Diet Foot: struggling with edema and cellulitis
October 27, 2011
Modern woman usually spends a lot of time in high heels. This can not but affect the condition of the feet. To help your feet to cope with heavy loads, it is necessary to adhere to certain rules in the food, delivering food to all the substances necessary for proper metabolism.
What threatens our feet
At long stay on his feet, especially on the high heels, can suffer not only the legs, but also the spine, and therefore all the internal organs, as it is the backbone keeps our body in the right position and does not compress the internal organs. With increased load on the legs often suffer from musculoskeletal system and blood vessels.
The increased load on the musculoskeletal system may result in a violation of the power in the joints, and they will begin a degenerative (metabolic) disorders that can result in osteoarthritis, severe pain and dysfunction. If the capture process and spine, it shows signs of osteoarthritis - the same degenerative changes, but in the spine, it is manifested by severe pain along the nerves extending from the spine.
A consequence of increased stress on the foot may be flat - pain arise as a walking or just standing.
No less significant changes may affect the blood vessels and mainly veins. If a man remains in a vertical position, in particular, still, it is a prerequisite to the blood stagnates in the veins of the legs, scrambling toward the heart. Stagnation of blood causes its increased clotting and thrombus formation, which in turn causes thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the walls of the veins in their occlusion), swelling and ugly branching patterns of surface veins.
Therefore, to our feet as long as possible and have been served at the same time beautiful, they require special care, including diet.
What you need to have to keep your feet healthy
It is best suited for this purpose, a balanced diet that is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for all people, leading a healthy lifestyle. WHO recommends eating as many fruits and vegetables (in unlimited quantities), the daily diet should be at least five different types of them.
Fresh fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of antioxidants

That destroy the free radicals formed in the course of biochemical reactions in our body. That free radicals destroy the cells of the body and lead to phenomena such as osteoarthritis and low back pain

. A large amount of vitamin C in fruits and vegetables strengthen the walls of blood vessels and prevent the development of varicose veins. In some vegetables and fruits contain a lot of potassium (potatoes, bananas), which promotes the excretion of sodium and with it excess fluid

And, hence, swelling. Useful and an element such as magnesium, with potassium it will strengthen the heart muscle and skeletal muscle, including muscles of the legs.
For strong bones Calcium is very important, because with age the bones become less calcium, which is why the bones become more brittle. To cover the needs for calcium, WHO recommends dairy products. Dairy products are valuable as their animal protein, which is used in the construction of human cells.
Fats are also needed for proper metabolism. Animal fats get people to lean meat and fish, milk and dairy products, and vegetable can be used for cooking and salads. If vegetable fat is insufficient, the disturbed metabolism of cholesterol and it begins to be deposited in the blood vessels of atherosclerotic plaques.
At the same time from the diet should be eliminated fat meat, weakness, buns, roasted, salted and smoked dishes. Healthy people can afford to eat spicy food sometimes - it can help improve circulation.
To prevent thrombophlebitis recommended introduction of the diet of certain types of fatty fish, such as sardines or salmon - the fish contains high amounts of omega-3, which are actively involved in metabolism

and prevent thrombosis.
It is of great importance and adequate fluid intake - that water from the body displays all the harmful products of metabolism, which accelerates the aging process, including the bones, muscles, joints and blood vessels, which inevitably affects the condition and appearance of the legs. Drinking need at least one and a half liters of water a day, at a young age can afford to drink up to two liters a day.
To legs were (and decorated too) long, does not require any special diets, you just need to eat properly.
Diet for bradycardia - what's missing heart?
May 22, 2014
Diet for bradycardia is not strictly specific. Its main principles are healthy food
Healthy eating - do not limit yourself to eating
and the use of heart-diet products. It is also important for the control of body weight and avoiding harmful habits: smoking and drinking.
What should be the health food bradycardia
No strict diets when it is not necessary to comply with bradycardia. But should adhere to certain principles. The fact that bradycardia (heart rate reduction - HR) is not a disease. This is one of the symptoms of the heart muscle (myocardium) inflammatory or metabolic-dystrophic character.
In order to minimize the burden on the already injured myocardium should monitor their weight, so the diet should be excluded products such as fatty meats, dairy products, high fat and carbohydrate (all sweets including sodas, cakes and so on). It is not necessary to use as much fried, smoked and canned products. All dishes are slightly better nedosalivat.
The diet of people with bradycardia should be present lean meat, sea fish (it can be fat), seafood, dairy products, cheese, low-fat hard cheeses, cereals (buckwheat, oats, rice, corn), vegetable soups, borscht, stews and fresh vegetables, fruits, dried fruits. Preference is better to give the products prepared by methods of cooking, stewing and steaming. Meals should be frequent (5-6 times a day) and a fraction (small portions).
In order to avoid the toxic effects on the myocardium, do not smoke or drink alcohol. The introduction of foods that are useful for the heart muscle, will further strengthen the work of the heart muscle (myocardium).
Nutrition for bradycardia - vital fats
Since the source of energy for the heart muscle in addition to carbohydrates and fats are, their introduction into the diet required
. It is particularly important to use the fats that contain well-absorbed by the human fatty acid
. Such fats include polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)
. All are divided into two main families - Omega-3 and Omega-6
. Omega-3 PUFA compared with omega-6 is more unsaturated
. PUFA Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids that the human body can not synthesize their own, so they must come from food
. Omega-3 fatty acids - is eicosapentaenoic, docosahexaenoic, alpha-linolenic acid, they normalize metabolic processes involved in the synthesis required for cell metabolism of biologically active substances
. They inhibit the development of atherosclerosis have cardioprotective (protects myocardium from various actions), and antiarrhythmic effect, regulate inflammatory processes in the body and immunity
. In addition, omega-3 PUFA and omega-6 are components of cell membranes and a power source
Omega-3 PUFA in large numbers are found in fish oil. And since fish oil
Fish oil - so whether it is useful to think?
is produced from marine fish, the latter should be administered in the diet of people suffering from bradycardia. The diet should be present as low-fat and fatty marine fish. A lot of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in flaxseed oil. Omega-6 PUFAs contained in corn and sunflower oil.
Nutrition for bradycardia - without potassium, magnesium and calcium heart muscle can not fully work.
Potassium called cardiac vitamin, as it is the principal intracellular cation in cardiac muscle cells. Potassium is found in these plant foods: baked potatoes, fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, squash, pumpkin, cabbage, watermelons, melons, bananas
Bananas: the benefits and harms health
, Orange, red currants, cranberries, dried fruits (dried apricots, figs, prunes, raisins), almonds
Use almond: Fertility symbol of peace
, Pine nuts, peanuts. There potassium in foods of animal origin such as liver, fish, cheese. It should nevertheless be borne in mind that potassium hinders heart pulse, so the 2-3 degree heart block eat too many foods that contain it, not worth it.
Magnesium is involved in many enzymatic reactions associated with the assimilation of energy by cells of the myocardium. It is necessary for normal functioning of the myocardial cells and their interaction with the extracellular space. Magnesium is involved in controlling balance of intracellular potassium. Magnesium is found in wheat bran, wheat germinated seeds, sunflower seeds, including pumpkin, flax seeds, sesame, walnuts and cedar, lentils, beans, cocoa.
Equally important is to maintain the myocardial contractility and calcium. The main source of calcium are dairy products. They must be present in the daily diet of people suffering from bradycardia.
Diet for bradycardia is not mandatory, but it is still worth it to stick.
