Monday, June 22, 2009 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119, Doctor Radio!
Happy Summer! A wet one here in New York, but you still have to enjoy the daylight and the warmer than winter weather!
We have a great show lined up for everyone on Monday. As everyone knows, I consider myself the consummate professional on all things stool related. I understand why good bowel habits are important and I understand why so many of us are afraid (or just disgusted) to talk about it. So it is always a pleasure to have a guest on the air with a similar mindset. Dr. Anish Sheth, a gastroenterologist and the author of What's Your Poo Telling You will be joining me to talk about everything you ever wanted to know about your stool, but were afraid to ask. If you have any questions about stool that we don't talk about, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS and we'll answer it!
Most of us don't take the physical punishment that NFL players do, but, if you are active, you are likely to start having some injuries (Did I tell you about my shoulder recently...owww!). And we may have a lot to learn from former NFL players. Joining us to discuss his research is Dr. Andrew Hecht, a spine surgeon, who will talk to us about what the NFL is doing for its former players as well as what you can do for your aching back!!
If you have back pain, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
And what about Zicam. For years, people have been telling me in the office that they take stuff for a cold and it works. As a physician, I had no cure (else I would be on an Island in the Carribean) and often said "sure! If it works for you!" Joining us will be NYU Assistant Professor and Head of ENT at North Shore University Hospital Todd Schaeffer to talk about Zicam, other over the counter remedies, and what you can do for the common cold, your sinuses and allergies!
If you have any questions about over the counter remedies for colds, the flu and allergies, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!!
Of course, we will end the show with "Ask Dr. Ira," where I can answer all of the questions that you forgot to ask your own doctor. When your doctor doesn't have the time, we do!!!
