Expresso Health Updates Of The Week

You are listening to the Expresso Health Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Health, brought to you by The Indian Express.
Let’s begin today’s bulletin with news on Anushka Sharma. Emulating an athlete on screen is no easy feat and comes with its own set of pros and cons. Anushka Sharma, who is currently shooting Chakda Xpress, gave her Instagram family a peek at her struggle. Taking to the platform, the actor shared a mirror selfie in which she can be seen wearing black ‘compression tights’. Athletes wear compression tights, which apply mechanical pressure to the body, to increase blood circulation, explained Varun Rattan, co-founder, of The Body Science Academy. He said, “Unlike loose fitted pants and shirts, these are designed to compress the leg and arm muscles to help move blood away from the limbs back to the heart.”
“Some new mothers worry that their bellies may become “loose and flabby after delivery”. While slow and gradual recovery through diet and nutrition is recommended, some core strengthening exercises can also help burn belly fat, especially around the tummy.
Actor and nutritionist Bhagyashree Dassani took to Instagram to share some effective exercises that can help if done on a daily basis. She captioned her post, “New mothers are worried that their belly will become loose after delivery. Core strength is important for most of our daily activities too”.
According to the actor, reduction of fat happens mainly by eating correctly and making sure that your gut is working optimally. Combining diet and fitness can help one optimally reach their target.

“Meanwhile, the kidneys are responsible for sifting through chemicals, our waste products, and for eliminating excess water from our bodies. When the kidneys do not function properly, patients may need to undergo dialysis treatment or even consider a transplant in severe cases.
According to Dr Sujit Chatterjee, diabetes and hypertension are the most well-known reasons for renal illness in India. He said, “Keeping up with kidney well-being requires early location and treatment of these issues, and being proactive about seeing your doctor consistently”. The doctor added that polycystic kidney disease (PKD) can impact people of different ages, races and identities. “Both men and women are impacted by this condition. PKD is quite possibly one of the most incessant acquired conditions.

“Cinnamon or dalcheeni is widely used to flavour desserts and is also an essential ingredient used to make the traditional garam masala, used in most Indian kitchens. Dieticians Kajal Wattamwar and Bushra Qureshi said, “While it is added in food for its flavour, cinnamon also has tons of other benefits which many people are unaware of. The photochemical components of cinnamon, such as the volatile and phenolic compounds and chromium, are mainly responsible for its anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-tumour, anticancer, and antihyperglycemic effect”.
They said, “Cinnamon is a commonly-known ‘natural insulin sensitiser’. Multiple studies have shown how cinnamon helps in bringing down blood sugar levels. Cinnamon has proven its effectiveness in reducing fasting blood sugar as well as the HOMA-IR levels,”

“In other news, celebrities have been impressing us with their aerial yoga moves, best described as a hybrid yoga workout that helps the body get fit by defying gravity. Using a hammock for support, this form of exercise combines the best.

Actor Hina Khan, too, shared a glimpse of her acing an inversion on the hammock as she challenged her body’s balance. She wrote, “Hang in there darling, you’ve got this! Breathe!”
Aerial yoga is beneficial in releasing the tension, and also getting rid of back pain. Himalayan Siddha Akshar, founder, of Akshar Yoga Research, said, “You can use a combination of your arm and core strength to lift and flip yourself over and enjoy many acrobatic flows”.

“Meanwhile, just like our bodies, our eyes also endure strain and stress — due to excess screen time, reading, or even driving — and need to be cared for. If not done, it can result in redness, discomfort, watery eyes, and even dark circles. These, coupled with exhaustion and lack of sleep can further aggravate the problem. According to Dr Madhuri Agarwal, “the skin around the eyes is the most delicate and the first area to show signs of fatigue and ageing.”
While regularising your sleep time and restricting screen exposure is essential, you can also count on a few lifestyle measures to keep dark circles at bay. It is often important to take care of your blood circulation around the eyes.

“When discussing the various physical and mental struggles that an athlete endures, both on and off the field, little attention is paid to how female sportspersons manage menstruation during their intense training sessions and matches. Their monthly cycles often expose them to several complications — physical and psychological — but the issue, impacting almost the entire female sports ecosystem, is usually brushed under the carpet.
Veteran Indian Cricketer, Jhulan Goswami said, “I think that [menstruation] is the most challenging part as a female athlete and I think all the athletes have faced all the same kind of stuff and if it is during computation time, it was a huge challenge to compensate for that area and concentrate on your job,”

“We end this bulletin with news on actor Shamita Shetty. Shamita just like her elder sister Shilpa Shetty Kundra also enjoys a good workout. As such, the Zeher actor was recently seen working out with some blocks, strikes, and kicks.

She wrote on her Instagram, “Deal with your Monday blues my way! A combination of blocks, strikes, and kicks in this sequence……Shadow fights the blues away! Full body workout!”
According to fitness experts, full body workouts help torch more calories. Kishlay Sajwan, mentor and lead at Level Up fitness centre in Delhi, said that full-body exercises help tone the whole body, and improve cardiovascular endurance, core strength, and overall athleticism.”
