“My thyroid level was really high and 9Health Fair tried, but couldn’t reach me by phone. So, through their follow up process, 9Health Fair expedited my results to my house and included a cover letter saying that I had to seek immediate medical attention. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated their persistence in tracking me down.”

"My husband and I attended the 9Health Fair in April of 2004 at the Susan M Duncan YMCA in Arvada. We had gone through most of the stations and were on our way out when we saw the line for skin screenings. It was shorter than usual so we decided to stop and get checked. Thank GOD we did. I was checked by the doctor who noticed a dark freckle on my left arm and a spot on my face; she recommended that both areas be checked by my doctor. I had the freckle on my arm removed and sent off to the lab. It was melanoma! It was .3mm deep so it was caught early. I will have to manage this for the rest of my life but now that I am educated, it will help me through any future incidents. While my doctor had a watch on this freckle, it was the 9Healthfair that recommended further inspection and treatment and may have saved my life. I will always be thankful to the 9Health Fair.”

July 2014:  Hydration Station

 (Graphic loading...)
 

You may be surprised to learn that adequate hydration for an average healthy adult living in a mild climate is nine 8-ounce cups for women and thirteen cups for men.  Mayo Clinic reminds us that the popular eight 8-ounce cups of water per day really should be reworded to “drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid per day.”  It does not all have to come from water however.  All fluids count towards your daily amount.  For instance, we tend to eat twenty percent of our water intake.  Fruits and vegetables such as grapefruit, bell peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes are all over 90% water and excellent sources of needed fluids, not to mention valuable nutrients.
