An Apple A Day

Does An Apple A Day Keep The Doctor Away?

We have all heard the expression, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Is there some degree of truth to it? Apples are loaded with antioxidants which are very beneficial to our health. Antioxidants guard against cell damage and provide protection against several diseases; diabetes, asthma, and lung cancer. Apples contain more antioxidants than any other fruit. A recent study conducted by Cornell University concludes that by eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables might be a significant factor in reducing the risk of developing brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. A single apple contains the same antioxidant properties as 1500 milligrams of vitamin C, and researchers agree that the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables are better than those available insupplements.

Drink More Water For Health

Drink More Water To Improve Your Health

Most people are in the low range of fluid consumption and are not hydrating properly. Everyone generally drinks at mealtime, but in between many do not drink anything. You need to consistently drink water throughout the day. There are many formulas for how much to drink but don’t worry about the details just drink! When you get up in the morning one of the first things to do is drink a glass of water. Here are a few reasons to drink more water:

·Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids: Your body is composed of about 60% water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.

·Water Helps Energize Muscles: Cells that don’t maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytesshrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue. When muscle cells don’t have adequate fluids, they don’t work as well.

·Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good: Your skin contains plenty of water, and functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss.

·Water Helps Your Kidneys: Body fluids transport waste products in and out of cells. Your kidneys do an amazing job of cleansing and ridding your body of toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate.

·Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function. Adequate hydration keeps things flowing along your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation.

Posture Tips

How do I sit properly?

Keep your feet on the floor or on a footrest, if they don’t reach the floor.

Don’t cross your legs. Your ankles should be in front of your knees.

Keep a small gap between the back of your knees and the front of your seat.

Your knees should be at or below the level of your hips.

Adjust the backrest of your chair to support your low- and mid-back or use a back support.

Relax your shoulders and keep your forearms parallel to the ground.

Avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time.

How do I stand properly?

Bear your weight primarily on the balls of your feet.

Keep your knees slightly bent.

Keep your feet about shoulder-width apart.

Let your arms hang naturally down the sides of the body.

Stand straight and tall with your shoulders pulled backward.

Tuck your stomach in.

Keep your head level-your earlobes should be in line with your shoulders. Do not push your head forward, backward, or to the side.

Shift your weight from your toes to your heels, or one foot to the other, if you have to stand for a long time.

What is the proper lying position?

Find the mattress that is right for you. While a firm mattress is generally recommended, some people find that softer mattresses reduce their back pain. Your comfort is important.

Sleep with a pillow. Special pillows are available to help with postural problems resulting from a poor sleeping position.

Avoid sleeping on your stomach.

Sleeping on your side or back is more often helpful for back pain. If you sleep on your side, place a pillow between your legs. If you sleep on your back, keep a pillow under your knees.
