      " ABOUT CELLPHONE USAGE "

      Useful information -> Mail From Apollo Medical Team.....

      " When you try to call someone through mobile phone, don't put your  mobile closer to your ears until the recipient answers.

     Because directly after dialing, the mobile phone would use it's
      maximum signaling  power, which is:

          2watts = 33dbi

    Please Be Careful - Message as received (Save your brain)

    Please use left ear while using cell (mobile), because if you use the right one it will affect brain directly.

    This is a true fact from Apollo medical team.

    VISION, TONE THE EYES"~~~
                                                                         
         
     If you have to stare at the computer screen for hours daily at
     office,you must have realised how tiring it can be for your entire body,
     not  just for the eyes.                                                 
         
       Benefits :-                                                          
         
      A lot of eye problems can be avoided by practicing these simple eye
      exercises. They tone the eye muscles, keep them elastic, improve the
      eyesight and reduce tension in the eye muscles. The following
      exercises  also help to strengthen eye muscles and counter balance the      effects of  eye strain. The focus and vision will get better and clearer as the
         
       ophthalmic or the eye nerves receive a richer supply of blood. They
     also soothe and lubricate tired eyes.                                   
         
      Methods :                                                         
         



     While doing eye exercises, keep your eyes open and don't move your
     head.
       Relax and keep the mind free of tension. Sit with the spine erect.
     Hands
       on the knees. The whole body must be motionless; nothing must move 
       except the eyes.                                                   
         
      Exercise 1 :-                                                       
         

                                                                         
         
     Raise your eyes and find a small point that you can see clearly without 
     straining, without frowning, without becoming tense and, of course,
     without moving your head.                                         
         
     While doing this exercise look at this point each time you raise your   
     eyes. Next, lower your eyes to find a small point on the floor,
     which you can see clearly while glancing down. Look at it each time you
     lower  your eyes. Breathe normally.                                       
         
                                                                         
       Exercise 2 :-    
                                                                         
         
      While doing the changing-vision exercise, you alternately shift your
      vision from close to distant points several times. Take a pencil or use 
       your finger, and hold it under the tip of your nose. Then start moving   
       it away, without raising it, until you have fixed it at the closest
      possible distance where you can see it clearly without any blur.
     Then raise your eyes a little, look straight into the distance and there
     find a small point, which you can see very clearly. Now look at the
     closer point, the pencil or your fingertip then shift to the point at the 
     distance. Repeat several times, blink, close your eyes and squeeze
     them  tight.

    Jai Sai Ram...

    "TIPS TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS".
                                                                         
         
    While Androgenetic Alopecia is the number one reason why individuals experience hair loss, it is not the only one.                     
         
    Medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, ringworm and fungal infections can cause hair loss.                                   
         
    Certain medications such as blood thinners, gout medication, birth control pills and too much vitamin A can cause sudden or abnormal hair loss as can following a crash diet, sudden hormonal changes, chemotherapy and radiation. If you are taking prescription
    medications,talk to your doctor and find out if your medication is contributing to   
    your hair loss.                                                   
         
    At any given time 10% of our hair is in what is called a "resting  phase" and after 2-3 months resting, hair falls out and new hair grows in its place. Some people, however, experience more hair loss than is normal.                                                           
         
    Some Excellent Resources On How To Prevent Further Hair Loss:       
         
    Avoid mega-doses of vitamin A. Too much vitamin A can cause your hair to fall out.                                               
         
    Exercise, do yoga, meditate or find some other practice that will help to reduce your anxiety and stress levels. If you wear pigtails, cornrows, use a curling iron, hair dryer or hot rollers, try changing your hair style to one that puts less pressure and
    stress on your hair and scalp.                                         
         
    If hot oil treatments or chemicals such as those used in permanents are causing inflammation to the scalp, discontinue their use, or reduce the number of times you are using them.                 
         
    Use gentle shampoos and conditioners to avoid any unnecessary
    damage  to your hair.                                                   
         
    In men, herbs such as saw palmetto and licorice root help block
    the formation of DHT. The same holds true for supplementation with zinc. 
    As an added benefit, studies show that these supplements can also help prevent prostate enlargement.                             
         
    Massage your scalp with rosemary oil in an olive oil base. Both rosemary oil and massaging the scalp can stimulate the circulation in the scalp and promote hair growth. Again, if you are experiencing  hair loss, check with your doctor to ensure that a more serious disorder isn't the cause.

    A brief on "8 FOODS FOR YOUR SKIN"
                                                                         
         
    When it comes to glowing flawless skin, you may think only creams and lotions can do the trick. We showcase some foods that literally feed your skin from within, making it healthier and more beautiful :-   
         
                                                                         
    Oranges                                                              
         
    What they do: They are loaded with Vitamin C, which protects your skin from damage from environmental factors like ultraviolet rays.

    Vitamin C keeps your gums healthy and helps your skin to make collagen, which is necessary to keep it tight and wrinkle free.                       
         
    How to consume: You need 200 mg of Vitamin C per day. There's enough in  one orange for your entire day's needs. It's better to consume the whole fruit than just have the juice.                             
         
    Smoking is a no-no as it decreases the absorption of Vitamin C into the system.                                                           
         
    Conditions it helps:                                                 
         
    ~ Bleeding, tender gums.                                           
         
    ~ Healing wounds.                                                 
         
    ~ Prevents skin from looking dull due exposure to the sun.         
         
                                                                         
         
    Papayas                                                             

    What they do: This delicious, low-calorie fruit is not just a dieter's delight; it comes packed with carotenoids that release Vitamin A. 
         
    Vitamin A has an antioxidant effect; it protects your skin from  damage and keeps it young. It is also known to decrease the risk of cancer.
         
    How to consume: About 200 gm (a big bowlful) is adequate. The part near the seeds is the richest in nutrients, so it should not be discarded.   
    Instead, just lightly flake off the seeds with a fork.             
         
    Conditions it helps:Dry skin and dry mucosa (the lining of your mouth and eyes).       
         
    Whole Grains                                                         
         
    What they do: These are full of vitamins of the B group; these vitamins are essential for normal skin functioning, growth of new cells to replace dead ones and to maintain the skin's strength against infections and stress. Niacin in whole grains also helps skin cells to absorb nutrients from the blood and break them to release energy. 
         
    How to consume: Select breads, biscuits and pastas that mention 'whole grain' instead of just wheat flour in the ingredients.             
         
    Try to eat unpolished rice (brown rice). You could also add wheat bran (husk of wheat) to your chappatti dough.                           
         
    Conditions it helps:                                               
         
    ~ Peeling, cracked skin                                           
         
    ~ Rough hands and feet.                                           
         
    ~ Mouth ulcers, sore tongue, rawness at the angles of your mouth. 
         
    ~ A disease called pellagra, where skin becomes dark, flaky and burnt.   
                                                                         
         
    Sunflower Seeds                                                     
         
    What they do: These light, crisp, nutritious morsels are filled with the goodness of essential fatty acids. They help your skin secrete  natural oils that lubricate it and prevent water loss, keeping your skin soft. They improve hair texture and decrease blackheads.     
         
    How to consume: A few teaspoons once or twice a week is enough.   
         
    Alternately, use sunflower oil for cooking.                       
         
    Conditions it helps:                                                 

    ~ Diseases like psoriasis, where you get pink, scaly patches on your skin and cracked soles.                                           
         
    ~ Diseases like atopic dermatitis, where skin is excessively dry and sensitive and keeps breaking into rashes.                         
         
    ~ Some forms of acne.                                             
         
                                                               
    Green Tea                                                             
         
    What it does: Green tea is loaded with flavinoids and antioxidants.

    Drinking it is the best gift you could give your skin.             
         
    Sunlight, UV rays and free radical (chemicals) in the atmosphere can damage your skin cell's structure and leave it incapable of
    repairing itself, making you look older and wrinkled before your years. It may also cause skin cancer. Antioxidants in green tea battle these agents,helping your skin stay younger.                                   
         
    How to consume: Soak a tea bag or a teaspoon of tea leaves in a cup of hot water for at least three minutes to get the full extract. This is available at any pharmacy. Adding milk neutralises the antioxidants,so it is best to have it black.                                       
         
    Conditions it helps:                                                 
         
    ~ Wrinkled, aged looking skin and sunburns.                       
         
    ~ Rashes due to sun exposure.                                     
         
    ~ Pigmentation due to menopause or pregnancy.   
                     
         
    Pulses                                                                 
         
    What they do: Pulses are not just a rich source of protein that
    helps your skin cells grow, they also contain a nutrient called biotin,which helps decrease dandruff and is effective in controlling hair fall. 

    Regular intake keeps your nails stay strong as well.               
         
    How to consume: Pulses must be cooked well to break the outer protective coats and release the vitamins inside.                 
         
    Whole pulses are better than the de-husked variety. Whole moong or
    urad dal are the best.                                                 
         
    Body builders beware; eating raw eggs prevents absorption of nutrients like biotin, causing its deficiency.                               
         
                                                                         
         
    Conditions they help:                                             
         
    ~ Dull lifeless skin gets a glow with a high protein pulses-rich diet.
     
    ~ Stops hair loss, decreases dandruff.                             
         
    ~ Helps brittle, dry nails.                                       
         
                                                                         
    Aloe Vera                                                             
         
    What it does: This miracle plant's products have no end to their virtues. Drinking aloe juice is beneficial for patchy, irritated skin,preventing and treating acne and preventing pigmentation.         
         
    How to consume: About 30 ml daily is enough. Buy packaged juice
    only,which is available with chemists. Don't try to eat the plant jelly directly as you could take in harmful inedible substances from the
    leaf  surface.                                                           
         
                                                                         
         
    Conditions it helps:                                                
         
    Acne, pigmentation, skin rashes, heat rashes and allergic reactions.
         
                                                                         
    Nuts                                                                  
         
    What they do: These may be high in calories but they are also rich
    in zinc, which is needed for skin cells to grow, multiply and protect themselves from free radicals.
                                         
    It is also helpful in maintaining immunity (capability to fight infection) of the skin and helping in normal hair growth. They also contain essential fatty acids that prevent dryness of skin and hair.
         
    How to consume: A fistful of groundnuts, walnuts, almonds and cashew nuts once or twice a week will give you all health benefits, without shaking the foundations of your calorie count chart. Do remove the skins if you like, but have whole.                                 

    Avoid coffee and tea as they decrease absorption of these nutrients from nuts.                                                         
         
    Conditions they help:                                             
         
    ~ Children with sensitive skin or skin allergies.                 
         
    ~ Hair loss and rough, unruly hair.

    A brief on "IMPORTANCE OF HAVING BREAKFAST".

                                                                           
    Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice on not to skip breakfast!                                   
                                                                           
    Healthy Living                                                        
                                                                           
    For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You've heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast.                         
                                                                           
    Why?                                                                 
                                                                           
    Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks between 6:00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being between 8:00a.m. and 10:00a.m.                                               
                                                                           
    What mechanism within the body could account for this significant jump in sudden death in the early morning hours?                          
                                                                           
    We may have an Answer...                                               
                                                                           
    Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to cholesterol or laque build-up in the artery lining. It is in the morning hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these internal blood clots at the greatest frequency.               
                                                                           
    However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes.

    Studies performed at Memorial University in St. Johns, Newfoundland  found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in  modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk. So if you skip breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately in light of this research. Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as oatmeal or Bran Flakes, along with six ounces of grape juice or orange juice, and perhaps a piece of fruit. This simple plan will keep your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from forming, and perhaps head off a potential Heart Attack or stroke. So never ever skip breakfast.

    "HOME REMEDIES FOR DENTAL CARE"~~~


    All of us are aware of the significance of teeth in maintaining good health. Teeth are the vital ingredients to health and fitness. Thus,it is essential to take proper care of our teeth. Often we think that dental care is quite expensive but this is not always correct. With the help of some inexpensive home remedies, you can keep your teeth fit and fine.So let's take a look at a few beneficial home remedies for dental care-

    To keep your gums and teeth healthy, make a paste of mustard oil and common salt. Add 2 pinches of salt to one tablespoon of mustard oil.The quantity of oil should be more than that of salt. Mix the two things well and with the help of your finger brush your teeth and gums with the paste. Once you are done rinse your mouth with water. Do this activity daily once or twice and you will notice beautiful and healthy teeth for yourself.

    When you run out of toothpaste, cut a slice of lemon and rub it over your teeth. Lemon does the task of a toothpaste. But do not rely a lot on the lemon juice because too much of lemon acid can weaken the teeth.

    Make a paste of powdered bay leaves and dried orange peel. Rub it on teeth to whiten their color.

    Maintain a healthy diet. Eat a good amount of foods such as carrots,cucumber, spinach, broccoli, apples and strawberries in raw form.

    Millet and sesame seeds are a rich source of calcium and therefore provide strength to teeth.

    Sunflower seeds are also great for teeth. They contain vitamin A,fluoride, phosphorous and calcium and are effective in preventing the bleeding of gums. Similarly, foods like parsley, turnip, beet and radish contain the green pigment called chlorophyll which helps to keep teeth healthy.

    Chlorophyll can also be acquired from neem sticks which are the oldest Indian home remedy to keep teeth healthy.

    You can make a refreshing mouthwash with rose water or few drops of spirit or peppermint added to a glass of water.

    Always use a tooth brush with M shaped bristles because this cleans the teeth in a way better than ordinary toothbrushes with flat bristles.
    Avoid using toothbrushes with hard bristles as that damages the gums...

    "DIETING".

    What is dieting?

    What does it mean?



    Dieting, mainly it means trying to reduce excess of body weight. The only way to loose fat is by consuming fewer calories per day than your body needs. Insulin resistance is a major cause of excess weight/ obesity, so make sure you consult your physician before opting for any dieting plan.

    Dieting Tips : -

    1.Drink at least 2-5 liters of water everyday, depending upon the type of weather conditions. Tea, Coffee and alcohols are not to be taken as the substitutes for pure water as these products contains dehydrating agents; they rather get rid of water from the body reserves. Soda and juices also reduce the urge to drink water.

    2. Avoid junk food - Junk food means: food which has low nutritiona value and high fat, sugar and calories content e.g. salted snack  foods, candy, gum, most of the sweet desserts, fried chips, chocolate, cakes, soft drinks, hamburgers etc. These contain very little protein, vitamins and very high calories.

    3.Eat small meals at frequent intervals instead of one large meal and avoid late night meals/snacks. Eating smaller meals during the day means control on obesity. The truth is that when you eat more often,your metabolism speeds up as the body understands there is more food on the way and better metabolism means your body burns off calories instead of storing them.

    4.Avoid ready, processed food in which preservatives are used.

    5.Avoid fatty food and alcohols - Alcohols have to be metabolized by the liver, so the liver can't perform the same job of, metabolizing fat at the same time. Fats: Include minimum possible oils to get fewer calories, in to your diet. Make sure to burn fat, you consume to reduce your excess weight.

    6.Get your diet plan worked out by the dietician who will prepare the exact number of calories in-take for your dieting plan. Eat right kind of diet, introducing fruits and vegetables of all colours in your menu.

    7.Choose the right kind of exercises according to your routine and activities. Make sure your exercise routine more interesting by using exercise audios/videos.

    8.Food selection should be based on the lowest amount of sugar, sodium and carbohydrates.

    9.Never keep on eating from a jar, as like this you will not be able to have a check on yourself on the quantity intake.

    10.Soups are the best way of filling yourself but make sure you take freshly prepared soups to avoid intake of preservatives.

    11.When coming to eating desserts, take a small amount.

    12.Don't skip a meal as by doing so you tend to overeat during the next meal.

    13.Keep daily record of intake and how many calories you are using.

    14.Eat fruits and vegetables salad for snacks instead of salties and fried chips.

    15.Eat fresh fruits and vegetables (unless these are baked or tossed with butter) as most of these contain low fat and calories. Many of these contain important vitamins and fiber. Avoid avocados, coconut and olives as all of these contain fat naturally.

    "TIPS TO PREVENT COLD &  FLU INFECTION"~~~

      12 Important Tips to Prevent Cold and Flu Infection :

    Since there are no known cures for colds or the flu, prevention should be your goal. A proactive approach to warding off colds and flu is apt to make your whole life healthier. The most effective way to prevent flu, frankly, is to get a flu shot. It may not be natural, but it works better than anything else. But there are other strategies you can employ as well.

      #1 Wash Your Hands~~~

    Most cold and flu viruses are spread by direct contact. Someone who has the flu sneezes onto their hand, and then touches the telephone, the keyboard, a kitchen glass. The germs can live for hours -- in some cases weeks -- only to be picked up by the next person who touches the same object. So wash your hands often. If no sink is available, rub your hands together very hard for a minute or so. That also helps break up most of the cold germs.

     #2 Don't Cover Your Sneezes and Coughs With Your Hands~~~

    Because germs and viruses cling to your bare hands, muffling coughs and sneezes with your hands results in passing along your germs to others.
    When you feel a sneeze or cough coming, use a tissue, then throw it away immediately. If you don't have a tissue, turn your head away from people near you and cough into the air.

      #3 Don't Touch Your Face~~~

    Cold and flu viruses enter your body through the eyes, nose or mouth. Touching their faces is the major way people catch colds.

      #4 Drink Plenty of Fluids~~~

    Water flushes your system, washing out the poisons as it rehydrates you.
     A typical, healthy adult needs eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids each day.
    How can you tell if you're getting enough liquid? If the color of your urine runs close to clear, you're getting enough. If it's deep yellow, you need more fluids.


      #5 Take a Sauna~~~]

    Researchers aren't clear about the exact role saunas play in prevention, but one 1989 German study found that people who steamed twice a week got half as many colds as those who didn't. One theory: When you take a sauna you inhale air hotter than 80 degrees, a temperature too hot for cold and flu viruses to survive.

      #6 Get Fresh Air~~~

    A regular dose of fresh air is important, especially in cold weather when central heating dries you out and makes your body more vulnerable to cold and flu viruses. Also, during cold weather more people stay indoors, which means more germs are circulating in crowded, dry rooms.

      #7 Do Aerobic Exercise Regularly~~~

    Aerobic exercise speeds up the heart to pump larger quantities of blood, makes you breathe faster to help transfer oxygen from your lungs to your  blood, and makes you sweat once your body heats up. These exercises help increase the body's natural virus-killing cells.

      #8 Eat Foods Containing Phytochemicals~~~

    "Phyto" means plants, and the natural chemicals in plants give the vitamins in food a supercharged boost. So put away the vitamin pill, and eat dark green, red, and yellow vegetables and fruits.

     #9 Eat Yogurt~~~

    Some studies have shown that eating a daily cup of low-fat yogurt can reduce your susceptibility to colds by 25 percent. Researchers think the beneficial bacteria in yogurt may stimulate production of immune system substances that fight disease.

      #10 Don't Smoke~~~

    Statistics show that heavy smokers get more severe colds and more frequent ones.
    Even being around smoke profoundly zaps the immune system. Smokedries out your nasal passages and paralyzes cilia, the delicate hairs that line the mucous membranes in your nose and lungs that sweep cold and flu viruses out of the nasal passages. Experts contend that one cigarette can paralyze cilia for as long as 30 to 40 minutes.

      #11 Cut Alcohol Consumption~~

    Heavy alcohol use destroys the liver, the body's primary filtering system, which means that germs of all kinds won't leave your body as fast. The result is, heavier drinkers are more prone to initial  infections as well as secondary complications. Alcohol also dehydrates the body -- it actually takes more fluids from your system than it puts in.

      #12 Relax~~~

    If you can teach yourself to relax, you can activate your immune system on demand. There's evidence that when you put your relaxation skills into action, your interleukins -- leaders in the immune system response against cold and flu viruses -- increase in the bloodstream. Train yourself to picture an image you find pleasant or calming. Do this 30 minutes a day for several months. Keep in mind, relaxation is a learnable skill, but it is not doing nothing. People who try to relax, but are in fact bored, show no changes in blood chemicals...

    12 Ways to Stay on Top of Stress ~~~
    by Gabrielle Reece

    You know how you have those weeks (or maybe months or years) that just seem to be loaded with stress? I know it's all relative -- one person's stress is another's holiday. People with two children think having just one child is a piece of cake, and so on. I've had one of those weeks -- I've been on the road a lot and dealing with an injury, work hasn't been going my way, and my three-year-old has been possessed by an alien. And I'm not talking about a friendly alien that wants to know what this planet is all about -- no, I am talking about someone who wants to launch a full-scale assault, but only in public places. To be honest, this stress has even made it more challenging to relate to my husband in a free-and-easy "girlie" way. I've had more tones of "wife" in my voice during this past week than I've had in my entire 11-year relationship.

    It takes a million years for one gene to change in our bodies. One million years! I'm bringing this up because, physiologically, we're the same humans we were 300 years ago. But look at how things have changed in that short time. Some things make life easier now: washers and dryers, transportation, abundance of food, electricity, etc. But some things make life today more insane: cell phones, traffic, increased population, fake food, TV, busy schedules. I heard a statistic from a doctor-friend that we make more decisions in one day than people used to make in a year. No wonder we're stressed out and reaching for doughnuts or alcohol to cope.

    All this craziness and high-speed living isn't going away. Since we can't change our genes, we have to create a map to navigate this crazy life. What can you do to try and stay on top of the stress so it doesn't affect your health, happiness, or waistline?

    1. Exercise. Amen for endorphins. Believe me, they've helped me many days with my perspective. If you have to work out, then go take a brisk walk and get that blood flowing. It isn't about working out to lose weight -- it's about being healthy and staying sane.

    2. Eat the real stuff. Crappy food (fast, processed, and loaded with sugar) doesn't help your chemical brain and body handle stress. Living food, real food, helps support your mind and body while it's trying to deal with the million things coming its way. Every time I reach for the chocolate, I'm looking to feel something from it. Don't get me wrong -- if it's just a little here and there because I enjoy the taste of it, great. But if I'm using it the minute I feel overwhelmed, then that's when that food is no longer OK to eat. It doesn't make the problem go away, and then I just feel bad about eating the food to pacify myself. Grab green food instead. Put things in your mouth that are going to support your immune function and keep you levelheaded.

    3. Notice. Try not to let the stress overtake you. Recognize the situations that cause the stress and notice them coming your way. You have a better shot at fending off the full effects of the stress when you can anticipate it.

    4. Get it off your chest. Talk to a friend or partner about the stress. Sometimes just getting it off your chest can help unload some of the burden.

    5. Keep your sense of humor. If you do have the chance to talk about it, try to see the irony and humor in the wacky bits. I think someone is dead in the water once they lose their sense of humor.

    6. Stay grateful. My daughter has large lungs and verbal skills she likes to display. Just when I start to wishfully think about her being quiet, I remind myself to be grateful that she can talk to me at all. In almost all of our problems are boatloads of blessings. "Oh, I don't feel like going to the gym." Well, Amen that you have the means and the health to even be able to wrestle with the idea of going to work out. Make a habit of saying thank you. You will notice the sunny spots a lot more often, and not just the gray skies and storms.

    7. Ask, "What's the hurry?" Have some fun. We're always so busy going somewhere, we miss just enjoying the moment. If an opportunity comes your way to do something fun, take it.

    8. Take a deep breath. When you feel the stress getting to you, take a moment. Get away, even if it's just for an hour, to be with yourself and your thoughts. Some people like to take a walk, meditate, lock themselves away in a beautiful bath, or go to church. Find the peace and the silence.

    9. Keep it simple. Simplify where you can. Does Junior really need to be in 78 activities at the age of 5? Do you have to go to every little party or gathering you're invited to?

    10. Turn of the TV. A lot of it is bad news anyway, and it robs us of hours that we could use to be getting other things done. Since everyone complains that they have no time, get some by unplugging from the tube.

    11. Sleep. If you're rested, you have a better shot at handling things. Not to mention, you may not stress out as easily if you have a chance to recover at night.

    12. Drink water. I have said it before: Americans consume 21 percent of their calories through liquid consumption. Hydrate with water. Help you entire system function better just by drinking enough water. Oh, and by the way, if you don't think that weight loss and proper hydration have a relationship, think again. Shift the paradigm on its side -- don't think about exercise and nutritional eating just as something you have to suffer through to get into those jeans. Instead, think of them as armor that will protect you in this crazy world, with all of the bazillion details you deal with every day.

    A brief on "VITAMIN - B6"~~~

    Why Is Vitamin B6 So Important?

    Vitamin B6 is the hardest working nutrient in the human body, but it is the most common vitamin deficiency in the human diet. It is estimated that one third of all adults have Vitamin B6 deficiency, with more women than men suffering from the deficiency.

    How Does Vitamin B6 Work?

    Pyridoxine - Vitamin B6 - is an essential nutrient required for life. It functions primarily as a "coenzyme," which is to act as a catalyst for other enzymes that need proper assistance to complete their job.
    Neurotransmitters, proteins and red blood cells all require Vitamin B6 in order to be formed; and it is also required for the metabolism of foods into energy. Research is showing the Vitamin B6 may play a crucial role in disease prevention and treatment.

    Along with Folic Acid and Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6 has been shown to help the body reduce homocysteine, an amino acid-like compound that is being studied for its relationship to an increase in heart disease.

    Vitamin B6 also plays many other important roles in the body . . .

    Supplementation with Vitamin B6 has been found to decrease PMS symptoms and can provide relief for pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness. Other studies show that this nutrient may be helpful in treating epilepsy and depression because it helps the body produce neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, which may be lacking in these patients.

    Vitamin B6 also plays a role in helping maintain the health of nerves, which is very valuable to those with diabetes, because they are at an increased risk of developing diabetes-induced nerve disease. In extreme cases, it may lead to amputation of the lower extremities.

    Maintaining nerve health is also valuable to those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, inflammation of the nerves in the wrist.

    Also, Vitamin B6 has also been shown to alleviate asthma symptoms and reduce the frequency and intensity of asthma attacks....

    A brief on "VITAMIN - E"~~~

    What vitamin E can do for you (and what it can't?)

    Vitamin E is an absolutely essential nutrient for your body, but most likely it can't do half the things you heard it can. What does vitamin E do?

    For starters, vitamin E is an antioxidant. It controls dangerous free radicals and helps prevent blood clots and blockages in the coronary arteries. Research has discovered its ability to reduce the risk of chronic diseases, including heart attacks and some types of cancer.

    It is also believed that vitamin E helps slow the aging process & assist nerve conduction. But most importantly, it act to enhance & protect vitamin C and vitamin A. There is also promising research that indicates that vitamin E might help prevent or slow the onset of Cataracts.

    Here are some of the diseases and conditions that vitamin E has been credited with curing or preventing~~~

    Parkinson's disease
    Infertility (in both men and women)
    Alzheimer's disease
    Hepatitis
    Eye tissue inflammation
    Fibromyalgia
    Hair loss
    PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
    Heavy menstruation
    Healing wounds
    Diabetes
    Arteriosclerosis
    Menopause
    Osteoarthritis
    Restless leg syndrome


    Time will probably prove that vitamin E is helpful in some of these and other common health conditions, but probably not in many or even most of them.As with many vitamins, there is a heated debate over how much vitamin E your body needs. The Researchers recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 8-10 milligrams per day, but most people in the nutrition field believe that to enjoy the long-term benefits, your need 10 - 20 times that quantity, which is well short of the maximum recommended 1,000 milligrams.

    Vitamin E is found in many foods in small quantities. The good news is that virtually everyone gets a sufficient amount of vitamin E to avoid a deficiency, with a few exceptions noted below. The bad news is that most people do not get the RDA, so vitamin E is definitely a vitamin that should be supplemented. Be careful about which supplements you choose though, since the synthetic version of vitamin E isn't nearly as effective as its natural form. Look for nutritional supplements containing natural vitamin E, preferably in the liquid form. People on  low fat diets need supplements the most because oils and fats are the largest sources of vitamin E in our foods. Nuts and green, leafy vegetables are also excellent sources, as are liver, egg yolks, and whole
    grains. While vitamin E will probably never be a cure for a broken heart or live up to half of the claims people make about it, it is a very important vitamin for maintaining overall good health and it is needed in quantities above what most people get via the foods they eat.

    A brief on "TIPS FOR GOOD HEALTH" ~~~   

    For Headache & Tiredness
    Sit straight & stretch both arms & place the hands on the knees with palm facing upwards. Bend the index finger so that it folds under your thumb. The remaining 3 fingers should remain straight. Let about 1/2 cm. of your tongue (i.e., tip of the tongue) be out of the mouth. Relax your mind. Sit in this position for 1-2 minutes.
    One should do this procedure 2-3 times in a day.
     
    For Controlling Anger 
    1) One should chew food properly. One must devote Atleast 20 minutes in chewing food.

    2) Whenever one feels angry, one should fold hands to make a firm fist for a few minutes. This would make 90% of anger disappear.
     
    For Curing & Preventing Kidney Problems 
    There is a vegetable grown in India called :-

    (Punarnava) in Sanskrit, ( Saatori) in Gujrati, (Saattaa ) in Punjabi  &  ( Lunrak) in Sindhi.

    This vegetable looks very similar to spinach.

    * When suffering from kidney problems, one should take 50 gms. juice of this vegetable once everyday.

    * In order to make kidney stronger than before, one should cook & eat this vegetable once in 10-15 days.

    Note: The first P.M. of India Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru had presented this plant to Queen Elizabeth of Britain
    because of its great medicinal value
     
    Harmful Effects of Cheese & Mava or Khoya
    Any kind of cheese (or paneer ) & condensed milk (mava or khoya) is very harmful for health.
    These milk products are very difficult to digest & the body is not able to get rid of them & therefore they act as poison for the body. These products lead to several health disorders like heart problems etc.
     
    Vaayu (Gas) Problems
    Taking 4-5 pieces of cashew after meals is very helpful in overcoming Vaayu problems.
     Please note that eating more than 7 cashew pieces in 24 hours is harmful for health.
    Potatoes are very harmful for people having Vaayu problems

    Mandaagni (Not feeling hungry & weak digestion power)
    Take a few sliced ginger pieces dipped in lemon juice & sprinkled with salt 10-15 minutes before meals.

    "WEIGHT LOSS DIET" ~~~


    The following diet and health program was developed for the employees and the dependents of General Motors Inc.,USA. The program was developed in conjuration with the grant from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. It was field tested in the Johns Hopkins Research Center and was approved for distributed by the Board of Directors of General Motors Corporation at a general meeting on August 15, 1995.
    General Motors Corporation wholly endorsed this program and is making it available to all employees and families. This program will be available at all General Motors food service facilities. It is the Management's intention to implement a welfare and fitness program for everyone.

    This program is designed for a target weight loss of 5-6 Kg. per week. It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its systematic cleaning effects. The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the foods eaten burn more calories than they give to the body in caloric value. This plan can be used as often as you like to without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to feel lighter by Atleast 10 pounds. You will have an abundance of energy and an improved disposition.

    During the seven days you must drink 10 glasses of water each day :-

    DAY ONE : All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all fruits you want. It is suggested you consume lots of melons the first day, especially watermelon and cantaloupe.
    DAY TWO : All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat all raw and cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount of type. Avoid oil and coconut while cooking vegetables. Have large boiled potato for breakfast.
    DAY THREE : Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet and no potatoes today.
    DAY FOUR : Banana and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have 1 bowl of vegetable soup.
    DAY FIVE : Today is feast day. You will eat 1 cup of rice. You also have to eat about six whole tomatoes and drink 12 glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.
    DAY SIX : Today is another all vegetables day. You must eat 1 cup of rice today and eat all the vegetable you want cooked and uncooked to your hearts content.
    DAY SEVEN : Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup rice, fruit juice and the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be five Kgs lighter than 1 week ago.
    If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. Repeat the program as often as you like, however, it is suggested that you rest for three days before every repetition.

    We followed the program as described here, but made our own adjustments like eating guacamole as one of the vegetables. Probably not a good choice, but it tasted so good. On day four, we made a vegetable soup with onion, green pepper, tomatoes, carrots, and cabbage. Something similar to Manchao soup that you get in "Indian Chinese" restaurants. Also for day five, we made tomato soup instead of eating raw tomatoes.

    "AMINO ACIDS" ~~~ 

    How amino acids function:

    Amino acids are popularly referred to as "building blocks". Amino acids are chemical units that make-up proteins. They are composed of 16 percent nitrogen, which creates the distinguishing difference between two other basic nutrients; sugars and fatty acids. Because proteins provide the structure for all living organisms and amino acids are an essential component of protein, a person can readily understand the importance of amino acids to life in general and especially to a healthy organism. In contrast to water proteins makes up the second greatest portion of the persons body weight. This is an indicator of just how important proteins and amino acids are to the body. Proteins are substances, which makeup muscles, tendons, ligaments, organs, glands, nails, hair, vital body fluids, and bones. As you can see, proteins are really an essential component of all aspects of the body. Enzymes and hormones are actually proteins and as we know enzymes and hormones regulate all bodily processes.

    Proteins form the structural basis of chromosomes, through which our genetic information is passed from parent to offspring. Embedded in the cells DNA is the actual genetic code that represents instructions on how each cell should make it's protein.

    Proteins are actually a chain of amino acids linked together. Each protein is composed of specific groups of amino acids and in a specific arrangement. In this way, each protein in the body is specifically designed to fit a specific need and as a result proteins and not interchangeable. Each protein has its own unique makeup and identity.

    Indeed, in-take of nutritional supplements such as vitamins and minerals must be accompanied by amino acids in order to be a simulated and absorbed by the body. Even though vitamins and minerals may be absorbed by the body they lose their effectiveness if an absence of amino acids is present.

    The actual process whereby amino acids create proteins is: we take-in foods with dietary protein which is broken down into its amino acid forms which is than used by the body to build specific proteins as needed. From this vantage point one can observe the importance of amino acids as in vital nutrient.

    Even in the brain, amino acids are able to pass through the blood brain barrier. In the brain, amino acids act as neurotransmitters, which facilitate the transmission of chemicals from one cell to another, enhancing communication between cells.

    Approximately 28 commonly known amino acids combine to create hundreds of types of proteins found in all living things. Certain amino acids, which are not produced by organs and glands of the body, are called essential amino acids. These amino acids must be obtained through ingesting of food material into the body. The essential amino acids include histidine, isoleune, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. The remaining amino acids are referred to as nonessential. This does not mean they are not essential, it merely means, that they do not need to be obtained through diet, because the body can produce them itself.

    Because the process of creating proteins is true breaking proteins into amino acids and we assembly into other proteins is ongoing, it becomes very important for the body not to run sure of material enough almost proteins to break down for assembly. From a manufacturing point of view it would be like running out of raw material use in preparation of products to be sold. A factory commits the ultimate sin if it allows itself to run out of raw material and/or inventory needed to produce its product. In the same fashion for individuals to allow the body to run out of the necessary proteins needed to be broken down in the assembled into new and diverse proteins can create severe adverse conditions. Eating a well balanced diet is essential in feeding how human machine with the necessary proteins in order for it to continue to rebuild itself daily.
    Taking supplements as sources for amino acids:

    Although it is not common to take supplements containing amino acids formulas, they are available. They are usually combined with other multivitamin formulas. Most amino acid supplements are derivatives of animal protein, yeast protein, or vegetable protein. When choosing amino acids supplements, it is important to find supplements of amino acids, in products containing the L.-forms of amino acids, which are considered to be more compatible with human biochemistry. Generally speaking, taking amino acids as supplements should not be taken for long periods of time. Typically, it's a good idea to alternate individual amino acids that fit your needs and back them up with amino acids complex in supplemental form, taking the supplements for two months and then skipping two months. Many researchers warn against taking large doses of amino acids over extended periods of time and stress moderation is the key. They point out, some amino acids have potential toxic effects when taken in large doses. Do not give supplemental amino acids to a child or take doses of any amino acids in excess of the recommended dosage on the label without specific directions from your physician.
