An extra treat: Denine Cambridge wins spa package for simply having her mammogram done at Doctors Hospital

During January and February, women getting their mammograms at Doctors Hospital's Diagnostic Imaging Center were entered into the hospital's "Love Yourself From Head To Toe" promotion. They were encouraged to do something special for themselves, including getting their yearly mammograms, especially for women over the age of 40.
Doctors Hospital teamed up with Baha-Retreat Anti-Aging Spa on East Bay Street to give away a pampering escape spa package inclusive of an aromatherapy massage, Vitamin C facial, classic manicure and a spa pedicure. The lucky winner was Denine Cambridge.
"When I got the call, I thought oh my gosh, what happened? I knew all my results were fine, but I thought something happened to somebody else. When I heard I had won this prize, I was shocked. I wasn't even aware that I was entered to win anything."
Cambridge won the package over 350 other women who had their mammograms at Doctors Hospital in January and February.
In addition to the Baha-Retreat spa package, the women also had the opportunity to enter to win one of three mammograms by messaging Doctors Hospital Nassau Bahamas on Facebook. Winning free mammograms were Valderine Small, Mary T. Anderson and Megan Bethel, who gave her gift certificate to her mother because of her young age.
Doctors Hospital's comprehensive digital imaging department enables patients to have a full range of testing depending on their needs. In addition to the Hologic Selenia full-field digital mammography system and the only 3-D automated breast ultrasound machine in The Bahamas, Doctors Hospital has the ability to offer patients a breast MRI which is useful in cases where there is either a high risk because of a woman's family history, or where initial screening shows a questionable lesion, requiring additional scrutiny.

Restore balance in all aspects of your life

It's a tough world out there and people are suffering through so much stress that it's almost impossible to keep their lives and health -- much less their finances - on an even keel. In an effort to help people restore some semblance of balance, The Nassau Guardian hosts an annual Health & Financial Fair.
The Nassau Guardian's Health & Financial Fair takes place on Saturday, February 22, at The Mall at Marathon between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Health and financial information, aerobic demonstrations, Zoomba demonstrations, health screenings, healthy food sampling, a sports fashion show, a blood drive, skin analysis and massages are all events that will take place on the day.
Health is a dynamic process because it is always changing. People all have times of good health, times of sickness and maybe even times of serious illness. As lifestyle change, so do levels of health.
People who participate in regular physical activity do so partly to improve their current and future levels of health as they strive toward an optimal state of wellbeing.
As lifestyles improve, health improves and people experience less disease and sickness. But physical health is only one aspect of overall health.
Other components that are just as important as physical health include social health (ability to have satisfying personal relationships), mental health (ability to learn and grow intellectually), emotional health (ability to feel comfortable expressing yourself and doing so appropriately) and spiritual health (which has the concept of faith at its core).
Wellness is the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth and potential through positive lifestyle behaviors and attitudes. By taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, people can improve their health on a daily basis.
Certain factors influence people's states of wellness including nutrition, physical activity, stress-coping methods, good relationships and career success.
With non-communicable diseases accounting for most of the global burden of diseases, doctors the world over are doing their best to stem the tide through stress prevention rather than cure.
In recent years medical professionals have been placing an even greater emphasis on health and wellness by encouraging people to take charge of their health and get on the path to wellness. They urge people to strive to live their lives fully with vitality and meaning.
Through its annual Health & Financial Fair, The Nassau Guardian aims to show people that wellness is optimal health and vitality, encompassing physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, interpersonal and social and environmental wellbeing. Through the fair The Nassau Guardian hopes to encourage people to have a greater awareness about their own health, and about taking care of their bodies.
To achieve balance people need to take care of mind, body and spirit and they should always remember that finances should not be left out of the equation.
While most people who hear the word "wellness" think of health first, through its fair The Nassau Guardian does its part in educating the public to the fact that there are several other forms of wellness that must be considered; with financial wellness being one of them, and getting them to look at subjects like controllable debt, the ability to afford to retire and the ability to educate their children at the collegiate level.
Through the fair the company wants people to realize that "un-financial health" can cause stress, health problems like blood pressure and heart disease, relationship stress, which can lead to abusive relationships and divorces, and family interaction friction.
As a lifestyle based on good choices and healthy behaviors maximizes the quality of life, through the Health & Financial Fair The Nassau Guardian hopes to help people avoid diseases, remain strong and fit and maintain their physical and mental health as long as they live.

Merry feet for Christmas

This is the season to be merry, however it is often not a merry time for the feet. Lots of holiday shopping usually means lots of walking and even sometimes running. In addition, it is time for lots of standing, while cooking, during parties, church and even Junkanoo. Further, most persons, especially women will be wearing new shoes during these activities. All these reasons can add up to painful feet!
A survey by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) showed that painful feet are a common occurrence during the holiday madness and the number one way women soothe their aching feet is by moisturizing their feet. Women admitted that stretching and massaging their feet were also on the list of favorite foot fixers. Here are a few more ways to keep your feet merry this holiday season.
Exercise your toes: Toe cramping is common due to long hours of walking, often in tight shoes. Avoid toe cramping by raising your toes, pointing and curling them for five seconds in each direction, then repeat 10 times. You can do this several times a day and you won't even break a sweat, but your toes will get relief.
Massage your feet: Women like it because it works. Massaging releases tension, increases circulation and rejuvenates the skin after a long day on your feet. Get out the lotion and rub those toes, better yet get a spouse, child or friend to do it. You can also use a foot bath or tub to massage the feet. Fill the tub with warm water and your favorite fragrant moisturizing soap and let the jets massage your feet. Persons who are diabetic should not soak or use hot water on their feet.
Elevate your legs: Long hours of standing, walking and evening sitting can cause the feet to swell especially at the end of the day. Reduce swelling by elevating the legs by sitting or lying down and lifting the legs above your heart.
Rotate your ankles: Because of swelling and long hours of standing and walking the ankles can get tired and ache. Relax your feet by rotating your ankles, turn your ankle up toward your head, down toward the floor then right and left, slowly five times. This loosens up the ankle joints and increases blood flow to the area.
Wear smart shoes: For the most part, during your holiday activities like shopping, cooking, etc., wear sensible, comfortable shoes and avoid high heels. Save the high heels for actual dressed up events. If you know you will be on your feet all day, wear comfortable shoes with arch support and a padded sole.
When purchasing shoes, do so in the afternoon and be sure to try them on and walk in them in the store to be sure they fit properly. Do not wear shoes that don't fit, they will cause blisters and other injury to the feet.
For persons who already have problems with their feet for example heel pain or Plantar Fasciitis or even an injury to the feet, it is vital to follow the podiatrist's instructions and continue to wear the prescribed foot wear during the holiday. It will prevent relapse and return of pain and other symptoms after the holiday.
Prevent injury: It is important to not over do it and prevent any injury to your feet while rushing to complete all the holiday activities. Pay particular attention to foot wear and walking surfaces. Drinking alcohol and other substances also increases your risk of injury. Continue your exercise routine during the holiday season. Be sure to stretch before and after exercising. Wear new sports shoes cautiously, by gradually increasing the time your wear them each day until you adjust.
If you follow these tips and suggestions you can prevent injury and ensure that your feet are also merry during this holiday season. However, foot injuries and pain, including fractures, ankle sprains, blisters, ingrown toe nails, etc., are common foot complaints during and after the holiday. If you do get an injury or develop foot pain, see a podiatrist as soon as possible. Remember the reason for the season. Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Man Expo 2013 is a weekend for the men

At The Little Pink Party by the Khanaali Media Group, women shop, sip, see, sample, snap and score -- but now it's time for men to get groomed, sip cocktails, enjoy fantastic entertainment, decadent delights and hot shaves and indulge in mini manicures and pedicures as Mario's Bowling and Entertainment Palace stages its Man Expo 2013.
After the success of last year's "Paint the Lanes Pink" event trade show for women, the marketing team at Mario's was bombarded about an event for men, and came up with Man Expo, to be held Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 at the bowling and entertainment facility on the Tonique Williams-Darling Highway.
"It's not a Father's Day event, but we decided doing the expo around the Father's Day weekend would be perfect," said Lisa Humes, a member of the Mario's marketing team. "We wanted to bring together everything under one roof that a man could think that he would want."
From cigar rolling in the smoker's lounge to electronics and gadgets, health information and screening, health and fitness demonstrations, hype bikes, cool antique cars, liquor sampling, photos with dad, cuts and shaves, luxury man bags, facials for men, mini manicures and pedicures for men, men's clothing boutique, shoe displays, novelty shop, styling and consultations, to daddy and me bowling -- there is expected to be something for everyone.
The highlight of the event will be the man cave in the Elements Lounge where live casino gaming (without legal tender) will take place.
"It's just a place for the man to come and relax," said Humes. "There will be live casino being done by the National Casino and Bartending School, no real money will exchange hands but there will be casino games," she said. And the drink of choice in the smoker's lounge will be Hennessey. Neck and back massages will also be available in the private massage room.
Men are also encouraged to enter to win a $1,500 man makeover that includes a shave straight down to new shoes. Kedar Clarke will style the winner who will be featured in Brutha Magazine. Men can enter online via their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mariosbowling.
Women are encouraged to be a part of Mari's Bowling and Entertainment Palace's Man Expo 2013, but Humes said they should remember that the event is all about the men in their lives, but that they too can partake in the free samples and offerings over the two days. And look for a gift for the man in their life that's a dad. She said even for the men that aren't dads as yet the Man Expo 2013 will just be a fantastic outing.
"We expect it to be extremely successful, and as successful as 'Paint the Lanes Pink' was for women," she said. "Our society often overlooks the man and we wanted to do a weekend that just focused totally on the man and we picked Father's Day weekend because we thought that would tie in well with Father's Day."
The regular bowling palace entry fee of $5 for persons 12 and older is in effect.

Man Expo 2013
Where: Mario's Bowling and Entertainment Palace
When: Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15
Time: 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. (Friday) and 2 p.m. - 10 p.m. (Saturday)
