I’m not alone in reeling from the fragmentation we are feeling and witnessing in our country. How did we lose our kindness and our connection to one another and accept beliefs…


I have been thinking so much about the signs of our times. As one who has always been an ‘out of the box thinker, I find myself looking for meaning and precision about the state of our country and the state of the world. Is there some meaning to be…


Since January of 2020, when the earliest recorded cases presented in the US, we have lost 600,000+ lives to this virus. The estimated global death toll is more than 4.12 million (as of July, 2021). Thankfully, mRNA vaccines have greatly reduced the transmission of nascent Sars-CoV2, offering those who are…


Dropping alcohol is the single most powerful change a person can make for reclaiming health. I emphasize the is in my medical practice to EVERY patient I see. Alcohol is a neurotoxin, a carcinogen, an immunosuppressant and increases blood sugar and belly fat. I am not sure why its intake has been normalized in society. I was horrified to see how many people increased their alcohol intake during the COVID Pandemic. Alcohol suppresses Natural Killer Cell numbers and activity (in the liver), the first responders that kill cancer cells, viruses and bacteria and also distinguish self from non-self. If NK cells are 'sleeping', viral load, cancer progression and spread and autoimmunity increases....pure logic.

Thank you for writing this very informative article. I will refer my patients to it as it is so well written.

I woke up this morning with my patients in my heart who are in the process of moving towards their freedom. So many women are leaving dysfunctional relationships right now. The state of the world is amplifying our need to transform and align with our essence.

The majority are leaving…

Two months into the COVID pandemic, physicians on the front lines were referred to as ‘Heroes’. Are physicians actually heroes? I have a perspective on this that is different from popular culture.

Most physicians are born with an instinct to heal. We run into danger, without concern for our own…


One of the reaons people are reacting this days, is due to the feeling of a ‘loss of control’. A pandemic for sure brings this to the fore. An invisible virus has paralyzed our world. This feeling of a ‘loss of control’ is at the heart of any conspiracy theory…
