#744 MM- The Importance of Playing. Even as Adults

Posted on: Mon, Oct 15, 2018, at 5:07 am

When’s the last time you played? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Most people think that playing is for kids, but the reality is that adults need time to play too. What is play you ask? Well, it’s living in the moment and doing something not for competition or because you have to. Often play is spontaneous, like breaking out in a pillow fight. I’m sure it’s been too long since you played. But you need to know that people who take time to relax and live in the moment not only live longer they also have more satisfying relationships with their spouse, children, and event their own parents. Take time out for a hobby or just get out and throw the ball around. Whatever it is – have fun doing it. And if weather permits – play outside and soak up the fresh air too.

#740: MM- How Much is Too Much Salt?

Posted on: Fri, Oct 12, 2018, at 3:10 pm

If someone told you to watch your salt intake, do you even know what that means? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Salt, which is listed as sodium on nutritional labels is not your friend. Not only does too much salt cause you to swell and bloat, it can also raise your blood pressure. Too much salt is also is bad for your bones. When you eat too much salt the body decreases the amount of calcium it can absorb. It also causes you to excrete calcium through your urine, basically depleting your bones of what they need to stay strong and stay healthy. How much is too much you ask? It’s best to keep your daily sodium intake between 1500-2300 mg per day. Unfortunately, the average American consumes twice that amount. So – don’t be the average American.

Posted on: Fri, Oct 12, 2018, at 3:05 pm

Show Topic: Bipolar Disorder Co-Hosts:  Judy Gaman, Larry North Guest: Michael G. Pipich Segment 1: Today we are talking about bipolar disorder with Michael Pipich LMFT, author of Owning Bipolar: How Patients and Families Can Take Control of Bipolar Disorder. Doctors Gaman and Anderson are out today and we have Larry North joining us as a guest host.  DOC SHOCK A new study has linked marijuana use and schizophrenia.  Although still illegal in most states, marijuana is gaining popularity due to its health benefits.  Past studies have shown that marijuana use can increase the risk of psychosis. The risk of this has always been relatively low.  However, the study out of Tel Aviv University in Israel shows that those with a family history of psychotic disorders are more likely to develop them with marijuana use.  The study used mice as their test subjects.  One of the groups included mice that were susceptible to schizophrenia.  These mice, after being exposed to THC, were more likely to develop the disorder than those at normal risk.  Always be honest and talk to your doctor if you use marijuana.  Read more!

#1013: MM- It’s Flu Season!

Posted on: Mon, Oct 08, 2018, at 5:07 am

It’s almost flu season, time to get that flu vaccine!  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Staying Young Medical Minute.  The flu virus is highly contagious and can turn deadly fast.  You may be thinking that the flu vaccine can cause the actual flu—this isn’t true.  In fact, it takes the vaccine about two weeks before becoming effective and it doesn’t contain a live virus, making an infection from it impossible.  Chances are, you were already exposed by the time you received the vaccine.  Most of the population waits until an epidemic before getting vaccinated.  Although the flu vaccine does not guarantee complete immunity, it does decrease your chances of getting the flu by forty to sixty percent.  I don’t know about you, but I like those odds!  Talk to your doctor about the flu vaccine today!  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
