A healthy life is important to lead a good life. Our health is like a wall pre-requisite to draw a picture. We are the architect of our own health. Either we prevent being unhealthy or cure the damage already done. Physical fitness is very vital. Fitness is a relative term. A sprinter should have a different degree of fitness as compared to a music teacher. There are many more dimensions one can bring to define fitness. Depending upon the required level of fitness, one should take appropriate steps.

More than five billion people live in this world. The body constitution of each one of us is different. The calories needed for every individual is different. There is no one common prescription for everyone in this world. Let us take few examples. The energy level needed for a professional designer is different from a taxi driver. To prescribe a labourer to grab a cereal bar for breakfast is ridiculous. My dad’s friend, a chain smoker died at the age of 83! Believe me, I observed him leading a healthy life. I am not recommending you to smoke to live a healthy life. I try to drive home the point that you should not get carried away by exciting information that is available around you and go overboard to apply in your daily life also. That is dangerous to a healthy life.

While we cannot have five billion suggestions for physical fitness and healthy life, we can identify common needs for all of us. Whether you are an Olympic champion or an office clerk; a celebrity or a hair dresser, only three appropriate steps have to be taken by you. Look at your eating habit, physical fitness exercise and exercise for the mind. You can build further with many bolts-on to achieve laurels in life.

We can use our common sense to lead a healthy life. It does not require great knowledge about science or medicine or physical exercise. Leave that to the specialists. We are all aware that food is very important for sustenance. Our body is a mysterious workshop containing various machines. Food is its input. The machine processes the food and provides energy to the body to do our daily life activities. If the input to the machine is more than its capacity to process, obviously the machine will break down. If the quality of input to the machine is not conducive to the construction of the machine, again the machine will collapse. Apart from the quality and quantity of intake, we should pay attention to timing. There is a saying. I am sure all of us know this. We should eat breakfast like a prince. In the after noon, we should eat lunch like a king. In the night, we should eat meal like a beggar. The digesting power during the night is very poor. Also there is no physical activity involved in the night when we sleep. So allow the stomach t be half filled. Have your dinner couple of hours before going to bed. When we wake up in the morning, if we take a glass of water, it helps for the body to hydrate to prepare for the day’s job. How we cannot start our car with 4th gear, the same way we should consider our body. After 10 hrs of empty stomach when we break the fast, we should start with simple and easily digestible food. Basically we should start with first gear and move on. In my view, to have physical fitness, 3 times of intake – morning, afternoon and night is sufficient. Perhaps refreshment between lunch and dinner can also be incorporated. The key driver is to scrupulously follow the routine timing of intake. This is a good recipe for a healthy life.

Our stomach is the origin for all our ailments. Even the main reason for bad breath originates from the stomach only. If we do not take care of our stomach and brush our teeth with costliest tooth paste and wash our mouth with most expensive liquid mouth wash, the bad breath will not vanish. We should keep our stomach clean by taking appropriate quantity, quality of food in routine timings. It is easier said than done but not impossible. You know who is the culprit? It is our tongue. If we pay heed to the taste, then we would not be able to control the quantum. It does not mean that we should not enjoy the taste. In fact the tongue contributes to a great deal for healthy life. When we enjoy food, we feel good. Feeling good is a sign of healthy life. If someone asks you to take only green vegetables to have physical fitness, there is no difference between us and herbivores. But the trick is not to cross the limit of moderation. That will be counter productive. Give importance to the taste but be careful. We should eat to live and not live to eat.

Many of us believe that being slim leads to a healthy life. One of my friends is slim but has cholesterol. It is a wrong notion. The body structure of each one of us is different. An elephant should not try to become a horse. Nature has created that way. What is important is to prevent becoming over weight or obese or under weight. If the damage is done, consult specialist to get back on track. Do not perform any physical fitness exercise without the proper guidance of a physical education expert. Sometimes you are the expert of knowing your own do-s and don’t-s. The first day when I went to learn Tai Chi, Chinese version of Yoga, the master told me to rotate my neck clockwise and anticlockwise as a warm up exercise. However I was earlier told by my orthopedic surgeon not to rotate my neck to recover from a type of spondylities I had. What was good for others did not suit me. There will be many such situations where we should use our wisdom. Especially we have to be careful on physical fitness exercise.

Life is a series of experiences. If our experiences are good we say the life is good, otherwise we say the life is bad. Mind determines whether an experience is good or bad. Healthy life is achieved by the combination of healthy body and healthy mind. Mind does not exist in our brain. Mind is a subtle matter manifests in our astral body between our soul and physical body. The food we eat is converted into energy by the blood and the finest particles of food reach the subtle mind and then to still subtler intellect. While healthy food definitely supports for a healthy mind, nevertheless exercise to the mind is also very important to have a healthy life. Yoga is considered to be one of the best forms of giving exercise to the body and mind. A branch of Yoga has physical fitness exercise also. Meditation is another form of giving healthy exercise to the mind. These have to be practiced with the help of specialists. This is the body-mind-intellect complex. A simple but effective understanding and application of the above will go a long way to attain a healthy life.

Neuromyelitis optica is a medical condition related to the eyes and is also known as NMO or Devic’s disease. This condition involves a concurrent inflammation and demyelination of the optic nerve as well as the spinal cord. This ultimately causes varying degrees of blindness, as well as symptoms of the lower extremities which include weakness and paralysis of the legs, and bladder as well as bowel dysfunction. This is an auto-immune condition, but is different from multiple sclerosis. NMO may be associated with other systemic diseases, and is diagnosed by the presence of antibodies in the blood. Acute attacks rapidly bring about disability, which can be treated satisfactorily with intravenous steroids, plasmapheresis, and immuno-suppressant drugs. However, this condition displays a tendency for relapse and there is no long-term cure.

Being an auto-immune disorder, the mainstay of Ayurvedic herbal treatment is to provide immunomodulation to affected individuals so as to reverse the main pathology of the disease. In addition, symptomatic treatment needs to be given for all the presenting symptoms in affected individuals. Ayurvedic herbal medicines which have a specific affinity for the optic nerve and retina are used in high doses for prolonged periods. In addition – depending upon the presentation of symptoms – different herbal medicines are used to treat weakness and paralysis of the lower limbs as well as involvement of the bladder and bowels.

Medicines which have an anti-inflammatory action are useful in the treatment of this condition so as to prevent further damage to the affected nerves. Herbal medicines which have a direct action on the central nervous system and which bring about a gradual reversal of demyelination, and repair of nerves are used successfully in the management of NMO. These medicines include Saptamrut Loh, Panchtikta Ghrut, Triphala Ghrut, Triphala Guggulu, Punarnava Mandur, Punarnava Guggulu, Trayodashang Guggulu, Sameerpannag Ras, Maha Vat Vidhvans Ras, Bruhat Vat Chintamani Ras, Manjishthadi Qadha, Saarivadi Vati, Pathyadi Qadha, Saraswatarishta, Brahmi Vati and Vasant Kusumakar Ras.

Herbal medicines which have a specific action on damaged nerves include Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Bala (Sida cordifolia), Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri), Shankapushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis), Vacha (Acorus calamus), Jatamansi (Nardostachys jatamansi), Haridra (Curcuma longa), and Yashtimadhuk (Glycyrrhiza glabra). Herbal medicines which have an anti-inflammatory action include Guggulu (Commiphora mukul), Punarnava (Boerhaavia diffusa), Triphala (Three fruits), Shallaki (Boswellia serrata), Lashun (Allium sativum), Sunthi (Zinziber officinale), Manjishtha (Rubia cordifolia), and Saariva (Hemidesmus indicus).

Medicines which bring about immunomodulation in affected individuals include herbal medicines like Kutki (Picrorrhiza kurroa), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), Bhrungraj (Eclipta alba), Pippali (Piper longum), Bhumiamalaki (Phyllanthus niruri), Chitrak (Plumbago zeylanica), Patol (Tricosanthe dioica), Patha (Cissampelos pareira), Nimba (Azadirachta indica), Musta (Cyperus rotundus), Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) and Amalaki (Emblica officinalis).

Oral treatment in the form of herbal tablets can also be supplemented with the use of herbal eye drops as well as application of medicated oils and ointments on the back and lower extremities. Ayurvedic herbal treatment is usually required for periods ranging from 12-18 months, depending upon the severity of the condition. The aim of Ayurvedic treatment is to treat symptoms, prevent further degeneration of vision and lower limb disability, and bring about recovery to the maximum extent possible. Ayurvedic herbal treatment thus has a definite and positive role in the treatment and management of neuromyelitis optica.

Introduction

From a health standpoint sugar is your enemy but this does not mean you must give up sweeteners. The sweetener stevia is made from the leaves of stevia rebaudiana, a plant that is native to South America. In December 2008 Stevia was approved as a natural sweetener by the Food and Drug Administration. This cleared the way for many people to be able to enjoy its benefits.

Since approved as a sweetener the use of stevia has risen rapidly in the US. It is now available under the brand names such as Only Sweet, SweetLeaf, fructevia, Slimtevia, Nustevia, PureVia, Reb-A and Truvia. The following is representative but not an exhaustive list of stevia based sweeteners.

Stevia products

SweetLeaf

SweetLeaf® is made by using the leaves of the stevia plant and extracting their naturally sweet taste with only cool, purified water. No chemicals, alcohols, or additives are used. SweetLeaf® is the only chemical-free, zero-calorie, zero-carb, zero-glycemic index, 100% natural sweetener. Stevia is very sweet and contains zero calories. It is a good choice for use when trying to lose weight. A teaspoon of table sugar for example, contains 16 calories. Stevia seems to be the ideal sweetener for people watching their weight and needing to control their blood sugar. It however has a bitter after taste that some people find objectionable.

Fructevia

Fructevia is a blend of Rebaudioside A an extract from stevia, Fructose, Magnesium Carbonate,and nutritional supplements called Fructo-Oligosaccharides.

Fructevia is about three times as sweet as sugar so you use 1/3 to half as much. The company guaranties Fructevia will not have a bitter after taste. There are no genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) in Fructevia and it contains no Gluten or chemicals. It is completely a product of nature. Fructevia is a healthful sweetener but much sweeter than sugar yet with a small fraction of the calories and virtually no effect on blood sugar. It is the Fructose that keeps the stevia from being bitter. This is particularly true when only small amounts are used.

The Magnesium in Fructevia is an important mineral for your health including nerves, muscles, bones, and heart. Studies have reported that Americans are dangerously magnesium-deficient.

What is fructose?

Fructose, or fruit sugar, in Fructevia is a monosaccharide (simple sugar) found in many plants. The glycemic index for Fructose is low (19). Fructose has the lowest Index rating of all natural sugars. Fructose is not the same as high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

SLIMTEVIA

The ingredients of Slimtevia are basically this same as that of Fructevia. Slimtevia like Fructevia adds a little fructose to eliminate the bitter after taste and still have a product that does not raise your blood sugar level. Slimtevia like Fructevia doesn’t spike your blood sugar and does not have the bitter taste associated with pure stevia.

NuStevia

An individual packet is one serving which is ½ tsp. powder (1). A packet of NuStevia contains 80 mg of stevia and 920 mg of Maltodextrinand a very small amount of natural flavors. Thus NuStevia is only 8.96% stevia and over 91% is maltodextrin. The glycemic index for maltodextrin is 150 which is high.Maltodextrinis a type of carbohydrate. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis. The actual glycemic index for maltodextrin (150) is high. The amount of maltodextrin however a serving of NuStevia White Stevia is less than a gram. This mixture with 91% maltodextrin is reported to not have the bitter after taste associated with regular stevia even though it will increase your blood sugar level a little. 1 tspof NuSteviais as sweet as 1 tspof sugar (1 cup= 1 cup).

Truvia

The development of Truvia was supported by a major large soft drink company who was instrumental in causing FDA to approve the use of stevia. The power of money is interesting indeed. Truvia is a stevia-based sugar substitute. Truvia is a combination of two different types of sweeteners: rebiana and erythritol with natural flavors. Erythritol is a “sugar alcohol” made by fermenting glucose with yeast. Sugar alcohols are generally recognized as safe but they can cause bloating, gas, diarrhea and can have a laxative effect. Erythritol tends to present less of a problem of these effects than other types of sugar alcohols.

Rebiana is the main ingredient in Truvia. It’s a purified form of rebaudioside A, which is one of the components of the stevia plant. Since its introduction in 2008, Truvia has become the number two selling sugar substitute in the United States, surpassing Equal and Sweet’n Low. It is still small next to Splenda which reportedly has negative health implications. Splenda is not a stevia product. Splenda represents 60% of the sugar substitute market. Splenda will give you a big sugar spike as it is 95% Malto-Dextrin or some variant thereof. The Glycemic Index is higher than Table Sugar. Truvia and PureVia are both stevia extract sweeteners sold by major economic powers who market soft drinks.

PureVia

PureVia® is Pepsi’s sweetener developed from stevia. It is low-calorie sugar substitute developed jointly by PepsiCo and Whole Earth Sweetener Company PureVia is a blend of several different ingredients. It contains dextrose, cellulose powder; natural flavors as well as the stevia extract rebaudioside A.

Summary

Some stevia products such as sweetleaf are made by just extracting the sweetener using water without any additives producing a safe and healthy product. Fructevia and Slimtevia add a little fructose to eliminate the bitter after taste associated with stevia. They are a healthy sweetener that does not raise your blood sugar level. NuStevia uses Maltodextrin to eliminate the bitter taste of stevia. A serving contains 80 mg of Stevia extract and 920 mg of Maltodextrin. Thus NuStevia contains only 8.96% stevia and over 91% maltodextrin. Truvia and PureVia® are developed sweeteners from stevia and made by two major soft drink manufactures.

Herbal supplements are widely known for their many amazing health benefits. Even in ancient cultures, parts of plants are consumed to relieve pain and treat common health problems such as sleeplessness, stomachache, colds, and fever. While there are a lot of synthetically produced nutritional supplements and medicines available in the market today, most people prefer to take herbal supplements not only to treat various illnesses but also to rev up their immune system and improve overall health. Despite the fact that primary care doctors don’t recommend the use of herbs and botanical remedies, a number of pharmaceutical industries are still earning billions from producing various health products derived from plants and other natural sources.Some of the reasons why most people are turning to natural supplements and cures are that unlike some common synthetic drugs, they are easily absorbed by the body and are safe because they don’t have any adverse side effects.

With thousands of herbal supplements out there, it is really hard to find out which product can provide you with enormous health benefits. Aside from that, not all supplements available in pharmaceutical stores are properly produced and the government has no strict regulations when it comes to herbal products so it is very important to carefully choose the best brand of natural supplement. Before purchasing a certain herbal supplement make sure to check the information listed in the product label. If you can’t decide on the right supplement because you have recurring illnesses, are taking medications, or if you are pregnant, it is more prudent if you meet with a nutritionist or make a detailed research of the brand name.

Some of the common herbal supplements and remedies are garlic, Echinacea, bee pollen, and ginseng. Garlic has been used for centuries in cooking and as treatment for severe health problems. Raw garlic has overwhelming health benefits that it is considered a marvelous herbal medicine. Modern researches found out that garlic has anti-oxidant and natural anti-biotic properties. Garlic is used as a natural remedy for pimples and acne, and it’s also use to treat common colds, reduce blood cholesterol level, regulate blood sugar, and prevent cardiovascular diseases. Garlic has a sharp taste and strong odor that most people prefer to take garlic supplements to avoid the lingering smell. Echinacea which is a native plant in North America is also a powerful remedy for all types of infections and cancer. Taking Echinacea herbal supplement can help improve immune system naturally. Bee pollen is another popular supplement that contains many awesome benefits. It is actually classified as one of the nature’s super food as it contains natural substances such as vitamins B,C,D,E, beta-carotene,iron, manganese, calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, and selenium, that are necessary for optimal health.

Like getting the latest Jamie Oliver recipe right, skincare is a fine balance between scientific technology and natural ingredients. Unlike Mr Oliver's 'chuck it in' approach, your skincare has to be measured in perfect amounts to create the best healthy skin formula.

So what is the essential ingredient to add to the recipe for ultimate skin rejuvenation action? Recombumin, derived from human albumin, is the world's first and only animal-free, commercially available recombinant approved for use in the manufacture of human therapeutics.

What does that mean exactly? Imagine your skincare regime as ingredients for a cake, so you have the eggs (cleanser), toner (sugar) and moisturizer (flour), but without that tiny magic ingredient, baking powder, your cake is destined to look flat, understernished and un -appetising. The same applies to your face!

Albumin, used primarily for burn victims can be used to promote bright, replenished and healthy skin for every face. For those unfortunate enough to suffer from burns will be pleased to hear that aluminum is excellent for regeneration of skin cells to reveal a beautiful body or face.

Those amazing amino acid residues are found within aluminum that act as a building block for proteins. These proteins that can have a positive effect upon cells help to improve skin that has been scarred or has stretch marks. When used correctly, amino acids seem to be more powerful than other systems of skin care in terms of filling lines, smoothing skin and improving tone and color. Even better, they can achieve this with less irritation and photosensitivity.

It's also understood that amino acids, applied externally in the right formula and also taken internally, can improve the skin's ability to stay hydrated. Properly hydrated skin not only takes and holds cosmetics better, but looks and feels more youthful.

Albumin is not just used in skin care; It has proven preferable to artificial mediums, ideal as a stabilizer in pharmaceutical and biotech products, effective as a drug delivery vehicle, and very useful in cryo preservation and cell culture, and even infertility treatments.

Albumin functions primarily as a carrier protein for steroids, fatty acids, and thyroid hormones and plays a role in stabilizing extracellular fluid volume. Mutations in this gene on chromosome 4 result in various anomalous proteins.

Albumin is a globular unglycosylated serum protein of molecular weight 65,000. The human aluminum gene is 16,961 nucleotides long from the putative 'cap' site to the first poly (A) addition site. It is split into 15 exons which are symmetrically placed inside the 3 domains that are thought to have arisen by triplication of a single primordial domain.

Your skin is one of the most valuable organs of the body (yes it's an organ!). It absorbs, regulates heat and cold, holds you together and looking after it mean you stay looking younger for longer!

Pests have been a major cause of concern for agriculturists since decades. While the usage of chemical pesticides has affected health adversely, scientists and researchers find new methods to prevent destruction of crops. The use of herbal pesticides is considered one of the best alternatives to prevent destruction of crops by pests.

Some of the Reasons Why Herbal Pesticides are Used

Herbal pesticides are effective in controlling pests and are used widely by farmers all over the world. The uses of herbal pesticides have been encouraged by health departments because it hardly leaves any side effects on human health. The use of chemical pesticides has known to cause cancer and other life threatening diseases.

These pesticides seldom cause any harm to the health of the farmers. Since the herbal pesticides do not contain any chemicals, it does not contaminate our food. It is in fact considered one of the best methods to protect our crops and the environment. Another reason for the increased usage of herbal pesticides is that it does not linger in the soil or on the crops for long thereby causing no concern regarding the health of the consumers.

Most of these pesticides are used in the form of oil and sprayed on to the plants. Plants like mint, rosemary, clove and so forth are used as pesticides. These pesticides help to repel the pests as well as kill the bugs. It has a strong aroma that drives away pests. Another advantage of using the herbal pesticides is that farmers can use it without the need of any kind of regulatory approval as it does not contain harmful chemicals. Moreover, pests and insects seldom develop resistance to these pesticides.

Availability of Pesticides Online

Pesticides which are natural and made of herbs can be easily made at home but now there are many websites that offer different choices of pesticides. Due to the increasing use of herbal pesticides, manufacturers have resorted to the online product directories to post ads for their products.

Some of the most reliable suppliers of these pesticides are the Lasky Herbal (India), Sikko Industries Private Limited, Modern Pest Control, Zebra Organics, Apara International and so forth. The pesticides supplied these companies are harmless to human beings and are effective in controlling pests of all kinds. Neem is also another effective pesticide that is used widely. There are a number of pesticides that use neem as its ingredient.

However, it is important to understand that while using pesticides, great care must be taken not to destroy the useful insects with it. It is always better to spray the pesticides directly on to the pests. Since these pesticides are sprayed on to the plants, its effect does not last for long and as a result requires frequent spraying to prove effective.

Today, the ill effects of chemicals and other harmful pesticides have prompted agriculturists to use herbal pesticides to drive away troublesome pests and rodents and to improve the quality of the soil. The invention of these pesticides have indeed contributed in protecting our environment and more important for our health.

Some doctors believe that the penis is a barometer of a man’s overall health and that issues that affect the penis – such as chronically dry penis skin – should be looked at to see if they indicate any larger problems. With this in mind, is it possible that something like dry penis skin could give a clue as to how healthy another body part is – such as perhaps the liver? It’s interesting to think, and important to note, that paying attention to penis health could have benefits beyond the pleasure one derives from the penis at play.

Why should there be a connection between the state of one’s penis skin and the state of one’s liver? It’s hard to imagine that these two organs – one internal, one external, with functions that are so different from one another – could be connected in some way. Yet there is a basis for this.

What does the liver do?

Everyone knows the liver is vitally important, yet most people don’t know what it does. In fact, the liver plays a huge role in the metabolic processes that keep the body functioning at a healthy level.

Among its most important functions are taking the nutrients that one gets from food and drink and converting them into substances that are in the right form for the body to make efficient use of. It then stores these substances until there is a need for them, at which time it sends them on their way to the cells in need.

Another crucial role it plays: taking toxins – substances that are not useful to and are potentially harmful to the body – and either de-toxifying them (so they are basically harmless) or making sure they get sent out of the body.

Poor liver function

If the liver doesn’t function properly, it means the body doesn’t get the good substances it needs and/or it gets bad substances (toxins) that can harm it. The body then needs to find another way to rid itself of the toxins that the liver isn’t handling. And often it does that by secreting the toxins through the skin.

And that’s where dry skin comes in. Often when the body is called upon to get rid of these toxins through sweat, the toxins then create a skin reaction. Dermatitis, eczema, wrinkling, acne and red, itchy rashes are just a few of the ways that inappropriate toxin release manifests.

Penis sweating

Many men can testify that sweating is common around the penis. There’s a reason for this. The penis and testicles tend to be among the warmest parts of the body. Part of this is biological. The thick mane of hair surrounding the penis creates natural insulation. In addition, the penis skin is very thin, in order to allow proper growth during the erect phase, and the rate of blood flow is high in the penis. These also contribute to the generation of heat.

Location adds to the sweatiness. The fact that the organ is nestled between the thighs and usually hidden between two layers of clothes creates extra heat. All of this means that the penis tends to create a great deal of sweat – and therefore to release toxins if the liver is not functioning at its full capacity.

Does that mean that a man with dry penis skin automatically has a liver issue? Absolutely not – but if it is chronic, he may want to bring his concerns to the attention of his physician, in order to determine if there is any connection in his particular case.

Most often there is not a connection with a serious liver condition – but that still leaves a man with a dry penis to deal with. Fortunately, using a first-rate penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can help. A crème that includes both a high-end emollient (like Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E) offers double-barreled moisturizing that can soothe and repair dry, damaged skin. Add extra protection by selecting a crème with a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, which offsets harmful oxidative processes and smooths wrinkled appearances. Paying attention to penis health has multiple benefits for a man, including better look and feel.
