"For the past 5 years, I had been going to a different medical clinic in Lady Lake...and a friend recommended Dr. Smolarski. On my first visit I was very relaxed and felt like I had known him for many years. The doctor ordered blood tests and the very next day called to say the test showed up something in my liver. He immediately scheduled an ultrasound. The test showed a mass so Dr. Smolarski scheduled an MRI. I had the MRI and the doc said it showed a mass in the liver but also a mass in the pancreas. He immediately called a gastro doctor who the same day scheduled me to see a doctor at Florida Hospital who did an endoscopy and a biopsy. The mass...is very treatable. If it wasn't for Dr. Smolarski's professionalism and promptness, I could have been terminal. Dr. Smolarski has my utmost respect."When we shared this touching letter with him, Dr. Smolarski said:

One possible way is to minimize outdoor activities early in the morning, stay indoors in air-conditioned environment, and wash off quickly when you come indoors. If avoidance is not possible, you may try over the counter antihistamines good for itchy eyes, itchy nose, & sneezing but you need to take them on regular, preventive basis during your individual pollen season which may vary from weeks to months. Steroid nose sprays are one of the best medications available for nasal congestion which used to require a prescription.

Feeling fatigued, dizzy, nauseous and moody? Are you getting headaches? Does your brain feel slowed down? It may be your body telling you to hydrate. Your body uses water for everything it does. Water is important to help you breathe, to help metabolize food and burn fat, to help your brain think and even help you sleep.

Exertional Heat Illness is a continuum, from irritating muscles cramps to life-threatening heat stroke. The American College of Sports Medicine has guidelines to help recognize who is at the greatest risk and what we can do to prevent falling victim to the heat.
Some factors that increase your odds of being affected include:
- Being active outdoors on warm, humid days
- Poor physical fitness
- Being over weight
- Certain medications
- Gradually increase the duration of time spent in the heat and the intensity of the work you are doing. It takes about two weeks for your body to adapt.
- Hydrate before going out into the heat and keep hydrating through out your activity.
- When possible try to plan your outdoor activities when temperatures are at their coolest, early mornings are best.
- Wear clothes that are designed to help keep your body cool.
- If you are beginning to feel exhausted or lightheaded while you are outside STOP what you are doing. Go inside, or get to a shaded area, and cool off with a cold water or sports drink.
