Emergency room and sports medicine physician Ara Suppiah, MD (affectionately known as Dr. Ara) says there are ways that you might help keep your immune system healthy and prepared to do its job.
Dr. Ara explained, “As a healthy individual, your goal should be to minimize chronic inflammation, which is mainly driven by unhealthy omega-6 fatty acid levels in the body.
During his career, Dr. Ara has been a physician on the European Tour, multiple European Ryder Cup Teams and most recently on the PGA Tour establishing himself as a pioneer in the fast-developing field of Golf Medicine & Wellness.
Currently, Dr. Ara is a highly sought-after personal physician on the PGA and LPGA Tour, treating an A list roster that includes Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, Steve Stricker, Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan and Anna Nordqvist.
In March 2014, Dr. Ara was appointed as the first Medical Analyst on the Golf Channel in order to share his inside knowledge on various player injuries and how they can be avoided and remedied so viewers at home can take the same advice into account in their day to day routines.
