Is Detoxification necessary

 Is Detoxification necessary


 Post festival or holiday season this is very common, right

"I need to rid my body of toxins, time to detox."

"I'm starting a detox diet this week."

"Time for my annual detox juice fast!"



Detox can be expensive, at times unnecessary and possibly damaging.They're popular because they offer an apparent 'quick fix' solution to poor lifestyle and diet habits. "You've done the bad thing, now here's the detox diet to absolve you of your sins so you can start a clean slate."

"If through a detox diet you start eating healthy that's a wonderful thing,". But if you're serious about improving your health, you need to make changes that last beyond the few weeks or months of your detox program.

Our bodies are smart. They have built in mechanisms to detox 'toxins'. Detox organs include: liver, kidneys, skin and lungs. Our bodies' digestive, lymphatic and circulatory systems all play a major role in the process of detox.


We encounter toxic substances all the time, but our body does a perfectly good job of removing them. 

Fruit and vegetables, for example, contain natural insecticides that could be harmful to our bodies, but our kidneys, liver and gut effectively neutralise such substances within hours of eating them, converting them into products that can be passed out of our bodies. Our lungs, skin and immune system are also primed to remove or neutralise toxic substances.

How ever Assisted Detox i.e natural, highly effective and safe form of 'detox enhancement' is exercise! Exercise speeds up your circulatory and respiratory systems and promotes natural sweating-all natural detox methods used by the body (lungs, skin and blood/digestive system).

Another very important part of natural detox is your hydration level! Your body will detox itself much easier if you are fully hydrated. Water, fresh fruit juices, herbal tea, detox water and coconut water are fabulous beverages to stay hydrated.


"If you cut out alcohol, stop smoking ,eat more fruit and vegetables and less processed foods i.e junk food, exercise more you will feel better. But that's not because you're eliminating toxins. You're just putting less rubbish in your body."Please give a thought to this before unnecesarily following a detoxprogramme.

Undergo a detox only if advised and under proper guidance

Lets all celebrate a pollution free Green Diwali

 Lets all celebrate a pollution free Green Diwali



Now with the availability of so many colorful and attracting crackers in the market, it is tough to convince our children about the perils of the reckless usage of crackers,it is time for all to come together and pledge for pollution free Diwali. We might not only reduce the high environmental cost of buying and burning crackers, but also reduce the expense incurred in the treatment of asthma and other pollution related diseases.

Let’s redefine our Diwali celebration with lighting of Diyas, decoration with flowers and distributing sweets, gifts and, above all, happiness! After all, how long can we remain ignorant while we celebrate a festival of enlightenment!

How does a stroke occur

 How does a stroke occur
 
Stroke, also known as a "brain attack," is a leading cause of death and disability. Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke. If you see any sign of stroke, consider it an emergency.

How a stroke occurs
•Blood gives the brain the oxygen and nutrients it needs to survive
•Arteries are the blood vessels that provide this blood to the brain
•When an artery is blocked or bursts, an area of the brain may not get enough blood
•This can cause brain cells to die and lead to brain damage

Stroke Risk Factors

Stroke Risk Factors

 There are some stroke risk factors that you can change or treat. Others you cannot. As the old addage says, “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” Knowing your risk factors can be the key to prevention. Focus on the factors you can change and you lower your risk for a stroke.

Festive season special some healthy tips

 Festive season special some healthy tips
diwalisnacks1
Be careful of how much food you 'taste' while preparing festival goodies. Often, while cooking we tend to eat more than normal without realising.

Instead of loading your plate to the brim with sweets, just take a few, may be one or two, items and eat them slowly and gradually.

Even if you indulge, balance it out. For instance, if you eat dessert, then compensate by not having sweetened fruit juice or aerated drinks with your meals.
 
Enjoy the company of the people around you, as much as you enjoy your meal. While eating, take small bites and relish your food. Most importantly, eat without guilt!!!!!
