Do You Live In A City? Then You Are Automatically At High Risk Of Cardiac Disease Anjali Nayyar
24 Jul 2017Array min read

Being a city-bee may not be all that good.

If you are a city dweller and like the hustle and bustle, beware! A research carried out at Nottingham Trent University, UK, revealed that noise fluctuation in cities, irrespective of the decibel level, can disrupt the normal cardiac rhythms. The study was conducted with participants wearing mobile body sensors that monitored their heart rate, as they shopped about in Nottingham city.  

“We found that rapid changes in noise resulted in rapid disturbance to the normal rhythm of participants’ hearts,” said researcher Dr. Eiman Kanjo of Nottingham Trent’s School of Science and Technology. If such stimulation continues, cardiovascular problems are inevitable, stresses Kanjo. The study revealed that air pressure affected heart rate and body temperature. Environmental data, including light, air pressure, and noise, was compared with physical data, that is, heartbeat, body temperature, movement, and changes in the electrodermal activities of the skin.  

The finding under discussion is validated via our day-to-day experiences – don’t we feel better when we are out holidaying, away from the hustle and bustle of the city? Nature, small towns, and the countryside slow down our body tempo and soothe our nerves. Why? Because these places are far removed from noise pollution and the incessant humming of machines. We feel relaxed, and our hearts get down to a regular rhythm.  

However, the reality is that we spend most of our lives in the city, amidst its continuous hum and chatter. What can we do then? How do we protect ourselves, and soothe our hearts and minds into a peaceful tempo?

  • Stay away from over-crowded main roads as much as you can.
  • If your home is near a bustling area, use soundproof glass for doors and windows.
  • I suggest meditation – sit in a quiet place (as quiet as it can get), relax with soothing music, and calm your mind.

Ultimately, mind rules over matter, and if you can control your mind, you will be able to control your heart, in spite of the incessant urban chatter.

This Sweet, Christmas-ey Spice Has Side-Effects You Never Knew About Lakshmi Devan

Cinnamon this, cinnamon that. Yes, of course cinnamon makes everything nicer, but a coin has two sides.

Cinnamon rolls, bread, tea, cookies, waffles, lattes, and puddings; biryani, and shahi pulao – the best of food across the world has cinnamon, and why shouldn’t it? Cinnamon is not only fragrant and flavourful; it’s also known to be good for health. Here’s how cinnamon is beneficial for you:

  • Loaded with antioxidants.
  • Has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Helps lower blood sugar levels.
  • Helps fight bacterial and fungal infections.
  • Has anti-ageing properties.
  • Is good for teeth and gums.
  • Boosts alertness and memory.
  • Helps ease PMS in women.

But as in every story, this little cinnamon-story also comes with a twist – a condition. Noted experts recommend an intake of not more than 5 grams per day. Along with flavonoids and cinnamaldehyde (which are the good health-promoting contents of cinnamon), cinnamon also contains coumarin, which is known to be toxic in relatively high doses. Here’s why your favourite dalchini may not seem so nice anymore:

  • Toxicity – A continuous cinnamon usage for over 6 months will cause a build-up of coumarin and other toxins in the body. In fact, doctors suggest taking a 1 month break from regular cinnamon use every 6 weeks. This will allow your body time to void itself of these toxins, and rejuvenate.
  • Premature labour – Cinnamon is known to induce uterine contractions and premature labour in pregnant women. So while cinnamon provides great relief from uterine cramps during menstruation, cinnamon oils and teas are believed to be better avoided during gestation.
  • Allergies – A lot of people remain allergic to cinnamon without realising it. For people who are allergic, a slightly higher intake of cinnamon can cause symptoms such as a runny nose, watery eyes, upset stomach, swelling in the hands, or even anaphylactic shock. But to be fair, these are possible reactions of any allergy; this point is just to state that cinnamon can cause it too.
  • Skin irritation – Cinnamon isn’t only used as a spice. In fact, another popular derivative of it is cinnamon oil, which is equally favourable for a number of reasons.  But when used in a concentrated quantity, it can cause an acute burning sensation, much like chilli powder. It is advisable to wear gloves while using cinnamon oil.
  • Increased heart rate – Too much cinnamon can be fatal for heart patients, as it is known to increase the heart rate and thin the blood. But this danger only exists when the usage is in more than a 2 per cent concentration.
  • Body heat – Cinnamon is great for winters, as it is known to increase body temperature, just like alcohol, black pepper, lobster, coffee, garlic, and ginger. But it is better avoided in women going through menopause, and in extremely hot weather.

The take home message here is that as long as you’re not overdoing it, you can happily enjoy an occasional cup of cinnamon tea or a roll without worrying, and absorb its benefits.

One Way To Buy Happiness – Spend Money On That Which Saves You Time Team healthhunt
17 Aug 2017Array min read

Who said you can’t buy happiness? Research seems to disagree. When participants were asked to spend money on materialistic things one weekend and on hiring a help to save them some time for themselves the next weekend, the latter scenario was seen to cause...

The old ‘money can’t buy you happiness’ claim seems to have taken a serious drubbing after a recent study that suggests that if you have money and are smart enough to spend it on the right things, it could positively impact your happiness quotient.

The research, which was carried out by a team of international experts led by Dr Ashley Whillans and Michael Norton, professors at Harvard Business School, spanned 4 countries (Unites States, Canada, Denmark, and Netherlands) and studied over 6,000 people. As part of this study, almost 60 individuals were given $40 over 2 successive weekends. The first weekend, they had to spend on material buys, and the next weekend, on engaging the services of someone who would do their odd jobs or things they disliked doing, which freed up time for these individuals to do other things. It was found that those who bought themselves additional time turned out to be much happier than those who did not.

Given the frenzied lives we lead, having any additional time is a real boon, and if people actually spend their money on getting someone to do their drudge work, the results could be brilliant. Whether it’s a gardener who is getting paid to come in and mow your lawn, a babysitter who allows you to go out for date night free of guilt, or a housekeeper who does the dishes and the laundry, spending money on these chores means you have more time to do more enjoyable things and are, as a result, happier. According to the lead researcher, “People who hire a housecleaner or pay the kid next door to mow the lawn might feel like they're being lazy, but our results suggest that buying time has similar benefits for happiness as having more money."

The study also found that spending money on experiences rather than on material things was likely to make you smile longer, as was being generous and spending money on someone else, rather than just on yourself.

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.
