Essential Oils – A sampling of the available Science

There seems to be some controversy surrounding the use of Essential Oils for anything beyond relaxation for massage therapy or for making a room smell nice.  Their medicinal properties go largely overlooked by mainstream medicine and mainstream media.  I believe that this is, at least in part, due to the lack of financial interest in […]

Supplement Overload

A Testimonial from a Patient

A Testimonial:   “I’ve had a stomach ache my entire life. I don’t remember a time when my stomach didn’t hurt.  I remember times when it got better for a while and I remember times of great stress when it became almost unbearable.  About 3 years ago was one of those times. I had recently […]

Your Doctor is No Super Hero

The Wonderful World of Gluten-Free

Me and My Gluten Sensitivity I came to this funny conclusion a couple of years ago that I have a Gluten Sensitivity, likely of the non-celiac variety (NCGS).  This falls under the umbrella of “Gluten-Related Disorders”.  Hardly recognized by the conventional medical establishment (of which I am part of) and nothing that I had ever […]

A Topsy-Turvy Healthcare World: A Physician’s Perspective
