Mindful Eating & Good Nutrition

A healthy diet helps maintain a healthy body. Unfortunately, many of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what and how we eat. Mindful eating is a strategy that can help you improve your overall health by improving your nutrition.

Heart Health

Heart disease is extremely common. It is the leading cause of death in men and women and in people of most racial groups. About 647,000 Americans die from heart disease each year. That’s one in every four deaths.

Bariatric Surgery

Not every overweight person is a good candidate for weight loss surgery, but that surgery is truly life-changing for many patients. New advances have improved success rates and offer real hope for obese patients who have not had success with diet, exercise and behavior modification.

Holiday Stress

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 43.8 million Americans experience mental illness in a given year, and depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Unfortunately, the holiday season can intensify depression and stress for many people.

Hospice

Nearly 1.4 million Americans with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospices each year. Hospice is a broad spectrum of high-quality care provided by a team of compassionate professionals who help a patient focus on living, rather than dying.

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women in the United States, behind only skin cancer. It can occur in men and women, but it is much more common in women.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common type of heart arrhythmia. It is an irregular heartbeat that can occur in brief episodes or become a permanent condition.

Youth Sports

All physical activity comes with some inherent risk of injury, but the benefits generally outweigh the risks for most of us.
 

Women's Health

If you believe the stereotype, women are more concerned about their health and visit the doctor more than men. That’s not necessarily true.
 

Springtime Allergies

Spring is the time of year when many of us suffer from seasonal allergies.  You shouldn’t ignore them. Treating your symptoms may help you avoid more serious problems.
