Dr. Dinesh Kacha Diabetes Reversal Through Ayurvedic Lifestyle
For more than 32 years, Dr. Dinesh Kacha has led the health care industry with innovative products and discoveries. Known as the 'Follower of Ayurveda , Dr. Dinesh Kacha compiles traditional blend of ancient wisdom with modern-day Science to develop research based formulations for patients across generations and geographies with his deep-rooted philosophy of creating perfect health for everybody.

Dr. Dinesh Kacha addresses the root cause of insulin resistance and lack of insulin, reversing diabetes through ayurvedic lifestyle & fixing the metabolic damage  that will not just prevent the disease but also reverse it as his researches believes that focus on lifestyle through the approach of Aahar Vihar Ausadh  based on ayurvedic principles and processes will help the management of disease.

The underlying cause of diabetes varies by type. But, no matter what type of diabetes you have, it can lead to excess sugar in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can lead to serious health problems. To understand diabetes, first you must understand how glucose is normally processed in the body.
Glucose comes from two major sources: food and your liver.

Sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, where it enters cells with the help of insulin.
Your liver stores and makes glucose.
When your glucose levels are low, such as when you haven’t eaten in a while, the liver breaks down stored glycogen into glucose to keep your glucose level within a normal range.

Metabolic damage occurs when our body’s metabolism (essentially how our bodies utilize energy) has adjusted into “survival mode” from periods of intense restriction, exercise, and/or stress. It’s actually better described as ‘metabolic acclimation’ because it has acclimated or gotten used to the new ‘norm’ of energy utilization it is experiencing.

Research suggests that people who are obese are up to 80 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who are not. In obese persons, cells of fat tissues have to process more nutrients than they can manage. The stress in these cells triggers an inflammation that releases a protein known as cytokines.

Studies suggest that abnormal fat causes fat cells to release
‘pro-inflammatory’ chemicals, which can make the body less sensitive to the insulin it produces by disrupting the function of insulin responsive cells and their ability to respond to insulin.
Diabetes cases in the world have increased due to drastic change in lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits and high stress levels. People with diabetes are 2 to 4 times more likely to suffer from heart disease or a stroke as compared to those who do not have diabetes. Diabetes is a condition that hinders your body's ability to respond to insulin that eventually leads to abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, leading to spiked blood sugar levels
Ayurveda can control diabetes. Since the disease is an acquired lifestyle disorder, Ayurveda can trigger the remission process. The focus must be to reduce the dependency on medication (Ayurveda/Allopathy) and to adapt to a newer, improved lifestyle. Efforts must be made to improve your diet, daily routines, yoga or exercise schedule, and stress management techniques.

Diabetes Overview
This blog is about the diabetes overview, which is under the category of diabetes care. Diabetes Reversal without medication; Affordable & complete diabetes treatment in Kochi; Consult dr.James Sebastian is the best diabetologist in kalamassery, Kochi

Diabetes mellitus refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose). Glucose is vital to your health because it’s an important source of energy for the cells that make up your muscles and tissues. It’s also your brain’s main source of fuel. Diabetes is a common disease, but everyone needs individual diabetes care. The underlying cause of diabetes varies by type. But, no matter what type of diabetes you have, it can lead to excess sugar in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can lead to serious health problems. Chronic diabetes conditions include type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Potentially reversible diabetes conditions include prediabetes and gestational diabetes. Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. And prediabetes is often the precursor of diabetes unless appropriate measures are taken to prevent progression. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy but may resolve after the baby is delivered. Careful diabetes care will reduce the risk of life-threatening complications and make our lifestyle better for a healthy life.

BONE HEALTH
ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT YOUR BONE HEALTH
Lack of calcium and vitamin D are generally considered the cause of weak bone health and osteoporosis but POOR NUTRITION and lack of daily PHYSICAL EXERCISE also contributes to bone health.
Certain foods like calcium, vitamin d, and protein are good for your bones, but certain foods are better to avoid because they can enhance the bone calcium loss
A. Eat less SALT
Too much of salt (in form of processed foods, packaged foods) is harmful for skeleton as it leads to calcium loss
B. CARBONATED drinks-
Contains Phosphoric acid which increases the drain of calcium from bones.
C. Over dose of CAFFEINE -
Excess caffeine reduces the absorption of calcium from gut
D. Make a distance from SUGAR-
Excess sugar interferes with calcium absorption and drains phosphorus and other essential minerals that help in calcium absorption
E. Restrict ALCOHOL-
Too much alcohol reduces bone density and increases calcium excretion from body.
Even if you take alcohol occasionally, avoid mixing it with carbonated drinks

OBESITY : HOW TO CONTROL WEIGHT AND STAY FIT
मित्रों आज मैं W.H.O. की रिपोर्ट देख रहा था जिसमें मोटापे के बारे में बहुत कुछ बताया गया था. तो सोचा कि आज इसी विषय पर आपसे चर्चा करी जाए और अपने विचार और अनुभवों को बांटा जाए.

मेरे पास अनेक ऐसे रोगी आते हैं जो मोटापे से परेशान हैं और इसके बारे में ज़्यादा से ज़्यादा जानना चाहते हैं और इससे मुक्ति पाना चाहते हैं. तो उनके जो जो प्रश्न होते हैं और इस दौरान जो चर्चा होती है वह आपकी जानकारी के लिए दी जा रही है.

1. मोटापा क्या है-

 मोटापा सम्पूर्ण विश्व में तेज़ी से फैलती हुई एक ऐसी समस्या है जिसे हर देश में एक न एक परिवार या उसका कोई एक सदस्य पीड़ित है. आंकड़े बताते हैं कि वर्ष 2008 में दुनिया के 9.8 प्रतिशत पुरुष और 13.8 प्रतिशत महिलाएँ मोटापे का शिकार थीं. दुनिया में मोटापे का संबंध आय से रहा है और अधिक आय वाले देशों में मोटापा अधिक बढ़ा है।

 वास्तव में देखा जाए तो यह एक बीमारी ही नहीं बल्कि हमारे शरीर द्वारा आधुनिकीकरण के कारण भाग दौड़ वाले जीवन में अनाप शनाप खाने के प्रति एक ऐसा सिग्नल दिया जाता है जिसे अगर सही समय पर कंट्रोल नहीं किया जाए तो यह किसी न किसी रूप में भयंकर बीमारियों में परिवर्तित हो सकता है. मोटापे के कारण ही पूरे विश्व में उच्च रक्तचाप यानी हाई बी.पी. , हार्ट की बीमारियों के कारण ऊंची मृत्यु दर हो गयी है.

2. मोटापे का क्या कारण होता है ?

 मोटापे का मुख्य कारण तो हम सभी जानते हैं और वो हैं अधिक खाना. इसके अलावा अगर भोजन की ली गयी मात्रा के अनुसार श्रम नहीं किया जाए तो भी एक्स्ट्रा चर्बी शरीर में इकठ्ठा होने लगती है और शरीर बेडौल हो जाता है.

 लेकिन आपको ये जानकार आश्चर्य होगा कि केवल अधिक खाना ही इसका एकमात्र कारण नहीं है.

 मोटापे के कई आंतरिक कारण भी होते हैं जैसे- शरीर की कार्यप्रणाली में असंतुलन, तंत्रिका तंत्र के कुछ विकार, हारमोनों के घटने या बढ़ने की अवस्था. कभी कभी ये भी देखने में आता है कि किसी किसी परिवार में नहीं यह समस्या पीढ़ी दर पीढ़ी चली आ रही होती है.

 वैज्ञानिकों ने पता लगा है कि ऐसा कुछ आनुवांशिक कारणों से भी होता है. अगर माता पिता में से कोई भी मोटापे से ग्रसित नहीं है तो अगली पीढ़ी में इसके होने की संभावना सिर्फ ७% होती है. वहीँ दूसरी और अगर माता पिता में से कोई एक मोटापे से पीड़ित है तो यह संभावना ४० % तक बढ़ जाती है और अगर माता पिता दोनों ही मोटे हैं तो यह संभावना ८०% तक हो जाती है.

3. मोटापे में शरीर के अन्दर क्या परिवर्तन होता है ?

 हाल में हुई रिसर्च से पता चला है कि शरीर में sympathetic नर्वस सिस्टम की क्रियाहीनता से चर्बी की मात्रा बढ़ने लगती है. हमारे शरीर में parasympathetic नर्वस सिस्टम नामक तंत्रिका तंत्र की एक प्रणाली होती है जो शरीर में ऊर्जा के इकठ्ठा होने और उसके खर्च होने पर कण्ट्रोल करता है.

 अगर इसके अंदर कोई गडबडी हो जाए तो शरीर में ऊर्जा का ज्यादा स्टोर होने लगता है और हम ज़्यादा खाने लगते हैं जिससे कुछ ही दिनों में भयंकर मोटापा हो जाता है.

4. अपने शरीर को छरहरा कैसे बनाये रखा जाए ?

शरीर को छरहरा बनाने के ७ तरीके-
१- पूरे दिन भर में मैंने क्या खाया ये लिखें
२- शरीर की ज़रूरत के अनुसार ही खाना खाएं. खाना खाते समय इस बात काध्यान रखें कि पेट पूरी तरह ना भर जाए बल्कि उसमें १०-२०% जगह बची हो.
३- फास्ट फ़ूड जैसे- चाउमीन ,बर्गर , पिज़्ज़ा, हॉट डॉग आदि के सेवन से बचें.
४- खाने के समय खाना छोटे बर्तनों में लेने की आदत डालें.
५- खाने को धीरे धीरे चबा कर खाए. ऐसा माना जाता है कि खाने के हर कौरे को अगर २० बार चबाया जाए तो उसके तत्वों का पूरा फायदा आपको मिल जाता है ; या यों कहिये कि अगर हर कौर को २० बार चबाया जाए तो वह पूरी तरह से आपके मुहं में घुल जाता है.
६- खाने का एक निश्चित समय रखें
७- प्रतिदिन कम से कम ४-५ किलोमीटर तेज़ी से चलने का अभ्यास बनाए रखें.

5. क्या इसका कोई प्राकृतिक इलाज़ भी है ?

जी हाँ अगर आप दवा नहीं खाना चाहते हैं तो आप ये करें-
 रिंग फिंगर( अनामिका अंगुली) को मोडकर उसके ऊपरी नाखून वाले भाग को अंगूठे के जड पर प्रेशर डालें और अंगूठा मोडकर अनामिका पर दबाव -हल्का बनाये रखें और बाकी अंगुलियों को अपने सीध में रखें। इस तरह जो मुद्रा बनती है उसे सूर्य मुद्रा कहते हैं। यह मुद्रा शारीरिक मोटापा घटाने में बहुत सहायक होता है। जो लोग मोटापे से परेशान हैं, इस मुद्रा का प्रयोग कर असर देख सकते हैं। मैंने कई मरीजों को ये बताया है और इससे उन्हें फायदा हुआ है.

6. मोटापा कम करने के लिए क्या क्या खाएं-

 भोजन में गेहूं के आटे की चपाती लेना बन्द करके जौ-चने के आटे की रोटी लेना शुरू कर दें। इसका अनुपात है 10 किलो चना व 2 किलो जौ।
 भोजन मे ज्यादा रेशे वाले पदार्थ शामिल करें। हरी सब्जियों ,फलों में अधिक रेशा होता है।
 पत्ता गोभी में चर्बी घटाने के गुण होते हैं। इससे शरीर का मेटाबोलिज्म ताकतवर बनता है।
 चाय में पोदिना डालकर पीने से मोटापा कम होता है।
 रोजाना कच्चा टमाटर, नमक और प्याज साथ खाने से मोटापा कम होने लगता है।

7. क्या कोई आयुर्वेदिक औषधि भी है-

बिलकुल हैं ! प्राचीन काल से ही बहुत सी अनमोल औषधियां थीं जिन्‍हें नित्‍य प्रयोग मे लाकर शरीर को सुडौल व छरहरा बनाये रखा जाता था. आप भी इनका ध्यान से सेवन करें-

 पिपली का चूर्ण दो बार शहद में मिलाकर सेवन करने से मोटापा कम होता है पिपली सेवन के एक घंटे बाद तक कुछ न सेवन करें तो ज्यादा अच्छा है |

 १ चम्मच शहद आधा चम्मच नींबू का रस गरम जल में मिलाकर लेते रहने से शरीर की अतिरिक्त चर्बी नष्ट होती है। यह दिन में 3 बार लेना चाहिए।

 पुदीना रस एक चम्मच 2 चम्मच शहद में मिलाकर लेते रहने से मोटापा कम होता है।

 मोटापा घटाने के लिए सात दिन में एक दिन व्रत जरुर रखें और सिर्फ फलों का ही सेवन करें।

8. क्या कोई रिसर्च भी ऐसी घरेलू चीजों पर हुई है

 हाँ; ब्रिटेन में हुए एक शोध में सिद्ध हो गया है कि लाल मिर्च शरीर में व्याप्त अवांछित कैलोरी जलाने एवं मोटापा घटाने में मददगार साबित हो सकता है।

9. क्या कोई आसन भी है जिससे मैं अपना मोटापा कम कर सकूँ-

बिलकुल है ; आप सुबह उठकर शौच से निवृत्त होने के बाद निम्नलिखित आसनों का अभ्यास करें

 भुजंगासन, शलभासन, उत्तानपादासन, सर्वागासऩ, हलासन, सूर्य नमस्कार। इनमें शुरू के पाँच आसनों में 2-2 मिनट और सूर्य नमस्कार पांच बार करें तो पांच मिनट यानी कुल 15 मिनट लगेंगे।

तो मित्रों अगर आप या आपका कोई परिचित मोटापे से परेशान है तो इन उपायों से लाभ उठा सकते हैं. इन सभी उपायों से सैकड़ों रोगियों ने लाभ उठा कर हमें बताया है !!

और अगर आपके पास भी कोई ऐसा उपाय है तो उसे बताएं जिससे ज़्यादा से ज्यादा लोगों तक पहुंचाया जा सके.

सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ॥

धन्यवाद !!!!

आपका अपना,
डॉ.स्वास्तिक

how to get beautiful n glowing skin
HOW TO GET BEAUTIFUL AND GLOWING SKIN
How Water Benefits Your Skin

Few things are as good as water for keeping your skin in shape.

Water keeps skin hydrated, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps cells take up nutrients and purge toxins. And water improves circulation and blood flow, keeping your skin glowing.

Selenium for Your Skin

Selenium is a trace mineral that may help protect skin cells from free radical damage. It may also play a role in skin cancer prevention.

Excellent sources of selenium include Brazil nuts, button mushrooms and whole-wheat pasta

CoQ10: Coenzyme Q10

CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant made naturally in your body. However, its production decreases with aging. CoQ10 protects skin and other body cells from the damage caused by free radicals. It's also involved in energy production and basic functioning of cells. Low levels of this antioxidant are found in many age-related illnesses. When used topically, it is reported to improve the appearance of wrinkles and the signs of aging.
Rich sources of CoQ10 include fish (such as salmon and tuna), poultry, organ meats (such as liver), and whole grains.

Antioxidants for Healthy Cells

Antioxidants prevent or slow the damage done to cells by free radicals. This damage contributes to signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dry skin.
Antioxidants can be found in all kinds of foods, especially colorful fruits and vegetables such as berries, tomatoes, apricots, beets, squash, spinach, sweet potato, tangerines, peppers, and beans

Vitamin A for Skin Repair

Want to steer clear of dry, flaky skin? Grab an orange, a carrot,and papaya. These fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamin A. Applying vitamin A to the skin appears to improve signs of aging, such as wrinkles. Topical and oral forms of vitamin A are common prescription treatments for acne and other skin conditions, including wrinkles. Other sources of vitamin A include leafy greens, eggs, and low-fat dairy

Vitamin C: Power Over the sun

Vitamin C helps protect skin from the sun. It also helps undo damage done by free radicals, which destroy skin-firming fibers such as collagen and elastin.

Excellent sources of vitamin C include red bell peppers,guava, indian gooseberry(amla) citrus fruits, papaya, kiwi, broccoli, greens, and brussels sprouts.

Vitamin E is another antioxidant that may help shield your skin from damage done by the sun. Vitamin E is also an anti-inflammatory and immunity enhancer.

Vitamin E is found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, olives, spinach, asparagus, olives, and leafy greens in small amounts.

Essential Fatty Acids for Your Skin

Essential fatty acids such as omega-3s and omega-6s help produce your skin's natural oil barrier, keeping dry skin and blemishes at bay. EFAs are necessary fats that help leave skin smoother and younger-looking.

Good sources of essential fatty acids include olive and canola oils, flax, walnuts, and coldwater fish such as salmon, sardines, and mackerel

Healthy Oils for Healthy Skin

Some oils pack more than essential fatty acids. Good-quality oils like extra virgin olive oil and cold- or expeller-pressed oil are more simply processed than many commercial oils, and so they may help retain more skin-boosting nutrients.
These oils may also help lubricate skin and keep it looking and feeling healthy

Green Tea: Antioxidant Powerhouse

Green tea may be the closest thing to a magic elixir that nature can offer for your skin. Green tea helps to stop inflammation, slow DNA damage, and can help prevent the sun from burning your skin.
