Sun Health Center for Health & Wellbeing Celebrates Its First Anniversary


SURPRISE, ARIZ. (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

Since its opening last March, the Sun Health Center for Health & Wellbeing has touched the lives of thousands of West Valley residents through health education and fitness classes, support groups and individual consultations designed to help them live longer, healthier lives.

One of those lives is Diana (who asked that her last name be withheld), a 56-year-old Sun City resident whose physician gave her three months to lower her cholesterol and blood pressure or face taking medications to address her symptoms. Diana took several nutrition and exercise-related classes at the center and it paid off.

“I took your teaching about diet and exercise to ‘heart,’ and I wanted you to know my results after those three months,” Diana wrote in an email. “I lost 15-pounds; my total cholesterol went down 30 points to 185 with my HDL (“good” cholesterol) going up 3 points; my triglycerides dropped 25 points and my blood pressure dropped 8 points…my doctor was surprised and very pleased.”

Diana’s story is just one example of positive changes linked to the center (see infographic for more), which is staffed by a full-time registered dietitian/certified diabetes educator; an exercise physiologist/certified health coach and a memory care/dementia expert. In addition, the center contracts with a licensed acupuncturist, several licensed massage therapists, yoga and Tai Chi instructors and a medical director.

The original center opened in Surprise but it recently expanded to two other West Valley communities, Sun City and Litchfield Park. All three centers are located in areas largely populated by adults 65 and older, many of whom have one or more chronic diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases—like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer—are leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

Jennifer Drago, Sun Health’s executive vice president of Population Health, says all of the center’s programs and treatments are rooted in research. “We use evidence-based programs designed to complement physicians’ diagnoses and recommended treatments. We give people, especially those with chronic conditions, tools to help them self-manage their health, make positive lifestyle changes and improve their overall quality of life.”

The center’s staff members see about 100 clients a week (through group classes or 1-on-1 consultations) with services ranging from nutrition counseling, medical nutrition therapy and weight management classes to fitness and exercise classes, acupuncture, massage and medication reviews. Center staff members also provide evidence-based educational programs that address diabetes, pre-diabetes, living with chronic conditions and tobacco cessation.

The Sun Health Center for Health & Wellbeing reflects a national trend toward prevention and wellness services and a growing push for Americans to become more involved in managing their own health.

“Chronic diseases are among the most common and costly of all health problems in the United States,” Drago said. “They are also some of the most preventable. Much of the pain and suffering related to chronic diseases is caused by behaviors that people can change, behaviors such as unhealthy eating and a lack of physical activity. How people exercise, what they eat, how they handle stress is very much tied to their health.”

The center is largely funded by donations to Sun Health Foundation, which enables the center to offer the majority of its health education classes for free or at low cost.

Diana is thankful for that and she’s looking forward to her next visit with her physician. “I feel that the lifestyle changes that I made in the last three months have now become permanent, and I anticipate that my results a year from now will be even better.”

CNET News – Track fitness and well-being with Health

http://cnet.co/1w2Sz9L Apple offers a complete picture of your well-being with Health, a portal for all your fitness and health-related apps.

Fitness is an extremely important aspect of your life. If you don’t know how to get fit or need tips on how to stay motivated, you’ve come to the right place. This article is to inform you on how to improve your fitness, as well as, how you can start feeling and looking better.

Don’t have much time for workouts? Break your workout into two sessions. You do not need to increase the overall amount of time spent working out, just split a regular training session into two smaller halves. If you normally spend 60 minutes on the treadmill, schedule half an hour of treadmill time each morning, and 30 minutes more later that night. If you’d prefer not to go to your gym more than once in a day, you can try doing one workout at your gym, and doing one workout outdoors.

A great way to get fit is to invest in a bike. Riding a bike is a great way to get out and enjoy the outdoors. You can also burn a fair amount of calories. You can even ride your bike to take care of your errands.

Do not regularly use a weight training belt when lifting weights. With continued, regular use, wearing a weight belt will hinder muscle growth and weaken your lower back and abdominal muscles. Only wear your weight training belt when attempting max lifts such as deadlifts, squats, and overhead presses.

While horseback riding visualize your legs extending all the way through the stirrups to the ground. This technique will give you a better seat and allow you stay in the saddle even in the roughest terrain. Combine this visualization with a deep seat where you position yourself far back in the saddle and your confidence level will shine.

Even the most seasoned runner encounters muscle soreness in their calves upon waking in the morning. Try this: sleep on your stomach and allow your feet to hang over the side of your bed. Overnight, the effects of gravity will lightly stretch your muscles, making them noticeably less sore when you wake up the next morning.

To help gain weight you can use nutrition guidelines to increase your caloric intake properly. This will help you to gain healthy weight and mass, verses simply gaining only fat. If you have a high metabolism, you will not want to simply increase your sugar intake, you want to ingest high amounts of protein nutrition to help you make more muscle with exercise.

Strength training is an important part of fitness. Participate in strength training whenever it’s possible. This training type positively affects general health and well being. It increases bone, ligament and muscle strength, while at the same time it increases the metabolism rate and positively modifies cardiac function. Include a professional trainer in designing your strength training.

When you are eating out, take your time with the menu. Many restaurants now offer a healthy selection of meals that are full of nutrients and are low in calories. If you can’t find anything that looks like it will benefit you, don’t be scared to speak up and they might be able to make you something.

If you consume a protein shake after a workout, make sure to drink it right away. Studies show that when a person has a protein shake within 5 minutes of finishing their workout, they will gain more muscle. People who consumed the drink two hours later did not gain as much muscle.

Don’t stop working out just because it’s winter. When the weather turns cold, layer your workout clothing and shed it as need be, or figure out a way to get your exercise indoors. Many activities can be done in your own living room, such as running in place, calisthenics, stretching and crunches. Don’t ever use the season or the weather as an excuse to not work out.

If you are planning a program to increase your fitness level keep track of your progress. This will help you see what methods are effective for you, as everyone has different needs. It will also be a source of motivation when you see your running time increase or your body-fat percentage decrease.

Everywhere you turn, you will see recommendations to incorporate exercise into your life, but you do not have to join a gym to get the benefits of exercise. Taking a brisk walk as often as you can will improve your circulation, strengthen your body and burn calories. Walking is a very good way to stay in shape and tone your body.

You should dedicate yourself to sticking with your fitness program through at least one month. It takes your body about 30 days to adjust itself to a new, more active lifestyle. Giving up is most tempting – and most likely – during this initial, transitional phase. Summon your resolve and tough it out past the critical one-month point.

Find ways to make exercising fun. Exercise is important, but it can be difficult to continue if it feels like a chore. Vary your routine by running or walking a different route, joining a sports team, or using activities like gardening or dancing to work out. Making exercise interesting will make it an enjoyable habit.

Remember that fitness is incredibly important for how you look and feel. With these tips, you’ll be able to get fit and stay that way, if you make yourself a program and stick with it. Don’t wait until tomorrow. Apply the advice from this article in your life and watch your life improve.
