Misophonia

Misophonia

Misophonia is a neurophysiological condition where people have an excessively negative reaction to specific sounds, like slurping, humming, tapping, typing, or texting.

Misophonia means "hatred of sound" and people with this condition are aware of their overreaction, but can't control their reaction.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

The aversion to trigger sounds develops in childhood and tends to get worse over time.

The sounds are commonly related to the mouth, nasal sound, and hand sounds, and are more distressing if family members produce them.

Anger is the most common misophonic response, followed by anxiety or disgust.

In misophonia, people react to sounds that are not widely considered unpleasant, such as whispering or soft breathing.

Misophonics are unable to ignore annoying sounds. It seems that selective attention may be impaired in these individuals. The only option when their attention becomes fixated on a trigger sound may be fight or flight.

The condition and treatment are still in its infancy, although some evidence suggests that cognitive-behavioral therapy may help.

Sugar Detox Rules Are Vague

Those who advocate for "quitting sugar" make arbitrary rules by listing down which foods are okay to eat and the ones that they are going to avoid.

However, this then becomes a slippery slope because there's no standard to what a sugar detox entails. As time goes on, the lack of an agreed-upon definition of a sugar detox will only further misinterpretation.
