Doctor Practices What She Preaches!
Age management doctor and Late Night Health Radio contributor Michale “Mickey” Barber, MD tells her patients to exercise and watch what they eat! She does and at 59 she still looks like a 9 on the Richter scale!
In a competition last year, Dr. Barber was a super WOW, showing off on the runaway like fitness buffs 30 years younger. The audience was amazed at her bikini poses, applauding as she strutted her stuff.
While many doctors tell patients what they should do and not to do what they the doctors do themselves, Dr. Barber goes against the current tide. If she tells a patient to do something, chances are she’s done it herself. Dr. Barber walks the walk, from watching her weight and regular exercise, to balancing a life between work and family. Dr. Barber walks the walk.
While the medical community promises anti-aging results, Dr. Barber recommends managing the aging process. Regular visits to your doctor are first on her list, checking to make sure everything is normal. If something isn’t quite right, you then have the opportunity to work on it.
For example, Dr. Barber found her cholesterol levels a bit high. Her doctor recommended a statin drug. At first she tried a variety of natural products, but now takes a minimal dose of a statin, while supplementing with Omega fish oils and garlic.
Dr. Barber talks with Late Night Health Radio host Mark Alyn about how baby boomers should manage life as the years go by on Late Night Health (http://latenighthealth.com). The weekly program shares information about health and lifestyle from the viewpoint of the consumer, offering various, unique topics from sex to energy healing.
