The 5 myth and fact about the menstruation


The 5 myth and fact about the menstruation

The 5 myth and fact about the menstruation

Recently, there are several articles on "taboo" during menstruation. Unfortunately, in the article, most of the facts given are not based on scientific arguments but rather to the unobtrusive testimonials such as the technique of fake product sellers that deceive the public with unfounded sweet words. Until the people have to be constantly in line with these myths?


"Do not drink ice, water, and coconut water, and all cold drinks cannot be drunk because they can cause blood to become frozen and stuck in the uterine wall after 5-10 years will cause uterine cancer. Even coconut water cannot be drink when it comes to menstruation as coconut water is a cold component and will make your uterus cold. "


There is no scientific study proving that drinking ice water during menstruation may increase the risk of developing cervical cancer.

However, drinks containing caffeine and high sugar and salt in foods and drinks can cause premenstrual syndrome (PMS) problems such as dysmenorrhea can be worsening during menstruation.

Coconut water has diuretic properties as it is high in potassium content as a banana. High potassium content can help remove sodium from the body. In addition, coconut water is excellent to help balance the electrolytes in the body and maintain hydration.

Therefore, it is encouraged for every woman to eat vegetables and fresh fruit during menstruation. Also, consuming coconut water which is rich in nutrients and minerals that the body needs is very helpful during menstruation. Hence, the statement that coconut water causes cold uterus and can not be taken when the menstruation is not true.

*However, I do not drink cold or icy water when I am on my period. Cause I felt like it made my period flow real slow. But that's just me. Cause if my sister drink cold water, her period just flows normally.


"Do not wash your hair because the scalp pores are open when it comes to menstruation and can cause a headache. The headache can be felt by young and old if you want to wash your hair, use hot water, and immediately dry using a hairdryer. You are also encouraged hot/cold shower when it comes to menstruation "


Hygiene should be maintained even more during menstruation. Imagine if you do not wash your hair during your menstruation, do you feel comfortable?

Do you know, the cause of headache is not as stated by the above myths. It has nothing to do with open scalp pores.

Headache is one of the symptoms of PMS that has nothing to do with the pores. It is caused by unbalanced hormonal problems when women are menstruating.

The 5 myth and fact about the menstruation


"Do not eat cucumber when you're on period because the sap on the cucumber will cause the menstrual blood to remain in the uterus wall"


Do you eat cucumbers or eat the sap? How can a cucumber sap cause blood attach to the uterine wall? A rather strange and baseless statement altogether.

Do you know that the cucumber contains a high percentage of water? Like other vegetables and fresh fruit, it contains a variety of nutrients and substances that are indispensable to the body, especially for menstruating women with dehydration problems.


"When you're on menstruation, you cannot fell down, hit by a hard object especially the abdomen as it can cause blood vomiting and the womb can be injured"


Anyone can get injured when you fell down and get hit by hard objects. No matter what menstruation is. To say that it causes vomiting of blood and the womb of the womb is completely baseless.

Vomiting blood or the medical name known as hematemesis is caused by problems such as peptic ulcer, severe gastritis, and gastroenteritis.

In this case, the esophagus wall, as well as the abdominal wall, is eroded due to high and persistent (chronic) acidic conditions resulting in abdominal pain and bleeding. This will cause blood vomiting to happen to anyone regardless of menstruation or not.

Uterine injuries are not solely due to drowsiness, fall, and pain during menstruation. Uterine injury can occur at any time if traumatized by a fall or injury. Additionally, diseases such as endometriosis and urinary infections can also cause pain in the womb. Sincerity or dysmenorrhea is common in menopause.


"Do not eat painkillers such as panadol during menstruation, you should have a drink of warm water, a person who practices warm water will be less painful during menstruation and if you eat painkiller during menstruation it will cause miscarriage in the future."


The use of painkillers is safe for women who suffer from dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea or dysmenorrhea can be very severe until there are patients who have to be injected with pain relief such as Tramadol and also Diclofenac Sodium to reduce pain.

For the knowledge of all readers, panadol medicines are category C drugs that are safe for pregnant women. Therefore, panadol medicines do not cause women taking it during menstruation will cause a miscarriage in the future. Drinking warm water should be encouraged, though, warm water baths can also provide comfort in menstruation.

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing

Who doesn't want a beautiful body? To get the ideal body shape, surely various types of efforts have been made. 

Healthy food, drinking enough water, exercising just to get the ideal body shape. Pretty sure that it is not uncommon for desperate people to carry out extreme ways to achieve that goal.

Although we're losing weight fast, usually the 'fast' method will not last long. Here are some of the extreme diet things that people do to get the body that they want.

Extreme Vinegar Diet

10. Vinegar Diet

Lord Byron popularized this diet in the 1820s. Basically, the menu consists of mineral water, vinegar, and raw eggs. Water and vinegar can indeed reduce body weight drastically, but if you do it every day it will endanger the body.

The results of this diet provide dramatic results. Weight will drop dramatically but often does not last long and harmful.

Extreme Baby Food Diet

9. Baby food Diet

Baby food diets use this type of food as a substitute for food. The idea is to supply every meal or snack we make a day with jar compote from fruit or vegetables or meat purees and not ordinary food. The plan recommends consuming 14 bottles of this type and, if desired, light dinner to reduce the anxiety of consuming "chew" foods.

The problem is, besides taste and monotony, the food is designed for the first months of our lives and not for adults, that we have different nutritional needs that will not be included in this diet. In addition, the parts are very small, which can cause overeating. In conclusion, anyone who has this idea is not too bright.

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing Diet liquor drink

8. Diet Liquor Drink

This method is a new term for eating disorders followed by consuming alcoholic beverages. People who experience this intentionally reduce food calorie intake in order to drink alcohol. 

With this method, it will certainly be able to reduce weight quickly. But by consuming lots of alcohol, the immune system will deteriorate and may cause alcohol poisoning.

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing breatharianism diet

7. Breatharianism Diet

In America, this diet was popularized by yoga practitioners, Wiley Brooks. Starting from the belief that sunlight and spiritual power are sources of life, adherents of the breatharianism diet avoid eating and drinking.

There is no scientific evidence that humans can survive only with sunlight. Therefore, nutritionists do not recommend this kind of diet because it can trigger hunger.

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing freegan diet

6. Freegan Diet aka Free Diet

Adapted from the Vegan diet or just eating foods from plants, adherents of this diet only eat food that does not require a fee (free) to get it. Leftovers from other people and wild plants are the main source of nutrition in this diet.

Doctors say there is no negative side to this kind of diet as long as you keep paying attention to cleanliness.

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing fletcherism diet

5. Fletcherism Diet

In the early 1900s, Horace Fletcher introduced a fairly extreme diet method. Any food consumed must be chewed 100 times, then cider mixed with saliva is swallowed while the pulp is removed.

Even though it is very extreme, there is a scientific basis that can explain Fletcherism. According to nutrition experts, slowly chewing food can prevent overeating.

4. HCG Diet (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)

The hormone that comes from the placenta is believed to be able to burn fat. Someone who injects this hormone can only consume 500 calories/day and is claimed to be able to reduce his weight to 0.5 kg/day.

But doctors warn that hormone injections are very dangerous if done without clear indications. In addition, an intake of 500 calories/day is considered too low.

3. The Tongue Patch Diet

This diet method was created by a surgeon from Beverly Hills. In this diet method, the surgeon will attach ingredients such as plastic to the tongue so that eating will be very painful.

Using this method, people will be forced to only eat food in liquid form as much as 800 calories per day. Not only torturing your tongue but also torturing your bank account, you have to spend at least 2,000 US dollars.

2. Tapeworm Diet

You read that right, this diet uses tapeworms. The trick is to swallow tapeworm pill, then let the tapeworm eggs grow in the stomach.

A person who consumes tapeworms can indeed eat whatever they want because the tapeworm also feeds on the nutrients that enter the body. Tapeworms are dangerous and they can clog the digestive tract, impair organ function, damage the nervous system and more!

1. Cotton Ball Diet

To do this extreme diet, you only eat cotton ball dipped in juice. Those who eat it do not feel full without calories which makes the body not increasing weight.

In fact, eating cotton can clog the intestines and lead to stomach problems. 

Top 10 Extreme diet that people should stop doing

Some people will say that those people who are doing extreme diet are an idiot or whatever. I am not defending them for doing this. I would say that some people tend to do some extreme thing when other people push them or stress them. Do you know what I mean?

People would say "you're ugly and fat", "you're so fat", "you look like a pig", and make some other harsh words. 

Do you realize that your word hurt them? Those types of words can stay in their mind for 10 years or forever! If you can't say anything nice about others, then kindly please just zip your mouth. Just keep it to yourself. 

There's a lot of better way to say something rather than all those harsh words.

  • How you can get rid of your under-eye bags 

1. Use a spoon

You can get rid of your eye bag just using a spoon. Take a spoon and put it in the fridge for five minutes. When the spoon is cold, sweep them under your eyes to get rid of under eye bag.

2. Cucumber or potato slices

Use the cucumber or potato slices and put it on the eye. Leave the cucumber or potatoes

I did follow this tips, cause I have the 'panda eye' as you can see a picture of me below. If you see me face-to-face surely you can see my dark baggy under eyes color. 

I follow both tips but sadly both didn't work for me. So I will share the tips that work for me: 

  • Not drinking water, alcohol, soup 30 minutes before sleep to avoid baggy eyes
  • I also use a small pillow for my neck and a bigger pillow for my head just to keep my head high at least 4 inches upwards so that the head position is higher (but what's important is that you're comfortable ok?) 
  • Do not over-sleep, that's how to get baggy eyes.
I still have the dark under eyes, cause not having enough sleep at night. The good thing is no more baggy eye lol

  • Face Scrub (Exfoliation)

Get a soft baby skin with face scrub routine twice a week. But if you have a sensitive skin only do once a week. It might cause skin irritation and inflammation which can lead to accelerated aging. It may seem harsh to use a face scrub to some people. 

*Stop using it if you feel like your face is burning or any others irritation occurs.

  • Teeth whitening tips

  • Get rid of acne tips

Who thought toothpaste would not only act to clean teeth but also to fight acne? Dab toothpaste on acne before bed and let it overnight. Take a white toothpaste only. This solution is especially effective if you are allergic to face cream. 

However, this is just my view's about these tips. 

My sister follows these tips, dab toothpaste on acne and lets it rest overnight. She said that the toothpaste area feels cool and shrank the acne. (so am I)

But for my friend, she felt like a burning occurs on the dab toothpaste area and it left a dark spot. 

So different people have different view's. If you have sensitive skin, do not use toothpaste for acne. It is better to directly meet the dermatology for skin problem.

  • Bit root lipstick tips

Who knows you can use something on the fridge to use as a lipstick? The purple and red color can be the best natural lipstick. Dab a little dye on the lips and it will look radiant.

Haven't tried this yet. Let me know the result if you already try!

  • Sleeping beauty tips

Sleeping beauty is the term to invite women to look beautiful and get enough rest. Logically, if you're not having enough sleep, surely you will have the long face and a slight of grumpy attitude. Not just that, even your smile looks bland if you're not having enough sleep. Plus, the dark circles under the eyes are also hard to cover with concealer. 

  • Home beauty tips

Natural beauty starts at home. This may sound weird to some of you, but learning how to cook is one of the beauty tips at home. From there you can know the nutrients contained in the cooking ingredients and can be used as a cure for skin problem.

Of course, this is true, but you can also google the nutrient contained. 

However, I think everyone should know how to cook. You don't have to learn how to cook 5-star dishes. As long as you can feed yourself for survival and stuff then you're good lol

What about you? Did you guys follow any of these tips?

6 Weird health tips that work

There are many ways to improve your health such as weight loss, eating less, exercising, drinking plenty of water, and sleeping. 

But guys, that's just mainstream. It's too normal. We are not normal... I guess? or is it just me? 

Let's look at ways to be healthy but weird and effective...

Disclaimer: Some of these tips might work to some people and honestly I never follow any of these tricks... yet.  Just sharing a little information that I knew and heard from others.

  • Exercise when you are tired

After a long tiring day, do an exercise. I mean. Yep, exercise. Sounds like a good idea? 

This study shows that only 30 minutes of moderate exercise intensity reduces fatigue, improves mood and prevents sad thoughts. In fact, it is a physical activity that can restore lost energy.

However, do not push yourself. Everyone has their own limit, and you should know your limit. If you can exercise for a minute, then you can. If you're really tired, that you really can't do any physical activity, then do not do it. I am serious about this, I know someone who died cause of too much physical activity.

  • Drink cold water or ice water

Eating ice actually burns calories because our body requires energy to warm the water up, therefore it helps you to lose weight. 

So, do not worry if you can't afford all those fancy weights loss supplements, diet program or others. Now go freeze some water on that ice cube, cause that's what I'm doing after this.

  • Do not brush your teeth after eating

It is better for you not to brush teeth as soon as you eat or drink, especially foods or drinks that contain acid. For example, citrus fruits, tomatoes or carbonated drinks cause it will damage your teeth. Wait for 30 minutes to 1 hour before brushing the teeth.

This is true, eating acidic fruit will weaken tooth enamel and brushing too soon may cause erosion of the enamel. Always brush your teeth after 1 hour ok? 

  • Build muscle to get thinner

One kilogram of muscle has the same weight as one kilogram of fat. But the muscle is denser and don't take up a lot of space. 

  • Eat more calories to lose weight

Carbohydrates will only increase your blood sugar levels and make you feel more hungry. Best choices it to add protein and fat such as nuts, fish, and chicken, it will make you satisfy your hunger and eat less.

  • Inserting a clove of garlic in the vagina

Lately, information has been circulating that inserting garlic into the vagina is claimed to cure vaginal discharge. 

However, Gynecologist, Dr.Jen Gunter, said this was a bad idea. Garlic contains a compound called allicin, which experts believe can eliminate fungi. When inserted into the vagina, garlic has the potential to carry bacteria that is bad for our body.

The last one is a bit too much for me. People will believe everything that they see on the internet. Inserting something like that is just too scary for me. There's nothing wrong to try remedies. 

But not inserting a clove of garlic... just don't. Just go to the Doctor hmm

I stop consuming my Apple Detox Thailand and try this.. 

Which is better!


Previously I told you guys about Apple Detox Thailand that I consume that helps with bowel movement.

Firstly, Apple Detox Thailand is a dietary supplement that helps bowel regulation. Just take 1 capsules in the morning after breakfast and drink 2 or 3 liter of water. Then wait for the magic to happen after 3 - 4 hours.

But if you haven't read the review yet, then you should read it. Because, why not?

At first, I really love consuming Apple Detox Thailand Capsule. On my reviews post, I told you from day 1 to day 4 experience.

I know it's just a 4-day experience, but I'm consuming it only to regulate my bowel movements. Not for weight loss or brighter and clear skin (Capsules contain Vit C). If I'm about to write about weight loss or anything I wouldn't write a review that I only consume for 4 days.

That capsule works in 3 - 4 hours for bowel regulation. Day 3 was not good for me... The worst.

I know I said it is worst, but I still consume it since it really helps with constipation.

I stop consuming Apple Detox Thailand capsules after 2 weeks and started to drink Chia Seed.

I search on the internet on how to consume it, and some would recommend it to take 1 tablespoon in a warm glass of water. But for me, I use 2 tablespoons of Chia Seed and drink it.

The Chia Seed will get sticky or jelly consistency when it sits in the water. So I always stir it, just to make sure it won't stick to each other. lol

The taste is just like jelly. As for me, it tastes good and it works better than the Capsules.

The different is, I can get a severe stomach ache for consuming Apple Detox. It is not good, but I was just desperate for it. Always felt good after overcoming the stomachache.

And for Chia Seed, I drink it in the morning and at night. Next day, it will help to regulate bowel movement in the morning! I am happy with it. Since drinking Chia Seed won't give me any stomachache like how Apple Detox does.

Other than that, Chia Seed also helps control my hunger.

By the way, I only drink it cause I love the taste, I can cook it or eat it raw, and it helps with bowel movement. I am not consuming it for weight loss or diet program.

Chia Seed never fails to impress me every morning LOL

I only know Chia Seed help with bowel movement. But after a little deep research about it, I learn a lot more about Chia Seed health benefits.

It has tons of benefit!

It also has a lot of way on how to consume Chia Seed.

As for me, I sprinkled a tablespoon of Chia Seed on my rice bowl. The rice texture is soft, adding a little of Chia Seed gave it a crunch and nutty tastes!

1. Chia Seed Omelette

I know it doesn't look good if you cook this. Just don't think about the looks, the tastes itself is better than a normal omelet. An extra crunch from Chia Seed will bring your omelet into a different level of deliciousness.

2. Banana Split Sprinkle Chia Seed

Even the word is rhyme! The sweetness and soft texture of banana and a sprinkle of Chia Seed will surely give your fruits on another level! Instead of chocolate rice sprinkled, why not use Chia Seed as a sprinkle? It tastes nutty and has an extra crunch.

3. Ice-Cream

Any flavor is good, trust me. Chia Seed will give the crunch that you want in the ice cream. Chia seed is just so good that you don't need a specific ice cream flavor to make it delicious.

4. Coconut water

Add a tablespoon of Chia Seed in your coconut water and it will taste much more delicious than before. Just a plain glass of water is good too. I did mention above that I drink Chia Seed in the morning and at night.

You can use Chia Seed as a sprinkler at anything, from savory food to dessert. Make your food healthier with a tablespoon of Chia Seed.

Chia Seed Benefits for Body Health 

1. Helps Lose Weight 

If it's true, then the Chia Seed can be one of the first choices you can consider. What makes Chia Seeds can help you lose weight is because of the rich fiber content. 

Normal Chia Seed intake of 25-38 grams a day, has been able to help you reduce excess weight. A study in Brazil, proves that Chia Seed plays a role in reducing fat, besides that the protein content is also proven to reduce craving or hunger and weight loss. 

The method is quite easy, just add two tablespoons of Chia Seed to a glass of water and mix well. Wait a few minutes, then drink immediately before expanding due to water absorption. Chia Seeds will absorb water in the stomach and then expand, which will suppress your appetite which in turn can cause weight loss. Interested in trying it?


* This is so true, I was consuming Chia Seed only for bowel regulation. I didn't know that it can suppress my appetite. And consuming Chia Seed drink helps to reduce my hunger and feels satiety.

2. Rich in Omega-3s Fatty Acids

Chia Seed is one of the few types of seeds or grains which are very good sources of omega-3s fatty acids, even contain more omega-3s than salmon. 

3. Helps Prevent Constipation 

It turns out that the benefits of Chia Seed can be used as a constipation drug too. This is because Chia Seed contains a lot of fiber, especially insoluble fiber. Chia Seeds will turn into jelly when they come into contact with water. This is what will help smooth bowel movements, so that it can ultimately reduce constipation. A study has also found evidence that fiber in the Chia Seed can also help improve digestion.

*Also true! It really helps with constipation. 2 tablespoon in the morning, and at night will surely help you

4. Regulates Blood Sugar and Helps Prevent Diabetes

The ability of the Chia Seed to slow digestion can be linked to the prevention of diabetes. Chia Seed layers that can change like gelatin when exposed to water can also prevent a surge in blood sugar levels. 

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Chia Seed is one of the foods considered useful in the treatment of diabetes, because it has the ability to improve blood pressure levels in diabetics. Another reason why Chia Seed is good for diabetics is the presence of omega-3 fatty acids which are known to be very important for the treatment of this disease. 

*For those of you who are affected / potentially diabetic, now you know that the benefits of Chia Seed are very good for you. But, consult your doctor if you want to try Chia Seed and ask for a piece of advice about your condition.

5. Combating Breast Cancer and other forms of Cancer

Did you know, it turns out that Chia Seed has the ability to fight cancer. 

A report published by UCSF Medical Center states that Chia Seed is a good source of alpha-linoleic acid and can help prevent breast cancer. In addition, Chia Seed oil is also found to have anti-cancer properties that can reduce tumor growth and inhibit cancer cell replication. Small but amazing, the benefits of this Chia Seed.

6. Helps Lower Cholesterol 

Again because of these omega-3s fatty acids that make Chia Seed so popular. These fatty acids are known to help lower blood cholesterol and prevent coronary heart disease. Monounsaturated fats (monounsaturated fats) in Chia Seeds are also proven to help lower cholesterol levels. 

The benefits of Chia Seed are also supported by several studies. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics also states that adding Chia Seeds to food can help maintain cholesterol levels. 

*And again if you're someone who has a problem with cholesterol, try consume Chia Seed. 

7. Helps Improve Cardiovascular Health 

According to a report published by West Virginia University, the content of omega-3 fatty acids from Chia Seed can improve heart health and prevent heart-related diseases. 

In addition, omega-3s are also known to reduce triglyceride production, reduce the risk of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), lower blood pressure, and slow the accumulation of arterial plaques. 

8. Increase Energy and Metabolism 

For those of you who like to exercise or often do heavy activities, try to consume Chia Seed. Chia Seed contains vitamins B, zinc, iron and magnesium, all of which can help increase energy. 

A report published by the University of New Hampshire states that Chia Seeds can also increase the body's metabolism. Seeing the benefits of this one chia seed, there's nothing wrong if we mix it into a drink to feel a refreshing burst of energy after exercising or heavy activity. 

*Pro Tip: Try adding Chia Seed in your coconut drink!

9. Can be Used as a Pre-Workout Drink After exercising or fitness, sometimes it's not tiring. 

With the large amount of omega-3 contained in it, Chia Seed can be used to maintain energy. To get the benefits of the Chia Seed, it's enough to consume drinks from the Chia Seed a few hours before exercise, so you will get additional fuel when the carbohydrates have burned out. 

In addition, Chia Seed, if consumed after exercise, is able to provide protein that can help repair tissue.

10. Source of Protein 

We don't need to discuss the importance of protein, right? Chia Seed is a great source of protein and it contains 19% protein. 

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a high-protein diet can reduce hunger and encourage satiety. Chia seed contains high-quality protein with all the amino acids the body needs, so don't hesitate to start consuming it. 

11. Natural mood booster

Chia Seed is considered as one of the 'superfood', because these grains are believed to improve mood when consumed regularly. 

In accordance with research in Pittsburgh, omega-3 fatty acids are associated with increased mood and behavior. So, it could be that consuming chia seed will help improve the mood while eliminating your anxiety. 

12. Antioxidants 

Surely we all already know how important antioxidants are. Well, this Chia Seed, is said to contain high amounts of antioxidants. Antioxidants are not only good for cells, but also for the skin, because they can help slow down the signs of aging. Very suitable for women who want to always look beautiful and attractive. 

Antioxidants in  Chia Seeds have also been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. This high antioxidant content also makes it able to last longer if stored compared to other seeds / grains. 

13. Good for bones and teeth 

One study has shown that increasing consumption of calcium-rich foods, such as  Chia Seed, can improve bone health. Regular consumption of  Chia Seed, is also considered as one of the effective ways to improve calcium intake. 

Apart from calcium,  Chia Seed, are also rich in manganese, both of which are very important for maintaining strong bones and teeth. Chia Seed, is also rich in phosphorus, a mineral that is proven to improve bone health. 

14. Can Improve Skin Health 

Omega-3 fatty acids in Chia Seed have been shown to increase circulation and reduce dryness and inflammation in the skin. 

According to studies in Manchester, omega-3 can help protect the skin from UV radiation. In addition, Chia Seed also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent that can help prevent wrinkles or sagging skin. 

*For everyone who want to looks good and stay in shape, are you still not tempted to try this big nutritious little one?

15. Gluten Free

Gluten is a protein present in cereal grains, especially wheat, and the reason why the texture of dough can become elastic is all because of gluten. In certain individuals, gluten is known to cause gluten allergy or intolerance. 

However, with Chia Seed, you who are gluten allergic can breathe freely, because Chia Seed is 100% gluten free! Chia Seed is very beneficial for individuals who suffer from celiac disease. Someone with celiac disease tends to consume less calcium and fiber than is recommended, now the Chia Seed which is rich in both nutrients can bridge the gap. 

So by consuming Chia Seed, those of you who suffer from celiac disease can fulfill calcium and fiber needs at the same time without having to worry about the gluten content in it.

Side Effects of Chia Seed

I always said that nothing is good if you're consuming it in a large or overdose. 

If you think everything that has a good, will be forever good or safe, the answer is certainly no. Likewise with Chia Seed. Behind so many benefits and goodness, this one plant still has side effects, such as the following: 

1. May Increase the Risk of Prostate Cancer 

As we have seen before, the Chia Seed contains high amounts of alpha-linolenic acid. Some studies show that the very high amount of alpha-linolenic acid can increase the risk of prostate cancer. 

2. Other Side Effects from Chia Seed 

Chia seed does contain high fiber and is good for health. But sometimes, excessive fiber can even bring adverse effects such as causing flatulence, diarrhea, and constipation. Chia seeds also act as natural blood thinners. 

Therefore, if you are someone who uses blood thinners (such as warfarin), avoid chia seed. Also, do not consume Chia Seed after surgery to avoid bleeding. Chia Seed can also cause blood pressure levels to drop dramatically, affect blood sugar, cause stomach cramps, and even have certain (but unclear) effects on pregnant women. 

*If used it properly, then it's safe. Chia Seed may have a risk if they are not consumed properly. Make sure to consult your doctor before consuming any kind of health food or supplement.

The content of Chia Seed which has a variety of diverse nutrients can indeed attract our hearts to consume it. So many benefits of Chia Seed that we can feel when consuming it. But still, pay attention to the side effects. Also, avoid over-consumption so that its properties can be obtained to the maximum and avoid something unwanted

What is a mental illness? 

Mental illness is a disease that interferes with the functioning of the brain that can cause a change in the process of thinking, feeling, and behavior of a person that causes disturbance to live a good day's activities. 

Only 6 that I listed here, there is more Mental Illness out there. I really wish everyone aware of their friends or family behavior changes. So you could help them before it's too late.

Also, check out the video included here, it really does help you to understand more about this topic. 

Are all mental illnesses similar?

Mental illness is not just a disease. It consists of various categories of disease. Generally, mental illness can be divided into 3 main groups:

1. Neurosis

Those who belong to this group often experience changes and disturbances in their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors without compromising their sanity.

Individuals suffering from neurosis are often aware of their health condition. Their daily functionality may be minimized. Among the examples of neurotic diseases are as follows.

2. Depression

Depression is a sense of extreme sadness and prolonged feeling. Sad is the feeling we often experience. But if the sad feelings are too heavy to be borne and prolonged over 2 weeks and disrupt the functioning of everyday life then it is not sad but a disease of depression.

3. Anxiety

Those who suffer from psychosis have undergone significant changes in their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Their adjuncts are also affected. Patients will feel confused by experiencing the occult voices communicating with them.

It is known as hallucination. They also have strange beliefs that are not shared by others and cause extreme reactions from the patients. It is called delusions. Among the examples of delusions are, there are people who want to prosecute or do something evil to them causing them to act to harm people who are believed to be harmful.

They may speak with a swollen/grunt, behaving freakishly like talking a person, laughing or getting angry with no cause.

Basically, this disorder makes one person experience character or character disabilities. These problems can affect interpersonal relationships with the people around them.

Or others, they call it a personality disorder.

What causes mental illness?

The cause is not known properly. Studies are still underway to determine the exact cause of the disease. However, there are several factors that contribute to mental illness.

1. Genetic/heredity factors

Members in families with a history of mental illness are at higher risk than those with no history of the disease

2. Chemical disruption in the brain

When a chemical in the brain known as a neurotransmitter is not functioning well the symptoms of mental illness will emerge. For example

Schizophrenia: Excessive dopamine production

Mania: The serotonin level increases dramatically

Concerns: There is disruption in the production and function of noradrenaline

3. Viral infection:

According to studies, there is a disease caused by viral infections that have been associated with mental illness

4. Bizarre life history

For example experiencing a difficult birth process, losing a small child, too much of a difficult life challenge

5. Low socio-economic situation

Poverty, no basic facilities or violence in society can increase mental illness.

Can mental illness be cured?


Progress in modern medicine has enabled the discovery of more effective medicines in treating mental illness.

Almost all medicines used to treat mental illness take time before their positive effects can be seen. Patient continuing rug intake is consistently strongly encouraged.

In addition to psychotropic drugs support approaches such as counseling, psychotherapy, cognitive  therapy, group therapy, family therapy, psychological education, therapeutic recovery therapy, and psycho-social recovery have proved as equally important

Is there any test that can detect the existence of mental illness?

Yes, those who want to know their mental health status can take a simple and simple test general health questionnaire (GHQ)

Mental health illness is real. Have you ever see a news report about suicidal? Some said that the people who suicide is stupid and they just laugh at them. You don't know what mental illness is. You don't know, your laugh may lead to someone suicide. 

If this thing happens to one of your family member or your close friend... Would you still laugh? Would you still say that they're stupid for doing such a thing?

Please don't be a selfish person. Help others, listen to others. It's never too late to be kind to others. It cost NOTHING to be kind.
