Role of Digital Technology in Fitness Industry

unnamed.jpg

Everything is going digital, everyone is joining the digital wagon and so is fitness. Earlier people had very fewer resources and awareness regarding health and fitness. People were only aware of gyms and had very fewer resources for home workouts. There were no fitness apps which could help people to work on their target zones where ever they want . People can now carry their fitness trainers right inside their pocket. Everything one can imagine can now be carried in our smartphones. People are always glued to their phone, and therefore fitness apps are getting more popular because people prefer to have everything inside their phone.

Technology has brought a lot of opportunities for people both in employability and as a help to people. More and more people are working in the fitness industry because it is easier now than before to reach out to people and motivate them. Social media platforms have changed the dynamics of the fitness industry and have given it the boost it needed. Now people can have access to different exercises, diet plans only by sitting at their homes.

We can have exercises right at the comfort of sitting at our home with just one click, There are numerous apps which provide workouts for different target zones. The internet is loaded with health and fitness pages everywhere. The resources that people are now accessible to are growing day by day. People share their fitness regimes on social platforms which plays a great role in motivating people. By seeing them, People are putting stress into working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We can get access to nutritionists sitting in any part of the world and have our own customized diet plan. The way fitness industry used to work is changed with the rise in the digital market. It has scaled up the popularity of fitness and health among people. Many apps focus on the overall health of the person, they provide guided meditation, counseling and what not. The relationship of the customer with the company is closer now due to digital markets. People always take guidance or check for anything online first. Fitness blogs give people the right set of knowledge that they need to consider for their health. The amount of knowledge that people can access now was not the case earlier. There were very less resources to give people the latest trends of fitness. People can now do Yoga, Zumba, Aerobics, weight training just by downloading an app.

Technology has given a new shape to the fitness industry and gives people the opportunity to explore various career options in the fitness industry. Today one can work as a wellness speaker, run a gym, write fitness blogs, share videos on health and fitness, be a fitness model, develop a fitness app and what not. The opportunities are never-ending as more and more people prefer the internet for any information. Fitness companies can now run their business digitally and connect to people and build more trust with their people.

RELIEF FROM ARTHRITIS AND JOINT PAINS NATURALLY !!

BLOG BY DR. SONICA KRISHAN

Relief From Arthritis And Joint Pains Naturally !!

Joint Pain often comes along as we age, our joints start to give up & gradually the pain also starts to grow. It is winters that are known to cause maximum damage to the joints. This is mainly due to external cold & dryness which amplifies the problem and makes it difficult for us to bear the associated swelling & pain. It is usually during this shift of weather that the symptoms of possible arthritis may start to surface.

Here are some brilliant natural assistance that could be supplemented for relieving joint pains:

1. Triphala Guggul

It is an age-old & tested herbal preparation and something which Ayurveda absolutely recommends, especially in case of joint pains. Triphala is a mix of 3 incredibly healthy herbs viz. Baheda, Amla and Harad. This is a great source of antioxidants and detoxifying agents. Guggulu is a gum resin obtained from Myrrh. It adds an extra share of anti-inflammatory benefits to the combination. Along with polyphenols and flavonoids, these act against the inflammation causing agents, thus relieving joint pains.

2. Boswellia

Boswellia serrata is basically the gum resin extracted from Boswellia tree. It combats a variety of inflammatory issues in our body, and research swears by its contribution in treating some of the severest cases of arthritis.

3. Calcium

Calcium is one of the most obvious must have in our diet. It is also recommended to be taken as an essential supplement in order to make up for any possible lack of this particular nutrient in our body. Calcium deficiency has maximum chances of making us prone to many bones and joint related issues. Therefore, make sure to add dark green, leafy vegetables, low-fat milk, cheese & other dairy products to your diet. On the other hand, you need to ensure that your body is absorbing that calcium. That’s why it is important to sunbathe and include sufficient vitamin D in our everyday diet.

4. Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a chemical compound that is found in our body, is something that naturally contributes in building and taking care of the cartilage, which provides natural cushioning between our joint bones. With age, the amount of Glucosamine our body creates becomes insufficient & that is when there comes a need for us to look for supplements. Adding sufficient Glucosamine levels help in easing the pain and the subsequent stiffness of the joints.

5. Salmon Oil

Sufficient inclusion of Salmon Oil in our diet helps in maintaining healthy, supple joints. Salmon oil is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. It reduces the inflammation & therefore, any possible progression of joint pains & arthritis. Complimented with regular exercise, the Salmon Oil also ensures ample flow of blood to our joints and maintains their overall health and mobility.

How social media has revolutionized the empire of sports and fitness

Social media is a virtual platform which allows people from all over the world to communicate with other people or a whole community. It’s a powerful way to get in touch with millions of people by just posting their content on any social media platform and it immediately reaches out in the world full of people who are waiting to put their views on them. It gives a person the freedom to share their opinion about anything that they like or dislike. And since there are hundreds of social media platforms in one form or the other, people are joining these platforms in large numbers. Now with such a wide array of options, where one is free to advertise their own products, in front of millions of people, that too with minimum investment, who wouldn’t want to take it seriously?

Why are people choosing social media to advertise their products?

redes-sociales-movil-bbva-1024x605.jpg

Today if we look at the recently updated stats as on November 2018, the total worldwide population is 7.6 billion out of which nearly 4.2 billion people have an access to the internet. And now with the stretch of internet growing so far, approximately 3.03 billion people have become an active social media user on a daily basis. With so many platforms that are available on social media like Gmail, Instagram, Facebook, twitter, etc. researchers have found out that on an average, a single person is likely to have approximately 5.54 social media accounts. And the average time they spend on social media is close to 116 minutes a day. Instant messaging sites such as Facebook and Whatsapp share nearly 60 billion messages per day. Well if this isn’t surprising enough, studies have also found that between the second quarter of 2017 and the third quarter of 2017, the number of social media users grew by 121 million which on a roughly basis estimates that every 15 second, a new social media account was created.  Now with a number like that, who wouldn’t want to advertise their product on such a massive although virtual platform!

Influence of social media on the business of sports and fitness

Now a days, a common thing on all social media platforms are the posts updated by people which comes right from their gym with a full body selfies in front of the gym mirrors, dressed in the expensive yet beautiful workout attires, which flaunts their body like it was made in heaven with those not so tasty protein shakes in their hand. Clearly this is the kind of picture most of us see on a daily basis once we log in to our social media accounts. Adding some more creativity to it, some people like to post their regular exercise videos with some dope motivational music playing in the background, like they were asked to prepare for a battle which is never actually going to take place, or at least that’s what we can hope for. Now the thing is no matter how much we deny it, at some point or the other, we all have been galvanized by these people with unrealistic picture perfect body. We then try to follow their footsteps even if one can’t afford to pay for the gym. We try to follow to their eating habits, their exercise routine and in fact the way they dress up for those workout sessions and try to look as fit as them. And we don’t just adapt but we try to stick to that routine as much as we can and for as long as one can.  Thus in one way or the other social media starts to influence our mind and our lifestyle. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we allow them to make changes in our daily routine whether we are ready for it or not.

Marketing strategies of sports and fitness business on social media

Today from a common man to a celebrity everyone is on social media. But with time social media has managed to build up a new kind of celebrity list, which includes people with a huge number of fan following. This mass fan following is mainly because either they are extremely good at something, or they look beautiful or are “gym freaks”!  Now these so called ‘gym freaks’ or the ‘fitness freaks’ are the people whom we, as normal followers look up to. We want to know their whole life through their social media profile. Now this is the point where sports and fitness business comes into play. Theses business companies approach such influencers whose social media profile is completely dedicated to sports and fitness activities and of course have a huge ‘following’ base!  They ask them to advertise their products by posting pictures with it. This advertisement can be for workout apparels, sports shoes, protein shakes, or even the gym itself. After all, the gyms also want to attract customers to them!! The strategy is so simple and affordable. And the best part about it is that this kind of marketing strategy has a global reach. The success of this strategy has been proved as well because a plan which was initially started by low budget sports and fitness business are now being adopted by big brands like Adidas and Nike. All one has to do is to pay these Instagram bloggers turned celebrities a decent amount of money depending on the number of followers they have and in return they help these companies to advertise their product on a mass scale.

Conclusion

The social media in many ways has revolutionized the world and the journey of sports and fitness business is just a beginning.  There is a lot of scope for a business like this to make it big into the market with the help of social media.  With 3.03 billion of daily active users, social media has given a platform to even small budget business as well to reach out to people on a global level.  And one should make full use of it by getting along with this revolution that has just begun.

HOW HERBAL MOUTHWASH IS BETTER CHOICE THAN CHEMICAL-BASED COUNTERPARTS?

BLOG BY DR. SONICA KRISHAN

turmeric-f.jpg

It is rightly alleged that a poor oral health can lead to a poor overall health. And if that does not stress enough on the importance of having healthy teeth and gums, there is more o notice. A study indicates that more than three-fourth of the world population believes that teeth contribute more to their overall appearance. And this against good hair and facial features. It, therefore, becomes all the more important to ensure having strong, shining teeth and a good oral health.

Dental Issues Are Common

Now, owing to a number of reasons, every now and then we find ourselves suffering from one or the other dental issues. Some common problems include cavities, plaque, bleeding gums and inflammation, gingivitis, foul mouth odour, among others.

More Harm Than Good

Many a times we resort to using mouthwash of all sorts, which might provide immediate freshness and short term relief from these common oral problems. However, in the long run, these tend to do more harm than good. This is because –

  • Most of these mouthwashes not only disrupt the oral micro-biomes but also make your mouth all the more dry.
  • Thus leading to oral issues of decreased oral hygiene and the problem of bad breath.
  • Not only this, dental cavities could be one of the common problems arising out of everyday usage of these chemical laden mouthwashes.
  • Inflammation in the mouth cavity.
  • Frequent mouth ulcers could crop up.
  • and sometimes, even oral cancer.

Chemical-Based Mouthwash

Belonging to a class of drugs called anti-microbials, these synthetic and chemical based mouthwashes are an effective antiseptic, yet we need to be careful, since this germicidal mouthwash also comes with its own share of side effects.

  • These include a gradual appearance of brownish stains on the teeth.
  • Also, using the synthetic mouthwashes for more than four weeks on regular basis might cause some serious staining on the teeth which would only come off after scaling and polishing.
  • Besides, there could be oral issues like irritation of mouth / throat, increased sensitivity, excessive deposition of tartar, soreness of mouth lining and an increasingly dry mouth are also a few observations which users have often complained of.
  • A certain change in taste perception is another problem that has been faced by people using the chemical mouth rinse.
  • Lastly, some people might also be severely allergic to the very use of the chemical based mouthwashes.

Natural Is Effective

That is why, if you must, the chemical based mouthwash should only be used for a very short term. Making it a part of your everyday oral hygiene is not really recommended. For that, we have some natural and extremely effective, herb based mouth rinse which can be assured of long term gains on our overall oral health and hygiene.

Turmeric Based Mouthwash

Turmeric is a miracle herb, with a list of healthcare benefits which dates back to ages. Curcumin, one of the most active and effective compounds found in turmeric, is basically what renders the herb the widest range of properties that make turmeric all that popular and sought-after, be it in the beauty industry or healthcare sector. And it is curcumin which is precisely what makes turmeric exhibit some excellent cleansing properties, as far as our oral health is concerned.

Why Is It Popular?

Turmeric based mouthwash is fast gaining popularity and it has many reasons for this.

  • First, it comes to use as people are increasingly turning to nature for relief that is effective, immediate and minus any side effects.
  • Then, this mouthwash is not only easy on the mouth cavity, but also all the more effective when it comes to some common oral problems.
  • Moreover, being gentle as it is on your teeth as well as gums, its regular usage helps deep clean your teeth, keep the gums strong and healthy.
  • Not only this, its regular usage also helps prevent the oral bacteria from lingering inside your mouth that could be leading to mouth odour and a plethora of other problems.
  • Therefore, the Turmeric rinse definitely fights inflammation but also any kind of irritation associated with your oral health.
  • Not to forget that its antiviral and antibacterial properties prevent cavities from building up in the first place.
  • And also averts the onset of gingivitis and promotes the healing of inflamed or bleeding gums.

More Suitable Option

The natural herbs like turmeric based mouthwash, unlike the synthetic counterparts are a big help for your oral health and hygiene.

  1. The natural mouthwashes prevent your teeth from staining, thus checking the accumulation of plaque.
  2. Rather, These help to keep your teeth white and shining.
  3. Besides, the fact that this mouthwash is naturally loaded with antioxidants (as in case of turmeric/curcumin based) is what further-more helps to look after the long-term health of your gums and teeth.
  4. Therefore, in case you happen to be one of those who use mouthwashes on a regular basis for retaining the health and strength of the oral cavity, it is time you switch to the all-natural goodness of natural herbs like turmeric.

Why You Need Healthy Lifestyle Change?

There are a number of lifestyle related diseases like obesity, hypertension, anxiety, diabetes, indigestion, allergies et al and there are many more cropping up. Now, the problem with these lifestyle ailments is this –

  • These lifestyle diseases are actually depriving and deluding.
  • Also, you must understand that these are also somehow prying with our natural comfort of well-being.

  • The everyday lifestyle citation has been laid down since ancient times by the sages of Ayurveda therapy.
  • And this reference guide comes true even today as wisdom excerpt to modern lifestyle.

What Are Factors Of Lifestyle?

Ayurveda counsels Balance for Natural well being which can be essentially regarded as one of the basic factors of lifestyle.

  • This is evident by the Ayurveda adage – Dosha dhatu mala moolam hi shareeram.
  • And a natural balance of doshas, dhatus and malas is regarded essential for the normal working both of the body as well as mind.

Three Pillars Of Natural Well-Being

According to Ayurveda science, three pillars support the ‘building’ of our health and well-being. These are –

  1. Balanced Diet
  2. Everyday Exercise

1. Balanced Diet Specifications

Ayurveda strongly relates your everyday diet to your mind and body. This means when you take diet in its purest form, this further purifies ‘Satva’ property of the mind and in turn creates a positivism and freshness on the mind.

2. Everyday Exercise

  • A brisk walk early in the morning is a good form of exercise.
  • These exercises should be according to your own strength and tolerance power.
  • Also, the everyday exercises are helpful to relieve stress and strain.
  • And as and when you incorporate them in your lifestyle, notice that these also are a good aid to increase the body’s resistance against disease.

3. Proper Rest And Relaxation

  • Sound sleep for seven to eight hours is the best form of rest.
  • This helps the body and mind to relax completely.
  • Not only this, when you are taking proper rest also helps you regain the daily loss of energy.

 

Ayurveda Lifestyle Management Tips

The Ayurveda lifestyle management guide inculcates the small and yet significant steps towards everyday living. You need to consider following tips makes way for a natural and healthy lifestyle guidance.

KETO DIET

The “keto” diet is any extremely low- or no-carbohydrate diet that forces the body into a state of ketosis. Ketosis occurs when people eat a low- or no-carb diet and molecules called ketones build up in their bloodstream. Low carbohydrate levels cause blood sugar levels to drop and the body begins breaking down fat to use as energy. Ketosis is actually a mild form of ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis mostly affects people with type 1 diabetes. In fact, it is the leading cause of death of people with diabetes who are under 24 years of age.

However, many experts say ketosis itself is not necessarily harmful. Some studies, in fact, suggest that a ketogenic diet is safe for significantly overweight or obese people. However, other clinical reviews point out that patients on low-carbohydrate diets regain some of their lost weight within a year.Keto, Ketogenic diet, low carb, healthy food

 

The keto-type diets usually work only in the short term and can be unhealthy. For starters, most of the lost weight is water weight. Once your body enters ketosis, you also begin to lose muscle, become extremely fatigued, and eventually enter starvation mode. Then it actually becomes even harder to lose weight. Keto diets should only be used under clinical supervision and only for brief periods. They have worked successfully on some cancer patients in conjunction with chemotherapy to shrink tumors and to reduce seizures among people suffering from epilepsy.

In the general population a keto diet should only be considered in extreme cases. It can do more harm than good. It can damage the heart, which is also a muscle.

But there are many other ways to do it besides a fad diet that won’t keep weight off long-term. a keto diet will do more harm than good for the majority of patients, especially if they have any underlying kidney or liver issues. People are using this for cosmetic reasons, but it’s so extreme that it’s dangerous.

There are some concerns about the effectiveness and healthiness of the keto diet, mainly because there’s not much scientific evidence regarding it. There are some small studies supporting the benefits of the keto diet, no substantiated evidence-based research has been published and, most concerning, the long-term impact of the keto diet is unclear.

Some nutritionists are worried that by shunning carbs, people will miss out on crucial nutrients found mainly in carb-laden fruits and vegetables. Several nutrients vital to health are contained in carbohydrate-dense foods, including fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains. Just one medium apple contains about 17 grams of net carbs. This is concerning because these vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients contained in the above foods are vital to heath, immunity and disease prevention.
