Dear Diary,

As I mentioned in my previous entry, these are what I picked up from the OCM last Friday for the Men's Health Run. Well, to be precise, it was not a marathon, like what I used to tell my friends. Merely a quarter of it, a 10km run to be exact.

Basically, I got this:

vouchers for goodie bag, a certificate of participation and a free breakfast from 1901

and this:

an adidas RM50 voucher for the puchase of running shoes

and this:

and this:

a running tee from adidas worth RM69.90

Not bad, eh?

But guess what? I was not be able to participate the running held last Sunday. The reason?

Wait for my next entry ;)

Why I chose Family Medicine...
I've been reading a lot of posts lately about what's wrong with Family cheap cialis. Truth be told, it's a long list. But all in all, I love my job. Maybe my tune will change as the years go by and burn out sets in, I'm still a newbie.

I had a lot of trouble deciding between Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine, and went so far as to interview for both programs. I liked Emergency Medicine a bit better, but what tipped the scales in the other direction was the burnout factor. Emergency docs spend more time dealing with unpleasant people than most professionals, and it wears on them. I certainly worked with a few community ER docs who had been in the business 20+ years and were still enjoying it. Unfortunately, they were the exception. I leave my office 4 of 5 days a week feeling great about myself, and great about my patients. I wouldn't have been able to do that as an ER doc (but they still have better blogs).

Here's my list of what's right with Family Medicine:

1. It's Life-friendly. I was going to say family-friendly, but it's more than that. Sure, you can be a workaholic in family medicine, but you don't have to be. It's easy to find an outpatient job where you can spend weekend and holidays with your kids, or your garden, or your fishing pole.

2. It's flexible. Like skin procedures? Great, everyone in your practice who doesn't will send them your way. Hate kids? Avoid them. Love OB? Move to Alaska, they need us up there. You can pick your poison.

3. You're in demand. Unless you are trying to practice in a dwindling population center, you'll do fine. I supposed this could be said of all physicians, but the predicted primary care shortages are looking like job security for me.

4. It's challenging. I knew a family medicine resident who had quit her ophthalmology residency after her first year. She said that she knew within 30 seconds of speaking with her ophthalmology patients which of 5 problems she was dealing with, and was immensely bored. That's a problem I'll never have.

5. The Marcus Welby effect. A lot of patients trust their family doctors more than their specialists. They realize you have a view of the whole person, not just their left kidney. True, some patients treat me like the bottom-of-the-class idiot who couldn't get into a better program, but they are few and far between. It's super-cornball, but you meet a lot of really nice people.

Family Medicine has some big issues to tackle. Reimbursement is right up there. Getting bitch-slapped routinely by the insurance companies is on the list. You've got to be able to handle not knowing. You've got to be able to handle the Monday morning quarterbacking that the specialists will do to you. You've got to be damn good at multitasking.

But I love my job.

Herbal Supplements

Go or not herbal, that is the question ...

It's a possibility very difficult these days with so many choices in health care herbal. Many people today are turning to "organic" and "natural" also known as grass. The growing popularity of herbal supplements has created a new fad if not a health lifestyle. But before joining the bandwagon, here are some things you need to know about it, "green" dietary supplementing machine.

What is the difference between a drug and a dietary supplement?

According to the definition of all the food and drug administrations in different countries, drugs are chemicals that can prevent, prolong life, treat other effects of a health condition, improve the quality of life and / or cure ailments and diseases, or alter the function of any part or chemicals inside the body. These drugs have approved therapeutic claims. For example, paracetamol is a drug to lower body temperature in fever. Ascorbic acid is indicated for the treatment of scurvy. Iron supplements are given to treat mild cases of anemia.

Herbal supplements are not classified as drugs but as dietary supplements. The main difference is that no therapeutic claims have been approved contrary to the case of drugs. Moreover, dietary supplements or may contain vitamins, minerals, herbs, or amino acids, all aimed at enhancing or supplementing the diet of an individual. They are not intended to be taken only as a substitute for any food or medicine.

Most of the drugs manufactured now have once came from animals and plants. Through the years, chemists isolated the life-saving or life-curing components and separated them from the harmful. This led to the development of research on drugs and more drugs that lead to the production of a different variety of drugs for many diseases and conditions from synthetic sources. But we still have semi-synthetic drugs and drugs that the composition more or less approximate more natural. Because herbal supplements are made from a mixture of crude herbs reduced into powder or gel form, and then packaged as order cialis and capsules, there is the possibility of life threatening or at least body chemistry that alter the components are present, hence the expression of concern from the medical community.
