What your sweat says about you!

What your sweat says about you!

  I recently passed a mixed martial arts (MMA) test for advanced green belt (the next level is brown belt!) and to say I was sweaty afterwards is a huge understatement.  I was telling all of my fellow MMA students after the test how my nickname in my prior 19 years of karate used to be “Sweaty Betty” and they got a big kick out of that!    All kidding aside, whether we like it or...

Trouble sleeping?  Don’t do this!

Trouble sleeping? Don’t do this!

  Back in the early 70s when I was a kid there was a song by the 5th Dimension called “(Last night) I didn’t get to sleep at all,” sung beautifully by the immensely talented Marilyn McCoo.  While the idea behind the song is her inability to sleep because her love interest was on her mind, one line of the song that is particularly intriguing is the one where she sings, “The sleeping pill I...

If you have a decent diet, do you need a multi-vitamin?

Don’t be hoodwinked by this trick

Don’t be hoodwinked by this trick

  There is a dangerous trend that is exploding before our very eyes and the problem with that is so many people are caught up in it that they don’t even realize they are being hoodwinked.  I’m talking about fear-based medicine.  Over the last several decades we’ve seen the marketing of pharmaceutical products go from merely a recommendation or an option to YOU MUST DO THIS OR YOU WILL DIE!  Yet when you take a...

This had better change…or we’re doomed

This had better change…or we’re doomed

  You have probably heard of the Hippocratic Oath that many doctors recite upon completion of medical school.  It encapsulates the standards and principles of medical care since the time of the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates.     But you’ve likely never seen the actual text of the oath!  Note that it has been updated from its original form, so here are some excerpts from a more current version: I swear to fulfill, to the best...
