Celebrate Local Foods: Fresh Salsa

August 1st, 2017 | No Comments | Posted in Nutrition
You may think fruits and vegetables are too expensive or you just don’t like the way they taste. But eatright.org says your local farmers markets can help you overcome these barriers. In many cases, food at the farmers market is more affordable and tastes better than that at a commercial grocery store because it is locally grown and naturally ripened.

Taste is a key deciding factor in our food choices and delicious, fresh produce can help us eat the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables. And while you are there, take advantage of the abundance of ripe, juicy tomatoes and make Pico de Gallo, a simple, economical and beta-carotene-rich salsa recipe.

Pico de Gallo

1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro or parsley
1/4 cup finely-chopped white onion
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, finely chopped *
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup diced cucumber or radishes (optional)
1/2 avocado, seed removed, diced (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, mix well.
  2. Cover and chill for 1 to 4 hours to allow flavors to blend.

* To adjust the heat, use more or less jalapeno.

Wildwood Staff Spotlight – Seth Sorkin

August 1st, 2017 | No Comments | Posted in Staff Spotlight
As a personal trainer at Wildwood Athletic Club, the most rewarding part of my job is seeing the impact that regular exercise can have on a person’s life. Since a young age, fitness has always played a large role in my life. I then decided my goal would be to share that lifestyle with others by pursuing a career in fitness. I received my bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University in exercise physiology, and then shortly after completed my exercise physiologist certification through the American College of Sport Medicine. I enjoy working with a wide variety of people, but specifically enjoy working within Wildwood’s clinical exercise programs.

I am a firm believer in the Exercise Is Medicine approach. Throughout college, I had many opportunities to gain experience within clinical exercise settings, especially with cardiac rehab programs and working with the senior population. My personal approach to fitness is simple… It needs to be fun and enjoyable!

ProMedica OnDemand: 24/7 doctor visits

August 1st, 2017 | No Comments | Posted in Wellness

Modern technology has changed the experience of doctor house calls. Apps are making it easy to video chat with a doctor for quick and convenient medical consultation.

According to information and analytics firm IHS, the annual number of virtual doctor consults are growing rapidly and expected to reach up to 5.4 million by 2020. Major insurance carriers are following suit with the trend by expanding coverage to include these virtual visits.

Earlier this year, ProMedica launched its virtual visit service, ProMedica OnDemand, which allows patients to talk with U.S. board-certified providers from a mobile app or website. The service offers 24/7 access for patients of all ages.

“ProMedica OnDemand offers patients a convenient, affordable way to get the care that they need when they need it,” said ProMedica Physician David Knieriem, MD. “Due to busy schedules and time commitments, Sometimes it’s difficult for people to get away from home or work. This gives patients one more way to see a provider and receive a medication”

According to Dr. Knieriem, the telemedicine service is ideal for conditions such as allergies, bronchitis, cold and flu, pinkeye, rashes or urinary tract infections.

“Through the webcam we are able to walk you through a basic physical exam,” explained Dr. Knieriem. “Our platform gives you the ability to upload pictures. allowing us to take a closer look. Through this combination of a thorough history and a basic physical exam, we are able to diagnose and treat these conditions with confidence.”

After the virtual visit, the patient receives a visit summary, which can be sent to their primary care provider if desired. Prescriptions may also be sent immediately to the patient’s pharmacy if needed. The visit takes an average of 10 minutes and costs $49 or less, if included in a patient’s insurance plan.

“I really enjoy practicing telemedicine,” said Dr. Knieriem. “It feels like it’s one more way to improve the patient experience and get them the care that they need”
