2019 goals

2019 goals

By Dr. Ralph Strother | Medical Doctor | INcare | HEALTH

Many of us set fresh, exciting wellness goals for the new year, only to get side-tracked before we’ve gained any momentum. My best advice is to start by making small changes first. Remember – small successes build large victories. And research shows it takes 21 days to form a new habit, so try to really commit for your first three weeks. It can make it easier to stick with your plan for the long-term. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Ask Dr. Renee Walker about what inspires her day-to-day, and her face lights up. “What I absolutely love is when I come in and meet with people and talk to them. A lot of them have been through very tough situations, and when we work together they can turn things around. I love seeing how they work themselves into a better, healthier mindset. It’s really inspiring to see.”

Shingles and the new vaccine

Shingles and the new vaccine

By Dr. Ralph Strother | Medical Doctor | INcare | HEALTH

It often starts as an unusual pain, maybe some tingling… and then a rash sets in. Shingles! While it may be common (almost one in three Canadians may be affected by shingles), it can be quite painful. And, too often, some fail to realize that the pain from shingles can last for months – long after the rash has healed.

As a physician, I have been watching Shingrix – the newest vaccine against shingles – through the late Phase III trials and approval. Interestingly, Canada was the first country to approve the new vaccine, and our physician team here at INLIV had it on order as soon as the announcement of its approval for use in Canada in October 2017.

It seems like such a good idea: this year, your resolution is to get fit and stick to it! You’re determined, you’re ready, and you head to the gym in January with a playlist full of upbeat tunes and a new stick of deodorant. But before you know it, your gym bag and fitness goals are gathering dust under the couch.
