There is an abundant -- and ever-growing -- body of evidence that indicates sleep plays an important role in cardiovascular health.
The thing saw on Wide World of Sports became an absolute obsession: Evel Knievel. He made such a strong impact on me, that it would be an injustice to give him such brief attention. He will be the focus of an upcoming post. I can sum it up this way: some called him courageous, some called him an idiot; all questioned his sanity. I called him hero.
The fact of a heart attack became a reality when I was told by the emergency room on-call cardiologist that I couldn't wait for family to arrive to the hospital for support. "There's no time to lose." He needed to perform a heart catheterization procedure immediately.
Three months after recovering from my heart surgery, I ran my first 5k. My goal was to run the entire race and finish, and that I did.
My life is not "go, go, go" all the time like it was before. I rest more, eat better and take some time for myself. I think we all get used to doing too much and learn to ignore minor ailments or fatigue because that is what women are programmed to do.
After a visit to the emergency room, followed by an appointment with a cardiologist, my life would soon take an unexpected turn. I was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart defect that was causing my heart valve to leak severely and enlarged my heart twice the normal size.
Many unpatentable modalities in the realm of complementary and alternative medicine do not inspire huge and costly trials. We need such trials to know for sure what does and doesn't work. In the absence of them, we need to avoid a rush to judgment.
The story of what happened the night the family returned home from the hospital after Grandpa Joe's death is quite amazing.
What I think we could all do without is the constant Facebooking some pregnant women feel they need to partake in. The up-to-the-minute status updates; the unnecessary photos; the gory details. Sometimes, it's just too much.
Journalists will continue to speculate upon the back room dealings that went down between Twitter and NBC, but Adams doesn't regret his original action.
You can imagine, NBC, that I've been looking forward to watching the Women's Team Finals with my own daughter for a long time. But then you ruined it, NBC. You ruined it.
I still believe that if NBC gave the fans what they wanted rather than trying to make them do what NBC thinks it wants, NBC could win by growing audience and engagement and thus better serving sponsors. I ask you to imagine what Olympics coverage would look like if Google had acquired the rights.
A common misconception is that those with hypertension are excessively nervous or stressed out. In my practice, this is actually one of the most common questions that I am asked by a new patient.
Hard to imagine, but these seem to be popping up like dandelions. Not much left to do but sit back and enjoy. Plenty more in the recent book collec...
If we are prepared to acknowledge the widespread bullying to which both science and sense are subject at the hands of the almighty dollar, we might commit ourselves to the systematic effort of distinguishing the two.
Brian Mcknight, sit yo ass down! This attempted come back and "Adult Mixtape" was an epic fail! There isn't anything wrong with trying to re-invent your image or sound but this is just down right terrible.
