Why DO I Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. The development of cataract is also associated with a positive family history (if a family or relative has cataract before), an unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be easily irritated, and can lead to decrease in visual acuity, with blurry and double vision.

Eye Exercise

A four-step eye exercise can relieve tired eyes after long hours of working in front of the computer screen. Do it daily, particularly in between breaks from the computer. Step 1: Close your eyes tightly for 3- 5 seconds and open them for 3-5 seconds. Repeat 7-8 times. Step 2: Close your eyes again and massage in circular movements for 1-2 minutes. Step 3: Press three fingers against upper eyelids, hold for 1-2 seconds then release. Repeat 5 times. Step 4: Roll your eyes clockwise, then counter-clockwise, and then blink once. Repeat 5 times.

DHA For Eye And Brain Health

Do you know that hyperactivity disorders in children, cognitive decline in the elderly, poor memory and depression are associated with DHA Omega 3 deficiencies? Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a valuable nutrient that is found abundantly in the brain and retina that support brain development, maintains optimal brain function and preserves eye health. However, DHA is also an essential fatty acid that cannot be produced by the body, hence it is necessary to take DHA supplement or take foods high in DHA content.

DHA For Brain Development

During the last trimester of pregnancy and first two years of life, the brain undergoes rapid growth. At this stage, the brain requires sufficient nutrients especially DHA for the development of sensory, perceptual, cognitive, and motor skills. Fetuses and infants receive DHA from their mothers through the placenta and breast milk. Mothers should ensure sufficient DHA level through DHA-rich fishes that are free from heavy metals and pollutants, and high DHA supplements. Infant fed with formula milk should ingest milk that has DHA oil added to it to aid brain development.

Why Should You Use Dental Floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, plaque is removed from the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or have big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for a more effective cleansing effect.

An Apple A Day, Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Do you know that chewing on an apple helps to scrub your teeth?  Apples have a high concentration of Malic acid which helps to increase the flow of saliva. This in turn cleans your teeth and removes stains. Apples are also rich in fiber, Vitamins B and C, Potassium, Calcium and Zinc which are vital to maintain general health.

Does Regular Trimming Promote Hair Growth?

Having a haircut has no effect on the rate of hair growth. Whether you get a hair trim or not, hair grows at the rate of one inch per month. The only proven factors that affect the rate of hair growth are genetics, hormones, and diet. However, it is important to note that the chopping of the split ends (which impede healthy hair growth) may promote better hair growth. Still the best way to promote healthy hair growth is to reduce the likelihood of split ends by avoiding over-styling. 

The Importance Of SLS-Free Shampoo!

Check your shampoo labels and look for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) – a common foaming agent that present in 90% of commercially available shampoos. SLS is able to permeate the skin effectively and concentrate in some organs such as eyes, brain and heart. SLS washes away the hair's moisture and may lead to the premature shedding of hair, clogging hair follicles and hair loss. Therefore, it is important to avoid products containing SLS. Instead seek natural alternatives! AFC Shokaigan Shampoo do not contain SLS but incorporates a natural blend of 10 amino acids to gently but deeply cleanse, unclog hair follicles and regulate scalp pH levels.

Solution To Leukorrhea

Leukorrhea is a thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge which is caused by inflammation and infection around the vaginal areas as well as the usage of vaginal deodorants. Power up your own immune defence system through the intake of probiotics which may help to inhibit the growth of yeast and other microbes that can possibly lead to abnormal discharge. Pick underwear made of cotton and avoid nylon as nylon retains sweat and increases the risk of infection. Good hygiene and a well-balanced diet are essential to reduce the risk of infections.

Bigger May Not Be Better During Pregnancy

Weight gain during pregnancy varies among women. If you are underweight (BMI <18.5), you should gain 12.5-18kg. If your weight is normal (BMI 18.5-25), the recommended weight gain is 11.5-16kg. For overweight mother-to-be (BMI 25.1-29.9), the weight gain should between 7-11.5kg. For those who are obese, the weight gain should be less than 7kg. Avoid sudden and excessive weight gain as these are associated with adverse health effects such as pregnancy induced hypertension, gestational diabetes and complications during delivery.

The Gut Is the Culprit Of Poor Immune Health!

When the intestinal lining is irritated, it creates pathways for unwanted larger molecules to pass through. Bacteria, toxins, and undigested food particles, are the potential culprits that impair your immune health. Stress, infections, excessive alcohol consumption, a poor diet as well as medication can affect your gut. Vinegar is a traditional aid for improved digestion and helps in reducing bloatedness, as it promotes the growth of good bacteria in the gut. For a new sense of wellness from within, try Kouzu Vinegar, a prized amino-rich Japanese vinegar. The 3-year fermented formula promotes vitality, aids digestion and boosts natural weight loss!

Essential Good Cholesterol.

Cholesterol is necessary for the production of hormones, bile salts and vitamins in our body. High levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) may cause plaque formation on artery walls, while good cholesterol (HDL) facilitates removal of excess cholesterol thus decreasing the risk of heart diseases. Maintain a good cholesterol balance with soluble fiber intake (to lower bad LDL), and Omega-3 fatty acids (to raise good HDL). Cold water fish (salmon, sardine and mackerel) are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Alternatively, try flax seeds and soy beans.

Effective Natural Relief For Constipation

Constipation can happen because the colon absorbs too much water or is sluggish. Insufficient fiber intake is the likely cause in most cases. Soluble fiber from oats, rice bran, and fruit will help to soften stools for easy elimination. Whole grains, cereals, seeds, and the skin of most fruits and vegetables provide insoluble fibers that help the stool pass quickly through the intestines. To meet your daily fiber needs, aim for at least 2 servings of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables/ legumes. Also, drink at least 8 glasses of water to aid regular bowel movement.

Choose whole grain breads

Choose wholegrain breads over white breads. White bread is made from white flour is refined to remove the bran and germ, which carry the most nutrients and fiber. Look out for food labels that list the first ingredient as whole wheat, whole meal, or whole corn. If you can, choose whole grain breads with intact grains, seeds, oats or nuts. These will help regulate blood sugar level and maximize the benefits of carbohydrates.

Liver-Friendly Diet

Firstly, watch your alcohol intake. Processing alcohol stresses your liver significantly. Keeping your liver from toxic chemicals relaxes it and maintains its optimal function. And also, keep yourself away from greasy fatty foods. Saturated fats are harder to process, such as sausages, bacon, hot dogs, and high fat dairy products. Limit the intake of processed food like white rice, biscuits, cakes, pastries, donuts and candy. Fresh fruits and vegetables are good source of enzymes, fibers, vitamins, phyto-nutrients, that help optimize liver functions.

Skin friendly fruits

Eating more Vitamin C-rich fruits, such as strawberry, guava, orange, and papaya may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Researches suggest that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer.  

Protect your skin from the sunlight

Nothing ages the skin faster than overexposure to sunlight which may cause skin dryness, freckles, wrinkles and even skin cancer. Hence, it is important to wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to protect your skin from overexposure and minimize sun damage. The American Association of Dermatology recommends applying sunscreen daily with a minimum SPF 15 to all exposed areas, and then re-apply every two hours. Consider taking an internal sunscreen, such as high quality FloraGlo Lutein and Astaxanthin to maintain healthy skin from the inside out.

Math for weight lost.

One pound of fat is approximately to 3500 calorie. Cut down 500kcal per day gives you 1 pound of fat lost per week. Cut down 250kcal per day by simply by skipping one slice of bread (75kcal), one tablespoon of peanut butter (90kcal), and three tablespoons of rice (90kcal). The rest of the 250kcal, you can burn it off easily with simple exercises: 15-min walk to office and 15-min back from office (95kcal) plus 20-min jogging. Set your weight target sensibly with the math! Remember not to push yourself too hard as it may cause lost weight rebound!

Swap your calories!

Tempted to grab the Curry Puff at your snack time? Paused. It is heavily loaded with 246kcal, 16g of fats, and Trans-fats. Equivalent to calorie of 1 Chinese bowl of rice! Quickly swap that fattening puff with 20 almond nuts of 120kcal instead. You save yourself of 126kcal! And you are feeding your body with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and other minerals! Still craving for fats? Take Chitosan Trim before your sinful indulgence. It binds and dispels the fats, for effective control of your fat intake.

joint health tips

Stretch and flex.

Regular stretching helps keep muscles and joints strong and reduce the incidence of injury. To increase your joint’s current range of motion, the surrounding muscles have to be stretched progressively beyond their accustomed length. For example, stretching your waist muscles can help prevent back injury. Stand with a half squat with feet shoulder-width apart, knees bent and hands on hips. Bend slowly to the left then back to the center. Then bend to the right. You should feel the tension at your waist muscles. Keep it parallel without leaning forwards or backwards. It takes merely 5 minutes for 10 repetitions!

Joint food.

Foods high in antioxidants such as fruits and vegetables can help to fight off free radicals which may damage our joints. Omega-3 fatty acids have natural anti-inflammation properties to reduce swelling and stiffness. For extra cartilage help, take supplements with glucosamine and chondroitin to build up cartilage, improve joint lubrication and to inhibit enzymes from further cartilage breakdown. Joint Sensei is a quad-action formula with glucosamine, chondroitin, cat’s claw and Ajuga extracts specially formulated for joint health and improved flexibility.
