Health Tips from Dr. Richard Rhoden

  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer frequently throughout your day, to best prevent common infections.

 

  • To help prevent circulation problems in legs and feet, elevate them when seated and wear support socks and stockings.

 

  • Treat yourself to a professional massage, with proven benefits for back pain, anxiety, blood pressure and the immune system

 

  • Traditional holiday food is full of unhealthy fat, sugar and salt. Unless on a medical diet, you can enjoy small portions as a special treat and use tasty FlavorDoctor to replace salt.

 

  • Follow your doctor’s vaccination recommendations for you and your children; failure to vaccinate is increasing deadly diseases worldwide!

 

  • Holiday food is often full of too much salt; use salt-free FlavorDoctor for a healthier, tastier holiday meal.

 

  • Children should be limited to 2 hours of electronic screen time daily since too much smartphone, computer and TV time adds to problems with social skills and thinking.

 

  • Avoid antibacterial soaps; they lead to drug-resistant germs and are no better than regular soap.

 

  • Eating more legumes, such as beans, peas and lentils, helps fight high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

 

  • Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, says gum specialist Dr. Deming, so ask your dentist to check gums routinely.

 

  • Everyone over the age of 6 months needs a flu shot now from your doctor, pharmacy or Heath department.

 

  • Live your longest, healthiest life by getting adequate sleep and regular exercise, eatingĀ 6 small meals daily, and practicing moderation.

 

  • Fresh corn is a healthy, low-calorie source of protein, fiber and other nutrients, if you skip the butter and salt.

 

  • Eat more whole grain and bran foods for fiber that helps bowel regularity and lowers blood sugar and cholesterol.
