Healthy Holidays!

September 01, 2012

The holiday season is a great opportunity to reflect and spend time with family and friends. It’s also when celebrations and busy schedules interfere with plans for a healthy lifestyle. Fortunately,

Henry Ford Health System has resources to help keep you on track.

The first step you can take is selecting a Henry Ford primary care physician (PCP), if you don’t already have one. A PCP is trained to keep you and your family healthy and coordinate all your medical needs. He or she can identify and treat common illnesses and ensure that you have the right specialist for any chronic conditions.

Adding healthy behaviors to your life is another important step. There are many ways to do this, and some of them don’t involve joining a gym, lifting weights, running a marathon or doing other strenuous physical activity. Consider visiting our Vita wellness center, which offers massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga and more.

I encourage you to take the time to think of what you can add to your life to improve your health. Start the new year off in the right direction and get started on your path to wellness.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season,

Lynn. M. Torossian
President and CEO, Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital
