Dixon Rehabilitation awarded 2017 Bronze Quality Award Submitted by Dixon – Health Provider Director 2017 - 2018

Many people in Dixon think they know Dixon Rehabilitation and Health Care Center (DRHCC). When asked, they often respond, “Sure, that’s the old Lee County Home. My grandparents lived there”. Times have changed, and so have we. Today, DRHCC is owned and operated by Tutera Senior Living and Health Care, which has a strong history of excellence in health care. DRHCC has achieved the rare designation of being a 5 Star quality rated center by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Systems. (www.Medicare.gov). CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify

areas about which you may want to ask questions.

of 16 communities in the entire state of Illinois to receive this award.

Dixon Rehabilitation and Health Care Center has also been recognized as a 2017 recipient of the Commitment to Quality Award-Bronze for our dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. This distinction is one of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, the leading association for long term and post-acute care.

Providing medical, dental, and behavioral health services Submitted by Whiteside County Health Clinic

The Whiteside County Community Health Clinic, located at 1300 W. 2nd Street, Rock Falls, Illinois, provides medical, dental, and behavioral health services to our community. Our dental clinic is here to serve people of all ages by providing services like dental cleanings, extractions, and fillings. Studies have shown that oral health is integral to your overall health. The mouth is directly connected to the body by the bloodstream and the digestion system. The mouth naturally contains bacteria that aid in the digestion of food as well as protect the teeth and gums. However, there is also bacteria in your mouth that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Not practicing oral health has been associated with cardiovas-

cular disease caused by inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause. Endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of the heart, has also been linked to poor oral hygiene. In order to practice good oral hygiene, the American Dental Association recommends that you: brush your teeth twice a day, use a proper toothbrush, practice good techniques, keep your toothbrush clean, and know when to replace your toothbrush. The American Dental Association also says that daily flossing is an integral part in maintaining good oral hygiene. Because oral health is integral to your overall health, our dental clinic works in close relationship with our medical clinic, which offers primary care services. The Community Health Clinic also offers counseling services in our behavioral health clinic.

It is our providers’ policy to treat all patients with respect and dignity and not to discriminate with regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, or disability. The Whiteside County Community Health Clinic is a federally funded clinic that accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and Third Party Payers. Our Clinic offers a sliding fee scale, meaning patients pay what they can based off of their income. No one will be refused care based on their inability to pay. We accept walk-ins, however; appointments are preferred. If you have any question about the services that we offer, or you would like to schedule an appointment, call 815-626-2230.

According to the American Cancer Society, certain viruses, bacteria and parasites are now recognized as risk factors for cancer. While the percentage of cancers linked to infections is higher in developing countries than it is in first world countries such as the United States, between 15 and 20 percent of cancers across the globe can be connected to infections. Infections can increase a person’s risk of developing cancer in various ways. In some instances, a virus can insert its own genes into an otherwise healthy cell, causing the cell to grow out of control.

Selenium is a trace mineral that can be very potent in cancer prevention. According to Susan G. Komen, selenium helps antioxidants work more effectively and may reduce cancer incidence as a result. Selenium also may kill cancer cells and help normal cells repair their DNA. According to a Harvard study of more than 1,000 men with prostate cancer, those with the highest levels of selenium in their blood were 40 percent less likely to develop advanced disease over the next 10-plus years than men with the lowest levels of selenium in their blood. In addition, data from a five-year study from researchers at Cornell University discovered 200 micrograms of selenium per day resulted in 63 percent fewer prostate tumors and a 39 percent overall decrease in cancer deaths, among other benefits. Selenium is found in Brazil nuts, yellowfin tuna, halibut, sardines, and many other foods.

In other cases, infections cause long-term inflammation in a particular area of the body, leading to changes in the affected cells and in immune cells that are nearby. Those changes can eventually lead to cancer. Certain infections can compromise the immune system to such a great extent that it is no longer capable of fully protecting the body from some cancers. While infections can increase a person’s risk for cancer, the ACS notes that many people who develop the types of infections that have been linked to cancer do not ultimately receive a cancer diagnosis.

Knowledge to save lives. Location to save time. Deciding where to seek cancer treatment can be difficult and stressful. Northern Illinois Cancer Treatment Center knows this can be a confusing, distressing time for those newly diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends. In addition to our exceptional staff and treatment offerings, another benefit of the center has been that patients who are prescribed radiation treatment do not have to travel to Rockford or the Quad Cities for their treatment. Our close location has helped reduce patient stress that surfaces as a result of frequent travel. Situated conveniently between Dixon and Sterling on Illinois Route 2, Northern Illinois Cancer Treatment Center has the technology to heal while our caring staff focuses on you and your specific needs.

5 Unexpected Benefits of Physical Activity You know the obvious benefits of working out – losing weight and lowering risk for disease among the most well-known, but there are plentiful day-to-day benefits to enjoy as a result of being active! Let’s take a look. 1. Happier Moods Nothing will get you out of a funk faster than just five minutes of exercise! Any form of physical activity releases endorphins in the brain, creating strong feelings of happiness and euphoria. Consistent exercise alleviates symptoms of depression as well. Not only will you feel healthy and confident, you’ll have the happy brain chemicals to match.

4. Reduce Stress Levels & Anxiety Between work and family time, many suffer from high stress levels. A busy schedule is a logical excuse to skip a work out, but physical activity actually helps alleviate stress! Exercise increases the body’s ability to handle stress – through producing higher levels of norepinephrine, a helpful chemical that regulates areas of the brain that send stress signals. The more you train your body with the physical stress of exer-

2. Better Sleep Quality Ever toss and turn for hours with an endless stream of thoughts and worries? Physical activity raises the body’s core temperature, and after 5-6 hours post-workout, the decreased core temperature signals the body to sleep. Studies show that consistent exercise results in not only less time to fall asleep and sounder sleep cycles, but also less daytime drowsiness!

3. Improved Concentration & Creativity

cise, the better it responds to emotional stress.

5. Maintain Mental Fitness Through aging, our brainpower decreases and the brain actually grows smaller. Mental decline can start as early as 24 years of age. A study following an active and inactive group of 70-year-olds showed that after three years, the group who exercised consistently had less brain shrinkage than the inactive group. Physical activity engages the entire body, and a healthier cardiovascular system means the heart is better able to circulate blood to all parts of the body – even in those older years!

In order to remain active in life, it is important to build an early understanding of the benefits of exercise. Many underprivileged kids are not even exposed to physical activity, because their families can’t afford to let them play or their youth programs do not have adequate equipment resources. Good Sports is committed to helping these kids play and be active, so they too can experience these benefits!

Foods that may help fight cancer (MCC)

People concerned about their cancer risk may find that switching their diets can do a world of good. Certain foods may reduce cancer risk, according to various cancer experts, including the MD Anderson Cancer Center. In addition, some foods might increase a person’s risk of developing cancer. Knowing what to put on the table come breakfast, lunch and dinner can go a long way toward reducing one’s cancer risk. Some foods show cancer-fighting properties, although it is impossible to currently say one food or another can actually stop cancer from developing. Studies have shown that diets filled with colorful fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of developing cancer, heart disease and

diabetes. Cancer Research UK points out that some foods, such as red meat and salt-preserved foods, can increase a person’s risk of developing some cancers, while vegetables, fruits and foods high in fiber have the opposite effect. A comprehensive review of thousands of studies on physical activity, diet and weight conducted for the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research found that plant-based foods are the best at fighting cancer. Broccoli, berries and garlic showed some of the strongest tendencies to prevent cancer. According to research associates at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, a variety of chemicals from plants known as phytochemicals protect cells from harmful compounds in food and in the environment. Phytochemicals prevent cell damage and mutations. When making their grocery lists, people who want to eat healthy and lower their cancer risk can include as many of these foods as possible. • Garlic: Studies suggest that garlic can reduce the incidence of stomach cancer by attacking bacteria associated with some ulcers and belly cancers. Sulfur

compounds in the food may stimulate the immune system’s natural defenses against cancer and could reduce inflammation and tumor growth. • Broccoli: Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage and kale contain glucosinolates. These are phytochemicals that produce protective enzymes that activate in the intestines. One particular compound, sulforaphane, is strongest and found in broccoli. Protective properties are highest in raw or steamed broccoli. • Blueberries: Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants neutralize the unstable compounds, called free radicals, that can damage cells and lead to cancer. • Tomatoes: The red, rich coloring of tomatoes comes from lycopene. In laboratory tests, lycopene has stopped cancer cells, including breast, lung, and endometrial cancers, from growing. Researchers speculate that lycopene protects cells from damage that could lead to cancer by boosting the immune system.

Benefits of Massage

Massage Therapy Relieves Stress massageenvy.com

Stress is universal, and it’s not always bad. Whenever you jump to catch a badly thrown ball, feel especially energetic before an important meeting, or hit the brakes in time to avoid a car accident, stress is doing its job. The adrenaline boosting your heart rate and the cortisol boosting your blood sugar, while diverting energy away from your digestive system and immune responses, are exactly what prehistoric humans needed to fight or flee attackers. However, when there’s never any relief from stress, the sustained fight-or-flight response can cause problems. In fact, WebMD warns that constant stress actually becomes “distress -- a negative stress reaction. Distress can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases.” BEHAVIOR CHANGES Angry outbursts Drug or alcohol abuse Over- or under-eating Social withdrawal Tobacco use MOOD CHANGES Anxiety Irritability or anger Lack of motivation or focus Restlessness Sadness or depression BODY CHANGES Chest pain Fatigue Headache Muscle tension or pain Sex drive Sleep Stomach upset

Massage Therapy and Stress

Benefits of Massage Therapy for Stress

Virtually every symptom listed by the American Psychological Association can benefit from massage. Research has shown that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins, your body’s natural “feel good” chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome.

Taking care of your body should be at the top of your priorities. By adding therapeutic massage to your routine now, you’ll feel, look and simply be healthier far into the future. In fact, stress relief alone can improve your vitality and state of mind. So what better way to prep for a long, happy life than a relaxing, therapeutic massage?

In fact, stress relief is one of the first benefits that come to mind when thinking of massage therapy. It’s also a key component for anyone trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Clinical studies show that even a single 1 ½-hour session can significantly lower your heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels -- all of which explain why massage therapy and stress relief go hand-in-hand.

If you’re looking to add stress-relieving massage to your wellness program, a Massage Envy membership can be a powerful ally when combating daily pressures and anxiety. In addition to stress relief, ongoing massage therapy can reduce pain, increase energy levels and improve overall physical and mental performance. Our experienced, professional therapists at Massage Envy locations nationwide customize every massage (and stress relief) session to address your individual needs.

How women can protect against osteoporosis (MCC)

this potentially debilitating disease.

A bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone or both, osteoporosis can be debilitating. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is responsible for two million broken bones each year, a figure that experts predict with rise to three million by 2025.

• Include ample calcium and vitamin D in your diet. The NOF notes that calcium and vitamin D are both vital to building strong, dense bones when you’re young, and both calcium and vitamin D keep bones strong and healthy as the body ages. Women age 50 and younger need 1,000 milligrams of calcium each day, while those 51 and older need 1,200 milligrams each day. Calcium-rich foods include dairy products like low- or nonfat milk, yogurt and cheese. Women age 50 and younger need between 400 and 800 international units (IU) of vitamin D each day, while those age 50 and older need between 800 and 1,000 IU each day. The body can get vitamin D from sunlight and supplements or multivitamins. Vitamin D is naturally available in just a few foods, such as fatty fish like wild-caught salmon or tuna.

While anyone can suffer from osteoporosis, women are more likely than men to develop the disease. Studies suggest that while up to one in four men age 50 and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis, one in two women age 50 and older are likely to suffer such a fate. The NOF notes that osteoporosis is often referred to as a silent disease, with many people not even realizing they have it until they suffer a fracture. Because of the silent nature of osteoporosis and their increased vulnerability to it, women may want to take the following measures to protect themselves against

• Include weight-bearing and musclestrengthening exercises in your workout routine. Weight-bearing and musclestrengthening exercises help women

build and maintain bone density. Weight-bearing exercises include dancing, high-impact aerobics, jogging/ running, and tennis, among others. Muscle-strengthening activities include weightlifting and elastic band exercises. The NOF notes that certain positions in exercises such as yoga and pilates may not be safe for people with osteoporosis or those at increased risk of broken bones. Speak to a physical therapist about which positions or exercises to avoid. • Pay attention to the beverages you drink. It’s not just the foods you eat that can help or hurt you in the fight against osteoporosis. Heavy consumption of alcohol can contribute to bone loss, while drinks that contain caffeine, including coffee, tea and sodas, can decrease calcium absorption and contribute to bone loss as well. Drink alcohol and caffeinated beverages in moderation. Women are more vulnerable to osteoporosis than men. Learn more about the disease at www.nof.org.

Certain types of exercise, including dancing, may help women protect their bones against osteoporosis.

Understanding protein shakes (MCC)

Protein powder shakes once were consumed almost exclusively by professional body builders or gym rats looking to increase their muscle mass. But long gone are the days of finding protein shake supplies in specialty fitness stores. Nowadays protein shakes are mainstream and big business for the fitness and diet industry. Although protein shakes are not a magic solution for six-pack abs or overnight weight loss, they can — when used correctly — make a healthy addition to a fitness and nutrition regimen. With that said, they may not be right for everyone. But it’s important for individuals to weigh the pros and cons of protein products and work with their physicians to find the right regimen for their age, gender, body type, and desired goals. Protein shakes have a lot of positive attributes. Convenient and portable, protein shakes are formulated with readily available, highly digestible protein to fuel the body post-workout. Protein is essential for building muscle and overall body strength and is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. It also helps make hormones, enzymes and other body chemicals. Protein shakes deliver whey or casein protein in a convenient way. And because protein shakes tend to be concentrated, many people can consume the recommended level of protein for their activity type without having to eat many calorie-laden meals.

Shakes also can be filling and help people feel satiated longer. Some people substitute protein shakes for meals once per day, eliminating a potentially calorie-laden meal in favor of a lowcalorie shake. While protein shakes can be beneficial, the International Society of Sports Nutrition recommends that those who exercise should try to reach their protein requirements via whole foods. Protein shakes are not complete meals; therefore, they may create nutritional deficits if they are routinely used as meal substitutes.

The Mayo Clinic offers that protein shakes often fall short of supplying significant amounts of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. They’re also generally missing naturally occurring fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals. Protein shakes may be flavored with artificial ingredients or sweeteners which can be fine when consumed occasionally, but may not be recommended as a long-term meal replacement. Too much protein may not be a good thing, either. The U.S. Department of Health recommends that adults should not consume more than twice the recommended daily intake of protein, which is 55.5 g for men and 45 g for women. Protein shakes often have 20 to 40 g of protein per serving. So it’s easy to see how consumers of protein shakes may consume more than their recommended amount of protein. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, consistently exceeding daily protein requirements can lead to weight gain, high blood cholesterol, an elevated risk for heart disease, and kidney complications. Also, The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine states that consuming too much protein can raise a person’s risk of developing cancer, osteoporosis and kidney stones. Protein shakes are convenient forms of a nutrient that active bodies need. When used in moderation and as part of an overall healthy eating plan, they should be safe. But it’s important to discuss any dietary and exercise concerns with a doctor before making drastic lifestyle changes.

Safeguard your eyes against computer vision syndrome (MCC)

What are the symptoms of CVS?

Technology has simplified life in so many ways. Thanks to their tablets and smartphones, many people now have a wealth of information at their disposal 24

No two individuals are the same, and some people who spend significant amounts of time may never develop CVS. But those who do may experience the following symptoms.

hours a day, seven days week.

• Eyestrain: When people spend ample time staring at screens, the muscles of

because the brightness and contrast of a screen can produce an indirect glare that’s especially hard on the eyes. • Dry eyes: People do not blink as often when staring at screens as they do when they are not looking at screens. As a result, people are vulnerable to dry eyes when staring at screens, as blinking is one of the ways the eyes replenish moisture. Can CVS be prevented? While some people may be inclined to accept CVS as a side effect of living in the 21st century, there are ways to prevent CVS. • Take frequent breaks. The AOA recommend that people alleviate digital eye strain by following the 20-20-20 rule. This rule advises taking 20 second breaks to stare at something 20 feet away every 20 minutes.

Computers, tablets and smartphones can now be seen just about everywhere, so it’s no wonder that studies have shown that as much as 90 percent of computer users have reported symptoms of computer vision syndrome, or CVS. Sometimes referred to as “digital eye strain,” CVS is, according to the American Optometric Association, an umbrella term used to describe a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer use. Manhattan Vision Associates notes that such problems can arise in people who spend two or more hours daily in front of a screen, a qualifier that means just about anyone, from working professionals to children, is susceptible to CVS.

their inner eyes can strain and tighten and cause eye irritation. This can result in fatigue and pain. • Blurred vision: Blurred vision can compromise a person’s ability to see small details. That loss of sharpness can make it hard to focus on a screen for a significant amount of time. In addition, vision can blur as people go back and forth between their keyboards and screens or multiple screens, as many people do while simultaneously working on a computer and using their smartphones. • Headaches: Many people develop headaches after staring at screens for prolonged periods of time. That’s

• Reposition your computer screen. The AOA notes that the optimal location for computer screens is between 15 and 20 degrees below eye level, or about four to five inches, as measured from the center of the screen. In addition, position the screen so it is between 20 and 28 inches from your eyes. • Avoid glare. Computer screens also should be positioned to avoid glare from lighting and windows. Draw blinds or drapes if sun is shining in on the screen, and opt for low wattage light bulbs in desk lamps. • Blink more. Make a concerted effort to blink more throughout the day so your eyes remain as moist as possible. The average time people spend staring at screens continues to rise, making CVS a legitimate concern for adults and children alike. Learn more about CVS and how to prevent it at www.aoa.org.

7 Ways to Prevent Cavities Tips to Avoid the Dental Drill

Do you want to visit the dentist and get a clean bill of health each time? Learning how to prevent cavities will go a long way towards ensuring you don’t need to come back and get a filling. The tooth decay that leads to cavities occurs when the bacteria in your mouth form a sticky plaque on your teeth. When you eat or drink, they use the sugars in the food and one of the byproducts is acid. The sticky plaque holds this acid against your teeth where it attacks your tooth enamel, leading to cavities.

1. Brush Your Teeth In the fight against cavities, it is essential that you brush your teeth properly at least twice a day with a toothpaste containing fluoride.​You can use a regular toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. Be sure to brush all sides of your teeth: front, back, and top. Brushing your teeth removes the plaque, but it will form again in a few hours, so you have to keep doing brushing.

2. Floss or Clean Between Your Teeth Daily Food debris gets caught in between our teeth when you eat. If the debris is not removed, it can lead to cavities. Flossing or using an interdental cleaner every day is the best way to remove food debris from in between the teeth.

3. Eat Healthy Proper nutrition plays an important role in good dental health. Eating nutritional snacks and limiting the amount of sugary drinks will help to prevent plaque from forming on the teeth. Drink water instead. Don’t make a habit of having frequent sugary snacks, including hard candy and others that contain sugar.

4. Visit Your Dentist and Dental Hygienist Many cavities can only be detected by a dentist or a dental X-ray. Visiting your dentist for regular check ups and cleanings are a key factor in preventing

cavities and staying on top of good oral hygiene. You may also want to discuss with your dentist whether you should use supplemental fluoride to strengthen your teeth. The dental hygienist can give you tips for brushing and flossing so you will know that you are doing it correctly

5. Have Sealants Placed Dental sealants are a protective coating that is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant protects the tooth from getting a cavity by shielding against bacteria and plaque. Sealants are more common in children because of the new growth of permanent teeth, however, sealants can benefit adults to.

6. Use a Mouthrinse

7. Chew (Sugarless) Gum

There are several antimicrobial mouth rinses on the market that have been clinically proven to reduce plaque, such as Listerine or Crest Pro Health. Rinsing with one of these mouth rinses after brushing or eating can aid in cavity prevention.

Believe it or not, chewing certain sugarless gums can actually help to prevent cavities by increasing the flow of saliva in your mouth. In 2007, the American Dental Association awarded their Seal of Acceptance to Wrigley’s Orbit, Eclipse and Extra chewing gums for helping

to prevent cavities. Look for the Seal of Acceptance on other sugar free gum, including Bazooka Sugar Free Bubble Gum. Now you have an excuse for blowing bubbles. Source: Cavities. American Dental Association. http:// www.mouthhealthy.org/en/az-topics/c/cavities.

Nurse Aide Training Program

(MCC) The healthcare community is increasingly pointing to sugar as one of the biggest contributors to the obesity epidemic that has affected North America. More so than fats, sugar may contribute to a number of conditions that affect overall health. The average American eats between 150 and 170 pounds of refined sugars per year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. Approximately 50 percent of U.S. adults drink one sugary beverage per day, and nearly 63 percent of children between the ages 2 and 19 consume at least one sugar-sweetened beverage per day according to a study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Sugar occurs naturally in various foods, but added sugar, sometimes refered to as “refined sugar,” is turning up in many places, increasing the average person’s sugar intake as a result. The World Health Organization’s official nutrition advisors state that only 5 percent of one’s daily calorie intake should consist of sugars. This equates to approximately 30 grams per day. Children should have less — no more than 19 to 24 grams per day, depending on their ages. For those who think avoiding a slice of cake or skipping soft drinks is enough, consider these somewhat hidden sources of sugar, according to the health experts at Prevention. • Barbecue sauce: Grilling time means foods laden with flavorful barbecue sauce. Many barbecue sauces contain up to 13 grams of sugar per two tablespoons. • Fruit-flavored yogurt: Eating yogurt can be a healthy part of a diet, but not when it is full of sugar. One container of fruit yogurt may contain up to 19 grams of sugar. • Granola bars: These convenient snacks can pack a sugary punch. One bar can boast 12 grams of sugar.

• Salad dressing: Dousing healthy salads with dressing may increase caloric intake and sugar consumption. French, Russian and Thousand Island dressings, for example, often have high amounts of sugar per serving size — some as many as 9 to 10 grams per serving. • Frozen foods: In addition to high levels of sodium (used as a preservative), frozen entrees may have as many as 30 to 40 grams of added sugar per serving. • Energy drinks: The pick-me-up energy drinks provide is largely fueled by sugar and caffeine. Some of these drinks can have a whopping 83 grams of sugar. Reading product labels is the easiest way to see how much sugar is lurking in foods. While not all sugar is bad, and naturally occurring sugar-based carbohydrates can help supply ready energy to active muscles, most sugar is made of empty calories that can pack on the pounds. According to Dr. Pamela Peeke, author of “The Hunger Fix,” refined sugar also can cause cells to age more quickly and lead to excessive inflammation, which increases one’s risk for many diseases.

Fighting fatigue after surviving cancer (MCC)

Upon being diagnosed with cancer, men and women often understand they’re facing an uphill battle against the disease. But few may know what to expect after successful treatment. While the cancer might be gone, some unfortunate side effects may linger. One such side effect is fatigue. According to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, some cancer survivors report feeling tired or worn out even after their treatment has ended. Doctors know that fatigue during treatment can be caused by a host of factors, including the therapy itself. But researchers remain uncertain regarding the cause of post-treatment fatigue. Such fatigue can be especially disheartening, as many people who just survived cancer have a renewed vigor for life and don’t want to be affected by feelings of exhaustion. Fighting fatigue after cancer treatment requires the help of a physician. But because no two patients are the same, survivors may need to figure out what works best for them as they look to overcome feelings of fatigue after successful cancer treatments. • Speak with a physician. Physicians might be able to help cancer survivors overcome their post-treatment fatigue by recommending alternatives to medications that might be compromising their energy levels. Doctors may also help patients design diets that can boost their energy levels, while recommending they avoid certain foods that might have the opposite effect. • Monitor energy levels and plan accordingly. Some cancer survivors may

Cancer survivors coping with post-treatment fatigue can ease back into exercise regimens and reduce the intensity of such workouts to reduce the burdens on their bodies.

notice that their energy levels are high at certain points of the day and low at others. Cancer survivors can monitor these levels and plan their days so they are not especially busy when their energy levels are at their lowest. This can prevent burnout and help survivors avoid the domino effect that low energy levels can have. • Take short naps. The National Sleep Foundation notes that a 20-minute nap can improve alertness and mood and enhance performance. Men and women who recently completed successful cancer treatments can schedule 20-minute breaks during those times of day when their energy levels tend to drop off. A 20-minute nap might make for a more alert and productive rest of the day.

• Ease back in. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute recommends cancer survivors do what they enjoy after treatment, but do less of it. If they are already fatigued, cancer survivors should avoid tiring themselves out, no matter how much they might have missed certain activities while they were sick. Energy levels may gradually improve, and as they do, cancer survivors can adjust their activity schedules. Many cancer survivors are still coping with fatigue even after successful treatments. Allowing time for energy levels to be restored and taking steps to prevent further fatigue can help cancer survivors overcome this often unforeseen hurdle.
