Do You Have a Bully for a Doctor?

Doctors are all too human.

One way this shows up is that some of them may act like bullies. You, or someone you know may have run across this type of doctor.

The potential damage medical bullying can cause is great. But there are lesser degrees of this damage as well.

Here is an article that talks about this issue. It lists three different types of bullying doctors. It also gives you guidelines to identify if your doctor is acting like this. And it offers some solutions.

Another Brain Benefit of Omega-3

DHA is on of the essential omega-3 fatty acids. That means your body doesn’t make it. You must get it from food.

There are many benefits from omega-3. Now you can add one more: it keeps your memory sharp.

Evidence for this comes from research at University of Alberta. In the study, they found that DHA improved relay of messages from one memory cell to another. That’s a big deal, especially as you age.

And although the Alberta study was done with rats, there are also human studies that show this benefit.

Most People Lose Energy After 50

The only thing worse that getting older is that the alternative is death.

Case in point is that both men and women often find they have less energy as they age. That decreases their ability to get things done and enjoy life.

There are lots of reasons for this. These include diet, exercise and stress.

Thankfully, there are things that can help. Making better dietary choices, for example. Exercising more and finding other ways to reduce stress also help.

But if those aren’t enough, there are specialized herbs that can help. There are herbs suitable for both men and women. There are also herbs specifically focused for each.

If you think these might be useful, it is important to consult someone knowledgeable about them. This is something I do in my practice in Reno. Consultations can be done in person, or by phone and email. You can contact me by clicking here.
