1.Every cell in our body is surrounded by a cell membrane,
composed of fatty acids. The cell membrane allows the
proper amounts of necessary nutrients to enter the cell
and ensure that waste products are quickly removed
from the cell. Cells, without a healthy membrane, lose
their ability to communicate with other cells. Researchers
believe that loss of ‘cell to cell communication’ leads to growth
of cancerous tumors. To perform their functions optimally, the
cell membrane must maintain its integrity and fluidity. When
omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into cell membranes, they
protect the body from cardiovascular disease(by raising the good
HDL cholesterol which promotes heart health), diabetes, depression
and breast cancer.It also reduces joint pain, hypertension and obesity.
Omega-3 that are found in fish are called EPA(eicosapentaenoic acid)
and DHA(docosahexaenoic acid);
Omega-3 found in plant products are called ALA(alphalinolenic acid).
The body cannot produce them, so they must be taken in through diet.
Non-fish eaters need to consume large amount of vegetables containing
the highest amount of ALA in their daily diet. Vegetables such as spinach,
broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, kidney beans, beans, yellow onions,
spaghetti, turnip greens,flax seeds,walnuts, green peppers, brussels sprouts
and all herbs contain ALA. Omega-3 fatty acids that are found in vegetables
are polyunsaturated fats. Body converts only 2 percent of ALA into EPA,
the most beneficial form of omega-3. Diets rich in omega-3 fats, produce
cell membranes with a high degree of fluidity.
2.Federal regulations in U.S.A. prohibit the use of hormones or steroids
3.Flimsy footwear offer minimal support for the 26 bones of the feet.
Switch to sturdier, athletic shoes when walking long distances, playing
sports, gardening or mowing the lawn.
4.Arthrities is the swelling of the joints and weakening of the bones.
Two common forms of arthritis are-a)Osteoarthrities(also known as
degenerative joint disease) which affects the cartilage and makes
movement painful.b)Rheumatoid arthrities occur when the body’s
immune system mistakenly attacks the synovium(cells lining the
inside of the joints) and this causes painful inflammation, swelling
and loss of function. ( stiffness) The bodily joints are surrounded
by a layer of cartilage which is a kind of protective lubricant. Pain
in the joints is caused by damage to the cartilage.
Avoid these food items that aggravate the patient’s agony,
although they don’t actually cause arthrities:-
red hot chilli powder, cheese, pork, eggs, beef, cow’s milk,
peanuts, soya, oats, corn, wheat, malt, lemon, oranges, tomato,
Apart from food, excessive alcohol consumption and smoking
have both shown a link to arthrities.
5.Snoring is usually a symptom of obstructed breathing,
a loud protest that the body isn’t getting full amount of
oxygen it needs. During the period of obstructive breathing,
the heart has to work hard to pump more blood to circulate
throughout the body. The extra work , if allowed to go on,
for many years, will weaken the heart and it develops irregular
beats. Blood pressure increases and results in an enlargement of
the heart. Snorer may have obstructive sleep and feel tired in the
morning. They become aggressive or rebellious and show clumsiness,
forgetfulness, hypertension, heart diseases and stroke.
Can snoring be cured? Yes. They should adopt an athletic
lifestyle and do regular physical exercise.
