Did You Know?

Are You A Cyberchondriac? By Simon Murray

I

n today’s Wikiworld, information is being created, shared and absorbed in minutes— scratch that, seconds— across the Web at lightningfast speeds. Typically we know this to be a good thing: The Internet allows for unbridled communication and sharable knowledge on a massive scale. And the truth is the open nature of the Web has spurred education, connected business, toppled dictators. But a free-range medium accessible by the public can be both a gift and a curse. Especially when it comes to our health, where the unsupported decisions we make, if wrong, can lead to serious injury—or much worse. Americans are more health conscious than ever. Thanks in part to the technology at our fingertips we’re watching what we eat, tracking workouts, counting calories and generally leading a healthier lifestyle. On the Apple App Store, for example, there are more than 9,000 apps that pertain to health. Online, consumers with health care questions are using search engines that send them to WebMD, Mayo Clinic and Everyday Health. While some medical apps and websites are resources specifically for doctors and med school students, most are utilities intended to improve the wellbeing of the public at large.

4 Healthy Living • 2013

What’s happening, however, is the opposite in some cases—and here’s the problem. Some of us are turning to our smartphones or the Web to answer our health-related questions—with all-too-frequent unhealthy results. “Cyberchondria” is a real condition affecting millions of Americans and you may have fallen victim yourself. Here’s an example: Type the phrase “stomach ache”—a common ailment with many different causes— into Google. Your query will be met with a barrage of answers, from the matronly “None of us likes an upset stomach,” to the grave “Abdominal pain is a common symptom associated with transient disorders or serious disease.” So which one describes what’s happening to you? Cyberchondria is a neologism that explains the growing phenomenon described by journalist Lois Rogers as “the deluded belief that you suffer from all the diseases featured on the Internet.” According to a 2008

study conducted by Microsoft researchers Ryen White and Eric Horvitz, self-diagnosing a symptom using a search engine has the potential to increase anxiety in those lacking proper medical education or training. In the study, 500 Microsoft employees were surveyed on their experiences in searching for health-related information on the Web and a whopping nine out of ten of those employees said that searching for basic medical information led to researching a more serious condition, even though none of the participants described any excessive health concerns at the onset of the study. The Internet is completely ingrained in our everyday lives, and this has a direct affect on the way we understand our bodies, interact with doctors and learn about treatments (see page 32). With sound judgment, there’s a wealth of medical information on the Web that can assist people in making smart, rational decisions when it comes to their health. But remember that nothing should substitute the care and guidance that you’ll receive from a medical professional. If you’re spending hours searching for health care advice online, it’s time to consult with a trusted physician. That’s always a knowledgeable resource you can trust.

he is board certified and specializes in minimally invasive surgical procedures to correct pelvic pain, endometriosis, abnormal bleeding and other causeconcerning medical conditions. Using her knowledge and experience, Dr. Abeysinghe expertly blends highly developed technical skills with genuine compassion to create a unique and collaborative relationship with her patients, and is adept at working with women with diabetes, hypertension and other medical issues that can sometimes complicate pregnancies. “With treatments and technologies constantly evolving, it’s important to me that my patients are receiving the best and most thorough care possible.” In recent years, advancements in treatments for women’s health issues have greatly reduced recovery time—even for the more complicated cases—so patients can usually return home the same day after a surgical procedure. One such example

of these positive innovations is laparoscopic surgery.

“It’s important to me that my patients are receiving the best and most thorough care possible.” “Being able to skillfully perform minimally invasive hysterectomies for appropriate patients minimizes recovery time to two weeks so that patients can get back to their lives and families quickly and with less pain medication as well,” says Dr. Abeysinghe. Dr. Abeysinghe has been recognized with two Patient’s Choice Awards—a program where patients voluntarily submit unsolicited reviews of physician performance—as well as with a Special Excellence in Endoscopic Procedures award from her peers at the American Association of Gynecologic Laparascopists.

R

ecently, his two offices joined the Advocare network of pediatricians, family practice physicians and specialists, which he says provide a better continuity of care because patients can find top quality generalists and specialists without having to go outside the group. He adds that Advocare has strict credentialing, continuing education requirements and policies that ensure a high level of medical care is delivered to all patients. “We’ll be opening a third office in Voorhees with late hours until 11pm or midnight so patients don’t have to go to the emergency room if someone gets ill in the evening,” says Dr. Mirmanesh. Prior to establishing a private practice, Dr. Mirmanesh began his career in the Newborn Intensive Care

Units (NICU) at Virtua Memorial in Mount Holly and Easton Hospital in Pennsylvania, where he served as Medical Director of both NICU units. Currently, Dr. Mirmanesh is a clinical assistant professor of pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine and has recently invited his son, John, also a pediatrician, to join his thriving practice. “This is a very exciting time in my life,” Dr. Mirmanesh says.

Safe and extremely effective treatments are available.”

Food and seasonal allergies are increasing dramatically. Common food allergies include cow’s milk, tree nuts, eggs, wheat, soybeans, and shellfish. Tree pollen levels are extremely high each Spring and often incapacitate severely allergic patients. There are many excellent remedies available which can minimize seasonal allergy symptoms. Asthma is the most common respiratory problem in New Jersey,

but fortunately there are many treatment options that can control symptoms. At Allergy & Asthma Specialists, pulmonary testing is performed and this allows the physicians to determine a patient’s response to medication and determine proper dosing. Using today’s preventative strategies, frequent emergency room visits and hospitalization for asthma is a thing of the past.

ocusing solely on the diagnosis, treatment and surgery of the retina, Dr. Lalin is an undisputed expert in the treatment of macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. According to Dr. Lalin, recent medical advances in the treatment of macular degeneration can slow down or halt vision loss in this common, visually devastating disease that can affect our ability to read or even recognize faces over time. In addition, the introduction of advanced, 25 and 27 gauge microincisional surgical instruments over the last several years have also greatly enhanced our ability to treat retinal detachments, macula holes, and epiretinal membranes with minimally invasive outpatient surgery. While at Columbia Medical School

and Residency, Dr. Lalin had the privilege of studying under the legendary retinal surgeon, Dr. Stanley Chang and received the Alvin Behrens Prize for the most outstanding graduate entering the field of ophthalmology. After his residency training at Columbia, Dr. Lalin spent two more years learning the nuances of medical and surgical management of retinal disease at the nation’s oldest eye hospital, the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

ased in Manalapan, Dr. Lisa Silbret’s and Dr. Alan Schechter’s practice offers individualized treatments for skin cancer detection and the effects of aging. “When patients come into the office, I want them to be comfortable. There is a lot of anxiety about cosmetic procedures and no one wants to look fake or plastic. I believe that nothing is more important than helping someone feel better about themselves. My goal is to restore a youthful appearance in a way that looks entirely natural. ” As the daughter of an artist mother and physician father, Dr. Silbret’s decision to specialize in cosmetic dermatology was a natural progression for her. “I love how the knowledge of science and anatomy blend so perfectly with the art of fillers, Botox/Dysport and lasers. I can then use this art of facial sculpturing to create a natural and youthful appearance.” After graduating from The University of Pennsylvania, she pursued her career in medicine

by attending The Albert Einstein College of Medicine where she received her medical degree. She completed her medical internship at The New York Hospital of Cornell University Medical Center and trained at the Memorial Sloan Kettering. In addition, Dr. Silbret did research at Rockefeller University, investigating strategies for the treatment of melanoma. During her dermatology residency at Albert Einstein, she was honored to be chosen as Chief Resident. “Aging gracefully means something different for every person. Some patients might simply want to improve their complexion or erase a few brown spots requiring chemical peels and a good skin care regimen. While for others, a combination of procedures can take years off by erasing facial wrinkles and restoring volume for a refreshed appearance.” “Beautiful skin is healthy skin. Protecting your skin with a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, wearing sun protective clothing, and visiting your dermatologist regularly can keep you looking and feeling your best.” Lisa Silbret, MD, FAAD

Power Foods » ALMONDS are a must-have in your pantry and the perfect snack to curb cravings. They’re also a delicious source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Almonds can help you build muscle, beat premature aging, lose weight and lower your risk for cancer, heart disease and diabetes. » AVOCADOS Whether fruit or vegetable, avocados are the new fad on menus. But not only are they the perfect complement to salads, sandwiches and chips, they’re also a much-needed addition to maintaining a healthy body. Avocados support cardiovascular health, contain nutritious mono-saturated fats, fiber and vitamins A, B6, C, E and K. » BEANS are great in soups, dips and salads, but they do much more than heighten the taste of food. Black, lima, pinto, navy and kidney beans aid muscle building and weight loss, and regulate digestion. These small vegetables contain a secret weapon of nutrients—fiber, iron, protein and B vitamins. » BERRIES If what you’re eating has the word “berry” in it, generally, it means it’s packed with antioxidants that help prevent carcinogens, strengthen the heart and increase brainpower. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries are also rich in fiber and vitamins C and K. » SALMON Although it’s a known diet trick for celebrities, salmon has additional benefits that some people may overlook. Eating fish protects skin and hair cells, lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer due to omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon has also been called a “brain food” because it increases neurological functioning.

EAT THIS! One thing surely everyone knows by now is that living a healthier lifestyle is more than just cutting calories out of your diet; what you eat has a direct effect on your body and well-being. The next time you take stock of what’s in your refrigerator at home, make a mental note to check for what some doctors and dietitians are referring to as “power foods.”

» SPINACH Popeye was right in teaching children the benefits of spinach. This leafy green is a multivitamin for the body containing A, C, K, E and folate, while also providing a weapon against skin and breast cancer. Spinach is dense in calcium and magnesium that helps slow down the degeneration process as you age. » WHOLE GRAINS Remember how you passed on brown rice, whole-grain pasta and quinoa? You won’t anymore when you learn that it helps reduce belly fat, provides essential amino acids, antioxidants, phytochemcials, fiber, vitamins and minerals. » YOGURT Whether you’re snacking on fat-free yogurt or Greek yogurt, you’re still giving your body a generous source of protein and probiotics that boost your immunity system. Yogurt also breaks down carbohydrates and supports a healthy digestive system and colon.

Your Health

The

21 Century st

Doctor-Patient Relationship By Simon Murray

B

ig things are happening to the healthcare system in this country. But you already knew that. Healthcare is an issue with farranging consequences whose effects can literally be seen at this point, with an impasse played out on the national stage. But as everyone knows by now, debating until one’s blue in the face won’t change the fact that health

32 Healthy Living • 2013

will always be a personal issue, which, at the end of the day, comes down to two people: you and your physician. While public health policy is brought about by Congress—there is a different process happening right at this very moment, even in places such as your doctor’s office waiting room, that is changing the way we interact with healthcare professionals, family physicians

and hospitals. The 21st century is revolutionizing the doctor-patient relationship, with the future promising to evolve this important bond with the help of today’s innovative technology. In 1996, the Institute of Medicine, an independent, nonprofit organization established a committee with the goal of assessing and eventually improving the


nation’s healthcare system. In their findings, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century (2001), the committee stressed a series of reforms that needed to happen at the very root of the system. Prophetically, the authors wrote, “Information technology, including the Internet, holds enormous potential for transforming the health care delivery system.” That change has come, and it’s influence is empowering individuals who are more likely to stay connected to their doctors and informed while making important decisions about their health. Before the Internet, accessing medical information was incredibly difficult, so patients had little choice but to accept the traditional doctorpatient relationship: Wherein the doctor called the shots, and it was up to the patient to follow the advised treatment. However now, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, one in three adults goes online to diagnose a medical condition they or someone else may have. It was only after research that half of those decided to follow up with a medical professional to discuss their potential condition. Aside from using the Internet to educate ourselves, we are also using technology to stay connected to physicians, who increasingly have shifted into the role of healthcare advisors. With this new patientcentered approach, patients are telling doctors their priorities and getting all the information they

“Information technology, including the Internet, holds enormous potential” need to weigh various options. And staying informed is easy, thanks to doctors offices that are communicating through text, email and conducting appointments via Skype and other video messaging services. The relationship doctors have with their patients is at the very core

element of quality health care. With technology increasing the doctorpatient interaction inside and outside of the waiting room, the 21st century doctor’s office is evolving to meet the demands of those who hopefully will not have to come through its doors. Rest assured, however, they’ll be ready when you do.

Weekend

Must-Play Golf Courses By Michael Scrivner

F

or five days in August, the LIBERTY NATIONAL GOLF COURSE in Jersey City played host to The Barclays, a tournament exclusively open to the top PGA ranked golfers as the first event of the FedExCup playoffs. With a mile-long waterfront view along the Hudson River that includes the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty on many of its approach shots, Liberty National is a stunning example of how New Jersey is not so subtly differentiating itself from the golf courses of other states. While the rest of the golf world might just be waking up to the resplendent greens across the Garden State, don’t be the last person you know to experience one of these fine courses. Many of which, not surprisingly, may be a lot closer than you think. Golf in New Jersey would be lacking in its impressive modern day credentials if a Philadelphian by the name of George Arthur Crump had never hunted in the thickets of Camden County. In response to the growing inadequacy of Philadelphia’s golf courses, Crump and a group of amateur golfers established the PINE VALLEY GOLF CLUB in 1913, amidst more than 184 acres of scrub and sandy soil in southern New Jersey’s pine barrens. Oddly, it would be Crump’s first and last attempt at designing a golf course. The ingenious design principles that Crump introduced remains the lasting legacy of Pine Valley—to this day considered one of the most challenging golf courses

34 Healthy Living • 2013

ever created, consistently ranked by Golf Magazine as the top course in the world. Because the board of directors must invite new members to join, playing even a round at Pine Valley is often considered any golfer’s unattainable dream. Consider going on the final round of The Crump Cup, when the public is allowed to view tournament play and tour the course. While Pine Valley Golf Club is the most respected private course of all time, BALLYOWEN GOLF CLUB in Hamburg is considered one of the best public courses in the nation. Crystal Springs Golf Resort, which features an impressive seven courses of varying difficulty, architecture and landscapes, is where Ballyowen Golf Club has placed its pins. Inspired by the Celtic designs of the world’s first golf courses, renowned golf architect Roger Rulewich decorated his course with gently rolling hills and fairways that are nearly devoid of trees. Even the sparse buildings, which include a windmill and the clubhouse, are also built of dark brick and wood that immediately conjure images of Ireland. Ballyowen Golf Club might not be as famous as Pine Valley, but its beauty and accessibility make it a must play for any true golf lover. Unlike Crystal Springs Golf Resort, Golf Digest has named KNOLL GOLF CLUB the No. 1 municipal golf course in New Jersey. The 360-acre club is located in the woodlands of Parsippany and has both a

Knoll East and a Knoll West course. As a par 70 course at 6,752 yards from the blue tees, Knoll West keeps the length of a traditional course while taking two strokes from the average par of 72. These two factors make this bunker-filled and wooded course extremely challenging. UPPER MONTCLAIR COUNTRY CLUB in Clifton is another northern New Jersey course that demands attention. The club features a 27-hole championship course that has hosted tournaments for all three professional golf associations. Designed in the early 20th Century, Upper Montclair Country Club only consisted of five holes before more land was acquired in the 1920s. Designer A.W. Tillinghast was the mastermind behind the small lush fairways and dense foliage—both professionals and amateurs respect this unforgiving course. Along with Ballyowen, Upper Montclair Country Club, Knoll Golf Club and Pine Valley, New Jersey is home to TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF CLUB in Bedminster as well as the famous ARCHITECT’S GOLF CLUB in Lopatcong and many, many more. California and Florida generally receive all of the praise as the best golf destinations in the country, but this appears to be a product of their relatively stable weather conditions— Pebble Beach Golf Links and TPC Sawgrass are spectacles in their own right, but New Jersey’s impressive array of courses may just out drive them on any given day.
