9 Things to Do When Someone Is Diagnosed With Diabetes The person in your care has just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and you’re not sure how to help her handle this chronic condition. Here are nine things you can do right now to make sure her treatment is on track. 1. Offer support. People react to

a diabetes diagnosis in different ways. Some take it in stride. Others struggle with the information. Denial, fear, anxiety, anger, sadness, depression, and grief are all common responses. In time, the emotional roller-coaster will pass. For now, though, the person

in your care needs your encouragement, empathy, patience, and understanding -- or just your ear so she can vent. It’s important to listen without passing judgment or offering advice. Remember that, while this is a serious problem, it’s not insurmountable. You can assist

by staying positive yourself and helping her learn to manage the condition. 2. Find the health professionals she needs. With a diabetes diagnosis, she’ll need to take a lot of responsibility for managing her own con(continued on page 8)

Alternative Options for Treating Allergic Rhinitis Allergies are a significant health problem leading to fatigue, sick days from work and school, and secondary infections. Allergic rhinitis is a reaction to seasonal airborne allergens. It affects about 7 percent of the population of North America and is a risk factor for 88 percent of asthma patients. We have some excellent prescription medications for treating this, and there are many overthe-counter medications available also. However, BEWARE of the

effective alternative therapies for allergic rhinitis. Remember: no matter what method you use to treat your allergies, nasal rinsing to clear the mucus membranes of trapped allergens is essential. It only takes about 30 seconds, doesn’t hurt a bit when done correctly, and makes all the difference. I recommend NasopureŽ, a product developed by Dr. Hana Solomon, a pediatrician who has put together in one simple kit all you need for successful nasal rinsing. There is an excellent article about this on the Nasopure website ( If you (continued on page 7

A Guide To Dental Health by: Seth Miller People begin to learn about dental health from a very young age, when teeth first begin to show up. But in spite of such early awareness, many people fail to maintain good dental health through their adult life. Good dental health comprises brushing and flossing your teeth every day, and regular visits to a dentist or dental hygienist as well. Besides, people supplement their dental care with the use of products like mouthwash or advanced mouth care systems. You should

keep it in mind that the lack of adequate dental care practices will result in cavities and gum disease. It is generally advised that you use a toothbrush with softer bristles so as to protect your gums. Some people, however, prefer power brush systems that help break up plaque and bacteria in your mouth. But it takes more than brushing to keep your teeth in good health. Some other steps need to be taken to ensure that people do not lose their teeth as they become old.

To begin with, you should understand your own oral health needs, as your oral health depends on your diet, the type and amount of saliva in your mouth, your overall health and your oral hygiene routine. Try to follow a daily routine in consultation with your dentist. As fluoride strengthens developing teeth in kids and prevents decay in adults, toothpastes and mouthwashes containing fluoride should be used. You should brush at least twice a day, if possible three times

or after every meal. You should also floss at least twice a day. Brushing and flossing will remove plaque, a complex mass of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. Limit the consumption of snacks and follow a balanced diet plan. Tobacco in any form will enhance the risk of oral cancer and cause stains on your teeth. Visit your dentist regularly and get your mouth examined. END

Debunking the Diet Myths

by Lee McCaskill Dieting myths about what you should do when you are dieting--we have all heard them, but which info is correct? Just like Belly Bustin’ Tips #32: Debunking the Diet Myths Gossip and other rumors, who knows who starts them, but here’s the skinny on the facts about the ones I hear most often in my diet clinics. Diet Myth #1: You shouldn’t eat after 6 pm—the food turns straight into fat. That myth probably started

because you should eat about 3 hours before you retire for the night to allow for digestion, but it is entirely false. Your weight is affected by your collective calories over the whole the day, whether you eat late or not. However, it is best to fuel your body every four to five hours with portion-controlled, healthy snacks in-between. If you eat at 9:00 pm, that is fine if you are going to bed at midnight. Just give your body time to digest your food. Diet Myth # 2: Salads are always healthy—you can never go wrong with a salad. Salads can be loaded with calories and fat! It just depends on what toppings and dressing you choose. One ounce of shredded cheese has 10 grams of fat; avocados have 4.5 grams of fat per slice; Caesar dressing has 22 grams of fat! If you add olives, buttered croutons, and dried fruit, all which is both high in calories and carbohydrates, before you know it you are gaining weight

eating salads! The key to weight loss is to take in fewer calories than you burn off, and too much of any food, no matter how healthy, will sabotage your diet. So bottom line: if nothing else, count your calories in a salad if you don’t know anything else about what you are eating in them! Diet Myth #3: Diet soda is harmless and I should drink it when I am dieting. Researchers have discovered a link between obesity and artificial sweeteners used in diet soda. Purdue University conducted a study finding that rats fed artificial sweeteners before mealtime tended to eat more than rats fed sugar. In another study, they found that people who consumed three diet sodas per week were 40 percent more likely to be obese than people who did not consume diet sodas. Diet Myth #4: Sea salt is a healthier version of regular salt. Contrary to what you may have heard, the

body cannot tell much difference between the two. Both contain roughly 2,300 milligrams of sodium per teaspoon. It is best to reduce sodium intake and increase potassium intake (with melons and vegetables, not high carb bananas) when dieting. If you experience leg cramps, then try increasing your sodium intake as you may have cut it too severely. Diet Myth #5: Certain foods like cabbage soup or grapefruit can burn fat. It’s true that these foods are low in calories but there is no scientific basis that these type diets will help you lose long-term weight. If you lose weight when you eat them, it is probably because you are probably substituting them for other higher calorie foods in your diet you normally eat. Diet Myth #6: Fat-free is diet food.

are regularly using your Nasopure速, and still having difficulties, you can try some of the following remedies without significant side effects. Vitamin and mineral supplements: * Vitamin A - 10,000 IU/day * Vitamin B6 - 50-100 mg/day * Vitamin B5 - 50-75 mg/day * Vitamin C - 1,000 mg/day in 3 divided doses * Vitamin E - 400 IU/day * Zinc - 20-30 mg/day In addition some herbs and nutrients can help: Quercetin has anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory effects if you take it 250mg two or three times a day. Freeze-dried stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) can relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis at a dosage of 300mg twice a day. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), also called fish oil, can help asthma patients with allergies by stabilizing the airways. They come in capsules and the total dose of the combination should be 2-4 g/day. Acupuncture has given many patients significant relief. The Chinese medicine paradigm is very different than Western medicine, so I cannot explain the mechanism of action. But I know that it is effective! See your doctor about allergy symptoms if you are unable to manage them on your own - the nonsedating antihistamines and anti-inflammatory nasal sprays available today are excellent in treating this significant health problem!

9 Things to Do When Someone Is Diagnosed With Diabetes (continued from page 3) dition. But she doesn’t have to go it alone. A variety of healthcare providers -- including doctors, nurses, diabetes educators, dietitians, social workers, and others -- can help. Working together as a team, these professionals provide ongoing care, education, and support to help her live a healthy life with diabetes. You can help her line them up so she doesn’t feel overwhelmed by the task. 3. Sign her up for a class. There’s a lot to learn about diabetes and its treatment. Find a diabetes education class taught by a certified diabetes educator and sign up the person in your care to help her figure out how to manage the condition, organize a treatment plan, and learn new skills. Even better: Go along with her, if you can, and educate yourself about the disease as well. Medicare and most health insurance plans cover this service; check with her plan first to make sure. 4. Buy her a meter. Talk with her main diabetes doctor, diabetes educator, or pharmacist to help you find the blood glucose meter that best fits her needs and budget. Medicare and most health insurers help pay for diabetes self-testing equipment and supplies, including meters, test strips, and lancets. Find out first what’s covered under her plan. And make sure both of you get instruction on how to use a glucose meter from a health professional. 5. Help her make dietary changes. Both of you need to know how food affects her disease. She’ll need to pay more attention to what she eats, when, and how much. Get a

recommendation from her main diabetes health provider for a registered dietitian who can assist in planning meals. And if you’re doing the cooking, be sure to go along to the appointment to learn how you can help make healthier meals.

7. Figure out ways to keep medication records. It’s common to have to take prescription drugs to help treat type 2 diabetes. She may also need to take pills to manage other problems common in people with diabetes, such as high cholesterol

6. Encourage her to get active. Even modest amounts of movement can make a difference in managing this disease. So help her figure out ways

or high blood pressure. Or she may take medicines for other, unrelated ailments. Helping her remember to take all her drugs as directed can

to get up and get going. If you can, join her for a walk with the dog or for a round of golf (and if the two of you can manage without it, don’t use a cart!).

require a little advance planning. A sheet taped to the fridge, a logbook, an automated pill dispenser, or a computer software program could do the trick.

8. Look for a support group. Check to see if her local hospital or diabetes center offers a support group, and try to find one geared toward older adults. Her doctor or diabetes educator should be able to help with this. The Defeat Diabetes Foundation lists diabetes support groups in all 50 states. She could also find a virtual support group by searching using the keywords diabetes online support group. 9. Educate yourself. It’s not just the person in your care who needs to learn about this disease. If you want to be a valuable partner with her as she manages her condition, you’ll need to get up to speed, too. Ask her to let you participate in visits with her primary diabetes care provider if you need more information or have questions about her diagnosis or treatment, or ask her to give her doctor permission to speak with you about it. An authoritative guide to the disease can also be useful to read, although it won’t be able to assess a particular situation. The American Diabetes Association Complete Guide to Diabetes, Diabetes for Dummies by endocrinologist Alan Rubin, or The Joslin Guide to Diabetes by Richard S. Beaser of the internationally renowned Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, are a few good choices. END

When food manufacturers remove the fat, and thus the flavor from food, they often have to add sugar and therefore calories and carbs to food to add back the flavor. Snackwell’s™ do not make diet food! Diet Myth #7: Juice Fasting is a great way to slim down and cleanse. Your kidneys, liver and bladder

do the job quite nicely. Juices are high in sugar and can create chaos in your blood sugar levels going up and down, leaving you quite hungry. Juice is also void of protein, a macronutrient that’s crucial during weight loss in preventing loss of lean muscle mass, stabilizing your blood sugar and revving up your metabolism. Most registered

Winter’s Over...Now is the Time for Spring Detox (by: Raven Caracci) Holiday season has passed. Down with using festivities to excuse our unhealthy eating habits! No more grandma’s cookies with milk, and no more last sliver of pie because “it needs to go somewhere”. We end up wondering “Where did my energy go?”, “Why can’t I fit in my favorite pair of jeans?” and “Why do I feel sick?” If you found yourself doing just that, then you may need a detox. You purge the chemicals, preservatives, carcinogens and the hormones. You give those toxins a kick to the curb and you get back on track. If you put too much stress on the body, the once very optimal conditions of these organs become weak and have a harder time filtering out toxins on their own. When this happens, it is your turn to step in and take the necessary measures to help the detoxification process. A proper alkaline diet along with nutritive support is a good start to getting the body in balance, but taking certain natural herbs can stimulate the body to detoxify and clear out old toxins from the month before. So how do you know what your body needs? • Yellow Dock: Herbalists highly recommend yellow dock for liver metabolism and to help support the gastrointestinal tract. It may cause a mild laxative effect. This is beneficial when we are trying to cleanse our digestive system of toxins. Yellow dock not only stimulates bile production but can be a great lymphatic cleanser. It is suggested to take this herb through a liquid extract daily until you have completed your cleanse. Do not take this herb for long periods of time, for it can

lower potassium levels. • Dandelion: Dandelion is known for being in the family of bitter herbs. When ingesting bitter herbs you immediately stimulate the bile flow in your body by stimulating the production of stomach

acid which aids in digestion. It is also known as a natural diuretic. Drinking dandelion tea promotes gentle detoxing, and clearing skin interruptions including but not limited to eczema, psoriasis, warts, and acne. • Licorice: Licorice is also a diuretic and is used as a natural digestive stimulator. This is probably the most soothing for its ability to calm stomach aches and decrease inflammation. If you are wondering, no you cannot go out and buy some red vines and hope that would magically cure your stomach queasiness! A best form of licorice is organic, and locally grown. Look for deglycyrrhizinated licorice tablets, or licorice in a form of an herbal tea. • Burdock: Burdock can be compared to yellow dock for its diuretic properties but it has many other functions. It naturally increases urination and the bile secretion in the liver/gallbladder. Burdock can be a prespirant and tends to release toxins and water retention through skin. The wonderful thing about burdock is its fibrous content,

which allows those toxins that are now loose in the body, to be grabbed up and pulled out along with the burdock though urination and bowel movements. We can all use some burdock in place of coffee, or even as a spice, chopped up and served fresh in our food. • Red Clover: Red clover can be a great blood cleanser due to cleaning the liver. It can break up swollen lymph nodes by decongesting these areas and starting up the flow of the lymph fluids in the system. Red clover is known for being a great alterative and anti-spasmodic by most herbalists. This can be taken by liquid extract, capsule, or tea. • Echinacea: The common cold isn’t the only thing this super herb is good for! Echinacea is already well known for being an excellent immune booster and ‘natural antibiotic’. It can help with many ailments including lymphatic congestion, low immunity, and bloodstream infections. Directing white blood cells into areas of contamination, it stimulates the body’s natural defenses against toxins and chemicals jump starting the detoxification process. Over all, it benefits the whole lymphatic system by absorption, assimilation and excretion. Liquid extracts of this herb can be great for on the go. • Goldenseal: Many know this herb as a cold-killer and if taken by first sign of cold symptoms, may kill it off before it even has a chance.

Common Sport Injuries In Young Athletes According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health in the US, the most common sport injuries are due to accidents, poor training practices or using the wrong gear or equipment. People can also hurt themselves because they are not in shape, or because they don’t warm up or stretch enough. Some injury experts in the US have said they are also seeing more and more young athletes injured because of overuse and doing too much, and this may partially explain the growing numbers that drop out of sport by the eighth grade. The most common sports injuries are: • Knee injuries • Sprains and strains • Swollen muscles • Achilles tendon injuries • Pain along the shin bone • Fractures & dislocations.

While injuries in young athletes are similar to the ones that affect adults, they can’t always be treated in the same way because their bodies are not fully developed. Contact your sports medicine specialist for more information. END

Always ask your trainer to write down a diet schedule for you. 7) Give rest to your body between two sets, say for two minutes.   8) Do not work on more than two muscle groups at a time. Train

those mucles in a group which work with each other. This technique has proven to be effective. For eg: Chest and Triceps or biceps and backs. 9) The most effective time to do muscle building exercises is in the morning. You have consumed a lot of carbs by evening. So, carbs become the source of energy for you when you do your exercises in the evening. But in the morning, the body depends on its alternative source, i.e FAT, for energy. Hence fats get burned up more in the morning.   10) Last but not least, don’t be biased to any body part. Proper

balance is a necessity. Having big upper body and skinny legs is no good. Work out your entire body.
