Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: http://tinyurl.com/nn6b95d A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Lymphedema

(to go back to Therapies Sevices main page)

Lymphedema is swelling that occurs from lymph build-up under the skin in your fatty tissues. Lymph is a fluid made up of water, protein, fat, pathogens, dead cells, and dissolved particles.

The lymphatic system is responsible for returning lymph back to the circulatory system and processing the fluid to fight infections.

Lymphedema occurs when the lymphatic system cannot drain the body’s tissues as fast as the circulatory system delivers fluids. This occurs when the lymphatics system is damaged or blocked by infection, surgery, radiation or physical injury.

Symptoms:
-Painless swelling of one or both arms or legs
- Tight, heavy, or weak sensation in limbs
- Pain, aching or warmth in arm or leg
- Redness of the skin

Clients need a diagnosis and/or referral but can self-refer.
