#Fentanyl accounts for 67% of overdose deaths in the past year, with over 100,000 people in the United states dying of drug overdose or drug poisoning. The fentanyl crisis is truly the number one public health crisis that America faces. Many of these deaths are related to fentanyl being mixed in with other illegal drugs like heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana. It's being found that many users are completely unaware that they are actually being exposed to fentanyl. Small amounts of fentanyl can be toxic causing death.George Joseph, founder and CEO of Positive Recovery Centers based in Houston TX, joins us today on the radio.

What is a FODMAP Diet?
Season 8, Ep. 5
So what is a FODMAP diet? FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols, which are short-chain carbohydrates (sugars) that the small intestine absorbs poorly. Some people experience digestive distress after eating them. Some of the symptoms that people may develop, if they are intolerant of these foods high in fodmap, include stomach bloating and distention, intestinal gas and flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, and cramps.With a low FODMAP diet, you are eliminating foods that are high in FODMAP. Once your intestinal symptoms improve, it would be appropriate to slowly resume their consumption to see which one of these foods causes you intestinal problems. If you're fortunate to identify these foods, you would want to avoid or limit them while not worrying too much about the other foods that aren't problematic for you.In this podcast, I speak with Lauren Mahesri, registered dietitian with Liver Specialists of Texas. Lauren will outline the approach to intestinal gas, the low FODMAP diet, the pros and cons of such a diet, and how to approach certain food sensitivities. For more information on FODMAP diet and foods that are both high and low, follow the links that we include for you below.FODMAP FoodsIntestinal GasIrritable Bowel SyndromeHigh and Low FODMAP Foods#fodmap#intestinalgas#liverspecialistsoftexas#nutrition

Career Success and Wellness Success?
Season 8, Ep. 3
This week we share with you a brief podcast episode which came from this past Sunday evening. On the radio, I talked about the various mentoring activities I been involved in over the past several years, working with high school students through young entrepreneur's. The theme of personal and business success is commitment, a sincere desire to achieve, put in the time, and do not take any shortcuts. It dawned on me that these same methodologies applied to your own good health. To remain healthy, you need to remain committed. You also need a sincere approach to your own health and not take shortcuts. Just like working towards a successful career takes time, not putting in the time for her own health is associated with less than adequate results.Feel free to share this podcast with those you feel would benefit most. Of course we want you to follow us along on your favorite podcast site making sure you never miss a single episode.#personalsuccess#personalwellness#healthcarementoring

Ready for Emergency Surgery?
Season 8, Ep. 1
Happy 2023! For this podcast episode, I want to share with you an unexpected medical emergency I faced right before Christmas, which warranted emergent surgery. All turned out well, and on the grand scheme of things it brought to light an important health and wellness concept I want to share with you all.Getting perfectly honest with yourself, are you, right now, prepare to undergo any kind of emergency surgery, emergency procedure, or face an unexpected health crisis? It's very well known that if you are not in optimal medical health, any type of minor emergency that you face is going to be associated with unwanted complications. Those individuals that have chronic medical conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, liver disease, and kidney disease are going to fare far worse than those without these chronic conditions. So with that said, what are you doing to prepare yourself for these possible scenarios? The vast majority of chronic illnesses can be medically managed (or better yet prevented) reducing the risk of these medical/surgical complications. With the New Year starting, this would be a great objective for all of us. Take inventory, see what health and wellness issues need to be addressed, and get it taken care of.Where to find Dr. Joe Galati and his team:Dr. Galati's newsletter sign-upMedical Practice: Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site: Eating Yourself SickFacebook: Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion.
