Inadequate diet, lack of proper sleep and complete neglect of ignorance have been the main problems precipitating many a health problems that we face today.Eat like a king for breakfast has been the norm but neither the kids who are in a rush to make it to the school bus nor the adults who have to log on at work find this first meal of the day in their agenda.

Live healthy

It is a fact that most of the breakfast menu does not contain fats and would afford more of the minerals and vitamins it is and ideal food. It would keep off the hunger pangs till lunchtime while enhancing alertness, attention and performance at study or at work. It is also a mistake to take it as a part of "weight-loss" programme as such people are more prone to be found at the coffee or tea vending machines at office which would contain sugar and naturally would not help. Needless to say they tend to overeat at lunch. If the time to eat breakfast is a constraint children can utilise the "short-break" at school and the workforce can take a few minutes off just before their work schedule. At least seven hours of sleep is essential to keep our metabolism at its agile best during daytime. Insufficient sleep is bound to negatively affect memory, learning and logical reasoning and hurt the children at their pursuits. Adults are more cranky and tired, which would affect their mental and emotional well-being. Unfortunately the idiot box seems to command most of the time and is leading to sleep deprivation. Physical exercise gives a lot of benefits such as weight control, keeping at bay diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, heart disease has the propensity to maintain the health of muscles, bones and joints. Apart from the day-to-day life there are certain elements which come in the way of individuals unable to do the above said. It is then homeopathic medicine would help. People complain of lack of appetite and Hydrastis corrects it while heaviness and distension on eating little is improved by Kali bich. People with a tendency to stimulants who tend to miss a healthy breakfast are put on track by Antim crud. If people cannot find the calmness of mind to sleep it will be provided by Kali phos and slightest sounds disturb their sleep it will be corrected by Theridion. Emotional and brooding people who find forty winks difficult to come by find solace with Aurum met. DR. VENUGOPAL GOURI
