You're Healed If You Think You Are

As research for my upcoming book The Prescription: 5 Spiritual Steps To Healing Yourself From Illness, Trauma, Or Loss, I have been digging deep into the medical literature, going back as far as the 1920’s into medical journals in order to find cold, hard science to prove what I have long believed - that we hold within us self-healing superpowers that are stronger than any chemotherapy and more effective than any surgery....more
I completely agree with you that we have power to heal ourselves. I've taken a peek at your site ...more

The Doctor-Patient Relationship: Part Two

Last week I wrote about the Doctor-Patient Relationship of the broken, outdated, patriarchal health care system of The Old Medicine.Today, I’m going out on a limb to suggest a new kind of Doctor-Patient Relationship, the kind I practice and I hope others in The New Medicine do too. Here goes nothing.It’s All About Collaboration...more

Are Anti-Depressants Good or Evil?

I’m sitting in the green room, about to appear on Daytime TV, and the television is blaring in the background. Now mind you, I don’t have television in my home so I’m a bit out of the loop. But since I’ve been sitting here, I’ve seen one anti-depressant ad after another (mixed in with ads for lawyers who want to help you sue your doctor if you had complications from your anti-depressant). WTF? ...more
I found myself relating to many of you because I also suffer from severe chronic pain along with ...more

Is Alternative Medicine Just a Placebo?

As someone who supports many forms of alternative medicine, included many alternative medicine practitioners in my integrative medicine practice at the Owning Pink Center, and empowers my patients to seek out treatments based on the guidance of their healing inner wisdom (I call it your “Inner Pilot Light”), this statement in an article on CNN caught my eye:...more

"Living" With Endometriosis (If You Want to Call it Living)

Before you go running for the antibacterial wipes I just want to let you know that I’m not contagious. What I have is not catching. What I’m about to relay will not travel through your computer’s innards as a deadly Trojan virus or spread through the air like an uncovered sneeze. It’s called stage IV endometriosis and according to the information traffic jam, over 70 million women around the world live with it every day and, I’m guessing another 50 million or so women don’t even know they have it....more

How To Treat Insomnia Naturally

We’ve all been there. You go to bed right on time, knowing the alarm will jar you awake 8 hours later. You’ve got a big presentation in the morning. Or your grad school interview is the next day. Or you just know the baby will be waking you soon. So it’s critical that you fall asleep - now....more

Does Coffee Cause Cancer?

It’s not just cell phones the WHO calls carcinogens. Now, according to this article, they’ve added coffee and pickled veggies to the list as well.Most of us aren’t chowing down regularly on pickled veggies, so I’m guessing this finding won’t wind up all over Twitter and Facebook. But, uh…coffee? How ‘bout that cup a joe, love?...more
