It's been a long break since the last Performing Healing post but all for a good cause: my first book, Delicious Healing was published just a couple of months ago and I am thrilled to share it here on this site with you.

Favorite Links— Dec 2016 edition

The tradition continues! In lieu of the standard article, quiz, and dance link, December’s edition of Performing Healing contains a list of my favorite links this season, as well as of course, a dose of dance.

Welcome! I’m glad you stopped by.

This site was originally created to offer up-to-date holistic medical knowledge, filtered through my experience as an Integrative holistic physician.  The site features my reviews of the latest published research on subjects ranging from nutrition to yoga to exercise to sleep and meditation, and how these areas influence different diseases and our holistic well-being.

The reviews offer both an easy-to-understand analysis of the research study in question, and my subjective take on it based on my personal experiences as well as as my professional understanding as a medical doctor. 

I also work as a dancer and I believe that art can be deeply healing.  As such, each article also has an offering of one of my  “poemdances” (dances crafted from original poetry) that I hope is soul-lifting for you. 

The site has now evolved as a reflection of my journey as a holistic doctor and dancer and now also includes posts that are a "special sauce blend" of my dance performance and holistic health tips. 

It is the intention of the site creators that when you visit this site, you find something that makes a positive difference in your health and life: empowering knowledge as well as heart-opening art.  It is all powerful medicine. 

Please enjoy.
