Optimal Hydration

What is the ultimate health supplement? This is a substance that will boost your brain power, build up energy and enhance performance? It’s WATER! But how much water should we drink? Did you know that adults who aren't sufficiently hydrated may age faster, face a higher risk of chronic diseases and be more likely to die younger than those who stay well-hydrated? You may be surprised to learn that our bodies are 60% water, so it makes sense that maintaining a healthy body starts with sustaining healthy hydration habits.


Tips:

1. Is drinking 8 glasses of water daily the magic number you should aim for? The answer is, it depends. Not just on activity, but temperature, overall health and more. Join us for our free Optimal Hydration workshop, live on Zoom, to determine the right amount for you. (Plus, a few laughs from ComedyCures!)

2. What counts as water? According to the National Academy of Medicine, almost any nonalcoholic fluid will do, water, juice, tea and even coffee. My preference is water. Add some frozen fruit for a flavorful delight! We all hear about the importance of drinking water. Join us to learn how you can increase your water intake by consuming water rich fruits such as watermelon and other useful tips.

Strategies for Seamless Transitions

Seasonal transitions can be exciting, but they can also cause anxiety, especially for students and their parents starting a new school year.

Here are some quick strategies to help transition yourself from summer to fall:


Tips:

1. For your health during a transition, focus on maintenance not grand changes. Starting a a whole new health routine on top of transitioning back to school or a post-summer schedule can increase anxiety. Choose one thing you've been doing for your health over the summer and continue with that activity.

2. Schedule and commit to weekly time for self-care. Even as little as 10 minutes of alone time each day, to exhale, stretch a little, and clear your mind, can help you unwind a bit and recharge.

Addressing Intimacy in Cancer Care

Sexuality is one of the most important quality of life issues amongst people with cancer, but is the most avoided topic for discussion by healthcare providers with their patients.


In a 2017 study of gynecologic oncologists’ opinions about sexuality and their patients, one of the participants stated, "Sex is private and discussing it with patients will interfere with our provider-patient relationship".(1) If this is your doctor’s attitude you may want to consider finding a new one!

Consider getting help from a sex therapist, psychologist, psycho-oncologist, hypnotherapist or energy medicine practitioner if you'd like support in this area.
