The challenge is to take care of yourself

Before 11 December, 2016 Ana María López de Mesa

Healthy practices and preventative checkups are both important aspects of caring for your health. 

At Coomeva Private Healthcare we care about your health, disease prevention and we encourage you and your family to pursue healthy habits. This is why we constantly invite you to be watchful of your weight, make preventative and follow-up appointments and incorporate the following three important aspects for taking care of your health for life:

Healthy eating:

  • Include 5 servings of fruits
    and vegetables in your daily diet.

Be more active

  • Do at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day.

Be smoke-free

  • Stay clear of it: avoid smoking and exposing yourself to cigarette smoke.

The heart is the motor that keeps our body moving. This organ is negatively affected when we engage in risky behaviors such as eating unhealthy foods, smoking, being exposed to second-hand smoke and physical inactivity. These tend to lead to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol and/or triglycerides in the blood).

We want to motivate you to take a more active role in caring for yourself and we would like to make this easy for you through our webpage. Here, you can get advice to keep your health in check, find healthy recipes, receive tips on regular physical activity and educate yourself about how bad habits can damage organs and vital bodily functions.

Along with adhering to suggested medical treatment and keeping regular checkups with your provider, the information available on this webpage can help you to prevent and control various diseases.

If you are a member of one of our healthcare programs, we invite you to register at so that you can benefit from the information we have for you. In addition to being up to date on the activities that we offer, you can also join our “Más Activo” program that rewards you for practicing healthy habits
