Taking Care Of Your Bones

Climbing the highest mountains, running the longest marathons, peaceful promenades at parks and breaking into a swim past the incoming waves would be just mere fantasies if not for the mobility and flexibility that has been facilitated by our bones and joints. But for most, while the peak of their activity hits during childhood and 20’s, a gradual and sometimes sudden decline can be seen as aging begins to take a toll on these bones and wear and tear [...]

Going Vegan: What You Should Know

“My body will not be a tomb for other creatures” - Leonardo Da Vinci The food cycle, though, a biologically accepted concept of sustaining life on earth cannot be ‘digested,’ both in the ethical as well as literal sense (by everyone), for reasons that come from either the enormity of their hearts or for other personal health implications. Every year, the world celebrates Veganism in the month of November to create awareness as well as to encourage people to embrace the [...]

Fitness Tailored For You

Long, exhaustive workouts that seem futile can be very demotivating for a person. If you've put in the time and effort and still see no visual results, the most common thought process is, “maybe this isn’t for me…” Often, this leads to us talking ourselves into accepting our fate of never reaching our fitness goals. Research shows that while people only tend to look at the big picture, it’s important to dig deeper. This is where fitness genetics comes into [...]

Megan On A Mission: Telomeres And Your Anti Aging Strategy

“Age is just a number”, is something we've heard all our lives. Sadly though, this just isn't true - scientifically speaking. What they should have been saying was “you’re only as young as your telomeres are short”. Telomeres are the parts of your chromosome (at the end of your DNA) where all your aging and anti-aging questions are concerned, and the potential answer to a real-life fountain of youth- literally inside of you! Studies show that the most encompassing way scientists [...]

Movember: The Hairy Tale Month

The 30 day ‘No shave November’ challenge started in 2003 with two friends from Australia attempting to bring back the moustache to the forefront of fashion. It soon grew into a larger vision when they drew inspiration from breast cancer awareness and decided to dedicate November towards Men’s Health Awareness, simply naming it “Movember”. What started off as a mission to promote research on prostate cancer, has today expanded its issues to that of testicular cancer and mental health. The [...]

The Chronic Flare

More than 20 per cent of the UAE population suffers from some kind of arthritis. The physical pain inflicted by a chronic illness such as arthritis is accentuated when the emotional fear of missing out on life’s beautiful adventures drags itself into the rather melancholy picture. People with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) receive diagnosis late. For instance, fibromyalgia remains undiagnosed in up to three out of four people and diagnosis time averages five years. The key to dealing with [...]

world obesity day

The Big Problem

None of us feel especially proud when the number on our weighing scales reads anything more than to say ‘healthy’. Fighting the ‘obese’ tag is not just a physical struggle but an emotional warfare because not only do you go hard on yourself but society makes it even harder by judging the extra fat with no mercy. With current trends, 2.7 billion adults will be overweight and obese by 2025. World Obesity Day is celebrated on October 11 to [...]

Karmagenes – Know Your DNA Personality

“Am I an extrovert or an introvert?” “Why do some behaviors come easily to others, and not to me?” “How likely am I to take risks or think strategically or follow my passions?” Such existential questions often keep people preoccupied, leading them to a variety of personality tests in a quest to understand themselves better. As most of these tests are based on self-assessments, there is often a high risk of inaccuracy based on the test taker’s subjectivity or [...]
