Weekly Health Tips
10-15-18...Fall brings cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and football games. It also means another flu season is upon us. Flu viruses infect the nose, throat, and lungs and can cause a wide range of complications. Flu vaccination can help keep you from getting sick from flu. Protecting yourself from flu also helps protect the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness. CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
10-16-18...Have regular health checkups. Preventive care is essential to maintain your health. Your health must be checked regularly every year and opt for annual dental check ups to prevent teeth issues and gum problems in kids or to minimize the risks associated with it.
10-17-18...Calcium is a mineral that keeps our bones and teeth strong and healthy. We get calcium from dairy foods such as milk, yogurt, and cheese; green veggies like broccoli, spinach, cabbage, and kale; fish with small bones like sardines and salmon; and nuts like almonds and brazil nuts.
10-18-18...Skipping breakfast can raise your blood sugar, which increases fat storage. Incorporate at least five servings of fruits and vegetables into your diet per day. These foods, which are low in calories and high in nutrients, help with weight control. Choose lean meats like fish and turkey.
10-19-18...Insufficient sleep can trigger a variety of problems. Aside from feeling tired and sluggish, you may also feel irritable and moody if you don’t get enough sleep. What’s more, poor sleep quality may be responsible for high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, and it can also lower your life expectancy. The recommended hours of sleep for ages 6-13 is 9-11 hours. For teenagers, age 14-17, eight to ten hours of sleep is recommended. Seven to nine hours is recommended for ages 18 and older.
