10 Foods You Should Not Consume After They Expire

Though some foods do not expire, but it is advisable not to consume certain foods once they have expired. 

  1. Eggs: Eggs contain large amounts of nutrients per calorie. They are a cheap and tasty source of protein. It is no big surprise that they have turned into a breakfast staple; yet in case that you are eating an egg that is past its expiry date, do reconsider. These are the most widely recognized reasons for food-borne illnesses.
  2. Meat: Bacteria are common in both pre-packaged meats, and in the pieces you take from your butcher at the market. The listeria bacteria are especially hazardous, as the type of harm it causes can be lethal in most of the cases. From a general outlook, it is best to avoid processed meat.
  3. Mixed greens: Mixed greens including spinach, arugula, spring blend, bundled plate of mixed greens lettuce and other veggies do not keep extremely well after their due date. So if their withered appearance and disgusting covering does not turn you off, think about the bacteria and pathogens hiding underneath your sandwich bread.
  4. Hay sprouts: It is important that you use them rapidly once you get them, since they tend to be bacteria magnets. Truth be told, hay pulls in a greater number of germs than other vegetables, particularly in case you abandon them unrefrigerated.
  5. Clams/oysters: Bad oysters can be fatal. This is based on the type of microscopic organisms that develop in spoiled oysters. It is known as V. vulnificus. It causes an extreme type of food poisoning. V. vulnificus bacteria affects the circulatory system, sending the body into a septic shock.
  6. Shrimp: Much like clams and shellfish, shrimps are extremely inclined to bacterial contaminations. It is not to be consumed after a while since it can lead to food poisoning or diarrhea.
  7. Crude ground beef: E. coli bacteria are the most basic reason for food poisoning. These bacteria originate from the animal’s digestive systems and are available in all hamburger items. In case that the hamburger is prepared and taken care of securely, it will not turn into a problem.
  8. Berries: When berries turn sour, they pull in extensive amounts of cyclospora, a kind of bacteria that leads to food poisoning. While this sort of food poisoning is not as harmful as some others, it is something you definitely need to stay away from.
  9. Soft cheese: With hard cheeses, similar to cheddar, it is regularly safe to remove the external edges and eat the soft cheese underneath. However, this practice does not reach out to soft cheeses, similar to brie. In case you are discovering mold on the edges of your soft cheese, do not eat it. You may end up with an infection.
  10. Chicken: Poultry items, including chicken tend to cause the maximum harm in case that they are not taken care of and cooked properly. Undercooked and old chicken can be very unsafe for health.

Indigestion - Best Possible Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Indigestion can happen anytime due to wrong food habits or even due to wrong eating lifestyle. Indigestion brings in pain and discomfort that makes it difficult for you to do anything comfortably. Normally, indigestion issues may go away over a certain period of time, but if it stays for a longer time such as days and weeks, it can lead to much bigger problems such as constipation and ulcer.

Often there are instant medicines to treat indigestion but if you wish to get treated in a natural way, then natural remedies are best. Again these natural remedies may take much time to effect and in this case, treating with homeopathic medicine is the best option.

 

  1. Nux Vomica: Nux Vomica is the best homeopathic medicine for a number of stomach related issues such as heartburn due to gastric, constipation and indigestion. Often such issues do take place after the consumption of spicy food or alcohol and in this case trying this medicine can be the best option. It is most effective when you are feeling heavy on your stomach but even after the passage of your stool you are not getting the feel of comfort.
  2. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is another medicine that can be used in treating gastric related problems that can happen after consumption of fatty or junk food items such as pastries, patties, and others. Often problems of loose stool that is accompanied by slight chilliness are treated with the medicine Pulsatilla. Often during such a problem, the patient does not feel thirsty, even after not drinking water for a long time.
  3. Arsenic Album: If you are got indigestion and gastric problem due to food poisoning, then this is the best medicine that you can go for. Patients who suffer from gastric issues due to food poisoning will also have symptoms like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain accompanies with loose stool. Also, there is a burning sensation in the stomach and the situation increases to worsen on eating or drinking anything.
  4. Lycopodium: Often after eating of high starchy food, you may get a feeling of the heavy stomach. You may get burps that bring a burning sensation in your throat. Even after a few hours of eating the starchy food, you may feel the discomfort and upon eating only a few bites you may feel full in your stomach. This again happens due to indigestion and is a common thing. Lycopodium is the best medicine for such issue.
  5. Carbo Veg: It is not necessary that indigestion will only affect your stomach. Also, there are cases when you may get trouble pain at other parts of the body such as head due to gastric or indigestion. The medicine Carbo Veg helps in treating the gastric issues, bulging of the stomach and ultimately the pain in the head.

There are many other homeopathic medicines also apart from these such as Bryonia Alba, Ipecac, China and Colocynth that are also effective in cases of indigestion. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

7 Foods You Should Never Reheat!

7 Foods You Should Never Reheat!

Yummy delicious food definitely has the potential to make you drool and most foods taste best when served hot. Another common habit that most people have is that of reheating the food, before eating. But have you ever given it a thought that it can be a highly unhealthy practice? Yes, you read it right, it is the most unhealthy practice, especially when it comes to certain foods. 

A quick list of foods is mentioned below, which should never be reheated :

  1. Mushrooms: Mushrooms can enhance the taste of any dish and it is common that the leftovers are stored aside to be savored the next day. This unknown mistake can cost you dearly. Mushrooms are a rich source of protein. On reheating, some of the proteins break drown, which not only changes the flavor of the food but also produces certain toxins. These toxins can lead to upset stomach and digestive problems. Eating reheated mushroom repeatedly can even result in cardiac problems.
  2. Chicken: Having chicken on this list can be quite a heartbreak, as many people use the cooked chicken for 2-3 days. Again, chicken is another excellent source of protein and reheating it will produce toxins, which can result in health complications such as digestive problems. If you want to stay healthy, avoid reheating the cooked chicken.
  3. Celery and spinach: Spinach and celery are both commonly used in soups and are rich in nitrates. Therefore, when you reheat the soup to make it more palatable, the nitrates present in the ingredients are converted to nitrites. Nitrite is carcinogenic in nature and is actually toxic to the body. Thus, you must never reheat any dish containing celery, spinach and other nitrate-rich foods like turnips, beet, and carrots.
  4. Eggs: Seldom will you find a person who does not like eggs. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, eggs can be consumed as boiled, scrambled or in form of a curry. Like chicken, meat and mushrooms, eggs are an excellent source of proteins, which is a reason enough to include them in your diet. However, reheating egg preparations will destroy all the associated health benefits, as the protein in the egg deteriorates it can lead to digestive problems. The best idea would be to prepare the dish and have it immediately.
  5. RiceAlmost everyone reheats the rice before eating with the belief that having cold rice can cause health problems. This is a misconception that will do you no good. Cooked rice should be eaten immediately. It is believed that uncooked rice contains bacterial spores that often causes food poisoning. When you keep the cooked rice unrefrigerated at room temperature, these spores undergo rapid multiplication. Reheating will do the spores no harm. If you want to store cooked rice, always refrigerate it.
  6. Potatoes:  Storing the cooked potatoes at room temperature can act as a catalyst in enhancing the growth of Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium responsible for botulism (a type of food poisoning that can result in flaccid paralysis of muscles). Thus, if you have to consume them at a later stage, its best to refrigerate them and not leave them at room temperature.
  7. Oil: Certain oils such as avocado, grapeseeds, walnut and hazelnut can become smelly with an unpleasant taste when reheated, as these have a low smoke point. Oils when heated above the point of 375 degrees F, they produce a toxin 4-hydroxy-2-trans-nonenal or HNE, which can increase the bad cholesterol i.e LDL, thus increasing the risk of heart diseases.

It is evident that reheating certain foods can be a slow poison to your health, thus avoid reheating foods as much as possible. In case you a concern consult an expert and get your answers.

Food Poisoning In Hindi - जाने क्यो होता है फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग

वैसे तो भोजन और जल ही हमारे शरीर को एक्टिव बने रहने की ताकत देता है पर कभी कभी यही भोजन जल अगर लापरवाही और गंदगी से लिया जाए तो ये शरीर को तोड़ भी देता है। जी हां दूषित भोजन से होने वाली एक बीमारी है फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग। 
फूड प्वाइकिानंग के अधिकांश मामले कुछ ही दिनों में ठीक हो जाते हैं, लेकिन शिशुओं, गर्भवती महिलाओं, बुजुर्गों में फूडप्वाइजनिंग होने से रोकने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए। क्योंकि इससे इनको काफी नुक्सान पहुंचता है। ये ऐसी बीमारी है जिसका इलाज आप एक दो दिन में या फिर हफ्ते में खुद ही कर सकते हैं। पर इसके मामले में लापरवाही करना भविष्य में पेट संबन्धी गम्भीर बीमारियों का संकट भी ला सकता है। इसलिए जरूरी है कि इस बीमारी के बारे में आपको पूरी जानकारी हो जिससे समय रहते या शुरुआती दौर में इस पर काबू पा सकें।

लक्षण
फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग के होने पर शरीर में कई तरह के बिमारियों का लक्षण दिखने लगता है। जैसे –

  • पेट में तेज दर्द होने लगता है।
  • हर 15 से 20 मिंट के अंतराल में उलटी होने लगता है।
  • दस्त यानी लूज़ मोशनभी होने लगती है।
  • खाना पचता नहीं है,कुछ भी खाने से वह तुरंत उलटी के रूप में बाहार निकल जाता है।
  • सिर दर्दहोने लगता है।
  • शरीर बहुत जादा थका हुवा और कमजोरी महसूस होने लगता है। जिससे शरीर बेजान सा लगने लगता है।

कारण
फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग दूषित भोज्य पदार्थ के सेवन करने से होता है। जैसे-

  • बासी खाना खाने से।
  • घर में खाना बनाते वक़्त अगर उसको धोने में गन्दी पानी का इस्तेमाल किया गया हो या फिर खाना बनाने में गन्दी पानी का इस्तेमाल हुआ तो फ़ूड पॉइजनिंगहो सकती है।
  • खाने के सामान को ढक के न रखने पर गंदे मक्खी के बैठने से भी हानिकारक जीवाणु खाने में पहुच जाते है। जिससे फ़ूड पॉइजनिंगहो जाती है।
  • अक्सर रास्ते में लगे खाने की दुकानों में खाने की चीजो को ढाक के रखा नहीं जाता है, जिसके कारण एक तो सड़क के उड़ते हुए धुल सीधे खाने में पहुच जाते है। दूसरी तरफ गन्दी मक्खी भी खाने में पहुच जाते है, जो खाने में हानिकारक जीवाणु को पंहुचाते है। जब हम उस खाना को खाते है तो तो यह बीमारी हो जाती है।
  • अगर लम्बे समय तक घर में इस्तेमाल होने वाले पानी के टैंककी सफाई नहीं हुआ हो तो पानी दूषित हो जाता है। जब हम उस पानी को किसी भी रूप में इस्तेमाल करते है तो इस बीमारी की सँभावना होती है।
  • फ़ूड पॉइजनिंगकी समस्या सिर्फ दूषित खाना की वजह से नहीं होती, कई बार यह हमारे गंदे हाथो से खाना खाने से भी हो जाता है।

बरतें यह सावधानियां -

  • खाना बनाने के पहले और बाद में अपने हाथों को धोएं, खास कर कच्चा, मांस छूने के बाद।
  • कच्चीक हरी साग-सब्जिथयों को पकाने से पहले या फिर खाने से पहले जरुर धोएं।
  • भोजन को तब तक पकाएं जब तक उसके विषैले तत्वो बाहर न निकल जाएं। साथ ही खाने को हमेशा साफ कंटेनर में ही रखें।
  • भोजन करने के तुरंत बाद ही बचा हुआ भोजन फ्रिज में रखें।
  • ऐसे खाना न खाएं जो कई देर से खुले में रखा हुआ हो और उसमें से महक आने लग गई हो। इसके अलावा अगर पैकेट पर डेट एक्सरपायर हो गई हो तो भी उसे न खाएं।
  • टॉयलेट से आने के बाद अपने हाथों को साबुन से जरुर धोएं। अगर आपके घर पर पालतू जानवर है तो भी उसे छूने के बाद हाथों को धोएं।
  • ट्रैवल के दौरान अपने साथ घर का बना गरम और ताजा खाना ही ले जाएं। ठंडा और कच्चाे खाना तब न रखें जब तक वह छिलके वाला न हो, जैसे केला।

ध्याचन देने वाली बातें -

  • हमेशा भरोसेमंद स्टोेर से ही खाने का सामान खरीदें। हमेशा सड़े-गले और किसी तरह की असामान्यता वाले फलों को लेने से बचना चाहिये। खाना अगर पैकेट वाला है तो हमेशा उसकी एक्स पायरी डेट को पढ़ लेना चाहिये।
  • अगर साबुत अनाजों में किसी तरह का कीड़ा या भुकड़ी लगी है, तो बिल्कुल न लें।
  • जमे हुए खाने के सामानों को शौपिंग करने के सबसे आखिर में खरीदना चाहिये जिससे घर पर जाते ही वह आपके फ्रिज में जल्दस से जल्दर रखा जा सके।

उपाय
यहाँ कुछ सुझाव है जो कि फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग की परेशानी को कम करने और आपको तेजी से उबरने में मदद कर सकते हैं।

  • जितना हो सके पेय पदार्थ पीजिए- पानी, डिकैफनेटेड चाय या जूस जो भी आप पी सकते हैं वो लें इससे आप तरल पदार्थ की कमी दूर कर सकते हैं और निर्जलीकरण को रोकने में भी ये मददगार होगा।
  • शराब, दूध या कैफीनयुक्त पेय पदार्थों को पूरी तरह अवॉयड करने की कोशिश करें।
  • नरम खाद्य पदार्थ खाना शुरू करें जैसे- चावल, केला, टोस्ट, आदि।
  • मसालेदार भोजन, तले हुए खाद्य पदार्थ, डेयरी और हाई फैट खाद्य पदार्थों से बचें।
  • अपने खाने में प्रोबायोटिक्स लेना शुरु करें, प्रोबायोटिक्स आंतों में गुड वैक्टीरिया को फिर से लाने में सहायक होते हैं और आपकी सेहत को जल्दी सुधारने में सहायता करते हैं।
  • तुलसी, जीरा, सौंफ, धनिया जैसेहर्बस को ट्राई फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग के दौरान लेना शुरु करें।
  • जितना संभव हो उतना आराम करें क्योंकि फूड पॉइजनिंगथकान को बढ़ा देता है। 

ध्यान रहे अगर इतना सावधानियों और इन नुस्खों को आजमाने के बाद भी अगर आपको फूड प्वाइजनिंग से जल्दी ही आराम ना मिले तो फौरन डॉक्टर से संपर्क करें।

फूड पॉइजनिंग को दूर करने के घरेलू उपाय

1. अदरक
अदरक से हमारे व्यंजन तो स्वादिष्ट होते हैं, साथ ही यह पाचन संबंधी समस्याओं के लिए भी एक घरेलू उपाय है। एक चम्मच शहद में अदरक के रस की कुछ बूंदे मिलाकर लेने से पेट का दर्द ठीक हो जाता है।

3. एप्पल साइडर सिरका
अपने क्षारीय गुण के कारण सिरका, विशेष रूप से एप्पल साइडर सिरका गैस्ट्रो आंत्र अस्तर में आराम देने वाला होता है। यह पेट में बैक्टीरिया पनपने से रोकता है। इससे फूड पॉयजनिंग के प्रभाव को तेजी से कम किया जा सकता है।

4. तुलसी
तुलसी इन्फेक्शन के ट्रीटमेंट के लिए बहुत ही शानदार उपाय होता है। फूड पॉइजनिंग होने पर तुलसी के पत्तों के रस में एक चम्मच शहद मिलाकर खाने से आप को बहुत ही लाभ मिलाता है।

5. फल खाएं
केले में पोटैशियम की अधिक मात्रा होती है, इसलिए जब भी हमें फूड पॉइजनिंग हो तो खूब केला खाना चाहिए। केले में ऑक्सीडेंट मौजूद होता है, जो लिवर में ठंडक बनाये रखने में मददगार होता है। इसके अलावा सेब में भी यही खूबी होती है। यदि आपको फ़ूड पॉइजनिंग हो गया है तो सेब और केले को अच्छी तरह मैश कर ले, फिर इस मिश्रण को दिन में तीन से चार बार लेने से आराम मिलता है। 

6. नींबू सरबत
एक गिलास पानी में नींबू का रस, नमक, और चीनी मिलाकर एक घोल तैयार करो, फिर उस घोल को पी लें, इसे एक से दो घंटे के बीच लेते रहें।

7. पुदीना चाय
पुदीना चाय सिर्फ अरोमाथेरेपी नहीं है बल्कि पेपरमिंट तेल अपने सुखदायक प्रभाव के लिए भी जाना जाता है। फूड पॉयजनिंग से पेट की ऐंठन से पीड़‍ित लोगों के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होता है। अपनी चाय में इसकी कुछ बूंदे जोड़कर देखें, कैसे आपके पेट की ऐंठन कुछ घंटों में गायब हो जाती हैं।

8. दही
आपने हमेशा सुना होगा की दही खाने से खाना अच्छे से पचन होता है। इसलिए दही को खाना खाने से पहले और बाद में खाना चाहिए। इसमें मौजूद एंटीबैक्टीरियल गुणों की वजह से यह लिवर में मौजूद संकरण को नष्ट करता है। गर्मियों के दिनों इसके सेवन से पेट की जलन भी दूर होती है।
 
9. खिचड़ी
फूड पॉइजनिंग वाले मरीज को खिचड़ी देनी चाहिए, क्योंकि यह हल्की होने के कारण आसानी से पच जाती है।

10. खूब पिएं पानी
जब भी फूड पॉइजनिंग हो जाए तो सबसे पहले हमें इस बात पर ध्यान देना चाहिए कि शरीर में पानी की कमी न आ जाये। इसलिए हमें ज्यादा से ज्यादा पानी पीना चाहिए, साथ ही सूप, चावल का पानी, नारियल पानी, खिचड़ी, ग्लूकोज आदि लेते रहना चाहिए।
