Listen to Your Gut!
Avoid the Itch: Poison Ivy, Oak & Sumac
So, this month we are going to talk a little bit about your digestive system and how to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes to improve your digestive health.
Your digestive system breaks down food and liquid into small parts that can be absorbed by your body. These small parts (or nutrients) are used by your body’s cells for energy. Your digestive tract, also called your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, is made up of the esophagus (food tube), stomach, large and small intestines, liver, pancreas and gall bladder.
So What’s the Big Whoop with the Tetanus Vaccine?
In order to avoid a potential unpleasant rash from one of these plants, it’s important that you are able to recognize these poisonous plants to help prevent exposure.
Allergies or the Common Cold: Who’s the Culprit?
The Tdap vaccine not only protects you against tetanus and diphtheria (like the Td vaccine), but it also protects you and those around you from a disease you have probably heard of called whooping cough.
Luckily, for those of us here in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, spring is here!. And although that (hopefully) means warmer weather and more sunshine, it also means that allergy season may be around the corner for some of us.
