Now that 2014 has begun there is still time to make New Year’s Resolutions if you haven’t already. The New Year is a great time to reflect on the past year and make resolutions based on aspects in your life that you would like to improve.

However, identifying a change that you would like to make and then deciding to do something about it can change your life for the better. This article includes the history of New Year’s resolutions, common resolutions and suggestions on how to be more successful in achieving your New Year’s resolution.

The term diet has, in my opinion, evolved over time from meaning quite simply what we regularly ate for nourishment to its current meaning, weight loss.  Now, I think pretty much all of us in the United States relate to this last definition that a diet is viewed as a method for weight loss.  The word diet is usually associated with a negative connotation and words like “calorie counting”, “restrictions” and “deprivation” and the like.  There always seems to be a new fad diet popping up.  Some of which you may have heard include:  the Atkins Diet, the grapefruit diet, the Zone diet, the South Beach diet, and the Hollywood Miracle diet just to name a few.  Some are pragmatic and others are outlandishly ridiculous.  Regardless of the type of diet, studies show that diets do not work in the long term.

Have you ever eaten donuts or candy and noticed that you feel energetic at first and then end up feeling lethargic?  When this happens to people, who are unaware that the high amount of sugar in the food they just ate is the reason for their sudden drop in energy, they reach for another sweet or high carbohydrate food.  This can start a “sugar cycle” and causes blood sugar (glucose) to bounce from high to low repeatedly and affects your well being and energy levels.  This often happens because too much insulin is produced in response to sugary foods, and this excess insulin causes blood sugar levels to drop below normal, resulting in low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and fatigue.  On the other hand, when your food choices help you maintain consistent normal blood sugar levels, you feel great and have the energy you need to enjoy active days.

Did you know that your oral health can offer clues about your overall health or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body?  When your mouth is healthy, chances are your overall health is also good.  Like many areas of the body, your mouth is teeming with bacteria - most of them harmless.  Normally the body's natural defenses and good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, can keep these bacteria under control.  However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease.   In addition, certain medications such as decongestants, antihistamines, painkillers and diuretics can reduce saliva flow. Saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, helping to protect you from microbial invasion or overgrowth that might lead to disease.  Studies also suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease, might play a role in some diseases.  (Mayo Clinic)

The World Hepatitis Alliance is working in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) to celebrate the 6th World Hepatitis Day to spread awareness about hepatitis.  According to the World Hepatitis Alliance, shockingly 500 million people worldwide are living with either chronic hepatitis B or C.  While this is far higher than the prevalence of HIV or any cancer, awareness is inexplicably low and the majority of those infected are unaware.  The World Hepatitis Alliance hopes that World Hepatitis Day will prompt people to think about the huge scale of viral hepatitis infection globally, about whether they may be at risk (and if so, to get tested) and also about how to avoid becoming infected.  The long-term objective of the campaign is to prevent new infections and to deliver real improvements in health outcomes for people living with hepatitis B and C.

The summer months are a good time to remember to stay hydrated and keep cool.  It is recommended that adults drink eight glasses of water a day, and possibly more depending upon activity level and outdoor temperature and humidity.  We lose water every day in the form of water vapor in the breath we exhale and as water in our sweat, urine, and stool.  If you don't replace lost fluids, you may get
dehydrated.

You and I have a 7 in 10 chance of needing some kind of long-term care later in our lives, and we’ll need it precisely at the time we can least afford to add it to our budget.  Fortunately, for those who can plan ahead and put away for the future, there is a great way to pay for the care that you are almost certain to need down the road.  Long-Term Care Insurance, which you can affordably obtain years before you will need it, can be used to pay for all kinds of care, including in-home care, care in facilities, and much more.

What harm can having too little of a vitamin do?  Consider this: Over the course of two months, a 62-year-old man developed numbness and a “pins and needles” sensation in his hands, had trouble walking, experienced severe joint pain, began turning yellow, and became progressively short of breath.  The cause was lack of vitamin B12 in his bloodstream, according to a case report from Harvard-affiliatedMassachusetts   GeneralHospital published in The New England Journal of Medicine.  It could have been worse—a severe vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to deep depression, paranoia and delusions, memory loss, incontinence, loss of taste and smell, and more.
