The Doctors: Summer Body Club At-Home Health & Fitness Program
Cynthia Pasquella, a certified clinical nutritionist, stated that when you become a member of the Summer Body Club, which was created by The Doctors‘ Executive Producer, you receive a customized plan that can help transform your life. Your bad habits can be transformed into ones that will help you reach your goals. Kadee Sweeney, a fitness expert with SBC, loves the exercises because they use a lot of body weight work.
The Summer Body Club is about keeping your body “bikini ready” all year long. Kadee joined the show to explain that people can tailor their own workouts while performing moves that are thoroughly explained, to prevent injuries. Anyone with any fitness level can benefit from SBC!
One such move requires you to hold your arms straight out in front of you while you step backward into a lunge position, while pulling one arm back as if you’re about to shoot a bow and arrow. Pinch your shoulder blades together while keeping your core tight, then step back forward and bring your feet together. Repeat with the other side. You can add a little cardio by bending at the knees to tap the floor in between reps.
The Doctors: Body Weight Exercise For Strong Core
You can also get into a plank position with your shoulders in line with your wrists. Lift one leg off the ground and then bend at the knee to bring your leg in toward your arms. Twist your core slightly and try to tap the opposite elbow with your knee, then bring your leg back and switch sides.
To work your core, get into a crunch position on your back then hold your legs in the air with your knees bent into a 90-degree angle. Lift your shoulder blades off the ground and hold that position as you pump your arms up and down while holding them straight by your side.
The Doctors: Oral & Dental Health As You Age
Switching gears, another aging body part many don’t think of is the mouth. Your teeth, gums, and mouth change as you age. You first don’t want to let your mouth dry out. A dry mouth increases your risk of tooth decay. Additionally, as you age, you’re actually less sensitive to cavities which means you may have a problem and not even know it. All the more reason to keep seeing your dentist! Good oral care keeps your smile bright for a lifetime!

The Doctors: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Drug
The FDA has given a tentative approval for the first drug ever to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. The genetic disease affects one in every 3,500 boys worldwide and causes muscle weakness, loss of movement, and usually death by the age of 25. The FDA gave the approval following direct pleas from patients and physicians but is requiring a larger study because the first clinical trial used only 12 boys. If the study fails to show results, the FDA said it would “withdraw approval of the drug.”
The Doctors: Kellogg’s Eggo Waffle Recall
More than 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles are being recalled because of a possible listeria contamination. Listeria can cause serious and even deadly infections, most commonly in pregnant women, children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. So far, there have been no reported cases of illness. According to Kellogg, “the recall is the result of routine tests” and that they “moved quickly to identify any foods that might be impacted.”
The Doctors: Controversy Over Health Care Of Bombing Suspect
When the NYC bombing suspect was hospitalized following his shoot-out with police, presidential hopeful Donald Trump was quick to say that the suspect would be given “amazing hospitalization” and “the best doctors in the world.” In response, New York governor Andrew Cuomo stated “[America has] a system of jurisprudence. You’re innocent until proven guilty… you have [a] right to hospitalization if you’re ill.”
A South Carolina senator supports Trump’s comments and is asked the Obama administration to suspend the suspect’s constitutional rights. Hillary Clinton said Trump’s comments were “irresponsible, reckless rhetoric.”
