Inhale again and on the exhale bend at the hip, lead with your heart, and extend your spine, head to your knees. Keep extending through the top of your head and on an inhale lift up, slightly rounding the back to the first postion and repeat.

Meet Paul Chang, DO who has joined Seacoast Orthopedics Associates in Newburyport.

hey hurt, they pound, they swell, and they are unsightly. Roughly one in two adults over the age of 50 suffers with the pain of varicose veins. Varicose veins form when a vein allows blood to flow backward and collect, resulting
in an enlarged, swollen varicose vein. David Swierzewski, MD performs the innovative VNUS™ Closure procedure to remove varicose veins. “During the VNUS™ procedure a thin catheter is inserted into the vein,” says Dr. Swierzewski. “The tip of the catheter heats the vein and seals it shut.

normal activities within 2 days with pain free legs.” GENERAL SURGERY Dr. Swierzewski is also one of the general surgeons at Anna Jaques conducting surgery with high definition equipment in fully computerized operating suites. “In the majority of cases we use a minimally invasive approach to surgery using tiny surgical incisions,” says Dr. Swierzewski. “This significantly reduces a patient’s pain and shortens recovery time.”
Patients can drive themselves home and generally return to normal activities within 2 days with pain free legs.
WOUND HEALING In the Anna Jaques Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center, patients who suffer with wounds that have not healed in 30 days receive specialized care. Dr. Swierzewski is one of the specialty trained physicians in the wound center. “Our Wound Healing center has one of the highest healing rates in the nation. We have two hyperbaric chambers, a certified hyperbaric technician and specialty trained nurses who treat our patients,” he said. TRAUMA SURGERY Dr. Swierzewski is also one of the trauma surgeons in the Level III Trauma Center at Anna Jaques Hospital. “In the trauma center we stabilize patients and do everything possible to save their lives,” said Dr. Swierzewski. “A good example is a patient who was involved in a severe car accident and suffered swelling of the brain, a severe and potentially fatal condition. High winds prevented her from being airlifted to Boston and drive time traffic made an ambulance ride problematic. I performed emergency Neurosurgery to relieve pressure in her brain, and when she was stable, we sent her to a tertiary care hospital in Boston. Three months later she was out of rehabilitation and home, functioning fully. I am proud that the Anna Jaques Trauma Center team saved her life.”
Dr. Swierzewski is trained to conduct the VNUS™ procedure at Anna Jaques Hospital. He is in private practice at Atlantic Surgical Associates located in the Doctors’ Office Building adjacent to Anna Jaques Hospital. He is a board certified surgeon and a Fellow of the American Board of Surgeons. To schedule an appointment with During the VNUS™ procedure a thin disposable catheter is inserted into the vein.

Unlocking the Mysteries of the Restaurant Menu… (And other tips to avoid sabotaging your healthy eating plan!) It is possible to eat well and avoid “food sabotage” when you eat out, as long as you know how to decode the menu. The majority of restaurants want to please their diners, so don’t hesitate to ask for exactly what you want. For example, if you know you want broiled salmon and rice ask the waiter for it, and don’t bother to open the menu. DE-CODING RESTAURANT MENUS:
REMEMBER PORTION CONTROL:
Fried, au gratin, crispy, scalloped,
divided in half before it is served to you,
When you order, ask that the meal be
pan-fried, sautéed, buttered, creamed
1/2 on your plate, 1/2 in a carry out
or stuffed = high fat, high calories.
Steamed, broiled, baked, grilled, poached or roasted = low fat, reduced calories.
SAL AD BARS: Choose fresh greens, raw vegetables,
ASK YOUR SERVER: To point out the healthiest choices on the menu and to describe how dishes are prepared. To omit dressings or sauces, or serve them on the side so you control the portions. For healthy substitutions choose: A baked potato instead of French fries. A salad, fruit, or vegetables instead of cole slaw.
fresh fruits, and garbanzo beans. Use reduced-fat, low-fat, light or fat-free dressings. Avoid cheeses, marinated salads, pasta salads, bacon bits, olives and other salty foods. DESSERT: Choose fresh fruit, fruit ice, sherbet, gelatin or angel food cake for dessert. Use fat-free or 1% milk in your coffee instead of cream or half-and-half.
In our next issue we will discuss finding healthy choices at fast food restaurants. (Believe it or not!)

Aging Can Increase Your Risk for Type 2 Diabetes, But You Can Do Something About It. If you are age 60 or older and overweight you are at risk for type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. However, you can take small steps each day to prevent or delay the onset of the disease. The most important thing you can do is to lose a modest amount of weight (10 to 14 pounds for a 200-pound person) by moving more and making healthy food choices. FIND AN ACTIVITY YOU ENJOY: Walk in safe places, such as indoor or outdoor walking paths, a shopping mall, or a community center. Dancing is also a fun way to be active. Get off the couch, turn on the music, and move. Add a little more activity each day until you reach at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week EASY WAYS TO ADD STEPS! • Take the stairs instead of the elevator, as many flights as you can. • Walk around the house while you talk on the phone. • Park the car farther away from stores, movie theaters, and your office. CHOOSE HEALTHY FOODS: • Whole grain foods such as whole wheat bread, crackers, cereals, brown rice, oatmeal, and barley. • A variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. • Small portions of heart-healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils. • Low fat or skim milk, yogurt, and cheese.
FOLLOW THESE TIPS: • When eating meat, poultry, or fish, one serving should be the size of a deck of cards. • Choose fish and lean meat and poultry (without the skin). • Choose foods that have been baked or broiled instead of fried. • Limit sweets and desserts. They usually contain a lot of fat as well as sugar. Have a small serving, and not every day.
Remember: Medicare offers a free blood glucose test for people at risk for diabetes. Visit www.medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE to learn more. It may not be easy to make these lifestyle changes, but you can do it!

Easy Ways to Eat Five Servings of Fruits and Vegetables Every Day (And why you should!)
Are these the promises of a snake oil salesman in the old West? No, these are the benefits of making fruits and vegetables the mainstay of your daily diet. Studies show that the people who eat more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet are more likely to reduce the risk of many serious health problems, absorb more vitamins and nutrients, and control their weight. Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories and high in fiber. It may seem like a chore to incorporate the recommended five (that’s 5!) daily servings of fruits and vegetables into your daily meals, but it is fairly

easy to do. And, making small changes in your eating habits can make a big difference in your health.
Think about it this way. • One serving of produce is one cup of raw leafy greens – easy to put in a sandwich. • One-half cup of fresh, frozen or canned fruits is one serving – easy to put in yogurt or on your morning cereal. • One-half cup of vegetables is one serving – throw them on top of a salad, or in a bowl for snacks. • One medium apple is one serving of fruit and so is 3/4 cup of 100% juice.
Here are some other ideas on how to incorporate produce into your daily meals: • Buy individually packaged servings of fruits and vegetables or create your own at home so you can eat healthy snacks on the go! • Have breakfast at home and include fruit, whole grains and skim milk. • Try to prepare dinners that are heavy on vegetables. If you are pressed for time, use ready-to-eat packaged salads or stir-fry mixtures. Prepare extra portions and freeze them in labeled containers so you can use them the next time you need to prepare a quick meal.
Make your liquids count. • Instead of soda, drink 100% fruit or vegetable juice each day. • Add zip to juice by mixing it with club soda. • Make fruit smoothies. Combine 100% juice, fruit, and ice in a blender and you will quickly get 2-3 servings of fruit.
Consider this as just one more way to Go Green (or red, or yellow, or orange)! Information courtesy of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)

servings of fruits and vegetables. What is a parent to do?
(It’s all about making it fun.) Start their day off with fruit. • Make a smoothie by blending yogurt, fruit, and ice (or frozen fruit for thickening). Smoothies can contain 2-3 servings of fruit for each child. • If your children love cereal, slice fruit into their bowls. • Always serve 100% juice to children. Three-quarters of a cup is a full serving!
Keep fruits & vegetables in plain view. • When children snack they reach for what is handy. Keep a bowl of fruit on the counter or store baggies full of cut vegetables in the refrigerator. • Pack fruits and vegetables in your child’s lunch box each day. It encourages healthy snacking.
Create interesting snack pairings:. • If your child won’t eat celery, put peanut butter on it. • Serve carrots with light ranch dressing as a dip. • Pair yogurt with fruit. • Air popped popcorn is a great snack.
Engage your children in the growing of vegetables. • Take your children to “Pick Your Own” farms so they can explore a garden and pick fresh produce. • Consider helping your children to plant their own garden. If they plant their own vegetables, they may be more interested in eating them.
Research shows that it takes children an average of 10 tries to develop a taste for foods that they don’t like initially. Don’t be discouraged and don’t give up!
