Weight and Your Health 

As the second leading preventable cause of death, obesity is one of the most serious health problems our society is facing today. Being overweight or obese significantly raises ones risk for many diseases including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, stroke, liver disease, respiratory problems, arthritis, and infertility. 



Are you overweight?

Medical professionals use a system called the Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine whether or not an individual is within a normal weight range for their height. People who maintain their weight within a normal BMI rage tend to live the longest and have the least amount of weight-related medical problems. 

  • Normal Weight = BMI of 18.5-24.9
  • Overweight = BMI of 25-29.9
  • Obese = BMI of 30 or greater 

Use the chart below to determine your BMI using your height and weight measurements and see if you qualify for the Medical Weight Loss Program!



Health Awareness

Health & Beauty

The rays that come from the sun, UVA and UVB rays, are well known to cause damage to our skin. From early aging all the way to skin cancer, there are many reasons to protect yourself from the sun’s rays.


Don’t forget, sunscreen doesn’t last forever! You should be using approximately a full ounce on your body and about 1 teaspoon on your face each time you apply.

Don’t let a cloudy day affect your decision to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. The less you protect your skin, the more prone you are to sunburn, cancer and aging signs. 


But before you think you know enough just because you apply sunscreen, think again! Knowing the difference between UVA and UVB rays can help you pick out the best sunscreen for you and give you insight into just what each ray is responsible for.


UVA Rays
  • UVA rays are constantly present, no matter the season or the weather. 
  • If you think you can’t get sun damage on a cloudy day, tell that to the UVA rays. They are so powerful that they also penetrate some clothing and even glass. 
  • Also UVA rays are the rays responsible for the signs of aging because they are able to penetrate much deeper into the surface of the skin, damaging the cells beneath.
  • While people think their skin looks younger because it’s tan, the reality each, each tan is giving your skin irreversible damage, and you will see it’s damage later in life.
  • When you think of UVA rays, think sun spots, leathery skin and wrinkles.

While people think their skin looks younger because it’s tan, the reality each, each tan is giving your skin irreversible damage, and you will see it’s damage later in life.


UVA rays used to be considered relatively safe, in terms of the sun’s rays, and that’s why tanning beds, which use UVA rays, took center stage. 

But we now know that using tanning beds before the age of 30 can actually increase your risk of skin cancer by 75%!



UVB Rays
  • UVB Rays are the rays you can blame when you get a sunburn. 
  • Unlike UVA rays, these rays aren’t always the same strength year round 
  • They’re more prevalent in the summer months
  • They are able to reflect off of water or snow, so it’s always important to protect yourself year-round.
  • UVB rays are responsible for causing most skin cancers. 
  • While large doses of UVA rayscan contribute to cancer, it’s the UVB rays that are commonly to blame.
  • When you think of UVB rays, think sun burn and cancer.

If you’ve heard the advice to stay out of the sun though the mid day hours, it’s the UVB rays you’re trying to avoid. 

They are most prevalent mid day, so if you must be out at that time, protect your skin.


How to Protect Your Skin

All sunscreens protect against UVB rays, but it wasn’t until recent years that sunscreen started including UVA protection. And in fact, not all sunscreens do. Look for one that specifically says UVA/UVB or “broad spectrum coverage” on the bottle.



Use a minimum of SPF 15 and reapply every hour or two at the very most. 

To see how long your sunscreen will last under perfect conditions, take the number of SPF and multiply it by 10. That is the length of time you’d be safe from the sun’s rays. 


 (In perfect conditions – No water or sweating taken into account here.)

For example: SPF 20 x 10 = 200 minutes of sun protection

Houston Health Concern

Houston We Have a Problem!

Now that summer is here so are the swarmers! Mosquitoes are buzzing around every inch of the city. The formula is pretty simple. Take cover of your skin after it rains.


For many, mosquitos may give them a simple bite but for some. they can cause serious allergic reactions. Red skin, itching, swelling and painful burning are just a few of the symptoms you can potentially experience. 




  • FOR PROTECTION AGAINST TICKS AND MOSQUITOES: Use a repellent that contains 20% or more DEETfor protection that lasts up to several hours. Products containing DEET include Off!, Cutter, Sawyer, and Ultrathon.
  • FOR PROTECTION AGAINST MOSQUITOES ONLY: Products with one of the following active ingredients can also help prevent mosquito bites. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection.
    • DEET
    • Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin. Products containing picaridin include Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and Autan [outside the US])
    • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or PMD (Products containing OLE include Repel and Off! Botanicals)
    • IR3535 (Products containing IR3535 include Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart)
  • Always follow product directions and reapply as directed.
    • If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen first and insect repellent second.
    • Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, and mouth.
  • Consider using permethrin-treated clothing and gear (such as boots, pants, socks, and tents). You can buy pre-treated clothing and gear or treat them yourself.
    • Treated clothing remains protective after multiple washings. See the product information to find out how long the protection will last.
    • If treating items yourself, follow the product instructions carefully.
    • Do not use permethrin directly on skin.

  • Prevent mosquito bites.
    • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats.
    • Stay and sleep in screened or air-conditioned rooms.
    • Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. 

  • If you are bitten by mosquitoes:
    • Avoid scratching mosquito bites.
    • Apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to reduce itching

The IntelliBED Special Offer

Many of your know that I have been recommending intelliBED for some time now.
Sleep Genius is a sound-based sleep aid used nightly to gently train your brain into natural healthy sleep rhythms. Your ears hear soothing music, but your brain hears scientifically developed neurosensory sounds helping you get to sleep faster, sleep deeper and stay asleep longer, so you awake feeling refreshed. With over 1 million customers, Sleep Genius is the most scientifically advanced sleep program in the world, and was developed following their research helping NASA get astronauts to sleep in space. Sleep Genius is just another great tool, along with intelliBED, to help you achieve the best sleep and health of your life.



     1.  How well do you sleep? 

     2.  Do you toss and turn? 

     3.  Do you ever awaken with stiffness, soreness, numbness or pain?


If you don’t sleep well and the answer is yes to ANY of those other questions, very likely you need a new mattress. This is the same bed the physicians of Doctors Clinic Houston sleep on, so you know it’s good!  



 “There are few things more priceless than a great night’s sleep.”

We know many of you have trouble sleeping and most people don’t understand that their mattress has a big effect on quality of sleep. Also, the quality of our sleep can have a powerful effect on our overall health. After much consideration and research, below are the reasons why we recommend intelliBED over any other mattress. 

* This company has found a replacement material for foam to cushion the body called Intelli-Gel.  

* Intelli-Gel was created by engineers to provide the body with the most pressure relief possible and has been used to treat burn victims for decades. 

* My experience is that Intelli-Gel cushions better than any other mattress I have experienced, which reduces the amount you toss and turn, allowing you to stay in the deep healing stages of sleep longer. 

* It provides better alignment support than any other mattress I’ve looked at, which is necessary to hold adjustments. 

* Unlike beds that use a lot of foam, intelliBEDs provide consistent support and is guaranteed for 30 years. Who wouldn’t love not having to purchase a new bed every few years? 

* They don’t use any toxic materials in the build out of their beds or any chemical fire retardants, which I know is important to a lot of you. 

As a reminder, you can receive a 10% discount for using mentioning my name or using our code plus IntelliBED offers a 60-day 100% money back guarantee, including free return shipping. 

They prefer you to call (888) 435-2339 so they can have their sleep advisers walk you through which intelliBED is best for you. You can also go online

Doctor’s Clinic Houston has taken the time to research the major mattress retail products and has identified intelliBED as the first true medical-grade sleep surface available for home use. By using co-polymer intelli-Gel® in place of foam,  intelliBED provides superior comfort and support without harmful off-gassing and they wear 2-3 times better than any of the foam mattresses. Deep, healing sleep is fundamental to your health.
