ASK THE DENTIST...WITH DR. DAVID REICHWAGE

Details

As a practicing Fort Wayne family dentist, I see daily the damage to health and appearance caused by the decision to smoke. My team and I stay on the leading edge of advances in dental science, but the explosive rate of advancement in all health sciences cannot begin to compensate for the devastating impact of smoking to our body. I want to focus this month's column on...

Deadly Denial: What baby boomers should know about stroke

A recent American Stroke Association survey shows that many baby boomers do not recognize all five of the major warning signs for stroke. In a February 2003 survey of 1,000 adults, the American Stroke Association found that most baby boomers do not know all the stroke warning signs and do not know what to do if someone has a stroke. They are moving closer to the age — 55 — when their own stroke risk will begin to double with each...

HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH

Continued from last week...A little bit of this or that and I could nurse a drink all night without throwing up. In no time at all I had arrived, or so I thought. I had a bunch of friends to hang around with. We did exciting things: skipping school, taking road trips, and drinking. It was great for a while.

I'm a nail technician and I'm amazed that so many of my clients drive nice cars, pay attention to their appearance, take care of their nails, hair, and do whatever they can to look good or younger (many have had face lifts) but they're oblivious to the appearance of their teeth!

HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH

Here's To Your Health has another personal story this week, it's titled "My Chance To Live," from the Fourth Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous. AA gave this teenager the tools to climb out of her dark abyss of despair: "I came through the doors of Alcoholics Anonymous at age seventeen, a walking contradiction. On the outside, I was the portrait of a rebellious teenager, with miles of attitude to spare. On the inside, I was suicidal, bloodied, and beaten. My stride spoke of a confidence I...

This weeks "Here's To Your Health" is another personal story and it's from a fellow living in Bucharest Romania:

I never thought I'd be making address labels to send someone mail in jail. But today, I put my computer skills to work and made labels for my brother. I write him a few times a week, and it is to the point where it's easier to make labels so I don't have to keep writing the address over and over again. ‑Of course, there are many things I told myself I'd never do, but one by one I...
