Hye. Thankyou for your query. Usually sauna belts work on the principle of water loss. The loss you see is usually loss of water not fat. This if fine as a short term loss. But you do need to know the side effects so you can be careful. The sauna belt causes increased perspiration by holding in your body heat. While this heat may cause the desired effect, it also prevents your body from cooling off as efficiently as it should. If you are using the sauna belt in high temperatures or with warm clothes, a sauna belt can increase your risk of heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. During use, the sauna belt holds perspiration against your skin while preventing fresh air from reaching you. Long sessions in a sauna belt can result in the development of rashes and acne. Direct contact with the sauna belt can cause burns to the skin. Sauna belt manufacturers recommend wearing a shirt under the belt to provide a barrier between you and the belt. Using the sauna belt for more than 45 minutes is not recommended. The sauna belt can cause you to sweat profusely, pulling water out of your system. Overexposure to the sauna belt can result in dehydration. On days when you use the belt, drink plenty of water. Be sure to sip water continuously during sauna belt use. Sweating can result in an electrolyte imbalance. If you begin to experience muscle cramps, stop using the belt and drink an electrolyte-containing sports drink.

Make a good routine having time for some exercise causing sweating, take fruits and green vegetables daily. Have egg or protein via various dals. Have enough water a day. Sleep at or around 10 pm and get up at 6 am to start the day. Breath holding exercise and some yoga postures under guidance will help.

This is natural. When you start gymming after a long time, our muscles tend to bump up for some time.

What You Need to Know About Oxygen Facial Therapy

Oxygen is necessary to rejuvenate aging and dull skin. Oxygen facial therapy opens all clogged pores of your face through all the layers. It helps to reduce and eliminate problems like wrinkles, fine lines and acne. Oxygen facial therapy gets the skin on your face to breathe and makes it radiant. Following is the information you need to know to consider Oxygen facial therapy:

  1. The Oxygen levels tend to drop since the age of 25 and by 40 at least 50% of the skin's Oxygen retaining capacity gets impaired. When the skin lacks Oxygen the blood vessels get constricted and it adversely affects the skin's ability to function normally.
  2. Dull and aging skin can't be covered up with makeup or following skin care regimen after a certain point of time. Stress, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy lifestyles etc can take a toll on your skin.

Benefits of Oxygen facial therapy

  1. Oxygen facial therapy can increase the benefits of other topical application of skin care products exponentially
  2. It increases the elasticity of the skin along with the strength of collagen
  3. It increases the number of red blood cells
  4. It makes your skin more supple and radiant
  5. It acts as a stimulator for the immune system
  6. Aids in restricting capillary damage and increases blood flow
  7. Increases the ability of the skin to heal
  8. Gives you an even skin tone
  9. Diminishes inflammation and reddish appearance of the skin
  10. Helps to heal wounds on the skin

?Increase your appetite by eating more to gain weight. But do it step-by-step and not by stuffing yourself too much at one go. Add one extra chapatti or more rice than you normally consume, or you could even start with fruits by eating an extra one every day.? Including the following foods in your diet is also a good idea. Foods are Milk. Egg Banana Oats Breads Puffs Energy bars- Energy bars like granola bars might not be healthy if you are trying to lose weight, but it?s a good option for those trying to gain it. They are loaded with nuts and calories, and if consumed in moderation, they can help add some weight. For weight gain 100 % safe and natural medicines available, in 1 month 4-5 kg increases without any side effects for medicines consult privately and trial pack for 1month ..and only 3 months course

I would advice you to take a prophylactic prolonged dose of antibiotic depending on your urine culture results as they are recurrent. Also drink at least 2.5 litres of water daily and you can take Cranmed capsules twice daily which contains Cranberry juice that has got good antiseptic effects on the bladder. In cases of recurrent infections it is always advisable to get a Ultrasound scan of Kidney, Ureter, Bladder done to rule out any anatomical abnormalities.

Antibiotics are not very good for health. It kills harmful as well as beneficial bacteria in our body. It supresses the immune response. Better fr you to go for homoeopathic treatment. It will cure all your problem. Taking one molecule for long can make you resistant to that molecule alsoo. Soo try to avoid it. If you want you can contact me through Lybrate.

Weight Loss - 10 Natural Ways For It!

Weight Loss - 10 Natural Ways For It!

With obesity on the rise, more and more young people are looking at measures for weight loss. Ayurveda, with its safe and natural system can be a lofe saver. It believes that obesity is a result of excessive Kapha, and weight loss measures should be aimed at reducing kapha. Reduce foods that are sweet, sour or salty. Increase foods that are bitter and pungent and promote digestion.

The following are some effective ways of losing weight, a combination of natural herbs, dietary habits, and lifestyle changes.

  1. Guggul or commiphora resin is a very effective fat burner that is used in correcting lipid disorders and treating obesity. It helps by correcting total cholesterol levels, lowering LDL (the bad cholesterol), and increasing HDL (the good cholesterol) levels.
  2. Garcinia cambogia, or vriksh amla, is a form of gooseberry that is used widely for weight loss. It affects the fat synthesis, fat accumulation, and reduces visceral fat deposition.
  3. Salacia or Kotahla is another popular herb known for reducing fat accumulation. It suppresses the growth of adipose tissue and is particularly useful in people who are insulin resistant.
  4. Kalonji seeds, or Nigella, is also useful in improving waist-hip ratios and reducing body-mass index.
  5. Liquorice is rich in flavonoids which are rich in antioxidants. This has been proven to be useful in preventing accumulation of abdominal fat and reducing triglycerides.
  6. Warm lime water everyday in the morning will help boost the digestive system and promotes in weight loss. Honey can be added if required.
  7. Three meals a day is advisable  with no snacking in between or healthy snacking if not manageable. The meals should consist of balanced, healthy foods with no oils, lots of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat vegetables and fruits that are seasonal, as they have seasonal benefits, are free of chemicals, and easily available. Melons are plentiful in summers while are adequately hydrating, the nuts and roots during winters provide protection from the cold. It is good to have breakfast and lunch as heavier meals compared to dinner, which should be the smallest.
  8. Starting your day with a round of exercise is considered ideal for a variety of reasons and also for weight loss. Do a mild walk for about 10 minutes after each meal to promote digestion.
  9. Adhere to a regular sleep pattern. The hormones and digestive enzymes have a natural cycle and help in managing weight.
  10. Whether meditation or music, exercise or aerobics, find a way to control and manage stress. It is one of the main causes of weight gain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Diabetic Diet - What To Eat What Not To

Diabetic Diet  - What To Eat What Not To

Eat more Healthy fats from raw nuts, olive oil, fish oils, flax seeds, whole milk dairy, or avocados fruits and vegetables ideally fresh, the more colorful the better; whole fruit rather than juices high-fiber cereals and breads made from whole grains or legumes fish and shellfish, organic, free-range chicken or turkey high-quality protein such as eggs, beans, milk, cheese, and unsweetened yogurt

Focus on high-fiber complex carbohydrates also known as slow-release carbs. They are digested more slowly, thus preventing your body from producing too much insulin.

Eat less 

Trans fats from partially hydrogenated or deep-fried foods packaged and fast foods, especially those high in sugar, baked goods, sweets, chips, desserts white bread, sugary cereals, refined pastas or rice processed meat and red meat from animals fed with antibiotics, growth hormones, and GMO feed low-fat products that have replaced fat with added sugar, such as fat-free yogurt

Carbohydrates have a big impact on your blood sugar levels more so than fats and proteins so you need to be smart about what types of carbs you eat. Limit refined carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as soda, candy, packaged meals, and snack foods.

Hello, as you must know, junk food, biscuits, packaged food and aerated drinks are to be completely avoided. We tend to eat these in our free time. These can be replaced by popcorn (without butter), mamra, roasted chana, marie buscuit (1-2 in a day) and juice for drinking. You can cut down on the potion of your daily meal but do not avoid having it completely. Having a light and early dinner helps in weight loss. Try to have soup or khichdi for dinner and avoid carbohydrates. If you work out, you need to increase the intake of protein. Weight loss can be permanent if you continue to maintain it. If you loose ten kilos by vigorous exercise, after loosing weight, you can do relaxed exercises and keep your diet controlled (not necessarily as strictly as you did during weight loss).

Hi sir I am 18 year old I a. My body very big I want body slim place give me sum tips.
Don’t worry. You can lose weight easily if you are patient and determined to shed those extra kilos. You just have to alter your daily routine, watch what you eat and be physically active. This requires you to be on your weight loss commitment for quiet long. As soon as you start seeing the results, you will be surprised as well as motivated to go beyond your weight loss and adopt and a lifelong healthy attitude. For a start please follow: 1.Watch what you eat – Are you eating too much junk, drink excessive alcohol and eating too much white food and sugar? Please cut it down to as low as you can from tomorrow. Cut down tea/coffee if you are too addicted to it. It is creating havoc inside your body. 2.Lifestyle – Are you a late sleeper and late riser? You can’t imagine what this schedule of yours is doing to your metabolism. It is degrading your digestive system from inside and your looks from outside. 3.Physically active – If you are a couch potato who loves to watch tv whole day then throw that couch of yours in the street and get yourself a treadmill tomorrow. Yes it is as simple as that. Who is stopping you? You have to be physically active all day long if you want to burn those extra calories. Do daily brisk walk, Pranayam, atleast 20 surayanamaskar everyday to start seeing the results. Take break between office work to walk a little or rather just climb some stairs to get that food you ate in lunch have space and heat to digest and absorb. What’s the harm in using your washroom to do a little middle of the day squats. Do that – No one is watching you. The key is to stay physically active all day long, no matter what. 4.Eat healthy and eat on time: Not only eating healthy is important but eating at right time is equally imp too. Have an early breakfast and early dinner and have 4 small meals between breakfast and dinner. To guide you a bit, here you go: A.Breakfast (Between 8-10 a. M) – Have oats/porridge or brown bread with milk and nuts. B.At 11 a. M - Cup of Green Tea c.Mid day meal (around 12 p. M) – Have a bowl of fruits. Citrus fruits are best taken during this hour and absorb well in the body. Have oranges, amla, pineapple etc during this hour. D.Lunch (between 2-3 p. M) – Daal, roti, mix veg, buttermilk and salad. You can also take brown rice with daal in lunch. Try to get your food cooked in olive oil. Lace your salad with apple cider vinegar, black pepper and seeds like flaxseeds or chia seeds to make it nutrition packed lunch. E.Between 4 p. M – 5 p. M – Cup of Green Tea F.Evening (4-6 p. M) – Have some nice sprouts with tomatoes and cucumber. G.Dinner (2 hours before sleeping, preferably before 9 p. M) – Paneer & veggies salad with olive oil, Roti or brown rice with Daal. H.Have a glass of warm milk. Weight loss is 80% about what you eat and 20% about exercises. That said, both the things go hand in hand. If you want to lose weight in a more healthy way than be patient and just follow the regimen everyday. Slow and steady wins the race.
