Karen Taylor Bass: "You Want Caviar But Have Money For Chitlins: A Smart Do-It-Yourself PR Guide For Those On A Budget (Volume 1)"
Special Guest: Dr. Wilma Hunt-Watts a.k.a. "The Sole Doctor"
DWW: "One of the best things that you can do for your feet, is to love them."
"You need to get up in the morning and look at your feet. Before you go to sleep at night, you need to look at your feet. That is the best protection."
KH: "What are we looking for?"
DWW: Changes that weren't there before, for example, some swelling or moles.
Check the nails but more importantly the skin, especially the soles of your feet.
"You know the sun doesn't get down there but, believe it or not, I've diagnosed a few skin cancers on the bottom of the feet."
Dr. Watts on Diabetes:
It's National Diabetes Awareness Month.
"You can definitely reverse your diabetes, but a lot of people don't take it serious enough." Dr. Watts is a contributing author to "The Virgin Diabetic: Reverse the Effects of Type 2 Diabetes, Reduce Medication, and Improve Your Glucose Levels".
"The most important thing you can do when you're a pre-diabetic is, you have to change everything immediately." "You can stop it."
"Move them around. Exercise your feet."
"With diabetes, you develop plaque in the arteries and that's usually what cuts off the circulation and starts the tissues to start to die."
KH: "I just read an article that said if you sit for 4 hours that you have a higher risk of dying."
