Easy Ayurvedic solutions to ageing!

Easy Ayurvedic solutions to ageing!

Are you one of those geniuses who cry on their every birthday? The nightmare that growing up is; has you bawling your eyes out every year when you look in the mirror and see that one newborn wrinkle! Botox is not the solution, neither is plastic surgery.

Not to miss the fact that there are a million creams available for wrinkles in the market (and most of our celebrities swearing by them), but why go cream shopping when you can simply go Ayurvedic!

Here are five simple Ayurvedic tricks that will destroy all your wrinkles:

1. Massage your face with almond oil or just apply castor oil on your wrinkles at night and leave it overnight. It’s easy and simple. You will definitely start noticing the difference.

2. A very effective treatment for wrinkles is Indian gooseberry or Amlaki. They are a rich source of vitamin C and rubbing it on the wrinkles will definitely lighten them.

3. Grate some cucumber and sieve it to get the juice. Apply the juice on the wrinkle affected area daily for half an hour and see visible results within two weeks.

4. Eat a mixture made of ginger and honey to treat the wrinkles. It will not only reduce them but also keep them at bay.

5. Tulsi or Basil is famous for its anti-ageing properties. Drink a decoction made from the leaves or simply chew a few leaves every day to slacken the development of wrinkles. Growing up is inevitable, but delaying it is definitely a piece of cake with Ayurveda!

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Hye, thanks for the query. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite. Supplements and medications don't work unless your basic diet is not worked on.

What is the benefits of chewing food 32 times? And what is neutrino which is help in food?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
An American health-food guru of the late 1800s, Horace Fletcher, was known as 'The Great Masticator'. He recommended chewing food at least once for every tooth or 32 times per mouthful before swallowing.Digestion of food begins with the chewing, as you chew for a longer period the amylase in your saliva begins breaking down the food so that the nutrients in it are absorbed more easily into your system. Digestion is easier and more nutrients are derived from the food you eat.

Taking small amount of normal rice will not create any problems for you. You can take a combination of multi-grain atta roti along with some rice. It is never the 'Rice' which creates weight but it is the Biryani or Fried Rice which adds to the weight. So if you don't like Brown Rice, just leave it aside. Try to add more fruits to your diet. Drink more water. Eat slowly and mindfully. Eat less but enjoy your food instead of feeling guilty. Food is meant to be enjoyed and relished. If you are looking for a simple - do able diet which can create permanent impact you can consult privately.

Egg protein is best protein, so if you are an eggitarian you can have one or two eggs daily, if it suits you. Second thing recommended to you is to take small meals but frequently. I you should take 5-6 meals in a day but small in amounts rather than large meals 3 times a day.

As a rule hormones in birth control pills should not be taken for more than 6 months, due to cancer risk at age 50, our suggestion to every woman is, once family is complete, get iucd fitted as it can be removed if due to any reason, the woman feels that she is bleeding more. Some daring ones do opt for ligation but in that case the woman needs at least 1 month rest, as it may look like 1 stitch from outside but internally the operation is as good/ bad as an abdominal appendix operation.

Dear sir
  I lost my 8kg weight in 4 months. What is the cause and how can I regain it.
Eat a healthy diet. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a.Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B.Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C.If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D.Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E.Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. F.You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. G.You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain.

A person having weight below the range that is considered normal as per his/her height and age is believed to be underweight. Many persons may be underweight simply because of their genetic makeup. Others may be underweight because of other factors such as eating less or taking a diet insufficient in nutrients. There are a few medical conditions that make a person lose weight and fall in the underweight category. These medical conditions include IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), tuberculosis, crohn’s disease, and liver problems. A person who is stressed or depressed may also lose weight. Homeopathic medicines are extremely helpful for persons looking to gain weight. Homeopathy offers a wide range of medicines that can help underweight persons gain weight in a healthy way. The selection of Homeopathic medicines for gaining weight is based on individual case presentation. The medicines help gain weight while at the same time building immunity. In fact, Homeopathic medicines work by correcting the underlying medical condition that has caused the weight loss in the first place, thereby improving the overall health condition of the person concerned. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

You have to go slow and understand your body's nature. Begin with milder form of exercise and slowly increase the intensity. Yoga can be very beneficial as it is less aggressive and yet very effective to regulate the metabolism. Eat simple digestible food ( steamed food / fruits and vegetables along with your staple food. Count the calories and match it with your activity level.You can the help of a dietician who can calculate the calories needed for your weight loss program. You can also start Homeopathy if needed in case there is not much improvement.
