Re: [science-97] Intuitive Medicine

Jason and others,

I'm glad that the interest is there about intuitive medicine as it is a fascinating topic. Marsha may take a while to get back to you since she is in Peru right now on a spiritual, meditative retreat. How do I know this? She's my mom! So I really don't mind being the contact for her since we live in the same house. :)

Sorry I missed everyone last night, that event slipped past me and I never saw it coming!

Based in interest posted by Renee and others, I've taken the liberty of contacting Marsha Bloodworth. I think it is a great topic idea, and I would encourage everyone to bring their home remedies for health and wellbeing. I can facilitate a discussion if Marsha is unavailable having spent two years of my undergrad investigating why allopathic medicine (typical US model) has so little room for intuitive medicine models.

As a teaser:

1. did you know 70% of European doctors advocate/proscribe homeopathic remedies? Hippocrates had TWO axioms: "do no harm" and "like cures like". The second is the foundation of homeopathy.

2. if you have a stomach ache, chomp down some ginger root. That'll clear it up in moments (I don't travel overseas without it!)

3. Incidentally, did you know VoonDoon (or Voodoo) is a shamanic religious practice in Haiti of African decent? There has been rumors that the earthquake was a result of Loa activity...
