Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks…   Donna: Hi Dr Cabral! I was recently diagnosed with a renal AML of 1.3cms and focal nodular neoplasm on my liver was noticed on my ultrasound. I need to now do an MRI to further investigate. I can't find any archived podcasts on these issues. Some background info: I was on “Yas” birth control pill for 8 years from 14-22 years old, and in the last 2 years I took antibiotics 8 times for UTIs. I'm someone who normally NEVER takes medication. I eat well, don't drink or smoke, but I've undergone a lot of stress since becoming a mom 4 years ago and feel like it's been since that time that my health has started to deteriorate as I try to juggle motherhood with running my own growing business. I'll be running the big 5 labs in 2 weeks, as I'm convinced they will shed more light on my health. Any input from you would help! Will these tumors ever go away in your experience? Thank you so much, I value your consideration and time!   Maria: Hi Dr Cabral! I would love to hear your thoughts on lecithin as a supplement. Do you recommend it? If so, how does it support the body and what benefits are there? I've heard it connected to cognitive functions, nerves, skin, cholesterol etc. Could it be helpful for someone who has signs of dementia? What about when there's loss of sensitivity, tingling and numbness in lower parts of the legs and feet? Or is there anyone is particular that is at risk of being low in lecithin? Many many thanks for all you do, your podcast is like my encyclopedia on all health related matters.   Jesseca: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you so much for all of the education you share. I've learned so much from you and am so grateful to have resources like yours to empower myself and my family to live happy, healthy lives. I have two separate questions that I asked in the Facebook support group, and they don't appear to have been answered before: 1) What is your opinion on chemical peels and products like retinol as part of a regular skin care routine? As I understand it, both make your skin very sensitive to the sun (requiring very diligent SPF application), which raises some red flags for me. What do you think? 2) What is your opinion on using mushrooms like lions mane, chaga, and cordyceps while pregnant? I'm planning on getting pregnant in the next year and am thinking about how to replace my morning coffee. When I've decided to give up caffeine in the past, I found mushrooms like this (e.g. FourSigmatic's functional creamer) to work really well as an alternative. I know you recommend reducing herbs while pregnant. Would mushrooms like this fall in the same category? Thank you! Jesseca   Tina: You are amazing, and thanks for all you do! My 13-year-old son was just diagnosed with severe swelling in his sinuses, a deviated septum, and sinus polyps. I have him on daily omegas, daily activated mullti, periodic balanced zinc, daily probiotic, 3 HistPro 2 X per day, and I just ordered the alkalizing vitamin c (all Equilife products). I was forced to start him on Flonase, but I also have him on the nutribiotic GSE nasal spray. They want to do surgery, but they agreed to see if his nose improved after three months on the Flonase. So, three questions: 1-How much alkalizing vitamin c should he take? 2- Is it fine to keep him on all of these other things, and for how long? 3-Is there anything else I could be doing before this follow-up visit to help him so that his nose improves and they don't want to push us into the surgery? He's just over 100 pounds and very fit and active. He has all of the seasonal allergies and allergies to peanuts, tree-nuts, and sesame. I know it will take a while for you to answer, and I did ask on Facebook as well, but I know this will be an ongoing issue, so I wanted to get your opinion since I really value it.   Jackie: My practitioner has recommended the Candida and Bacterial Optimizer (CBO) protocol. He is not an expert on Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, however. He has noted that my good bacteria diversity is really low. I have been on antibiotics and antimicrobials for 10 months to combat my SIBO. So far, no luck. My hydrogen level remains elevated. My question is this. Is this particular protocol good to disrupt established and tough biofilms? Or is this protocol better for someone who would be using this protocol as a first round against SIBO? Has it ever been used with success on SIBO patients who had tough biofilms to break down? Finally, is there a reason why EDTA is not included in the biofilm buster formula?   Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, I have a question regarding earth probiotic strains like B.coagulus, B.clausii, B.subtilis. Lately, I have seen many products of these particular strains being used, especially in combination with botanicals and biofilm removers to help with SIBO. Is there any real evidence regarding soil based probiotics or you aren't convinced of their efficacy? With SIBO or in general?   Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral, in my last question I forgot to add that I work in a functional medicine clinic, where we analyse gut microbiom. We see very often low counts of akkermansia muciniphila, which is critical for healthy gut barrier. Soil based probiotics are suppose to indirectly increase akkermansia. Do you see any valuable evidence of that?   Thank you for tuning into this weekend's Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!   - - - Show Notes and Resources: StephenCabral.com/2487 - - - Get a FREE Copy of Dr. Cabral's Book: The Rain Barrel Effect - - - Join the Community & Get Your Questions Answered: CabralSupportGroup.com - - - Dr. Cabral's Most Popular At-Home Lab Tests: > Complete Minerals & Metals Test (Test for mineral imbalances & heavy metal toxicity) - - - > Complete Candida, Metabolic & Vitamins Test (Test for 75 biomarkers including yeast & bacterial gut overgrowth, as well as vitamin levels) - - - > Complete Stress, Mood & Metabolism Test (Discover your complete thyroid, adrenal, hormone, vitamin D & insulin levels) - - - > Complete Food Sensitivity Test (Find out your hidden food sensitivities) - - - > Complete Omega-3 & Inflammation Test (Discover your levels of inflammation related to your omega-6 to omega-3 levels) - - - Get Your Question Answered On An Upcoming HouseCall: StephenCabral.com/askcabral - - - Would You Take 30 Seconds To Rate & Review The Cabral Concept?

Did you know that the health of your vagina (I prefer to call her *yoni) has its own unique microbiome? In fact, your overall health impacts your vaginal ecology and vice versa, which creates a very important internal ecosystem. Vaginal health is so vital that it is considered a sixth vital sign. The Symptoms of a Disrupted Vaginal Microbiome: You experience chronic pelvic pain and infection, UTIs, vaginal itching and irritation, yeast, Gardnerella, Group B Strep infections, vulvovaginitis (overall inflammation and irritation of the vagina, the vulva, or both), or vaginal dryness. Painful sex. You have used antibiotics, singularly or chronically. Infertility issues (conception difficulties, implantation issues, and miscarriages).

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions:    Barbara: What is the best product to purchase to start getting healthy overall?   Nan: Hi Dr.Cabral, Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions! I have been using elimination diets to figure out what was causing my digestive and hormonal issues. I realized that i am very sensitive to lectins and salicylates. I do not want to stay on an elimination diet for too long to the detriment of my nutrition but have been unable to find good multivitamin and minerals and the Equilife ones do not ship to my country. I am therefore trying to diversify my diet however i can. I can now eat lectins foods that have been soaked and pressure cooked. I can also have a few histamine foods when i intermittent fast. However, i have been unable to reintroduce salicylates. I have been doing epsom salt baths and once in a while i can have a medium salicylate food but only like once a week. I have tested and I do not have any underlying digestive issues like SIBO or bacterial imbalance. What can i do to be able to reintroduce salicylates? Your episode on salicylates was incredibly insightful but i am unsure what to do after the low salicylate diet. How long do i have to stay on it? Ps: my mother has always had salicylate issues so maybe there is a genetic component behind my issue processing/detoxing salicylates? Looking forward to your input! Thank you so much!   Danny: Hi Dr. Carbral! I'm a 4th yr medical student and aspiring functional medicine doctor, I have learned so much from your podcast and love tuning in everyday! In short: I have 4 homozygous polymorphisms of COMT, for which (if I'm not mistaken) I should supplement hydroxy B12 and avoid methyl B12 & methyl folate. I also have a heterozygous polymorphism of MTHFR (C677T) for which I should take methyl B12 & methyl folate. It seems like what is therapeutic for one problem is toxic for the other and vice versa. Hence my question, what should I do? Will supplementing with both hydroxy and methyl B12 'counteract' each other like 2 horses running in opposite directions? I also recently did your organic acids test and had a follow up call with Caitlin, which was really helpful! On my OAT, my quinolinic/serotonin ratio was high (9.0), and we concluded that this was due to low serotonin (.08) as my quinolinic level was .72. I know MTHFR is involved in the synthesis of serotonin (via tryptophan), could the lower serotonin level be due to this MTHFR mutation? I know this is pretty detailed stuff but I'm hope there are other ppl out there with both COMT and MTHFR polymorphisms who have had similar questions. Really appreciate you taking time to do these house calls and for the awesome podcast! Best, Danny   Lorena: Working with a male client that is a Pitta and is 32. Saliva test showed normal DHEA, progesterone & testosterone as well as adrenal phase 3. However, his estrogen was significantly high. It's not from adipose tissue because he's quite fit. Pretty much plant-based (all organic) with the occasional grass-fed beef, no exposure to xenoestrogens as all cleaning products as well as personal products are 100% natural. Eats a lot of cruciferous veg everyday (this should have helped with estrogen detoxification). He does eat organic tofu twice a week so I wonder whether it would be that? I read somewhere that dietary intake wouldn't raise estrogen levels so much… I'm just so confused right now. He is prone to hair loss so not sure whether there's a conversion issue from testosterone to estrogen.   Vic: Hi Dr Cabral, First of all, love your work. I have had reoccurring UTIs for about 1.5 years. I have completed the CBO protocol, finisher and 2 x 7 day detoxes starting about a year ago which has helped with a lot of issues that I had found relief from no where else, so a big thank you for that. However I still have had to do your UTI protocol nearly constantly. I have relief when on the protocol but symptoms a few days after stopping. I was wondering if there were any long term detrimental effects of doing this protocol constantly or having this issue for so long? I have tried all the basic lifestyle tips and listened to your previous UTI podcasts but can't seem to find a story quite like mine. I don't take antibiotics anymore and have had countless confirmed culture tests that show an infection. Unfortunately I'm on a tight budget at the moment so most testing and treatment I cannot afford at this time, so any general advice would be greatly appreciated.

When I'm on service these days there is inevitably a moment when a resident says “Patient so-and-so is on X” - and I have absolutely no idea what X is.  Modern subspecialist practice advances at such a remarkably rapid pace, it can be hard to keep up. In this context, we're excited to hear from infectious disease experts and nephrologists about updates in the care of older adults.  Sonali Advani and Lona Mody talk about their recent JAGS article highlighting three recent articles that every clinician caring for older adults should be aware of in the treatment of infectious diseases (hint: I've never finished a course of antibiotics, and maybe your patients don't need that full course either).  Devika Nair and Rasheeda Hall talk about their JAGS article highlighting updates from nephrology in the care of older adults, including a link to this new eGFR calculator that does NOT include race.  We have a discussion about the decision to remove race, a social construct, from clinical risk calculators (though I'm not 100% sold that race should always be removed - if removal is likely to worsen disparities for example - at least until a superior race-blind calculator can be developed). These articles are part of a new series called Clin-Star Corner, a new series in JAGS that reviews practice changing articles in the care of older adults.  And yeah, they made me sing a Miley Cyrus song…(but not this hilarious parody about UTIs). Enjoy! -@AlexSmithMD

In her early 20s, Elena Rossi spent 7 years dealing with chronic vaginal pain, yeast infections, and UTIs. She saw 22 doctors, tried all kinds of meds and creams — and nothing was working. The pain was actually getting worse.   In all her visits to doctors of all kinds, all the questions were about her body. No one ever asked her about her relationship, or the quality of sex with her then-boyfriend, or if she felt safe or loved. No one ever asked, How is your heart?    It took her p*ssy literally clamping down and excruciating pain to get her to stop and listen to what her body had been trying to tell her (louder and louder) for years. She was in an abusive relationship, and her entire being was saying: no, stop, get out, run.    Her body held a wisdom that at the time she couldn't recognize or interpret. She spent the next 5 years on a journey of physical, mental, and emotional healing that eventually led to her sexual healing. And in the process, she discovered her life's work.    Elena is a female libido specialist, the author of 2 books, a sex toy designer, and the founder of The Yoni Empire. A sensual connoisseur at heart, she helps women explore the nourishing power of sexuality infused with purpose and meaning.   Today's conversation is raw and radically honest — the kind of no-BS truth-telling that women need in order for real healing to take place. Elena gets at the heart of what we're really craving, why porn makes a terrible sex-ed teacher, and what we need to admit to ourselves before we can truly find pleasure and sexual freedom.    What you'll learn in this episode:  Elena's personal journey from suffering to healing Aimee's recent experience of listening to her body As women, what it means to get clear on our intentions for sex  What's really going on when people say they've ‘lost' their libido What's underneath the things we say we want The thing we don't want to be honest about when it comes to sex   Join us (and 300+ women!) in person or virtually at the Desire on Fire Experience event, October 29-30, in Southern California! www.desireonfirelive.com Code: DESIRE for $500 off the regular ticket price!   Explore our website: https://www.desireonfire.com/ Come and join our FB community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DesireOnFire/ And connect with us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/desireonfire/   Connect with Aimee: Check out my instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/aimeebatuski/   Connect with Ellie: Check out my instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/elliemontgomerie   Connect with Elena: Insta: https://www.instagram.com/the_yoni_empire Website: https://theyoniempire.com/   People/resources mentioned: Steve Haines, Trauma Release Exercises: his book

The primary source for UTIs is presumed to be the gut. That's why in this video, Dr. J and Evan talk about how gut bacteria can contaminate the urethral opening, eventually propagate themselves in the bladder, and cause symptoms of a UTI and possible yeast infection. They also added that women are significantly more likely to get UTIs than men. It is due to anatomical differences that make it easier for disease-causing bacteria to travel to the urinary bladder after accidental transfer from the bowels. They also discuss the other clinical and evidence-based factors with helpful tests to find the root cause of these issues. ===================================== Subscribe on I-Tunes: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/itunes Review us at: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/itunes Visit us at: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com Have a question: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/question

Complex urologic infections are a heterogeneous group of underlying conditions. These patients have upper urinary tract infections (UTIs) and structural or functional abnormalities that reduce the efficacy of antimicrobial therapy. They are at greater risk for treatment failure and morbidity, such as bacteremia and sepsis, perinephric abscess, renal deterioration and emphysematous pyelonephritis. While there are general management principles that can be applied to most patients with complex urologic infections, effective treatment requires a comprehensive, personalized approach to improve patient outcomes.In pursuit of this goal, the Northwestern Medicine Complex Urologic Infectious Diseases Clinic is the first of its kind in the country. The clinic will provide a multidisciplinary, coordinated approach to care for affected patients. In this Better Edge podcast episode, the clinic's founders – Anthony J. Schaeffer, MD, of the Northwestern Medicine Department of Urology, and Teresa R. Zembower, MD, and Janna L. Williams, MD, of the Northwestern Medicine Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department Medicine – introduce the new clinic and discuss their team's current projects and future directions.

Episode 45 of the Fit Mother Project Podcast is all about holistic health and how you can feel better, inside and out. In this episode, you'll meet Kelsey Jack, a holistic practitioner and the founder of https://whollywell.health/ (Wholly Well), which is designed to help people reclaim their health.  At a young age, Kelsey struggled with chronic ear infections and was prescribed many different antibiotics.  Later in life, she started noticing erratic energy, chronic sports injuries, and skin issues.  Her health issues continued well into adulthood, as she became medically injured by the HPV vaccine, broke out in full-body skin lesions, and developed chronic anxiety, chronic UTIs, and severe adrenal fatigue.  After getting pregnant, she developed severe insomnia, and after a traumatic labor, noticeable PTSD.  Completely fed up with the traditional medical model of care, and getting an ‘answer' that always included a prescription, Kelsey went on a quest to get real answers and find true healing.  After finding some answers and doing some self-healing, she started implementing more and more holistic solutions. Her health began to improve, but there was one thing missing: nutrition.  All of this led Kelsey to learn all she could about listening to our bodies, how nutritional deficiencies manifest in the body, and so much more.  Today, Kelsey helps others save hours of research, trial and error, and guesswork to truly get to the root cause of their health struggles. It's an incredible conversation with an incredible woman. You've got to hear it! In this episode, you'll learn:  How traditional treatments can fail us. The importance of nutrition to your mind, body, and soul.  How to truly listen to what your body is telling you. The serious effects of adrenal issues, mitochondrial health, and blood sugar imbalance in the body. The true causes of everyday struggles like chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, hormone imbalance, insomnia, and stress.  And so much more!

Did you know that urinary tract infection is the second most common infection in the United States? Does anyone ever bring that up? We say: maybe, but not nearly enough! As UTIs affect a majority of women on this continent, our clinicians might be relying on obsolete treatment options, and women may feel stigmatized by society. Business of the V speaks with two incredible women dedicated to changing the world of UTIs! In this episode of the Busine$$ of the V, hear from Lindsey Williams and Megan Henken, the Co-Founders of MyUTI. This is the very first platform created with the goal of assisting women suffering from frequent and persistent UTIs by providing dependable testing solutions and support. Lindsey and Megan bring you the best of both worlds, as Lindsey's focus has been in urology, while Megan has been more focused on women's health and sexual wellness. This amazing duo will accompany Rachel and Dr. Dweck in an engaging conversation about how to prevent UTIs, how not to treat it once it has occurred, and how to make the most of MyUTI! You can subscribe or listen to previous episodes of the Busine$$ of the V podcast by clicking here.   TOPICS COVERED: Dweck and Rachel introduce us to the concept of UTIs and offer some advice on how to prevent and treat this infection. If you think you're developing a urinary tract infection, you should consult your gynecologist or internal medicine doctor. Lindsey gives us and overview of hers and Megan's healthcare experience; Lindsey's niche was urology, while Megan focused more on women's health and sexual wellness. Dealing with Stereotypes: UTIs are not all about poor hygiene and unhealthy sexual habits. Dweck emphasizes the importance of making people understand that a UTI is not a shameful condition. Unfortunately, many women simply want to get this problem solved as quickly as possible – “Just get me the drug!” According to Lindsey, it is paramount to identify the root cause of the infection. Step by Step: the entire process of getting a treatment facilitated by MyUTI is thoroughly explained. Rachel brings up over the counter remedies such as Azo and cranberry juice; do these remedies actually work? Dweck emphasizes that MyUTI tests are more than just a simple dipstick; they are actually PCR-based! Lindsey and Megan have connections with urological specialists and telehealth for women, and the test results are processed by a clinical decision support software, which makes them 100% reliable! Megan points out that their primary concern is to put forward accurate and palatable information to the average consumer. MyUTI isn't just about urinary tract infections: there is a lot more to discuss in terms of women's health and pelvic health. HOT FLASH: As many as 4 in 10 women who get a UTI will get at least another one within six months. QUOTES: “Just because it's common doesn't mean it's normal.” (Megan) “UTIs are incredibly common: more than 50% of women have had at least one and many, many more have had recurrent infections.” (Dr. Dweck) “What we're noticing from a consumer perspective is that convenience is trumping a lot of other aspects of healthcare.” (Lindsey) “This is the consumer that we are supporting: the women who knows she shouldn't decide to take the leftover antibiotics that she has under the sink.” (Megan) “Listening from a business model perspective, it sounds to me like the lowest hanging fruit in terms of consumers, are people who have had a UTI before.” (Rachel) “An elderly person can have the progression of a simple UTI to a very serious septic situation very quickly, and those people should be seen by their healthcare providers.” (Dr. Dweck) “We view ourselves as facilitators for access to care, not care providers.” (Lindsey) “I imagine for the people who find you and have these recurring infections, they must think they died and went to heaven.” (Rachel) “Education is really core to our commitment to women, to empower them with knowledge as well as actionable insights.” (Lindsey) “We just really want to be cognizant that we're putting forward accurate and palatable information for the everyday consumer.” (Megan)   FURTHER RESOURCES: Website: www.myuti.com Lindsey @LinkedIn Megan @LinkedIn   LINKS FOR BUSINE$$ OF THE V: Website: www.businessofthev.com Dr. Alyssa Dweck: https://drdweck.com Rachel Braun Scherl: www.sparksolutionsforgrowth.com/about-rachel-braun-scherl/

In this episode of Defiant Health, let's talk about some new insights into a very serious issue that afflicts many females: repeated urinary tract infections, or UTIs. This can happen to a female at any age, but becomes an especially frequent problem as women get older. Of course, the conventional “solution” is to prescribe course after course of antibiotics that disrupt the entire body's microbiome and not uncommonly leads to dysbiosis in the colon and other organs, SIBO, vaginal candida infections and other problems. A number of new observations have emerged that are completely changing the understanding of this common problem. One new and exciting insight is that the urinary system has its own unique microbiome, i.e., a collection of microbes that normally colonize the bladder and other portions of the urinary system, despite having been regarded as sterile for many years. It is disruption of this urinary microbiome that is a major contributor to repeated UTIs. It's also become clear that the vaginal microbiome is a major determinant of urinary health. Let's talk about why this happens and what steps you can take to stack the odds in favor of putting a stop to this annoying and health-impairing issue.  ________________________________________________________________________________Get your Paleovalley discount on fermented grass-fed beef sticks, Bone Broth Collagen, and low-carb snack bars:Use the coupon code "Defiant" for an additional 15% discount.

On this week's episode of the Girlfriend Doctor Show, I had a conversation with Dr. Robert Whitfield, a world-renowned cosmetic surgeon and breast implant illness expert. Dr. Whitfield takes a holistic approach to breast implant illness that includes genetic testing, mold toxicity, and hormone balancing to help patients heal from the inside out.  In this episode, Dr. Whitfield talks about how many women with breast implants come to him with common symptoms including brain fog, mold exposure, and memory loss. Additionally, they can suffer from increased anxiety, depression, cognitive decline, respiratory issues, dry eyes, sinusitis, gut dysfunction, swelling, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, recurring UTIs, bacterial vaginosis, and muscle and joint pain. These symptoms can also align with mold toxicity or Lyme disease Breast implant illness may also be connected to genetic pathway problems, dietary issues, hormonal imbalance and endocrine dysfunction, so it's important to get comprehensive testing done. Dr. Whitfield recommends DNA testing to detect different types of bacteria and fungus that might be causing a breast implant infection. And he says that anyone who has implants from 1996 or older should definitely get tested because there is probably some form of rupture that has occurred.  After having breast implants removed, it's also critical to balance your hormones and maintain a good diet and a positive attitude. Remember -- no one is a greater advocate for your health than you are.    KEY TAKEAWAYS [5:57] Dr. Whitfield's first explant patient with cancer and her diagnosis [10:08] A cosmetic patient with implant infection [16:56] Why Dr. Whitfield considers any implant from 1996 or older to be ruptured [19:27] The four pathways of immunity that are examined carefully in breast implant illness [21:30] Triggers to breast implant illness and accompanying symptoms [26:44] Holistic testing done to optimize breast health and overall health [27:25] Quickest and fastest way to get rid of mold toxins [33:05] How often to get breast implants checked [36:00] Need to balance out hormones when having a breast explant   HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST https://drrobertwhitfield.com/ Youtube channel: Dr. Rob's Solutions https://breastimplantillnessexpert.com/ https://drrobssolutions.myshopify.com/   MEMORABLE QUOTES “What breast implant illness really is to me is out-of-control inflammation. The inflammation that drives breast implant illness drives a lot of the symptomology. Now I have genetic testing that reveals defects in their immune pathways.”  “I encourage clients, if you're super sick, if you're super symptomatic, an explant will be a step to help you, but it will not be the only step that solves the problem because it's usually a multi-factorial problem.”   To learn more about me and to stay connected, visit the links below: Website: The Girlfriend Doctor Instagram: The Girlfriend Doctor

There are some topics that are awkward and uncomfortable as we discuss aging. With the right speakers, though, it can become lighthearted and fun! Occupational Therapist Maria Lindbergh is one of these people, and she specializes in helping people clean their bottoms after using the toilet. She created a course called, “Hard Time Wiping? Let's Talk A-Booty It.” She shares toilet techniques and four options to clean your bottom easier – resulting in better health, hygiene, and self-esteem. In occupational therapy, specialists help people return to daily activities and anything you need to do at home to remain independent - such as going to the bathroom. Maria helps seniors with this each day, having witnessed firsthand how her grandparents with dementia needed this help to care for themselves and stay safe. With the creation of her course, she's driven to help people who may be too embarrassed to bring up the subject with their doctors, as well as their caregivers. Maria discusses a few tips to help seniors with the bathroom. Bidets are common in other parts of the world and helps protect skin and clean yourself more thoroughly. Bathroom safety is also important, such as staying seated and using grab bars to help yourself up and down. Women should also take special care to wipe front to back to prevent the spread of bacteria and prevent UTIs, which can send people to the hospital and cause confusion and cognitive impairment. Topics discussed: Occupational therapy Bathroom struggles in seniors Perks of bidets Senior hygiene UTI prevention Toilet equipment for seniors Staying independent at home Takeaways from this episode: -Occupational therapists can help you stay independent while living your life to the fullest at home. In fact, they can help you be more independent wherever you are in the journey, whether in assisted living or a nursing home. -There are many benefits to using water instead of toilet tissue or wet wipes to clean your bottom: it's environmentally friendly, better for your skin, and can prevent infections. -Bidets come in different price ports, are often inexpensive and come with a range of features depending on your needs. -There are different types of bidets to use, such as handheld, electric, and ones you can install your existing toilet. -For toilet safety, consider adding grab bars. It's also better to stay seated with both feet on the ground when you clean yourself so you're balanced and stable.

Our health is the most important thing that we have and as a married woman of almost 19 years to my dear husband, Andrew and mother of two boys and daughter of my dad, Bill, who's 81, I am acutely aware of the fact that men don't go into the doctor and they don't seek care. In fact, I have an uncle that saw the doctor once in his entire life and died at age 86 of a heart attack while he was climbing a mountain. Men typically have a hard time going into the doctor, and this podcast is for all of you women that care about the men in your life. Whether that's your sons, your dads, your husbands, your brothers, your spouse, your partner. We are covering everything with Dr. Brahmbhatt, a urologist at Orlando Health. We're covering everything from steroid use to infertility, to depression, to prostate exams, to identifying any kidney problems, and what's the best way to see a physician. We are covering the gamut. Doctor B is incredibly approachable, relatable, he makes things funny and the reason I had this podcast was for all of you ladies that are the caregivers of the men that we love, and it's good to recognize the symptoms, and it's good to be encouraging to our men that we love.0:01:35.2 S1: With that, let's get into the interview today, you're gonna learn lots, take some notes, I'm gonna have all the show notes with the links of the products that he recommends, and as well as a link to follow Dr. B on LinkedIn and TikTok. And I just hope that you leave with some new ideas on how to incorporate health and wellness into their lives. So with that, let's get into the episode.  0:02:06 S2: Welcome to the Wellness Essentials Podcast, where we invite you to join the conversation and get inspired to be in the driver's seat of your health and well-being. On this podcast, you'll get an all-access pass inside the minds of MDs, experts and thought leaders in the industry. No topic is off-limits, and we're asking the questions to get you the answers across the gamut of topics when it comes to optimizing your health. This is the WE Podcast.0:02:44 S1: So two things that I wanted to ask about, one was UTIs, that was really interesting on our last interview when you talked about UTIs and then supplements to prevent UTIs as well as recognizing any kidney dysfunction, and then the last thing I wanted to chat about was really prostate health and just some tips for wives to maybe suggest or just to know about, educate us on prostate health. So the first thing with UTIs.0:03:14.6 S2: Okay, so well, I'll give you pretty much a TikTok one minute version on all of these things, so urinary tract infections. Your man should not be getting a urinary tract infection. When men are younger, symptoms of urinary tract infections are usually sexual transmitted diseases, but if you're in a very strong relationship, it doesn't mean he has a sexually transmitted disease, but if they are having symptoms of urinary tract infection, whether it's burning when they pee, blood in the urine, abdominal or bladder pain or fevers, chills, you gotta get yourself checked out 'cause a dude again, should not be having symptoms of urinary tract infections. The reason women, regardless of age, are more prone to it is because your urethras are much shorter, so the bugs from the outside world can get in much quicker, especially if you're post-menopausal. Post-menopausal, that kind of first line army, that's your estrogen and the acidity to that area, is kind of, starts decaying, that's what makes you more prone to infection. Men have the same length urethra and it's longer than the female urethra and the bugs should not be getting in. Usually, the bugs are coming from something on the inside, so when a guy has a urinary tract infection, we do the work up, so is it a kidney stone, is it some blockage in his urethra, does he have scarring there, is he not peeing...0:04:26.3 S2: Or does he have prostatitis or just chronic inflammation. So there is a very extensive workup that is done to kind of sort through these things, 'cause we don't want him to be getting infections again, but the way you would know he has an infection is the symptoms that I mentioned, a rapid change in urinary symptoms, plus or minus, whole body symptoms as well. 0:04:48 S1: Really? Whole body symptoms of…0:04:51 S2: Fevers, chills, fatigue. Now, if he's partied at a bachelor party the weekend before and Monday morning, he's having burning when he pees, it's probably 'cause he's dehydrated, and if he feels like crap is probably 'cause he hadn't slept. So it can't be a one-off thing. It's like you would know, it's like he's been normal, hasn't done anything crazy, and then boom. So that's infections, infections in men are treated pretty much the same way in women initially with antibiotics, and then we would kind of take a deep dive and what the cause of these infections is. Now, one really quick thing about urinary tract infections for either gender is when you get the test done for urinary tract infections, it's usually in the office, it's like a dip stick where we quickly just drop something in, and once it's dropped in, then it quickly gets analyzed by a computer or whatnot, that's not the best way to check for infection, you have some markers and triggers, but that's not the best way.0:05:43.9 S2: The best way to check for infections really is a culture where you actually have your entire urine set up and cultured and where they like to take a deep dive and take a look at things, so that usually is the best way to check for urinary tract infection. I have all these people that come in and say, “Oh, I got checked, blah, blah, my doctor's office and I got an infection.” I'm like, “How do they check for it?”, and it's usually not checked the right way.0:06:09.4 S1: Interesting, so if we have a UTI test, that's the first line of defense to say, “Hey, it's positive”. When you're at home, it's really a screening then, 'cause if you are positive, you should really go in to your physician to get a full culture.0:06:27.8 S2: Yeah, whether it's your physician or whether it's your local urgent care center, you could walk into a grocery store or you walk into one of those corner pharmacies and you can get a test on there, there's actually at home test too, but those are not as accurate, but there's definitely different ways to go and get yourself checked out. So that's urinary tract infections in a nutshell, dudes should not be getting it, if they do, get them treated and then get him evaluated, and usually that will lead down the path of seeing a urologist.0:07:00.6 S1: Okay, and that is what you are.0:07:02.1 S2: That's what I am.0:07:04.1 S1: What about the supplements of like a D-mannose supplement? Does that do any good? 0:07:11.0 S2: I actually am a huge believer in natural remedies and supplements for many diseases, but I would have to see the data on it first. The only supplement that I actually started giving out before the guidelines really promoted it was cranberry. This isn't cranberry juice, this isn't cranberry and vodka drinks, this is actually a cranberry supplement. I think the majority of them do work, but you got it, when you get a supplement, the best thing is to look for certain certifications, now, supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so sometimes you don't know what's in them, where they're coming from, so I really promote like go and either see where your doctors recommend you to make sure they're not making a profit off of it, 'cause sometimes things can be biased, but cranberry supplements, most of them are pretty generic. I think they're fine, and I think they work. Now, should you just take it proactively, no, only take it if you're having a problem, don't put something in your body if you don't need it, so this is not one that I recommend taking proactively. But no, absolutely, for urinary tract infections, I think supplements work great.0:08:11.4 S2: But you know what works better? Drinking water and staying hydrated. That's the thing. I got some going, “Oh, I got burning, burning, burning.”0:08:19.5 S2: I'm like, “How much water did you drink today?” “Two classes and a beer and oh, by the way, I went running outside at the beach.” 0:08:26 S1: And an energy drink. 0:08:28 S2: I'm like, “Can you just drink water please?”0:08:32.5 S2: “Can I have Gatorade?” No, that has salt in it.0:08:36.4 S2: Just drink water, that's gonna help a lot of your burning symptoms, and honestly, like I used to say this, I actually didn't believe it until I had a kidney stone. If you've ever had a kidney stone, if you ever had a stent inside of you, it sucks. And I always tell patients, ”The stent doesn't hurt, I just drink water. It'll be fine.” And I realize I should follow my own advice, so it hurts everywhere down there, but when you drink water it does help 'cause it lubricates your bladder or keeps clots away. So it's the same principle, it's like the more hydrated you are, not only are you gonna feel energetic, your skin's gonna look better, you're gonna glow, but it does help keep urine concentrated and avoids the symptoms and also avoids infections and kidney stones, so supplements, sure.0:09:23.5 S2: But hydration… 0:09:26 S1: If their supplements, Checkable wellness supplements, our UTI prevent is D-mannose and hibiscus flower and cranberry extract. So all three and made in the USA, very proud of that.0:09:42.5 S2: So I love how you're plugging in your product here, so kudos to you.0:09:48.0 S1: It's a great supplement, our number one seller actually. So from the side of prostate health, we don't hear about it as much as women, get your mammogram, and now it's down to age 40 of men, go get your prostate checked. Can you tell us about that?0:10:06.8 S2: Men, you don't really need to go see your doctor, get your prostate checked. Yes, you will eventually get one, but if all men felt that way, no one's gonna go see a doctor, 'cause yo dude, I'm gonna go see a doctor is gonna put his finger up my what, so I usually when I see a guy that's really nervous, hesitant, the first thing I say to them is, “Listen, relax, I'm probably not gonna need to check your prostate, you can relax”, and then their sphincter just relaxes, you see them relaxing in a chair, but when it comes to prostate health, the things that women should look out for is changes in urination, you're going from waking up zero to one to three at night, you see them taking longer to come back when they're going on a break during a football game or basketball game. You see them having to push or strain, you see your dude always standing to pee and now he's sitting to pee, ‘cause he's having to really force it out, so there's lots of symptoms, but usually it's something called nocturia where you guys are waking up at night, there's frequency, there's urgency, there's a weak stream, there may be some dribbling afterwards, so there's these things and what we do when we see these patients in the office, they fill out a survey, so we get an objective measure, and then we kind of from there, follow it. What's really interesting on these surveys is the last question is always about quality of life.0:11:20.0 S2: You may have all these symptoms, but if any bothering you and we do our regular check, there's no point in pushing forward towards something, but there'll be people with minor symptoms in their quality of life…really, really bothered, they can't work, they can't go anywhere. So then we have to get a little bit more aggressive, but when it comes to your guy, he will eventually get a prostate check. The prostate check is part of a screen protocol for prostate cancer, so prostate cancer screening, depending on your family history, could start at 40, could start at 50. You have to kinda talk to your primary care doctor about when you can start based on your family history and other things. So it's a lab test that you get once a year. You get it once a year because that's what insurance covers, unless you have another indication, but that's it, once a year, and then you'll get a prostate exam either now or in the future. I do it maybe once and then I'll do it if there's an issue of suspicion, but really the lab tests and everything else have gotten so good that the need for that has gone down, so guys don't be scared, like that's not the first thing you're gonna get, but when it comes to your prostate, there's actually some really cool things you can do proactively to avoid having prostate issues, those include having a normal weight, a good diet, exercise.0:12:33.1 S2: There's been studies done, longitudinal studies that people that lived in countries that had a very healthy diet and then they moved to America, and they pretty much went from no prostate symptoms to now major prostate symptoms. So there is something within that prostate gland that can be affected by diet, but when you have issues, yes, there's medications and there's surgeries, but just like I mentioned, cranberry for urinary tract infections for your prostate, there's actually some really cool supplements out there now, if you're buying a supplement that you saw on an infomercial at 10 AM at night, and there's a celebrity promoting it, and you gotta sign up for a three-month plan, it's probably a for-profit gimme. Most of these prostate supplements have a combination of things, but usually the main ingredient is saw palmetto. The issue with saw palmetto is again, it's not regulated here, so you don't know exactly what you're getting. Most of what we get here is like the powder extract. The powder extract, you just don't know what the quality is. I'm a big fan of a company called Flomentum, so they actually, it's made right here in my backyard in Florida, and it's a prostate supplement…0:13:35.5 S2: …that's liquid extract. So in Europe, there were studies done looking at the powder versus liquid extract, the liquid extract has been clinically proven to be very strong towards relaxing your prostate, decreasing inflammation. In Europe, it's actually, you need a prescription, you need someone like me to give it to you. Whereas here in the states it's actually a supplement, you can buy it on your own, so that is where you can be proactive, like, “Hey, you wanna do something beyond your vitamins, you can take a prostate supplement, no problem”. I'm not recommending this in your 20s, but unless you're getting in your 40s and you wanna do something that you can proactively actually do it. I, in my office, used to just watch these patients. But if they wanna do something, I do something called active management, so it's not really a bother, but I'm actively doing something for this that could become a problem and prostate health is one of those things that I do with supplements in my office.0:14:25.7 S1: That's so smart, that's actually promotes good health for my guy. Okay, you can monitor it. It's because a lot of times I can't even tell there's no effect, but they wanna see what's putting in my body helping me and so you can help manage that.0:14:45.4 S2: Yeah and the cool thing about prostate supplements is most of the prostate medications do have some sexual side effects, whether it's loss of libido or retrograde ejaculation, whereas supplements really don't have that side effect, they may not be as good as medications, but hey, I think it's worth a try. I've become a big advocate since I've seen the benefits of recommending something like Flomentum to our patients, so it's pretty cool. I'm a big fan.0:15:09.3 S1: That's a very good tip. So the last thing that I wanted to ask you about was if the unrecognized, undiagnosed symptoms of depression in men and what you see from MD side and how to recognize that and suggest to do something about it.0:15:33.1 S2: So you just have a third question about kidneys, kidney damage, can you feel… I just wanted to do well.0:15:38.6 S1: You are so good, let's talk about kidneys quick. I thought you…0:15:42.0 S2: This is gonna be very quick, I know I'm taking too long, but really quickly, for kidneys, there's actually two specialties that manage. I'm the surgeon of the kidneys, if you have a tumor in there, stones, there's actually a medical subspecialty called nephrology, and they manage the medical part of kidneys. So you work as a team, the best way to screen your kidneys for the big stuff is get a lab test where they actually check something called your creatinine and GFR, and they can actually see how well the horsepower of the kidneys is working. For other things, for your kidneys, whether it's a stone or a tumor, that all just kind of depends on what symptoms you have and whether you have imaging order, whether it's a CAT scan, MRI, ultrasound, as a lot of these things get discovered incidentally, in my line work or emergently in the emergency room, where all of a sudden you're having some issue, you get a CAT scan, you find a stone and then boom, you're in the operating room. So proactively, to really protect that kidney, whether it's from stones or medical disease is really just protect your heart really and again, it is so boring, like exercise, diet, avoid salt.0:16:46.7 S2: But it really is that easy. So that's kidneys in general. So you asked a question about depression in men…0:16:53 S1: Wait! Quick question now about creatinine. What if you do have a look? What if your,  are your measures low? Are they high? You said creatinine, and what was the other?0:17:02 S2: Creatinine and glomerular filtration rate. So creatinine, your numbers should be low, and they check the…creatinine and other things, but you're creatinine, your numbers should be low, if it starts going up, that means your kidneys are having some issues or even failing. The confusing thing is the better gauge of what your kidneys are, and the horse power within them and the juice within them is actually the glomerular filtration rate 'cause that takes into account multiple things from about that patient. It even takes into account race in certain cases, so that number is actually opposite, so you should be really high, like close to 80, 100. If that starts going down, then your kidneys are having a problem and I think if it's, it goes down to 15 or 20, that's when you're on the verge of dialysis, you gotta sit on a machine several times a week to basically do what your kidneys do for you naturally, but yes, it's all in the semantics of the lab test.0:18:03.4 S1: Got it. Okay, I didn't mean to interrupt your… but it was a good explanation. Thank you. Now, onto the depression question.0:18:11.2 S2: I'm glad you're not gonna use a video 'cause I know it's cutting off here as I drink my Celsius here. Celsius sponsor us.0:18:18.8 S1: I do love Celsius myself, except I think I drink it on an empty stomach when I went to a yoga sculpt class the other day at 5:30 in the morning, and I thought I was gonna pass out 'cause my heart rate got so high and it was like a 106 degrees. 0:18:34.5 S2: I don't know if you know this, but when you drink these drinks where they say zero calorie, and good for you, and all these things, you know they taste great, but one thing you gotta make note of is these things may taste great, but they can be very salty. So when you look at salt, it's not gonna say salt on here, it's gonna be sodium, so this one actually has zero milligrams, which is pretty interesting, but maybe it's all in their proprietary blend, but you gotta be very careful about that. So a lot of people think, “Well, I'm eating healthy, I don't add any salt to my diet”, but then they're either drinking things or eating things out of a bag that have a lot of sodium to them, and that can cause blood pressure, kidney sons, etcetera. So just be very careful what, I think Celsius overall has a very good balance on everything, but a lot of these energy drinks do not. 0:19:25 S1: Yeah. Like the Monsters with, there's a Bang with creatine that's…0:19:31 S2: Bang is really popular on TikTok. They pay all these influencers to drink it. I mean Bang tastes pretty good, but if you read it, it's like I can't even pronounce half the stuff and I'm like, we're drinking this.0:19:44.1 S2: You know what people don't realize is like, I used to be addicted to Diet Coke and Red Bull. Just be honest with you, as we're going into our conversation about mental health, I used to drink like three to four Diet Cokes a day and diet, I'm like, always diet, but then you read the sodium and everything else, there's actually studies that show that, and that's why all these companies came out with these new versions of sodas like Coke Zero and then Pepsi Max, so all these artificial sweeteners, we may think like, “Oh yeah, they're good for us, blah, blah”. But these artificial sweeteners can actually change your appetite levels, but also it's been shown that they may not raise your sugars, but they can kind of alter, and I don't wanna sound like an expert, ‘cause I'm not an expert on this, but it can change the way your insulin metabolizes certain things, where you can get, it's not really high sugars and diabetes, but you can get subtle remnants of that where this may be triggering some bad things that may happen in the future, so you gotta be careful. Everything in moderation, I used to drink a lot of this stuff, but then I started going on my fitness kick and switched to water, and now I'm down to one, maybe one and a half, so I still drink it...0:20:53.6 S2: I'm not gonna sit here and say I'm super healthy, whether to Diet Coke or something like this, but I do it in moderation. So what I was trying to get at is, I got dudes coming in for low testosterone all the time, the reality is, their body has become so, is it tolerant or intolerant, where they're drinking so much Bang and all these Monster drinks, so your body is used to a constant amount of caffeine and taurine and all these things are supposed to energize you, but then you need more and more and more and more and more, so of course you're crashing at night after your seventh thing, or of course the next morning you feel like crap because you're not gonna get anywhere until you drink two or three of these, so that's one of the hardest conversations like, “Hey, you don't really need testosterone, you don't even need to lose weight, you just gotta get off your caffeine kick, 'cause it's hard 'cause I think people do get kind of addicted to some of these things, but I think you gotta be careful with how much of this stuff you're putting in.0:21:50.9 S1: Yeah, I think depression and men last time we talked, you had said that it goes undiagnosed and that there's a large percent of men that are depressed and things that we can look for, and really what's the best. I feel like, I know you're gonna say diet and exercise, because doesn't it help with everything?0:22:14.6 S2: But in this case, I think it's more a mental connection, so it's about communication. Dudes really try to treat themselves with alcohol or partying or just sitting by themselves and keeping everything in. Mental wellness is key. We all look at our physical bodies, you forget our mental bodies. I personally have engaged in some of these things to help my mental wellness, and I actually sometimes open up to patients about my own struggles because they come in and they want all these things and after maybe the second or third miss, I'm like, “Listen, bro.” So I put the laptop away, I mean, I'm usually not on the laptop, but I look at him, “Listen, bro, I've been through A, B and C, or listen, I've had this surgery, and blah, blah, blah, this is what you should do”, or you know, it's not perfect, but mental wellness is tough. Depression, anxiety, a lot of people are suffering with this stuff and then they go to all these other addictive behaviors. Depression is, it's easy to screen, but it's also hard to screen, and for you, I'm not an expert at it, but I've gotten so good at it because I see these men, I just know that they have some mental illness, not low testosterone or anything else, but to have that conversation is still very difficult for me.0:23:36.2 S1: Is it? For you, it's hard to have with your patients?0:23:39.4 S2: Because they think they're gonna get testosterone or something else, or I'm gonna solve the world, even when they come in for erectile dysfunction like, “Oh, I can't get it up”. I do try to segue into some way about figuring out their relationship status is like, “How long have you been with your wife? Blah blah. Like what's going on? Is it just with her or is it not with your girlfriend?” We get into these deep conversations, and then they usually open up like, “Yeah, she's at menopause and it hurts her”, so I'm like the issue is not really your inability to have erections, it's more you have concern for your partner. Okay, so let's talk about how we can help her, so these are the things I know, we have some doctors here in town that can help her with that problem and let's work on it together. Yeah, but then it's also like they hate each other 'cause the dudes expecting what he sees on YouPorn, ExHamster or that kind of stuff at the age of 80, so you have to have a realistic conversation with them is like, “Listen, you gotta calm down and not be so macho about some of these things”.0:24:40.5 S2: Let's look at, this is on both sides, and honestly, a lot of the time, people are addicted to porn or they become desensitized to it, personal intimacy, one-on-one touch, because when they watch porn and they can look up whatever they want, and it's like one and done. Quick, let's go. Whereas the other way, you gotta buy some flour, you gotta do foreplay, and you gotta do all these other things, so sometimes a lot of work, but I always tell them like this, you gotta stop watching that stuff because that's not reality. All of these things coming together, I think it all is also part of that mental part is because we could be addicted to certain things or we go to other avenues to just get away from our reality, and what I've learned over the past year or two years, and you just gotta face your reality, it's hard. You got as a guy, you gotta face reality like, this is what's wrong, and the wrong is in me, or if the wrong is in someone else, what can you adjust or change, or how can you just get rid of that person in your life so that you kind of stay on track.0:25:50.9 S2: I think men, whether they like to admit or not, are actually very influenced by their social circles, we see all these videos of little girls like Justin Bieber and all these things, but I think men are even more influenced by social factors, but they're just not open about it.0:26:08.3 S1: Yeah, they have an ego that tells them, can't admit that. 0:26:12.9 S2: Yeah, are you talking to me personally or…0:26:14.6 S1: No! I have two teenage boys, and I realized one of them is more influenced than the other, impressionable. And today, this morning, I said he skipped a class yesterday and said, “Oh well, my friends are going to Starbucks and driving around. It was a nice day. So I skipped ceramics”, like you said that you weren't gonna skip any classes and then you skipped.0:26:41.9 S2: Yeah, but mom, it's ceramics, who puts their kid in ceramic class.0:26:45.5 S1: My oldest Will is, it's his best class. He is a beautiful, I'm gonna send you some pictures and Will's my guy that wanted to take steroids, he can bench 250 and he is really good at throwing on the wheel.0:27:00.1 S2: But maybe he wants to do steroids, but not ceramics, but you're forcing him to do one or the other. No, all jokes aside, I think it's good to be engaged like that. I think guys, I don't wanna say ceramics is feminine, that is not the case, but I think guys should be more accepting of doing whatever they want, all because you like something doesn't make you a certain way or give you a certain title. I wear pink shirts all the time, people used to make fun of me in high school, it's like, but I've always embraced my true self, and I think more guys should do that, just be you, BU, that's where I went to college. Boston University.0:27:45.0 S1: Oh, you did? I was just in Boston last week.0:27:47 S2: Oh really? 0:27:48 S1: Yes, I went to a clinical research conference and the American Telemedicine conference. We stayed in Back Bay, and we went to this place called Select Oysters. If you haven't been there, next time you go, you should go. It was amazing. 0:28:06.1 S2: Everyone in Boston goes to, I don't eat meat, I'm vegetarian, man what's it called, now you're gonna kill me. There's tons of them. Very popular place, but yeah, it's a lobster place, but Boston is awesome. I think it's very cool and educational to be there, but mental wellness is key in dudes, I think it's even more important to engage your dude about his mental wellness than his physical wellness, 'cause if he's mentally strong and you guys are on the same wavelength, it's gonna be much easier to get all the other stuff done physically, and I would say utilize your intimacy and what you do in the bedroom as kind of like a way to inspire the other stuff that you want, and I wouldn't do it by force, but there's definitely strategic ways like, Hey, if you go to this then I'll be home even if you're two hours late from your doctor's appointment, but really quickly, some quick things to make doctor's office visits easy for him. Try to get the first appointment block, so whether it's the first appointment in the morning or the afternoon clinic, then usually things are gonna run on time, the second thing is if there's any medical records, just start compiling them.0:29:13.6 S2: There's some apps that do it, but they suck, but any history that you may have like, just do it. Now, there's gonna be paperwork from the doctor's office, but what I tell my patients is to just create a personal thing that only you have access to you on Excel or Word and just have a running thing, so like the dude can just go, How many times do I see a dude that gets an appointment by a wife, like you Patty, and he has no clue why he's there. “I don't know. I don't know.” So give him a list. So early appointment, give him a list, and the third thing is, usually now most people have portals, so you can have access to that portal and you can actually see what was discussed or what orders were put in, and so then you have…Now you're not snooping or anything, obviously, you would get his permission, I'm sure they're gonna be fine, but if you have that, then you're kind of engaged. Sometimes I feel like it's how we engage my kids in school, we know certain things that we give them the independence, but the thing is, once you get started on this track, you can probably just let go and he'll thrive 'cause you'll see how easy it is, but you gotta kinda set him up for success.0:30:19.0 S1: Yes, those are great tips. And to make, it's getting out of their comfort zone and to make it more comfortable and smooth sailing for them, they're gonna utilize the healthcare system even more if it's easier that first time. I love the tip about the first appointment and last appointment. That is excellent.0:30:38.3 S2: Well, the first appointment, both clinics, not the last appointment, if you're doing the last appointment, you're gonna wait a couple hours.0:30:44.5 S1: Oh, I thought you said first and last, or last...0:30:47.7 S2: Well, there's usually two blocks, there's morning clinic, afternoon clinic. So the first appointment in the morning or afternoon clinic.0:30:53.3 S1: Oh, oh, that's good. I see what you're saying. I was wondering, how do you know that you're gonna be on time at a 5 o'clock appointment 'cause...0:31:02.4 S2: But I'm always running on time, so if you're my patient, I will always be on time, so don't worry about what appointment you get.0:31:07.9 S1: Look at that, I love it. Okay… We heard it in the beginning, you have a staff that runs the office so smoothly, so I don't doubt it at all.0:31:17.4 S1: Well Dr. B, it was so nice to have you on again. Thank you. If our guests want to get a hold of you, really follow you, 'cause you have great tips and you're super relatable, what's the best way to follow you?0:31:32 S2: There's multiple avenues, depending on what platform you're on. On most social media platforms, I'm on Dr. Jamin B. So Dr. Jamin B. I have a website, jaminbrahmbhatt.com, or you can just google Jamin Brahmbhatt and things will pop up. You'll see my profile at my hospital, your line to health page, you'll see reviews, etcetera. But I'm also on LinkedIn, I'm huge on LinkedIn, so if you're like a professional and wanna engage there, you can just type my name, J-A-M-I-N Brahmbhatt, B-R-A-H-M-B-H-A-T-T. I think I said that too wrong, but you can just look at the show notes or the title and you'll see. But I've become a big fan of LinkedIn and you can engage me there, the only thing is I can't answer your medical questions. I get people sending me pictures and things, and then they get mad.0:32:19.8 S2: Social media is exactly social media, it's not HIPAA compliant. Yeah, if you wanna engage us professionally in a professional capacity, then we contact the office or I'll give you the number and then you just do it, but I'm not here to offer free advice when it comes to medical stuff, but I do give a lot of free life advice, and then if you just fill in the blanks and you can kind of figure out the rest, so...0:32:42.8 S1: So good. And I think that TikTok, that's what we should follow you on, if you're growing that.0:32:48.7 S2: No, my TikTok is very amateur. It's so bad.0:32:53.8 S1: Well then that's why we should follow you, so then you gotta kick up the game a little bit. 0:33:00.3 S2: Oh my God. It's like, but it's so hard to stay on top of all these platforms, so it's like, I try my best, but yeah, if you wanna hit me up there, no problem, shoot me a like.0:33:09.1 S1: Get your girls to help you.0:33:12.0 S2: They do, listen, whenever I post something with my family, it's always like a major hit, but they're getting of the age where I don't even know if they wanna hang out with me, so...0:33:22.6 S1: Oh, I'm with you there. My daughter, she's turning 12 and just had the play the other day, she gave us this look like, “Oh”, painful that we were in the front row with our cameras. We're like “What?”. We're cool still, aren't we? Not at all. Well, Dr. Brahmbhatt it was so nice to have you on, a pleasure. Thank you for joining us and we will talk to you next time.0:33:47 S2: Thank you Patty. 0:33:56 S1: Thank you so much for tuning in to today's episode. We hope you got a lot out of it.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Yoshi Rahm. He is a board-certified osteopathic family physician with a separate board certification in Integrative and Holistic Medicine. Dr. Yoshi grew up in a small town in Northern California. His simple upbringing, which included living without electricity, TV, or phone, gave him an early appreciation for healthy living.   He attended U.C. San Diego, where he majored in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience and minored in Human Development. He ran Track and Cross-Country for UCSD before co-founding a running club. After graduating, Dr. Yoshi interned at a neuroscience laboratory in Germany and traveled throughout Europe before working at a nonprofit Biotech laboratory in San Diego. Dr. Yoshi attended Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a medical student, he participated in many volunteer activities, including medical missions to Mexico and Ecuador. After medical school, he completed his Internship and Residency in Family Medicine at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. During his time there, he was elected Chief Resident. Upon graduation, he received the two highest distinctions: “Resident Teacher Award” as presented by the faculty and “Resident of the Year Award” as recognized by the staff. Dr. Yoshi then became an Attending Physician teaching at the same residency program. In this episode, Dr. Yoshi speaks about the inspiration behind his career in brain health. He explains why disease and life expectancy stats are getting worse instead of better in the United States. Later, Dr. Yoshi dives into everything methylene blue: the history, the benefits, and how it works to improve your health. Tune in as we chat about ozone therapy, extra-corporeal blood ozonation and oxygenation (EBOO), and other biohacks.

We've done Nephrology, Gynecology, and Phallology — but nothing prepared us for this. Penis implants. Road trip pees. Kegels. Bidets. Squirting. UTIs. Clitoral flim-flam. Elephant bladders. Everyone's favorite Urologist, Dr. Fenwa Milhouse, makes chatting about the uh, juicy stuff effortless and easy. Like peeing should be. She humbly describes herself as a crotch plumber, but she's so much more: a surgeon, a mentor and an inspiration. Dr. Fenwa Milhouse on TikTok @yourfavoriteurologist or Instagram @DrMilhouseMore links at Alieward.com/ologies/urologyYou may also enjoy our episodes on Nephrology (KIDNEYS), Gynecology (VULVAS AND SUCH), and Phallology (PENISES)A donation went to UrologyUnbound.orgSponsors of OlogiesTranscripts and bleeped episodesSmologies (short, classroom-safe) episodesBecome a patron of Ologies for as little as a buck a monthOlogiesMerch.com has hats, shirts, masks, totes!Follow @Ologies on Twitter and InstagramFollow @AlieWard on Twitter and InstagramSound editing by Jarrett Sleeper of MindJam MediaTranscripts by Emily White of The WordaryWebsite by Kelly R.
