Say Hi to Sleep Hygiene

 

Something that we all love dearly, but most of us cannot get enough of. Sleep is one of our body’s delicate processes that is important for physical and mental health. Sleep hygiene refers to behavioral practices that will lead to a good night’s rest. Following these behaviors can decrease the need for prescriptions and boost your daily energy.

“It takes me forever”

“I never get enough”

“I can’t seem to get comfortable

These are common phrases that are uttered when someone is asked about their sleeping patterns. Although people are quick to realize the symptoms of lack of sleep including lack of concentration, heightened emotions, and malaise, what most fail to do is change their bad sleep habits. Bad sleep hygiene includes taking too many naps during the day, eating or drinking excessively too close to bedtime, and bringing stress to the bed. If you are someone who has difficulty falling asleep incorporating the following habits:

Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a disease that affects how your body uses blood glucose. Diabetics have too much glucose in their blood, which can lead to health issues. There are a few different types of diabetes including diabetes Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Symptoms of diabetes include increased thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger, unexplained weight loss, presence of ketones in the urine, fatigue, irritability, blurred vision, slow-healing sores, and frequent infections.

Health Misconceptions

 

 

1. A Gluten free diet is good for you



There is no indication that eating a gluten free diet is better for your health. There is no research that supports cutting back on gluten will reduce health risks, other than those with celiac disease. Some processed foods labeled as gluten free (bread, waffles, cereals, etc) often have more fat, sugar, calories, and sodium than gluten containing foods, actually making them unhealthier food choices. More than 1/3 of Americans think that going gluten free will help them lose weight. The opposite is true. Researchers say that a gluten-free diet seems to increase the risk of overweight and obesity. While cutting back on gluten containing foods such as bagels, breads, pastas, and other carbohydrates can help some people lose weight, if you are replacing those foods with gluten-free versions, it's more likely you will gain weight since the gluten-free alternatives are higher in calories and sugar. If you suspect you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, you should consult with your doctor.
