Helpful Tips for Burlington Women’s Health and Wellness
At Alamance Family Practice we strongly advise preventative healthcare for Burlington Women. We suggest that women receive mammograms every two years after the age 50. We also suggest monthly self-breast exams, and a pap smear once every two years for women over the age of 20, as long as the results are normal. Additionally, we would suggest that you have regular checkups that include labs so that we can keep an eye on how well your health is being maintained. And don’t forget, at Alamance Family Practice in Burlington we are here for you, we will do our best to offer you an appointment that will fit with your schedule.
What about when you are at home? Other than coming in to our Burlington’s women clinic, there are lots of helpful things you can do to achieve optimum health and wellness. First we would suggest trying to get in 30 minutes of exercise in 3 times a week. If thirty minutes seems overwhelming then it’s okay to break it up into increments of 10. When you have ten minutes of blank space try filling it with a walk or brisk run, maybe even turn some upbeat music up and dance around the house. It’s very healthy for your body to get your blood pumping. Another thing we strongly recommend to Burlington’s women aiming for better health is to maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables. When you get hungry and its after 8 o’clock, try a glass of milk to fill you up instead of the cookie. When you are craving something sweet, grab a handful of your favorite fruits instead of the chocolate bar. Finally, make sure you are staying hydrated. There is nothing better for a busy woman than a bottle of water. We recommend at least 75oz of water a day for women weighing less than 150lbs. If you weigh more than 150lbs then we recommend dividing your weight in half and drinking that amount of water in ounces per day. For example if you weigh 200lbs try to drink 100oz of water each day. These three quick tips can greatly enhance Burlington women’s overall health and wellness! Start trying them today and see how much better you start feeling.
