Health seems to be a constant discussion in today’s time, from making resolutions on New Year’s Eve to trying to shed pounds before summer kicks in to new diet fads every few months, it appears to be an endless battle between satisfying cravings and fitting into the perfect outfit. Going back a few decades, being and staying healthy used to be an easy accomplishment … right? Think about it! Technology at that point didn’t govern our lives, which meant people were more likely to invest time in other activities like exploring, travelling, spending time at the park/beach, going to outdoor markets and even doing frequent camping trips. That aside, there was also a substantial difference in the quality of our food which wasn’t as contaminated with hormones, questionable ingredients and chemicals in the thirst for mass production. Health care providers placed more emphasis on holistic and natural treatments, which often enriched our lifestyles along with our physical well-being. Environmental factors were less of a concern as air, sea, food and land pollution was at a bare minimum and communities we lived in welcomed and celebrated everyone, making individual happiness a top priority. Life was simple, yet fulfilling in so many ways.

Fast forward to today and you can see how drastically life has evolved. We live in an era, inundated with technology but are yet so disconnected from each other, we invest money in buying organic food yet can’t support farmers and local agriculture industries, we invest billions (that’s billions with B!) in medicine yet spend less than a fraction on prevention and healthy lifestyles. The 21st century has become truly ironic and unfortunately the fast-paced nature of our lives doesn’t allow us time to do much else. From overtime work commitments to packed social calendars to constant deadlines, we have found time for everyone else but ourselves. The media that we expose ourselves to has also affected our mental state as unhealthy body images have become a norm and glossy cover pages have propagated unrealistic beauty standards leading to health concerns becoming a global rage.

This 2016, it’s time to pull ourselves out from this rat race and focus on your wellness, living an integrated lifestyle and more importantly, having an attitude which puts YOU … first! Rendezvous With V is a passionate advocate for many global causes and discussions hence today’s post is in collaboration with Kelsey Bohlen and Mahima Mehta, who will be discussing key aspects of getting your health in check:

4 Secrets from Health Guru, Kelsey Bohlen:

With extreme diets, unhealthy body goals and a generally strained lifestyle, it is no wonder that many people stray off the path to personal enrichment. The good news is, we partnered with Kelsey Bohlen, the COO of Gymra, who happens to be in this post’s cover photo as well to bring you 4 ways to change that almost instantly. It is the first week of 2016 and I’m sure many of you might have renewed gym memberships, planned out balanced meals and are trying hard to stay on the healthy track, so Kelsey might have a few tricks to help you keep that year round.

Dancing the calories away with Mahima Mehta

Workout doesn’t have to be a dreaded daily ritual but rather something to look forward to if done right. The world of exercise has evolved, options like Zumba, Bellydancing, Kickboxing and even combination fat busters like Yogalates have appealed to people of all age groups. Integrating dance into any workout regime has become a popular and highly effective alternative, so today we partnered with Mahima Mehta, founder of MAD – Mad About Dance, who has some interesting insights:

“There are many health benefits to pursue physical activities such as dance, the more obvious ones include losing weight, building stamina, improving blood circulation and toning but few know that there are many mental health positives as well, including improving focus, reducing negative thinking, enhancing memory as well as self confidence to name a few “

Ancient Remedies 

Traditionally Ayurvedic treatments or whipping up a remedy from natural ingredients became an obvious solution, however, today taking a prescription for simple ailments has become increasingly popular. The trouble is our bodies have become resilient to various types of medicine and numerous scientific studies have shown detrimental long-term effects on liver and kidney function, while you should continue to follow your health practitioner’s prescribed treatments, supplementing it naturally can make a world of difference to your overall well-being.

Ancient Chinese and Indian medicine placed importance on using the right combination of herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables to treat minor health concerns. Much of the remedies mentioned below has been found thru online research and we want to stress the importance of consulting with your own doctor before trying anything out as everyone responds differently to herbs, spices and plants. The list below has been provided to merely educate. Here are some remedial picks from across the web:

  • Circulatory Stimulant: Mixing onion extract with honey provides warmth and improves circulation.
  • Cough Syrup: A tsp of raw onion juice and honey kept over 3-4 hours serves as an excellent cough syrup.
  • Haemorrhoids: Soaking 50g of onion and 10g of sugar in water, and drinking it helps to heal piles.
  • Ear-ache: Crush and mix garlic in coconut oil, boil and pour 2-3 drops after it cools down, alleviates ear ache.
  • Diabetes: Crush, mix and take garlic in warm water early morning, to help control blood sugar levels.
  • Skin afflictions: Garlic cloves, crushed and fried in mustard oil can be applied to boils and other skin problems.
  • Joint pain: Fry 8-10 garlic cloves in clarified butter and take it before meals to alleviate joint pain.
  • Pimples: A pinch of Turmeric, mixed with a tsp of Coriander juice should be applied externally
  • Digestion: Roasted cumin seeds are given with curd or buttermilk to treat digestive ailments.
  • Fortifying Tonic: 200mg cumin seeds soaked in Cow’s milk overnight, should then be dried and powdered. 1 tsp of the powder along with sugar can be taken as a general fortifying tonic.

Taking charge of your health can be one of the most integral things you can do for yourself, as it ultimately finds a way to catch up with you. If there are 3 things you should take away from today’s post it is: Eliminate foods where you can’t easily read all the ingredients on the nutrition labels, integrate dance into your day and try to include more spices, plants and herbs into your diet.
