How One Woman Spotted the Warning Signs of a Stroke 8,000 Miles Away … and Saved Her Husband’s Life
As Pawan Madahar was getting ready for work, a video call came through from his wife and kids, who were vacationing in India. He accepted the call, but he was physically unable to speak. Suspecting a poor internet connection, Pawan’s wife Veena called again. This time, she could see he was grabbing his jawbone when he was trying to speak. That’s when she realized Pawan was having a stroke. Unable to dial 911 internationally, Pawan’s family frantically enlisted the help of friends in the U.S. to contact emergency responders. “I am so grateful Veena had the insight to recognize that I was experiencing a stroke. I had no idea what was going on, and I clearly couldn’t call to ask for help myself,” he continues. Medics transported Pawan to the Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook Medical Center where Dr. Ronald Benitez, a board-certified neurosurgeon at Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists (ANS) and stroke specialist, was on call in the emergency department. Utilizing a state-of-the-art device called a stent retriever, Dr. Benitez successfully removed two life-threatening blood clots from Pawan’s brain, restoring blood flow in just 30 minutes. “With stroke patients, we’re in a race against time to restore blood and oxygen to […]
How Your Body Works By Active Healing Center
Your body is a very complex system made up of multiple systems. An infinite amount of moving parts needs to work together in balance to create a healthy, happy you. Physiology is the study of how your body works. It is the study of how all these moving parts come together and communicate with each other in order to acclimate your body to your surroundings. As complex as the physiology of your body is, there is a simplicity to it as well. Every cell, tissue, muscle, joint, organ and fiber of your body has to work harmoniously with one another and there must be one system to control it all. This system, your Central Nervous System, is made up of your brain and spinal cord. Every fiber of your body sends messages through the spinal cord to the appropriate part of your brain. Your brain, in return, sends its response back through the spinal cord to the appropriate parts of your body for the appropriate action. This happens at lightening speeds every second of your life whether you are awake or asleep. The role of your Central Nervous System is to acclimate your body to your environment. Your Central Nervous […]
Take a Walk: Spring into Better Health by Marshall P. Allegra, M.D.
Take a Walk: Spring into Better Health Walking is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health. Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. It can reduce your risk of developing conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some cancers. Unlike some other forms of exercise, walking is free and doesn’t require any special equipment or training. Physical activity does not have to be vigorous or done for long periods in order to improve your health. Even a low level of exercise – around 75 minutes per week – improves fitness levels significantly, when compared to a non-exercising group. Walking is low impact, requires minimal equipment, can be done at any time of day and can be performed at your own pace. You can get out and walk without worrying about the risks associated with some more vigorous forms of exercise. It’s also a great form of physical activity for people who are overweight, elderly, or who haven’t exercised in a long time. Health benefits of walking You carry your own body weight when you walk. This is known as weight-bearing exercise. […]
Ascending water and descending fire By Advanced PMR
Healthy life style is defined in various ways depending upon different cultures and beliefs. Cultures that have been developed in cold weather tend to focus on keeping body warm and cultures on the other spectrum focus on cooling body. Modern medicine focuses heavily on quantifiable test results to measure health and utilizes medicines and lifestyle changes to control them to desirable range. If a healthy life style reflects culture and understanding of the human body, what are the principles of a healthy lifestyle spoken in eastern medicine? Eastern medicine bases all of its theories on Yin and Yang. To be more exact, balance of yin and yang is the basic principle to promote proper bodily function. Yin and yang theory is well known theory that is fundamental to eastern medicine and philosophy. They are opposites of each other, yet complementary to each other as well. Interaction of Yin and yang creates. For example, men are considered yang and women are considered yin. Men and women complement each other very nicely, but they act as if they are from different planets. Also, interaction of men and women creates another form of life. Fire is considered yang and water is considered yin. […]

5 Core and Back Exercises for the Appearance of a Cinched Waist
Building a cinched – or smaller – waist doesn’t have to involve crazy diet pills or corsets. While certain core and cardio exercises can help you take inches off your waist line, you can build the appearance of a smaller waist by building up your hip and back muscles. By increasing the size of your shoulders, lats, and hips, while focusing on obliques for core exercises, you can begin to build an “hourglass” figure that makes your waist appear smaller. Here are some basic core and back exercises you can do to safely build the appearance of a cinched-waist. Pull ups Pull ups are one of the fastest ways to build your Latisimus Dorsi (or lat) muscles. Building your lats can give your back the ‘triangle’ appearance that represents the top half of your hourglass. If you’re not able to do a pull up, that’s okay! These exercises can help you get there in stages. You can also use the assisted pull up machine to build your lats over time. Shoulder Press Use dumbbells to perform a shoulder press, or use the shoulder press machine to build strong, toned shoulders. Choose a weight that is challenging enough to complete 10 […]
Healthy Tip 10 Stressful Situations You Should Stop Being OK With
You only live once, therefore, in your life you should do only those things, which make you happy and satisfied. Tolerating and suffering stressful situations might lead you to not living the life you have been dreaming about. Also, if you are being ok with stressful situations, which are unnecessary, you might even lose energy and stop enjoying your life. Thus, there comes a time when you just have to say no to something and stand up for yourself. Sometimes it can be hard to do so but the outcomes are well worth it. The most common 10 things, which you might have been tolerating for too long in your life, are listed below: Choice to be unhappy.– Only you can control your mood and your attitude to many things. Try to find a positive side in everything. People, who are negative, will always find something to complain about. On the other hand, you can find many reasons to smile about if you decide to be positive. Gossiping and judging others.– Drama is all around us and what you need to do here is get away from it. Stay away from people whose main aim in life is to put […]
5 tips to keep allergy sufferers from dreading spring
(BPT) – From flowers poking through the ground to ditching heavy winter parkas, it’s easy to look forward to spring. Unless, of course, you have allergies. Then, the path to warmer weather and additional daylight could be marked with watery eyes, sneezing and a runny nose. Makes it hard to be excited, right? It doesn’t have to. While spring carries its own concerns for allergy sufferers everywhere, there is relief. Now is the perfect time to set plans in place to help ease your allergy symptoms before they begin. “People think they’re doing everything they can to battle spring allergies,” says allergist Bradley Chipps, MD, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). “But many still find themselves under siege from pollen and other allergens that appear once the weather starts to warm up. What they don’t realize is that by following a few simple rules they can make life a lot more pleasant, and their allergies more bearable.” As you start your spring allergy planning, keep these five tips from ACAAI in mind. Use them and your spring will be filled with flowers and breezes, not coughing and sneezes. 1. It may not only be allergies. […]
Save time in your morning with these kitchen hacks
(BPT) – It happens: You hit the snooze button once, twice, then three times, so when you’re finally showered, dressed and ready to tackle the day, you’re already behind schedule. Oftentimes that causes you to skip breakfast completely. Turns out, your breakfast habit is one time-saving step that should not be skipped. First off, eating a nutritious, high-protein, balanced breakfast every morning is a proven way to kick-start your brain, improving concentration and performance. Plus breakfast is linked to better weight control, as it provides your body energy and may reduce hunger later in the day. Change up how you approach your morning meal and test some of these chef-inspired time-saving tricks and shortcuts in the kitchen. Put away the knife and grater: Grocery stores are waking up to the fact that customers love preparing delicious foods at home, but they don’t love the time it takes to chop and peel. Let the grocery store take on the “sous chef” role, and explore your produce section for inspiration. Pick up a container of sliced fruit and peeled eggs, and you’ll have a grab-and-go breakfast. When you have extra time, pre-chopped veggies and grated cheeses will complete your omelet station in […]
How to eat more protein and improve athletic performance
(BPT) – Whether competing recreationally, at an amateur level or professionally in front of the world, proper nutrition is a key component of any athlete’s performance. A variety of nutrients come into consideration, but one seems to get the highest level of attention: protein. Because protein helps build and maintain muscle and body tissue, it’s important for active individuals to eat enough. Snacking on protein-rich foods and eating meals packed with protein can help support an athlete’s physical wellness so they can reach their goals. Here are a few recommended practices for athletes to lead the pack with their meal routines: Pre-workout fuel for sustained energy: Before practice or a workout, load up on whole grains and protein with hard-boiled eggs and a granola bar to keep you fueled longer. A nutritional powerhouse with only 70 calories, one large egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids. Remember, your muscles rely on mainly carbohydrates, but also protein for sustained energy during activity. Recovery and repair post-workout: After physical activity, include eggs and other protein-packed foods in a post-workout sandwich or wrap to help your recovery. Research indicates eating a mix of carbs and protein — ideally […]
Eating healthy has never been more delicious
(BPT) – Yoga mats, kale salads, fitness trackers, standing desks and gym memberships. It seems like everywhere you look, people are taking strides to get healthier. And with good reason. In the U.S., 37.9 percent of adults aged 20 and older suffer from obesity, and heart disease accounts for one out of every four deaths. Despite these harrowing numbers, many people have difficulty embracing a heart-healthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to food. Part of the reason for this is that too often people think that eating right involves a list of what you cannot eat. It’s easier to focus on all the things you can eat. As February is American Heart Month, it’s a perfect opportunity to consider how easy and delicious it is to stick to a heart-healthy diet. Embrace convenience Sometimes, at the end of the day you just want a quick meal. Unfortunately, most fast food options and restaurants don’t offer heart-healthy options. Fortunately, Sun Basket, a rapidly growing healthy meal kit service, has developed a recipe each week that meets the American Heart Association’s(R) Heart-Check guidelines for a heart-healthy diet, and conveniently delivers them right to your door. Sun Basket’s Heart-Check certified recipes have undergone […]

The Benefits of Senior Living
While Moving Can be Difficult, Senior Living Centers Improve Quality of Life The decision to move to a senior living facility is an emotional one. Generally it involves moving from a home where one has lived for years, even decades. Often, this is the same home where children were raised, so that the entire family has an emotional attachment to the home. Friends, neighbors, and family are often close to the home, which can make it seem like you are leaving people behind, instead of just moving. Moreover, because senior living facilities are smaller than the traditional single-family home, the move to senior living often requires downsizing possessions, which can be difficult for an entire family. Yet, despite these difficulties, seniors who have made the transition from single family homes to senior living facilities report an improvement in their quality of life. To understand why, it is important to understand the advantages that a senior living facility offers for its residents. Reduced maintenance. Owning a home is extremely maintenance intensive. Yard work, weatherizing, shoveling the walk when it snows, replacing air filters, replacing light bulbs, fixing plumbing; the list of maintenance in a home is never-ending. This is not a […]
Stroke Rehabilitation: A Complete Approach
Stroke occurs when blood flow is lost in the brain. When blood flow is blocked or lost, localized damage occurs. Stroke symptoms vary depending on the severity and location of the damage, but typically may include: Weakness or partial paralysis, usually on one side of the body Speech and swallowing difficulties Trouble with balance, walking and movement Difficulty grasping and using the affected hand Stroke symptoms often respond to rehabilitation treatment. A careful therapy plan targeting strength, skill and speech improvement can help bring the stroke victim to the fullest potential of recovery and function. Overview: Stroke Rehabilitation combines specialty therapy for a coordinated treatment plan, improving symptoms, overcoming difficulties and increasing independence for stroke patients. Prevention Reducing stroke risk According to the National Stroke Association, up to 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. If you have one or more risk factors, it’s important that you learn about changes you can make to prevent stroke. Risk factors leading to stroke According to the American Stroke Association, the risk factors for stroke can be hereditary, while others may result from lifestyle choices. Those risk factors resulting from lifestyle or environment can be changed with the help of a healthcare professional. […]
