Will an Apple a day keep the doctor away during a Pandemic?

There is an old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It was derived from the idea that if you eat healthy foods you will remain healthy. To some extent, it is probably still true, but of course, there are other remedies, other ways to stay healthy.

One way is to avoid unhealthy situations. Don’t go into a dark alley with a roll of cash in your pocket. Don’t play tackle football without a helmet. Don’t go swimming after eating a big meal.

In our new normal of social distancing, hand washing, and Personal Protective Equipment, a lot has changed in business. Some of the processes we have implemented are clearly stop-gap measures. Strategies designed to keep us safe for the short term while we research and create better long-term solutions.

But when you look out toward the future you can recognize that many of these new ways of conducting business will be with us for many years to come. Most will stay with us until the next big event comes along that will require us to again adapt to a new normal.

Before the Corona Virus and Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses were already in the process of implementing faster, cheaper, or less labor-intensive ways to do business.

Electronic documentation, information sharing, and working remotely are all examples of ways in which we have changed. In most cases, those new ways of working will not only become commonplace, but we will also improve on them, making them the preferred way to work.

Later this month I have a doctors’ appointment. I may very well choose to do a virtual appointment. It is only a wellness exam, mostly health questions. The doctor will examine the results of a blood test that I can have done prior to speaking with him. As an added plus, the scale at my house is more favorable than the one in the doctor’s office.

When the doctor asks what I am doing to stay healthy, I will tell him that I am eating an apple every day.

Hi Joseph Domino 480-390-6011, avoid unhealthy situations to keep the doctor away. Eat an apple a day because they are tasty!

Hi Joseph, 
Hey, you're talking my language. I live in the "Apple Capital of the World" (Wenatchee, Washington).

Why is it that the Dr. office scales are calibrated higher than our home scales?

Hi Joseph- I don't eat an apple a day but I do get my share of fruit and vegetables. All we can do is try, right?!

I have a lot of clients tell me that their wellness exams have been virtual, that seems like a good alternative.

During this pandemic, I've increased my vitamins, especially B, C, D, and Zinc. So an apple couldn't hurt.
