    பார்வை கூர்மைக்கு கண்களுக்கான எளிய பயிற்சி

    கண்களுக்கு பயிற்சி கொடுத்தாலே போதும். பார்வை பளிச் என்று கிடைக்கும். இது சீனர்களின் நம்பிக்கை. மற்ற நாட்டினரை காட்டிலும் சீனர்களுக்கு கண்பார்வை கூர்மையாக உள்ளதாக ஆய்வு ஒன்று தெரிவிக்கிறது. அதற்கு காரணம் அவர்கள் உடற்பயிற்சி போலவே கண்களுக்கு பயிற்சி அளிக்கும் பழக்கத்தை மேற்கொண்டிருக்கின்றனர்.

    அந்த பயிற்சி விவரம் வருமாறு:- முதலில் ஒரு நாற்காலியில் நேராக அமர்ந்து கொள்ள வேண்டும். பின்பு கீழே கூறப்பட்டுள்ள பயிற்சிகளை ஒவ்வொன்றாக செய்தால் போதும். கண்ணாடி இல்லாமலே பார்வை பளிச்சிடும்.

    பயிற்சி-1. தலையை அசைக்காமல் கண்களை வலமிருந்து இடமாகவும், பிறகு இடமிருந்து வலமாகவும் பார்க்க வேண்டும். இப்படி 8 முறை செய்ய வேண்டும். எவ்வளவு தூரத்திற்கு பார்க்க முடியுமோ அவ்வளவு தூரத்திற்கு பார்க்க வேண்டும்.

    பயிற்சி-2. தொடர்ந்து மேலிருந்து கீழாகவும், பிறகு கீழிருந்து மேலாகவும் பார்க்க வேண்டும். இதையும் 8 முறை செய்ய வேண்டும்.

    பயிற்சி-3. கண்களை வலமிருந்து இடமாக கடிகார முட்களைப் போல 8 முறை சுழற்ற வேண்டும். இதேபோல இடமிருந்து வலமாக 8 முறை சுழற்ற வேண்டும்.

    பயிற்சி-4. உங்களது கண்களுக்கு முன்னால் படுக்கை வசத்தில் 8 என்ற எண் இருப்பதாக கற்பனை செய்து கொள்ளுங்கள். முதலில் வலமிருந்து இடமாக கண்களால் 8ஐ போடுங்கள். இதையே மாற்றி இடமிருந்து வலமாக செய்ய வேண்டும்.

    பயிற்சி-5. உங்களது கண்களுக்கு முன்னால் செங்குத்தாக 8 என்ற எண் இருப்பதாக பாவித்துக்கொள்ளுங்கள். முதலில் மேலிருந்து கீழாகவும் பின் கீழிருந்து மேலாகவும் கண்களால் 8 போட வேண்டும்.

    பயிற்சி-6- வலது கண்ணின் மேல் கார்னரை உற்று நோக்க வேண்டும். பிறகு வலது கண்ணின் கீழ் கார்னரை பார்க்க வேண்டும். இதையும் 8 முறை செய்ய வேண்டும். இதேபோல இடது கண்ணின் மேல் கார்னரையும், கீழ் கார்னரையும் பார்க்க வேண்டும். இதையும் 8 முறை செய்ய வேண்டும்.

    ஒவ்வொரு பயிற்சியின் முடிவிலும் கண்களை சிமிட்ட வேண்டும்.

    இந்த பயிற்சிகள் முடிந்ததும் நாற்காலியில் அமர்ந்தவாறே வலது உள்ளங்கையால் இடது கண்ணையும், இடது உள்ளங்கையால் வலது கண்ணையும் மென்மையாக அழுத்தம் கொடுக்காமல் மூட வேண்டும். சில வினாடிகள் கழித்து மூடிய உள்ளங்கைகளை மெதுவாக எடுக்க வேண்டும். அப்போது கண்களை சிமிட்டிக் கொண்டே கைகளை எடுக்க வேண்டும். பிறகு முழுமையாக எதிரே உள்ளவற்றை பார்க்கலாம்.

    பயிற்சிகளை தினமும் ஒரு முறை அல்லது இரு முறை செய்யலாம். 30 முதல் 40 நாட்களுக்கு தொடர்ச்சியாக செய்தால் நல்ல பலன் உண்டு. கடைசியாக ஒன்று பயிற்சி காலத்தில் மது, புகை கூடாது. இதற்கு கண்ணாடியே போட்டுக்கொள்ளலாம் என்று புகை, மதுப் பிரியர்கள் சொன்னாலும் சொல்வார்கள்.

    Doctors offer tips to fasting diabetics

    Fasting by people who suffer from lifestyle disease diabetes is turning a matter of concern. Many are pondering over how they can ensure a balance between fasting and the disease. To avoid health repercussions for those who choose to fast, leading diabetologists in the city give expert advice.

    Leading diabetologist A. Ramachandran says consult a doctor to check glucose status along with other complications and other co-morbid conditions which could be aggravated by prolonged fasting, particularly chronic kidney disease, hepatic failure, severe cardiac problems-unstable angina, heart failure. Also the diet and meal plan needed in line with individual calorie requirement to avoid dehydration.


    “Those with mild diabetes and on small doses of oral medicine have to modify the timings of their medication. Those on metformin are comparatively safer as sugar levels will not go down. It is ideal to take tablets after breaking the fast for those who are consuming more powerful tablets like Sulphanyle”, says Dr. Mohan, noted diabetologist. Those who are on insulin twice a day, suppose morning 10mg and evening 10 mg, it is ideal to take 20 mg in the evening. Also, it is important to monitor sugar levels regularly especially after breaking fast”, he said.


    S.Ramkumar, consultant diabetologist at Apollo Hospitals, says, heavy exercises should be avoided. “Break your fast in case of recurrent low sugar (70mg) or uncontrolled high sugar (300mg) or worsening of other related medical conditions. Pregnant women with diabetes are stratified as very high risk with a high probability of harm and are advised not to fast”, he added.


    Also, diabetics should avoid eating large quantities of dates, mango, banana, and sapota to break their fast at Iftar. They are advised to have small portions of apple, orange and guava.


    On the issue of Ramzan fasting, Dr M Satheedhudeen Baqvi, 44, Chief Imam of the Adyar Masjid and principal, Al-Hudha Arabic College, says, “I am a diabetic and I am observing fast after consulting my doctors.

    Quran allows exemption from fasting for those suffering from non-curable diseases but does not mention the names of any diseases. Those not fasting because of their non-curable diseases must make amends by giving out alms to the poor”.

    New drug to fight diabetic risks reaches Chennai
    A new oral drug named Empagliflozinn will help reduce the risk of cardiovascular deaths and heart failures significantly among people with high-risk type 2 diabetics.


    Talking to Deccan Chronicle here, city’s eminent endocrinologist Dr A. Ramachandran said Empa-Reg, a global study presented recently at American Diabetes Association (ADA), had suggested that the drug helps reduce the risk for new-onset or worsening kidney disease by 39 per cent in people with type 2 diabetes with established cardiovascular disease (CVD).


    The oral medicine, current available in Chennai, would help patients to effectively address the threat with a new standard of care. The medicine is integral to effective diabetes management, said Dr Ramachandran, who is also founder of Dr A. Ramachandran’s Diabetes Hospital.


    As per the results of the trial conducted across the world, Empagliflozin reduces the risk of cardiovascular death by 38 per cent and hospitalization for heart failure by 35 per cent in people with high risk type 2 diabetes, he said.


    Diabetes is known to be the major reason for people requiring dialysis and renal transplants. Dr Ramachandran said the trial was based on more than 7,000 patients from 42 countries, of which 163 patients with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease were from India.

    17% Indian pregnant women suffer from obesity, diabetes

    At least 17 per cent of the pregnant women in India are suffering from obesity and diabetes and carry a high risk of transferring the diseases to their babies, leading gynaecologist said on Friday.

    According to experts, hospital delivery has increased from 40 per cent to 80 per cent in the last five years but the maternal mortality rate is still 139 per 100,000 in India.

    "It is important for the people to know that 17 per cent of pregnant women are suffering from obesity and diabetes, which carry the risk of transferring the diseases to baby," said C.N. Purandare, Chairperson of International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO).

    Purandare was speaking at the inauguration of a three-day conference on "Best Practices, Breakthroughs and Current Dilemmas in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (OBGYC)" here.
    The conference is being organised by the Federation of Obstetric & Gynecological Societies of India (FOGSI) and FIGO.

    With over 300 experts addressing 1,200 delegates, the conference will include crucial issues like female foeticide and unsafe abortion.

    "The Indian government had banned abortion in '70s, in spite of this abortion is still prevalent across the country," said Purandare, adding that besides abortion, several deaths occur due to cervical cancer in India.

    Alka Kriplani, gynaecology academic at AIIMS and President of FOGSI, said: "There have been several recent advances in the management of infertility, cancer, safe motherhood, neonatal care and many more.

    Maternal mortality and prenatal mortality has shown significant reduction due to good quality antenatal care, hospital deliveries and effective referral of high-risk cases."

    Hema Divakar, FOGSI's Ambassador to FIGO, said: "More than 75,000 women die every single year due to cervical cancer compared to only 300 women in the West. This is because our women are diagnosed in advance stages where we cannot save lives."

    "Since the screening programme in the early detection is not efficient in our country the best option is to vaccinate all women between 9-45 years to decrease the burden of cervical cancer in generation next," she said.

    Obese fathers may raise high risk of cancer in daughters

    A new study states that paternal obesity may raise cancer risk in daughters. The study was conducted on mice and found out that female children born to obese fathers are at high risk of being overweight at their birth and throughout childhood.

    The studies showed that female mice pups born to obese fathers are also prone to delayed growth of their breast tissue as well as being at increased risk of developing breast cancer.

    Obesity changes the microRNA (miRNA) signature -- epigenetic regulators of gene expression -- in both the father's sperm and the daughter's breast tissue, suggesting that miRNAs may carry the epigenetic information from obese dads to their daughters.
    Lead researcher, Sonia de Assis, Assistant Professor at Georgetown University in the US says,'This study provides evidence that, in animals, a fathers' body weight at the time of conception affects both their daughters' body weight both at birth and in childhood as well as their risk of breast cancer later in life'.

    The miRNAs were identified to regulate the insulin receptor signalling, which is linked to alterations in body weight and other molecular pathways that are associated with cancer development.

    "Our animal study suggests that those epigenetic alterations in sperm may have consequences for next generation cancer risk," de Assis further added.

    Eating a balanced diet, keeping a healthy body weight and lifestyle is imperative for both men and women not only for their own benefit but also to give their children the best chances of being healthy, said the paper published online in the journal Scientific Reports.

    The next step is to see if the same associations regarding breast cancer risk hold for daughters of human fathers who are overweight around the time of conception, the researchers concluded.
