Bariatric surgery blocked in the UK till one attend weight management program

E-mail Print PDF

 

A sensible and good news in the direction to fight against Obesity. Since April 2013, NHS England has stipulated that all patients must first attend tier three weight management  program for up to two years before they can be referred for bariatric surgery.

Though the intensive weight loss programme which patients must go through before they can be referred for bariatric surgery are not available in all areas such as parts of  Nottinghamshire until August next year.

Not only weight loss surgery is unnecessary but also it deprives human being a normal life. People after surgery would never be able to enjoy their food ever for the rest of their life whether it is Christmas or they are on their holidays or their child birthday or any other festival.

List of problems and complications after the weight loss surgery operation are endless as one may get additional problems such as Hernia, Internal Bleeding, Swelling of the skin around the wounds, etc. I wonder how many weight loss surgeons advice about weight loss surgery to their own family members.

An Indian yoga teacher Krishna Sharma (Krishna Prem Krishnananda) in Goa has been arrested for allegedly raping 33-year-old German tourist.

Krishna Sharma, a 36-year-old is from India and based in Norway (at yoga center Yoga Shakti) was arrested in the morning at the airport as he was trying to leave, police inspector Tushar Vernekar said.

According to Vernekar, the pair had met at Anjuna beach in North Goa for a party. The accused afterwards offered to drop the woman at her guesthouse about 15 kilometres  away, where she says he raped her.

Krishna Sharma and the woman were known to each other as some friends of hers, were undergoing a yoga course conducted by Sharma at his yoga centre, Yoga Shakti.

Police said an investigation was under way. A survey in April found that the number of foreign female tourists visiting India had dropped by 35 percent over a three month period following last December's fatal gang-rape of a Delhi student and other sexual crimes.

E-mail Print PDF

Generally people who sleep less increase there chances of gaining weight and become obese.

People who stay awake till late in the evening generally ended up eating more calories because they have more opportunities to eat than those who sleep on time, lack of sleep can also disrupts the balance of hormones that control appetite.

Often sleep-deprived people are too tired to exercise which also decreasing their total amount of "calories burned" each day.

 

In fact  smaller controlled studies also confirmed that when people were allowed to sleep eight hours one night and then half that amount on another, they end up eating more on the days when they’ve had less sleep.

In general sleep-deprived people are more hungry and irritated than those who get enough sleep each night and it's the simple most and easy solution if you want to stay slim and eat less naturally and that is -sleep on time and take everyday 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day.

60% teenage girls obese as per waistline measure

E-mail Print PDF

According to a new research study that measures waistlines rather than BMI, children are even fatter than previously thought and around 60 per cent of teenage girls are obese by the time they reach 16,

The waist of the average 15-year-old girl has increased around 13cm over the past two decades of time period. According to the research carrying excess weight around the waist can increase risk of many illnesses later in life including heart disease,

liver problems and diabetes.

Speaking on this occassion Dr Griffiths said: 'BMI is a useful measure however, it may be more appropriate to use a combination of both BMI and waist circumference, as is recommended in adults. Children appear to be getting fatter and the extra fat is being carried around the waist, which is not being detected by BMI alone.'

Most shocking fact by the time the children reach 15-16 years, 25 per cent of the girls already exceed adult cut-off points for overweight (80cm) and 10 per cent actually exceed the adult cut points for obesity (88cm).

Summary: According to the celebrity trainer & holistic health consultant Subodh Gupta, Scientific Yoga can help Jonathan Trott to recover faster and deal effectively with his stress related illness.

Jonathan Trott flying back to England after the first test defeat at Gabba because of the stress related illness.

According to his coach Andy Flower: "Trotty has been suffering from a stress-related condition for quite a while and always managed it to be quite successful, he's a brilliant international batsman for England and hopefully will continue to be in the future.”

Stress is one of the byproduct of the present day competitive work environment and affects almost all spheres of life such as health, energy level, work related performance.

Stress when persists over a period of time become the most dangerous factor behind most of the psychosomatic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, migraine, digestive disorders, ulcer and even cancer, etc.

Subodh Gupta said, “Modern medicine can’t provide effective treatment to the stress because the real problem doesn’t lie inside the physical body. It originates from the mind, and then disturbs our energy level and finally appears on our physical level in the form of an illness.”

He added “Scientific yoga system positively affect parts of the brain that deal with anxiety and emotions. Any illness is a sign of imbalance and scientific yoga system bring balance in the body and mind system.”

The sympathetic nervous system becomes more active when we are under constant stress, causing our breath rate to quicken, blood pressure to rise and stress hormones to flood into our body.

Through practice of yoga we can bring equilibrium into our body and mind i.e. balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and as a result stress and depression can also be effectively reduced.

If you are suffering from stress related illness then take action now for your own good health. If we don’t take care about our own health then who will?

Yoga and meditation can also help Jonathan Trott to deal with his state of stress related illness and he can see the dramatic improvement within very short time.

One of the biggest problem faced by military personnels around the globe is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychiatric condition that includes anxiety, insomnia, nightmares, outbursts of anger, etc.

Quite often victims of PTSD demonstrate high levels of alcoholism, marital problems and even suicide. 

It is almost impossible to endure war stress without without being effected and modern medical facilities have struggled to cope with victims of PTSD. 

The modern solutions such as counselling, medication, etc. takes long time and don't provide permanant solution for most. 

According to the author and celebrity yoga trainer Subodh Gupta, Yoga and meditation (such as vipassana meditation) starts providing instant relief and help to eradicate the problems from the root. The approach of yoga to manage stress is multidimensional. It not only helps on physical level but also releases stress at the level of mind and improves the energy level of a practitioner. 

Yoga is a complete approach towards managing stress.

The gentle yoga helps in releasing stress at physical level as stiffness of joints can be improved. Breathing exercises such as kapalabhati and alternate nostril breathing bring balance at energy level.

Regular practice of meditation helps to eliminate stress at the level of mind.
