I was a nurse in my early years of life and then went back to school to become a doctor. I went to 4 years of premed schooling, 4 years of medical school and 2 years of internship. I have spent years working with oncology and auto-immune diseased patients. I have had years of trying to piece the puzzles together in order to help people. I have looked “out side” the box when it was not common to do so. I have spoken to large numbers of doctors at medical lectures. I have been an educator to non-medical people. I love my work. I know I have lived the life that I was born to live… helping people.
I express myself in this manner because I can not treat or diagnosis you. However, I can do what I love by trying to teach you preventive medicine. In todays world, in the environment we live and breathe, I feel it is becoming more and more important for me to get the word out that we must become more aware of our own health. The current medical system and Obama care is trying to do a good job but it is my opinion that we are far from hitting the mark. The current medical systems are there after you have become sick. We need a division of health care that helps keep you out of trouble.
My goal is to give you simple but scientifically proven facts that you can research and find for yourself. These small simple things may help save your life. One such simple fact is looking at your ear lobes. I know, it may sound silly but there are many tremendous amounts of studies backing this up.
One day while I was in medical school, the professor explained that when a patient presents themselves to the office, we should not just listen to the symptoms they tell us, but to observe what they are not telling us. In other words, look at them. Look at their skin. Is their skin dry, oily, flakey, is there a rash? Look at their hair. Is their hair thick full, thin, spotty, falling out, dry, oily? There is a lot to observe about an individual.
One thing I found fascinating was when he said “look at their ear lobes.” He went on to explain that if you observe a person who has an ear lobe crease, you need to ask other diagnostic questions and perhaps perform other diagnostic workups. People who have ear lobe creases, wether in one ear lobe or both, may have a greater chance of developing coronary heart disease.
The next time I visited my father, I looked at his ear lobes. We have a strong history of stroke problems on my father’s side of the family. I was amazed that he had a deep crease in not only one lobe but both ear lobes. I explained to my father what I had learned and we made him an appointment with Dr Holloway, his doctor.
Dr Holloway did the routine workup on daddy, using a doppler to hear the blood flow in his neck. He diagnosed my father with Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries or plaque buildup). He told my father that he needed a coronary angioplasty immediately. My father was 75 percent occluded on one side and 90 percent occluded on the other side. In other words, my father was a walking time bomb for a stroke, heart attack or aneurysm. Only weeks after daddy’s angioplasty, both creases went away. I was amazed! Looking at my father’s ear lobes could have saved his life. After that, I started looking at everyone’s earlobes.
The earlobe crease is a line that runs diagonally from the bottom of the ear opening to the ear’s lower edge. Another way to describe it is that the crease starts where your ear lobe attaches to the head and angles backwards toward the edge of the ear.
Now, don’t run to the mirror to look at your ear lobes just yet. First, think about what side do you sleep on the most. Could it be a crease from sleeping every night on one side?
If you see a deep crease, don’t panic, but I would suggest that you mention it to your doctor and tell him/her about the article you read.
There are numerous studies from around the world that proves this to be true. All you need to do is google, ear lobe crease, and it will lead you down the rabbit hole of finding these studies.
Happy hunting and live longer by preventing illness.
