Total Body Health (26)

Our New Kitchen, New Nutrition, New You series focuses on helping you get healthier in the kitchen — one ingredient at a time. In each edition of OurHealth, we suggest small changes in your food preparation and grocery shopping habits that can make a big, positive impact on your overall nutrition and health.

Primary care physicians are our partners on the road to good health. They urge us to get our vaccinations and preventive health screenings. They’re the ones reminding us to eat healthy and exercise.  

Even after a long winter and the promise of brighter days and warmer temperatures, a small segment of the population quietly dreads spring’s return.

They’re not crazy or snow-loving, winter-sports fanatics. They’re allergy sufferers.  

Your health is as unique as you are. It’s shaped by a combination of many factors — age, weight, gender, genetics, environment and lifestyle choices. In your first visit with your primary care provider, the doctor assesses each of these components and develops a care plan specific to you. Then it’s your turn. You have to act on that plan. You have to “do your care.”
