Here's a bonus for you. Peladophobia, the fear of bald people. Fear is a natural emotionthat we all experience. It's an evolutionary trait thathas helped humans understand and avoid danger for thousands of years. But for some, their fear becomes a phobia, an anxiety disorder that causes them to be persistently fearful ofan object or situation.
And while some are quitecommon, like arachnophobia, because spiders are God's mistake, others are beyond irrationaland straightup weird, so today I gathered theabsolute strangest phobias that people have, andyes, these are all real. So here they are, 10extremely bizarre phobias people actually have. Number one is ablutophobia.
Taking a bath is a relaxing activity that many people enjoy, butnot everyone feels that way. People with ablutophobia have an abnormal and unwarranted fear of bathing, washing, or cleaning themselves, in general, ugh. Statistically, morewomen and children suffer from this phobia than men, although childrengenerally grow out of it.
Faced with bathing, ablutophobes will show common phobia responses, such as panic, shortness of breath, and they will go above andbeyond to avoid the bath. In other words, try toget them in the bath and they'll go mental on you. This phobia's been around for a long time, in fact, the film Psycho,from 1960, was one of
the earliest horror filmsto effect its audience with this type of phobia, after thefamous shower murder scene. For anyone affected bythis, I have a simple cure. Just do what I do, lay backwith some scented candles and a Celine Dion record playing I mean, only take a shower,because showers are for men. Yeah. Number two is philophobia.
Some people â™« Stop in the name of love â™« And other people get utterlycrippled in fear by it. People with philophobiahave a strong, unwarranted, and persistent fear of falling in love. This fear can evolve froma horrible experience from a past love or relationship, leading to the desire tobe secluded from others.
What are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms
Hey guys, Axe here. I want to talk aboutthe many benefits of vitamin D as well as vitamin D deficiency. So many people are strugglingwith vitamin D deficiency. In fact, according to a lot of medical studies today, they'reshowing that quite possibly the top deficiency we have in America is a vitamin D deficiency,and for a lot of us there are several reasons for that. But let me talk about the symptomsof vitamin D deficiency. I'm then going to get into what's causing vitamin D deficiency,then go over the best foods, supplements and things you can do to correct this type ofissue. But first and foremost, the big thing thatcan cause or the big symptoms you might have
with a vitamin D deficiency are immune issues.If you have a weakened immune system, that could be correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have candida or bacterial overgrowth, it can be caused from a vitamin D deficiency.If you struggle with let's say emotional ups and downs, like depression and anxiety, thatcan be a cause. Hormone imbalance, major cause of vitamin D deficiency. If you have troubleputting on muscle or losing weight, those are all correlated with a vitamin D deficiency.If you have weak bones or teeth, osteoporosis or osteopenia, those are warning signs youhave a vitamin D deficiency. So again, you can see there are a lot of things and I didn't even get into certain other
things like cancer and diabetes and heartdisease but those are all warning signs you could have a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is responsible for really supportinga healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and here's a key thing toremember. Vitamin D is not just a vitamin. It's also a pro hormone. So it's responsiblefor so many hormone producing reactions within your body. You've got to have vitamin D. Now here are the biggest causes of vitaminD deficiency. Number one is not getting enough sunlight. The sun should be your number onesource of vitamin D. We live in a world today
where we live inside, especially if you'rein the northern states, whether it be in Canada or northern US or northern Europe. But ifyou are not getting outside enough and not getting enough direct sunlight on your skin,that will create a vitamin D deficiency. So starting off, the majority of people are vitaminD deficient because we don't get outside enough. And the other thing can be certain chemicals,especially things that are plastic in nature, those can block vitamin D absorption. So ifyou're drinking out of plastic bottles that have something called BPA, that's bisphenolA, that can cause vitamin D deficiency and really affect the way vitamin D is absorbedand utilized and created by your liver in
your body. The other thing is toxicity. If you're exposedto toxins on a regular basis, that affects the liver. Your liver is actually responsiblefor producing and creating vitamin D within your body. So again, toxicity another majorcause of vitamin D deficiency. So if you want to start to correct vitaminD deficiency and see improvements in your immune function, in your metabolism, in yourhormones and things like your thyroid and your adrenal glands and improving your overallmood and bone strength, you've got to get more vitamin D.
Again, your number one source by far is sunlight.I recommend getting outside 20 minutes to 30 minutes every single day. Even if it'scold outside, getting a little bit of sun on your face and hands, it's so importantfor getting Vitamin D. So again, number one is get sunlight 20 to 30 minutes a day. Now, apart from that, certain foods will containsmall amounts of vitamin D. Number one source will be wild caught salmon or fish, so againgetting wild caught fish on a regular basis. Also, raw fermented milk, like a goat's milkyogurt, may have small amounts of vitamin D, as will mushrooms and eggs. But again,you're going to get very small amount in diet.
