So, I am sitting at my desk on a rainy morning anticipating the morning rush. I have a new patient in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber and the patient I had scheduled at this time to receive her report of finding called in to postpone due to the flu.

In my suddenly open schedule I determined to start a blog. But, what do I name it? I had a blog before but the name was not only too long but apparently too obscure. Nobody got it. To add insult to injury had a glitch where I couldn’t edit or add pictures. But, in the name of persistence and an outlet for my ideas on health I have tried again.

This time the name I came up with is “Optimal Health.” I use this phrase quite often through the day. I believe the pursuit of optimal health should be one of our top priorities. God gave us these bodies, shouldn’t we take care of them as best as we can?

This name also gives me an opportunity to discuss many aspects of health and health care. By the way, I am open to any suggestions for topics that I can research.

Here it goes!
