http://www.dreamstime.com/-image27703659Southampton, NY: February is American Heart Month but more than love is in the air. This year be good to your heart on Valentine’s Day, and give it some much needed exercise. A healthy heart is one of the most profound benefits of exercise and volumes of research now show that even a mild amount of daily activity can reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke and many other diseases and conditions. As you and your valentine consider the years you’ll be spending together in loving bless, consider that heart disease is the number one killer of men AND WOMEN in the U.S. So before you indulge in that box of chocolates or decadent dinner with your sweetie, plan for what’s really important, a healthy heart and a healthy life together.

Lyme Disease..Are you a victim?….Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece readers….bringing you information you may not be aware of…Today’s topic is Lyme Disease…Many of friends have been victims of Lyme disease and 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease…I was very ill for many weeks and really thought that I was loosing my mind because my doctor did not know what was wrong with me. Thinking back it would have seemed that doing a lyme test would have been the most logical call to action, unfortunately doctors hands are tied and many insurance agencies dictate which test can be administered. Since I did not complain about being bitten by a tick the test was not an immediate decision by my physician. I am not an exception to the rule there are thousands of people who are bitten by a tick and unaware of it. I am well now but not 100% better, I still feel some residual effects from the Lyme but I am very happy that I was finally diagnosed. Know this you have to be your own advocate and if you are not feeling well then 90% of time something is wrong…BE PERSISTENT and demand a test if your mind is telling you that it may be Lyme..
