LIFESTYLE THURSDAY :TOP 7 DANGEROUS DONTS AFTER MEALS


Hello EB readers. Today is our lifestyle day. I would be discussing and sharing DONTS AFTER MEAL. Most of us are 100% guilty of all below, please do try and adjust your lifestyle.
Actually I was guilty of most Donts and I’ve decided to share it with you.

1. Don’t smoke : Why would you want to smoke just when you finished your meal ? You should know that your chances of cancer is. higher because some experts have proven that smoking a cigarette after meal I s comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes. Be wise.

2. Don’t eat fruits immediately: Fruits are essential for our body but not Immediately after meals. It will cause the stomach to be bloated with air. So please take fruits 1 -2 hours after meal or 1 hour before meal.

3. Don’t drink or sip tea: Tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the protein content in the food we consume to be hundred thus difficult to digest.

4. Don’t loosen your belt: Loosening the belt after meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted and blocked.

5. Don’t Shower or have your bath: Bathing immediately after meal causes the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs and body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease, this will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

6. Don’t walk about: People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

7. Don’t sleep immediately: The food we intake will not be to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric and infection in our intestine.
I was struggling to breathe air for well over 30 seconds After eating when I went to bed. I couldn’t swallow, I couldn’t breathe nothing. How my air passage cleared is still a mystery.

Please! Wait for at least 30 minutes – 1 hour after a meal before you sleep.

So I hope you all will take to this advice to prolong our health and enable our digestive system to function properly.

PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN IN HOSPITAL IN LONDON + IBB SPOTTED IN LONDON CLINIC AS LEG WORSENS


According to Saharareporters, An intestinal problem has forced President Jonathan to cancel a planned surprise visit to the Super Eagles in South Africa, medical sources in London said today.
The Nigeria president, who is on a whirlwind three-nation trip to Egypt, the United Kingdom and France, had planned to surprise the Super Eagles in South Africa following their qualification for the final of the African Cup of Nations last Wednesday.
He came down with an intestinal disorder referred to as Amoebic Colitis and he underwent testing at the London Clinic on Harley Street.  The clinic is highly favoured by Nigeria’s rich and powerful. A medical source told Saharareporters that Mr. Jonathan’s situation is not worrisome but that the persistent nature of the condition meant the president had to undergo some screenings.  It was not clear why he did not undertake the screenings in Abuja, where State House has an excellent clinic manned by a largely idle staff.

Meanwhile, former Nigerian dictator Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida was also sighted at the InterContinental Hotel in London limping on one leg. Mr. Babangida was helped into a vehicle by two aides on his way to a hospital in the city.It was not clear if President Jonathan previously knew of Babangida’s stay at the same hotel but the two met briefly as Babangida struggled to get to his car.
Mr. Jonathan is expected to arrive in France on Monday, according to his itinerary, but it is unclear if his health issue will force a change.  Mr. Jonathan’s wife, Patience, last month returned to hospital in Germany following new health concerns. 

The president has detailed the Senate President, David Mark, to cheer on the Super Eagles to victory in their final match against Burkina Faso tomorrow.

An intestinal problem has forced President Jonathan to cancel a planned surprise visit to the Super Eagles in South Africa, medical sources in London said today.

It was not clear why he did not undertake the screenings in Abuja, where State House has an excellent clinic manned by a largely idle staff.

A presidency source said the President plans a massive reception for the Super Eagles in Abuja on Tuesday night.

Following decades of irresponsible management of the Nigerian economy, including failure to develop the health sector, Nigeria’s leaders and their families routinely hurry off to the developed world to squander valuable foreign exchange even on minor health procedures.

Two years ago, Babangida’s wife died in a hospital in California. Prior to that, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s wife died in a hospital in Spain.
