Medical Marijuana - It's Complicated
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Tuesday, 23rd January, 2018

on Tuesday, 16th January, 2018

Thanks to Dr. Nathan for bringing our attention to an article in the New York Times on 1/5/2018 titled, “How to Counter the Circus of Pseudoscience,” by Lisa Pryor, a medical doctor and author of “A Small Book About Drugs.” It might lend some insight into the struggles we physicians have with saying yes or no to supplements that our patients ask about. ...

Like many of my patients, I not only have cold hands, but I have Raynaud’s. When I’m out in the cold, touch a cold steering wheel, or sometimes walk through the freezer section in the supermarket, my fingertips turn ...

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Sunday, 10th December, 2017

You may be tired of hearing that exercise is good for you. And you may wonder if it’s too late to start a routine once you’ve already been diagnosed with heart disease.

Ten Percent Is Nothing To Sneeze At
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 6th December, 2017

As you might have read recently, review of the influenza season in the Southern Hemisphere demonstrated that this year’s flu vaccine was only 10% effective there. It is too early in the Northern Hemisphere to predict whether the vaccine that we have been giving will be any more effective. We do know that the vaccine composition is similar, and presumably, the flu viruses ...

Just One Word ... Plastics
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 1st November, 2017

Sometimes you hear a news clip that impacts you due to where and when you hear them. A few weeks ago, I listened to a report on plastics on NPR while driving out to the Chesapeake Bay.

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Tuesday, 22nd August, 2017

Despite the fact that there are no good data on health benefits related to coconut oil, 72% of the American public ...

In Part One about our trip to Peru, I promised you a Part Two - so here it is! Anyone who has read my blogs knows that food is foremost on my mind. At the time we planned our trip however, we were unaware that Peruvian cooking has made its mark on world cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed the fruits of its labor.
