According to a study recently published in the April (2016) issue of PLOS ONE, researchers from the University of California, San Diego report that higher levels of Vitamin D are associated with reduced risk of cancer. In countries where there’s less available sunlight, populations tend to have a deficiency in Vitamin D, and there are higher incidences of colon cancer. You can increase your levels of this “sunshine” vitamin by going outside for leisure strolls, or eat delicious meals with salmon and tuna prepared by a live-in caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach.

Have you ever wondered how cancer cells proliferate so quickly? A person diagnosed with malignant cancer has cells that feed on glucose, the main “food” that fuels the rapid spread of cancer throughout the body. According to McGill University, cancer cells are reported to use glucose “at rates tens or even hundreds of times larger than that of normal cells.” When glucose is scarce, cancer cells use an enzyme to feed on other nutrients in the body to grow. While researchers are finding ways to stop cells from producing this enzyme, we can do our part by watching what we eat, especially if we are at risk for any kind of cancer due to lifestyle, environment, or genetics. A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach offers high quality in-home cancer care for those who are going through chemotherapy.
The side effects of chemotherapy take a toll on the cancer patient’s emotional and mental health while causing physical discomfort, such as diarrhea, nausea, constipation, mouth and throat sores, and fatigue. The stress of caring for an elderly loved one with cancer will wear you down over time; when you start to feel overwhelmed, you should look into live-in or live-out cancer care at home. Self-care means hiring a competent, trained caregiver who will lighten your burdens so you can rest while they wait on your elderly loved one hand and foot. If you feel bad about hiring outside help, your guilt will melt away when you see the level of superior cancer care delivered by A-1 Home Care’s certified nurse assistants who live locally in Huntington Beach or neighboring cities.

A home is more than just the house in which you reside in. More than just a shelter for yourself and your belongings, a home is the place in which you can come back from the stress of daily life and societal restrictions and simply relax. It’s the place where you can let loose and forget about entertaining any notions of small talk or other social norms. In simpler terms, home is a place to be yourself. So naturally, this may pose a problem for those who, due to injury or illness, may be in need of assistance around the home. While the thought of having just any person, who isn’t a friend or family, enter your personal space can have potential for some discomfort, it may be necessary in order to improve your situation. This, however, does not have to equate to a stressful experience.
