The second deep breathing exercise of yoga is Ceaseless deep breathing exercise (Kapalabhati) .

 Kapalabhati is a technique of breathing exercise used specifically to clean the nostril upto the tiny tubes of the lungs. If we have much mucus in the passages of air or feel the tension and fillings in the trunk it is often useful to practice breathe quickly of deep breathing exercise of yoga. In this practice of deep breathing exercise of yoga, we breathe deliberately more quickly and employ at the same time only deep breathing exercise, and not the breathing exercise of trunk. In Kapalabhati technique of deep breathing exercise of yoga, the breathing exercise is short, fast, and strong. We use the lungs as pump, creating so much the pressure while they expel the air which any loss is removed from the passages of air, of the lungs upwards by the nostrils. Kapalabhati technique of deep breathing exercise of yoga is a good yoga breathing exercise to make when we feel heavy or misty in the head.

To thwart the accumulation of carbon dioxide in blood in the whole body, this deep breathing exercise yogic ceaseless of deep breathing exercise of yoga helps to eliminate it more quickly, so that the composition of blood still becomes normal.

The Kapalabhati yoga technique of deep breathing exercise of yoga consists sitting in convenient posture having the relaxed the wall of the abdomen. Sit in comfortable posture on ground or chair while keeping spine of body, neck and head erect. Start exhales rapidly and abruptly with some force with a sudden contraction of the abdominal wall just below the navel. By suddenly pulling the abdominal wall towards the back in this manner pressures exerted inside the abdominal cavity which makes the diaphragm to rise slightly, make an impact on the lungs, and cause a forced exhalation. The abdominal wall is then relaxed again so that the diaphragm comes down, causing vacuum inside the thoracic cavity. This vacuum is filled by air entering into the lungs. Then the abdominal wall is immediately contracted again, bringing about another forced exhalation which is followed by inhalation due to the relaxation of the wall of the abdomen. It is important to note that in this process inhalation is a passive act but not so exhalation. This is the exact opposite of what happens in normal breathing exercise where inhalation requires application of force for contracting the muscles of the chest and exhalation happens without applying any force, but due to the elastic recoil of the lungs. One goes on repeating the process of forced exhalations for two to five minutes. When one gets tired the process may become difficult and the rhythm may be lost. Here one should stop. 

All these exhalations done repeatedly in this way constitute one round of Kapalabhati of deep breathing exercise of yoga. The following points should be noted while practicing incessant deep breathing exercise (Kapalabhati ). Each exhalation should be sudden and having deep pressing in naval region and not prolonged. While inhaling there should be no effort to suck the air in lungs. There should be a fixed rhythm in the process of exhalation and inhalation.

Contraction of the abdominal wall should be moderate and not vigorous, although it is-sudden. Few diseased people find it very difficult to synchronize the movement of the abdomen with exhalation and inhalation. They contract the abdominal wall while inhaling. This should be carefully avoided. It should be comfortably and rhythmically performed in a non-stop process. In between, resting for a minute may be taken and as and when required. In kapalabhati of deep breathing exercise of yoga, breathing exercise is slightly deeper so that the quantity of air respired each time become more. Thus the lung ventilation per minute in kapalabhati increases many times. This helps rapid elimination of carbon dioxide from the blood and increases of oxygen in it the respiratory system. Because of this it is observed that kapalabhati, helps to practice other exercises of deep breathing exercise of yoga more easily. It also cleans the nostril system. This helps the fast elimination of carbon dioxide of the blood and the increases in the oxygen of him the respiratory system. For this reason one observes it that the kapalabhati of deep breathing exercise of yoga, assistance to more easily practice other exercises of deep breathing exercise of yoga.

~*~HOW TO Stop Body Odor Naturally with Baking Soda~*~

HOW TO Stop Body Odor Naturally with Baking Soda 

Millions of people suffer from embarrassing body odor. Fortunately, you don't need to spend a lot to solve the problem. Natural, 'green', cheap baking soda can solve your personal odor issue!


Instructions 

Step 1 - DEODORANT

If your deodorant isn't able to stop body odor effectively for you, you don't have to buy a more expensive brand. Simply apply a slightly heavier coat of deodorant than normal. Then, apply baking soda on top of that layer, like you were applying baby powder. Be careful not to inhale baking soda. It's not toxic, but any lung contaminate can result in respiratory problems. 

Step 2 - BAD BREATH

Try adding baking soda to your toothpaste, or purchase a toothpaste with baking soda as an ingredient. You can also mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with your mouthwash and use it to swish and gargle. 

Step 3 - HAIR

Your hair traps odors and oils produced by your scalp. In fact, more body heat is released through your head than through any other part of your body. These oils not only look bad, but carry an unpleasant odor too. 

Try adding a touch of baking powder to your grooming routine. In the shower, after washing and conditioning, mix a small amount of baking soda (2 tbs approximately) with enough water to create a paste. Apply this paste to your hair and massage in thoroughly. Allow to sit for 3 minutes, then rinse. Your hair may feel slick even after rinsing. This is because a small amount of baking soda will cling to your hair, helping to absorb odors throughout your day.

***NOTE*** If you are in a situation where showering is not an option, baking soda can be applied directly to your hair and combed through for a similar effect. Do not mix the baking soda with any water. Again, be careful not to inhale baking soda. 

Step 4 - SHOES

You are probably aware that baking soda is a common additive to innersoles and other shoe inserts. However, you don't need to purchase the insert to have the same odor fighting effects.

Pour enough baking soda into your shoes to coat the inner sides. Spread the baking soda on all inner sides of the shoe as though you were coating a baking pan with flour. Allow soda several hours to absorb odors. Then, turn shoe upside down over a trash bin and pat with your hand to remove excess powder. Repeat as often as you need to keep up with foot odor. 

Step 5 - LAUNDRY

Adding baking soda to your laundry will help stop body odor. This method works best with natural fibers like cotton, denim blue jeans, linen. 

WASH METHOD ~ Wash clothes as normal with regular detergent, but add 1/4 cup baking soda to the wash.

DRYER METHOD ~ Wash clothes as usual. Moisten a clean washcloth, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Add the washcloth to the load in your dryer. Dry as usual. ***This method works best for ongoing prevention of body odor*** 

Step 6 - BATH


There are many benefits to adding soaking in a a baking soda bath. It will help relieve skin irritation, moisten your skin, relieve itch. It will also help fight odor.

Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a comfortably warm bath. Soak. 

Step 7 - HAND ODOR

If you are one of many people who find that any odor your hands come in contact with is difficult to wash away, baking soda is the answer. Baking soda is highly effective in removing unpleasant smells like onion and garlic. Simply wet your hands, apply baking soda liberally, scrub, rinse. Odor is gone.

Tips & Warnings

- If skin irritation develops, discontinue use of baking soda.

- If you have existing skin conditions, consult your doctor before using baking soda in any of the methods described in this article.

- Do not expose eyes to baking soda.

- Do not inhale baking soda.

~*~Regular Health Mistakes~*~

Regular Health Mistakes

All of us make little health mistakes that cause damage to our bodies in the long run - simply because we are unaware we are doing something wrong. Here are some of the most common mistakes made by many of us.

Crossing our legs 

Do you cross your legs at your knees when sitting? Although we may believe that this is the lady-like elegant way to sit, sitting this way cuts down circulation to your legs. If you don"t want varicose veins to mar the beauty of your legs and compromise your health, uncross your legs every time you realise you have one knee on top of the other. The best way to sit is to simply place both legs together on the floor, balancing your weight equally. If you feel like changing position, instead of crossing your legs, simply move both legs together to one side. As an alternative, you could also consider crossing your legs loosely at the ankles. This is a classically elegant way to sit, and is far better for your legs and your health than sitting with your legs crossed at your knees.

Not changing our toothbrush 

How often do you change your toothbrush? Most of us wait until most of the bristles have either fallen off, or are in such bad shape that we"d be embarrassed to pull out our brush in public. However, since not many of us need to pull out our brush in public, we carry on with our frayed one until we lose it. Replace your toothbrush often. Damaged bristles can harm the enamel, and don"t massage your gums well. If you find brushing your teeth a pain like I do, but know you must do it, you might as well be doing it right. Imagine going through the annoyance of brushing your teeth twice a day only to find out that you"re damaging your enamel every time you clean your teeth. Also, use a brush with soft bristles unless your dentist has advised otherwise.

Eating out often 

There are oils that are high in cholesterol, and oils that cause little harm and are better for your heart. However, no matter how light the oil is, it is never a good idea to eat too much of it. Avoid fried foods.Remember that in all probability your favourite Indian food restaurant throws a huge, HUGE chunk of butter in a tiny bowl of dal. Rita, who worked in the kitchen of a 5 star hotel, was shocked when she saw the cook chop a 500gm butter slab in half, and throw half into a Paneer Makhani dish. No wonder the customers left licking their fingers. And no wonder they felt so stuffed and heavy afterwards. Limit outdoor eating unless you know that you"re getting served light and healthy food. 

Skipping breakfast 

Never, ever skip breakfast. Remember, when you wake up in the morning it"s been around 10-12 hours since your last meal. Your body needs food now, more than at any other time. Eat a heavy breakfast. You will then be busy through the day, and the calories will get expended quickly. If you are trying to diet, eat a light dinner. Here are some more common health mistakes we make. Being informed and making a few changes can help make us feel a whole lot better.

High heels 

High heels sure look great, but they're murder for your back. This however doesn't mean you should steer clear of stilettos. Wear them, but not when you know you will be walking around a lot. Wear them when going out for lunch or dinner - when the only walking you will be doing is to your car, to the table, and back. Avoid high heels when you are going somewhere on foot. If you are constantly tempted to wear your heels, take a good look at your flats. Is there something about them you dislike? Invest in a new pair of beautiful flats or shoes with a low heel. Buy something you love, that you will enjoy wearing. If possible, get a matching bag. You will then enjoy your flats as much as you do your heels.

Sleeping on a soft bed 

You don't have to sleep on the floor be kind to your back, but do make sure you have a firm mattress. Although a mattress on springs is soft and lovely to sink into, it's bad for your back. If you already have an old bed with springs, you don't need to invest in a new one - simply get a thick wooden plank put over the springs, and place the mattress on the plank. Similarly, if your mattress is old and lumpy, throw it out and get a new one. Your neck and your back will thank you. The same rule applies to sofas. If you will be spending hours on a sofa, get a firm yet comfortable one. Sofas you completely sink into are not the best idea.

Pillows 

No matter how comfortable sleeping with ten cushions is, have pity on your neck and resist. Sleep with one pillow, and make sure it is not too thick. If your pillow gets lumpy, discard it and go for a new one. Get a thin pillow if you sleep on your stomach, and something a little thicker if you sleep on your back, to give your neck adequate support


Not exercising 

So all of us know we should exercise more, but many of us don't. This is a health mistake we consciously make! And why is that? Simply because we refuse to admit the damage we are causing to our bodies by not working out. A number of people only start working out once they've experienced a warning signal. Don't wait for a heart attack to strike before you decide to opt for a lifestyle change. Make the change now. You don't need to train for the marathon to be in top shape. Half an hour of brisk walking three to four times a week will make a world of difference to your health. You could then increase this to forty minutes, four times a week - and you're all set. If you haven't exercised for a week, you're making a mistake

~*~"Importance of having Breakfast" ~*~


"Importance of having Breakfast" 

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice on not to skip breakfast! 

Healthy living 

For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You've heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast. 

Why? 


Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks between 6: 00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being
between 8: 00a.m. and 10:00a.m.What mechanism within the body could account for this significant jump in sudden death in the early
morning hours? 

We may have an Answer.


Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to
cholesterol or laque buildup in the artery lining. It is in the morning hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these internal blood clots at the greatest frequency. 

However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes. Studies performed at Memorial University in St.Johns, Newfoundland found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk. So if you skip breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately in light of this research. Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as oatmeal or Bran Flakes, along with six ounces of grape juice or orange juice, and perhaps a piece of fruit. This simple plan will keep your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from forming, and perhaps head off a potential Heart Attack or stroke. So never ever skip breakfast

~*~Amazing fruit....Bananas~*~


Bananas...


  Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!

  This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

  Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

  Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

  But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit.

  It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.


  Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

  PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

  Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

  Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

  Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

  Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

  Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

  Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

  Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritat ion.

  Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

  Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

  Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

  Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

  Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

  Smoking & Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effe cts of nicotine withdrawal.

  Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

  Strokes: According to research in "The New England Journal of Medicine, 'eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

  Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

  So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods aroun d So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the doctor away!"

  PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit.

~*~Who says diabetics can't eat well?~*~

Who says diabetics can't eat well?
 
 
Maintaining a healthy diet is important for everyone, but crucial for people with diabetes. Following a diet that meets the 
strict nutritional requirements of diabetics and does not overshoot on calories is critical. 
 
 
At the same time, having diabetes does not mean you lose your head on calorie counting and bid farewell to delicious food. 
Here are some yummy meal options that are safe, quick to prepare, and great to taste.
 
 
Beverage list
 
Choose from the following for each of your meals.
Club soda 
Diet soda 
Coffee with an artifical sweetener like 'Equal' 
Sugar-free drink mix, like a sugar-free strawberry crush 
Tea with no/less sugar 
Kokam juice with no added sugar 
Sugar-free tonic water
 
 
Avoid canned or even fresh juices, especially those with added sugar.   
 
 
Breakfast
 
Dr Desai a practicing pathologist and medical officer at IIM Ahmedabad, who also serves as the selector and coach for the Indian roller-skating team, says, "The best breakfast option for a diabetic is a plate full of fruit. Include fruit such as apples, peaches, 
bananas and even strawberries, and eat a stomach full. You can even have a soup if an urge for salts arises. Once in a 
while, you can have milk with cereal that has no additional sugar. Muesli is also an option."
  
 
Some more options: 

Poached egg on toast 
Tomato and cucumber salad 
Bread topped with pineapple slices 
Whole-grain ready-to-eat cereal 
Almond milk 
Bananas
 
 
These must be alternated though, and none consumed on a daily basis. However, fruits are safe and ideal for repetition. 
  
 
Meals
 
For lunch, Dr Desai wholeheartedly recommends salad, soups or a light oil-and-fat- free veg curry with whole wheat 
chapattis. He says, "For lunch, a salad and soup is ideal. However, how you make it is also important. Do not add high 
calorie dressings or sugar-rich products. Otherwise, the purpose of eating a salad will be defeated. The chapattis should 
not be smothered with butter or ghee either. The whole idea is to monitor the intake of calories so the blood sugar does 
not shoot up." He shares two soup recipes. 
  
 
Chicken-Rice Soup
 
~Ingredients
250 grams chicken pieces, small
1/2 cup salad leaves, chopped
1/2 cup rice, uncooked
1 small onion, cut into four
1 cup carrots, diced
? cup capsicum, diced 
Bay leaf (Tej Patta in Hindi)
A pinch of pepper 
 
 
 
~Method
 
Simmer the chicken in water with the salad leaves, onion, two pinches of salt and tej patta for one hour over low heat. 
Drain the chicken broth and retain it in a separate container. Place the pieces in a clean plate and debone the chicken. 
Chop it into small pieces. Combine the broth, chicken, rice, capsicum and carrots in a saucepan and continue cooking for 
30-40 minutes or until the rice is tender. Makes three servings
 
 
 
Fruit Fusion 
 
~Ingredients
 
1 cup fresh grapes, chopped into halves
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced into four
1 cup fresh peaches, finely chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups low-fat yogurt
 
 
~Method

Mix grapes, strawberries, and peaches. Mix gently. Sprinkle brown sugar over fruit. Top with yogurt. Cover and refrigerate 
for about 2 hours. Gently stir fruit to mix it and serve in pudding/ice cream bowls. This makes three servings.

By carefully selecting what you eat, including a good balance of the right kinds and amounts of fats and carbohydrates, 
you can help improve your health. The bottom line is you must eat carefully, eat right and eat sensibly. Do not starve or 
deprive yourself. At the same time, don't over-indulge either.
