What You Put in Your Body Affects Your Health Greatly

I have always been one of those people who could eat whatever they wanted and never gain weight, and due to that fact, I never used to put much thought into what I ate. When I started experiencing health problems, my doctor ordered some tests and found that I was experiencing anemia due to an iron-deficient diet. I am grateful I had this "wake up call" before I continued to eat a bad diet for the rest of my life, because I soon also realized my diet was lacking vitamins and minerals. I changed my eating habits and began to feel much better. I began juicing to take advantage of all of the vitamins and minerals in healthy, fresh juice. I have learned a lot about health during my commitment to leading a healthier lifestyle, so I decided to start a blog to share my health advice with the world!

Getting The Help You Need Before And After Brain Tumor Removal

If you've learned that you have a brain tumor that needs to be surgically removed, it's understandable if you're feeling anxious. The stress of the pending surgery and aftercare, as well as any physical symptoms you're currently experiencing due to the presence of a tumor might feel overwhelming and leave you exhausted. If you know that you have a tumor and you're preparing to have it removed, it might be a good time to look into in-home care.

Problems Prior to Surgery

It's fairly common for people with brain tumors to have debilitating symptoms prior to their removal. Tumors tend to press on the fragile tissues of the brain, affecting the circulation or overstimulating areas by constantly applying pressure to them.

While the symptoms of a brain tumor can vary wildly depending on the location and size of the tumor, it's not uncommon for patients with brain tumors to experience pain, major headaches, seizures, or even loss of consciousness. In addition to the stress you may be personally experiencing, any of these symptoms may make it difficult or dangerous to live your life without assistance.

In-home care assistants can help to take care of you during this trying time. They're not simply limited to basic medical needs; most in-home care providers can also perform basic chores and run errands for you, as well. This can be helpful to make sure that you're well taken care of and that your health doesn't decline from missing medications or skipping meals because you're not feeling well.

Prepping For Post-Surgery

Although you'll be in the hospital for a while following your surgery, an in-home care assistant can help you to prep for coming home ahead of time. They can make sure your home is clean and stocked with necessary toiletries and food. They may also be able to install support bars to help you avoid falling while your body is recovering from the trauma of surgery.

At Home Recovery

Your in-home care assistant will also be there once you're released from the hospital to take you home and to help you through the recovery process. You can rely on a care assistant to take you to medical checkups, help you to cook, help with showering, or do whatever else you need. Allowing an assistant to help you can make your life a little simpler and keep you from getting stressed out or injured.

It can be nerve-wracking to know that you have a brain tumor, but taking steps to make sure that your days are as easy as they can be before and after your surgery is a great step to take. Having supportive in home care while you're ill and recovering may help to take some of the burden off your mind.
