Sometimes it can be difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle in our overly stressful and constantly busy society.  Nonetheless, if we want to improve our quality of life, we have to start by changing our bad habits.  The best ways to prevent health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, or eating disorders is to eat a healthy diet, keep stress to a minimum, avoid alcohol abuse, not smoke, and to exercise regularly.

At the Nutrition and Dietetics Unit of Xanit Health we have a very important goal: to prevent ailments like obesity and diabetes.  Not only are these the most common health problems in the 21st century, they also present such mild initial symptoms that it is rare for people to feel they need to go to the doctor and thus we lose our chance for an early diagnosis.

In order to improve communication with our patients, we have taken a step forward by starting to use new information and communications technology (ICT).  At Xanit Health, we have created a service run through the WhatsApp messenger that allows patients to contact their dietitian directly, in real time, so that they can ask questions and get answers immediately.

We also offer patients who come into our office the option of having a personalized study done in which a dietitian provides them with a detailed nutrition analysis.  Each patient is then given a personalized nutrition sheet to follow.  In addition, we offer a Nutritional Coaching service in order to help our patients learn how to follow their personalized plans at home with their families and thus be able to truly achieve their goals.

An essential first step in preventing health problems is to promote awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  This should begin with children, since it is clear that when good habits are learned early on they last into adulthood, creating a direct effect on overall quality of life.

In light of this goal, today, Monday May 20th at 7:30pm, Rafael Estrada, manager of the Nutrition and Dietetics Unit of Xanit Health, will present an informative talk on the main aspects of eating healthy.  This talk will take place in the Cultural Room (Sala de Ámbito Cultural) of the Corte Inglés on the Avenida de Andalucía in Málaga.

Additionally, we are pleased to offer a free body composition measurement to everyone who attends.

The talk is free and you may confirm your attendance by contacting us at: martina@xanit.net.

We hope to see you there!
