National Nursing Week

National Nursing Week

National Nursing Week 2016 runs from May 9th through May 15th across Canada.

Nurses comprise the largest group of health care professionals within the healthcare workforce and therefore play a pivotal role in provision of health service to the community at large.

Over the years, Bernstein Diet & Health Clinics has established as reputation for success, integrity, and innovation in the field of weight loss and the study of obesity. This success would not have been possible without the support of our frontline key players, our dedicated Nurses and Medical Administrative Staff.

We would like to commemorate International and National Nurses Week by saluting our nurses for their dedicated service to our organization. We would also like to acknowledge the staff for their commitment to their patients, whose lives they influence every day…

At this happy occasion we would also like to recognize all our Administrative Staff and Medical Receptionists as we have just passed the Administrative Professional Day (or Secretary Day) on April 27.

Happy Nurses Week… keep up the good work that you all do!

Asthma Relief

May 3 is World Asthma Day. Every year, the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) organizes this day to raise awareness for asthma care around the world.

Asthma is very common and very complex, and anyone can be at risk. Symptoms very from person to person, including regular coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, and a feeling of tightness in the chest. Symptoms may fluctuate from appearing frequently to rarely.

People with asthma either have inflamed airway lining and produce more mucous, or sensitive muscles surrounding the airways which twitch and tighten. In either case, breathing is substantially more difficult.

Losing extra stored fat will result in your lungs not having to work so hard to supply oxygen to your tissues. On our program, you can look forward to breathing easier and reducing or eliminating your need for puffers and other medications.

Contact us for more information on how our diet program can help you manage chronic health problems.

Autoimmune Arthritis

May 20 is World Autoimmune Arthritis Day. This day is observed to promote awareness about arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks normal joint tissues, typically in the hands and wrists, but can also cause stiffness and inflammation on other areas of the body.

If you have persistent discomfort related to suspected arthritis symptoms, speak to your doctor. Early diagnosis and treatment can help slow disease progression.

Losing even 15 pounds can produce significant benefits. Losing weight removes stress from joints to achieve better mobility and much less pain. Swelling of arthritic joints reduces with weight loss, which reduces pain and improves movement range, significantly improving quality of life.

Contact us for more information on how our diet program can help you manage chronic health problems.
