Health pearls

We live in an era of maybe “too much" medical information. As most of us know, medical information and opinions can drastically change over time. 

In Health Pearls, we will try to summarize some recent scientific studies for you in the hope that the information will help you lead a more healthy life. However, we hope we won’t have to oscillate back and forth, telling you one week to stop doing what we were advising the prior week! We do not claim to be experts in all medical fields but rest assured that we do practice what we preach.

We hope all the pearls we will be gathering will help you on your journey to good health and happiness!

Health Pearls in the Time of Coronavirus: How to Manage Your Chronic Medical Problems
written by Aimee Seidman, M.D., FACP
on Monday, 30th March, 2020

  Let’s face it. Staying at home is no picnic for most of us. For many people, irritability, boredom, and lethargy ensue so that you’re annoyed most of the time. It’s hard to get out of the slump to do anything except lay around. I myself was shamed into going outside to walk with my family and the two dogs, and at least I get to go out to my office during the week! ...

Epistaxis - or everything you ever wanted to know about nosebleeds
written by Hosai Todd Hesham, MD
on Wednesday, 22nd January, 2020

It is winter and to my practice that means several daily calls with the complaint of nosebleeds, otherwise known as epistaxis. It is truly amazing how much blood can come out of a person's nose. Perhaps, /amazing/ is not a word most people would use to describe it. Words like scary, terrifying, alarming may be more appropriate. This is what I remind myself whenever I see a ...
