FEED THE BRAIN.

Filed under: More — admin @ 11:57 am

Serve these foods to your children to increase
their ability to concentrate and focus, to retain
memories, and to think more clearly.

1. Blueberries are a favorite brain food. Studies have shown
that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved the
learning capacity of aging rats.

2. Yogurt is a calcium rich food that improves nerve function.
It contains an amino acid that is responsible for producing
dopamine, which aids memory function and increases alertness.

3. Avocados are a monounsaturated fat, which
contributes to healthy blood flow. Healthy blood
flow means a healthy brain.

4. Eggs contain the nutrient choline, which
is necessary for the complete development
of the memory center of a child’s brain.
One egg yolk has about 200 mg of choline,
which is the daily requirement for toddlers.

5. Chocolate is good for you. Yes, it’s true. The key is to choose
dark chocolate. Stimulants found in dark chocolate are
credited with improving mood and increasing concentration.

Kids Nutrition Tips

Filed under: Articles — admin @ 12:35 pm

-Whether you have a toddler or a teen, here are five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits:

-Kids, especially younger ones, will eat mostly what’s available at home. That’s why it’s important to control the supply lines — the foods that you serve for meals and have on hand healthy snacks.

-Helpful tips:

  • Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine
  • Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks
  • Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein
  • Choose whole-grain breads and cereals

-Here are examples of the benefits of good nutrition in childhood:

  • Healthy weight for height
  • Mental well being—feeling good
  • Clear thinking and school performance
  • Strong bones and muscles
  • Good energy level
  • Ability to fight off sickness or disease
  • Healthy healing of wounds
  • Easy recovery from illness or injury
  • Reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancers and bone diseases such as osteoporosis in the future
  • Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks
  • Limit sugary drinks

-Food preferences are developed early in life, so offer variety. Likes and dislikes begin forming even when kids are babies. You may need to serve a new food on several different occasions for a child to accept it. Don’t force a child to eat, but offer a few bites. With older kids, ask them to try one bite.

-Make sure every bite your child eats is as nutrient dense as possible. Allowing them to fill up on non-nutritive calories (like too much juice for instance) can displace the nutritious foods they would have otherwise eaten.

-Discourage the habit of eating and watching television simultaneously. Consider limiting television, which has been linked with childhood and adolescent obesity.

Question: I am a healthy person, so why do I need a primary care physician?

Filed under: Articles — admin @ 4:09 pm

Answer:

By seeing your doctor for routine care, there is a greater chance of discovering and managing a disease you have now, or learning about the risks you carry. Preventive care is a vital part of your overall health care. You can reduce your risk, delay onset or even prevent these harmful diseases from occurring.   As physicians, we strive to find and control disease states before they become life-threatening. We want to educate patients about how important it is to be proactive about their health. After all, your body is the most precious thing you own. Come visit, and we can be your partner in protecting your good health.
