Monday, July 1, 2014 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio.
Its July already? Hot weather brings out the plants, and can also make us a little bit wild and strange. We are going to be covering both topics as well as digestive and medical questions. First the plants. The power of plants to heal is being celebrated by the New York Botanical Garden, which has opened a new exhibition: Wild Medicine: Healing Plants Around the World, Featuring The Italian Renaissance Garden (through September 8, 2013)Join me and Dr Michael Balick, the Vice President for Botanical Science and the curator of the exhibit as we talk about the relationship between plants and people.
Plants? Questions? Call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
After this, we'll have Gastroenterology Update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
First the wild, now the strange. Join me and author Nathan Belofsky, as we talk about his book "Strange Medicine: A shocking history of Real Medical Practices Throughout the Ages." The next time your doctor gets a little bit puffy, tell him or her about the perfectly acceptable practices that Mr. Belofsky describes in this book.
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me anything you want on any medical topic at all: it doesn't matter what it is. Anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me at 1-877-NYUDOCS or tweet me @doctorira.
