Do not let your 3 inches tongue take control of your health

Seriously, around 6 feet person health cannot be controlled with the taste of the tongue right. 

The Dopamine 

We cannot conclude any food carving without mention of Dopamine.

Why?

Simple the carving of the fast food or sugar drinks are trigger dopamine which is the reason for the addictive behavior. 

Live food

Eat live food that is being given by nature or god. That is what is made for you by nature to consume.

Here is why you should not eat any processed foods.

  • They are made to store with all those additives for long life, which are not good for your health
  • They usually come with added Sugars, so that you addict for those foods when you eat
  • Processed foods may have their natural ingredients, vitamins and minerals are already gone because of your shelf life

Prefer fruits rather than snacks, prefer cereals, millet's etc than starchy glucose foods, prefer fermented foods over processed foods.

The Kitchen

The person who cooks in the Kitchen is definitely your first level of defense for the entire family healthy.

Do not agree?

How about replacing the bread with sourdough?

How about replacing those sugary morning drinks with Tepache(Fermented pineapple drink)?

How about replacing those lunch with millet diet(rich in fibre)?

The Utensils

Kitchen utensils good vs bad

Does utensils play a role in daily health?

The utensils, pressure you cook, temperature does matter. If you are cooking at those high temperatures with that pressure would remove all nutrients from the food.

A plastic spoon vs steel/bamboo, a pan teflon coated vs bronze, pressure cooker vs pot with mud, an aluminum vessel react to lemon all make differences. Basically you have to choose the utensils which do not react with the food you are preparing and have high boiling points.

In simple words they should not react with cooking items and should withstand high temperatures.

Brass, Bronze may be costlier but they are also long lasting, spending one time on such healthy items is ok right?

For the same reason the Mud, Brass, Bronze utensils are preferred as a part of older culture due to even heating cooking. They may also need less oil when compared to other metals. They do not react and can withstand high temperatures.

Fasting

Fasting is the art of retrieving your body. Many doctors say the process of repair is done in your body when you sleep. That is the time when you give body time.

Intermittent fasting is the practice where you give a window to your body and do not eat any thing in this time period. This is picking the interest over the last decade and is being suggested by doctors across the world

How does it help?

Body caries out all repairing and helps you to stay healthy. How much time period start small and go to 12, and 16 hours slowly. Sounds crazy, but may not be. You usually sleep 8 to 10 hours, those extra 4 to 6 hours eating nothing would quickly help you to reach the mark.

Here is the Dr. Pardip Jamnadas, a cardiologist explaining about benefits of Fasting

 

Believe me, it may start with craving initially and your body gets adjusted slowly. Having a Lunch with all good food, necessary small dinner is great way to have control of your body.

Do you know your body can repair all those damaged cells if you give it time(by fasting).

Fast atleast once a week, it has the benefits which you feel when you do the fasting. Fasting for 24 hours to 48 hours has great way to reduce fats and glucose from your body and also cleanse your body.

Air

Air Quality is important factor where we over rule in daily routine.

Having the plants which can remove the toxins from the air are one of the easy way to keep away from polluted air. Snake plant, Spider plant, Peace lily, Golden Pothos, Rubber tree etc are known to remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene 

Air Humidifiers may be the one of the thing we want to talk in this article.

Why?

Sit in your room and see all those electrical devices, they are heat emitting devices and heat up your room removing all the moisture in the air. 

Use a water in a decorative bowl, a simple humidifier which heats up water to produce moisture is good for you.

How does it help?

Dryness of your skin, eye or throat may subsidise, could improve your sleep disorders, can help manage your allergies.

Exercise

Exercise should be part of daily routine.

Morning a walk of 1hr 15 mins(why your body has usually 5 litres of blood, 15 mins for each litre to clean your fat/glucose), 30 mins of swimming, 15 mins of HITT, 1 hour of Gym anything right make it a part of your daily routine.

Come up with a plan and do it every day. Do not over commit, just stick to one pattern.

I know a person who started with 2 hours of walking(promised himself to walk a 1 hour day), than skip the next day as he has done 2 hours last day, next day with 45 mins and than finally 15 mins to stop after that.

Conclusion: Most of this are known and preserved in every culture. 

  • Drink healthy structure water, do not over purify if it is not needed. 
  • Food is the important part of dietary, treat it as the medicine you are taking to improve your gut health. Eat live food.
  • We are living in polluted environment, ensure you have great indoor plants that improve your workplace or home. Try to maintain moisture in your air which you breath
  • Exercise enough and make it a daily routine whatever you like a gym, HITT, swimming, trekking, walking anything that would work out for you
