Dr. Andrew Ordon: Char Margolis Psychic
A series of viewers complained that they always make bad decisions when it comes to dating, careers, and friends. Dr. Andrew Ordon welcomed psychic Char Margolis to talk about using your intuition to make better decisions.
Char Margolis said that everyone has intuition, and she understands the skepticism that surrounds this topic. She said we make decisions using logic, common sense, and intuition. But if your gut feeling goes against that, you have to learn to trust it and act upon it.
She asked how many people have ignored their gut and suffered the consequences. Dr. Lisa Masterson said, medically, there is truth to the theory of intuition. Oxytocin is what gives you that butterflies in the stomach feeling.
The Doctors TV: Char Margolis & Intuition
Char Margolis did a psychic reading on an audience member. I never know what to believe when it comes to these things.The audience member seemed to be genuinely blown away by Char’s ability to tell her details about her family. Either she is a great actress who’s in on this, or Char really does have some unexplainable skill.
The studio audience received copies of Char’s book, but you can click here to purchase Love Karma for yourself.
The Drs TV Show: Whole Grains vs. Refined Grains
Adding whole grains to your breakfast can make a big difference in your health. Dr. Jim Sears said that choosing whole grains versus refined grains can help you manage your weight, keep your heart healthy, and reduce your cancer risk.
Dr. Travis Stork said you can choose whole wheat toast and bagels instead of white toast or plain bagels. You can also find whole grain cereals, but you have to check the label and ingredients to make sure you’re getting whole grains.
Dr. Travis Stork: Whole Grains & Nutrition Labels
The Doctors said to look for the words Whole Grain in the first item on the Ingredients list. You can also look for a check mark on the box of some cereals, which indicates Whole Grain is the first ingredient. Dr. Stork said the USDA recommends that everyone get three servings of whole grains each day.
One serving of whole grain is about one slice of bread, so you can get two servings by making a sandwich.You can also get a serving of grain from a half cup of oatmeal or a cup of whole grain cereal. 40% of us aren’t getting whole grains at all.
At dinner, you can choose whole grain pastas or dinner rolls. Wheat flour is not whole wheat flour, so there again it’s important to check the ingredients. Less common but excellent ways to get whole grains into your diet include quinoa, barley, and wild rice.
The Doctors: Color Coded Hospital Scrubs
Have you ever had trouble telling the nurses and doctors apart from the cleaning staff at a hospital? It can be difficult if everyone is wearing the same color of scrubs. Dr. Travis Stork said some hospitals are switching to color coded uniforms to help patients and visitors tell who’s who in the hospital.
A color coded scrubs study at Miami Valley Hospital “improved patient and staff satisfaction by between 3 and 8%.” This can also save time and reduce confusion in an emergency.
Finally, Dr. Travis Stork randomly added that you can switch up your workout to confuse your body and power through a plateau.
