Have A Berry Intoxicating Summer

by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff Riley, DHM

Summertime is an especially bountiful season to enjoy the abundant health benefits of raspberries! These berries are tiny, tasty and tantilizingly colorful and they protect everything from your head to your heart.xz5kf2kikvx5r4kh4risaayccawfwv7t.jpg

Raspberries are also "berry-beneficial" for our health. What makes berries so special is their high levels of phytochemicals; nutrients that help protect cells from damage.

 

  • Berries Help Manage Diabetes: Raspberries are an excellent source of fiber. They rank low on the glycemic index and they're a good fruit option for managing blood sugar levels. According to Copperman, "because they come with fiber, they are beneficial in a diabetic diet as a serving of fruit."
  • Berries Might Prevent Parkinson's: According to a recent study published in the Journal of Neurology, people who eat at least two servings of berries a week, have a 25% less chance of developing Parkinson's Disease.
  • Berries Boost Memory: Studies by the Cleveland Clinic suggest increasing your intake of berries can help slow cognitive decline normally associated with aging.
  • Berries Slow Tumor Growth: Raspberries are a good source of phytonutrients and antioxidants. Rich in ellagic acid, this tannin found in raspberries prevents cell damage from free radicals and slows tumor growth.
  • Fight Cancer with Berries: Research published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis suggests that flavonoids in raspberries may help reduce colon cancer risk.

 

Boost your grill power with this Savory BBQ sauce! This sweet, tangy smoky sauce is terrific brushed on grilled meat or veggies.

 

Raspberry-Ginger BBQ Sauce:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbs. chopped gingerroot
  • 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbs. adobo sauce
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 3 tbs. molasses
  • 1/4 c. minced onion

 

Simmer all ingredients together in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook about 20-25 minutes.

Shopping and Storage Tips:

  • Select plump, brightly colored berries and remove any soft or moldy ones to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Raspberries keep best in a moisture proof container in the refrigerator. Wash them right before eating.
  • To keep raspberries fresh longer, swish them in a basin filled with a solution of three parts water to one part white vinegar.

Meet Dr. Julie Rosenberg, MD - Pharmaceutical executive, author, speaker, and leadership consultant.

HU:  What inspires you?

Answer: I am awed and inspired by the beauty of nature and love the outdoors. I am inspired by helping others to optimize their health and wellbeing and seeing those individuals undergo transformations in their lives to healthier living.

 

HU: What is your biggest achievement to date (personal or professional)?

Answer: Successfully raising a son with autism, while maintaining a full-time career in medicine.

 

HU: What does a typical day look like for you?

Answer: I don’t really have typical days. I exercise and or do yoga in the early morning at least 5 days per week. I work full time in the pharmaceutical industry overseeing two global drug development programs, which keeps me quite busy. I also spend time writing articles and working on my next book, whenever and wherever I carve out time to do so. I try to spend quality time each evening with family and to do at least one thing for myself each day

 

HU: What is your favorite current project and why?

Answer: My favorite current project is ramping up my speaking and writing career – it’s a big job!

 

HU: If you could switch jobs with someone, who would it be and why?

Answer: I am a big fan of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I appreciate the level of responsibility that she has as a Supreme Court Justice, and the positive influence that she has had not only on the law, but also the youth of America. I value that level of leadership and skill in a public service role.

 

HU: What are your biggest professional challenges?

Answer: I work in a very hierarchal and somewhat rigid corporate environment. While I love my work, I don’t like the bureaucracy of much of corporate America. I am a ‘go getter’ and a ‘go giver’ and I like to get things done!

 

HU: What’s the most rewarding aspect about your career?

Answer: Serving patients with cancer worldwide.

 

HU: What is your motto or personal mantra?

Answer: “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” — The Buddha

 

HU: How do you maintain a healthy work/life balance?

Answer: I make exercise and healthy eating a priority. I structure my day so that I wake up early, begin each day intentionally with a short meditation/pranayama practice and then hit the gym. I eat three meals per day and try to make health conscious choices regardless of whether I eat at home or out of my home.

 

HU: What is the greatest obstacle you have overcome?

Answer: My father’s death was very difficult for me, as I was not able to help him to regain his good health after a diagnosis of advanced kidney cancer. He died 6 months after diagnosis, despite receiving appropriate treatment. He had a significant influence on the course of my life and my career choice. My recently released book, Beyond the Mat: Achieve Focus, Presence and Enlightened Leadership Through the Principles and Practice of Yoga is dedicated to him.

 

HU: What do you hope to share with the HU community?

Answer: My work is focused not only on developing new drugs for patients with cancer but on helping people to stay well and develop healthy habits for life. I hope that the HU community will read and share my articles and book, Beyond the Mat, with their constituency.

 

HU: What do you hope to learn/gain from the HU community?

Answer: We are on a collaborative journey which explores the shared purpose improving health and wellness. I do this by both developing drugs for patients with cancer and by helping people to develop healthy habits long term. I would love to connect with the broader HU community as our collective voices and wisdom are most powerful!

 

HU:  I understand that you are a physician executive for a major pharmaceutical company, and, in addition, are a trained yoga instructor. What inspired you to take a deeper look at the principles of yoga and apply them to your business life? 

Answer:  Corporate life can be very demanding and has attendant with it, many uncertainties. Coupled with this, my current position is international in scope, requiring availability well beyond typical business hours. While my goal is to serve patients globally, to do so, I must deal with very complex drug development considerations but also challenging business problems. Yoga initially caused me to pause, and it created some space for me to think, reflect, and exercise my creativity. It led to more flexibility of body and mind. The meditative and breathing exercises helped me to better cope with the demands and crises that came my way. The ‘oneness’ emphasized by yoga led me to redefine how I thought about leadership, and helped me to understand that becoming a highly effective leader is not about getting a position in the C-suite. It can be achieved by anyone, but it takes hard work and discipline.

 

HU:  How does yoga relate to effective business models?

Answer:  Business models built on a hierarchal structure with organized leadership and a guiding principle based on the “bottom line” are no longer popular. 

These models do not prioritize people—you can downsize them, rank order them, get rid of the bottom 10 percent, and take other liberties because in this system people are perceived as commodities. Leaders are now beginning to understand that building a company on connected, organic leadership and ideology of wholeness, not simply the “bottom line,” is actually a recipe for success. This model’s guiding principles are based on people and relationships. The skills and values we learn from our practice of yoga go hand in hand with the success of these principles. 

 

HU:  You talk about Enlightened Leadership in your book. What is Enlightened Leadership?

Answer:  As I mentioned, highly effective leaders aren’t necessarily those in the C-suite. Anyone can become an enlightened leader. Enlightened Leaders are committed to making the world a better place and to ongoing personal growth and transformation. Enlightened leaders are: Compassionate, confident, courageous, humble, intentional, open-minded, passionate, purposeful, self-aware, self-caring, spiritual and visionary. I have a quiz on my website: Are you an Enlightened Leader? See: http://www.julierosenbergmd.com.

 

HU:  What is one major thing that you still struggle with?

Answer:  Patience. I really have to practice this skill. I am not always the best listener. Practicing patience supports me in becoming a better listener and asking questions.  It demands that I take a deep breath and let go of my own impatience to solve problems myself. I continue to work to be objective enough to step back from a situation and remove my own opinions so that I can better see and appreciate it through the lens of another person. I am often in a hurry.  Practicing patience helps me to remember to breathe, slow down and respect the process.

Sometimes you just need to take a breather. Relax. Refresh. Renew. And that’s okay. #lisachilverswellness

Have you noticed that when a colleague says something negative about your work, you can’t get it out of your mind? Yet when three co-workers compliment you on a job well done, you don’t give it much thought.

You can blame your brain for that. Science indicates that the human brain has a negativity bias, which means, according to psychologist Rick Hanson, Ph.D., “the brain is like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive ones.” Because of this bias, you need to intentionally create a high ratio of positive events to negative events.

You can bring more good vibes to your brain through practicing gratitude. You may already be thanking your partner for picking up groceries, but what about expanding your gratitude practice? Have you considered how many people contributed to the coffee you drink every day? The coffee bean farmers, distributers, truck drivers, coffee shop owner, barista, and many others played roles in getting a delicious cup of coffee in your hands.

With Thanksgiving around the corner in the United States, it’s a good time to enhance your day-to-day life through giving thanks. Research indicates that gratitude practices boost emotional well-being as well as physical health. The following are 25 easy ways to make gratitude a part of your day.

1. Send a Text Message

A simple “thank you for making my life brighter” text message can go a long way.

2. Keep a Gratitude Journal

Spend a few minutes each night jotting down three to five highlights from your day.

3. Pause Before Meals

Take a quiet moment of mindfulness before digging in, and silently thank everyone involved in making the food from the farmer to the preparer.

4. Run Errands with Gratitude

Make a point to thank each cashier, bank teller, and grocery bagger for helping you get through your errands. Your gratitude will no doubt enhance their days as well.
