Don't let Aches slow you down (ARA) — We all know the feeling that comes with the first great day of spring. When the sun is shining, the air smells sweet and fresh and the temperatures are warm, we all feel the urge to get outside and throw off the confinement of the winter months. Whether you're an avid athlete, a dedicated gardener or someone who's been meaning to get started on an exercise program, the arrival of spring is one sure way to get you moving. No one is immune from the desire to get outdoors and do something active while enjoying the weather - and that includes people with chronic pain issues. Whether you're dealing with arthritis or trying to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, the threat of pain is one of the most challenging obstacles to overcome for those who want to live an active lifestyle, because no one wants to take the risk of aggravating their health problems. But even if you're living with pain, it's essential to heed the call of the outdoors this spring and be active. There are plenty of ways to mitigate pain issues and avoid further injury. The important thing is to consult your doctor and to work out a plan together that will let you get the exercise you want and need without worsening your

& Pains

pain. And, in fact, exercising can be an important part of overcoming some of those issues - as long as it's done in the right way. There are a lot of activities that we all love to do that require a lot of repetitive motion. Tennis is a popular sport for all ages, and a game that can be played over a lifetime, but for people suffering from joint pain and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), the repeated swinging motions required for a good volley can drive them off the court. Similarly, gardeners eager to get their hands in the dirt can be limited by pain that crops up with the repetitious motion involved in tilling, preparing beds, digging and planting. For people suffering from CTS, whether they are gardeners, tennis players or otherwise, supportive gloves can provide the relief they need. One example, IMAK's SmartGlove, features a comfortably flexible support splint that keeps hands in a good position without being stiff, and helps to relieve or

prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. It's ideal for active lifestyles because it is breathable and washable, and it's an effective non-surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise is an important part of dealing with back pain. Not only does it strengthen the muscles and joints, but it can stretch contracted muscles, improve posture and even help protect against injury by improving your overall fitness. Another health problem that exercise can positively affect is arthritis. When you go outside and start being active this spring, you can

help your arthritis with activities like tai chi, strengthening exercises and cardio exercise that get your heart working. It's recommended that you protect your joints by warming them up prior to exercise, and by being gentle on your body - starting out too hard and fast can cause problems. Support products like IMAK's SmartGlove can also help you stay in good alignment as you work out. Don't resist the urge to soak in the sunshine because of pain and discomfort this spring. Not only is getting outside easier than ever with supportive therapies, but it's an essential part of living a healthier, pain-free life.

DID YOU KNOW? While genetics and external factors beyond a man's control play a role in overall fitness, the top threats to men's health are largely preventable. Leading the list are heart disease, cancer and unintentional injury. While protection against unintentional injury can be difficult beyond taking standard safety precautions, the fight against heart disease and cancer is one men can fight far in advance of diagnosis. For example, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can help keep men healthy. In addition, reducing stress or learning ways in which to cope successfully with stress can make a big difference. Routine health visits also can identify potential health threat s early on. - From Metro Creative

Make your house clean and green (ARA) - When you clean your house in the spring, you really want it to be clean. Dirt, dust and germs are banned, and all appliances, floors and walls are scrubbed clean. But is your house really clean, or have you traded dirt and germs for caustic and toxic chemicals found in most conventional cleaning products? Even some so-called natural cleansers can contain these same or similar nasty ingredients. And you would know this only if the manufacturer practices full disclosure of ingredients on their labels, which is not required on home care products. Think about it when was the last time you saw a full ingredient listing on your spray cleaner? The best way to make sure your living space is clean and healthy is to use safe, natural cleaning products you create yourself, using natural and inexpensive ingredients you can pick up at any natural grocery store. It's cost-effective, not difficult and, like the task of spring cleaning itself, it's satisfying and rewarding. You can craft your own, home-spun versions of everything from carpet cleaner to furniture dusting polish - and have the satisfying assurance that you really are keeping your home clean and green. Whether you're shopping for prepared natural cleaning solutions or making your own, keep in mind that the word "aromatherapy" is now being applied to everything scented - from dishwashing liquid to laundry detergent. The true practice of aromatherapy relies on using pure essential oils extracted from plants.

These natural plant essences nurture us on mental, emotional, physical and even spiritual levels. House cleaning isn't exactly a spiritual exercise, but adding the effects and properties of essential oils to your homemade household products can enhance the experience and the effectiveness of your task. Essential oils have potent antimicrobial effects along with their clean, pleasant natural aromas. Here are a few "classic" homecare essential oils suggested by the experts at the leading aromatherapy company, Aura Cacia: lemon (clean, sweet, uplifting scent; deodorizing), peppermint (minty, fresh; air purifier; mild pest repellent), eucalyptus and tea tree (air and surface sanitizers; fresh, therapeutic aromas). Here's a shopping list of key ingredients for making your own homecare products: * Baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) - Gently abrasive scouring powder, odor absorber and an excellent base for making your own cleaning preparations. * Washing soda (Sodium Carbonate) * Borax (Sodium Borate) Natural mineral compound, laundry booster, multipurpose cleanser, fungicide/insecticide. * White distilled vinegar (Acetic Acid) * Liquid soap (Sodium Hydroxide) - Choose from vegetable oil-based soaps such as olive oil or sweet almond. * Distilled water - Clean, distilled water acts as a better

carrier and dirt solvent. Tap water will often contain salts and minerals that can lead to spotting and build-up. * Essential oils * Spray bottles * Natural bristle scrubbing brushes * Squeeze bottles * Cotton dusting cloth * Hemp or jute fiber scrubbing cloth * Tote to put it all in Follow these simple recipes for making your own basic homecare products: Basic Spray Cleaner 2 cups water 1/2 teaspoon sodium borate 1/4 teaspoon liquid soap 36 drops essential oil* *Cleansing and purifying essential oils: lemon, tea tree, eucalyptus, spike lavender.

spring allergy mistakes to avoid this season

(ARA) - Do you sneeze and wheeze all spring long? If so, you may be making common mistakes that keep you from preventing spring allergies. The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) alerts allergy sufferers to avoid these five common mistakes:

1. Treating symptoms without knowing what you're allergic to. You may think you know what's causing your spring allergy symptoms, but more than two-thirds of spring allergy sufferers actually have year-round allergies. An allergist, a doctor who is an


Health Directory 2010 April - June

expert in treating allergies and asthma, can perform tests to pinpoint the cause of your suffering and then find the right treatment to stop it. 2. Spending blindly on over-the-counter medications. There are tons of allergy medications available at the store, some of which can be very effective. But if you're buying new products all the time, spending a bundle and not feeling better, consult with an allergist who can discuss which options might be best for you. Your allergist may suggest nasal spray or allergy shots, also called immunotherapy. Immunotherapy can actually cure your allergies and keep you out of the drug store aisles for good. "Immunotherapy can possibly cure your allergies and keep you out of the drug store aisles for good," says allergist Dr. James Sublett, chair of the ACAAI "Find an Allergist, Find Relief" public education campaign. 3. Waiting too long to take allergy meds. Don't wait until symptoms kick in and you're already feeling bad to take allergy medication. Instead, prepare by taking medication that has worked for you in the past just before the allergy season starts. Pay attention to the weather: When winter weather turns warm, pollens and molds are released into the air. Start treatment prior to the warm up. 4. Not steering clear of your allergy triggers. Finding the right treatment is important, but it's also crit-

Page 9

ical to start avoiding what you are allergic to. For example, if you have a pollen allergy, make sure you keep your windows shut, take a shower when you come inside and stay indoors during mid-day when pollen counts are highest. All of these things can make a big difference in how you feel. "Taking these actions can make a big difference in how you feel," says Sublett. 5. Eating produce and other foods that might aggravate sniffles and sneezing. If your mouth, lips and throat get itchy and you sniffle and sneeze after eating certain raw or fresh fruits or other foods, you may have "oral allergy syndrome." The condition, which affects about one third of seasonal allergy sufferers, occurs in people who are already allergic to pollen. Their immune system sees a similarity between the proteins of pollen and those of the food, and triggers a reaction. If you are allergic to tree pollen, for example, foods like apples, cherries, pears, apricots, kiwis, oranges, plums, almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts may bother you. Cooking or peeling the food may help, but you should talk to an allergist. For more information about allergies and asthma, and to find an allergist near you visit www.AllergyandAsthmaRelief .org.

Make sure your Indoor air is healthy this spring (ARA) - As soon as the temperatures warm up, you open up the doors and windows and let the "fresh" air in. You want to get rid of winter's stale, indoor air and replace it with the clean, outdoor air. You also go on a cleaning spree, vacuuming, dusting and getting rid of all the dust bunnies hiding under furniture. With a fresh, clean house, you assume you'll be breathing much easier. Think again. Air pollution is a very serious concern indoors. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental threats. It also reports indoor air is three to five times more contaminated than outdoor air, on average. "When the house is closed up for winter, pollutants in the air have nowhere to go," says Aaron Marshbanks, board member of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. "Then spring rolls around, and the natural thing to do is open up your windows and bring new air into your house. However, this is when allergy season is at its highest, and you're welcoming new pollutants into your home and contaminating your air with pollens." These pollutants are then blown through your house five to seven times each day by your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. And the spring cleaning you're doing? All those dust bunnies are just groupings of millions of little particles of dust, dander and pollen. When broken up, many of the particles go back into the air, circulate around through your house and once again collect under

your sofa. Some tips to keep the air you breathe inside as clean as possible include: * Install hardwood floors versus carpeting. Carpeting traps particles, and with every step you take across it, those particles are released back into the air. * Have carpets professionally cleaned with a truck-mounted system. * Use natural- or botanicalbased cleaners instead of chemicals. * Regularly change your furnace filter - most experts recommend doing this every two months. This will help remove particles circulating through the air. * Have your heating and cooling system thoroughly cleaned. This is because dust and other air pollutants collect in the vents, and then are picked up by the air stream and blown back into the house. NADCA recommends homeowners take off the cover of an air vent and look down the vent with a mirror and flashlight or a digital camera. If the ducts are covered with dust or debris, it's time for a heating and cooling system cleaning. NADCA recommends a thorough duct cleaning, as well as cleaning the evaporator coil and all parts of the system that air touches. Not only will this clean up the air inside your house, but it will also help your system work more efficiently and save you money. A study taken by Pacific Gas and Electric showed that a dirty condenser coil can result in 30 percent higher energy usage. To find a qualified heating and cooling system cleaner in your area, visit NADCA.com.
