Health and Fitness Myths Debunked
Myth 1: Soreness Equals Results
Soreness is not really a good indicator of progress, as a matter
of fact too much soreness can hold back progress. You should
focus on true signs of progress such as doing more reps, lifting
more, seeing change in the mirror, with a scale, tape measure,
Myth 2: You Can Reduce A Specific Area By Exercising That Area
There is no such thing as "spot reducing", you can't choose an
area in which the reduction will occur. For example, doing
crunches will strengthen your abdominal muscles but will not
take fat off of your stomach. Only eating correctly along with
cardio exercise will reduce and it will reduce over the whole
body not just one area.
Myth 3: Milk Does A Body Good
Besides man, no other species drinks milk beyond infancy or
drinks the milk of another species. Milk is high in sodium,
fat and cholesterol. Milk products are a very likely cause
for obesity and many health problems such as allergies,
digestive problems, bloating, gas, cramps, vomiting,
headaches, rashes, asthma, irregular heartbeats, high
cholesterol, headaches, fatigue, etc. If you want to
lose fat, feel better and be healthy cut out all milk
Myth 4: Grains Are Healthy
The percentage of overweight and obesity in the US soared
from only 14% to a whopping 66% since the new grain-based
food pyramid was introduced. Over consumption of grains
has also been linked to many health issues such as: insulin
resistance, hypoglycemia, diabetes, allergies, headaches,
fatigue, gas, bloating, chronic aches, inflammatory bowel
disease, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, bladder disease,
degenerative bone diseases, auto-immune diseases, etc.
If you want to look better, feel better and have more
energy? Try removing all wheat and grain foods and replacing
them with fresh, raw, organic vegetables and fruits.
Along with free-range, grass fed organic meats and wild
Myth 5: Medicines Can Make You Healthy
These days every time you turn on the TV you see ads for
medicines to treat everything including pain, high cholesterol,
fear, sadness, etc. In these ads they are very clear that
these medicines only treat symptoms and also have some serious
side effects. There is a real reason for everything, so if you
have a headache and take a painkiller, you have only masked a
symptom - the headache is still there but you are just numb so
you don't feel it. So what happens? You don't find the real
cause and you have to take painkillers all the time and you
make big pharma very happy, while the side effects cause you
more problems. But if you found the real cause such as the
headache was being caused by food allergies and you stopped
eating that food, then you are pain free and have no reason
to take any medicine. The same is true of your emotions, we
are told that depression may be caused by a chemical imbalance,
however, there is absolutely no evidence to support it.
Recent reviews of the research have demonstrated no link between
depression, or any other mental disorder, and an imbalance of
chemicals in the brain. Recently American psychiatric Association
President Steven Sharfstein admitted that there is no way to test
for a "chemical imbalance" as the cause for mental disorders.
Also recent studies have shown the ineffectiveness of
antidepressants when compared to placebos. The U.S. FDA has
been forced to warn that psychiatric medications can and do cause
worsening depression, mania, aggression, psychosis,
depersonalization, diabetes, hallucinations, suicidal and
homicidal thoughts, heart attack, stroke and sudden death.
Note: It can be dangerous to suddenly stop taking some medicines,
if you wish to stop find a doctor that will help wean you off.
The bottom line is - long-term use of medicines will worsen
your health, but proper nutrition, exercise and finding the
real reasons for things and not just covering up symptoms
will keep you healthy and happy.
