“Type 2 Diabetes accounts for 90 percent of all cases and has reached almost epidemic status. Luckily, the disease can be controlled and managed by making a few healthy lifestyle choices,” said Rich Hiner, president of International Hot Tub. “This November, in recognition of American Diabetes Month, it’s important to raise awareness by sharing information on how the right choices can prevent diabetes-related complications and make living with Diabetes easier,” continued Hiner.
Exercise and Diet - The majority of Americans age 45 or older are carrying a few extra pounds and living an inactive lifestyle. Weight gain that is allowed to get worse over the years can lead to obesity which is a leading cause of Diabetes. In fact, new cases are being diagnosed at record levels. And while the disease is incurable, it can be managed, even prevented in some cases, by pursuing a well-balanced diet and engaging in moderate exercise at least three times as week. Eating food high in fiber and low in fat makes it easier for the body to regulate sugar levels: the key to effective management of the disease.
Avoiding Smoking - The negative health risks of smoking are well known and hardly anyone would argue differently in light of current medical information. But using nicotine increases the risk of getting diabetes three times over that of a non-smoker and significantly increases the chance of complications for those who already have Diabetes. In addition to elevated blood cholesterol, obesity and stress, smoking is a lifestyle choice that can be eliminated, thereby reducing risks. Smoking with Diabetes negatively impacts the lungs, heart and skin, and can lead to heart disease, eye disease, stroke, nerve damage and more.
Hot Tub Therapy for Stress Relief - Elevated stress levels have been shown to increase the risk of developing diabetes. Taking positive steps to reduce stress by using a hot tub a few nights a week will not only improve health, but also, eliminate aches and pains, even promote sleep. For those who already have Diabetes, a twenty minute soak a few nights a week may even lower blood sugar levels over time. Hot tub therapy increases blood flow which helps the body more efficiently use and deliver insulin.
“In an effort to help educate the public on how hot tubs and hot water hydrotherapy can help improve health and well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 4 locations during the entire month,” said Jill Seng, marketing manager. “We want consumers to feel the benefits of a relaxing soak in a Hot Spring hot tub for themselves.”
“Since we expect a huge response to this offer, we encourage people to schedule their free 30-minute soak with us ahead of time by calling 303-296-7727 to reserve their time,” continued Seng. “That way we can have everything ready for a relaxed, private, no-pressure hot tub experience.”
