SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS - As I was looking out my bedroom window witnessing another beautiful start to a beautiful day, I began to think about the different things I WANTED TO DO TODAY! As I heard my little beagle (Tucker) snoring away, I thought about taking him for a walk on a trail in the local park. Although I […]
“LIVING THE EASY LIFE” - So many people are waiting for that magic day when responsibilities and stress associated with daily living end and are replaced with freedoms of choice and time to live a CHOSEN LIFESTYLE. Some call this RETIREMENT. Some call this BOREDOM! RETIREMENT sounds a whole lot better than BOREDOM, but approximately 55% of those who retire […]
GUEST POST: Before we blame our children’s choices, did our ACTIONS or INACTIONS influence them? - I have been given the honor to host a guest post from one of my recent followers and fellow bloggers, Marie Abanga. I appreciate Marie’s candor and the comments she leaves on my posts accompanied by some very personal examples, provoking positive reflections and reactions. Join me in welcoming Marie on my blog as she […]
DO YOU LIKE YOURSELF?… - The answer may seem obvious, UNTIL you create the two column list; one side PROVING you like yourself, the other side PROVING OTHERWISE. Each of us uses different parameters when determining whether we like or love ourselves. I’m going to provide some questions you can add to your own list to help you determine TRUTHFULLY […]
SEEING LIFE vs. SEEING LIFE - What contributes to one person’s view of life as dark, lonely or isolated and another person’s view of life as bright, boundless and full of undiscovered opportunities? PERCEPTION What draws the MIND in one direction or the other? Is it more natural to view life as existence with a simple goal of self preservation or […]
“I JUST DON’T HAVE TIME” - Harry Chapin wrote a song called, “Cats In The Cradle” in 1974. It described a father and son’s relationship  from birth to old age. The song revealed a precious void in their loving relationship called TIME. The one recurring theme across all socioeconomic groups, genders, races, and religions is the lack of time. This excuse […]
DO DOCTORS HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR? - With so much pain, anger, fear and adversarial controversy reported on a daily basis, I thought an attempt at humor might lighten up the hearts and minds of people (for at least the duration of time required to peek at this post.) Please keep in mind, I was a practicing physician educated by a system […]
BECOMING PART OF THE SOLUTION - I am so blessed. I have had a 57 year life span (so far) to: know what it feels like to be loved by TWO parents know what if feels like to be loved by TWO sisters know what it feels like to experience an outstanding education know what it feels like to have have […]
BALANCING LIFE - It doesn’t matter what your goals in life may be; the path toward HEALTHY achievement ALWAYS requires: BALANCE! We try to isolate our problem area(s) to focus and fix these individual concerns. They may TEMPORARILY show some improvement, but LIFE often gets “in the way” and the problems resurface once again. We find ourselves constantly […]
USING HOSTILITY POSITIVELY AND PRO-ACTIVELY - We can all agree releasing negative emotions in a positive manner is likely to create a better outcome then burying these emotions deep within ourselves. First, however, we must identify these negative emotions. I would like to create ONE for you whether or not you feel you have enough of your own. I’ll call it: […]
WHAT MAKES YOU MATTER? - I was taught the importance of an education as a young child. This education became more concentrated as I grew up and attended college. As a result, I developed a PASSION for HEALTH which became my primary focus in education. This culminated in a career as a physician. This title, “PHYSICIAN” created a cloak of […]
IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH (AND LIFE) BY HOLDING YOUR NOSE - What does holding your nose have to do with improving the health and quality of your life? It will simply hide  the “emotional distasteful SMELL” that prevents people from following new paths that provide desired outcomes. More and more people are walking in circles that limit the boundaries of their vision to see new effective […]
ARE YOU BORED WITH LIFE? - BEFORE PICTURE . The “CURE” to boredom isn’t LOOKING FOR YOU! YOU have to determine the path you’re following isn’t going to magically alter on its own. We all feel sorry for ourselves at some point in time. Self lamenting is part of human behavior and necessary TO A POINT. Once that point is exceeded, […]
“ACHIEVING JUST ENOUGH” - Based on the pace most of our lives seem to follow, I thought I’d share the concept, “ACHIEVING JUST ENOUGH” and its relationship to BALANCE, HAPPINESS and a LIFE WORTH LIVING. If one of our GOALS in life is to live a meaningful existence filled with purpose and driven by passion, what does it really […]
S.A.D. IS REALLY SAD - Many of us have seen the acronym S.A.D. As you’re reading this you probably have already thought about a phrase of words this acronym represents. What I’ll bet you didn’t realize is there are HUNDREDS of different phrases in health and other fields associated with S.A.D. Does you BRAIN take you down the path of […]
AN AFTERTHOUGHT - If just for a moment I asked you to be honest with YOURSELF, how would you respond (emotionally and rationally) to the following questions? How often do I think about my NEEDS vs. how often do I think about my WANTS? How often do I think about whether I LIKE or DISLIKE the person I’ve […]
CAN A DRILLING RIG AND HUMAN LIFE HAVE THAT MUCH IN COMMON? - I just saw the movie, “Deep Water Horizon.” It told a story about time restraints and short cuts corporate executives were willing to take to achieve a (financially) beneficial outcome. Without giving the movie away: A SAFETY PROTOCOL was established to prevent damage to the drilling rig. SHORT CUTS were taken to reduce costs and […]
HUMANS AREN’T THE ONLY ONES THAT DRAG ON GYM DAYS! - This is my beagle, TUCKER. He is my walking exercise partner 7 days/week. As you can tell by the picture, humans are not the only species that display evidence of lethargy when the “GYM” WORD is mentioned!
CHOOSING TO “LIVE LIFE” OR “EXIST IN LIFE” - If we didn’t already have enough decisions to make in life, here’s one more! Are the differences between these two lifestyles simply semantics or are they so different they are incongruous with each other? WHAT IS LIVING? Living involves willful choosing. It requires an individual to prioritize life and pursue that which he or she […]
THE EXPENDABLE CONSUMER - I frequently write about the importance of SELF VALUE. Some of us believe this concept is a “given.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. In this article, I’ll attempt to prove it! Parameters need to be established to define SELF VALUE. I will use the following: Involvement Challenge vs Acceptance Actions INVOLVEMENT: A person […]
FAILING YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS! - For so many of us, LIFE has taught us that FAILURE must be avoided AT ALL COST. Failure at work leads to demotions and firings;” failure in school leads to limited choices of colleges and careers, failure in relationships lead to “break ups,” separations and divorces. It appears that heart ache is the end result […]
LIFE AND DEATH - We all know the clinical meaning of death: “the permanent ending of vital processes in a cell or tissue.” What many of us don’t realize is that DEATH can also define a manner of LIVING. How many of us wake in the morning after a full night of sleep wishing we could remain within the […]
A LESSON LEARNED - As a physician, it had always been my job to TEACH and EDUCATE my patients about their health and the various requirements needed to restore and maintain it. I loved my job and took the responsibility associated with it very seriously. When I wasn’t with patients, I was commonly found researching various health topics. I […]
MY MENTOR: JACK LaLANNE - As I’ve written in the past, motivation comes from within, but inspiration can be found almost anywhere. Finding a mentor can help inspire a chosen lifestyle to navigate one’s path without having to “re-invent the wheel” at every turn. For me, that mentor was Jack LaLanne. As a little boy I would sit mesmerized to […]
A SATIRICAL EMAIL TO THE GOVERNMENT, HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY AND HEALTH INSURANCE INDUSTRY - TO: THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CC: THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY, THE HEALTH INSURANCE INDUSTRY . Dear Government, Health Insurance Industry and Pharmaceutical Industry, As a doctor with a PASSION for health, wellness and quality living, I would like to THANK ALL OF YOU for creating an untenable situation that will encourage more and more people to […]
STRIVING FOR CHANGE (BUT ONLY UNDER TERMS) - At some point in most of our lives we find ourselves in situations that require modification if our lives are going to improve. This may pertain to our jobs, our financial needs and yes, even our health. We understand the trajectory we’re following is not achieving the goals we desire. When enough NEGATIVE sentiment builds […]
DISCOVERING A PATH TOWARD BETTER HEALTH - Let’s face it, it’s not everyone’s goal to live the healthiest lifestyle possible. On the other hand, people do not want to develop and succumb to the diseases we face in life today. One of the problems I’ve witnessed with winning people over to following healthier lifestyles comes from a misunderstanding that life’s pleasures will […]
CHOOSING TO EVOLVE vs GETTING OLD - Every single one of us (if we are fortunate to be blessed with longevity) has the CHOICE to determine how our lives will evolve from our working years to our retirement years. Health certainly plays a major factor which contributes to our physical and mental capabilities and sometimes imposes unfortunate compromises on these choices. To […]
IT STARTS WITH SELF PRIDE - It starts the same way for all of us. We are born as infants fully reliant on our parents or caregivers to supply our every need. We slowly begin to develop both physically and mentally and begin to integrate our existence with the lives of others. We develop these skills as a result of nurturing […]
IT DOESN’T MATTER - I can teach a person the benefits of healthy eating. It doesn’t matter. I can teach a person the benefits of exercise. It doesn’t matter. I can teach a person the benefits of developing self esteem. It doesn’t matter. I can teach a person the benefits of purposeful living. It doesn’t matter. I can teach […]
Who Should We Blame? - Men and Women have a tendency to reflexively and defensively “point fingers” at infinite sources to find blame for life’s difficulties. Often, we spend more time devoted to searching for these sources than we do resolving the problems. What are the driving forces that deflect our focus from problem solving to “name blaming?” What personal […]
A LIFESTYLE OXYMORON - One of the most “beautiful” things about living this oxymoron lifestyle is that it doesn’t discriminate. It welcomes all genders, all races, all religions and all ethnicities. It creates purpose, focus and unyielding commitment by the individual. It leads to the development of community support which adds security to the individual’s life knowing an answer […]
LET’S BE HONEST! - My years of education and successful completion of all academic requirements granted me the privilege to place the letters “DR.” before my name. There are many people with far more education and credentialing who have published articles and books elevating their status to the tops in our profession. Although I applaud their achievements, it appears […]
A “Comment” From a Fellow Blogger Proving Change Is Possible - I’m certain is can be difficult to understand the passion I possess for HEALTH and the meaning it brings to my life when other people are willing to trust my words and follow a new path in life creating physical, mental and emotional BALANCE (also known as GOOD HEALTH.) Scarlet Pen is a fellow writer. […]
Prescription Medication: Weapons of Mass Deception - What if…. I told you the most prestigious medical peer review journals in the world are known to use GHOST WRITERS (well educated and skilled writers paid to write “research” studies with preconceived and possibly fabricated conclusions) to write medical studies proving the safety and efficacy of drugs? I told you the drug manufacturers solicit […]
A Flowchart For Success And Failure - Defining Success and Failure is a challenge in and of itself. It is subjective and arguable. In the following flowchart, I outline some basic key factors that commonly lead to the conclusion stated at the bottom of the flowchart. It is not easy to reveal a plan of action on 1 piece of paper that […]
THE GOLDEN YEARS - What are the golden years? These years have little meaning for most of us until we reach approximately 50 years of age. At this point (if not sooner) we begin to experience various changes in our physiology that begins to interfere with our ability to perform activities of daily living. These changes might include: a […]
“FEEDING” Your Needs - It’s not always about food although many turn to it when they don’t know where else to turn. The quickest way to better weight management and better health is discovering our individual “deficiencies.” How is your relationship? How is your family relationship? How is your job? How is your social life? How is your spiritual […]
After Writing 194 Articles Our Health Problems Only Continue To Worsen - I just realized that I’ve published 194 articles on various health care topics over the last year. I have spent many hours critically evaluating the content and the delivery of each and every message. The information is crucial for so many people living lifestyles that deprive themselves good health and the chance to experience real […]
WHAT CHANGES WORDS INTO ACTIONS? - As I was listening to a Q&A session during a health conference, I heard a Will Rogers quote that struck a chord. He stated: “a man’s mind is changed by experience, not by argument.” I thought to myself this means, “without experience mankind is willing to resist greater abundance and greater opportunities?” Where is the […]
LIVING THE DREAM IS MORE THAN A SERIES OF EVENTS; IT REQUIRES LEARNING A “PROCESS” - Life would be so much easier IF we grew up as children understanding the concept: “PROCESS” Instead, we have a tendency growing up as “extensions” of previous generations following their patterns of behavior. This, inevitably, leads to developmental challenges we face as we age. Whether these problems manifest themselves in our 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or […]
SHOULD WE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE HERD? - CLAIM #1: VACCINES ARE SAFE SOURCE: Health Resources and Services Administration The U.S. government has paid out $3 billion to vaccine-injured families. In all, according to official federal government figures, taxpayers are on the hook for more than $3.3 billion in compensation costs, as noted by the Health Resources and Services Administration, which tracks payouts […]
THE “STUPID” GENE - Anyone who knows me, understands how committed I am to helping people improve the quality of their lives IF they want my help. I love life and enjoy the quality I am fortunate enough to be blessed with. When I recently discussed this topic with my father, he emphasized the word, LUCK (as being one […]
GROWING WEALTH BY GAINING HEALTH - Nearly every month I receive a mailer offering a lovely choice of dinner entree, salad and dessert (complimentary) if I am willing to listen to a speaker tell me the secrets to accumulating wealth. On a few occasions the sub-topics sounded interesting enough to take advantage of the opportunity to have someone else prepare baked […]
Quality Health: Beyond Diet and Exercise - I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of reading about diet and exercise and their impact on quality health (and I write about it!) I’m convinced that unless you live in the Krubera Cave in the western Caucasus Mountains of Abkhazia (site of the deepest cave in the world) you already know that […]
Is Society Following A Suicidal Path? - Suicide is defined as, “the act or an instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally especially by a person of years of discretion and of sound mind.” When we hear this term, we associate it with a person that believes all options have been exhausted leaving only one remaining path left to follow. […]
Changing A False HEALTH Reality - Whether it’s naivety, trust in authority or lack of concern we have blindly followed our government and our health care institutional policies. We read and listen to these policies without ever really processing the content. If it doesn’t “appear” to affect our lifestyle, we nod our heads in acceptance without clearly comprehending what we’re nodding […]
Can Disease Prevention Be This Simple? - These three pictures represent three different cultures that all possess one thing in common. GOOD HEALTH The Tanzania’s Hadza, the Arctic Inuit and the Amish do not suffer from high rates of: heart disease diabetes atherosclerosis high blood pressure cancer obesity autism These cultures have little to no exposure to modern technology and do not […]
HEALTHY MISTAKES - Fear, failure, and loser are just a few words associated with making mistakes. Certainly, the associative properties of these words don’t elevate self esteem, but our own misperceptions often lead to the damaging emotions that result from making mistakes. There is a big difference between trying something new and intentionally doing something wrong. Mistakes may […]
Dr. Colter’s Secret PATENTED TOOLS For Guaranteed Weight Loss And Weight Maintenance - Many people have worked hard throughout the year to lose weight. With the holidays upon us I felt compelled to help insure these losses are not impacted by the holiday season. I am frequently asked for quick methods to achieving weight loss and weight maintenance. Therefore, I have created my newly PATENTED picture program to […]
Achieving A New Life Through Integration - So you woke up, went to the bathroom, looked in the mirror and decided you didn’t like what was looking back at you. You turned your face toward the sink and began thinking about events in the past that brought joy and happiness to your life which immediately put a smile on your face. You […]
A DARK ROOM - Just imagine you had to live for 24 hours in A DARK ROOM whose dimensions were 8’X10″,  lit by a 5 watt bulb without any furniture other than a sleeping cot. The closest town to this oversized “box” was 50 miles away. Close your eyes and envision the life you would live for the next […]
SEEKING BALANCE TO ACHIEVING GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS - Who are the happiest, healthiest people you know? Is it the people with the great wealth? Is it the people in the best physical shape? Is it the smartest people? Is it those with the greatest amounts of power? If you closed your eyes and tried to envision the happiest and healthiest person you’ve known […]
LIVING INTENTIONALLY - After discussing the dangers of Diabetes in my last post and graphically emphasizing the point, I decided it was time to call everyone out from under the table (a place I would hide when I got scared) and help people find a method to achieve a better life. Since each of us are unique and […]
LEADING BY EXAMPLE - In a world filled with violence, hatred, and other actions leading to social unrest it becomes more and more difficult to find role models to redirect our mindset, intentions and goals in life. Our brains receive so many conflicting words, ideas and pictures it is no wonder we find ourselves in the middle of turmoil. […]
A HEALTH SPAN THAT EQUALS A LIFESPAN - When you think about goals in life what are the most common goals you think about? Are they about family, jobs, careers or money? How do you approach these goals? Is there a game plan with incremental reviews to make certain you are on target to achieving your goals? Are they really goals or more […]
ACHIEVING A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PURPOSEFUL LIFE BY ADDING TO THE ARSENAL - YES, It is possible to be Happy, Healthy and Purposeful. Now that I have your attention, I would like to help you understand what it takes. Many look to specifics including: material possessions friends family power wealth Although everything mentioned on this short list may create an emotional response, they are unlikely to achieve the […]
HOLIDAYS: A CAUSE OF CELEBRATION OR DEPRESSION? - Holidays are an inevitable part of all our lives. How we approach them determines whether they bring joy or sadness or both. Following the same path from year to year is likely to create the same outcome from an emotional perspective, so I thought I would provide some suggestions to “shake things up” to offer […]
LEARNING TO BE THE BOSS - When I was growing up, the term “Boss” referred to the “person in charge.” This person had the “power” to tell people what they had to do. Just as we strive to be adults when we’re children, we typically strive to achieve positions of authority in order to  fulfill our need to become some type […]
LEAD BY EXAMPLE - The world today is inundated with problems. The media covers them on a daily basis. As much as these issues frustrate us, we contribute to their ongoing agenda. We have a tendency to point fingers at others and identify “them” to blame for these dilemmas. Without realizing it, this blame game weakens our individual spirits […]
Want To Get Healthy, Follow Your Dog’s Advice - It was about 8am and time to start my day. I got out of bed slowly to prepare my body for the trek to the bathroom. My dog (Tucker, the beagle) looked up at me and decided his day should start as well. As I began to walk, I could feel mild stiffness in the […]
THE “PAINFUL” TRUTH - Three quarters of the year has gone by and our original “resolutions” for the year have likely gone unresolved. Why do we continue to make promises to ourselves year after year that fall far short of the mark? Simple. They lack accountability? What do we lose; what do we sacrifice by not achieving our goals? […]
PERCEPTION - Is the problem eyesight or is the problem vision? Can our realities only extend as far as the eye can see or can our truths extend beyond this point to where our brain can “see?” We are a society that to a large extent places boundaries around tangible pursuits. In part, this structure helps organize behavior […]
Doctors Can’t Spell, But They Know How To Confuse Us With Big Words - Have you ever noticed how important it is for doctors to use big words when discussing health issues. Medical terminology is taught in school, but doctors seem to forget that the average patient hasn’t taken these courses. Early in my practice I remember taking almost 45 minutes to explain in detail a patient’s health problems. I […]
Pursuing A Natural Course For Better Health - As I was reading some medical literature today I came across this article. This was dated from 2010 and discussed the 395 medicines that were in the research stages for development and eventual use. How many billions of dollars go into researching drugs and what are their goals? The average person would assume their intentions […]
FREEDOM FROM FOOD - If the ONLY thing I took away from you was processed foods, fast foods, poor quality restaurant foods, and any other food void of real nutritional value, how happy and fulfilling would your life be? I pose this question, because I believe people place more value and importance on unhealthy eating than they do on […]
Breaking Free From Our Self Imposed Prison - We awaken, we stretch, we check the alarm clock, we get up, we start the day. We don’t think about this process. It’s just something we take for granted over our lifetime. Our imperatives change as we age. Children worry about school. adolescents worry about friends and popularity, young adults worry about career choices, adults […]
Helping SOCIETY Achieve Good Health - What buttons need to be pushed in order for you to turn your current lifestyle into a healthy vibrant lifestyle? For most people, life is lived from day to day. The concept of “planning” is rarely entertained. In most cases each day looks similar to the previous one. The most popular event that people are […]
Achieving Success By Giving - Each day I sit at my computer trying to create meaningful stories that express my feelings and concerns about the world we live in. I try to reveal the truth about relevant topics because they affect so many of our lives. At this point in my life I believe this is my purpose. Some people appreciate and […]
FEAR Is Not A Viable Choice - Initially, when I thought about the word “FEAR” the image that came to mind was an individual withdrawing from a situation that elicited this emotion. It was a personal emotion which resided in the mind and caused this response. As the days go by and the stories spread throughout the United States about the various doctors […]
SIMPLIFYING LIFE & HEALTH - The human body is an amazingly complex structure originating from one cell that underwent division. From this ongoing process, a life was created. In most cases, this process repeats itself perfectly trillions of times. Healthcare professionals understand about 5% of the processes the body is capable of achieving. Each individual only uses about 10% of […]
DO THE EXPERTS KNOW BEST? - Where do experts come from? They come from the general population and are differentiated only by their education and certifications. The title Expert can not be substituted with the title omnipotent. Experts make errors, falsify data, and lie just like members in the general population. Their titles add credibility to their work which sometimes receives favorable […]
Sunshine Blogger Award - I would like to thank the seasoned heart ( for including me in this nomination group. She balances a life consisting of mother, wife and college professor and somehow finds time to blog about exciting, healthy, tasty, recipes. I would encourage readers to view her site for wonderful ideas. . . . Here are the […]
UNDERSTANDING “WHY” WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH? - There is an infinite amount of information available to the consumer pertaining to healthy living. It includes: How to effectively exercise and lose weight How to change your diet for healthier living How to reduce your stress to feel better How to improve your nightly sleeping habits With all this information available, WHY is it so […]
GOOD HEALTH ≠ HAPPINESS - My blog site is called All About Healthy Choices. I chose this name to contrast with all my years of clinical training as a physician. Although diagnostics and clinical analysis are important, I have learned that patients need so much more than good lab values to really experience good health. As a young doctor, I […]
HEALTH ISSUES: How To Avoid Repeating The Same “MISTAKES?” - I write about health because it is my PASSION. When I awaken in the morning I scan my mind for the potential activities of the day. I get excited about this daily ritual which always puts a smile on my face. Am I going to lift weights, bike ride, train on an elliptical, take Tucker […]
HOW TO MAXIMIZE LIVING (with Reduced Stress and increased Happiness) - Most of us are so busy taking care of life’s daily responsibilities, we generally don’t think about the steps needed to maximize quality living. We create daily patterns of living attempting to accomplish essential tasks.  These patterns have a tendency to develop as a RESULT of these tasks rather than an implemented STRATEGY. We tend […]
SELLING PRESCRIPTION DRUGS WITH TV COMMERCIALS - This commercial is only 42 seconds. Please watch it before reading the article. Since the average American watches over 6 hours of TV on a daily basis, it makes sense for large corporations to advertise their products on TV. Those with the most convincing ads will gain the support and spending dollars of the consumer. This is […]
VERY INSPIRING BLOGGER AWARD - I would like to thank two blog sites that nominated me for this honor: These two sites offer inspiration, motivation and incredible dedication. I have learned a great deal about life from both sites. I am honored that they believe in me and the subjects I write about. Please, take some time to log […]
THE WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE - Many of us know that our weight is a problem, however, it really doesn’t interfere with our abilities to do the daily tasks at hand. We know it leads to high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, liver disease, gall bladder disease, high cholesterol, stroke and cancer. The list is pretty long, but the fear […]
THE ROOT CAUSE - We live in a very complicated world. It seems that the central theme is based on GROWTH. Businesses have to grow; countries have to grow; people have to grow. The way we tend to go about this process is typically at each other’s expense. The diplomatic term is “competition.” Competition separates people and creates a […]
FAILING: The Greatest Achievement Necessary For Success - Failure is one of the most essential components for happiness and success. As toddlers we fail all the time without understanding the concept and stigma of failure. First, we fail at crawling, then standing, then walking, then talking, etc… Toddlers do not understand societal pressures and therefore, through innate persistence, repeat these behaviors until success is achieved. […]
Today’s Truth; Tomorrow’s Fallacy - I love research. I love to learn about new findings in research to help develop plans to assist people with improving their quality of living. The reality, however, is this; research in most cases is no more than our “best educated guess.” This statement is not intended to imply that research is useless. Research is based […]
Improving The Doctor-Patient Relationship - Over the last 20 years, I have tried to help create a positive impact on the lives of my patients. I have laughed with them. I have cried with them. I have educated them and they have educated me. Many view the doctor-patient relationship unilaterally. They see the doctor as the giver and the patient as […]
Metabolic Realities - Whether you want to lose weight or gain weight, understanding metabolic realities is important. Everyone has a basal metabolic rate. This measures the amount of calories consumed by the body to maintain life. Calories are needed for respiration, cardiac function, kidney function, etc…. About 70% of calorie expenditure comes from the basal metabolic rate; about […]
THE LAST 2-5 POUNDS Of “Needed” Weight Loss - “I can’t lose the last 2-5 pounds.”  How many of you out there have been frustrated beyond belief over these last 2-5 pounds?  While most people in society view those of you in this category as “NUTS” because they would kill to look as healthy and in shape as you are, it is a problem more […]
Do You Live In The Best Country? - If you watch or read the news, you probably have noticed a great deal of space taken up with violence world wide. Terrorists, bombings, war, and crime are themes that attract so much attention, a day will not go by without some mention of at least one of these topics. We claim that we are […]
