Objective personality tests, such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), might be more sensitive to reflect subclinical personality and be more state-dependent in an individuals lifetime, so they are good scales to predict the psychological distress regarding certain states. The aim of this study was to identify the specific pattern between body mass index (BMI) and psychological distress using the objective personality test. For this study, we investigated BMI and the Korean Military Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MPI). A retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted with 19-yr-old examinees who were admitted to the Military Manpower Administration in Korea from February 2007 to January 2010. Of 1,088,107 examinees, we enrolled 771,408 subjects who were psychologically apparent healthy possible-military-service groups. Afterwards, we reviewed and analyzed directly measured BMI and MPI results. In terms of the validity scales, the faking-good subscale showed an ...

Sixteen developers vying to develop Presidio's dormant Public Health Service Hospital complex - SFGate
SIXTEEN DEVELOPERS or institutions have shown interest in a 36-acre section of the Presidio of San Francisco that abuts the Richmond District, home to a large, active and influential neighborhood association that will oppose any plan deemed too dense and too busy. Seven of the 16 preliminary proposals that were solicited by the Presidio Trust, managers of the former Army bases transformation into a self-sustaining national park, suggest assisted living centers for seniors. In all probability the historic 1932 building will be used by a developer, but two seven-story wings that were added in 1952 and are not regarded as historic will be razed, said Jim Meadows, the trusts executive director. Whatever rises on the site will occupy space that is, at the least, unusual. Because of hilly topography and the Presidios own limited road system, it is somewhat isolated and difficult to get to from within the Presidio, said Ron Miguel, PAR president. Even when it was the Marine ...

The Nebraska Diagnostic and Evaluation Center (D&E) is a maximum custody, reception, diagnostic, evaluation, assessment, classification and assignment facility for the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS). Located in Lincoln, Nebraska, D&E was established by the Nebraska State Legislature in 1976 as part of Legislative Bill 984. Construction was completed in June 1979 and the new institution was opened in August 1979 as a 176-bed facility. As provided by State Statute, all adult males sentenced to the NDCS by the County and District Courts of the State of Nebraska are received into the correctional system at the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center. In addition, the institution houses ninety-day evaluators sentenced by the court for assessment, county safe keepers, interstate transfers and returned parolees and escapees. Initially the facility was set-up to handle one inmate per bed (176 inmates), but overcrowding has forced the prison to add beds to the single ...

A limited number of patients admitted to psychiatric acute wards or Psychiatric Intensive Care Units are admitted with a fluctuating array of psychiatric symptoms including brief depressive episodes. These patients do not fit into the present diagnostic systems due to short duration of affective symptoms and the fluctuating arrays of other symptoms. Case histories indicate that these patients have psychiatric conditions due to epilepsy or organic brain dysfunctions.. In the study acutely admitted patients filling criteria for two recent DSM-4 axis 1 diagnoses (one is a brief depressive period) during the last two weeks are compared to age- and sex-matched patients acutely admitted with a major depressive disorder. The patients are rated with a number of rating scales at admittance, day 5, after two weeks and three months. EEG and QEEG are taken three times the first week. MRI, drug screening and blood screening of medication-concentrations are taken. ...

Rehospitalization rate after continued electroconvulsive therapy-A retrospective chart review of patients with severe depression
Background: Electroconvulsive therapy, ECT, is an effective acute treatment for severe depression. Today ECT is usually discontinued when the patients depressive symptoms abate, although relapse is common. Some studies suggest that continuation ECT (cECT) may prevent relapse of depression, but there are few studies available. Aims: The aim of this study was to describe the need for inpatient care before, during and after cECT. Methods: A retrospective chart. review was conducted of all patients (n=27) treated with cECT between 2005 and 2007 at Orebro University Hospital, Sweden. All patients were severely depressed at the initiation of index ECT. The DSM-IV diagnoses were major depression (n=19), bipolar depression (n=5) or schizoaffective depression (n=3). Results: The hospital day quotient was lower (HDQ=15) during cECT (mean duration+/-standard deviation=104+/-74 days) than during the 3 years prior to cECT (HDQ=26). The rehospitalization ...
APTA has posted summaries of recent notices from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that update the payment rate used under the prospective payment system (PPS) for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and for inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) for fiscal year 2013. The notices are effective October 1, 2012. Neither notice contains any substantive policy changes, and so there is no comment period for them.. For the SNF PPS, the overall economic impact of the payment update is an estimated $670 million in increased payments to SNFs during fiscal year 2013. The market basket increase factor is 2.5%, which is reduced by a 0.7% multi-factor productivity adjustment. The result is a payment percentage update of 1.8% for the year. The SNF summary is available to APTA members on the Medicare Payment and Policies for Skilled Nursing Facilities webpage under the "APTA Summaries" heading.. For the IRF PPS, the update provides a ...

Have you ever wondered why some places offer surgeries, such as spay or neuter, for under $100 and other places you feel like youre paying an arm and a leg? There are several reasons why there is such a difference in pricing which is important to understand when choosing where to have the procedure for your pet.. Low cost clinics are able to offer extremely affordable prices compared to full service hospitals. It does not mean low cost provides substandard care and it doesnt mean full service are over charging to profit. Understanding the differences between the two can help put in perspective why pricing is so different. They might be performing the "same" surgery, but the overall process and procedures are not the same. Low cost clinics exist to help keep the pet population under control by offering services to spay and neuter at affordable pricing. They are a great option for many scenarios like foster pets, shelter animals, the ...

Studies of premenopausal (6) and postmenopausal (7) women have correlated serum estradiol levels with increased endometrial thickness. To validate transvaginal ultrasound measurement of endometrial thickness as a surrogate marker of estrogen status, we examined the association between endometrial thickness and other factors, including some factors known to be associated with estrogen status in postmenopausal women. In postmenopausal women undergoing screening transvaginal ultrasound for early detection of ovarian cancer, we observed a strong and consistent association between endometrial thickness and factors reflecting exogenous (current HRT use) and endogenous (BMI) estrogen exposure. Other studies have described similar associations involving endometrial thickness, HRT use, and BMI (7-11). In postmenopausal women not receiving HRT, serum estrogen concentrations increase with body weight (12) due to peripheral aromatization of ovarian and adrenal androgens in adipose tissue (13, 14). In women ...
Hospital Readmission Roundup: Penalties Start Oct. 1, Perspectives and Considerations for SNFs - CaringForward
Lots of news and analysis this week about Medicare reimbursement penalties for patient readmissions and the implications for SNFs and hospitals. Starting Oct. 1, about 2,000 hospitals will face tiered reimbursement penalties for readmitting too many patients with heart attacks, pneumonia and chronic heart failure. As a reminder of the challenge, we see that the best hospitals readmit 19 percent to 20 percent of heart failure patients within 30 days. As the McKnights article observes, strong collaborative relationships and communication between SNFs and hospitals are more important than ever. Also, here is some solid analysis regarding variables that can unfairly...
Mental Health Status of Prisoners in Jail It is recognized that one of the major issues in jail management is responding to the needs of a growing number of inmates with mental health problems. The purpose of this study was to assess the nature and severity of mental health problems among inmate population. The mental health status of 1,500 (1,337 responded) inmates of the 30 prisons located in nationwide area was examined using Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). And the scores on MMPI were examined in relation to some offender characteristics such as type of offence, treatment classification, frequence of discipline. The result indicates that the percentage of inmate population with scores over 70 on every sub-categories of the scale is higher than that of general populations reflecting high rate of deviation from average normal mental health. It seems likely that many of inmates are in need of specific mental health treatment services. The nature and ...

All contain an estrogen, ethinylestradiol or mestranol, in varying amounts, and one of a number of different progestogens. (Regarding the estrogen, the inactive 3-methyl ether of ethinylestradiol, which must be metabolized by the liver into the active ethinylestradiol; 50 µg of mestranol is equivalent to only 35 µg of ethinylestradiol and should not be used when high-dose [50 µg ethinylestradiol] estrogen pills are needed; mestranol was the estrogen used in the first oral contraceptive, Enovid). They are usually taken for 21 days with then a seven-day gap during which a withdrawal bleed (often, but incorrectly, referred to as a menstrual period) occurs. These differ in the amount of estrogen given, and whether they are monophasic (the same dose of estrogen and progestogen during each of the 21 days) or multiphasic (varying doses). The introduction of extended-cycle monophasic pills (i.e. Seasonale) has shown that the withdrawal bleeding intervals can be decreased. ...
Rates of depression and anxiety among young people in America have been increasing steadily for the past 50 to 70 years. Today, by at least some estimates, five to eight times as many high school and college students meet the criteria for diagnosis of major depression and/or anxiety disorder as was true half a century or more ago. This increased psychopathology is not the result of changed diagnostic criteria; it holds even when the measures and criteria are constant. article continues after advertisement The most recent evidence for the sharp generational rise in young peoples depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders comes from a just-released study headed by Jean Twenge at San Diego State University. Twenge and her colleagues took advantage of the fact that the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), a questionnaire used to assess a variety of mental disorders, has been given to large samples of college students throughout the United States going as far back as 1938, and ...

From August 2015 to August 2016, among psychiatric out patients seeking treatment at the Department of Psychiatry at a major teaching medical hospital in Seoul, Korea, 169 patients who had never been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder, including schizophrenia spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, and/or depressive disorder with psychotic features, completed the Korean Childhood Trauma Questionnaire, the Korean version of the Impact of Event Scale-Revised, the modified Korean version of the Peritraumatic Dissociation Experiences Questionnaire, and the Korean Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2 ...
Bipolar Disorder - symptoms, average, Definition, Description, Demographics, Causes and symptoms, Diagnosis
Bipolar disorder usually is diagnosed and treated by a psychiatrist and/or a psychologist. In addition to an interview with the child and her parents, several clinical inventories or scales may be used to assess the patients mental status and determine the presence of bipolar symptoms. These include the Childrens Global Assessment Scale (C-GAS), General Behavior Inventory (GBI), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory Adolescent (MMPI-A), the Youth Inventory (YI-4), and the Young Mania Rating Scale (YMRS). The tests are verbal and/or written and are administered in both hospital and outpatient settings. Bipolar symptoms often present differently in children and adolescents. Manic episodes in these age groups are typically characterized by more psychotic features than in adults, which may lead to a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia. Children and adolescents also tend to demonstrate irritability and aggressiveness instead of the elation of mania in adults. ...
Xenobiotics is a term for chemicals in the body that are not naturally present in the body). Summary: One hundred and three individuals undergoing detoxification with Hubbards procedure volunteered to undergo additional physical and psychological tests concomitant with the program. Participants had been exposed to recreational (abused) and medical drugs, patent medicines, occupational and environmental chemicals. Patients with high blood pressure had a mean reduction of 30.8 mm systolic, 23.3 mm diastolic; cholesterol level mean reduction was 19.5 mg/ 100 ml, while triglycerides did not change. Completion of the detoxification program also resulted in improvements in psychological test scores, with a mean increase in Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale IQ of 6.7 points. Scores on Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory profiles decreased on Scales (4-7) where high scores are associated with amoral and asocial personalities, psychopathic behavior and paranoia.

Optic neuromyelitis syndrome in Brazilian patients | Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
Recurrences of bouts of neurological dysfunction have almost invariably been ascribed to MS but such events also can be seen in recurrent (RDEM) and multiphasic disseminated encephalomyelitis (MDEM).6 In RDEM the first, acute bout is followed by one or more episodes that reproduce all or some of the symptoms of the original episode; this symptomatic stereotype that is quite rare in MS, can be seen in some cases of RONM.6 Our case 7 is a good illustration of this type of illness: a 55 year old Afro-Brazilian woman was treated with praziquantel for cerebral cysticercosis one year before the onset of RONM. She developed a subacute episode of TM at the T4 level and partial bilateral visual loss, with complete remission after corticotherapy. This first episode was then followed by seven episodes in the subsequent eight years, each one reproducing all or some of the symptoms of the original attack, mimicking the description of RDEM.6 Brain MRI revealed only one small periventricular lesion (Paty IV). ...

This is a good case of mine, hes a 68 year old male. He has alcohol cirrhosis and esophageal varices, hes not a prisoner. But he doesnt speak English, so just putting that out there. Hes a child Pugh A5, he had a total bilirubin of 0.7 his AFP was 43 so not indicative, and his ECOG was 0-1 when he saw me for the first time in clinic and this is what his initial CT scan showed, to from my clinic, he had not been followed up appropriately and just came in with a belly ache and they noted this very large mast in his right hepatic lobe. Further down you can see that the tumor extends more inferiority and you are getting a very avid enhancement of the portal vein and you can see theres some portal vein thrombosis in there. So the arrow is really pointing at what I was reading as an arterial portal shunt. So knowing that this is what you are going to face ahead of time sort of can help you plan. So arterial portal shunting diagnosis can very often be made on multiphasic CT scans so you know Im ...

Modelling maternal obesity: the effects of a chronic high-fat, high-cholesterol diet on uterine expression of contractile...
Chronic feeding of a HFHC diet before and during pregnancy in the rat mirrored changes often associated with maternal obesity in women. These include a significant increase in body fat mass and circulating levels of total cholesterol [15-17]. Increasing body mass index can significantly depress human uterine contractility ex vivo  and cholesterol has been shown to play a key role in uterine contractile activity, as it causes significant utero-relaxant effects on both human and rat myometrium [19,20]. What was evident from the current study was that uterine tissue from control animals at both TNL and TL displayed regular biphasic plateau contractions with synchronized contraction and relaxation of uterine smooth muscle bundles . In contrast, uterine tissue from HFHC-fed animals displayed a spike bundle contraction phenotype. Spike bundle contractions are multiphasic, resulting from asynchronous contraction and relaxation of uterine smooth muscle bundles . This ex vivo contractility ...

DailyMed - RELISTOR- methylnaltrexone bromide tablet RELISTOR- methylnaltrexone bromide injection, solution
Distribution The steady-state volume of distribution (Vss) of methylnaltrexone is approximately 1.1 L/kg. The fraction of methylnaltrexone bound to human plasma proteins is 11% to 15%, as determined by equilibrium dialysis. Elimination Following oral administration of a single 450 mg dose of RELISTOR tablets, concentrations of methylnaltrexone declined in multiphasic manner with a terminal half-life (t1/2) of approximately 15 hours.. Metabolism In an intravenous mass balance study, approximately 44% of the administered radioactivity was recovered in the urine over 24 hours with 5 distinct metabolites. None of the detected metabolites was in amounts over 6% of administered radioactivity. Conversion to methyl-6-naltrexol isomers (5% of total) and methylnaltrexone sulfate (1% of total) appear to be the primary pathways of metabolism.

Does levodopa alter depression and psychopathology in Parkinsonism patients? | Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
Twenty-seven Parkinsonism patients and 31 controls, matched for age and verbal IQ, were tested on an objectively scored personality test (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) at the beginning of the patients levodopa therapy and three months later. Patients, but not the controls, were retested after 15 months of levodopa treatment. The patients, all of whom were intact intellectually, obtained MMPI scores indicating moderate depression before beginning levodopa treatment. There was no test evidence to indicate that levodopa significantly increased or decreased the amount of depression in the patients after three or 15 months of levodopa. The patient group, however, significantly increased their Index of Psychopathology (Ip) score after 15 months of levodopa but not after three months.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Susceptibility of the MMPI-2-RF neurological complaints and cognitive complaints scales to over-reporting in simulated head injury. AU - Bolinger, Elizabeth. AU - Reese, Caitlin. AU - Suhr, Julie. AU - Larrabee, Glenn J.. PY - 2014/2/1. Y1 - 2014/2/1. N2 - We examined the effect of simulated head injury on scores on the Neurological Complaints (NUC) and Cognitive Complaints (COG) scales of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF). Young adults with a history of mild head injury were randomly assigned to simulate head injury or give their best effort on a battery of neuropsychological tests, including the MMPI-2-RF. Simulators who also showed poor effort on performance validity tests (PVTs) were compared with controls who showed valid performance on PVTs. Results showed that both scales, but especially NUC, are elevated in individuals simulating head injury, with medium to large effect sizes. Although both scales were highly correlated with ...
Although the cAMP and phosphoinositide (PI) second messenger systems are involved in olfactory signal transduction, aspects of their roles remain unclear. We have further examined the rapid kinetics of cAMP fluctuations in response to odorants in rat olfactory cilia isolated by calcium shock. Odorants cause a rapid and transient subsecond elevation of cAMP levels, as well as a more sustained signal lasting 5-10 sec. Basal cAMP levels demonstrate a biphasic calcium dependence; calcium enhanced both adenylyl cyclase (AC) and phosphodiesterase (PDE) activities. The odorant-induced cAMP response also demonstrated a biphasic dependence on calcium, with peak activity at 10 microM free calcium. All odorants tested were found to stimulate cAMP accumulation, and the dose-response curves were multiphasic, with less stimulation seen at higher concentrations. Dose-response curves performed for isovaleric acid at two free calcium concentrations demonstrated that calcium can influence cellular responsiveness ...

Rehospitalization Rates Fell In First Year Of Medicare Penalties | National Minority Quality Forum a not-for-profit...
KHN: DECEMBER 9TH, 2013. During the first eight months of this year, fewer than 18 percent of Medicare patients ended up back in the hospital within a month of discharge, the lowest rate in years, the government reported Friday. This drop occurred during the first year that Medicare financially penalized hospitals for their readmission rates, and the government seized on the decrease as evidence the incentives are having an effect.. The government is targeting rehospitalizations as a significant indicator of gaps in medical quality in the nations hospitals. While some elderly patients inevitably return to the hospital, the government and some researchers believe many of those returns are avoidable if hospitals monitor patients after their release to ensure they get appropriate medications and follow-up visits with doctors.

The Institute of Medicine's geographic variation in health spending report | The Incidental Economist
I do not have hard evidence for what follows, aside from my experience consulting in the sector and listening in on MedPAC discussions. But here goes. Skinner and Fisher say that you should focus on the whole continuum of hospital and post-hospital care. The IOM report, they feel, focuses too much on post-acute care. Skinner and Fisher may be right, but post-acute care deserves a lot of scrutiny on its own.. The most common modalities for PAC are home health care, where a therapist or a nurse comes to your home, or skilled nursing facility care, where you stay in a nursing facility. In SNFs, you probably get more intensive rehabilitation services (so do not confuse them with long-stay, "custodial" care for older adults w disabilities who cant support themselves at home). Qualitatively, the ...
New in the Literature: Postacute Care Site on Stroke Outcomes (Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2013;94(4):622-629.)
Patients with stroke may make more functional gains if their postacute care includes treatment received at an inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF), say authors of an article published this month in Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This finding may have important implications as postacute care delivery is reshaped through health care reform, they add. Researchers conducted this prospective cohort study at 4 northern California hospitals that are part of a single health maintenance organization. They enrolled patients with stroke (N=222) between February 2008 and July 2010.. Baseline and 6-month assessments were performed using the Activity Measure for Post Acute Care (AM-PAC), a test of self-reported function in 3 domains: basic mobility, daily activities, and applied cognition.. Of the 222 patients analyzed, 36% went home with no treatment, 22% received home ...
mHealth Intelligence, January 9, 2018. Skilled nursing facilities across the country are using telemedicine to bring critical healthcare services to their residents, improving health and wellness outcomes and reducing costly ER transports.. In many cases, real-time clinical support can mean the difference between life and death.. "Even five minutes at that point can make a huge difference," says Karen Sullivan, communications director at Tewksbury, Mass.-based Covenant Health, which has partnered with TripleCare to install a round-the-clock telemedicine platform in four SNFs around New England. "These are critical minutes in a lot of cases for patients who are compromised.". Read more!. ...
After the project was approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University at Buffalo, data from IRFs and rehabilitation SNFs for calendar years 1996 and 1997 were obtained from the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a national rehabilitation outcomes measurement system. The study facilities comprise a self-selected group that voluntarily subscribed to UDSMR in order to benchmark their performance relative to their peers. The SNFs in this study are likely more committed to rehabilitation than nonparticipating SNFs. UDSMRs patient records include sociodemographic, diagnostic, stay and admission and discharge functional assessment data. Functional assessment data were the 13 motor and 5 cognitive items that comprise the FIM instrument. Each item is rated on a 7-level scale with "7" signifying Complete Independence, and "1" indicating Total Assistance.10 UDSMR patient records were selected if the primary payer was Medicare (nonmanaged care) and the ...

Geographical clustering of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in South-East England: a population study. - Wellcome Centre for...
BACKGROUND: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative disease of motor neurons that causes progressive paralysis and eventually results in death from respiratory failure. Environmental factors that trigger ALS might result in a pattern of geographical clustering of cases. We tested this hypothesis using the South-East England ALS population register, which covers south-east London, Kent and parts of neighbouring counties. METHODS: The registers catchment area was divided into postcode districts and sectors. The expected rates of ALS (adjusted for age and sex) were compared with the observed rates using a standardised residuals method and the SaTScan programme. RESULTS: There were 406 cases of ALS identified in the catchment area during the study period. Four of the 126 postcode districts, all in Greater London, had residuals |2.5 SDs from the mean. Similarly, there were 15 postcode sectors (out of 420) that had residuals |1.96 SDs from the mean. Nine of these were in Greater London. SaTScan

64-Slice computed tomography angiography in the diagnosis and assessment of coronary artery disease: systematic review and meta...
We did not identify any other published systematic reviews focusing on 64-slice CT. Several systematic reviews of MSCT5 6 53-55 included 64-slice CT studies, all of which are included in our review. A systematic review by Stein and colleagues5 of multidetector (four-slice and higher) CT for the diagnosis of CAD identified one 64-slice CT study by Leschka and colleagues.19 The authors concluded that the preliminary data with 64-slice CT suggested that it was more sensitive and specific than 16-slice CT, and that multidetector CT had the potential to be used as a screening test in appropriate patients. The USA Technology Evaluation Center6 (a subsidiary of the private providers Blue Cross and Blue Shield), in a review of CT angiography (32-slice or higher) identified six 64-slice CT studies.18 19 21 26 27 30 The authors reported that in patient-based analysis the 64-slice CT studies showed high sensitivities and specificities compared with the reference standard of conventional coronary ...

Henderson, of Stanford, led a new study of 643 women that found declining estrogen levels post-menopause are unrelated to memory changes. But women close to menopause who had higher levels of the hormone progesterone in their bloodstream were more likely to have good memory and thinking skills, according to the study, published online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Henderson says more research is needed before he would recommend that middle-aged women take progesterone to boost their memory.. ...

Instead of nesting them and making multiple posts, Ill italicize them and post once.. We dont know whether the laws of nature just happened on their own or if they had an intelligent architect. Anyone who chooses to believe an architect is not necessary can do so, but his view is not based on knowledge. Its based on assumption. No, its based on all the available data about consciousness. In every known example, consciousness arises from the organic brain. Theism posits a conscious entity predating matter. Not only is there no evidence for that, it contradicts everything we know about what consciousness is and where it comes from.. Man is an intelligent architect using the building blocks of life that already exist. We dont know where the building blocks of life came from and how they were put together at ...

A new study, recently reported in the journal Circulation, gleaned its data through the famed Nurses Health Study, which has examined the health of a large group of young and middle-age women spanning an 18-year period. In this study, womens diets were analyzed and correlated to the number of reported heart attacks. The data found that women who ate the most blueberries and strawberries were 32 percent less likely to have heart attacks than their peers. This number remained high even when the berry eaters were compared to women who otherwise ate copious amounts of fruits and vegetables ...
New Kid on the Block. Well, Im not sure how new, but it was to me 6 months ago when I heard about Functional Medicine (FM) on a doc call-in program originating in Santa Cruz, Calif. The doc often presents a plurality of approaches to the callers problems, most of whom call because they seek self-help methods, supplements, or other short-cuts to help, or who share the utopian dream/meme of sectarian health claims through rearranging implausible ideas on the deck of the good ship Nature. (There could be a mixed metaphor in there somewhere but I go on…). The radio call-in host, a middle-age sounding woman with a holistically oriented practice in a nearby town seems quite intelligent, grounded in real physiology, biochemistry, and mechanics of the body. I sometimes can catch her in errors but not as often as one could a more typical quacky doc, such as a chelationist.
