General Health Information

When it comes to health it is important to see a doctor on a regular basis. Routine checks for various cancers such as prostate, colon, skin and breast cancer can mean the difference between life and death. It has been proven that early detection of cancer as well as other health concerns allows for quick treatment which might have otherwise resulted in death. General practitioners should check for abnormal cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure. A simple blood test could save your life.


Nutrition and Eating Well

A nutritional and well balanced diet is important to maintain proper body weight and provide the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function properly. There is a lot to be said for the old saying "You are what you eat." The most recent studies say to: reduce your red meat intake, moderate your drinking of alcohol, don't smoke and get exercise on a regular basis. Exercising doesn't have to be extreme. Your workout should include cardiovascular exercise which increases your heart rate for at least 20 minutes. A brisk 20 minute walk 3 or 4 days a week will help you to maintain a reasonable body weight.
