At its core, the connection between Ayurveda and Women health is rooted in the balance and harmony of the female body. The ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda recognizes that each woman has unique needs, and through mindful practices such as yoga, diet and lifestyle, it seeks to empower women to embrace their natural cycles.Ayurveda works to achieve balance by addressing the three doshas, or subtle energies that govern our bodies. These doshas are known as vata, pitta and kapha. Each dosha is associated with the elements of wind, fire, and water respectively and serve to regulate the physical body and the mind. When our doshas are in balance, we are healthy, vibrant and radiating peace.At a deeper level, Ayurveda looks at the physiological changes that happen in the body during our menstrual cycle. On a vata dosha day, for example, a woman may experience feelings of restlessness or anxiety. On a pitta day, she may have an increased appetite or feel irritable. And on a kapha day, she may be proneto fatigue or have difficulty concentrating. By acknowledging these nuances and adjusting her diet and lifestyle accordingly, a woman can learn to identify which foods will best nourish and restore her balance during the different phases of her cycle. Ayurveda Priests or holistic health practitioners are also available to guide women in developing a meaningful relationship with their menstrual cycle. Through such practices as yoga, meditation, massage, and breathwork, these professionals help women understand not only their body’s response to their monthly fluctuations, but also how to intuitively respond to them. Ultimately, Ayurveda provides a safe, holistic space for women to honour and celebrate their cycle as an important part of their emotional and physical wellbeing. By becoming more mindful and aware of the subtle changes that occur each month from one dosha to another, women are able to learn how to better nourish and care for their bodies .

Based on my dietary habits and goals, what are some tailored nutrition strategies to support bone health, especially considering the risk of osteoporosis later in life?
Hi there, I hope you are well. The risk of osteoporosis increases due to drop in Estrogen. Tips to support bone health- - Include calcium rich foods to the diet. Dairy and dairy products, sesame seeds, green leafy vegetables, fortified foods, ragi, almonds, figs, chickpeas, black sesame seeds, etc. - Ensure to get enough Vitamin D because without it the calcium you eat won't get absorbed in the body. Get enough sunlight for at least 10-15mins daily. Include foods like lean meat ( fish, chicken), eggs, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, dairy products ( fortified with Vitamin D), etc. - For better bone health nutrients like Zinc, and magnesium are important as well. Nuts, seeds, dark chocolate ( once in 3-4 days), avocado, banana, leafy greens ,lean meat, beans, and dairy are good sources of the same. - Include weight training to improve bone density & strength. - Take supplements only if suggested by the doc. - Too much salt, caffeine, alcohol,soda, and red meat isn't great for bones. Take care
To support bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis, focus on consuming calcium-rich foods like dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified foods. Ensure an adequate intake of vitamin D through sources like sunlight, fatty fish, and fortified foods. Incorporate magnesium-rich foods such as nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Limit alcohol and caffeine intake as they can affect bone health. Regular weight-bearing exercise also helps strengthen bones.

I’ve heard about superfoods. Can you share some easy ways for me to incorporate them into my meals for added health benefits?
Hi there, I hope you are well. As a nutritionist, every food is a superfood because every food has got a purpose to serve and each food is likely to give you varied nutrients. Here's how you can make every food a super food :) - You can prepare a smoothie or mixed fruit bowl and add flaxseeds or chia seeds on top. - Add vegetables to your chilla/pancakes, you can prepare these chillas will millet flour or oats flour. - Prepare a mukhwas with different seeds and have it post lunch and dinner. - Include berries and bell-peppers in your daily routine, by using berries in your smoothies, over pancakes, etc, and bell peppers can be sauteed and added to salads, sprouts, rice, etc. - You can have green leafy vegetables at least twice a week as a soup, sabzi, in parathas, wraps, chilla, and much more. - You can grill or roast your chicken/fish, and have boiled egg salad/ or add eggs to rice, soup,have it as an omelette or sandwich. - You can prepare chickpeas/kidney beans salad, rice, & wraps.

I struggle with maintaining a healthy body image, especially when I see unrealistic beauty standards in the media. How can I focus on nourishing my body without obsessing over my appearance ?
Na_Dia8d
If you focus on social media then you won't be able to do justice to yourself. There are so many people out their giving different standards regarding every phase of life. You can't compete with everyone. Set your own goals and try to accomplish them.
So since you are comparing yourself with the people in media also compare the kind of team of experts they have access to , the time they devote to this and why they do it is they make the crores or lacs out of it hence comparison is a bad space to begin with hence drop it totally, having said that it’s good love yourself and get fit for yourself and to have realistic goals that you can achieve like 2 kg per month of weight loss by eating healthy and exercising, enough and timely rest and obsessing is a rajsik man ki sthiti , the mind state here is the key , remember sculpting any body into what you like it be is a process and the good part is you started and you l reach keep at it balance is the key to progress!!!! When you start a drive u don’t obsess over when will you reach you know you will u enjoy the journey too na same with fitness enjoy the journey and trust the process , ♥️Chittrah Kanal

I have a history of binge eating. What steps can I take to break this cycle and develop a healthier relationship with food?
Hii dear, firstly Identifying the root cause of your binge eating is crucial. Once you understand why you turn to food, you can begin addressing those underlying issues. Setting boundaries around your eating habits can help prevent impulsive behavior. Practicing mindfulness while eating encourages awareness of your body's hunger and fullness cues, promoting healthier eating habits.
Firstly, Practice mindful eating, identify triggers, seek support from a therapist or support group, and focus on balanced meals and regular eating patterns.

I often find myself reaching for unhealthy snacks when I'm stressed. What strategies can I use to curb emotional eating?
hina-8d
To curb emotional eating, try finding alternative ways to cope with stress such as practicing mindfulness, deep breathing exercises, going for a walk, or engaging in a hobby you enjoy. Keep healthy snacks readily available, and try to identify triggers for emotional eating so you can address them directly. Additionally, consider seeking support from friends, family, or a therapist to develop healthier coping mechanisms.
Anonymous-1d
You can practice meditation to calm yourself down .Also you can switch to healthier snack

I often feel pressured to eat a certain way or follow strict diet rules to fit in with my peers. Is there a way I can stay true to my own nutritional needs and preferences without giving in to external pressures?
If you force yourself into a diet, it might not be as effective as it could be. Additionally, it's not necessary to eliminate all foods; there are always alternatives available. I would suggest consulting a nutritionist who can help you create a personalized plan to manage your cravings and calorie intake
Anonymous7d
There's no need to feel pressured about it. You eat what you like and want to eat.

Seperti apa kanker itu?
Anonymous1d
Rasanya kanker adalah kompleks dan sulit dipahami secara universal karena pengalaman individu yang berbeda-beda. Bagi beberapa orang, kanker bisa menjadi seperti pertempuran tanpa henti yang menguras energi fisik, emosional, dan mental. Perasaan ketakutan, kecemasan, dan ketidakpastian sering kali menjadi bagian dari pengalaman ini. Rasanya seperti berada dalam kegelapan yang tidak pasti, di mana tiap langkah serasa dikelilingi oleh ketidakpastian dan ketakutan akan masa depan.
Anonymous1d
Kanker adalah kondisi di mana sel-sel abnormal tumbuh tanpa kontrol dan menyerang jaringan sehat dalam tubuh.
