Staying healthy has been on everyone’s mind lately. Each of us has faced unique challenges and health-related concerns during the last several months. Some of the most important things we can do for our health include staying caught up on our vaccines, getting exercise, eating well, and supplementing our diet with vitamins. In this changing world, we need to make sure we take care of ourselves and our families. At Ridge View Pharmacy, we want to support you in a healthy lifestyle. We have everything you need to take care of yourself. We provide vaccines, which are an important way to protect yourself from getting viruses and diseases.
It is important to get a flu shot every year to assist your immune system in fighting the virus. Receiving the vaccine can prevent you from spreading the illness to your loved ones.
For those 55 and older, the Shingles shot is very important. Seniors who contract this illness can be very miserable and take a long time to recover. The vaccine will help prevent you from getting this devastating infection.
There are also many other vaccines available that could help protect your family. Our pharmacists would be happy to give you more information on any of them so you can decide what would be best for you and your loved ones.
Don’t forget your vitamins! They are a very important way to stay healthy. Some of the most commonly recommended supplements are Vitamin C and Vitamin D. Vitamin C is a very important nutrient that supports your immune system, helps repair your body’s tissues, and assists with the absorption of iron. Vitamin D is also very important, and we recommend that our patients take it. It has many benefits, such as keeping bones, teeth, and muscles healthy.
Your body needs to move! Don’t forget to exercise. If you’re just starting an exercise regimen, be sure to follow your doctor’s guidance. Just a little bit of regular exercise can create a huge improvement to your health. Remember to be consistent, and that means working out three to five times a week.
Stop in and see us at Ridge View Pharmacy. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have, and there is no appointment needed, and no co-pay with most insurances.
