12 Ways To Optimise Your Digestion Anjali Nayyar Anjali Nayyar
14 Dec 2018Array min read

The simplest of things can make a world of difference.

[:en]Proper digestion is the secret to good health. Constipation, bloating, gas, and acid reflux are signs of poor digestion, and need immediate attention. Poor digestion results in poor absorption, leading to deficiencies and weight gain. Hence, it becomes imperative to take care of one’s digestion. Here’s how:
  1. Chew your food properly – It is very important to take small bites, and chew your food properly before swallowing. It is rightly said that digestion begins in the mouth. The saliva in the mouth semi-digests the food during mastication, making the work of the digestive system easier.
  2. While eating, stick to just eating – Nowadays, people are mostly engaged in other activities while eating, including watching TV, working on the computer, reading, etc. These extra activities hamper digestion, as the mind is not fully present in the act of eating. The mind being diverted leads to not chewing the food properly, and overeating.
  3. Don’t eat fast – In these fast-paced times, people just want to finish eating quickly, and get on with other work. This results in under-chewing, gulping food down, improper digestion, bloating, belly fat, etc. One must eat s-l-o-w-l-y, and with care.
  4. Always sit and have your meal – Meals should not be had standing, or while on the run. The body needs to be relaxed during mealtimes. With the nervous system relaxed, the digestive process works better.

5. Add digestive spices to your food – While cooking complex protein or heavy foods, add spices that aid digestion, such as cumin, coriander, asafoetida, pepper, cinnamon, etc. These not only enhance the flavour of the food, but also help in breaking down complex molecules.

6. Keep proteins to small portions – Proteins are difficult to digest, and often lead to bloating and excessive intestinal fermentation. Keep the intake of the proteins small and light.

7. A small dose of raw, organic apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar helps digestion, and having a little bit of this vinegar mixed with water, before meals, will help the secretion of digestive juices. Of course, one must not do this in excess.

8. Digestive tea – Tea, devoid of milk, has digestive properties, especially green tea and chamomile tea. Therefore, drinking a small cup of tea after your meal is a good habit to cultivate.

9. Avoid inflammatory foods – Refined and packaged foods, apart from being unhealthy, can also cause inflammation in the gut. It is better to avoid these foods and concentrate on fresh, home-cooked food.

10. Include healthy probiotics – Good bacteria are a must for proper digestion and a healthy gut. These bacteria are found in probiotic drinks, yoghurt, fermented foods etc. A regular intake of these is helpful for the digestive system.

11. Practice yoga – There are certain exercises, especially yogic ones, which are excellent for digestion. A couple of these are vajrasana and pawanmuktasana. Learn these exercises, and practice them for a healthy gut.

Try this - JURU Mandala Cork Yoga Matpasted image 0 (5)

12. Follow the 80/20 rule – It is important not to eat to your full, and to definitely not overeat. When the stomach is 20 per cent empty, digestion is better, as the food can be churned better. Just as you would not overstuff your washing machine, do not overstuff your stomach!

13. Beware of antacids – We are in the habit of gulping antacids at the drop of a hat, but beware! Poor digestion is not always due to excess acid secretion, which we try to suppress with antacids, but could also be due to the under secretion of stomach acids. So first, investigate!

The tips above are general guidelines to improve your digestion. For curing digestive problems, the first port of call must be a doctor, who will be able to detect the underlying cause/s of the problem, and suggest cures.[:]

7 Tips For Healthy Winter Scalp And Hair Team healthhunt Team healthhunt
15 Dec 2018Array min read

The winter months are challenging for your crown - both scalp and hair. But let that not scare you. You deserve nothing but gorgeous hair!

[:en]Cold winds and low humidity are responsible for the skin getting dry in the winter. Couple that with hot showers and indoor heating, and your skin is left with almost no moisture to keep itself hydrated. This also affects your scalp, and the quality of your hair. Your hair starts looking dull and lifeless, and your scalp could get dry and flaky. So how can you remedy that, and sport a lustrous mane this holiday season? Read on!
  1. Change your routine – The routine that worked for your hair in the summer will not work for it in the winter. Dull, frizzy, and brittle hair is the clue. You need to cut down on the number of times that you shampoo your hair.

You should also change your shampoo, and find one which moisturises your scalp, like a dry scalp shampoo. These are formulated to keep your scalp moisturised, even after you rinse it off. A DIY hair mask would put the shine back in your hair too.

Soak a cup of red hibiscus petals overnight. Make a paste of it, and add olive oil. Apply it to your scalp, wash off after an hour, and see the results.

2. Turn the temperature down in the bath – Nothing like a hot shower on a cold winter morning, right? Unfortunately, hot water is not good for your skin or your hair. Hot water can dry out your hair, and damage the delicate skin on your scalp. Shower with warm water, instead.

3. Hot oil massage – A flaky, itchy scalp can be quite embarrassing. If that’s you, sort out your hair issues this winter, with a hot oil massage. If you want to pamper yourself, go get a massage at a salon, or else apply castor, olive, almond, or coconut oil to your scalp, and massage it in well before you go to bed. It really helps.

4. Lose the heat – Air drying is the best way to dry your hair. Avoid blow drying your hair often during the winter months. However, if you have to use a hair dryer, opt for a leave-in conditioner when you wash your hair, and switch the setting on the dryer to low or medium.

Flat irons and curling irons should also be used less frequently. A twisted knot or a braid could help you get the tousled look, instead.

5. Invest in a humidifier – Heaters tend to dry your hair and skin out. So invest in a good humidifier that helps put the moisture back in the air, helping both your hair and your skin.

6. Protect your hair when outside – Caps, hats, and scarves are excellent fashion statements. But they are also a great way to add a protective layer over your hair, before you step out in the cold winter wind. Keep the headgear slightly loose-fitted – you wouldn’t want to stop blood circulation in your scalp.

7. Eat up – Beauty shines through from the inside. What you eat shows both on your skin and your hair. Make sure your diet includes healthy fats and fresh vegetables.

Our favourite things to eat are chia seeds, flaxseeds, almonds, eggs, avocados, spinach, tomatoes, and carrots. Also remember to stay hydrated. We tend to skimp on our water intake during the cold months, which can have adverse effects on your hair and skin.

6 Warning Signs Of Cervical Cancer Nirmala Chandra shekar Nirmala Chandra shekar

In India, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women between 15 and 44 years of age.

[:en]
Image source: http://gynemedicorp.com/
The number of patients afflicted by cancer in India has doubled over the past 26 years and the most commonly diagnosed cancers are breast cancer, cervical cancer, oral cancer, and lung cancer.It is essential for women to know the requisite information on the available screening techniques needed for diagnosis and treatment of cervical cancer. Women are diagnosed with cervical cancer when abnormal cells in the lining of the cervix grow at a rapid rate. Initially, it’s not cancerous, but over a period of time, these precancerous cells transform into cancer cells.There are various symptoms that can indicate the chance of cervical cancer, such as, foul-smelling vaginal discharge, bleeding between menstrual periods, bleeding after sexual intercourse, lower back, pelvic or appendix pain, et cetera.image3
Image source: http://healthitis.blogspot.com/
  1. Foul-smelling vaginal discharge: Usually, some vaginal discharge is normal to keep the tissues healthy and to protect against infections. However, vaginal discharge which is continuous, pale, watery, brown or mixed with blood, can be a sign of cervical cancer.
  1. Pain during sexual intercourse: Pain during intercourse is one of the signs of cervical cancer. Discomfort during intercourse can be caused due to tumour growth in the tissues, which further spreads to the reproductive organs.
  1. Lower back, pelvic or appendix pain: We usually ignore back pain by blaming it on bad posture, but lower back and pelvic pain can be linked to problems with reproductive organs, such as the cervix; back pain can be caused because of the cancer spreading to the nerves and ligaments.
Pelvic pain- higher up, occurs only when the cancer is at an advanced stage.
  1. Leg pain and swelling: Leg pain and swelling is caused when the cancer grows to an advanced stage and it starts pressing the lymph nodes or the veins in the pelvic wall. Due to the consistent pressure on the vein, it causes swelling of the leg.
  1. Loss of appetite or unexplained weight loss: Reduced appetite can be one of the signs of cervical cancer. An unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite can be considered a reason to consult a doctor. Sometimes, regardless of how much food is consumed, weight loss continues to be a major problem for women with cervical cancer. During stage 4 cervical cancer, women witness changes in metabolism associated with metastatic cancer, in which unintentional weight loss is a prominent symptom.
  1. Uncomfortable and irregular urination: Trouble in urination occurs when there is a blockage of the urinary bladder or involvement of bladder wall due to spread of cervical cancer. The person suffering from the disease also tends to have a frequent urge to use the restroom and experience difficulty in controlling urine.
Prevention and Treatment Method for Cervical CancerAn early Pap smear test helps in early detection of the cancer cells found in cervix.Pap smear, which is also called a Pap test is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. The test can reveal changes in the cells on the cervix (opening of the uterus). During the routine procedure, the doctor gently scrapes away cells from the cervix, to examine any abnormal growth. It may be mildly uncomfortable, but is a quick and painless procedure, that screens for cervical cancer.Who needs a Pap smear?image2
Image source: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/
Most women should start getting regular Pap smears at age 21 or within 3 years of onset of sexual activity. Over 30 years and with three normal Pap tests in a row, it can be done every 3 years, if combined with a human papillomavirus (HPV) screening. HPV causes warts and HPV strains that can cause cervical cancer are HPV 16 and 18.If a person is diagnosed with HPV, there is an increased risk of developing cervical cancer.Regular Pap smears are required even if the woman is in a monogamous relationship, because HPV can be dormant for years, and then suddenly become active.Dr. Nirmala Chandrashekar is a Consultant- Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Gynaecologic Oncology, at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals.[:]

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
