Mumbling Mommy

If you want to keep you and your family happy and healthy then you may be shocked at the things discussed below that could be working against this. Keep reading to find out what they are and how to deal with them more healthily.  

Getting too many vitamins 

We’re all told that vitamins are crucial for our health, and that’s why many of us take additional supplements. However, balance is crucial here as too much of a good thing can also make us sick. For instance, too much vitamin K, D, E, and A can be toxic to your body if you take too much, with vitamin A causing bone problems. 

The solution to this is to make sure you know how much of any vitamin you are meant to take in a daily dose and consult with your doctor before you change it or add a new one. 

Washing raw meat 

Many people wash raw meat before they cook it because they believe they are ridding it of any nasty bacteria that could make them ill. However, studies have shown that it can be much more damaging to wash raw meat, primarily because it encourages contamination of your sink and the surrounding area.

Instead of washing your meat the next time you cook it, make sure you keep it separate from all the other ingredients and wash your hands directly after you have finished with it. Use a food thermometer to make sure it’s cooked to the correct temperature as well. 


If we are allergic to something it triggers our immune systems. Indeed an allergic reaction is precisely that – our immune system being triggered by an otherwise harmless substance, gearing up to fight it off. 

When our immune system is triggered our bodies can also experience a longer immune inflammatory response, and this can cause us to feel unwell and even experience cold and flu-like systems in addition to the acute symptoms of the allergy. 

The solution to this issue is to avoid and protect yourself from the thing to which you are allergic. However, to do this it’s often a good idea to get allergy testing done first. This is because such testing can reveal any potential allergens without the need to expose you to them in any significant and possibly dangerous way. 

Bad oral health 

We are only just now starting to realize the link between good overall health and good oral health. Indeed, those with poor oral health are more likely to develop issues like type 2 diabetes and heart issues. 

With that in mind, it’s crucial that you not only take good care of your teeth but that you also install an excellent oral hygiene routine in your children as well. After all, if they get used to taking great care of their teeth now, which includes regular brushing, and flossing, you can help them stay healthy and not only avoid dental problems in the future but health issues like the ones mentioned above as well.
