Turmeric

Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant. The turmeric spice comes from the turmeric plant. It is generally used in Asian cuisine to add flavor to dishes and curries, as well as in butters, mustard, and cheeses. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Asia, and is a major part of Ayurveda, Siddha medicine, Unani, and traditional Chinese medicine. Although typically used in its powdered and dry form, it is also often used fresh, like ginger.

Nutritional Value of Turmeric

Turmeric is an excellent source of potassium, Vitamin B6, and fiber as well as substantial amounts of magnesium and Vitamin C. Curcumin, the major component of the spice turmeric, has several noted therapeutic effects. Turmeric also contains health benefiting essential oils such as turmerone, zingiberene, cineole, and p-cymene. Turmeric does not contain any cholesterol, but it is rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants, which help control cholesterol levels. Turmeric contains high amounts of minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, and magnesium.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Mentioned below are the best health benefits of Turmeric
Health Benefits of Turmeric

Has anti-inflammatory properties

Curcumin, the main component in turmeric, has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, studies have found that it is so powerful that it is capable of matching the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory drugs. Curcumin targets multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway, at the molecular level. It blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. Turmeric can thus help combat inflammation.

Prevention of cancer

Curcumin present in turmeric has been found to be very effective in interfering with cancer development in the body. It can also help boost the effects of chemotherapy. It has been noted that this cancer prevention ability of turmeric becomes even stronger when used in combination with freshly ground black pepper.

Helps prevent arthritis

Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties have been instrumental in treating osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Turmeric also contains anti-oxidants which destroy the free radicals in the body that damage the cells and lead to arthritis. People suffering from arthritis are advised to take turmeric on a daily basis.

Improves digestion

Turmeric, if consumed raw when suffering from digestive problems, can be very effective in successfully treating them. The major components of the spice stimulate the gallbladder to produce bile, instantly making the digestive system more efficient. Turmeric has also been known to alleviate symptoms of gas and bloating.

Helps control diabetes

Turmeric is often used in the treatment of patients who have pre-diabetes to prevent or delay the onset of Type-2 diabetes. This is mainly due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds present in curcumin. Turmeric helps keep insulin levels in check and also boosts the effects of the medications used for treating diabetes.

Boosts immune system

Lipopolysaccharide is a substance present in turmeric which has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties which help stimulate the human immune system. Not only does it improve the functioning of the immune system, but it is also very helpful in treating colds and coughs.

Detoxifies the liver

Turmeric is capable of increasing the production of certain vital enzymes which detoxify the blood in the liver by breaking down and reducing the toxins. By improving blood circulation too, turmeric is instrumental in promoting good liver health.

Promotes weight loss

Turmeric helps accelerate the body’s metabolism rate, thus helping the body burn a greater amount if calories, leading to weight loss. Turmeric is also useful in reducing fat mass, which is important in diet-induced weight loss. Additionally, since the curcumin in turmeric lowers bad cholesterol levels, turmeric can act as the ideal weight-loss supplement.

Improves skin health

Turmeric keeps skin healthy in more ways than one. It helps reduce oil secretion by sebaceous glands, thus inhibiting the growth of pimple-causing bacteria. Long-term usage of turmeric on the skin can also clear scars caused by acne. The antioxidants present in curcumin have been known to fight signs of aging such as wrinkles and pigmentation by curbing the growth of free radicals.

Helps in wound healing

Turmeric has excellent antibacterial and antiseptic properties. This makes it extremely useful when used for the purpose of quick and efficient wound healing. Studies have found that turmeric is capable of healing wounds completely within a very short period of time.

Uses of Turmeric

Turmeric is used not only as a spice, but it also widely used in the treatment of certain ailments such as arthritis, joint pain gallbladder diseases and other kidney problems. Turmeric is often applied topically to the skin to treat pain, ringworm, bruising, infections and other inflammatory skin conditions. The essential oil of turmeric is used in the cosmetic industry as an ingredient in scented soaps and perfumes. In food and manufacturing, the resin obtained from turmeric is used as a flavor and color component in foods.

Side-Effects & Allergies of Turmeric

Turmeric is generally very safe and has no side effects when used optimally. People with turmeric sensitivity can have mild stomach upset or diarrhea. Turmeric usually does not cause significant side effects; however, some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea.

Cultivation of Turmeric

Turmeric has been used in Asia for thousands of years and is a major part of Ayurveda, Siddha medicine, Unani, and traditional Chinese medicine. Turmeric has its origins in Southern India, and till date, this region continues as the world's largest producer of turmeric. India is the largest exporter of turmeric in the world, followed by Thailand, Latin America and Taiwan. Indian turmeric is considered the best in the world market because of its high curcumin content. Turmeric is a perennial plant, which means that it can be cultivated throughout the year. It requires temperatures ranging from 20 to 30 °C and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Though turmeric thrives in different types of soil ranging from light black loam, red soils to clayey loams, rich loamy soils having natural drainage and irrigation facilities are the best. Turmeric cannot stand water stagnation or alkalinity.

You can try various methods to get rid of dark elbows, knees and underarms: 1) Wet a pumice stone, loofah or nylon shower puff with warm water and rub it back and forth over the dry skin. This will help remove the dry skin patches under your arms and on your knees. 2) Aloe vera soothes skin and reduces dark spots. It also helps treat sunburns. Just apply some aloe vera gel on your knees, elbows and underarms, and allow it to seep in for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. Repeat this ritual everyday for at least two weeks and the coarse dark skin in these areas will make way for a smooth and fair one. 3) Turmeric,Honey And Milk-Mix some turmeric with milk and honey to make it a smooth paste. Apply it on the dark areas and leave it there for at least 20 minutes Wet your hands and rub it for 2 minutes and then wash it off with water 4) Using sunscreen lotions while going out reduces the chances of developing dark skin on the exposed parts. Apply sunscreen while going out in the sun during the summer season. You can also use it as moisturizer after shower on elbows and knees to lighten the skin color. 5) Moisturizers hydrate the skin and avoid the dryness of the skin. This will prevent darkening of the skin. The moisturizers also reduce the friction on the skin. Apply good quality moisturizes after having shower to keep your skin fresh and supple.

Antioxidants for Healthy Penis Skin

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Antioxidants for Healthy Penis Skin

Because many men think of their penis primarily in terms of its usefulness in sexual activities, they don't always remember that good penis health means more than taking steps to ensure a solid working erection. But in fact, there are many different aspects of penis health, including taking steps to ensure healthy penis skin, both for practical and aesthetic reasons. Part of keeping penis skin healthy involves incorporating antioxidants into the penis care routine.

What are antioxidants?

On a technical level, an antioxidant is a molecule that helps keep other molecules from getting oxidized. Oxidation, in turn, is a chemical process that creates something called free radicals, which then can cause damage to cells, such as skin cells. They can also contribute to heart disease, cancer and other health conditions. However, not all free radicals are bad, and a certain amount of them are useful. For example, oxidation is important in helping the liver detoxify food and the body to help fight certain bacteria.

On a more-than-molecular level, antioxidants refers to those vitamins, minerals and nutrients that have an ability to keep those free radicals (and the damage they do) at bay.

How do antioxidants help skin?

Many skin care products are rich in antioxidants, because keeping oxidative stress from damaging skin cells helps ensure the health of skin. There are many things that can damage the skin, both on the surface and on a more molecular level. The stronger the skin is on the molecular level, the better it is able to withstand attacks on the surface level.

How does a person get antioxidants?

The body itself makes some antioxidants and depends upon a healthy diet to help supplement those amounts. Some foods are richer sources of antioxidants than others. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the following are some foods particularly high in antioxidants:

- Goji berries

- Wild blueberries

- Dark chocolate

- Pecans

- Artichokes

- Elderberries

- Kidney beans

- Cranberries

- Blackberries

- Cilantro

And these are some of the herbs that are very good sources of antioxidants:

- Clove

- Cinnamon

- Oregano

- Turmeric

- Cocoa

- Cumin

- Dried parsley

- Basil

- Ginger

- Thyme

As mentioned earlier, many skin care products are also good sources of antioxidants. This can be especially important because skin that is damaged by free radicals can be vulnerable - and unattractive as well.

Free radical damage is one of the things that leads to skin looking prematurely aged. It can contribute to drying out and to the cracks, wrinkles and blemishes that can mar otherwise attractive skin.

This is as true of penis skin as it is of skin elsewhere on the body. Penis skin is naturally delicate, so that the organ is more readily receptive to friction and stimulation. This can also make it more susceptible to cracking and wrinkling. When cracks appear on the penis skin, they can also open up a pathway for bacteria to get inside, creating further penis health concerns.

For this reason, penis skin needs to be exposed to a healthy level of antioxidants. One way to help achieve this is through the daily application of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Clearly, for it to be effective, the crème must include antioxidants. This can more readily be achieved if the crème contains vitamins A and C, as well as alpha lipoic acid. All three of these have antioxidant capabilities. Vitamin A has the added bonus of fighting bacteria that cause penis odor, while vitamin C also helps give penis skin its necessary tone and elasticity. Alpha lipoic acid has strong antioxidant properties on its own and also helps boost those of vitamin C.

Body Inflammation (Soojna) - 7 Foods That Can Help Reduce It!

Body Inflammation (Soojna) - 7 Foods That Can Help Reduce It!

Inflammation or soojan in the body can make it difficult for you to follow your daily routine. According to Ayurveda, this is caused by an imbalance of the pitta dosha. As the pitta dosha increases, the heat in the body also increases leading to inflammation and other issues. To reduce the pitta dosha, one must consume foods that are not hot or warm in nature and increase the consumption of foods that have a cooling effect.

7 amazing foods that can really help:

  1. Turmeric: Turmeric contains an important anti-inflammatory compound known as curcumin. This can help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis, arteriosclerosis, asthma, and cancer. It also reduces the effects of inflammatory oxidants such as nitric oxide. Turmeric can be used to flavor foods or steeped into a tea.
  2. Flax: Nuts such as flax and pumpkin seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. They also help cool the body. Some other nuts and seeds that you could include in your diet are almonds that have been soaked in water overnight and peeled, sunflower seeds, coconut and popcorn without salt. Avoid nuts such as brazilian nuts, chia seeds, cashew nuts, walnuts and sesame seeds as they can increase body temperature.
  3. Garlic: Garlic is a wonder food that is very important in a pitta pacifying diet. Along with other nutrients, garlic contains allicin that has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Consuming garlic on a regular basis can also help protect a person against heart diseases by reducing inflammation in the veins and arteries.
  4. Ginger: According to Ayurveda, ginger is considered as an universal medicine. This herb has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation. It also aids in digestion and promotes healthy blood circulation. The best way to consume ginger to fight inflammation is to steep it in a tea.
  5. Whole grains: To reduce the pitta dosha, you should include plenty of dry, sweet whole grains in your diet. This includes barley, oats, quinoa, wheat and rice. These foods are good sources of fiber and proteins. They also have a low glycemic index and help maintain body temperature.
  6. Leafy vegetables: Vegetables that reduce the pitta dosha are usually sweet and astringent. These vegetables are best eaten raw at mid-day when the digestive system is functioning at its peak. Lettuce, kale, leeks, collard greens and wheat grass are some of the vegetables that you must include in your diet. On the other hand, avoid spicy vegetables like green chillies, onions, and radishes.
  7. Tomatoes: Tomatoes contain lycopene that helps reduce inflammation in the lungs. This vegetable can be consumed raw or juiced but when cooked, the lycopene amount increases. However, avoid raw tomatoes as they can irritate the digestive system.

Labour - Medical & Natural Ways To Induce It!

Labour - Medical & Natural Ways To Induce It!

Pregnancy is usually one of the most important times in a woman’s life. Pregnancies are divided into four terms. These include the early term where the delivery happens after 37 weeks, the full term where delivery happens after 39 weeks, the later term where the delivery takes place after 41 weeks and the fourth or post-term stage where the delivery happens after 42 weeks.

If a pregnancy lasts for two weeks longer that the expected due date, a woman is more likely to experience complications. In such situations, it is recommended that a woman induce the labour or has it done by a doctor.

The medical ways to induce labour are as follows:
1. Cervical ripening helps in making the unborn baby anxious and come out of the womb.
2. Breaking or bursting of the amniotic sac that covers the baby within the uterus. This gets the labour started and is also known as amniotomy.
3. Using oxytocin to induce labour as it tends to ripen the cervix and making more space for the delivery around the uterus by lubricating it further.
4. Naturally occurring chemicals like prostaglandins might be used. These tend to soften the cervix to allow cervical stretching. These can either be delivered to the vagina or taken as an oral medication.

Some of the natural and most effective ways through which labour can be induced are as follows:
1. Relaxation techniques: Self-hypnosis or guided imagery may be useful in inducing labour in certain women.
2. Sex: The uterus tends to contract from the orgasm and release oxytocin. However, women with broken waters or vaginal bleeding should not indulge in this activity.
3. Nipple stimulation: Gently rubbing or rolling the nipple may release oxytocin and hence induce labour.
4. Herbs: Certain herbs like tulsi or turmeric might be useful in inducing labour.
5. Exercise: Taking a light walk or certain exercises might help in inducing labour. This might help moving the baby into the pelvis.
6. Foods: certain spicy foods might help induce labour. However, at times they can also slow it down. One should consult a doctor while doing so.
7. Homeopathy: Certain homeopathic treatments might also be very useful. Do consult a homeopathy specialist before taking any and discussing the side effects if any.

It is highly important that women speak with their doctors or specialists to talk about methods of inducing labour since some of the methods mentioned above might turn out to work for some, whereas for the others, they may not be as useful or could also turn out to be harmful. There are chances that a woman might get highly annoyed because of the delay during the post-term stage. However, one should always give different relaxation techniques a try.

Asthma - 6 Superb Ayurvedic Ways To Help You Out!

Asthma - 6 Superb Ayurvedic Ways To Help You Out!

Are you suffering from wheezing or recurring symptoms of breathlessness and pressure in the chest? The good news is that these symptoms of asthma can be managed, controlled and relieved by an alternative treatment of Ayurveda.

Here are six Ayurvedic remedies for asthma:

  1. Diet and nutrition: You should chew your food properly and eat attentively. Avoid over-fullness of the chest and eat a little lesser than your capacity. The following fluid and food items are beneficial to prevent the onset of asthma:
    • Green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits
    • Onions, as they contain an anti-inflammatory compound called Quercetin
    • Tulsi, as it contains therapeutic benefits, which have the power to prevent asthma
    • Turmeric and honey as they can minimize nasal acuteness
    • Lukewarm water throughout the day
    • Ginger and pepper
  2. Foods to avoid:
    • Foods that aid in phlegm formation like too much sugar, pickles, ice cream, curd, cold beverages, etc.
    • Spicy and pungent food
    • Allergen-rich food like certain meat, fish, chocolate, preservatives, etc.
  3. Lifestyle changes and daily routine: It is essential to establish a daily routine in order to maintain a balanced bodily rhythm. When we eat, sleep or exercise at the wrong time, our body loses its natural cycle and will not cleanse or heal itself. Therefore, create a daily schedule to do the right things at the right time.
  4. Stress management: Asthma is often worsened by heightened levels of stress, anxiety and mental fatigue.
    • Hormonal changes caused by stress can aggravate the nervous system and depress the immune response.
    • Keep stress at bay and prevent asthma by doing some healthy breathing exercises.
    • For instance, practice pranayama to keep your lungs healthy and enable a fresh flow of air with its breathing techniques. Identify your trigger points for stress and alleviate them.
  5. Massage with herbal oil: Soothe and balance your nervous system with naturally herb-induced oils. The herbs present in the oils will penetrate your tissue beds and stabilize the affected areas:
    • Massage mustard oil and camphor over the chest and back of the chest to relieve breathing problems.
    • Sesame oil can also be applied on the chest.
  6. Yoga: According to Ayurveda, the accumulation of toxins in the body lead to asthma. An impaired digestion leads to the deposit of mucus or phlegm in the lungs, causing obstruction in breathing. Yoga is a proven remedy for asthma. It aims to have a positive effect on the body’s healing response and also strengthens the body's digestive system.
  7. Prevent asthmatic triggers: Make it a point to keep your surroundings neat and clean. Keep away from pollutants, dust, smoke, pollen and other medications that can trigger asthma.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
