Walk more, drink plenty of water... You think you are keeping fit, but the doctor tells you: Actually...
The following things that people often do, you think are for health preservation, in fact, they are healing illnesses.
"Eat more grains and avoid miscellaneous diseases!" So, "whole grains powder" quietly became popular.
Many people think that multigrain flour is convenient and has many benefits! But it actually hurts the body.
The most important thing about whole grains is that they are rich in dietary fiber, which can promote gastrointestinal motility. After being ground into powder, the dietary fiber is destroyed, leaving only starch and sugars.
Eating whole grains powder will increase blood sugar faster, which is bad for the body. Eating too much will increase the incidence of various diseases, especially diabetes.
Some elderly people eat porridge all year round because of their poor chewing function; there are also a few people who pay attention to medicated diets to take medicated porridge to maintain their health.
According to observations, the elderly who eat porridge for a long time are generally thinner, because the elderly have poor gastric motility.
If you eat porridge for a long time, the total calories and nutrients your body gets are not enough for your body to consume, resulting in nutritional imbalance.
Therefore, although regular eating porridge and taking medicine porridge is a method of health preservation, it is not suitable for everyone, unless the body is very weak or needs medical treatment.
Many people take vitamins as a panacea and take a few tablets a day, which is good for their health.
In fact, if the body is not deficient in vitamins, no matter what kind of disease you are suffering from, taking vitamins is a waste and even aggravates the condition.
For example, patients with gastric ulcer taking a lot of vitamin C, not only ineffective, but also aggravate the irritation to the stomach.
Usually, some people regard vitamin C effervescent tablets as medicines to improve immunity, but only those with vitamin deficiency need supplements.
Once a long-term overdose of vitamin C, it can also cause urinary tract stones and accelerate arteriosclerosis.
The concept of calcium supplementation is deeply rooted in our country. Many elderly people feel that the more calcium supplements and the more they absorb, the stronger their bones will be, so they eat a lot of calcium tablets.
Calcium is not the more supplement the better-
The National Nutrition Association recommends that elderly people weighing 50 to 70 kilograms require approximately 1000 mg of calcium per day. In addition to obtaining them in the diet, the extra calcium supplement is 300 to 700 mg.
Excessive calcium supplementation can affect the body's absorption of iron and zinc, and can easily cause complications such as hypercalcemia and kidney stones.
In fact, a healthy and balanced diet can provide enough calcium. Good sources of calcium include milk, dairy products, soy products, and green leafy vegetables.
In recent years, "bigu health preservation" has become more and more sought after. Instead of eating grains, meat, eggs, etc., they only rely on drinking water and dextrose instead of three meals, saying that they can "clean up the stomach."
Do you think this "bigu" method is really good for health?
Bigu can disrupt the normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, the permeability of the intestines, the secretion of digestive juices, and the absorption of nutrients. It can easily cause metabolic disorders in the body and cause diseases such as gastritis and gastric ulcers.
People often say "Drink plenty of water, you have to drink 8 glasses of water a day to be healthy"...
In fact, people's daily demand for water is about 2000~3000ml, which is the metaphor of "8 glasses of water".
But in our three meals, meals and soups also contain "water", so under a normal diet, it is enough to add 1000 ml of water a day, and each drink should be less than 300 ml.
Excessive drinking will increase the burden on the kidneys, and poisoning will damage the kidneys.
Excessive drinking can also lead to low sodium content in the blood and cause "hyponatremia", causing lethargy, nausea, convulsions and even coma.
Our people have the habit of "drinking while hot" and "eating while hot". The desire of the mouth is satisfied, and the burden on the digestive system is too heavy.
The human esophagus is very soft and can only withstand temperatures of 50℃~60℃. Above this temperature, the mucous membrane of the esophagus will be burned.
If you often eat hot food, the mucosal damage has not been repaired and burns, which can form superficial ulcers. Repeated burns and repairs will cause changes in mucosal quality and further develop into tumors.
In daily life, do not eat hot food, and keep the temperature below 60℃ as much as possible.
Orthopedic experts pointed out: Although walking exercise is good for health, it is necessary to master appropriate methods for exercise. Blindly walking in large quantities can easily damage your legs!
Ten thousand steps is relatively simple for people who are accustomed to exercise. Even if it is increased to twenty thousand steps, it is just normal exercise.
If a person who usually lacks exercise suddenly takes XNUMX to XNUMX steps a day, not only will the body be overwhelmed, but it may also cause damage to joints, ligaments, and bones, which will backfire. Therefore, the exercise is best to proceed gradually.
