The holiday season really is one of the most wonderful times of the year but for some people it can be extremely lonely. Being an ER physician I don’t get weekends and holidays off, we typically split the holidays amongst the group. Last year I was traveling down to a small town outside of Houston to work once a week every month. The hospital was having a tough time staffing EM physicians full time so I went down there to help out. I worked the week of Christmas and was staying in a hotel far away from friends and family. I remember going to work and realizing the cafeteria was closed and there weren’t any restaurants open. I managed to gather up some snacks from vending machines and watched some holiday classics in my hotel room for Christmas. This year my mom and her best friend have been in town all week and I’m fortunate enough to be able to travel back to Chicago for the holidays. Some people won’t be able to be near family this year so take a look around you and if you notice a friend or co worker that doesn’t have plans, open your home to them. One small act of kindness can mean the world to them.
Trying to maintain Christmas traditions in the midst of caregiving is hard. Follow these tips to make the most of the holidays via U.S. News:
Adjust Expectations: Don't aim for perfection. You can't make the pizzelles this year? No sweat. Share your recipe with another family member, and have him or her make them instead.
Gift to Yourself Before Others: Put yourself and your health first. That can recharge you for plowing forward with the gift giving.
Clear the Air With Family
If you regularly get together with family, be in the moment and enjoy the moment. But do take the time for some heart-to-heart communication.

What does health mean to you? Freedom from pain? Freedom from medication? Being able to live the life you want to without obstruction?
This is why I use OMT in my practice every day. I'm able to offered to my patient something that they can't get from other physicians, an opportunity to help their own body to move toward health, however they define it.
I'm interested in hearing how you use OMT. If anyone has stories or examples of how OMT makes a difference in patient care let's use #thatDOdifference and let the world know that OMT matters to our patients!

This picture was taken now about 10 years ago. When I run into this picture I remember my vision and know this vision is shared by many colleagues. Most of us are already pioneering this very thing in our own way. • Can you identify the clinical setting here? • What other setting do you see preventative oral health & education? 👩⚕️🤝👨⚕️ “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” -Jonathan Swift

Sexual Dysfunction is more prevalent in Women than Men
It is estimated that approximately 40 million American women are affected by Female Sexual Dysfunction ( FSD). Some investigators have found that sexual dysfunction is more prevalent in women (43%) than in men (31%), and increases as women age. Unlike men FSD can occur in young women in their 20’s. Some recent studies have noted that married women have a lower risk of sexual dysfunction than unmarried women. Racial differences have also been noted. Hispanic women consistently report lower rates of sexual problems, whereas African American women have higher rates of decreased sexual desire and pleasure than do white women. Sexual pain (dyspareunia), however, is more likely to occur in white women. Read more:
Don't let any chemist sell to you red and yellow capsules and collect your money. Sometimes all we need is some health education( that's what we do here), a little break and maybe two tabs of pcm.
I remember when I prescribed these 3 for my friend, she felt so good she forgot to keep her online followup appointment(very typical of patients tho, they immediately forget the doctor once symptoms are gone)
- don't be quick to request for a drug prescription
- drink lots of water
- eat lots of fruits and vegetables
- try to rest as much as you can
- mind your business
- don’t seek validation from people
- youre doing just fine
