Meet Ken!

It’s story time again. While I enjoy writing educational blogs, my passion lives with patient ‘stories’. In the medical world, we call these ‘case studies’, but to me, it’s so sterile sounding. These are real people….parents, siblings, children- unique individuals […]


Step It Up, Mama!

Earlier this month, researchers published the results of a study designed to understand if adults with children are healthier than adults without children. Before I get into the details, ask yourself….were you healthier before you had children? I commonly hear […]

Food Addiction is Proven

Last week the LA Times featured an article that caught my eye. It wasn’t a feature story by any means, but it jumped right off the page at me (or computer screen in my case). The article was titled, “If […]

Is Your Child Doomed for Diabetes?

Debating the Need for a Health Conscious Doctor

On Jan 9, 2011, Erin commented on Unhealthy Doctors Don’t Make the Grade “Should patients expect their doctors to be living examples of their life’s work? ” I lose respect for people who are obviously lazy about their health, but […]

Navigating “The Holidays” Healthfully

Oh yes…it’s that time of year!  A traditional time of overindulgence that begins with Thanksgiving and continues through to the New Year.  Maybe it starts with not making the time to fit in exercise.  Maybe it starts with that first […]

Seniors Curing Disease Without Medication

Story time!  I had another amazing experience at the office today.  A 77 year old woman came to us just a few months ago with arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux and prediabetes- not to mention her obesity. […]

The Great American Cookie Debate

I was reading an article in the New York Times November 28, 2010 edition tonight and found a catchy title that obviously had me at ‘Junking.’  The title, “Junking Junk Food” did not prepare me, however, for the subject matter-  […]

Are You an Everyday Addict?

Addiction is a word that conjures up many images- usually of the heroin addict, the alcoholic or the chain smoker.  But have you ever thought about whether or not you might have an addiction to something less melodramatic?  Did you […]

The Value of Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners

I opened the doors to my practice years ago as a solo family practice doctor.  When I say ‘solo,’ I mean ‘solo.’  I was the check-in receptionist, the medical assistant, the physician, the check-out receptionist, the office manager and the […]

The Social Price of Becoming Healthy

We care for a patient who suffered from panic attacks, social anxiety, tremor, weakness, pain, headaches, muscle pains and the list goes on.  She had made countless attempts to correct these symptoms by a variety of ‘natural’ methods before coming […]

Continuing on our series covering the case for Going Organic, we find ourselves at the dreaded ‘ETHICS’ discussion.  For those following along, we’re on our fourth blog dedicated to this topic.  If you’ve missed the previous, you might want to […]

You Gotta Fight For Your Right

A well-informed mother brought her 18 month old daughter in for a routine well check.  Her daughter was diagnosed with a dairy allergy as a young infant and she was working hard to reduce/eliminate dairy from her daughter’s diet.  Surprisingly, […]

Medicine to Move You

Integrative Medicine, Alternative Medicine, Natural Medicine, Holistic Medicine- many people are confused about the differences between these words but people are not confused about what they want from their doctor in concept.  Integrative Medicine combines the knowledge of Western medicine […]
