What are those floaty things in your eye Michael Mauser
Have you ever noticed something swimmingin your field of visioné It may look like a tiny wormor a transparent blob, and whenever you try to geta closer look, it disappears, only to reappearas soon as you shift your glance. But don't go rinsing out your eyes! What you are seeing is a common phenomenon known as a floater. The scientific name for these objectsis Muscae volitantes,
Latin for quot;flying flies,quot; and true to their name,they can be somewhat annoying. But they're not actually bugsor any kind of external objects at all. Rather, they exist inside your eyeball. Floaters may seem to be alive,since they move and change shape, but they are not alive. Floaters are tiny objectsthat cast shadows on the retina, the lightsensitive tissueat the back of your eye.
They might be bits of tissue, red blood cells, or clumps of protein. And because they're suspendedwithin the vitreous humor, the gellike liquidthat fills the inside of your eye, floaters drift alongwith your eye movements, and seem to bounce a littlewhen your eye stops. Floaters may be onlybarely distinguishable most of the time.
They become more visiblethe closer they are to the retina, just as holding your hand closerto a table with an overhead light will result in a moresharply defined shadow. And floaters are particularly noticeable when you are lookingat a uniform bright surface, like a blank computer screen, snow, or a clear sky,
where the consistency of the backgroundmakes them easier to distinguish. The brighter the light is,the more your pupil contracts. This has an effect similarto replacing a large diffuse light fixture with a single overhead light bulb, which also makesthe shadow appear clearer. There is another visual phenomenonthat looks similar to floaters but is in fact unrelated. If you've seen tiny dots of lightdarting about
when looking at a bright blue sky, you've experienced what is knownas the blue field entoptic phenomenon. In some ways,this is the opposite of seeing floaters. Here, you are not seeing shadows but little moving windowsletting light through to your retina. The windows are actually causedby white blood cells moving through the capillariesalong your retina's surface. These leukocytes can be so largethat they nearly fill a capillary
6 Warning Signs of Protein Deficiency
Alright FitLifers, Drew Canole, I'm here withmy good friend and , Ching Chen. She's here from New York; she flew all the way into be with you, to be here, taking a stand for this really powerful movement that you'recreating in your life. She's a of Western Medicine but she also looks at the human bodyas a whole so a lot of the people that she works with FitLifers, instead of writing prescriptionsto them as what a do, she actually looks more integrative at the holistic mapof the body so that the tutorials that you watch with her in them are going to be from herown personal experience from working with hundreds of individuals up in New York andthroughout the world, that have literally
transformed their life by using her methodsand tools. So now you're here to talk about six warning signs, yeah we're going to talkabout the six warning signs of protein deficiency and of course if you busted up your knee likeI did you're going to need a lot of protein to rebuild that muscles back up. So I knowpeople are thinking right now, they're like 'whoa how much protein should I have duringthe dayé' You told me a real quick calculation that seems to work for you and your client'srighté Yeah, so in general what you want to do is take your weight divide it by two becausewe're approximately converting it to kilograms okayé So, if you're a hundred pounds dividedby two you would be about 50 kgs. Okayé And
so you take that and divide it into your threemeals alrighté And your two snacks because you want to have even amount of energy throughoutthe day. So if you are 50 kg what you would do, you would have about that's someone that'svery light, you know really tiny Asian chicks like half my size by the way. So anyway, youwould divide that through five meals about ten grams of protein per meal. Cool. It'ssuper easy righté Simple. Cool. So what are the six warning signs of being protein deficientéWell one of the most common ones you can actually see on everybody's face and it's having puffycheeks like you know that of a really cute kid, like thisé Yes chipmunk, chipmunk's face,righté You're like really pinchable stuff.
and what everybody really likes. Well actuallythat pinchable stuff is actually a proteincarbohydrate imbalance. You know that thing that you cansee in the face most commonly is you have swollen eyes and so like if you look at theparents and they have eyelids righté And you have an indent but you don't see it in thekid, well that's part of it as well. But the swelling goes elsewhere in the body, you know,you can have swollen hands like you have this little round puff here, and you think likeoh that's cool, and cute but that's actually swelling from protein deficiency, you canalso see it in the wrist. So then also you mentioned thinning hair as well, one of thesigns righté Absolutely. So a lot of people
wonder like and you'll see it very very commoneven in kids because you know when they first were born, they didn't have a full headedhair and it's kind of thinning up here already and so that thinning actually has a lot todo with protein deficiency but it also has a good part to do with genetics and you'vegot, because if your parents have this already, you look at the father and mother and theyalready have thinning part, it also gets passed down to children as well. Alright, so if everyou wake up in the morning and you have brain fog, and you feel little lethargic it's notbecause you're not you know getting enough caffeine or anything like it, it's actuallybecause you could be protein deficient righté
Yes absolutely, so you know, because you don'thave enough protein and nutrients that actually feed your brain, that's causing like this,really like blahlike feeling and so you won't be excited about life you know, and most peoplefor instance take antidepressive but actually what they really need to do is look into theirdiet and look into the amount of protein that they eat, good protein that it. Cool. Peoplewho have protein deficiency will also experience very dry, flaky skin along with skin discolorationyou know, you'll be spotty all the time and it's not so good looking but also becausewhen you're protein deficient you'll look, open up your skin to have other opportunistto take infections as well, like fungus, Candida,
