FORGET ABOUT CURE, LET’S THINK ABOUT PREVENTION.


Suddenly people have started taking all the necessary measures to boost their immunity, maintaining cleanliness taking preacautions and what not for so called CORONA VIRUS, Would’nt it have been better if these things were thought earlier and people being concerned for every disease and not just for particular one.

What is the reason that people are easily affected with the disease?

LOW IMMUNITY is it ?

So as the saying goes

“BETTER LATE THAN NEVER”

We better pledge for a healthy life and that too not just for a time being lets continue it all our lifes and ask others to follow the same.

Talking about immunity, it is something which can’t be felt, seen or measured as pulse or temperature but still a very important aspect in keeping our health checked. In scientific terms it is the body’s ability to protect itself from foreign invaders like viruses, disease and infection. It is a system that is constantly patrolling our body to detect and destroy infectious microbes.

“We are endowed with a great immune system that has been designed evolutionarily to keep us healthy,” says BRUCE POLSKY

[ MD, Medicine]

But the question is, why does our immunity drop and why do we get infections ?

Lifestyle aspects are very, very important, not eating healthy , being sedentary, not getting enough sleep and being under chronic stress can contribute to weak immune system. When your immune system is depleted, bacteria, viruses, or toxins can overwhelm the body. The result ? you get infectious diseases .

BUILDING IMMUNITY

There’s no single pill or supplement you can take to boost your immune system. Instead, adopting these healthy living habits can improve your immunity for a lifetime.

  • EXERCISE
  • DIET
  • AVOID STRESS
  • PROPER SLEEP
  • AVOID TOBACCO & ALCOHOL
  • MEDICINES (HOMEOPATHIC)

These are the few things we needs to be considered but right now lets just talk about the diet ( which helps us to stay away from infections) and some homeopathic medicine which helps in building the immunity.

FOODS TO INCLUDE IN OUR DIET :

  1. GARLIC – It has anti-viral and anti-biotic properties , consuming 2 clove daily on empty stomach will help us fight from infections and several diseases.
  2. TULSI – It has several beneficial properties which helps us in staying healthy. Adding it to the tea or chewing it direclty is generally advised.
  3. VITAMIN C & GINGER – Lemon and Amla are the ideal food for restoring immunity. It helps maintain the body’s internal ‘climate’ at a pH that supports healthy bacteria instead of the viruses and harmful bacteria which thrive in a more acidic environment. Consumption of lemon ginger tea twice daily will be a great idea
  4. CARROTS – Bugs bunny rarely came down with flu and there is the reason as they contain loads of beta-carotenes, which gets converted into vitamin A in the body,a powerful phytonutrient that boost the immune system’s production.
  5. BARLEY – This grain has all but disappeared from our kitchen needs to make a comeback. As it boost immunity, speeds healing and help antibiotics work better.
  6. SWEET POTATO – Is a brilliant antioxidant and also delivers lot of Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
  7. TURMERIC – It enhances immune function which helps fight viral infections. Could be consumed by adding to milk or as a spice to the food.

Along with this any physical activity in a day for 20 mins , adequate sleep for about 6-8 hours is very essential.

HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE

There are no specific homeopathic medicines, each medicine is thought to be a effective when it is properly prescribed. Still, we have seen homeopathic medicine as a useful one in the time of epidemics which could be applied in this time.

ALFA ALFA TONIC

This tonic contains avena sativa, ginseng and alfa alfa. Alfa Alfa and Avena Sativa provide essential minerals and vitamins whereas Ginseng builds immunity to fight against infections,removes mental and physical debility and helps in faster recovery.

OSCILLOCOCCINUIM

GOT STRESS ? HERE’S HOW TO DEAL WITH IT

EVERYDAY STRESS MANAGEMENT
NU_CAREHOMEOPATHY

Stress has become a modern day reality, becoming so common place that it has become a way of life. In small doses, stress can act as a motivational factor and help you perform better. But it is also important to note that stress is not a problematic situation ; it is also hazardous towards health.
When you are frequently operating in crisis mode, eventually, your mind and body have to pay the price. The increase in stress levels is directly proportional to increasing number of physical ailments, from migraines to belly fat. In several cases, even a heart attack. Here are few simple yet effective ways to deal with stress

1.MANAGE TIME EFFECTIVELY

When we are stressed we tend to harbour a lot of negativity around us, which does a lot of harm that we realise. So, instead of wasting time on performaning unimportant tasks, priortise your work in such a fashion that you finish your important job first. No matter how unpleasant a task appears to be, priortise your work in an order and finish them on time.

2.BREATHE

We read reports about the importance of meditation and breathing exercise almost everyday in the newspapers or online but finding time to do it becomes a Herculean task. If you want to lower your stress levels, it is a must that you find time to breathe. While you are brushing your teeth, or are stuck in traffic breathe in for five seconds.

3.INDULGE IN SMALL TREATS WHENEVER POSSIBLE

Indulging in small treats is a great way of relaxing your minds. Be in form of taking short breaks between work or snacking on some dark chocolates or reading a humourous article or even stretching, they all work wonders in beating stress.

4.Create a happy playlist of song for yourself

It is not unknown that music touches the strings in our soul. Pick up tunes that clear your mind and put you in a good mood. Create a playlist and put together whatever music that puts you in high spirits. You could play it while taking your morning shower, making your breakfast or commuting. This will immediately put you in a more blissful frame of mind, which sets off a chain reaction of positivity, in turn leading to one step closer to combating stress.

5.EVER HEARD OF SINGLE TASKING?

It is very important to know your limitations and not take on more than you can handle, which cause an enormous amount of stress. We then end up doing more than we should. While the idea of multitasking can make you feel like a hero, it is important to learn to dlegate effectively and be assertive about what and how much work you are capable of doing at a particular point of time.

6.EXERCISE

It is well known that exercising helps in enhancing energy and productivity. It also happens to be one of the quickest, most efficient ways to lower stress. Have you ever heard of a runner’s high? The ‘high’ comes from the endorphins that the brain release after we get our heart pumping. Walking, swimming ,biking, weight lifting , yoga or pilates are some of the other low impact exercises that are just as useful when it comes to improving your mood.

7.BE POSITIVE

This is easier said than done. But when you feel palpable tension throughout your body, calm those nerves by closing your eyes and having good, calm and positive thoughts. Picturing the most peaceful place you can imagine in your mind or remembering simple things in life that made you happy can help a great deal. This is not going to be easy but it is definitely not impossible to imbibe a positive attitude towards life. If there is something bothering you, you could try to see it from a different perspective by talking over your problems with somebody before it gets out of hand. Talking to a friend or a colleague or a family member can also help you out of a stressful situation.

8.SLEEP WELL

If you do not sleep well, your brain cannot function properly and even the smallest problems can appear to be major irritants which will only add to your stress. Studies have shown that humans require atleast 8 hours of sleep. This works in a cycle, as not getting sufficient sleep can lead to stress and then too much stress can further lead to sleeplessness.

9.WATCH WHAY YOU EAT

Adopting healthy eating habits can make a lot a difference. Eating foods that are rich in a Vitamin B like asparagus , almonds, spinach , broccoli, almond butter, lentils, red peppers, snappers, salmon, halibut, scallops and shrimps can be very helpful. Leafy greens, seaweeds, adaptegenic herbs, like maca or aswagandha, omega 3 fatty acids as well as zinc are important for the body to cope with stress.

10.FEEL FREE TO DISCONNECT FROM THE WORLD ONCE IN A WHILE

In modern times when communication and dissemination of information has become such a major part of human lives ,it becomes important to go on switched off mode once in a while to destress the mind. So, go ahead, feel free to turn off your cell phones, shut down that computer, unplug that TV and drive it nothing but the organic sounds of your city playing in the background. Welcome yourself to the quiet sounds and lucid thoughts of your mind .

Turmeric Health Benefits

Turmeric aka curcumin

What is it?

The bright yellow spice known for giving curry its distinct colour. This

ancient super-food, which has Indian origins, is gotten from a tuber (root plant) that’s closely related to ginger.

The health claims?

  1. Turmeric is a beauty super-weapon that can heal skin complaints like eczema as well as keep skin looking young
  2. The spice can heal gut inflammation and relieve diarrhoea, constipation, bloating and other symptoms of IBS and inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease
  3. Turmeric boosts the immune system and can shorten the length of a cold.

The scientific facts?

  • It’s not often a super-food actually deserves that title, but for turmeric, this appears to be the case. Studies have shownthat the yellow spice is a potent anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant agent that can indeed support the immune system.
  • Research, like this, has found that turmeric’s active component, curcumin, can help reduce the inflammation that underlies serious inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
  • Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory activity is also thought to benefit individuals with heart disease (as the atherosclerotic process that underlies the bulk of cardiovascular disease is inflammatory in nature). But before you get too excited, it’s important to note that supportive studies, like this, cannot be taken as conclusive evidence because they were done in mice.
  • Health claims that turmeric can improve skin health are not unfounded. This study, showed that a by-product of curcumin can actually speed up the healing of damaged skin. And as curcumin has strong anti-oxidant properties it’s scientifically accepted that the super-food can fight off the free-radicals that contribute to skin-ageing and even cancer.
  • But, before you run out and buy dozens of tubs of turmeric, bear in mind that all of the aforementioned health benefits relate to curcumin, which makes up just 3% of turmeric itself. This means that to really experience noticeable health benefits you’ll need to either eat a lot of curry or try a turmeric supplement that’s high in curcumin.

Nutritional facts – Turmeric versus ginger

They’re both warming spices renowned for boosting the immune system. They even look a lot like each other from the outside (the fresh varieties that is)! But how nutritionally similar are they? Here’s how 1 teaspoon (8g) of dried turmeric compares with the same amount of dried ginger.

  • Kcals: Turmeric 8 v ginger 6
  • Protein: Turmeric 0.2g v ginger 0.2g
  • Carbohydrate: Turmeric 1.4g v ginger 1.3g
  • Fibre: Turmeric 0.5g v ginger 0.2g
  • Fat: Turmeric 2g v ginger 0.1g
  • Vitamins and minerals: Turmeric has at least twice as much calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, B6, potassium and iron as ginger. It is also a much richer source of anti-oxidants than ginger.

Winner: Turmeric – no contest! Both are very similar in terms of macronutrients (fat, carbs and protein) but turmeric’s micronutrient profile is infinitely better than ginger’s – and the difference between the two is even greater when fresh ginger is compared with fresh turmeric.

Worth the hype? Yes. It’s cheap, widely available (in dried/ground form) and has no noted side effects. I admit the spice is unlikely to turn you into a new person, but with an impressive mineral, vitamin and anti-oxidant profile, as well as proven anti-inflammatory action, adding turmeric to any diet is likely to do good, even if it’s only at a cellular level (preventing disease that you are unaware of).
