Loving Our Leading Ladies to Better Health

Motherhood is a job that lasts a lifetime. Day after day, moms work tirelessly to raise and support their children, from adolescence to adulthood. No matter what age you are, your mother is there to support you, advise you, and love you unconditionally. This year we hope to bless mothers with the gift of health, supporting her with our expert services and advice. During the month of May, we not only want to focus on the many ways our mothers touch our lives but also shedding light on the importance of Women’s Health Awareness.

Helping your mother regarding her health is no easy task, but there are a number of ways to get started. The process begins with awareness of women’s health issues that warrant attention, including:

  • Arthritis Health

  • Bone Health

  • Heart Health

  • Physical Health

Arthritis in Women

Arthritis is a painful condition that leads to problematic inflammation in your body’s joints. Symptoms of arthritis include:

  • Joint pain

  • Stiffness

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Warmth

  • Decreased range of motion in the affected area

The two most common types are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Osteoarthritis targets bone joints, while Rheumatoid arthritis is considered an autoimmune disorder, affecting your joints and causing pain throughout your body’s organs.

A common sign of arthritis is specific, targeted pain and a desire to limit physical activity. If you’ve noticed a loved one changing their routine and slowing down physically, then it may be time for an appointment with a professional. Arthritis worsens over time if left unchecked, making regular appointments vital for the health of the patient. The good news is many medications can help deal with both types of arthritis. Whether you want to discuss prescription or OTC options, your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy pharmacist can provide insight on which treatments would be best. Don’t let arthritis stop the woman you love from enjoying life. Book an Arthritis & Me Consultation today!

Improving Women’s Bone Health

As women age, the calcium levels in their bones begin to diminish. In addition, during menopause, women can experience rapid bone loss due to hormonal changes. Calcium and vitamin D are among the supplements women can take to help keep their bones strong. You can help the strong women in your life stay strong as well by:

  1. Take a walk with them. Weight-bearing exercises are great for maintaining healthy bone density.

  2. Ensure they get enough calcium and vitamin D since both help build strong bones.

  3. Have her schedule a bone density scan to help determine bone loss and bone breaks. This scan should be repeated every two years to keep track of bone health.

  4. Talk to your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy Pharmacist to find out what other supplements and prescriptions can help the remarkable woman in your life maintain good bone health.

Healthy Heart Habits for Her

Get to the heart of the matter with the moms in your life to make sure they live happy, healthy lives. The best prescription-free options for heart wellness are proper eating habits and staying in motion. Whether she likes to dance, swim, go kayaking, or a brisk walk, make sure Mom gets her cardio in four times a week for at least thirty minutes. At her next doctor’s visit, ensure she discusses her blood pressure with her doctor. Don’t forget that your local TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy Pharmacist is an excellent ally for heart health. Stop in for a Her Heart Matters consultation session. During the session, Mom will walk away with:

  • A better grasp of what her blood pressure numbers mean.

  • Knowledge about her current prescription and OTC heart medications

  • Education on what consists of a heart-healthy diet

  • Comprehension of dealing with other conditions affecting heart health, such as high cholesterol and diabetes.

  • Understanding how pregnancy can affect blood pressure and other heart conditions

Book a Her Heart Matters consultation to ensure your mother’s heart health.

Physical Activity Keeps Her Going

After you get approval from a professional, exercise is the best medicine for the heart. Just as you would exercise the rest of your body, we recommend using cardio to rebuild the muscles in your heart for the best results possible. A body in motion leads to:

  • Less Inflammation

  • Improved blood flow

  • Better bone health

  • Promotes good mental health

  • More restful sleep

  • Optimized digestion

Moms play a vital role in our lives and helping them achieve premium health care is a small way you can thank her for all of her efforts in your life. Click here to book a Women’s Wellness Session at TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy.
