    Encore Episode: Room-by-Room Flu Prevention for Unwanted House Guests

    If just one person in your household comes down with the flu, it can just take a few hours for it to spread to everyone.Can you believe it’s already time to prepare for another flu season? It feels like we just wrapped up the last one, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it’s time to prepare for the 2018-2019 flu season now, especially coming off of a horrible season that killed more children than any other non-pandemic year on record. Dr. Bond's guest, Dr. Ken Redcross, board-certified internal medicine physician and author of Bond: The 4 Cornerstones of a Lasting and Caring Relationship with Your Doctor, says if just one person in your household comes down with the flu, it can just take a few hours for it to spread to everyone. In fact, it only takes one sick person’s cough to spread 2,000 virus-laden droplets into the air. Having a strong immune system is key to protection and keeping it clean from the inside out, including your environmental surroundings, can make the difference in whether or not you will catch flu. Dr. Redcross joins Dr. Bond to explain how tackling influenza room-by-room in your home can keep those unwanted house guests (aka: germs) from invading your space and thus lower your chances of getting sick this season. He also provides tips on what you can do to prevent the flu in the kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom (e.g. flu-fighting foods, natural disinfectant and antibacterial wipes, one-use paper towels and bedding).

    Encore Episode: Medication Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make

    Encore Episode: Medication Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make

    Taking shortcuts in the OTC aisle can be a health hazard.Over-the-counter drugs are an easy way to self-medicate when you need fast relief from some of life’s most common health obstacles. Research shows that 81 percent of adults use OTC medicines as a first response to minor ailments and seven in ten parents have given their children OTC medicines late at night to help aid sudden medical symptoms according to Consumer Healthcare Products Association. However taking shortcuts in the OTC aisle can be a health hazard. The perceived safety net vibe OTC medications emit by being readily accessible to anyone on a store shelf without a prescription is the reason why many people tend to overuse them for a wide range of ailments including cold and flu, pain, fever, heartburn, allergies and insomnia. With more than 300,000 OTC products on the market, the mistakes that can be made are high and so are the stakes for your health if misuse happens frequently. Dr. Amy Shah, a double-board certified physician in internal medicine and allergy immunology, says the main problem with OTC medications is that most people do not take the time to thoroughly read the ingredient labels or strictly follow directions. Over-medicating with OTC’s, especially over long periods of time, can be particularly dangerous.   Listen as Dr. Shah joins Dr. Bond to discuss the medication mistakes you don't want to make.

    Many of us are caught up in a vicious cycle of stimulation with caffeine and sugar and sedation with drugs and alcohol. How can it be broken?More than 80% of the patients Dr. Elson Haas treats are using caffeine and sugar as energy stimulants in the day and/or alcohol and other substances at night to calm and rest. When we don’t do that in balance, we disrupt our natural energy flow and get into a vicious cycle of needing to stimulate our body every day, to whip it into action, and then slow it down in the evening. Dr. Haas has named this the Stimulation-Sedation Cycle. Listen as he joins Dr. Bond to discuss the long-term health hazards that can happen if we keep stimulating and sedating ourselves in this manner, as well as simple steps to overcome this vicious cycle.

    While some view MS as a "disability," David Lyons knows a diagnosis is not a sentence to be bound to a wheelchair.Multiple sclerosis (MS) takes different forms and is categorized into four different types.  While some view this condition as a "disability," but David Lyons knows an MS diagnosis is not a sentence to be bound to a wheelchair.  Diagnosed at age 47, David went through a period of darkness and doubt about his future. He lost the muscle mass he'd worked so hard to build in his many years in the gym. Ultimately, he decided that was not the future he wanted to live. Now, he's helping others with MS and other conditions to meet their fitness and lifestyle goals. In his book, Everyday Health and Fitness with Multiple Sclerosis: Achieve Your Peak Physical Wellness While Working with Limited Mobility, David provides solutions for overcoming mental hurdles, nutrition fundamentals to properly fuel workouts, easily adaptable exercises, and motivation. As Amazon describes it, the book is a "road map for every person who wants to conquer a disease or disability, and just get moving." David also co-founded the MS Fitness Challenge (MSFC) with his wife Kendra in order to help others with MS. Listen as David joins Dr. Bond to share his own journey through MS and the great work the MSFC is doing.
