If your idea of maintaining your health is through meeting a doctor once or twice a year, you’re being complacent. You live in your body every second of every day so you are the best judge for your health, provided you know the signs to look for. Here are some helpful tips to monitor your health on a regular basis.
1. Think PERF every evening:
There are four things you need to monitor every day that can tell you a lot about your health. They are the fruits and vegetables that you ate in a day (Produce), whether you walked and exercised (Exercise), whether you got at least 15 minutes of you-time with plenty of laughter and relaxation (Relaxation) and finally whether you got enough veggies and beans (Fibre). If you can say you did a healthy dose of all of this, then you can say you’ve lived a healthy day.
2. Check Your hairbrush:
Check your hairbrush and see if hair is falling out. If so ask your doctor to check your blood ferritin which is an indication of how chmu iron is present in your body. Studies suggest that low levels of iron may be related to hair loss and thyroid disease could also be another cause.
3. Keep track of your urine colour:
The colour of your urine can tell you a lot about your fluid intake. Ideally, your urine should be a clear, straw colour. If it has a dark colour with a strong smell, it means you are not getting enough water and fluids. If it is still dark after taking a lot of fluids, it is a good idea to follow up with a doctor.
4. People with diabetes, check your feet:
People with diabetes usually have slight nerve damage in their extremities like their feet so it is a good idea to idea to examine your feet for blisters, fungus, peeling skin, cuts and bruises. These daily self-examinations are critical clues to monitor your blood sugar level and are a simple check to see if you have nerve damage.
5. Measure your height every year after 50:
Skeletal health and posture become important after 50, especially for women. A change in your posture can be extremely informative about your bone density and assessing your overall bone health. But don’t skip bone density tests as they will tell you much more about your health.
Many know of wine as a high-class drink. But not many people know about the health benefits that wine provides when had in small quantities. The health benefits are mainly due to the antioxidants present in the drink. These antioxidants prevent cancer and neutralise the free radicals that are present in our body while also improving eyesight. In this article, we’ll go through some of the health benefits that drinking wine in moderation offers.
1. Sleep Patterns
When you drink a glass of wine before bed, you become sleepier and have the chances of bettering your sleep pattern. Melatonin, a hormone that aids in your rest cycle, is present in wine.
There is a powerful antioxidant present in wine called resveratrol which reduces the chance of heart diseases. Drinking red wine helps reduce the amount of bad LDL cholesterol while also retaining HDL, cholesterol which is good for the heart.
3. Prostate cancer prevention
A Harvard University study has shown that wine helps in fighting prostate cancer cells.
4. Lung cancer prevention
A study conducted by the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain concluded that wine helps reduce the chances of getting lung cancer. A glass of red wine everyday decreases the chances of getting lung cancer by nearly 13%.
5. Prevention of Type 2 diabetes
Wine, when consumed in moderation, helps reduce the risk of getting type 2 diabetes by nearly 30% due to the resveratrol content in it which is known to improve insulin sensitivity.
6. Immunity boosting properties
If you are someone who doesn’t get the daily recommend dose of vitamins, drinking a glass of wine every day can help you boost your immunity system. It also aids in keeping infections at bay. But drinking excessive wine can have the exact opposite effect.
7. Bone density
As the human body ages, the bone density is lessened which leads to our bones being brittle. Red wine has high silicon levels that help in increasing the bone mineral density. This helps in reducing the chances of osteoporosis.
8. Reduced chances of stroke
Red wine or alcohol, in general, helps in the prevention of blood clotting since it acts as a blood thinner. Phenol, which is present in red wine, works just like aspirin, which serves as a blood thinner. The resveratrol content in red wine is mostly responsible for this.
9. Cognitive functions
Drinking a glass of red wine every day is good for the brain as it has been proven to improve brain function.
10. Anti-ageing properties
The resveratrol content in wine helps in keeping your lungs and your heart healthy by reducing the amount of plaque build-up in the coronary arteries.
