Now days if kids don't want to eat what is being served, parents will often take their kids out to fast food. More and more parents cater to their kids bad eating habits and often promote unhealthy eating behavior.  What would you say to parents who do this?
  • We are living in a country where a huge percentage of people are overweight and obese. Thinking about healthy meals…what can we do as a society including politicians, medical experts, teachers and parents to finally get this problem situation under control?  Everyone is talking about getting healthy but if you look around, there are still so many overweight and obese people everywhere.  What can we do?
  • The American family is very busy today more than ever with PTA meetings, work, school, soccer, ballet and a host of other busy activities.  Often times, healthy eating gets brushed to the side and junk food and fast food is served because of time and convenience.  Can you suggest some easy and simple foods and recipes that busy parents can make to ensure that their family is eating healthy while on the go?

Glen Ogle, President of GOGLE LLC, the creators of the MyBloodWorks App, a personal medical health tracker which is available in the Apple App Store joins eHealth Radio and the Healthcare and Technology Channels.

Duration: 5:58

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Glen Ogle discuss the following:

  • What's new with MyBloodWorks App?
  • Anything else new?
  • What makes MyBloodWorks unique?
  • What do you think about Medical devices that plugs into your phone?
  • You have stated that hospitals put results on their websites for patients to see privately. How does this impact MyBloodWorks?

I tried many ways to monitor my health. Until I created MyBloodWorks, it was very difficult to keep track of my health. One out of three Americans will get high blood pressure. Changes in your pulse can be a clue to something. Many people have blood tests. Diabetes is on the rise. MyBloodWorks will track YOUR health, if you only want to track some areas of your health in MyBloodWorks, then just track what YOU want.

As a transplant patient with years of dialysis under my belt, iv'e been to over 100 physician visits and stayed in hospitals over 6 months of my life, not including dialysis. I know what you need to monitor. I take suggestions on improving MyBloodWorks as I have already updated the App on a MyBloodWorks users suggestion. I think this is the easiest medical App on the App Store.

One of 15 Top Chefs on Fox’s MasterChef Show, Christine Silverstein

One of 15 Top Chefs on Fox’s MasterChef Show, Christine Silverstein

July 8, 2014

Christine Silverstein, an investment professional who is wearing a unique hat this summer that of a chef in this season’s MasterChef Show on FOX joins eHealth Radio and the Nutrition Channel. Christine is one of 15 top chefs who is cooking up excitement this season.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Christine Silverstein discuss the following:

  • What is your relationship with food that inspired you to become a MasterChef?
  • What is your mission on the show? What do you want viewers to learn from you?
  • You are very passionate about “cooking to heal” or what you call “Food Therapy”...what is the thinking behind this? How did cooking help with the loss of your childhood best friend?
  • You believe in healing foods long before organic foods became “hip”. What are your favorite healing foods and what role do they play for optimal health?
  • What does the future hold after the show?

Christine Silverstein hails from New York City, where she learned very early on in life the power that cooking held; encouraging loved ones to come together around the same table and share their experiences with one another. Good food can always be found at the center of these interactions, from celebrating the fun times to helping heal in the difficult times. According to Christine, serving the meal which she creates for those in her life not only cultivates the depth of these loving connections, but also reminds her how important they are to the human spirit. Being raised with this foundation has carried Christine through one of the most challenging times in her life. The untimely passing of her childhood friend, Lauren Zaleski, left her utterly lost.

Since her passing, Christine chose to embark on a journey to HEAL. “Part of this journey was doing something that scared me, so as to honor the way in which Lauren lived her life...and pushed me to live mine. Auditioning for MasterChef was just that,” said Christine.

According to Christine, “Pushing myself into the fear not only challenged me, but it helped heal me in ways I never thought possible.  Finding strength in my PASSION for cooking good food allowed me to find a new way to live and to celebrate life in my best friend's honor. This is my truth. This is...Food Therapy.”
