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.

Feed Your Eyes

In various studies and clinical trials, antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins A, C and E can help maintain healthy cells and tissues in the eyes. These vitamins are found in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, tomatoes, kale and spinach. Two key protective antioxidants are lutein and zeaxanthin, which also help to protect against macular degeneration and free radical damage. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for nerve conduction in the retina. For healthy eyes, eat a good and balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, with oily fish like salmon, sardine or mackerel.

DHA For Brain Development

During the last trimester of pregnancy and first two years of life, the brain undergoes rapid growth.

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.

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. 

Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

Keeping your toothbrush clean is vital for your oral health. Always rinse your toothbrush with water after using it. Store your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air-dry until the next use. Do not routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, as it  encourages the growth of bacteria. It is also important to replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.  You may also opt for toothbrushes with anti-bacterial bristles to prevent bacteria growth on the brushhead.

Spa For Your Scalp At Home

To boost healthy hair growth, sufficient nutrient supply is highly important. Massage promotes circulation to the scalp, ensuring that nutrients are channelled to the hair follicles, which increases the rate and quality of hair. As little as 5 minutes of massage will be helpful in strengthening your hair. Gentlely massage your hair after applying your hair care products- this will enhance the absorption of products into scalp layers, allowing the product to work better.

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.

Vinegar – Japan’s secret to longevity

Vinegar has a reputation for being a natural antiseptic, preservative and culinary ingredient.
