The Benefits Of Sleeping On Your Left Side

We have been told that the best position to sleep during pregnancy is on your sides. Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby.

For me, it has now become my habit to sleep on my left since 14 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child.  I do sleep on my back too occasionally but that will cause my back to hurt if I remain in this position for more than 8 hours straight.

Folks, if you suffer from constipation and digestion issues, you can try to change the position you sleep to the left side.  Sleeping on your left may be able to help alleviate the symptoms.

Health Benefits Of Sleeping On Your Left

1. Boosts Digestion
The way your intestines travel across your stomach, food waste will be processed faster if you sleep on your left side. In that position, food will travel more swiftly from your small intestine to your large intestine, then into the descending colon.  Lying on your left side improves digestion by putting less strain on your liver. This, in turn, stimulates bile flow and increases nutrients absorption.

It is even recommended to take 10-minute rests lying on your left side after eating to help your meal to be better digested and to recover from the dreaded “food coma” quicker.

2. Spine and breathing
Sleeping on your side is the least naturally harmful for the spine. Sleeping on your back puts too much pressure on the upper back and hips, and leaves your lower back in a suspended state that is harmful in the long run. Likewise, sleeping on your stomach strains both your lower back and your neck.  Sleeping on your side is the best at providing optimal air flow to the lungs.

3. Lymph draining

The majority of the lymphatic system is present on the left side of your body and when lymphatic congestion occurs, it is frequently on the left-hand side. So when you sleep on your left side, you’re allowing gravity to take some of the pressure of lymph drainage away from your heart and your spleen, both of which are also located on the left side of your body.

4. Prevents Snoring
You can also try sleeping on your left side to relieve sleep apnea and snoring. This position opens airways by keeping your tongue and throat muscles in a neutral position.

In contrast, sleeping on your back pushes these muscles towards the back of your throat and causes distinct snoring noises and you struggle to breathe.

5. Improves Brain Health
Researchers have also discovered that sleeping on your left side helps your brain filter out waste and can even help prevent certain health conditions, like Alzheimer’s.

6. Improves Blood Circulation
This position improves blood circulation throughout the night. In fact, sleeping on your side takes pressure off your vena cava (largest vein in the body), which is located on the right side of your body and supplies blood to the right side of your heart.

Pregnant women are often advised to sleep on their left side as it significantly improves blood flow to the heart, fetus, uterus, and kidneys.

Effects Of Taking Vitamins With Caffeine

I used to take my multivitamins with my morning cuppa coffee though I knew that there were side effects of doing so.  But I wanted to get over and done with popping all my vitamins first thing in the morning before I got busy and forget all about it later. The last straw for me was when I popped my calcium, super lutein, fish oil and iron with a mug of coffee. Minutes later, I felt a gagging feeling in my throat. My tummy felt bloated. I felt nauseous and bloated for the next few weeks. That was the last time I popped my vitamins with my coffee.

These days, I space out my mug of morning coffee and green tea with vitamins popping over several hours. The bloatedness and stomach discomfort are gone.

A cup of coffee and a daily multivitamin go hand-in-hand — they’re just part of your morning routine. While taking a multivitamin and drinking a cup of coffee isn’t generally dangerous, you might not be getting all of the nutrients your supplement has to offer.  Any beverage or food containing caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate and some sodas can inhibit the absorption of vitamins and minerals and increase their excretion from the body.  You’re better off waiting until after you finish that cup of joe.

Doubling Up on Caffeine
Some multivitamin supplements already contain caffeine. So if you enjoy a steamy cup right after taking your multivitamin, you’re getting way more caffeine than you may realize. The excessive amount of caffeine in your system can make your heart start racing and leave you jittery. If the label on your multivitamin has wording like “mental alertness” or “energy,” the vitamin pill likely contains caffeine.

Nutrients Cruising Through Your System With Caffeine
Coffee is a stimulant, so it revs up the gastrointestinal tract and makes things move more quickly through your body. You won’t absorb all of the nutrients from a capsule that is cruising through your system. The good news is you don’t have to skip your morning mug. Just drink your coffee first and then wait 10-15 minutes or longer before you pop your vitamins with a glass of water.

Water-soluble Vitamins & Caffeine
When it comes to water-soluble vitamins, caffeine reduces the amount of nutrients available to the body. Water-soluble vitamins like Vitamin C are normally excreted in the urine when there is an excess amount. Since coffee is a mild diuretic, it causes more urine to be produced. As more urine is released by the body, it takes Vitamin C and the B vitamins with it. In addition, caffeine directly interferes with how the body can metabolize B vitamins. As a result of this diuretic action, individuals who drink coffee can become depleted of Vitamin C.

Calcium
Caffeine causes calcium to be excreted in the urine and feces. For every 150 mg of caffeine ingested, about the amount in one cup of coffee, 5 mg of calcium is lost. This effect occurs even hours after the consumption of caffeine. One study of postmenopausal women found that those who consumed more than 300 mg of caffeine lost more bone in the spine than women who consumed less.

Caffeine also inhibits the amount of calcium that is absorbed through the intestinal tract and depletes the amount retained by the bones. Studies have shown that women with high caffeine intake suffer more hip fractures than those who avoid caffeine or drink in moderation (1 to 2 cups per day).

Vitamin D
Caffeine inhibits vitamin D receptors, which limit the amount that will be absorbed. Because vitamin D is important in the absorption and use of calcium in building bone, this could also decrease bone mineral density, resulting in an increased risk for osteoporosis.

Iron
Caffeine interferes with the body’s absorption of iron, which is necessary for red blood cell production. Drinking caffeine at the same time as an iron source can reduce absorption by up to 80%, according to the Nutrition Desk Reference. Any beverage containing caffeine should be separated from iron-containing foods or supplements by at least one hour.

Other Vitamins and Minerals
Caffeine may reduce the absorption of manganese, zinc and copper. It also increases the excretion of the minerals magnesium, potassium, sodium and phosphate. There is also evidence that caffeine interferes with the action of vitamin A.

Negative Effects Of Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation can have profound consequences on your physical health. If you constantly do not get enough shut eye, you would probably have felt the effects of sleep deprivation like feeling grumpy, snappy, lack of focus, just to name a few.  For 4 years since my helper left, I have to ‘learn’ to take over the house chores, leaving me with at least 3 hours short of my usual 7-8 hours of sleep each day. That left a profound dent on my physical and mental health – from lacking in stamina to feeling edgy, moody, crabby, fluttering heart beats and a whole load of problems.

The cost of all those sleepless nights is more than just bad moods and a lack of focus.  Regular poor sleep puts you at risk of serious medical conditions, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes – and it shortens your life expectancy.

The Journal of Neuroscience reports: “After 24 hours of sleep deprivation, healthy individuals show symptoms of psychosis similar to those observed in schizophrenia.”

According to Scientific American, not only can lack of sleep lead to psychosis, but sleep deprivation in healthy people can also begin to rewire the brain’s emotional centers, causing people’s behavior to seem erratic and unstable.  This explains why I feel easily agitated on most school-going days as I only get a maximum of 5 hours of sleep each night. However, taking two power naps of 20 – 30 minutes twice a day helps to recharge my batteries and put my mood back in order.

Different people have different thresholds of erratic behavior after a period of insomnia. Someone who also has a physical illness, someone with a lot of previous traumas, someone who is genetically predisposed to mental illness, someone who hasn’t had good nutrition–all of these conditions can increase the severity of combative, unruly behavior due to lack of sleep.

An occasional night without sleep makes you feel tired and irritable the next day, but it won’t harm your health.

After several sleepless nights, the mental effects become more serious. Your brain will fog, making it difficult to concentrate and make decisions. You’ll start to feel down, and may fall asleep during the day. Your risk of injury and accidents at home, work and on the road also increases.

How much sleep do we need?

Most of us need around eight hours of good-quality sleep a night to function properly – but some need more and some less. What matters is that you find out how much sleep you need and then try to achieve it.

As a general rule, if you wake up tired and spend the day longing for a chance to have a nap, it’s likely that you’re not getting enough sleep.

How to catch up on lost sleep

If you don’t get enough sleep, there’s only one way to compensate – getting more sleep.

It won’t happen with a single early night. If you’ve had months of restricted sleep, you’ll have built up a significant sleep debt, so expect recovery to take several weeks.

Starting on a weekend, try to add on an extra hour or two of sleep a night. The way to do this is to go to bed when you’re tired, and allow your body to wake you in the morning (no alarm clocks allowed!).

Expect to sleep for upwards of 10 hours a night at first. After a while, the amount of time you sleep will gradually decrease to a normal level.

Don’t rely on caffeine or energy drinks as a short-term pick-me-up. They may boost your energy and concentration temporarily, but can disrupt your sleep patterns even further in the long term.

Your Posture And The Effect On Digestion

Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms: bloating, gas, burping, diarrhea, constipation or acid reflux?  If your answer is yes, I am sure you have been trying hard to be very careful with the type of food that you eat, when you eat them and even tried to reduce the portion, only to have the problems revisiting you time and again.

Have you ever taken the time to look at your posture?

Bad posture is the new first-world problem that is causing more mental and physical health complications than most people realize.

The human body was designed to move and  not to sit on a chair or couch for several hours at a time. Look at the cavemen. They moved around to hunt for food.  They were fit, trim and lived over a hundred years of age.

I have always been experimenting on different postures whenever I have a distended abdomen with gas — sitting and walking upright vs sitting and walking with a slouched back.  I find that I feel better when I sit and walk with a straight back, with tummy tucked in. Of course this takes more effort but if we do it continuously, over time, it becomes a habit that we carry ourselves with a straight back.

Over time, bad posture habits lead to fatigue, depression, pain and headaches. There’s the reason why your mother told you to sit and walk straight as poor posture causes a host of ailments. I am sure you never thought of that, except that people with poor posture look sloppy.

poor-posture-exercises-to-improve

Sitting does more than just constrict your heart and lungs, it also constricts your intestines. This can make digestion uncomfortable and cause a host of issues. If you are experiencing digestive distress, you may want to take a closer look at your posture and how much time you are spending sitting each day.

Digestive problems are a very common reason people alter their diet. But specific foods aren’t the only reason why your digestion might be in trouble – and one of the other potential factors is posture.

Exercises-for-good-posture

 

 

Bad posture constricts the blood vessels, starving the organs of oxygen and nutrients, cramping digestion. Posture defects may compound existing health problems such as indigestion and asthma by compressing the lungs and stomach.

Many of us have a sedentary lifestyle. We spend too much time sitting at our desks, in cars or watching TV. We tend to slouch and slump as the lower back muscles tire. Eventually, our hunched positions fossilise as the muscles give in and reluctantly adapt to the demands placed on them.

When it comes to the digestive system, proper posture allows the internal organs in the abdomen to assume their natural position without undue compression, which can interfere with the normal flow and function of the gastrointestinal apparatus.

Standing up straight not only allows the abdominal organs to function better, but it also improves the shape of the body in ways that are immediate and profound. For instance, one of the major complaints of mature women (and men) is a growing “belly pouch,” an abdominal distention that afflicts even thin people as they age and that can’t be resolved by liposuction or sit-ups alone because it is due to the protruding viscera pushing against the abdominal wall.

By straightening up the body you can trim several inches from the waist simply by increasing the distance between your lower ribs and the pelvis, allowing greater volume for the internal organs to spread, and instantaneously reducing an unsightly “beer belly” or a grandmotherly bulge.

I have to remind myself to sit and walk upright all the time to look and feel better.  If you slouch, slump on your chair or have bad posture, make the change today too!

Anxiety Causes Wind / Gas

The past 1 week has been a week filled with stress and anxiety.

Cass was hospitalized for UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) but was on home leave. Hubby had to drive us to the hospital for her antibiotic jabs three times a day at 9am, 4pm and 11pm. It was a week filled with whirlwind events, anxiety, worries, lots of mad rush, lack of sleep and stress. Because of the urgency of her admission, the timing of her jabs and the tests ordered by the doctor, I had skipped meals and meals off my regular hours.

And the result?

BAD.   A big bloated gassy stomach. And I have been in pain caused by the trapped wind in the stomach.  Double whammy!

It’s true that when it rains, it pours real heavily!  It always appears that when the dark cloud is hovering above you, it would stay on and rain on you till you drown.  I am anxiously awaiting the rainbow and light at the end of the tunnel now.

When you know you have anxiety, there are many symptoms you expect. You expect to feel very tense. You expect to have a lot of nervous thoughts and actions. You expect a rapid heartbeat, nausea, and shaking. But you may not expect that anxiety can cause gas problems. Not only can anxiety lead to gas problems/bloating – the gas problems themselves can actually lead to symptoms that cause further anxiety.  While being gassy is generally nothing to worry about, recognizing the cause of your gas problems is important for ensuring you’re not overwhelmed by your anxiety symptoms.

It is hard to pinpoint the exact cause of your gas without tests, but it is very likely to be caused by any or all of the following:

  • Air Swallowing – During anxiety attacks, it’s not uncommon to start swallowing too much air. You’re not necessarily doing this intentionally – you may simply be swallowing saliva and swallow air as a result, or you may simply be breathing too quickly and some air is going down the wrong tube – but once the air is inside your body, it starts to cause pressure and needs to be released.
  • Oxygen Release – Similarly, those with anxiety and panic attacks are more likely to suffer from hyperventilation. Hyperventilation is when there is too much oxygen in your blood. Eventually that oxygen needs to be dispelled, and gas may be the result.
  • Digestion Issues- Anxiety causes stress on your gastrointestinal system. That stress may cause you to stop processing food efficiently, often processing it too quickly or too slowly. That can cause the bacteria in your body to produce excess gas, which leads to bloating. Irritable bowel syndrome may also be caused by or aggravated by anxiety, and this too can lead to similar gas issues.

No only is the wind trapped in my stomach, it is also trapped in my breasts!! It is agony and the pain is very sharp at times and feels as if a knife is stabbing my breast from the inside!

 

 

Natural Remedies to Expel Gas/Wind:

1) Drink some peppermint tea

2) Let them loose. If you have the urge to release the wind, do not resist it. Just find a place in private and do yourself a favor.

3) Ginger is tummy tamer.  Make yourself a cup of ginger tea.

4) Drink chamomile tea.

5)  Eat pumpkin. Eat approximately 1 cup of pumpkin with your meal to ward off gas. You can have it baked, steamed, or broiled, or whip up a recipe all your own.

6) Chew food thoroughly.

7) Drink warm lemon water.

8) Massage tummy.  Whenever my kids and I have gas in my stomach, I use my most trusted Melaleuca oil to massage our tummies. It works most of the time instantly.  The sound of the gas being released like a deflated balloon is music to my ears and big relief in my tummy.

9) Avoid gas-causing foods.

10) I find that exercising (light jogging and swimming) helps. You can try yoga too.

There are many other natural remedies for relieving gas. You can google search for one that best fits you.

Should Fruits Be Eaten On An Empty Stomach?

I have been eating my fruits on an empty stomach in the morning for almost 20 years. My ex-colleague was the one who introduced this health regime to me. Sure enough, after following this fruit-eating on empty stomach routine for weeks, I felt the difference in my health. And so I have been religiously doing this since 1996, everyday of my life, even when I had to travel overseas or was stuck in the hospital with Cass.

 

But now health experts are saying that eating fruits on empty stomach is a myth. These experts are saying that fruits can be eaten at any time and it can be eaten along with other foods.  The body produces digestive enzymes for protein, fat, and carbohydrates which help it to digest mixed meals. Besides, since the stomach has a high concentration of hydrochloric acid, bacteria is killed before it is able to reproduce, so fermentation cannot take place in the stomach.  If we could not digest mixed meals, we would not even be able to digest most foods since most foods are a combination of nutrients. For example, even vegetables like green beans and broccoli are a mix of carbohydrate and protein.

Whatever claim there is on eating fruits, I still prefer to eat my fruits on an empty stomach.  My kids do that too and we have been practising this for many years.   What food is good for you and what food is bad for you keeps changing. Decades ago, coconut oil was the bane to our health. Now, coconut oil is touted as a super food!  Similarly, years ago, we were advised to choose margarine over butter. Now, it is the other way round!

If you have an elderly Chinese relative  living with you, I’ll bet she / he will digress and say that fruits is too ‘leong’ or cooling for the body and should be eaten after food.

My take is – do whatever makes your body feel good. You can try both methods and compare the effects and then stick to one that you are comfortable with.

Oat Bran Causes Gas And Constipation

It’s been more than a week since I started adding oat bran into my diet to reap its many health virtues.  But each time after I had taken oat bran, my tummy would feel really bloated with flatulence  and constipation would follow the next day!

Initially, I wasn’t really sure that oat bran was the culprit. I thought I had eaten something that caused gas. And I blamed it on the hormones too!   However, after several times, I finally saw the trend and identified the culprit!  That after a meal of oat bran with milk, my stomach would start to balloon up with discomfort. The next day, I would be sitting and waiting on the throne!

Today, I stopped taking oat bran and my stomach feels fine and dandy.  Then I googled ‘oat bran and gas’, ‘oat bran and constipation’ and I was spot on. Indeed oat bran is the culprit to all my stomach discomfort!

Here’s a very interesting article on ‘Healthy eating can make tummy trouble WORSE: Why a high-fibre diet isn’t always the answer for gut problems‘ from the dailymail.co.uk

BRAN

Doctors often advise adding a handful of bran to cereals to help with constipation (defined as going to the loo less than three times a week).

This is because bran is insoluble fibre, meaning it fills the stomach up and stimulates the bowel.

But bran can actually exacerbate some forms of constipation.

‘For constipation, there’s a belief that eating fibre such as bran always helps,’ says Dr Emmanuel.

‘But with slow transit constipation (STC) — a nerve and muscle problem that causes the slow passage of waste through the large intestine — it can cause bloating and excessive gas.

And for five million of the 12??million people suffering IBS in this country, fibre is one of the worst things, says Peter Whorwell, professor of medicine and gastroenterology at University Hospital of South Manchester.

Adding a bulking agent in the form of fibre such as bran gives the bowel even more work to do,’ he says.

‘A significant number of IBS patients might be hyper-reactive to agents that stimulate or irritate the gut, particularly when it comes to bran.

‘It’s wrong to say that eating fibre is healthy when it exacerbates unpleasant symptoms for so many people with IBS.’

Once he has assessed that this is the problem, Professor Whorwell advises his patients to switch to white bread, white pasta, biscuits and cream crackers — anything made from refined white flour, as these don’t contain as much rough fibre.

A Healthy Diet Prevents Nutritional Deficiencies

Important nutrients are normally absorbed by your body through healthy foods and vitamins, but there are many people who don’t eat nutritious foods, or even regular meals. If you’re daily diet is lacking in essential nutrients, natural health supplements can help your body replace what it needs.

A poor diet without adequate amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fats can cause nutritional deficiencies. Over time, these deficiencies can result in a variety of health problems that affect your bones, heart, digestion, skin and mental health. Because your body stores nutrients to use them as needed, nutritional deficiencies can go undetected for a long period of time. If you’re not eating a well-balanced diet, it’s important to know the warning signs and symptoms of nutritional deficiencies.

What are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of nutritional deficiencies can vary based on the specific nutrients that are lacking in your diet. Since general symptoms mimic the symptoms of many illnesses, it may be necessary to visit your doctor for a blood test that includes a complete blood count. This is the only way a nutritional deficiency can be diagnosed. Here are some of the symptoms to watch out for:

* Weakness
* Fatigue
* Dizziness
* Sleepiness or insomnia
* Constipation
* Irregular heart rhythms
* Poor concentration
* Memory loss
* Depression
* Hair thinning or loss
* Palor or pale skin

Most health problems caused by nutritional deficiencies can be reversed with proper eating habits, a healthy diet and supplements, but severe or long-term deficiencies may contribute to permanent health problems.

Common Nutritional Deficiencies

Iron – Iron deficiency can cause anemia, since iron helps to produce healthy red blood cells. Red meat, egg yolks and dark green, leafy vegetables are all high in iron.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A is important to good eye health. Vitamin A deficiencies and eye problems can be prevented with a diet that includes green and yellow fruits and vegetables and daily vitamin supplements.

Vitamins B1 and B3 – Vitamin B1 (thiamine) builds healthy nerves and muscles. A deficiency can lead to heart problems. Vitamin B3 (niacin) is important for healthy skin and good digestion. A deficiency can lead to pellagra and gastrointestinal problems. Green vegetables, fish and whole grains are high in B vitamins.

Calcium – Calcium is essential for strong bones, teeth, muscles and nerves. Calcium deficiencies can lead to osteoporosis, tooth loss and heart problems. Green leafy vegetables, calcium-fortified grains and dairy products are excellent sources of calcium.

3 Ways to Make Your Medical Office More Inviting

Most people dread visiting the doctor because most of it is out of our norm. Having someone exam your body can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing. Ensuring that patients feel at ease in your office is important in sealing their next appointment with you. Doing so can be easier than you thought.

Pleasant Atmosphere
Temperature is key here. Whether in the exam room or the waiting room, it is often colder than most prefer. Many exams require the removal of clothing which makes the visitor feel even less comfortable. Adding paintings, a television or other noticeable decor makes the person feel more at ease and relaxed during their wait and visit. Improving all aspects will leave the person feeling happier with their experience.

Friendly Service
Put frankly, people expect to be treated with respect and friendly intentions. Ensuring that you and your staff are trained to do so will leave patients with the highest impressions and promote their return.

Adequate Equipment
Plenty of people are already nervous with the idea of their appointment so making sure that everything in the office is up to date and of great quality will ease the patient slightly. Learn more about the newest options for your equipment for better reactions and results.

Many doctor visits are unavoidable so making the most of them for your clients will leave them feeling appreciated and willing to revisit. They might also spread good reviews of their pleasant experience.

Dangerous Chemicals In Toiletries and Make-Up

My face is often devoid of make-up. I don’t even have foundation and face powder in my vanity pouch.  Thank God for my parents’ genes, I have pretty flawless skin.  The most I’ll do is to dust some baby powder on my face and brush a stroke or two of blusher on my cheeks. Occasionally, I will draw my eyebrows and put on a little color on my lips. I dispose my lipstick after a year, even if the stick is not even 50% used.  I really hate to think of what the chemicals will do to my body when I ingest chemicals from the lipstick that I put on.

See this list here?  This applies to everyone, not just eczema sufferers. When we use these products with hidden chemical, it is indirectly entering our bloodstream and over time causes harm to our bodies. Breast cancer is just one disease you can get from over use of such products, for example.

This is how manufacturers screw consumers!

 

My friend chanced upon this Drug Facts labelling when her young daughter peeled it off her Lady Speed Stick.  Tell me, who would actually tear the label off to read what’s overleaf.  I’ll just chuck my empty toiletry container into the recycle bin without giving a hoot to peel off the label to read what’s overleaf.

This particular speed stick, looked pretty innocent with a sticker at the back showing its ingredients.  Check out the 4th line – it says ‘Ask a doctor before use if you have kidney disease’.  So what does this mean?  It is trying to warn you that the chemicals from the Speed Stick enter our bloodstream and if you are a kidney patient, the chemicals may exacerbate your condition.

That is why I never use roll-on anti-perspirant and anti-deodorant. Even with talcum powders, I read the ingredients very carefully and only use baby talcum powders made from corn and other natural ingredients.  Once I bought a bottle of talcum powder with cooling effect. I liked it a lot as it gave me a nice cooling sensation and I loved the fragrance.  Then, the health freak me read the list of ingredients carefully and I was horrified when I read that Triclosan is one of the ingredients in it. Go Google to find out what Triclosan is.   I  buy shampoos and soaps without  SLS and paraben, though they cost so much more than regular ones.  And I drink Izumio everyday.  The hydrogen from Izumio acts to flush out toxins from our body through sweat and urine, besides balancing the pH within the body.  Hydrogen is the smallest atom in the world that can penetrate your cells at a mitochondrial level and has strong anti-oxidant properties, eliminating free radicals within your body at enormous rates.

It is really quite hard for many of us to avoid using make-up, toiletries with hidden chemicals and expose ourselves to toxic chemicals. Even the Clorox (which is highly corrosive) that you use to clean your toilets and whiten your white shirts are highly toxic when mixed with ammonia.

So do yourself a favor today by giving your body a detox to rid it of toxins and free radicals.  Besides the simple fruit and veggie detox, juice cleanse, exercise and drinking detox tea, you can also drink hydrogen water.  Choose one that suits your lifestyle.  Do not wait till your body is overloaded with toxins and serious ailments start to creep out.  Start detoxing your body today! 🙂
