Hey friends, I hope you are having a fabulous day.
I have so missed you! So much has happened since we last chatted. Our daughter, and Boot Camp Challenge® master trainer extraordinaire, Victoria, was married at the end of April. And, it was amazing. We also ran a half marathon, attended a college graduation, and partied at another wedding. Oh, and trip to Mexico where my husband battled a shark (or so he says). Such a busy time…but I LOVE it!
And, now, I am back to you. And, I CAN’T wait so share with you what I learned from Dr. Alison Ball.
Who is Dr. Ball, you ask? Only the most brilliant D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) in the world! Okay, maybe that is a bit overdramatic, but she is brilliant. And, do you know what I like best about her? She shares her info in a way we can understand. And, she has a real love and passion for her patients. And, she LOVES research and knowledge and always learning. Told you she was brill (brilliant).
I met Dr. Ball a few months back. When I was doing our podcast with Koop on diabetes (The Silent Killer and How to Keep It at Bay with Food), we both had loads of questions about the disease, what caused it, could it be prevented, etc. So, Koop suggested I reach out to Dr. Ball, who works with diabetes on the daily. I asked her to join me on a podcast and answer all our questions, and she said YES!
Here are just a few of the questions I asked Dr. Ball:
• What is the difference between a D.O and M.D.?
(This was for my own curiosity).
• What is diabetes?
• Can diabetes be prevented?
• Can diabetes be cured?
• Will neuropathy (numbness in feet) for sure happen if you have diabetes?
• What is the NUMBER one strategy to AVOID diabetes?
As always, thank you, thank you, thank you for taking time to listen to my podcast. I can’t tell you how honored I am to have your time for just a moment.
And, I appreciate all your ideas. Please continue to share with me what is important to you, want you want to learn about and what I can provide to you to help you on your wellness journey.
