Menopause cannot be stopped. After a certain age every woman will achieve it. So, it’s better to treat the symptoms related to menopause so that you can have a relaxed lifestyle. Fatigue Why fatigue happens: Sporadic sleep is one of the most common problems we see during perimenopause and menopause. Hormonal balance depends on sufficient rest and optimal nutrition. And your ability to rest and make good dietary choices directly affect your hormonal balance. Relief tip: Take two minutes a day to just breathe. Find a relaxing spot where you can be alone for a little while to reflect. Take time to notice your breathing, each breath, in and out. Weight Gain Why it happens: Changing hormones can alter how we store weight. When your body undergoes stress (such as in menopause) it stores up calories as part of its “survival mode.” Relief tip: Try to decrease your intake of refined carbohydrates. Try eating more high-quality protein, vegetables, healthy fats, and some fruit. Be mindful of carbohydrates. By including extra fiber and healthy protein in your diet, you can help your body retain steady blood sugar levels, and you’ll be less likely to store away those calories as fat.

Everyday, we are flooded with the information about cholesterol being the prime accused on the incidence of heart attack. But, why too much of it is a cause for concern and how one should keep it under check, are questions that constantly bother us. Get to know your cholesterol We all know that there are 2 types of cholesterol – good and bad. LDL is the bad, while HDL is considered to be the good cholesterol. Certain factors like sedentary lifestyle, being overweight, smoking, alcohol, diabetes, high blood pressure, under-active thyroid gland, wrong genetics, age, early menopause and over consumption of foods like red meat, sausages, cheese, pastry, cakes, most biscuits and cream cause rise in cholesterol levels.

The liver compensates for the excess cholesterol by reducing its own production and thus keeps blood levels in check. But when a person leads an unhealthy lifestyle and has no control over his diet, his body fails to handle dietary cholesterol with expertise and allows excess cholesterol to travel into the bloodstream. High cholesterol in the blood along with other factors initiates the process … Continue reading How to increase good cholesterol →

Here are some effective ways in which you can manage gout and keep it at bay: The water therapy The first and the most primary advice comes from Hippocrates- ‘Drink more water’. Yes, water plays a significant role as it dilutes the urine, which helps in expelling the uric acid crystals and preventing their formation in the blood. Watch your waistline People who are overweight should go on a gradual weight-loss programme. Rapid weight loss is likely to precipitate gout attacks since it may increase the blood uric acid levels in the body. Alcohol, the forbidden drink Alcohol acts as a double-edged sword for gouty patients. Not only does it stimulate uric acid production, but it also reduces its excretion. Eliminating alcohol can help prevent the recurrence of attacks. Know what to avoid Avoid purine-containing foods like meat gravies, meat stocks, organ meats like liver and kidney, leafy vegetables, and mushrooms. During an acute gout attack, peas, dried beans, dals, spinach, fish, chicken, most smoked meats, sugar, white flour, and yeast products like bread, cakes, and pastries should be avoided.
