New Year's Resolutions

Are your allergies or asthma keeping you from achieving your New Year's Resolutions? In January, most of us make New Year's resolutions for self-improvement. Many of us will vow to lose weight, exercise more often, or get our finances under control. But why not also use this as an opportunity to take charge of your allergies so they do not prevent you from achieving your goals?

One of the most popular New Year's resolutions is to eat healthier and lose weight. But as these resolutions and health regimens are about to come into full swing, many might find that instead of feeling well, they are feeling worse. And the reason might be due to one thing that should be helping--exercise. Not only can new workout routines be difficult for those with allergies and asthma, but several allergens can be found lurking in health clubs, making this normally healthy activity bothersome. By understanding what triggers your symptoms, those with allergies and asthma will be able to feel better and remain active. Gym & health club facilities can also harbor viruses & bacteria. It is important to make sure that you maintain safety practices, including washing your hands after your workout or showering right after.

The New Year is a good time to take charge of your health, including assessing your current allergy situation and if needed, make changes. If you are feeling well and your allergies are under good control, then you can keep doing what you are doing, stay on track with your prescribed treatments and know that the efforts you are putting into your health are all worth it. However, if your allergies or asthma are not under optimal control and are interfering with the quality of your life, now’s the time to contact us and let us help you by giving you the treatment you need and the care you deserve

Insurance Checkup

Now is also the time to complete a thorough review of your health insurance coverage and benefits. You will need to make informed decisions about your benefits as 2015 begins. Make certain that your plan allows you access to our clinic and that we have accurate updated information. Your plan may require a referral. And remember -- most insurance plans have a time limit for filing claims after which they may not cover your medical expenses. So make sure we have your new insurance information if you have any changes taking place in 2015. Ongoing access to the allergy and asthma care you require should be a critical factor in selecting your health plan for the New Year. If you have any questions with regard to your insurance coverage, our insurance specialists are ready to assist you in getting the full benefit out of your 2015 health plan to which you are entitled.
