is packed with healthful magnesium, phosphorous, antioxidants, and libido-enhancing arginines and methylxanthines. If that is not enough to make your swap your semi-sweet chocolate chips for cacao in your favorite recipes, it also contains phenylethylamine, known as the love chemical, that releases dopamine in your brain during sex!

Fenugreek

Another tasty way to boost libido is the seed of this plant. Fenugreek was used as an aphrodisiac by ancient peoples in Rome, Egypt, and Greece. Its taste is a bit like maple syrup or butterscotch and is used to flavor foods such as imitation maple syrup and in spice blends such as Ethiopian berbere. In India, its leaves are eaten as a vegetable. Used for centuries by women and men to increase sex drive, it also promotes healthy breast tissue and improves milk production in lactating women. The key is its phytoestrogens. Some say this natural supplement can increase breast size. Whether or not it can give you fuller breasts, it is an easy safe way to try to boost libido or bra size.

Warming Spices

Many Ayurveda practices for boosting libido and metabolism are about increasing the heat of your diet. Cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg are warming herbs that increase blood flow in the abdominal and pelvic regions. They are said to stimulate your appetite for both food and sex. You can take these in capsule form, but they are easy to add to many recipes, especially hot drinks like tea. Or try pickled ginger. The blood-pumping effects of these delicious spices increase vaginal moisture and intensify sexual pleasure.

Shatavari

Also called Shatavri, Satavar or Shatamull, it is an adaptogenic herb that has been used as a female rejuvenation tonic in India for centuries. It strengthens and tones the reproductive system, provides relief from menstrual and menopausal imbalances, and is an effective remedy for PMS. Shatavari is traditionally called, she who has 1,000 husbands, and is thought to increase a woman's libido to give her the strength and desire to have 1,000 husbands!

Dates

This exotic, moist fruit adds sweetness and richness to many recipes and to your love life. In Arabic cultures, a traditional aphrodisiac is concocted by mixing dates with milk and cinnamon This super fruit contains fiber and many essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals for overall well-being. And the healthier you are, the more energy and interest you will have for romance.

Shilajit

During warmer summer months in the high altitudes of the Himalayas, this tar-like mineral compound seeps from the rocks. Ayurvedic practitioners have used shilajit as a natural supplement for millennia. As with many ancient things, it is known by many names and spellings including shilajeet, silajit, mumio, mumiyo, mumijo, mineral pitch, asphaltum, and more. Users of shilajit claim increased stamina for both exercise and sexual activity. It has been used as an aphrodisiac and a fertility treatment for both women and men. While this mineral is harder to come by than other natural supplements, it is available. Look for the highest grade shilajit from the Himalayas because only it has the desired properties. Avoid extracts, powders and liquids, look for it in its resin form.

Give these a try for spicing up your meals and your love life. Remember to slow down to devote time to yourself and to making these small changes to add natural aphrodisiacs to your diet. Savor the moments of your life and you will find a greater sense of fulfilment in everything you do. Now, where is my cacao coconut ball recipe?

Vaginal Bleeding During Early Pregnancy

EMDR, FRCOG (LONDON) (Fellow of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), MFSRH , Diploma in psychosexual therapy, Medical diploma in clinical Hypnosis, Diploma in Evidence Based Healthcare, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Pune
Vaginal Bleeding During Early Pregnancy

During the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, 20 to 30% of women have vaginal bleeding. In about half of these women, the pregnancy ends in a miscarriage. If miscarriage does not occur immediately, problems later in the pregnancy are more likely. For example, the baby's birth weight may be low, or the baby may be born early (preterm birth), be born dead (stillbirth), or die during or shortly after birth. If bleeding is profuse, blood pressure may become dangerously low, resulting in shock.

The amount of bleeding can range from spots of blood to a massive amount. Passing large amounts of blood is always a concern, but spotting or mild bleeding may also indicate a serious disorder.

The most common cause is a miscarriage. There are different degrees of miscarriage (also called spontaneous abortion). A miscarriage may be possible or certain to occur (inevitable abortion). All of the contents of the uterus may be expelled or not (incomplete abortion). The contents of the uterus may be infected before, during, or after the miscarriage (septic abortion). The fetus may die in the uterus and remain there (missed abortion). Any type of miscarriage can cause vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy.

The most dangerous cause of vaginal bleeding is rupture of an abnormally located (ectopic) pregnancy - one that is not in its usual place in the uterus - for example, one that is in a fallopian tube.

Another possibly dangerous but less common cause is rupture of corpus luteum cyst. After an egg is released, the structure that released it (the corpus luteum) may fill with fluid or blood instead of breaking down and disappearing as it usually does. If an ectopic pregnancy or a corpus luteum cyst ruptures, bleeding may be profuse, leading to shock.

Warning signs:

In pregnant women with vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy, the following symptoms are cause for concern:

  1. Fainting, light-headedness, or a racing heart—symptoms that suggest very low blood pressure
  2. Loss of large amounts of blood or blood that contains tissue or large clots
  3. Severe abdominal pain that worsens when the woman moves or changes positions
  4. Fever, chills, and a vaginal discharge that contains pus mixed with the blood

When to see a doctor: Women with warning signs should see a doctor immediately. Women without warning signs should see a doctor within 48 to 72 hours.

Well I guess you are not considering tubectome/vasectomy for one time solution. All contraceptive pills are basically synthetic hormones.Sadly all of themhave hosts of side-effects, esp when taken regularly.. Meanwhile if you know about the safe periods..you can indulge in it without contracptive then 1st to 7 th day and 21 st to last day of her menstrual cycle.

Little bit of discharge sometimes is normal but if there is itching or foul smell then its due to infection. So keep clean and dry the vaginal region and avoid fried and oily foods for white discharge problem. Get ultrasound of lower abdomen and thyroid test done for irregular menses.

Hello, for the very first time I performed cunnilingus on my girlfriend last week. I kept doing it for 30 mins. We did not do intercourse. Is there chance I could get STI infection from just doing oral sex alone ?

Of course you can get an infection by oral sex, though chances are less. The mucous membrane in mouth has a very rich blood supply. If you have any cut or laceration the risk of getting infection increases.

The following lifestyle factors can also upset your balance of hormones and cause irregular bleeding: • extreme weight loss or weight gain • excessive exercise • stress -------------------------------------- Polycystic ovary syndrome--------- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of PCOS are irregular or light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with PCOS, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. The production of hormones may also be unbalanced, and you could have higher levels of testosterone than normal. Testosterone is a male hormone that women usually have a small amount of. --------------------------- Thyroid disorders------------------------------- A thyroid disorder is another possible, but rare, cause of irregular periods. The thyroid gland, found in the neck, produces hormones that maintain the body's metabolism (the chemical processes your body uses to turn food into energy). Your Gynae may test for a thyroid problem by taking a blood test to check levels of thyroid hormones in your blood. ----------------------

Five Benefits Of Meditation

Regular meditation enables us to lead a healthy and happy life.

1. It is a path of self-discipline wherein one learns to practice self-control, detachment from worldly things, concentration to achieve self-realisation.
2. Regular practice of meditation naturally brings about a healthy lifestyle, as a pure way of life, with moderation in diet, and good habits that contribute to physical and mental well-being.
3. Realisation that mere possession of material beings does not bring about happiness: not accumulating also means not holding onto other people. When we let go of something or someone, we set ourselves free from dependence or attachment. This helps one to remain light and capable of handling so called unbelievably difficult situations. 
4. Most of the rewards stem from the change in thinking, attitudes and emotions
5. Meditation has been clinically proven to relieve chronic pain, reduce stress, slow ageing, lower blood pressure, improve heart and lung function, reduce depression, and improve sleep.
5. It has been found to increase one’s focus and attention, improve the ability to multitask, and enhance memory, all of which boosts productivity.
