In this week’s “Health and Happiness”, Joey and Vivienne discussed reducing gluten and whether using cotton swabs to clean the ears is healthier. This is a short review of what we learned from episode 9.If you missed it, you can watch the whole episode Here.
Want to be gluten-free? Please read this first!
Gluten is a protein in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. Recently, people have avoided using this nutrient for various reasons (weight loss, clean up their diet, worry about being sensitive to it). So, the one million dollar question is: gluten or not gluten? Although this protein is not good for rap, it is not worthy-unless you have celiac disease, people cannot break it down. If you have digestive system problems, it is worth seeing a doctor to determine the cause. You may be welcome to resume your diet with bread, pasta and other gluten-containing foods. (Note: Don’t avoid gluten products before you make an appointment, as that will bias the results of any tests that your doctor may perform.) And, if you must avoid gluten, try quinoa. My favorite quinoa recipe: Perfect Yogurt Quinoa with Sweet Potato Quinoa Pancakes.
Health or hype?
When dining out, it’s better to spend some money than dessert. Joey said: Hype! She thinks it’s best to go for dessert. The reasons are as follows: when ordering, you may be full and there is less space for dessert. Not to mention, you can also divide desserts with friends. Just something worth thinking about!
Hear this now!
Wax protects your inner ears from bacteria. Use a cotton swab to clean your inner bladder to push it deeper. You should not put anything in the inner ear canal because it can irritate the fragile skin, increase the risk of infection, damage the tympanic membrane or damage the auditory bones. In fact, if you look at the packaging, you will even see a warning label, suggesting that you do not insert a cotton swab into your ear. Your ears can clean themselves well, and only the outer ears need to be taken care of (wipe gently with a cotton swab or towel).If you have any of the following symptoms: ear blockage, hearing loss, discomfort or prolonged itching, please refer to your doctor of medicine

A recipe that requires only two ingredients or less? Yes, please! Bonus: These recipes all feature chocolate.Joy to share her Dark Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries, chocolate pudding, with Dark Chocolate Crunch Bar.
5 key nutrients
Have you taken enough of these important nutrients: vitamin D, calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium, which together can protect bones, support the immune system, control blood pressure, and enhance muscle function? Try a super salad that provides all five nutrients.
Take some time to think about how you deal with obstacles. Do you complain or adapt to the problem? Be willing to change and remain optimistic. Your reaction can make the difference between frustration and success.
