The Hidden Culprit Behind Anxiety And Depression Might Be In Your Gut Team healthhunt
08 Aug 2017Array min read

Feeling depressed or anxious? It might be a gut flora imbalance, one of the main hidden culprits that leads to anxiety.

There are times when you feel restless, anxious, even a tad depressed, and are unable to pinpoint the root cause of this anxiety. But did you know, the bad bacteria housed in your gut plays a huge role in contributing to this anxiety? In recent years, neuroscientists have been studying the link between the brain and bacteria in the gut, and there is enough evidence to prove that your gut health and mental health have a close connection.

What is gut flora?

The gut is made up of both good and bad bacteria. They play an important role in digestion, and are also responsible for the overall health of a person. Healthy or good bacteria keep the tummy strong, and ensure that the intestinal tract is primed for any trouble. If there are not enough good bacteria in your gut, you could get ulcers and that, in turn, could lead to digestive issues, such as food that cannot be broken down passing into the bloodstream and disrupting the body's normal functioning.

Suggested Read - https://www.healthhunt.in/do-you-have-a-healthy-gut-the-vital-significance-of-healthy-gut-flora/

The brain link 

Recent research suggests that this bacteria actually influences, and even changes, your brain chemistry and overall behaviour patterns. It is a known fact that those who have digestive issues, or suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the like are prone to be more anxious than others. There is also evidence to suggest that if you add good bacteria to your diet in the form of probiotics, anxiety levels reduce. While preliminary studies have focused on conducting these studies on mice, there is now enough evidence to suggest that the same applies to humans as well. In the case of mice, when the vagus nerve, which connects the stomach to the brain, was severed, anxiety levels came down drastically, further cementing the belief that the two are closely linked.

Influencing production of the happy hormone 

It has been noted that microbes and bacteria that are housed in the gut influence production of both serotonin and dopamine. Since more than 90 per cent of the serotonin in our body is found in the gut, and is what keeps you happy and healthy, this neurotransmitter’s role in mental health is crucial. A 2014 study used rats, who exhibited signs of depression, to study the role of probiotics in making the gut whole again, and in turn, influencing the happiness quotient. When given a strain of probiotics, these rats were less anxious and depressed.

Role of probiotics 

Probiotics are essentially good bacteria, and are often used to combat poor intestinal health. A study, conducted at UCLA in 2016, found that women who ate yoghurt and other foods with similar probiotics almost every day, had an ‘altered brain function in both a resting state and when performing an emotion-recognition task’. So while the evidence is still sketchy, more and more studies are pointing towards the connection between the two. So give probiotics a thumbs up, cultivate good bacteria, and watch your mood lift!str

How about some skin advice, straight from the expert? We got hold of Dr Rashmi Shetty, Celebrity Cosmetic Dermatologist, and Author of ‘Age Erase’, as she reveals the ultimate solutions to these skin woes.

India’s famous – and favourite! – dermatologists demystify common skin hassles for you. Read on!

Teenage Acne

Even though the acne may go, sometimes, acne scars don’t! If you’re careless, they can be difficult to get rid of, despite the plethora of available modern technology.

Know your acne:

  • It can be fixed.
  • Topical creams aren’t that effective on hormonal acne.
  • In fact, most topical applications cause redness/inflammation, as younger people are tempted to slather them on, in hopes of speedier results.
  • Identify the right face wash for your particular condition.
  • Moisturising doesn’t always equate to oiliness. It is needed to keep the skin hydrated, supple, and less prone to the dryness caused by environmental aggravators/acne. A moisturiser is mandatory, therefore, even for oily skin.

Don’t:

  • Pinch/burst acne.
  • Scratch/peel dried acne scabs.
  • Forcibly squeeze whiteheads/blackheads. I personally don’t believe in the efficacy of blackhead removal strips either.
  • Apply harsh cosmetic scrubs on young skin. Whilst its ‘youth’ allows it to handle experimentation, that’s no reason to strip it of its natural vitality by treating it as a test-laboratory for product after product.

Do:

  • Choose a creamy, gentle exfoliator to keep the pores unclogged. If the mixture has beads, make sure they’re smooth, not large/jagged.
  • Maintain a balanced diet with a wholesome mix of greens, animal/plant sources of essential fatty acids, and antioxidants; and lots of water!
  • Continue your intake of oils. It’s a question of moderation, not complete abstinence.
  • Research your need for health supplements; and be constructive about intake.

Dark Circles

Not all dark circles are curable, and not all are ‘skin’ issues. Sometimes, deep-set eyes cast shadows, which magnify the perceived presence of dark circles.

Know your dark circles:

  • Dark circles are genetic.
  • They indicate an iron deficiency.
  • The skin in the ‘hollow’ under the eye is very sensitive, and requires special, different care. Underestimating this need reverses efforts to remedy the problem of dark circles.

Don’t:

  • Be careless about eye make-up removal before bed.
  • Ignore your lack of sleep/healthy eating.
  • Rub your eyes harshly.
  • Indulge in under-eye fillers without advice/supervision from an experienced professional. It’s not one of those things you can hope to steal a bargain out of.

Do:

  • Ensure your moisturiser has hypoallergenic ingredients.
  • Wash your face with a gentle face wash, in lukewarm or cold water.
  • Use an under-eye cream at night.
  • Use emulsifying cosmetics. Emulsifiers bind lubricating ingredients that don’t usually blend together, like oil/water. They keep hydration intact; and you refrain from falling into the trap of over-application.

Hair Thinning

You may be familiar with standard causes of hair thinning, like ‘hard’ water, hormonal imbalance, or seasonal transitions. There are others:

  • Imbalanced nutrition, i.e., iron deficiency and/or excessive protein; and
  • Harsh combing techniques/overly tight braids and ponytails, etc.

Don’t:

  • Use the hairdryer/flat iron too often.
  • Brush your hair unnecessarily.
  • Use conflicting styling products. This leads to gradual build up on the scalp, or dries out hair and pushes the scalp’s oil secretion into overdrive.

Do:

  • Go back to old-school hair-oiling rituals.
  • Get periodic hormone tests.
  • Towel-dry your hair when you can, and keep your hair in the towel-turban to lock in the immediate moisture after your shower.
  • Explore safer, healthier therapies with a permanent impact, whereby scalp injections, to stimulate blood circulation, are combined with the appropriate hormonal diagnostics, oral medications, and food/nutrition plans, to give your hair a fresh lease on life.

Include These Negative Calorie Foods In Your Diet To Help Weight Loss Parul Gupta
14 Sep 2017Array min read

Chomp more and lose more with these ‘negative-calorie’ foods. If you’re wondering if that’s even possible, then the answer is yes. Read on.

What are negative-calorie foods?

Negative-calorie foods are those that require more energy to digest, than the food energy they actually provide. These foods are said to improve your metabolism, and help with effective weight loss. Negative-calorie foods are normally fibre-rich and high in water content.

How do they work?

It’s simple mathematics. If it takes more energy to digest it, than the energy it provides, it’s helping you lose weight. Also, your body takes longer to burn fibre-based food. So when you consume negative-calorie food, your metabolism starts working continuously to break it down. This gives your body the extra push it needs to lose weight. Due to their low-fat content, you can eat your fill, and not have to worry about weight gain.

What to eat:

  • Celery – 1 cup of celery contains only 19 calories. Munching and digesting it takes a lot more than 19 calories, and that is why it ranks as the top negative-calorie food. It is also recommended for its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Cucumbers – Cucumbers are mostly made up of water, and a 300 gm cucumber contains only about 45 calories. Eat it with the skin, to completely avail its nutritional benefits.
  • Fruits – Grapefruit, berries, apples, and watermelon – also called 'water fruits’, due to their high water content. They fill you up fast, and their fibre-water content matrix makes your body work harder.
  • Salad greensEating salad that contains lettuce, rocket, and arugula is definitely recommended. However, slathering on loads of salad dressing is not, as those are usually full of sugar, fat, and calories.
  • Chillies – These contain a compound called capsaicin, which helps boost your metabolism, and get rid of those extra calories pretty fast. So definitely add these mouth-burning sensations to your meal, which will also help curb your appetite.
  • Coffee – Yes, that cup of java which helps us through the day, is a zero calorie add-on. However, it should be had black, and in moderation. Addition of sugar or milk will increase the calorie content, and defeat the purpose.
  • Tomatoes – Full of lycopene, this is one of the best things to include in your diet. They are super healthy, and are low in calorie content too. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant, which helps reduce heart issues.
  • Lean meats – Chicken and pork are not strictly a negative-calorie food. But since they are excellent sources of protein, they make the body work harder to digest them, while keeping you satiated for long. This, in turn, amps up metabolism, and helps burn those extra calories.

You have our recommendations. Now you will have to figure out how effectively the diet works best for you. Learn to space the foods out over the course of the day. Just because you can consume unlimited quantities of most of these negative-calorie foods doesn’t mean you stuff yourself without caring about portion size. Keep varying the diet from time to time, and make sure you maintain an active lifestyle.

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.
