Did you know that not only has the bulk of research conducted on UV exposure and sun protection been conducted in women, but the few that have looked at men have discovered a rather troubling fact: Guys are far less concerned about visible aging than women, in part due to different cultural pressures to retain a youthful look. But more importantly, when they skip the sunscreen, they do so…

    When it comes to health, many of us neglect our skin. But think about it: its protection allows us to function and when it is well cared for and it allows our inner beauty to shine through. And yet, few of us think beyond the obvious appearance issues to the fact that the effects of aging on skin can lead to certain dermatological conditions that cause illness and even death. Researchers say that in the U.S., a majority of people over the age of 65 have at least one skin disorder; in the UK, 70% of older people experience skin conditions, many of which are preventable. Guess what? I’m…

Theoretically, two pills daily with meal would address ovarian or thyroid ‘weakness, menstrual disorders,…

    You would think that surviving cancer would be enough, but it’s not. Completing cancer treatments or undergoing surgery is only the beginning. Most cancer survivors are eager to return to good health, but aren’t always ready to think beyond recovery. It’s even more challenging for anyone who discovers they have additional health complications prior to being diagnosed or as a by-product of recovery. The last thing you want to hear as a cancer survivor is that you’re also a high risk for heart disease. That was me. Despite resuming my regular exercise schedule six weeks after surgery, I…

    I got home from work last night numb from the neck up, figuratively speaking, although the sensation of it wasn’t far off. I was exhausted, having slept only about 22 hours in the number of days I’d typically sleep 40, and frequently interrupted, however briefly, throughout the week. By Thursday night I wasn’t really sleeping at all. I did manage a 90 minute nap, in the wee hours immediately preceding my alarm going off. Last night it was no effort to do some yoga, manage appropriate calories, have a shower and go to bed; I was on auto pilot at that point, and just following…

    15 Aug 2014 | 2:20 pm
    Even after nearly 40 years of use, hormone replacement remains a source of confusion for women and the doctors who treat them. During the early development stages of hormone replacement, it was thought that synthetic hormones could safely alleviate the symptoms of menopause. Now that pendulum has swung swiftly in the opposite direction, with the consensus urging women to avoid all forms of this treatment. Many patients are now choosing bioidentical hormones as a safer alternative for menopause-related discomfort.
