    Hidden health dangers of loneliness and isolation: Ep. 03

    Hidden health dangers of loneliness and isolation: Ep. 03

    In this episode, Dr. G is joined by Kate Johnson, MD, assistant professor and board-certified psychiatrist at Loyola University Medical Center, and Daryl Wilson, MD, board-certified emergency medicine physician at Edward-Elmhurst Health, to discuss the hidden health dangers of loneliness and isolation.


    Can feelings of loneliness lead to mental or physical health problems?


    Social connection is a basic human need and it’s important to explore its natural (sometimes complicated) link to good health. What people have experienced during the coronavirus pandemic has really underscored how much people need each other.


    Humans have an inherent need for meaningful human connection—it’s as important as food, water and shelter. Isolation can not only lead to mental illness such as depression, it can manifest in physical illness such as heart disease.


    Can isolation or loneliness lead to illness? What’s a healthy way to cope with loneliness? Fortunately, humans are resourceful. People can find creative ways to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation and maintain a healthy mind-body connection.

    “Shh, is it normal?" Health issues women avoid talking about - Ep. 02

    “Shh, is it normal?" Health issues women avoid talking about - Ep. 02

    In this episode, Dr. G is joined by Kimberley Darey, MD, board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, and Chief Medical Officer at Elmhurst Hospital in Elmhurst, IL; and Syeachia Dennis, MD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, and Community Medicine Curriculum Director at University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, to discuss health issues women would rather avoid talking about.


    Can women prevent breast cancer? How can you tell if you’re having a heart attack? If you’re pregnant, should you get the COVID-19 vaccine? Can you breastfeed if you’ve had a beer? When will the hot flashes END?


    It’s not weird to have questions about sex, aging or symptoms you’ve never felt before. Women have unique health needs but they’re often busy with family and career, and tend to skimp on personal wellness to focus on caring for others, so they don’t ask. Dr. G and his guests want women to feel empowered to be their own health advocate and ask their doctors those important questions.


    Women: invest in your health. Your family and loved ones depend on you, so the gift you give them is your own good health.

    The secret to healthy living – body, mind and spirit - Ep. 01

    The secret to healthy living – body, mind and spirit - Ep. 01

    In this episode, Dr. G is joined by Steven Lome, DO, double board-certified cardiovascular specialist, and Todd Fink, CADC, certified alcohol and drug counselor at Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, to discuss the fundamentals of healthy living.


    What is the secret of a healthy life? Good health has many facets, and they’re all important. Regular exercise, food choices, mindfulness and spirituality are just the tip of the iceberg. The first step to better health? Making the choice to start the transformation.


    But where (and how) to begin pursuit of a healthy lifestyle? Start small. No one can transform their health overnight, and that’s okay. It’s a lifelong process that involves failure, learning and commitment.


    How can we boost our immune system? How much exercise do we really need? How can we tell whether we’re stressed? Is spirituality the same as religion (and why is it relevant to health)? Dr. G’s experts tackle these questions and share some tips to help you set yourself up for success.


    Are you ready to transform your body, mind and spirit?


     


    Guests


    Steven Lome, DO - Double board-certified Cardiovascular Disease and Lifestyle Medicine Specialist, Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula.
