The Burden Of Undernutrition May Be Weighing India Down, Says Global Report Dr. Khoobsurat Najma
17 Nov 2017Array min read

The Global Nutrition Report 2017 shows that over half of the women in the reproductive age group suffer from anaemia in our country.

According to a global report released recently, India is facing a serious burden of undernutrition. The report shows that over half of the women in the reproductive age group suffer from anaemia in our country. The Global Nutrition Report 2017 collected data from 140 countries and found a significant burden of 3 important forms of malnutrition that were used as an indicator of assessing broader trends. These parameters of malnutrition were – anaemia in women of reproductive age, childhood stunting, and overweight adult women.  

Recent numbers suggest that about 38 per cent of children under the age of 5 years are affected by what is known as stunting – a nutritional deficiency in which children are too short for their age, due to improper diet and a lack of essential nutrients. Stunting causes irreversible brain damage.  

The report also suggested that about 21 per cent of children under the age of 5 were 'wasted' or 'severely wasted'. This means that they did not weigh enough for their age.  

Around half of the women in the reproductive age group (51 per cent) were found to suffer from anaemia. Anaemia is a serious health problem that can adversely affect the health of the mother as well as that of the child. Over 22 per cent of women are found to be overweight, which is a rising global concern.

Malnutrition child eating

As per the report, while India has made some progress in addressing under-5 stunting, there is no progress, and even worse are the trends of women of a reproductive age who have anaemia. In terms of reducing adult obesity in women, there is no positive trend or signs of any improvement. As per the report, due to the double burden of undernutrition and obesity, it becomes imperative that the problem is addressed and tackled with urgency.

  The Global Nutrition Report also found that 88 per cent of countries that were included in the study faced a severe burden of 2 or 3 forms of malnutrition. The report has highlighted how this burden could lead to damaging consequences as far as global development efforts are concerned.

In the report, it was also found that obesity and being overweight were on the rise in almost all the countries that were included in the report. There are over 2 billion people, out of 7 billion, who are either obese or overweight in the world today. Considering these disturbing trends, it is postulated that the chances of halting obesity by 2025 are less than 1 per cent! What is alarming is the fact that currently, 16 per cent of men and 22 per cent of women in India are overweight. This means that our country is facing contradicting nutritional problems of undernutrition and obesity. What is needed is a dynamic national nutritional strategy that can cater to the varied socio-economic divide of this country, and halt both these disturbing nutritional trends.

Reading Too Many Baby Books Can Trigger Postpartum Depression In New Mothers, Finds Study Parul Gupta
20 Nov 2017Array min read

The fact is that all baby and parenting books give different kinds of advice. The new-age parenting tips include things like not picking up your little one the moment he/she cries, stretching the gaps between feeds, creating fixed sleep routines etc.

If you’re going to have a baby, then your side table is probably full of books related to pregnancy, how to take care of your baby, baby this, baby that. It’s a mad list. As new parents, we all want to be prepared for whatever the new addition to our lives is going to bring. So we read books, surf the net, watch videos, and are totally charged by the time we bring the baby home.

Reality check! For most people, everything does not happen as per the book, and life can get pretty stressful and traumatic. Now, a new study, conducted at Swansea University, has found that the more books new mommies read, the more the chances of them suffering from postpartum depression and feeling less confident in their parenting abilities.

The research was carried out Victoria Harries and Dr Amy Brown. The study involved 354 new mothers, with a baby between the ages of 0 and 12 months. They were asked if they read parenting books, how the books made them feel, and then they completed measures of their mental health and wellbeing.

Ms Harries said, “What was interesting about our research was that mothers’ experiences of using the books really seemed to matter. If mothers found the books useful, they were not at increased risk of depression or low confidence. However, if mothers felt worse after reading the books, they were at greater risk. Unfortunately, far more mothers found the books had a negative impact than a positive one. Whilst 22 per cent reported that they felt calmer after reading the books, 53 per cent felt more anxious”.

Dr Brown said, “In some cases, these books might help new mothers, but I think they may be working for babies who are suited towards a routine. Although some parents might be lucky and have a very easy-going baby, it is completely normal for most babies to want lots of interaction and will communicate their annoyance very loudly if they do not get it. Trying to go against these needs doesn’t work, not least because babies haven’t read the books!”

The fact is that all baby and parenting books give different kinds of advice. The new-age parenting tips include things like not picking up your little one the moment he/she cries, stretching the gaps between feeds, creating fixed sleep routines etc. However, in real life, babies actually need to be fed every few hours; they want to be held close to their mamas, and things don’t work out the way these books say they should. Also, waking up often at night is also normal – even adults wake up at night, so how can one expect babies to be different? It’s just that they take longer to go back to sleep.

Read the complete study ->Swansea University Study On Postpartum Depression & Baby Books

According to Harries, “Of course, it could be that mothers who already have symptoms of anxiety and depression are more drawn to the book. However, the fact that lots of mothers did not find them useful suggests that they may end up feeling even more unsure of themselves. It is easy to understand the appeal of these books if you are exhausted and worried about how often your baby is waking up, but almost half of the mothers in the study ended up feeling frustrated and misled because they were unable to make the advice work. Unfortunately, a fifth reported that they felt like a failure because of this”.

Parenthood has now become difficult. Earlier, there was a lot of family support and the new mother had help. Now, most people are living on their own, and need to return to work while their baby is still very small. So sleepless nights, coupled with running off to work in the morning, can really sap one of their energy and peace of mind. So it’s obvious that mothers will turn to these parenting and baby books to help them and guide them through this difficult period. When they can’t do it all, that’s when depression sets in.

We should be actually looking for ways to support the new mom community. The solution lies in providing support systems, whether by family, the government, or by the place of work of the mother, and in not making anyone feel ashamed of the way they parent. After all, we’re all trying our best.

Varicose Veins: Here’s How You Can Cure Them Naturally Mansi Kohli
15 Feb 2017Array min read

Varicose veins can be a ‘webbed’ mess to deal with. Thankfully, there are ways to treat varicose veins naturally.

Did you know that even though you can be super fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can still have varicose veins? Not only this, did you know that this condition may occur in any part of your body, but mostly strikes in the lower extremities? Varicose veins, also known as varicosities, occur when your veins get dilated, enlarged, or are overfilled with blood. They are mostly of a bluish-purplish-reddish hue, and can often appear swollen or raised.   So, what exactly causes varicose veins? Varicose veins mainly happen when your veins aren’t functioning properly. Our veins only have one-way valves, and they do not let blood flow backwards. When these valves fail, blood begins to gather in the veins, instead of going towards your heart. They mostly accumulate on the legs, because of gravity, and hence go further away from the heart. Apart from this, smoking, obesity, and even sitting and standing for long periods of time can lead to this condition. You can also get it if you suffer from chronic heart valve conditions, are pregnant, or are going through menopause. Its symptoms might range from pain in the feet, to swelling of the ankles, skin ulceration, and heavy bleeding, in case of vein injury.   Varicose veins’ natural treatment options:

  1. Drink your daily dose of water – Drinking 7-8 glasses of water in a day helps in softening your stool, and aids in smooth bowel movement. Hence, there is less strain on the veins of your leg. This also helps in preventing haemorrhoids, along with flushing out toxins from the body, and helping you lose weight.
  2. Soothe those muscles with a massage – Exacerbated varicose veins leads to pooling of blood in the veins, which leads to lax walls inside the veins to expand and twist from their original shape. Getting periodic massages with gentle upward strokes can not only help in increasing blood circulation, but can also help in smoothening out the twisted veins. Make sure that the therapist does not massage directly on the bulging vein, but around the veins, with olive or coconut oil.
  3. Be friends with compression stockings – A pair of compression socks or stockings, when worn in office, while driving, or while simply lounging in front of TV at home, can help you in getting rid of varicose veins. However, before buying one, do not forget to check the compression level or the length of your stockings, and also make sure you consult with your doctor before buying one, as you wouldn’t want to use them in case you suffer from arterial disease.
  4. Use an apple cider vinegar remedy – A wonderfully effective treatment for varicose veins, apple cider vinegar is a natural body cleansing product, which can be both applied and consumed in moderate quantities. Apply undiluted apple cider vinegar over the varicose veins and gently massage the area right before going to bed. You can also consume two teaspoons mixed with a glass of water, twice a day, to see positive results in terms of reduced size of the varicose veins.
  5. Consume an anti-inflammatory diet – Ditch foods that are high in trans fats, caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and processed foods, as they can contribute liberally to hormonal imbalances, blood pressure problems, and weight gain. Instead, consume at least 30-40 grams of high-fibre foods daily, such as foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fresh fruits, vegetables, and sprouted or soaked legumes. High-antioxidant foods, and foods that are packed with flavonoids, and vitamins C and E, are great natural blood thinners that also prevent blood clotting.

You can also lie down on the bed while keeping your feet in an elevated position, or use a fuller’s earth mud pack to help reduce vein enlargement. Which out of these remedies for varicose veins worked for you? Do let us know!

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.
