How effective is the consumption of Apple cider vinegar, given its side effects?

Often people are furious about losing weight and as human nature suggests we keep looking for the easiest and quickest methods. Today I’ll be sharing how Mrs. Kamal has benefited from the effective measures she took suggested by me and my dietician team’s guidance.

Mrs. Kamal isn’t having any such health issues but has gained weight in the last few years. She has tried ample ways to reduce weight but nothing seemed effective enough to help her reduce the excess fat.

Now before we proceed to the effective ways one can rely on to reduce weight, it is important to know the usual reasons behind weight gain:

  • Consuming excessive processed foods
  • Too much sugar intake
  • Having a sedentary lifestyle
  • Skipping meals or poor meal timings
  • Might have undiagnosed medical issue
  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Unusual restrictive dieting
  • Insufficient intake of whole foods
  • Being stressed out

Well, there’s no magic potion for weight loss. The only proven method is by reducing calories or increasing physical activity. I’ll be sharing the information I gave her. There is no other better alternative than Yoga when it comes to weight loss. Proper and regular yoga can indeed bring improving results along with diet.

Limit your intake. Begin with a small amount and gradually increase depending on your personal tolerance. It cannot perfectly be said, how much apple cider vinegar you can safely intake daily. Taking large doses of apple cider vinegar every day may be harmful and may cause your potassium levels to become dangerously low, plus it differs from individual to individual. That said, small doses are usually well-tolerated.

If you consume it, be aware that it might harm your teeth or digestive system if it’s too strong. It might also interfere with some medications in ways that could affect your health.

Dr. Pratim Sengupta thinks of himself as conscious, living, soulful being with an inner urge to break the inertia of life. He feels that life is nothing but a material expression of the Supreme Almighty Consciousness. His conscious existence empowered him to see, to hear, to talk, to interact, to feel, to dream, to ask questions, and to seek solutions to every problem. In the flow of life, as he grew up, he understood that knowledge of life is the only way to understand the scientific basis of conscious existence. Hence Dr. Sengupta felt the urge to study the science of life – i.e. Medicine. After he completed his higher secondary education from the Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira in Belurmath, he joined the MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) course at RG Kar Medical College, Kolkata. The professional packaging of knowledge in terms of a time-bound, goal-oriented syllabus frustrated him a bit, but nevertheless ignited the urge within him to study further. He thus went on to his post-graduation (MD) in Medicine from IPGMER and SSKM Hospital, Kolkata. During his MD training, he got a glimpse of the vastness of knowledge, and the quest to learn precisely the facts of life narrowed down his area of interest to the functioning of the kidneys and the specialisation of Nephrology – a discipline that is complex, yet relatively new and still evolving in terms of complete understanding of renal physiology and pathology. So, Dr. Sengupta decided to study and train for the DM (Doctorate of Medicine) degree in Nephrology. Right from the start of his career, Dr. Sengupta was passionate about Research. During the MD programme he worked on Cirrhotic Cardiomyopathy, Autonomic Neuropathy of Lupus, and Insulin resistance in Diabetics. All these research studies were published in national journals. During his postdoctoral study in Nephrology, he worked on Hemodialysis efficiency, and suggested an angular placement of the Dialyser in order to increase efficiency. This innovative concept was accepted for presentation at the World Congress of Nephrology, Milan, in 2009, and also published in Hemodialysis International. Dr. Sengupta also worked on Plasmapheresis – a blood filtering technique by which toxic and pathogenic immunoglobulins can be removed from the body. He studied the role of Prethymectomy Plasmapheresis in Myasthenia Gravis patients, and his findings were published in the journal Interactive Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. The patient-empowered nutritional model for nutritional care of kidney patients is another interesting and innovative area in which Dr. Sengupta has worked for quite a long time. Dr.Pratim Sengupta won the Bharat Jyoti award for his excellency in the field of medicine. He is also the president of our non-governmental organization, The Kidney Care Society. His tireless contribution to provide quality living for his patients is worth mentioning. He introduced Mukti, blending ancient Indian yoga with modern medicine for well being of every patient. He has also introduced an unique online course "Art of Living with diabetes" which is a complete solution to diabetes management. He has authored many books, blogs, for the patients. Searching and researching for solutions to problems in the field of Nephrology remains the passion and dream of Dr. Pratim Sengupta, and he intends to persist on this journey as long as he is conscious. Meanwhile, even as he pursues his dreams, Dr. Sengupta diligently puts into practice all he has learned about Nephrology over the years, at the Belle Vue Clinic in Kolkata and ILS hospital,Dumdum where he is available for his patient
