Oriental medicine was not developed in a laboratory. It does not advance through double-blind controlled studies, nor does it respond well to petri dish experimentation. Our medicine did not come from the statistical regression of randomized cohorts, but from the observation and treatment of individuals in their particular environment. It grows out of an embodied sense of understanding how life moves, unfolds, develops and declines. Medicine comes from continuous, thoughtful practice of what ...

It starts the day, while ones evening cannot be finished before having it before the night is over. Hell, the British invaded India for this very reason. Nothing exemplifies south Asia like this hot cup of relaxation where some of the most captivating discussions take place that could change the world night ...
 
30 minutes inside the mind of a Catholic Christian, dad, husband and nerd. Not the best. Not the worst. Probably a lot like you. Each week, I look at something happening now or currently in my head. Then I take a deeper dive into a single topic: philosophy, the Bible, theology, parenting, career, society, questions or guest interviews. Whatever I pick, it usually ends up being something to which we can all relate, and that matters. MY last segment looks at something old, which is usually a m ...

His book, The Recruiter, is based…
 
Leaves on a plant curl and turn yellow when the soil is not right. The health of a cat is reflected in the texture of its fur and clearity in the eyes.

And so over the centuries we’ve learned to t…
