Learn How to Advocate Your Loved Ones Medical Needs

If you have a loved one in urgent care, or are now experiencing serious ill-health issues yourself, it would be wise to ensure a family member or significant other advocates on your behalf should health further deteriorate. I know, the typical patient expectation is that the medical staff knows best. But even under the best case scenarios, vitals will not tell staff the entire medical history of a complex ill-health condition(s)… And this becomes even truer if the patient’s primary care physician is not available for an immediate consultation with medical emergency staff. This is a “how to” become a loved one’s patient advocate for the best health services possible when needed. Continue reading

Ill-Health Prevention Starts with Healthy Feet

When I went into the military; during my physical examination the examining physician said, “You have another 5miles left on those feet,” he laughed a little with me [I had no idea what he meant-only to be enlightened 30 years later by a number of orthopedic surgeons] and sent me on my way to the next exam station.

Improve Fitness After Rehabilitation

All too often, those with limited movement and pain begin to move even less when disability and supplemental services are provided. This level of comfort somehow nestles within many to sit around further disabling themselves. To develop a habit of less activity when one should be attempting to increase activity, “especially if one can walk” is detrimental and a contradiction to overall fit-healthy goals.
