The reason being barefoot is linked to sickness is two things: people link being cold to getting a cold; and people see kids in developing countries and more rural locations in their own country barefoot and more often sick. In the former case, while being VERY cold for a prolonged time can lead to weakening your immune system, but the reason we get colds ...

Walking barefoot is bad for a kid, really? Being a healthcare provider, I don't think so. But yes, you have to take care that your kid does not touch its foot so as to avoid infection spreading from there to any other site on its body. Let me get you some good references. The first one is here. Tracy Byrne, a podiatrist specializing in podopediatrics, ...

Short answer: No Diseases like flu or cold are caused by viruses or bacteria, not walking barefoot. Disallowing shoes from being on the floor contributes to disease prevention. Our shoes track in everything that we stepped in while we were out and about (think of that dirty public restroom). Studies vary on barefoot benefits and drawbacks so you'll have to ...

personally. I would be upfront and honest, too much alcohol is bad. Occasionally it's good for adults to drink. My daughter and I also share a love for the Historic aspects of why something was invented and why something is important. I haven't spoke to her about alcohol yet, but i will be sure to mention that it was created 1000's of years ago, and it is ...

You said: A standard optical test showed his eyes were not perfect but within normal range for his age. and special glasses that showed his brain was struggling While I am most definitely not a doctor, I believe a little logic is apropos in this case. How can glasses see the brain? See that it is "struggling"? If you peer into the eye, go ...

I wouldn't worry about it until it comes up. Lots of people, especially people who don't drink or who don't drink much, feel they have to 'normalize' alcohol to their children. But many, many people don't drink. Although some aspects of adult society make us think we have to justify the decision not to drink. in fact there is no justification needed for not ...

I say, in a clear firm tone "please can you wash your hands before continuing?" If I wanted to be delicate I would say "Sorry, but I didn't see you wash your hands. Would you mind doing so before you continue? Thanks." In England it is always acceptable to remind clinicians about hand hygiene and patients are encouraged to do so. I would raise a ...

Doctors certainly feel dejected if they are being drawn attention for their hygiene. Being a healthcare provider, I know this. That's because advising something about their profession (how to examine a baby does include washing hands with sanitizer and that's what is taught to all child specialists) is nothing less than advising fish how to swim. It's ...

This is a good question. Well, what I think is you should present 'drink' as a 'drink' and not addiction. A thick line should be drawn between what is drinking as a custom/fun and drinking as a habit. The difference between 'drinking' and 'binge drinking' You may show both the sides of drinking - drinking as a custom that brings people together in any ...

First off, the doctor must wash his/her hands after entering the room, period. The doctor opened the door with his hand, right? That's a (major) point of contagion right there. Unless you're in some futuristic practice with automatic doors, I would never excuse the doctor from not washing post-entering the room. Second, unfortunately, doctor handwashing ...

I would ask in a curious, not attacking way something like : "Don't you need to use these?" (pointing at the sanitizer) "I always thought doctors offices were really picky about those..."
