                                             3 Cara Bebaskan Mulut dari Sariawan

Umumnya, sariawan timbul sebagai sinyal bahwa tubuh kita tengah kekurangan gizi.  Namun,  ternyata pemicunya bukan hanya itu. Ada beberapa faktor lain yang tak berkaitan dengan asupan gizi, akan tetapi dapat memunculkan masalah di mulut. Beberapa anjuran dari praktisi-praktisi  kesehatan dapat kita praktikkan untuk membebaskan mulut dari sariawan.

Dari Dokter Gigi

Drg. Linus Boekitwetan, M. Kes (ort) menjelaskan bahwa sariawan yang disebut juga stomatitis aphtousa rekuren (SAR), yakni  lesi (luka) mukosa rongga mulut yang paling sering terjadi. Penyebab utamanya tak diketahui, tetapi ada faktor lain yang memicunya , misalnya iritasi gigi tajam, gangguan imunoligi, hormon, dan sebagainya.

Drg. Linus menganjurkan untuk berkumur dengan obat kumur  yang mengandung chlorhexidine gluconate atau topical kortikosteroid, untuk mempersingkat waktu penyembuhan luka. Obat jenis topical anestesi (salep) bisa diberikan untuk meredakan rasa sakit.

 

Dari Ahli Herbal

Ahli obat tradisional China, Mochtar Wijayakusuma, mengatakan bahwa  sariawan dapat timbul di lidah, langit-langit mulut, gusi, pipi bagian  dalam, atau bibir. Penyebabnya bisa karena kekurangan zat besi, vitamin B12, infeksi virus dan bakteri. Dapat juga terjadi akibat lidah tergigit, atau mulut sensitif terhadap pasta gigi atau obat kumur.

Untuk mengatasinya dengan obat-obatan Herbal, dianjurkan untuk mencoba ramuan Herbal dengan bahan tomat, kiwi, jeruk lemon, dan madu. Caranya dicampur 1 buah tomat dan kiwi (kupas kulitnya) ke dalam blender. Tambahkan dengan  air perasan ½ jeruk lemon dan madu secukupnya. Blender, lalu minum 3 kali sehari.

 

Dari Ahli Gizi

Sementara Yusnalaini Y. Mukawi, Msc.., ahli gizi dari Poliklinik Gizi RSPAD Gatot Soebroto, menyatakan bahwa kemungkinan sariawan terjadi kurang nutrisi. Tak ada makanan yang menyebabkan sariawan. Umumnya, masalah ini akan timbul apabila kita kekurangan nutrisi, terutama vitamin C dan untuk menghindari sariawan, dianjurkan untuk memenuhi kebutuhan vitamin C tak kurang dari 60 mg perhari. Selain itu lengkapi menu makanan sehari-hari dengan sayur dan buah-buahan.

Hati-hati Mengkonsumsi Mie Instan..!

Hati-hati, bumbu mie instant tidak boleh dimasak! Peringatan bagi kita semua bahwa mie instant tidak boleh dimasak bersamaan dengan bumbunya, karena MSG (mono sodium glutamate). Bila dimasak diatas 120 derajat Celsius akan berpotensi menjadi karsinogen, pencentus kanker. Perhatikan semua kemasan mie instant, kebanyakan prosedurnya masak mie dulu baru ditaburi bumbu.  Bumbu di taruh dimangkuk dulu. Jadi jangan pernah masak mie beserta bumbunya! Hal ini berbahya!

Hasil penelitian mengkonsumsi mie instant 4 hari berturut-turut berpotensi kanker, mioma, kista atau amandel sebesar 75 persen. Jika Anda tidak percaya, cobalah ambil kuah/bumbu mie instant lalu taburkan ke atas pot  yang berisi bunga dan tumbuhan, beberapa hari kemudian tumbuhan tersebut akan layu atau mati. Masih banyak zat kimia yang tidak sengaja masuk ke dalam tubuh lewat makanan seperti nasi non organic, bakso, tahu, dan tempe, kedelai non organic, ayam potong dll.

Sayangilah keluarga Anda, jauhkan dari penyakit..!

Manfaat Minyak Ikan Untuk Kesehatan

by Maria Dewi – The Acropolis Spa & Fitness

Kaitan antara konsumsi ikan dengan tingkat kecerdasan dan juga kesehatan sudah lama dikenal. Ternyata bahan rahasia dalam ikan yang banyak berperan dalam pencegahan penyakit adalah minyak ikan.

Minyak ikan, ditemukan dalam ikan yang mengandung lemak atau pun suplemen. Lemak pada ikan berbentuk cair, karena disebut dengan minyak ikan.

Penelitian menunjukkan banyak manfaat minyak ikan bagi kesehatan, tetapi bukti ilmiah menunjukkan minyak ikan bermanfaat paling besar bagi kesehatan jantung.

Penelitian juga menyebutkan minyak ikan bermanfaat  menurunkan kadar lemak darah trigliserida, memperlambat pembentukan plak pengerasan pembuluh darah, menurunkan tekanan darah, serta mencegah stroke pada penderita penyakit jantung.

Karena manfaat terbesar minyak ikan berasal dari kandungan antiinflamasi, omega-3, para ahli percaya minyak ikan juga efektif mencegah penyakit akibat inflamasi seperti arthritis rematoid, osteoporosis, dan sebagainya.

Manfaat lain minyak ikan yang sudah diketahui adalah menjaga kesehatan mata, menurunkan resiko penolakan setelah pencangkokan jantung dan ginjal, mengurangi gejala depresi, gangguan konsentrasi, penyakit jiwa berat Schizophrenia, atau gangguan bipolar.

Tubuh kita tidak dapat membuat omega-3, karena untuk mendapatkan jumlah yang dibutuhkan kita harus mengasup makanan yang mengandung omega-3 atau suplemen. Selain pada ikan berlemak, omega-3 juga banyak ditemukan pada kacang walnut, minyak canola, zaitun, flaxseed, serta kacang kedelai.

Dibandingkan sumber nabati, omega-3 yang berasal dari hewan tetap yang terbaik. Ini karena minyak ikan memiliki dua jenis asam esencial, yakni eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) dan docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Sementara sumber nabati hanya mengandung asam lemak alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Riset-riset menunjukkan manfaat EPA dan DHA jauh lebih besar daripada ALA.

Meski sumber alami,  yakni mengonsumsi ikan langsung dianggap lebh baik daripada suplemen tetapi sebaiknya Anda mewaspadai kemungkinan ikan tercemar mercuri atau logam berat.

Untuk menyiasatinya, pilihlah ikan berukuran kecil, misalnya sardin yang mengandung toksin lebih sedikit karena mereka berada di bawah rantai makanan. Makin besar ukuran ikan, makin besar pula kemungkinan ia terkontaminasi.

Bila ingin membeli minyak ikan, pilihlah yang berkualitas tinggi dan produknya punya reputasi baik.
