Spring is upon us. That means longer, brighter, warmer days—and a whole bunch of pollen and other irritants to stir up those allergies and make life miserable. Most people turn to over-the-counter antihistamines and decongestants to alleviate discomfort until they need something stronger. Big Pharma has created powerful drugs to mask allergy symptoms, but these medications have a host […]

Prescription Drugs Do More Harm Than Good

Aegrescit medendo: “The disease worsens with the treatment” from the Aeneid by Roman poet Virgil, 70–19 BC As a conventionally trained physician, I recognize and appreciate the breakthrough medications that truly save lives and enhance health.

Last year, we lost two of our most beloved comedians, Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. Who can forget Robin Williams’ improvisations and the characters he brought to life in Mork and Mindy, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Patch Adams, in which he played a pediatrician who used humor as medicine. Or Joan Rivers’ zingers, which were often […]

Squeeze Out Heart Disease With EECP

A little over a year ago, the European Society of Cardiology gave enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) a new classification recommending that physicians should consider this therapy for the treatment of angina and stable coronary artery disease. (The old guidelines merely indicated that they “may consider” EECP.) This is a huge deal because EECP is safe, noninvasive, and […]

The Many Health Benefits of Chocolate

Valentine’s Day is synonymous with chocolate. Americans buy a billion dollars’ worth of candy for this holiday every year, and 75 percent of it is chocolate.
