Letter from the President

Taxes Are Forever!

     Thank heavens my CPA father taught us to make sure we pay our taxes all year long. A young cousin of mine is learning the hard lesson of what happens when you don’t. There are two more days to get them paid so this is your warning bell!

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is “the most common adult leukemia in western societies,” according to Dr Thomas J Kipps, MD, PhD, at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. He and his team are conducting a Phase I study of cirmtuzumab and early results are promising.
  •      A clinical trial at UCLA is testing a brand new therapy called Keytruda and it is changing the game and saving lives for people with melanoma that has spread. Dr Antoni Ribas, MD, PhD and Professor of Medicine at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine is heading up this trial.
  •      Infertility is a devastating condition that many couples deal with. Treatment options have been surgery or invitro fertilization but Belinda Wurn, a physical therapist at Clear Passage Therapies in Gainesville, Florida has another solution. She has had tremendous success in massaging away the adhesions that block some women’s fallopian tubes and they then get pregnant.

     Our first special report this week is about the exoskeleton known as EKSO for victims of stroke and spinal cord injuries. Using it along with physical therapy has enabled Martha Burger to go from walking 200 steps to 1000 steps per session and she is very grateful.

     Baxter Montgomery, MD, cardiologist at Montgomery Heart & Wellness in Houston contributed to a book by Shushana Castle that advises us to “Rethink Food—100+ Doctors Can’t Be Wrong.” Dr Montgomery runs a nutritional boot camp at his practice and says we need to allow the body to heal itself in a natural way.

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesBoosting A Natural Protection Against Alzheimer's Premium Content in ArchivesDiet Soda Linked to Increases in Belly Fat.

     Our last report this week is “Vasectomy Reversal: A Second Chance for Men” and the doctor we interviewed is Dr Philip Werthman, MD, MMH, FACS, Director of the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Vasectomy Reversal in Los Angeles. He has some pretty impressive statistics so be sure to read this if you are interested.

And there's more where that came from...

“The American myth that anyone who works hard will get ahead, and that wealth accumulation is a product of individual effort and merit, is no longer sustainable.”
