Ask Accordia: All this talk about COVID-19 and flu numbers being on the rise has made me aware of my health and how important it is to take care of myself. I am a mom of two, and I help take care of my three grandchildren during the day. I know I need to take better care of myself. Do you have any advice?
Yes, schedule an appointment with Accordia Health. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says the top causes of death among adult women in the United States include cancer, heart disease and stroke.
The good news is that there are lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risks, including quitting smoking, eating healthy, regular exercise, and stop avoiding the doctor. Wellness visits can help save your life by spotting potential health problems early, increasing your chance of survival. It is also crucial to remove the stigma of seeking mental health help. It is not a sign of weakness.
Studies show women often overlook their health. They are often the caregivers of their families and put their healthcare needs last. However, you cannot provide proper care to those around you without taking adequate care of yourself. Accordia Health would love to help you make your health a priority.
