  • Be your own dietician
    By Health Blog on September 15, 2009 | 4 Comments4 Comments  Comments

    There are very few things in life you have control over in, what goes in your mouth is certainly one of them. Keeping track of your diet is important if you want to remain healthy and have a good figure.

    The basis to any good diet plan is avoiding calories. The high protein diet, vegetarian diet, low calorie diet, cookie diet, liquid diet, etc all tell you clearly to avoid calories at all costs. Calories include all fatty foods, so what you need to do is avoid junk food, fizzy drinks, cheddar cheese any thing with a lot of oil and sugar.

    Calorie counts are given behind most products. When you go shopping you need to pay attention to what this calorie count reads. In order to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories per day than your body needs. To lose 1lb a week you need a negative calorie balance of 500 calories per day. To lose weight at 2lb a week you need to reduce your calorie intake by 1000 calories a day. So the first thing you need to do is to find out what your calorie intake is. There is a simple formula to calculate your average calorie needs called the Harris Benedicts formula:

    Diet

    The Harris-Benedict formula (BMR based on total body weight)

    The Harris Benedict equation is a calorie formula using the factors of height, weight, age, and sex to determine basal metabolic rate (BMR). This makes it more accurate than determining calorie needs based on total bodyweight alone. The only variable it does not take into consideration is lean body mass. Therefore, this equation will be very accurate in all but the extremely muscular (will underestimate caloric needs) and the extremely over fat (will overestimate caloric needs).

    Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 X wt in kg) + (5 X ht in cm) – (6.8 X age in years)

    Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 X wt in kg) + (1.8 X ht in cm) – (4.7 X age in years)

    Note: 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
    1 kilogram = 2.2 lbs.

    Example:
    You are female
    You are 30 yrs old
    You are 5′ 6 ” tall (167.6 cm)
    You weigh 120 lbs. (54.5 kilos)
    Your BMR = 655 + 523 + 302 – 141 = 1339 calories/day

    Exercise is necessary to maintain a good physique. It burns your carbohydrates then tones your muscles. An average adult requires a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise a day. Along with exercise rest is also very important your body needs eight hours of sleep a day. The body is like a machine it consumes energy which it gets from food for it to work properly it needs eight hours of sleep.

    Some helpful tips:

    • A simple technique to loose weight is to correct the way you breathe, it is scientifically proven that deep breathing exercises can decrease your weight loss by a staggering 30 pounds in two months. In the process you also oxygenate your brain properly, leaving you fresh and energized.
    • Avoid animal fat and butter. Theses are a huge source of carbs in our lives. Try to use substitutes like olive oil and fish oil.
    • Drink green tea. It controls your cholesterol levels, prevents cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

  • How to take medicines?
    By Health Blog on August 18, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    It is very important to know how to take the medicines, in how much quantity should be taken and other precautions that should be taken before taking medicine because if we take the medicine less than the disease will not cure or if we take more then it will affect other parts of the body also mostly lungs, liver, heart, stomach. So we should take at most care while taking medicines. Some medicines should be taken only once in a day and others may be very often like this there are several other constrains on taking medicines depending upon the severity, emergency, time, conditions etc. Whenever we suggest a medicine to others it is better to give all the instructions and also the information regarding when to take and how to repeat. It is always suggestible even if the number of medicines is less to write all the precautions, timings and frequency to use those medicines. When there are several kinds of medicines then we have to take more care regarding this.

    medicines

    Suppose if you are suggesting some medicines to others then you should write on a paper the information regarding the timings, name of the person, disease, frequency of usage you suggested and for what you suggested the medicine including the dosage. This helps as a patient report.

    Some medicines should be taken and also works best when taken with empty stomach while the others work effectively only when taken with full stomach. Because some medicines upset the stomach if there is some food inside and creates the sensation of vomiting or motions. So we should know how to use the medicines and other precautions that we should follow before taking them.

    I am suggesting some medicines those should be taken before 1 hr to the meals: penicillin, ampicillin, tetracycline, rifampicin.

    Take these medicines together with or after the meals: aspirin, iron tablets, vitamin tablets and erythromycin.

  • Diet for eliminating candida
    By Health Blog on August 17, 2009 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments

    Most of the people don’t know that there will be some yeast and micro flora in our stomach which releases some acids and substances to digest the food that we take. But like everything for the healthy body there should be a proper balance of this yeast. When this balance is maintained digestion process occurs in proper manner and keeps us healthy otherwise the situation of imbalance leads to a number of health problems like irritation, anxiety, acne, migraines etc. These are only some of the diseases that are due this imbalance.

    The major reason for this imbalance is due to the reduced number of yeast cells which is caused due to the use of antibiotics, birth control medicines, and other consumption of toxins along with the food that we eat. So this is one of the major health problems that we need to consider and take some preventive measures when we are suffering with this problem. 3lac helps to reduce these problems very easily by introducing the good micro flora in to our stomach and intestinal system to maintain the balance of these bacteria for good digestion. This should be done very carefully. If this bacteria was introduced more into our body, leads to other health problems like over growth of bacteria and yeast and causes several health problems.

  • Health education
    By Health Blog on August 15, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    One of the major reasons behind people getting diseases and dying is lack of proper awareness among them regarding their health and lack of basic health education. For example the health problem that is prevailing at this situation is swine flu which everybody might have heard about this but how many are following the basic preventive measures? The main reason behind this negligence is that they don’t know how it affects and how it takes away their lives. People should know the basic information about any difficult health problem and know how they have to face the problem.

    This is their responsibility to know about their surroundings and gain the health awareness. But the government of each country should strive to provide the basic health education for every citizen and it’s their responsibility to create awareness among people. Once the people are given the basic health education they all can easily get to know what to do if any difficult situation occurs. Even so many people don’t know that they have to contact doctor or go to hospital when they get any health problems as they don’t have any access to the hospitals. People should try to gain the knowledge about both physical and mental health and get the required information in the hospitals or any health centers and know what to do any health problem occurs and how to prevent it.
