Hello User,

As 14 years is a teenage and important milestone in a person's life with your bones growing and so is your overall development happening, it is time to take complete measure and adapt a natural lifestyle through it in order to have a very idealistic and better lifestyle with qualitative benefits.

A holistic measure is the only way you can treat this thing completely.

Eat:

The first thing in the morning is to start your day with something light in nature and easy to digest is what your breakfast should be because they are the kind of nutrients that get absorbed easily. Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water will help in flushing out all the toxins.

  • Consume a calcium-rich diet as our bones are growing and height will be influenced, apricots, cashews, green leafy vegetables are good sources of calcium.
  • A diet rich in minerals like almonds, seeds, flax seeds and chia seeds which are helpful in neural development helps in treating neuropathy and increase brain power.
  • Consuming natural fruits daily with vegetables will help as stomach relief. It is time to take out junk food from the diet and include green which will make sure to give you a healthy lifestyle.

The ideal diet would be to depend on fruits and raw vegetable intake and refrain from something which is oil-based. Have fruit salad in the afternoon time and vegetable salad as evening snack this will be light on your stomach.

​​Exercise:

  • Pranayam helps in detoxifying the body, practicing it early morning in an area which has good sunlight will help in improving blood circulation.
  • Suryanamaskar daily 12 sets will help in increasing the blood circulation of your body.
  • A brisk walk in early morning sun from 30-45 minutes, helps in treating your body to its level best. Sun is a great source of Vitamin D that is why walking in the Sun and connecting with the sun also help in activating our cells and rejuvenate us for the whole day.

Meditation:

In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it, but with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything. The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleep with the help of music to stay positive. Use a 15-minute relaxation technique before sleep, by hearing a piece of soothing music and deep breathing will help in relaxing your mind.

A positive attitude will help you to deal with everything in life.

Sleep:

Sleeping for at least 7-8 hours is really helpful in dealing with any problem, sleep is our body's natural response and helps the body to heal. Sleep relaxes the muscles and strengthens our body. During sleep, our body goes into a repair mechanism where it heals thy self.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you

Thank you

Hello,
It is growing age. In this age, the overall development of mind and body occurs. Hence, the child needs a proper nutritional diet with all the minerals, vitamins and essential nutrients. Along with the diet, a proper lifestyle is equally important. 

Diet:

  • The diet should be completely plant-based.
  • Give him overnight soaked raisins early in the morning on an empty stomach as it has various important nutrients. 
  • Give him coconut milk as it will fulfil the protein requirements which is very important for the formation and repair of cells and tissues. 
  • Make sure that he has atleast 8-10 glasses of water throughout the day to be hydrated. 
  • Give him fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. 
  • Give him whole grains like barley, millets, oats.
  • Give him nuts, sprouts, salads, beans.

Foods to avoid -

  • Avoid animal foods and dairy products because they are not meant for humans and hence causes difficulty for the digestive system. 
  • Avoid deeply fried foods, spicy foods, processed foods and packaged foods. 
  • Say no to tea, coffee and other such drinks. 

Physical activity 

During growth years, physical activities are equally important as diet.

  • Make him indulge in some outdoor sports like football, badminton, basketball etc.
  • Make a habit of performing yoga or doing exercises in the morning. 
  • Tada asana, vriksha asana, trikona asana, hala asana are very good for the growing age children. 
  • Try to start his day with a short morning walk of atleast 15min.
  • Also, morning sun rays are very important for vitamin D.

Sleep 

Sleep is also very essential for the growth of children as the body repairs all the cells and tissues while we sleep. He should have atleast 8-10 hours of sleep daily. 

He should sleep early at night and also should wake up early in the morning. 

Don't use any electronic devices atleast 1hour before sleeping for a good quality sleep. 

Thank  you

Depends on these days. I am working with a 19 yr old who is suffering to lose weight. So it depends on what is this boy's existing lifestyle. If it is loaded with animal foods like dairy, eggs, meat, fish, processed foods like fried items, chocolates, Mc D, fast foods, biscuits, not enough water, etc, then kids as young as 10 start preparing their body for the onset of diabetes in their 20's and 30's.

Adolescent kids face a lot of issues with problems during their puberty if their childhood has scope to accumulate toxins as stated above. Their body is growing inside physically, mentally, cognitively, spiritually, sexually, and emotionally to become adults. All of these are connected to the cleanliness of the body. Hence, ensuring that we guide the boy to lead a holistic and natural lifestyle is the responsibility of every parent. Unhealthy lifestyles of children give more challenges for the parents to deal with their transition to adulthood.

My children are teens too and they are healthy today because of the time and energy invested in their food habits majorly.

1) Give him at least one big glass of fresh juice daily and ask him to increase the content of liquids including water. During this time the body needs a lot of hydration as the apocrine sweat glands start to produce a lot of sweat.

2) Switch his breakfast to only fruits.

3) Ensure that his cooked meals have no oils. Add coconut, sesame, peanuts instead of oils.

4) Instead of excessive grains, add beans, lentils, pulses, and legumes to his diet.

5) Bring in a lot of raw salads.

6) Seeds and nuts in moderation.

7) If he is leading a sedentary lifestyle then all the forms of fats will only overload his body. Ensure he is engaged in 1 hr of outdoor activities. His growing muscular structure needs to be moved.

8) Avoid any fried foods or sweets made from animal products. Choose steaming and oil-free baking instead / use dates and jaggery for sweets made with coconut milk.

9) Avoid refined oils, refined sugar. Avoid any form of oil entering his body from any food.

Growing boys, in general, need a lot of activity, raw food to feed the growing muscles to make their protein. Don't rely on protein from animal products.

Be blessed
