Medical Myths

Sep 30, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

Medical information can be confusing. New data is continually released and is often appealing to the hopeful, the nervous and the health conscious. Style consulted with three local medical professionals and gathered some of the misperceptions they encounter on a regular basis, as well as the information to set the record straight.Marshall Medical Center 11. Cracking your knuckles causes arthritis. The cracking or popping sound that you hear is simply the breaking of the adhesive seal in the joint, and there is no evidence to show that this causes arthritis. 12. Bed rest is a useful therapy. Studies have repeatedly found that early mobilization is better than bed rest for prevention and treatment of some medical conditions.13. Antibiotics should be used to treat acute sinusitis. Patients with severe signs and symptoms of sinusitis lasting longer than 10 days may benefit from antibiotics, while less severe cases may do just as well without them.14. Drink eight glasses of water per day. There has never been a scientific study to support this. Let your thirst guide your fluid intake unless there is a specific medical reason to do differently. The major exceptions are during exercise or when working out in the heat—drink plenty of water to remain hydrated. 15. You can get the flu from getting a flu shot. You cannot get the flu from a flu vaccine. Some people who get the vaccine might still get the flu, but they will usually get a milder case than people who are not vaccinated. – Family Physician Lance Holtry, D.O.

Susan Lee, Mrs. El Dorado County 2009, is the founder of BeAttitudes In Me, a non-profit organization that was founded to help children of all ages develop confidence, learn to capitalize on their strengths, and appreciate the beauty of differences in their peers. “BeAttitudes such as: Be Polite, Be Respectful, and Be Forgiving ground children with the valuable roots needed as they go through school and into adulthood,” says Lee. BeAttitudes In Me partners with the community to develop activities that support the BeAttitudes such as poster and story contests, book clubs and charity projects. Susan is working to integrate the BeAttitudes In Me into the after school programs in El Dorado County. Each month, one BeAttitude is spotlighted as the month’s theme to provide time to practice each value introduced. “I would like to use El Dorado County as the example to be able to go into all the surrounding counties and eventually throughout California and then the rest of the United States,” Lee passionately says.On a personal level, Lee is very involved with her husband and children, loves to make handwritten cards and letters, and gives God credit as her biggest inspiration.For more on Susan Lee, be sure to pick up this month's copy of FoothillStyle.

Nashville

Sep 30, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

The United States is a country so large and diverse that a domestic trip can feel like an international one. Perhaps no regional contrast is starker than that between the casual West Coast and the decorous South. With its gentle yet dignified pace, signature drawl and profound sense of tradition, the American South is a veritable nation within a nation. Nashville, Tennessee is known as “The Athens of the South,” a moniker that refers to its proud heritage of higher education. This vibrant city also resembles classical Athens in its increasingly cosmopolitan character, its wealth of cultural outlets, and in the civic pride that is evident among its residents. Unless you’re a country music aficionado, Nashville may not be the first place that you think of when you’re planning a getaway, but with all of its charm, style and hospitality, it’s time that this undervalued southern gem got some attention.How to Get ThereBefore you plan a trip to Nashville, keep these tips in mind. Each season offers its own advantages (spring and summer tend to be particularly warm and activity-packed) but weather can be unpredictable. Check the forecast in advance, but don’t expect it to be set in stone– be prepared for varied temperatures (a jacket for chilly evenings, for example), humidity and the occasional rainstorm. Commercial flights between Sacramento and Nashville will contain at least one stop, and consequently air travel time generally starts at about five and a half hours. Once you reach Nashville, you’ll find that many of the downtown attractions are within walking distance of one another, and cab services are available. However, since distances of 10 miles or more separate many attractions of greater Nashville, and there is not an extensive public transportation system in place, it is wise to rent a car.For more on Nashville, be sure to pick up this month's copy of FoothillStyle.

2006 Vina Cobos LaGarto MerlotNothing makes me giddier than finding a wine that is such an enormous value that I’m looking over my shoulder for police to arrest me for theft. Vina Cobo’s LaGarto Merlot is one of those “hot” finds. Paul Hobbs produces this smart wine and is one of the most celebrated winemakers in California. Vina Cobo is Mr. Hobbs’ Argentinean venture with partners Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud. With the same love and dedication as Paul commits to his California wines, so is that love expressed in his Argentinean wines… at a fraction of the price. This little beauty is value priced but delivers on the expectation of Paul Hobbs as the producer.The 2006 Vina Cobo’s LaGarto Merlot delivers like you wouldn’t believe. This surprisingly 100 percent merlot is dark ruby-purple colored and has big aromas of black cherry and spice. The full-bodied characteristic of this red wine is more similar to a Zinfandel or a Cabernet than the much-maligned Merlot. The unbelievable layering of blackberry, plum, black cherry, toast and clove flavors will astound you. You won’t believe it’s the Merlot that you remember. Ripe and supple with touches of white pepper will provide that “everlasting gobstopper” finish. One that Willy Wonka would be proud of! The Vina Cobo LaGarto Merlot will knock your socks off. Why do you think I’m bare footed?!— Julie MorelandJulie is the owner and Wine Psychic of WineStyles – Granite Bay.For more wine reviews, be sure to pick up this month's copy of Style-Roseville Granite Bay Rocklin edition.

2005 Primus Vineyards Sierra Foothills MerlotTom Brown, the Proprietor of Primus Vineyards El Dorado County's Camino, has nurtured a fledgling winery over the past five years and in my opinion, made it into the only “cult” winery in the entire Sierra Foothills! His wines have fetched over $1700 per bottle at auction and sell out normally within three weeks of release! Tom believes that his cost should not be a factor, so no expense is spared in the production of his wines. The 2005 Sierra Foothills Merlot is one of the finest Merlots you will ever taste, including anything from Napa or France. Tom’s small block of Merlot on a north face of his estate produces a Merlot that is so lush and balanced – it is nothing short of amazing. Available only at the winery, you will count yourself among actors, celebrities and wine aficionados of the world who enjoy Primus Vineyards wines!Editors note: The same 2005 Primus Vineyards Merlot will be available, but with a new name: 2005 ParaVí Vineyards Merlot.—Russell ReyesRuss is a freelance writer who hosts monthly Dolce VinoWine University in Cameron Park.His blog is foothillwinereview.com.For more wine reviews, be sure to pick up this month's copy of FoothillStyle.

Medical information can be confusing. New data is continually released and is often appealing to the hopeful, the nervous and the health conscious. Style consulted with three local medical professionals and gathered some of the misperceptions they encounter on a regular basis, as well as the information to set the record straight.Roseville Pediatric Medical Group6. Infants will eat as much as they need. Quite to the contrary, most infants do not tend to eat the full 10 percent of their birth weight that they need in the first week of life!7. A jaundiced baby is a very sick baby. Most newborn infants will become jaundiced during the first week of life. This is physiologically expected and normal.8. Children are resilient to head injuries. If a child sustains a head trauma, he may look and act normal right after the injury, but this does not mean that severe injury did not occur. Head trauma in children must be closely monitored for 12 to 24 hours.9. An infant that does not roll over is abnormal. Rolling over is no longer a developmental milestone. Since the awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), babies are laid on their backs rather than their tummies.10. Young children should be treated for hyperactivity. Normal children have lots of energy and do not yet know how to release it – too many are drugged at too early of an age. – Pediatrician Ravinder Khaira, M.D.For Medical Myths numbers one through five and 11 through 15, be sure to pick up this month's copy of Style-Roseville Granite Bay Rocklin edition.
