3 D’s to Better Health

3 D’s to Better Health

We are living in times where information on the importance of your health is all around you.  If you’ve been connected to Providence, you are aware that we encourage women to be proactive in choosing the best health options, with the annual well woman checkup to take priority in this call to action. Between your visits, there are actions you can take that compliment your medical care that only requires your presence and just a few things that you may have hanging around the house.  Let’s explore the simple D’s to better health that will help you along the way…. Declutter   Decluttering is an experience that has many layers.  Starting with the physical layer of decluttering a home, office, car, closet, etc, removing and organizing items opens space and clears the area to allow energy to move freely in the space.  This opening is very important for your oxygen intake and to rid stagnant energy that has been trapped in areas due to clutter. Free flowing areas allow positive energy to enter your space. Decluttering can also act as an emotional experience.  As we rid of things unwanted and no longer needed, we are also eliminating stagnant energy in our own bodies and energy fields.  This experience can be freedom from stagnant and trapped emotions that affect your overall health. Detox   Detoxing is a great way to reset the body for the nutrients it needs.  Detoxing is necessary to cleanse the body of toxins that aren’t necessarily removed organically through extractors like sweat, feces, urine and breathing, even if you have a healthy diet.

5 Easy Ways to Choose Wellness for the Holidays

Someone once said, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”  It is for many, but it also can be the most stressful time of the year.  With holiday parties, hosting family, being in charge of meals, shopping, wrapping gifts, etc, there can be a lot on your plate.  Thing is, it’s not replaced by anything you do on a daily basis. These tasks are compounded stresses atop normal daily activities.  If you feel like screaming your head off and trying to find a way to de-stress, here are some simple tips to follow that can take the edge off of the emotional stress and literally help to back away from the edge of the cliff…. Drink Lots of Water Most illnesses begin with dehydration.  Headaches, cramps, muscles spasms and many more stress triggers all have the possibility to be avoided by hydrating yourself.  Hydration is key to wellness and is, in fact, one of the most important factors of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A few ways to stay hydrated is: Take your water with you wherever you go in a water bottle or travel mug. Schedule your drinking times on your calendar as reminders to take a sip. Sip on water throughout the day instead of chugging a lug to catch up on the water you missed during the day. Eat lots of fruits and veggies that have very high water content. These are just a few short tips that are easy to remember and are sure to keep you hydrated for wellness. Get Adequate Sleep Some say that 6-8 hours is best.  I say do what your...
5 Common Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids – Suggested Treatment

5 Common Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids – Suggested Treatment

Uterine Fibroids are benign growths that are actually an overgrowth of the normal muscle tissue of the uterus. These growths are not cancerous. They are not going to cause any long-term significant health concerns in terms of life or death. However, this cancerous type problem can cause a lot of very difficult symptoms that can be really challenging for your quality of life and on a day-to-day or monthly basis when you have your period. Studies show that uterine fibroids affects about 20% of women and increases to 30% in African American women. The good news, uterine fibroids treatment is available; more on this later.  Here are five symptoms to watch out for that could determine whether or not uterine fibroids is affecting you: Heavy Bleeding During Period – increased usage of pads and/or tampons to more than 10 times a day. Lots of Cramping – occurs during period cycle. Increased Urination Frequency – occurs when fibroids are pressing against the bladder. Constipation – occurs when fibroids cause resistance to bowel flow. Growth in Lower Abdomen – occurs when fibroids have distended (swelling) your abdominal cavity. Complications from fibroids can vary depending on where you are in your stage of life. Anemia can occur from heavy bleeding that causes low blood count. A symptom is extreme fatigue due to lack of blood flow. If you are taking over the counter medications, like Advil, Tylenol, etc to relieve pain, more serious complications with your heart and stomach can occur. At Providence, we have treated hundreds of uterine fibroid cases to help women improve their quality of life. Our philosophy is...
