One Simple Reason Why Most People are Sickly Today

senhospitals.in
I sometimes find myself in hospitals nowadays, not because I'm sickly but because some people are. I have to visit them being good friends of mine.

And what I note is this--there's often one simple reason why most people are sickly today--they don't eat enough fresh fruits.

And really, it costs cheap to get rid of diseases most of the time.

Well, it's different when most of your life you've been eating little to no fruit, and then you get sickly and you suddenly decide to eat lots of fruits from now on. It simply wouldn't work like when you start eating fruits way before you get sickly.

Although you can always try starting now even if you're already sickly.

Problem is, people see fresh fruits as mere dessert. They don't see it as a meal or part of a main meal. Moreover, you don't eat fruits like desserts you eat after eating main meals. You should eat fruits before eating anything. Lots of people do not know this simple health practice--or know it but just laugh about it.

But it's these basic health truths that matter and often decide the fate of your overall health.

I have the habit of eating fresh fruits early in the morning--latundan bananas, oranges (dalandan is always so cheap), kalamansi, guavas, papaya mangoes, avocados, melons, or whatever is available at our local fruit store. For instance, guavas are good--and they cost me only P10 for 5 big-enough and ripe-enough pieces. I so love guavas since I was a kid. It's rich in Vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals.

So many people are sickly today, especially when they get old, because all their lives they lacked fresh fruits. They eat apples and grapes only during Christmas, eat one small banana a day (if any), and eat other fruits only when they're in season.

Worse, instead of eating fresh fruits, they spend money daily on vices.

That makes their immune health suffer lack and deficiency.

When they get old, diseases easily attack their bodies. And then they realize it and start eating fruits, which is often too late.

If people had eaten lots of fresh fruits in their younger years, more people would be out of the hospitals today. That's cheap health and fitness with middle income budget for you.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
