ANCHOR LEAD: It's the time of year the season is changing… and maybe a good time to consider making some changes of your own for better health. Brian Osuch has more. (:60)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Spring is in the air and with it spring cleaning. Many people only think of spring cleaning as tidying up the home, but it's also the perfect time to kick healthy habits up a notch. Interventional Pain Management Physician, Natalie Strand says there are three small things that can really add up to big change.
CUT: (Strand) Number one, get seasonal, choosing foods that are in season not only make them taste better… but they'll be jammed packed with nutrients too. Number two, choose an exercise that's fun. Do something like a salsa class to really get your heart rate up while you're having a good time. Number three, make this the time of year that you get all of you yearly exams scheduled, and then you don't have to worry about it the rest of the year.
SCRIPT: Dr. Strand also says oral hygiene is a window to your overall health. So, it's a good idea to make sure you're following a proper routine.
CUT: (Strand) Brush twice a day and use an oral care product that does more than just protect. Colgate Total regimen is been proven to eliminate fifteen-times more bacteria and improve your mouth health in just two weeks.
