    Here's a medical fact: The hungrier you are, the more likely it is that you're going to go on a feeding frenzy and gnaw on any candy, chips, and hunks of fat-laden pork products in your sight. And the more you gorge, the more likely it is that your body shape is going to change -- for the larger. Tha...Read More

    To eat less sugar, try these food substitutions:

    Culprit: sugar
    • Food substitution: stevia One teaspoon of sugar is equal to a 4gram serving. Try stevia, a natural sweetener; it is 15 times sweeter than sugar, but does not cause a sugar spike (and crash). Because it is so sweet, you're likely

    3. Bobbi_Jo Drew I took care of my father for two years during his cancer treatments until his death in 2011. 3 months later my mothers kidney failure became worse and complications arose to where I started taking of her full time and she now lives me. ( Dads treatments were before the new health care changes. Now with all of moms issues I am between her PCP, Wound Care on and off, Two hospitals multiple surgeries and rehab. I have to say that although I applaud the intent, I am less than impressed with how it has actually impacted the day to day functions of the hospitals and staff and how it affects the quality of care my mother is receiving. This is getting long winded so I will list a few of the major concerns I have had.

    4. Bobbi_Jo Drew I accidently posted it before I finished :( Since the Hospitals are being forced to install a new computer system the ones I have had to take mom to have managed to do the following as a result of what I assume is a lack of training and time to become accustomed to the new system. Along with the lack of common sense, being under staffed and simply being neglectful these hospitals have managed to admit my mom as someone else with a similar name ( she was in the room in bed before this was discovered ) Accidently doubled the dose on her fentanyl patch, not give her 2 of her must have daily medications for almost a week straight. After I went over each medication 1 by 1 they messed up her medication list 4 TIMES IN A ROW! ( PCP office ) Discharged her with no discharge instructions or doctors signature on the new medications she had to take. There is so much more its pathetic. What I am trying to say is that there is a long way to go and a lot more changes that need to be made besides forcing people to have health insurance. Since just one medication costs almost $ 800.00 a month. Has it occur to anyone that if the caps were put on how much pharmaceutical companies charged for medications and caps were placed on every procedure for medical AND DENTAL procedures that most everyone would go on a regular basis when needed and not wait till it was more of a health issue? I am just one person with my own frustrations with the health care system. I doubt you ( DR. Oz ) will ever read this but on the off chance that you do, I think what you are doing and how you are helping people is amazing. Thank you!
