Fall Into Good Health: My Healthy Life Magazine is Here

A lot of people think of making changes when the new year rings in, but when it comes to being healthier, any time of year is a good time for change.

A diagnosis of diabetes can mean a big change in lifestyle and habits. When Michael Pritchard learned he had the adult form of Type 1 diabetes, he had a lot of questions. Read about how The Diabetes Center at Mission Hospital provided support.

Fall is a good time to enjoy comfort food — in a healthy way. You’ll find tempting recipes for Curried Butternut Soup, Cauliflower Pizza, and Eggplant and Tomato Gratin.

If it’s inspiration you’re looking for, read about young Noah Woods’ battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Amy Mohl has an amazing story to tell about how her heart stopped one day. And, learn how Jenny Owens of Waynesville is “kicking cancer’s butt.”

There’s plenty to read and learn about in this issue — vertigo treatment, a bladder health quiz, choosing an exercise partner and more—so we hope you’ll take time to enjoy the season’s change, and let us help you be well, get well and stay well.
