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.

Smoking Can Affect Your Vision Health

Smoking is a risk factor for certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. This is because it reduces blood flow and nutrient supply to the eyes and increases the amount of toxic substances like tar and nicotine in the body.  Hence, protect your eyes by quitting smoking. Consider taking an eye care supplement that contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and various antioxidants to reduce age-related vision degeneration.

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.

Easy Steps For Dandruff Prevention

Dandruff happens due to the faster turnover of skin cells on our scalp. It is more prevalent among people with imbalanced oil level (oil or dry scalp) and is common among men.

The Right Comb For Silky Hair

A good comb helps you to obtain healthy hair. Spend 3 minutes inspecting a comb. To avoid scalp irritation, choose a comb with smooth edges, and avoid comb that cause discomfort or pain.

Monthly Breast Self Exam Can Save Lives!

The earlier Breast Cancer is diagnosed, the better the prognosis. All females should start conducting breast self-exam from the age of 20.

Move your fingers around your breast in a circular movement from the outer edge to nipple area. Repeat the same steps for left breast.

Bigger May Not Be Better During Pregnancy

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.

Manage stress better

When more than 90% of doctor visits are stress-related, you can save yourself time and money by learning how to manage stress levels better. Stress drains energy and deprives your body of essential nutrients for healthy metabolism. Under stress, the body loses the B Vitamins the fastest. Consuming more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish, meat or poultry ensures a healthy level of Vitamin Bs. To supplement your diet better, take a comprehensive Vitamin B Complex to improve mood and alleviate stress. Exercise has been proven to regulate stress levels by reducing stress hormones and increasing endorphins (the ‘feel good’ hormone) that helps your body relax.

Restore your pH balance with vinegar

Contrary to belief, vinegar which tastes sour is not acidic but actually an alkalizing food that helps to maintain healthy pH level of the body. This ensures the vital functioning of all the cells, systems and organs in the body. Having too acidic pH level can lead to health issues such as weight gain, diabetes, bladder or kidney disorders, premature aging, low energy and chronic fatigue.

For makeup that stays:

Start with a clean, moisturized face. It is important to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells, to minimize a blotchy or flaky appearance. For naturally radiant, healthy looking skin, ensure a sufficient intake of collagen in your diet. Collagen is an important protein that is an important building block for healthy skin. A quality collagen formula like Collagen Beauty helps skin regeneration and improves skin clarity for a more youthful appearance.

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.

Why Japanese are slimmest?

How is it that the Japanese are one of the slimmest people around? Their slimming secrets: Seaweed & Walking. The Japanese have been eating seaweed for centuries. Seaweed is added to many Japanese foods such as sushi, soup and even as garnishing on their rice or noodles. Not only is seaweed high in fibre, it is also rich in nutrients and contains Fucoxanthin, a fat-busting substance. In addition, Japanese office folks walk a lot everyday during their commute as most of them take public transport that requires them to walk 30 minutes or more to the train station and changing trains. We too can emulate the Japanese lifestyle by putting in additional time for walking, be it to the supermarket, an after-dinner stroll or exploring the city on foot during weekends.
