Fitbook seems to work

We have fitbooks in our clinic. And we hear from many of our patients that they prefer the apps on their phone, but here’s a story about one fitbook user who found it really does change things up when you write things down.

I know from apps I have on my phone that it’s easy to ignore the little icon. Appears I’m not the only one who finds actually writing something down has an impact. Will this continue to be true for future generations, I don’t know. I do know that writing works. Which is why we still have those fitbooks in our clinic.

Beginning the Conversation About Water

More to come on this subject as more nephrologists and urologist (kidney and urinary tracts doctors) start to weigh in on the water trend. But baby steps for now. Here’s a quick excerpt from the June 2013 AARP Bulletin:

“Q: Do I really need to drink eight glasses of water a day to stay healthy? I just can’t seem the drink that much water! A: No. There’s no scientific evidence to support this often repeated advice. The Institution of Medicine’s Food and Nutrition Board, which develops dietary guidelines, concluded that most healthy people can meet their need for water by letting thirst be their guide. You can get fluids from a variety of sources including fruits, vegetables, juice, milk, coffee, soda and even beer. But if you’re over 65, you exercise strenuously, you live in a hot climate or you find yourself sweltering in the middle of a heat wave, try to drink extra fluids – Nissa Simon”

Big THANK YOU to . . .

Dr. Ourfalian

My amazing neighbour. He found my husband’s wallet and got it back to him today – before we even knew it was missing.

Dr O has been my upstairs neighbour since I arrived at 18455 Burbank and the whole time he’s been a gem. I run into him (not literally) in the parking lot from time to time and he’s got great energy. I’ve even referred some patients to him, although I don’t think anyone has taken me up on the referral.

Based on his great energy and his glowing Yelps, if you need a dentist I’d suggest you check out Dr O – and if you lose your wallet you hope he’ll find it for you!

Thanks for being there for us neighbour, you’re the best!
