Life is Short

I recently saw a beautiful picture of Iguazu Falls in Argentina on the Internet. It reminded me of my visit several years ago. It was a magical experience. I remember watching the beautiful falls and closing my eyes to quiet my mind and enjoy the sound. When I opened them, I was covered in beautiful…

Innovative Therapies to Treat and Prevent Alzheimer’s disease By Robin Miller MD, MHS and David Kahn MS, CPT 

Whenever I ask patients what their biggest fear is regarding their health, the answer is fairly unanimous. They are most afraid of losing their minds. If you gave people a choice between getting cancer or Alzheimer’s, the vast majority would pick cancer. National studies reflect similar feelings all over the country. But the concern doesn’t…

Probiotics: Are They Good For Your Health?By Robin H. Miller MD, MHS and David Es. Kahn MS, CPT

You’ve seen the TV commercials promoting special yogurt to rid abdominal cramps, bloating, and make up for years of poor eating habits. And you must be wondering, “What makes yogurt so therapeutic?” Wonder no longer: yogurt contains probiotics. What are probiotics? Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for us—improving the balance of good and…

Got Stress? Deal With It!

Stress is inevitable in our lives. It is something that causes us to react with a fight or flight response. This response is something that has protected us through the ages. When confronted with a perceived dangerous situation, a chemical reaction in the body takes place that can improve alertness and our ability to move…

Love Heals

Listening to the Sunday news pundits, angry hateful words from some of the presidential candidates, and watching recent breaking news has caused me to look at what might make a difference to us individually and as a nation. There is one thing. That thing is love. The power of it is amazing. For starters, half…

A History of Meanness

In 1968 a very brave teacher named Jane Elliott embarked on a social experiment with her classroom of third graders. She wanted to teach them about prejudice. In my opinion, she taught them and us a whole lot more. She divided the class into blue-eyed children and brown and green-eyed children. She said that the…

What Will You Choose?

I recently returned from a conference where I heard an amazing presentation. Dr. Stanley Hazen of the Cleveland Clinic presented data that showed a correlation between the consumption of L-carnitine and choline and levels of a substance in the gut that has been correlated with the risk of heart disease and stroke. Large amounts of…

What to Do About Stress

Global warming with crazy weather happenings, ISIS and domestic terrorism, the upcoming elections and the ranting of politicians, trying to help patients get well when they cannot afford the medications that will heal them, these are just a few things that have led me to write once again about ….STRESS! Stress is one of those…

Mammograms DO Save Lives!

The American Cancer Society has come out with new recommendations regarding screening mammography for breast cancer. They recommend starting regular screening at age 45, yearly screening from 45 to 54, and screening every 2 years after that. They also discourage self and in-office breast exams. I have to strongly disagree. I understand their concerns about…

Time for a Second Opinion?

As in life, in medicine there are rarely black and white answers to questions and treatments for medical conditions. Many of us have experienced different doctors with different personalities who either fit with us or did not.  When situations arise and you need treatment or diagnostic evaluation, and you feel things are not going in…

Useful Tips for Weight Loss

Nutritionists and scientists have long tried to unlock the secrets of overeating. But some of the best information is coming from an unexpected source: marketing experts! It turns out that even the most self-aware individuals are subject to mindless eating. Most of the research comes from a marketing professor, Dr Brian Wansink, from Stanford University.…

All That Gas

I would estimate that one out of every 4 women I see complains of having too much gas. Over the last 5 years I have had 2 men bring up gas issues, and they only did it because their wives told them it was a problem. I find this an amusing phenomenon. Most women are…

Whose Decision Is It Anyway?

I am an Integrative Medicine physician. I see each patient as a unique individual, and I come up with a plan to help him or her to heal. In order to tailor a plan to each patient, I utilize both complimentary (herbs, acupuncture, energy medicine, etc.) and conventional medicine. Unfortunately, some patients come to me…

I Love Lucy

As I was getting ready to walk my dog Lucy, it dawned on me that I have never been healthier. I owe some of the credit for this to her. Lucy is part basset hound and German shepherd. She is one of the funniest looking dogs on the planet. She has front legs that are…

The Long Goodbye

Almost two years ago my mother-in-law passed away. Unfortunately, she had started leaving us long before her body finally gave out. She had Alzheimer’s disease. It started 7 years before. At first we noticed that she was repeating herself. Then, she would get uncomfortable and disoriented when she left her house. She came to visit…

Pay It Forward

We are living in tumultuous times. We have so many things that tend to pop up and cause worry. Finances, health, emotional and family problems are all common issues. Many people start to get a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. This impacts their health causing pain, disease, fatigue and depression. I care for many patients…

Coffee Talk

I am addicted to coffee and proud of it. I look forward to the ritual of that morning cup of coffee to start my day. I felt guilty for many years with the thought that maybe it was not such a healthy thing to be drinking. However, as more studies have been done, I feel…

Time to Dance!

Exercise is hard for many of us to do on a regular basis. Yet, it is something that is essential for overall health. I always urge my patients to find a form they enjoy doing. Then, it really doesn’t feel like exercise. About a year ago I decided that it was time for me to…

All About Me, Really?

I read a wonderful article by David Brooks of the New York Times called “The Moral Bucket List”.   He spoke about what is really important in our lives. I saw him interviewed about the topic. He pointed out that as a result of our desire to make our children feel special there is a growing…

On Love and Loss

As a baby boomer, I have joined the ranks of many of my brethren and can say I am part of the “sandwich” generation. I have children who are young adults and still needing support so they can eventually become independent. I had a parent that needed my help to fly and leave his nest…

Vaccinate Your Babies Please

I have to admit, I am baffled. Why are we arguing about giving children vaccines? I do not understand why parents would not want to protect their children from diseases that could harm or even kill them. There is no connection between vaccines and autism. Many, many studies have shown that. Andrew Wakefield who initially…

“The Purpose of Our Lives Is to Be Happy” — The Dalai Lama

How Can You Find Happiness?

 During this time of year the subject of happiness seems to come up quite a bit. Tis’ the season. What is happiness all about? Many scientists have tried to answer that question. One of the major studies was the Harvard Grant Study. In this study the researchers followed 268 male Harvard undergraduates from the classes…
