Dr. Mark Moyad and Staying Well

This post gets a lot of hits every day. Probably just comes up when people out there are searching for Dr. Moyad. Anyway, I decided to add a little more to the post to make it just a little more interesting to you who stumble upon it. The new part of the post is in italics, like this paragraph.

A few years ago I heard Dr. Mark Moyad speak to an audience of doctors, nurses, and patients at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. His lecture was outstanding. He had me from "hello" all the way to "goodbye".

You know when you hear a lecture you only take away a small portion since we only remember 10% of what we hear....or so they say. My "take-aways" from his lecture were:

1. Keep a shaker of flax seed on your kitchen table and shake it on your food every day. You won't really taste it and it will, painlessly, do you a lot of good.

2. Get a good multi-vitamin, eat right andt it go at that. You don't need a hundred supplements.

3. Eat a lot of watermelon! Yae! It's the very healthiest red fruit out there. Tomatoes, a close second.

I'll come back to this post often and update it as I remember other things he said. PS. I do have notes too. I'll find them.

Since then I have looked for him and followed his wellness advice. I just ran across this video and thought I would share it with you. Yes, I know it's on Fox News but I promise it is totally, 100% non-political.

Dr. Moyad is, and I quote, "the co-director of the men's health program at the University of Michigan. He received his master's degree in public health from the University of South Florida, where he was one of the lead investigators of the L-tryptophan dietary supplement study that helped to remove this dangerous supplement from the market. He published his first medical article in college on the relationship between a compound found in cottonseed oil and male infertility. Dr. Moyad received his M.D. from Wayne State University School of Medicine. He is currently working part-time on his Ph.D. in pathology and N.D. (naturopathic doctor) degree."

The man knows his stuff! More later.

Enjoy the day! Be well!
