Supercharge Your Love Life With Common Foods

One of the most common complaints I hear from many of my over-45 age patients is that their love-battery seems to be permanently low and they just can’t seem to re-charge it.

Adult ADHD: How To Handle It

Sometimes I’ll see a patient who comes in complaining of having feelings like their mind is racing, they’re forgetful, distracted, have difficulty concentrating, lose patience with their jobs, or other projects. It may even occur to the point that they impulsively quit, are frequently disorganized and misplace things. These patients tell me they’ve always felt […]

Belly Fat Increases The Risk For Osteoporosis

One of the most frequent health complaints I hear from many of my patients, male and female, is that they seem to have a disproportionate amount of ugly belly fat that they just can’t seem to get rid of. As their doctor, I sympathize with their plight to want to look more attractive but more […]

Winter Fun Can Bring Dangerous Head Injuries

At this holiday time of the year, many of my patients can’t wait to head for the snow-covered mountain resorts for a winter vacation full of sports fun like snowboarding, skiing, snowmobiling and/or sledding. Although I don’t like to put a damper on my patients enthusiasm for winter sports, I do like to caution them, […]

Diet Resolutions For 2011: Keep Them Realistic!

Well, it’s that holiday time of year again when all the parties start rockin’ and rollin’ and, like most of my patients, you’ll likely eat and drink too much by the time New Years Day rolls around. That’s usually the day when my patients, and many people, try to “start over” and ring in a […]
