a foundation for health by creating a culture of wellness and prevention
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 18, 2009
Cenegenics® Medical Institute, global age management medicine leader, unveiled details of their upcoming Nutrition & Exercise Online Personal Tracker, the product of a two-month pilot study. The new iPhone/Blackberry-compliant system tracks nutrition and exercise behaviors, in sync with the "call to action" voiced in the latest America's Health Rankings™.
Per that report, the solution to America's poor health performance lies in our building "a foundation for health by creating a culture of wellness and prevention," particularly since our habits, practices and everyday activities affect us individually as well as our community.
The new Cenegenics Nutrition & Exercise Online Personal Tracker helps patients stay on target with their customized Cenegenics program, thanks to direct interaction with their Cenegenics nutrition/exercise counselors. Cenegenics says the tracker is one more step in their mission to change the paradigm of medicine, transitioning from a disease-oriented system to a proactive, preventive one. Unlike the "anti-aging" movement, Cenegenics recognizes aging as a natural process that can be managed with customized programs focused on the synergy of low-glycemic nutrition, exercise, nutraceuticals and hormone optimization (as clinically indicated) to maximize health and prevent or delay age-related disease.
"Cenegenics patients will spend approximately four to seven minutes each day logging their nutritional and exercise activities online via the tracker. This new system will help us monitor patient habits and progress as well as immediately identify red flag areas needing improvement and negative behavioral issues, " said Cicely Valenti, Director of Nutrition & Exercise at Cenegenics Las Vegas.
With the innovative Nutrition & Exercise Online Personal Tracker, the Cenegenics team can give patients relevant educational materials, present recommendations, send email alerts and offer a variety of tools to help them meet program goals:
- Grocery list planning
- Recipe and food recommendations, amount and number of times daily
- Complete database of restaurants nationwide, along with what menu items are compliant with their customized Cenegenics program
- Customized meal tracking/planning
- Recommended water intake/ beverages
- Exercise regimens/demonstrations
- Suggested modifications to workout programs
- Personal exercise program report, including frequency, intensity and duration
- Complete tracking, including weight, circumference measurements, blood pressure and resting heart rate
- Nutraceutical dosing/supplement information and reminders
- Sleep tracking
"The tracker creates an excellent opportunity for physicians and nutrition/exercise counselors to interact with our patients via an ongoing basis, allowing for a variety of factors necessary for success. The ability to track these parameters enables us to make specific recommendations to maximize patient results," said Dr. Beth Traylor, Senior Cenegenics Institute physician and faculty member of the Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation.
The Nutrition & Exercise Online Personal Tracker will be beta tested at Cenegenics Las Vegas, then released to all Cenegenics centers and Cenegenics physician affiliate practices, expected by September 2009.
