  • How the Body Heals – Part 2

    What makes us sick, and who, or what, can make us well? In a very real sense, our thoughts and emotions hold the key. Think about it—when you suppress your guilt, shame, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions… can they make you sick? Recent medical findings overwhelmingly conclude that in fact, they do. We now […]

  • The Healing Within You

    Recently I was asked by a reader to discuss the science of healing. It’s a pretty hefty request, so let’s boil it down to basics: The first thing to note is that healing is not a scientific domain. It may surprise you to know that the concept of “healing” is rarely discussed in medical schools. […]

  • The Link Between Emotional and Physical Health

    Studies now prove that your emotions are inextricably linked to your physical well-being. Think of how your blood pressure rises significantly when you feel anxious or threatened. High blood pressure has become a major problem for many people, and it’s a pretty clear example of what is called the mind-body connection. When emotional health is unbalanced, it consumes […]

  • Integrative Medicine is the Wave of the Future

    The medical field is rapidly transforming. It’s now more accepting of a more integrative approach to healthcare. Foundations, colleges and universities, research institutions, and the federal government are creating initiatives to explore, research and develop a new patient-driven approach to care. Integrative medicine recognizes the importance of modern scientific treatment as well as the state of an individual’s mind […]

  • Quantum Physics and Life

    For the better part of three centuries, Newtonian principles have dominated the worlds of science and academia. These principles and discoveries led to the discipline we call physics, and since the time of Newton himself, the physical sciences have been regarded as completely proven and verifiable. In physics, the science of mechanics is divided into […]

  • Rebuilding Your Body and Brain

    Did you know that the body you lived in yesterday is different than the one you’re in today?  In a process called cellular mitosis the cells in your body birth new cells repeatedly and die off naturally throughout your lifetime. In fact, in a few years you’ll have a completely rebuilt body altogether.  Some cells […]

  • The Placebo Effect

    Research studies published in medical journals report that there are anti-depressant medications on the market that register no measurable results in clinical trials.  The assertion has been made that a “placebo effect” may be responsible for the benefits that the retail users of those medications report to their doctors.  You probably know that a placebo […]

  • Inner Intelligence

    In his book The Secret of the Ages, Robert Collier asserts that the mind is master and commander of the body because a subconscious “inner intelligence” directs and controls every function in the body. For example, it knows how much sodium and potassium you need to balance the regulation of the sodium ion pump, a […]

  • The Magnificence of Modern Science

    In my last post, I talked about the philosophy and teachings of the Greek physician Hippocrates, the man considered to be the father of Western healing. Hippocrates advocated nature’s ability to heal illness and restore proper health to an individual. Across the world, eastern cultures also believed there is a natural healing source flowing within […]

  • Hippocrates: “Father” of Western Healing

    You’ve probably heard of the Greek physician Hippocrates, the man considered to be the father of Western healing and the first advocate for the rational study of disease. From him we get the “Hippocratic Oath” – a vow taken by all allopathic physicians as a commitment to “first, do no harm” to the patients they […]
