I hope this finds you and your family to be well, and I hope that you are enjoying the long summer days.
My staff and I have updated our website and we are excited about the new changes. Our blog is now integrated into the website, and I will continue to periodically add articles with commentaries that I believe are informative and relevant to your health options.
You can find my website at www.RebeccaElmalehMD.com. Please feel free to share it with family, friends, and acquaintances.
One article that will be posted later this week on our blog will discuss a new and more successful approach to chronic insomnia. Last year, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) declared insufficient sleep to be a public health epidemic, with a significant impact on the nation’s health.
The other article will discuss the unfortunate rise in the widespread infection that is Clostridium difficile. C. difficile infections have tripled in the last decade, are linked to at least 14,000 American deaths each year, and are not declining. In March of this year, the CDC declared that the overuse of antibiotics is fueling a national C. difficile epidemic.
