How to Prevent Diabetes

Though most of us enjoy good health, we should never take it for granted.  Always there is the fear of the unknown, something catastrophic that would take our good health away and that is the scariest notion.  Like the Zika virus for instance.  Or last year’s widespread flu epidemic since the virulent virus did not match the flu serum for the 2014-2015 flu season. But how about type 2 diabetes?  While it is not classified as an infectious or communicable disease, the incidence of adult-onset diabetes is growing at an alarming rate, even showing up in teens and children.  It is estimated that more than 29 million Americans have diabetes; unbelievably, about 8 million don’t even know they have the disease.

Healthy Eating Tips for Summer

From the Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend, sometimes it is all one big food fest, isn’t it?  There are picnics and barbeques and family get-togethers galore.  Most of these events involve potluck meals, with everyone toting along a different dish.  Of course you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, so you have to try everyone’s special dish, and before long, you feel overstuffed and want to undo your clothes. Unfortunately, some fattening picnic fare, like creamy potato or macaroni salads, not only pack on the pounds, but can be detrimental to your health, should they sit out in warm weather for too long, because then you could risk getting food poisoning.  So, to avoid getting contaminated by food spoilage in cold salads containing mayonnaise, thwart those problems and be kind to your waistline by substituting salads like three-bean, baked beans or coleslaw with a vinaigrette dressing instead. If you are planning a day at the beach, do yourself and your loved ones a favor and follow the suggestions below on the best way to transport and keep your food at the recommended chilled temperature, plus safeguard against food poisoning once the food has been cooked and served.

How Does Digestion Work?

The entire human body works in concert, with all systems being equally important to your overall health. Of course, if you’re experiencing complications due to digestive problems such as diarrhea or constipation, you likely think the gastrointestinal system is slightly more important than the others. Everyone experiences these problems at one time or another, and when it happens, it can take a huge toll even on everyday activities, let alone living with energy and vibrancy. Proper digestion is critical in order to supply everyone’s body with the nutrients needed, not just to survive, but to thrive and live an energetic life. Every food and beverage we put into our bodies needs to be broken down, properly stored, used for energy, or branded a toxin and effectively flushed out. But have you ever wondered how that happens? How does the human digestive system work in order to properly digest food and keep our bodies healthy? Here’s information from top GI doctors in Flushing about how digestion works, as well as tips on the best foods to eat in order to keep your digestive system performing optimally.

How to Keep Skin Healthy

Did you know skin is a body organ? It’s true. As a matter of fact, your skin is the largest organ in your body, and just like every other bodily organ, it needs proper care and nutrients to keep it healthy. Do you spend too much time in the sun, with your skin unprotected from UV rays? Do you forget to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water every day? Do you neglect eating 4 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day? Do you smoke or use other tobacco products? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, your skin likely isn’t as healthy as it could be, and that could mean you’re looking older than you have to. Keeping your body’s largest organ in optimal condition isn’t difficult. In fact, it can take minimal effort on your part. Following are a few tips from top dermatologists in Livingston on how to keep your skin healthy for a lifetime.
