In my search for ways to be healthier, I ran across this Web site and because of the wealth of knowledge I discovered, I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you! Navigation is exceptionally straightforward as well. You basically want the Consumer Health Library.
Once Daily – Here you will find a daily interactive video. While I was there, the video was about Automated External Defibrillators and the impact they’ve had on the medical community. The video included questions for you to answer, a full transcript of the video and it even had the option of sending it to your friends and family.
Featured Videos – While I was browsing, there were two featured videos. One was on breast cancer and the other was on Type 2 Diabetes. Both answered important questions and were very informative.
Special Health Presentations – I found a video here too! It was about what conditions can lead to heart failure. I didn’t know that heart failure affects almost five million people in the U.S. And the idea of a global number is almost terrifying.
Health Headlines – Here you will find some of the topics that are in the headlines. I found five articles listed while I was visiting. The one that stuck with me the most was on Body Image. It is amazing how many people have a negative body image and I’m certainly not exempt! Here you can learn about ways to change how you think about your body image. There were also articles on Cirrhosis, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Health Awareness – This is something I’ve talked about quite a bit since the New Year and it’s all about finding ways to keep your resolution to be healthier.
Health Showcase – Here you will find a health site highlighted. While I was there, it was Heart Authority. Heart Authority is an educational Web site devoted to helping you learn all there is to know about your heart and keeping it healthy.
View All Health Topics – You’ll find this option at the top of the page. If you click it, it will take you to an alphabetical listing of all the health topics they have information for.
Search – You’ll also find this near the top of the page. Just type in what health topic you’re looking for and click Go.
Here’s to living healthier this year and having the resources to learn how!
