Magnet Therapy

Magnet therapy is a much talked about alternative pain relief treatment these days. This is the reason that magnets are used in mattresses, belts, shoes bracelets and many other products and the demand for magnetic products is increasing tremendously. People in pain are now looking forward for soft treatments rather than taking pain killers and going under surgeries. The market of magnet therapy products is vast and growing with the time and you will find a wide variety of magnetic therapy products online for various purposes.

Types of Magnets: 
There are two types of magnets static and permanent. But among the two the static magnet of different strengths are used for health purpose. The static magnet is incorporated in leg and arm wraps, shoe inserts, bracelets, mattress pads-pillows, hair brushes, necklaces and more. Also it is seen that individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia who used magnets had noticed a significant decrease in pain.
Magnetic pillow

How magnet therapy works? 
For treatment thin, metal magnets of various sizes and strength are placed in close proximity to the painful areas of the body. The magnets produce a magnetic field which reduces the pain; according to some studies magnetic field causes changes in nerve cell function which results in blocking the pain signals while the other studies states that magnet relax capillary walls boosting the blood flow to the painful areas. The magnet strength is described in terms of “gauss” or “Telsa” and 1 Telsa is equal to 10,000 gauss. Magnets which are used for treatment have higher magnetic strength and therapeutic magnets generally in the range of 200 to 10,000 gauss.

Magnet Therapy not for everyone: 
 Every treatment has a cautionary measure to follow and same applies to the magnet therapy as well. For example magnet therapy is not recommended during pregnancy, patients with epilepsy, patients who are on blood thinning medications or suffering from internal bleeding. Magnet therapy should be avoided if the patient is having an internal heart pacemaker as the magnet will interfere with the signals to heart. Medical and health specialist recommends patients not to replace their conventional medicines with the magnet therapy. The patients are advised to consult their health providers before seeking the magnet therapy and in case of severe injury, pain or disease they should take conventional treatment.

Magnet therapy is a billion dollar market which claims to cure many diseases. But it is also true that all individuals are not same and have their own medical and physiological state. It is not necessary that what works for one will be beneficial for another person. So it is advisable to consult a health provider before opting for magnet therapy.

Maternity Belts

Back pain and discomfort are the most common symptom that every pregnant women experience. During pregnancy it’s not only the tummy that changes but back and hips too make adjustments as ligaments loosen and the weight re-distributes. As the baby’s weight increases it puts extra pressure on the bladder which ultimately results in chronic lower back pain. To find relief some women opt for the support wears which gives extra support to belly. There are various types of support products available online which caters to needs of pregnant women.

Tips for Choosing Right Walking Aids

If you or your loved one is suffering from mobility difficulties due to foot surgery or an accident then it is important to find an appropriate walking aid. Finding an appropriate walking aid can help them in recover fast, maintain proper balance and increase independence. Today, there is a huge selection of walking aid available online such as canes, crutches and walkers but finding the correct walking aid is important. Many of us are in a mind frame that all mobility aids are same and can be used for any purpose. But by ignoring the importance of selecting the correct device results in selecting inappropriate, damaged or wrong height devices.

It is important to understand that getting a correct walking aid helps in faster recovery and gives secure footing. Selecting a correct walking aid is not an easy task as different walking aids cater to different needs. Below I have discussed in detail about Canes and Crutches which can help you in selecting the correct device.


Canes are the widely used walking aid as they support weight and prevent falls. These are used when a person requires limited support or have minor difficulties with balance, instability or weakness in leg. And before purchasing a cane its style and length should be taken in to consideration.
Style: There are various handgrip styles and shapes available and the most common style is single point and quad or three point cane. It is suggested that people who suffer from arthritis should use single point cane while the patients with neurological impairments should use quad cane. But the cane which can be easy to grip and feel comfortable should be selected. Canes with four feet provide better stability than straight canes but they can be heavy or difficult to use and carry.


Crutches are used when a person has gone under a surgery or injury and is not able to use the legs to support the weight. Crutch transfers the weight from legs to the upper body. They come in two types namely the underarm crutch and the forearm crutch and are suitable for the people with upper body strength. Things to consider while buying crutches are:
Style: An ideal crutch is one which gives comfortable grip and provides proper padding on top.
Length: It is important to select the correct crutch length which will properly fit to the user. An improper fitted crutch will result in muscle pain or nerve damage. A crutch should give enough room to fit 2 to 3 fingers between underarm and top of the crutch which allows user to stand straight comfortably with his elbow bent 15 or 30 degree as the hands rest on handles.

So now don’t let surgery or injury force you to stick to one place or to a wheelchair. Move around freely and heal your problems. Also consult your doctor before choosing a walking aid.

Diabetes Care Tips

“Be stronger than diabetes”
Changing your lifestyle could be a big step towards diabetes prevention and it's never too late to start. Life with diabetes should be full and satisfying.

Consider these 5 simple tips to manage diabetes properly.

  1. Exercise Regularly- One of the most powerful antidotes for insulin resistance is exercise. There are many benefits of regular physical activity. Exercise can help you to lose weight, lower your blood sugar, boost your sensitivity to insulin etc. This will help you to keep your blood sugar within a normal range. Research shows that both aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greater benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.
  2. Include fiber in your meals- It's rough, it's tough — and it may help you to reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control, lower your risk of heart disease and make you feel energetic. Foods high in fiber are fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
  3. Choose healthy oils & fats- The message to limit the unhealthy saturated fats is particularly pertinent and strong for people with diabetes. You have three goals when it comes to oils and fats:
      1.   Limit cheese, butter and sour cream instead use low-fat or fat-free versions of these. Eat small servings of lean protein sources.
      2.   Get more fat from mono- and polyunsaturated sources by using liquid cooking oils from vegetables, nuts, or seeds.
      3.   Cut your fat-gram count to trim daily calories. Thick cream dressing on salad, butter on toast, and sour cream on a baked potato adds extra calories. Counting fat grams is a successful strategy to achieve weight loss in multicenter diabetes studies.
  4. Quench your craving- High blood sugar can suppress your sense of thirst, fooling you into thinking you’re hungry when all you really need is a drink. The next time you get a between-meal craving, have a glass of water and wait 20 minutes. If the urge to eat doesn’t subside, you’re legitimately hungry. Have a few apple slices or some other healthy snack. Sip a black tea, either hot or iced. Besides hydrating you, black tea aids in controlling blood sugar.
  5. Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices- Low-carb diets or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known in long term. Think variety and portion control as part of an overall healthy eating plan. 
A number of health drinks and food are available at Health Vistas to improve insulin sensitivity like Mylife ACV- Apple Cider Vinegar Juice, Aumfresh Sugarherb Herbal Sweetener & more. For more insight into diabetes care tips visit :

Acupressure Therapy

Acupressure is an age-old practice with origins in China. It applies the same principles as acupuncture to promote relaxation and wellness and to treat diseases. But what exactly is acupressure and how does it work?

The theory of acupressure
Acupressure is an effective form of stimulation used to help relax the muscles. It is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, acupressure therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments. It is ideal for self-treatment and for boosting the immune system. Acupressure releases tension, increases blood circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health.

How does acupressure work? 
Acupressure therapy involves the use of fingers, palms, elbows, feet or special devices to apply pressure to acupoints on the body's meridians. Acupressure is often administered by an acupuncturist with the person receiving the acupressure lying on a massage table. Acupressure can also be self-administered, although it's best to consult an acupuncturist for proper instructions. The pressure is often increased for about 30 seconds, held steadily for two minutes and then gradually decreased to 30 seconds. The goal of acupressure is to restore health and balance of the body's channels of energy. It is aimed at regulating the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy).

What are the ways to administer acupressure?
There are a number of ways to administer acupressure.
  1. Use deep, firm pressure to massage and stimulate each pressure point.
  2. When massaging acupoints, try to relax in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and breathe deeply.
  3. Repeat the massage as often as you like; there is no limit of the number of times a day.
  4. Besides massaging these points on yourself, anyone can also help massage these points for you. 
What are the different acupressure products available for you? 
An exclusive range of acupressure products are available in the market for specific ailments. Choose from a variety of products like Star Health AC-15 Acupressure Slippers, ACS Acu Magnetic Shoe Insoles, ACS Twister Body Weight Reducer-DISC, ACS Deluxe Magnetic Pillow & many more. These help to get rid of excess fat and flabby muscles. In addition to this, acupressure therapy tones up spinal nerves and removes stiffness.

Sleep Well Tips

Do you often feel tired, weary and irritated? Having trouble getting a good sleep at night? Getting a good night sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health and well-being. Adequate sleep gives your body time and energy to recover from the previous day's stress and help you stay sharp and focused.

Follow 6 simple tips to ensure a peaceful slumber!

  1. Plan a sleep schedule and follow it- Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends and holidays. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle and helps promote better sleep at night. If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, get up and do something relaxing. Go back to bed when you're tired. Don’t agonize over falling asleep this might make the situation more difficult.
  2. Take a warm bath before bed- Sometimes a warm shower can relax your body. Studies suggest that bath relaxes your muscles and ensure a good sleep at night.
  3. Be vigilant about what you eat or drink- A full stomach may interrupt your sleep and the heavier the meal, the longer it takes for your stomach to settle. Eat dinner at least three hours before bedtime. Also, avoid going to bed on an empty stomach. Limit how much you drink before going to bed. It prevents disruptive middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on sleeping pattern.
  4. Create a good sleep environment- Make your room a heaven. Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark clean and quiet. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs and eye masks which are easily available at Health Vistas like Silky World Designer Eye Mask, Aktive Life Soft Foam Ear Plugs etc. Your mattress and pillow can contribute to better sleep, too like Viaggi Memory Foam Sleeping Pillow with Cool Gel. Choose what feels most comfortable to you.
  5. Exercise regularly- If you have a sedentary job, a lack of physical exertion may contribute to reducing the quality of your sleep. Regular physical activity can promote better sleep, helping you to fall asleep faster and to enjoy deeper sleep. To add more exercise to your day, take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk instead of catching the bus and so on.
  6. Manage stress- To help restore peace of mind, consider healthy ways to manage stress. Give yourself permission to take a break when you need one. Share a good laugh with an old friend.
If you stick with the above mentioned tips, your chances of achieving restful sleep will improve.

Mobility Walkers - Safety tips

The saying goes “prevention is better than cure” and is fits right for people having limited mobility. People of any age can suffer from temporary or permanent limited mobility- a teenager recovering from sports injury, an elderly person with arthritis or joint pain.
Mobility walkers support half of your weight and can be helpful for people with balancing problems. But if they are not used properly, then it can result in a hardship. You wouldn’t want to get tangled up in a walker and hurt yourself. Follow simple safety tips to use a walker:

  1. Choose the correct walker- A walker provides support to people with poor balance to walk independently. There are two wheeled and four wheeled walkers which provide support and balance to those who are recovering from any injury or illness. A variety of walkers like Scure WL 104 Folding Walker with Seat, Rehaid Premium Walking Frame, Smart Care SC 966L (S) Height Adjustable Pediatric Walker etc. help in mild or moderate balancing problems. Thus, while selecting a correct walker make sure that the walker has rubber grips for your hand and non-skid wheels which prevent you from sliding. 
  2. How to use a walker? After selecting the right walker for you, the next safety step should be its usage. To stand up- put the walker in front of you and slide forward in the chair. Grasp the arms of the chair and raise yourself. Balance yourself on the walker until you’re ready to walk. Always make sure that while moving forward with the walker it should be firmly set on the ground. To sit down- Stand with the back of your legs against the chair. Grab the seat arms and slowly slide back into the chair. 
  3. Modify your home and kitchen- Modifying your house by simply rearranging some furniture or putting in a few handrails can be very simple. Make sure that the path from one room to another or to the kitchen should be clear of all hurdles. Installing ramp for walkers or wheelchairs and grab bars for stairs can also be of great help. Keep the kitchen floor dry. Put paper towels or floor wipes for cleanups. 
  4. Travel in groups- If you have friends or relatives who also use walkers, try to convince them to join you on walks. That way you can look out for each other in case of any emergency.

Factors to consider before buying a wheelchair

Are all the wheelchairs same? Most of the individuals will answer it in Yes!

But “No” they are not same. Just like there are differences in every vehicle the same way every wheelchair is different. Wheelchairs have huge difference and meet different needs of different people. The last two decades have tremendously seen a huge progress in development of the wheelchairs. Now we can see wide variety of wheelchairs is available in market. But the important question is choosing the correct wheelchair. Moreover getting a right wheelchair is important for overall quality of life. If you have a family member, friend, relative or neighbor who is physically challenged then help them in choosing the best wheelchair that will cater well to their needs.

There are many factors that need to be considered before buying a wheelchair like

  1. Will I use my chair for indoors or outdoors?
  2. Where will be the wheelchair used mostly?
  3. Is the wheelchair easily transportable?
  4. How long I will be sitting on the wheelchair?

There are multiple questions and doubts run in our mind while choosing. And for the first time user making a choice will be more difficult. So I want to share some tips and points that should be taken into consideration before you purchase.

Some of the other important factors which are:

Overall Weight of chair:
The overall weight of the wheelchair should be taken into consideration while selecting the wheelchair. The lighter the chair the more convenient it will be to lift and transport it in car. There are some chairs in which the parts can be removed easily such as foot rests and armrests which make the chair lighter in weight.

Assessing the Correct Size:

  • User Weight: The weight of the occupant must be taken into consideration while selecting wheelchair. Every wheelchair has a weight limit and the standard wheelchair has a normal weight limit of 114 Kg. If the user weight more than it then a heavy duty chair must be selected.
  • Seat Size: There are various seating sizes available in wheelchairs and it is important to choose the correct size. As the correct size will give enough room to comfortable sitting positions and will avoid the pressure. A narrow seat will increase the chances of skin shearing while a wide seat will rotate the occupant’s legs inward and give strain on hips. So in order to avoid these problems it is required to measure the occupant’s widest part of the hips.
  • Backrest Height: A correct backrest height usually allows freedom of movement and maintains good posture. The correct seat height can be determined by taking the measurement of the wheelchair user. The standard chairs come with the fixed height but there are many chairs available in the market that comes with adjustable height.
  • Armrest Height: The armrest of the wheelchair should be such that it supports the arms of the user comfortably. If the armrest will be too high then it will raise the shoulders of user and a low armrest will end up in leaning one side or the other. There are usually 4 types of armrest Adjustable, Removable, Flip Back and Fixed or Permanent.

These are some of the basic points I have shared with you in this article. It will help you in selecting a right chair. And once you are sure about which wheelchair to buy then look for the warranty and the deals available. At you can choose among the wide variety of wheelchair available at best prices. So now don’t restrict yourself to your house and live a healthy, active, independent and self reliant life.

Power wheelchairs- Add more power in your life

“Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.” - Stevie Wonder

Just because you lack the ability to walk doesn’t mean you can’t desire for an independent and active life. You can still fee yourself and enjoy life!

Have you come across a situation which requires you to move without help and you are unable to do so? Are you one of those who think being in a wheelchair would make it difficult to perform daily activities? If “yes,” then Health Vistas has exactly what you need.

What is a power wheelchair? 
A power wheelchair is designed to move through the means of an electric motor and navigational controls. They are useful for those who are unable to propel a manual wheelchair or who may need to use a wheelchair for distances or over terrain which would be fatiguing in a manual wheelchair. They may also be used not just by people with 'traditional' mobility impairments, but also by people with cardiovascular and fatigue based conditions.

Wondering about how does a power wheelchair work?
Power wheelchairs work by using a small joystick mounted on the armrest to help operate the wheelchair. People who cannot manage a manual joystick have other options like head switches, chin-operated joysticks, sip-and-puff to move freely.
