Hepatitis A or Jaundice
Keep yourself safe! We tell you how!
Avoid heavy, salty food as it promotes water retention and bloating. It is better to have medium to low salt food.
Start body massages once a week with a light oil like olive oil. Massages promote the lymph channels movement which not only aids to decrease the bloating but also assists weight loss by improving the bile flow.
Eat light foods like vegetables, fruits, cereals etc and avoid too much of meat or fish. One can also enjoy grilled, tandoori foods which need minimum oil/butter.
Avoid fried foods as they decrease the digestive efficiency.
Do not indulge in heavy exercises, instead walking along with yoga or stretching is better as heavy exercises cause an increase in body temperature which leads to headaches, body aches etc.
Eat foods which are drying in nature, the most popular being corn, chickpea, gram flour, oats. Eating watery foods like rice, lassi, watermelon, muskmelon creates swelling in the body.
Maintain the general hygiene while eating out and definitely avoid roadside vendors as very few people have the high immunity to handle the bacterial overload at such places.
Avoid foods which are very sour like tamarind, chutneys and pickles as they promote water retention.
Wash all green vegetables thoroughly as a lot of worms and insects are hidden in the leafy vegetables.
Consume a lot of bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and bitter herbs like basil, fenugreek seeds, turmeric as it prevents infection.
