JUNE IS ALZHEIMER'S AND BRAIN AWARENESS MONTH. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer’s, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer’s live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions. Although current Alzheimer’s treatments cannot stop Alzheimer’s from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Today, there is a worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, and prevent it from developing. #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness
Major League Baseball has designated June 2, 2021 as Lou Gehrig Day in order to raise awareness about ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), the disease Lou prematurely died of. ALS is a rare neurological condition that affects the nerve cells responsible for voluntary movement. ALS causes progressive muscle weakness making it increasingly difficult to walk, talk, chew, swallow, etc. The symptoms get worse over time. Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt or reverse the progression of the disease. Early symptoms include muscle cramps, muscle weakness and muscle twitches in the legs, arms, shoulders and tongue, following by difficulty chewing and swallowing. Lou Gehrig signed his first contract with the New York Yankees in April 1923. Over the next 15 years he led the team to six World Series titles and set the mark for most consecutive games played.
The lifetime risk of stroke for women between the ages of 55 and 75 in the United States is 1 in 5. Stroke kills twice as many women as breast cancer does, making stroke the third leading cause of death for women. Most strokes can be prevented by keeping medical conditions under control and making healthy lifestyle changes. Control your blood pressure and cholesterol levels with healthy lifestyle changes and take your blood pressure medicines as directed. Don’t start smoking. If you do smoke, learn how to quit. Eat healthy, get plenty of exercise and work with your healthcare team. #strokeawarenessmonth #wellness #health #healthyeating #strokeprevention
May is National Stroke Awareness Month. A stroke causes brain tissue to die, which can lead to brain damage, disability, and death. Stroke is a leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide, and is a major cause of serious disability for adults. This is disturbing because about 80% of strokes are preventable. You can greatly reduce your risk for stroke by making lifestyle changes to help control your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and, in some cases, by taking medication.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Springtime is here. Warmer weather means longer days and more time spent outdoors. A great time to plan 30 minutes of exercise for each day. Did you know that 30 minutes of moderate exercise can reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes? Daily exercise can also help you maintain a healthy weight, reduce stress, boost your mood, increase your energy levels and enhance your overall quality of life. Stay in circulation and get active for better health! #health #fitness #wellness #weightloss #healthylifestyle #exercise
According to Medical News Today, an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) may feel like a racing heart or fluttering. Many heart arrhythmias are harmless. However, if they are highly irregular or result from a weak or damaged heart, arrhythmias can cause severe and potentially fatal symptoms and complications. Arrhythmia might not cause noticeable symptoms. However, a doctor may detect an arrhythmia during a routine examination or after requesting an electrocardiogram (EKG). 6-12 million Americans suffer from some form of arrhythmia and close to 1 million are hospitalized each year. With early detection and current treatments, most people with arrhythmia conditions can lead long, healthy lives. Treatment depends on the type and seriousness of your arrhythmia. Some people with arrhythmias require no treatment. For others, treatments can include medication, making lifestyle changes, and undergoing surgical procedures.

But most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Pay attention to your body and call 911 if you experience - chest pain or discomfort in other areas of the upper body, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, as well as possible cold sweats, vomiting or dizziness/lightheadedness.

FEBRUARY IS AMERICAN HEART HEALTH MONTH! Here's a great way to start each day that will greatly benefit your heart health - OATS! We all know that OATS are a great source protein, minerals and healthy for your heart. But, did you know OATS are healthy for the heart due to their high beta-glucan content. Beta-glucan is a soluble fiber that helps reduce LDL cholesterol, reduce blood sugar and insulin response, and increase the growth of good bacteria in your digestive tract. In addition, OATS contain more than 20 unique polyphenols, AVENANTHRAMIDES, which have shown strong antioxidant activity. The polyphenols of oats have also recently been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory activity, which may provide additional protection against coronary heart disease, colon cancer, and skin irritation. I prefer STEEL CUT OATS, which are minimally processed and take a little longer to cook, but are more nutrient dense. I DON'T use sugar (add cinnamon and nutmeg instead) and pair it with blue berries and green apples or walnuts for added punch. Tastes great and your heart will be happy too! #heartdiseaseawareness #hearthealthmonth #healthyheart
