Health problem during fasting

Of course, there're changes in eating habits during fasting. These changes can make your body shocked that might arise some problems.

Problems that arise include the following:

1. Dehydration

Dehydration is one of the problems that often occur. Actually, this problem doesn't need to happen when you keep drinking eight glasses of water every day.

Your body is really good at regulating the amount of fluid as long as it's fulfilled. Hence, don't forget to take it. Also avoid activities that expend a lot of sweat or fluid.

2. Constipation

Sometimes, you've forgotten fiber intake, such as vegetables and fruit, when fasting. Therefore, don't forget to include vegetables and fruit at every meal. Fluid should also be adequately met. Sport ain't neglected because it'll keep bowel movement.

3. Bloating

This problem often occurs during fasting because the amount of stomach acid decreases. The brain reacts to give orders to the stomach to produce more acid when you think or smell food. As a result, the amount of stomach acid rises, and its impact is bloating.

In addition, eating foods that contain many gases, such as egg, cabbage, soft drink, heavy meal, fried food, fat or spices, can also cause flatulence.

4. Headache

The cause of headache can vary, among other things, because of dehydration, hunger, lack of rest or addictive losing such as caffeine or nicotine. Try to avoid caffeine or nicotine two weeks before fasting if the cause is addiction.

Rest enough. The portion of sleep for eight hours a day should still be met.

5. Blood sugar shortage

Lest you're experiencing a shortage of blood sugar if you got weakness, fatigue, difficult concentrating, profuse sweating, trembling, headache and shortness of breath. If you ain't diabetic, the problem of shortage of blood sugar can happen when you mostly eat sugar or refined carbohydrate.

As a result, your body produces more insulin to neutralize it. But it's mostly, so that your blood sugar is down.

6. Bad breath

Bad breath or halitosis is often experienced if you're fasting. Your mouth doesn't chew when you're fasting. Saliva production is decreased because of no activity. Under normal circumstances, the amount of saliva product is one liter, useful to kill disease-causing bacteria originating from the remnants of food left in your mouth.

When saliva production is suspended, of course, bacteria feast while spreading the odor from your mouth. As well as the cessation of saliva production, the leftovers remain gathered in your mouth, ain't pushed into your esophagus. The decay process is there.

You gotta pay attention to oral and dental health to cope with bad breath. Brush your teeth thoroughly. Frequent gargling participates in making your mouth clean and damp, thus preventing bad breath.
