It is such a pleasure to introduce  Saravanan Naturopathic Physicians as an Influencer for Naturopathy on Women Lines panel. This month Dr. Saravanan Naturopath is giving tips to how to manage Diabetes naturally-

Diabetes is the most prevailing health problem in Singapore now. Any one is susceptible from any walks of life is prone to this condition. The count of diabetes patients has seen a significant rise in the recent years and continues to increase at an alarming rate. Our Prime Minster has the speak about it at the National Day Rally 2017. Indians are the most affected by Diabetes followed by the Malays and the Chinese.

 

Fortunately, you can manage diabetes with proper care. With careful attention to your blood sugar level, medications and lifestyle modifications, you can avoid many of the complications associated with diabetes. Diabetes could be treated with various natural home remedies.

 

Physiology of Diabetes

The food we consume is converted into glucose, the typical form of sugar in which dietary protein and carbohydrates are assimilated in humans. Glucose is transported by the blood stream throughout the body

Insulin is secreted into the bloodstream by the pancreatic beta cells in direct response to an increase in blood glucose concentration. This primary function of regulating proper blood glucose level in the body is achieved by releasing the glucose from the blood stream by entering the cells. Once the sugar is released from the blood stream, the pancreas stops producing insulin.The insulin receptors on our cells attract the insulin molecules that are in the blood stream. The glucose from the blood is passed to the cells through these receptors and the cells are nourished.When insufficient insulin is produced and or insulin receptors become insensitive to insulin molecules, the result is Diabetes.

Type II and Type II Diabetes

 

Type 1 is Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus. Conventional medicine classifies such diabetes happens due to unknown reasons or not totally understood, they maintain that it is genetically inherited and as well as auto immune disorders.

There are other medical practitioners who take a stand against the conventional medical system suggest that Type 1 diabetes is strongly influenced by pasteurized cow’s milk, artificial sweeteners and chlorine which is generally ingested into the body through drink tap water and shower. Chlorine depletes vitamin E and combines with vitamin E complexes to form alloxan. Alloxan is a chemical toxic to beta cells. Research had shown that children who developed type 1 diabetes generally have been breast fed for less than three months, and consumed either cow’s milk or solid food within the first few months of life. Another study had shown that children who did not drink cow’s milk within the first three months had a 40% reduced incidence of forming diabetes compared to those who drank cow’s milk.

Dr. John B. Classen in his studies observed that the hepatitis B vaccine, when given after 8 weeks of life, was associated with a 90% increased risk of diabetes.

Type II diabetes is also known as adult onset diabetes or Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes NIDDM happens due to poor utilization of insulin and inefficient production of insulin. It is related to high cholesterol, elevated blood pressure, obesity, and insulin resistance. Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome is about blood sugar metabolism and it is directly related to insulin resistance.Those who suffer from metabolic syndrome are twice likely to suffer from stroke, heart attack and die prematurely.

Symptoms

Some common symptoms of diabetes are excessive thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss irritability, fatigue, itchy skin, wounds that do not heal and gum lesions, blurred vision, tingling sensation and numbness in the feet and hands.

How could you prevent diabetes or overcome diabetes?

Exercise – Regular activity with moderate intensity usch as brisk walking for 45 to 90 minutes daily. This suits everybody. Then others according to the capabilities could do cycling, swimming, weight lifting etc. Exercise makes muscle cells to be more responsive to insulin.

 Food – Avoid all hyperglycemic foods. Foods that are high in glycemic index. Avoid foods made of refined flour like commercial breads, cereals, cakes, crackers, cookies, macaroni, spaghetti, all pastas, Anything made from refined flour makes the sugar to spike as high as refined sugar which has high GI at 100.Complex carbohydrates are beneficial. They are usually found in unprocessed vegetables and natural foods. These foods eliminate the sugar spikes.Other problem foods are packaged and canned foods. Sweeteners and artificial sweeteners and sugar added foods.

Replace refined carbohydrates with unrefined whole grains. Eat whole grains, fruits before meals, beans, raw seeds and raw nuts. Eating mono and poly unsaturated fats from vegetables, omega 3 fatty acids from fish, coconut oil, flax seed and sacha inchi oils reduce insulin requirements.Spices, like fenugreek, fennel seeds, cinnamon do help to regulate blood sugars. Use natural palm sugars and raw can sugars instead of refined and brown sugars.

 

Supplements – Digestive enzymes, pycnogenol, resveratrol, algae like AFA, Chlorella, NAD, probiotics, prebiotics, and a good detox would help. Speak to a naturopath who could recommend what is suitable for you.

Every Woman is an Entrepreneur

Believe it or not!

 

It is very true fact that every woman is an entrepreneur. She is dealing with different projects at the same time. Project for her kid’s health, project for her family food and snacks, project for managing the household, project for managing relationships. Project to create a beautiful ambiance in the house. Project to manage kids studies and project to manage herself.

It is a responsible portfolio with a single motive to create happiness in life for all members of her family. And then it is not getting that appreciation the way one gets for her project deliveries in professional fields. Or rather it can be said this is not getting acknowledged, as people take her work as a routine work for any household lady.

This thought process has to be changed. We as women definitely should not avoid our family responsibilities but perform it with full dedication, but in return, we should stop cribbing of not getting appreciation. The happiness of fulfilling our all jobs with dedication should be celebrated by giving credit to oneself and taking out some time for oneself.

I read a strong saying “ Everybody is good at one thing., but once has to choose that thing herself’ and polish it. Get to know yourself well by using your time in the best way and improving productivity by correct time management. Time saved from getting depressed of lack of appreciation and lamely thinking oneself, as waste should be constructively used to know what are you good at and improvising it every day.

Every woman is born genius. Use your brain to find your individuality. Why need assurance from any body else. God has given special powers to every woman and it can do wonders if used with the passion in the right direction. All the best womenfolk for creating miracles in life!

 

Naturopathy for healthy life for women series by Saravanan Naturopathic Physician

 

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver”- Mahatma Gandhi

How true is this saying!

Health is the real wealth and to manage this wealth Naturopathy can play important role in our life. Lady of the house is considered the pillar of a family and to make her family healthy she herself has to be healthy and happy. It is such a pleasure to introduce  Saravanan Naturopathic Physicians as an Influencer for Naturopathy on Women Lines panel. Every month in his article Saravanan will be sharing about how womenfolk can prevent various disease or get cured by following naturopathy.

In this article, Saravanan is sharing about Naturopathy and women’ health-

 

Naturopathy and Women’s health

Holistic and wellness therapies for mental, physical, emotional and spiritual are widely used by women all over the world than men. It may be because women are more aware and empowered to take charge of their health. Women want to look young, be healthy and feel empowered. Naturopathy can play a significant role in it.

Naturopathic therapies do not follow a single road to good health. It combines nature with modern science. This approach to health care embraces a wide array of non-invasive techniques and therapies, including traditional healing methods, principles, and practices.

Naturopathic therapies focus on holistic prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. Naturopathic physicians work with the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. The naturopathic physician tries to encourage good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.

Naturopathic physicians treat most medical conditions. Among the most common ailments they treat are allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia, skin challenges and chronic fatigue syndrome.

 

Basic Principles of Naturopathy

 

Naturopathy adheres to the following health principles

  • Naturally healing. Naturopathy contends that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself and, when working at an optimal level, to ward off disease. Naturopathy is intended to help your body do just that.
  • Therapies healing the person as a whole. Naturopaths work from the perspective that health and disease are more than just germs and infection. Mental, physical, spiritual and environmental factors each play a role. Naturopaths and their therapies take these factors into consideration when developing a treatment. So, where a conventional health care professional may prescribe medication to suppress symptoms, a naturopath may look for alternative approaches because the goal is to restore health, not simply banish illness.
  • First, do no harm. This tenet is, of course, part of the Hippocratic Oath taken by physicians. Traditionally, naturopathy focuses on gentle, non-invasive therapies that enhance the healing process. It is this principle that underlies the reluctance to turn immediately to drugs for a cure. Naturopaths generally avoid methods that merely relieve symptoms without addressing the cause. This is the foundation of another principle:
  • Identify the cause. Instead of treating symptoms, naturopaths seek to identify and treat the underlying cause. Symptoms are not the cause of illness—they simply indicate that your body is out of balance. The cause is often more difficult to identify. It could be anything from a vitamin or mineral deficiency to an emotional problem. By identifying and addressing (or removing) the cause, the symptoms can be relieved rather than suppressed.
  • Naturopaths place great emphasis on preventive care. Naturopaths assess your risk factors and make suggestions that will support your good health.
  • The physician as teacher. Naturopaths see themselves as teachers and try to teach patients how to take responsibility for their own health. This may involve suggesting nutritional, emotional, dietary or other lifestyle changes.

Is Naturopathy safe with conventional medicine? Naturopaths are willing to work cooperatively with their conventional-medicine counterparts. You should continue your existing treatments while seeking care from a naturopath. Be sure to keep all of your health care professionals apprised of all treatments you are receiving.

When to Visit a Naturopathic Physician? You might want to visit a naturopathic physician for many reasons. Perhaps you have a chronic condition that isn’t responding to conventional care. But you don’t have to suffer from a condition to visit a naturopathic physician. You may simply want to improve your overall health.

Naturopathy is particularly well suited for chronic conditions such as asthma, muscle pain, allergies, and arthritis, as well as disorders that may have a stress- or diet-related factors, such as digestive problems, insomnia, skin disorders and fatigue. Naturopathic physicians also treat colds, flu, and bronchitis. They treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and other menstrual and menopausal problems.

If you have a serious condition that requires hospitalization, major surgery or emergency treatment—for instance, if you have a broken bone—seek conventional medical assistance. You can receive follow-up care from your naturopathic physician, which may support natural healing pathways within the body.

Hey Woman, Dream Big!

Very Happy International Women’s Day to lovely womenfolk around! iwd

 

Keep shining, smiling and dreaming always. Dreams can come true if one works towards fulfilling them. It is all about what goals one has in life and how she wants to achieve.

 

It is pleasure to share about a wonderful dreamer’s dreams which she has turned into reality with her hard work and dedication. Women Lines has shared about Shalima Motial in the entrepreneur of the month section sometimes back. On the occasion of IWD Shalima is sharing her splendid achievements in details which give a message that every thing is possible if you take action. Get some dose of motivation friends by reading about her achievements-

 

Shalima Motial, founder, and CEO of Dream Catchers has stayed true to her company’s name and has helped catch hundreds of people’s dreams! Dream Catchers is an online talent showcase company that also does niche events onstage/offline. Dream Catchers has the fandom of 17,000 fans who support the 1100+ entertainers and models Dream Catchers has showcased.  IMG_20170308_130625

 

The first few chapters of Dream Catchers’ journey involves Dream Catchers launch event “Love to Dance”: A competitive platform for women to showcase their dancing talent. Dancers from France, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Spain made up the 60 women represented in 8 groups who tore the stage down with stellar performances. The top three groups won big cash prizes sponsored by Dream Catchers. And if we flip a few pages forward, we’ll see a beautiful 4 seasons of “Most Wanted Entertainer”: An online talent contest that roped in over 500 artists! Dream Catchers received entries from Singapore, Malaysia, America, Russia, Philippines, Canada and India which summed up to a show-stopping start.

 

Along Dream Catcher’s voyage to catch dreams, many collaborations were born. For two years in a row, they presented as NUS’s online talent partners for their competition “Stardust”. During this voyage, Dream Catchers has had many ongoing collaborations with Radio Masti which brought to us a sundry of events. They associated with Colors channel as their online talent partners to bring “Colors Got Talent” and “Jhalak Dikhla ja (2016)”. Dream Catchers joined hands with artist Druv Kent to present Battle of the Bands (2016). The three bands who won were ushered to the prestigious Victoria Arts Theatre where they got an opportunity to perform! Shalima Motial organized Bandwidths’ 2013 and 2016 concert both of which were a rocking success! The 2016 concert was a sold-out show one week ahead of time with 1100 people attending. Teamwork Production’s Fans of Salim Sulaiman had Dream Catchers on their side as their online talent partners. They brought many artists on board for the competition and winners got a chance to perform on stage with none other than Salim and Sulaiman themselves(Composers of more than 100 Bollywood Film songs)

They partnered in a similar fashion for Fans of Farhan Akhtar too.

The most recent chapters have two going on three beautiful seasons of Runway Mom penned down. Runway Mom, Runway Lovers is Shalima’s  brainchild: Runway Mom, Runway Lovers is a platform for women of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds to walk the ramp with their loved ones. Whether it be, their spouse and/or child. Moms get to create lifetime memories that they’ll cherish for years to come. The event is packaged with seven pre-events where all the momdels (Mom models) get to let their hair down and embrace womanhood. It’s a perfect time to be talking about Runway Mom, Runway Lovers (Third season) as International Women’s day is right around the corner holding hands with Runway Mom, Runway Lovers! “Providing a platform for someone else to excel and catch their dreams is the most gratifying experience. It’s amazing how many forces unite and contribute to relevant projects like these and make them a success.” (Shalima Motial, Founder and CEO of Dream Catchers). Approximately 130 women would have walked the ramp at the wrap of the third season. This just means 130 women’s dreams Dream Catchers has caught. Each season has outdone itself and we can’t wait to see what more magic Dream Catchers have added in the 3rd season (11th March 2017).

Shalima is so happy that she’s been Blessed to be a part of something greater than herself and that she’s been able to catch people’s dreams through Dream Catchers. She believes that: “A great entrepreneur, will keep reinventing her/his business to cater to the needs of the market and this requires resilience and determination’. Dream Catchers has not only catered to the needs of the market but has catered to the need of fulfilling our dreams. We can’t wait for what’s next in store!

 

5 Goals reminders for women to excel in life!

1. Live in the Moment    

A must daily reminder to keep focus in present moment only and concentrate all thoughts actions and full energy on the job getting done to the best of one’s ability. Let’s face it, friends, that our mind is a chatter box with continuously ongoing monkey chatter. We should be motivating ourselves to keep ourselves not only physically but also emotionally, mentally in the present moment only.                   images (6)

2. Empathize more

In the daily rush, we often forget to understand other people and want to prove our point only. Being a better listener can help a lot to understand others point of views. There should be authenticity in our relationship and not mere for the sake of having a relationship.  This reminder is very important to keep our human values intact and in use and just not live a robotic life. It is all about having the empathetic approach to everybody.

3. Increase efficiency of time management

Time is precious and when it goes it never comes back. Our approach should be being mindful of the most productive usage of our time. Whether with family or work, we should work on simplifying our life and instead of multi-tasking we should be giving priority to our to-do list. In today’s techno world there are a variety of tools which can help in increasing ur productivity and efficiency. Apps like Evernote, Trello, are very helpful. I will request my readers to share their favorite apps which help them to increase their productivity.

4. Develop a Daily Inspirational Routine

Every day is a new day friend. Don’t let yourself drowned in everyday routine. To live life fully daily inspirational routine can help us to keep our motivation high, always. As a woman, we have to play many roles which demand energy and focus. Keep 10 mins every day to revise your goals in life, reading inspirational articles and listening to motivational videos.

5.  Always speak up and stand for yourself

As a woman, we often keep things to ourselves and don’t share our exact thoughts regarding various topics. Either in office or home, when there is need to stand in our favor, generally a majority of womenfolk prefer to keep quiet. If we really want to excel in life this habit needs to be changed. Speak up for yourself. You have full right to ask what you deserve.

Keep revising these goals friends and keep climbing the ladder of success. I wish you best of happiness and success in your life journey. Cheers!

 

How to use every minute of the day productively?

1440 mins a day!time

Yes,  friends, we have 1440 mins a day to use and it all depends on  us, how we can use it constructively. Life is really getting busier for womenfolk, especially mothers who have to be a real multitasker to take care of her all responsibilities. Time flies and then we realize we could have managed it better, only if we were aware of it. If the woman is working then she has to schedule her time as per requirement by her job. If not working then she has to manage her time as per her family. It is all about how you can make these 1440 mins productive for yourself which  can help you to lead a happy life. Here are some tips, which can help you to manage your time better way-

1.The habit of listing–  Use your phone to make your lists as in present times the phone is always in hands. There are many apps in which you can make your lists. Download one such app and just list about all important matters in life.

2. Pomodoro technique–  The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method. The technique breaks work into intervals, traditionally 25 mins separated by short breaks.The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility. For working women, this method is really helpful as it helps in keeping social media distractions at the bay.

3. Work smarter, not harder– Mantra for the day should be Work smarter not harder. Instead of having a robotic approach for work, try to be thoughtful and always ask yourself  if something can be done more efficiently or eliminated altogether. Managing your time isn’t about squeezing as many tasks into your day as possible. It’s about simplifying how you work, doing things faster, and relieving stress.

4. Plan your day– A workday is busy, so you really have only one chance to plan what you’re going to do. Physically writing the list and prioritizing the sequence can be really helpful.The morning is the most important time to think “What have I got to do today?”

5. Be mindful of time spending over social media-  Time spent browsing Twitter or gaming or watching TV and movies can be one of the biggest drains on productivity. Once we become aware of how much time we spend on these activities we can control it.  Give a thought about how much time gets wasted every time you check your notification or browse through feeds. It is very important to remember that your day is more real than people’s update.

6. Do something during a waiting time- We tend to have a lot of time when we don’t do many things.Waiting rooms, lines at stores, waiting for the doctor, there are many such times which you can use productively.

Our goal should be to arrange our tasks in such a way that we are happily carrying all tasks. Usually, we get caught up so much in the busyness of work that we forget to enjoy our work.It’s all about clearing away space in life and  make time for people, play, and rest.

mehak_4

 

1.Please share with our readers’ little bit about yourself ?

I came to Singapore from Mumbai, India for a year to start the Hindi radio station. I was a science student but my first job was that of a radio presenter/announcer and I went on to do my journalism later.

2. So when did you venture into this venture and what inspired or motivated you to   take a plunge into this venture?

I was in the entertainment industry for more than 10 years.  I had been a Radio DJ most my life and had to do something to go a step further. Starting an event management firm was a natural choice. I could put all my experience, network, contacts, and skill set to use.

3. Can you share with us some of the challenges you faced during your initial days?

Every startup has many ups and downs. We had our share. Starting with getting the right people in the small budgets you have as a small business. For me, it was a learning curve where I learnt to see the business from the other side of the coin. From selling to marketing, executing, sustaining, it’s been quite a journey. The biggest challenge was to break the image of an RJ and establishing one of a serious Business Person.

4. So how do you balance your personal and professional life?

At home, I take as much help as I can from my lovely helper, parents, husband, parents-in-laws, friends. At work I got more hands to support. I tried becoming more focused. My priorities changed and I do have a limited social life.

5. What would you suggest to other aspiring women who want to venture out on their own?

Plan before you start. A Good Business Plan is  essential and has absolute faith in yourself even if anyone tells you, it is not possible or you can’t do it or it’s tough. Everything falls into place if you have the right attitude and approach.

6. Is there any person who has mentored/supported/inspired you?

Oh, I have many people who have mentored, supported, inspired me. Starting with my Mom, Dad, Husband, Daughter, My sisters, teachers, Ex Bosses, Partners, Associates, Colleagues. There is something to learn from every person I feel.

7. What do you have in the pipeline for your venture’s future development?

We have the plans to go big in the next year. Apart from bringing great entertainment events to Singapore, we plan to expand more in neighboring countries. As well as do more of Wedding Business.
