A FICTIONAL LETTER FROM A FICTIONAL PATIENT AND MY FICTIONAL RESPONSE: DOES IT RESONATE WITH YOU?

Dear Dr. Colter, After you performed an exam on me and determined I needed multiple lifestyle changes to progress toward better health, I decided to visit my primary physician. You scared me and I needed reassurance that you were WRONG! My primary physician reviewed my history and asked me what the problem was? I told […]

SOLUTIONS: ARE THEY SUBCONSCIOUSLY PART OF THE PROBLEM?

Understanding Our Naive Fear Of Disease

Why shaking hands is out at the Olympics? “Olympians are told to fist-bump, not shake hands, to prevent the spread of norovirus.” Let’s begin this post by excluding the obvious…when skiers are wearing mittens, how does “fist bumping” offer greater protection from bacterial or viral infections than shaking hands? Clearly it doesn’t, but consumers would […]
