Effects From Eating Ice

Ice probably doesn’t feature very highly on our dream menus, and that’s hardly surprising. Asides being used to chill drinks on a hot day, there is little to be said for ice as a menu item. However, a couple of people have the habit of often eating ice. As it turns out, this habit can be considerably unpleasant. I had experienced some rather undesirable ice effects, like when the ice blocks made my teeth go all chill. Also, when my teeth ached for a bit after I indulged in a drink with the ice blocks still very much in it. My experience was on the milder side, as eating ice can have more pronounced and deleterious effects than merely causing the teeth to ache for a bit. Let me share some of the more severe effects of eating ice.

Chewing On Ice Can Cause Many Dental Issues

Eating Ice can cause several dental severe issues. It might even take the form of a ripple effect. Let me put it this way–if you continuously binge on ice over time, the tooth enamel, which is not designed to assist in the digestion of ice, starts to wear down and become weaker. Eventually, the enamel broke down, and the cavity developed. The development of tooth decay leads to increased teeth sensitivity, gum trouble, which might ultimately require a root canal treatment to alleviate the pain. Several serious but otherwise avoidable dental issues arise from eating ice.

Munching On Ice Hurts Your Stomach

The potential adverse effects of eating ice may not only be restricted to the oral cavity. An increasing number of people bemoan of stomach trouble after eating ice. I have, on occasion, felt a bit of stomach discomfort after taking icy drinks. It was bad enough that I still cringe a bit on remembering the chilly uncomfortable feeling the last time it happened. I imagine the pain is probably way worse with pagophagia. Eating Ice may also slow down digestion so that you may end up with indigestion and the attendant effects. If you have an ulcer, you will better off skipping ice as it can worsen the stomach linings’ irritation, causing pain.

Eating Ice Can Be A Sign Of A Disease

I would also like to point out that eating ice is that it can be harmful, not so much for what it does, which can be very serious, but for what it shows – the underlying condition behind it. Eating Ice may be due to iron deficiency, calcium deficiency, or even possible mental health issues. If the ice eating is a component of an eating disorder called pica, where non-edible items are ingested, the other parts may hold more harmful effects for the body. Regardless of which it is, it should be referred for medical attention.

Conclusion

I wouldn’t be recommending ice as a regular menu item anytime soon. It’s okay enough when it’s used to chill drinks, but that should be about it. As I have pointed out above, eating ice comes with several potentially damaging effects. When considered with the fact that it has no nutritional value, it becomes something you are far better off not eating. However, where a compulsive urge to eat ice exists, prompt medical attention should be sought as it may be a sign of a severe underlying condition that needs to be treated.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
