Studies suggest that cholesterol problems can be talked to/looked at with simple dietary changes. And (medium-hard exercises that last for a while) further improve the cholesterol lowering effects of a healthy diet. 

Here are some quick tips to lower cholesterol without drugs :

1 . Say no to trans fats

Food manufacturers use trans fats because they extend the shelf life of packaged (cakes, cookies, etc.). They raise LDL (bad cholesterol), lower HDL (good cholesterol), and increase risk of developing heart disease and stroke. They're found in fried foods, (cakes, cookies, etc.) (cakes, pie crusts, frozen pizza, and cookies). Follow this rule: choose fats and oils with 2 grams or less (chicken fat, butter, cream, lard, etc.) per tablespoon.

2 . Switch to olive oil

Substituting olive oil for ghee or butter may reduce LDL cholesterol by as much as 15%, which is just like the effect of a low dose of medicine The "good" fats in olive oil benefit your heart. Choose extra-virgin olive oil.

3 . Add lots of fiber to your diet

Research hints that increasing (able to be dissolved in something) fiber intake by 5 to 10 grams each day may result in a 5% drop in LDL cholesterol. Foods like oatmeal, apples, dried plums, and beans are high in (able to be dissolved in something) fiber, which keeps your body from soaking up cholesterol.

4 . Choose colorful fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with ingredients that lower cholesterol—including fiber, cholesterol-blocking molecules called sterols and stanols, and eye-appealing pigments. These include leafy greens, yellow squashes, carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, plums, blueberries.

5 . Add spices to your cooking

Spices like garlic, curcumin, ginger, black pepper, coriander, and cinnamon can improve cholesterol. Research shows that eating half to one halfway point garlic each day could lower cholesterol up to 9%.

6 . Lose those extra kilos

If you’re overweight, drop of just 4-5 Kg will reduce your LDL by up to 8%.  Having 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day (for women) and 1200-1600 calories/day (for men) will help in losing  weight safely.

7 . Exercise regularly
Exercising at least 2 1/2 hours a week (around 20 minutes per day) is enough to raise HDL (good cholesterol) and improve LDL and triglycerides. Start with a 20 minute quick and energetic walk daily!

8 . Have a handful of nuts
Nuts/very light browns and walnuts contain sterols, which, like fiber, keep the body from soaking up cholesterol. Go for unsalted ones and keep the amount in check.
9 . Quit smoking
Smoking can raise LDL and lower HDL, and quitting often improves those numbers. Breathing secondhand smoke every day can also raise levels of bad cholesterol.
10 . Stay happy
Studies suggest that when you are stressed, your cholesterol levels rise in the body. Start/work at hobby like gardening, join a book club or try deep thinking or yoga classes to keep your spirits high.

Our immunity is really a tricky entity. It is composed of various components like the good bacteria living in our stomach and the white blood cells that actually fight germs in our body.A weak immune system, doctors say can also be party genetic. However, all experts agree that the following simple steps can go a long way in strengthening one’s immunity:

1 . Get Adequate Sleep
Sleep is the most potent healer that the human body is capable of, by itself. While we sleep, our bodies produce a hormone melatonin, an antioxidant and also an anti-inflammatory chemical. This relaxes and heals the body from within.
2 . Exercise Everyday
Besides a whole host of benefits that we are aware of, regular exercise can effectively boost immunity. It reduces the risk of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. The body produces the ‘feel-good’ hormone endorphin while you exercise that acts as a natural healer.
3 . Eat Fresh
Include green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, carrots and fresh fruits in your diet. They are packed with antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals and possess anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Fruits like oranges, kiwis, berries are especially packed with vitamin C which boosts the immunity. Opt for salads, boiled or grilled vegetables and whole fruits to get the maximum benefits
4 . Spend More ‘Sun’ Time
This one is easy for us, Indians. Sunshine helps produce vitamin D in humans that is otherwise hard to get from other sources. A deficiency of vitamin D will weaken your immune system. Experts suggest getting 15-20 minutes of sun exposure in the early morning every day to get a daily dose of vitamin D.
5 . Quit Smoking
Well, smoking literally can cause cancer. Not kicking the butt poses serious threat to smokers and their loved ones. The inhaled smoke depletes the oxygen carrying capacity of blood and the gut bacteria are adversely affected reducing the immunity levels as a whole.
6 . Limit Alcohol 
Alcohol consumption is toxic for the immune system. It reduces the Magnesium and Vitamin B levels in our body leaving is vulnerable to infections. The liver is damaged by regular alcohol consumption and it also causes huge oxidative damage to your cells.
7 . Have Yogurt Daily
The probiotics contained in yogurt are very beneficial to the bacterial lining of the gut and intestine, key components of our immune system. It improves digestion and assimilation of nutrients and should be had daily for best results.
8 . Include Garlic In Your Diet
Garlic has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties that boost immunity. It also comes packed with anti-oxidants that reverse free radical damage caused to our cells. Having a raw clove of garlic in the morning is its best use.
9 . Stay Hydrated
Water helps maintain the balance of salts in our body that is integral to one’s well-being. It flushes out harmful toxins from the body and regulates processes like respiration, digestion and urination. Drink 3-4 liters each day to keep your immune system in proper condition.
10 . Learn To Cope With Stress
Stress weakens the immune system and makes you susceptible to various diseases and infections. Everyone should make a conscious effort to keep stress and anxiety at bay. Use meditation and yoga to combat these perils and stay happy.

From the steam that eases congestion, and the stuff we swim in, and the ice that reduces swelling, water is all around us. The ubiquitous attribute of water makes it a very important and rich resource, whose health benefits are often ignored or underrated. Water even makes up for two thirds of our bodies, which inevitably brings the question – what are the main benefits of drinking water and why should we keep ourselves hydrated?

Let’s see a list of benefits that come attached with drinking water and how these can be treated as health tips:

Aids in weight loss: Whether you are into power yoga, cardio or a simple gym nut, drinking plenty of water can help in weight loss. Various scientific studies have found out that people who drink water before any meal, lose weight faster than people who don’t. This is so because by this way, the upped intake of H2O makes us feel full, active and may also help boost metabolism

Helps fight fatigue: With increasingly complex choices where more and more people are living sedentary lifestyle, fatigue is considered as the package of the deal. Drinking plenty of water helps people remain hydrated all day long, which also helps fight fatigue as electrolytes (water with a pinch of salt and sugar) help maintain fluid balance in the body.

·         Rids of headaches: Gulping down tablets and pills for headaches has become commonplace. As many are unaware, if you go without water for longer duration, you can get headaches and as such the same can be cured by drinking enough of it, naturally, without having to pop pills.

·         Better mood: Drinking water can also make you feel refreshed and active all day long, even after a strenuous workout or hectic day at work. Thus, it enables a healthy state of mind

With such benefits and more, it can be considered as one of the best home health care where you can get rid of some of the basic issues (headaches, better digestive system, etc.) by yourself without going to any health clinic.

So, fill up that bottle and energize yourself!

Jogging is one of those rare physical activities that completely define healthy living. It is also one of the most popular workout regimes that helps keep one in shape or lose weight by focusing on target and core muscles. Also, it does not require athletic training or special skill set, which makes it an ideal workout plan for most of the people.
There are no exigent exercise tips that one needs to remember before starting this workout, as the only prerequisite to it is to own a good pair of running shoes! Furthermore, no home tips are also required as the exercise is as simple as it gets – whether you start off early in the morning or after your work hours in the evening.
Its benefits are aplenty and are summarized below:

·            Improved cardiovascular system

        Regular jogging can help improve cardiovascular endurance system of the body as it challenges           your lungs and heart. By providing active oxygen supply to the muscles that need it, blood pressure     can be brought down effectively.

·             Better endurance 

      As mentioned above, continuous physical activity helps improve the cardiovascular system, which  makes the body more effective in oxygen consumption. This allows your body to produce more  energy from the food you consume. In simple words, the amount of energy produced by you is  directly proportional to the degree of intensity of your workout and consequently allows you to run  for a longer duration, faster, helping your endurance level.

·            Less stress

      Endorphins are essentially pain blocking hormones that are produced in the brain during the times of  stress, and sent into the bloodstream. As an intense cardio exercise, jogging puts constant stress on  the body, which causes brain’s pituitary glands to release endorphins into the blood stream, which  consequently helps elevate mood and reduce stress. Also called ‘runner’s high’, the feel good effect  can be a strong motivational factor to stick to the regular jogging program.

To get the maximum benefit from your jogging, try to do at least three times a week. Having a strict discipline in terms of physical activity can help contribute towards health improvement, and bring positivity in everyday life. To all those who believe in home remedies, jogging could best be described as an efficient home based health care system.

Prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes has reached endemic proportions across the world, which occurs when pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or they are not utilized effectively by the body. International Diabetes Federation (IDF) stated that by 2011, approximately 366 million people around the world were affected by type 2 diabetes and the figure is expected to reach 552 million by 2030.

Closer to home, India has one of the largest population living with type 2 diabetes (61.3 million) and the same is expected to rise to 101.2 million by 2030, which indicates that in the next twenty years, one-fifth of the diabetic population will be in India. As such, India faces challenges in the prevention of the chronic disease, which has reached pandemic proportions, making Indians highly susceptible to the disease.

Challenging factors:
*      Diet: Indian diet is usually rich in saturated fats and carbohydrates, which contributes in making up for more calories and sugar than required by an individual on a daily basis. This is also the root cause of obesity, which is the highest risk factor of diabetes.
*      Genetic Factors: IDF also argued that Indians are four times more likely to develop diabetes as compared to Europeans as they have high genetic and ethnic susceptibility to the disease. As such, Indians are more likely to develop diabetes with minor weight gain and they also tend to develop it at a younger age as opposed to western population.
*      Lifestyle Modification: The younger generation is increasingly opting for sedentary lifestyle, combined with decreased physical activity and high fat diet – habits which have accompanied the process of urbanization and modernization – that have contributed in stimulating obesity prevalence, and consequently type 2 diabetes, in less than a generation.

Notwithstanding these challenges, taking precautions, starting with an early age, can help prevent the occurrence of Type 2 diabetes to a great extent. Fortunately, the solution to the endemic lies within the challenges itself. Following a balanced diet is the main key to type 2 diabetes prevention. Additionally, regular exercise (high and low intensity), can help maintain ideal body weight, which can further prevent obesity, making it a major factor in the prevention of the disease.

Even if the disease runs in the family, its probability of occurrence to the next generation can be prevented to a great degree if one takes these precautionary measures effectively.

Hypertension or high blood pressure, as we all know, is a chronic ailment which is quite common among the masses. However, the symptoms of the same are not easy to detect as many people suffer from it without being aware of the same.

a)   Primary   
b)   Secondary

Primary Hypertension is not associated with any specific cause. It can happen to anyone over a period of time. Hereditary blood pressure falls under this category. Secondary Hypertension, on the other hand, occurs due to another adverse health condition.

These include:

1)    Headaches (from dull to severe)

2)    Dizzy Spells

3)    Shortness Of Breath

4)    Anxiety

5)    Nose Bleed

These symptoms occur only when blood pressure level spikes suddenly. Therefore, the solution to diagnose Hypertension is to get one’s BP checked timely.

Diabetes, especially Type-2 diabetes is often termed as the 'silent killer disease'. Why? The reason behind it is that this disease does not come with prominent symptoms. Sometimes this disease is not detected until the condition gets severe. However, there are certain symptoms of Type-1 and Type-2 Diabetes, which one should know, in order to identify this ailment at an earlier stage. Let us gain an elaborative insight about this chronic disease and the warning signs that it comes with.

1. Intensive Thirst

One of the earliest symptoms of diabetes is peeing more than regular. A normal individual usually pees for 4-7 times in a day but a diabetic might do much more than that. This in turn also leads to intensive thirst as the person starts feeling much thirstier than usual. Why does this happen? This happen because the glucose, which your body reabsorbs in normal conditions, is not able to do so when your blood sugar level goes up.

2. Dry Mouth

Lack of necessary amount of fluids in the body can cause the mouth and skin to dry leading to dehydration. It can also make the skin slightly itchy.

3. Impaired Vision

As it is imperative that the fluid levels in the body change in this ailment, so, this change can make the eye lenses swell up. This, in turn, can cause the vision to blur.

4. Fatigue

The glucose that is created by the body, which usually our cells convert into energy, is brought in by insulin. Decrease in insulin automatically lowers the glucose level in the body, thus lowering the energy levels making the person feel more tired than usual.

These symptoms are general symptoms for all types of diabetes. However, when the blood sugar level rises a little higher there are different symptoms for different types of diabetes, which one ought to know.

a) Excessive Weight Loss
b) Nausea
c) Vomiting

a) Numbness/Pain in legs
