I have been working in the software technology services space for over 15 years. In my professional life I help in implementing quality standards like ISO, CMMi & Six Sigma to make developers and testers jobs easier & process oriented. Through this blog I am sharing similar techniques coupled with age old wisdom from my mom and grand mom to make our living healthier and medicine free. To work in any new field, it helps if you read and train too, and I did the same. Have got a diploma in Naturopathy from Mumbai to enhance my knowledge and skills on this topic that I am passionate about

Imagine returning home after a tiring day at work, beating the heat and traffic. Or returning from a day out grocery shopping or making the most of the seasonal sales. Sipping a glass of cold water back in the comfort of your home can completely refresh you. But what if you have something to make the water more interesting and more refreshing? While having friends over at home, we all like to serve something different. What if you have a refreshing as well as a healthy option available? I recently came across the newly launched iced brews from TE-A-ME teas,…

The early years of a child have a defining impact on their general progress and brain development. During the initial stages, special care should be taken of a child’s diet along with exposure to different experiences and stimulators. Feeding the child brainpower starts right from the time he or she is conceived. Talk to any pregnant mother, and they would tell you how the family, especially the elders fuss about their nutrition. And rightly so. Having a balanced diet, eating on time, avoiding junk food and including brain foods from the time you are pregnant through your nursing days is…

When we talk about health, there is so much said about women’s and children’s health. Also, when it comes to taking care of their health women are known to be more pro-active than men. We have our periodic checkups, gynecologist appointments, and are more self-conscious when it comes to looking after our bodies. Whereas with men, they generally visit a doctor when they are ill and not proactively to monitor their health. And probably this could be one of the reasons why the life expectancy of women is higher. According to the latest U.S. report, life expectancy for the ladies is…

Menstruation is important body function, just like any other, say respiration or digestion. Yet often, across the world, discussing it openly has an element of discomfort or shame. When you think back to the last couple of generations, even educating daughters about periods was done just after they got their period or their friends got it or they heard of it in school and had the courage to ask their moms. Sex education in schools too was not heard of, in-fact chapters related to the reproductive system were often skipped or given for self-study.Things are much better now, with so…

A well balanced diet combined with regular physical activity is the cornerstone of good health. But often, due to our lifestyle there isn’t enough time to cook and our diet takes a back seat.Studies have shown that weight gain pattern in women differs from that in men. Also, women generally are more conscious and struggle with weight issues more than men. This often leads to trying different kinds of diets and eating habits, all of which may not be healthy. But there are certain times in a woman’s life when diet is of utmost importance and pregnancy is the most…

Having had multiple dentist visits in the recent past, I cannot stress enough on the importance of oral hygiene and teach our toddlers how to care for their teeth. Since children have their milk teeth for the initial years before they erupt, often oral hygiene sometimes takes a backseat in the initial years. But the habits that we teach in the formative years stick around the most. And often, as parents we are not too sure about the right time to start brushing, fluoride or non-fluoride, when to visit the doctor, what to do about cavities and other aspects of…

Colors are very closely connected to our emotions. “Morning Blues”, “Green with envy”, “Purple with rage”, “Pink of health” We often use colors to describe how we are feeling as well.  While dressing up too, we tend to wear vibrant colors like red, yellow, orange when we are really happy, and choose the dull grays when we are not so happy. It is a known fact that colors do affect one’s feelings, moods and emotions. But a not so known fact is that colors can be used for healing the body too based on their electrical and healing properties.

“Hygiene is two-thirds of health” So, when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene I make no compromises. Be it at home, in the kitchen or even my car. And like all moms, keeping my babies clean, hygienic, germ-free and as away from chemical and toxins is a priority. Since the time I became a mommy, there are  2 things that are always in any bag or purse I carry – Wet wipes and a sanitizer. And so, when I heard about the Mother Sparsh wet wipes which are 98% water I knew I had to give it a try. Mother…

A few days ago, while talking to a friend, I was really impressed by something she said. She said that in her house, no one can use the word “NO”; and this does not apply only to the kids but even to the parents. So, even if they have to say no to something, they will say “maybe later” or explain without using the negatives. While this might seem to be difficult, with some effort, patience and practice this is possible. And when I see her children, they are so full of positivity and ready to take on anything.This made…
