INDEPENDENCE FROM ILLNESS

By Gaurang Chandarana | August 12th, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

BACKGROUND

There are multiple illnesses these days which strike sooner or later. These are mostly non-communicable in nature, like high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, asthma, stress related diseases and cancers. Most of these are caused by lifestyle issues, pollution and wrong eating habits. Many a times, one may not get these diseases but get minor things cold, flu, fever, falling ill frequently and so on. The other problem faced are orthopedic in nature, ranging from mild aches and pains to arthritis and more severe bone and joint problems.

There is a lot of information available all over for a plethora of these problems from across the World. These range from the tested to the untried, from solid therapies to fad diets. Everything is par for the game as disease prevention and management is big money. Governments across the World are trying to do their bit. However, one cannot reach out to every single individual nor can one customize to the last T. This leaves it to us to take care of the health of our near and dear ones as well as of ourselves.

THE PROBLEM

The problem or causes could be many for all of these problems. However, the main is a generally weaker constitution of the population. The inflammation of the immune system then triggers these problems to varying degrees in different individuals. So there is a three-pronged strategy to tackle this problem:

1)     Make sure you do not fall ill by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise.

2)     Assuming you fall ill, do not ignore the symptoms, however minor. It is always the minor unaddressed things which lead to bigger problems, gradually.

3)     Having got some form of illness or health challenge, do no ignore it. Get into a great regimen consisting of lifestyle, diet, medicines and regular habits.

 

THE SOLUTION

There is one solution which takes care of all the three points mentioned above. That is Yoga. Yoga is not just physical asanas or pranayamas (breathing techniques). It involves nutrition (yogic diet), stress management and calming of the mind and the inflammation system. All of these soon take hold and turn around your body, so to speak. It is important to collect information on the same and also try out some very simple things before you opt for a program.

YOGA FOR ARTHRITIS

By Gaurang Chandarana | August 3rd, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

arthritis is preventable or manageable

Arthritis is no longer a problem associated with advancing age. It is now impacting people even in their 30s and 40s. However, arthritis is not really a disease. A majority of people with pathology of arthritis do not get any pain. Most of them also do not find their daily activities being impacted.

There is a small proportion of people who do get affected by it in a minor or major way. Many of them manage it well. Many are unable to manage or bear the pain and opt for surgery.

However, if one has mild symptoms of arthritis or is in the resolving phase, Yoga asanas can help. In many cases, the condition does not deteriorate at all.

about this program

-          Have one teaspoon of ghee (clarified butter from cow’s milk), daily, in your diet.

-          Make sure you walk through the day and are physically active.

-          Try and sit cross – legged with your feet up as much as you can.

-          Keep shifting your position and leg and knee movement whether you stand or sit.

the asanas

The following are the asanas to be done in a sequence in the given program. These are very useful even if you already have arthritis. You can choose to skip one or two if you have less time on a given day. You can practice this anytime during the day, but on an empty stomach.

1)       Seated Stretches, which is part of the body of Hatha Yoga Asanas known as Yogic Sukshma Vyayama. These are appropriate for all age groups and even those with multiple health problems. These can also be practiced by pregnant ladies.

YOGA FOR DIABETES

By Gaurang Chandarana | August 1st, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

Diabetes Background

Diabetes is fast set to become a major health problem with millions of people across the World who will get this problem. It was previously thought to be genetic in nature. This was especially thought to be true in USA, India, South Asia and some Mediterranean countries. But Diabetes is no longer restricted to those who have a genetic predisposition. It is now a full-fledged ‘lifestyle disease’ and can happen to anyone even if you do not have it in your genes. What this means is that even though one does not have a genetic tendency, you can easily get it if you do not take care of your health, lifestyle, exercise and eating habits. Diabetes was diagnosed and understood in ancient India and was known as ‘madhumeha’ in ancient Indian texts. It affected a relatively smaller proportion of the population. However, in today’s times, it has already impacted millions of people and millions more are at risk. It is estimated that over the next two or three decades, close to ten percent or more of the World’s population will have Diabetes.

Children are also no longer immune to this lifestyle disease. Now we have many children below the age of thirteen who get Type 2 Diabetes or lifestyle related diabetes. There are many babies born with diabetes which is non-genetic or non -Type A diabetes. This has now been linked to lifestyle causes of the mother. Since this is one of the major health challenges of our times, let us look at the causes of Diabetes

Causes of Diabetes

There is a misconception that diabetes is linked to your weight or obesity. Obesity is a trigger for diabetes. However, diabetes is not linked to your weight at all. Even thin people can and do get diabetes. Apart from genetics and weight gain, there are many reasons for diabetes. Some of them have been listed below:

  • Incorrect eating and sleeping habits and overeating. Eating or drinking the wrong things at the wrong times and eating a lot of quantity is a problem.
  • Lack of physical activity and exercise of some form. Most of our lives are sedentary which causes glucose imbalances in the blood.
  • Air pollution is now established as a major cause which can cause metabolic changes and cause diabetes. This is something we cannot do anything about but we can at least make sure we take care of the other causes and minimize the impact of pollution.
  • Pollutants and hormones in foods, especially in processed non-vegetarian foods and vegetables grown using chemicals. Most of the food across the World is only prepared with pesticides, hormones, chemicals and preservatives. This causes diabetes.
  • Combining certain food groups causes diabetes. A prime example is combining beef or red meat with dairy products, milk or yogurt. We also mix fruits with vegetables or have fruits with meals. This also can lead to diabetes.
  • Stress is a major game changer and can cause blood sugar imbalances. In fact, this is one of the main causes for glucose / insulin ratio imbalances leading to chronic and lifetime diabetes.
  • Alcohol even in moderation and substance abuse cause insulin imbalances. There are lobbies which ‘tom tom’ the benefits of alcohol. They conveniently forget that alcohol causes diabetes and damages the liver as well as the isle of Langerhans which produce insulin.

Why Worry About Diabetes

Diabetes by itself is not a disease in that sense. It is actually a symptom that the there is an imbalance created in the body. There is something which has gone wrong and we need to correct it. If we do not take action to change our lifestyles or eating habits, then a lot of other diseases can occur. Diabetes is the gateway to ill health. Therefore, controlling your sugar or correcting the Insulin – glucose imbalance is important. In fact, it has been found that people who become aware that they have diabetes, start improving their health and lifestyle. The problem is that at least half of all people who have diabetes (estimates) do not know that they have it, as they are not tested.

Diabetes Is Curable or Reversible

Till now the popular belief was that once you get diabetes, it remains with you forever. However, this is not the case. There are many interventions available in conjunction with your regular medications that help to correct or improve diabetes. Three of the most important interventions are changing food habits, Yoga and stress management.

In many cases, effective management of the condition ensures there is no deterioration of health at all and in fact, many diabetics are healthier than even non-diabetics. This is because they take corrective action and become more disciplined. A lot of diabetics do not get cardiac problems or cholesterol as they become aware earlier on and take good care of themselves.

Yoga and Diabetes Research

There has been a large amount of research done now on Yoga and its impact on Diabetes. There have been multiple studies done in India which show that most diabetics manage to reduce their blood sugar in just six months of regular practice. Most of them reduce blood sugar by half and more than a third reach normal sugar levels. The HBA1C tests become normal and urine sugar also goes down or disappears. This implies that severe diabetics are able to go off insulin or reduce their medication by half or more. Yoga also helps other co-morbid conditions like high blood pressure, stress and cholesterol. So if these also reduce or disappear, diabetes starts reducing or also gets totally reversed.

There has been a recent cohort study concluded by Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai with astounding results. Persons with borderline diabetes or pre-diabetics reverted to normal or did not deteriorate for as long as ten to fifteen years; without any medication! They were only taken through a Yoga program and had to practice it regularly. Some of them were just advised some herbs or meditation and none of them were given insulin. None of these patients developed heart or cholesterol problems. This clearly proves the efficacy of Yoga in prevention and reversal of diabetes.

All of this clearly underscores the importance of Yoga for Diabetes. There are many teachers who give different asanas and techniques which one can practice for diabetes. Each one of them claims that their practices are the best. However, there are two practices derived from the Upanishads and from traditional Hatha Yoga scriptures which provide astounding results for diabetes and all other cardio metabolic diseases also. Both of these techniques and be viewed and followed at the links given below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbZCPNiouHM&feature=youtu.be

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttqyOw9xgCk&feature=youtu.be

Of course you need to practice a proper Yoga for Diabetes program for a few months. If you like the videos above, then you may opt for the online yoga for diabetes program given on the link below, to take charge of your sugar levels.

WHY IS YOGA TAKING THE WORLD BY STORM?

The world over, Yoga is becoming extremely popular. The most apparent reasons why people practice yoga is to reduce weight or take care of some illnesses or other problems. Many individuals utilize it as a less strenuous form of exercise or a ‘feel good’ discipline. So the reasons range from weight loss to illnesses to alternate therapy to even some amount of laziness.

Yoga definitely helps in all of these, but the real benefits are hidden and in fact, are not highlighted enough. Apart from the physical and physiological benefits, let us look at some of the others.

BENEFITS OF YOGA

We shall leave aside the obvious physical benefits in this discussion like general good health, longevity, weight loss and managing chronic diseases. Let us focus on four of the other categories of benefits which are less spoken about:

YOGA FOR HEALTH-MYTHS ABOUT YOGA

By Gaurang Chandarana | June 11th, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

BACKGROUND

Everyone today acknowledges the benefits of practicing Yoga to remain healthy. However, there are a lot of individuals who get deterred or intimated thinking it is very difficult. International Yoga Day is now being celebrated each year on 21st June. This has been one of the greatest initiatives by our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. This has given a lot of attention and focus to Yoga which was long overdue.

YOGA MYTHS

In spite of so much of attention given to Yoga, there are a lot of misconceptions. Most of these stem from the fact there are pictures and videos of people doing very complex asanas, possibly more to show off and not because they are required. Also, we only see toned bodies and great looking clothes and equipments. Due to this, there are some myths around Yoga which prevent people from practicing it. Some of these Yoga myths are:

  • You need to be flexible.
  • It is better suited for younger people.
  • It is meant for only those people who have health problems.
  • Fat or obese individuals cannot practice equally well and get all its benefits.
  • One has to go to a crowded class and practice with others in a cramped situation.
  • One cannot practice at ones own pace and as per ones own convenience.
  • You need to buy mats and Yoga clothing to practice.
  • You cannot practice it at home.
  • You need a teacher to come over and pay lots of money to teach.
  • It cannot be done daily.
  • You have to do a lot of complex and convoluted asanas to get benefits.
  • The more difficult practices are better.
  • Householders cannot be serious about Yoga.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

All of the above are popular misconceptions or myths about Yoga. The very fact that these are myths means none of these are true. So how do we go about starting Yoga? One of the best ways to do so is by going to credible experts and learn online. There are so many gentle and simple practices you can do forever and get all the benefits you would have got from even the most complicated asanas.

Pick up gentle asanas which you can learn online for free and practice them at home for fifteen to twenty minutes on a daily basis. If you cant practice daily, then try practicing four times a week. Do not worry even about the time. Practice whenever you have the time, be it morning or evening. Just make sure, you are on an empty stomach.

SIMPLE ASANAS AND HEALTH

There is enough of a body of personal experiences of thousands of people as well as a growing body of scientific research which clearly states there is no need to practice for long hours, spend money or do complex asanas and pranayamas. Even the most simple practices give great benefits as the more complicated hatha yoga postures.

LETS GET YOU STARTED

To make things easy for you and get you started, just follow these basic asanas whenever you can on an empty stomach. Practice these for ninety days and see great benefits ‘kicking into’ your life. Once you are on your way, you may choose to pick some great programs from genuine and authentic Indian Yoga Classes.

YOGA TO CURE PCOS

By Gaurang Chandarana | March 17th, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

Background to pcos

PCOS is also known as PCOD and is rapidly becoming a fairly major health issue for an increasing number of women. There are different levels of severity and it is not too serious or fatal. The causes are not known as to why this occurs. However, there is an increasing body of research which is pointing to the fact that stress plays a major cause in triggering this condition.

Many a times, stress is deep rooted and not too obvious. So we may think we are not stressed. However, it has become part of our lives and we do not even realize it till it is too late.

causes of pcos

Apart from stress, there are other possible causes for PCOS which are not too clear.

One of the main cause of PCOS is our polluted food and drinks. Everything today has plastic, hormones, chemicals, preservatives and pesticides. This brings about changes in the body and one of the major manifestations is PCOS.

It is assumed that there could be a genetic link. However, this is fairly nebulous. But popular belief states that if your mother or sister has PCOS then you are more likely to get it.

One another reason for PCOS is hormonal imbalances especially an excess of androgen. Androgen is produced in small quantities in women but an excess could cause problems. Excess of androgen is linked to either excess insulin, an insulin / glucose imbalance or external intake of hormones to be found in food and drinks (without our knowledge as pointed out earlier).

Since this is a women centric condition (it would be incorrect to call it a disease), very little of it is spoken about openly. This itself causes a lot of myths and misconceptions and many a times, women are not even aware of the symptoms.

misuse of pcos

Even though PCOS is becoming a health challenge, there is a lot of misuse of this condition by women themselves. Most women do not even get tested, read the symptoms online and justify their health or behavior saying it is PCOS. It avoids a lot of difficult conversations and personal effort especially if you have mood swings, are irritable or putting on weight. This is also now a leading excuse even when there is no PCOS or any other problem. In short, it is a nice and effective argument winner or conversation stopper.

symptoms of pcos

PCOS has certain symptoms. However, it is not essential to have all the symptoms. There could be one or more and in varying degrees only. However, if there are any prolonged symptoms, it is important to see a doctor. Some of the key symptoms are:

-          Periods becoming irregular and in extreme cases periods do not occur at all

-          There is some difficulty in conceiving and getting pregnant due to ovulation failure

-          There may or may not be excessive or sudden increased hair growth on different parts of the body

-          Weight gain is one of the most prominent features of PCOS

-          Hair loss or thinning of hair could be a problem. However, this is difficult to figure out as hair loss has so many other causes.

-          Increase in the oiliness of complexion and regular acne or pimples if you have crossed your teens and twenties.

treatment of pcos

The best possible treatment for PCOS has been found to be exercise, diet, lifestyle changes and stress management. However, if the degree is more severe or prolonged, a doctor may recommend different types of medicines. Some help regulate insulin or blood sugar. Some help to reduce androgen and yet others promote periods or ovulation.

In extreme but rare cases, surgery may be recommended to puncture a part of the ovary and send through an electric current. This destroys a small part of the affected part to promote ovulation, periods and reduce excess production of male hormones. However, this is a short term approach and advised for women who want to conceive.

We shall look at the first option for PCOS which is actually about regulating your lifestyle. Specifically, we shall be talking about the role of Yoga in managing or reversing PCOS.

benefits of yoga in pcos

Yoga brings about many benefits in PCOS. Some of the proven and important ones are:

-          Dramatic reduction in stress levels

-          Reduction in blood sugar levels

-          Normalization of the insulin/sugar levels (known as I/G Level)

-          Stimulating the adrenal glands and getting them to function properly

-          Regulation of hormones and correct production in required quantities

-          Removing co-morbid conditions like cholesterol and high blood pressure

-          Regulation of the thyroid and thyroid function which helps reduce weight

-          Lowering of body fat levels to normal and natural levels

All of this leads us to some great benefits and PCOS can be managed with minor medication and also eradicate it totally over a period of time.

Having seen the benefits of yoga for PCOS and curing it, it is important to start practicing something. To get you started with a few minutes a day, view and follow the links below for free for a month.

INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY

By Gaurang Chandarana | March 6th, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

Background for Woman’s Day

The World over and for many centuries, women have had to bear the brunt of a large part of all problems. There are multiple roles women play and have always shouldered much more responsibility than men. There are also some physiological differences and more importantly; physical, social and mental problems let loose on them by a primarily patriarchal and male dominated society. Given a lot of these challenges, women still play the leading role in maintaining societies and families. In fact, contrary to popular belief, most women in South Asian Countries and Africa do more physical work and are the sole bread earners for the family. There are many parts of India, where the men just while away their time and women actually run the house.

Problems Faced By Women

Due to a lot of these historical and warped religious reasons and beliefs, women actually face a lot of problems. Some of them are:

  1. Earning a living and managing a house
  2. Rearing and raising children
  3. Managing family security
  4. They bear the brunt of violence, wars and diseases
  5. Rapes, torture and more
  6. Female infanticide
  7. Genital mutilations
  8. Various other social pressures
  9. Keeping women uneducated
  10. Physical ailments which men do not get like PCOS or PCOD, menstrual problems, sex related incontinence, weight loss or weight gain problems, metabolic changes, menopause and more.
  11. Most of these lead to a lot of stress in women and cause diseases like breast cancer, cardiac problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, orthopedic problems and much more.

It is therefore, important to take care of all women in all age groups if we are to have a healthy society which is mentally and physically secure, free and strong. Towards this end, there are a lot of people who are working and contributing.

However, the onus is on women themselves to take care of their health and well being more than anyone else. There are just three steps to this. If we take care of these, then most of the problems get taken care of. The three steps are as follows:

Diet And Nutrition

Diet and nutrition is not about diet plans and weight loss programs. It is about eating healthy and balanced meals at all times such that you get all the essential nutrients. The nutrient requirements are slightly different for young, growing women, women in child bearing age and for women after menopause. Nutrition also helps to prevent and manage breast cancer and other serious problems.

To find out the best balance diet plans for women, you will require some online diet consultation or plans. Opt for them from wellzee.

Stress Management

Stress management is the core area for all women today. If you manage stress well then everything gets taken care of. You will find the best stress management technique on the youtube link given below. In case you want a complete stress management program, then you can get one on this link.

Exercise And Yoga

The third most important aspect for women’s health and well being is to be physically active and fit. Physically active does not necessarily mean a lot of exercise at a gymnasium or strength training. There are many ways to remain active and fit. This can be done in any one of the following ways:

  • Walking
  • Doing all the housework and cooking
  • Some form of moderate exercise
  • Simple Hatha Yoga Asanas for fitness and weight loss.

Check out the link below for a quick and simple online yoga asana program without any payment.

In case you need a proper extended online yoga program and guidance then feel free to write to us or take one of our yoga programs for women.

YOGA FOR DIABETES AWARENESS DAY

By Gaurang Chandarana | March 3rd, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

Diabetes Background

The World over, Diabetes is becoming a major challenge. This is especially true in USA, India, South Asia and some Mediterranean countries. Diabetes is no longer restricted to those who have a genetic predisposition. It is now a full fledged ‘lifestyle disease’ and can happen to anyone even if you do not have it in your genes. Given the upcoming American Diabetes Awareness Day, it is important to know the causes for Diabetes, which has also been known as ‘madhumeha’ in ancient Indian texts.

Causes For Diabetes

Diabetes is not linked to your weight at all. Even thin people can get diabetes. Apart from genetics, there are many reasons for Diabetes. Some of them have been listed below:

  • Incorrect eating and sleeping habits and overeating.
  • Lack of physical activity and exercise of some form.
  • Air pollution is now established as a major cause which can cause metabolic changes and cause diabetes.
  • Pollutants and hormones in foods, especially in processed non-vegetarian foods and vegetables grown using chemicals.
  • Combining certain food groups causes diabetes. A prime example is combining beef or red meat with diary products, milk or yogurt.
  • Stress is a major game changer and can cause blood sugar imbalances.
  • Alcohol even in moderation and substance abuse cause insulin imbalances.

Why Worry About Diabetes

Diabetes by itself is not a disease in that sense. It is actually a symptom that the there is an imbalance created in the body. There is something which has gone wrong and we need to correct it. If we do not take action to change our lifestyles or eating habits, then a lot of other diseases can occur. Diabetes is the gateway to ill health. Therefore, controlling your sugar or correcting the Insulin – glucose imbalance is important.

Diabetes Is Curable Or Reversible

Till now the popular belief was that once you get diabetes, it remains with you forever. However, this is not the case. There are many interventions available in conjunction with your regular medications that help to correct or improve diabetes. A lot of these are alternate therapies like naturopathy. Ayurveda also has a lot of good medicines for diabetes. One of the best ones is methi seeds, also known as fenugreek seeds. Eating these in various forms helps bring blood sugar in control.

In many cases, effective management of the condition ensures there is no deterioration of health at all and in fact, many diabetics are more healthy than even non-diabetics. This is because they take corrective action and become more disciplined. It has been therefore seen that diabetics who take charge of their health live longer and more healthy and also do not get any cardiac problems. 

Yoga And Diabetes Research

There has been a large amount of research done now on Yoga and its impact on Diabetes. There have been multiple studies done in India which show that most diabetics manage to reduce their blood sugar in just six months of regular practice. Most of them reduce their blood sugar by half and more than a third reach normal sugar levels. Many of them are able to reduce insulin in case of type 2 diabetes and many of them go off insulin, totally. Some are then only able to manage with a tablet a day. 

There has been a recent cohort study concluded by Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai with astounding results. Persons with borderline diabetes or pre-diabetics reverted to normal or did not deteriorate for as long as ten to fifteen years; without any medication! They were only taken through a Yoga program and had to practice it regularly. Regular practice means at least four to five times a day for a minimum of six months to a year in a row.

Centre for Sight :Raising awareness against Cataract; Major Reason of Blindness in Adults

New Delhi ,December 2015:Imagine a morning when you wake up and can hear the chirping of the birds but can’t see them. Imagine a life where there is no autonomy and you need help and guidance at every juncture. Imagine a life in which you cannot experience the beauty around you, you cannot see how the world looks. The mere thought of losing the gift of sight shakes our innards and helpless. A person’s eyesight is not just another sensory phenomenon, but one of the most important and coveted one. Blindness is at times congenital and at others due to some disorders. The former is not in our hands, but the latter most certainly is. By just creating wakefulness and making people aware of the eye diseases that can estrange us from the gift of vision, we can make a huge difference.

Cataracts are one of the leading causes of vision loss in Indians and also a principle cause of blindness in the world. As a matter of fact, there are more cases of cataracts worldwide than there are of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy combined. This clouding of the natural lens of the eye is most prominently because of ageing, but other factors such as diabetes, obesity, injuries, heredity are also guilty of causing cataracts.

At first, symptoms like blurry vision, fading of colors go unnoticed at times, but with a gradual increase in time these symptoms can cause umpteen limitations in the daily activities of the individual and can cause permanent blindness.

Although it is possible to lower your risk of developing cataracts, it is not 100% preventable. Comprehensive eye examination in every two to four years by middle-aged people and in every one to two years by people who are 65 and older is recommended to catch the problem in early stages and have easier treatments. On a personal level, you can stir some minds by engaging family and friends to attend cataract screenings, donate and join campaigns, issue flyers, posters about cataract and promote cataract awareness.
