Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Education & support: Learning how to make lifestyle changes & having the support of professionals (even better, maybe peers) is what obesity health education can provide. Changing habits can be difficult even for the strongest of wills. Learning tricks & tips & having positive role models & support systems can reinforce behavioral change (i.e., diet changes, exercise regimens, approaches to body image & self esteem.).

GarbageIn-GarbageOut: Think of it like this: to build a strong castle, you want to use strong blocks. High quality building blocks build a stronger, longer-lasting castle. Cheap or weak blocks will decay and break down in short order. Build your castle - your body - with good foods & drinks (strong blocks) which will help it fight off invaders (infections) and last longer (live longer). Exercise & good sleep help, too.

Dental block: Your dentist may be able to help you. Similar to folks who grind their teeth at night, a dental block may help alleviate your cheek chewing. Also, sometimes stress level reduction can help decrease nighttime gnawing.
