Health Benefits Of Olive Oil!

Diploma in Diet n Nutrition, BHMS
Health Benefits Of Olive Oil!

7 reasons why olive oil is so good for you!

Olive oil also known as ‘jaitoon ka tel’ is an essential fruit oil with its origins being mainly in the mediterranean regions. It is utilized for cooking purposes, developing cosmetic products and soaps, for medicinal purposes and as pharmaceutical supplements. The various types of olive oil are virgin olive oil, extra virgin olive oil and pure olive oil. Apart from being a cooking medium, olive oil also has several unique health benefits. Here are some of them:

1. Helps prevent alzheimer’s

Studies have shown that oleocanthal, a polyphenol found in extra virgin olive oil, reduces cognitive decline that comes with ageing including alzheimer’s disease. Polyphenols – powerful antioxidants found in extra virgin olive oil – also help to combat the oxidative stress associated with ageing.

2. Regulates blood sugar levels

Eating extra virgin olive oil as part of a balanced diet may help prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Extra virgin olive oil helps regulate and balance our insulin levels so that there are no sugar spikes.

3. Moisturizes the skin

Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and aggravate a current skin condition, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin while providing a cleansing effect. Try using olive oil at night as a substitute for your regular moisturizer. Apply the oil to your face and neck. Gently pat the skin with a tissue to wipe away any excess oil.

4. Fights ageing

Olive oil contains 3 major antioxidants – vitamin e, polyphenols and phytosterols. Antioxidants when applied topically help protect the skin from premature skin ageing. Vitamin e partly accounts for the anti-ageing benefits of olive oil because it helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light. Hydroxytyrosol, a rather raw compound found in olive oil also prevents free radical damage to the skin.

5. Keeps blood pressure in check

Just as monosaturated fats (mufa’s) can look after the health of your heart, monosaturated fats found in olive oil also contain high amounts of an essential fatty acid (efa) called omega3. Omega3 and mufa keep your heart healthy by helping to lower blood pressure. It is called efa because the body cannot make it by itself and therefore we must get it from food sources.

6. Prevents osteoporosis

There is strong evidence that olive oil helps improve the amount of calcium in the blood which can have a positive effect on bone density, so it may prevent osteoporosis from developing. Olive oil appears to be particularly beneficial when combined with omega3 fatty acids.

7. Helps prevent strokes

Stroke is caused by a disturbance of blood flow to the brain, either due to a blood clot or bleeding. In developed nations, stroke is the second most common cause of death, right after heart disease. After much research olive oil was found to be the only source of mono-saturated fat associated with a reduced risk of stroke and heart disease.

Add olive oil to your diet to reap the many health benefits. Extra virgin olive – the oil from the first pressing of the olive fruit is green and has a full bodied flavour, is best consumed raw, as dressing for salads and dishes, in dips raw, as heating the oil can reduce its benefits. For cooking use pure olive oil which is milder in taste and yellow in colour.

Hi to gain weight you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.

Add more calorie dense foods like eggs, Paneer, chicken, fish, nuts in your diet to maintain your BMR. This will help you to feel better and will not make you lethargic or low. Make sure that you incorporate these sources every 2 hours in your daily routine. Don't forget to add strength training to gain more muscles rather than fat.

What Are Drug Eruptions? Ways to Deal With It?

What Are Drug Eruptions? Ways to Deal With It?

Drug eruptions are mild to severe skin conditions, where the skin shows some form of drug induced adverse reaction, which may be visible or not visible, but causes discomfort, pain, visible lesions and hives or rashes, etc. on the patient's body or some areas of the skin. This is caused when a drug given, for some reason, causes side effect or extra reaction. Often drug reactions are not serious or fatal except in some cases and can be controlled once the causative drug is withdrawn from administration. 

Types of drug eruptions:
The common drug eruption types are as follows:
Type 1- Urticaria, anaphylaxis, or angio-oedema, which happens due to mediation of IgE and protein such as insulin.
Type 2- Purpura and haemolysis induced by a cytotoxic reaction for the administration of sulfonamides, penicillin, rifampin and cephalosporins.
Type 3- Due to the action of sulfonamides, salicylates, and chlorpromazine a complicated reaction develops resulting in serum sickness, vasculitis and urticaria.
Type 4- These reactions, which are caused by the hypersensitivity of cells and come in a delay cause photoallergic reactions, contact dermatitis, or exanthematous reactions. They are most common types of reactions and occur when the drug is applied topically. 

All of these types show how drugs can cause several different types of reactions. Though eruptions are visible on skin, some discomforts are not visible, and then it takes time for diagnosis. However, diagnosis of the reason behind drug eruptions has to be done as soon as possible to avoid further serious types of reactions like anaphylaxis and angioedema. 

Managing drug eruptions
Management of drug eruptions has to be tactful. Often drugs are taken by patients who have a lot of problems, or sickness, and are not fully fit. Moreover, they take not just one drug, but a bunch of drugs for several problems in the body. Therefore, to understand which drug caused the problem and discontinue that one is often a challenge.  However, it has been seen that discontinuing the affecting drug really helps to get the eruptions eliminated after some time. However, to stop a drug when it is most needed for a certain problem or cure and that too by diagnosing the exact drug takes some time and needs experimentation from the medical caregiver or doctor.

While the drug is still continued, treatment with antihistamines, epinephrine and corticosteroids is done to relieve the patient from the pain and discomfort. If antibiotics are given to the patient, they are stopped to see how the body reacts. To avoid an eruption sometimes premedication can be done to soothe the eruptions in case of patients with a drug eruption history.

Ways to Prevent Second - Hand Smoke Damages

FSCAI (Int Card), FACC (Card), FACP (Int Medicine), MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Ways to Prevent Second - Hand Smoke Damages

Second-hand smoke is highly damaging, and in fact sometimes it causes more damage than first hand smoke. The harmful chemicals and particles inhaled in second-hand smoke can accumulate inside your body, and cause long term damages.

What gets damaged due to second-hand smoke?

Damages can happen to the respiratory system, heart, brain, skin and eyes. Items like ammonia, butane, Cyanide, Polonium, Carbon monoxide, chromium and formaldehyde, which are all harmful for the human body are there in the smoke, and these can inhibit many body functions, damage the quality of blood and its oxygen intake power, and create overall havoc to health when exposed to second-hand smoke for a long time.

How to keep away damaging second-hand smoke sources from you?

Once the damage is done, there is as such nothing you may do to revert it back. However, if you try to make a conscious effort to keep yourself, family and children away from the sources of second-hand smoke, then this is the best preventive measure you may take. Let’s look at the various preventive measures you should take to keep yourself away from second-hand smoke and its damage.

  1. The most effective and best way to complete prevention is to quit smoking. Do not smoke, and also advise other family members to quit. This can give you the best results.

  2. Quitting takes time and determination. Hence, if you are into the phase of quitting, and have lessened smoking, you still need to go out of the house or room to smoke.

  3. Keeping items around the room that are bathed with second-hand smoke is also dangerous, as they all have particles of pollute hanging or clinging on to them. The room curtains, cushions, carpets, upholstery and sheets, and mainly the air, all have suspended particles of the smoke which are retained for days. Try steam cleaning or vacuum cleaning to clear them off. Try using an air purifier.

  4. If you want to make sure that none of the family members start smoking, then keep cigars and cigarettes out of the reach of children and others. If they get one, they may want to experiment, thus ending up being an addict. Again, one member who has left smoking may start again if an instigating factor works.

  5. Avoid places where public smoking is encouraged.

  6. Put a board that smoking is prohibited in your home and tell guests about the rules.

These are some of the preventive measures you have to take in order to stay away from the dangerous consequences of second hand smoking.

My weight is 60kg I need to reduce it. I am doing regular exercises bug probably thts nt working really good.
Lybrate-user first you need to figure out what is creating a hindrance for you, that you are not able to reduce weight. Maintain a diary of your weight. Check your weight every morning, empty stomach. And calculate it accordingly. If you are not able to reduce with the help of exercise, try to maintain some diet balancing as well. After your exercise don't take much of carbs like parathas, chesse sandwiches, fried things etc. Take more of beverages, like coconut water, fresh lime water, vegetable juice etc. Take minimum 10 glasses of water everyday. Start taking frequent meals at the interval of 2 hours. Likewise after your breakfast make a schedule of mid meal like any fruit or so. Than lunch as per your last meal and so on. Basic idea is to take frequent meals at every 2 hours of interval. Exercise you can choose that should help you to boost up your metabolism rate, as you are too young, so boosting your metabolism will help you to reduce weight. Like you can start with brisk walk, aerobics, jog etc.

Please suggest me weight gaining deit Trying to gain weight from many years but couldn't able to gain it.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Please suggest me weight gaining deit
Trying to gain weight from many years but couldn't able to gain it.
Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3 months. Revert.

What Does Neck and Shoulder Pain Indicate?

Pain Management Specialist, Delhi
What Does Neck and Shoulder Pain Indicate?

What does neck and shoulder pain indicate?

The stabbing pain that you experience around the neck and shoulder region should never be ignored as they may indicate health problems that require medical attention. There are certain points that you need to keep in mind the if you experience prolonged pain in these areas of the body.

1. Neck injury? your neck and shoulder pain should be seen as a warning sign that you need to take a look at the neck injury you may have sustained during a rear-end automobile accident. More specifically, whiplash injuries that happen when the head experiences a sudden backward and forward jerk, straining the tissues of the neck. 

2. Pain in these areas of the body could indicate abnormalities in the vertebrae of your neck such as herniated disc, causing added pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord.

3. Your neck and shoulder pain complaint may also point towards muscle strains. Lifestyle factors like working long hours in front of laptops or desktops leave you with no time and zero energy to exercise, resulting in serious neck and shoulder pains.

4. Your neck and shoulder pain may also indicate the problem of cervical spondylosis. This is a degenerative disc disease, which is characterised by severe pain that originates from the neck and radiates till the shoulders.

5. Even heart problems, such as a heart attack can cause pain in the shoulder and the neck. When this happens, the condition is known as referred pain.

6. Adopting an improper body posture during lifting of heavy materials can induce pain in your body parts, with neck and shoulders being the most vulnerable areas.

7. You may be suffering from a condition known as rotator cuff injury in which the group of ligaments and muscles that support the shoulder get injured during lifting or playing any sport.

To avoid aggravating the pain from becoming more severe, you shouldn't ignore any ache that arises from these areas.

Too Much or Too Little - How Much Should You Indulge In It?

Sexologist, Kolkata
Too Much or Too Little - How Much Should You Indulge In It?

Indulging in intercourse daily is a healthy option for couples as it comes with a variety of benefits:

  1. Reduces stress
  2. Promotes longevity
  3. Leads to an increase in blood circulation
  4. Helps one sleep better
  5. Improves your fitness level

Indulging in intercourse daily certainly does come with benefits but overdoing the routine can result in various side-effects. According to most medical practitioners and sex-perts, doing it twice a day is considered optimum.

What happens if you overdo it on a regular basis?
However, stretching it up to thrice is acceptable, but going beyond that number can prove to be harmful as sex is a physical activity which puts strain on your body and genitals. The penis has a resting period, which if not adhered to, can lead to extreme stress on the organ and erectile dysfunction in the long-run. Other than distress in the penis, having sex too many times can also cause soreness in the penis and painful muscle contractions during an orgasm. In women, over-indulging in intercourse can cause tears in the vaginal area which can prove to be very painful while urinating or foreplay the next time. Women are also prone to contracting urinary tract infectionif they indulge in this process too many times. This is the reason why clearing the bladder for women is recommended.

The final verdict
However, sex-perts also believe that is very important for couples to embrace and indulge in this process as physical intimacy and satisfaction plays an important role in sustaining the relationship for a long time. Not having sex for extended periods of time might result in depression and your partner might start looking for other options. Thus, having sex once or twice a day is completely normal and encouraged but for a healthy and sustainable sex life, you should refrain from doing it too many times a day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Urine Infection symptoms in hindi - मूत्र संक्रमण के लक्षण

Urine Infection symptoms in hindi - मूत्र संक्रमण के लक्षण

जिस तरह एक केमिकल फैक्ट्री में कई प्रकार के केमिकल्स की रचना की जाती है और दवाइयां बनाई जाती है और उससे निकले अनावश्यक पदार्थ को बाहर फेंक दिया जाता है। वैसे ही हमारा शरीर एक केमिकल फैक्ट्री की तरह ही काम करता है जहाँ ग्रहण किए गए सभी पदर्थों के तत्व निकालकर अनावश्यक पदार्थ निकाल दिए जाते है। जब भी मानव शरीर मे कोई तत्व बनता है तो उससे निकले अनावश्यक पदार्थ शरीर में जमा होने लगता है और उसे निकालना जरूरी हो जाता है। और यही काम करती है किडनी। जी बिलकुल किडनी खून में मौजूद आवश्यक तत्व को निकाल के बचे हुए अनावशयक तत्व को मूत्राशय यानी ब्लैडर में जमा कर देता है जिसे हम मूत्र कहते हैं। हमारे मूत्र में वो सभी केमिकल्स मौजूद होते है जिसकी जरूरत हमारे शरीर को नही होती इस लिए उसे निकाल दिया जाता है। 

अब यह तो रहा सामान्य प्रोसेस पर अगर यह प्रोसेस सही से ना हो या इसके दौरान तकलीफों का सामना करना पड़े तो हमारी कई बीमारियों से भी मुलाक़ात हो सकती है। पेशाब में दिक्कत आना या यूरीन इन्फेक्शन होना एक आम समस्या होती जा रही है। ज़्यादातर पुरुष, महिलाओं या किशोरियों में 100 में से अस्सी प्रतिशत लोग कभी न कभी मूत्र रोगों से परेशान रहे होते हैं। 

यूरिन इन्फेक्शन जिसे यूटीआई कहते हैं पेशाब से संबंधित अंगों में होने वाला इन्फेक्शन है। जब कुछ कीटाणु पेशाब से जुड़े अंगों में चले जाते हैं तो वहाँ संक्रमण हो जता है इस वजह से पेशाब में दर्द, जलन,कमर दर्द,बुखार आदि की तकलीफें पैदा होने लगती हैं और इसी को यूरिन इन्फेक्शन या युटीआई कहते हैं। 

यूरिन इन्फेक्शन गंभीर बीमारी है। अगर यूरिन में इन्फेक्शन होता है तो सबसे पहले असर किडनी पर होता है। जब किडनी ठीक से काम नहीं कर पाती है तो क्रोनिक किडनी की बीमारी हो सकती है। इसमें सूजन आ सकती है और समय पर इलाज नहीं कराने पर किडनी फेल भी हो सकती है। यह इन्फेक्शन ब्लड के जरिए बॉडी के बाकी ऑर्गन तक भी पहुंच सकता है और उन्हें भी डैमेज कर सकता है।

मूत्र मार्ग संक्रमण यानी के यूरीन इन्फेक्शन दोस्तों इसके लक्षण आम और आसानी से पहचाने योग्य होते हैं। पर अगर ध्यान ना दिया जाए तो यह तो बिमारियों से भी मिलवा सकता है।
इसलिए जरूरी है की इसके लक्षणों से अवगत रहें जिससे समय रहते इसकी पहचान करके उपचार कर सकें वरना गंभीर बीमारियाँ गले पड़ जाएंगी।

यूरिन इन्फेक्शन होने की संभावना लगभग 50 % महिलाओं को होती है। 
इसलिए इसकी जानकारी सभी महिलाओं को होनी चाहिए। ताकि थोड़ी सावधानी रखकर इस परेशानी से बचा जा सके।

  1. पेशाब करते समय जलन या दर्द होना।
  2.  बार बार तेज पेशाब आने जैसा महसूस होता है, लेकिन मुश्किल से थोड़ी सी पेशाब आती है।
  3.  नाभि से नीचे पेट में, पीछे पीठ में या पेट के साइड में दर्द होना।
  4.  गंदला सा, गहरे रंग का, गुलाबी से रंग का, या अजीब से गंध वाला पेशाब होना।
  5.  थकान और कमजोरी महसूस होना।
  6.  उलटी होना, जी घबराना।
  7.  बुखार या कंपकंपी ( जब इन्फेक्शन किडनी तक पहुँच जाता है ) होना।
