alright friends, I am 100% going to phoenix this summer from Aug 6-9. I bought plane tickets and everything. However, the hotel has a “deal” where the conference goers can pay only 195$ a night!
So I’m going to rent a car for a third of the price and stay with friends. One of my undergrad friends lives about 20 mins away from the conference but isn’t sure that I’ll be able to stay with her. I know that at least 2 of you are at SCNM and therefore pretty close to the Biltmore. Want an adorable medblr to sleep on your couch and maybe eat your food? bradfordnd, healinglifenaturally?
-one good bathroom cry
- one good car trip cry
- one mocha (with whipped cream)
- one raspberry coffee cake
- now getting on with the solutions instead of feeling sorry for myself.
It’s a crying in the bathroom sort of day. Why do we even do this
Just processing the insurance forms costs $58 for every patient encounter, according to Dr. Stephen Schimpff, an internist and former CEO of University of Maryland Medical Center who is writing a book about the crisis in primary care. To make ends meet, physicians have had to increase the number of patients they see. The end result is that the average face-to-face clinic visit lasts about 12 minutes.
I took paper notes for novelty but then realized that basically I’m doing the poor version of tablet function with docuscan and paper and albums.
Someday I will get a tablet…
James B Adams sat next to me at lunch at this conference. I was so excited! *sing songy* Nerd crush!
Dr. P is really into GI flora autism researchers.
I totally get it. I found out that the dude who wrote my nutrition book is going to be at a conference I’m going to and I kinda want him to sign it.
In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin Blaser argues that the overuse of antibiotics, as well as now-common practices like C-sections, may be messing with gut microbes.
couple drops of breast milk directly into the ear seems to work on ear infections too :)
Absolutely. That ish is magic and would have topped the list in a younger kid. However, the scenario given was for a 5 year old, and most -even world wide- are out of milk by then. Except in Mongolia, where breastfeeding means kids grow up to be better wrestlers and the average weaning range is more like 4- 6.
CAVEAT: this is not intended to serve as medical advise and not specific enough to be a protocol and I wouldn’t do all of these at once, the list is just for contrast to this mornings scenario
-cold socks. You guys have got to be sick of hearing about cold socks from me by now
-warm compress and garlic/ mullein oil on the ear
-thyme tea or “pizza water” as some kids like to call it
- lemon balm and linden tea
- a spoonful of honey
- one of the children’s glycerites like wish gardens kick ass immune or wise woman’s children’s formulas
- cutting all dairy, apple, and orange from kiddos diet for a week
- reducing all refined sugar for a week
And I have about 20 more ideas. You don’t always need to prescribe antibiotics for the simple stuff. Just throwing this out there in response to the massive antibiotics response to baffled’s scenario. I see lots of kids (including my own) and you’d be amazed how fast they respond to alternative treatments.
