Is it true what they say about coconut oil?
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Tuesday, 22nd August, 2017

There had been so much advertising and new product development around coconut oil - and all things coconut - that I thought I would let you in on what the medical literature says. Looks like it should be a short-lived fad if science has anything to do with it! Despite the fact that there are no good data on health benefits related to coconut oil, 72% of the American public ...

on Monday, 29th May, 2017

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. Two of the world's top 10 restaurants are in Peru. Although we didn't ...

Loving Nature in Peru
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Saturday, 6th May, 2017

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Peru. I'm in awe of the Incan respect for the earth and how they worked within their natural environment, which happens to be magnificent. There had been many indigenous cultures prior to the Incas, but they were the most sophisticated and left the most to view of any cultures, especially regarding architecture. A tour ...

Zero to 50,000 - The 20th Anniversary of the Hospitalist
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Thursday, 6th April, 2017

Patients often ask which hospital they should go to in an emergency. I tell them they can go to whichever one they prefer, since my group no longer rounds at the hospital. Our patients are taken care of by the hospital-based doctors. Let’s discuss why this came about and how you can advocate for yourself if you require admission. The field of ‘hospitalists’ ...

“You waste life when you waste good food” - Katherine Anne Porter Not a soul would go to bed hungry if we did not waste the food we grow. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) states that one-third of food produced for human consumption worldwide is lost or wasted annually. That accounts for 1.3 billion ...

Get Fit, Live Longer
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Monday, 26th December, 2016

There is much discussion in the medical literature about which is more important for a long healthy life, being fit or having a healthy weight. There isn’t a simple answer, so I’d like to thank my colleagues for debating these points with me over the past few days. For sure, FITNESS is VERY important. From a medical standpoint, fitness means being able to perform ...

The Power of Strength
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 9th November, 2016

Here’s what drove home the importance of strength training to me. I was helping my daughter get one last piece of IKEA furniture - I must say we are MASTER IKEA furniture putter-togethers! We were able to get the kitchen table into her car, but then came the chore of carrying it up a few flights of steps. It was heavy and packed in a long, thin carton. As we were standing ...

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Saturday, 29th October, 2016

Lifestyle medicine - just the name conjures up thoughts of docs lying on a beach, drink in hand, stethoscope dangling just above the sand, doesn’t it? I just returned from a conference hosted by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine with four other doctors from our group. Even the T-shirt for the event has palm trees with a light and breezy effect, suggesting that ...

What's New In Shingles Vaccines?
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 28th September, 2016

When I talk to patients about the vaccines they should get routinely, we review Prevnar 13 and PneumoVax 23, the two pneumonia vaccines that should be given to seniors and other special people, a year apart; a tetanus booster given every ten years, including one adult dose of the tetanus and whooping cough combo (although Medicare will not cover it), and the shingles vaccine, ...
