Protect your Heart with Fresh Garlic

We should balance our diet in such a way that our each part of the body gets necessary nutrients. By including GARLIC in our daily food, not only adds tastes to our food but it also gives protection against many diseases. It is also helpful in Heart Disease.

Hearts basic function is to keep blood circulation proper in our body. Blood is very important for our body.

Image Source: Google

reduce-the-risk-of-heart-disease-edited

Oxygen and important substances passes to all parts of the body through the small small veins present in our body. Carbon-dioxide is passed and reached to kidney, skin, etc. body parts through our blood only.

If this blood stops circulating then carbon-dioxide and the percentage of wastage in our body increases, because of this our body does not get oxygen and it results to immediate death.

The work of circulating blood in our body is done by our Heart. Heart works like a pump, and supplies blood in each part of our body. This process is known as Circulatory.

Food products like butter, ghee, vegetable ghee, oil, etc are fatty products these products increases the level of Cholesterol in our body. When the level of Cholestrol increases this Cholestrol sticks on the walls of veins, because of this the area of vein decreases and the area becomes narrow for the blood to pass from. So to push the  blood through viens, the heart has to struggle hard, resulting to this one experiences hyper tension, high blood pressure.

To keep the blood circulating the heart has to push blood very hard. The substances of fat that sticks on the walls of veins, does not allow the  blood to flow easily and properly because of this sometimes blood gets clotted and this clot increases the risk of an Heart Attack.

Sometimes those substances / the wastage flows with the blood and reaches to the heart, this wastage sticks on the heart and Heart Attack takes place.

A very simple example I will give you – in our house we get water through pipelines, when sometimes pipeline blocks because of the wastage and dust flow in the pipeline. The water supply stops, the same process is there with the heart function.

The main reason of heart disease is Cholesterol. Its evidence decreases by eating Onion. It is proved scientifically also. Garlic and Onion contains Oily substance. This oily substance decreases the percentage of Cholesterol present in our body. Onion and Garlic both contains the necessary oily substance but compared to onion, garlic contains more percentage of the oily substance. So by using Garlic the possibilities of blood veins becoming narrow becomes baseless.

By using Garlic in regular diet everyday the extra Cholesterol present in our body automatically destroys and the possibilities of Heart Attack becomes negligible.

In the families who have the hereditary of obesity and blood pressure should always be aware from beginning and start taking Garlic in their diet from beginning itself. Since childhood only one should eat Garlic in low percentage in their diet, then the possibilities of Heart Disease becomes zero.

Smoking damages blood veins very badly. So especially who has smoking habit, should make a point to eat Garlic regularly everyday.

One who’es Cholesterol level has increased than he should eat Garlic according to the body weight, than the balance of Cholestrol is maintained.

For example: If a person’s body weight is 80 kg his cholesterol level has increased, than he should eat 80 gm of garlic 2-3 times a day, then the level of Cholesterol decreases.

By taking precaution, eating 2-3 petals of Garlic a day makes the possibilities of Heart Attack equal to zero.

There is no other medicine available rather than Garlic which can be continued taking for a long time period. Garlic is the one and only medicine which has no side effects. Garlic has so many benefits which is mentioned in Ayurveda also.

So eat Garlic and stay healthy… :))

I would like to bring to your notice one of those – “Suryanamaskar”. We can say that Suryanamaskar is an all-rounder. It’s the one and only Asana, that affects our whole body, and tones it up. If you perform Suryanamaskar 4-5 times a day, you need nothing else to do, no jogging, walking, exercise, etc. you can do it even more times, 10 times also. Performing ‘Suryanamaskar ‘ regularly keeps you fit and healthy.

I personally also feel that Yoga is the best way to stay Fit & Healthy, I have seen many near-by people around me doing so many kinds of diets, from those some are successful in reducing their body weight, were-as some of them had bad experiences like- while dieting the weight continues to reduce, but as returning back to normal life schedule, they drastically gained weight again, as started eating normally like before.

So Yogas are one of the best which do not have any kind of side effects. By doing Yogas one gains only  benefits.

Expanding Horizons In IVF Tech

In current century, science & technology has progressed so highly, which is highly appreciable… IVF tech has achieved marvellous success now a days.. So I thought of sharing some useful information with you all…

Lets talk about in detail..

Involuntary childlessness is a psycho­logical and social dilemma for one of the partners in a marriage or for child­less couples. It can have a lifelong im­pact on many of these couples. Holiday gatherings centred around bright-eyed children seem like a happy occasion to most of us but for one group of people, it’s an aching reminder of what’s lack­ing in their life.

Several factors may ne­cessitate IVF technology for conception and birth. The most common reason for inability to conceive in women is either severely damaged or absence fallopian tubes or severe male infertility or low sperm count. But couples have many doubts about modern-day technologies that are giving new rays of hope to childless couples.

Source Image: From Googlepic4-IVF

Concerns through the following ques­tions and answers:

  • What is the solution when the patient has no uterus but wants a baby? Due to medical rea­sons, if anyone had removed uterus. Then also she  can successfully have a baby through IVF and surrogacy.
  • Is there a solution for a man who does not have a wife but still wants to become a father? Anybody who does not want to get married, but still wanted to have a child. He can have a child by using his sperm with ovum donation and surrogacy.
  • Similarly, can a woman who doesn’t have a husband become a mother? Anyone who has no de­sire to get married but she want to have a baby. Can have a baby, by using sperm donation, which helps her conceive and she can deliv­er a healthy baby.
  • Can aging women have children? As more and more women are waiting longer to have children, egg-freezing is in demand. Women can have children by using egg-freezing technology. The procedure has resulted in successful and healthy pregnancy at later ages.
  • How can a menopausal woman at­tain moth­erhood? Women suffering through menopausal can also obtain motherhood, by ovum do­nation and IVF,  get pregnant and deliver healthy baby.
  • What about medical conditions of Azo­ospermic (no sperm)? Any patient having zero sperm count. Sperm can be aspirated from tes­ticles and through technology, those couples can have a child.

So in all, the thing is, every couples can have a smile on their faces & everyone’s desire can be fulfilled, with this technology.

So it’s very nice, the people in this generation are lucky enough that techno has progressed a lot this days.  And IVF is achieving 100% success.. Otherwise, a decade back I have seen many people unhappy for not having child for whatever may be the reason..

  1. Relief in BREATHING PROBLEM – Any person suffering with breathing problem, if consumes less water, there is an increase in the percentage of breathing attack. So one should drink enough water, for reducing the possibilities of attack.
  1. Consumption QUANTITY CRITERIA – The quantity of water that you are drinking is enough or not, to find this out, what you can do : you need to keep an eye on your urine. If the urine colour is light yellowish then it means you are drinking adequate water, so not to worry, but if the urine colour is dark yellow then it means you have deficiency of water & you need to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.

Please note after knowing the advantages of Water, some people start consuming water in a large quantity, which is also not proper, access of anything is like poison, everything should be taken in an adequate quantity only.

Consumption of too much water makes Sodium present in our body dull, b’cos of this it becomes passive & is not good for our body.
