Healing: In a moment

August 21, 2011


Healing and curing are defined similarly but are very different.  Curing is the removal of symptoms, allowing the patient to be free from pain, suffering, etc.  In this, the patient’s source of discomfort has been removed so that the patient can be more “comfortable.”  However, any discomfort is a wake-up call and if it is […]

Raw: The ultimate diet?

November 15, 2010


Eating raw becomes more and more popular every day. And so, is there truth to this claimed-to-be, ultimate cure-all, heal-all diet? Yes and no. Yes, raw foods are great for our bodies. And no, a 100% raw foods diet is not a healthy & balanced way of life. I know, that’s a pretty unpopular position […]

Hydrotherapy: Magic Socks Treatment

November 10, 2010


I recommend this so often, I thought it was about time I write a post about it. This simple treatment is “magic”- hence the name. And… it was actually the one therapy in school that I absolutely could not fathom trying. But once I tried it, I continued every night for 2 1/2 months non-stop! […]

November 7, 2010

Canola Oil: not as healthy as touted

Canola Oil has for years been considered one of the healthiest oils to use.  Canola = canadian + oil. Canola oil is produced by hybridizing rape seed to not have a molecule called erucic acid. Erucic acid is toxic and hence has to be removed before safe for human consumption.  And because of this hybridization, […]

The “forbidden” medicine

December 22, 2009


Homeopathy is often viewed by allopathic doctors as “fringe” or unexplainable and unreasonable. It’s true, it is probably furthest from the “sensical” allopathic medicine.

The health-care “crisis”

October 27, 2009


Considering that health care is quite a hot-topic these days, I figured I would say a few words about that… is a public option at worst or single-payer at best, going to solve the health-care crisis? I doubt it. We don’t need more “access” to pills to shove down our throats.  Yes, there is a […]
