Unhealthy Habits To Avoid After Eating Food

You will seldom come across a person who does not like to eat. Nothing can be more satisfying than binging on your favorite cuisine. Though the choice of food may differ from individuals to individuals, most of us live to eat. It is not without reason that food is considered a fuel that gets the body going, enabling us to carry on with our daily chores. While hot, spicy and fast foods are what most of us crave for, one cannot ignore the health benefits of a balanced and nutritious diet. A diet enriched with the essential nutrients can play a significant role to keep the vital organs of the body fit and healthy.

Importance of a healthy and nutritious diet
A nutritious diet plays a pivotal role in maintaining the well-being of the body. From eyes to heart, it takes care of almost everything. Mentioned below are some of the food items that should be a part of your diet.

  1. Fruits: The health benefits of fruits deserve no special mention. Apple, banana, citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, guava, most of the fruits are laden with vitamins and minerals and go a long way to build the immunity and resistance of the body against various diseases and infections.
  2. Vegetables: A diet without vegetables is anything but healthy. From antioxidants (mostly dark green vegetables) to omega-3 fatty acids, minerals to dietary fibers, incorporating vegetables in the diet takes care of most of the nutritional requirements of the body.
  3. Meat: Equally important are animal products which include meat (chicken, lamb, crab, goat, duck, to name a few), fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, tilapia, sardine, basa, to name a few), fish oil. Most of these are a rich source of proteins, vitamins, and minerals necessary for the overall growth of the body.
  4. Milk and dairy products: Milk, cheese, butter, curd, ghee, being an excellent source of calcium, vitamin, minerals, fats, proteins, should be included in the diet.
  5. Oils: One cannot miss out on the various benefits of ghee, especially of cow, mustard oil, coconut oil & olive oil and other healthy vegetable oils, such as sesame oil, rice bran oil, flaxseed oil to name a few, that are rich in nutrients including Omega-3 fatty acids.
  6. Cereals: The nutritive value of cereals (oats, rye, wheat, quinoa, rice) and pulses (black gram, lentils, chickpea, groundnuts) are also immense.
  7. Herbs & spices: The herbs and spices that make food more palatable are known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Unhealthy habits to avoid after eating food
There are certain unhealthy habits which when done immediately after eating food will do the body more harm than good. Some of these include:

  1. For a proper digestion of food, never take a nap soon after the meal.
  2. Taking a shower immediately after having food will also affect the digestion process.
  3. Many of us have a habit of drinking tea after a meal. However, it is an unhealthy practice that can interfere with both the digestion of food as well as with the absorption of iron.
  4. Eating fruits immediately after a meal will also affect the digestion of food.
  5. Smoking after a meal is an extremely unhealthy practice.

What is Chlamydia ?
  
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases . This infection is easily spread because it often causes no symptoms and may be unknowingly passed to sexual partners. In fact, about 75% of infections in women and 50% in men are without symptoms.

Causes of chlamyadia :

Chlamydia may be transmitted by unprotected oral, anal, or vaginal sex with a person.

Genital contact can also pass on chlamydia

As chlamydial infection presents no symptoms in at least 70 percent of carriers, an infected person may pass it on to their sexual partner without knowing.

contact with a toilet seat that has been used by an infected person

sharing a sauna with infected people

sharing a swimming pool with infected people

touching a surface that an infected person had previously touched or coughed/sneezed on

standing close to an infected person, inhaling the air after they have coughed or sneezed

sharing an office with an infected colleague

An infected mother can pass the infection on to her baby during childbirth.
 
Sometimes, the infection leads to complications for the infant, such as pneumonia.

 If a mother has a chlamydia infection during pregnancy, she will require a test 3 to 4 weeks after treatment to ensure the infection has not returned.

Chlamydia symptoms in women :

Abnormal vaginal discharge that may have an odor
Bleeding between periods
Painful periods
Abdominal pain with fever
Pain when having sex
Itching or burning in or around the vagina
Pain when urinating

Chlamydia symptoms in men :

Small amounts of clear or cloudy discharge from the tip of the penis
Painful urination
Burning and itching around the opening of the penis
Pain and swelling around the testicles

Diagnosis :

Diagnosing chlamydia may include a physical exam to look for the presence of physical symptoms such as discharge, and will also include either a swab sample from the penis, cervix, urethra, throat, or rectum, or a urine sample.

Prevention 

condoms
using a dental dam during oral sex
regular screening
To avoid spreading chlamydia, individuals should avoid sexual activity until treatment is complete. If a one-time dose of antibiotics is prescribed, it is recommended that people avoid sex until 7 to 10 days after treatment.

Role of Homeopathy for chlamydia :

Homeopathy is a popular system of medicine which follows a holistic approach and it has very little or zero side effects.

The infections caused by Chlamydia can be treated by the homeopathic medicines such as-

Cannabis sativa
Belladonna
Hydrastis
Helonias
Kreosotum
Thuja
Platina
Medorrhinum
You should always remember that the treatment of Chlamydia should be on the basis of individual assessment taking into account the various causes, sensations and manifestation of pain. The treatment will vary from person to person. It is highly recommended that your homeopathic doctor be consulted after you get proper screening tests done and detect it early enough if harmful consequences at a later stage are to be avoided. Chlamydia is capable of spreading to the other parts of your body and can lead to serious health problems such as infertility and pelvic disorders and it is important to arrest the problem before that.

Recommended Foods:

Include more green leafy vegetables like spinach, coriander, freshly prepared wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa grass etc…

Foods to Avoid:

Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and other abusive substances that may compromise your immunity.
Fermented food, acidic, salty and canned food- like pickles, ketchup, mayonnaise.
Avoid high protein food like – meat, eggs, fish, chicken, black gram, pulses etc.

touching a surface that an infected person had previously touched or coughed/sneezed on

standing close to an infected person, inhaling the air after they have coughed or sneezed

An infected mother can pass the infection on to her baby during childbirth.
 
Sometimes, the infection leads to complications for the infant, such as pneumonia.

 If a mother has a chlamydia infection during pregnancy, she will require a test 3 to 4 weeks after treatment to ensure the infection has not returned.

Role of Homeopathy for chlamydia :

Homeopathy is a popular system of medicine which follows a holistic approach and it has very little or zero side effects.

Cannabis sativa
Belladonna
Hydrastis
Helonias
Kreosotum
Thuja
Platina

The treatment will vary from person to person. It is highly recommended that your homeopathic doctor be consulted after you get proper screening tests done and detect it early enough if harmful consequences at a later stage are to be avoided.
