    End of the Year List

    When I ask medical students aspiring to become obstetricians/gynecologists what the one problem they would like to solve in obstetrics and gynecology, a common answer is misinformation. They want to be able to find a way to stop the misinformation on social media so that women do not get hurt. I want to do the same. Keeping My Sisters Alive and Healthy is about providing accurate information so that you can be empowered to make decisions that affect your health. We can all be part of the solution.

    As is done at the end of the year, I share the top five blogs read for the past six months. The information provided is accurate. I stand by my writing because I am committed to Keeping My Sisters Alive and Healthy. And if you are wondering who my sisters are, each of you who reads the blogs and shares the information. We have a universal sisterhood.

    Top five read blogs in descending order:

    5. Happy Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving reminds us of that powerful drug good for our health – GRATITUDE. To get the full health benefits of GRATITUDE, there must be action behind GRATITUDE.  

    4. The Flu Vaccine and More: The flu vaccine might not protect you totally from getting sick, but it takes a severe illness and makes it milder. To protect yourself against the flu, you must take the flu vaccine and do more. In this blog, I explain more about preventing the flu.

    3. Supporting Your Immune System: It is vital that we do all we can to support our immune system so that it can do its job to protect us. Here, I discuss what we need to do to support our immune system, like eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, limiting alcohol use, and much more.

    2. Health Literacy is about Sharing Information: I had been talking about the health benefits of walking, so I was excited when I finally convinced one of my friends to do the half marathon. I hope that any information you find helpful when reading the blogs or reading my books, the latest one – Sincerely, Your Gynecologist– you share the information.

    1. Fruits – So Much To Learn: Fruits are great for your health. I had given myself a fruit challenge. I was supposed to eat a different fruit each day for 365 days. When I wrote this blog, I had gotten to 32 days. I discuss some of the fruits on my journey in this challenge. I only went for 100 days, but it was worth it. I now eat fruits with a different appreciation. The most surprising fruit for me is still the kiwi fruit. This little fruit is packed with many nutrients and is low in calories. I would encourage you to expand your palate.

    Wishing you and your loved ones the best compliments of the season.

    With her trademark wit and straightforward communication, Dr. Osuagwu continues to dole out valuable medical advice using the letter form and addressing women’s health conditions and issues in a method that was praised for its innovative approach in her earlier award-winning book, Letters to My Sisters: Plain Truths and Straightforward Advice from a Gynecologist. In this book, each letter is paired with reference sources and statistics about the condition that is the subject of the letter.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
