To Your Health: Sobering News On Alcohol

Dr. Alan Safdi, a world-renowned internist and gastroenterologist with encyclopedic knowledge of mind-body wellness and preventative medicine, returns to Telluride Inside… and Out with a series of posts under the banner of “To Your Health.” His blogs feature the most current information in his field: healthy, wellness and longevity.

Dr. Safdi continues this week with a podcast on alcohol.

Some of that learning will also be showcased in three-day seminars Safdi and his partner, radiologist Dr. William Renner, are offering this winter at The Peaks Resort & Spa in Mountain Village to medical professionals, whose participation qualifies them for at least 16 hours of Category 1 CME or CEU credits. The general public is also welcome. The dates of the remaining lectures this winter are Mar. 6 – Mar. 8, 2019; Mar. 27 – Mar. 29, 2019.

Subjects under discussion at the Symposiums will answer other questions such as: What are the risks and rewards of supplements, including multivitamins? Should women be getting regular mammograms? What are the alternatives on the horizon for breast cancer screening? These and other important health-related subjects – micro-nutrients, common medical disorders and nutrition – will be addressed, revealing findings, not opinions, from evidence-based medical research.

And please scroll down to find out about Dr. Safdi’s Live Longer Retreat wellness intensives planned for this coming summer. Those dates are July 21 – July 29, 2019 ; Aug. 11 – Aug. 17, 2019; and Sept. 15 – Sept. 21, 2019.

WebMD recently published an article titled “What Alcohol Does to Your Body.” Bottom line: very little good, lots bad. And the damage begins in the first 30 seconds after your take your first sip. The piece talks about how alcohol interferes with brain function, slows your reflexes and puts you off balance in general. What’s more, all the talk about how wine is good for your heart. Bunk, according to the American Heart Association. And Dr. Alan Safdi, who, full disclosure, is now and has always been a teetotaler.
