The drug inhibits the formation of blood vessels in and around the tumors, which leads to cells shrinkage and death. The drug starves the tumor cells of nutrients and oxygen, resulting in cell death. Side effects of nintedanib are decreased appetite, weight loss, nausea, headache and stomachache.

DuPage Health and Wellness Center of Glen Ellyn, IL is Proud to Announce its New Lifestyle Improvement Program, 30 Days to Health

Glen Ellyn, IL (PRWEB) June 02, 2014

DuPage Health and Wellness Center of Glen Ellyn, IL is now enrolling participants for its new wellness program, 30 Days to Health, which custom-tailors a healthy lifestyle for each individual patient based on his or her own specific needs. Clinic owner Jim Flaherty stresses that this is NOT a dietrather, it is a lifestyle program geared towards improving health and quality of life. Unfortunately, due to unhealthy habits, many Americans are not in control of their own health and dont know what to do about it. If you think wellness is expensive, try illness, Flaherty quips.

The 30 Days to Health program involves undergoing regular chiropractic adjustments, maintaining proper nutrition, working with DuPage Health and Wellnesss experts to attain fitness goals, and taking time for relaxation techniques such as regular massages.

Each participants experience with the program is based on his or her own Wellness Score, which can range from A to F. A clients Wellness Score is based on a variety of bio-markers, such as body mass index, cellular health, core strength and flexibility, posture, and neurospinal function indexto mention just a few. The healthcare professionals at DuPage Health and Wellness take all these factors into account, assign each patient a grade, and design a personalized wellness program to address any problems or potential issues. We start first by designing a nutrition program that helps the patient feel better and then work on core strength and better long-term habits, explains Jim Flaherty.

Results can obviously vary depending on each clients initial starting point and his or her own needs. However, the program is designed to educate every patient and to develop new health and wellness-oriented habits that will bring benefits for years to come. Individuals who have tried the program already have glowing praise for it. Says one participant, I and two other people have done the program because we wanted to make sure it would result in positive changes. I lost 18 pounds and 4 inches in my waist during the 30-day program. What I learned has allowed me to maintain a much healthier lifestyle.
