Secrets of Healthy Living: Trends, Updates and Articles

Men’s Self-Care

June celebrates National Men’s Health Month and Father’s Day so take the beginning of this summer to recognize the men in your life. Men are at a higher risk for serious health conditions such as heart disease, cancers, and reproductive health issues. Set yourself up for a healthier future by practicing preventative care and setting aside time to care for you and your body. Men have much shorter lifespans than women, living on average 5 years less so take the time to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider to preemptively detect any early warning signs and learn to watch for possible symptoms.

Pain Management

Chronic pain affects so many lives with millions suffering daily. Often, doctors only offer medication to help manage pain. The source of the pain is not treated, and, for some, pain management leads to opioid addiction. Alternative therapies now give hope to those suffering from chronic pain. One treatment is laser therapy, where light energy is directed to the affected areas, allowing doctors to treat a range of conditions. Another promising therapy is PRP injections (Platelet-Rich Plasma). For PRP, some of the patient’s blood is injected into the affected area, stimulating repair, reducing inflammation, and fostering stem cell growth. These therapies can give immediate chronic pain relief and actually address the cause.


April is National Autism Awareness Month. This makes it the perfect time to learn more about the condition and make it a more accepted and integrated part of the community. As of 2023, one in thirty-six children are being diagnosed with autism, and many more adults are getting diagnosed later in life as new discoveries are made about the condition. Autism and those who have it make our world more diverse and unique. Hopefully, society will become more accommodating for those with conditions such as autism as awareness about the condition increases.

In Season: Watermelon

Summertime is the time to increase hydration awareness and how much water you are consuming. An easy way to stay hydrated without drinking pints of water is to eat some watermelon. Watermelon has a very low-calorie count but a very high water content. There are several nutrients in watermelon that may improve heart health, reduce inflammation, and may prevent macular degeneration.
