This ‘Handy’ Cough Medication Might Save You $400 to $28,000

More people get asthma as adults than 'grow out' of asthma they had as kids. Many people who had asthma as a kid assume they grew out of it. But you know those bouts of bronchitis you get every year or so, the ones the urgent care doctor gives you antibiotics for and the antibiotics don’t always work very well? You get those because you don’t really grow out of asthma—not entirely. And that means when you get a cold or a sinus infection, or when your allergies get really bad, it can stir up enough inflammation that it triggers…

Are eggs healthy or not?

There's never been any credible evidence to support the idea that eating eggs is generally unhealthy. In fact, some evidence supports the opposite; that egg-eaters have lower cholesterol than non egg-eaters. I myself was surprised that it had been studied at all, because the results were not widely reported.

Low Carb Diets Reduce Blood Pressure

A new study suggests Dr. Atkins was right: A high carb diet is not a healthy diet, and cutting carbs trims more than just your waistline. While both low-carb and low-fat diets can help you loose weight, Duke University's well-designed study makes it pretty clear that if you want to reduce your weight and your pressure, a low-carb diet is a better choice. From Today's Medscape Family Medicine: "January 25, 2010 (Durham, North Carolina) — A new randomized trial comparing a low-carbohydrate diet with a low-fat diet in combination with the weight-loss drug orlistat has found that both strategies produced meaningful weight…

Tiger Woods’ Concussion: What kind of recovery can he expect?

Tiger Woods recently had a single car accident--a nasty one. Reports say he was out for as long as six minutes when his wife found him. When a doctor hears that a patient has suffered a brain injury severe enough to alter consciousness, they get concerned. Loosing consciousness altogether suggests a significant insult to the brain. With an injury like that, I would tell a patient to expect between six weeks and six months of after effects, including headaches, irritability, and concentration deficits. This can be frightening and frustrating for both patient and the people they live and work with.…

Is Coffee Bad For Your Health?

Coffee: Friend or Foe? Coffee is one of the most popular breakfast items on the most popular diet (a Paleo Diet) menu. Indeed, I've read reports claiming that coffee has antioxidants that may prevent heart disease, and other compounds that may help to prevent certain cancers. At the other end of the argument, many natural health newsletters treat coffee like it's worse than cocaine--blaming coffee for everything from "burning out" our adrenal glands and harming our kidneys, to mood swings, fatigue, and depression. So is starting you day with coffee really going to make you "Bulletproof"? Moderation is the key. …

What do all the healthiest diets have in common?

French Paradox, Mediterranean Diet, Okinawa Diet...Oh my! How do you chose? You don't have to choose, you can enjoy them all. All authentic cuisines the world over include foods that belong to these four categories: Meat on the Bone Organ meats Fermented and sprouted foods Fresh, uncooked ingredients While most of my patients are aware of the importance of fresh foods, few people realize that we also need to include foods from the other three pillars. Here's what you need to know about each: Meat on the Bone Cooking meat bone does two great things. 1) It enables the bone…

Nutraceuticals

Supplement companies want you to belive the antioxidants, flavinoids, and other compounds they provide can only come from their pills. Nonsense.
