Yet another study has come out that touts the health benefits of soy, specifically with regards to reducing body fat and inflammation.  Here are my take home points of the study as well as some of my cautions about soy:

 

    Welcome! I’m glad you stopped by.

    This site was 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. 

    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.  Both are powerful medicine. 

    Please enjoy.
