Magonjwa ya moyo na kiharusi ni katika magonjwa ambayo yanaua watu wengi ulimwenguni hasa wanawake.  Anza leo kuutunza moyo wako na kuzuia kiharusi.

Hatua zifuatazo zinaweza kukusaidia:

  • Pima msukumo wako wa damu (Blood pressure): kama upo juu (zaidi ya 120/80), jadili na daktari wako namna ya kupunguza.
  • Usivute sigara: sigara huumiza sio tu mapafu bali moyo pia.  Kama unavuta sigara jitahidi kuacha.
  • Kapime kiasi cha lehemu (cholesterol) mwilini mwako: Kama ipo juu (zaidi ya 200), jadili na daktari namna ya kupunguza, na pia namna ya kupunguza uzito iwapo umezidi.
  • Kapime sukari mwilini mwako: Kama una kisukari fuatilia kwa karibu kiasi cha sukari mwilini na fuata ushauri unaopewa na wataalamu ya afya.  Unapokua na ugonjwa wa kisukari unakuwa na uwezekano mkubwa pia wa kupata ugonjwa wa moyo.  Fuatilia matibabu na vipimo kama unavyoshauriwa.
  • Kuwa na uzito usiozidi kiasi:  Unene wa mwili unaleta hatari kubwa ya kupata magonjwa sugu yakiwepo ya moyo, kisukari na saratani.  Soma katika blog hii namna ya kupunguza uzito wa mwili.
  • Kuwa mwangalifu upande wa chakula:  Kula vyakula vinavyojenga afya ya moyo, vikiwepo mbogamboga na matunda kwa wingi. Tumia nafaka zisizokobolewa kama unga wa dona, ngano iliyokobolewa sana, tumia aina mbalimbali za kunde na maharage.  Punguza kiasi cha mafuta unachotumia, epuka mafuta yatokanayo na wanyama na nyama zenye mafuta.
  • Pungunza matumizi ya chumvi: badala ya chumvi tumia viungo kuongeza ladha katika mlo. (Viungo ni kama vitunguu saumu, tangawizi, giligilani, pilipili, ndimu na aina nyingine). Mwili wako unahitaji chumvi kidogo sana.
  • Epuka matumizi ya pombe:  kama imebidi kutumia pombe basi isizidi kipimo kimoja kwa siku.  Soma zaidi katika blog hii kuhusu pombe. Pombe huweza kuongeza msukumo wa damu (blood pressure) na pia huongeza uwezekano wa kupata kiharusi, na magonjwa mengine sugu ikiwepo saratani.
  • Fanya mazoezi ya mwili:  Fanya mazoezi ya mwili angalau dakika 30 kila siku.  Soma zaidi kuhusu mazoezi ya mwili.
  • Matumizi sahihi ya dawa ni muhimu: Kama umeelekezwa na daktari kutumia dawa za kupunguza msukumo wa damu hakikisha unatumia kama ulivyoelekezwa.  Muulize daktari kama una swali kuhusu dawa.

Be aware of things that puts you at higher risk of cancer.  Know yourself and your risks, and take action now! Any history of cancer among your parents or ancestors? Are you using tobacco or tobacco products? Examine your eating and exercising habits. Your alcohol consumption puts you at higher risk of mouth, throat and breast cancer..  Are you eating enough fruits and vegetables?  All these define your health and your risk for chronic diseases including cancer.  You may be at increased risk for cancer because of the wrong choices you make. Learn to make the right choices, get regular check-up (at least once a year).  Many cancers (about 60%) can be prevented through better lifestyle and many cancers can be treated if detected early..

The link with cancer:

  • There is convincing evidence that alcohol increases the risk of cancer of the oesophagus, mouth, throat (pharynx and larynx) and breast, as well as bowel cancer in men. It also increases the risk of liver cancer, and bowel cancer in women.
  • Research shows that alcohol is particularly harmful when combined with smoking, especially for oesophageal, mouth and throat cancer.
  • Bowel and breast cancer are two of the most common Cancers.  Experts estimate that about 43 percent of bowel cancer and about 42 percent of breast cancer could be prevented by not drinking alcohol, together with having a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight.

Remember:

  • Heavy drinking, or binge drinking, is particularly bad for our health, even if only done occasionally. It is also linked to high blood pressure
  •  Many cases of cancer could be prevented.  Get information on choosing a healthy diet, managing your weight and becoming more active to reduce your risk of getting cancer. Visit Jipende.com more often

Inaelekea ni vigumu sana wale waliozoea pombe kukubali ukweli kwamba unywaji wa pombe unaongeza uwezekano wa kupata saratani na magonjwa mengine.  Ukweli ni kwamba pombe inaongeza sana uwezekano wa kupata saratani hasa zile za koo, kinywa  ini na matiti.  Pamoja na matatizo hayo ya kiafya, pombe inaingilia uwezekano wa kufanya maamuzi mazuri, ikiwa ni pamoja na wakati wa kuendesha gari.  Kwa maana hiyo pombe huchangia sana ajali za barabarani.  Na kwa kuwa ajali za barabarani zinasababisha vifo na kufupisha maisha, ninaamini pombe ni kitu cha kuepuka sana.  Ndio maana hata polisi wa usalama barabarani wanamchukulia hatua mtu ambaye amekunywa pombe na kuendesha gari, na pia wakati mwingine wanazo mashine maalum za kumpima mtu ili kugundua kama amekunywa pombe kiasi kinachoathiri maamuzi.

Epuka matumizi ya pombe

Cha ajabu ni kwamba katika  wiki ya usalama barabarani hapa kwetu Tanzania (Dar es Salaam) 2010, kampuni moja ya bia imetoa msaada kwa polisi (kikosi cha usalama Barabarani), na msaada huo ni pamoja na stika zinazotangaza usalama barabarani lakini hapo hapo zinatangaza pombe.  Polisi hao kwa mikono yao wenyewe wameonekana wakibandika stika hizo zinazotangaza pombe kwenye magari. http://issamichuzi.blogspot.com/2010/08/tbl-yatoa-vifaa-vyenye-thamani-ya-zaidi.html Nadhani hapa kuna mgongano wa nia au taratibu ( “conflict of interest”).  Inasemekana kwamba kampuni hiyo imetoa pia fulana zenye ujumbe wa usalama barabarani lakini naamini pia zinatangaza pombe.  Naamini kikosi cha usalama barabarani wanahitaji kufikiria tena uamuzi wao huo wa kufadhiliwa na kampuni inayotengeneza pombe huku wakitangaza pombe. Iwapo imebidi kupokea ufadhili huo basi ni muhimu kikosi hicho kukubaliana na kampuni hiyo kwamba ufadhili huo hautahusisha matangazo ya pombe wala ya kampuni yao.

Naamini wengi wetu tungependa kutangaza usalama barabarani bila kutangaza pombe!  Tunapenda kutangaza vitu vinavyoongeza ubora wa maisha sio vinavyopunguza ubora wa maisha. Tukumbuke kwamba pombe pamoja na kuchangia ajali za barabarani, inachangia sana kuongeza uwezekano wa kupata saratani hasa zile za koo, kinywa, ini na matiti. http://jipende.com/archives/tag/alcohol/ .

Tuepuke matumizi ya pombe.  Jipende, ufunguo wa mtindo bora wa maisha upo mkononi mwako!

Kama hunywi pombe unayo sababu ya kufurahi sana, na kwamwe usianze kunywa pombe! Kama unakunywa pombe, punguza sana, na ukiweza acha. Hii ni kwa sababu imezidi kuthibitishwa kwamba pombe ina madhara mengi kiafya.

Wataalamu waliochunguza uhusiano wa unywaji pombe na uwezekano wa kupata saratani (cancer) wamepata uthibitisho wa kuridhisha na wa uhakika kwamba unywaji pombe unaongeza uwezekano wa kupata saratani (cancer) za mdomo, koo, koromeo, matiti na utumbo mkubwa. Pia uko uthibitisho wa kiasi unahusisha unywaji pombe na uwezekano wa kupata saratani ya ini.
