As a trusted health and lifestyle expert, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe of Bravo’s MARRIED TO MEDICINE, lives by the motto that ‘Prevention is the Key to Healthy Living.’  This philosophy has garnered the respect of her peers, patients, and the public with her blend of passion-driven clinical knowledge and compassion. Dr. Contessa will explain her top keys for a healthy 2021, even with all the special challenges or quarantines, a pandemic and sheltering in place. For 2021, more than any year in recent history, it’s important to remind people to take a moment and access their overall physical and mental health.  The US Department of Health and Human Services points out that heart disease, breast cancer, osteoporosis, depression and autoimmune diseases are the top five health issues facing people.   Dr. Contessa will share tips during this special interview to remind people to take care of themselves.

SUPPORTING OUR HEALTH THIS WINTER
I tell my patients to get plenty of sleep, exercise, eat well and consider a quality supplement. One of my favorites is Kori Pure Antarctic Krill Oil. It’s a superior Omega-3 because it has excellent absorption compared to fish oil and no fishy aftertaste. It supports our immune, heart, brain, joint, eye and skin health. It’s also certified sustainable. Americans don’t eat enough fish, which means most of us are deficient in essential Omega-3 nutrients. Even more, krill oil is a doctor recommended Omega-3 source that has been clinically proven to raise Omega-3 levels.  Kori Krill Oil has some limited time offers running at CVS and Costco.

HEALTH ISSUES WE CAN EASILY PREVENT
While some may think sunscreen is synonymous with summer, sun protection is actually needed year-round. UVA and UVB rays come through the clouds and UVA rays also come through windows, so the skin still needs broad-spectrum protection, even if you’re inside. I love this Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen Sheer Tint from CeraVe. This 100% mineral sunscreen reflects harmful UVA and UVB rays, and is formulated with three essential ceramides, so it helps restore and protect the skin barrier, while locking in moisture for long-lasting hydration. The CereVe formula also features a universal tint that blends seamlessly into all skin tones, leaving skin with a healthy-looking glow, which is something we all crave in the winter months.

COMMON PREVENTABLE PROBLEM YOU SEE IN YOUR PRACTICE
Well, from the recent holidays to football Sundays, there have been plenty of opportunities to indulge in the foods we love, but oftentimes we pay the price with heartburn later. I recommend TUMS Naturals. They are free from artificial dyes and flavors and go to work in seconds to deliver fast and powerful heartburn relief, so you can enjoy the sweet, spicy and savory foods you love. They also come in tasty flavor combinations like Black Cherry & Watermelon and Coconut Pineapple. With so many things to worry about these days, heartburn shouldn’t be one of them.

PREVENTATIVE HEALTH CARE WE SHOULD ALL KNOW ABOUT
Maintaining good oral health is such an important part of your overall well-being, and that’s why I recommend Oral-B iO. With Oral-B iO, it’s now possible to get a professional clean feel at home, every day. The brush's unique features include A-I recognition technology, an interactive display and a Smart Pressure Sensor to help keep you from brushing too hard for a clean that wows.
