Wellness Programs Reduce Employer Health Costs

Written by

A 2010 study by Dr. Katherine Baicker of the Harvard School of Public Health found that for every employer dollar spent on disease prevention and wellness programs, health costs fall by six dollars. New provisions in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) create incentives for employers to offer wellness programs. Most large companies already offer wellness programs to their employees.

Yoga Postures For The Low Back

Written by

Does your low back give you grief more often than not? Millions of people suffer from low back pain daily and default to medications to solve the problem. For most medically uncompromised back pain, the solution is rather simple, and yoga can play a huge part. Common back pain can result from a number of things ranging from sitting for long periods of time to constant involvement with high impact activities (i.e. running, tennis). The following yoga postures can help with strengthening and lengthening your low back. Remember to keep a steady breath pattern in all postures. I highly recommend doing these postures everyday ... before you leave for work and when you come home.

A recent study (September 2012) by Dr. Adam Tsai, a medical weight loss specialist with the University of Colorado, examined the effectiveness of weight loss counseling by medical assistants (MAs) versus primary care physicians (PCPs).

After six months, the control group (counseling by PCPs) lost just 0.9 kg +/- 0.6 kg (less than a pound). The MA counseling group lost 4.4 kg +/- 0.6 kg (about 10 lbs). According to Dr. Tsai's study, "Most primary care providers (PCPs), constrained by time and resources, cannot provide intensive behavioral counseling for obesity."

Non-Surgical Alternative Of Weight Loss

Written by

Obesity is evolving as a big health problem in America. Some people get rid of it by opting for surgical alternatives, while some go for non-surgical procedures. Though both the options can help you reduce weight, the latter is considered more beneficial. The reason is non-surgical alternatives do not have any side effects associated with them. Over and above, you lose weight naturally and experience increase in body’s stamina and flexibility. But still, a good number of obese rely on surgical treatments to shed weight.

Childhood Obesity and Hearing Loss

Written by

The New York Times' Nicholas Bakalar writes of a new study in The Laryngoscope linking obesity in teenagers to hearing loss. The study was written by a team of doctors from Columbia Univesity and NYU, combining otolaryngology (ENT, or "ear, nose and throat"), pediatrics and environmental medicine.

Which type of program is more effective for weight loss? A commercial program like Weight Watchers, or a medical weight loss clinic?

Dr. Adam G. Tsai, a physician and weight loss specialist at the University of Colorado in Denver, published the results of a new National Institutes of Health (NIH) study. The study compares the efficacy of a commercial weight loss program (Weight Watchers) with that of a “clinic-based intervention” (weight loss clinic).
