Life lies in exercise, and scientific and appropriate exercise plays a vital role in health care and daily life. Insufficient exercise can easily lead to disease, and shorten life expectancy. The latest article on the US “Internet MD” website introduces the “14 signs that the body should hurry up to exercise”, which is worth reading.
Regular constipation Regular exercise can help increase bowel movements and make bowel movements easier. Consistent exercise can promote digestion and make bowel movements more regular and normal. Exercise is more important the older you get when it comes to preventing constipation.
Stiff joints Stiff joints can sometimes be caused by things like arthritis or an autoimmune disease. Moderate exercise helps to “open” the joints, maintaining their normal function so that physical activity is not too painful.
Breathless biceps without exercise will weaken the strength. In the same way, lack of exercise can also cause the lung muscles to lose strength, making them out of breath with a little activity.
Moody and infrequent exercise can not only damage physical health, but also increase negative emotions such as anxiety and depression. Aerobic exercise such as walking, cycling, swimming or running improves blood circulation, improves and stabilizes mood, and even boosts self-confidence.
Tired all the time If you feel unresponsive and tired most of the time, it’s likely that you’re not exercising enough. Exercise helps body tissues get enough oxygen and nutrients. Sitting still for a long time can easily lead to fatigue.
Metabolism is slowed. Lack of exercise can “plug” the body and slow down the metabolism. Exercise can speed up metabolism and promote blood circulation.
Difficulty falling asleep Maintaining regular exercise during the day can help reduce stress and anxiety, thereby improving sleep quality, resulting in faster sleep, a greater proportion of deep sleep, and fewer nighttime awakenings.
Regular forgetfulness and regular exercise can cause the body to produce more growth factors (a synthetic chemical). Growth factors promote the formation and repair of blood vessels in the brain. The more blood that enters the brain, the stronger the ability to think, remember, and judge.
Increased blood pressure Several studies have confirmed that sitting for long periods of time increases the risk of diseases such as heart disease. Being sedentary can lead to high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for diseases such as coronary heart disease.
Blood sugar instability Incorporate regular exercise into your daily life, making it easier to control blood sugar. Keeping blood sugar levels stable can keep you away from type 2 diabetes.
Back Pain Like all muscles, the core muscles can be used and lost. Without exercise, it is easy to feel sore and stiff back muscles even when standing or reaching. Stretching exercises such as Pilates and yoga can help strengthen your back muscles.
Always Hungry Many people think that the more you exercise, the more hungry you feel and always want to eat. Often, however, the opposite is true. Aerobic exercise such as biking, swimming, and running improves the levels of “ghrelin” in the body, which in turn reduces appetite.
Old Love Sickness Research shows that moderate exercise can reduce the risk of illnesses such as colds and flu. Exercise boosting immunity is the crux of the matter.
Dull complexion and lack of exercise for a long time will slow down the circulation and metabolism of the body and skin, resulting in excessive accumulation of waste and waste gas in the body, poor blood circulation, and natural yellowing and dull skin. Several studies have shown that moderate exercise can improve blood circulation and strengthen the immune system, which in turn helps the skin maintain its youthful vitality.
In the traditional concept of many women, menstruation seems to be closely related to detoxification. Is that really so? Can menstruation really take away the “dirty things” in the body?
Menstruation is a physiological phenomenon unique to women’s reproductive period, and it has obvious periodicity. The ovary undergoes cyclical changes of follicle development, ovulation, corpus luteum formation and atrophy every month. Under the action of ovarian secretion of sex hormones, the endometrium sheds and bleeds periodically, that is, menstruation. These include blood from ruptured blood vessels after the lining of the uterus has shed, fragments of the lining of the uterus, cervical mucus, and sloughed vaginal epithelial cells. Then, since it is a ruptured blood vessel, menstrual blood also comes from the human blood circulatory system, just like the normal blood flowing throughout the body, so there is no such thing as a “toxin”.
Some people may ask, why do pimples appear on the face before menstruation and disappear after menstruation? And why do breasts get sore before menstruation and get better after menstruation? Why do I lose weight after my period? In fact, these are not because of the so-called “detoxification” effect of menstruation, but because of cyclical changes in hormones in the body.
Normal menstruation is cyclical. The first day of bleeding is the start of the menstrual cycle, and the interval between the first day of two menstrual cycles is one menstrual cycle. The menstrual cycle is generally 21 to 35 days, with an average of 28 days.
Menstrual period is the duration of each menstrual period, usually 3 to 7 days. Menstrual volume is the total amount of bleeding in one menstrual period, and most women’s menstrual volume is 20 to 60 ml throughout the menstrual period.
Any abnormality in the menstrual cycle, menstrual period or menstrual flow is considered abnormal menstruation. In layman’s terms, menstruation “no longer”, “chaotic”, “more” and “less” are abnormal conditions.
How to judge abnormal menstrual flow? Menstrual flow is more than 80 ml during the entire menstrual period, and menorrhagia is considered, while less than 5 ml is oligomenorrhea. Under normal circumstances, use no more than two packs of sanitary napkins (10 pieces per pack) per cycle, and exceeding this amount is regarded as menorrhagia.
At the same time, the following criteria can be used to self-assess the presence of menorrhagia.
1. Is it necessary to change sanitary pads or tampons at night.
2. On days of heavy menstrual flow, whether to change sanitary napkins or tampons every 2 hours.
3. Whether a large blood clot is found in the menstrual blood.
4. Do you feel weak, fatigued, dizzy or breathless during your period?
5. Whether you need to adjust your social activities or change your attire according to your period.
If the answer to one or more of these questions is “yes”, it may indicate heavy menstrual bleeding, and it is recommended to communicate with the gynecologist in a timely manner.
Remind everyone that abnormal menstruation is often just a symptom, and the initial manifestation of some diseases is abnormal menstruation. Don’t ignore it, don’t worry, and seek medical attention in time if you have any problems.
