Welcome to Health E-News

Welcome to Health E-News! Even though the weather might be cooling down after summer, you can still maintain physical activity with some creativity. You can bundle up and walk outdoors, invite a friend to join you at the gym, or sign up for a community fitness class. As you will see in this issue of Health E-News, in addition to other benefits, exercise is proven to prevent strokes. If you’ve been avoiding exercise due to foot pain, read how Bastyr Center for Natural Health can help you alleviate that with custom orthotics And as you find yourself indoors more and more, be aware of the scented products you’re using around the house. A recent study has linked such products with lung damage.

In the meantime, stock your kitchen with Bastyr Dispensary’s collection of custom healing teas in preparation for new challenges that come with weather changes and the cold and flu season. While you’re at the dispensary, take advantage of the sale on the entire fall line of all-natural Dr. Hauschka skin care and make-up products.

But chances are that if your feet hurt, your back, legs, posture, knees, or hips may also suffer from poor foot function.

Our practitioners use the latest technology to evaluate your gait and foot structure to determine if your pain can be alleviated with customized prescription orthotics. Take your pain seriously and schedule an appointment at Bastyr.

Fresh Air or Air Fresheners?
Fresh Air or Air Fresheners?Perfumes, deodorizers, and scented cleaning products seem harmless enough to those not allergic to them. But a recent study finds that the chemical used in those scented products can actually be responsible for lung damage. Take another look at your stock of air fresheners, toilet bowl deodorants, or mothballs and reconsider your options in light of your health. Natural cleaning and deodorizing products that utilize enzymes instead of perfumes are available at Bastyr Dispensary and other natural health stores. You can also find nontoxic candles and soaps to bring the fresh scents of the outdoors inside.

Chew on This and Improve Your Digestion
Folk wisdom has dictated that food should be chewed thoroughly, even if it took some time. In today’s fast-paced world, many of us practically swallow our food without bothering to chew, and this has consequences for our digestive health. Especially for those who have gastro esophageal reflux disease or are dependent on the "little purple pill" (Prilosec) and antacids, extra chewing can make all the difference. Read advice from a Bastyr faculty member about the health benefits of thorough chewing.

Live Well to Reduce Stroke Risk
Now there’s yet another reason for women to watch their weight, get regular exercise, eat a healthy diet, and not smoke: a recent report suggests that these lifestyle choices protect women against strokes. It’s not news that such healthy habits are beneficial, but it’s good to know that science keeps proving it. Read about all the details on our website.
