Ramadan food gide lines

💠 RAMAZAN Foods Guide lines

In view of the long hours of fasting, we should consume slow digesting foods including fiber containing-foods rather than Fast-digesting foods.
Slow digesting foods last up to 8 hours, while fast-digesting foods last for only 3 to 4 hours:
Slow digesting foods are foods that contain grains and seeds like barley, wheat, oats, millet, semolina, beans, lentils, whole meal flour, unpolished rice, etc. (called complex carbohydrates).
Fast-burning foods are foods that contain sugar, white flour, etc. (called refined carbohydrates).

• Fried foods are unhealthy and should be limited. They cause indigestion, heartburn, and weight problems.
AVOID
• Fried and fatty foods.
• Foods containing too much sugar.
• Over-eating especially at sehri.
• Too much tea at sehri. Tea makes you pass more urine taking with it valuable mineral salts that your body would need during the day.
EAT
• Complex carbohydrates at sehri so that the food lasts longer making you
less hungry.
• Haleem is an excellent source of protein and is a slow-burning food.
• Dates are excellent source of sugar, fiber, carbohydrates, potassium and
magnesium.
• Almonds are rich in protein and fiber with less fat.
• Bananas are a good source of potassium, magnesium and carbohydrates.

DRINK
• As much water or fruit juices as possible between iftar and bedtime so
that your body may adjust fluid levels in time.

🌹 CONSTIPATION
Constipation can cause piles (hemorrhoids), fissures (painful cracks in anal canal) and indigestion with a bloated feeling.
Causes : Too much refined foods, too little water and not enough fiber in the diet.

Remedy : Avoid excessive refined foods, increase water intake, and use bran in baking, brown flour when making roti. Soaked figs, plums, apple juice, khak-shir, chia seed juice and Sekanjebin are good options as well.

🌹 INDIGESTION AND WIND
Causes : Over-eating. Too much fried and fatty foods, spicy foods, and foods that produce wind e.g. eggs, cabbage, lentils, carbonated drinks like Cola also produce gas.
Remedy : Do not over-eat; drink fruit juices or better still drink water.
Avoid fried foods; add ajmor to wind-producing foods.

HEADACHE
Causes : Caffeine and tobacco-withdrawal, doing too much in one day, lack of sleep, hunger usually occur as the day goes by and worsens at the end of the day. Depends which part of the head pains, the cure would be different.

Stress-THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON

Según una organización benéfica del Reino Unido para la salud mental, 1 de cada 5 británicos ha enfermado por el estrés laboral, y 1 de cada 4 ha llorado en el trabajo por causa de la tensión. En el 2009, año de crisis económica, hubo un aumento sin precedentes en la venta de antidepresivos….

 

THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON

Describes the tragicomedy of life and comparisons.

It’s three  – in English

According to a UK charity for mental health, 1 in 5 Britons has fallen ill from work-related stress, and 1 in 4 has cried at work because of stress. In 2009, the year of economic crisis, there was an unprecedented increase in the sale of antidepressants.

What things cause you stress?

  • Economic and other types of insecurity

  • A grueling routine

  • The interpersonal problems

  • A traumatic experience

How does stress affect you?

  • Health problems

  • Emotional stress

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Depression

  • Deterioration of their personal relationships

Stress activates the body’s amazing emergency system, which releases hormones that raise the breathing rate, heart rate and blood pressure. It also increases the concentration of blood cells and glucose in the blood. This set of reactions prepares the body to deal with the source of stress. Once the stress goes down, the body returns to normal, but if it does not decrease, it can cause chronic tension; it is as if the body were an engine that is always accelerated. So, to be physically and mentally healthy, we have to learn to manage stress.

Stress itself is not bad. The American Psychological Association compares it to the tension of a violin string. If there is very little voltage, the sound will be off and out of tune; If there is too much, it will be strident or the string will break. He also comments: “Stress can be the kiss of death or the salt of life. The question is really how to handle it. “

On the other hand, people have different temperaments and some are healthier than others. What causes tension to one person may not affect another. However, if your routine makes you so tense that it does not allow you to relax or react well to difficult situations, you will most likely suffer from chronic stress.

There are those who resort to drugs, alcohol or tobacco to “manage” their stress. Others modify their eating behaviors or spend a lot of time in front of the television or computer. However, none of this attacks the root of the problem; On the contrary, it could make it worse. So, what is the correct way to handle stress?

Total security does not exist. Try these suggestions:

  • Talk to a family member or friend you trust. Various studies show that the support of loved ones protects us from illnesses related to stress. Yes, a true friend “loves at all times, and is a brother born for when there is anguish”.

  • Do not always think of the worst; The only thing you will achieve is to wear yourself out emotionally. In addition, it is most likely that the terrible situations you imagine will never happen.

Work, study, travel every day, take care of children, parents … These are things that tend to trigger the level of stress, and yet we have to do them. What to do then?

  • Try to find moments to relax and rest.

  • Put your priorities in proper order and lead a simple life. If possible, reduce your expenses or spend less time working.

Problems with other people, especially in the workplace, can generate a lot of stress. If this happens to you, think about the following suggestions:

  • When someone offends you, try to stay calm. Do not add fuel to the fire.

  • Try to resolve the differences privately. Treat the other person with dignity and respect.

  • Try to understand the feelings and views of the person who offended you. Putting yourself in the shoes of the other person will help you calm down. It is also useful to think about how others see it.

  • Excuse me Forgiveness is something beautiful … and good medicine. According to a study conducted in 2001, not forgiving significantly increases heart rate and blood pressure, while doing so reduces stress.
