I was in middle school at my best friend's house when her Dad got a call one afternoon. It was a complete stranger, albeit an incredibly friendly one, who had taken the time to sort through who my friend’s grandmother was and why she happened to be strolling up and down his street in the middle of the day. On our way over to pick her up, her Dad attempted to describe what was happening in her brain. Over dinner that night, I watched her between bites halfway expecting her to forget which utensil to use for the salad and the soup. But there, surrounded by her family at the dining table she'd eaten at a thousand times or more, she was sharp. Clear. Quick witted and lively. Not a real specific disease, as I learned later through some of my own research, but more an umbrella covering the impairment of at least...

--- May is Melanoma Awareness Month: Prioritize a Skin Exam with Your Dermatologist --- You eat well, get lots of exercise and try to obtain at least eight hours of sleep a night — you’re doing everything right to maintain a healthy lifestyle. But when was the last time you had a skin exam? The skin is the largest organ in the body and plays an extremely important role in our overall health and well-being. It serves as a barrier that protects the body from external stimuli, trauma and dangerous substances, it helps regulate the body’s temperature and is integral in balancing the body’s water. The skin is a warrior fighting on the outside to protect our insides — and it can also provide helpful clues about other issues the body may be experiencing, like stress or inflammation. For all these reasons, it is very important to take care of your skin — and...

There is Reason to Be Hopeful About Cancer Breakthroughs in 2021

There is Reason to Be Hopeful About Cancer Breakthroughs in 2021

Health & Wellness Sorbet Mag

BY EDWARD KIM, M.D., M.B.A., PHYSICIAN-IN-CHIEF, CITY OF HOPE ORANGE COUNTY A recent report from the American Cancer Society finds that death rates from cancer have dropped by the biggest single-year decline on record—encouraging news for us all. But one cancer death is one too many and we must keep pushing for breakthroughs. According to the report, U.S. cancer deaths have dropped by 31 percent since 1991. The death rate from cancer in the U.S. dropped 2.4 percent from 2017 to 2018, a record-setting decline. More effective cancer treatments have helped push this notable trend, particularly in lung cancer. Yet, while mortality from lung cancer—the most lethal form of cancer in the U.S.—is down, other forms have not declined as much. Prostate, breast, and colorectal cancers have not had the steady drops we hoped to see. In fact, breast cancer rates in Orange County are still on the rise. Cancer remains the second leading...

The Perfect Workout: 20 Minutes to Reverse the Effects of Aging

The Perfect Workout: 20 Minutes to Reverse the Effects of Aging

Health & Wellness Jody Robinson

Recently, I, much like many Americans headed into their mid-50’s, realized that it was going to take much more than a brisk walk or a high intensity interval gym session to hold onto the muscle mass I’d worked so hard to attain, then maintain over the years. Also like many Americans, I spent too much time and money attempting to uncover the one magical combination of spinach salads, green smoothies, and exercise that would help me achieve that increasingly elusive goal. Adults who don’t add a weight regimen into their weekly workout routine lose an average of a half pound of lean muscle each year after the age of 25. Women and men in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond who are striving to stay strong, avoid eventual falls, and keep up their energy levels sometimes need a little extra help. That's where LeAnne Fuller and The Perfect Workout comes in. More than 20...
