What is the Healthy Diet for the Computer User

Computer Use Makes Our Bodies Demand Certain Nutrients More Than Others

Healthy eating or attempting to eat healthily is in fashion again. Everyone talks about organic food and fruits and vegetables. This is a good thing especially if we expect to have healthy younger generations to take care of us when we all grow old. If the coming generation is all sick there will be no one to take care of mum, dad and grandparents.

This issue is especially pressing in today’s world of overexposure to environmental toxins from computer use, workplace environment chemical and industrial pollution and so on. Many of these issues are not within the control of the average person. However, there is one in which many of us can exercise control. We can at least control what we put in our mouths in most cases.

Today’s work, school and home environments are computer intensive. That automatically exposes us to many artificial toxins creating stress in our bodies that specific nutrients are needed to handle. I learned all this the hard way when I fell dangerously ill. One of the contributing factors was that I had not been properly eating for the replenishment of particular nutrients heavily depleted by my computer use intensive work even though I was a healthy eater eating mainly organic food.

A fact of life is that though our bodies are created to self-repair, the repair function will not kick in unless all the requirements of the repair kit are in place and each item is in the exact configuration scripted in the code of the repair kit. That is the way codes work. As an IT professional, I will tell you that if the configuration the code of a process expects to find in any of the component of the process is corrupted or off in any way, the code will not run properly and you may end up with error filled results or in some cases it could crash the system such as when what we eat makes us sick or kills us (usually over time if we do not change our ways) and the system becomes overwhelmed with errors that are not corrected.

Since we expose ourselves to so much toxins from computer use and other environmental issues it is no brainer that eating organic (to avoid additional toxins from chemicals, pesticides and man made fertilizers) would be the way to go for a computer user to avoid overwhelming the body’s stress management system.

I learned the hard way that computer use stresses the body’s supply of minerals the brain uses a lot of such as iron and magnesium and vitamins such as Vitamin B, C and D and A/Beta Carotene (for the eyes).

My suggestion is to eat foods that can supply a lot of these nutrients and drink water to avoid dehydration also. Remember to eat organic fresh foods as much as possible. The extra cost will be returned many times over in the way of better health for all especially the kids we need to grow up healthy so they can take care of us in old age, reduced medical bills, higher productivity and maybe that long overdue promotion. Doing a whole Body Chemistry Blood work to determine depletion levels would be a good idea. It helped me. It could help you too.

These are just a few tips.

See you next time and do take care of yourself. We each have only one body and so our bodies are indispensable to us.

Five Personal Hygiene Tips for the Computer User

Personal Hygiene Tips to Help with Computer Keyboard and Monitor Toxic Exposure

  1. Wash your hands – The age old advice to wash your hands before eating is very important for computer users as our fingers are constantly coming in contact with harmful germs and microbes from the keyboard which could be harmful if ingested over time.
  2. Have a daily bath or soaped down shower – A shower water rinse is not enough – There are two reasons for doing this. Firstly because we look at the computer screen at close range, the light fields being emitted off the screen to enable us see the words and graphics we read are constantly magnetized to our skins from where they are absorbed into our bodies. It is important to note that our eyes are not the only way that we absorb light field, our entire body skin is an entry point. These rays also stick to our skins and if left on they could accumulate and cause damage to the light receptors in our skin. A daily bath or soaped down shower would be a good idea. Get one of those new body sponges or use a bath cloth to soap down and cleanse the skin..                                                                                    Secondly, the body wash will massage your muscles and help improve circulation issues caused by the sedentary nature of computer use.
  1. Wash your face – Apart from the hands and fore arm, the face is the next closest part of our body to the computer and is in direct contact with the light rays that radiate off the screen regular facial wash twice a day would be a great idea to remove residual chemicals from our faces and to also massage our facial skin and muscles that are fixated for the most part when we are on the computer.
  2. Avoid toxic products in cosmetics and body creams – Avoid increasing your exposure to toxins that could mix up with the toxic chemicals and light fields from the computer to create even more toxic materials that could clog the pores in our skin and affect the light receptors.
  3. Wash you hair – This will provide an opportunity to massage the scalp and improve circulation as well as wash off the toxic chemicals and light rays that accumulate on the hair follicles as a result of the proximity to the screen.
  4. Brush your teeth regularly – Many people may wander what the teeth has to do with it. Because the facial nerves are connected, infection in your eye nerves or the nerves that serve the skin and muscles around the jaw could result in tooth nerve infection. If you are having a lot of tooth nerve pain and other dental issues, this may be why.
