I have been a physician and scientist for 35 years and have practiced the scientific method throughout my career. I believe strongly in evidence-based medicine. However, I have come to understand that healing does not always mean prescribing a medication, ordering a diagnostic procedure or surgery. People’s minds are incredibly powerful influences on their bodies. Symptoms and ailments~fatigue, anxiety, depression, headaches, GI upset, unexplained pain in muscles; abdominal organs; back and joints are not always definable by a medical diagnosis. They can be symptoms of emotional imbalance that lead to an expression of somatic ailments as coping mechanisms.
