Discusses Women's Health

Many of us have now assumed certain grandparenting duties with joy and pleasure, especially if we do can them without the duress of becoming the primary care giver … Apparently there have been very few studies on what this role does to our cognitive health. So I read with great interest the article that appeared…

Last Friday, I delivered one of the keynote addresses for the annual conference of the Academy of Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine in Las Vegas. It was a huge conference and I was somewhat overwhelmed by the 3500 medical personnel who attended. The topic of anti-aging is certainly one of major concern to medical practitioners and…

I searched this last week’s medical journals to find an article to write about. Unfortunately there was nothing I felt would be of interest to most of my patients. My fall back is usually JAMA, but the latest issue dealt with combat casualties, care for mass casualty events, treatment of post dramatic stress disorder and…

I know this is the Fourth of July weekend and many of my patients and readers will be busy with family, barbecues and hopefully celebrating the independence of the fabulous country we live in. (And, of course, there are those wonderful sales!). But if you happen to be glancing at this website, I want to…

I just spent an amazing week at a spa near San Diego where I was able to hike, perform tai chi, yoga, dance, work out in a gym, meditate and even create art. It was a wonderful week of healing and renewal for my body and soul. Upon return, my state of “zen-hood” was altered…

We all know that Bacchus was a man. Based on gender stereotypes, most of us assume that women are less likely to excessively imbibe alcohol then men. (For the sake of transparency, the Superbowl was playing while I wrote this and all that celebrated testosterone caused me to make that last statement). But not necessarily so……

I no longer have to take exams (except for recent on-line traffic school), nor do most of my contemporaries. But we all have to maintain our learning and memory skills in order to live our daily lives and to perform adequately or hopefully, better than adequately, in our professions. Even if we don’t have to…

It’s amazing to realize that it was just 10 years ago that the Women’s Health Initiative results were released with extraordinary media brouhaha, causing as many as 70% of women who were taking menopausal hormone therapy (usually Prempro) to cease and desist…and in many instances flush, flash and lose sleep. But with time, additional studies…

There are three ailments that most of us fear as we get older: losing our mental capacities, cardiovascular disease and cancer. In deference to reading time and latest articles, I am only going to deal with one, dementia. As I perused this month’s issue of the Journal Menopause (did I ever mention that its cover…
