The Changing Face of Heart Attack Care

Weekly Wellness Tip by Fit For You – Moving Side to Side & Dry Poaching Chicken

unnamed-2Weekly Wellness Tip

Moving Side-to-Side
When exercising you commonly move from front to back, but how much thought do you give to moving side-to-side? Moving side-to-side is a lateral movement that engages your hip abductor muscles.

These muscles help you walk, run, play sports, balance on one foot, dance, get into and out of a car and get onto and off a bicycle. Bottom line, they improve functional fitness, enhance core stability and prevent injuries.

Exercises that strengthen your hip abductor muscles include side-lying leg raises, standing side leg raises, side step-ups, balancing on one leg, and side steps with or without a resistance band.

muscle-vs-fatA Pound of Muscle vs A Pound of Fat

When it comes to a pound of muscle versus a pound of body fat, myths abound. Muscle is more metabolically active than fat, meaning it burns more calories when you are at rest, but the level of this activity often is overstated.

FAST: Stroke Signs and Symptoms

Timing is critical during a stroke. There is a four and one-half hour window of time after the onset of stroke symptoms in which intravenous drugs can be administered to dissolve a blood clot and restore blood flow to the brain.

FAST is an easy way to remember the sudden signs of stroke. When you can spot the signs, call 911 right away.

Face Drooping

Arm Weakness

Speech Difficulty

Time to Call 911

Weekly Wellness Tip – Listen To Your Gut – Your Second Brain

unnamed-1

Listen To Your Gut – Your Second Brain
Scientists are now referring to our gut as our second brain or the enteric nervous system (ENS).

The ENS consist of more than 100 million nerve cells lining our GI tract. While the ENS doesn’t seem capable of thought as we know it, researchers are finding that it communicates back and forth with our big brain – with profound results. These results are revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way you think.

Listen to your gut. Your nervous system and your gut may be wired to react to certain foods, and you may feel better if you avoid them. If you have ever come back after lunch and felt tired, nauseous, or a little “fuzzy”, your ENS system may be reacting to something you ate – and sending signals to your brain.

Recipe of the Week:

You can easily modify this Crisp Asian Salmon with Bok Choy and Rice Noodles recipe by using another fish – halibut or grouper, or skip the fish and add cooked chopped chicken or tofu to the broth. Click for recipe.
