Wellnessta Takes Spa and Salon Experience to the Next Level

In the last ten years, the internet has become extremely ubiquitous, impacting our lives at an exceptional rate. They have changed how individuals socialize, look for data, tune in to music, request food, and shop, and all this has made our lives more convenient. Nowadays, there is an app for everything. You have Zomato to order food; you have MakeMyTrip to book flights & hotels; Bookmyshow to book cinema, etc. But still, there is no aggregator in personal grooming, fitness, or wellness space globally. With Wellnessta, we want to fill this void. 

 

Wellnessta is a first of its kind platform. It’s not just a marketplace but also a SaaS software that helps business owners/managers run their business more efficiently. 

    • For consumers, it’s a marketplace just like Amazon / Makemytrip to book servicesregarding to wellness like

Spas and Salons Near Me

    . For services providers, Wellnessta will enable online bookings and provide software to manage their business efficiently.

 

For the consumer, the biggest attraction is convenience. People no longer wish to call and book appointments; they would instead open an app and book a slot at the place and time of their choice. Apart from convenience, consumers will get a wide range of offers on Saloon and Spa booking on Wellnessta, plus they will earn reward points as they spend that can be redeemed on the platform on future bookings. 

 

Coming to Vendors, because of covid & lockdown, the revenues have fallen drastically, and everyone is under tremendous pressure to find new ways of getting business. We believe the need for Online Bookings has never been this dire at the vendor level. Everyone is trying hard to get more & more consumers. In such a scenario, finding online consumers is made easy by Wellnessta. All these things have favoured us, and we have got an overwhelming response. People have become very conscious about safety & hygiene, and in such a scenario, Wellnessta verified outlets would provide quality assurance, which consumers are looking for. On an overall level, we believe the environment is very conducive for us to launch Wellnessta.

Rice Bran oil (RBO)Rice Bran oil is extracted from Bran, a brown layer that the rice kernel is coated with. The same brown layer which makes Brown Rice a healthier option compared to the polished rice where this layer is removed. Freedom Physically Refined Rice Bran oil is available in the markets with all these qualities and hence makes the best cooking choice.

Gives better taste and flavour to food items

According to renowned chefs Rice Bran oil is perfect for all high temperature cooking techniques like pan frying or deep frying. It is also suitable for preparing all dishes in the Indian kitchen.

Due to its stability and pleasant flavour, high smoking point, Rice Bran Oil forms an ideal medium for cooking, particularly for the Indian households. 

Health Benefits of Rice Bran Oil:

Physically Refined Rice Bran Oil is generally golden yellow in colour. It is refined through a steam distillation process which preserves all the essential nutrients. Freedom Rice Bran Oil has 10000+ ppm Oryzanol which helps in reducing your body’s Bad Cholesterol (LDL) and improving Good Cholesterol (HDL) to make you and your loved ones feel good and stay Heart Healthy. It is considered as heart-friendly oil and the credit goes to its capacity to lower cholesterol because of the right amount of oryzanol found in it, which is an antioxidant.

The World Health Organization and the American Heart Association have both stated that rice bran oil has the best possible composition of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated fats compared to all other vegetable oils.  Balanced fatty acids help our body to maintain a healthy LDL/HDL ratio by reducing bonding of “bad” forms of cholesterol (LDL), a requirement for better functioning of Heart. This can help reduce conditions like atherosclerosis and the subsequent afflictions like heart attacks and strokes.

According to Dr. J Shiv Kumar, Senior Consultant Cardiologist, Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, “Heart attack is an epidemic in our country with over 3 Crore people suffering from a heart disease and more than 3 Lakh new cases of Heart Attack reported every year. The main reason for this is the Deposition of Fat in the coronary artery. The main culprits are the diet and habits of the people. The diet, mostly the oil consumed should have low saturated fats and high PUFA & MUFA content as it helps in staying heart healthy. Rice Bran Oil fits the bill and therefore must be used for good heart health.”

So, according to experts, if people maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat right, drink at least 2 litres of water, avoid bad habits like smoking, regularly monitor and control diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and Cholesterol levels and choose a healthy oil like Rice Bran Oil, they are likely to stay healthy and safe.

Consumers today are smart and hence recognize the health benefits of Rice Bran Oil. There’s also a perception that foods cooked in Rice Bran Oil tend to absorb less, making it an ideal medium for Sautéing, Tempering aside from deep frying. We have witnessed an increased demand for Rice Bran Oil over the past few months because of the health benefits and steep price hike of other oil variants. However, all branded rice bran oils may not contain the same quantity of Oryzanol. Freedom Rice Bran Oil is physically refined & has 10000+ PPM Oryzanol and hence an ideal cooking medium for the daily cooking purpose and therefore we request the consumers to adopt it, and stay healthy. “

Immunizing and staying hydrated can help in protecting our health this season states Narayana Health City

The heavy downpour coupled with the drop in temperature that the city had witnessed will have a ripple effect on the health of the people states Narayana Health City. According to the doctors at Narayana Health City, the cold weather that the city has been seeing is conducive to viral replications and there has been a progressive increase in the number and severity of asthma attacks. Similarly, due to water logging the cases of dengue is also on a rise.

 

Elaborating about the impact of the weather on the health of the people in Bengaluru, Dr. Mahesh Kumar, Consultant, Internal Medicine, Narayana Health City, Bengaluru, said, “There is a 15% to 20% rise in number of patients being admitted with asthma attacks in the last 2 weeks compared to same time last year. There is a surge in the number of dengue and Chikungunya incidents. But what is worrying is the severity of the infections. The severity of infections is higher especially in the case of dengue the infection is relatively higher this time in those who have had a history of COVID infection. Due to reduced cell mediated immunity in patients recovered from COVID, the infection tends to cause more severe symptoms, prolonged illness and sometimes dangerous drop in platelet counts to as low as 20,000 and below calling for utmost care and strict following of preventive measures.”

While cough, breathing difficulty and low grade fever are the early symptoms of asthma attack. High fever, severe headache and joint pains which doesn’t recede with oral paracetamol and home remedies are the symptoms for dengue and Chikungunya.

Regular hand wash, social distancing and follow up with the doctor and following their advice can help in bringing down the possibility of an asthma attack. Further, as Influenza and pneumococcal vaccinations given at the beginning of monsoon have shown to significantly reduce asthma exacerbations it would be advisable for people who have a history of asthma to consider immunisation.

Wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and closed-toe shoes instead of sandals, using mosquito repellents whenever possible, keeping windows and doors closed during evening hours as the mosquitoes that carry the dengue viruses are most active from dawn to dusk and keeping oneself hydrated by drinking plenty of water and fresh fruit juices as well as eating fresh fruits are recommended. Keeping yourself fit and active by practicing exercises and yoga is also a good practice that can help keep infections at bay. Apart from personal well-being keeping the buckets and drums that are used for storing water always closed, cleaning out all empty flower pots, as it becomes the breeding places for mosquitoes are other aspects that can help in preventing a possible outbreak of mosquito borne diseases. In case anyone has a pet they should ensure the water bowls are clean and kept empty during this season as the held up water irrespective of big or small quantity can enable breeding of mosquitoes that carry in infections.
