    The term “cholesterol” refers to an oil-based substance present in each cell which contributes significantly to the digestive system, among other functions in the human body. Since it does not mix with blood, parcels of cholesterol are carried around the body by lipoproteins. Typically, there are two types of such lipoproteins: Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). LDLs are considered to be “bad” cholesterol and an increase in LDL levels contributes majorly to developing high cholesterol levels. (Information credit: GetSavvi Health)   A person suffering from high cholesterol is prone to heart attacks and other cardiovascular ailments and symptoms. Cholesterol can also go unnoticed if not screened through regular blood testing which can increase the chances of a sudden heart attack or stroke. Although visiting a general physician or a specialist doctor is recommended in extreme cases, there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that an individual can make to keep his or her cholesterol levels in check.   1. Limiting the intake of saturated fats, trans fats and dietary cholesterol: It is always recommended to avoid foods containing a lot of saturated fats like butter, red meat, dairy products, coconut and palm oil. Avoiding trans fats and dietary cholesterol can be tricky, as many people don’t know the sources of these pro-cholesterol agents. Trans fats is usually found in packaged food, listed as “hydrogenated fat” while egg yolks, organ meats and shellfish are full of dietary cholesterol.   The solution: Three and a half to four ounces of meat, poultry and fish intake will help keep things under control. Fish like salmon, sardines, herring, trout and mackerel which are rich in Omega 3 can help a great deal in controlling high LDL levels.   2. Losing Weight: Excess weight and obesity is a very common cause of high cholesterol levels and a host of related illnesses like heart attacks, high blood pressure, strokes and gout, etc. There can be many reasons for a person developing excess weight which may include bad eating habits, sleep deprivation, huge fat intake and even suffering from some diseases.   The solution: Regular exercises by either joining a gym or practising a sport. Simple exercises like jogging, running and hiking have been proven to be effective.   3. Eating less processed foods: Rather opt for fresh fruits, vegetables and foods that naturally occur in nature. Some naturally-occurring plant extracts are very effective in the fight against cholesterol. One such substance is “sterols” which are critical for lowering LDL levels.   Psyllium husks are another plant-related substance used extensively around the world as a suitable supplement for fibre supplements and laxatives. They can be found in any medical supplier store or online. The solution: Plant sterol supplements are found in many medical stores around the globe, with a recommended dosage of one to two grams daily.   Studies have shown that a daily dose of nine to 10 grams of psyllium has the maximum cholesterol-lowering benefit.   High LDL levels are not favourable and can be considered a harbinger for cholesterol-related problems. It is best advised to take action now to curb the effects of cholesterol in the long run.

    In the modern age of healthcare and medicine, having a medical aid plan has become one of the most essential requirements of living a safe, normal life.  Due to the escalated risk of catching diseases and other ailments, it has become extremely important for medical aid plans to cover for unexpected expenses that an individual may incur. In South Africa, there are many medical aid schemes that have been developed with the consumer in mind. All of these schemes are aimed at making private hospitals and basic healthcare services accessible to all.   With such a growing demand for medical schemes, it is natural to find a myriad of medical aid providers, each claiming that they provide the best service possible at that given rate. However, as a consumer, it is extremely important to make that decision after careful evaluations of all options at hand. Medical aid schemes are a long-term investment for any individual so the decision should be taken after being absolutely certain.   There are certain factors one can use to take a better-informed choice when it comes to choosing an appropriate medical provider. By comparing various factors such as coverage or premiums is the first step in getting the most out of a particular medical aid scheme. Below are three reasons as to why you should compare different medical aid schemes in this highly competitive market. (Information Credit – https://www.medicalaid.co.za)   Covering Basic Health Needs: No two health plans are the same and can differ in the amount of coverage they provide. While some schemes provide comprehensive coverage, there are many others which do not cover essential aspects such as daily medicinal expenditures, or hospital bills. This information can be found in a list of inclusions and exclusions that come attached to every scheme. As a consumer, make sure to pay special attention to these clauses to give you a better picture of the different coverage areas of each medical aid scheme. Coverage for Regular Medical Tests: Conducting regular tests have become a major requirement for living a healthy life. The cost of medical tests has also risen dramatically, which are not always covered in all medical aid schemes. Generally, all medical schemes cover some basic medical tests. But the majority do not cover specific disease-related tests which might pose some problems later on. Comparing the different schemes when it comes to medical test coverage is thus a necessary consideration. Co-Payments and Exclusions: Another crucial but highly overlooked aspect of medical aid plans include co-payments and exclusions. These are present in almost all types of medical aid scheme available. By going through this information, individuals can take the decision according to their own budget, preferences and requirements. Ignoring such information may result in unpleasant surprises in medical bills in the near future.   With so many medical schemes and providers in the market, it has become a crucial step to evaluate and compare different medical schemes before enrolling in one.

    In the present world, life is extremely fast-paced, and rest is something that is gradually vanishing from everyday routines. The time of sleep is something which with time is reducing; resulting is loss of energy and efficiency at work. Lack of sleep can lead to chronic diseases in the long-run. Thus, it is vital that an individual incorporates a strict sleep routine which will help him lead a healthier life.   Today utmost amount of priority is given to the work, which is fine, but depriving one’s health from any attention is alarming. Sleep is the period when our body heals from all the strain that it goes through. For people who exercise on a regular basis or those who work outdoors for a long time, sleep is extremely essential for people like them, as it helps their muscles to grow. The ideal time of sleep generally range from seven to eight hours, however it can be higher for certain people. An individual needs to realise how much sleep he needs in a day. There are certain things that an individual needs to keep in mind if he wants to enjoy a good night’s sleep. (Information Credit – https://www.getsavvi.co.za)   Sticking to A Timing: A person who has been going to bed at 2am and waking up at 10am, cannot be suddenly change such a routine. It takes time. A person needs to gradually start going to bed earlier. For instance, if you go to sleep at 2am daily, you should start going to bed at 1am for one week, the next week you should go to bed at 12 and ultimately at 11 on the third week.   This way, the body gets adjusted to the new sleep routine and will not strain the body. After the sleep cycle is successfully manipulated into becoming a comparatively healthier one, an individual must stick to that routine. Waking up at 6 is the best habit as it provides an individual with enough sleep and allows enough time to meditate, exercise and finish pending work.   Prohibition from Electronic Temptations: In order to receive a good amount of healthy sleep, one must make sure that he switches off his computer or laptop at least an hour before he is planning to go to bed. This would allow his eyes to get adequate rest before going to sleep. Mobile phones are other such distractions which an individual needs to get rid of, because the blue light that phones and computers screens emit a blue light which tires the eye and thus postpones sleep. Therefore, any kind of electronic device must be kept away before and while going to sleep.   A Comfortable Ambience: The ambience of the room is another very important factor which drastically affects the amount of sleep an individual gets at night. The lighting should always be kept dim in the room the person is trying to sleep; even a little amount of bright light can stop an individual from falling asleep and can also wake someone. The temperature is another very significant characteristic of the ambience. The temperature should be cool, ideally 19 to 20 degree centigrade, in order provide the person with a sound sleep.   Controlling the Caffeine: Certain individuals, who are habituated in working late at night, generally tend to sit down at work with a cup of coffee. This prevents them from falling asleep. Keeping this fact in mind, an individual must keep in mind that he should not have anything that contains caffeine after dinner, because that would stop him from falling asleep. Apart from coffee, chocolates should also be avoided because they contain caffeine as well.   A Balanced Diet Is the Key An individual who eats a lot of junk food and has trouble in digesting food will have a hard time going to sleep, because he would feel uncomfortable because of the food in his stomach. An ideal should be extremely high in vegetables and fruits, because they are rich in fibres which promote digestion. A bowl of soup with vegetables in them is the most ideal dinner. Even though an individual cannot be that much strict with the diet, he must make sure to consume vegetables in every meal, and have a comparatively light dinner.   Thus, this article successfully deals with the factors that help an individual to have a sound sleep at night, an in turn create a healthy habit for that individual. A healthy life is something that everybody strives to lead, even though they not always able to get time for that. These precautions would, even though a little bit, improve their quality of life.

    A certain human being has been gifted with five main senses which help them in living their day to day lives with ease; hearing is one of the most critical senses, a lack of which can bring about a huge change in the daily life of an individual. Hearing is a basic right that every person deserves. However, loss of hearing is a condition that is almost inevitable for an individual after a certain age. (Information credit: https://www.theeardepot.com/our-services/hearing-test/)   A particular person between his or her late fifties and early sixties generally might come across a condition, which would gradually diminish their capacity of hearing. Now, it cannot always be predicted whether a certain individual will go through such a situation, which is why there exists some early warning signs which everyone should make a note of, as they are about to reach that age.   The process of hearing takes place when a particular wave of sound enters the ear and reaches the eardrums, after which that particular wave is converted into nerve signals, which is then transferred to the brain and helps it recognize them as sound, after which we effectively understand the what kind the sound is. Thus, it further emphasizes the importance of the ability of hearing. The following are five of the most noticeable signs which a person, if notices minutely, can understand.   6 Signs That Should Not Be Ignored 1. Muffled Voices: With age, an individual may notice that gradually the voices they hear around them are being comparatively muffled. They can notice certain blurriness in everything they hear. This is a very serious sign which should never be ignored by anybody.   2. Lack of Clarity: When in the middle of a huge crowd, a person may find difficulty in properly hearing what a person is saying to them. Sounds coming from other people in the crowd should not affect an individual’s ability to listen to the words coming from a person next to them. This too is a warning sign which should be urgently considered.   3. Consonants Hearing: One very peculiar but alarming sign of loss of hearing is difficulty in hearing consonants. This sign is ideally very hard to understand, but if noticed minutely, a person would be able to point out this weird sign.   4. Unable to Hear: There exists a habit of people, which most would consider as being very irritating, is asking others to repeat what they just said. This even though seems like a habit, is an alarming sign of the loss of hearing of that person.   5. High Volume Hearing Only: With age, a person tends to try and increase the volume of the television or radio. This might seem as a tendency of aged people, but in reality, it’s a warning sign of the risk that is hovering upon the hearing ability of that particular person.   6. Reluctance to Be Part of Gatherings: With the passing of time and age, an individual tends to avoid social gatherings. Traditionally, this tendency marks the individual as anti-social for themselves. However, this might be because that they are gradually losing their hearing ability, which in turn is making them unwilling about being a part of social gatherings.   Warning signs of loss of hearing thus are difficult to point out but are very crucial and alarming.
