Editor’s Letter

Rethink Summer and Revitalize Your Life Blazing. Scorching. Scalding. Feverish. Blistering. As an Arizona native, I’ve heard people use each of these, and a few other choice words, to describe summertime in Phoenix. I’ll agree that there’s absolutely nothing desirable about 115+ degree weather. Vehicle seatbelts turn into fiery cattle prods, calorie-laden ice cream becomes the most appealing food group and even the swimming pool that was once a backyard oasis reaches bathwater temperatures. I’m a firm believer that happiness is essential to staying healthy, so how on earth can we stay cheerful and well when it’s so miserable outside? It’s easier than you might think. Try shelving the adult attitude and thinking like a kid during the hottest season of the year. It might sound silly and maybe even a little immature, but there’s some truth to the old cliché of mind over matter. Fantasize back to your childhood summers. If you lived in Arizona, like I did, you probably spent all day with your friends riding bikes, running across the asphalt barefoot and climbing metal playground equipment without thinking twice – and doing it all in the unforgiving climate.

We were impervious to the merciless heat – not because our youthful skin was unreceptive to the sizzling weather – but because we simply accepted the freedom, relaxation and beauty of the season. I hope this issue of Healthstyle Magazine will act as a wellness guide to help you stay happy, healthy and motivated this summer – in other words, go back, figuratively speaking, to the 10-year-old version of yourself. I challenge you to embrace the season and focus on the desirable qualities Arizona has to offer this time of year. Enjoy a barbeque with friends (check out page 10 for mouthwatering recipes), treat yourself to a new experience (see page 34 for some crisp ideas), and reinvigorate with fresh ways to think about the same old things (great ideas on page 6). Whatever you decide to do this summer, get creative and stay positive. Cheers to a better summer and a happier you!

lighten Up! The clocks have gone forward – at least for most of the country – the evenings are brighter and summer is already blazing away. There is no better way to shake off last season than getting your body, mind and home ready for the warm (aka roaring hot) summer months. by Dr. robert iversen

Even if you don’t contribute to the 9.7 percent of the population who the U.S. National Library of Medicine says suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or seasonal depression, chances are, you could probably use a couple of positive changes to enhance your attitude and amp yourself up for the rest of the year. Try taking on one or all of these summertime solutions to de-stress, relax and “lighten up” this season.

Go Play Outside When I was a kid, this was my mom’s favorite summertime slogan. Even though she may have just been trying to get me out of her hair, she was definitely on to something. The easiest way to absorb summer’s positivity is to simply embrace nature. According to the authors of the Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Health, exercising, working, walking or even just lazing around outside

6 Summer 2012 • Healthstyle Magazine™

has been referred to as “outdoor therapy” and can be extremely effective in treating patients who suffer from SAD. That’s reason enough to get outside and soak up some summer rays (after applying a generous amount of sunscreen, of course). Take the kids on a post-dinner walk, go to the zoo, stroll through the Desert Botanical Gardens, play a game of tag in your back yard or lounge by the pool. The leisurely activity and hearty dose of Vitamin D from the

sun will have you feeling lighter in no time. Create the Great Indoors I’m sure you’ve heard that if you surround yourself with positive things that you, too, will become more positive. It may sound cliché, but there’s some truth to that old adage and the best place to start is at home. Update your curtains to let the sunshine in. Use sheer fabrics, make sure your windows are sparkling

Mindful clean and remove any disorderly clutter that may block the natural light. Add a couple of small mirrors, glass vases, reflective candle holders or metal furniture frames to disperse the sunny glow throughout your main living areas. Add a few brightly colored throw pillows or picture frames. If you don’t have the extra cash to spend on a few seasonal garnishes, try rearranging your furniture. Space the pieces in a way that will allow the room to breathe better and remove bulky items such as heavy rugs and throws. Finish off your refurbished space with fresh flowers from the grocery store or even a few blossoms from your own back yard. Your welcoming new space is sure to invigorate and inspire. Schedule a Doctor’s Appointment Summer has a reputation for being the slowest or least productive season, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Use your seasonal downtime to take care of yourself and catch up on all of those nagging health items you know you shouldn’t ignore but keep putting off. Schedule your annual physical exam (that’s right, annual). Get a

skin cancer screening, especially since you’re probably spending more time outside. Visit your chiropractor for a tune up or to alleviate the headache you’ve had since the kids have been out of school. Venture out and try an alternative treatment you’ve been curious about, such as acupuncture or herb therapy. Many of these ancient remedies have been used to lighten up the body and soul. Chow Down One of the best ways to embrace a lighter new season is by shedding off the extra layers you accumulated during the colder months. Sure, hearty comfort food tastes great, but when our outfits start changing to accommodate the warmer season, it’s only fair that our diets should, too. Start by swapping potatoes for whole grains. Starchy spuds are beneficial when the weather is cooler and your body needs heavier meals that will burn energy slowly to maintain body heat, but during warmer months, you need quick, cool meals to beat the heat and keep you refreshed during outdoor activities. Grains like quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat can be

prepared ahead of time and made into incredible salads and stir-fry that will provide energy without making you feel weighed down and lethargic. Make cold soups instead of warm ones. In the summer, we crave cool, thirst-quenching foods and chilled consommés can accomplish both of those desires. Try making a spicy tomato gazpacho or a delicious spinach-based chowder. These cool soups will quench your thirst and give you the veggie boost your body needs. Swap calorie-laden ice cream for a healthier alternative. Cold desserts are always welcome when it’s hot outside, but ice cream can often cause bloating and other unwelcome side effects. Banana soft serve a wonderful substitution and I’m positive it’s the easiest recipe in the world. Drop two or three frozen bananas into your blender and mix until you’ve reached the consistency of frozen yogurt. Add a few walnuts for some fun texture and enjoy!

Healthy Appetite


We all know that drinking water is one of the best ways to stay healthy. Guzzling adequate amounts of agua every day can prevent dehydration, clean out our bodies, promote healing and even help avoid a few extra pounds. But with liquid temptations like sugary juices and frozen summer cocktails, sometimes it’s difficult to choose the clear, good-foryou stuff. Before you reach for a syrupy soft drink, try these fun, tasty, low-calorie alternatives to plain H2O and you’ll be rehydrated in a flash. 8 Summer 2012 • Healthstyle Magazine™

Healthy Appetite Citrus Citrus is much more than just a fancy cocktail garnish – it’s also a delicious vitamin-packed boost that can add some personality to your water. Slice up a small lemon, lime, orange (or all three) and drop the citrus circles into your glass of water. The tangy enhancement will add extra nutrition to your glass and the lipsmacking flavor will have you reaching for water throughout the day. Cucumber Mmm, the fresh, crisp taste of cucumber. Adding this antioxidantrich veggie to your water is guaranteed to have you consuming your recommended

ounces in no time. We suggest chopping a small cucumber into thin slices and placing them into your water pitcher. Wait an hour or two for your H2O to become infused with vegetable goodness and pour yourself an ice cold glass of refreshing cucumber water for a burst of summertime flavor. Delish!

Mint Leaves Move over, gum and candy! Now it’s water’s turn to harness the cool, clean power of mint. That’s right – mint leaves can be the perfect H2O additive to have your taste buds craving water in no time. So how do you create this flavorful concoction? Start by bruising about two cups of fresh mint leaves with the back of a spoon. Drop the crushed leaves into a gallon of fresh, cool water and chill the mixture in the refrigerator overnight. Strain the mint leaves out of the water when you’re ready for a drink and enjoy!

Hungry for Hydration? These water-packed foods can quench any thirst. Watermelon It’s not just a clever name. This fantastic fruit is 92% water. It’s also rich in Vitamin C and contains beta carotene, which promotes eye health. Eggs Don’t just limit eggs to breakfast because this protein-rich food also shells out some serious hydration. A whole egg is 74% water. Celery This super-veggie is 96% water and just two or three stalks can replenish some of your body’s much-needed nutrients including calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Summertime Salad Serves 8 125 calories per serving

There’s something magical about the combination of BBQ grills and summer. The warm air, slow-burning coals, char-grilled meat and smoky vegetables fuse together to become an intoxicating summertime cologne that brings people together. Whether you’re spending a leisurely afternoon by the pool or celebrating a patriotic holiday with friends and family, these fun, summer-themed recipes are the perfect way to please your taste buds and fuel your body. The Beer-B-Q Chicken is loaded with iron and protein and the grilled tomatoes in the Summertime Salad are heart healthy, low in cholesterol and can strengthen your bones. Even the Red, White and Blueberry Tart is packed with tasty berries that are rich with immune system-boosting antioxidants. Summertime never tasted so good! Directions: 1 Put the sliced cucumbers in a large bowl, sprinkle them with the salt, then set them aside for 30 minutes. Spread the cucumbers out on a double layer of paper towels, pat them dry, then put them back in the dried bowl. 2 Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and sugar in a small bowl, then pour the dressing over the cucumbers and toss until the slices are evenly coated. Cover the mixture and place it in the refrigerator.

Ingredients: 3 English cucumbers, seeded and sliced about ¼-inch thick ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus a little extra for brushing the tomatoes 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 ½ teaspoons sugar 3 large ripe tomatoes 2 tablespoons red onion, minced 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped Pepper ½ to ¾ cup crumbled feta

10 Summer 2012 • Healthstyle Magazine™

3 Prepare the grill for cooking. As the coals are heating, halve each tomato and scoop out the seeds. Slice a bit from the rounded end of each tomato half, so that it can sit flat. Brush the tomatoes with olive oil. 4 Grill the tomatoes (over the hottest part of the grill) until they’re lightly charred, about 60 to 90 seconds per side, turning once. Transfer the tomatoes to a plate to cool. 5 Coarsely chop the tomatoes into large chunks, then add them to the cucumbers, along with the onion, parsley, and pepper. Toss the ingredients to blend them evenly. Transfer the salad to a serving dish and top it generously with the feta.

Healthy Appetite Beer-B-Q Chicken Serves 6 173 calories per serving Ingredients: 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1 ½ teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon packed dark brown sugar 1 teaspoon ground cumin ½ teaspoon onion powder ½ teaspoon garlic powder ½ teaspoon ground chipotle chile ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1, 4-pound chicken 1, 12-ounce bottle beer, preferably pale ale or American lager, divided

Directions: 1 Preheat a gas grill (with all burners lit) to 400°F or build a fire in a charcoal grill and let it burn down to medium heat (about 400°F). 2 Combine paprika, oregano, salt, brown sugar, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chile and pepper in a small bowl. 3 Remove giblets from chicken (if included) and trim any excess skin. Loosen the skin over the breast and thigh meat. Rub the spice mixture under the skin onto the breast meat and leg meat, a little on the skin and inside the cavity. Tuck wings under the body and tie the legs together with kitchen string. 4 If using a gas grill, turn off one burner (leaving 1 to 2 burners lit, depending on your grill). If using a charcoal grill, move the coals to one side. Wearing an oven mitt, carefully place a drip pan under the grill rack on the unheated side. Place the chicken breast-side down on the rack over the pan. Pour half the beer into the cavity (it’s okay if some drips out into the drip pan). 5 Close the lid and roast undisturbed for 45 minutes. 6 Turn the chicken breast-side up. Pour the remaining beer into the cavity. Cover and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh without touching bone registers 165°F, 30 to 45 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board; let rest for 10 minutes before removing the string and carving. *Tip: Barbecuing poultry with the skin on helps prevent the meat from drying out. To keep calories and fat in check, remove the skin before serving.

Healthy Appetite Red, White and Blueberry Tart Serves 12 177 calories per serving Ingredients: Crust ½ cup walnuts, lightly toasted 1 cup graham cracker crumbs, preferably whole-wheat 1 large egg white 1 tablespoon butter, melted 1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil Pinch of salt Filling 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened ¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, preferably grade B, divided 2 cups fresh blueberries 4 strawberries, halved

Directions: 1 To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 325°F. 2 Coarsely chop walnuts in a food processor. Add graham cracker crumbs and process until the mixture looks like fine crumbs. 3 Whisk egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Add the crumb mixture, butter, oil and salt; toss to combine. Press the mixture into the bottom and ½ inch up the sides of a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Set the pan on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and slightly darker around the edges, about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. 4 To prepare filling: Beat cream cheese, sour cream and ¼ cup maple syrup in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. When the crust is cool, spread the filling evenly into it, being careful not to break up the delicate crust. Arrange blueberries and strawberry halves on the filling, pressing lightly so they set in. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup over the berries. Chill for at least 1 hour to firm up. *Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 1 day before serving. **Tip: To toast walnuts, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes. ***Note: To avoid trans fats, look for graham crackers without partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. To make crumbs, pulse graham crackers in a food processor or place in a large sealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. (You’ll need about 14 whole-wheat graham cracker squares to make 1 cup of crumbs.)

Weird Science

The ironman insider Product reviews and recommendations from marathoner and triathlete, ray Dean.

Should other training wristbands ‘watch out’ for the Garmin Forerunner 910XT?

It is commonly known that regularly mixing up your exercise routine helps you avoid plateaus, boosts your metabolism and adds some fun and excitement to what could otherwise become a dull and monotonous workout. As a triathlete, I am most interested in maximizing my swimming, biking and running performance. In order to properly train myself for upcoming events and make sure I’m getting the most out of my workouts, it’s important that I’m always shocking my body by alternating the intensity, elevation and distance of my exercise routines as often as I can. I’ve been in the market for a fitness watch that could help me monitor and plan for this type of flexibility and I was excited to test the

product that promises it all, the Garmin Forerunner 910XT.

While I instantly trusted the Garmin name, I was slightly skeptical about exactly how versatile the timepiece would be since it swore to deliver what other watches couldn’t. Did it live up to all of the hype? Let’s find out.

How does it Work? For open water and pool swimming, the 910XT is water resistant to 50m (164 ft). The Forerunner’s built-in GPS system has made this tool the first multi-sport watch to offer extensive swim metrics – including distance, stroke identification, stroke count and pool lengths. It can also be used to gauge other water sports, such as paddle boarding.

What is it? The Garmin Forerunner 910XT is the only all-inone, GPS-enabled wrist device that provides detailed swim metrics and tracks distance, pace, elevation and heart rate for running and cycling. This tool is geared toward athletes or anyone who is trying to monitor, track and analyze their fitness. It can be worn during outdoor sports such as hiking, skiing, paddle boarding or even indoor

On land, the 910XT offers many of its competitor’s features (capturing time, distance, speed and pace). But what it does differently is it incorporates a barometric altimeter for highly accurate elevation data, including ascent, descent and grade. You

can even set up vibration alerts to give a silent nudge when it’s time for a nutrition break or if you need a little helpful feedback to stay within range of your goals. Technical Details The trait that makes this product so special is its ability to utilize the personal data it’s collected from your workouts to plan and analyze every detail. If you want to brag about a particularly remarkable workout session, you have the ability to go viral on Facebook and Twitter or send fitness reports to your buddies or trainer via e-mail. When you purchase the Forerunner 910XT, you also have immediate, unlimited access to Garmin Connect (, a free online community that allows you to check

The most appealing part of the product is that through the use of ANT+ wireless technology that comes with the product, your workout data automatically transfers to your computer when in range. I found myself eager to look at the metrics immediately when I got home. As for charging your Gramin Forerunner, the battery boasts a 20-hour lifespan, though one independent reviewer found his lasted 55 continuous hours on varied settings. Buy It You can purchase the Forerunner 910XT instore at Best Buy or REI or online at for $399. If you’re willing to shell out some extra cash for the premium

The 210, 310XT and 410 models retail at $249 and the 110 model retails at $179, but be prepared to lose some of the more advanced features, such as the barometric altimeter, swim features and extended battery life that make the 910XT so special.

But what we don’t always think about is that this balmy, sunshiney season has a dark side. While we’re lounging around outside and taking advantage of the gifts the warm climate has to offer, we’re actually putting ourselves at risk – high risk – for a disease that could cost us our lives.

“ Hearing I had skin cancer really put things into perspective. It’s an eye opener.”

The Silent Killer Arizona has overwhelming skin cancer rates; the highest in the nation and the second highest in the world next to Australia. Skin cancer affects 30 percent of people over 50-years-old and millions of others each year. This disease is the number one cancer in females ages 20 to 30 and, According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, melanoma results in one death per hour and one in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. Skin cancer appears in multiple forms, with the three most common types being melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. Melanoma is the most malignant form of cancer because it grows quickly and can spread at rapid rates to internal organs such as your brain, liver and lymph nodes.

22 Summer 2012 • Healthstyle Magazine™

Basal and squamous cell carcinomas are both caused by excessive ultraviolet (UV) exposure from the sun or tanning beds and form on your most exposed areas, such as the face, neck, arms and hands. If caught early, these cancers can be surgically removed, but in advanced cases, treatment may be extremely painful and include chemotherapy – that is, if treatment is even an option. A deadly misconception is people often believe skin cancer is an “adult disease,” but for most, a large percentage of exposure to harmful UV rays may occur before the age of 18. Early exposure is not always easy to see with the naked eye, but it can have hazardous long-term effects on your skin. Many people believe having just one or only a few sunburns are trivial, especially when they’re young, but it really only takes one bad sunburn to increase your risk of skin cancer. Even routine activities such as driving, walking across a parking lot while running errands or even enjoying a cup of coffee on your patio in the morning can be harmful because sunlight doesn’t have to be direct to cause damage to your skin.

Does that mean you’re destined to develop skin cancer and that all hope is lost if you do? The simple answer is “no.” Skin cancer is preventable and with thousands of Arizonans at risk for this deadly disease every day, early detection and prevention could literally save your life. 46-year-old father of seven and dairy farmer, Kelly Moss, was one of the lucky ones. The Strong Survivor As a young boy, Moss spent every day feeding cows, stacking hay, driving tractors and helping his father run their family-owned business, Mountain Shadow Dairy in Litchfield Park, Arizona. When he grew up, not much changed except for the addition of his beautiful wife, Kathy, and their seven wonderful children. “They’re my reason for everything,” Moss said.

going – and I’m glad I did,” Moss said. “By my third or fourth visit, she found a couple of spots I didn’t even notice.” During the same skin exam, Dr. Johnston removed the suspicious lesions she found on Moss’ right arm and neck and tested them for cancer.

The spots she found were malignant melanoma and basal cell carcinoma. “Neither my wife or I noticed them. They didn’t look very big and I didn’t know how long they’d been there,” Moss said, “they were both less than one centimeter, but Dr. Johnston noticed them.” “When I found out how serious melanoma was, I was in shock,” Moss said. “I didn’t understand the gravity of the situation until Dr. Johnston explained how quickly it could spread and how dangerous it was.” Fortunately for Moss and his family, Dr. Johnston found his cancerous lesions early and was able to help eliminate them. “She removed some of the cancer right in the doctor’s office,” Moss

Dr. Johnston’s tips for a successful skin exam. 1. Get checked from head to toe. Even though it may feel awkward to get completely undressed, skin cancers can form in areas that are hard for most people to see on their own. 2. Make sure your doctor uses a dermascope. This hand-held microscope increases the sensitivity of the skin exam by allowing your doctor to see different features that are not visible to the naked eye alone. 3. Ask if your doctor has had additional training or education in skin cancer medicine. 4. Schedule a skin check every year. It could save your life.

Doctor’s Orders for himself, Moss takes prevention seriously. When he’s working on his farm, he now wears shirts with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating and applies sunscreen often. “Hearing I had skin cancer really put things into perspective,” he said. “It’s an eye opener.”

said, “but I had to see a specialist to get the rest of the cancer that had gone deeper into my skin tissue.” Unfortunately, Moss is just one of hundreds of skin cancer patients Dr. Johnston sees every year. “I find suspicious specimens more often than you’d think,” said Johnston. “Older patients tend to be more susceptive to skin cancer, but anyone can get it at any age.” Johnston’s expert advice to prevent skin cancer

is to simply schedule an annual skin exam. “It’s a shame,” she said. “This many people don’t have to get skin cancer because it’s preventable. Get your skin checked annually, cover up with a hat and don’t forget the sunscreen. Be diligent with prevention and don’t blow off a skin check. It only takes 15 minutes and it can literally save your life.” After hearing Dr. Johnston’s advice and experiencing skin cancer

Moss is cancer-free now and plans to stay that way. He gets his skin checked every three to six months in hopes that if it returns, he’ll be able to catch it early. “I just can’t risk it,” Moss said. “I learned the survival rate is only 25 percent if the cancer is more than one centimeter. I survived because we caught it early the first time around. I’m really lucky.” His advice to others: “Just because anyone can get skin cancer doesn’t mean they have to. Go in and have a screening. It’s not painful, it doesn’t take long and the risk of not getting checked is greater than anything.”

Dr. Johnston’s At-Home Skin Check It is important to examine your skin head-to-toe at least once every month. Look for new moles or freckles (especially after the age of 30) and warning signs in preexisting moles such as: • Asymmetry

• Elevated or raised moles

• Irregular or raised borders

• Irregular texture or scaly/crusty lesions

• Irregular coloring: darker than usual, purple, multicolor, spread of color or loss of color

• Moles that bleed or itch • Sores that do not heal

Doctor’s Orders

“I like being able to travel from one location to another and go wherever I’m needed. I can help more patients that way.” Joel Braun, M.D. Medical Doctor

There are thousands of reasons the task of going to the doctor has earned the reputation of being daunting and inconvenient. If you’re not feeling well on Monday, you’ll likely have to stay sick until Thursday when the doctor can finally fit you into their schedule.

“Inconvenience and confusion about next steps are the biggest things that keep people from following through with important tests, diet changes and treatment.” Berg may not be in the fashion industry, but his avant-garde ideas about health care led him to

How is all of that inconvenience, hassle and rushing around supposed to make you feel better? Deborah Brandon Photography

“Having multiple types of providers at my fingertips allows me to do what’s in the best interests of my patients and it helps them get better quicker. It’s all about the patients – not the doctors.” Robert Cucitrone, D.C. Doctor of Chiropractic

When you arrive at the clinic, you’ll be “greeted” by office staff who hide behind a sliding glass door and ask you to sit in an uncomfortable waiting room for sometimes an hour past your appointment time. Then, the doctor will give you a quick examination and may even refer you to another location outside of the office for a lab appointment or second opinion. How is all of that inconvenience, hassle and rushing around supposed to make you feel better? “It doesn’t,” says Dr. David Berg, CEO and founder of Arrowhead Health Centers (AHC).

create a string of multispecialty doctors’ offices in the greater-Phoenix area. From Surprise to Mesa, AHC has given Valley patients the ability to receive quality care from chiropractors, family practice doctors, pain management pros, state-of-the-art medical equipment and more under one roof. Since 1997, AHC’s team of medical professionals has been working hard to make receiving great health care easy, convenient and accessible for Arizonans. They’ve combined an array of professionals, tools, processes and ideas to

Doctor’s Orders create a new model for the way patients receive health care. This new model has been so successful, in fact, that AHC has become the only company of its kind in Arizona to earn a prestigious accreditation from the OsteoArthritis Centers of America and a Patient-Centered Medical Home Level 3 status from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). So how do they do it? These four ideas have helped generate what Berg has dubbed as “one-stop, patientcentered medical care.” New Trend #1: Feeling better before you even see the doctor. Tradition would have you scouring the phone

book and stressing over finding the right doctor, but Berg says that’s not the way to find the best health care provider(s) for your condition. “You shouldn’t have to feel pressured to find the professional for yourself when you’re not feeling well,” says Berg. “You should be able to call one place and have a knowledgeable scheduler match you to the right expert for your symptoms.” AHC believes the health care experience should begin as soon as you pick up the phone to make an appointment, which is why each office boasts an open front desk and lobby space equipped with smiling employees, extended appointment times (with early morning, late evening

There’s nothing convenient about driving across town and hopping from office to office to see all of your doctors. And if your providers aren’t communicating with one another, there

says Berg. “I thought, ‘why not apply the same concept to health care?’” AHC’s “onestop-shop” atmosphere brings chiropractors, physical therapists, pain management professionals and family practice doctors together under one roof and encourages open communication between all of the providers throughout the day. Each morning and afternoon, the AHC team gathers together for what they call a “Recovery Game Plan™ huddle.” During

An added bonus of this open forum between doctors is that they can refer to one another for additional care so patients are able to have most of their health concerns addressed in a single day instead of having to wait for a follow up appointment. New Trend #3: Technology at your doctor’s fingertips. For years, AHC has been combining technology with the belief that doctors and therapists should have everything they need to care for a patient quickly.

(needle guidance) and dermascopes (skin cancer detection). The AHC team also uses electronic medical records (EMR) to keep patient charts, medical histories and test results safe, secure and transferable between each Arrowhead Health Centers location. Not only does this tool provide patients with the freedom to visit the closest Arrowhead Health Centers clinic at any time, but it also means each doctor on the team can be educated about a patient’s medical history at the click of a mouse.

Arrowhead Health Centers was founded by David Berg, D.C. and Janice Johnston, M.D. in Glendale, Arizona in 1997. The couple came together in their belief that integrated medicine, outstanding customer experience and a multi-specialty approach to health care

Doctor’s Orders important person on his or her medical team,” says Berg, “and I think that entitles them to have much more say about their care than they typically have.” AHC allows patients to share their experience through online feedback forums, social media and a post-visit e-mail assessment called the

Net Promoter Survey. The clinics also have free patient education seminars and a monthly newsletter to keep patients informed and share feedback about what’s important to them. “I always thought health care should be a customer service industry,” says Berg. “And serving people

starts with listening to and engaging them by making their health care feel easier, more convenient, affordable and accessible.”

more clinics will trend in the same fashion? “I hope other offices will catch on and really start listening to what’s important to patients and their families,” says Berg. “Your health is simply too important not to take your business elsewhere if you’re not getting the total experience you want.”

Patients and providers alike have responded positively to AHC’s innovative vision of multi-specialty health care. Does that mean

15 Ways to Beat the Heat This Summer Has the steamy weather radiated you and your family into a dull lull? There’s no better way to snap out of summer boredom and distract yourself from the heat than to keep busy by staying happy and healthy. We’re sharing our secrets and showing you 15 ways to put an end to summer monotony once and for all.

Dive Into Summer Nothing makes you feel more like a kid than spending the day at an aquatic playground. There are three major water parks splashed throughout the Valley: Big Surf in Tempe, Wet n’ Wild in Phoenix and Sunsplash in Mesa. Keep an eye out for coupons from Living Social, Groupon or your favorite newspaper for special discounts. If you plan on taking the family or visiting often, call ahead to check on season passes or group discounts.


Show Some Skin To your doctor, that is. Chances are, you’ve already spent some time outside this year and with astronomic skin cancer rates in Arizona, it’s never too early to have your skin checked. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends seeing your physician at least once every year for a professional skin exam.


Get Fresh Did you know Arizona is agricultural hot spot? There are regular Farmers’ Markets located all over town, such as the Road Runner Park Market in North Phoenix (every Saturday from 7am – 11am) and the Carefree Farmers Market at the

Carefree Sundial (every Friday from 9am – 11am). You can stock up on fresh produce, browse local merchandise and taste all types of homegrown food products from local growers. Visit arizonafarmersmarkets. com for additional hours and locations.

Vitality chances are, they’ll need their sports clearance exam before the summer’s over. Not to mention, back-to-school checkups are often the only visits most kids and teenagers have with their doctor every year, so why not schedule it during your downtime this season?


Create Some Frozen Fun Hosting a pool party or a summer sleepover for the kids? Make a tasty, frozen treat that the kids (and you) will love. Mix up your favorite juice flavor, pour into ice cube trays, cover the tray

with foil and insert clean stirring sticks into each cube mold. Place in the freezer, wait a few hours and enjoy! If your party is for grownups only, try refreshing cocktail popsicles, instead. Same concept, just use your favorite adult libations in place of juice. Visit for recipes, such as Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour Popsicles or Honeydew Cucumber Margarita ice pops.

We showed you our Healthstyle, so now it’s your turn! We asked: “What small changes are you making to live a happier, healthier life?” And you said…

“I’ve started going for walks with my family every night after dinner. I also recently purchased some bikes and a baby travel hitch so that my wife and son can come along as well. It’s great to spend that time with my family and it feels great knowing we’re doing something healthy and active.” -Ryan A.

“I am a diabetic and I have a son who, I worry, may also become a diabetic one day. To help me worry less, I’ve started walking with my boyfriend, our two boys and our puppy three to four nights a week. We have races with the boys and take a soccer ball to the park right down the street. We eat healthier and I let the boys help me with dinner so they can feel like they’re making the right choices and doing something good. They are only four and five so letting them help prepare healthy meals gives them a great start early in life.” -Sara C.

“My friend Annette and I have started working out in my pool a couple of days every week. My hips are not what they used to be and it’s great to have my buddy keep me motivated and make it fun. We are also committed to eating healthier and drinking more water. Another friend gave me the idea of buying a large water bottle and keeping it next to me all day so I know how much I need to drink. Wordsearch My goal is to kick my soda habit and replace it with water. This summer is the start for two friends and co-workers to be the best they can be!” -Dianne S.
