Being a doctor means being an advocate for good health. As an Emergency Medicine physician, I care for multiple patients with a variety of complaints, everyday. Whether I’m evaluating a patient with chest pain, high blood pressure, anxiety, or who is pregnant, I counsel them all about important lifestyle factors that I believe can help prevent worsening of current or future disease risk. One of the most important of these lifestyle factors is regular exercise. It is well known that regular aerobic activity can increase energy level, improve mood, and decrease risk for many medical conditions. Despite knowing this association…

To cleanse, or not to cleanse?

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Let me start by saying that I don’t regularly do cleanses. My job is stressful; I work long hours, and I HAVE to eat, in order to make it through a shift in the Emergency Department. When I learned about this new Rejuvenation Cleanse, I was excited because it wasn’t just juice… it was soups and a small snack as well. Now that’s more like it! Not to mention, I could always use a post-holiday diet clean up! So I decided to try the cleanse, instead of cookies! projectjuice.com As a medical professional, I live by the motto, “everything in…

Travel Must-Haves

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Let’s talk travel must-haves, Dr. Majestic style. Whether I’m traveling locally or international, I always try to stay prepared.

My favorite vacation spot includes a beach, pretty much any beach! With the beach hopefully comes sun, and with sun comes the risk for skin cancer and wrinkles/aging. Who is a fan of skin cancer or aging? That’s right… no one. I carry along a plethora of sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 35, even higher…

Healthy living in medical school

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Medical school may set you up for a successful living in the future, but let’s be honest; it doesn’t set you up for healthy living in the “now”. For all you medical students out there, I know you know where I’m coming from. From class to class, hours upon hours of studying, quick and easy dinners, short workouts (if any), and sleepless nights cramming for that next test; medical school can prove to support a very unhealthy lifestyle. So what can you do about it? A lot! But it takes a conscious decision to make time for YOU, on a…

Extracurricular Activities for the Undergraduate

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

No one expects you to go to college and not have any fun! Sure, it’s about education in the end, but life itself is all about balance and college is YOUR time to do YOU! I spent a great deal of my time in college having fun, and I would not trade it for anything. College is all about investigating who you are as an individual, and figuring out what you love and want to do for the rest of your life. Trust me when I say, it is NOT all about studying, all of the time. Most pre-med students…
