Book Review- In Defense Of Food, by Micheal Pollan
Five Rules of Thumb from the book, In Defense of Food

Gilda's Club

I had the wonderful opportunity to speak at Gilda's Club.  I was invited to speak at their beautiful clubhouse in Warminster on Tuesday evening.  The talk was very simply an introduction to Naturopathic Medicine, including the history of Naturopathic Medicine, the training of a Naturopathic Doctor,philosophy of healing, and the treatments we use to support the body to heal itself.  I talked on the benefits of Naturopathic care to support the patient who has been diagnosed with cancer.  The aim is to reduce the risk and or prevent recurrence.  Working in the area of oncology, Naturopathic Medicine recognizes the optimal use of all available and safe resources.  Some of these include diet and nutrition programs, daily movement, a healthy environment, mental and emotional support and techniques for self-care.   We also look to support the body to strengthen the immune response and decrease side effects of conventional therapies.  Naturopathic medicine works very well in conjunction with conventional medical treatments.
