At Westchester Health, many of our patients have high blood pressure (hypertension) and come to us looking for ways to bring it down to healthier levels. In some cases, this means prescribing medication. However, for many people, lifestyle changes can significantly reduce their blood pressure numbers and lower their risk of cardiovascular disease without having to resort to prescribed drugs.
At Westchester Health, we firmly believe in the importance of vaccinations, for children and adults. Even though some people choose to “opt out” of getting immunized against disease, we recommend to all our patients, now more than ever, that they vaccinate themselves and their families, every year.
You feel tired, weak, achy and overall lousy. Your nose is running, your throat hurts, you’re sneezing and coughing, you have a headache and you’re running a fever. Do you have a cold or the flu? Is the flu even something you should still worry about in April?
