The "Going Red for Women" campaign will flourish in February with women sporting their red dresses in support of heart health month, but are women really getting the prevention message? Young women pursuing a career and raising a family are most at risk as they often put off medical care not realizing they are a candidate for a heart attack or stroke.
According to a recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, young women who've had a heart attack will have a twenty fold increased risk of a second heart attack, and a tripled risk of a first stroke, according to findings. Two more recent studies published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology confirm that women under the age of 55 are often left in the dark when it comes to knowing the risk factors of heart disease.
"When it comes to heart health, women have different warning signs and nutritional needs," says Dana Cohen, M.D., a nationally renowned internal and integrative medicine specialist whose multi-disciplinary approach has helped treat thousands of patients using a variety of conventional and complementary therapies. www.drdanacohen.com/
Joel Sanders is a unique holistic dentist in Highland Park, Illinois, whose wide following of patients appreciate the fact that he goes beyond just restoring teeth. He cares about each person's total health.
After graduating from Northwestern University Dental School in 1979, Joel began practicing traditional dentistry for several years. During a dental seminar, Joel met one of the early practitioners and researchers of holistic & biologic dentistry, Dr. Doug Cook, and that relationship influenced him to radically change his approach for dental care. Using all-natural products like metal-free resins and porcelain instead of traditional metallic fillings is just one example.
Joel made it his mission to educate patients on the importance of keeping their mouth healthy.
"It's important for people to know that there is a huge connection between the mouth and the whole body. Everything works together."
Courtney Amundson - Joining us is a remarkable young woman Courtney Amundson, author of "Teachings From God." From "the mouths of babes" comes to mind as this 19 year old shares wisdom for the ages. Sometimes, but definitely not always, as we are each presented with different challenges to benefit our own personal growth. Many times being spiritual does not always mean we are healthier, but does help in our own overall balance in life.
I could not draw any conclusions, only my own experience...but for me being spiritual means that I have more courage to surrender and not play victim to what I see showing up physically as I know it is a manifestation of something larger to look at.
But sometimes that is a long road of discovery – and sometimes you don't figure it out in one lifetime.
Dr. Don Matsumoto - Glaucoma in the Baby Boomer Population - It is often called the "silent thief of sight." We're talking about glaucoma – a serious eye disease and the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the world. It's estimated glaucoma affects 3 million Americans but only half know they have it. That's because there aren't any symptoms and the only way to know you have it is to have an eye exam. Dr. Don Matsumoto joins Mark for a look at eye care for those over the age of 50.
There are two types of glaucoma – open angle and acute angle-closure. Open-angle doesn't have any symptoms until permanent vision loss has occurred. Symptoms in the late stages of the disease include gradual loss of peripheral vision, blank spots in your field of vision and tunnel vision.
Angle-closure glaucoma is rare and develops very quickly. Symptoms include eye pain, nausea and vomiting (accompanying the severe eye pain), blurred vision and headaches.
Regular eye exams are the key to detecting glaucoma and the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends a comprehensive eye exam for all adults starting at age 40.
One interesting fact is that glaucoma is an increasing diagnosis among baby boomers and can largely be attributed to LASIK surgery. Baby boomers were the first ones to take advantage of refractive surgery procedures such as LASKIK. After LASIK, patients see great, so most only see their eye doctor if they are in pain or if their quality of vision declines. However, as we mentioned, there aren't any symptoms of glaucoma so some could have a false belief that their eyes are fine.
Glaucoma affects all nationalities and all people as they age. Without having regular comprehensive eye exams, the baby boomer generation is not being checked adequately for glaucoma.
Dr. Don Matsumoto's best recommendation – no matter what your age and even if you think you can see fine -- don't forget about your regular eye examination!
