eyelids shake


Has it ever happened to you that out of a sudden one of your eyes starts to shake? These spasm are known as “tics” and they could be caused by health problems. Read more to know why your eyelids shake!

These contractions in the eye can be either in the lower or the upper eyelid, they appear unexpectedly and they disappear in the same way they started, though in some cases they could go on for weeks.

What is the cause for these spasms? It could be the following:

  • You are constantly exposed to bright lights (it can be artificial like the one of the cellphone, laptop or tablet
  • You drink alcohol or caffeine in excess
  • You are tired or stressed.
  • Smoke tobacco
  • You are constantly exposed to strong winds or air conditioning which dry your eyes.

The spasms normally disappear in a while, the sensation isn’t painful but could be annoying. And actually this is perfectly normal. You do already know the causes for these sporadic spasms.

Well then, if the tic lasts for several weeks you might be suffering some sort of brain disorder, like facial paralysis, Parkinson, Tourette syndrome, etc. If it goes on, go to the doctor.

Calories in alcoholic drinks

I’m that kind of people who think that no diet should be an obstacle to enjoy the things we like, we can have a perfectly normal life but with a more creative vision to keep our healthy habits. Why not enjoy alcoholic drinks once in a while?

I sometimes go out, or hang out with friends and we want to try a new drink, but we come across the dilemma of the calories and most of times we don’t drink because we are afraid of the calories. Well, I decided to find out how much calories alcoholic drinks have, so I could know which ones I could mix with juice or sugar.

These are the calories in alcoholic drinks:

  • 1 cup of wine has around 65 calories.
  • 1 beer has around 100 calories.

  • 1 shot of rum has 111 calories.
  • 1 cup of cognac has 112 calories.

Acidez estomacal – Estos alimentos pueden ser la causa

acidez estomacal


No hay sensación más incómoda que la de la acidez estomacal. La comida que te llevas a la boca puede ser la causa del reflujo ácido, si es que no sufres de gastritis.

Es por esto que hoy quiero hablarte de 5 alimentos que facilitan y producen acidez estomacal.

Cuando ingerimos estos alimentos disminuyen el tono de la válcula que separa al esófago del estómago, por lo que la comida puede pasar mucho tiempo en el estómago produciendo exceso de jugos gástricos. También hay alimentos que producen mucho ácido estomacal y causan esa sensación de ardor que es poco placentera.

Estos son los 5 alimentos que causan acidez estomacal

Los tomates

En cualquier presentación el tomate hace que el estómago produzca exceso de jugos gástricos. Cuando los volúmenes de tomate son demasiado altos, el ácido se ve forzado a fluir al esófago.

Los alimentos ácidos

El consumo de cítricos y ácidos elevan el reflujo estomacal y la ronquera. Esto incluye frutas cítricas como el limón, la naranja y el pomelo. El pH de un limón puede ser casi equivalente al ácido gástrico normal del estómago.

Lo importante al ingerir estas frutas, es tomarlas con consciencia y equilibrio.

Las bebidas carbonatadas

Antes que nada, son terribles para la salud en general por sus químicos y azúcares. Las bebidas gaseosas aumentan la presión gástrica, estirando el estómago y haciendo que el esófago quede más expuesto a los jugos gástricos de la bolsa gástrica.

Además, muchos refrescos contienen cafeína, que tienen un pH pésimo para el estómago y que genera más acidez.

El alcohol

El conocido “ratón” o “síntomas de la borrachera” siempre involucrarán al estómago. Sentir ardor en el estómago cuando se bebe alcohol es algo común, ya que relaja el estómago y no permite que se cierre bien el ducto entre el esófago y la bolsa gástrica.

Esto hace que los jugos gástricos se impulsen por tu garganta produciendo acidez.

La cebolla

A pesar de su delicioso sabor en los diversos platos, la cebolla podría causar reflujo estomacal, porque aumenta la cantidad de tiempo en el que el estómago hace la digestión, y baja el pH del mismo.

Eso hace que el estómago produzca más ácidos y los mismos generen ardor.

Otros alimentos que podrían dar acidez estomacal son los alimentos grasos (fritos), los picantes y el café.
