Eating Disorder ‘til Self Blaming

Top issue that was discovered just now is about how the girl adapted with social media. From social media, people can leave a comment in their platform which can cause the anxiety until serious problems such as suicide and stressed. What is the new problem? From the eyes is down to heart and from the words are down to feeling. Teenagers who use social media like Instagram or Twitter are having the problem that caused the bad and not supporting words left in their post. Currently, the effect of bad comments can make a new habit called eating disorder and self blaming.

Nowadays even though they have been aware of the danger of social media they are still scrolling up and down Instagram or Twitter. People tend to look and comment negatively with another achievement. But unfortunately sometimes they are using words like ‘ugly’, ‘fat’, ‘skinny’ and many more. So, they are using words with what it looks like then they try to make someone nicer or aware with their body but in fact this is their fault. Then what is an eating disorder? According to Wikipedia an eating disorder is a mental disorder defined by abnormal eating habits that negatively affect a person’s physical and/or mental health. Types of eating disorders include binge eating disorder, where people eat a large amount in a short period of time ( see more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_disorder). While self-blame is a cognitive process in which an individual attributes the occurrence of a stressful event to oneself. The direction of blame often has implications for individuals’ emotions and behaviors during and following stressful situations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-blame_(psychology)). From the definition above we know that two of current issues are the effect from negative income from other (social media users).

Often after accepting negative comments people feel underestimated and degraded. Finally they run into the way they feel comfortable with their stress and they can keep their problems without consulting or looking for another way like going out from the house or just talking with our close friend. Instead of looking for a consultant they prefer to trap with comfort zones through eating disorders and self-blaming. Eating disorder doesn’t only affect them physically but also mentally. In extreme cases, they’ve starved themselves, lost their weight but they are not satisfied. They still overthink about those hate comments.

Different case with self-blaming terms. People will blame themselves and ask “why am I born with this body likely and why am I fat, why am I skinny? Those questions always went on their head after a negative comment landed on their post with sensitive sense about body and other irrational standards about women and her beautifulness. 

  1. From this we can ask “does it cause our modern society where everything is offered from our hand (mobile phone)?” If you think so let’s give and appreciate people with polite, proper, and good words because we don’t know what others are going through. You might forget what you typed or commented, but it leaves a scar on their heart. Stop embracing unrealistic standards society made up because everyone is beautiful regardless of their size and condition. Whatever people look we should respect people’s passion and people’s choice to what they want to be and what they dream to.

5 Of Ancestor’s Favourite And Effective Medicine Methods You Should Try

     A healthy body makes us free and comfortable to do various kinds of activities that we want. A healthy body condition has sufficient supply of energy and stamina that enabling us to move more actively, think more creatively and work more productively. Therefore, health is the most precious asset from Allah swt that we should maintain very well. Maintaining health can be done by consuming healthy and nutritious food and drinks in a balanced portion, applying a regular diet and exercise, keeping the body, clothes and environment clean from dirth, germs and bacteria that cause disease and even conducting a preventive theraphy if it is needed.

     Apart from natural factors and destiny, our negligence in maintaining health can cause us to get sick. In this modern era where technology develops highly sophisticated, including in medical field, many people take chemical medicine as a solution to the health problems they face. Chemical medicine is a treatment that involves chemical drugs made by factory machines that can be obtained from hospitals, pharmacies and some can be bought at stalls that sell drugs. It is absolutely right that chemical drugs are practical, have the potential to prevent and cure diseases and some are quite easy to obtain at affordable prices. Yet, there are some dangers chemical medicine has which really need to be considered. Among them are the use of chemical drugs really requires a doctor’s recommendation. Taking chemical drugs without clear recommendation and appropriate dosage from a doctor or health experts has the potential to cause excessive anxiety due to the side effects of chemical drugs, an underdose or overdose, even disruptions to the performance of the systems in the body such as the nervous and brain systems, digestive system, respiratory circulation system , blood pressure, and other disorders in internal or external organs of the human body. In a short term, mistakenly taking chemical drugs as a home remedy, especially chemical drugs with a relatively fast working system, can cause a high risk of death for the user. Meanwhile, in a long term, the habit of consuming chemical drugs can trigger the need for an increased dose due to viral or bacterial resistance from diseases that have been experienced before. The most dangerous thing is if the resistance is increasing continuously and requires the presence of new chemical drugs as an effective substitute, while the drug is still not found, in this case the patient will be difficult to get help.

“Seeing the society’s complaints about their health problems today which are increasingly diverse, this is quite different from the condition of ancient peole who did not know various kinds of chemical medicines. The majority of people in ancient times were known to have stronger physical endurance so they rarely got sick. This is because they were familiar with several traditional medicine system. That system does not only focus on treatment methods, but also on prevention methods. Here are 5 traditional medicine methods believed to be effective and loved by the majority of people in ancient times that I would like to recommend you.”

1. Body Scraping
Body scraping is a traditional medicine method which is done by putting eucalyptus oil onto the body skin (generally on the back and back side of the neck) then scraping it with a coin or spoon until the skin looks reddish. This method has been believed to be able to remove wind trapped in the body which causes people to ‘catch a cold’ and ‘chill’.

2. Massage
Massage is a traditional medicine method that is most popular and lovable method and oftenly practiced by most of people today, or perhaps throughout time. This method consists of several types. Each of type has different massage techniques and benefits. Beauty massage is useful for treating the beauty of the body shape by tightening the muscles on the face or other desired body parts. Relaxation massage can help soothe tense muscles to relieve stress or simply for relaxation. Relaxation massage can be enjoyed by anyone even pregnant women and babies. Yet, of course for two last mentioned, the technique used is a little bit different. Here the touch and massage pressure are super super gentle and extra careful. In addition, there is also massage for treatment. This massage usually uses certain methods to treat certain health problems, such as pinched nerve, nausea, fever and headache, sprained ankle and others.

3. Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is a traditional medicine method that use herbal concoctions taken from herbal plants in nature and some products of animal. The concoctions are very diverse depending on the type of benefits of the herbs needed.

Ginseng, for example, can boost immune system and increase energy. STMJ (milk-eggs-honey-ginger) is useful for increasing stamina. Temulawak is useful for increasing appetite in children. Galian Singset is able to slim woman’s body and lower cholesterol. Rose water can be used as a natural toner for facial skin. Camomile tea and ginger tea is useful for relieving menstrual pain. The antiseptic substance in a boiled betel leaf can treat various types of skin diseases ranging from acne to itching. Coconut water is commonly used for first aid in case of food poisoning. The concoction of rice and kencur is helpful for warding off free radical and relieving muscle aches. In addition, the result of research at the University of Tanjungpura Pontianak found that the phenolic substance in kencur rice concoction can prevent diabetes. Aloe vera can be used as a natural remedy for a simple ringworm case. Honey is a herbal product of bee that has lots of functions for various kinds of diseases. And there are still many others. A perception that herbal concoction is always taste bitter is not completely right. There are several herbal concoctions that are sweet and tasty such as honey, camomile tea, lemon tea, turmeric-tamarind, turmeric-milk, turmeric- beluntas and many others. Also, herbal medicine is not always to be consumed as internal remedy but some are beneficial to apply as a body wash such as boiled betel leaves or facial wash such as rose water or even to put on the skin as an ointment.

“These herbal concoctions has been believed to be effective in prevention and medicine methods for centuries. In addition, herbal medicine does not cause too many serious side effects, can be easily made at home and are environmentally friendly.”

4. Cupping or Bekam
Cupping or Bekam is a medicine technique that is done by heating small cups filled with certain herbal concoction then placing it onto the desired skin until the hot air in the cup feels cold. This technique is believed to be able to flush out toxins in the body, relieve aches and inflammation throughout the body and provide relaxation.

5. Acupunture Theraphy
Acupuncture therapy is usually done by inserting special needles into acupuncture points of the body. This technique is believed to be able to overcome various complaints such as lower back pain, high blood pressure, fertility problems, stress, etc.

“By looking at the dangers of chemical medicine as mentioned before and then the advantages of traditional medicine which has less risk of causing side effects, is more environmentally friendly and easier to make yourself at home than chemical medicine, this way can be an alternative solution for us to overcome the health problems we may face.”

Social Media

Hello good people , it’s me… Thoyyibah 🙂

And on this occasion i will discuss social media

Social media is an online media that makes it easy for its users to conduct social interactions online. Social media is a tool that is becoming quite popular these days because of its user-friendly features. There they can communicate, network, share, and many other activities.

homeschooling

Homeschooling is a model of education or learning activities that are carried out outside the school area, either as a colleague or family or community where homeschooling itself is carried out. Another term that refers to homeschooling is home education, home-based learning, or independent schooling. Homeschooling is carried out in accordance with the abilities, needs, and potential of the students themselves. Many people define and define homeschooling, while according to Kak Seto Mulyadi as the Chairperson of the National Commission for Children, the emergence of homeschooling as an alternative needs to be proven successful as a competition appeal process through the non-formal system.
Homeschooling is usually designed in such a way so that children feel happy, comfortable, and feel free from learning so that they can achieve optimal results.
The following are some of the Pros of Home Schooling:
• Give more independence and individual creativity and not classical learning.
• Providing opportunities to achieve individual competence as much as possible, so that it does not always have to be limited to comparing it with the highest, average, or even low ability.
• Protected from outside relationships that deviate from good morals, and also in terms of food is more preserved and guarantees vitamins and nutrients.
• Helping children develop to understand themselves and their roles in the real world with freedom of opinion, rejecting or agreeing on certain values ​​without having to feel afraid of being criticized by friends or having low values.
• More opportunities for individual independence and creativity that are not found in the general school model.
• Maximizing children’s potential from an early age, without having to follow the standard time set at school.
• Are more ready to engage in the real world because the learning process is based on daily activities around them.
• Students also further develop their talents.
• Ability to get along with parents and of different ages.
• The cost of education can adjust to the circumstances of the parents.
Apart from the advantages or advantages of homeschooling, the following are the disadvantages of homeschooling, namely:
• Children who learn to homeschool do not interact with many friends of the same age or peers from various social statuses which can provide experiences for living in society.
• School is a unique place of learning that can train children and compete in achieving the highest ability and success.
• Homeschooling also affects individual development.
• Homeschooling is also likely to make children less prepared to face mistakes and uncertainties in the social environment. It can also be called socializing in the outside world.
• Very Need also high involvement from parents.
• Socialization for age is relatively low because homeschooling is more relevant for cross-age socialization, while school children are more relevant for age-old socialization.
• There is a lack of ability to work in teams, organizations, and leadership.
• Children also do not get adequate facilities like formal schools in general.
• Parental protection can have a side effect of being unable to resolve unpredictable or unexpected social situations and problems.

TRADITIONAL HEALTH

Assalamualaikum wr wb, hi readers, meet again with me luluk syifa, this time my writing assignment is about traditional health.  Ok, just get on with it.

 

TRADITIONAL HEALTH

 

When talking about health, health is the most important thing in our life, but we often forget it.  This is in accordance with what the Prophet Muhammad SAW said.  From Ibn Abbas said from Rasulullah ﷺ, “نِعْمَتَانِ مَغْبُونٌ فِيهِمَا كَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ ، الصِّحَّةُ وَالْفَرَاغُ” which means: “Two pleasures that most people often forget and neglect.”  (HR. Bukhari).

In essence, health is more expensive than property, because in reality no one wants to be given gold as big as the Himalayas, but on the condition that a healthy eye must be gouged out.  Not only that, another proof that health favors are more expensive than property, is that someone who is sick will be willing to pay any amount for his treatment so he can recover from his illness.  (KESEHATAN HANYA MAHKOTA YANG HANYA BISA DILIHAT OLEH ORANG YANG SAKIT)

 

Every human being will definitely feel pain, which is a condition in which the metabolism in the body does not work properly.  However, even though an illness is an unpleasant condition, as Muslims, we don’t have to complain much, because complaining too much is part of the syaithan temptation.  And according to Firesta Farizal, M.Psi., A psychologist “The pain that is felt by each person is also different and cannot be measured from one person to another because the pain felt by each human being is subjective so that the resulting response will be different.  Different for everyone, ”

 

When we feel pain, surely we will try to treat the pain somehow. And what is often done when we feel pain is to take medicine.  The alternative that is most often used is drug stalls because many people are lazy to go to the doctor if the complaints that come are mild and prefer to take over-the-counter drugs, or commonly known as drug stalls.  Most of the OTC drugs only treat the symptoms of the disease that arise and do not cure the root of the disease.  These OTC drugs are usually marked with a green circle with a black outline on the package.

 

Side effects of chemical drugs,  The habit of taking over-the-counter medicine too often and for a long time will be very dangerous for the body.  Often times those who take over-the-counter drugs do not know the exact level or dose.  Not a few people have died due to an overdose, due to taking over-the-counter drugs in excessive doses.  Medicines that are taken continuously for minor illness can make you addicted to the drug.  If your body is used to it, when you are sick and you don’t take the same medicine, your body will feel uncomfortable.  Drugs taken mostly only treat symptoms, not a real disease.  The real cause of the disease will not go away until you consult a doctor.

 

Some of the risks of disease that will strike if you take the drug excessively include:

  • Kidney damage due to chemicals in drugs (hepatocyte).
  • Irritation of the digestive system (stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea).
  • Changes in body temperature, blood pressure, pulse and heart rate.
  • Respiratory tract disorders (chest pain, shortness of breath).
  • The skin becomes hot and dry, or cold and clammy
  • Vomits blood or bloody stool.
  • In severe cases, can result in a coma and death.

 

But we as Indonesians who are famous for our diversity can produce various kinds of traditional medicines.  According to the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM), Traditional Medicine (OT) is an ingredient or an  ingredient in the form of plants, animal parts, minerals, or a mixture of these ingredients that is used from generation to generation for treatment.  Traditional medicine is also often called Natural Medicine (OBA).

 

The virtues of herbal medicine include:

  1. Herbal medicine does not cause side effects, because it is made from natural and complex herbs.

Herbal remedies are very effective for diseases that are difficult to treat medically.

  1. Herbal medicine is curative, meaning that it is really healing because the treatment is at the source of the disease. Based on some research that has been done by experts, herbal medicine is very suitable for health problems, especially chronic and degenerative diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, rheumatism, asthma, the spread of cancer cells, tumors, and others.
  2. Herbal remedies are more affordable and easy to make because herbal medicine is a medicine that comes from nature itself, so the price tends to be cheaper than chemical drugs.
  3. Besides that, herbal medicines are also very easy to make, because in making herbal medicines you do not need to use sophisticated tools and technology.
  4. Usually, herbal medicines are processed by boiling, pounding, or mixing with other herbal ingredients with certain compositions.
  5. The main reason is due to the nature of traditional medicinal ingredients which are natural so that they can be digested by the body.

 

So, for readers, if they experience complaints of illness, don’t rush to take chemical drugs, but it would be better to use the spices around the house, such as:

 

🍁Turmeric, According to Professor Amir Soebandrio, Director of the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, the curcumin content in turmeric in general can improve body health.  “Because there are several studies that curcumin has effects such as reducing inflammation, some say the antioxidant effect, it is all in essence to improve health, endurance.

 

🍁 Ginger, you can use ginger to help maintain endurance.  “The ginger in  a compound in ginger can be used for anti-inflammatory or flu, inflammation, as well as some antioxidants in spices for body immunity,” said Professor Dodik Briawan, IPB community nutritionist.

Simply boil a few segments of ginger,  then drink the boiled water.  Apart from providing a warm effect, ginger can relieve coughs and relieve nasal congestion due to colds.

At first glance, I can share with you.  May be useful

TRASH

Trash is defined as solid, disalcum, undesirable, and discarded. We still think that garbage is a trivial item and throw it away as we please wherever we are. It is not uncommon for us to see road users casually throwing garbage in front of the merchandise without feeling troubled. On the side of the road is a pile of garbage that resembles a small mountain, scattered. In the trenches are also seen full of various kinds of garbage. From this incident it can be said that the community has not realized that the waste dumped has an impact on public health and cause squalo.

In ancient human life, garbage has not been a problem. But with the increasing population with fixed space, the more days the problem of garbage becomes bigger. This is evident from the changing modernization of life and the development of technology in which human activity is increasing. The more diverse activities, various types of waste produced, especially garbage coming from housing. In a sense this waste is produced by locals who carry out the disposal of the remains of the goods or products they have used. Waste consumption is waste produced by humans as users of goods.

In connection with human activities, the problem of waste will be related, both in terms of social, economic, and cultural. The health of a person or society is a social problem that is always related between the components that exist in society.

If it can be secured, waste will not be a potential effect on the environment. However, managed waste is not in a place that guarantees environmental safety. It has an impact on public health, the environment becomes rundown, and appeals to a variety of animals, such as flies and dogs, that can carry diseases. Potential health hazards that can be posed such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and fungi can spread quickly, because unmanaged garbage can mix with drinking water and spread disease viruses.

Liquid seepage garbage can enter the drainage or river and will pollute the water. Various organisms in the water, including fish, can die. More extreme, some aquatic species may vanish and result in changing biological aquatic ecosystems. Waste dumped into the water will produce organic acids and organic liquefied gases such as methane. In addition to smelling unpleasant, in high concentrations of gas (methane) this can explode. Surely it can harm the wider community.

It is not uncommon for existing garbage to fill the trenches around the house, causing flooding. The rainy season becomes an unpleasant season for the community, especially in dense settlements. The trenches are no longer able to drain water to the maximum, because it is blocked by piles of garbage. This resulted in unstoppable rainwater and the memory of the yard. Existing puddles carry an unpleasant smell, as well as kill the grasses in the yard and other open spaces.

When viewed in some areas, this incident of littering often occurs in urban areas. The question is whether the villagers are better behavior than the towns community?

The City Without Slums Program (Kotaku) is not only physically intervention but also social, economic and cultural / behavior of the community. Therefore, it is necessary to make efforts to prevent slums. Do not let then slum 0% (based on the current area) but instead appear new slums in other areas. Of course, tactical and sustainable measures are needed by all components of society for the sake of human survival.

It’s time for a change in waste management to be made. Waste management means the collection, transportation, processing, recycling, or disposal of waste. Good waste management can certainly reduce its negative impact on health, environment, and beauty, in addition to being a slum prevention.

District/city governments can take appropriate policies to deal with existing waste problems. The waste problem is a very urgent issue and should be a priority of the district / city government. The involvement and support of the whole community is certainly important for the realization of government programs. Government policy can be in the form of allocating existing waste in the district / city to a suitable place. The appropriate place should be far from the settlements of the inhabitants. The distance of the trash can with the source of clean water should also be a concern, because the garbage that is thrown away can contaminate the source of clean water. Various diseases can be caused by contaminated water sources, such as abdominal pain. And, last but not least, trash cans should be far from agricultural areas and plantations. Non-biodegradable decomposed waste can cause solid soil and cover the soil surface. Both of these reduce soil fertility so that agricultural areas are no longer able to produce well.

In addition, burying waste is one way in waste management. This method is very popular in all parts of the world. Burial of garbage can be carried out in abandoned soil, mining pits, or natural pits. A well-managed burial site produces a hegenis and inexpensive dump. Garbage burial avoids contact with the atmosphere layer. Directly exposed waste can cause unpleasant odors, unintractive landscapes and nests for different types of microorganisms and makrorganism causes and carriers of diseases.

Special organic waste can be used as an environmentally friendly organic fertilizer (biological processing). Biological substances can be plant substances, food waste or paper. One example of waste management using composting techniques is the Green Bin Program in Toronto, Canada. That is, household organic waste, such as kitchen waste and plant pieces, is collected in special bags for composting.

Changing existing organic waste can bring its own advantages. Fertilizers derived from organic waste can be used for personal purposes, even for sale. Organic fertilizer material is very easy to get, and this fertilizer is famously environmentally friendly. Non-organic waste such as bottles, and used cans can be used as useful things with a touch of art. With his creativity, people can create artificial flowers with plastic and used pipettes and use used cans for their pots. There are also many toys that can be made from non-organic waste such as cans and bottles, for example to make a toy-making car. In short we can turn existing garbage into items that have artistic value and even selling value.

Traditional Health

Health is the most valuable treasure for us. Even though we have abundant possessions but we are sick, we will not be able to enjoy these treasures. Health itself consists of physical health and mental health. Physical health is when our bodies do not have diseases or injuries due to certain diseases. While mental health is health related to our souls. Mental health is usually related to a person’s mental condition that is disturbed or just fine. There are several things we can do to maintain our physical and mental health. First, exercising, maintaining endurance, and strengthening our immune system so that getting sick is not easy. Second, eat healthy foods to make our bodies not malnourished and stay healthy. The third is sufficient rest to ensure that our bodies are not tired and that our immunity stays stable. Meanwhile, we should refresh our minds by walking or visiting tourist sites to improve our mental wellbeing, so that we don’t get overwhelmed.
Most people are stricken with diseases during this pandemic. Most of them get ill because they are not healthy enough to fend off the incoming virus with their immunity. One of the major reasons is the immune deficiency in warding off this disease because they feel afraid of contracting the disease so that they feel overwhelmed and decrease their immunity in warding off the disease. Chemical medicine is the quickest alternative to the treatment of someone’s condition in this modern age because chemical drugs have a quicker response to pain relief, chemical drugs are much easier to access because they are readily available in pharmacies or other drugstores. Chemical medicines, however, have harmful effects that many people do not realize, such as long-term use, which would make our bodies suffer from new chemicals-induced diseases.
