Chores cause conflict. Try managing them like this instead.

When managing household tasks, its best to set clear expectations about whose job it is to take care of what. Often we do things we feel are important, and put less value on other tasks others may be doing — it's important to show appreciation to keep home maintenance a well-oiled machine. Often people feel it's not their responsibility to keep things maintained when others are acting similarly in a shared space. Outer Order, Inner Calm: D...

The truth about artificial intelligence in medicine

For many months, artificial intelligence has been in my peripheral vision, just sitting there, ignored by me because it seemed too far in the future to be interesting now. And then, there were all these terms — Big Data, machine learning, data science — which circled the subject and, frankly, gave me a bit of […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Should you listen to music while doing intellectual work? It depends on the music, the task, and your personality

Given how many of us listen to music while studying or doing other cerebral work, you'd think psychology would have a set of clear answers as to whether the practice is likely to help or hinder performance. In fact, the research literature is rather a mess (not that that has deterred some enterprising individuals from making bold claims).There's the largely discredited "Mozart Effect" – the idea that listening to classical music can boost subsequent IQ, except that when first documented in the 9...

Mental Health within Athletics: The Invisible Competition

Imagine a common scenario, two athletes on the bench. One struggling with depression, and one recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon. Which seems more severe? Glaring social stigma points to the athlete with the physical injury. But mental illnesses are just as detrimental to performance. After battling depression my freshman year, and rupturing my Achilles during my sophomore year, I can declare firsthand that both setbacks are equally valid. Committing to Towson Univers...

The hidden curriculum of medical school can be overwhelming and unforgiving

I met Mr. B during my week on the endocrine service of my internal medicine rotation. My attending told me we were being consulted for this patient’s high sugars and a foot ulcer, and asked me to take the history. I walked into Mr. B’s room and was immediately struck by its stench.

Do You Need CBD Oil For Pain Management?

Unfortunately, twenty percent of people worldwide are coping with pain every day in their lives. Worst still is that some are dealing with chronic pain.

Well, you don’t have to join that number.  What you need is CBD Oil. In fact, if you have been experiencing some pains in your body, for example...

Our conditioning is part of our toxic load

An oncologist explains how to get your loved ones tested for cancer

I see several patients daily with cancer. Some days can be tough, but nothing compares to what they are going through. I know that. The physical anguish and toll that chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can take on the body. The burden that the disease can take on the mind and the soul.

How Parents Can Model Healthy Behavior for Their Kids & Teens

Parents want their children to grow up healthy both physically and emotionally but are unaware that the best path for achieving this is for them to model these behaviors. Parental influence is powerful and lasts well into adulthood. Your children are always watching, and while what you tell them is important, your example has a stronger impact on them. What you do serves as a template for your kids’ behavior, and they often emulate it. This goes for anything from how to cope with emotions, de...

How a straight shooter is trying to change Washington state’s vaccine-exemption law

Amid a measles outbreak in his home county, state Rep. Paul Harris says he felt compelled to act to limit exemptions to the MMR vaccine. It's odd, he thinks, that more in his GOP caucus don't support his proposal given that, in his estimation, all are probably vaccinated themselves.

The problems with Benzodiazapine drugs.

Xanax is a benzodiazepine drug. There are many others. While we are focused on the opioid epidemic, the abuse of benzos is growing in the U.S. as well. I see many clients who have been prescribed a benzo for anxiety. It is very easy to develop a tolerance, become addicted, and then have worst symptoms than the ones being treated to begin with during withdrawal. [Author: David G. Markham]

3 Widely Held Misconceptions about Marriage

“… there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” –  Shakespeare,  Hamlet Shakespeare knew what he was talking about. Concerning marriage, if what we think about it is mistaken, we can do serious harm to our relationship. Three widely believed myths about marriage will be described below: You should not have to “work” on a marriage. My spouse should know how I feel and what I want: I shouldn’t have to say it.

Medicare for all and the problem of health care on demand

The evolving politics of single-payer health care conflate the concepts of universal coverage, health care on demand and free health care. To the indiscriminate progressive mind, all three are part of the holy grail. The fly in the ointment is that highly attractive and altruistic politics runs into the brick wall of reality.
