Diabetes and Heat: How to Stay Safe in Hot, Humid Weather

Summertime can bring extra challenges for people with diabetes. Research suggests that hot weather can lead to health issues for people with diabetes, making you more sensitive to high temperatures and humidity.

You may find it harder to keep your blood sugar levels under control, and you may be at increased risk for developing heat exhaustion.

So, when the weather heats up, it’s important to closely monitor your blood sugar levels and watch for possible symptoms that your body is not handling the heat very well. That way, you can take action before the situation becomes serious.

Heat and humidity can affect people with diabetes, including causing high and low blood sugars. We'll talk about what to do.

5 Foods High in Tryptophan That Help You Sleep and Fight Inflammation at the Same Time

Chances are, when you hear the word “tryptophan,” you think of sleep. The amino acid, which is found in foods like salmon, lentils, and of course, turkey, is notorious for making consumers feel like they need a good nap. That’s because tryptophan increases the body’s relaxation hormones, like serotonin and melatonin, leading to a sleepy, lethargic feeling post-meal.
Turns out, it might offer more nutritional benefits than just a good night’s sleep. Recent research suggests that higher levels of tryptophan can potentially aid in fighting inflammation, especially as we get older.

In case you're not in the mood for turkey.

Restorative Yoga Is All About Relieving Stress With Gentle Stretches-Here Are 6 Beginner Poses to Try

For someone who's never practiced yoga, the thought of contorting yourself may be far from your idea of relaxation and restoration. But don't be fooled-there are several different types of yoga, and it can look different depending on the modality. While you can always try a more intense, accelerated and strenuous form of yoga to get your heart rate up and muscles working (in other words, you can always practice yoga as a workout), the practice of restorative yoga is a slightly different type of yoga that may be just the right prescription for mental catharsis, muscle relaxation, and stress relief.

Restorative yoga is a relaxing, stress-relieving type of yoga that focuses on holding poses and stretches to ease tension and promote relaxation. Here are the health benefits to know, plus six beginner-friendly poses to try.

Should You Take a Food Sensitivity Test? Here's What Health Experts Have to Say

With all the health and diet content filling up your social media feeds, you may have noticed ads for at-home food sensitivity tests like Everlywell or Pinnertest, which claim to help identify underlying food intolerances in individuals.

Arizona on track to have second-highest number of Valley Fever cases in 15 years

Arizona's Family found that in 2021, our state is on track to have the second-highest number of Valley Fever cases within the last 15 years.

Dr. Frank Lovecchio said more construction could be causing the spike. "There are these spores or fungus in our dirt, if you aggravate the dirt by any means, dirt bike, construction, or certain gardening, the spores go out," said Dr. Frank Lovecchio.

Inhaling those spores can make people sick. While most people recover on their own, others can get chronic Valley Fever and stay sick for a long time. 'What does happen, sometimes, is it goes into your lungs and deposits other places in your body," said Lovecchio.

One Phoenix-area doctor thinks construction could be causing the spike in the number of Valley Fever cases in Arizona.

All About Cottage Cheese

The Cottage Cheese Comeback
It was the dairy queen until yogurt came along. At the peak of its popularity in the ‘70s, Americans scarfed down 5 pounds of the stuff per person per year. But as yogurt rose to fame on the wings of clever marketing, Americans soured on cottage cheese. Annual consumption dropped to just 2 pounds per person. But this once-forgotten dairy product is back on the upswing. It would have to be: America produces about 700 million pounds of it a year.

Once the darling of dieters, cottage cheese has taken a backseat to superfoods like yogurt. Now it’s time to rediscover this healthy high-nutrient protein.

The 7 Best Weighted Blankets of 2020 to Help You Calm Down, According to Sleep Pros

Similar to how an infant feels secure and cozy enough to go from screaming to sleeping in 60 seconds once wrapped in a swaddling blanket, weighted blankets are designed to help humans of all ages feel safe. Think of it like constantly being "little spoon," without the radiant heat of another human.

The deep-touch pressure they provide may help regulate mood and improve sleep (through triggering the release of sleep- and happiness-boosting hormones), and a 2020 review published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy suggests that weighted blankets can help ease anxiety, too. Something I think all of us could use right now!

That being said, certain populations should steer clear of—or at least consult with a doctor before using—a weighted blanket. These include anyone with obstructive sleep apnea, claustrophobia, kids younger than 3 or less than 50 pounds, anyone with type 2 diabetes or individuals with a chronic respiratory or circulatory issue, such as asthma or low blood pressure.

Starting at $99, these blankets have been proven to help you sleep more soundly and may help ease anxiety.

Researchers found that rooms with plants have less dust and mold than rooms without any foliage. Leaves and other parts of the plants act as natural filters to catch allergens and other airborne particles. Common low-light houseplants like Chinese evergreen or the peace lily can do the job. Violets and other plants with textured leaves might be even better trappers. Avoid plants with pollen or spores.
