IMG_2267I know … I know… all titles these days sound similar with 3 things to do, 5 steps to consider and …. you know…so on and so forth.

But as a woman who has recently embarked on the journey to motherhood, I can say with experience that these 3 things really helped me where I am today… a contented woman who is loved and cherished and so ready to be a mother.

1) Marry the one: Sounds easy but requires deep soul-searching . Know yourself, truly, madly , deeply. Understand who you truly are as a person, spend time nurturing yourself into a good human being. Only a good human being attracts another to itself. (more…)

Dr. Anand Dhruva is a MD and is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF. Dr. Dhruva is on the Hematology-Oncology faculty at UCSF, and is also a graduate of the distant-learning Fellowship Program in Integrative Medicine from the University of Arizona.

Why do we really fall ill? Is diet, exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle sufficient for protecting ourself from illnesses or life threatening diseases? Ever wondered if there are factors beyond these that might be affecting your health and well being. I have seen friends and family members who have blamed themselves for their illnesses. And this blame does not help in the recovery process. Though diet and lifestyle is a major factor attributing to good health but let us not limit ourselves to this notion.

“ Everyone is pregnant with death. Everyone needs it. Near death we all have the same chance. We all have the chance to become our total selves.” (Duff, 1993) But why wait till the last days of our life to become our true self.

How many different diet plans have you heard of or read in the past where you’ve been asked to eliminate carbohydrates from your diet? I am sure plenty. Right? And, when you did eliminate it, what did you experience? The loss of energy and general lethargy accompanied with several other health issues. Just because I said ‘ Love your carbs’, does not mean you can now go binge on that pizza for dinner tonight!

You may wonder what the hell does nutrition have anything to do with my brain health! This blog will surely give you a renewed perspective just like the readings on this subject did for me…

As most of us know, the brain is made up of fatty acids, water and minerals and hence we could possibly conclude that the foods we eat affect what we think and how we think. In recent years, enough scientific study has been done that suggests that food can help to treat and prevent depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer and ADHD disease. (more…)
