For A Healthier you...
Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy. People who are moderately active live longer and feel better. Exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight, delay or prevent diabetes, some cancers and heart problems. For those with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, regular exercise with a controlled diet enables steady glucose levels which reduces the need for increasing insulin dependency.
 
Most adults need at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five days per week. Examples include walking briskly, mowing the lawn, dancing, swimming for recreation or bicycling. Stretching and weight training can strengthen your body and improve your fitness level.
 
The key is to find the right exercise for you. If you enjoy it you are more likely to stay motivated. But start slowly and always get permission from your doctor if you have an underlying disorder or are recovering from surgery.
 
 
5 Good Health Tips
  1. A Good Breakfast - Start your day these three healthy words. Breakfast fills your "empty tank" to get you going after a long night without food. And it can help you do better in school. Whether it’s cold cereal with fruit and low-fat milk, or whole-wheat toast with fruit jelly, yogurt with fruit, idli sambhar, or even last night's vegetable with two rotis!
  2. Snack smart Snacks are a great way to refuel. Choose snacks from different food groups - a glass of low-fat milk and a few graham crackers, an apple or low-fat yogurt and raisins, or some dry cereal. Eat smart at other meals - cookies, chips and candy are OK for rare snacking and then too always watch your portion.
  3. Balance your food choices – Have you heard the phrase – Too much of a good thing! Well! Its true. You don't have to give up favorite foods like pizzas, French fries and ice cream to eat healthy. You just have to be smart about how often and how much of them you eat. A home made pizza with fresh tomatoes and vegetables and low fat cheese is great, baked fries, or ice cream in moderation is always a good option. Your body needs nutrients like protein, carbohydrates, fat and many different vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C and A, iron and calcium from a variety of foods. Balancing food choices so you get the right proportions as indicated in USDA the Food Guide Pyramid and checking out the Nutrition Facts Panel on food items you buy will help you get all the nutrition your body needs.
  4. Eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables. These foods give you carbohydrates for energy, plus vitamins, minerals and fiber for a well functioning body. Try breads such as whole-wheat, bajra and methi rotis. Bananas, strawberries, blueberries and melons are amazing options. When enjoying vegetables go for freshly washed salads or on a sandwich or lightly steamed.
  5. Move It! It's easy to plan physical activities into your daily routine, at work and at home – just keep active. Walk, bike or jog to meet friends. Take a 10- minute activity break every hour while you read in the evenings, or do homework. Avoid watching TV for extended periods. Climb stairs at work instead of taking an elevator. All you need are 30 minutes every day, perhaps even broken up into 3 intense 10-minute sessions.
These good health tips are simple not just in language but simple to follow. Work them into your daily schedule and reap the benefits of having more energy and a healthier body.

Alzheimer's Disease Treatment
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, which is the loss of intellectual and social abilities severe enough to interfere with daily functioning. Dementia occurs in people with Alzheimer's disease because healthy brain tissue degenerates, causing a steady decline in memory and mental abilities.

Anemia
If you have anemia, people may say you have tired blood. That's because anemia - a condition in which there aren't enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues - can make you feel tired.
