Get Healthy, Stay Healthy in the New Year

So, it's a New Year, which traditionally means it's time for a fresh start. This year, why not make a resolution to improve your health? It's time to start the self-improvement plans we've been putting off for so long. Following these ten tips will increase your chances of living longer and more fully, and greatly reduce your risk of developing many chronic and infectious diseases.

1. QUIT SMOKING/CHEWING.

Everyone knows that smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. However, smoking not only increases the risk of not only lung cancer, but also adult leukemia, pancreatic cancer, hearing loss, rheumatoid arthritis, cataracts, cervical cancers, infertility, heart disease, diabetes, and several other disorders. Chewing tobacco can cause oral cancers and dental loss.

2. DRINK IN MODERATION . . . OR NOT AT ALL.

Evidence is mixed as to whether it is better to drink small amounts of alcohol or abstain completely. But more than moderate intake is associated with liver and heart disease, cancers, pancreatitis, alcohol-related birth defects, interpersonal problems and driving accidents.

3. MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT.

According to the NIH, obesity is associated with hypertension, lipid disorders, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and respiratory problems, and certain cancers. Low body weight can predispose to osteoporosis.

4. IMPROVE YOUR DIET.

Most Americans eat too few fruits and vegetables and too much fat and salt. Try slowly changing to a organic/whole food diet that includes more fruits and vegetables. The DASH diet, which emphasizes fruits and vegetables, low-fat meats and dairy and whole grains, has been shown to reduce high blood pressure. When combined with a reduction in salt intake, the results were even more dramatic.

5. EXERCISE.

Lack of regular exercise increases the risk of dying prematurely and developing several chronic illnesses. Yet, statistics reveal that more than 60 percent of American adults are not regularly active, and 25 percent of the adult population is not active at all. Exercising moderately daily (like walking more) and/or exercising more intensively 3-4 times a week has been proven to reduce these risks.

6. SET REALISTIC BUDGET AND GOALS.

Keep monthly records of your spending and living expenses so you'll spot places where you can save. Do you want to own a home? Save for retirement? Start a college fund for your kids? Write down your goals and create a plan to achieve them. Living within your means can reduce financial stress, especially after the holiday season.

7. CONTROL BLOOD PRESSURE AND CHOLESTEROL.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. Know what your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers are and keep them under control, by following the above suggestions and by taking medications if prescribed.

8. PERFORM RECOMMENDED MONTHLY SCREENINGS.

Ladies, this means performing monthly breast self exams. Gentlemen, perform monthly testicular exams. Both exams have been shown to uncover early cancers. Cancers are more curable when discovered early.

9. GET A GRIP ON STRESS.

Chronic stress is known to reduce immune response. Practice stress management techniques, get enough sleep . . . and remember to laugh a little. Conversely, while not conclusively proven, laughter seems to stimulate the immune system. It also appears to release endorphins, reducing pain. It's free, easy, and fun!

10. CONNECT WITH PEOPLE.

The more relationships and love in your life, the healthier, happier and longer you will live.

Testimonial

I slipped on ice in December, landing hard on my behind. I was in excruciating pain and could barely move. It was a Saturday night but I called the office and left a message (new patient, too, found them on Google.) I received a call back first thing Monday morning, they got me right in that day, and I just completed my 3- month treatment plan. I feel so much better and am happy to have found Dr. Ide and his staff.

Dr. Ide and his staff are awesome. I had all but given up and I saw his ad. I am s happy to be out of partial pain and I have only gone twice, I cannot wait for the end results. Just to be pain free. Dr. Ide, I thank you so much.

Dr. Ide and his staff have given me my life back. The day I called to make my first appointment I had been suffering from a migraine and severe neck pain for 6 days. This was also after receiving multiple pain injections from my primary physician with no relief. His staff not only verified my insurance was accepted at this location before even offering me an appointment time (which multiple offices will not do this) over the phone but I was able to make an appointment for the same day. Dr. Ide took the time to obtain pertinent patient history and not only explain but he also showed me on my x-rays why I was experiencing pain. He addressed the root of the problem instead of pushing prescriptions to subside your symptoms. HE discussed my POA in detail and reiterated why finishing therapy and continuing home therapy was important. I was hesitant and nervous about my first adjustment but again, he took the time to walk me through each step. Paired with my weekly adjustments I also receive massage therapy. Monica, the massage therapist is incredible. She takes the time to ask specific questions before the massage to ensure she provides the best care possible. Kasey, Dr. Ide's assistant is extremely personable and continues to make sure you feel comfortable throughout your visit. The front staff also provides a warm and welcoming environment. Within my first month of treatment, I'm able to go das without a headache now and I have reduced the frequency of my pain medication. I highly recommend Dr. Ide and his staff!

Very friendly staff and knowledgeable doctor! After doing a 3 month program, I no longer have daily headaches, back pain or neck pain. Most doctor's adjust your back and send you on your way - Dr. Ide makes sure to turn it into a lifestyle change by improving your posture and fixing any issues you may have. I would definitely recommend him over any chiropractor.

I always have good service and leave feeling good! The people are nice and all know my name. I really like how they do business for senior citizens... that's a big plus!

Very extensive in the examination. Not like other chiropractors I'd seen who just do a quick adjustment. They diagnosed the problem and are working to correct it with me. They have even went so far as to work out payment arguments for the things my insurance wouldn't cover.

I had neck and shoulder pain since 2010. Ever since I started going to him I have felt better and better!

I had ankle problems all my life in my left foot. Dr. Ide adjusted my ankle for me and within one adjustment my ankle felt the best ever. Thanks Dr. Ide!
