Better Sleep, Better Me

by Televox SuperUser on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 4:02 AM

Nothing beats a good night sleep, and for good reason. Getting enough sleep is essential for our body to function and stay healthy. However, whether or not you get a full night of sleep is entirely up to you. From staying up late working to going out with friends until the early morning, we’ve all had those nights where we’ve woken up the next morning running on only 3 or 4 hours. While you may feel like that small amount of sleep is enough to get you through the day, not getting enough sleep can turn into a habit, which will be severely detrimental to your health in the long run.

by Televox SuperUser on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 4:52 AM

At Northway Medical Associates, it’s our aim to provide expert medical treatment and care to all patients in and around Fulton and Baldwinsville, NY. As your trusted Baldwinsville and Fulton primary care physician, we believe that it’s important to educate all our patients about the effects of alcohol on the body, especially since April is Alcohol Awareness Month. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that men of legal drinking age don’t drink any more than two drinks per day and that non-pregnant women of legal drinking age don’t drink any more than one drink per day. If you happen to drink more than what these guidelines suggest on a regular basis, you’ll find that alcohol can affect many different parts of your body in harmful ways.
