The Arabic word Eid al-Adha means “Festival of Sacrifice.” It honors Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail (Ishmael) in response to God’s instruction. According to Genesis 22:2, Abraham sacrificed his son, Isaac, according to the Jewish and Christian religions. Allah sent a lamb to sacrifice instead of Ibrahim’s son before he could sacrifice his son. Animals are sacrificed ritually to honor this intervention. The family offering the sacrifice consumes one-third of the meat, while the rest is distributed to the poor and needy. However, instead of remembering the sacrifice of father and son, people just recall eating meat. People who have heart problems or diabetes are more likely to overeat.
As a result of feasting during Eid-al-Adha, some people get cholesterol and stomach problems, and tiredness is prevalent. Corn silk is an effective treatment for these issues, even in diabetic patients.
We must look after our health.
“Health is a condition of entire physical, mental, and social well-being; it is more than the absence of disease or weakness.” Healthy living should be a daily priority for us. A healthy lifestyle can help you avoid chronic diseases and long-term ailments.
Experts advise those with cardiovascular illness, heart failure, or hypertension to eat carefully during Eid al-Adha.
During Eid al-Adha, people with diabetes and gastroenterological illnesses should limit their food intake.
“Those with chronic illnesses should avoid big meals and stick to nutritional guidelines. Because even a fatty dish can affect cardiovascular health,” said Regayip Zehir, a researcher at Istanbul’s University of Health Sciences.
