Help for your health through the Holidays



The holidays are upon us, and along with all the festivities, come a lot of temptation to overindulge. For people with chronic illnesses or food allergies, the abundance of sweets and rich food available this time of year—not to mention peer pressure to try everything— can be a real problem. With a little bit of planning and help from the experts at The Medical Center Health & Wellness, the holidays can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of diagnosis.

If you are trying to manage your weight, medical nutrition therapy can assist you in making a plan for healthy eating and lifestyle choices throughout the holidays. The goal is to keep holiday weight gain to a minimum and energy levels to a maximum. If you have diabetes, our diabetes educator can help you manage your stress, create an exercise plan and strategize with you for optimal blood glucose control. Our dietitian and/or diabetes educator can partner with you to help you not just survive the holidays, but thrive!

If you do slip up during the holidays, one way to get back on track is to attend the Health & Wellness Expo scheduled for January 11 at the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green.

You can also learn more about all the wellness programs, classes and events Med Center Health has to offer at MedCenterHealth.org.
