DIY Health Hazard?!

Published May 17, 2023, 8:20 p.m. by Monica Louis

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.

1. Juicing

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.

2. Coconut Oil

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.

3. detoxes

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.

4. Essential Oils

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.

5. diy Sunscreen

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
