#AmericanDiabetesAssociationAlertDay

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Today is American Diabetes Alert Day –

  • Diabetes affects about 30.3 million Americans or about 9.4 percent of the U.S. population.
  • Nearly 1 in 4 adults with diabetes, or 7.2 million Americans, are unaware that they have the disease.
  • Another 84.1 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
  • Nine out of 10 adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it.

Some ways to prevent and manage pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol:

  • Healthy Eating
  • Healthy Weight
  • Physical Activity
  • Stress Reduction

Talk to Your Doctor about prevention and treatment of diabetes.  

The third integrative nursing principle: “Nature has healing and restorative properties that contribute to health and well-being” supports the health benefits associated with the practice of Shinrin-yoku and Nature Therapy and serves as a part of the integrated healthcare model.

Contact us for information on how to reduce stress, eat healthily, manage weight, and motivation to exercise. Join in our monthly walking meditations beginning this June: Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) based on the Japanese practice of enjoying nature with all of your senses.
