How to Keep Your Bones Strong

The base on which our whole body is built is the skeleton, from which we get our stability, our ability to move and function. Our bones are also a factory for manufacturing red and white blood cells. It's extremely important to keep bones strong and healthy, especially in more advanced ages, when calcium seems to drain away.
A little about bone depletion:
Bone depletion, or osteoporosis, is a disease that occurs as a result of dwindling bone mass and a decrease in the levels of calcium. Along our whole life, our bones are in a continuous process of construction and destruction. However, at a young age, there is more construction than destruction. Things even out as we grow older until, in our fourth decade, destruction finally overtakes construction. As a result, our bone density drops and our bones become more prone to fractures. When this process happens in an extreme way, it is known as bone depletion. It's important to note that losing calcium also makes the bones more sensitive, even if it happens slowly. At an older age, when our balance is not what it used to be, the danger only gets worse. 
Becuase women start with a bone density that is already about 30% less than men's, and because they produce less estrogen as they grow older, they must face a bigger risk when it comes to bone depletion.
What is the recommended calcium amount?
The process of bone depletion in the body is a natural one and cannot be prevented. But it can be minimized in volume and influence, by maintaining our bones and building bone mass through correct nutrition.  
The daily calcium amount recommended for the general population is 1000 mg a day. For adults it is 1200-1500 mg a day. In addition, vitamin D is also important, as it helps the calcium absorb in the body. So if you want to keep your bones strong, you should also consume vitamin D rich foods. You can get it from the sun or from food, but it's important to have.
10 Tips to Keep Our Bones Strong
1. Consume milk products - Every child knows that milk is rich in calcium and is essential for strengthening bones. This goes for all milk products, including cheese, yogurt and alike. If you don't like cow's milk, try soy milk enriched with calcium.
2. Add nuts to your diet - Although milk has the highest ratio of calcium to volume, it is not the only source. Some nuts and seeds have handsome amounts of calcium. A 30 gram course of almonds contains 75mg of calcium, 30 grams of sesame seeds contains 37mg of calcium and sunflower seeds have 33mg of calcium.
3. Eat dark green vegetables - Broccoli, Chinese cabbage, arugula, parsley, lettuce and others are excellent sources of calcium, and contain many additional health advantages. This will help you to also diversify your sources of calcium, which is important to maintain your health.
4. Take the right Vitamin A - Vitamin A appears in two forms. The first is retinol, which appears in animal products, such as the liver. The second is beta carotene and it is the way the vitamin comes from plants, especially orange vegetables like carrot, squash or sweet potato. Studies have found that consuming too much of retinol vitamin A raises the risk of bone fraction, while vitamin A in its plant form, Beta Carotene, does not damage the bones.
5. Strengthen your bones with Vitamin K - This vitamin helps activate 3 essential proteins that are crucial for bone health. As in the case of calcium that comes from green vegetables, vitamin K also comes from the same sources. Two daily helpings of green vegetables a day give the body as much as it needs.
6. Physical activity strengthens the bones - Sorry, you knew this was coming and its of very little surprise. When we carry out a physical activity, we create pressure on our skeleton. While it is bad to overdo it, a moderate pressure is actually very health, as it sends the body signals to create more bone cells, increase the density and make it stronger. Operate the body with moderation, and don't go to far with it.
7. Eat fish - 100 grams of sardines contain an amazing amount of over 400mg of calcium! It's recommended to consume the fresh fish of course and not the canned variety. The little bones are also edible and contain a lot of calcium. Sardines, like the salmon, are also a great source of vitamin D.
8. Reduce your consumption of carbonated drinks and treats - The acid that exists in some of the popular carbonated drinks  raises the amount of acid in the blood. To compensate, the body uses the body's minerals, including calcium. If the calcium is not readily available in the blood, the body will take it from the bones and this will hard the density and strength of the bone. There is no problem drinking them once in a while, but if they are a daily habit then you can do a lot of damage to your bones over time.
9. Avoidance measures - Like a lot of other health problems, we return to smoking. Studies have shown that smoking harms bone density, as well as over consumption of alcohol and caffeine.
10. Resource allocation - We must carry out our calcium consumption in a smart way. Our body absorbs calcium best when it is no more than 500mg at one time. So, if you are planning on consuming a large amount of calcium rich foods or drinks, try to perhaps divide the meal or eat again later, to make sure the body is able to absorb all you are giving it.

‘Aharveda’ – not a diet, but a way of life which could save your life!

Astrologer Vighnesh India: +91 9445548316 / 9382633377 USA: +1 (425) 358-6565 / +1 (716) 777-3857  Wat'sapp..Consultation by web appointment 

Astrologer in US : #Astrologer in USA : #Astrologer in India : #Astrologer in Chennai : # Best Astrologer  in #Pancha Pakshi Astrology : #Astrologer in Malaysia : #Astrologer in Sri Lanka : #Astrologer in Dubai : #Astrologer in UAE
Nagpur: “No milk. No curds. No sugar. No oil. And no wheat, bajra or jowar either…absolutely no maida, no butter, cream, cheese, eggs or non veg.”

“After I finish giving these ‘commands’ all my listeners want to run for their lives! Who can live with these restrictions?? I would rather live 10 years less, than live without eating all these things – say people.”
“And then I invite them to enjoy the dinner buffet spread with me: we start with a ‘cocktail’ of vegetable juices; then a soup and then a generous spread that has all your favorite dishes – cucumber raita, dahiwada, aloo bonda, Veg Kolhapuri, Methi matar aloo, Thai curry, Tomato ‘rice’ and even very rich and creamy looking Gajar halwa and Kheer! People partake on this feast and then they are like ‘we can do this all our lives!’ ”
People listen enraptured as Harish Shetty narrates all this – he is speaking to an audience that consists largely of Nagpur High Court Judiciary, many of them are already on ‘Aharveda’ and say they have benefited hugely by following the diet.
So what is the principle behind ‘Aharveda’ – a phrase also coined by Harish for his revolutionary diet, specially with the Indian palate in mind.
‘Ahar’ means food and as we all know Vedas are our ancient scriptures. As their web site says-
” Through the Aharveda way, we are combining age-old principles of wellness – centric food science as practised in ancient India and our decades of experience in creating tasty food. The Aharveda Way will prepare you to fight today’s stress levels and ailments with lots of energy, a well-balanced body and a healthy, positive mindset. Our vision is to fight major diseases and we believe it’s possible through systematic cleansing of body and by including body balancing diet in our daily food.”
So what do you get to eat in the Aharveda plan?
Lots of fruits – they recommend upto 2 Kgs of fruits per person; lots of nimbu pani, or lemon juice, vegetables and vegetable juices, all kinds of dals and in lieu of food grains stuff like ‘bhagar’, Rajgira, Singhada atta (all the things that are allowed in ‘fasts’ ) and plenty of root vegetables like potato, sweet potato, yam/Suran and arbi.
Also all nuts and dry fruits.
So if you are wondering how ‘dahi wada’ and ‘kheer’ are made without curds or milk, here’s the answer. The curds are made of peanuts and milk for kheer comes from coconut milk and/ or crushed badam paste diluted with water. And I guarantee they taste as good or better than the stuff we know!
How did Aharveda come about?
As we all know, the Shettys of India are all into the Food Business! Whether it is in South India or Mumbai or Nagpur – one can find many popular restaurants owned by Shettys.
Harish’ family also ran a famous Vegetarian restaurant called Radhakrishna in Andheri. It served South Indian, Punjabi, Gujarathi, Chinese, Italian – the full range of international cuisine. It had seating for 500 and had been doing thriving business for four decades.
Harish had naturally joined the family business as soon as he was ready.
Then when he was just 36 years of age, one day he was suddenly gasping for breath.
“It was like someone was chocking me” recalls Harish.
He was rushed to the hospital where tests showed that all his parameters were off. His B.P., his blood sugar, his cholesterol, everything. Despite Harish being a teetotaler who did not smoke, drink or eat non veg himself.
So what had gone wrong? Life style, diet, habits, atmospheric pollution – everything seemed to have combined to make Harish very sick.
He had two alternatives before him: either begin on a regimen of pills that he would have to take life long and the dosages would only increase as he grew older or find alternative therapies for ‘cure’.
There was a stint when he tried out everything, Homeopathy, Ayurveda everything. Nothing really helped. Naturalistic food and practices finally brought some relief but Harish realized the bland food they prescribed was not something one could eat life long.
“Why should healthy be tasteless?” He asked himself.

Then he turned his kitchen into a Lab. and began experimenting. He consulted scriptures, old cook books and any literature he could get his hands on. He really educated himself on Food and began by treating himself with natural foods. He became his own Guinea pig!
Almost rapidly and miraculously his ‘parameters’ regained normalcy. He not only lost weight and but he lost years as well!
Today when he is 50, he looks like someone in his 30s! ! He is full of energy, is infectiously optimistic and cheerful and has a very positive attitude to life.
“It is absolutely true – a healthy body brings about a healthy mind and a feeling of peace and compassion towards all” he says.
“But it is not just food that will cure you” Harish cautions.
“The more important thing is breathing right, taking in plenty of oxygen. Practice deep breathing, breathing from your stomach as babies do, consciously twice- thrice a day.”
“See, you can live without food for two days, but not even a minute without air” he reminds his listeners.
Along with the food you eat, you also need to follow good eating habits. Like dinner should be had before 8 p.m.
In the mornings, have as many fruits as you can, but only one fruit at a time. After a gap of an hour, you can have another.
Between 12 and 8 p.m. is the time for cooked foods. (Cooked as per his instructions without oil – but you can use all the spices and condiments you want!)
“One should sleep by 10 p.m. and wake up as early as you can – 4 a.m. is ideal” he says.
He also generously allows you 65 days out of 365 as ‘cheat days’ when you can eat what you want! “Don’t deprive yourself of anything you love. Just eat it on a Sunday” he says. He knows forsaking your favorite foods can lead to uncontrolled cravings.
“Also when you are on a Holiday, you can give your diet a holiday too – since there is no point in second guessing the ‘health quotient’ of hotel food!”
Over the years, his ‘diet’ – or his Aharveda – found many followers and many chronic and ‘hopeless’ patients found health again.
Like the case of this 80+ lady who had such bad arthritis that she had not come down from her 3rd floor flat for almost 15 years! (There was no lift in the building in Mumbai.) Then when movement inside the flat also became painful she seriously began contemplating knee joint replacement surgeries for both knees. That was when someone introduced Harish to her. He asked her to try his Aharveda for 6 months – if it did not succeed “I will pay for your operation” promised Harish.
She followed it faithfully and in 8 months she was climbing down from her flat twice a day! She felt like she had a new lease of life.
She offered Harish the – lakhs that would have been her operation cost.

“Don’t give this to me, use it to buy fruits and other healthy food for poor people” he said.
There are many such people who have been restored health and are off most of their medications.
Every Sunday, Harish sees 100 ‘patients’ in his ‘OPD’ and talks to them about the benefits of eating Natural and Live foods that is the soul of Aharveda. For those who want to follow it strictly he makes meal plans – even giving out recipes. He has hundreds of recipes to dole out and is in the process of writing a Cook Book. His sessions are full always, one has to do advance booking for seats!
Now Harish is endeavoring to take this Science of Healthy Eating all over the country. Even all over the world. This quest brought him to Nagpur where select Nagpurians got a taste of his unique cuisine.
His next plan is to start Health Food Restaurants all over the country.
He is a Shetty, remember??!

The Top 10 Health Benefits of Cinnamon!

Astrologer Vighnesh India: +91 9445548316 / 9382633377 USA: +1 (425) 358-6565 / +1 (716) 777-3857  Wat'sapp..Consultation by web appointment  Astrologer in US : #Astrologer in USA : #Astrologer in India : #Astrologer in Chennai : # Best Astrologer  in #Pancha Pakshi Astrology : #Astrologer in Malaysia : #Astrologer in Sri Lanka : #Astrologer in Dubai : #Astrologer in UAE
At a certain point in human history, cinnamon was even more valuable than gold. It’s one of the oldest-known spices, and can offer a whole range of benefits to human health. Here are the top 10 health benefits of cinnamon:

1. Control blood sugar levels
Studies have shown that cinnamon has a special ability to help diabetics with insulin resistance to control their blood sugar levels. In fact, such people usually take cinnamon in the form of a tea or take it as a supplement.

2. Reduce levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides
Cinnamon can indirectly lower cholesterol by having an impact on how the body processes sugar and fat. When cinnamon is consumed, it decreases the level of bad, or LDL, cholesterol in the body. Doing so also decreases triglycerides.
3. Prevent Alzheimer’s disease
A cinnamon extract named CEppt has been shown to have a positive effect on the prevention of Alzheimer’s. This is believed to be down to two compounds contained in cinnamon, namely epicatechin and cinnameldeyde. Cinnamon also prevents the growth of filamentous tangles associated with Alzheimer’s.

4. Stop medication-resistant yeast infections
Yeast infections are troublesome things that can be really hard to get rid of. In fact, some of them are completely medication-resistant, making life a nightmare for a person that’s unlucky enough to get one. Cinnamon has the amazing ability to clear these infections due to its antiseptic, antiviral and antifungal properties.
5. Boost brain function
Mental clarity and alertness can be boosted drastically through the consumption of cinnamon. Just smelling this spice’s wonderful odor has been shown to boost brain activity, enhancing cognitive function and improving brain functions related to virtual recognition memory, attention and working memory.
6. Protect against heart disease            
Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, therefore it is ideal for protecting the human heart and surrounding arteries from infection and damage. Toxins, plaque and cholesterol can build up in the arteries, leading to cardiovascular disease and other heart problems. Cinnamon can alleviate the risks posed as a result of the build-up of these “nasties” inside the heart and arteries.
7. Improve blood circulation
Blood circulation can be improved by consuming cinnamon, and this is because it contains a compound that can thin out the blood.. Good blood circulation equals a good oxygen supply to the human body’s cells, thus leading to higher metabolic activity. Another positive effect is the reduction of heart attack risk.

8. Relieve pain
The anti-inflammatory properties of cinnamon can help to alleviate muscle and joint stiffness. In fact, it is recommended for athletes and those who suffer from arthritis. It’s also good at abolishing headaches brought on by colds.

9. Prevent development of cancer
Cancer cells can be prevented from growing by adding cinnamon to a regular diet. It has been shown to be particularly effective at reducing leukemia and lymphoma cell growth.

10. Natural form of birth control
Regular cinnamon consumption after childbirth is an excellent, natural option for birth control.. This is because cinnamon can delay menstruation and help to avoid conception.

What Is Low Back Pain?

Low back pain is a universal human experience -- almost everyone has it at some point. The lower back, which starts below the ribcage, is called the lumbar region. Pain here can be intense and is one of the top causes of missed work. Fortunately, low back pain often gets better on its own. When it doesn't, there are effective treatments.

Symptoms of Low Back Pain

Symptoms range from a dull ache to a stabbing or shooting sensation. The pain may make it hard to move or stand up straight. Acute back pain comes on suddenly, often after an injury from sports or heavy lifting. Pain that lasts more than three months is considered chronic. If your pain is not better within 72 hours, you should consult a doctor.

Symptoms That Require Urgent Care

Severe back pain after a fall or injury should be checked out by a health care professional. Other warning signs include a loss of bowel or bladder control, leg weakness, fever, and pain when coughing or urinating. If you have any of these symptoms along with your back pain, contact your doctor.

Muscle Strain or Sciatica?

The kind of back pain that follows heavy lifting or exercising too hard is often caused by muscle strain. But sometimes back pain can be related to a disc that bulges or ruptures. If a bulging or ruptured disc presses on the sciatic nerve, pain may run from the buttock down one leg. This is called sciatica.

Back Pain Culprit: Your Job

If your job involves lifting, pulling, or anything that twists the spine, it may contribute to back pain. However, sitting at a desk all day comes with risks of its own, especially if your chair is uncomfortable or you tend to slouch.

Back Pain Culprit: Your Bag

Although you may wear your purse, backpack, or briefcase over your shoulder, it is the lower back that supports the upper body -- including any additional weight you carry. So an overstuffed bag can strain the lower back, especially if you carry it day after day. If you must tote a heavy load, consider switching to a wheeled briefcase.

Back Pain Culprit: Your Workout

Overdoing it at the gym or golf course is one of the most common causes of overextended muscles leading to low back pain. You're especially vulnerable if you tend to be inactive during the work week and then spend hours at the gym or softball field on the weekend.

Back Pain Culprit: Your Posture

Mom was right when she said, "Stand up straight!" Your back supports weight best when you don't slouch. This means sitting with good lumbar support for your lower back, shoulders back, with feet resting on a low stool. When standing, keep weight evenly balanced on both feet.

Back Pain Culprit: Herniated Disc

The spine's vertebrae are cushioned by gel-like discs that are prone to wear and tear from aging or injuries. A weakened disc may rupture or bulge, putting pressure on the spinal nerve roots. This is known as a herniated disc and can cause intense pain.

Back Pain Culprit: Chronic Conditions

Several chronic conditions can lead to low back pain.
  • Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord, which can put pressure on the spinal nerves.
  • Spondylitis refers to chronic back pain and stiffness due to severe inflammation of the spinal joints.
  • Fibromyalgia causes widespread muscle aches, including back pain.

Who's at Risk for Low Back Pain?

Most people get their first taste of low back pain in their 30s. The odds of additional attacks increase with age. Other reasons your low back may hurt include:
  • Being overweight
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Jobs that require heavy lifting

Diagnosing Low Back Pain

To help your doctor diagnose the source of low back pain, be specific in describing the type of pain, when it started, related symptoms, and any history of chronic conditions. Your doctor may order X-rays, CT or MRI scans to look for damaged bones or discs, or other injuries to the spine.

Home Care for Low Back Pain

Back pain due to muscle strain will usually get better on its own, but you can take steps to make yourself more comfortable. A heating pad or warm baths may provide temporary pain relief.

The Bed Rest Debate

When your back hurts, you may not feel like getting out of bed. But if the problem is muscle strain, doctors recommend returning to your normal activities as soon as possible. Studies suggest that any more than a day or two of bed rest can actually make the pain worse and may reduce muscle tone and flexibility.

If back pain doesn't go away in three months, there's evidence that yoga can help. In one recent study, people who took 12 weeks of yoga classes had fewer symptoms of low back pain than people who were given a book about care for back pain. The benefits lasted several months after the classes were finished. The study suggests conventional stretching also works just as well. Make sure your instructor is experienced at teaching people with back pain and will modify postures for you as needed.

Spinal Manipulation

Chiropractors and some osteopathic doctors use spinal manipulation to treat low back pain by applying pressure with their hands to bones and surrounding tissues. This treatment is not appropriate for everyone.

Massage Therapy

A study funded by the government suggests that massage may help relieve chronic low back pain. After 10 weeks, people who had weekly massages had less pain and were better able to go about their daily activities than people who got traditional care. That was true no matter what type of massage they got, and the benefits lasted at least six months.

Can acupuncture treat back pain? The evidence is mixed. In 2009, a study of several hundred people with long-lasting back pain found surprising results. Those who had simulated acupuncture (involving toothpicks tapping the skin) got the same benefits as those who had real acupuncture with needles. After eight weeks, both groups had greater relief than people who did not have acupuncture.


Mild back pain often feels better with over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen. Pain-relieving creams may be helpful for muscle aches. For severe pain or chronic pain, your doctor may recommend prescription medication.

If simpler therapies and medications aren't helping, your doctor may recommend injections to the back. One procedure, called a nerve root block, targets irritated nerves. Injections for back pain usually contain steroid medication.

If long-lasting back pain is interfering with your daily life, and other treatments have not provided relief, you may be a candidate for surgery. Depending on the cause of your pain, a surgeon may remove a herniated disc, widen the space around the spinal cord, and/or fuse two spinal vertebrae together.

Physical Therapy

If back pain has left you inactive for a long time, a rehabilitation program can help you strengthen your muscles and get back to your daily activities. A physical therapist can guide you through stretches, strength exercises, and low-impact cardio that will help you be fitter without straining your back.

Strengthening the Back

Two types of strength-training moves that may benefit the lower back are flexion and extension exercises. In flexion exercises, you bend forward to stretch the muscles of the back and hips. In extension exercises, you bend backward to develop the muscles that support the spine. One example is doing leg lifts while lying on your stomach. Depending on the cause of your back pain, there are some exercises you should not do. If you have back pain, make sure to talk to your doctor about what exercises are safe for you.

Preventing Low Back Pain

There's no sure way to prevent back pain as you age, but there are steps you can take to lower your risk:
  • Stay at a healthy weight.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Lift with your legs, not your back.
  • Make sure your work station position isn't contributing to your pain.
