WHAT IS WELLNESS? Wellness is being in good physical and mental health. Because mental health and physical health are linked, problems in one area can impact the other. At the same time, improving your physical health can also benefit your mental health, and vice versa. It is important to make healthy choices for both your physical and mental wellbeing. Remember that wellness is not the absence of illness or stress. You can still strive for wellness even if you are experiencing these challenges in your life.

What Are the Eight Dimensions of Wellness? Learning about the Eight Dimensions of Wellness can help you choose how to make wellness a part of your everyday life. Wellness strategies are practical ways to start developing healthy habits that can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health.

The Eight Dimensions of Wellness are: • Emotional—Coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships • Environmental—Good health by occupying pleasant, stimulating environments that support well-being • Financial—Satisfaction with current and future financial situations • Intellectual—Recognizing creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and skills • Occupational—Personal satisfaction and enrichment from one’s work • Physical—Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep • Social—Developing a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system • Spiritual—Expanding a sense of purpose and meaning in life Downloaded from https://www.samhsa.gov/wellness-initiative/ eight-dimensions-wellness on 27 October 2017

practice. This means we have a smaller practice size, one in which we can devote more time and attention to each individual. We are able to develop more meaningful relationships with each patient and provide the highest level of quality, personalized care. BENEFITS

SERVICES

Gap Medical Clinic is excited to introduce Bartlesville’s first insurance-free medical practice, known as Direct Primary Care. As such, we operate on a monthly fee, which provides you with access to your healthcare provider without worrying about paying co-insurances or deductibles. Because we are an insurance-free practice, we offer many services at discounted rates to maximize your healthcare. We offer wholesale medications, lab work, and radiology and imaging services, which translate into substantial savings to you!

• • • • • • • •

• A great alternative for small businesses to avoid expensive insurance plans • We recommend that patients carry some type of major medical plan to help cover costs associated with catastrophic medical care • You can use your HSA/FSA to pay the monthly fee • Urgent Care will still be available, there will be a $100 charge for non-members Fewer Patients = More Time For You Each of our providers has around 600 patients. If that seems like a lot, compare it to the typical 2000 or so of a traditional primary care physician. Because we limit the number of patients we see, that opens our schedule to be available when you need us–no matter what time of the day or part of the week. Insurance-Free = Hassle-Free We don’t accept insurance. But don’t let that scare you, because most of our patients actually save money.

Same-day or next day appointments Extended, relaxed appointments An annual physical Discounted labs or medication Discounted radiology and imaging Men’s and Women’s hormone therapy Individualized weight loss No extra charge for lacerations or minor procedures • No extra charge for urgent care

RATES Operating on a monthly fee also allows your doctor to focus on a smaller number of patients. In an individualized way, you will receive all the time you need with your provider and your care will be coordinated with specialists, hospitals, and others who may be involved in your care, and you will have the opportunity to enjoy savings on medications, labs, and radiology services.

Health Tip DAILY ASPIRIN THERAPY Daily aspirin therapy can be a lifesaving option, but it’s not for everyone. Get the facts before considering a daily aspirin. SHOULD YOU TAKE A DAILY ASPIRIN?

Talk with your doctor about whether daily aspirin therapy might help you prevent a heart attack. Your doctor may suggest daily aspirin therapy if: • •

• •

Improve heart health. Practice your

Before starting daily aspirin therapy under the advice of your doctor, you should let him or her know if you have a health condition that could increase your risk of bleeding or other complications. These conditions include: • • •

A bleeding or clotting disorder (bleeding easily) Aspirin allergy, which can include asthma caused by aspirin Bleeding stomach ulcers

OTHER MEDICATIONS AND HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS ALSO MAY INCREASE YOUR RISK OF BLEEDING.

If you have been taking daily aspirin therapy and want to stop, it’s important to talk to your doctor before making any changes. Suddenly stopping daily aspirin therapy could have a rebound effect that may trigger a blood clot. If you’re already taking an anticoagulant, such as warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), apixaban (Eliquis), dabigatran (Pradaxa) or rivaroxaban (Xarelto) for another condition, combining it with aspirin may greatly increase the risk of major bleeding complications. However, there may be some conditions for which combining a low dose of aspirin with warfarin or another anticoagulant is appropriate. But, this therapy always needs to be carefully discussed with your doctor.

What is Naloxone?

community

the future

Naloxone is the antidote that reverses an opioid overdose. It works by neutralizing injested opioids and helping you breathe again. Naloxone only works if a person has opioids in their system and it is safe for nearly everyone. Since 2015, over 70 Oklahomans are still alive because they received Naloxone.

How to Use In the event of an overdose emergency: Call 911 and give naloxone. If no reaction in 3 minutes, give second naloxone dose. Do rescue breathing and chest compressions. Follow 911 dispatcher instructions. After naloxone, stay with the person until help arrives.

Naloxone wears off. A person who has overdosed may experience symptoms again. Seek emergency care.

Naloxone has no adverse effects, it can only save lives.

Live Healthy MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT OPIOIDS AND THE EFFECT

TREATMENT FOR ADDICTION

Opioids act on specific receptors in the brain and the body, which also interact with naturally produced substances known as endorphins or enkephalins – important in regulating pain. While prescription pain relievers can be highly beneficial if used as prescribed, opioids as a general class of drugs have a high potential for abuse.

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) can be a life-saving and cost-saving intervention for those with opioid use disorder. While there are three FDA approved medications for treating opioid use disorder, the evidence base for these medications varies. Clinical effectiveness -- how these medications work in the real world -- is the relevant standard for selecting appropriate medications.

Addiction to opioids (e.g., heroin, morphine, prescription pain relievers) is a serious global problem that affects the health, social, and economic welfare of all societies. An estimated 12–21 million people worldwide abuse opioids, with 1.9 million people in the U.S. addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers in 2010 and 359,000 addicted to heroin. Consequences of this abuse have been devastating and are on the rise. For example, the number of unintentional overdose deaths from prescription pain relievers has soared in the U.S., quadrupling since 1999.

Medications developed to treat opioid addiction work through the same receptors as the addictive drug, but are safer and less likely to produce the harmful behaviors that characterize addiction. Three types include (1) agonists, which activate opioid receptors; (2) partial agonists, which also activate opioid receptors but produce a diminished response; and (3) antagonists, which block the receptor, and interfere with the rewarding effects of opioids. Physicians prescribe a particular medication based on a patient’s specific medical needs and other factors. Effective medications include: Older adults should follow the adult guidelines.

Abuse of opioids, especially heroin, is also linked with the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), PATH TO RECOVERY and other blood-­‐borne diseases mostly through the use of unsterile drug paraphernalia, but also through It is possible to get on the path to recovery and there the risky behavior that drug abuse may engender. are many different treatment options. Thus, treatment of drug abuse not only frees individuals from the vicious cycle of addiction, but can Here are some of the types of treatment available: also prevent related adverse health consequences. • Counseling which addresses the psychological and behavioral aspects of addiction 30 | Learn more about creating a healthier Washington County at WCWIOK.org

INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE AND VICTIM SERVICES

It’s not always easy to tell at the beginning of a relationship if it will become abusive.

s&

gn i S gs g n la i n f ar red w

In fact, many abusive partners may seem absolutely perfect in the early stages of a relationship. Possessive and controlling behaviors don’t always appear overnight, but rather emerge and intensify as the relationship grows.

Domestic violence doesn’t look the same in every relationship because every relationship is different. But one thing most abusive relationships have in common is that the abusive partner does many different kinds of things to have more power and control over their partners. If you’re beginning to feel as if your partner or a loved one’s partner is becoming abusive, there are a few behaviors that you can look out for. Watch out for these red flags and if you’re experiencing one or more of them in your relationship, call the hotline to talk about what’s going on. • Telling you that you can never do anything right • Showing jealousy of your friends and time spent away • Keeping you or discouraging you from seeing friends or family members

• Embarrassing or shaming you with put-downs • Controlling every penny spent in the household • Taking your money or refusing to give you money for expenses • Looking at you or acting in ways that scare you • Controlling who you see, where you go, or what you do • Preventing you from making your own decisions • Telling you that you are a bad parent or threatening to harm or take away your children • Preventing you from working or attending school • D e s t r o y i n g your property or threatening to hurt or kill your pets • I ntimidating you with guns, knives or other weapons • P r e s s u r i n g you to have sex when you don’t want to or do things sexually you’re not comfortable with • Pressuring you to use drugs or alcohol Adapted from The National Domestic Violence Hotline | thehotline.org/is-this-abuse/abuse-defined/ | 1-800-7997233 | 1-800-787-3224 (TTY)

• The Need The need for a transportation system in Bartlesville has been known for over twenty years by social agencies, charitable organizations, churches and people who work with low-income people in Bartlesville. Ten years ago the Transportation Coalition was formed to research transportation systems in other cities and consider possibilities to address this need. • The Pilot Project In 2012 a pilot bus system called The Circuit was launched. The bus service is limited to an east-west route of one hour. Because of cost factors the bus only runs from 7:00 to 11:00 in the morning and 2:00 to 6:00 in the evening on weekdays. This leaves a gap of three hours in the middle of the day and weekends.

Even so, the experience has proven the need and solution. • WARD 2 JOHN KANE, VICE MAYOR 918-807-6599 The Circuit averages about 1,000 rides each month. • City Ride The • WARD 3 JIM CURD JR. 918-397-3092 Surveys of riders in June and July, 2017 indicate that Transpor tation • WARD 4 ALAN GENTGES 918-704-2246 almost 300 unduplicated residents are currently being Coalition fully • WARD 5 DR.

The report not only validated the a city service.

• Broader Benefits While the coalition’s motivation has primarily been to serve low-income individuals and families, there are other benefits. The economic benefits come in the form of employees for businesses as well as reducing the need for welfare support for families. Transportation for employment could also help keep people out of prison, pay fines and maintain child support. A bus system could also be of interest to people who are thinking “green” and reduce the use of cars in the city for environmental reasons. • The Challenge The Transportation Coalition believes the time has come to move forward with an expanded Circuit with sustained funding from the people of Bartlesville. If not, The Circuit should be discontinued all together. This would leave the challenge for another generation. However, the need and hardship will only increase for the less fortunate in Bartlesville and greater expense to the community as a whole.

We ask for your support in establishing a bus system for Bartlesville by creating a transportation authority and providing sustained funding through a minimal fee on the utility bill. Members of the Transportation Coalition are prepared to meet with members of the City Council to provide more details as needed and answer questions. In fact we will be seeking appointments with each of you in the coming weeks. If you prefer, you may contact M’Liss at 918-8762331 or Fr. Lee at 918-397-3683. Sincerely, M’Liss Jenkins Fr.

BLUE ZONES — THE POWER 9® Life expectancy of an American born today averages 78.2 years. But this year, over 70,000 Americans have reached their 100th birthday. What are they doing that the average American isn’t (or won’t?) To answer the question, Blue Zone professionals teamed up with National Geographic to find the world’s longest-lived people and study them. The Danish Twin Study established that only about 20% of how long the average person lives is determined by genes; therefore, most of the answers lied within lifestyle and environment. The Blue Zone professionals worked with a team of demographers to find pockets of people around the world with the highest life expectancy, or with the highest proportions of people who reach age 100. They found five places that met their criteria: Barbagia region of Sardinia, Ikaria, Greece, Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica, Seventh Day Adventists, and Okinawa, Japan. A team of medical researchers, anthropologists, demographers, and epidemiologists was assembled to search for evidence-based common denominators among all places. They found nine: 1. Move Naturally The world’s longest-lived people don’t pump iron, run marathons or join gyms. Instead, they live in environments that constantly nudge them into moving without thinking about it. They grow gardens and don’t have mechanical conveniences for house and yard work. 2. Purpose - The Okinawans call it “Ikigai” and the Nicoyans call it “plan de vida;” for both it translates to “why I wake up in the morning.” Knowing your sense of purpose is worth up to seven years of extra life expectancy 3. Down Shift - Even people in the Blue Zones experience stress. Stress leads to chronic inflammation, associated with every major age-related disease. What the world’s longest-lived people have that we don’t are routines to shed that stress. Okinawans take a few moments

each day to remember their ancestors, Adventists pray, Ikarians take a nap, and Sardinians do happy hour. 80% Rule - “Hara hachi bu” – the Okinawan, 2500-year old Confucian mantra said before meals reminds them to stop eating when their stomachs are 80 percent full. The 20% gap between not being hungry and feeling full could be the difference between losing weight or gaining it. People in the Blue Zones eat their smallest meal in the late afternoon or early evening and then they don’t eat any more the rest of the day. Plant Slant - Beans, including fava, black, soy, and lentils, are the cornerstone of most centenarian diets. Meat— mostly pork—is eaten on average only five times per month. Serving sizes are 3-4 oz., about the size of deck or cards. Wine @ 5 - People in all Blue Zones (except Adventists) drink alcohol moderately and regularly. Moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers. The trick is to drink 1-2 glasses per day (preferably Sardinian Cannonau wine), with friends and/or with food. And no, you can’t save up all weekend and have 14 drinks on Saturday. Belong - All but five of the 263 centenarians interviewed belonged to some faith-based community. Denomination doesn’t seem to matter. Research shows that attending faith-based services four times per month will add 4-14 years of life expectancy. Loved Ones First - Successful centenarians in the Blue Zones put their families first. This means keeping aging parents and grandparents nearby or in the home (It lowers disease and mortality rates of children in the home too.). They commit to a life partner (which can add up to 3 years of life expectancy) and invest in their children with time and love (They’ll be more likely to care for you when the time comes). Right Tribe - The world’s longest lived people chose–or were born into–social circles that supported healthy behaviors, Okinawans created ”moais”–groups of five friends that committed to each other for life. Research from the Framingham Studies shows that smoking, obesity, happiness, and even loneliness are contagious. So the social networks of long-lived people have favorably shaped their health behaviors.

To make it to age 100, it helps to have won the genetic lottery. But most of us have the capacity to make it well into our early 90’s and largely without chronic disease. As the Adventists demonstrate, the average person’s life expectancy could increase by 10-12 years by adopting a Blue Zones lifestyle.

Healthy Family

Commitment.

Time Together.

Communication.

Appreciation.

Spirituality.

Coping Skills.

It is important that all family members are committed to the family and to each other. Husbands and wives who are committed to the marriage have found a major way of keeping the marriage going. It is important that the family comes first over those outside the family. Rather than letting outside activities take prominence over the family, those activities that do should be eliminated. Healthy families tend to select activities that promote the family as being important and help the family to grow closer.

In healthy families there is an admiration for each other. Families respect one another and appreciate what each member of the family contributes. The accomplishments of each family member are valued by the others. Each family member looks for the good in the rest of the family.

Healthy families are ones that spend time together. The amount of time is often as important as the activity chosen. One important event that is often lacking in many families today is a family meal time. Healthy families spend this time being together, enjoying a meal and talking about what is going on in each of their individual lives. These families also spend time playing together and doing activities that all of the family members enjoy doing. Healthy families also have created family traditions including celebrating birthdays, holidays and other important events.

Although not all of those surveyed were members of a particular church or religion, they still felt that spirituality was important. These families had a sense of spiritual wellbeing. Parents are expected to teach their children right from wrong and present good examples of behavior for their children. It is also important for parents to teach their children how to make moral choices for themselves as they mature.

An important aspect of a healthy family is communication. This involves listening to and supporting one another. It is important for parents to listen to their children as much as they expect their children to listen to them. Communication also involves conflict which is a part of every family. The healthy family is able to fight fairly and resolve conflicts that do occur.

Healthy families are able to deal with crisis situations that may occur. Crises in families may be small or large, but healthy families are able to find solutions to their problems. They often depend upon one another for the support that they need. When healthy families cannot solve their problems, they are willing to go outside of the family for solutions.
