POUR VIVRE VIEUX ET HEUREUX, CULTIVONS… NOS RELATIONS

Qu’est-ce qu’une vie « réussie » ? Et quels en sont les ingrédients ? Il nous arrive à tous de nous poser la question, généralement en plein blues. Elle pourrait alimenter des pages de devoirs de philo et des heures de discussion, avec autant de réponses que d’avis divergents, selon les personnes et les moments. Pour les chercheurs, qui pilotent la Harvard Study, plus longue étude jamais menée sur la santé et le développement des adultes et qui en retracent les enseignements dans un livre grand public, « The Good Life », qui paraît ce mois de janvier, la réponse tient en un seul mot : nos relations. Très proches (conjoint ou compagnon et enfants), famille, amis, copains et camarades, professionnels ou d’activités diverses : vivre longtemps, en bonne santé…

Diabetes and Sexual Health

Diabetes and Sexual Health

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to keep diabetes out of the bedroom? Unfortunately, about half of all people with diabetes are likely to develop a sexual complication that interferes with their ability to participate fully in intimate activity. The good news is, there are many effective treatments that can help. The issues Men. According to the landmark Massachusetts Male Aging Study, men with diabetes are three times more likely to develop erectile dysfunction (ED) than other men. That’s the persistent inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection adequate for penetration. The study also noted that men with diabetes are more likely to develop ED 10 to 15 years earlier than those without diabetes. Additional common male issues include reduced sexual desire, lower self-esteem, performance anxiety, and orgasm/ejaculation challenges. Women.…

Los errores más comunes que se cometen en la alimentación

Los errores más comunes que se cometen en la alimentación

Buena parte de nuestras conversaciones giran alrededor de un tema: la alimentación. Ya Sea para elegir un restaurante donde comer o para decidir qué cenar, la nutrición parece ser tan vital en las palabras como lo es en nuestras vidas. A la vez, existe muchísima información de nutrición en los medios. Esta superabundancia informativa, a veces, más que aportar nuevos conocimientos, confunde. Uno ya no sabe exactamente a quién creerle y acepta como válidas afirmaciones que no tienen respaldo científico. Por eso, la idea de este fascículo es saber qué hay de verdad detrás de cientos de creencias sobre nutrición que, muchas veces, nos llevan por caminos equivocados (con las consecuencias no deseadas de sobrepeso, retención de líquidos, hipertensión, etc.) y lograr seguir el camino de la nutrición saludable.…

Schlaf dich gesund

Geschlafen hast du einigermaßen vertretbar gut. Du kämpfst dich aus dem Bett, obwohl du gerne weiterschlafen würdest. Doch das kommt für dich nicht in Frage! Dein starkes Mindset hat dich bis hierhin gebracht. Du denkst lösungsorientiert und möchtest erfoigreich(er) werden. Du bist ein/e Macher/ in. Deiner Arbeit gehst du mit Liebe, Leidenschaft, hohem Pflicht- und Verantwortungsbewusstsein und Motivation nach. Doch wer morgens nicht super ausgeschlafen und komplett erholt den Tag startet, der lebt an diesem Tag kein “Tschaka Tschaka”. Du “kämpfst” dich eher durch deinen Tag. Einen guten Job machst du - ohne Zweifel. Es kostet dich aber Kraft. Deine To-Do-Liste wird gefühlt länger. Es fällt dir im Laufe des Tages immer schwerer, dich zu 100% zu konzentrieren. Du bist schneller gereizt, wenn mal was nicht so funktioniert wie gewünscht. Der Alltag fällt dir…

MA RÉSOLUTION Bouger chaque jour et m’y tenir !

Notre corps n’est pas génétiquement programmé pour rester inactif. Au contraire, il est fait pour bouger. Malheureusement, notre mode de vie nous confine à l’inactivité. Entre les heures passées derrière un bureau ou devant la télé, l’utilisation des escalators et de l’ascenseur, la livraison à domicile… Les occasions de bouger se font de plus en plus rares. Résultat, le niveau de sédentarité grimpe en flèche quand le niveau d’activité physique fond comme neige au soleil. On doit tous réagir Selon la dernière évaluation de l’Anses, 35,5 millions d’adultes en France sont exposés à des risques sanitaires élevés à cause d’un manque d’activité physique (AP). « Moins de la moitié des Français âgés de 15 à 75 ans atteignent un niveau d’AP favorable à la santé », indique également le ministère de la…

Your posture keeps the score

Somatics (in the tradition of Thomas Hanna) teaches you how your posture is an expression of your nervous system and gives you a doorway into understanding how stress and anxiety affects you, not only mentally and emotionally, but physically too. Our nervous system is constantly stimulated as it filters our senses, through what we see, hear, and feel. If those senses are stressful or fearful, the fight, flight and freeze responses are triggered. If triggered continually these responses become habituated, physically changing our posture. Thomas Hanna codified these responses into the Red and Green Light reflex patterns. He created movements and techniques to release out of each reflex, so the starting point is to learn to sense these reflex patters in yourself. The Red Light Pattern When we experience ongoing worry and anxiety the…

Wellbeing TRENDS to try in 2023

Wellbeing TRENDS to try in 2023

1 WORKPLACE WELLBEING For many, workplaces are changing for the better. ‘It’s going to be a big year for workplace wellness in 2023. We’re out the other side of the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis is in full force,’ says clinical psychologist Dr Jenna Vyas-Lee, co-founder of koveminds.com. ‘Employees are demanding a better work-life balance, and employers are catching up. I think holistic wellness packages, including looking after people’s finances and mental health, will trend upwards.’ And there’s good news for menopausal women. Once largely ignored, this life stage is now being given the attention it deserves. ‘Employers are looking at the effect of symptoms on work, and the effect of the workplace on symptoms, resulting in the implementation of menopause policies and the appointing of menopause champions,’ says health…

Improving thyroid health with a plant-based diet

The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped organ in the neck which plays a major role in many processes of the body, especially helping to maintain body temperature and balancing metabolism. Dysfunction of the main thyroid hormones, T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine), can affect overall health. According to NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence), low functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism) and over active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) affects 1-2 per cent of the UK population, with women being 10 times more prone as compared to men. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis remains the commonest type of hypothyroidism. This is an autoimmune condition where the body’s own defence system reduces the production of T3 and T4. Hyperthyroidism on the other side, is also an autoimmune condition where the autoantibodies (antibodies made against substances formed by a…

Top 10 Healthy Resolutions To Last A Lifetime

With nearing end of 2022, it’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health. Forty-five times of young people die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar and salt. Sedentary lifestyle, in adequate sleep and stress are factors that need to be taken under control for long lasting health benefits.

5 HEALTHY FOOD HABITS

5 HEALTHY FOOD HABITS

1: Eat more plants Eating more plants is one of the best things you can do for your health. Evidence shows that eating a wholesome plant-based diet can reduce your risk of weight gain and chronic disease. Plant-based diets are protective against type-2 diabetes, certain cancers, cardiovascular disease and obesity. Plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and wholegrains are rich in dietary fibre, healthy unsaturated fats and protective antioxidants. Fruit and vegetables are loaded with important phytochemicals such as flavonoids, carotenoids and isothiocyanates that have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions, helping to protect our cells from oxidative damage. Inflammation is said to be the root of almost all diseases. Excessive red meat and processed meat consumption can promote inflammation in the body. Raw nuts and seeds (including their pastes and oils),…

EL CUERPO NECESITA 8 VASOS DE AGUA POR DÍA: QUÉ NOS PASA SI NO LOS TOMAMOS?

DORMIR MAL ENGORDA

DRA. LAURA LLACUNA BIÓLOGA, DOCTORA EN BIOMEDICINA Y ESPECIALISTA EN PSICONEUROINMUNOLOGÍA Y NUTRICIÓN Dormir mal tiene consecuencias más allá de estar cansada: hay diversos estudios que relacionan la falta de horas de sueño con el aumento de peso y con un mayor riesgo de tener obesidad. ¿Por qué sucede? La causa principal es un desequilibrio hormonal. Dormir mal altera las hormonas involucradas en el apetito: la leptina, que reduce el apetito, y la grelina, que lo aumenta. Además genera una serie de cambios metabólicos que hacen que no solo tengas más hambre y comas más, sino que almacenes más grasa y tu metabolismo sea cada vez lento. Y es que el sistema hormonal funciona como una gran orquesta con muchos miembros que tienen que tocar (funcionar) de forma armónica. No dormir no solo…

Was das Immunsystem beruhigt

Autoimmunerkrankungen galten lange als schwer behandelbar. Innerhalb weniger Jahre nach Ausbruch machten sie aus gesunden Menschen schwer kranke Patientinnen und Patienten, gebeugt von Schmerzen und geplagt von körperlichen Einschränkungen. Lange Zeit war vor allem hoch dosiertes Kortison das einzige Mittel, um den Angriff des Immunsystems auf körpereigenes Gewebe einzudämmen – mit allen Nebenwirkungen langfristiger Kortisongabe. Außerdem wurden mit fortgeschrittener Krankheit immer stärkere Schmerzmittel verordnet. In den späten 1980er-Jahren kam mit dem Zellteilungshemmer Methotrexat (siehe Liste rechts) der erste Immunmodulator auf den Markt. Bis heute gehört das Medikament zu den wichtigen Wirkstoffen zur Behandlung von Autoimmunerkrankungen. Weitere Therapeutika wie Immunglobuline (siehe rechts) folgten. Der Durchbruch kam um die Jahrtausendwende, als die ersten »Biologika« eingesetzt wurden. Gezielte Therapie mit weniger Nebenwirkungen Entscheidend für den Erfolg dieser modernen Behandlungen ist, dass man den gestörten Immunmechanismus…

Was das Immunsystem beruhigt

Stress schwächt

Psyche und Immunsystem sind über Botenstoffe und das Darmmikrobiom eng verbunden, sodass Stress auch auf die Abwehr wirkt. Die Fachwelt unterscheidet zwischen akuten und andauernden Strapazen: Joggen, Sauna, ein nahender Abgabetermin – kurzfristige Anstrengungen kurbeln unser Immunsystem an. Doch bei chronischem Stress kehrt sich die Wirkung um: Die Abwehr wird geschwächt. Dauerstress etwa gilt als starker Auslöser von Entzündungen, sogar ganz ohne Keime. Auslöser ist die Amygdala, auch Mandelkern genannt, die zum »emotionalen« Gehirn gehört. Sie gibt Signale an den Körper ab, vermehrt weiße Blutkörperchen und Entzündungsbotenstoffe zu produzieren. »Chronischer Stress begünstigt bei entsprechender Veranlagung den Ausbruch von Autoimmunerkrankungen oder von erneuten Schüben«, sagt Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann von der Universität Augsburg. Die Erkenntnisse weisen den Weg, wie wir unsere Abwehr unterstützen können: Meditation, Entspannung und Psychotherapie helfen, psychische Belastungen zu reduzieren,…

Weights vs Cardio

Weights vs Cardio

CARDIO, SHORT FOR cardiovascular, training is where you’re predominantly using your own bodyweight and doing something repetitive, such as running, dancing or swimming, which gets your heart pumping. ‘Any type of exercise or fitness class where you’re moving, breathing hard and your heart rate increases, is almost certainly a cardio classic,’ says Tony Goldingay from fitness company Sweatband (sweatband.com). ‘Aerobic exercise relies almost exclusively on oxygen to power you, and it can be sustained over a longish period of time,’ he adds. The opposite of aerobic exercise is anaerobic, where you do short, sharp movements such as weights or a sprint for 10 seconds. ‘Weight training is an anaerobic form of exercise, relying heavily on glucose and requiring less oxygen than its cardiovascular counterpart – but it uses a heck…

BRIGHT MOOD, BETTER HEALTH

BRIGHT MOOD, BETTER HEALTH

LOOKING AT LIFE WITH a brighter viewpoint is a science-backed tool that can improve your mood, help you meet goals, and improve your health. And you don’t have to overhaul your personality to benefit: Even small differences in your attitude can deliver big payoffs, says Hilary Tindle, MD, the author of Up: How Positive Outlook Can Transform Our Health and Aging. What makes optimism so powerful is that it’s based in realism—it’s not about simply thinking things will be OK. “True optimists are pragmatic, perhaps because they scan the horizon to see what might go wrong and then work and plan around those potential pitfalls so things can go right,” Dr. Tindle says. In other words, optimists proactively work to make the positive happen. In return, they score some major health…

Time for a health MOT?

In recent years, we’ve become more health-conscious than ever before. But beyond the usual advice of eating healthily and exercising more, it can be difficult to know what we actually need to do to ward off disease and live better for longer. It seems logical (and ideal) to approach our health in a personalised way, learning about what is happening in our own bodies and receiving tailored advice accordingly. To some degree, this is already offered on the NHS: everyone aged between 40 and 74 can take up a health check, designed to spot the early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and dementia. But given that this is still a relatively basic offering, and that the NHS is so overstretched, many private clinics have long been…

Secrets to a pain-free 2023!

More joy = less pain! Finding time every day to do something that makes you feel truly relaxed and happy (such as reading in bed, soaking in the tub or watching sitcoms) reduces stiffness and pain by up to 60%. So say Norwegian researchers, who found that stress-busting breaks don’t just soothe nerves, they also activate pleasure-triggering areas of the brain, noticeably increasing your pain threshold. Halt head pain with a jaw press With so much to do every day, the last thing you want is a tension headache slowing you down. Thankfully, New Zealand scientists say massaging tight jaw muscles can chase away pain in 5 minutes and even prevent future headaches if you do it twice daily. That’s because when jaw muscles are relaxed, they’re less likely to pinch and irritate…

TUTTI IN TERAPIA: NE ABBIAMO DAVVERO BISOGNO?

Tutte quelle insegne mi abbacinavano. Su ogni cartellone pubblicitario che incrociavo, le lettere maiuscole e i punti esclamativi mi sembravano minacciosi. Come se le parole stessero per saltare fuori dalle immagini e afferrarmi. Sarei stata soffocata dal cappio di una Y, o dall’avvolgente circolo di una O. Mi accovacciai sul freddo marciapiede di cemento, nascosta tra due auto parcheggiate, terrorizzata dall’ondata di panico che improvvisamente mi attraversava da capo a piedi. Pensavo di restare lì per un po’, finché non mi fossi sentita di nuovo al sicuro. Poi, una volta che mi fossi tranquillizzata, mi sarei fatta forza e avrei continuato a camminare per raggiungere il luogo dove facevo psicoterapia, una volta a settimana. Del resto, dovevo farlo. Erano settimane che mi sentivo intrappolata in una spirale negativa. E ora…
