Barry ZeVan (aka "The Weatherman") offers some insightful ideas about the importance of staying fit and some possible signs of hidden health problems:
During my youth, one of the perpetual sayings in our household was, "Your health is the most important thing you have." Of course, hearing that from our elders, was verbiage to which some of us didn't pay much attention. Now, in our senior years, we know what they were saying was one hundred percent true.
By the time we reach a certain age, most of us have probably reached stages when we know what to recognize as signals that something happening to us physically isn't quite right, and it's time to visit a doctor or hospital. Above almost every element for good health, especially for us seniors, DAILY EXERCISE is the major key for keeping fit.
Recently, however, I saw the following and wanted to share parts of it with you regarding what might help you think a bit more about some out of the ordinary physical occurrences and signals precipitating the need to check further, to wit:
“When you see changes in the body, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have a certain medical condition,” says Robin Evans, MD, a clinical instructor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, about recognizing subtle or unusual symptoms. “However, a bell should go off in your head to get screened or talk to your doctor.” Our body gives us many signs about a certain health condition. So, if you see something unusual occurring, please visit your doctor, because research shows early screening could prevent many diseases and even premature death. Here are some:
These are just some of the things you may feel signal a hidden health problem, thanks to Dr. Evans's research-proven suggestions. Please contact your Fairview care provider if you feel any of the preceding should be addressed. Thanks for reading, as always.
