What To Do If You Have Suffered From Coronary Artery Disease?

Coronary artery disease, also known as coronary heart disease or CHD, is a kind of disease in which a wax-like substance called plaque, builds up in the coronary arteries.

Function of Coronary Artery
The task of coronary arteries is to supply oxygen rich blood to the heart muscles. When there is the growth of plaque in these arteries, the condition is termed as atherosclerosis. Plaque builds up over the years, and it hardens or ruptures with time. When plaque gets hardened, it narrows the coronary arteries and thus disrupts the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscles causing coronary heart diseases. Millions of people are diagnosed with heart diseases, nowadays.

Though it is true that living with a heart disease is not easy, it is not impossible either. Many people are successfully leading a happy life in spite of having such diseases. With some major changes in your lifestyle, food habits and with the help of exercises and a healthy diet, it is possible to enjoy a happy life, irrespective of your diseases. 

Here are six ways that would help you to lead a better life, even if you have been diagnosed with coronary artery disease.

  1. Lifestyle changes: This is the first point that needs to be kept in mind if you are a CAD patient. Lifestyle changes are essential to make for a better health and life. Smoking and drinking have to be given up completely. It is advised to avoid secondary smoke, as much as possible.
  2. Exercises: This is the next important activity that needs to be a part of your daily routine to lead a healthy life. Consult with your doctor about the types of exercise that would suit your conditions. Some common exercises that would help are walking, jogging, and swimming, for at least 30 minutes at the most. Choose whichever activity you like doing. The motive of exercises is to get your heart-rate up.
  3. A Heart healthy diet: Get a chart prepared for your diet by a dietitian or by your doctor. This will keep your disease from getting worse. Stick to a heart-healthy eating plan, which consists of foods that can lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, etc. Include more fruits, vegetables, and other high fibre foods in your daily diet. Go for foods that are low in saturated fats, trans-fats, and cholesterol. Try to include fish into your diet.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight: Being overweight or obese aggravates any disease. So it is important to keep your body weight perfect.
  5. Taking medicines as prescribed: It is important to take medicines regularly and as prescribed by the physician.
  6. Keeping tensions, anxiety to a minimum: These will make the situation worse if you are CAD patient. So try to keep tension and anxiety away and lead a healthy life.

How To Get Optimal Benefits From A Deodorant For Men?

How To Get Optimal Benefits From A Deodorant For Men?

There is a vast array of options to sort through when selecting a deodorant for men. Getting the best benefits from any one of these products requires males to understand what they are and how they are designed to work. Some formulations are perfect for men with minimal body odor and minimal sweating while others are intended for men who saturate their shirts and develop pungent odors fast.

The Difference Between Deodorant And Antiperspirant

If you are the type of male who is primarily concerned with minimizing or eliminating bad body odors, the major differences between antiperspirant and deodorant probably do not concern you. The more health-conscious individual, however, understands that odor-controlling products do not have any significant impact on the performance of the sweat glands. These are glycerin based and can be applied several times throughout the day in order to maintain a fresh smell.

Conversely, antiperspirants are exactly what their title suggests. They combat the natural act of sweating so that people not only stay fresher, but dryer as well. These tend to be preferred by men who are prone to developing large and conspicuous wet spots under their arms throughout the day. Sweat stains are highly noticeable and embarrassing, even when odor-control products are being used. A deodorant for men will help to prevent unfortunate aromas from emanating from sweat stains, but unlike antiperspirants, do little to minimize or prevent their visibility.

Developing A Short-Term Intolerance To Antiperspirants

An antiperspirant might seem like the ideal solution to a major sweating problem, however, it is important to note that sweating is how the body rids itself of harmful toxins. Thus, it is not always beneficial to an individual to have the sweat ducts blocked entirely throughout all hours of the day. Some of the most effective antiperspirant products boast around the clock protection, which means that the sweat ducts are not conducting their normal business at any time if these products are continually present on the skin.

Some men can don these products with no adverse affects whatsoever. They can experience the benefits of having dry and clean-smelling underarms at all hours. Others can develop blocked ducts or sore, swollen lumps in their armpits. The best way to eliminate these is by forgoing antiperspirant products for a short period and allowing this area to rid itself of trapped toxins.

Making Your Deodorant Work More Effectively

Deciding to give your body a break from antiperspirants does not relegate you to walking around with a near permeable stench. A deodorant for men may not stop sweating, but it will significantly reduce unpleasant odors. In order to avoid the development of blocked ducts, men can alternate between two quality formulations. For instance, a strong antiperspirant will help males to avoid embarrassing sweat stains during the work week, while a quality deodorant for men will stave off unpleasant smells during the weekends, when the sweat ducts can be allowed to clean themselves out.

How To Do Sexual Meditation?

How To Do Sexual Meditation?

Close your eyes.     When you are ready, you and your partner can close your eyes and start the meditation. Then, try to remain aware of your surroundings at first. Pay attention to your body, your breath, and any sounds that you hear.

  • Try to ignore intrusive thoughts and simply focus on the present moment. If a thought pops into your head, acknowledge the thought and then let it pass. For example, if you think of something that happened at work, then you might think to yourself, “yes, that happened,” and then picture the thought drifting away.

Focus on your space and breathing.    As you meditate, focus on your space and breathing. Take deep, soothing breaths and pay attention to air entering and leaving your body. As you breathe in, pull the air down into your abdomen and imagine stress leaving your body as you exhale.

  • Try to be aware of yourself and how you feel. Take stock of how the air feels around your body, how all your different body parts feel from your hands to your feet.

Visualize your body.    As the meditation starts, visualize your own body. Think about how your body looks inside and out as well as how your body's energy looks. Think about the shapes, colors, and sounds of your current feelings. For example, you might imagine the desire that you are feeling for your partner looks like a red orb.

  • Focus on your physical sensations. Try to be as aware of your own body and the sensations you're feeling as possible. The goal of sexual meditation is heightened awareness, which can lead to increased sexual arousal.

Focus on your partner.   Once you're done visualizing yourself, shift focus to your partner. Try to think about your partner’s body and emotions at this moment.

  • Look at your partner. You can open your eyes and look into your partner’s eyes. Make sure that you notice your partner's breathing as well. Glance at the movements of your partner’s body.
  • For example, you might watch your partner’s stomach and chest as they fill with air and then deflate again.
  • Communicate with your partner without speaking. Try to use your face, hands, and eyes to show your partner what you are feeling. Watch your partner's expressions as well. Try to see what he or she is feeling as well.

Move onto sexual intercourse.   After about 20 minutes of sexual meditation, transition into sexual intercourse. If intercourse is more enjoyable after sexual meditation, talk to your partner about doing regular sexual meditations.

भागदौड़ की जिंदगी में होने वाले तनाव के कारण भी सेक्स समस्या पैदा करती है

 भागदौड़ की जिंदगी में होने वाले तनाव के कारण भी सेक्स समस्या पैदा करती है 

हर व्यक्ति अपना वैवाहिक जीवन खुशहाल रखना चाहता है। जिसके लिए वह हर संभव प्रयास भी करता है ।
लेकिन कई बार व्यक्ति को कुछ ऐसी बीमारियां घेर लेती है जिससे वह न सिर्फ अनजान होता है बल्कि उसका वैवाहिक जीवन भी बिखर जाता है। व्यक्ति को विभिन्न आयु में सेक्स संबंधी रोग, सेक्स विकार,  सेक्स हार्मोंन संबंधी समस्याएं आने लगती है।  सेक्स रोग और विकारों से बचने के लिए, लोग दवाओं का सेवन करते हैं लेकिन वे इस बात से अनजान रहते हैं कि दवाओं के सेवन से सेक्स हार्मोंस में गड़बड़ हो सकती है, जिससे कई बार सेक्स मे रूचि कम हो जाती है। बहरहाल, आइए जानें सेक्स इच्छा में कमी के कारणों को ।

कई बार दवाओं के सेवन का सेक्स लाइफ पर प्रभाव पडता है। ऐसी कई दवाईयां है जिनके सेवन से सेक्स हार्मोन्स पर गहरा असर होता है। हालांकि आपकी सेक्स लाइफ के प्रति अरूची सिर्फ दवाओं की वजह से ही हो यह भी जरूरी नहीं।
कुछ ऐसी दवाईयां है जो आप अपनी आम बीमारियों को दूर करने के लिए लेते हैं लेकिन उन दवाओं के सेवन से आपकी सेक्स इच्छा में कमी आ सकती है। जैसे- उच्च रक्तचाप की दवाएं, हार्मोंन संबंधी दवाईयां, पेनकिलर्स, अस्थमा में ली जाने वाली दवाईयां, एंटी डिप्रेसेंट दवाएं, अल्सर  की दवाएं ऐसी हैं जिनके नियमित लेने से सेक्स में रूचि कम होने लगती हैं।
  
व्यक्ति अचानक से सेक्स के दौरान घबरा जाए तो जल्दी शीघ्रपतन का शिकार हो जाता है । कई बार शीघ्रपतन के कारण भी सेक्स इच्छा में कमी होने लगती है।
कई बार सेक्स संबंधी भ्रम और  (डिप्रेशन) भी सेक्स में कम रूचि होने का कारण बनते हैं। दोस्तों और अन्य माध्यमों से ली गई गलत जानकारियां, कुछ बुरे अनुभव, सेक्स के प्रति पूरी तरह से जागरूक न होने से भी सेक्स‍ इच्छा में कमी आने की संभावना रहती है।
परिवार की जिम्मेदारियों का बोझ और भागदौड़ की जिंदगी में होने वाले तनाव के कारण भी सेक्स इच्छा में कमी आ जाती है ।

प्रोस्टेट ग्रंथि के अधिक बढ़ जाने यानी सेक्स विकार से भी सेक्स हार्मोंस में बदलाव आता है ।
शरीर में टेस्टोरॉन हार्मोंन के स्तर में कमी आने से सेक्स करने की इच्छा कम हो जाती है ।
शरीर में सेक्स संबंधी कमजोरी आने से यानी शरीर में कोई रोग हो जाए तो उसका सबसे ज्यादा प्रभाव सेक्स शक्ति पर पड़ता है । 
ये तमाम ऐसे कारण है जिनसे सेक्स इच्छा में कमी आ जाती है । कई बार महिला सेक्स विकार होने या फिर विभिन्न आयु में सेक्स संबंधी परेशानियों से सेक्स में व्यक्ति की रूचि कम हो जाती हैं। सेक्स संबंधी कोई भी विकार या रोग होने पर तुरंत डॉक्टर्स से संपर्क करना चाहिए और जल्द से जल्द उसका इलाज कराना चाहिए।

Mindless Munching - What Should You Do To Control It?

Mindless munching is usually caused by boredom as well as stress and fatigue, in many cases. Also, not eating your meals on time is another reason why we suddenly feel hungry and end up eating all types of wrong food. This kind of mindless munching usually makes us ingest empty calories, which can make us put on weight and face other health issues in the long run as well. Many of these snacks also contain lots of oil, fat and salt which can cause a range of diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular conditions.

So, how can you cut down on mindless munching? Read on to know more!

  • Variety: Eat all colors of food in order to get more variety, but limit the variety to more healthy food. Keep the various kinds of chips and wafers away from your home and pantry so that you have no choice, but to snack on fruit and dry fruit as well as other healthy options when the munchies strike!
  • Be deliberate and present: When you eat slowly, you allow the satisfaction of a good meal to wash over you. This ensures that you have less scope to indulge in mindless eating later. Also, you will feel fuller when you have been more deliberate and present with your meal. This can be done by switching off all devices and the television or smart phone, in particular and actually taking the time to enjoy your food. Many psychologists say that distractions tend to make us eat more, and more often. So it is best to cut these out before you start eating.

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