The 6 Worst Health Myths BUSTED
Maybe it comes from the Internet… or the news… or from your nosy neighbor.
But it seems like we’re bombarded with health advice 24 hours a day.
And do you know what I call most of this health advice?
Garbage. Absolute, total garbage.
In fact, there are six health myths that could be making you sick RIGHT NOW.
And learning the truth could help you avoid some of the deadliest diseases around.
Myth #1: You Can Exercise Off Your Weight
For most people, you cannot exercise your way to weight loss. Changing what you eat and taking supplements is your best bet for good weight loss. Building muscle increases your metabolism, so weight lifting can also help.
Myth #2: You Need Powerful Medicine to Stop Pain
The opioid epidemic tells you how bad this myth can be. I’m not suggesting you never use pain medications. But learn how to get off them quickly if you must use them.
More importantly, you can make pain go away when you address the root cause of the problem. Joint pain (for example) can be erased by collagen supplementation and natural anti-inflammatories like curcumin. Back pain also responds well to stretching and natural anti-inflammatories.
Myth #3: Mental Diseases Are a Personal Weakness
I hate this myth, because it stops some people from getting the help they need. They try to “tough it out.”
We are learning that there are physical root causes for mental diseases. Inflammation is a common denominator for many brain disorders like depression and anxiety. Food allergies also increase mental diseases (such as bipolar and schizophrenia). Addressing these issues is good for your mental wellbeing and your overall physical health.
Myth #4: Fat Is Bad
For a long time, we’ve feared fats. And look what it has gotten us: more heart disease than ever.
The truth is that there are bad fats and good fats. Bad fats are any liquid fat that is not olive or avocado oil (such as corn, soy, or sunflower oils) and any trans fats (these fats are found in heated and processed foods). Good fats are the essential fatty acids (omega-3, EPA/DHA).
Myth #5: Stay Out of The Sun
We need the sun like we need air and water. Our bodies need vitamin D (which is created in our bodies when sun touches our skin) and most of us don’t get enough. The important thing about sun is to get some every day, but not to overdo it.
Myth #6: Fruit Juice Is Good for You
Fruit companies are out promoting their products everywhere lately. And while fruit juice appears to be healthy, it contains fructose (a simple sugar) which is much worse than other sugars. Fructose is much easier to turn into fat and easily leads to conditions like diabetes.
