Balancing Diet, Physical Activity Key To Combating Obesity Epidemic

Submitted by Matt Raymond

New Article Makes Recommendations for Public Health Strategies

joggerIs it possible for experts from the leading nutrition and sport medicine professional organizations to come to consensus on how to strategically address obesity? The answer can be found in a peer-reviewed paper, Energy Balance at a Crossroads: Translating the Science into Action, which provides specific recommendations for biological, lifestyle and environmental changes that will successfully guide children and families toward healthier weights.

The paper, published jointly in the July editions of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® and in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, outlines steps to incorporate energy balance principles into public health strategies.

The recommendations include:

* Integrate energy balance into curriculum and training for both exercise science and nutrition professionals and strengthen collaborative efforts between them.

* Develop competencies for school and physical education teachers and position them as energy balance advocates.

* Develop core standards for schools that integrate the dynamic energy balance approach.

* Work with federally funded nutrition programs like the Cooperative Extension Service and school lunch programs to incorporate energy balance solutions.

* Develop messaging and promotional strategies about energy balance that American consumers can understand and apply to their lifestyles.

* Map out and support existing programs that emphasize energy balance.

“We have been discussing and analyzing the obesity epidemic for years. I am ecstatic to see actionable steps toward realistic solutions,” said Marianne Smith Edge, MS, RD, LD, FADA, the IFIC Foundation’s senior vice president of nutrition and food safety and co-author of the paper.

“Addressing obesity prevention through sharing best practices with consumers and community leaders, in addition to undergraduate and graduate level training, is a comprehensive approach that works.”

The paper is an outcome of the October 2012 expert panel meeting titled “Energy Balance at the Crossroads: Translating the Science into Action,” hosted by ACSM, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)/Agriculture Research Service.

The IFIC Foundation, along with ILSI North America, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the American College of Sports Medicine, held a webinar for health professionals Aug. 28 on the same subject as the paper; it can be viewed here.

How To Identify Signs Of High Cholesterol And Lower Cholesterol Naturally

healthywordsAccording to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in every six Americans has high cholesterol. New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author, Sanjay Jain, M.D. MBA explains how to identify signs of high cholesterol and reduce cholesterol levels without the use of expensive medications.

Recent statistics from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention show that 17% of Americans–one out of every six adults–have high levels of cholesterol. While this is a serious condition, affecting millions of people, too many individuals don’t take action and try to lower their cholesterol levels because there are few outward signs and symptoms that easily identify the problem. Sadly, for many people, it’s only after they suffer a heart attack or stroke that they find out that they have high cholesterol. New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author, Sanjay Jain, M.D. MBA has recently published a video on how to identify signs of high cholesterol and reduce cholesterol levels without the use of expensive medications.

WebMD says that some people may notice bumps, from a build up of fat and cholesterol, on their hands, skin or feet. Other than that there are no outward ways to identify high cholesterol. People with certain risk factors, including eating a poor diet, being overweight, being inactive, smoking, taking certain medications, age, having diabetes or a family history of cholesterol, should keep a close eye on their cholesterol levels.

Starting at age 20, Mayo Clinic recommends that adults have their cholesterol checked every five years unless the doctor says otherwise. People who are at a higher risk for elevated cholesterol levels should take measures to lower their LDL (“good”) cholesterol and raise their HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

While many medical professionals advocate the use of prescription medications to lower cholesterol, there are natural options for individuals who prefer to take a more holistic approach to their health. Adjusting one’s diet and lifestyle can go a long way in reducing cholesterol levels or preventing them from getting too high.

Some foods which aid in lowering cholesterol include:

* Avocado and avocado oil- Enjoy chopped avocado pieces on a salad, or stir fry vegetables in avocado oil.

* Dark chocolate- Sprinkle dark cocoa powder on coffee for a guilt-free indulgence.

* Wine- A small glass after dinner assists in lowering LDL levels and provides antioxidants.

* Nuts- Have a handful as a snack, or sprinkle on oatmeal and salads.

* Salmon, Tuna, Halibut- Broil or bake un-breaded fish filets for a wholesome, filling meal with plenty of hearty-healthy fats.

* Apples- Grandma was right; an apple a day can keep the doctor away. Apples, and pears, have pectin which is a type of fiber that assists in lowering cholesterol.

fruits-and-vegetablesFor work lunches, try swapping out low-quality fast food meals for homemade salads and fresh fruit. Walk, and take the stairs, whenever possible to be more active. Buy a fitness DVD to do in the early mornings or evenings to help lose weight. None of these activities require much time or money, but they will all help people live longer, healthier lives and spend less on health care.

To make long term lifestyle changes, it’s important to make the changes gradually. Start with one change a week, adding a new one while maintaining previous ones. It’s only natural to make mistakes and slip-up from time to time; recognize the mistake and jump back on the path to better health. Over time, these changes become second nature.

How To Prevent Colds And Flu

By Kac Young PhD, ND, DCH

doctorThe number one tip for helping to prevent catching a cold or the flu this season is to wash your hands. But it isn’t just a fast and casual pass through running water. There’s an art to washing your hands to ward off the bacteria and viruses that cause colds and flu.

· Use warm water.

· Use real soap.

· Sing Happy Birthday to yourself to achieve a full 20 second washing.

· Rinse thoroughly.

· Dry.

· Do this 20-30 times a day.

The second tip is to be aware that germs and bugs pass easily from person to person.

· Avoid touching door knobs, handles, faucets, pens or styluses used for signing credit card or debit purchases, electronic bank machines, car doors and public railings.

· Keep your hands away from your face, lips, eyes and nose.

· Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer and use it before eating food snacks or sipping on a bottle of water or soft drink.

· Carry your own pen to use for writing and signing papers, credit card slips and keep yours rubbed down with alcohol every day.

Sound like too much trouble? Not if you want to save yourself from two weeks of misery, losing productive time and being under the weather. Stay on top of it and get through the winter cold and flu free.

Outdoor Party Safety Tips For Kids

By Sheena Williams

kidsjumpingThere is a lot to plan for the kids on their vacation, where countless games and outdoor activities bring the best of fun and enjoyment to their vacations. From jumping and tumbling up to going for an exciting beach party, kids are always willing to take part in activities that help them to gather some of the most memorable moments.

Capture those exciting moments, make it more playable for them by involving in the games they like, let them draw a beautiful scenery on the sand or just jump all day long with them on the home trampoline but don’t forget that besides everything your kids are always in need of an extra care for things they don’t know. Let us now quickly get into knowing about the basic outdoor party safety tips for kids.

Absolute supervision is essentially important

• While playing with your kids on the beach or in the pool, always remember that you should have a clear eye on what they are doing. Recent research shows that most of the kids losing lives while playing on the beach are considered to be a victim of drowning.

• Drowning is one of the most prominent dangers considered taking lives of hundreds of kids every year in the United States. As it happens in just a matter of a few moments, it is essentially important for you to always stay near them and be a wise water watcher for your kids.

Follow the basic guidelines and gear up with the safety accessories

• Make sure that you follow basic precautions that help avoid chances of drowning such as;

— Feeling enough confident in your kids’ swimming skills is one of the biggest mistakes.

— Try guiding them about the extent they should go in the water and outline limits to the games they play.

— Never leave your younger kids to operate the watercrafts alone.

— Make them understand not to jump, push or fall back on others while playing in the water.

— Always outfit your kids with life jackets.

Sun is the biggest enemy

• Either they play on the beach or on the home trampoline; if kids are directly exposed to the sun; circumstances are equally vulnerable.

• Global climate changes have resulted in direct exposure to the hazardous UV rays coming from the sun.

• UV rays don’t just cause sunburn and extra aches but several long term vulnerabilities.

— Try setting up your home trampoline in a place with less exposure to direct sunlight.

— Using sunscreen becomes vitally important.

— Most of the experts recommend applying sunscreen after every 20 minutes if your kids are playing on the beach.

— Affirmatively, while playing in the water, kids should apply waterproof sunscreen.
Dehydration is not just alarming but crucial for kids

— While jumping and tumbling all day long, kids fully indulge in the game. Making sure they take sufficient amount of water throughout the day delivers greater prevention from dehydration.

— Taking energy drinks such as Gatorade etc. are the best possible sources of instantly gaining an adequate amount of carbohydrates into the body and rapidly re-hydrates the body.

Boost Your Energy, Naturally And Deliciously

By Kac Young PhD, ND, DCH

stresssleepingIf you’re feeling tired and lacking energy there are two things to consider. Is it chronic or is it temporary? If you have chronic low energy, you should see you doctor because something else might need attention such as your adrenals or thyroid. If you have times when you’re feeling worn out and exhausted from the have-to’s of life, then you might want to consider these three natural kickstarters that can help you feel more alive and have more energy.

Kickstarter #1: Lemons and oranges.

Did you know that vitamin C helps the cells transport and utilize fatty acids thus amping up your energy level? The vitamin C in citrus fruits can speed up the fat burning process and help you feel more energized. Add 3-4 thin slices of lemon or orange to your water to get that boost of Vitamin C and to help use fats as energy. It may also aid in weight loss.

Kickstarter #2: Cucumbers

The natural diuretic effects of cucumbers contain potassium and vitamins A and C which flush out toxins and keep your metabolism moving. Add 6-8 slices of cucumber to a pitcher of spring water and drink this all day long for a vital cool, refreshing drink.

Kickstarter #3: Cayenne Pepper

Research has shown that the capsaicin found in cayenne pepper can boost your metabolism shortly after ingesting it and make you feel fuller. While spicy water may not sound inviting, you might want to give it a chance before rejecting the whole idea. Mix slice strawberries, blueberries, and just half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper into your water. You’ll have a surprisingly sweet, calorie-melting pick-me-up with just little bit of kick. A touch of lime is also divine.

You can usually always find bottled water so a hint I like to include is to take a container of citrus slices, cucumber slices and the makings for the cayenne kickstarter with you, so you’ll always have a supply of natural helpers with you when you need them most. This helps you stay away from sweet snacks, sugars and saturated fats when you want a healthy energy lift.

Correlation Between Blood Pressure Stress Response And Underwater Treadmill Training

informationredDuring their scientific investigation of blood pressure as it relates to stress during exercise on an underwater treadmill, authors Lambert, et al, tracked the responses of 60 adults who worked out on either land-based treadmills or in a HydroWorx therapy pool on an underwater treadmill during very specific sessions each week.

For the estimated 67 million Americans who suffer from high blood pressure, finding natural ways to improve their condition can be challenging, especially for those who are generally sedentary. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe that only 47 percent of people who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure have it under control. Unless this figure changes considerably, the cost of health care associated with high blood pressure treatment will only continue to skyrocket as Baby Boomers follow the natural aging processes. Thankfully, a recent study released by researchers at Texas A&M University may hold the key to helping those with higher than normal blood pressure keep their numbers at a lower rate through regular activity on an underwater treadmill in a HydroWorx therapy pool.

The study, Aquatic Treadmill Training Reduces Blood Pressure Reactivity to Physical Stress, has been published in the American College of Sports Medicine’s journal, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise®. During their scientific investigation of blood pressure as it relates to stress during exercise on an underwater treadmill, Authors Lambert, et al, tracked the responses of 60 adults who worked out on either land-based treadmills or in a HydroWorx therapy pool on an underwater treadmill during very specific sessions each week. The results of the testing showed that while all endurance exercise reduces blood pressure and the body’s related stress responses, the aquatic treadmill training significantly reduced the participants’ resting diastolic blood pressure more than the land-based treadmill training did. The researchers concluded that high blood pressure brought on by stress levels could be organically reduced through regular endurance intervals on an underwater treadmill.

Says Anson Flake, Co-Founder and CEO, HydroWorx, “We have heard anecdotal evidence of people using our therapy pools as a way to lower their blood pressure for years. Now, Texas A&M has put solid numbers to those claims. The science proves what we have always thought: Our products provide a low-impact, high-results alternative to lowering responses to everyday stressors.”

The outcome of the Texas A&M study provides a great deal of encouragement for those with high blood pressure who wish to become healthier through the use of a more natural remedy than medication. Even more reassuring is the fact that the participants were not highly active in their everyday lives, revealing the potential for any person to reap the benefits of aquatic treadmill exercise regimens.

About HydroWorx

Since the late 1990s, HydroWorx—based in Middletown, PA—has manufactured aquatic therapy pools with built-in underwater treadmills to enable physical therapists to more effectively offer their patients the opportunity to increase range of motion, decrease risk of falls and joint stress, and remain motivated through the rehab process. Every day, more than 23,000 athletes and patients use HydroWorx technology to recover from injuries and health conditions. For more information, please visit http://www.hydroworx.com.

Managing Pain The First Few Days After Braces

By Dr. Nima Hajibaik

dentistWhat are the best methods of managing pain and discomfort from the application of new braces?

The application of braces can sometimes cause minor sensitivity, and discomfort for your teeth, and irritation to the lips and tongue for the first several days, but there are ways to ease into the transition.

You have scheduled your appointment and discussed the different types of braces available, and now you are ready to have them placed. Is there anything you can do to prepare beforehand? Yes, there is. Take some time to be prepared for your orthodontic braces by purchasing a few items you will need for the first few days such as:

• Salt

• Over-the-counter-pain medications like Tylenol or Ibuprofen

• Dental wax (This is also provided by your orthodontist.)

• Ice pack

• Soft foods like soup, mashed potatoes, yogurt, ice cream, etc.

• Smoothies or protein drinks

• Purchase oral hygiene implements such as toothbrush, floss, etc., as recommended by your orthodontist

Braces, day one: Take the recommended age-appropriate dose of an over-the-counter pain meds such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen 30 minutes before your visit to the orthodontist to have your braces applied. This can help to lessen any discomfort you may experience during and after you get your braces. This applies to children or to those who are having adult braces applied.

Once you get home, you can resume normal activity but you will want to stick to a soft food regime over the course of the next few days until you become adjusted to the new appliance. Taking sips of ice-cold water or eating frozen popsicles or ice cream can help to ease the discomfort. If you experience any sores on your tongue or lips, gargle with a mild salt water rinse to help heal the irritated areas.

Try to avoid citrus fruits or drinks at this time as they can cause further discomfort. Do not attempt to remove any bands or wires from your braces if they give you trouble; apply dental wax to the area to help alleviate any irritation.

After a week or so: you will become used to your new braces and they should not bother you as much. Continue to rinse with mild salt water and use your dental wax as needed. All of these tips can apply to the application of all types of dental braces. It is always a good idea to sit down and talk with a professional, your orthodontist has years of experience in this field, and will help you to make this transition as easy and painless as possible.

Health Benefits Linked To Drinking Tea

From Your Health Journal….this is an older article, but had some interesting material in it that we thought was beneficial to read about….

teaTea contains substances that have been linked to good health. Regular tea drinkers are less likely to develop diabetes and may have a lower risk of heart disease.

Tea, especially green tea, is often said to be good for your health. Tea contains substances linked to a lower risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. But keep tea’s healthy boost in perspective, says the September 2014 Harvard Men’s Health Watch.

“Tea consumption, especially green tea, may not be the magic bullet, but it can be incorporated in an overall healthy diet with whole grains, fish, fruits and vegetables, and less red and processed meat,” says Qi Sun, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

The main health-promoting substances in tea are polyphenols, in particular catechins and epicatechins. Lab and animal studies say these molecules have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Harvard-led studies of large groups of people over time have found that tea or coffee drinkers are at lower risk for diabetes and possibly cardiovascular disease. Coffee also contains polyphenols.

Now here’s the key caveat: It remains unclear whether the tea itself is the cause of these benefits and, if so, how it works its magic. The studies attempt to rule out the possibility that tea drinkers simply live healthier lifestyles, but it’s difficult to be sure. That said, tea itself appears to have no harmful effects except for a case of the jitters if you drink too much caffeinated brew. It fits in perfectly well with a heart-healthy lifestyle.

One important warning: A cup of tea contains only a couple calories. Processed, sugar-sweetened tea beverages are loaded with extra calories. “If there are any health benefits to green tea consumption, it’s probably completely offset by adding sugar,” Sun says.

Also in the September 2014 issue of the Harvard Men’s Health Watch:

* Herbs and supplements for joint support

* Who needs an antiviral booster after catching the flu?

* Tips for choosing a hearing aid

Tips On Increasing The Resale Value Of A Home With Technology

homeWhether you’re thinking of selling your home next month or next year, increasing the resale value of your house through home improvement projects is always a smart idea. Today, many home buyers aren’t looking for a home with a pool or a fancy deck; they are looking for enhanced home technology.

To help you understand how you can use smart technology to add value to your home, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) provides an overview on the most popular features on the market.

Security
According to a recent study conducted by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate (BHGRE), 48 percent of American adults, ages 18-35, reported that a security system ranks highest on their list of desired smart home features. These high-tech alarms go beyond their intended job of protecting property; they also bring comfort and convenience to everyday life.

In addition to the capabilities of a traditional alarm system, a smart security system are connects to your wireless network and can send notifications about activity within your home to your smartphone or tablet. Another added feature is the ability to monitor and secure your home remotely. Simply log into your system via a mobile app or desktop browser to view live feed from your surveillance cameras, lock the front door, arm your system and much more.

Safety
Today’s advanced smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors do more than just beep incessantly when the batteries run out; they tell you when and where trouble is lurking in your home.

New technology in smoke and CO detectors can help your family escape your home quickly by calling out the location of the affected area long before conditions become life-threatening. Additionally, advanced life safety systems can give you peace of mind by allowing you to check in on the well-being of your family when you’re not home. Best of all, you can have your smart smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors monitored by a central station around the clock so that first responders are on the way at the first sign of trouble.

Lifestyle
Lifestyle enhancing features such as a smart thermostat can also pique the interest of buyers. These devices have the ability to learn your heating and cooling preferences and adjust the temperature without you lifting a finger. But convenience isn’t the only selling point. With an advanced thermostat, you can control the temperature of your home remotely and employ power conservation settings when your home is vacant, which can reduce your heating and cooling bill – cost savings that are universally appealing to buyers.

With the demand for home automation steadily rising and the cost continuing to drop, adding value to your home with technology is a no-brainer. Visit http://www.Alarm.org to learn more about smart homes and begin creating an investment that’s sure to pay off.

Snoring: Bad For Relationships, Bad For Health

snoringIn today’s world, a good night’s sleep has become especially valuable, and increasingly difficult to get. Snoring and sleep apnea (a medical problem where the airway collapses during sleep and breathing stops) robs people and their bed partners of the rest they need to face their daily challenges.

Up to 45% of the population snores and 20 million people in the United States alone have sleep apnea. Of these, only 10% have been diagnosed and treated; and of those treated, many cannot tolerate their prescribed medical device known as CPAP (continuous positive air pressure supplied through a nasal mask) – which supports the airway during sleep.

Small, comfortable, dental mouthpieces that hold the lower jaw in a forward position have been proven to support the airway to prevent collapse, and have been approved as a primary treatment in mild to moderate sleep apnea – and, as an alternative to, or in conjunction with CPAP when needed. This treatment is called oral appliance therapy (OAT).

Snoring Isn’t Sexy® was formed to alert the public of the medical dangers and social hazards of snoring and sleep apnea, and to connect snorers and sleep apnea sufferers with a specially trained dentist in their area who can provide oral appliance therapy.

Amanda Juarez DDS, a Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist in Houston, TX provides this treatment for snoring and sleep apnea patients. Dr. Amanda Juarez has been providing expert dental care for decades. Dr. Juarez is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain.

By applying the highest protocols and latest technology of dentistry, and by always placing the welfare of patients first, her practice has functioned as a vital leader in the advancement of modern dentistry in the Houston area.

“I am fortunate to be in a profession where I can make such a positive impact on people’s lives. When a patient tells me that I helped save their marriage, helped save their life, or gave them the confidence to achieve new goals, I realize I am so privileged to be doing something so special,” says Dr. Juarez.
