Gone are the days of pulling all-nighters( and bragging about it) and in are the days of get a solid 8-hours sleep. It’s 2019, and we’re preoccupied with the idea of feeing clean, clearing our minds and exercising our way to good health. It’s a positive change but anything can be taken to the extreme, and we are all aware celebs take their health tendencies to the extreme. Here, 4 celebrity-endorsed health trends “youre supposed to” shouldn’t try.
Even if you aren’t one to keep up with health tendencies, someone in your life has probably tried to sell you on the magical of celery juice. However, does the bitter green liquid genuinely help with psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome, acne, and basically every other medical issue? Kim Kardashian, Hannah Bronfman and Jenna Dewan may try to convince you, but according to nutritionists there’s currently no science that backs up these claims. Don’t get us incorrect: the crunchy fibre- and vitamin-rich veggie is great for you. The problem lies within juicing. Feeding produce through a juicer strips it of its fibre, which is what leaves you feeling full and satisfied.( Fibre also contributes to good gut health .) What you are, however, leave behind is a ton of sugar. So it’s probably best to pass up on drinking celery juice, and instead toss it into a healthy meal.
Full revealing: I had no idea a colonic was anything other than a medical treatment … until I went down the rabbit pit of celebs who receive enemas in spa-like luxury. You read that right. A long list of -Alisters opt for frequent( sometimes several times a week) flushes of their bowels by means of a tube, copious quantities of water and their colon. Gwyneth Paltrow went as far as to suggest Goop readers try it themselves at home with a coffee enema. Not only is getting a colonic expensive, but it’s extremely dangerous. Improperly-cleaned equipment may result in contracting infections like Hepatitis B and C. There’s also the risk of perforating your bowel or colon during the procedure. And even if you do come out unscathed, the process interferes with the natural bacteria that lines your intestine( which is meant to be there !) so please, consider doing your business the natural way.
Activated charcoal is everywhere these days. It’s used in face masks, teeth whitening products and even in beverages( both virgin and alcoholic ). But should you be trying this trend out? When it comes to external body parts, have at it! But ingesting activated charcoal is a whole other story. It isn’t inherently bad for you. In fact, it’s used in hospitals on patients who have ingested poison or have overdosed on drug. In these cases the activated charcoal binds onto toxins, preventing them from being absorbed into the bloodstream. The charcoal is then passed naturally. If, however, there are no serious toxins in your body, the charcoal may bind to certain medications you may be taking, preventing them from being fully assimilated. And, in the case that you’re toxin- AND medication- free, activated charcoal is said to slow down your bowels which can result in constipation.
Vitamin IV Drips
Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen and Kendall Jenner have all undergone vitamin IV drips, however, the latter attained news last year when she was hospitalized after a” bad reaction” to the procedure. Vitamin IV drips have been around for decades. The tendency, in which vitamins are administered intravenously, was popularise by Dr. John Myers in the 1960 s, and is said to help boost the immune system and replenish lost electrolytes and vitamins. In an interview with Vogue, New York-based anesthesiologist, Dr. Jonathann Kuo explains that medical history should always be taken into account before the undergoing procedure.” There are some vitamins and substances that react with each other ,” he says, adding that most infusions are actually not necessary.
