We all know that cancer is one of the leading causes of death and destruction on the planet. I suspect if I told you I had a pill that, taken daily, would reduce your chance of dying from cancer by half, most of you would sell your ugly sister to the gypsies to get the money to buy it. Needless to say, I don’t have such a pill (I would be lounging on the beach of my private island if I did), but I can tell you four things that you can do that will accomplish the same outcome.

#2 Don’t drink at all, or at least in moderation, alcohol that is. For you mincers of words, let me define moderation. That’s 1 drink of the grape a day for women and 2 for men. I realize that for many moderation means just short of passing out, but these are the same people who run naked onto ballfields.

Moderate intake has been associated with a slight decrease in cancer deaths, probably due to the antioxidants (resveratrol and proanthocyanidins) that populate the Merlots and Cabernets, but realistically you can get the same impact from eating grapes. Live like the old Greek philosophers, nothing in excess, everything in moderation.

Okay, I think we can all agree that period cramps are about as fun as the shingles in July, so I will dispense with all the statistics about how common they are blah, blah, blah. And, of course, being a male-type person, I have never myself experienced the joy of femalehood; however, I have walked through this demon-infested experience with countless women over the past thirty years, so I think I have earned the right to try to help alleviate this burden.

In fact, next to trashing a Kardashian, nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a way to get relief for a patient. There are a number of therapeutic options, but I want to focus this post on three “natural” remedies that have been proven to help.

#3 I know it’s not an herb or mineral but exercise has shown to reduce menstrual cramps in many studies. I realize that exercising on your period is about as fun as a Pamela Anderson film festival, but it really does help.

And it doesn’t have to be training for a marathon, a simple brisk walk for 30-45 minutes can keep your baby bag blissful. You’ve all probably heard of the runner’s high, that endorphin rush you get when you exercise like a maniac.

Well, the same chemicals responsible for this are released at a lower volume with even moderate exercise, and these little buggers have the painkilling ability of morphine! I am not suggesting you spin on an exercise bike for anesthesia during a root canal, but it can definitely help the girl flu.

We are all going to die. How’s that for a positive start to things! But, in spite of some wacko millionaire freezing himself for a couple of hundred years, most sane people will die. That doesn’t mean we have to die today or tomorrow. Again, most sane people would like to live well as long as possible.

We all know that cancer is one of the leading causes of death and destruction on the planet. I suspect if I told you I had a pill that, taken daily, would reduce your chance of dying from cancer by half, most of you would sell your ugly sister to the gypsies to get the money to buy it.

Needless to say, I don’t have such a pill (I would be lounging on the beach of my private island if I did), but I can tell you four things that you can do that will accomplish the same outcome.

#1 Don’t smoke… anything. Do I really need to harp on this? I can’t believe there are still folks who don’t know that smoking increases your risk of everything from lung cancer to terminal halitosis. Cigarette manufacturers ought to have to go to work every day dressed as the Grim Reaper because their product is as poisonous as a viper’s venom. Do whatever you need to do to stop, hypnosis, medicines, counseling, wiring your mouth shut. Just do it…now…no excuses.

Okay, I think we can all agree that period cramps are about as fun as the shingles in July, so I will dispense with all the statistics about how common they are blah, blah, blah. And, of course, being a male-type person, I have never myself experienced the joy of femalehood; however, I have walked through this demon-infested experience with countless women over the past thirty years, so I think I have earned the right to try to help alleviate this burden.

In fact, next to trashing a Kardashian, nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a way to get relief for a patient. There are a number of therapeutic options, but I want to focus this post on three “natural” remedies that have been proven to help.

#2 Magnesium is kind of like the guy in your office that everyone knows, but no one knows exactly what he does. This mineral is a wonderful muscle relaxer and has been used for years for muscle cramps and GI issues.

The uterus is a big muscle, so it only follows that when that bad girl cramps down, which she does on a regular basis during your period, that relieving that would have a beneficial effect…and it does. Be careful however because too much of a good thing might make Sally a sad girl. Excess magnesium can cause diarrhea and may put a damper on a hot date.

I recommend 300-400 mg daily about 2-3 days before and during your cycle for relief. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion and your medical history may dictate otherwise. Oh, and if you poop every hour on that dose, I recommend decreasing it.

It's National Drink Wine Day!

Drinking red wine lowers cholesterol 9-12% and protects your heart - The antioxidants in red wine keep your blood vessels flexible and reduce the risk of clotting. Red wine also helps control your blood sugar for when you're eating that Valentine's chocolate.

Just remember not to go overboard. Drink slow and savor the day! (The recommended alcohol intake is no more than one drink a day for women and two for men, and only for people who don't have health problems that would make it unsafe.)

#1 As far as supplements go, the par excellence is omega 3 fatty acids. These anti-inflammatory wonders have been tested in everything from arthritis to menstrual cramps and have proven their pain-relieving chops.

The key is taking adequate amounts and of adequate quality. Let’s face it, there is a lot of garbage being sold as omega 3 fatty acid supplements including fish oils and borage seed oils, but many either contain little if any of the active ingredients or have so many other impurities it renders them useless.

My pick for quality and purity is the brand Omega XL. I have some personal experience with this product and can vouch for its effectiveness. For menstrual cramps, I suggest a daily dose, but then pump it up about a week before the period.

Blue Apron: Fresh Ingredients, Original Recipes, Delivered to You

Have anyone tried Meal subscription services?

Many of you know that my wife and I are empty-nesters, a joyous condition many of you also enjoy, but it has proven somewhat of a dilemma as far as dinner meals.

Neither of us are particularly good cooks, or should I say are particularly good at doing what it takes to be a good cook, and we both know the perils of eating out a lot, so our solution was to try those meal preparation services that deliver ingredients and leave the execution to yo. This solved three problems for us.

First it gave us just the right ingredients to not waste anything and suddenly find you have no kale to make the dish. Second, it kept us from the nutritional black hole of Mexican restaurants, and third, it was reasonably priced. We started 2 years ago and haven’t looked back.

Currently, we are using Blue Apron and Home Chef. Blue Apron has a bit more complicated recipes, but still comprehensible by most third graders and Home Chef has a ridiculous variety of options to choose from each week. Well worth a try.

Here’s a summary of what I try to do in its most basic description:
Eat balanced, low saturated fat, low sugar, high fiber, mostly plants, as close to their origin as possible, and nothing containing the phrase high fructose corn syrup!

Want to check them out? Just visit http://www.blueapron.com & https://www.homechef.com

Blue Apron makes cooking fun and easy. We'll provide you with all the ingredients that you need to make a delicious meal in exactly the right proportions.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.

The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.

Make a difference in your community: Spread the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encourage people to live heart healthy lives.

A whopping 74% of adults over 20 are either overweight or obese. Excess weight is a precursor for a variety of problems including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver and senile dementia. Obesity is the new smoking when it comes to public health issues. The successful anti smoking campaigns of the 70s and 80s reduced this form of slow suicide fairly successfully, and there was a corresponding drop in deaths due to cardiovascular disease. However, with the rise of obesity and weight issues, the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes also increased, to the point of offsetting deaths from cancers and other maladies.

I have learned a great deal from a great number of people in the last few years, often by what they say, do, or think. Almost all of the books I have read, podcasts I have listened to and cool places I have traveled have come from other’s recommendations, examples or writings. Many times the initiator has no idea they influenced me or impacted my life, and that adds a bit of authenticity to their actions.

Every day I get questions about what I do, what I eat, what I think about a certain topic, not because I am a savant or authority, but because folks are genuinely interested or curious. As a textbook introvert, I have to admit I am a bit leery of getting very personal when it comes to what I do and think outside of my professional duties, but I have developed a pestering sense of paying it forward, so I wanted to put together a semi comprehensive list of stuff before the end of the year. My singular desire is to provide just a sliver of value that may improve your day by 1%. If I can spark an interest, motivate an action, or trigger a desire, I will have met my own expectations.

Here is my list!

There is a point where all good fantasies need to be put to rest. For example, Bigfoot doesn’t exist; politicians aren’t honest; Justin Bieber isn’t very bright, and vaccines are bad. I don’t care much about most of those, but the poor misguided fools who still support the idea that vaccinating your kids is a bad thing need to get a dose of reality medicine.

I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I reached my highest weight ever in September of last year and was completely disgusted and unhappy with myself. I decided then that I was going to make a change and promised myself I would actually stick to it this time. In the first month I lost 20 lbs like it was nothing, on my own! I was so excited! Then I met Dr. Eaker, and learned about his weight loss program. I was so hesitant at first, but decided to give it a try. I started mid October. From then until now with the help of Dr. Eaker and his wonderful team I have lost an additional 70 lbs!!! 🤗🤗🤗 that's a total of 91 lbs lost since September! I couldn't be more excited. This journey has thought me so many things, not just about losing weight, but about myself, and how to enjoy life again. I'm thrilled to see what the future holds and how this journey will turn out for me!!
To anyone considering this program....today was my 10 weeks on plan.this was the very first week ihave lost any weight. very stressful week.with the support of Melinda and DR.EAKER I left with my head held high!nothing but encouragement from both! plus they reminded me of how far I have come! twenty nine pounds gone !! with this kind of support how can we go wrong? DR.EAKER said tomorrow is a new day! BLESS THIS MAN!
