Safe travels on the healing journey to all. Physician-researcher, alternative medicine expert, author of Getting Whole, Getting Well: Healing Holistically from Chronic Illness.
As a doctor and a patient, I have seen the world of health care from both sides for most of my adult life. I have the pedigree – Harvard Magna Cum Laude, Stanford PhD and MD, Board-certification in Psychiatry, etc. But no formal education prepared me for the very human side of living with chronic illness. The journey took me early and often into the world of alternative medicine or holism. There I found safer treatments, no magic answers, and many moments of learning about truth from the inside out. I also learned that laughing is essential, andI love writing. So, although once aspiring to write the Great American Novel, I realized that I do much better with non-fiction. For the anxiously-inclined who love dogs and enjoy laughing, I wrote Chew on Things – It Helps You Think: Words of Wisdom from a Worried Canine and the Chew on Things Workbook for Fellow Worriers. For fellow travelers on the chronic illness road, I synthesized my understanding of alternative medicine into a blueprint or roadmap for finding and using treatments in a holistic way, Getting Whole, Getting Well: Healing Holistically from Chronic Illness.
