With more and more millennials skipping out on annual health exams in favor of a quick, as-needed visit to an urgent care facility, doctors fear the largest generation in America may overlook serious health issues.
There are 83 million Americans between age 22 and 37 and according to a November 2018 survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 45% of those 18-29 and 28% of those age 30-39 do not have a primary care physician. The issue is that health conditions that can be caught early may slip through the cracks.
Dr. Niket Sonpal, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York City, offers five health exams millennials should get this year.
Many people start their year off buying a gym membership and new gym attire.
While the first step to transforming your body is, in fact, deciding to commit to restructuring your lifestyle at the gym and in the kitchen, it is common for people to make mistakes that jeopardize their progress. These mistakes can chip away at their enthusiasm to work out and ultimately result in people giving up on their goals.
“As a trainer, my job consists of helping clients assess where they are and where they want to be. Giving them a clear pathway helps avoid mistakes that often cause people to quit too soon and forfeit their goals,” says Vince Sant, the co-founder and lead trainer of V Shred, the online training platform that has taken the world by storm in recent years.
Vince says these are some of the most common mistakes people make when starting off their fitness journey.
Last year’s flu season brought the highest number of deaths and health complications since the dawn of modern tracking, so much so, that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is worried that this flu season could result in a pandemic.
It’s hard to imagine that our medically advanced society would be under threat; however, unpredictable and changing bacteria and viruses can leave our immune systems susceptible to being unfairly compromised.
While flu vaccination has an important role, it’s not the only strategy we should employ when it comes to prevention. Being proactive with your health means eating a healthful diet, getting adequate sleep and regular exercise, managing stress levels and washing hands frequently.
Beyond lifestyle approaches, consider these holistic remedies to address common winter woes such as cold, flu, stomach aches, and joint discomfort.
If you follow fitness trainers or enthusiasts on Instagram, we are besieged by women at the gym who look supremely confident, airbrushed and without a bead of sweat.
The reality is, most of us don’t look or smell our best after a tough workout. Not everyone is comfortable walking into a class of strangers in form-fitting gym clothes.

Fortunately, we have Certified Fitness Trainer, Model Turned Fitness Expert, Instagram Fitness Guru and YouTube Sensation Vince Sant, co-founder of the online platform www.vshred.com to answer the questions you are too shy to ask.
From Whole Foods to pricey health food stores, cafes, and coffee shops, certain foods and ingredients have become trendy among health and calorie counting foodies. Who has not heard of matcha, Acai, cold-pressed juice, and gluten-free baked goods?
In a perfect world, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find food and drinks that are delicious, healthy and not calorie laden?

In the U.S., 26 percent of seniors receive a mixture of paid care and family care, and nine percent rely solely on paid help, such as nurses who come to their homes.
While the elderly aren’t the only people who need to get used to new nurses, they often require nursing services in order to age in place. No matter the age of the patient, it’s important for that person to feel comfortable with a new nurse.
