When it comes to our health, we often think that we know what’s best. After all, we are the ones living in our bodies, so we should be the experts on our own health, right? Wrong. It turns out that many of the things we do in the name of health are actually quite harmful. Here are five health DIYs that are doing more harm than good.
Juicing has become a popular health trend in recent years, but it’s actually not all it’s cracked up to be. While juicing does provide a convenient way to consume fruits and vegetables, it also removes the fiber from these foods. Fiber is an important nutrient that helps keep us regular and aids in digestion. Without fiber, the sugar from the fruits and vegetables can quickly spike our blood sugar levels, leading to energy crashes and cravings.
Coconut oil has been hailed as a “miracle” food, but the truth is that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Coconut oil is high in saturated fat, which can raise your cholesterol levels and increase your risk for heart disease. If you’re going to use coconut oil, use it sparingly.
Detoxes and cleanses are also popular health trends, but they’re not necessary and can actually be harmful. Our bodies are designed to detoxify themselves, so there’s no need to do a juice cleanse or take supplements that claim to “detox” our bodies. These cleanses can actually lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and other health problems.
Essential oils are another popular health trend, but they can actually be quite dangerous. Essential oils are highly concentrated and can be toxic if ingested or if they come into contact with your skin. If you’re going to use essential oils, be sure to use them safely and only use them as directed.
diy sunscreen is a popular trend, but it’s not a good idea. diy sunscreens often don’t provide adequate protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. They can also be irritating to the skin and cause allergic reactions. If you’re going to use sunscreen, be sure to use a product that has been tested and is approved by the FDA.
These are just a few of the many health DIYs that can be harmful to your health. When it comes to your health, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and consult with a healthcare professional before trying any new trends or products.

a new trend which has found its way into
the delivery room Drew's already smiling
because we were looking at pictures
earlier so what her mom is doing well a
few of them are skipping the hospital's
umbilical cord clamp in favor of their
own homemade versions like we're seeing
here I mean we're literally talking
about not using medical grade clamps and
creating almost looks like quilts around
the baby's cord now you they are really
cute they keep them on of course until
the cord dries up this can take some
time you have to be fastidious about
cleaning that area making sure it
doesn't become infected and if you have
one of those devices which we know that
there are fluids are all around it seems
to me it would be incredibly difficult
to keep it clean that's that would be my
one concern my question is if you're the
mom you just gave birth to this
beautiful baby is the doctor going to
leave it is this a choice that you have
wouldn't a doctor advise you say you
know we just wait awhile let the baby
get a little older and make sure there
are no issues with infection well I mean
the doctor most likely is going to
advise against it but you know they say
well this is what I want to do if this
if this birth occurs in a hospital I
have a hard time imagining the doctor
tying the knot on this little homemade
I mean it's great likely happening would
be that you know the the parent may take
where the clamp is and tie this on right
next to it but even if you put it on
next to the clamp you still have the
issues of infection and the abscess
turns red worse I mean does baby care
what's attached to us it's all about the
pictures that's exactly the point that I
wanted to make is all about the picture
that's being posted on social media but
rather see be done is just formalize
this and make them medical grade use
materials that we know aren't getting
creatures for infection because they are
they're really cute these are like
Chiefy these are people for Vox to 70
bucks on Etsy and babies usually wear
them for about a week until till that
area heals and it's just it's
interesting if nothing else but just be
careful you're gonna do this
we'll be on that
