Hi Sir, Can we consume olive oil on empty stomach for some days to reduce cholesterol level?

Hi Sir, Can we consume olive oil on empty stomach for some days to reduce cholesterol level?
Olives do not grow in india, thus the oil available here is not fresh. On the contrary mustard oil is fresh and has the same health benefits as olive oil. I recommend mustard oil instead.

Hi, I am 28 years old married woman from past 3 years. I have pcos/pcod problem and undergoing ayurvedic treatment. My period cycles last for 35-37 days and I have moderate bleeding with abdomen pain. I would like to know if certain foods can be taken or not. Can I have 2 table spoon of fenugreek sprouts with little bit of curd or butter milk and pepper powder everyday? Or I should completely avoid curd/butter/cheese/milk products. Once in a day I have coffee with a table spoon of jaggery and some pepper powder. Is that fine? Which oils can I use for cooking? I try to avoid this sunflower oil as it is refined oil. How about mustard/sesame/coconut/groundnut oil? Is coconut water ok to drink every day? For period pain l boil ajwain cumin and fennel seeds and drink the concoction or sometimes I just add the ajwain. I don't eat chicken or other meats apart from eggs and fish. Please advise.

"fenugreek sprouts with little bit of curd or butter milk and pepper powder everyday?- ok "coffee with a table spoon of jaggery and some pepper powder.- ok "mustard/sesame/coconut/groundnut oil"- naturally prepared ok. Coconut is better "is coconut water ok to drink every day?- no advantage no disadvantage. More important- pcod is a disease where there is a hormonal imbalance. Depending on your complaints, examination, reports, and stage of life treatment differs, and it also needs more time to get yourself treated with patience. Meet gynecologist in whom you have trust as you will need to go for a long time to him/her. Overweight is very common so in case you have that reduction of weight helps tremendously. Principles in loosing weight are some excercises, more protein and low carbohydrate and low fat (omega-6) but to maintain proper intake of vitamins, minerals. After 6 in evening to avoid carbs and take protein+fibre.

Olive oil, groundnut oil and sesame seed oil Olive oil is the best edible oil in terms of palatability, stability, lipid profile, and safety profiles. It is rich in energy; 100 g oil provides 884 calories. However, its high ratio of mono-unsaturated fatty acids to saturated fatty acids qualifies it as one of the healthiest oil for consumption. Extra virgin oil has high smoke point at 450 °F (210 ºC). This property of olive is crucial while employing it in high-temperature cooking; as in deep-frying of certain food items. Olive oil has an excellent lipid profile. Saturated, mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated (SFA: MUFA: PUFA= 14: 77: 9) fats in it are distributed at healthy proportions. Natively cold-pressed oil is one of the stable cooking oils featuring a very long shelf life. Peanut oil is high in energy; 100 g oil provides 884 calories. It is one of the cooking oils with a high smoke point; 450 °F. The property can be employed in setting oil temperatures while deep-frying food items. Peanut oil has very good lipid profile. It has saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated (SFA: MUFA: PUFA= 18: 49: 33) fats in healthy proportions. It is one of the stable cooking oils; having a long shelf life. Flavorful, crunchy sesame seeds are widely considered as healthy foods. 100 grams of seeds carry 573 calories. Although, much of its calorie comes from fats, sesame contains several notable health-benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. The seeds are especially rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid, which comprises of up to 50% of fatty acids in them. Oleic acid helps lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good cholesterol" in the blood. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet which is rich in mono-unsaturated fats may help prevent coronary artery disease, and stroke by favoring healthy serum lipid profile. The seeds are also very valuable sources of dietary protein with fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth, especially in children. Just 100 g of seeds provide about 18 g of protein (32% of daily-recommended values). Sesame seeds contain many health benefiting compounds such as sesamol (3, 4-methylene-dioxyphenol),sesaminol, furyl-methanthiol, guajacol (2-methoxyphenol), phenylethanthiol and furaneol, vinylguacol, and decadienal. Sesamol and sesaminol are phenolic anti-oxidants. Together, these compounds help stave off harmful free radicals from the human body. Sesame is among the seeds rich in quality vitamins, and minerals. They are very good sources of B-complex vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, thiamin (vitamin B1), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), and riboflavin. 100 g of sesame contains 97 µg of folic acid, about 25% of recommended daily intake. Folic acid is essential for DNA synthesis. When given to expectant mothers during their peri-conception period, it may prevent neural tube defects in the newborns. Niacin is another B-complex vitamin found abundantly in sesame. About 4.5 mg or 28% of daily-required levels of niacin is provided by just 100 g of seeds. Niacin helps reduce LDL-cholesterol levels in the blood. In addition, it enhances GABA activity inside the brain, which in turn helps reduce anxiety and neurosis. The seeds are incredibly rich sources of many essential minerals. Calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper are especially concentrated in sesame seeds. Many of these minerals have a vital role in bone mineralization, red blood cell production, enzyme synthesis, hormone production, as well as regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle activities.

I am suffering from hypertension last two years how can manage my blood pressure & my weight.

I am suffering from hypertension last two years how can manage my blood pressure & my weight.
Hello Managing your weight as well as blood pressure requires a motivation to attain a better health. A balanced diet full of fibrous food like nuts, green leafy vegetables, carrots, broccoli, peas and seeds should be a portion of your meals daily. Excess of sugar, oil and salt are the major causes behind all these lifestyle disorders. Kindly keep a check on these 3 ingredients. Also, wholegrain cereals, pulses and fruits are beneficial in improving the metabolism. Just the diet control is not enough, but exercise should be an unavoidable part of your routine, be it yoga, regular daily brisk walks or swimming. Stress is known to be one of the causes too behind hypertension as well as obesity. Kindly keep your self busy by a hobby or whatever activity that relieves you from stress if any. Homoeopathic medicines are quite effective in the treatment of hypertension as well as overweight/obesity. I suggest you to also consult a good homoeopathic doctor near you.
