Monday, November 25th, 2013 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!

Thanksgiving is in the air here in New York City. The crowds are back, its cold, and the kids are smelling a four day weekend.  I am putting the final touches on my poison lecture for the American Museum of Natural History Monday night.

Which brings us to the first topic of our show. How do you do Thanksgiving right if you or one of your guests have allergies, celiac disease, or gluten sensitivity? Join me and Rachel Begun, MS, RD as we talk about just that! We will also be talking about any digestive issues you may have in light of the excessive amounts of food most of us (including me) tend to eat.

Call us with your holiday cooking tips for those with health problems at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will expand the GI conversation after this with GI update, where I will answer any question on digestive disease...find out how to beat that stomach ache before eating all that Turkey.  Tweet me, or give a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

What! No jellied tube of cranberries at the original Thanksgiving.  What did they eat? How long did it last?  Did they create touch football? What really happened? Join me and Mary Gunderson, who brings her practice of paleocuisineology(R) with a Thanksgiving twist to the beginning of our second hour. Mary will highlight the meats and veggies at our Thanksgiving table that are modern as well as ancient traditions in North America.
Mary writes about food history and culture, health and well-being at and and is the author of The Food Journal of Lewis & Clark: Recipes for an Expedition (History Cooks(R) 2003) and other food and history books.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
