Carbs are a gateway drug!

Carbs are a gateway drug!

For the better part of my adult life, my diet has consisted of rice, bread, pasta and cheese. If it (or a majority of its ingredients) didn’t come from a can or a box, I likely didn’t eat it. Vegetables didn’t exist in my diet unless they were cooked as part of a casserole, and only then if I couldn’t see/taste/identify them. I was not the pillar of health.

Despite my ignoramus level stupid eating habits, my blood pressure, cholesterol, etc were fine. It seemed that aside from being about 100 pounds overweight, I was healthy (and as big as) a horse. That all changed 3 weeks ago.

Go see the Doctor part 2: Cardiac Boogaloo!

I know, I know, I haven’t written in a long time. Life has seriously gotten in the way of many things that I enjoy. Here I am though, writing like nothing has happened because hey… blogosphere. Many moons ago I wrote a piece about getting checked out by a doctor on a regular basis. Keeping […]

Surviving the Holidays with your Spouse – Part 4 – the ‘Afterparty’

Alright, the gifts are purchased, wrapped, presented, and unwrapped. The last people have left the last shindig, and the kids are finally asleep in bed. Phew! I know your first instinct is to turn into a TV or computer zombie and let the peace of the END of the Holidays wash over you before the New Year celebrations kick in – but I think that there is one more little ‘party’ you need to attend. The “just me and my spouse” party.

Surviving the Holidays with your Wife – Part 3 – Events

Whether it’s the employer’s Holiday Function, a Latke Party, Cookie Party, or Family Function, danger can lurk anywhere. Not that the December Holidays should sound too much like October, but sometimes ghosts and ghouls would be a nice reprieve from an eternal evening with the in-laws. This is where you and your wife need to have a plan and work together.

On Autism

On Autism

Since Amanda and I spent two GH-days waxing poetic about the benefits of vaccination, I thought it was appropriate to dedicate a follow-up article to autism. Of course, this not because autism is related to vaccinations, but because it isn’t.

Does Timing Affect Saving Your Child and the World?

Does Timing Affect Saving Your Child and the World?

On Monday, when the first article about vaccinations was published, there was a great deal of conversation on our respective Facebook pages, mostly surrounding the issue of the timing of vaccinations, and the potential risks of offering too many vaccinations at one time. A good deal of the information about why physicians, parents, and public health officials might want to consider adjusting the timing of vaccines during infancy came from Denise Shepler, RN BSN. Denise has four years of experience in maternal/neonatal nursing. With her permission, I have summarized her thoughts here.

Pleats are the devil’s vents.

Maybe you should get checked out, by more than just women...

Maybe you should get checked out, by more than just women…

I don’t always eat well and my exercise regimen is about as impressive as a Dan Brown novel but I will contend that I have a better health view than most of you. Mostly because I visit a doctor for a check up twice a year. My boss once called me a morbid bastard when I told him I […]
