In recognition of "Men's Health Month," the Minnesota Chiropractic Association (MCA) is joining the Men's Health Network (MHN), a non-profit educational organization that promotes the health of men and their families, in encouraging men to incorporate a wellness and preventive approach to their healthcare regime.
According to MHN, a higher percentage of men have no healthcare coverage and men make half as many healthcare visits for prevention as women.
Dr. Christian Kollar, President of the MCA says in addition to taking an active role in their health, "Men need to focus on three key areas, managing stress, increasing daily activity and of course diet." He also explains "how a person handles stress can impact their overall health a wellness and that adding a 30 minute walk each day with a target of making 10,000 steps each day is a good and generally safe way to get active." He also adds, "Eating more whole foods and drinking more water will help give the body more of what it needs remain strong."
