Healthy Food Promotion Week

    From December 18 to 24, a Week of promoting healthy eating is being held in Russia as part of the National Health Project. Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet helps to avoid metabolic disorders and associated diseases. Good health is an effective result of working on yourself, your food preferences, including giving up delicious, but not necessary treats for the body. And then your body will reward you with wonderful well-being and longevity. One of the most important components of a healthy lifestyle, which determines the state of human health by more than 50%, is nutrition. Meetings with doctors, explanations, conversations, lectures, printed materials contribute to familiarization with the basics of healthy nutrition for vacationers of the sanatorium "Krasivo".

    The occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, and oncology is facilitated by an unbalanced diet, abundant in simple sugars, saturated fats, and excess calories, but deficient in important nutrients. Aggressive advertising of fast food, a huge range of processed products, and cunningly constructed marketing by retailers encourages excessive consumption of harmful products. It is important to understand this and fill your daily food basket correctly. There are simple rules that make it possible to make a diet not only healthy, but also optimal for a particular person:

1. The balance between energy coming from food and its consumption.

2. Limit salt intake to 5 g per day (1 tsp).

3. Consumption of at least 400 g of seasonal vegetables, fruits, legumes.

4. Reducing the amount of fat. Don't overeat!

As the ancients said: "Let food be your medicine! Otherwise, the medicine will become food!"

Injury prevention in winter

    In winter, we get most of our injuries on the streets. In a number of their reasons, banal haste and ice are in the first place. Typical injuries are fractures of the radius, fractures of the ankles and collarbone, bruises, ligament damage of the ankle and knee joints, fractures of the shin bones, traumatic brain injuries. Injuries are especially dangerous for the elderly. Even a small load during a fall can result in a hip fracture for them. Ice is a particular danger. To avoid injury, we remind you of the simple rules:

1. Walk slowly, on bent legs, slightly relaxing them at the knees and leaning on the whole foot;

2. It is very important not to keep your hands in your pockets (with fixed hands, the probability of not only falling, but also a fracture increases);

3. Having slipped, you need to have time to group up, be ready to fall;

4. It is best to fall on your side, in no case should you land on straight arms;

5. It is undesirable to leave the house at night, in very cold weather, when it is snowing and slippery;

6. It is advisable for elderly people to use a cane or walk with their loved ones, this is especially important when crossing the street, when descending stairs and climbing up it;

7. During icy conditions, stay away from the roadway and in no case run over it! The braking distance of cars increases significantly at this time.

    In the sanatorium "Krasivo", doctors hold talks about injury prevention, distribute memos and booklets on the topic to vacationers and urge them to take care of themselves and children!

Week of prevention of consumption of nicotine-containing products

From December 4 to December 10, 2023, the Week of prevention of consumption of nicotine-containing products is taking place. The purpose of the event is to reduce the level of tobacco consumption among both adults and adolescents. According to official statistics, over the years of the state policy aimed at protecting citizens from tobacco smoke and the consequences of tobacco use, the prevalence of smoking in the country has been steadily decreasing. Nicotine–containing products cause the same harm to the body as tobacco products, and myths about their harmlessness are only well-planned misinformation of the tobacco industry. Tobacco smoking is a major public health problem. An adequate preventive action plan should be drawn up based on an understanding of the risk of developing dependence on tobacco use, as well as the most significant population and individual factors in the formation of smoking habits.

The staff of the sanatorium "Krasivo" live in harmony with the motto - "Lead a healthy lifestyle!". This festive week, sports and information events are held in the sanatorium "Krasivo" under various slogans – "Sport prolongs life", "Replace a cigarette with a candy", "Smoking is not fashionable" and others. Doctors have prepared lectures, talks, leaflets, films and videos about the dangers of smoking. Everyone can get specific recommendations that will help to cope with addiction. You can become a prisoner of tobacco very quickly, so the best way is not to start smoking, and if it does happen, then work hard and quit the bad habit, otherwise it will be too late.

Remember that your health is only in your hands!

Antimicrobial Resistance Week is taking place in Russia from November 20 to 26

This year, the World Antimicrobial Resistance Week is held under the slogan "Let's join forces to counter antimicrobial resistance". Antimicrobial resistance (UPP) occurs as a result of the gradual mutation of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, and their loss of susceptibility to drugs, which complicates the treatment of infections and increases the risk of the spread, severe course and fatal outcome of diseases. Drug resistance makes antibiotics and other antimicrobials ineffective and gradually complicates or makes it impossible to treat infections.

The World Antimicrobial Use Week is an annual global campaign designed to stimulate knowledge and understanding of the problem of SCP and to help all parties who have a leading role in reducing the formation and spread of SCP – the public, representatives of sectors interested in the implementation of the "One Health" concept, and policy makers – in the introduction of best practices to solve the problem. Sanatorium "Beautifully" joins the infocompania. The events held by the doctors of the sanatorium "Krasivo" are relevant and significant.

Week of prevention of respiratory diseases

Medical workers of the sanatorium "Krasivo" conduct infocampania - Breathing is life. The quality of our breath is the quality of our life. Our breathing is closely connected with our emotions, feelings and experiences. We breathe easily when we are happy. We lack breath when we are outraged. The breath accompanies us everywhere, all our life! Our breath is our friend and helper.

It is important to remember that respiratory diseases are divided into infectious (influenza, pneumonia, tuberculosis), inflammatory (bronchitis, tracheitis, pleurisy) and allergic (bronchial asthma). In addition to infections, harmful environmental factors have a negative impact on the respiratory tract. Therefore, in order to avoid respiratory diseases, it is necessary to adhere to some preventive measures.

Prevention of respiratory diseases:

• In the first place - walking in the fresh air is the key to respiratory health.

• Proper breathing. Proper and natural breathing is breathing through the nose, passing through its cavity, the air enters the nasopharynx, where it becomes cleaner and warmer.

• Breathing exercises. As a prevention of respiratory diseases, it is advisable to do breathing exercises daily. For example, Strelnikova's breathing exercises.

• Healthy lifestyle, physical activity. Proper nutrition, hardening, quitting smoking — all this helps to increase the body's resistance to infections.

• Avoid large crowds. Wear personal protective equipment during the epidemic of viral diseases.

• Follow the rules of personal hygiene. Wash your hands after the street and visiting public places.

Take care of yourself and be healthy!
