Acupuncture: An Ancient Medical Practice
Does It Belong in the Vivarium

Rigor and Transparency in Biomedical Research – How the NIH is Taking No Prisoners

I appreciate your interest in my work. Developing and writing the latest science articles – providing an objective look at Traditional Chinese Medicine and a close look at the disgraceful practice of massaging research results to fit funding criteria – I have been inspired as never before by research, investigation, interviews and reporting.  The work is invigorating and the results rewarding.

The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook

Notes continue to come in from people taking charge of bone health and for the first time feeling hopeful about arresting osteopoenia and osteoporosis – as I did six years ago.  We are so very happy that our work has helped people prevent and treat bone density decline.

“Calcium supplements and drugs are not the answer to preventing or treating osteoporosis. The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook has the answers that conventional medicine keeps missing. I highly recommend this terrific book.”–Christiane Northrup, MD, ob/gyn physician; author of Goddesses Never Age
