Our Diets Are Killing Us And Doctors Aren't Trained To Help

This article was published by The Hill on October 18, 2019. It was written by Emily M. Broad Lieb, Drs. Stephen DeVries and Walter Willet What if your doctor failed to talk to you about the most important threat to your health? Wouldn't you worry about the quality of your health care? Poor quality diet is a leading cause of death in the United States, but it is unlikely that your doctor has the knowledge to even begin a meaningful conversation about your nutrition or to make an appropriate dietary referral. Most doctors lack the knowledge necessary to offer nutrition advice to patients; indeed, fewer than 14 percent of physicians report feeling equipped to advise on a diet or the connection between food and health. This is unsurprising given that,...

All of these fall under the term “Qi” which is loosely translated as “life force, vapor, steam, and energy”.

The Power of A Second Opinion

The Power of A Second Opinion by Dr. Nancy Palermo Lietz, MD Caroline was a healthy 46 year old diagnosed with breast carcinoma in situ following a radiology biopsy done after an abnormal mammogram. As with many women, she was eager to proceed with treatment and was quickly referred to a surgeon through her primary care with no forethought or research on treatment options.  She was quickly scheduled for a lumpectomy and node biopsy only to find out a month later that the cancer was more advanced and she would require further surgery and treatment. A review of the pathology from the first surgery confirmed an invasive high-grade cancer that would have been better treated with mastectomy, chemotherapy and postoperative radiation. Performing the incorrect surgery only...

Breast Cancer Prevention

Breast Cancer Awareness…Prevention by Dr. Nancy Palermo Lietz, MD Unless you’ve had your head in the sand you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of October it is impossible to avoid articles that highlight Breast Cancer and the inordinate number of women who suffer every minute with the diagnosis of this  feared disease. It is said this “awareness” has only added fear without making any measurable difference in the disease.  In Preventative Medicine magazine 80% of women state they are moderately or very afraid of the diagnosis of breast cancer and rate this as one of their greatest fears. Despite these fears, the reality is 90% of women will never get this diagnosis. Breast Cancer Awareness month was established in 1985 by...
