7 Natural Remedies to Reduce Stretch Marks

Stretch marks occur in both the sexes when there is a sudden gain or loss in weight or some form of growth that stretches the skin. Visible red marks occur on the arms, breasts, back, abdomen, buttock, hip and thigh as the elastic fibres of our skin get torn from the weight changes. These marks primarily occur during puberty and pregnancy. They also occur in obese people as well as on bodybuilders. Over time, the scars fade from a dark colour to something paler.

Stick to the real thing: 10 natural foods to eat instead of margarine

Many government health organizations have advocated the use of margarine in cooking as a way to avoid the purported negative effects of butter on one’s health. But as it turns out, the reverse is actually true: margarine may in fact, cause more harm to the body than the product it was meant to replace. What is margarine? Margarine’s origins can be traced back to France, where it was developed by the chemist Hippolyte Mege-Mouries in response to an order by Emperor Napoleon III which called for the development of a cheap butter alternative that could be used by French workers and his armies in the Franco-Prussian war. But far from being the vegetable-based concoction we now know, Mege-Mouries’ original margarine consisted of beef tallow churned with milk. Keep reading at Food New...

WW International CEO talks wellness

When the pandemic hit in March, WW International quickly pivoted its entire operations online. The company, formerly known as Weight Watchers, trained 14,000 coaches and moved 30,000 workshops online in six days. That move under Mindy Grossman, who joined WW as CEO in 2017, is one of many that has helped the 57-year-old company react to the new demands of its members increasingly focused with wellness during a pandemic. WW had been expanding beyond weight loss before COVID-19, but the pandemic accelerated those plans. In November, it launched the latest enhancement for its program called myWW+, which offers deeper personalized insights into such areas as mindset and sleep. It also launched Digital 360, an online tool specifically for millennials that offers coaching services on fitness a...

Diet resolutions: 6 things to know about eating less meat and more plant-based foods

Many people are making changes to their diets to eat healthier or in a more environmentally friendly manner. They might choose to eat less meat, less sugar or even adopt an entirely vegan diet. A growing number, however, are choosing a plant-based diet that focuses on foods that come from plants, but may still include animal products, such as meat or cheese. American biochemist Thomas Colin Campbell coined the term “plant-based” in the 1980s to better explain his research on diet and nutrition. The term surged in popularity in 2016 when Campbell’s book The China Study was reprinted and alternative meat products such as Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger were launched. Since then, plant-based foods have taken the world by storm. They are everywhere: fast-food chains, restaurant menus...

How the wellness movement is influencing home design

If you’re looking for evidence of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on home owners around the world, the annual home design trends survey conducted by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is a good place to start. Not only did the popularity of the home office increase a whopping 39 per cent in the third quarter of 2020, the survey provided insights into several health and wellness categories that didn’t warrant inclusion in the 2019 survey: an exercise room or yoga space and a flex-space. These spaces were requested by 23 per cent and 43 per cent of architects’ clients respectively. Products for improving indoor air quality rose in popularity from 25 per cent to 39 per cent, and task lighting from 20 per cent to 27 per cent. Read more at Domain.

Cost-effective natural remedies to get rid of hardened earwax

Earwax, also known by the medical term cerumen, is a natural substance secreted by glands in the skin of the outer ear canal. This brown, orange, red, yellowish or gray waxy substance helps keep the ear canal lubricated, protect the ears from water, bacteria and fungi as well as prevent dust, dirt, and other debris from getting lodged deeper into the ear canal. Because the ear cleans itself, there is usually no need to use penetrative cleaning tools to get rid of earwax. However, problems can occur when there is a blockage of earwax, which occurs when your body produces too much earwax or when existing wax is pushed too far into your ear canal. Accumulation of excessive earwax may be caused due to narrowing of the ear canal resulting from infection or disease of the skin, bones, or conne...

Add natural immunity boosters to your diet

In today’s time, there is a greater need to support our health and well-being, primarily our immune system, at different stages of our life. These concerns regarding immunity have become more important, given the periodic outbreaks of infectious diseases such as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), and now the coronavirus pandemic. The key to building a good immune system is focusing on our gut health because 85 per cent of our immunity lies in the gut. Hence the health of our gut and billions of gut bacteria that lives within it is extremely vital. The food of our gut bacteria is fibre, so when we eat more fibre, which is only found in plant foods, we improve the health of our gut and thereby boosts our immunity. I am sharing with you a few...
