#752 Don’t Hold Your Breath – Medical Minute

Posted on: Tue, Oct 24, 2017, at 5:00 am

When’s the last time you took a deep breath? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Have you ever noticed that when you get really busy or you’re stress you tend to hold your breath? Well, it’s common to hurry through the day and forget to stop and take some deep breaths. The body needs proper amounts of oxygen to function. Your brain needs it to think properly, your digestive system needs it to keep things moving, and even your immune system needs it to ward off colds and the flu. Maybe this explains why people who tend to meditate or take yoga have a healthier body overall. I want you each day to stop every hour on the hour (except when you’re asleep of course) and take in three really deep breaths ? slow and easy. I bet this simple change will bring you great benefits.

# 748 Aquariums Reduce Stress – Medical Minute

Posted on: Fri, Oct 20, 2017, at 5:00 am

Do you have an aquarium in your house? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Having an aquarium can improve your life. Who knew those cute little fish could have such health benefits. I remember being a child and it seemed that most houses had an aquarium, including mine. I always loved to stare at the fish and the little treasure chest at the bottom that would open and close with the bubbles. Well it turns out that that mindless staring probably had great benefits. Research shows that watching fish lowers stress and anxiety, almost like a form of hypnosis. People who own aquariums have lower blood pressure and tend to sleep better. Another study also showed that Alzheimer’s patients who had aquariums ate more and were less combative. Perhaps we should get back to having aquariums in our homes, offices, and even the hospital.

#747 Popcorn and a Movie – Just What the Doctor Ordered – Medical Minute

Posted on: Thu, Oct 19, 2017, at 5:01 am

Want to sit back with some popcorn and a good movie? Well, it may be just what the doctor ordered. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Isn’t it great when we find health benefits in an old favorite pastime? That’s right I am giving you permission to watch and snack. However ? there are a few caveats ? first the popcorn must be air popped and no added salt or butter. Think of popcorn as a whole grain ? one that actually tastes good. Popcorn contains powerful antioxidants that fight off free radicals within the body. Not to mention ? it’s full of fiber. And ? about that movie ? well make it a comedy. Watching funny movies and laughing will exercise your face and abs. It will also release endorphins ? the feel good hormones in your body. Even if you’re in a bad mood or down in the dumps, a good comedy can help turn things around. Oh ? one last thing ? no more than two movie nights a week – because remember ? active exercise still trumps sitting!

#745 Hugs Keep You Healthy – Medical Minute

Posted on: Tue, Oct 17, 2017, at 5:00 am

When’s the last time you gave or received a hug? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Don’t shy away from physical affection. Some people believe that our society is grumpy because over the years we have adopted a hands off approach. Could there be something to all those pats on the back? Well researchers say yes. Physical affection actually reduces stress hormones and releases oxytocin, a hormone that makes you feel happy. People need to touch and be touched. Studies show that marriages where couples show physical affection, like handle holding and snuggling have a higher success rate not to mention the people tend to live longer. Next time you see a friend or a relative, reach out and give ’em a big hug. While you’re at it ? tell them you love ’em too.
