Travelling With Contact Lens

Aircraft cabins tend to have drier air quality and lower oxygen availability. If you are a contact lens user, using lubricating eye drops in your eyes before boarding may help to relieve some eye dryness during your flight. It is most ideal to remove your contact lens before your flight; your eyes are most comfortable wearing glasses when travelling by plane.

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 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.

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.

Practice Good Eating Habit

According to the American Dental Association, consuming a balanced and nutritious diet is an essential aspect of caring for your teeth. Foods that are rich in Calcium and Protein such as dairy products, lean meats, soy products and nuts play an important role in protecting and rebuilding your tooth enamel. It is also important to avoid excessive intake of candy, soft drinks and cookies which can lead to tooth decay due to their high sugar content. 

An Apple A Day, Keep Your Teeth Healthy

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.

Healthy Diet For Healthy Hair

Nuts supply zinc which promotes stronger hair and stimulates healthy hair growth. Do not forget the greens, as they are loaded with Vitamin A to relieve itching and scalp dryness and Vitamin C which may retard hair loss. Also, whole grains are rich in silicon which prevents brittle hairs. Vitamin Bs from meat and mushrooms can help delay the onset of gray hair. Lastly, keep your diet low in unhealthy fats, as excess fats consumption leads to oily hair.  Beauty starts within, so begins with a healthy natural diet for healthy hair!

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.

Away With PMS!

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) includes irritability, mood swings, water retention, bloating, and headaches.  Interestingly, PMS can account for more than 50% of the sick leave women take at work. Research by the National Institute of Health shows that women under stress have moderate to severe symptoms during menstruation. Solutions? Pick a sport - running, tennis, aerobic dancing, or any other kind of intensive exercise! This boosts serotonin levels, also known as the ‘happy’ hormone, which helps to reduce or even prevent PMS. Plus, exercise is a good stress buster too!

High Heels & Foot Pain!

Research shows that women who wear high heels have shorter muscle fibres and thicker and stiffer Achilles’ tendons. In the long run, this limits the motions of the ankle and heels-wearer will find it painful to walk in flat-soled shoes. The occasional swapping between flat-soled shoes and high heels will help to keep your tendons stretched and will also prevent aching feet. Also, regular stretching relieves the tensed muscle fibers. It is important to choose your shoes wisely. Platform shoes are often better than stilettos, and always opt for shoes with a snug fit.

Stay Healthy For An Enjoyable Trip

Nothing spoils the excitement of discovering a foreign place like falling sick. The most common conditions that take place during trips are diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps and bloating. It pays to take extra precautions, particularly if you are travelling to developing countries: always stick to bottled water, and avoid eating raw or undercooked food. Also, wash your hands with soap, and use a hand sanitizer when washing facilities are unavailable.

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!

Cut down fried foods for healthy cholesterol level

Do French fries contain cholesterol? No, dietary cholesterol comes only from animal based foods. French fries, along with coconut milk (found in laksa) and margarine, have no cholesterol. However, French fries are high in saturated fat, which will increase the production of cholesterol in the body. Hence, eat fried foods sparingly. 

Watch for trans fat!

Trans fat can make food taste good, last longer on grocery-store shelves, but it is hazardous to your heart. It can raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol levels, lower the good (HDL) cholesterol levels and increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke.  Trans fats can be found in many foods, especially in fried foods like french fries and doughnuts, and baked goods including pastries, pie crusts, biscuits, pizza dough, cookies,  stick margarines and shortenings.

Minimize sunlight exposure.

Overexposure to harmful UV rays can cause up to 20% more collagen loss in skin. Always ensure you have sun protection and stay out of the sun from 10am to 4pm, when the rays are the most intense. According to Environmental Working Group in UK, there are currently no sunscreens that meet their safety levels. Common sunscreen contains Vitamin A (retinol/ retinyl palmitate) which may increase the risk of cancer or disrupt hormonal balance. Choose sunscreen without these harmful chemicals. For added protection, wear a hat and cover up.

weight and diet tips

Eat early, weight less!

“When you eat” as well as “how much you eat”  may also affect your weight. Studies suggest that consuming more of your daily calories at breakfast and fewer at dinner can help you drop more pounds. Eating a larger, healthy breakfast can jump start your metabolism, stop you feeling hungry during the day, and give you more time to burn off the calories.

Trying to lose weight? Drink more water!

Drink more water and reduce your daily calorie intake by replacing soft drink, alcohol or coffee with water. Thirst can also be confused with hunger, so by drinking water, you may avoid consuming extra calories.

Exercise strengthens joint functions

Joint pain can be caused by many different factors, include wear and tear, injury and osteoarthritis.  Will exercise aggravate joint pain? No. Exercise such as brisk walking can help to maintain bone strength, strengthen muscles and tissues around your joints. It helps to ease arthritis joint pain, increase strength and flexibility.

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!
