Meditation During Pregnancy

Image
Meditation is an integral part of yoga. It aims to help you achieve a harmonious balance between your body and mind.

Meditation relaxes your mind and eliminates feelings of restlessness. Meditation improves your concentration and creates an awareness about the power of your body.

Meditation can be safely practiced in all stages of pregnancy, even the last trimester when the growing body may hinder you from completing asanas or other exercises.

While you can practice meditation throughout your pregnancy, it is best to follow a prenatal yoga class to choose the postures and breathing techniques most suited to relax your growing body without straining your back or abdominal muscles. The type of meditation you prefer may depend on your personal beliefs and the time available.

The Importance of Fiber in our Diet

Image
There are many benefits of healthy fiber for digestive health. Studies show that fiber is important for people of any age, and it helps treat and prevent a number of conditions -- ranging from severe acid reflux (known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD) to inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) to obesity  and diverticulitis.

Here’s how healthy fiber helps digestive health -- and why you need to get more of it.

Regularity. Fiber, particularly insoluble fiber, can help people prevent constipation. It bulks up stools and keeps food moving through the digestive tract.Healthy bacteria. You might have heard of probiotoics -- healthy bacteria that live in your intestines. Some types of soluble fiber are considered a prebiotic -- a fuel that feeds these healthy bacteria and increases their numbers. What do these bacteria do? They boost digestive health. And some studies suggest that they might have far-reaching effects, perhaps improving the immune response and preventing allergy develo…

Replace Chips and Cookies with Fiber Rich Popcorns

Plain popcorn provides whole grains, fiber and antioxidants.

Whole grains, fiber and antioxidants are wrapped up in this simple snack. Be careful though. Smothering this naturally healthy snack in salt, fat, sugar and flavorings turns natural goodness into junk food. Popcorn is naturally a whole grain and therefore provides the healthy benefits derived from the nutrients in every component of the whole grain. Popcorn provides about 4 grams of dietary fiber for every 4 cups of popped corn. An adequate fiber intake not helps you to stay regular but may also lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce blood cholesterol and lower your risk of type 2 diabetes by regulating blood sugar. The antioxidant concentration of popcorn is much higher than anticipated. In fact, the study found the concentration of polyphenols in popcorn surpassed that of most fruit. This nutrient was found within the hull and so popcorn without the hull may not contain this healthy antioxidant. Polyphenols po…
