Based on some statistic data,  female infertility accounts for nearly 30% of total cases of infertility in couple and other 10% infertility cases are caused by the combination of factors from both partners. That makes female responsible for close to 40% or more of the total infertility cause.

Guest post by Lunch Express – Turmeric and its health benefits

I recently came across this website on Natural Healthcare reviews and found it extremely interesting and useful. I landed up on one post but I couldn’t control myself reading about one article after other.

I would like to introduce myself, I am the owner of Lunch Express which is a Lunch service provided to the people living

in bay area. My blog does not only talk about the service that we provide but also has lot of mouth watering recipes that we use in our business. At Lunch Express, we make sure that the food is cooked with 100% hygenie and is good for health.

Since I am in this business I am very much fond of spices and the benefits we can reap by using a particular spice. Therefore,  today I would like to discuss about my favorite spice HALDI/Turmeric (I call it my favorite as I use it in almost all of my recipes).

Turmeric is used in Indian since about 3000 years ago. In India, it is used as an important spice, a important ingredient of beauty products and also used in spiritual/ religious ceremonies. Turmeric powder should be chosen carefully as these days it is mixed with other coloring agents. It is very important to use fresh and good quality turmeric.

In India, we call Turmeric with different names, and haldi being the most common name used throughout India. It s a spice with bright yellow color and as a spicy fragrance. It tastes a little bitter. It is not only an important ingredient in Indian Recipes but also has great significance in Indian Religion.

  1. We use turmeric in almost all recipes as it impart a very good color to the foods. It is an important ingredient for curry powders. For example, at Lunch Express, we use Turmeric in Mushroom Curry, Pumpkin Curry, etc as well as in Dals/ Lentils like Dal Makhani
  2. Turmeric is known to be a great antiseptic.
  3. Turmeric mixed in with hot milk is very helpful to relax  the sprains and makes the bones stronger.
  4. Turmeric is great for skin also. In old times and even today people in India make a haldi paste/ Turmeric paste and it is considered that it will make the skin glow.
  5. Application of haldi/turmeric paste before bath is helpful to avoid any skin problems.
  6. Turmeric has great digestive properties, turmeric and salt taken with warm water helps in reducing acidity almost instantly.
  7. Turmeric is very good for liver and helps in avoiding the liver problems caused by excess alcohol.
  8. Turmeric is a good treatment for treating arthritis and relives inflammation of wounds.
  9. Turmeric is a great cholesterol reducing agent.

Best way to Store Turmeric
Turmeric needs to be stored in a cool, dry place and dark place. It should be placed away from humidity also. If turmeric is left open to air, it will loose its flavor and aroma.

Healthy Living

Nowadays, with the increasing of people’s living level, we pay more attention on our own health. As is known to all, a good health is the basic requirement for studying or working.

When we feel sick, it would be difficult and exhausted for us to concentrate doing what we plan to do. Staying in a healthy life style becomes more and more important in our daily life.

I am glad to get so many great articles from this website and learn about how to live in a healthy way. The blogger provide us lots of detail information about some diseases and how to protect ourselves from them. It is really helpful for us.

If we pay a little more attention in our daily life, we might better protect our health and stay away for bad diseases. There are large amount of information in the Internet for people to read and search. But how to take advantage of these information would be a good question to think over.

Health is important

Health is important

In today’s modern high speed living paces, people get lots of stress and pressure from work, study, or even family issues. They struggle with lots of problems to make themselves survive.

At the expense of earning money, some people stay late for long time work. Lack of sleep could cause lots of terrible problems in the body. Some people may forget to eat something or skip the meals when they are too busy. All these situations can cause large problems in our bodies if we ignore them.

I read a article on website before and it mentions most of the people are living in sub-health status nowadays. This kind of status really needs us to pay attention on it.

We would never know what would happen in the next second when the system in our body does not work well. In my own experience, I used to spend lots of time in doing research with professor and forgot to have meals on time. I though it should fine since I am young and healthy. But in fact, I got stomachache for a while after finish the research. It warned me to pay more attention on my health.

Live in Healthy Life

Live in Healthy Life

Right now, I always keep my mind to eating on time and taking good rests. When my body stay in a healthy status, I feel comfortable and energetic to finish my projects and work.

I believe people should make a good schedule in daily life and spend some time on doing exercises. Only in this we would be able to meet more challenges and beat our targets.

In my website, I also introduce some different culture and life style in some areas in China. Hope people will enjoy the introduction articles and take an amazing tour in China with me!

Six Tips On How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep…Naturally

Just like brushing your teeth is called oral hygiene, techniques to ensure that you get a more restful sleep are called sleep hygiene. Here are tips on how to awaken refreshed, when you want to get up.

Light Is Both Friend And Foe For Sleep

Light Is Both Friend And Foe For Sleep

1. Depending on the time of day, light can either be the enemy or the friend of sleep. For bedtime hours, make sure you have curtains or drapes covering your bedroom windows, if you are going to bed when it is still light outside. On the other hand, make sure to get some exposure to natural light during non-bedtime hours.

2. Don’t use your bedroom for any other purpose than sleep. Avoid converting a corner of your bedroom into an office area where you do homework, or pay bills, or vote for public health innovations. Your brain is smart enough to continue to associate an area of your home or apartment with those possibly stressful tasks.

3. Establish a regular routine. Try to go to bed at the same hour each time, and get up at the same time. Making a healthy habit depends on consistency over time. Avoid having a completely different weekend than weekday routine, if at all possible. It is hard for your body yo switch from one pattern to another.

4. Taking a siesta after lunch might seem like a pleasurable idea. Although that will take the edge off of your sleepiness, any nap might make it more difficult for you to fall asleep when your head hits the pillow.

5. Avoid ingesting substances that have a negative effect on smooth sleeping. Watch the sugar content in your food. The stimulant effects of both nicotine and caffeine are well established, so it is easy to understand why they do not promote restfulness. My hardest challenge is remembering that chocolate contains significant amounts of caffeine.

However, the stimulant effect of alcohol is not as immediately evident. That is because alcohol seems to enhance the first half of a bedtime, the falling asleep part. Where the difficulty comes up is in the second half of the bedtime. That is when the body begins to metabolize the alcohol, which acts as a stimulant. Thus, you wake up in the middle of the night, without completing your entire sleep cycle.

6. Don’t exercise vigorously right before bed. A better time is the morning or early afternoon. An exception is if you want to practice yoga. The deep breathing and the stretches work well before bedtime.

For additional information, your best source of advice is the National Sleep Foundation. I have found them knowledgeable, and dedicated to sleep hygiene information.
