Summary

If youre medically curious, then youll love the treasure trove of 
information that Dr. Larry Romane shares in this little book. 
 
This longtime ER doctor has always been surprised at how little people know about medical matters, but he knows that knowledge can be challenging to grasp when doctors call a heart attack an acute myocardial infarction and a simple toothache an anaerobic gingival abscess 
Romane cuts through that jargon to answer questions such as: 

Why is everyone getting diabetes? 
Are brand name medicines safer than generic versions? 
Do you need antibiotics for upper respiratory infections?
 

 
He also shares valuable insights, such as: A pound of fat contains about 3,500 caloriesso cutting 100 calories every day for a year would take off about ten pounds; X-rays may cause future DNA changes in a cell, leading to cancer decades in the future; and only about five percent of dog bites get infected versus sixty percent of cat bitesanother reason a dog is mans best friend. 

 
Youll be surprised by all the medical information you dont know  some of it quite useful  in R U Medically Curious?

    Raul E. Nava always considered Lola Iska to be his true grandmother, even though she joined his family as household help.
    She sparked his interest in relieving the pain of others, but she was never accepted as a healer because that role could only be passed down from father to son. But that didnt stop Raul from learning everything he could from her about herbal treatments, oil massages, and other methods to heal the body and spirit.
    As he grew older, he delved into the finer details of Tuina (a form of massage) and acupuncture  and soon he was helping relieve people of back pains and other body aches they never thought theyd eliminate.
    Over time, he developed a system of back maintenance and body management exercises to help people keep fit. The detailed instructions and photographs included in this self-help book will help you master his method.
    By boosting physical fitness and bringing the body into alignment with spirit, youll not only ease back pain, but youll find relief for the neck, arms, legs, and other areas.
