3 Diabetic Exercise Tips for Better Health

A proper diet is always essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially for a diabetic, but a diabetic exercise program can also be beneficial to both your overall health and keeping your blood sugar constant. These exercises do not have to be strenuous, but cardio endurance and a bit of resistance training can provide significant benefits. There are several health-oriented fitness centers in NC that can help diabetics design exercise programs that suit their individual needs.

1. Cardio-endurance

Most centers for weight loss, NC gyms and other health centers have equipment intended for cardio-endurance. Slow paced, low impact activity is recommended for diabetics looking to pursue cardiovascular exercise.

Depending on your current fitness level, start with 30 minutes and stop the reps until your heart rate normalizes. Drink lots of fluids during exercise, especially if you are feeling a little nauseous or out of breath. The fluids should contain a little sugar to prevent your blood sugar from dropping too far. Always make sure that your personal trainer or the gym staff be informed of your condition before hand so that they can help you watch for warning signs of low blood sugar.

2. Resistance-training

Diabetes is difficult to live with but once you know the right ways to deal with it, it can become much more manageable. You can improve your leg strength by doing 20 minute treadmill walking at the one of the many centers for fitness Greensboro has to offer. Exercises for diabetics should have less impact on the legs because of the risk of diabetic neuropathy that can lead to weakening of the nerves.

3. Swimming

Swimming is a great way to get low impact resistance training. The water offers plenty of resistance to help you tone your muscles without putting any stress on your joints. This is also a good cardio exercise since you can increase heart rate without working up a sweat.

With any diabetic exercise, it’s important to remember to stop and snack if you feel hungry. When you exercise, you are at greater risk of your blood sugar dropping dangerously low. Before exercise, it is also good to have enough sleep prior to the program. Diabetic or not, you have more energy and stamina when your body has had enough rest.

Tampa Plastic Surgery Center Delivers A Better Way To A Better Body

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 27, 2015

A. Joshua Halpern, MD, PA, a Tampa Bay based board-certified plastic surgeon announces the addition of UltraShape®, a revolutionary body-shaping solution from aesthetic medical device leader Syneron Candela, to his Tampa Plastic Surgery Center.

Recently FDA cleared for fat cell destruction, UltraShape is the first and only non-invasive body shaping treatment that uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy to precisely target subcutaneous fat, without harming the surrounding tissue, vasculature, nerves or muscles area. Unlike other body shaping technologies, UltraShape uses a pure mechanical effect to destroy fat cells without inducing thermal damage. This unique feature of the UltraShape technology results in a safe and comfortable treatment experience.

“In Florida, where it is beach season year round, there is a growing demand for simple non-invasive body slimming solutions to help men and women feel their best,” says Dr. Halpern. “UltraShape allows us to eliminate stubborn abdominal fat faster than ever before, with results seen is as little as two weeks after the first treatment; nothing non-invasive works faster.”

UltraShape targets stubborn fat that is unaffected by diet or exercise. Unlike liposuction, the treatment is non-surgical, which means no incisions, anesthetics or recovery time. It is painless and there is no downtime, making it an ideal ‘lunchtime treatment.’ Treatments take less than an hour and patients can go right back to their normal activities without any disruption.

“The benefit of UltraShape is that each treatment can be customized to the individual patient,” states Dr. Halpern. “UltraShape’s patented technology allows us to precisely deliver ultrasound energy with extraordinary accuracy, allowing us to target and destroy fat cells immediately. Unlike traditional ultrasound technology, UltraShape distributes energy in pulses rather than in a single continuous delivery, which can be painful. The result is a quick, safe and comfortable treatment experience without discomfort, lumps, bumps or soreness.”

UltraShape’s unique abilities make it extremely appealing to the increasing number of men and women seeking safe, quick, and painless ways to reduce stubborn abdominal fat. Now, achieving a flatter stomach doesn’t have to be torture.

DeMatha Catholic Is the First High School Baseball Team to Use The Right Profile’s TAP 360 Pro-Level Mindset Assessment Tools to Better Develop Its Athletes


Hyattsville, MD (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

Although the Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) has been used by NFL, MLB and NBA teams for decades to better evaluate, coach and develop their athletes, it was not offered to college and high school athletic programs until late 2014. Many pro teams, including the Kansas City Royals, Washington Nationals and the New England Patriots, use the TAP as an integral part of their organization’s talent pipeline, development and mental conditioning programs. The Right Profile recently interviewed DeMatha Catholic high school’s head baseball coach, Sean O’Connor, about being the first high school baseball coach nationally to use the TAP in its athlete development program.

At the heart of the interview lies the main question for any prep-sport baseball fan – with a proven track record like that of DeMatha Catholic and a personal coaching resume that has earned Coach O’Connor an upcoming induction into the Baltimore Boys of Summer Hall of Fame later this spring, why add a pro-level system like TAP 360 to their program? Coach O’Connor was direct. “As I coach, I need to figure out what makes a player tick, what makes a player move on, and what is a great characteristic of an athlete and of an alumnus, that’s what sold me on the whole process.” Even though the coach says he knows these kids really well, he confessed that “the TAP takes it to a completely different level.”

Coach O’Connor has had all of his players take the TAP and is planning to use the TAP 360 reports to enhance player development and communications with his athletes. “If we have the tool to identify (player weakness and development opportunities) and help them, we are going to make them better citizens, better people, and better athletes.” That holistic approach extends to basic communications and trust. “If the players have a trust factor and we have a trust factor, we can be very successful.”

The full text of the interview is available on The Right Profile’s press and media page.

About The Right Profile

The Right Profile’s TAP 360 System is an athlete development & coaching system for the mental game. It is based on the Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) taken by nearly 20,000 elite athletes. The TAP 360 System is used by teams in the NFL®, MLB® & NBA® to evaluate and develop professional athletes, and there are specialized TAP 360 versions for collegiate, high school and club athletic teams. The goal of the TAP 360 system is to help athletes develop a champion’s mindset. The system also includes athlete development reports and suggested exercises and activities to improve an athlete’s mental game. For more information, visit athletetypes.com. To take the TAP assessment, visit TakeTheTAP.com. TAP 360 is product of The Right Profile.

Here’s To Better Golf Exercise

Golf is no exception. That golf game may look slow. In reality however, it can take its toll on someone who isn’t prepared to face up to the challenge. Mental preparation helps you think faster. This is likewise important since you have to do a lot of calculation and strategising at each hole. It’s basically trying to figure out how to make as few stops as possible on the way to the hole — some 300 or so yards away.

 Physical preparation on the other hand, helps one avoid injury during those “back breaking swings”. This can actually become a reality if you’re not prepared. Getting enough exercise can likewise give you better game results. And this is something every golfer wants.

 Here is a word of advice when choosing proper golf equipment — choose what suits you best. And exercise golf equipment likewise follows this “rule”. Why? Quite simple really: it should be able to bring out the best in your game. Here are some examples:

 Take the hand weights or “dumbells” for instance. They may look simple. They are lightweight – 5 to 8 pounds of metal. But looks can be deceiving. These seemingly simple pieces of golf equipment can actually do a lot for your golf game. They can actually aid you with up to 12 golf specific exercise routines. And these are for various core regions. Fantastic!

 Rubber tubing can likewise aid you with so many types of golf related physical exercises. From the simple to the complex. What’s more, just like those dumbbells, they are inexpensive, lightweight, and portable. You can practically take your “exercise program” with you — literally.

 Then there are the balls. These are the weighted medicine balls and stability balls. For those who aren’t sure of their differences, the medicine balls are pretty much your tennis ball sized round objects. They are a bit heavier though. These are fantastic for developing those forearm muscles. The stability ball on the other hand, is that beach ball-like round thing used to develop stability, balance and overall fitness. And just like other exercise golf equipment, they can be taken anywhere and used anytime.

 So know what type of exercise golf equipment your body needs. Doing so will definitely help you get that near-perfect game.

Leading Sleep Expert Offers Five Modern Day Tips for a Better Nights Sleep

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

While many people find it easy to be mindful of and work toward being healthier by changing their nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle habits, perhaps the most crucial element to a healthy body is often overlooked: Sleep. We spend up to a third of our lives doing it and we will literally die without it. Yet, the sleep aid sections of local pharmacies continue to expand, as an estimated 60 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders and over $ 56 billion and 25,000 lives are lost each year in the US because of sleep-related accidents.

In conjunction with national Sleep Awareness Week, March 2-8, 2015 (http://sleepfoundation.org/events-activities/sleep-awareness-week), sleep expert Karen Schwarzbach has compiled a list of five lesser-known facts and tips for a healthier sleep that everyone can consider and integrate into their lifestyles. Schwarzbach, a respected sleep consultant for more than twelve years who has helped literally thousands of sleep-deprived individuals finally achieve healthy and peaceful sleep patterns, outlines what she considers some of the more unknown sleep problems – and their solutions – that she encounters in our increasingly technology-dependent and high-pressure performance culture. With the recent nationwide integration the Affordable Health Care Act, Schwarzbach’s work has been increasingly in demand as focus on corporate wellness programs now being required by the act (for corporations of a certain size) continue to proliferate.

Schwarzbach, who routinely advocates sleep as one of the “Three Pillars of Health” (along with exercise and nutrition), has outlined the following top five oft-times surprising factors that contribute to modern Western cultural sleep maladies and her corresponding secrets for a better night’s sleep:


Avoid Wine Before Bedtime. It’s a nightly ritual for many Americans – drinking a couple of glasses of alcohol directly before falling asleep. In fact, many people consider alcohol a sleep aid due to its relaxing qualities. But, what many don’t realize is it is also common for pre-bedtime drinks to contribute to one being wide awake several hours after conking out. Schwarzbach explains that while drinking before bed can induce sleep, it actually disrupts sleep and diminishes the quality and depth of sleep, leading to restlessness and frequent wakings leaving one feeling fatigued the next morning. Also, alcohol is a diuretic, which can be dehydrating as well as increase one’s need to go the bathroom, causing one to awaken from slumber. She recommends that if wine or alcohol are a part of your evening routine, try to stop drinking at least one hour prior to sleep to preserve the most deep and crucial stages of sleep.

Avoid Electronics Before Bedtime. Many people routinely attempt to fall asleep immediately after watching television, using their laptops or checking e-mail or using apps on their smart phones. Many people are unaware that these devices all emit low blue light, which is absorbed and processed by the brain and can disrupt or slow down the body’s melatonin production, which influences natural nighttime sleep algorithms. Schwarzbach recommends ceasing the use of all devices at least 1 hour prior to going to bed and not keeping phones and laptops on at the bedside.

Sleep Tracking Devices Aren’t a Cure-All. As increasing use of technology can impair sleep, the recent onslaught of new technology devices and apps that help track and monitor sleeping habits can help improve overall sleep. However, Schwarzbach warns that while these technologies can provide important data, they are often unaccompanied by meaningful and effective behavioral modification programs. Schwarzbach promotes a “High Tech with High Touch” approach, working with her clients to map out routines for remedying problem-causing factors to maximize the useful info that has been gathered.

Daylight Savings Time Can Debilitate. While it may seem like only an hour and of little change to one’s daily schedule, biannual time shifts can dramatically and adversely affect sleeping patterns for weeks – even months – following the clock changes. Even a slight change in the body’s regular circadian rhythm can throw sleep patterns into disarray, an issue Schwarzbach says is often incredibly evident in children. In order to better adapt to these changes, Schwarzbach recommends starting to adjust the time you go to bed and the time you wake up by 15 minutes every couple of days preceding the time change. This way you have helped your body land back where it began when the clock moves forward by an hour in the Spring.

Never Underestimate Sleep Environment. Factors including noise, light, temperature, pillows and mattress and decor might seem like obvious considerations for an optimal sleeping environment, but Schwarzbach emphasizes the importance of considering all five of these factors for improving unhealthy sleep. It could be as easy as taking down a loudly colored painting on the wall, reducing the room lighting to a lower bulb wattage (low blue light), turning the clock away from your bed so you’re not tempted to start doing math in the middle of the night figuring out how many more hours of sleep you can get, using a white noise maker, choosing the most appropriate bedding or decreasing the room temperature to between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit (“Cool is the Rule!”) degrees prior to sleep.

“Insomnia is perhaps the most underrated health ailment in the US and Sleep Awareness Week is a time for self-reflection and education for improving these ailments,” said Schwarzbach. “Our sleep patterns dramatically affect our health, performance and overall sense of well-being. Once people have the tools and information to modify their sleeping habits, they can experience life-changing results within days and weeks.”

Nader Keshvaris new book helps readers Enjoy Better Sex


LONDON (PRWEB) January 12, 2015

From 1985 to 1990, author Nader Keshvari became sexually impotent after a traumatic kidnapping experience. With traditional doctors unable to help him regain his sexual passion, he turned to holistic therapy for answers. What he found was startling – holistic healing helped him overcome impotence and regain his appetite for sex with greater desire than ever before.

In his new guide to sexual healing and self-improvement titled “Enjoy Better Sex” (published by AuthorHouse UK), Keshvari details the ways in which any person struggling with impotence can improve his or her sex life following simple changes to diet, exercise and attitude.

“If you are impotent, suffer from premature ejaculation, are overweight or have a diabetes problem, read and do what is in this book to the letter,” Keshvari says. “You have a life of joy to gain at no cost to you. Compare the results from just a few days to a few weeks and you will believe miracles exist, just as I do.”

About the Author

Nader Keshvari was a man who never experienced intimacy problems. He was a healthy, married, happy business owner in a small town in the Alpine region of Europe. But over the course of five weeks, he was kidnapped, drugged and raped. He then carried the stress of this traumatic experience with him and suffered in his career, his marriage and his sex life. After gaining his life back, he still struggled with impotency. After researching treatments for impotency for two years and joining the Institute of Holistic Therapists in 1991, he learned how to treat his impotency without the use of drugs and have a better sex life than ever before.
