Welcome Suzy Cohen, RPh to Total Health Magazine Online.
TWIP: Suzy please share with our readers, who is the woman known as “America’s Most Trusted Pharmacist”?
SC: I’ve been a licensed pharmacist for over 22 years and I am able to share the pros and cons of medication use as well as offer natural substitutions for most any of your health concerns. I graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida in 1989. While I pride myself in ‘thinking outside the pill’ let me just say that I am still very proud to wear my white coat because I realize that there is a time and place for medications. We need to consider all of our options, and often, a combination is best.

Lyle Hurd: Welcome Doctor Roizen, after having the opportunity to interview you on the radio, I’m really pleased to introduce you to our readers.
Recently, Time magazine did an extensive piece on you and the Cleveland Clinic, and what they talked about was this doctor doesn’t want to see you. Now I’ve met a lot of doctors and I’ve always found that they would like to see patients for a couple of reasons, and one is that it helps support the whole business that they’re in. You are Chairman of the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic-
As I finished the final edits to this book, the New York Times featured an in-depth article about the failure of conventional medicine to cure more cancers.
According to the New York Times, adjusting for the size and age of the population, cancer death rates dropped only five percent from 1950 to 2005.
What other technology has performed so miserably over this 55-year period? Would you accept a medical therapy that has not improved much since 1950?
In contrast, the death rate from heart disease dropped 65 percent in that time, and for flu and pneumonia it fell 58 percent.
The New York Times was especially critical of expensive conventional treatments that subject patients to much mutilation and suffering, yet yield survival improvements of only a few months.

A few months ago our good friend Doug Kaufmann, founder and host of the popular daily radio talk show “Know the Cause” and knowthecause.com, e-mailed me the following message: “Go to our Web site and click onto my interview with Suzy Cohen, America’s Pharmacist, watch it, then call me.”
As Doug suggested I accessed the Web site and the interview. The following 20 minutes were an excellent informative dialogue, which I would recommend to our readers and can be accessed on either knowthecause.com or Suzy’s comprehensive Web site dearpharmacist.com.
Then I called Doug whose first words were, “Suzy is truly a modern health care provider. You should really consider her for the cover of an upcoming issue.”

Denise Austin is comfortable using the term anti-aging as she continues strategies for health and fitness that she began at age 25. She told totalhealth that from the research she has done, “Aging is 30 percent hereditary and 70 percent life style. Isn’t it wonderful that we have some control over our aging process?”
“You can turn back the clock,” she says, through exercise and healthy eating, agreeing that “exercise is the ultimate anti-aging pill.”
Both men and women have control over the aging mechanism. For men the biggest danger is developing fat areas around the abdominal areas close to the heart. Says Austin, “What I really promote is good abdominal strength because it is the core of your whole body. If you can keep your abs strong, then most often the rest of your body stays fit.”
