SMKN1Slahung – Fasting worship in addition to beneficial to mental health from the spiritual side, can also be useful for physical health.This has been proven by various studies such as one conducted by researchers at the University of Southern California (USC).
In a report in the journal Cell Stem Cell 2014 researchers found that by fasting stem cells for white blood responsible for immunity could be encouraged to regenerate.This is known after the researchers conducted experiments on mice.
By applying a fasting diet pattern of not eating for 2-4 days for some time in a month, immune cells that are damaged or old are forced to die and then new cells will appear.
“When you are starving, the body system will try to save energy and one way is to recycle immune cells that are not needed especially damaged,” said one researcher, Valter Longo, as quoted from the official university website, USC News, Monday (05/29/2017).

Valter describes this process as an airplane that throws excess cargo to make its flight lighter.Well when fasting the body will seek energy reserves by destroying glucose, fat, ketone, and white blood cells.
Furthermore, researchers say the fasting enzyme called PKA and hormone IGF-1 will also be reduced.Enzymes and hormones are linked into a trigger signal for the body’s cells begin to regenerate.
“So if your immune system is badly damaged by chemotherapy or aging, by fasting then the immune system can regenerate to become new,” added Valter.
SMKN1Slahung – Diabetes is one of the serious diseases that contribute the highest mortality rate in Indonesia.This disease is characterized by a body that does not produce insulin (blood sugar control hormone) or insulin in the body does not work well.
In the United States, diabetes patients with HbA1c levels above 7 are not allowed to fast, because they are at higher risk of hypoglycemia (low sugar levels).
Different things apply in Indonesia, where diabetic patients with high blood sugar levels are still allowed to run the fast.How to keep fasting smoothly?
“Be careful to drink it should be enough, and ask the doctor where the medicine is changed in the direction or insulinnya reduced how much,” said Dr. Roy Panusunan Sibarani, SpPD-KEMD media meeting at the Ministry of Health Building, Jl HR Rasuna Said, South Jakarta, Recently.

When fasting diabetic patients then feel hungry and cold sweat, immediately monitor the sugar levels in the body.Because it could be a symptom of hypoglycemia.
“If the hunger is extraordinary and there is cold sweat, wah hipo it is bad, check the blood sugar, then stop fasting,” explained dr Roy.
Normal blood sugar levels range from 70-130 mg / dL.If your blood sugar level is below 70 mg / dL, you will have hypoglycemia.Immediately cancel fasting and consumption of foods high in protein and water.
“Certainly must be meal, looking for food that is long lived in the stomach so we do not get down the blood sugar, eat a lot of water when meal or breaking fast”, he concluded.
SMKN1Slahung – Sleep deprivation is not good for health.However, if the lack of sleep also has a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes, the danger can be doubled.
A recent study by Julio Fernandez-Mendoza, sleep psychologist from Sleep Research and Treatment Center, Penn State’s Milton S Hershey Medical Center said sleeping less than 6 hours a day may double the risk of death from heart disease and stroke.
This warning applies to those who already have risk factors for heart disease and diabetes before, or commonly called the metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome itself consists of high blood pressure, high cholesterol (LDL), high blood sugar, obesity and high blood fat or triglyceride levels.
Julio came to this conclusion after observing more than 1300 men and women aged 49 years who were asked to stay in the laboratory for one night.39 Percent of participants had at least three risk factors.
17 Years later a follow-up study and 22 percent of participants were reported to have died.

According to Julio, the cause can vary.One of them is from lifestyle aspect.”It could be that those with metabolic syndrome and lack of sleep also tend to be more sedentary (spend time sitting around) and poor diet, thus increasing the risk of the disease,” he explained.
Plus, lack of sleep alone is able to raise the risk of premature death, especially for those who have blood pressure and high blood sugar levels.
“Those with metabolic syndrome and sleep deprivation are more problematic with their anatomic nervous system and metabolism,” continued Julio.
However, Julio asserted, the link between sleep deprivation and the high risk of early death is not causal, meaning it can still be modified although it can not be underestimated.

Relation to the month of fasting, sleeping hours are usually cut to eat Sahur, but Muslims are not advised to go straight to bed as the meal is finished.
Dr Ari Fahrial Syam SpPD-KGEH, MMB, FINASIM, FACP, gastrointestinal and gastrointestinal consultant from FKUI / RSCM explained, this is because stomach acid can return to the esophagus and cause problems in the gastrointestinal tract.
Nevertheless, work productivity can stay awake despite hours of sleep cut off.Dr Andreas Prasadja, RPSGT advises those who fast for naps.
“Because bedtime is already cut off time of dawn, so we need additional sleep, napping can be the solution,” said the man who is familiarly called Dr. Ade, in a conversation with detikHealth some time ago.
The duration of a nap in the month of fasting or on an ordinary day is the same, which is still 30 minutes.But for office workers, nap time depends on the work and condition of each office.If it is possible to nap for 30 minutes, according to Dr. Ade this is already very bangus.
“But if you can not even 10-15 minutes also not okay then maximize also sleep on the trip for example who ride the train can sleep on the road, after dawn can also sleep, just do not while driving yes,” the message.
SMKN1Slahung – Almost everyone has experienced fart.Commonly, there will usually be an unpleasant smell from the exit gas.
According to gastroenterologist NYU Langone Medical Center in New York, Lisa Ganjhu, fart is one of the process of disposal of gas from the body.Gas itself is one of the ‘byproducts’ of any food you consume.
When you eat, the body will digest the food.The bacteria left in the gastrointestinal tract, which usually consist mostly of carbohydrates, triggers gas.”This gas must come out of the body through the rectum as flatus, or also called fart,” said Ganjhu, as quoted fromWomen’s Health Mag.
Why do some farts smell and some do not?The reason is simple, the smell of fart is influenced from what you eat.Ganjhu explains, if for example you eat foods with high sulfur such as asparagus, cabbage, or bokchoy, then the smell of fart will become stronger.
“Similarly, if you have sensitivity or intolerance to certain foods, the body will usually react with a stronger fart smell,” he added.
In addition, if you’re constipated, chances are you have a fart that smells will also be bigger.This is because you have more food remaining in your intestines.When the gas passes through, the farts will smell stronger.
In order not to smell too fart, try not to hold the bowel movements that can trigger constipation.Regular bowel movements can help ensure your digestive system is cleaner and smoother.Likewise with the fart, avoid the habit of holding it because the gas is retained can ferment and become more odor on exit.
To smooth and digest your digestive system, pay attention to your diet.Consume probiotics and make sure you eat enough fiber to keep the intestines intact.
SMKN1Slahung – Hypoglycemia is a condition in which blood sugar levels in the body are below normal.Blood sugar levels normally range from 70-130 mg / dL.
“Everyone’s Hipo is not the same There are parents who have long diabetes, 105 are already hipo,” said Dr. Roy Panusunan Sibarani, SpPD-KEMD at a media meeting at the Ministry of Health Building, Jl HR Rasuna Said, South Jakarta, recently this.
At the time of fasting blood sugar levels in the body can go down in the absence of food and drink intake for approximately 13 hours.Fasting diabetic patients are at increased risk of hypoglycemia.
There are several phases of the symptoms of hypoglycemia, starting from a very ordinary phase to the highest dangerous phase.
The initial symptoms of hypoglycemia are a very hungry state, followed by the appearance of cold sweat.The next phase is this patient looks like a confused person and loss of focus.
And the highest phase is consciousness start nenurun then fainted.More severe can lead to comatose patients.
By knowing the dangers of hypoglycemia, it is hoped that the patient can prevent the risk.
“The important thing we know the symptoms,” said Dr. Roy.
Jakarta- To overcome the problem of lack of donor organs, researchers in the world tried various ways to search for an alternative organ.One of the latest is the human heart grow spinach leaves wear life.
Researchers from Worcester Polytechnic Institute reported in the journal Biomaterials that spinach leaves is used as a template.By using special techniques, plant cells that exist in the leaf is removed and then replaced with living cells of the human heart.

Why spinach leaves were used by researchers because vaskulernya network much like a human heart.In the leaf vascular tissue used to transport fluids and nutrients to all parts of a plant like blood vessels.
Thus the hopes of human cells can be formed in the leaves and can be formed slowly grow into organs intact.
“Still much to do, but so far it seems very promising,” said Professor Glenn Gaudette of WPI as quoted byScience Daily,Thursday (23/03/2017).
“Adapting using abundant plant that has been cultivated by farmers over thousands of years could solve a number of problems that limit the field,” said Prof. Glenn.
Besides spinach researchers also did research on other plants that have potential.For example, the roots of the plant legumes could possibly be used as a framework for growing tissue with blood vessels smooth.
