It seemed as though every free moment I had was spent searching for internet bargains driving across town to run errands or making my best attempt to coordinate the equally busy lives of people I hadn t seen in 365 days. Instead of appreciating what the holiday season was supposed to bring about warm feelings relaxation celebration togetherness and the opportunity for self reflection I found myself counting the days until I could get back to my normal life. Not exactly what the holiday spirit is supposed to look like if you ask me. The vicious cycle of winter anxiety continued until the year I discovered Grownup Cocoa (see page 14 for a stellar recipe) and decided to entertain myself by drafting an early New Year s resolutions list. After I blotted the chocolate stains from my notebook I could clearly see all of my future goals line items that ultimately revolved around balance planning and positive thinking. In other words traits I needed immediately as well as in the upcoming year. In that moment I decided to quit feeling sorry for myself during the holidays and make a conscious effort to change the way I handled the seasonal pressure. Focusing on healthy goal setting a few months early actually relieved more stress than it caused. I created a realistic exercise regimen planned healthy meals set (and stuck to) a budget and scheduled uninterrupted relaxation time. The result everyone in my life including me became happier. The extra me time revitalized my mind body and spirit and helped me realize the concept of giving of myself was better in terms of quality rather than quantity. If the purpose of setting resolutions is to ultimately build a stronger better healthier and happier you what s the point in waiting until the following year to get started Spend meaningful time with your family (ideas on page 6) maintain your health (take a tip from Phoenix Coyotes players on page 22) and set realistic goals (like the healthy resolutions on page 4). I know you can do it. Cheers to a healthy holiday season and a prosperous 2013 Deborah Brandon Photography Sarah Perry is an Arizona native and NAU alumna who has always had a passion for storytelling and helping others. Her zest for life and experience as a marketing pro and communications expert at Arrowhead Health Centers has helped her explore new ways to find happiness through healthier living.

Sarah Perry Editor-in-Chief sarah healthstylemagazine.com Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 3 Mindful READY SET GOAl Feel like last year came and went faster than you could say 2012 We know the feeling. that s why there s no time like the present to start amping up for the New year. these easy-to-accomplish goals are guaranteed to give you an extra boost of wellness so you can say hello to 2013 in (Health)style. STep AWAy FrOM THe SMArTpHOne We love technology just as much as everyone else (yes we re addicted to Angry Birds too) but sometimes living in the information age can disconnect us from the real world. Screen slavery has also been linked to health disorders like damaged eyesight bad posture (back and neck pain) overstimulation of the brain and declining social relationships. Spend one meal a day with your mobile device in the other room we promise you ll survive. Chat with coworkers flip through the latest issue of Healthstyle or just sit there and savor your meal. With a little practice you ll be appreciating the break from constant digital stimulation in no time. eAT BreAkFAST 365 DAyS in A rOW You wouldn t expect your car to run without fuel right The same concept goes for your body. Resolve to eat breakfast every day this year. Eating in the A.M. can set the tone for your entire day and provide you with the nutrients your body needs to be alert awake productive and healthy. If you re a serial snoozer and don t have time to create a culinary masterpiece in the morning keep fresh fruit and all-natural granola bars on hand (we like Kashi Chewy Granola Bars in Honey Almond Flax yum ) for a low-sugar boost of whole grains fiber and protein. 4 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM Mindful WAlk WiTH A pUrpOSe Instead of feeling guilty for not being able to make it to the gym every day we suggest stressing less and moving more throughout your work day... by walking. (Yes we said walking.) Instead of rolling your chair to the printer stand up and embrace the few extra steps. Skip the company elevator and take the stairs. Use the last 10 minutes of your lunch break to stroll around the building. We bet you ll be blown away at the number of steps you actually take in a single day. Want proof Pick up a pedometer (available at your local drugstore for under 10). Monitor your daily steps and try to beat your record every day. Before you know it you ll be walking 10 000 steps a day the equivalent to about 500 calories or just under an hour on your gym s elliptical machine. If dropping a few extra pounds is on your to-do list this year we ll walk you through it... literally. TAke ADVAnTAGe OF HeAlTH cAre reFOrM BeneFiTS There s a lot of buzz around the Affordable Care Act including a new policy found on healthcare.gov that requires your insurance company to cover the cost of preventive care when you use an in-network provider. In other words that means your annual physical exam is free to you Kicking off 2013 with a complete wellness checkup is a great way to make sure you re healthy and happy in the upcoming year. Book an appointment with your favorite doctor to set health goals develop a realistic diet plan and ask about immunizations or checkups you ll need. Putting your complimentary health benefits to good use will give you peace of mind as you embark on the New Year. WAnT EVEn MORE BAnG FOR YOuR BuCK pAy iT FOrWArD Make 2013 all about random acts of kindness. Try to sincerely acknowledge a different person every day. Let your coworker know how much you appreciate their effort on your most recent team project. Swing by your grocery store s customer service desk to compliment the friendly clerk in the produce department. Offer to pay for the person s coffee in line behind you at the Starbucks drive-thru window. Pack a lunch for your honey the night before so they don t have to buy their meal. Be creative. You ll be amazed at how much boosting someone else s confidence will affect your own. Schedule your free physical exam at a clinic that has multiple services under one roof think family practice women s health pediatrics physical rehabilitation etc. That way you can set all of your appointments for the entire year without having to worry about remembering to book them down the road. Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 5 Mindful Healthy Families Make Happy Holidays by health expert Dr. keith Biggs 2 1 3 SiMpliFy yOUr MeAlS My wife Ruth and I have seven children and two grandchildren. She loves to cook but sometimes feels frustrated because she s stuck in the kitchen rather than playing with the kiddos. We ve learned that easier meals are better for the whole family. We like to cook a large turkey breast instead of spending hours preparing a whole bird. White meat is significantly lower in calories than dark meat and since there are fewer bones there is less waste and less carving time. It s also easy to maximize the nutritional value of holiday dinners by adding more fruit and vegetables to the dressing. You ll save time money and calories going for the easier healthier meal and everyone will be happy Need a healthy holiday miracle try these six tips for improving family relationships and personal wellness during the busiest season of the year DASH THrOUGH THe SnOW... er... DeSerT Okay so maybe we don t get much snow in the Valley but now is the best time of year to be outside in Phoenix and have some fun outdoors. Get the family geared up to participate in an organized charity race. Most of these races are only 5K (3.1 miles) in distance though some offer a shorter route and each supports a great cause. The entire family can either run or walk the course together not to mention the good dose of fresh air and exercise is a great way to reinvigorate each family member s positive attitude. There are plenty of races around every major holiday this season. Visit getsetaz.com for a complete list of 5K events near your home. GiVe TO OTHerS Let s face it. The holidays can be stressful and reveal a slew of reasons to feel down on ourselves limited finances not enough time health concerns and more. When I find myself focusing on my own problems or the problems within my family that s when I look for an opportunity to serve others. Looking outside of ourselves and taking action in easing the worries of others helps to take the focus off of our own problems and sometimes even helps us realize that what we were worried about wasn t really that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. An added bonus is that when we engage our children in these activities we teach them the values and blessings associated with a life filled with service to others. And the best part is that there is no better feeling than giving of our time talents and finances to help others along the way. 6 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM HAVe GOOD cenTS Make a shopping list and shop early. Remember that there is joy in giving but only if it doesn t cause the giver undue stress. Budget your money and don t submit to the pressure of spending more than you want to. Honestly can you remember every gift you received last year The truth is your kids probably can t either. My high school-aged daughter recently shared a quote with me that I thought was right on the money (excuse the pun). The best things in life aren t things. 4 MAke A liST AnD cHeck iT TWice Think of anything and everything you would like to do with your family this season and put each idea on a calendar that everyone in your home can see. There are many things in the greaterPhoenix area that cost little or no money. There are free (that s right free) light displays concerts open houses and celebrations at churches schools and venues throughout the Valley. Most are open to the public and many (even the ones at churches) are non-denominational. For example I currently have a patient who is playing Mr. Scrooge in a small community theater in my neighborhood. Tickets are cheap yet I know the time I ll spend with my wife and children will be priceless. True story I polled each of my children asking what they liked most about the holidays. Believe it or not the unanimous number one answer was spending more time with the family. 5 Mindful Photography by Doug Houvener Dr. Keith Biggs is a chiropractor and health expert who specializes in acupuncture physical rehabilitation and sports medicine at Arrowhead Health Centers in Mesa. He loves helping people of all ages feel better including his seven children and wife of 29 years. When he s not sharing his favorite health tips with others you can find him glued to a college lacrosse game or reading up on World War II aviation. BrinG in THe neW yeAr TOGeTHer Make New Year s Eve an at-home event this year regardless of everyone s ages. You can dance play games make refreshments and hold your children close. Tell them how much you love them and explain why celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of another is important. Share your resolutions and help them set their own goals. Make a family time capsule. Write down a list of things you re thankful for this year place them in an envelope and put them away with the holiday decorations. You ll have fun reflecting and enjoy rereading your thoughts next year. The at-home festivities will save a ton of money and you ll make memories your kids will never forget. 6 The holidays are a special time that can be easily filled with joy peace and better health. Take the time to make plans give of yourself and remember not to over-do. Express your love to your family and friends through words and actions. The result will be increased and lasting happiness and a healthy heart mind and body. Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 7 Mindful Volun-TEAM-ism Can volunteering grow healthier people and communities a local health care company thinks so. 8 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM Mindful Ever wonder what makes the holidays so warm and fuzzy Some blame the tingly feeling on holiday eggnog while others say it s the festive sweater from grandma that keeps them feeling cozy. We agree cocktails and cardigans might be big contributing factors but we give the most credit to the volunteering donating and other do-gooder things people do for each other this time of year. We all know that helping others makes your heart happy but did you know that being a charitable person can also keep it healthy Studies by the Corporation for National and Community Service show that there is a significant connection between volunteering and good health. Volunteers tend to live longer function better physically have lower depression rates and report less incidence of heart disease. That might explain why many of the 150 employees at Arrowhead Health Centers a multi-specialty series of doctor s offices in the greater-Phoenix Valley spend so much time volunteering. Helping people and keeping them healthy is what the holidays are all about says Dr. David Berg CEO of Arrowhead Health Centers. I love supporting great causes and I m proud to know my team at Arrowhead Health Centers feel the same way whether they re inside or outside of the office. Dr. Berg is a big believer in giving back. He has participated in many charity events that support organizations like the National Multiple Sclerosis Society the American Diabetes Association the Arthritis Foundation and other reputable non-profit groups. One of his proudest moments was supporting the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund s Bringing Music to Your Ears event last November. Dr. Berg and his wife Dr. Janice Johnston purchased and donated a first set of hearing aids to two hard-of-hearing children. Nicholas one of the children who received his first hearing aids told his mother he could hear things that he had never heard before like airplanes flying in the sky the pages turning in his favorite book and his Legos snapping together. It is so rewarding to help people with their health because it s easy for us to take our natural senses like hearing well for granted. Help children hear like Dr. Berg did by visiting oliveosmond.org. Dr. David Berg (right) and his wife Dr. Janice Johnston (left) joined Merrill Osmond to support the hard-of-hearing community at the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund s Hear in the Mesa 5K and Bringing Music to Your Ears events. They gave back. You can too Jill N. X-Ray Technician Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) has recently been brought to the media s attention as Robin Roberts from Good Morning America began her treatment with a bone marrow transplant from her sister. Unfortunately 70% of patients in need of a transplant don t have a compatible donor within their family so they must rely on anonymous donors. So when my neighbor s son Matthew was diagnosed with leukemia 20 years ago I made the decision to join the marrow registry. Five years ago I received a call that I was a match for a man with MDS. Knowing what Matthew s family went through I knew that taking one afternoon out of my life for a non-surgical procedure could give hope to a man and his 3 young sons. Protocol allows the donor and recipient to exchange identities after 1 year and I am happy to say my new friend and blood brother Patrick is five years cancer free. Matthew eventually found a donor and is leukemia free too Safe a life like Jill did by becoming a bone marrow donor at marrow.org. Jill donated her bone marrow in 2007 to save Patrick s life. Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 9 Mindful Volunteering is important for others emotional health because it lets them know that there are people in the world who love and care about them no matter what. Odina V. Medical Assistant I love to bake and cook so I bring homemade goodies into the office like jam salsa and tamales and ask for donations from my coworkers in exchange. Then I use the money I collect to buy clothing canned goods and other items for a local homeless shelter. I feel like it s my calling to help others get the things they need to stay healthy and happy. Want to follow in Odina s footsteps Visit homelessshelterdirectory.org to learn how you can donate time or needed items at a homeless shelter near you. Talia V. Care Management Associate I had the opportunity to spend a few weeks volunteering with friends in a small town in Mexico called Tepic Nayarit. Our goal was simply to spread love and let less fortunate people know that someone else cared about them and boy did we do that We went to an orphanage and played with children to a retirement home and painted the fingernails of little old ladies helped clean up a small village that was covered in trash hosted a large music festival made meals for hospital patients (many hospitals in Mexico don t provide meals for their patients even if they are there for a number of days) and did a ton of other things to help spread smiles. That was one of the most rewarding times of my life and I am always able to look back and reflect on it. Even though I struggled with the language barrier there was a mutual appreciation that was communicated clearly. As they say love has no language. I will always believe that. Take a tip from Talia and visit dwellingsnow.com to volunteer your time south of the border. Gabriella K. Patient Services Associate I attend Glendale Community College and I like to volunteer by taking notes in my classes for disabled students. Volunteering is important for others emotional health because it lets them know that there are people in the world who love and care about them no matter what. I like to volunteer for students because it warms my heart and makes me feel like I made someone s day. Seeing their smile is enough to brighten my whole day. Learn how you can help disabled students just like Gabriella did by calling the Glendale Community College Disability Services & Resources department at 623-845-3080.

I CAN T BELIEVE I ATE THE 16 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM Healthy Appetite Let the family in on your secret. If you re vocal about your health goals before the festivities start happening your relatives will already know they ll be wasting their breath when they offer you a second helping of mashed potatoes. If they do try to push extra food your way be consistent and politely say no thank you every time. Eventually even your most relentless relatives will get the hint. Stick to your schedule. Just because your sister wants to have dinner at 2 o clock doesn t mean you should skip meals to make up for incoming calories. If you know in advance your usual snack time will be replaced with turkey and stuffing it s okay to switch up your meal portions for the day. Trade lunch and dinner for smaller snack-sized servings think a small piece of fruit with a handful of almonds or Greek yogurt with granola. You ll feel sustained all day without having to miss out on nutrition. Arrive hungry. Yes we said hungry. If you re headed to a party we suggest ignoring the old eat-before-youget-there diet advice. Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 17 Chances are you re going to sample once you get there anyway (which would mean you d be overeating) and what s Eat slowly and take timeouts. Taking your time at the dinner table not only allows you to savor the delicious fare intended) but set a limit for festive treats and stick to it. It s okay to grab one cookie after dinner but don t finish off the whole tray. Take leftovers home. This practice serves multiple purposes. For starters you won t feel like you have to pile hefty portions of all 15 dishes onto your plate because you ll know you ll get to enjoy them later. You won t feel like you re missing out on anything and your host will feel flattered hearing you want to take extra food home. Visit your doctor. Your favorite provider may not be able to accompany you to family feasts but they can evaluate your eating habits and help you set realistic health goals Taking your time at the dinner table not only allows you to savor the delicious fare you only get to eat once a year it also gives your meal time to process making you feel fuller faster. the point of going if you don t get to celebrate by enjoying some of your favorite foods Just make sure you don t show up famished. If you re too hungry you re likely to eat everything but the poinsettia-patterned table cloth. you only get to eat once a year it also gives your meal time to process making you feel fuller faster. Go ahead indulge a little. But just a little. It s unrealistic to quit holiday food cold-turkey (no pun Healthy Appetite excuses excuses. Is Aunt Sally trying to serve up her famous holiday dish with an extra helping of guilt Here are six things you can say to spare her feelings and avoid purchasing larger pants. Your green bean casserole is indeed a work of art so I think I ll just admire it from afar. during an annual physical exam or quick check-up appointment. Added bonus you ll likely feel more health-conscious after your appointment making it easier to eat less and bypass the unneeded calories. Get a daily dose of exercise. Make it a priority to be physically active for at least 30 minutes every day. The folks at Discovery Communications (the Discovery Channel) recently noted people who exercise regularly are less likely to overeat. Being active will also help you prevent gaining weight and give you an all-natural energy boost which is always needed around the holidays. Don t be an overachiever.

Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 21 Doctor s Orders What has Shane Doan standing tall A behind-the-scenes team that knows exactly how to stick it to hockey injuries. 22 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM Doctor s Orders STrOnG STrOnG National Hockey league (NHl) pros Mike Smith and Shane doan have conquered the Jobing.com arena and even the Olympic games but they haven t done it alone. learn about the behind-the-scenes team they can t live without. Photography by Deborah Brandon Photography Behin d e v ery TeAM i s A noTher TeAM home their first Pacific Division title in the history of the team under the leadership of Shane and Mike. Hockey may be a game but these guys don t play around. That goes for off of the ice too. Even when Smitty and Doaner aren t clad in NHL jerseys they re doing some serious work. The hazard of hockey pucks speeding across the ice at over 100 miles per hour and jarring hits from 200 pound men wearing razor-sharp skates often result in broken bones lacerations concussions dislocated joints split fingernails and more and that s Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM 23 Even if you re not a diehard fan of the coolest game on earth it s easy to be wowed by Shane Doaner Doan and Mike Smitty Smith s impressive list of career achievements. Forgive our gushing but these NHL pros are worth being star struck over. Their combined accomplishments (just to name a few) include playing in the 2006 Winter Olympics participating in multiple NHL All-Star Games earning a combined five gold and silver medals at the IIHF World Championships and the NHL record for most saves in a regulation shutout victory. Just last year the Phoenix Coyotes brought Doctor s Orders all in a day s work. Hockey can be incredibly taxing so it s important for Shane Mike and their NHL colleagues to stay on top of physical afflictions before their livelihoods are put at risk. So how do the pros take care of themselves With other pros of course. so it s important that I take care of myself now. Shane agrees. I think every hockey player worries about experiencing pain. My right shoulder and knee have been through a lot so it s important to have different people working with me so I can stay in shape and do my job. I m a huge believer in chiropractic. Having the best alignment limits my chances of being injured. -Mike Smith Medical experts like chiropractors general practice doctors physiotherapists acupuncturists massage therapists and trainers are just a few types of health mavens who band together to look out for Mike Shane and the rest of their teammates. My team off the ice keeps me in the best physical shape possible says Mike. I ve had my fair share of injuries and I want to have a healthy life after hockey How exactly do these health care specialists keep star players in tip-top shape We work together as a team says Dr. Chuck Clark who doubles as the team s go-to chiropractic specialist and lead rehabilitation expert at Arrowhead Health Centers in Scottsdale. Professional athletes push their bodies to the limit every day so it takes a whole team of health pros to keep them on top of their game. Why is Healthstyle smitten for Smitty and mind-blown by doan Shane Doan This team captain and forward has an impressive resume but chalks his greatest career achievements up to playing in the Olympics and leading the Phoenix Coyotes to the Conference Finals of the NHL playoffs last year. With a wife four children and a family full of Canadian cowboys and hockey pros (he has two cousins in the NHL) this health advocate is all about staying active. Shane s Healthstyle advice for others I think people can stay healthy by finding physical activities they re passionate about and pursuing them. Being part of a team helps you connect with your community and strengthen your relationships. Mike Smith Smitty as he s most often called on the ice has much more than just a goal to tend. While setting the NHL record for the most saves in a regulation shutout victory and helping his team take home the Pacific Division Championship last year are inspiring those feats are small potatoes in comparison to keeping up with his former Canadian Olympic skier wife and one-and-a-halfyear-old son (who started walking at only nine months). Mike s Healthstyle advice for others Everyone needs to stay active. Whether you re walking for 20 minutes a day or hitting the gym for an hour you ll feel better about yourself physically and mentally. 24 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM Doctor s Orders Think the only thing Mike Smith has to defend is a goal Think again.

You have to have a well-rounded group with different talents working together. That s important for any team not just when it comes to hockey. -Shane Doan As the captain and goaltender of the resurgent Phoenix Coyotes Shane and Mike understand the importance of working with one another to achieve victory. A team happens when people come together and gel as a group to accomplish something they set out to do says Mike. They re a support system a family. The same idea applies to health. One person can t do it all. You need different people hands and eyes to help. Everyone wants to feel like they re part of something bigger than themselves says Shane. That s where being part of a team comes in. You have to have a well-rounded group with different talents working together. That s important for any team not just when it comes to hockey. Dr. Clark recognizes that without teamwork it s difficult to properly treat patients. Sometimes it takes more than one kind of rehabilitation treatment to help players like Mike and Shane overcome pain from their hockey battle wounds says Dr. Clark so working together and having an open line of communication is the only way to support these guys and make sure they re getting the care they need. Put Health Care on the Power Play Did you know chiropractic acupuncture massage therapy and some of the other techniques acclaimed by hockey pros are used to treat common ailments like osteoarthritis sinus infections sleeping conditions migraines asthma pregnancy pain stress pediatric disorders and more My son Aksel started seeing a chiropractor when he was four days old.

When Winter Weather Makes Your Knees Say Snap crackle pop if you re one of the 27 million americans living with osteoarthritis you know those sounds aren t coming from your cereal bowl. While there may not be scientific studies that prove this theory chilly winter temperatures are notorious for amplifying joint pain says raychel Kelly director of the nationally recognized Osteoarthritis Programs at arrowhead Health Centers. the good news is our patients don t have to live with these sneaky symptoms because we know exactly how to help ease their knee and back pain. the secret raychel says there are several techniques especially when combined that you can use to abolish seasonal aches and kick joint pain to the curb. TAke A SHOT MAke yOUr MOVe When it s cool and damp outside you may be less likely to get up and exercise but being a couch potato is bad news for your joints. Regular exercise especially physical rehabilitation warms up your joints and helps improve your flexibility and range of motion. Expert suggestion make regular appointments (inside a warm cozy office) with a licensed physical therapist or chiropractor who can show you how to exercise your injured joints properly without causing further damage or pain. 1 While a quick dose of spiked cider might help you forget about your sore joints Raychel recommends a different type of shot to her patients with achy knees. Hyaluronic acid is an all-natural lubricating medication that can be injected into your knees to ward off chronic pain says Raychel. The shots are safe painless and also approved by the FDA making them a great option to use along with physical rehabilitation. BOnuS TIP Make sure you get your injections done at a doctor s office that has a live image guidance machine called a fluoroscope (floor-uh-scope) says Raychel. Studies from the OsteoArthritis Centers of America show that even an experienced clinician can miss the joint space up to 30 percent of the time without a fluoroscope. 2 28 Winter 2012 Healthstyle MagazineTM SAVe THe cOOkieS FOr SAnTA We know it s hard to resist tasty treats especially when they re everywhere this time of year but carrying excess weight can be dangerous for your joints. Every extra 10 pounds we carry on our body is equal to 1 000 pounds of pressure on our knee joints says Raychel. Extra weight speeds up the degeneration process and causes more pain. 3 4 Doctor s Orders Photography by Doug Houvener BrAce yOUrSelF Feel like you could use a little extra support sometimes We bet your joints feel the same way. Unloading knee braces create a small space inside your joint to provide stability and immediate relief from bone on bone osteoarthritis. Additional braces and durable medical equipment (DME) are also available and helpful for your wrist back elbows and other joints. BOnuS TIP Not all braces are created equal says Raychel.
