Discusses Women's Health

I have always thought that there was too much concern about GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) and that genetic engineering of our food sources might be the way to prevent future starvation in our overpopulated world. After all, genetically engineered crops are touted as a way to increase yields, allow plants to thrive when irrigated less…

A part of healthcare diligence is getting an eye examination. After the age of 40, many women are told by their friendly ophthalmologist “I see the beginning of cataracts”. Or worse, especially as we get older “You have cataracts.” That pronouncement does not equate with total loss of vision for most Americans who have access…

As I sipped my afternoon cup of coffee, I came across an article in the journal Menopause that examined the association between caffeine and menopausal symptoms. How relevant I thought…after all 85% of the US population consumes some form of caffeine containing beverage daily. And 80% of women going through perimenopausal and menopause have vasomotor…

I rarely write website articles on prenatal issues, but I thought that the fish debate was one that would be interesting, not just to my patients who are considering getting or are already pregnant, but also to their mothers, mother-in-laws and the rest of the family and friends who eagerly offer advice as soon as…

This week I’m going to diverge from my usual review and commentary of articles published in peer-reviewed journals and write about one that I read in the New York Times. The headline read “Younger Skin Through Exercise” and after I dutifully read the pages devoted to the conflicts in the Ukraine and Syria, I was…

This week I’m going to give a lecture at the annual conference of the Academy for Anti-Aging in Las Vegas. They asked me to give a talk months ago, and hey, a weekend in Vegas sounded great. I will report on the conference and my talk next week. When I power-pointed my talk, I included…

As you have heard from media reports and perhaps read on my website, there is conflicting advice as to how much calcium we should consume and how much we should strive to add on with supplements. The side effects of nutritional supplements are emphasized in many new studies but don’t necessarily impact the choices of…

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…

Imagine going through an entire pregnancy only to have your baby die at or within a month of birth. Nor do we expect to lose our lives during childbirth. Most American women would say that this is a tragic scenario that is far more likely to occur in developing countries. That’s correct, but a new…

I sometimes think that half of the ads I see on TV (when I don’t rush through them with TIVO) show individuals clutching their chest after eating their favorite food or, more visually, chest cavity flames, which are subsequently doused with the right over-the-counter medicine or prescription drug. Having suffered from gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD)…
