Patient Review Highlights
BEST THING OF HIS PART OF TREATING IS TALKING VERY SWEETLY& FRIENDLY BEHAVIOUR AND HAVING THE LOWEST FEE
Looking for the path toward a healthier you? it's not hard to find. The journey begins with some simple tweaks to your lifestyle. The right diet, exercise, and stress-relief plan all play a big role.
Follow a heart-healthy diet
There's an easy recipe if your goal is to keep away problems like heart disease and strokes.
Eat more fruits and veggies.
Choose whole grains. Try brown rice instead of white. Switch to whole wheat pasta.
Choose lean proteins like poultry, fish, beans, and legumes.
Cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, and saturated fat.
When eating healthy, flexibility often works best, says joyce meng, md, assistant professor at the pat and jim calhoun cardiology center at uconn health. If you like to follow a strict diet plan, go for it. If not, it's ok" find what works for you"
Stroke survivors may develop seizures
Tricia montgomery, 52, the founder of k9 fit club, knows first-hand how the right diet and lifestyle can help. For her, choosing healthy foods and planning small, frequent meals works well" I don't deny myself anything" she says" I still have dessert -- key lime pie, yum! -- and I love frozen gummy bears, but moderation is key"
Exercise every day
The more active you are, the better, meng says. Exercise boosts your heart health, builds muscle and bone strength, and wards off health problems.
Aim for 2 and a half hours of moderate activity, like brisk walking or dancing, every week. If you're ok with vigorous exercise, stick to 1 hour and 15 minutes a week of things like running or playing tennis. Add a couple of days of strength training, too.
If you're busy, try short bursts of activity throughout the day. Walk often. A good target is 10, 000 steps a day. Take the stairs. Park your car far away from your destination.
Women's health tips for heart, mind, and body
Montgomery exercises every day, often with her dog. By adding lunges, squats, and stairs to a walk, she turns it into a power workout" I also am a huge pilates fan" she says.
When you shed pounds you'll lower your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
Aim for a slow, steady drop. Try to lose 1-2 pounds a week by being active and eating better.
" it doesn't have to be an hour of intense exercise every day" meng says" any little bit helps"
As you improve, dial up the time and how hard you work out. If you want to lose a lot of weight, try for 300 minutes of exercise a week.
" eating a healthy diet will go a long way" meng says. Start by cutting sugar, which she says is often hiding in plain sight -- in store-bought items like salad dressing, packaged bread, and nuts. Try to avoid soda and sugar-laced coffee drinks, too.
Visit your doctor
Get regular checkups. Your doctor keeps track of your medical history and can help you stay healthy. For example, if you're at risk for osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones, he may want you to get more calcium and vitamin d.
Your doctor may recommend screening tests to keep an eye on your health and catch conditions early when they're easier to treat.
Keep the lines of communication open" if you have questions, ask your doctor" meng says" make sure you understand things to your satisfaction" if you're worried about a medication or procedure, talk to him about it.
Cut down your stress
It can take a toll on your health. You probably can't avoid it altogether, but you can find ways to ease the impact. Don't take on too much. Try to set limits with yourself and others. It's ok to say no.
To relieve stress, try:
Talking to a friend, family member, or professional counselor
Create healthy habits
If you make the right choices today, you can ward off problems tomorrow.
Brush your teeth twice a day and floss every day.
Limit your alcohol. Keep it to one drink a day.
Simple, effective oral health tips
According to the world health organization (who) oral health is a state of being free from chronic mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral sores, birth defects such as cleft lip and palate, periodontal disease, tooth decay and tooth loss, and other diseases and disorders that affect the oral cavity"
Follow the tips below to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Brush your teeth regularly. The main cause of tooth decay is plaque, a film of bacteria that clings to the teeth and gums. Cleaning after meals will help to get rid of it and also reduce stains.
Floss regularly. Using a gentle back-and-forth motion, pass the floss between two teeth. At the gumline, curve the floss in a c-shape against one tooth, then scrape downward on the upper teeth, upward on the lower teeth.
Consider investing in an electric toothbrush. Although it costs more, over time it is more effective than a regular toothbrush in removing plaque from your teeth.
Gargle regularly with cold black tea. The tannin in tea acts as an astringent, strengthening gums.
Massage your gums. Using your fingertip or a patented rubber gum massager (available from chemists) gently massage your gums in small circular movements several times a week to improve circulation and boost oral health.
Add 2 drops tea-tree oil to water to make a powerful antiseptic gargle (but make sure you don't swallow it). Or try gargling with salt, a general antiseptic. Salty water also soothes a sore throat.
To help reduce inflammation and fight plaque, stir 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel into warm water and gargle.
Treat a mouth ulcer by rinsing your mouth out with a solution of 1 teaspoon 3 per cent hydrogen peroxide in 50 ml water. This will disinfect your mouth, clean up bacteria and speed healing. Finally, to put a protective coating on the ulcer, dab it with vegetable glycerine.
For bleeding gums, gargle with 1 teaspoon witch hazel in 50 ml water. Alternatively, use 1 cup warm water with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 6 drops goldenseal tincture.
