Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

Bake Your Own Bread in an Hour!

I was given the recipe of all recipes to make super fast, easy bread, and I can’t wait to share it. This bread costs almost nothing, it’s fun to bake, and so much healthier than the store-bought bread spiked with high-fructose syrup.

Forget expensive bread machines: all you need is flour, rapid rise yeast, water, salt, olive oil, and voila — bread!

Don't Let A Doctor Destory Your Baby's Hearing

Do you think that this is a sensational title?  It is posted this morning on CNN.com/Health.  I'm really curious to hear what you think because the story is about our family.  Will this encourage patient advocacy or will it harm doctor/patient relationships?

What 8 Features of Your Face Tells About You

Author Jean Haner married into a Chinese family and her mother-in-law taught her everything she knew about the ancient art of face reading. After Jean realized that her mother-in-law was not just judging people but was, in fact, correct in her opinion of them, she continued her studies with notable teachers in the ancient Chinese principles of face reading. The ancient Chinese believe that your face reflects who you are, why you think, feel and behave…

Workout Gear to Fancy this Spring

Finally, days are getting longer and, though I hate the feeling of losing an hour, Daylight Savings time (March 13) means that there will be light when working out in the wee hours of the morning. Just enough to make those early bird workouts somewhat less painful. So, if like me, you are looking forward to hitting the pavement instead of the treadmill, we thought that you would enjoy these particular finds:…

The Fitbug - Motivation in my Pocket



I do enjoy my workouts… the second they are over. Granted, there is a definite sense of pride and “I did good for my body today” feeling that follows a good workout. But somehow, that sense of achievement holds no reserve to motivate me for any subsequent workout. I’m on my own. Left to my own device, I would probably never exercise. And really, I only workout because I have to. I wish that I were one of those that could get lost in the endorphin…

Love Your Heart

Love Your Heart. Boss Mom on Heart Disease.
What is the number one killer of women? You may be surprised to know that it's not cancer but heart disease. The American Heart Association estimates that nearly 500,000 women die of heart disease each year. Frankly, I never gave much thought to this disease until my dearly beloved mother-in-law died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack last month.…

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CURE FOR ALLERGIES?

I'm so excited.  My son is allergic to so many things and we've been through the wringer with him but he's doing so well.  So, I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey to share what we did that helped him so that other families can be helped also.  I never imagined that writing the book would lead to radio interviews and interacting with so many wonderful people with such a wealth of knowledge.  Here is a…

4 Things I Learned From Being a Sex Columnist

By Marjie Killeen, Guest Contributor

Although my 17 year-old son calls me a “Sexpert”, I’m definitely not one. I have no special sex training or credentials. But, during the last year of writing my column, “Sex & the Suburbs ” for MakeItBetter.net, I’ve interviewed many people…

Do You Think You Have a Preset Time to Live? And . . . Who's the Nut When it Comes to Allergies?

Ready for this?  I don't think that it is a school's responsibility to be nut free.  I don't think airlines should be mandated to keep peanuts off a plane.  I don't think it should be mandatory for restaurants to provide nut-free options or for that matter, egg free, dairy free, soy free or anything else- to which all my son is allergic.  It's my issue and my responsibility.

 

It's certainly greatly appreciated and an act of goodwill when schools, airlines, restaurants and…

Would you sue a doctor you like, if he made a mistake?

Okay, so I encourage the importance of a partnership between doctors and patients.  I figure if we can talk to our doctors, he'll know better what's going on with us and we'll better understand what he wants from us.  We'll also be able to work together if we have all kinds of other ideas we're thinking of trying that he may not suggest- like using olive oil for that dry scalp instead of a medicated shampoo.

 

But could this closeness hurt the doctor?  Go with me for a second.…

How do you calm a panicked kid?

Okay, this has to be one of the most important skills parents have up their sleeve.  I have a child with asthma.  In my case it's vital.  If a kid panics, things just escalate out of control.  So, any tricks we teach our children to stay calm can be life saving.  You can read all about that in my book Little Patient Big Doctor.

 

Even if you are not dealing with asthma but have a child who is stuck on top of…

Light Therapy - The "Prozac" to Winter Blues

My family was in for a major shock when we moved away from 16 years of living in the sunny Southwest to the Midwest with its grey winters.  People were warning us that winters would be hard. Yeah, right. I was born in Montreal, I remember winters. Pfffft.

As we were visiting Chicago area homes in planning for our move, we scoffed at the particular homeowners that featured a closet with a standing tanning booth in it. “You’ll need this in the winter” they said. Yeah, right.…

Winds of Change



I feel that when I came to this realization, it brought me mental wellness, it made me see life, my life, in a whole new light.

Recent interactions that lead me to writing this post

My girlfriend Wendy recently said to me, "V, I've got to wonder, how much more does God expect you to take? Is God waiting to see how much it will take to break you or trying to make you stronger?"

Fish Oild Versus Flax Seed

Fish Oil Versus Flax Seed Oil The health benefits of incorporating Omega-3 fatty acids into our diet is nothing new.  We have learned from other cultures that these fats are healthy.  Some of these cultures such as the Inuit in Greenland eat as much as 40% of their diets in fat.  However, these people have low rates of diabetes, heart disease and degenerative joint disease. The reason for this is their fatty diets are…
