11.17.2013

Itriage     Over the past few years, the word “superfood” has entered the public’s vocabulary. Originally a marketing term, we’ve come to know superfoods as foods that are of high nutritional value. While there is no scientific definition of a superfood, it’s true that certain foods pack a lot of nutritional punch. Here are eight such foods to incorporate into your diet.   1. Eggs: The nice thing about eggs is that they’re cheap, easy to make and can even function as a great on-the-go snack if you hard-boil them. Historically, eggs have received a bad rap because egg yolks contain high levels of cholesterol. However, eggs contain a number of important nutrients, including protein, iron, minerals, B vitamins and folic acid, and according to the Mayo Clinic, eating four egg yolks or fewer on a weekly basis does not increase your risk of heart disease.

Becca Was in……Reykjavik, Iceland

03.08.2013

Nobody guessed it from the pictures. Hopefully someone will figure out where Becca is now. Here is what Becca had to say about Iceland:   Iceland Itinerary: Day 1- Explore Reykjavik a. Hallgrimskirkja church: This church was built last century and was made to look like the lava flow of Iceland’s volcanoes. It is monochromatic and striking in a way that is unlike all of the older churches I’ve seen. The view of Reykjavik from the top of the tower was fantastic- all of the different colored houses look like toy buildings daintily placed along the unbelievably picturesque ocean, with the snowcapped mountains in the background. b. Kolaportið Flea Market: The offerings here were strange, from thick knit sweaters to plastic dress-up masks to dried fish. It gave the first clue to the funky nature of the people who live here. c. Maritime Museum: Learned about history of Reykjavik and …

Everything You Wanted To Know About Ear Infections – Part 2

02.25.2013

iTriage Recently we covered the nuts and bolts of why kids get ear infections. In this installment of our series, we’ll take a look at treatment and prevention of this common condition. The first question to consider is whether we need to treat at all. Antibiotics have been around for 78 years. In the thousands of years prior to 1935, children recovered from ear infections just fine without the aid of any medication. How can this be? Well, as it turns out, the human immune system is quite capable of eradicating bacterial invaders in the middle ear space. Another point to consider: A hefty number of middle ear infections are caused by viruses. You’ll recall that antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses. So for many kids, an antibiotic isn’t going to help. And finally, the over-use of antibiotics, especially in an infection that would resolve on its own or one that …

We talked to Philip McAndrew, MD, an internist at Loyola University Health System in Maywood, Ill, who suggested these strategies to kick the habit for good: Build a team: “You can’t do this alone.
