Is a raw food diet good for your health?

Or is it just a fad? Shameem Akthar, yogacharya trained with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, Trivandrum, talks about precautions one must take while eating raw food. The raw food devotees and advocates will insist that since our ancestors lived in jungles and ate raw, that would be what our system was used to, and going back to it is just a reversal to a way of being naturally healthy and vital. Every diet has its scientific basis as no doubt this one too does. Alternative therapies like ...

Revealed! The secret to staying young and looking great

Feeling old? Take charge of your life says Shameem Akhtar. We are in a very ageist society, which is very conscious of youthfulness as an ideal. Most products depend on the young to sell it, including products that are not necessarily targeted at youth. Research too is funded lavishly for elixirs that promise to restore youth.

Why skipping breakfast is BAD for your heart

A breakfast can save more than your day... it could save your life, says Shameem Akhtar. The spotlight is back on breakfast. Every dietician swears by it.

If you speak to your mother or grandmother, you will learn that breakfast used to be quite a ritual. A lot of good food was consumed, hot off the stove. It was ...

Behind the altruism, there is the fervent hope that the workers remain healthy and therefore regular at work. Does all ...

10-minute fix: Calm yourself down in a jiffy!

Here are five simple tricks to de-stress yourself quickly The trick about stress is, to first acknowledge that you cannot do without it!

Top 5: The silliest health myths you must not fall for

A fresh insight into the five things that have been for long viewed as total no-no for our health and well-being. For long some things have been dismissed as addictive and therefore, bad for us. To convince us the naysayers wave research in our face. Since the media follows research like hound follows a spoor, the naysayers have been able to have their say even more convincingly. However, things do turn topsy-turvy. We are now smart enough to know that some research may be motivated by vested ...
