Mahipal (name changed), a 40-year-old was having a mild irritation and burning in his stomach. At the hospital, doctors told him that he had suffered a major heart attack. Angiography revealed that three of his arteries had major blockage for which he had to undergo bypass surgery. His family members could not understand why Mahipal had suffered a heart attack at a young age. Although they were aware that he had diabetes but were clueless about the correlation between heart disease and diabetes.

As per doctors, diabetes is not just about high blood sugar levels. “People with diabetes tend to develop heart disease at a younger age than people without diabetes. In adults, with diabetes, the most common causes of death are heart disease and stroke. Adults with diabetes are nearly twice as likely to die from heart disease or stroke as people without diabetes,” Dr Amit Gupta, a senior interventional cardiologist at Shalby Hospital said. “

Around 25 percent people with diabetes have Diabetic Heart Disease (DHD). It may include diabetic cardiomyopathy, coronary heart disease (CHD) or heart failure. Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a disease that damages the structure and function of the heart. This disease can lead to heart failure and arrhythmias, even in people who have diabetes but don’t have CHD,” added Dr Gupta.

India is the diabetic capital of the world and diabetes is the fastest growing disease as 7.2 crore cases recorded in 2017 and the figure is expected to nearly double by 2025. As per doctors, people who have type-1 or type-2 diabetes can develop DHD. The risk increases with the higher blood sugar level. “Diabetes is a disease in which the body’s blood glucose (sugar) level is too high. Over time, high blood glucose from diabetes can damage blood vessels and the nerves that control heart and blood vessels,” said Dr Gupta.

Lifestyle changes and medicines can prevent the risk. Physical activity helps to control blood sugar level and reduce stress. Diabetics need to follow a healthy diet, rich in vegetables, whole grains, fruits and fat-free milk products. Consumption of simple carbohydrates and trans-fat foods should be avoided.

Recently, one person was admitted to a well-known nursing home at Pune, due to severe chest pain. He had an earlier attack in 2012 and was under treatment. The doctors now suggested Angiography.

Upon undergoing Angiography at multi-specialty Hospital Doctors diagnosed multiple blockages for which Angioplasty was ruled out and instead, suggested ‘Bypass Surgery’.

That evening, he was brought home as the doctor suggested his heart is very weak, bypass could be performed only after 10 – 15 days.

Meanwhile, after discussing the matter with relatives and close friends, fresh information came from a family friend.

A new treatment is known as-“Chelox therapy, Laser therapy & Chelation Therapy” has been introduced into the Indian medical theatre.

With this therapy, a patient who has to undergo by-pass need not do so.

Instead, the patient is given about 30 bottles of IV fluids in which certain medicament are injected. The medicine cleans the system and removes all blockages from the heart and the arteries. The number of bottles given may increase depending upon the age-factor and health of the patient.
Cost per bottle may be around Rs.1300/-.

Currently, only a few doctors in India specialize in this field

One of them is DR.Vikrant Laate. In Pune.

He has a list of patients who had to undergo by-pass from major hospitals; but, instead of after undergoing the new treatment, they are absolutely fine and are leading a normal life. Without or minimum medicine.

Dr. Patxi Ulibarri is the Medical Director of a Bilbao Hospital in Bizkaia Spain.

* This is the extract of an interview on local TV, where he was asked about food and sports issues …

Here it goes…

* Question: Cardiovascular exercises prolong life … Is it true?
* Answer: Your heart was made to beat a certain number of times and go … Do not waste those beats in exercises … Eventually, everything is spent. Accelerating your heart will not make you live longer: That’s like saying that you can prolong the life of your car by driving faster. Do you want to live longer? Take a nap. *

* Q: Should I stop eating red meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
* A: You need to understand the logistics of efficiency. What does the Lamb eat? Grass, fodder, and legumes. What are those things? Vegetables! Then a barbecue or a barbecue is nothing more than an effective mechanism to place vegetables in your system. Do you need grains? Eat chicken! *

* Q: Should I reduce my alcohol consumption?
* A: No way. Wine is made of fruit. Brandy is a distilled wine, which means that they take the water out of the fruit and thus one takes advantage of it better. Beer is also made from grains … Get drunk! *

* Q: What are the advantages of a regular exercise program?
* A: My philosophy is: If nothing hurts you, you’re fine and you do not have to do anything. *

* Q: Are fried foods harmful?
* A: YOU ARE NOT LISTENING TO ME !! Today the food is fried in vegetable oil. These foods are literally impregnated with “vegetable” oil … How can something vegetable be harmful to your health? *

* Q: Do push-ups help reduce fat?
* A: Absolutely NO! Exercising a muscle only causes it to increase in size. *

* Q: Does chocolate do badly?
* A: Are you crazy? Cocoa, another vegetable! It is a very good meal to be happy. *

AND REMEMBER*:
* Life should not be a trip to the grave, with the intention of getting there safe and sound with an attractive body and well preserved … Better to exceed: Beer in one hand, an appetizer in the other, much sex and a body totally spent, completely used and screaming: It was worth it !! WHAT TRIP!!!*

– If walking was healthy, the postman would be immortal.
– The whale swims all day, only eats fish, only takes water … and is fat !!
– The rabbit eats well, runs, jumps and lives only 15 years.
– The turtle does not run or do anything … * And lives 450 years! *

* If you can not find half of your orange, do not be discouraged … Look for half a lemon, add rum, ice, coke, and …
Be Happy

* Enjoy your Life !!! *

Be careful when you drink cold water

1. A doctor friend came to me to chat and said that the weather was very hot. Under the sun, it could reach 40 degrees C.

He said: At 40 degrees if you drink ice water in an instant, the micro blood vessels could explode. One of his friends just went into the house to wash his feet with cold water. Then his eyes could not see clearly, and he passed out. Only the ears could hear the sound. He was terrified!

2. The temperature in some places has reached 38 degrees C or higher, but the temperature of the body sense should be higher. The danger is not just with drinking ice cold water. The same danger may occur with even washing hands / washing your face / washing your feet. You must not subject any part of the hot body to temperature shock with cold water.

You need about 30 minutes to allow the body to cool down and adjusted to the indoor temperature. Drink natural temperature water / lukewarm water of around 34 to 36 degrees C.

3. There is a very strong man. The doctor had examined him in the hospital about three years ago.
He met the man again and was surprised to find that he had a stroke. He was in bad condition. The man told the doctor, ” Recently, on a hot day, upon returning home, in order to quickly cool off from the heat, I immediately took a cold shower. I felt that I could not move my jaws properly. I immediately called an ambulance to send me to the hospital. That saved my life.”

Remember, especially on a hot day, avoid fridge water or ice-cold water to cool off as it will cause rapid contraction of blood vessels.

Adults with young children at home should inform their helpers about this.

The weather is abnormal recently. It may be nice to have a cold drink to cool down, but it is very dangerous! Avoid gulping down the drink, drink it slowly.

Please share this article with your family and friends.

It may save a life!

Health minister Dr. Harshvardhan directs to give up biscuits

Read Time: 2 minutes

The union health minister Dr. Harvardhan himself being a senior medical doctor of repute seeems to be more concerned and careful about his health, health of his subordinate bureaucrats and departmental heads as according to him biscuits are harmful for the health than other desi stuff like bhuna chana and expensive dry fruits. Biscuits perhaps being a cheaper stuff does not suit the VIPs and bureaucrats of repute serving in top positions in ministry of health and family welfare who attend and participate in important routine meetings with the minister of health in his official chamber and in other meetings as well.

Sounds interesting that for such a change in the menu of snacks an official order is circulated by the deputy secretary to the government of India namely Zile Singh Vical, instructing the Canteen staff to do the needful forthwith mentioning the reference of the union health minister’s directives to this effect. WOW. In an official circular on dated 19th June, signed by Zile Singh Vical on 24th June, 2019 sent to Manager Departmental Canteen, Ministry of Health and family Welfare, Nirman Bhawan, and and protocol section as well including Principal Private Secretary to Secretary Health, all joint secretaries, DDG’s, DCAs, Director CGH n Chief Director ( Stats), all directors, deputy secretaries, under secretaries, section officers and notice board of the department at Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi it has been mentioned that hon’ble health and family welfare minister has desired that healthy snacks are only to be served in the official meetings and biscuits are to be avoided.

Henceforth therefore biscuits shall not be dispensed through the departmental canteens and healthy snacks only like Lahiya Chana, Khazoor, Bhuna Chana, ( fried grams) dry fruits Almonds, Akhrot etc will be served in the official meetings in the department. Further the order issued by the administration division for not using plastic water bottles shall also be imolemented in letter and spirit.

The subject of the corcular is : Serving of biscuits through the departmental canteen of department of health and family welfare to be dispensed with – instruction thereoff.

However it dosent mentions giving up the usage of plastic wayer bottles in the department more specifically than adding it in the last sentence of the circular as a secondary issue which should infact have been the primary point of the directives. What’s your take friends?

SCORCHING SUMMER AND SWEET & SUCCULENT FRUITS

Published

on


Spread the love
Read Time: 4 minutes

Summer comes in many ways. But the most appalling summary of the season is the scorching weather as if God has made up his mind to give no respite to the dwellers on the earth. Amidst such tough times, something which provides a soothing and satiating smile is the varied and succulent fruits. Fruit fanatic always feels gung ho in summer to see such scrumptious and scrummy fruits.

To begin our discussion of an obsession for fruits we must first visit the king of fruit i.e.; mango. India is the largest producer and exporter of mango across the globe.The juicy stone fruit comes in numerous varieties such as  Alphonos, Badami, Chaunsa, Dasheri, Kesar, Langra, Lengara, Hemsagar, Amrapali, Baganpali, Totapuri etc. Mango of India is famous in the world for its sweetness, richness, and uniqueness. It had a very interesting story of origin in India. The saple of the tree was brought from Afghanistan by the Mughal emperor the great Akbar and planted in a place called Lakhi Bagh in Uttar Pradesh. From then it has heightened its stature to recent time across the length and breadth of the world. It has achieved the status of the national fruit of India and at the same time the national tree of Bangladesh. It is also proclaimed unofficial as the national fruit of the Philippines. Summer without mango is colourless, odourless and sweet less.

To be candid no fruit can come closer to its taste, flavor, and fragrance, but in terms of presence, color and rough pericardium texture luscious lychee always capture the Fruit-hunter imagination and expectation.

The fruit has a very short life in comparison to the fleshy mango. There are few varieties come to mind in case of lychee but the most popular of them in India is Bengal lychee. The small rounded fruit with sweet white scented flesh and a large central stone and a thin reddish-pinkish morph augur well for the fruit lovers. The tropical fruit is very famous among children for its unique taste and flavor.

Moving on with our elaboration, another most attractive summer fruit is juicy watermelon. Without the succulent watermelon, the perching season is drained and enervated. Because of its price and popularity, it is a welcomed seasonal fruit in every section of society. The oval and round textured fruit has excellent refreshing quality and sweetness to surmount summer heat and provide a guilt-free, low maintenance dessert. The tropical fruit delicacy and refreshing attributes keep everyone hydrated throughout the perching and dreadful climate.

After discussing all the refreshing and relishing fruits we must move to another stunning summer specialty, the jack fruit. The studded fruit has an excellent economic value from its raw state to the ripen one. As the festivals in Odisha like the Savitri and Raja Sankranti are around the corner, it makes the center stage throughout the rural and urban market. Mostly circular its shape can be irregularly found between the Sahyadri and Borneo. Otherwise known as breadfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and the state fruit in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The plant is well versed with tropical lowlands and its fruit is the largest tree-borne fruit, reaching as much 55kg in weight,90 cm in length and 50cm in diameter. A mature tree can produce up to 100 to 200 fruits in a year.

Summer fruits number do not finish with the jackfruit as the endless number continue such as the Wax Apple, Juicy Plums, Papaya, Pear, Sapeta, Raspberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, etc. Irrespective of unbearable and exhausting heat and humidity the diversified fruit and its flavor and fragrance give immense reason to smile for fruitarianism.

Looking at anything which reminds of coffee can stimulate brain: Study

Published

Read Time: 3 minutes

The study, published in the journal ‘Consciousness and Cognition’ looked at an effect calling priming through which exposure to even subtle cues can influence people’s thoughts and behaviour.

“Coffee is one of the most popular beverages and a lot is known about its physical effects. Much less is known about its psychological meaning — in other words, how even seeing reminders of it can influence how we think,” said study author Sam Maglio.

“People often encounter coffee-related cues, or think about coffee, without actually ingesting it. We wanted to see if there was an association between coffee and arousal such that if we simply exposed people to coffee-related cues, their physiological arousal would increase, as it would if they had actually drank coffee,” added Maglio.

Arousal in psychology refers to how specific areas of the brain get activated into a state of being alert, awake and attentive. It can be triggered by a number of things, including our emotions, neurotransmitters in the brain, or the caffeinated beverages we consume.

In this case, the researchers wanted to explore how simply being exposed to things that remind us of coffee may have an effect on arousal.

Across four separate studies and using a mix of participants from Western and Eastern cultures, they compared coffee- and tea-related cues. They found that participants exposed to coffee-related cues perceived time as shorter and thought in more concrete, precise terms.

“People who experience physiological arousal – again, in this case as the result of priming and not drinking coffee itself – see the world in more specific, detailed terms,” said Maglio.

“This has a number of implications for how people process information and make judgements and decisions,” Maglio added.

However, the effect was not as strong among participants who grew up in Eastern cultures. Maglio speculates that the association between coffee and arousal is not as strong in less coffee-dominated cultures.

Past research has looked at the effect of other primed associations, noted Maglio. One study specifically found that merely looking at the McDonald’s logo may lessen our ability to slow down and savour pleasurable experiences in life.

He says the research may be of interest in better understanding a range of consumer-related behaviours, and for marketers in considering retail store locations.

Next steps for the research will look at associations people have for different foods and beverages, researchers said. Just thinking about energy drinks or red wine, for example, could have very different effects on arousal

Children whose mothers smokedduring their pregnancy are at increased risk of being obese later in life, say researchers.

The findings, published in the journal Experimental Physiology, showed that chemerin, a protein that is produced by fat cells and appears to play a role in energy storage, was more prevalent in the skin and isolated cells of infants whose mothers smoked during pregnancy.

Previous research had shown that chemerin is present in higher levels in the blood of obese people.

The new results suggest that smoking in pregnancy could lead to changes in the regulation of the genes that play an important role in fat cell development and, by extension, obesity.
