Are you at risk for AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in loss of central vision because of damage to the macula, or central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and most common for people over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, or decreasing visual acuity, as well as the inability to discern colours or make out colour contrast when diagnosed with AMD. Studies found that Lutein and Zeaxanthin either help prevent AMD or may slow progression of the disease by block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

Travel with contact lens

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

Sensitive teeth? Pick the right brush for pain-free brushing

For those with sensitive teeth and bleeding gum, brushing and cleaning interdental spaces can create pain and discomfort. Tooth sensitivity occurs as a result of receding gum and exposed dentin. Many factors lead to sensitivity. Brushing too hard, over time, can damage enamel and cause recession of gum. The build-up of plaque, may cause gum disease, leading to bleeding gum and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasive on tooth structure and to cleanse the gum line better. A toothbrush with compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed while brushing with normal-sized brush head.  

Practice good eating habits

According to the American Dental Association, consuming a balanced and nutritional 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 that can lead to tooth decay due to their high sugar content.

High Heels & Foot Pain!

Occasional swabbing between lower heels and high heels keep your tendons stretched and prevent aching feet. Regular stretching relieves the tensed muscle fibers. It may not be good for you but you need not give up the killer heels once and for all. Choose your shoes wisely. Platform shoes are often better than stilettos, and always opt for shoes with a snug fit.

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.
