Healthy skin has been equated with a healthy diet leading to the "inside out" approach to skin health. Since the skin is the barrier to the external world, healthy skin should lead to overall better health. Conversely, the skin derives its nutrition from the internal body requiring the consumption of nutritional supplements for optimal health. This research attempts to examine skin attributes and improved appearance achieved after consumption of a state-of-the-art dietary su...

The goal of this randomized controlled trial is to tailor a health communication intervention to improve functionally health illiterate (FHI) patients' management of their hypertension and to evaluate the impact of this intervention on health outcomes. The investigators expect the intervention will improve FHI patients' management of their hypertension and the study will demonstrate an effective and cost-efficient method for clearly conveying health information to FHI adults.

The National Health Service (NHS) Health Check is a significant part of the strategy to tackle premature mortality and promote healthy lifestyles. Public Health England aspires to an uptake rate of 75% but national uptake is less than 50%. This study aims to assess the impact of two new behaviourally informed NHS Health Check leaflets on the uptake of NHS Health Checks, by randomizing patients in Lewisham and North East Lincolnshire to the different leaflets and comparing patie...
The aim of this study is to evaluate a one year intervention with physical activity on prescription (PAP) treatment for patients in a primary health care center setting versus an enhanced PAP-support with physiotherapist regarding physical activity (PA) level, metabolic health effects and health-related quality of life. One hundred ninety patients, 27-85 years, physically inactive, having at least one component of the metabolic syndrome and not responding with increased PA lev...

Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) have been epidemiologically linked to serious health problems including heart disease, liver disease, and diabetes. This study will recruit frequent SSB drinkers who are employees at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and measure markers of metabolic health on two occasions, 10 months apart. During this time, UCSF will cease selling SSBs at all campus and medical center locations. Additionally, at the first assessment half of par...

An accumulating body of research indicates that activities such as exercise, active cognitive and social engagement, good sleep hygiene, stress reduction and proper nutrition are associated with the maintenance of cognitive health. Emerging data also suggests that healthy lifestyle behaviors may promote brain plasticity. Despite nationwide efforts to raise public awareness about brain health, there remains a gap concerning how to best promote behavioral change and help at-risk ...

Background: In women with hormone receptor positive (HR+) breast cancer, adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) is associated with a significant survival advantage. Nonadherence is a particular challenge in older women, even though they stand to benefit the most from AET. Therefore, a novel e-health tool (OPTIMUM) that integrates real-time analysis of health administrative claims data was developed to provide point-of-care decision support for clinicians.
This study also aims to raise awareness among both patients and health-care providers about the importance of pre-travel health consultation and preventive interventions prior to international travel. Through appropriate health counseling, cancer patients will have less risk of having travel -related health complications and thus have a better quality of life and overall improved sense of wellbeing.
