Being healthy and losing weight can sound so simple like, ‘Eat less, be more active’. But as anyone who has ever tried to lose a few kilos knows that putting that into actual practice can be really difficult. Also, when it comes to eating, we have habits that have almost grown with us, and are now difficult to change. Changing old misguided eating patterns are necessary, however instead of going for a radical change try replacing them slowly. Replace all your old, incorrect eating habits with new, improved ones.

The liver plays a crucial role in keeping the body and the bloodstream free of all toxins besides performing a host of other important functions. It supplies glucose to the blood whenever one has low blood sugar or hypoglycaemia. It stores glucose in the form of glycogen, vitamins A, D, and B, and minerals such as iron and copper. It acts like a ‘washing machine’ and is the main organ involved in the natural detoxification process. A healthy liver eliminates toxins efficiently by either deactivating them or by adding a chemical substance to the toxin to get rid of it. Unless the liver functions properly, we cannot lose excess weight and gain health. Here are a few things that tell you that your liver needs a wash: Feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal Feeling bloated after heavy meals is one of the first indications that your liver needs cleaning.

Amongst the many factors that lead to high blood pressure like smoking, alcohol intake, obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance etc, stress seems to be a major player in precipitating high blood pressure. Although stress is universal, individual responses to stress are different for eg. You have the Type A personality, highly pressure prone and totally work oriented. He or she is usually aggressive, short-tempered, with a capacity to work more than others. He/She is not interested in any fun-loving activity and considers it a waste of time. He/She is always striving to be rewarded and noticed. He not only is a hard worker but also drives people around him to deliver and enjoys being internally stressed. Such a person is usually more prone to develop hypertension than a relatively easy going person. Stress will cause high blood pressure in a stress sensitive person if he is exposed to such conditions over a prolonged period of time. The blood vessels get constricted as a response to stress and this constriction causes the blood pressure to rise. One way to combat mental stress is to meditate, take a holiday or to simply relax. Think of what the poet Thomas Gray said “The paths … Continue reading How stress effects your blood pressure →
The irony is that ‘late-onset diabetes’ or type 2 diabetes is occurring to children at 13 who are simply eating too much junk food. This can shorten life span but the most important thing that you must know is that it is totally preventable. The best time to act is now. It is interesting to know that childhood obesity often precedes the hyperinsulinemic state. An association of obesity with insulin resistance, hypertension, and abnormal lipid profile is seen nowadays among the younger generation as well. Several researches have emphasized on the fact that a substantial amount of weight loss leads to an improved insulin sensitivity and reduced insulin resistance. Prevention of childhood obesity should be the main focus. More attention should be paid to increasing physical activity and decreasing calorie consumption. Once obesity is established in a child or adolescent, vigorous clinical efforts should be directed at treating it. Bringing about a change in behavior and lifestyle could be a long-term solution but one cannot neglect the pharmacological approaches that are available today. Obesity is one of the biggest causes of various lifestyle or excess weight-related health issues such as diabetes and many more that include cholesterol, high BP, and … Continue reading Childhood obesity →
