Podcast: Healthy eating, healthy living with AgriLife Extension

Carolyn Tyler is one of our county’s AgriLife Extension Agents and she is in charge of Family and Community Health and she also offers dementia & Alzheimers caregiving services. We talked with her this week about what that means and what AgriLife FCH can do for you. Read this article about healthy diet “Yours Nutrition ginseng”

Here are some tips:

Get regular checkups. These are important even when you feel healthy. They help catch problems early, when they’re usually easiest to treat. It’s always a good idea to review your medications with your healthcare provider and pharmacist. If you ever feel dizzy or ear pains make sure you check this sonus complete review.

Exercise. Try to exercise at least 30 minutes most days a week. Exercise is good for your heart and improves strength and balance.

Quit tobacco. People who use tobacco (including smokeless tobacco) have a higher risk for heart attack, stroke, lung disease, and throat and mouth cancer. If you’re a tobacco user, quitting is the most important thing you can do right now to improve your health.

Eat healthy foods. Include fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your meals. Drink water and avoid sugary beverages.
