3 'Healthy' Dietary Habits that are Infact HARMING You!

3 healthy unhealthy dietary habits

With the vast amount of available information, ranging from age-old wisdom to health magazines and health sites, most people are prone to misinformation when it comes to what to eat and what to avoid.

From drinking copious amounts of water to eating a light lunch, it is the time that these commonly known health tips are debunked.

These 3 habits that may seem healthy on the surface but are actually harming you!

1) Drinking large amounts of water

It is advisable to drink a healthy dose of water each day, but you should drink water only when you feel thirsty and not otherwise. If you drink water beyond your level of thirst, it can lead to excess water intake. This excessive intake can be the cause of conditions like obesity, skin and digestive problems among other health conditions. An average person consumes 8 glasses of water each day. But you are advised to drink that much, only if you are thirsty enough. It is also recommended not to drink cold water or ice-cold drinks.

2) Eating uncooked foods

It is essential to preserve the nutrients of the ingredients you eat, but it is equally important to make them digestible. Cooking involves subjecting the ingredients to heat, which helps to remove and kill certain impurities and bacteria in them. Cooked foods are easily broken down, and hence, digested with ease. Some vegetables and foods are even more beneficial when lightly cooked. Vegetables like Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and kale should not be consumed raw.

3) Eating a light lunch

The ideology behind eating a light lunch may be to keep your weight in check and to stay healthy, but if the food you're having is not nutritious, it can still cause you to gain weight. Some food joints even offer a lunch menu of light proportions while the dinner menu may be packed with heavy amounts of food. This is wrong. It is advisable that people have larger proportions of food in their lunch while dinner should be meager as your digestion slows down as the day progresses.

I would suggest you to consult ent specialist for proper examination. Doctor may order ct scan, blood test, examination with otoscope. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics (amoxicillin or penicillin), anti inflammatory medications. Doctor can recommend you surgery. You should use hearing aid as that is the best treatment possible. For now apply warm dry compresses, start taking ginkgo biloba supplement and drink green tea thrice a day. Hope your concern has been resolved. Get well soon.

Health Tip : Vitamin D and Fish Oils.

Many studies have demonstrated that fish oils and vitamin D help improve cognitive function, but what exactly is the mechanism of action? In an article just published in FASEB Journal, serotonin is described as the possible missing link, explaining why vitamin D and fish oil may have such a significant effect on neurological disorders.

Previous research has demonstrated that vitamin D helps regulate the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin, the neurotransmitter that affects a variety of cognitive functions including mood, decision-making, social behavior, impulsive behavior, and social decision-making. Many brain-based disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression commonly have low brain serotonin.

This 2015 study explains how serotonin is a critical modulator of executive function, impulse control, sensory gating, and pro-social behavior. Researchers link serotonin production and function to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, which suggests one way that these important nutrients help the brain function and affect our behavior.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) helps increase the release of serotonin from presynaptic neurons by reducing inflammatory signaling molecules in the brain known as E2 series prostaglandins. These inflammatory prostaglandins inhibit serotonin release, and thus negatively impact serotonin in the brain. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) also plays a role in the serotonin pathway. This essential fatty acid helps make several serotonin receptors more accessible to serotonin by increasing cell membrane fluidity in postsynaptic neurons.

This article demonstrates how low levels of these nutrients interact with genetic pathways, such as that of serotonin. This serotonin pathway is essential for brain development, social cognition, and decision-making. This also explains how these gene-micronutrient interactions may influence neuropsychiatric outcomes. Vitamin D controls approximately 1,000 genes, many of which are in the brain.

Assessing and supporting optimal vitamin D and essential fatty acids can help optimize brain serotonin concentrations and function. As a result, we can possibly prevent and alleviate some of the symptoms associated with these disorders without the harmful side effects.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Please do not worry about the size and thickness of your penis. Average penis length is 4 inches and you have 5 inches. Average Thickness is 1.5 inches. I am sure your penis also is more than that. These sort of thinking pattern will be more anxiety provoking which could cause obsession and depression to you. I suggest sex education to you. Take care.
