The Covid Vaccine Flashback

For the past several weeks I have been asking my patients about their reactions to the Covid-19 vaccine and some patients have reported a curious phenomenon. Usually after their second dose of the vaccine, they may experience a kind of flashback to an old symptom. It could be a pain in an old surgical scar

2019 – 2022: The COVID Years

The COVID years start in 2019 and not in 2020 when the World Health Organization declared a world-wide pandemic. COVID also predates the December 2019 announcement by the Chinese government of the first cases of the disease. In November 2020, Italian researchers used blood collected for a lung cancer screening study which started in September

The Homeopathic Treatment of COVID-19

Every winter for the past 25 years, I have published a newsletter called, “ Flu Watch”. It is a way of informing my patients about which homeopathic remedies are effective for that year’s flu. The method is based on the advice given by Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, way back in 1810. After treating

Strontium Citrate for Osteopenia

For several years now alternative doctors have recommended strontium citrate as a supplement in the treatment of osteopenia and as a preventive against osteoporosis. I used to recommend it as well but then stopped because I couldn’t find any research on its use for osteoporosis prevention. Every time I contacted supplement manufacturers about their research claims, they sent me articles on Strontium Ranelate, a drug approved in Europe for the treatment of osteoporosis.  But strontium citrate is not Strontium Ranelate and I am not a big fan of “borrowed science”.  I dislike any kind of intellectual “bait and switch” so I persisted in my pursuit of any information on the benefits of strontium supplementation.

Get Grounded!

A few weeks ago, I came across this interesting book.  Earthing is a book about the health benefits of a deceivingly simple process – grounding ourselves to the earth. It was written by a retired cable TV executive, Clint Ober, who wondered what would happen if we weren’t so insulated from the earth. He conducted some simple experiments on himself and his friends and confirmed that, in fact, he and his friends felt better.

Cancer and Homeopathy

Although there are many references in the old and modern homeopathic literature about the treatment of cancer by homeopathic methods, most US homeopaths do not treat cancer. The reasons for this are several and varied but for me it is a matter of ethics. We simply do not have any clinical trials that would compare to the research of conventional methods of fighting cancer.  I don’t think it is ethical to offer homeopathy as the primary treatment for any malignancy.

Several weeks ago, a new magazine appeared in my waiting room. It is called GENOME. It is also available online at It is an interesting science magazine written for the general public and it features articles about genetics and cutting edge medicine. Just the ads from various cancer labs and hospitals will blow your mind. The Fall 2015 issue features an article entitled, Traces of the Past, concerning the emerging field of epigenetics. Epigenetics refers to molecular processes that leave durable marks on our DNA, altering the gene’s functioning independent of the DNA sequence.  If our genes are the instructions, then the epigenome is the punctuation. Some have likened the epigenome to software and the genome to computer hardware.
